THE BBC AND OLD WIVES TALES

It's bad enough that released BBC correspondent Alan Johnston spent his early days of freedom after Hamas secured his release from the clutches of the Army of Islam cuddling up to the Hamas leadership but now the Beeb is giving the thumbs up to viscious anti-Semitic lies on its own website.

According to Harry's Place:

BBC Radio 5 Live message board moderators have refused to remove a posting from the 5 Live website, which states that

"Zionism is a racist ideology where jews are given supremacy over all other races and faiths.

This is found in the Talmud. There is a law called Baba Mezia which allows jews to lie as long as its to non-jews. many pro jewish supporters will cringe at this being exposed because they know it exists, yet they keep quiet about it, hey frip, jla and co The Law of Baba Mezia!! Tsk tsk tsk!

Its in the Talmud."

When I brought the mailing to the attention of the moderator, "The BBC Communities Team" emailed back, stating

"we have decided that it does not contravene the House Rules and are going to leave it on site".

I'm not an expert on the Talmud but I would suggest to the BBC that it has been exposed again for sanctioning racist tripe against Jews. There is no such thing as The Law of Baba Mezia. In my book, he's probably referring to a "Bubbe meiseh" which tranlates into "a grandmother's story" - or an old wive's tale. An example of an old wive's tale is:-

The BBC reports news on Israel fairly and objectively.

N
ow, I wonder if it were possible that the BBC would ever allow this on its website:.

"Islam is a racist ideology where Muslims are given supremacy over all other races and faiths. This is found in the Koran. There is a law called taqiyya which allows Muslims to lie as long as its to non-Muslims."

Tsk, tsk!!!

The bastard who moderates the BBC boards was, like most of his type, simply lazy.
