KGB

Puppets & Players III: Le Cercle

In June 1997, The Independent ran one of the very few reports about Le Cercle stating that it was: “One of the most influential, secretive, and it goes without saying, exclusive political clubs in the West … One member contacted by this newspaper said he could not talk about it ‘even off, off the record’. Another simply put the phone down … The source of its funding is a mystery…” [1] Joël van der Reijden has extended the research on Le Cercle with his well sourced 2006 article, some of which will form the following information. [2] Readers are encouraged to embark on their own investigations in order to shine more light on one of the most secretive Western-oriented organisations within the Three Establishment Model (3EM).

Previously known as the ‘Pinay Circle’ or the ‘Cercle Pinay’, Le Cercle (The Circle) is a trans-national think-tank, discussion group and strategic board for politicians, bankers, media chiefs, corporate executives police, military and intelligence agents. Its beliefs stem from allegiance to the British aristocracy and the Vatican wrapped up with fascistic European Synarchy. It is fanatically anti-communist seeing a KGB conspiracy behind every international event. It is through this group that the Vatican Pan Europa Network functions with members from Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta on board, headed by Otto von Habsburg as representative until 2011. Since it came to the attention of researchers, largely thanks to van der Reijden, it has remained highly secretive and unknown to the public.

Merging with the Synarchists’ desire for an integrated European State, the whacky intent of the Vatican sect is to see its own brand of New World Order in the form of an Imperium Romanum Sacrum or New Holy Roman Empire. The British Synarchists are now less interested in joining the EU in comparison to the past now that the possibility of leading the EU Superstate is unlikely thanks to the rise of the Franco-German Alliance. It is here that American members are keen to exert influence and join forces. And since the break-up of the Euro is now an inevitability (it was never meant to be a long-term currency) the project that was the European Union is coming to and end, in the hope that a different form of union can emerge from the coming ashes…

Le Cercle, as they name implies, has its origins in France as the brainchild of Jean Violet, who formed the group in 1951. Violet was a known Nazi collaborator and a member of Comité Secret pour l’Action Revolutionnaire (CSAR), a fascist secret society with occult overtones. It was said by some to have been part of the Synarchist movement seeking to undermine the French Republic in preparation for the Nazi invasion. [3] It was after the war that Violet came into contact with Antoine Pinay who was in bed with Opus Dei and French Intelligence (SDECE). This was the start of Violet’s wide-ranging network which extended from senior Opus Dei officials and Vatican intelligence to the European Centre of Documentation and Information (CEDI) which was part of the Pan Europa Union set up in 1923 by Count Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, son of an Austro-Hungarian diplomat and quickly patronized by the Habsburgs, the Vatican, and eventually Opus Dei to become the right wing Vatican Pan Europa network. The Pan Europa Union’s objectives were to keep the Soviets out of Europe, and to create a Roman Catholic-oriented European Superstate. Violet’s connections even got the attention of the Head of German intelligence and former Nazi General Reinhard Gehlen who recruited him due to his networking capital within Le Cercle. [4]

Throughout the 1950’s and early 60’s Pinay and Violet set about recruiting Franco-German members to implement the vision of a United European State. This was after all, a key strategy of the Nazi Third Reich should Germany lose the war for Germany to dominate Europe economically if not ideologically. [5]  Two of these early members were Robert Schuman French prime minister from 1947 to 1948 and French foreign minister from 1948 to 1953 and Jean Monnet, Planning Commissioner of the National Economic Council from 1945 to 1952. Both were connected to top level economic and political circles in North America, the UK, and Western Europe. Monnet was particularly strong in pushing for an integrated Europe in the aftermath of WWII. He was to become the architect and visionary of the kind of Europe le Cercle members wished to see, by forging high-level links within the Anglo-American Establishment and British aristocracy and overseeing organization of the Pilgrim’s Society. Anyone who was anyone knew Monnet and who was one of the primary Elite intermediaries of the 1930s 40s and 50s. Early members included Lord Kindersley of the Bank of England; Arthur Salter a European Federalist and one of the core leaders of the Round Table; US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles; Lady Nancy Astor and the Earl of Perth, Sir Eric Drummond. [6]

The Venetian Black nobility line found it’s connection to Le Cercle via Bilderberg co-founder and Vatican agent Joseph Retinger when Monnet organized the May 1948 Congress of Europe, a project of the United Europe Movement in The Hague. CIA heads Allen Dulles and Bill Donovan were present marking the beginning of a financial support system the United European Movement in the following decades.

