As is common knowledge by now, the BBC Jerusalem bureau’s Yolande Knell recently produced TV and audio reports from Hebron that — like the rest of the BBC’s coverage of the ongoing wave of terror attacks in Israel — made no effort to inform audiences of the role played by the Palestinian Authority in inciting such attacks, and its related glorification of terrorism.

In recent days, the Palestinian Authority has held state funerals with military honors for terrorists who were killed while carrying out attacks on Israelis. Palestinian Authority officials were present at the funerals of five terrorists in Hebron on October 31st.

Israeli’s Channel 10 also reports that PA President Mahmoud Abbas has ordered financial grants to be paid to the families of the terrorists killed while carrying out attacks. According to Channel 10’s Arab affairs correspondent, Zvi Yehezkeli, this is the first time that terrorists have been given military funerals by the PA, and the order to do so came directly from Abbas. Yehezkeli adds that although the PA officially bans the flying of Hamas flags in Hebron, such flags were permitted at the recent funerals there.

The BBC refrained from covering any and all aspects of those recent funerals, meaning that BBC audiences remain uninformed about the PA’s glorification of terrorism, as well as its incitement. Therefore, they are deprived of vital information necessary for them to understand this particular “international issue” — information that the BBC’s charter obliges it to provide.

    ..we can as well add; the norwegian radio (NrK) reports in (only) blaming Israeli people and Israeli police on the last time terror…

    Mr. Knell has no shame and Mr. Abbas has no greatness. One lies by omission and the other shames himself with lies.

  • Does anyone who actually wants unbiased , honest reporting bother with the BBC?

    The BBC, New York Times, Jewish Voice for Peace, J Street; they all become a blur after a while.

    Wake up tax-paying Americans. Some of your Federal income tax payments are funding the PA’s payments to terrorists who kill Jews.

    Write your Congressperson and both of your US Senators and demand that Congress vote to stop giving US tax-dollars to help kill Jews.

      I’m writing my congressmen after I finish with the BBC. Especially since America is going deeper into debt to support this evil cause. Per BBC: I did notice that they have the same snotty superior attitude on other stories. Holier than thou Hopefully everyone finds them as tiresome as I do. Failure is their best reward!
