Hasbara,” literally “explaining,” is the term used in Israel for government propaganda aimed at overseas audiences.

A video accompanying the Ynet report shows rows of students beavering away at computers in a hall with a sign on its door saying “Advocacy Room” in English. In Hebrew, it says “Hasbara war room.”

Last year a “covert” Israeli government initiative came to light which planned to pay students for spreading propaganda online.

“The whole point of such efforts is to look like they are unofficial, just every day people chatting online,” Israel expert Dena Shunra told The Electronic Intifada.

“But in fact, these are campaigns of organized lying, orchestrated with government-approved talking points and crowdsourced volunteers and stipend recipients,” Shunra added.

“War Room” to Sell Gaza Massacre on Facebook

Unlike those shills, no one pays me to say anything about these immoral land grabs and massacres. It’s only my conscience and ability to rationally analyze the evidence that drives this blog.
