I dislike the BBC, as I have shown here, here and here. I dislike their arrogance, I dislike their cheerleading for the Establishment, I dislike their protection of predatory paedophiles and refusal to apologise for protecting said paedophiles for decades and I dislike the poll tax that funds this incompetent and corrupt bureaucracy. But most of all I dislike the way they have pushed identity politics for the past three decades and their ongoing refusal to hold insanely right-wing Islamists to the same standards as everyone else when they spout vile misogyny, homophobia and anti-Semitism. You can imagine my astonishment to read an article on the BBC’s website entitled “Copenhagen imam accused of calling for killing of Jews.”
The reason for my astonishment is the BBC’s ongoing (and one way) love affair with everything Islamic. They will bend over backwards when reporting the latest atrocity to avoid calling the perpetrator a Muslim or an Islamist, even when he has made a video pledging allegiance to ISIS and passersby heard him screaming “Allahu Akbar.” The BBC always makes the racist assumption that everyone from the Middle East, North Africa or South Asia is a Muslim, even when people have come to Britain to escape from oppressive, theocratic regimes. They support the most conservative and backward forms of Islam and use the word “Muslim” as if it is an ethnicity and a synonym for Islam. Anyone who dares to criticise Islam is demonised as a racist and labeled with fascistic, meaningless words.
The report from Copenhagen says that an imam has used an address to call for a caliphate ruled by Sharia law and for a jihad against “the filth of the Zionists” to liberate the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. He also used a hadith to call for the killing of Jews. This is not news to anyone outside Jimmy Savile House. The hadith in question is in the charter of the terrorist group Hamas (another group beloved by the BBC), an organisation whose anti-Semitism is so extreme that they still make use of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to justify their hatred of Jews. The fact that the anti-Semitism that is rampant amongst Islamists is news to the BBC tells us one of two things; either the BBC is not the “word class news organisation” it claims to be or they are deliberately hiding the repugnant views of one of their favoured victim groups. At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I suspect the latest.
If there is one country that the BBC hates more than America it is Israel. If there is one group of people the BBC hates more than Americans it is Jews – like they use the word “Muslim” as though it is an ethnicity, the BBC uses the word “Jew” when it really means “Israeli” and vice versa. Islamist hatred of Jews is well known. Indeed, anti-Semitism is pretty mainstream in Islam – the first chapter of the Koran, used like the Christian Lord’s Prayer, calls Jews “those who have provoked God’s anger.” In the bizarre world of BBC identity politics, Jewish people are the only ones who are not able to claim victim status.
This obsession by both the BBC and their Islamist friends has always mystified me. Let’s actually look at some figures to get this obsession into perspective. There are allegedly 1.6 billion Muslims in the world today and 16 million Jewish people, about half of whom live in Israel – an advantage to Muslims of 100 to 1. The maniacal Jew-haters of Iran (to take one example) rule a country of 636,374 square miles, eighty times the size of Israel (8,019 square miles). And Iran is only one of fifty plus Islamic countries! In any sane world (obviously the environment at Jimmy Savile House is not one I would call sane) it would be the Jews who would be considered a beleaguered minority.
So, kudos to the BBC for reporting these hate-filled ravings from Copenhagen. But it will take a lot more to balance to endless supply of pro-Islamist nonsense pumped out by this repellant and institutionally anti-Semitic organisation.
