Suppose it was not Israel

In this article in CBC half the words reported were by defenders of Israel. It is even in the sub-heading:

Israel's response in Gaza was 'disproportionate': UN human rights chief

Israel, U.S. slam the UN session, with an American official calling the council 'a broken body'



Suppose the party that used snipers to execute hundreds and injure thousands of civilians who were protesting on their own side of a border fence were Chinese killing Tibetans?

Would CBC bend over so far backwards to give the Chinese side of the massacre? And while they are at it, perhaps CBC might want some day to outline and defend the Nazi side on the Holocaust.

Disproportionate text to Israel's defence

In today's article:

Israel's response in Gaza was 'disproportionate': UN human rights chief

Israel, U.S. slam the UN session, with an American official calling the council 'a broken body'


CBC gave half the text over to defenders of Israel's criminal behaviour. This was disproportionate. Israel's defence is weak to non-existent, so it did not deserve so much text. Even the sub-headline had wording to seriously weaken the truth and severity of the criticism of Israel's behaviour.

Why couldn't CBC just report the fact of the condemnation of Israel which was so rightly deserved?

You can be certain that if the UN criticized another country for obvious human rights abuses, CBC  would not spend half or more of the text giving arguments in defence of the obvious human rights abuser.

CBC does not mention Canadian injured

CBC's latest article has room to publish this crap:

More than 100 Palestinians have been killed since the demonstrations began on March 30. Hamas said Wednesday that 50 of its members were among the 60 people who died during Monday's violence.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Hamas should be held responsible for the deaths in Gaza.

"They're pushing civilians women children into the line of fire with a view of getting casualties," Netanyahu told CBS News. "We try to minimize casualties. They're trying to incur casualties in order to put pressure on Israel, which is horrible."


The vast majority of injured and killed were not Hamas members, but it suits Israel to make this claim, and it suits CBC's Zionists to repeat it often. What Netanyahu said was disgusting and ridiculous. You do not "minimize casualties" by killing unarmed [protestors who are over 100 meters from your border. Netanyahu belongs in the international Criminal Court charged with war crimes, and CBC should say so.

And in spite of having room for all this Israeli crap, Stofel could not find the space for mentioning the Canadian doctor that was injured, and the other doctor on his team who was killed. Stifle is supposedly writing for a Canadian audience, but because this bit of news is damaging to Israel, well, Israel always comes first for CBC - before even Canada.

Derek Stofel CBC reporter can't get the story straight

Here is what he wrote today:

Across Gaza, Palestinians are demanding action after 60 people were killed in a bloody day of violence on Monday. Israeli forces used live ammunition during mass protests to stop demonstrators from penetrating the barrier that separates Gaza from Israel.

This is Israeli bullshit. Israeli snipers were killing people that were nowhere near the fence, and who were not going to put even one toe across the border fence.

Israeli snipers were killing unarmed people to frighten them away from their protest demonstrations. Israel was saying with its bullets "Go home to your prison in Gaza or we will kill you."

Why does Stofel write this bullshit? Because he knows if you want to work in the media in Canada, and especially for CBC, you need to follow the Zionist narrative and repeat Israeli lines and misinformation.

Also in the article why is he quoting Netanyahu? This is a fascist, racist leader of killers who should be treated as a pariah, not endlessly quoted by CBC even when his remarks are stomach-churningly false and awful. The world hears far too much from this tinpot leader of an evil Mickey Mouse country. Someone should count up the words CBC has quoted from this turd and other Israeli mouthpieces and compare it to the number of words quoted from other much more honest, and respectable world leaders (and of course, that does not include Trump).

CBC Unbalanced

Today's article on the Gaza situation was full of meaningless crap quoting Israeli sources. It ignores the real story completely, by pretending the murdered Palestinians were mostly Hamas, as if the killing of unarmed protestors of that political affiliation, is somehow OK.

And CBC always makes this statement:

Gaza has been controlled since 2007 by Hamas, an Islamist group that denies Israel's right to exist and has fought three wars with Israel in the past decade. 


CBC has no space to report on the medics and journalists killed and injured by Israeli snipers (killers), but they have space for this.

So what if Hamas denies Israel's right to exist? Israel not only denies, but makes it impossible for Palestine's right to exist. Does CBC qualify every reference to the Israeli Government by saying it is making a Palestinian State impossible? Why qualify Hamas with this, but give Israel a free pass?

To be balanced CBC should a;ways qualify references to Israel by noting the settlements campaign which is stealing the last vestiges of a possible Palestinian State. 

CBC Employees - How do you sleep at night?

CBC has blood on its hands. CBC is complicit in war crimes. CBC covers up Israeli crimes against Palestinians, which makes it possible for them to be continued. 

Every peaceful Palestinian protestor in Gaza that has been killed, or seriously wounded, while CBC remains largely quiet or totally duplicitous, echoing Israeli bullshit, and ignoring the criminal nature of what is happening, has a right to blame CBC for his or her suffering.

And since we Canadians pay the bills at CBC (one might think Israel should be paying them), we are also complicit in this travesty.

I might have to discontinue this blog because reading the news these days is making me physically sick, and ashamed to be a Jew and a Canadian.

Why Was This Not in CBC.ca?

A Canadian citizen, clearly marked as a medic, was shot by Israeli snipers. His rescuer, another clearly marked medic, was shot in the chest and died. This information is relevant to Canadians, ands it clearly shows the criminality and brutality of Israel's behaviour, but it was not a top item in CBC.ca; it was not even an item.

It was a side story in "As it Happens":

Canadian shot in Gaza says he was 'clearly marked' as a doctor



CBC made a big deal, published over several days, of Abbas saying some things that seemed to sound anti-Semitic.That was big news for CBC. How terrible that the Palestinian leader says nasty things about Jews. It would be much more newsworthy if Abbas said nice things about Jews, considering the suffering Israel Jews and their Diaspora enablers, have cause Palestinians. That was hardly real news.

But when a Canadian is injured, that should be treated as top priority real news, but CBC chose to mostly ignore it.

CBC works for Israel, not for Canadians, and this is omission makes this very clear.
