No Aid Appeal broadcast for Gaza

The suffering in Gaza is the direct result of Israeli military action. To have people see that suffering, identify with it and want to ameliorate it, also focuses attention on its perpetrators. In other words, Israel’s war crimes are unmasked.

To defend Israel in world opinion it is therefore necessary to conceal the effects of Israel’s actions. Hence the BBC, at the behest of pro-Israeli pressure, seeks to deny human suffering; the BBC is in effect saying that helping injured Palestinian children is anti-Israeli and therefore illegitimate.
