BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – SEPTEMBER 2020

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during September 2020 shows that throughout the month a total of 100 incidents took place: 65 in Judea & Samaria, 21 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and 14 in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 70 attacks with petrol bombs, six attacks using pipe bombs, eight arson attacks, one stabbing and one vehicular attack. In the Gaza Strip sector seven attacks with petrol bombs, one IED attack and six separate incidents of rocket attacks (during which 15 missiles were launched) were recorded.

Five people were wounded during August: two members of the security forces in a vehicular attack at Tapuach Junction on September 2nd and three civilians – one seriously – in a rocket attack on Ashdod on September 15th.

The BBC News website reported (in just 30 words) the rocket fire from the Gaza Strip on September 15th and 16th. No BBC journalist made the one-hour journey from Jerusalem to Ashdod to cover the story from the scene of the attack and the point of view of the civilians targeted. None of the additional incidents – including the vehicular attack – received any coverage.

Since the beginning of the year visitors to the BBC News website have seen coverage of 5.3% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and reporting of 50% of the resulting fatalities. Six of the first nine months of 2020 saw no BBC reporting on Palestinian terrorism at all.

  • BBC staffers in Israel appear to have their own agenda of not reporting the truth but to deliberately distort the truth to a bias against Israel. This despite the famous Balen 2040, 20,000 word report that it has kept under lock and key far away from the prying eyes of the public and has defended in the courts to the tune of 250,000 GBP of – yes you guessed it – public money paid to it from the BBC licence fees.
    One learnt early on that whilst supporting BLM and similar groups the BBC has constantly ignored the plight of the Jews in the last 2000 years who were murdered at the behest of religion throughout the world, expelled from the UK and all their assets seized, besides the special taxes paid to the UK exchequer (See publications Jewish Historical Soc -England- Mocatta Library – University College London), yet one hears not a word about them compensating us compared with those who claimed their ancestors were made slaves etc. It is time we demanded the record was set straight and we know where the evidence lies.
