The right-wing Israeli group participated in a hearing of the Knesset Education Committee to promote government censorship of Breaking the Silence.
On Wednesday, right-wing Israeli group Ad Kan announced on Facebook that its members partook in the Knesset Education Committee meeting to advocate barring Breaking the Silence and other left-leaning Israeli groups from the Israeli education system.
Ad Kan has risen to prominence as a result of the Uvda television show, which showed right-wing Israelis infiltrating anti-occupation activists in the South Hebron Hills to expose their alleged ties to the Palestinian Authority.
Ad Kan’s post reads:
Representatives of Ad Kan took part in the Knesset Education Committee hearing. During the hearing we presented the findings that our activists exposed, amongst which was footage of Alon Liel and others members of Breaking the Silence discussing how they should promote international efforts against Israel and Israelis. We made it clear that the current situation in which anti-Israeli organizations are incorporated into education programs and are giving talks to students is beyond comprehension. These are subversive organizations that active in creating national pressure on Israel so that Israel must change its policies. These organizations are using Israel's democracy to put into motion anti-democratic processes and force their agenda and perspective on the Israeli public. These organizations should not be given a free platform in the Israeli education system.
Exposing these anti-Israeli organizations and raising awareness of their methods is the first step in a public struggle against them.
Ad Kan has recently started working with members of the Knesset and governmental bodies to ensure that these organizations are not abusing freedom of action in the state of Israel in order to harm it.
We at Ad Kan will continue to act for the benefit of the state of Israel.
