Part 7: Israel’s Numerous Counterintelligence Crimes and the Damage it’s done to the U.S.A.

Israel has been involved in some of the most egregious counterintelligence crimes, false flag attacks, and other illegal covert operations against America over the last six decades. In fact, Israel has probably committed more of these crimes against the U.S. then all other Arab/Muslim countries combined. Although Israel is often viewed as a U.S. ally, its actions over the last six decades convey a different reality. As pointed out by ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky in Part 5, the Mossad (Israel) considers the whole world outside Israel as a target, including the U.S. Indeed, Part 2 will now discuss some of the known/exposed Israeli crimes against the U.S, showing that Israel is probably much more a foe than a friend to the U.S.A.

Israeli intelligence can be both an asset and a liability for the U.S. On one hand, Israeli intelligence and its military work very closely with the U.S. on various projects and operations. The relatively small country of Israel is the number one benefactor of U.S. foreign aid receiving approximately $3 billion per year, much of which is spent purchasing U.S. weapons from America’s MIC (approximately 75%). The U.S. underwrites some of Israel’s research and development of weapons and has contributed significant amounts of money to Israeli defense projects.[1] The two countries also participate in regularly held joint military exercises and it’s estimated that more than 300 Department of Defense personnel travel to Israel each month.[2]

On the other hand, Israeli intelligence is one of the U.S.’s greatest counterintelligence threats in the world. A couple of CIA surveys in the last five years alone have consistently shown Israel as one of the U.S.’s top three counterintelligence threats. Israel has also conducted false flag operations against the U.S. (see Part 8) and has been involved in at least several illegal operations with certain neoconservative individuals in the U.S.G. and its national security apparatus (see Part 9). Although Israeli intelligence is often viewed in a very positive light by the pro-Israeli U.S. mainstream media and it’s bought and controlled U.S. politicians, Israel’s actual record discussed below runs dreadfully contrary to this view.

The CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence and CIA Polls Showing Israel as Top 3 Counterintelligence Threat

The 1979 CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence had this to say about Israeli intelligence’s counterintelligence operations:

Israel devotes a considerable portion of their covert operations to obtaining scientific and technical intelligence which includes attempts to penetrate certain classified defense projects in the United States and other Western nations….Objectives in Western countries are equally important to the Israeli intelligence service. Mossad collects intelligence regarding Western, Vatican, and UN policies toward the Near East, promotes arms deals for the benefit of the IDF, and acquires data for use in silencing anti-Israel factions in the West.[3]

Ex-CIA Officer Philip Giraldi: Advocate against Israeli crimes to America

A CIA internal poll in 2010 showed Israel came in dead last in intelligence cooperation with the US and was ranked third in how aggressive they were in spying operations on US soil (only China and Russia were worse).[4] According to ex-CIA officer Philip Giraldi, there have been a number of cases reported to the FBI about Mossad officers who have approached leaders in Arab-American communities and have falsely represented themselves as U.S. intelligence because few Muslims would assist an Israeli agent. This is one definition of a false flag operation and it just so happens that the impersonators were Israeli Arabs operating out of Israel’s mission to the United Nations in New York undercover as consular assistants.

In July 2012, the Associated Press reported that the CIA considered Israel its number one counterintelligence threat in the agency’s Near East Division, the group that oversees spying across the Middle East. This basically means the CIA believes that U.S. national secrets are safer from other Middle Eastern governments than from Israel. The AP article further notes that Israel employs highly sophisticated spy services that rival American agencies and is a U.S. ally that enjoys access to the highest levels of the U.S. government in military and intelligence circles.[5]

Ex-FBI Agent John Cole: FBI had over 125 open counterintelligence investigations of Israel between 1993 to 95
Ex-FBI Agent John Cole: FBI had over 125 open counterintelligence investigations of Israel between 1993 to 95

There have been numerous mainstream media stories relating to Israel’s counterintelligence crimes and investigations and how they are usually covered-up by senior intelligence officials. According to former FBI counterintelligence agent John M. Cole, there was “at least” 125 open counterintelligence investigations of Israel during the time (1993 to 95) he was in an FBI counterintelligence unit that overlooked Western Europe and Israel.[6] Cole said that tracking Israeli spies was hush-hush and that he was prohibited from notifying field offices when an Israeli investigation crept into their jurisdictions. “No one was supposed to know we were investigating the Israelis.”[7]

Another FBI agent told Jeff Stein of Congressional Quarterly and Newsweek, “The 125 figure makes sense,” and that U.S. officials repeatedly warned the Israelis to back off. But the finger-wagging only seemed to energize them. “We would call them in, call them on the carpet, and next week there would be 10 more cases.” The Justice Department never seemed much interested in prosecuting them, he and other counterintelligence veterans said. Agents would get pissed off,” said the former top official. “We knew they were going to walk, that they were going to get a pass….It was frustrating.”[8]

A May 2014 article by Jeff Klein in Newsweek states that Israel’s espionage activities are unrivaled and unseemly, no other country close to the U.S. continues to cross the line on espionage like the Israelis do. According to former CIA officer Paul Pillar: Zionists were dispatching spies to America before there even was an Israel, to gather money and materials for the cause and later the fledging state. Key components for Israel’s nuclear bombs were clandestinely obtained here. “They’ve found creative and inventive ways,” Pillar said, to get what they want.[9]

As we saw in Parts 5 and 6, Israel’s Mossad and other government agencies have recruited U.S. citizens (sayanim or operatives) to support their intelligence efforts. Israel also has a long history of stealing American military and commercial secrets that jeopardizes America’s national security. Following are just several exposed instances of Israel’s many confirmed and suspected counterintelligence crimes against the U.S.A:

Zalman Shapiro and NUMEC: Israeli Stealing of U.S. Weapons-Grade Nuclear Material (1960’s)

As is typical with just about all criminal investigations involving Israel, the CIA and FBI had classified their investigative documents and basically covered-up Israel’s theft of at least 600 pounds of highly enriched uranium (HEU) during the 1960’s. However, thanks to the stellar effort and relentless FOIA requests by Grant Smith of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) and the thorough research by former Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials Victor Glinsky and Roger Mattson of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Israel’s stealing of U.S. weapons-grade nuclear material is now better understood.

Zalman Shapiro: Stole enough uranium for Israel to make over a dozen Hiroshima nuclear bombs
Zalman Shapiro: Stole enough uranium for Israel to make over a dozen Hiroshima nuclear bombs

NUMEC was a nuclear fuel processing company in the Pittsburg area (Portsmouth, PA) and its president was Zalman Shapiro (American Jew). Shapiro traveled frequently to Israel and NUMEC was a procurement and sales agent for the Israeli ministry of defense. NUMEC was also involved in a partnership called ISORAD, with Israel’s nuclear organization to develop food irradiators which involved sending large packages of radioactive sources to Israel.[10] The approximate 600 pounds of stolen HEU was enough to make over a dozen nuclear bombs with the strength of Hiroshima’s.[11]

Shapiro admitted that he met with the head of Israeli military intelligence in Israel and also admitted that he knew Binyamin Blumberg, the former head of LAKEM, which is Israel’s scientific intelligence agency that oversees its nuclear weapons development. In September 1968, four Israeli intelligence officials met with Shapiro at NUMEC, including Israeli legendary spy Rafi Eitan. As we saw in Part 1B, Eitan was involved with Israel’s sayanim operations and was also a central figure in the Jonathan Pollard spy case discussed below.[12]

Although some FBI investigative documents have finally been released over the last several years, they represent a small proportion of the total documents and have been heavily redacted. Even fewer CIA documents have been released, including those where the CIA acknowledged that they detected uranium at Israel’s Dinoma nuclear bomb facility in 1968 with the same signature of the stolen NUMEC uranium.[13]

Although the facts and evidence of the Israeli nuclear theft is somewhat complex, Glinsky and Mattson provide a good summary of the evidence in their April 2014 article entitled, “Did Israel Steal Bomb-Grade Uranium from the United States?” Following are some of the main reasons why Glinsky and Mattson believe Israel, with the help of Shapiro, stole the NUMEC uranium:[14]

  • NUMEC’s unexplained losses were a significantly larger proportion of its throughput of highly enriched uranium than was the case for other firms that dealt with nuclear materials. Sloppy accounting and lax security made the plant easy to rob without detection.
  • NUMEC had commercial relationships with Israel’s defense and nuclear establishments and regularly made sizeable nuclear shipments to Israel, which at that time were not checked by the AEC.
  • NUMEC’s owners and executives had extremely close ties to Israel, including to high Israeli intelligence and nuclear officials.
  • Israel had strong motives to obtain the highly enriched uranium before it was producing enough plutonium for weapons.
  • High-level Israeli intelligence operatives visited the NUMEC plant. Israeli intelligence organizations were used to running logistically complicated, risky operations to support nuclear weapons development, and it would have been very much out of character for them to pass up an opportunity like this.
  • Records show the CIA believed its 1968 environmental sample taken in Israel evidenced an enrichment level unique to NUMEC’s Portsmouth facility.

As was shown in Part 1C, U.S. media mogul and sayanim for Israel, Arnon Milchan, also assisted Israel in the development of its nuclear arsenal. Milchan was even recruited by LAKEM and Shapiro knew the head of LAKEM, Binyamin Blumberg. Given the above facts and the usual terrible transparency of the FBI and CIA in making available their investigation documents, it’s very likely that Israel did indeed steal the 600 pounds of U.S. uranium with sayanim Shapiro’s help.

Jonathan Pollard (early-to-mid 1980’s)

Jonathan Pollard: Stole 360 cubic feet of military secrets for Israel and did significant security damage to U.S.A. in the process
Jonathan Pollard: Stole 360 cubic feet of military secrets for Israel and did significant security damage to U.S.A. 

Although the Jonathan Pollard (American Jew) spy case happened approximately three decades ago, it is important to note for several reasons. First, it shows Israel’s blatant intent to steal U.S. intelligence information that is critical to U.S. national security. Secondly, it shows that Israel is willing to sell and barter U.S. security secrets to enemies of America as long as it advances at least minor Israeli interests. Thirdly, it shows how easily Israel can recruit U.S. citizens who will basically risks their lives (commit treasonous acts) and who are obviously more loyal to Israel than to the United States of America.

The Jonathan Pollard spy case is one of the most damaging in US history, with Pollard giving his Israeli handlers 360 cubic feet of military documents including a 10 volume code breaking manual that contained parameters of every known signal and how the US collects the signals anywhere in the world. Some of this critical intelligence information found its way to the Soviet Union in exchange for the Soviet’s allowing Jewish individuals to emigrate to Israel, or was exchanged for Jews working in highly sensitive positions in the USSR.[15]

According to ex-Mossad officer Victor Ostrovsky, Pollard first started working as an unpaid sayanim for the Mossad in 1982 but was made inactive in 1984 after he started taking unauthorized risks.  However, Pollard was reactivated shortly afterward by Rafi Eitan, who at the time was advisor on terrorism to the prime minister and also head of LAKEM, the Israeli unit set-up to help further Israel’s nuclear bomb program.[16] Pollards Israeli handlers in the U.S. were Yosef/Joseph Yagur and an AIPAC official who quickly fled to Israel after Pollard was arrested.[17]

Pollard pleaded guilty in 1986 to spying for Israel and is serving a life sentence for his heinous and treasonous crimes. Although it took Israel 13 years to admit their involvement in this crime, Israel now lobbies for Pollard’s release so he can move to Israel and live as a free man. Unfortunately for Pollard and Israel, many top U.S. military and intelligence officials have threatened to resign if Pollard is ever released given the significant harm he (and therefore Israel) did to U.S. national security.

In January 1998, Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist and author wrote an article for the New Yorker Magazine, entitled, “Why Pollard Should Never be Released (The Traitor).” This article is a must read for anyone interested in learning the specifics of the Pollard espionage crimes on behalf of Israel. Following are some interesting facts from the Hersh article:[18]

  • Despite repeated requests from the U.S. for the information stolen by Pollard, Israel has returned or shared little about the stolen intelligence information.
  • Officials who knew the most about Pollard noted that he had done more damage to American national security than was ever made known to the public; for example, he betrayed elements of four major American intelligence systems.
  • In December 1985, a month after Pollard’s arrest, William Casey (CIA Director), told his Israel station chief, “For your information, the Israelis used Pollard to obtain our attack plans against the U.S.S.R., all of it. The coordinates, the firing locations, the sequences. And for guess who, the Soviets?”
  • The Justice Department informed the judge in the case that numerous analyses of Soviet missile systems had been sold by Pollard to Israel, and that the documents included “information from human sources whose identity could be inferred. It is believed that the Soviet’s also obtained this information and that it resulted in a number of U.S. ally spy deaths in the Soviet Union.

