THE AUTHOR THE ISRAELI
LOVES TO HATE . . .
. . .There's no doubt about it—Michael Collins Piper, the author of Final Judgment, is one of the Israeli lobby's primary targets today. Repeatedly and bitterly attacked by propagandists for Israel, Piper is undaunted, despite the fact his life was publicly threatened by Irv Rubin, violent leader of the terrorist Jewish Defense League. Once, after discovering an illicit wiretap on his home telephone, Piper noted wryly, 'The Vatican didn't put it there."
. . .In the style of his combative, colorful great-great-grandfather, famed bridge builder "Colonel" John Piper—surrogate father and early business partner of industrial giant Andrew Carnegie—the outspoken author relishes any opportunity to confront his many critics head-on, although generally they refuse to debate him. Like his ancestor, Michael Collins Piper is also a bridge builder in his own way. . .
. . .In recent years, he has lectured across the globe in places as diverse as Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates; Moscow, Russia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Tokyo, Japan and across Canada. Police-state-minded advocates of war and imperialism have been disturbed at Piper's energetic efforts to forge links of common understanding among peoples of all creeds and colors. Once described as "The American Voltaire"—recalling the Enlightenment crusader against bigotry and tyranny—Michael Collins Piper is truly the author the Israeli lobby loves to hate . .
. . .Widely known as a lover of dogs, cats and all animals and an unapologetic old-style American progressive in the LaFollette-Wheeler tradition, Piper considers the labels of "liberal" and "conservative" archaic, artificial and divisive, manipulative media buzzwords designed to suppress popular dissent and free inquiry. Once offered a lucrative assignment in a covert intelligence operation in Africa, Piper turned it down, preferring his independence—a position in keeping with his ethnic heritage: another of Piper's great-great-grandfathers was a full-blooded American Indian.
. . .Twenty years before the major media discovered the "neo-conservative" cabal that pushed America into the Iraq war, Piper was reporting on their intrigues. In 2004, in The High Priests of War, he assembled a fascinating overview of their insidious record, the first book ever published on the subject. In his provocative 2005 work, The New Jerusalem, Piper confronted the controversial issue of Zionist power in America, a detailed exposition unlike any ever assembled by any modern author. Piper's authoritative lecture to the Zayed Centre, the Arab League think tank, on the topic of American media bias, has been distributed worldwide.
. . .Sourcing much of his work from his own massive library of some 10,000 volumes, Piper writes for American Free Press, the Washington-based national weekly, and in the historical journal, The Barnes Review. One media critic hailed Piper as one of the top 25 best writers on the Internet today.
. . .Throughout his career, Piper led the way on several major stories. In 1987, he was the first to expose the Justice Department frame-up of Pennsylvania State Treasurer Budd Dwyer that led to Dwyer's shocking public suicide. Piper was also the first to expose San Francisco-based Roy Bullock as an operative for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a conduit for Israel's Mossad, involved in illegal spying on American citizens, seven years before The New York Times acknowledged Bullock's ADL link. The ADL will never forgive Piper for his pivotal front-line role in unmasking Bullock.
. . .Piper was the only journalist to assert—based on hard evidence—that the Oklahoma bombing was a Mossad "false flag" operation designed to implicate Saddam Hussein—a scheme derailed by U.S. investigators who rejected Israel's machinations, opting for a "lone nut" cover-up. Today, Piper's pioneering work on Israeli links to the 9-11 tragedy is echoed by truth seekers and, predictably, damned by defenders of Israel for its accuracy.
