Here is my letter to BBC complaints:
Dear Sir or Madam,

I am greatly concerned that the BBC has chosen not to broadcast an appeal by DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) for assistance to the civilian population of Gaza. The people of Gaza have suffered on enormously. Humanitarian aid is vitally needed. Rather than remaining objective, the BBC gives every impression of making a highly politicized decision by refusing to facilitate assistance.

In The Investigation on BBC Radio 4, Simon Cox did a good job of exploring whether the UN Human Rights Council is unfair to Israel. Certainly, he showed, its failings worldwide have been many.
