CHAPTER 1. TERRORIST SCAM: THE GREAT GOLD HEIST by Eustace Mullins 6/25/97. Studies of the criminal mind prove that a constant determinant in criminal operations is the desire for notoriety, the urge to make “the biggest score in the history of crime”. An accompanying desire is the resolve to set a record which no one else will ever be able to equal, a matter of distinction which will endure in the record books. The extortion plot against the government of Switzerland seems certain to make its mark as the most ambitious scam in the history of crime.

The U.S. negotiator was not someone who could be called insensitive to the Jewish aspects of this dispute. He was Seymour J.
