A fake pro-Israel protest manufactured by US-based lobbying groups has been exposed in an exclusive clip from a censored Al Jazeera documentary on Israel’s influence in the US.

The release of the much-anticipated US version of the undercover documentary ‘The Lobby’ has been stalled since the UK version, which aired in 2017, revealed Israel’s influence within the Labor party and its role in drumming up accusations of anti-Semitism.

The US version is yet to be broadcast, but the delay has prompted segments to be leaked.

The Grayzone Project’s Max Blumenthal released a new segment Tuesday, revealing that the US think tanks arranged a fake protest to disrupt a Students for Palestine national conference in 2016.

The practice is known as astroturfing and aims to create an illusion of dissent where there is none, in turn creating press coverage to further the agenda of the perpetrators.

The footage features Noah Pollak, executive director of the Emergency Committee on Israel, along with fellows from the Hoover Institution. A fellow named Marshall reveals Pollak’s views on students who support Palestine, recounting how he told them,

“Look, there are these jihadis who basically support suicide bombing, and they’re on a campus and you have to stop them.”

“This is astroturfing,” he said, and admitted his boss told him attendance was “mandatory.” The video shows the protesters being briefed to stay on message and emphasize that the student group is a “hate group.”

The staged protest includes Pollak shouting a number of claims about Palestinians, including, “They kill women, they kill children.


‘The Lobby’ reveals US groups work in tandem with elements of Israel’s military intelligence and Israel advocates like casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, the Grayzone Project reports.

Israel has gone to great lengths to disrupt support for Palestine and the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls for an end to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.

An earlier leaked clip from the documentary revealed an anonymous website targeting students for supporting Palestine was funded by Adam Milstein, a US investor and top donor to the Israel lobby.
