Rachel Corrie, Solidarity & Palestine
Program #SAIE033. Recorded in Washington, D.C. on June 15, 2003.A fiery and eloquent presentation to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee's annual meeting. Said says, "One shouldn't be surprised that Americans, in the main, have a very low opinion of Arabs and Palestinians" because "citizens of this country are fed an atrociously biased diet of ignorance and misrepresentation by the media. All the established main media organs are unanimously anti-Arab, anti-Muslim, and anti-Palestinian" who have been the target of a "vicious campaign led by Neanderthal publicists and orientalists like Daniel Pipes and Bernard Lewis. Hardly a single journalist save for Helen Thomas, has taken the administration to task for the outrageous lies and confected facts that were spun out about Iraq as an imminent threat to the U.S."
