WATCH THE LEFTIES Meeting of President Clinton, Binyamin Netanyahu, and Arafat in Wye Plantation, 15/10/1998.



It is clear that Netanyahu is now a key figure in whether or not the Israeli Jews and Israel will survive, or whether it will be sold down the river by a Jewish Israeli elite leadership, and Netanyahu is now that leadership.


That the secret service of the Israeli State closely linked to Netanyahu should raid the tent of the parents of the Israeli prisoner of Hamas, Shalit, seems to us on 4international as the most serious, alarming development


Now it so happens that we on 4international are in total opposition to what the Shalit parents want Israel to do, which is to let free thousands of Hamas/Fatah killers of Jews (in order to kill again, surely)


But to raid and search the tent where these poor parents of Shalit are campaigning for his life…that is an entirely different matter.


There is also the way in which Netanyahu used the dirtiest methods to shut up Feiglin. And this is the leader on whom the Israelis today depend.


In this material printed here one thing stands out: That Netanyahu was created in the United States, that he is a creature of the US intelligence community, Bush Snr., Shultz (George), those kinds of people.


There is the issue of Arens choosing of Netanyahu in an ambassadorial role to the United Nations


Literally from nowhere to leadership on the basis not of a programme, but a slick method of speaking in meetings, that sums it up.


Then there was the issue of GK (Gush Katif)…The patriotic Jews looked to Netanyahu to speak against Sharon, and they waited, and they waited, until essentially it was too late. The rotten deed could not be stopped.


Now there is this whole farce of the Obama lines speech, and Netanyahu emerging as an opponent of that Obama lines policy, but not really, because he is ALSO for the creation of a Palestine state, only perhaps on different lines


So his opposition to the anti-Semite Obama is not really fundamental, and is the opposition of say a Richard Perle.


So his opposition is really also the opposition of the Israeli elitist leaders in America, those same leaders who campaigned for Arafat to have his Jihadist State, and also those very leaders who supported Izetbegovic against the Serbs, and who supported the NATO/KLA takeover of Kosovo from the Serbs


Shine the light on Netanyahu!




By; Barry Chamish*


Two Fridays after Israel’s new Prime Minister was elected, the

newspapers were filled with bios of the new leader. The most indepth

research was undertaken by Orly Azula-Katz, Anat Meidan and Rami Tal of

Yediot Ahronot who produced a balanced portrait and Biranit Goren of

Kol Ha’ir whose story was a snow job.


Nonetheless, both reports agreed in most details, if not

interpretations. These two reports, combined with other public

knowledge create a most disturbing and mysterious caricature of

Israel’s leader for students of secret diplomacy.


The Conventional Story


The prevailing myth about Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is that he

grew up in a highly politicized, right wing household. Responsibility

for the presumption lies with his father Bar Tzion, a dedicated

revisionist who was a pallbearer at the funeral of Zeev Jabotinsky.


The facts are different. Netanyahu recalls,” My father did not want me

to enter politics. We were very non-political.” The founding families

of Zionism’s revisionist wing which produced two generations of leaders

like Menachem and Benny Begin and Yaacov and Dan Meridor, barely knew

of the Netanyahus.


What Binyamin inherited from his father was an obsession with learning.

His grades in junior high were all above average but he excelled in

only one subject: music.


When Binyamin moved to America at age fourteen after his father

accepted a teaching post in Philadelphia, his hero became JFK.

Netanyahu felt very alienated being away from Israel and took waitering

jobs to earn the money to spend his summers back home. There his

greatest pleasure was working on left-wing kibbutzim with his pals from

Jerusalem. They recall that he would always try to outwork them, even

when he had an injured knee.


Returning to high school in Philadelphia, Netanyahu shared close

friendship with only those students as imbued with love for Israel as

he was. He was a straight A student who graduated fourth in his class

at Cheltenham High School, one of the most academically competitive

schools in America. But he didn’t attend his graduation ceremony. War

broke out on June 5, 1967, and Netanyahu flew to Israel to volunteer

for the army.


A high school buddy, Ari Bintener recalls,”No one was surprised. It was

obvious his place was in Israel. I was pleased that he found a way to

help his country.”


Bob Trimble, Netanyahu’s soccer coach remembers,”Bibi was the best

player on the team, except for his brother Yoni who could have played

professionally if he had wanted to. The only problem with Ben was that

his political views were so far to the left of the other players.”


