- Tuesday, July 6 was supposed to be the first day of Shabak
provocateur Avishai Raviv's trial for not preventing the murder of Yitzhak
Rabin. The truthseekers of Israel were ready and thanks to radio and newspaper
articles by Adir Zik and Nadia Matar, hundreds were planning to attend
as witnesses. So the plotters cancelled the trial and rescheduled it for
September first, same place, Jerusalem Bet Mishpat Shalom, same time 8:30
- Those protecting Raviv and the murderers of Rabin think
they can outmanoeuvre and wear down those Israelis who want the truth of
Rabin's demise revealed. They are wrong. The issue of Rabin's murder and
Raviv's role in it will never go away until all the questions are answered.
- Every time those in charge of the coverup pull one of
their stunts, I will release more sensitive information that I have previously
held back because I lacked the full story. Last month, right after Tel
Aviv Police closed the complaint jointly signed by twenty citizens on March
10 to reexamine vital evidence and, essentially, reopen the Rabin murder
investigation, I released the hint: Peres, France. I did not elaborate.
A French Jewish journalist published an accusation that Mitterand advised
Peres about his own staged assassination plot early in his career and that
Peres was more than merely fascinated by the details. The journalist noted
that Shabak chief Carmi Gillon was in Paris the night of the assassination,
he believed, receiving post-murder intelligence commands. The newspaper
which printed the story came under such heavy attack that the journalist
suspects he hit the scenario on the head.
- Since I was missing complete documentation, I did not
include this episode in my book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin. However, I
believe the French Connection to Rabin's murder is real and that if Carmi
Gillon wishes that it wasn't, he had better, once and for all, explain
what he was doing in Paris on the night of Rabin's murder.
- In the wake of Raviv's trial cancellation, I'm angry
again. This time I will release the bizarre army and personal records of
Yoram Rubin, Rabin's personal bodyguard, whose lies to the police, Shamgar
Commission and the judges at Yigal Amir's trial I recorded in great detail
in my book, and by process of elimination of those who were in Rabin's
car for his final journey, is considered the prime murder suspect by many
of my readers.
- I received Rubin's army records from a soldier and patriot.
I can say no more. He explained, "I've never seen a military career
like it. Nothing matches his later career as Rabin's personal bodyguard.
Such a position requires an altruistic and courageous personality; someone
trustworthy who is willing to put another person's life first for an average
salary. Rubin's file describes someone else, whose life should have sent
alarm bells ringing in the Shabak."
- The Secret IDF File On Yoram Rubin
- From 23/11/83 to 10/04/84, Yoram Rubin began his military
career in a combat soldiers' course, eventually achieving the rank of Master
Sargent. On 24/4/85 he was made commander of a riflery squad, not a high
ranking position, nonetheless a proud achievement.
- Then on 24/4/86, he was suddenly demoted to truck driver,
a position he retained until after the Rabin assassination when on 26/3/97,
he was reinstated as an infantryman.
- This is part one of Rubin's career that doesn't make
sense to my informant, as he explains: "Rubin must have done something
incredibly wrong, though whatever it was is not in his official record.
No infantry squad commander would voluntarily switch to truck driver. It's
the lowliest and dirtiest position in the army and most of the drivers
have names like Peretz and Abutbul, not Rubin.
- "But that's not the real problem. No truck driver
is going to become the prime minister's personal bodyguard. That doesn't
ever happen, even in something like Rubin's case, where he had a lot of
family pull in the security world. An infantry sargent demoted to truck
driver would never be considered for such a sensitive post."
- Part two of Rubin's story feels far more sinister. From
March 1994 to April 1995, while Rubin was a truck driver in the Reserves,
and Rabin's personal bodyguard in civilian life, he began taking unexplainable
trips abroad. On 3/4/94 Rabin took a three day trip out of Israel, returning
on the 6th. Then four days later, on the 10th, he took a two day trip,
returning on the 12th. He took a four day trip from 22-26/8/94 and finally,
from 14-16/3/95, he took a two day journey. This was his last trip abroad
until Rabin's assassination six months later. But after Rabin's death,
the trips began again, as we shall see.
- The informant asked me to do a bit of investigating for
him. He noted, "Very few Israelis can afford the luxury of a two or
three day trip, let alone two of them in a week. This is nearly out of
the question for someone on a bodyguard's salary. I have discussed this
with a few trusted friends and we came to the conclusion that as Rabin's
bodyguard, he accompanied him on foreign trips. But we don't know this
for a fact. We'd appreciate if you could find Rabin's itinerary for these
dates. If Rabin was out of the country, fine, Rubin has an explanation.
If not, he should be made to give one."
- This bit of research was a piece of cake. While Rubin
embarked on his first voyage, Rabin was testifying at the Shamgar Commission
Inquiry into the Hebron massacre. During Rubin's second trip, Rabin was
in Tel Aviv addressing the Histadrut convention. During the third Rubin
trip, Rabin was in Jerusalem cancelling a planned meeting with the Meretz
caucus. And while Rubin was abroad for his fourth and final trip prior
to the assassination, Rabin was giving a major speech to the Knesset, condemning
Islamic terror in unbridled language.
- Rubin took his mini-trips on business unrelated to guarding
Rabin. On hearing my results, the informant said, "I thought so but
I had to be sure. Whatever these trips were for, and they were not weekend
vacations, why did they stop six months before the assassination and start
again right after?
- "My colleagues tried to come up with any and every
explanation. Maybe he had a gambling problem and took three day gambling
junkets? If so, why did he kick his addiction for six months and start
again? Why would the secret service employ a gambling junkie to guard the
prime minister in the first place? Did he have a lover abroad? Why fly
to her twice in a week instead of just staying a week? Nothing worked.
These flights form an abnormal pattern for a bodyguard, in fact for nearly
everyone. He obviously wasn't paying for them, so who was?"
- And now part three of the mystery of Yoram Rubin's life:
the Peres continuation. After the assassination Rubin utterly lied to the
Shamgar Commission of Inquiry into the Rabin Assassination. ( It seems
Chief Justice Meir Shamgar gets to preside over all the juicy coverups).
He testified that after the first of Amir's shots, he pounced on Rabin.
The amateur film of the event proves he did nothing of the kind. The same
for his testimony that Rabin helped him get up and the two of them jumped
into the limousine. Rubin blundered just as badly on his supposed wound.
He insisted that Amir shot him from above and that the bullet travelled
from the elbow to the armpit horizontally, a ballistic impossibility. But
Shamgar accepted every one of his lies, thus providing the basis for the
coverup of the Rabin assassination.
- Undoubtedly the Shabak and its Secret Service division,
were well aware of Rubin's lies: so why did they immediately assign him
to be the new prime minister Shimon Peres' personal bodyguard? And why
would Peres be insane enough to trust the bodyguard who bungled away the
life of his predecessor? And why did Rubin's trips start again? He took
his first in nine months from the 5th to the 12th of January 1996, as the
Shamgar Commission was preparing its deliberations. It was the first of
16 such journeys abroad from then until the IDF records stop on 28/5/98.
The trips now were more frequent, 16 in two years and five months and bit
longer, averaging 5-6 days in duration.
- The informant notes, "Rubin had travel expenses
rivalling the wealthiest businessmen in the country. Do you think it makes
any sense for a civil servant in a sensitive security detail to be a jet-setter?
I'll tell you what my people think: we believe he was receiving and depositing
money for services rendered and for keeping quiet. And that's why we think
Peres took him on as his personal bodyguard without hesitation. That's
what we think." I will present Rubin's IDF records to anyone who wishes
to see them.
