The Oslo Accords

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter looks at several of the entities and tactics shepherding the opinions that Americans follow regarding Israel and Palestine; the experience journalists and others have in attempting to report on or expose this issue; and the oft-overlooked impact of Christian media on the perception, politics, and continuation of the status quo. Topics discussed include how most Americans perceive Oslo through the Israeli narrative; how a country that values its First Amendment cultivate a media that seems more interested in polarization, celebrities, and sensationalism than in reporting the news; the players who manage the narrative of Israel and Palestine; the media's employment of euphemisms and obfuscations rather than accurate terms in order to control the narrative; and reporting in the Middle East.
