"Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?":
The Root & Branch Information Services is serializing the book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?, by Mr. Barry Chamish, with permission of the author, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin (November 4, 1995 -- November 4, 2006).

The Bible Says:

"How is the faithful city [Jerusalem] become a harlot. She that was full of justice, righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver is become dross, your wine is mixed with water. Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves; every one loves bribes, and follows after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.

Therefore, says the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I will ease Me of My adversaries, and avenge Me of My enemies; and I will turn My hand upon you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and will take away all your allow; and I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors as at the beginning; afterward you [Jerusalem] shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and they who return of her with righteousness.

But the destruction of the transgressors and the sinners shall be together, and they who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinths which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the garden that you have chosen. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and his work as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them".

Chapter Seven: "From the Mouth of the Shabak"

After the assassination, the head of the Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services), Carmi Gillon, his two officers in charge of Jewish "radicals" and their agent, Avishai Raviv, found themselves in deep, hot water. The post-assassination plan hit a snag; someone had leaked the truth about Raviv.

Gillon's first step was to appoint his own internal commission of "inquiry", but the public saw through the trick. This forced the government to appoint its own commission of "inquiry" headed by Chief Justice Shamgar who made a show of trying to get to the truth. He turned up the heat by sending letters to seven Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) officers, including Gillon and Jewish Activities Department head Khezi Kalo but pointedly not his [Kalo's] colleague, Eli Barak, who oversaw the Raviv operation. He [Shamgar] informed each [Shabak officer] that they were liable for criminal prosecution.

Some of their [Shabakofficers'] testimony leaked out to the public, though 30% remains buried in a vault for supposed "state-security" reasons. But from what little did escape from the mouths of the Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services), we get a hint of the mentality of the men at the top charged with protecting Yitzhak Rabin from Yigal Amir.

From Carmi Gillon's 1990 master's thesis:

There is a radicalization of the ideological law violations of the extreme right regarding the amount of activity and the force of this activity. Israeli society displays tolerance toward ideological lawbreakers of the extreme right and this grants, albeit belatedly, legitimacy to these activities.


Yediot Ahronot, November 10, 1995

A group of journalists met Carmi Gillon at the end of August. Among other things, he painted a portrait of a potential Jewish assassin of the Prime Minister. Without knowing it, he described Yigal Amir perfectly. He would be someone who didn't live in the territories, said the Shabak head, he will not be a joiner but an almost wise loner, who lives in Herzlea.


From Carmi Gillon's master's thesis:

The process of extremism in Israeli society is creating individuals who will ignore danger in pursuit of their goals.


Yediot Ahronot, November 20, 1995

Quotes from the head of the Shabak at the Shamgar Commission are teaching us his defense. He is calling Amir a "lone nut" who awoke one day and decided to murder the prime minister without anyone's help. He claims nuts like these are very hard to identify so the murder was not caused by an "intelligence breakdown".

This is a very serious defense. Although Amir has testified that he worked alone, other evidence suggests that three or four other people were in on the secret. Amir was not exactly anti-social. Gillon's "lone nut" theory does not make sense.

Yediot Ahronot, November 24, 1995

The head of the Shabak had no doubt who the assassin was. The moment he was informed of the close-range shooting, by long distance phone, his first reaction was, "It was a Jew".

Avraham Rotem, former head of Personal Security for the Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) asks himself a few questions:

Ma'ariv, November 10, 1995

Where was the head of the Shabak last Saturday night? Abroad. What was he doing there? Not known. Something urgent. What's more urgent than protecting the life of the prime minister? He didn't know someone was going to murder Rabin.

Aah, he didn't know? So why is it written in the papers that a few months ago he warned Rabin that someone from the extreme right was planning to assassinate him? And then he went to the heads of the political parties to give the same warning and request that they prevent incitement to murder? You can't tell the prime minister that someone is going to murder him and then go back to routine security procedures.

It looks like Gillon knew the assassination was coming sometime around early September when he warned Rabin, political party heads and journalists of an impending murder of the prime minister by an almost-wise loner who does not live in the territories.

Forty-eight hours before the assassination Gillon felt impelled to fly to Paris, despite pleas from subordinates not to leave before the rally, on unknown "urgent" business. When told of the shooting, he knew immediately that "a Jew" did it.
Unfortunately for him [Gillon], he stuck to the original plan and, taking the Warren Commission findings to heart, he defended himself by calling Amir a "lone nut". But like Oswald, Amir was neither a loner nor a nut.

Despite this flimsy defense, and without asking the hard questions about his uncannily accurate predictions or what he was doing in Paris, Shamgar let Gillon off with a wrist slap.

Agent Kalo

He is the most mysterious Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) figure surrounding the assassination, even his first name was never leaked into the media. It is known that Eli Barak, as head of the Jewish Department of the Shabak, ran Aviv, but no one has properly delineated Kalo's role. All we know is that he was Barak's immediate superior.

Ma'ariv, December 18, 1995

The Shamgar Commission has begun examining the contradictions between police testimony and that of Agent Kalo. They are asking how the Shabak reacted to information coming out of Bar-Ilan University and why the Shabak was ignorant of the Shabbat activities in Judea and Samaria organized by Yigal Amir with Avishai Raviv.


Yediot Ahronot, November 22, 1995

According to the head of the Department of Jewish Activities (Kalo) during six hours of testimony at the Shamgar Commission, the Shabak requested that Raviv supply them with an overview of Amir's activities three months before the assassination.

Raviv returned from his field duties and told them of Amir's intention to harm Arabs. Kalo testified, "Raviv didn't know Amir's real intentions and did not inform us of his [Amir's] plans to harm Jews, including the Prime Minister".

Ma'ariv, December 19, 1995

Among those most surprised by the warning letter from Shamgar was Kheshin, who believes the cause of Rabin's assassination was a security, not intelligence, breakdown. He [Kheshin] believes the warning to him [from Shamgar] was totally unjustified.

The head of the Jewish Activities Department [Barak] claims he knew nothing of Yigal Amir's threats to Rabin at Bar-Ilan University and received a report from his agent, Avishai Raviv, three months before the murder, which completely ignored those very threats -- threats which Raviv had heard on numerous occasions.

Instead, he [Kalo] was told Amir wanted to beat up Arabs. This was patently false. The frail Amir refused to participate in any of the many Arab-beating forays into Hebron led by Raviv until once, shortly before the assassination when he was fortuitously filmed in action.

Can anyone believe this story? If it is true, Raviv was deliberately hiding the truth about Amir from Kalo while other subordinates purposely kept the intelligence from Bar-Ilan University away from his [Kalo's] prying eyes.

Eli Barak

He was the head of The Non-Arab Anti-Subversives Unit of the Shabak, usually called the Jewish Department. Kalo was his superior officer, hinting that the Jewish Activities Department was separate from his [Kalo's] own. Because the thirty percent of the Shamgar Commission report hidden from the public includes information on the Shabak's departmental infrastructure, the exact nature of the chain of command is not known. And because Shamgar excluded Barak from testifying in open session for reasons known as coverup, not much of what he has to say has been released. But some testimony made it to the light of day.

