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.

W@1: Corbyn’s history

this afternoon (sunday 24th), 1.36-1.43pm, on bbc radio 4 

world at one (presented by mark mardell) includes …

Corbyn is perhaps driven by his anti-colonialism, whether the colonial powers are in South America, Vietnam, the Middle East, or Ireland. He’s never changed, but he’s now haunted by that history. Many Labour campaigners who knock on doors will tell you time and time again white working-class men in particular will raise his support for Hamas, and with great disgust the IRA. The former Labour MP Ian Austin agreed [sic] with him in the Commons: ‘The Leader of the Opposition the Shadow Chancellor, these are people who spent their entire time in politics working with, defending, all sorts of extremists and in some cases terrorists and anti-semites’.”
