THE HOUR OF THE TIME
Tape No. 476: „ADL #6“
Friday, November 4, 1994
This broadcast was taken in whole or in part from investigations conducted by the CAJI News Service, and the Intelligence Service, and from reports published by The Executive Intelligence Review entitled „The Ugly Truth About The ADL“, and „Dope Inc.“.
Since the ADL has declared war on the patriots of this country,
including patriotic Jewish people–all people in fact who are patriots,
who understand that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the only
things that protect us from despotism, from the same kinds of things
that happened to the Jews, to the gypsies, to the Poles, to the blacks,
to the Catholics in Germany during World War II.
And believe me, folks, the ADL is not Jews and it is not a
representation of the Jewish people. They serve their British masters
only. They manipulate the Jews through lies and deception; through that
old bugaboo: anti-semitism; by painting swastikas on walls; and by
taking out parade permits for the Nazi Party.
Do you hear what I’m saying?
I’m angry. Patriotic Americans in this country of all races, religions,
and creeds have been labeled as right-wing, fanatic terrorists,
threatening to overthrow the United States government. And it is a
lie. The label has come from the ADL. We have been called racists and
anti-semitic, and it is a lie.
Before I go any further, I want to thank all of the Jewish patriots in
this country who have called me and FAXed me with their support in this
effort, and their denouncement of the ADL. And since the ADL is so
powerful, I can’t tell you who these people are because I don’t want
them to get a visit in the middle of the night. For the ADL is also a
pack of goons and terrorists who have been known to perpetrate violence
on several occasions.
Tonight, you’re going to hear the truth for the first time in your life
about the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. And you’re going to
hear it Monday, and Tuesday, and Wednesday, and Thursday, and Friday of
next week. And if necessary on and on, until you understand just
exactly who these people are.
What is the ADL?
„The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith proclaims itself to be a
non-profit corporation, designed to eliminate defamation of Jews and
other religious and ethnic groups, to advance proper understanding among
all peoples, and to preserve and translate into greater effectiveness
the principles of freedom, equality, and democracy.“
This statement is taken directly from the bylaws of the ADL of B’nai
B’rith, as amended by the National Commission, June 1982. And nothing,
dear listeners, could be further from the truth.
In repeated, flagrant violation of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal
Revenue Service Codes, the ADL operates as a tax-exempt public interest
corporation, while in reality, ladies and gentlemen, it engages in a
wide range of activities that are inherently criminal in nature,
including interference in the judicial and law enforcement process;
support for domestic and international terrorist organizations;
instigation of hate crimes; espionage; support for suspected
international narcotics traffickers; unregistered political activities;
and covert activities on behalf of both hostile foreign governments and
United States government, agencies generally linked to the International
It is a matter of historical record that before, during, and immediately
after World War II, the Anti-Defamation League functioned as a covert
action arm of the British Special Operations Executive under its North
American Chief, Sir William Stephenson <sp?>, in close liaison with the
Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Division V–the Division that I have
named as being implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Through its 151-member National Commission and its paid staff
maintaining regional offices in 31 cities in the United States, and a
number of locations in Europe, the Middle East, Ibarow <sp?> America,
and the Soviet Union–in fact, a Moscow office is in the process of
being opened at the invitation of President Mikhail Gorbachev at the
time this report was written–the ADL operates as a covert strike force,
whose corrupting influence extends into the pores of the financial
community, the legal establishment, the media, and the United States
government, at the federal, state, and local level.
And everything that I am stating tonight, and will state in the
following nights, have been proven, can be proven, and is a matter of
fact. And most of it is in the public record.
Above all else, ladies and gentlemen, the ADL is a public relations
front for that branch of American organized crime founded by Meyer
Lansky during the early decades of this century, under the patronage and
sponsorship of leading Anglo-American financial interests.
Anti-Defamation League officials, for this reason, were reportedly
deeply dismayed when a man by the name of Lyndon LaRouche dubbed the ADL
„the American drug lobby“.
More recently, the ADL has moved to deepen its ties to the Soviet
foreign intelligence services operating in the west, and in the newly
liberated nations of central Europe.
The ADL, folks, according to its bylaws, is run by a National Commission
which currently consists of 151 members. It is chaired by a National
Chairman, currently Abe Foxman. The National Commission formally meets
once each year.
According to Article 7 of the bylaws in the interval between the
National Commission annual meetings, the ADL’s National Executive
Committee acts for it.
The NEC is composed of:
a Senior Rabbi at Temple Immanuel in New York City;
and Vice Chairman;
the elected officers of the National Committee:
Executive Vice President; and
Honorary Past Presidents of B’nai B’rith;
their counterparts of B’nai B’rith Women;
the appointed Chairmen of all of the ADL Standing Committees; and
the President of the ADL Foundation;
fifteen additional members of the National Committee who are elected by
The ADL is formally affiliated with B’nai B’rith, which is the Jewish
arm of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
However, this link is principally maintained through the B’nai B’rith’s
representation on ADL’s National Commission.
Unlike its parent organization the B’nai B’rith, the ADL is not a
membership organization. In other words, you cannot join the ADL, as
many Jewish people erroneously believe. You cannot join the ADL.
Membership is by nomination or invitation only. In this sense, the ADL
bears a greater likeness to the secret lodges of Freemasonry than its
B’nai B’rith parent organization, which was originally conceived in the
mid-nineteenth century as a Jewish branch of British Freemasonry.
Remember, British Intelligence and the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry was
behind the Civil War. You see, it was all right for the states to
secede from the Union. But it was not OK to fire upon a United States
The current President of B’nai B’rith is Seymour D. Reich <sp?>, a
long-standing activist and officer of the ADL prior to his election to
head B’nai B’rith.
And that’s not correct, folks. I’m reading from a report. It is now
Of the current 151 active National Commission members, a smaller core
group directs the overall activities of the ADL’s staff through
participation in Standing Committees of the National Committee.
The Standing Committees are organized in precise parallel to the ADL’s
staff divisions and departments, thus permitting the maximum flow of
marching orders and other inputs from the National Commission into the
day-to-day activities of the League’s paid employees. In this sense,
Edgar Bronfman, and other leading National Commissioners, run the ADL.
Standing Committee Chairmen of the ADL who, together with their
committee members, are appointed by the National Chairman, include:
Howard P. Berkowitz <sp?>, Planning;
Donald R. Mintz, Civil Rights;
Michael Knockman <sp?>, Community Services;
Sherwin Newer <sp?>, Budget;
Melvin I. Salberg, Communications;
Michael E. Schultz, Administration;
Joel Spraerigen <sp?> and Lucille Kantor, International Affairs;
David H. Strassler <sp?>, Intergroup Relations;
Robert G. Sugarman, Leadership; and
William Vefren <sp?>, Development.
These committees, ladies and gentlemen, correspond to the divisions of
the ADL’s full-time staff. And the divisions include the following:
Administration: concerned with the ADL’s internal affairs, it was
directed by Philip Seamus <sp?>, who had previously been Comptroller for
the American Jewish Committee.
Civil Rights: is a division that works through departments on
Fact-Finding, Research, and Evaluation.
Legal Affairs: a Washington, D.C. office where a task force on Nazi war
criminals is based, and four regional area coordinators.
Community Service: this division directs the 31 regional offices
throughout the United States, whose directors work closely with regional
boards appointed by the National Committee.
Communications: handles public relations and the production of
material. Until January 1990, its director was Lynn Ianniello.
Development: it oversees the fund-raising activities of the ADL Appeal.
Intergroup Relations: is made up of departments on Education, Higher
Education, Campus Affairs, Interfaith Affairs, Television, Radio, and
Film Publications and an International Center for Holocaust Studies.
International Affairs: compromises departments in the United States
concerned with European, Latin American, and Middle Eastern affairs–
and yes, I meant „compromises“–
and is in charge of ADL’s overseas operations, including the offices in
Paris, Rome, and Jerusalem.
Leadership: recruits potential future leaders and coordinates an ADL
national leadership conference.
