Middle East peace negotiations that involved U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry were eavesdropped by Israeli intelligence, and in addition, at least one other intelligence body was also listening in during the talks back in 2013 between Israel, Palestine and other Arab states.
Frustrated with peace talks so far, many Israelis are calling for John Kerry to be removed from the peace talks.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - This comes from the German news magazine "Der Spiegel", which reports that several intelligence services came forward with this information, which could damage already tense U.S.-Israeli relations.
During these 2013 negotiations, Kerry spoke with numerous high-ranking partners in the Middle East, and many of these calls were not made with encrypted equipment but on normal telephones with conversations transmitted via satellite. Many of these calls were intercepted by intelligence agencies, and the Israeli government used some of this information.
In the ongoing conflict in Gaza, numerous Israeli officials have been criticizing Kerry, with even a few ministers calling for him to withdraw from the peace talks.
In late July, Kerry flew to Israel to mediate between the conflict parties, but the Israelis rejected the first draft for a cease-fire. This plan did not include any language that would force the terrorist organization that is in control of Palestine, Hamas, to abandon its arsenal of rockets or destroy its tunnels that lead into Israel.
Regardless of any tension between the U.S. and Israel, on August 1, Congress voted to help fund an Israeli missile defense system with $225 million.
