Who speak peace to their neighbors,
But evil is in their hearts.
The wise learn from the Bible and history to beware Babylonian envoys:
2 Kings 20
12 At that time Berodach-Baladan the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah, for he heard that Hezekiah had been sick [why how nice of him! What could possibly be wrong with letters and a gift showing "compassion" for Hezekiah's ill state?] 13 And Hezekiah was attentive to them, and showed them all the house of his treasures—the silver and gold, the spices and precious ointment, and all his armory—all that was found among his treasures. There was nothing in his house or in all his dominion that Hezekiah did not show them.
14 Then Isaiah the prophet went to King Hezekiah, and said to him, “What did these men say, and from where did they come to you?”
So Hezekiah said, “They came from a far country, from Babylon.”
15 And he said, “What have they seen in your house?”
So Hezekiah answered, “They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them.”
16 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the LORD: 17 ‘Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the LORD. 18 ‘And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.’”
The Jerusalem Post ('A Traveler's fanzine takes off' by Giden Keren, 07-08-96) reported:
'The one time The Traveller did run a political piece, it ruffled feathers with the local authorities. In 'Will Jerusalem become an international city?' by American writer David Ben-Ariel, readers were warned about a German-Vatican plot to take over Jerusalem, urged to take back the Temple Mount and dislodge 'as symbols of foreign occupation' Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
'David Ben-Ariel was a nice non-Jewish guy with strong views and a great love for this country,' says Nick Day, 'but he probably was talking a bit too much when he should have kept his mouth shut.'
Following publication of that article, Ben-Ariel was arrested and locked up for a week [actually two] before being expelled from the country. Ever since, The Traveller has been a bit sheepish about accepting political material... /
Israeli investigative author Barry Chamish mentions my unjust deportation in his book Traitors and Carpetbaggers in the Promised Land and remarks at how the Israeli government OVERREACTED to my article. He feels that's why they deported me: exposing the German-Vatican plot to occupy Jerusalem! I think that's definitely part of it but that it's all involved with highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount.

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
|Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski declared that a local Sages Council will soon be established, comprised of religious and secular leaders representing the three predominant monotheistic faiths.|
Making the announcement during a municipality reception this week marking the new year of 2007, Mayor Lupolianski explained that the council's role will be to improve and enhance the lives of the people of Jerusalem, to create dialogue and understanding between Jews, Muslims and Christians, and to overcome boundaries for all those living in the city.
"The council will ignore the so-called 'large, international politics,' which often works in the name of anonymous interests, with no regard for the people living in Jerusalem," Lupolianski said. "The council will set an example for peaceful co-existence and will enable us all to overcome difficulties, solve disputes, get to know each other better and share the vast knowledge we've all accumulated, all for one common goal - the [welfare of the] city of Jerusalem and its residents."
Sages Councils such as that announced by the mayor were common in several cities long ago. Their role was to consolidate ideas for the improvement of their respective cities.
Mayor Lupolianski came up with the idea to create such a council in Jerusalem following meetings he held with Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious leaders from various denominations. One of the topics raised in those meetings was the lack of direct dialogue between the various communities populating the city, which is one of the most diverse in the world. Sometimes, people who live just a few feet from one another needed a mediator in order to communicate, municipality spokesman Gideon Schmerling said. This lack of dialogue is one of the reasons Schmerling noted for tensions flaring occasionally between the various religious and ethnic denominations, with Mayor Lupolianski often called in to mediate.
In light of this reality, Lupolianski believes that regular meetings of the council, several times a year, will promote inter-cultural dialogue and improve the quality of life for all the people of Jerusalem.
"Woe to Ariel, Ariel, the city where David dwelt" (Isaiah 29:1).
The Vatican is pulling its strings, turning up the heat on Jerusalem, with all these wolves in sheep's clothing proposals. What a shame that Jerusalem's Mayor Uri Lupolianski is playing along with it, like Ehud Olmert, playing with strange fire that will burn all Jerusalem and scorch Israel.
