Huomasin myös Ylen artikkelin jossa oli hyvin melankoolinen tunnelma kun Israel teki rauhansopimuksen muslimimaan kanssa.
Hyvin ikävä uutinen Ylen kannalta.

How An App Funded By Sheldon Adelson Is Covertly Influencing The Online Conversation About Israel

The Act.IL app paints itself as a grassroots initiative, but one expert calls it "advanced digital political astroturfing."
...
The same user left almost identical comments on the Facebook pages of CNN International, Canada’s Global News, Iran’s PressTV, and Nigeria’s Channels Television. Hers were among the most-liked comments on all five news organizations’ Facebook posts. While the engagement appeared organic to those on Facebook, the comments and resulting likes were in fact part of a coordinated campaign to flood social media with talking points defending Israel’s actions in Gaza.

The campaign, which targeted dozens of prominent international outlets, was organized through Act.IL, a smartphone app and website developed by former Israeli intelligence officers in collaboration with the Israeli government, and with financial backing from conservative American casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Act.IL is a tool in the information war being waged over public perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. While Facebook, Twitter, and other tech companies have become increasingly alert to manipulation campaigns on their platforms, Act.IL has managed to fly under the radar thanks to an army of thousands of volunteers who post comments and images, and follow commands to like or criticize other online content.

“This is a unique case of advanced digital political astroturfing,” said Katie Joseff, research manager of the Digital Intelligence Laboratory at the Institute for the Future, a think tank that studies the social impact of technology.
...
Joseff said the app’s reliance on human users, as opposed to bots, lends “credibility and nuance” to Act.IL's influence campaigns and makes them harder to detect. She said governments in Ecuador, Russia, Turkey, and the Philippines have used similar methods to spread propaganda.
...
Anyone can join Act.IL, and the platform is available on the web and as a smartphone app in the Apple and Google app stores. While it’s unclear how many active users there are, an affiliated Facebook group has more than 3,000 members worldwide. Once logged in to Act.IL, users are presented with a series of active “missions” they can take part in. Users earn participation points that can be redeemed to "get cool prizes,” according to an introductory video.
...
Act.IL was developed as part of an effort during Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s 2014 war against Hamas in Gaza. Hundreds of Israeli university students joined a digital “war room” to post pro-Israel content on social media in order to combat a wave of international outrage over the lopsided death toll. (According to a United Nations report, 2,251 Palestinians died in the conflict, including 1,462 civilians; 67 Israeli soldiers and six civilians in Israel also died.) The experience sowed the seeds of what eventually became Act.IL, which was unveiled at a festival celebrating Israel in New York in June 2017 by Gilad Erdan, Israel’s minister of strategic affairs.
...
The app was developed by the Interdisciplinary Centre in Herzliya, the Israeli university that hosted the “war room” in 2014, as well as by two American non-profits, the Israeli-American Council and the Maccabee Task Force. All three are supported financially by Adelson, the billionaire GOP mega-donor and close ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Act.IL has been promoted by the Israeli government, including on a website run by the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, the government department tasked with burnishing Israel’s image abroad and fighting the international BDS campaign to boycott, sanction, and divest from Israel over its treatment of Palestinians.

The founder and CEO of Act.IL, Yarden Ben Yosef, is a former army intelligence officer who told the Forward last year that he is in regular contact with the country's military and security establishment over the app’s content, and that Act.IL is largely staffed by former intelligence officers.

Despite these links, however, both Act.IL and the Israeli government deny any formal relationship.
...
In addition to astroturfing campaigns, Act.IL has also taken part in activities that one activist likens to online harassment.
...
The activities of pro-Israel groups in the United States have come under scrutiny in recent weeks after portions of an unaired Al Jazeera documentary filmed in 2016 were leaked to other outlets. The documentary includes undercover reporting and hidden-camera footage that is said to reveal how Israel's government and sympathetic advocacy groups influence public perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, often using underhanded tactics. The head of Al Jazeera's investigative unit has suggested the film is being suppressed due to international pressure on Qatar, which funds Al Jazeera.
...
The Electronic Intifada news site reported, based on a leaked portion of the film, that the Washington, DC-based group The Israel Project regularly inserted pro-Israel messages into a number of popular Facebook pages it controls that are ostensibly about feminism, environmentalism, and other causes not directly related to Israel. ProPublica reported that the Israel On Campus Coalition — an organization with links to the Israeli government — secretly funded ads on Facebook targeting a Palestinian poet and activist as a promoter of "hate" during his tour of American universities in 2016.

Mahdetaankohan tätä touhua ruokkia vielä sillä, että joidenkin aiempien väitteiden mukaan Israel valvoisi aktiivisesti jokseenkin reaaliaikaiesti sosiaalista mediaa automatisoidusti ja pystyy reagoimaan jopa alle minuutissa. Reagointitapoihin tuntuu kuuluvan mm. kiusallisten sisältöjen tai tilien bannatuksi saaminen somealustoilta...

Senior Trump Official Says Politicians Get 'Very Rich' by Supporting Israel

Douglas Macgregor, one of several Trump loyalists recently installed at the Pentagon, says the pro-Israeli lobby in the United States is trying to drag America into war.

