Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"A Sensitive Topic For Many Muslims": The BBC Hits A New Low

Is there no limit to the depths to which the BBC will sink in its biased reportage concerning Israel?

On its news site currently is a story, that sounds more of a propagandistic beat-up, about Muslim schoolgirls from a Berlin school being "racially abused" on a visit to Holocaust memorials in Poland.

For the BBC, as for much of the Left, the "victimisation" of Muslims, real or imagined, is a topic worthy of the maximum exposure, for Muslims, it seems, are "the new Jews".

Thus the BBC's salivating over the theme that "German Muslim schoolgirls who went on a visit to Holocaust memorials in eastern Poland say they were racially abused by locals during their trip" is almost palpable.

Gratuitous attacks on anyone, irrespective of race or creed, are unconscionable and despicable.

But what the blazes does the following statement have to do with the report in question?

"The Holocaust is a sensitive topic for many Muslims because Jewish survivors settled in British mandate Palestine, on land which later became part of the state of Israel"
Not for the BBC, so far as I'm aware, frank reportage about Muslim antisemitism as seen in the many Al Quds Day hate-fests in European cities, including London (as I have mentioned in several recent posts) and Berlin (see below the new demographics where once the jackboot strutted):

Yep.  There they teach hatred of Israel young:

Just as they do in Dublin:

    The BBC bastards have been shamed Daph!
    In its original report, the BBC had a line that stated: “The Holocaust is a sensitive topic for many Muslims because Jewish survivors settled in British-mandate Palestine, on land which later became the state of Israel.”
    The UK's Board of Jewish Deputies swiftly issued a joint statement together with Fiyaz Mughal, founder of Tell MAMA (Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks), urging the BBC to amend the article.
    Shortly after the two organizations filed the complaint, the BBC removed the line from the story.
    “In a story about Muslim schoolgirls suffering racism as they learn about the Holocaust, why have the BBC included the gratuitous line – offensive to both Muslims and Jews – that ‘the Holocaust is a sensitive topic for many Muslims’? Together, we call on the BBC to delete the offending passage and apologize,” Vice President of the Board of Jewish Deputies Marie van der Zyl told The Jewish Chronicle.
    The BBC did not respond to The Jewish Chronicle's request for a comment.

  3. In a way, I wish the two groups had protested independently of one another.

    Forget the BoD, the best comment came from Campaign Against Antisemitism --
