Was the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 supposed to be the original trigger for the War on Terror? In fact, there were several Mossad-engineered false flag attacks against the US during the Clinton Administration, and Clinton went to great lengths to avoid being pushed into starting a war in the Middle East, even going so far as covering up apparent Middle Eastern connections (who were really patsies set up by Mossad) in some of the attacks. I make the case that Clinton refused to serve as a stooge for the warmongers, so Georgie (“Dubya”) was brought in to finish the job of launching the WOT following an even more “catastrophic and catalyzing” Zionist false flag event. The patterns that emerge when examining Mossad/Israeli links to major violent and world-changing events during this period are uncanny. Here’s my compendium:

•1992 – George HW Bush is defeated in the election and privately blames his defeat on the Israeli lobby in a 2005 talk at A&M University. Bush’s hard line against Israeli settlements under the Shamir government in 1992 was apparently his primary sin. Was Bush’s refusal to continue Gulf War I and carry out regime change during the 1991 invasion another incidence of betrayal?
Many believe that George H.W. Bush’s defeat in 1992 was the result of Jewish- American opposition [and even more importantly the unmentionable powerful AIPAC lobby and other tentacles of the state of Israel?] fueled by his hard line against Israeli settlements under the Shamir government. American support for the Jewish state has become an issue in many national elections in the United States, and almost all American politicians are sensitive to how their stance on Israel affects their electoral prospects. The Holocaust analogy and its never again obligation make the U.S. commitment to the state of Israel so sensitive that there is a tendency to question the motives of anyone critical of Israel and its policies. “What bothered me most,” recalled former president Ford, “was the claim by some of those leaders [of the American-Jewish community] that inasmuch as I was suggesting the possibility of a reassessment of our policy toward Israel, I must be anti-Israeli or even anti-Semitic.”141 There is an unfortunate tendency to attack in an ad hominem fashion those who argue that the United States should think about its relationship with Israel in terms of American national interests.
“There is no question that one of the most powerful political forces in America,” former president Carter
observed, “exists in the well-organized and often sharply focused efforts of politically active citizens whose unshakable support for the current policies of Israel’s government, whatever they may be, is much more certain than the support of any single group within Israel itself.”
I can tell you from personal experience that, at least in the Congress, the support Israel has in that body is based completely on political fear—fear of defeat by anyone who does not do what Israel wants done. I can also tell you that very few members of Congress—at least when I served there—have any affection for Israel or for its Lobby. What they have is contempt, but it is silenced by fear of being found out exactly how they feel. I’ve heard too many cloakroom conversations in which members of the Senate will voice their bitter feelings about how they’re pushed around by the Lobby to think otherwise. In private one hears the dislike of Israel and the tactics of the Lobby, but not one of them is willing to risk the Lobby’s animosity by making their feelings public.
•February 26 1993 – 1st WTC bombing. The World Trade Center in New York suffered a big blast from a bomb apparently delivered via a Ryder rental Van in the underground parking level, causing large craters in the basement floors of the building. The 1,500 lb (680 kg) “urea nitrate–hydrogen gas enhanced device” was allegedly intended to knock the North Tower (Tower One) into the South Tower (Tower Two), bringing both towers down and killing thousands of people. It failed to do so, but did kill six people and injured 1,042.
Eight years ago a prescient article appeared in The Village Voice, which bears noting in the aftermath of the terror of Sept. 11.
Exclusive To American Free Press
By Michael Collins Piper
Here are the facts about the Mossad connection to the first attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) revealed by investigative reporter Robert I. Friedman in the Aug. 3, 1993 article in The Village Voice, an independent left-wing New York weekly that has occasionally dared to raise criticisms of Israel.
Friedman reported that Ahmad Ajaj, a 27-year-old West Bank Palestinian held in federal custody for conspiring to bomb the World Trade Center, may have been a Mossad mole, according to Israeli intelligence sources.
Ajaj was arrested at Kennedy Airport on Sept. 1, 1992, after he arrived on a Pakistani International flight from Peshawar carrying a forged Swedish passport and bomb-making manuals. He was taken into custody, and subsequently pleaded guilty to entering the country illegally.
Ajaj’s traveling companion was Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, an Iraqi who law enforcement sources say is a “key player” in the World Trade Center bombing.
Although the FBI identified Ajaj as a senior intifada terrorist, with links to Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic fundamentalist organization, Kol Ha’ir, a respected Hebrew-language weekly published in Jerusalem, said Ajaj was never involved in intifada activities or with Hamas or even the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Instead, according to Kol Ha’ir, Ajaj was actually a petty crook arrested in 1988 for counterfeiting U.S. dollars out of East Jerusalem. Ajaj was convicted of counterfeiting and then sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison.
According to Friedman, writing in The Village Voice: “It was during his prison stay that Mossad, Israel’s CIA, apparently recruited him, say Israeli intelligence sources. By the time he was released after having served just one year, he had seemingly undergone a radical transformation.”
Friedman reports that Ajaj had suddenly become a devout Muslim and an outspoken hard-line nationalist. Then, Ajaj was arrested for smuggling weapons into the West Bank, supposedly for El Fatah, a subdivision of the PLO.
But Friedman’s sources in Israeli intelligence say that the arrest and Ajaj’s subsequent deportation were “staged by Mossad to establish his credentials as an intifada activist. Mossad allegedly ‘tasked’ Ajaj to infiltrate radical Palestinian groups operating outside Israel and to report back to Tel Aviv. Israeli intelligence sources say that it is not unusual for Mossad to recruit from the ranks of common criminals.”
After Ajaj’s “deportation” from Israel, he showed up in Pakistan where he turned up in the company of the anti-Soviet mujahedin rebels in Afghanistan.
This in itself could point further toward Ajaj working for the Mossad, for according to Covert Action Information Bulletin (September 1987) the funding and supply lines for the mujahedin was not only the “the second largest covert operation” in the CIA’s history, but it was also, according to former Mossad operative Victor Ostrovsky (writing in The Other Side of Deception) under the direct supervision of the Mossad.
After Ajaj’s ventures with the mujahedin, he popped up in New York and purported to befriend members of a small so-called “radical” clique surrounding Sheikh Abdel-Rahman who was accused of being the mastermind of the World Trade Center bombing.
On Feb. 26, 1993, the day of the first World Trade center bombing, Ajaj was “safe” in federal prison serving a six-month sentence for entering the country on a forged passport. Later, he was indicted for conspiracy in the WTC bombing.
Said Robert Friedman:
If Ajaj was recruited by Mossad, it is not known whether he continued to work for the Israeli spy agency after he was deported. One possibility, of course, is that upon leaving Israel and meeting radical Muslims close to the blind Egyptian sheikh, his loyalties shifted.
Both the telephone number and the apartment were listed (on the rental agreement for the Ryder Truck alleged to have contained the explosives), and indeed, the apartment had been rented by “a woman identified as Josie Hadas” (Ibid.). Her name was flaunted, almost as a signal, “the latest name on the mailbox was Josie Hadas… who moved into the apartment before Christmas” (Los Angeles Times, March 7, 1993).
It was during her occupancy of this apartment that the chemicals and bomb components were supposedly stored there. Salameh, moreover, was being “handled” by mysterious others whose relationship to the crucial evidence would become important.
“The authorities say several associates of Mr. Salameh who may have been involved in the bombing have dropped out of sight. … One of the people being sought for questioning is an unidentified man who accompanied Mr. Salameh on two visits to the rental agency. Another is Josie Hadas, whose name was listed for a telephone at an apartment at 34 Kensington Avenue in Jersey City” (New York Times, March 8, 1993). The name placed on the rental agreement as a reference was Josie Hadas.
