Why is Israel so afraid of possible peace? ~ link ~
One Nauruan politician who was tired of his country being used by gangsters, Americans, Israelis, and other ne-er-do-wells was President Bernard Dowiyogo.
Dowiyogo tried to expel the Russian-Israeli Mafia from his country. The mobsters had used the nation's lax tax and banking laws to set up shop to launder ill-gotten gains from illegal activities, including drug and weapons smuggling, online gambling, online child pornography, and tax evasion. Dowiyogo, who was 57, traveled to Washington in early 2003 to discuss with Bush administration officials the closing down of the Russian-Israeli Mafia financial pipeline that ran through his small island nation.
Dowiyogo signed a secret agreement concerning money laundering in Washington on February 27. On March 9, Dowiyogo collapsed after having dinner in Washington. After the president collapsed, he was rushed to George Washington Hospital and died after 11 hours of heart surgery failed to revive him. Sources close to Dowiyogo claimed the president was given a heart attack-inducing drug with the knowledge of his six-member U.S. Secret Service protective detail.
