I was proud to call Barry a personal friend, He visited me in Omaha, and he celebrated with Miriam and me at our wedding.
Barry was the author of many books, including his most famous work Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin which is considered by many to be the definitive book on the Rabin assassination conspiracy theory. He was the Jewish Mark Lane (author of Plausible Denial: Was the CIA involved in the Assasination of JFK)
Whether you agree or disagree with his theories, he was thorough, passionate, sincere, and compelling.
His work was his life, he was absolutely committed to the search for truth and justice, and he had a great love for the Jewish people.
I was hesitant to post this, as he was a controversial figure. This is NOT an endorsement of his views. Those who only know him from his work should know that behind the views and theories was a human being. He sincerely believed in what he wrote, and he was tortured by seeing what he believed to be injustices perpetrated by the powerful against the helpless. He strove to be a voice for the voiceless; and he truly believed that by doing so he was putting his life in danger, yet he did it none the less.
Barry, rest in peace. You are now in the world of truth, which is where you always wanted to be
