Despite government insistence that no such photographs exist, some three years ago, I received a dozen photos of the backstage "sterile area" two minutes before and immediately after Yigal Amir shot his blanks at Yitzhak Rabin. The photos were acquired partly by chicanery, which some day I'll explain, and partly through a reliable source. One series of photos shows Shimon Peres conducting his nefarious murder plot stage by stage. Not one magazine or major internet site has ever published these shots and I can only guess why.
Another photo shows the moment Yigal Amir was arrested. The arresting officer's watch captures the exact time of the arrest; 9:31. The watch was blown up and highlighted before I released it and it was reprinted in dozens of Israeli magazines and websites alongside the conclusion of the Shamgar Commission that Rabin was shot at 9:50. The implication was clear to everyone; If Shamgar was telling the truth, which he wasn't, Amir was under arrest 19 minutes before Rabin was shot. Some alibi! In fact, Shamgar deliberately falsified the time of the shooting to protect Rabin's driver, who, otherwise, would have been driving for 22 minutes to complete the 2 minute hop to Ichilov Hospital. Previously, this photo had already been published in Yediot Achronot, the country's most popular newspaper, without anyone understanding the implications.
On November 3, '05, Israel's second tv channel broadcast a breakthrough documentary proving Rabin was shot a third time from the front. This was my claim of eight years and it appeared to vindicate my work. But the film's director, Naftali Glicksberg, could not allow that to happen. During the roundtable discussion which followed the screening, he viciously attacked my integrity without naming me. The photo of the arrest was a complete fabrication, he said, and someone, which had to be me, changed the watch to read 9:31 when in fact, in the original shot, the watch read 9:53. Some claim since my source never fabricated evidence and I sure didn't.
And this lie began gaining currency. A few days later I met a youthful reporter from Makor Rishon who was covering the Rabin murder conspiracy and offered him the full set of pictures. Young Jimmy Olsen of Makor Rishon turned down the offer claiming I had no right to offer the photos for publication, like they were copyrighted by the Shabak, and anyway, I had fabricated the watch shot.
The next week I was interviewed at great length by a genuine reporter, Yonathan Gat, of Israel's People magazine, Anashim. This publication is popular among the nation's media crowd and yuppies and the result was highly professional. For one thing, the magazine became the first to publish two of the backstage shots.
During the course of the three day interview, I received a visit from two gentlemen, today respected physicians, who in their youth briefly dabbled with Avishai Raviv. Raviv, as we know, has disappeared from Israel and no one knows where to find him. Except they spotted him in Budapest, Hungary working as a senior citizens' helper. I gave Gat the scoop and his magazine turned to the Shabak and asked its spokesman if the information was accurate. The Shabak refused to respond.
Gat then turned to a sensitive issue. He played me the tape of Glicksburg calling the watch photo a fabrication and asked for my reaction. Since I didn't fabricate it, I suggested that he contact the photographer. That could be done by phoning the photo dept. of Yediot Achronot. He did so and was greeted with hostility. The man on the phone was sick of fielding inquiries about the photo from journalists. The photo, though, was no longer in the Yediot archives but when it was there, the watch read 9:50.
So Gat took the next obvious step; he asked for the photographer's name and phone number. The name was Pablo Bichman but no number existed because Bichman committed suicide a few years ago, about the time I first released his watch shot.
My, my. Another "suicide" around Rabin. He joins such august company as three of Rabin's bodyguards, the Bar Ilan student David Newman, who on the night of the murder sent an e-mail with his suspicions about Amir to newsgroups, and Avishai Raviv's Russian companion, one Ariel, who "jumped" to his death from a building in Dimona. One can only imagine what Pablo Bichman's lens captured that led to his early demise.
Gat quizzed Oren Agmon, head of Yediot's photo bureau and he told him, "The real picture shows the watch at 9:50. Pablo Bichman left the paper well before he killed himself. Any attempt to connect the photo with a conspiracy about his suicide is ridiculous."
The Anashim article is essential reading about the Rabin assassination and treats me more than fairly. It's on the kiosk and supermarket stands until Dec. 6. Israeli readers, if you can't find it, order by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03 6275566.
Those of you who listened to my interview on the Tamar Yonah show last week, may have noticed in my overview of the Vatican's recent attempts to acquire Jerusalem's holy sites, that I insisted the whole Middle East "peace" process is being manipulated through the Vatican via King Juan Carlos of Spain. The day after the interview, coincidentally the day Sharon broke up the Likud, guess who called Arik?
Former Labor chairman Shimon Peres is close to making a decision to leave Labor for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's new Kadima party, sources close to Peres and Sharon said on Sunday night.
Sharon spoke to Peres more than once on Sunday and he offered him to return to his cabinet post of vice premier with additional responsibility over negotiations with the Palestinians and the peace process. "If Peres does not announce his decision on Monday, it will have to wait until Wednesday when he returns from a trip to Spain."
