According to an Israeli security source, an Israeli security company offered terror-tracking software to French security officials after the Charlie Hebdo massacre – software that could have prevented the recent attacks in Paris and Belgium – but were refused due to a “higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology.”
In other words, a moronic boycott led by anti-Semites came back to bite them.
Unfortunately, many innocent people had to lose their lives in the process. The Times of Israel reports:
An alleged boycott of Israeli technology may have prevented an airport security deal offered to France after the deadly Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attacks in January, 2015. Use of the Israeli terrorist-tracking technology could possibly have thwarted the subsequent Islamic State terror attacks in Paris and Belgium.
According to an Israeli security source who spoke to Fox News on Monday, an Israeli security company offered terrorist-tracking software to the Directorate-General for Internal Security, France’s main intelligence agency — software that could have helped flag the deadly IS terror cell that perpetrated the attacks in Paris last November and in Belgium last month. But the offer was rebuffed allegedly after an official made clear that Israeli technology could not be purchased, the source said. The agency did not officially state a reason for the rejection.
According to the Fox News report, the technology searches and matches intelligence reports from a wide range of databases from around the world. It is a tool that reports claim could have aided counter-terror agents in tracking the suspects in real time.
“French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology,” the Israeli counter-terror specialist told Fox
“The discussion just stopped.”
While not naming the software company directly, the Israeli source said the technology was also made available to security officials in the US and other countries with friendlier ties to Israel:
“Government agencies struggling to foil terror attacks need access to technologies that allow them to connect their data fragments, making it possible to handle daily data challenges,” the source added. “With this system, all data can then be easily navigated, processed and represented by employing a set of powerful analytic tools and unique algorithms.”
The software, according to the source, could have given French and European authorities an edge in tracking terror suspects and even thwarted the recent attacks in Paris and Brussels that killed over 160 people combined.
Instead, it took European authorities over four months to find Salah Abdeslam, the last surviving member of the Paris terror cell responsible for the Brussels attacks and also affiliated with the November Paris attacks.
The saddest part is that BDS is not only moronic and bigoted, in this case and many others, it may have cost many lives.
