Bias in favour of Israel
Following the bus attack in Tel Aviv today the only voices heard on BBC News are in support of Israel. Three interviews come from representatives of the Zionist authorities and one from a British tourist clearly supportive of the Israeli policy of oppression and brutality against Gaza. Then William Hague condemning the bombing. Why no one condemning the massive increase in Israeli attacks?
Your presenters portray this bus bomb as an escalation likely to endanger peace negotiations when in the last 12 hours Israel has massively increased its attacks on Gaza. All the time you fail to point out the grossly disproportionate violence from Israel and although your report the facts (5 Israeli deaths, 150 Palestinian deaths) you skip over this in editorialising as if there is equality of responsibility.
Israel is a brutal, oppressive regime in breach of 64 UN resolutions, regularly murdering many times more Palestinians than are killed by its resistance. You fail entirely to remind viewers of this context and of the illegal nature of Israeli policy
