The first conference in the series was attended via Skype by Noam Chomsky, who spoke on the topic of “After 68 Years: Why Is There No Solution to the Israel-Palestine Conflict?

The subject of my talk was “The Role of the US Media in the Palestine Conflict“, in which I explained how the media serve to manufacture consent for the US policy of financially, militarily, and diplomatically supporting Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians. I cited a number of case studies clearly illustrating how the media serve this function.

I was told the event would be recorded, so hopefully I’ll be able to post a video later. For now, click here to read my lecture on the media’s role! And please share!
