It would be nice if CBC or some other media would comment on the fact that the recent knife attacker in Canada, a full grown man, was disarmed without being harmed, while in Israel, even children are butchered on the spot if they wave a knife.

CBC.ca finally published a piece on BDS that was honest and reasonable:
The BDS motion and Canada's relationship with Israel
The Liberal government has broken with much of the Conservatives' rhetoric on several foreign policy issues
By Steven Zhou, for CBC News
But this was only found on the Manitoba page, not on the national pages.
But another sign that CBC wants to keep the truth about BDS as hidden as possible.

Last night I saw an excellent film, "Suffragette" which portrayed the history of women's struggle to get the vote in the UK.
In the movie I learned for the first time that the British media was prevented from reporting on the activities of the Suffragettes and this severely limited their impact.
The same thing applies in the case of Palestinians. The media hides their story from the public, and works on the side of the people who seek to suppress their freedom. CBC is guilty of this. But the government is not ordering CBC to deceive the Canadian public. The decision is being made inside the organization itself. But by whom?
Today we find it hard to believe that women were not allowed to vote. Some day we will find it hard to believe that Israel was able to do so much evil and hide it from the world so effectively.
CBC has never yet published a fair portrayal of the BDS movement. It hardly mentions it at all, but never without including in the same article the false, ridiculous and unethical smear that it is somehow anti-Semitic. Would CBC have so religiously included claims that the South African boycott was anti-white in their articles, or that Gandhi's boycott of British colonialism was anti-Christian. No, because these claims would be ridiculous. But CBC never fails to "balance" any mention of BDS with the anti-Semitism smear.
BDS will live or die on media coverage. It is primarily designed to get media coverage o the suffering of Palestinians. Every effort that CBC makes to hide BDS, or ignore BDS, or repeat ridiculous smears against BDS, is a direct attack on Palestinians.
CBC has not yet replied at all to my complaint of several weeks ago, but today there is another strange report, full of fuzzy details, based almost entirely on questionable Israeli sources:
Police kill 2 Palestinians in Jerusalem gun attack
Palestinians shooting all over town and hitting nothing, then getting shot themselves????
A stabbing spree in Jaffa that killed an American, but no other details???
A paragraph describing attacks on Israel since September 2015 which killed 28 Israelis as almost an isolated incident, without mentioning the fact that the West Bank has been under seige and attack for almost 50 years by Israeli forces. And of course CBC would not want to report the fact that over 40 Palestinian CHILDREN have been killed by Israeli forces during this same time period.
A week ago a 13-year old Palestinian girl walked into a forbidden zone, an illegal Israeli settlement near her village, and was killed in cold blood. A 13-year old girl! She never touched anyone. The Israelis said she was carrying a knife. Why would we believe them? But CBC never bothered to report this.
The Israeli democracy Institute conducted a poll of Israelis and found that 52% of Israeli Jews believe that any Palestinian attacker of Israelis should be executed on the spot even after he is totally disarmed and harmless. This is NEWS, CBC. 52% believe in extrajudicial execution of unarmed, harmless people, many of them children! Are these Israelis really people like us? Should we love Israeli lives more than Palestinian lives? Please CBC tell us why you think so.
This poll goes a long way to explain why so many Palestinians are dying and so few Israelis in this so-called attack on Israel. CBC will never say it, because CBC lets the Israelis do the talking for them, but probably a high percentage of the killed Palestinian attackers were executed on the spot, even though they were no longer a threat to anyone.
Really CBC, do you believe, when a group of full-armed Israeli soldiers execute two unarmed 15 year old boys for throwing rocks that they will actually tell the world that this is what happened?
If you believe this, then say so, in your answer to my Ombudsman complaint.