Yediot Ahronot, November 20, 1995

According to the London newspaper, The Observer, high Israeli security officials claim that officers of the Shabak knew about Yigal Amir's intention to murder Yitzhak Rabin. The highest ranking officer who knew was Eli Barak, head of the Jewish Department, who didn't take Amir's "ridiculous plans" seriously. The newspaper doesn't explain why Barak didn't pass on Amir's threats to the head of the Shabak and that the answer to this will have to come out at the commission of inquiry.


Ma'ariv, November 27, 1995

Eli Barak, head of the department which deals with Jewish extremists, testified that Avishai Raviv didn't know that Yigal Amir intended to murder Yitzhak Rabin. He only reported that he was an activist at Bar-Ilan University. According to Barak, Amir decided on his own to murder Rabin and that no one could have stopped him.

The former head of the Mossad, Committee member Tzvi Zamir, asked Barak to explain why the Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) did not act on Shlomi Halevy's report to the police that a short, Yemenite member of Eyal [phoney "right wing" Shabak-created front organization headed by Shabak agent Avishair Raviv] was threatening Rabin. The committee stressed that, because Halevi was a soldier of the Intelligence Brigade, red lights should have lit up.

Barak's answer was never published. The little tidbit we have of Barak suggests that he coordinated testimony with Gillon and pushed the "lone nut" theory. He [Barak] also seems to have had a good talk with Kalo, but with a difference. While Kalo claimed to have been ignorant of Amir's campus radicalism, Raviv chose to inform Barak about it. However, both agree that agent Raviv did not know Amir had any plans to murder Rabin.

Avishai Raviv

We know that Avishai Raviv was a Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) agent from at least 1987, when the Dean of Tel Aviv University, Itamar Rabinovitch, tried to expel him for extremist activities. Prime Minister Shamir sent his aide, Yossi Achimeir, to intervene with Rabinovitch on Raviv's behalf. Thus, at the time of the assassination Raviv had been in the Shabak for at least eight years and probably had risen to high rank.

But finding quotes from him [Raviv] that are not staged extremism is tough. In November, 1996, the news magazine Kol Ha'Ir tracked him [Raviv] down to his secret place of work in a Tel Aviv institute for autistic children. Why he has to work at all is a mystery, but presumably autistic children will not recognize him. He [Raviv] did not say much to the reporter but admitted, "No one would believe what I know and cannot tell". For presumably if he did, he would disappear for good.

We also know that he [Raviv] lied at the trial of Haggai Amir [Yigal Amir's brother]. He [Raviv] told the court, "I never worked for or was associated with the Shabak".

Finally, we also know the court system is rigged because it accepted the perjured testimony [of Avishai Raviv] without protest.

Shabbat Shalom from Modi'in,

National Destruction, Defeat and Deportation?

Many of the biblical prophecies concerning the "Lost Ten Tribes" have been fulfilled, especially the birthright blessing of Joseph, the Anglo-Saxon's unparalleled power and prosperity, and the continuation of King David's dynasty, Israel in the isles...but now, unless our proud and stubborn people confess and forsake their physical and spiritual idolatry and immorality, the bitter prophecies of national destruction, defeat and deportation are upon us.

Chapter Six: "Dry Run"

Chapter Six: "Dry Run"

In early September, 1994, the folks responsible for the Rabin assassination sting conducted a wide ranging practice round. Seventeen Jews were arrested and held without charge for days. Later the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] and Police proudly proclaimed that they had busted the "Vengeance Underground", a "Jewish militia" which planned to stage "terror attacks" against Arab villages and against the bastion of the P.L.O. {Palestine Liberation Organization] in Jerusalem, Orient House.

The seventeen were charged with conspiracy to commit murder. There was an immediate problem with the conspiracy charge: None of the accused knew each other. The only thing they had in common was being framed by Reserve Brigadier General Yisrael Blumental of the I.D.F.'s [Israel Defense Forces'] Hebron Brigade and Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] agent, Yves Tibi.

Of the seventeen, the most publicized case was against Lieutenant Oren Edri, who was arrested while serving in Lebanon and charged with supplying explosives and training to the alleged underground. His real crime, like all the others, was associating with the Jews of Hebron. He was incarcerated for two months in a vermin-filled cell; when his parents visited him for the first time after his arrest, they were utterly horrified to see that his face was severely rat-bitten.

Other arrests were nearly as scandalous.

One example: Blumenthal [Reserve Brigadier General Yisrael Blumental of the I.D.F.'s Hebron Brigade] gave Uri Baruch blueprints for making a rifle silencer and Baruch was arrested the next day for planning to construct silencers for the "Underground". The only proof was Blumenthal's planted evidence.

Eventually all charges were dropped against Edri and Baruch as they were for another 13 "conspirators". The only members of the phony "Underground" who stood trial were two brothers, Yehoyada and Eitan Kahalani. On June 18, 1995, I met with the attorney who represented their appeal; he was kind enough to supply me with secret and guarded internal documents of the Police and Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] on condition that he be referred to as "The Attorney" and not by name.

The Attorney explains:

"In February, 1996, the Kahalani Brothers were sentenced to 12 years each in prison. This came as a complete shock to almost everyone in the legal field. I decided to try and cheer the boys up by offering to prepare an appeal pro bono. I became dismayed when it was rejected and drew some conclusions.

The first is that the case was directly connected to the Rabin assassination. The same people in charge of Avishai Raviv and the frame-up of Yigal Amir, also framed the Kahalani Brothers. Yves Tibi took his orders from Eli Barak, head of the Jewish Department of the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services]. And [Hezi] Kalo and [Carmi] Gillon were Barak's superiors".

What The Attorney did not mention was that Defense Minister General Yitzhak Rabin was the ultimate superior officer of the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] and must have been all too aware of the operation which led to the imprisonment of the Kahalani Brothers.

The story of one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in Israeli history begins with an egg smuggling scam. Because of corrupt marketing of produce in Israel, food products -- including eggs -- are very overpriced. [Shabak G.S.S./General Security Services agent, Yves] Tibi, who lived in the Hebron suburb of Kiryat Arba, went into business with the Kahalani Brothers smuggling eggs -- buying them from West Bank Arab producers, at a fraction of the cost of Israeli eggs, and smuggling them into Israel proper.

On September 2, 1994, the Brothers went scouting routes out of the West Bank in preparation for their new business. For that reason they were driving through obscure West Bank villages -- proof, contended the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services], that they were actually planning a massacre in one of them.

On their way back to Kiryat Arba, their truck mysteriously broke down and could not climb the hill into Jerusalem. The Brothers called Tibi, explained their dilemma, and asked to borrow his car. He agreed and everyone met in Jerusalem at 2:00 p.m. The Kahalani Brothers drove away in Tibi's car and at 2:13 passed through the nearby Arab village within Jerusalem called Batir.

At 2:15 p.m., they were stopped by a Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] jeep waiting in ambush. They were forced out of the car at gunpoint and the vehicle was searched. Two M-16 automatic rifles were found tightly wrapped in a blanket. A police squad car arrived shortly after and the brothers were arrested.

