Mossad And The JFK Assassination

by John-F-Kennedy.net Message Board "Israel need not apologize for the assassination or destruction of those who seek to destroy it. The first order of business for any country is the protection of its people."
Washington Jewish Week, October 9, 1997

InMarch,1992,IllinoisRepresentativePaulFindleysaidinThe WashingtonReportonMiddleEastAffairs,Itisinterestingbutnot surprisingtonotethatinallthewordswrittenandutteredaboutthe Kennedyassassination,Israelsintelligenceagency,theMossad,hasnever beenmentioned. ConsideringthattheMossadisquitepossiblythemostruthlessand efficientintelligenceagencyintheworld,itispeculiarthattheyhave neverbeenscrutinizedinrelationtotheKennedyassassination, especiallywhenpracticallyeveryotherentityintheworld(shortof Elvisimpersonators)hasbeenimplicated.Butthatallchangedin January,1994withthereleaseofMichaelCollinsPipersFinal Judgment.Inthisbook,Pipersays,IsraelsMossadwasaprimary(and critical)behindthescenesplayerintheconspiracythatendedthelifeofJFK.

Theirmotive?IsraelsmuchtoutedPrimeMinisterDavidBenGurion, whoruledthatcountryfromitsinceptionin1948untilheresignedon June16,1963,wassoenragedatJohnF.Kennedyfornotallowing Israeltobecomeanuclearpowerthat,Collinsasserts,inhisfinaldays inofficehecommandedtheMossadtobecomeinvolvedinaplotto killAmericaspresident.

InthedaysleadinguptoBenGurionsresignationfromoffice,heand JFKhadbeeninvolvedinanunpublicized,contentiousdebateover thepossibilityofIsraelgettingnuclearcapabilities.Their disagreementeventuallyescalatedintoafullfledgedwarofwords thatwasvirtuallyignoredinthepress.EthanBronnerwroteabout thissecretbattlebetweenJFKandBenGurionyearslaterinaNew YorkTimesarticleonOctober31,1998,callingitafiercelyhidden subject.Infact,theKennedy/BenGurionconversationsarestill classifiedbytheUnitedStatesGovernment.Maybethisisthecase becauseBenGurionsrageandfrustrationbecamesointenseandhis powersogreatwithinIsraelthatPipercontendsitwasatthecenter oftheconspiracytokillJohnKennedy.Thisstanceissupportedby NewYorkbankerAbeFeinberg,whodescribesthesituationassuch: BenGurioncouldbevicious,andhehadsuchahatredoftheoldman[Joe Kennedy,Sr.,JFKsfather].BenGuriondespisedJoeKennedybecause hefeltthatnotonlywasheanantiSemite,butthathehadalsosided withHitlerduringthe1930sand40s.[Wewilltouchuponthisaspect ofthestoryinanupcomingarticleentitledTheCIAandOrganized Crime:TwoSidesoftheSameCoin]. Anyway,BenGurionwasconvincedthatIsraelneedednuclear weaponstoinsureitssurvival,whileKennedywasdeadsetagainstit. Thisinabilitytoreachanagreementcausedobviousproblems.Oneof themrevolvedaroundKennedysdecisionthathewouldmake Americahistoppriorityinregardtoforeignpolicy,andnotIsrael! Kennedyplannedtohonorthe1950TripartiteDeclarationwhichsaid thattheUnitedStateswouldretaliateagainstanynationinthe MiddleEastthatattackedanyothercountry.BenGurion,ontheother hand,wantedtheKennedyAdministrationtosellthemoffensive weapons,particularlyHawkmissiles. Thetwoleadersthusengagedinabrutalletterexchange,but Kennedywouldntbudge.BenGurion,obsessedbythisissue,slipped intototalparanoia,feelingthatKennedysobstinancewasablatant

