Manufactured Destruction

CAMERA has the goods on the BBC, which claimed in a video report that the family home of the terrorist that murdered eight students and wounded nine more last week was destroyed in retaliation by the Israelis.

It never happened.

For now, the house still stands, prompting CAMERA to wonder why BBC reporter Nick Miles would report a false demolition in a voiceover, and why the BBC would air a videoclip without properly vetting it.

This should be a career-ender for someone (or someones) if the BBC cares about their reputation as a legitimate news source.

Clearly, the BBC is working with the terrorists. The Brits are notorious anti-Semites.

Last time I looked American antisemitism was rising faster compared to British.

Recent studies prove this.

"if the BBC cares about their reputation as a legitimate news source."


That's a good one.
