Israel dismisses report it didn't share WTC attack data

By Melissa Radler

NEW YORK (December 20) - Israeli officials here are blasting a four-part Fox News series that alleges that Israeli intelligence officials failed to share what they knew about September 11 with their American counterparts prior to the attacks, and that Israelis in the US have been caught spying on Arab citizens.

In the four-part series, the first of which was aired on December 11, correspondent Carl Cameron alleged that "investigators suspect that the Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it."

Cameron also stated that a group of Israelis based in North Carolina is suspected of renting an apartment in California "to spy on a group of Arabs who the United States is also investigating for links to terrorism.

"Numerous classified documents obtained by Fox News indicate that even prior to September 11, as many as 140 other Israelis had been detained or arrested in a secretive and sprawling investigation into suspected espionage by Israelis in the United States," Cameron continued.

PollardHours after the segment aired, spokesmen at Israeli consulates were attacking the report, which points out that Israel for years denied any linkage to convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, (right) as false.

"The report on Fox News contains no quoted source, it has in no way demonstrated anything more than anonymous innuendo, and should be regarded accordingly. Israel does not spy on the United States of America," said Mark Regev, a spokesman at the embassy in Washington, who was also quoted by the series denying the allegations.

As for allegation that Israel did not share intelligence regarding the September 11 attack with the Americans, Regev called the charge "totally unfounded and incorrect."
