Why Report Trump Nonsense

Here is a big CBC headline today:


Trump says he supports 2-state solution for Israel, Palestinians


This means absolutely nothing - zilch - nada. Why make it a headline?


The Israelis have effectively killed the two-state solution. Trump has helped with the killing. Just talking bullshit is part of their strategy to continue the destruction. It is lying. It is bullshit. It should not be treated by CBC as meaningful in any way, and certainly does not rate a headline.


Unless CBC wants to be fully complicit in maintaining the bullshit, and facilitating the continued killing.

CBC Weak, Flawed Coverage of BDS

In today's article CBC showed its profound inadequacy and weakness in its discussion of performers who respond to the BDS boycott of Israel;


The dilemma Lana Del Rey and others face performing in Israel


First the article has no quotation or input from any Palestinian advocate of BDS, but quotes at length a well-known extreme Zionist professor, Aurel Braun, with his inane, unsubstantiated comments that BDS "stands in the way of peace", and that it supports "hardliners". Absolutely ridiculous comments with no evidence being offered. Why would CBC give this dotard such a platform?


The other Zionist quoted is the extremist Rabbi Shmuley with his libellous accusations that Lorde is a "bigot". This is based on the notion that those who criticize Israel are anti-Semitic. This is an absolutely ridiculous proposition, because the opposite is true. It is the bigoted Zionists that oppress Palestinians and the supporters of Palestinians who are not racists dedicated to the defence of their own tribes, but open-minded supporters of justice for ALL - not just for their tribe. Why does CBC repeat the dirt that Shmuley is slinging? Shame on CBC, and we Canadians that pay its bills.


The biggest commission in the article is mention of the fact that recently the Israelis destroyed one of the main playhouses in the West Bank because it did not like the content of its performances. If Israel destroys theatre in Palestine, that alone is good enough reason to not play in Israeli theatres. Is CBC ignorant of this fact, or willfully ignoring it. Most likely the latter.


Also one person quoted says that it is OK to play in Israel, even if you disagree with its politics, just as he plays in the USA while disagreeing with Trump. But there is a huge difference. The BDS campaign is like a PICKET LINE that decent people should not cross. The Palestinians are begging for international support against their oppression and have created in effect a picket line. There is no such picket line in the USA.


If CBC cannot publish anything better than this on BDS, I suppose we should be grateful that CBC largely ignores it.

Is CBC for Canada or USA?

It is quite sad that CBC has given so much coverage to John McCain, a man with the blood of thousands of innocents on his hands. Let the Americans honour him if they must, but we Canadians should see him for what he was, an unabashed war monger and American imperialist. CBC should ignore the death and funeral of this horrible killer - he is not Canadian, thank God, and we do not need to honour him.


But CBC is ignoring the continuing slaughter of Palestinians by Israel, on the Gaza border and elsewhere.


Has Canada become an American clone? Do we honour mass murderers, like the Americans do, and ignore brave youths who are killed standing up for their human rights? 


What have we become, or better yet, what does CBC want to make of us?

CBC typically joins the defamation

Jewish groups in Britain have falsely and disgustingly tried to portray Jeremy Corbyn as an anti-Semite because he has been a strong advocate for Palestinian rights and a critic of Israel's most egregious policies and practices.


This is not even by the wildest stretch of the imagination anti-Semitism. This is simple decency.


The attack on Corbyn is indecent in the extreme, but CBC wants to play along by publishing this;


Britain's Jeremy Corbyn blasted after new statement on wreath-laying for Palestinian militants


This is what we have to expect from Zionist CBC.

Who is retaliating?

The Israelis killed 130 demonstrators, mostly unarmed civilians in the last few months .


But when the Palestinians kill one Israel, CBC describes the Israeli actions as "retaliation" in this headline:


Israeli soldier killed by gunmen, retaliatory airstrikes kill 4 Palestinians


Why does CBC never describe the actions of the Palestinians, who are the true victims in this scenario, as "retaliation"? CBC sees the world through a Zionist prism, but we need to ask why is this?

Sloppy CBC reporting

In today's article there are several examples:


"The military said a "terrorist squad" fired at troops, and one soldier was severely injured and later died of his wounds."


There is NO WAY the shooting of a soldier imposing an illegal blockade meets any reasonable definition of terrorism. This Zionist doublespeak that should not be quoted or repeated.


Another example:


"The militant Islamic Hamas that rules Gaza said three of the dead were members of the group."


CBC always needs to use the unnecessary adjectives "militant Islamic" in front of Hamas. Why not use the same adjectives in front of any mentions of the Israel Government which is equally "militant".


Another example:


"At least 135 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the border protests began on March 30. The UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs says a "large number" of the casualties were among unarmed demonstrators."


CBC uses this quote of 'a large number". Actually the vast majority of those killed were unarmed demonstrators and this expression, 'a large number" hides the criminal reality for which Israel should be sanctioned.

Nice use of language

The massacre that Israel perpetrated by sniping across the border fence is described as "fighting" by CBC:


The West Bank, where Palestinians have limited self-rule, has been largely quiet in recent months, in contrast to surges of fighting along Israel's frontier with Gaza, an enclave ruled by Abbas's main Palestinian rival, the Hamas Islamist group.



Can you imagine CBC describing the Tiananmen Massacre as simple "fighting". Zionist control of the media means the Palestinian story never gets told, and that is crime.
