One of many annoyances about BBC reporting of Israel and Palestine is the phrase "considered to be against international law" to describe the occupation, the settlements, the annexation of lands seized in war, etc.

 

It's not a question of whether it's "considered" illegal  - it fucking is illegal.

The thing with the BBC is that they always try to be seen as impartial and therefore never take a position on anything. I haven’t really made up my mind whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. It would’ve been interesting to see how they reported apartheid SA back then for example.

But surely the law is the law. By all means, call someone an alleged arsonist until they're proven guilty; but don't spread doubt over whether arson is illegal or not.

They would have glorified it just like Thatcher did.

It’s a bad thing.  When they discuss climate change they have a denier to provide ‘balance’. That’s stupid.

Too close to call in the election apparently. Don’t know why. 

 

Gantz has headed a campaign squarely focused on Netanyahu’s divisive politics and personal scandals, presenting himself as a clean and responsible alternative.



To win support from Israeli rightwingers and settlers, both men have attempted to sell the promise of an expansionist Israel that extends its borders deep into Palestinian territory.

Netanyahu vowed last week to declare up to a third of the occupied West Bank as part of Israel if he was re-elected and Gantz swiftly accused his political opponent of stealing his idea.

Looks like a bit of a nightmare for either side to form a coalition as the two main parties have 32/31 but the third party will not support either unless Netanyahu & Gantz go into a coalition together. Reported as a massive smack in the face for Netanyahu as he only really called the election to try to get a big enough majority to allow him to give himself immunity against the corruption charges he is facing and it looks as if he will almost certainly not be the new premier however the coalitions work out.

Wow. And I imagine it won't be in normal prison conditions. He will probably get put up in a nice hotel and just told to stay out of the way of people for a month.

    • The main part was the news reports of the vaccine effectiveness percentages dropping, so even though you can't read it all the percentages can still be seen mostly.
    • No it wasn't meant to be. If enough supermarkets stopped allowing unvaxxed to get food and there's people that are isolated with no contacts they could end up starving.   Maybe some older people that don't use the internet and decide to go to a food bank or something, until they get so depressed from it that they stop going as much because they no longer see the point in life when they're cut off from being able to go anywhere without being vaxxed. Depression starts getting worse, trips to the food bank get rarer, nobody is checking on them, it's not much of a step from there.   Are there several things the person could've done to avoid things getting that bad? Of course, but there's probably going to be some people that don't do those things for various reasons. Ill health, physically and/or mentally being one.   Cases like that could be extremely rare if they happened, but one person ending up seriously ill or dead because they're not allowed to use a supermarket is one too many. And no, "get vaxxed" isn't the answer to that scenario. There's still choice right? Because if the choice is gone then we have fascism.   I don't care how stupid you think this is, if food can't be bought from supermarkets then rare cases could happen.   I was also being extreme because I responding to you saying that people serving unvaxxed was fascism. I didn't start posting about the issue saying people were going to starve to death.

Face paint too.
