Here is the (real) news by Melanie Phillips
And now for some news from civilised BritainOn BBC Radio’s Any Questions on Friday evening, audience questioner Stephen Bedford asked:
‘Despite all the foreign aid and support, Israel has spectacularly failed to get on with its neighbours. Does Israel deserve a future?’
So with Israel having faced existential attack from the Arab and Muslim world for the six decades of its existence, and having been under intensive rocket, missile and human bomb attack from them for more than a decade, the BBC Any Questions production team selected as the audience question to launch its discussion of the Gaza war whether Israel actually deserved to exist at all.
It is Israel’s neighbors that refuse to get along with Israel. It is Israel’s savage neighbors that keep starting wars and trying to massacre its people and wipe Israel out. But according to the BBC’s repugnant Stephen Bedford, Israel is the one who fails to get along with its neighbors. Such a twisted, depraved perspective of the Middle East is staggering. What has gone wrong with this person’s brain functioning? If this is the typical view of Brits, perhaps the question should be asked is whether Britain deserves a future.