(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon spoke this evening (Tuesday), 22.11.05, with Spanish King Juan Carlos I de Bourbon, who had telephoned in order to ask him to attend the gathering to mark the 10th anniversary of the Barcelona Conference. The Spanish monarch said many European and Arab leaders - such as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali - will attend and emphasized that Prime Minister Sharon’s participation would be very important for advancing relations between Israel and Arab countries. The Spanish King reiterated the international community’s high esteem for the Prime Minister and the steps he has taken in the framework of the Disengagement Plan. Prime Minister Sharon thanked Spanish King Juan Carlos I and said that he would be happy to attend but will be unable to do so in light of the domestic political situation. The Prime Minister said that he decided to bring the elections forward, quit his party and establish a new party in order to advance the things he believes in.
Prime Minister Sharon said that after the elections he would be happy to visit Spain and meet with the King. The Prime Minister invited the Spanish monarch to visit Israel.
From the first day of the Gush Katif expulsion, I warned my readers that the government would crush the refugees and give them nothing but empty promises. I insisted they had to fight for their rights immediately or they would suffer catastrophe. I further warned, that anyone who propped up their misery through charity would be dooming the refugees to permanent poverty. I wish it wasn't true, but all media reports illustrate that in just three months, the once thriving residents of Gush Katif have sunk into violence, despair, divorce, drug abuse, crime and hopelessness. So keep on giving til it hurts and liberate the Yesha Council and government from any responsibility for their recklessness.
Yesha Council´s Disengagement Struggle Advisor to Head DM Mofaz´s Campaign to Lead Likud 21:21 Nov 27, '05 / 25 Cheshvan 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Political advisor to the Yesha Council (of Judea and Samaria communities), Yuval Porat, will head Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz's campaign to head the Likud Party. Porat served as advisor to the Yesha Council over the past year and was one of the leading strategists behind the campaign against the Disengagement Plan – ostensibly out of ideological identification with the cause.
He said Sunday that after deep internal ideological conflict he decided to help Mofaz, even though the Defense Minister was one of the main backers of the expulsion of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria.
Sometimes I have to wonder Who is guiding this upsetting work of mine. My readers have no idea how close this whole enterprise came to a complete collapse. My printer almost bankrupted me.
Publishers have deceived me time after time and I got the hint a few years ago that I could only trust myself to print and sell my books. For these past few years, I would give my printer a security check, sell the books, repay him, he would rip up the check and we would begin the process again. Two months ago, I received a court order to repay a substantial debt I had accumulated. For the previous few payments, the printer did not destroy the security checks after I covered them. In fact, he cashed them a second time in what is known here as the grey market. Abroad, this market is known as loan sharks.
In short, out of nowhere I was being hounded daily by the mafia.
The printer was well aware that he had acted illegally, but didn't have the funds to extricate himself, let alone me, from the quagmire. I went to the police and reported the fraud and hired a lawyer. He told me there was only one way out for both me and the printer. I would have to buy the the printer's stock of books and he would repay the thugs.
If I didn't, not only would I be forced to pay a debt I didn't accumulate, I wouldn't have any books to sell. I would be required to reprint everything anew at a cost well beyond what was remotely possible for me. So I agreed to the proposal, not knowing if I could actually raise the funds.
Last week, I was down to one copy of Save Israel, and not a baker's dozen of Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust in either Hebrew or English. The situation was even worse with the Last Days Of Israel in both languages. Unless I came up with a significant chunk of money within a few days, I would have to shut down for good.
Last Sunday, a gentleman named Natan called me. He does not want to be named beyond that. I can say he is a gifted musician and lyricist. He wanted to meet me in Jerusalem and said he had a little gift for me. I liked the man and agreed to meet him, expecting a modest token of appreciation.
All I can say is, it wasn't modest. I was a third of the way to saving my little enterprise.
On Thursday, I was in despair. I still couldn't find the rest. I was sure the end would come the following week. I would have to inform my readers that I had no more books, couldn't afford to reprint and would have to abandon ship. I had survived by a thread's breadth until now and now I was in too deep to climb back out.
On Friday a letter came from Brian Shultz of New Jersey. It simply read, "A contribution." It was the biggest contribution I had ever received. It was unsolicited. And it covered the debt TO THE EXACT PENNY.
And that has to be divine intervention. I am certain Brian and Natan were guided and will be rewarded, even if my only show of gratitude is to keep on writing for them and for Israel.
I now have an apartment stacked with books. My mood is giddy. My benefactors want my word out. Write me and I'll send my last three Hebrew books to you for sixty shekels. That is, The Last Days Of Israel, Save Israel and Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust in one package for the equivalent of $4. each. Give them to people who still haven't caught on.
For non-Israelis, it's a bit tougher to be kind. The same package of three English books costs over $12 to ship if the heavy Save Israel! is in the envelope, about $8 if not. But I'll send 3 books for $30 including postage. The choices are Save Israel!, Shabtai Tzvi Labor Zionism And The Holocaust, The Last Days Of Israel, Israel Betrayed or Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin.
I can only do this for a week. Help clear my apartment of these stacks of books. Next week, it's business as usual.
As always, my books Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin; Israel Betrayed, Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust; The Last Days Of Israel; and Save Israel!, as well as my videos and CDS, The Dirty Secrets Of Oslo are available by writing me at email@example.com. BarryChamish.com
