Now, before all the anti-semites start yammering let's try to
keep the following in mind:

- the charges stem from 1980-1985

-information obviously was not used to nuke us, attack us,
crash jets into skyscrapers, hijack our planes, bomb trains
or busses, embassies or other civilian locations.

-we can assume Israel has no future plans to attack us

Let me get in front of the "rat pack" and just say
I am not at all concerned about this. We spy on England,
they on us....everyone wants to know what everyone has...
no biggie.

I agree with you with the fact that we all spy on each other; great allies indeed! But I have felt for a LONG time that the US's worse allies are England, Saudi Arabia AND Israel. As you can see I included a Muslim state and an Anglo-Saxon state so I can't be accused of being an anti-semite though I feel Israel should not receive the Three Billion+ a year in US taxpayer dollars anymore than Egypt should get the Two Billion US taxpayer dollars a year.

Israel has never been our friend. They have only used us for their own purposes. "Friends" like Israel we don't need and only get Americans killed. The Arabs were not our natural enemies until the Israeli lobby hijacked our foreign policy for their own benefit. Fry him like the Rosenbergs!

Yes it is a biggie!
Typical of you, hide any criticism of Israel behind dubious cries of anti-semitism. RACISM! RACISM! WOLF! WOLF! Israel can be criticized by its ACTIONS, not by its RELIGION. Its actions are reprehensible and thus are open to criticism and contempt.

I wonder how Israel has used us for their purposes? They destroyed in a surgical air operation a nuclear reactor Saddam was developing in 1982, the same operation the USA was unable to do in the 2000's, that has costed over 4000 American lives! They were attacked by scud misiles during the 1st gulf war, and did not react so not to muddle the water for Bush Sr. They are the only democracy in the middle east bordered by enemy states! They are the deterrent for Iran in the area, as Iran knows Israel would defend itself woth nukes if attacked! I would say it has been the other way around!

Never ever ever question that we should give blood and treasure to defend Israel.

They are a great friend even if they spy on us and get us into wars with all of the Arabs.

Victory to Zion!

Oh yeah, the neos are going to reconsider their "help" to Israel!! Israel hasn't survived all these years surrounded by enemies because they are dummies! They see DUMByia, his daddy and "dick" in bed with the pedafiles saudis "royals", who by way are enemies of the Jewish state and have financed terrorist attacks against Israel, they see Osama sightseeing the countryside of Pakistan while DUMByia is stuck in Iraq, they see DUMBYia eating lobster with buddy KGB putin in Maine, and they are going to trust this administration?

Ever notice that the only people who refer to Israel as our "friends" are the radical neoconservatives?
Ever notice that when you point out the obvious, above, you get immediately labeled as an anti-Semite?
With "friends" like Israel, who needs enemies.

Nobody who accuses people of being "pedafiles" has the right to label Bush, DUMByia, even if he isn't quite the brightest president we've had.

This is very troubling because we do not know the extent of this covert program against American interest. Is another progam going on right now?

But even more worrisome is the overt support of every crazy thing that Israel does paid for with American blood and treasure. There is no balance to Israel lobbying to make American interest subservient to Israel's. Although the Jews and the Muslims are each only about 2% of the population in the United States there are only two Muslim's in Congress. But Jews make up 10% of the Senate and the House. There is also a dearth of Muslims in the media. Is any of this good for America's Christian majority?

Since the Palestinians don't have any oil like our Arab despotic allies they are in a pretty tough position. Check and see if any of the neo-cons are spies. What about the Kristols, Krauthammer or Podohoretz or Wolfowitz or Perle or Schultz or Hannity?

Israel is a theocracy that does not welcome either Muslims or Christians.
