By Philip Giraldi – Israeli government claims that it does not spy on the United States are intended for the media and popular consumption. The reality is that Israel’s intelligence agencies target the United States intensively, particularly in pursuit of military and dual-use civilian technology.

Among nations considered to be friendly to Washington, Israel leads all others in its active espionage directed against American companies and the Defense Department. It also dominates two commercial sectors that enable it to extend its reach inside America’s domestic infrastructure: airline and telecommunications security. Israel is believed to have the ability to monitor nearly all phone records originating in the United States, while numerous Israeli air-travel security companies are known to act as the local Mossad stations.

As tensions with Iran increase, sources in the counterintelligence community report that Israeli agents have become more aggressive in targeting Muslims living in the United States as well as in operating against critics. There have been a number of cases reported to the FBI about Mossad officers who have approached leaders in Arab-American communities and have falsely represented themselves as “U.S. intelligence.” Because few Muslims would assist an Israeli, this is done to increase the likelihood that the target will cooperate. It’s referred to as a “false flag” operation.

Mossad officers sought to recruit Arab-Americans as sources willing to inform on their associates and neighbors. The approaches, which took place in New York and New Jersey, were reportedly handled clumsily, making the targets of the operation suspicious. These Arab-Americans turned down the requests for cooperation, and some of the contacts were eventually reported to the FBI, which has determined that at least two of the Mossad officers are, ironically, Israeli Arabs operating out of Israel’s mission to the United Nations in New York under cover as consular assistants.

In another bizarre case, U.S.S. Liberty survivor Phil Tourney was recently accosted in Southern California by a foreigner who eventually identified himself as an Israeli government representative. Tourney was taunted, and the Israeli threatened both him and journalist Mark Glenn, who has been reporting on the Liberty story. Tourney was approached in a hotel lounge, and it is not completely clear how the Israeli was able to identify him. But he knew exactly who Tourney was, as the official referred to the Liberty, saying that the people who had been killed on board had gotten what they deserved. There were a number of witnesses to the incident, including Tourney’s wife. The threat has been reported to the FBI, which is investigating, but Tourney and Glenn believe that the incident is not being taken seriously by the bureau.

FBI sources indicate that the increase in Mossad activity is a major problem, particularly when Israelis are posing as U.S. government officials, but they also note that there is little they can do to stop it as the Justice Department refuses to initiate any punitive action or prosecutions of the Mossad officers who have been identified as involved in the illegal activity.

In another ongoing Israeli spy case, Stewart Nozette appears to be headed towards eventual freedom as his case drags on through the District of Columbia courts. Nozette, an aerospace scientist with a top secret clearance and access to highly sensitive information, offered to sell classified material to a man he believed to be a Mossad officer, but who instead turned out to be with the FBI. Nozette has been in jail since October, but he has now been granted an additional 90-day delay so his lawyers can review the documents in the government’s case, many of which are classified. If Nozette demands that sensitive information be used in his defense, his case will likely follow the pattern set in the nine-times-postponed trial of AIPAC spies Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, who were ultimately acquitted in April 2009 when prosecutors determined that they could not make their case without doing significant damage to national security. A month after Rosen and Weissman were freed, Ben-Ami Kadish, who admitted to providing defense secrets to Israel while working as an engineer at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, walked out of a Manhattan court after paying a fine. He did no jail time and continues to receive his substantial Defense Department pension.

The mainstream media reported the Rosen and Weissman trial intermittently, but there was virtually no coverage of Ben-Ami Kadish, and there has been even less of Nozette. Compare that with the recent reporting on the Russian spies who, by all accounts, did almost nothing and never obtained any classified information. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that spying for Israel is consequence free.

    CIA and Israeli Mossad are like ‘twin-sisters.

    Jewish espionage activities are so obvious that only a fool will deny it. The first couple electricuted for passing-on US nuclear secrets to USSR – was Jewish. Most americans have heard of Jonathan Pollard for passing-on over one million secrets to Israel. According to Israeli daily Ha’aretz, hundreds of Israelis were arrested for spying for Israel after 9/11 but later allowed by Justice Department to return to Israel.

    And who can forget Scooter Libby!! The other famous Mossad agent was Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street journalist, who was killed in Pakistan but immortalized in both Israel and the US.

    The key here is the Justice Department refuses to prosecute. This is because the Justice Department, like the State Department, is riddled with Zionists, dual citizen Israelis and most likely Mossad agents. After Cointelpro, the FBI remains a heavily compromised and corrupted organization (wasn’t J, Edgar Hover gay?). Who doesn’t know this? It’s pointless to go to the FBI on things concerning the Mossad. Nothing will ever come of it.
    Oh, we are an occupied country and there is no end to it.

    To the best of my knowledge, Hoover wasn’t gay. He just liked wearing women’s gowns to parties. (I have seen some photos and they didn’t suit him). I am still trying to figure out why I was visited by two Israeli art students in the summer of 2001, as I have nothing to do with the US government (other than the fact they like spying on me). I understand the Wikipedia site (on Israeli art students_ keeps getting hacked – but it was up there last time. And apparently a number of “civilians” in the Pacific Northwest got visits. I’m still trying to understand why this was. I experienced intensive Cointelpro style harassment (for my political activities) between 1987 and 2002. I write about this in my recent memoir THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE (www.stuartbramhall.com). At present I live in exile in New Zealand.

