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.

Is CBC trying to be Funny

Look at this headline. It is so typical:

Israel strikes Gaza sites in response to airborne 'arson kites'

Flaming kites and balloons launched from Gaza have destroyed forests, killed livestock, Israelis say

Israel is always responding. Israel is never provoking. The Palestinians are assumed to do nasty things for no reason whatsoever, except perhaps their untermenschen irrationality. The Israeli, the superior beings, are reluctantly forced to "respond".

It would be humorous, if this upside down reporting did not actually work at convincing people that the opposite of reality is the reality.

Tiananmen Masacre and Gaza Massacre

It is useful to compare the media and political reaction to the two above massacres.

They both involve the mass killing of unarmed demonstrators, although probably the number of seriously wounded in Gaza is much higher. did not quote Chinese sources repeatedly justifying and misrepresenting the massacre, the way they did Israeli sources. made a big deal about the Chinese massacre with reporting continuing in-depth for weeks. But for CBC the Gaza Massacre is already old news.

CBC Tells Lies

Today's article is chock full of Zionist bias and lies:

At least 3 Palestinians killed in protests near Gaza-Israeli border

Where to begin?

Notice the headline just says "killed" - does not mention that Israeli snipers did the killing. Also the photo shows wildly behaving Palestinians suggesting that their violence was the cause of all the killing, which is the opposite of the truth.

CBC repeatedly quotes Israeli sources even though their claims are either false or inane:

         Israel says Gaza's Hamas leaders are using the protests as cover to carry out attacks.

         Israel said Gaza militants opened fire and struck an Israeli military post. No injuries were reported.

"At the expense of the people of Gaza, the Hamas terrorist organization continues using terror in order to damage security infrastructure and harm security forces," it said, 

 Israel has accused Hamas of trying to carry out attacks and damage the fence under the guise of the protests. Hamas leaders have threatened possible mass border breaches, raising concern in Israel that communities near Gaza might be at risk.

CBC goes on to say they saw Israeli snipers firing warning shots in the air, but nowhere has the space or ink to state the simple fact that not a single Israeli citizen or soldier suffered even a scratch or a bruise, while thousands of Palestinians were injured and over 120 killed. 

All this CBC and Zionist talk about a mass border breach is pure nonsense. That was never the intention because it would have resulted in mass suicide. The fact is that Israelis have no compassion for Palestinians and would butcher any fence crossers, whether women or children, with out any hesitation.

The use of Holocaust outfits by Palestinians is very clever, and should be praised, as another non-violent means of expressing the situation. Instead CBC emphasizes the hurt this will cause Jews and Israelis. Bullets through Palestinian bodies does not concern CBC as much as dressing up as Holocaust victims. this strategy is brilliant, because that is exactly the story that should be told - Jews in Israel are acting like Nazis.

CBC tells outright lies, stated as facts simply because these lies were first told by Israelis:

The protests have largely been organized by Hamas and to some extent by the smaller Islamic Jihad militant group. 

This is absolutely not true. A group of 20 Gaza organizations of which only two had any direct affiliation with Hamas organized the "Great March" - BTW, CBC does not think it worthwhile calling the protests by their own name.

And note weird use of English by CBC:

Israel's use of potentially lethal force against the protesters has drawn international criticism.

"Potentially"??? What world does CBC live in. Snipers shooting people is not a potential use of lethal force.
