banned by the BBC

Possibly you've heard about how the BBC refused to air an ad by a UK-based relief agency asking for help for people in Gaza. (Ordinarily you might call them refugees, except they're blockaded as well being bombed, so they have no place to go.) The BBC discusses it briefly, here.

Jon, do you know if this appeal has been broadcast in the U.S.?
