On November 18, 2011 – Israeli daily Haaretz claimed that former US secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, had called his fellow Jews as “self-serving bastards“.
Former US Secretary of State (1973-77), Henry (Heinz) Kissinger, has an interesting history of relation with Israel and the Jewish Lobby. He is committed Zionist Jew who blindly supports the Zionist entity. However, sometimes he has given priority to the US interests over the Jewish interests.
According to daily Haaretz, American Jewish groups lobbying the Nixon White House on behalf of their Soviet brethren got under Henry Kissinger’s skin in demanding intense pressure on Moscow to the point that he denounced them to a White House colleague as self-serving “bastards,” newly released documents indicate.
Among the appeals flooding the White House was one from the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir to President Richard Nixon in August 1972 asking him to protest to the Kremlin its levying of fees for exit permits.
According to transcripts released by the State Department, Kissinger, who was Haig’s deputy, said to fellow Jewish White House official Leonard Garment: “Is there a more self-serving group of people than the Jewish community?”
Garment replied: “None in the world.”
At this point, Kissinger was quoted as saying “What the hell do they think they are accomplishing?”
Kissinger went on: “You can’t even tell bastards anything in confidence because they’ll leak it.”
On March 3, 2011 – to the great pleasure of the Jewish Lobby, Kissinger, sent a letter to US Presideni Barack Obama asking him to pardon the convicted Jewish-American spy, Jonathan Pollard. Pollard is in prison since 1985.
In March 1973, Henry Kissinger, then national security adviser, had irked the Jewish Lobby and Israel. He reportedly said in response to Israeli prime minister Golda Meir’s campaign at the White House for open emmigration of Russian Jews to depopulate native Muslim and Christian Palestinians: “The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in Soviet Union, it’s not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern“.
Many people consider Henry Kissinger a War Criminal and want him to be investigated by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