Under the heading “Possible Tampering by Agent,” New York Times reporter Joseph B. Treaster writes, “in a bizarre twist that could potentially complicate the prosecution of the bombers …[f]ederal officials were investigating a report that an agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms tampered with some evidence … substituting her name for that of an investigator from another agency. … John O’Brien, a spokesman for the firearms Bureau, acknowledged that one of the bureau’s agents was being questioned. … James M. Fox, the head of the FBI investigation, would not comment on the inquiry about the agent and the evidence”.
Who then was the woman in whose name the telephone and apartment were listed and where the incriminating evidence was “found?” Josie or Guzie Hadas was not unknown. The International Herald Tribune (March 8, 1993) quoted FBI spokesman Joe Valiquette’s familiar response to their reporter’s query about the role of Hadas in the Israeli secret service, Mossad: “Even if it were true, we wouldn’t tell you anyway.”
The London Periodical Impact (March 12, 1993 and April 8, 1993) revealed, in an article titled “Who Bombed the World Trade Center,” that on February 26, the day the bomb exploded, an Israeli intelligence group sent an urgent communiqué over a telephone access computer network about the event. The communiqué was picked up when it was discovered accidentally on a confidential government “information base” known in the Israeli intelligence community as “Matara,” an official source of classified data pertaining to intelligence and security matters.
Three days after the bombing, “Anne,” an Israeli operative of the Shin Bet, Israel’s FBI, was cited by journalists in Israel “boasting of Israeli Intelligence capabilities.” She stated that Israel had advance knowledge of the bombing, confirming the communiqué disclosed on Matara.
The Jerusalem journalist (whose name will be protected here) told Irfan Mirza, the author of the Impact articles, how he had confirmed that “Israeli intelligence knows more about the bombings than they are ever going to disclose at this time.”
Zafar Bangas, editor of Crescent International, an Ontario, Canada-based journal conversant in Islamic politics and one of the most widely read newspapers in the Muslim world, confirmed to this author that Guzie (Josie) Hadas was long-established as a Mossad operative. She had penetrated Islameic circles in New York, as had another intelligence operative, Emad Ali Salem, a colonel in Egyptian intelligence.
•1995 – Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of Israel’s extreme right-wing Likud party founded by Irgun terrorists, and considered to be the original architect of the doctrine of War on Terror publishes his major definitive work “Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorism”
•April 19 1995 – Oklahoma City Terrorist Bombing. The date of the Zionists’ original plan for initiating the War on Terror. Mossad carries out a false flag attack in Oklahoma City to be blamed on Iraq, Iran, and Syria. An Iraqi patsy is groomed who is allegedly an Iraqi agent with allegations of ties to and funding coming from Iran and Syria, who is to be the mastermind that directs “2 lilly white” Americans to carry out the deed. Everything is set-up prior to the bombing, including 2 official warnings from Mossad to the US that an attack is imminent against a federal building in 3 possible cities by Arab terrorists, blah, blah, blah. But something strange happens after the bombing. Apparently the Clinton Administration (or their controlling faction?) decides to not cooperate with the Zionists’ war plans and instead spikes the investigation and hides the “middle-eastern connection” and contains the investigation to homegrown militia patsies, effectively betraying the Zio-fascists. An excellent discussion of the Mossad Connection to the 1995 OKC bombing and the mysterous disappearance of the “middle-eastern connection” is at this WTCD thread
•November 4 1995 – Yitzhak Rabin, the liberal “land for peace” Israeli prime minister, is assassinated. It’s blamed on the ol’ “lone gunman” assassin, to be sure. But the fact that the assassination could not have happened without a “slip-up” by his security is just one of many “coincidences” and contradictions to the official story that points to an inside job. Shimon Peres was appointed as acting Israeli prime minister until Benjamin Netanyahu – the zionazi architect of the War On Terror himself – was elected in 1996.
A Mother’s Defense, by Guela Amir published in JFK Jr’s George Magazine March 1997
As Rabin walked past, the young man drew a pistol, slipped into the crowd of towering security agents, and fired three rounds at the prime minister. Two of them hit Rabin’s exposed back, and one shot wounded his bodyguard. As the shots rang out, someone at the scene shouted, “Blanks! Blanks!” as if to reassure the others that the bullets were not real. But the shots were not blanks. Rabin, mortally wounded, was rushed to nearby Ichilov Hospital. Curiously, as Leah Rabin was whisked away by car to Shin Bet headquarters, one of the agents assured the prime minister’s wife that the gunman had actually used “a toy gun” and that her husband was fine. The reality was that Rabin lay dying in an emergency room.
The gunman was my son Yigal. The shooting seemed to be an open-and-shut case of assassination. An amateur videotape of the event clearly showed Yigal walking up to the prime minister and shooting him. So how could anyone at the scene have thought that Yigal was shooting blanks? Why was another guard so certain that the gun wasn’t real? And how is it that minutes after the shooting, even before the details of the incident were broadcast, Israeli TV received a phone call from a man who claimed to represent a right-wing Jewish organization. He confidently declared, “This time we missed. Next time we won’t.” Other journalists simultaneously received messages on their pagers with the same statement.
After a while, a Shin Bet agent approached and asked Yigal who he was. He reportedly replied that he was one of the drivers. The agent apparently accepted the answer and walked away. At no point did anyone ask Yigal to produce identification or seriously challenge his presence near the cars. Much criticism was later leveled against the police and the Shin Bet for failing to create a “sterile” area near the stage, a standard security precaution.
In the chaotic aftermath of the assassination, rival Israeli law-enforcement officials engaged in a frenzy of finger-pointing and recriminations. In the newspapers and on the airwaves, the Police Ministry and the Shin Bet hurled accusations at one another, each attempting to blame the other for the lax security. Shin Bet head Karmi Gillon, whose name was then a state secret, announced that the security services would conduct an internal investigation. The police announced their own internal probe. Astonishingly, within 48 hours—on November 7—the Shin Bet report was concluded and leaked to the press. The document, which was authored by three former branch heads of the Shin Bet, found that the entire protection system assigned to the prime minister had collapsed. The report lambasted the inability of the Shin Bet to gather intelligence on extreme right-wing groups. After the report’s release, the head of the protection department, identified as “D,” was forced to resign. The Shin Bet insisted that D’s negligence was the sole reason for the procedural breaches on the night of the killing.
On Tuesday, November 7, Raviv was arrested by the police, on charges that he was involved in the assassination. The Jerusalem Post asserted that his group, Eyal, was being investigated in connection with a conspiracy to kill the prime minister. As the handcuffed Raviv was brought to court under heavy police guard, he yelled to reporters, “This is a political investigation and a false arrest! This is a dictatorship!”
The next day, the government announced the formation of a commission of inquiry into the assassination, to be headed by former Supreme Court justice Meir Shamgar. And from the outset, the Shamgar Commission was plagued by conflicts of interest and questions of impartiality. Shamgar himself had served for many years as Judge Advocate General of the Israeli army and maintained ties to the military establishment. He was also a close personal friend of the Rabin family. Shamgar was joined on the panel by a former head of the Mossad, Zvi Zamir, and Professor Ariel Rosen-Zvi, dean of Tel Aviv University law school. Professor Rosen-Zvi was in the advanced stages of cancer at the time and would be dead within weeks of the commission’s final report.
