American and allied aircraft, both civilian and military and might
used in America itself by terrorists who could easily get their

Moreover arms to Jordan have historically ended up in enemy hands,

"U.S. to Sell Jordan 50 Air-To-Air Missiles
Fri Dec 3rd, 2004 6:33 PM ET White House - AP Cabinet & State
By JOHN J. LUMPKIN, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration has authorized the sale of 50
American-made air-to-air missiles to Jordan, according to the U.S.
Israel, Jordan's neighbor, had previously protested the proposed
Jordan 50 AIM-120C Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles
associated parts and systems would boost its ability to shoot down
aircraft at long range with its U.S.-designed F-16 fighters.
The sale is valued at up to $39 million, according to a release from
Defense Security Cooperation Agency. The missiles' primary
Raytheon Missile Systems of Tucson, Ariz.
"The proposed sale will enhance the foreign policy and national
objectives of the United States by improving the security of a key
partner who has proven to be a vital force for political stability
and peace in
the Middle East," the release says. "Jordan needs these missiles to
air-to-air self-defense capability of its F-16 aircraft and provide
increased interoperability with U.S. forces."
Although Israel and Jordan have had a peace treaty since 1996,
Israel argued in
August that the sale would set a dangerous precedent for U.S. arms
region. Tel Aviv had asked Washington to either render the missiles
being fired on Israeli aircraft, or promise not to conclude a
similar sale with
the government of Egypt. Israel and Egypt also have a peace treaty,
has expressed concerns about an arms race in the region.
Pentagon (news - web sites) and State Department officials declined
whether, and how, Israel's concerns had been dealt with. A State
official said regional concerns were taken into account but declined
more. Congress has until Dec. 20 to pass a joint resolution opposing
which would effectively kill it. But officials familiar with the
deal said that
was unlikely at this stage in negotiations. "
Rather than apologizing to Jordan, rather than arming Jordan,
President Bush should DEMAND AN APOLOGY FROM THE KING OF
JORDAN FOR ARMING SADDAM WITH WEAPONS TO KILL AMERICAN SOLDIERS .

Special Report: Kuchma Approved Sale of Weapons System to Iraq
By Phillip van Niekerk and AndrVerl
(WASHINGTON April 15, 2002) -- Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma
personally authorized the clandestine sale of $100-million worth of
high-technology anti-aircraft radar systems to Iraq on July 10,
violation of United Nations sanctions.
The Center for Public Integrity has obtained audio tape of a
conversation between Kuchma and Valeri Malev, then-director of the
arms exporting company, Ukrspetseksport. In the conversation Kuchma
approved the export of the radar system, known as Kolchuga, and the
manner of its shipment: by hiding it in crates used to export
Ukrainian trucks. Kuchma also agreed to send experts to Iraq with
passports to deploy the system. The operation was to be conducted by
Vasilievich Derkach, then chief of the Ukrainian security service,
The Kolchuga, named after the ancient Russian warrior body armor, is
manufactured by the Ukrainian company Topaz. The system can identify,
detect and lock anti-aircraft missiles on aerial targets at a range
of close to 500 miles, and is able to override "stealth" technology.
capable of detecting ground targets at 370 miles.
"We are quite familiar with that," Jim Brooks, a spokesman for the
Defense Intelligence Agency, said when asked if Iraq had deployed
passive radar systems. "Iraq has them." One European intelligence
that if Iraq had obtained the stations, it would be "frightening."
The sale is a clear violation of U.N. sanctions imposed on Iraq. U.N.
Security Council Resolution 661 makes any sale or supply of "weapons
any other military equipment" to Iraq illegal.
Ewen Buchanan, spokesman for the U.N. Monitoring and Verification
Commission on Iraq (UNMOVIC), said that "no information has come our
way regarding sale of radars by Ukraine to Iraq."
In the conversation, Malev revealed that Iraq approached Ukraine
through an unnamed Jordanian intermediary to buy the early warning
targeting system that consists of four stations and is "passive"
because it is
difficult for the pilot to realize he has been picked up on radar.
radar sends out a high-frequency signal that pilots can detect and
alert them if they are being tracked.
"Just watch that the Jordanian keeps his mouth shut," said Kuchma,
giving the go-ahead for the plan. Oleksandr Zhyr, a Ukrainian
lawmaker, said he
believed that Kuchma had benefited financially from the sale. "It is
unlikely that the $100 million could have gone to the state budget
as it was the
proceeds of an illegal arms deal." Major Mykola Melnychenko, a
security officer for Kuchma, recorded the conversation between the

