government insistence that no such photographs exist, some three years
ago, I received a dozen photos of the backstage "sterile area"
two minutes before and immediately after Yigal Amir shot his blanks
at Yitzhak Rabin. The photos were acquired partly by chicanery, which
some day I'll explain, and partly through a reliable source. One series
of photos shows Shimon Peres conducting his nefarious murder plot stage
by stage. Not one magazine or major internet site has ever published
these shots and I can only guess why.
Another photo shows the moment Yigal Amir was arrested. The arresting
officer's watch captures the exact time of the arrest; 9:31. The watch
was blown up and highlighted before I released it and it was reprinted
in dozens of Israeli magazines and websites alongside the conclusion
of the Shamgar Commission that Rabin was shot at 9:50. The implication
was clear to everyone; If Shamgar was telling the truth, which he wasn't,
Amir was under arrest 19 minutes before Rabin was shot. Some alibi!
In fact, Shamgar deliberately falsified the time of the shooting to
protect Rabin's driver, who, otherwise, would have been driving for
22 minutes to complete the 2 minute hop to Ichilov Hospital. Previously,
this photo had already been published in Yediot Achronot, the country's
most popular newspaper, without anyone understanding the implications.
On November 3, '05, Israel's second tv channel broadcast a breakthrough
documentary proving Rabin was shot a third time from the front. This
was my claim of eight years and it appeared to vindicate my work. But
the film's director, Naftali Glicksberg, could not allow that to happen.
During the roundtable discussion which followed the screening, he viciously
attacked my integrity without naming me. The photo of the arrest was
a complete fabrication, he said, and someone, which had to be me, changed
the watch to read 9:31 when in fact, in the original shot, the watch
read 9:53. Some claim since my source never fabricated evidence and
I sure didn't.
And this lie began gaining currency. A few days later I met a youthful
reporter from Makor Rishon who was covering the Rabin murder conspiracy
and offered him the full set of pictures. Young Jimmy Olsen of Makor
Rishon turned down the offer claiming I had no right to offer the photos
for publication, like they were copyrighted by the Shabak, and anyway,
I had fabricated the watch shot.
The next week I was interviewed at great length by a genuine reporter,
Yonathan Gat, of Israel's People magazine, Anashim. This publication
is popular among the nation's media crowd and yuppies and the result
was highly professional. For one thing, the magazine became the first
to publish two of the backstage shots.
During the course of the three day interview, I received a visit from
two gentlemen, today respected physicians, who in their youth briefly
dabbled with Avishai Raviv. Raviv, as we know, has disappeared from
Israel and no one knows where to find him. Except they spotted him in
Budapest, Hungary working as a senior citizens' helper. I gave Gat the
scoop and his magazine turned to the Shabak and asked its spokesman
if the information was accurate. The Shabak refused to respond.
Gat then turned to a sensitive issue. He played me the tape of Glicksburg
calling the watch photo a fabrication and asked for my reaction. Since
I didn't fabricate it, I suggested that he contact the photographer.
That could be done by phoning the photo dept. of Yediot Achronot. He
did so and was greeted with hostility. The man on the phone was sick
of fielding inquiries about the photo from journalists. The photo, though,
was no longer in the Yediot archives but when it was there, the watch
So Gat took the next obvious step; he asked for the photographer's name
and phone number. The name was Pablo Bichman but no number existed because
Bichman committed suicide a few years ago, about the time I first released
his watch shot.
My, my. Another "suicide" around Rabin. He joins such august
company as three of Rabin's bodyguards, the Bar Ilan student David Newman,
who on the night of the murder sent an e-mail with his suspicions about
Amir to newsgroups, and Avishai Raviv's Russian companion, one Ariel,
who "jumped" to his death from a building in Dimona. One can
only imagine what Pablo Bichman's lens captured that led to his early
Gat quizzed Oren Agmon, head of Yediot's photo bureau and he told him,
"The real picture shows the watch at 9:50. Pablo Bichman left the
paper well before he killed himself. Any attempt to connect the photo
with a conspiracy about his suicide is ridiculous."
