ABSTRACT
The article assesses the impact of the response of the Israeli government to the Palestinian uprising that began in December 1987 on American public opinion as expressed by the mass media in the U.S. The author insists that while American public opinion was highly favorable toward Israel in the two decades that followed the Six Day War of 1967, it changed during the Palestinian uprising. The goal of the uprising failed to tilt public opinion in favor of the Palestinian cause, even as the mainstream American media followed through the riots against twenty-one years of Israeli occupation.
