"Led by Hamas" - Who Says?

CBC never gives it a rest. It works tirelessly for its Zionist masters (but not for us Canadians that pay the bills). Look at this sub-headline:

Gaza officials say 2 killed by Israeli troop gunfire in border protests

The weeks-long protests, led by Hamas, are to culminate in a mass march on May 15

The protestors have said that they are not being led by Hamas - that there are citizens groups taking the lead. But Israel says Hamas is responsible, and Hamas is bad, so the protests are bad. So CBC has to add the totally unnecessary phrase "led by Hamas" in the sub-heading. Because for CBC  if Israel says it, it must be repeated and believed.

What CBC does not add, not even in a phrase like "led by Hamas" is a phrase like "Israeli war crimes", "cold-blooded murder by Israeli snipers". 

How about revising the above headline as follows: Gaza officials say 2 killed, in cold blooded murder, by Israeli SNIPER gunfire in border protests

NO CBC must add "led by Hamas" even if it is possibly untrue, but would never dream of adding "in an act of cold-blooded murder" even though it is absolutely true and obvious.

CBC weak attempt at balance

Little Israel rates a headline article for its Independence Day. There are almost 200 countries in the world. For the vast majority of them, CBC makes no comment on their Independence days., but little Israel is BIG in CBC's eyes.

Israel celebrates 70th anniversary of independent Jewish state

Day of celebration is sombre day of commemoration for Palestinians who lost 1948 Arab-Israeli war

Note the sub-heading. It is an Israeli interpretation of events, but CBC does not indicate this. It just states it as a fact. The real commemoration is of the Nakba, the disastrous campaign of ETHNIC CLEANSING carried out by Israel to get rid of Palestinians who had lived in the area for generations if not millennia.

The article indicates that Palestinians and Israeli scholars have documented and proven that there was a brutal, even murderous, campaign of ethnic cleansing that created the Nakba, but CBC feels it is necessary to quote Israeli sources that repeat the myth and lies that the exodus was simply the result of a "war". And CBC chose to reflect this bullshit in its sub-heading above.

Also while Israelis are celebrating their state, they also have snipers on the Gaza border daily committing war crimes - something to be ashamed of enough to dampen their celebratory mood. But not for racists, which is what most Israelis are as well as CBC and all its Zionists handlers. They are all racists, who if called out for their racism, immediately start screaming "anti-Semitism" at the very people who are the least racist on earth - non-Muslim, non-Arab supporters of justice for Palestinians are the diametric opposite of racists. The Zionists are the arch-racists.

Thank you Neil MacDonald

CBC actually published something decent on the Israel- Palestine situation;

Call me radical, but journalists should be able to pledge support for Palestinian journalists: Neil Macdonald

Apparently, though, taking such a position in Canada can damage our credibility, and should be avoided

Neil MacDonald reported on the unwillingness of other CBC journalists to publish criticism about Israel even when Israel is butchering their journalist colleagues. This has to be a low point for Canadian journalism, and MacDonald is bravely exposing it. 

He will be punished for this, to be sure. Israel is more afraid of the truth than of terrorists, so that makes MacDonald "Enemy Number one".

And Carol Off is a disgrace. She will prosper for her disgraceful behaviour in the halls of CBC.

CBC's "morality"

Today CBC quoted US Vice President in a headline saying US did the morally right thing in attacking Syria.

Does journalist ethics prevent CBC from providing a bit of context???

For example, the US has no right to be the world's policeman. This attack was a crime under international law. The US has done much worse than Assad over the last 70 years, literally killing millions of innocents in Vietnam and elsewhere and regularly using chemical weapons like Agent Orange.  

The Trump and his UN rep cried crocodile tears about the suffering Syrian children, but this was gross hypocrisy, because over the last few decades the US has killed tens of thousands of Arab children, poisoned them with depleted uranium in Iraq, and ruined their lives by destroying Iraq and Libya. Trump's hypocrisy is so blatant, that it deserves a comment by the media.

Apparently 40 were killed in Douma, but 30 have been killed by Israeli snipers in Gaza over the last two weeks., but no crocodile tears from Trump or Nikki Haley.

And certainly CBC would never, never, ever draw a link between these two events.

What are the "Rules of Engagement"?

CBC quoted Israeli authorities in a recent sub-heading saying Israel is OK because it follows the "rules of engagement". CBC never bothers to ask what these rules of engagement are? It just sounds good, that Israel is somehow being careful and "moral".

But today CBC reports that the Israeli Minister of Defence said that the sniper who shot across the border and killed an already wounded Palestinian man "deserves a decoration".

So doesn't this suggest what the rules of engagement are for Israel? If these rules are spelled out, they will not make Israel look good as CBC intends, but exactly the opposite -so that is why CBC never wishes to say what these rules are.

Of course the Israelis will never put the truth of their "rules" in writing - the term is only used for propaganda purposes, which CBC happily echoes.

