“The Palestinians want their state to include all land captured by Israel in 1967, but some 500,000 Jews now live in more than 200 settlements and outposts in the West Bank – including East Jerusalem.”

In addition, the BBC continues to use its standard ‘international law’ insert which breaches editorial guidelines on impartiality by failing to inform audiences of the existence of alternative legal opinions.


“The settlements are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.”

Once again the organization obliged to build a “global understanding of international issues” actually does more to prevent audience understanding than to enhance it by failing to tell the story accurately and impartially, thus suffocating any of the “breadth of perspective” to which it is committed.
