Video: Israeli TV goofs on BBC’s Gaza bias

posted at 5:10 pm on January 14, 2009 by Allahpundit

From “Eretz Nehederet,” which is a big enough deal over there to earn cameos from the likes of Ehud Barak (before the war started). It cracked me up but I’m not sure why, given how obvious the jokes are. I think it’s just my reflexive delight at the thought that the Beeb is as much a punchline for its Arab apologism in Israel as it is in the righty blogosphere. Or maybe it’s the pitch-perfect parody of the portly IDF general with bad hair, a meta-satire on the country’s media image.

Why are they laughing when the war’s done so much damage to the peace process? Because: There is no peace process. There’ll never be peace with Hamas, and they know it.

I was staying late at work for the ‘Student Hooker’ thread, but I’m leaving now to go home and watch this.

HELL YA…

There’ll never be peace with Hamas, and they know it.

There can be. However, if they bring about that peace, they’ll be charged with mass slaughter of “Palestinian political ambassadors”.

Hamas needs to be systematically eliminated, as an entity who publicly states that their intention is to kill every Jew on earth.

MadisonConservative on January 14, 2009 at 5:16 PM

That will really piss off Hamas…
Just make fun of them.
They are a bunch of morons.

izoneguy on January 14, 2009 at 5:19 PM

MadCon

It’s not Hamas that needs eliminating. It’s Islam.

BL@KBIRD on January 14, 2009 at 5:28 PM

Gotta say… there is more truth in that video that all the stuff that comes out of the BBC, today.

I pray that the IDF will continue to pound the snot out of Hamas.

BoomJunkie on January 14, 2009 at 5:28 PM

What they did to the Hamas video reminds me of this. Gets good around 0:50

“Have a nice war”

I thought it was funny. I also enjoy LGF’s terrorist graduations with the mandatory feats of sand crawling, monkey bars, and jumping over burning tire.

Blake on January 14, 2009 at 5:37 PM

They nailed the speaking cadence of BBC reporters perfectly. Watch any BBC reporter, they all speak that way, I mean, that waaaaaaaaay.

Good stuff.

Go RBNY on January 14, 2009 at 5:43 PM

Funny stuff. I wish there were more of it…

FloatingRock on January 14, 2009 at 5:43 PM

Now that is the way to wage propaganda…make fun of the enemy.
That, btw,is the tact McCain should have taken…I would have loved to have him being carried out on stage, in a robe and give a “speech” like Obama does…just once to show how ridiculous Obama was.

right2bright on January 14, 2009 at 5:51 PM

Funnier than anything I’ve seen on SNL in a long time.

McKenz59 on January 14, 2009 at 5:51 PM

Heh, i laughed at “my wife makes a very good roasted Palestinian”.

clearbluesky on January 14, 2009 at 5:52 PM

That wasn’t really the beeb?

jukin on January 14, 2009 at 5:53 PM

That wasn’t really the beeb?

jukin on January 14, 2009 at 5:53 PM

It was the real BBC for sure.

the_nile on January 14, 2009 at 5:55 PM

That is so full of WIN

He was doing that for a couple of weeks and it worked extremely well. Remember the Paris Hilton ad spoofing his tour through Europe. Why they lost that sense of humor we’ll never know. Obama’s arrogance makes him extremely easy to lampoon, regardless what the writers at the Daily Show say.

Go RBNY on January 14, 2009 at 5:57 PM

It’s not Hamas that needs eliminating. It’s Islam.

Let’s roll.

ex-Democrat on January 14, 2009 at 6:23 PM

This is so badly needed,’HUMOUR’,to show the idiocy of
the enemy,[Hamas goons that is,not,repeat,not the IDF:)]

I’m sure there are those on this site,a ways back in time
mind you,hehe,that remember Bugs Bunny and the way the
Japanese and German military were portrayed in cartoons!
————————————-

A bit on the serious side,if anybody has Rush 24/7,and
has access to the audio of Rush’s visit to Israel,and
how he explained what Israel faces!

Benjamin Netinyahou(I apologize if I ka-botched the spelling)took Rush on a personal tour of Israel,and
explained how Israel was surrounded by its enemys,
geographically:)

canopfor on January 14, 2009 at 6:24 PM

I don’t care who you are, thats funny right there.

portlandon on January 14, 2009 at 6:30 PM

Very Funny.
Am Yisrael Chai!

annoyinglittletwerp on January 14, 2009 at 6:37 PM

That’s hysterical. If only the wimpy republicans would goof on the libs this way.

americanpatriot on January 14, 2009 at 7:07 PM

Love it, love it, love it. Well done, Israelis, well done.

mjk on January 14, 2009 at 7:36 PM

That’s great. The Beeb-alect: a cross between Robin Leach (lifestyles of the rich and famous) and Christiane Amanpour.

SNL needs to spoof her and CNN in a bad, bad way.

silverfox on January 14, 2009 at 7:54 PM

Funny! I like that they made fun of Hamas too.

CP on January 14, 2009 at 8:44 PM

We don’t ridicule our enemies nearly enough! Excellent.

Mojave Mark on January 14, 2009 at 8:51 PM

Nothing like humor to shed some light on something.

Hog Wild on January 14, 2009 at 8:55 PM

They dropped a dragon on my house – that has to be the best part along with “Have a nice war” IMHO.

Neo on January 14, 2009 at 8:56 PM

Funnier than anything I’ve seen on SNL in a long time.

McKenz59 on January 14, 2009 at 5:51 PM

True!

4shoes on January 14, 2009 at 9:51 PM

Excellent!

Fight back – If our governments won’t do it, let Israel TV.

PattyJ on January 14, 2009 at 11:12 PM

Ha! Awesome.

joewm315 on January 14, 2009 at 11:47 PM

So Israeli SNL is about as not funny as American SNL. Seriously, dumping on the BBC is a funny concept but the jokes were kinda obvious.

Illinidiva on January 15, 2009 at 12:23 AM

That was brilliant, I loved it, spot on. I hope the BBC get to see it, I will be spreading this link around loads of my contacts, excellent.

people need to stop posting controversial stuff on youtube… it just gets taken down. youtube is now the official hosting site for cat videos… don’t post anything else on it.

Nah. Jihad and Judenhass are still acceptable as long as there’s no active beheading.

Fuking DhimmiTube censored it, yet I could find plenty of pro-jihadist videos. I hear Obama’s inviting an ISNA member to pray at his inauguration. Quelle surprise. All praise go to Libtards for granting these glorious victories to the armies of Allah.

Karmashock on January 15, 2009 at 7:20 AM

Yah, Liveleak.com is better for vids like this-they bravely stood up to Islamist intimidation and re-posted Geert Wilders Fitna video.

Someone needs to do this with Arianna Huffington and Herr Olbergoebbels next………….

Could just as well be