They were held in a Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] lockup without charge and without the right to see a lawyer for a week and a half. Ten days later, on September 12, 1994, they were finally charged with the attempted murder of an Arab named Ziad Shami who complained to the police that while riding a bicycle to work, the Brothers had attempted to shoot him, but the rifle misfired. The Shabak had searched for him [Shami] in Batir to "see if he was hurt or not".

A week later, Shami's cousin also complained to the police that "settlers had tried to shoot me". It was not until September 15, 1994, that the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] explained that it had rigged the Brothers' rifles to prevent them from shooting in order to catch the attempted murderers red-handed. If this sounds like an early rehearsal for the Rabin assassination, it probably was.

The literature of political assassinations has its rehearsal precedents. President Ford was shot at first by Squeaky Fromme for ecological reasons and within days by Sarah Moore on a similar pretext. John Lennon was murdered a month before the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan in 1982. Lennon's murderer, Mark David Chapman, explained that he was Holden Caulfield of Catcher in the Rye and the public accepted this unbelievable excuse for Lennon's murder. The dry run successful, Reagan's attempted assassin claimed he was trying to impress actress Jodie Foster and the public bought it, as expected.

Rabin's assassins were trying out sting operations to see if patsies could be charged without cause and imprisoned without a major public outcry. With the help of the Police and Courts, the system worked. Most of the Israeli public were gullible and apathetic enough to ignore the sting and all its implications for their civil rights.

I asked The Attorney if the plot did not backfire in the case of the rat-bitten Lieutenant Edri.

"Was anyone in the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] charged with the wrongful arrest of Edri?" he asked in return. "They got away with it and learned that the Israeli public would not protest even the atrocities an innocent soldier was subjected to. The Shabak was confident it could get away with any sting".

And with good reason, if they managed to get the Kahalani Brothers imprisoned against all the rules of jurisprudence. The Attorney showed me some sensitive documents. The first was from the Police ballistics expert Bernard Shechter, who examined the alleged rifles and ammunition of the Kahalani Brothers just as, a year later, he would examine the weapons and ammunition of the Amir brothers.

The date on Shechter's report is September 1, 1994, one day before the rifles were found in Tibi's car while driven by the Brothers. Shechter reports that he fired the rifles and they were in good working order. Allow me to stress the obvious. The incriminating M-16s were in the hands of the police on September 1; how did the Kahalani Brothers get them the very next day? There can be little doubt: The answer is, the rifles were planted.

Next, The Attorney showed me a memo dated September, 2, 1994, marked "secret", from the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] to the Police. The Police wanted the rifles turned over to them immediately for examination. The Shabak refused, citing unnamed "security" considerations.

The Attorney next showed me a report from Bernard Shechter, dated September 29, 1994. Finally, after 27 days, the Police tested the weapons and found them to be defective. Needless to say, just like the case of Yigal Amir's alleged bullets which were unaccounted for before the Police tested them, the chain of evidence regarding the Kahalani Brothers' rifles was completely broken.

But that did not bother the judges. Again, as was the case during Yigal Amir's trial, The Attorney explains, "The Court said it was not interested in who gave the Brothers the weapons, just who pulled the trigger".

There was another problem with the State's case -- initially there were no fingerprints on the rifles. The Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] explained that was because the Brothers wiped them clean. Thus, the Shabak had the Kahalani Brothers attempting to shoot an Arab, wiping the weapons clean of fingerprints and then tightly wrapping them in a blanket before being apprehended less than two minutes later.

The scenario did not stand the test of probability, so the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] came up with a new version. Yes, there actually were fingerprints on the weapon -- but not of the Kahalani Brothers. Somehow they had wiped out their prints and left other people's intact. The Police would get to the bottom of this: They tested all the prints of the arrested "Underground" members.

The Attorney showed me the police document. All "Underground" "members'" prints were examined except those of the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] snitch who most likely placed the rifles in his own car, Yves Tibi.

Shocking? It is just the veritable tip of the iceberg. Here are some of the inconsistencies listed by The Attorney in his appeal to the court:

1. Why did the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] have to go looking for a victim? No one complained against the Brothers until ten days later when the Shabak went looking for a complainant, "To make certain he was not hurt". Why, asked The Attorney, "should the Shabak think he was hurt if they rigged the rifles so they would not fire?" The first thing the Shabak officers claimed they told Shami was, "Do not worry. We are here to protect you from the settlers".

2. Shami had been previously arrested by the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] on numerous occasions for violent activity and had been imprisoned by them twice. They were well known to each other. Shami would have needed little convincing to give false testimony if he thought he was helping to put away "settlers". Shami claimed first that one of the Brothers pulled the trigger of the rifle, he heard a "tik" sound and saw the cartridge fall to the ground.

The story was patently absurd since a cartridge minus the bullet will not be expelled, if the trigger is pulled, without firing, so he changed his story. In his second statement to the Police, Shami claimed one Brother fired from a bending position behind the car and he could not hear the "tik" and did not see a bullet fall.

3. In his first police statement, Shami said he could identify the Brothers. In his second, he was tripped up by the interrogator who asked which one [of the Brothers] wore the glasses. After he answered, Shami was told that neither wore glasses. He then admitted that he could not identify the suspects.

Neither could the two Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] agents who awaited them at the ambush. So, the Police decided to sidestep the problem by not putting the Brothers in a lineup. In Court, the Police investigator explained that arranging a lineup was "logistically difficult". As was the simple task of interrogating the subjects. The Police actually disagreed in court about which officer interrogated which Brother.

4. When asked why it took ten days to make a police complaint against his attempted murder, Shami told the court, "I took it as an everyday incident". Now, even in the politically charged atmosphere of Israel, being shot at point blank is not an everyday incident. So, someone decided to beef up Shami's case by bringing in an employer of his who testified that the next day, Shami had told him what happened. But the defense had produced Shami's work card which proved he had gone to work on the 2nd, just after the alleged murder attempt. Why did he not tell his employer about the incident that day? The employer then changed his story. Now Shami did tell him the same day.

5. Why did Shami's cousin complain to the Police on September 9 that two "settlers" pulled a gun on him? The Kahalani Brothers were already locked up, so it was not them who did it. Was the little village of Batir targeted by "settlers" who
were "terrorizing" the citizenry with failed "murder" attempts? Did the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] or Police follow up on the complaint or was it a simple, perverse attempt by a family member to save Shami from perjury charges?

6. Shami reported that he had left his bicycle on the spot and run away. The two Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] ambushers reported that the bicycle was gone and that Shami must have rode off on it. To explain away this problem, Shami insisted that as he was running away, he flagged down a Peugeot van driven by a friend, returned to the crime scene and picked up his bicycle. The Shabak ambushers had to have seen the Peugeot van if it existed. And Shami could not name the friend who drove the van, so he again altered his story to the Police. This time the Peugeot was driven by a stranger.

7. Shami insisted that one of his assailants held a rifle to him. The Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] ambushers admitted they never saw anyone actually holding a rifle.

8. The policemen in the squad car accompanying the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] jeep at the ambush somehow did not witness the arrest of the Brothers. The squad car followed the jeep but the view was hampered by the "dust kicked up by the jeep". By the time the dust settled, the policemen saw the brothers held on the ground at gunpoint, the rifles in the blanket beside them. The dust, then, took at least two minutes to settle.

