Former Israeli intelligence officer reported to be working in Keir Starmer's office

Keir Starmer appears to be consciously placing pro-Israeli elements and in this case a former Israeli agent in sensitive positions inside the Labour Party

The opposition Labour Party under Keir Starmer’s direction appears to be shifting ever closer to Israel and pro-Zionist causes, this time by employing a former Israeli intelligence officer.

According to the specialist online publication, The Electronic Intifada (which covers the Israeli-Palestinian conflict), Assaf Kaplan has been recruited by the Labour Party to help manage and improve the party’s social media operations.

According to the Electronic Intifada, Kaplan is a former officer in Unit 8200, an intelligence wing of the Israeli military.

Unit 8200’s core mission is to collect signals intelligence and decrypt intercepted encrypted communications.

Electronic Intifada claims it has established that Kaplan served in Unit 8200 from May 2009 to November 2013, initially working as an intelligence analyst before getting promoted to officer level.   

The job now occupied by Kaplan was advertised by the labour Party in September 2020 and he started work three months later, a source reportedly informed the Electronic Intifada.

Kaplan’s full job title is “Social Listening and Organizing Manager”, which mostly involves monitoring online conversations about Labour Party policies and positions.

The former Israeli intelligence officer is reportedly working inside the office of party leader, Keir Starmer, thus adding to worries about Labour’s profound pro-Zionist shift under the latter’s leadership.
