ed note–the following is–IMO–the best piece of investigative journalism dealing with Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11.
Now, as it relates to the present brouhaha between Trump and the organized Jewish interests who have made it clear that Rubio is their Golden Boy and that Trump has no chance of winning, resulting in Trump’s dogged assertion/discussion surrounding the ‘cheering Muslims’ on the morning of 9/11 and the ADL running to the forefront, both in denying Trump’s claims and in defending him against the charges of ‘anti-Semitism’, there is a very important little nugget of information in Ketchum’s piece below relating to ADL working to get the stories involving Israeli espionage in the US prior to 9/11 quashed. As Abe Foxman, then-director of the ADL is quoted saying in a meeting with Fox News–‘Look, you guys have generally been pretty fair to Israel. What are you doing putting this stuff out there? You’re killing us’.
In other words, according to those executives at Fox News whom Ketchum interviewed, ADL was one of the primary movers and shakers getting the story of the 5 dancing Israelis scrubbed from public discussion, which explains a lot as to WHY the ADL is so front-and-center now in the latest drama involving Trump.

On the afternoon of September 11, 2001, an FBI bulletin known as a BOLO - “be on lookout” — was issued with regard to three suspicious men who that morning were seen leaving the New Jersey waterfront minutes after the first plane hit World Trade Center 1. Law enforcement officers across the New York-New Jersey area were warned in the radio dispatch to watch for a “vehicle possibly related to New York terrorist attack”:
White, 2000 Chevrolet van with ‘Urban Moving Systems’ sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ, at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals.
At 3:56 p.m., twenty-five minutes after the issuance of the FBI BOLO, officers with the East Rutherford Police Department stopped the commercial moving van through a trace on the plates. According to the police report, Officer Scott DeCarlo and Sgt. Dennis Rivelli approached the stopped van, demanding that the driver exit the vehicle. The driver, 23-year-old Sivan Kurzberg, refused and “was asked several more times [but] appeared to be fumbling with a black leather fanny pouch type of bag”. With guns drawn, the police then “physically removed” Kurzberg, while four other men - two more men had apparently joined the group since the morning - were also removed from the van, handcuffed, placed on the grass median and read their Miranda rights.
They had not been told the reasons for their arrest. Yet, according to DeCarlo’s report, “this officer was told without question by the driver [Sivan Kurzberg],’We are Israeli. We are not your problem.Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.’” Another of the five Israelis, again without prompting, told Officer DeCarlo - falsely - that “we were on the West Side Highway in New York City during the incident”. From inside the vehicle the officers, who were quickly joined by agents from the FBI, retrieved multiple passports and $4,700 in cash stuffed in a sock. According to New Jersey’s Bergen Record, which on September 12 reported the arrest of the five Israelis, an investigator high up in the Bergen County law enforcement hierarchy stated that officers had also discovered in the vehicle “maps of the city with certain places highlighted. It looked like they’re hooked in with this”, the source told the Record, referring to the 9/11 attacks. “It looked like they knew what was going to happen when they were at Liberty State Park.”
The five men were indeed Israeli citizens. They claimed to be in the country working as movers for Urban Moving Systems Inc., which maintained a warehouse and office in Weehawken, New Jersey. They were held for 71 days in a federal detention center in Brooklyn, New York, during which time they were repeatedly interrogated by FBI and CIA counterterrorism teams, who referred to the men as the “high-fivers” for their celebratory behavior on the New Jersey waterfront. Some were placed in solitary confinement for at least forty days; some were given as many as seven liedetector tests. One of the Israelis, Paul Kurzberg, brother of Sivan, refused to take a lie-detector test for ten weeks. Then he failed it. …
9/11 – The Mossad Connection: Five Dancing Israelis – “Our Purpose Was To Document The Event”
A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.
