U.S. Ally Caught Pushing Propaganda Into The Media

Likud Party member and Israeli government minister Amichai Chikli has spearheaded an effort to disseminate pro-Israeli narratives throughout the corporate media in the United States.

According to a story by The Guardian, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, summoned Chikli to advise political leaders on how to handle the growing wave of anti-war demonstrations by students on US campuses.

Relaunching the contentious “Concert”—originally known as Kela Shlomo in Hebrew. The program’s purported goal is to carry out “mass consciousness activities,” mostly directed toward the US and Europe, that the Israeli regime has classified as such. This specific version is a component of a broader public relations campaign targeting US universities, with the aim of altering the legal definition of antisemitism in the US.

The concert is currently called Voices of Israel. In the past, it worked with organizations spearheading an effort to pass “anti-BDS” state legislation, which penalizes Americans for participating in boycotts or other peaceful protests against Israel.

The most recent version of the program is an intentional, frequently clandestine attempt by the Jewish state to retaliate against protests at universities, human rights groups, and other dissident voices.

Recently, Voices has been working with non-profits and other entities that frequently withhold their donor data. From October to May, Chikli managed a budget of at least $8.6 million for government campaigning with the aim of influencing public opinion.

The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy, or ISGAP, an American pro-Zionist organization that has collaborated with Chikli’s ministry, just won a significant battle. According to reports, the Israeli organization in charge of running the concert provided the majority of the funds for the ISCAP in 2018. During a Palm Beach Country Club event on April 7, ISGAP exclaimed about winning a congressional PR battle.

Here, they were alluding to Republican-led hearings, in which Congressman Elise Stefanik of New York led a series of questions aimed at questioning notable university presidents, including former Harvard President Claudine Gay and her colleagues at other prestigious universities.

Gay ultimately had to retire earlier this year due to accusations of plagiarism.

“Our revelation that all these universities, starting from Harvard, are accepting a lot of money from Qatar was the reason behind all these hearings,” bragged Natan Sharansky, a former Israeli member who filled Chikli’s position and is now the chair of the ISGAP. Sharansky notified the group’s backers that more than a billion people had seen Stefanik interrogate university representatives.

Because of claims that antisemitism is the root of protests against Israel’s human rights record, the ISGAP has managed to exert influence over congressional investigations into universities. The organization has actively participated in the push to enact new legislation that would expand the definition of antisemitism to include expressions critical of the state of Israel.

Other Voices-affiliated American organizations have undertaken a number of projects aimed at bolstering support for the state of Israel. A partner organization is the National Black Empowerment Council (NBEC), which released an open letter expressing support for Israel, signed by prominent black Democratic lawmakers. Under the direction of former Israeli military intelligence and Voices officials, CyberWell is a pro-Israel anti-disinformation outfit that has positioned itself as an official “trusted partner” of TikTok and Meta, helping the two social media platforms with content assessment and editing. According to recent CyberWell research, Meta should ban the catchphrase “Palestine shall be free from the river to the sea.”
