Israel Eavesdropped on John Kerry

7 posts in this topic

New information indicates that Israeli intelligence eavesdropped on telephone conversations by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Sources told SPIEGEL the government then used the information obtained from the calls during negotiations in the Mideast conflict.

SPIEGEL has learned from reliable sources that Israeli intelligence eavesdropped on US Secretary of State John Kerry during Middle East peace negotiations. In addition to the Israelis, at least one other intelligence service also listened in as Kerry mediated last year between Israel, the Palestinians and the Arab states, several intelligence service sources told SPIEGEL. Revelations of the eavesdropping could further damage already tense relations between the US government and Israel.

During the peak stage of peace talks last year, Kerry spoke regularly with high-ranking negotiating partners in the Middle East.

The government in Jerusalem then used the information obtained in international negotiations aiming to reach a diplomatic solution in the Middle East.

Kerry works for Israel. One would expect that they would be listening in, just to make sure he did as he was told to do.

When this happened between Germany and America, it was a furore and went on for weeks.

What to bet it'll be forgotten by tomorrow?

Israel needs to know: Is it G.I. John, or John Fonda?