Senior U.S. Defense official Douglas Macgregor, who was recently installed at the Pentagon by partisan loyalists of President Donald Trump, has come under fire for saying that American politicians become “very, very rich” by supporting Israel, with pro-Israeli organizations calling his remarks “antisemitic.”
...

Macgregor, a retired Army Col., went even further than Omar, bluntly claiming that politicians who support Israel are only driven by money, and that the pro-Israeli lobby in the U.S. is trying to drag America into war.

Macgregor was appointed adviser to Trump’s new acting secretary of defense, Christopher Miller.  His appointment is part of a purge of professional, non-partisan leaders in the Department of Defense, and their replacement by fervent Trump loyalists, which has been taking place since Trump was projected to have lost the presidential election to Joe Biden last week.

Macgregor’s remarks regarding the influence of the pro-Israeli lobby in the U.S. were first reported on Friday by CNN. The network quoted an interview Macgregor gave last year, in which he said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “has his hands out for money from the Israeli lobby, the Saudis and others.”

Speaking about Trump’s former national security adviser, John Bolton, who like Pompeo is a strong supporter of the Israeli right-wing and the settlements enterprise, Macgregor said: “Mr. Bolton has become very, very rich and is in the position he’s in because of his unconditional support for the Israeli lobby. He is their man on the ground, in the White House.”

When asked whether politicians who are known for their support for Israel, such as Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), want to go to war with Iran, Macgregor replied: “You have to look at the people that donate to those individuals.”

He added that AIPAC (Oma. huom. American Israel Public Affairs Committee) has “enormous quantities of money that over many years have cultivated an enormous influence in power in Congress.”
...

Slamming Macgregor’s remarks, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), one of the most prominent Jewish members of Congress, wrote on Twitter: “The only appropriate response from this White House to these antisemitic comments from someone with a distorted idea of the Holocaust must be a swift firing and complete condemnation.”

Echoing Deutch’s sentiments, Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League warned that “There is no place in our government for these ugly, antisemitic conspiracy theories that wealthy Jews are controlling the government.”

AIPAC, considered the most powerful pro-Israel lobby in the U.S., called Macgregor’s comments “ill-informed and illegitimate” and said that his words will not deter the organization from continuing its work.

Christians United for Israel, the largest grassroots pro-Israeli organization in the U.S., also denounced Macgregor’s comments, writing in a tweet: ” Douglas Macgregor’s comments regarding Israel are repugnant. Antisemitism has no place in the US government.” The organization has been supportive of many of President Trump’s policies regarding Israel over the past four years.

Surprise exodus of Jewish Americans moving to once-hostile UAE

When Elie Abadie was in his Upper East Side home watching the signing of the historic Abraham Accords — the peace treaty between the United Arab Emirates and Israel — on TV in September, he had no idea he’d be living in the UAE some two months later. After all, the UAE had historically been so hostile to Jews that Israelis were once barred from even visiting. But last earlier this month he moved with his wife, Estie, to Dubai, where he is now the senior rabbi for the Jewish Council of the Emirates.

“I realized this is the place to be,” the Orthodox Abadie, 59, told The Post, looking out from his Dubai penthouse overlooking the Palm Jumeirah, a glitzy artificial island studded with soaring luxe skyscrapers.

The peace treaty with Israel has paved the way for the UAE’s known Jews — numbering around 300 or so, according to Abadie — to “come out of the shadows and proudly display their Jewishness.”

Visiting Dubai Is Like Standing on the Sidelines of a Gang Rape

Dubai is one of the toughest, most well-known centers of modern slavery and human trafficking. Beneath the glittering facade of a paradise in the desert lurks a cruel and lethal system of recruitment, transportation, transfer, kidnaping and defrauding of human beings – mostly women – by means of the threat of force, or the actual use of force, as well as other types of coercion. The purpose of the system is exploitation for the purpose of prostitution, other types of sexual exploitation, forced labor or employment in conditions of slavery.
...

The European Parliament also announced this year – a few months before the festive peace agreement was signed and the festival of tourism and cooperative projects between Israel and the UAE began – that “many countries in the Middle East are not implementing the international standards to fight human trafficking. Countries such as Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Lebanon are considered to be the worst offenders … The most alarming development that we have witnessed is the trafficking of women for slavery.”

An investigation conducted last year that was broadcast on Greek television exposed the violence and crime taking place with the knowledge of the authorities. Its editors estimated that in Dubai alone 45,000 women are trapped in the prostitution network. Not only women are traded there, but so are many teenage boys, who provide sexual services to clients of prostitution from all over the world, visitors to the “Las Vegas of the Middle East.”

In other words, one of the main cooperative projects involving Israel and the UAE that has recently begun is the provision of clients of prostitution on the part of Israel, and prostitution services on the part of Dubai. Apparently many of the Israeli men who are traveling to Dubai these days in the guise of businessmen are aware of that. But anyone who is unwilling to collaborate with the exploitation industry should be aware: A trip to Dubai, and certainly work “with Dubai,” is like standing on the sidelines during the course of a gang rape.
