Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Israeli Lobby quails 'Free Press' in America and Europe

“Je Suis Netanyahu”: Again, BBC Caves to Israeli Pressure to Rewrite Headline | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization
A Dark Double Standard
Imagine if Russia, or any other country were caught trying to run a media racketeering scam like this. The western media would be awash with righteous indignation. But when Israel does it? Not even a mention anywhere in the press. So it should come as no surprise how Israel has been able to get away with running a brutal, racist apartheid state for long.
What’s even more ridiculous is the meme we hear so often – that “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East” (no if you are Palestinian, and not if you are western press).
It’s yet another example of the BBC being in violation of its public broadcasting charter by willfully deceiving the public – and not standing up for freedom of the press in Britain. Tragic.

In the early hours of 12 November, approximately two dozen Israeli gunmen, one disguised as a pregnant Palestinian woman, others wearing fake beards, invaded a hospital in Hebron and gunned down a 28-year-old man.
In a rare burst of reporting on an Israeli atrocity, the BBC ran an article on its website headlined: “Israelis shoot dead Palestinian in Hebron hospital raid.”
It was a straightforward headline which summed up the story. But later in the day, a different headline appeared above the report, reading: Israelis in disguise raid Hebron hospital, seizing suspect.”
As is standard practice for the BBC, the amendment was not noted at the bottom of the page, so newcomers to the story would not have known the headline had been altered.
It was spotted, however, by the watchdog Media Lens, which posted a screengrab of the two headlines on its Facebook page, asking: “What happened? Pro-Israeli flak? Bending to pro-Israeli pressure?”
