If Osama bin Laden is the man behind the attack that caused the death of thousands of Americans on September 11, I, like most Americans want to him to suffer the ultimate punishment for his crime. No person or nation that commits terrorism against America should escape punishment.
But now I am going to make a statement that may well shock you. If you agree that those who commit terrorist acts against America should be punished, then America should put Israel at the top of our hit list; for in this article, I will prove that Israel has committed deliberate acts of murderous terrorism and treachery against America.
Israel’s acts of terrorism and treachery against America have not only gone unpunished, but have been rewarded by politicians who have treasonously betrayed the United States.
I will show that Israel has committed more continuing terrorism in the last half century than any other nation on earth. Then, I will expose Israel’s terrorism and treachery against the United States of America. Finally, I will show the shocking facts proving that Israel deliberately sought the death of thousands of Americans on September 11.
Why was America attacked?
No one would argue that whatever his motivations, if bin Laden was behind the horror of the WTC attacks, he deserves punishment for killing so many innocent people. At the same time, it is vital that we know why bin Laden and millions of others around the world have come to hate America. Why are so many willing to risk or even sacrifice their lives to get at us? I certainly hope no one reading this is so naпve as to believe that the growing millions who hate America do so because we are “free.” That canard has to be the most ridiculous notion ever sold to the American people since the pet rock. To end the threat of terrorism against the American people, we must know the true reason why we are so hated. Modern technology makes mass murder and terrorism so ridiculously easy that just about anyone can do it. It cannot be stopped by military might. In fact, even the brute force we are using in Afghanistan supposedly to wipe out terror - already shows signs of whipping up enough world-wide hatred against America to give rise to a thousand new terrorists for every one terrorist we might kill.
I also wonder what the kill ratio is in Afghanistan. Perhaps 1 member of the al-Qaeda network is killed for every 10 run-of-the-mill Afghan soldiers and civilians who are basically just trying to get through their own lives like the rest of us. Or maybe it’s 1 terrorist for a 100 Afghanis. I suspect the real figure is more like a 1000 non-terrorists dead for the life of 1 genuine terrorist who might ever bother America.
Perhaps we should have enough courage to consider the possible reasons why so many might hate us. Only when we have all the facts, rather than cute little clichйs like “They were attacking freedom,” can we decide the best way we can protect our people in the future.
By the way, how do we define an “attack on American freedom?” I would say that a real “attack on freedom” is trashing the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States. The Ten Amendments are the very core of what American freedom actually is. George Bush and the U.S. Congress, armed with the newspeak U.S.A. Patriot Act, did infinitely more to take away our Constitutional freedoms than bin Laden ever could.
The real reason we have suffered terrorism
The real reason we have suffered the terrorism of the WTC attack is shockingly simple.
Too many American politicians have treasonously betrayed the American people by blindly supporting the leading terrorist nation on earth: Israel.
The American mass media and the government cannot have it both ways. If they are motivated to attack Afghanistan for giving aid and comfort to terrorists, then some Palestinians naturally find motivation to attack America for giving aid and even military support to Israel, a nation that has committed unrelenting terrorism against them.
Traitors to the United States have allowed a terrorist foreign nation to control the United States Government. Some readers might think it preposterous for me to assert that that a foreign nation controls America. But, consider the fact that the former head of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee, William Fulbright, said precisely that. He asserted on ABC’s Face the Nation television program that “Israel Controls the United States Senate.”(1) And, Senator Fulbright was no dummy; it is in his name that the brightest students scramble after the so-named “Fulbright” scholarships. Not only did Senator Fulbright make this powerful indictment, but the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, George Brown, as well as many others, have said essentially the same thing.
We can say we can't possibly get the Congress to support a (Israeli) program like this. And they say don't worry about the Congress. We will take care of the Congress. This is somebody from another country, but they can do it. They own, you know, the banks in this country, the newspapers. Just look at where the Jewish money is. — (2)(General George S. Brown, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff)
Of course, General Brown actually understated the Jewish control of the American media. It is true that they control the most influential newspapers in America, including the top three: The New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. They also own the top three newsmagazines Time, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report. But, even more importantly, they thoroughly dominate the television and broadcast media, the two largest media conglomerates being Time-Warner and Disney, and their domination includes the network news executives of the main three networks: ABC, CBS and NBC. Control of the media by pro-Israeli partisans is another subject for another time; but if you would like complete documentation, please go to my website www.davidduke.com and pull up a chapter from My Awakening called “Who Runs the Media.” The extreme pro-Israeli partisanship of the media is why most Americans are woefully ignorant of Israel’s terrorist record. All this article needs to do is apply just a tiny pinprick into the balloon of Israeli propaganda, for it will take only a few good jabs to burst the balloon of lies surrounding Israel.
I will show you documentary evidence that during the last 50 years Israel has engaged in more murderous terrorism than any other nation in the world; and that by supporting its criminal behavior, America is now reaping the fanatical hatred of hundreds of millions of people around the globe. Support for Israel’s terrorism has directly led to the terrorism now going on against the United States. Most Americans don’t even realize the magnitude and scope of Israeli terrorism because of the Jewish media control mentioned by General Brown. A pertinent example of their incredible media power is their ability to propagate the Big Lie that the WTC attack had nothing at all to do with Israel; that the kamikaze attackers hated and attacked Americans because we are “free.”
The Big Lie
The Jewish-dominated American mass media and the Israeli-controlled politicians do not want the American people to fully realize the incredibly high price America pays for blindly supporting Israel. In the aftermath of the attacks on September 11, 2001, even President Bush repeated the absurd lie, alleging the attack happened because they hate the fact that we are free. If, as the media says, bin Laden is behind the terrorism, then they know that the attack occurred not because he hates freedom. Just three years ago, ABC television and PBS Frontline interviewed bin Laden during the time of the Clinton administration. Bin Laden clearly stated why he opposed America: They (Americans) have put themselves at the mercy of a disloyal government,… it is Israel inside America. Take the sensitive ministries such as the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense and the CIA, you will find that the Jews have the upper hand in them. They make use of America to further their plans for the world…”
For over half a century, Muslims in Palestine have been (by the Jews) slaughtered and assaulted and robbed of their honor and of their property. Their houses have been blasted, their crops destroyed…This is my message to the American people: to look for a serious government that looks out for their interests and does not attack other people’s lands, or other people’s honor…”(3) Notwithstanding any of his alleged crimes, bin Laden has never in his entire life uttered a word against Democracy! The media invented the lie about attacking Democracy to hide the real truth; that America is being attacked in retaliation for the American government’s support of Israel’s terrorist policies in the Mideast. The unanimity of the media in propagating this huge lie without contradiction should make every thoughtful person suspect that Americans are not getting the whole truth from the media.
First, let’s take a look at Israel’s terrorism against the Palestinians.
Israel: a mass murderer as Head of State
Israel’s Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, is one of the world’s most bloodstained terrorists. He is responsible for the cold-blooded slaughter of at least 1,500 men, women and children in the Beirut refugee camps of Chatila and Sabra. Even a formal Israeli commission found Sharon personally responsible for the Lebanese massacres.(4)
In 1982, as Israel’s defense minister, Sharon directed Israel's invasion of Lebanon and the carpet bombing and devastation of the city of Beirut (In Lebanon five times more women and children died than in the September New York attack). This terror bombing was carried out by Jews using jet fighters and bombs supplied by the United States. After the Israeli military devastation and occupation, Sharon forcibly removed Palestinian resistance fighters from Lebanon. Many Palestinian women, children and old people were left behind in refugee camps near Beirut. The United States publicly guaranteed their safety and promised that they would quickly be reunited with their loved ones. When Sharon plotted their murder, he not only planned a bloody act of terrorism against the refugees; he knew it was an act of treachery against the United States that would raise intense hatred against America.
On the night of September 16, 1982, Sharon sent Phalangist murder squads into two Palestinian refugee camps, Sabra and Chatila. With Israeli tanks and troops closely surrounding the camps to prevent any of the Palestinians from escaping, the murder squads machine-gunned, bayoneted, and bludgeoned Palestinian civilians all that night, the next day and the following night; all while the Israelis surrounding the camps listened gleefully to the machine gun fire and screams coming from inside. Sharon then sent in bulldozers to hide as much of the atrocity as he could. At least 1500 Palestinian men, women and children were butchered, and perhaps as many as 2500. (An official Lebanese investigation set the figure at 2500) Even after the efforts of Sharon’s bulldozers, many Palestinians remained unburied, and Red Cross workers found whole families; including hundreds of elderly and little children, with their throats cut or disemboweled. Uncounted numbers of women and girls were also raped before they were slaughtered.
Ariel Sharon is sought for trial by the Hague Tribunal, the same body that succeeded in extraditing former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic for charges of crimes against humanity in Kosovo. Sharon will not travel to Belgium for fear of arrest by the International Court for the massacre.(5)
Although he is sought for his Chatila and Sabra murders, Sharon could be tried for any of a dozen other massacres committed during his sterling career, crimes against humanity that go back at least as far as 1953. The Israeli newspaper, Ha’aretz, recalls Sharon’s leading of a massacre in the village of Kibya in 1953, “The soldiers of Major Ariel Sharon killed 70 Palestinians in the reprisal raid, most of them women and children “(6)
America, which clamored for the Hague Tribunal to arrest and try Milosevic, pretends to be unaware of Sharon’s mass murder. Instead of handing Sharon an arrest warrant for mass murder and putting him in the shackles that he deserves, President Bush greets Ariel Sharon with handshakes and hugs! How the world must snicker in disbelief when Bush confers with Sharon on “fighting terrorism.”
If President Bush is truly serious about punishing nations that support or harbor terrorists, he will have to begin with Israel, a nation that elected one of the world’s worst terrorists and mass murderers as its the Head of State. Does America’s Israel-controlled Senate punish Israel for harboring terrorists? No, instead we supply their terrorists with billions of American taxpayer’s dollars and the very weapons with which they kill!
Israel’s murder of the Palestinian refugees after the United States had publicly guaranteed their safety was not only a crime against humanity, but also one of treachery against America. Sharon and the others involved were completely aware of America’s well-publicized promise of the refugees’ safety.
The Beirut Sabra and Chatila Massacre was the chief motivation of the Lebanese suicide bombing attack that killed 241 American Marines in Beirut less than a year later, and it clearly demonstrates how American support of Israeli terrorism leads to terrible consequences for the United States. The Los Angeles Times, in discussing a revealing book by a former agent of the Israeli Mossad (secret service), showed that the Mossad had foreknowledge of the terrorist attack on the Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1983, but treacherously did not warn America.(7) Among Ostrovsky's more shocking allegations are that Mossad failed to share with the U.S. detailed intelligence that might have averted the 1983 suicide bombing of the Beirut Marine barracks that killed 241 U.S. servicemen;…
Israel: founded by terror against the British and Palestinians
In their effort to wrest control of Palestine from British control, the Zionists waged a campaign of relentless terror, including the bombing of the King David Hotel, which killed 93 people. They ruthlessly murdered British officials and soldiers. The Zionists assassinated anyone in their way, including the world-respected U.N. mediator, Count Folke Bernadotte, who dared to tell the world of the Zionist terror and murder campaign. A favorite tactic of the Irgun and Stern terrorist gangs was to kidnap British soldiers and slowly torture them to death. Israel was also the first nation to employ the modern terrorist technique of the letter bomb; and over the years sent out hundreds of them, killing dozens of their enemies and many bystanders all over the world. The current terrorism of mailing anthrax infected letters is simply a logical stepchild of the letter bomb.
The terror of Deir Yassin
The Palestinians, of course, have been the greatest victims of this half a century of Israeli terror. In fact, Israel carved its state out of Palestine through a deliberate policy of mass terror against the Palestinians. It was the method by which they drove 800,000 of them from their homes, businesses and farms(9). In his book The Revolt(10), former Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, boasts about his role in the massacre of the 254 Palestinians at Deir Yassin. (Most of the victims were elderly men, women and children who remained in the Israeli-occupied village) In his book, Begin points out that Deir Yassin and other massacres caused panic among the residents, causing them to flee in terror from their homes. This intentional mass terror enabled the Zionists to take control of Palestine. And, it should be noted that the refugees are still not permitted to return home after more than half a century!
