“Israel stands at the frontline of the struggle against global terrorism, and those who lead the military struggle against terrorism are the IDF and the security forces. Attempts to slander our soldiers are unacceptable in and of themselves, but the attempt to collect intelligence on them is unbearable – and is taken care of by bodies authorized to do so.”
Ad Kan is a sister organization of the extreme right-wing settler organization, The Samaria Settlers’ Committee, which is funded in part by taxpayers’ money and is currently under investigation by the Ministry of Justice.
This organization previously provided manipulatively edited materials to Channel 2, as part of a campaign to separate between Palestinians and Jews on public buses in the West Bank. Following the broadcast, the materials were found to be based on recordings provide by Ad Kan. Through a hidden camera, Ad Kan moles filmed their attempt to prompt Palestinian passengers to sexually harass a Jewish female mole of theirs, posing as a passenger on the bus. Watch the video we prepared about the Samaria Settlers’ Committee and their activities.
Alongside all these attacks, we were moved by the support we received. Ranging from broad public support on social media, to statements of support by public figures, Knesset members, journalists, and senior army officers. Major General (res.)

The Breaking the Silence team
–Breaking the Silence has never supported the movement to boycott Israel, nor have we ever been funded by the movement (and more generally speaking, it’s important to know that the BDS movement doesn’t support any Israeli institutions).–We believe that the path to ending the occupation must include a vital public discussion on the moral price paid by Israeli society in continuing it.–We believe that the legitimacy of the State of Israel must be preserved, and that the central factor undermining this legitimacy, in the eyes of the international community, is the prolonged occupation.
