Why Israel spies on the US

Demonstrations for the release of Jonathan Pollard

No, it seems to me that Israeli spies are interested in questions like these:

  • -What does the US know about Arab or Iranian capabilities or plans that it has not revealed?
  • -What are US officials saying to Israel’s enemies in private? What are they hearing from them?
  • -What are the capabilities of weapons the US is selling to Israel’s enemies? Is technical information available that could provide countermeasures?
  • -What are US plans regarding its possible actions in the event of a conflict between Israel and Arab states, Iran or terrorist proxies?
  • -What are agents of Israel’s enemies up to in the US? Who are they working with?

Naturally, the US doesn’t want Israel to know these things, as they constrain US actions and impinge on some conceptions of US interests. But from an Israeli point of view, it all represents information that is vital to Israel’s survival. And if you think that, from an American point of view, Israel’s continued existence is a Good Thing, you might wonder why Israel finds it necessary to spy on its great ally.

About the Author: Vic Rosenthal created FresnoZionism.org to provide a forum for publishing and discussing issues about Israel and the Mideast conflict, especially where there is a local connection. Rosenthal believes that America’s interests are best served by supporting the democratic state of Israel, the front line in the struggle between Western civilization and radical Islam. The viewpoint is not intended to be liberal or conservative — just pro-Israel.

  1. Rc Fowler says:

    Its common for allies to spy on each other.

    As for Israel–they cannot always trust the USA–from the beginning the USA has held out one hand as a friend–with the other hand held behind the back with a knife–periodically reaching around to stab Israel in the back!

    As for the Marxist pro Islamic Arab murderer Obama administration–they have made themselves clear–they are not a friend or supporter of Israel.
