BBC audiences are constantly presented with the Israeli perspective on events, while being kept in the dark about Israel’s atrocities committed against the Palestinians.
Unbalanced reporting from a public broadcaster must be challenged.
Well-informed public opinion is vital to the Palestinian cause, and the BBC plays a major role in forming public opinion.
The BBC is funded through public money and enjoys a semi-monopoly on broadcast news coverage.
Once its online content is included, the broadcast regulator Ofcom estimates that the BBC enjoys 70% of the UK share
of viewing of national and international news. As such, it has a unique responsibility, enshrined in the BBC Charter,
to provide news that is balanced, fair and accurate. In the case of its coverage of Palestine and Israel, this is not the case.