In a strange twist, Judge Alon Gillon, the older brother of Shin Bet head Karmi Gillon, was named secretary of the commission. Sitting in on the commission’s proceedings was the brother of the government official who was most likely to be blamed if the commission concluded that the Shin Bet had failed to safeguard Rabin. The possible conflict of interest apparently escaped the notice of the commissioners—Karmi Gillon would testify before the commission at length. Unfortunately, neither the public nor the news media were allowed to attend many of the commission’s hearings.
Equally troubling was the presence of Attorney General Michael Ben-Yair. Since the commission was investigating, among other issues, whether the attorney general’s office was granting some Shin Bet informants—one of which was later alleged to be Raviv—immunity from prosecution, the presence of the attorney general at the hearings was surprising indeed. If the government’s intent was to definitively ascertain what led to Rabin’s assassination, then even the perception of impropriety should not have been tolerated.
On the weekend before the Shamgar Commission was to hear its first witness, Karmi Gillon, there was a stunning revelation: Israeli television and radio both reported that Raviv was, indeed, an undercover agent for the Shin Bet. According to the reports, Raviv, codenamed “Champagne” by his Shin Bet handlers, had been on the government’s payroll for at least two years as a top infiltrator of the far Right. But according to an investigation by the Jerusalem Post, Raviv’s task involved much more than infiltration: His orders were to attract individuals to Eyal, incite them to illegal activities, and then inform on them to the Shin Bet.
Elon, who had met Raviv and other Eyal activists on a number of occasions at demonstrations and elsewhere, said that Raviv had been Yigal’s constant companion in the months prior to the killing. How could Raviv have been so close to Yigal and not known, as Raviv later claimed in court, of the assassination plan? And how could a Shin Bet informer have been so closely involved in all of these activities without the knowledge of the Shin Bet, which is supervised by the Office of the Prime Minister?
The two weeks after the assassination were the most horrible period of my life. Now, suddenly, came the revelation of a Shin Bet connection to Yigal’s “pal” Raviv.
And then there were more revelations. Israel’s leading daily, Yediot Ahronot, reported that in testimony before a closed session of the Shamgar Commission, several young women at a religious seminary said that they had recognized Yigal and Raviv from a Sabbath retreat at Ma’aleh Yisrael the previous summer. The girls told their teacher, Sarah Eliash, that Raviv had denounced several Rabin government officials as “traitors.” During several marathon ideological discussions that weekend, Raviv had attempted to goad Yigal into killing Rabin, ridiculing his “cowardice” for not being willing to assassinate a “traitor.” In court, Raviv said he had heard Yigal talk about the “need to kill Rabin” but claimed he hadn’t taken him seriously.
Ojalbo also maintained that Raviv had verbally pressured Yigal to attempt an assassination of Rabin. “Raviv told Yigal and others, time and time again, that there was a din-rodef [judgment] on Yitzhak Rabin. He said, ‘Rabin should die,’ and whoever killed him was a righteous person…. Raviv had a powerful influence on Yigal. He continuously emphasized to him and other students that whoever implemented the din-rodef against Rabin was carrying out a holy mission.”
The next Raviv revelation came from the Jerusalem Post investigative reporter Steve Rodan. He reported that “Israel Broadcasting Authority spokesman [Ayala Cohen] said the first report of the Rabin shooting was broadcast at 9:48 P.M. Channel 1 began broadcasting live at 10:15, and 15 minutes later, the alleged assassin was identified as a 25-year-old student from Herzliyya.”
But Rodan also wrote that Raviv had arrived at the Tel Aviv rally 15 minutes before Rabin’s murder. When the first rumors of the shooting swept through the crowd, at 9:50 P.M., Rodan reported, “Immediately Raviv pulled out his mobile telephone and spoke to an unidentified person. ‘He called somebody,’ one of the witnesses said. ‘He asked whether they shot Rabin.’ Then Raviv asked, ‘Was he hurt?’…. When he finished [the conversation] he shouted, ‘It was Yigal. Don’t you know Yigal? He was at the Orient House demonstrations [Eyal’s protests at PLO headquarters in Jerusalem].’ Raviv then made his way toward nearby Ichilov Hospital and then disappeared.”
“Those around him could not understand how Raviv knew the identity of the assassin before anyone else,” Rodan reported.
The official investigation of Raviv’s relationship with Yigal remains shrouded in secrecy. Labor, of course, wanted no further probing into a potentially explosive scandal. Ironically, Likud, having forced national elections in two months, preferred to put the issue to rest.
The idea of using an agent provocateur was not originated by the Shin Bet. The secret police in czarist Russia created fake anarchist cells in order to attract genuine anarchist militants whom they would arrest and execute. When the Soviets came to power, they employed the same tactic against their political enemies. In the United States, the FBI created COINTELPRO (the counterintelligence program) to recruit potential lawbreakers, help incite them to break the law, then arrest them. By the late 1970s, the use of such unscrupulous tactics had been exposed and widely condemned as improper interference with citizens’ rights. In Israel, unfortunately, dirty tricks are still commonly used.
I believe Raviv enjoyed the full backing and protection of the Shin Bet. He assaulted a member of the Knesset and did not serve a day in jail. The Office of the Prime Minister was contacted to help intervene in an attempt to prevent his expulsion from Tel Aviv University. He emerged scot-free from distributing racist literature, publicly praising Baruch Goldstein, holding illegal summer militia camps, and allegedly distributing the Rabin-SS poster. On many occasions, he allegedly urged the assassination of Rabin and other Labor government officials and was never prosecuted. Raviv’s lawlessness had to have sent the message to potential extremists that violence could be employed with impunity.
Just minutes after Yigal had shot the prime minister, somebody called reporters, identified himself as a spokesman for a right-wing organization, and claimed, “This time we missed. Next time we won’t.” It seems astonishing to me that the caller could have known that the shots were fired by a right-wing Jew rather than an Arab. Why did he think that the attack had failed?
Yet, for some reason, Raviv was sure that the attempt would fail. Why? Perhaps somebody—either Raviv or someone else—was surreptitiously supposed to have disabled Yigal’s gun, either by removing the firing pin or by replacing the bullets with blanks, before the shooting. It has been claimed in court that it was Yigal who shouted, “Blanks! Blanks!” But Shin Bet agents are trained to shout out “Blanks! Blanks!” in security drills. And I believe that that cry, combined with the fact that an agent assured Mrs. Rabin that the gun was not real, might mean that the Shin Bet were expecting an unsuccessful assassination attempt.
The Shin Bet could have arrested Yigal at any time in the weeks before the rally and charged him with plotting to kill Rabin. But the impact on the public would be so much more dramatic if Shin Bet agents heroically foiled an attempt on the prime minister’s life. But something went terribly wrong. The bullets were not blanks; the gun was not a toy.
•July 8 1996 – Neoconservative Think Tank Advocates Aggressive Israeli Foreign Policy. The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies, an Israeli think tank, publishes a paper titled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.” The paper, whose lead author is neoconservative Richard Perle, is meant to advise the new right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is properly referred to as the architect of the War on Terror. Richard Perle will become a top Bush Administration official and member of PNAC. Another co-author, Meyrav Wurmser, will become the future director of the neoconservative Hudson Institute’s Center for Middle East Policy
•July 17 1996 – TWA 800 explodes off Long Island, 230 people died. The cover story the Clinton Administration decides to go with is that the fuel tank exploded due to faulty wiring creating a spark. Overwhelming evidence pointing to a missile attack was suppressed. Mossad contacted their world-wide media contacts stating that the crash was a terrorist act perpetrated by Iraq and Iran. Additionally, Mossad gave an official warning to the US in the months before the incident that an American aircraft would be the target of “sabotage or hijacking” by “Islamic extremists.” As in Oklahoma City 1995, the Clinton Administration decided not to “go there”, possibly staving off the Zionists’ warmongering plans yet again.
