British Parliament reports sharp rise in antisemitism. What responsiblity does the media bear?

Britain's The Independent's cover-story by known anti-Zionist, Robert Fisk, is an example of how the media has fueled anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism in Britain and western Europe.

Today, even Parliament had to confront it. We feature it and further background articles on the subject.

Report on BBC Anti-Israel Bias to be released
The BBC will appeal to Britain’s High Court to avoid publication of a report that may demonstrate the news agency’s bias against Israel.

Journalist, Tom Gross, comments on the BBC's complicity in distorting British attitudes
INTRODUCTION : This article, “Living in a Bubble,” concerns the BBC’s Mideast coverage. It was written in June 2004, but most of the points it makes remain as relevant and pressing as they were then. In the course of it I also argue that to understand the BBC’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it has to be placed in a wider political and historical context, including:
  • The BBC’s coverage of America, Communism and the Cold War.

  • The BBC’s non-coverage of discrimination against women and gays in the Arab world.

  • The BBC’s lack of proper coverage of the fact Arab militias are responsible for what
    is currently the world’s worst human rights abuse, in the Darfur region of Sudan.

  • The BBC’s lack of concern about other conflicts and disputed territories, such as the “Occupied West Bank of the Sahara” i.e. the 25-year Arab occupation of the Western Sahara (a territory bigger than Britain) which
    has been flooded with Arab settlers by the Moroccan government.

  • The BBC’s eulogizing of Yasser Arafat, whom it described, at the height of his terror
    campaign against Israeli civilians in 2002, as “the stuff of legends”.

  • The BBC’s vast worldwide influence, broadcasting as it does in 43 languages.
