Netanyahu Lashes Out At U.S. For ‘Unacceptable’ Spying
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went after the U.S. Monday for its spying practices.
“Given the close relations between the United States and Israel, there are things we cannot do, and that is unacceptable for us,” Netanyahu said at a meeting of his Likud party.
Netanyahu said he had asked for the reports to be verified.
The New York Times reported last week that in monitoring more than 1,000 targets in upwards of 60 countries between 2008 to 2011, US and British intelligence agencies tapped the communications of then premier Olmert, among other foreign leaders, according to secret documents revealed by intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.
“We do not spy on the president of the United States or the White House. The rules have been made clear. We have made certain commitments on the matter and we honour them,” Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday.
