RETURN OF THE GIANTS?
Are the Anakim or the Refaim, the giants of the Bible returning
today? There are only two periods of recorded history when giants
reported in Israel; In biblical days from the time of the Flood
to the ascension
of King David and since 1993 in modern Israel.
The case for the return of giants to Israel is airtight. The
chose reliable contactees as witnesses, allowed their craft to
be filmed and
left in their wake ample physical evidence.
In fact, what characterizes the current Israeli UFO wave from
others in the
world, is the shere abundance of physical evidence left behind
by the visitors.
Consider the first incident to usher Israel into the UFO age.
On the evening of Sept. 28, 1987, a 27 year old auto mechanic,
was driving just south of Haifa when he saw what he thought might

disc-shaped craft which emitted a bright red flash before disappearing.
Two days later he returned to the site with a ufologist the
police referred him
to, Hadassah Arbel. What they discovered remains one of the most
proofs ever left by a UFO of its physical existence. The flash
emitted by the
craft burned its image into the sands of Shikmona Beach. A fifteen
ellipsoid disk was burnt black into the sand but what was more
was what wasn't burned. In the vegetation which wasn't burned
was a clear
image of the pilot of the craft facing a control board.
Seven years later I sent samples of the burnt sand to the
Sightings which subjected it to laboratory tests. The sand seemed
to melt in
the heat of the camera light. The reason later discovered was
particles were covered by a low melting hydrocarbon material.
could find no natural or human explanation for the phenomenon.
Ami Achrai's incident was followed by a repeat performance
on June 6, 1988
when a similarly shaped craft was once again burned into the
Shikmona Beach, about 100 yards north of the first site. This
was followed by
the most spectacular display of all. On April 27, 1989, two teenagers
witnessed a UFO explode into thousands of shards over Shikmona
By now, Israeli ufologists were prepared to handle the latest
scientifically. The beach was strewn with burning white metal
which was cool
to the touch. The metal even glowed in water. When picked up,
turned into a white ash. Scientists from the Technion Institute
tested the site and found that magnetism was 6000 times higher

failed the Canaanites but Elijah's God sent a ray of light from
cooked the bull on the spot. This ray must have been similar
to the kind of
beam which burned the sands of Shikmona Beach into a saucer shape.
Within the Cave of Elijah is an ancient drawing of something
that was the
spitting image of the craft burned into the sands below. The

Hesemann filmed the drawing he left certain it was a match for
Although the cave drawing's meaning is in dispute, the fact
of the modern

Beach. Alien craft decided to leave souvenirs there at least
three times. By
doing so, they revealed the dimensions of their craft and apparently
well as their construction material. These were not crop circles
nor were they
formed the same way. A very different message was left on Shikmona
After the UFO explosion, there was a hiatus of UFO activity
until 1993 broken
only once in late 1991 over the village of Sde Moshe, some five
Kadima. There, after two straight nights of having the inside
of his house lit
up by an unexplained craft hovering above it, Eli Cohen captured
responsible UFO on videotape. Several minutes of the tape were
daybreak making the result a most clear and convincing record
of a UFO.
It seems the visitors were merely scouting the Kadima area
in 1991 but they
returned in force in 1993. And this time, the occupants of the
crafts did more
than merely hover in the sky.
In the early morning of April 20, Tsiporet Carmel's house
glowed from within.
She stepped outside and saw what she thought was a new fruit
outside her back yard. But then she saw the silo add a second
storey to itself.
Ten yards to the side of this magical silo, Tsiporet saw a seven
foot tall being
wearing metallic overalls. Its head was covered in a what looked
beekeeper's hat. Tsiporet said, "Why don't you take off
your hat so I can see
your face?" The being answered her telepathically, "That's
the way it is."
This was Israel's first publicized close encounter with an
alien being. Tsiporet
could easily have been made an object of ridicule but for the
fact that a crop
circle 4.5 metres in diameter was found exactly where she had
seen the craft.
Within the circle were shards of a material later found to be
a very pure
silicon. I add, Israel's ufologists are divided over the veracity
of the silicon
because there was a prankster loose in Kadima.
However, within ten days, two more circles were found just
back yard. This time, they were soaked with a red liquid and
this fluid would
be a constant feature of upcoming landing circles. It was tested
National Biological Laboratory in Ness Tziona and found to be
mostly of cadmium.
This was the end of Tsiporet's incidents. Now the visitors

