- THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH: ISRAEL'S CENTRAL ROLE IN THE JFK
- Where in the world could anyone come up with the idea
that Israel's Mossad had a hand in the assassination of John F. Kennedy?
Well, there's more to the story than meets the eye. All of the information
which, taken together, proves this contention has already been committed
to print. This book, Final Judgment, brings all of these facts together
for the first time in a frightening scenario that makes sense.
- Considering all of the theories about the assassination
of John F. Kennedy that have been circulating for years, how could anyone
ever suggest that Israel's Mossad was involved?
- This was the reaction of more than a few people when
apprised of the thesis presented in the pages of this book. Yet, I believe,
that when you read this volume you will reach the same conclusion: that
Israel and its spy agency, the Mossad, did indeed play a critical role
in the JFK assassination conspiracy and its cover-up. The evidence, you
shall see, is there.
- It was several years ago that I first stumbled upon a
hint that this was indeed the case. I came across a strange reference in
the pages of a controversial work about the JFK assassination which alleged
that rogue CIA operatives had been behind the president's murder, A. J.
Weberman and Michael Canfield's Coup d'Etat in America, first published
in 1975. The reference, simple as it was, appearing on page 41, read as
- "After the assassination, an informer for the Secret
Service and the FBI who had infiltrated a Cuban exile group and was in
the process of selling them machine guns, reported that on November 21,
1963 he was told, 'We now have plenty of money-our new backers are the
Jews-as soon as they take care of JFK.' This man had furnished reliable
information in the past."
- I barely noticed the reference, but it did intrigue me.
Who did this source mean when he referred to "the Jews"? This
was the question I needed to answer. My immediate conclusion was this:
the source meant Jewish gangsters-such as Meyer Lansky-who had a stake
in reviving their Cuban gambling interests that they lost when Fidel Castro
came to power. This was the logical answer.
- Frankly, I laid the reference aside. It was just one
lone remark out of perhaps millions of words written about the JFK assassination.
It was nearly a year that went by before I came across the quotation again-while
re-reading the same book. I pondered the quote for a moment, thinking,
"This is interesting."
- However, I once again cast those thoughts aside. I had
already reached my own conclusions about the JFK assassination long before:
The CIA was primarily responsible, working hand-in-hand with certain elements
in "the Mafia" and also in the anti-Castro Cuban movement.
- However, in the subsequent year that followed, I began
to stumble across some interesting information.
- In David Scheim's book, Contract on America, which contends
that "the Mafia" was solely responsible for the JFK assassination,
I saw a variation of the same quote referenced in the Weberman and Canfield
- However, Scheim's rendition of the quote had deleted
the reference to the alleged Jewish backers of the Cuban plotters. I began
to think that there might be something more to the story after all, whatever
the accuracy of the story allegedly told to the federal authorities.
- THE LANSKY CONNECTION
- It was around this time that I learned that a new biography
of organized crime figure Meyer Lansky had been released. It was entitled
- Meyer Lansky and the Gangster Life. The book-prepared
in cooperation with Lansky's family-was little more than a puff piece for
the deceased thug. Gossipy, full of inside information, and even entertaining
at times, the book still somehow seemed to be missing a lot.
- It was then that I returned to my library and pulled
a book off the shelf that I hadn't re-read in perhaps fifteen years. It
was Hank Messick's biography of Lansky. Re-reading this important book
I began to see that Meyer Lansky was not just another gangster. He was
"the chairman of the board" of organized crime.
- All of the Mafia figures that had been repeatedly implicated
in the JFK assassination were, in fact, Lansky's front-men-his subordinates,
his underlings. In short, if "the Mafia" had a hand in the killing
of JFK, then Lansky had to have been one of the key players.
- Yet, as I quickly began to see in reviewing many of the
works which allege that "The Mafia Killed JFK," Lansky's preeminent
role was being ignored or otherwise under-played.
- I was aware of Lansky's close ties to Israel. After all,
Lansky fled to Israel when the heat was on in the United States. But how
deeply did the Lansky-Israeli connection go?
- My research into that question began to turn up some
interesting facts relating to an Israeli connection to the assassination
2f John F. Kennedy.
- THE ISRAELI CONNECTION
- Why would Israel have an interest in participating in
the JFK assassination conspiracy? That was the burning question.
- It was just about the time that I had begun to take a
second look at the Lansky connection to the Kennedy assassination that
several new works about the covert relationship between the United States
and Israel were released providing never-before revealed information.
- These books, cited extensively in Final Judgment, made
it all too clear that John F. Kennedy-before his death-was in a pitched
battle with Israel. In fact, Kennedy was at war.
- This was something that long-time JFK assassination researchers
had no reason to know about. Much of the material had long been classified.
It was a secret-a deep, dark secret.
- Some of JFK's communications with then-Israeli Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion are still classified. Not even top-level intelligence
officials with special security clearance have been allowed access to these
potentially explosive documents.
- This discovery made me realize that there was a lot more
to the Kennedy relationship with Israel and a lot more about the JFK assassination
than we had ever been told.
- ISRAEL, LANSKY & THE CIA
- The long and close relationship between Israel and JFK's
foes at the CIA is something which is becoming more and more known to the
general public. JFK's own war with the CIA is common knowledge.
- At the time of the president's assassination, however,
the depth and breadth of the CIA's relationship with Israel's Mossad, however,
was not so commonly known.
- What's more, as I began to discover, Israel's allies
in the Lansky Syndicate had much deeper relations with the CIA than most
researchers have realized.
- And while the stories of CIA-Organized Crime assassination
plots against Castro have been told time and again, the evidence I began
to discover told an even bigger story.
- The pieces of the puzzle were all there. They simply
needed to be put together. As the research continued, I repeatedly found
myself stumbling upon new facts and information that continued to verify
what was initially in my mind just a theory, but which I now believe to
be the truth.
- THE PERMINDEX CONNECTION
- It is the little-discussed Permindex connection to the
JFK assassination which is the tie that binds-the final proof that Israel's
Mossad was at the center of the assassination conspiracy.
- In the Permindex connection we find all of the critical
elements which tie Israel's Mossad, the CIA and organized crime together
in close-knit intrigue linked directly to the murder of President Kennedy.
- Although researchers, over the years, have devoted much
time and energy to pursuing a wide variety of questions relating to the
JFK assassination controversy (focusing on controversies that will never
be resolved) they have steered clear of the Permindex connection.
- Those who have made any reference to Permindex have described
it as some sort of "neo-Nazi" entity-even a remnant of Hitler's
SS-but, as we shall see, nothing could be further from the truth.
- To understand the forces behind the Permindex connection,
which we examine in detail in this volume, is to understand the answer
to the biggest mystery of this century: the question of who killed John
- INSIDERS AGREE
- Just before I began the book I mentioned my theory to
a rather well-known former United States congressman. He surprised me when
he said, "I think you are on to something. I've believed for years
that the Mossad was involved in the Kennedy assassination, but I never
really took the time to look into it. I'm glad you're doing it, though.
It will be an important book. It's a book I would have liked to have written
- Then, just after I finished the book, I sent a copy of
the manuscript to another former U.S. congressman, thinking that he might
have some interest in the subject. His response was perhaps a bit astonishing.
- After the former congressman received the manuscript
he wrote me a surprising letter in which he said, "I will tell you
this. A retired Western European diplomat and intelligence officer with
whom I've been in correspondence (and who has had disastrous experiences
with Israel and the Mossad) has been urging me for the last four years
to write the book that you have written."
- He passed the manuscript on to the Frenchman who in turn
wrote me a fascinating letter providing further information confirming
- ONE COMPLETE PICTURE
- The fruits of my labor appear in this book. I owe so
much to all of those JFK assassination researchers who made this book possible.
Their pioneering efforts laid the foundation for the construction of a
framework which I firmly believe proves Mossad complicity in the assassination
of John F. Kennedy.
- All of those who sought the truth-and sometimes risked
their reputations (and even perhaps their lives) doing it-cleared the way
for a final judgment:
- Israel was the driving force behind the conspiracy that
resulted in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It is the Israeli connection
that pulls all of the pieces of the puzzle together into one complete picture.
The role of 'j Israel in the JFK assassination is, indeed, the until-now
- A WHO'S WHO OF THE JFK ASSASSINATION CONSPIRACY AND COVER-UP
- While the following selection of names in this special
"who's who" is by no means complete, it does provide the reader
of Final Judgment with a brief overview of the facts relating to the involvement
of the individuals in question with the circumstances surrounding not only
the JFK assassination itself, but also the efforts to not only uncover
the truth about the assassination-and also to bury it.
- Following each name and description are references to
the particular chapters in Final Judgment where details about that individual
appear in pertinent part. The inclusion of any name in particular is by
no means intended to suggest that the individual-unless specifically stated-had
foreknowledge that the murder of President Kennedy was being planned.
- As we note in these pages, there were many people who
were brought into the JFK assassination conspiracy and the subsequent cover-up
who had no idea of the actual role that they were playing.
- The following "who's who"-if read in this context-provides
the reader a quick glance at the key individuals who ultimately prove central
to a complete understanding of the entirety of the conspiracy that resulted
in the assassination of President Kennedy.
- AT PERMINDEX
- Clay Shaw - If New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison
had been permitted to carry out an unimpeded investigation and prosecution
of Shaw, a CIA contract operative and a former director of the International
Trade Mart in New Orleans implicated in involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald,
David Ferrie, Guy Banister and other figures central to the JFK assassination
conspiracy, Garrison would have divined Shaw's connections - through a
shadowy corporation known as Permindex - to not only the Israeli Mossad,
but also the international crime syndicate of Israeli loyalist Meyer Lansky.
- Louis M. Bloomfield - Based in Montreal, Bloomfield was
a long-time intelligence operative and a front man for the powerful Bronfman
family interests. The Bronfmans were not only key international backers
of Israel but also long-time figures in the Lansky crime syndicate. Bloomfield,
one of the foremost figures in the Israeli lobby in Canada and one of Israel's
leading international operatives, not only served as the chief shareholder
in the Permindex Corporation on whose board of directors Clay Shaw served,
but also had intimate ties to American intelligence.
- Tibor Rosenbaum - One of the "godfathers" of
the state of Israel and the first director for finance and supply for Israel's
intelligence agency, the Mossad, Rosenbaum was a prime financial angel
behind the Permindex corporation. His Swiss banking concern, the Banque
De Credit International, also served as the chief European money laundry
or the global crime syndicate of Miami-based crime chief Meyer Lansky.
- John King - A close business associate of Tibor Rosenbaum's
protégé and sometime front man, Bernard Cornfeld, King showed
up in New Orleans in the early stages of Jim Garrison's investigation-before
Clay Shaw's name had come up-and sought to persuade Garrison (through a
bribery attempt) to give up the inquiry. Fortunately he failed in his scheme.
- THE MOSSAD CONNECTION
- David Ben-Gurion - Prime Minister of Israel; resigned
his post in disgust with JFK's stance toward Israel. in April of 1963;
Said JFK's position threatened Israel's very survival.
- Yitzhak Shamir - A long-time Mossad officer (based largely
at the Mossad's chief European office in Paris), Shamir headed the Mossad's
assassination squad at the time of the JFK assassination. A former French
intelligence officer has charged that Shamir himself arranged the hiring
of JFK's actual assassins through a close ally in French intelligence.
- Menachem Begin - In 1963, Begin (later prime minister
of Israel) was a roving Israeli diplomat; prior to JFK's assassination
he was overheard conspiring with Meyer Lansky's California henchman, Mickey
Cohen, in a conversation that suggested hostile intentions by Israel against
the American president.
- Luis Kutner - Although known largely as a "mob lawyer,"
(who was long and closely associated with Jack Ruby, a sometime-client)
Kutner also doubled as an international intelligence operative and functioned
as an advisor to an ad hoc pro-Israel lobby group in the United States.
- A. L. Botnick - Head of the New Orleans office of the
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, an intelligence and propaganda
arm for Israel's Mossad; a close associate of New Orleans-based CIA contract
operative Guy Banister who helped create Lee Harvey Oswald's preassassination
profile as a "pro-Castro" agitator. Evidence suggests that Banister's
manipulation of Oswald may have been carried out under the guise of an
ADL "fact-finding" operation.
- Arnon Milchan - Israel's biggest arms dealer, Milchan
was "executive producer" (i.e. chief financial angel) of Oliver
Stone's Hollywood fantasy about the JFK assassination-a fact which may
explain Stone's aversion to exploring the Israeli connection to the affair.
- Maurice Tempeisman - The international diamond merchant
and Mossad operative who became the lover of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
and used his connections to double-perhaps triple-her substantial fortune,
thereby co-opting the Kennedy family forever.
- THE CIA CONNECTION
- Rudolph Hecht - An owner of the CIA-linked Standard Fruit
concern, Hecht was a prominent figure in the New Orleans Jewish community
and as chairman of the board of directors of the International Trade Mart
was Permindex board member Clay Shaw's primary sponsor.
- James Jesus Angleton - Angleton, the CIA's long-time
chief of counterintelligence, was the CIA's primary high-level conspirator
in the murder of President Kennedy and the subsequent cover-up. Angleton,
who had been co-opted by and was totally loyal to the Israeli Mossad, played
a major role in the effort to frame Lee Harvey Oswald. Final Judgment is
the first JFK assassination study to delve into Angleton's role in the
- David Atlee Phillips - A long-time high-level CIA official,
Phillips was the CIA station chief in Mexico City at the time a strange
effort was underway to implicate Lee Harvey Oswald as a Soviet KGB collaborator.
If anyone in the CIA knew the truth about Oswald, it was Phillips. He confessed
publicly that the story about Oswald being in Mexico City was not precisely
what the CIA had long claimed.
- E. Howard Hunt - Long-time CIA officer and liaison to
the anti-Castro Cuban exiles. Testimony by ex-CIA contract operative Marita
Lorenz placed Hunt in Dallas, Texas the day before the president's assassination.
The full truth about Hunt's actual involvement in the affair may never
be known, but there is no question that Hunt was deeply involved in the
intrigue surrounding the president's murder. Evidence does indeed indicate
that there was a conscious effort to frame Hunt for involvement in the
- Guy Banister -The former FBI agent-turned-CIA contract
operative whose New Orleans office was a central point for international
intrigue involving the CIA, the anti-Castro Cuban exiles and the anti-DeGaulle
forces in the French Secret Army Organization (OAS). Under Banister's direction,
Lee Harvey Oswald established a public profile for himself as a "pro-Castro"
agitator in the streets of New Orleans.
- David Ferrie - An enigmatic adventurer and CIA contract
operative, Ferrie was closely involved with Lee Harvey Oswald during Oswald's
stay in New Orleans in the summer of 1963, working alongside Oswald out
of Banister's headquarters. The investigation of Ferrie by New Orleans
District Attorney Jim Garrison ultimately led to Garrison's discovery of
Permindex board member Clay Shaw's ties to both Ferrie and Oswald.
- Marita Lorenz - A former CIA contract operative, she
testified under oath that one day prior to the assassination of President
Kennedy she arrived in Dallas in an armed caravan of CIA-backed Cuban exiles
who were met by not only Jack Ruby, who later killed Lee Harvey Oswald,
but also CIA official E. Howard Hunt.
- Guillermo & Ignacio Novo - Two brothers, veterans
of the CIA-backed Cuban exile wars against Fidel Castro. According to Marita
Lorenz, the Novo brothers were part of the armed caravan that arrived in
Dallas one day before the assassination of President Kennedy. Many years
after Dallas, the Novos were later convicted of participating in the murder
of a Chilean dissident in collaboration with international adventurer Michael
Townley who himself had ties to high-level figures implicated in the JFK
- John Tower - In 1963 Tower was a newly-elected Republican
U.S. Senator from Texas with close ties to the CIA. Shortly after the assassination
he told associates of his own inside knowledge of the bizarre story of
what really happened in Dealey Plaza. The story told by Tower suggests
strongly that there were many unseen forces at work, manipulating many
of the key players in the JFK assassination conspiracy. It was not until
the release of Final Judgment that Tower's name was ever connected to the
mystery surrounding the JFK assassination.
