The United States has just revealed a stunning amount of information on some of Israel’s the most closely guarded secrets: information about its military cooperation with America and 20 years’ worth of details on Israel’s nuclear technology development, up to the 1980s.

The 386-page report, composed in 1987 by the federally funded Institute for Defense Analysis, (an NGO that operates under the Pentagon), is titled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations.”

It was declassified by the Pentagon in early February – but oddly, the report has been redacted so as to black out or withhold everything the Institute wrote on America’s NATO allies – but to reveal all that American experts assembled in Israel.

The news of the betrayal is only just now beginning to filter in to Israeli media and in fact has made no headlines at all in the U.S. news markets, where networks seem largely unaware of the tsunami that may follow when the news sinks in at home.

Given the timing of the declassification and the selective redaction of the report, one has to wonder about the choices that were made from the top. But a request to publish the report was filed under the Freedom of Information Act three years ago by American journalist Grant Smith.

One of the most revealing parts of the report states the Israelis are “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs.* That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level.”

The report also compared Israel’s laboratories to those at Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. Israeli facilities, the report stated, are “an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories.”

Finally, in some areas, Israeli scientists were apparently ahead of the Americans; the report noted with admiration that Israeli physicists at Rafael (research and development laboratory in Israel) had found “ingeniously clever” solutions to difficult issues. Nevertheless, the report maintained that Israeli scientists had not yet reached the level of “partners”, inasmuch as they had obtained nuclear technologies “based on extrapolations of US equipment and ideas” and that were being produced in the United States.

However, it was found upon further investigation on site that the Jewish State had created “a totally integrated effort in systems development throughout the nation.” All forms of electronic combat operated within an “integrated system, not separated systems for the Army, Navy and Air Force.” The technology in some instances “is more advanced than in the U.S.,” the expert reported.

*A hydrogen bomb is much more powerful than the atomic bomb that wiped out Hiroshima in the 1940s.

  1. Looks like Obama is really intent on destroying Israel and the Jews, as well as the American people. This is treason the way I see it. I do hope Americans now see through Obama and the hatred he has for Israel and Jews world-wide. I loath this man and he is showing his true colors now! The POTUS is not an ally of Israel and I wouldn’t trust this man if my life depended on him.

  2. Oh my God..!!.. The US spied on Israel and is releasing secret information in an attempt to influence their decisions on nuclear negotiations with Iran..!!.. Yeah right….what a hoax being played on the American public and the world by this administration..!!..

  3. OK, now it´s out! Israel is a nuke power. Anybody wants to complain about it? We have had it for more than 40 years but have never used it, or threatened to. By all means, we cannot imagine Iran would give the same peaceful use, even if they could; but they can´t. Theirs is a race for power and domination, Israel´s is a race for security. Almost every American has a gun at home for self defense, and that is seen as legal. Why can´t the most hated state in the region have nuke armament… juts in case? YES, Israel´s nuclear program is a truth. Read my blog with more infoto this:

  4. This is gone too far and it’s hard to digest!
    If all this is real and Hussein Obama is showing his face, then we haven’t seen all of it yet!
    I’ve read earlier that the race for acquiring nuclear weapons has started already within Arab countries. Hopefully I’m wrong but what if Hussein Obama and all the Muslims are in complot to conquer the world!!!

  6. Please someone explain to me. I read the comments in many posts and there are millions who still support Obama and his decisions. Why is that? Are they blind? Can’t understand their thinking or why this President is still so popular even all these examples of betrayal to Israel. Seriously I need to understand. Somebody please? Enlighten me. Thank you

  7. Ya wonder you decided to release these? And isn’t it amazing the timing of it all. If this (along with other things) doesn’t make both democrats and republicans see how much this administration is against Isreal. Their all morons. Wake up people!!!

  9. Nurul ali; if Israel has nuke, it needs it in order to survive while enemies threaten to distroy it. Israel did not use nuke . Iran has been telling the world several times that it wants the bomb in order to distroy Israel . And they vill probably try to do that, should they have the bomb. That’s why they should not have it.