The ADL, ladies and gentlemen, has over 300 people who hold leadership
or honorary leadership positions. Among this list are a number of
Honorary Vice Chairmen who are closely linked to the ADL, but who, for
various reasons, including government service, cannot serve as active
This group includes:
Rudy Bauschwitz <sp?>, Republican, Minnesota; and
Howard Metzenbaum, Democrat, Ohio;
former Carter administration Secretary of Commerce: Philip Klutznick;
former Reagan Administration Arms Control negotiator: Max Kampelman;
former Senator: Abraham Rubikoff <sp?>, Democrat, Connecticut; and
Representative: Sidney Yates, Democrat, Illinois.
World Jewish Congress President, Edgar Bronfman, is also an Honorary
Vice Chairman, along with two other major crime figures from the old
Meyer Lansky orbit:
Leonard Abess <sp?>; and
Theodore Silbert <sp?>.
With the exception of members of Congress, all of those that I just read
off are Honorary Vice Chairmen, and were at one time active National
Among the active corps of ADL operatives are:
Burton S. Levinson <sp?>:
ADL National Chairman since 1987. And his work with ADL dates back to
1950 when, as a student at Los Angeles City College, he infiltrated a
group affiliated with Gerald L. K. Smith. Now, he is a senior partner
in the Beverly Hills-based law firm of Levinson and Liebermann.
Abraham H. Foxman:
who is now the head, the ADL National Director since 1987. He has
worked on the staff of the ADL since 1965. He was born in Baronowicz
<sp?>, Poland in 1940. Foxman is one of the most mysterious figures in
the ADL leadership. United States intelligence sources, and even some
top-ranking ADL members, reportedly suspect Foxman may be a Soviet
illegal, a long-term penetration agent, operating without any links to
the official Soviet diplomatic corps.
Arnold Forster <sp?>:
was Associate Director of the ADL under Ben Epstein since 1946, and is
now a member of the National Committee and ADL General Counsel. He has
been of counsel with the New York law firm of Shay and Gould <sp?>, a
firm intimately tied to the late-mob lawyer, Roy Cohn.
Kenneth J. Bailken <sp?>:
this former ADL National Chairman from 1982 to 1986 is today an Honorary
Chairman, a National Committee member, as well as President of the ADL
Theodore H. Silbert:
an Honorary Vice Chairman. He works with Edgar Bronfman and the
lucrative Greater New York Appeal for the ADL. Silbert is Chairman of
the Sterling National Bank.
Burton M. Joseph:
ADL National Chairman from 1976 to 1978, is today an Honorary Chairman.
His family runs the Minnesota-based agricultural products firm, I. S.
Joseph. After World War II, Joseph teamed up politically with liberal
Democrat Hubert H. Humphrey, through whom he became friends of Max M.
Kampelman, now ADL Honorary Vice Chairman, and ADL top funder, Dwayne
Andreas. Together, they form the Indianapolis ADL mafia.
ADL Honorary National Chairman and head of its Greater New York Appeal.
since 1966, he is head of the Fact-Finding Department of the ADL’s Civil
Meyer Eisenberg <sp?>:
ADL Vice Chairman, and former head of the National Commission’s Civil
Rights Committee, with oversight over the Fact-Finding and Legal
Departments. He served from 1959 to 1970 as an attorney with the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission, attaining the position of
Deputy General Counsel of the SEC before his retirement from
government. In private law practice with a string of Washington, D.C.
area law firms, Eisenberg remains one of the nation’s experts on
It was no public relations gaff when in 1985 the Anti-Defamation League
gave its „Torch of Liberty Award“ to gangster Morris Delitz <sp?>,
founder of the notorious Purple Gang and long-time crime partner of the
late-mobster, Meyer Lansky.
The present leadership of the ADL is dominated by figures with long
standing ties to organized crime, particularly to the international drug
money laundering apparatus. Foremost among these contaminated ADL
officials is Kenneth Bailken, the ex-National Chairman who is still an
Honorary National Chairman, and a director of the ADL Foundation.
