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.
I t 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 connection go?
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 revealed information.
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 told.
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 known.
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 story.
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 assassination conspiracy.
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 Permindex connection.
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.
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 written myself."
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 President Kennedy.
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.
