First, they came for the documentary producers...

Let's get things straight: the situation in Gaza is dire; and the BBC should have broadcast the DEC appeal (although what with the fallout from Brand/Ross, the Queen's exit/entrance, the Blue Peter cat and all the way back to Gilligan, it's clear the corporation's in a permanent damned-if-you-do situation).

That said, the issue has dragged a few nasties from the ideological woodshed. Here's one Josie Hines of Bradford, on Saturday's Any Answers:

"You're not permitted to say anything against Israel. If one says anything, as an individual, one is automatically anti-semitic."

Her point may have carried more weight had it not been prefaced with:

"It is possible that perhaps a large part of the hierarchy of the BBC may well be Zionist Jews who will have a great influence on the situation."

Could there be better news for Gaza right now than the BBC refusing to air the appeal? Now everybody WANTS to see it, instead of flicking over to American Idol on ITV as soon as it comes on.

Hmm. Is it possible that perhaps a large part of the hierarchy of the BBC may well be Palestinian refugees who will have a great influence on the situation...

Uh, maybe not.

Oh, surely not. The Zionist Jews currently have their hands full running the global economy into the ground as part of their covert plan for world domination.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA...!

Sorry, that's Annie S. One day I will work out how to change my sign-in name - sorry Annie R.

It's okay, I was Annie A for a while to avoid confusion but it bugged me somehow. Let's just keep everyone guessing, hey.

I'm trying to think of a joke that has the punchline "Annie-semitism", but it's been a hard day.
