"Toffee and the Gorilla" is an Israeli TV show starring Israeli actress Dawn Rosenzweig as Toffee. The show was titled "The History Program of Toffee the Gorilla." Israeli writer Roy Arad was a scriptwriter for the show, which appears to have aired in 2007 (iakn.us/2GCrjwF). While this show may be surprising to many Americans, there is a long precedent for such anti-Christians views. A book published by Princeton University Press, "Jesus in the Talmud" by scholar Peter Schafer, details the Talmudic passages about Jesus. See iakn.us/2SSZIMh (archived at iakn.us/2GCk5bE). Another Toffee show makes fun of the United States (which gives Israel over $10 million per day). View it at youtu.be/ta7GJV-pEKk

(Produced in 2006 by Alternate focus) Like most Americans, Alison Weir, the editor of a small-town weekly newspaper in California, knew very little about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, other than what she had gleaned from the evening news or newspaper headlines. As a journalist, her attention was on issues much closer to home. Neither a muslim nor a jew, she nevertheless became more curious about the topic of the Palestinian uprising. And as she researched it, she became increasingly suspicious that the American media were not telling us the whole story. Months later, she quit her job and traveled to the occupied territories as an independent journalist to find out for herself what the U.S. media seemed to be omitting.

Upon her return, she founded If Americans Knew, an organization dedicated to quantifying the ways in which the American media was misinforming the public about the conflict. Ms. Weir explains her group's methodology, analyzes the data, and reports on the key findings. Producers: Paul Chek and John Odam (2006)

Alternate Focus is available on the Dish Network, Free Speech TV, Channel 9415, Saturdays at 8:00pm EST and on cable stations near you. Check website for details.

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

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.
