- The Israeli lobby has many "thinktanks" that
provide future advisors to the various administrations, both Republican
and Democrat. During the Clinton Administration, the Israeli lobby provided
officials from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy like Martin
Indyk. During the Bush Jr Administration, many of the officials the Israeli
lobby provided are from their Republican "thinktanks," like the
American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Jewish Institute for National
Security Affairs (JINSA).
- 1). Richard Perle----One of Bush's foreign policy advisors,
he is the chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. A very likely
Israeli government agent, Perle was expelled from Senator Henry Jackson's
office in the 1970's after the National Security Agency (NSA) caught him
passing Highly-Classified (National Security) documents to the Israeli
Embassy. He later worked for the Israeli weapons firm, Soltam. Perle came
from one the above mentioned pro-Israel thinktanks, the AEI. Perle is one
of the leading pro-Israeli fanatics leading this Iraq war mongering within
the administration and now in the media.
- 2). Paul Wolfowitz----Deputy Defense Secretary, and member
of Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close
associate of Perle, and reportedly has close ties to the Israeli military.
His sister lives in Israel. Wolfowitz came from the above mentioned Jewish
thinktank, JINSA. Wolfowitz is the number two leader within the administration
behind this Iraq war mongering.
- 3). Douglas Feith----Under Secretary of Defense and Policy
Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close associate of Perle and served as
his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others, Feith is a pro-Israel extremist,
who has advocated anti-Arab policies in the past. He is closely associated
with the extremist group, the Zionist Organization of America, which even
attacks Jews that don't agree with its extremist views. Feith frequently
speaks at ZOA conferences. Feith runs a small law firm, Feith and Zell,
which only has one International office, in Israel. The majority of their
legal work is representing Israeli interests. His firm's own website stated,
prior to his appointment, that Feith "represents Israeli Armaments
Manufacturer." Feith basically represents the Israeli War Machine.
Feith also came from the Jewish thinktank JINSA. Feith, like Perle and
Wolfowitz, are campaigning hard for this Israeli proxy war against Iraq.
- 4). Edward Luttwak----Member of the National Security
Study Group of the Department of Defence at the Pentagon. Luttwak is reportedly
an Israeli citizen and has taught in Israel. He frequently writes for Israeli
and pro-Israeli newspapers and journals. Luttwak is an Israeli extremist
whose main theme in many of his articles is the necessity of the U.S. waging
war against Iraq.
- 5). Henry Kissinger-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle. For
detailed information about Kissinger's evil past, read Seymour Hersch's
book (Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House). Kissinger likely
had a part in the Watergate crimes, Southeast Asia mass murders (Vietnam,
Cambodia, Laos), Installing Chilean mass murdering dictator Pinochet, Operation
Condor's mass killings in South America, and more recently served as Serbia's
Ex-Dictator Slobodan Milosevic's Advisor. He consistently advocates going
to war against Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of the U.S. Unfortunately,
President Bush nominated Kissinger as chairman of the September 11 investigating
commission. It's like picking a bank robber to investigate a fraud scandal.
- 6). Dov Zakheim----Under Secretary of Defense, Comptroller,
and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the Department of Defense. He is
an ordained rabbi and reportedly holds Israeli citizenship. Zakheim attended
attended Jew's College in London and became an ordained Orthodox Jewish
Rabbi in 1973. He was adjunct professor at New York's Jewish Yeshiva University.
Zakheim is close to the Israeli lobby.
- 7). Kenneth Adelman-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Adelman also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle, and
is another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supports going to war against
Iraq. Adelman frequently is a guest on Fox News, and often expresses extremist
and often ridiculus anti-Arab and anti-Muslim views. Through his hatred
or stupidity, he actually called Arabs "anti-Semitic" on Fox
News (11/28/2001), when he could have looked it up in the dictionary to
find out that Arabs by definition are Semites.
- 8). I. Lewis Libby -----Vice President Dick Cheney's
Chief of Staff. The chief pro-Israel Jewish advisor to Cheney, it helps
explains why Cheney is so gun-ho to invade Iraq. Libby is longtime associate
of Wolfowitz. Libby was also a lawyer for convicted felon and Israeli spy
Mark Rich, whom Clinton pardoned, in his last days as president.
- 9). Robert Satloff----U.S. National Security Council
Advisor, Satloff was the executive director of the Israeli lobby's "think
tank," Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Many of the Israeli
lobby's "experts" come from this front group, like Martin Indyk.
- 10). Elliott Abrams-----National Security Council Advisor.
He previously worked at Washington-based "Think Tank" Ethics
and Public Policy Center. During the Reagan Adminstration, Abrams was the
Assistant Secretary of State, handling, for the most part, Latin American
affairs. He played an important role in the Iran-Contra Scandal, which
involved illegally selling U.S. weapons to Iran to fight Iraq, and illegally
funding the contra rebels fighting to overthrow Nicaragua's Sandinista
government. He also actively deceived three congressional committees about
his involvement and thereby faced felony charges based on his testimony.
Abrams pled guilty in 1991 to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year's
probation and 100 hours of community service. A year later, former President
Bush (Senior) granted Abrams a full pardon. He was one of the more hawkish
pro-Israel Jews in the Reagan Administration's State Department.
- 11). Marc Grossman-----Under Secretary of State for Political
Affairs. He was Director General of the Foreign Service and Director of
Human Resources at the Department of State. Grossman is one of many of
the pro-Israel Jewish officials from the Clinton Administration that Bush
has promoted to higher posts.
- 12). Richard Haass-----Director of Policy Planning at
the State Department and Ambassador at large. He is also Director of National
Security Programs and Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations
(CFR). He was one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in the first Bush
(Sr) Administration who sat on the National Security Council, and who consistently
advocates going to war against Iraq. Haass is also a member of the Defense
Department's National Security Study Group, at the Pentagon.
- 13). Robert Zoellick-----U.S. Trade Representative, a
cabinet-level position. He is also one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews
in the Bush (Jr) Administration who advocated invading Iraq and occupying
a portion of the country in order to set up setting up a Vichy-style puppet
government. He consistently advocates going to war against Iraq.
- 14). Ari Fleischer----Official White House Spokesman
for the Bush (Jr) Administration. Prominent in the Jewish community, some
reports state that he holds Israeli citizenship. Fleischer is closely connected
to the extremist Jewish group called the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidics, who
follow the Qabala, and hold very extremist and insulting views of non-Jews.
Fleischer was the co-president of Chabad's Capitol Jewish Forum. He received
the Young Leadership Award from the American Friends of Lubavitch in October,
- 15). James Schlesinger-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Schlesinger also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle
and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supports going to war
against Iraq. Schlesinger is also a commissioner of the Defense Department's
National Security Study Group, at the Pentagon.
- 16). David Frum-----White House speechwriter behind the
"Axis of Evil" label. He lumps together all the lies and accusations
against Iraq for Bush to justify the war.
- 17). Joshua Bolten----White House Deputy Chief of Staff,
Bolten was previously a banker, former legislative aide, and prominent
in the Jewish community.
- 18). John Bolton----Under-Secretary of State for Arms
Control and International Security. Bolton is also a Senior Advisor to
President Bush. Prior to this position, Bolton was Senior Vice President
of the above mentioned pro-Israel thinktank, AEI. He recently (October
2002) accused Syria of having a nuclear program, so that they can attack
Syria after Iraq. He must have forgotten that Israel has 400 nuclear warheads,
some of which are thermonuclear weapons (according to a recent U.S. Air
- 19). David Wurmser----Special Assistant to John Bolton
(above), the under-secretary for arms control and international security.
Wurmser also worked at the AEI with Perle and Bolton. His wife, Meyrav

intelligence, co-founded the Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri),a
Washington-based Israeli outfit which distributes articles translated from
Arabic newspapers portraying Arabs in a bad light.
- 20). Eliot Cohen-----Member of the Pentagon's Defense
Policy Board under Perle and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor. Like

Islam should be the enemy, not terrorism.
