BBC's Gaza Bias Mocked In Israel

The BBC's endless diet of pro-Hamas bias hasn't gone unnoticed in Israel, with the popular Israeli comedy show 'Eretz Nehederet' (A wonderful country) delighting viewers with its satire of the corporation's Gaza coverage. 

As Operation Cast Lead enters its third week and calls from around the world denouncing Israel and its actions growing stronger, many Israelis see the anti-Israel BBC bias as part of the on-line battle for hearts and minds and an excuse to vent anti-semitism.

A fierce battle rages on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, blogs and forums and in the Main stream media but Israel has been fighting back with its own Hasbara (explanation), including this from 'Eretz Nehederet'.

UPDATE 21.20: The Israeli cabinet has announced a unilateral 10-day cease-fire deal in Gaza. At a press conference directly following the meeting, prime minister Ehud Olmert said goals of Operation Cast Lead had been met in full and thanked foreign minister Tzipi Livni for diplomatic efforts.
