£145.50 – no, it’s not the current GDP of the UK, it is what a UK citizen must legally hand over to the government every year in order to watch a television inside their own premises. Failure to do this can result in a heavy fine and even imprisonment. Bear in mind that this “license” fee is ONLY for the British Broadcasting Company – it funds nothing else!
Actually that’s not strictly true – it helps to fund genocide also. You see, Sir Roger Carr, added to the board of the BBC trust as vice-chairman in March 2015, is the chairman of the company BAE Systems, which manufacture war toys for Saudi Arabia, who used them to bomb Doctors Without Borders hospitals across Yemen. According to BAE systems, “weapons sales encourage peace”, and in 2005 they acquired United Defence – a move which added the M2/M3 Bradley to their line of death gadgets.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that, on September 16th, 2016, BBC viewers saw their “licence” money well spent. The director of the regular 11pm programme “Newsnight” thought it was a good idea to give a representative of al-Qaeda a platform to call for Jihad. This meant that the BBC’s weekly audience of 348 million people can further familiarise themselves with terms like “Kuffar” and “Rafida” whilst practicing beheadings on chickens.
Key quotes from the interview are:
“Jabhat Fatah al-Sham is part of Syrian society. It is deeply embedded and cannot be singled out in any way. America and Russia know it.”
“9/11 happened 15 years ago and is completely irrelevant to Syria today. Would you ask Obama to be responsible for Japan?”
“Our bond with revolutionary forces is based on faith in Islam and that cannot be broken.”
“We coordinate with all groups and we have always done that since the beginning and it’s only getting stronger.”
“Jabhat Fatah al-Sham has been at the forefront of every significant battle and this is something no one can deny.”
“America is doing a fine job to set itself up alongside Assad, Iran, and Russia against the Syrian people.”
“Jabhat Fatah al-Sham’s proposed project is in agreement with the general aspirations of all muslims in Syria.”
Ever since Jabhat al-Nusra rebranded itself as “Jabhat Fatah al-Sham”, there has been a shift in the way in which they are presented to the western world by the mainstream media. Suddenly, because they claimed to have “disengaged with al-Qaeda“, they have become more “moderate” and ‘acceptable’ in the eyes of the tax payers in the western world. This shift in portrayal was indeed pre-prepared by the most notorious names in media, and in particular by Rupert Murdoch, who was very quick to interview al-Qaeda as soon as the flag, constitution, and name was changed. Unfortunately for the Jihadists, their organisation can be called “the Disneyland fan club” and it would still be a terrorist organisation. The name can change, but the ideology does not.
It would appear that the western media is attempting to depict Jabhat Fatah al-Sham as part of the “Syrian revolution”, who are unhappy with Assad’s governance, and want a fairer and balanced society. Whilst this is highly alarming, to say the least, it is unfortunately working, as we saw in London on September 17th in central London: 20,000 paid extras parading down the streets with “Free Syrian Army” flags, exhibiting symptoms of chronic, incurable Liberalism.
In reality, these strategic moves by the BBC and Sky News are merely attempts at covering their tracks, so that after the war, the UK cannot be accused of aiding Al Qaeda, but merely disgruntled Syrians who wanted Democracy US-style. The only way this can work is if the British public let it work, by refusing to simply connect the dots and call a spade a spade.
This is not the first time “Newsnight” has cheer-leaded terrorism – the author of this article has watched many hours of such agitprop, ranging from Russia-bashing, “Gaddafi is a tyrant”, and “Saddam must go”. But a leopard doesn’t change its spots. The video below serves as a reminder that when it comes to the BBC, propaganda is its bread and butter:
