This Frontline documentary was scheduled to be broadcast on PBS stations across the United States on May 14, 2019, but it was pulled at the last minute. The BBC, the co-producer, aired it in Britain.
We feel that Americans, whose tax dollars fund PBS, also have the right to see it in a timely fashion. Since the US gives Israel over $10 million per day, it is particularly important for American citizens to be fully informed about Israel's actions.
Frontline is the top in-depth news broadcast in the US: In an average week, more than 4.6 million people watch it. After numerous people complained about the cancellation, Frontline issued a statement saying it will broadcast the documentary sometime in the coming moths. It is not currently on its schedule.
For more information and for many important facts left out of the film, see Alison Weir's article at https://ifamericaknew.org/cur_sit/view-the-frontline-documentary-on-gaza-that-pbs-pulled.html

Now Frontline admits it may never show the documentary – Read https://israelpalestinenews.org/frontline-says-it-may-never-broadcast-the-gaza-documentary/

Alison Weir, American freelance journalist and founder of If Americans Knew, presented this public lecture, "Israel-Palestine: Beyond the Headlines," at Schmitt Lecture Hall at Case Western Reserve University. The event was sponsored by the Hallinan Project for Peace and Social Justice.

Ray McGovern served as a CIA analyst for 27 years, from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. Ray’s duties included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President’s Daily Brief, which he briefed one-on-one to President Ronald Reagan’s five most senior national security advisers from 1981 to 1985. He received the Intelligence Commendation Medal at his retirement.

U.S. Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tell Israeli billionaire campaign donor Haim Saban how devoted they are to Israel. The panel is at the 2018 national convention of the Israeli American Council. Pelosi, who is Speaker of the House, announces that she will name Israel partisans to chair top committees. She divulges that her father had been a member of the Bergson group, which was the American front for a Zionist terrorist group known as the Irgun. The audience, composed of Israeli citizens, roars its approval at the two powerful American politicians working for Israel. The IAC is backed by Republican billionaire donor Sheldon Adelson. Adelson, an American citizen, once said that his only regret was that he had served in the U.S. military rather than the Israeli one. The four-day conference was at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida. The next national conference will be Dec. 5-8, 2019 at the same location.

Former Congressman Pete McCloskey speaks at the 13th Institute for Historical Review conference in 2000. The topic of his speech is Israel, the Anti Defamation League and Free Speech.

By the 1980s the ADL’s main purpose was no longer to try to stop anti-Semitism and bigotry, but instead to discredit any voice that was hostile to the policies of Israel – and not only to discredit people who spoke out against Israel, but to deny them a forum.

Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress has to sign a pledge to vote for supporting the military superiority of Israel.

"Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign ... that had Jerusalem as the capital city," McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.

"You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that," she added.

McKinney said that if a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign."

The former Congresswoman said that after she made the pledge issue public "the tactic changed."

"But this is what is done for 535 members of the United States Congress, 100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives have to now write a paragraph which basically says the same thing."

He comments came as US President Barack Obama vowed to sustain Israel's military superiority over its neighbors at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) annual gathering on Sunday.

"We (the US) will maintain Israel's qualitative military edge"... "We have increased military financing to record levels," Obama said.