CBC's Songsheet

Here is the song sheet employed by CBC in its reporting on Israel as described by Vijay Prasad:

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, the best thing to do is to treat the Palestinians as a threat.

Their bodies are weapons, their existence is dangerous. If a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli soldier, the most appropriate thing to do is to call it a "clash." Clashes take place when two armed forces confront each other.

Unarmed Palestinians are armed by the fact of their existence. If Israeli soldiers shoot to death 15 unarmed Palestinians, then the best way to tell that story is to say that "deadly clashes" took place in Gaza ("Deadly clashes in Gaza mark start of Palestinian campaign," March 31).

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, don't talk to any Palestinian officials. Talk only to the Israeli military and to the Israeli government. When the Israeli military says that the Palestinians began the "clash" with rocks and "burning tires," repeat that as the origin for the Israeli use of tear gas and live fire.

Don't bother to report what you have seen with your own eyes, or to watch videos on YouTube shot from both sides of the perimeter fence. No need to see that video of unarmed men kneeling down to prayer and then Israeli snipers picking them off one by one. Better to be a stenographer for the Israeli army than to be a journalist of the facts.

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, talk to a few Palestinians who say that they will never give up, that they "have nothing to lose." Offer no context for these statements, nothing to make these statements of futility make sense. Or to appear sympathetic.

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, don't ask the Palestinian political groups about the planned six weeks of unarmed protests at the perimeter fence. Don't bother to report that this is a peaceful protest, something that liberals have often demanded of the Palestinians. Don't bother to ask why the Palestinian leadership has urged people to be peaceful and why they have asked for this gathering at the fence.

Why mention that March 30 is the anniversary of the 1976 Land Day events in the Galilee, when Palestinians fought to defend their way of life in northern Israel?

Why mention that there is a politics at work here and not merely the instinct of an encaged people?

CBC Continues to Shame Canada

Here are some quotes from today:

"The man's death brings to 32 the number of people killed by Israeli fire since March 30. Out of that number, 26 were killed during the protests at the Gaza-Israel border. Among the others killed were Palestinian gunmen who had attempted to cross into Israel and two militants killed by Israeli forces."

      Nowhere does CBC say that the Israeli forces did not suffer even a single bruise or scratch, but casually reports that 26 Palestinians were killed. How can CBC ignore the manner of their killing? They were unarmed and shot intentionally.

""Israel says the protests are a smoke screen for attacks on its troops and attempts to breach the border fence. It says militants have attempted to carry out shootings, plant bombs or infiltrate the fence, and that its snipers have only fired at "instigators" trying to carry out attacks."

      Israel says this, but there is absolutely no reason to believe this. At least CBC should add that Israel refuses to have an independent enquiry of what happened, probably because it does not want the lies that CBC so willingly publishes to be shown as lies.

""In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry criticized what it described as Israel's "indiscriminate use of force against the civilian population."""

      Notice how CBC puts the Russian claim in scare quotes, as if it was not indiscriminate use of force against civilians. Of course it was, and is. Why the scare quotes? And note that CBC quotes only Russians, who are supposed to be our enemies, and have no credibility, but does not quote the leader of the Canadian Green Party, Elizabeth May, who said the same thing.

""The strike came a day after the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court raised concerns that Israel and Hamas may have committed war crimes during the current spasm of violence.""

     Yes claim that both Israel and the Palestinians have committed potential war crimes, but there is not a bruise or a scratch on any Israelis, so is this really a balanced situation, CBC?

CBC - Not only disloyal to Canada, disloyal to Journalism

There is evidence that CBC reporters are fighting other Canadian journalists in order to suppress criticism about Israel's killing of journalists in Gaza this week.

This is hardly surprising, but it is sickening. We know that CBC is disloyal to Canadians because it regularly deceives them on behalf of a foreign state, but CBC is even disloyal to its own profession. It sees fellow journalists being butchered by Israeli snipers, but wants no overt criticism about these crimes against their colleagues.

CBC's slogan should be "Eretz Zion uber allies"

Eretz Zion is Hebrew for "the Land of Israel", and the Nazi words are fittingly attached.

For CBC, loyalty to Israel trumps everything.

CBC Sings from Israeli Song Sheet

Today CBC reported that Israeli snipers killed a Palestinian journalist, wearing a vest marked "Press".

The article ended with this gratuitous sentence straight out of the Israeli song sheet:

Israel has stationed sharpshooters to stop attempts by Palestinians to breach the border or sabotage the security fence. 

Really, was the journalist trying to breach the border and attack Israel? 

Note CBC does not even say that Israel claims this, but states this bullshit as a fact. The reality is that the sharp shooters are there to terrorize the protestors, not to prevent a breach of the border, and when CBC claims otherwise, CBC is lying for Israel.

Shame on CBC. Shame on Canada

Here are some passages from today's article:

Many of those killed were militants, said Israel, which stationed sharpshooters on the frontier to stop Palestinians attempting "any breach of the security infrastructure and fence, which protects Israeli civilians."