  11. I cannot believe that comment Moreyn. How could you come up with that? It’s not about anything other then this administrations position against Israel. America has stood behind Israel for decades. But this particular administration has not since this presidency. And that statement isn’t racist nor does it have political bias.
    We as Americans should stand behind Israel. God please protect Israel amen.

  14. So… It’s OK for the US to spy on our ally, Israel. It’s OK to publish secret Israeli information. BUT, it’s not OK when Israel does the same thing. Why the double standard? Also, didn’t the Obama administration just remove Hezbollah from the list of terrorist organizations?

  15. God bless Israel and PM Netanyahu…….. it is time to arrest obama administration for treason supplier of weapons and money and now intelligence they must be removed before we find ourselves in ww three…….
    Put them too the wall and end their miserable existence.

  16. Obama ordered this because the prime Minsiter told him there would be no two state solution when he found out that he,Obama was attempting to rig and influence the Israeli Election against him and his Parites that supported him in favor of the muslim persons in the Israeli Government. and their sympathizers . That is gross interferance with an allied Government. Obama was caught and he had to create another situatioin to detract from his blunders and lies.

  17. Seriously, many Americans do not believe that the United States has a unique responsibility to Israel. Following the interests of the United States rather than those of Israel is hardly betrayal. Are you suggesting that the US has a special obligation to Israel above all other countries?

  18. Then please explain why there are more Jews in high office in his administration than any other in history. And explain why he is the first US president in history to call out anti-Semitism in the State of the Union address, which I doubt you watched as it included no cartoons. Sicko.

  19. There has to be one as advanced as Israel’s for there to be information to release. That being said, Netanyahu seems to believe that a program is only centrifuges. There are serious questions about plutonium production at Arak, and a variety of technologies, such as hydrodynamic testing and exploding bridgewire detonators, at Parchin.

  20. Im not suggesting that. I am just asking how come President Obama dares to expose Israel in any way possible even opening secret files. I don’t think that is in the best interest of American people or anyone else. I wouldn’t dare to think Americans have a unique interest or responsibility for Israel. First comes your country your safety your well being and I understand that. What I don’t get is the response from President Obama to anything related to Israel, it’s citizens and PM Netanyahu.

  22. Right-wing Zionist Jews ARE Jews. I should know, because I AM a right-wing Zionist Jew. Not only that, I am also both an American and an Israeli. By the way, Howard, just how did you get any of what you said out of what I wrote? Just curious. Obama considers Israel his personal enemy and does all he can to defeat Bibi during the election and when that doesn’t work, he fails to sign a long-standing accord that provides fuel to Israel during a war and then releases long-secret info on Israels nuclear program. He has turned America into an enemy of Israel and you somehow imply something (I’m not sure what) about right-wing Jews? How did you manage that out of what I wrote?

  23. Becareful USA for what you are showing to the world shows the world we really have the wrong people running the USA and all the world will not trust you and for sure God doesn’t trust you with all you are doing in this world and turning against Isreal and how you can turn aganist them also, Remember this, God says revenage is his, When he told us not to hate someone, REVENAGE is is and boy it is coming and No hiding when it all comes at you all who is aganist Isreal. We have always been friends with Isreal for such a small country where all around them are Muslims, where Isreal always had your back over there, remember this they are Small but Mightly in all ways, they have the hand of God over them and the United States and the world are following Satan’s ways very bad as you do know what is coming and what you are trying to do to portect your selves, Nothing or No one can be protected from the true God in Heaven when he decides to send what is coming to all who has given over America to Satan who put Obama in there with all who help put him in there, you better ask for forgiveness and get America back to God over the USA and stand always with Isreal other wise God will curse each one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. What’s the reasoning behind this madman’s actions if it’s not just a pure hatred for Israel?? How can our senators/congressmen stand by and allow this? Look what he is doing to Senator Menendez!!! A member of his own party, the man is evil and an utter failure!
