Former Israeli space security chief, Haim Eshed has said humans have been in contact with extraterrestrials from a “galactic federation.” Eshed told Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper that aliens have asked humans not to announce their arrival.
“The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet,” said Eshed, former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate. Friday’s interview, which was conducted in Hebrew, has since been translated into English by the Jerusalem Post and is gaining traction.
Eshed, a respected professor and retired general, said aliens are equally curious about humanity and are looking to understand “the fabric of the universe.” He said cooperation agreements had been signed between both species, and even mentions an “underground base in the depths of Mars,” where there are American astronauts and alien representatives.
“There is an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens,” Eshed declares. “They signed a contract with us to do experiments here.”
Eshed added that President Donald Trump was aware of the aliens’ existence and was “on the verge of revealing information” but was asked not to in order to prevent “mass hysteria.”
“They [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.”
Eshed said he was only speaking out now because attitudes were changing, and people seemed more receptive. He believes that if he had come up with what he is saying today five years ago, he “would have been hospitalized.”
“Today, they’re already talking differently,” said Eshed. “I have nothing to lose. I have received my degrees and awards. I am respected in universities abroad.”
In May, Trump was presented with the official flag of a newly created military branch, Space Force. Their focus is on space as a military domain for the US, preserving satellites and communications and a focus on geo-politics in new terrain.
Upon receiving the flag, he said; “Space is going to be the future, both in terms of defence and offence … we’re now the leader on space.”
The comment immediately caused jokes and theories to appear online. Many accounts have been created on Twitter, claiming to be representatives of the Galactic Federation.
