Piper

A U T H O R ’ S . .B I O G R A P H Y
MICHAEL COLLINS PIPER

. . .For some 25 years, acting through independent American media outlets, Michael Collins Piper has been one of the most outspoken, prolific and widely-read American journalists to take a consistent stance against unquestioning U.S. support for Israel, criticizing U.S. policy that has injured American relations with the Arab and Muslim worlds. Not surprisingly, Piper has frequently been the target of published attacks by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), among other Israeli lobby factions in the United States.
. . .Piper’s book, Final Judgment: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy — which documents multiple connections by Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, to the murder of President John F. Kennedy — has been harshly attacked by the Israeli lobby, but has emerged as one of the most convincing and enthusiastically received volumes ever written on the topic. In 1991 the distinguished Beirut-based firm of Dar El Ilm Lilmalayin published the first-ever Arabic-language translation of Final Judgment. In 2004 the book was released in an English-language edition in Malaysia and is also being published in the Malay language and in Japanese. Piper’s other books, The High Priests of War, a study of the pro-Israel neo-conservative network that orchestrated the American war against Iraq, and The New Jerusalem, a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the wealth and power of the Zionist community in America, have received widespread distribution both here and abroad and have been published in Malaysia in both English and Malay. The High Priests of War is scheduled for publication in Arabic.

PROFESSIONAL

. . .• In 1979, as a student, served as an intern on the national campaign staff of the John Connally for President Committee. The former Governor of Texas and Treasury Secretary under President Richard M. Nixon, Connally — who was wounded during the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas in 1963 — was forced to withdraw from the presidential race after his outspoken critique of U.S. favoritism toward Israel and bias against the Arab world resulted in widespread attacks in the American media.
. . .• Starting part time in 1980 as a student and then full time in 1983, began working for Liberty Lobby, a Washington, D.C.- based citizens lobby that was a longtime #1 target of the Anti- Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith because of Liberty Lobby’s criticism of U.S. favoritism toward Israel. Remained in employment with Liberty Lobby and its weekly newspaper, The Spotlight, until June 27, 2001, at which time Liberty Lobby closed its doors. Note: although Liberty Lobby had been a successfully flourishing entity, the institution was forced into bankruptcy following a civil lawsuit.
. . .• On July 16, 2001 Piper joined former Liberty Lobby

employees and others in launching a new national weekly newspaper, American Free Press, which has some 50,000 weekly readers nationwide. Serves as a regular weekly correspondent for the newspaper and is actively engaged in its direct mail fundraising and subscription-enhancing programs, writing promotional letters, book and video advertising materials and preparing numerous special projects. Has served as treasurer and executive board member of the corporation that publishes American Free Press.
. . .• In Sept. 1994, Piper was involved in launching the then-monthly (now bi-monthly) historical magazine, The Barnes Review, which has been continuously published since that time. Serves as a Contributing Editor and has served on the board of directors of the Foundation for Economic Liberty, the corporation which publishes The Barnes Review. The magazine has some 9,000 paid subscribers (including many worldwide). Until his recent death, Dr. Issa Nakleh, longtime representative at the United Nations for the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, served alongside Piper on the editorial board of The Barnes Review. Over the past several years, Dr. Nakleh cited numerous writings by Piper in various letters, press releases and other documents issued in furtherance of the Palestinian cause.

WRITINGS, LECTURES, RADIO APPEARANCES

. . .• Over some 25 years, Piper has written an estimated 4,000 news articles and feature stories for The Spotlight and now American Free Press, not to mention dozens of feature articles for The Barnes Review magazine. Many of the articles have focused on the activities and influence of the Israel lobby in the United States and related subjects, although his work has also encompassed a wide variety of affairs, including U.S. Congressional legislation, organized crime, political history, freedom of speech and expression, American media bias and censorship, etc. His work has also appeared in Zeitenschrift, published in Switzerland and in The European magazine.

. . .• Piper has been the guest on an estimated 100 different radio talk programs and has appeared as an invited speaker at dozens of public forums, often as the featured speaker. He has also lectured before both high school and college classes where his lectures have been very well received.
. . .• In January of 2002, Piper was among the speakers at the First International Conference on Global Problems of World History, held at the Humanitarian Social Academy in Moscow, Russia under the auspices of Dr. Oleg Platonov and the board of editors of The Encyclopedia of Russian Civilization and The Barnes Review.
. . .• On March 11, 2003 Piper was the featured lecturer at the Zayed Centre for Coordination and Follow-Up in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, at which time he discussed the role of the Zionist lobby in influencing U.S. media coverage of the Palestinian problem and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Piper’s lecture was reported in a number of English-language and Arabic-language publications including Gulf News, Khaleeq Times, and Al-Wahda. Subsequent to this, the Zayed Centre released a published report of Piper’s lecture in both English and Arabic. During his visit, Piper also had the honor of being received for an extended audience by UAE Deputy Prime Minister, Sheik Sultan bin Zayed al Nahyan, at his palace in Abu Dhabi. Piper’s lecture (along with certain other lectures) created a great stir among Israeli lobby organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), to the point that these organizations highlighted Piper’s lecture in numerous press releases and in complaints to the Bush administration, resulting in pressure from the administration upon the government of Abu Dhabi which, under fire, pulled funding for the Zayed Centre. Some 10,000 reprints of Piper’s speech in Abu Dhabi have been distributed in the United States and worldwide and it has been reprinted in many locations on the Internet.
. . .• In August of 2004, Piper was invited to Kuala Lumpur,

