I hope you are up to speed with the 60 year genocide of the Palestinian people. if not then please try to ask your self: WHY NOT?
This following video might help….I’ve watched it a number of times and I’ts pretty good:
Synopsis: Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites–oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others–work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies to exercise a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported.

After watching that, try watching this to see the accuracy (if not too favourable to UK media Re:reporting of the Palestinian reporting) PP&PL. I’m not patient enough (or smart enough, or both) to figure out how to embed video in this blog. But I can link…

When CBC News spoke with Ismail Hawarjeh at Bethlehem’s hospital earlier this month, there was no way to verify the story he told about how his wife had died, until Israel’s Channel 2 broacast the tape last weekend”