According to Joël van der Reijden, Le Cercle member Robert Schuman:

“… proposed the so called ‘Schuman Plan’, which became the basis for the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). It was established in 1952 and is usually seen as the birth of the European Union. In reality, Monnet, who became the first chairman of the ECSC’s High Authority, had entirely written the ‘Schuman Plan’. And interestingly, even this might only partially be true, as Monnet’s structure for Europe turned out to be a slightly adapted version of Arthur Salter’s 1931 paper ‘The United States of Europe’, which originally advocated a federal Europe within the framework of the League of Nations. Both men worked high up in the League of Nations and had a close relationship to the leading Anglo-American families….” [7]

With Monnet’s repeated attempts to create a European Defence Community (EDC) failing to materialize he founded the very low-profile Action Committee for the United States of Europe (ACUSE) with a view to pushing forward the integration of European nations. This would later be part of the immense lobbying efforts for the creation of the European Economic Community (EEC) as well as the 1957 Treaty of Rome which would inspire many other EU integrationist organizations and bodies. The Pilgrims Society, Bilderberg Grp; the Rockefeller family and members of future Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission organisations were crawling all over the European initiatives.

By 1961, Monnet’s formidable networking oversaw the creation of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) which has since become the European contribution to the World State vision and linking the globalization imperatives of the Structural Adjustment Team of the IMF, WTO and the World Bank. Monnet as Le Cercle representative wasn’t finished however. On a synarchist roll, talks with which UK Prime Minister Edward Heath followed along with the entry of Britain into the European Common Market thanks to input from Vatican mover David Drummond who oiled the wheels of Heath’s awareness. Entry of the European Economic Community was a foregone conclusion by 1973.

Jean Monnet also exerted pressure and influence in creating and strengthening Franco-German alliances so that it would hopefully, under synarchist leverage, have the final say in the destiny of European integration and the long-hoped for European block. It was however, because of De Gaulle’s realization that the Anglo-American Establishment and the synarchists of the time were not in line with a more autonomous and agriculturally independent states within Europe that he became a target for those pushing for a Federal Europe. De Gaulle wasn’t just being nationalistic here. He was a keen elder statesman and knew what forces were at work behind the scenes.

Citing a need to maintain an independent military strategy, De Gaulle Withdrew from NATO, expelled Allied forces from France and attempted to establish better ties with Communist Russia all of which was on top of his decision to withdraw from Algeria. Consequently, several assassination attempts were made on his life. The most famous of these was by the settlers’ resistance group Organisation de l’armée secrète (OAS) in August 1962 when he and his wife’s car was sprayed with machine gun fire arranged by Colonel Jean-Marie Bastien-Thiry at Petit-Clamart. The Colonel had been born from a family of Catholic military officers and married to the daughter of Georges Lamirand who had been Vichy France General Secretary of Youth from September 1940 to March 1943. He was also a member of the organization, “Vieil État-Major.” Jean Cantelaube, a former security officer of De Gaulle, was recently identified as an intelligence agent who provided information to Bastien-Thiry’s organization, thus making a possible extra link to Le Cercle, traditionally embedded in French Intelligence. [8] This was more than enough to make him a target of Le Cercle, and though no evidence exists in any participation in the assassination plot, given Bastien-Thiry’s background it is more than a probability that Le Cercle, if not complicit, would have been clapping their hands with glee at the opportunity.

Le Cercle’s primary intelligence go-between and PR guru journalist Brian Crozier was perhaps the most efficient and effective in disseminating the KGB-under-the-bed propaganda which was drawn from the group’s intense hatred of all things communist. Soviet infiltration plots notwithstanding, it is far more likely that Capitalist-Communist hybrids of corporatism encouraged by the Rockefellers were dominating rather than there being KGB agents everywhere as Le Cercle members claimed. (If we keep in mind that it is essential psychopathy that uses any ideology to further its ends, it is not so much about the evil of communist or capitalist influence as it is the importance of psychopathic clusters to maintain their dominance over ordinary people. To do that, they must infiltrate all religious, political and social institutions in order to progressively hijack certain principles and forge new ones. Thus setting one belief system against another – sometimes in subtle ways – is always the name of the game. So, let’s not get too caught up on polarities. Suffice to say that that fascism, socialism, capitalism and communism are drawn from the same source of distortion, their initial wisdom distorted and used against ordinary people to keep them in spiritual bondage. Le Cercle plays it’s part in that endless divide and rule, even perhaps within the Establishment itself).

