The decades long love affair between the United States and Israel appears to be cooling, but is it really? The latest news is Israel has was spying on and received intelligence from the US regarding the current Nuke Talks and then turned around and shared that intelligence with the #47Traitors so they could make a bipartisan push for Israel’s agenda.
Now Israel is denying that they were ever spying.
So What Is Their Agenda?
For the US to keep funding Israel for their military; both with money, our military might and defense contracts and weaponry of course.
And, it was and still is a push for war with Iran over their possibility of making a nuclear weapon program operational. Not in Israel’s best interests, surely, but isn’t this like the pot calling the kettle black since Israel is supposed to be the current superpower in the region?
The love affair and sometimes troubled relationship began between both countries long ago during Harry Truman’s presidency, right after WW2 and then after Israel was birthed in 1948. Secret negotiations and private talks with Israel and then including them with other western superpowers was always a given with every single president we have had since WW2. Netanyahu has addressed our Congress three times, only the second foreign head of state permitted to do so that many times; Churchill being the first.
Kissing, Telling And Affairs
Everyone knows that the Mossad is a formidable force in the world of Intelligence and Intelligence gathering. But…
“It is one thing for the U.S. and Israel to spy on each other. It is another thing for Israel to steal U.S. secrets and play them back to U.S. legislators to undermine U.S. diplomacy,” said an anonymous US official.
Earlier this week, the White House chief of staff, Denis McDonough, made clear what many were already assuming, that this long relationship between Israel and the US would be re-evaluated.
“We cannot simply pretend that these comments were never made,” McDonough said.
“I don’t look at Israel or any nation directly affected by the Iranian program wanting deeply to know what’s going on in the negotiations—I just don’t look at that as spying,” said Senator Tim Kaine (D) VA. “Their deep existential interest in such a deal, that they would try to figure out anything that they could, that they would have an opinion on it… I don’t find any of that that controversial.”
Spying on the US and using it against the leadership is a dangerous precedent and affects not only the US economy but the military as well. But it is OK with some in Congress and the Senate. At the very least it is blatant manipulation. And has become a constant repetitive topic in the corporate media. The question we need to ask is this: is this how we want to be represented?
Who’s Got The Nukes? Please Whisper In My Ear
The secret talks on Iran’s nuclear program began in 2012 and the end date has been recently moved to July of 2015. It is still unknown on whether or not Iran will eventually use their nuclear enrichment program for a nuclear agenda. In another unprecedented move reported on earlier today, the US has declassified a report on Israel’s nuclear program. And with the US and Russia being the nuclear superpowers on the planet, perhaps it is time to dismantle and take them all down. Damn, I knew this relationship was not going to last!