The ongoing Holy See- State of Israel collaboration conjures up these vile ideas with the aim of undermining Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, and then when it's sufficiently weakened, brazenly insisting upon the implementation of the accursed UN Resolution 181 to deal the death blow to Jewish control of the Holy City and supplant it with German-Jesuit EU supervision -- as replacement theology demands.
Let Mayor Lupolianski spend his time more constructively by demanding Israel's 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places is enforced, putting an end to the Nazi-Muslim occupation of the Temple Mount where the Wakf discriminates daily against Christians and Jews. Remove the foreign mosques and prepare for the House of Prayer for All Peoples.

Holy See- State of Israel: “Some progress” in today’s meeting
by Arieh Cohen
Grand Master turns up the heat on Jerusalem
Open Letter to the Pave the Way Foundation
Open Letter to Moshe Katsav
Grand Master turns up heat on Jerusalem
Address of the Grand Master to the Diplomatic Corps
Rome, 9 January 2007
His Most Eminent Highness the Prince and Grand Master,
Fra' Andrew BERTIE
SOVEREIGN MILITARY ORDER OF MALTA
I will visit the Holy Land during 2007 within the framework of an international pilgrimage that I will be carrying out next October.
In this spirit I would like to recall the various observations which have been made over the years with regard to the problem of the Holy Places, and in particular the position of the Holy See in relation to Jerusalem. A city of three religions, it is at the same time a land of two peoples, Jews and Palestinians, as well as a World Heritage centre. Pilgrims from all over the world must be able to have access to it. It should thus be given a special, internationally guaranteed statute.
The Sovereign Order of Malta, for whom the protection of the Holy Places has always been an absolute priority in its mission in the service of the Church and in its hospitaller and humanitarian activities, is at the disposal of governments to help seek any kind of solution, bearing in mind the aspirations and legitimate interests of the different populations involved.
This is because Jerusalem must be a permanent place for seeking peace and reconciliation between religions, peoples and cultures. [Emphasis mine]
The cauldron that is Jerusalem is having the heat turned up by a series of planned events, the concerted efforts of Roman wolves in sheep's clothing, orchestrated by the Vatican. The Roman Catholic Cult, the Babylonian Mystery religion, covets the Holy City and aims on wresting control of Ariel (Jerusalem's nickname) from Israeli sovereignty by any means necessary. The Time of Jacob's Trouble is brewing in the North.
Due to the inexcusable increase in Israeli sins, especially their rejection of the miracle of 1967 -- the Six Day War that liberated Jerusalem and its biblical territories from Arab occupation, namely Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount -- and because so many Israelis tolerated the intolerable expulsion of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif and Shomron rather than return to God and remove the threat of sworn Arab enemies, the Great Creator God of Jacob-Israel will permit the King of the North (the imminent wannabe divine emperor elect by the German-Jesuits) to have his way with Israel, to pollute His Holy Land and stomp Jerusalem with his filthy EU jackboot for three and a half years -- a signature act that God has so decreed it (Dan. 12:7).
13 And the word of the LORD came to me the second time, saying, "What do you see?"
And I said, "I see a boiling pot, and it is facing away from the north."
14 Then the LORD said to me:
"Out of the north calamity shall break forth
On all the inhabitants of the land.
15 For behold, I am calling
All the families of the kingdoms of the north," says the LORD;
"They shall come and each one set his throne
At the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem,
Against all its walls all around,
And against all the cities of Judah.
16 I will utter My judgments
Against them concerning all their wickedness,
Because they have forsaken Me,
Burned incense to other gods,
And worshiped the works of their own hands.
Israel's election of the bought and paid for foreign interest party, the rotten to the core Kadima party of prostitutes and criminals, proved Israel was intent on going backwards, dead set on digging themselves in deeper, rather than going forward (as Kadima means "forward" in Hebrew, twisted purposely in true Luciferian style - Isa. 5:20) to get out of their national mess:
23 But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.' 24 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.
Both Torah-observant Jews and Christian Zionists warned Israelis against Kadima and encouraged them to remember the Land Covenant to keep it (it's the Promised Land of Israel). Men and women of faith implored Israelis to refuse to surrender to post-Zionist forces who would continue to dismember the Jewish Homeland to forge an accursed "Palestine" that would ultimately burn every Jew.
