About 19 hours ago (as of the time I'm writing this), The Jerusalem Post published an article about Chaim Eshed (Former Israeli space security chief) confirming the existence of aliens. The article contains information describing the following:
The article was updated approximately 2 hours ago (as of the time I'm writing this).
Two posts were made on r/worldnews, but were removed by the moderators (one on the jpost article, the other on the IGN article ).
To further investigate this matter, let's analyze the credibility of both Chaim Eshed and the author of the jpost article.
Basic Information on Chaim Eshed:
Unfortunately, I couldn't recover any other unbiased information on the person in question because there's been a recent influx of news sites cluttering the google search results. I had an attempt at DuckDuckGo instead, however, I only came across the ever-so-lovely error 404.
Next, let’s take a look at the author of the news article, Aaron Reich.
Basic Information about Aaron Reich:
1.Has a degree in Communications and Political Science from Bar Ilan University
2.Typically writes about historical or political events
3.Retweeted about his article on his twitter page, but hasn’t made any independent comments on the matter himself.
From the information I’ve gathered, I can only hypothesize a few reasons as to why and how this situation unfolded. My first theory is that this claim was made by Chaim Eshed to promote his freshly published book. This deduction is pretty solid, except it doesn’t explain the inconsistency of what information I could easily access and what I could not. When I reverse searched an image of the cover of his book, it lead me to a dead end. In fact, none of the search results were related to my input- nevertheless, my determination did eventually lead me to a website where I can purchase the book. My second deduction is that on the astronomically small off-chance that this claim is true, then either the US or Israeli government will come out and confirm it.
For now, I will remain skeptical of these claims until further (reputable) evidence comes to light and leave the reporting to tabloids and what not. It’s been interesting to collect all these observations about the situation though. I’ll post an update on this situation later.
What do you guys think? Leave your theory in the comments.
