BBC Tim Willcox Has To Find A Way To Blame Jews For Being Attacked (Updated)

This clip (uploaded by Jonathan Sacerdoti) is going viral, because it should. Tim Willcox just can’t let this Jewish French woman speak without butting in and pointing out perhaps the Jews in Paris had it coming because, well, Palestine. Palestine, Palestinians, occupation, Gaza, settlements, apartheid. It’s all there in the subtext and now it’s spilling out of the BBC with barely any disguise. Blame the Jews.

Back in November Tim Willcox also let his true feelings about Jews show. BBC Watch has the story.

Update: If you want to express your displeasure directly to Tim Willcox himself, here is a link to his Twitter account.

Please don’t tweet to this guy, who is the wrong Tim Wilcox (one “L”):

Update: Varda has written an excellent deconstruction of what this means.

Update 14:24: Tim Willcox has tweeted out what he believes to be is an apology. His “poorly phrased question” was “entirely unintentional” he says. Yes, Freudian slips that reveal how you really think tend to be entirely unintentional.
