A topic that has been around for years but not discussed much is that of the Israeli Art Students (Gelatin B-Thing) camping out on the 91st floor of the North Tower (WTC1). The claim is that these “Israeli Art Students” were responsible for the “Preparing of the WTC Destruction”. The New York Times reported that the Art Students were living in the North Tower but claim they were an Austrian stunt group known as Gelatin B-Thing, not Israeli. Let’s look more into who these “Art Students” really were.

The Infamous Israeli “Art Students” Had No Role in 9/11
The Israeli “art student” mystery

“For almost two years, hundreds of young Israelis falsely claiming to be art students haunted federal offices — in particular, the DEA. No one knows why — and no one seems to want to find out.”
The ‘Israeli Art Student’ Files

Here are a few of the original sources pushing the Israeli Art Student claims. Some of the information seems to be accurate but there are also many false claims which I will get into more below.

Israeli art students in WTC connected to September 11, 2001.

“ISRAELI STUDENTS/SPY RING penetrated U.S. security – Ecstasy Drug trafficking ring.
Hanan Serfaty was arrested by DEA agents in connection to the Israeli spy ring. What makes him stand out, is that he was listed as being an art student who was apart of the World Views program, which was in the World Trade Center on floors 91 and 92 in the Lower Manhatten Cultural Council.

Serfaty was moving large amounts of cash: he carried bank slips showing more than $100,000 deposited from December 2000 through the first quarter of 2001; other bank slips showed withdrawals for about $80,000 during the same period. Serfaty’s apartments, serving as crash pads for at least two other “art students”, were located at 4220 Sheridan Street and 701 South 21st Avenue. Lead hijacker Mohammed Atta’s mail drop was at 3389 Sheridan Street–approximately 2,700 feet from Serfaty’s Sheridan Street apartment. Hanan was an “art student” who was a former Israeli military intelligence officer who rented two Hollywood apts close to the mail drop/apartment of Mohammed Atta.”

1) Is there any hard evidence that the Art Students camping on the 91st floor of WTC 1, were Israeli?

2) How did these art students get thousands of pounds of incendiary charges inside the buildings without help from WTC Security Firms like Stratesec, Kroll Associates, and the PANYNJ?

3) Do these students have any other suspicious connections or circumstances surrounding their proximity to the crime scene? Did these students have any professional expertise in demolition that would qualify them to manage and orchestrate such a daunting demolition operation?

4) Is it possible that these individuals were intentionally set up with occupancy inside the WTC in order to create a “Red Herring” in order to divert attention away from said Security Companies and their links with CIA and Wall Street?

I can’t seem to find much information on these guys and what they’ve been doing since 9/11 but these are some questions that need to be answered before we can say they were Israeli Demolition experts that rigged the Towers for destruction.

Some might say that the Security was not adequate and will even use the example of when on August 7, 1974, when Philippe Petit snuck into the WTC and did a secret wire walk between the World Trade Centers. However, the entire WTC Security System was redesigned after the ’93 WTC Bombing under the control of Kroll Associates.


Here is more information about Gelitan B-Thing. Is it possible that they are a secretive stunt group known as Gelatin-B from Austria?

The B-Thing (Gelitin)
Balcony Scene (Or Unseen) Atop the World; Episode at Trade Center Assumes Mythic Qualities (Saturday, August 18, 2001)

“Called ”The B-Thing” and produced by four Vienna-based artists known collectively as Gelatin, the book is demure to the point of being oblique. What little explanation it contains appears to have been scribbled in ballpoint. Among the photos and schematic drawings, there are doodles of tarantulas with human heads.

In short, the book belies the extravagance of the feat it seems to document: the covert installation, and brief use, of a balcony on the 91st floor of the World Trade Center, 1,100 feet above the earth. Eight photographs — some grainy, all taken from a great distance — depict one tower’s vast eastern facade, marred by a tiny molelike growth: a lone figure dressed in a white jacket, standing in a lectern-size box.”

“Mr. Janka was happy to talk about the project, at least at first. After weeks of planning, he said, one night Gelatin — he, Florian Reither, Tobias Urban and Wolfgang Gantner — waited in the studio until dawn. At the appointed moment, the four, wearing harnesses, unscrewed the aluminum moldings that hold the window in place and used two large suction cups to remove the glass (air pressure adds about 300 pounds to the effort). As warm air streamed past, they outfitted the window with a cantilevered box, big enough for only one person at a time.”

