|Israeli Spy List|
Pollard is hardly the only Israeli spy operating in the United States. He just had the misfortune to get caught. Here are just a few examples of the Israeli spy operations that have been detected.
1947. Information collected by the ADL in its spy operations on US citizens is used by the House Select Committee on Unamerican Activities. Subcommittee Chair Clare Hoffman dismisses the ADL’s reports on suspected communists as “hearsay."
1950 John Davitt, former chief of the Justice Department's internal security section notes that the Israeli intelligence service is the second most active in the United States after the Soviets.
1954 A hidden microphone planted by the Israelis is discovered in the Office of the US Ambassador in Tel Aviv.
1956 Telephone taps are found connected to two telephones in the residence of the US military attaché in Tel Aviv.
1954 "The Lavon Affair". Israeli agents recruit Egyptian citizens of Jewish descent to bomb Western targets in Egypt, and plant evidence to frame Arabs, in an apparent attempt to upset US-Egyptian relations. Israeli defense minister Pinchas Lavon is eventually removed from office, though many think real responsibility lay with David Ben-Gurion.
1965 Israel apparently illegally obtains enriched uranium from NUMEC Corporation. (Washington Post, 6/5/86, Charles R. Babcock, "US an Intelligence Target of the Israelis, Officials Say.")
1967 Israel attacks the USS Liberty, an intelligence gathering vessel flying a US flag, killing 34 crew members. See "Assault on the Liberty," by James M. Ennes, Jr. (Random House). In 2004, Captain Ward Boston, Senior Legal Counsel for the Navy’s Court of Inquiry into the attack swears under oath that President Lyndon Johnson ordered the investigation to conclude accident, even though the evidence indicates the attack was deliberate. Given the use by Israel of unmarked boats and planes, and the machine-gunning of USS Liberty’s lifeboats, the most likely explanation is that USS Liberty was to be sunk with all hands, with evidence left to frame Egypt for the sinking. This would have dragged the US into the war on Israel’s side.
1970 While working for Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson, Richard Perle is caught by the FBI giving classified information to Israel. Nothing is done.
1978, Stephen Bryen, then a Senate Foreign Relations Committee staffer, is overheard in a DC hotel offering confidential documents to top Israeli military officials. Bryen obtains a lawyer, Nathan Lewin, and the case heads for the grand jury, but is mysteriously dropped. Bryen later goes to work for Richard Perle.
1979 Shin Beth [the Israeli internal security agency] tries to penetrate the US Consulate General in Jerusalem through a “Honey Trap”, using a clerical employee who was having an affair with a Jerusalem girl.
1985 The New York Times reports the FBI is aware of at least a dozen incidents in which American officials transferred classified information to the Israelis, quoting [former Assistant Director of the F.B.I.] Mr. [Raymond] Wannal. The Justice Department does not prosecute.
1985 Richard Smyth, the owner of MILCO, is indicted on charges of smuggling nuclear timing devices to Israel (Washington Post, 10/31/86).
1987 April 24 Wall Street Journal headline: "Role of Israel in Iran-Contra Scandal Won't be Explored in Detail by Panels"
1992 The Wall Street Journal reports that Israeli agents apparently tried to steal Recon Optical Inc's top-secret airborne spy-camera system.
1992 Stephen Bryen, caught offering confidential documents to Israel in 1978, is serving on board of the pro-Israeli Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs while continuing as a paid consultant -- with security clearance -- on exports of sensitive US technology.
1992 "The Samson Option," by Seymour M. Hersh reports, “Illicitly obtained intelligence was flying so voluminously from LAKAM into Israeli intelligence that a special code name, JUMBO, was added to the security markings already on the documents. There were strict orders, Ari Ben-Menashe recalled: "Anything marked JUMBO was not supposed to be discussed with your American counterparts."
1993. The ADL is caught operating a massive spying operation on critics of Israel, Arab-Americans, the San Francisco Labor Council, ILWU Local 10, Oakland Educational Association, NAACP, Irish Northern Aid, International Indian Treaty Council, the Asian Law Caucus and the San Francisco police. Data collected was sent to Israel and in some cases to South Africa. Pressure from Jewish organizations forces the city to drop the criminal case, but the ADL settles a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed sum of cash.
