BBC News ignored most terror attacks in first half of December

Since the beginning of December 2015 the BBC News website has published one report on the subject of the ongoing wave of terrorism against Israelis. That December 4th article came after a ten-day hiatus in reporting on terror attacks and was followed by a further ten days (to date) in which the BBC refrained from covering any of the terror attacks which took place, including the December 14th vehicular attack in Jerusalem later claimed by Hamas.No news

“A terrorist from East Jerusalem plowed his car into a group of Israeli civilians at a bus stop at the entrance to Jerusalem on Monday afternoon, injuring 14 people. A 15-month-old baby was badly hurt, and two other people were moderately hurt, one of them a woman in her 70s. The infant’s mother was also among the injured.

Police named the terrorist as Abed el-Muhsen Hassuna, a 21-year-old resident of the neighborhood of Beit Hanina. He was shot dead as he tried to exit the car. A new axe and a new screwdriver were found in the vehicle.”

A stoning attack on the same day in which three people were wounded was likewise ignored. Acts of terrorism which the BBC has not found it necessary to report since the beginning of December also include:

The corporation is clearly not fulfilling the pledge made to its funding public “to keep them in touch with what is going on in the world, giving insight into the way people live in other countries”.

  1. All Jewish people know that the BBC is failing in its statutory job of keeping the world in the know of what is the truth of the conflict between Israel and the PA. What is more interesting is…………. what is BBC Watch doing about it – other than preaching to the converted ?

    • BBC Watch is building a permanent and comprehensive record of BBC bias in its reporting on Israel.

      What are you doing about it Grimey?
