9/11: The Florida Connection
by Christopher Bollyn
May 21, 2008
Florida was the central networking base and staging area for the "false flag" terror attacks of 9-11. Fifteen of the nineteen Arabs allegedly involved in the hijackings, for example, lived and had their base of operations in South Florida.
"False flag" means a crime which is designed to be blamed on others in order to achieve a strategic and political goal for the real perpetrator of the crime. To understand how this strategy is used in false flag terror operations I recommend reading The Little Drummer Girl by John Le Carré and watching the movie by George Roy Hill. Victor Ostrovsky's books about the Mossad are also recommended reading.
The Little Drummer Girl was written with input and advice from many Mossadniks, including a former head of Israeli military intelligence. Most of the book deals with the way Mossad creates a completely false history for a Palestinian "terrorist" by leaving a trail of traces across Europe. A false history is exactly what was created in Florida, albeit on a much larger scale, with the 15 Arabs "hijackers" whose identities were used to create a false history prior to the attacks of 9-11. There are, however, obvious flaws in this history, which will be taken up later.
That a false history was being laid was quite clear from published reports: "At least six of the suspected terrorists had two sets of driver's licenses issued by Florida, which would have allowed two or more people to use the same identity," the Sun-Sentinel (Florida) reported on September 28, 2001. "Many of the suspected terrorists, it is becoming increasingly clear, swapped identities as part of their preparations for the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, according to a Sun-Sentinel review of documents, interviews and published reports." But why, and by whom, were the "hijackers" identities being swapped? Were these Arab suspects even aware that their identities were being used by others?
"These guys were just committed zealots and willing to give it up for the cause without really being key members of the network," Larry Johnson, former deputy-director of counter-terrorism for the U.S. State Department, said. "They were told what to prepare for, what to train for. They were not the ones calling the shots."
"They were, however, extremely well organized," Johnson said. But who was really "calling the shots" if not them? Are we supposed to think that Osama Bin Laden or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed were truly the brains behind this organization? "We don't have anything in history to compare with this," Johnson said. "The only thing that comes close to it is a former Soviet intel [intelligence] operation."
So who was really running the terrorist network in Florida that resembled a Soviet intelligence operation? A preponderance of evidence indicates that Israeli military intelligence was the master organization behind the "Arab" terrorist network based in Florida.
My discovery that the current Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, made a secret visit to New York City on the eve of 9-11 has provided significant pieces to the puzzle about the Israeli intelligence network in Florida and its role in the terror attacks.
"WINGS" & SUNNY ISLES BEACH
I have experienced several remarkable coincidences related to the events of 9-11. The first was my wife's vivid dream about our family being attacked by airplanes, which she experienced a few days before the actual aerial attacks occurred. What is most remarkable about this coincidence is that Helje related her dream to me as we drove through New York City in the early morning hours of September 11, 2001, about 7 hours before the first plane struck the North Tower.
Another remarkable coincidence happened during a trip to Miami in February 2006. We had flown in from Germany and were staying at the Monaco Hotel on Collins Avenue. The Monaco is in a part of North Miami Beach that is now called Sunny Isles Beach. We had arrived at night and simply driven north on A1A until we found a suitable hotel.
The Monaco Hotel is one of the few old fashioned low-level hotels that remain in that area. The surrounding buildings are monstrous 55-story skyscrapers built right on the beach, the tallest oceanfront condominium towers in the United States. These would be the Trump Palace, the Trump Royale, the Trump Grande Ocean Resort and the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort in Sunny Isles.
At the time, most of these awful skyscrapers were still under construction and the fences around the site were plastered with even more frightful posters of the developers, or "the visionaries": Donald Trump and his Israeli partners, Michael and Gil Dezer.
Michael Dezer is a veteran of the Israeli Air Force who immigrated to the United States in 1962. The Dezers and Florida Friends of the Israel Defense Forces hold annual poker tournaments "to benefit the soldiers of Israel."
