UK: BBC journalist says attacks against Jews are 'other side' of Israeli actions

The same media which claims that accusing Israel of genocide and ethnic cleansing does not mean they accuse all Jews of such, then turn around and explain that Jews are attacked because of evil Israel.

Am I the only one who isn't getting it?

Via BBC Watch:
One of the items appearing in the January 19th edition of the BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine show (available for a limited period of time from 36:57 here) was built around discussion of the following irrelevant – and frankly crass – question put by the host in his introduction.

Angela Epstein’s answer to that question includes the following statement:

“We are targets of Muslim terror because we are Jews and the same does not happen the other way round even in the face of heinous provocation…”

Vine quickly jumps in:

“You say it doesn’t happen the other way round – there will be people who say wait; when you look at the State of Israel and what it does in the occupied territories, that’s the…that’s the other side of the argument.
