US to share domestic civil aviation information with Israel

Palestine Information Center | March 5, 2010

WASHINGTON — US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano and Israeli Transport and Road Safety Minister Israel Katz on Tuesday announced a new agreement to enhance information sharing about civil aviation security incidents.

“The real-time exchange of information with our international partners is critical to our efforts to enhance overall global aviation security,” said Napolitano. “This agreement will allow the United States and Israel to better coordinate on, and respond to potential aviation security incidents to strengthen our mutual safety.”

Katz said the new agreement will “further improve the effectiveness of the cooperation between the respective civil aviation security authorities.”

Human rights groups are concerned that such an agreement will give the Israeli occupation a wealth of information about passengers traveling by air, including Arab and Palestinian persons.

Just over a month ago, Israeli mossad agents used European passports to get in Dubai and assassinate a Palestinian resistance leader.