- Victor Marchetti - A high-ranking CIA official who left
the agency in disgust, Marchetti later made a career writing about the
CIA. In a 1978 article he charged that the CIA was about to frame its long-time
operative, E. Howard Hunt, with involvement in the JFK assassination. A
libel suit resulting as a consequence of Marchetti's article resulted in
a climactic finding by a jury that the CIA had been involved in the assassination
of the president.
- Robin Moore - A journalist with long-standing close ties
to the CIA, Moore co-authored former CIA man Hugh McDonald's book, LBJ
and the JFK Conspiracy which promoted James Jesus Angleton's false claim
that the KGB was behind the president's murder-another of the disinformation
stories that emerged following the assassination.
- THE LANSKY SYNDICATE
- Meyer Lansky - Chief executive officer and de facto "treasurer"
of the international crime syndicate; active in gun-running on behalf of
the Israeli underground; collaborated closely with American intelligence
on a number of fronts; later settled in Israel. Researchers who have claimed
that "the Mafia Killed JFK" have pointedly refused to acknowledge
Lansky's preeminent positioning in the underworld.
- Carlos Marcello - The head of the Mafia in New Orleans,
Marcello owed his status to Meyer Lansky who was his chief sponsor in the
crime syndicate. Marcello could not have orchestrated the JFK assassination-as
some suggest-without Lansky's explicit approval.
- Seymour Weiss - Meyer Lansky's chief bagman and liaison
with the political establishment in Louisiana, he later served as a director
of the CIA-linked Standard Fruit company and may actually have been a high-ranking
CIA contract operative in New Orleans at the time of the JFK assassination.
- Sam Giancana - The Mafia boss of Chicago, Giancana was
a player in the CIA-Mafia plots against Castro; later murdered, probably
at the behest of Santo Trafficante, Jr. His family says that Giancana admitted
having been involved in the planning of the JFK assassination.
- Santo Trafficante, Jr. - Although best known as the head
of the Mafia in Tampa, Trafficante actually functioned as Meyer Lansky's
chief lieutenant in the crime syndicate and as Lansky's liaison with the
CIA in the Castro assassination plots.
- Johnny Rosselli - A roving "ambassador" for
the Mafia, Rosselli was the primary conduit between the CIA and the mob
in the plots against Fidel Castro; may have arranged the murder of Sam
Giancana for Trafficante and was later murdered himself.
- Mickey Cohen - Meyer Lansky's West Coast henchman; Jack
Ruby's role model and a gun-runner for the Israeli underground, Cohen collaborated
closely with Israeli diplomat Menachem Begin prior to the JFK assassination;.
Cohen arranged for John F. Kennedy to meet actress Marilyn Monroe who was
assigned the task of finding out JFK's private views and intentions toward
- Jack Ruby - A long-time functionary for the Lansky syndicate,
Ruby was the Lansky connection man in Dallas and also engaged in CIA-linked
gunrunning to the anti-Castro Cuban exiles. Evidence suggests there is
more to Ruby's sudden "death" than meets the eye.
- Jim Braden - A veteran personal courier for Meyer Lansky,
Braden was almost assuredly in contact in Dallas with Jack Ruby prior to
the JFK assassination. He was briefly detained in Dealey Plaza minutes
after the president's murder, but those JFK assassination researchers who
have mentioned Braden prefer to cast him as a "Mafia" figure
rather than as Lansky's man on the scene in Dallas.
- Al Gruber - A henchman of Meyer Lansky's West Coast operative,
Mickey Cohen, Gruber and Ruby spoke by telephone just shortly before Ruby
killed Lee Harvey Oswald. It is believed that Gruber gave Ruby the contract
on Oswald on behalf of his superiors.
