In 1953 the tobacco companies, tired of being at war with each other,  met to form a common front. Although they knew then that 94 percent of lung cancer deaths were among smokers they issued “The Frank Statement” in which they denied that smoking causes cancer. This is described as the biggest public relations campaign in all history. They promised that if cigarettes proved dangerous they would be pulled off the market. While this was a clear lie there was no political opposition until the 1990s. At a hearing organized by 46 American states in 1998 each of the seven tobacco company executives who were called to testify deny that nicotine is addictive. The resolution was that they would pay 201 billion dollars to avoid a verdict. They were also forbidden to market to children (in the United States) and to make available to the public all of their documents. No documents could be destroyed until 2008. While they released millions of pages of useless information dogged research unearthed some interesting admissions: “Nicotine is addictive. We are in the business of selling an addictive drug.”

The Ultra Zionists is a British documentary that was televised on 3 February 2011. Louis Theroux goes to East Jerusalem, Hebron and Nablus. The documentary follows Theroux as he investigates ultra-nationalist Jewish settlers. He follows and visits several Jewish settlers and also is shown around the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem by Daniel Luria of the Ateret Cohanim Zionist Movement. Theroux says: “I was making a documentary about these ultra-nationalist Jewish settlers, called The Ultra-Zionists. For several weeks I’d been spending time in some of the most hardcore and uncompromising sections of the Israeli nationalist community – the Jewish enclave in Hebron, in the hilltops in the north of the West Bank, and in the crowded Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem…”
