Israeli officials have angrily rejected yesterday’s reports on leaked NSA documents showing that the US surveillance behemoth has been giving Israel “unevaluated” access to documents, including private information of US citizens.
Though they didn’t totally deny the story, and emphasized a “close intelligence cooperation” with the NSA, Israeli officials said that the Israeli government has a complete ban on spying on the United States or American citizens.
Silvan Shalom, former Israeli Vice Premier and current Energy Minister, insisted that Israel has had a total ban in place since 1985 when Jonathan Pollard was arrested for such spying.
Shalom went on to declare any reports that referred to Israeli spying on the US since then as a “lie and a libel” against the Israeli government, though again he refused to offer any particulars about NSA data sharing.

They asked a fox, who is your witness, fox answered, my tail. They don't spy on Americans but they will kill them if they participate in demonstrating for the Palestinians cause. Like that young girl who was killed by boldozer while protesting the destruction of Palestinians homes.
Oh yes, Ms. Rachel Corrie. The American martyr refused justice by her government because of her 'exceptionilism'. Is america screwed up or what?
"Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 10, 1979 – March 16, 2003) from Olympia, Washington"
Is this Shalom joking? Have we forgotten about the Israeli Art Students spying ring? What I find indecent is that the NSA is collaborating so eagerly against its own citizens with the only country that attacked and sank one of its signals intelligence ship, the Liberty, killing 35 sailors and specialist cryptographers!
The NSA cadres who experienced, and thus remember, the Liberty are retired, for the most part. The crop that runs that agency now are Zionists, and they would do the Liberty attack all over again if they thought it was necessary.
~'Reformed' after Pollard? That's an absurd claim. http://www.councilforthenationalinterest.org/costs/spyin... Israel features prominently in the annual FBI report called “Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage.” The 2005 report, for example, states: [..] “Israel has an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States. These collection activities are primarily directed at obtaining information on military systems and advanced computing applications that can be used in Israel’s sizable armaments industry.” [..] It adds that Israel recruits spies, uses electronic methods, and carries out computer intrusion to gain the information. The 2005 report concluded that the thefts eroded US military advantage, enabling foreign powers to obtain sophisticated defense technologies.
I doubt anybody would have trouble finding documentation of Israeli spying/other espionage including propaganda, harassment and extortion operations here we-ell beyond 1985.
And let's not forget the IDF Social Media campaign; I've gone toe-to-to with them on the Yahoo! News comments section.
Definitely. …I'm not sure what it is that lands over here –like I remember one practically calling the whole comment's section a bunch-o-anti-sham-ites before apparently giving up. I'd have thought for a few years now that'd be the kind of thing it'd make sense for 'this side' to do ('false flag' labeling, put the other-side's positions in the mouth of an absurd character…)…but maybe that's really the way some of 'em lose-self-control.
No of course not. Their infiltrators and shabbos goys do it for them, aided by the US Corp. CEOs that support Israel.
Ridiculous. Even Israeli Art Students agree.
Well at least he just said "libel" not "blood libel", and didn't invoke the Holocaust. Still, watch out Snowden, you may be accused soon of … you know …