- THE FRENCH CONNECTION
- Charles DeGaulle - Repeatedly targeted for assassination
by Israeli-allied forces in French intelligence and in the Secret Army
Organization (OAS) who were angry that DeGaulle had granted independence
to Arab Algeria. The Mossad-sponsored Permindex operation that also had
a hand in the murder of JFK, laundered money used in the assassination
attempts on DeGaulle.
- Georges deLannurien - High ranking official in the SDECE,
the French intelligence agency; pinpointed by a former French intelligence
officer as the individual who (at the best of Mossad assassinations chief
Yitzhak Shamir) contracted the hit team who killed JFK in Dallas.
- Michael Mertz - A former French SDECE officer and the
Paris connection for the Lansky-Trafficante heroin syndicate; alleged to
have been one of the actual gunmen in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Said
by some to be the legendary CIA contract killer, QJ/WIN.
- Jean Soutre - A liaison for the French OAS with the CIA's
E. Howard Hunt, Soutre maintained contact with Guy Banister's CIA- and
mob-linked gun-running headquarters in New Orleans. Soutre may have been
in Dallas at the time of the JFK assassination. There is evidence linking
Soutre to James Jesus Angleton's intrigue inside the CIA that affected
French intelligence in a dramatic way.
- Thomas Eli Davis III - A world-traveling mercenary with
apparent links to both Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald, Davis was taken
into custody by the Algerian government for his subversive activities alongside
Israeli agents in supplying weapons to the French OAS just prior to the
JFK assassination. It is said that CIA operative QJJWIN (possibly Michael
Mertz, one of the reputed assassins of President Kennedy) helped secure
Davis's release from prison.
- Geoffrey Bocca - A former propagandist for the OAS, Bocca
later co-authored former CIA contract agent Hugh McDonald's book, Appointment
in Dallas, which pointed the blame for the JFK assassination away from
those who were actually responsible-the first of two suspect books put
out by McDonald.
- Christian David - A French Corsican criminal associated
with reputed JFK assassin Michael Mertz, David has claimed knowledge of
a French hit team involved in the JFK assassination. David himself was
the chief suspect in the murder of a Moroccan dissident, Mehdi Ben-Barka,
whose killing was orchestrated by the Israeli Mossad through anti-DeGaulle
forces in French intelligence.
- TRUTH SEEKERS
- Mark Lane - Retained by Lee Harvey Oswald's mother to
represent her son's interests before the Warren Commission, Lane's book
Rush to Judgment was the first major critique of the Warren Commission
Report. In a libel suit filed against The Spotlight newspaper by former
CIA operative E. Howard Hunt, Lane proved to the satisfaction of a jury
that the CIA had indeed been involved in the JFK assassination. His best-selling
book Plausible Denial outlined the circumstances of that libel suit and
its ultimate conclusion.
- Gary Wean - A former detective on the Hollywood beat
of the Los Angeles Police Department, Wean discovered how Meyer Lansky's
West Coast henchman, Mickey Cohen, was conspiring against John F. Kennedy
on behalf of the Israelis. In a meeting with the former sheriff of Dallas
County, Bill Decker, Wean learned a portion of the truth about what really
happened in Dallas.
- NEWS TWISTERS
- Edgar & Edith Stern - Close friends of Clay Shaw,
major financial backers of the pro-Israel Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
of B'nai B'rith, and owners of the WDSU media empire in New Orleans that
not only played a major role in giving vast publicity to Lee Harvey Oswald's
preassassination profile as a "pro-Castro agitator" but later
sought to undermine Jim Garrison's investigation of Clay Shaw.
- Johann Rush - As a young WDSU cameraman, Rush was on
the scene to record Oswald's "pro-Castro" activities. He emerged-many
years later-as the brains behind a "computer-enhanced" version
of the famous Zapruder film of the JFK assassination that author Gerald
Posner cited as "proof' that Oswald acted alone in the president's
- Drew Pearson - Accused by his own mother-in-law of being
a "mouthpiece" for the pro-Israel ADL, Pearson had close ties
to not only the Israeli lobby, but also the CIA and to President Lyndon
Johnson and his cronies. It was Pearson who floated an unlikely story that
Fidel Castro was behind the JFK assassination and who also played a major
influence in shaping Earl Warren's perceptions of the tragedy.
