The Plain Truth October 1967

What about this strange festival? What have goblins, witches and ghosts to do with this feast of All Hallows Eve? And why the demoniacal masks and gaudy decorations?

by Gerhard O. Marx

EACH YEAR millions around the world observe the strangest of all festivals, Hallowe'en -- All Hallows Evening. Especially so in Great Britain, Scandinavia and the United States. Every autumn, young and old alike anticipate its revels. It's a night of frolicking fun and frivolous foolishness. All kinds of nonsense and superstitions are associated with this festival.

But Why?

On the eve of this night children dress in outrageous costumes and put on witch-like masks. Then they are turned loose to frighten or otherwise induce people into giving them food items and other gifts. Millions are familiar with the "trick-or-treat"
threat associated with Hallowe'en. Buildings are desecrated, windows broken and other fooleries are resorted to.

WHY do so many keep Hallowe'en? What useful purpose does such a celebration fulfill in this "enlightened" scientific twentieth century? What purpose did it ever serve? Is it merely a harmless celebration to amuse our children? It's about time we checked into this observance to see WHERE and WHEN it really originated and FOR WHAT PURPOSE it was established.

You may not have realized it, but the ancient pre-Christian Druids in Britain, the pagan Romans and Greeks, and even the Babylonians, among others, kept a Hallowe'en festival.

Not Christian

Yes, Hallowe'en long antedates Christianity! It was only later introduced into the professing Christian world -- centuries AFTER the death of the Apostles.

Notice! "The earliest Hallowe'en celebrations [in Britain] were held by the Druids in honour of Samhain, Lord of the Dead, whose festival fell on November 1" (see Halloween Through Twenty Centuries, by Ralph Linton, p. 4). "It is clearly a RELIC OF PAGAN TIMES"! (The Book of Days, Chambers, v. 2, p. 519.)

Further, "It was a Druidical belief that on the eve of this festival Saman, lord of death, called together the wicked spirits that within the past 12 months had been condemned to inhabit the bodies of animals" (Enc. Brit., 11th ed., v. 12, pp.857-8). Read what this November celebration was like! It was a pagan belief that on one night of the year the souls of the dead return to their original homes, there to be entertained with food. If food and shelter were not provided, these spirits, it was believed, would cast spells and cause havoc towards those failing to fulfill their requests. "It was the night for the universal walking about of all sorts of spirits, airies, and ghosts, all of whom had liberty on that night" (Highland superstitions, Alexander Macgregor, p. 44). Literal sacrifices were offered on this night to the spirits of the dead, when, so the belief went, they visited their earthly haunts and their friends.

There was a reason why November was chosen for that particular event. The Celts and other Northern people considered the beginning of November as their New Year.

This was the time when the leaves were falling and a general seasonal decay was taking place everywhere. Thus it was a fitting time, so they reasoned, for the commemoration of the dead. Since the Northern nations at that time began their day in the evening, the eve leading up to November 1st was the beginning of the festival.

According to the Roman calendar it was the evening October 31 -- hence, Hallowe'en -- the evening of All Hallows.

Observed Everywhere

Hallowe'en, or "All Souls Eve," was kept throughout the ancient pagan world. The observance was widespread. "There was a prevailing belief AMONG ALL NATIONS that at death the souls of good men were taken possession of by good spirits and carried to paradise; but the souls of wicked men were left to wander in the space between the earth and moon, or consigned to the unseen world. These wandering spirits were in the habit of HAUNTING THE LIVING ... BUT THERE WERE MEANS BY WHICH THESE GHOSTS MIGHT BE EXORCISED" (Folklore, James Napier, p. 11).

To exorcise these ghosts, that is, to free yourself from their supposed evil sway, you would have to set out food and provide shelter for them during the night. If they were satisfied with your offerings, it was believed they would leave you in peace. If not, they were believed to cast an evil spell on you. "In Wales it was
firmly believed that on All Hallows Eve the spirit of a departed person was to be seen at midnight on every crossroad and every stile" (Folklore and Folk-Stories of Wales,, Marie Trevelyan, p. 254).

In Cambodia people used to chant: "O all you our ancestors, who are departed, deign to come and eat what we have prepared for you, and to bless your posterity and to make it happy" (Notice sur le Cambodge, Paris 1875, E. Aymonièr, p. 59).

This sort of Hallowe'en festival was strenuously observed throughout the non-Christian world. Pagans would pray to their false gods to prevent "DEMONS" and "witches" from molesting them. Notice! "The Miatecs of Mexico believed that the
souls of the dead came back in the twelfth month of the year, WHICH CORRESPONDED TO OUR NOVEMBER. On this day of All Souls the houses were decked out to welcome the spirits. Jars of food and drink were set on a table in the principal room, and the family went out with the torches to meet the ghosts and invite them to enter. Then, returning to the house they knelt around the table, and with their eyes bent on the ground, prayed the souls to accept the offerings" (Adonis, Frazer, p. 244).

This, then, is the way the heathen world celebrated their Hallowe'en, their "All Souls Day". Although some aspects of the Hallowe'en festival varied with each country, the overall pattern and purpose remained the same.

Hallowe'en "Christianized"

But how did the professing Christian world come to accept and keep such a day? Here is what you, probably, haven't been told. In 607 A.D. the Roman Emperor Phocus defeated the Barbarians who were in control of Rome. The Pantheon in Rome, a pagan edifice which had been wrested from the barbarians, was given to pope Boniface IV. Originally, Emperor Hadrian built the Pantheon -- around 100 A.D. He dedicated it to the pagan goddess Cybele and to the other Roman deities. This temple became the central place in Rome where the pagans honored and commemorated their gods. With this splendid edifice now falling into the hands of professing Christians, the question was, What should be done with it?

The pagans had dedicated it to Cybele and all their gods. But the Roman bishop now CONSECRATED IT TO THE VIRGIN MARY AND ALL THE SAINTS of both sexes (see The Mysteries of All Nations, Grant, p. 120). Thus this pagan building became "holy." No more did the pagan Romans use this edifice to pray for their dead. It was now the professing Christians who employed the Pantheon in praying for their dead.

This re-dedication of the pagan temple to Mary and others occurred in 610 A.D. Now converted into a Christian shrine, an annual festival was instituted to commemorate the event. The day chosen was May 13.

This May 13 commemoration of the dead saints was known by the name of "All Saints Day." It continued to be held in May for over two centuries -- until 834 A.D. In that year the NAME and the DATE WERE CHANGED. Notice! "The time of celebration was altered to the FIRST OF NOVEMBER,and it was then called ALL HALLOW" -- from where we get the name Hallowe'en, ALL HALLOW merely meaning ALL HOLY, and the "een" is a contraction of evening (Folklore, James Napier, p. 177).

Thus in 834 A.D. the Church in the Middle Ages began tocelebrate Hallowe'en on the FIRST OF NOVEMBER for the first time. This was the very same day the Druids in Britain, the Norsemen in Scandinavia, and the pagan Germans among others were keeping their festival of ALL SOULS EVE, in commemoration of Saman, lord of death, and his demons.

Reason for Change

Why did the church change the date to November 1st, thus coinciding with the pagans' feast of ALL SOULS? There is a reason!

It was a general practice of the restored Roman Empire, now professing Christianity, to "convert" the pagans within the empire as quickly and on as large a scale as possible. Changing dates of festivals often made it easier to influence newly conquered peoples.

Ever since the time of Constantine -- who made a state religion out of Christianity -- the Roman emperors realized how essential it was to have a UNIFIED empire, in which as many as possible would be of ONE MIND. The civil and religious leaders saw how important it was for the sake of unity to ALLOW ONLY ONE RELIGION within the restored Roman domain. It became therefore a stringent state policy to force all non-Christians to accept the new state religion. Here is how the plan was carried out.

Conversion of Germans

When the German Frankish king Charlemagne invaded and conquered parts of Eastern Germany, he compelled the conquered German king, Wittekind, to be baptized and to accept Christianity. Having no choice and seeing his life was at stake, this heathen ruler who knew little or nothing about Christ -- was forced into this "conversion." And with him his entire people. This policy brought complex problems.

These pagans, who were usually baptized EN MASSE, were still pagans at heart.
Even though they became nominal Christians, they still yearned for many of their heathen practices, which they were expected to discard.

With Wittekind's baptism, for example, a vast number of barbarians were suddenly added to the roll call of the church. Wittekind's Germans, now professing Christians, and other conquered pagans, had a profound influence on the ecclesiastical affairs of the church in the early 800's A. D. These barbaric and uncultured people brought with them many outright pagan practices and celebrations, Hallowe'en merely being one of many. They were fervent in clinging to their past ceremonies and observed them openly -- yet supposedly converted to Christianity. What was the church to do?

Excommunicate them and thus reduce her membership? This she would not do. Was she to force them into discarding their heathen practices and adopt Italian or Roman ones? This, as she had learned in past times, was not possible.

There remained only one other way. Let the recently converted pagans keep certain of their heathen festivals, such as Hallowe'en or All Souls Day -- but label it "Christian." Of course the Germans were asked not to pray to their ancient pagan gods on this day. They must now use this day to commemorate the death of the saints.

To make it easy for them, the Roman Church even CHANGED HER DATE of All Saints Day from May 13 to November 1st to satisfy the growing numbers of Germanic adherents. The Church understood the yearnings the Germans and others had for their old ways.

Throughout history, the Christian-professing world has resorted to this action. We have the theological explanation of this given to us by Pope Innocent. He refers to a heathen festival the pagans kept in the early part of the Roman Empire and explained how the professing Christian world should treat this day: "The heathen dedicated this month [2 Feb.] to the infernal gods ... In the beginning of this month the idolaters walked about the city with lighted candles, and as some of the holy fathers COULD NOT EXTIRPATE SUCH A CUSTOM, they ORDAINED that Christians should carry about candles IN HONOUR OF THE "VIRGIN MARY" (Folklore, James Napier, p. 181).

If a pagan practice or festival could not be forbidden, it was reasoned, "let it be tamed." Thus many were persuaded to TRANSFER devotion from their former gods to the Christian God. So it was with the festival of ALL SOULS EVE. Notice this admission: "Thus, at the first promulgation of Christianity to the Gentile nations ... THEY COULD NOT BE PERSUADED TO RELINQUISH many of their superstitions, which, rather than
forego altogether, they chose to blend and INCORPORATE with the new faith" (Popular Antiquities of Great Britain, John Brand, p. xi).

What About Our Time?

Now come down to the twentieth century. You'll be surprised to what extent we have inherited pagan rites and ceremonies from our forefathers, so obvious in the celebration of Hallowe'en. Note this classic example. "In many Catholic countries the belief that the DEAD RETURN on this day is so strong, that food is left on the
tables and people still decorate the graves of the dead [on this day]" (Dictionary of Folklore, Funk and Wagnalls, v. 1, p. 38).

In Protestant countries many pagan superstitious beliefs and practices have become an integral part of each year's celebration.

In many parts of Britain, BONFIRES are set alight on the eve of Hallowe'en. Of course fire has nothing to do with praying for dead saints. The original reason for the fire, however, was to frighten away witches and evil spirits on this night. Fire has always been an essential part of Hallowe'en in Great Britain.

You and Your Children

What about you and your children? What comes to your mind when thinking about Hallowe'en? The truth of the Bible? Not at all! Instead, weird and FRIGHTENING MASKS -- persons PORTRAYED AS WITCHES AND DEMONS. Pumpkins and turnips hollowed out in the shape of EERIE-LOOKING faces! Lighted candles are placed inside to help bring out the more frightful side of these carvings. Dough is baked into small figurines RESEMBLING WITCHES AND SPIDER'S WEB CAKES are baked by the dozen for this occasion. Children, dressed up in the most revolting garments, are let loose on the neighbors, trying to
scare the daylights out of them.

Let's be honest. I have before me the Good Housekeeping's Book of Entertainment, which my wife picked up from the local library. On page 168 of this much-read book, there is a section on what to do on Hallowe'en. Notice the astonishing advice given!

"Halloween decorations are quite as important as the food. When planning them, remember that if the room is to be dimly lit (preferably by candle and FIRELIGHT) the decorations must be bold to be effective. Orange, black and red, THE DEVIL'S COLOURS, are the colours associated with Halloween and THIS SCHEME SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT as far as possible ... Have paper streamers and lanterns hanging from the ceiling, or, if you would like to have something less usual, you could make a giant SPIDER'S web with black and orange strings, or in narrow strips of crepe paper coming from the four corners of the room, complete with a LARGE SPIDER -- one of the DEVIL'S FAVOURITE FOLLOWERS."

Notice where the stress lies! Read further of the black magic associated with this festival. "To decorate the walls, make large silhouettes of CATS, BATS, OWLS AND WITCHES ON BROOMSTICKS ... For the supper table small WITCHES WITH BROOMSTICKS can be
made by using lollipops on 4-inch sticks."

Weird lanterns, witch-balls, and witches' cauldrons are some other objects, the book suggests, which must fit into the evening somehow. How pagan can you get?

NOWHERE does the Bible command us to observe Hallowe'en. Hallowe'en and other common festivals which people observe in the Christian-professing world have NO BIBLICAL BASIS.

They originated in paganism. The testimony of history stamps Hallowe'en as a HEATHEN festival. It's built on a PAGAN FOUNDATION.

Your Bible warns: "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (I Cor. 3:11). Which is the BASIS of YOUR practice and belief?

Turn to Deuteronomy 12:29-31 and read God's condemnation of Hallowe'en! And write for our free article on Hallowe'en which covers many other startling facts not included here!

Ariel Sharon: From Zionist to Traitor

Ariel Sharon: From Zionist to Traitor

The Atlantic Times now contributes to the myth of the man, Ariel Sharon, and perpetuates the big lie of the "peace process."

Editor in chief Rafael Seligmann's masterpiece of deception -- "Sharon: 'First and Foremost, I'm a Jew'" -- belies harsh reality for pretty platitudes and historical revision. No self-respecting Jew would act like General Sharon who brutally betrayed those who elected him and violently expelled faithful Zionist Jews from their homes and businesses rather than defeat and drive out Israel's sworn enemies, the Nazi-Muslims. How upside down. How Luciferian! (Isaiah 5:20).

Rather than repeating the mindless mantras about a peace that NEVER materialized despite the big lie of "land for peace," with "peace partners" that never existed (read and believe the covenants of death written by the bloody PLO, Fatah and Hamas -- all who collaborate to erase Israel off the map), Seligmann's (fifth) Column could have honestly told the rest of the story and properly informed his readers about how the treacherous and selfish Ariel Sharon sold out Israel to foreign interests, a puppet of his German-Jesuit EU masters, and how he won't be around for the bitter harvest of the rotten fruit of his wicked labor.

Herr Seligmann's sloppy swill only feeds further disinformation to the masses and aids and abets those out to weaken and destroy Israel while slobbering "peace" as they prepare for war. The EU beast will rip and tear and devour both Arabs and Jews who are being played against each other, inviting the disaster of international intervention.

Sharon didn't "transform from soldier to statesman" (vomit), he morphed for money from Zionist to traitor, backstabbing the Israeli Defence Forces (the first Israeli General to abuse the IDF against Israeli citizens). General Sharon could have enforced peace through strength, securing Israel a hard-earned victory, rather than rewarding terrorism and undermining Israeli security, breaching their sovereignty, permitting Roman wolves in sheep's clothing, "peacekeepers," to pollute the Holy Land of Israel.

The EU jackboot will soon trample Ariel Sharon's grave, inherit his farm and occupy the Jewish homeland, while Israelis curse his name, and that of his partner in crime, Shimon Peres.

Mama Evans

Mama Evans

Erma Evans, a widow in the Church of God, served as a perfect example of what the Apostle Paul called for from our senior women (Titus 2:3). She touched the lives of many and was affectionally called "Mama Evans" by the young fellows of the Worldwide Church of God in Toledo, Ohio: Church singles whom she graciously would have over for a home-cooked meal every month.

Mrs. Evans knew all about southern hospitality since she was originally from Mud Creek, Kentucky. She would offer the meal, after we prayed, and would often then fall asleep on her couch, practically purring like a kitty, content as we fellowshipped and played board games or cards.

The following is a letter from "Mama Evans" that she sent me when I was living in Israel (August 1989), getting ready to begin a work-study program at Kibbutz Sdot Yam near Caesarea. It reveals a little more of this precious woman God blessed us with:

Dear David:

Just a few lines to say hello and that I miss you very much and get a thrill of thankfulness and joy when I can speak of having a son in Israel.

This must be a dream come true. All my life I have dreamed of going to all the far off places. I think I was born a wanderlust child.

Any place even as a little girl that I read or heard about it just filled me with desire to get up and go. Even today I feel the same way.

My Dad must have been the same way because his books of which he had many were about places all over the world.

He would talk to me even when I was 5 yrs. old about the far corners of the earth even China, but I never got any farther than Toledo.

But in the world tomorrow I hope to be able to flit from place to place. When I looked at the picture I could picture Christ walking on the shores of Galilee.

I pray for His Coming to rescue the world. It can't be too soon for me.

