Who is still talking about the Palestinians?

Is the Palestinian question bound to be forgotten in the new Middle-Eastern political stage?

The rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran, the Syrian and Yemeni wars, access to natural resources, the growing importance of Turkey and the brutal politics of Saudi heir Mohammed Bin Salman have become the new Middle Eastern geopolitical cursors, to the detriment of the Palestinian question. As Israel and the United States have clearly buried the two-state solution, does the Palestinian Authority have to choose between being an international puppet and/or being an authoritarian and corrupted regime?

Alper and Earp's Occupation of the American Mind shows how the future of the Palestinian question is more likely to be discussed in USA newsrooms than in Palestine.

The Occupation of the American Mind

By Jeremy Earp & Loretta Alper


While recent polls have shown global public opinion turning sharply against Israeli policy, public support for Israel in the U.S. has held firm. Narrated by Roger Waters with commentary by eminent conflict experts, The Occupation of the American Mind casts an incisive glance on the information war that Israel and its followers are waging in the United States.
