Anti-Semitic incidents 'at record level in UK' per BBC News

The BBC report on the rise in the number of Anti-Semitic incidents in the UK:

'Reports of anti-Semitic incidents have hit record levels in the first six months of 2017, according to a Jewish charity.

The Community Security Trust (CST) said 767 reports were made to them between January and June - a rise of 30% on the same period last year.'

Of course the BBC show no interest in discussing who might be responsible for the majority of these attacks. Is there a religion, the number of adherents of which is growing in the UK, which teaches anti Jew sentiment?

'It pains me to have to admit this but anti-Semitism isn't just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it's routine and commonplace. Any Muslims reading this article – if they are honest with themselves – will know instantly what I am referring to. It's our dirty little secret. You could call it the banality of Muslim anti-Semitism.


The truth is that the virus of anti-Semitism has infected members of the British Muslim community, both young and old. No, the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict hasn't helped matters. But this goes beyond the Middle East. How else to explain why British Pakistanis are so often the most ardent advocates of anti-Semitic conspiracies, even though there are so few Jews living in Pakistan?

It is sheer hypocrisy for Muslims to complain of Islamophobia in every nook and cranny of British public life, to denounce the newspapers for running Muslim-baiting headlines, and yet ignore the rampant anti-Semitism in our own backyard. We cannot credibly fight Islamophobia while making excuses for Judaeophobia.


I only hope and pray that Lord Ahmed's comments will act as a wake-up call to Britain's moderate Muslim majority. The time has come for us to own up to a rather shameful fact: Muslims are not only the victims of racial and religious prejudice but purveyors of it, too.

In 2011 Baroness Warsi, the then Conservative Party chairman, said that Islamophobia has "passed the dinner-table test" in polite British society. I agree with her, but what she omitted to mention, and what we Muslims must now admit, is that anti-Semitism passed the dinner-table test in polite British Muslim society long ago.'

The above is from an honest article written by Mehdi Hasan in the New Statesman in 2013, you can read it in full here -

Where you won't read or hear such truth is on the institutionally pro Islam BBC.

HA Goodman is still pushing the Hillary Clinton email story

HA Goodman is still pushing the Hillary Clinton email story and he's worth listening to.

The BBC actually lay blame for something at the door of the last Labour government! New diesel and petrol vehicles to be banned from 2040 in UK per BBC News

In this BBC report the BBC actually lay some blame at the door of the last Labour government and don't hide that too far down the report either!

How on earth did this slip through?

'Ministers have been wary of being seen to "punish" drivers of diesel cars, who, they argue, bought the vehicles after being encouraged to by the last Labour government because they produced lower carbon emissions.'

'they argue' would be the BBC's get out but still they reported that claim without any Labour Party denial.

Labour's Student Debt defence is not very convincing

The Standard reports that:

'However, Mr Corbyn’s aides stressed that he had never promised to scrap the student tuition fee debt mountain.

A source close to the Labour leader stressed: “Imran was mistaken. That was not our policy.”'
I presume that these Labour Party aides can point to their correcting Imran Hussain before the elction. No? Thought not!

BBC running with this story? No, how surprising!

Lord Kinnock is asking for some information...

Written Answers - Department for Exiting the European Union: (24 Jul 2017)

'Lord Kinnock: Her Majesty's Government whether House of Lords ministers
in the Department for Exiting the European Union will be provided with
all cabinet papers that are relevant to their role and necessary for the
proper discharge of their duties.'
A fair question?

Here's a couple of fair questions for Lord Kinnock:
  1. How much money have you earned from the EU in each of the past 22 years? 
  2. How much pension per year will you be entitled to in the future and from when will that pension be paid?

Did the labour Party promise to wipe out student debt

The BBC seem happy at the moment to let Labour Party spokespersons state that the Labour party did not promise to end student debt.

Well here is the Labour Party Shadow Justice Minister Imran Hussain speaking in a campaign video during the election:
“Just this morning Jeremy Corbyn has announced that the tuition fees will be abolished straight away from September if there’s a Labour government, and that we will bring back immediately EMA and also that every existing student will have all their debt wiped off. That’s fantastic news, isn’t it guys?”

Was Imran Hussein lying then? If so, will the Labour party be disciplining him for misleading the electorate? Or was he telling the truth by stating the Labour Party position at the time, a position designed to garner as many student votes as possible? I don't see what other option there might be.

