5/13/21 Alan Macleod on the Global PR Offensive of the Israeli Propagandists

Scott interviews Alan Macleod about all the ways the mainstream media distorts the Israel-Palestine narrative to make it seem like both sides share some of the blame for an unfortunate situation that isn’t really anyone’s fault. What’s never explained is the fact that the supposed Palestinian territories are at this point little more than heavily-occupied refugee camps, and that attacks from the Palestinians are the predictable result of decades of Israeli aggression. Still, Scott and Macleod are hopeful that when the facts on the ground are so obvious and one-sided, people will soon wake up to what’s going on.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Hamas launches new attack on Israel after Jerusalem clashes” (New York Post)
  • “Gaza militants, Israel trade new rocket fire and airstrikes” (AP News)
  • “20 dead in Gaza as Israel responds to Hamas rocket fire” (Yahoo News Australia)
  • “In Wake of HRW Apartheid Report, Israeli Propagandists Launch Global PR Offensive” (MintPress News)
