Banned Documentary on Israel Lobby Finally Made Public
RUSSIAN TELEVISION network RT reports on Al Jazeera’s censored four-part investigation series on the Israel lobby in the US, which was leaked by the Electronic Intifada. The host explains why the Qatari network opted to censor their own investigation series after years of production. Co-Founder of the Electronic Intifada (EI), Ali Abunimah, explains why Americans must see the films to understand the full scope of Israel Lobby interference in US politics. Later, a former member of the UK Parliament, George Galloway, joins the show to discuss the Israel Lobby’s influence on Al Jazeera’s decision to censor the investigation.
The Electronic Intifada has obtained a complete copy of The Lobby – USA, a four-part undercover investigation by Al Jazeera into Israel’s covert influence campaign in the United States.
It is today publishing the first two episodes. The Paris-based Orient XXI has published the same episodes with French subtitles.
The film was made by Al Jazeera during 2016 and was completed in October 2017.
Although Al Jazeera’s director-general claimed last month that there were outstanding legal issues with the film, his assertions have been flatly contradicted by his own journalists.
You can watch the first two parts in the video embeds here.
