Israel reacted angrily Sunday to recent reports that British and U.S. intelligence officials spied on top Israeli officials' e-mails. "The tracking after prime ministers and defense ministers is not legitimate and not acceptable to us," the spokesman of Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said, according to a CNN translation. "There is an intelligence alliance between (the United States and Israel) at an unprecedented level, and we are sharing the most sensitive (intelligence) material." On Friday, The Guardian, The New York Times and Der Spiegel newspapers reported that the communications of more than 1,000 organizations and individuals were monitored from a facility in southwest England.
Israel has said it would never spy on the U.S. in the wake of the conviction of a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst who was caught spying for Israel in 1985.
everyone spies on everyone, the big joke here is that someone is suprised by the negative reaction, look, it will always be there, it happens in corporations, socialist or any type of government, activist groups, high school football, and even dare I say, neighborhoods....trust, but varify is a way of life on many scales, but to be "shocked" is standard reaction by anyone, sorry, but non issue, do you have any other anti zionist issues buster???? patterns can be interesting....

Buster, everyone here knows your stance on the people of Israel, time after time, it is the same target. My issue is very simple, there is evil everywhere, and there is good in few places these days. We have a mega load of problems on this smelly rock and they do not all point in one direction. You say all Israel is just evil and can do no good if they tried (the pattern I see) They are not all bad, and after the 1967 clash if you will, I would react the same. Spying is normal operations in a non trusting enviornment, and acting shocked is a standard reaction. I have many friends in places I would never live, but I want no destruction on anyone as long as they have the same heart....
