BBC Lies About Gaza Victim

Is there a limit to the number of times the news media will act as willing accomplices for Palestinian propaganda?

Apparently not. The BBC, which has been an enemy of Israel for years, even going so far as to quote as an authority noted Israel hater Richard Falk, who has compared Israelis to Nazis, has now been caught cutting a video showing a “victim” of the Israeli attack on Gaza being carried out, seriously wounded.

One problem. In the same video thirty seconds later, the same man is standing on his own two feet.

It’s a miracle!

The BBC’s hostility to Israel has been evidenced by acts like these:

  1. BBC journalist Barbara Plett said she “started to cry” when Yasser Arafat left Israel and traveled to France for medical treatment in 2004.  
  2. In 2006, reporter Orla Guerin lied that the town of Bint Jbeil, Lebanon, had been “wiped out” by the Israeli air force.  It later turned out that the suburbs were left virtually untouched.
  3. When the Fogel family of five was butchered in their home, including a baby girl in her bed, in Itamar, the BBC barely mentioned it, saying that it had been a “very busy news period.”
  4. On October 5th of this year, Jeremy Bowen, the BBC’s Middle East Editor, retweeted a tweet by  one Joseph Dana, who was “curious that Israeli forces can fire tear gas and use stun grenades next to the Al Aqsa mosque and the story doesn’t make international waves.” The chances of this happening are slim and none; the Al Aqsa Mosque is one of the most explosive places on earth. What actually happened was this: several hundred Arab worshippers stoned the Israeli police, an Arab man tried to stab a police officer, and then the Israeli police dispersed the crowd. Of course, Dana lives in Ramallah, and hates Israel so much that, when he spoke in November 2011 at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, he stated that he had managed to extricate himself from  a “Zionist indoctrination programme.”

No wonder the BBC thinks a Palestinian acting a part is really wounded. The BBC has been acting like an objective news source for years.

BBC is already been known as a major source of bias news in regards to anti Israel propaganda. Nothing new there candle.

FYI, CNN has been caught using the same video. But, at least they admitted to the mistake.

Canada PM Harper stated the fault of this conflict is totally Hamas. In fact, that goes the same for England's and Germany's PMs as well as Harper.

And for that matter her beloved Fox news is no different.

Edited footage to make something look different? Obama's "You didn't build that" speech?

Or when there were Occupy protest that were peaceful in other countries and they decided to instead show violent protest from Greece to make it look worse than it was.

Editing footage/misrespenting the footage is bad no matter who does it. But as long as it is legal to lie on news it will keep happening.

You're correct.

Fox News goes without even saying.

There were actually (a good number) of very peaceful protest in the Middle East regarding "the movie" two months ago. No one reported on those ... In fact, one of the largest was in Tehran, that had a good number of Christians and Jews involved in that protest. Yet, no one reported on this by anyone.

 All media is biased. I'm not sure why we even discuss this sort of stuff. It's hardly a shock to me. I worked for the  media for over a decade. Believe me, ALL MEDIA IS BIASED. Some are just worse than others.

I usually don't involve myself in these debates anymore because you just can't discuss them civilly.  The passions run deep on both sides.   You cannot seem to find objectivity from any news source.  So read them all, listen to them all and try to come to a logical conclusion.   Both sides hold truths and both sides hold lies. And both sides hold manufactured news and we know many have hostilities against both Israelis and Palestinians.

Yep, pretty much is this.

Watch CNN,BBC,FOX and etc, but remember the truth is somewhere in the middle, nothing is white on black

So was the lie that the guy wasn't a victim, that he wasn't seriously injured, or that there was an attack?

I guess this is saying that it was a lie that he was seriously injured because he was able to stand up a few min. after the video?

I guess i don't consider mislabling the level of an individuals injury to be a crime against the nation.