To give the reader some idea as to the many and varied networks le Cercle members move in, a random selection of influential members, attendees and Chairpersons follows:

Otto von Hapsburg – As an Austrian member of the Royal House of Hapsburg. The eldest son of Charles I and IV, the last Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary, and his wife, Zita of Bourbon-Parmahe. Strongly anti-Nazi and anti-communist. A Knight of Malta, he was an enthusiastic advocate of Pan-Europeanism. His family has strong historical ties to the Vatican and all things Catholic. Died in 2011.

Sir Peter Tennent – Banker and corporate executive. Heavily involved in War-time intelligence activities after being recruited by Colonel Sir Charles Hambro for the Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1940. A Knight Bachelor of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George since 1972. He was a member and CEO of numerous foundations, trusts, hedge funds and corporations. Tennent was also a member of private sector intelligence group “The 61” and an Advisor to Pilgrims Society controlled Barclays Bank. Before he died in 1996, he had chaired several of the meetings of Le Cercle.

Jonathan Aitken –Conservative MP, Banker, writer and Arms dealer. Received an 18-month jail sentence in 1999 for lobbying for GEC, Marconi and VSEL, in order to sell millions worth of weapons to Saudi-Arabia. As director of BMARC he had been happily exporting arms to to Middle Eastern countries including Iraq. CEO of TV-Am and his banking and investment company Aitken Hume Plc and was a member of the Queen’s Privy Council; Minister of State for Defence under in 1992; Served as Chairman of Le Cercle during this period, as confirmed by MP Alan Clark. [9] Protégé of Lord Julian Amery.

Norman Lamont – Conservative MP (with Neo-Conservative connections to the United States) and Member of the Queen’s Privy Council. Lamont had an 11 year stint under N.M. Rothschild & Sons and became director of Rothschild Asset Management. Various ministerial posts under Thatcher and his most public as Chancellor of the Exchequer under John Major. Numerous domestic and international roles in commerce and finance including Chairman of the G7 group in 1992, negotiator at Maastricht; Advisor to Monsanto. Current Chairman of Euro-Sceptic think-tank Bruges Grp and said to be current Chairman of Le Cercle.

2011 saw his involvement in obstructing the Carroll Foundation Trust and parallel Carroll Maryland Trust billion dollars offshore tax evasion fraud scandal now encircling 10 Downing Street and the Conservative Party. It is “one of the biggest tax fraud scandals in living memory” and the ‘obstruction and co-ordinated cover-up’ is due to FBI Scotland Yard prosecution files naming high value suspects which extend deep into top-level banking and corporate echelons. Still under investigation during the coalition government of David Cameron and Nick Clegg Lord Lamont is one of many whose present pedestal remains in question. A total black-out on reporting in mainstream newspapers has been in effect since 2012. [10]

Prince Turki al Faisal – father was King Faisal, a major force behind the Arab oil embargo against the United States in 1973; nephew of the late King Fahd al-Saud, head of the House of Saud; Faisal studied at Princeton, Cambridge, and Georgetown Universities; Chairman King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies. Co-Founder King Faisal Foundation; CFR attendee; DAVOS attendee; headed Saudi foreign intelligence services from 1977 to September 1, 2001; supported the Afghan resistance against the Soviet invasion; Saudi Ambassador to Great Britain; named in a lawsuit from relatives of several hundred September 11 victims due to Saudi / bin Laden links to 9/11; friend of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles and the Bush family.

Michael Howard – Lawyer, Chairman of the Bow Grp 1970; Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Trade and Industry in 1985; responsibility for regulating the financial dealings of the City of London; one of the architects and supporters of the council or poll tax under Thatcher; various high-level government posts in the Thatcher government; tough reputation on the causes of crime. As Home Secretary his reputation was tarnished: “When he … released high-level drug dealer John Haase from prison just 10 months into an 18-year sentence, along with his associate Paul Bennett. Haase’s criminal career began with armed robberies in the 1970s. He moved on when he realised there was much more money to be made in heroin. He took control of the British end of the southern route for heroin smugglers, which runs from Afghanistan to Britain via Turkey and the Balkans. A member of Haase’s gang, Simon Bakerman, imprisoned for running an amphetamine factory, is Michael Howard’s cousin.” Junior minister at the time, Anne Widdicombe’s remark immortalized Howard’s persona when she remarked that “there is something of the night about him.”