As a soldier, Binyamin rose to the rank of captain in the most secret

combat unit of all, the fighting arm of military intelligence. He took

part in a good number of legendary operations and was wounded while

fighting highjackers holding a Sabena passenger plane. On the Suez, he

almost drowned trying to swim with his heavy automatic rifle under

Egyptian fire. He became known as “the lousy swimmer from Jerusalem.”


Soldiers recall him as a cool but “square” officer who lost his temper

only once. That was when he found his men had been taking “souvenirs”

from operations in Lebanon. He put a quick end to what he viewed as



After five years of soldiering Netanyahu returned to America to study

architecture at either Harvard or MIT. He chose the latter because it

permitted him to begin an MA course load, as his academic advisor Prof

Leon Garviser remembers. “I told him that no one could handle the load

but he insisted that he had to make up for time lost while serving his

country. I agreed to add one extra course in the first semester and

when he passed all his courses I added another one. In the end he

finished his MA in two and a half years. Don’t ask me how. No one did

it before him or since.”


Once again, Netanyahu interrupted his studies only once. In October of

1973, war broke out in Israel and he flew back to fight in the Sinai.

When he returned, he became a student activist on behalf of Israel, a

fact that was noted by the Israeli consul of Boston, Collette Avital.

In one of the many ironies in his life, it was Avital, the dovish

consul of New York during the Rabin/Peres administration who arranged

Netanyahu’s first television appearance, a debate with PLO activist

Prof Edward Said.


The loss of his brother Yoni during the Entebbe raid put a stop to

Binyamin’s plans to become an architect. Instead he settled for an MA

in business administration and took a post at the Boston Consulting

Group. His boss was Ira Magaziner, the man who later was the

intellectual force behind the Clinton administration’s failed health

reform package.


As Moshe Arens notes, “Bibi is only the second prime minister who ever

had a real job outside the army or politics. Shamir was the first. He

once worked as an accountant in a glue factory.”


While working at Boston Consulting, Binyamin received his first

diplomatic assignment: he was sent to Sweden to advise the government

on efficient administration of public companies.


Already earning $100,000 and with a splendid career before him,

Netanyahu decided to give it all up and return to Israel to act as the

marketing manager of a furniture concern. As his colleague Barbara

Maclogan notes,”Anyone who claims Bibi planned to live in America

doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He gave up the opportunity of his

life in Boston to earn a quarter of his salary in Israel.”


In 1979, Netanyahu organized an anti-terrorism conference in Jerusalem,

dedicated to his fallen brother. Somehow, he managed to attract the

likes of George Bush, George Shultz, and Richard Perle (President’s

Reagan’s chief arms negotiator) to the meeting and was thrust briefly

onto the world stage. But when the conference ended, it was back to

work at the furniture factory.


That all changed in 1982, when Israel’s Washington Ambassador Moshe

Arens invited Netanyahu to be his deputy. This unprecedented career

rise has been a subject of much speculation. Many people have noted

that Bar Tzion Netanyahu was one of the few guests invited to Arens’

wedding and he was repaying an old friend. But Arens has a different

explanation. “People got a good laugh when they heard I phoned a

furniture factory to find a deputy. What sold me on Bibi was his

organization of the anti-terror conference and the strong impression he

made on American leaders who participated.”


In 1984, after two visibly successful years as Arens’ deputy, Bibi was

named Israel’s ambassador to the UN. In another of those ironies that

follow him, he was appointed to the post by Shimon Peres against the

objections of Yitzhak Shamir. Once again, it was a leader of the Labour

Party who promoted his early career.


This was the true turning point in his quest to become prime minister.

Netanyahu’s good looks, fluent English and controversial opinions made

him a media star. He became a frequent presence on Ted Koppel’s

Nightline and Larry King Live. As King observes,”Whenever he appeared,

the phones wouldn’t stop ringing. He especially made an impression on

women viewers. As a guest I’d rate him 8. If he had a sense of humor to

go with everything else, he’d have been a 10.”


During this period, Netanyahu wrote his book, Terror-How The West Can

Win. The book made a tremendous impression on the Reagan

administration. In fact, whenever George Bush visited New York, and

that was often, he would call on Netanyahu.


By 1988, Netanyahu had made powerful allies in the American media. He

received strong support from Charles Krauthammer of the Washington

Post, Abe Rosenthal of the New York Times, and Ellie Weymouth, daughter

of Katherine Graham, the publisher of Newsweek. When he returned to

Israel, he was too powerful a figure to be ignored and was appointed,

first Deputy Foreign Minister and later the Prime Minister’s spokesman.

