DescriptionTwo Israelis caught with false passports grenades, explosives and guns in the Mexican parliament a month after 9-11. Later released without charge. Western corporate media uninterested.

The 2001 Mexican legislative assembly attack began around 5pm[1] on 10 October[2] when a pair of armed Israelis, Saar Noam Ben Zvi and Salvador Gersson Smeck (a suspected Mossad agent)[2] both carrying Pakistani passports[3] were arrested in the Mexican Legislative assembly. The attack was widely (but briefly) reported on Mexican TV and in local newspapers. It was reported in Pravda on 13 October 2001[2] but appears to have been subject to a news blackout by Western commercially-controlled media. After "the Israeli Embassy used heavy handed measures to have the two Israelis released" (meeting with Jorge Gutman), they were indeed released without charge.[4][5]

Official narrative

What attack? Where? Wikipedia has no mention of the attack since the event is not "notable", as it was the subject of a news blackout by the commercially-controlled media. Maybe it didn't even happen? Could the Mexican Government have been incorrect in its posting of a story about Israelis with weapons in the Legislative Assembly? CNN reportedly "made a brief mention of a foiled terrorist bomb plot in the Mexican Parliament building",[6] but if it exists, the article (or video) is not readily visible online anymore and it is unknown if an archive exists. AFP did carry it as a short news item, which was printed in the Panamanian La Prensa, for example.[7][8] Otherwise there are only mentions in outlets that are not part of the commercially-controlled media, like Narconews.[9]


Officials of the Public Prosecutor's office remove the two men arrested in the Legislature Palace with an arsenal of weapons
"Two Israeli terrorists are escorted out of the Mexican Congress"[10]

Ernesto Cienfuegos for La Voz de Aztlan reported on 15th October, 2001:

"This morning La Voz de Aztlan had a personal telephone interview with the Mexican Congressional Press Secretary, Lic. Adriana Lopez, and verified the arrest of the two Israelis after they had entered through the highly secured front entrance of the Palacio Legislativo de San Lázaro. She stated to La Voz de Aztlan that the two terrorists had taken advantage of a situation that occurred around 1700 hours of Wednesday October 10 when a large contingent of Sugar Industry Unionists were entering through the metal detectors. The two Israelis followed about 50 of the unionists to the office of the President of the Mexican Congress Beatriz Paredes. The two Israelis were first pretending to be press photographers but called the attention of the sugar unionists because of their nervous and out of the ordinary behavior. About ten of the unionists confronted them and observed that they were carrying guns and and what looked to them to be explosives. They held the two Israelis until Official Congressional Security personnel took them into custody. The head of Congressional Security Salvador Alarcón verified that the Israelis had in their possession nine hand grenades, sticks of dynamite, detonators, wiring and two 9mm "Glock" automatics."[1]


The attackers were "released through high level intervention from the Israeli Embassy and the then Mexican Zionist Secretary of Foreign Relations George Gutman (aka - Jorge Castaneda)."[11] Saar Noam Ben Zvi was released "on about $4,000 bail and the case turned over to the Mexican immigration authorities."[1]


The attack was the top story on Mexican television on the day it happened, but disappeared after only a couple of days. A primary source for this report is the website of the Attorney General of Mexico, which was at the time pgr.gob.mx. The Internet Archive, as of August 2020, has still an archival copy of that webpage (Boletín #697/01) from 23 November 2001 (screenshot, saved at archive.is / translation):

Procuraduria General de la Republica de Mexico

México, D.F., a 12 de octubre de 2001
Boletín No. 697/01


Respecto a la situación de los 2 sujetos detenidos el pasado miércoles en las inmediaciones del Palacio Legislativo de San Lázaro, la Procuraduría General de la República informa que el ciudadano israelí Saer Ben-Zvi o Saar Noam Ben Zvi fue puesto a disposición del Juzgado Primero de Distrito “A” de Procesos Penales Federales en el Distrito Federal, en tanto que al mexicano Salvador Gersson Smeck se le dictó auto de libertad con las reservas de la ley, debido a que no se encontraron elementos para su consignación.

