BBC Fabricates Story Of Home Demolition Report
I had seen reports earlier that Israel had bulldozed the family home of Ala Abu Dheim, who murdered 8 students at the Rabbinical Seminary. I didn't bother to read the reports as I felt it was propaganda from Hamas.
I really was surprised to find out the BBC fabricated the story!
CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America)
On Friday, March 7, 2008, the BBC’s World News with Jonathan Charles (seen in the U.S. on PBS stations as part of BBC America) aired footage purporting to show the demolition and burning of a house that belongs to the family of Ala Abu Dheim, the terrorist who murdered eight students and wounded nine others in the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva (Rabbinical Seminary) .
Against footage of a bulldozer destroying a burning home, BBC reporter Nick Miles was heard in voiceover proclaiming:
In the hours after the attack, Israeli bulldozers destroyed his [the terrorist’s] family home. Later, his mourners set up Hamas and Islamic Jihad banners nearby.
But, in fact, it never happened! The film clip could not possibly have been of the terrorist’s family home, as it is still standing and, together with the nearby public mourning tent erected by the family, serves as a shrine dedicated to the "martyred" terrorist.[...]
Contrary to the BBC’s report, however, the only action taken by Israeli police against the Abu Dheim home was ordering the removal of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah flags from the front of the house!
The blantant lie by BBC is outrageous! Be sure to view the video at CAMERA and read the rest.
Thanks to CAMERA for alerting Rusty about this. The BBC need to be exposed for being a possible? mouthpiece for the terrorists. What other reason is there for fabricating this.
BTW Rusty has gone fishing.....teh
I forgot to mention this story aired on PBS. Our tax dollars help to fund PBS. In essence we are paying for terrorist propaganda. That sucks big time!
