Israel ultimately behind slaying of RFK


[Editor’s note: The following article appeared in the June 6th, 1968 edition of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency’s Daily Bulletin and if you know how to read between the lines and interpret what it is saying, then it can be taken as a virtual admission of Israeli guilt in having planned and carried out the assassination.

Not only was the patsy a Palestinian from Jerusalem but he was active in ‘anti-Israel agitation’ as part of his membership of the Organization of Arab Students.

The timing of the shooting – one year after the end of the Six Day War between Israel and it’s Arab neighbours is also significant as it was that conflict that saw Israel seize control of Jerusalem, which therefore allows Israeli assets in the US media to suggest that Sirhan Sirhan was at least partially motivated by the loss of the Holy City.

With the benefit of 50 years of Israeli false flag terrorism to educate us about their methods it is now abundantly clear that this ‘legend’ created for the patsy is a massive smoking gun indicator that Israel was behind the slating of RFK.

Israel always does this – blaming it’s enemies for crimes it has itself committed therefore the use of a Palestinian and one who was engaged in ‘anti-Israel agitation’ to boot says it all about where the finger of blame should be pointed. Ian]

Jordanian Arab Held in Shooting of Kennedy; Active in Student Anti-Israel Agitation


A 24-year-old Jerusalem-born Jordanian Arab student who was described as intensely interested in politics, has been identified and is being held as the assailant who shot Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in the Hotel Ambassador here early this morning. American and Israeli Jews, as well as Jews around the world, joined in the outpouring of grief and expressions of shock and disbelief over the shooting. Many organizations issued statements with these sentiments. There were prayers in many synagogues for Mr. Kennedy’s recovery and hopes that he would be able to resume a normal, healthy life.


The suspect, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, was born in Jerusalem on March 18, 1944, while the city was under British Mandate rule. He came to the United States on a Jordanian passport and was admitted as a permanent resident at New York City on Jan, 12, 1957. Police established that Sirhan was a student at Pasadena State College and was active in anti-Israel agitation of the Organization of Arab Students there. The fact that he had in his possession four $100 bills and a schedule of Mr. Kennedy’s June speaking engagements gave rise to suspicion that the shooting might have been organized as an Arab conspiracy. But in Washington, Attorney General Ramsey Clark said that preliminary investigation had not turned up any evidence of the existence of a conspiracy.

Sirhan, who is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail on six counts of assault with intent to murder, is one of five brothers. One of them named Adel, with whom he reportedly lived, was said to be so prejudiced against Jews that when he discovered last week that he was working for Jews, he quit his job.

(In Washington, members of Congress speculated that the first anniversary of the Six-Day War and Mr. Kennedy’s long-standing pro-Israel views motivated the assassination attempt.) The Arab gunman may also have been motivated by the Israeli-Jordan battle yesterday as well as the first anniversary of the Six-Day War, It was indicated. A witness to the shooting, Marcus McBroom, was reported to have quoted Sirhan as stating immediately after firing the shots that “I did it for my country (apparently meaning the State of Jordan). I love my country.”

A neighbor in Pasadena, Cal., where Sirhan lived, said that he hated Mr. Kennedy, contender for the Democratic Presidential nomination, because he is rich, and “is a collaborator with Jews.”


In New York, Dr. M.T. Mehdi, secretary of an Arab propaganda group, the Action Committee on American-Arab Relations, told the press that Sirhan’s act “reflects the frustrations of many Arabs with American politicians who have sold the Arabs of Palestine to the American Jewish voters.” He said that Sirhan “may have been inflamed” by pro-Israel statements made in recent days by Mr. Kennedy. Last Saturday, in a television debate with Sen. Eugene McCarthy, Minnesota Democrat who is a Presidential nomination contender, Mr. Kennedy urged that the U.S. send 50 Phantom jet fighters to Israel.

Dr. Mehdi declared that “it is this disrespect for the human Arab person which brings about this violence.” Speaking for the group he heads. Dr. Mehdi said. “We condemn the fact that Sen. Kennedy kowtowed to Zionist pressure to the detriment of American interests in the Middle East, as we condemn the act of Mr. Sirhan.”

The Israel Embassy in Washington conveyed personal messages to Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, the New York Democrat’s wife from Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Foreign Minister Abba Eban. Eshkol said, “In the hours of anxiety and struggle for Sen. Robert Kennedy’s life, my heartfelt prayers and wishes for his speedy recovery join those of countless others throughout the world. Only a few short months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting him and was greatly impressed by his intellectual alacrity and burning desire to serve his nation and mankind. May he soon be fully restored to his family.”

