New Report Ties Iran to Mapping Project (As I Have Already Argued For A While)

JNS reports on a new report tying Iran with the Mapping Project.

The “Mapping Project” that launched last summer, identifying locations of Jewish and pro-Israel entities in Massachusetts, as well as law-enforcement sites, drew widespread condemnation, including for being “another example of old-fashioned Jew-hatred using a modern platform.”

A new report from the Zachor Legal Institute think tank suggests that Iran is connected to the project, which maps not only Jewish sites, but also 271 police stations, nine military bases and installations, in addition to Homeland Security, FBI and Secret Service offices and sites connected to weapons manufacturers with ties to the U.S. government.

In case this sounds familiar, that is because I argued that Iran was likely behind the Mapping Project back in June 2022. Then, when news of Iran “mapping” the Jewish diaspora for an assassination campaign came out a few weeks ago, I wrote the following:

This actually fits my theory that Iran was likely behind the antisemitic Mapping Project  – promoted by many anti-Israel and BDS organizations. While those behind the project claimed they “wanted to develop a deeper understanding of local institutional support for the colonization of Palestine and harms that we see as linked, such as policing, US imperialism, and displacement/ethnic cleansing” and “in order to see where our struggles intersect and to strategically grow our local organizing capacities”, it seems to me that another reason (or perhaps the main one) was to map us for this assassination campaign.

In fact, this new report cites my original post as a source.

Not many seemed too interested in my theory back then. Here’s hoping more will be interested now that the Zachor Legal Institute have advanced the same theory.
