Parts 1 and 2 (of 4) of the censored Al Jazeera documentary on the Israel lobby in the U.S. are finally available. The documentary was never broadcast by Al Jazeera due to pressure from some Jewish groups and individuals. It was eventually leaked to a few groups, which posted some short clips (more information here). On November 2nd the first two parts finally became available to the public.
The videos are also available in French and Arabic on OrientXXI, which provides additional information. The group says the rest of the documentary will be available in the coming weeks.

Below is the beginning of an uncorrected transcript of part 1 of the Al Jazeera film (We hope to eventually we will provide corrected transcripts – please check back):
- In the first series of the lobby al-jazeera’s investigative unit exposed the role of pro-israel operatives in Britain.
“Their headlines at 11 o’clock: Israel’s ambassador to the UK has apologized after a senior diplomat was caught on camera saying he wanted to take down the Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan. Alan Duncan who’s a strong critic of Jewish settlers.”
An undercover reporter for al-jazeera doing an investigation into Britain’srelationship with Israel, his investigation exposes a covert Israeli campaign to influence British policy.
The investigation led to the resignation of Shai Mossad a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy
Massad was also heard describing the foreign secretary Boris Johnson as an idiot
“The diplomatic question no longer seems to be a functionary of the embassy in London – whatever he may exactly have been doing here his cover can be said to be well and truly blown.”
At the same time Al Jazeera had been running a second undercover operation. Some of our reporters covert filming was included in the first series of the lobby. his identity became known.
Tony had spent five months inside the pro-israel lobby in the United States. he’d impressed colleagues with his understanding of the Middle East.
“You have the resourcefulness to sort of fix tricky jerkily about this whereas most people aren’t able to do that.”
A prominent jewish online magazine described tony as the perfect gentleman who became one of the town’s best like zionist activists.
“You did amazing work here, the guys don’t stop talking about you. They still talk about you.”
Tony threw elaborate parties and apparently anyone interested in telling a story about sinister Israeli influence in America’s capital couldn’t have asked for a better guest list
In a new edition of the lobby we investigate the role of pro-israel advocacy groups in this country in the first of a four-part series, how the lobby is being drawn into Israel’s covert campaign to spy on American citizens.
Using an undercover reporter al jazeera’s investigative unit infiltrates one of the most powerful lobbies in the world.
“Getting $38 billion in security aid to Israel matters, which is what AIPAC just did.”
We examine how the lobby led by AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has secured unwavering support in Congress………
