    Are you surprised at the spying or at their cover story?

    I suspect that the true level of Israeli espionage is far beyond what average Americans think is possible.

    That's the world we live in.

    The defense, actually, is that they're routinely used in diplomatic backchannels. I have no reason to doubt that's true. The only question is whether it is true in this instance.

    But we have a lot of countries where things are done through back channels. It's nothing new under the sun.

    As I said, that's the way the world works.

    People forget that the Clinton Administration is widely thought to have worked through "backchannels" to help Ehud Barack defeat Benjamin Natanyahu. We interfere in their affairs too.

    uh.. riiight...


    now if it were the case that we caught some IRANIANS spying....



    "I suspect that the true level of Israeli espionage is far beyond what average Americans think is possible.

    BUT, is it the way we SHOULD live? I don't think anyone would be as relaxed about spying if these were muslims instead of jews. Why should that be the case?

    HOLY CRAP! Israel? Spying? On us? Say it ain't so!

    Big surprise, it's what they do. They spy on their allies, they spy on their enemies. When you live in a country surrounded by millions of people who want to end your existence, you spy.

    I'd be disappointed if they weren't spying on anyone and everyone.

    another double standard.

    We hang people when they spy for Russia...


    but let a jew do it and all of a sudden it's the norm.


    talk about consistency...

    Except for the millions of people wanting to wipe them off the face of the earth, I feel pretty much the same way about the Russians.

    Now, the Chinese are a different story...LOL

    There's a reason for that (hint: It has nothing to do with them being brown-skinned).