“Photos: Members of Gelatin in 1998, when their exhibition at the P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center included a 25-foot walk-up tower of discarded furniture parts. (P.S. 1); Photographs from ”The B-Thing,” a book produced by Gelatin, show someone on a temporary balcony on the World Trade Center, top; a drawing of the cantilevered balcony, above; and a view from inside the 91st-floor studio from which the balcony was hung, left. Unless the whole episode is a hoax, which some of those involved would prefer that people believe. So they say.”

“Gelitin “The B-Thing” (2000) is shown through the New York Times article “Balcony Scene (Or Unseen) Atop the World; Episode at Trade Center Assumes Mythic Qualities”, published on the 18th of August 2001.”

“It mentions Gelatin’s book “The B-Thing”, which runs to 62 pages in the hardcover editions. The stunt supposedly involved temporarily removing one of the WTC windows to create a “balcony”, for 19 minutes, early on a Sunday morning in March 2000. A description of the book states June rather than March 2000.

That claims Gelatin smuggled the balcony materials in under their pullovers, the balcony could only support one person at a time, the putty around the windows was scratched off and the windows (only 18 inches wide) were pulled away with suction pads. It would have been March rather than June 2000, since the stunt is variously described as having taken place at dawn and at 6am, which coincide in March. And because Gelatin’s “World Views” residency in WTC 1 was winter 1999-2000 rather than summer 2000, as shown here in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s (LMCC) list of artists.

As the New York Times article correctly states, Gelatin shared free studio space on the 91st floor of the North Tower with fourteen other artists. They were Taleen Berberian, Bruce Bosnan, Patty Chang, Geoffrey Detrani, Martina Gecelli, Kelly Hashimoto, Emily Jacir, Susan Kelly, Diane Ludin, Tamara Mewis, Slink Moss, Prema Murthy, Marcos Rosales, and Kimberly Tomes.”

@1:22 and @1:30 in this video, you see people removing the glass frame from the window of the WTC on the 91st floor.

Gelitin – The B-Thing

“At 6 o’clock one morning, Austrian art group gelatin suctioned out a window on one of the top floors of the World Trade Center, shunted out a narrow balcony constructed of smuggled building materials, and posed on it while a helicopter flew by and took their photographs. An unbelievable, completely illegal, and fully secret stunt when it was performed, The B-Thing is now unbearably surreal, weirdly prescient, and forever unrepeatable.”
There are claims that these people are “Preparing the WTC for destrcution” in other words, planting the explosives. However, there is no source for this photo and it looks to be from the 70’s during the construction as you can’t see any windows and there is no aluminum scadding installed. Which tells me this could simply be a platform for building materials. Not to mention since when do Demolition crews install explosives on the outside of buildings?

Preparation of the WTC destruction?

Nico Haupt and Josh Harris rented a Helicopter to stage this publicity stunt of have dozens and dozens of people line up to have their picture taken from the helicopter standing inside the window frame. This is not the act of a secret controlled demolitions team.

Thoughts on the WTC Artists

127 Illuminated Windows Project, WTC 1 , 91st Floor, North Face


“From 1997 to 2001, LMCC’s first studio residency program, World Views was housed in Tower One of the World Trade Center primarily on the 91st and 92nd floors. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey generously donated raw, temporarily vacant office spaces, which LMCC converted into artists’ studios, thus inaugurating the innovative real estate model LMCC still uses for its residency programs today.”

LMCC (Lower Manhattan Cultural Club) was on the 91st floor. They admit they gave the space to the students, but that’s all we have for sure. Listed on the Company Directory for the 91st floor are the names Sanford Biggers, Sarah Gutierrez, Douglas Ross, Keith Spencer and Jeffrey Konigsberg on the 92nd floor. Has anyone tried contacting these people?

Here is a list of the Artists in residence from 1997 to the Summer of 2001. Jeffrey Konigsberg.

Jeffrey Konigsberg is on the Summer 2001 list. Sanford Biggers and a Sally Gutiérrez (Not Sara) are on the Winter 2000 – Spring 2001 list and Douglas Ross is on the Summer 2000 list. I cannot find Keith Spencer on either list.

According to the NYT the names of the 4 Gelatin artists are “Ali Janka, Florian Reither, Tobias Urban and Wolfgang Gantner”. None of them are Israeli or listed in the DEA report. None of these names are listed on the LMCC Residency list.


NIST FOIA #11-134


“The members of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council were invited to use the 91 and 92 floor in WTC Tower 1, as part of a residency program (World Views program) from 1997 to 2001. In this program, the Gelitin crew, according to the New York Times article and the insert in the book I obtained from Gelitin, there were 14 art students who specifically shared the 91st floor together that knew and/or where involved in “The B Thing.””


