|it's not true that there is nothing negative about israel, either. (see below, based on raimondo's recent piece). what the tight-lipped US diplo leaks relating to Israel shows is the fear that US diplos have of saying anything negative about Israel. possibly too, Israeli control of virtually all US communications networks (and most likely having developed their own more secure ones for such sensitive exchanges) has something to do with what ended up getting leaked. the leaks lead to more questions, not answers.|
Israel mafia activities are a serious concern to both the CIA and the State Department as revealed in the November 2010 Wikileaks. A May 15 2009 cable "Israel, A Promised Land for Organized Crime?" from the US embassy in Tel Aviv refers to leading mafia figures trying to get visas to attend a "security-related convention" in Las Vegas. "Zvika Ben Shabat, Yaacov Avitan, and Tzuri Roka requested visas ... many known OC figures hold valid tourist visas to the United States and travel freely." Zvika Ben Shabat is president of H.A.Sh Security Group, a joint venture with India's giant Micro-Technologies, building a "command and control centre" in Mumbai, scene of the Chabad House bombing (see Cultural Wars). They export security technologies for identification and monitoring of cell phones, vehicles, structures, computers, infrastructures and WIFI technologies to Europe and Africa. The chairman of H.A.Sh Security is retired Major General Dan Ronen, who led the overall forces and systems during the invasion of Lebanon in 2006. Many such members of "OC" (organized crime) "slip through the consular cracks". Israeli organized crime operates in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Canada, Israel and Egypt especially in cocaine and ecstasy trafficking, and credit card and computer fraud. A 1997 Los Angeles federal and state investigation soured because the Israeli drug dealers were monitoring the police communications.
A CIA investigation later concluded, "The organization has apparent extensive access to database systems to identify pertinent personal and biographical information." The intimate connection between senior Israel politicians and the mafia, especially in communications security technology now used around the world, makes clear the immense power now available for Israel to pursue plans outside of US control, and with the extensive array of local US soft power, to forestall any US government attempts to pressure Israel into following a US agenda.