9. Shami told the Police that the first thing the Kahalani Brothers asked him was, "What's the time?" When asked in Court the first thing they [the Brothers] asked, he [Shamsi] replied, [they asked] "Do you have any money?"

10. Police Warrant Officer Zeiger testified that a bullet clip was pulled out of the Brothers' backpack at the time of the arrest. Unfortunately for Zeiger, no fingerprints of the Brothers were found on the clip. Further, the Police log of
September 2, 1994, reports that the clip was found in the defendants' home. In short, officer Zeiger was caught lying. But then, who wasn't?

The verdict of this case was to be read on November 6, 1995, but it was delayed until November 15 because of the murder of Rabin on November 4. On November 15, the Court found the Kahalani Brothers guilty of attempted murder.

"That verdict", says The Attorney, "was directly related to the assassination. If the Kahalani Brothers sting operation did not result in a conviction, people might have started asking questions about Yigal Amir. I asked associates in the Shabak [G.S.S./General Security Services] how the Brothers could have been convicted in the face of such an abundance of obviously doctored evidence. They told me there was just one possible answer: At the highest levels of the Shabak, there was a policy to delegitimize the settlers in order to justify their forced removal at some stage of the 'peace' process".

The opponents of the secret and deceitful "peace" process were thus to be turned into savage murderers. And if they were not so in reality, then murderers would have to be manufactured. It did not matter how much injustice it took, so long as the opponents of the "peace" process were viewed as barbarians by as much of the voting public as possible.

With this strategy in mind, Rabin was supposedly assassinated by a right-wing, Sephardic Jew who sympathized with the "settler" movement. The day after [Rabin's assassination on November 4, 1995], the roundup of hundreds of Jewish opponents of "peace" began and barely anyone complained. Within several weeks, the Israeli army pulled out of six West Bank regions without so much as one protest sign blocking the way.

In February, 1996, the Kahalani Brothers were supposed to appear for sentencing. Only one, Eitan, arrived. Yehodaya was not capable of hearing his twelve-year sentence.

A few weeks earlier, Yehodaya was transferred to another cell block. He was talking to his mother on the phone when an iron pipe smashed down on his skull, crushing it. He went into a deep coma from which it appeared, at first, he might never escape.

Yehodaya's last words to his mother were, "They put me in here with murderers".

My Untimely Demise? Not Quite

My Untimely Demise? Not Quite
by Nathan Tabor

I’m beginning to understand what Samuel Clemens, aka, Mark Twain must have felt like when he somberly pronounced to an astonished reporter who thought the writer had passed away, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated!”

I’ve been somewhat amiss in the last few weeks in posting my observations here about the political world and life in general, even more so of a concern since the recent congressional elections have rearranged the variables of where our country might be heading. I do want to thank all of you who e-mailed me, asking if things were well.

They are. As a matter of fact, things are great! But before I explain why, let’s knock-down some speculation that has been floating about concerning my “demise”:

* I have not been advising Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s “The View,” on how to handle her newest co-host. I did suggest, however, that she accessorize her fashionable attire with something practical. Maybe a baseball bat.
* I wasn’t conferring with Speaker Pelosi and her choice for House Majority Leader. She blew that first exercise of Democratic Party leadership all by herself.
* That was not me passing out pictures in midtown Manhattan of a costumed Rudy Giuliani dressed in something other than a business suit.
* Instead, and allowing me to switch gears for a bit of seriousness, I am in the middle of a promotional tour for my newest book, The Beast on the East River: The UN Threat to America's Sovereignty and Security (Publisher Nelson Current, ISBN 1595550534, Hardcover, $24.99).

Along the way, I was interviewed on the 700 Club about the book and its subject, the United Nations. I’m also happy to find that book reviewers have picked up on the distinction between The Beast on the East River and other books of this genre, a distinction that I feel is important in reaching a receptive audience.

As Henry Mark Holzer, Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn Law School notes, the book pulls away from the all too often “…propagandistic diatribes against the UN that have been self-defeating because of their strident tone, frequent factual inaccuracies, and lack of clear focus.” Instead, the book “…provides a measured intellectual argument against allowing the corrupt collectivist internationalists of the UN, and its many metastasized affiliates, to undermine and eventually steal one of America’s most precious possessions: its sovereignty.”

Please stop by the book’s website here for more information, reviews (including one from Senator Jesse Helms), and a link for purchasing.

As I mentioned above, things are going great for me. But it’s been your support, and hopefully your continued support, which has given me this opportunity to present a revealing look at an organization that dwells in the safety of our borders while it uses that safety to subvert our very existence as a free people.

The Plain Truth About Herbert W. Armstrong and the Worldwide Church of God

I was a baptized member of the Worldwide Church of God when Herbert W. Armstrong was alive. Since his death (January 16, 1986) there has been a monstrous betrayal of the brethren by Protestant wolves who were among us, resulting in those faithful to the truth of the Bible (over traditional error) fleeing that present corrupt organization of deceived and deceiving men (or "disfellowshipped" or "marked") to new congregations and organizations that reflect and teach our biblical views.

There has been, as with every group or organization that undergoes serious changes in structure or administration, strong disagreements on how best to continue with what we are convicted is the plain truth of the Bible, but all of us basically agree on our foundational doctrines.

For those sincerely interested in the plain truth about Herbert W. Armstrong and the former Worldwide Church of God and some differences between the various branches of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God and their leaders:

Restore Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount

The Wakf, the militant Muslim authority that oversees Jerusalem's Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site and Islam's alleged third holiest site (following Mecca and Medina) continue to show blatant disregard for Jewish, Christian and biblical history and non-Muslim sensitivities.

Matti Friedman's AP article - "At Temple Mount Holy Site, What Is Treasure?" - exposes how the Wakf engaged in unsupervised and illegal gouging of the Temple Mount (the holy site of both Solomon's Temple and Zerubbabel Temple enlarged by Herod that Jesus and the apostles worshipped in), removing tons of its historically rich soil and callously dumping it in the nearby Kidron Valley (that I've walked through many times, climbing the Mount of Olives). Such atrocious acts reveal a serious lack of proper respect for archaeology and other religions and serve as an indictment against the Wakf and the Israeli government for looking the other way.

However, this serious breach of religious respect and tolerance for non-Muslims is nothing new, as a Muslim mob overran the biblical patriarch Joseph's Tomb, site of a synagogue, burnt the Torah scrolls and murdered the rabbi who supervised the site, as well as a Druse officer trying to protect it, and utterly trashed the holy place. And who can forget the Muslim terrorists holed up in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, using the baptismal font as a latrine and abusing the New Testaments there? Not to mention the daily religious discrimination upon the Temple Mount where they illegally forbid Christians and Jews from praying or reading the Bible.

These are the concrete actions of the leaders of the "Palestinian" community, documented actions that are in stark contrast to the virtues they profess to the Western media about religious tolerance and freedom of access to religious sites within "Palestine."

It's past time the Israeli government act responsibly and change the deplorable status quo upon the Temple Mount, and restore Judaism's holiest site as the Temple Mount, hosting a "House of Prayer for all peoples" as envisioned by the Prophets.

Sacrifice world peace?

