    It was Kissinger, Dayan, and Sadat who started the Yom Kippur war. The scheme was hatched years prior. These Vatican/CIA agents, with their contrived theater, have cost the lives of thousands, destroyed the families of millions, and reduced Israel’s territorial sovereignty by 70%.

    People deserve to know the truth.
