|The following URL on the BBC website titled “Israel’s History of Bomb Blasts” gives a detailed account of “some of the most deadly” Palestinian bomb attacks against Israelis since September:
The BBC in compiling this list has failed to mention the death of even one of the 1,694 Palestinians, approximately one fifth of them children, who have so far died since September 2000. Whilst the BBC has taken care to record the injuries sustained by Israelis, again not one of the 20,000 Palestinians injured since the beginning of the second Intifada by bullet fire, tear gas, live ammunition, shrapnel from rockets and tank shells have been mentioned.
The compilation of this report if attempting to portray an unbiased account should have mentioned the Palestinian casualties. This failure to do so can only lead to the conclusion that a deliberate attempt has been made by the BBC to portray the Palestinians as the cause of the current Middle East.
Previous BBC reports have equated the struggle made by the Palestinians against continued illegal occupation consisting of daily indiscriminate gunfire, arbitrary detention of civilians, demolition of homes and the denial of access to medical personnel. This BBC report has gone one step further in ignoring altogether the much greater violence perpetrated by Israel during the last 50 years against both the Palestinian and Lebanese civilian populations.
