In Ostrovsky’s books on the Mossad from the 1980’s, he wrote that Mossad claimed not to spy on the USA, and any spying on the USA that happened was super duper secret and sensitive, only for the most elite and trusted Katsas in a special and separate division.
Now it’s common as dirt! And as Abe Foxman might say in an article responding to this, “Counterintelligence borders on Anti-Semitism.”
I can’t wait to see, in fact, what is Abe’s response. There will be one, as he is the spokesman and apologist for Zionism extraordinaire.
The fact that this was published in Newsweek is astonishing. Or maybe not, since people don’t read any more! But you got to wonder what’s going on that they decided to come out with this now.
It’s mostly trade secrets that they are going after — greed, in other words. Not about National Security; just Greed and Chutzpah. Maybe it’s too much for a certain faction, who are saying, “you are going to get us in trouble again with your Unlimited Chutzpah!” But of course the Unlimited Chutzpah faction is just naturally stronger — they are the ones with the money and the control. The Voices of Reason, if there are any, don’t have a fraction of the clout of UnChutz.
And even more chutzpah — an outright denial of all espionage in the USA! Wow!
The intelligence agencies didn’t go into specifics, the former aide said, but cited “industrial espionage—folks coming over here on trade missions or with Israeli companies working in collaboration with American companies, [or] intelligence operatives being run directly by the government, which I assume meant out of the [Israeli] Embassy.”
An Israeli Embassy spokesman flatly denied the charges Tuesday after initially declining to comment. Aaron Sagui told Newsweek “Israel doesn’t conduct espionage operations in the United States, period. We condemn the fact that such outrageous, false allegations are being directed against Israel.” Representatives of two U.S. intelligence agencies, while acknowledging problems with Israeli spies, would not discuss classified testimony for the record. The FBI would neither confirm nor deny it briefed Congress. A State Department representative would say only that staff in its Consular and Israel Palestinian Affairs offices briefed members of Congress on visa reciprocity issues.
Ya gotta be kidding me! Denying it “flatly?” Does he think we are we that stupid? Ever heard of Jonathan Pollard, or the AIPAC bust? What an amazing lack of self awareness, or lack of awareness of everyone outside the bubble of Zionism!
Interesting times, people.
