[Last Sunday] TVOne’s “Sunday” programme broadcast the BBC Panorama story “Death in the Med”.
As “Sunday” presenter Cameron Bennet made clear in his intro, this BBC Panorama story gives the Israeli version of the storming of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla on 31 May which left nine civilian aid workers dead and dozens injured.
It’s the old, old story of an aggressor selling the propaganda line that really the victim was to blame for being attacked.
Cameron Bennet asked the question: Will this Israeli version of history sway people? My answer: probably not many.
The Israeli military attack on a humanitarian aid ship on the open sea in the dead of night was so indecent that the world’s majority are lining up against the illegal and immoral siege of Gaza’s 1.5 million people.
If you do come across someone who is swayed by this Israeli propaganda, simply point them to Kia Ora Gaza’s website.
