WOW, imagine my surprise when reading this article. Israel trying to influence various nations to get the result they want?
FAKEBOOK is run by the Zionist Jew Zuckerberg, which makes me somewhat dubious to believe that FB is actually doing anything about this intrusion.
Facebook busts Israeli influence campaign that targeted elections on 3 continentsLike someone already said, all of this Russiagate BS was actually a front for Israel to select our presidential candidates.
Facebook has uncovered an extensive Israeli-run political influence campaign that has been ‘changing reality according to clients' wishes’ targeting elections in African, Latin America and Asian nations for years.
The social media platform has shut down 65 Facebook accounts, 161 pages, 23 groups, 12 events, and four Instagram accounts run out of Israel, citing its policy on “coordinated inauthentic behavior.”...
The fake accounts masqueraded as locals and local news outlets, pumping out glowing stories and smear jobs on candidates in local elections, including allegedly leaked information. The campaign primarily targeted Nigeria, Tunisia, Angola, Senegal, Togo, and Niger, though “some activity” focused on Southeast Asia and Latin America, according to a Facebook post by Nathaniel Gleicher, the company’s head of cybersecurity policy, on Thursday.
The Israelis had invested considerable time and money into the deception, dropping about $812,000 on ads over the past seven years in dollars, shekels, and Brazilian reals. This is compared to roughly $100,000 mainstream media claims was spent on ‘Russian bots’ to allegedly sway the 2016 US presidential election.
Facebook has been much less forthcoming about this particular campaign than some previous mass takedowns, perhaps because the culprits aren’t linked to Russia or Iran, while Facebook regularly cooperates with the Israeli government to have politically inconvenient accounts deleted.
“The individuals behind this network attempted to conceal their identities,” Gleicher complained, refusing to speculate about their motives beyond a hint that the campaign “may be commercial or political or for some other strategic goal.” Some of the manipulation was traced to the Archimedes Group, a shadowy Israeli corporation whose website boasts that it can “change reality according to our clients’ wishes.”
With Tubby the Grifter in the WH, Israel has the best POTUS for Israel since the traitor LBJ.
