AIPAC’s IRS Tax Status Challenged

IRS Asked to Revoke AIPAC’s Tax Exemption.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today the Internal Revenue Service received a 1,389 page filing demanding that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC’s) tax exempt status be retroactively revoked. The filing, submitted by the IRmep Center for Policy and Law Enforcement, spans nearly 60 years, from the moment AIPAC’s founder left the employment of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the present.

Two core charges are:

False Charitable Purpose. AIPAC has been investigated several times by the FBI and is currently in a civil suit over the ongoing acquisition and movement of U.S. government classified information. The filing argues that such activities reveal AIPAC does not function as a bona fide “social welfare” organization.

Fraudulent Application for Tax Exempt Status. AIPAC’s original application for tax exempt status contains fraudulent representations and omissions. It fails to mention that AIPAC’s parent organization, the American Zionist Council (AZC) was shut down by a U.S. Department of Justice Foreign Agents Registration Act order in 1962.

    Why we need to rein in the Israel Lobby:

    It corrupts our representative government by massively funding candidates who embrace Israel‘s agenda.

    It exerts intense pressure on our legislature to grant massive aid to Israel. (Far exceeding $100 billion since 1947)

    By stealth, it influences costly legislation benefiting Israel.

    It helps instigate endless wars in the Middle-East – most of no strategic importance to the US.

    It hyped America into fighting the Iraq war which has practically bankrupted our economy.

    It promotes aggression on Iran with a persistent fear campaign.

    It has inflamed much of the Arab world against us. – Risking the outbreak of WWIII.

    It pressures most Western governments to observe its agenda through intimidation and payola.

    It has made the US complicit in Israel’s War Crimes as outlined by the Goldstone Report.

    It has encouraged the brutal oppression of Palestinians, including land expropriation and illegal settlements.

    For all practical purposes, it is an agent of Israel and should register as such.

    It has engaged in military and industrial spying.

    Massive financial resources, smart strategies, ruthlessness, and a vast network of supporters have made it a formidable organization
