Huge row emerging in the UK over the BBC’s refusal to broadcast a charity appeal for donations to help rebuild Gaza after the Israeli strikes. There was no way they could possibly have managed that issue. Broadcast and be damned; don’t and be even more damned. I know that I’d prefer the appeal to be broadcast, but the moral outrage by UK politicians who are the very same politicians who agree to supply ( = sell for profit) Israel with weapons is the utmost in hypocrisy.
Only two weeks ago, Amnesty International urged the UK to suspend arms sales to Israel until “there is no longer a substantial risk that such equipment will be used for serious violations of human rights”.
