Still ignoring the question I see.
 

“But but, you make stupid comments. You’re not a military expert”😁 A classic RW divergent, well done.

As others have pointed out, the answers no. It’s a

meaningless comparison. Our media are perfectly entitled to prioritise reporting on the actions of a country facing a genocide case. 👍

 

Jesus. Right let’s break it down for you, first of all we know these things happen in war, your smart arse comment wasn’t so smart. 
 

Secondly the point about exposure was a statement. What I want to know is why folk like you ignore all of these other famines? For decades wars have been happening around the world, kids starving etc. not a peep from you. Happens in Palestine and you’re all over it.

The answer is no but you will not get a straight answer from mr tangent. We are sitting on our hands whilst Israel commits genocide. 

 

Some are not sitting on their hands, they appear to be actively celebrating the fact.

You can break it down all you want.

As I’ve said, this is a western democracy deliberately causing famine through an occupation. Not quite the same as an African drought or a Carribean Island still recovering from an Earthquake & gang violence ?

You’ll also see that Haiti is top headline news today. After you said everyone one was ignoring it. 🙈

Deary me

does that mean that the US are preventing aid? As that’s what you said. 
 

At no point have I said everyone is ignoring it. That’s you making things up. And if you think an African drought is the only cause of famine in many African countries then I strongly suggest having a read up on conflicts over there.

Looks like Hamas have been nicking the aid.  Who’d of thunk if hey.

You could start a new thread if you want to talk about all the other famines? This one is about Israel/Palestine.

Looks like aid has been getting through. Looks like Hamas have nicked it. Who’d of thunk if hey. 
 

 

It’s a coincidence that you should show a link from France 24. I’m just back from Prague and I watched FR 24 daily as it was the only decent English language news channel. It was obvious that they had a much more balanced view of the conflict which was what prompted me to mention the BBC News reporting.

Threads about Israel. Famine is in Palestine. You could start a thread about Palestine if you want

I’m sure some will disagree.

You really don’t need to tell any of us that the likes of Hamas won’t be sharing the scraps equally.

Did you think I thought they were the Red Cross? Covering all areas of Gaza with their magical headbands feeding the masses..
 

I’ve said all along that I think both Hamas & the Israeli government bear equal responsibility for the current state we’re in. And that includes events before October. The Israeli govn. is seen by many as the most extreme in Israel’s history. The policies in the West Bank, where Hamas don’t run the show, tell you all you need to know.

Israel could have prevented this famine. They didn’t need to punish innocent civilians on the scale they’ve chosen to. The US have stepped in & let’s just hope it’s in time to prevent further deaths from starvation. 

No point arguing further. You think the scale of Israel’s response is justified. I don’t 👍 The EU, ICJ, the US & many of our MPs are saying they’ve gone too far & will only make things worse in the long run. It’s hardly a radical view.

Ask stupid questions get stupid answers. Suppose it’s better than just making things up like your good self.

😂😂 It’s always good craic when you pretend to be the sensible one.

Aye.… it’s total fantasy that Israel have played a part in this famine. 

I must stop telling such lies.
 

Have you thought about contacting the ICJ to tell them that it’s all bollocks? It would save them a lot of wasted time on this genocide case.

I best head off anyway & do more googling about African famines.

 Thanks for the advice mate. I’ve learnt a lot.

Another apology. 
 

 

“The correct version was broadcast minutes later”

 An incredibly difficult conflict to report on. They’ve done absolutely the right thing apologising. Something not enough media sources do. Certainly not something anyone on Twitter does. Fair play.

It’s actually from last November. 😊

Yet, for some reason folk copy the reports and link to them immediately. 

 

I think it’s more about recognition when something has been seen as false.

 Most of the BBC reporting has been accurate. They are constantly hounded by both the pro-Israel & pro-Palestine camps. That tells you they’re  doing their job.

Much more misinformation and misrepresentation on social media. That’s more of an issue than the “socialist” BBC.

More from the UN again today. Shouldn’t they be focusing on other wars in Africa ? Bloody socialists.
 

UN human rights office: Israel’s continued restrictions on Gaza aid 'may amount to use of starvation as method of war'

The UN human rights office said on Tuesday that Israel’s restrictions on the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza could amount to a war crime.

“The extent of Israel’s continued restrictions on entry of aid into Gaza, together with the manner in which it continues to conduct hostilities, may amount to the use of starvation as a method of war, which is a war crime,” Reuters reports UN human rights office spokesperson Jeremy Laurence said.
