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
1999.



According
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.



Citing
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.



Bregman
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.



According
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
accordingly."



The
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 | guardian.co.uk: "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."

'Birth defects' from Israeli bombs

Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 2006 and last winter have left a high concentration of toxic metals in its soil, according to the findings of a weapons research group made up of independent doctors and scientists based in Italy.

Doctors in Gaza believe the toxic wastes, along with the trauma of war, is the reason they're seeing a high number of babies with birth defects.