Konrad Adenauer – a CIA asset and architect of West Germany’s economic recovery; Lord mayor of Cologne 1917. Lawyer, Pan Europa Union follower; hard-line anti-communist and associated with many known former Nazis including General Reinhard Gehlen; associate and signatory of the Treaty of Rome; received the Magistral Grand Cross personally from SMOM (The Sovereign Military Order of Malta) Franz-Josef Bach his Personal assistant was a German Ambassador to Iran and consultant and lobbyist for corporations including Siemens, Nippon Electric and Northrop-Grumman. He died in 2001.

The promotion of Franz Josef Strauss in terms of office and image inside and outside of Germany was also part of the le Cercle agenda as evidenced in the above published sources. Any accusations and criticism of Strauss was countered by denouncing the detractors as communist agitators. Strauss was a Le Cercle faithful and his friends rallied to his cause. A hard-right Roman Catholic Christian of the Social Union of Bavaria (CSU), he was buffered and protected throughout his life and career amid countless family scandals.

Reijden’s research places the following members as chairman/ President since the 1950s to the present day:

Chairman/President /Term

  • Antoine Pinay 1950s – 1970s
  • Jean Violet 1970s – 1980
  • Brian Crozier 1980 – 1985
  • Julian Amery 1985 – 1990s
  • Jonathan Aitken 1990s – 1996
  • Lord N. Lamont 1996 – today [11]

The achievements of Le Cercle have been better understood from the 1975 leaking of documents from the Institute for the Study of Conflict (ISC) and further revelations from German intelligence officer Hans Langemann, a former head of Bavarian State Security in the 1970s and early 1980s. With the help of a colleague who attended Le Cercle meetings full briefings were passed on to Langemann in exchange for intelligence information of his own. He sold the information to Kronket Magazine which eventually ended up in Der Spiegel in the early 1980s.

From this information we can see that le Cercle influence is not insubstantial. Through its virulent anti-communist paranoia it played a key role in bringing Margaret Thatcher to power with several le Cercle members hovering in her sphere, including Brian Crozier whose covert advisory committee, “Shield” played a crucial role:

The initial idea for Shield came from MI6 agent Sir Stephen Haskings, a friend of Crozier who had formerly been a SAS soldier and SOE officer. Crozier put together Thatcher’s election campaign by adopting Jean Violet’s Psychological Action program, a technique to find quick, short answers to three basic questions: What do people want? What do they fear? And what do they feel strongly about? Shield also completely convinced Thatcher about the severe threat of domestic communist subversion. After Crozier and Haskings handed her their paper ‘The diabolical nature of the Communist conspiracy’, Thatcher’s reaction was, “I’ve read every word and I’m shattered. What should we do?’” [12]

The Round Table’s presence in South Africa also had many Le Cercle members by virtue of the inevitable crossovers the evolution of the two groups engendered. Though both differed substantially on ideology there were also many similarities rooted in aristocracy and British Empire traditions. Rhodesia and South Africa was largely owned and manipulated by these two powerful groups. Cecil Rhodes, a Rothschild / Round Table agent and Julian Amery a Le Cercle Chairman and highly influential 1001 Club member were two of a kind and rooted in British fascism and post-war imperialism.

Finally, several members of Le Cercle played a prominent role in the Afghan war. The alleged Polish Venetian Nobility descendent Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security advisor to Carter, was the architect of the Mujahideen guerrilla network. With assistance from another Le Cercle member and Knight of Malta, CIA director William Casey, he helped to push the Soviets out of the country leading to its eventual collapse.

The Z Factor II: Sexpionage

“If it is necessary to use a married woman, it would be best [for] her husband to divorce her. … After the [sex] act, he would be entitled to bring her back,” … “Naturally, a job of that sort could be given to a woman who in any event is licentious in her ways.”