En virtud de que cuando fue detenido Gersson Smeck portaba un arma calibre 9 milímetros, quedó en libertad con reservas de la ley y se dio vista a la Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional en relación al permiso de portación de arma de fuego con que cuenta.

El israelí Ben Zvi fue internado en el Reclusorio Varonil Norte, pendiente de que se le resuelva su situación jurídica, como probable responsable de la comisión de delitos de violación de la Ley General de Población, previstos y sancionados por los artículos 123 y 143 de la Ley General de Población, todos en concordancia con el 6º. Y 7º., fracción 1º, 8º. 9º y 13º, Fracción II del Código Penal Federal, con lo que se da inicio al proceso penal correspondiente.”

Mexican Newspapers

"Bomb in San Lázaro", the cover of an 11 October 2001 report on the attack by Diario de Mexico

The Internet archive contains Spanish language reports from Mexian newspapers including La Crónica de Hoy[13], Correo De Guanajuato,[14] La Jornada[15] and the Panamanian La Prensa.[16]

Western Media Blackout

The Western corporate media may have completely failed to report this story. It was reported but dismissed (on grounds of "anti-semitism" by USAJewish.com). CNN reportedly published a short report on the day itself.[17]

However, Pravda published the following story on October 13, 2001 (saved at archive.org and archive.is) :

“Los Angeles, Alta California - October 12, 2001 - (ACN) We were alerted this morning by a subscriber from Mexico that two Israelis were arrested Wednesday inside the Palacio Legislativo de San Lбzaro (Mexican Congress) in Mexico City. Both were armed with 9 mm automatics and one was carrying a military hand grenade, electrical wiring and other bomb related materials. The Israeli Embassy at Sierra Madre 2155, colonia Lomas de Chapultepec has close its doors to the Mexican Press and are refusing to talk. The incident has been independently verified by La Voz de Aztlan through Mexican diplomatic, press and other sources in Mexico City.

The Chief of Legislative Security, Salvador Alarcуn, has also confirmed the arrest of the two Israeli terrorists. One of them Saur Ben Zvi is a confirmed citizen of Israel and the other, Salvador Guersson, recently immigrated to Mexico from Israel. It is has been determined by the Procuradurнa General de la Repъblica (Mexican Department of Justice) that Guersson is a retired Colonel of the Israeli Defense Forces and that he may now be operating as a MOSSAD agent. It is not known how they were able to penetrate the extensive security system of the Mexican Legislative Palace.

This is a very grave incident with many serious international implications. Many have questioned who may be really behind many of the recent terrorist acts around the world including the ones against the WTC and the Pentagon. The Mexican public and congress has been reticent about declaring war against Islam along with the U.S. It is possible that an act of "terrorism" against the Mexican Congress was planned in order to "terrorize" Mexico into towing the line against Islam. La Voz de Aztlan will be on top of this developing story to report any additional developments.”
 (13 October 2001)  [2]


The attack was one month after 9-11 and 2 weeks after the car bombing of a legislative assembly in India. It occurred 2 months before a shooting attack on the Indian Parliament.

The George Washington Bomb plot of 9-11 was similarly (and even more effectively) removed from the historical record. The dancing Israelis of 9-11 were similarly not charged but quietly sent back to Israel.

In May 2002 Fox News reported a rental truck for "furniture delivery" tested positive for TNT traces and RDX plastic explosive, both driver and passenger were reported to be Israeli nationals and that one of the men had entered the country illegally.[18]

5star.png 30 November 2018 Robin  A good overview of this event which the commercially-controlled media have tried to sweep down the memory hole.
One month after 9-11, a remarkable attack occurred on the Mexican parliament, by a couple well armed Israeli Mossad agents with Pakistani passports. The fact that Western Corporate media was uninterested (and therefore, Wikipedia too) should give food for thought.
