Fruit for Thought -Occupation of the American Mind, Israel's Public Relations War within the U.S.
The Occupation of the American Mind (narrated by Roger Waters) was originally released 2016; written and directed by Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp it has been repeatedly attacked and misrepresented by right and left wing pressure groups and outright ignored by virtually all mainstream media outlets and North American film festivals.
THE BEST ANSWER TO PROPAGANDA IS NOT COUNTER-PROPAGANDA — IT’S UNDERSTANDING HOW PROPAGANDA OPERATES SO IT CAN’T WORK ON YOUANYMORE. THAT’S WHAT OUR FILM DOES.”
Roger Waters, Pink Floyd Co-Founder & Narrator of The Occupation of the American Mind
AMAZING! BRILLIANTLY EXPOSES HOW AMERICAN MEDIA IS AN ACTIVE PARTNER IN THE UGLY AND ILLEGAL OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE.”
Marc Lamont Hill, CNN political analyst and host of VH1 Live
THIS IS A FILM THAT DEMANDS TO BE SEEN! IT SHOWS, WITH DEVASTATING PRECISION, HOW EFFECTIVE PROPAGANDA CAN HIDE CRIMES THAT ARE EPIC IN SCALE AND HAVE CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES.”
Ken Loach, Filmmaker & Activist
I WISH EVERY AMERICAN WOULD WATCH THIS POWERFUL DOCUMENTARY.”
Gideon Levy, columnist for Haaretz newspaper of Israel
HARROWING AND INCENDIARY! A VITAL AND UNMISSABLE FILM.”
Dave Zirin, The Nation magazine
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF JUSTICE IS ON YOUR SIDE. YOU HAVE TO DEPICT YOUR POSITION AS JUST.”
Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel
Compelling, revealing, and chilling. Not only demonstrates how hasbara — Israeli propaganda — became American common sense, but it offers one of the best accounts of Israel's violent dispossession and occupation of Palestinian lands. For over half a century, Americans drank the Kool-Aid concocted by the Israel lobby, the U.S. media, and virtually all elected officials because there were no alternatives. This film — like the movements that inspired it — is the antidote."
Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
One of the most compelling and important documentaries in recent years because it helps us make sense of the lies, mayhem, and injustice in the heart of the Middle East: Palestine. Never has propaganda, or 'public relations,' been such a lethal weapon as it is in the hands of Israel, its apologists, and manipulators. To reach behind the facade that is 'news,' watch this film."
John Pilger, Journalist and Filmmaker
A stunning exposé on how propaganda drives public opinion and, in turn, our understanding of reality. Here’s the story of how American perceptions of the Middle East — as well as resulting legislation and military strategy — are engineered: from focus group to talking points to mortar fire."
Douglas Rushkoff, Professor, Media Theory, CUNY, and Media Commentator for CNN
A remarkable achievement. Anyone who wishes to understand the deeper reasons for America's utter failure to bring peace to the region should begin by watching this powerful film."
Avi Shlaim, Professor Emeritus, Oxford University
A powerful film that exposes an infuriating reality. You cannot watch this film without grieving for the Palestinians, for the propaganda we've been subjected to, for the terrible mistakes we've made supporting horrific Israeli policies that have caused such suffering."
Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink
This terrific and memorable film comes at just the right time, when the lockstep mentality that promotes Zionist sympathies in the U.S. is eroding fast. The film lays bare the fictions that underpinned this mentality for so long, and shows us why these fabrications are now being challenged so confidently."
Andrew Ross, New York University
This hard-hitting, fact-based documentary is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and how the American public has been systematically lied to again and again. An indispensable resource for both the novice and the expert."
Deepa Kumar, Associate Professor, Rutgers University
The Occupation of the American Mind is one of the most brilliant and important documentaries I have ever seen. If you’re a university librarian or faculty member who cares about open debate and free inquiry on American college campuses, you absolutely have to make sure this film is in your school's collection. It’s mandatory viewing for students who want to understand how powerful interests manipulate the news and politics in a 'free' society. It will change the way they understand the world."
Robert W. McChesney, Professor of Communication, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign
