A study published by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in 1991 and authored by investigator Kenneth Timmerman documents that tens of American firms do business with Iran, Iraq, Syria and Libya, in the areas of conventional and non-conventional weaponry.
The vast majority of these firms are German owned, partially or completely.
That is the way in which German firms circumvent the ban on German firms exporting such substances.
What I learned from my visit to the Bundestag in Bonn from German opposition leader Rudolf Dessler was that this loophole allows German firms to simply establish subsidiaries abroad which operate with the full knowledge and consent of the German government.
These firms often seek out the best and brightest of Jewish minds to develop their technical capacity to its finest.
Meanwhile, all of these firms work on contractual arrangements and with the full clearance and authorization and confidentiality of the US Department of Defence.
As a US state department official once told told me, “we keep Pollard in jail to make sure that we’ll see no more Jew-boy heroes ever again”.
What we need now are a hundred Pollards who will indeed blow the whistle on the dealings of the American/German industrial complex with the nations who remain in a state of war with Israel and the Jewish people.
The problem remains that many of these companies also do business in Israel, thereby muting many potential Israeli whistle-blowers.
A theory? Perhaps.
Run it up the flagpole, see if anyone salutes.
