BBC bias against Israel: a petition to the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP
His Grace is of the opinion that the BBC ought to honour its own Charter and broadcasting guidelines. Yet it is seen time and again that whenever the Arab-Israeli conflict is concerned, the Corporation's impartiality and accuracy fly out of the window straight to the nearest holy mosque or to the bed of an aggrieved Palestinian: the holiest Temple Mount and the slaughtered Jews don't get much of a look-in.
A petition has been brought to His Grace's attention which he commends to his readers and communicants for their consideration. It demands that the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport launch an independent investigation into BBC coverage of the Middle East conflict in view of persuasive evidence that it is biased against the State of Israel.
In particular, it requests an immediate instruction to the BBC to release the 'Balen Report' into its coverage of the Middle East conflict, which appears to be subject to a 100-year non-disclosure order. It was commissioned by the BBC with taxpayers' money (rather a lot of it) to investigate whether or not its Middle East coverage was biased. They obviously didn't like its findings, because they have since spent an awful lot more of taxpayers' money suppressing it through the courts. Please consider signing this petition, and commending to others to do so.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it (Zech 12:3).
