Al-Aqsa attacks: UAE social media influencers jump on Israel's hasbara bandwagon

With the state's implicit support, Twitter users are twisting, selecting and reframing facts to serve Israel's cause at the expense of Palestinians

The gap between the reality on the ground in Jerusalem and how Israel spins it is widening by the day. To that end, Israel’s vast PR network is receiving support from what at first glance might seem an unconventional place: the United Arab Emirates.

Upon closer inspection, however, Emirati support for Israel’s excessive police violence against legitimate protesters is not coincidental. Even before the Abraham Accords, which formalised bilateral relations between the UAE and Israel, Abu Dhabi showed ideological synergies with Israel’s increasingly far-right positions and fear-based narratives, which aim to justify the suppression of Arab civil society.
The Palestinian cause has been sacrificed on the altar of regime security
Yet, while the UAE’s quietist approach to the Palestinian cause might have been deafening for years, the Abraham Accords may now be unleashing the Gulf state’s (dis)information networks to blindly support Israel’s long-standing tradition of selective storytelling.

Under the banner of hasbara (from the Hebrew “to explain”), Israel has for decades successfully won over hearts and minds in the West for an occupation that has become harder and harder to justify. Israel declares activists to be “terrorists”, frames critics as “antisemites”, and labels evidence for Israeli violence against women and children as “fake news”.

Although Israel has at least since 1967 not been the David in this struggle against the oft-invoked “Arab Goliath”, excessive political, structural and security-sector violence against unprotected civilians is being justified in Israel through fear and self-victimisation.

Turning a blind eye

Hasbara has been primarily produced for western consumption, with the so-called Arab street declared unable to be won over - until recently. Israel’s official Twitter accounts, such as @IsraelArabic or @IsraelintheGulf, had mostly gone unnoticed in the Arab world, and the Palestinian cause had long been the only unifying element in the otherwise divided Arab world - until recently.

Few believed that the Abraham Accords would provide the Emirates with leverage over Israel to help the Palestinian cause. Most analysts expected that Abu Dhabi would continue to turn a blind eye to Palestinian suffering, but it still came as a surprise that the Emiratis would go so far as to jump on Israel’s hasbara bandwagon, twisting, selecting and reframing facts to serve Israel’s cause at the expense of Palestinians.

What has been most remarkable is that UAE influencers - tweeting with the license of the UAE government - have opted to praise Israel’s behaviour at a time when armed Israeli police have besieged and stormed al-Aqsa Mosque, injuring peaceful worshippers inside Islam’s third-holiest site during the holy days of Ramadan.

Emirati influencer Hamad Alhosani chose to retweet @IsraelArabic’s video falsely accusing protesters of having been instrumentalised by Hamas, stating in his own words: “May God protect the Temple Mount from the tampering of terrorism.” Influencer Munther al-Shehhi also retweeted @IsraelArabic, saying: “Thank you, Israel in Arabic, for clarifying the truth.”

Another UAE influencer, Hassan Sajwani, responded to local Emirati tweets under the hashtag #SaveSheikhJarrah with whataboutism about a savage attack at a school in Afghanistan. He continued by asking cynically: “Why can’t the Palestinians [sic] protestors just vacate #AlAqsaMosque and simply go home?

On Thursday a number of progressive Democratic spoke out against Israel’s ongoing attacks on Palestine.
“How many Palestinians have to die for their lives to matter?” asked Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the only Palestinian member of congress, in an emotional speech.
“If our own State Department can’t even bring itself to acknowledge the killing of Palestinian children is wrong, well, I will say it for the millions of Americans who stand with me against the killing of innocent children, no matter their ethnicity, or faith,” she continued.


A number of the speeches referenced the vast amount of military aid that the U.S. provides Israel.
“We cannot remain silent when our government sends $3.8bn of military aid to Israel that is used to demolish Palestinian homes, imprison Palestinian children, and displace Palestinian families,” said Rep. Ayanna Presley (D-MA). “A budget is a reflection of our values.”
“We are anti-war. We are anti-occupation. And we are anti-apartheid. Period,” declared Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO). “If this body is looking for something productive to do with $3 billion, instead of funding a military that polices and kills Palestinians, I have some communities in St. Louis city and St. Louis county where that money can go. Where we desperately need investment, where we are hurting, where we need help. Let us prioritize funding there.”


The speeches came after a number of pro-Israel Democrats like Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA) and Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) took to the House floor to defend Israel’s attacks.
“Instead of condemning blatant crimes against humanity and human rights abuses many members of congress have instead fallen back on a blanketed statement defending Israel’s air strikes against civilians under the guise of self-defense,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“This is our business. Because we are playing a role in it,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “This is not about both sides. This is about an imbalance of power.”

Earlier this week 25 House Democrats signed a letter calling on the Biden administration to pressure Israel and stop the forced eviction of Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem.

Yes.... I forgot.. there is freedom of speech in UAE... Lol


Have seen the Twitter handle of Dr Waseem Yousef the official Mullah of the UAE ruling class... A Wolf in Sheikh clothing... Wearing his "Sunni Beard"... While being a devout Zionist...

All his tweets are against the Palestinian resistance not one single one against Israel.....

I am... It's Palestinians versus Israel and the betrayal of the rest of the Arabs.

I have been on this forum longer than you.
You are bringing in stuff that don't belong here.. Stay on topic or just leave.. News from years ago or something outside of it is irrelevant to this campaign.. This is exclusively what is happening in Gaza-Israeli war thread

Don't be so angry hypocritical American. Your reputation was already shit. Now it is in ruins. Supporting your illegitimate child killing Zionist friends against the Palestinians and lecturing others about religious freedoms and Uyghur genocide LOL You think the world isn't seeing all this. You are the enabler and supporter of an apartheid state.
