      Flying Triangles Make A Triumphant Return To Israel
      By Barry Chamish <chamish@...>

      The summer of 1999 saw the return of flying triangular formations over
      Israel and as always, their appearance was greeted with video cameras to
      solidly document them. With the media uninterested in the phenomena, it is
      Israel's old guard of skywatchers who made certain that the aerial invaders
      were captured on film.

      Take July 22, as a case in point. This was the evening of Tisha B'av, a sad
      Jewish fast day, recalling the destruction of the Second Temple by the
      Romans. The triangular craft was first spotted in the north of the country
      at 7:30 PM, sundown, in the cities of Tsfat and Yokneam. It was videotaped
      in both places. Then the phone network went to work. Rafi Malka, a
      professional photographer who, in 1988, videotaped Israel's first UFO, over
      Haifa, was told of the triangle. He managed to tape it from his home in
      Ashdod and earned the distinction of being the first Israeli to videotape
      two separate UFOs.

      He phoned his nephew Doron Cohen in Yavne who spread the word in that city.
      Among those he contacted was professor Rami Shkalim, who produced an
      absolutely brilliant videotape of the craft. He was one of over two hundred
      people in three groups viewed the craft in Yavne until it disappeared at
      approxomately 12:30 AM. But he was the only one to have just purchased a
      Sony 320 zoom video camera, essentially professional equipment.

      I drove to Professor Shkalim's home and watched his film. It ranks as one of
      the most exciting in Israel's brief UFO history, and that is no mean
      accomplishment. For ten minutes we see a craft with two silvery lights, both
      surrrunded by a perfectly circular red aura twice their size. Then the craft
      seems to turn and we see a tiny third light to the left. Then it seems to
      turn again and we have a triangle of lights. Then the craft becomes two
      lights, which emit spirally turning lights, like twisting fireworks, before
      the craft disappears to the west. During the night the craft traversed an
      oval shaped path in the upper northern sky.

      Dr. Shkalim is some witness! He has a PhD in both physics and philosophy and
      is currently a professor of Kabbala at Bar Ilan University. And he took the
      courageous step of going public with his videotape. He called the popular
      television morning news program, Goof Morning Israel, and volunteered to
      present his tape on camera. He appeared with the Israeli establishment's
      prime debunker, Prof. Ariel Cohen and tore him apart with the solidness of
      his evidence. Cohen, meanwhile was more ignorant than usual. In a classic
      statement of perverted misknowledge, he claimed that, "In 1947, the first
      UFOs were seen by Arnold Palmer."

      It was a media triumph for Prof. Shkalim, and by its end the program's host
      chided Cohen, telling him, "This film is too weird to be written of as a
      planet or anything else we know."

      The fact that the UFO appeared nationwide on Tish B'av follows the pattern
      of major incidents falling on Jewish holy days. Without going into the
      details of each encounter, (they are summarized with photos at
      http://members.tripod.com/~ufoisrael), the Shikmona Beach incident occured
      on Rosh Hashana evening, the Kadima sightings were on the Sabbath, the crop
      formation at Tel Adashim was also formed on Rosh Hashana evening, while an
      even more spectacular formation at Bet Zarzir was formed on Passover
      evening. Israel's most documented UFO incidents occur with undeniable
      regularity on Jewish holy evenings and the latest Tisha B'av sighting has
      convinced many local observors that this can no longer be dismissed as

      On August 27, ufologist David Ronen was skywatching as usual and spotted a
      triangular UFO over Tel Aviv. He quickly phoned Gil Bar and told him, "The
      craft is heading towards Rishon Letzion. Get your camera." Gil rushed to his
      roof and managed to film the craft before his camera's batteries gave out.
      He only had two minutes to work with but it was enough. Gil captured
      precisely the same triangular UFO that Adrian Dvir and his group of "alien
      healers" had filmed the October before over Rishon Letzion.

      In November 1997, fifteen year old Gil filmed a UFO over downtown Rishon
      Letzion being chased by an earthly plane in broad daylight. Now he, like
      Rafi Malka, joins the elite club of Israeli skywatchers who have filmed two
      separate UFOs.