Herr Clinton was dead wrong to support the German-Jesuit expansion into Serbia, helping to create Germany's Fourth Reich.

Germany is increasingly taking off its mask and what the whole world is about to see isn't going to be pretty.

President Bush is dead wrong to think the terrorist leopard of Fatah (or Hamas or PLO) can change its spots and Shimon Peres has pimped a lying peace process that has buried many Israelis and Ehud Olmert plays with German fire while the Vatican waits in the wings.

These are our leaders? The blind leading the blind...or maybe they get paid to play stupid and act ignorant or endanger us all and sacrifice world peace?

Christmas is a pagan holiday in Christian drag!

Merry mass of Christ? No thank you. God rejects it and those who are becoming like Father, like Son, do too. Instead of fooling ourselves, being dishonest, stuck in the muck of traditional garbage that stinks to High Heaven, we expose it for what it is: Christmas is a pagan holiday dressed in Christian drag. This is how God blesses us - He offers us the opportunity to be set free from such religious lies. Will you FORSAKE BABYLON or suffer the plagues? Do you love God's truth more than tradition? How we respond is very revealing to God and will help determine the future of our nations.

Isaiah 58

1 “Cry aloud, spare not;
Lift up your voice like a trumpet;
Tell My people their transgression,
And the house of Jacob their sins.
2 Yet they seek Me daily,
And delight to know My ways,
As a nation that did righteousness,
And did not forsake the ordinance of their God.
They ask of Me the ordinances of justice;
They take delight in approaching God.

Gay rights, YES; Jewish rights, NO!

Gay rights, YES; Jewish rights, NO! [A Voice from Hebron]
By Gary Cooperberg

The alleged “high court of Justice” in Israel has demonstrated clearly that it neither enforces justice, nor does it possess genuine esteem for either democratic nor Jewish values. Few people know that Israeli Law permits Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. They are prevented from doing so only by an “escape clause” which states that should the police determine that as a result of Jewish prayer the Arabs are likely to riot, and thus create a situation of danger, the police have the right to prevent Jews from praying there. The police neither wish to expose worshipers to danger, nor are they willing to invest the force necessary to protect them while exercising their legal rights, so they simply deny them those rights. The Arabs have taken note of this “escape clause” and are only too happy to provide the riots which enable Jewish police to deny Jews the right to pray on their holiest site. As such it has become an axiomatic fact that Jews are not permitted to pray there!

This same “high court of Justice”, in total disregard to the sensitivities of Jews, issued a permit for homosexuals to parade their brand of lifestyle in the streets of Jerusalem. After all the legal protests fell on deaf ears, a large number of hereidi Jews decided to take a lesson from the court’s reaction to Arab “demonstrations”. Clearly if the court permits Arab rioters to prevent Jews from exercising their legal right to pray; it would seem logical to assume that it would (democratically) follow that it would permit Jewish rioters to prevent queers from exercising their legal right to parade their brand of immorality in the streets of Jerusalem.

Strangely enough this logical conclusion did not apply. The same court which would not suffer the police to muster the troops needed to protect Jews from Arab rioters, had no trouble mandating the police to use whatever forces they needed to enable the gays to parade their immorality in the streets of the holy city.

Perhaps there is a brilliant lawyer somewhere in Israel who can at least use this obvious dual standard to demand that the police permit Jews the right to exercise their legal right to pray on the Temple Mount. It really wouldn’t take a genius to present the case, nor would it take a judge with the wisdom of Solomon to determine what to do. All it would take is a court which possesses honesty, courage and a genuine sense of justice. Thus there is little hope for a change under the present system.


Project Shofar is dedicated to spreading these truths wherever it is possible to do so. It is sounding the alarm, to Jew and Gentile alike, to open our eyes to the G-dly process that is presently underway, and work to support it. We dare not stand idly on the sidelines.

The Gathering Storm

The Gathering Storm
By Naomi Ragen

Some of you have commented that I'm sending out much less
material of late. This is not your imagination. As I sit
in my little study in Jerusalem, overlooking the rolling
hills where David once fought Goliath, I feel overwhelmed by
a sense of helplessness as day after day the news gets worse
and worse. There is a line from I, Claudius, the
mini-series on ancient Rome based on Robert Graves wonderful
book that keeps going through my head. It is spoken by
Claudius, the reluctant emperor who wishes to bring back
the Republic and end the corrupt monarchy. He says: "Let all
the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out." What Claudius
means, is let the horrors brought about by perversions and
lies and corruption come to fruition so that people will
clearly see what a state their world is in, and work for

We are definitely in the mud. Israeli leadership is the
most incompetent and corrupt in her history. Everyone from
our Prime Minister to our President is under investigation
from everything from bribe-taking to rape. After all the
bitter lessons of the fake Oslo Accords, that had our
children dying in the streets, we have learned nothing, as
Olmert goes once again to the Americans with yet another
deadly plan to give our enemies more land, and with it, more
opportunity, to kill us.

It's not that Israelis don't know what is going on. They
do. But people are overwhelmed by the sheer pace of events
that unfold with frightening speed from month to month.
Still reeling from the rocket attacks on the North, we must
deal with daily rocket attacks on our South and the huge
weapons influx from the Philadelphi Corridor, once closely
guarded by the IDF, which is now open to endless weapons
imports from Egypt, thanks to a decision made by people like
Mofaz and Halutz to withdraw. Every day, some other suicide
bomber is apprehended. You don't hear about it, because we
don't die, but that doesn't mean our enemies have stopped
trying to kill us.

Some people - the reserve officers whose lives were risked
in the last debacle in Lebanon- have had the gumption to
rally to bring down the corrupt government, but most of us
are mired in confusion and simple fatigue. We get
sidetracked by foolishness, like the decision to turn
Jerusalem into a world-wide venue for gay rights activism,
an idea that backfired, exposing fanaticism and hatred on
all sides. No, I didn't think the parade was a good idea,
but I was equally appalled by the violence and destruction
wreaked on Jerusalem by the parade's opponents. I also
found the activism against gay rights by the Chief Rabbinate
to be the height of hypocrisy. So concerned are they with
Jewish law and the holiness of the Jewish people that Chief
Rabbi Amar (whose own family was arrested not long ago for
assault and battery on his daughter's suitor) cancelled the
much anticipated Agunah Conference. The Conference would
have brought together Orthodox rabbis from all over the
world in a historic effort to come up with halachic
solutions to Jewish laws that encourage the blackmail and
extortion of Jewish women seeking a divorce, laws which
have turned the Jewish marriage ceremony into a life
sentence with no possibility of parole.

