Oops! Canada TV Fails to Notice 400 Rocket Attacks


gaza-rocket-air-strikeCanada’s CBC television issued an on-air apology Wednesday, a day after it misled its viewers by telling them that the recent Gazan rocket attacks on Israel were the first such attacks in a year’s time.

In fact, 405 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza in the last 12 months (according to the Elder of Zion website), and 130 have been fired over the past month – most of them this week.

On Tuesday, CBC News Anchor Reshmi Nair erroneously stated: “The United Nations is condemning a recent surge of rocket attacks on Israel and it is urging Israel to show restraint in its response. There were funerals today for two Palestinians killed in an Israeli airstrike. Israel claims they were about to launch a rocket over the border from Gaza. Hamas of Gaza denies that, but retaliatory rocket attacks were launched from Gaza after the Israeli strike. They were the first rockets fired from Gaza in more than a year after an unofficial ceasefire, and most of the recent rocket attacks have been launched by militants fired from Egyptian territory in the Sinai desert.”

  1. Those silly CBC Canucks !

    The CBC editors are what is know as “Media Duffers”. How would they like it if 400 rockets had fallen all around them ?

  2. They should have claimed that Gazan rockets deliver flowers from hothouses of settlements abandoned for peace
