US Spied on Israel to Help Iran
Under previous presidential administrations, the United States harnessed its clandestine assets to spy on the Soviet Union, communist dictatorships, and Islamic theocracies. Today the Obama administration uses our national security resources and tax-payer money to spy on the Jewish state of Israel. To President Barack Obama, Israel is not an ally but an adversary.
The Wall Street Journal reports, “The U.S. closely monitored Israel’s military bases and eavesdropped on secret communications in 2012, fearing its longtime ally might try to carry out a strike on Fordow, Iran’s most heavily fortified nuclear facility.” The Journal continues:
Nerves frayed at the White House after senior officials learned Israeli aircraft had flown in and out of Iran in what some believed was a dry run for a commando raid on the site. Worried that Israel might ignite a regional war, the White House sent a second aircraft carrier to the region and readied attack aircraft, a senior U.S. official said, “in case all hell broke loose.”
The two countries, nursing a mutual distrust, each had something to hide. U.S. officials hoped to restrain Israel long enough to advance negotiations on a nuclear deal with Iran that the U.S. had launched in secret. U.S. officials saw Israel’s strike preparations as an attempt to usurp American foreign policy.
Not since Jimmy Carter, the anti-Semitic peanut farmer from Georgia, has an American president empowered the forces of radical Islam at the expense of the Jewish state. Accordingly, American Thinker asserts:
The anti-Israel attitude permeated the entire government – from the State Department, to the White House, to the CIA – which means it’s going to be difficult re-establishing trust no matter who wins the presidency in 2016. In retrospect, this may be the most toxic part of President Obama’s foreign policy legacy; how he destroyed one of the strongest, friendliest relationships in US history.
The suggestion that Obama is hostile to Israel is perhaps an understatement. Arguably, this resentment against Israel, a highly-developed modern oasis of democracy, stems from an academic background that aggressively indoctrinates students to blame all ills on “Western imperialism.”
Through Obama’s eyes, the Arab world is just a passive victim of Western historical indiscretions; it harbors no responsibility for the decrepit society it has built for its poverty-stricken people. Even the brutal, virulently anti-Semitic tyrants get a free pass as long as they are Muslim.
