JEWISH AGENCY FOR ISRAEL
July 18, 2014

The Jewish Agency for Israel began its activities in the United States in the 1940's when it established a large clandestine, illegal weapons smuggling network in coordination with prominent American Zionists.

Declassified FBI and Naval Intelligence files of the illicit activities perpetrated by the Jewish Agency may be found online at http://IsraelLobby.org

The Jewish Agency provided seed money to AIPAC, an unregistered foreign lobby that has mostly captured the U.S. Congress. It was almost shut down by J.W. Fulbright, but has now crept back into America, receiving millions of taxpayer dollars for "resettlement" while in reality it continues to propagandize for the Israeli government.

AMERICAN ISRAEL PUBLIC AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
July 24, 2012

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee was incorporated on January 1, 1963, not in 1968. The articles of incorporation are on the web. AIPAC formerly served as the lobbying division of the American Zionist Council, AZC. The AZC was ordered to register as an Israeli Foreign Agent by the US Department of Justice on November 21, 1962. By reforming in a new corporation just six weeks later, AIPAC continued the AZC's work lobbying for the Israeli government. The US State Department reported in 1976 that AIPAC's executive director endangered US national security when he obtained Hawk missile secrets. In 1985 the FBI investigated AIPAC after it received classified industry information from an Israeli diplomat during trade negotiations. In 2005 two AIPAC executives were indicted (and never acquitted) for obtaining classified National Defense Information. Several formal complaints against AIPAC have been filed with the IRS and US Foreign Agents Registration Act unit of the Justice Department. These may also be found online.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The DC Superior Court and Appeals Court. Court actions have revealed that AIPAC routinely obtains and leverages classified information. No other nonprofit charity has been investigated so many times by the FBI for questionable activity.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Register AIPAC under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act as the agent of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (where AIPAC's founder, Isaiah Kenen once worked before establishing AIPAC).

What is unique about this organization?

This organization is unique in that although it takes marching orders from the Israeli government and has even introduced legislation originally drafted by the Knesset, it is allowed to function as an American charity. If properly registered under the FARA, Americans would see the communications flow between AIPAC and its foreign principals.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & AIPAC does not properly file Schedule B, and hides its donors.
