Espionage devices, designed to fool mobile telephones into giving up data, were found “near the White House and other sensitive locations around Washington, D.C.”, targeting Trump and other senior officials. Israel is certainly responsible.
The surveillance devices found are known as “StingRays,” imitate regular cell towers to fool cell phones into giving them their locations and identity information. Are they in cahoots with Facebook at all? Sounds awfully familiar! Formally called international mobile subscriber identity-catchers or IMSI-catchers, they also can capture the contents of calls and data use. They need to be punished immediately.
If this was any other Muslim country the headlines and rhetoric from Washington would be hell on earth, it’s just a despicable double standard.
I’m interested in the timing of installation would be interesting. Was this pre or post May 2017 Trump-Lavrov meeting at the White House where Trump or someone revealed classified information about Israel? Was this for world leaders to figure out Trump’s capabilities, his positions, and trustworthiness.
The Israeli embassy released a statement that is laughable,
“These allegations are absolute nonsense. Israel doesn’t conduct espionage operations in the United States, period.”
In fact, Israel spies on everyone, friend and foe, and is considered a top US counterintelligence issue. Also, the country behind the Harvey Weinstein Black Cube dilemma that’s blackmailed so many people and have not been punished for wiretapping and whatever other crimes they committed.
The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly described the report on Thursday as a “blatant lie” and said Israel doesn’t engage in “any intelligence operations” in the U.S. The hits keep coming anybody who knows anything about Israel and watches NCIS can tell you they are the leader in surveillance and spying not even the corrupt C.I.A. can match them.
President Trump needs to punish Israel immediately, be cares about people thinking he’s weak well this is. I don’t care if his family is Jewish those interests should never allow distraction from doing the right thing.