- Jack Anderson - As protégé of Drew Pearson,
Jack Anderson likewise had strange connections that might have biased his
own reportage on the JFK affair. Since 1963 Anderson has promoted a number
of conflicting versions about "who really killed JFK" ranging
from "the Mafia" to Fidel Castro or a combination of both.
- Jack Newfield - A liberal columnist and some-time JFK
assassination buff, Newfield has been a likewise long-standing devotee
of Israel. He made a big splash with a highly fantastic story that missing
Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa had "ordered" two Mafia figures to
arrange the killing of President Kennedy. Not surprisingly, Newfield's
ridiculous story was given wide play in the Establishment media.
- THEORISTS AND/OR PROPAGANDISTS?
- Oliver Stone - His Hollywood extravaganza, JFK, gave
the public a fullblown, full-color, gory-in-every-detail conspiracy theory
on the JFK assassination. Yet, Stone's presentation of the conspiracy was
far from complete and failed to reach any firm conclusions. He deliberately
suppressed the "French connection" which, in turn, was the long-hidden
Israeli connection. Not only was Stone's chief financial backer Israel's
leading arms dealer but also his film distribution company had its origins
in the Lansky crime syndicate. What's more, one of the chief shareholders
in the film company was none other than Bernard Cornfeld, long-time associate
of Permindex figure Tibor Rosenbaum
- Frank Mankiewicz - This former publicist for the Israeli
Mossad-linked Anti-Defamation League had a peculiar part in the events
that took place prior to the murder of Robert F. Kennedy. Then when Oliver
Stone began promoting his film JFK, Mankiewicz popped up as his key public
- Anthony Summers - Author of one book hinting that the
Kennedy family were responsible for the death-maybe the murder-of actress
Marilyn Monroe, Summers wrote another book on the JFK conspiracy. In neither
book did Summers reveal explosive information (of which he was aware) that
could have helped point the direction of those same forces which played
a part in both crimes.
- Robert Morrow - A former CIA contract operative who played
a major role in activities on the periphery of the JFK assassination conspiracy,
Morrow's book on his experiences is rife with detail, yet suspect in the
eyes of many who had looked into his claims. Morrow's book absolves the
key CIA conspirator, James J. Angleton, of involvement in the JFK conspiracy
and portrays him as being "out of the loop" when, in fact, precisely
the opposite was true. Is it a coincidence that Morrow's book publisher
is an American affiliate of an Israeli publishing company?
- G. Robert Blakey - An unlikely choice to serve as director
of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, Blakey had, just two years
previously, served as a character witness for a long-time close associate
of crime boss Meyer Lansky. When it came time to point the blame in the
JFK assassination, Blakey targeted Lansky's protégé, New
Orleans Mafia boss, Carlos Marcello, but looked no further. Blakey, likewise,
found no role by the CIA-or any other intelligence agency-in the JFK assassination.
- David Scheim - The author of a book that pins the murder
of President Kennedy on "the Mafia," Scheim refuses to acknowledge
Permindex board member Clay Shaw's intelligence connections and paints
Israeli loyalist Meyer Lansky as a low-level syndicate figure with no influence
of substance. Scheim's book was published by the American front for an
Israeli publishing company.
- Richard Billings - A journalist with close ties to the
CIA, Billings played a major role in the media's campaign to undermine
New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation of Clay Shaw.
Billings emerged as the prime promoter of the outlandish theory that Garrison
was a Mafia front man trying to take the focus off the Mafia and direct
the attention toward the intelligence community.
- James DiEugenio - Although a deep admirer of both John
F. Kennedy and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, DiEugenio has
tread lightly when inquiring into the ties between Clay Shaw and the Permindex
operation with its multiple links to the Israeli Mossad and the crime syndicate.
- Peter Dale Scott - His years of in-depth research on
the JFK assassination have led him directly to the doorstep of the CIA,
the Mossad and the Lansky Crime Syndicate, yet he has never been prepared
to name names or point in the direction of those very forces, preferring
to sidestep the issue.
