Aditjondro wrote, in October 2002, that Indonesia's military and business elites have very close ties to Israel and Mossad.

According to Aditjondro:

Indonesia, under Suharto, allowed Mossad to operate in Jakarta. The Indonesian military have cooperated with Mossad.

This was confirmed by former security chief General Soemitro in his biography.

The Indonesian army special force Kopassus has been equipped with Israeli Uzi guns.

These Uzi machine guns were reportedly used in the massacre of hundreds of Muslim activists in Tanjung Priok, Jakarta, on September 12, 1984, as well as in the assassination of the West Papuan artist and freedom fighter, Arnold Ap, on April 26, 1984 (Ramos-Horta, 1987: 148; Djopari, 1993: 129; Ramage, 1995: 37).

Kopassus admires the Israeli army. A Kopassus publication, on view to the media in 2000, includes a chapter praising the typical Israeli Army commander.

The Indonesian air force has used US Skyhawk fighters, bought from Israel. (Hoy and Ostrovsly, 1990: 123; Leifer, 1985: 156; Peacock, 1987; Warplane , No. 6, Vol. 1, pp. 101-105).

The Indonesian military has used Israeli-made Mazlat Scout pilotless drones. (Far Eastern Economic Review , May 30, 1996).

A number of hi-tech Israeli companies have had business deals with a number of well-known Indonesian companies. The Salim and Tamara Groups and the state-owned telecommunications company PT Telkom are among those which have business ties with Israel, indirectly. Through these companies, Indonesian plywood, fine quality textiles and electronics have gone to Israel (Indonesia Business Weekly , March 11, 1994: 20).
