For years I’ve known about Shamai Leibowitz, the FBI Hebrew linguist and former Israeli, who pleaded guilty for disclosing classified info and allegedly “spied for Israel,” which actually isn’t the case. He spied ON Israel. And AGAINST Israel. FOR America. And he disclosed the information in order to hurt both Israel AND America. That’s why it’s so ironic that the left and the anti-Semites are gushing that this is evidence about how Jews are loyal to Israel and can’t be trusted. Just the contrary. It’s evidence that far-left Jews who shill for Muslims are as trustworthy as Muslims. As in, they cannot be trusted at all.
FBI “Israeli” Spy Shamai Leibowitz Represented Arafat’s Terrorist Buddy Marwan Barghouti
Leibowitz is and always has been one of the most anti-Israel Jews and activists on the planet. In Israel, he was essentially doing Bin Laden’s and HAMAS’ legal work. And I was shocked when I learned he’d been hired by the FBI to be a Hebrew linguist. I knew this could only mean one thing: he was spying against Israel, NOT betraying America for Israel.
As a kid, when it was the Jewish Sabbath and my father wanted to teach me the Bible, we would read books by Nechama Leibowitz, a terrific Israeli Torah scholar. Her “Iyunim” or “Eyunim” were analyses she wrote and compiled on the Torah, in response to questions people sent her. She was the sister of the respected famous Rabbi Yishayahu Leibowitz, and she was a proud pro-Israel Israeli Jew. But, as I got older, my dad warned me about her great-nephew (the rabbi’s grandson), Shamai Leibowitz, whom we both considered the scum of the earth–an uber-kapo if there ever was one.
Shamai Leibowitz, though an Israeli, hated Israel with a passion and was a big figure in the circles of self-hating Israeli Jews who aided and abetted Islamic terrorists. Leibowitz was the attorney for Marwan Barghouti, a Palestinian terrorist leader who planned homicide bombings that murdered plenty of Israelis (and a good buddy and henchmen of Yasser Arafat). Leibowitz represented others of his ilk, too. And Leibowitz worked for the New Israel Fund, or as those of us in the know call it, “the NO Israel Fund.” NIF is so anti-Israel that NIF Israeli official, Hedva Radovanitz, told the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv that “the disappearance of a Jewish State would not be a tragedy,” according to a cable in the latest Wikileaks document release. Leibowitz and his pan-terrorist activities were very well known. Given that, it’s moronic–and sinister, that the Famous But Incompetent would hire him for anything, especially this. They knew he hated Israel and used it. But, hey, the FBI is known to be anti-Israel.
And so, when I learned that learned that the “Israeli citizen” and FBI linguist who “leaked confidential information about Israel” was Leibowitz, I knew the information could only be stuff he leaked because he wanted it to harm Israel. And that’s exactly what we have here. This is not a case of “dual loyalty” of American Jews to Israel, as many would love to paint it. It’s a case of the real danger to America: uber-loyalty to Islamo-pandering, Jew-hatred, and anti-Israel destructiveness.
One more thing: a lot of readers wrote me that they were upset that the U.S. spied on the Israeli Embassy in Washington, which is what Leibowitz was paid to do (he translated the transcripts from the secret taps of the Embassy). I’m not surprised this is going on. I always expected that we are tapping the Israelis and spying on them. And Israel is probably tapping and spying on the only U.S. Embassy in the world not in the respective nation’s capital (the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel).
The thing is: the U.S. shouldn’t be spying on Israel because Israel is our ally. We should be spying on the communists, the Muslims, and the crazy dictatorships. Israel isn’t a threat to America. It’s a best friend. Think of how much money we wasted spying on Israel that could have gone to legitimate national security purposes. Israel has a good reason for spying on America: America doesn’t trust Israel and doesn’t share information it’s supposed to pursuant to treaties and agreements. Among the information Israel sought and got from spy Jonathan Pollard was important information on Iran, which America was supposed to give Israel.
If anyone takes out Iran’s nukes, it’ll be the same country we condemned for taking out Iraq’s nukes: Israel.
And there are a few parties who don’t want that to happen, apparently: Muslims, Barack Obama’s FBI . . . and Shamai Leibowitz.
The rest of us want the nuclear madmen ayatollahs defanged and castrated from destroying not just Israel, but perhaps the Western world.
The only sad thing here is that Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel, rots for life in prison while those who spied for America’s enemies, including China and Russia, do less time. And that Shamai Leibowitz, who disclosed confidential information and broke the law to HURT Israel AND America, will also get far less time.
