Israel responds to allegations of hosting spy devices in Washington

The American edition of Politico came out with material that talks about Israeli espionage action against the United States.

Israel responds to allegations of hosting spy devices in Washington




In particular, the material claims that in the immediate vicinity of the White House were placed some electronic devices that could read (intercept) information flows. These spy devices were discovered by representatives of American intelligence agencies.

From Politico:

These devices, apparently, were necessary for Israel to monitor Trump. It is not yet clear whether this brought any important information to Israel.


The Israeli Prime Minister reacted to this publication. According to Benjamin Netanyahu, all these points are fabrication.

Netanyahu was categorical:

This is a fabrication. She has nothing to do with reality.

And this is a comment by a spokeswoman for the Israeli embassy in Washington:

Israel does not conduct intelligence operations in the United States, that’s it!

Meanwhile, the American media noted that Israel "could have used allied relations to obtain some kind of information from the United States."

At the moment, Donald Trump's reaction to this incident is not reported.

PS The other day in the USA they announced that they would soon present the parameters of the so-called "deal of the century" to resolve the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Billions of dollars of investment (from the Arab countries) are offered to Palestinians in exchange for rejecting claims against Israel, including rejecting armed confrontation.

      Corruption The Israeli lobby in the US is such that it does not need devices remotely reading information in the White House.
      It will be required - they will put bugs directly on the server, or directly on Trump's computer

        Russia needs to learn a lot from Israel. How they conduct foreign policy is worthy of at least careful study. In particular, how they destroy enemies.

        Bug on the server) I ride under the table. So I see how Agent Zohan makes his way to the servers in the NSA and puts something there (an enema for himself) But seriously, it’s much easier to get information through public mail servers (many employees use non-corporate mail in violation of the rules) and by intercepting various kinds of wireless traffic

      With a well-organized and very effective intelligence, as well as the tasks that confront any intelligence in the world it is unlikely that Israel did not use its own resources Any intelligence under favorable conditions would try to obtain information from the "primary source".

      The Palestinians have lived for decades "from confrontation" with Israel, and they received money "for the fight" from the same Arab countries ... This is the East! The leaders of Palestine will gladly take these billions ... They will spread them in their pockets.
      What about the people? They were taught from the cradle one thing - and now - peace, friendship, chewing gum?

      and what, it is possible that he would curl: "Yes, these are our devices. We are watching. But what, couldn't it be?" what ? It is strange to expect otherwise in such a sensitive issue as espionage. Especially between the allies - the German grandmother Angela didn’t forget :)

      It is wonderful that the Palestinians are offered to sell their national interests and their native land to Israel, and at the expense of the rich oil-bearing Arab countries, this is what I understand as the "deal of the century."

        It is wonderful that the Palestinians are offered to sell their national interests and their native land to Israel, and at the expense of the rich oil-bearing Arab countries, this is what I understand as the "deal of the century."

        70 years ago it was thanks to the support of the Arab countries that the Palestinians did not accept the UN plan to divide Palestine into two states. At the same time, repressions against the local Jewish population began in the Arab countries, because of which the Jews of the Arab countries moved en masse to Israel. As a result of the first Arab-Israeli war (the "war of independence" in Israel or the "Nakba - the war of catastrophe" among the Arabs), 700 thousand Arab refugees and about 900 thousand Jewish refugees from Arab countries appeared.
        The Arab countries did not allow the creation of a Palestinian state in the period 1948-1967 (about a third of the territory intended for the Arab Palestinian state was allocated to the Arab countries. Now, after 70 years, the Arab countries will pay peace with the Palestinians for their policies.

          It can also be added that "Fylystyn" is de facto already created - this is Jordan, where about 70 - 80% of Arabs who call themselves "Fylystyns".
          By the way, by the mandate of the League of Nations, the territory of Herodania and the northwest. part of Saudi Arabia was supposed to belong to Israel. I remind you who are not in the know:
          "In July 1922, contrary to its obligations, Britain divided Palestine into two parts: a smaller - western and a large - eastern. The eastern part became known as Transjordan (present-day Jordan). The British forbade Jews to settle in the eastern part of Palestine.

          Britain facilitated a coup d'etat in Arabia by overthrowing the legitimate rulers of the Hashemite dynasty (descendants of Muhammad) and establishing a regime of the Jhabits. For the settlement of the exiled Arabian ruler Abdullah Hashemit, his clan and supporters, the British annexed 78% of Palestine allocated by the world community for the Jewish state. Only 22% of the entire territory of Palestine remained for the future Jewish state. "
          This is for those who care about the "Palestinian Arabs", there is no such people, these are Arabs who came mainly from neighboring Arab countries to work. And by the way, even now, when it suits them, they remember this.

      Trump: "I do not believe Israel spied on us"
      http://www.newsru.co.il/world/13sep2019/trump301.html
      "The espionage charges are lies and slander. There is my clear order not to collect intelligence in the United States. This order is fully implemented "- emphasized the Prime Minister.

        We will answer the quote on the quote -
        The FBI counterintelligence department conducted an analysis of the devices so that they “tell you a little about their history, where the parts come from and details, how old they are, who had access to them, and this will help you find out what the origin is.” For such investigations, the bureau often relies on the National Security Agency, and sometimes the CIA (DHS and the Secret Service played a supporting role in this particular investigation.).
        “It was clear that the Israelis were responsible,” said a former senior intelligence official.

      It reminds me of how a "company" raised a proxy server to control users and administer traffic. To the question of the chief: What does he know how to follow everyone? I answered yes all traffic is monitored. He scratched his head and said: we need to make sure that the manuals are not tracked, but bring a summary of which of them where goes to my desk once a week)

      Perhaps this is an attempt to track down persistent leaks from the Trump team; a kind of "friendly" espionage was used, for example, by Margaret Thatcher

      Another pre-election fake from the "liberals" (democrats), with the aim of embroiling Trump and Netanyahu. This is not the first time they have tried to influence the elections as well. Last time Obama even transferred money to the open to the Israeli "liberals" in order to overthrow Netanga.

      Nothing new. We have gained experience for a long time. Communication with Rome suggests.