Everyone who knows you misses you. You are a special kind of guy. A little rebellious with a head full of dreams mixed with knowledge, There can't be another like you. I have a feeling you are very special to God.

Take care honey and don't forget all that you know of God's Truth. Bye for now.
Love you,
Mom Evans

This letter shows how loving Mama was... She was always gentle but firm if necessary, but you never doubted she always had your best interests at heart. She used to say "a little love goes a long way, " "they need love the most who deserve it the least" and "tears purify the soul."

I was pleased to write this poem for her one Sabbath day (on the spur of the moment, wanting to help let her know how much we loved and appreciated her), and gave it to her at our Church services before I left, getting a big hug and kiss in return:

Mama Evans

Her warmth and love is known both far & wide
Her wonderful smile illuminates lives
Her sweet laughter uplifts many hearts
Helping both young & old she knows is her part
Giving hugs & kisses, making many meals
Veritable love feasts from a woman sincere
GOD BLESS OUR ERMA we need her so dear
Keep her close to your Kingdom
Help her bring You near.

Mama Evans, 89, died October 29, 1998. We know she rests in peace and awaits the First Resurrection. Meanwhile, Mama lives on and shines through the eyes of those who remember her and have tales to tell of her from the heart.

Reopen Rabin assassination file!

The Israeli prosecutor of the ALLEGED assassin of Yitzhak Rabin has now publicly expressed doubt and asked questions, raising concerns the real killers still walk free and Shimon Peres got away with murder.

New evidence further PROVES Yigal Amir did not kill Yitzhak Rabin. It's past time Israelis demand: REOPEN THE RABIN FILE. And now with the release of the Kempler video of Yitzhak Rabin's staged assassination, many are doing just that!

Don't crown Prince Charles king!

The Daily Express reports:

'King' Charles, the defender of faiths

...He has told courtiers that he wants a separate service involving Muslims, Jews and Buddhists to show he represents people of all religions...

God forbid Charles ever becomes king as his murderous and adulterous affair with that rottweiler appears to render him unfit to reign from the throne of King David over British-Israel.

Let Prince William become king and may the scion of David remember his Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and act accordingly.

Chapter Three: "Dirty Tricks"

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, Day 4, Eighth Month ("Cheshvan"), 5767; Yom Chamishi (Fifth Day of Week/"Thurs"-day, October 26, 2006), Root & Branch Information Services [mailto:rb@rb.org.il] [www.rb.org.il]:

Chapter Three: "Dirty Tricks"

While one of Eyal's main purposes was to enroll young idealists and radicalize them, another was to eliminate political leaders. Yitzhak Rabin was not the first victim, just the most permanent. Preceding him was today's prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

One month before Rabin's assassination, on October 5 [1995], another kind of rally took place in Jerusalem. A quarter of a million people gathered to protest the government's "peace" diplomacy. The featured speaker was Binyamin Netanyahu. The sheer size of the protest, which clogged downtown Jerusalem's streets for eight blocks, shocked the promulgators of the "peace" process.

To counterbalance the massive demonstration, two of the ["peace" process] promulgators, former Likud mayor of Tel Aviv Shlomo Lahat and a mysterious Frenchman who had been bankrolling a semi-sophisticated brainwashing campaign on behalf of the "peace" process, Jean Friedman, decided to organize an equally large demonstration in Tel Aviv. Even after busing many thousands of political hacks and youth group members -- a third Israeli Arabs organized to beef up the attendance -- only about half as many people showed up and the prime minister was assassinated there.

As was Netanyahu at the Jerusalem rally. Although it was only a character assassination, it served the same purpose of eliminating him [Netanyahu] from the political arena. And the man behind the assassination was also the same: Shabak officer Avishai Raviv.

The weapon he [Raviv] used was a poster of Rabin wearing a Gestapo uniform which Netanyahu was wrongly accused of having approved. Thus, he [Netanyahu] was later accused of creating the atmosphere which led directly to Rabin's murder. Ironically, it was Rabin himself who made the accusation that Netanyahu was inciting violence, in the Knesset.

The implications are profound. The prime minister is responsible for the Shabak and for approving its activities. Unless the Shabak dared to work behind his back, Rabin approved the Raviv operation, thus signing his own death warrant, and in all likelihood he also approved the use of the poster to humiliate Netanyahu.

Yediot Ahronot, November 19, 1995

According to testimony from Judea and Samaria Council spokesman Aharon Domb; Avishai Raviv along with other Eyal people were seen on the night of the demonstration in Zion Square (Jerusalem), October 5, distributing the poster.


Yediot Ahronot, November 20, 1995

Channel One reporter, Nitzan Khen, told viewers of last night's news program that just a few minutes before beginning to broadcast from the demonstration of the right at Zion Square, he was given a leaflet showing Rabin in an
Gestapo uniform by Avishai Raviv.

Khen: "Raviv came up to me with two other people known to me, an Eyal activist and Kach member. They came to the broadcast van and gave me the leaflet. After five or ten minutes Raviv returned to make sure I had broadcast it".


Yediot Ahronot, November 12, 1995

Police Captain Yehuda Saidoff: "I concluded that Nitzan Khen has a wild imagination and poor memory for facts. Raviv was more believable to me". Raviv told Saidoff that he received just one copy of the leaflet from a Yeshivah student named Aharon Victor and when he got home, he ripped it up.


Yediot Ahronot, November 27, 1995

In Jerusalem yesterday, a 16 year old yeshivah student was remanded for three days for distributing a leaflet of Yitzhak Rabin in an S.S. uniform at the rally in Zion Square. He admitted guilt and said he regretted his actions. According to him, Avishai Raviv was responsible for distributing the leaflet.


Ma'ariv, November 27, 1995

The police will question Avishai Raviv on suspicion that he distributed leaflets showing Rabin in an S.S. uniform at the right wing rally at Zion Square. One of the two arrested Yeshivah students had close ties to Raviv. Police will question other yeshivah students to establish the extent of the suspect's ties with Raviv.

At the time of the demonstration, when Rabin was very much alive, the issue of who distributed the leaflet was marginal. It didn't matter who distributed it, the issue was that Netanyahu didn't condemn the blown-up poster and leaflets from the podium. But Netanyahu couldn't and didn't see the posters from the stage. When he tried to explain that fact to the Knesset, Rabin indignantly walked out of the chamber.

And at the time, it seemed he [Rabin] had every right to put on his show of anger. But within two weeks of his death, the public knew about Raviv's role in the Shabak and the issue looked quite different. Nitzan Khen testified at the
Shamgar Commission hearings that Raviv and another Eyal member gave him the leaflet of Rabin in a Gestapo uniform. Rabin was responsible as Defence Minister for Shabak activities. He knew exactly who Raviv and Eyal were.

At a maximum, he [Rabin] approved the poster operation. At a minimum, he knew it was a Shabak ploy to weaken opposition to the peace process. Either way, by walking out of the Knesset while Netanyahu was speaking, he [Rabin] knew he was playing a dirty trick on his political rival.

How could Rabin have sunk that low? I believe he [Rabin] was just following instructions from the foreign, mostly American, forces behind the "peace" process. At that point, Netanyahu was leading Rabin in the polls by over 18% and a crowd exceeding 200,000 in a city [Jerusalem] of fewer than 400,000 Jews had gathered to support him [Netanyahu].

The country [Israel] was not divided in two over "peace". The vast majority had soured on the process. The month before, a Ma'ariv poll revealed that 78% of Israelis wanted a national referendum on whether to carry on the government's "peace" diplomacy. Members of the government were booed whenever they appeared in public, but none more so than Rabin.

In August, 50,000 fans at a soccer game between Israel and Brazil jeered in unison when he [Rabin] arrived. Not long after, he was humiliated when his speech before 1,000 English speaking immigrants was marred by the loudest uniformly loud long boo ever heard in Netanya.

A constant vigil of protesters stood outside Rabin's home in suburban Tel Aviv, but none was so vicious as the Eyal crowd who promised that he and his wife would hang in a public square like the Mussolinis. Eyal was playing a sophisticated game of delegitimizing legal protest through extra-legal extremism.

Raviv and his cohorts could only have gotten away with it with the connivance of the police, which meant the participation of Police Minister Moshe Shahal, the same Shahal who was sending mounted policemen into crowds to club thousands of anti-government demonstrators. Indeed, Raviv was held for questioning by the police for the 'Rabin as Gestapo officer' poster, but as in every previous case where the police questioned him, he was released shortly after to continue his fine work.

The public trusted Nitzan Khen and believed him when he testified to the Shamgar Commission that Avishai Raviv gave him the infamous leaflet. To cover up the truth, Captain Saidoff took the side of the notorious extremist Raviv over that of the respected journalist Khen. This was just a part of a much more wide-ranging pattern of a coverup of Eyal's activities by the police and Justice Ministry.

