BBC fails to mention anti-Semitism interviewee is Friend of Israel

UN Human Rights Tweet re Israel's human rights violations.

The BBC chooses to interview a Labour Friend of Israel, without identifying her as such, re the supposed crisis of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, rather than cover news such as this.

This morning BBC Radio 4 featured a long interview with Catherine McKinnell MP about the Labour Party’s supposed mishandling of the supposed crisis of anti-Semitism within it. (The real crisis, of course, is one of infiltration by hard-line Zionism.)

As far as I know, not once did they mention that a UN probe has just found ‘reasonable grounds to believe’ Israeli snipers intentionally shot at children and civilians during 2018 Gaza rallies, nor that Netanyahu is about to be indicted for bribery and fraud. Naturally, they also failed to discuss Israel’s role in the India-Pakistan conflict. (Which of these do you regard as the most serious and worthy of coverage – the supposed anti-Semitism crisis in the Labour Party or one of the others?)

Most significantly, the BBC did not mention that Catherine McKinnell MP is a member of Labour Friends of Israel. Could it be that the BBC unashamedly supports the actions of the apartheid, settler-colonial state of Israel, and also wants to destroy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party, or am I a mad conspiracy theorist?

If you believe that as a minimum the BBC should let us know whether its interviewees on the issue of anti-Semitism are Friends of Israel, please share this article.
