BBC report on Israeli field hospital in Nepal

It is always a pleasure to be able to note the appearance of accurate and impartial BBC produced content on Israel-related topics and just such reporting appeared on the BBC News website’s Asia page on May 1st in the form of a filmed report which was also shown on BBC television news.

The BBC’s Clive Myrie visited the IDF’s field hospital in Nepal and filed the following report.

The IDF field hospital has already treated more than a thousand patients and also in Nepal are a team of Israeli medical clowns and an IsraAID delegation which is offering medical care in more remote areas.

  1. Here are some very important angles concerning the Nepal tragedy that a truly impartial and unbiased BBC should give in-depth coverage to:

    !. How has tiny Israel, with a population of seven million, managed to send the largest rescue contingent of 260 personnel, led by an Ethiopian-Israeli army doctor to Nepal?

    2. Why have oil-rich Arab states sent no rescuers or medics at all.

    3. Why have and which nation states reneged on their financial aid pledges to the Nepalese, or, at least, the money has not arrived so far?

    4. Why has Britain, with a population of 62 million, sent only 64 rescuers and a team of a mere four ex-Ghurka soldiers, natives of Nepal from a British regiment, who may have gone to Nepal of their own accord? Surely Britain should have sent the whole Ghurka regiment at taxpayers’ expense, or a large part of it.

  2. I think you may be overestimating the nature of the report – to me, it looks rather like the exception that proves the rule: the next time anyone complains about ongoing anti-Israel bias, the BBC can just self-righteously point to this item by way of confounding their critics.
