guaranteed confidentiality and compiled the data into a classified

petition reveal AIPAC’s legislative director made illicit

FBI interviewed Israeli Minister of Economics Dan Halpern who

The FBI uncovered allegations that an agent of the Israeli intelligence services worked undercover as a member of AIPAC’s staff.

    A quarter century after the tainted negotiations led to passage of US-Israel preferential trade pact, it remains the most unfavorable of all US bilateral trade agreements, producing chronic deficits, lack of US market access to Israel and ongoing theft of US intellectual property.
