Tears Of A Clown


Jon Donnison


Jon Donnison gets ever more bizarre:















Still relying on children to get people to look at his ‘journalism’ though….











He’s so popular that he has to limit those who want to read  and respond to his schtick:

Some unfortunately he can’t block…the truth is out there…just not on Donnison’s Twitter feed:







Always tickles me how numbnuts Israel hating Donnison doesn’t have a clue what is going on in Gaza and yet keeps bluffing it like he does……claiming Hamas didn’t kidnap the Israeli teens….








Who is the Plitnick Donnison links to?…..a lefty peacenik:

Mitchell Plitnick is the former Director of the US Office of B’Tselem: The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories and was previously the Director of Education and Policy for Jewish Voice for Peace.


Why not listen to Hamas and the terrorists themselves?:



A longer video of Hamas commander al Arouri’s speech – as broadcast on Al Jazeera – can be seen here courtesy of MEMRI.

“Our goal was to ignite an intifada in the West Bank and Jerusalem as well as within the 1948 borders [Israel]. The activity of the people has broadened to include all the occupied land, reaching its peak in the heroic operation, carried out by the Al-Qassam Brigades, in which three settlers were captured in Hebron. There has been a lot of confusion regarding this operation. Some said that this was a conspiracy of the occupation [Israel]. That’s not true. Your brothers in the Al-Qassam Brigades carried out this operation to support their imprisoned brothers who were on hunger strike.”


Al Qassam being the military wing of Hamas.


The terrorist killers of the three teenagers admit it was a Hamas operation:

Hossam Kawasmeh, arrested on July 11, admitted to leading cell which abducted and murdered Gil-Ad Schaer, Eyal Yifrach, and Naftali Frenkel; He received funds from Hamas.

Kawasmeh received funding for the terror attack from Hamas members in the Gaza Strip. He was arrested by Yamam, an elite counter-terror unit, following a tip from the Shin Bet.



Here Donnison tries to tell us Hamas is not like ISIS….

Trouble is, in essence it is true……their aims are the same and they work together indirectly…ISIS has few if any direct links with Hamas but it is an offshoot of Al Qaeda which is in Gaza….


Here is what a senior Hamas member said in 2007:

Zahar went on about the inevitability of Islamic rule in Gaza, the West Bank and across the Arab world.
“We believe that this is the era of change, that the coming decades will see Islamic rule in Arab countries,” he said. “I am not speaking about hopes here. I am just reading the reality. Today, even the thief, before he commits his crime, asks god to help him.”
“In a few years [Islam] can gather supreme power in the form of money, power, armies, human beings… from Morocco to Indonesia.”
“How are we going to manage the relationship between the West and Islam? If we are going to see each other as enemies we will see world war IV.”


…..and Hamas works hand in hand with Al Qaeda terrorists of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades:

Abdullah Azzam Brigades launches rocket attacks from Gaza

The Abdullah Azzam Brigades, which is named after al Qaeda’s co-founder and Osama bin Laden’s mentor, was formed by Saleh al Qarawi sometime after 2004 as an offshoot of al Qaeda in Iraq, and was tasked with hitting targets in the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories) and throughout the Middle East.


And here is Al Qaeda expressing its brotherhood and solidarity with ISIS:

“We announce solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the crusade. Their blood and injuries are ours and we will surely support them……We stand by the side of our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the American and Iranian conspiracy and their agents of the apostate Gulf rulers.”



Sickeningly Donnison tries to hijack the Holocaust to defend his own anti-Israel stance against allegations that reporting such as his is responsible in part for a rise in anti-Semitism:









Donnison then links to a BBC article that is trying to play down anti-Semitism around the world….because it is implicated in its rise with coverage from the likes of…guess who…Jon Donnison….






Despite ‘The UK Association of Chief Police Officers, which has released statistics on hate crime since 2009, has talked of a “significant rise” in anti-Semitism since the latest fighting began in Gaza in early July’  apparently we’re, and they are, mistaken…..it’s not so much a rise in anti-Semitism…. it’s only an increased awareness of it…our perceptions distorted by a few eye catching, high profile mass killings…difficult to identify a trend…the picture is mixed…the questions asked in polls fail to adequately identify if it really is anti-Semitism….it could all be based on criticism of the Israeli government…and anyway….“We have many surveys, even before 1990. What they show is a decline in prejudice towards minorities, and especially towards Jews. Actually Jews are the best accepted minority in France….the Jews remain the most accepted group in France. We see the same thing in Europe.”

Ultimately it’s all in the Jew’s own little minds….’While the overall trends are harder to discern, the current nature and level of anti-Semitic incidents are enough to make some Jewish people feel afraid.’


Shame the BBC doesn’t ask a particular community how they feel about Jews….Kinda think wouldn’t then be ‘the most accepted group in Europe’ for that group.

Perhaps the BBC should also be asking who is carrying out the most anti-Semitic attacks.


Finally we have this from Donnison…..ironic considering Donnison’s exploitation of dead and injured women and children to peddle his support for Hamas:









So just how well did Donnison do?

He’s wrong about Hamas not kidnapping the Israeli teens.

He’s wrong about Hamas/ISIS not being alike.

He’s wrong about there being little anti-Semitism…which is the not so subtle drift of the BBC article he links to.

He relies on pictures of dead and injured women and children to get any interest in his stuff…and that interest is going to be mostly from pro-Hamas people praising his ‘journalism’.

He doesn’t like criticism of his ‘journalism’.  Which must be difficult for him all considered.


Suggest he go walk-about in Oz and stay away from Twitter and the porn.

    does he not know irony? that last tweet is hilarious considering Hamas’s propaganda war that the bbc has fallen for


  2. TPO says:

    The man is clearly unhinged.


