A recent report in the Wall Street Journal claims that President Obama gave the green light to the National Security Agency to spy on Israel and collect information, specifically from the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office. This is outrageous!
The Wall Street Journal published an expose on the White House and National Security Agency (NSA) in an article Wednesday titled, “U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress”, in which the authors claim President Obama instructed the NSA to continue spying on certain leaders, especially Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, even after the president promised in 2014 to stop spying on allies.
According to the report, the NSA spied on Israel to provide the Obama administration with information on Netanyahu’s plans and Israel’s efforts to thwart the nuclear deal.
The report describes the various methods and “cyber-implants” used to intercept Netanyahu’s phone calls.
The Wall Street Journal noted that its account, stretching over both terms of the Obama administration, is based on interviews with more than two dozen current and former intelligence and administration officials and reveals, for the first time, the extent of American spying on the Israeli prime minister.
Ya’acov Amidror, former head of Israel’s National Security Council (NSC) dismissed the report as negligible, saying the US spied on everyone.
Intelligence and Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on Wednesday maintained that Israel does not spy on the US and said it expects Washington to uphold the same standards.
Protest President Obama’s decision to spy on Prime Minister Netanyahu and demand that the NSA cease and desist immediately all surveillance of Israeli communications! Israel does not spy on American soil and we expect America to reciprocate.
