The controversy around Urban Moving Systems (active as a business since approximately 1996) centers around the fact that it was a Mossad front company, and whether or not the “employees” (agents) knew what was about to go down on September 11th.
There were also, according to the FBI report, traces of explosive in the van used in the Dancing Israelis incident. Were members of this group involved in rigging the towers for demolition?
In section 5, page 25 of the FBI report, a male eyewitness who was painting the interior of an apartment spots the Dancing Israelis on a nearby roof “less than 5 minutes” after the first plane hits the WTC. The location of the roof, 100 Manhattan Avenue in Union City, NJ, is a 5 minute drive from Urban Moving Systems at 3 W 18th Street in Weehauken.
This contradicts the statement of one of the Israelis in the 2nd video, who claims they began driving to that point after the first plane hit the towers.
There were a number of reasons I retrieved and posted the 4 page police report from the East Rutherford, NJ P.D. on the 9-11-2001 Dancing Israelis incident. If any 9-11 researchers had seen the report, they failed to make it available for public scrutiny.
As a consequence, some individuals have concluded that the Dancing Israelis were an “urban legend”, based only on researchers’ opinions and a slew of seemingly disparate facts.
Fill out an FOIA request, or write a letter, and these public records are yours for a few dollars, or free. So why have we not seen (until now) official documentation on these suspicious events – events that apparently never got a mention in the 9-11 Commission Report?
The FBI’s investigation of the Dancing Israelis is close to 450 pages long. Many sections are blanked out, some pages have been withheld, and it won’t be completely declassified until 2030 at the earliest.
The report is in 6 sections. The PDF “search” option does not seem to be working. A brief synopsis of some findings are below, section by section.
Because of time constraints, I have not vetted everything. Please note in the comments area any section/page of interest found in these documents.

She talks with co-worker for “a few more minutes” and then hears someone in the building shout “Oh my God a plane just hit the World Trade Center.”
She then heads into the dispatch room of Urban Moving Systems (where the shout came from) and sees “a still picture on a computer screen of a plane hitting one tower”.
