Sno-King Meaningful Movies presents The Occupation of the American Mind as its Nov.10 film, screening at 6:30 pm at the Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 8109 224th St. S.W., Edmonds.

From the Meaningful Movies announcement:

Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory and blockade of the Gaza strip have triggered a backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world — except the United States. This documentary examines 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, 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.

The Occupation of the American Mind analyzes Israel’s decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people — a battle that has intensified over the past few years in the face of international condemnation of Israel’s current right-wing policies.

Discussion will follow the film with special guest, the Rev. Dick Gibson. The event is free, but donations are accepted. For more information go to meaningfulmovies.org.

  1. Saying that Israelis are occupying land that doesnt belong to them is a bit biased, maybe even a bit anti-Semitic. It could objectively be said that the US foreign policy is too complicated, favoring Israel, but more so than favoring Saudi Arabia?

    Trump hasn’t started any new wars [yet], so it can be said hes doing a great job. Hillary and Obama had already devised to destroyed Libya and Syria at this point, at the behest of secret Saudi Allies and secret Treaties. The whole region is proxy war, fed with US weapon sales and foreign aid. At least the Israeli conflicts are over where they live, less than over OPEC and the petrol-dollar schemes.

    Even though it cant be said that it was state-sanctioned, Saudi Arabians attacked us on 9-11 and our government rewarded them by agreeing to attack their enemies in Iraq and agreeing to pull our bases out of the peninsula (the bases being the reason Bin Ladin attacked us). But ya, Israel.
