JFK’s Letter to Eshkol About Dimona

Dear Mr. Prime Minister [Eshkol]:

It gives me great personal pleasure to extend congratulations as you assume your responsibilities as Prime Minister of Israel. You have our friendship and best wishes in your new tasks. It is on one of these that I am writing you at this time.

You are aware, I am sure, of the exchange which I had with Prime Minister Ben-Gurion concerning American visits to Israel’s nuclear facility at Dimona. Most recently, the Prime Minister wrote to me on May 27. His words reflected a most intense personal consideration of a problem that I know is not easy for your Government, as it is not for mine. We welcomed the former Prime Minister’s strong reaffirmation that Dimona will be devoted exclusively to peaceful purposes and the reaffirmation also of Israel’s willingness to permit periodic visits to Dimona.

I regret having to add to your burdens so soon after your assumption of office, but I feel the crucial importance of this problem necessitates my taking up with you at this early date certain further considerations, arising out of Mr. Ben-Gurion’s May 27 letter, as to the nature and scheduling of such visits.

I am sure you will agree that these visits should be as nearly as possible in accord with international standards, thereby resolving all doubts as to the peaceful intent of the Dimona project. As I wrote Mr. Ben-Gurion, this Government’s commitment to and support of Israel could be seriously jeopardized if it should be thought that we were unable to obtain reliable information on a subject as vital to the peace as the question of Israel’s effort in the nuclear field.

Therefore, I asked our scientists to review the alternative schedules of visits we and you had proposed. If Israel’s purposes are to be clear beyond reasonable doubt, I believe that the schedule which would best serve our common purposes would be a visit early this summer, another visit in June 1964, and thereafter at intervals of six months. I am sure that such a schedule should not cause you any more difficulty than that which Mr. Ben-Gurion proposed in his May 27 letter. It would be essential, and I understand that Mr. Ben-Gurion’s letter was in accord with this, that our scientist have access to all areas of the Dimona site and to any related part of the complex, such as fuel fabrication facilities or plutonium separation plant, and that sufficient time to be allotted for a thorough examination.

Knowing that you fully appreciate the truly vital significance of this matter to the future well-being of Israel, to the United States, and internationally, I am sure our carefully considered request will have your most sympathetic attention.


John F. Kennedy

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) maintains a site on Israel’s Nuclear Weapons buildup. “FAS was founded in 1945 by many of the scientists who built the first atomic bombs…and is devoted to the belief that scientists, engineers, and other technically trained people have the ethical obligation to ensure that the technological fruits of their intellect and labor are applied to the benefit of humankind. The founding mission was to prevent nuclear war.... Here is an excerpt from its report regarding Dimona...

·         The United States first became aware of Dimona's existence after U-2 overflights in 1958 captured the facility's construction, but it was not identified as a nuclear site until two years later. The complex was variously explained as a textile plant, an agricultural station, and a metallurgical research facility, until David Ben-Gurion stated in December 1960 that Dimona complex was a nuclear research center built for "peaceful purposes."

·         There followed two decades in which the United States, through a combination of benign neglect, erroneous analysis, and successful Israeli deception, failed to discern first the details of Israel's nuclear program. As early as 8 December 1960, the CIA issued a report outlining Dimona's implications for nuclear proliferation, and the CIA station in Tel Aviv had determined by the mid-1960s that the Israeli nuclear weapons program was an established and irreversible fact.

·         United States inspectors visited Dimona seven times during the 1960s, but they were unable to obtain an accurate picture of the activities carried out there, largely due to tight Israeli control over the timing and agenda of the visits. The Israelis went so far as to install false control room panels and to brick over elevators and hallways that accessed certain areas of the facility. The inspectors were able to report that there was no clear scientific research or civilian nuclear power program justifying such a large reactor - circumstantial evidence of the Israeli bomb program - but found no evidence of "weapons related activities" such as the existence of a plutonium reprocessing plant…

·         The key variable that is specific to Israel is the power level of the reactor, which is reported to be at least 75 MWt and possibly as high as 200 MWt. New high-resolution satellite imagery provides important insight this matter. The imagery of the Dimona nuclear reactor was acquired by the Public Eye Project of the Federation of American Scientists from Space Imaging Corporation's IKONOS satellite. The cooling towers associated with the Dimona reactor are clearly visible and identifiable in satellite imagery. Comparison of recently acquired commercial IKONOS imagery with declassified American CORONA reconnaissance satellite imagery indicates that no new cooling towers were constructed in the years between 1971 and 2000. This strongly suggests that the reactor's power level has not been increased significantly during this period. This would suggest an annual production rate of plutonium of about 20 kilograms.

