3 of the 6 hacked activists work at the Palestinian human rights groups that the Israeli government designated on October 19, 2021 as “terrorist organizations”, including @Addameer where Salah works.

The targeting occured before Israel’s designation. 3/

NEW joint investigation by @FrontLineHRD and @citizenlab reveals the hacking of four Jordanians using NSO Group’s #Pegasus spyware.
@FrontLineHRD @citizenlab This is the second report confirming the use of #Pegasus in Jordan to target human rights defenders and journalists.

Last year, @axios reported that NSO Group was negotiating a deal with the Jordanian government in to sell them new spying technology. axios.com/israeli-cyber-…
Earlier this year, @accessnow and @FrontLineHRD revealed the hacking of Jordanian human rights lawyer @Hala_Deeb whose device had been infected with #Pegasus spyware since March 2021.

Durch den #NSU20-Prozess wird klar: Es wurde nicht ausreichend gegen mglw. beteiligte Polizist*innen ermittelt, ein Netzwerk wurde nicht in Betracht gezogen, die Betroffenen weder informiert noch ernst genommen. Wir haben die Erkenntnisse der letzten Wochen zusammengestellt.🧵
Im Prozess gegen Alexander M. in Frankfurt werden die Zusammenhänge und das Ausmaß der Drohmailserien erst durch die Aussagen der Betroffenen und die Aufklärungsbemühungen der Nebenklage klar. #NSU20
Nebenklägerin Martina Renner hat den Eindruck, als hätten sich verschiedene Drohserien einen „Staffelstab“ übergeben. So habe sie zunächst Mails von der „Nationalsozialistischen Offensive“ („#NSO“) bekommen, dann vom „Staatsstreichorchester“ und anschließend vom „#NSU 2.0″.

Complete agree. This won’t be over when there’s a cease-fire in Ukraine. World has changed profoundly in the 2 yr-Covid pandemic, the Trump era & perhaps to a greater extent geopolitically even in just this last week. WE NOW ALL FULLY RE-APPRECIATE WHAT WE COULD SO EASILY LOOSE.
This re-appreciation means NONE OF US will be able to torelate thought of a Bond- movie-level-vilain-turned-basket-case, after a deranged aggression against Ukraine, could remain in any position of power & especially nuclear power. This won’t now be over until #Putin is gone.
You & @HillaryClinton are rightly hoping his so badly mistreated people or his own junta, respectively, will bring him down. I think History has shown how profound Russian social inertia really is (they’ve put up with Stalin and Putin for literally decades!).

Thread:
1. In recent weeks, #Saudi opposition, linked to extremists & to #Qatar, including Lina Al-Hathloul have been trying to once again draw attention to Loujain Al Hathloul in an effort to renew the view of her as a victim a year after her release.
reuters.com/technology/how…
2. As a reminder Loujain Al Hathloul once campaigned for women's rights to drive but once #MBS came to power and this form of lobbying & activism became irrelevant, switched to propaganda against #KSA on foreign channels in exchange for funding & fame.
3. Al Hathloul, after repeated warnings, was eventually tried & convicted for violations of relevant laws similar to the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (#FARA), which also carries criminal penalties depending on the extent of violations.

1. It was only a matter of time before #Qatar propaganda that's been in the works for years would come into conservative leaning Jewish media to attack #Israel among its staunchest defenders. The warrantless domestic police surveillance is the last straw.

jns.org/opinion/the-em…
2. #Qatar, an actual police & surveillance state, has been working for several years to portray #Israel's cybersecurity companies, such as #NSO, as the root of all evil around the globe - while working hard to acquire same or equivalent capabilities.
3. #Qatar has exploited #Israel's media, while taking advantage of chaotic and corrupt political environment where the leadership was willing to turn a blind eye to real threats from abroad & foreign influence campaigns in favor of going after domestic opposition.

Thread: Will #NSO countersue for defamation?

1. It looks like #NSO may have a colorable defamation argument against a number of parties who had accused the company's #Pegasus software of being used to hack mobile devices, knowingly causing baseless reputational damage.
2. The first on this list is none other than @JeffBezos who not only was not hacked by #MBS through Whatsapp (or by anyone at all) but COULD NOT Have been hacked by #Pegasus using that method, because that's not how Pegasus works.
3. While US prosecutors have discredited the entire premise of @JeffBezos claim, @AgnesCallamard, who, at the time was still the UN Special Rapporteur, never withdrew her report in support of her claim, relying on disinformation & refusing to retract these allegations.

1. The issue of #Israel spying on its own citizens using #NSO's #Pegasus may well be a national scandal if done illegally but has nothing to do with the allegations about the use of #NSO spyware abroad by various intelligence agencies.

israel247.org/2022/02/tous-f…
2. According to the investigation, thee warrantless surveillance was done by some #Netanyahu crony & involved his family members, #Ethiopian protesters, and assorted politicians and businessmen, presumably involved in scandals or suspected of disloyalty.
3. The context for this "revelation" that seems to have come out of the left field suddenly is #Netanyahu's recent efforts to settle various scandals and #corruption charges with the possibility running for offic of the Prime Minister again in the future.

Thread: Why is #Morocco's FM Bourita acting like a foreign agent of hostile regimes?

