Alison Weir: Israel, Palestine, and the U.S. Connection to the Holy Land

Wednesday, December 10

Time: 6:30 p.m. — 8 p.m.

Location: Sears Recital Hall

Alison Weir, author of Against Our Better Judgment and executive director of If Americans Knew, will discuss bias in U.S. news coverage of events in Israel-Palestine, citing several media studies that found enormous disparities in how Israeli and Palestinian deaths were reported on in mainstream media outlets. She will also explore the history of U.S-Israel relations, focusing on the massive pro-Israel lobbying efforts in the 1930’s and 40’s that led to the U.S. support for Israel’s creation in 1949.
