    The thing is, Israel isn't doing anything wrong. Yes, they're killing people through collateral damage but there isn't anything else they can do. They can't not respond. Hamas is democratically elected. They shouldn't be attacking Israel. They shouldn't be putting military targets near civilians.

    Hamas breaks ceasefire. Israel wanted a ceasefire but Hamas broke it. What exactly does anyone want Israel to do? Ignore attacks?

    Well like de_monies said, there are those claiming the BBC's pro-Israel and then there are those saying they're pro-Palestine which surely says something and tbh having seen much of the coverage, and I can't say I've seen much evidence for a bias strongly either way really, so I'd say no they don't have a particularly strong bias either way despite the claims of many.

    You have no argument, other than one which makes they're putting guns to people's heads and the solution is simple as not doing that.

    As others have said people on both sides accuse the beeb of being biased on the topic so I think it's fair to say that people either aren't watching enough or that the BBC are being unreliable in some way with both sides- which is difficult to avoid in such a chaotic environment- and people only notice when issues about their own side are apparently omitted.

    What?

    My argument is simple. Israel is summarily executing Palestinians, in a territory they totally control and keep as an open air prison. Israel essentially wants to kill 100 Palestinains for every israeli dead and they;re quite frank about that.

    The media presents this as a war between two states and that Israel is under threat. Israel is not under threat, the Gaza strip is a prison/ghetto,

    It also states this operation is due to rocket fire, which is also false. The root cause is based on Israelis executing Palestinians children, once again for fun.

    Are you damaged?

    I've noticed complaints of bias from both sides. It's not biased, you just consider the other viewpoint to be less important than your own.

    If you're so passionate about one cause, the slightest mention of the other side is too much, it makes 50:50 reporting feel like 90:10.

    The complaints from the Israeli side are well funded, well organized groups who are designed to control the narrative on the conflict. I expect they;re funded by Israel.

    Gaza is a blockaded territory, with no sovereignty. Its people are udner Israeli control. It is a prison/ghetto.

    The people have no means to defend themselves and they;r ebeing blown to bits because they look different.

    What's wrong with you?

    Hence why Arabs are able to live peacefully with Jews in Israel.

    Hence why an Arab judge is able to sentence a previous Israeli PM over sexual offences.

    You mean how arabs live as second class citizens in Israel? Whom Israel is trying to round up into an area and attach it to the west bank?
