Snowden Files Reveal: US, UK, Spied on Olmert, Barak

Uncle Sam and Uncle Jack just have to know some things.
The Kirya military base and its signature intelligence tower in the center of Tel Aviv are slated for dismantling over the next two years, leaving behind prime real estate for development. Altogether the IDF move is expected to generate 100,000 new housing units.

It’s all part of our ongoing quest for knowledge, see?

Is there any law this administration won’t break, then lie about it, then be pressed to admit they were lying in the first place?

The European Commission would have none of it, of course, calling the revelation “unacceptable.”

“This piece of news follows a series of other revelations which, as we clearly stated in the past, if proven true, are unacceptable and deserve our strongest condemnation,” their spokesman said. “This is not the type of behavior that we expect from strategic partners, let alone from our own member states.”

Of course, any discussion of the U.S. spying on Israel brings to mind the Jonathan Pollard issue, and whether Israeli leaders should not demand that America compensate Israel by letting the poor fellow go home.

Naturally, to do that, Israeli leaders need to want the poor fellow to go free…

  1. Shalom mooi is de sneeuw

  2. … and yet our brother, Jonathan Pollard, still languishes in an American prison! Shame on Uncle Sam!

  3. this is a treason from united state betray Israel this message is for Mr. Netanyahu read yirmeyahu 17:5 pls do not trust in human trust in the lord

  4. perhaps this can be used to help Mr. Pollard out of prison?

  5. Bob Hathaway says:

    This is nothing new. Condi Rice ordered the CIA to create personal files on everyone of importance in Israel and then used it to blackmail them in negotiations. She was every bit as devious as obama.

  6. Lesley Sinclair says:

    There is nothing new under the sun – especially when it comes to Israel.

  7. Anonymous says:

    In 1967, the U.S.S.Liberty was spying on Israel during the War and the information was passed to the Egyptians.

  8. Sara Engel says:

    agree.

  9. Time for that fact to be made widely known to the USA citizens who have always condemned Israel for attacking their ship.

  10. Of course Pollard still languishes in a US prison.
    If he is released, he will be able to expose the US for their spying on Israel, and other countries, which will hurt their "good name"

  11. Roslee says:

    I can’t believe US and UK spying on the Israel.A very close and friendly ally like Israel is monitored this mean no trust on the country by western countries.

  13. Lynn Davis Hathaway says:

    A true friend does not stab the other in the back.

  14. Sam R says:

    This is siiliness! Everybody spies on everybody else! Hello earth to people! Is anyone listening? :-)

  15. Yechiel Baum says:
