O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
If Americans Knew was originally founded by an American freelance journalist, Alison Weir* (read her full bio and articles), who traveled independently throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip in February and March of 2001. Ms. Weir found a situation largely the reverse of what was being reported by the American media. Upon further examination of this issue – she read dozens of books on the topic – she found that the U.S. press portrayal was significantly at odds with information being reported by media throughout the rest of the world.
We are writing to let you know about several upcoming events featuring our Executive Director, Alison Weir (details below). All are free and open to the public.
We encourage anyone living in the area to please spread the word about these events and bring friends, relatives, neighbors or colleagues. This is an excellent opportunity to inform people who are new to the issue or skeptical. You can share Alison's bio with friends who might attend.
Please also let us know if you would like to set up media interviews for Alison or can help the local sponsors promote the events.