While with the New York law firm of Wilkie, Farr, and Gallagher <sp?>
throughout the 1970s, Bailken masterminded Robert Vesco’s looting of
Investors Overseas Service (IOS) of more than $60 million.
Vesco, the fugitive financier, now living in Havana, Cuba, was an early
partner of Medellin Cartel dope smuggler, Carlos Ledder Rivas <sp?>,
helping Ledder to set up his marijuana and cocaine smuggling routes
through the Bahamas.
On April 17th, 1989, Robert Vesco was again indicted by a federal grand
jury in Jacksonville, Florida which charged him with involvement in a
Medellin cartel cocaine smuggling conspiracy from 1974 to 1989.
In January 1980, a jury in the U.S. Southern District of New York,
ordered Wilkie, Farr and Gallagher to pay $35 million to victims of the
IOS looting, and found that Bailken had been instrumental in structuring
the money laundering and theft scheme at every level.
Law enforcement officials believe that IOS was one of the early conduits
for billions of dollars in drug profits, and was a cash repository used
by Meyer Lansky.
Recently, Bailken left Wilkie, Farr to join the country’s largest
firm–Scadden Arps <sp?>. In much the same way that Wilkie, Farr
pioneered the elaborate off-shore money laundering schemes that today
constitute the blood stream of the international drug trade, Scadden
Arps pioneered the junk bond and leveraged buy-out schemes through which
billions of dollars in dubious off-shore money had been repatriated
through hostile corporate take-overs and asset-stripping of America’s
Two of Scadden Arps‘ most notorious clients are Drexel Burnham’s Michael
Milken and Ivan Boesky, both of whom, not coincidentally, have been ADL
Another ADL National Chairman, Burton Joseph, played a pivotal role in
the Robert Vesco take-over and looting of IOS by putting Vesco into
contact with his protege, financier Meschulem Rickless <sp?> of the
Rapid American Corporation.
Rickless, according to court records, purchased a controlling block of
IOS stock as a surrogate for Vesco. Rickless was later linked to
Bailken, Edgar Bronfman, Henry Kissinger, and other Anti-Defamation
League figures in a real estate scandal involving the illegal purchase
of large tracts in the Israeli occupied territories, and Christian and
Muslim sections of Jerusalem.
During Bailken’s tenure at Wilkie Farr, the firm also handled pro bono
legal work for the Anti-Defamation League, and represented major
Anti-Defamation League donor and suspected crime figure, Edmond Safra.
Bailken represented Safra in the Syrian banker’s take-over of American
Express, a transaction that ended years later in a fiasco with American
Express officials accusing Safra of money laundering.
On January 3rd, 1989, officials of the United States Customs Service and
the United States Drug Enforcement Administration in Bern, Switzerland,
identified Edmond Safra as a major figure in an international drug money
laundering scheme involving the Shikarki <sp?> Trading Company. The
government reports identified Safra as a lifetime friend and business
associate of Muhammad Shikarki; and identified numbered accounts at
Safra’s New York City Republic National Bank as pass-through accounts
for drug profits from Syrian, Lebanese, Bulgarian, and Colombian
Now, according to aids to Safra, he arranged that the ADL receive $1
million from money he won in a lawsuit in 1989.
There is one financial institution that is more closely linked to the
ADL than any other: Sterling National Bank of New York City.
On January 29th, 1982, Italian authorities filed civil suit against
Sterling National Bank and other U.S. financial institutions on behalf
of depositors in Banca Privata Italiana, charging that $27 million had
The Chairman of Sterling, both at the time of the alleged theft and
today, is Theodore H. Silbert, another Honorary Vice Chairman of the ADL
and the former head of the ADL Appeal, its major fund-raising arm. Law
enforcement sources have identified Sterling National as a mob front
since its founding in 1929 by Meyer Lansky–by Meyer Lansky. Associate
Frank Erickson <sp?>….
Do you understand what I’m saying, folks? These people are solidly and
completely linked to organized crime.
