Secret Weapon ? - Sid Hurwich and the Israeli Entebbe raid

Two books have now been written on the daring raid which rescued 103 hijack hostages from Entebbe Airport on July 3, 1976. Numerous interviews and official explanations have been given, yet the puzzle remains.

How did the Israeli rescue mission manage to ELUDE the radar of six nations lying beneath or alongside the flight path, including that of Uganda?

The answer to the Entebbe mystery may lie with a 64-year-old Canadian appliance repairman and heart patient.

The first hint of Sid Hurwich's connection with the raid filtered out last June at a ceremony in Toronto's Besh Tzedec synagogue, where Hurwich was presented with the award of Protectors of the State of Israel on behalf of the Zionist Organization of Canada for a secret military device he had given Israel SEVEN YEARS EARLIER.

Six weeks later an item appeared in the Tornont Star linking the Hurwich device to the raid on Entebbe. The wire services picked it up and the story took off round the world.

The most DETAILED ACCOUNT appeared in FOREIGN REPORT (we would LOVE A COPY OF THIS ARTICLE at KEELYNET!, HINT, HINT!), a confidential diplomatic journal produced by England's prestigious ECONOMIST magazine.

In an unsigned article apparently based on Israeli sources, the publication reports that "all that could be learned officially was that [Hurwich's] invention had been used in the Israeli raid at Entebbe last year."

So, Israel know how to elude radars ? They don't need any stealth aircrafts then.

Hey this is really good stuff

here is the original article

and here is the extract below.

Check out this...

The idea for the Hurwich ray came to him one evening in 1969 as he read about a rash of robberies from bank night-deposit vaults. "It just clicked what to do," Hurwich says. "I picked up the phone to the police - I knew a lot of the boys - and I told them I think I can stop those thieveries in about half an hour."

Hurwich went to work in his basement with $50 worth of spare parts, and within a week had assembled a working model to test his theory. Inspector Bill Bolton, then head of the police hold-up squad, assembled police and bank security officials at Hurwich's home. "All I can recall," says Bolton "is that it was under the table - the device, whatever it was - and there was a bedspread over the table. He FROZE MY SERVICE REVOLVER! You COULDN'T PULL THE TRIGGER, you COULDN'T LIFT IT UP OFF THE TABLE and even on the table, you COULDN'T PULL THE TRIGGER."

Hurwich continues: "And then I said 'Now take a look at your watches.'" I remember one of them said, "When did this happen?" and I said, "The minute you walked through that door. You walked in there about 25 minutes ago. Now look at your watches. You're late about 25 minutes." - (Most commonly available watches at that time used flywheels on jeweled bearings, in other words, if gravity goes through it, it will be affected....>>> Jerry)

As the security officers filed out of his home, Hurwich's wife overheard one of them suggest that the army should be told about the device. "That was the first time it ever entered my mind for war or army purposes or anything like that," Hurwich says. He went back to work in his basement.

When he felt the device was ready he contacted a brother living in Israel. Hurwich had never been to Israel himself but he felt "they needed it more than anybody, what with the Arabs saying they'd push everyone into the sea." Hurwich received a visit shortly afterward from two high-ranking Israeli officers.

After a brief demonstration they walked out with the working model and every plan and design Hurwich had. - (Small enough to carry by hand?) Hurwich insists his device is not really an invention.

Netchicken, your story sound like a UFO encounter and his collateral effects.

It wasn't just eluding radars he was also able to stop guns from firing.

I know mad scientist. But I don't know what is the idea he had and why we didn't heard anything about it.

Anyway, I wonder how an electronic device can stop a mechanical system who don't have any electronic parts.

the electromagnetic force is responsible for amazing things.

Wow, I winder if the Israelis have used this since. If indeed it does work, then it a war winning weapon.

WOW talk about an interesting article... thanks for the links guys

If it stops mechanical things like guns and watches, how did the Isreali weapons work?

I'm still amazed by this to this day. Then again could this be the ultimate psyop?

Sorta smells like a combo of a recycled xfiles plot and what bulls leave in the pasture after the rain. So it eludes radar and stops mechanical stuff from working too. So how did the planes fly with this device turned on?

I wonder if it generates an EM field that blocks or absorbs all radar pings that hit the field if its the perfect strength. But that makes me wonder how the jet would stay functioning unless its made out of like carbon fiber and doesnt react to the magnetism at all.

Think for a moment.
Think about the Van Allen belts.
Think about the shape of the earth's magnetic field.
Is the magnetic field frying us earthlings? It's certainly intense enough --
But because it comes from the frozen poles of our planet and arcs out into space, safely away from us humans,
it's "harmless" until we try to fly through it, or pass unshielded through the field.

An aircraft can also use this exact model (planetary model of electromagnetic gravity affectation), when it is projecting a magnetic field, the field must be large enough to account for the "safe zone" needed by the crew and craft. I.e. the field is shaped like a "bubble" with a non ionized interior, just like the field around earth.

Flying saucers and Nazi Bell-based craft, like the Vrill ODin and those things, would have had major radiation problems and lots of plasma explosions before the bugs were ironed out. They probably fried some ground technicians too (just google it lol). But once they perfected the process of exciting the plasma and producing a field of the right shape and size, the issue of damaging the occupants became less intense and the possibilities more exciting.

Of course you realize that "propulsion based space travel" is inferior to quantum leaps, which are also possible but harder to understand (yet easier on the traveler!).

EDIT: but about the Israelis having a radar buster or ghost projection, scrambler, whatever you wanna call it...
Kind of cool! One of those toys that doesn't come out of the closet much I hope...
