- Note - Barry Chamish is a frequent contributor
to our site and has several articles in our database including his breakthrough
research exposing the reality of the Rabin assasination plot.
- (IsraelWire IST) Journalist Barry Chamish
has announced that he is holding explosive new evidence which conclusively
proves that Yigal Amir did not shoot live ammunition at Yitzchak Rabin.
In the past week, he attained seven new documents, three of which finally
explain the true circumstances of the prime minister's murder.
- Earlier this month, Chamish signed contracts
with Gefen Books to publish Hebrew and Russian editions of his book "Who
Murdered Yitzchak Rabin" and with American film producer Peter Goldman,
to make a full length television documentary based on his research. During
the course of Goldman's fact-finding trip to Israel, the documents emerged.
- "As soon as I saw them, I knew the
Rabin assassination conspiracy was proved beyond any doubt," says
Chamish. "The documents are signed and witnessed by too many prominent
people to be denied."
- Chamish will not release the documents
to the public immediately. He is working with Gefen Books and Goldman to
coordinate the right moment to achieve maximum impact. "Until now,"
admits Chamish, "I've had to release invaluable material in a haphazard
fashion. I achieved a great deal of successful persuasion among a third
of Israelis but the significance of my evidence was lost on the rest of
the public. This time we are working towards maximum effect."
- The documents will be released in tandem
with the publication of "Who Murdered Yitzchak Rabin" by Gefen
Books and the beginning of filming of Goldman's documentary, most likely
in March. Gefen Books updated their scheduled release date in order that
the book be made available for reading before the upcoming elections.
- Chamish promises the documents will have
a strong impact on how people vote. While refusing to allow publication
of the actual documents, Chamish is showing them to trusted journalists
to verify their importance. No one has been disappointed according to Chamish.
- The documents illustrate that Rabin was
murdered somewhat differently than what Chamish claims in his book. He
based much of his thesis on Police Inspector Baruch Gladstein's testing
of Rabin's clothing which seems to scientifically prove that Rabin was
shot in the back twice at point blank and near point blank ranges, while
Amir never got that close. The new documents prove that Gladstein was,
in fact, not given Rabin's actual clothing to test. A preliminary comparison
of films of the suit Rabin was wearing and the one tested by the police
show marked differences.
- On the surface, the loss of Gladstein's
testimony would appear to negate the findings in Chamish's book. "Not
at all," he insists. "The new evidence finally tells us how Rabin
died and illustrates Gladstein's unwitting role in the cover-up."
- The American edition of "Who Murdered
Yitzchak Rabin" is sold out in Israel, though the Zionist Book Club
(02-672-3703) has 150 more copies on order.
- Chamish will be addressing the World
Zionist Organization in Tel-Aviv on the evening of January 3. He is planning
to add new details of what is contained in the documents but will not distribute
any copies of them.
