Background info concerning Barry &
Chamish is Israel's most controversial writer. In
1998, he claimed in his best-selling book, Who Murdered
Yitzhak Rabin, that the prime minister was murdered
in a coup from within his own party. Within a several years,
every major newspaper poll had proved the majority of
Israelis support Chamish. The Israeli government's answer
was to smear Chamish with ugly web sites, rumors and
violent accidents. Tired of the harassment, and fearing
for his life, Barry Chamish moved to the U.S.A. for
and offers his lectures to any congregations
Barry believes, a second holocaust is being engineered in Israel at this
that if they get their way,
soon Israel will cease to exist as we know it; it will become a country
without borders, and Jerusalem will become a multinational city, run by a team that includes the
in Winnipeg, Canada, 1952.
Education - University of Manitoba, 1974,
MA Hebrew University of Jerusalem 1979.
Armed Service - IDF Anti-Aircraft Missile Shooter. Participant in 1982 War
After completing University and the army in 1981, Barry founded a
small press service which provided reliable features for a variety of
magazines. Amongst the more glorious publications were The Hollywood
Reporter, Screen International and Billboard. Included on the outskirts of
the business were long reports in The Atlantic, The New Republic, Reason
and New York Newsday.
of his early fame came from writing about the UFO phenomenon.
From 1987-99, Israel saw a barrage of unexplained aerial
phenomena, all highly publicized by the Hebrew media.
Using ethical journalistic standards, he documented
the events and received worldwide recognition for his
efforts. Four episodes of the NBC-TV program Sightings
were dedicated to his discoveries, and in 1999, Fox-TV
devoted a full half hour of prime time to his work.
He's proud of this period of his career but the phenomena
stopped and he hasn't written a word on the subject
since the turn of the century.
1990 Barry's new book changed his outlook. Called, The
Fall Of Israel, and published by Canongate Books
of Edinburgh, the author challenged the Israeli bureaucracy's
foothold on corruption. The book received the lead review
in the Economist and was followed by major reviews
throughout the world. Some reviews included Sunday
Telegraph, London Times, Yediot Ahronot,
Jerusalem Post, Haaretz etc.
By the mid-1990s, Barry's expose of Oslo in the National Review (March
14, 1994) led to another book published by Hearthstone Publishing of
Oklahoma City. It led to Barry's first speaking tour, that of 6 World
Affairs Congresses from Palm Springs to Portland, Maine.
The height of Barry's career was the appearance of his book Who Murdered
Yitzhak Rabin in 6 languages in Israel. The book
made number 3 on Yediot's best-selling list and has
profoundly influenced Israel's view of the assassination.
Every poll in the past several years has shown a majority
of Israelis no longer believe Amir was Rabin's murderer,
or that he acted alone.
Other books followed the book on Rabin, aimed largely at preventing the so-called
"disengagement." Barry's work was the subject of half of Israeli
newspaper publications. But in 2005 the "disengagement" went through -- and
Barry had suffered a mild stroke and a death-defying car crash. His
family agreed, he had to remove himself from Israel in order to survive.
Chamish recently spent a number of months back home, living in Van Couver, British Columbia. He is
currently moving on and not yet settled.
Barry's life work at this time is to let the world -- Christians,
Jews, Moslems, and anyone who will listen -- know why
Israel's government has chosen to divide the country
and leave it ultimately, defenseless against rockets,
terror and war, and why both sides of the conflict are
suffering needless casualties while speaking of a "peace"
that is no peace.
is available for lectures anywhere, to any group. He recently published two new books, "Bye Bye, Gaza" and
"The Kennedys," and is about to write another.
In his spare time, Barry loves to relax by a quiet stream, lake or pond -- and fish. He says
it lets him clear his head, and just relax and enjoy the beauty around him, especially after
all the shell shock everyone in Israel is experiencing these days. It appears he has
been quite successful at his fishing lately.
