Archbishop criticises BBC over Gaza appeal decision

Here's another blasting for the BBC. Archbishop John Sentamu has joined the cries for the BBC to broadcast the appeal for Gaza:

This situation is akin to that of British military hospitals who treat prisoners of war as a result of their duty under the Geneva convention.

They do so because they identify need rather than cause.

This is not an appeal by Hamas asking for arms but by the Disasters Emergency Committee asking for relief. By declining their request, the BBC has already taken sides and forsaken impartiality.

Well said.
