“… 5. In the hands of the States of to-day there is a great force that creates the movement of thought in the people, and that is the Press. …. to express and to create discontent. … and it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have the Gold in our hands…. “
– Protocols of the Elders of Zion, written 1897
A sayanim (sing. Sayan; Hebrew: helpers, assistants) is a Jew living outside Israel who volunteers to provide assistance to Israel and/or the Israeli Mossad utilising the capacity of their own nationality to procure assistance. This assistance includes facilitating medical care, money, logistics, and even overt intelligence gathering. Estimates put the number of sayanims in the hundreds of thousand.
While not official Mossad agents and sometimes acting without explicit knowledge, they may work in the capacity of unregistered representatives of the government of Israel in their respective nations.
Generally-speaking, these non-Israeli Jewish volunteers are asked to engage in legal activities that will not bring them into trouble with the authorities, such as using Wikipedia to spread propaganda. There are exceptions, however, as for example in the case of Jonathan Pollard, the U.S. Naval intelligence employee who engaged in espionage on behalf of Israel’s intelligence agencies and whose exposure by the FBI strained relations between the U.S. and Israel.
Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad katsa turned author, wrote extensively about activities of the sayanim, as has Gordon Thomas. According Ostrovsky and Thomas, the sayanim provide assistance of various kinds to Mossad officers operating in foreign countries. This assistance can include facilitating medical care, money, logistics, and even overt intelligence gathering. They can be Judges, Court Clerks, Expert Witnesses, Child Protective Service Workers, Assistant District Attorneys, Police Officers, or anyone with a great degree of power over people’s lives, and will do anything at the behest of Mossad case officers (katsa) for the State of Israel against its enemies or those perceived to be unfavorable politically to Israeli policy. (“By Way of Deception”, Victor Ostrovsky). Sayanim are supposedly not directly involved in intelligence operations, and are only paid for their expenses.
“From 12 September until 11 July,” Martin Seigel (sometimes written Marty Siegel), “was director of field operations, overseeing the rescue on behalf of Bovis Landfill, which won the contract to clear the debris,” The Observer (U.K.) reported on August 18, 2002. How was Bovis chosen so quickly? one might ask. Martin Seigel began working on the pile of rubble already on September 12, 2001? How did a subsidiary of Bovis Lend Lease, a British-owned company headed by Frank Lampl (“Life President” of the company) win the contract in less than one day? What kind of selection process was used? Why such haste to hire companies to remove the debris – before the bodies are recovered and the evidence is examined?
The World Trade Center is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey so it stands to reason that Bovis Lend Lease was chosen by Lewis Eisenberg then director of the Port Authority (until December 2001). Eisenberg, as chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, personally arranged the privatization of the World Trade Center property and oversaw the negotiations that delivered the leases into the private hands of Silverstein and Lowy.
Sir Frank Lampl (knighted by the Queen) is the first Honorary President of the Czech British Chamber of Commerce, a position he has held since March 2009. He has also established a branch of Bovis in Brno, his hometown in the Czech Republic. Bovis has two locations in Brno, one at the hospital and another near the technical university, where nanotechnology is developed.
Lampl’s Bovis Lend Lease is a company that has long been engaged in nanotechnology research as well. Since the 1990s, Bovis has been involved in the development of nanotechnology labs, such as those in which the super-thermite used on 9-11 was made. Bovis company archives indicate that the company has been involved in nanotechnology production since at least October 2000.
