Lea Tsemel

BBC bias: The BBC presents a completely one-sided view of an Israeli terrorism trial. This may have been acceptable on an Israeli channel, where viewers could be expected to be already familiar with ‘the other side’ of this specific case (and of terrorism trials generally). But not in the UK, where most viewers would have no knowledge other than presented in this programme.

monday 10th february, 10.00-11.30pm, on bbc 4 tv  

advocate: a lawyer without borders (in the storyville series) (with english subtitles)

“Jewish lawyer Lea Tsemel is a controversial figure in Israel. For the last 50 years, she has fearlessly defended Palestinians prosecuted in Israeli courts for resisting the occupation both violently and non-violently. Taking on tough cases, including charges of terrorism, the odds are stacked sharply against her. To many Israelis, Lea defends the indefensible, but for Palestinians she is more than a lawyer, she is an advocate.
