An ally of Jeremy Corbyn has suggested that Israel manufactured the anti-semitism row in the Labour Party in order to distract from its own actions. In a recording published by the Independent online newspaper, Mark Sowotka the general secretary of the PCS Union is heard saying there’s no place for anti-semitism in the Labour movement, but he goes on to hint that the Israeli state created the story to hide what he called ’its own atrocities’.”

Newshour: Gaza mental health

BBC bias:
(1) The BBC implies Israel to blame for suicide and wife-beating in Gaza, with no mention that mental health services are among those affected by the deliberate under-funding of Gaza health services by the Palestinian Authority
.

(2) The BBC resurrects an at least 11-day-old report about mental health with a very long introduction entirely about violence on the Gaza border .
(3) The BBC singles out and names one dead “demonstrator” with no attempt to find out or describe how he died or what he was doing,

this evening (sunday 5th), 9.51-9.56am, on bbc world service radio (repeated from eleven days ago, wednesday 25th july, on today on bbc radio 4)
newshour (presented by jon donnison) includes …

“The tension on Gaza’s boundary with Israel continues to simmer, as it has done now for months. Doctors in the Palestinian territory say a 15 year old boy shot by Israeli soldiers is the latest to die. Muadh al-Suri was among thousands of Palestinian demonstrators who gathered at the border on Friday to protest Israel’s occupation. The Israeli military says Hamas miltants seeking to launch attacks across the border use the regular mass demonstrations there as cover. This year the United Nations says more than 160 Palestinians have been killed in the clashes, with thousands more injured, putting enormous strain on Gaza’s hospitals. But as Paul Adams discovered on a recent visit to Gaza, health workers are worried about something much more long-term, the deteriorating mental health of the area’s nearly two million people.”

W@1: Gaza children

BBC bias: The BBC gives an impliedly fair summary of the Gaza border violence, comparing the ’David and Goliath’ rocks tyres and balloons from Gaza with Israeli firepower, but deliberately omitting the grenades explosives and firebombs being thrown, or of concealed grenades etc, and knives and other weapons.

this afternoon (friday 27th), 1.23-1.30pm, on bbc radio 4 (repeated 1.36pm and 9.36pm saturday on newshour on bbc world service radio)
world at one (presented by jonny dymond) includes …

For 18 consecutive weekends now, Palestinians, many of them children, have gathered to protest at the fence that separates Gaza from Israel, protests with rocks and burning tyres, and balloons carrying flaming strips of cloth designed to set fire to nearby Israeli farmland, They have been confronted with live fire from the most sophisticated military in the region, at least 150 Palestinians have been killed in the protests since March, and one Israeli soldier has been shot dead by Gaza-based militants. Amongst the Palestinians, 19 children have been killed, and hundreds more injured.”

“The deteriorating mental condition of nearly two million GazansSuicide is a terrible sin in Islam, and yet Fathi Harb chose to do it , out in the street, in front of dozens of people. He was clearly desperate. And so it seems are more and more people here.”
