In the first revelation of its kind, Israeli intelligence disclosed some of its information technology war tactics against the Islamic world.

Israeli intelligence allowed Israel’s Channel Two to air a report on Friday shot in an air force base in the Naqb desert in south Israel. Hundreds of experts involved in this operation were gathered.

The report showed the accomplishments of the information technology experts affiliated with Israeli intelligence agencies, which include the internal intelligence agency, Shabak or Shin Bet, Mossad and military intelligence otherwise known as the Aman. Other experts work in individual military units in the Israeli army, like those reportedly specialised in orchestrating coups in Arab states.

The report showed the experts exhibiting their accomplishments before Israel’s President Shimon Peres, who was inspecting the base.

Around 300 technology experts running the electronic warfare were mentioned by the report.

One notable feat was the considerable damage they wreaked on Iran’s nuclear programme. The report indicated that they developed a virus called “Stuxnet,” which targeted the computers responsible for running the uranium enrichment operation.

The report also showed the development of various strands of pilotless planes, which are typically used to assassinate Palestinian resistance rebels.

Advanced military planes were used to bomb a civilian car in Port Sudan in east Sudan around two weeks ago.

The head of Shabak, Yuval Diskin, emphasised the importance of electronic warfare in the interview, noting that his agency has been accommodating a lot of graduates from this field.

Failure of Japan's 'fail-safe' nuclear plants.
'The report indicated that they developed a virus called “Stuxnet,” which targeted the computers responsible for running the uranium enrichment operation.' Which then went on to infect Japan's nuclear power stations, preventing them from automatically shutting down when the first earthquake hit. This is one of the reason for the massive, ongoing news blackout and orchestrated dis-information campaign appearing in the Western media.

Israel's electronic war on the Arabs
Here in New Zealand, very little news critical of Israel or positive about Palestine, comes in our newspapers, or on our wireless. [I don't use TV]. This artical came via a person who obviously is skilled at finding diverse souces.B Bombs from eg Gaza into Israel get reported, with the critical responses from Israel and supporters of Israel. I get email information from sources in Palestine about a range of issues/events, etc, that often have serious consequences for Palestinians. I did a lot of research on the 'founding' pf Palestine - it is not a positive story, and the people of Palestine have my deepest sympathy. Jim

But we have gold plated furniture
Instead of spending money on yachts, castles, 7 star hotels, and other useless toys we should spend the BILLIONS on educating AND retaining the best & brightest of the Ummah, there are hundreds of talented Muslim Engineers, doctors, technicians, etc. who have gone to the West because their talent is rewarded, unlike the Muslim World where they are treated like servants.

electronic war
Israel is gloating and crowing about their much greater technological capabilities than those of the Arabs. No matter that much, most really, of that technology was acquired from advanced western countries. And despite the very fine professors in Israeli universities, most students studied in universities abroad. Hubris leads to destruction, the Greeks wrote. I'll say it another way: what goes around comes around. Slowly but surely. Hermes

Electronic Warfare
Oh, Lord, Lord! Israel's electronic surveillance is so impressive. Why does she claim to be so vulnerable? And with her ability to kidnap and kill Palestinians all over the world, without fear of any retribution, her fear factor should be zero. But, of course, Israel is the most special country in the world.
