Illegal Israeli transfers of US military technology "sensitive U.S. Munitions List items and technology are used only for authorized purposes."

In March of 1992 US State Department inspector general Sherman Funk issued a classified report about illegal Israeli transfers of US military technology. The report finds Israel "is systematically violating U.S. arms control laws." The "Blue Lantern" system used in-country checks conducted by Customs officials or other qualified US embassy personnel to verify that "sensitive U.S. Munitions List items and technology are used only for authorized purposes." 
The audit uncovered a breakdown in US inspection regimes. The State Department relied on "government to government" assurances that items were not "retransferred" or "used for unauthorized purposes." Shipments to non-government entities could only be checked if Israeli government officials granted permission.

DECLASSIFIED: "Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty -Free Treatment for Imports from Israel"

The Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel (ISCAP) ordered the US Trade Representative to declassify and release most of a secret 300 page trade document.  In 1984 US exporters were urged to submit "confidential business information" (CBI) about their prices, market share, internal costs and market strategy to the International Trade Commission. The USTR guaranteed confidentiality and compiled the sensitive data into a classified report for use in negotiating the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement.
The Israeli government covertly obtained the classified USTR report and passed it to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to use in lobbying, the development of counter talking-points and a public relations campaign. Declassified FBI investigation files in the petition reveal AIPAC's legislative director made illicit duplications before returning the report by order of the USTR. The FBI interviewed Israeli Minister of Economics Dan Halpern.  Halpern claimed

Documents Reveal Israel Stole Uranium from U.S. Stockpiles In 1950s and 1960s

Recently declassified documents analyzed by the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy reveal a surprising fact. The Israeli government used American Jews and its own intelligence agents to infiltrate American uranium stockpiles in the 1950s and 1960s and steal 269 kilograms of weapons-grade material. That led to the creation of the Zionist state’s first nuclear bomb.
According to hundreds of documents from the FBI, CIA and other agencies recently declassified under the Freedom of Information Act, the United States contracted oversight of its nuclear materials stockpile to Zalman Shapiro, president of Numec Inc., an Apollo, Pa.-based company that U.S. intelligence suspected had ties to the newly formed Zionist government in Palestine. Over the next 11 years, 269 kilograms of enriched uranium were stolen from the plant in an operation guided by four known Mossad Israeli intelligence agents: Rafael Eitan, Avraham Ben-Dor, Ephraim Biegun and Avraham Hermoni.

AIPAC, The US Pro-Israel Lobby, their goals, methods and policies.

For more than half a century, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee has worked to help make Israel more secure by ensuring that American support remains strong. From a small pro-Israel public affairs boutique in the 1950s, AIPAC has grown into a 5000,000-member national grassroots movement described by The New York Times as "the most important organization affecting America's relationship with Israel." 
For over three decades it has been an effective lobby within Congress to ensure that Israel remains strong militarily and economically, and endures as a national homeland for Jews. While acknowledging its effectiveness, AIPAC critics maintain that AIPAC is an ex-officio arm of the Israeli government which shamelessly manipulates the political process whenever it decides that there is a perceived threat to Israel’s interests.
