Second West Coast Showing:

The suppressed Al Jazeera documentary on the Israel lobby in the U.S.

Al Jazeera produced a documentary on the Israel Lobby in Britain that had an explosive impact. Then they
produced a documentary on the Israel Lobby in the United States. But powerful Israel partisans from the
U.S. traveled to Qatar and succeeded in pressuring Al Jazeera not to release it. However, the attempt to
censor this information failed when the film was leaked and posted on the Internet.

In the film, the head of Israel's Strategic Affairs Department was filmed by an undercover reporter
discussing Israel's secret coordination with American pro-Israel groups:

" ... the Israeli government decided to be a key player, it means a lot. We can bring things that usually
don't exist in NGOs and civilian entities .... We are a different government working on foreign soil and
we have to be very, very cautious. We have three different sub-campaigns which are very, very
sensitive.Regarding data gathering, information analysis, working on activist organization, money
trail. This is something that only a country, with its resources, can do the best..."
