In new pinkwashing recruitment campaign, Israel offers free travel for propaganda services

The story of the floundering Brand Israel advertising campaign continues. An Israeli government ministry has established a propaganda website called Hasbara.gov.il a Hebrew word often translated as propaganda. A notice was recently published on the site asking for volunteer candidates eligible to conduct public diplomacy activities abroad. The volunteers will not be eligible for any remuneration apart from costs of travel, daily expenses and insurance.

The advert is also the latest episode in Israels cynical pinkwashing strategy, which was powerfully criticised by American academic Sarah Schulman in the New York Times this week. The ministrys advert says it is looking particularly for minority members and representatives of the gay community to argue Israels case abroad.
