Israeli intelligence

According to her MM~Law bio:

Prior to joining MM~LAW she served for 21 years as a senior officer in Israeli Intelligence, including as chief liaison to US Department of Justice/Counterterrorism Task Force in joint Israeli-American anti-terrorism efforts, Head of Joint Task Force on Money Laundering through United States front organizations for Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Her desk responsibilities included liaison with MI5, MI6 and other European intelligence agencies in issues regarding Islamic organizations and terror financing in the UK, Germany, France Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey.[1]

According to Haaretz, Aloni "held a position in the intelligence community that involved the closure of some Arab Israeli organizations and foundations that allegedly laundered money for terror organizations."[2]


Aloni is Director of research at MM~Law which describes her as "a recognized expert on radical Islamic organizations and their extensive international infrastructure throughout the Middle East and the Western democracies."[1]

Aloni was involved in a January 2007 court case against the Arab Bank, Haaretz reported:

"We looked for someone to sue who has a connection to terror funding," explains Nehama Aloni, Mann-Mairone's chief analyst. "We discovered that the Arab Bank is leading the cash flow, by means of an organization called the Saudi Committee for Support of the Intifada. We also found that many of the Web sites raising funds for Palestinian terror organizations mentioned the bank's name many times, and that account numbers at the bank were given for contributions."[2]

Aloni told Haaretz "The suit can serve as an important precedent. It will have implications for other banks and financial institutions, which will be far more careful before they provide services to suspicious bodies that serve as a front for terror organizations. Our suit is a kind of civil battle against terrorism."[2]
