Is it good for the Jews? Don't report it.

The sight of 40,000 people marching through London and filling Trafalgar Square to salute Israel’s 60th anniversary wasn’t considered news worth reporting in the British media.

Even when it included many Christian and other faith groups and special appearances by a cabinet minister and London's best loved talk-radio host.

On any other quiet Sunday, there is no doubt that one Palestinian child breaking a leg in Gaza would have shot straight into the BBC’s evening news.

This is because the British media have this extreme difficulty about reporting anything good about the Jewish state.

They are much more comfortable with blame.

That’s why we at least made the traffic reports.
