‘First The Saturday people, Then The Sunday People’

Graffitti on a wall in Bethlehem where Christians are being driven out…and not by Israelis.


The Jews have pretty much been driven out of all their old communities in the Middle East….and now a drive to eliminate the Christians is under way…and not just in the Middle East.


Thanks to Downboy for highlighting this interview:

Baroness Warsi was in the Today studio being interviewed by Sarah Montague (53:30) about her claims that Christians were being persecuted.

Sarah Montague has an unusual take on who is doing the persecuting…..asking is it in countries like Pakistan, Iraq…and Israel, that politicians must speak out and then this problem could be solved?

Israel?  Israel is persecuting Christians?  Really?  Of course the truth is that she is insinuating that Israel is persecuting and oppressing Palestinians.

Christians have always been a minority in Israel, but it is the only Middle East nation where the Christian population has grown in the last half century (from 34,000 in 1948 to 140,000 today), in large measure because of the freedom to practice their religion.


The BBC is all too ready to make baseless accusations about Israel and include it in a discussion in which it has no part to play but is very reluctant to give it any credit for what it does do…..

Which country is absent from the BBC’s list of international aid efforts in the Philippines?

On November 10th a lead team of experts in search & rescue and medicine from the IDF’s Home Front Command left Israel and travelled the 6,000 miles to the typhoon-stricken Philippines in order to assess the needs of the local population.

On the basis of that lead team’s assessments, a delegation set out for the Philippines on the morning of November 13th. In addition to around 100 tons of humanitarian aid and medical supplies, the mission includes 150 team members from the IDF Home Front Command’s Search & Rescue Unit and from the IDF Medical Corps. A field hospital is being set up and live updates are available here and here.



It looks like the BBC has form on this:

 No BBC reports on Israeli medical aid for wounded Syrians

The IDF has now set up a field hospital in the north of the Golan Heights in order to provide medical care for the increasing numbers of Syrians seeking Israeli help.

So far, the BBC has shown no interest in reporting this story.



And again:

Israel builds a field hospital in Haiti. Anti-Zionists not fooled!

Clever people the Jews… oops, I mean the Israelis. Look at the lengths to which they have gone to distract the world from their daily ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. The latest trick is an Israeli field hospital, rushed into Haiti last Friday and erected in a soccer field.

Information from Israeli government sources should, of course, be taken with a grain of salt, but footage of this tent-city/hospital has now been seen on SKY, Fox and CNN, ABC and CBS and the video seems to confirm (Mossad video fabricators are tricky) at least that the facility is large, clean, and full of modern equipment. CBS’s piece called the hospital the “Rolls Royce of medicine in Haiti”.

Thankfully, the BBC has kept its head and is not colluding with the Israeli government’s attempt to make the world forget its sins.



All just a coincidence that little old Israel gets forgotten by the BBC.

    Ordinarily I’d steer clear of proof of negatives, not because they aren’t egregious but simply so hard to quantify and prove, hence a gift to BBC ‘belief’ bounce from CECUTT.
    However, these absences are so frequent, and noticeable, that surely questions of BBC’s higher strategic command need to be answered on what can only be institutional blanking policies. Only ‘offset’ by extraordinary choices of what to actually cover, too often in accurately.
    Their editorial now seems riven with those whose prejudices outweigh their professional objectivity, overseen by line management either complicit or in fear of correcting them.


  2. DownBoy says:

    Thanks Alan. As I said on another thread about the Warsi interview, I find Sarah Montague’s seemingly casual slur disgraceful. Israel is a liberal democracy which in is in no way involved in the very real persecution of Christians. The persecution is an ISLAMIC phenomenon, yet Islam was not even mentioned by the interviewer. Montague is neither stupid nor is she ill informed as far as I know, so what is going on here?


    • lojolondon says:

      To us she is a stupid, racist, corrupt lying fraud. But when you look at the world through R4-tinted lenses, you just say what you see!


    • Alan says:

      Should apologize to you…it was your comment that pointed me in the direction of the interview as hadn’t heard it…..would have ‘hat tipped’ but it was late and I was too lazy to go back and find out who made the comment.


