Mossad in America

Israeli intelligence steps up its activity in the U.S. — and gets away with it.

By Philip Giraldi

August 25, 2010 " American Conservative" - -Israeli government claims
that it does not spy on the United States are intended for the media
and popular consumption. The reality is that Israel's intelligence
agencies target the United States intensively, particularly in pursuit
of military and dual-use civilian technology. Among nations considered
to be friendly to Washington, Israel leads all others in its active
espionage directed against American companies and the Defense
Department. It also dominates two commercial sectors that enable it to
extend its reach inside America's domestic infrastructure: airline and
telecommunications security. Israel is believed to have the ability to
monitor nearly all phone records originating in the United States,
while numerous Israeli air-travel security companies are known to act
as the local Mossad stations.

As tensions with Iran increase, sources in the counterintelligence
community report that Israeli agents have become more aggressive in
targeting Muslims living in the United States as well as in operating
against critics. There have been a number of cases reported to the FBI
about Mossad officers who have approached leaders in Arab-American
communities and have falsely represented themselves as "U.S.
intelligence." Because few Muslims would assist an Israeli, this is
done to increase the likelihood that the target will cooperate. It's
referred to as a "false flag" operation.

Mossad officers sought to recruit Arab-Americans as sources willing to
inform on their associates and neighbors. The approaches, which took
place in New York and New Jersey, were reportedly handled clumsily,
making the targets of the operation suspicious. These Arab-Americans
turned down the requests for cooperation, and some of the contacts
were eventually reported to the FBI, which has determined that at
least two of the Mossad officers are, ironically, Israeli Arabs
operating out of Israel's mission to the United Nations in New York
under cover as consular assistants.

In another bizarre case, U.S.S. Liberty survivor Phil Tourney was
recently accosted in Southern California by a foreigner who eventually
identified himself as an Israeli government representative. Tourney
was taunted, and the Israeli threatened both him and journalist Mark
Glenn, who has been reporting on the Liberty story. Tourney was
approached in a hotel lounge, and it is not completely clear how the
Israeli was able to identify him. But he knew exactly who Tourney was,
as the official referred to the Liberty, saying that the people who
had been killed on board had gotten what they deserved. There were a
number of witnesses to the incident, including Tourney's wife. The
threat has been reported to the FBI, which is investigating, but
Tourney and Glenn believe that the incident is not being taken
seriously by the bureau.

FBI sources indicate that the increase in Mossad activity is a major
problem, particularly when Israelis are posing as U.S. government
officials, but they also note that there is little they can do to stop
it as the Justice Department refuses to initiate any punitive action
or prosecutions of the Mossad officers who have been identified as
involved in the illegal activity.

In another ongoing Israeli spy case, Stewart Nozette appears to be
headed towards eventual freedom as his case drags on through the
District of Columbia courts. Nozette, an aerospace scientist with a
top secret clearance and access to highly sensitive information,
offered to sell classified material to a man he believed to be a
Mossad officer, but who instead turned out to be with the FBI. Nozette
has been in jail since October, but he has now been granted an
additional 90-day delay so his lawyers can review the documents in the
government's case, many of which are classified. If Nozette demands
that sensitive information be used in his defense, his case will
likely follow the pattern set in the nine-times-postponed trial of
AIPAC spies Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, who were ultimately
acquitted in April 2009 when prosecutors determined that they could
not make their case without doing significant damage to national
security. A month after Rosen and Weissman were freed, Ben-Ami Kadish,
who admitted to providing defense secrets to Israel while working as
an engineer at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, walked out of a
Manhattan court after paying a fine. He did no jail time and continues
to receive his substantial Defense Department pension.

The mainstream media reported the Rosen and Weissman trial
intermittently, but there was virtually no coverage of Ben-Ami Kadish,
and there has been even less of Nozette. Compare that with the recent
reporting on the Russian spies who, by all accounts, did almost
nothing and never obtained any classified information. It is hard to
avoid the conclusion that spying for Israel is consequence free.

some U.S. investigators believe that there are Israelis again very
much engaged in spying in and on the U.S., who may have known things
they didn't tell us before September 11.
