Amnesty International Says 'Chilling Attack' on Staffer Using Israeli-Made Spyware May Be Part of 'Much Broader Surveillance Campaign'

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

An investigation published Wednesday by the London-based Amnesty International revealed that one of the group's staffers was "targeted by a sophisticated surveillance campaign, in what the organization suspects was a deliberate attempt to spy on its staff by a government hostile to its work," using a tool developed by the Israeli cyber intelligence firm NSO Group.

Israeli intelligence using Pegasus spyware to identify and track supporters of human rights GLOBALLY? According to this report, all you have to do is to respond in any way, to any (faux) appeal to support human rights, and they will have you in their sights - forever. This discovery by Amnesty International should be given the widest, and sustained warning to the U.S. progressive community

Russia may meddle with our democracy, but Israel meddles with our basic rights to think and act upon our conscience. To me, this is far more egregious.
