U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein, the Orthodox Jew who oversees all 9-11 related cases, is seldom discussed in the news. While his name does appear occasionally in the press, for example when he sentenced a “terrorism financier” to prison in April, the secretive judge who handles all 9-11 tort litigation is virtually unknown to most Americans. This is intentional, of course, because any discussion of the Bronx-born judge would reveal his Zionist roots and close relationship to the state of Israel, where his son Joseph Z. Hellerstein lives on a Jewish settlement on the West Bank and practices law with one of Israel’s most important law firms, Amit, Pollak & Matalon.
Judge Hellerstein is the subject of a recent article in The New York Times. The May 2 article by Mireya Navarro, “Empathetic Judge in 9/11 Suits Seen by Some as Interfering”, is an overly positive (“puff”) piece written for a sympathetic newspaper (i.e. one which is involved in the 9-11 cover-up), yet Hellerstein “declined repeated requests for an interview” with the Times. Why would “the compassionate jurist” who has “shepherded” the 9-11 litigation process for years, and who is said to be “driven by a sense of social responsibility”, refuse to be interviewed by The New York Times? Why is such an important judge avoiding the national media at such a critical point in the 9-11 saga – and U.S. history?
The “puff piece” in The New York Times went so far as to end with a quote saying that Judge Hellerstein “is now like Elvis in the 9/11 community.” The article is clearly designed to cast Hellerstein in a glowing light before an increasingly skeptical public (before he closes the book on the 9-11 tort litigation – without a single case going to trial). If Hellerstein were truly motivated by “a high standard of morality and decency” as his former co-partner at Stroock, Stroock & Lavan said, why is he so unwilling to discuss the 9-11 tort litigation? There is, of course, only one reason for him to avoid the media: he has something to hide and wishes to avoid the spotlight. Alvin Hellerstein is certainly not a hero. He has completely obstructed justice for the 9-11 relatives – for eight years – by blocking any discovery and preventing the families from getting the one thing they all wanted: an open trial to find the truth of who was responsible for the terror attacks that caused the loss of their loved ones. Hellerstein has played a key role in the 9-11 cover-up by blocking legal discovery and preventing a trial from occurring.
Having worked for years on the hypothesis that Israeli intelligence was involved in the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11, I have pointed out in my online book, Solving 9-11 – The Deception that Changed the World (and numerous articles), that the key players in the 9-11 saga are all closely connected to Israeli intelligence (i.e. Mossad). Michael Chertoff, for example, supervised the non-investigation by the F.B.I. in which more than 99 percent of the steel evidence from the World Trade Center was hastily shipped to China and other Asian nations to be destroyed. Chertoff, an Orthodox Jew who is affiliated with the same Zionist organizations in New York as Hellerstein, is an Israeli national whose mother was one of the first agents of the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency. Hellerstein, who has presided over the 9-11 litigation process, has a similar connection to the Mossad through his son, Joseph.
This is of crucial importance, because one of the key defendants in the 9-11 wrongful death tort litigation process is the Mossad-controlled airport security firm named International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) N.V., which is the owner of Huntleigh U.S.A., the passenger screening company that checked the passengers that boarded the aircraft at the key airports on 9-11. The Israeli-owned ICTS is one of the aviation security defendants responsible for the 9-11 terror attacks. Any 9-11 trial would require ICTS and Huntleigh to provide evidence and explain who ran their security checkpoints on 9-11 and how the 19 terrorists got on the planes in spite of the fact that their names were not found on the passenger lists. Judge Hellerstein has prevented a trial and effectively blocked any discovery that would reveal what really happened on 9-11.
