The Kennedys vs Israel’s Lobby (see the comments section near the bottom of the following URL):
Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ broadcast courageously conveyed why Bobby Kennedy was assassinated:
MATTHEWS: Well, for 41 years, he beat the gunman. He avoided getting killed like his brothers by people carrying guns. Eugene, for most Americans living today, he was the Kennedy. They don‘t remember Joe. Joe died in World War II fighting the Nazis, and Jack was killed in a cold war situation by a real communist lover, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Bobby was killed supporting Israel, basically, in the Middle East. These were politically motivated killings. The youngest brother survived. For most people, he was “the Kennedy.” Your thoughts about the Democratic leader, Ted Kennedy.
Sirhan Sirhan (a Palestinian) was strongly anti-Zionist. A diary found during a search of Sirhan’s home stated, “My determination to eliminate RFK is becoming more and more of an unshakable obsession. RFK must die. RFK must be killed. Robert F. Kennedy must be assassinated…Robert F. Kennedy must be assassinated before 5 June 68.” It has been suggested that the date of the assassination is significant, because it was the first anniversary of the first day of the Six Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors. When Sirhan was booked by police, they found in his pocket a newspaper article that discussed Kennedy’s support for Israel, and at his trial, Sirhan testified that he began to hate Kennedy after learning of this support.
