Something is fishy here don't you think?
Israel appears only in 77 Wikileaks docs
A study of the U.S. State Department cables so far released by the WikiLeaks showed that there are merely 77 documents which mention Israel and only a handful have material pertaining to Tel Aviv.
On its website WikiLeaks says it has so far released "almost 20,000" of the "251,287 leaked United States embassy cables."
The release, however, raised questions as it doe not contain any incriminating or embarrassing document against Israel.
"No classified Israeli material was exposed by WikiLeaks," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in November, suggesting that Tel Aviv viewed the release as a positive.
An Israeli-born investigative journalist has found evidence that WikiLeaks "struck a deal with Israel," based on which the websites founder Julian Assange would withhold cables incriminating Israel in exchange for money.