Next, in June, it was Hannah Somech's turn to be visited by
a giant. Hannah
lives in Burgata, three miles from Kadima. She was startled to
see her dog
go flying across the kitchen into a wall. She stepped outside
and her way was stopped by an invisible force. She then saw a
round-faced being in metallic overalls examining her pickup truck.
She said to
it, "What did you do to my dog?" It answered telepathically,
"Go away. I'm
busy. I could crush you like an ant if I wanted to. Go back to
Needless to say, a 4.5 meter circle crushed out of the grass

in Hannah's back yard. Within, the grass was soaked with red

to broadcast a

Batya Shimon of Rishon Letzion saw far more than one. In early
seven foot tall, bald creatures beamed themselves into her seventh
apartment. They told her telepathically not to be frightened

They roamed her
home, "floating on their shoes" dusting her shelves
with a yellow, foul-
smelling powder. One being saw her son's aquarium, became very
and called his colleague over. After a few minutes, they beamed
outside. The next night at 3 AM, a dozen giants visited Batya
leaving the same way.
I have had extensive conversations with the contactees and
there is much in
common with their stories. That is fit subject for a separate
lecture. In short,
all were the same age, all were white collar workers, three have
haunted since their encounters telepathically, all their men
slept through the
encounters, two had mysterious pregnancies etc. But the core
that these women did not know each other and separately described
same seven foot tall, bald, round-faced giants.
And if absolute proof that giants were about in Israel was
needed, it came in
December in the village of Yatzitz, twelve miles east of Rishon

Rishon Letzion, Holon and Yatzitz.
Herzl Casatini, the village security chief and his friend
Danny Ezra were
sharing conversation when they heard an explosion and felt Ezra's
shake. Herzl opened the door and stood face to face with a nine
creature in metallic clothes whose face was hidden in "a
haze." He shut the
door and called the police. They arrived and discovered deep
boot tracks in
the hard mud. The tracks sunk 35 centimeters into the ground
whoever made them had to have weighed, literally, a ton. Thinking
might have been a terrorist incursion, the army was called in.
Military trackers were totally stumped. The tracks carried
on for 8 kilometers.
The heel dug in only 5 cm. meaning whatever made the tracks was
almost on tip-toes. If you can call it walking. Sometimes the
tracks was twelve feet, meaning the intruder was a world record
broad jumper weighing about a ton.
The Yatzitz incident confirmed, even to the deepest skeptics,
that giants were
indeed sighted and they left proof that was nearly impossible
to dispute. The
best the Israeli authorities could come up with to explain the
tracks was they
were left by an unknown cult. It would have to be very unknown
for records of
cults whose ceremonies include dressing as giants and leaving
unidentifiable tracks are undoubtedly quite rare.
After Yatitz, giant sightings were reported in Ramat Hasharon,
Afula. And 1996 became a vintage year for UFO evidence gathering
good dozen craft filmed. Two incidents stand out. In August,
a UFO was
filmed over three nights with professional equipment at Kibbutz
results include a closeup of what appear to be rows of square-shaped
on the craft. In December, a Netanya household reported constant

The Israeli UFO experience is unique and very complicated.
I have touched
on just one aspect of it; but it is vital to understanding the
Israeli puzzle. Of

As there were 5,000 years ago and they also left proof of
their existence. The
giants were descended from the nefilim, literally the fallen
ones. In ancient
time, entities fell on Israel from the heavens and later became
enemies of the Hebrew nations.
One giant king was Og of Bashan. The bible records that his
bed was thirteen
feet long. Bashan's territory included the Golan Heights. Sitting
on the Golan
Heights is the Israeli version of Stonehenge. Called Gilgal Refaim,
of the Refaim or giants in English, this site consists of five

supposedly no way for the simple nomads of 5000 years ago to

The cite is enormous. The outside circle has a diameter of

openings in the circles may have been used to measure the solar

The fact remains that Israeli archaeologists are totally mystified
by the Gilgal
Refaim. No other complex built in the Middle East resembles it
predates the pyramids by over 500 years. The indigenous nomads
of the time
did not engage in this kind of megalith building, so outsiders
the builders. According to the Bible, the only outsiders living
on the Golan
Heights back then were giants.
Maybe it's a longshot, but no one has come up with a better

I conclude on a somber note. The biblical giants were God's enemy
Israel's armies were the means to their utter destruction. There
is a legitimate
reason to contemplate the recent re-arrival of giants in Israel
with a good
measure of dread.
