US Justice Department's battle to register the Israel Lobby as Foreign Agents

From Peter Myer's elist we get an update on the FBI's case against AIPAC. Wouldn't it make us all feel safer if the FBI subpoena'd Dr. Amitai Etzioni regarding what he knows about the activities of his fellow Israeli spies and lobbyists operating with such impunity at the highest levels of our U.S. government? It just doesn't make sense that an FBI investigation would not include testimony from the highest ranking Israeli military professional in the White House.

According to one of my "inside" sources, Etzioni (a terrorist founder of Israel) isn't even in the DoD database of known foreign terrorists. Etzioni writes articles about his terrorist training and his military background, yet he is never on the lists of known Zionists influencing the Bush war machine, not even when he openly holds dual citizenship. Heh. The truth is, nobody wants to talk about the whole left-wing side of the Neo-Con's Rebuilding the World agenda, because the war agenda is dialectically posed as a right-wing push to rule the world. The "conquer the world" agendas of the British Empire and the International Communists have nothing to do with the Bush neo-cons, right?

Okay. God forbid Americans who support Israel with their tax dollars should ever learn of the Soviet/communist troops' participation the creation of Israel in 1947, or what childhood kibbutz training fully entails. Etzioni's name used to appear on the list of PNAC endorsers, but it was removed. Is our communitarian guru and everything expert Dr. Amitai Etzioni the high ranking Mossad agent the FBI has identified as "Mega?" Shhhh, can't let the Moassad hear you say that!

(Btw, "American" US Justice Department's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) trains its ground troops in Israel. Israel is called the "Harvard of Anti-Terrorism." Israeli commandos work side-by-side with former KGB spies who operated inside the U.S. during the Cold War, training American COPS to assassinate suspects. Will DoJ's AIPAC prosecutors encounter co-workers that present a conflict of interest when investigating Israeli military spying activities in the US?

Declassified Documents Shed New Light on Zionist AIPAC Espionage

Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than one thousand documents released under Freedom of Information Act filings reveal details of a secret battle that raged between founders of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and top US law enforcement officials. The new book "America's Defense Line: The Justice Department's Battle to Register the Israel Lobby as Agents of a Foreign Government" reproduces and analyzes these files and their troubling implications for rule of law in the United States. "America's Defense Line" also reveals stunning details of a preferential deal engineered within the highest levels of the US Department of Justice over the course of three years and implemented in 1965 -- but kept secret from the American public until today. Old documents and new analysis from the Center for Policy and Law Enforcement raise many questions about the upcoming October 2008 AIPAC espionage trial.

In 2005, Colonel Lawrence Franklin was indicted alongside two executives of AIPAC for allegedly violating the 1917 Espionage Act. Franklin later pled guilty to passing AIPAC a classified presidential directive and other secrets concerning America's Iran policy. Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman of AIPAC allegedly forwarded the highly sensitive information to Israeli government officials and select members of Washington's media establishment. This covert leaking appears to be one of many AIPAC tactics designed to encourage tougher U.S. policies toward Iran, from financial boycotts to naval blockades and possibly even military strikes.

On October 28, 2008, government prosecutors are scheduled to appeal the ruling judge's order that they must prove the alleged AIPAC leaks of national defense information actually harmed the United States. The 1917 Espionage Act actually requires a much lower standard of proof: "the injury of the United States or to the advantage of a foreign country."

According to Grant F. Smith, the declassified documents bolster the prosecution's position that the Espionage Act should be tightly interpreted as it was written. "In the early 1960s, the Attorney General found that the Israel lobby was acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Israel and ordered it to register. Nevertheless, after a similar three-year period of delays and appeals, AIPAC's predecessor was allowed to file a secret Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statement, our nation's first exception to that very important public disclosure law. Forcing today's prosecutors to operate under a higher standard of evidence smacks of institutionalized preferential treatment for a lobby that has serially engaged in activities harmful to the United States."

Federal, state and local law enforcement officials may request a complimentary hard copy of "America's Defense Line" by sending their agency's mailing address to from a government email domain. Complimentary books will be sent only while supplies last.

Members of the public can purchase the hardcover edition of "America's Defense Line" for $29.95 at, Barnes & Noble and other fine bookstores. The 340-page report's ISBN number is 0-9764437-2-4.
