Is Israel A U.S. Allie...I think not...

Just a day after Defence Department official Larry Franklin was arrested on charges of passing classified information in the service of Israel, America's Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte was the guest at a pro-Israel event, where he praised Israel as an American ally.

Such is the degree of America's blindness to Israel's espionage activities in the United States.

Had this occurred in the USSR during the Cold War, diplomats would have been declared persona non grata. Even when long-term American ally France was caught in commercial espionage, the public repercussions were greater.

The silence about this case of Israeli espionage was so deafening that even The Jerusalem Post noted: "The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) seems to be breathing a sigh of relief and is expecting Washington to go about business as usual."

And, in fact, that is what has happened. AIPAC, the Israeli lobbying organisation alleged to have taken the documents from Franklin, is holding a conference on 22-24 May 2005 and politicians of every political stripe will be speaking to assure the Israelis that they remain solidly behind them.

Article from Al Jazeera

Before anybody gets discriminatory ad naseum...Al Jazeera has been demonized for no other reason than it did not tow the Bush party line. I have watched and read and see nothing that makes me believe the White House rhetoric that they demonize the US to inspire hate. They just print stories, no different to US media. By listing the source of the link, nobody can say I was deceptive. If you do not like the fact that I read from Al Jazeera, it means two things...
1. I am most likely more informed than you believe yourself to be and
2. You have the same underwear to get happy in.

I have to wonder...what is it that makes it possible for Israel to spy on the US time and again with no repercussions whatsoever? They have done it repeatedly during my lifetime.

Why is it that Israel can sell China information on US Patriot Missiles, which they have recently done, and nobody is held accountable for it? Talk about a loophole in National Security... If an American did this...BOOM...Federal prison and never seeing sunshine again. Why is it that no other country in the world could spy on us or sell our secrets and be allowed to slide?

I did a few searches for Israeli Espionage and I was stunned. A Google search brought up more than 237,000 items.Yahoo search gave me 150,888 items. Ask Jeeves seach bowled me over with a whopping 63,100 items. There are cases of Israel spying on us that date back 40 years and longer!

With all the evidence out there, the latest flab and knowing that Israel sold our military secrets to China, why is Israel treated with such honor considering their dishonorable behavior to the US...supposedly their closest ally?

Appears that the terrorist of choice program also runs along the same lines as spies of choice.


Almost 40 years ago, the USS Liberty came under Israeli attack in which 34 American sailors were killed and 172 wounded. It was brushed off as a case of mistaken identity by the US government and the investigation was stopped. Ward Boston, Jr., Captain, JAGC, USN (Ret.), Senior Counsel to the USS Liberty Court of Inquiry, has given a public declaration as of January 09, 2004, claiming that the official story of the USS Liberty was twisted and/or whitewashed and that he and Admiral Isaac Kidd believed the attack on the US vessel was deliberate. US soldiers died horribly and after seeing what he believed was the rewriting of history and the coverup of a deliberate attack, Boston could not, in good conscience keep silent any longer. With the evidence at hand, he and Kidd, along with the surviving sailors, believed this to be an intentional attack on an American Naval ship, meant to have no survivors.