founding BEK TEK, lists the U.S. Congress, the Department of
FBI, the Office of the Independent Counsel, the Department of

testimony in court cases. Earlier this year, Koenig authenticated the

Melnychenko said he waited until after the Ukrainian parliamentary
elections on March 31 to release the explosive new tape because he
did not want to be perceived as "politically motivated." "What I
recorded in the
office of the President of Ukraine in most cases has nothing to do
politics," Melnychenko said. "I recorded what I
believe is the evidence of almost non-stop criminal activity of the
president and his men." Zhyr, the Ukrainian lawmaker, said that
Kuchma was told
on March 3, 2002 that a parliamentary commission had evidence that
had violated the international arms embargo against Iraq. Three days
later, Valeri Malev was killed when his car allegedly veered into

adviser. Zhyr told the Center that Malev's death was
premeditated. "The car
trip was not planned by Malev," said Zhyr. "He suddenly received an
instruction to travel somewhere where he was accidentally killed.
This should be
investigated in the context of the illegal arms sales to Iraq...
"Kuchma and his men are scared of the investigations and therefore

meetings with the U.S. Justice Department and that he wanted U.S. law

chief of SBU, the Ukrainian security service - editor) looks at the
structure to Iraq. Our KrAZ company ships its products in crates. We
can use the
crates marked by KrAZ. In other words, Kolchuga should be shipped to
KrAZ crates. Then we will send people with forged passports that will
install the system. Kuchma: Just watch that the Jordanian keeps his

Writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are
merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the
high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green
earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews-this is God's
truth. Anti-Semitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and
remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full
agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently anti-
and ever will be so.
Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and
ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land. The
Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing
Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the
Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven
from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the
globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of
tyrant happened to rule over them.

tyranny under rulers not of our choosing. Our brothers in Africa have

How easy it should be, for anyone who holds dear this inalienable
right of all mankind, to understand and support the right of the
Jewish People to live in their ancient Land of Israel. All men of
good will exult in the fulfillment of God's promise, that his People
should return in joy to rebuild their plundered land. This is
nothing more, nothing less. And what is anti-Zionist? It is the
denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly
claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of
the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they
are Jews. In short, it is anti-Semitism. The anti-Semite rejoices at
any opportunity to vent his malice. The times have made it unpopular,
in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the
case, the anti-Semite must constantly seek new forms and forums for
his poison. How he must revel in the new masquerade! He does not hate
the Jews, he is just 'anti-Zionist'! My friend, I do not accuse you
of deliberate anti-Semitism. I know you feel, as I do, a deep love of
truth and justice and a revulsion for racism, prejudice, and
discrimination. But I know you have been misled-as others have
been-into thinking you can be 'anti-Zionist' and yet remain true to
these heartfelt principles that you and I share. Let my words echo in
the depths of your soul: When people criticize Zionism, they mean
Jews-make no mistake about it."

instruments with which to battle the pathology of hate, citing Dr.
Martin Luther King's vision for creating a more just society. Martin
Luther King III, citing his father, said that "injustice anywhere is
threat to justice everywhere." He called for Jewish and African
Americans to continue in his father's path, stressing the importance
of the relationship between the two groups. Dr. Farris, who recently
received an honorary degree from the Ben- Gurion University in Be'er
Sheva, and who has visited Israel many times, thanked Ambassador
with a greeting in Hebrew, and continued: "It was Martin Luther King
Jr. who told me I could have a vision, and mine was the Holocaust."
She recounted the activities of Stockton College Holocaust research
center, which has worked to ensure legislation in the state of New
Jersey mandating Holocaust education. The event concluded with a jazz
ensemble performing "We Shall Overcome", during which guests stood up
and joined in the singing, while clasping hands. This annual occasion
is part of the State of Israel's recognition of the exceptional
contributions of individuals in the African-American community, in
whose name trees are planted in the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial
forest in Israel, located near Nazareth. For further information,