      • DownBoy says:

        You’ve done a great job in running with this one, Alan. I have made a complaint to the BBC for the first time ever on this.


      • King Richard says:

        ‘I was too lazy to go back and find out who made the comment. ‘

        Says it all Alan.


  3. noggin says:

    we are talking about abhorrent persecution, nay committed religious, “cleansing” by a genocidal cult.

    Deliberate obfuscation, lying by omission, protectionist of the perpetrators …. same old story
    Does she just “happen” to be muslim? and will arrogantly use that interview as an example of speaking out?, this unelected unrepresentative
    shill grrr! …. there are no words
    The BBC true to form on Israel, caught out lying again, beneath contempt.


  4. chrisH says:

    I`ve spread the word about this-there`s a campaign here.
    To attack Christians using the sand sock of Israel is a new low for the BBC-and its casual mention shows how bold and embedded their lazy reflex anti-Semitism is.
    Time to rise up and tell others about this…churches locally will be getting this one tomorrow if we can wake the buggers up.


  5. Yipes says:

    Speaking of the Philippines, very slightly off subject, but the bias is so palpable, this morning just after 7, Justin Hate America Webb said that the island country was so badly treated by America when it was a colony!
    I leave the history and the comments to you.


    • MartinW says:

      I have notice that this sort of thing is very much par for the course so far as J., Webb in concerned. He slips in these little comments and continues immediately with another question. Webb does this with increasing frequency, emboldened by the Today editor, and more generally, the BBC, failing to stop him.


  6. DP111 says:

    Persecution of all religious minorities is endemic in all Muslim countries. Even when the country is legally not Islamic, but there is a significant Muslim presence, then burning churches, temples etc occurs as the norm.

    Of course Muslims will always claim that Islam is all about peace. Muslims will inform you that

    1. It is only a tiny minority of Muslims who are extremist. And as an extension, they will add that all religions have extremists.

    2. Muslims persecution is really a retaliation against injustice by the other.

    One must bear in mind, that Islam always gets its retaliation in first. This is because any attempt to even criticize Islam, is opposing Islam, and thus an act of war. Retaliation (Jihad), is therefore a natural response, and can take the form of burning churches, to bombs, and “ethnic” cleansing.

    But we must remember that Islam is a RoP, and retaliatory Jihad occurs only when opposed in any form.

    Offensive Jihad is allowed only when a caliphate exists, and is by order of a caliph. This why OBL, and all believing Muslims, wish to establish a caliphate. Without a caliphate, Muslims do not see how the world can be brought under sharia law. I sympathize.


  7. RHG says:

    The BBC didn’t report this either….yet it was all over the wires…..

    Though reports are coming through about ‘activists’ being given are hard time by various Islamist ‘militants’..the on-going murder of indigenous Christians is widespread and has been for months.

    All the BBC comes up with is a piece..that suggests that Christian martyrdom is ‘exaggerated’ as a phenomenon..

    Yet the slightest rumour of anything that can be attributed to reported and speculated upon ..usually with the formulaic language about settlements.

    So ..Jews bad. Christians..not interesting..but the Sunni version of Mohammedanism gets the full spread..even before full verification demonstrates that elements gleefully reported may not have been as reported.


  8. David Preiser (USA) says:

    I’m actually wondering if Montague is simply foolish and misguided enough to think not that Israel or Israeli Jews persecute Christians but that Israel could do something about Palestinian/Israeli-Arab persecution of Christians in their midst.


  9. chrisH says:

    Talking about Sunday People.
    Somebody kind at the BBC has clearly got the notion that the great Christian apologist and thinker-CS Lewis-is coming up to 50 years being dead.
    So-a service tomorrow on Radio 4…Screwtape Letters serialised starting Monday….this could be good!
    Wonder how the god-haters that infest the BBC will try to limit his achievements or his lifetimes work?…I hope I`m being unduly cynical…for he was near-enough the last great avowed Christian in British public life with a brain.
    Cliff Richard doesn`t count , by the way!


    • Clive says:

      There’s a good piece here:

      He had a brain, but was sadly deluded as he could never quite complete his own syllogism:

      A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg – or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse.
