Murdoch’s Deeply Hidden Jewish Roots — A Biography

By Christopher Bollyn
American Free Press

Christopher Bollyn is an investigative journalist who has written extensively on the events of September 11, 2001 in the Washington-based American Free Press. He has researched different aspects of the 9/11 attacks and uncovered facts and evidence that challenge the official version of events. tried to smear Bollyn as an “anti-Semite” in order to discredit him and diminish the significance of his work. At the helm of both organizations, the ADL and Fox News, is an Australian-born Zionist named Keith Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch’s Jewish Roots

Murdoch “became an American citizen for business reasons,” according to Richard H. Curtiss, editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Keith Rupert was born in Melbourne, Australia, on March 11, 1931. “Rupert’s father, Sir Keith Murdoch, was a newspaper publisher, and his mother an Orthodox Jew,” Curtiss wrote, “although Murdoch never offers that information in his biographies.”

Murdoch’s father married Elisabeth Joy Greene, daughter of Rupert Greene in 1928. They had one son, Keith Rupert and three daughters. Later in life, Keith Rupert chose to use Rupert, the first name of his Jewish maternal grandfather.

The young Keith Rupert was educated at Australia’s fashionable Geelong private school, and went on to the elitist and aristocratic Oxford University in England, according to Candour (UK) magazine.

“Rupert’s father Sir Keith Murdoch attained his prominent position in Australian society through a fortuitous marriage to the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family, née Elisabeth Joy Greene. Through his wife’s connections, Keith Murdoch was subsequently promoted from reporter to chairman of the British-owned newspaper where he worked. There was enough money to buy himself a knighthood of the British realm, two newspapers in Adelaide, South Australia, and a radio station in a faraway mining town,” Candour wrote in 1984. “For some reason, Murdoch has always tried to hide the fact that his pious mother brought him up as a Jew.”

While Murdoch may have “tried to hide” his Jewish roots, he has been quite forthright about his support for extreme right-wing Zionists, such as Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon.

Netanyahu, who wrote a book entitled The War on Terror: How the West Can Win in 1986, is a frequent commentator on Murdoch’s Fox News.

Murdoch’s support for Zionism extremists is well known and a matter of record. As New York Governor George Pataki said, “There is no newspaper in the U.S. more supportive of Israel than the [Murdoch’s] New York Post.”

It is through a network of Zionist organizations, in which Murdoch plays a central role, that Murdoch is connected to the individuals who arranged the privatization – and obtained control of the World Trade Center – shortly before its destruction.

These key individuals are: Larry Silverstein and the former Israeli commando Frank Lowy, the lease holders of dubious repute who gained control of the WTC property six weeks before 9/11, and Port Authority Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg, who authorized the transfer of the leases.

Murdoch belongs to, and has been honored by, a number of leading Zionist organizations in which Silverstein, Lowy, and Eisenberg all hold senior positions. These organizations include the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), and the New York-based Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Fifty days before 9/11, Silverstein Properties and Lowy’s Westfield America secured 99-year leases on the WTC. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey turned control of the World Trade Center over to the private hands of Silverstein and Lowy on July 24, 2001.

Silverstein and Lowy then took control of the 10.6 million-square-foot complex, which included the twin towers office buildings and two nine-story office buildings. Silverstein and the former Israeli commando Lowy then controlled all access to the World Trade Center.

Lowy leased the shopping concourse called the Mall at the World Trade Center, which comprised about 427,000 square feet of retail space.

“Six weeks before the WTC towers were destroyed, the Port Authority completed the process of leasing them for 99 years to Larry Silverstein, the developer who had built 7 World Trade Center [which mysteriously self-demolished at 5:25 p.m. on 9/11].

“Simultaneously, the retail space underneath the complex was leased to Westfield America, the US division of an Australian company that is one of the world’s largest operators of shopping malls.” Paul Goldberger wrote in New Yorker, May 20, 2002.

“Silverstein and Westfield were given the right to rebuild the structures if they were destroyed, and Westfield has the right to expand the retail space by 30 percent,” Goldberger wrote.

Silverstein is suing for some $7.2 billion in insurance money for the loss of the destroyed World Trade Center – and his expected earnings – for property he had leased with a down payment of $100 million – of borrowed funds.