James Kallstron, the FBI agent in charge of the investigation said: “If there was a way to nail those bastards in Tel Aviv, for time wasting, I sure would like to see it happen. We had to check every item they slipped into the media.” Of course, by the time the FBI report came out, many Americans and others had mentally registered the disinformation as truth and damage was done to our relations with Iraq and Iran.
The Tel Aviv paper Yediot Ahronot disclosed yesterday that Israel had been asked by the CIA to check the Athens-New York passenger list of TWA Flight 800. The involvement of Mossad, Israel’s secret service, emerged after it was made known that the Israelis warned US Intelligence before the disaster that an American aircraft would be the target of “sabotage or hijacking” by Islamic extremists. “The American intelligence agency gave Mossad the passenger list of the TWA plane from Athens to New York and asked that it check the passengers’ backgrounds to reveal if one of them had connections to a terror group,” reported the paper, which has close links to the Israeli security services. …. Earlier this month, a Mossad officer monitoring Middle East terrorist groups passed an unspecific warning to his American counterpart in TelAviv. The officer said: “The threat of sabotage or a hijacking against an American plane was analysed and considered serious enough for us to pass on to the Americans. It was then up to the Americans to assess the dangers and decide whether to pass it on to their airlines.”
At approximately 8:30 PM (EDT), on July 17, 1996, at an altitude of 13,800 feet, TWA Flight 800, a Boeing 747, exploded and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean about eight miles south of Long Island, NY. The jetliner was on a regularly scheduled flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Charles De Gaulle International Airport in Paris, France. Good weather and high summertime populations allowed hundreds to observe the crash. Officially, no less than 736 witnesses were interviewed in the immediate aftermath. . . . Moments before the crash, witnesses observed a streak of light rise from the ocean surface. These observations initially caused FBI agents “to suspect that a missile might have been used against flight 800″. Ultimately however, the NTSB concluded that the witnesses mistook the aircraft itself for a missile.
A detailed statistical examination of the database is presented that shows a majority of the witnesses who reported seeing a rising “streak of light” moments before the crash contradict the NTSB’s explanation of the streak and clearly establish that the NTSB theory is untenable.
A statistical study of a recently released FBI database of 736 witness interview summaries refutes the NTSB’s conclusion. Most significantly, eighty-six percent of the witnesses who described the motion and/or origin of the rising streak reject the NTSB’s explanation. These witnesses observed the streak emanate from the surface when Flight 800 was 2.6 miles (approximately 4 km) above it. Others reported seeing the streak moving along a different trajectory from that of Flight 800 and/or seeing the streak collide with Flight 800 (see “FIRO Witness Statistics” on page 8). The remaining fourteen percent offer no information concerning the streak’s origin.
The FBI withheld the accounts of 278 witnesses from the NTSB for more than one year after the crash. All witness accounts with descriptions of a “streak” colliding with an aircraft were concealed from the NTSB in this withheld data. . . At the final public hearing on the crash in August 2000, the NTSB dramatically under-reported the number of witness accounts that conflicted with their proposed crash scenario.
•1997 – Project for a New American Century is launched by top American and Israeli Zionists, many with dual Israeli-American citizenship, known as the Neocons (Neo-conservatives). They quickly take over the Republican Paty and become the most influential political group sweeping into American politics, eventually cementing their power as the primary group forming the Bush Administration, which comes to power after stealing the election in 2000, and again in 2004. They exert enormous pressure on the Clinton Administration to pursue “Regime Change” in Iraq during Clinton’s final years. They will become (in)famous when they predict (call for?) a “New Pearl Harbor” event to justify an aggressive new policy of regime change in the Middle East, with their September 2000 controversial 90-page report entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces, and Resources For a New Century.”, published 1 year before the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks.
•1998 – Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal. Furious at Clinton for his betrayal in the 1995 Oklahoma City false flag bombing plot and other false flag attacks that were likely perpetrated to push the US into a “war on terror” against Israel’s “enemies”, the Zionists work with right wing Republicans to try to bring Clinton down through a sex scandal in which he is almost impeached and removed from office. Also, there is evidence that Mossad wanted to use the Monica tapes to blackmail Clinton:
It has never been made clear how Mossad learned of the affair, who tipped off reporters Isikoff and, later, Matt Drudge, or why everyone decided to go public with the revelation that America’s president had a mistress not much older than his daughter just as Netanyahu arrived to “set Washington on fire.” More than a year later, the U.S. national capital is still smoldering.
According to author Thomas, Mossad’s Clinton tapes also directly affected another top-priority FBI investigation that may have roots going all the way back to the administration of President Ronald Reagan, when U.S. Naval counterintelligence specialist Jonathan Jay Pollard was given a life sentence for stealing thousands of pages of classified documents on behalf of Israel. The stolen material relating to codes, satellite surveillance, and intelligence sources and methods was so highly classified that the U.S. government declined to describe it even to the sentencing judge.
According to Thomas, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir passed some of Pollard’s stolen material pertaining to U.S. intelligence-gathering resources and capabilities to the former Soviet Union “as a gesture of goodwill.” Although Thomas doesn’t say it, the Soviets reciprocated by allowing tens of thousands of Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel. Thomas reports also that Shamir also was able to turn over enough of the Pollard material to the former apartheid government of South Africa to enable it to cripple U.S. intelligence gathering in Africa and to hide joint Israeli-South African nuclear weapons development from U.S. detection.
Interestingly, U.S. investigators concluded that Pollard was able to gather such sensitive material because someone in a higher position in the U.S. government described to Pollard’s Israeli handlers the documents he should steal. Also, according to Thomas, Pollard’s Israeli handlers were able to give him the codes, some of them changed every few days, which were designed to make such sensitive material inaccessible to middle-level civil servants like Pollard.
The ongoing FBI search for an Israeli spy at the very top level of the U.S. government received a name during Clinton’s first term. On Feb. 16, 1997, a U.S. government agency intercepted a telephone call from a Mossad agent named Dov in Israel’s Washington, DC embassy to his Mossad superior in Tel Aviv. The Israeli ambassador wanted the agent to go to “Mega,” the agent said, to obtain a copy of guarantees then-U.S Secretary of State Warren Christopher had given to Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat in connection with the Israeli withdrawal from part of Hebron in the West Bank.
“That’s not what we use Mega for,” the official in Tel Aviv responded, thus setting off a renewed top-priority search by the FBI for a high-level Israeli spy code-named “Mega.” Meanwhile, according to Thomas’s book, Mossad desperately planted “spin” stories in the U.S. media claiming that “Mega” was just Israeli government jargon for the CIA and its program of overt cooperation with Mossad.
Ignoring the spin, the FBI had narrowed the search to the upper echelon of the National Security Council, which includes National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, the secretaries of state and defense, and the employees who deal with foreign policy and military matters in the Clinton White House, or to someone who has access to all NSC correspondence when, according to Thomas, the FBI was ordered to downgrade its investigation.
In his book, Thomas implies that downgrading the FBI search for “Mega,” just when the circle of suspects had been narrowed down, was linked to Clinton succumbing to Israeli blackmail based on the Mossad’s tapes of his telephone conversations with Monica.
