     CONSIDERABLE suspicion exists that the
Anti-Defamation League not only serves as an "unofficial"
propaganda arm of the Israeli government - a role its
National Director Abe Foxman unabashedly claims - but
that it also provides information on Palestinians and
Arab-Americans to the Israeli government and its
intelligence service, Mossad.

     The suspicions increased when a Chicago resident,
Mohammed Jarad, whose named appeared in Roy Bullock's
files, was arrested and accused of being an agent for
Hamas, upon his arrival in Israel to visit relatives in
the occupied territories.

     Also, as revealed in an interview with the FBI,
former ADL Los Angeles operative, David Gurvitz,
acknowledged that having "learned from a law enforcement
contact that a known member of the Democratic Front for
the Liberation of Palestine," was about to travel from
San Francisco to Haifa, he "called the Los Angeles
Israeli Consulate and advised the Deputy Consul General."
Later, a Hebrew-speaking individual from the Consulate
called back to confirm the information. 

     Both Bullock and Gurvitz, however, denied that there
is any direct link between the ADL and Mossad. However,
a letter written by then National Director of the ADL,
Benjamin Epstein on July 7, 1961, would indicate
otherwise. Epstein was writing to Saul Joftes who was, at
the time, the Executive Secretary of the International
Council of B'nai B'rith, the ADL's parent organization,
requesting additional funds.

     "Our information," wrote Epstein, "in addition to
being essential for our own operations, has been of great
value and service to both the United States State
Department and the Israeli government. All data have been
made available to both countries with full knowledge that
we are the source."

     Joftes, a 22-year veteran with B'nai B'rith did not
believe that this was the proper business of the ADL and
balked; at which point B'nai B'rith decided to fire him. 
Joftes turned around and sued Rabbi Kaufman, the
responsible B'nai B'rith executive, and entered Epstein's
letter as an exhibit in his behalf.

     In an affidavit filed in that action, Joftes stated:
"B'nai B'rithI has become an international organization
engaged, by Rabbi Kaufman's admission, in other things
besides charitable religious and educational activities.
It is no longer non-profit. It engages in international
politics and more often than not does the bidding of the
Government of Israel. Its leaders make frequent trips to
Israel for indoctrination and instructions. I had tried
to prevent this change. That is why Rabbi Kaufman tried
to fire me.

     "He was making B'nai B'rith a servant of the Israeli

     That was 1961. On May 6, 1993, the ADL's
representative in Jerusalem sent a memo to National
Director Abe Foxman informing him that he had attended "a
small, farewell luncheon that Shimon Peres gave for Bill
Harrop (the outgoing U.S. ambassador). According to Wall,
"There were no other American Jewish representatives