What did the Zionist terrorists actually do at Deir Yassin and at other villages that caused the Palestinian people to flee in fear? A Red Cross doctor, Jacques de Reynier, chief representative of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Jerusalem gave a shocking account of the massacre in his official report.(11)
De Reynier arrived at the village on the second day and saw “the mopping up,” as one of the Israeli terrorists put it to him. It had been done with machine guns, then grenades, and was finished off with knives. The Jews decapitated some of the victims and fatally maimed 52 children in sight of their mothers. They cut open 25 pregnant women's wombs and butchered the babies in front of them.
Israelis present at Deir Yassin have confirmed these atrocities. After his retirement in 1972, Israeli Haganah officer, Colonel Meir Pa’el, stated the following about Deir Yassin in Yediot Ahronot, a major Jewish publication:
The Irgun and LEHI men came out of hiding and began to `clean' the houses. They shot whoever they saw, women and children included, the commanders did not try to stop the massacre…they were taken to the quarry between Deir Yassin and Giv'at Shaul, and murdered in cold blood... (12)
The commander of the Haganah unit that controlled Deir Yassin after the massacre, Zvi Ankori, made this statement in the Israeli newspaper Davar:
I went into six to seven houses. I saw cut off genitalia and women's crushed stomachs. According to the shooting signs on the bodies, it was direct murder.(13)
Have you seen any TV documentaries or any Hollywood movies about the Israeli terror of Deir Yassin or of many thousands of other Israeli acts of terror against the Palestinian people? You have heard plenty of violin music for Jewish victims of Hitler, but have you heard any violins for the women at Deir Yassin who had their babies cut from their wombs by Jewish Supremacists? Have you heard any violins for any of the other thousands of Palestinian victims of Begin, Shamir, Barak, and Sharon? Befitting Israel’s long record of terrorism against the Palestinian people, Israel has the nasty habit of electing its most notorious terrorists and mass murderers as its Head of State.
The United States has a whole division of the Justice Department dedicated to hunting down Nazis who have committed crimes against humanity. While America doggedly pursues elderly suspected German war criminals, American Presidents have state dinners honoring Jewish ones!
Mr. Bush is fond of talking about wiping out evil terrorists, yet was not a massacre such as Deir Yassin clearly an act of consummate evil?
As Begin points out in The Revolt, terror against Palestinians was a crucial factor in establishing Israel. It established the Jewish state and it truly set the tone for a half century of ongoing terror against the Palestinian people.
52 years of Ongoing Terror against Palestinians
Since 1948, Palestinians have faced ongoing terrorism from Israel. Hundreds of villages have been obliterated and literally wiped from the map. Tens of thousands of homes have been bombed, bull-dozed or dynamited during peacetime! Tens of thousands of men, women and children have been killed. Even greater numbers have been blinded, crippled, disfigured and maimed. Hundreds of thousands have been imprisoned and/or tortured.
In going after Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation, Israel has never been shy about bombing refugee camps full of women and children. Israeli tanks, helicopters and even jet fighters are used to drop bombs or fire missiles into the heart of Palestinian neighborhoods and refugee camps packed with women and children. These weapons cannot discriminate between a supposed terrorist or an eight-year-old little girl. Such a weapon can kill a child as surely as it can kill enemies of the state.
Palestinians suspected of actively opposing Israel’s occupation of the West Bank or Gaza, have had their homes and families attacked by Israeli tank cannons, missiles or bombs. And after their suspect is killed or imprisoned, the Israeli army bulldozes or dynamites their family’s home. Thousands of homes have been destroyed in this fashion. Israel has also killed hundreds of Palestinian leaders by assassination and terroristic attacks. These attacks often kill innocent bystanders. Many of those assassinated have never been associated with any terror or violence of any kind; they simply were poets, writers, or clerics who by their words have inspired in their countrymen the desire for freedom. The Israeli Prime Minister previous to Ariel Sharon was Ehud Barak. In 1972, during peacetime between Israel and Lebanon, he led an Israeli commando death squad into Beirut, Lebanon where he personally murdered Palestinian writer Kamal Edwan. In the middle of the night, using silenced submachine guns, he and his team slaughtered Edwan while he slept in their bed. When the newly elected Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Barak, came to New York and Washington, the Jewish-controlled press treated this murderer, as though he was a conquering hero.
The double standards never seem to end. When an Israeli cabinet official, Rechavam Zeevi, was assassinated by Palestinians in October of 2001, Sharon and some U.S. officials denounced it as “terrorism.” If the shooting down of Zeevi is indeed terrorism, what should we call many years of Israeli assassinations of hundreds of Palestinian political figures, philosophers, clerics and poets? Why doesn’t the press point out that Zeevi was himself a Jewish Supremacist who described Palestinians living and working illegally in Israel as "lice" and a "cancer in our midst.(14)” Zeevi himself was a terrorist who advocated the forcible expulsion of all Palestinians from the occupied territories and the assassination of all those who resist Israel occupation. He even publicly called for the assassination of Yassir Arafat. Yet, the same press that calls his assassination “terrorism” never calls the pro-assassination Zeevi a terrorist or even a Jewish Supremacist. The Zeevi assassination itself was in direct response to the Israeli assassination of a Palestinian leader a few weeks before.
In 1991, at an Israeli cabinet meeting, Zeevi said that President George Bush, by pressing Israel to peace talks, was "an enemy of Israel" and that “America was plotting a second Holocaust.(15)” With a supposed “ally” like this, does America need any enemies?
