Snowden issues surveillance warning to Israelis

Snowden issues surveillance warning to Israelis | 06 Nov 2018 | US whistleblower Edward Snowden urged Israelis to be on guard against heavy-handed government and private surveillance in a speech by video link Tuesday and defended his 2013 massive leak of classified documents. Snowden, 35, highlighted Israel's high-tech capabilities, but warned that accepting too much government surveillance and too easily acceding to the argument that it is needed for security reasons posed serious risks. He also spoke of the NSO Group, the Israel-based company known for its Pegasus spyware. The software has been pinpointed by independent experts as likely being used in a number of countries with poor human rights records.