Hellerstein has a clear conflict of interest in the 9-11 tort litigation, because his son is a lawyer with Amit, Pollak & Matalon, the law firm that works for and is closely connected with Cukierman & Company, the parent company of ICTS. Cukierman & Co. is headed by Roger Cukierman and his son Edouard. Previously, Roger was CEO of the Edmond de Rothschild Group and chairman of the Israel General Bank. He has also served as the chairman of several venture capital funds established by the Rothschild Group. One of these funds, the Catalyst Fund, is run by Boaz Harel, a managing partner of private equity at Cukierman & Co. – and the head of ICTS at the time of 9-11. The Rothschild/Cukierman Catalyst Fund is also invested in a company called Cyalume, which is run by several of the SCP Partners of Ehud Barak. The Israeli Mossad corporate network may seem large but it always involves the same small group of people at the top. Many of the names are easily recognized by a researcher who is familiar with the Zionist criminal network. One of the head people of the Catalyst Fund and Cyalume, for example, is Yair Shamir, the son of the well-known terrorist-cum-prime minister Yitzhak Shamir.
Judge Hellerstein’s son, Joseph, works for a firm that represents and works with the company that owns one of the key defendants in the 9-11 tort litigation. This presents an obvious (and probably criminal) conflict of interest that cannot be ignored or allowed. The Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges has a checklist for financial and other conflicts of interest that is very helpful in understanding Hellerstein’s conflict(s) of interest in the 9-11 tort litigation: through Judge Hellerstein’s connection(s) to Stroock, Stroock & Lavan (who represented Larry Silverstein when he acquired the World Trade Center) and through his son, whose Israeli law firm (Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co.) works closely with (and represents) Cukierman & Co., the parent firm and employer of Boaz Harel and ICTS, key defendants in the 9-11 tort litigation.
Both Alvin Hellerstein and his son Joseph worked for the well-known Jewish law firm of Stroock, Stroock & Lavan before moving to the positions they now hold. President Bill Clinton appointed Alvin Hellerstein to the U.S. District Court in New York in 1998, and Joseph moved to Israel in 2001. They both know that the conflict of interest exists, which is why they don’t want to be interviewed by the media. Stroock, Stroock & Lavan played a key role in the setting up of 9-11. They represented Silverstein Properties when Larry Silverstein acquired the lease for the World Trade Center in July 2001. They also represented Goldman Sachs, A.I.G., and Cerberus Capital Management, three of the key fraudulent companies involved in the trillion dollar bail-out of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Stroock has a long history of representing the Rothschild’s and other high-level Zionists:
Firm historian Jethro Lieberman wrote: ‘It was the ‘Our Crowd’ German-Jewish clientele for which the firm was mostly, and justly, noted in those days.’ That included Otto H. Kahn, Felix M. Warburg, Walter N. Rothschild, and Jacob Schiff. The three early Jewish partners contributed to many Jewish organizations, such as the Educational Alliance founded in 1889, the Montefiore Hospital for Chronic Invalids, the Jewish Board of Guardians, the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies of New York City, and the Jewish Theological Seminary of America [where the Chertoff family is deeply connected].
Judge Hellerstein’s close family connection to the Rothschild-funded Mossad company responsible for the terror attacks of 9-11 explains why he was chosen to handle the 9-11 tort litigation. He was chosen to manage the 9-11 litigation to protect the 9-11 deception – and the guilty – by blocking discovery and preventing a trial. When Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein closes the book on the 9-11 litigation, having settled all the cases out of court without a trial, I suspect he will have to retire in Israel. Knowing very well how he and his Zionist cronies have obstructed justice for so many people, his fear will not let him live in peace among those he has wronged so grievously.

Supreme Court Slams Door in 9/11 Widow’s Face
February 20, 2013
By Dr. Kevin Barrett
On Tuesday, February 19, 2013, the United States Supreme Court slammed its door in the face of the last 9/11 family member seeking justice through the American legal system.
Ellen Mariani, whose husband Neil was murdered on September 11, 2001, had turned down more than a million dollars in government hush money, to pursue the real 9/11 criminals in federal court.
After eleven years, two separate lawsuits, and an unbelievable series of encounters with corrupt lawyers and Israeli-American judges, Ellen Mariani has finally heard from the United States Supreme Court. And the Supreme Court’s message is loud and clear: There will be no truth, and no justice, concerning 9/11… at least not in the US court system.