1. HM King Mohammed VI's visionary diplomacy resulted in the watershed breakthrough of US recognition of #Morocco's sovereignty over Sahara, a top priority for the Kingdom's interests.
2. King Mohammed VI furthermore has carefully balanced active pursuit of regional and international diplomacy with countering hostile propaganda efforts. For instance, he did not mention hostile states in his big November speech in 2021, focusing on outlining Morocco's policies.
3. King Mohammed VI's speeches on foreign relations serve as an effective roadmap for laying out the pursued of strong alliance in accordance with #Morocco's priorities. Yet FM Bourita's handling has undermined these outlined principles in an antithetical pattern of failure.

Thread: On fake human rights activism & cryptocurrency.

1. The key takeaway is not the long description of the unfortunate technical problems related to the Chivo wallet affecting users in #ElSalvador and outside of it, which is understandably a nuisance.
theblockcrypto.com/post/131452/el…
2. Rather, worth noting, is that the users are reporting identity theft, leaks, and other side issues related to the Chivo troubles not to the law enforcement but to the human rights organization Cristosal.
3. Cristosal cooperated with a consortium of human rights NGOs, many backed by #Qatar and MB, in launching a fake attack on #ElSalvador recently accusing no one in particular of somehow using #NSO #Pegasus spyware to hack journalists investigating state #corruption.

1. Same day Finnish government claims its diplomats were hacked by #NSO's #Pegasus, #Hungarian journalists are to sue the government for allegedly sing the software against them. #Qatar-funded Guardian warns it's to be a "template for other cases".
theguardian.com/world/2022/jan…
2. As I've repeated many times, it will only get worse unless measures are taken to put a stop to the coalition of interests behind the anti-#NSO anti-#Israel campaign.
3. The aim is to collapse #Israel's cybersecurity industry, monopolize intelligence gathering by pro-#Qatar interests, damage relations between #Israel and friendly states such as #UAE, #Morocco, #Hungary, and #ElSalvador, & embarrass & damage reputations of their leaders.

Thread: #Qatar's Web of #Corruption & Intrigue Implicates #Morocco's FM Nasser Bourita

1. In previous threads, I explained how Kushner's group along with assorted #Moroccan cronies has undermined #AbrahamAccords due to #Qatar backing & infiltration.
2. But the story is much worse than meets the eye. Evidence has emerged connecting some affiliates of the Kushner group with the #Moroccan traitor Jamal Ben Omar, who was hired by #Qatar to recruit American conservative Jewish agents of influence.
3. Jamal Benomar eventually got busted not only for outright #espionage on behalf of #Qatar but for hiring former US intelligence officer to hack & disseminate private information of critics, including, specifically Elliott Broidy, who is now suing #Qatar.

In late November, after receiving an iMessage alert from Apple, I learned that #NSO’s #Pegasus spyware was used to infect my phone 5 times between April and August 2021.
#NSO says it only sells #Pegasus to governments to stop criminals and terrorists, but the attacks against me and countless other activists and journalists are proof that that isn’t true. hrw.org/news/2022/01/2…
The attacks were so-called #ZeroClick attacks, which meant I didn’t do anything—like click on a link—for the attack to start. There is no way to prevent this type of attack.

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.

Extracting false confessions on non-existent crimes by torturing Palestinians, including kids has always been the zionist occupation standard.
You can watch a decent documentary on the subject in the link below.
afsc.org/video/australi…
Deranged, yet unsurprising.
The problem has NEVER been the government, which zios especially liberal ones claim.
It is in fact the people themselves.
As the "israeli" president admitted

How to check iOS devices for signs of CVE-2021-30860 / FORCEDENTRY exploitation (for context, see @citizenlab's 13.09.2021 blog). #nso #pegasus #malware #ios
Make an unencrypted iTunes backup, or use MVT (docs.mvt.re/en/latest/inde…) to decrypt an encrypted one. You can also check older backups, if you have them. (it's a good idea to make regular iTunes backups for all your devices, precisely for this reason)
Use DB Browser for SQLite (see sqlitebrowser.org) to open Manifest.db, in the root folder of the iTunes backup. Make sure you open it read-only - "File -> Open Database Read Only".

Thread:

This is one of the most disturbing foreign influence campaigns I have seen to date. Far from merely trying to intimidate particularly diaspora groups, this is a barely concealed foreign backed effort to influence US policy & to weaponize USG.
dawnmena.org/khashoggi-ban-…
1. The pro-#Qatar, pro-#Iran, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood forces behind this effort are looking to use USG to shut down rivals and critics both in other countries and in the US.
2. Members of foreign governments & their "agents" (potentially anyone who agrees with them) can be banned from traveling to the US if found to be linked to "intimidation" of "dissidents" as recommended by said pro-#Qatar, pro-MB, and pro-#Iran organizations & "civil society".

2| What caught my eye in this @guardian article was the quote:

“In Israel there is a strong political movement to make #diplomacy through #business. Business first, diplomacy later. When you make a deal together, it opens a lot of doors to diplomacy.”
3| The notion that #profits trump #consent is rather disturbing, but perfectly in line with the product- #spyware.

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

1-I was in searching of the truth behind the #Israeli spy #NSO software #Pegasus. I made contact with Ex Israeli Intelligence Service officials to find out the fact.
They informed me the information that really shocked me. The same powers were behind the propaganda news
2- Who were behind the propaganda news of Jamal Khashoggi against the KSA. Qatar & Turkey are behind spreading the fake news about NSO’s security software Pegasus. Indeed, the software exists but it’s a false information that NSO targeted the journalists and government officials.
3- #NSO software #Pegasus never hacked anyone nor they enlisted any target & neither NSO sold the software to any private or security organisation but Governments. It doesn’t work like this. In this case, NSO can’t be blamed but such states who misused the software.
For example:
