In an explosive report we learn that ever since 2012, the United States has been spying on Israel in order to prevent the Jewish State from attacking suspected Iranian nuclear sites, according to Friday’s Wall Street Journal.

The White House had sent an additional aircraft carrier to the region after learning that Israeli aircraft had flown into Iranian airspace in what U.S. officials feared was a test run for an attack on Iran’s Fordow plant. The carriers had attack aircraft on board prepared to respond to any Israeli attack on Iran.

If that wasn’t enough to strain the conceit that the U.S. is Israel’s strongest supporter, U.S. officials also revealed to the Journal that Israel was responsible for the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists.

Several U.S. officials also claimed that Israel wanted to strike Iran in 2012, and that the United States pressured Israeli officials into retreating.

The U.S. attempted to keep its nuclear power negotiations with Iran concealed from Israel because of disagreements over the extent to which Iran should be permitted to pursue a nuclear program. Israel took the position that because Iran has an abundance of energy resources, it had no peaceful purposes for its nuclear program.

  1. If Obama does that awful thing. We in the USA will experience some awful things also. YES most US citizens stand with Israel. BUT too many US citizens did not even vote in 2012 or 2008 allowing this anti- God, anti- Israeli to become president. We are to blame.

  2. My friend I know that me too I love The development and prosperity of Israel since my country’s biblically relation on the marriage between Moses and the Abyssinia women,but the current Israeli officials are zealots and they do not show respect to what the white house provided them direction for peacefully….

  3. Duh … Obama is of the utter conviction that the only real evil in the world is White 'Merica and by extension our "Jew Proxies infesting Palestine".

    His solution is not only to gut the US in EVERY way (along with getting rid of them pesky Jews), and to drive off every friend and ally … it is to empower every possible opponant so that no one in the world will ever again have to live in fear of the imperialist oppressions of "Bitter-clinger-land".

  4. He’s the president of the United States of America not Israel! Every decision must be based solely on.American interest first and foremost! That being said, I wouldn’t personally agree with this so called truth if it were real although I’m certain this is some sort of propaganda

  5. Obama AMERICANS ARE FEED UP WITH UR MUSLIM WAY ,CONGRESS NEEDS TO IMPEACH YOU , YOUR NOT FIT TO BE USA PRESIDENT ALL U LOOK OUT 4 ATE UR MUSLIMS ,CONGRESS U NEED TO IMPEACH OBAMA NOW BEFORE HE STARTES WORLD WAR 3 ,OBAMA WANTS WAR TO DTART SO HE CAN STAY IN OFFICE AND FINISH DESTORYING USA ,HE WANTS TO BRING USA CITIZENS TO THERE KNEES ,HE WANTS USA TO BECOME A MUSLIM COUNTRY.

OBAMA WANTS ISRAEL TO BOMB IRAN NUCLEAR SO HE CAN START A WAR WITH ISRAEL.THEN HE STAYS IN OFFICE ,HE GOT A PLAN , CONGRESS IMPEACH OBAMA NOW BEFORE HE STARTS A WAR WITH ISRAEL.

  6. For your surprise our world needs Obama more than what he is playing so far ,so after Hillary Clinton wins the election this brave president remains within the white House in a different way but with same tactics of peaceful settlements in the world.

  7. Thank GOD this administration doesn’t have much longer left in which to desecrate the USA and her allies! God will bless and protect Israel! Many of us envy the sanity shown by her leaders and pray for the same in the USA! Prayers for the protection of Israel and all her peoples!

  8. In those days they didn’t have the technology they have today, and did not pick up on their radar, Israel not only apologised, but paid their families with compensation as an apology. Now what are you going to do about the 1,600 Palis who have been slaughtered by Islamic extremists in Syria? See my point? Hypocrite!

  9. The House has to impeach … which could be done with a “republican” majority… BUT the Senate will never convict… Same scenario with Bill Clinton … he was impeached but Senate did not convict! And…do you really want to see what kind of idiot “Uncle Joe” would be if he was in charge! Our only help is from above!

  10. Shirley – They intentionally jammed the ship’s communications, so they could not request help, which contradicts your inept explanation. At least have the intelligence, to validate your claim before trying to change the topic (via red herring). See MY point? Imbecile!

  11. Barack Obama is an irreplaceable president that he is quite different from others on the way how he looks human dignity and equality for all human beings without a sort of discrimination of all kinds of differences unless the differences harm human experience and existence.

  12. What about all the friendly fire that has killed thousands? And guess who killed more in friendly fire than anyone else? Least we forget the recent bombing of the hospital in Afghanistan. Are America innocent bystanders?

    Unfortunately, Israel cannot and should not trust the present government of America.

    I support Israel!

  13. Shirley – For someone who claims that Israel didn’t have the technology, in 1967, to pick up a radar signal, I will assume, by nature of your reply, you are equally as ill-informed, on matters of radio communications jamming/interference, ECM, and not waste any more of my time debating this matter with you.

  14. Me I like to see hear and to do many good things for Israel that it is because of you know what kind of biblical ties God had with us Ethiopians since the relation with them by Mosses married Abyssinia women,but many of Israeli now a days reject it and oppose Obama because of he is black,Esteye mosse negro alagebam belew be YouTube endelekeku alayeshem

  15. Troy Hines, if indeed it was intentional, don’t you think that there must of been a Damn good reason? Wasn’t there a build up to another war at the time between Israel and Egypt? Wasn’t that ship being used to spy in that area? Wasn’t it capable of jamming signals? Nothing is done without good reason with Israel, can you say the same about America?

  16. As an American citizen, I'm so sorry that this is happening to you, Israel. It shames me to no end that my country is represented by such an evil, dangerous, treasonous regime. I long for the day when he and his ilk are gone. Forgive us Israel, you do have millions of true friends here in the US. ,

  17. If pollard is sitting in jail for spying on the us for Israel then mr Obama needs to sit in jail for spying on Israel for the us the us wants to protect Iran even though he threatens to destroy Israel Obama can’t even use the term Islamic terrorist so now is Israel needs to bomb Iran the US will attack her ally Israel and protect Iran something doesn’t sound right or is it just me me president do you blowing up all the Jews?

  18. Hello 0 Poultry farmers have a situation you just answer a short questionnaire?
    Recommend everyone to read: (English ahead)
    ————————————————– ———————————

    There is no such thing as “Palestinians”.
    Iasiko Sagamori, a Japanese professor of political science at the University of Tokyo,
    Palestinian COUNSEL questionnaire transfers:
    “Is the world just simply stupid” ??? :
    If Palestine is a state, I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about her:
    1 . When it was founded and by whom?
    2. What were its borders?
    3. What was its capital?
    4. What were the major cities?
    5. What consisted of basic economy?
    6. What shape was wearing her government?
    7. Are you able to name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?
    8. Will Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at one time or another, does not leave any room for interpretation?
    9. What was the language of the State of Palestine?
    10. What was the prevalent religion in the state of Palestine?
    11. What was the name of its currency? Choose any date. What was the approximate exchange rate of the currency against the US Dollar Palestinian, German mark, British pound, Japanese yen or Chinese yuan?
    12. Since there is no such country today, what caused its destruction and when did this happen?
    You bemoan the “slow decline” of the country, “the former proud”. When exactly was the “state” is proud and what was her pride?
    13. Are the people you mistakenly call “Palestinians” are something that only Arabs G’nrim gathered from all sides or thrown out of the Arab world?
    Do they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them the right to self-determination?
    Why had not tried to gain independence until Arabs suffered a devastating defeat in the Six Day War?
    Arab states had not abandoned the dream to destroy Israel. Christians today are so in their hearts. They have repeatedly failed to achieve their goal perverse military means and decided to fight Israel – by proxy.
    To this end, they created a terrorist organization, and sarcastically called him “the Palestinian people” and placed it in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
    How else can you explain the refusal by Jordan and Egypt get back to the “West Bank” and Gaza in a dignified manner and without any conditions?
    The fact is, Arabs populating Gaza, Judea and Samaria have much less claim nationality from an Indian tribe that successfully performed in Connecticut with plans to open a casino is exempt from tax, at least that tribe had a constructive goal that pushed him.
    The “Palestinians” allegedly has only one motivation, to destroy Israel, and in my book it is not enough to be treated as “nation” or anything other than what they really are, a terrorist organization which one day will be dissolved! “.
    !!!

  19. Just of peace of mind, I would recommend that Israelis assume that our president is a muslim and that the democrat party that protects him are communists. If Israel does that, then maybe you guys can stop with these “surprising and sensational” headlines that seem to surprise you. We God-fearing conservatives here in the US are over him and nothing surprises us. We are waiting for him to get out of office so we can reverse all his executive orders and clean up the immoral mess he has created here.

