Lawson, reviews BBC Panorama’s Documentary video ‘Death on the Med’, and critiques THE BBC for its blatantly “biased and often untruthful treatment of Israel’s worst atrocity since Operation Cast Lead.” He opines, this should trigger a public enquiry about who is really in charge of one of the most influential broadcaster’s on the planet”.

Whatever happened on the Mavi Marmara on the morning of May 31st, 2010, the BBC’s Panorama team failed to give a balanced view of it in its so-called documentary, Death in the Med.  Even the title sounds more like that of a paperback mystery, rather than a serious analysis of Israel’s worst atrocity since Operation Cast Lead.

Documentaries should be truthful and informative and expand our understanding of situations and events; their content should be rigorously checked for errors in statements which are presented as facts and conjecture, and the personal opinions of their writers and presenters should be explicitly identified as such.  But  Death in the Med failed any test based on those parameters.

The BBC’s television and radio services reach an audience measured in hundreds of millions, world-wide, but are primarily funded by taxes and license fees paid by the British public; not by Israel or its influential friends.  Panorama’s biased and often untruthful Treatment of Israel’s worst atrocity since Operation Cast Lead should trigger a public enquiry about who is really in charge of one of the most influential broadcaster’s on the planet.

He used to be known for shooting humorous commercials, but doesn’t find much to laugh about, with the way the world is going, these days.

    The British Broadcasting Company symbolizes the country’s submission to thw World Zionist movement. It was British Jew Foreign Secretary (later Prime Minister), Lord Balfour, the author of the notorious Balfour Declaration (1917) and the successive Zionist Controlled Governments in London which gave birth to the Zionist entity in 1948. The tradition still continues. Tony Blair, David Brown and the current British Prime Minister, David Cameron (a Crypto-Jew), all headed openly pro-Israel governments.

    During the Danish cartoon episode – BBC, ITV and Channel 4, all showed some of the cartoons on television broadcasts. However, when Iran hosted a Holocaust Cartoon Contest – BBC was among the various western medis outlets which condemned the conference, being ‘anti-Semitic’ and misusing the ‘freedom of speech’.

    In January 2010 – BBC tried to convince its audience that the European terrorists are not occupying Jerusalem – it’s in fact a disputed city. Watch out in the future if some gangsters enter your home and evict you – they, too, could claim that the house you owned – is in fact a disputed property!

    What can you expect from an organisation headed by a Zionist?

    The rats are deserting the sinking ship:
    Subsequent to the decline of “Great Britain”, the Zionists moved to the US. Now, the US empire is on the decline. Zionist rats abandoned ship and are now swimming in the direction of China, the emerging new world power.
