Spy claims Israel assassinated JFK
WorldNetDaily ^ | 7/25/04 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 07/25/2004 7:06:08 PM PDT by wagglebee

Freed Israeli nuclear spy Mordechai Vanunu said in an interview published today that Israel was behind the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, prompting some Israeli officials to hope aloud the far-fetched comments will hurt Vanunu's credibility.

Vanunu, a former nuclear technician who was recently released from Israeli prison after serving an 18-year sentence for exposing Israel's nuclear program at Dimona to Britain's Sunday Times, has been barred from leaving the country, talking to the media or meeting with foreigners.

But the London-based al-Hayat newspaper published an interview yesterday it claims is the first Vanunu has given, in which the spy said that according to "near-certain indications," Kennedy was assassinated due to "pressure he exerted on then head of government, David Ben-Gurion, to shed light on Dimona's nuclear reactor."

"We do not know which irresponsible Israeli prime minister will take office and decide to use nuclear weapons in the struggle against neighboring Arab countries," Vanunu was quoted as saying. "What has already been exposed about the weapons Israel is holding can destroy the region and kill millions."

Vanunu, who would not be in a position to know the current security apparatus of Israel's nuclear plant, also claims the Middle East is at risk of a "second Chernobyl" in the event of an accident at the Dimona plant. He said an earthquake could cause fissures to the core that would create a massive radiation leak "threatening millions."

Jordan should test residents in the border regions with Israel to be sure that they have not already been exposed to any radiation and administer the necessary medicine, Venunu said. He also criticized the visit to Israel early this month by the head of the Atomic Energy Agency, Mohammed el-Baradei.

"He (Baradei) should have refused to have visited Israel (because) he was not allowed to inspect the nuclear reactor," Vanunu said.

According to al-Hayat, Vanunu now lives "with his Palestinian friends" in east Jerusalem.

Israeli officials would not comment on what actions they would take against Vanunu, who had agreed as part of the terms of his release, that he would not grant media interviews.

"The opinions on Vanunu are divided," Ra'anan Gissin, a spokesman for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, told reporters. "Some say let him speak and it adds to the ambiguity policy, while others say the more he speaks the more he raises tensions, particularly in the current atmosphere."

Gissin said Vanunu's comments regarding JFK work to discredit the former spy. "This is something you would expect from [Yasser] Arafat," Gissin said.

Separately, an Israeli source told WorldNetDaily that after the Kennedy assassination, Israeli intelligence carried out an exercise to see how shooter Lee Harvey Oswald, who used a mail-order, clip-fed 6.5mm rifle, was able to kill Kennedy from his angle on the sixth floor of a nearby building.

The simulation exercise reportedly featured expert marksmen using more powerful equipment set up on tripods and utilized a laser direction-finder to show where the people in Kennedy's car would have been hit after the marksmen fired. The source said the exercise showed it was "nearly impossible for Oswald to have done what he did."

Either this guy is a raving lunatic, or Israel has done a very good job of keeping a secret for 41 years.

Ah, no. The Israelis would not be operating the junk that was the Chernobyl plant. The guy is a lunatic.

According to al-Hayat, Vanunu now lives "with his Palestinian friends" in east Jerusalem.

He should be allowed to die with them too. As an American taxpayer I hope it is an Apache missile which does the job.

Moses Moses

King of the Jews

Walked on his hands

To save his shoes.

Fight Fight Fight

For Palestine.

But there was a mighty football game

In Heavens own backyard

Jesus was the Quarterback

And Moses was the Guard

The Angels in the grandstand

Gave Out A Mighty Yell

When Jesus scored a touchdown

And beat those boys from Hell.

Stay with God Stay with God

Big G little o d

Stay with God

Why is he called "spy"? Properly speaking, he was a "leaker". He has not been working for intelligence agencies, has he?

And what is the point of keeping him there? What he did know, he has already leaked. What he has not leaked, would be 20 yrs out of date by now. After 18(?) yrs of solitary, he now pours out JFK conspiracies. So why even bother keeping him there, preventing press contacts etc.?

. . . Vanunu now lives "with his Palestinian friends" . . .

Oh, yeah, well then I guess he's above reproach and has a lot of credibility, doesn't he? </sarcasm>

which irresponsible Israeli prime minister will take office and decide to use nuclear weapons

It wouldn't be so simple. The PM wouldn't personally have his finger on the trigger, and those who may, know their responsibility.

Yep. You know why? Sirhan Sirhan was an Arab immigrant (a Palestinian or Jordanian I think) and he was angry at RFK for his support of Israel.

A quote from commedienne Paula Poundstone:

You know, Sirhan Sirhan's been in the news lately. He's been claiming that he's served enough of his sentance, and should be released. The parole board disagrees.

In a statement, Sirhan claimed that "if Robert Kenedy were alive today, he'd speak on my behalf!"

"Talk about the rotten luck! The one guy in the world that wou be a character witness for Sirhan Sirhan, and he assasinates him!

Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy, the only question I have is did he have help? I'm convinced he did but that Israel might be involved somehow is new to me and unhighly unbelievable. It was most likely the Cubans.

And next we'll be hearing from Mark David Chapman that if John Lennon were alive today he'd be speaking on his behalf.

These guys are nutcases, they should have gotten the chair instead of taxpayers being forced to subsidize their pitiful existence.
