So the other day I was listening to BBC World News on NPR and discovered that there was a controversy concerning a fund raising appeal for residents of Gaza. The appeal would seek to raise humanitarian aid for homeless and children in Gaza as I understand it.
From what I heard (on BBC) is that BBC had permitted the same type of fund raising in the past for Darfur and Sudan. The question was: why not now for Gaza? The way it was presented on the BBC gave one the impression that perhaps there was a double standard when things involved Israel and Palestine.
Oh yeah, I got about half way through the above paragraph and the Internet stopped completely. All better now though, about four hours later.
