In a report from the Daily Mail comes a very serious claim in which the respected Simon Wiesenthal Center ranked the BBC just behind the Hamas in Antisemitism!
- The Simon Wiesenthal Center named the Corporation number 3 on the list
- The head of the center said the BBC had repeatedly been guilty of anti-semitism
- Rabbi Marvin Hier highlighted reporting of an anti-semitic attack in London
The BBC has been branded anti-semitic by one of the world’s most respected Jewish organisations.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center –named after the famed Nazi-hunter – has placed the BBC at No 3 on its annual ‘Global Antisemitism Top Ten’ list.
Last night, Rabbi Marvin Hier, head of the centre, told The Mail On Sunday: ‘People might be surprised to see the BBC on our list but the decision to place the BBC at No 3 came after months of intense debate and discussion.
‘We believe the BBC has been guilty of several incidences of anti-semitism during the past year.
‘People might assume we would put neo-Nazi groups on our list but the BBC is there because when a globally recognised organisation allows antisemitism to creep into its reporting, it makes it all the more insidious and dangerous.
‘People around the world trust the BBC and rely on it for truthful reporting of world events.’
A BBC spokesman said last night: ‘Antisemitism is abhorrent. The BBC strives to serve the Jewish community, and all communities across our country, fairly with accurate and impartial reporting.’