In January, 1997 the FBI found out there was a high-level Mossad deep-penetration agent within the Clinton administration’s Pentagon whom the FBI code-named Mega. When notified that they were uncovered, Mossad’s director, Danny Yatom, had the Jewish lobbyists in the U.S. alerted to the need to suppress the FBI investigation and forestall any Israeli embarrassment. All of a sudden at White House dinners Jewish guests – Hollywood stars, attorneys, editors – were telling the President that he didn’t need another scandal and that his administration ought not to pursue Jewish spies anymore vigorously than it did spies from other countries.
In the meantime, in March of ’97, a Washington katsa [undercover trained Mossad agent] reported to Tel Aviv that the President was having phone sex in the Oval Office with a White House aide. The Mossad sent a team to Washington to record the calls – tapping the Watergate apartment where Lewinsky lived. All tapes were sent by courier to Tel Aviv. (Thomas, pp.107-8, 340-1)
•1998-2001 – Massive Israeli spy operation in US discovered, said to cause ‘incredible damage’ for US security At least 200 Israeli intelligence agents were rounded up (at least 140 before 9/11 and 60 after 9/11), many of whom were detained for months before being ordered deported back to Israel by Bush’s Zionist Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff. Incredibly, many failed lie detector tests when questioned by the FBI before Chertoff intervened and ordered them released and deported!
“By way of deception, thou shalt do war”
Motto of the Mossad
According to a UPI report [United Press International, 12/9/2004]:
“A former very senior CIA counterintelligence official told UPI that in 1998-99, the CIA discovered an Israeli couple, who were subcontracted to a US phone company, were working for Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service. ‘They did incredible damage—they got incredibly sensitive data, including key words identifying individuals or projects,’” this source said, adding he himself gave the case to the FBI.
In 2005, a US criminal indictment will reveal that the FBI began monitoring some Israeli diplomatic officials in the US by April 1999.
Fox News aired a four part series beginning on December 11, 2001 exposing the massive Israeli spying operation prior to 9/11 by Carl Cameron.
The most well known group included the five Mossad agents arrested after filming and celebrating WTC collapses (who had set up their video camera before the WTC attack began, and later admitted that they were sent to “document the event”. They were arrested and failed lie detector tests but were let go due to orders from Michael Chertoff. The police who caught up with the group after a New Jersey woman reported their suspicious activiies found them driving in an “Urban Movers” van and believed that they were planning on blowing up either the Holland Tunnel or the George Washington Bridge after explosives-sniffing dogs were brought in and detected the smell of explosives.
Reporting the round-up and deportation of scores of Israeli agents – masquerading as “art students” – Cameron noted that several were “active Israeli military” and the rest had skills that one normally associates with spies: electronic interception, explosives, and special operations. Many were caught trying to penetrate U.S. government facilities on the pretext of being Israeli “art students,” and they gave differing accounts of their mission: to sell their paintings, to “promote” their artwork, to “promote” Israel. They went into high gear in the months prior to 9/11. A senior law enforcement official off-the-record claimed that, while “’There is no indication the Israelis were involved in the Sept. 11 attacks,’ we are told, ‘investigators suspect that they may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance and not shared it.” Carl Cameron’s explosive contention was that Israel had foreknowledge of 9/11.
Concentrated in Florida – within a stone’s throw of Hollywood, where Mohammed Atta and his fellow alleged hijackers had their abode – and Texas, these Israeli “art students” were organized in teams as they systematically sought to penetrate government offices and military facilities. The majority were “ex’-members of intelligence, communications interception and explosive ordnance units of the Israeli army. At least 120 were arrested prior to 9/11, in what appeared to be a major Israeli covert operation aimed at sensitive US government targets.
A US official is quoted stating that “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.”
A secret government report (originating with the Drug Enforcement Agency) detailing the highly suspicious activities of these aspiring Israeli “artists” was subsequently uncovered, and a series of stories appeared in the international media: Le Monde, the British media, and then in the US media. (See June 2001)
A story appeared in the Washington Post reporting the detention of some 60 Israelis rounded up after 9/11 under the same legal rubric as the Arabs being held on suspicion of terrorist connections. These guys, said the Justice Department lawyers, were of “special interest” to the government.
•August 1998 – Two US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania are bombed August 7 1998 and blamed on Bin Laden and Al Queda. The Clinton Admin decides to take a “measured response” by bombing targets in Sudan and Afghanistan August 20, 1998 but again fails to launch wars in the Middle East or to pursue regime change – a long-time Zionist goal
Several US and Israeli sources, including ABC News and the Tel Aviv newspaper Ha’aretz, reported Wednesday that a US informant in Kenya had warned the American government two weeks before the blast that the Nairobi embassy had been targeted for a bomb attack. The informant was a contact of Israel’s Mossad intelligence service, but when American officials checked with Mossad about the reliability of the source, they were advised to treat the report with skepticism. No special security measures were taken at the embassy. The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to comment on the Ha’aretz article. But the Israeli government’s dismissal of this advance warning may account for its extraordinary effort to supply bomb experts and rescue teams in the wake of the bombing, for reasons which have not otherwise been explained.
Such questions are not even considered in the [Zionist-controlled?]American media discussion of the East African bombings, in which major newspapers and television networks are vying to supply one or another Middle East nation as a potential target for US military retaliation.
The New York Times suggested Libya as a target in its Wednesday news pages, while an editorial vilified Iraq. The Washington Post added Syria and Islamic fundamentalist groups based in Yemen and Egypt to the list.
The Wall Street Journal published a column the same day denouncing the Clinton administration for ignoring evidence that Iran was behind blasts, and declaring the attack on the embassies “an act of war.” The Journal cited US bombing raids on Libya in 1986, ordered by Ronald Reagan, as an example for Clinton.
Another column in the Journal, by its Washington correspondent, revealed that the Pentagon changed the composition of US forces in the Persian Gulf region after last February’s confrontation with Saddam Hussein, so that a protracted buildup would not be required before launching air strikes against targets in Iraq. Such attacks could be launched against Iraq–or any other target in region–literally overnight
•July 16 1999 – JFK, Jr. is assassinated. The official cover story is that, uh, they don’t really know why JFK, Jr’s plane suddenly fell out of the sky off Martha’s Vinyard and crashed. But the mountain of evidence of a cover-up by the FAA, Coast Guard, Air Force, Pentagon, and FBI proves otherwise. Additionally, false stories were planted in the media, some by a Mossad agent DAVID HEYMANN, falsely accusing JFK Jr of being an irresponsible pilot, of being an incompetent pilot, of not having the proper license, and other blatantly false claims. JFK, Jr. was set to announce his candidacy a few days later for New York Senate and would have certainly beat Hillary Clinton by all indications. Many people believed he was on track to run for president. Many weird Mossad/Israeli “coincidences” yet again present themselves around this event. One strange coincidence was the fact that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak was in Washington at the time of the assassination. Not to suggest that Barak had anything to do with the murder, but along with Barak’s visit came an entourage of Mossad Agents, who had a perfect alibi for being in the US during that time.
Catherine Crier of FOX-TV reported on The Crier Report that Kennedy had been set to meet with high-ranking Israeli and Mossad officials in his ongoing pursuit of further information for his ongoing expose of the Rabin assassination. George magazine had ALREADY published a 13 page article on the conspiracy behind RABIN’S murder involving Israeli Secret service (Shabak).
7.31.99 Recipients– Several days ago we forwarded an excerpt from a report by Israeli researcher/investigator/author Barry Chamish regarding the deaths Of John Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn and sister-in-law Lauren Bessette.
Barry has an enviably distinct and much-welcome high degree of credibility in the wild and woolly frontiers of the “conspiracy” landscape.