The Grand Master, quoted above, is thinly veiling his references to UN Resolution 181. It's been laying in wait all these years, like the secret Nazis -- both about to come back with a vengeance!
Catholic Europe is determined to restore their Royals to dormant thrones and revive the "Holy Roman Empire" with its crown: the Crusader-Kingdom of Jerusalem.
Treacherous Jews, UNJews, apostate Jews, aid and abet those who would undermine Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. Forces within and without the Holy Land are driven to help Rome fulfill its grand design and pave the way to transfer Israel's most prized possession, its priceless crown jewel -- the Temple Mount -- to the Vatican. Mt. Zion is already under siege, as they seek to secure a foothold to breach the Holy City.
The glorious good news, our glimmer of hope in this growing world of darkness, is that Two Witnesses will rise and shine and testify in occupied Jerusalem and face the nations and address Israel's captive audience -- in the spirit of Elijah -- and give hope and comfort that our God will come and save us. The unholy alliance between Ahab (Israelites and Jews) and Jezebel (Roman Catholic Cult) will soon be history, as we're assured its days are numbered.

Katzav was pushed to do the dirty work of the Sharon & Olmert regime, promising the Vatican control over parts of Mount Zion in return for -– a synagogue in Spain! That plan fortunately did not work, and the Vatican has not gotten control over more of Mount Zion: Yet.
Perhaps it was Katsav's failure to do the dirty work of treason for Sharon, Olmert & Peres that led to rape charges during the summer of 2006. Perhaps Peres would like to combine the posts of State President and Prime Minister in the near future and emulate Adolf Hitler as fuehrer here, and for this he needs Katzav out of the way.

But Abraham gave gifts to the sons of the concubines [Hagar was a concubine] which Abraham had; and while he was still living he sent them eastward, away from Isaac his son, to the country of the east. That's where the Arabs belong - away from Israel.
[The Families of Ishmael and Isaac] Now this is the genealogy of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maidservant, bore to Abraham.
Sarah, under divine inspiration, demanded "Hagar and Ishmael must go!"
Therefore she said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman [Hagar] and her son [Ishmael]; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.”
Yet Ishmael has caused trouble in every country they're in, not just with Isaac, Arabs fighting amongst themselves and with everybody else - Ishmael's brethren (from the concubines clearly sent God had Ishmael sent away from Isaac):
11You shall call his name Ishmael...
12 He shall be a wild man;
His hand shall be against every man,
And every man’s hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his [Arab/concubine] brethren.”
Meir Kahane, Israeli parliament member and rabbi was right: THEY MUST GO!

"Why Israel doesn't win the war"

Editor and Publisher
YERUSHALIYIM, Israelite Tribal Territories of Judah and Benjamin, Kingdom of David and Solomon, United Israelite Kingdom of Judah and Joseph, Fourth Day, Eleventh Month ("Shvat"), 5767; Yom Shlishi (Third Day of Week/"Tues"-day, January 23, 2007) Root & Branch Information Services [mailto:email@example.com] [www.rb.org.il]:
When the expulsion from Gaza was taking place, I tried to tell anyone who would listen: "There is a reason these actions are taking place and it is not because all of a sudden Sharon became a lefty".
Today, I am trying to tell people that Ehud Olmert is not telling the Palestinians "You have won: We will give you everything" because he has "gone mad" or because he is being "naive".
Olmert and Sharon before him, and Rabin before him, are doing exactly what they are told: Creating the conditions for future conflict.
Here is how the game works:
Jews were forced to leave Gaza "for their own good". A low-intensity war was planned (the one taking place right now) between Israel and Hamas. The new plan was to introduce a whole new batch of instability into the area. Just as has been the "program" for the past 80 years in this region.
As a result, the Jews could not be allowed to remain in their homes.
Why not? Because if you want to have a manageable battlefield, you can not have Israeli citizens in the middle of it. Hamas needed space to set up their operations -- training grounds and firing zones. They could not do that in crowded Gaza streets. So Jewish settlements were torn down and Hamas training facilities and rocket launch sites were erected in their place.
