Newshour: BBC promotes UNRWA-USA

BBC bias: The BBC presents a completely one-sided report on political organisation UNRWA-USA:
i] the report presents a small response to a political organisation as a USA-wide grass-roots funding and opposition to USA policy
ii] the report supports the view that humanitarian aid to refugees should not depend on politics, even though most of UNRWA’s aid to Palestinians is solely dependent on politics, since in no other situation is UN aid given to children or grandchidren of refugees
iii] the whole report is presented as relevant solely on the hook of a UN Security Council debate on Gaza that has nothing to do with UNRWA or refugees

this afternoon (wednesday 13th), 2.44-2.49pm (repeated 9.49pm), on bbc world service radio

”Years of conflict have left Gaza in ruins. Infrastructure’s crumbling, the economy’s paralysed, and basic supplies such as electricity are in crisis. Despite this, the United States has cut off vital funding to the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA. But, as Nada Tawfik reports, across the US, American citizens are now filling the void.”
