Un Américain accusé d'espionnage au profit d'Israël arrêté
Un Américain accusé d'avoir livré il y a plus de vingt ans des informations confidentielles à Israël, y compris sur des armes nucléaires, a été arrêté, ont annoncé mardi un procureur fédéral et le FBI.
Ben-Ami Kadish, aujourd'hui âgé de 84 ans, avait travaillé de 1963 à 1990 en tant qu'ingénieur mécanicien au Centre de recherche sur l'armement de l'armée, à l'Arsenal Picatinny, à Dover (New Jersey, est), a précisé un communiqué conjoint du parquet et du FBI. L'homme est notamment accusé d'avoir transmis entre 1979 et 1985 des documents relatifs à la défense nationale des Etats-Unis au gouvernement d'Israël, d'avoir agi en tant qu'agent d'Israël et d'avoir fait de fausses déclarations aux enquêteurs, détaille le document.
Ben-Ami Kadish avait fourni à Israël des informations sur des armes nucléaires, mais aussi des détails confidentiels sur des chasseurs bombardiers F-15 que les Etats-Unis avaient vendus à des pays tiers. Selon la justice, l'agent avait remis de 50 à 100 documents entre 1979 et 1985, notamment "des informations très confidentielles sur des armes nucléaires", souligne le communiqué. Les documents parvenaient en Israël par l'intermédiaire d'un diplomate du consulat israélien à New York.
L'ingénieur déposait les dossiers secrets dans sa maison du New Jersey (nord-est), où le fonctionnaire israélien, qui travaillait comme attaché scientifique au consulat d'Israël, et dont l'identité n'est pas révélée, les photographiait pour les transmettre à l'Etat hébreu. Parmi les documents figurent également des instructions sur le fonctionnement du système de défense aérienne par les missiles Patriot, classées "top secret" par l'armée américaine. Le FBI a indiqué que Kadish avait fini par avouer avoir remis des documents confidentiels à Israël.[...]
Surveillez bien le spin: les grands titres parlent d'"allégations d'espionnage"... Mais d'autres sont plus francs et directs.
Quand des sionistes se font prendre pour espionnage (trahison = très grave en principe), les médias contrôlés disent "Tel groupe accusent un tel d'espionnage". Ils vont pas dire qu'il était effectivement un espion. Ils vont parler d'"allégations d'espionnage, allégations démenties par Israel". Comme si Israel était une source fiable!!

"No spying on US since 1985" - Israel
By Mike Rivero
They hardly need spies, what with all the duel citizens on the White House staff.
But this is just another Israeli lie, repeated without question by the mainstream media:
1992 The Wall Street Journal reports that Israeli agents apparently tried to steal Recon Optical Inc’s top-secret airborne spy-camera system.
1992 Stephen Bryen, caught offering confidential documents to Israel in 1978, is serving on board of the pro-Israeli Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs while continuing as a paid consultant — with security clearance — on exports of sensitive US technology.
1992 “The Samson Option,” by Seymour M. Hersh reports, “Illicitly obtained intelligence was flying so voluminously from LAKAM into Israeli intelligence that a special code name, JUMBO, was added to the security markings already on the documents. There were strict orders, Ari Ben-Menashe recalled: “Anything marked JUMBO was not supposed to be discussed with your American counterparts.”
1993 The ADL is caught operating a massive spying operation on critics of Israel, Arab-Americans, the San Francisco Labor Council, ILWU Local 10, Oakland Educational Association, NAACP, Irish Northern Aid, International Indian Treaty Council, the Asian Law Caucus and the San Francisco police. Data collected was sent to Israel and in some cases to South Africa. Pressure from Jewish organizations forces the city to drop the criminal case, but the ADL settles a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed sum of cash.
1995 The Defense Investigative Service circulates a memo warning US military contractors that “Israel aggressively collects [US] military and industrial technology.” The report stated that Israel obtains information using “ethnic targeting, financial aggrandizement, and identification and exploitation of individual frailties” of US citizens.
1996 A General Accounting Office report "Defense Industrial Security: Weaknesses in US Security Arrangements With Foreign-Owned Defense Contractors" found that according to intelligence sources "Country A" (identified by intelligence sources as Israel, Washington Times, 2/22/96) "conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally." The Jerusalem Post (8/30/96) quoted the report, "Classified military information and sensitive military technologies are high-priority targets for the intelligence agencies of this country." The report described "An espionage operation run by the intelligence organization responsible for collecting scientific and technologic information for [Israel] paid a US government employee to obtain US classified military intelligence documents." The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (Shawn L. Twing, April 1996) noted that this was "a reference to the 1985 arrest of Jonathan Pollard, a civilian US naval intelligence analyst who provided Israel's LAKAM [Office of Special Tasks] espionage agency an estimated 800,000 pages of classified US intelligence information."
