Spy Trade: How Israel's Lobby Undermines America's Economy by Grant F. Smith
In 1984 the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) obtained a secret US government industry report via the Israeli Embassy even as spy Jonathan Pollard looted vast quantities of national defense information. Since then AIPAC trade mandates and election manipulations have created a $71 billion US-Israeli trade deficit, equivalent to 100,000 American jobs in each of the past five years. The US is still locked out of lucrative high-growth foreign markets.
This is the story of unprosecuted economic espionage conducted by Israel's lobby naming violators based on newly declassified FBI files - dispersing decades of AIPAC public relations fog and excuses from the Department of Justice.
"Meticulously detailed in this riveting addition to his earlier exposes, Grant Smith reveals yet another facet of the extent to which the pro-Israel Lobby is beyond dangerous, and has become a serious threat to a broad range of American ideals, objectives, and interests abroad, as well as here at home. This book contains many highly disturbing, documented revelations. Read it." Ambassador Edward L. Peck, former Chief of Mission in Iraq and Former Deputy Director, Cabinet Task Force on Terrorism, Reagan White House.
