Framed around a new documentary that exposes the sophisticated Israeli message machine, and the influence of American media manipulator Frank Luntz in shaping perceptions of Israel as a victim, Max Blumenthal is candid, and critical. Blumenthal is one of many contributors to this important film. We also discuss the recent execution of a wounded, disabled Palestinian suspect by an Israeli medic, and how Netanyahu initially misjudged the Israeli public’s reaction. We talk about the Brooklyn debate between candidates Clinton and Sanders, and Blumenthal has strong remarks about each. And, he states that this is the first time he’s been asked about the attempted smears Blumenthal has been targeted for by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and other allies of Israel.
*Max Blumenthal is a journalist, and author of Goliath and The 51-Day War. Get more information on the documentary mentioned, The Occupation of the American Mind here.
