Is Israel Really America's Friend?
By Hal Turner

Elsewhere on this website, I have collected many articles by Western journalists, Jews and Israelis, and human rights organizations all of whom condemn Israel's policies in Palestine. I have also provided evidence that Israel is an apartheid state. I believe that all of this should be sufficient reason for America to stop supporting Israel - we should stand up for justice. But even if you don't find this a compelling argument, we can look at whether Israel has really been a loyal ally to the U.S., or whether the U.S.-Israeli relationship is costing America. Is Israel really America's friend? Examine the evidence below.
A friend wouldn't:
* spy on America
* sell American military secrets to America's enemies
* pirate America's technology
* stockpile weapons of mass destruction
* attack an American naval vessel in international waters
* stand by and let Americans be killed

Israel has done all of these and continues to do them. This is not "Muslim propaganda". All reports are taken from American or Israeli news sources and journalists.

Not convinced? American commentator Joseph Sobran alleges that it's happened before. See Did Israel Deliberately Allow 241 American Marines to Die?.
Also: Lyndon LaRouche and his colleagues have been discussing the Israeli spy ring and its possible connections to September 11. You may or may not consider Lyndon LaRouche to be a reliable source; many people consider him a crackpot and/or an anti-Semite. I have provided links to these articles as an additional resource, so that people may see the different approaches that can be made to the same facts. The first article on the Israeli spy ring appeared in August with some novel speculations: Israeli Spies, and Who (or What?) is 'Mega'? by Jeffrey Steinberg. Subsequently, the theory of Israeli foreknowledge (and possibly a greater role) was explored in Israeli Spying in U.S.: Exposé Cracks Coverup of Sept. 11, by Edward Spannaus and Jeffrey Steinberg, and EIR Blows Israeli Spies' Cover in Sept. 11 Case, by Jeffrey Steinberg and Edward Spannaus. If you want to see LaRouche venture into some speculations into the "greater role", read Zbigniew Brzezinski and September 11. This essay actually covers a lot more ground than just September 11; LaRouche seems to be setting out his entire worldview. One thing is clear: LaRouche is not presenting this theory out of some love for Islam or desire to defend Muslims. Interesting reading, whether you believe him or not...

Further Speculations

In the days immediately following the September 11 terrorist attacks, there was some speculation that Israeli intelligence (i.e., the Mossad) was behind it, rather than Osama Bin Laden. There does not appear to be any evidence of this (although the evidence cited by Raimondo is a cause in itself for speculation). Nonetheless, it is very interesting to read the following reports about past Mossad activities. Both articles are by Richard H. Curtiss, a retired U.S. foreign service officer who was chief inspector of the U.S. Information Agency. His primary source on the Mossad is Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad caseworker and author of several books on the Mossad.
