A BBC News presenter censored Israeli Economy Minister, Naftali Bennett, during a live interview on Tuesday when he held up a photo of a victim of Tuesday’s mass terror attack at a Jerusalem synagogue.

At least four Jewish worshipers were killed, and at least four are in critical or serious condition, in the wake of the attack at the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue in the capital’s Har Nof neighborhood.

Israeli Police said two Arab residents of the city Jabal Mukabar neighborhood entered at about 07:00 a.m., and then opened fire with weapons and struck worshipers with a meat cleaver and knives.

Indicting the Palestinian Authority (PA) for ongoing incitement leading up to the attack, Bennett charged that PA President Mahmoud Abbas, “…himself, incites, tells the the Arabs, ‘take arms, fight the Jews…'” and then held up a photo of a victim, laying dead on the floor of the synagogue, still wrapped in his prayer shawl and leather straps of his phylacteries (see photo).

The presenter immediately broke in, however saying, “…sorry, we don’t want to actually see that picture… please take that down.”

Bennett continued holding up the photo, saying, “this individual came this morning to pray, just like many Muslims, many Jews, came to pray this morning.

“The Muslims came home safe, but four Jews will never come home again,” Bennett asserted, over the protestations of the host.

On Facebook, Jonathan Sacerdoti of the UK’s Campaign Against Antisemitism slammed the BBC for its double standard on Israel. “BBC, which was happy to show dead kids in Gaza all summer, declares ‘we don’t want to actually see that picture… Take that down’ as Israeli minister shows them butchered Jewish worshiper killed this morning,” Sacerdoti wrote.

    Maybe the terrorists will receive the Victoria Cross

  • England is the same. They helped Jordan illegally occupy all of old Jerusalem, where the 100 years before the majority was Jewish – where they are not allowerd to live by Obama, EU. The only countries in the world who recognized that occupation was England, Iraq and Pakistan, the good friends. Now the rest of the world recognize the occupation 🙂 Except the owner, Israel.

    Israel must totally neglect that. Bennett is taking it the other way. Now business with Asia is more than with Obama’s regime, still less than with EU, 21 versus 32% Asia/EU, but Asia develops fast, EU not. I wait for the day soon when it passes EU, so they have nothing to squeeze with. Israel sells much vegetables etc to Russia now when EU boycot them. Russia sells an awful lot of energy to China and tne other day cut 60% to EU. Does not look good for EU. Soon EU will get big problems getting energy, North Africa’s energy controlled by terrorists, ISIS steals lots of oil to sell on the black market in Turkey, I hope Israel will be expensive when they sell to EU when gas and oil production goes up.

    It looks fine for Israel, be strong!

    • Phil

      What is your PhD in?

      how can Pakistan have recognised ‘that occupation’? it wasn’t a state yet. neither was Iraq an independent state. FYI you mean the United Kingdom, not England.

    CNN today 19/11 at 18:00 PM shows the development of recent violence starting with kidnapping and murder of the 3 israeli boys, burning of the palestinian boy, destruction in Gaza by Israel (1.200 dead palestinians and 74 israelis soldiers),cars over pedestrians and the synagogue massacre.
    What about the thousands of rockets over Israel that provoked Gaza ?
    How much of CNN’s is Arab onership ?

  • James David Tyler

    What more do you expect from the BBC who are anti Israel in so many of their ways.They have doctored the way incidents happen to show Israel in a bad light and let the Palestinian perpetrators be shown in a good way.

  • Europa apesta,nadie en su sano juicio debe vivir en europa, hay que ser duro con palestina, al incitador abbas debe de ser procesado penalmente, por su delito, y tratar a los palestinos como lo que son terroristas sacar a los palestinos de israel, contratar trabajadores de otra partes del mundo que no sean anti semitas

  • Jacqueline

    Hopefully American Jews are waking up Obama can’t even mention the slain were Jews but says many Palestinians have been killed.

  • Israel must response with massive struck. It is the only thing Arab understand. And let them (Israelis) not be afraid by world “opinion” or world critics or the like. And let them not be intimidated by accidentally killing a woman or a child: all Gaza strip celebrated killing of Israeli worshippers.
    And one more thing. All talks on Iran or with Iran, or deal with Iran, as well as other talks and deals in the Middle East (e.g. Syria), are mockery unless Russia is excluded from the talks. Putin clearly said he would help Iran with its nuclear program. Any deal, if even it will be worked out will not kept up due to Russia. From one side, the West makes sanction on Russia, from another sede it makes Russia its partner. Nonsense!

    • Alison Weston

      Well said

  • Never trust an Arab they will smile and tell you their your friend…then stab you in the back while smiling! True land for all Arabs…iis Antartica! that should cool down their murderous hate!

  • alexander

    I am not Jewish, but I am a friend of Israel , and I believe the Temple Mount is the sole property of the Jewish nation. As the site of the most ancient of Jewish temples , no other people have the right to invade this space. A mosque does not belong there. In true Islamic fashion , when Muslim invaders conquered Jerusalem centuries ago, they built their symbol, a mosque on the most holy site for the Jewish people. This was disgraceful, but they do it all the time as a symbol of their supposed control over the land in victory. The same has happened in New York. After 911, they build a mosque near the site of the attack. It’s their arrogant Islamic way . And it’s time for the rest of the non muslim world to recognize how they really are.

    • Otto Schiff

      A very good description of the problem.

  • Ivan Gur-Arie

    I saw on the news today that ISIS took over a Libyan city. It is there too. The next line in the news item was that ISIS is looking to Europe. So BBC watch out. They are coming to get you too. Sit around with anti semitic smugness much characterized in British society and your heads will be sitting on spikes too. YOu were cowards before WW2 and you have not changed.

