UK government complains against BBC's role in Israel's war effort

I just got an email from the Stop the War Coalition saying, "Government complains to BBC for blocking Gaza appeal". The only back up for the claim is this one line:
Stop the War understands that the government has contacted the BBC to complain about its decision to refuse the broadcasting of a humanitarian appeal for Gaza.
Now if this is true, this backs up what I was saying earlier about Israel's Sharpeville. As it happens, the Electronic Intifada said the same thing about the assault on Gaza. And now a government whose leader, Gordon Brown, is an honorary patron of the zionist organisation, the Jewish National Fund has complained to the BBC for helping Israel starve the Palestinians.