David Keyes, an Israeli government spokesperson, accused Hamas of having instigated violent protests along the border. "This is a travesty for the Palestinian people that the Hamas government is encouraging its people to attack Israel, it is encouraging its people to commit acts of violence," he said.

Israel is killing children intentionally to scare the legitimate protestors. Why continually quote ;lies and nonsense from Israeli sources? Is this balanced journalism? The article said two boys ages 16 and 17 were killed today. When Israel justifies this killing, calling them "militants", does CBC need to quote and echo this grotesque claim without comment?

And the quote from David Keyes, lamenting the violence of the protestors and trying to blame Hamas for Israel's murders - does this warrant publishing? It is nonsense. It is blaming the victim. Why cannot CBC say somewhere that 27 Palestinians were killed, many of them children, and no Israeli even suffered a bruise. Why does CBC not emphasize that not one foot crossed into Israeli territory, but Israel fired thousands of rounds of weapons across the border into Gaza?

Have the journalists at CBC no shame?

And here is how they end this article:

Israel said it is doing what it must to defend its border and that its troops have been responding with riot dispersal means and fire "in accordance with the rules of engagement."

Israel has been the target of thousands of rocket strikes from Gaza over the past few years. Palestinian militant groups have also dug tunnels under the border barrier to smuggle weapons, and to launch attacks.


What is the relevance of the last paragraph? They have no room in the article to question the excessive violence of Israel, but they throw in this gratuitous paragraph that seeks to justify Israel's crimes.

And another absurd quote from Israel without any analysis. Was the border really threatened by the protestors? What are these "rules of engagement"? Put them in writing. Does include lines like "Shoot to kill children if they throw stones"? Tell the world that these are Israel's so-called "rules of engagement" and let the readers decide if Israel does not deserve the maximum censure. But no - CBC works for Israel - just echoes Israel's bullshit and never offers any substantial criticism.

I am sick as a Canadian of Jewish descent to see this kind of reporting coming out of our national broadcaster.

CBC reporting so bad - enough to make you cry

The article today on the travesty on the Gaza border was so slanted and misleading, it was enough to make you cry.

Look at the headline and sub-headline:

Israeli troops kill 7 Palestinians on day of ramped up border protest: Gaza medics

Israel says its troops have been responding 'in accordance with the rules of engagement'

Why quote Israel in the sub-heading? What "rules of engagement" justify snipers killing children that pose ZERO threat to them, and are across a border? How can CBC quote Israel without explaining this ridiculous claim? This is pure propaganda, Just say something that sounds meaningful and supports a cause (Zionism), but in fact has no meaning. Why does CBC echo this murderous propaganda?

April 7 - Israel still killing, CBC still ignoring

Shameful silence from CBC as Israel continues to commit war crimes.

What will get CBC to report honestly on the Middle East? Does the fact that CBC is paid for by all Canadians, not Israelis, mean nothing?

Palestinian March of Return

CBC did not mention the context of all those Palestinians gathering at the Gaza border. It is a campaign that is meant to last 6 weeks. On the first day Israel committed a massacre and open war crimes against the protestors in an attempt to "terrorize" them and make them stop.

They have not stopped. Their goals, persistence and their courage should be hailed by decent people everywhere, including the decent people of Canada. But CBC will not give them the whole story, so thanks to CBC and its foreign handlers, the decent people of Canada cannot behave decently.

How long can we continue to let CBC shame us?

CBC - Who is the Terrorist?

Israeli snipers are intentionally killing innocent civilians in order to terrorize the protestors and make them stop protesting.

The definition of terrorism:
- killing civilians 
- to obtain a political outcome

Israelis accuse the Palestinian protestors of being terrorists, and CBC publishes these inane quotes in its articles,

But the Israelis are the terrorists, and CBC should say so. If they can publish the word "terrorism" but not apply it to Israel's behaviour, then CBC is being totally dishonest.

Wouldn't it be news worthy if CBC could publish an article explaining why they are so biassed in favour of Zionist positions? I'm sure their readers would love to read this. That would be real news!

CBC bias

If Arab snipers had shot and killed 17 Israelis, and they were still at large and threatening more killings, would CBC drop this story from the news headlines within one day?

Not likely. We would get constant news of this disaster, with pictures of the grieving parents of the dead, and angry photos of Israeli leaders threatening their response. 

But when Israeli butchers young Palestinians that is hardly news worthy in the eyes of CBC,

By ignoring the protests of the people of Gaza, in spite of criminal violence against them, CBC is enabling the Israeli killers. CBC has blood on its hands. Its words are weaponized as is CBC's silence.

CBC - Where is the Outrage?

The war crimes of Israel in Gaza have dropped out of the headline news at CBC even they are on-going. It is replaced with news of Bill Crosby's sex problems.

Why is there no outrage at snipers executing young Palestinian stone-throwers across the border? This is ugly. This is criminal. This is murder. But CBC easily drops it from the news cycle because that is what Israel would want. Is that what serves Canadians? I don't think so.
