The mainstream media cannot be trusted. It is clearly aligned with malevolent forces. Unfortunately, it still wields disproportionate power and influence.
“BBC to Bennett: We don’t want to see victims of terrorism,” BBC, November 18, 2014:
Interviewer refuses to allow economy minister to show photograph of victims of the terrorist attack at Jerusalem synagogue.
A BBC interviewer refused to allow Economy Minister Naftali Bennett to show a photograph of victims of the terrorist attack in Jerusalem in an interview Tuesday morning.
Bennett appeared on BBC World News after a Palestinian spokesman, who claimed that Jews were murdering Palestinians in Jerusalem.
The Bayit Yehudi leader responded: “The fact is that [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] himself incites and tells the Arabs ‘take arms and fight the Jews.'”
Bennett’s comments echoed earlier remarks calling Abbas one of the biggest terrorists of the Palestinian people and blaming him for the bloodshed.
Then, Bennett lifted a photo of the scene of the terrorist attack, depicting a man in a tallit lying face down on the floor of a synagogue.
“You know, this individual came this morning to pray,” Bennett said, pointing at the man in the picture.
“We don’t want to actually see that picture, if you could take that down,” the interviewer shot back.
Bennett continued: “This individual came this morning to pray, just like many Muslims and many Jews went to pray this morning. The Muslims went home safe [sic], but four Jews will never come home again.”
The clip soon made waves on social media, after Bennett shared it.
British journalist Jake Wallis Simons, who has covered Israel extensively for The Telegraph, among other major news sources tweeted: “BBC refuses to show picture of murdered Jewish worshiper. Didn’t have a problem with dead Gazans, I recall.”
