Who is Frank Lowy?

let's have a look at one of lucky larry's business partners. for whatever reason, he doesn't seem to get much 'press' around here. please click the link provided to read the entire article. i've only pasted the first six paragraphs.


Fifty days before 9/11, Larry Silverstein's Silverstein Properties and Frank Lowy's Westfield America obtained 99-year leases on World Trade Center Buildings One, Two, Four and Five. Silverstein already owned Building Seven. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey handed over control of the World Trade Center to Silverstein and Lowy on July 24, 2001. Lowy leased the shopping concourse area called the Mall at the World Trade
Center, made up of approximately 427,000 square feet of retail floor space. Silverstein insured the complex for $3.55 billion, but after the attacks of September 11 lodged a claim for $7.1 billion on the premise that each plane collision constituted a separate act of terrorism, doubling the payout. We all know about "Lucky" Larry Silverstein's part in 9/11 and his dubious connections to Benyamin Netanyahu et al, and I plan to do a write-up on him later, but not much has been reported on Lowy, so let's have a look.

Frank Lowy is an Hungarian Jew who arrived in Palestine in 1945 to fight as a Golani commando in the Israeli "War of Independence", before moving to Sydney Australia, where he built shopping centers. He went on to work in investment banking in London and New York and eventually Los Angeles. He co-founded the Westfield Group, which he still chairs. According to wikipedia, "Westfield currently has interests in total assets worth A$41 billion, representing 121 shopping centres in four countries with over 10 million square meters of retail space. It is the world's largest retail property group by equity market capitalization". He has overseen Westfield's regional growth from 6 centers in California to at least 59. At $3.8 billion, he's ranked #2 in forbes.com's list of Australia and NZ's richest individuals, and by the same standard is the 174th richest man in the world.

Apparently Lowy's fondness for banking is not limited to the US. He's a board member of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australia's central bank, which is the Australian version of the US "Federal Reserve" system and issuer of Australian banknotes.

Frank the Zionist is not at all disinterested in world politics; in 2001 he was the associate international chairman of the Israel Democracy Institute, and in 2003 he set up the Lowy Institute for International Policy, an international policy think tank devoted to foreign affairs, which led to him being awarded the Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship in 2005 (funnily enough, it was Wilson who passed the Federal Reserve Act). That same year, the Institute moved into its permanent home in Sydney’s CBD which was formally opened by Australia’s Prime Minister and Lowy's good mate, John Howard. He even joined Howard and Bill Clinton on an "evening Sydney Harbour cruise" during a visit by the latter to Oz in '96 (source).

Other good friends of his include Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert and media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who has his own connections to 9/11, and like Silverstein, maintains close relationships with former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon and other high profile Zionists. Murdoch openly supports the extremist Likud Party of Israel and the post-9/11 “war on terror.” Israel has no better friend in the media than Murdoch and his empire.

But Murdoch's not the only one with an affinity for the Zionist state; Frank Lowy is described by the Sydney Morning Herald as "a self-made man with a strong interest in the Holocaust and Israeli politics." He even funded and launched the Israeli Institute for National Strategy and Policy, which will "operate within the framework of Tel Aviv University" in Israel. Furthermore, according to ajn.com, he is a "founding member of the International Advisory Council of the prestigious Brookings Institution in Washington." According to wikipedia, "Brookings is generally considered one of the three most influential policy institutes in the U.S", and focuses on five main areas of research: Economic Studies, Foreign Policy, Governance, Global Economy and Development, and Metropolitan Policy.

agreed this guy has gotten a pass

perhaps that explains all the attention given to silverstein--maybe Lowy is being shielded?

critically think

This is the ultimate mafia Kosher Nostra these people own everything we are screwed. They only thing they fear is educated society that can critically think. I am a dumb ass and I figured it out so were the rest of the world.

"these people"

When you use phrase that vague, along with "Kosher Nostra," which is going to strike many people as offensive, you're doing a disservice to investigations of Zionism and Zionists. That much too easily reads as "the joos did it," whether that's what you meant or not. Don't be sloppy.

good news

larry horse's picture

that meant

your fliers are all over my neighborhood, beeyatch.......

gretavo's picture

ehhh... you talkin to me?

sounds good in any case... i spent 6 hours after work last night handing out fliers. woke up more than a few sleepers, too! It's now pretty much assured that in an hour out in public you can on average wake up one person or so who previously had no clue, say, about WTC7. Then you have a bunch of people who give the thumbs up, nod knowingly, or even ask to shake your hand. Truthing is now quite a pleasure!

yeah i'm talking to you

you see anyone else around here. just kidding with the travis bickle crap. it is a pleasure until one of your friends comes over and gives you some nonsense about "people just don't want to hear it. i believe what you're saying, it's just not that tactful."

gretavo's picture

ah yes, the old "people don't want to hear it"

no kidding, beeyotches! That's why we have to be persistent. We are NOT spreading gloom at all, we are waking people up from a nightmare. in that nightmare we appear to people as evil monsters and so they naturally fear us and avoid us. Slowly but surely though, as we continue to nudge them gently with reassuring gentle words in their ears they will wake up--perhaps with a shudder--and then we can do whatever is needed to calm them down, some brandy maybe, or smelling salts--whatever works for them. We're on a mission, folks, and I hate to sound like an evangelist but if not for our efforts the world has no hope. Onward and upward! We are winning...

not crazy about Daryl Bradford Smith

or sites associated with him, but the point is Frank Lowy's role in the Silverstein Properties/Port Authority deal is rarely discussed in the truth movement. possibly because it is identified with people like DBS...

Not associated with Smith

I'm the author of the article, and although there's a link to Smith's site on the homepage, I don't collaborate with him.

So little has been written about Lowy that the above piece is often the second listing on a Google search of his name. Today it's in 2nd place, on other days it isn't. But it pleases me immensely to know that he and his sons have almost certainly read it.

A Google search of Larry Silverstein 9/11 also has one of my articles as the top listing, thanks to WakeUpFromYourSlumber.com.
