If you are an “I Support Israel” type of person, be forewarned—the odds are, you will hate this article. This is not some anti-Semitic article. It has nothing to do with religion or the Jewish faith. It has everything to do with the politics, policies, and practices of an actual nation state–Israel.
If you have the abilities to separate your passion, and everything you have been socially conditioned to believe, you may just realize why Israel, the nation state, is not an ally to the United States. The below should not be considered anti-Semitic but rather a brief history lesson which will hopefully allow some open minded persons think about whether Israel should be considered a true “friend” of the United States.
Israel is all about propaganda and spies. Of most concern, their claimed number one ally, the United States, seems to be their biggest target. As readers will learn, Israel is not a true ally but rather a potential back stabbing enemy to the United States.
In 1987, Naval Intelligence Officer Jonathan Pollard was caught selling thousands of secrets to the Israeli’s. Israel denied these allegations pertaining to Pollard working for Israel however a decade later, Israel confirmed his activities. “Israel apologized and promised not to spy on U.S. soil again. Since then, more Israeli spies have been arrested and convicted by U.S. courts,” according to Newsweek.
Israel has denied virtually every single activity they have been accused of conducting against the United States. This includes the 1967 attacks against the USS Liberty.
Many claim, especially the “Pro-Israeli” crowd, that the attack on the USS Liberty which left 34 American crewmen killed and 174 wounded, was a total accident and will quickly draw conspiracy claims against anyone who points to a deliberate Israeli attack—this includes attacking former Director of the NSA Lt. General Marshall Carter, who testified in front of congress claiming the attack “couldn’t be anything else but deliberate.”
More often than not, those who dispute such claims do so because of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League’s quick counter propaganda and denial operations. It should be noted that AIPAC and the ADL not only serves as “unofficial” propaganda and denial arms for Israeli conservatives but also have a history of conducting spying operations here inside the United States as well.
In the early 1990’s, the ADL was accused of running a spy ring throughout the United States and conducting such operation in coordination with the South African government. The Lawrence Franklin espionage scandal (also known as the AIPAC espionage scandal) started in 1999, possibly even earlier, and continued through the early 2000’s.
It is next to impossible to come clean with facts against Israeli operations against the United States without being brutally attacked by the “Pro-Israeli” crowd. One reason this crowd grew so large and virtually so quick in a few years’ timeframe is because of Israel’s propaganda capabilities that run deep inside American media and government institutions which includes even in the White House–dating back as far as the Regan Presidency and continuing even today with Republicans and Democrats alike.
Israel’s newest propaganda operation is using– actually paying– Israeli students to promote propaganda as well. Virtually every level of American society has been infiltrated by one part or another of a huge Israeli machine.
Some believe only enemies spy against the United States. Interestingly, our claimed #1 ally in the Middle East actually leads the pack when it comes to spying on us. That’s right, Israel spies against the United States more than any nation state. And, the largest foreign spy ring ever identified inside the United States came from, you guessed it, Israel. Fox News covered this spy ring in a four part series. In that series, they also uncovered how the Israeli government conducted the largest intelligence operation by access to virtually every American’s phone records.
Many would like to argue that Israel is conducting clandestine activities against Islamists who are living here inside the United States. While that may be partially true, another truth is the fact that Israel conducts more business intelligence and espionage against the United States than any other nation.
Why is this such a huge concern? Well, Israel is amazing at reverse engineering and they have a means to sell US trade secrets to what the United States considers our truest of all foes like China and Russia. In fact, in 2005, Israel was caught selling U.S. technology to China. In 2010, Israel signed a five year plan to assist Russia’s military with advanced technology which includes the sales of drones which, you guessed it, are technically advanced systems originating from the United States yet stolen by the Israeli’s.
We know Israel spies on the United States, denies everything they do, and creates mad propaganda. We know Israel sells our technology to Russia and China. What more could Israel do against the United States before we realize they are not a true ally to us? Start murdering our own citizens?
Chris Cramer, a citizen of the United States, was recently found dead on the 15th of January 2015 in Saudi Arabia. He was working as a sub-contractor for a large Israeli defense company known as Elbit Systems. The subcontractor Mr. Cramer worked for inside the United States was Kollsman—a subsidiary of Elbit.
What was he doing and how did he truly die remains unclear. Some claim it was suicide while others believe he was murdered. Nonetheless, he is dead. But he died after he realized he was involved in a unique secret arms deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel—arms that Saudi Arabia had all intentions to pass into Syria. He even texted concerns of what he uncovered to persons back inside the United States. Then, soon after those texts, he died.
We know Israel has access to American phones. Fox News revealed that in their four part series. We know Israel will deny everything and anything they engage in when it comes to clandestine activities. And those who know Israeli assassination Modus Operandi’s, knows going into a hotel room or an apartment and conducting a hit is not out of the norm. Is their circumstantial evidence proving Chris Cramer was murdered by the Israelis directly or through direction passed onto the Saudi’s? No. But enough indicators point that direction.
It was noted in the very beginning of this post, “If you are an ‘I Support Israel’ type of person, be forewarned—the odds are, you will hate this article.” Don’t hate it because of some false assumption believing this is some anti-Semitic post. Hate the article because you learned something you wish you never knew about the Israeli government.
