Reaction in BBC Gaza appeal row



The BBC's decision not to air a charity appeal for aid to Gaza has come in for fierce criticism.
Director general Mark Thompson has said by airing the appeal the BBC would risk reducing public confidence in its impartial coverage of the conflict.


Sky News has similarly declined to show the appeal, also citing incompatibility with its objective coverage of the conflict in Gaza.


Politicians have urged a review of the BBC's decision, and a crowd of 2,000 protested outside the BBC's London HQ.


"We are passionate about defending the BBC's impartiality and we worry with such an emotive and such a political story - the United Nations this morning describing it as a political crisis with humanitarian consequences.

We do want to cover the humanitarian story, we want to cover it in our news programmes where we can put it in context, we can do it in an even, carefully balanced, objective way.

We worry about being seen to endorse something which could give people the impression that we were backing one side. "

Be like me, do'nt pay the Browns Bullshitting Cunts (BBC) license fee.

Never have, never will.

Jew boy Greg Dyke is brown nosing to get back his old job by supporting Browns Bullshitting Cunts ' shameful decision.

Sky TV is taking the same line, but expect nothing better with a trecherous kike, Moneybags Murdock, pulling the strings.

Should the BNP or other nationalist party gain power it should bring in American-type anti-trust laws soley to smash Murdocks foul jewish media organs of hate, and other jewboy organisations.

Shows who runs it all - the Zionist lobby. No doubt Gri££in will be echoing the Israeli line as hard as he can in the hope of securing big buck$.

Here is a link to an article on the bbc that is worth a read. http://www.redress.cc/global/redress20090127
Briefly , according to the article, the bbc runs commercial T.V channels (not available to U.K viewers) and has been told by those who advertise on these commercial channels that they will cease to advertise if the bbc puts the Gaza appeal on. (I wonder who these advertisers are) Secondly the bbc directer general is married to a Jewess. I wonder if this challenges his impartiality.

Ahmadinejad slams West on Holocaust
Tue, 27 Jan 2009 19:20:31 GMT


President Ahmadinejad slams the West for blocking research on the Holocaust.
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Western countries have blocked research on the Holocaust to achieve their political objectives.

"Western countries have prevented any kind of research on the Holocaust for almost 60 years to maintain their dominance over other nations," President Ahmadinejad said in a written message to a conference on the Holocaust on Tuesday.

The Holocaust - as defined by the West - has been used as a tool for countries including the US to prevent the emergence of any other power in the world, the message added.

President Ahmadinejad has been accused of harboring ill-will towards Israel and his criticism of European laws which ban research on the Holocaust.

The President however said in a September interview with CNN's Larry King that he saw a line between Zionism and Judaism.

"Iranians have nothing against the Jewish people or their religion," President Ahmadinejad said. "How can you be religious and kill women and children at the same time?" he argued.

In the interview, President Ahmadinejad also added that the Israeli regime would disappear in the same way as apartheid South Africa and the Soviet Union.

Iranian officials have repeatedly maintained that they do not recognize Israel and have condemned West's 'support' of Tel Aviv.
