• Israeli military arms manufacturers provide border security for America.
By Ronald L. Ray —
Why are Israeli companies heavily involved in the United States federal government’s alleged efforts to “close” our unprotected borders and keep out tidal waves of aliens illegally invading our country? To find out, AMERICAN FREE PRESS interviewed Tucson, Arizona resident Todd Miller, author of the book Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security, who has uncovered highly troubling facts about Israel’s long-term, ever-deepening involvement in “securing the American homeland” after September 11, 2001.
Miller has traveled extensively to investigate border issues for several years—not just at the U.S.-Mexico border, but also the frontier with Canada and those overseas. As his colleague, Gabriel Schivone, has noted, “Miller wasn’t looking for Israel anywhere. Yet the state’s agents kept surfacing at every turn.”
On one hand, Miller told AFP: “It doesn’t even matter who it is. It’s simply the privatization of border security. . . . It’s also a lot of U.S. companies.”
He explains that the military-industrial complex has imposed a profit-seeking big business model of constant sales expansion onto a border security situation, causing spiraling militarization of our nation’s boundaries.
On the other, “One [thing] that has to be looked at is the root causes of why people would move from one place to another” for the sake of a job, said Miller.
Miller blames the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as a primary factor. Like in the U.S., “free trade” has, for example, allowed agri-business giants to impoverish Mexican family farmers by gobbling up the market. Miller says the militaristic “deterrence” model in border enforcement will not resolve this. The problem of illegal aliens will continue until the socioeconomics are addressed.
Ironically, notes Miller, the very business of forcefully trying to keep out foreigners has led to a collapse of border limitations for “homeland security” companies.
“Homeland security means NAFTA,” he states.
Miller remarks that the Zionist state has the largest number—hundreds—of companies producing “homeland security technologies.” When industry bigwigs think of border control, they think “Israel,” which has decades of experience in the forceful containment of the large Palestinian population.
Israel’s biggest military manufacturer, Elbit Systems Ltd., for example, developed and perfected the surveillance and weapons used to enforce the brutal Zionist occupation, using Palestinians as dehumanized “guinea pigs.” Boasting about their construction of Gazan and West Bank prison walls, Elbit and many others now peddle their wares to Americans.
American politicians have responded by abandoning U.S. manufacturers and U.S. workers, awarding the largest border contracts to Israelis, who have produced drones, specialty radar and cameras, “virtual” and actual fencing and walls and other technologies ostensibly used to keep out illegal aliens. Israel’s Golan Group even provides military training in such areas as hand-to-hand combat and “pro-active” SUV use.
Arizona officials, like Tucson’s Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, rave over incestuous business partnerships, such as those of the University of Arizona with Israeli companies, crowing about the jobs they allegedly will produce. But the impoverished 23% of Tucsonans will unlikely see any of them. Israelis typically outsource ordinary manufacturing jobs to Mexicans, who are paid around $6 per day. This crass exploitation will only exacerbate the problem it purports to solve.
More disturbing are the U.S.’s 100-mile-wide “border zones,” within which Customs and Border Protection (CBP) exercises vast, extra-constitutional police powers against citizens as readily as aliens. Miller points out that 200 million Americans—two thirds of the nation—live within that zone encircling the continental 48 states. Anywhere within it, including Tucson, CBP sets up daily “border checkpoints” and engages in mass surveillance, harassment, searches, seizures and detainment—even of citizens—with no regard for the Fourth Amendment. School buses and emergency vehicles are no exception.
Arizona increasingly resembles Palestine in another way, too. The sovereignty of American Indian nations, like the Tohono O’odham people, is consistently violated. Tribal members complain of a U.S. “occupation,” which subjects them to hostile “border checkpoints” at the reservation edge and has included terrifying nighttime home invasions on reservation territory.
AFP wonders about the purpose of it all. There is no serious or successful effort to keep out the invaders or address the root economic problem. Horror stories from the border zone suggest that all this technology and weaponry really may be intended to fence in and control Americans—everywhere.
But again, why Israeli companies? What is the hidden purpose? Should we trust our security to the people who attacked the USS Liberty and brought us the Jewish Defense League and infamous spies like Lawrence Franklin at AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee], Richard Smyth and Jonathan and Anne Pollard? Why should Israelis provide cyber-security to the U.S. government and businesses?
We see how Israel treats the Palestinians. Evidence near our border already demonstrates that it views Americans the same way.
Will Americans turn back this insidious, high-technology invasion masquerading as “business,” or will we become slaves of the Zionist New World Order?
