Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land
U.S. Media & the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

How Israel manipulates and distorts American public perceptions

Through the voices of scholars, media critics, peace activists, religious figures, and Middle East experts, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land carefully analyzes and explains how—through the use of language, framing and context—the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza remains hidden in the news media, and Israeli colonization of the occupied terrorities appears to be a defensive move rather than an offensive one.

Valuable information. Should be viewed by any one who still thinks that Muslim hijackers flew planes into buildings because they were out to “destroy our way of life”.

“The Israel Lobby” is a useful manuscript when considering this kind of topic. It’s by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt. You could buy it… or just get it for free at the link I provide. The reaction to the paper was mixed, obviously, but I think that’s mainly because of some of the paper’s conclusions, not the paper’s facts. The facts are useful and fascinating. Some of the conclusions are good, other are not, and still others are intentionally misinterpreted by critics, only lending credence to many of the conclusions reached therein.

The most obvious and universal? Question Israel or its policies and you’re labeled an anti-semite. Works every time.

Agreed.

You can also watch a few videos and/or read the book by Alan Hart, “Zionism: The REAL Enemy of the Jews”.

The Book That Can’t Be Published In America

Anti-Zionism is NOT Anti-Semitism.

Another good documentary on the subject of Israel/Zionism is “Occupation 101”.

Here’s a clip with Noam Chomsky from that documentary:
