Denunciation of Steven Weinberg's Scientific Gangsterism

This weekend, I located by accident in the "Past history" link of the "Discussions" of the Wikipedia article on Steven Weinberg the following denunciation as a true scientific gangster, which denunciation is reproduced verbatim below for open debate since the same debate had been suppressed at Wikipedia by Weinberg's friends posturing as editors. I take the opportunity for requesting a Senatorial Investigation on the alleged wrongdoings by Weinberg and his gang because, in my view, he has the primary responsibility for the decay of U. S. science caused by the systematic suppression of anys cientific renewal in the evident interest of gang's members. Unlike the fake freedom of Wikipedia, this forum is indeed open to all interested participants, whether in favor or against Weinberg's action. To appear in this page, colleagues are requested to send me an email with a clear statement authorizing the uploading".

Some of the scientific gangerisms perpoetrated by the Jewish physicist
Steven Weinberg

Copy of translation in Arabic circulating in the East

I am a Jewish physicist in the Boston Area (although not known as such by my colleagues). I want to report in these Discussions a growing and growing anti-Semitism in our physics community on various allegations, the most vociferous being the way Steven Weinberg has persecuted for some thirty years and continues to persecute the Italian-American scientist R. M. Santilli (see the Wikipedia article and http://www.santilli-foundation**org/). Let's stop kidding ourselves. My definition of "anti-Semitism" is that of actions damaging Jewish people. On one side it would be hypocritical denying that Steven Weinberg is a Jew. On the other side, readers should decide on their own whether or not his actions against Santilli and his associates are anti-Semitic, such as:

1. As reviewed and documented in detail by Santilli in Il Grande Grido (see**htm, particularly the supporting editorial of "The Harvard Crimson" available there), Weinberg opposed the decision by the DOE for Santilli to initiate, specifically at the Lyman Laboratory of Harvard University, studies on the limitations of special relativity and quantum mechanics in interior problems (hadrons, nuclei and stars). Note that DOE interest was due to evident implications for expected new energies. By contrast, Weinberg kept Santilli and his family (with two children in tender age) without salary for one full year despite the availability of grant ER-78-S-02-47420.A000. It was only one year later that Weinberg finally allowed Santilli to move to Harvard's Mathematics Department and activate his grant thanks to the gracious help by Shlomo Sternberg (grants AS02-78ER04742, DE-ACO2-80ER10651). The point we should not kid ourselves is the documentation establishing Weinberg's opposition to an important research project of our Administration at the time.

2. The 1315 documentations of Il Grande Grido also establish that Weinberg's continued harassing Santilli's research at Harvard's Department of Mathematics, with insistent claims of "no physical value" etc. to such an extent that the Mathematics Department was forced to terminate the administration of the Steinberg-Santilli grant in summer 1981. Despite that, the DOE continued the support of Santilli's research with three additional grants number DE-ACO2-80ER-10651.A001; DE-ACO2-80ER10651.A002 and DE-ACO2-80ER10651.A002.A1 under the administration of the Institute for Basic Research founded by Santilli for that purpose (http://www.i-b-r**org/).

3. It is equally documented in Il Grande Grido that Weinberg continued his opposition to a formal decisions by our government after Santilli left Harvard. Thanks to help by his Jewish friends in the various colleagues of the Boston Area, Weinberg succeeded in prohibiting the listing in the "Boston Area Physics Calendar" of seminars by distinguished visitors of the IBR presenting research under formal DOE support by initiating¸ this way the first world wide wave of anti-Semitism in the case. Due to his inability to stop Santilli, Weinberg then attacked his DOE grant. In fact, with the help of Jewish friends at the DOE, Weinberg had Santilli's grant terminated in 1983, as per statement under eyewitnesses by David Peaslee, then a DOE officer.

4. In the meantime, Santilli's research had attracted world attention, including the participation in the research by distinguished Jewish physicists (has anybody read the supporting comments by the British philosopher Karl Popper on Santilli's research in his 1981 book?). So, Weinberg contacted individually Santilli's associates and forced them to leave the field of research. As an example among several, the Jewish physicists Andres Kalnay from Argentina went in tears to see Santilli at the IBR in 1982 and stated in the presence of eyewitnesses "I had been forced to terminate my research with you [Santilli] because of pressures from Steven Weinberg." Kalnay, who just came back from a lecture at CERN, also stated that Weinberg and his friends will prohibit all considerations at CERN of Santilli's research, as it is the case to this day. This case alone has caused a huge fuzz with nowadays open criticisms of "organized scientific crime" at CERN, including threats of governmental inquiries in Europe on the dubious use of huge public funds due to serious doubts on claimed experimental results at CERN (that Santilli and other qualified physicists call "experimental beliefs") because achieved by using reversible scattering theories for clearly irreversible high energy scatterings, in which case numerical deviations each already been indicated in refereed journals. One can image the expected scandal at CERN whose origination is clearly due to Weinberg.

5. Then, Weinberg moved to a systematic campaign in preventing Santilli from publishing his research in orthodox journals. Soon following the publication of Santilli last paper at Phys. Rev D (Rev. D Vol. 22, 892?907, l980), the late Larry Biedenharn stated under eyewitnesses during one a visit at the IBR "Ruggero, you should know that Weinberg and his friends at Phys. Rev. will reject hereon all your papers." And so it was. I understand there is a a detailed concentration in the hands of unfriendly people in Europe of some 200 rejections by APS journals without credible technical arguments on papers authored by Santilli and others. A particular source of anti-Semitism reported to me is that rejections have been extended to submissions merely quoting Santilli.

6. Following the publication of his important paper at Il Nuovo Cimento of 1983 on the isotopies of special relativity (**pdf), the president of the Societa Italiana Fisica, Renato Angelo Ricci stated in his written rejections to Santilli "Your papers disapproved by Prof. Weinberg, your former colleague at Harvard". This interference yielded an additional documentation of hundred of rejections by SFI during the following 20 years, all in unfriendly hands in Europe.

7. A similar situation occurred at the Journals of the Institute of Physics in England. Following the publication of his last paper at the JPG (**pdf), IOP journals rejected all papers by Santilli and his associates also without serious technical objections, a posture that lasts to this day. An investigation conducted by concerned British scientists on such an important subject (never forget the expectation of new clean energies!) has indicated that "the rejections originated from Jewish physicists at Harvard and their Jewish friends at the IOP." I am told of other documented rejections, all following publications that somewhat escaped Weinberg control, such as those at the Journal of the Moscow Physical Society where rejections for additional publications was issued by Jewish physicists in Russia following Santilli's achievement in 1993 at the JMPS of the remarkable universal "symmetry" of all Riemannian line elements (**pdf"). Anti0Semitism is then triggered by the evidence that Jewish editors would never have treated like that one of ours after having achieved such milestone in physics ..... Very damaging for us have been rejections of Santilli's scholar papers by Jewish editors of the Journal of Modern Physics on the claim that "Santilli is anti-Semitic". After objecting that such claim is preposterous and in any case inappropriate for a technical review, the scientist Ahluwalia was terminated as JMP editor.

8. In 1992, Santilli was prohibited participating in the Seventh Workshop on Hadronic Mechanics (a discipline he initiated and remained the primary author) held at the University of Iowa in Cedar Falls. The late mathematician H. C. Myung stated in a letter prior to leaving the USA and returning to Korea "the prohibition for Prof. Santilli to attend a meeting on his own discipline was due to Steven Weinberg and his local Jewish friends." In the late 19880s, Santilli was also prohibited from attending a workshop at FERMILAB organized under public financial support by Jewish physicists there, and suffered similar other prohibitions.

9. We now come to the latest action that is triggering a world wide wave of anti-Semitism, the dubbing by Wikipedia in Santilli's article of his research as being "fringe science", the dubbing of his prestigious prizes as "propaganda," the excessively visible adulteration of evidence always in the negative, etc. Whether true or false, everybody believes Weinberg is responsible for this injustice with the help of the Jewish editor of Santilli's article, the mathematician Arthur Rubin. To have an idea of the damage we have suffered, readers should know that the dubbing of "fringe science" has offended all participants of the recent Nepal Conference (**np/iclatip/) dealing in Santilli's lie-admissible irreversible covering of Einstein's theories, an evident pre-requisite for serious studies of energy releasing processes. All complaints filed in the Discussions of Santilli's article proved to be futile in face of an incredible illusion of opposing Santilli research while in reality solely creating world wide anti-Semitism. It is dead wrong to dub "fringe science" the since initiated under DOE support that has now provided indeed a new fuel allowing American (and Israel....) to reach fuel independent (www.magnegas**com). But then, we have to brace for damage considered just by many.

Steven Weinberg and Co, what are you doing? Have you gone banana? These actions are in violation of our Torah, thus being anti-Semitic in my view. Stop kidding yourself: you have got no advantage out of all this worth indicating. Instead, you have caused a wave of anti-Semitism. Most damaging to us is the fact that you have chased out important Jewish scientist out of Santilli's research and we have no major representative in this inevitable post-Einstein era.

Further, I have to lament the following damaging circumstances: A) In the event Santilli had been a Jew, Weinberg and his friends would have provided total support, an aspect that, alone, is causing huge anti-Semitism;B) There is documentation in Italy that Santilli's family saved lives of Jews during WWII (in particular, they saved from the Nazis the Jewish banker Bologna and others). But then, anti-Semitism must be expected by comparing the Santillis risking their lives to save Jews from the Nazis, and the way Jewish physicists treated Santilli when he was in the Boston Area. C) Almost all, Jewish physicists, world wide,. have followed Weinberg's evil lead, thus multiplying what non-Jews consider "just anti-Semitism." D) Weinberg has no technical criticism of Santilli's research, thus fueling, again, anti-Semitism. E) It is now widely accepted that Santilli is right in expecting special relativity being inapplicable for interior problems because you cannot put inertial reference frames inside matter; hadrons, nuclei and stars have n o nuclei thus implying an evident violation of the Poincare' symmetry and special relativity; and other reasons (see the**org). Dubbing studies as "fringe science" provides no benefit whatsoever and solely flairs up anti-Semitism because Santilli's studies are now known the world over, and have already produced new clean energies and fuels (see the independent general review monograph**pdf). In short, rather than being stopped, Santilli successes have caused a serious shadow on Weinberg's conduct as a Jew as well as on our science that will likely remain in history.

Ironically, Santilli's studies deal with isotopies, a mechanism he invented to preserve original axioms. Rather then maintaining Einstein's axioms under conditions we know they are inapplicable, thus abusing Einstein's name as done by a number of Jewish physicists, Santilli truly honors Einstein by preserving his axioms and merely providing broader realizations for interior dynamical condition s. But then, how could we expect more from a Gentile? GodRah.

Before judging whether or not Weinberg is anti-Semitic and, if so, to what extent, you should know that Weinberg is called the "Jewish Satan" by a number of Arab physicists because he treated them in the same manner he used for Santilli. Additionally, you should ponder on the consequences for our people in the event open denunciations mandated by intolerable excesses reached then of millions of Arabs in the moment of their renaissance.

My suggestion? Jewish physicists at large should stop all this trash and behave like scientist, thus having Santilli INVITED by CERN, FERMILAB etc, to debate scientific divergences.



Even though the depicted content of the above posting appears to me as being essentially true and documented, and even though I have been myself the victim of profiling (allegedly commissioned by Wikipedia figures and, in any case, used by Wikipedia to stubbornly dub my research as "fringe science" despite complaints from numerous distinguished scholars), I am strongly against the above ethnic profile of Steven Weinberg because he is not representative of the Jewish physics community despite his undeniable sinister political clout at the Nobel Foundation, CERN, FERMILAB and similar settings. In fact, Jewish physicists have provided some of the strongest support for my studies in surpassing Einstein's theories for interior problems (only), such as: high ranking Jewish physicists in the U.S.A. (I am not at liberty to identify at this time) have encouraged and supported me for years; the Jewish physicist Michele Sacerdote in Italy has provided invaluable scientific assistance for years with in depth reviews of various papers and monographs as well as invaluable critical comments; the Jewish physicist Andres Kalnay from Argentina has been source of unbounded inspiration on both human and scientific grounds; and I have received similar backing from various other Jewish physicists in Scandinavia, Germany, France, Austria, Russia, Spain and other countries. Additionally, the International Association of Relativistic Dynamics (IARD), organized and operated by Jewish physicists in Israel, has invited me several times to present research beyond Einstein, and the IARD Director, Larry Horwitz from the University of Tel-Aviv, has provided very generous and simply unforgettable help with detailed reviews, both technically and linguistically, of a number of my papers. As a further evdience of the sincere scientific support I have received from the Jewish physics community, for which I have unbounded appreciation and gratitude, I have to recall the following episode. As known, the Eight N. Grossmann Meeting in Gravitation was held in Jerusalem in 1996, The local organizers, headed by T. Piran from Jerusalem, first accepted a paper of mine on a grand unification based on surpassing Einstein gravitation into a form admitting of a universal "symmetry" isomorphic to that of electroweak interactsions. Unfortunately, at the last moment I was forced to cancel my trip to Jerusalem for various reasons. Nevertheless, the organizers had the transparencies of my lecture presented by the chairman of my session, R. Hehl from germany, and then they published the article in the proceedings [1] despite my absence ! This episode is so beautiful that I always review it whenever delivering talks in the subject.

