- Final Judgement by Michael Collins Piper has been ignored
or viciously attacked by American Jewish organizations and media. No shock
there since Piper makes a pretty cogent case for the Mossad being the moving
force behind the assassination of JFK. I will attempt to redress this imbalance
and offer a review of the book as a Zionist committed to the strength and
survival of Israel.
- To summarize early, Piper gets lots right and lots wrong.
What is bothersome is it doesn't take much of what he gets right to make
a case for Israeli involvement in the murder. Piper's central point, and
it is a major revelation, is that Clay Shaw, Oswald's handler was on the
board of a Geneva-based trade promotion company called Permindex, which
I accept was a Mossad front for covert operations.
- From this point Piper works backwards and connects Clay
to the Mossad, the Mossad to Lansky and organized crime, Lansky to the
CIA, the CIA to heroin production in South-East Asia, the heroin producers
to the heroin processors of Marseilles, the processors to the OAS, the
rebellious French intelligence outfit determined to assassinate Degaulle
for pulling out of Algeria, the OAS to the Mossad and now we've come full
- Kennedy infuriated Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion
by demanding an end to Israel's nuclear program. He equally infuriated
organized crime by promising to end American involvement in Viet Nam, and
thus cutting off its major source of raw opium. Even though he frightened
many in the CIA with his declarations that the organization had to be replaced,
and by his refusal to bring down Castro, that was not a prime motive in
the assassination. The CIA was involved because its top gun James Angleton
was an Israeli agent. His duty was to prepare the patsy and plant "false
flags" in the Cuban exile community. In fact, even the alleged involvement
of Italian mafia leaders was a deliberate false flag as well. The real
killers were OAS-employed Corsican hitmen, or at least one was for certain,
and they were recruited by the Mossad's European chief assassin, Yitzhak
- I would dismiss the whole thing as a fantastic yarn,
except four years ago I began researching the assassination of Yitzhak
Rabin, and I independently discovered too many facts in common with Piper's.
The most uncanny is that I also conclude that French intelligence provided
the operational guidance behind Rabin's murder.
- I don't intend to retell Final Judgement. The following
points are aimed at people who have already read Piper's book.
- * I was already familiar with the Permindex story, having
read Larouche literature. I'm not happy that he adopts the findings of
a pro-Aryan organization whose primary purpose in life seems to be to destroy
the British royal family. The fact that Piper is employed by the Liberty
Lobby and their outlet, Spotlight, is not really thrilling to me either.
Even less exciting are his quotes from Jewish traitors like Ostrovsky and
Lilienthal. And now I will elaborate.
- There is a superficial similarity between me and Victor
Ostrovsky in that we both are exposing the misdeeds of Israeli intelligence
agencies. The difference, and it is telling, is that he ran away to Canada
to tell his tale, while I live and raise my family in Israel. His motives
are highly suspect, mine are honest: I want my friends, family, and especially
my children, to live in a better Israel for all ages.
- That said, about half of Piper's sources are Jewish,
and other than Gerald Posner, they are mostly respected assassination researchers.
He is not at all reluctant to cite as an inspiration the Jewish investigator/attorney
Mark Lane, and in fact Lane was not at all reluctant to represent Spotlight
in a well publicized legal action against the CIA. All in all, Piper doesn't
sound like an anti-semite and I can spot one. I believe he is a sincere
- * The main difference between my research and his is
I found the evidence to prove my case for Israeli secret service involvement
in the Rabin murder. I gathered hundreds of pages of hospital, court and
police records, combined them with indisputable first hand testimony and
put together an airtight case. Piper does not succeed nearly as well. His
argument, though deft IS all circumstantial. The weight of his circumstantial
evidence is impressive but it is far from conclusive.
- * Piper does not have a handle on the personal dynamics
of Israeli politics. For example, he writes off Menachem Begin as a "terrorist."
Wrong. He was a freedom fight in the truest sense of the word and probably
the only honorable person to serve as Israel's prime minister. He somehow
ties him into the plot because he had ties with gangster Mickey Cohen.
Heck, everyone in Israel knows about these ties. Back in the late 40s when
no one else would arm us, the gangsters used their muscle to save our fledgling
state. So what?
- But Piper intimates that just by knowing Cohen, Begin
was in on the plot. That is out of the question. In 1948, Ben Gurion ordered
Yitzhak Rabin to murder Begin on a ship called the Altalena. Begin would
never have cooperated with Ben Gurion on a Hannuka party, let alone in
the murder of an American president.
- Ditto, Shamir. In the mid-1940s, Ben Gurion rounded up
Shamir and his militia for the British and had them sent to incarceration
camps in Central Africa. Admittedly, Shamir did work for the Mossad during
Ben Gurion's regimes, but their personal ties were strained, to say the
least. While Begin would never have cooperated with Ben Gurion in a presidential
hit, it is almost as unlikely that Shamir would have. A better candidate
would be Shimon Peres, Ben Gurion's close aide and the man who started
the Israeli nuclear program with French collusion. He is suspect number
one in the Rabin assassination.
