BBC's shoddy, prejudicial treatment of Israel and Jewish issues continued in a May 8 Hardtalk segment with Sarah Montague that featured anti-Jewish, Israel-basher Norman Finkelstein as commentator on American Jewish attitudes towards Israel.
The week of March 1 is the week for indoctrinating students to hate Israel. The country's most virulent adversaries will concentrate their attention on campuses in North America and beyond, spreading falsehoods and encouraging boycott of the Jewish state, or even its destruction.