Based on plausible upper and lower bounds of the operating practices at the reactor, Israel could have thus produced enough plutonium for at least 100 nuclear weapons, but probably not significantly more than 200 weapons.

  • While European Jews were in mortal danger, Zionist leaders in America deliberately provoked and enraged Hitler. They began in 1933 by initiating a worldwide boycott of Nazi goods. Dieter von Wissliczeny, Adolph Eichmann's lieutenant, told Rabbi Weissmandl that in 1941 Hitler flew into a rage when U.S. Zionist Rabbi Stephen Wise, in the name of the entire Jewish people, "declared war on Germany". Hitler fell on the floor, bit the carpet and vowed: "Now I'll destroy them. Now I'll destroy them." In Jan. 1942, he convened the "Wannsee Conference" where the "final solution" took shape.

  • Rabbi Shonfeld says the Nazis chose Zionist activists to run the "Judenrats" and to be Jewish police or Kapos. "The Nazis found in these 'elders' what they hoped for, loyal and obedient servants who because of their lust for money and power, led the masses to their destruction." The Zionists were often intellectuals who were often "more cruel than the Nazis" and kept the trains' final destination a secret. In contrast to secular Zionists, Shonfeld says Orthodox Jewish Rabbis refused to collaborate and tended their beleaguered flocks to the end.

  • Rabbi Shonfeld cites numerous instances where Zionists sabotaged attempts to organize resistance, ransom and relief. They undermined an effort by Vladimir Jabotinsky to arm Jews before the war. They stopped a program by American orthodox Jews to send food parcels to the ghettos (where child mortality was 60%) saying it violated the boycott. They thwarted a British parliamentary initiative to send refugees to Mauritius, demanding they go to Palestine instead. They blocked a similar initiative in the US Congress. At the same time, they rescued young Zionists. Chaim Weizmann, the Zionist Chief and later first President of Israel said: "Every nation has its dead in its fight for its homeland. The suffering under Hitler are our dead." He said they "were moral and economic dust in a cruel world."

  • Rabbi Weismandel, who was in Slovakia, provided maps of Auschwitz and begged Jewish leaders to pressure the Allies to bomb the tracks and crematoriums. The leaders didn't press the Allies because the secret policy was to annihilate non-Zionist Jews. The Nazis came to understand that death trains and camps would be safe from attack and actually concentrated industry there. (See also, William Perl, "The Holocaust Conspiracy.')

None of the above is intended to absolve the Nazis of responsibility. However the holocaust could have been prevented or at least alleviated had the Zionist leadership behaved honorably.




Lord Acton said, "The truth will come out when powerful people no longer wish to suppress it." Since Sept. 11, more and more people are turning to the "conspiratorial" or "suppressed" view of history.

In 1891, Cecil Rhodes started a secret society called the "Round Table" dedicated to world hegemony for the shareholders of the Bank of England and their allies. These priggish aristocrats, including the Rothschilds, realized they must control the world to safeguard their monopoly on money creation as well as global resources. The same folks control the U.S. Federal Reserve and other major central banks.

They were united also by a commitment to freemasonry, which at the top, is dedicated to the destruction of Christianity, the worship of Lucifer, and the rebuilding of a pagan temple in Jerusalem. They see most of humanity as "useless eaters" and pioneered eugenics to decrease population and weed out inferior specimens. The eventual annihilation of non-Zionist Jews was rooted in this English movement.

In 1897, the first Zionist Congress took place in Basel. In 1904, the founder of Zionism Theodore Herzl died at age 44 under suspicious circumstances. The movement was taken over by the Round Table. The purpose was to use it and Communism to advance their plan for world hegemony. During the same week in November 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution took place and the Balfour Declaration promised Palestine to the Jews.

The Round Table group planned three world wars to degrade, demoralize and destroy mankind, rendering it defenseless. The Third World War, now beginning, pitted the Zionists against the Muslims.

The purpose of Zionism is to help colonize the Middle East, subvert Islam, and control the oilfields. For this reason Israel continues to receive blank checks. (One analyst estimates the US taxpayer has spent $1.7 trillion on Israel.) This is why the founding of Israel took precedence over the welfare of the Jewish people.

Israel has little to do with the Jewish people. Zionism, Communism, Feminism, Nazism, are all creations of the same satanic cabal. These 'isms are all means to the final goal, a neo feudal global dictatorship.

