Al-Zaytouna Centre is pleased to offer the fourth chapter of the American Foreign Policy & the Muslim World Book for free download. “Public Opinion and the Media  is written by Alison Weir. It discusses how little Americans know about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with which they are so intimately connected.

Weir reveals the extent of bias pervading all sectors of the American media. Skewed reporting, biased statistical studies, systematic distortion and omission of Palestinian related news… make Americans have little knowledge of the Palestinian experience. She discusses the role of the alternative and progressive media “to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.”

However, Weir concludes, that groups providing accurate information on Israel-Palestine have far smaller financial support than pro-Israel groups working to continue and increase the media slant toward Israel. Until this imbalance changes, it is likely that US media coverage will remain profoundly lopsided and the American public largely misinformed on Israel-Palestine, resulting in the continuation and perhaps escalation of dangerously misguided US foreign policies – a situation that the region, the United States, and the world can ill afford.

It’s worth mentioning that al-Zaytouna Centre has previously offered Chapters 1, 2, & 3 for free download.
