• Former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed claims some countries are in contact with aliens
  • The aliens are allegedly part of a "Galactic Federation" and built an underground base on Mars
  • The professor claimed President Donald Trump wanted to reveal the existence of aliens but was stopped

The U.S. and Israeli governments have made contact with aliens, according to former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed.

Eshed made several shocking claims in a recent interview with Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, including President Donald Trump allegedly being aware of the existence of extraterrestrial beings, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The professor, who was the head of Israel's space security program for nearly 30 years, said the U.S. and Israel have communicated with aliens, which apparently form a "Galactic Federation." He added that these entities and the U.S. government have made agreements, which include a shared underground base on Mars where representatives meet.

Eshed went on to claim that Trump nearly revealed the "truth" but was stopped by the so-called Galactic Federation to prevent hysteria.

"The UFOs have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet," the former Israeli space head said. "Trump 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."

As for when these aliens want to reveal their existence, Eshed claimed they wanted to wait 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," he said.

"They, too, are researching and trying to understand the whole fabric of the universe, and they want us as helpers," he continued. "There’s an underground base in the depths of Mars, where their representatives are, and also our American astronauts."

Eshed acknowledged that all this sounds insane for the casual listener. However, he decided to reveal this now due to how well-respected he is in academia and his belief that his peers are starting to come around.

“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.

He continued, “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.”

Aliens are also the topic of Eshed's new book, "The Universe Beyond the Horizon," where he claims that extraterrestrial entities prevented nuclear apocalypses and more.

Eshed isn’t the first high profile official to make such claims. Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon, earlier talked about aliens visiting Earth in an interview with Observer.
