US not to probe Israel data theft


The Office of the US Trade Representative, USTR, has refused an investigation into Israel's theft and use of classified US industrial data.

 In May, the Institute for Research Middle Eastern Policy, IRmep, submitted a 62-page petition to the USTR, seeking $4.6 billion in damages from Israel over theft of classified trade data, Business Wire reported.

The petition claimed that Israeli exporters' access to data has materially harmed the US industry.

The USTR argued that the IRmep is not in a position to represent victimized US industry organizations.

It also denied IRmep's argument that the industry data theft constituted an "act, policy or practice of … Israel that might be actionable."

However, the USTR did not question the veracity of the IRmep's evidence based on a series of FBI files.

The FBI files revealed that in 2009, an Israeli cabinet minister admitted to obtaining the classified information and even passing it on to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, for lobbying and public relations in the US.

American industry groups had provided the data in confidence to the International Trade Commission in 1984.

  1. Of course not since Israel spies on, bribes and/or has dirt on most our politicians ( child sex - gays - drugs ). So our politicians through one means or another are mostly Israeli cheerleaders who allow our money to be sent to Israel at a time when we are flat broke while at the same time watching Israel kill the women and children of Palestine on which they are silent.

    Google "Dr alan sabrosky 911" to see just how far the rabbit hole goes my fellow Americans. Do it then tell your friends and families.

  2. Israel is a decoy for the CFR and the central bank and the soul of free masonry, the English crown. True, Israeli soldiers and Mossad attacked the U.S. on 9-11, but as employees of a more powerful entity.

    Good try and while I agree that members of the USA are complicit I do not believe the USA controls Israel.

    Israel's own leaders have publicly stated "Don't worry about the USA we control them" this combined with the fact that the Iraq and Afghan wars are more helpful to Israel than the USA lead me to conclude that Israel is the puppet master of this game.

    Israel is stealing Iraqi oil while gas in the USA is almost 4 bucks so I don't think your idea will flush so to speak. I feel bad for the decent Israeli's because they will be destroyed along with the Zionists.

    A mushroom cloud is on their horizon and it won't come from Tehran more likely from the USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!
