The Hate Crime of the Century: Israel and JFK - by Mark E. Smith
A few weeks ago I was at the public library and I picked up a book called While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age During the Civil Rights Movement, by Carolyn Maull McKinstry. As an atheist, it is unusual for me to suffer through a book by a believer like McKinstry, full of sentiments such as that the bombing was for the best and likely part of God's plan because it advanced the Civil Rights Movement, or statements to that effect. But I did, because the bombing by the Ku Klux Klan of four young girls in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham Alabama, was a hate crime, a reaction by segregationists, on September 15, 1963, to the fact that President John F. Kennedy, to force integration in Alabama schools, had federalized the Alabama National Guard five days earlier, on September 10, 1963, and I wanted to know more about it. JFK, of course, was killed only two months later, on November 22, 1963.
Even in the farcical US injustice system, there is a special penalty for hate crimes because hate crimes are of a different order than ordinary crimes. People who commit hate crimes do it out of hatred for specific groups, in this case Blacks, without any consideration of who the individual victims may be, in this case four innocent young girls at church. But the perpetrators escaped justice for decades because the legal system itself in the United States is little more than an institutionalized hate crime. Our Constitution established a judiciary branch that would condone slavery, because unless Blacks were considered less than fully human the slave states would not have ratified the Constitution. This was only possible because racist hatred was deeply ingrained in a large enough proportion of the population that there was little protest.
The European colonists who slaughtered Native Americans and used African slave labor to enrich themselves, never believed for a moment that "all men are created equal," as the Declaration of Independence declared "self-evident." What they believed is that they were a superior people with every right to enslave and kill "savages" of darker skin and less genocidal faiths. The depopulation of Turtle Island ("the Americas" to the predators) was a hate crime of historic dimensions. Billions of indigenous people were killed and when the massacre slowed (it has never stopped), perhaps 3% were left alive. Nothing in Europe can compare, not even what Jews arrogantly call "The Holocaust," where only a few million were killed and the Jewish population after WWII was about as large as previously. And, like most hate crimes, much of it was committed by religious people who sincerely believed they were doing God's will in the name of God. God, apparently, did not want Native Americans to continue to respect and steward their land, God wanted colonists to kill the wildlife, cut down the forests, and irreparably pollute the air, water, and land. It was called "progress," "development," and "civilization."
How much hatred does it take to kill billions of innocent people who have done you no harm? The settlers didn't even claim to have talked with God, they claimed that the Kings who gave them charters to depopulate new territories and claim them for the Crown had the Divine Right to carry out what they believed to be God's will. To this day there is a huge proportion of the US population that believe that genocide and slavery were part of God's perfect plan because they brought about the country they believe to be the best on earth, even if it has greater inequality and lower life expectancy than many less developed countries.
But you can't argue with faith. And faith, rooted in patriarchal sexism and racism, is what it takes to incite people to kill four, or 6 million, or even billions of other people. I doubt if the Klansmen who bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church were any less devout than McKinstry. They just had slightly different beliefs, i.e., that God didn't want people of darker skin to mix with people of lighter skin. You can't tell people of faith that the human genome has proven that we all come from people of darker skin, or that what we call "race" is a social fiction, because they will reject anything that contradicts their deeply held beliefs. People feel no guilt when they believe that they are committing their hate crimes in the name of God or country--they believe that what they are doing is right and necessary to carry out the will of their omnipotent God who needs humans to do his wet jobs because he works in mysterious ways.
Another thing that makes hate crimes special is the extreme violence with which they are committed. If God wants people to kill "savages," then the killers will compete to see how many "savages" they can kill, in the process showing themselves to be much more savage than anything their relatively peaceful victims could have ever imagined.
Since I don't believe in racism and hate, I read McKinstry's book to learn more about the terrible hate crime she had survived, and simply ignored her rationalizations about God's plan. And I did learn a lot. Especially after finishing the book and reflecting about what I'd read.
