Despite spending millions of dollars on advertising campaigns and propaganda, Israel is losing the information war in its conflict with Palestine. Its attempts to convince Westerners to support its campaign against Palestine have been overshadowed by organic content showing the brutality of the bombings.
Pro-Israel groups have also resorted to hijacking platforms like TikTok and Twitter to undermine posts supporting Palestine. However, public polling and global demonstrations indicate that public opinion is increasingly siding with Palestine. If you’ve spent any time on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or YouTube in the past month, you’ve probably been targeted.
MintPress News’ Alan MacLeod breaks down how the government of Israel has spent millions of dollars on targeted ads aimed at Westerners, all in an attempt to whitewash a genocide.
