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.

“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.”

“It is good that the Labour Party has accepted the full international definition of anti-semitism, but very disturbing that there is a statement added to it, and that statement does open the way to make it possible to call Israelis Nazis when that is expressly forbidden by the definition itself.”

In a scathing resignation letter, Mr Field, a former minister in Tony Blair’s government, accused Jeremy Corbyn of overseeing an erosion of the party’s key values.
