what erikl's paranoia or the fact that the BBC is actually a very good and professional broadcasting organisation.

Wun not you too...

It's funny how people attack me when I bring proof that the BBC is un-balanced, un-proffesional organization (a fact known to many on the internet), calling me a paranoid etc. etc. (a word very favoured here by people who don't have real argument, as I've seen so far), but when they don't agree with the BBC, then the report is bullsh*t etc. rolleyes.gif

Double standards anyone? whistling2.gif tongue.gif

wun, I have not seen much of the BBC as i have only spent about 2 months in the UK, and erikl is not all that paranoid. a lot of the polls and stuff i have seen on the BBC and on the ABC are just ridiculous. they base so much on a minority that it is ridiculous.

btw, I actually think this report is another example of BBC's un-proffesional reporting.
It is very unlikely that 50% of the Britons don't know what Auschwitz
is...
16 years old yungsters maybe... but in the ages of 35? blink.gif
That's absurd!

If they said any other death camp, like treblinka and majdanek, then I might believe it (those are not very famous camps to none eastern-Europeans or Jews), but Auschwitz?

Not likely....

Well take it from someones who has watched the BBC all their life to tell you that it is very good.

No erikl like i have said to you a million times, yes there might have been a biased report towards the palestinians now and again from particular reporters but there are just as many biased reports in favour of isreal.

I watch it every day.

The difference is erikl that whilst i disagreed with the way in which they came to the conclusion of the above report i still recognise that 95% of the time its reporting is excellent.

Its a massive coropration erikl its bound to make mistakes.

Oh unlike isreali media , but i forgot isreal never seems to do anything wrong in your opinion.

i agree erikl. they should know about Auschwitz
. i'm 15 (16 in feb) and i know about Auschwitz, so a 35 year old should. this just shows how ignorant our world really is. sad.gif

On the contrary wun, Israel do a lot of mistakes (you wouldn't believe how much), but when I came here I saw how people bash Israel (Talon was in the climax of spreading that Israel genocides the Palestinians), that if I had brought more bad things about Israel (with the lies spread here back then), I would have felt like I'm collaborating with that mass anti-Israeli propaganda.
But when you come to think about it, I haven't seen you or Talon writting anything bad about Scotalnd either whistling2.gif...

If you want to see and ear bad things about Israel, just watch some of youre TV.
As they do that so much, I see the only job I have is to try and give people another side, a positive side, about my country.

OK, wun, so here's some bad things in my opinion about my country:

I hate the recent corruption which spreaded in our rulling government.

I think Sharon's plan is a stupid one, which only gives Hamas a back wind.

I'm against the economic reforms done by Netanyahu, our Treasury Minister, because it is ultra-capitalist, very Tacherist reforms (and go against all the ideals of the Likud party, btw. In Israel, the left is associated with the rich elites, while the right wing is associated with the weak society and is more socialist... I know it sounds strange, but that's Israeli politics rolleyes.gif).

I also hate the fact that the religious parties are now going to enter the coalition because the secularist Shinui (which won 15 mandates out of 120 last elections, becomming the third largest party in the Israeli parliament) only cares for winning seats in the parliament and has done almost nothing from what it promised), and now the Orthodox Shas party will steal our money again disgust.gif....

So here are some of my complaints about my country.
Satisfied? rolleyes.gif

How can you justify a statement like this when you have spent so little time over here? You have admitted you hardly watched the BBC. Are you talking about the BBC News or the BBC in general?? Polls and 'stuff' what is stuff?

lol i love how many people dont kno anything about history. its just...VERY messed up.

I can safely say I know more than almost everyone at my school about the 1st and 2nd World War..and teachers who just read stuff from the book arent helping..

Pretty sad when students have to start correcting the teacher