1995 The Defense Investigative Service circulates a memo warning US military contractors that "Israel aggressively collects [US] military and industrial technology." The report stated that Israel obtains information using "ethnic targeting, financial aggrandizement, and identification and exploitation of individual frailties" of US citizens.
1996 A General Accounting Office report "Defense Industrial Security: Weaknesses in US Security Arrangements With Foreign-Owned Defense Contractors" found that according to intelligence sources "Country A" (identified by intelligence sources as Israel, Washington Times, 2/22/96) "conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally." The Jerusalem Post (8/30/96) quoted the report, "Classified military information and sensitive military technologies are high-priority targets for the intelligence agencies of this country." The report described "An espionage operation run by the intelligence organization responsible for collecting scientific and technologic information for [Israel] paid a US government employee to obtain US classified military intelligence documents." The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (Shawn L. Twing, April 1996) noted that this was "a reference to the 1985 arrest of Jonathan Pollard, a civilian US naval intelligence analyst who provided Israel's LAKAM [Office of Special Tasks] espionage agency an estimated 800,000 pages of classified US intelligence information."
The GAO report also noted that "Several citizens of [Israel] were caught in the United States stealing sensitive technology used in manufacturing artillery gun tubes."
1996 An Office of Naval Intelligence document, "Worldwide Challenges to Naval Strike Warfare" reported that "US technology has been acquired [by China] through Israel in the form of the Lavi fighter and possibly SAM [surface-to-air] missile technology." Jane's Defense Weekly (2/28/96) noted that "until now, the intelligence community has not openly confirmed the transfer of US technology [via Israel] to China." The report noted that this "represents a dramatic step forward for Chinese military aviation." (Flight International, 3/13/96)
1997 An Army mechanical engineer, David A. Tenenbaum, "inadvertently" gives classified military information on missile systems and armored vehicles to Israeli officials (New York Times, 2/20/97).
1997 The Washington Post reports US intelligence has intercepted a conversation in which two Israeli officials had discussed the possibility of getting a confidential letter that then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher had written to Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat. One of the Israelis, identified only as “Dov”, had commented that they may get the letter from "Mega”, the code name for Israel’s top agent inside the United States.
1997 US ambassador to Israel, Martin Indyk, complains privately to the Israeli government about heavy-handed surveillance by Israeli intelligence agents.
1997 Israeli agents place a tap on Monica Lewinsky’s phone at the Watergate and record phone sex sessions between her and President Bill Clinton. The Ken Starr report confirms that Clinton warned Lewinsky their conversations were being taped and ended the affair. At the same time, the FBI’s hunt for “Mega” is called off.
2001 It is discovered that US drug agents’ communications have been penetrated. Suspicion falls on two companies, AMDOCS and Comverse Infosys, both owned by Israelis. AMDOCS generates billing data for most US phone companies and is able to provide detailed logs of who is talking to whom. Comverse Infosys builds the tapping equipment used by law enforcement to eavesdrop on all American telephone calls, but suspicion forms that Comverse, which gets half of its research and development budget from the Israeli government, has built a back door into the system that is being exploited by Israeli intelligence and that the information gleaned on US drug interdiction efforts is finding its way to drug smugglers. The investigation by the FBI leads to the exposure of the largest foreign spy ring ever uncovered inside the United States, operated by Israel. Half of the suspected spies have been arrested when 9-11 happens. On 9-11, 5 Israelis are arrested for dancing and cheering while the World Trade Towers collapse. Supposedly employed by Urban Moving Systems, the Israelis are caught with multiple passports and a lot of cash. Two of them are later revealed to be Mossad. As witness reports track the activity of the Israelis, it emerges that they were seen at Liberty Park at the time of the first impact, suggesting a foreknowledge of what was to come. The Israelis are interrogated, and then eventually sent back to Israel. The owner of the moving company used as a cover by the Mossad agents abandons his business and flees to Israel. The United States Government then classifies all of the evidence related to the Israeli agents and their connections to 9-11. All of this is reported to the public via a four part story on Fox News by Carl Cameron. Pressure from Jewish groups, primarily AIPAC, forces Fox News to remove the story from their website. Two hours prior to the 9-11 attacks, Odigo, an Israeli company with offices just a few blocks from the World Trade Towers, receives an advance warning via the internet. The manager of the New York Office provides the FBI with the IP address of the sender of the message, but the FBI does not follow up.