Thanks to Guido Fawkes for the spot, he's got more examples of such

Labour, student debt and the BBC

The BBC are reporting with a straight face that:
'Jeremy Corbyn has insisted he did not promise to write off all student debt while appealing to young voters during the general election.

During the campaign, the Labour leader said he would "deal with" the issue of graduates burdened with debt since tuition fees rose to £9,000.

He told the BBC he had never promised to abolish all debt as Labour "were unaware of the size of it at the time".'
Let's turn back the clock to 16 May 2017, there was a piece  by, the BBC's All or nothing for Labour on tuition fees'. Here's how it started:

'Scrapping tuition fees in England is the biggest and most expensive proposal in Labour's £25bn worth of pledges for education.

Instead of fees rising to £9,250 per year in the autumn, Jeremy Corbyn is proposing a complete handbrake turn in saying that university tuition should not cost students anything.

It's a bolder step than Labour's previous leader, who two years ago opted for a halfway house of cutting fees to £6,000 - and then was accused of pleasing no-one.

This is Labour going for an all-or-nothing approach - asserting free education as a fundamental principle - and creating the starkest choice in university policy for two decades.

It's a direct appeal to younger voters - with surveys suggesting that students are more likely to vote Labour.

It makes the pitch that no-one should be deterred from university because of the cost or fear of debt.

Labour's big move on fees represents a complete of direction. Previously in government, Labour raised fees and in opposition proposed a modest reduction.

But they are now proposing to bulldoze the apparatus of fees, loans and repayments.'
 If this was not what Jeremy Corbyn was proposing then presumably the Labour Party protested vigorously to the BBC at the time about the BBC's misrepresentation of Labour Party policy. Can anybody provide evidence of such protests?

If there were no such protests was that because the Labour Party were happy to have their policy so misrepresented or because that was their policy?

Either way, the policy had its desired effect as an unexpectedly large turnout among students helped the Labour Party win seats such as Canterbury, which it took for the first time in 100 years, and increase its majority in cities such as Cambridge, Bristol and Leeds. Job done BBC and the Labour Party?

I wonder if the idiots who claimed that Jeremy Corbyn was a breath of fresh air with his honest attitude to politics still think that is the case?

Is it just me, or is there a slight problem with this announcement?

The BBC report that:

'Blood donation rules for sex workers and gay men are being relaxed in England and Scotland after improvements in the accuracy of testing procedures.

Men who have sex with men can now give blood three months after their last sexual activity instead of 12.

And sex workers, who were previously barred from donating, now can, subject to the same three-month rule.'
Is a sex-worker who hasn't had sex for three months still a sex-worker? Just a question.

'Experts said the move would give more people the opportunity to donate blood without affecting blood supply safety.'
Well that's nice for them.

'The Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs - which advises UK health departments - recommended the changes after concluding that new testing systems were accurate and donors were good at complying with the rules.
All blood that is donated in the UK undergoes a mandatory test for Hepatitis B and C, and HIV, plus a couple of other viruses.

Scientists agree that three months is a comfortably long window for a virus or infection to appear and be picked up in the blood.'
When do you expect the first cases of people who've had virus infected blood transfusions suing the government?

But so long as gay men and sex-workers are happy and the experts say it's safe that's fine.

IMF downgrades US and UK growth per BBC News

This BBC report starts thus:

'The UK and US economies will expand more slowly in 2017 than previously predicted, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

It said "weaker-than-expected activity" in the first three months of the year meant the UK would grow by 1.7%, compared with an earlier 2% forecast.

And the IMF revised down its US outlook from 2.3% to 2.1%.

However, its overall global economic predictions - of 3.5% growth in 2017 and 3.6% in 2018 - remain unchanged.

Meanwhile the outlook for several eurozone economies is brighter than initially thought, with countries including France, Germany, Italy and Spain seeing growth forecasts revised up.'

That's the BBC narrative: post Brexit UK economy down, post Trump US economy down and EU doing better so the UK should reverse its decision to Brexit. Did you spot that the EU section has no comparative figures? Well if you read on much further down the article then you'll find this sentence hidden away from the casual reader.

'The euro area as a whole is expected to grow by 1.9% this year, up from 1.7%.'