And while we focus all our time and energy on these
ridiculous little tempests in teapots, Iran goes on building
her atom bomb unimpeded, a bomb with our name on it. Olmert
smiles at us from the front page of newspapers as he shakes
the hand of a smiling lame duck president, confident that
the U.S. is going to stop Iran and save us. His own sons
already live in America, so I guess he isn't very worried.
But mine live here in Israel, and I am. The world seems
mired in the same kind of lethargy and Jew-hatred which
preceded the Holocaust. Open any news channel, read any
newspaper, and the story line continues to be the poor
Palestinians, even though they continue to support the most
corrupt, violent and dysfunctional regime on earth. The
lies covering up Islamic extremism and its agenda worldwide
continue to be flaunted by trendy films, TV shows, Hollywood
"stars", once-respectable newspapers, public-funded radio
shows. The victory of the Democrats over the Republicans
while certainly in response to the Bush administration's
many failures, also no doubt shows a weakening of the
resolve to face the terrorist threat head-on, and a desire
to believe that there is another, easier way to secure our
freedoms, the way of negotiation, of easing the "grievances"
that the Muslims have against the West. As Brigitte
Gabriel writes in her amazing book,Because They Hate: "Their
grievance is our freedom of religion. Their grievance is our
democratic process.''

The Jews of America, who could do so much to strengthen
their sisters and brothers in Israel, continue to be
influenced by the anti-Israel propaganda. That a large
portion of funds raised for the Israeli victims of the war
in Lebanon by the UJC were earmarked for Israeli Arabs, who
openly sided with Nasrallah, is one symptom
The complete abandonment of the Jews of Gush Katif by
American Jewry, so eager to help Arabs, is another. The
government is supposedly helping them, you'll hear these
people say. It's their own fault for not signing on the
dotted line in time, for resisting government policy. The
fact that everyone, even those who did sign, remain
jobless, homeless and poverty-stricken because of their
crime of living in an area that defended Israel's south from
terrorist bombardment for many years, is unforgivable. It's
as if we Jews have adopted the "hate the settler" philosophy
of our enemies, and wish to join the forces that want them
punished for their crime of being Zionists, and patriots,
and self-sacrificing, and loyal.

Jonathan Pollard, the spy who did not harm anyone, or any
American interest, remains behind bars because he is a Jew
who helped Israel, having long ago paid for any wrong doing,
serving more time than spies who gave information to
America's worst enemies and caused irreparable damage to her
security. And Jews are afraid to stand up for him. That is
another sign.

The rockets continue to fall on Sderot and the Negev from
Gaza. Each time we try to stop it, the world press gathers
like jackals to condemn us.

Misinformation, outright propaganda abounds. I'm sick of it.
It's like emptying a flooded cruise liner with a teaspoon.
In his book The Gathering Storm, Churchill wrote: "How
easily the tragedy of the Second World War could have been
prevented: how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by
the weakness of the virtuous; how the structure and habits
of democratic States.... lack those elements of persistence
and conviction which can alone give security to humble
masses; how, even, in matters of self-preservation, no
policy is pursued for even ten or fifteen years at at time.
We shall see how the counsel of prudence and restraint may
become the prime agents of mortal danger; how the middle
course adopted from desires for safety and a quiet life may
be found to lead direct to the bull's-eye of disaster."
Perhaps we have passed the point of no return. Perhaps our
accumulated mistakes and crimes have created a downhill
momentum that can no longer be stopped by human effort, but
only Godly intervention, i.e. a miracle. Churchill wrote
that he gained comfort from the fact that when Nazi Germany
finally showed her true face, in a way that even the most
naive could not ignore, "my warnings over the last six years
had been so numerous, so detailed and were now so terribly
vindicated, that no one could gainsay me....I slept soundly
and had no need for cheering dreams. Facts are better than

I doubt that the storm that is gathering, threatening all we
love, and cherish and believe in, will allow us even that
scant comfort. I do not want to be "terribly vindicated." I
want to live out my life, and die in a good old age, my
children and grandchildren safe and healthy around me, free
citizens in the land of their forefathers. This is my
dream. May God help us.

For more articles by Naomi Ragen, please visit her Web page at:

Naomi Ragen's heartfelt piece was truly a prayerful sigh and cry before Heaven for all the abominations going on in Jerusalem and throughout the world, to which I say "Amen."

Our Great Creator God is taking note of this great difference in attitude and actions between peoples and promises to spare some from greater sufferings while others will be marked for death, not counted worthy to escape or receive divine protection:

Ezekiel 9:3-5

3 Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side; 4 and the LORD said to him, "Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it."
5 To the others He said in my hearing, "Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity."

Terrible times are just ahead of us, as it appears neither Joseph or Judah, the British-Israelites or Jews, will remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and turn back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and spare ourselves from the Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation, that will demand divine intervention after 3 1/2 years or we'll all be history.

Thankfully, the GOOD NEWS is that Two Witnesses in Jerusalem (in the spirit of Elijah) will announce to their captive audience, and assure the cities of Judah, that our God will come and save us, liberate Jerusalem from EU occupation and reign as King and teach Torah from the Temple. God will come and save us!

The Origin of Sunday Observance

The Origin of Sunday Observance

(This compilation of information regarding the Roman Catholic Cult's thinking to "change the times and the seasons" was put together by some Seventh Day Adventists. For the record, I don't accept everything they teach, but they are absolutely correct that the seventh day remains the Sabbath of the Lord and His People - not Sunday).

"It is certain, that Christ himself, his Apostles, and the Primitive Christians, for some good space of time did constantly observe the seventh-day Sabbath."—William Prynne, A Briefe Polemicall Dissertation, Concerning...the Lordsday-Sabbath , p. 33.

"Until the second century there is no concrete evidence of a Christian weekly Sunday celebration anywhere. The first specific references during that century come from Alexandria and Rome, places that also early rejected observance of the seventh-day Sabbath." Dr. Kenneth Strand, The Sabbath in Scripture and History , p. 330.

"It is certain that the ancient Sabbath did remain and was the Christians of the East Church, about three hundred years after our Saviour’s death."—Prof. E. Brerewood, A Learned Treatise of the Sabbath , p. 77.

"Down even to the fifth century the observance of the Jewish Sabbath was continued in the Christian church."—Lyman Coleman, Ancient Christianity Exemplified , chap. 26, sec. 2.

"Although almost all churches throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries on the sabbath of every week, yet the Christians of Alexandria and at Rome, on account of some ancient tradition, have ceased to do this."—Socrates Scholasticus (written about A.D. 440), quoted in Ecclesiastical History , Book 5, chapter 22.

"The Christian Church made no formal, but a gradual and almost unconscious, transference of the one day to the other."—F. W. Farrar, The Voice From Sinai , p. 167.

"Christianity and the higher forms of paganism tended to come nearer and nearer to each other as time went on.... They tended to merge into one another like streams which had been following converging courses."—J. H. Robinson, Introduction to the History of Western Europe. p. 31.

"The two opposed creeds moved in the same intellectual and moral sphere, and one could actually pass from one to the other without shock or interruption.... The religious and mystical spirit of the Orient had slowly overcome the whole social organism and had prepared all nations to unite in the bosom of a universal church."—Franz V. M. Cumont, Oriental Religions in Roman Paganism , reprint 1956, pp. 210, 211.

"Remains of the struggle are found in two institutions adopted from its rival by Christianity in the fourth century, the two Mithraic sacred days, December twenty-fifth, dies natalis solis , as the birthday of Jesus, and Sunday, `the venerable day of the Sun,’ as Constantine called it in his edict of 321."—Walter Woodburn Hyde, Paganism to Christianity in the Roman Empire , p. 60.