Ben-Ami Kadish (1980’s)

Ben-Ami Kadish: Stole U.S. nuclear weapons, Patriot missile, and F-15 documents for Israel
Ben-Ami Kadish: Stole U.S. nuclear weapons, Patriot missile, and F-15 documents for Israel

In another 1980’s Israeli spy case, former U.S. Army engineer, Ben-Ami Kadish (American Jew), provided classified documents on U.S. nuclear weapons, the F-15 fighter plane, and the Patriot missiles to his Israeli handler, Yosef Yagur. Kadish was born in Connecticut but grew up in what the British Mandate of Palestine and fought with the Israeli Haganah.[19] Kadish is another classic example of a sayanim who helped support Israeli intelligence efforts while committing espionage crimes.

Among other counts, Kadish was charged with disclosing documents related to U.S. national security to the Government of Israel and with conspiring to act as an agent for Israel. In 2008, Kadish pleaded guilty to acting as an unregistered agent of Israel and admitted he gave classified documents to Israel. Prosecutors asserted that Kadish had furnished classified American secrets to Yosef Yagur, the same Israeli agent who had handled and received secret documents from Pollard.[20]


Lawrence Franklin / AIPAC Spy Scandal (2005)

Like Pollard, Lawrence Franklin (American Gentile) was convicted of spying on Israel’s behalf. Franklin was a senior Middle East intelligence analyst who was arrested and convicted in 2005 for supplying classified intelligence information on Iran to Israel through the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Israel’s largest and most influential lobby in the United States. It was actually AIPAC that was already under investigation by the FBI for spying for Israel when investigators subsequently snagged Franklin.

Lawrence Franklin: Stole classified military information on Iran for Israel

Also like Pollard, Franklin’s guilty plea means that the evidence surrounding Israel’s spying on the United States will not be made public. However, the conviction shows once again Israel’s blatant intent to spy on the US and to cause harm to U.S. national security. Franklin had previously served as a military attaché at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv Israel and was one of two mid-level Pentagon officials in the Office of the Secretary of Defense responsible for Iran policy in the office’s Northern Gulf directorate.

Franklin worked under Douglas Feith (see Parts 3B, 3C, 4A and 4B) at the DOD and was also a member of the Office of Special Plans (see Part 4B), a DOD group that is now being investigated for the manipulation of intelligence used to support the Iraq war as well as whether they were influenced by the Israeli government. Franklin is also a close associate of Harold Rhode and Michael Ledeen, who accompanied Franklin in his unauthorized back-channel meetings in Rome with Iranian dissidents in 2002.

The criminal charges filed by the FBI alleges Franklin disclosed classified national defense information related to potential attacks on US forces in Iraq to Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, who were employed by the AIPAC. The complaint also alleges that Franklin disclosed classified information to “a foreign official and members of the media,” and a search of Franklin’s home found approximately 83 classified documents.[21]

The indictment revealed that the FBI investigation had been going on since 1999, and suggested that other individuals at AIPAC, the Defense Department, and the Israeli embassy had been involved as well. In his guilty plea, Franklin claims he passed Iran policy documents to the two AIPAC members and that he also passed other classified information to an Israeli official concerning weapons testing and military activities in Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries. Franklin further admitted he knew some of the documents he passed along could be used to the detriment of US national security interests.[22]

In December 2004, the FBI raided the offices of AIPAC and seized computer equipment and files of Howard Kohr, the Executive Director, Richard Fishman, Managing Director, and Renee Rothstein, Communication Director, and Raphael Danziger, Research Director. According to an article published in the Washington Post one week later, all were suspected of being cut-outs, agents who picked up information from Franklin and passed it on to Israel. However, no charges have since been brought against the aforementioned individuals.[23]

Israel’s Unauthorized/Illegal Sales of U.S. Weapons to China (1980’s to Present)

Israel and China: Two of the top three counterintelligence threats against U.S. with long history of illegally dealing U.S. weapons
Israel and China: Two of the top three counterintelligence threats to U.S. with long history of illegally dealing U.S. weapons

Israel has a long record of selling secret U.S. military technology to China against the demands of the U.S.G. which ultimately shows how enormous amounts of arms sales and military aid to Israel contributes to a loss of U.S. control over arms proliferation. Israel is currently the second largest arms supplier to China with only Russia selling more weapons to Beijing. Coincidently, as discussed above, Israel, China and Russia are often viewed by the CIA as the top three counterintelligence threats against America among alleged allies.

In October 1993, then-CIA Director James Woolsey told a Senate committee that Israel had been selling advanced [U.S.] military technology to China for about a decade and is moving to expand its cooperation. The CIA stated that China is seeking to use Israel to obtain the sort of advanced military technology that the U.S. and other Western nations have refused to sell to Beijing.[24] Israel sold at least $2 billion of high-tech military equipment that the U.S. forbids from being exported to China and included technology for the Python missile, the U.S. financed Lavi fighter, and the Patriot anti-missile missile.[25]

Israel was back to making unauthorized military sales to China in 1999 when they tried to sell China the Israeli Phalcon airborne radar system. U.S. officials objected to the sale because they said the system is closely related to the American AWACS, or airborne warning and control system. Israel at first refused to cancel the Chinese contract and it took more than a half year of intense pressure, including unofficial sanctions and threats to withhold certain types of military technology before Israel was forced to abandon the sale. The Clinton administration refused to go as far some members of Congress, who suggested that Israel’s military aid should be cut if the Phalcon was delivered.[26]

The next Israeli weapons breach with China came in 2005 when Israel tried to sell drone parts to China that included significant upgrades to the anti-radar aircraft (the Harpy), possibly including the addition of sensors that could detect radar sites that are turned off.[27]  In response to Israel’s actions, the U.S. imposed sanctions on Israel, including halting cooperation on several sensitive projects and freezing delivery of some military equipment. U.S. officials stated that it had been burned by Israel several times, and this time it has decided to be firm and that even a banana republic would not sign such an agreement.[28]

In 2013, secret U.S. missile and electro-optics technology was once again transferred to China by Israel, prompting anger from the U.S. and causing a senior Israeli defense official to resign. The head of defense exports for the Israeli Defense Ministry resigned after a U.S. investigation concluded that technology, including a miniature refrigeration system manufactured by Ricor and used for missiles and in electro-optic equipment, was sent to China, according to the Israeli newspaper Maariv. Another Israeli news site, Aretz Sheva, reports the U.S. is concerned the technology could ultimately find its way to Iran, which last year sought to buy military equipment from China for its nuclear program.[29]

Israel’s many counterintelligence crimes have caused significant national security and economic damage to the U.S.A. The small sample of crimes discussed above is miniscule when considering there were over 125 FBI investigations of Israel between 1993 to 1995 most of which were quashed because of the political sensitivity involving Israel. Consequently, this number does not even include CIA counterintelligence investigations and where the CIA’s Far East Division considers Israel the most significant counterintelligence threat in their region.[30] If Israel can do this kind of damage to the U.S. time and time again, why would one not assume they were capable of participating in the 9/11 operation that ended up benefiting Israel significantly?

Part 6

By Keith Maart

Part 6: Mossad’s Psychological Warfare Unit and the Use of Sayanim in Worldwide Media and Entertainment Organizations

In his book, Gideon Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad, British intelligence author Gordon Thomas points out that the Mossad’s Psychological Warfare Unit (LAP) works with journalists around the world. According to Thomas, the LAP has built a global network of media contacts and uses them to help spread Mossad propaganda and spin. Thomas uses an example where a terrorist incident in Europe would produce LAP calls to news organization contacts with “background” that was of sufficient content to be worked into a story giving it the spin LAP wanted.[1] These worldwide media contacts would be another example of Mossad’s use of sayanim, or Jewish individuals throughout the world who assist the Mossad in their intelligence operations (see Part 5).[2]

Ex-Mossad agent Ari Ben-Menashe: Mossad called on sayanim publishers to thwart his tell all book
Ex-Mossad agent Ari Ben-Menashe: Mossad called on sayanim publishers to thwart his tell all book

Per Thomas, LAP also calls on foreign journalists to spread disinformation and blacken the character of Israel’s enemies.[3] When ex-Mossad agent and whistleblower Ari Ben-Menashe was writing a tell-all book about the Mossad, the decision was taken by Mossad that every sayan in New York publishing must be alerted to use every possible means to stop the book from being published.[4] Manashe was an Iranian Jew who first came to prominence in 1989 when he was arrested in the U.S. for selling weapons to Iran. After Israel refused to support Ben-Menashe in the U.S.G. case, he started giving interviews to journalists from prison relating to his and Israel’s roles in both the Iran-Contra Affair and the October Surprise.[5]

Thomas also discloses in his book that Jewish U.K. newspaper baron, Robert Maxwell, was (before his death in 1991) a high level Mossad sayanim/operative who was involved in various Israeli covert intelligence operations. Maxwell volunteered his services in 1984 at the end of a meeting with the then-new Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres. According to Thomas, both Maxwell and Peres shared a burning commitment to Zionism and a belief that Israel had a God-given right to exist.

Robert Maxwell: Mossad sayanim and owner of U.K. Mirror and other newspapers
Robert Maxwell: Mossad sayanim and owner of U.K. Mirror and other newspapers

Among other Mossad covert operations, Maxwell is connected to Mossad’s disinformation campaign to discredit Israeli scientist Mordechai Vanunu, who was a whistleblower on Israel’s nuclear bomb program. Other Mossad operations that Maxwell assisted with were money laundering from illegal arms sales and the marketing of an Israeli version of the PROMIS “people finder” software that contained an Israeli trojan/trapdoor.[6]

In the beginning, Mossad would help Maxwell purchase newspapers by lending him money and causing labor disputes and other problems, making the target more vulnerable. Later, the tactic changed where the Maxwell/Mossad group would target in advance a paper that Maxwell wanted to purchase and start it in on a downward course toward bankruptcy. The group would use all available strategies, beginning with workforce agitation and ending with the withdrawal of financing from the paper with the help of bankers and advertisers sympathetic to Israel. Then, once the target was softened up, they sent Maxwell in for the kill.[7]

There are a number of American Jews (sayanim) who are connected to various 9/11 events who have close relationships with top Israeli leaders similar to those of Maxwell’s (see Parts 15 to 18, 28, and 31). Although the evidence on several is strong (see Part 28), none have been exposed so far by a whistleblower, as in Maxwell’s case. However, a high level American sayanim/operative was revealed in 2013 by his own admission. Prominent Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan confirmed in Nov. 2013 that he served as an Israeli spy for decades while also working in Hollywood.[8]

Arnon Milchan and buddy Bibi Netanyahu: Milchan was sayanim in illegal deals that built Israel nuclear bombs
Arnon Milchan and buddy Bibi Netanyahu: Milchan was sayanim in illegal deals that built Israel nuclear bombs

A controversial biography of Milchan published in July 2011, Confidential – The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon,  revealed that Milchan was involved in espionage, big ticket arms-dealing, and obtaining sensitive technology and materials for Israel’s nuclear weapons program. Confidential stated that Milchan was a full-fledged operative for Israel’s top-secret intelligence agency LAKEM, at least through the mid-1980s. His activities included buying components to build and maintain Israel’s nuclear arsenal, and supervising government backed accounts and front companies that financed the special needs of Israel’s intelligence operations outside the country.[9]

LAKEM recruited Milchan in the 1960s, and at one point he operated 30 companies in 17 different countries. Between 1979 and 1983 Milchan’s company, Heli Trading, brokered shipment of 800 nuclear bomb triggers to the Israeli Ministry of Defense. Benjamin Netanyahu is a friend of Milchan and also worked at Heli Trading. Milchan is also good friends with ex-Israeli Prime Minister and President Shimon Peres who said Milchan helped Israel obtain key nuclear equipment and information during the time when Peres was establishing the Dimona nuclear reactor complex as Director-General of the Ministry of Defense.[10] Israel’s nuclear weapons were primarily built using enriched uranium stolen from the U.S. (see Part 7)

The Mossad’s recruiting of Robert Maxwell and Michael Milchan indicates that the Mossad has had sayanim / operatives in top positions of the U.S. and U.K. media and entertainment industries.  Powerful and influential people like Maxwell and Milchan shows that the Mossad’s tentacles reach across many different social and economic levels from the journalist who write or tell the story to the people who run the companies. The Maxwell and Milchan cases also reveal that the sayanim can be very loyal to Israel and will even conduct illegal acts for the benefit of Israel..