Murdoch the Zionist

“Murdoch is a close friend of Ariel Sharon,” Sam Kiley, The Times (UK) veteran journalist on the Middle East wrote about the man who took over the once famous British paper. Kiley said Murdoch’s friendship with the Israeli prime minister had caused senior staff at the paper to rewrite important copy.

“Murdoch’s executives were so afraid of irritating him that, when I pulled off a little scoop of tracking down and photographing the unit in the Israeli army which killed Mohammed al-Durrah, the 12-year-old boy whose death was captured on film and became the iconic image of the conflict, I was asked to file the piece ‘without mentioning the dead kid.’” Kiley wrote. “After that conversation, I was left wordless, so I quit.”

Sharon and Murdoch are old friends. On Oct. 15, 1982, a month after the massacres of thousands of Palestinian refugees in the Sabra and Shatila camps of Beirut, war crimes which occurred under Sharon’s direct command, the Israeli defense minister held meetings with Rupert Murdoch and others, reportedly in order to advance his “West Bank real estate grab.”

The visit with Sharon included a trip for Murdoch and his editors from New York and London that “took them on a bird’s-eye tour of Israel aboard a helicopter gunship, flying over the Golan Heights, West Bank and settlements.”

“I have always believed in the future of Israel and the goals of the international Jewish community,” Murdoch said at a spring fund-raiser for the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust on April 29, 2001.

From the beginning, News Corp., his global media company, “has been supportive of the Jewish national cause,” Murdoch said.

Larry Silverstein, who had not yet acquired the lease on the World Trade Center, attended the fund-raiser with Murdoch and reportedly said about museum chairman Robert Morgenthau’s plans to expand the museum: “I’ll support you…as long as you keep it under 110 stories.”

Murdoch and the ADL

“Henry Kissinger, Rupert Murdoch and Mortimer Zuckerman are on the [ADL] dinner committee,” according to a recent New York Times report on the ADL’s recent fund-raiser in which the controversial Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi received the ADL’s Distinguished Statesman Award.

Silverstein and Eisenberg have both held senior leadership positions with the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), a billion dollar Zionist “charity” organization, to which Murdoch and Lowy generously contribute. In 1997, Henry Kissinger presented Murdoch with the UJA’s award for “Humanitarian of the Year.”

Silverstein is a former chairman of UJA. This organization raises hundreds of millions of dollars every year for a network of Zionist agencies in the United States and Israel. Eisenberg, who was instrumental in obtaining the lease for Silverstein, is on the Planning Board of UJA.

Eisenberg in his role with the Port Authority was the key person who negotiated the 99-year leases for Silverstein and Frank Lowy’s Westfield America, who were in fact the low-bidders for the lease on the 110-story towers and the retail mall.

Murdoch and the Czechoslovakian-born Israeli commando Frank Lowy, a former fighter in Israel’s Golani Brigade, who emigrated to Australia in the 1950s, have had a long friendship, which Murdoch recounted during an American Australian Association fund-raising dinner in honor of Frank’s son, Peter S. Lowy, in New York on November 20, 2002. Larry Silverstein and his wife also attended the American Australian event.

Some reporters refer to the American Australian Association, whose membership includes James Wolfensohn, the president of the World Bank, who raised cash for Rupert Murdoch when he first expanded into the United States, as “the kangaroo mafia.”

“Frank was a brave and determined fighter,” Rafi Kocer, Lowy’s former commander, said. Lowy has donated some $350,000 to build a memorial museum in Israel for his former brigade.

Today, Lowy and his three sons control Westfield Corporation, one of the largest operators of shopping centers in the United States – and the world.

Insured Against Terrorist Attacks

On September 12, 2001, The Jerusalem Post reported: “Frank Lowy, who emigrated to Australia from Israel in 1952, owns the 99-year lease for the 425,000 square foot retail portion of the destroyed World Trade Center…Westfield said today that it has insurance cover against terrorist attacks and its earnings will not be materially affected.”

Lowy, is described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “a self-made man with a strong interest in the Holocaust and Israeli politics.”

September 11 families seek meeting with FBI on hacking


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Relatives of victims of the September 11 attacks have asked to meet the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department to discuss the agencies' preliminary inquiry into reports that News Corp reporters may have tried to hack the phones of 9/11 victims.

U.S. authorities have acknowledged they are looking into a report by Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper that reporters with the rival News of the World offered to pay a New York police officer for private phone records of some 9/11 victims.

The Mirror's report, citing an unidentified source, has yet to be independently verified but already has fueled U.S. emotions over the wider phone hacking scandal that has consumed Britain and rocked Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire.

