Over the weekend LM decided to watch a bit of TV and see how the BBC were investing my licence fee money on programming.
Sadly what I found on BBC 2 during prime time viewing on Saturday was El Cid and on Sunday The Long Duel the former a movie about Muslims sadly being forced out of Spain and the latter a film about colonial exploits of the British Raj in North West province of India which is now Pakistan. Notice how the Radio Times describes Yul Brynner's character the Sultan as a "rebel" and "ranting" when in reality all he along with other Indians were doing were correctly attempting to free their country from British colonialists and occupiers.
LM is in no doubt that the BBC under Mark Thompson who married an Israelite has taken a considerable lurch to the right not just in its pro Israel news editorial output or current affairs programmes like Panorama but also across its entertainment schedule.
Unlike in the USA where leading CBS anchor Katie Couric has called for a Muslim Cosby Show here in the UK the BBC seems to be lurching further into the abyss by championing anti Muslim hysteria with programmes that show Muslims negatively and stereotypically as violent. Last week the BBC also showed Raiders of the Lost Ark which is widely acknowledged as portraying Arabs negatively. Raiders was directed by Jewish Director Spielberg and El Cid by Jewish producer Samuel Bronston but of course when oppressed become oppressors complete silence.
While there is little doubt about current BBC agenda headed by a man who married an Israelite, LM believes the concerted and coordinated campaign by right wing neo cons and Israelites is beginning to have an impact. As a result the onus is on Muslims and others who champion anti racism to contact the BBC asking why it is currently aggressively embedding anti Muslim programmes on its channels.
LM will be writing to the BBC complaining and urges others to do the same here on this complaints form