In this capacity, CNN made Netanyahu an international media star during

the Persian Gulf War.


Netanyahu was ready to challenge the Old Guard of the Likud. The

combination of youth, determination and powerful allies abroad led to a

resounding victory in the Likud primaries of 1993 and in the general

elections of 1996.

The Secret Life Of Binyamin Netanyahu


Even within the conventional story, it is clear that Netanyahu was

groomed for leadership by the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) in New

York. In 1979, twenty-seven year old Netanyahu called a conference on

terrorism and the ruling elite of the CFR, Bush, Shultz and Perle

answered to his summons. One word will suffice: why?


Yoni Netanyahu was undoubtedly a martyr but far from the only one in

Israel. He was not such a powerful symbol that the CFR would send a

delegation of its biggest guns, including CIA director Bush to his

unknown brother’s get-together.


Netanyahu’s decision to quit his lucrative Boston job is almost

inexplcable. Netanyahu sought a highpaying job at a prestigious

consulting firm yet not two months later, he gave it up to fly back to

Israel and sell sofas. He was barely settled in back home when he

decided to organize an anti-terrorism conference and invite the most

powerful people in Washington to attend.


It is possible that Netanyahu was told to quit his job, return to

Israel and arrange the conference. Perhaps there is a connection to the

fact that a year later Shultz later made fighting terrorism a first

priority of the Reagan administration and that Vice-President Bush was

appointed to head a front for illegal covert activities called The

Anti-Terror Task Force.


Arens’ offer of a deputy ambassadorship to salesman Netanyahu

made no political sense. Israeli diplomatic aides and deputies

typically rise slowly through the Foreign Ministry bureaucracy. They

are not thrust into the second highest position at the most vital

embassy in the world. It is far from impossible that Arens was

directed to bring in Netanyahu by the very people in the Reagan

administration who attended his conference three years earlier.


Once in New York in 1984, CFR-affiliated media such as CNN, the New

York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek and CFR members Koppel and King

turned Netanyahu into a major political figure; so much so that George

Shultz became a close friend. We again ask the succinct question: why?

What did Shultz, twenty years Netanyahu’s senior, find so amusing about

the Israeli UN Ambassador that he had to pay him a courtesy call every

time he flew to New York? In 1985, Shultz chaired another Netanyahu-

organized conference on terrorism, this time in Washington. The

resulting publicity and prestige was a significant factor in

Netanyahu’s fast-rising political career. Clearly, the secretary-of-

state had a major stake in Netanyahu’s future. Which means, so did

George Bush.


All that can be concluded from the conventional story. What then do we

make of Bibi’s secret life?


In 1987, Netanyahu applied for credit using his American social

security number 020364537. With that number, he or someone else made

the application under a phony name, John Sullivan, living at a false

address in Northern California.


Netanyahu used Sullivan’s name to borrow money during 1987-88. John

Sullivan does not exist, nor does Netanyahu’s credit file. Israeli and

American reporters who tried to dig into Netanyahu’s past using his

social security number discovered two other phony names used to apply

for credit in 1987-88 but were perplexed to find that his credit

records were completely removed. Only someone very high up in the

American government could have authorized the erasing of the file.


We return to the all-purpose question: why? Again, no one who knows is

talking. What is nearly certain is that while Netanyahu was the UN

Ambassador, he was either defrauding a credit company or on an

assignment involving money that required three identity changes.


Then there is Netanyahu’s close relationship with Congressman Ben

Gillman, head of the House Committee On International Relations. The

problem here is that Gillman was also a close associate of Shabtai

Kalmonovitch and shared business deals with him in Africa. Kalmonovitch

was, not long after, imprisoned in Israel as a KGB spy. This is not to

imply that Netanyahu was involved in spying, only that his closest ally

in Congress has mighty strange intelligence ties to Israel.


And what to make of the mystery of Netanyahu’s housing?. Before he was

even the leader of the Likud, two foreign businessmen, Jack Mandel of

Australia and Sandy Eisenstadt of the US each paid about $750,000 to

buy Netanyahu luxury apartments in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Again, no

one has a clue why. There is speculation that part of the reason may be

Eisenstadt’s stake in an Israeli oil exploration company, a shady and

hidden business, but no concrete connection has been discovered by the

Israeli media.


Netanyahu’s penchant for secrecy is not subtle. It is well-known among

the Israeli media that he had conducted a number of secret meetings

with the Jordanian royal family in London and Amman before he became

prime minister. Even the conventional Jerusalem Post reported in mid-

June that six secret meetings were held in the past two years. But when

Inside Israel just before the elections asked Netanyahu to comment on

the meetings, he denied they had ever taken place.


