“Support for Israel” is often called the third-rail of U.S. politics. Any elected official daring to criticize Israel in any way will get “burned.” Why is that? What exactly is the Israel Lobby, and what is the extent of its power?
When Al Jazeera produced a 4-part documentary series on this lobbying “industry,” it received such intense pressure it was forced to cancel the broadcast. Then, The Electronic Intifada posted a leaked copy. THE LOBBY–USA, Episode 4 of series follows an undercover journalist posing as a pro-Israel volunteer who gets unprecedented access to the operations of Israel lobby groups in Washington, D.C. We watch as Israel’s covert campaign strives to influence partisan politics, campus life, major network news reporting, and social media in America. This will be the first in a series of VFHL salons on the theme “Marketing the Israeli Occupation.”
