Forced to Resign After Speaking Out Against $1.2 Billion Israeli Contract was a Google Employee

Ariel Koren, a Google employee, was ordered to leave when she objected to a $1 billion deal that was brokered between Google, Amazon, the Israeli government, and the Israeli military.

According to reports, Ms. Koren took revenge on Google’s Project Nimbus. A $1.2 billion deal was reached between Google and Amazon under which they would give Israel’s military computer services and artificial intelligence (AI) equipment.

She claimed that the search engine behemoth had turned the workplace hostile and conducted illegal actions in retaliation for her objections, and that as a result she was left with no alternative but to resign from her position.

She claimed in her blog post that Google is rapidly leaning toward military contracts and is also suppressing employees who are opposed to these contracts. She said this is happening at Google. She accused Google of using its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Employee Resource Group (ERG) framework to excuse the company’s activities, and she faulted Google for doing so.

In addition, she said that Google intentionally silences Palestinian, Jewish, Arab, and Muslim employees concerned about the firm’s role in violating Palestinian human rights. As a consequence of this, the firm cultivates an atmosphere of terror for its employees.

Koren provided the information that silencing the views in this manner has benefited the corporation in terms of securing its financial interests with the Israeli military and government.

She has strongly encouraged other Google employees, referred to as “Googlers,” to become informed about Project Nimbus and oppose the initiative. In addition, she has distributed a film showing Palestinian Google employees and their sympathizers voicing their opposition to the project.

In addition, she disclosed that the Jewglers are an internal Jewish support group created to represent Jews and address any discrimination against them; however, the support group is consistently acting as an avenue to advance right-wing beliefs under the pretext of supporting diversity.

The company uses this structure as a means of evading questions and concerns over its dealings with the Israeli government. It has silenced numerous Google employees who advocate for the liberation of Palestine by taking use of the ERG structure.

Ms. Koren continued by pointing out that 250 Palestinians, including 60 children, died as a result of Israeli bombings in Gaza in May 2021. The Jewglers insisted that the company’s leadership back Israel even though this resulted in harsh criticism of Israel on a global scale.

As a result, Sundar Pichai and Susan Wojcicki, the CEOs of Google and YouTube, respectively, sent emails in which they expressed their grief for Israelis but showed no sympathy for the situation of Palestinians.
