Where was this originally broadcast?

Al Jezera? Hardly a broadcaster renown for it's impartiality. If anything, they are even worse than Fox!!!!

The BBC is OBLIGED to be impartial. It cannot get involved in things like this. If it did, it would have it's bollocks nailed to the floor by the broadcasting regulators.

This is a humanitarian crisis like Darfur. Any civic-minded organization, which I assume BBC is, is obligated to help humanitarian disasters.

This is a not a political issue and does not involve taking sides. It's about helping thousands of wounded people and millions displaced, It's helping "Katrina" victims but on a much larger scale.

By BBC not participating, it provers the power of Israel is not just over George Bush, the US Congress and America but also over the UK.

By the way, Lone, thanks for giving me an idea for my nect Chimpplanet post.

It's too bad that the only news you trust if FOX News and that any other news is tainted. The only way you can really learn what's going on in the world is by reading both sides.

We went through 8 years of propaganda, one-sided news in this country. It's about time Americans learn what's really going on in this world.

I didn't say that I trusted Fox news, quite the reverse.

By the way, look at this recent post here:
Al-Jazeera coverage of Gaza widely watched.

It seems Al-Jazeera was the only one reporting from the battle field. Without them, we would probably never know that hundreds of children were slaughtered by the Israeli SS.