  20. Just who is this acting person he has never provided a true birth certifacte. Bari Malik Shabazz born 10 -28 -1959, his mom at the time of birth was known as Jo Ann Newman Teenage Lover to Malcolm X..http:// terribletruth.marthatrowbridgeradio.org/blog/23011/11/15 Also known as FBI MOST wanted fugitive domestic terrorist “Elizabeth Ann Duke” His famous father, born Malcolm Earl Little; known principally as Malcolm X; as well as Malcolm X Shabazz, R;-Hajj el Malik Shabazz. http://wheresobamasbirthcertificate.com

  21. OBAMA HAS BEEN SPYING. He is even against America. He is not USA born and he IS a muslim. His allegience is with the islamists. He is trying and doing everything he can in the time he has left in the white house to the detriment of America and Israel.

  22. That was according to prophecy. But touch Israel, you are touching the apple of God’ s eye. No matter how much u say, truth is the truth and the truth is what the Bible says when God made a covenant with Abraham and told him ” I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you”. No matter how much you say @ Wudneh Obaba they are your opinion and not the truth. May I remind you the chosen generation comes from Isaac and not Ishmael. Isaac the child of covenant by the married, free woman Serah and Ishmael the child of the slave woman Haggah. Our parent is only relevant because we had history. God will always stand for Israel after all He gave the name to Jacob. Six days war is something to ponder on.

  23. “I will bless those who bless you…..” Does not mean God gave to Abraham to do all sins in contrary to God’s law.if you remember the background of Abreham was the one who believes in mountain…..something like that,but God came and changed him.but now Israeli leaders are like the former Abreham not the later lol,I know you are felasha but you have to know and write the current Israelis are not like the formers,I am talking about the current Israeli people specifically the whites have problem of racism .they said mosses never maried Ethiopian negro.check it from youtube

  24. Obama is looking after his own ‘the brotherhood’. He has done more for Muslims since his time in office than any other POTUS & is more than prepared to risk destroying Israel US relations to achieve that goal while he’s in the WH. He’s even recently given US $1 billion dollars to Kenya, his fathers home country, to help them with global warming issues. This is $1 billion of American tax payer money that no one in the US will ever see again. It is from what I understand ‘non recoverable’. The US’s newest best friend is no longer Israel but the Turkish PM. I’m sure more stuff will come out when he leaves the WH. If it is a Rep. that gets elected I dare say there will be sparks flying from the WH for awhile.

  25. Wudu Obaba, 4get z media bias abt Israel! Jewish are not racist, ty are victm of racism! be4 Roman n Arabs invasion:no Arabs occupation, no Al- Aqsa mosqe… Abubakr started jihad defeated z Roman then he named the jewish land pl n when he got jerusalem he decide z temple mount of jewish that was destroyed by z Romans is the edge(Al Asqa) that Prophet dream! z Prophet didn’t specify jerusalem he said that he flew until z edge,but Abubakr decided z temple mount of jewish is z edge! who occupy z land pl or Jews? jewish connection 2 jerusalem:king David, king Solomon,z temples, z capital of judah…,but z muslim connection 2 jerusalem only 4 flying horse!

  26. Obama just proved to the whole world what a rotten evil person he is (I won’t even call him a leader). He is a muslim and his loyalty is with Islam. He has slowly destroyed America, took out prayer in schools, banned the Bible in the army, intends to change the Constitution (he changed the pledge of allegiance) and continues to strip America of its culture and identity. He is NOT an ally of Israel – he is a friend of Iran (a country that seeks “death to America”)

  27. Adan, do want Israel to watch them stab freely like Mohammed killed freely and transferred his killing to your leaders.

    If you are a Palestinian and I am IDF soldier. I would put bullet in your head if you attempted to stab me. May God continue to protect Israel from the north to the south and from the dead sea to the west bank.

  28. I cannot say that I am surprised really. I am appauld but not surprised. I can only say I am sorry. These are sad times in America and for American's. G-d says He blesses those who bless Israel and He will curse those who curse Israel. We are certianly not blessing Isreal. We are turning our back on her. So by this Iranian Nuclear deal we are definately cursing Isreal. G-d will not be mocked. Please know there are many American's that love Israel and don't go along with any kind of Anti Semitisum at all. Unfortuntely the current administration is not for America or Americans. G-d have Mercy on Us.