    What is new? Israel is a brain child of the Anglo-Cowboy mentality.

    The spy agency of the USA is so dumb that it never differentiates between their agent and that of Israel. In most of the cases the CIA thinks that the Moosad is infact working for them, even if the Mosaad agent vehemently denies such an assertion.

    It is hands in gloves or the gloves in hand. The real fact of the matter is that, in the last analysis the Intel of the Mosaad prevail upon the CIA.

    You can very well imagine the real master spy.

    Instead of spending time and energy pretending to be US Intelligence Mossad should spend their resources–to investigate Israel’s sex slave trade, human trafficking and other crimes perpetrated by Israel.

    “JERUSALEM POST – Israel has failed to take adequate measures against human rights abuses of women who have been brought here and forced to provide sexual services, Amnesty International charged.

    “This is so,” a special Amnesty report on the trafficking of women from the former Soviet Union said, “even though many of them have been subjected to human rights abuses such as enslavement or torture, including rape and other forms of sexual abuse, by traffickers, pimps, or others involved in Israel’s sex industry.”

    Amnesty International also criticized Israel for not providing a procedure to grant asylum to women who have been smuggled into the country often on the basis of false promises of work having nothing to do with sex.

    According to Amnesty International, hundreds of women are brought to Israel from the former Soviet Union every year.

    From luring or kidnapping women and forcing them to work in Israeli brothels, to being major players in the slave trade. Wonder where those Israeli’s got the ideas to traffic in women? From their slave running ancestors.

    Must be a genetic thing.

    Four hundred years ago, Jewish slave traders dominated the lucrative business of shipment and sale of African slaves to the new world. 6 For at least the last 125 years, Jews have also overwhelmingly controlled organized prostitution and white slavery in Europe, the United States, and South America.

    Jewish historian Edward Bristow, in his book Prostitution and Prejudice: the Jewish Fight against White Slavery, says:

    Rooted largely in Eastern and Central Europe where they “dominated the international traffic out of the area,” (p. 2) Jews were involved in prostitution rings that networked, wrote Arthur Mora (of London’s Jewish Association for the Protection of Girls and Women) in 1903, “to almost all parts of North and South Africa, to India, China, Japan, Philippine Islands, North and South America, and also to many of the countries of Europe.” (p. 1)

    Running planet wide kidnapping rings to stock Tel Aviv whorehouses, to the slavery business to using their pseudo-religion Judaism, as a front to trade in body parts.

    Next time you read that some West Bank Palestinan teenager has disappeared, you’ll know he’s not missing, his corpse is laying in some Israeli morgue, without any organs, since those are headed to New York so ‘Moshe’ can get a kidney transplant.

    Brought into the USA by some Rabbi, who also specialize in smuggling blood diamonds and ecstasy pills”

    —Taken from the website: The ugly truth/Mark Glenn

    Mark Glenn is right about the Jew owned and operated black slave trade in America. David Duke has a video about this same topic on his website. The career of black professor Tony Martin was destroyed by various groups of Jewish people
    because he wrote about the Jew owned and operated black slave trade. Jewish people try to put the entire blame on white people–for what they themselves have done to black slaves who were tied down in chains and even severely beaten up during their transport to America–while making money in the slave trade.

    48% of Jews owned slaves while only 2% of whites owned them.

    There was an article posted on David Duke’s website where a 18 year old Shane McClellan who is white has been brutally beaten by a black man and an Asian. They while attacking him have yelled “the whiteman has kept us down and this is for enslaving our people”.

    At universities the past history of slavary is a favorite topic but the real truth about who the real perpetrators were is not at all revealed. At Brown University the black president started a committee to investigate slavary and the findings did not include the part played by the Jews. She sent various professors to different cities and towns to give lectures to gatherings of people in campuses as well as places like local libraries and there was a lot of emotion generated by her efforts. But sadly white people became the target of this deliberate conspiracy against them–perpetrated by the Jewish professors and their allies: black president Ruth Simmons and black professors at Brown and other institutions controlled by Jewish administrators and the respective Jewish university board of various universities. Ruth Simmons got people from other places to come to Brown such as from North Carolina–who spoke about black slavary with rage and hate which was directed at only the white people.

    Two young white men both in their freshmen year on the Brown campus got brutally beaten up by minority thugs and they needed surgery to their face for injuries to the facial tissues as well as for the broken jaw. Both these happened in 2007. Ruth Simmons and the black police chief have informed police officers at Brown not to talk to people about these things and Zionist Jewish Providence police chief has asked police officers at the Providence police department to not to talk also because they got to know that I was spreading this information. What took place in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and whether anymore white young men were beaten up since 2007 I am not aware of.

    No Jewish man has been beaten up at Brown ever to the best of my knowledge. If it occured it will be all over the news media not just in Providence but globally and of course it will be due to “anti-Semitism”.

    Samething when it comes to police officers in Providence where many white officers have been beaten up by thugs and one officer was even murdered inside the police station [50 year old veteran police detective James Allen].