A cable signed by Mr. Eban and his wife Suzy said “all our thoughts are with you in this hour of anguish.” Maj. Gen. Itzhak Rabin, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, wired Mrs. Kennedy: “I wish to extend to you and your family our sense of shock and our fervent prayers for the complete recovery” of the Senator.

Commenting on the shooting, Morris B, Abram, president of the American Jewish Committee and president-designate of Brandeis University said: “As we join the world in praying for the recovery of Sen. Kennedy, we urge that all Americans confront themselves with the meanings of hatred and violence..We must dedicate ourselves more than ever to the proposition that peaceful expression of difference must be allowed to prevail. If we permit ourselves to allow hate to spread unchecked into violence, we endanger nothing less than our democracy and freedom.”

Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath, president of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (Reform), called for immediate legislation “which will not only severely limit sale of arms to private citizens, but which will go further and follow the British precedent by having American citizens turn in their arms.” He said “America cannot pose as a society of peaceful intent when its citizenry acts as though it can gun its way through frustrations and disagreements.”

  1. Interesting theory to blame the Jews and Arabs. But in this case, I do not think there involvement had as much political POWER as it does today. This appears to be just another twist on the many twists placed in history as to why a president, his brother, and the president’s son were all killed to keep them from staying in office or running for office. I would say this drama was strictly an American one with little motivation from any foreign power that our CIA and FBI did not bring into play. However, my opinion as a researcher at that time, it is not buited just a theory, but built on the actual events that occurred.

    • Is not just built on a theory, but on actual events that occurred, just not the events that the government stated were the “official story.”

    NOT American elites.
    Look at the RKM with headquarter in LONDON.
    When Lincoln was murdered, ISISRAHELL NOT existed but RKM.
    Same with AJ and RR.
    Same with Kennedy’s.

  3. Well Haganah or Irgun were not that smart or imaginative but certainly since 1948 it is valid to credit Israel with false flags across the Arab-West relations. I can think of another country that does it all the time throughout its history, blaming it on their enemies, their record is multiple times more perfect than Israel’s. Also that country/earthsolarsystemlandlordship virtually allowed, mentored and oversaw creation of Israel and outsourced its responsibilities over it. That is certainly a perfect A+ score in concealing and washing hands from.

  4. Ian: Please state what you believe to be the main motivation for these murders, first of Jack, in 1963, followed by Bobby about 5 years later. Aside from seeking to foment hatred for Arabs, presumably the first had to do with Jack’s stated efforts to remove nukes from Israel no? None of this was clear to me and I believe most Americans at the time. We had little choice but to swallow the official stories hook, line and sinker then. You must admit the Israels are very good at deception and lying and cheating. I graduated from Pasadena City College in 1958 an excellent public two year institution. Some of us who went on from there to UC Berkeley in physics were better prepared than students who had began at Berkeley as freshmen.

    • I haven’t studied RFK enough to say much as to the motivations for his slaying, however, I have studied the JFK case in sufficient depth to make a few comments. There is no singular reason for the killing of JFK, rather, there is a whole laundry list of valid reasons, they include the antipathy with Israel, the opposition to the Israeli possession of nuclear weapons, the attempt to ‘shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces’, the executive order that attempted to move issuance of US currency from the Fed to the Treasury, the opposition to the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover who were engaged in actively supporting and protecting organised crime, rather than fighting it, and the antipathy with Meyer Lansky and the rest of the Jewish mob. I expect that all of these reasons also apply to RFK.

    • “You must admit the Israels are very good at deception and lying and cheating. ”
      They appear to be so good because they have very powerful backers. From gate keepers at universities, to news and TV, movies, politics and in the end the financial world. They are the 2% minority but loaded with centuries of accumulated wealth and power. That’s what allows them to get away with this crap. If the Gypsies were to try it they would be swept up so fast you wouldn’t even think they existed.

    • I’ve often said that it’s not what we believe that is important, it’s what they believe, in the context of Satanism and the occult, in fact, I said precisely that to my friend Paddy last week when discussing the Vatican and ritual satanic abuse and murder of children. However, that said, numerology or whatever the correct term is, is often used as one of the red herrings they layer onto these false flag events in order to obfuscate and keep the nuttier conspiracy people chasing false paths. So yes, sometimes there is something valid to these symbolic/numeric aspects, but also, sometimes, there isn’t and it’s just obfuscatory nonsense.
