Netanyahu failed to Mention How Israel Managed To Retain Its Nuclear Weapons Programme

“It is interesting — but not surprising — to note that in all the words written and uttered about the Kennedy assassination, Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, has never been mentioned. And yet a Mossad motive is obvious. On this question, as on almost all others, American reporters and commentators cannot bring themselves cast Israel in an unfavourable light — despite the obvious fact that Mossad complicity is as plausible as any of the other theories.”

Former Rep. Paul Findley (R-I11.), (

Even before JFK was inaugurated, the Israeli leadership was by no means enamoured with the prospect of having to deal with the son of an anti-Semite. Though JFK’s father Joseph P. Kennedy regarded some individual Jews with a degree of esteem, his opinion of Jews as a people was by his own admission extremely unfavourable. So apart from unjustly visiting the sins of the father on his son, Israeli leaders including Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, were also at loggerheads with JFK over several important issues. The first was JFK’s desire to prevent a nuclear arms race in the Middle East which on June 15, 1963 he reiterated in the last of a series of insistent letters to Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. It has since become apparent that there never was a “special relationship” between Israel and JFK who had no doubt whatsoever that while Israel was masquerading as a friend and ally of the U.S., it was simultaneously lying repeatedly about its nuclear weapons development program.

On realising that JFK would not budge on the issue, Ben-Gurion — who earnestly believed that possession of nuclear weapons was essential for Israel’s survival — then decided to join forces with Communist China. As both countries were bent on creating nuclear programs, they began secretly developing their own nuclear capability through intermediary Shaul Eisenberg, who was a partner of Mossad gun-runner and accountant Tibor Rosenbaum. In his book Seeds of Fire: China and the Story Behind the Attack on America (Dandelion Books, 2001), Gordon Thomas exposes how the Mossad and CSIS (Chinese secret service) had conspired on many occasions to not only steal American military secrets, but to also to doctor U.S. intelligence programs.

One of Israel’s most successful spies in the U.S. was Jonathan Jay Pollard, a former civilian intelligence analyst who in 1987 was convicted of spying for Israel and sentenced to life imprisonment. Pollard’s case was later linked to that of Ben-ami Kadish, another U.S. national who pleaded guilty to charges of passing classified information to Israel in the same period. Israel granted Pollard citizenship in 1995 while continuing until 1998 to publicly deny that he was an Israeli spy. There is constant lobbying for his release by Israeli activist groups and high-profile Israeli politicians including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who visited the convicted spy in prison in 2002 which was in the same year that Pollard renounced his U.S. citizenship.

JFK’s letter to Ben-Gurion was by no means friendly and stressed that as a professed ally, Israel should prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that as the Middle East’s Zionist enclave it was not developing nuclear weapons. The letter had been duly cabled to Tel Aviv but before it could be physically delivered by the U.S. ambassador, David Ben-Gurion abruptly resigned for undisclosed personal reasons.

In view of the fact that the Israelis routinely intercept communications and spy on the U.S., it may be safely assumed that having learnt of the letter’s content, Ben-Gurion decided not only to preempt the letter’s significance, but also to deprive JFK of an Israeli government with which to negotiate. JFK had at the time simply sought what Israel is now demanding of Iran: international inspections of its nuclear facilities. Had JFK succeeded Israel would not have at some time between 1962 and 1964 produced the first of what is now a vast nuclear arsenal of some 200-400 warheads?

During that same 1962-63 period Senator William J. Fulbright of Arkansas, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, convened hearings on the legal status of the American Zionist Council (AZC). The Committee uncovered evidence that the Jewish Agency, a predecessor to the state of Israel, operated a massive network of financial “conduits” which funnelled funds to U.S. Israel lobby groups. As a result, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) ordered the AZC to openly register and disclose all of its foreign funded lobbying activity in the United States. The attempt was subsequently thwarted first by the Israel lobby itself and then by the death of President Kennedy which lead to growing concerns regarding the impact of the ever-growing Zionist influence on U.S. policy making decisions. On April 15, 1973, Fulbright — who lost his Senate seat the following year — had no qualms about boldly announcing on CBS Face the Nation that :

“Israel controls the U.S. Senate. The Senate is subservient, much too much; we should be more concerned about U.S. interests rather than doing the bidding of Israel. The great majority of the Senate of the U.S. —somewhere around 80%— is completely in support of Israel; anything Israel wants; Israel gets. This has been demonstrated time and again, and this has made [foreign policy] difficult for our government.”

The probability of Mossad’s involvement in JFK’s assassination was in 1994 clearly substantiated by Michael Collins Piper who in his incisive book, Final Judgment: The Missing link in the JFK Assassination conspiracy (American Free Press, 2004) stated that:

“Israel’s Mossad was a primary (and critical) behind the scenes player in the conspiracy that ended the life of JFK. Through its own vast resources and through its international contacts in the intelligence community and in organised crime, Israel had the means, it had the opportunity, and it had the motive to play a major frontline role in the crime of the century – and it did.”

It was Piper’s assertion that Israel’s motive for the assassination was Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion’s outrage at JFK’s opposition to Israel becoming a nuclear power, and that in his final days as Prime Minister Ben-Gurion commanded the Mossad to become involved in a plot to kill America’s president. JFK’s assassination served the dual purpose of eliminating not only the threat to Israel’s nuclear ambitions, but also the need for the AZC to register as a foreign agent. So when Vice President Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) was sworn in as JFK’s successor, he wasted no time in increasing Israel’s arms budget and also turned a blind eye to its nuclear arms development program. A further blow to the integrity and independence of the U.S. Senate occurred in November 1963, when Nicholas Katzenbach replaced RFK as Attorney General with the result that the AZC evaded registration and calculatingly morphed into the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

A 1979 account of the House Select Committee on Assassinations reported that on November 25, 1963, only 3 days after the JFK assassination and before any formal federal investigation had been conducted, Nicholas Katzenbach, then deputy attorney general, had written a memo to presidential assistant Bill Moyers which lends credence to the existence of a government cover-up:

“The public must be satisfied that Oswald was the assassin; that he had no confederates who are still at large; and that evidence was such that he would have been convicted at trial . . . Speculation about Oswald's motivation ought to be cut off . . . Unfortunately the facts on Oswald seem about too pat — too obvious (Marxist, Cuba, Russian wife, etc.) . . . We need something to head off public speculation or Congressional hearings of the wrong sort.”

Coming from an attorney who was supposed to uphold the concept of innocence until proven otherwise, the memo represents a profound betrayal of the ethical foundations on which judicial systems have been built. The Committee's final report implied that Katzenbach, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, and others were the key actors behind the creation of the Warren Commission. The report also stated that Hoover — whose anathema for women was exceeded only by his dislike for Martin Luther King and intense hatred of the Kennedys — told staff members on November 24, 1963 that he and Katzenbach were anxious to have “something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin.”
