Pro Palestinians "die" in Birmingham
The general consensus is that the BBC has been fairly impartial this time around, if we disregard their Middle East correspondents that is. Which is hard to do when the conflict is.... in the Middle East
From the land of fairies and unicorns (otherwise known as Birmingham) comes a disturbing press release from the 'West Midlands Palestine Solidarity Campaign'.
Remember how Lauren Booth said yesterday that the Tel Aviv bus bombing was a 'false flag' operation? Well the Palestine Solidarity Campaign seems to have its own theories as to the point of the whole conflict in general... and they want to take it out on the BBC!
Naeem Malik, the Chair of the WMPSC said, "I am amazed at the BBC coverage of the attack on Gaza.The BBC needs to know that it is all about the occupation, the siege, the house demolitions, the checkpoints and the continuous humiliation of the Palestinians for the last six decades and more. It has nothing to do with the rockets."
He is backed up by Brian Sheridan, Secretary of the WMPSC, who said, "Palestinians have the right to defend themselves.This war was started to allow Israel to test its new missile defence system."
News reaches Media Hawk that David Icke is spinning in his grave (Editor: Uh, David Icke isn't dead... or maybe that's what he WANTS us to think!)
The general consensus is that the BBC has been fairly impartial this time around, if we disregard their Middle East correspondents that is. Which is hard to do when the conflict is.... in the Middle East.
Nevertheless, because they haven't been running fake Hamas propaganda (oh, wait) - the PSC seem to believe their coverage has been in some way anti-Palestinian.
So tonight, they've planned to "die" outside the BBC's studio in Birmingham. 'Activists' will read out the names of Palestinian civilians who have been killed in the bombings over the past week and a group of children will hand in a protest letter to the BBC management.
It'll be a pretty short event, really - as civilian casualties have been minimalised by Israel while maximised by Hamas. Is this something the PSC will be telling the BBC to report?
