Subject: Return Of The Giants?


From 1987-99 Israel boasted a spectacular UFO wave and I was the
reporter who covered it in depth. The incidents were profound,
culminating in the close encounters with giants mostly around
the town of Kadima. The book was once nearly impossible to find,
but it's back:

Return Of The Giants

Available in two editions, with black and white illustrations or
with the more expensive color illustrations.

Many, many color shots of UFO evidence.



In thirteen dramatic chapters, the book takes you from the
pictographs of Shikmoneh Beach, the giant tracks of Yatzitz, the
encounters of Kadima, following the flow of occasional frauds,
much real physical evidence and two dozen photos of the
adventure. Most spectacular are the three photos of the alien
being filmed during the night of the sun at Ramat Hachayal. This
is possibly the only alien being ever photographed with its
shadow following its body. Lulu.com will let you download the
book for under $10 or will send a handsome copy to your home for
under $20. Between us though, order the color version for the
best experience.

May I present the DVD of Return Of The Giants as well? Besides
presenting programs I advised for NBC and Fox-TV, I include over
20 amateur clips including the now famous Hatzor "balcony"
craft, a disc over Rishon Letzion chased by an Israeli jet in
clear daylight, and the only known UFO attack, over Rosh Haayin,
where two UFOs collide and explode. I hope $20 is a fair price
for my work.

If you wish to purchase the DVD, or invite me to lecture or be
interviewed, write  chamish.nul or call me at 904

Meanwhile, here's the introduction to the book:



Return Of The Giants?

Are the Anakim or the Refaim, the giants of the Bible returning
to Israel today? There are only two periods of recorded history
when giants were 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
giants thoughtfully 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,
Ami Achrai was driving just south of Haifa when he saw what he
thought might be a helicopter in distress hovering just above
the sands of Shikmona Beach on the Mediterranean Sea. He stopped
his car and to his utter amazement saw a 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 lasting 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 metere
ellipsoid disk was burnt black into the sand but what was more
interesting 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
television show Sightings which subjected it to laboratory
tests. The sand seemed to melt in the heat of the camera light.
The reason later discovered was the sand particles were covered
by a low melting hydrocarbon material. The laboratory 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 sands of 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 Beach.

By now, Israeli ufologists were prepared to handle the latest
incident more scientifically. The beach was strewn with burning
white metal which was cool to the touch. The metal even glowed
in water. When picked up, the shards turned into a white ash.
Scientists from the Technion Institute of Technology tested the
site and found that magnetism was 6000 times higher than the
surrounding area. The shards were found top be very pure

Two hundred yards above Shikmona Beach is a biblical shrine
called Elijah's cave. Here Elijah preached and here or somewhere
nearby in the Carmel Mountains, Elijah challenged the Canaanites
to a duel of Gods. Two bulls were tethered and the gods were
beseeched to roast them. Naturally, baal failed the Canaanites
but Elijah's God sent a ray of light from heaven which 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 Sightings team decided the image "was a coincidence.
Maybe it was a bat." When Michael Hesemann filmed the drawing he
left certain it was a match for the burned sand pictures.

Although the cave drawing's meaning is in dispute, the fact of
the modern UFO-burned inscriptions is not. Something unique
occurred at Shikmona Beach. Alien craft decided to leave
souvenirs there at least three times. By doing so, they revealed
the dimensions of their craft and apparently pilot, as 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 Beach's sands.

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 miles from 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 the
responsible UFO on videotape. Several minutes of the tape were
filmed after 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 silo built 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 like a
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

However, within ten days, two more circles were found just
outside Tsiporet's 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 by the National
Biological Laboratory in Ness Tziona and found to be composed
mostly of cadmium.

This was the end of Tsiporet's incidents. Now the visitors
concentrated on two other woman in their late thirties living on
Hapalmach Street. The first was a Russian immigrant Mara.
Strange forces shook her house so hard they caused the outside
airconditioning unit to fall out of its casing into the house.
Voices called to Mara in her childhood nickname. Eventually she
decided the house was haunted and she moved far from Kadima.