New York attorney Normal Siegel, who represents September 11 family members in three legal cases, sent letters on Monday requesting meetings with FBI Director Robert Mueller, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Representative John Conyers, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee.

"We commend the FBI for opening a preliminary inquiry into this serious issue and we are requesting a meeting to ascertain the scope, goals and timetable of the inquiry," the letter to Mueller said.

A spokesman for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation said he could not comment on the inquiry but said the FBI's Victim Assistance Program had been in regular contact with 9/11 family matters about the probe.

"We will, of course, provide an appropriate response to any letter from representatives from the 9/11 victims," said Bill Carter of the FBI's national press office.

Siegel has represented relatives of September 11 victims in a number of cases, including a successful attempt to force New York City to release audio tapes of phone calls to emergency responders during the disaster and a losing bid to recover traces of human remains from debris buried in a landfill.

"My clients are troubled about the allegation of potential hacking and they are particularly upset that there now exists an allegation that a newspaper would seek to illegally obtain information about their loved ones," Siegel said.

"I tried in the letter not to accuse anyone, especially News Corp, of anything yet because you don't want a media frenzy accusing someone if the facts aren't there. We want to find out what the truth is," he said.

The Daily Mirror report said News of the World journalists had wanted the phone numbers of the dead as well as details of the calls they had made and received in the days leading to the attacks.

The estates of those killed on September 11 or survivors would have grounds to sue the newspaper for damages if phones were illegally hacked, with potentially greater punitive damages possible if the hacking was found to be intentional and deliberate, Siegel said.

Even if an unsuccessful attempt was made to illegally access voice mails the paper could be liable, he said.

The Dark Truth About 9/11 Emerges From The Fog of Infowar

"I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--"
- Edgar Allan Poe, A Dream Within A Dream.

Once the summer ends, we will hear more talk about another world war as Israel's delusional leaders begin to direct their brainwashed army towards Lebanon, Syria and Iran. Nuclear war is on the demented minds of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak. Peace was never an option for these two restless men whose minds are clouded by extreme hatred, and evil desires. They will do anything to stop a Palestinian state from coming into being, including starting world war three by bombing Iran.

A world war will destroy modern civilization as we know it. Many people know the world is already in a state of global emergency. Truth is outlawed in America and the West. Believers of freedom, justice and honour are laughed out of the room as "conspiracy theorists," and "nutjobs." But there are millions of us who know better and will not be deterred by these psychological attacks. We know the infowar is not for the weak minded. We are not stupid and we are not cowards.

We know who was really behind the 9/11 attacks. We know who is behind all this global chaos that has been visited upon a shell-shocked world since September 11, 2001. We know mankind is at the edge of the abyss. Our so-called democratic governments, media institutions, and political leaders have not only failed us; they have betrayed us.

The real perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks will pay for what they have done in the name of America, freedom and democracy. Believe it. Justice will be done. Real change is not a failed hope just because that two-faced traitor Barack Obama has not brought the criminals behind the 9/11 attacks and the war on terror to justice.

Evil is not the only force that is active in this world. Good people everywhere are standing up and raising their voices to call the world's attention to the dark truth about 9/11. We will not be stopped. The truth about the 9/11 attacks is not a matter of debate. The facts show that Israel and American traitors inside America's shadow national security state attacked America on September 11, 2001. They used the tragedy to unleash their mad dream: a quiet war on freedom and truth in the West, and a total war on regimes in the Middle East which have embraced the path of independence and self-reliance in defiance of U.S.-Israeli-British imperialism.

Alan Sabrosky, a Marine Corps Vietnam veteran and a 1986 graduate of the U.S. Army War College, is courageously raising public awareness about the truth of the 9/11 attacks. In an interview with Press TV on July 13, 2011, Mr. Sabrosky addressed the prejudiced notion that any alternative interpretation of the 9/11 attacks is simply a "conspiracy theory," saying:

Back in the early 80s, when I was in Washington at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, one of our visitors for a lunch and talk was a young gentlemen then named Francois Heisbourg. Heisbourg was the specialist assistant to French President Francois Mitterrand. I don't know how the subject came up, but he said, "you know, Americans never see conspiracies anywhere." "We French," he said, "we see conspiracies everywhere. And both of us are wrong."

