Leaked scenes from the censored Al Jazeera undercover documentary, “The Lobby – USA,” purportedly show an Israel lobbyist astroturfing an anti-BDS “student” protest at the 2016 Students for Justice in Palestine national conference.

The Grayzone Project has released scenes from an investigative Al Jazeera undercover documentary, “The Lobby – USA,” whose publication was blocked by the government of Qatar under Israel lobby pressure.
The footage reveals how Emergency Committee on Israel Executive Director Noah Pollak and the right-wing Hoover Institution organized an astroturfed a protest aimed at disrupting the 2016 Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) national conference.
According to one Hoover Institution campus fellow, “This is the first foot soldier activity that I think we’ve been forced to do.”

“It’s a chance to shout at Arabs,” another fellow interjected.