Shosh Yahud is the treasurer of the town of Kadima. She is down
to earth and wants as little to do with her UFO experience as
possible. In May, she awoke to see a seven foot, round faced
being in silvery overalls circling her bed as if "floating on
his shoes." The creature assured her he was not there to harm
her and she became relaxed. After a few minutes the being
floated through her wall outside.

Shosh thought she had dreamed the incident until she looked out
her wondow in the morning and saw a 4.5 meter crop circle in her
backyard. The ufologists descended on her home and discovered
the silicon and cadmium within the circle.

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 to investigate and her way was stopped
by an invisible force. She then saw a seven foot, 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 your husband."

Needless to say, a 4.5 meter circle crushed out of the grass was
later found in Hannah's back yard. Within, the grass was soaked
with red liquid cadmium.

By the end of the summer, the credible reports of giants roaming
the land persuaded the normally staid television station Channel
One, to broadcast a one hour program on the subject. Tsiporet
and Shosh appeared as well as the ufologists who had examined
the circles of Kadima. To the apparent shock of the host, the
viewing audience believed the advocates of alien landings. The
result was two more witnesses coming out into the open.

Both were women in their late thirties who lived within ten
miles of each other south of Tel Aviv. Clara Kahonov of Holon
was most reluctant to be quoted but acknowledged that she had
seen a giant being.

Batya Shimon of Rishon Letzion saw far more than one. In early
July, two seven foot tall, bald creatures beamed themselves into
her seventh floor apartment. They told her telepathically not to
be frightened and she immediately relaxed. She then felt they
had "friendly faces." 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 excited and called
his colleague over. After a few minutes, they beamed themselves
outside. The next night at 3 AM, a dozen giants visited Batya
arriving and 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 been haunted since their
encounters telepathically, all their men slept through the
encounters, two had mysterious pregnancies etc. But the core
commonality is that these women did not know each other and
separately described the same seven foot tall, bald, round-faced

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 Letzion. The giants had opened a new axis
after Kadima, a triangle of twenty miles linking 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 house shake. Herzl opened the door and stood face to
face with a nine foot tall 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 meaning
whoever made them had to have weighed, literally, a ton.
Thinking there 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 walking almost on tip-toes. If you can call
it walking. Sometimes the distance between tracks was twelve
feet, meaning the intruder was a world record holding 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
miles of unidentifiable tracks are undoubtedly quite rare.

After Yatitz, giant sightings were reported in Ramat Hasharon,
Rehovot and Afula. And 1996 became a vintage year for UFO
evidence gathering with a good dozen craft filmed. Two incidents
stand out. In August, a UFO was filmed over three nights with
professional equipment at Kibbutz Hatzor. The results include a
closeup of what appear to be rows of square-shaped vents on the
craft. In December, a Netanya household reported constant
contact with small greys, the first such report from Israel. The
witnesses backed up their claims with an abundance of physical
evidence, including stones that melt ice immediately without a
known energy source.

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 the seven best documented
close encounters with alien beings provably connected to UFOs,
six involved giants. These giants were determined to leave
evidence of their arrival in the form of cadmium-imbued landing
circles, miles of impossible boot tracks and deliberate
communication with witnesses. Indeed, the abundant evidence more
than indicates that there are giants roaming Israel today.

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 the mortal enemies of the Hebrew

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, the Circle of the Refaim or
giants in English, this site consists of five concentric rings
whose beauty can only be appreciated from above. Unfortunately,
there was supposedly no way for the simple nomads of 5000 years
ago to see the circles from above.

The cite is enormous. The outside circle has a diameter of 159
meters and over 37,000 tons of rock went into the construction
of the complex. Two openings in the circles may have been used
to measure the solar solstice and the rising of Sirius in 3000

The fact remains that Israeli archaeologists are totally
mystified by the Gilgal Refaim. No other complex built in the
Middle East resembles it and 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 were probably 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
explanation for Israel's current UFO wave. I believe the ancient
giants may be coming home. I conclude on a somber note. The
biblical giants were God's enemy and 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.
