The Israeli Producer Who Made Movies About 9/11 – Before It Happened
While nearly everyone in the world was shocked by the events of 9/11, Arnon Milchan was certainly not. On 9/11, the Israeli secret agent who became a Hollywood film producer must have said (to himself and his closest friends) that the airplane bombings of the World Trade Center and the explosive demolitions of the Twin Towers that followed looked just like a scene out of one of his movies.
To say that Milchan is an Israeli secret agent misses the mark by a mile. He is much more than that and has been since 1965 when he began his close friendship and strategic partnership with Shimon Peres, the godfather of Israel’s nuclear arsenal. As the Israeli authors of Confidential, a biography on Milchan wrote, Arnon and Shimon “are the holders of some of Israel’s most significant secrets.” Among these secrets would be the Israeli role in the 9/11 attacks against the United States.
Arnon Milchan has been Israel’s secret “minister of finance” since 1965, when the godfathers of Israeli terrorism, Shimon Peres and Moshe Dayan, recruited him. Benjamin Netanyahu worked for Milchan in the mid-1980s when they smuggled 850 nuclear triggers from the U.S. to Israel.
In 1965, at age 21, Milchan was recruited to be “Minister of Finance” by Moshe Dayan and Shimon Peres, although this was not the usual ministerial position that one might think. As the authors of Confidential wrote: “What Milchan did not understand was that Dayan and Peres had in mind a completely different kind of “minister of finance,” unelected, secret, far outside the country – and in service indefinitely.”
“He fronted secret bank accounts for the State of Israel – accounts that would be used to finance his country’s most covert and sometimes deadly intelligence operation around the globe.”
When you understand Milchan’s role as Israel’s secret “minister of finance” for the two godfathers of Israeli terrorism, you will understand where Milchan’s funds come from – and why he makes the films that he does.
Prior to 9/11, Milchan was involved with the production of at least four films that featured scenes predictive of 9/11:
1978 – The Medusa Touch: The climactic scene is of a Boeing 747 passenger aircraft flying into the PanAm Building in New York.
1985 – Brazil: The futuristic film depicts a society in which terrorism is a daily occurrence in a state engaged in an never-ending war against the terrorists.
1999 – Fight Club: The final scene shows two people in an apartment watching the high-rise towers around them being blown up.
2000 – The Lone Gunmen: The pilot episode of this TV series made by Milchan’s business partner Rupert Murdoch, featured a Boeing passenger aircraft being remotely hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center. Aired on FOX TV in March 2001.
