    Heck, their documentary "Suicide Killers: Everyman", where they carefully cultivated sympathies for suicide bombers or the documentary The Ugly War: Children of Vengeance where the "martyrs" as they called them involved in terrorist activities were painted as indulging in an entirely legitimate activity, heroic even -- well, who could possibly accuse them of any bias?
    Link? Proof?

    'Six Days that Changed the Middle East' was excellent
    The birth of Israel was brilliant and very in favour of Israel from where i was standing. Done for Israel's 60th if i remember
    'Will Israel Bomb Iran?' was another, is that now going to be called anti israel? How about BBC's documentary on Israel's Nuclear arsenal. I call that good programmes and informing the public.

    BBC NEWS | Special Reports | Israel at 60

    Ooh, i can just see the hatred BBC has for Israel

    I read a comment the other day that people with blond or red hair do not belong in the middle east.

    It was biased.

    Does that have any relevance to the topic at hand?

    It is relevent to your comment about stupidity. Had you not accused me of such, I obviously would not have responded with such a comment.

    But it doesn't always maintain the rules.

    Israeli soldiers are human beings before being soldiers and as in every group of humans there are those who are ruthless fanatics and others who are humane and reasonable.

    Having been exposed to Israeli occupation for many years, I have seen both sides of the IDF.

    I have seen the soldiers who kept women, children and elderly people waiting for long hours on checkpoints under the blazing sun for no reason at all, while they sipped Coca Cola and blasted the Rolling Stones from their small radios. I have also seen the young soldier who was barely 18 telling me "I don't know what I'm doing here" while I tried to comfort him.

    I have seen IDF soldiers shooting at children who were throwing rocks at them and I have seen those who have carried children to safety.

    There are some acts of breaking the rules that are just isolated cases but there are others that are unconvetional war tactics that the IDF is obliged to use in order to fight a guerilla.

    I have also been arrested and interrogated by the IDF for being in the wrong place as a war photographer. I was treated well because I worked for the press but I cannot say the same about the dozens of prisoners that I could see from the window of my prison who had been left in the sun for hours and hours, hands tied to their backs with dusty potato sacks over their heads.
