Tim Willcox later apologized on Twitter for his comment. He said the comment was poorly phrased and entirely unintentional. But pro-Israel lobbyist groups have launched a campaign, calling for a complaint to the BBC. The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism said his apology was not good enough. It said the B-B-C needs to make an on-air apology. Others have called for the resignation of Willcox. This comes as the B-B-C has been time and again accused of pro-Israel bias. Back in July, protesters picketed the state broadcaster's headquarters in London for its one-sided coverage of Israel's deadly onslaught on Gaza.
