If Americans Knew

by
Abby Zimet

With outrage at the Gaza flotilla attack still rippling out - and
Israel's largely cosmetic but loudly proclaimed loosening
of the blockade in response to it -  it's more important than ever that
the realities of the Occupation and the Palestinian lives lived under
it be known. If Americans Knew offers graphs, numbers, too-little
known facts. U.S. military aid to Israel: $7 million a day, to
Palestine: $0. Homes Demolished: Israeli: 0, Palestinian: 24,145.
Particularly telling: the "deadly distortion" that is U.S. media coverage of the
conflict.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