Marc Weiss writes in The Jewish Press, April 25, 1997:

Apparently, the Israeli Justice Department had been informed of Raviv's true identity and informant status, and was instructed not to bring agent 'Champagne' to trial for his illegal actions".

In a document obtained by The Jewish Press, the Special Branch of the Israeli Police that deals with extremist groups wrote to Raviv on February 21, 1996 informing him that they were closing their files and declining to prosecute him for the charges of "incitement" against the government. Ironically, the document cites "the lack of public interest" in Raviv's provocations as the reason.

This document -- when viewed in light of the fact that it was Raviv's repeated inciting declarations concerning the dire need and biblical permissibility of killing Rabin that laid the very foundation for Yigal Amir's actions -- is startling in its implications. Time and again, Raviv was permitted by the State Prosecutor's office to continue on with his campaign of provocation without fear of arrest or prison. The burning question that now cries out for an answer is why.

Why was Raviv never seriously prosecuted and why didn't Attorney-General Michael Ben-Yair order the Shin Bet [Shabak] to immediately curtail its illegal undercover activities?

Who was behind these decisions?

Moreover, how far up into the Justice Ministry and Prime Minister's Office did the discussions concerning Raviv reach?

Who exactly was behind the decision to give Gillon and Raviv carte blanche to continue to infiltrate and incite?

Who permitted Rabin and the Labor Party leadership to utilize the Israeli security services to discredit Netanyahu and the Likud?

Ma'ariv, November 23, 1995

The issue today is the question if Rabin was called to the Shabak head's office after he condemned Netanyahu in the Knesset for the Nazi uniform scandal to be told, "Mr. Prime Minister, you must know that the people who distributed the leaflet were not our political enemies but our own agents".


Yediot Ahronot, November 24,1 995

I can't believe the government itself distributed the leaflet showing the prime minister in a Nazi uniform. I'm certain the Shabak would never have gone ahead with this kind of operation on its own. However, the government exploited the issue viciously to wound the rival political camp which is made up of half the population.

It's a scandal. I don't know who decided on the operation that so slandered the prime minister and led to his demise. It's possible that the Shabak agent who distributed the leaflet had something to do with that.


Ma'ariv, November 20, 1995

The editorial staff of Ma'ariv asks the police and Justice Ministry...Why haven't you revealed which printing house published the leaflet and why haven't you found the person who ordered the printing?


Yediot Ahronot, November 20, 1995

Since Rabin's murder, claim Likud spokespeople, their political opposition has waged a cynical campaign aimed at blaming them for the incitement culminating with the poster of Rabin in a Nazi uniform, which led to the

Benny Begin asked: "Did the Shabak report to the politicians, before or after the rally, that their agent Raviv distributed the leaflets of the prime minister in a Nazi uniform?"

The difficult question is, did the political establishment know of Raviv's responsibility and cynically exploit it to gain politically by humiliating Binyamin Netanyahu?

Says Binyamin Netanyahu: "If even a part of what is being revealed is true, then there exists a serious threat to our democracy. We demand a full inquiry. We won't permit a coverup.

Immediately after the assassination, the media broadcast numerous claims that Netanyahu killed Rabin by creating the atmosphere which bred the killer. The "proof" of this absurd contention -- in fact, Netanyahu was a suspiciously weak opposition leader -- was always the poster of Rabin in the S.S. garb which he allegedly refused to condemn.

In the name of this Shabak-organized pre-assassination incitement, the police were far too ready to initiate a campaign of repression. The Justice Ministry passed a law making a broad definition of incitement illegal, and the roundups began.

Three rabbis accused of declaring Rabin a persecutor were held for questioning and one was imprisoned without charge for months. An Israeli farmer who expressed satisfaction with the murder during a C.N.N. interview was imprisoned for expressing an inciteful point of view. Shmuel Cytryn of Hebron, who exposed Raviv as a Shabak agent two months before the assassination, was arrested and imprisoned in solitary confinement for four months without ever being charged. Dozens of political opponents were arrested and jailed under Administrative Detention orders which permit arrest without charge. A well prepared clampdown and witch hunt of people opposed to the "peace" process gripped the nation and all because a poster led to an atmosphere that killed the now besainted former Prime Minister.

Netanyahu was humiliated time and again for his alleged role in the poster scandal. While Leah Rabin greeted Yasir Arafat in her home during the grieving period, she refused to host Netanyahu or even shake his hand when he offered condolences against at the funeral. Even a year later when he was prime minister, his attendance at a memorial service for Rabin was marred by protesters accusing him of as good as pulling the trigger by creating the atmosphere of hatred that spawned the murder.

But by now he [Netanyahu] was well aware of the truth. He knew that a Shabak provocateur was trying to force him out of the political arena by distributing the leaflets and displaying the poster. The May before, during his election campaign, he promised if elected to prosecute Avishai Raviv.

Yet after the assassination, while he [Netanyahu] was being vilified, he broke his promise to demand a commission of inquiry into Raviv's activities and after the election he broke his promise to prosecute Raviv.

Why wouldn't he [Netanyahu] want his good name and the good name of his party cleared?

Natan Gefen, a diligent researcher of the assassination, best known for acquiring a controversial and contentious death certificate from Ichilov Hospital certifying that Rabin was shot through the chest, thinks he knows why:

Before the election, I took the certificate to two Likud Knesset Members, Yossi Olmert and Dov Shilansky, fully expecting them to consider the political advantages of it. Olmert told me, "We don't need the document". A deal was cut, I'm sure of it. Labor didn't bring up Rabin's memory during the campaign and neither did the Likud. Peres stopped campaigning altogether, he threw the television debate with Netanyahu, he [Peres] was leading in all the polls by 4% the morning of the vote and he [Peres] still lost. Netanyahu got the full story from sympathizers in the Shabak and he agreed to hush it up in return for winning power. That's why the coverup is still going on like nothing changed after the elections.

Gefen's intuition proved right.

Two months later I was invited to a cabinet minister's office. The minister's spokesman informed me that the Likud had prepared a file containing which information about Rabin's murder would be released publicly if Labor utilized Rabin's name in the election campaign.

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov from Modi'in,

It was during such a witch hunt after the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin that I was interrogated, detained and unjustly deported from Israel.

The secular authorities didn't appreciate my article in Jerusalem (and read throughout Israel and now the world) that highlights the Temple Mount suffering under a Nazi-Muslim occupation against both secular and biblical law, illegally practicing religious discrimination daily against Jews and Christians, denying us freedom of entrance to our most holy site - the TEMPLE Mount - as the 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places requires.

While Shabak interrogated me about the Temple Mount, they brought up Baruch Goldstein, asked me if I knew what a "rodef" is, trying to establish a pattern (that didn't exist) of support for vigilantes and ensnare me.

When Caesar Plays God: When the State Oversteps Its Bounds

Consul General Edward Abington, Jr.'s letter to Representative Marcy Kaptur further PROVES that I was not deported for any plot or terrorist activity whatsoever as falsely charged in smear campaigns (evident to every honest person), but the official Israeli lie/excuse for my unjust deportation, as noted in the letter, is "AN EXPIRED VISA."

Call for Preemptive Strike against Gaza

After reading Israeli military petitioning to reoccupy Gaza (Aaron Klein/WorldNetDaily), I'm angered to write that the bleeding wound of Gaza should have been cauterized years ago, turned into a crater, and its vile inhabitants destroyed or expelled to their many Arab countries of origin. Israel could have offered overwhelming evidence to the world media of the Gazans preparation and declarations of war, going on the offensive for once, and taking the preemptive strike any self-respecting nation would exercise immediately.

Don't you get weary of supporting a strong Israel when the Israelis elect parties determined to undermine Israeli sovereignty, expel Jews, reward terrorism and refuse to do the right thing? (Can you say Kadima?)

Why should Christian Zionists and Jews (in self-imposed exile) be more concerned than the Israelis who are reaping what they've sown? Yes, we love and encourage those who truly are Zionist and love all the Land, but even they refuse to get their act together and form a united front against the onslaught of UNJews (bought and paid for by foreigners, especially the entire Israeli oligarchy), sworn Arab enemies and imminent EU occupation.

High Priestess of the Palestinian State

by Don Feder (10-23-06)

If the State Department has a religion, it’s Palestinian statehood. On its altar, diplomats are eager to sacrifice the security of America’s only reliable Middle East ally and, ultimately, our own security as well.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has become the high priestess of this cult – muttering mystic incantations about Palestinian suffering under the brutal Israeli occupation and how a Palestinian state would be the crowning achievement of American foreign policy, much the way the Munich pact was the Olympic gold of British diplomacy.

