Mossad Measuring the Drapes?
November 10th, 2008 by Syd Walker

At last, some real dirt on Barak Obama!

He has terrorist connections!

No, I don’t mean the endlessly recycled, tenuous connection with Bill Ayers, an elderly academic with a colorful past. Nor do I have in mind Barak’s links with the Rev Wright, one of the more honest preachers in America today.

Those people are in Obama’s past. I imagine both will get more calls from Fox News than they receive from President Obama in the coming years. Probably a lot more…

Rahm Emanuel gets in Barak Obama's earMore central to Obama‘s future is Rahm Emanuel, his newly-appointed Chief of Staff. Now there’s a guy with terrorist connections…

At the time his appointment went beyond rumor to confirmed fact, Emanuel made a special point of noting that his parents are both still alive and able to appreciate their son’s success.

It’s a beautiful sentiment – one of those times when the political intersects with the personal. A short clip of Rahm’s remark has been shown around the world.

But who are Rahm’s parents?

His father is Benjamin M. Emanuel, a US pediatrician. Like many other successful Americans, he emigrated to America from another place. Actually, he came from Palestine.

In fact as a young man, Benjamin was a terrorist based in Palestine. So the father of Obama’s new anchor man was a Palestinian Terrorist!

No, not that kind of Palestinian Terrorist! Benjamin Rahm was a member of the Irgun in the 1940s.

The main focus of the Irgun’s terrorist outrages was tormenting the British mandate forces stationed in Palestine at the time. They bombed British targets. They abducted and murdered British soldiers. They also assassinated prominent British emissaries. Oh, and they massacred Arab Palestinians too. Quite a few.

Emanuel senior’s comments to the press following his son’s White House appointment are of some note. The New York Daily News reports:

Dr. Benjamin Emanuel, once a member of the Irgun militia that fought for Israel’s statehood, was asked in an interview with the Hebrew daily Maariv if his son’s appointment would be good for Israel.”Obviously, he will influence the President to be pro-Israel,” said the elder Emanuel, who immigrated to the U.S. from Israel in the 1950s.”Why shouldn’t he do it? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to clean the floor of the White House. “There was no immediate comment from Rep. Emanuel’s congressional office

Well, no-one can blame a man for his cranky old parents.

So perhaps all this background is irrelevant? Has Emanuel junior transcended his parents sectarian extremism?

It doesn’t seem so. In the early 1990s, Rahm Emanuel was on the team in Clinton’s early bid for the presidency. Then war broke out – and Rahm went off to participate personally as a national defence vounteer at a time of crisis.

A sign of deep patriotism? Well, yes and no. Rahm didn’t leave Clinton’s campaign to fight with the American military. An Israeii newspaper informs us that he was a volunteer in the IDF. That’s the Israeli Defense Force.

Is Obama’s Chief of Staff a dual national? *

During the Clinton years, Rahm Emanuel was a key policy adviser, one of the many Jewish Zionists in Bill Clinton’s Administration.

He has been a Congressman since 2003. According to an astute observer of the 2006 mid-term elections, by that time Rahm was really in his stride. He worked like a Congressional gardener, weeding out anti-war voices and ensuring the election of a reliable pro-war crop.

So it was that in 2006 the electorate swept Democrats to congressional power on an anti-war wave – yet the war(s) just carried on. Emanuel said it would be so. And so it was.

Now Rahm Emanuel is the first building bock in the new Obama Administration and will be chief gatekeeper at the White House.

He is in a perfect position to mold the flow of information to the new President, overseeing who can reach him personally, pick other key staff and generally style the new Ship of State.

Cynics might suggest that he will also guarantee deep Israeli penetration of the new White House. Can Obama ever have contact with anyone without Mossad finding out – in real time?

Of course, that’s just a conspiracy theory.

As everyone in the real word knows, Rahm is 100% a loyal American.

Any suggestion that he would ever consider betraying American interests – or his new employer – for a foreign power, is completely ridiculous.

No wonder not one major newspaper in the English-speaking word has devoted a column inch to the suggestion.


* According to this fascinating article from (1999), Rahm Emanuel gave up Israeli citizenship in 1979 – shortly before he accomplished his first major ‘success’ in US politics: destroying the congressional career of Paul Findley, one of the few members of Congress in the 1960s/70s willing to be openly critical of Israel.

    “Read about the Irgun and some of their activities on this British ex-services website.”

    What British ex-Services website? There’s no link…

    I’ve slightly changed the text from the original edition (just a tidy-up). The reference (originally missing but now linked-to via other text) is the ‘Britains Small Wars’ website – Ed

    I saw Peter Myers’ relay of your piece above, astute and competent with respect. If the power of emancipated Jewry is to be neutralised, actually reversed, the Jewish condition as a predicament must firstly be grasped. Jewishness must be clearly defined, so I offer my rather rare definition at

    Syd, excellent post, you did your homework, and so eloquently put to boot! Just a comment, and one to do with a question I’ve been asking myself, when the U.S. goes bankrupt as it will, and the money dries up as it will, who will fund Israel?

    Even if they ressurect Golda Meir and install her in the White
    House, there will be NO DINERO! Rahm Emanuel is going to be preaching to the choir soon.

    Of course, they do have another option, that is more to Israels taste perhaps, turn Amerika into a rogue State and start using nuclear blackmail to squeeze money out of the Arabs. But then the Arabs are already triangulating with the Chinese and the Iranians with the Russians so that leaves what? Scary thought.

    RAhm Emmanuel was Clinton’s Chief of Staff. HE quit the day after the Lewinsky sex scandal broke… MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. He virtually slipped out the back door, along with Robert Rubin….. they had to keep a low profile and save their reputations. No sinking Clinton Ship for Rubin and Emanuel… because NOW THEIR BACK in the Obama administration.

    Clinton at the time was conflicting with Netanyahu on the Palestinian land settlement. The Israelis said 10% and Clinton was going for 13%.

    Netanyahu visited him the day the scandal broke and gloated the next day to the media, while smoking a huge cigar.

    Neal Travis of the New York Post reports that, according to a new book on the Mossad, Israel blackmailed President Clinton with 30 hours of tapes of his phone sex talks with Monica Lewinsky. The agency allegedly agreed not to release the material in return for Clinton calling off an FBI hunt for a top-level Israeli mole supposedly in the White House. The allegation appears in “Gideon’s Spies – The Secret History of the Mossad,” written by Gordon Thomas. Lewinsky testified under oath that after a session of heavy petting and oral sex in the White House, Clinton told her a foreign embassy was tapping the two phone lines in her DC apartment. She claims Clinton told her that if questioned they should say they knew their calls were being bugged and were only joking to fool the tappers. Kenneth Starr does not pursue the matter. Thomas tells the NYP: “So far as anyone knows, the Israeli agent MEGA – a much more important spy than the imprisoned CIA traitor Jonathan Pollard, and probably his controller – is still in place at the White House.”

    THE MOLE WAS RAHM EMANUEL he resigned with little media fanfare, the day Bebe Netanyahu showed up in a Washington Press conference with a sht eating grin.. smoking a big cigar.