– Rabbi Ari Shvat, on ‘Illicit sex for the sake of national security’ published by the Tzomet Institute: Israeli rabbi: Honey-pot sex is kosher for female Mossad agents


Back in the world of the British bobby it seems policing has changed out of all recognition. Police have used sexpionage as a tool in undercover operations for many years targeting anarchist, left-wing and environmental groups in order to gather intelligence, all sanctioned by senior commanders, despite protestations to the contrary. [1]If blackmail is a primary tool of intelligence agencies with many of our politicians and officials as paedophiles and sexual predators, then it is only logical that such people are purposely being groomed for placements within the military and political Establishment, with or without their knowledge. A review of the MOSSAD’s operations in recent years suggests that they are way ahead of the game regarding such tactics.

Israel welcomed into their clandestine operations a number of former Eastern bloc intelligence agents during and after the Cold War, which led to the use of both female and male sex agents or “Ravens” and “swallows.” Successful intelligence ploys used by the former KGB and East German Stasi have mutated into a potent form of “sexpionage” or the use of sex by foreign spies to obtain information or concessions from government. Even Palestinian collaborators in occupied territories have been recruited by Israeli security forces by using the same seduction tactics which have proved essential in infiltrating Palestinian groups and setting up targets for arrests and assassinations [2]

The MOSSAD keeps thousands of “dossiers” on many US politicians which become targets for information gathering including blackmail opportunities. This means that extensive profiling takes place so that the prospective patsy can be comprehensively trapped. That means getting to know his sexual preferences and character traits.

The James McGreevey and Golan Cipel affair is a case in point, which involved a high level governor with Homeland Security clearance posting and an unorthodox employee. On closer inspection some of the details are just a little too convenient and rather too pat to be mere chance. This was not a “gay sex scandal” but an Israeli intelligence operation which had to be hastily aborted. It was to be turned into a sexual scandal to draw interest away from the nature of the operation: sex for secrets. It seems Mr. Cipel was a junior MOSSAD case officer, originally posted to New York under official cover. McGreevey was lured into the relationship that was intended to breach New Jersey’s so called homeland defences.

Foreign intelligence expert Andy Martin from Out2.com newspaper syndicate offered the following analysis:

‘Since 9/11 there has been barely suppressed anger at the fact Israeli intelligence knew about the hijackers and said nothing. Israelis have found themselves under suspicion and restricted by some intelligence channels. The state homeland security position was seen as a back door way of spying on anti-terror preparations in the New York-New Jersey area, and possibly nationally.’

‘The media have focused on the wrong blackmail scheme. This was not a sexual blackmail situation, although threats and demands have been made.’

‘Gay sex’ is being used to conceal the real nature of the betrayal. This was a blackmail scheme intended to place Golan Cipel in a position of intense interest to Israeli intelligence.’

‘I am asking the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey to refocus his investigation into a breach-of-security investigation instead of a sex scandal. ‘Based on my extensive experience with foreign intelligence agencies, I think you will see Mr. Cipel, who is now exposed by his non-official cover, on a plane back to Israel very soon.’ .[3]

And Indeed he was.

A married man concealing his homosexuality and very likely having the odd extramarital affair which MOSSAD would have been monitoring was enough to mark McGreevey out for a MOSSAD operation. His post as Governor of New Jersey meant that he was privy to some very interesting Homeland Security strategies.

In March 2000, McGreevey contacted Golan Cipel while in Rishon Letzion, home of the first Zionist settlement, Israel’s fourth-largest city, where the young Israeli worked for the Mayor Meir Nitzan. It was back in 1995 while Cipel was working at the public information office at the Israeli consulate in New York that he began working for McGreevey when he was mayor of Woodbridge. Cipel was studying communications at the New York Institute of Technology, though he received a Fine Arts degree. Art, spying and Israel pop up yet again. (We may remember the story broken by Carl Cameron for Fox News which was later hastily buried bringing to light the existence of an Israeli spy ring which consisted of over 180 cases of young agents posing as art students).[4]

Israeli embassies have been centres of MOSSAD operatives for decades along with a widely held belief that Israeli espionage training operations are primarily carried out through the telecommunications industry within the US. This serves as another warning sign that Cipel was most likely a “Raven.” The fact that he was a former Israeli Naval Officer only confirms the suspicion.

On Jan. 24, 2002, with great fanfare, Mr. McGreevey announced the creation of an office of counterterrorism and appointed Kathryn Flicker, a respected assistant attorney general, to the post. But Cipel was already there and was appointed his lead advisor for homeland security the following month. When the scandal broke he fanned the fire still further by assigning him to a job as “counselor to the governor.” Obviously the Israeli was doing his job very well, as he was clearly enamoured of Cipel.

