One-sided reporting

Here is the very top headline on today:

Just think how many reports critical of Israel's despicable behaviour in the summer 2014 massacre of Palestinians that CBC not only did not put in a headline, but did not even report on.

But this report on Hamas gets top billing. Nasty things were done on both sides, but Israel's crimes were ten times worse, yet CBC gives the Palestinians top billing for criminal behaviour.

If this is not biased, one-sided, misleading propagandistic reporting then I wonder what is.

Disingenuous Headline is still working for the Israel propaganda machine. On May 26th this was a major headline online:

Israeli PM Netanyahu offers to restart peace talks with Palestinians with settlement focus, official says

This is meaningless news. Netyanyahu's terms are unacceptable and simply ridiculous, and will yield zero positive result. The only purpose of this claim is to create the appearance of willingness to negotiate peace.

CBC by trumpeting it in a major headline which might stick in people's minds as a positive move is simply doing Zionist propaganda again.

Headline - Anti-Semitism Again places a huge priority on Jewish things, while generally ignoring Muslim suffering. Here is the headline on May 24th:

Anti-Semitism in Malmö reveals flaws in Swedish immigration system

Jewish community centre has been under armed guard, a rabbi attacked, and few want to talk about it

Nowhere in the article does it even suggest that animosity towards Jews by Muslims is motivated by humiliation and abuse from Israel which is generally supported by Jews outside of Israel. Anti-Semitism is an irrational hatred, and it does not accurately describe the animosity towards Jews which is motivated by extremes of abuse by Jews against the community of their attackers.

They are not the same thing, and somewhere CBC should say so. Not saying so is playing the Zionist propaganda game - they attack us just because we are Jewish - no other reason, just pure unjustified anger and hatred. This is bullshit.

Jews and Israel are the least suffering of the victims in the Jewish-Muslim conflict, and CBC should stop equating attacks on Jews in Sweden and elsewhere with traditional anti-Semitism. It is a lie.

Unemployment in Gaza had a short report on the horrendous unemployment statistics in Gaza that were just released, but the CBC report was phrased as if to point the major blame for this on Hamas rather than on Israel which is the NUMBER ONE cause of all the suffering in Gaza.

Here is some of the misleading reporting:

"Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade on Gaza after Hamas violently seized the territory from forces loyal to the Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Israel says the blockade is necessary to prevent Hamas from getting weapons and building militant infrastructure, while critics say it amounts to collective punishment.

Since its takeover, Hamas has fought three wars with Israel, including 50 days of fighting last summer in which thousands of Gaza buildings were either destroyed or damaged. Over 2,200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the war. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed."

Hamas won a legitimate election to be the democratically-elected government. CBC's wording here is a bald-faced lie.

The events in Gaza were not "wars"; they were Israeli massacres; far too one-sided to be called "wars" This is misleading.

And nowhere does the article report that Israel has denied entry to all building supplies to Gaza thus forcing all the residents of the buildings that Israel destroyed to still be living in tents and makeshift shelters eight months after the massacring stopped.

Of course, if no building materials are allowed in, there is no chance of local people being employed in construction and rebuilding.

Why did CBC even bother to report on this tragedy for the people of Gaza if CBC could not put their suffering into some meaningful context???

Palestinian saints

The article on this states that Christians in the Middle East are being driven out my Muslim extremists.

When I was in Palestine the Christians that I met said they were being driven away by Israeli abuses, not Muslim extremists.

But CBC would never report that.

Nakba Day

Yesterday was Nakba Day. The day which commemorates the suffering of the Palestinian people at the hands of Israel, especially the mass expulsions and massacres perpetrated against them in the 1940s. regularly reports in detail on all kinds of Israeli news. Recently they had articles on Israelis airlifting babies from Nepal.

Nakba Day is legitimate Israel-related news. But will not report it.

There are regular articles on the Holocaust, which happened 70 years ago, but nothing on the Nakba which is still ongoing.

Have you no shame, CBC?

Nothing on UN Report made it headline news when Hamas was accused of war crimes for indiscriminate firing of its firecracker rockets into Israel.

Last August Israel killed about 500 children. This can be forgotten.

But last week when the UN found Israel guilty of bombing a UN shelter in Gaza and killing 18 children in their beds, CBC did not think this worthy of reporting. Today more news worthy is the jailing of a Bollywood movie star for a hit and run incident.

CBC Never Stops

Headline news again on May 2nd:

Auschwitz convictions have been few and far between

Prosecutors adopt new strategy in trial of Oskar Groening, former SS Auschwitz guard

CBC has no time to report on prisoners in Israeli jails and the hundreds of Palestinians in them including children, or on the Palestinian teenager gunned down in cold blood last week for walking on his family farm, but they always have space to discuss the Holocaust.

CBC needs to clean up its act.

Missing Headline made it headline news when Hamas was accused of war crimes for sending rockets (fire crackers) indiscriminately into Israel last summer, but CBC does not think this worth reporting:

U.N. Finds Israel Responsible for 2014 Attacks on Gaza Shelters

This headline is from Al-Jazeera on May 1st.

Israel deliberately targeted a UN site full of children, killing 18 of them I just one of numerous cases. This is vastly more newsworthy.

Something stinks at and nothing apparently can be done about it,
