Jerusalem UFOs

Updated on February 4, 2013

In January 2011 several videos of UFOs over the Islamic religious site “Dome of the Rock” appeared on the internet.

Some of these videos were straight away considered to be fakes but not all, especially several of supposedly the same UFO from different angles.

A former Ministry of Defense UFO investigator Nick Pope said “If these are real, they are some of the best videos ever shot”. “If they are not, then this is a very well planned coordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt”.

The videos show an object that seems to be hovering over the sacred shrine; it flickers with bright light before shooting into the sky with great speed.

One of the perplexing things about this UFO is that flying over the Islamic Shrine is forbidden and four different videos of the same sighting from different vantage points show the UFO as doing just that. This means that any potential hoaxer is taking additional, unnecessary risks.

None the less there are many skeptics. Although there is apparently no proof to their claims, they say that it must have been a Hollywood prank, designed to advertise the later release of the movie “Battle: Los Angeles”. They say that that would account for the quality of the film and the elaborate special effects that would be needed to make this such a convincing hoax.

True perhaps but why then Jerusalem and not LA?

October Sighting


Yet again videos are emerging of UFOs over Jerusalem.

This time the UFO appears to be hovering over a fog enshrouded city before exploding into a bright light and soaring skyward.

Throughout the year there have been many videos of UFOs over Jerusalem, many of which have easily been identified as hoaxes but not these.

People are now asking why Jerusalem?

If these are hoaxes then they are very elaborate. What purpose would the hoax serve?

Unlike the January incident, there is no upcoming alien movie event, if that was the reason then.

I know that there are many skeptics of UFOs and many would not believe in one even if they saw it themselves. However there seems to be an ever increasing number of sightings or at least there now seems to be more videos of sightings.

Is this because more people want to create hoaxes?

For what purpose, they do not receive fame for their work?

Is it perhaps just that there are now more easier access to equipment capable of catching these sightings on video?

What the skeptics must remember though is: yes, there are definitely hoaxes but it would only take for one of the hundreds of sightings to be real, to make the existence of UFOs a fact.

An animal will hide in a multitude of its own kind to avoid individual recognition.

A hunter will disguise himself and hide among the trees.

What if the hoaxes are themselves a hoax?

What if they are creations of many similar events, in order to hide one real event?

Are the creators of the hoaxes intentionally making some bad, in order to try and make skeptics of us all?

If so, then may be they are being successful in their endeavors.

      Show me the fatwah and I'll believe it, on the positive side if the Muslims go after the aliens we all win!

      I think the truth is somewhere in between, yes people see them, but yes they are hoaxes constructed to deceive folk.

      If there are alien crafts visiting us with increasing frequency, they are probably looking for suitable invasion locations and assessing the quality of the food supply we offer.

      Hopefully they dislike 'chicken' or are vegetarians.

      As usual I enjoyed your hub, I have always been fascinated by the concept of UFO's, but do not have any ideas of how to prove it, I'll just continue reading your articles.

      Very insightful. Such a controversial subject with an infinite amount of views. Hey I say anything is possible, and my theory is they exist, they have not "proven" themselves to us maybe cause they are getting a kick on how we are handling ourselves at the moment.

      I was always fascinated by UFOs, and I'm not surprised that they would visit Jerusalem.

      I don't believe in conspiracies though. If Aliens wanted us to know they were here I don't think any government could do anything to stop them.