Gordon Thomas reports that the Mossad has recruited sayanim from the journalist and publishing professions and that there are an estimated 15,000 sayanim in the U.S. alone.[11] With those kind of numbers, how many sayanim are in the U.S. media industry and what is their ability to manipulate and cover-up information that is negative to Israel and the Mossad? Of course the answer is considerable and that is exactly what the media has done with the many Israeli connections to the 9/11 attacks.

Although stating that Jews control the media is often regarded as anti-Semitic, there are a considerable number of Jews at all levels of the U.S. media industry; however, it’s another thing to show the evidence that there are a significant number of Jews in the U.S. media. In what is probably the most comprehensive list that this author has viewed, Christian Reverend Ted Pike of comprised a list of Jews in U.S. media.[12] Pike’s 2012 list is actually an update of a list that was first published on the Jewish website, Judaism Online.[13] Pike’s list is not close to being all-inclusive, but even with Pike’s sample of names, it’s clear that there are numerous Jews in the media. If only a fraction of those were Mossad sayanim, or even just had a dual loyalty to Israel, the media influence for Israel and the Mossad could be immense.

Israel’s use of sayanim and other Jewish individuals to assist in Israeli intelligence operations is documented in the CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence and by such intelligence authors as Ostrovsky and Gordon. The 9/11 evidence indicates that a number of Jewish sayanim were used in the false flag operation (see Parts 28, and 30 to 33). However, not all the sayanim in the 9/11 operation were privy to the entire operation and many of them had compartmentalized functions. Nevertheless, the evidence also indicates that the Israeli Mossad, as handlers for the sayanim, had a central role in the 9/11 operation (see Parts 19 to 27).

Part 5: Sayanim: Israeli Intelligence’s Use of Jewish Individuals and Institutions in the United States and throughout the World


Israeli intelligence’s use of Jewish individuals (sayanim) and institutions throughout the world is a fact documented by several highly credible sources. The CIA is clearly aware of Mossad’s use of Zionist and Jewish individuals and organizations to leverage and aid its worldwide intelligence operations. The CIA’s Assessment of Israeli Intelligence (see Part 2) had this to say about Mossad’s use of sayanim:

“Unofficial Zionist organizations based in Israel and Jewish communities throughout the world also give aid to Israeli operations when needed… Individuals working under deep or illegal cover are normally charged with penetrating objectives that require a long-range, more subtle approach, or with activities in which the Israeli Government can never admit complicity.”[1]

Individuals working under deep or illegal cover often take on different identities which are commonly referred to as legends in intelligence jargon. The two deep cover operations by Israeli spies Eli Cohen and Johann Lotz discussed in the Israeli Intel Assessment in Part 2 shows how Israeli intelligence has planted operatives several years in advance of executing an operation. The same could have been done in the 9/11 operation, particularly as it applies to the three alleged pilot hijackers from Hamburg, Germany (see Parts 3, 4, and 20).

The CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence also shows that Israel uses Jewish individuals and organizations throughout the world to achieve its intelligence objectives. It has been confirmed by several other highly credible sources, that Israel uses Jewish/Zionist individuals in the U.S. to aid in their intelligence matters and operations. Thus, the use of U.S. Jewish individuals and institutions in the 9/11 false flag operation is likely, given all the other Israeli connections to the attacks (see Parts 28 to 33).

Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky: Mossad has a "passport factory" to create and doctor passports
Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky: Exposed Mossad’s use of sayanim in 1990

In his 1990 book, By Way of Deception, ex-Mossad case officer (“katsa”) Victor Ostrovsky divulged for the first time publicly Israel’s use of sayan (pl. sayanim) to assist in their worldwide intelligence operations. According to Ostrovsky, a sayan (Hebrew for “assistant”) is a Mossad operative recruited from among the Jewish Diaspora to help the Mossad with operations outside Israel, utilizing the capacity of their own nationality to procure assistance.”[2] The idea is to have a pool of people available when needed who can provide services but will keep quiet about them out of loyalty to Israel. Ostrovsky provides the following information and insight into the world of the Mossad sayanim:[3]

  • Mossad regards the whole world outside Israel as a target, including Europe and the United States.
  • Sayanim must be 100 percent Jewish. They live abroad, and although they are not Israeli citizens, many are reached through their relatives in Israel.
  • There are thousands of sayanim in the world. In London alone, there are about 2,000 who are active, and another 5,000 on the list.
  • Suppose during an operation a katsa (Mossad agent) suddenly had to come up with an electronics store as cover (i.e., a front company). A call to a sayan in the same business could bring 50 television sets, 200 VCR’s, – whatever was needed – from his warehouse to your building and in next to no time you’d have a store with $3 or $4 million worth of stock in it.
  • Some business sayanim have a bank of 20 operators answering phones, typing letters, faxing messages, all as a front for the Mossad.
  • Katsas in the stations (offices) are in charge of the sayanim, and most active sayanim will be visited by a katsa once every three months or so.

Ostrovsky’s book also provides important and pertinent insight into the Mossad’s New York and Washington units, which are simply called “Al” (Hebrew for “above” or “on top”). According to Ostrovsky, these units are so secretive, and so separate from the main organization, that the majority of Mossad employees don’t even know what they do, and do not have access to their computer files. But they exist and employ between 24 and 27 veteran field personnel, three as active katsas. These Al units report directly to the head of Mossad, and unlike normal Mossad stations, they do not operate from inside the Israeli embassy. Their stations are located in safe houses or apartments. The Al katsas are among the most experienced in Mossad and often carry illegal fake U.S. passports. They get away with this because the quality of their documents is first class.[4]

Meir Amit:  Stated that he created the sayanim secret force known as "Israel's invisible army"
Meir Amit: Ex-Mossad chief who stated that he created the sayanim secret force known as “Israel’s invisible army”

Ostrovsky further states that “The Mossad still doesn’t admit to the existence of Al. Inside the institute, it’s said that the Mossad does not work in the U.S. but most Mossad people know that Al exists, even if they don’t know exactly what it does.”[5]Coincidently, at least two of the Dancing Israelis arrested in the New York area on Sept. 11, and discussed in detail in Part 21, were confirmed Mossad operatives, most likely working with the very secretive New York Al unit. It’s very likely that Mossad’s New York and Washington Al units were the group who headed Mossad’s participation in the 9/11 operation.

In Ostrovsky’s second (1994) book, The Other Side of Deception, he discusses how the Mossad’s terrorism seminars to law enforcement personnel in other countries are used as recruiting tools, and estimated that such operations brought Mossad hundreds, if not thousands, of law enforcement recruits in the United States alone.[6] Ostrovsky also states that Mossad has more than three thousand sayanim in Great Britain and maintains over a hundred safe houses in the Greater London area alone.[7] If the Mossad had that many safe houses in London, how many did they have in New York, which is larger and more strategic stronghold?

An important point made in Ostrovsky’s two books is that certain elements of the Mossad act independently and often illegally with no accountability to the Prime Minister of Israel or to anyone else. In his prologue to By Way of Deception, Ostrovsky states, “The Mossad, being the intelligence body entrusted with the responsibility of plotting the course for the leaders at the helm of the nation, has betrayed that trust. Plotting on its own behalf, and for petty self-serving reasons, it has set the nation on a collision course with all-out war.”[8] Indeed, these were the characteristics of the Mossad that led to their involvement in the 9/11 operation.

Gordon Thoms: UK intelligence author with inside to Israeli intelligence
Gordon Thoms: UK intelligence author with inside to Israeli intelligence

British intelligence author Gordon Thomas confirms Mossad’s worldwide use of sayanim in his 2007 updated book, Gideon’s Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad. Much of Thomas’s information comes from discussions with high level ex-Mossad agent Rafi Eitan and from ex-Mossad chief (1963-68) Meir Amit. Amit states, “While their allegiance to their birth country cannot be doubted, each sayan recognizes a greater loyalty: the mystical one to Israel and a need to help protect it from its enemies.” Amit stated that he created the sayanim secret force, known as Israel’s “invisible army,” to protect Israel’s many interests in the U.S.[9]

Thomas states that in 1998, there were over four thousand sayanim in Britain and almost four times as many in the United States. The Mossad was paying several hundred million dollars a month maintaining its “assets,” paying the expenses of sayanim, running safe houses, providing logistics, and covering operational costs.[10]

Rafi Eitan: Sayanim handler and Israeli spymaster who has hurt the U.S. often
Rafi Eitan: Sayanim handler and Israeli spymaster who has hurt the U.S. often

Rafi Eitan is an ex-Mossad and Israeli intelligence officer whose actions have harmed U.S. interests time and time again, and is a central figure in the mid-1980s Jonathan Pollard spy case, and also in the theft of U.S.-manufactured enriched uranium for Israel’s nuclear program in the 1960s (see Part 7). He confided to Thomas that by April 2004, and traveling on Israeli diplomatic passports, he had made several secret trips to the U.S. to supervise the mobilization of thousands of sayanim, many of whom received weapons (ordnance?) training during their military careers. Others had worked in U.S. military intelligence and a number were currently employed by police forces across the country.[11]

Although Amit and Eitan both give examples of relatively trivial services that sayanim may perform, it is likely that they downplayed the importance and more critical functions that they provide. Their statements to Thomas were almost certainly disinformation. Indeed, the discussion of two powerful and influential sayanim in Part 6, namely, Robert Maxwell and Aron Milchan, shows that high level sayanim can be counted on to perform illegal and immoral acts that benefit Israel.

Parts 7 to 9 will show that U.S. sayanim have assisted Israel in previous counterintelligence crimes, false flag attacks, and in other illegal operations. Parts 15 to 18 and 28 to 33 will discuss a number or U.S. sayanim who were likely involved in the 9/11 false flag operation. However, not all these individuals had knowledge of the entire operation and many were only counted on to perform compartmentalized functions. Part 11 will show that many U.S. Jews have a strong dual loyalty to Israel and have been denied security clearance because they were Jewish and Israel’s known history of using sayanim in the U.S. Part 12 will then discuss how several top Jewish officials in the Bush White House were previously investigated for spying on Israel’s behalf.

Part 3: Evidence Suggests that Alleged 9/11 Pilot Hijacker Ziad Jarrah was a Deep Cover Operative for Israel

Author’s Note: This article provides significant new evidence and leads relating to alleged 9/11 pilot hijacker Ziad Jarrah that contradict many of the facts about him as described in the 9/11 Commission Report and other U.S.G. documents. The article is meant to be an Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) tool and readers are encouraged to leave comments below that may provide additional evidence and leads or to contact the author with such information (see Contact page). Any referral information for friends or family living in Lebanon who might be interested in helping with the research and investigation would also be appreciated. Lastly, there are over 70 significant endnotes/references that provide substantial information and support to the body of the article.