In this video, Kevin Barrett reveals the handbook with sketches and photos. Many of these images are pictured below. Why would an Israeli demolition team take pictures next to evidence (demolition fuses) that could incriminate themselves? It’s possible that these images could be of a construction team repairing a window and not a demolition team.

How do we know for sure they are Littlefuse Fuse holders? Maybe they are Littlefuse Feed lugs? Or maybe they were Gift Boxes of popcorn or even a Boot Box. BB18 could be anything.

These are high power electrical distribution components. If you are asserting that these are CD components, please make the connection. Show me where the BB18 carton can be attributed to Littelfuse. I cannot see any company name, nor how many items are in the carton package. BB18 lugs are relatively small. Notice the BB-18 part number labelled on the box. Are these Littlefuse Fuse Holders or are they Feed Lugs and are they used for Controlled Demolition? An electrical fuse protects circuits from overload. In other words they interrupt current. Do modern Control Demolition techniques use fuses like Wile E. Coyote and dynamite?

The point is we don’t know exactly what was in those boxes, it could have been anything. To speculate that they were demolition fuses does us no good without proper evidence to back that up.

BB18 – Littlefuse POWR Busbar to Multiple Fuse Holders

Part Number: BB18
BB18 – POWR Busbar Series

“Safe distribution of power to multiple fuse holders in a compact design is a key objective for panel designers. The Littelfuse UL508 bus bar system eliminates most wire terminations in a timesaving package. A power distribution block and associated conductors are no longer needed to feed multiple POWR-SAFE™ fuse holders.”

“Recommended Fuse Holders
LPHV / LFPHV (1000 V)”

Look at the data sheet link. BB18 is a power feed lug used in commercial/industrial power distribution systems. Fuse hoders are a different number. Look at the specs for the BB18 Lugs–1000 volts, 115 amps, #10 minimum wire size. There is no connection between these cartons and Littelfuse. The cartons could be from any product.

“According to Cameron, some 60 Israeli nationals had been detained in the anti-terrorism/immigrant sweeps in the weeks after Sept. 11, and at least 140 Israelis identified as “art students” had been detained or arrested in the prior months. Most of the 60 detained after Sept. 11 had been deported, Cameron said. “Some of the detainees,” reported Cameron, “failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States.” Some of them were on active military duty. (Military service is compulsory for all young Israelis.) Cameron was careful to note that there was “no indication that the Israelis were involved in the 9/11 attacks” and that while his reporting had dug up “explosive information,” none of it was necessarily conclusive. Cameron was simply airing the wide-ranging speculations in an ongoing investigation.”

By Wayne Madsen

“Shortly before 9/11, over 140 “Israelis” had been arrested for suspected espionage. Some of them were posing as Art students. These suspects targeted or penetrated Military bases, DEA, FBI, Secret Service, ATF, U.S. Customs, IRS, INS, EPA, Interior Dept., U.S. Marshal’s Service, various U.S. Attorneys offices, Secret government offices and unlisted private homes of law enforcement/intelligence officers. Most of the suspects served in military intelligence, electronic surveillance intercept and or explosive ordinance units. Dozens of “Israelis” were arrested in American mall kiosks selling toys, acting as a front for a spying operation.

Following 9/11, over 60 Israeli agents were detained either under the Patriot anti-Terrorism Act or for immigration violations. Some of them were active “Israeli” military personnel. A number of them failed polygraph examinations when questioned for surveillance activities against the U.S. Some of them were found to have been spying on Arabs.”

“The leaked report was compiled by the Drug Enforcement Administration after some of its offices were allegedly targeted by Israelis posing as art students. “That these people are now travelling in the US selling art seems not to fit their background,” the DEA report said.”

U.S. papers: FBI hunting suspected terrorists with Israeli passports

Nov. 1, 2001

“The FBI is conducting a manhunt for six men carrying Israeli passports who are suspected of plotting terror attacks in the United States – and who were released by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service after having been under arrest, according to the Knight-Ridder news service.

The six were arrested over the weekend in a state in the Midwest while traveling in two cars, and were found to have photographs and information about a Florida nuclear reactor and the Alaska pipeline, the news agency reported. There are three nuclear reactors in Florida. They also had “suspicious equipment,” including box-cutter knives similar to those used by the hijackers on September 11, Knight-Ridder said.

But the six, who were decribed as having Israeli passports and a “Middle Eastern look,” were released after INS officials decided that their passports and visas were valid. According to the Miami Herald, the INS released the men without consulting the FBI – or reporting the arrests. When FBI director Robert Mueller heard about the incident, he was “furious.””
