Michael Collins Piper's The Final Judgment
The US mainstream media mentions many theories as to who killed John F. Kennedy on November 22nd, 1963: Cuban exiles, the family of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem, Fidel Castro, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, LBJ, the Mafia and the CIA. Another possible perp is the then-controllers of the Federal Reserve Bank. The US mainstream media never mention this, nor do they say a word about another prime suspect: Israel.
Michael Collins Piper's book, The Final Judgment, provides evidence in support of the theory that JFK was assassinated in a combined Mossad/CIA operation because he was an obstacle both to Israel's development of the atomic bomb and (since JFK was planning to withdraw from Vietnam) to the continuation of the CIA's heroin-smuggling operations in South-East Asia.
This book was first published in 1994. It was reissued as a paperback in 2000 but Amazon now lists it as "out of stock", and available only as a used book (priced at US$155 — over six times the original list price of US$25).
Below are given all eleven reviews of this book which appear on Amazon's website (as at 2003-11-22) and at the end is a message on this subject from Wade Frazier
The truth at last !!! February 21, 1999
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer
Mr Piper has tied up all the loose ends, and points the finger of blame where it belongs — Israel and the Mossad-CIA gangsters. If the American media were not a total captive of Israel, the facts put forth and documented by Mr Piper would awaken the American people to the fact that their government has been taken over.
Piper makes you see what you don't want to! March 26, 1999
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer
Piper does much more than convince readers of the multi-layered conspiracy to remove JFK from office: he convinces us that the facts have always been right before our eyes. "Final Judgment" is easily the most well-documented conspiracy book of our time .... a great — and frightening — work.
"Intelligence turns chaos into patterns." March 27, 1999
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer
This book is a milestone in American domestic politics. The information, the facts constitute an extremely powerful case that would stand up in any court room where common sense rules. The possible solutions to our major and burning social problems depend on our capacity to create and sustain these court rooms.
Most accurate and Best book I ever read June 6, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Texas
Piper has a uncovered probably the real reason JFK was killed.
Blinded by Hate March 15, 2000
Reviewer: tholmberg from Hoffman Ests., IL USA
This book is an exercise in tedium. Boring and poorly written, this book was produced mainly for Piper's fellow anti-semites who will eat up every pseudo-revelation of Israel's perfidity. It comes as no surprise to learn that Piper is also a Holocaust denier. Blinded by hate, Piper sees a Jew in every woodpile. The main thing I learned from this book was that apparently it is now possible to prove that ANYBODY killed Kennedy. Just pick candidate and then throw around wild and spurious accusations, then [sic] Unfortunately Amazon doesn't allow ratings in the negative numbers.
Israeli State Terrorism Exposed — An Amazing Book September 5, 2000
Reviewer: David L. Rubinstein from Tel Aviv, Israel
A landmark book for modern American history that should be on the bookshelf of every serious historian as well as every single concerned American. Let me give my reasons.
This book is an extraordinary feat of investigative journalism. The information and facts that Piper uncovers are used in an extremely powerful way to reveal a whole sequence of Israeli/Jewish actions culminating in the assassination of JFK (who was an implacable opponent of the Israeli nuclear weapons program of the early 1960's and 1950's ).
The depth and thoroughness of Piper's investigative journalism literally takes one's breath away. At the same time the book is very easy to follow and understand as Piper methodically builds up his damning case against showing the depth of Israeli involvement in the JFK assassination.
Once I started reading this book I could literally not stop until I had finished. I thoroughly recommend this book as a way to expand one's mind beyond the confines of the modern day media which has severely suppressed this book making it almost a taboo for mainstream booksellers to stock it. This is shown by the fact that it takes Amazon.com 4 to 6 weeks to obtain a copy.
As an Israeli/American peace activist I welcome this book . This book is especially topical today as the search for peace in the Middle East continues. As Israelis as well international Jews who care about our country I believe it right and proper to engage in an informed and vigorous debate about the undoubted wrong-doings of our government in an open and informed way. This is the only way in which the worst excesses of Zionism can be curbed. This book provides us all with just such an opportunity.
Final Judgment: The Missing Link In The JFK Assassination July 21, 2001
Reviewer: keke912 from Illinois
This author gives a compelling new look at the JFK assassination which deviates greatly from the popular belief of who was responsible for the assassination of JFK. Read for yourself who was really behind the tragic events of that day in Dallas, that cast a cloud over the world on that sunny November day and why the U.S. Government has gone to great lengths to protect the true murderers.