The power of the Jews in the world media keeps many from fully grasping the terror of hundreds of Israeli assassinations. In fact, even before the WTC terror attack in September, the BBC instructed their reporters to call Israel’s assassination of their enemies as “targeted killings” rather than exactly what they are: assassinations.(16) However, the BBC (which has a heavily Jewish executive staff) referred to the Zeevi killing as an assassination, and not a “targeted killing.” The public has been subjected to this kind of sanitized and distorted media treatment of Israel for years. It is no wonder that few Britons and even fewer Americans are little aware of Israel’s record of terrorism. It is for this reason that I cannot blame most Americans for their ignorance of Israeli terrorism.
The terror of Israeli torture: at least 150,000 victims
The brutal torture of thousands of one’s enemies must be classified as a particularly vicious form of terrorism. Tens of thousands of Palestinians have been tortured in Israeli jails. A Jewish human rights group in Israel confirmed in a 60-page report that 85% of Palestinian detainees undergo torture while in custody.(17) And make no mistake about it; many of the tortures endured by these Palestinian victims are the stuff of one’s worst nightmares. Israeli torture includes everything from choking victims with urine and feces soaked bags tied over their heads, to using electric cattle prods for anal rape and mutilation. Israel often doesn’t even admit to who they are holding, so if they decide to kill or torture a Palestinian to death while he is in custody, his body will simply disappear, or they will later claim that they died in a battle with Israeli police before capture. Many thousands of Palestinians and Lebanese have died while in Israeli custody.
A feature article by Joel Greenburg in the very pro-Israel New York Times stated matter-of-factly that Israel tortures 500 to 600 Palestinians every month.(18) That figure, which is probably too low as it comes from the pro-Israel New York Times, means that each year at least 6,000 Palestinians are tortured in Israel. Torture of Palestinians has been going on in Israel since 1948 (53 years to date). Even if one uses just one-half of the number of Palestinians that Mr. Greenburg says suffer torture each year -- at least 150,000 human beings have been tortured in Israeli jails since the founding of the Jewish state.
Bowing to Israel’s public relations problems because of its legalized torture, in 1999 the Israeli Supreme Court made an intentionally vague ruling that torture is sometimes illegal, but Israeli and Palestinian rights groups offer much evidence that the ruling was just a public-relations veneer. They offer evidence that torture continues just as did before the ruling.(19)
Following Israel’s lead, Jewish journalists are now beginning to advocate the use of torture in America! A recent issue of Newsweek headlined an article entitled ‘Time to think about torture; it’s a new world, and survival may well require old techniques that seemed out of the question.”(20) Even a supposed Jewish champion of civil liberties, Alan Dershowitz, now advocates it.(21)
Victor Ostrovsky, a former Israeli Mossad agent, wrote two books about Israel’s terror against their enemies. In one of them, he discusses the fate of Palestinians who illegally cross the border in search of work in Israel. Many thousands of these young men simply are never heard from again after being captured by Israel’s forces. Some of them are taken to the ABC research facilities where they endure the indescribable terror of chemical, nuclear or biological warfare.
…ABC standing for atomic, bacteriological, and chemical. It was where our top epidemiological scientists were developing various doomsday machines…should there be an all-out war in which this type of weapon would be needed; there was no room for error. The Palestinian infiltrators came in handy in this regard. As human guinea pigs, they could make sure the weapons the scientist were developing worked properly and could verify how fast they worked and make them more efficient.(22)
Terror against the Lebanese People
During the Israeli invasion and occupation of Lebanon from 1978 to 2000, at least 15,000 civilians died. An example of Israeli terror was its intentional bombing of the UN center in Qana, Lebanon that occurred just five years ago. The following article was not written by a Palestinian, Arab or even a Muslim, but by Englishman Robert Fisk, one of the most respected British journalists working in the Mideast. He writes for the London newspaper, The Independent. If an American wants to understand the hatred that Israel is generating toward America, dare to read this gruesome account and dare to take a close look at the pictures showing the realities of Israeli terror.
Most Americans have read countless gory accounts Jewish Holocaust atrocities or even stories about the Israeli victims of Palestinian suicide bombers. They have seen dozens of the most gruesome movies or documentaries about Jewish victims, but most Americans have never read even one account like the one quoted here. You won’t read such accounts in American newspapers or news magazines.
Qana, southern Lebanon - It was a massacre. Not since Sabra and Chatila had I seen the innocent slaughtered like this. The Lebanese refugee women and children and men lay in heaps, their hands or arms or legs missing, beheaded or disemboweled. There were well over a hundred of them. A baby lay without a head. The Israeli shells had scythed through them as they lay in the United Nations shelter, believing that they were safe under the world's protection. Like the Muslims of Srebrenica, the Muslims of Qana were wrong. In front of a burning building of the UN's Fijian battalion headquarters, a girl held a corpse in her arms, the body of a gray- haired man whose eyes were staring at her, and she rocked the corpse back and forth in her arms, keening and weeping and crying the same words over and over: "My father, my father." A Fijian UN soldier stood amid a sea of bodies and, without saying a word, held aloft the body of a headless child. …When I walked towards them, I slipped on a human hand... Israel's slaughter of civilians in this terrible 10-day offensive - 206 by last night - has been so cavalier, so ferocious, that not a Lebanese will forgive this massacre. There had been the ambulance attacked on Saturday, the sisters killed in Yohmor the day before, the 2-year-old girl decapitated by an Israeli missile four days ago. And earlier yesterday, the Israelis had slaughtered a family of 12 - the youngest was a four- day-old baby - when Israeli helicopter pilots fired missiles into their home. Shortly afterwards, three Israeli jets dropped bombs only 250 meters from a UN convoy on which I was traveling, blasting a house 30 feet into the air in front of my eyes. Traveling back to Beirut to file my report on the Qana massacre to the Independent last night, I found two Israeli gunboats firing at the civilian cars on the river bridge north of Sidon…
A French UN trooper muttered oaths to himself as he opened a bag in which he was dropping feet, fingers, pieces of people's arms…
We had suddenly become not UN troops and journalists but Westerners, Israel's allies, an object of hatred and venom. One bearded man with fierce eyes stared at us, his face dark with fury. "You are Americans", he screamed at us. "Americans are dogs. You did this. Americans are dogs." President Bill Clinton has allied himself with Israel in its war against "terrorism" and the Lebanese, in their grief, had not forgotten this. Israel's official expression of sorrow was rubbing salt in their wounds. "I would like to be made into a bomb and blow myself up amid the Israelis", one old man said…(23) If every American read the above article by Robert Fisk, it would help them to understand why America is so hated and why we now face terrorist kamikazes. If you would like to know the real motivations of terrorists like Osama bin Laden, The Nation magazine, did an interview with him on September 21, 1998. It describes his reaction to the Israeli Qana massacre.
