In Newsweek's

most recent report
on Israeli espionage on the
United States, the magazine claims that Israel
listened in on phone calls between former U.S.
President Bill Clinton and other leaders during
critical stages of the Middle East peace talks in

to the report, which cites British-Israeli political
scientist Aharon Bregman's upcoming book "Cursed
Victory: A History of Israel and the Occupied
Territories," Israeli intelligence eavesdropped on
conversations between Clinton and the late Syrian
President Hafez al-Assad.

transcriptions of the phone calls, the book also
alleges Israel tapped calls between Assad and
Syria's foreign minister in the U.S., as well as
discussions between Clinton and former Israeli Prime
Minister Ehud Barak.

writes that Israel eavesdropped on a conversation
between former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright
and Barak's successor, Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu. In that conversation, Albright assured
Netanyahu that "the U.S. will conduct a thorough
consultation process with Israel" regarding any
potential agreement with Syria.

to Bregman, Israel's knowledge of the American and
Syrian stance in the ongoing negotiations "gave
Israel a huge advantage, allowing them to be ahead
of the game in peace negotiations and know what to
expect in the actual talks and maneuver

Newsweek reports have
claimed that Israel's alleged espionage against the
U.S. has continued for decades, despite

Israeli and U.S. denial

Nir Rosen: Gaza: Israel, Hamas and the logic of colonial power | Comment is free | "I have spent most of the Bush administration's tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush's final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime."

Murder and Donald Trump

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.

“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’… "Beyond these assumptions lies an even more disturbing thought pattern that has failed to grasp the true nature of the political system in Pakistan. Just because Pakistan was created in the name of Islam and its rulers have Muslim names, no-one should assume that they abide by any Islamic principles. After all, Imam Husain (ra) and his companions were not martyred by mushriks; those who carried out the massacre at Karbala were people with Muslim names who probably offered salah both before and after perpetrating the crime. There is no reason to believe that they did not also fast in the month of Ramadan and fulfil other basic Islamic obligations. The present-day Muslim rulers are much more removed from Islam, despite their Islamic credentials or pretensions, because they are subservient to the kuffar and dependant on them to stay in power."
