- THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH: ISRAEL'S CENTRAL ROLE IN THE JFK ASSASSINATION
- 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 follows:
- "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 book.
- 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 Little Man:
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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 F. Kennedy.
- 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
- 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 my thesis.
- 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 "missing link."
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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 conspiracy.
- 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 crime.
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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 Israel.
- 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
- 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,
- 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
- 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 murder.
- 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 relations man.
- 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.
- Robert Morningstar
- Thank you , David...
- I agree with his views. It was a big kettle of fish with common
interests in the same cesspool that converged in Dealey Plaza that day.
- Significantly, Itzak Rabin was a Mossad man in Dallas that day. His
wife, Leah Rabin, wrote in her biography of the assassinated leader that they were both in
Dallas the day JFK was shot.
- I'm sure you know the story that Jack Ruby was accompanied all Friday
and Saturday by 2 "foreign journalists" for whom he acted as
"translator". Jack Ruby spoke "Yiddish" and Russian. I wonder if one
of those "reporters" was actually Itzak Rabin.
- Robert M*
