Hundreds protest against ‘BBC pro-Israel bias’ of Gaza coverage in cities across the UK
More than 3,700 people signed up on Facebook to join the demonstration at Media City in Manchester on Saturday and similar events have also drawn crowds outside the BBC’s London headquarters.

On Tuesday, protesters presented an open letter from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) and other groups to the Director General outside Broadcasting House.

It claimed news coverage was “devoid of context or background” about the previous Israeli occupation of Gaza.

“We would like to remind you that Gaza has no army, air force, or navy, while Israel possess one of the strongest militaries in the world,” it continued.

“When you portray the occupier as the victim, and the occupied as the aggressor, we would like to remind you that resistance to occupation is a right under international law.”



More than 200 Palestinians have been killed since the start of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge earlier this month.

The UN estimates that 77 per cent of those killed have been civilians, including many children, but Israel has blamed Hamas for allegedly concealing rocket launchers and military equipment in residential buildings, schools and mosques.

In Liverpool, protesters gathered outside the BBC Radio Merseyside on Tuesday and in Manchester, a “Stop the Bombing of Gaza” event was held.

A vigil in memory of Palestinian casualties was held in Newcastle and numerous protests calling for an immediate ceasefire from the Israeli military have been held in recent weeks across the UK.

According to the Stop the War Coalition, more demonstrations against BBC coverage and the conflict in general are planned over the coming days in Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Worcester.

A BBC News spokesman said the organisation was reporting “widely and extensively across TV, radio and online, on many different aspects of this ongoing and complex conflict”.

“Our role is to explain what is happening and why, and we endeavour to reflect a range of voices, amid deeply held views,” he added.

“We are committed to continuing to report and analyse sometimes fast moving events in an accurate, fair and balanced way.”

Gaza is a concentration camp, and it’s an American delusion not to recognize that — Weschler
I know, I know, and I am bone tired of being told it, when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is plenty of blame to go around, but by this point after coming on almost 50 years of Israeli stemwinding and procrastinatory obfuscation, I’d put the proportionate distribution of blame at about the same level as the mortality figures—which is, where are we today (what with Wednesday morning’s four children killed while out playing on a Gaza beach)? What, 280 to 2?

For the single overriding fact defining the Israeli-Palestinian impasse at this point is that if the Palestinians are quiescent and not engaged in any overt rebellion, the Israelis (and here I am speaking of the vast majority of the population who somehow go along with the antics of their leaders, year after year) manage to tell themselves that things are fine and there’s no urgent need to address the situation; and if, as a result, the endlessly put-upon Palestinians do finally rise up in any sort of armed resistance (rocks to rockets), the same Israelis exasperate, “How are we supposed to negotiate with monsters like this?” A wonderfully convenient formula, since it allows the Israelis to go blithely on, systematically stealing Palestinian land in the West Bank, and continuing to confine 1.8 million Gazans within what might well be described as a concentration camp.

Note, incidentally, I say “concentration camp” and not “death camp.” I am not comparing Gaza to Auschwitz-Birkenau, but one cannot help but liken the conditions today in Gaza to the sorts of conditions once faced by Japanese-Americans during World War II, or the Boers in South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War, or the black South Africans years later in such besieged townships as Soweto, or for that matter Jews and gays and gypsies at Dachau and Theresienstadt in the years before the Nazis themselves settled on their Final Solution.

And it is quite simply massively self-serving delusion that Israelis (and their enablers and abettors here in America, among whom incidentally I count a steadily declining number of American Jews) refuse to recognize that fact.

Murdered by Israel/USA – Two little Angels Killed by the Devil
These two countries work as one when it comes to spreading death and evil on this planet. Each one supporting the other, both countries under the illusion that they are better than the rest of the world and the deaths of innocent children around the world do not matter.

Two cold blooded heartless countries who have declared themselves leaders of the world with the right to kill how ever many innocent people as they want and expect to get away with it.


Hassan’s 2 kids Saji and Kenan who got killed today in ‪Gaza‬ along with their pregnant mom. The photo was taken in ‪‎Oxford‬ last year.

Just 2 more of the senseless murders of the Israelis. Hitler seems like a saint compared to Benjamin Netanyahu, who continues to make his people the most hated in the world.

They call themselves the “chosen ones”. They must be chosen by the Devil, as no God would sanction such murders. The world is disgusted by the behaviour of these people.

French Demonstrators Show Their Hatred Towards Israel
Moderators of French websites have been overwhelmed by a storm of hatred over the Israeli incursion into Gaza. The latest conflict has triggered outbreaks of violence in France between the country’s Jewish and Muslim populations.

While Parisian protests over Israel’s operation in Gaza descend into violence and clashes, the internet has seen an explosion of hate speech related to the conflict. French law bans racist, anti-Semitic or discriminatory messages, but moderators have been hard-pressed to keep up with the rise in hateful comments.

Representatives from companies that monitor online content told AFP that they normally block 25 to 40 percent of comments, but since the Israeli incursion this statistic has shot up to up to 95 percent. They say the nature of the online hate comments is very specific to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as both parties seek to monopolize websites with their hate messages.

