    Question US Plans for Tel Aviv: Site 911

    Why Is The US Building A $100 Million Underground Facility Outside Tel Aviv?

    The US Is Building Secret Site 911 In Israel - Business Insider




    Leave it to legendary Walter Pincus from the Washington Post to flesh out a Request for Proposal
    construction project planned for Israel called Site 911.

    The oddly named project will cost up to $100 million, take more than two years to complete, and
    can only be built by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances. Palestinians
    need not apply.


    When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional
    outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three
    floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory — all wedged behind shock resistant doors
    — with radiation protection and massive security.


    Only one gate will allow workers entrance and exit during the project and that will be guarded by
    only Israelis.


    The bottom two floors are smaller, according to the full line of schematics uploaded to the Army's
    Acquisition Business Web Site, and possibly used for equipment and storage.


    As impressive as the American design features already are, Ada Karmi-Melamede Architects will
    decorate the entire site with rocks it chooses, but are paid for by the contractor, and provide three
    outdoor picnic tables.


    Pincus also found this detailed description of the mezuzahs that will adorn every door in the facility:


    These mezuzas, notes the [US Army] Corps, “shall be written in inerasable ink, on . . . uncoated
    leather parchment” and be handwritten by a scribe “holding a written authorization according to
    Jewish law.” The writing may be “Ashkenazik or Sepharadik” but “not a mixture” and “must be uniform.”


    Also, “The Mezuzahs shall be proof-read by a computer at an authorized institution for Mezuzah
    inspection, as well as manually proof-read for the form of the letters by a proof-reader authorized
    by the Chief Rabbinate.” The mezuza shall be supplied with an aluminum housing with holes so it can
    be connected to the door frame or opening. Finally,
    “All Mezuzahs for the facility shall be affixed by the Base’s Rabbi or his appointed representative
    and not by the contractor staff.”


    Along with this request is another called 911 Phase 2.


    Also in the $100 million range, Pincus finds the “complex facility with site development challenges”
    requiring services that include “electrical, communication, mechanical/ HVAC [heating, ventilation,
    air conditioning] and plumbing” requirements telling; and along with the fact that the contractor
    must posses a U.S. or Israeli Secret Security Clearance, he believes this phase to be a secure
    command center.


    Pulitzer Prize winning, Yale grad, born in 1932 whose worked intelligence and media in D.C.
    since 1955 closes his piece with these shadowy words.


    "The purpose of Site 911 is [un] clear."

    possibly the workers will be walled in, after completion?

    (as with the pyramids in nearby egypt...)

    could be (simply) a mossad training center, as they allegedly stay somewhere "near tel aviv"...

    It's being built by the yanks for the IDF apparently-

    Site 911 is the latest in a long history of military construction projects the United States has undertaken for the IDF under the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program.

    The 1998 Wye River Memorandum between Israel and the Palestinian Authority led to about $500 million in U.S. construction of military facilities for the Jewish state, most of which were initially based in an undeveloped part of the Negev Desert.

    According to Corps publication, over the years it has built underground hangars for Israeli fighter-bombers, facilities for handling nuclear weapons (though Israel does not admit having such weapons), command centers, training bases, intelligence facilities and simulators.

    I suppose it's based on a realistic appraisal of Israeli foreign policy . Just another example of US largesse to Israel, although what exactly they get in return sure beats me.

    yes, sabang.... could be the reason...

    it was mentioned somewhere, that in exchange for the settlements the palestinian authority might get the negev (surely without beersheva...?)...

    so another one, that already hints to a palestinian state...
    israel is preparing...
