Israeli spies upset by Trump intel-sharing with Russia

Israeli spies upset by Trump intel-sharing with Russia

His decision to put his son-in-law Jared Kushner at the heart of the peace process is an example of his unpredictability.

Israeli officials appear unconvinced.

Flying in directly from his first stop in Saudi Arabia, Trump is unlikely to lay out Middle East peace proposals, not least because, as aides acknowledge, his administration has yet to craft a strategy.

On Tuesday, Trump is scheduled to visit Abbas for an hour in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, which lies a few kilometers south of Jerusalem in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

"As a Central Intelligence Agency official as well as Homeland, I think it is inappropriate that leaks are coming out clearly from someone in the White House", he said. One administration official who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity said there are no longer any plans to make such an announcement.

Trump and the Gulf allies will launch a center for countering extremism that will aim to fight the long-term ideological battle to counter extremism and promote moderate Islam, the official said.

"The nervousness is that he's going to say "two-state solution" and that's going to be a problem for a lot of people in the coalition", the politician said.

Trump seems to have believed the Palestinian Authority's Mahmoud Abbas when he claimed he opposed terror and the anti-Semitic incitement that fuels the conflict, even though Abbas continues to subsidize terrorists and anti-Israel propaganda in PA schools and media.

Mr Ailes served as a consultant to presidents from Mr Richard Nixon to Mr Ronald Reagan to Mr George H.W. Few other details were immediately available, including whether the victim was taken to the hospital.

Subsequent reports by ABC News citing current and former USA officials, and BuzzFeed citing two Israeli intelligence officers, apparently confirmed the report indicating that Israel had indeed shared specific intel with the U.S. regarding an Islamic State plot to smuggle explosive-laden laptops onto planes.

"Apparently, some ministers don't understand the sensitivity of the situation regarding the embassy", the official reportedly said.

"To not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel contradicts the Bible, history and present-day reality", the Christian leader continued.

"It was in the Israeli victory in the Six-Day War, 50 years ago, in 1967, defeating the attacking armies of Israel's three neighboring countries - Egypt, Jordan and Syria - that Israel captured East Jerusalem, held by Jordan, and united it with West Jerusalem, held by Israel", WND Columnist Star Parker recounted.

A USA official said the information, about an IS threat related to the use of laptops on aircraft, came from Israel and there were concerns that a valuable Israeli asset could be in danger.

Trump said in February he was not necessarily wedded to that idea, saying he was happy with any deal that "both parties like".

Part of the problem is that Trump has come under the influence of mainstream figures like McMaster, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"While the President is empowered to classify and declassify information at his discretion. any alleged disclosure of this nature may compromise sensitive methods of intelligence collection, imperil sources who risk their lives to provide information, and result in reduced intelligence-sharing with our partners and reduced confidence in the ability of the U.S. Government to keep a secret", they wrote.
