Israeli comedians mock BBC in side-splitting sketch of war coverage


share close

Israeli comedians have mocked reporting by the BBC after the broadcaster was criticised for its coverage of the Al-Ahli hospital bombing in Gaza.

During the show, a pretend BBC newsreader says: “Good evening from London, here are some news from the war in Gaza.”

On the screen, a BBC News banner then appears and reads: “Israel bombs hospital. 500 killed” as the actress says: “Israel has bombed a hospital killing hundreds of innocent people.”

The “newsreader” then shakes her head and indicates to the person behind the camera for “more, more”.

A compilation of clips appears on screen from the hospital blast and includes a paper plane flying over head, a scene from the movie Oppenheimer and an exploding bomb


The banner’s death count then changes to “750 killed”, with the woman declaring this was “much better”.

Later the screen cuts to mock BBC Middle East correspondent “Harry Whiteguilt”, who says: “Good evening Rachael from the illegal colony of Tel Aviv.

“Israeli officials have denied bombing the hospital, but we have video footage showing what really happened indeed.”

A compilation of clips then appears on screen from the hospital blast and includes a paper plane flying overhead, a scene from the movie Oppenheimer and an exploding bomb.


The newsreader said: “Absolutely shocking Harry,” before a new banner appears, which reads: “We love Hamas” with the BBC News logo next to it.

Harry then replies: “We got this video from Hamas the most credible not terrorist organisation in the world.”

“I’m sorry Rachael, I’ve got some terrible news. The United States Pentagon says it has evidence Israel did not bomb the hospital.”

Newsreader Rachael then adds: “What? Well… I guess it’s going to be one of those things we can never be sure about. Like how the Jews knew about 9/11 and did not go to work that day,” before winking.

“No, they just published recordings of Hamas Freedom Fighters admitting they were the ones who fired the missiles by mistake,” correspondent Harry clarifies.

A recording from who they call “Jihad Militant #1”, is then played. He says: “My god, what a huge mistake. I fired our missile on our own hospital.”

Another militant replied: “It’s ok not a big deal. Maybe we had there a few gays. That’s life. You win some you lose some.”

Back in the studio, fake BBC journalist Rachael said again: “Well, I guess we’ll never know exactly what happened.”

Another audio clip by “Jihad Militant #”‘ repeated: “No, no, we did it,” but Rachael still insisted: “It’s just going to stay a mystery.”

“Jihad Militant #2” said: “It’s not a mystery. It’s us. Totally us. Only us.”

Both fake BBC employees looked confused before Harry says: “But it’s still Israel’s fault… because the Israel blockade prevented Hamas from getting proper functioning missiles and this is why tragic accidents like this happened indeed.”

Newsreader Rachael then ends saying: “Good night everyone and remember: Israel is ISIS.”

The BBC has admitted it was wrong to speculate that a rocket that hit a Gaza hospital was an “Israeli air strike”.
