Michael Piper was one of the scheduled speakers at a seminar that
was cancelled at the South Orange County Community College
District. Piper is the author of "Final Judgment."
Speakers on the JFK assassination have been popular on American campuses for 30 years. Yet, the thesis of my book - "Final Judgment" - is one that some don't want students to even hear: that Israel's spy agency, the Mossad, played a role with the CIA and the Meyer Lansky crime syndicate in the murder of President Kennedy.
My book is not yet "banned in Boston," but it is banned in Orange County, so it seems. The very week the American Library Association and the National Association of College Stores sponsored "Banned Books Week," controversy raged in Orange County because some were upset that Steve Frogue, president of the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCD) trustees, had invited me to discuss "Final Judgment" at an SOCCD seminar on the JFK assassination.
Although heavy-handed lobbying forced cancellation of the seminar, there's now a drive to remove Frogue from office for believing in our Constitution's guarantee that Americans have the right to express differing points of view.
Israeli diplomat Uri Palti says "Final Judgment" is "nonsense." Yet, contradictorily, critics still declare my discoveries "dangerous" - that my findings shouldn't be heard by "impressionable" kids.
Unfortunately, because of what critics allege, many people believe I "deny the Holocaust," which is not true. However, for the record, my book does not discuss the Holocaust.
Here is what "Final Judgment" contends:
In 1963, JFK was embroiled in a bitter (then secret) conflict with Israeli leader David Ben-Gurion over Israel's drive to build the atomic bomb; that Ben-Gurion resigned in disgust, having told JFK that because of JFK's policies, Israel's "existence [was] in danger." Upon JFK's assassination, U.S. policy toward Israel began an immediate 180-degree turnaround.
This is all documented by Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh in "The Samson Option," by Andrew Cockburn in "Dangerous Liaison," and by Stephen Green in "Taking Sides" - each a respected historian. Where, then, is the "Israeli connection" to the assassination? The fact is that when New Orleans DA Jim Garrison prosecuted Clay Shaw with conspiracy in the JFK assassination, Garrison stumbled upon the Mossad link.
Although Shaw was exposed as a CIA asset, Shaw was involved in 1963 in covert activities with high-level Mossad officer Tibor Rosenbaum, whose Swiss bank laundered mob money for Meyer Lansky, "chairman" of the crime syndicate.
Some say "the Mafia killed JFK." In fact, the Mafia bosses accused of "whacking" JFK - Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafficante - were not only Lansky subordinates but also CIA collaborators in plots against Fidel Castro.
And while many accuse the CIA's James Angleton of a role in the assassination cover-up, none mention that Angleton, the CIA's Mossad liaison, was a devoted partisan of Israel.
In light of the hysteria over "Final Judgment," recall JFK's words: "A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."
Below is yet another person, standing up for Freedom, being persecuted by the Bronfman Puppets.
STEVEN J. FROGUE needs your/our help very badly.
It is VERY urgent that you come to the aid of STEVEN J. FROGUE [firstname.lastname@example.org], PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRUSTEE's of South Orange County Community College District. He is being attacked over an ACADEMIC FREEDOM ISSUE regarding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. WE CANNOT allow our learning institutions to become INTIMIDATED by ANYONE and we certainly cannot allow an environment to exist where FREE and OPEN DISCUSSION on ANY issue, comfortable or not, is STIFLED or squelched or silenced or STIMIED. WE SHOULD ALL be OUTRAGED at the ORWELLIAN NOTION that certain subjects or history cannot be discussed openly and with candor. The DARK FORCES of CENSORSHIP are dangerous indeed, just as John F. Kennedy said: "A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."
Keep in mind that the honorable Steven J. Frogue is about to have his CAREER and possibly life destroyed simply because he invited ONE speaker out of four that someone found unacceptable. THIS is TOTALLY unacceptable. How on earth can we expect OPEN HONEST ACADEMIC THOUGHT when such severe intimidation techniques are allowed to exist. Steven may not even agree with the one speaker in question. BUT THIS IS NOT the POINT ! We cannot prevent people from hearing ALL VOICES on ANY SUBJECT BEFORE EVERYONE has had the chance to JUDGE for themselves ON EVERY and ANY ISSUE. To do otherwise is to BRAINWASH and live in tyranny.
If Mr. FROGUE WERE to agree with every speaker he presents WOULD he NOT be guilty of censoring the views he does NOT agree with by definition ? Why have 4 speakers if they all say the same thing ? The idea is to allow ALL sides of an issue to present their cases and let the intelligent student body and faculty determine which is true and which is not so far as it can be determined. I cannot believe this even requires mentioning. Why not allow the points in question to be debated and if they are false then all will know of their OWN accord, not a censor's accord. Also I do NOT even know STEVEN but one who knows someone needs to come to his aid, especially in such an obvious case as this. As MacBeth Said: "Doth someone protest to much ?" Why the rabid urgency to SILENCE one voice out of so many ?
DO THE RIGHT THING, please, your freedom depends on it.
