BUSH'S ISRAELI LOBBY ADVISORS
The reality of the situation is that no one in
Washington, whether in the Pentagon (top military brass, joint
chiefs, etc) or in Congress, wants this Israeli proxy war against
Iraq. Only those connected to the Israeli lobby want this
It is very important to know the identity of these
within the administration in order to
understand who is behind this
war-mongering and realizing that is
serving Israeli interests, not American interests.
unfortunate that Bush has picked these people to these top posts.
The sad fact for him is that in the instant that he decides not to
go to war against Iraq, the Israeli lobby will bring him down, like
they did to his father, a decade earlier.
Note: The Washington Institute for Near East Policy is one of the
Israeli lobby's "think tank." Many of the Israeli lobby's "experts"
come from this front group, like Martin Indyk.
1). Richard Perle----One of Bush's foreign policy advisors, he is
chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. A very
likely Israeli government agent, Perle was expelled from Senator
Henry Jackson's office in the 1970's after the National Security
Agency (NSA) caught him passing Highly-Classified (National
Security) documents to the Israeli Embassy. He later worked for the
Israeli weapons firm, Soltam. Perle is one of the leading
pro-Israeli fanatics leading this Iraq war mongering within the
administration and now in the media.
2). Paul Wolfowitz----Deputy Defense Secretary, and member of
Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close
associate of Perle, and reportedly has close ties to the Israeli
military. His sister lives in Israel. Wolfowitz is the number two
leader within the administration behind this Iraq war mongering.
3). Douglas Feith----Under Secretary of Defense and Policy
Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close associate of Perle and served
as his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others, Feith is a
pro-Israel extremist, who has advocated anti-Arab policies in the
past. He is closely associated with the extremist group, the Zionist
Organization of America, which even attacks Jews that don't agree
with its extremist views. Feith frequently speaks at ZOA
conferences. Feith runs a small law firm, Feith and Zell, which only
International office, in Israel. The majority of their
legal work is
representing Israeli interests. His firm's own
website stated, prior to his appointment, that Feith "represents
Israeli Armaments Manufacturer." Feith basically represents the
Israeli War Machine. Feith, like Perle and Wolfowitz, are
campaigning hard for this Israeli proxy war against Iraq.
4). Edward Luttwak----Member of the National Security Study Group
of the Department of Defence at the Pentagon. Luttwak is reportedly
an Israeli citizen and has taught in Israel. He frequently writes
for Israeli and pro-Israeli newspapers and journals. Luttwak is an
Israeli extremist whose main theme in many of his articles is the
necessity of the U.S. waging war against Iraq.
5). Henry Kissinger-----One of many Pentagon Advisors, Kissinger
sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle. For
detailed information about Kissinger's evil past, read Seymour
Hersch's book (Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House).
Kissinger had a part in the Watergate crimes,
Southeast Asia mass
murders, Chile dictatorship, and more recently served as Serbian
Dictator Slobodan Milosevic's Advisor. He consistently advocates
going to war against Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of the
6). Dov Zakheim----Under Secretary of Defense, Comptroller, and
Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the Department of Defense. He is
an ordained rabbi and reportedly holds Israeli citizenship. Zakheim
attended attended Jew's College in London and became an ordained
Orthodox Jewish Rabbi in 1973. He was adjunct professor at New
York's Jewish Yeshiva University. Zakheim is close to the Israeli
7). Kenneth Adelman-----One of many Pentagon Advisors, Adelman
also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle, and is
another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supports going to war
against Iraq. Adelman frequently is a guest on Fox News, and often
expresses extremist and often ridiculus anti-Arab and anti-Muslim
views. Through his hatred or stupidity, he actually called Arabs
"anti-Semitic" on Fox News (11/28/2001), when he
looked it up in the dictionary to find out that Arabs
definition are Semites.
8). I. Lewis Libby -----Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief of
Staff. The chief pro-Israel Jewish advisor to Cheney, it helps
explains why Cheney is so gun-ho to invade Iraq. Libby is longtime
associate of Wolfowitz. Libby was also a lawyer for convicted felon
and Israeli spy Mark Rich, whom Clinton pardoned, in his last days
9). Robert Satloff----U.S. National Security Council Advisor,
Satloff was the executive director of the Israeli lobby's "think
tank," Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Many of the
Israeli lobby's "experts" come from this front group, like Martin
10). Elliott Abrams-----National Security Council Advisor. He
previously worked at Washington-based "Think Tank" Ethics and Public
Policy Center. During the Reagan Adminstration, Abrams was the
Assistant Secretary of State,handling, for the most part, Latin
American affairs. He played an important role in the Iran-Contra
Scandal, which involved illegally selling U.S. weapons to Iran to
fight Iraq, and illegally funding the contra rebels fighting to
overthrow Nicaragua's Sandinista government. He also actively
deceived three congressional committees about his involvement and
faced felony charges based on his testimony. Abrams pled
guilty in 1991 to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year's
probation and 100 hours of community service. A year later, former
President Bush (Senior) granted Abrams a full pardon. He was one of
the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in the Reagan Administration's
11). Marc Grossman-----Under Secretary of State for Political
Affairs. He was Director General of the Foreign Service and Director
of Human Resources at the Department of State. Grossman is one of
many of the pro-Israel Jewish officials from the Clinton
Administration that Bush has promoted to higher posts.
12). Richard Haass-----Director of Policy Planning at the State
Department and Ambassador at large. He is also Director of National
Security Programs and Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign
Relations (CFR). He was one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in
the first Bush (Sr) Administration who sat on the National Security
Council, and who consistently advocates going
to war against
Iraq. Haass is also a member of the Defense Department's National
Security Study Group, at the Pentagon.
13). Robert Zoellick-----U.S. Trade Representative, a
position.He is also one of the more hawkish
pro-Israel Jews in the Bush (Jr) Administration who advocated
invading Iraq and occupying a portion of the country in order to set
up setting up a Vichy-style puppet government. He consistently
advocates going to war against Iraq.
14). Ari Fleischer----Official White House Spokesman for the Bush
(Jr) Administration. Prominent in the Jewish community, some reports
state that he holds Israeli citizenship. Fleischer is closely
connected to the extremist Jewish group called the Chabad Lubavitch
Hasidics, who follow the Qabala, and hold very extremist and
insulting views of non-Jews. Fleischer was the co-president of
Chabad's Capitol Jewish Forum. He received the Young
Award from the American Friends of Lubavitch in October, 2001.
15). James Schlesinger-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Schlesinger also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under
Perle and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supports
going to war against Iraq. Schlesinger is also a commissioner of the
Defense Department's National Security Study Group, at the