Had Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy NOT been assassinated Eugene
McCarthy, who was 7
points ahead of Nixon in the polls, would have been nominated by the
Democratic Party as its
Presidential candidate in 1968 and gone on to win the White House.
Gene would have ended the Vietnam War promptly in 1969. Gene McCarthy
was a good personal friend of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. He
was a friend of Israel. Gene would probably have been re-elected in
1972. There probably would NOT have been an arab surprise attack on
Israel on October 6th, 1973 with Gene McCarthy in the White House and
the US NOT tied down in Indochina. In our view ARAFAT ordered the
assassinations of BOTH BOBBY KENNEDY AND DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. The
cost to the African-American community of the death of the most
Gandhian leader it ever had is incalculable in terms of wasted human
lives. Dr. King was also a friend to the Jewish community. Imagine a
world in which there never had been a split between the Jewish
community and the African American community. Instead of Jesse
Jackson assuming the mantle of the slain Dr. King, and going on to
lead the charge against the Jewish community after Jimmy Carter fired
Andy Young for shaking hands with an arafat observer at the UN, and
going on to make his infamous "Hymietown" remark, Martin Luther King
would have led the African-American community. (JIMMY CARTER

his OPERATION PUSH from Iraq and allegedly got another $5 million

Arafat Behind MLK, RFK Murders? Why would arafat want Sirhan Sirhan,
convicted "palestinian" assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, freed? Is it

By URI DAN New York Post
December 15, 2001 -- JERUSALEM - Yasser Arafat personally ordered
the execution of two American diplomats in 1973, a former U.S.
intelligence officer says. James Walsh said he knew of a tape
recording in which Arafat calmly discussed an attack on the Saudi
Arabian Embassy in Khartoum, Sudan. In February 1973 gunmen had burst
into the embassy and seized American Ambassador Cleo Noel and his
charge d'affaires, George Curtis Moore. The Black September terrorist
organization took responsibility for the assault and demanded the
release of Sirhan Sirhan, the imprisoned assassin of Robert F.
Kennedy, and other jailed Palestinians. Walsh, then a member of the
National Security Agency based in Cyprus, said his organization
intercepted a conversation between Arafat and Black September in
the PLO chairman ordered the killing of the Americans and a Belgian
diplomat. Walsh told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that the
conversation was never disclosed by U.S. officials because it would
compromise American eavesdropping resources. Walsh said the NSA had
intercepted a series of phone calls between Arafat and the Black
September kidnappers. Officials in Jerusalem said the United States
had been informed of the conversation through another channel. They
said then-Prime Minister Golda Meir told then-President Richard Nixon
that Israel had also intercepted a conversation between Arafat and
kidnap leader Khalil al-Wazir, in which they discussed killing the
Americans.." Before He Was Murdered Doctor King had endorsed the
Presidential Candidacy of Eugene McCarthy, Democrat of Minnesota for
the 1968 Democratic Presidential Nomination. Senator McCarthy, (not
be confused with Republican Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin who was
Eugene McCarthy's opposite in more ways than one), campaigned on a
platform of opposition to the Vietnam War in 1968, a war that
called: Illegal, Immoral, and unconstitutional. When Dr. King
Senator McCarthy's presidential candidacy He joined the noble causes
of Peace and Civil Rights together. Just as they should be joined.
weeks Later Dr. King was murdered in Memphis. Had he lived he would
have gone on to campaign for McCarthy, who was 7 points ahead of
in the polls. With Dr. King by his side McCarthy would have gone on
be nominated by the Democratic Party in 1968 and elected President in
November 1968. I have no doubt, as someone who worked in the McCarthy
campaign, that Dr. King would have been in President McCarthy's
Cabinet in 1969. Robert F. Kennedy would have ended his campaign and
joined with Gene McCarthy and Dr. King to end the war. Instead Dr.
King's murder caused disunity in the Democratic Party. Bobby Kennedy
sought the Democratic Presidential nomination, only to be murdered
himself on June 4th, 1968 2 months to the day after Dr. King was
murdered. June 4th,1968 was also the first anniversary of the Six-Day
War. As the US Senator from New York State, a state that McCarthy
would have carried handily in the June 1968 Democratic Primary Bobby
Kennedy would have to have obeyed the wishes of the people of his
state and dropped out of the Presidential race after that primary and
endorsed Gene McCarthy. But the primary came after Bobby Kennedy had
been killed. Beating a dead Bobby Kennedy was no victory. Not having
live Bobby Kennedy on hand to concede defeat and endorse Gene
meant that Hubert Humphrey, a supporter of the war in Vietnam, would
go on to become the Democratic Presidential nominee, only to lose to
Richard M. Nixon in November of 1968. Thus the war in Vietnam would
continue no matter who, Humphrey, or Nixon, won.
With America tied down in Vietnam it had to have been thought in the
arab world that America would not be able to intervene to save Israel
when the inevitable arab attack on Israel came. RFK was killed on the
first anniversary of the Six Day War Clark also dutifully backed

