On March 21, 2023, the British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly and Eli Cohen, the foreign minister of the Zionist entity, signed an important agreement laying out the 2030 Roadmap for UK-Israel bilateral relations.
While trade between Britain and Israel has increased by 73% across the last decade, leading to a point where 400 Israeli tech companies alone operate on British soil, it seems a new era of collaboration is upon us.
Israel has been elevated to a Tier 1 cyber partner with Britain, which will entail deeper integration.
Few within the British elite are questioning this relationship, even after it was revealed that around 400 British citizens, including the serving prime minister Boris Johnson, had their phones hacked by Pegasus spyware from the Israeli tech firm NSO Group.
In contrast to the US government, which promptly blacklisted NSO Group, Britain not only took no action against the company at all but has now deepened cyber relations with the squatter entity.
In fact, there are several ways in which Israeli cyber infrastructure has directly inspired British intelligence services.
It is known that Israel grooms its agents for the Unit 8200 military intelligence unit from age 9.
Teaching cyber skills as an official part of their curriculum and plucking out gifted children to be streamlined into the unit through a program called Magshimim.
The largest British intelligence agency, GCHQ, has learned from and adapted this technique for its own use in schools with the Cyber Discovery program.
It is also known that the Cyber Central Park being constructed as part of the Golden Valley development in Gloucestershire, close to the headquarters of GCHQ, takes its inspiration from CyberSpark,Israel's own cyber innovation arena.
The Golden Valley Development is a British Department for International Trade project with Israeli investment that aims to establish a British cyber base in the Beersheba Zionist settlement in occupied Palestine.
The new deal also indicates that Britain will work with Israel to "ensure joint approaches towards counter-terrorism and counter-incitement against Israel on social media."
An interesting part of the agreement is Britain's promise to "tackle the singling out of Israel in the Human Rights Council."
In addition to that, the British government pledges to stand against the consensus of human rights organizations by opposing the use of the term "apartheid" in reference to the Zionist entity.
Britain and Israel are working together against the region and this pact deepens the bond.