Meyer Lansky’s associate, Frank Erickson, founded Sterling National as a
mob front. Sterling National was also implicated in a tax evasion
scheme in the early 1980s through another ADL-linked bank director,
Arnold Burns, a Reagan-era U.S. Deputy Attorney General.
Burns‘ law firm, Burns and Summit <sp?>, apparently set up a string of
Caribbean tax shelters which shielded millions of dollars in taxable
income through non-existent R & D investments in Israel.
Former Reagan official, Ambassador to Italy, Maxwell Robb <sp?>, is
another long-standing Sterling National Director. Robb was a one-time
business partner of Meyer Lansky in the International Airport Hotel
Yet another mob-linked banker who sits on the ADL’s National Commission,
and is listed in the League’s most recent „Purpose and Program“ as an
Honorary Vice Chairman is Leonard Abess of the City National Bank of
Miami. in 1981, Abess brought Colombian cartel money launderer Alberto
Duke into the bank’s board, where he remained until he was jailed on
money laundering charges in 1986.
The following year, Donald Beazley <sp?> was named City National’s
Chairman. Beazley was the former director of the Nuegen Hand <sp?>
Bank, believed to have been a major laundering conduit for Southeast
Asian heroin proceeds, as well as black funds derived from the illicit
arms trafficking of Theodore G. Shackley <sp?>, and other former top
Central Intelligence Agency officials later implicated in the
And I wrote about the Nuegen Hand Bank in my book five years ago.
A listing of ADL financial contributors and award recipients over the
recent decades reads like a „Who’s Who“ of the Meyer Lansky
international crime syndicate. Long-time Lansky cronies such as Victor
Posner, Hollywood attorney, Sidney Korshak <sp?> and Mo Delitz all
appear as ADL patrons.
The same pattern holds true at the regional levels of the ADL. For
example, Phil Baskin, a Pittsburgh attorney and Democratic Party fixer,
known to be the chief operator of the ADL in western Pennsylvania, was
forced to resign as the senior partner in his law firm after being
implicated in an effort to deliver a major airport construction contract
to a top figure in the New York City Gambino family, Nicky Sands <sp?>.
Further south, Paul Lipkin <sp?>, the Chairman of the Virginia Regional
Board of the ADL, was for decades the personal attorney for Arthur
„Bootsie“ Goldstein, the biggest pornography distributor in Norfolk.
Goldstein was arrested 85 times and served three jail terms for crimes
including selling glue to minors and peddling sex paraphernalia.
No discussion of the ADL’s ties to organized crime and the drug
apparatus would be complete without reference to Edgar Bronfman, ADL
Honorary Vice Chairman and Chief of its New York Appeal.
Today, touted as a leading international business man, philanthropist,
and Chairman of the prestigious World Jewish Congress, Bronfman has been
unable to erase the taint left by the fact that his entire family
fortune, Seagrams Corporation, its majority share in E. I. DuPont,
DeNumois <sp?> Company, etc., derived from his father’s prohibition era
bootlegging activities. Known at the time as the Bronfman Gang, the
Canadian Bronfmans were the main illegal suppliers to America’s crime
syndicate known as Murder, Incorporated.
By no later than 1920, when Edgar’s father, Sam Bronfman, and Arnold
Rothstein, agent Jacob Katzenberg <sp?> were dispatched to Hong Kong to
arrange opium supplies, the bootlegging routes were also utilized for
the smuggling and retail distribution of illegal drugs.
To this day, elements of the Bronfman family remain tied to the gutter
levels of organized crime, while Edgar and his brother and cousins have
managed to wrap themselves in a somewhat ragged cloak of respectability.
Edgar’s nephew, Mitchell Bronfman, was named in a 1972 Montreal Crime
Commission report as an intimate of local crime boss, Willie O’Bront
<sp?>. Their relationship extends into illegal activities in which they
have mutually or jointly indulged, the special kinds of favors they did
for each other, and the resulting advantages of each in the fields of
loan sharking, gambling, illegal betting, securities, tax evasion, and
Taken directly from a book entitled „The Bronfman Dynasty“ by Peter C.
