Weekend long read

1) The INSS reports on a ‘Russian Influence Campaign Against Israel’.

“Since the October 7th massacre, Russia has stepped up its semi-covert disinformation attacks against Israel, as part of its global Doppelganger influence campaign, which began in 2022. These attacks align with Russia’s official stance, which has remained hostile to Israel in recent months. They signal a strategic shift in the Kremlin’s approach, by grouping Israel with countries it perceives as enemies.”

2) At the JCPA, Dr. Irwin J. Mansdorf discusses ‘Hamas’s Propaganda Videos’.

“Hamas hostage videos are only a tiny part of a more comprehensive and longstanding use by Hamas of video to produce psychological effects designed to further their military and ideological goals. Some videos are used to bolster their domestic image, some to create fear and confusion among Israelis, and some, as in the case of the hostage videos, to manipulate public opinion to achieve psychologically what they cannot achieve militarily.”

3) At WINEP, Gabriel Epstein explains ‘Gaza by the Numbers’.

“The Hamas-Israel war that began on October 7 has become a source of international tension, debate, and dispute. One of the key data points in war reporting has been the count of fatalities. Institute researcher Gabriel Epstein has investigated the methodology used by Gaza authorities to measure the number of deaths in the conflict. His two studies revealed complexities and contradictions in accurately reporting the civilian and military losses.”

4) MEMRI reports that ‘Senior Iranian Regime Officials Warn Of Iran’s Coming Nuclear Breakout’.

“Since Iran’s April 14, 2024 drone and missile attack on Israel, named “True Promise,” by the Iranian regime, and against the backdrop of statements by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director general Rafael Grossi that Iran is “weeks rather than months” away from having enough enriched uranium to develop a nuclear bomb, Iranian regime officials, particularly those from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), have stepped up their warnings of coming Iranian nuclear breakout, that is, production of a nuclear bomb.”

5) At the Algemeiner, Justin Amler argues that ‘Ignoring UNRWA’s Problems Will Only Condemn Future Generations of Palestinians’.

“UNRWA remains a serious problem, and by ignoring and whitewashing the evidence of its collusion with Hamas, future Palestinian generations will continue to be condemned to an education indoctrinated with hatred and violence rather than peaceful coexistence.”

6) NGO Monitor reports on ‘The NGO Network Orchestrating Antisemitic Incitement on American Campuses’.

“In the wake of October 7, the exponential rise in antisemitic violence, incitement, intimidation, and harassment on and around campuses in the United States is not the product of spontaneous protests of individuals. Rather, they are tightly coordinated and well-funded by a network of radical and often antisemitic non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Within Our Lifetime, US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, and Samidoun. Under the guise of human rights and justice, these NGOs work to undermine the economic, military and other ties between US and Israel, and to besiege and divide the US Jewish community. 

All of these groups have supported and justified the October 7th massacre, as well as other attacks. Many of the NGOs in the network are directly linked to designated Palestinian terror organizations.”