32). Colin Powell-----Secretary of State, ex-chairman of Joint
Chiefs of Staff, of Jamaican origin, he has one Jewish ancestor on
his father's side. He grew up in a heavily Jewish-populated
neighborhood in New York, and speaks Yiddish. The first day of being
picked (12/16/2000) he said he wanted to toughen sanctions on Iraq,
and will work to "re-energize the sanctions regime," even though he
knows the embargo has killed 2 million Iraqi civilians.
Now that Bush has hired these pro-Israel Jewish lobbyists to the
highest positions in the land, they have escalated the fanatical
war-mongering against Iraq, all the while they support the Israeli
war-criminal Sharon in his terrorism and mass-killings of
Palestinian civilians. It seems that the price of the acheiving the
White House involves selling out to the Israeli lobby, much like
Clinton, before him.
There are some hopeful signs coming out of the adminstration,
however. Despite this strong pro-Israeli presence within the
administration, it seems that Bush has not yet jumped on their
band-wagon, and instead is listening to the sensible leaders and
advisors, like the Pentagon's military brass, the U.S. intelligence
community, other groups within the federal government, as well as
from America's friends and allies around the world. No one wants
war except Israel, its agents, and its lobbies around the

Iraq, like they used Monica Lewinsky against Clinton to force him to
launch "Operation Desert Fox," in December 1998? Watch how many of

What Bush needs to do is use some common sense, and have some
courage to stand up to these pro-Israel bullies, and act in the best
interests of America, and not Israel. The first act for Bush should