When I last saw bin Laden, he was still obsessed with the Israeli massacre of 107 Lebanese refugees sheltering at the UN camp at Qana in April 1996. Israel claimed it was a 'mistake,' the UN conceded otherwise and President Clinton called it only a 'tragedy'--as if it was a natural disaster. It was, said bin Laden, an act of 'international terrorism.' There must be justice, he said, and trials for the Israeli perpetrators. Clinton used almost exactly the same words about bin Laden and his supporters in August. But the deaf, as usual, were talking to the deaf."(24)
Most Americans will never see any such accounts like the one by Robert Fisk about Qana. The Israelis tight grip on the American press and the American government has successfully suppressed much of the ongoing story of Israeli terrorism against Palestinians. I will now show that they have also been able to cover up murderous Israeli acts of war and terrorism against the United States of America.
Israeli terrorism against America
In 1954, the Israeli government launched a secret operation of terror against the United States called Operation Suzannah. It plotted to murder Americans and blow up American installations in Egypt. Their plan was to leave false evidence that the Egyptians did it, so as to make America go to war against Egypt on the side of Israel. Jewish agents succeeded in blowing up some post offices and American libraries in Cairo and Alexandria. On the way to blow up an American movie house, the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Theater, an Israeli’s agent’s bomb went off prematurely. Thankfully, for both Egypt and for America, the plot was then exposed and stopped in its early stages.
Because of the capture of the Israeli agents, the world learned of this Israeli treachery and the Israeli Foreign Minister, Pinhas Lavon, was later forced to resign. The whole episode became known as the Lavon Affair. Today, the Jewish-dominated American media and publishing establishment deftly cover up this Israeli treachery against us. Most Americans know nothing about it. For instance, only a slight mention of the Lavon Affair is found in the popular Encarta Encyclopedia. It is in an article about Ben Gurion authored by the pro-Zionist, Bernard Reich. By the way, the article’s author illustrates a typical media pattern. When Americans suppose they are reading unbiased Encyclopedia or news magazine accounts, they more often than not are reading distorted accounts written by ardent Jewish Zionists.
Ben-Gurion returned to politics in 1955 to replace Minister of Defense Pinhas Lavon—who resigned after a failed attempt to sabotage Egypt's relations with the West.(25)
Note how the article meekly says, “a failed attempt to sabotage Egypt’s relations with the West.” What does this mean? “Sabotaging relations“ sounds as though Israel might have just said a few nasty things about Egypt and America behind each other’s back. The intentional deception used in this article by its Jewish author is typical of the distortions that go on countless times in the mass media.
The line in Encarta should read:
“--who was forced to resign after Israel was caught committing terrorist bombings against the United States to treacherously incite America to war against Israel’s enemy.”
I am sure that ninety percent of those who read this have never heard of it. Some may think I am making this all up. Well, if you still might doubt that Israel has committed these terrorist acts against America in Egypt, here is a quote from a recent article appearing in the Jewish magazine Moment, written by Samuel Katz and meant for its small Jewish audience. It is more forward, yet still omits the provocative word terrorism, a word Israel uses when Palestinians blow up libraries and cinemas.
And the failures were as common as the spectacular successes. In the mid '50s, A'man (the Jewish Defense Agency) suffered a serious setback during the infamous "Operation Suzannah," when Israeli agents provoked Jews in Egypt to attack American and British targets and incite anti-Western sentiment. Many Jews were arrested, and some were executed. The bungled operation was a severe embarrassment for the government of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and his defense minister, Pinhas Lavon(26)
So, in the Lavon Affair we learned how our so-called “best friend in the Mideast,” Israel, rewards the United States for its unconditional monetary and military support: by committing terrorism against us! Think about the fact that most Americans have never even heard about this Israeli terrorist attack against us.
If the Egyptian government had been behind this terror against America, we would have rightly considered it an act of war and we would have attacked Egypt right back, just as we have done against Afghanistan. And the press; they would have clamored for such attacks just as they demanded attacks against Afghanistan. In fact, we attacked Afghanistan on far less grounds than we have for attacking Israel. No evidence exists that Afghanistan approved of or even knew anything about the attack on the World Trade Center; but in the Lavon Affair, the Israeli government committed a direct act of war against the United States. We, of course, did not bomb Tel Aviv in retaliation. We did not sever our diplomatic relations. In fact, we did not even cut off our billions of dollars in monetary and military aid!
Any American government official who would have given aid to the Japanese after the attack on Pearl Harbor would have been prosecuted as a traitor to the United States.
Let me be perfectly blunt. Those Americans in government who continued our support of Israel after it had committed terrorist acts against the people of the United States -- clearly committed treason against our country.
If America’s leaders, after Israel’s terrorist attack against us in the Lavon Affair, would simply have stopped their treasonous aid to Israel, there would have been no subsequent acts of terror against us such as the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.
Israel’s terrorist attack on the USS Liberty
In 1967, during the Six Day War, Israel again committed a grievous terrorist act against the United States of America. On June 8, Israel used unmarked fighters and torpedo boats to launch an hour and one-half attack on the American Navy ship the USS Liberty, costing 34 American lives and 171 wounded.(27) The Israelis first attacked the Liberty’s radio towers in an attempt to stop the Sixth Fleet from learning that the Israelis were the attackers. After unmarked Israeli fighters horrendously bombed and strafed the Liberty, Israel sent in torpedo boats to finish the job.
They even machine gunned the deployed life rafts in an effort to ensure that there would be no survivors (witnesses) who could expose them.
