Abstract

The young State of Israel had been greatly assisted by non-Israeli Jews. However, for obvious reasons this aspect of its foreign policy history has been shrouded with secrecy and most of these individuals have remained unrecognized. The article sheds light on the activities of one of them, Gideon Hadary, who was born in Chicago, raised in Rehovot, educated in the United States, became an OSS and later a State Department intelligence officer, and who at the same time secretly rendered invaluable diplomatic help to the Jewish Agency and the State of Israel. More research is badly needed to uncover the full range of this aspect of the country's "statecraft in the dark".
