As international calls against Myanmar's Tatmadaw to stop its violent crackdown against anti-coup protests that have engulfed the country over the last two months increase, news reports have exposed details of a PR deal between the country's Junta and the famous Israeli lobbyist and arms dealer Ari Ben-Menashi.

According to The Foreign Lobby Report, the $2 million deal between the Myanmar military and the Canada-based Dickens and Madson is meant to whitewash and justify the growing death toll in Myanmar following the February military coup.
The Montreal-based PR firm is owned by the Israeli contractor Ari Ben-Menashi who came to fame in the late 1980s as he exposed a US arms deal to Iran amid sanctions to UK press, in what was known as the Iran-Contra scandal.
Dickens and Madson how do you sleep at night whilst you dream of ways to make the genocidaires in Myanmar look good? Israeli connection? Ari Ben Menashe. @UNHumanRights @UN_HRC #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar #Mar6Coup pic.twitter.com/Ge4o7z0EkB— Aye MMM (@rachel93moh) March 6, 2021
According to several reports, the deal will enable Ben-Menashi's firm to communicate with western governments and policymakers, international organizations, and NGOs including the United Nations and African Union, in addition to governments of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, and Israel, to "explain" the military stance amid the violent coup that took place a few days before the new parliament was due to congregate for the first time.
Since then, the Junta has arrested the country's president Aung San Suu Kyi, and killed over 500 protesters as they expressed their opposition to the military coup.
So @cnn: did Ben‐Menashe indeed fix your Myanmar trip? Did you not know he was Robert Mugabe's dirty-tricks guy & has done similar work for other brutal regimes? Several people were abducted after talking to @clarissaward. You owe it them to speak out.@grainofssand#MyanmarCoup https://t.co/YGAtGApxty pic.twitter.com/3BFNWI9p3e— Fionalloyd (@FionaLloyd2021) April 3, 2021
Dickens and Madson is expected to accuse Aung San Suu Kyi of allowing a greater Chinese influence into Burmese politics, a claim the military is using to gain western support. It will also blame the currently arrested president who was the 1991 Nobel peace laureate for orchestrating the Rohingya genocide since 2016, in an attempt to shift the blame away from the country's military.

Hafter (Hifter) marches on Tripoli. He and his son has hired Ben Menashe's lobbying firm to get some First World support for the effort. The first article on this page is a DEEP dive into their lobbying efforts. https://t.co/ACNKLp15Q6 pic.twitter.com/gRI8ip6rCn
In recent years, Ben-Mesnshi's lobbyist firm's role in the military conflict in Libya has also been exposed, as he was reported to aid General Khalifa Haftar's efforts to rally international support for his military operation in the country.
