A Letter to
Barack Hussein Obama II
President of the United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear Mr. President,
I am writing this letter as a concerned citizen of the state of Israel.
My concern is apolitical and focuses only on the future existence of
Israel, the future of my children and their children’s children.
You are about to sign an agreement with Iran. I am not referring only
to the content of this possible agreement, but to the mere signing of a
piece of paper. You are a lawyer, so I am sure you can recognize a bad
Allow me to quote certain relevant paragraphs from my book: “The
Hungarian Connection”, which you may find at the CIA library and at
Amazon. (It was authorized to publish by the Israeli Military
Censorship in 2010).
An interesting CIA document written in July 1970 that was classified
"Top Secret" was approved for release on 16th of September 2009. Its
title was "The Clandestine Introduction of Nuclear Weapons into the
US." The problem was "to assess the capabilities of foreign nations to
introduce nuclear weapons into the U.S. and to estimate the likelihood
of such introduction over the next few years."
Further quoting from that document:
“Leaders of any nation would have to weigh
any possible advantages against the grave consequences which would
follow from discovery. Despite all precautions there would always be
risk of detection arising not only from U.S. security measures, but
also from the chance of U.S. penetration of the clandestine apparatus,
the defection of an agent, or sheer accident. The enemy leaders would
almost certainly judge that use of this tactic would be regarded by the
U.S. as a warlike act, if not as a cause for war, and that it would
precipitate an international political crisis of the first magnitude.”
The CIA further analyzed such possibilities in detail.
“Nuclear weapons with weights of up to a
few thousand pounds could be brought across U.S. borders by common
means of transport without great difficulty but not without some risk.
The difficulties and risks of introducing larger weapons into the US,
even in a disassembled state, are probably sufficiently great to
seriously discourage such attempts.
Such devices could be carried in by
fishing boats or similar small craft to which transfer had been made at
sea. Any weapon could be brought into U.S. waters in merchant ships and
detonated without removal from the ship.”
About the accusations that Israel is involved in espionage in the US,
this is what I wrote:
“When an Israeli official was asked about
American spying on Israel, he responded saying, "Some things you don't
hear about; you should ask the head of the CIA. He knows." All
countries are constantly engaged in espionage against each other,
especially allies. However, such an activity would never harm U.S.
interests if it were discovered. In most cases, the U.S. doesn't need
to spy on Israel as they get full cooperation in most areas freely from
Israel, especially where the existence of mutual interests dictates
such cooperation and the transfer of information or technologies. The
fact is that Israel is one of the richest countries in the world with
regard to technologies and innovations. Many U.S. top secret highly
classified technologies were developed by Israelis. Technology transfer
and retransfer move in both directions.
The Congress is aware of that as well.
Some information in this context is known only on the appropriate level
of "a need to know basis," both in the U.S. and the Israeli
Mr. President, please read the next paragraph and note that this is
your second term as President and this act of yours may have a
significant impact on how you would be remembered as the 44th President
of the USA.
“In civilized western countries, signed agreements have value. Well,
not exactly. The Munich Pact, which was signed on September 30, 1938 by
Chamberlain and Hitler, had no value at all. When Joachim von
Ribbentrop, the German Foreign Minister, was very unhappy about it, the
Führer replied, "Don't take it so seriously. That piece of paper has no
Mr. President, I hope that you’ll do the right thing, not only for us
here in Israel, but for you and for your great country as well.