Chamish, in light of information relayed to him by numerous high-quality, time-tested sources, gives little or no indication of doubt that John Kennedy Jr. was bumped off.
Chamish moreover STRONGLY indicates he sees reason to believe at least some of the conspirators and/or perpetrators of the murder were closely linked to Israeli spooks… in the Mossad and in Shabak, Israeli secret service. Chamish is so sure of this that despite obvious moral and ethical distaste and discomfort with his own position he indicates he will NOT pursue the trail of evidence in the Kennedy and Bessette murders because of the near-certainty (in his mind) that said trail will lead to Israel… and subsequently to trouble and hardship for his country; regardless of the fact that it would clearly be a malignant rogue element of Israeli intelligence linked to the Rabin assassination which was involved in Kennedy’s murder. (George magazine had just run a 13-page expose of forces behind the Rabin hit AND had been scheduled to meet with Mossad agents and other informants on threat and related matters at a time not long after he ended up dead. Hmmm…
Of PARTICULAR note in all this is that one of the PRIME MOTIVATORS and architects of the spin-doctored house of cards erected after Kennedy’s plane “went missing”–the completely fabricated version of reality which claims Kennedy was a seriously under-trained pilot with feeble flying skills and yadayadayada–is hack writer and world-class rumor-monger DAVID HEYMANN, author of several “unauthorized’ and totally non-credible “biographies” about the Kennedys: he is known to be strongly disliked by some members of the Kennedy family. Heymann is a “former” MOSSAD AGENT.
Sometime well before the morning of Monday July 19, Heymann described for columnist Cindy Adams of the New York Post how in a supposed phone conversation he had with Kennedy earlier that fateful Friday, July 16, Kennedy seemed anxious about flying that night, and about making an extra landing at Marthaâs Vineyard to drop off Lauren Bessette before flying on to Hyannisport for his cousin Rory’s wedding.
No record of this supposed phone call exists anywhere, although a call may have taken place. We have only Heymann’s word for that however, and even more importantly, we have only this known fabricator’s word that Kennedy actually said what Heymann claims he said.
Cindy Adams of the NY Post wrote up Heymann’s tale for the Post’s Monday July 19 edition.
Heymann, a former Israeli intelligence agent, somehow managed to reconstruct for Cindy Adams his entire conversation with JFK Jr., which he claims ended with Kennedy worrying, “I have to land twice. I’m really not that experienced a pilot.” How amazing Heymann got all this out just in time to have Adams run it in the Monday Post. For the story to get typeset and printed for the morning edition Heymann would have needed to have talked with Adams before (approximately) 11 PM the night before. Reportedly however, during a long interview on WABC radio with host Steve Malzberg the very night before, Heymann did not divulge ANY of this information.
Clearly Heymann’s dubious, intentionally disinformative recollections were the opening salvos in an energetic and widespread campaign of falsehoods, disinformation and spin-doctoring regarding the fatal plane crash which have dominated nearly ALL mass media coverage and reporting of the tragedy.
Clearly intelligence asset Heymann had gotten his marching orders and went right to work–getting his fable printed in what has to be the least-credible “mainstream” paper in the country, the Hollywood Star in disguise… the New York Post.
Naturally Adams herself cast MAJOR doubt on Heymann’s entire dubious confabulation in short order, but the damage had already been done–or is that damage-CONTROL?
Hordes of lemmings and clones in mass media had ALREADY picked up the story and it’s glaring implications of reckless, “risk-taking” (there’s that gene again!) and generally unforgivable lack of caution on Kennedy’s part as being the cause of the tragedy, from that paragon of credibility, the NY Post.
It IS known that JFK Jr. was going to interview Heymann along with other current and former members of Israel’s intelligence community, as noted above, in his continuing investigation into the Mossad and Shabak.
Perhaps Chamish knows what he’s talking about when he says he doesn’t want to talk about it (the murder of Kennedy and the Bessettes).
In OUR estimation however, whatever the degree of involvement in the Kennedy and Bessette murders by foreign intelligence, it’s INCONCEIVABLE such a “hit” would have gone down on American soil without at least the TACIT cooperation of VERY high-level U.S. interests and organizations. The names “Bush” and “Clinton” come to mind here.
It’s a fact–Kennedy was all but set to run for national political office.
It’s a fact–George magazine had begun taking on increasingly controversial subjects; often delving into at least the fringes of some hard core “conspiracies.” Tough guy Janet Reno was in fact Kennedy’s next target for an expose in George. The Rabin matter had been covered once and was due to get covered again… in DEPTH.
It’s a VERY safe bet that somewhere along the line, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy (Sr.) and Bobby Kennedy would have become the subject of JFK Jr.’s intense, and very public, scrutiny.
We’ll say it again. Kennedy was “whacked.”
Behind the scenes, a hokey cover story was concocted. The weather, which was perfect, became stormy. JFK Jr. had a gimpy leg. Reports by the FAA and FBI, both concluding foul play was involved, were buried, the arrival of Israeli PM Ehud Barak to Clinton’s court the day before was given an alternative explanation…In fact JFK Jr.’s profound affect on Israel was never mentioned.
But it was huge. In the March, 1997 issue of his magazine, George, JFK Jr. became the only publisher of a major American publication to expose the conspiracy to murder Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. His 13 page expose shook the Israeli establishment to it’s foundations:
Jewish Web Network News April 02 1997
Israeli Prime Minister Rabin’s widow charged Tuesday that John Kennedy Jr.’s magazine crossed “the red line” by publishing an article by the mother of her husband’s assassin. “How, of all people, could he do such a thing?” Mrs. Kennedy asked of the son of President Kennedy who was assassinated in 1963. “Perhaps he needed a sensational story to sell his paper. I would expect that he would take a higher moral stand in his paper.”
The article claimed that Amir was goaded to shoot Rabin by an undercover agent for the Shin Bet, Israel’s security agency. (It) thought it would be done with a doctored gun. The security force let the attack happen so they could take credit for saving the prime minister.
And JFK Jr. was about to publish the final truth about Rabin’s murder. This, Israel could not allow. It’s operatives were called into action.This interview with JFK Jr.’s driver appeared in Maariv shortly after the Piper crash.
HE COULD BARELY WALK, HOW DID HE FLY?
Yoel Katzavman drove John Jr. 48 hours before the plane broke up. “He was a quiet and humble client.”
“How could he have flown that plane with a broken leg? It was really suicidal?,” said Yoel Katzavman (38), a limousine driver born in Hakiriot, who drove the Kennedy couple many times. Katzavman arrived in the US three years before and was employed by the Empire limousine service. He was often called to drive John Jr. and Carolyn Kennedy from their New York apartment. He recalls his last ride with John Jr., less than 48 hours before the final takeoff.It was this self-serving interview that raised my suspicions and I went looking. Here is what I wrote in July, 2009:
So now what do we do about the information coming out on the explosion of JFK Jr.’s plane? The day it happened I wrote that JFK Jr. was doing more than any other American media figure to get to the bottom of the Rabin assassination truth. I reminded readers that his magazine George ran a 13 page expose of the Shabak’s involvement in the assassination. I suggested that this was a brave but risky stand. Then came the tidal wave of data. The FBI Preliminary Report confirming the bomb on the plane and noting the type of explosive was used by certain foreign intelligence services. This was followed by Catherine Crier of Fox TV’s The Crier Report, announcing that JFK Jr. was about to meet high ranking Mossad officers to get the full story on the Rabin assassination. Then the German newspaper, Franfurter Allgemaine Zeitung, reported that Kennedy had met with the deputy chief of the Mossad, Amiram Levine to get the full story on the Rabin assassination two days before his plane went down. Then Maariv ran an interview with JFK’s chauffeur, who happens to be Israeli. Then people started noting that Ehud Barak was in Washington at the time of Kennedy’s finale in life.