The GAO report also noted that "Several citizens of [Israel] were caught in the United States stealing sensitive technology used in manufacturing artillery gun tubes."
1996 An Office of Naval Intelligence document, "Worldwide Challenges to Naval Strike Warfare" reported that "US technology has been acquired [by China] through Israel in the form of the Lavi fighter and possibly SAM [surface-to-air] missile technology." Jane's Defense Weekly (2/28/96) noted that "until now, the intelligence community has not openly confirmed the transfer of US technology [via Israel] to China." The report noted that this "represents a dramatic step forward for Chinese military aviation." (Flight International, 3/13/96)
1997 An Army mechanical engineer, David A. Tenenbaum, "inadvertently" gives classified military information on missile systems and armored vehicles to Israeli officials (New York Times, 2/20/97).
1997 The Washington Post reports US intelligence has intercepted a conversation in which two Israeli officials had discussed the possibility of getting a confidential letter that then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher had written to Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat. One of the Israelis, identified only as "Dov", had commented that they may get the letter from "Mega", the code name for Israel's top agent inside the United States.
1997 US ambassador to Israel, Martin Indyk, complains privately to the Israeli government about heavy-handed surveillance by Israeli intelligence agents.
1997 Israeli agents place a tap on Monica Lewinsky's phone at the Watergate and record phone sex sessions between her and President Bill Clinton. The Ken Starr report confirms that Clinton warned Lewinsky their conversations were being taped and ended the affair. At the same time, the FBI's hunt for "Mega" is called off.
2001 It is discovered that US drug agents' communications have been penetrated. Suspicion falls on two companies, AMDOCS and Comverse Infosys, both owned by Israelis. AMDOCS generates billing data for most US phone companies and is able to provide detailed logs of who is talking to whom. Comverse Infosys builds the tapping equipment used by law enforcement to eavesdrop on all American telephone calls, but suspicion forms that Comverse, which gets half of its research and development budget from the Israeli government, has built a back door into the system that is being exploited by Israeli intelligence and that the information gleaned on US drug interdiction efforts is finding its way to drug smugglers. The investigation by the FBI leads to the exposure of the largest foreign spy ring ever uncovered inside the United States, operated by Israel. Half of the suspected spies have been arrested when 9-11 happens. On 9-11, 5 Israelis are arrested for dancing and cheering while the World Trade Towers collapse. Supposedly employed by Urban Moving Systems, the Israelis are caught with multiple passports and a lot of cash. Two of them are later revealed to be Mossad. As witness reports track the activity of the Israelis, it emerges that they were seen at Liberty Park at the time of the first impact, suggesting a foreknowledge of what was to come. The Israelis are interrogated, and then eventually sent back to Israel. The owner of the moving company used as a cover by the Mossad agents abandons his business and flees to Israel. The United States Government then classifies all of the evidence related to the Israeli agents and their connections to 9-11. All of this is reported to the public via a four part story on Fox News by Carl Cameron. Pressure from Jewish groups, primarily AIPAC, forces Fox News to remove the story from their website. Two hours prior to the 9-11 attacks, Odigo, an Israeli company with offices just a few blocks from the World Trade Towers, receives an advance warning via the internet. The manager of the New York Office provides the FBI with the IP address of the sender of the message, but the FBI does not follow up.
2001 The FBI is investigating 5 Israeli moving companies as possible fronts for Israeli intelligence.
2001 JDL's Irv Rubin arrested for planning to bomb a US Congressman. He dies before he can be brought to trial.
2002 The DEA issues a report that Israeli spies, posing as art students, have been trying to penetrate US Government offices.
2002 police near the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in southern Washington State stop a suspicious truck and detain two Israelis, one of whom is illegally in the United States. The two men were driving at high speed in a Ryder rental truck, which they claimed had been used to "deliver furniture." The next day, police discovered traces of TNT and RDX military-grade plastic explosives inside the passenger cabin and on the steering wheel of the vehicle. The FBI then announces that the tests that showed explosives were "false positived" by cigarette smoke, a claim test experts say is ridiculous. Based on an alibi provided by a woman, the case is closed and the Israelis are handed over to INS to be sent back to Israel. One week later, the woman who provided the alibi vanishes.
2003 The Police Chief of Cloudcroft stops a truck speeding through a school zone. The drivers turn out to be Israelis with expired passports. Claiming to be movers, the truck contains junk furniture and several boxes. The Israelis are handed over to immigration. The contents of the boxers are not revealed to the public.
2003 Israel deploys assassination squads into other countries, including the United States. The US Government does not protest.
2004 Police near the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Tennessee stop a truck after a three mile chase, during which the driver throws a bottle containing a strange liquid from the cab. The drivers turn out to be Israelis using fake Ids. The FBI refuses to investigate and the Israelis are released.
