Film screening: Occupation of the American Mind

When: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: Wheelock College of Education • 2 Silber Way • Boston

“The Occupation of the American Mind breaks down the devastatingly effective public relations war that Israel and right-wing pro-Israel advocacy groups have been waging for decades in the US. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the film explores how the Israeli government, the US government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives and interests, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor.

Free film screening: The Stones Cry Out

When: Monday, February 24, 2020, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: BU School of Theology • 745 Commonwealth Avenue • room B24 (basement) • Boston

Where are the Christians of the Holy Land?  All too often media coverage of the conflict in Palestine has erroneously framed it as a fitht between Muslims and Jews, deliverately ignoring the face that Pelestine was the birthplace of Christianity, that Palestinians are both Muslims and Christians, and that Palestinian Christians have played a critical role in their land's history and the struggle to maintain its identity.  Leading Palestinian Christians recount the unwavering and sometimes deperate struggle of all Palestinians to resist Israel's occupation and to stay on their land.