2001 The FBI is investigating 5 Israeli moving companies as possible fronts for Israeli intelligence.
2001 JDL’s Irv Rubin arrested for planning to bomb a US Congressman. He dies before he can be brought to trial.
2002 The DEA issues a report that Israeli spies, posing as art students, have been trying to penetrate US Government offices.
2002 police near the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in southern Washington State stop a suspicious truck and detain two Israelis, one of whom is illegally in the United States. The two men were driving at high speed in a Ryder rental truck, which they claimed had been used to "deliver furniture." The next day, police discovered traces of TNT and RDX military-grade plastic explosives inside the passenger cabin and on the steering wheel of the vehicle. The FBI then announces that the tests that showed explosives were “false positived” by cigarette smoke, a claim test experts say is ridiculous. Based on an alibi provided by a woman, the case is closed and the Israelis are handed over to INS to be sent back to Israel. One week later, the woman who provided the alibi vanishes.
2003 The Police Chief of Cloudcroft stops a truck speeding through a school zone. The drivers turn out to be Israelis with expired passports. Claiming to be movers, the truck contains junk furniture and several boxes. The Israelis are handed over to immigration. The contents of the boxers are not revealed to the public.
2003 Israel deploys assassination squads into other countries, including the United States. The US Government does not protest.
2004 Police near the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Tennessee stop a truck after a three mile chase, during which the driver throws a bottle containing a strange liquid from the cab. The drivers turn out to be Israelis using fake Ids. The FBI refuses to investigate and the Israelis are released.
2004 Two Israelis try to enter Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, home to eight Trident submarines. The truck tests positive for explosives.
This brings us to the present scandal. Two years into an investigation of AIPAC’s possible role as a spy front for Israel, Larry Franklin, a mid-level Pentagon Analyst is observed by the FBI giving classified information to two officials of AIPAC suspected of being Israeli spies. AIPAC hires lawyer Nathan Lewin to handle their legal defense, the same lawyer who defended suspected Israeli spy Stephen Bryen in 1978.
Larry Franklin worked in the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, run by Richard Perle, at the time Perle (who was caught giving classified information to Israel back in 1970) was insisting that Iraq was crawling with weapons of mass destruction requiring the United States to invade and conquer Iraq. There were no WMDs, of course, and Perle has dumped the blame for the “bad intelligence” on George Tenet. But what is known is that the Pentagon Office of Special Plans was coordinating with a similar group in Israel, in Ariel Sharon’s office.
With two suspected Israeli spies (at least) inside the office from which the lies that launched the war in Iraq originated, it appears that the people of the United States are the victims of a deadly hoax, a hoax that started a war.
The leaking of the investigation of AIPAC to the media on August 28th, 2004 gave advance warning to other spies working with Franklin. The damage to the FBI’s investigation was completed when United States Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered the FBI to stop all arrests in the case. Like the Stephen Bryen case and the hunt for “Mega”, this latest spy scandal seems destined by officials who have their own secret allegiances to protect, barring a massive public outcry.
The organization at the heart of the latest spy investigation, AIPAC, wields tremendous influence over the US Congress. Through its members and affiliated PACs, AIPAC directs a huge flow of campaign cash in favor of, and occasionally against, Senators and Representatives solely on the basis of their willingness to support Israel. As an example, in 2002, U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, D-Birmingham received so much help from pro-Israeli pacs that 76% of his campaign budget came from OUTSIDE the state of Alabama, mostly from New York.
Let me repeat that. A Congressman AIPAC wanted elected received more money from pro-Israel groups outside his state than from his own constituents inside his state. Who is that Congressman going to be thinking of when he votes in Congress?
So here is the mother of all scandals.
For two years, the FBI has suspected AIPAC of spying for a foreign country, and for those two years (and for decades before) that group suspected of spying for Israel has been reshaping the US Congress for the benefit of a foreign government.

|The top secret Israeli-US program to establish "Al Qaeda"|
|July 28, 2010 -- The top secret Israeli-US program to establish "Al
Qaeda" Press clips gathered by the CIA and discovered in the
National Archives' stored CIA files point to an agency keenly interested
in any leaks about the highly-classified CIA-Mossad program to establish
Osama Bin Laden and the most radical elements of the Afghan Mujaheddin
as the primary leaders of the anti-Soviet rebels in the 1980s.