This book will keep you on the edge of your seats and is one of the greatest political nonfiction books ever written.
The Last Word on the JFK Assassination November 28, 2002
Reviewer: Mark Braver from Chicago, Illinois
There seems to be a lot of misperception of what Final Judgment does and does not say about the JFK assassination. The book does not say that "the Jews killed JFK." That's horse manure.
What the book does say is that:
When New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison charged businessman Clay Shaw with participation in the JFK assassination conspiracy Garrison stumbled upon the Israeli Mossad connection to the murder of President Kennedy. Shaw served on the board of a shadowy corporation known as Permindex. A primary shareholder in Permindex was the Banque De Credit International of Geneva, founded by Tibor Rosenbaum, an arms procurer and financier for the Mossad.
What's more, the Mossad-sponsored Swiss bank was the chief "money laundry" for Meyer Lansky, the head of the international crime syndicate and an Israeli loyalist whose operations meshed closely on many fronts with the American CIA.
The chairman of Permindex was Louis M. Bloomfield of Montreal, a key figure in the Israeli lobby and an operative of the Bronfman family of Canada, long-time Lansky associates and among Israel's primary international patrons.
In the pages of "Final Judgment" the Israeli connection to the JFK assassination is explored in frightening — and fully documented — detail. For example, did you know:
- That JFK was engaged in a bitter secret conflict with Israel over U.S. [Middle] East policy and that Israel's prime minister resigned in disgust, saying JFK's stance threatened Israel's very survival?
- That JFK's successor, Lyndon Johnson, immediately reversed America's policy toward Israel?
- That the top Mafia figures often alleged to be behind the JFK assassination were only front men for Meyer Lansky?
- That the CIA's liaison to the Mossad, James Angleton, was a prime mover behind the cover-up of the JFK assassination?
Why didn't Oliver Stone, in his famous movie "JFK" not mention any of this? It turns out the chief financial backer of Stone's film was longtime Mossad figure, Arnon Milchan, Israel's biggest arms dealer.
The very fact that the Israeli lobby has gone through such great lengths to try to smear Michael Collins Piper and to try to discredit Final Judgment gives the book great credibility. If the book was really so silly or so unconvincing, it doesn't seem likely that groups such as the Anti-Defamation League would go out of their way to try to suppress the book as they have. The fact is that Piper demonstrates that Israel did indeed have a very strong motive to want to get JFK out of the way and that numerous people who have been linked in other writings to the JFK conspiracy were (as Piper documents) also in the sphere of influence of Israel's Mossad. Not only Clay Shaw in New Orleans, but also James Angleton at the CIA, who was Israel's strongest advocate at the CIA and also the CIA's liaison to the Mossad. The Israeli connection is indeed "the missing link in the JFK assassination conspiracy."
The "Reader from Chicago" who wrote the review of Final Judgment posted here is really off the beam and I suspect he (or she) is deliberately distorting what Piper's book does say in order to try to discourage people from reading it.
The fact is that Piper's book documents (quite clearly, in my estimation) not only the means, opportunity and the motive for Israeli Mossad involvement in the assassination (working in conjunction with the CIA), but it is also quite fascinating and very interesting read. "Boring" is the last word I'd use to describe the book, and it is certainly not "poorly written."
What's more, the book is not — I repeat — not "anti-Semitic" and the book has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the subject of the Holocaust.
In fact, anybody familiar with any of the standard writings on the JFK assassination will recognize the names of some of the key players in the scenario Piper documents: Clay Shaw, David Ferrie, Guy Banister and James J. Angleton of the CIA — and none of them were Jewish. So where this reviewer gets off saying that Piper finds "a Jew under every rock" is beyond me.
I have read literally hundreds of books and magazine articles and other material on the JFK assassination and not in a single one of them — with the exception of Final Judgment — did I ever learn that President John F. Kennedy was trying to stop Israel from building the nuclear bomb and that this literally touched off a "secret war" behind the scenes between JFK and Israel's prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, who resigned (among other reasons) in disgust over JFK's policies with Israel. In fact, Israeli historian Avner Cohen in his book, Israel and the Bomb, documents this quite thoroughly.
