The Israeli Photo of MH17 – Who Is Yaron Mofaz?

“There have been two or three pieces of fuselage that have been really pockmarked; it almost looks like machine gun fire; very, very strong machine gun fire that has left these unique marks that we haven’t seen anywhere else. We have also been asked, for example, have we seen any examples of missile. Well, no we haven’t. That’s the answer.”
– Michael Bociurkiw, Canadian investigator with the OSCE, at the crash site of MH17

There is a great deal of mystery about what caused Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 to come down in eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014. One of the mysteries is why an Israeli named Yaron Mofaz took a photo of the plane before it left the airport in Amsterdam and then sold the photo to Reuters, who published it shortly after the plane went down.
WHO IS YARON MOFAZ?
To confirm that Yaron Mofaz was indeed the name of the photographer, I called Reuters in Amsterdam and London. Peter Biggs in the London office confirmed that Yaron Mofaz was indeed the real name of the photographer.
There are some reports on the Internet that say that Yaron Mofaz is the son of the former chief of staff of the Israeli military, Shaul Mofaz. From what I have found, that is not the case. Shaul Mofaz has four children: Maya (34), Yonathan (31), Itamar (27), and Noa (25); so Yaron is not his son, but he is probably related, perhaps as a nephew.
According to Yaron Mofaz’s Facebook page, he worked at Israir Airlines, studied at Tel Aviv University, and lives in Ramat HaSharon, near Herzliya, Israel. There is a gang of the Israeli Mofaz family in New York that runs an aviation-related company called Pentagon 2000 Software. On July 23, 2014, an Irish branch company called Pentagon 2000 Software Erp Limited was set up in Dublin, Ireland. The company’s listed directors are Gabriel Mofaz in New York and Yaron Mofaz in Israel.
SoloCheck.ie, a website about Irish businesses, has the following information about Yaron Mofaz, the director of the Pentagon 2000 company: he is between 35-39 years of age and lives in Ramat Hsharon (sic), Israel.
The Pentagon 2000 company is a Mofaz family business, as the company website indicates:
Businessweek gives the following profile of the Mofaz family’s Pentagon 2000 company:
Pentagon 2000 Software, Inc. operates as a vendor of enterprise software systems used in the aerospace, electronics, defense, power systems, metals trading, and high technology industries. It offers aviation software, components trading software, total power systems software, automotive and heavy duty parts software, support and maintenance, implementation planning, procedures manual development, customization and data migration, consulting, customer support, and training. The company was founded in 1986 and is based in New York, New York with additional offices in Estero, Florida; Van Nuys, California; Singapore; Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico; and Zichron Yaacov, Israel.
Businessweek also provides the company’s address and phone number, so I called to get confirmation of the information. I finally got through to Yossi Mofaz. I told him I was interested in the new branch company they had created in Ireland. He wondered where I had gotten the information, but confirmed that it was correct. He pretended not to know about the photo taken by Yaron Mofaz and suggested that it could be another Yaron Mofaz from Ramat HaSharon.
I then asked him if he was related to Shaul Mofaz, and he nervously denied that he was. I then asked if he was related to Avraham Mofaz, the father of Shaul Mofaz, and he asked me where I had gotten all of this information, which indicates to me that he is probably related to both Avraham and Shaul. The webpage about Avraham Mofaz is, after all, on the Pentagon 2000 website at: www.pentagon2000.com/mofaz/
Because I knew the answer beforehand, I then asked Yossi Mofaz if his company, Pentagon 2000, had done business with Aviv Tzur and Avborne Heavy Maintenance, Inc. in south Florida. He confirmed that they did work together, so I then asked if they also did business with GA Telesis, another company headed by Aviv Tzur. Yossi Mofaz confirmed that they did work with GA Telesis, which was the key confirmation I needed.
The fact that the Mofaz company works with GA Telesis is important because this is the aircraft disassembly company that owned a twin of the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared in March 2014. The GA Telesis twin Boeing 777 was a former Malaysia Airlines aircraft that the company sent to Israel in November 2013, although they had previously said that the aircraft would be disassembled in the United States.
Yossi then seemed very nervous and asked for my call-back number. I told him that was not necessary because I had gotten the information that I needed. He complained that it was not fair that I had his number but he did not have mine. I told him that his number is listed in Businessweek, so he should take it up with Michael Bloomberg, who owns Businessweek. Yossi Mofaz warned me that I should not write anything about his company or the company in Ireland.
The information that I have put together in the past few days indicates that Yaron Mofaz, the person who took the last photo of MH17 before it was shot down, is the director of a company that works with the Florida-based company that owns the Israeli twin of the missing Malaysia Airlines planes. As I told Yossi Mofaz, what a small world.
