Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in the May 22 issue of the Forward in an article regarding the trial of former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman. As Rosen’s lawyer, Mr. Lowell accused AIPAC and the American Jewish community of mistreating and abandoning his client. "They [the government] played for AIPAC’s lawyer about a minute or less of one conversation of many, many conversations and took it out of context, and they scared AIPAC, and AIPAC took its actions," he said but added that he "would have expected better out of a Jewish organization." Mr. Lowell called on the Jewish community to encourage the government to reconsider the case and to support Rosen and Weissman. "Offer them jobs, offer them support, because they deserve no less," he said.