acted alone in the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers.*** Carlos

March 13, 2002 Paying to Murder Jews
Financial Rewards To Families Of
Palestinian Arab Suicide Bombers
Increased From $10,000 To $25,000
NEW YORK - As U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni
prepares to travel to the
East to help put an end to terrorism, Yasir Arafat's Palestinian
Authority is further promoting terrorism by expanding its program of
providing payments to families of suicide bombers.
Until now, the PA has been providing a one time payment of $2,000 to
each family; "monthly payments of $150 that continue until the last
child has left the house"; an additional $2,500 grant from the PA's
Red Crescent Division; and the PA has served as the conduit for
payments of $10,000 to each family from the government of Iraq. (New
York Times, Dec. 24, 2000)
Iraqi Deputy Minister Tariq Aziz has now announced that it will
amount of its PA-channeled grants to $25,000 per family. (Associated
Press, March 12, 2002) Additional PA programs that supply financial
aid to terrorists and their families: o Scholarships for terrorists'
children: In June 1998, Arafat instructed the PA's Higher Committee
for Scholarships to give "priority to the sons of martyrs when it
comes to awarding scholarships." The PA uses the term "martyrs" to
include terrorists killed while attempting to murder Israelis. (As
reported in the pro-Arafat newspaper Jerusalem Times, July 3, 1998) o
Salaries for jailed terrorists: Jawad al-Tibi, chairman of the Social
Affairs Committee for Arafat's Palestinian Legislative Council,
visited Arab terrorists in Israeli prisons on October 30, 1997. Tibi
announced that his committee "will act to implement the Legislative
Council's decision, which states that each prisoner should receive an
income identical to that of a soldier." (As reported in the pro-
newspaper Jerusalem Times on Sept. 11, 1998, and in the Israeli
Yerushalayim, Aug.27, 1999)

Was Senator Heinz assassinated too?
We believe that Dr. King was assassinated, as we discuss in this
post, for a variety of reasons. We believe that assassins have been
killing Americans for many years.
Before we discuss all of that however some thoughts on the 2004
Our initial opposition to George W. Bush was based on the fact that
his father left Saddam in power. George W. Bush has made up for that
mistake by liberating Iraq.
The late Senator Heinz, then Senator Gore, and Senator Kerry were
all close friends working on exposing what was known as Iraqgate,
the arming of Saddam by Reagan and Bush I. source: SPIDER'S WEB: THE

Servants of Saddam. Of the 3 Senators: Heinz, Gore and Kerry, Heinz

carried out by Saddam Hussein's agents. Helicopter crashes were a
trademark of assassinations carried out by Saddam's agents, and Gore
became Servants of Saddam.

