The Israeli lobby's influence
on the George Walker Bush (Bush Jr) Administration:
appointments of Israeli and Jewish advisors to posts in the
White House and Executive Branch
Ari Fleischer Official White House Spokesman for the
Bush (Jr) Administration. Prominent in the Jewish community,
he reportedly holds Israeli citizenship.
Richard Perle One of Bush's Foreign Policy Advisors
and chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. He had
worked as Bush's Jewish national security campaign advisor. A
very likely Israeli agent, Perle was expelled from Senator
Henry Jackson's office in the 1970's after the National
Security Agency (NSA) caught him passing Highly-Classified
(National Security) documents to the Israeli Embassy. He later
worked for the Israeli weapons firm, Soltam.
Paul Wolfowitz Deputy Defense Secretary, Bush's
Jewish foreign policy campaign advisor, close associate of
Israeli agent Richard Perle, and reportedly has close ties to
the Israeli military.
Douglas Feith Under Secretary of Defense and Policy
Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close associate of Perle and
served as his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others,
Feith is a pro-Israel extremist, who has advocated anti-Arab
policies in the past. He is closely associated with the
extremist group, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA),
which even attacks Jews who don't agree with its extremist
views. Feith frequently speaks at ZOA conferences. Feith runs
a small law firm, Feith & Zell, which only has one
international office, in Israel. The majority of their legal
work is representing Israeli interests. His firm's own website
stated, prior to his appointment, that Feith "represents
Israeli Armaments Manufacturer." Feith basically represents
the Israeli War Machine.
Elliott Abrams National Security Council Advisor. He
previously worked at Washington-based "Think Tank" Ethics and
Public Policy Center. During the Reagan Adminstration, Abrams
was the Assistant Secretary of State, handling, for the most
part, Latin American affairs. He played an important role in
the Iran-Contra Scandal, which involved illegally selling U.S.
weapons to Iran to fight Iraq, and illegally funding the
contra rebels fighting to overthrow Nicaragua's Sandinista
government. He also actively deceived three congressional
committees about his involvement and thereby faced felony
charges based on his testimony. Abrams pled guilty in 1991 to
two misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year's probation and
100 hours of community service. A year later, Bush Sr. granted
Abrams a full pardon. He was one of the more hawkish
pro-Israel Jews in the Reagan Administration's State
Dov Zekheim Under Secretary of Defense. He was
Bush's Jewish foreign policy advisor and reportedly holds
Richard Haass Director of Policy Planning at the
State Department and Ambassador at large. He is also Director
of National Security Programs and Senior Fellow at the Council
on Foreign Relations (CFR). He was one of the more hawkish
pro-Israel Jews in the first Bush (Sr) Administration who sat
on the National Security Council, and who consistently
advocates bombing Iraq.
Henry Kissinger One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. For
detailed information about Kissinger's past, read Seymour
Hersch's book. Kissinger had a part in the Watergate
crimes, Southeast Asia mass murders, Chile dictatorship and
reaped investment profits in Yugoslavia. He consistently
advocates bombing Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon
of the U.S.
James Schlesinger One of many Pentagon Advisors,
Schlesinger also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board
and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor. He consistently
advocates bombing Iraq.
Robert Zoellick U.S. Trade Representative, a
cabinet-level position. He is also one of the more hawkish
pro-Israel Jews in the Bush (Jr) Administration who advocated
invading Iraq and occupying a portion of the country in order
to set up setting up a Vichy-style puppet government. He
consistently advocates bombing Iraq.
Marc Grossman Under Secretary of State for Political
Affairs. He was Director General of the Foreign Service and
Director of Human Resources at the Department of State.
Grossman is one of many of the Jewish officials from the
Clinton Administration that Bush has promoted to higher posts.
Robert Satloff U.S. National Security Council
Advisor, Satloff was the executive director of the Israeli
lobby's "think tank," Washington Institute for Near East
Policy. Many of the Israeli lobby's "experts" come from this
front group, like Martin Indyk.