threattotheveryexistenceofIsraelasanation.Piperwrites,Ben GurionhaddevotedalifetimecreatingaJewishStateandguidingitintothe worldarena.And,inBenGurionseyes,JohnF.Kennedywasanenemyof theJewishpeopleandhisbelovedstateofIsrael.Hecontinues,The nuclearoptionwasnotonlyattheverycoreofBenGurionspersonal worldview,buttheveryfoundationofIsraelsnationalsecuritypolicy. BenGurionwassopreoccupiedwithobtainingnuclearweaponsthat onJune27,1963,elevendaysafterresigningfromoffice,he announced,Idonotknowofanyothernationwhoseneighborsdeclarethat theywishtoterminateit,andnotonlydeclare,butprepareforitbyallmeans availabletothem.Wemusthavenoillusionsthatwhatisdeclaredeveryday inCairo,Damascus,andIraqarejustwords.Thisisthethoughtthatguides theArableadersIamconfidentthatscienceisabletoprovideuswith theweaponsthatwillservethepeaceanddeterourenemies. AvnerCohen,inIsraelandtheBomb,publishedbyColumbia UniversityPress,reinforcesthissenseofurgencybywriting,Imbued withlessonsoftheHolocaust,BenGurionwasconsumedbyfearsofsecurity AnxietyabouttheHolocaustreachedbeyondBenGuriontoinfuse Israelsmilitarythinking.Hefurtheraddsfueltothispointby pointingout,BenGurionhadnoqualmsaboutIsraelsneedforweaponsof massdestruction,andBenGurionsworldviewandhisdecisive governingstyleshapedhiscriticalroleininstigatingIsraelsnuclear progress.

Intentonpursuingthispath,theIsraelisconstructedanuclearfacility atDimona.WhenKennedydemandedthattheU.S.inspectthisplant, BenGurionwassoincensedthatheerectedanotherPHONYfacility thatheldnoevidenceofnuclearresearchanddevelopment.(Doesthis scenariosoundeerilyfamiliartothegamewereplayingwithSaddam HusseininIraqrightnow?)Fullyawareoftheirshenanigans,though, JFKtoldCharlesBartlett,Thesonsofbitcheslietomeconstantly abouttheirnuclearcapability. AvnerCohen,inIsraelandtheBomb,reiteratesthisclaimbysaying thatBenGurionhadtakenthenuclearissuesocloselytoheartthat he,concludedthathecouldnottellthetruthaboutDimonatoAmerican leaders,noteveninprivate. Dr.GeraldM.Steinberg,politicalscienceprofessoratBarIlan UniversitysBESACenterforStrategicStudiesinTelAviv,weighsin bysaying,Between1961and1963,theKennedyadministrationplaceda greatdealofpressureonBenGurionintheefforttopressureforacceptance ofinternationalinspectionofDimonaandIsraeliabdicationoftheirnuclear weapons.ThispressureapparentlydidnotalterIsraelipolicy,butitwasa

Letsreturn,though,toJFKsassassinationandthedirectresultsofit

inregardtotheJewishlobby,Americanforeignpolicy,andthe militarizationofIsrael.TounderstandhowpowerfultheIsraelilobby isinthiscountry,venerableSenatorJ.WilliamFulbrighttoldCBS FacetheNationonApril15,1973,IsraelcontrolstheU.S.Senate.The Senateissubservient,muchtoomuch;weshouldbemoreconcernedabout U.S.interestsratherthandoingthebiddingofIsrael.Thegreatmajorityof theSenateoftheU.S.somewherearound80%iscompletelyinsupportof Israel;anythingIsraelwants;Israelgets.Thishasbeendemonstratedtime andagain,andthishasmade[foreignpolicy]difficultforourgovernment. DoyouhearwhatSenatorFulbrightsaid?Thisisntacrazy conspiracytheoristoraKKKantiSemite.ItsamuchrespectedU.S. Senatorsayingthatabout80%oftheSenateisinIsraelshippocket. AddingclouttothisargumentisRep.PaulFindley,whowasquoted inTheWashingtonReportonMiddleEastAffairsinMarch,1992, DuringJohnKennedyscampaignforthepresidency,agroupofNewYork Jewshadprivatelyofferedtomeethiscampaignexpensesifhewouldletthem sethisMiddleEastpolicy.HedidnotagreeAsthepresident,heprovided onlylimitedsupportofIsrael. TounderstandhowimportantKennedysdecisionswereduringhis shortlivedpresidency,weneedtolookattheissueofcampaign finance.ConsideringhowinfluentialtheIsraelilobbyisintheU.S. Senate(hearkeningbacktothewordsofSenatorFulbright),theyhad tohavebeenenragedwhenPresidentKennedygenuinelywantedto cutthekneesoutfromunderthecurrentcampaignfinancemethods becauseitmadepoliticianssoreliantuponthehugecashinlaysof specialinterestgroups.Regrettably,Kennedydidnothavethetimeto implementthisprogram,andtothisdayourpoliticalsystemisstill monopolizedbylobbyistsfromtheverysamespecialinterestgroups. Onecanonlyimaginewhatchangeswouldhaveoccurredinregardto ourforeignpolicyhadKennedyeradicatedthesevipersandblood suckersfromthehallsofCongress. Tragically,Kennedysideasnevercametofruition,andhisheated battlewithPrimeMinisterBenGurionoverwhetherIsraelshouldbe allowedtodevelopanuclearprogramwasultimatelylost.Thereason