  29. The sad thng is that there is a very good chance that Hillary will be president and will follow Obama's policies.

    She has the press and voter fraud on her side. My wife experienced a fraudulant voter machine in Bristow, VA. When she selected Republican, thedemocrat selection lit up. It was reproted in other areas of Virginia and Maryland.

    I was in computer software developemnt for 50 years. This was fraud, nto machine error.

  30. It is amazing how one traitorous president can do so much damage and very few in congress will stand up for what is right and go against the prez. He has a pass due to his color and that isn't being racist, it is just the plain and honest truth of the situation…I love Israel so much and am beyond sad at the traitorous and agressive nastiness that the prez has heaped on Israel…Being a man of basically Muslim sympathies, if not a down right Muslim in his reglious beliefs, would cause him to hate the Jews and Israel and now we see his hatrid of Christians too..Yep, he has to be a man of Islam through and through so it figures he has sucked up to Iran and stomped on Israel…I am heartbroken and ashamed of how our administration has acted…just saying

  32. It's beyond understanding how Jewish voters line up to vote for Democrats, despite it being proven they don't support Isreal or Jewish policies! Same goes for Catholics. Obama and his health law have flown in the face of the Catholic stance on contraception and abortion. Yet, Catholis still flock to the polls and vote D!

  33. No doubt the biggest failure in the Obama foreign policy is the failure to support Israel. The most egregious crime is his most obvious efforts to destroy our nation from the inside. May God forgive us for our stupidity in electing this man and may God bless Israel!

  34. Marilyn Lober Colucci Good for you! We all know there are both jews and Catholics who DO SEE how dangerous Democrats are. It's just so frustrating to witness them getting away with it over and over again. Take Miami, for instance – Gung Ho about Obama and Charlie Crist and Democrats in general!

  35. The President released 150 Billion dollars to Iran. Now he is spying on Israel and using the Untied States Military to shoot down IAF aircraft if they dare attack Iran… American foreign policy with Russia, Iran, N. Korea & ISIS is a total disaster!

  36. Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated.

    And just because there are 1.8 billion Muslims, that does not make the problem insurmountable but rather simply a larger problem. And thus it needs to dealt with initially in a different fashion.

    The first step to dealing with Islam and its followers is to learn about it and then to educate non-Muslims as to the nature of Islam and its followers. And people must not take their education from the followers of Islam but rather from its critics. People will then step back in horror at the realization of what we have in our midst. Islam and its followers will then become marginalized, and that will be the beginning of the end for Islam and its followers.

    Like Nazis and Nazism which together with Islam, its followers and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who all worked together so diligently to murder our people, Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated. Islam goes even further by canonizing in their Qur’an and their own religious works the command and examples to murder our people to the very last one.

    Now, all the Germans did not need to be killed. But Nazism, its leaders, dedicated followers and the symbolic vestiges promoting its presence were eradicated. Only the places of horrors it created and the history of what it did are preserved as a reminder to humanity.

    The Dome of the Rock and the al-Aksa mosque need to be razed. Had our people known the nature of Islam in 1967 (after nearly 1400 years we still have not internalized the nature of Islam and its followers… shame on us), we would have exposed Islam for what it is, say by reading aloud the Qur’an, and started demolitions. Islamic presence must eventually be removed, everywhere. It is important that anything of value must be disposed of in a fashion such that there is no gain nor profit from the effort.

    The solution for the moment is not a war of aggression against Islam but rather the education of our people and of western civilization regarding Islam.

    Religions can be evil. People need to understand the exact details of Islam, its history to this day, its tactics, its strategies, and to grasp the Darwinianly perfected nature and makeup (with the intelligence of captured and bred blood of other peoples including our own) of its people. We need not to take for granted extrapolations of early unrelated biblical texts that predate by thousands of years where the people of Islam may have originated. We must not blindly accept as truths Muslim explanations for their origins. They simply are what they are, and have Darwinianly perfected themselves by systematically killing off any of their own people who become apostates or voice civilized and intelligent ideas.

    Note that Allah is not the same as G-d, and Islam although "monothesism" is not the same as Judasim.

    Lets take a look at some of Islam's diktats as follows.