Her recent address to the American Palestine Task Force was modestly described by the Zionist Organization of America as the “most pro-Palestinian Arab, anti-Israel speech in memory by a major U.S. administration official.”

In her remarks, Rice confessed, “I believe that there could be no greater legacy for America than to help bring into being a Palestinian state for a people who” suffer the “daily humiliation.” of living under the so-called Israeli occupation.

This is the way our secretary of state chooses to characterize the nation that has been our steadfast friend for 60 years (brutal occupying power), to demonstrate her devotion for a people who celebrated the slaughter of 3,000 Americans on 9/11 by dancing in the streets of Ramallah.

As a student of history, Rice observed, I know that “there are so many things that once seemed impossible that, after they happened, simply seemed inevitable.” She wasn’t talking about the improbable rise of Nazism in Germany, which would be an apt comparison here.

Scholar that she is, Rice had another political movement in mind, “By all rights, America, the United States of America (in case her audience thought she was referring to another America), should never have come into being,” the lady declared.

To compare Washington, Adams and Jefferson to Arafat, Abbas and the mad bombers of Hamas is kinky, to say the least. Our Founding Fathers were men of learning, achievement and discernment, not a gang of Allah-intoxicated savages. They demonstrated their courage by pledging their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, not by turning mothers and children into smoldering lumps of mangled flesh.

“The Palestinian people deserve a better life, a life that is rooted in liberty, democracy, uncompromised by violence and terrorism,” Rice inanely proclaimed.

What the French are to cuisine and collaboration, the Palestinians are to violence and terrorism.

In January of this year, the Palestinians gave Hamas control of their legislature. It’s not that the rival gang (Fatah) isn’t also a terrorist entity. It’s just that Hamas is more bloodthirsty and fanatical – good things in the eyes of the worthy Palestinian people. Gary Bauer summarized the election’s outcome with the observation, “Faced with a choice, the Palestinian voters picked the most ardent and committed Jew-haters and America-haters.”

In recent opinion polls, 61 percent of Palestinians supported suicide bombings and terrorism, 56 percent favored rocket attacks on civilian targets, 75 percent endorsed the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers (which sparked a mini-war on Israel’s northern border in July and August), and 97 percent were pro-Hezbollah.

Palestinian tastes run to Protocols-of-Elders-of-Zion-type anti-Semitism, “honor killing” of women suspected of adultery, the brutal murder of Israeli civilians, and the sectarian-cleansing of Nazareth and Bethlehem, once overwhelmingly Christian cities.

In the aftermath of Pope Benedict XVI’s speech at a Bavarian university, which included a quote by a 14th century Byzantine emperor, the state-run television station of the Palestinian Authority described the pontiff as “arrogant,” “stupid,” and “criminal.” The pope will be judged by Allah on the day “when eyes stare in terror,” the jihad network predicted.

Hey, the Palestinians need a symbol for their state, right – like Uncle Sam for the U.S. or John Bull for the Brits? How about the mother of a suicide bomber decked out in fashionable black robes describing her pride and pleasure that her martyr son did Allah’s will by detonating himself along with as many innocents as possible?

Rice could look far and wide and not find worse candidates for creating a nation where democracy, tolerance, and pluralism will reign than the Palestinians.

But Condi is more than a ditzy cheerleader for Palestinian nationalism. She’s also a facilitator par excellence. A year ago, Ms. Rice brokered the deal to hand Gaza over to the terrorists, which entailed 7,500 Jews being driven from their homes.

It wasn’t long before the Minutemen of the Middle East were expressing their gratitude for this by rocket attacks on Israel’s southern settlements (45 in September alone).

Rice pressured Israel into turning over checkpoints on the Gaza/Sinai border to a joint force of Palestinians and Egyptians. Since then, Palestinian terrorists (excuse the redundancy) have smuggled 15 tons of explosives over the border, as well as quantities of rifles, ammunition, rockets and other weapons and munitions. Condi must be very popular with Israelis just a rocket’s shot from Gaza.

Now she wants the U.S. to fund an expansion of Abbas’s Presidential Guard from 2,500 to 6,000 troops. She also wants Israel to approve the transfer of additional weapons to the ironically misnamed Palestinian security forces. Toys for Terrorists?

If Condoleezza Rice has a favorite Palestinian, it’s Mahmoud Abbas, president of the “Palestinian Authority.”

In the fantasy realm Rice has constructed, Abbas is the moderate working feverishly for democracy and human rights in Jihadistan, as well as for an enduring peace with Israel. Good Abbas and his noble Fatah party are contrasted with the terrorist black hats of Hamas.

On her Middle East trip earlier this month, Rice told reporters she had “great admiration” for the president of the Palestinians, and praised his “willingness” to restart negotiations with the Israelis (so gracious of him).

“You have the strong commitment of the United States to that cause and the personal commitment of me,” the secretary of state simpered.

Palestine’s George Washington was Arafat’s chief deputy for 40 years and helped him to found Fatah. Abbas was paymaster for the Munich Olympics assassins. His Ph.D. thesis on why the Holocaust never happened reads like David Duke’s memoirs.

Abbas’s party, Fatah, was the undisputed master of the Palestinian Authority until January, when it lost the aforementioned legislative elections to Hamas. (It still controls the presidency.) Fatah and Hamas are rival gangs – like the Capone mob and Bugs Moran’s boys – engaged in a turf war. One is more religious, the other more ideological. Otherwise, there’s no difference..

Both are anti-American. Both seek the destruction of Israel. Both are willing to wade through a river of blood to reach their goals. Both envision a Palestinian state which will resemble a hybrid of Syria and Iran – without the amenities.

* There’s an assiduously cultivated myth that unlike Hamas, Abbas recognizes Israel. Abbas has made it quite clear that he recognizes his Israeli counterparts for purposes of negotiations (when he thinks he can get something) – not Israel’s legitimacy or claim to any territory.

* The charter of Abbas’ party calls for the annihilation of Israel. Maps of the Palestinian Authority show Palestine from the Jordan to the sea. In a 2004 interview on Iranian television, then PA Foreign Minister Farouk Kaddoumi said Fatah’s embrace of a two-state solution was a feint. “At this stage, there will be two states. Many years from now, there will be one state.”

* Abu Ahmed, a leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s terrorist auxiliary) is frank: “The base of our Fatah movement keeps dreaming of Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jaffa and Aco. There has been no change in our position (vis a vis the Zionist entity). Abbas recognizes Israel because of the pressure that the Zionists and the Americans are exercising on him. We understand this is part of his obligations and political calculations.” It’s an act to get the dumb Americans to pour hundreds of millions of dollars into the Palestinian Authority and pressure Jerusalem into giving in to his latest demand.

* The Brigades are responsible for every suicide bombing inside Israel in the last two years. Rice’s State Department considers the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades a terrorist group. Members of the Brigades are members of Fatah. It was started by Arafat. When they overran Fatah headquarters in 2003, the Israelis discovered documentation that the party had recently transferred $50,000 to the Brigades. With the Brigades, Abbas can have it both ways – playing the sober, business-suited diplomat for the West, while acting as the terrorist chieftain for his own people.

* Abbas has authorized the payment of annuities to the families of suicide bombers. Of both Hamas and the Brigades, Rice’s favorite Palestinian politician says, “Israel calls them terrorists, we call them strugglers.” Also, “Allah loves the martyr.” Suicide bombers should be recognized as “heroes fighting for freedom.” He’s also praised the Islamic lunatics of Hezbollah as a shining example of what he calls the “Arab resistance.”

* A year ago, when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad began raving about wiping Israel off the face of the earth, Abbas’s party in Gaza distributed flyers proclaiming, “We affirm our support and backing for the positions of the Iranian president toward the Zionist state which, by God’s will, will cease to exist.”

By the will of Allah – and with the unwitting support of Condoleezza Rice.

In her speech to the American Palestinian Task Force, Rice described Palestinian statehood as the impossible dream that we must dare to dream nonetheless.

It’s more like the inevitable nightmare. Everyone wants it. Its boosters include Tony Blair, the European Union, the UN, Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush, the Saudis, the Arab League, the Conference of Islamic Organizations, al Qaeda, Iranian mullahs, Bashar Assad, etc., etc. At least half of Israel, including the Olmert government, is willing to go along with it.

The two-state solution is a one-state solution in disguise.

With a Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza, Israel will lose strategic depth. It will be 9 miles wide at its narrow waist. It will lose the high ground of Judea and Samaria. Most of its population and industry will be within mortar- and rocket- range. Instead of a 40-mile eastern border, its new border with the State of Palestine will be over 400 miles long.

