Israel’s Public Relations War In The United States ~ Narrated by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd
An Excellent Must See Film – Frank Dorrel
THIS IS A FILM THAT DEMANDS TO BE SEEN! IT SHOWS, WITH DEVASTATING PRECISION, HOW EFFECTIVE PROPAGANDA CAN HIDE CRIMES THAT ARE EPIC IN SCALE AND HAVE CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES.
— Ken Loach, Filmmaker & Activist
Over the past few years, Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world—except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor. From the U.S.-based public relations campaigns that emerged in the 1980s to today, the film provides a sweeping analysis of Israel’s decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people in the face of widening international condemnation
of its increasingly right-wing policies.