Ellen Mariani’s petition to the Supreme Court sought to reinstate her wrongful death lawsuit against US government officials and others – a suit which had been denied, at lower levels, on the grounds that she had no standing to sue those responsible for her husband’s death! In fact, Ellen Mariani was cheated by lawyers who were secretly working for the other side, and by judges with massive conflicts of interest.
Vincent Gillespie of the Ellen Mariani Legal Defense Fund explains: “It’s politics. They don’t want any 9/11 cases to go forward…. If this had come to trial, there’s all kinds of evidence that could have come out.”
Ellen Mariani’s case, like almost all 9/11-related litigation, was channeled through the courtroom of Judge Alvin Hellerstein. Gillespie charges:
“One of the problems was Judge Hellerstein. He’s an immense problem. First, we have Israeli defendants here. ICTS (the airline security company established in 1982 by members of Israeli intelligence) is one of the defendants. And Hellerstein is a Zionist Jew with all kinds of connections to the Jewish community. His sister lives in Israel, his son works in an Israeli law firm, he’s involved in a couple of Jewish organizations in New York. His wife is involved in a Jewish organization. Just that by itself is going to create a conflict of interest. He’ll want to protect Israeli defendants.”
Israeli defendants? Were there Israelis involved in 9/11?
Gillespie explains: “There were over 180 Israelis arrested on and around 9/11. The person overseeing that was Michael Chertoff, a dual national Israeli-American. And he sent them all back with a slap on the wrist for visa violations.”
(Note: The case for Israeli involvement in 9/11 has been made in Christopher Bollyn’s book Solving 9/11; a much shorter brief is available online by searching for “Israel Did 9/11, All the Proof in the World!”)
Why would Judge Hellerstein, a man completely bound up in Israeli connections and conflicts of interest, preside over virtually all 9/11-related litigation? Why would Hellerstein’s court repeatedly stymie all 9/11 survivors and family members interested in pursuing justice?
Vincent Gillespie sums it up: “The whole system is controlled by Zionist Jews!”
Here are some of the details given by Gillespie:
“Judge Hellerstein’s son is Joseph Hellerstein. Joseph Hellerstein worked for an Israeli law firm. That Israeli law firm represented a company called B.O.S., Better Online Solutions. One of the guys on the board of directors is a very wealthy Israeli man who was formerly the chairman of the Board of Directors of ICTS. Not only that, his family has a majority ownership stake in ICTS – they own more than 50% of the company! Now that company is a defendant in this case. Not only that, but it is the parent company of Huntleigh USA. Huntleigh USA was the passenger screening company that allegedly let all these hijackers on the planes at Logan Airport. And that’s also a defendant in the case.
“And these are not the only (conflicts of interest). These patterns of connections are detailed in the April 2012 filing by Bruce Leichty, Ellen Mariani’s attorney, with the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
“When they get to the two-judge Appeals Court, guess what happens? One of the judges on that panel is a woman named Susan Carney. Well, she’s married to Lincoln Kaplan, who is entirely involved in the Zionist Jewish community. There’s a conflict of interest right there already. And the presiding judge is Dennis Shanker. And he’s involved in all these Zionist activities. He took this trip to Israel where he was talking to Knesset members and ‘terrorism experts.’ It was funded by Israel. The whole system is controlled by Zionist Jews! So Ellen Mariani’s appeal goes to them! And if you look at their response to Ellen Mariani’s April 19th filing, they’re already calling it anti-Semitic. When they get to the appeals court, they get a Jewish judge. And in this June 6th, 2012 decision, they get really nasty. And just like in the April Gallop case, they threaten sanctions – a huge fine, like $30,000! That’s what they do. They threaten sanctions, they’re starting to throw their weight around. I’m not sure if they’re actually going to get sanctions. But they tried to; that’s what the court tried to do. So there are a lot of problems here. And that’s just one area of improprieties.”