Israel has been active in recruiting spies within Lebanon for a long time. A February 2010 article in The Economist stated that Lebanon’s security service claimed that they broke up no fewer than 25 Israeli spy rings since November 2008. The arrests are said to have exposed a series of agents for Israel, ranging from a retired Lebanese army general who ran a housecleaning service to a garage owner who specialized in supplying Hezbollah with vehicles that he secretly fitted with tracking devices.[1]

Even as far back as 1979, the CIA recognized that Israel found Lebanon to be a desirable country to recruit spies mainly because of its ethnic and religious diversity. According to the Israeli Intel Assessment (see Part 2),The fact that Lebanon has a mix of Christians, Druze, and Muslim population has made that country attractive for intelligence projects and Israel has covert assets and has run operations in Lebanon.”[2]

Ali Jarrah: Ziad's cousin and confessed and convicted spy for Israel.
Ali Jarrah: Ziad’s cousin and confessed and convicted spy for Israel

In a strange coincidence, alleged 9/11 pilot hijacker Ziad Jarrah from Lebanon had two Lebanese cousins, Ali and Yusef/Yousef Jarrah (brothers), who were spies/operatives for Israel’s Mossad at the time of the 9/11 attacks. In late 2008, Ali confessed to being a spy for the Mossad since 1983, providing Israel with photographs and reports of Palestinian and Syrian groups and of Hezbollah.[3] Ali spoke with his Israeli handlers by satellite phone and was thought to have a video camera that was also connected via satellite to Israel.[4]

It’s estimated that Ali received more than $300,000 for his work for Israel, an amount that made him well-off in Lebanon. Around 2002/03, he built a three-story villa that is by far the grandest house in a modest village of low concrete dwellings. Ali was apparently a valued spy for Israel in that his Israeli handlers called him at the start of the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah to reassure him that his village would be sparred and to tell him that he should stay at home. Ali said he tried to stop working for the Mossad but that the Israelis would not let him.[5]

The Mossad provided Ali with high tech cameras and listening devices and would sometimes send him to Belgium and Italy where he would receive an Israeli passport for flights back to Israel to be debriefed at length by his Israeli handlers.[6] As will be described in more detail in Part 20, Ziad Jarrah took at least six trips to Europe and the Middle East from the U.S. in the year before Sept. 11.[7]

Coincidentally,  when Ziad Jarrah was allegedly in the midst of planning the 9/11 crime of the century, his Lebanese cousins were working as spies for Israel. Ali even posed as a member of the militant Palestinian group called Fatah-Intifada for some time so he could infiltrate the group for Israel’s benefit.[8] Could Ziad have done the same in infiltrating al-Qaeda for the Mossad’s benefit and were his many trips back to Europe before 9/11 just cover for meetings with Israeli handlers?

Marj Lebanon and the Very Likely Connections between Ziad Jarrah and His Israeli Spy Cousins

A February 2009 New York Times (“NYT”) article stated about the coincidence of Ziad and Ali being cousins: “The men [Ziad and Ali Jarrah] were 20 years apart in age [actually 16 years] and do not appear to have known each other well.”[9] The NYT article obviously made a subjective statement that is not supported or based on any specific fact other than the cousins’ (incorrect)  age difference. Not surprisingly, there was no investigative work done by the NYT  to determine the past relationship of Ziad Jarrah with his Mossad operative cousins. Unfortunately for the NYT, its conclusion about the coincidence is not supported by the actual evidence.

The tiny town of Marj, Lebanon - "Where everybody knows your name."
The tiny town of Marj, Lebanon – “Where everybody knows your name.”

Ali lived in a small Lebanese Bekka Valley town by the name of Marj/al-Marej, where he worked as an administrator at a nearby school.[10]  Marj is 30 miles east of Beirut, 15 miles west of the Syrian border, and 30 miles north of the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. Marj’s size is only 7.5 square miles, has 1,800 dwelling units, a probable population of about 10,000 to 15,000, and is a small suburban/rural type town.[11] The Bekka Valley area where Maj is located produces much of Lebanon’s fruits and vegetables and is also home to many of its well-to-do.[12]

An April 2002 FBI report states that Ziad was born in al-Marej.[13] Shockingly, neither The 9/11 Commission Report nor any FBI reports state where Ziad grew-up and include only one sentence on Ziad’s alleged 21 years in Lebanon.[14] An equally pathetic CIA report adds little more stating Jarrah was sent to the best, most expensive Christian schools in Beirut and that Jarrah’s family and press reports claim that Jarrah drank alcohol, partied, and did not hold any extreme religious beliefs before leaving for Germany.[15]

According to the Wall Street Journal and Boston Globe, Ziad was raised in the Bekka Valley.[16] However, there are conflicting sources that state that Ziad grew up in nearby Beirut and that his parents would drive him to Marj “nearly every weekend of his childhood and adolescence” where it appears his parents had at least a second home.[17] It also appears that Ziad attended Christian boarding schools in Beirut where he may have lived during the weekdays.[18] In any case, Ziad spent a substantial amount of time in Marj while growing up where he would have likely had contact with his cousins Ali and Jusef.

Was the FBI, CIA and The 9/11 Commission fooled and/or confused about Jarrah’s past and is that why The 9/11 Commission only included one sentence on his first 21 years in Lebanon? Or did they just know that to disclose any information on Jarrah’s early life would open themselves up to more questions and doubts about Jarrah’s participation and role in the false flag operation?

Ziad & SalemPer the 9/11 Commission’s one sentence, Jarrah came from an affluent family and attended private Christian schools while growing up.[19] An October 2001, article in the Los Angeles Times indicates that Ziad apparently attended high school in France and that he and his cousins from Marj came from a non-religious and “close-knit family.”[20] The Times reports that Ziad (right in the photo) spent a lot of time at a cousin’s house in Marj and that he was close to a cousin named Salim Jarrah (left in the photo) who was Ziad’s age and who might even be Ali and Yusef’s younger brother.[21] Ziad and Salim both emigrated  to Germany together in 1996 at the age of 21 and at a time when Ali Jarrah had been an embedded spy for Israel for 13 years.

A friend of Ziad’s in Dusseldorf (Mahmoud Ali) told the LA Times that the Jarrah family is the most influential family in Marj and included Jamal, a banker, Nesim, a senior customs officer, and the fathers of Ziad and cousin Salim, Samir and Gazi, respectively, high ranking officials in the Lebanese social security system.[22] However, the Wall Street Journal stated that Ziad’s father was a civil servant who earned about $21,000 a year and was giving Ziad a $1,500 a month allowance.[23] (Note: the LA Times stated that Ziad received $2,000/month from his parents when he moved to Florida).

Even as a high ranking official in the Lebanese government, that would not make Ziad’s father “affluent,” as described by the 9/11 Commission. How did Samir Jarrah afford to send his three children to private boarding schools (Ziad had two sisters) and give Ziad an allowance of $2,000/month, could Samir Jarrah also have been on Israel’s payroll in the same way Ali and Yusef Jarrah were?

It appears that the Jarrah family in the small town of Marj was very close, and it also appears that Ali probably helped recruit his younger brother Yusef to be a spy for Israel. The Mossad obviously felt comfortable working with members of the Jarrah family and they had an easy recruiting target in the younger cousin Ziad.

The April 2002 FBI Report on Ziad Jarrah Surfaces Other New Important Evidence

Among dozens of hijacker related documents, The 9/11 Commission files included an April 2002 FBI Summary relating to Ziad Jarrah.[24] This FBI document shows that Jarrah was in Marj for 10 days in March 2001.[25] Strangely, neither The 9/11 Commission Report nor the FBI Hijacker Timeline (“FBI HJ Timeline”)[26] show Jarrah in Marj at this time. However, the FBI HJ Timeline does include 13 redacted events in March 2001 that may include how Jarrah got to and from Marj.

The redact happy FBI gets caught up in another lie
The FBI screws up and forgets to redact that jarrah was in Marj in March 2001

A detailed staff report by the 9/11 Commission on terrorists’ travel describes six other international trips by Jarrah in the year before Sept. 11, but it fails to mention the fact that he was in Marj in March 2001, despite having the FBI’s record of him being there.[27] Although the FBI HJ Timeline shows that Jarrah allegedly checked into a suburban Atlanta hotel on March 15 for two weeks under an alias, there’s no other events for Jarrah between Feb 25, and March 30, 2001[28] (Note: Jarrah allegedly used the alias, Ziad Samir, when checking into the hotel which does not show up as an FBI alias for him).[29] This author also found no other confirming evidence that Jarrah was in Atlanta from March 15 to March 28.

Why did The 9/11 Commission not include the FBI evidence that Jarrah was in Marj for 10 days in March 2001 and why did the FBI delete or redact these events from the HJ Timeline? Did Jarrah meet with his Israeli spy cousins while in the tiny town of Marj? The more likely question is, how could he not have?

Jarrah’s FBI report also shows that he had a cousin in Detroit and possibly two others in Springfield, Massachusetts (names redacted). While the FBI report states there were no alleged contacts between Ziad and his cousin in Detroit, it is silent on whether there was contact with his possible cousins in Springfield. Strangely, the FBI report notes that the individuals in Springfield may even be Jarrah’s brother, suggesting a possible close relationship between Ziad and the Springfield brothers.[30] Who were these Springfield individuals and could Jarrah have had other Israeli spy cousins in the U.S. assisting him in the covert operation?

The FBI report also notes four instances where Jarrah was basically shown to be on two flights at the same time and the FBI does not resolve the discrepancy. One flight actually showed Ziad Jarrah as the pilot of a private plane which coincides with several mainstream media reports that Jarrah had a German pilot’s license.[31] The flight that showed Jarrah as the pilot just happened to be from Frankfurt Germany to Tampa on October 29, 2000.[32] The FBI, CIA, and The 9/11 Commission do not mention this issue.

The duplicate flights do not appear to be a case of double booking and appear to be instances where a Ziad Jarrah was confirmed to be on two separate flights. However, it appears that the FBI once again either deleted or redacted the conflicting evidence that did not fit their story from the FBI HJ Timeline. This information suggests that there probably was a doppelganger Ziad Jarrah involved in the 9/11 operation (Note: a summary of the four flight discrepancies are provided in endnote 41).[33]

Jarrah's U.S. Student Visa: Miraculously found in UA 93 wreckage along with passport and debit card
Jarrah’s U.S. Student Visa: Miraculously found in UA 93 wreckage along with passport and Atta’s letter on the 9/11 plan

Lastly, the FBI report shows that Jarrah’s passport and debit card were allegedly found either at the UA 93 crash site “or” were obtained by some other means.[34] [35] [36] In addition, three Saudi ID’s were also allegedly found with at least one belonging to another alleged hijacker on UA 93 (Note: there were no names associated with the other two ID’s but there were two other alleged Saudi hijackers on UA 93).[37] In what might be the biggest coincidence of all, a letter from Mohammed Atta disclosing the plans of the 9/11 operation was also allegedly found at the crash site. This was the same letter that was astonishingly found in Mohammed Atta’s luggage that just happened to miss one of his two flights on Sept. 11.[38] [39]

What was surprisingly missing from the list of crash site evidence was Jarrah’s charred U.S. student visa that was reported as being found at the crash site by the media and by The 9/11 Commission.[40] Why this crucial piece of evidence is not mentioned in the FBI report is inexplicable and indicates it was not found at the crash site as reported by the 9/11 Commission. Indeed, a comparison of Jarrah’s original student visa with the charred one does not appear to match up, as the writing at the bottom of the visas do not appear to be similarly aligned with the photos in the visas (see endnote __ for a detailed explanation of the discrepancy).[41] Regardless, U.S. or Israeli intelligence would have no problem creating any duplicate document.

There are many questionable facts and circumstances relating to the UA 93 crash site which basically consisted of a huge crater in the ground with little distinguishable plane parts and debris.[42] [43]The alleged discovery of Jarrah’s passport, student visa, and Atta’s 9/11 letter reeks of being planted evidence meant to implicate Jarrah as one of the alleged hijackers on UA 93 and to provide support for the U.S.G.’s absurd 9/11 theory. Indeed, Jarrah’s many damning FBI report findings casts additional serious doubts on the government’s 9/11 story and helps support the more likely theory that 9/11 was almost certainly a false flag operation.

