ASTROTURFING: Pro-Israel group paid students $250 each to attend “March for Israel” event in D.C.
By Ethan Huff // Nov 17, 2023

To drum up more support for Israel, a group called Israel on Campus Coalition (ICC) offered $250 to each college student who agreed to show up to a pro-Israel rally that took place on November 14 in Washington, D.C.

Described as "one of the largest pro-Israel rallies in history," the event was sponsored by the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

In order to be reimbursed for travel expenses, students from all across the country who agreed to participate were told they simply needed to fill out a brief form and voila: the money would appear in their accounts straightaway.

"Thank you for all your requests to attend the March for Israel Rally," reads the "Microgrant Application" page of ICC about the program. "We are pleased to announce that we have successfully allocated funding to help thousands of students attend the event."

The same website explains that the November 14 rally is only just the beginning. After November 20, ICC plans to "resume grants for pro-Israel initiatives on campus."

"If you are looking for transportation to the November 14th rally in Washington, D.C., please get in touch with your local Hillel, Chabad, or Federation."

Pro-Palestine events canceled as pro-Israel lobby continues astroturfing campaign

Keep in mind that pro-Palestine rallies are being canceled left and right, especially in Zionist-controlled areas like Florida where such acts of "antisemitism" are considered to be a form of terrorism.

Meanwhile, Israel is paying people to fake-support the Israeli side of the war and almost nobody is talking about it.

It turns out that pro-Israel groups have been doing this type of thing deceptively for many years. Al Jazeera released an undercover documentary in 2016 revealing that pro-Israel groups were spending tens of thousands of dollars even back then to stage pro-Israel "protests" on American college campuses.

The documentary explains how pro-Israel groups were specifically targeting the on-campus group Students for Justice in Palestine, this being the very same group that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis banned in violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Van Jones appeared at the more recent astroturfing protest on November 14, during which he praised Jews for supposedly leading the civil rights movements in the United States. After that, he emphasized that he is a "peace guy" who "prays for peace" on all sides.

"No more rockets from Gaza and no more bombs falling down on the people of Gaza," Van Jones said. "God, protect the children."

As Van Jones continued to talk about how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is claiming that "hate" crimes against Jews have increased by 400 percent in recent weeks, he was booed loudly as the pro-Israel crowd started chanting, "No ceasefire!" – watch below:
