|Going Down, Going Down...
1992 October 4th, an El Al Boeing (Israel Airliner) cargo plane
crashes on one of the projects in our neighborhood. 43 people
were killed and it is not sure if more people died. Half-hour
after the crash El Al makes clear to the flight tower that the
plane contained dangerous military poison cargo. They asked to
keep it quite. The authorities didn't tell.
Occupants, firemen, policemen, ambulance personnel and voluntaries
were helping non-protected at a chemical poison crash site. The
most of these men and occupants became very ill. One of the men
died of cancer.
The authorities officially declared that they were and are not
ill. It was and is all between the ears. Official statement of
the Dutch and Israelis government: "Nothing wrong. No chemical or secret cargo."
Now it's 1999, at last there is an official investigation on the
highest level, Parlementaire Enquete. On 1999-02-03 it was proven
that the authorities knew already within half an hour after the
crash that the cargo was a very poisonous military cargo.
We quote Vincent Dekker a journalist of the Trouw newspaper who was the only journalist who noticed something was
wrong. He was the only one who investigated the crash like a good
journalist should do. He received death threats and the newspaper
was accused of fantasizing
The quote is translated from Dutch to English. From his book:
"Going Down, Going Down, the true reason behind the Bijlmer (Amsterdam
Southeast) Disaster" ISBN902540913.
"Above Amsterdam a plane had serious trouble and the authorities
knew this very well. The public told it very clearly to the authorities.
A perfect emergency crash landing spot was available: Het IJsselmeer
(a very big lake). However, 'The Man' chose to direct a chance-less
plane, loaded with chemicals, ammo and fuel, back to the airport.
Even worse, trying to let it land on the most dangerous landing
strip. To get the right route the plane was directed two times
to fly over a big crowded city, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. If
this mentality keeps going on in the airline industry, the people
who live in the neighborhood every reason to fight against expanding
this business. In behave of the industry it is the industry itself
who has to jump to the right conclusion. It's is not only a bolt
that has to be thrown overboard but a whole mentality. To quote
an American saying: If you think safety is expensive, try an accident."

and DJ's, as journalist, as criminal minded cats, as students
communications we as ART12 declare that former prime minister
of The Netherlands Ruud Lubbers and former minister May-Weggen,(now member of the Euro Parliament) are lying!
We like to give respect to those who became ill and those who
were killed. It is proven and became a fact: The government... No, no, no! Can't trust it...
