A brief history of un-prosecuted Israeli smuggling and espionage cases

What every American needs to know about Israel/Palestine
by Alison Weir, founder of If Americans Knew
Alison Weir and Grant Smith were the lead organizers of The National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel “Special Relationship” on March 7, 2014 at the National Press Club in Washington DC.
By strange coincidence one of the topics covered by Grant Smith became international news exactly as I was preparing his talk for broadcast on TUC Radio. On April 17th, 2014, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists released an article with the intriguing title: Did Israel steal bomb-grade uranium from the United States? <http://thebulletin.org/did-israel-steal-bomb-grade-uranium-united-states7056>
The authors, Victor Gilinsky and Roger J. Mattson, had suspected that Israel, in the 1960s, stole the uranium from the Apollo, Pennsylvania, plant of NUMEC, the Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation. They now credit the release of classified documents in March 2014, that contain much of the proof they were looking for, to the work of researcher Grant Smith.
Grant Smith is Executive Director of the Washington DC based Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy. <http://www.irmep.org/>For the past ten years he has been investigating the role of Israel and its domestic lobby, AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, in influencing US Middle East policy.
Alison Weir is president of the Council for the National Interest, created by ambassadors and former Congressmen in 1989 and executive director of If Americans Knew. <http://www.ifamericansknew.org/> That’s a nonprofit organization she founded when she came to the conclusion that if Americans knew the history and present reality of Palestine under Israeli occupation US foreign policy in the middle east would no longer be so one-sidedly supportive of Israel. She writes and speaks widely on Israel-Palestine, and has given talks at Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, and Georgetown.