Sabrosky continued:

This is not a conspiracy (referring to the view that Israel and high-ranking U.S. officials did 9/11) in the sense that the word is usually used, which is to denigrate an opposing argument. When someone in the United States says that "that's a conspiracy," or, "that's a conspiracy theory," by definition they mean it is irrational, illegitimate, and without proof. All I would suggest to people is that you look at the films of WTC 7, that third tower going down on September 11; you look and listen to the reports on September 11 with the secondary explosions. These are not fantasies. They happened. You look at the reports on September 12 of the apprehension of Israelis with vans of explosives and cameras filming the events on September 11. These are not fantasies. And you look at the people riddling the American government, all of the Middle East people in State, Defense, and the National Security Council; Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith, who used to be a friend of mine, by the way, from Philadelphia. These people were all part of the neoconservative movement. Many of these people are dual U.S.-Israeli nationals. All of their primary allegiance is to Israel.

Alan Sabrosky is a real American patriot. Like many others, he is educating the American people in order to save America from the evil traitors who want to turn America into a full-fledged dictatorship.

The traitors who stabbed America in the back on 9/11 were in the Bush administration, and the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans (George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Lawrence Franklin, Abram Shulsky, Michael Ledeen, Michael Chertoff, and many others).

The individuals who are part of the neocon cult worship the philosophers Leo Strauss and Machiavelli, and hate America's founding fathers. They are the scum of the Earth and the greatest enemies of freedom in our time. If their evil plan for America and the Middle East is not exposed and defeated then there won't be an America, or an Israel, or a Canada, or an England, or an Iran, or a Lebanon to speak of. Iraq and Afghanistan have already suffered at the hands of the neocon death cult. All nations that the neocons wish total war upon, including America, will experience hell on Earth if we don't come together and send these psychopathic killers back to the hell they came from.

Hungary destroys all GMO maize fields


Some 400 hectares of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said.

The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added. Unlike several EU members, GMO seeds are banned in Hungary.

Authorities have been checking for GMO crops since the beginning of this year as a new regulation came in force this March which stipulates GMO checks before seeds are introduced to the market.

The checks will continue despite the fact that seed traders are obliged to make sure that their products are GMO free, Bognar said.

Compensation unlikely

Controllers have found Pioneer and Monsanto products among the seeds planted. The free movement of goods within the EU means that authorities will not investigate how the seeds arrived in Hungary but they will check where the goods can be found, Bognar said.

Regional public radio reported that the two biggest international seed producing companies are affected in the matter and GMO seeds could have been sown on up to thousands of hectares in the country.

Local farmers complain that the use of GMO seeds has only been revealed now when it is too late to sow again and the entire year's harvest has been lost.

Another problem is that the company that distributed the seeds in Baranya county is under liquidation, therefore if any compensation is paid by the international seed producers, the money will be paid primarily to that company's creditors, rather than the farmers.

William Cooper - Initiates of the Flame

Is There Anything We Are Still Free To Do Without Government Permission?

(EndoftheAmericanDream) – If you plan on using the bathroom before you get done reading this article, you might want to check with the government to see if you are still allowed to do that. There are very, very few things that Americans still have the freedom to do today without government permission. Back in the old days, if young kids wanted to earn some extra money they would set up a little stand outside and sell some lemonade or some cookies. For many little kids, this was their very first practical experience with making money. Once upon a time, you would see lemonade stands all over the place during the summer in America. In fact, “lemonade stands” became such a part of American culture that people knew exactly what you were talking about the moment you mentioned them. Even up until a couple of decades ago, nobody would have ever dreamed that little kids would need the permission of the government in order to set up a little stand to sell some lemonade or some cookies. But today, everything has completely changed. If you are a little kid and you try to sell some lemonade in “Amerika” today, the authorities will swoop in and shut you down in a heartbeat.

This is happening all over the nation. Recently, three little girls in Midway, Georgia decided that they would set up a lemonade stand so that they could raise some money to go to a waterpark. Well, the stand was up for just one day before the police came by and cracked down on the girls.

Apparently “the law” requires that anyone selling anything to eat or drink in Midway must get a “business license” that would have cost the girls $50 a day.

Needless to say, the girls were not going to be making $50 a day selling lemonade, so they are effectively banned from ever having a lemonade stand.

So what is the big deal? Well, the police in Midway say that “health and safety” are the primary concerns. The police chief in Midway put it this way….

‘We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, or what the lemonade was made with”


Does the government now have to know everything?

