Ummm...all countries conduct espionage on all other countries. We don’t depend on press releases to determine what the Brits are up to...and Israel would be STUPID to trust anyone with their survival.
You're backing up my case. You provide all the more reason to stop this nonsensical talk about Israel being a "grateful" and "loyal" friend. There is nothing "special" about our relationship in that regard. Like all other countries, it would sell us down the river in a second, if it thought it would provide any benefit.
