Around 2,000 protesters converged upon Broadcasting House to demonstrate against the corporation's decision NOT to broadcast a charity appeal.
The BBC was in crisis last night as politicians including government ministers, religious leaders and senior members of its own staff condemned the decision not to broadcast a charity appeal to help the stricken people of Gaza rebuild their homes.
The corporation's director general, Mark Thompson, was left isolated as rival broadcasters ITV and Channel 4 agreed to put out the plea for aid made jointly by 13 British charities.
BBCs Mark Thompson exposed
The BBC has decided the broadcast of the appeal might be seen as evidence of bias on a highly sensitive political issue.
The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, has accused the broadcaster of "taking sides". He said yesterday "This is not a row about impartiality but rather about humanity".
As most would by now be aware, the broadcasting giant, BBC once believed 'impartial' has been exposed as nothing more than a propaganda arm.
The BBC has refused to air appeals for donations for Gazans, thus breaking long-standing tradition and agreements. Other UK broadcasters immediately followed suit, including Ruppert Murdoch's - Sky TV.
Millions of people sickened by the Palestinian Holocaust and the sufferings of civilians in the Gazan Concentration Camps were prevented by the BBC from learning the contact details of Gazan aid.
Israel was simultaneously withholding aid for Gaza and was preventing aid-shipments from reaching Palestinians who had been kept by Israel at near starvation levels for months, PRIOR to Israel's Christmas-period slaughter of these helpless victims

Millions of Europeans watched helplessly wanting only to alleviate Palestinian suffering.
The BBC however, held firm and refused to air Gazan Aid details.
This of course, after the BBC had for weeks presented news BIASED in ISRAEL's FAVOUR!
....and now THIS:

'Once an emblem of Britishness, the BBC is now branded around the world – and the Muslim world – as an arm of Israeli propaganda'

I think it is time to withold the TV licence payments until the BBC airs the appeal.
