Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner has provided a windfall business for Israel’s sub-state, consisting of retired and active members of the Israel Defense Force, Mossad, Shin Bet, Unit 8200, AMAN, Unit 81, Unit 9900, Mamram, the Israel National Cyber Directorate, and other Israeli intelligence entities, a virtual blank check to pursue intelligence arrangements that were normally the purview of American defense firms.
It is widely known how Kushner conspired with two Middle East crown princes, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) of Saudi Arabia and Mohammed bin Zayed (MBZ) of the United Arab Emirates, to compromise Top Secret compartmented U.S. signals and human intelligence reports to engage in efforts to overthrow the government of Qatar and widen the genocidal civil war in Yemen. What sensitive U.S. intelligence Kushner has provided to his Israeli friends is incalculable. It is known that Israel has managed to target, with lethal accuracy, Iranian and Iranian-backed tribal groups in Syria. There is a belief among U.S. intelligence circles that such accuracy could have only been ascertained from U.S. spy satellite data provided to the Israelis.
Israeli “businessmen” are traveling all over the world, selling governments on advanced Israeli signals intercept and cyber-espionage systems.
Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is representing the interests of an Israeli start-up, Toka Cyber, that wants to provide its cyber-security solutions “on the cheap” to both wealthy and poor developing nations. Of course, such inexpensive systems come with strings attached.
Any cyber-security system provided by the Israelis comes with “Mossad inside,” Trojan horse programs and bugs that allow Israeli intelligence to manipulate them and their data remotely. The Israeli cyber-security business initiative is being coordinated with Gil Haskel, the head of MASHAV, the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s Agency for International Development Cooperation. Haskel is the former Israeli ambassador to some of the countries being courted to accept Israeli cyber-security systems. These include Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Seychelles, and Uganda. Other targeted nations for Israeli cyber “gifts” are Togo, Libya, the Central African Republic, Senegal, Mali, Morocco, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Guatemala, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Panama, Peru, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, China, India, Bahrain, Turkmenistan, the so-called “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus,” and Jordan.
Toka Cyber’s co-founder is Alon Kantor, formerly a vice president of Check Point Software Technologies of Tel Aviv, a global cyber security firm that the Central Intelligence Agency warned some fifteen years ago was fronting for Israeli intelligence. Check Point was founded by veterans of Unit 8200, Israel’s signals intelligence agency. Check Point also maintains a “development center” in Belarus. Some Israeli cyber-security products with “Mossad inside” are believed to be re-exported to certain internationally-sanctioned countries by BELTECHEXPORT of Minsk, Belarus.
The criminal probe of the 2016 presidential campaign by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller includes the part played in the manipulation of social media networks by programmers tied to Russian oligarchs and Trump 2020 campaign chief Brad Parscale’s firm, Parscale Digital of San Antonio, Texas. Parscale was brought into the 2016 campaign by Kushner. In turn, Parscale hired the British-American firm Cambridge Analytica to engage in more extensive social media manipulation during the 2016 election. The growing cyber-industrial center in Minsk, Belarus, reportedly includes “troll farms” used for starting and continuing often vicious personal attacks on opponents of Trump.
Mueller’s prosecutors are also investigating the links between the Trump campaign; Cambridge Analytica; Cambridge’s parent firm, SCL Group; and a number of Israeli firms employing ex-Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agents. These include Black Cube, PSY-Group, WhiteKnight, Wikistrat, and Inspiration. Some of these Israeli firms are linked to Data Propria, the firm that replaced Cambridge Analytica after it folded its tent, and which is reportedly working closely with the Trump 2020 campaign and Parscale.
Similar troll farms exist in Ukraine. Cambridge Analytica was also linked to the use of Ukrainian and Belarusian “sex workers” to entrap and blackmail political candidates opposed to Cambridge’s client-politicians, including Trump, British BREXIT leader Nigel Farage, and Colombia’s recently-elected president, Ivan Duque. It is not coincidental that Israeli “cyber security” firms are also deeply involved with Ukraine’s social media manipulation enterprises.
Kushner’s stamp on U.S. intelligence is also seen in the counter-intelligence arena. No longer is Israeli intelligence referred to as a “HOIS,” or “Hostile Intelligence Service,” inimical to U.S. interests. For decades, Mossad and other Israeli spy agencies were considered as hostile as those of China, Russia, and North Korea.