Only by the heroism and ingenuity of the captain and crew of the USS Liberty kept the Israeli plan from succeeding. They were able to keep the ship afloat as well as contact the fleet and let it know that Israel, rather than Egypt, that had attacked the ship. Knowing that its plan had been exposed, Israel withdrew and meekly claimed that their attack was a case of mistaken identity. They said that they mistook the USS Liberty for an Egyptian ship.
The United States Secretary of State at the time, Dean Rusk, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Thomas Moorer, both say the attack was no accident, that Israel deliberately attacked the USS Liberty. For instance, it was clear day with a stiff breeze and the Liberty sported both a huge American flag and large international identification numbers on her hull. Israeli jets buzzed the USS Liberty long before the attack, flying so close that the members of the Liberty crew could even see their hand waves as they passed. Just as in the Lavon Affair, Israel hoped to blame this act of war on their enemy, the Egyptians. This time, only the courage and resourcefulness of the Liberty’s crew prevented a further compounding of the travesty.
The Jewish-dominated American media expressed no outrage for the attack and supinely accepted the specious Israeli excuse for it. Even though our own Secretary of State and our own Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the Israeli attack was deliberate, the Jewish Lobby was even able to prevent a formal Congressional inquiry into the attack. In contrast, the USS Liberty’s sister ship, the USS Pueblo, was captured by North Korea the following year (1968) with the loss of only one life, yet within a year the U.S. Congress launched a formal inquiry into that attack. There still has been no formal inquiry into the attack on the USS Liberty. The Liberty’s commanding officer, Captain William McGonagle, was awarded America’s highest honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor, for his splendid courage during the Israeli attack. But, he was given the award in a quiet ceremony in the US Navy Yard, rather than the White House (as is customary), so as not to hurt the image of the very enemy who killed 34 of his comrades and wounded him and 174 more Americans on the Liberty!
How did the political leaders of the United States respond to this Israeli act of war against it? Did America bomb Tel Aviv as it did Kabul, Afghanistan? No, the Israeli-controlled American government along with the Jewish-controlled media committed a clear case of treason against America by covering up this vicious terrorist attack, and continues to send billions of American tax dollars to Israel in military and monetary aid.
Again, I invoke the example of Pearl Harbor. Any American government official who would have given aid or comfort to Japan after the attack in 1941 would have been prosecuted as a traitor to the United States. I charge that those American government officials who collaborate with the Jewish Lobby and media in continuing to support Israel after its attack on the USS Liberty – are traitors against the United States of America!
If, after Israel’s treacherous attack on the USS Liberty, we would have simply stopped treasonously supporting the Israeli terrorist state; we would surely not have suffered the terrorism of September 11, 2001.
Israel: A nation that spies on America and sells our secrets to our worst enemies
In the 1980s, Israel recruited an American Jew, Jonathan Pollard, to spy against the United States. After his apprehension, Israeli officials at first claimed he was a “rogue agent,” but later they admitted that Pollard was working for them from the beginning. Other than the Jewish spies, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who gave our atom bomb secrets to the Soviets, probably no spies have ever done more damage to our country than that which was done by this single Israeli spy: Jonathan Pollard.
Israel’s use of Pollard’s information not only destroyed our intelligence operations in the Mideast; it practically destroyed our intelligence apparatus in the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc.(28) Many of America’s most loyal and best agents in the Communist world were executed because Israel sold or bartered Pollard’s stolen information to the Soviets.(29) As the article below by Eric Margolis shows, our “wonderful friend and ally” Israel would not even allow the United States to debrief the Mossad agents who handled the Pollard spying so as to help determine the full extent of the damage done to the United States and the dangers posed to American agents overseas.
Some of the enormously sensitive secrets stolen by Pollard may have been either sold, or bartered, by Israel to the Soviet Union. A number of key CIA agents in the East Bloc were allegedly executed as a result of Pollard's spying. The KGB likely gained access to top-secret U.S. codes - either directly from Israel, or through spies in Israel's government. In short, Pollard's treachery caused one of the worst security disasters in modern U.S. history…
So, Israel, which receives billions of American aid, has treacherously spied on and harmed the very security of the United States. To further demonstrate their contempt for us, they even bartered the top secret information they had stolen from us – to America’s worst enemies. Even after Israel’s public relations apologies for the Pollard spying, it has continued to spy on us. The Los Angeles Times in 1997 reported that an American Jew named David A. Tenenbaum “admitted to divulging secrets to Israel.”(30) To quote the Los Angeles Times, “A civilian engineer working at an Army command facility near Detroit has admitted divulging classified military information to Israeli officials over the last 10 years.”
Even after Israel proved its willingness to spy on us and critically damage America’s intelligence operations, President Clinton appointed a dedicated, Zionist Jew to Chairman of the National Security Council, the highest intelligence position in the White House. Even the Israeli daily Maariv referred to Berger as a “warm Jew,” meaning that he is devoted to Israel first.(31) Appointing Berger as National Security Council chief after the Pollard Spy Case is pure insanity.
The fact that Israel could commit these outrages against the United States without suffering scathing media attacks or even the end of aid to Israel, shows their extreme power over us and the treason that reaches into the highest echelons of the American establishment. It is no wonder that Ariel Sharon could make the following statement to Simon Peres when he suggested that Israel might lose American aid if it did not pull back recent Israeli incursions. Sharon responded: “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” - Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001 (32) It is not only Jonathan Pollard who has committed treason against America. All those in the American government who would continue to monetarily and militarily support a foreign nation that spies on us and severely damages our intelligence operations (along with causing the deaths of American agents) have committed treason against the United States of America. In response to these ongoing acts of treachery against the United States, a truly patriotic American Government would have (at the very least) ended our support for Israel. Supporting a foreign nation after it willfully commits such acts of treachery against America is nothing less than treason.
The World Trade Center Attack
So, the record is clear. Israel is the worst terrorist rogue state on earth. Israel and its terrorist leaders such as Begin, Shamir and Sharon have committed a half-century of relentless ethnic cleansing, bombings, shootings, torture and murder against the Palestinian people. Israel has also committed numerous acts of treachery and terrorism against the United States of America as I have clearly shown in documenting the Lavon Affair, the Pollard Spy Scandal and the Attack on the USS Liberty.