Sometime after Senator Heinz was killed Senator Kerry and the widow
of Senator Heinz were married.
The "official" story about how John Forbes Kohn Kerry met his second
Teresa is as follows: "Kerry and Teresa Simões-Ferreira Heinz, the
Pennsylvania Senator H. John Heinz III and formerly a United Nations
translator, met at the UN-sponsored Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro
in 1992. They married on May 26, 1995 in Nantucket, Massachusetts."
You will forgive our skepticism about that story when you realize
that the late Senator Heinz,Al Gore, and Senator Kerry were all very
close friends who worked together on exposing Iraqgate, the arming
of Saddam Hussein. We find it highly implausible that those 3 very
close friends would not have had family gatherings or similar social
events of some type while all 3 were working closely togehter that
would have brought Senator Kerry together with Teresa Heinz.
In fact our skepticism about that story is confirmed by the story
below which states that Teresa Heinz met John Forbes Kohn Kerry for
first time in 1990, while Senator Heinz was still alive, not in
1992, as the
wikipedia excerpt above would have us believe. Why the discrepancy?
effort to state that the 2 did not meet while Senator Heinz was still
alive? In 1990, a year before Heinz's death, Teresa Heinz met John
her boys grown up, she was deepening her involvement in environmental
affairs and attended an Earth Day event in Washington, DC. Jack
Heinz introduced them. When the two saw each other again as
delegates to the
1992 Earth Summit in Brazil, Teresa Heinz was newly widowed. By all
it was a fascinating trip. The assassination of rain forest activist
Chico Mendes was still being felt, and environmentalists were upset
about a proposed highway to be built into the heart of the Amazon
When they found themselves at the same Washington dinner party a few
months later, Kerry invited Teresa Heinz for a romantic walk.
Kerry ...was considered one of the most eligible single men in the
country. His name was linked in the press to women like Catherine
Oxenberg and Morgan Fairchild. But Teresa Heinz's earthy
sophistication won him over. "Definitely sexy," he has called
her. "Very earthy sexy, European." They began dating in 1993, then
living together. Two years later, they married on Nantucket."
We do not know where wikipedia got the material it used to set 1992,
Senator Heinz had been killed, rather than 1990, while Senator Heinz
was still alive, as the year when Teresa Heinz met John Forbes Kohn
Kerry's website documents the 1990 meeting,with an interesting
environmental spin to it as follows:
"Their mutual interest in environmental issues brought Teresa and
John together. She was first introduced to John Kerry by Senator
Heinz at an Earth Day rally in 1990. In 1992, she met Kerry again at
the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro..."
Was this the first meeting? We do not know. But we do know the two
met while Senator Heinz was still alive.
Here is one we do not believe, note Wikipedia has updated its story
on the Teresa meetings with Kerry, we still do not believe them
"Kerry and his second wife, Teresa Simões-Ferreira Heinz, the widow
of Pennsylvania Senator H. John Heinz III, a moderate Republican, and
former United Nations translator, were introduced to each other by
John Heinz at
an Earth Day rally in 1990. They did not meet again until after John
death, at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro."
They now admit that Kerry met Teresa while Senator Heinz was still
alive. They go to great pains to state that:"They did not meet again
after John Heinz's death, at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de
The question is why? How do they know that :"They did not meet again
until after John Heinz's death, at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de
How do they know that the 1990 meeting was the first meeting, or the
last before the 1992 meeting? Both Kerry and Heinz were at Yale and
Skull and Bones. Isn't it possible, perhaps even likely, that Kerry
Teresa even before 1990? And that they continued to see each other,
romantically, while Senator Heinz was still alive? We cannot state
that to be a fact, we have no fabricated or forged documents, this
the Dan Rather show, but we can suspect that. One thing is certain,
Wikipedia admits that it is certain: Kerry met Teresa while her
husband, Senator Heinz was still alive. Another thing is certain.
Heinz ended up dead. Another thing is certain: Kerry ended up
Teresa. Another thing is certain Teresa ended up with the Heinz