Other Significant Evidence Indicating a Doppelganger Ziad Jarrah in the 9/11 Operation

The contradictions and discrepancies with the Official 9/11 Story concerning Ziad Jarrah are revealing and significant. An excellent and well referenced article by 9/11 author and journalist Paul Thompson in Sept. 2002, entitled “The Two Ziad Jarrahs” shows that there were two similar looking Ziad Jarrah’s in different places at the same time on several occasions (including living in the U.S. five years before the U.S.G. said the first entered the country) and that Ziad’s real life persona was nothing like the Islamic fundamentalist portrayed by the 9/11 Commission. Thompson also shows several timeline discrepancies in Jarrah’s alleged travels and activities and that a slew of family and friends who knew him best said he never exhibited devout Muslim tendencies nor did he ever express extremist ideology.[44]

The many faces of Ziad Jarrah
The many faces of Ziad Jarrah

An October 2006 article in Alex Jones’ describes similar face and place discrepancies of Ziad Jarrah indicating that there was probably more than one Ziad Jarrah involved in the 9/11 operation. The photos to the left shows at least two, and possibly three, different Ziad Jarrah’s.[45] A highly questionable video of Jarrah and Mohammed Atta meeting with Osama Bin Laden might also suggest a third Ziad Jarrah. The video was allegedly found by the U.S. military in Afghanistan in late 2001 but for some unexplained reason was not released until October 2006. The article provides significant evidence that this video was almost certainly a fraud.[46] Following are sources of the photos and video (left to right, top to bottom):

  • Jarrah #1: Photo of Ziad Jarrah taken in 1996 (BBC).[47]
  • Jarrah #2: FBI photo of Ziad Jarrah.[48]
  • Jarrah #3: Charred U.S. student visa photo of Ziad Jarrah found in the wreckage of UA 93.[49]
  • Jarrah #4: A passport photo of Ziad Jarrah (CNN).[50]
  • Jarrah #5: Non-charred student visa photo of Ziad Jarrah.[51]
  • Jarrah #6: Video of Ziad Jarrah and Mohammed Atta from January 2000.[52]

The visual evidence along with the above two articles and some of the evidence from Ziad Jarrah’s April 2002 FBI report indicates that there were probably two Ziad Jarrah’s involved in the 9/11 false flag operation. This fact implies that there was a doppelganger Ziad Jarrah that occasionally took on Jarrah’s identity and that he most likely had a set of fraudulent travel documents like passports and visas and probably other false identification documents.

There are a couple other dubious facts involving Ziad Jarrah’s travel documents. First, another FBI document in the 9/11 Commission files shows that Ziad Jarrah coincidently had a Lebanese and a German passport that had the identical number 1619505.[53] Jarrah’s possession of a German passport was confirmed by one of his landlords (Charles Lisa) in Ft. Lauderdale who stated that Jarrah and alleged hijacker Ahmed Haznawi both provided German passports as proof of identity; however, Lisa said that Ziad went by the name Jarrahi Ziad.[54] Neither Jarrah nor Haznawi were German citizens and therefore should not have had German passports.

Did al-Qaeda have the resources to produce the counterfeit documents, and if not, what other group or institution would have the capability of making such high quality fraudulent documents?

Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky: Mossad has a "passport factory" to create and doctor passports
Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky: Mossad has a “passport factory” to create and doctor passports

Per the CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence discussed in Part 2, Israel’s Mossad has a reputation for forging passports and other identity documents of Arab and Western countries.[55] According to ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, the Mossad has its own “passport factory” to create or doctor passports for use in intelligence operations. Ostrovsky says there is a company within Mossad headquarters that is dedicated to just forging passports. They create various types of papers, every kind of ink. It’s a very expensive research department but he says the manufactured passports are almost identical to the originals.[56]

In his 1990 book, “By Way of Deception,” Ostrovsky states that the Mossad even forges U.S. passport documents. According to Ostrovsky, The New York and Washington Mossad agents are among the most experienced in the institute and often carry illegal fraudulent U.S. passports. The Mossad gets away with this because the quality of their documents are top grade.[57] If the Mossad can duplicate other countries passports so easily, including the U.S.A.’s, how difficult can it be to produce fraudulent driver’s licenses and other lesser critical identification documents?

The Many Contradictions and Dubious Statements of Aysel Senguen

The 9/11 Commission’s evidence of Ziad Jarrah’s alleged Islamic radicalization comes primarily from a secret July 2002 German intelligence report.[58] The sources for the German intelligence report are Jarrah’s alleged girlfriend or wife, Aisel/Aysel Senguen, and several other unnamed associates of Jarrah’s from Germany.[59] Although the 9/11 Commission Report states that Senguen said Jarrah began showing signs of radicalization around late 1998 (i.e., spoke increasingly about religion, grew a full beard and started praying regularly), this statement is contradicted by her earlier accounts that he was not a religious fundamentalist. Even The 9/11 Commission Report stated that “Jarrah hardly seemed like a likely candidate for becoming an Islamic extremist,” and that “His motivation for the [9/11 attack] decision remains unclear.”[60]

Aysel Senguen: A pathological liar or Jarrah's European cover story.
Aysel Senguen: A pathological liar or Jarrah’s European cover story.

In an interview given to German police on Sept. 13, 2001 (“German Police Report”), Senguen never once stated that Jarrah showed any signs of Islamic extremism during their five year relationship.[61]  According to the Oct. 23, 2001 LA Times article, the only somewhat questionable thing she said about Jarrah is that he became more conservative and possessive in the recent months before 9/11. Conveniently, Senguen went into a witness protection program after the German police interview and would not talk directly with reporters afterward. Several other friends and family members interviewed by the LA Times also stated that Jarrah was non-religious and partied and drank alcohol.[62]

Per the German Police Report, Senguen first stated that she received a call from Jarrah around 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 11, and then subsequently stated, “It was rather 3 p.m.” Strangely, even 3 p.m. Germany time is 9 a.m. Newark time and Jarrah’s flight UA 93 was scheduled to take-off at 8 a.m. and it pushed back from the gate a minute later (note: Jarrah did not allegedly check in until 7:39 a.m. and there is no visual evidence he did). However, the flight was delayed on the ground due to plane traffic and did not take-off until 8:42 a.m.  Senguen stated that the quality of the call was good and that there was no background noise.[63]

Thus, Jarrah supposedly called Senguen from a cell phone in a very quiet plane very shortly before it took-off and after sitting on the tarmac for nearly an hour.  Consequently, the time Senguen allegedly received the call from Jarrah was contradicted by two subsequent reports that put the call approximately 2 hours earlier and had Jarrah calling from an airport pay phone.[64] Senguen just happened to be in the hospital (to have her tonsils removed) when she received Jarrah’s call on Sept. 11, and it is does not appear that German or U.S. authorities ever tried to confirm the time of the alleged call from Jarrah.

Senguen German Poice Interview: 9/11 phone call testimony and "We never met with anyone else [for 12 days] at the time"
Senguen German Poice Interview: 9/11 phone call testimony and “We never met with anyone else [for 12 days] at the time”
A couple of other incidents involving Senguen gives rise to Jarrah being in two places at the same time only five to six weeks before Sept. 11. According to the FBI HJ Timeline and the 9/11 Commission Report, Jarrah flew from Miami to Dusseldorf on July 25, on a one-way ticket purchased by Senguen.[65] However, the April 2002 FBI report on Jarrah states, “Conflicting information indicates that Jarrah left the United States on 25 July 2001 on either KLM 622 (Atlanta, GA to Amsterdam, NL) or Continental 36 (Newark, NJ to Dusseldorf, Germany).”[66] The FBI never explains why there are two conflicting flights that day but the FBI HJ Timeline shows that Jarrah took the Newark to Dusseldorf flight. [67]

The second conflicting event is even more damning to Jarrah and Senguen. According to Senguen’s interview with the German police, Jarrah arrived in Bochum, Germany (30 miles from Dusseldorf) at the end of July and they spent approximately 10 to 14 days (actually 12 days)  together and never met with anyone else during that whole time.[68] According to the FBI HJ Timeline and 9/11 Commission Report, Senguen bought a one-way ticket for Jarrah back to the United States on August 3, for a flight from Dusseldorf to Miami on August 5, 2001.[69]

According to the LA Times and a third party account of a conversation with Senguen, she stated that Jarrah returned to Florida after less than a week in Germany, missing the Beirut wedding of his older sister Dania on August 2, 2001, because he was supposedly scheduled to take a test for a pilot’s license at the Florida Flight Training Center (“FFTC”) in Venice, Florida, on July 30, 2001.[70] However, there are no other sources confirming that Jarrah received a pilot’s license from the FFTC at this time, but there were other media reports stating that one of Jarrah’s two sisters got married in Lebanon on August 2, and that he did not attend the wedding.[71] It is this author’s opinion that Jarrah probably did not return to the U.S. early, at least under his own travel documents.

Ramzi Binalsibh: Key 9/11 witness tortured and diagnosed with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.
Ramzi Binalsibh: Key 9/11 witness tortured and diagnosed with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.

The only other evidence that U.S. investigators have suggesting Jarrah was in Germany at this time is a December 2002 interrogation interview of alleged Hamburg al-Qaeda cell member Ramzi Binalshibh where he allegedly stated he picked Jarrah up at the Dusseldorf airport and met with him again a few days later.[72] Binalshibh was captured in Sept. 2002, and held in secret CIA prisons for four years where he was tortured for testimony and is now delusional with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.[73] There is no other evidence that Jarrah met with any other al-Qaeda members during this time and the FBI HJ Timeline does not show any alleged meetings between Jarrah and Binalshibh.[74]

There are significant questions as to why Ziad Jarrah would take a twelve-day love holiday in the final six weeks before the most complex terrorism operation in history. Even more questions are raised by the dubious and contradicting evidence discussed above and whether Senguen may have also been a covert asset providing cover and a reason for Jarrah’s many trips to Germany before the 9/11 attacks. Like his spy cousin Ali Jarrah, did Ziad receive an Israeli passport in Germany that allowed him to fly to Israel under a different name to be debriefed and instructed by his Israeli handlers? Did he secretly go back to Marj in July/August 2001 as he did in March 2001, where he likely had contact with his cousins who were spies for Israel?

Why did Senguen contradict herself about Jarrah’s religiousness and the time she received his call on Sept. 11? Is it really plausible that Jarrah and Senguen spent twelve days together without meeting one single person, including Ziad’s Dusseldorf friend Mahmoud Ali (Note: Senguen also stated Jarrah knew no one in Bochum, but he knew Ali and allegedly met Binalshibh)? So who was lying, Senguen or Binalshibh, and why did either lie? Could Senguen have been handled by the same people who were likely handling Jarrah on his trips to Dusseldorf?  Part 20 will discuss and provide further evidence of other connections that Ziad Jarrah may have had with Israeli intelligence in Hamburg and the U.S.A.

Note: The 9/11 Commission Report states that Ziad Jarrah was born in Mazraa, which contradicts the April 2002 FBI report and the FBI Hijacker Timeline. Also, several media reports state that the Jarrah family was from Marj including the October 23, 2001 LA Times  article that stated Ziad spent much of his childhood and adolescence in Marj (see endnote __).

[14]  The 9/11 Commission Report, July 22, 2004, Section 5.3, page 163.

Note: The 9/11 Commission Report includes only one sentence of Ziad’s alleged 21 years in Lebanon, stating, “Ziad Jarrah was born on May 11, 1975, in Mazraa, Lebanon, and came from an affluent family and attended private, Christian schools.

[15]  The Plot and the Plotters, Central Intelligence Agency, June 2, 2003, page 28,

Note: The CIA report includes about 2 paragraphs on Jarrah’s 21 years in Lebanon and includes a seven line redaction or about one-half of the information. It also states that according to Jarrah’s family and press reports, Jarrah was non-religious and drank but only one individual (a redacted name) said he was extremely religious.

Similarly, the FBI report mentions nothing about Jarrah’s alleged 21 years in Lebanon and starts his biography with his moving to Germany in 1996. Oddly, the FBI report states that Ziad’s sister graduated from the American University in Beirut, but it does not state where Ziad went to school in Lebanon.

[16] The September 25, 2001 Boston Globe stated, “Growing up in the Bekka Valley – a rich swath of green fields between two mountain ranges – Ziad Jarah wanted for little.” Reprinted at:

The September 18, 2001 Wall Street Journal stated, “The family [Ziad’s parents] lives in a two-story, U-shaped family home next to the mosque on the potholed main street of a dusty predominantly Sunni Muslim town some 60 miles east of Beirut.

Note: The LA Times states, “Although Jarrah spent his first 14 years in war-torn Beirut, his family insists he was shielded from the hardships and showed no interest in politics. Jarrah attended Christian schools, graduating from a French high school, where he became fluent in French and English.” Although other sources have suggested that Jarrah may have went to a private high school in Beirut, this article appears to imply that he may have went to a high school in France since he only spent the first 14 years of his life in Beirut. None of the schools Jarrah attended have been confirmed by official U.S.G. sources.

[21]  Carol J. Williams,” Los Angeles Times, Ibid.

Note: Although this article does not specifically state that Ziad and Ali Jarrah are cousins, other information in the article makes it apparent that they are and that they are from a close-knit family. Salim Jarrah is clearly Ziad’s cousin and is from the small Lebanon town of Marj/Maraj, the same town Ali and Yusef Jarrah are from. The article also suggests that Ziad’s father Samir Jarrah, and Salim’s father Nesim Jarrah, are the only two male siblings in Lebanon, indicating Nesim must thus be the father of Ali and Yusef. There’s no evidence to suggest that Ali and Yusef Jarrah are not the sons of Nesim Jarrah or the brothers of Salim Jarrah. This article also points to many discrepancies of the character and events of Ziad Jarrah compared to the information provided by the US government.

[22]  Carol Williams, Los Angeles Times, Ibid.

Note: Although not stated, it appears that Samir, Gazi, Jamal, and Nesim may all be brothers as it was stated once in the article that Jamal was Ziad’s uncle.  Thus, it appears that Ali and Yusef were probably the sons of either Gazi, Jamal, or Nesim.

It is not all-inclusive, is heavily redacted in parts, and includes information contradicting known facts about the hijackers. Although dated Nov. 14, 2003, it appears to have been completed in mid-October 2001 (the most recent date mentioned in the report is Oct. 22, 2001), when the FBI was just starting to understand the backgrounds of the hijackers, and it contains almost no information from the CIA, NSA, or other agencies.

October 29, 2000 (FBI page 03218): Two flights from Frankfurt, Germany to Tampa, FL. The admission/immigration number for both was 84811946106 which does not match any known travel document numbers for Ziad Jarrah (Note: one flight was a commercial flight while the other appears to be a private plane that Jarrah supposedly piloted. Paul Thompson’s article, “The Two Ziad Jarrah’s,” stated that, per the St. Petersburg Times, Jarrah did have a German pilot’s license). The FBI HJ Timeline shows the first flight.

December 26 and 28, 2000 (FBI page 03218 and 03219): The Dec. 26 flight was from Miami to Munich and the Dec. 28 flight was from St. Petersburg to Frankfurt. The FBI HJ Timeline shows the first flight.

July 25, 2001 (FBI page 03221): The first flight was KLM from Atlanta to Amsterdam and the second flight was Continental Newark to Dusseldorf. The FBI HJ Timeline shows the second flight.

Sept. 7, 2001 (FBI page 03221): The FBI found a baggage ticket for Ziad Jarrah for a flight from Los Angeles to Houston where the FBI had no record of him being on that flight and being on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Newark that same day The FBI HJ Timeline only shows the second flight.

Note: This report lists both “crime scene/crash site evidence” and “search evidence” that appears to have been obtained by different means (e.g., evidence from cars, hotels, apartments, etc.). Jarrah’s passport and debit card are classified as “search evidence” indicating they were not found at the crash site and were obtained by some other means.

[35]  The discovery of Ziad Jarrah’s Lebanese passport and U.S. student visa in the UA 93 plane wreckage was also reported in various mainstream media articles.  Following are several sources for this fact:

Note: This report lists three Saudi Arabia ID’s that were allegedly found at the crash site. One belonged to alleged UA 93 Saudi hijacker Ahmed Alnami while the other two did not include the names. However, there just happened to be two other alleged Saudi hijackers on the UA 93 flight.

Note: This report states that a “Handwritten letter with possible Arabic writing” was found at the crash site. The analyst then makes the comment, “This is page one of the four page “Dear Traveler letter.” The Dear Traveler letter was allegedly written by Mohammed Atta and contained the 9/11 plans. This letter is confirmed by the following endnote which is an excerpt from Mohammed Atta’s FBI report.

A subsequent search of this baggage revealed items to include a three page letter handwritten in Arabic which, upon translation, was found to contain instructions for the hijackers. Copies of the letter were also recovered from crash site of Flight 93 and in the car registered to Nawaf al-Hamzi that was found at Dulles International Airport.

[41] The photos to the left show Jarrah’s original U.S. student visa and the picture of the charred visa that was allegedly found at the UA 93 crash site. A comparison of the photos with the writing underneath, shows that they are not aligned the same. For example, in the charred visa, the photos lines up with the “H” in Jarrah’s last name while in the original photo it appears to line up one or two characters to the right. Regardless, both U.S. and/or Israeli intelligence would have easily been able to make a fraudulent copy of the visa.

[64] The October 2001 LA Times article contradicts the time Senguen allegedly talked to Jarrah on Sept. 11, stating that she talked to him an hour before boarding which is two hours before her interview with the German police. An hour before Jarrah boarded the flight on Sept. 11, would have been 7 a.m. Newark time and about 1 p.m. Germany time, while Senguen stated she talked to Jarrah around 3 p.m. Germany time.  A documentary on Ziad Jarrah by a Ronan Bennett in Aug. 2004 stated Jarrah called Senguen from an airport payphone which would have meant Jarrah called Senguen no later than about 1:30 p.m. Germany time and possibly even earlier.

Note: Ramzi Binalshibh is often referred to as Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s (i.e., the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 operation) protégé and the second most important alleged al-Qaeda member at Guantanamo Bay today. The subject testimony was allegedly given on 12/11/02 and 4/8/04 at a time that he was held in secret CIA prisons and almost certainly tortured. In other words, this testimony is not reliable as it was most likely obtained by torture.

[74]  If the Ramzi Binahshibh’s interrogation interview had mentioned any Ziad Jarrah meetings with other al-Qaeda members, The 9/11 Commission Report would almost certainly have included it (i.e., because it would be important and pertinent to the alleged 9/11 operation and plans). Thus, there is little or no direct evidence concerning what Ziad Jarrah did for 12 days from July 25 to Aug 5, 2001, or if he was even in Germany at this time.

Part 2: The CIA’s Assessment of Israeli Intelligence: Israel’s Methods and Means to Conduct False Flag Operations Utilizing Deep Cover Operatives and Other Processes

A 2001 Army School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS) report called the Israeli armed forces a 500-pound gorilla that had been known to disregard international law to accomplish its mission. Of the Mossad, SAMS said: “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.”[1] In other words, the Mossad has the capability of committing acts of false flag terrorism and making it look like an Arab undertaking. Israel’s use of false flag operations is a well-established fact that was basically corroborated by the CIA twenty-two years earlier.

When the Iranian students captured the US embassy in Tehran in November 1979 a multi-volume CIA and State Department file was found which included a March 1979 CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence (“Israeli Intel Assessment”). The Washington Post and Boston Globe ran articles relating to the various CIA documents in early 1982, with the reputable but now defunct Counter Spy-Magazine publishing the entire Israeli Intel Assessment in May-June 1982.[2] A Washington Post article in May 1991, also vouched for the authenticity of the CIA documents that were taken from the U.S. embassy in Tehran.[3]

One of Counter-Spy’s co-founders was ex-CIA agent Philip Agee who became a leading opponent of CIA practices and its support for authoritarian governments in Latin America.[4] Agee resigned from the CIA after 11 years of service in 1968 when he became disillusioned with the CIA’s subversion and sabotage of democratically elected governments and other movements for social justice. In his 1975 book, Inside the Company: CIA Diary, Agree named U.S. intelligence agents in Europe and Latin America.[5]

Ironically, Counter-Spy’s public identification of U.S. intelligence agents led to the 1982 Intelligence Identities Protection Act (IIPA), protecting agents’ identities. The law would later come into play in the investigation of the Valerie Plame (CIA agent) where Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, leaked her name to the media as retaliation against her husband (Joe Wilson) for contradicting the Bush Administration’s false claims that Saddam Hussein was trying to acquire yellow cake uranium from Nigeria.[6]

The Israeli Intel Assessment is very detailed and specific and provides a summary of each of Israel’s four primary intelligence agencies (i.e., Mossad, Shin Beth, Military Intelligence, and the National Police). Most of the information in the publication has been derived from a variety of sources including covert assets of the CIA, publications of the Israeli Government, and reports prepared by the U.S. Department of Defense. It also lists 19 “Supplementary Overt Publication” sources that mostly include Israeli government and intelligence-related books written primarily by Israeli and Jewish authors.

Former Mossad chief Isser Harel called the assertions of the CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence “malicious, dilettantish, distortions… but probably authentic.”
Former Mossad chief Isser Harel called the assertions of the CIA Assessment of Israeli Intelligence “malicious, dilettantish, distortions… but probably authentic.”

The Israeli Intel Assessment provides in depth insight into Israel’s intelligence apparatus, including its methods and processes. In an interview with Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv in the early 1980’s, former Mossad chief Isser Harel (1953-63) called the assertions of the document “malicious, dilettantish, distortions… but probably authentic,” and stated that the publication of the document had been a nightmare for him.[7]Coincidently, in a conversation with Christian Zionist Michael Evans in 1979, Harel allegedly predicted that the tallest building in New York City (i.e., the World Trade Center) will someday be attacked by Islamic fundamentalists.[8] Are these the words of a prophet or spymaster who knew what it would take to bring America to its knees and to side with Israel?

The CIA document basically shows that Israel has the means and experience to carry out false flag attacks by recruiting Arabs as deep cover operatives in covert operations, something they most likely did in the 9/11 operation. Deep cover operatives are often planted years in advance of the execution of an operation and can take on identities and backgrounds to fit the operation (i.e., “covert legends”). Among many other important findings, following are some Israeli intelligence processes and methods that could have been pertinent to the 9/11 operation (references to sections of the Israeli Intel Assessment are given in parentheses):

  • The Israeli intelligence and security community is completely loyal and if the government requested the execution of a certain task, legal or illegal, it would be accomplished. (Section A.3.b)
  • Mossad is also charged with inciting disturbances calculated to create mutual distrust among the Arabs and to draw Western sympathy away from the Arab cause. (Section B.1)
  • Much of the activity against the Arabs in the Near East is based on “deep cover operations” by Israeli illegals or the recruitment of Arabs in third countries followed by their dispatch or normal rotation back home to Arab areas (see Part 3). (Section B.2)
  • Elishu (Eli) Cohen, an Egyptian-born Jew, was involved in Israeli sabotage operations (false flag attacks) against American and British installations in Egypt in 1952. (Section B.2) Cohen’s sabotage operation became known as the Lavon Affair, a confirmed Israeli false flag operation against the US (see Part 8).[9]
  • The assessment provides two examples of past Israeli “deep cover” operations, where Israeli/Jewish operatives were put in place years in advance to establish other identities and backgrounds (i.e., covert “legends”). One operation required Egyptian Eli Cohen to take the identity of a Syrian Arab while the other operation required Israeli Johann Lotz to move to Germany for a couple of years to establish an identity as a German African Corps officer (see Part 3, 4 amd 20). (Section B.2) [10])
  • Israel devotes a considerable portion of its covert operations to obtaining scientific and technical intelligence; this includes attempts to penetrate classified defense projects in the United States and other Western nations (see Part 7). (Section B.4)
  • Many Israelis were born and educated in Arab countries and appear more Arab than Israeli in speech, demeanor and attitude. By forging passports and other identity documents of Arab and Western countries, and providing sound background legends and cover, Mossad has successfully sent into Egypt and other Arab countries Israelis disguised and documented as Arabs or citizens of European countries (see Parts 3, 4 and 20). (Section B.4)
  • Israel has used false-flag recruitment pitches extensively and successfully. In several cases they approached citizens of Western European countries [usually Arab] under the cover of a local NATO intelligence organization for operations in Arab target countries (see Part 8). (Section B.4)
  • Shin Beth has picked up genuine Arab espionage agents on their way back to neighboring countries and doubled them (I.e., turned them into Israeli spies) in coordination with Military Intelligence. (Section C.4)
  • Unofficial Zionist organizations based in Israel and Jewish communities throughout the world also give aid to Israeli intelligence operations when needed (see Part 5). (Section A.2)
  • Mossad activities are generally conducted through Israeli official and semiofficial establishments, deep cover enterprises in the form of firms and organizations (i.e., front companies), some especially created for, or adaptable to, a specific objective, and penetrations effected within non-Zionist national and international Jewish organizations (see Parts 21, 23, and 24). (Section B.4)
  • Israeli government organizations that provide support to Israel intelligence and security community are the Ministries of Finance and Tourism, El Al, and the national shipping line, Zim….Official organizations used for [Israeli intelligence] cover are Israeli Purchasing Missions and Israeli Government Tourist, El Al, and Zim offices. Israeli construction firms, industrial groups and international trade organizations also provide non-official cover (see Part 19). (Section B.4)
  • Individuals working under deep or illegal cover are normally charged with penetrating objectives that require a long-range, more subtle approach, or with activities in which the Israeli government can never admit complicity (see Parts 3, 4, 19, 20, 21, 23, and 24). (Section B.4) That is, to provide “plausible deniability” to the Israeli government.
  • The fact that Lebanon has a mix of Christians, Druze, and Muslim population had made that country attractive for intelligence projects and Israel has covert assets and runs operations in Lebanon (see Part 3). (Section B.1)

The CIA’s Assessment of Israeli Intelligence provides several important points to consider when evaluating Israel’s likely involvement in the 9/11 false flag attacks. First, Israel recruits Arabs from other countries and turns them into spies for Israel to assist in Israel’s various intelligence operations. Secondly, Many Israelis are born and raised in Arab countries and appear more Arab than Israeli. Israel also uses these individuals in covert operations and has provided them with fraudulent documents (including passports) from Western European countries. Thirdly, Israeli intelligence uses “deep cover” operatives who will take on another identity (“legend”) and who will be placed in another country several years in advance of the execution of the covert operation.

Eli Cohen: Egyptian deep cover operative for Israel "and" false flag terrorist (Lavon Affair)
Eli Cohen: Egyptian deep cover operative for Israel “and” false flag terrorist (Lavon Affair)

The Israeli Intel Assessment provided two examples to show how Israel uses “deep cover” operatives in its covert operations. In one example, Eli Cohen, an Egyptian-born Jew, was involved in Israeli sabotage operations against American and British installations in Egypt in 1952. The Mossad recruited Cohen for the covert operation to help develop intelligence networks and acquire political and military information in Syria. Cohen adopted the identity of the late Kamil Amin Thabet, a Syrian-born merchant, who immigrated to Argentina in 1961 where he became an active member of the Arab community. Cohen eventually returned to Syria in 1962 where he was assisted by two Arabs who had previously been recruited by the Israelis. Cohen made numerous contacts with Syrian political and military personnel, and was eventually caught in Syria (1965), convicted of spying for Israel and hanged.[11]

The second example of an Israeli “deep cover” operative is Johann Wolfgang Lotz (aka Zeev Gur Arich), an officer in the Israeli Military who went undercover in 1959 as a former Nazi officer to infiltrate special weapons activity by German scientists in Egypt. After receiving training in Israel he went to Germany, married a German woman (while still being married to an Israeli woman), and surfaced as an East German refugee and former African Corps officer. Lotz then moved to Cairo (1960/61) and opened a riding academy where he made the acquaintance of a number of prominent and well-placed Egyptians. Lotz also made a number of trips to Western Europe for debriefing and was eventually caught and imprisoned in 1965 and sent back to Israel in 1968 in a prisoner trade.[12]

Much of the above Israeli intelligence modus operandi was apparently put into action in the 9/11 false flag operation. Parts 7 and 8 will describe Israel’s well documented history of false flag operations and damaging counterintelligence crimes against the U.S.A., while Part 3, 4, and 20 will provide additional evidence that Israel most likely recruited at least a couple of the Hamburg pilot hijackers as deep cover operatives for the 9/11 covert operation.

SAMS assessment of the Mossad and Israeli military was in conjunction with a hypothetical plan for sending peacekeepers to Israel in the event that Israel and Palestinians agree to a peace plan and the creation of a new Palestinian state. The report attempts to predict events in the first year of a peacekeeping operation and then assess the possible dangers for US troops on both sides.

[10]  Like Johann Lotz who ran an Israeli deep cover operation out of Germany, there is evidence that Israel also used Germany to run deep cover operatives in the 9/11 operation. Mohammed Atta went to Hamburg, Germany, in July 1992 to attend school, and Ziad Jarrah and Marwan Shehhi both moved to Germany in April 1996. According to the 9/11 Commission Report (Section 5.3), it was in Hamburg that the three pilot hijackers allegedly became radicalized fundamentalists (see Parts 3, 4, and 20). Or did they just take on covert legends like Eli Cohen and Johann Wolfgang Lots?

Part 1: Notable individuals Endorsing Israel’s Involvement in the 9/11 False Flag Operation and the Author’s 9/11 Theory based on the Actual Evidence

In an interview in December 2007 with Italy’s most respected newspaper, Corriere della Sera, ex-Italian President Francesco Cossiga stated (Italian to English translation), “While all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe….now know that the disastrous 9/11 attack had been planned and realized by the CIA and the Mossad with aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arab countries in order to induce Western Powers to take part…in Iraq and Afghanistan wars.” [1]

Although Cossiga’s interview and his accusations were covered in the press in many European countries, not a word of Cossiga’s interview found its way into the U.S. mainstream media. Coincidentally, Cossiga was also (according to his own admission) a member of Operation Gladio, a NATO/CIA-supported covert operation in Western Europe which used state-sponsored false flag terrorism and the murder of innocent civilians to try to frame legal communist party opponents in Italy as late as the 1990.[2]

Dr. Alan Sabrosky: "Only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground. Our CIA and Israel's Mossad."
Dr. Alan Sabrosky: “Only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground. Our CIA and Israel’s Mossad.”

Dr. Alan Sabrosky received the Superior Civilian Service Award in 1988 after more than five years of service at the U.S. Army War College as Director of Studies and is a holder of the General of the Army Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research.[3] He received his PhD from the University of Michigan and is now a writer and consultant specializing in national and international affairs. Sabrosky is also part Jewish and believes Israel’s Mossad was a primary participant in the 9/11 false flag operation.

In a September 2009 article Sabrosky writes, “Only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: Our CIA and Israel’s Mossad. Only one had the incentive using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad.” Sabrosky points out in the article that it would have been impossible to stage 9/11 without the full resources of both the CIA and Mossad and that 9/11 served the interests of both agencies well.[4] In a 24-minute interview with Press TV in July 2011, Sabrosky discusses in detail Israel’s (via Mossad’s) motivation and evidence tying them to the 9/11 attacks.[5]

Dr. Kevin Barrett is a PhD Arabist-Islamologist who has taught at colleges and universities in San Francisco, Paris, and Wisconsin. He has co-authored five books since Sept. 11, including his latest, We Are NOT Charlie Hedo (co-authored with Paul Craig Roberts). Barrett has appeared on Fox, CNN, PBS and other broadcast outlets and has also inspired feature stories and op-eds in The New York Times, The Associated Press, the Chicago Tribune, and other leading publications.[6] Several of the featured articles discussed Barrett’s right to teach a class on Islam at the University of Wisconsin that discussed among other things, alternative theories to the U.S.G.’s in the 9/11 attacks. Despite 60 state of Wisconsin legislators petition to have Barrett fired, the university allowed Barrett to teach the class in 2006 but did not employ him for subsequent classes.[7]

Dr. Barrett has made significant sacrifices in pursuing actions and beliefs that were detrimental to his livelihood so the truth could be told. He recently stated, “I think it’s [the 9/11 Truth Movement] the most important issue of the 21st century….Anyone interest in participating responsibly in democratic governance needs to investigate this issue.”[8] Dr. Barrett has his own website at and is a featured journalist for and He recently stated in an interview on Press TV that the Sept. 11 attacks were a false flag operation carried out jointly by U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia with “Zionists playing the lead role.”[9]

In April 2012, investigative journalist Chris Bollyn published a book, Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World, which describes dozens of Israeli/Zionist connections to the 9/11 attacks and its cover-up, and supports Cossiga’s and Sabrosky’s conclusions that 9/11 was a false flag operation carried out by Israel, certain neoconservative (“neocon”) individuals in the U.S. government with ties to Israel, and a number of other Zionist individuals and institutions. Bollyn states in the book’s preface, “My hypothesis that 9/11 was an act of false flag terrorism carried out by Israeli military intelligence and Zionist fifth columnists has not been accepted by many in the so-called 9/11 truth movement because it breaks the cultural taboo regarding how Israel and Jews are viewed in America.”[10]

Robert David Steele: “Bollyn's book connects the dots of all the dual Israeli-U.S. citizens in the U.S. Government and commercial circles that were active participants in the 9/11 false flag operation.”
Robert David Steele: “Bollyn’s book connects the dots of all the dual Israeli-U.S. citizens in the U.S. Government and commercial circles that were active participants in the 9/11 false flag operation.”

Among Bollyn’s 55 five-star reviews (out of 75) at Amazon is one by intelligence author and 20-year CIA and Marine Intelligence officer Robert David Steele.[11] Steele was the senior civilian (Deputy Director) in the Marine Corps who was responsible for creating the Marine Corps Intelligence Center and has authored or co-authored over a dozen books on intelligence (Steele is also the number 1 Amazon reviewer for non-fiction books across 98 categories). He is widely recognized as the leader of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and founded and headed up the Open Source Solutions Network and later the Earth Intellligence Network which runs the Public Intelligence Blog.[12]

Steele writes in his review, “The book connects the dots of all the dual Israeli-U.S. citizens in the U.S. Government and commercial circles that were active participants in the 9/11 false flag operation.” Steele further states that the book, “Integrates, for the first time, the history of Israeli false flag operations, the 1980 recognition by Israel that an attack on NYC and specifically against the tallest building in NYC whatever that might be, and the total complex context of 9/11 as both a catalyst for forcing the U.S.A. into a “war on terror” and a cover-up for the most massive financial crimes in history.”[13]

What makes the above individuals so certain that Israel and other Zionist individuals and institutions were primary participants in the 9/11 attacks is a plethora of facts and evidence. Anyone who has looked beyond the white-washed pages of the pitiful 9/11 Commission Report knows that 9/11 blood is all over the Star of David along with certain individuals of the USG and its national security apparatus.

It is this author’s conclusion, based on all the facts and evidence concerning the 9/11 attacks and its subsequent cover-ups, that the 9/11 false flag operation was primarily a joint endeavor by certain individuals in the U.S.G. and its national security apparatus (i.e., a number of neocon officials in the Bush White House and select individuals in the CIA and military intelligence – see Parts 15 to 18 ), Israeli intelligence (i.e., primarily Mossad and Israeli Military Intelligence – see Parts 19 to 26 ), along with certain Zionist individuals and institutions working with Israel inside the U.S.A. (see Parts 28 to 33). However, many of the operation’s functions were compartmentalized and not everyone involved was privy to the entire scheme and its purpose.

The evidence also indicates that Israel and Zionist individuals in the U.S. were most likely responsible for the demolition of the three WTC towers that provided the shock and awe event that sold the American public that the country needed to go to war with Middle East countries that had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks but were coincidently security threats to Israel (see Part 14). American individuals and institutions would not wire buildings that they knew would kill thousands of innocent U.S. citizens, but Israeli nationals and Zionists with dual loyalty to Israel would not have a problem with that part of the operation if sanctioned by certain Israeli leaders and Israeli intelligence. Israel clearly had the human and technical resources in the U.S.A. on Sept. 11, to accomplish their functions of the operation (see Parts 23, 24, and 27).

The evidence also shows that Israel probably handled and instructed the three crucial Hamburg pilot hijackers who were most likely deep cover operatives who wittingly infiltrated the loose-knit al-Qaeda organization (see Parts 3, 4, and 20). Select individuals in the U.S.G. and its military took care of the planes side of the operation and made sure there were no U.S. fighters to intercept the four rogue planes while certain individuals in U.S. intelligence (primarily the CIA, but also some officials in the FBI and NSA) helped provide cover for the alleged hijackers along with a few Israeli communication companies in the U.S. that provided other services critical to the operation (see Part 24).

