The BBC backtracks … but just a little

As we noted a few days ago, the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has treated Israel with contempt in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics by refusing to acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state and by posting unflattering pictures as symbols of the country.

Now, it appears the BBC has changed the pictures on Israel’s Olympic page.  But they still haven’t figured out that Jerusalem is the capital city.  While the Israeli Foreign Ministry calls this a “small victory,” I would suggest it’s nothing to get excited about. When a government agency has to demand that a news agency – whose job is to report rather than make the news – treat its country in the same manner as other countries (for example, the Syrian page has pictures of smiling children even as their government butchers civilians by the hundreds), it’s safe to say that the only winners are those who promote a false, anti-Israel narrative about the Middle East.

    There are many of us who call the bbc the Bible Bashing corporation. It is very biased, hails Richard Dawkins as a great thinker and the default position is that evolution and the big bang are facts.

    Isaiah 54 verse 17;says, But in the coming day, no weapon turned against you will succeed. And every one who tells lies in court will be brought to justice. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I , the LORD have spoken! May the LORD be with the People of Israel.

    The British don’t know the I Israeli history. Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish people since 1948 and it always be the state of the jews.

    Yes, the bible does say the whole world will come against Israel.This means the USA too, my country. Four of the largest denominations in America now believe that the church has replaced Israel. How sad! Wake up America!! Read your bible!!

      I pray that our country will wake up before it is too late, the Jews are truly our brothers and sisters and are God’s chosen people, so if people turn their backs on the Jews and Israel, the Lord will turn His back on them.

      Didn’t you know it’s all a conspiracy written by Jewish American. The entire Bible was written in America and are Jewish lies. At least that’s what was told me by a young punk from Jordan. Oh and Jesus is palestian.

    The BBC doesn’t represent the views of the British people. Its known as the Biased Broadcasting Corporation. We know the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, where the God of Israel’s name dwells

    In Isaiah 45:11 The Lord asks us to command Him concerning His sons, the work of His hands and concerning Jerusalem.I want to be one who can cooperate with the desire of God’s heart every day.

    Jerusalem is God’s city. The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.There will be a new Jerusalem. It will be the capital of the New Earth.
    Great Briton, you have fallen so far from grace.

    These people that refuse to acknowledge jerusalem as the capital of Israel need to read the bible. They appear very ignorant in this sense. The unflattering pictures indicate their anti-jewish thoughts. This is very sad !

    It seems like so many years have gone by with the world listening to the Palestinian propaganda so this newsletter is refreshing for sure. Was it Lenin who said something like, ‘Lie to the people often enough and they will believe it’ Anti-semites don’t care if it’s a lie but regular people need to hear more and more of the truth so while this publication is great there should be more sources of information out there.

    God bless!

    Rick.

    This is outrageous! The bible tells us that the whole world will come against Israel and Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone. This is bible prophecy happening people! I love Israel and will continue to pray for peace in Jerusalem.

      I agree with Darrell, that what they need continuning to pray for peace in Jerusalem. (Psalms 122:6) this is Bible Prophecy is already accurately true also the burdensome stone is in Jerusalem soon but God will gives us power to pray for Jerusalem. The Lord blessing you always! see you in heaven.

    You worship the true and LIVING God and the the world can not stand that. They cater to anything or any God that does not interfere with their sinful life.

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
