PHOTOS OF THE AMERICAN BASE IN ISRAEL by Barry Chamish
RECALL my previous article:
THE AMERICAN army base - As reported in my last memo, a huge
American army 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
"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 road.
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
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 price tag. As for the
value of 50 square miles of prime Israeli real estate: more billions.
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
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 asking, "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 for?"
"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 this base?"
"They are building it for us. All the supervisors are American." "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
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
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."

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.