>Mexican journalist Ernesto Cienfuegos had this to say about the case:

During the period between meeting James McGreevey and the revelation of the scandal, Golan Cipel moved from assignment to assignment with the ease that only an Israeli sexpionage operative could have. According to official documents, Cipel worked for the Israeli Parliament, the Israeli Embassy in New York, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and ultimately as Chief of Homeland Security for the US State of New Jersey at a salary of $110,000 per year, even though he was an Israeli illegal alien.

The allegations by Cipel of ‘sexual harassment’ by Governor McGreevey are only a ruse to cover up the real purpose of the operation. The allegation by Cipel that he was sexually assaulted by the governor “twenty times” is preposterous and only the dumbest Americans will believe it. In fact, Golan Cipel allowed the governor to buy him an apartment a mere few blocks from the condominium where McGreevey lived with his so called wife. The scandal involves much more than just the outing of a ‘queer governor’! [5]

Gary Condit, as a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence was privy to high level classified documents that Israel would have been happy to get their hands on. Chandra Levy, a 24 year old government intern, a sleeper agent and “swallow” was activated for this purpose and a meeting set up. Married Condit soon came under Levy’s spell and an affair ensued. However, it seems US intelligence was tipped off and Levy was murdered, her remains being discovered more than a year later. No one has been charged for the murder, nor are they likely to be.

Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades were no less prominent than J.F. Kennedy or indeed, most members of Congress, through successive administrations. What was more unusual was that it represented one of the MOSSAD’s most successful operations leading to Clinton’s impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives and acquittal by the Senate. They did it through the “swallow” Monica Lewinsky.

There are conflicting reports as to the reasons why such an operation was undertaken. One suggestion is Lewinsky’s primary mission was to blackmail Clinton in order that he released the Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. Another believes that the MOSSAD were bugging the Watergate apartment telephone of their agent Lewinsky who had fostered the affair with Clinton as ordered. They were then able to obtain material used to blackmail the Clinton administration into shutting down a probe of widespread Israeli espionage in Washington.

Investigative journalist Kevin Dowling reported that his sources in Tel Aviv told him that “full transcripts of more than 30 sexually explicit conversations between Clinton and Lewinsky are held by the Israeli foreign intelligence service, the MOSSAD.” By “coincidence” the Likud Prime Minister and ardent Zionist Benjamin Netanyahu met President Clinton at the White House while the scandal was in full swing. [6]

As a backdrop to Clinton’s entrapment we had:

“… the assassination of President Clinton’s partner in the Middle East peace process, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, on Nov. 4, 1995, which open[ed] the path for Netanyahu becoming Prime Minister in May 1996; and Netanyahu’s visit to Washington in mid-January 1998 – just as the Lewinsky affair was breaking in the U.S. news media. On this visit, Netanyahu publicly insulted the President by meeting with Bill Clinton’s worst enemies, televangelists Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.” [7]

However, in a piece from Jeffrey Steinberg of Executive Intelligence Review, he draws our attention to the interception of a phone conversation in January 1997 between an Israeli official at the embassy in Washington, and Danny Yatom, the head of the MOSSAD, Israel’s foreign intelligence service. Permission was sought from the head: ‘… to Mega’ in order to a copy of a confidential letter that had been sent by then-U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher to Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, concerning U.S. assurances about a recently negotiated agreement for an Israeli military withdrawal from the Hebron area in the West Bank. Yatom, according to the NSA intercept, rejected the request, admonishing his agent, ‘This is not something we use Mega for.’ ” [8]

Why it was so shocking that another spy-ring within the Clinton Administration might be operating when Israeli-Jewish influence had been saturating the social, cultural and political landscape for several decades remains a mystery. One possibility is that blackmailing the Clinton Administration with the taped conversations between the President and Monica Lewinsky was a way to force Washington to abandon the Mega hunt and get Clinton back in Israel’s court.

The telecommunications network in the United States had already been subverted by Israeli agents for some years and which, during the early Clinton era was extended right up to the White House itself. The outside contractor involved in the modernizing of the administration communications systems was (surprise, surprise) an Israeli company Amdocs which had “…unfettered access to White House telephone lines and other super-sensitive communications equipment. However, the nature of the request from the Mossad man in Washington to Yatom—to obtain a confidential State Department document—rules out the possibility that Mega was an electronic eavesdropping source.” [9]

Consequently, the hunt for the Israeli “Mega” mole began in earnest with two candidates flagged as probable.

