How Apartheid Israel has become a leading exporter of tools for spying on civilians.
Dictators around the world – even in countries with no formal ties to Israel – use them eavesdrop on human rights activists, monitor emails, hack into apps and record conversations....and aid repressive regimes and despots.

Revealed by Harretz: 'Israel's Cyber-spy Industry Helps World Dictators Hunt Dissidents and Gays'

The investigation shows that “Israeli industry have not hesitated to sell offensive capabilities to many countries that lack a strong democratic tradition, even when they have no way to ascertain whether the items sold were being used to violate the rights of civilians.”

As Israel's right-wing government continues to face international condemnation over its domestic efforts to silence dissidents who dare to question the country's brutal, decades-long occupation of Palestinian territories.

The investigation “also found that Israeli firms continued to sell espionage products even when it was revealed publicly that the equipment was used for malicious purposes”.

Private Israeli companies, the investigation discovered, have sold espionage and intelligence-gathering software to Bahrain, Indonesia, Angola, Mozambique, the Dominican Republic, Azerbaijan, Swaziland, Botswana, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Panama and Nicaragua.

In addition, the investigation corroborated earlier reports over the years about sales to Malaysia, Vietnam, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, Peru, Colombia, Uganda, Nigeria, Ecuador and United Arab Emirates.

There's a handy list of repressive regimes to be added to the boycott list. List of one that is.

May I ask why you continue to support a regime that is as bad, if not worse, than any of the other repressive regimes in the world.

Of course, the Yanks are rather quiet on what action should be taken over this. Imagine what their response would be if Iran were involved.

Israel will take friends where they can get them these days

They have developed a very dynamic home grown arms industry

- and don't have too many scruples about who they do business with....
