Israel Becoming a Burden to the US, says Mossad Chief


intelligencenews.wordpress.com

The director of Israeli intelligence agency Mossad has publicly stated the agency’s concerns that Israel is gradually turning from an asset to a burden for American foreign policy. Speaking before the Israeli Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Meir Dagan said it was obvious to him that “Israel is gradually turning from an asset to the United States to a burden”.

Holy CRAP!

Ya THINK!


The former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) commander, who has led the Mossad since 2002, remarked that every year since the end of the Cold War there are progressively “fewer Israeli assets in the US”. The importance of Israel in US foreign policy was “greater when there was conflict between the blocs”, said the Mossad chief, “while this year there has [again] been a decrease” in Israel’s significance. He went on to lament the 2008 election success of US President Barack Obama, which was “a declaration that [the US] was adopting a softer approach and did not want to use force to solve conflicts”.

Well, it seems like at least ONE Israeli is starting to realize that the US is (or at least "the people" are) getting awfully tired of having to politically defend (and support) Israel.

We'll just have to wait and see, I guess, if this actually changes how Israel's government/leaders deal with their "problems".

its about time they start getting it because i know alot of people the last few years here in the states who just dont support, supporting them anymore. especially when they dont look to resolve anything but with military power, and their power is greatly overestimated.

I think you got that backwards there.

Was it meant to say: The United States is becoming a burden to Israel?

Hard to believe that Israel COULD actually thinks of itself as an ASSET of the US's when in fact all its ever been was a BURDEN to the US!