2004 Two Israelis try to enter Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, home to eight Trident submarines. The truck tests positive for explosives.
2004 The AIPAC spy scandal. For the first time, the conduit from Israel through AIPAC into the Pentagon Office of Special Projects, from which most of the lies that led to the war in Iraq emerged, is revealed to the general public. Although the investigation into AIPAC spyring was known inside the government going back to 2002, US Congressmen and Presidential candidates continue to accept money from AIPAC in exchange for supporting Israel. -M.R.
‘Ally’ Caught Spying on U.S. Yet Again
Jewish-American engineer latest in long line of Israeli agents nabbed stealing military secrets
By the Staff of American Free Press
The arrest of a New Jersey engineer on charges of conspiracy to pass U.S. military secrets to Israel shows a consistent, continued pattern of spying on its major benefactor, the United States, according to espionage experts.
“The Israelis have always been active intelligence collectors in the U.S. It’s just a matter of time in terms of when we have sufficient evidence to bring one of the cases,” said John Martin, retired senior U.S. Department of Justice executive who oversaw the investigation and prosecution of espionage cases in the U.S. for more than 30 years, including that of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. Pollard is currently serving his 23rd year of a life sentence in federal prison in North Carolina for passing highly classified information to Israel.
“[The Israelis] got caught again, and they’ll get caught again after this,” said Martin, referring to the recent indictment by the U.S. government of Ben-Ami Kadish, a former U.S. military engineer who allegedly helped give restricted nuclear weapons data, classified jet fighter weapons system data and key information on the Patriot missile system to Israel between 1979 and 1985.
Martin said Pollard and Kadish likely did not know each other. “As a matter of trade-craft, the Israeli intelligence service would not want one operative to know the other unless it was absolutely necessary, and it does not appear to have been necessary.
Pollard was in the Navy stealing highly classified communication information while Kadish was getting information on the latest developments in aircraft technology,” said Martin.
Pollard’s wife Esther, who married Pollard after he was sent to prison, told ABC News that her husband was in no way connected to Kadish. “Any attempt to connect these allegations to my husband adds insult to injury. He has served more than five times the usual time for espionage,” she said. Pollard’s first wife, Anne, served three and a half years of a five-year sentence on a charge related to Pollard’s.
Kadish was charged with conspiracy to violate the Espionage Act, which is a capital offense. The U.S. does not usually seek the death penalty for such a charge, according to Martin. Kadish’s lawyer, Bruce Goldstein, said Kadish has entered a plea of not guilty. He would not comment further.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, Arye Mekel, said he knew nothing about the case against Kadish. “We heard about it from the media,” he said, but would not comment further.

Arrest of Israeli Spy Meant to Prevent Release of Pollard
by Mark Glenn
May 9, 2008
In late April, Ben Ami Kadish, an engineer working at the U.S. Army Armament Research Development and Engineering Center at the Picatinny Arsenal in Dover, New Jersey was arrested by the FBI on charges he spied for Israel. According to the charges brought against him by the US Justice Department, Kadish (an American citizen who also fought in the Jewish Haganah in the early days of Israel’s beginnings) passed along top secret information to the Jewish state at approximately the same time Jonathan Pollard acted as a spy back in the 1980’s. In addition, Kadish’s handler is said to be Yosef Yagur, the same scientific attaché at the Israeli consulate in New York who handled Pollard.
As with all things dealing the truly ugly side of Israel’s organically-criminal nature, the story was reluctantly covered by the mainstream media in America that made more of the fact that the spying happened a long time ago and ‘isn’t it awful how mean old Uncle Sam is being so rough’ on such a kind, soft-spoken 84 year-old man who donated time and money to worthy Jewish causes. Op-Ed pieces appearing in Jewish-controlled opinion-making outlets accused the USDOJ of the usual business of anti-Semitism and of being pro-Arab while saying nothing of the fact that Kadish passed along nuclear weapons-related secrets to the same Jewish state that years ago sold America’s most sensitive national security information to her then mortal enemy, the Soviet Union.
As it appears however, there is more to the arrest of Kadish than meets the eye. The fact that the USDOJ has chosen to arrest Kadish now, some 20 years after the fact suggests it is a ‘shot across the bow’, meaning a deliberate attempt by rogue elements working in the USDOJ to prevent the release of another spy who stands to do even more damage to US national security than he already did, Jonathan Pollard.