- * Piper mentions the well-known fact that Jack Ruby met
with "Israeli journalists" at the Dallas police station the night
before he finished off Oswald. Possibly enforcing Piper's claims, many
of my correspondents have pointed out to me that in Leah Rabin's biography,
she notes that her husband Yitzhak was in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
And Rabin, himself, admitted that he was in Cambodia the next year inspecting
an Israeli "experimental farm." Yes, Rabin could have been one
of the "journalists" and yes, the farm could have been growing
- That Rabin was up to his ears in drug running is illustrated
during his tenure as Shimon Peres's Defence Minister from 1984-86. This
was the era of Iran Contra and Israel was involved in selling arms to Iran
to free American hostages. And the money was used to buy cocaine in Latin
America, ship it to the US, use the profits to purchase arms and funnel
these to the Contras.
- Like Piper, Poindexter and North tried to shift the blame
for the operation to Israel. Now being logical, Israel had its interests
in the scheme; there was money and diplomatic brownie points. But Israel
had no interest in freeing American prisoners or in funding the Contras.
Iran Contra had to have been an American operation where the Israelis were
called in for operational help.
- I see the Kennedy assassination in the same terms. Oswald
had been trained to be a stooge by American military intelligence from
1957, before the foundation of the Dimona Nuclear Reactor was even laid.
Indeed, Ben Gurion could have been so angered by Kennedy's insistence on
the dismemberment of Dimona that he agreed to contribute Mossad expertise
to his assassination. However, the assassination's core plot was American
and its genesis predated any possible Israeli involvement.
- * By the same token, Piper implicates the Mossad in the
murders of Americans who knew too much years after JFK was gone. William
Colby's demise is his prime example. This implication dismisses the long
list of political murders and murder attempts in the US since 1963, or
for that matter, since at least Lincoln's time.
- There IS a culture of political murder in the US, it
has been on high gear since Clinton has assumed power, it goes back at
least 150 years and Israel, the Zionists and Mossad have nothing to do
- * Piper paints Israel as the murder and crime capital
of the Middle East. May we remind him that assassination was the only means
of changing Middle East regimes for a thousand years before Zionism emerged
and that most of the hard drugs sold in Europe originate from the Syrian-controlled
Beka Valley and Afghanistan. Israel didn't invent the rules of Middle Eastern
politics and may well have been forced to adopt them to survive.
- * Piper makes a connection between the JFK assassination
and Israel's technical help in founding the Chinese nuclear program. While
the fact of Sino/Israeli nuclear coooperation may be genuine, Piper fails
totally to find its connection to Dealey Plaza. So why include it?
- * Similarly, since 9 of 22 Warren Commission lawyers
were Jews, they must have had an interest in the coverup. Most specious
is Piper's connection between Detroit multi-millionaire Max Fischer and
Michigan Congressman Gerald Ford in the coverup. As President, Ford was
a disaster for Israel, twice withholding deliveries of fighter jets until
Israel withdrew from positions in the Sinai and Golan Heights. He was no
Israeli puppet and seemed to revel in pushing then-Prime Minister Yitzhak
- If I would draw any conclusions, assuming Piper is right,
it's that knowledge of Israel's involvement in the JFK assassination is
being used to force Israel to commit suicide. How else can one explain
Rabin's decision in 1993 to accede to American (ie CFR) demands and hand
over the very heart of his nation to a ragtag band of terrorists and arm
them to the teeth to boot? Perhap's Rabin's strange appearance in Dallas
was the tool used against the Jewish people in the unstoppable American
quest to make Israel defenceless.
- * And one cannot ignore the strange demise of JFK Jr.
Four witnesses saw the explosion that downed his plane. One was a reporter
for the Martha's Vineyard Times. He radioed the airport tower that he was
readying to land and then his plane fell 8000 feet in a few seconds. Yes,
I'm sure he was murdered. And yes, the disastrous Israeli political establishment
had one heck of a motive for involvement. The latest Kennedy to die violently
was the only American editor to expose the true conspiracy behind Rabin's
assassination. He did it in grand style in a 13 page article in the March
19997 issue of his magazine George. And he had every intention of continuing
his exposes until he got to the bottom of the matter. We don't know what
drove him to stand alone in seeking the Rabin truth, but it may have had
much to do with the information contained within Final Judgement.
- Let me conclude by observing that the Israeli public
knew nothing whatsoever about how Rabin was really murdered until I took
the trouble of explaining the truth to them. Today the polls show that
65% of my fellow Israelis want the Rabin assassination reinvestigated.
We are waking up to the ugly reality of the kind of leadership we are saddled
with. But I take the opposite view of Piper: my research says America corrupted
Israel and not the other way around. And, probably unlike Piper, I am seeking
the truth so that one morning the rotten murderers Americans and Israelis
call their political leaders, will not make my country hopelessly unable
to defend itself against even rottener forces.
