1. The Occupation of the America Mind(DVD)
A new documentary film narrated by legendary musician and activist Roger Waters
of Pink Floyd fame trains a harsh light on Israel’s decades-long propaganda
war in the U.S.The Occupation of the American Mind examines how the Israeli
government, the U.S. government, and pro-Israel lobbying groups have waged a
series of coordinated PR campaigns
to manage political fallout from Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian
land and shape American media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in
Israel’s favor. “We’re talking about a sophisticated and sustained
campaign that for decades has silenced meaningful debate about Israel’s
repression of Palestinian human rights while vilifying pro-Palestinian
voices,” said Sut Jhally, the Executive Producer of the film. “The point of
the effort is to make sure nobody questions U.S. support for Israel, and
there’s no question it’s been amazingly effective. What we’re trying to do
with this film is simply clear some space for rational and balanced discussion
about the conflict and U.S. support for Israel.”

2. Al Nakba (The Catrastrophe) - 2 DVD Set
The Nakba did not begin in 1948. Its origins lie over two centuries ago begins
this four-part series on the nakba, meaning the catastrophe, about the history
of the Palestinian exodus that led to the first Arab-Israeli war in 1948 and the
establishment of the state of Israel. The narrative moves through the 19th
century and into the 20th century with the British Mandate in Palestine and
comes right up to date in the 21st century and the ongoing Al-Nakba on the
ground. In early 1948, Jewish paramilitary forces intensified their seizure of
Palestinian land which had begun with the beginning of the British mandate after
WW I. By the end of July, more than 400,000 Palestinians had been forced to flee
their homes, and their plight as refugees had just begun For Palestinians, 1948
marks the 'Nakba' or the catastrophe', when hundreds of thousands were forced
out of their homes. But for Israelis, the same year marks the creation of their
own state. Arab, Israeli and Western intellectuals, historians and eye-witnesses
provide the central narrative which is accompanied by archive material and
documents, many only recently released for the first time.

3.. Roadmap to Apartheid Narrated by Alice Walker(DVD)
In this award-winning documentary, the first-time directors take a detailed look
at the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict. Narrated by Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple), Roadmap to
Apartheid is as much a historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid in
South Africa, as it is a film about why many Palestinians feel they are living
in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the
world agree with them. While not perfect, the apartheid analogy is a useful
framework by which to educate people on the complex issues facing Israelis and
Palestinians. Our film delves into those issues, comparing the many similar laws
and tools used by both Israel and apartheid-era South Africa. The audience will
see what life is like for Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and inside
Israel while gaining a deeper understanding of the conflict with the help of
respected analysts on the subject. Combined with archival material
