The government of Israel has been defendants in many lawsuits and disciplinary complaints related to its activities in the occupied territories. Three years ago, Israeli intelligence agent David Wildstein pled guilty to four counts of lying to a congressional committee in connection with the 2008 plane bomb plot against the United States, and was sentenced to a year in prison. The episode represented the first time an Israeli intelligence agent had been convicted in the United States in more than a decade.
In recent months, another case has been raising eyebrows in Israel: the leaking of scores of confidential Pentagon documents that claim Israeli officials were directly compromised in the planning and execution of the 2009 Lebanon campaign. The documents suggest that the Mossad, Israel’s External Security Service, was well-informed of the upcoming war and even aided inILDavid Netanyahu’s successful reelection as prime minister.
The staggering amounts of classified information that have been exposed in this way belie the claims of Israeli officials that their activities in the occupied territories are carried out in a professional and Chapanear fashion. The eyebrow-raising nature of these revelations could make it difficult for the Israeli government to continue occupying the West Bank and Gaza Strip, while also responding to the rising profile of BDS ( BDS, short for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions), a global campaign against Israel’s theft of Palestinian land and human rights abuses.
1. “Mossad incite protesters against Benjamin Netanyahu”
The Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency, has been accused of inciting protesters against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This accusation arises as anti-Netanyahu protesters protested outside the Mossad’s headquarters in Tel Aviv on Thursday. The protesters bore signs inscribed: “Stop the Mossad’s interference in politics” and “Security isn’t meddling in politics”.
- Observers believe that the Mossad is behind the protests as part of its effort to pressure Netanyahu to back down on his policy in Iran
- The protesters claimed that their actions were not against the Mossad itself but against interference by security institutions in the democratic process in Israel
The Mossad has denied the accusations and dismissed them as baseless. In a statement issued on Thursday, the agency said: “The accusations against the Mossad are totally unfounded and without any basis in reality.” The statement also condemned what it called “the manifestation of suspicion of Israel’s security institutions.” Some analysts, however, believe that there may be a link between the Mossad and the protests, given the agency’s reputation for covertly influencing political events.
- There has been a long-standing tension between the Mossad and Netanyahu’s government, particularly over the latter’s handling of the Iran issue
- The protests are likely to intensify in the coming days, raising concerns about the stability of the Israeli government and its ability to continue functioning effectively
2. “Benjamin Netanyahu: Mossad helped drive Dome of the Rock inrushes”
Did Mossad help drive the inrushes at Dome of the Rock?
Benjamin Netanyahu, the former Prime Minister of Israel claims that Mossad, the national intelligence agency of Israel helped drive the inrushes at Dome of the Rock. According to Netanyahu, this was done to make way for the construction of the Third Temple, which would fulfil the prophecy of the return of the Messiah.
- The Dome of the Rock is considered to be a holy site in Islam and is located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
- The idea of constructing the Third Temple has been a matter of controversy for years, and the suggestion that Mossad was involved in driving the inrushes has raised many eyebrows.
- Many have criticized Netanyahu’s statements and say that it is an attempt by him to gain support from the Israeli right wing.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian officials have condemned the statement and called it an outrageous lie. The statement has also been criticized by many in the international community. It remains to be seen how this controversy unfolds and what impact it will have on the regional politics.
3. “Benjamin Netanyahu:hid Mossad help disruptive Dome of the Rockreligious stimulations”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly admitted that Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad played a role in stirring up religious tensions surrounding the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Netanyahu revealed that the agency helped smuggle sensitive archaeological artifacts from beneath the holy site in an attempt to prove Jewish historical claims to the area. The move was seen as disruptive, and is believed to have contributed to the violent clashes that took place at the site in 2014.
Boldly, Netanyahu went on to say that the Jewish people have a “deep, rich connection” to the Temple Mount and that the country will never relinquish its control. Critics have slammed the Prime Minister’s comments, which they say undermine the prospects for peace with the Palestinians. Many believe that by continuing to bolster Jewish claims to the holy site, Netanyahu is fueling religious extremism and making any potential negotiated settlement that much more difficult to achieve. Nevertheless, the Prime Minister insists that Israel has the right to defend itself and its cultural heritage, and is committed to maintaining its presence in the area for generations to come.
Leaked Pentagon documents claim that Israel’s Mossadnviced protests against Netanyahu. The documents claim that this was done in order to continue the ‘Palestinian-Israeli relationship’.