As unwitting overseers, Israelis will continue as victims of "compulsory suicide." Americans too are being fitted for this role. Sept. 11 was an example.

Arab terrorism is also backed by this cabal. Osama Bin Laden made more than 260 phone calls to England between 1996-1998. The aim is to contrive a "war of civilizations" as an excuse to grind down both Muslim states and the West to create the global police state.

What I have been calling "compulsory suicide" is satanic "culling." The constant reference by Zionist and other leaders to "blood sacrifice" refers to the practice of human sacrifice. Apparently energy is released when people are slaughtered. Recently U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said the Hezbollah owes the U.S. a "blood debt."

Our rulers design wars as offerings to Lucifer. They find slaughter and mayhem exhilarating, as long as it is someone else who is sacrificed.




For millennia, Jews owed their survival to their devotion to "Torah." In the last century they have forsaken this portable spiritual home, and placed their faith in a tangible one, Israel.

Unfortunately, they have been duped.

Israelis are becoming overseers in the global plantation. American Jews, prominent in media, education, government and finance, are also instruments. They will take the blame for the real culprits, the shareholders of the world's major central banks.

Mankind has been betrayed by its leadership. Of Jewish leadership, Israeli journalist Barry Chamish says: "The richest appoint themselves to the highest posts. Thus the greediest and most unscrupulous run the show. [They] ... will sell their souls and those of their people for power and acclaim." See Barry Chamish "Just as Scared, Just as Doomed."

There are a few hundred thousand orthodox Jews like Rabbi Shonfeld who have always understood Zionism. They have always rejected the state of Israel and remained faithful to the Torah. They could form a core for a genuine Jewish revival. Their websites are, and

In conclusion, a satanic cult governs the world. These people hate God and mankind and want to destroy it. They believe the end justifies the means and are ruthless. They use the Jews, and everyone else, as cannon fodder. We are "children of the matrix," duped, distracted, stunted and sacrificed.

Without the vision provided by God, we are lambs being led to slaughter.


Holohoax 101 - The Fundamentals of the Holocaust Hoax The First Holohoax, During World War One

The book The First Holocaust, Jewish Fund Raising Campaigns with Holocaust Claims During and After World War One by Don Heddeshemimer is documented with reprints of articles from the New York Times and other Jewish press that claimed that there was a holocaust of the Jews during World War One. For example, see the article by Martin Glynn, the former Mayor of New York, describing a holocaust of six million Jews published in 1919 at Heddesheimer missed the systematic and murderous extermination of six million Jews in 1906, as reported in the New York Times, see

Sarkozy translation:  The financial games being played by the axis of evil (USSA, EU, GB) are so close to exploding in their faces, the only remaining distraction and diversion big enough to hide behind is a big messy war.

Gads, the predators-that-be and predator-class are so transparent.

Cracks Open in Iran Nuke Charges

 Michael Hoffman - The Media's Talmudic Double Standard


Cracks Open in Iran Nuke Charges

Many Washington pundits who championed the false tales about Iraq’s WMD have returned to center stage in the new accusations about Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program. And some of the Iran charges are falling apart just like the Iraq ones, as Gareth Porter reports.


By Gareth Porter


A former inspector for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repudiated its major new claim that Iran built an explosives chamber to test components of a nuclear weapon and carry out a simulated nuclear explosion.

The IAEA claim that a foreign scientist – identified in news reports as Vyacheslav Danilenko – had been involved in building the alleged containment chamber also has now been denied firmly by Danilenko himself in an interview with Radio Free Europe published on Friday.

The latest report by the IAEA cited “information provided by Member States” that Iran had constructed “a large explosives containment vessel in which to conduct hydrodynamic experiments” – meaning simulated explosions of nuclear weapons – in its Parchin military complex in 2000.


In the early 90's the Russians released the documents. Samples, and a summary analysis, can be seen here The data shows that more Roman Catholics died at Auschwitz than Jews. The old stone plaque stating that four million had died was replaced by the plaque shown to the left claiming that one and a half million had died. The new number was not documented; based on the documents the figure should be on the order of (some months are missing) one hundred thousand.

Remarkably, (or not), the six million total for Jewish victims of the holocaust was not affected.


The documents captured by the British and US forces, over sixty million documents, have been kept secret to all accept the holohoax 'authorities' at Bad Arolsen to this day.

The Survivors

The holohoax is based on lies told by the 'survivors'.

