America's entanglement with Israel

Hollywood’s Filthy Lucre: Arnon Milchan’s Arming of Apartheid South Africa

leave a comment »

An excerpt from the forthcoming biography of Hollywood producer and Israeli secret agent Arnon Milchan reveals the dubious source of funding for movies like Oliver Stone’s JFK (which perhaps not coincidentally overlooks the Israeli missing link in the president’s assassination):

Every imaginable weapons system needed by South Africa that could not be purchased directly from Israel was purchased on the international market, and instead of ending up in Israel as indicated on the final destination documentation, was diverted to South Africa. As with Israeli procurements, Milchan’s company quickly became the largest defense procurer for the South African government. But unlike his procurements for Israel, his commissions on his South African deals were pocketed by him and quickly became the largest source of his wealth — which would ultimately be parlayed into Hollywood blockbusters.
