From shooting at journalists and children to attempting a false-flag operation against American buildings in Egypt, Israel has a history of committing questionable acts. However, their crimes don’t stop there. On September 11th, 2001, five men stood in the parking lot of an apartment complex in New Jersey. These men, unlike many Americans on 9/11, did not stare in disbelief at the attacks unfolding right before them. Rather, these five men seemingly celebrated the worst terror attack in modern world history. They took pictures while laughing and dancing and were likely only surpassed in joy by Osama Bin Laden and other terrorists in the Middle East. Commonly called the Five Dancing Israelis, the world has forgotten about their actions. However, the FBI never forgot, and an investigation into these men yields shocking, but not surprising, results: two of these five men had ties to the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.
The Five Dancing Israelis
While the world watched the New York City skyline crumble, the Five Dancing Israelis recorded the event. When the dust settled, a bystander reported the five men to the police, and they were on the move. However, the police got to the men, and the Israeli propaganda campaign began when the men opened their mouths. According to the police report, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told officers, “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”
The Israeli hatred for Palestine, and vice versa, has led to desperate actions by the governments of both nations. Perhaps these five men were just immature, cold-hearted men that saw political gain for their home country. However, the owner of Urban Moving Systems, the company that employed the Five Dancing Israelis, fled the nation for Israel. This occurred after American authorities questioned him about his ties to Israel and the five men. The American government detained the men for 71 days before intervention by the Bush Administration led to their deportation to Israel. A more detailed analysis of these five men’s actions before, during, and after 9/11 is available here.
What Does Israel Have to Gain?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel was “benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon.” Netanyahu then said that the attack swung American public opinion in their favor. In 2001, Israel received $95.21 million for their Arrow missile program. In 2002, they received $131.7 million.
After 9/11, it was reported that Israeli intelligence agencies warned the United States of a possible large-scale terrorist attack a month beforehand. Did Israel care to share all the information, or did they hold back? How would Israel know about a possible terrorist cell in the United States without having agents in the nation?
Israel had a lot to gain from a terror attack on American soil. The superpower of the Western world now hated the same people that the Israelis did: Arabs. Israel could now persuade the United States government to topple Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq. Yossi Sarid, a former member of Israel’s legislative body, accused the government of purposely withholding information. More specifically, he claimed that Israel helped create the false notion of WMDs in Iraq.
The Coverup of the Century
Members of Al-Qaeda were not celebrating the attacks on 9/11 in a parking lot in New Jersey. However, five Israeli men, with two having direct ties to Mossad, recorded and jumped for joy at the loss of thousands of lives. Why would Israel decide to lie about something of this magnitude?
It’s simple: they distrust all institutions that surround them. From Arabic nations to the United Nations, Israel is wary of almost every institution in the world. But the special tie between the United States and Israel allows them to get away with many things. However, this relationship does not make them immune to every crime. If Israel announced to the world that it had lied about 9/11 in an attempt to further their agenda in the Middle East, the world would not take that lightly. The American government would face immense pressure to break ties with the Israeli nation. With the American government’s support for spreading democracy and the Israeli desire for a secure Zionist state, it is within the best interests of both nations to not go public with the truth.
This is no conspiracy, as Israel has done this with nuclear weapons. However, until the truth is glaringly obvious or the State of Israel owns up to these mistakes, it is likely that the truth will never fully be released. All that is known is one thing: five Israeli men laughed and danced while the world lamented a worldwide tragedy.