The three most famous holocaust survivors, Elie Wiesel, Otto Frank, and Primo Levi, have something in common - when the Soviet army approached Auschwitz, they were all in camp hospitals, there were several, the main Auschwitz hospital is shown to the left. Elie Wiesel was being treated for an infected foot. The Nazis gave him the option of waiting to be liberated by the Soviets, or evacuating to the west. Wiesel, with his father, chose to leave with the Nazis. This is related in his book Night describing his year at Auschwitz. There is not a single mention of gas chambers in the book.

Anne Frank and Otto Frank, her father, were first taken to Auschwitz. They were there when the Soviets approached. Otto had contracted tyhpus and was in the camp hospital, and was liberated by the Soviets. Anne was transferred west where she died of typhus in the epidemic at Belsen.

Primo Levi was also in the Auschwitz hospital and was liberated by the Soviets.


Abraham Bomba describes how barbers at Treblinka gave haircuts to roomfuls of naked women in the gas chambers, including their wives, sisters, and mothers, just before their executions in the very same room. He was featured in the movie Shoah documenting the holocaust. His absurd 'testimony' can be seen at, episode 7. This is a must see.

Yehuda Bauer, Director of Research at Yad Vashem writes in the introduction to survivor Filip Mueller's book Eyewitness Auschwitz: Three Years in the Gas Chambers "This is a unique document indeed, it is the testimony of the only man who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell what he saw." Mueller begins in the morning, "where some 500 prisoners had lined up in rows of 10 so that they might enjoy their Sunday rest according to established Auschwitz tradition." The kapo then barks orders to the prisoners to take off and replace their caps. Those not fast enough are bludgeoned to death. One new prisoner speaks up, "I'm sure the people in charge know nothing whatever about this. I protest." He is bludgeoned to death. "As a result of this mornings sporting activities, thirty-five bludgeoned bodies now lay in the yard of Block 11. However our harassment was by no means at an end. Although by now we were exhausted we stood in line behind wooden tea vats. The tea should have been served early in the morning and was now STONE COLD." All you have to do to realize the holohoax is pure phantasmagoria is to read actual 'testimony' of the only man who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell what he saw.

Yes, please show latest naval positioning. I was looking for it last night to see where in Persian/Arabian Gulf + Straights 5th is positioned... no idea how to find it.

Found some 5th fleet website that only has some articles that suggest the Super GWB in in the Gulf.

Obviously Iran fully realises that it has months, if not weeks, before an overwhelming strategic attack occurs. It's no longer a question of will the attack occur on Iran, but when will it occur.

They KNOW the decision to attack has been taken already, they KNOW what's coming.

Obviously the US/NAT0 + UN will use the knock-out punch formula of a major precision bombardment, only much bigger than what occurred to Iraq, and the Slavs, and Iraq, and the slavs some more, and then the shock-and-awe attacks in Afghanistan and Bagdad (again), and Beirut in mid 2006, and Gaza in early 2009 ... oh and Libya ... must not forget Libya.

The air and naval Blitzkrieg, in other words.

Syria's air power must of course be destroyed or otherwise knocked-out first, and that aspect is proceeding to plan.

Clearly the west will/must go in harder and bigger this time, (and with the Saudis flying attack or combat air patrol missions ... on Israel's behalf) to try and totally paralyse the Iranians, from the get go, like they did with all the others.

Now;  If I were an Iranian Leader, at this stage, I would not be waiting for it to start, I'd have no reason to, I would be mobilising and deploying and attacking the west's energy supply nad its financial and economic systems.

The US plans to try to strangle China's oil supply (within SEA) if China does not behave.

We'll, the Iranians can also do that, to the West ... with China's help.

And let's say suddenly Pakistan flips into the China/Iran camp ... and so, where are you now, strategically?

Up shits-creek in a razor-wire canoe using your dick for a paddle, is where.

The US/NATO and Israel and the UN have provided more than sufficient reason for Iran to take a path of total strategic warfare, and gut western energy supplies, in the same way the West is not openly stating it intends to financially strangle Iran.

In other words, we are already at war with Iran (and China and Russia as proxies) ... I expect most people at zh realize this ... or they should have by now.

What else can Iran do but attack? Is this not what the US goaded and FORCED Japan to do in WWII?

Well, the Western nuclear powers are doing it again -- right NOW!

What would any of us do in the face of such evil, such psychopaths?

Iran is cornered and the only thing left is to go all-in to hurt the west, severely, in a way its PEOPLE will NEVER FORGET, rather than be just the latest raghead on the target list .

