Back in 2008 Boyle made an astute joke on BBC’s Radio 4 programme Political Animal. "I've been studying Israeli army martial arts. I now know 16 ways to kick a Palestinian woman in the back. People think that the Middle East is very complex but I have an analogy that sums it up quite well. If you imagine that Palestine is a big cake, well … that cake is being punched to pieces by a very angry Jew."
Following a complaint from a listener who said the comments were "disgusting" and "anti-Semitic", the BBC Trust's editorial standards committee investigated and apologised. The committee said it endorsed the editorial complaints unit's finding into the use of the word "Jew".
Boyle wrote "I think the problem here is that the show's producers [not the BBC line managers] will have thought that Israel, an aggressive, terrorist state with a nuclear arsenal, was an appropriate target for satire". I would add here that the attempt to block any discussion on Israel is just another symptom of Jewish power. However this power falls apart once challenged publicly by people such as Boyle and others.
Whatever happened to the corporation that throughout the 60's, 70's & 80's gave us challenging comedy and drama on a regular basis.

I wish the Beeb would apologise for his birth.
I've nothing against someone having a go at Jews or whoever but this man is as funny as a fart in a tornado.
The only comedic thing here is him whining about some sort of injustice set upon him.
He's a tosser and shouldn't be given the time of day or urine if he was on fire.
Send him to Bethlehem with a red mercury bomb necklace and solve this silly issue once and for all.