For their future security, Israelis will have to trust in the good will of Mahmoud Abbas, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Hamas and al-Qaeda (which is already operating in Gaza). Apologies to the M*A*S*H theme song, but this suicide will not be painless.

Who knows, perhaps Abbas and company will erect a statue of Secretary Rice (their Marquis de Lafayette) in the future Palestinian state – just after they demolish the Knesset and Western wall, turn Yad Vashem into a mosque and drive the Jews into the sea.

Beit El Grants Pollard Citizenship

Arutz Sheva - IsraelNationalNews.com reports:

Beit El Grants Pollard Citizenship

By Hillel Fendel

The township of Beit El granted Jonathan Pollard - nearing the end of his 21st year in American prison - honorary citizenship before some 500 citizens last night. Other towns may soon follow suit.

MK Uri Ariel (National Union), one of the initiators of the idea, spoke briefly at the impressive ceremony and said that he plans to motivate other towns and cities across Israel to similarly grant this honor to Jonathan Pollard. The event was planned and organized by Beit El resident Rivka Eisenbach, on behalf of the Beit El Cultural Center.

Beit El Mayor Moshe Rosenbaum bestowed his town's first-ever honorary citizenship upon Pollard, entrusting the certificate with Mrs. Pollard and inviting the two to move together to Beit El as soon as possible. Rosenbaum read aloud the text, beginning with this verse from Isaiah: "G-d's redeemed shall return and come to Zion with joy." The text:

We, the residents of the Local Council of Beit El, are honored to grant to the Prisoner of Zion Mr. Jonathan Pollard the title 'Honorary Citizen' of Beit El. This, in recognition of his tremendous work on behalf of his people and homeland. Jonathan gave his life to save the State of Israel from very great security dangers - and in return for this, he has been rotting in American prison for 21 years. We call upon and request from the President of the United States to release him immediately. We call upon the Government of Israel, which recognized him as an Israeli agent, to put an end to his long-lasting suffering, and to this blow at Israel's honor, and to act zealously to obtain his release. We all pray to the Creator of the World for the fulfillment of this request this year.

With admiration and love, Moshe Rosenbaum, Mayor of Beit El, in the name of the residents

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner addressed the assembly, saying, "It's now 7,640 days that Jonathan Pollard has been sitting in American prison - and don't think that his American prison is anything like sitting in Israeli prison for blocking some intersection [in protest against the Disengagement; much of the audience chuckled, as many of them or their family members underwent precisely that experience]. The prison that Pollard is undergoing is pure hell. And it is made even more hellish because those who sent him have shaken off their responsibility towards him. It took so many years just for them to officially recognize him as an Israeli agent! The Americans also say that the Israelis are not making formal pleas for his release..."

"We are not in the Exile, where we have to beg," Rabbi Aviner said. "We are a sovereign state; the U.S. has interests, and Israel has interests, and we have to insist upon our interests... We must demand of our Knesset Members that they do what they can to pressure our government leaders to demand Pollard's release."

Mrs. Esther Pollard - who received an ovation when Pollard-activist Asher Mivtzari reminded the audience that she has "devoted her life" to obtaining her husband's release from prison - said that Prime Minister Olmert is scheduled to visit Washington next month. She read aloud the letter her husband had written to Olmert for the occasion, noting that Jonathan had asked that it be read to the citizens of Beit El. A Hebrew translation was read aloud by Bella Amiram, a woman who has given Esther a room in her apartment so that she can have somewhere to live while in Israel.

Pollard's letter reminds Olmert that around the same time of the visit, "I will be competing the 21st year of my incarceration in an American prison for my service to the security of the State of Israel..." He then ascribes to the Prime Minister a measure of personal responsibility for his 21 years of affliction, noting that the Prime Minister was a member of the Eban Commission, a Knesset Committee that investigated the Pollard affair20 years ago.

"You yourself," Pollard writes, "took the position that the manner of Israel's cooperation with the United States, and her assisting the prosecution against me was wrong... You had direct access to all of the information. There was so much you could have done right from the start to help me. Instead for 21 years you have shunned me; you have avoided saying or doing anything that might help; and you have dissuaded anyone who wanted to help from doing so."

"Since taking office as Prime Minster," the letter continues, "you have comported yourself as if I do not exist. Even as recently as two days ago, at the inaugural winter session of the Knesset you read out the names of all of Israel’s captives and spoke of Israel’s dedication to their swift and safe return home. My name was not on the list. A day before you made this speech, you received a written reminder of your moral and legal obligation to include me because of my status as an Israeli agent in captivity. Nevertheless, you still refused to mention my name. Such studied avoidance is no coincidence. The message it sends to the Americans is, even after 21 years in prison, I am still hefker [unwanted, abandoned]."

Specifically, Pollard accuses Olmert of not sharing with him the information that Israel's return of the documents it received from Pollard "was conditioned on a US commitment not to use the documents against me. Had I known that, it would have greatly assisted in my defense. And when the US violated that commitment, you still did not inform me of the existence of that commitment, nor did you officially protest. In all the years that have gone by since then, you have remained silent, never sharing this critical piece of information with me. Never speaking out on my behalf. Dissuading others from helping. Never doing anything at all to assist, even though you knew that your silence and inaction was costing me years of my life, and perhaps even my life."

"I ask you to end this dishonorable policy of abandonment when you visit Washington next month... Your meeting with President Bush is a golden opportunity to rectify that. By securing my release you will be acting in the best interests of the nation and all of Israel's captives. After 21 years, the return of Israel's longest-held captive is no longer an option. It is a matter of national honor."

A recent essay written by Mrs. Esther Pollard notes that former Pentagon analyst Ronald Montaperto was recently sentenced to only three months after having passed highly classified information to the Chinese over the course of several years:
"Montaperto's spying for more than a decade damaged America's ability to monitor China's covert sales of arms to nation-sponsors of terrorism, such as Iran and Syria. Nevertheless, in deference to China, prosecutors downgraded the charges against Montaperto to 'mishandling of classified information,' which carries no more than a four-year sentence. Letters to the judge from Montaperto's colleagues pared his punishment down to a mere three months!"

This illustrates, Mrs. Pollard explains, "how the American justice system bent over backward so as not to antagonize the Chinese. On the other hand, the unduly harsh treatment of Jonathan Pollard and the perpetuation of his grossly disproportionate life sentence leave no doubt about successive administrations' unrelenting covert hostility towards the Jewish state."

Though there is much damning evidence against the U.S. for its treatment of him, "the single most cogent factor in the ongoing persecution of Jonathan Pollard," his wife writes, "is the failure of the government of Israel to step up to the plate and demand his release. Israel officially recognized Jonathan as its agent in 1998, but has never acted to secure his release."

May the prayers and honorary citizenship awarded Jewish hero Jonathan Pollard ascend to Heaven and be granted, just as surely as our father Jacob's dream revealed the ladder touching Earth reached into Heaven with the angels busy at work, going back and forth to fulfill their missions.

I've been blessed to have visited Bet El to enjoy a wonderful chicken dinner with gracious resident Moshe Weissfish (cousin of Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful). May Jonathan Pollard soon be the guest of honor at many meals in the Promised Land of Israel.

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".

Chapter Two: Provoking Amir to Murder

Numerous witnesses saw Avishai Raviv provoke Yigal Amir into [allegedly] assassinating Yitzhak Rabin. Raviv utilized a long campaign of psychological pressure on Amir and Amir alone. He did not concentrate his efforts on any other Eyal activist. Amir was chosen for the task and for good reason. Not many people are capable of murder even if prodded relentlessly into it. Somehow, Raviv knew Amir was the only fit candidate for the job.

Yigal Amir spent the spring and summer of 1992 in Riga, Latvia on assignment from the Liaison Department of the Prime Minister's Office, usually called Nativ. In one of the greatest ironies of the assassination drama, it was Prime Minister Rabin who was ultimately responsible for assigning Amir to the Riga post. Or to put it another way, Amir was an employee of the man he was blamed for murdering.

Yet there was an even greater irony. Acting on reports from the State Comptroller of massive financial corruption, Rabin was preparing to shut down Nativ. Some have considered this a motive for the murder. An early, and false, excuse of the Shabak to explain how Amir was let into the sterile area was that he presented government credentials in the form of his Nativ identity card.

Nativ was and is a nest of spies. Founded in the early 1950s as a liaison between Israel and Jews trapped behind the Iron Curtain, over the years, according to Ha'aretz (November, 1995), "It had developed its own independent intelligence and operational agenda".