•2000 – George W Bush steals the election, brings Neocons to power. Having been betrayed by 2 recent administrations, the Zionists decide that the only way to guarantee that their long-time War on Terror plans reach fruition is to have their own people occupy the white House. Nothing can be left to chance anymore, so they will take over the government by hook or by crook, and choose Georgie “dubya” as the dutiful stooge for their plans.
•May 2001 – Israel Warns US of ‘Big Attack’
The Associated Press will report in May 19, 2002:
Israeli intelligence services were aware several months before Sept. 11 that bin Laden was planning a large-scale terror attack but did not know what his targets would be, Israeli officials have said. An Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells the Associated Press shortly after the attacks that ‘everybody knew about a heightened alert and knew that bin Laden was preparing a big attack.’ He said information was passed on to Washington but denied Israel had any concrete intelligence that could have been used to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks.”
The claim that Israel lacks concrete intelligence is contradicted by other media reports regarding later warnings from Israeli intelligence.
•June 2001 – A secret DEA Report is made regarding the alarming activities by the massive Israeli Spying operation, including the so-called “Art Students”, and details the apprehension of at least 120 Israeli agents by June of 2001. Some of these agents had specialized training in explosives/demolition.
An excellent article in Salon, 5/7/2002, by Christopher Ketcham, and wire stories detailing the leaked contents of the DEA report raised awareness of a possible Israeli connection to the events surrounding 9/11.
Der Spiegel:[Der Spiegel (Hamburg),10/1/2002]Original link is dead:
An entire troop of Israeli terror investigators disguised as students took to the tracks of Arabic terrorists and their cells in the USA between December 2000 and April 2001. During their undercover investigations, the Israelis came very close to the later perpetrators of September 11. In Hollywood, Florida they located both of the former Hamburg students and later terrorist pilots Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi as potential terrorists. Agents settled down in immediate proximity of their apartment and observed the seemingly normal flight school students around the clock.
The Israelis were not exactly forthcoming. On March 3, 2001, alerted to the Israeli “art student” invasion, the Orlando office of the DEA took one Peer Segalovitz into custody, and interrogated him for four hours.
According to the DEA report leaked to Salon:
A 27-year-old officer of the Israeli special military forces, attached to the 650th battalion stationed in the Golan Heights, Segalovitz gave his rank (Lieutenant) and serial number (5087989) and said that he “specialized in demolition.” After recounting his familiarity with military operations, and stating “that the only thing he was not trained to operate was military aircraft,” he “asked agents not to divulge this information to Israel because it would lead to his immediate arrest in Israel.” Segalovitz was untruthful about his reasoning to be in the United States for approximately the first 3 hours. Segalovitz finally admitted that he was one of approximately 30 Israeli art students who are currently in Florida. Segalovitz would not admit what their purpose was in Florida, but did state that they were not here for legitimate means.
On March 23, 2001, DEA Issues Alert to Look Out for Israeli Spies. The Office of National Drug Control Policy issues a National Security Alert describing “apparent attempts by Israeli nationals to learn about government personnel and office layouts.” This later becomes known through a leaked DEA document called “Suspicious Activities Involving Israeli Art Students at DEA Facilities.” A crackdown ensues and by June, around 120 Israelis are apprehended. More are apprehended later.
June 2001 Drug Enforcement Administration report
In June, 2001 DEA Draws Up Report on Israeli Spies. The DEA’s Office of Security Programs prepares a 60-page internal memo on the Israeli “art student spy ring.” The Memo is a compilation of dozens of field reports, and was meant only for the eyes of senior officials at the Justice Department (of which the DEA is adjunct), but it is leaked to the press around December 2001. The report connects the spies to efforts to foil investigations into Israeli organized crime activity involving the importation of the drug Ecstasy. The spies also appear to be snooping on top-secret military bases. For instance, on April 30, 2001, an Air Force alert was issued from Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City concerning “possible intelligence collection being conducted by Israeli art students.” Tinker AFB houses AWACS surveillance craft and Stealth bombers. By the time of the report, the US has “apprehended or expelled close to 120 Israeli nationals” but many remain at large. [Salon, 5/7/2002] An additional 20 or so Israeli spies are apprehended between June and 9/11. [Fox News, 12/12/2001
•August 8-15 2001 – Israel Reportedly Warns of Major Assault on the US
At some point between these dates, Israel warns the US that an al-Qaeda attack is imminent.
Reportedly, two high-ranking agents from the Mossad come to Washington and warn the FBI and CIA that from 50 to 200 terrorists have slipped into the US and are planning “a major assault on the United States.” They say indications point to a “large scale target,” and that Americans would be “very vulnerable.” They add there could be Iraqi connections to the al-Qaeda attack.
Oddly, The Los Angeles Times later retracts its story after a CIA spokesperson says, “There was no such warning. Allegations that there was are complete and utter nonsense.” [Los Angeles Times, 9/21/2001] Other newspapers do not retract it.
•August 23 2001 – Mossad Reportedly Gives CIA List of 19 Terrorists Living in US; at Least Four 9/11 “Hijackers” Named
According to German newspapers, the Mossad gives the CIA a list of 19 terrorists living in the US and say that they appear to be planning to carry
out an attack in the near future. It is unknown if these are the 19 9/11 hijackers or if the number is a coincidence. However, four names on the list are known, and these four will be 9/11 hijackers: Nawaf Alhazmi, Khalid Almihdhar, Marwan Alshehhi, and Mohamed Atta.
The Mossad appears to have learned about this through its “art student spy ring.” Yet apparently, this warning and list are not treated as particularly urgent by the CIA and the information is not passed on to the FBI. It is unclear whether this warning influenced the decision to add Alhazmi and Almihdhar to a terrorism watch list on this same day, and if so, why only those two. Israel has denied that there were any Mossad agents
in the US.
•September 4 2001 – Mossad Gives Another Warning of Major, Imminent Attack
[Sunday Mail, 9/16/2001]
“On or around” this day, the Mossad give their “latest” warning to the US of a major, imminent attack by al-Qaeda, according to sources close to Mossad. One former Mossad agent says, “My understanding is that the warning was not specific. No target was identified. But it should have resulted in an increased state of security.” US intelligence claims this never happened.
•September 4 2001 – Israeli Company Zim-American Israeli Shipping Moves Out of WTC
The Zim-American Israeli Shipping Co. moves their North American headquarters from the 16th floor of the WTC to Norfolk, Virginia, one week before the 9/11 attacks. The Israeli government owns 49 percent of the company. Zim announced the move and its date six months earlier. More than 200 workers had just been moved out; about ten are still in the building making final moving arrangements on 9/11, but escape. The move leaves only one Israeli company, ClearForest, with 18 employees, in the WTC on 9/11. The four or five employees in the building at the time manage to escape. One year later, a Zim ship is impounded while attempting to ship Israeli military equipment to Iran; it is speculated that this is done with the knowledge of Israel.