Now why would the pro EU / anti Brexit hide those figures where the majority of readers of that article wouldn't see it? Can we trust the predictions of the pro EU / anti Brexit IMF anyway?

'I never said we'd write off student debt' per BBC News

The BBC report

'Jeremy Corbyn: I never said we would write off student debt

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that his party did not make a commitment to write off existing student debt during the general election campaign.

Mr Corbyn was responding to a question from the BBC's Andrew Marr about an interview he gave to music paper the NME before June's general election, in which he had said he was "looking at ways" to reduce the debt burden.

Mr Corbyn said that shadow chancellor John McDonnell is currently looking at the party's policy and will set out its plans at a point in the future.'

Maybe the BBC could publish what they said about Mr Corbyn's interview at the time... Did the BBC mislead the public in order to boost the student vote for Labour?

Palestinian heroism?

PA TV Host and Released Terrorist, Murderer of 16 People, Reminisce about the Days of the Intifada

Baydaa' Mu'ammar, a host on the official Palestinian Authority TV channel, interviewed terrorist Abd Al-Hadi Ghneim, who in 1989 forced a bus traveling from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem into a ravine, killing 16 people, and who was released in the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap. Mu'ammar said that "we long for the days of the Intifada" and told Ghneim that "we always salute this heroic role." The interview aired on May 22.

Baydaa' Mu'ammar: "Today, as the (prisoners' hunger) strike is escalating, we long for the days of the Intifada, the days of the revolution, when the Palestinian people were fighting for freedom, in order to put an end to settlements... They were fighting against the occupation, which exists to this day. Why is today different than those days? We hold in esteem any effort taken by our Palestinian people, but we want more from them."

Abd Al-Hadi Ghneim: "Yes, you are taking me back to the days of the 1987 Intifada, in which I was active one way or another. In the attack that I carried out - the bus 405 attack - 16 Zionists died and 24 were wounded.


"I was captured after the attack, and I was treated [medically] and all that. I spent 22.5 years (in prison)."

Baydaa' Mu'ammar: "We always salute this heroic role."

Thanks to MEMRI for this one.

Donald Trump insists he has 'complete power' to pardon per BBC News

The BBC are outraged that President Donald Trump has the power to pardon people...

'Presidents can pardon people before guilt is established or even before the person is charged with a crime.'

I don't remember the BBC getting similarly outraged when President Bill Clinton pardoned some very questionable people at the end of his Presidency. But that's the joy of the BBC: no moral compass, just sheer bias.

BBC corrects misleading Jerusalem terror headline after outrage from Israel, Jewish organizations per World Jewish Congress

'In a statement explaining the retraction of its original headline, the BBC said that it accepted that it "did not appropriately reflect the nature of the events" and that while "there was no intention to mislead our audiences, we regret any offense caused."

Israeli Ambassador to the UK, Yuval Rotem, tweeted following the retraction: "@BBCWorld admits mistake, but such mistakes happen way too often. #BBC consumers beware."'

The full story is here

Institutional anti Israel propaganda all over the BBC.

Listen to what they say, they make no secret of their aims

Egyptian Islamic scholar Sheikh Ayman Khamis said that Al-Andalus was "occupied by the Spaniards just like Palestine is occupied by the Jews, and we shall take it back, Allah willing." He was speaking on Mekameleen TV, a Turkey-based Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood channel, on June 11.

Ayman Khamis: "Al-Alndalus is just like Palestine. We shall never forget our lands. We say to the West: We shall never forget our lands. We shall take it back from you because it is occupied land. Al-Andalus is occupied by the Spaniards, just like Palestine is occupied by the Jews, and we shall take it back, Allah willing."

I've reported previously that there are plenty of Islamists who openly state what their aims are for the West but that the European governments and the likes of the BBC just ignore these statemnets for fear of having to acknowledge the sheer horror of the situation that we are in.

Three Israelis stabbed to death in West Bank attack per BBC News

This piece of shit article by the institutionally anti Israel BBC contains the usual fake equivalence figures and narrative that I've covered too many times now. I really cannot be bothered to analyse such crap any more. Until the BBC release the Balen Report let's just accept that the BBC is institutionally anti Israel and move on.

