Israel will create a civilian infrastructure (described as ‘civil-society’) that seeks to change the present social order, usually ending in regime change, yet it operates outside of government. In other words, it is revolution by people who do not wear military uniforms. Some examples of civil-society organizations include PACs, unions, activist organizations, religious groups, and private service agencies. Activities of Israel’s ‘civil society’ will include public-relations campaigns, funding trips to Israel for opinion-leaders, and lobbying legislators.
Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, is suing Mueller for going outside the legitimate scope of investigation. Manafort was indicted on 12 counts related to unlawful financial dealings. The Special Counsel has paid particular attention to the involvement of Mr. Manafort’s company in a lobbying campaign that ended in 2014, his bank accounts and tax filings through 2014, and personal expenditures from his political consulting work, none of which have any connection whatsoever to the 2016 Trump campaign.
Israel announced it would pay African migrants living in the country illegally $3,500 each plus a free airline ticket, to return to their home countries or ‘third-world countries’, like Rwanda and Uganda.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu characterized the resettlement of African migrants in Israel as disruptive to the country’s culture and social cohesion.
