as a hypocritical
double-standard
used by the United
States against Jonathan
Pollard, the American con-
victed for spying in the
United States for Israel?
That question is raised in
an article in Penthouse
magazine about U.S. docu-
ments captured by Iranian
students in the November
1979 takeover of the U.S. em-
bassy in Tehran.
The seized documents in-
cluded an entire archive of
State Department, CIA and
Defense Intelligence Agency
papers. According to the
author of the Penthouse arti-
cle, Edward Jay Epstein,
many of the documents had
not been shredded by em-
bassy personnel before the
embassy takeover. And those
that had been fed through the
shredder were not destroyed
"because the embassy, for
budget reasons, had used in-
ferior shredders." These bits
and pieces of paper were
"stitched back together by
Iranian women skilled at
weaving Persian carpets."
The documents concerned
much more than Iran, reports
Epstein, since the Tehran em-
bassy was a regional base for
the CIA. Its records involved
secret operations in Israel,
the Soviet Union, Turkey,
Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Ku-
wait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Without a doubt," asserts
Epstein, "these captured
records represent the most ex-
tensive loss of secret data that
any superpower has suffered
since the end of the Second
World War."
These documents have now
been published by the Iran-
ians in a 60-volume set,
Documents From the U.S. Es-
pionage Den, available in the
U.S. and England for $346.
Among the documents is a
47-page report that details
CIA espionage against Israel.
The report is "extremely
damaging to Israeli intelli-
gence," states Epstein. It
details the sources and meth-
ods of Israel's most secret in-
telligence services — includ-
ing the Mossad, Israel's
equivalent of the CIA; the
Shin Beth, Israel's FBI; and
its other intelligence schools
and services.
According to Epstein, the
report, entitled "Israel:
Foreign Intelligence and
Security Services:"
• "Closely defines Israel's
foreign targets."

Jonathan Pollard

• Reveals Israeli intelli-
gence forces' tactics, "such as
`false-flag' recruitments
(where Israeli agents pose as
NATO officers), and 'surrep-
titious entry operations'
(where Israeli agents break
into embassies)."
• Includes an organization
table with the names, photos
and salaries of top personnel.
• Describes Israel's "most
sensitive liaisons" with
foreign intelligence services
in nations with which it does
not have diplomatic relations,
such as as China and Kenya.
The report was compiled be-
tween 1976 and 1979 and
"clearly" indicates to Epstein
that the CIA was engaged in
espionage against Israel dur-
ing this period. But when
Jonathan Pollard was ar-
rested in 1985 for stealing
U.S. Navy documents about
Arab terrorists and selling
them to Israel, the United
States denounced Israel for
organizing an espionage
operation in America.
"The judgement that allies
don't spy on allies, turns out,"
writes Epstein, "to be some-
what hypocritical. Pollard's
activities were, like all es-
pionage activities, clearly
illegal; but they were not
unique to Israel. The situa-
tion is anything but one-sided
when it is revealed that
American intelligence rou-
tinely engaged in espionage
against Israeli intelligence."

The secret U.S. documents
also reveals that the CIA
knew of certain Israeli in-
telligence operations in the
United States. The report, ac-
cording to Epstein, "acknow-
ledges matter-of-factly that
Mossad routinely 'collects' in-
telligence in the United
States through its eighth
department."
Pollard's damage to U.S. in-
telligence is "questionable,"
says Epstein. But "the
damage the CIA did to Israel
