VIDEO Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: Media & the Israel-Palestine Conflict (79 min)
An insight-filled documentary about the Israel-Palestine conflict (if it should be called that, "conflict" seems like too light a word), covering both what is happening on the ground, and why most Americans have no idea what's happening on the ground. Filled with contrasting images from American and international press, including some surprisingly good BBC coverage, this documentary... I think... is showing a lot of TRUTH. This is especially insightful given the recent REVERSE (I.E. LYING) REPORTING of the US media about what is going on in Georgia. They tell us that Russia attacked first and Georgia responded, and likewise this video shows how they usually tell us that Palestinians attack first and Israelis responds, when it seems the reverse is true. It's getting so bad over here that I tend to believe that most of the time I'm not only being lied to by major media, but that the major media are almost always telling the exact OPPOSITE of the truth. Insanity! Wake up from your comfortable slumber, America! I was pretty damn comfortable until recently, too. War and aggression are not the answer. Say no to our government's warmongering. Refused to be lied to! Say no to war!
