. . . Here's what Australian-based JFK assassination researchers have to say about FINAL JUDGMENT . . .
. . .MICHAEL COLLINS PIPER MUST BE A GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT. Upon the first release of his book, Final Judgment, a storm of controversy erupted in the United States with certain "pressure groups" trying hard to have the book banned. Since then, Final Judgment has gone through three more printings—and the controversy hasn't abated.
. . .We here in Australia believe that all theories on the JFK assassination should be heard, no matter whether you agree with them or not. Heck, we even bought and read Gerald Posner's Case Closed, and there isn't a more outlandish theory than his! Trying to get another book banned because you don't agree with it, or it isn't Politically Correct (the greatest censorship drive of the 80s and 90s), is just the kind of thing we fight against. It's just the same as groups such as the FBI and CIA "redacting" lines of text here and there. People in glass theories shouldn't throw books, so to speak.
. . .So, we here at Probable Cause are proud to review Final Judgment and hope that we never go down the path of the "American Model"—freedom of speech and the First Amendment and all that—yeah, okay, until you start speaking out and stepping on other people's toes. They line you up for a takedown. Boy, does Michael Collins Piper know about that!
. . .Okay, so after that little editorial, what is Final Judgment about? Piper's thesis is that Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, played a key role in the assassination alongside the CIA and organized crime. Throughout his presidency, JFK was involved in an increasingly bitter behind-the-scenes dispute with Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion over Israel's steadfast determination to build a nuclear arsenal. JFK wanted them to stop. But they had other ideas.
. . .Sound far-fetched? Well, actually, you'll be surprised how many well-known "JFK assassination players" have links to the Mossad and we were quite impressed with the documented evidence within the book. Still, you'll have to read this one for yourself to decide. Piper is under attack from the ADL in the U.S. for this book and, really, it's not warranted. Did the French community in the U.S. get upset when it was suggested there was a French connection in the assassination? No. But then again, perhaps they don't have the lobbying power of the ADL.

. . .Here's what some big names have said about America's #1 Banned Book:
. . • A respected former high-ranking U.S. State Department official . . .
. . . "As one who has read over 200 books on the JFK assassination, and engaged in research both as an individual and as part of various teams, I can say without fear of contradiction that Piper's book is now the definitive work on the JFK assassination. Final Judgment is the most thorough, most honest, most penetrating, most factual, and most analytically complete and systematic of all that I have read so far.
. . ."The author builds an upwardly spiraling tapestry of well documented facts that connect the threads of the conspiracy as they ascend level by level from the ground up to the very tip of the pyramid. Along the way, he breaks the conspiracy into easily digestible parts. Otherwise its sheer complexity would be nearly impossible to follow and decipher. At each level, the threads of the puzzle are woven together in such a way that the fog from the labyrinth is slowly but inexorably lifted until eventually it is peeled back completely and the outlines of the conspiracy are laid bare. What is revealed is as convincing as it is scary.
. . ."Someday America will have to face some unpleasant truths about its democracy and about how it has been, and continues to be manipulated, if not completely commandeered by those whose primary loyalties lie elsewhere. While the links at some of the levels may be tenuous, the author refuses to `fake or fudge the data’ or to be `fatally selective’ in what is included or left out—as was so clearly the case in Gerald Posner's Case Closed, or indeed as was the case in the Warren Commission's own flawed report. Piper is intrepid in following his analysis to every logical conclusion—wherever they lead and whatever the implications may be.
. . . "In short, Piper keeps his eye on the donut (`Big Picture’) and not on the hole (inessential details). He focuses on the `why and how’ of the conspiracy and unmistakably the threads all lead back to Israel, Israeli super-patriots, the Meyer Lansky led `Jewish branch of the mob,’ and the Mossad and the international `agents of influence’ under its control.
. . . "While serious researchers may quibble with inessential details in the study, such as tenuous links at some levels, or redundancies at others, those of us who have studied this issue since the days after the assassination always knew that the truth would have its own resonance—like the Garrison investigation did. We knew that the truth would have its own context, its own smell, like Peter Dale Scott's Deep Politics and the Death of JFK did. Piper's book has them all and in the grand tradition of Carl Oglesby's The

Yankee & Cowboy War, Michael Collins Piper has struck gold. He has hit the `mother lode,’ and in the process has pointed the finger at, if not tightened the proverbial noose around, the necks of the cabal of conspirators responsible for pulling the strings (and triggers) of the JFK assassination.
. . . "JFK assassination research has a new standard bearer. It will never be the same again. Because of this book, future research will begin to focus more on the `big picture,’ and turn away from constantly grinding, ad nauseam, at inconsistencies in the Warren Commission's Report. Compared to Posner's Case Closed, Final Judgment is a masterpiece."