"The Church made a sacred day of Sunday...largely because it was the weekly festival of the sun; for it was a definite Christian policy to take over the pagan festivals endeared to the people by tradition, and to give them a Christian significance."—Arthur Weigall, The Paganism in Our Christianity , 1928, p.145.

"The church...took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday.... The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom.... And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday." Dr. William L. Gildea, The Catholic World , March, 1894.

"What began, however, as a pagan ordinance, ended as a Christian regulation; and a long series of imperial decrees, during the fourth, fifth, and sixth centuries, enjoined with increasing stringency abstinence from labour on Sunday."—Hutton Webster, Rest Days , p. 270.

"The Roman Church...reversed the Fourth Commandment by doing away with the Sabbath of God’s word, and instituting Sunday as a holiday." Nicolas Summerbell, History of the Christian Church , 3rd edition, 1873, p. 415.

"The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her Divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday."—The Catholic Mirror , September 23, 1893.

"The Sunday, as a day of the week set apart for the obligatory public worship of Almighty purely a creation of the Catholic Church. It is...not governed by the enactments of the Mosaic law. It is part and parcel of the system of the Catholic Church."—John Gilmary Shea, The American Catholic Quarterly Review , January, 1883.

"Q. Which is the Sabbath day?

A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.

Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday."—Peter Geiermann, The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957 ed.), p. 50.

"They will needs have the Church’s power to be very great, because it hath dispensed with a precept of the Decalogue."—The Augsburg Confession , 1530.

"The church has changed the Sabbath into the Lord’s day by its own authority, concerning which you have no Scripture."—Johann Eck, Handbook of Common Places Against the Lutherans , 1533.

"If you follow the Bible alone there can be no question that you are obliged to keep Saturday holy, since that is the day especially prescribed by Almighty God to be kept holy to the Lord. In keeping Sunday, non-Catholics are simply following the practise of the Catholic Church for 1800 years, a tradition, and not a Bible ordinance.... With the Catholics there is no difficulty about the matter. For, since we deny that the Bible is the sole rule of faith, we can fall back upon the constant practise and tradition of the Church."—Francis G. Lentz, The Question Box , 1900, p. 98, 99.

"Like two sacred rivers flowing from Paradise, the Bible and divine Tradition contain the Word of God, the precious gems of revealed truths. Though these two divine streams are in themselves, on account of their divine origin, of equal sacredness, and are both full of revealed truths, still, of the two, TRADITION is to us more clear and safe."—Joseph Fa di Bruno, Catholic Belief , p. 45.

"We have, therefore, the same authority for Purgatory as we have for Sunday."—Martin J. Scott, Things Catholics Are Asked About , 1927, p. 136.

"Protestantism, in discarding the authority of the Church, has no good reason for its Sunday theory, and ought, logically, to keep Saturday as the Sabbath."—John Gilmary Shea, The American Catholic Quarterly Review , January, 1883.

"You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we [Catholics] never sanctify."—James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers , 1917 ed., pp. 72, 73.

"Is it not strange that those who make the Bible their only teacher should inconsistently follow in this matter the tradition of the Church?"—Bertrand L. Conway, The Question Box Answers , 1910, p. 255.

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?"—Jesus, Matthew 15:3 .

"But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."—Jesus, Matthew 15:9 .

"No; it never was changed, nor could it be, unless creation was to be gone through again: for the reason assigned must be changed before the observance, or respect to the reason, can be changed!! It is all old wives’ fables to talk of the change of the sabbath from the seventh to the first day. If it be changed, it was that august personage changed it who changes times and laws ex officio—I think his name is DOCTOR ANTICHRIST."—Alexander Campbell, The Christian Baptist , Feb. 2, 1824, vol. 1, no. 7.

"We ought to obey God rather than men."—Peter, Acts 5:29.

"The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate."—Isaiah 24:5,6.

"Reason and common sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday or Catholicity and the keeping of Sunday. Compromise is impossible." Catholic Mirror, December 23, 1893.

WHO MURDERED YITZHAK RABIN? - Chapter 5: "How did They miss Amir at the Rally?"


Chapter Five: "How did They miss Amir at the Rally?"

copyright (c) 1998, 2006, by Mr. Barry Chamish

R&B Editor's Notes:

Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?: The Root & Branch Information Services is serializing the book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?, by Mr. Barry Chamish, with permission of the author, to commemorate the upcoming eleventh anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin (November 4, 1995 -- November 4, 2006).

The Bible Says:

"How is the faithful city [Jerusalem] become a harlot. She that was full of justice, righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver is become dross, your wine is mixed with water. Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves; every one loves bribes, and follows after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.

Therefore, says the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I will ease Me of My adversaries, and avenge Me of My enemies; and I will turn My hand upon you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and will take away all your allow; and I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors as at the beginning; afterward you [Jerusalem] shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and they who return of her with righteousness.

But the destruction of the transgressors and the sinners shall be together, and they who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinths which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the garden that you have chosen. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and his work as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them".

[Yeshayahu/Isaiah 1:21-31]

YERUSHALIYIM, Israelite Tribal Territories of Judah and Benjamin, Kingdom of David and Solomon, United Israelite Kingdom of Judah and Joseph, Seventeenth Day, Eighth Month ("Cheshvan"), 5767; Yom Revi'i (Fourth Day of the Week/"Wednes"-day, November 8, 2006), Root & Branch Information Services []:

Chapter Five: "How did They miss Amir at the Rally?"

One of the questions the media asked after the assassination is how the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] missed identifying Amir in the sterile area where he "shot" Rabin. The first answer given by the Shabak was that because of the thick crowd, it was impossible to pick out Amir.

The "amateur film" purportedly made by Ronnie Kempler put that lie to rest. Amir is shown alone standing by a potted plant for long minutes without another soul in sight for yards around him. The only people who are filmed
talking to him are two uniformed policemen.

Under normal circumstances, the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] would have prevented Amir from getting anywhere near the rally itself -- and had he somehow gained access to the sterile area, he would have been apprehended on the spot -- because the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] had lots of information that Amir was planning to assassinate Rabin.

Take the famous case of Shlomi Halevy, a reserve soldier in the I.D.F.'s Intelligence Brigade and a fellow student of Amir's at Bar-Ilan University. After being informed that Amir was talking about killing Rabin, he [Halevy] reported the information to his superior officer in the brigade. He [the superior officer] told Halevy to go to the police immediately.

Halevy told them that "A short Yemenite in Eyal was boasting that he was going to assassinate Rabin". The police took Halevy very seriously and transferred his report to the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] where it was not "discovered" until three days after Rabin's assassination.

The weekly newsmagazine Yerushalayim on September 22, 1996 managed to convince Halevy to give his first interview since the discovery of his report and the subsequent media fallout. The magazine noted:

Yerushaliyim, September 22, 1996

Halevy's and other reports of Amir's intentions which gathered dust in Shabak [Israel General Security Services] files have fueled numerous conspiracy theories...After the uproar, Halevy went into hiding.

"Shlomi Halevy, if you did the right thing why have you hidden from the public?"

Halevy: "The assassination is a sore point with the Shabak. They're big and I'm little. I don't know what they could do to me".

