Storyline

This video shows how the foreign policy interests of American political elites-working in combination with Israeli public relations stratgies-influence US news reporting about the Middle East conflict. Combining American and British TV news clips with observations of analysts, journalists and political activists, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a brief historical overview, a striking media comparison, and an examination of factors that have distorted U.S. media coverage and, in turn, American public opinion.

A fair view on a sad subject
23 January 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Of course, political movies are always criticized by those who don't agree. But even though this film is pro-Palestinian it doesn't lie and its most certainly is not anti-Jewish (arabs are the biggest Semites group themselves so i think you mean anti-Jewish, not anti-Semite).

The makers were also tactical enough to choose many Jews to appear and criticize Israel. They bring up the issue of Jews being called self-hating for criticizing Israel. Is a ex-Cuban called self-hating when he dislikes Castro and his deeds, no, he's called freedom-fighter. Same with Chinese people who say no to Chinese oppression of minorities and other countries. Killing civilians is a SIN to someone of Jewish faith, and not something to be proud about.

The film can however, be called anti-Israeli. But i would say its not, as it only attacks the BAD THINGS Israel does, not Israel or the Israel people in general. Its the same thing as calling a film about the Vietnam war anti-American. Also the negative comments on this site:

1. Saying the films is simply lies and untrue (without specifying how) 2. Saying the film must be anti-Jewish and therefor must be dismissed.

Thanks guys for proving the film's point! This is how pro-Israels always want to move the focus from the real reason for the conflict.

The Israeli people will never be safe as long as they continue to give the Palestians good reasons to hate and fear them. And they really don't gain much from holding the occupied territories so whats the point?

Erik, Sweden