Calhoun, Ph.D. retired as deputy division chief of the Policy, Plans and Analysis Office of the State Department's Bureau of Political-Military Affairs and formerly served as a senior foreign affairs specialist for the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency and as the U.S. representative to the 1996 and 1998 United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Small Arms and Light Weapons. Dr. Calhoun posted this endorsement of Final Judgmenton amazon.com on March 10, 2003.)
. . . • A famed Hollywood screenwriter and victim of the "witch hunts" of the 1950s . . .
. . . "Michael Collins Piper has laid out the only scenario for the JFK assassination that makes ultimate sense. He's a gutsy guy who hasn't been afraid to confront the truth head on. That's what America is all about. Final Judgment is a masterpiece that would make a great film—but it's not likely one that will ever be made."
. . . (One of the movie industry's most prolific screenwriters, the colorful Bill Norton was described by The Sunday World of London (on April 9, 2000) as "a leading Hollywood movie figure" and "a dedicated socialist and a man with strong religious beliefs who had helped various left-wing causes." In the late 1940s and early 1950s Norton was a hostile witness during the infamous anti-communist "witchhunts" of the House Un-American Activities Committee.)

. . . • A respected veteran American author, journalist and foundation official . . .
. . ."I think you've pinned the tail on the donkey. In my estimation, Final Judgment ranks as the most important book of the 20th century."
. . .(Gill—who died just as this edition of Final Judgment was going to press—was the author of such books as Trade Wars Against America, The Ordeal of Otto Otepka, Suite 3505: The Story of the Draft Goldwater Movement, and Why Reagan Won. A journalist with United Press International and the Pittsburgh Press, Gill also wrote for Life, Fortune, the Saturday Evening Post, Reader's Digest and National Geographic. He also served as executive director of the prestigious Allegheny Foundation and was a well-known Washington representative for the domestic steel industry.
. . . • A former top-ranking Pentagon official . . .
. . .Here's what Colonel Donn De Grand Pre has written in his own book, Barbarians Inside the Gates, citing Final Judgment, which Grand Pre describes as "brilliant"...
. . . "Several high-level military officers believed that the killing of JFK was in fact a coup d'etat carried out by elements of the CIA working with the Israeli Mossad. Kennedy was attempting to halt the development of nuclear weapons by the Israelis, while simultaneously planning to disband the CIA and disengage our military troops from the Indo-China area. (Read Final Judgmentby Michael Collins Piper for more details.)"
(A veteran of World War II and Korea, Grand Pre served as Deputy Chief of the International Division/Office of the Chief of Research and Development at the Pentagon. In 1967 Grand Pre was named as Director for Ground Weapons Systems in the newly-created office of International Logistics Negotiations, responsible for negotiating sales contracts with heads of foreign nations for military weapons systems. On Sept. 30, 1979, The Washington Post Magazine wrote about Grand Pre, citing his expertise: "If you had been a Middle Eastern ruler in the 1970s in search of American weapons systems, you would have called Donn de Grand Pre, Pentagon arms peddler.")

. .• One of America's most hard-driving young independent investigative reporters . . .
. . .Shortly before his strange death in Phoenix, Arizona on June 16, 2003, journalist Brian Downing Quig wrote Michael Collins Piper and said:
. . . "A very important person gave me your book. So I started to read what I would not have purchased at a dollar book sale. I was hostile to the thesis stated on your cover! But I looked at the photos and then read every word. I am now convinced that you have seen and now help others see the largest feature of the JFK assassination that has been missed by all up to this period. I think that Final Judgment delivers all that you promise."
. . .(Quig was best known for his inquiries into the death of reporter Don Bolles and later for his work on the Charles Keating scandal.)
. . .And here's what famed American populist historian Eustace Mullins says about FINAL JUDGMENT . . .
. . "Only once in a decade does a book appear which immediately becomes a 'must read' for all concerned patriots. Final Judgment is such a book. Final Judgment is a 'must' book because it raises and answers so many questions which we need to know about.
. . ."You need to know everything in this book if you are to understand the subversive forces which are destroying our nation.
. . ."Final Judgment is ammunition for the coming war of liberation for America. Victory is not possible without information, and this book has given us the information we need.
. . ."You will wait a long time, if ever, before you see such a gargantuan assembly of vital information as you'll find in this book."
. . .FINAL JUDGMENT—the one book that—if read by enough people—will turn American politics upside down.
