2001 Mexican legislative assembly attack
|Date||17:00, 10 October 2001 - 17:30, 10 October 2001|
|Location||Mexican Legislative Assembly, Mexico City, Mexico|
|Exposed by||Ernesto Cienfuegos|
|Description||Two 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 occurred around 5pm on 10 October 2001. Two armed Israelis, Saar Noam Ben Zvi and Salvador Gersson Smeck (a suspected Mossad agent) carrying Pakistani passports were arrested in the Mexican Legislative assembly. The attack was widely but only briefly reported on Mexican TV and in local newspapers. It was reported in Pravda on 13 October but appears to have been subject to a news blackout as it was covered scarcely if at all by Western commercially-controlled media. The pair were later released without charge.
What attack? Where? By Wikipedia's criteria (i.e. reporting in the Western commercially-controlled media), the event is not noteworthy, since it was not followed by the US 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", but if it exists, this article was not readily visible online as of 2019.
"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."
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)." Saar Noam Ben Zvi was released "on about $4,000 bail and the case turned over to the Mexican immigration authorities."
This incident was the top story on Mexican TV the day it happened, but disappeared after only a couple of days. The primary source of this report website of the Attorney General of Mexico is pgr.gob.mx. The Internet Archive, as of March 2019, had an archived a page (Boletín #697/01) of this site from 23 November 2001:
“Procuraduria General de la Republica de Mexico

Western Media Blackout
The Western corporate media may have completely failed to report this story, although CNN may have published a short report. However, Pravda published the following story on October 13, 2001:
“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.”

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.
