How “Get Gadhafi” Began

October 22, 2011

In 1971 while I was doing my show on WMCA, I was invited by the Israeli government to visit that small beleaguered nation. No one knows this, but that invitation came at the suggestion of Yitzhak Rabin. I had interviewed Rabin in Los Angeles in 1968, shortly after his victory over the Egyptian army in the Sinai during the Six-Day War in June of 1967. General Rabin had been threatened by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists at the instigation of Yasser Arafat and other enemies of Israel. Rabin and my producer had made arrangements for me to interview Rabin in his hotel room on the tenth floor of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where he was staying. This was all very hush hush.

They didn’t want Rabin to come to my studio only a few blocks away. The station didn’t think it would be wise to let General Rabin’s presence be identified for good reason. So, I proceeded quietly up to the tenth floor with my small, portable tape recorder. I looked at the room number just to make sure I was not knocking on the wrong door. I found myself being somewhat nervous. Perhaps I had been watching too many episodes of Mission Impossible which was a very popular television program starring Peter Graves. At any rate, after I knocked on the door I heard a voice on the other side ask, “Who is it?” I answered as directed, “Bob Grant, and I am alone.” Those words were the very words I was instructed to use. If I deviated, Rabin was not supposed to open the door. I know this all sounds somewhat ridiculous now, but at the time it was necessary to be careful. Rabin opened the door and took my raincoat and offered me a drink. I was looking around for some people who were with the hero of the Sinai campaign. But, he was all alone. I thanked him for the drink, but told him I didn&38217;t drink. He smiled and asked me to sit down and I could see he was eager to get the interview completed. After less than a half an hour, we both felt it was time to wrap it up. I thanked him and he thanked me. He told me when I should come to Israel to please come to his office.

As a matter of fact, I did meet Rabin again in Israel where he was holding a press conference and he did remember me. It was during that visit that I met a military aide to Rabin. He is the man who told me over lunch that Moammar Gadhafi was behind the attack on the Israeli compound at the Olympics which were held in Munich, Germany. He also told me that Gadhafi was the bankroller for all terrorist activities. It was upon my return to New York when I resumed my radio show that I closed for the first time with the words: “Get Gadhafi!”

I am sharing this with you today because I have never received more mail than I have these past two days. So many people remember the first time they heard me implore, “Get Gadhafi!” Well, we finally did! Thank you . . . all of you. Straight ahead! Now . . . get Obama out of the White House in November of 2012 by voting him out.

Straight Ahead!
