Report: Washington Showdown with AIPAC

Prohibited Activities are again catching up with the lobby

Excerpt:  ...

Today the lobby launders with impunity purloined US national defense information, rather than overseas charitable funds, to undermine peace.

Newly Declassified AIPAC-IRS Documents Released 
Today the Israel Lobby Archive releases two declassified documents detailing sensitive Senate-IRS correspondence about Israel lobby tax exemptions and violations.  The National Archives has locked down further new releases until 2013.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee recommends an Israel (and other foreign) lobby investigation to the IRS and asks for tax exemption review.  The Senate submits investigatory evidence that AIPAC and its parent organization the AZC are laundering overseas tax exempt funds into US lobbying and public relations.  The AZC was at the time under a Justice Department order to register as a foreign agent. 08191963 (PDF)

IRS  responds with tax information and analysis, noting that AIPAC had never applied for exempt status while refusing to revoke its parent's (the AZC's) status.  The AZC later shuts down under the weight of a Justice Department order. 01161964 (PDF)