According to Wayne Madsen (grain of salt handy) Clearing the Baffles for 911 – October 3, 2005:
O’Neill’s FBI colleague, Mike Dick, aggressively investigated this Israeli ring before and after 911. But like O’Neill, he soon found himself removed from his duties on the orders of the then-head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division Michael Chertoff. Dick was very suspicious when Israeli movers quickly moved Zim American Israeli Shipping Company out of its 10,000 square feet of office space on the 16th and 17th Floors of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The partially Israeli state-owned firm forfeited a $50,000 security deposit when it terminated its lease and vacated the building one week prior to 911. According to a non official cover (NOC) CIA source who worked with Dick, Israeli movers moved explosives into the 17th Floor office space after Zim moved out.
•September 10 2001 – Army School Peacekeeping Report Says Mossad Can Target US Forces with False Flag Attacks
A group of second-year students at the Army School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS) produces a 68-page plan for sending peacekeepers to Israel in the event that the Israelis and Palestinians agree to a peace plan and the creation of a Palestinian state. Though the cover of the report indicates that the report has been written for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Maj. Chris Garver, a Fort Leavenworth spokesman, says that it was only an academic exercise. An article about the report appears in the Washington Times on September 10, 2001. The report refers to Israel’s armed forces as a “500-pound gorilla in Israel” that is “well armed and trained” and is “known to disregard international law to accomplish mission.” Of the Mossad, the report says: “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.” It describes Palestinian youths as “loose cannons; under no control, sometimes violent.” The SAMS officers write that US goals for the first 30 days of such a mission would be to “create conditions for development of Palestinian State and security of Israel”; ensure “equal distribution of contract value or equivalent aid” that would help legitimize the peacekeeping force and stimulate economic growth; “promote US investment in Palestine”; “encourage reconciliation between entities based on acceptance of new national identities”; and “build lasting relationship based on new legal borders and not religious-territorial claims.”
•(6:00 a.m.) 9/11/01 – Two Hours Before Attacks, Israeli Company Employees Receive Warnings
Two employees of Odigo, Inc., an Israeli company, receive warnings of an imminent attack in New York City about two hours before the first plane hits the WTC. Odigo, one of the world’s largest instant messaging companies, has its headquarters two blocks from the WTC. The Odigo Research and Development offices where the warnings were received are located in Herzliyya, a suburb of Tel Aviv. Israeli security and the FBI were notified immediately after the 9/11 attacks began. The two employees claim not to know who sent the warnings. “Odigo service includes a feature called People Finder that allows users to seek out and contact others based on certain interests or demographics. [Alex] Diamandis [Odigo vice president of sales and marketing] said it was possible that the attack warning was broadcast to other Odigo members, but the company has not received reports of other
recipients of the message.”
Odigo claims the warning did not specifically mention the WTC, but the company refuses to divulge what was specified, claiming, “Providing more details would only lead to more conjecture.” However, a later newspaper report claims that the message declared “that some sort of attack was about to take place. The notes ended with an anti-Semitic slur. ‘The messages said something big was going to happen in a certain amount of time, and it did—almost to the minute,’ said Alex Diamandis, vice president of sales for the high-tech company. He said the employees did not know the person who sent the message, but they traced it to a computer address and have given that information to the FBI.” Odigo gave the FBI the Internet address of the message’s sender so the name of the sender could be found. Two months later, it is reported that the FBI is still investigating the matter, but there have been no reports since.
•(~8:40 am) 9/11/01 – Minutes before attacks begin, Mossad agents begin filming the WTC from across the river in Liberty Park New Jersey. The New York Times reported Thursday, September 13, 2001 that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards. Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact. Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. A white moving van was described by all the witnesses. They would later become known as the Five Dancing Israelis and the FBI had later confirmed that they were Mossad agents. When a van fitting the exact description was stopped just before crossing into New York, the suspicious “middle-easterners” were apprehended and the police discovered that they were all Israelis.
According to ABC’s 20/20, when the van belonging to the cheering Israelis was stopped by the police, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers: We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem.
The police and FBI field agents became very suspicious when they found maps of the city with certain places highlighted, box cutters (the same items that the hijackers supposedly used), $4700 cash stuffed in a sock, and foreign passports. Police also told the Bergen Record that bomb sniffing dogs were brought to the van and that they reacted as if they had smelled explosives.
Additional vans of Mossad Agents were stopped, some with actual explosives, and suspected of attempting to blow up key bridges and tunnels between New York City and NJ. The Jerusalem Post later reported that a white van with a bomb was stopped as it approached the George Washington Bridge:
American security services overnight stopped a car bomb on the George Washington Bridge. The van, packed with explosives, was stopped on an approach ramp to the bridge. Authorities suspect the terrorists intended to blow up the main crossing between New Jersey and New York, Army Radio reported.
What’s really intriguing is that ABC’s 20/20 (15), the New York Post (16), and the New Jersey Bergen Record (17) all clearly and unambiguously reported that a white van with Israelis was intercepted on a ramp near Route 3, which leads directly to the Lincoln Tunnel.
But the Jerusalem Post, Israeli National News (Arutz Sheva) (18), and Yediot America, (19) all reported, just as clearly and unambiguously, that a white van with Israelis was stopped on a ramp leading to the George Washington Bridge, which is several miles north of the Lincoln Tunnel.
It appears as if there may actually have been two white vans involved, one stopped on each crossing. This would not only explain the conflicting reports as to the actual location of the arrests, but would also explain how so many credible eye-witnesses all saw celebrating “middle-easterners” in a white van in so many different locations. It also explains why the New York Post and Steve Gordon (lawyer for the 5 Israelis) originally described how three Israelis were arrested but later increased the total to five.
Perhaps one van was meant to drop off a bomb while the other was meant to pick up the first set of drivers while re-crossing back into New Jersey? If a van was to be used as a parked time-bomb on the GW Bridge, then certainly the drivers would need to have a “get-away van” to pick them up and escape. And notice how the van (or vans) stayed away from the third major crossing -the Holland Tunnel- which was where the police had originally been directed to by that anti-Palestinian 9-1-1 “mystery caller”. A classic misdirection play.
From there, the story gets becomes even more suspicious. The Israelis worked for a Weehawken moving company known as Urban Moving Systems. An American employee of Urban Moving Systems told the The Record of New Jersey that a majority of his co-workers were Israelis and they were joking about the attacks.
The employee, who declined to give his name said: “I was in tears. These guys were joking and that bothered me.” These guys were like, “Now America knows what we go through.” (20)
A few days after the attacks, Urban Moving System’s Israeli owner, Dominick Suter, dropped his business and fled the country for Israel. He was in such a hurry to flee America that some of Urban Moving System’s customers were left with their furniture stranded in storage facilities (21).
Suter’s departure was abrupt, leaving behind coffee cups, sandwiches, cell phones and computers strewn on office tables and thousands of dollars of goods in storage. Suter was later placed on the same FBI suspect list as 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta and other hijackers and suspected al-Qaeda sympathizers, suggesting that U.S. authorities felt Suter may have known something about the attacks. (22)
The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation. This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers’ vans are a common intelligence cover. (23). The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released. (24)
“There was no question but that [the order to close down the investigation] came from the White House. It was immediately assumed at CIA headquarters that this basically was going to be a cover-up so that the Israelis would not be implicated in any way in 9/11.” (25)
Several of the detainees discussed their experience in America on an Israeli talk show after their return home. Said one of the men, denying that they were laughing or happy on the morning of Sept. 11, “The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event.” (26)
•9/11/01 – Attacks in NY and DC provide the “catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor” that the Neocons/Zionists needed to finally initiate the War on Terror, which is really a War on Israel’s Enemies. On 9/11 former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “It’s very good. Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.” in 2008, Netanyahu will say, “We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” He added that these events “swung American public opinion in our favor.”
