- As reported in my last memo, a huge American military
base is nearing completion in Israel. Reportedly, it has holding facilities
for as many as 18,000 protesters.
- After visiting it yesterday, I'd say way more. This base
is massive. I counted ten enormous US Army issue prefab warehouses and
more were going up. At the base guard post, the American flag is waving
in the wind. A sign proclaims that the project manager is one Jerry Ray.
- I start taking photos of the base with a cheap camera.
The guard asked what I was doing. I replied, "I'm a journalist proving
that a huge American military base is being constructed on Israeli soil."
- "What's wrong with that?" he asked. "Who
else will protect us from the Palestinians?"
- "Where are the Americans?," I probed.
- "What do you mean, they're everywhere here. Everyone
in charge is American."
- We drove away. My friend at the wheel was even more depressed
than me. "It's a concentration camp," he said.
- To witness Israel's loss of sovereignty, take Route 443
to the Rosh Haayin junction. Drive ten minutes until you see Rantis Junction.
The sign points to Beit Arye, and Halamish. Turn right. The base is a mile
away on the left side. To salute the American flag, turn left at the entrance
- The base is located ten minutes from Ben Gurion Airport.
Luckily, a new terminal opened last year, so the Americans have the spacious
old terminal to store and move whatever they're planning to import once
Gush Katif and the rest of the settler vermin are rid of.
- The article prompted a reporter from a large American
radio network to call me. He wanted to see the base and photograph it.
I met him an hour later and off we went.
- First stop, the base gate. The reporter is amazed to
see the American flag waving and to read on a sign that the contractor
for the base is an Arab named Mustafa. He notes what a huge security fiasco
hiring an Arab contractor to build an IDF base would be. Then we see busloads
of Arab workers leaving the base by bus.
- We continue down the road and photograph the massive
buildings and underground digging.
- Then we reach the checkpoint at the border of the Green
Line. The base stops precisely there, the border the Americans have planned
for us. We turn into the dirt road to the left and start following the
circumference of the base.
- The base is enormous, far huger than any other base in
the country. We estimate that several tens of billions of dollars are going
into the base itself but the new road surrounding the complex currently
being blasted out of the rock has to add another billion dollars to the
pricetag. As for the value of 50 square miles of prime Israeli real estate:
- Neither of us knows what the base will be used for so
I suggest, "Let's go inside and ask someone. We reach the entrance
where two guards are seated. I ask one if we can speak to someone in charge
of the project and photograph inside. The guards agree to call headquarters
and see. One guard calls, the other points to a path to the right and says,
"Let's see if they'll let you photograph up there. You've never seen
so many computers and cameras in your life."
- The base construction manager agrees to talk to us. We
are escorted to his trailer/office where he is sitting with three other
sub-managers. The radio reporter wastes no time askiing, "Are those
buildings going to be used to hold evacuated settlers and protesters?"
- The project manager laughs. I agree. That is not the
purpose of this base.
- Next question: "What is this base going to be used
- "A storage facility for the IDF."
- I respond: "Suddenly the IDF is suffering a huge
lack of warehouse space? I mean, how big is this base?"
- "It will be half the area of all Tel Aviv."
- "For storage? What is the American role then in
- "They are building it for us. All the supervisors
- "What are those underground tunnels for?"
- "No tunnels. It just looks that way because of the
topography. Look, you came to the wrong person. I'm a simple builder from
Rosh Haayin. What do I know?"
- We didn't know either. We now knew the US was building
this complex with an Arab chief contractor. It will not likely or primarily
be for IDF use. One guess was that it will replace all the vital IDF bases
in Yesha after a pullout but that wasn't satisfying. Nothing could replace
men overlooking the enemy.
- I received the reporter's permission to distribute the
photos, six hours before I was to do a 2 hour interview of the Jeff Rense
radio program. I sent him the photos and then chose a select few experts
to tell me what they were of. My first two replies were:
- Barry, I have seen these kind of installations when I
was in the military for years I was stationed at a base where a major part
of it was like this. These are not barracks of any kind. The metal facilities
built up on the rocks are huge electronic facilities probably filled with
CIA and extensive phone and other electronic monitoring stuff. The bunker
is one just like the ones I was around at the base I was at here in California.
It is a missile launch bunker. Somewhere within a mile to 5 miles are silos
with the missiles in them, This kind of a facility has minimal personal
but filled with covered electronics that can even be monitored from the
US itself. Not one of those large buildings is for people to live in or
even really work in.
- This is exactly what I was told in 2001, and I quote:
- "It is the intention of the U.S. administration,
to ultimately turn over to the United Nations, the military base that is
being considered for construction in the heart of Israel. It is the leaders
of the NWO/Illuminati who will decide the appropriate time when all that
will occur. The U.S. is to build the military base within Israel under
the guise that it is for the use of the U.S. military. It is not. It is
to be turned over to the United Nations at the appropriate time. The sole
purpose of this base is for the United Nations use, not the U.S., and not
Israel. This base will be a disaster to the best interests of Israel. It
will be used against Israelis."
- Photos 2 - Old Glory flies proudly at the base entrance
- 3. Road work within the base. (below story)
- 4-9. The massive "warehouses."
- 10. Lots more building on the way.
- 11-13. Electronics tower. Below, what appears to be an
entrance to a tunnel. There is a car in the shadow. Compare it to the height
of the entrance doors.
- 14. Border of Eastern base fence. Far in the distance
are the "warehouses."
- Forget Israeli sovereignty. Our precious and holy land
will soon be used as a forward base for the impending New Middle East.
- If anyone wants the photos to examine, I'll forward the
originals to you. Also, try to listen to my two hour interview of July
5 with Jeff Rense at www.rense.com.