Because of overwhelming Israeli power in media and government, traitors to the United States continue to support, with little fear of punishment, this rogue terrorist nation. In fact, these traitors to the United States supplied to Israel the very weapons it used to commit the terrorist attack on the Liberty! Through the efforts of Jewish and other traitors to the United States, the American government has embarked on a foreign policy that has repeatedly betrayed America’s true interests. Massive American military and monetary support has enabled Israel to continue its relentless terrorism against the Palestinians. American treasonous support of Israel’s terror has thus caused tremendous hatred against the United States, greatly hurt American economic and strategic interests, and ultimately spawned the terrorism now rising against us. The traitors who sold out America to Israel are as guilty of causing the loss of 5,000 American lives on September 11 as those who actually hijacked and crashed the planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Israel wants Arabic terrorism against Western nations Over the last two years, Israel has suffered the worst public relations disaster in its history. The election of mass murder Ariel Sharon as Prime Minister was the last straw for millions of decent minded people the world over. The UN Conference on Racism, which labeled Israel an “Apartheid state”, also signaled growing disapproval of Israel. Then, suddenly, the attack on the World Trade Center changed the world’s mood back to Israel’s favor. Was this just a fortunate coincidence for Israel?
As I have shown in this article, Israeli leaders have launched terrorist attacks on America disguised as Arab attacks, because they knew that any Arab terrorist attack on America advances their own aims. They are fully aware that the bigger the attack against America; the more carnage, the better it is for Israel. Ariel Sharon learned an important lesson in Beirut. Rather than to directly commit atrocities against America as it did in the Lavon Affair and the attack on the Liberty, it is much easier and safer for Israel to continue to commit atrocities, such as Sabra and Chatila against Arabic people, so as to drive their Islamic enemies to terrorism against the West. That’s precisely what occurred in the retaliatory bombing of the American Marine and French Paratrooper contingent in Beirut, and it is continued Israeli terror that has motivated the Trade Center Attacks.
What was Israel’s role in the WTC attack?
The Washington Times ran a story on September 10, 2001 about a 68-page study issued by the U.S. Army School for Advanced Military Studies (SAMS). The study, issued by the elite Army officer’s school, detailed the dangers of a possible U.S. Army occupational force in the Mideast. Here is article’s comment about the study’s view of the Israeli Mossad:
Of the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, the SAMS officers say: "Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act."
Ironically, within 24 hours of the story’s publication, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon was attacked. Could the “ruthless and cunning Mossad,” as the U.S. Army officers describe it, covertly have been behind the attack?
The Mossad is the most ruthless terrorist organization in the entire world. It is also one of the largest and most sophisticated intelligence organizations. No other nation comes even close to its scope and power in the Mideast region. It prides itself on infiltrating every sizable militant Palestinian and Arabic organization on earth. Knowing these facts, there can be little doubt the Mossad has deeply penetrated one of the oldest, largest and what is considered the most dangerous Arabic terrorist organization on earth; bin Laden’s al-Qaeda.
Furthermore, the FBI and the CIA have clearly stated that the attack on the WTC and Pentagon was a huge covert operation using an international network of at least a hundred terrorists, spanning three continents. Could Mossad agents in al-Qaida as well as the rest of Mossad’s vast network of thousands of infiltrators and informants, not have known about the most extensive and ambitious Arabic terrorist operation in history?
It is, of course, extremely difficult to prove the precise role of a secretive, foreign intelligence organization, such as the Mossad, in a terrorist act; they don’t brag about their exploits on the Internet. But, powerful evidence is mounting that Israelis had foreknowledge of the September 11th attack on America. And, if indeed they had foreknowledge of these murderous acts of terrorism – and then had the cold-blooded mentality not to warn the United States because they saw a horrendous massacre of thousands of Americans as good for Israel - it follows that they would have felt no restraint from actually instigating and covertly aiding this terrorist plan through their own agent provocateurs. Let’s look at the hard evidence indicating the Mossad had foreknowledge of the September 11 attack.
Evidence of Mossad Treachery in the WTC Attack
The day after the attack on the World Trade Center, the Jerusalem Post, the most respected and famous Israeli newspaper in the world, reported that 4000 Israelis were missing in the attack on the WTC. The Foreign Ministry compiled the number from Israeli relatives, who in the first few hours after the attack, contacted the Israeli Foreign Ministry and gave the names of Israeli friends and relatives who worked in the WTC or who had business scheduled in it or its adjacent structures. Even without seeing the article in the Jerusalem Post, logic alone would tell you that there would be many hundreds, if not thousands of Israelis in the World Trade Center at the time of the attacks. The international Jewish involvement in banking and finance is legendary. For instance, two of the richest firms in New York are Goldman-Sachs and the Solomon Brothers; and both firms have offices in the Twin Towers. Many executives in these firms regularly commute back and forth to Israel. New York is the center of world-wide Jewish financial power, and the World Trade Center is at its epicenter. One would naturally expect the Israeli death toll to be catastrophic. The Jerusalem Post certainly thought so on September 12, 2001. Here is the beginning of its article:
Thousands of Israelis missing near WTC, Pentagon The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem has so far received the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon at the time of the attack. (The headline and first sentence of the Jerusalem Post article) (33)
When George Bush made his speech before Congress, it turns out that he made a significant error other than saying that the WTC attackers did it because they “hated freedom.” Bush made a point to say that in addition to thousands of Americans, 130 Israelis died in the WTC. The implication was to say that Israel shared in our suffering, and that we and Israel are in this thing together. Upon hearing the number of 130 Israeli dead, it seemed suspiciously low to me. If 4000 Israelis were at the WTC and the WTC death toll was about 4500 (about 10 percent of the 45,000 people normally in the buildings at that time), the Israeli toll should have statistically been around 400 and not 130.
