The Super Left Haaretz Web site recently published a statement by Carmi Gilon (they spell the name, Gillon) at a demonstration near Pardes Hanna-Karkur, who proclaimed:
“The ultra-Orthodox and national religious Orthodox politicians are the Jewish jihad, they are an existential and certain threat to the State of Israel”.
Who is Carmi Gilon?
Excerpt from The Smear Campaign Against the Right on the Rabin Assassination and the Mass Killing at Deir Yassin
Before The Rabin Assassination Took Place You Either Have to Say Head of the Shabak (The GSS) Carmi Gilon Knew About Yigal Amir or Was Blessed With Divine Inspiration
Before the Rabin assassination the author of these comments listened to a public radio program in which Carmi Gilon, the head of Israel’s GSS (secret police) known in Israel as the Shabak, as well as right-wing activist, Binyamin Kahane, son of Rabbi Meir Kahane participated. The interviewer tried to goad the young Kahane to come out in favor of assassinating Rabin, due to the tremendous rise in Terror deaths in the wake of Rabin’s Oslo Agreement with Super-Terrorist Yasir Arafat.
Binyamin refused to take the bait and did not advocate the assassination of Rabin in that interview. Carmi Gilon then made the comment on the radio show that the next would-be assassin of Rabin did not have to be an extreme right-wing settler (such as, Binyamin Kahane). The next would-be assassin could be a Yemenite College Student from Bar Ilan University, giving an exact description of Yigal Amir.
I do not believe that Carmi Gilon had “Divine Inspiration” when he gave a description of Yigal Amir. I believe he had exact information from his agent Avishai Raviv and was setting up a new smear campaign against the political right, which somehow backfired.
This is also why it was yelled out, blank bullets during the assassination attempt. This is why police ballistic tests reported Amir shot blank bullets. This is why no blood was found at the scene of the crime and Rabin was shown walking into his car on the video after the attack, which should not have been possible given the injuries he suffered. This is why Amir was allowed to get near to Rabin, even though people had already complained to the police that Amir had made death threats against Rabin.
To sum up some of the points see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yitzhak_Rabin_assassination_conspiracy_theories
Conspiracy theories have made some or all of the following claims. Others have been strident in opposing these conclusions. Police reports state that gunpowder was found on Rabin’s body and clothing, suggesting that he had been shot at point-blank range, as gunpowder travels only a few inches before dispersing. According to the official version, Amir shot from a distance at which no powder traces could have settled on Rabin’s body and clothing. Surgery reports describe a bullet wound with the bullet entrance in the chest are inconsistent with the eyewitness reports and the Kempler video, which suggests that Rabin was shot in the back while walking away from Yigal Amir. Source of this provides link to a video in Hebrew and a written, inaccurate translation to English. Both versions, however, contain no hint that there was a chest entry wound, merely that there was a wound in the chest (can equally be an exit wound). Both versions report two gunshots rather than three.
Rabin would have walked after Amir’s shots in a manner inconsistent with gunshot, an impossibility if they shattered the vertebrae. Each medical record describes wounds which are “completely different” in nature to those concluded by the official Shamgar Commission. Medical descriptions of Rabin’s condition are described as suddenly appearing to change. An anonymous physician who consulted Barry Chamish opined that “[t]he first two wounds, to the chest and abdomen occurred before Rabin’s arrival. The third, frontal chest wound, had to have been inflicted after he entered the hospital,” and that “it is inconceivable that Rabin had no spinal damage. The six members of the operating team were too skilled to have all been wrong about that.” Three police officers who had been present testified that “when Yitzhak Rabin was placed in the car, he showed no visible wounds.” Gordon Thomas in his book “Gideon’s Spies” adds: “The surgeons insisted there was no possible gunshot wound that would have allowed Rabin to leave the attack site showing no evidence of a wound and arrive at the hospital with multiple damage … subsequently the doctors have refused to discuss the matter.” Rabin’s motorcade took 22 minutes to arrive at the hospital, even though he had a highly experienced chauffeur, and the streets were cordoned off. The distance between the crime scene and the hospital is a five-minute walk. Police ballistics tests on shell casings found at the scene did not match Amir’s gun. No gunpowder residue was found on Amir’s hands, clothing, or hair. Gunpowder residue would inevitably have been present if Amir had shot genuine bullets, as opposed to blanks. No blood was seen coming from Rabin at the scene, despite wounds to his lung and spleen, nor was any found later at that location. By contrast witnesses describe blood “gushing” from a chest wound upon arriving at hospital. Some witnesses stated that someone shouted, “It’s nothing … they’re blanks. It’s a toy gun.” A Shin Bet (secret service) agent testified that “I heard a policeman shout to people to calm down. The shot is a blank.” Policeman Moshe Ephron stated: “The shots didn’t sound natural. If they were real shots, they should have sounded much louder.” Leah Rabin stated that a security guard told her immediately after the incident that the bullets shot at her husband were “blanks”. She further stated that she was told by an Israeli security chief that she “should not worry as the whole thing had been staged.” Amir, who was employed by the Shin Bet in Latvia about two years before the murder, commented at a court hearing, “If I were to tell the whole truth, the entire system would collapse. I know enough to destroy this country.” Nahum Shahaf, an Israeli physicist who went on to play a major role in the Muhammad al-Durrah affair, has asserted that he had photographic evidence that the wrong man was being held for the assassination. He blamed the assassination on a conspiracy headed by Shimon Peres, who took over from Rabin as Prime Minister and later became the President of Israel.
Comment: Carmi Gilon is trying to raise his ratings with the Anti-religious left in order to make it harder on the Netanyahu government to reopen the investigation of the Rabin Assassination. It is also probably true that he would never have gotten his Shabak job in the first place, if not for the fact that he was a hardcore leftist.
New Addition (13 Sivan 5783, June 2 2023):
See the Hebrew interview of Professor Kedar at https://www.inn.co.il/news/603143 that at the night of the assassination, the Shabak knew that a short Yemenite guy (Yigal Amir) who wanted to shoot at Rabin, would be at the rally attended by Rabin. The Shabak failed to inform the police who were also guarding Rabin to prepare for this.
Prof. Kedar also provides additional evidence for a Shabak coverup.