Martin Indyk is a British-born Australian citizen, who held a post in Australia’s top Mideast security official in the late 1970s, as deputy director of current Mideast intelligence at the Australian Office of National Assessments. He was also a media consultant to Israel’s Likud Prime Ministers, Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir. In 1993 his circuitous path found him in the Clinton Administration’s National Security Council (NSC) staff as Senior Director for Near East and South Asian Affairs.

Next were Likud and Neo-Conservative Leon Fuerth and none other than Vice-President Al Gore’s National Security Adviser. Suspicions were raised by 1998 when it was reported that he had been suspected of: “…passing sensitive U.S. policy information to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Likud), a passionate, personal enemy of President Clinton, who was suspected of activating the Mega spy operation.” According to Steinberg, while blackmail was certainly a possibility: “Mega was not a deep mole inside the White House. Mega was a far more visible, far more powerful entity, known among its several dozen members as ‘the Mega Group.’” [10]

The Mega Group was made up of 20 top level banking and corporate CEOs, and directors worth billions of dollars who ostensibly wished to create a Jewish philanthropic enterprise. Hedge-fund manager Michael Steinhardt Edgar Bronfman, then chairman of the World Jewish Congress; Charles Bronfman, Edgar’s brother and a top executive of the family’s flagship Seagrams Corp.; Laurence Tisch, chairman of Loews Corp.; Leslie Wexler of Limited, Inc.; Leonard Abramson, the founder of U.S. Healthcare; bagel magnate Max Lender; Charles Schusterman, chairman of Samson Investment Co; Harvey Meyerhoff, real estate magnate and Max Fisher, the Detroit oil magnate and Republican Party donator.

In fact, the Mega Group’s raison d’être was to bolster the power of the Israeli lobby and channel “charitable funds” for influencing policy toward Israel at the behest of the then Likud government of the late Ariel Sharon. Three of the leading Mega Group members, Leonard Abramson, Edgar Bronfman, and Michael Steinhardt had been reported as founding a new think tank named Emet (Hebrew for “truth”) in order “…to generate long-term strategies for presenting Israel in a favorable light.” The ADL’s then director Abe Foxman was an enthusiastic supporter as were other far right Zionist interests who were intent on taking a hard-line approach to the peace process.

So, rather than a single “mole” in the government, this is a Zionist fifth column spread across many US departments fully embedded in the National Security State infrastructure. There no sign that it has been removed.

As mentioned previously, Israeli embassies have been at the forefront MOSSAD’s international operations. Asia pacific has been in the news recently where agents have been popping up on various occasions with yet another spy theory circulated in 2006 involving an expulsion of a diplomat in Canberra, Australia.

Israeli consul Amir Lati, 2nd Secretary at the Israeli Embassy in Canberra was secretly expelled after the Howard Government threatened to declare him persona non grata. He was said to be a MOSSAD operator and seeking military and technology secrets, passed to Australia by the US. Suggestions there were connections to the detention and subsequent brief imprisonment in New Zealand of two MOSSAD agents Uriel Zoshe Kelman and Eli Cara were consistently denied. However, New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark had no hesitation in imposing diplomatic sanctions on Israel from her conviction that the men were spies. After being sentenced to six months in jail the men were out in three and on a plane back to their homeland.

Due to the heightened vigilance from the arrest of these spies, the Australian Secret Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) was ready for Mr Lati. His reputation as a sexual predator (as well as a sexpionage agent) was well known, having most recently seduced a senior official at the Australian Defence Department who had access to classified material. His expulsion revealed further details in February that Lati had a close friendship with the daughter of Attorney-General Philip Ruddock who was responsible for the ASIO. Minister Alexander Downer and Mr. Ruddock strongly denied there was a link, though they would not elaborate on the reason.

Ms. Ruddock may have been targeted by Lati whom he met while they were studying in Beijing over six years before. It may well be that their meeting may have been innocent enough at that stage but once Lati’s assignment had been activated, it is likely that links were re-established due to the information possibilities Ruddock’s daughter presented. Such coincidences are highly unlikely in the fields of counter-intelligence and sexpionage.