Americans that Israel spies on are easier to kill and swindle.
Mwah ha ha ha ha, Never spy on Americans, RIGHT
Steal Plutonium, Kill US Sailors on the USS Liberty, but never spy on Americans!
Hang on they already have and have been caught doing it!
And I am authorised to sell the Brooklyn Bridge
But all they [The Zionist] have always spied on the US in an effort to break America and it would not matter tor them as to the 25million americans are on the poverty line as long as they receive the 5billion annully.
Judging from the past and current behavior of the state of the state of Israel there is no reason to believe Silvan Shalom. But who are the people at NSA that have authorized this treason? Who are these dark actors.
"Spy on Americans?" Why not do that too, you think nothing of lying to us plus you have your hands on our wallets all of the time?
Jonathan Pollard spy for Israel – why would Israel spy on the US, every Administration is controlled by Zionist Israel-first TRAITORS to the US.
"…Israeli government has a complete ban on spying on the United States or American citizens…"
There might be a ban…but…the "spies" like Pollard have been replaced by the multiple dual-citizens (Israeli-American) who sit in the US Congress. Nothing like spiking the punch, eh? Of course, no one would ever think of questioning the allegiance of our elected representatives…
This requires an immediate and thorough investigation as to how this treasonous outrage could have been approved and carried out. How did this horrible violation of every American Citizens civil rights by a foreign government, over years of time, occur. Our government left every one of it's own citizens open to blackmail and subversion. Names must be assigned to this traitorous act and long, long, prison sentences, or worse, meted out. We have been completely suborned by Israel and it's treasonous supporters here in America. This must be stopped.
the israelis relish murdering people in cold blood. just ask the Palestinians, the Lebanese and now the Syrians. if they love to murder people, do you think lying to the world would be hard for them to do? of course not. israel was birthed in a lie and exists because of lies. but now fewer and fewer people are now falling for its deceptions. israel is one of the most hated countries in the world today and its reputation is continuously dropping by the hour.
The Israelis wouldn't know the truth if it bit them in the ass. Their lives are one big lie. It's just who they are and what they believe in. Why do you think everyone despises them?
"I would never spy on the Lone Ranger." – Tonto.
WHAT A BALD-FACED LIE! 315 million Americans just said "NO' to war in Syria. What did war-mongering Israel do? Over the next 2 weeks they're sending all their lobbyists to Congress to DEMAND that Americans go to war and fight FOR Israel. AMERICANS HAVE REPRESENTATION IN D.C. CONGRESS IS BOUGHT-AND-PAID-FOR BY ISRAEL, using all those millions of foreign aid money WE fork over! Parasite Israel needs to be DETACHED from its host, the American taxpayer, and we need to throw out all 535 sold-out congressmen.
I interviewed the engineer quoted in this article:
June 5, 2005 — WASHINGTON, DC — As the AIPAC/Pentagon Israeli espionage scandal grows, more news about the non-reported Israeli penetration of the NSA and U.S. Navy in the 1980s has been revealed by NSA insiders. Veterans of the RCA-NSA-Israeli joint SIGINT program code named DINDI report that Israeli engineer spies used the carve out contract with NSA, through RCA, to gain access to NSA and U.S. Navy secrets. In an RCA facility in Mount Laurel, NJ, the Israeli engineers had their own secured lab, and for three years that DINDI ran, they were walking out with their briefcases loaded with equipment, including scopes. When RCA engineers finally gained acess to their lab, they found the prints laid out for the Trident missile system. RCA had an ongoing contract top develop the Trident communications suite at the time of the security leak. The Israeli engineers on DINDI claimed they were from the Israeli Air Force but months later, an RCA engineer was in New York and he ran into the same Israelis, but they were wearing Israeli Navy uniforms. One ex-RCA engineer commented about the DINDI Israeli spies: "They were all a nice bunch of guys, even when they had their hands in your pockets."

LOL, I am still laughing hard after reading the headline. The Pope is NOT catholic.
Zionists would use a blowtorch to burn off the Lone Ranger's mask.
To trust Israel is to give them a knife, and then turn your back. This rogue state is a menace, and hopefully blowback will be upon them should they not quell their taste for war crimes.
If any of your friends believe this Shalom guy (or Nut-And-Yahoo), please have them contact me ASAP. I have a whole bunch of lifetime lift passes at Ski Miami to sell them.
Why spy on Americans if the traitorous NSA shares everything with them? They might be right after all.
How else are they going to blackmail American politicians into always giving them money and fighting their wars.
They have taken over our Pentagon, They have taken over NSA, They have taken over the CIA and FBI. They have taken over Congress. They have trained our nations Local police chiefs in Israel for 20 years. They have taken over security in the internet. Please read Christopher Bollyn's book on 911.

The Israeli government is planning to pour $26 million this year alone into a covert cyber operation to attack and sabotage the global human rights movement for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), earmarking large sums for technology companies to spy on Muslim activists in the United States and Europe.