This particular BBC report ends by linking to a piece 'Is Palestinian-Israeli violence being driven by social media?' I'd say that the Palestinian Israeli violence is being driven by Islam's hatred of Jews and by the majority of the world's media, especially the BBC, spewing out anti Israel propaganda masquerading as news. The BBC and other media have Jewish Israeli blood on their hands and should be held to account.

What the BBC don't tell you about the British woman who says she is being forced to go to court to get an apology after she was questioned by counter-terrorism police for reading a Syrian art book on a plane

The BBC report on 'Apology demanded after airport terror stop for reading Syrian book' thus:

'A British woman says she is being forced to go to court to get an apology after she was questioned by counter-terrorism police for reading a Syrian art book on a plane.

Faizah Shaheen was reported to authorities by Thomson cabin crew on a honeymoon flight to Turkey in 2016.

Her lawyers told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme she believes she was singled out because of her race.

Thomson said its crew were "trained to report any concerns" as a precaution.

Ms Shaheen - a Muslim, whose work in mental health care in part involves looking for the signs of radicalisation in young people - was reading Syria Speaks: Art and Culture from the Frontline on the outbound flight.

The book is a collection of literature, photos, songs and cartoons from Syrian artists and writers.
She was stopped by police when she returned to the UK two weeks later.'

Oddly the BBC haven't shown any images from that book, here's a couple:

I wonder why these images might cause a member of aircrew some concern.

I wonder why the BBC choose not to show these images, is context unimportant?

University first-class degrees soaring per BBC News

Chronic grade inflation?

'The proportion of top degree grades being awarded by UK universities has soared - with some universities giving first-class degrees to more than a third of their students.

The University of Surrey awarded a first-class degree to 41% of students last year, more than doubling the proportion five years ago.

And firsts awarded at the University of East Anglia have almost trebled to 37%.

Professor of education Alan Smithers called it "chronic grade inflation".'

When Bill Clinton Was Paid $500,000 to Speak in Russia, Hillary Opposed State Dept. Sanctions

News that never features on the pro Hillary Clinton BBC.

'Hillary Clinton sought to tamp down reports about her opposition to Russia sanctions that coincided with a speech her husband gave in Moscow that landed him half a million dollars.

Hillary Clinton opposed Russia sanctions in 2010 when her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was paid to give a speech at the Russian bank Renaissance Capital, Fox News reports.

The bank was connected to the fraud case that led to the sanctions posed by the Magnitsky Act, and after the former president gave the speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin called him to say thanks.

This story did not receive much attention while President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were pursuing their Russian "reset," but Hillary Clinton's campaign took pains to prevent the story of Bill's speech from getting out. In 2015, campaign operatives were able to prevent a mainstream media outlet from reporting on it."With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC's opposition to the Magnitsky bill a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow," Jesse Lehrich, who was part of Hillary For America's Rapid Response Communications team, said on May 21, 2015.

The memo was released by WikiLeaks, with "HRC" and "WJC" referring to Hillary and Bill Clinton respectively.'

'UK inequality reduced since 2008' per BBC News

The BBC report through gritted teeth

'The gap between the richest and poorest households in the UK has narrowed since the recession of 2007-08, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).

In its latest report on living standards, the IFS said rising employment and sharp falls in income in the middle and top earning households was behind the decline in inequality.

There had been a "dramatic" fall in inequality in London, the IFS said.'

Oh dear, that very counter the BBC/Labour Party narrative.

I expect they'll get their best minds onto how to put this report into context, giving prominence to a Labour Party spokesperson will be a priority.

The three terrorists, all of whom were residents of Umm el-Fahm, were praised at a special memorial ceremony held at the local mosque they attended,.. '

For similar displays, see and The ceremony is held annually at the Al-Hoda kindergarten, which is affiliated with the Islamic Jihad.

Those peaceful Palestinians (part 1 - The cleric)

That video is of an address at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, by the Palestinian cleric Sheikh Nadhal Siam, also known as "Abu Ibrahim". He criticized the Saudi and Qatari regimes, which, he said, were "immersed in collaboration" with the Americans and the English, respectively. His prayers to Allah to "enable us to slaughter" the Americans, the Europeans and the "criminal and treacherous" Arab rulers were answered by cries of "Amen" from his audience.