A hint of what that means was revealed in June, 1996, when the Russian government arrested, and then expelled, a Nativ worker named "Daniel" for illegally acquiring classified satellite photos. Indignant, the Russians threatened to close all of Israel's immigration offices in the country. The indignation was renewed in January, 1997, when "Daniel" was appointed Nativ's head of intelligence.

Another source of indignation is the fact that Nativ has been granting visas to Israel for major criminals including members of the Russian mafia and a former president of the Ukraine who escaped to Tel Aviv with $60 million stolen from his country's treasury. The escape occurred barely five months after a meeting with Police Minister Moshe Shahal, and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, in Kiev.

Within days of the assassination, the government went on full tilt to explain away Amir's Riga sojourn. First, the government admitted that Amir was a Hebrew teacher there for five months. But since he had no teacher's degree, nor spoke Latvian, the story didn't wash. So Police Minister Moshe Shahal explained that Amir was a security guard there for only three months.

That explanation had its drawbacks, as elaborated by Alex Fishman in Yediot Ahronot, who wrote, "As a guard [Amir] he was trained by the Shabak in techniques and weaponry, training he used to deadly effect on that miserable Saturday night in Tel Aviv".

The government clearly didn't like Amir's Shabak ties speculated upon, so Aliza Goren, the spokeswoman for the Prime Minister's Office, told reporters, "Amir was never in Riga and anyone who reports that he was is being totally irresponsible".

That ploy fell to bits when the B.B.C.'s Panorama program interviewed Amir's family and filmed his passport. Stamped within was a bold C.C.C.P. Goren had lied and by implication was guilty of covering up a fact the government clearly did not want known.

Speculation was rife by the beginning of 1996 that Amir was on an intelligence mission on behalf of the Prime Minister's Office in Riga. So Israel Television's Channel One broadcast a long interview with Moshe Levanon, the former head of Nativ. He insisted that his organization had no intelligence ties and then presented a series of photos illustrating his work. Included was one of him standing with former C.I.A. Director George Bush, apparently in Russia.

Amir was in Riga for a reason, and the mild-mannered soldier returned in the fall of 1992 with a changed personality. He was now Amir, the campus radical of Bar Ilan University. Something happened in Riga to alter his mind set. But whatever it was, Amir was still not quite capable of murder. Avishai Raviv had his job set out to exploit Amir's psychological weaknesses and transform him into a political assassin.

Ma'ariv, November 9, 1996

"'It was said amongst us that Rabin was a persecutor and could be sentenced to die according to biblical precepts', related Avishai Raviv at his hearing yesterday".


Ma'ariv, November 10, 1995

"An Eyal poster on Bar Ilan campus showed a photo of Rabin covered in blood. Interested students were asked to phone Raviv's beeper number for more information".


Ma'ariv, December 12, 1995

"'Several times I heard from Yigal Amir that he intended to hurt the prime minister, but I didn't take it seriously', Avishai Raviv testified to the Shamgar Commission".

Behind closed doors, Raviv testified that he once had a discussion with Amir about bullets for the gun. One implication of this testimony is that Raviv may have supplied Amir with what he thought were blank bullets.

Ma'ariv, November 26, 1995

"According to Sarah Eliash, a school teacher working at the Shomron Girls Seminary, some of her pupils heard Raviv encourage Amir to murder Rabin. Raviv told Amir, 'Show us you're a man. Do it'".


Yediot Ahronot, December 11, 1995

"One of the pupils said Raviv called a few government members 'monsters' and added that it was necessary to blow up the whole government to get rid of the 'persecutors'".

Another pupil told how Raviv used quotes from biblical commentary to prove the need to kill Rabin.

Uri Dan and Dennis Eisenberg, writing for The Jerusalem Post, elaborated on the girls' later testimony behind closed doors at the Shamgar Commission:

"Sarah Eliash had already appeared voluntarily before the commission and related how her pupils had run to see her on the night of the killing. In tears they said they knew Yigal Amir. They had met both Amir and Avishair Raviv, the General Security Services (G.S.S.) [Shabak] agent, at the settlement of Barkan last summer. 'We used to see Raviv and Amir on Saturdays during last summer', they related.

"These gatherings were arranged by Yigal...Raviv was real macho. He kept saying to Yigal: 'You keep talking about killing Rabin. Why don't you do it! Are you frightened? You say you want to do it. Show us that you're a man. Show us what you're made of'".

The other girls present corroborated the evidence. How did Amir react to the goading by Raviv? All replied in roughly the same way:

"He didn't react. He just sat there and said nothing or changed the subject".

Geula Amir, Yigal's mother, "writes" in the February, 1997 George Magazine (her piece was actually ghost-written by two Jerusalem-based journalists):

"According to Yigal's friends and others who have since testified in court, Raviv seemed to be obsessed with one topic: killing Rabin. He and Yigal frequently engaged in discussions about the feasibility of the assassination...Several young women said that they recognized Yigal and Raviv from a Sabbath retreat. The girls told their teacher, Sarah Eliash, that Raviv had denounced several Rabin government officials as 'traitors'. During several marathon ideological discussions that weekend, Raviv had attempted to goad Yigal into killing Rabin, ridiculing his cowardice for not being willing to kill a 'traitor'".

Eran Agelbo, testifying as a witness for the defense at Yigal's trial, revealed that Raviv had said that Rabin was a "Rodef" -- the Hebrew term for someone who endangers others and therefore should be killed. Agelbo also maintained that Raviv had verbally pressured Yigal to attempt an assassination of Rabin.

"Raviv told Yigal and others that there was a judgment on Yitzhak Rabin. He said, 'Rabin should die and whoever killed him was a righteous person'. Raviv had a powerful influence on Yigal. He continuously emphasized to him and other students that whoever implemented the judgment against Rabin was carrying out a holy mission".

Nice talk from a Shabak agent -- and so much for Raviv and other Shabak officers' claims that Amir came up with the idea to kill Rabin all by himself. To acquire original testimony I phoned one of Sarah Eliash's pupils. She began talking to me in Hebrew, but the phone was taken from her by her American-born father. A twenty-minute discussion took place, extracts of which follow:

Father: "...is not willing to talk to you, do you understand? She has nothing to say".

Chamish: "We'll never get to the truth if she doesn't".

Father: "Find someone else if you can. I'm not willing to let anything happen to my daughter. You have to understand that, don't you? You don't know what's going on. They promised her if she testified that nothing would happen afterward, no arrests or threats. They lied. She can't talk to you and that's that".

Chamish: "What about her civil duty? What kind of a country will it be if everyone lets criminals off?"

Father: "I used to think like that. This is no democracy. You don't know what it is. When I came here I thought it was to be free as a Jew. Now I just want to avoid getting in trouble. I can't tell you what they said they'd do to her if she talked anymore".

In total, a dozen people testified to seeing Raviv prod Amir into killing Rabin. But that was not the sum total of his involvement. There was another function to be taken care of after Amir "shot" Rabin. Arieh Oranj told me,

"Our plan was to go to Gaza to participate in another demonstration to counterbalance the one in Tel Aviv. But at the last minute he [Raviv] changed his mind and led us to the Tel Aviv rally. Not two minutes after the shooting, Raviv told us, 'Do you know who did it? Yigal Amir".

Ma'ariv, November 10, 1995

"Last Saturday night, minutes after Prime Minister Rabin was shot and well before the killer was identified, Avishair Raviv, head of Eyal, already announced that the assassin was Yigal Amir".

Immediately after the shooting, several reporters received messages on their beepers proclaiming that "Eyal takes responsibility for the deed". Minutes after the shooting, an unknown group called Jewish Vengeance called dozens of reporters leaving the message:

"We missed this time but next time we'll get him".

After Rabin's death was announced, the same group left a followup message for the same reporters, taking responsibility for the murder. Clearly, the message leaver -- most likely Raviv -- originally thought Amir was supposed to miss Rabin and was caught off guard when it turned out that Rabin was assassinated.

Ma'ariv, November 19, 1995

"As recalled, minutes after the assassination, before any reporter even knew Rabin's condition, Avishai Raviv, head of Eyal, passed on the identity of the killer. Thinking that it was a mere assassination attempt, he anonymously passed on his 'We Missed' but we'll get him next time message".

Moments later he told a Ma'ariv reporter, "We have no connection to this act. This is not our type of operation". Despite the denial, he gave out details about Yigal Amir including his exact name, that he was a student at Bar Ilan, and his army record.

Dan and Eisenberg interviewing an unnamed Shabak official:

"If this wasn't a deliberate set up", we asked, "what is? How do you react to the evidence of the bystander who heard Raviv talk to someone on his mobile phone at the peace rally and announce that it was Amir who had shot Rabin -- 40 minutes before Amir's identity was released on TV and radio?

