An Israeli analyst and a Lebanese researcher in the US

A Lebanese researcher came to the US to join a university research center having finished his doctorate at a European university.  He was contacted recently by someone who identified himself as "a Middle East analyst" at the Israeli consulate in the city where the university is located.  He asked to meet with him to discuss matters of interest.  The Lebanese researcher didn't even bother to reply.  He showed me a copy of the official email but does not want me to share or to identify him by name.
