In the past, while holding several relevant positions within the Israeli market, I was approached by the Dow Chemical Company and asked to help them market one of their special products. The request was unusual because it was aimed for RAFAEL, the weapons developing authority of the State of Israel and because it referred to classified technology used until then exclusively by the American army.
The Technical Problem
Many types of missiles are propelled by solid fuel. Regardless their method of guiding their way to the target, all these missiles suffer of a similar problem. Microscopic cracks develop on the solid fuel as a result of the immense pressures acting on it during the flight time. The cracks lead to an uneven burning of the fuel which is impossible to calculate by the computer controlling the flight. The final result is small deviations from the specified route; if the problem is not accounted for, the missile often misses.
The Dow Chemical Company is the unique provider of the solution to the above mentioned problem to the American Army. A special film which will be described in the following paragraphs is used to cover the solid fuel rod and to give it the necessary structural strength.
The Dow Chemical Company production chain starts from three oxide special products extracted from Texan oil wells. One of them is ethylene oxide, which is produced in excess. In order to get rid of the surplus quantities of this toxic product, the excess is added to cotton cellulose, and ethyl-cellulose is created. The commercial name of this product is Ethocel and it is mainly used in the pharmaceutical and food industries, but not only there.
Ethyl-cellulose forms brittle films and complex three-dimensional structures which are used in a wide variety of specialty products. If a plasticizer is added, then the film is made malleable. The relative amount of ethylene oxide used creates various products differing in their viscosity. The Dow Chemical Company products are labeled according to the ethylene oxide degree of substitution of the original carboxyl terminals of the cellulose molecules; in simpler words the number following the product name indicates the viscosity of its solutions. One of these products is Ethocel 45 Mil, meaning it is a military grade product.
If Ethocel 45 Mil is mixed with a plasticizer produced by Philips 66, and then extruded – a regular process in many industries – a strong film is created. The film exhibits the perfect characteristics to be used as a protective layer for solid-fuel rods.
In 1997 I was invited to the European Headquarters of the Dow Chemical Company in Horgen, nearby Zurich. There, a German technical worker about to retire asked me to create contact between them and RAFAEL and to help pass the technology; during the talk it was clear the American military was not involved in the event. I was asked to keep it secret.
The exact development of the events is described in a book to be shortly published; the final result was that I became the target of the Israeli and American security services due to my being a direct witness – and the only one not bound to any party – of the event. Following an assassination attempt, I had been recognized as a political refugee by the Republic of Bolivia.
The mentioned persecution was aggravated by two issues:
I was an officer of the Israeli army at the 98 th division. This is a strategic unit aimed to perform a vertical bypass into the Arab armies’ backlines, effectively opening a second front for them and thus splitting the armies. I have an accurate knowledge of the landing sites in Western Iraq (on an area widely known as H2) and Eastern Egypt (on the 1967 Egyptian radars’ site) as well as of the forces and equipments involved.
I am a Christian Israeli. My attempt to publish a critique on the State of Israel created additional reasons for my persecution.
I am ready to give detailed interviews on each of the topics mentioned in this letter. Please contact me for further details.