Israel could destroy Hamas tomorrow, just as it could have destroyed Hezbullah in less than three days had the army been allowed to. Every Israeli knows this. So how come that did not and does not happen?
It is not because the Israeli national leadership is worried about "world public opinion". The citizens of the U.S. and the rest of the civilized world would not have a problem ending the continued existence of Hamas. Yet Israel does not do this.
Israel does not exterminate Hamas for the same reason America never caught Bin Laden.
The reason why the U.S. invaded Afghanistan in October, 2001, was "because the Taliban did not hand over Bin Laden". But five years later -- the Americans still cannot say for sure whether he is even alive or not. With all the might and power of the U.S. army and armies throughout the Western World, and intelligence agencies throughout the world, this one guy cannot be apprehended.
He is either superhuman, or the Western World is incompetent. Or: The West lets him get away.
Same thing with Israel: Can the I.D.F. not know exactly where the rocket launchers are in Gaza -- and knock them out from the air? Of course they can. So why are Israeli leaders not doing this? Because doing so would dramatically improve Israel's position and strength, and those from abroad who are pulling the strings do not want a strong and committed Jewish State. They thrive on Israel being divided and weak.
It would not be possible for Hamas to exist if the Israeli national leadership did not allow it to exist. It does exist because having Hamas and Hezbollah around allows the foreign elements to intervene freely in the affairs of the region -- through the national puppetships of Olmert, Abbas, and Seniora -- from all sides. That is how the foreign elements force their way into the domestic affairs of the countries -- and pressure national leaders to do the bidding of foreign masters.
Why do they do this? Take your pick: To control the events. To keep the region in a state of permanent conflict. To sell arms. To keep the price of oil high.
The "why" may be less important than the fact -- not appreciated by all -- that this is just the way it is. And always has been. Hamas and Hezbollah and Bin-Laden, by being allowed to survive, serve a common purposes of the elite masters of war: Intimidate, divide and rule. Not just the Middle East. The "democracies" of the West as well.
Shalom and Chodesh Tov from Zichron Ya'akov,

I wouldn’t doubt the Israeli “leaders” will collaborate with the Europeans to permit and ENABLE the Islamofascists to inflict further damage to Israel, beating Israel down psychologically and physically, so that the Israelis will feel it “necessary” for foreign intervention and welcome them as “saviors” when Bible believers know a brutal betray is in store once the fox is in the chicken coop. Watch for UN Resolution 181 to be offered as the “final solution.”

Israel and Judah Must Get House in Order Before King Messiah Arrives
The Great Mideast Commission: Reaching the Cities of Judah
by David Bedein
At a time when a Palestinian Arab sovereign state is so widely discussed, very few have taken the time to consider the consequences of establishing such an entity. Here are questions that every citizen can bring to the attention of the US government which conceptualizes the idea and to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which seems ready to swallow such an idea:
1. Encirclement. Will a proposed sovereign Palestine not swallow up Jordan,
most of whose population is Palestinian, leaving Israel with a hostile state from the Iraqi border to the Mediterranean Sea, with a corridor across the Negev between Gaza to Hebron?
2. Israeli Arabs: Will the Arabs of the Galilee and the Triangle not sue
for "autonomy," and then l demand the fulfillment of UN Resolution 181-an
Israeli withdrawal to the 1947 borders (evacuation of Nahariya, Acre,
Nazareth, Jaffa, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Kiryat Gat and Beer Sheva)?
3. Terror. Why will a new Palestinian entity disband terrorist organizations? After all, Machmud Abbas has so far refused to dismantle or disband the Al Aksa Brigades of the Fateh which continue to fire missiles into the Western Negev.
4. Armament. Why should there be any expectation that a sovereign Palestine will uphold any commitment for demilitarization, since the Palestinian Authority never upheld any such commitment since the Oslo accords?
5. Refugees. Based on Israel’s surprising agreement to view the Saudi plan as a basis for a state, does that not mean that Israel will have to absorb descendents of refugees and displace thousands of Israelis from places like Haifa, Tfzat and Jaffa and 80 kibbutzim which rest on Arab neighborhoods or villages from where Arabs fled in 1948?
6. Air space. Will the Israel Air Force be forbidden from flying over the "West Bank," just as it was banned from the Lebanese skies?
7. Alliances. Based on diplomatic experience with the Palestinian Authority, will a Palestine not violate every prohibition on signing military agreements with countries hostile to Israel, placing the Iranian Revolutionary Guard on Israel’s borders?
8. Water. Like the Palestinian Authority before it, will a sovereign Palestine not carry out pirate drillings, and threaten the mountain aquifer of Judea and Samaria?
9. Jewish sovereignty. Will the momentum of a Palestine not erase the right of the Jews to the land of Israel in international consciousness?
10. Loss of independence. Will Israel not become a protectorate that is subject to the Quartet – the US, the EU, the US and the UN?

Silence = Death
We must plead on behalf of the innocent, and be the voice of those without adequate representation. The greatest crime against humanity is going on now! Yet millions of professing Christians look the other way in shameful silence: ABORTION! It used to be a country’s worst enemies who ripped up their pregnant women—now we’ve turned on ourselves. Don't abort our future: Think twice, choose life, let love grow.
Defend life: present the case of the preborn before the public, and rescue them from the abortionist’s kangaroo court. We’ve sacrificed our children on the altars of convenience, baptized our babies in blood, and trashed their grisly remains—if they haven’t been sold for Nazi experiments. Where’s the moral outrage been? Why haven’t we demanded that our government intervene? Stop the slaughter!
God sees the bloodbath we’re permitting. He knows the hard hearts, calloused consciences, and dishonest individuals that are involved and will bring them to trial: "Shall I not punish them for these things? says the LORD. And shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?" (Jer. 5:9). No wonder God’s going to allow our German-Jesuit enemies to be so cruel!
HITLER Will Judge Us!
Hitler’s Nazi Germany will rise up in judgment against our hypocritical nations! We condemned them and now we’re acting worse than they did! We didn’t buy their lame excuses of ignorance or blind obedience, and yet today we try to hide our horrors behind "it’s the law of the land."
We allow DEATH CLINICS in major cities, and support those mad doctors who ought to be tried for murder. We condemned those German businesses who became rich at others expense, and yet our land is filled with the abortionists' BLOOD MONEY! It’s not a God-given right to take the life of your child.
That some would argue it’s not a baby, and others attempt to justify this carnage…. It’s obvious we’re under a CURSE if we can’t even think straight! Our Puritan ancestors properly discerned, “Whom God would destroy, He first sends mad” (Deut. 28:28). God save us from ourselves...

"WHO MURDERED YITZHAK RABIN?"
Chapter Nine (Part Two): "The Kempler Film"
R&B Editor's Notes:
"Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?": The Root & Branch Information Services is serializing the book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?, by Mr. Barry Chamish, with permission of the author, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin (November 4, 1995 -- November 4, 2006).
The Bible Says:
"How is the faithful city [Jerusalem] become a harlot. She that was full of justice, righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver is become dross, your wine is mixed with water. Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves; every one loves bribes, and follows after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.
Therefore, says the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I will ease Me of My adversaries, and avenge Me of My enemies; and I will turn My hand upon you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and will take away all your allow; and I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors as at the beginning; afterward you [Jerusalem] shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and they who return of her with righteousness.
But the destruction of the transgressors and the sinners shall be together, and they who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinths which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the garden that you have chosen. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and his work as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them".

Chapter Nine (Part Two): "The Kempler Film"
The Kempler film reveals that the whole story is utter hogwash. A famous photo of Rabin being shoved into the car shows up on the film as a flash. At that point, we know Rubin, injured arm and all, is not on the ground, rather he is on his feet holding Rabin. There are 24 frames/second in video film, so timing events is simple.
From the time of the second shot to the fash, 4.6 seconds pass. Try repeating, "Yitzhak can you hear me, just me and no one else, gddamit" three times in 4.6 seconds. Then add the hiatus, a hiatus long enough for a man being shot to decide it is safe to get up, and think to yourself, "A defect in the weapon". Try all that for 4.6 seconds. Rubin's timing is simply impossible.