"Of course the Shabak official didn't react. He said the testimony was unproven. What else could he say? If the testimony of so many people is true, then Avishai Raviv knew ahead of time that Amir was going to murder Rabin. And unless he kept this fact from his superiors, so did his officers in the unit he worked for, the Jewish Department of the Shabak, who had to have informed their superior, the head of the Shabak, Carmi Gillon.

"If Raviv genuinely withheld his prior knowledge of Amir's intentions, then he is an accessory to murder, if not an actual accomplice. However, no one in the Shabak, police or government is treating him that way. He has not been charged with any crime and has been hidden away in jobs aiding autistic children".

Raviv's activities on the night of the assassination strongly suggest that he thought Amir was not actually going to succeed in killing Rabin. His duty was to accept responsibility for the attempted murder on behalf of Eyal and Jewish Vengeance and thus to link the murderer to a radical, right wing religious organization. Thus, he had no compunctions about bragging to everyone within listening distance that Amir was the shooter, 40 minutes before anyone in the media knew his identity.

But Raviv, like many other Shabak agents, was double-crossed. The supposedly benign and justifiable plan to have Amir caught in the act to promote the "peace" process had turned into a murder they didn't expect. Obviously caught unaware, Raviv corrected his first telephoned press announcements after Rabin's death became official.

After that, he [Raviv], like many other Shabak agents, police officers and Rabin associates in the government became part of a murder coverup. They had no choice. They had all willingly conspired to keep "peace" alive by blaming the opposing camp for an assassination attempt. This was a crime that would end careers, smear reputations and land long term prison terms. And if that wasn't frightening enough, there was always the knowledge that murderers have no compunction about killing twice.

Shabbat Shalom from Modi'in,

South African traitor sells story

"Apartheid survivor" Eddie Daniels shares his story with the impressionable young minds of the Maumee Valley Country Day School? More like more liberal propaganda. Eddie Daniels was imprisoned in South Africa for subversive activities. He went to Robben Island for treason - not because he was some philosopher.

The Blade once praised Winnie Mandela when some of us condemned and exposed her for the murderous witch she is, a member of the Communist African National Congress that took fiendish pleasure in necklacing black opponents (putting a gasoline doused tire around the neck of a hands tied victim and then lighting it). Later even The Blade recanted its support for the "mother of Africa" when the evidence became so overwhelming she is the "murderess of Africa" and Nelson Mandela (the smooth-talking terrorist in a suit and tie) divorced her.

"Without the world, we would still be struggling. The world came to our aid," crows E.D. Yes, without the useful idiots who fell for the ANC wolf in sheep's clothing, foolish white democratic countries wouldn't have aided and abetted black racists coming to power who now terrorize the white population without any outcry from the biased media. Such "affirmative action" despots have exposed they're not saviors after all and certainly haven't brought "peace, calm, tranquility, and mutual respect" as they look the other way as white folks are brutally murdered, white women are raped, productive white farms seized and white flight continues from the formerly most prosperous country on the African continent.

Add black-ruled South Africa, with its inexcusable breakdown of law and order, to the list of African basketcases and let America take warning that what happened there can happen here, as these two articles testify:

Sharon Hughes: Throw-Away Babies

Throw-Away Babies

By Sharon Hughes

What do some hospitals do with babies that are aborted but still alive? Throw them in the ‘dirty room’. What happens if a nurse reports such treatment? They’re fired. What happens when hospitals violate the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and falsify legal documents? My guest, Jill Stanek, a nurse-now journalist, who goes where few women dare to go...bravely exposing the abortion industry's true face, talked with me about this on the show today.

She told of a nurse named 'Abby' who had an experience very similar to her own when she found an aborted baby boy that was still alive in the hospital 'dirty' room, left unattended to die. She reported this incident as well as other similar ones, but sadly, babies are aborted alive more often than is known...even to the mothers.

There are doctors who, as in the case above, falsify records instructing nurses to enter 'zero-zero' for the baby's vital signs, when in fact, the baby is very much alive. No attention is given to these babies to keep them alive, but rather they are disposed of in some of the most inhumane ways, as Jill described one aborted alive baby who was put in a bio-hazard bag and thrown out to die.

The Born Alive Infants Protection Act that Pres. Bush signed into law is being violated, and even when reported, little is being done to prosecute violations.

This is barbaric! There is no other word for it. Giving an abortion. The baby survives the abortion. Doctors and nurses do nothing to help it. Just leave it to die. But then, that's the point of the abortion, right? No baby.

As Dr. Kelly Hollowell writes in her book, Struggling for Life,

"The most dangerous time in any child's life is his or her first nine months. That's because abortion takes one out of every four children conceived in America, making the route from womb to tomb very short for millions of unborn boys and girls."

Some abortionists and clinic workers are willing to talk about their experiences in the industry, such as in the following quotes gathered by Abortionfacts.com

"They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn't want to have an abortion." -Dr. Randall, 'Pro-Choice 1990: Skeletons in the Closet" by David Kuperlain and Mark Masters in Oct "New Dimensions" magazine

Every woman has these same two questions: First, "Is it a baby?" "No" the counselor assures her. "It is a product of conception (or a blood clot, or a piece of tissue). . .How many women would have an abortion, if they told them the truth?" -Carol Everett, former owner of two clinics and director of four, "A Walk Through an Abortion Clinic" by Carol Everett ALL About Issues magazine

"I was trained by a professional marketing director in how to sell abortions over the telephone. He took every one of our receptionists, nurses, and anyone else who would deal with people over the phone through an extensive training period. The object was, when the girl called, to hook the sale so that she wouldn't get an abortion somewhere else, or adopt out her baby, or change her mind. We were doing it for the money." -Nina Whitten, chief secretary at a Dallas abortion clinic under Dr. Curtis Boyd

"If a woman we were counseling expressed doubts about having an abortion, we would say whatever was necessary to persuade her to abort immediately." -Judy W., former office manager of the second largest abortion clinic in El Paso, Texas

"We tried to avoid the women seeing them [the fetuses] They always wanted to know the sex, but we lied and said it was too early to tell. It's better for the women to think of the fetus as an ‘it’. -Abortion clinic worker Norma Eidelman quoted in Rachel Weeping

"I have seen hundreds of patients in my office who have had abortions and were just lied to by the abortion counselor. Namely 'This is less painful than having a tooth removed. It is not a baby.' Afterwards, the woman sees Life magazine and breaks down and goes into a major depression." -Psychologist Vincent Rue quoted in "Abortion Inc" David Kupelian and Jo Ann Gasper, New Dimensions

"Clinic workers may say they support a woman's right to choose, but they will also say that they do not want to see tiny hands and tiny feet....there is a great difference between the intellectual support of a woman's right to choose and the actual participation in the carnage of abortion. Because seeing body parts bothers the workers." -Judith Fetrow, former clinic worker from San Francisco quoted in "Meet the Abortion Providers III"

"One night a lady delivered and I was called to come and see her because she was 'uncontrollable.' I went into the room, and she was going to pieces; she was having a nervous breakdown, screaming and thrashing. The other patients were upset because this lady was screaming. I walked in, and here was this little saline abortion baby kicking. It had been born alive, and was kicking and moving for a little while before it finally died of those terrible burns, because the salt solution gets into the lungs and burns the lungs too. I'll tell you one thing about D& E . You never have to worry about a baby's being born alive. I won't describe D & E , other than to say that, as a doctor, you are sitting there tearing, and I mean tearing- you need a lot of strength to do it- arms and legs off of babies and putting them in a stack on top of the table." -Dr. David Brewer of Glen Ellyn Illinois

"I got to where I couldn't stand to look at the little bodies anymore" -Dr. Beverly McMillan, when asked why she stopped performing abortions

"We know that its killing, but the state permits killing under certain circumstances" -Dr. Neville Sender, abortionist

You can read more admitions here.

As this incredible well-known picture shows, taken by photographer Michael Clancy, it's a baby that's in the womb. A little human life. Dr. Joseph Bruner, Director of Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, was performing surgery on a 21-week-old baby while he was still in his mother's womb to alleviate the effects of spina bifida.

When Dr. Bruner had made the incision for this extraordinary operation, baby Samuel reached his tiny hand out of the uterus and clutched Dr. Bruner’s middle finger. See picture of Samuel Armas, after he was born here.

I don't care how politically incorrect it is to talk about this. I don't care how many pro-choice liberals, feminists et al disagree with and get mad about what I've written. These practices are unnatural, barbaric, and unbelievable that doctors and nurses could perform such acts...that clinic workers would lie to vulnerable women about what abortion really is 'for the money.' If these 'procedures' were done to any other human being, other than a baby in the womb, they'd go to jail for murder.

But then, we've passed laws saying it's okay.