It can be done, look at what Cuba did - the USSA still has not gotten over that.

Cuba is STILL there! ...but can Iran manage to do the same?

It must! ... or it will be smashed ... correction ... it MUST ... AND it will be smashed ... which is fine for a martyr state that feels it WILL win if it sees it through for long enough.

In as much as possible, Iran should point a credible gun at NATO's head, and say point blank and publicly, "fuck you shit-for-brains, I would take great pleasure in wrecking your entire empire and making your economic and financial lives a living hell."

i.e. Total in your face stern but dignified uber confrontation, that even the US can't ignore or pretend to be able to control, or prevent.

If I put myself into Iran's situation, I know I'd take the initiative and fight, on my terms. No matter what it took I'd make the west scream and cry and suffer terribly, like has not in living memory, and I would DEFINITELY be asking China and Russia to help to do this, and I would EXPECT their proxy political, material and financial support, whilst I spend decades keeping the West in a deep Depression and collapse, by denying the western world a secure oil supply.

I think they're going to do this, or go down trying.

In the end, the West will be forced to invade Iran in a limited way, simply to try and re-open the gulf, and that will be where the post cold war Western military pre-eminence ends, as we watch the NATO/US navies lose a LOT of ships, and a LOT of troops, and a LOT of military credibility, against a MUCH weaker but absolutely determined defender.

Yes, it can happen to the west ... it has happened before -- DEFEAT! ... so don't kid yourself .. the Western world may finally get its arse hammered here, and I'm damn sure China and Russia would LOVE to see this development ... via proxy, of course.

Can the US and NATO really imagine Iran will be a push-over? Are they really that dumb? Or do they want this?

... well, clearly and obviously the west DO want this fight ... ... so who benefits?

List the beneficiaries, if it helps

Element, Iran's oil is needed in China, where a lot of Western Capital is invested, including all the production machinery that left the USA through Mexico. Iran's oil is therefore needed for the Chinese products exported to the West.

What I want to say is that Iran is, IMHO, just a good reason for the Military Industrial Complex to keep selling arms.

Yes, of course.

Which is a good reason for them to face that Iran will otherwise be bombed and taken off the market, and resumed by the west, and China will thus lose that oil-access and trade anyway, and thus they had better proxy-up to Iran, and offer diplomatic support to help dissuade US/Israel from kicking that off.

This is indirectly also a threat to China's political stability and economy, and its ability to provide for its vital domestic interests as well - a very bad idea.

So I estimate they will back Iran to deter the West, as Russia is already openly doing, and warning very bluntly that Russia will not accept an attack on Iran.

These are clear official Russian warnings - even via the foggy medium of the MSM.

The Chinese can plainly see that the West (despite denials) is in fact deliberately angling to get a secure and credible strangle-hold option in place, to squelsh Beijing's power ambitions and nacent adventurism.  The Chinese can easily decide to act to hurt/warn the West now, via proxy material support for an Iranian attack.

A strategic calulation for where they want this to end up in 10 and 20 years time is going to guide them.

A nice little video re Iran's options:

Now add in Chinese and Russian support into that baseline capability-mix of their options.

And perhaps the most amazing thing about the timing of this adventure is... to prevent the unlikely but not impossible possibility that Ron Paul gets elected.  They are now trying to compute whether more voters would be pissed-off by an attack on Iran and thus vote for RonPaul, or would "rally around the commander in chief" and seal the victory for Obamaniac and his oligarchy masters.  If it looks like Ron Paul might win the republican nomination, they'll first consider this question with the intent to assure anyone-but-paul is nominated (thereby assuring a NWO supporter as next president either way the coin falls), or if Ron Paul loses the nomination, to beat whoever the republican slimeballs nominates.

In fact, Iran is almost irrelevant in the world, and the predators-that-be know it.  Oh, the final purpose for the "Iran Show" is to misdirect attention away from the total collapse of the USSA and the rest of the world.

yes, yes, yes, and yes - very well said, especially the bit about Iran otherwise being totally irrelevant.

I love your incisive viewpoints, where have you been?

Indeed, it's the US (demand for oil) and Israel (the endless antagonism and war-making of zionism ), and also the oil and strategic geography that make Iran this fake version of 'significant'.

Otherwise no one would care enough about Iran for them to even need or want to deter the West and Israel with a deliverable nuclear munition.

The NWO are more and more motivated to attack, and Iran knows they will, so we are now in the early 'phoney-war' phase of a real strategic war - the USSA proletariat don't realise how dangerous this situation actually is.