Perhaps the most secret and worrying ties concern what is supposedly a

high-tech services company. Yediot Ahronot relates how Netanyahu wooed

a local Likud leader. “He was invited by Netanyahu to a meeting in his

office at Systematics in Ramat Gan. The head of the company, Oded

Levental is a candidate for a financial post in the new government.”


Systematics is at the core of serious research by American alternative

publications, including the usually reliable Media Bypass. In short,

the allegations are that the National Security Agency had handed

Systematics stolen software called Promis that opened a trap door to

the world’s secret banking transactions. About 250 Americans, mostly

politicians, had their illegal foreign accounts emptied of over $3.5

billion in the operation. It is claimed that Colin Powell dropped out

of the presidential race after his account electronically vanished.

Leading figures in the operation included George Bush, Caspar

Weinberger and two Arkansas attorneys, Vince Foster Jr. and Hillary

Rodham Clinton on behalf of Clinton financier Jackson Stephens. The

research invariably concludes that Foster was murdered because he knew

too much about the scam.


A leading investigative writer, Sherman Skolnick, writes:


“Some contend Systematics is an NSA proprietary and spies on banks

overseas. Can Systematics rightfully deny spying actually done by

buffers or cut-outs between Systematics and NSA? Systematics, through a

spokesperson, vigorously denies Foster assisted it in any spying on

foreign banks but remains apparently silent on whether Hillary Rodham

Clinton assisted Systematics in some nefarious activities.”


Is it fair to ask why Systematics provided Netanyahu office space and

if this was the sum total of its involvement with him?


Since taking office, Netanyahu has fueled fears of international

control by his actions within Israel’s tiny anti-NWO community. They

were most intrigued by his refusal to give Ariel Sharon a sensitive

cabinet post. One possible reason is fear of Sharon’s own intelligence

arm in the US. Then for those people who fervently hoped that he would

rid himself of any connections to the Arye Deri scandal, with all its

implications of money laundering and perhaps murder, Netanyahu

appointed as his Justice Minister, Yaacov Neeman, a lawyer who is

currently being investigated for intimidating a key witness against

Deri in a London trial.


But the topper was Netanyahu’s decision to allow Yaacov Frenkel to run

the country’s economy single-handedly. Frenkel worked for the World

Bank between 1971-1990. After nineteen years away from “home” Frenkel

was unexplainedly appointed head of the Bank of Israel.


His policies mirrored the world-wide debt program of his previous

employer documented by numerous researchers. The plan involves raising

interest rates beyond what the public or industry can afford, and

forcing the government to borrow lots of money from American banks to

keep the populace pacified. When the debts have to be repaid from an

empty treasury, the International Monetary Fund bails out the country

with schemes guaranteed to impoverish the people.


Frenkel was a proponent of Israel borrowing $10 billion in loans

guaranteed by the American government and he kept his interest rates as

high as he could in the face of opposition from then-Finance Minister

Avraham Shohat who suspected Frenkel, “was playing politics with the

Bank of Israel.”


Binyamin Netanyahu, the man who Inside Israel hoped would save Israel

from the NWO puppet regime of Peres, appointed Yaacov Frenkel to be his

Minister of Finance. The only thing that prevented the disaster was

party opposition to an appointee who had never publicly supported the



Dan Meridor got the post instead. But as the Maariv headline read:

“Meridor Will Act, Frenkel Will Lead.” On his first day in office

Meridor announced that his policy would be to lower the standard of

living in Israel. Not a week later, Frenkel raised the interest rates

by a whopping 1.5% with Meridor’s “approval.”


Something is going on behind the scenes at the CFR. While Secretary of

State Warren Christopher must appear to be opposing Likud government

policies to keep the Arabs in line, the former CFR director is playing

some kind of double game with Netanyahu.


King Hussein made his accommodation with Netanyahu well before the

elections and refused to support Peres during the campaign. Netanyahu’s

victory clearly delighted him and on the surface, why not? The last

thing he would want is a PLO state on his border with control of the

Moslem holy sites. In time, it will become clearer what Netanyahu

promised the King during the secret London meetings. Included, most

assuredly, will be Jordanian hegemony over the Temple Mount.


There has been a transformation in Israel but the CFR is still running

the latest prime minister. And that is a good reason for intense fear

about Israel’s future.
