Al Jazeera highlight: The Occupation of the American Mind

Narrated by Roger Waters from Pink Floyd and featuring the likes of Noam Chomsky, The Occupation Of The American Mind is an unflinching look at the information wars Israel and its supporters have been waging in the US for decades.

While recent polls have shown global public opinion turning sharply against Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and its repeated invasions of the Gaza strip, public support for Israel in the U.S. has held firm. From PR offensives designed to manage perceptions of the occupation in the 1980s to government-run social media campaigns today, The Occupation of the American Mind provides an eye-opening analysis of Israel's ongoing efforts to win the hearts and minds of the American people.

Emmy and BAFTA winner John Pilger praised it as "one of the most compelling and important documentaries in recent years," while media theorist Douglas Rushkoff hailed it as "a stunning expose on how propaganda drives public opinion and, in turn, our understanding of reality."

The Occupation of the American Mind screens on Al Jazeera English on Monday, 13 March 2017 at 2000 GMT / 2100 WAT / 2200 CAT / 2300 EAT.