________________________________________________

Malaysia where his books Final Judgment and The High Priests of War were released in English-language editions. While in Malaysia, Piper spoke at multiple venues to widespread acclaim.
. . .• In November of 2004, Piper was invited to Tokyo, Japan where he spoke under the auspices of prominent Japanese nationalist Dr. Ryu Ohta who translated an abbreviated version of Piper’s book, The High Priests of War, into Japanese. In addition, a Japanese translation of Piper’s book, Final Judgment, is underway.
. . .• In late 2004 and early 2005, Piper spoke at multiple venues across Canada, ranging from Toronto in the East to Vancouver in the West, under the auspices of the Canadian Association for Free Expression.
. . .• On June 23, 1986, writing in The Spotlight, Piper was the first journalist ever to identify Roy Bullock of San Francisco, California as a longtime undercover informant for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith. Although Bullock denied the charge and threatened Piper with a libel suit, the truth about Bullock’s ADL activities was officially unmasked in a widely-publicized FBI and San Francisco Police Department inquiry into the ADL in late 1992 — more than seven years after Piper first correctly linked Bullock to the ADL. Bullock later acknowledged that Piper’s Spotlight article set in motion the events that led to the FBI inquiry and the resulting scandal that tarred the ADL’s public image.
. . .Later, Piper edited and wrote the introductory material to a book describing the ADL scandal entitled: The Garbage Man: The Strange World of Roy Edward Bullock, which incorporated official FBI and police documents outlining the ADL’s spy activity aimed against Arab-Americans and others targeted by the Israeli lobby.
. . .When former Rep. Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey (R-Calif.) initiated legal action against the ADL on behalf of individuals who had been targeted by the ADL, Piper provided — at McCloskey’s request — research material used by McCloskey in the course of his lawsuit. The lawsuit was recently settled by the ADL, which paid damages to its victims.

FINAL JUDGMENT — HOTLY CONTROVERSIAL

. . .Piper’s book, Final Judgment: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy, was first published in 1994. Some 35,000 copies of the 768-page book (now in an expanded, updated sixth edition, featuring more than 1,000 footnotes) are now in circulation.
. . .The book features an introduction by Dr. Robert L. Brock, a veteran African-American political activist. As noted previously, an Arabic-language edition was released in 2001 by a major Arabic-language publishing house, although to Piper’s disappointment, the firm does not seem to have made major efforts to promote it, according to Piper’s sources in the Middle East. However, in the United States, Final Judgment has been hotly controversial and has been the subject of much controversy.
. . .• In September, 1997, an intended lecture by Piper at the Saddleback College in Orange County, California — dedicated to the subject of the book — was disrupted and canceled following a heavy-handed pressure campaign by the ADL. The furor resulted in a front-page story in The LA Times and in wire service articles published across America. Despite the controversy, the staff of the Saddleback College newspaper defied the ADL pressure group and invited Piper to lecture privately to the newspaper staff.
. . .• In the early months of 2000, the book Final Judgment again stimulated widespread public controversy in the Chicago, Illinois metropolitan area when the ADL unsuccessfully attempted to prevent by the book from being placed in the Schaumburg, Illinois Public Library, one of the most distinguished library systems in the state. In May 2001, Piper appeared in person at the library and gave a lecture on the book and the surrounding controversy to some 200 persons in attendance. The affair was publicized in numerous publications in the Chicago area and was nationally referenced in the journal of the American Library Association.

. . .Final Judgment has been publicly endorsed by not only a former high-ranking U.S. State Department official (whose enthusiastic review of the book was self-published by the diplomat on amazon.com) but also by a former high-ranking Pentagon official, a well-known Hollywood screen-writer, a respected American foundation official and widely-published author and others.
. . .Final Judgment was reprinted in its expanded sixth edition in early 2004 (and in a slightly revised and updated second printing of the sixth edition in 2005) and some 5,000 additional copies have been sold, with many buyers buying as many as 16 copies (via bulk carton) at a time. During the short period when the volume was temporarily out-of-print, second-hand editions of the book were selling (in paperback) on the Internet for as much as $185 per copy, demonstrating the demand for this hotly controversial “underground best-seller.”

THE HIGH PRIESTS OF WAR
THE NEO-CONSERVATIVE WAR-MONGERS
