Al Jazeera’s investigation series on the Israel lobby in the U.S
Leaked by the Electronic Intifada, https://electronicintifada.net/. The Qatari Al Jazeera network opted to censor their investigation series after years of production.
To get unprecedented access to the Israel lobby’s inner workings, undercover reporter “Tony” posed as a pro-Israel volunteer in Washington. The resulting film exposes the efforts of Israel and its lobbyists to spy on, smear and intimidate U.S. citizens who support Palestinian human rights, especially BDS– the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. It shows that Israel’s semi-covert black-ops government agency, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, is operating this effort in collusion with an extensive network of U.S.-based organizations. These include the Israel on Campus Coalition, The Israel Project and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Censored by Qatar, the film was suppressed after the government of Qatar came under intense pressure not to release it by the Israeli government- whose influence and antics the film exposes.