whyisthatLyndonBainesJohnson,whoKennedyintendedtodrop fromhisticketin1964duetohisextremedislikefor,hadacomplete reversalinforeignpolicy.Asyouwillsee,notonlydidIsraelsnuclear programmoveaheadunchecked;theyalsobecametheprimary beneficiaryofourforeignaid. ButthisabsoluteturnaroundwouldnothaveoccurredifKennedy wouldnothavebeenassassinated.UpuntilLBJbecamepresident, KennedydealtwiththeMiddleEastinawaythatmostbenefitedthe U.S.Hisprimarygoalandonewhichwouldmostkeepthepeace wasabalanceofpowerintheMiddleEastsothateachandevery nationwouldbesecure.ThisdecisionadheredtotheTripartite DeclarationwhichtheU.S.signedin1950.ButundertheJohnson administration,thisfragilebalancewasoverturned,andby1967 onlyfouryearsafterKennedysassassinationtheU.S.wasIsraels mainweaponssupplier,andOURbestinterestswereputwellbehind thoseofIsrael! AsMichaelCollinsPiperwrites:Thebottomlineisthis:JFKwas adamantlydeterminedtostopIsraelfrombuildingthenuclearbomb.LBJ simplylookedtheotherway.JFKsdeathdidindeedprovebeneficialto Israelsnuclearambitionsandtheevidenceprovesit. ReuvenPedatzer,inareviewofAvnerCohensIsraelandtheBomb, intheIsraeliNewspaperHaaretzonFebruary5,1999wrote,The murderofAmericanpresidentJohnF.Kennedybroughttoanabruptendthe massivepressurebeingappliedbytheU.S.administrationonthe governmentofIsraeltodiscontinuetheirnuclearprogram.Hecontinues, KennedymadeitquitecleartotheIsraeliPrimeMinisterthathewouldnot underanycircumstancesagreetoIsraelbecominganuclearstate.Pedatzer concludes,HadKennedyremainedalive,itisdoubtfulwhetherIsrael wouldtodayhaveanuclearoption,andthat,BenGurionsdecisionto resignin1963wastakentoalargeextentagainstthebackgroundofthe tremendouspressurethatKennedywasapplyingonhimconcerningthe nuclearissue. Ifyourestillnotconvinced;howaboutsomenumbers?InKennedys

lastfiscalbudgetyearof1964,Israeliaidwas$40million.InLBJsfirst budgetof1965,itsoaredto$71million,andin1966morethantripled fromtwoyearsearlierto$130million!Plus,duringKennedys administration,almostnoneofouraidtoIsraelwasmilitaryin nature.Instead,itwassplitequallybetweendevelopmentloansand foodassistanceunderthePL480Program.Yetin1965underthe Johnsonadministration,20%ofouraidtoIsraelwasforthemilitary, whilein1966,71%wasusedforwarrelatedmaterials.

TheresultofthisshiftinfocusfromtheKennedytoJohnson administrationis,inmyopinion,thePRIMARYreasonbehindour currenttroublesintheMiddleEastwhichculminatedinthe911 attacksandourupcomingwarwithIraq(andbeyond).Ihaveagreat dealofconfidenceinthisstatement,forasMichaelCollinsPiper pointsout,herearetheresultsofJohnF.Kennedysassassination: 1)OurforeignandmilitaryaidtoIsraelincreaseddramaticallyonce LBJbecamepresident. 2)RatherthantryingtomaintainaBALANCEintheMiddleEast, Israelsuddenlyemergedasthedominantforce. 3)SincetheLBJadministration,Israelhasalwayshadweaponry thatwassuperiortoanyofitsdirectneighbors. 4)DuetothisundeniableandobviousincreaseinIsraelsWar Machine,aconstantstrugglehasbeenperpetuatedintheMiddle East. 5)LBJalsoallowedIsraeltoproceedwithitsnucleardevelopment, resultinginthembecomingthe6thlargestnuclearforceinthe world. 6)Finally,ourhugeoutlaysofforeignaidtoIsrael(approximately $10billion/yearwhenallissaidanddone)hascreatedasituationof neverendingattacksandretaliationintheMiddleEast,plus outrightscornandenmityagainsttheU.S.forplayingtheroleof Israelsmilitaryenabler.
