Ehud Barak's apartment in the exclusive Akirov Towers. It's an expensive neighborhood to rent in for a simple Marine.

Ehud Barak’s apartment in the exclusive Akirov Towers. It’s an expensive neighborhood to rent in for a simple Marine guard.

The US spy scandal goes from bad to worse according to a Yediot Achronot report that says the US rented an apartment across the street from then Defense Minister Barak, apparently to spy on him.

The apartment housed a single US Marine, whom Israeli Intelligence noted in 2007 had brought in an unusually large amount of electronic equipment into his apartment. The US claims the marine was simply an embassy guard.

In light of all the spying the US has been doing on Israel, Israeli officials have been calling for the release of Jonathan Pollard.

    You see how corrupt and hypocritical they all are? Democrat or Republican take your pick. But go ahead, keep believing in your cherished politicians. If the average guard makes that kind of money, I want some of that duty.

  3. Paul Miranda says:

    This U.S. administration, I am unhappy to say, has acted towards Israel like Delilah did to Samson: she acted like she cared for him, but sided with the Philistines (Palestinians).

  4. Just a guard you say?
    Ho! Ho1 Ho!

  5. The US will never free Pollard.
    He knows too much and if he is freed, ihe will tell the world who and what the US has been doing to Israel and their other friends

    The US "justice" department shows how unjust they are.
    Keep an innocent man behind bars, as the only way to shut him up.

    I hope that Netanyahu will make a condition to sit wath Abbas and talk peace, that the US releases Pollard.
    And no more releasing of murders who have Jewish blood on their hands.

    How Netanyahu could have fallen for Obama's demand that Israel agrees to release murderers, is beyond me. he should have known that ASbbas will never make peace with Israel. He wants Israel destroyed, as does Obama.

  6. The USA thinks it can bully Israel.

  7. Chinese says:

    US is interested in profits, it can made out of Israel. It will help to divide Jerusalem in due time.

    only G-D will be on Israel’ side. No any other Nation.
