A former Israeli space security chief has sent eyebrows shooting heavenward by saying that earthlings have been in contact with extraterrestrials 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 aliens 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 extraterrestrials 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.
“There is an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here,” he said.
He adds that former U.S. President, Donald Trump, was aware of the aliens’ 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 UFO 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 awards, 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 Pentagon, 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 extraterrestrial life.
“Although we have yet to find signs of extraterrestrial 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 Award 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.
