Alwaght- Israel has created a secretive firm to launch an online propaganda campaign against the regime’s opponents internationally.
The Strategic Affairs Ministry created the corporation to carry out “mass awareness activities” to counteract what it describes as “the delegitimization campaign” against Israel internationally, Haaretz reports.
According to the Israeli newspaper, Among the shareholders are regime's former UN ambassador Dore Gold and ex-generals Amos Yadlin and Yaakov Amidror.
The group, named Kella Shlomo, received $37 million from the Netanyahu government, and reportedly expects to raise the same amount through international donors, from “philanthropic sources” and “pro-Israel organizations."
According to a government resolution report obtained by the media watchdog Seventh Eye, the funding is to “implement part of the ministry’s activities related to the struggle against the phenomena of delegitimization and boycotts against the State of Israel."
In late December, Tel Aviv regime approved plans to dedicate $75 million to fight the international Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
According to a list of the company’s shareholders and directors, former UN ambassador Dore Gold, Yossi Kuperwasser, the former director general of the Strategic ministry, Sagi Balasha, the former director general of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) and Ehud Danoch, the former Israeli consul general in Los Angeles are part of the company.
The organization will carry out “engagement in the online space,” targeting social media because “the opponent directs most of his conscious and moving efforts to this space,” the ministry’s legal advisor Liat Glazer wrote in regime's documents obtained by the Seventh Eye.
