A former Israeli space security chief has sent eyebrows shooting heavenw̳a̳r̳d by saying that earthlings have been in contact with ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s from a “galactic federation.”
“The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet,” Haim Eshed, former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate, told Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper.
A respected professor and retired general, Eshed said the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s were equally curious about humanity and were seeking to understand “the fabric of the universe.”
Eshed stated that the Galactic Federation is conducting experiments on the “fabric of the universe”, and that there is already co-operation between the US administration and ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s on the operation of an underground base on Mars. In 2020, the US government established Space Force, which is mandated to project military power across the solar system, which, in the light of Eshed’s claims relating to Mars, is an intriguing coincidence.
Eshed said cooperation agreements had been signed between species, including an “underground base in the depths of Mars” where there are American astronauts and a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ representatives.
“There is an agreement between the U.S. government and the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here,” he said.
He adds that former U.S. President, Donald Trump, was aw̳a̳r̳e of the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s’ existence and had almost brought it out to public, but was then requested not to do, in order to fend off ‘mass hysteria.’
Trump claimed that he had heard “very interesting” things about Roswell, the New Mexico city known for an alleged U̳F̳O̳ event in 1947.
“I won’t talk to you about what I know about it, but it’s very interesting,” Trump said at the time.
“They have been waiting until today for humanity to develop and reach a stage where we will understand, in general, what space and spaceships are,” Eshed said, referring to the galactic federation.
He said that he would have been confined in a hospital if he said those things five years ago. However, public opinions are gradually changing and he’s not afraid anymore, having none to lose, said the recipient of numerous degrees and aw̳a̳r̳ds, who is respected in foreign institutions.
The White House and Israeli officials did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment. Sue Gough, a spokesperson for the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳, declined to comment.
A spokesperson for NASA said one of the agency’s key goals was the search for life in the universe but that it had yet to find signs of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life.
“Although we have yet to find signs of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life, NASA is exploring the solar system and beyond to help us answer fundamental questions, including whether we are alone in the universe,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
Who is Haim Eshed?
As per the Jewish Press, Eshed served as the head of Israel’s security space program from 1981 to 2010 and over the years received the Israel Security Aw̳a̳r̳d three times, twice for confidential technological inventions.
The 87-year-old has a bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering from Technion, a master’s degree in performance research, and a doctorate in aeronautical engineering. In 1965, he worked in the technological unit of the IDF Intelligence Division in research and development positions. Later in 1969, he was assigned by the IDF Military Intelligence to study for a doctorate in aeronautical engineering in the US. When he returned, he was appointed head of the research and development department in the Intelligence Corps. He retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
After his military service, he was employed as a professor at the Technion’s Space Research Institute, and in 1981 established and became the first director of the Challenge Program, a unit of the Administration for Research, Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure in the Defense Ministry, which is responsible for satellite projects. In October 2011, he retired from the Defense Ministry, having directed the launching of 20 Israeli satellites.
