    Israel’s omniscient ears – Unit 8200

    Israel’s Urim base in the Negev desert is among the most important and powerful intelligence gathering sites in the world. Yet, until now, its eavesdropping has gone entirely unmentioned

    Israel’s most important intelligence-gathering installation is only a 30km drive into the Negev desert from Beersheba prison – where those taking part in the Gaza aid flotilla were briefly detained this June. The base, hidden until now, has rows of satellite dishes that covertly intercept phone calls, emails and other communications from the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia. Its antennas monitor shipping and would have spied on the aid ships in the days before they were seized.

    Israel’s powerful position in the Middle East is often associated with its armed forces, nuclear weapons arsenal or covert (Mossad) operatives. But just as important is its intelligence gathering – monitoring governments, international organisations, foreign companies, political organisations and individuals. ….

    Settler leaders accuse U.S. President of ‘unacceptable intervention’ in Israel’s affairs; call Netanyahu to resume building in West Bank settlements. …

    “Hussein Obama is an arrogant and racist politician, who probably thinks, out of ignorance, that Israel is another dictatorship, like the rest of the countries in the Middle East.” …

    The settlements are deemed by the World Court to be illegal, a finding disputed by Israel. Palestinians fear the enclaves will deny them a viable and contiguous country.

    … Enough already … The guy is a crook . … We all know it. …

    Just terminate all aid to Israel … Israel is a huge burden – not an asset.

  20. worzzz Says:

    Only by agreeing to extend the settlement freeze will Netanyahu show that he is committed to negotiations and an agreement, and is capable of leading.

    …. Netanyahu, however, is entrenched in his stance. He is making it clear that the stability of his coalition and the expansion of settlements are more important to him than U.S. government support, and even far-reaching security guarantees that the prime minister himself has demanded in the past from Obama.

    Netanyahu’s position raises great doubt as to whether his intention of attaining a “two states for two peoples” solution is honest and serious – perhaps all his peace talk has been designed to deflect international pressure from Israel, while it continues to hold on to the territories. ….

    Dear Prime Minister: U.S. Efforts to Keep the Peace Process on Track – Obama’s Offer to Israel:

    … the draft letter guarantees that Washington will not ask for a moratorium extension beyond sixty days. Rather, the future of settlements is to be settled at the table as part of territorial negotiations.

    Second, the draft letter promises that the United States will veto any UN Security Council initiative — Arab or otherwise — relating to Arab-Israeli peace during the agreed one-year negotiating period.

    Third, Washington pledged to accept the legitimacy of existing Israeli security needs and not seek to redefine them. In this context, the draft letter explicitly mentions the need to ensure a complete ban on the smuggling of rockets, mortars, arms, and related items, as well as the infiltration of terrorists into Israel. This touches on one of the most sensitive aspects of negotiations: averting infiltration into Israel from the eastern border of a Palestinian state.

    In this context, the draft letter offers to help maintain a transitional period for Jordan Valley security that is longer than any other aspect of a negotiated peace — an apparent allusion to keeping Israeli troops in that region for an extended period of time.

    Finally, Washington pledges to engage Israel and Arab states in discussions of a “regional security architecture,” addressing the need for more consultations on Iran. Although such a structure would not be formalized until a peace deal is reached, the United States would begin preparing the groundwork in advance.

    These efforts would not constitute commitments on the part of the PA or Arab states, but they would be important for Israel as unambiguous articulations of U.S. policy, which could in turn bear heavily on how the peace talks unfold.

    Finally, the draft letter explicitly discusses the need to enhance Israel’s defense capabilities in the event that the parties reach security arrangements. Even if a security deal fails to materialize, Washington’s offer creates the baseline for Israel’s defense needs in a post-peace era. These needs reportedly include a range of missile systems and aircraft (e.g., additional F-35s), layered missile defense, and multiplatform early warning means, including satellites.

    The Obama administration realizes that these needs would mean an unspecified increase in U.S. security assistance to Israel once a peace agreement is concluded.

    With Emanuel and Axelrod gone, will the Jews have access to Obama?

    “Rahm (Emanuel) was not running Middle East policy,” Diament said. “Dennis Ross and Dan Shapiro are still there.” ….

    …. Obama decided he needed Ross’s expertise on the Middle East inside the White House. …

    Israeli officials have long preferred to bypass the State Department and peace envoys, and deal directly with a senior official in the White House.

Bush’s administrations said the Israelis think that the White House ultimately makes foreign policy and are convinced that the State Department is too pro-Arab. ….

    “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
