Israeli Nuclear Espionage in U.S.

ANALYSIS: New espionage affair may be old story, but will greatly damage Israel
Yossi Melman, Haaretz Correspondent

Some key points:

Israel's argument, that the handling of Jonathan Pollard was an
exceptional and one-time event, has once again been proven incorrect....

The Pollard affair revealed that the Defense Ministry operated a secret unit under the name of the "Science Liaison Bureau" (also known by its Hebrew acronym "Lakam"), which for years fulfilled intelligence and
equipment-gathering missions for the nuclear reactor in Dimona and also served as a sort of "theft contractor" for the Israeli security industry.
