The former head of Israel's space security program has sparked worldwide headlines following a shocking interview in which he claimed that humans have made contact with aliens and that their existence has been kept secret at the behest of a Galactic Federation of extraterrestrials. The wild assertions were reportedly made by Haim Eshed in a piece published this past Friday by the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot. In the interview, the retired general who is now an esteemed professor told a reporter that the United States and Israel have been in contact with ETs for quite some time.
Eshed went on to say that "there is an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here." Part of that unsettling pact, he said, includes a secret underground base on Mars which is staffed by a team of ETs and Americans. Remarkably, Eshed revealed that President Trump had been poised to reveal this information to the public, but was thwarted when the 'Galactic Federation,' which presumably governs intelligent species in the galaxy, intervened and requested that such a disclosure not occur. Their reasoning, he explained, was that "humanity isn't ready" and that mass hysteria could unfold if the veil of secrecy was lifted.
As for when such a disclosure might occur, he somewhat vaguely indicated that the Galactic Federation "have been waiting until today for humanity to develop and reach a stage where we will understand, in general, what space and spaceships are." While the entire tale shared by Eshed sounds like the fantastic theorizing of a UFO enthusiast or a conspiracy buff, his stature as the former head of Israel's space security program for a whopping thirty years gives the account an undeniable air of credibility. He credited changing attitudes within academia for his decision to go public with these revelations.
"If I had come up with what I’m saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalized," he mused, "today, they’re already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I’ve received my degrees and awards; I am respected in universities abroad, where the trend is also changing." As one might imagine, Eshed's statements have prompted many to seek comment or confirmation from the Israeli government or military, but neither have offered any response as of yet. That said, it would appear the interview was not the end of the retired general's intergalactic whistleblowing as he has apparently published a book in which he tells the world more about this purported contact with aliens, including how they have prevented nuclear wars in the past.
