Has the State of Israel made contact with aliens?
According to retired Israeli general and current professor Haim Eshed, the answer is yes, but this has been kept a secret because "humanity isn't ready."
Speaking in an interview to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed – who served as the head of Israel's space security program for nearly 30 years and is a three-time recipient of the Israel Security Award – explained that Israel and the US have both been dealing with aliens for years.
The JPost (Jerusalem Post) article says Eshed is 87, but his Hebrew wiki page says he's 81. The original article is in Hebrew at Yediot Aharonot, but it's behind a paywall, and I'm way too broke for it. But this looks strange and interesting to say the least.
This "Galactic Federation" has supposedly been in contact with Israel and the US for years, but are keeping themselves a secret to prevent hysteria until humanity is ready.
