Israeli Spying Shows ‘Staunch Ally’ Spitting In America’s Face

March 24, 2015

A front page damming story today in The Wall Street Journal on Israeli spying of United States negotiations over curtailing Iran’s nuclear program should open eyes concerning the divisive nature of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

It should be noted–for all those who care about how we have to use taxpayer dollars to remain safe–that the U.S. expends more counterintelligence resources fending off Israeli spy operations than any other close ally.     How many of these types of ‘allies’ can we afford?

I have never regarded Israel for anything other than what it is, and what it continually proves itself to be.  That being a nation no more morally grounded or ethical or prone to higher ideals than any other nation.  Selfish interests are its only guiding force and for anyone to portray the Jewish state as somehow more worthy of special treatment or greater latitude simply misses the reality of the situation.

That was made perfectly clear in today’s article in a conservative American newspaper.

How the informational material was amassed, and then how the bastards shared the information gathered from the talks during partisan congressional briefings in an effort to build political opposition to a deal should alert all to the false notion that Israel can be called a ‘staunch ally’.

There is no lack of spying among nations, nor do I mean to lead readers to think my concern deals solely with the use of spycraft.  Rather it is the underhanded and despicable manner in which Israel manipulated the data and worked to destroy international attempts to alleviate a major source of concern in the Middle East.  And to so totally spit in the face of the American government is totally out of bounds.

It is offensive.

    Or it might be that your knowledge of that country is limited for whatever reason. The repressive procedures that Israel has elected to use to govern large numbers of Arabs and Palestinians against their will has made for a most tortured arrangement for everyone. The illegal settlements are but one damming piece of the argument. Legal scholars from the UN to think tanks around the world have noted in depth that the lack of access to land and water rights and even to olive groves in Israeli-occupied territories are all part of just one strong case to made for the use of the word apartheid for these actions.

    Obviously, your understanding of apartheid is very shallow.

    Israel practices apartheid–plain and simple. That is disgusting and shameful.

    “That being a nation no more morally grounded or ethical or prone to higher ideals than any other nation.

    What about the treatment of gays and women. If these are not signs of the nation’s higher ideals than perhaps you would have no problem with living “authentically” in any of the other states which surround Israel? Or would you rather live as a Christian in Egypt or a Muslim in Israel? Would you prefer the civic freedoms and open press of Israel. or the political climate of Saudi Arabia? I’m certain that given any of these choices, you would choose Israel. To do otherwise would be insanity. Think about it.

    Moral relativism of the sort we find here is disgusting and shameful.
