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.

* (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_West_Bank_barrier#Structure)

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.

last sunday evening (25th november), 8.00-8.50pm, on s4c tv, in welsh
israel – palesteina (in the al wal (the wall) series. presented by ffion dafis) (possibly fydd rhiannon roberts)

Newshour/Twt/WU: Khan al-Ahmar

BBC bias: the BBC Middle East Editor fails to report that the $25 million cut in US aid to East Jerusalem hospitals has already been fully replaced by the Palestinian Authority (announced a week ago, see https://mondoweiss.net/2018/09/political-jerusalem-hospitals/).
The BBC also inserts its announcement of this American cut into a report on a totally different subject, the proposed Israeli demolition of Khan al-Ahmar.

this evening (monday 17th), 9.51-9.59pm, on bbc world service radio (repeated 10.18-10.25pm, on the world tonight on bbc radio 4) (repeated tuesday 18th, at 10.11am on world update and at 2.36pm on newshour)
newshour (presented by tim franks) includes …

“The consequent fear is that the destruction of Khan al-Ahmar will open the way to more building for Israeli settlers, which will in turn split the West Bank and make the two-state solution, an independent Palestine alongside Israel, impossible.”
