A Former Israeli Space Security Chief Says Aliens Exist And Have Visited Earth: Why I Don’t Believe Him

There was a time in my life when I was convinced that aliens were real, UFOs were alien space crafts, and the government was keeping it a secret. It was a strange time, indeed. It coincided with a phase where I watched every documentary involving UFOs, aliens, and conspiracy theories I could get my hands on.

Like Fox Maulder, I wanted to believe. In hindsight, I was too eager to believe.

I’ve since refined my perspective. I still believe there’s other intelligent life in the universe. I just don’t believe they’ve come to this planet and are hiding while the government keeps them secret, “Men In Black” style. That’s just a fanciful conspiracy theory that makes for great movies and TV shows, but not much else.

It’s not the part about intelligent aliens I find unbelievable. It’s peoples’ ability to keep a secret that big that I find so implausible. I don’t care how big a conspiracy theory you are. People can’t keep secrets, especially big ones. There are legitimate psychological reasons for that.

That’s just one of the reasons why I don’t believe the Haim Eshed, the former Israeli Space security chief, when he says aliens exist and humanity has been in contact with them. In a year like 2020, it would almost be fitting that aliens entered the picture. However, this is one story that warrants more than a little skepticism.

In case you missed it, this is what was reported by the Jerusalem Post. Now, it’s no disreputable tabloid, but it’s not exactly the BBC.

The Jerusalem Post: Former Israeli space security chief says aliens exist, humanity not ready

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.

And this by no means refers to immigrants, with Eshed clarifying the existence of a “Galactic Federation.”

The 87-year-old former space security chief gave further descriptions about exactly what sort of agreements have been made between the aliens and the US, which ostensibly have been made because they wish to research and understand “the fabric of the universe.” This cooperation includes a secret underground base on Mars, where there are American and alien representatives.

These are some remarkable claims, to say the least. It is impossible to overstate the implications here. We’re not talking about some scandal involving a politician and an intern. We’re talking about the biggest scientific discovery in the history of humanity.

The discovery that we’re not alone in the universe and there are other alien beings out there would be profound, to say the least. Even in a year like 2020 when we have so many problems to deal with on this planet, such a discovery would have an enormous impact on how we see ourselves and the universe.

That’s exactly why it’s laughable to think that anyone, let alone a vast government conspiracy, could keep such a discovery under wraps. People can keep small secrets to a point, but not secrets this big. That’s not just my opinion. There’s some actual math behind it.

According to Oxford physicist, David Robert Grimes, the large number of people involved in a conspiracy essentially guarantees that it won’t stay secret. It takes thousands of people not saying anything to sustain itself, but it only takes one Edward Snowden to expose it.

For something like intelligent aliens, it would be even harder to suppress. Even if they’re advanced and intelligent, they would leave traces, especially if they were nearby. That would be difficult to hide and even harder to keep quiet on a global scale.

This is a world that can’t even agree on the metric system. How could we, with all our different agendas and politics, all agree to keep a secret this big?

I won’t say it’s completely impossible. I don’t like being that absolute in my statements. I’ll just say it’s exceedingly improbable. I’d put it right up there with the sun being made of radioactive cheese.

However, if that’s still not convincing enough, there’s one other reason why I don’t by Mr. Eshed’s statement. It also has nothing to do with my position on government conspiracies and why people can’t keep secrets.

The man is trying to sell something. Specifically, he’s trying to sell a book. In the same article in which he makes his bold claim, there’s this little tidbit that the headline doesn’t mention.

Eshed provided more information in his newest book, The Universe Beyond the Horizon – conversations with Professor Haim Eshed, along with other details such as how aliens have prevented nuclear apocalypses and “when we can jump in and visit the Men in Black.” The book is available now for NIS 98.

For me, that’s the reddest of red flags. The man is selling a book and this bold claim is basically a sales pitch. He’s making this ground-breaking revelation that could potentially change the world. Then, he directs people to buy his book to learn more.

Anyone who has ever dealt with public relations or sales people should immediately realize what’s going on. The rule of thumb is that if it looks like a sales gimmick, chances are that’s exactly what it is. This certainly matches that critera.

Even Fox Maulder would be skeptical at this point. Honestly, what’s more likely?

Could it be that a retired space security chief is finally breaking his silence and revealing to the world that thousands of people have been keeping this secret about aliens for decades?

Or could it just be a man making a bold, but false claim that he hopes will help him sell more books?

I know the Fox Maulder in us all wants to believe, but sometimes Occam’s Razor just cuts too deep. I still believe aliens are out there and I hope they visit us one day. I just don’t think they’ve arrived yet. Chances are, when they do arrive, we’ll know and no conspiracy will be necessary.

  1. Why Most Critics Of UFO Media Are Wrong, Misguided, And Stupid

    > Could it just be a man making a bold, but false claim that he hopes will help him sell more books?

    His friends say he has been talking about this for decades – but he had to wait until he retired to publish, for fear of losing his job and his pension.

    > It’s not the part about intelligent aliens I find unbelievable. It’s peoples’ ability to keep a secret that big that I find so implausible.

    150,000 people were involved in the Manhattan project – and the secret never leaked. And no secret aircraft ever became known to the general public before it was declassified. As Ben Rich said, by the time you hear about a secret aircraft, its replacement is already flying. If you had sincerely studied this phenomenon, you would know that many people are afraid of spending the rest of their life in prison for violating the secrecy oath which they signed before they received a top secret clearance. How do you explain Roswell and all of the witnesses who saw the ET – or handled crash debris that exhibited properties which are out of this world? You are either insincere, or you neglected to perform a thorough investigation. In fact, the National Security Act was rushed into passage specifically because of what happened at Roswell.

    > Eshed 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

    And the reason for the award is secret, by the way.

    > it only takes one Edward Snowden to expose it.

    There have been countless ‘Snowdens’ in the UFO field. How could you be unaware of them?

    > I watched every documentary involving UFOs, aliens

    I don’t believe you, because there have been so many whistleblowers, and you won’t acknowledge a single one of them. The Disclosure Project is just one example where many came together – but even that is just the tip of the iceberg. And what about all of the whistleblowers who called in to Art Bell’s show over a quarter century? Are you saying that every one of them was lying? I rather think it is you who is lying about the scope of your experience and the depth of your investigation.

    > it’s laughable to think that anyone, let alone a vast government conspiracy, could keep such a discovery under wraps.

    It has NOT been kept under wraps – there have been hundreds of whistleblowers, though some only spoke anonymously on talk radio, there are many others who have come forward. And some have been assassinated. It’s laughable to think you have seriously studied this phenomenon: you could not have possibly conducted a thorough and sincere investigation if you claim there have been no leaks. Go buy a membership at Earthfiles to gain access to their article database. With luck you will finish reviewing the evidence in this lifetime.

    > Specifically, he’s trying to sell a book.

    He wants people to know. How else can he get the whole story out? At least he does not ask for “donations” for nothing!

    > Or could it just be a man making a bold, but false claim that he hopes will help him sell more books?

    It’s even more difficult to take a writer of trashy romance novels seriously – or a random blogger who thinks that everything he has to say is interesting. Maybe you are just projecting your own character flaws onto others?

    > I still believe aliens are out there

    Good. Call George Knapp and see if you can get an appointment to visit Skinwalker ranch: you have no right to criticize anyone who has been there until you have experienced it for yourself.
