A former IDF member, Israeli citizen, alleged whistleblower, and energy security expert has vanished from Cyprus after tweeting in February that the Biden administration was attempting to “bury” him.
His case could be the reason why Joe Biden ran for president, and if true, it is extremely troubling that the government would go to such lengths to safeguard the Biden crime family.
I've been arrested in Cyprus on a politically motivated extradition request by the US.
The US, claiming I'm an arms dealer. It would be funny if it weren't tragic.
I've never been an arms dealer.
DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe,Jim&Hunter Biden.
Shall I name names?

The news that the Biden administration may be engaging in the corrupt practice of punishing individuals with public legal authority has shook Israeli journalists, who are now demanding their own investigations.
“Israel should seek a full investigation of the charges that have been leveled against its national. But it also has a responsibility to him as an Israeli citizen and a senior IDF officer to ensure that his arrest warrant isn’t politically motivated,” Caroline Click reported on Monday for JNS.org.
ZeroHedge reported on the arrest and charges in detail:
“In February, Dr. Gal Luft, the founder and executive director of the Washington-based Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), was preparing to reveal damning information about the Biden family’s international business exploits to Congress when the Biden Department of Justice had him arrested on weapon trafficking charges.”
Luft reportedly told the FBI in 2019 that the Biden crime family alerted a Chinese energy executive to a federal investigation, enabling him to flee the country prior to his arrest.
According to Luft’s attorney, the Justice Department is using lawfare against his client by fabricating charges in an effort to torment and silence him.
“Luft was arrested at the Larnaca International Airport on February 16, after Interpol issued an arrest warrant against him on suspicion of arms trafficking to China and Libya. According to the Cyprus Mail, the whistleblower was boarding a plane for Israel when local authorities arrested him. Luft was also accused of lying to the FBI and violating the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), according to his arrest warrant. He’s facing up to 96 years in prison if convicted of the charges,” Zerohedge reported, adding:
“Dr. Luft is a whistleblower,” Luft’s American attorney Robert Henoch told the Washington Free Beacon back in February. Henoch said prosecutors ignored Luft’s information “and are instead targeting him with trumped-up and false charges.” The attorney added: “This, unfortunately, appears to be part of an attempt to discredit a witness with critical information about an ongoing congressional and DOJ investigation.”
However, Luft vanished sometime in March after a court in Larnaca granted him conditional release. According to the Cyprus Mail, the whistleblower posted €150,000 ($165,409.50) bail and was compelled to report to the Paphos central police station at regular intervals.
Police in Larnaca report that he neglected to report to the police station on March 28 and has been missing since then. In April, Larnaca police spokesperson Haris Hadjiyiasemi informed reporters that he was the subject of a second European and international arrest warrant.
According to the Cyprus Mail, “police seized €250,000 from a guarantor named by Luft before a court in Larnaca ordered his release.”
Luft reportedly collaborated with CEFC-USA, the nonprofit subsidiary of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC China, between 2015 and 2018, the same time CEFC-China initiated its influence operations with the Biden family. ZeroHedge wrote, citing additional news sources covering the event:
Luft alleged through Henoch that he attempted to notify the DOJ four years ago that CEFC had paid $100,000 per month to Hunter Biden and $65,000 to Joe Biden’s brother Jim “in exchange for their FBI connections and use of the Biden name to promote China’s Belt and Road Initiative around the world,” according to a March report by the New York Post.

Henoch, a former U.S. assistant attorney, said Ye confided to Luft that Hunter had an FBI informant called “One-Eye” who was “extremely well placed, who they paid lots of money to [provide] sealed law enforcement information.” CONTINUE READING…
