Israeli Intelligence Minister Demands That U.S. Agree to Spying Limits, Saying “We Don’t Spy on U.S. President” – Matthew Aid

The U.S. National Security Agency targeted e-mail accounts used by former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his defense minister, Ehud Barak, while they were in office, The Guardian newspaper reported Friday. It cited documents provided by Edward Snowden, a former NSA employer who fled the U.S. in May and is now living in Russia.“The way in which these disclosures happened has been damaging to the United States and damaging to our intelligence capabilities,” President Barack Obama said Friday, responding to a question about the latest Snowden revelations. “I think that there was a way for us to have this conversation without that damage.”Successive U.S. administrations have resisted Israeli lobbying to free Pollard, a former U.S. Navy civilian intelligence analyst imprisoned in the U.S. since 1985 for passing classified information to Israel. The disclosures about NSA spying on Israeli leaders led to a new round of demands for his release.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What happens when racist, alt-right, anti-feminist, anti-asian white men marry extremely racist asian women that hate asian men and hope their children look white - and have a son or daughter who looks asian?

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners?
