Hey guys, just thought Id share an anomaly I came across.....

The other day I decided to go on YouTube and watch some videos about the protests going on all over the middle east. I usually never watch news or footage from the middle east on that site (don't know why)

But this day I decided to take a look. As I started watching a video about the mass slaughter going on in Syria right now, an AD appeared on the screen, one that I never saw before. It said "Do you hate Israel?" "Click yes or no"

Now I thought this was rather strange, considering the subject matter of the videos that I was viewing....So I decided to keep going and watch another video, this time the protests in Libya....right away another AD appeared on the page, this one said "Click here to show your support for Israel and the US"

Now let me be clear, I have nothing against Israelis and the Jewish people, hell I almost married a nice Jewish girl.

What I cannot stand is this Zionist propaganda that has infiltrated every forum, website, and discussion on the web.

How come we rarely see or hear news about the Israeli peace groups that are composed of Israelis who are against the entire Palestinian conflict, and have marches and protests right in Israel?

Why does it seem that whenever someone tries to discuss the atrocities that the Zionists are committing, someone always infiltrates the conversation, tries to derail it, and generally discredit the OP?

Is there an entire division of Israeli forces that monitor the internet, place these absurd Ads on different websites and actively try to discredit anyone who does not agree with their Zionist agenda?

I think there is truth to this, especially after seeing these Ads pop up, seemingly out of nowhere, Ads that I have never seen before until I started browsing YouTube for news of the uprisings in the ME.

Thoughts? Comments?

I have never seen the ads you speak of but considering the source I am not surprised. Get yourself some ad block/script block for your browser and you are all set.

Blame Google.

The ads you see on YT and elsewhere are determined by cookies containing info about the types of sites you visit. Since you have started a thread which basically says you don't go to any Israel related sites, and are complaining about Israeli "propaganda" on the web, it seems fairly obvious that you visit anti-Israeli sites on a regular basis.

Not judging, just saying.

Thats a preety bold question and yes it definetly seems like propaganda. It's kinda creepy that there would be a question like that and considering that you would click on "yes", you probly get put on some kind of list.

Really? Please show me where in my thread I said "that I don't visit any Israel related sites"

And when is watching the ME protests an "Anti-Israeli" thing to do?

Would love if you cleared that up.

That was my first thought as well... I mean I have never saw an Ad like this before..

"Do you hate Israel" "Click yes or no"

Right away I figured this was some sort of data gathering or IP recording where if you clicked yes, you'd be forwarded to a homeland security watch list.

Disconcerting to say the least

Have a strong feeling this thread has now been locked and is un-viewable to ATS members.


Keep up the great work!

Well, i see this thread on ATS. The thing is that i doubt that it is major discovery. There is propaganda cyber war and Israel got its own share just as Israeli opponents do. If there is government program - i am sure that there is.
Again, just as on the opposite lines of the front.
My advise - not to trust anything blindly. Both sides use manipulations, semi-truths and play on emotions. Gather info from multiple credible sources and decide for yourself.
Warning - i am from Israel so may be part of this propaganda.

Trust no one , truth is out there and ctr.

I'm sure all sides push their propaganda twisting truths and half truths into something they are not.. I take the level of propaganda to indicate the dire situation the world is in at the moment..

And it is not new.. right by me is a set of radio masts that where used for black ops broadcasting across Europe.. they where very successful delivering the huge amount of disinformation..

or not....makes me really wonder about the ownership and administration of this website. See right thru you guys, makes me pretty disgusted.

Go ahead unlock it temporarily to give the illusion of transparency. Deny ignorance? Biggest bunch of crap I have ever heard.

LOL! "Anomaly".. Ahahahah!

These are simply ads that get to you because the page you are viewing is holding lots of keywords regarding Israel, Palestine or whatever. It's just a way for YouTube and other companies to be able to match similar ads to whatever page you are viewing.

Most of these ads are private made, or even worse, corporation made. They will simply offer you some stupid way to get updated with news from Israel by using some bogus SMS text service which will drain your pockets, just like those astrology and weather services.

If these ads were there to recruit you to the IDF and send you into combat then yeah you could safely say this is a governmental aided propaganda.


Not to mention there is plenty and even more propaganda on the other side of the fence.

Notice my OP not only covers ads but the Israeli dis-info agents present everywhere (even on this site)

Which is also 100% true regarding actions made by Muslim terrorists. I cannot even count the times threads on ATS got derailed only because some people refused to believe the news they read.
And how many times do people on ATS completely discredit news from reliable sources only because they believe something to be disinfo made by blah blah blah agents and so on?

The real situation is that you can't even post horrible events related to Israel on ATS without being automatically accused of playing into the Zionist agenda and your story automatically turns into a false flag operation made by the evil Zionists.


Just because you believe someone to be a disinfo agent it doesn't mean he is. If I was to label anyone who blindly follows anti-Zionism or anti-Israel opinions on ATS as disinfo agent against Israel, I'd have to label about 70% of the population around here.


Long story short: stop trying to find things to whine about.

People like you sadden me, while simultaneously proving my point. This thread was not about muslim propaganda although im sure it exists.

Your response is typical and shows how riled up people like you become as soon as anyone posts anything the least bit anti israeli.

Whats next? You going to call me an anti-semite and call the anti-defamation league on me?

You sir are the one who is whining, and its becoming oh so unattractive. You must be made of glass because I see right thru you.

Thank you for the personal insult!

The point about Muslim propaganda was to show you it exists as you already know. Since you already know it does, I can't figure out why you would like to open a thread about the Israeli propaganda while you know there is the same propaganda for the other side.

Blah blah, if I had a penny for every time I heard "Your response is typical". . .
I gave you a perfect explanation for the YouTube ad "anomaly" as you put it, while assessing the situation as it is - not every pro-Israeli post is made by a disinfo agent. I havn't derailed anything.
It is you who started the whole 'people like you sadden me' cliche.


Whats next? You going to call me an anti-semite and call the anti-defamation league on me?

No, I'm going to address your points and pinpoint your logical flaws until you burst from frustration.
Pretty amusing how you try to put me in a position of a raging poster while throwing the first insult and constantly assuming I'm going to respond in a certain way while not even thanking me for showing you the light for your YouTube anomaly.


You sir are the one who is whining, and its becoming oh so unattractive. You must be made of glass because I see right thru you.

I don't think someone that cannot even fathom how internet ads work can see right through someone on the other side of the planet only by reading his replies.

Trying to stay on topic, if anyone has an Android phone/tablet there is an app on the android app market called "Countries of the world" by Socratica LLC, look up Germany...you get Germany...look up Spain...you get Spain...look up USA and see what you get.
