Is Israel's booming high-tech industry a branch of the Mossad?

Israeli companies and others are important software and technology suppliers for not only the American telephony companies, but for the NSA itself. Bamford claims that 80 percent of all American telephone transmissions are conducted by means of the Israeli companies' technology, know-how and accessibility. Thus, Bamford believes, the American intelligence community is exposing itself to the risk that the Israeli companies will access its most secret and sensitive digital information.

Wow, did Haaretz just now figured out how this scam works? It's like this: US Tax Payer money goes to weapons and technology for Israeli "defense". Israel turns around and creates private companies who commercialize and sell that technology, that's Israel's major "industry". These commercialized products are sold all over the world including government contracts in the US where (Guess what?) the same forces that lobby for giving Military Aid to Israel, now push America to buy from these same companies. Israel makes a ton of money off the backs of American tax payers, and the cycle continues. The only thing that could possibly break the cycle is peace. That's why it's not allowed to happen.



Mehdi agha, you missed a big part of the picture

Of course it doesn't make zionists or Israel look good, so we understand why you would want to hide it.

Israel would be nothing without massive US, and European support. All the technology and investment came from Uncle Sam for FREEE. Give me hundreds of billions of dollars, I'll be advanced too. So much for "necessity."

Whatever Iran has achieved is at least on its own. How does it feel having your achievements negated because your on the master's payroll?

Q - Ever wondered?.

Q agha, How do they say it. "neccessaity is mother of all inventions".

Even wonder where and why Israelis have become such a powerhouse of knowledge and advanced development in matters of national defense. Just tell the Arabs and now Iranian leaders, that when these idiots attack someone (Israel) with intention to destroy it. That country will pull all its resources to defend itself. Once successful at it, other countries will want to be able to defend themselves as well, using israel advanced technology. 

Now, if you are as smart as the Israelis are, you will develop a well advanced industry to market your knowledge to other countries. Result of which we see today.
