New publication highlights an issue the BBC urgently needs to address

Professor Alan Johnson of BICOM has produced a new publication titled “The Apartheid Smear” which can be downloaded here or viewed hereSONY DSC

“The idea that Israel is an ‘apartheid state’ is the intellectual foundation of the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel (BDS). This pamphlet shows it is a smear: a malicious lie that does huge damage to the peace process.”

Shockingly, it is not rare for the BBC to permit promotion and amplification of the ‘apartheid’ calumny on its various comments boards and even in the articlesreports and interviews which it produces and broadcasts.   

The corporation’s systematic failure to tackle the subject of its enabling and amplifying of a politically motivated smear designed, as Professor Johnson notes, to advance “the demonisation of Israel as a pariah state in order to prepare the ground for its eventual destruction” is a very serious issue which obviously needs to be urgently addressed by BBC management.