Amir Lati’s replacement was Ari Scher, a known paedophile, who was forced to flee from Brazil and return to his native to Israel after a rather lacklustre investigation into his alleged involvement in a child pornography ring. Brazilian authorities declared him a fugitive after searching his apartment and finding technology used to manufacture pornographic material, some of which involved underage girls. More importantly, two juveniles reported to police that they were forced by Scher to have sexual intercourse with various Israeli and other foreign “guests and tourists.” Brazilian authorities said “he had left the country via ‘legal diplomatic channels.’” It appears that it was indeed a rather panic-stricken departure.

When a 17 year-old girl accused 40-year-old Hebrew teacher Georges Schteinberg of using her as a model in pornographic pictures and of distributing them on the Internet, the investigation culminated in a search of Scher’s apartment where: “ … Photographs of nude minors posed on a car with diplomatic plates were discovered in a search of Schteinberg’s residence earlier in the week, in addition to massive quantities of pornographic material. Police then traced the car in the pictures back to Scher. The search of Scher’s apartment confirmed that some of the photographs found at Schteinberg’s residence had been taken in the vice-consul’s penthouse.” [11]

In other words, Scher was tipped off by the Israeli consulate headed by Eitan Surkis and spirited away before the Brazilian police could capture him. They had even staked out the Israeli embassy in Rio de Janerio only to be told he “…had been en route to Israel for the past two days.” [12]

According to Agent Icaro Silva of the Brazilian Police Commission in Copacabana, nine complete pornographic web sites were found on the hard drive of Schteinberg’s computer, all in Hebrew, the language that Schteinberg taught. A retired professor by the name of Ablio Nogueira de Faria, age 78, who was in jail for producing child pornography was also found to have connections to Scher. Essentially, vice consul Scher in concert with Georges Schteinberg were running an Internet service that brought Israeli tourists to Brazil to have sex with the children. Later, it was found that his computer had disappeared. (Schteinberg has since been charged with sexual exploitation of minors).

Sex tourism and paedophilia for embassy staff seems to be an extracurricular activity that is far from uncommon. Such “hobbies” did not seem to deter the Israel government from putting forward Ari Scher as a possible replacement which, given his history, is either a very careless oversight or a purposeful placement to move an operative onto pastures new. Brazil, having formerly asked Scher to be extradited is still waiting for an answer and not likely to receive one anytime soon. Israel’s Civil Service Commission banned him from foreign diplomatic missions for five years but did not believe he acted criminally, which should say something about the agenda of Israeli institutions.

Some reports cite sexpionage as so important to Israeli intelligence that an office located in Washington D.C and set up as a post 9/11 anti-terrorism Institute, is in fact a front for the purpose of continuing such operations. The office can be found at 3811 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 720 Arlington, VA 22203. The Chief of the office is none other than the former Director of the Israeli MOSSAD, Shabtai Shavit.

Notes

[1] ‘Sex ‘part of undercover policing’’ UKPA January 24, 2011: “Police used sex as a tool during undercover operations – and tactical “promiscuity”, sanctioned by senior commanders, was viewed as “part of the job”, a former agent revealed. The officer, who worked in a secretive unit of the Metropolitan Police for four years, said sexual relationships with activists were common among those gathering intelligence from anarchist, left-wing and environmental groups. His claims, made to The Observer, contradict comments made last week by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) which insisted the practise was forbidden.
But the former officer, once a member the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), a covert unit formed to prevent violent disorder on the streets of London, said sex helped to maintain cover. The man, who was not named, admitted to sleeping with at least two of his female targets for information.
“Everybody knew it was a very promiscuous lifestyle,” he told the paper. “You cannot be promiscuous in those groups. Otherwise you’ll stand out straight away.”
Meanwhile, there was also no set of instructions dictating whether officers could or could not have sex with activists, he claimed.
“Among fellow undercover officers, there is not really any kudos in the fact that you are shagging other people while deployed,” he added.
“Basically it’s just regarded as part of the job. It’d be highly unlikely that you were not (having sex). When you are using the tool of sex to maintain your cover or maybe to glean more intelligence – because they certainly talk a lot more, pillow talk – you would be ready to move on if you felt an attachment growing.”
However, the officer, who infiltrated anti-racist groups between 1993 and 1997, said falling in love could jeopardise an investigation and was regarded as unprofessional. His revelations follow the controversy surrounding former Met officer Pc Mark Kennedy who monitored the actions of protesters across Europe under the guise of a long-haired, drop-out climber called Mark Stone.”
