TUCSON -- In a shocking development, Homeland Security has given the $145 million border security contract to the Israeli Apartheid contractor Elbit Systems. The Israeli security contract is set to begin on the Arizona border and span eight years. The area includes the Tohono O'odham Nation.
Currently, over the objections of grassroots Tohono O'odham, the US is constructing more new US spy towers around the homes of O'odham on the western side of the Tohono O'odham Nation, according to O'odham who live there.
The Homeland Security contract to Israelis comes just after another Israeli contractor, BrightSource Energy, built the mega solar project in the Mojave desert. Obama touted the solar project as an American dream and proof of a recovering economy -- without revealing that it was constructed by an Israeli company.
Meanwhile in Palestine, Elbit Systems, an Israeli defense contractor, is responsible for the Apartheid security surrounding Palestine.

The elected Tohono O'odham government -- in its deals with the US government -- has granted access to the US for these spy towers, according to council resolutions.
The Tohono O'odham has also granted expanded land for US Border Patrol camps, even though it is widely known that the US Border Patrol agents are running drugs and escorting the cartel loads across the border. The Tohono O'odham government, as revealed in council resolutions, is also accepting funding from the US for controversial programs like Operation Stone Garden targeting migrants, which is protested by human rights groups.
As for the US spy towers on the border, the US already spent $1 billion on spy towers in Arizona that Homeland Security said did not work. Most ten-year-olds with a computer could have told them their wi-fi would not penetrate the fortress like mountains of the Arizona border.
Speaking on Palestine, Russell Means, Lakota, said, “Every policy the Palestinians are now enduring was practiced on the American Indian,” Means said. “What the American Indian Movement says is that the American Indians are the Palestinians of the United States, and the Palestinians are the American Indians of the Middle East,” Means said. Further, he points out that the Zionists who control Israel now control the United States. “The power of the US in world politics diminishes every day.”
Meanwhile, why does the US need to give Israelis $145 million to build more spy towers and have access to sovereign Tohono O'odham land?
During the construction of the $1 billion boondoggle of spy towers that did not work on the US Mexico border, Boeing subcontracted Elbit Systems. In the beginning, the secrecy was exposed when Arizona residents began asking why there were Israelis riding around on off terrain vehicles along the Arizona border.
The increased US Mexico border security is even more bizarre when one considers the number of US Border Patrol agents being arrested and convicted for drug smuggling. At the Arizona border, Border Patrol agents escort the cartels through with their loads. The Border Patrol agents also serve as "spotters" for the cartels to bring the drug loads through. Hundreds of Border Patrol agents, and ICE agents, have been arrested and convicted, according to testimony before Congress.
Further, the US satellite photos are as clear as if someone was standing there with a camera. In other words, the US knows exactly who is running drugs and the location of everyone involved.
