GREG PALAST markets himself as an “investigative journalist” but he always misses the Israeli elephant in the room.  Could it be because one of his relatives was a “founding father” of Israel’s intelligence agency – the Mossad?

Palast is notorious for ignoring the most obvious evidence of Israeli involvement in 9-11 – or the war in Iraq. He even went so far to say that there is no evidence of controlled demolition or explosives at the World Trade Center. Could his relationship to Israeli intelligence be the real reason he fails to see the obvious in these huge crimes? Palast refused to answer my questions about his relationship to the former deputy director of the Mossad – but the public deserves an explanation.

Palast rudely accused Dr. Steven E. Jones of being an “utter fraud” on INN with Lenny Charles, while he is related to the “founding father” of the Mossad, David Kimche.  Why would a person who is related to the Mossad fail to see the evidence of explosive demolitions at the World Trade Center on 9-11?  Could it be that Greg Palast is a disinformation agent working for the Mossad?

GERI PALAST – Greg’s older sister is an active Zionist agent working for the state of Israel. Geri is the managing director of the Israel Action Network, “a strategic initiative of The Jewish Federations of North America.” She is responsible for the operations of the IAN and works to promote the image of the state of Israel.

DAVID KIMCHE, the British-born Israeli spymaster and deputy director of the Mossad, was the son of Sara Palast, Greg Palast’s great-aunt or a cousin to his grandfather, Nathan (a.k.a. Norman) Palast.

Sara Palast Kimche with her first five children (ca 1917).  David, born in 1928, was her last child.
Greg Palast is an American journalist who rudely accused Professor Steven E. Jones, the scientist who discovered nano-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center of being “a complete fruitcake, and a complete, utter fraud” on INN with Lenny Charles in 2007.
I had written an article about Greg Palast in August 2007 and revealed his Zionist roots from Poland and Chicago.  Today, I looked a bit more into the Palast family history and found that Greg Palast is related to David Kimche, the late Israeli spymaster and deputy director of the Mossad.

When Kimche died in March 2010, his obituary in Ha’aretz read:
Kimche joined the Mossad spy agency in the early 1950s, and was in essence one of the organization’s founding fathers, among those who designed its doctrine and modus operandi. He was involved in just about every aspect of the Mossad over the course of his service, eventually reaching the position of deputy head of Mossad.
The fact that Palast is related to one of the founding fathers of Israeli intelligence might explain his refusal to see the obvious Israeli connections to 9-11, electronic vote fraud, and other mega-crimes. Is Palast working for the Mossad?
To get Palast’s side of the story I looked him up in the White Pages and called his number.  A woman named Leni [von Eckardt] answered the phone.  I told her I was working on an article about the relationship between Greg Palast and David Kimche, the famous chief of the Mossad.  Leni was quick to say that they are related.  She gave me Greg Palast’s mobile number so I called him to ask about the details.  He refused to answer any questions about his family relationship to David Kimche and pretended to be offended that I was asking such questions.

Palast’s girlfriend Leni von Eckardt told me that he is related to David Kimche.

The relationship between Greg Palast and David Kimche is actually quite close and also explains Palast’s close connection to Britain and the Zionist establishment of London.  David Kimche was born in London on February 14, 1928.  Kimche’s mother was Polish-born Sara Palast, who married Moses Kimche from Grodno (then Poland).  Sara was the daughter of Theodore Palast and Sonia Celmaister, and had three siblings:  Nathan, Dora, and Morris.
Sara’s brother Morris (a.k.a. Moritz or Maurice, born in Poland, 1897) came to Chicago and listed Norman Palast of 1056 Oakley Blvd. as his nearest relative when he registered for World War I.  Norman Palast is Greg Palast’s paternal grandfather, i.e. the father of his father, Gilbert Leon Palast.  The following documents indicate that Greg Palast has a rather close family relationship to the former deputy director of the Mossad. The fact that Palast is related to the former deputy director of the Mossad is certainly a relationship that really needs to be explained – by Greg Palast.

Greg Palast’s father was born to Norman and Anna Palast in Chicago, in 1921.

Greg Palast’s grandfather Norman (a.k.a. Nathan) Palast was born in Poland on January 26, 1888.

Norman Palast lived at 1056 N. Oakley in Chicago in 1917, when he registered for the war.

Maurice Palast listed Nate Palast of 1056 N. Oakley Blvd. as his nearest relative.

Another Nathan Palast also lived at 1056 N. Oakley, which may be a brother or cousin of Norman (Nathan) Palast.

When Maurice Palast became a citizen in 1927 he lived a few doors away from Greg’s grandfather.

Morris (a.k.a. Moritz, Maurice) Palast

Maurice Palast married Gertrud Newman of Cleveland in 1926.  He is buried in Cleveland.