Ruggero Maria Santilli
Acting pro se


In the event the United States of America is still a democracy not entirely controlled by Jewish interests, I urge the Ethics Committee of the U. S. Senate to conduct an in depth investigation of the excessive misconducts perpetrated by Mr. Steven Weinberg for over thirty years, not only against Prof. Santilli, but also against qualified Arab physicists and others. It should be indicated that, immediately following the appearance in 1984 of Prof. Santilli's Il Grande Grido and its positive review in 1985 by The Harvard Crimson, a Senator from California (I do not remember his name at the moment but it can be traced from the files) attempted to organize a Senatorial Investigation of the documented horrendous misconducts all perpetrated under public financial support, although Jewish senators succeeded in flooring the proposal, thus providing Mr. Weinberg and his "gang" guaranteed impunity for further wrongdoings that indeed were perpetrated as documented in the above posting. The fanatic conduct of these Jewish senators in support of wrongdoings by fellow Jews turned out to be self-damaging precisely in the spirit of the posting because misconducts that were containable in 1985 if publicly investigated have dilated into an indelible shadow now set in history that will damage the image of Jewish physicists for generations to come, thus including the innocent.

Dear Muslim Colleagues,

I would like to send you the url below I have just discovered on the ongoing scientific gangsterism of which Steven Weinberg is its leader worldwide.

Please check this link and you may send it to Muslim scientists. It seems that we are really suffering from worldwide scientific opposition and gangstrism. Please help our scientific community against this unjust oppression.

Steven Weinberg Scientific Gangsterism


During our periodical checks of the Wikipedia page on Prof. Santilli I spotted the follopwing posting that is reproduced below verbatim. Richard Cox.

Worries for the fuzz on Santilli's "fringe" science and "propaganda" prizes

I am concerned for the retaliation going on for the dubbing of R. M. Santilli's research as "fringe" science and his prizes as "propaganda." Allegedly, this fuzz was originated by Steven Weinberg with his friends Arthur Rubin and other editors of Wikipedia's article on Santilli. The retaliation is orchestrated by Santilli's supporters around the world, now too numerous to silence. I have just received a message from one of ours in the Baghdad intelligence telling me that Weinberg-Wikipedia profile (www||dot||||dot||htm) is being circulated among Arab scientists, including Eastern and Western countries. I am told mirror sites are being built in in Arabic, and similar posts are appearing in Facebook etc. My senator has apparently received a request to solicit a senate hearing on the background of this fuzz and I assume other senators may have received the same. I checked things out, and it is true the Santillis saved Jews from the Nazis during WWII, the little boy R. M. Santilli being the food carrier in the hideout. Comparing this with Weinberg's treatment of the adult Santilli and his children, triggers "just anti-Semitism" in their view. Similarly, it is true that Santilli has worked for years with Pinchas Mandell of Tel-Aviv, President of Magnegas Israel, to set up grounds for a future fuel independence of Israel from Arab petroleum, their failure to date being mostly due to the profits fellow Israelis are making with Arab fuels, as Mandell may confirm. But then Rubin's dubbing as "fringe" the science for such an important fuel independence by Israel also triggers "just anti-Semitism" for some or be considered "shameful" by others. In the meantime, Santilli's science is gaining momentum world wide with international conferences, increasing experimental verifications and webctures (see www||dot||world-lecture-series||dot||org). I think we should stop the fuzz of "fringe" science and "propaganda" prizes until our damage is kind of containable. You got no advantage whatever out of this, while causing loss of credibility and anti-Semitism. What are you doing?? You know wrong deeds never pay!! WorriedLad
