Professor Haim Eshed, the former head of the Israeli space security program, recently claimed that advanced extraterrestrials have been collaborating with the United States government on Earth and on Mars and that the creatures “have asked not to announce that they are here, humanity is not ready yet.”
The idea that aliens are in our midst but want it kept secret is not new. Many scientists and UFO enthusiasts have made the same argument for decades. Others, like the late Professor Stephen Hawking, believed that humanity should not be broadcasting its presence into the Universe because we have no idea who – or what – could be out there.
But Eshed insisted to Yedioth Aharonoth, Israel’s largest newspaper, that beings from the “Galactic Federation” already know all about us but do not want to interfere with our development, invoking Star Trek’s Prime Directive.
“The UFOs have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet,” Eshed said.
President Donald Trump, he alleged, “was on the verge of revealing, but the aliens in the Galactic Federation are saying: Wait, let people calm down first. They don’t want to start mass hysteria. They want to first make us sane and understanding.”
The extraterrestrials “have been waiting for humanity to evolve and reach a stage where we will generally understand what space and spaceships are. There’s an agreement between the US government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here,” Eshed explained. “They, too, are researching and trying to understand the whole fabric of the universe, and they want us as helpers. There’s an underground base in the depths of Mars, where their representatives are, and also our American astronauts.”
Eshed added that he knows his assertions may seem crazy – but he could not care less.
“If I had come up with what I’m saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalized. Wherever I’ve gone with this in academia, they’ve said: the man has lost his mind,” the professor said. “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.”
Eshed, 87, did not provide any documents or photographs proving that ETs are sneaking around our Solar System. But if there was ever a time for them to jump in and give us some pointers on how to avoid destroying ourselves, this is it.
Forty-three days until the inauguration.