The Anashim article is essential reading about the Rabin assassination
and treats me more than fairly. It's on the kiosk and supermarket stands
until Dec. 6. Israeli readers, if you can't find it, order by e-mail

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon spoke this evening (Tuesday), 22.11.05,
Spanish King Juan Carlos I de Bourbon, who had telephoned in order to
him to attend the gathering to mark the 10th anniversary of the Barcelona
Conference. The Spanish monarch said many European and Arab leaders
as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika
and Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali - will attend and emphasized
that Prime Minister Sharon’s participation would be very important
advancing relations between Israel and Arab countries. The Spanish King
reiterated the international community’s high esteem for the Prime
and the steps he has taken in the framework of the Disengagement Plan.
Prime Minister Sharon thanked Spanish King Juan Carlos I and said that
would be happy to attend but will be unable to do so in light of the
domestic political situation. The Prime Minister said that he decided
bring the elections forward, quit his party and establish a new party
order to advance the things he believes in.
Prime Minister Sharon said that after the elections he would be happy
visit Spain and meet with the King. The Prime Minister invited the Spanish
monarch to visit Israel.
From the first day of the Gush Katif expulsion, I warned my readers
that the government would crush the refugees and give them nothing but
empty promises. I insisted they had to fight for their rights immediately
or they would suffer catastrophe. I further warned, that anyone who
propped up their misery through charity would be dooming the refugees
to permanent poverty. I wish it wasn't true, but all media reports illustrate
that in just three months, the once thriving residents of Gush Katif
have sunk into violence, despair, divorce, drug abuse, crime and hopelessness.
So keep on giving til it hurts and liberate the Yesha Council and government
from any responsibility for their recklessness.
Yesha Council´s Disengagement Struggle Advisor to Head DM Mofaz´s
Campaign to Lead Likud
21:21 Nov 27, '05 / 25 Cheshvan 5766
Political advisor to the Yesha Council (of Judea and Samaria communities),
Yuval Porat, will head Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz's campaign to head
the Likud Party. Porat served as advisor to the Yesha Council over the
past year and was one of the leading strategists behind the campaign
against the Disengagement Plan – ostensibly out of ideological
identification with the cause.
He said Sunday that after deep internal ideological conflict he decided
to help Mofaz, even though the Defense Minister was one of the main
backers of the expulsion of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria.
Sometimes I have to wonder Who is guiding this upsetting work of mine.
My readers have no idea how close this whole enterprise came to a complete
collapse. My printer almost bankrupted me.
Publishers have deceived me time after time and I got the hint a few
years ago that I could only trust myself to print and sell my books.
For these past few years, I would give my printer a security check,
sell the books, repay him, he would rip up the check and we would begin
the process again. Two months ago, I received a court order to repay
a substantial debt I had accumulated. For the previous few payments,
the printer did not destroy the security checks after I covered them.
In fact, he cashed them a second time in what is known here as the grey
market. Abroad, this market is known as loan sharks.
In short, out of nowhere I was being hounded daily by the mafia.
The printer was well aware that he had acted illegally, but didn't have
the funds to extricate himself, let alone me, from the quagmire. I went
to the police and reported the fraud and hired a lawyer. He told me
there was only one way out for both me and the printer. I would have
to buy the the printer's stock of books and he would repay the thugs.
If I didn't, not only would I be forced to pay a debt I didn't accumulate,
I wouldn't have any books to sell. I would be required to reprint everything
anew at a cost well beyond what was remotely possible for me. So I agreed
to the proposal, not knowing if I could actually raise the funds.
Last week, I was down to one copy of Save Israel, and not a baker's
dozen of Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust in either Hebrew
or English. The situation was even worse with the Last Days Of Israel
in both languages. Unless I came up with a significant chunk of money
within a few days, I would have to shut down for good.
Last Sunday, a gentleman named Natan called me. He does not want to
be named beyond that. I can say he is a gifted musician and lyricist.
He wanted to meet me in Jerusalem and said he had a little gift for
me. I liked the man and agreed to meet him, expecting a modest token
All I can say is, it wasn't modest. I was a third of the way to saving
my little enterprise.
On Thursday, I was in despair. I still couldn't find the rest. I was
sure the end would come the following week. I would have to inform my
readers that I had no more books, couldn't afford to reprint and would
have to abandon ship. I had survived by a thread's breadth until now
and now I was in too deep to climb back out.
On Friday a letter came from Brian Shultz of New Jersey. It simply read,
"A contribution." It was the biggest contribution I had ever
received. It was unsolicited. And it covered the debt TO THE EXACT PENNY.
And that has to be divine intervention. I am certain Brian and Natan
were guided and will be rewarded, even if my only show of gratitude
is to keep on writing for them and for Israel.