As a place for doing business and for employment, the world Trade Center was not a minimum wage or a MacDonald’s kind of place; it had highly paid, high tech and high level jobs and executive positions primarily in international finance, banking and stock trading. I asked myself how there could be only 130 Israelis dead, while there were an estimated 199 dead from Columbia and 428 from the Philippines? In previous articles I wrote on the September 11 terror, I did not allude to these suspicions, because I have always taken pride in not writing anything I could not firmly substantiate. But, while researching this article on Israeli terrorism against Palestine and America, I discovered the most shocking fact I have ever run across in all my years of research and writing. I discovered a simple fact that has enormous ramifications in regard to the September terror attack.
Searching through hundreds of articles trying to track down the true Israeli death toll, I found a New York Times piece that clarified the precise number of Israelis who died in the World Trade Center attack. It turned out that of the 130 Israelis President Bush claimed had died in the World Trade Center, 129 of them were still alive. Only one Israeli had actually died. I was incredulous. “Good God,” I said to myself, “only one Israeli!” Here is the pertinent excerpt from The NY Times:
But interviews with many consulate officials Friday suggested that the lists of people they were collecting varied widely in their usefulness. For example, the city had somehow received reports of many Israelis feared missing at the site, and President Bush in his address to the country on Thursday night mentioned that about 130 Israelis had died in the attacks.
But Friday, Alon Pinkas, Israel's consul general here, said that lists of the missing included reports from people who had called in because, for instance, relatives in New York had not returned their phone calls from Israel. There were, in fact, only three Israelis who had been confirmed as dead: two on the planes and another who had been visiting the towers on business and who was identified and buried. (New York Times, Sept. 22) (34)
The very low death toll of 130 suggested that a number of Israelis at the Trade Center had been warned before the attack. When I found out the truth that only one Israeli had died, there could be no doubt that there had been a prior warning for many Israelis. Having only one Israeli casualty among the 4500 dead at the WTC is simply a statistical impossibility. Even if the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the Jerusalem Post had grossly overestimated the number of Israelis in the World Trade Center by say 3,000 (400 percent), there still should have still been 1,000 Israelis there at the time of the attacks. Again, even if only a few hundred Israelis were present at the time of the attack, only one Israeli death occurring there is statistically absurd. Either September 11 had to be a big Jewish holiday, or a number of Israeli citizens had some advance warning of the impending attack.
Prior Warning to Israelis
The next thing I researched was to see if there were any confirmed warnings to Israelis prior to the attack. I quickly found an article in Newsbytes, a news service of the Washington Post, titled “Instant Messages To Israel Warned of WTC attack.”(35) The Israeli daily, Ha'aretz, also confirmed the prior warnings to Israel and confirmed that the FBI is investigating the warnings.(36) The articles detailed that an Israeli messaging firm, Odigo, with offices in both the World Trade Center and in Israel, received a number of warnings just two hours before the attack.
Instant Messages To Israel Warned Of WTC Attack
Officials at instant-messaging firm Odigo confirmed today that two employees received text messages warning of an attack on the World Trade Center two hours before terrorists crashed planes into the New York landmarks.
But Alex Diamandis, vice president of sales and marketing, confirmed that workers in Odigo's research and development and international sales office in Israel received a warning from another Odigo user approximately two hours prior to the first attack. (From the Washington Post’s Newsbytes)
So now we have powerful and convincing evidence from impeccable sources that Israel had foreknowledge of the attack. First, without a prior warning, there could not have been only a single Israeli victim at the World Trade Center. Secondly, there is clear confirmation that a company with offices in both Israel and the WTC received warnings immediately prior to the attack.
Who would have warned Israelis of the impending attack, if not Israel’s Mossad? The fact that Israel’s government had prior knowledge of the pending attack and had warned potential Israeli victims, but then deliberately let thousands of Americans die – makes the Israelis just as responsible for the carnage as the Arab attackers of the WTC.
What's good for Israel is bad for America
You can be sure that joy rose in the hearts of all Israeli terrorists as they witnessed the smoke plume from the twin towers. The FBI even arrested five Israelis on a rooftop nearby the twin towers, videotaping and cheering the entire event.(37) They knew that American and world resistance to Israel’s Supremacism and terrorism plummeted right along with the collapse of the towers of the World Trade Center. Perhaps the most telling statement was when a NY Times reporter questioned the former Israeli, Benjamin Netanyahu, a man every bit as radical as Ariel Sharon. Here are the words of the excited former Israeli Prime Minister:
Asked tonight what the attack meant for relations between the United States and Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, the former prime minister, replied, "It's very good." Then he edited himself: "Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy. (38)
The World Trade Center Attack was obviously very good for Israel; in fact, Israel is the only nation who benefited from it. Israel’s fifty-year record of unrelenting terrorism became completely overshadowed by the horror and the visual magnitude of this one spectacular terrorist attack. When the Jewish-dominated American media repeatedly showed a few, long-suffering Palestinians celebrating the attacks, Palestinians became unfairly painted as behind the Trade Center terror, even though every Palestinian organization condemned it, and not a single Palestinian was proven to be involved.
Of course, it was America that suffered most of all, with almost 5000 dead, a wrecked economy, and the worst restrictions against Constitutional liberties in American history. The Lavon Affair, the Attack on the Liberty, and the spying of Jonathon Pollard, and the murder of 5000 Americans on September 11th -- were all good for Israel, but terribly bad for the United States.
When will America come to finally understand that what is good for the terrorist state of Israel is destructive and even deadly for the United States of America?
When will we get the backbone to put a stop to the Israeli agents and American traitors who have orchestrated fifty years of support for Israeli terrorism and fifty years of treason against our own country? My life is dedicated to a free, secure and sovereign America, an America dedicated to our own people and our own interests; not the criminal purposes of a foreign, terrorist nation.
Whatever the cost to me personally, I will continue to pursue that path. I urge you to join with me. I beseech you not to purchase your security at the cost of your freedom and your honor. Courageously share the information of this article with other Americans and the rest of the world. Let us tell the truth about the worst terrorist nation on earth: Israel. In doing so, you will help save not only the Palestinian people, but the lives and freedom of the American people as well.
