Protest continues to mount on the BBC in the U.K. for the networks refusal to air an aid appeal from humanitarian organizations working in Gaza. Multiple politicians have publicly urged the BBC to air the aid appeal, while numerous street protests have also targeted the BBC offices and representatives. BBC officials have claimed that airing the air appeal for Gaza would give the impression the media institution was “backing one side” over the other.

In response the BBC has come under serious political pressure fire from archbishops, government ministers and activities appealing for the network to air the ad produced by the Disasters Emergency Committee, representing more than a dozen aid agencies, which appeals for money to buy food, medicine and blankets following the Israeli attack on Gaza.

Here in Canada the debate (silence) hasn’t made it into mainstream media which is controlled by Zionists. Nazi-like murdering of a people, loading them into refugee (concentration?) camps and them using white phosphorous, 155 mm shells, etc…these are atrocities!! Where is the justice?
