Israeli Intelligence Minister Objects To Sale Of F-35s To Qatar

Several Arab countries have expressed interest in purchasing the F-35

Israeli intelligence minister, Eli Cohen, reiterated in an interview on Sunday that Israel strongly opposes any US sale of the F-35 stealth fighter to other countries in the region, and further stated that Israel will ask the US not to sell F-35 fighter jets to Qatar in order to preserve its ‘qualitative military edge’.

During the interview, Cohen further pointed out that Israel works in partnership with the US so that both countries can preserve their own interests, and that Israel has halted arms sales in the past to accommodate US demands.

Asked on Army Radio if Israel will oppose the sale after Qatar submitted a request to purchase F-35s last week, he answered in the affirmative.

“As far as we’re concerned, security and our superiority in the region are the most significant things,” Cohen said. “For us, our region still hasn’t become Switzerland. Israel is the most threatened country, not only in the Middle East but in the whole world, and as such, we need to preserve our superiority.”

Qatar’s request follows the United Arab Emirates stepped up effort to acquire the advanced warplanes after normalization of ties with Israel. The Trump administration has indicated publicly that it is in favour of selling F-35s to the UAE despite Israeli opposition to the deal as a threat to its qualitative military edge which is guaranteed by US law.

The White House and State Department are required to give Congress their opinion as to whether any prospective US weapons sale in the Middle East would threaten Israel’s military advantage.

US officials have said they will find a way to complete the F-35 sale while also maintaining Israel’s edge.

Israel is currently the only Middle Eastern country to receive F-35s; it has ordered 50 and has an option to acquire another 25.

Although Qatar has been mentioned by some as a country that may be among those willing to declare official ties with Israel, and has had unofficial contacts for many years, it appears that the country’s leadership is not in a hurry to join the UAE and Bahrain in normalizing ties in the absence of a comprehensive peace agreement.

Qatar also hosts the largest US military base in the Middle East, where around 8,000 US military personnel are deployed. LINK

I support the sale of F-35’s to Qatar, only because it will piss off Israehell and Iron_Zion. :)

Steve Standley

the irony is the US is probably doing it to sweeten the deal for Qatar to sign on to the abraham accord.


OH, please…Iron_Zion is not important enough for so much consideration::)) He’s just a kid!

He little Jew with big mouth, Great Khan know he live in mother’s yurt.


Am I? so why were you so scared to fight me? I did promise to come for you eventually to Lebanon and I expect you to be ready. The whole world will see your burnt bodies.


Scared to fight you? Oh please… You would be so mislead.
You react impulsively with so much imagination, such as a kid…
Learn to be adult, then I won’t be afraid to fight you

Great Khan

Little Jew say no sale, how? Jew own fat stupid American????hahahaha


It doesn’t pissed me off at all, I know how military stuff work here unlike you. Rest assured they can only see the F35 from the skies, they will not have one as long as they are considered an enemy.


qatar has managed to put in clear sight that the deal the jews and kushner has put together for uae and bahrain is one sidedly in favour of the jews in palestine and even if qatar not yet has signed up to the jews’ plan to form alliances with the useless statelets on the arab peninsula there will be little to no benefits for the statelets and thus should be avoided at all cost. the only certain outcome for the statelets when the jews pull the trigger on Iran is complete and utter ruin for the statelets. they will be easy targets for the iranian offensive missiles and will destroy the exportation of oil from uae and bahrain (and oman and so on) for eons to come.


on another tangent where the jews in palestine are concerned is the nukes the jews hold and use as a threat to the entire middle east and the world at large. these nukes must be neutered and only the world can achieve such an outcome. thus the world must unite and demand that the jews’ nukes are decommissioned asap and failing to follow such an order, be put under severe and sanctions that will spell the end of the jews’ illegal occupation of palestine.


Just sell the F35, Israël doesn’t matter::)) Fed up with SHOAH BUSINESS


Oh no my dear, Israel is the whole point of US foreign policy in the region. Look at how many duel citizens there are in the U.S. government and you’ll start to understand why.


Unfortunately…You’re right!


Qatar and Israel have a lot in common but also a lot of disagreements. Like isolation and Egypt

johnny rotten

ISISrahell is the one who decides, if he says NO they won’t sell it, it’s a real shame though, seeing more countries buying the bin paying for it in gold is a really too funny sight.


“a threat to its qualitative military edge which is guaranteed by US law.” Bloody hell that is pathetic. Israel really has cucked the U.S. government beyond belief. And yet they still wonder why so many people criticize their political influence in America.

As long they can just keep screaming “anti Semitism!” at anyone who disagrees, they can keep American lips firmly wrapped around Israel’s circumcised wang.

The leaders of the US and Israel belong to the same criminal Zionist mafia family.

Israel does not have a ‘right to exist”, because Israel is born of genocide and war crimes that ISRAEL brags about. To recognize their false claim today is to validate crimes against humanity
The “STAR of DEATH” represents the ORIGINAL “Nazis”, the perpetrators and braggarts of the Humanity’s first SHOAH: FUNNY that everything they claim the nazis did is an EXACT COPY of what they brag about doing to the ORIGINAL Palestinians.

Jews SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GOD”
Nazis SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GENETICS”.
TODAY Israel states that it is creating “A PURE Jewish State”
YESTERDAY the Nazis were creating “A PURE German State”
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword . . . (Joshua 6:21)
For modern day reinforcement of these “rules” research/google “the KINGS TORAH” is a good start.

For us, our region still hasn’t become Switzerland. Israel is the most threatened country, not only in the Middle East but in the whole world, and as such, we need to preserve our superiority.”

Funny how most of them are not even Middle Eastern to begin with.

“The first immigrants to reach the new state were from displaced persons camps in Germany, Austria, and Italy, and others from British detention camps in Cyprus. The remnants of certain communities were transferred virtually in their entirety, for example Bulgarian and Yugoslavian Jewry. Large sections of other communities, such as those from Poland and Rumania, came to Israel during the first years.

Israel is the most threatened country

Yet not once ISIS, Daesh, Al-Qaeda attacked them, ohhhh no ISIS did attacked them but they fuking apologise LMFAO.

not only in the Middle East but in the whole world

I wonder why to this day they are stealing and aiding terrorists :) People love fuking morons.

we need to preserve our superiority

Even they had the upper hand in 2006 with US butt-fuking them they lost. “superior than others” :/ LMFAO. It was the UK that gave that land to Zion to remove them from “West” so they wouldn’t make more problems and look….it worked, no “western” country wanted to give land to Zion LMFAO so they stole Palestinian land.
No matter where you look you see a British hand causing problem or stealing.

Immigration to Israel (1948‑1951) by Major Countries of Origin (#s in thousands)

• Yemen and Aden 48.3 (ME)
• Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria 45.4 (AF)
• Bulgaria 37.3 (Balkan)
• Turkey 34.5 (EU)

• Hungary 14.3 (EU)
• Germany, Austria 10.8 (EU)
• Egypt 8.8 (ME)
• USSR 8.2 (W)
• Yugoslavia 7.7 (EU)
This is between (1948 – 1951) nowaday most other Zion come from West to ME.


Qatar F35 will be altered avionics and not be able to see any israeli combat planes…


I said it few times, and people claimed I was wrong. The SF fools here should start taking my comments more seriously, I know what I’m talking about. Qatar won’t have F35, period.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
