A longtime Hollywood film producer, Arnon Milchan, confesses that he has spied for and helped Israel buy arms.
According to an Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, details of Milchan’s spying is scheduled to be broadcast Monday on Israel’s Channel 2 in a show called “Uvda”. He will speak about his operations to secretly buy weapons for Israel and his work to promote its nuclear program in the 1970s and 1980s. Milchan has said that he is “proud of what” he has done. Several Hollywood stars including Russell Crowe, Robert De Niro and Ben Affleck are also featured in the report. Milchan managed to convince other Hollywood bigwigs, including American director Sydney Pollack, who died of cancer in 2008, joined him in spying for Israel and act as a dealer to buy arms and other military equipment for the Israeli regime. American actor, director and producer Robert De Niro has said that he knew since 1970s that Milchan was an Israeli spy.Milchan also says he used at least one big-name actor's star quality to lure US scientist Arthur Biehl - an expert on nuclear weapons and a co-developer of the hydrogen bomb - to a meeting. Milchan invited Biehl to the actor's home under the pretence the actor was seeking scientific advice for a project he was working on. A recent report by American Free Press details how Israeli companies spy on Americans. One of these companies is NICE Systems, Ltd., founded in 1986 by seven “Israeli ex-army colleagues”. NICE’s current CEO is Zeevi Bregman, who formerly helmed Comverse Technology, Inc., an Israeli-run private telecommunications firm that provides wiretapping equipment to U.S. law enforcement. American whistleblower Edward Snowden has revealed that the US National Security Agency (NSA) shares with Israel all the intelligence data it secures from spying on Americans.