And in Final Judgment Piper also outlines some interesting Israeli connections by people who have been linked to the JFK assassination and cover-up, including Clay Shaw of New Orleans. Even Israeli journalist Barry Chamish has written in an Internet review of Final Judgment that he finds Piper's Israeli connection (via Shaw and Permindex) quite convincing.
There was a controversy in the Chicago area following an attempt by the Anti-Defamation League (an Israeli lobby organization) and people associated with the ADL to prevent Final Judgment from being placed in the Schaumburg Township District Library. Chances are the Reader from Chicago is probably an ADL representative!
EVEN THE EARLIEST VERSION WAS BRILLIANT December 26, 2002
Reviewer: getridbs from Promis
I found the early version to be very well documented. — On a related note I recommend the reader watch the documentary program THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY as an adjunct.
The Truth has its Own resonance March 10, 2003
Reviewer: paulocal from Falls Church, VA USA
As one who has read over 200 books on the JFK Assassination, and engaged in research both as an individual and as part of various teams, I can say without fear of contradiction that Piper's book is now the definitive work on the JFK Assassination. "Final Judgement" is the most thorough, most honest, most penetrating, most factual, and most analytically complete and systematic of all that I have read so far.
The author builds an upwardly spiralling tapestry of well documented facts that connect the threads of the conspiracy as they ascend level by level from the ground up to the very tip of the pyramid. Along the way, he breaks the conspiracy into easily digestible parts. Otherwise its sheer complexity would be nearly impossible to follow and decipher. At each level, the threads of the puzzle are woven together in such a way that the fog from the labyrinth is slowly but inexorably lifted until eventually it is peeled back completely and the outlines of the conspiracy are laid bare. What is revealed is as convincing as it is scary. Someday America will have to face some unplesant truths about its democracy and about how it has been, and continues to be manipulated, if not completely commandeered by those whose primary loyalties lie elsewhere.
While the links at some of the levels may be tenuous, the author refuses to "fake or fudge the data" or to be "fatally selective" in what is included or left out — as was so clearly the case in Posner's "Case Closed," or indeed as was the case in the Warren Commission's own flawed report. Piper is intrepid in following his analysis to every logical conclusion — wherever they lead and whatever the implications may be. In short, Piper keeps his eye on the donout ("Big Picture") and not on the hole (inessential details). He focuses on the "why and how" of the conspiracy and unmistakeably the threads all lead back to Israel, Israeli super-patriots, the Meyer Lansky led "Jewish branch of the mob," and the Mossad and the international "agents of influence" under its control.
While serious researchers may quibble with inessential details in the study, such as tenuous links at some levels, or redundancies at others, those of us who have studied this issue since the days after the assassination always knew that the truth would have its own resonance — like the Garrison investigation did. We knew that the truth would have its own context, its own smell, like Peter Dale Scott's "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK" did. Piper's book has them all and in the grand tradition of Carl Oglesby's "Yankee Cowboy War," Micheal Piper has struck gold. He has hit the "mother lode," and in the process has pointed the finger at, if not tightened the proverbial noose around, the necks of the cabal of conspirators responsible for pulling the strings (and triggers) of the JFK assassination.
JFK assassination research has a new standard bearer. It will never be the same again. Because of this book, future research will begin to focus more on the "big picture," and turn away from constantly grinding, ad nauseam, at inconsistencies in the Warren Commission's Report. Compared to Posner's "Case Closed," Final Judgement is a masterpiece.
A message on this subject (of 2003-09-29) from Wade Frazier to Jeff Rense:
Hi Jeff: I am responding to this link on JFK and Israel: http://www.rense.com/general42/enemies.htm What is being left out of that page on Michael Collins Piper's book is that one of the most compelling pieces of evidence in it is Gary Wean's testimony. Gary was an LAPD cop who heard straight from John Tower, a few weeks after the JFK hit, what Oswald's real involvement was. Audie Murphy and Bill Decker were also there to hear John's tale. Gary may have even given Piper the idea for his book. Basically, Oswald was a military intelligence operative who E. Howard Hunt was using to fabricate a fake assassination attempt on JFK to justify invading Cuba. Then a real assassination was pulled off by somebody, and therein lies the mystery. I write about Gary's testimony, and how closely it fits the recently disclosed Operation Northwoods scenario, here: http://ahealedplanet.net/cover-up.htm#wean Best wishes in your continued efforts, Wade Frazier
