Israel’s Fifth Column: The People in Between

By: Jeff Gates

Wolf BlitzerWolf Blitzer


In October 2007, Defense Secretary Robert Gates coined a generic term to describe the most challenging combatants when waging unconventional warfare. He called them simply “the people in between.” Those people, a dominant force in mainstream American media, comprise a fifth column in support of those skilled at waging war by way of deception.






Jeff’s article is well done, and his selection and focus on Wolf Blitzer is an excellent choice  to highlight the system and the process. I recall, TheGulf War was, basically, brought to us live by CNN.”  On the ground, we saw the two stars of CNN Wolf Blitzer and Peter Arnett in action.  Peter Arnett in downtown Baghdad , pretty much alone after all of the other journalists had moved on to safer zones.  This was pure Pete Arnett in action.


To cut a short story longer, Well, I was old enough to remember distinctly seeing there on the big screen in the corner, Peter Arnett, live, describing what it sounded like when a missile came screaming down the street in front of his Hotel in Baghdad.


Yep!  he was right there, where the truth was happening reporting for CNN.


At the other end of the screen, sharing time with him between missiles, was this little man with the big Rambo name, “Wolf.”


Wolf Blitzer, bringing you the war, first hand, from Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, or wherever he was.  Back there making good face time with the guys who were really running the war.  Wolf Blitzer, a key player in the Zionist/CNN propaganda machine which works closely with US Public Dis and misinformation services in AIPAC governed Washington DC. 


It was not a hellova lot safer back there, too… scuds were not aimed, they just went where they will, but they can land anywhere, and usually go bang.  And, I remember he did have to break and run for cover from one which came in close enough to be heard…. or was that off-stage management?  More deception? 


It was obvious then, that these two were a team, bringing to the world their first, real-time, online, live war.  Right in our living room! 


And, it was also apparent, that when the show was over, there would be one hellova scramble to see which one came out as Top CNN Banana.


A gutsy, straight shooting guy, Arnett seems to have been one who never bothered with a lie when the truth would do.  For this he was charged with  “unpatriotic journalism” and subsequently, walking on too many toes in his quest for the truth.  He was ultimately fired from CNN for getting too close to the truth, and disenfranchised in most American mainstream media.  The powers of CNN were far-reaching, not to be trifled with. 


With Blitzer’s inside connections, high up in Jerusalem, and his eagerness to please, versus Arnett’s poor reputation for reporting what he was seeing instead of what the bosses wanted the viewers to think was seen, it was a “no contest.” 

Israel 1, the World 0!


Wolf!  What a big name for such a little man!

    I suspect that Blitzer’s AIPAC association has influenced him not to cover stories on his CNN shows like the AIPAC espionage case to include the association with Jane Harman and the Chas Freeman situation as he has never addressed the primary motivation for 9/11 either – he had to have seen the exchange with Lee Hamilton of the 9/11 Commission via the ‘What Motivated the 9/11 Hijackers?’ youtube included on the right side at http://NEOCONZIONISTTHREAT.COM and at as well):

    Sometime in the mid-1970s, Blitzer also worked for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as the editor of their monthly in house publication, the Near East Report.[8][9] While at AIPAC, Blitzer’s journalism focused on Middle East affairs as it relates to United States foreign policy.

    September 2, 2009 — Arab governments forced to rely on AIPAC and AIPAC-linked lobbyists and influence peddlers

    WMR has learned from two knowledgeable individuals that various Arab governments have been forced to use lobbyists affiliated with the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) because Arabs have no chance of advancing their interests in Washington without the approval of lobbyists connected to Israeli interests.

    Although the close ties between AIPAC and the American Turkish Council (ATC) are well-documented, especially after the disclosures of former FBI Turkish translator Sibel Edmonds, the links between AIPAC and lobbyists charging Arab governments exorbitant fees to advance their causes, is not as well known. A former State Department official told WMR that although most of the Israeli-connected lobbyists are close to the Israeli government, some, who are Jewish, are more independent of Israel. However, all are cashing in on opening doors for Arabs, including Palestinians, in Washington.

    WMR was told by one Arab media source that CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, a former official of AIPAC and a correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, has vetted a number of Palestinian officials and Palestinian-Americans for relatively favorable exposure on CNN who are “pre-approved” by the Israeli government. The practice seriously calls into question CNN’s journalistic integrity in its coverage of Middle East issues.

    The former State Department official pointed to Morocco as one country that has entered into a strategic partnership with the Israeli Lobby in Washington to advance Moroccan interests. The post of US. ambassador to Morocco has been held two American Jews with close ties to AIPAC since the Clinton administration. Clinton’s ambassador to Rabat was Marc Ginsberg. He was followed Edward Gabriel who served until the end of the Clinton administration. President Obama’s ambassador to Morocco is Samuel Kaplan, a Minneapolis lawyer and Democratic Party activist and fundraiser.

    The former State Department official said that when a former Algerian ambassador to Washington discovered that he had to deal with AIPAC-affiliated lobbyists to advance Algeria’s interests in Congress and the White House, he was appalled. The State Department official told him to take a page from the Moroccans on lobbying as an Arab envoy in Washington.

    One person cited as a key in the Israeli Lobby shakedown of Arab governments is said to be Representative Jane Harman (D-CA), who was the subject of a brief FBI investigation for engaging in questionable activities with Israeli embassy officials and a major AIPAC funder over interceding with the Justice Department to stop an investigation of AIPAC espionage in Washington on behalf of Israeli intelligence.

    Another country that plays the AIPAC lobbyist card is Egypt, which receives billions of dollars in U.S. military assistance, all vetted beforehand by Israeli lobbyist interests in Washington. Daniel Kurtzer served as George W. Bush’s ambassador to Israel from 2001 to 2005. Prior to that posting, Kurtzer, the former dean of Yeshiva University, served as Bill Clinton’s ambassador to Egypt. Kurtzer is now the commissioner of the Israel Baseball League.