O’Bront and another Mitchell Bronfman crime partner, Sidney Rosen were
both jailed in the mid-1970s for drug money laundering and related
crimes when, in 1978, the links of the Bronfman family to organized
crime were published in the book-length study of the international
illegal drug trade, entitled „Dope, Incorporated“.
I advise all of you, everyone listening, purchase the book entitled
„Dope, Incorporated“. That is, „Dope, Incorporated“.
This book was commissioned by the LaRouche organization, and the
research was done by the „Executive Intelligence Review“. The Citizens
Agency for Joint Intelligence and the Intelligence Service have
duplicated the research along ago. You remember, folks, we did a
five-part series on the ADL already once before.
Bronfman, according to Quebec police sources, ordered his attorneys to
prepare a multi-million dollar libel suit, but after careful
deliberation, the attorneys strongly argued against such an action.
Instead, Bronfman reportedly poured large amounts of money into the
Almost immediately, the Anti-Defamation League began a shrill publicity
and dirty tricks campaign slandering LaRouche as an anti-semite and
demanding his elimination. They eventually framed him and sent him to
He is free now. He has been released. He has documented his frame-up.
The facts say that Lyndon LaRouche, no matter what you think of his
politics, was innocent. He was put away because he did what I’m doing
tonight. He told the truth about the ADL.
In its March/April 1990 edition, the West German magazine, „Semite“,
self-described as „the independent Jewish magazine“, published a
blistering expose of ADL Honorary Vice Chairman Edgar Bronfman’s dealing
with the now-toppled regime of East German communist dictator, Erich
Honecker. The article by Jacob Dachauer <sp?>, entitled „A Whiskey for
the Holocaust“, documents how Bronfman used his post as President of the
World Jewish Congress to make deals with the Honecker regime on behalf
of his Seagrams liquor empire, and is accompanied by a picture of
Bronfman receiving the highest state medal of People’s Friendship in
Gold from Honecker in October of 1988.
The essence of the „Semite“ expose is that Bronfman used his credentials
as head of the once-respected World Jewish Congress to absolve the
German Democratic Republic of any responsibility for the war-time
holocaust in return for a series of lucrative concessions to market his
whiskey in the German communist paradise.
If you’re a Jewish patriot, I hope you were listening to that.
As the „Executive Intelligence Review“ has reported, Bronfman’s
courtship of the Honecker regime began in 1986 when an associate of his
traveled to East Berlin to meet with Klaus Geise <sp?>, the communist
regime’s Secretary of State for Religious Affairs.
Klaus Geise’s son is Gregor Geise <sp?>, the reformer successor to
Honecker as Chief of the S.E.D. Communist Party, now called the P.D.S.
In subsequent trips, Bronfman met with Honecker and S.E.D. Central
Committee member Hermann Axen <sp?>. During one visit in 1988, Bronfman
pledged that he would personally arrange a state visit to Washington,
D.C. by Honecker by 1990 at the latest. Subsequent events, of course,
made that impossible.
Edgar’s brother and business partner, Charles Bronfman of Montreal,
became a prominent figure in Canadian East German friendship groups and
had veto power over all G.D.R. visas issued to Canadians until the
collapse of the communist regime in November 1989.
These extensive G.D.R. links have led some intelligence analysts to
conclude that Edgar and Charles Bronfman have especially close ties to
General Markus Wolf, the head of the East German… and I can’t even
pronounce it, but it’s called „STASSE“ <sp?>. STASSE. That’s the East
German Intelligence Service, and also to a leading protege of the late
KGB and Soviet Communist Party boss, Yuri Andropov.
Edgar Bronfman enjoys equally close ties to the regime in Moscow, and
those links have grown even firmer since the accession to power of
Mikhail Gorbachev in 1985.
According to sources familiar with Bronfman’s Russian links, the
Canadian whiskey baron has been a long-time associate of Alexander
Yakovlev, the former Soviet Ambassador in Ottawa, who was one of
Gorbachev’s closest advisors. Gorbachev is now in San Francisco at the
Presidio trying to bring about the one-world government. Yakovlev sits
on both the Politburo and the newly-formed Presidential Council.
