The Film the Israel Lobby Does Not Want You to See

Chris Hedges

The Lobby,” the four-part Al-Jazeera documentary that was blocked under heavy Israeli pressure shortly before its release, has been leaked online by the Chicago-based website Electronic Intifada, the French website Orient XXI and the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar.

It is heartening to know that at least public opinion is not buying the Israeli propaganda, but I have no doubt that die hard zionists are willing to go to any means to destroy opponents of Israeli apartheid. Terrorist groups, like Israel, have so much influence on U.S. political discourse, that it fuels the same type of racism that Hitler relied on to keep in power. As the film shows, being “pro-Israel” is being pro-racist and undermines any notion of universal justice and human rights. I think it is critical for all Americans to ban together for the end of racism everywhere regardless of the flag bearer. It will take a lot of courage to go up against the ruthless Israeli campaign to rationalize the apartheid State in Palestine, but if humanity is to advance one iota, the battle begins here at home.

By the way, Thank You Chris Hedges for being so brave. You are truly a beacon of hope in our corporate dystopia.

Israelis are the most anti-Semetic and looney characters on Earth.

What kind of people push for war against a nation that has the second largest jewish population in the middle east?

Anti-Semetic Israeli character assassins.

religion is a brain eating parasite.
Religious feudalism driven by ideology of niche mental retardation will kill the planet with everything else.

If we got rid of religion, I am sure genuine issues would cause wars, and we would still destroy the planet.

Israel doesn’t want you to know the truth. Netanyahu is a lot like Bush, Obama & Trump, he lies to make you see things his way.

Near the end of the 1st video an Israeli lobbyist mentions that much of their strategy is shaped by David Petrayus / Joint Chiefs Counterinsurgency Manual. This has been thoroughly critiqued by The Network of Concerned Anthropologists and slim but dense little volume revealing the scorning of ethics in the militarization of anthropological research methodologies in the field. Appropriate entitled The Counter Counterinsurgency Manual.

In 2009 Counterpunch took a stab at laying out the insidious Counterinsurgency, Anthropology and Disciplinary Complicity

Virtually the entire federal government are puppets of the Israeli lobby. Once that was considered an extreme statement and untrue, but not now.

You shouldn’t criticize right-wing Israelis or manipulators for Israel because everyone knows that they are Jews pushing Jewish interests, and that makes the criticism anti-Semitic. Anything that runs counter to Jewish interests is by definition anti-Semitic and should be stamped out - it’s just motivated by hate.

The Palestinians are terrorists: they should allow Jews to take the land of the area as they need it and its resources without protest because people who lived there a couple of thousand years ago were Jews, and because the Jews deserve a land of their own - if the Palestinians would just accede to that, they would not have to be held in the Gaza concentration camp, or brutally policed in the West Bank, and Israel would not have the task of “mowing the lawn”, something the Palestinians don’t like. Alternatively, if the Palestinians would just leave the area en mass, that would be a solution. Palestinians wanting a State of their own is just ridiculous because that would prevent Jews taking more of the West Bank as they need it for Jewish settlements - it should remain a land bank for Jewish expansion.

On Youtube, search for “The Lobby”. Here’s a link to pt 1.

I don’t see the basis for outrage, the Arabs have made it clear their goal is drive the Jews out of the Mideast (as they have already done in Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and did in Jerusalem, Jericho, Hebron etc when they had control 1948-1967 (not even allowing Jews from anywhere in the world to visit Jewish historic sites there) and now they complain when Israelis and their friends take steps to defend themselves from those who want to destroy their state. As for democratic rights for all in an Arab Palestine, where does that happen in the Arab world, not just a lack of rights for Jews but for women, gays, atheists, Christians, even Muslims of the wrong sect.

The only way to help the Palestinians is not to demonize Israelis (where does that get anyone) but to make peace with them. The same thing is true the other way around, Israelis can’t live in peace either unless they make peace with Palestinians. Rather than promoting hate as Hedges likes to do, promote reconciliation, a spirit of compromise on all sides and an understanding each others narrative.

HI Tom_Larsen:
I saw it on Jazeera… I think it was 4 films in a sequence…but I was horrified as Israel gets so much taxpayer money and it was horrifying in how with such glee that American college students worked to undermine people’s lives if they supported Palestine rights . And AIPAC works so hard to undermine Americans who criticize Israel on anything—the term anti-Semitic has lost all meaning as Arabs are semites too and eastern Europeans are not semitic. Sadly Senator Schumer and others along with AIPAC are trying to make it illegal to support BDS. So, an American senator wants to diss the First Amendment. Watch the films and cry. : (

What a quandary: to support boycott, divestment and sanctions, and also Bernie Sanders for President! So who is anti-Jewish?

Nutty Yahoo: “BDS IS A MORAL OUTRAGE”. Enough said!

Does a country that is doing nothing wrong have to go to this level to change the narrative?

It is an extremely true statement.

HI Shantiananda:
What would Netanyahu know about the word, “Moral?”
