Hundreds of woke Amazon and Google employees reportedly signed a letter opposing their respective companies’ contracts to provide the Israeli military and government agencies with cloud services.
Although the contract between Israel’s Big Tech companies and Amazon, Project Nimbus is lucrative, it seems that many Google and Amazon employees view Israel as something other than the Promised Land. The “internally” and anonymously signed letter from “more than” 300 Amazon and “more than” 90 Google employees was published in The GuardianThe letter was. It promoted a leftist narrative and called for Israel’s expulsion. The letter called support of all these entities “a disturbing pattern of militarization.”
Amazon and Google employees tried to establish a moral high ground. “We are writing as Google and Amazon employees of conscience from diverse backgrounds. We believe that the technology we build should work to serve and uplift people everywhere, including all of our users,” the letter opened. “As workers who keep these companies running, we are morally obligated to speak out against violations of these core values.” The employees called on “the leaders of Amazon and Google to pull out of Project Nimbus and cut all ties with the Israeli military.” The letter added, “We are anonymous because we fear retaliation.”
The employees did not clarify what “retaliation” they feared or on what, if any, grounds their fear was based.
Amazon and Google employees referenced a number of Israeli crimes. “We cannot look the other way, as the products we build are used to deny Palestinians their basic rights, force Palestinians out of their homes and attack Palestinians in the Gaza Strip – actions that have prompted war crime investigations by the international criminal court,” the letter added.
The letter’s information appears wholly one-sided against Israel. Hamas controls Gazans. It was declared a terrorist organization by President Bill Clinton in 1997. The Palestinians have also refused multiple deals with Israel to receive their own country, preferring to seek to take over Israel “from the river to the sea.”
Yahoo! reports that Amazon and Google won $1.2 million Project Nimbus contracts in April, beating other companies like Microsoft. News. Amazon further reportedly signed a $50 million contract with Israel’s Department of Defense “to identify unrecognizable objects from its drones and aerial footage.”