WMR has pored through the CIA files and a complicated picture emerges of America's and Israel's top intelligence agencies, in cahoots with Saudi Arabia, establishing financial links and carve out intelligence programs to provide manpower and financial support to Bin Laden and his allies in Afghanistan. It was these very elements that later created the so-called "Al Qaeda," which the late British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook described as nothing more than a "database" of CIA front organizations, financial supporters, and field operatives. However, one component omitted by Cook in the Al Qaeda construct is the Israeli participation.
Thanks largely to the CIA station chief in Riyadh in 1986-87, millions of dollars from the Saudi government, particularly then-deputy Prime Minister Prince Abdullah, now King Abdullah, and wealthy Saudi businessmen were funneled to the most radical leader of the Afghan rebels, Abdul Rasul Sayyaf, for whom militant southern Philippines Muslim rebels named their organization, the Abu Sayyaf group.

|WMR 'Innocence of Muslims' film ---Israeli-influenced media in full spin cycle on anti-Muslim film September 13-16, 2012 --|
|The Israeli-influenced American media is in full spin cycle mode
following reports that the anti-Muslim film, "The Innocence of Muslims,"
considered extremely blasphemous by Muslims, was produced by an Israeli
Jew named Sam Bacile. Bacile is now being identified by pro-Israeli
commentator Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic as an extremist Christian,
a meme that has been picked up by the Israeli media, including the
Jewish Telegraph Agency, and scores of Western media outlets.
Whether Sam Bacile is an alias or not is not the issue with who is behind the anti-Muslim movie. We have seen before how the media quickly buried Israeli connections to the 9/11 attacks, erasing from history the five "dancing Israelis" arrested after the attacks -- the only individuals arrested anywhere in the United States on 9/11/01 -- and Israeli "art students" who were living next to the alleged Arab hijackers in several locations around the United States.
Goldberg, who is a virtual propaganda mouthpiece for Binyamin Netanyahu, is making much of his interview with Steve Klein, who claims to have been a consultant on the controversial film. Klein, a Marine veteran, is a self-styled James Bond who told Goldberg, " I doubt he's [Bacile's] Jewish. I would suspect this is a disinformation campaign."
Bacile claims to have received $5 million from some 100 Jewish donors who were not named. Bacile said he employed 60 actors and 45 crew members in producing the film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a bisexual and pedophile. It is against Muslim teachings to create any depiction of Muhammad. Bacile has said he doesn't know who dubbed the movie into Arabic, a trailer clip of which was posted to YouTube under the titles "Innocence of Muslims" and "Mohammed Movie Trailer," a move that generated the firestorm of protest in the Middle East that led to the deaths of five U.S. diplomats in Libya, including the American ambassador to that country.
Interestingly, YouTube, which often succumbs to pressure from the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith to remove videos deemed anti-Semitic, has not moved to remove "The Innocence of Muslims" from YouTube, except in Egypt.
Posting anything under "Mohammed Movie" on YouTube or anywhere else on the Internet will generate an immediate negative response from devout Muslims. In 1976, when the movie "Mohammed, Messenger of God," starring Anthony Quinn, was released, there were deadly attacks in March 1977 by Hanafi Islamist radicals on Washington, DC buildings, including the District Building and the Islamic Center. Two people were killed in the siege of the District Building, including a reporter for WHUR-FM and a DC police officer. DC Council member Marion Barry was hit by a shotgun pellet that lodged above his heart. The radicals wrongly believed that Mohammed was depicted in the movie with some believing that Quinn was, himself, playing Mohammed. In fact, Mohammed never appeared in the movie, visually or verbally. The DC violence in 1977 about a movie that was merely rumored to depict Mohammed in a truthful historic epic was well-known to the producers of the latest film, which not only depicts Mohamed but does so in a vile manner intended to incite violence.
What is a disinformation campaign is the media's attempt to quickly erase any connection to the Netanyahu regime by decoupling the film from what was a typical Mossad "hit and run" attack. If Bacile or the individual claiming to be him is a evangelical Christian or an Egyptian Copt, as is now being alleged in the corporate media, why did he tell The Times of Israel that Jesus should be put on trial along with Muhammad? Bacile's exact quote was: "After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad."