We went for a walk along Collins Avenue the next evening and stopped in a large beach store called "Wings," about a block north of our hotel, looking for a bathing suit for my daughter. The logo for the store reminded me of the "wings" an Israeli pilot wears on his chest. My wife noticed that the screen saver on the computer behind the counter was an Israeli flag that covered the entire screen.
While my family browsed around the store, in which we were the only shoppers, I talked to the young Middle Eastern looking man behind the counter. I recall asking him in Hebrew if he was from Israel, which he was, and then asked him if the store was Israeli-owned. That turned out also to be the case.
As we turned to leave I remember saying to my family that these were the people who had pulled off 9-11. This was my gut feeling. This was my intuition speaking and it must have been based on what I had noticed in and around the store. I felt very strongly about this.
Having visited Florida, California, and the Caribbean I have seen all kinds of surf and beach stores but this store was something else. The Wings store at 17700 Collins Avenue is a very large free-standing building with a high ceiling and a huge windowless space behind the store. There were two trucks parked in the store's parking lot on the side of the building. The huge windowless warehouse space behind the store seemed way out of proportion for a simple beach store. How much space is required to store bikinis, Tee-shirts, and sea shells? Most beach stores get by with very little storage space -- but not Wings.
Every time we walked by, the Wings beach store was always empty. This made it seem very suspicious because they must have very high overhead costs. Nothing about this store made sense. It seemed more like a logistics base that operated the beach store as a front, not unlike the shuttered Urban Moving Systems (UMS) outfit I had visited in Weehawken, New Jersey.
UMS was the fake moving company, across the river from the World Trade Center that was exposed as an Israeli intelligence (Mossad) front. The five dancing Israelis arrested on 9-11 after being observed photographing and celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center worked for that Mossad operation. Dominic Suter, the head of UMS, was allowed to flee the United States shortly after 9-11 although he was considered a suspect by the F.B.I.
Apart from the young man working inside the Wings store there always seemed to be an Israeli man of military age coming or going near the store. This seemed very strange for a beach store in a very quiet part of town. Most beach stores in Miami are small boutiques run by women or retired people. The staff is always female. Young military age men from Israel are the last people one would expect to find running a bikini boutique in Miami. It turns out that Wings has a whole chain of stores in Florida and up the East Coast, as well as in Texas and on the West Coast. The store in Sunny Isles is just like the rest of their stores.
What is most interesting about my experience at Wings is that this chain of beach stores is owned by the two Israeli men that met with Ehud Olmert in New York City on September 10, 2001. The founders of L&L Wings are Shaul (a.k.a. Shual) and Meir Levy, two Israeli Jews of Syrian origin.
I discovered that Ehud Olmert had made a secret visit to New York City on the day before 9-11 in an article in the Jerusalem Post about the Likud's football club, Betar:
Three years ago, Betar was sold to a four-man consortium (US businessmen Meir and Shaul Levy, local businessman Meir Finegel, and Jerusalem real estate agent Sasson Shem Tov, who pulled out a few weeks ago), following a meeting in New York with then-mayor Ehud Olmert on September 10, 2001. There were no other potential buyers.
The day before 9-11, the men that own the L&L Wings chain of beach stores met with Ehud Olmert, then mayor of Jerusalem, in New York City. Other than what I have written, this significant fact has not been reported or discussed in the media, mainstream or alternative.
According to the website of Wings, the company's corporate office and warehouse is on the second floor at 2800 NW 125th Street in Miami, where Shaul Levy is the registered agent. What's interesting about this address, near the Opa-Laca Airport, is that it is also the location of a company called Empire Art Products, Inc.
Why would a multi-millionaire Israeli businessman, who owns spacious properties on both coasts of Florida, New York, Texas, and California, share a low-rent building in an industrial park with a company that deals in art products? Is Shaul Levy involved in selling art products? Was he the source of the paintings that were being sold by the Israeli intelligence agents who were posing as art students as they tried to penetrate U.S. government offices from 1999 to 2001?
