Non-news News

Pleased to see that CBC had an article on the Palestinian hunger strike, but, given CBC's profound bias, not surprised that it provided no context to the issue. No details on abuses of prisoners. No recognition that most of the prisoners are political prisoners who were just resisting Israeli oppression and injustices. No comment on the number of child prisoners and their abuse.

CBC calls this corrupted, incomplete news as news. Any informed reader will know better.

Also in the same day CBC reported on an Israeli air strike near Damascus. It was an illegal attack, but CBC, of course, gives Israel a free pass (remember the Holocaust!) to ignore international law with impunity. So when it reports that others have described the attack as an illegal aggression, CNC puts aggression in scare quotes implying it is ridiculous to ever describe Israel as an aggressor.

What do you expect?

CBC's Derek Stoffel won a Zionist journalism prize for his Middle East reporting, so his latest article published on fits his pattern;

U.S. allies in Middle East welcome Trump's missile launch

This article makes no mention of the dangers to the entire world, INCLUDING TO CANADIANS, of Trump's attack on Syria. It goes on at great length how happy the Israelis are about Trump attacking another neighbour of Israel. Does Stoffel really believe Canadians are happy to risk WWIII just to make Israelis happy?

The facts that Stoffel ignores are that Trump was breaching international law; that the US action is only likely to make things worse in Syria, and that Trump is risking a war with Russia. So what if all this makes Israel so happy! Israel also pays no attention to international law, and Israel wants to see the situation in Syria get worse, so of course Israel is happy.

But when will CBC begin to report events that threaten the lives of Canadians from a Canadian perspective, rather than a Zionist one? We can only hope that day will come.

Small Potato Gets Big Cheese Coverage

Why does CBC headline an article with a big picture of Netanyahu when it refers to the reaction of a dozen different countries, every one of them bigger and more important than Israel?

Here is the headline:

Netanyahu 'fully supports' Trump: World reaction to U.S. using cruise missiles

Britain, France and Israel express varying degrees of support; Iran and Russia opposed

I will spare you the ugly picture of Netanyahu.

CBC consistently gives Israel and Netanyahu coverage that they do not deserve. It must be a conscious attempt to legitimize and aggrandize this petty fascist and his Apartheid country. Why does CBC want to do this?

Repeating Falsehoods Good Propaganda

CBC refuses to tell the truth about how Hamas took over Gaza. Here are its words on April 7th:

"Hamas has executed 25 people sentenced under its judicial system since 2007, when it took over Gaza in bloody street battles from forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas."

The truth is that Hamas won the Palestinian elections but Fatah, under Abbas, tried to deny them their democratic victory. They lost the West Bank to the unelected Fatah by force, but were able to keep Gaza only by fighting for what they had already legitimately won.

There must be a reason why CBC refuses to tell the truth here.
