Give the BBC some credit for its coverage of Gaza

There's nothing that irritates me more than Alexie Sayle and all the other "I'm-Jewish-and-I'm-ashamed-of-Israel" celebrities who pop up at anti Israel rallies. Their only acknowledgement of their Jewishness is on occasions such as these.

So it was heartening to see the BBC giving airtime to an alternative point of view. Paul Kaye, a British comedian lost his mother in law to a rocket attack from Gaza and was interviewed in reaction to an earlier interview with Alexei Sayle. Sayle had been protesting together with the STWC against Israel's operation in Gaza.