Halevy was the most publicized case because as a soldier in the Intelligence Brigade, the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] was absolutely required to take his evidence seriously as did the police. But Halevy was not the only informant.

Yediot Ahronot, November 12, 1995

A number of weeks before the Rabin assassination, the Shabak received information about the existence of Yigal Amir and his intention to murder Yitzhak Rabin.

Yediot Ahronot was informed that one of the Eyal activists arrested last week was interrogated for being a possible co-conspirator with Yigal Amir because the assassin's brother Haggai had mentioned him [the Eyal activist] in his [Haggai's] own interrogation. At the beginning of his interrogation, the suspect broke out into bitter tears and told a tale that was initially viewed with tongue in cheek by the interrogators.

Weeks before the murder, the suspect heard Amir speak his intentions and he was shocked. He was torn between informing the authorities and betraying his fellows, so he chose a middle route. He would give away Amir's intentions without naming him.

After some hesitation, he informed a police intelligence officer about Amir's plan in detail, stopping just short of identifying him or his address. He told where Amir studied and described him as a "Short, dark Yemenite with curly

The description was passed along the police communications network and classified as important. The information was also passed to the Shabak [Israel General Security Services], officers of which subsequently took a statement from the suspect. Because he was in a delicate position, neither the police or Shabak [Israel General Security Services] pressed him further.

While interrogated, the suspect named the police and Shabak [Israel General Security Services] officers and his story checked out. He was then released. Shabak [Israel General Security Services] officials confirmed that the man had previously given them a description of Amir and his plan to murder Rabin.


Ma'ariv, November 19, 1995

Hila Frank knew Amir well from her studies at Bar Ilan. After the assassination, she hired a lawyer and told him that she had heard Amir state his intention to murder Rabin well before the event. As a member of the campus Security Committee, she organized anti-government demonstrations.

Thus, she was torn between exposing Amir's intentions and the interests of the state. To overcome the dilemma, she passed on her information to Shlomi Halevy, a reserve soldier in the Intelligence Brigade who promised that it would be
given to the right people.


Yerushalayim, November 17, 1995

Why wasn't a drawing of Amir based on Halevy's description distributed to the Prime Minister's security staff? Why didn't they interrogate other Eyal activists to discover who the man threatening to kill the prime minister was?


Yediot Ahronot, November 10, 1995

A month and a half before the assassination, journalist Yaron Kenner pretended to be a sympathizer and spent two days at a study sabbath in Hebron organized by Yigal Amir.

"Who organized this event?" I asked. He pointed to Yigal Amir...He had invited 400 and over 540 arrived. This caused organizational havoc.

"When Amir spoke, people quieted down, testifying to some charisma. On the other hand, his soft tone and unimpressive stature wouldn't have convinced anyone to buy even a popsicle from him".


Ma'ariv, December 12, 1995

During his "Identity Weekends," hundreds of people heard Amir express his radical thoughts, amongst which were his biblical justifications for the murder of Rabin.


Yediot Ahronot, November 24, 1995

Yigal Amir turned into an object of attention for the Shabak beginning six months ago when he started organizing study weekends in Kiryat Arba and they requested a report on him. Raviv prepared the report.


Ma'ariv, November 24, 1995

A carful of Bar-Ilan students were driving from Tel Aviv when they heard the announcement of Rabin's shooting on the radio. They played a game, each thinking of five people who might have done it. Yigal Amir was on all their lists.

How could the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] have missed Yigal Amir at the rally unless they did so on purpose? Yigal Amir did not keep his intentions to assassinate Rabin a secret. He told many hundreds of people gathered at his study weekends and seems to have told everyone within hearing distance at Bar-Ilan University.

Besides the question of Amir's most un-murderer-like desire to let the world know his plans, we must ask why the Shabak [Israel General Security Services] didn't apprehend him. Yes, they knew about him. The proof is indisputable. Two people, one within Eyal, the other a soldier in the Intelligence Brigade told them. Their own agent Avishai Raviv heard his threats, along with hundreds of other people at the study weekends and reported them to his superiors.

So why didn't they arrest him well before the rally, outside the rally or within the sterile zone? Because wittingly or not, Yigal Amir was working for the Shabak [Israel General Security Services].

Israel's Betrayal of the Jews

After reading Germany's Betrayal of the Jews by Wolf Biermann, I felt blah, blah, blah. Didn't Hitler warn the European Jews? Didn't Jabotinsky warn the European Jews? The Jews today are in a position to determine their life or death, blessings or curses and needn't blame others for all their ills. There are problems and there are biblical solutions, as Meir Kahane courageously taught (Malachi 4:4).

What's a Jew still living in Germany for? Has he learned nothing from the Holocaust? Why not repent of the godless Communism (disproportionately Jewish, grieved to say) and become a religious Zionist and follow Judaism to the Jewish Homeland where Jews belong according to Moses and the Ramban?

As for "the 'stumbling blocks' [hand-sized brass plates set into the pavement in front of houses that are engraved with the name, date of birth and date of deportation of individuals who lived at the sites] that are mostly there to remember murdered Jews but there are a few for Sinti and Roma, communists, social-democrats and homosexuals," perpetuates the big lie the liberals preach that portrays homosexuals as "victims" when The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party proves otherwise. I heard co-author Kevin Abrams lecture about it in Jerusalem sponsored by the Root and Branch Association.

Israel's betrayal of the Jews would be a more appropriate speech for Wolf Biermann or some other brave soul. Where else but in Israel could thousands of Jews be forcibly removed from their homes and their property and businesses looted by Nazi-Muslims with covert world approval? Where else but in Israel could Jewish holy sites be utterly vandalized, destroyed and occupied by Nazi-Muslims like Joseph's Tomb? Where else but in Israel would Jews be violently forbidden to pray or read the Bible at a holy site, even Judaism's most holy site - the Temple Mount - with successive governments rewarding terrorist threats and punishing innocent Jews against both secular and religious law? Why the woeful neglect and abominable apathy of Jews and Israelis that enables such deplorable conditions to continue?

Meir Kahane, rabbi and former Israeli parliament member, used to say instead of decrying what the Gentiles didn't do to save the Jews, we should focus on what THE JEWS didn't do to save themselves! He highlighted the miserable failure of the American Jews especially. Ah, but it's easier to blame others, isn't it?

When will the Israelis clean house? Israelis voted for the defeatist Kadima - the same Kadima that didn't let them win the war in Lebanon. The same accursed Kadima that threatens to expel more Jews and continues to reward terrorism and pretends Israel has "peace partners" and that one group of terrorists is more "moderate" than the other when both despise Israel and seek its destruction and their murderous hatred is documented!

When will Israelis reopen the Rabin murder file and expose what is increasingly apparent to many: the Israeli oligarchy, undoubtedly under German-Jesuit orders, ordered the Shabak hit on Yitzhak Rabin? It's a known fact that Yigal Amir worked for Shabak, that Avishai Raviv, "Champagne," was a government agent provocateur and that Yitzhak Rabin entered his limousine unharmed.... Truly, Shimon Peres came to power over Rabin's dead body.

Yes, let Jews and Israelis examine Israel's betrayal of the Jews before it's too late and Jerusalem suffers under EU occupation.
