One of the over 120 Israeli "art students" who cased federal
office buildings and military bases during a year and a half before the 9/11
attacks has revealed details of her "assignment" in the United States
to a WMR source.
The former art student, who is now assigned to work with a
non-governmental organization (NGO) in South Africa on research on violent
crime against South African whites by blacks, said she was first assigned to
work at an Israeli-owned shopping mall kiosk in Orange County, California, in
early 2001 to "brush up on her American English language skills."
From California the young Israeli woman was transferred to
Chicago and then to Houston, where she worked in an office close to the

to death on April 29 by two Houston police officers, was known to have been
concerned about the lack of security at the port of Houston, was monitoring the
activities of Israeli intelligence in the greater Houston area, and was known
to have clashed with the Department of Homeland Security over its lack of
interest in providing security for the Port of Houston.
After her stint in Houston, the Israeli art student was
transferred to New York City for a two-week "holiday." However, she
and her group were ordered by their superiors to be "out of the
city" on September 11, 2001.
The Israeli woman was granted access to the United States on
a student visa and she was identified as an "art student" in her visa
application. It was later discovered that none of the Israeli "art
students" were, in fact, art students. Those detained as a result of a
joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Marshal's
Service, and other federal law enforcement agencies were simply deported to
Israel without facing a trial for wrongly stating their purpose for coming to
the United States.
The Israeli "art student" also claimed that while
working at mall kiosks in California she was "working on other