In stories that made little (if any) news in the US, the theme of Pollard’s imminent release from the Butner, North Carolina prison cell where he justly rots away played an unmistakably prominent part of George Bush’s first presidential trip to Israel back in January. With great media fanfare, a section in downtown Jerusalem was renamed ‘Freedom for Jonathon Pollard Square’ a mere few days before Bush’s arrival. Upon landing at Ben Gurion airport he was then deluged with calls to release the convicted spy for Israel who did more damage to US national security than the Rosenbergs could have dreamed of doing if they had a thousand lifetimes. He was later greeted by prominent rabbis and other supporters who called upon him to ‘do God’s will’ by releasing Pollard and who then threatened ‘unpleasant consequences’ if their demands weren’t met. Later in his visit Bush met with Rafael Eitan, the spymaster who oversaw the entire 18 month operation during which Pollard passed over 800,000 pages of SCI (sensitive compartmented information) to the Jewish state. Eitan, knick-named ‘stinking Raffi’ has not stepped foot in the US since that time for fear of being arrested by the FBI, and yet, after the meeting where Bush personally shook his hand as if a deal had been made between the two, Eitan was quoted by the Israeli press saying ‘Pollard will be home soon’.
And all of these items–coupled with the fact George Bush is scheduled to return to Israel in May to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Israel’s return from the grave–indicates that indeed a deal was made for the American president to bring Pollard along with him as a nice fat birthday present to the same Jewish state that pulls Bush’s strings and has been seeking the release of the convicted spy for over a decade.
Those who understand how thoroughly-saturated the US government is by Zionist agents of influence will no doubt be scratching their heads over this one, asking out loud why Uncle Sam would do such a thing if (as is the case) America is truly a puppet to Jewish interests. Such persons will point to the fact that the war in Iraq and Afghanistan were (and are) being fought for Israel as well as the fact that in the days and weeks following 911 hundreds of spies working for Mossad were quietly sent back to Israel with little to any media overage.
The answer is simple. In the first case, every prostitute–regardless of the degrading way she earns her daily bread–has limits on what she is willing to endure. But even more important is the fact there are rogue elements working in the areas such as the USDOJ, military, and various intelligence agencies who recognize America is in more danger now than ever before in her history and who are working actively to circumvent Bush and Co from completing America’s present apocalyptic dance with the grim reaper. Proof these rogue elements exist was demonstrated loudly and boldly back in December of 2007 with the release of the National Intelligence Estimate that stated unequivocally Iran was not (and had not been for several years) trying to develop nuclear weapons. With the release of this document, what these rogue elements sought to do (and achieved) was to take yank the car keys away from a drunkard about to go on a killing spree for Israel’s benefit. The reader will recall the remarks of Admiral William Fallon, commander of CENTCOM (before being ‘retired’ and replaced with the slavish, servile and politically-ambitious Gen. David Petraeus) that ‘we’re trying to put the crazies back in the box’, the ‘crazies’ in this case being a recovering alcoholic-turned apocalyptic born-again Christian who thinks God tells him to go to war against Israel’s enemies, both in the Middle East and beyond. The fact that this report was released just a few days short of Dec 7–‘Pearl Harbor Day’–suggests it was done to preempt a planned US/Israeli false flag attack on a US ship stationed in the Persian Gulf that would naturally be blamed on Iran.
There are other practical reasons for the timing of this present spy scandal involving Ben Ami Kadish being released now as well. Ever since the days of the Reagan administration, counter-intelligence assets in the US have been searching for ‘Mega’ a code-named operative working for Israel at the highest levels of the US government acting as an uber-spy for all kinds of operations. From his (or her) high position, sayanim (Zionist spies) operating throughout the US defense and intelligence agencies have been directed to perform all sorts of tasks including the theft of industrial and national security secrets. The fact that Kadish was tasked with pilfering specifically-named documents means that someone high up in US national security circles knew of their existence. One such person suspected of being ‘Mega’ is former #3 man at the state department Marc Grossman who, as indicated by the testimony of former FBI translator Sibel Edmunds, arranged for high-level security clearances for Israeli spies working in sensitive areas of the US national security establishment. In short, the Kadish affair may be a way of preparing the American people for a soon-to-be unfolding scandal of–for lack of a better word, biblical proportions. As well, the release of Pollard from prison, in addition to giving the green light to otherwise-reluctant Zionist assets deeply-embedded in the US national security establishment–would initiate ‘Pt II’ of the nightmare that began some 20 years ago, since he is referred to as a ‘walking library’ of sensitive information, the release of which can still do substantial harm to the US.
While there is reason for hope there is also reason for caution in this latest development involving the spy Kadish. If Israel does not get her boy (Pollard) back this time around rest assured she will not give up. Neocons associated with a future President John McCain will no doubt achieve with him what they were not able to get with George Bush.
Besides, it’s not as if Bush is going to the birthday bash completely empty-handed, as California governor Arnold Shwarzenegger has just authorized the release of 30 Israeli felons (convicted of murder, drug running, money laundering, fraud and whatnot) from the prisons in his state so that they can make aliyah back to Israel.