His words which I quote below are the sort of hate-speech by Palestinian and other Islamist clerics that the BBC and other pro-Palestinian media just don't quote, preferring to propagandise on the Palestinians behalf that they are peace-loving people oppressed by the Zionist entity.

'"Do not think that some of the collaborators are right and some are wrong. They are all equally collaborators. Just as the Saudi regime is a lackey of the Americans, and is immersed in collaboration with them, the Qatari regime is a lackey of the English, and is immersed in collaboration with them. All these [regimes] are like riding beasts ridden by the superpowers.


"Oh Allah, enable us to slaughter the Americans!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "And the Europeans!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "And our criminal and treacherous [Arab] rulers!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "Oh Allah, bring about their downfall soon!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "Oh Allah, do not leave a single one of them on the face of the earth!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "Oh Allah, bring about their downfall and their annihilation soon!"

Audience: "Amen!"

Nadhal Siam: "Oh Allah, replace them with the Emir of the Believers!"

Audience: "Amen!"'

When he calls for the "slaughter of the Americans" and "Europeans", and his audience say Amen, do understand what they mean...

"HILLARY WIKILEAKS: Top 10 You Must Know"

Months later how many of these Wikileaks details were reported by the likes of CNN and the BBC? I wonder why that's the case?

I've Worked with Refugees for Decades. Europe's Afghan Crime Wave Is Mind-Boggling. Per The National Interest

This article by someone who's worked with immigrants for many years is profoundly depressing. Here's an extract but do read the whole piece:

'This brings us to a third, more compelling and quite disturbing theory—the one that my Afghan friend, the court translator, puts forward. On the basis of his hundreds of interactions with these young men in his professional capacity over the past several years, he believes to have discovered that they are motivated by a deep and abiding contempt for Western civilization. To them, Europeans are the enemy, and their women are legitimate spoils, as are all the other things one can take from them: housing, money, passports. Their laws don't matter, their culture is uninteresting and, ultimately, their civilization is going to fall anyway to the horde of which one is the spearhead. No need to assimilate, or work hard, or try to build a decent life here for yourself—these Europeans are too soft to seriously punish you for a transgression, and their days are numbered.

And it's not just the sex crimes, my friend notes. Those may agitate public sentiment the most, but the deliberate, insidious abuse of the welfare system is just as consequential. Afghan refugees, he says, have a particular proclivity to play the system: to lie about their age, to lie about their circumstances, to pretend to be younger, to be handicapped, to belong to an ethnic minority when even the tired eye of an Austrian judge can distinguish the delicate features of a Hazara from those of a Pashtun.

I see his point. In the course of my research, I encountered thirty-year-olds with family in Austria who were passing themselves off as "unaccompanied minors." I met people misrepresenting an old traffic injury as proof that they had been tortured. I learned of an Afghan family that had emigrated to Hungary two decades ago. The children were born there and attended Hungarian schools. When the refugee crisis erupted, enticed by news of all the associated benefits, this family decided to take on a new identity and make their way to Sweden on the pretense of being brand-new refugees. Claiming to have lost their papers during their "flight," they registered under new assumed names and reduced the ages of their children; the mother declared herself a widow. Now ensconced in comfortable free housing along with their hale, hearty and very much alive father—whom they pass off as an uncle—with a monthly welfare check, they are smug parasites leeching off the gullibility of Sweden's taxpayers.'

Do read the whole piece to learn about the types of attacks and the way that these 'refugees' game Europe's legal systems to ensure that they can never be deported away from their European benefits.

A unbiased, unobsessed by promoting immigration especially from the Muslim world BBC would report this sort of article but that isn't what the BBC is.

Refugees from war or economic migrants?

There's one passage in this Breitbart report on immigration from Africa into Italy that caught my eye :

'Based on statements received at the time of landing in Italy, the 2017 migrants home countries are Nigeria (14,504), Bangladesh (8,268), Guinea (7,844), Ivory Coast (7,455), Gambia (5,022), Senegal (4,914), Mali (4,862), Eritrea (4,553), Morocco (4,190) and Sudan (4,051).'

The African countries are not all war torn but what's that country from where the second highest number of immigrants came? Bangladesh? Poor yes, but not war torn.

Somehow I doubt that the institutionally pro unlimited immigration BBC will choose to report such inconvenient numbers, that might let the cat out of the bag.