    8:12 “And when your Lord revealed to the angels who reinforced the Muslims, ‘I am with you with help and support so make those who believe firm through the help and good news you bring. I will cast terror (extreme fear) into the hearts of those who disbelieve, so strike their necks (behead them) and strike all their finger joints, cutting off their fingers and toes!’ ”

    “Fight them until there is no more chaos and [all] religion belongs to Allah” (8:39)."

    “slay the idolaters wherever you find them” (9:5)

    “until they pay the jizya with willing submissiveness and feel themselves utterly subdued” (9:29)

    9:33. It is He {Allah} Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions

    9:80 “You Muhammad, may ask forgiveness for them, or not ask forgiveness for them…Even if you asked forgiveness for them seventy times, Allah still would not forgive them..That is because they have rejected Allah and His Messenger. Allah does not guide deviant people.”

    (47:4) “Therefore when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks—

    The followers of Islam been indoctrinated since infancy that Islam and its followers will eventually rule the earth. The commands cannoized in their Qur’an very explicity make that a point and dictate that should be accomplished by slaying the Jew and the infidel until the task is accomplished. Again, this is what Muslims from childhood are taught, believe and expect. The orthodox Muslims that practice it are labeled “terrorists”, "radicals" or some other euphemistic label that lets Islam itself off the hook, when in fact they are carrying out to the letter explicit and very clear Islamic religious commands. An example would be to say that there is a problem with the radical SS, thus implying that Nazism itself would otherwise be okay if it were not for those pesky SS.

    Present day Muslim leadership is sly in their stealth jihad by gradually infiltrating and undermining our civilization and our very thought process itself.

    Islam will not and cannot coexist with civilization. From the perspective of Islam, any instance of rational civilized thought must be eradicated. That is because any instance of the “good” acts as a mirror, a standard by which evil can be recognized and called out. Thus the hatred of the good, the hatred of western civilization and of Jews in particular.

    The problem is that people do not understand Islam and the nature of its followers.

    I propose that we work on educating others regarding Islam and its followers. We must do this in foreign publications as much as we do here. Western civilization needs to understand the details and nature of Islam and that of its followers.

    In the words of Turkish PM Erdogan regarding the term "moderate Islam" to describe the AKP party – "These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

    "Learn about Islam. That is the most important thing for people to do. Learn who it is that you are not." – Samuel Lurie

  37. Spying on your friends is one thing. It's been done forever. But preparing to shoot down Israeli planes (supposedly your closest ally) to prevent the planet's #1 state sponsor or terrorism from getting nukes? It's pretty clear which side Obama is on… 🙁

  38. The American people are your friends, but our current President is at war with american people and the nation of Israel.The current President is trator to his people and Israel.
    I write this post as a American and Christian he (Oboma) hates us (christians) and you the Jews. The christians of america stands with you, may God bless the nation of Israel.

  39. God bless Ysrael. May the Lord have mercy on them and the US to reverse the hardening of hearts and rid us of the anti-Christ that currently occupies the US White House. ..and his minions in Congress. Pray as the end approaches for national and worldwide wisdom to rid ourselves of the periods of Islam and those who open the door to its evil.

  40. I am an American, A Christian, I fully support Israel and the Jewish People. I am embarrased by the conduct of our president, this administration and it's supporters. This Country was once a Shining Light to the World, that light is fading fast.Unless this Country turns from it's current path I fear what the future holds not only for the USA but for Israel. God Bless the USA and Israel.

  41. Sorry Israel, believe me, most of the people in the US didn't want to have a radical Muslim as President of the US, but we have a bit of a problem here with legitimate elections which no doubt they will try to pull again when it comes to Hillary Clinton.

  42. People of Israel that may be reading this, PLEASE know that the bulk of the American people are with YOU, not are anti-Christ president. I'm 56, and have been a supporter of Israel since the 1st time I saw the movie "The Ten Commandments" as a child. May God have mercy on those to wish to do harm to the people of Israel!

  43. Obama has brought the US down in so many ways. A lot of people say he has committed treason. The majority of Americans love Israel and will stand by it. Obama is out of control and needs to be removed from office. God is protecting Israel. God Bless Israel.

  44. If this is true, it is despicable. But, didn't American Jews vote overwhelmigly for this pos in both 2008 and 2012? I never understood that. I am not an expert on foreign affairs, but I could have told you eight years ago that this prick was an anti-semite and a muslim sympathizer. Sadly, we reap what we sow.