Further, Rubin is not filmed on top of Rabin until all shots are fired, and Rabin does not jump into the car. The photo of Rubin pulling Rabin into the car disproves that even without the added proof of the Kempler film, Rubin's testimony, to put it mildly, is not born out by the Kempler film.
Now comes the piece de resistance, the most haunting moment of the tape. Two seconds before Rabin is placed in the car, the opposite back passenger door slams shut. This segment has been examined and tested by numerous journalists, every shadow on the screen traced, every possible explanation exhausted and in the end it has withstood all scrutiny. Someone, an unknown fourth person, possibly the murderer, was waiting inside the car for Rabin.
When I show this segment to audiences, inevitably I am asked, "Why did they make this film if it is so incriminating?" I reply, "The film convinced the whole country that Amir murdered Rabin. People always say, 'But I saw him do it with my own eyes'. That is what the film was supposed to do. But the conspirators were so sloppy, they left in the truth. Either they did not notice it, or they thought no one else would".
So why did Yigal Amir's attorneys not tear Kempler to bits on the stand or use the film to its maximum advantage? Truth be told, Amir's attorneys either were not interested enough in his welfare, were not properly prepared or were not talented enough to challenge the kangaroo court head on. Take a look at how they handled the issue of the unexplainable closing door:
Defense: "After the event, the back right door of the car was also open".
Kempler: "I filmed what I filmed".
The end. No follow up. It is not that the defense did not have plenty of ammunition. On the night his film was shown on Channel Two in December, 1995, Kempler was interviewed by commentator Rafi Reshef. The fast talking, nervous Kempler was most unbelievable, as the following segments show:
Reshef: "Why did you wait so long to release the film to the public?"
Kempler: "A few reasons. I did not want to be known. Also, I thought it was forbidden to show the film so soon after the murder. The public needed time to digest it as a historic film...But after the Shamgar Commission got it, I kept hearing on the street that I am the sucker of the country. That really aggravated me, so I got a lawyer and decided to make some money selling it".
How altruistic! What Kempler forgets to mention is that he did not tell anyone he had filmed the assassination until two weeks later when supposedly he woke up to what he had and sent the Shamgar Commission a registered letter informing them. In the meantime, he was withholding vital evidence form the police.
Reshef: "Did anyone observe you filming?"
Kempler: "Yes, the bodygua...I'm sure I saw (singer) Aviv Gefen look right into my camera".
Kempler almost let slip that the bodyguards were watching him film. Indeed, this is apparent on the film itself when, just before the Peres cut, one of the bodyguards turns back and looks directly up to him. But Kempler thought the better of it and switched to a nonsensical fantasy involving a pop singer.
Reshef: "Why did you concentrate so much on the killer?"
Kempler: "I felt there was something suspicious about him. I let my imagination run away with me and felt murder in the air. It wasn't so strong when Peres was there but when Rabin appeared, WOW".
Kempler felt there was an assassination in the air and suspected Amir could be the assassin. This was truly a parapsychological feat but lucky it happened or he would not have bothered focusing on Amir. Lucky he just happened to be the only cameraman on the balcony overlooking the murder scene. Luckily, it was so dark at the murder scene few amateur cameras could have captured the act.
Reshef: "There has been much speculation why you happened to be the only one in the right place to film the assassination. How do you explain it?"
Kempler: "I felt someone caused me to be in that place".
Reshef: "What, are you a fatalist?"
Nope, a mystic, as we shall soon see.
Reshef: "Did anyone try to interfere with you?"
Kempler: "There were undercover officers around. One told me it was alright to film but I had to stop when Rabin appeared".
Now compare the next version of events with what Kempler testified to at Amir's trial.
Kempler: "An undercover policeman came up to me and asked me a few questions and asked to see my I.D. I showed it to him and he walked away. He stopped, turned back and shouted, 'What did you say your name was?' I shouted it back. He said, 'Good'. And that was that. The police had all the details of my identity".
So why did the police not call that night to get the film? What is described is a very friendly encounter, indeed. Here is how the incident was transformed for Amir's trial.
