December , 2010 -- Kissinger more critical of Soviet Jews than were the Soviets....???
On a side Note....
When it came to the demands being made by Soviet Jews for unrestricted exit visas from the Soviet Union to Israel, a temporary stop-over since many of them actually wanted onward transit to the United States, Canada, Britain, and Australia, President Nixon's National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger was more intolerant of the Soviet Jews' demands than was the Kremlin.
According to tapes recently released by the Nixon Presidential Library, after a visit by Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir to the White House on March 1, 1973, in which Meir pressed Nixon and Kissinger on applying more pressure on Moscow to allow more Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel, Kissinger told Nixon, "The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.”
However, the comment by Kissinger about Soviet Jews does not square with the clandestine support that the CIA was giving to Soviet Jews to undermine the USSR.
WMR has obtained from the CIA archives a translation of a Soviet book translated by the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service, titled "The Doom of the Policy and Practices of Zionism" (Obrechenost' Politiki i Praktiki Zionizma), by Leonid Berenshteyn, and published in April 1980.
The book describes how the CIA was using a network of Jewish Zionists around the world to accomplish much more than pressure Moscow to release more Soviet Jews to Israel but a plan to bring down the Soviet Union and other socialist countries. The book describes a CIA "Jewish" department dedicated to inciting populations in socialist countries and committing acts of sabotage. The book states: "The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, in which a Jewish department with about 5,000 agents in the USA and in foreign countries has been functioning since 1953, has a direct bearing on [Simon Wisenthal's] activities. The Jewish department organizes and incites subversive activities and espionage in socialist countries through the use of the five networks organized by the department itself [West Berlin, Brussels, Paris, London, and Vienna], and individuals brought under the influence of Zionist propaganda."
Interestingly, the alleged founding of the CIA Jewish department in 1953 follows by two years the appointment of the CIA's pro-Israeli James Jesus Angleton to the CIA desk responsible for liaison with the Israeli Mossad and Shin Bet....
The book accuses Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal of being a former Nazi agent himself: ". . . during the occupation of L'vov by fascist troops during World War II, Wiesenthal made a 'classical' prison break. A careful study of the circumstances surrounding the 'break' showed that Wiesenthal had entered into a secret conspiracy with the Nazis and went over to their service. We were informed of this in December 1975 by the newspaper THE INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE." The Polish newspaper Zholnezh Vol'nosti is cited as reporting that another stage of Wiesenthal's life was "collaboration with the Israeli embassy in Vienna, and his ties with the intelligence agencies of a number of imperialist countries."
Later, Wiesenthal's "Jewish Documentation Center" in Vienna was at the forefront of the campaign for increased Soviet Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union. Wiesenthal's activities are linked to Israeli propaganda organs like the "Voice of Israel," which are described as having more than the goal of increasing Soviet Jewish emigration from the USSR but to "undermine the Soviet social system from within by inciting nationalism and organizing 'internal opposition.'"
The Soviet book describes how the CIA, with Zionist organizations around the world, fomented anti-Soviet and anti-socialist nation propaganda campaigns with articles "specially fabricated by Zionist pen-pushers." The description is very similar to current anti-Russian campaigns waged by the CIA and George Soros-supported non-governmental organizations (NGOs) around the world....
Described in the Soviet book are the activities of CIA Jewish department-led psychological warfare activities, including "visual agitation and propaganda" by "former Soviet citizens of Jewish origin that had immigrated into Israel and the USA." These activities included "picket lines around Soviet embassies and trade delegations, provocations against Soviet diplomats and delegations from the USSR visiting capitalist countries, boycotts of road tours of Soviet performers and exhibits on life in the USSR, and organization of massive letter-writing campaigns and visa applications from Israel to individual Soviet citizens." One of the leading boycott advocates against the USSR was Professor Hans J. Morgenthau.
The campaign by the CIA and Israeli and Zionist organizations mirror current campaigns on behalf of Palestinians and against Israeli policies. Yet those campaigns are now condemned as "anti-Semitic" by organizations like the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and the World Zionist Organization....
The tract also references the nascent Jewish mafia in the USSR, one that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, would take over key Soviet industries, create instant billionaires, and establish bases of operations in such countries as Israel, Britain, and the United States and even dominate successive governments in Israel and serve as the leadership for the Israeli settler movement in the West Bank. This crime syndicate is cited as "parasites, swindlers, hooligans, speculators, extortionists, and misappropriators of the people's property." One such provocateur named is Anatoly Scharansky, who, currently known as Natan Sharansky, is now a leading figure in the settlers' movement in Israel and a key Israeli criminal syndicate member. Scharansky's activities with the office of Senator Henry Jackson (D-WA) and the Sokhnut international Zionist organization are described. Jackson's staff included many leading neoconservatives who would shape U.S. foreign policy in the Reagan and George W. Bush administrations, including Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and Lewis "Scooter" Libby.
Also listed in the book are the last names of three members of the CIA assigned or linked to the U.S. embassy in Moscow who carried out liaison work on behalf of the CIA's Jewish department: Melvyn Levitsky, Joseph Presel, and "Nathanson." Presel, the First Secretary at the embassy, later served as President Clinton's U.S. ambassador to Uzbekistan and was a firm supporter of the pre-Erdogan U.S.-Turkish military alliance. Levitsky was the Political Officer and a First Secretary in Moscow and later, U.S. ambassador to Bulgaria, Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics Matters, and deputy director of the Voice of America.
In June 1998, while he was ambassador in Tashkent, Presel met with his old friend, visiting Israeli Trade and Industry Minister Sharansky, who Presel was accused of maintaining espionage links with twenty-two years prior while both were in Moscow.
In 1977, the Soviet paper Izvestia described Presel and Levitsky as key members of the CIA's Jewish dissident recruiting effort in the Soviet Union.
Sanya Lipavksy, a Jewish doctor and a former dissident, described in the paper how the CIA attempted to recruit him. Two U.S. journalists in Moscow, George Krimsky with the Associated Press, and Alfred Friendly, Jr., former Newsweek correspondent, were also accused of participating in the CIA's recruiting activities with Soviet Jews. Both reporters denied the espionage charges. Levitsky was charged with trying to recruit a Jewish scientist at a research center near Moscow with Lipavksy's help.
The Soviet book exposes the activities of an Israel Defense Force special subdivision for foreign political terrorism, "Mitzvah Elohim." The unit was formed to commit acts of terrorism against Palestinians and conduct operations to incite infighting between Arab states. Mossad is accused of creating sabotage groups in western countries, including the United States and Europe, to attack "progressive Arab officials" and opponents of Zionism. Mossad is accused of working with the terrorist Jewish Defense League to commit bombing and arson attacks on buildings abroad, including the "UN delegations from the USSR, UkSSR, and BSSR." The Israeli "Security Committee," which directs terrorism and sabotage operations and is composed of members of the Israeli government and General Staff, is said to take "practically no account of the probable reaction of the world public, no matter unfavorable it might be."
The book describes Vladimir Lenin's abhorrence of Zionism and quotes him as stating, "Only the reverential philosophers of an extremist Jewish minority shout against the policy of assimilation. And it is precisely with such philisophers of Jewish extremism that the ideology of modern Zionism is related."
The plight of those Soviets enticed to emigrating to Israel is also revealed: "Jews who had yielded to Zionist propaganda and left for Israel are unable to endure the 'Zionist way of life,' and they end their lives by suicide. Hundreds of thousands aspire to return to their countries from which they came. In 30 years about a million persons, predominantly immigrants from socialist countries, have abandoned Israel....."