You see, recently I've been following the work of David Sheen and Max Blumenthal, among others. They have documented the ongoing racism in Israel. I'm aware of the recently deceased Israeli rabbi who said that non-Jews exist only to serve Jews. I'm aware of the politically powerful Israeli woman who stated publicly that she is proud to be a racist. I've seen videos of racist mobs attacking Blacks in Israel. So when I finished McKinstry's book, I couldn't help but think that if Klansmen reacted to Kennedy integrating Alabama schools by bombing a church, how would Zionists and racist Israelis have reacted to such proof that the President of the United States of America was what they would certainly have called a "n*gger-lover?" How could they pursue their plans of ridding first Israel and then the world of people of color, with JFK as head of the most powerful nation in the world?
So, being nothing more than an armchair activist or what used to be derisively smeared as a "keyboard warrior" until the Pentagon began to deploy battalions of them, I posted the following Tweet:
"I still don't know who killed JFK, but I'm beginning to think that Israel called the shots."
That got a reply from someone who recommended I read a book called Final Judgment: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy, by Michael Collins Piper. As it happened, I already owned the book, but had never gotten around to reading it, so I decided to see what the author had to say. Piper, whose book seems rather muddled with extraneous information in some ways, also thinks that Israel called the shots in the JFK assassination, but for much more rational reasons.
Piper looks at the usual suspects, the Mafia, anti-Castro Cubans, the CIA, the FBI, LBJ, etc., and says that while any or all of them could have carried out the hit, none of them are in a position today to control the continuing cover-up. Why are documents from fifty years ago still classified? Who is ensuring that they stay classified?
Piper examines some of the major suspects one by one. He looks at Mafia figures like Santo Trafficante, Carlos Marcello, and Johnny Rosselli, and shows that they were lieutenants or subordinates of Jewish crime boss Meyer Lansky.
Piper looks at the anti-Castro Cubans in Miami and shows that many of them were Jews who had been involved in Lansky's lucrative casinos, resorts, and other businesses in Cuba.
Piper looks at the CIA and shows that James Jesus Angleton, the CIA's counter-intelligence chief, was so close to the Mossad that after his death in 1987, several memorials were erected in Israel in his honor.
Piper looks at the FBI and shows that J. Edgar Hoover was involved with organized crime, which at the time was headed by Meyer Lansky, not by the Italian Mafia.
And finally, Piper looks at Meyer Lansky himself, who was a Zionist and later settled in Israel.
JFK had made many enemies. He refused to send air support to the Bay of Pigs. He threatened to destroy the CIA. And JFK certainly had antagonized Israel when he expressed concern about Israel's secret nuclear program.
Clumsily, and with perhaps more information than most of us need to know, Piper does make his point. While all the usual suspects had reason to kill JFK, they all had ties to some of the top Zionists, and it is the Zionists alone who had the power to coordinate both the assassination and the continuing cover-up.
Various plans had probably been in the works for a long time. I do intend to read Piper's book again, as the key people involved in both the assassination and the cover-up do appear to have been Zionists, and it was Israel that gained the most benefit from the murder of JFK.
But I don't think it was a rational crime, a crime committed for gain, whether the gain in question was keeping the CIA intact, trying to retake Cuba for organized crime, or ensuring Israel's nuclear weapons program. I think it was a hate crime--a crime committed by Zionists because they don't consider non-Jews, particularly non-Jews of color, to be human, and saw Kennedy's concern for human rights as the biggest possible obstacle to their racist agenda.
Piper's book is based on research. My own theory is based merely on feeling. But what is the basis of hate crimes other than feelings? Those feelings may stem from deeply held beliefs, but hate is an emotion, a feeling and that's what we have to look at to explain hate crimes.
Piper has examined a thousand details, probably many more. I just had a feeling--I read a book about how US racists reacted to Kennedy's stand for human rights, and I felt that Zionists, being much more racist than the KKK, would have reacted much more violently--and now that I've read Piper's book, I feel certain that they did.
