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. International in its scope, it was masterminded by the world’s most resourceful confidence artists, and backed by limitless amounts of cash and propaganda vehicles to carry out a program unequalled not only for its audacity but also for the brilliance of its planning.

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