Carol Gould describes a documentary shown on the BBC—owned, but commercial—supported UK Channel Four, the same wonderful people who brought us the pseudo—documentary Death of a President, digitally superimposing President Bush's face on an actor portraying a President Bush who is gunned down in Chicago, for the pornographic gratification of Bush—haters. From Jewish Comment:
Tony Robinson spent two hours sneering in Israel as various extremist groups were filmed. At the end he said it would be an unthinkable disaster if —— horror of horrors —— Jews, and only Jews eventually lived in the Holy Land, 'not to mention their obscenity, the separation wall.' This is an appalling slur. Had he said this about Muslims exclusively inhabiting a country, the Muslim Association of Britain, the Muslim Council of Britain and the Muslim Public Affairs Council UK would have been on Channel Four's back like a shot. C4 is fortunate that the Anglo—Jewish community is small and decorous, and has dignified, non—violent spokespersons like Lord Janner and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
Why did Robinson not show the Gay Pride March that is held in Jerusalem every year without incident, where hundreds of thousands of gays from all over the globe gather in peace? .... Would this occur in any Muslim country?
He said the State was created in 1948 because of the desires of the End Timers/Evangelicals in the USA. He never mentioned the Holocaust or the UN resolution. This is a pernicious slander on the many Jews who have inhabited the Holy Land since the time of Jesus and the tiny remnant of Jews who survived the Nazi torture and death camps. [....]
In a wickedly out—of—context clip Robinson showed a small group of painfully young Israeli soldiers dancing in a circle and singing about the rebuilding of the Temple. If the producers and writers had taken the time to properly research their production they would find that Jewish families for centuries, mostly in walled ghettoes, slums and concentration camps, have sung a song about 'next year in Jerusalem.' This does not mean that Jews across the world, including Israeli soldiers, are about to ram their cars into mosques and churches and demand the building of new Temples wherever they live.
