Ahh - the lobby program.
Lots of people spent time to discover that there are lobbies in the UK - one would assume a few minutes with Google would suffice (after all, all the info is available online), but auntie B is very generous when it comes to trying to dig up dirt on Israel. I found it interesting that an "investigation" is defending the BBC's decision to keep the Balen report secret.

btw - Uncle Max's Avatar of a gorgeous, smart & loving Israeli(born) girl next to a killer is quite appropriate for this thread ;-)
Israel has nothing to fear from the truth, right? No matter how distorted the reporting can be. Glad you recognised the avatar. Some of my best friends are Human.

Ps, you forgot to mention the bottle of Nardini Grappa...

You are a credit to your race, the human race.

Distorted reporting is written all over the Guardian & Beeb (see Orla G etc)

I fly the flag for the BBC, and even have Bowen's 1967 book on my shelf (poorly written it is, too) but have to say there are massive distortions made by *some* reporters. I fancy that Katya Adler, though...

Re: Israel - Palestine - Part 2

The BBC has a unique position - It can be free to report (almost) without political or financial pressure. Shame it looks like a left wing fox news when it comes to Israel.


1967 - see if you can dig up Michael oren's book.

In the US fox would have us believe that anything that is not Fox is socialist- reds under the bed. They forget that Tony Blair was Labour and labour is supposed to be socialist. They never said and here is a clip of president Bush in amicable discussions with the socialist leader of Great Britain. Even when Obama was being elected people would vehemently defend him if anyone said he had socialist sympathies. You can't say a left-wing Fox News it is a contradictory anathema.

Sorry Casto - didn't recognise you in Civvies. But as you learned to fly Ryanair, being an Israel fan is much easier task (food is much better, the service - not yet). At least Easy J are flying to TLV !

I understand your attempt at irony but it doesn't work.
The concept of left-wing Fox news just doesn't work, it is a blunt simile. I suppose it's just a neo-con Israeli comparison that only the likes of you and Castro 'get'. I mean give me an equivalent channel to Fox News on the Left.......

How you, Castro, have the chutzpah to post this song-which states that you will fight any enemy for that which is promised to you, after all your talk of defending human rights, beggars belief. Is that your attempt at irony?

Here is one of the comments that go with that video- they are all pretty much the same.

I'm afraid we don't get to choose our heroes hoppy, I must take Monsieur Gainsbourg warts and all In any case the last thing the net needs is another angry young man, a bit of humour and yes, a touch of irony goes a lot further.



Ahh.. genius!

Re: Israel - Palestine - Part 2

From the same source:

"Israeli officials have said they are working with their Palestinian counterparts to resolve the issue. "

I'm not sure focusing on isolated issues brings much to the debate. It's unlikely the stadium will not be built.

Of course it will be built, Israel has run out of high value bombing targets

Why would TLV welcome be painful ? at the very least - TLV security personnel are much better trained than LHR...

along time i didn't coming to the forum but it was a nice one now , to see this subject about palestine and israel ...


well i'm surprise about what i hear here , just some or many people they write as they don't know any thing about this world ,, and i must say that who don't know about palestine and israel and the palestinian right it's better to them to read the history from a fair resource then he or she can come here to talk about seriously not stubidly as i read ..

i'm palestinian and i was befor 2 years in palestin living there and i'm now in switzerland because of the israelian ...

this land not for muslim or jewish or christian .. it is for palestinian people , befor 1948 there were muslim and jewish and christian living there ,, but what happened is that ,,, zionist bring all jewish from all around the world and put them there ,, and now they say it's our land

i live there there is no problem any problem betwen christian and muslim ,, it is just between zionest and us ...

israel not exisit befor and it exisit because of england and because the jewish rule all the world for sorry ,, no one can say no for them ,, and that is not my opinion only , it's all free people even from europe and america , i met a lot they said so when they came and saw the reality in palestine ...

all west ountry they are afriad from them and for sorry arab country they are afriad from west country .. and all other country like iran and so they play in palestinian to have a benfit of this ...

palestinian are killed evry day and a lot of mascre happen and no one can do any thing ,,

i'm here in switzerland because the israilian band me out ,, why ? just because i was in my univercity support palestinian right in peace way ...

huh ,, this world for sorry need strong only and i wish there is some one here understand me ,, palestinian they are looking for fredom wich is clear like sun .. but all the world make him slef as he didn't see

i have alot and a lot to say ..

i wish from any one here to go and watch tv and read the right history and go to the united nation descion which are in freez ,, why becuase israel the good child of amerika ... at least go and read an know the truth and come then write here

thanx alot for all , and soorry for this long paragraf ..[/QUOTE]
