On 50th Anniversary of JFK Death, Iran’s PressTV Blames Israel
As Israel pushes for the world to halt Iran’s nuclear program, Iran’s state-controlled PressTV pushed back on Friday, mendaciously linking Israel’s efforts to become a nuclear power with the assassination of John F. Kennedy, ahead of the 50th anniversary of his death today.
“Israel and its global Zionist crime syndicate were major players if not THE main player in the JFK assassination,” PressTV columnist Dr. Kevin Barrett wrote.
Barrett first cited an article in the Jerusalem Post:
History shows that some issues are so critical that even the president of the United States cannot force Israel’s hand…The sharpest example took place almost 50 years ago, when John F. Kennedy demanded that David Ben-Gurion end Israel’s nuclear deterrent program, deemed necessary to ensure Jewish survival in a very hostile world.
He then drew some surprising conclusions:
Ben Gurion haughtily refused to answer JFK’s letter demanding that Israel abandon its nuclear aspirations. Instead, he resigned. Six months later, JFK was publicly executed. A few years after that, Ben Gurion got his nuclear weapons… and his longed-for war of aggression to steal Jerusalem.
Barrett cites an interview with author Michael Collins Piper, about his new book “Final Judgment,” which claims “CIA and military figures [were convinced] that JFK was a knowing or unknowing agent of the communists,” and that the age-old dictum to “follow the money” leads to Israel.
New Orleans DA Jim Garrison discovered that the covert operators behind the JFK coup were financed by a black-ops bank called Permindex, a subsidiary of a Swiss bank owned by legendary Mossad financier Tibor Rosenbaum. Permindex itself was chaired by Louis M. Bloomfield, the Israel lobby chieftain and kingpin of the Bronfman family of Canada. The Bronfmans have long been associated with Meyer Lansky’s crime syndicate, and are one of the biggest ‘money powers’ behind Israel.
The screed then draws in the Federal Reserve bank, another apparent “Zionist” stronghold, and the fact that the Jews in the saga outlived their Gentile partners, as all pointing to the Jewish state’s fanciful role in the great American tragedy of the 20th century.
