    Default Jonathan Sacks's Moment of Candour

    Not sure if this is worth a thread but amusing to see a situation where a interviewee says one thing in public and another in private or so he thought.

    Why would mentioning the attack on Gaza as being related to Iran necessitate such secrecy and a scrambling to change the subject? This is about the beginning of a third world war and these craven bastards are saying 'be quiet and don't mention it' while we are walked into it.

    Unbelievable cravenness and for what? So that they can keep their pathetic few grand while nuclear weapons are contemplated? Don't they have children?

    How come they all know that this is unmentionable? Was there a memo? Where does this common understanding come from?

    What appalling 3rd rate individuals they are. Complicit in the set up of such horror yet listen to their accents, their airs and graces, self-importance and above all sense of propriety. Just like the same disgusting crew of herself and that charlatan Dobson on 6-1 in Ireland.

    Here's someone who isn't a c-nt and who'll tell you a very possibly true interpretation of what's going on in Gaza. This might help you to plan ahead to protect yourself and your family, unlike those faux respectable scumbags in rté and bbc who'll drive you towards genocide and biological and chemical weapons so long as they keep a few quid in their bank account for keeping schtum.

    one of the consequences that the Israeli war gamers could not mask in the aftermath of an attack on Iran would be the thousands of rockets and longer range missile attacks from Iranian proxies in Gaza and Lebanon who's numbers were more than capable of overcoming Israel's missile defence shield that could perhaps deal with upto 200 rockets per day rather than the prospects for peak attacks of probably over 2000 per day that would be in addition to any remaining Iranian longer range missiles that Israel hoped to degrade during the initial air war.

    The Israeli Government is using Hamas retaliation as political cover for the justification for an all out air and ground assault against Gaza with the primary objective for seeking out and destroying much of Hamas's longer range rocket stock piles...Following the destruction of Hamas's Gaza ability to retaliate following an attack on Iran, and Syria being out of the picture, the Israeli war machine will next eye Phase 2 for a similar programme of first provocation, then invasion and destruction of Hezbollah military infrastructure.

    It is highly likely that an attack against Iranian nuclear and military infrastructure would follow at the peak of Israeli incursion into southern Lebanon as that would have Hezbollah under maximum pressure.

    Is it true? We don't know but it's possible and that should be enough. These c-unts in bbc and rté playing the american and british propaganda song about Gaza the better to enable this plan to go ahead are scum of the highest order. Do they have no children? How fking craven do you have to be to think about your job, car and nice clothes so much that you'll give cover to the build up to genocide to keep them?

    The BBC has apologised to the chief rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, after Radio 4's Today presenter Evan Davis asked him a question about the violence in Gaza without telling him he was live on air.

    When Sacks finished his Thought for the Day on Friday morning, Davis asked him to comment on the Gaza situation before he left the studio.

    Sacks, seemingly unaware that he was live, said "I think it's got to do with Iran, actually", before Davis' co-presenter Sarah Montague whispered: "We, we're live."

    His tone then changed markedly and he called for "a continued prayer for peace, not only in Gaza but for the whole region, no one gains from violence".

    According to a number of BBC sources, Sacks was said to be "angry" about the incident and made his feelings known to Today's production team.

    The BBC said that Davis had apologised to Sacks and the corporation also issued a statement: "The chief rabbi hadn't realised he was still on air and as soon as this became apparent, we interjected. Evan likes to be spontaneous with guests, but he accepts that in this case it was inappropriate and he has apologised to Lord Sacks. The BBC would reiterate that apology."

    However, according to one senior BBC executive, the incident reflects the chaos at BBC News. "This is another cock up for BBC News – they are a law unto themselves on this one," said the source.

    "It is a cardinal law that you don't do that to a Thought for the Day presenter – that's a separate thing and you don't ask them questions like that.

    "Lord Sacks is the chief rabbi. You show him some respect. This may also fuel the idea in some people's minds that the BBC is anti-Israel

    Jonathan Sacks is a good all round fella. He has strived to work with all religions and none in his role as UK Chief Rabbi. The reporter meanwhile is a tool.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Cardinal law....a bit catholic for a Chief Rabbi. My sources tell me that the person in charge of unattributable quotes is going to be disciplined.

    that was kind of the angle I was going for, most of the time everyone is on point and you dont get to see behind the curtain. Its nice to see the mask slip from time to time. It happens a lot on business programmes where a couple of the guests will be chatting but once one of them goes on air they will say the exact opposite to maintain the company line.