Even with the involvement of Christian fundamentalists like the Gainesville, Florida-based Koran-burning "Reverend" Terry Jones in the production of the film, it should be noted that Netanyahu and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) maintains close links to a number of Christian Zionist organizations, even helping to fund their activities. Recipients of Israeli largess include Pastor John Hagee's Christians United for Israel and Christians' Israel Public Action Campaign (CIPAC).
There would be little reason why Egyptian Copts would produce an inflammatory anti-Muslim film. The minority Copts have lived alongside Egypt's Muslims for centuries and realize that any overt action by them against Islam will place Copts throughout Egypt in jeopardy. Last Christmas Eve, a bombing of a Christmas Eve service at a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt was thought to have been the work of Muslim extremists. However, the bombing was later traced to Israeli agents provocateurs who were bent on stirring up Muslim-Coptic violence in Egypt. The same Israeli signature appears to be at play with the anti-Muslim film and the attempt to place blame on Egypt's Copts. One individual who does not represent mainstream Copts but who has been linked to Klein and Jones is Morris Sadek, the head of the extremist and anti-Muslim National American Coptic Assembly, a fringe group among the Coptic community in the United States. In another irony, Sadek supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who he sees as battling the forces of the Muslim Brotherhood, and opposed the nomination of Elene Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court because he felt she supported sharia law..
However, as with all criminal conspiracies, and the film's production falls within the category of a hate crime, following the money trail may ultimately lead to the source or sources who commissioned the film. A small newspaper in California, the Willits News, is uncovering important details on the funding of the movie.
The paper reports that the film was produced by a California 501(c)(3) non-profit called "Media for Christ," which is based in Duarte and received a business license from the city in 2006. The paper quotes Duarte City Manager Darryl George who said the film was produced at the Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita. The paper interviewed a Media for Christ employee who denied the organization was involved with the film.
The movie played for at least one night in the Vine Theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California. Few people reportedly attended the showing. The 600-capacity theater is now a seedy and musty run-down version of its former self and available for rentals. Customers who have dealt with the theater claim the owner is "difficult" and has not respected signed contracts.
Backstage magazine published a casting call for the movie in July 2011. The film was billed as "Desert Warrior," and was said to be a "historical Arabian Desert adventure film." Many of the actors have said they felt duped after they realized the movie's actual theme. The Backstage advertisement spelled the name of the producer as "Bassiel."
Steve Klein, who has been busy disassociating Israel from the film, denied that Media for Christ was involved in the film and, although he served as a consultant on the movie, Klein claims he doesn't know where the movie was shot, merely saying it was filmed "somewhere in California." Klein is a board member for Courageous Christians United, which has ties to militant Christian groups. Courageous Christians has been linked to Jones's Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville. Both groups are considered militant hate organizations. Ironically, Courageous Christians United is also vehemently anti-Mormon and anti-Jehovah's Witness. Also ironic is the fact that Goldberg used Klein as a major source in debunking the Israeli connections to the film. Strangely, although Courageous Christians are opposed to Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Scientology, it does not fit the mold of similar right-wing hate groups because it is not anti-Semitic. Although the Courageous Christians site links to a number of other web sites that oppose various religious sects, no links to anti-Jewish sites appear anywhere on the list of links. On the other hand, Klein has been linked to neo-Confederate and white supremacist organizations in California.
Courageous Christians is a tax-deductible charitable organization thatb uses a mail drop of P.O. Box 1374, West Jordan, Utah 84084.
"Wake Up America," produced for The Way TV, lists the same Duarte address, 1020 Hamilton Road, Suite B, as Media for Christ. The CEO for Media for Christ and The Way TV is Joseph Abdelmasih of Arcadia, California. Records indicate that Media for Christ only employs between one and four people people and in 2010 had an annual revenue of $635,198. The non-profit's revenue total is no where near the stated $5 million budget for the movie.
The Associated Press is reporting that Bacile is actually an Egyptian Christian and ex-con named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who has used the aliases Nicola Bacily and Erwin Salameh.
