Everything you thought you knew about Russian meddling was wrong.

Israel has been accused of planting spy devices in Washington D.C. with intentions of monitoring President Trump. At least three devices, known as “StingRays” were discovered. A StingRay mimics cell phone towers in order to intercept data from devices.

Why do US intelligence agencies think this was Israel?

We always knew that, yes, the United States and Israel are friends, even close friends, and cooperate on a range of issues usually related to Iran and terrorism. But when working with and around them, its standard policy to act like you're dealing with a hostile service such as China or Russia. Israel might be our ally and our intelligence services might cooperate on the highest levels, but, on the street, you pretty much have to assume the Israelis are capable of things no other ally would attempt. 

- Former CIA Officer 

I don't know who placed those devices myself but Israel is on a very short list of 'friends' who would do that to an ally... It goes to show how much the Israelis believe certain geopolitical rules don't apply to them when the United States is involved... It seems like they have a strong sense they can ride out any scandal with their strong political support inside the US.    -NATO Official

It was pretty clear that the Israelis were responsible 

- Senior Intelligence Official

Israeli Embassy spokesperson, Elad Strohmayer, denied the claims 

These allegations are absolute nonsense. Israel doesn’t conduct espionage operations in the United States, period

So did the President and Netanyahu. 

I don't think the Israelis were spying on us. My relationship with Israel has been great...Anything is possible but I don't believe it. 

- Trump

We have a directive, I have a directive: No intelligence work in the United States, no spies, And it's vigorously implemented, without any exception. It [the report] is a complete fabrication, a complete fabrication. 

- Ben Netanyahu

Odds are Israel has a lot of America's information. Not just Trump talking with government officials, but other private talks between family members and TV hosts like Hannity and Tucker. Judging by how aggressive Israel is, this information could be very dangerous. 

The Israelis are pretty aggressive. They’re all about protecting the security of the Israeli state and they do whatever they feel they have to to achieve that objective. 

- Senior Intelligence Official

Oh, and here's Sheldon Adelson, a massive republican donor and owner of several media outlets, addressing Netanyahu.  

I keep writing in your favor. I lose $50m a year. You keep shouting at me.

This is not the first time, and it will not be the last

Israel has long been spying and stealing from America. In some cases even killing Americans.

 Here are a few of those scandals: 

  1. Two AIPAC lobbyists charged under the WWI era Espionage Act
  2. The Apollo Affair 
  3. Intelligence mole Jonathan Pollard 
  4. Two other Americans who worked with Pollard 
  5. Steven Rosen and Israel lobby illegally trafficking national security info 
  6. Weapons of Mass Destruction 
  7. 911
  8. Dancing Israelis
  9. USS Liberty 
  10. According to a 1979 CIA document, Israeli spying was so prevalent it was considered a higher threat than that of the USSR.
  11. Israel Lobby spying on Americans

And many many more. 

Any member of congress is expected to fill out a questionnaire, they evaluate the depth of your commitment to Israel. If you have AIPAC's support, then more often than not you're going to win.

  1. Meh. Canada, the UK and Australia spy on the US, and it would be the height of naivety to think that the CIA doesn’t have devices in Jerusalem, Moscow, Toronto, London and Canberra.
    Russian and Israeli devices should be totally expected.
    What’s more alarming are the Chinese devices and programs in every politician and general’s smartphone.
