“It’s part of a pattern of how the state of Israel operates” — Asa Winstanley talks to Al Jazeera Arabic about The Archimedes Group and Israeli election subversion on Facebook

I appeared on Al Jazeera Arabic and talked to them about The Archimedes Group, the latest Israeli private enterprise busted for online fakery and election subversion.