  3. RCE says:

    Well that’s just nit-picking.


  4. Guess Who says:

    Wow, that’s a pretty special collection from our Jon.

    I got the impression even Jezza had decided the ME beat was really not working out for his brand of selective ‘reporting’, so Gaza’s loss was Australia’s gain. Then, in an apparent effort to make up the numbers he was returned from sniping at Mr. Abbott to going full Haw Haw for his ideological soul mates.

    Not sure such loyal support of a loose cannon will serve the BBC’s reputation well in light of his published works.

    Mass blockings is usually a sign of plots being lost left, left and left of centre. As a journalist, even one proudly with views his own, if you blot out even the ignorant and foolish (in his head), you are left with a very one-sided GIGO mechanism.

    Which may explain much, if not excuse it.

    Final thought… Why not make the lady from BBC Watch new Trust Chair?

    Seems Danny-pleasingly diverse on the gender front, and by the evidence of our Jon, unlike the opera, Glasto & Wimbles royal box-bestowed market rates, actually does seem to watch the product they are supposed to be overseeing.

    She also knows the difference between facts from reliable sources and ‘belief’ passed on from a select group of sycophants in the bunker.


    • Guest Who says:

      The latest from that one woman in the Golan Heights to ‘tickle’ Jon and his camp followers, from her Technocrati Top 100 blog:


      Not much ‘belief’ or bluster there.

      More cold, hard fact, mostly featuring BBC URL, quote or page capture, especially for when the BBC ‘evolves’ the story away from areas that don’t suit.

      I count making things disappear under the latter.

      So in terms of news analysis that’s:

      £4Bpa ‘news’ monoply monolith – 0 One woman, gratis – 1(000)

      That the likes of Mr. Donnison get to draw a salary for the efforts continues to surprise.


      • John Anderson says:

        If BBCWatch really is a one-woman job – she is working really hard, very methodically – and is single-handedly exposing that the BBC has been biased right across the board on Gaza.

        Just her work output shames the lazy bastards at the BBC. More importantly, her precision and accuracy shames the woolly sob-story stuff we endlessly get froam the BBC.


        • JW says:


          You got on before me and said exactly what I was going to say. The BBCWatch site doesn’t have a vast army of journalists in its employ- it just looks like it does.


  5. AngusPangus says:

    There’s not even any pretence of being impartial is there?

    He displays his bias with pride; like a peacock displaying his tail-feathers.

    “Look at me! Look at me! I’m a fully paid-up member of the liberal intelligentsia! Aren’t I a great person!”

    And when he gets criticism, does he stop and think? Nah, he boasts that he sticks his fingers in his ears and goes “Lalallalalalalalalalalala”. Note that the more than 300 tweeters he blocked in just 1 day include the “ignorant” and the “foolish”. In other words, people who just disagreed with him.


    • Guess Who says:

      ‘In other words, people who just disagreed with him’
      Of course,this is exactly what the BBC complaints system does too, when confronted by evidence of its own failure it cannot figure out how to make go away by one of its other zero integrity techniques.


  6. hippiepooter says:

    Jon Donnison isn’t a ‘reporter’ of the news, he’s an arbiter of the news. He’s selecting what news he wants us to hear, often completely false, and telling us what we should think.

    The license payer doesn’t pay for news arbitration, it pays for news reporting.

    When the ‘arbitration’ acts as propaganda for genocidal anti-semitic terrorists, it beggars belief that there are not howls of outrage in Parliament and motions tabled demanding the BBC sack the likes of Donnison, Bown and J. Dimbleby.

    The fact is, our Parliamentarians are too afraid of the propaganda power of the Guardian/BBC axis.

    If Friends of Israel in Parliament wont raise their voices against this Goebbels style evil spewing out of the BBC, who on earth will?

    I would love to see the likes of Melanie Phillips and Douglas Murray form a new party. There is no Parliamentarian that speaks with the moral clarity with which Churchill and his allies spoke when warning us of the danger of Hitler.

    If we don’t have those voices in Parliament, we will fall to evil.


    • Ken says:

      Melanie Philips and Douglas Murray should join UKIP. No other party out there is willing to speak truth to power. All the other political parties want to have as little power as possible, but all the rewards and adulation.


  7. TheHighlandRebel says:

    No sign of Donison reporting on this.
    btw serious questions must be asked about this country’s membership of the UN…they are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and should be brought to account or disbanded immediately.


    • John Anderson says:

      as he says – the rocket launcher is 50 metres from where MOST OF THE JOURNALISTS STAY.

      Including the BBC ?


    • richard D says:

      Hmmm – just noticing all the kids in that area, playing about near a launching facility in Gaza…. and the world wonders why, when the IDF retaliates against these launch sites, as they are perfectly entitled to do, there are lots of children who become casualties….

      But hey, it can’t be ’cause and effect’, because the BBC doesn’t work that way…. it’s ‘effect and cause’, and clearly, therefore, all the fault of the IDF, in the strident view of the BBC.


  8. stuart says:

    jon donnison just fits the perfect picture of one of these socalist workers party placard waving protesers outside the isreali embassy alongside the islamists with there swp logo placards with death to the jews and hitler was right, and yes hitler would be smiling in his grave now about one thing,the anti semites and the socalist workers party jew baiters are doing a fine job of stirring up hatred in the uk against innocent jews who fear to even go in tescos and sainburys now because no doubt the racist muslims and the white trash swp leftists will trash and throw about food goods and any items that is stored in the kosher section.


  9. johnnythefish says:

    So we’re to believe this half-witted Hamas apologist will report impartially on behalf of his ‘trusted’ employer?