In scores of speeches and commentaries written since Gorbachev rose to
power, Bronfman has called upon the United States to grant the Soviet
Union most-favored-nation status, membership in GATT, and access to the
most advanced western technologies.
In a press release issued by his office on March 22nd, 1989, for
example, Bronfman hailed Gorbachev for overturning socialism in one
„It is in United States interest to prevent even a partial reversal of
Bronfman is a board member of the United States Soviet Trade and
Economic Cooperation Council, called USSTECC, a collection of American
„Fortune 500“ executives and Soviet trade officials actively pushing
expanded trade between the two super-powers.
According to a United States State Department document, the Soviet
delegation to USSTECC is known by the CIA to be dominated by KGB and
GRU–which most of you don’t know about: it is the Soviet military
intelligence–operatives. Up until recently, the Soviet Co-chairman of
the group was KGB General Yvgeni Petrovich Petrovenov <sp?>, a long-time
Stalin ally, who survived the post-Stalin shifts and became the head of
the Soviet Chamber of Commerce.
On January 23rd, 1989, syndicated columnists Evans and Novak reported on
a secret meeting at Edgar Bronfman’s New York City apartment, which also
involved USSTECC officials Dwayne Andreas and James Giffen, together
with Morris Abrams and Simek Denitz <sp>?>. The group reportedly
hatched plans to mobilize Zionist lobby support for the repeal of the
Jackson-Vanneck <sp?> Amendment, in exchange for unrestricted Soviet
Jewish immigration to Israel.
The genesis of that scheme dates back to January 1985 when Edgar
Bronfman, at the Governing Board meeting of the World Jewish Congress in
Vienna, proposed that the organization oppose the Reagan
administration’s Strategic Defense Initiative on Jewish grounds.
When Bronfman also announced in April of that same year that he would
lead the World Jewish Congress in an effort to prevent President Reagan
from visiting a German cemetery at Bittburg <sp?> during his state visit
to the Federal Republic, Moscow reciprocated by inviting him to the
Soviet Union in his official capacity as World Jewish Congress
Chairman. The invitation, extended by Russian Federation Justice
Minister, Alexander Sukarev <sp?>, specifically proposed to discuss
Soviet Jewish immigration.
In similar gestures of support for Gorbachev, Bronfman has taken the
point in forcing the resignation of the head of the West German
Parliament, Philip Geninger <sp?>, for a speech delivered in November
1988 on the 50th anniversary of Nazi’s „Night of the Broken Glass“
In addition, at a widely-publicized press conference in Budapest,
Hungary, on May 4th, 1987, Bronfman branded Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim an essential component of the Nazi killing machine.
Now, the charges against Waldheim were based largely on Soviet-forged
documents and perjured testimony, and were part of a major
destabilization of Austria and the Vatican. No wonder Bronfman became a
frequent commuter between New York and Moscow.
You see, weeks after Bronfman’s secret New York City planning session on
February 11th, 1989, Edgar Bronfman led the largest delegation of Jewish
leaders to ever visit Moscow.
On December 13th, 1989, Bronfman was back in Moscow again, this time
heading a delegation of 100 western Jewish leaders to attend the opening
of a Jewish cultural center.
One week later, Kenneth Jacobson, the International Affairs Director of
the ADL, announced that an ADL delegation would also visit Moscow in
early 1990 to pursue President Gorbachev’s offer to open an office in
the Soviet capitol.
Next to Edgar Bronfman, Minneapolis grain merchant Dwayne Andreas, who
participated in the Bronfman apartment meeting in which the „Jews For
Grain“ plot was activated, is the ADL patron most responsible for the
deep ties between the League and the Russian regime.
