ZIM Shipping

From 911myths

There have been several claims of Israeli-related 9/11 foreknowledge, and one of the first to emerge was the story of ZIM Shipping.

Here it's claimed they broke their lease. However, another account says not:

And having some ZIM employees in the towers on 9/11 isn't what we'd expect from anyone who knows what’s going to happen.

Talk of "breaking the lease" is aimed to make you think they left in a hurry, but again, other accounts say otherwise. The President of the company said “initial planning for this move began as part of a Go Forward Plan initiated almost two years ago”. It had been announced the previous April that they were going to relocate to Norfolk, Virginia, in April 2001.

If this still seems like “too much of a coincidence”, then let’s put it in perspective:

That was 430+ companies in buildings 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7. If, just hypothetically, 5% of the companies moved out every year, that would be 21 in total, or about one every two and a half weeks if they were spread evenly throughout the year. And having someone move out two weeks before any given date would be no surprise at all. We’ve no idea if that 5% figure is accurate, but that’s the kind of issue that needs to be considered before we decide how much of a “coincidence” this really is.

Of course there are those who will say it’s odd that it’s an Israeli company, given the missing “4,000 workers” or the Odigo message. But then that only raises another question. If If Israel supposedly knew of the attacks in advance, and issued these warnings, then why did they forget to warn the Israeli company ClearForest?

Odd, really, because this is starting to look very inconsistent. Zim had enough “forewarning” to move out months in advance, Odigo got a message sent to the wrong place that didn’t identify the target, only a couple of hours before the attacks, and ClearForest didn’t get a warning at all. Clear proof of Israeli foreknowledge? We don’t think so.