    • Otto Schiff

      Es kann der Frömmste nicht in Frieden lebe, wenn es dem bösen Nacbarn nicht gefälly.
      Even the most devout can not live in peace when his evil neighbor does not like it.

  • BBC, of all Democratic countries’ voices and images, has never shown any face other than its anti-Semitic one! It has gone out of its way to make murderous Palestinians appear to be nothing more than ‘angry’ Arabs with legitimate causes.

    Reality has a good habit of shoving the haughty BBC face into truth! Even if it only occurs infrequently. They couldn’t handle this one because a dead rabbi just doesn’t carry the same value as a dead Palestinian.

    • Otto Schiff

      The world should come to realize that the antisemites are the problem, not the Jews.
      Racists are miserable bastards.

    • john dickens

      The BBC has been rightly attacked for being on the side of Israel, and minimising the extent of the hideous genocide practiced by the apartheid state on a bi annual basis. But that doesnt stop you vile lying bigots whining, does it.

  • Jack Smith

    The thug, Naftali Bennett, the rest of Jews, wolf crying for 4 dead Jews and the scumbag

    Forgot, The Hebron massacre was a shooting attack carried out by American-born Israeli Baruch Goldstein, a member of the far-right Israeli Kach movement, who opened fire on unarmed Palestinian Muslims praying inside the Ibrahim Mosque at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, West Bank. It took place on February 25, 1994, during the overlapping religious holidays of and Ramadan. The attack left 29 male worshippers dead and 125 wounded. The attack only ended after Goldstein was overcome and beaten to death by survivors.

    • Janice Kenner

      One time! One mentally ill individual. He was beaten to death by muslims. He was NOT made a hero by Jews. But he will be used throughout eternity to justify muslim thugs killing innocent Jews. Jack, go back into the woodwork.

  • Fred

    Again the BBC shows it is the Arab mouthpiece. Low standard of reporting, biased to the extreme. Oh , how the Arab oil money facilitates the lies from the BBC presenters mouth.

  • Fritz Kohlhaas

    Go to hell BBC!

  • Sam Harris

    The BBC are swine.

  • Mickey Oberman

    Why have you not given the name of “the presenter”.

    Surely you are not intimidated.
    Are you?

      Actually, it’s better to have this article report on — & thus, implicate — the BBC. Because IT IS THE BBC, as an institution, that editorially skews the news so perversely. It’s easy enough to find out which show it is, and who was hosting, if you want to know (and I plan to look for him, too). The point is, BBC fosters this bigotry, which is widespread on its network. So, it’s best to focus the spotlight on the BBC exclusively, here.
      …And BTW, if The Algemeiner wasn’t intimidated by the big BBC, it makes no sense that the paper would feel intimidated by some Limey host. Hoping you’ll be more judicious in your accusations. I know it’s been an enraging time, for too long.

  • Mickey Oberman

    You can never expect anything better from the anti Semitic BBC.

    When? When? When will the true worshippers of YHVH be allowed to worship on His temple mount? How long will foreign gods determine what the people of Israel are allowed to do in their own land?

    Who? Who, is behind this façade of a temple, a foreign god setting on the mount of YHVH? Who represses the pray and worship of the people of YHVH from his mount?

  • Emanuel

    Thank you MK Naftali Bennett, thank you, thank you.

  • Bernhard Rosenberg I have resigned from the interfaith association and will not again participate in their interfaith holocaust SERVICE WHICH I ORIGINATED. I AM A PAST PRESIDENT.

    HATIKVAH has been included in every service since I created interfaith holocaust services in 1974 with no objection. N0 ONE HAS EVER WALKED out, sat down OR OBJECTED until recently. IMAMS have sat down or left before Hatikvah.

    – In 1944, Czech Jews spontaneously sang it at the entry to the Auschwitz-Birkenau gas chamber and, as reported by a member of the Sonderkommando, were beaten by SS guards.

    The link is clear, the Arabs were against Hatikvah before there was Israel or even before the myth of Palestinian people. Furthermore, Jews sang it while being led to their death. How dare anyone allow individuals to leave in protest during Hatikvah with the canard they are commemorating the Holocaust but against the State of Israel. Just keep quoting Dr Martin Luther King, Jr “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism.”

    HILLARY = OBAM 3, and 4

    . Where is our President Obama as our foreign policy has turned into a complete disaster.

    Video of Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg SAYS: President Obama, You Have Some Nerve:.

    Video is on

    Another holocaust is possible.

    • Efram

      G-d forbid!

    • Lauren Goldman

      Obama is probably busy writing a new way of telling Israel to use ‘restraint’. The muzzies walking out on ‘Hatikvah’ shouldn’t be too big a surprise; they tend to disrespect all religions and ways of life different than theirs. Once they weasel their way into organizations and feel secure, they often start with the innuendos and sideways remarks.

      I live a block away from a mosque, so I have to wade through a herd of them standing all over the sidewalk, out front, every Friday on the way to shul. Many times as I am walking toward them, they just stand there like I’m supposed to go around them. They have learned that I do not break my stride. And I wear a kippah all of the time.

      • Samuel A.

        Hey Lauren,

        I totally admire and respect that you walk to synagogue with such pride, however, even though you are demonstrating to them you are not afraid or effected by their negative presence, you are still putting yourself in harms way. Don’t you agree that you are putting yourself in harms way?
        Any who, I probably would do the same thing, since they most likely wouldn’t lay a finger on me just because of my size and vibe, since they’re deep down the type of people who rely on using weapons in the most cowardly, barbaric, and secretive ways to kill innocent people.
        Any way, I wish you a lot of protection from the One Above.
        Shabbat Shalom HaMeverach, Lauren.
        p.s. – is this a shul in the states?

        Samuel A.