Although Andreas is not Jewish, he is one of the ADL’s most generous
donors. At a critical point in the late 1970s, when the ADL was
financially on the skids, Andreas, at the request of ADL National
Chairman, Burton Joseph, of the Minneapolis agricultural equipment firm,
I. E. Joseph, put up the seed money to establish the Anti-Defamation
Andreas’s relations with the ADL date back to his early political
training by ADL National Chairman, Ben Epstein, a relationship that
Andreas described during Congressional testimony in 1987 as, quote:
„Mr. Ben Epstein, may he rest in peace, who was my friend for 20 years,
to his everlasting credit was my mentor and guidance on the matters of
diplomatic positions. I worked with him for weeks on this problem of
how to expand trade with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.“
End quote. The September 26th, 1986 „Wall Street Journal“, in a front
page piece, titled „Gorbachev’s Pal: Dwayne Andreas Gains a Position as
the Kremlin’s Apparent Favorite“, identified Andreas as the successor to
Occidental Petroleum’s Chairman Armand Hammer, now 91, as the Soviet
regime’s favorite capitalist.
Actually, Armand Hammer is no longer with us, ladies and gentlemen, and
has been exposed as a raging communist.
It was apparently Andreas, who has had more private audiences with
Gorbachev than any other westerner, who arranged the invitation for the
ADL to set up shop in Moscow, ostensibly in order to help combat
anti-semitism inside Russia.
A former State Department Intelligence Officer told the „Executive
Intelligence Review“ that the real purpose of establishing the ADL
office in Moscow was to improve the Anti-Defamation League coordination
with the KGB in running pro-Gorbachev propaganda inside the United
Another feature of the ADL’s current go-east push is the effort by
Bronfman and others to move in on the lucrative new markets in the
liberated nations of central Europe on behalf of organized crime.
For instance, the Canadian real estate billionaires, the Reichmann
brothers, represented by the ADL-linked law firm of Shay Gould and the
ADL-linked investment house of Bier Sterns <sp?>, are part of a new
investment consortium seeking to establish a major financial hub in
Budapest with the blessings of both Gorbachev’s regime and the United
States State Department.
ADL links to the Bolshevik regime and its intelligence services date
back literally decades. Even during World War II, when the Soviet Union
and the United States were allied against the Nazis, certain ADL
officials were kept on United States military intelligence watch lists
as suspected Soviet agents. According to one eye-witness account,
Sanford Griffith, who headed the equivalent of the Fact-Finding Division
during and immediately following World War II, was on such a list.
And if you’ll remember, the ADL was caught spying not too long ago on
American citizens, American groups, and even Jews.
The April 5th, 1955 issue of „Headlines and What’s Behind Them“,
catalogues a controversial instance in which the ADL provided cover for
a known Soviet intelligence agent.
The Soviet agent in question, Vladimir Stepankowski <sp?>, had been
deported from France and Switzerland in the mid-1930s after having been
identified as the head of the Bolshevik Information Bureau, only to
migrate to the United States and immediately go to work for the
Anti-Defamation League’s Mitchell Solomon.
Through Solomon’s ties to United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Eugene
Prince, an intelligence officer in charge of immigration background
checks, Stepankowski was able to penetrate American war-time
In 1954, he was identified by Elizabeth Bentley <sp?> as a member of a
Soviet spy ring. However, he was saved from prosecution through the
intervention of his Anti-Defamation League case officer, Mitchell
By this point, the ADL had deployed the Soviet agent into the National
Renaissance Party of Robert Madal <sp?>, a Neo-Nazi counter gang that
had been set up largely by the Anti-Defamation League infiltrators, in
order to create the specter of a new fascist menace inside the United
States in order to control Jews and keep them in line.
According to the „Headlines“ account, the Madal group attracted a small
corps of members, principally on the basis of the Anti-Defamation League
providing NRP founder Madal with a stable of prostitutes from the Mickey
Jelkie <sp?> vice ring. Anti-Defamation League officials Ben Epstein
and Arnold Forster then reportedly used Stepankowski’s information to
inundate the Veld Commission–that’s the House Unamerican Activities
Commission–with scare stories that the NRP had swelled to 200 to 700
members in New York City alone.
Joseph McCarthy was right. And this nation as a whole did him wrong.
Good night until Monday. And God bless you all.