Kempler: "There was an undercover cop who told me not to film. I told him he had no right to tell me not to film. I asked him if something secret was going on. I told him again he has no right to tell me not to film. And if he does it again, I would take down his particulars and issue a complaint to the police".
A rather drastically altered situation. Someone thought that Kempler's explanation to Reshef about why he was permitted to film in such a sensitive security location was too weak, so he painted a new, tougher picture. An updated version of his previous explanation about why he focused in on Amir painted a much goofier portrait.
Kempler: "When I stood on the balcony, I spent a lot of time in the dark; and, to my regret, my imagination began to work overtime. I began to imagine many things, even G-d forbid, a political assassination...I have no explanation why I had this feeling. I'm not sure it wasn't something mystic".
And because of this mysticism, Kempler felt...
Kempler: The defendant stood out. I don't know what he did...but I recall he stood out. I can't recall anything other than what I filmed".
Kempler could not "recall anything other than what I filmed" because at the beginning of his testimony he says the film shown to the public "contained no changes or alterations". By the end, he admits, "There are gaps and there are differences".
Why the change of heart? Because Amir's attorneys pointed out some very suspicious contradictions in the film.
Defense: "We don't hear everything in the film but we hear lots, including shouts. So why don't we hear the shouts of 'They're blanks'?"
Kempler: "Don't ask me. I'm not the address".
Defense: "Yoram Rubin testified that he fell on Rabin. Why don't we see that in the film?"
Kempler: "I'm not a video or camera expert. I'm not the address for questions like that".
The address, of course, is the technical department of the Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services), where the film was altered during the time Kempler decided not to turn it over to the police or sell it. This was not a skilled technical department. While the film was being edited and altered, Yigal Amir was filmed a second time, during his reconstruction of the murder 13 days after the event. This reconstruction at the crime scene deeply compromised the validity of the Kempler film.
The first error made was enormous and was pointed out to me later by a man, who claimed he was the first to report it to the press. In the reconstruction film, Amir shoots with his right hand, as numerous eyewitnesses saw him do. In the still of the Kempler film released initially exclusively to the newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, Amir is shooting with his left hand.
That is not all. In the reconstruction film, Amir has bushy unshaped sideburns past the middle of his ear. The shooter in the Kempler photo still has squared sideburns at the top of his ear. Another person was superimposed over Yigal Amir for the still and there may be one possible reason why. The superimposed figure's arm looks longer, thus reducing the range of the shot, a necessity to be explained shortly. This is just one possibility. There are others, so far, less convincing. Nonetheless, for whatever reason, Amir's image was almost certainly removed from the Kempler film still and replaced by another.
The reconstructions belied the Kempler film in other ways, as reluctantly testified to by Lieutenant Arieh Silberman, Amir's chief investigator, at the defendant's trial.
Defense: "Did you notice the differences between the video shown on Channel Two and the film of the reconstruction? Did you see the reconstruction film?"
Silberman: "I saw the reconstruction. It was of the same event in principle but there was an obvious difference. You can see the difference".
Defense: "You're responsible for the defendant's investigation. Why is there a difference between the reconstruction film and the video shown on Channel Two?"
Silberman: "To my eyes, the difference isn't significant. The defendant doesn't think so. He never brought it up. I wasn't at the reconstruction".
Defense: "Why is there a break when we don't hear part of the audio?"
Silberman: "I didn't make the film. It was handled by the technicians of several units. I'm responsible for investigating the defendant, not the film".
Defense: (Amir now acts as his own attorney) "Is there a difference between the original film and what was shown on Channel Two?"
Silberman: "Could be".
Defense: (Amir) "What's the most outstanding difference?"
Silberman: "The position of the prime minister".
Defense: (Amir) "In the reconstruction, I go straight toward him".
Defense: (Amir) "And in the original video, I took a roundabout route".
Silberman: "According to what I saw, you circled someone before getting behind Rabin".
Amir reconstructed his alleged crime wrongly according to the Kempler film. He shot with the wrong hand according to the still of the Kempler film If Amir's attorneys had bothered to press the issue, they might have been able to construct a plausible argument that he was not even at the scene of the crime, according to the Kempler film.
