The Film:
Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world -- except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, offering an analysis of Israel's decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people.
