The Wall

BBC bias: Despite less than 20 miles (6%) of the security barrier being concrete*, S4C follows standard BBC policy of never showing the other 94%, deliberately giving the impression that the barrier is entirely or mostly a concrete wall.

BBC bias: At 0:33:57. series presenter Ffion Dafis silently hugs an unnamed female ‘fixer’ who (0:32:55 to 0:34:00) has just said …
“Many people start to think, okay only God protects me, and many others say, what if I die now, nothing will happen, so that’s why we lose the sense of life, no-one cares, and then we face fear, we face, we see our rights being smashed on the floor, and that we are treated as if we weren’t even human beings, with soul and feelings and emotions, it’s like just creatures, you know, or insects, anyone can step on them and just walk. So when you feel that, you stop caring.

Death at the Junction

yesterday evening (saturday 23rd), 9.30-10.00pm, on bbc news tv
death at the junction (presented by yolande knell) (in the our world series)

“Over the past year, a new wave of violence has brought terror to the streets of Israel and the West Bank. Palestinians have attacked Israelis in apparently random acts. In some cases the attackers have been young teenagers, armed with kitchen knives.
The Gush Etzion junction is one site of many attacks. It’s on the main road between Jerusalem and Hebron and is used by thousands of Jewish settlers. The junction used to be a place where Palestinians would also shop and work. Now people are scared that being there could cost them their lives.
The film contains disturbing images from the start.”