This is an example of how the “nanny state” has gotten completely and totally out of control.

But this is the same kind of philosophy that caused federal agents to conduct a surprise raid on an Amish farmer at 5 AM one morning because he was selling raw milk.

We no longer have the freedom to grow food or make something to drink and sell it to our neighbors.

To the control freaks in government, that is way too “dangerous”.

Even young kids recognize how crazy this all is. The following is what one of the young girls had to say after the lemonade stand was shut down….

“It’s kind of crazy that we couldn’t sell lemonade,” added 14-year-old Casity Dixon. “It was fun, but we had to listen to the cops and shut it down.”

Yes, Casity, it is crazy.

The following is a video news report about the shutting down of this lemonade stand….

Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. In fact, this kind of thing is happening all over the nation. The following are some more examples….

*In Hazelwood, Missouri two young girls scouts have been permanently banned from selling girl scout cookies in the front yard of their own home. A neighbor ratted them out and the police swooped in rapidly to shut them down because the girls were violating a city ordinance that bans “the sale of commodities” from a home.

*Back in June, a lemonade stand run by some kids in Maryland that was raising money for a pediatric cancer charity was shut down and authorities originally slapped a $500 fine on their parents until bad publicity forced them to rescind the fine.

*In Tulare, California one little 7-year-old girl recently had her lemonade stand shut down by authorities because she did not have the proper business permits.

Unfortunately, this is just part of a larger trend. The more that government expands, the less liberty and freedom we are left with. Yes, there will always be a need for government, but our founding fathers intended for government to be much, much more limited than it is currently.

In Amerika today, if you want to do almost anything you must get the permission of the government to do it first. And usually you have to pay a fee for that permission.

For example, if you want to get married you have to get the permission of the government.

If you want to open a business, usually there is at least one license that you have to get, and in many areas there are several different kinds of licenses that you will have to apply for.

If you want to drive somewhere, you must have a license to drive, you must have your car registered, you must have your taxes paid and in many areas you must have one or more inspections of your vehicle done on a regular basis.

In fact, it is very difficult to think of anything that one can do (especially outside of a home) without the permission of the government.

In the United States today, we are being strangled by a never ending onslaught of laws, rules and regulations. Every single moment of every single day there are control freak bureaucrats out there that are dreaming up more rules and regulations to impose on us all.

Anyone that believes that this is still “the land of the free and the home of the brave” is delusional.

Today Amerika is a land of overwhelming bureaucracy where control freak politicians constantly tell us all how to live.

From the moment that our children enter school they are programmed to accept this system. In a previous article entitled “18 Signs That Life In U.S. Public Schools Is Now Essentially Equivalent To Life In U.S. Prisons“, I commented on how the nature of our public schools has fundamentally changed….

Sadly, life in many U.S. public schools is now essentially equivalent to life in U.S. prisons. Most parents don’t realize this, but our students have very few rights when they are in school. Our public school students are being watched, tracked, recorded, searched and controlled like never before. Back when I was in high school, it was unheard of for a police officer to come to school, but today our public school students are being handcuffed and arrested in staggering numbers. When I was young we would joke that going to school was like going to prison, but today that is actually true.

In previous times, Americans put up with a little bit of uncertainty and a little bit of danger because we wanted to live free.

But now we have all become so frightened and so cowardly that we are actually thankful when TSA officials feel up our private parts because we believe that somehow it is making us “safer”.

Many weak-minded Americans that love all of this “security” insist that if we don’t like how this nation is being turned into a prison then we should just leave.

Well, where in the world would we go? The sad reality is that the entire world has bought into this philosophy. In fact, there are many nations that are even worse than the United States is. I discussed this growing trend in a recent article entitled “32 Signs That The Entire World Is Being Transformed Into A Futuristic Big Brother Prison Grid“.

The entire globe is being transformed into a police state. Governments all over the planet are constantly figuring out new ways to more tightly control their populations. Everywhere you look, liberty and freedom are on the retreat. We are being told that it is for “our own good” and that more control will mean more “safety and security” for humanity.

But every totalitarian regime in history has ended badly. With all of the sophisticated technology that we have today, the ability to control people is potentially greater than ever before in history. As the world becomes a little bit more like a prison grid every single day, the potential for abuse grows. If someday all of this power gets into the wrong hands, it is going to be a nightmare unlike anything we have ever seen before.