“On the pro-Palestinian side, identical messages are posted on dozens of sites. On the pro-Israeli side, there are fewer messages but they are better organized,” said Jeremie Mani, head of Madagascar-based company Netino that trawls through millions of comments every month. “This sickening content is peculiar to this conflict. The war in Syria does not trigger these kinds of comments.”

Apparently the comments are not just restricted to subjects related to the conflict. Mani said offense dialogue on the issue even cropped up in an article about the Tour de France and in another about salmon fishing.

“Without any moderation, these hate messages would invade everything, particularly as they quickly breed followers,” he said. Media sites are not the only ones targeted by hate campaigns, public figures social media profiles have also been hijacked by commentators to spread hate speech.

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza entered its thirteenth day on Monday as the death toll topped 500, Palestinian medics told Reuters on Monday.

The latest incursion into Palestinian territory has sparked violent protests in France both for and against the operation. Paris witnessed some of the worst violence of the weekend as over ten thousand people took to the streets in protest of a ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations.

Protesters hurled stones and bottles at police who responded with tear gas and made at least 32 arrests. Previous protests saw attacks on Synagogues and Jewish-run businesses prompting the government ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations.

In response to the weekend’s unrest the French government has said it will take measures to crack down on anti-Semitism. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said that attacks on businesses known to be run by Jews was unacceptable and would be punished.

“It is unacceptable to target synagogues or shops simply because they are managed by Jews,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters on Monday.

Perverted truth: How rebel mourning MH17 victims was turned into looter with trophy
Twitter is quick, but too quick sometimes – recently it burst with photos of an evil Ukrainian militiaman who took a teddy bear from the victim of Malaysia plane crash as a trophy. But the full video shows he was just paying the tribute to the dead. “Pro Russian holds up stuffed toy like trophy. Mr @PutinRF_Eng, are you proud of your compatriots?” wrote a twitter user John Gosling. A photo signed “pro-Russian fighter holds up a toy found among the debris at the crash site of MH17”has been used by such major media outlets as the BBC and NBC. Some outlets went as far as to say that ‘pro-Russian fighters’ were collecting the belongings of passengers of the doomed Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight.

is it real or fraud
Ineed your assistance as regarding some information in Syria.
I applied for a loan with one Riyad Isa and we asked to meet with a lawyer as I don't have collateral for the amount. I was sent a lawyers contact which is
Law Office of Ghazi S Ghazzi,
Salhieh - Asia Clothes Building,
Damascus, Syria
Phone: +963 11 222 9798
On contacting this lawyer, i was told that I have to buy a surety bond which will cost me $20,000Here is the mail I received below.
We appreciate your correspondence with us here at Law Office of Ghazi
S Ghazzi, Damascus, Syria. We are poised to give you the best service
The Debt financing agreement is ready and also the surety bond documents.
Surety bonds ensure that returns on investment are paid according to
contract, which is critical for financing on international
transactions where landed properties cannot be used.  Entrepreneurs
purchase them when negotiating a loan, but don’t worry if you don’tknow much about them. As expert surety negotiation specialists, we are
here just for you.
We decided to work with Syria General Insurance Company, as you get
the lowest rate available without any additional brokerage fees.
Their bond rates typically fall below 2%. We can therefore say that
they offer the best rates in the market.
We have discussed with Syria General Insurance Company about your
transaction and they have informed us that the cost of the premium to
purchase the surety bond to cover the financing of your loan is
US$20,000 only.Each bond that’s issued binds three entities together.
    * The obligee is the Investor requiring the bond to ensure the
entrepreneur pays the necessary returns appropriately.
    * The principal is the entrepreneur who purchases the bond as a
guarantee that loan will be re-paid.
    * The surety is the underwriter that issues the bond, thus
guaranteeing that loan will be re-paid.
If there is a claim on the bond due to nonpayment or other contractual
breech, the Investor files a claim on the bond. If the claim is found
to be valid, the surety that issued the bond will make sure the
wronged party is compensated. Since the bonding process effectively
brings a neutral third party in to execute the agreement, it provides
a certain measure of reassurance to all involved with a project —
particularly projects that involve a great deal of money.
You are to send the initial premium fees immediately to purchase the
bond and to expedite the rest of the process including due diligence,
prequalification, underwriting and bond execution.
Once your payment of the premium fees is confirmed by wire transfer in
the account provided by the Surety (SGIC),The bond will be executed
and The Investor will  sign the debt agreement and make a wire transfer of the Investment to the Account information provided by you
within 48 hours of the confirmation.
Please confirm your readiness to proceed with the necessary
obligations so that we can provide you with the relevant documents to
move forward.
Get back to me accordingly.
Yours Sincerely,
Dr. Ghazi S. Ghazzi
Principal Partner
Law Office of Ghazi S Ghazzi

i always look into the complains of Nigerians in the but i always felt dissapionted. some complains are there for more than 2years without any body bothering to attend to them. the site was created to assist and solve problems of every Nigerians Abroad, why are they now neglecting their Duties, are the embassies running away from their duty. i query them in respect manner. it is a good initiative to create a site like this, which any Nigerian all over the world facing one issue or the other, can reach to his or her authority. but it is like the site is now turned into fun or a chat room.