In another ironic twist, joining in the meme that the anti-Muslim film was the work of right-wing extremists is the Saudi Wahhabist-funded Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is taking extreme "care" in not pinning the film operation on Israel. There are now questions as to whether Saudi-funded Salafists in Cairo and Benghazi coordinated their attacks on the U.S. diplomatic missions, WMR has previously reported on the close links between the Saudis and Israelis in conducting joint intelligence operations against Shi'a Muslim and Christian targets.
As far as the anti-American riots in the Muslim world are concerned, the corporate media has hit the ignore switch on the anti-Muslim movie and are, in unison, singing the familiar "Al Qaeda" refrain.
|WMR U.S. trained Muslim Brotherhood to bring down Arab socialist governments Using Central Intelligence Agency|
|January 17-18, 2013 -- U.S. trained Muslim Brotherhood to bring down Arab socialist governments Using Central Intelligence Agency-funded private foundations, the United States helped train members of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Lebanon, and Syria, According to an April 4, 1967 document recovered from CIA archives, the CIA funded the American Friends of the Middle East (AFME) and "other private voluntary organizations" to organize opposition to Egyptian pan-Arab Socialist President Gamal Abdel Nasser, Syrian Baath President Nureddin al-Atassi, the Baath government of Iraq, and Nasserite Lebanese Prime Minister Rashid Karami. The two CIA interlocutors with AFME were Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., the grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt and the CIA's senior Middle East officer who planned Operation Ajax, the overthrow of Iran's Mohamed Mossadeq and Virginia Gildersleeve, the Dean of the all-female Barnard College who enforced a strict quota on Jewish admissions, favoring German and Sephardic Jews over eastern European Ashkenazis who she believed were "crude and uneducated." AFME's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood were only discovered when the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) discovered the links and complained to Pennsylvania Republican Senator Hugh Scott. Scott indicated that AFME and "other tax-exempt foundations" funded radical Muslim Arab groups. CIA grants to AFME were made through the U.S. Information Agency, a State Department activity. AIPAC Chairman Rabbi Philip S. Bernstein complained that AFME was funding "anti-Israel and anti-Zionist views" within the Organization of Arab Students, which campaigned against U.S. support for Israel on over a 100 U.S. campuses. The complaint against AFME and the CIA came a little over a month before the Arab-Israeli Six Day War. Syria's government complained that AFME funded "secret members" who infiltrated "many Arab states." The term "secret members" was often used to describe Muslim Brotherhood operatives. Iraq accused AFME of conducting "espionage" and promoting "hatred and dissension." Aware that CIA money was being funneled to Muslim Brotherhood activists and other anti-Israeli groups, Bernstein questioned "the wisdom of any secret subsidies to American organizations which are engaged in public action or propaganda on the American scene." Assistant Secretary of State for Public Information Dixon Donnelley responded to Bernstein in writing and stated: "The President has just directed that no Federal agency shall provide any covert financial assistance, direct or indirect, to American private voluntary organizations and that any such support that has been provided shall be terminated as quickly as possible." Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. - CIA's architect of U.S. support for the Muslim Brotherhood. However, there is no actual proof that CIA indirect support to the Muslim Brotherhood ended with President Lyndon Johnson's directive. In fact, after maintaining low-level contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood during Anwar Sadat's presidency of Egypt, the CIA's contacts increased dramatically when the Muslim Brotherhood was used to recruit mercenaries to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in 1979. Instead of organizations like AFME, the funding for the Muslim Brotherhood operations came directly from Saudi Arabia with the support of the CIA. Once again, the CIA began recruiting Arab student talent on U.S. campuses. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, attended and taught at the University of California during the CIA's most active recruitment years, 1981 to 1985. Morsi has come under intense pressure from American Jews for comments he made three years ago in which he described Zionists as "bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians, . . . warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs." Forty-five years ago, the CIA funded the Muslim Brotherhood to disseminate the same type of rhetoric. The CIA's program to oust Arab secular Socialist governments using the Muslim Brotherhood has been a success with Saddam Hussein, Hosni Mubarak, Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, Muammar Qaddafi, and Ali Abdullah Saleh overthrown in Iraq, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Libya, and Yemen, Bashar al Assad on the ropes in Syria, and Algeria's Abdelaziz Bouteflika now facing cross-border "Al Qaeda" raids aimed at destabilizing Algeria.|
