The Israeli Connection To 9-11


New documentary evidence points to an Israeli connection to 9/11

by Justin Raimondo
July 26, 2002

Many people write to me and ask: “Why do you hate Israel so much?” My answer to them is: No, I don’t hate Israel — but I am beginning to hate Israel’s government, and here’s why:

“Israel’s missile attack on a densely populated area of Gaza City provoked worldwide condemnation yesterday, but the Israeli Government defended its action robustly. The West and the Arab world united in denouncing the attack, saying it violated international law by targeting innocent civilians. But Ariel Sharon, the Israeli Prime Minister, hailed the killing of the Hamas commander Salah Shehada as a great success. The deaths of 14 others, including nine children, were said to be regrettable.”

Okay, so it’s a war, and bad things happen in wartime, unavoidable deaths, “collateral damage,” etc. etc., you know the drill. But why does Israel’s Prime Minister find it necessary to hail the killing of nine children as “one of our great successes” and congratulate his trained killers for a job well-done? Is he an out-of-the-closet sadist, loud and proud in his desire to inflict maximum pain?

Sharon later backtracked, somewhat, acknowledged that a “mistake” had been made in firing a heavy-duty missile at a thickly-populated apartment complex in the Gaza strip, and tried to shift the blame onto “misleading intelligence.” According to the new story, Shin Bet hadn’t told them that innocent civilians were in the area.

This was met with widespread disbelief. After all, firing a one-ton missile at an apartment complex — you know, a place where families live — could have had but one result. “To suggest anything otherwise,” John Ryan, Ireland’s UN ambassador said in the Security Council the other day, “is disingenuous.”

Which is just a hifalutin’ way of calling someone a bloody liar.

Even Sharon’s poodle, otherwise known as the President of the United States, was moved to remark that the Gaza massacre was somewhat “heavy-handed” — although naturally the official US denunciation, as always, reiterated this administration’s unconditional support for Israel. As presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer put it:

“The [unelected] president’s concern here is there is loss of innocent lives. The [unelected] president has been and will continue to be the first to defend Israel. In this case the [unelected] president sees it differently. ... This was a deliberate attack on this site, knowing that innocents would be lost as a consequence of this attack.”

Is it finally beginning to dawn on the White House that what we are dealing with in the Sharon government is evil, pure and simple – as evil as Hamas. Probably not, but the unmistakable evidence of something rotten in the state of Israel grows, such as this sickening story in the Jerusalem Post about an IDF company commander and a soldier in the reserves who tortured and sexually abused a Palestinian youth. The Post reports:

“The two were carrying out searches for a man when they discovered his son. The commander threatened the youth with a loaded rifle, before commanding him to remove his pants and underwear. The two then held a flame near the youth’s genitalia. In addition the two are charged with sexually abusing the boy and beating him.”

The incident occurred three months ago, just as Israel’s amen corner in this country was declaring the moral superiority of the IDF over the suicide bombers, because, you see, they don’t target civilians. If innocents are killed, or injured, by the IDF it is always a “mistake” — and that’s why there’s no “moral equivalence” between the two sides. Or so the Israel Firsters aver. But here we have even the [unelected] President’s own spokesman acknowledging the obvious: what happened in Gaza was no accident, but a deliberate targeting of Palestinian civilians.

Although I’m sticking to my original opinion that to compare the Israelis to the Nazis is overstated, the gap between rhetoric and reality is rapidly closing. Stylistically, at any rate, what that IDF commander and his accomplice did to a mere child evokes images of leather-jacketed Stormtroopers indulging in their favorite sports.

What’s more, these horrors are enacted while Sharon and his advisors bark like a pack of mad dogs, reined in only by the qualms of their American handlers.

As if Sharon is testing the waters to see how much the Americans are willing to put up with, the Israeli government keeps announcing the most heinous measures — establishing exclusively Jewish land holdings, collectively punishing the families of suicide bombers — and pulling back only after an outpouring of criticism. But the Israelis are always careful not to push us too far, and their timing, I must say, is impeccable: wasn’t it fortunate that Congress had already completed the final legislation authorizing an extra $200 million in US aid just as those nine kids were being blown to smithereens?

Just how far does Israeli malevolence go?

One of the great unsolved mysteries of the period leading up to 9/11 is the extent of an Israeli spy operation in the US uncovered by Carl Cameron of Fox News and widely reported, including in this space. As we all know, everybody spies on everybody, “friends” and foes alike. But this operation is believed to have been so extensive, and wide-ranging, that the real question in regard to Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11 is, as one US federal agent put it to Cameron, “How could they not have known?” Now, however, more evidence of the Israeli connection is emerging...

Both Israeli and US government officials scoffed at these charges as an “urban myth.” Their denials, however, were somewhat undermined by the leaking of the US government’s own report on “suspicious activities” by Israelis around US government offices and military installations. The report, culled from information supplied by numerous federal agencies, documents what is obviously a large-scale intelligence operation directed against US government facilities. Now more documentary evidence of the Israeli connection to 9/11 comes with the emergence of the US government’s own list of terrorist suspects, two versions of which Cryptome.com has obtained and posted, with the following information as to their provenance:

“A Finnish list of FBI terrorist suspects, dated 3 October 2001, first published about six months ago, may be compared to a similar list published on an Italian site, dated 22 May 2002. The two lists have many of the same names but a fair number of names are unique to each, and the Finnish list provides a ‘function’ and ID for each suspect.”

There are also other differences. The Italian site indicates that this is an official government circular originating with the American authorities and distributed to various Italian financial institutions in an effort to trace the terrorist trail. As far as I can see, all the names on the Finnish list are Arabic. The Italian version, however, has a number of American names as well, one Frenchman, and — lo and behold! — there is our old friend Dominik Suter, listed right between Eyad Suleiman, a native of Kuwait, and Sheikh Amed Salim Swedan, a Kenyan.

Suter, you’ll remember, is the fellow behind the mysterious Urban Moving Systems, whose employees were arrested after neighbors reported them laughing and cheering as they watched the World Trade Center burn. These five “Middle Eastern-looking men,” as described by witnesses, were Israelis: they were found with box cutters in their van, $4,000 in cash, and multiple passports. Police interrogated them for hours, and transferred them to a maximum security facility, where they were held for months.

Their van was registered as the property of Urban Moving Systems: A raid on the Urban Moving Systems warehouse yielded computers, documents, and other evidence — of what, we don’t know. Suter, the owner of the company, refused all comment, and soon fled the country — to Israel.

The inclusion of Suter, an Israeli, and the front man for what even the Forward acknowledges was a Mossad operation, on an official list of terrorist suspects should silence, for good, those who dismiss the Israeli connection to 9/11 as a “myth,” urban or otherwise. As a great patriot once said:

I have in my hands a list...”

On that list, along with Mohammed Atta, and Zacarias Moussaoui, is not only Suter, but also five other Americans — or, at least, non-Arabs with US addresses. What’s up with that?

Only God, and the higher echelons of the US government, know for sure. What we do know is this: it is no longer possible to deny that the US government believes Israel had some connection to the events leading up to 9/11. The documentary evidence, along with the reported testimony of patriots within law enforcement, is accumulating to the point where it can no longer be ignored.

Just how far does Israeli malevolence go? I’m afraid we’re about to find out...

Stop US Tax-funded Aid to Israel Now


“SUSTAIN is a non-hierarchical, grassroots organization committed to supporting and sustaining the Palestinian movement for justice, human rights and self-determination.

“The United States government supports Israeli violations of Palestinian national and human rights militarily, economically, and ideologically. The most tangible form of this support is the massive tax-funded aid that goes to Israel. We are committed to building a campaign against US military and economic aid to Israel so that US tax-dollars do not support the abuse of human rights.”

Suspicious Activities Involving Israeli Art Students at DEA Facilities

“In January, 2001, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Office of Security Programs (IS), began to receive reports of Israeli art students attempting to penetrate several DEA Field Offices in the continental United States. Additionally, there have been reports of Israeli art students visiting the homes of numerous DEA employees. These incidents have occurred since at least the beginning of 2000, and have continued to the present.” ...

“The activities of these Israeli art students raised the suspicion of IS and other field offices when attempts were made to circumvent the access control systems at DEA offices, and when these individuals began to solicit their paintings at the homes of DEA employees. The nature of the individuals’ conduct, combined with intelligence information and historical information regarding past incidents involving Israeli Organized Crime, leads IS to believe the incidents may well be an organized intelligence gathering activity.”

U.S. Police and Intelligence Hit by Spy Network

“In the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, the FBI has stumbled on the largest espionage ring ever discovered inside the United States. The U.S. Justice Department is now holding nearly 100 Israeli citizens with direct ties to foreign military, criminal and intelligence services.

“The spy ring reportedly includes employees of two Israeli-owned companies that currently perform almost all the official wiretaps for U.S. local, state and federal law enforcement.

“The U.S. law enforcement wiretaps, authorized by the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), appear to have been breached by organized crime units working inside Israel and the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad.”

Despite Coverup, Israel Caught Spying in Washington Again

June 2000, Special Report:
“Israel has been caught spying in Washington again, this time on the White House and other sensitive telephone systems. But Americans have to look and listen very hard to learn the details.

“The damage could be as great as that sustained during spy-for-pay Jonathan Jay Pollard’s blatant military codes, plans and secret-stealing rampage of the 1980s. And probably greater than Israel’s stealing not only of U.S. nuclear secrets in the 1960s, but even of American enriched uranium via an Israel-controlled contracting firm in Apollo, Pennsylvania.”

The following information is reported on Cryptome.org:

The June 2000 Washington Report story above was first broken on May 5, 2000, in Insight magazine (a weekly supplement to the daily Washington Times), and then on Fox News. The Insight authors researched it for a year, and their article appears to be the first major coverage of Israeli telecommunications spying on the U.S., as described later in the Fox News reports of December 2001.

Due to post 9-11 political censorship, however, the Dec. 2001 Fox News reports have been pulled from their website, and the May 2000 story has also disappeared from both Insight and Fox News. The following URLs are given in the Washington Report article above, but the articles are now gone:

“Based on that experience, and operations in eight designated conflict areas from Vietnam to Haiti, I have to say that the story we hear on the news and read in the newspapers is simply not believable.

“The major problem in exploiting the energy riches of Central Asia is how to get the oil and gas from the landlocked region to the world market. ...US oil companies and government officials have explored...pipeline routes...south from Turkmenistan across western Afghanistan and Pakistan to the Indian Ocean.”

“This ability to commit the most horrific acts of terror, and successfully blame them on its enemies through black propaganda, is what makes the CIA’s inclusion in the OHS [Office of Homeland Security] so dangerous.

“This one-two punch, in conjunction with the CIA’s expertise at ‘provoked responses’ and ‘false flag recruitments,’ also makes the CIA itself a prime suspect in the terror attacks of 11 September, and the current propaganda campaign being waged in America now, as a pretext to threaten terror against the Bush Administration’s domestic political opponents, as well as to win support from the terrified middle class for the illegitimate Bush regime.”

The authors report that O’Neill told them: “The main obstacles to investigate Islamic terrorism were U.S. oil corporate interests and the role played by Saudi Arabia in it.”

Osama bin Laden is a Saudi who has worked with the CIA since the 1980s, when they supplied him with U.S.-made Stinger missiles so his forces could shoot down Russian helicopters in Afghanistan.
