The truths that won't be heard, by Alain Gresh (Le Monde diplomatique - English edition, September 2018)
Kleinfeld’s contacts told him they were spying on US citizens with the help of Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs, founded in 2006, which reports directly to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. One official said: ‘We are a different government working on foreign soil, [so] we have to be very, very cautious.’ And indeed some of the things they do could be subject to prosecution under US law.

To discredit the messenger, as the documentary reveals, the pro-Israel lobby has built up a spy network over the last few years to gather information on opponents’ private lives, careers and political convictions. Baime said: ‘The research operation is very high-tech. When I got here a few years ago the budget was $3,000. Today it’s like a million and a half, or more. Probably it’s two million at this point. I don’t even know, it’s huge. It’s a massive budget.’ He and his colleagues are keen to stay invisible: ‘We do it securely and anonymously. That’s the key.’
Vaknin-Gil admitted that to gather information, ‘we have FDD. We have others working on this.’ The Foundation for the Defence of Democracies (FDD) is a conservative thinktank that has played an important role in the recent rapprochement between the UAE and Israel. It took part in the 2017 campaign against Qatar and Al Jazeera, which was accused of being a destabilising force in the region. Under US law, organisations and individuals working for foreign governments must register with the Department of Justice. Would the DOJ dare take the FDD to court for failing to register (9)?

Impatient with temporary deescalation deal, Hamas demands immediate Qatari funding in meeting with Egyptian delegation | MadaMasr
Israel, however, remains afraid that the Qatari money intended to pay administrative employee salaries will be directed toward Hamas’ military operation, a fear that the Egyptian delegation communicated in Tuesday’s meeting, according to the source. There are approximately 450-600 Hamas administrative employees also working for the Qassam Brigades, its military wing,  all of whom Israel has refused to pay, according to the source.

Free Nawaf al-Rasheed - Voice Project
Al-Rasheed’s arrest comes amidst a recent crackdown on freedom of expression inside Saudi Arabia as well as increased targeting of Qatari citizens and fabrication of charges against them. In all circumstances, recent analyses of Saudi Interior Ministry information show that arbitrary detentions of longer than six months without court proceedings or contact with family and lawyers have become the norm.