Shayna Steinger: Issued 12 of the alleged Saudi Arabia "muscle" hijackers U.S. visas in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Shayna Steinger: Issued 12 of the alleged Saudi Arabia “muscle” hijackers U.S. visas in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The evidence further indicates that Saudi Arabia intelligence played a secondary role in handling some of the less strategically important Saudi hijackers and in helping finance some of the operation;[14] however, the Saudi’s part of the operation was carried out with select U.S. intelligence supervision and cover/protection. Coincidently, 12 of the American visas given to the alleged Saudi “muscle hijackers” were issued by an apparent American Jewish woman (sayan) by the name of Shayna Steinger (see Part 33). Many of the visas Steinger issued to the muscle hijackers had errors and/or were given under questionable circumstances.[15]

Israel and Saudi Arabia have very close military and intelligence ties to the U.S. and their interests were aligned in the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent “War on Terror” which eliminated common enemies of the two countries (see Part 14).[16] [17] Nevertheless, the two primary participants and biggest beneficiaries of 9/11 and the subsequent wars that were fought with 9/11 as the pretext were the State of Israel and the U.S. national security apparatus/military-industrial-complex, and this article series will provide the evidence showing Israel’s involvement and guilt.

[14]  There is evidence that Saudi Arabia intelligence helped handle alleged Saudi hijackers Hani Hanjour (alleged pilot of AA 77), Khalid Mihdhar and Nawaf Hazmi. The other 12 alleged Saudi hijackers are often referred to as the “muscle hijackers” who came to the U.S. only several months before the 9/11 attacks. They were apparently true patsies in the operation and were not involved in important strategic aspects of the operation like the three Hamburg pilot hijackers.

[15] Eleven of the thirteen alleged muscle hijackers, and alleged Saudi pilot hijacker Hani Hanjour, had their American visas issued at the U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The State Department official who approved the all these visas was Shayna Steinger, which is a probable Jewish surname (see Part 33 for more detail). A very good and detailed discussion of Shayna Steinger’s involvement in issuing many of the questionable visas can be found at at the following link:

Note: A simple Google search, “Steinger, Jewish” provided over ten pages of Jewish individuals with that surname (with a fair amount of repeats). There were two women, Elaine Steinger and Jessica Steinger who are confirmed Jews from the Des Moines, Iowa area. A search for Shayna Steinger on shows that she lived in various places in the Des Moines area and has “possible relations” with an Elaine and Jessica Steinger (Note: Ms. Stenger Jewish and 9/11 connections will be discussed in detail in Part 33).

For the record, this author challenges Ms. Steinger to show that she is not Jewish and a likely Israeli intelligence sayanim (see Part 5) by providing her with an all expense paid one-week “plus” l$1,000 vacation back to the Des Moines neighborhood where she grew up so we can talk to the family and friends who knew her best (please see my Contact page Ms. Steinger or email directly at

[16]  Both Israel and Saudi Arabia have very close ties to the American military and intelligence apparatus. Israel is the largest beneficiary of U.S. Aid and receives about $3 billion per year of which about 75% is used to purchase U.S. weapons (Wikipedia: ), while Saudi Arabia is consistently the largest purchaser of U.S. weapons. In Oct. 2010, the U.S. State Department announced a $60 billion sale of U.S. weapons to Saudi Arabia, making it the biggest arms sales in American history. (Wikipedia: ).

[17] All the wars fought to date under the pretext of 9/11 and the “war on terror” have benefited both Israel and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. has already taken out two of Israel’s/Saudi Arabia’s biggest enemies (Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Muammar Gaddafi in Libya), is currently attempting to take out another (Bashar Assad in Syria), while Israel and Saudi Arabia is trying their best to have the U.S. do the same for the Ayatollahs in Iran. Indeed, the two biggest opponents against the Iran nuclear agreement are Israel and Saudi Arabia who are both heavily lobbying against the deal (UK Telegraph, “Israel and Saudi Arabia Present United Front Over Iran Deal:” ).

Bibi Netanyahu. Oops, did I really just say that the 9/11 attacks were "very good" for U.S. and Israeli relations?
Bibi Netanyahu. Oops, did I really just say that the 9/11 attacks were “very good” for U.S. and Israeli relations?

On the evening of September 11th, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the 9/11 attacks meant for relations between the US and Israel. Netanyahu initially replied, “It’s very good,” and then corrected himself, saying, “Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.”[1] In April 2008, Netanyahu added, “We [Israel] are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and American struggles in Iraq…. [These events] swung American public opinion in our favor.”[2] Israel was indeed a huge beneficiary of the anti-Muslim and anti-Arab feelings produced by 9/11, and Israel benefited from the planned and subsequently implemented Middle East wars and conflicts, which greatly improved their national security.

A May 2002 article in The New York Times confirmed the benefit to Israel, stating, “American sympathy for Israel has been on the rise, a trend that has been on display in Congress and in recent opinion polls. This month both houses of Congress expressed unqualified support for Israel in strongly worded resolutions, and Washington never seemed more firmly in Israel’s camp.”[3] The Times also pointed out that CBS and Gallup polls in April 2002 showed sympathy for Israel at around 50 percent, about 10 points higher than in previous surveys over the last five years, while sympathy for the Palestinians dropped to 11 percent from 15 percent over the same time period. According to Norman Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute, “I don’t think we would have the same level of enthusiasm for Israel if Sept. 11 had not happened.”[4]

Israeli intelligence was even a critical partner in the erroneous intelligence findings that supported the Iraq war. According to ex-Israeli general and senior Israeli military intelligence officer Shlomo Brom, “Israeli intelligence was a full partner with the U.S. and Britain in developing a false picture of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction capability.”[5] Brom told the Associated Press in December 2003 that Israeli intelligence “badly overestimated the Iraq threat to Israel and reinforced the American and British belief that the weapons existed”[6] (see Part 16). Brom noted that the Israeli assessment may have been influenced by politics. “Israel has no reason to regret the outcome of the war with Iraq, “noting that Saddam was an implacable enemy of Israel.[7]

Without 9/11 there would not have been an Iraq war, a war that eliminated one of Israel’s most feared enemies, an enemy which fired an estimated 40 scud missiles at them during the 1991 Gulf War.[8]  With 9/11 as pretext, the U.S. could, and did, fight Israel’s Middle East wars, starting with Iraq. Coincidently, a large cadre of U.S. neoconservatives (“neocons”), many with very close ties to Israel and its most powerful and influential leaders, started planning and lobbying for various Middle East wars about a decade before 9/11, with Iraq being the first target (see Part 14). Other countries that the neocons and Israel regarded as security threats, and thus slated for attack and regime change, included Syria, Libya and Iran. Libya was subsequently attacked, Syria is under attack and Israel has continuously pressured the U.S. to attack Iran.

Who benefited the most from the 9/11 attacks?
Who benefited the most from the 9/11 attacks?

Cui bono is a Latin term that means “for whose benefit?” It’s a question often asked by law enforcement personnel based on the belief that the individuals or institutions guilty of committing a crime are most likely to be found among those who have the most to gain. In the 9/11 operation, two parties in particular stand out as the largest beneficiaries of the attacks: Israel and the U.S. national security apparatus (i.e., the military-industrial complex, intelligence and homeland security), both of which reaped huge economic and geopolitical benefits, and not by accident. Since 9/11, approximately $2 trillion has been spent on wars, accompanied by over $300 billion of annual spending increases to the combined military/intelligence/homeland security budgets, while attacking countries that posed little or no threat to the U.S. but were enemies of, and security threats to, Israel.[9]

In a typical criminal investigation, the suspects are not usually associated with the investigators and prosecutors of the crime, as they were in the 9/11 investigations. Indeed, intelligence institutions like the CIA and FBI, which committed dozens of serious intelligence failures that led to the success of the attacks, basically investigated themselves. These complicit and untrustworthy institutions never looked into any evidence contrary to the Official 9/11 Story (itself a “conspiracy theory”), and the crime of the century was miraculously solved within days of the attacks. Coincidentally, the CIA and FBI investigations themselves, as well as the 9/11 Commission Report, all relied on circumstantial evidence, much of which has not been proven to this day.

Key Zionist investigators, prosecutors and judges were also in place on 9/11 to stymie investigations and court cases where the process of “discovery” could have led to evidence contrary to the Official 9/11 Story (see Parts 30 to 33). There was also little-to-no transparency or disclosure in any of the 9/11 related investigations and not one person has ever been held accountable for the numerous 9/11 intelligence failures. The 9/11 investigations ignored some of the most important principles of democracy and justness and was based on unreliable torture testimony.

In a criminal court case guilt has to be proven “beyond a reasonable doubt” and in a civil case, guilt can be established based on a “preponderance of the evidence.” In both processes purely circumstantial evidence can be used to convict, but the evidence has to be more compelling in the former. Unfortunately, in the 9/11 investigations, almost all the evidence available from law enforcement personnel, particularly the FBI, CIA and NSA, has been shrouded in secrecy and never made public. As an example, an FOIA release of an FBI investigation into Israel’s possible foreknowledge of, and connections to, the 9/11 attacks resulted in about 600 heavily redacted pages being made available and nearly 1,300 pages being withheld (see Part 21, the “Dancing Israelis”).

In the absence of transparency and accountability in the 9/11 investigations, one has to weigh all the available evidence in determining guilt. The purpose of this series of articles is to provide the facts and evidence showing Israel’s primary involvement in the 9/11 attacks, a topic ignored by most of the 9/11 researchers in the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement (see Part 35). This multi-part series will provide the most comprehensive examination up to now of the evidence implicating Israel in the execution and cover-up of the 9/11 false flag operation, while also revealing Israel’s motives and means.

These articles are impeccably researched and referenced with primarily mainstream media (“MSM”) articles and government documents. Although much evidence is still kept secret by the USG the preponderance of available evidence shows a very high probability that Israel was a primary conspirator in the false flag operation. Among other important findings, the article series will show (note: also see the Table of Contents menu related to the article series):

  • Israeli intelligence’s (mostly the Mossad’s) confirmed use of Arab and Israeli citizens as deep cover operatives for Israeli intelligence and the use of Jewish individuals (sayanim) and institutions throughout the world to aid and support Israel’s worldwide intelligence operations. (Parts 2, 5 and 6)
  • Evidence that pilot hijackers Mohammed Atta and Ziad Jarrah were probably deep cover operatives working for Israeli intelligence (Parts 2, 3, and 20)
  • A history of Israel’s many counterintelligence crimes, false flag attacks, and illegal covert operations against the U.S.A. (Parts 7 , 8, 9, and 10)
  • Top-level Jewish neocons in the Bush White House on 9/11 who had close ties to Israel and/or the military industrial complex. (Parts 11, 15, 17, and 18)
  • Top-level Jewish neocons in the Bush White House on 9/11 who were main proponents behind the Iraq War and/or who were previously investigated for spying for Israel. (Parts 12 and 16)
  • The history of Israel’s and the neocons’ decade-long propaganda campaign for various Middle East wars, starting with Iraq. (Part 14)
  • Israeli individuals (known as “the Dancing Israelis”) and an Israeli organization (namely, Zim Shipping) with demonstrable foreknowledge and likely involvement in the 9/11 false flag operation. (Parts 19 , 21, and 22)
  • Other Israeli individuals and institutions involved in the 9/11 covert operation including the so-called Israeli Art Students and various Israeli communication companies in the U.S. on 9/11. (Parts 23 and 24)
  • The Jewish-American sayanim who were likely involved in the World Trade Center demolition operation and its subsequent cover-up. (Parts 28)
  • Jewish-American sayanim who were involved in other compartmentalized 9/11 operations, including the investigations and subsequent legal cover-up. (Parts 30, 31, 32, and 33)
  • Incriminating timelines showing connections among various Israeli and U.S. sayanim individuals and groups and the alleged 9/11 hijackers. (Part 34)
  • A comparison of the facts and evidence in this multi-part series with that provided by the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, and the likely reason for that Movement’s ignoring Israel’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks. (Part 35)

The evidence provided in this series will show that Israeli intelligence and a number of Zionist/Jewish individuals (i.e., sayanim) in the U.S. with close ties to Israel, were involved in the 9/11 false flag operation and its cover-up. The absence of transparency and accountability in the 9/11 investigations should be a red flag that Americans are still being lied to and that the U.S. national security apparatus which investigated the crimes continues to hide material evidence and the truth. Unfortunately, as long as some of the individuals and institutions who helped commit the crimes remain the investigators and prosecutors of those crimes, America will never know what really happened on that fateful day in September 2001.
