There have been frequent appeals to provide reilef by organisations such as the Red Cross, Save the Children and DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee). There is a 46 year old agreement which has given a 2 minute slot to concerned parties in order to broadcast an appeal.
The BBC has decided that it would "prejudice" its impartiality in allowing the DEC to make a short appeal on behalf of the people of Gaza.
The reality is that the BBC is partial to one side, that of the Israelis as is quite clear fromthe news bulletins.
