I tried and tried to embed this video on this blog but it wasn’t having it. No matter what I did it wouldn’t show up on the page. (!**@!)
Instead, please do me the honour of clicking on this link to see a video, carefully put together by the BBC’s Middle East editor. It concerns the infamous ‘slap’. It will only take a minute.
It stars Bassem Tamimi, head of the professional, family-run, Palestinian, anti-Israel clan; you might never guess that despite Bassem Tamimi’s butter-wouldn’t-melt, honed-for-the-media performance, close family members are convicted murderers.
Also featured, for the appearance of that special sort of balance that ends up being the exact opposite of balance, is Oren Hazan ‘the youngest member of the Israeli Knesset” and evidently a hard-liner who pulls no punches when it comes to explaining what he would do to poor defenceless little Ahed, given half a chance.
This, alongside a cluster of anti-Israel, Trump-centered reporting by Yolande Knell and Lyse Doucet represents an alarming spike in anti-Israel bias, unsurpassed by the BBC even by its own own standards.
