Today, it is eleven years since the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York and Pentagon inWashington. However the unanswered question to date is “who were behind these bombings, destructions and loss of human lives?”.
This question remains unanswered to date. Indications are that this question will remain a mystery for generations to come and the world will never know who the real perpetrators of this dastardly crime were.
Summing up the mood among the general public in America today one writer stated as follows;
“The government’s theory of what happened on September 11, 2001 has so many holes in it, that it is highly suspicious and leaves more than 80% of Americans doubting the government’s tale. I have come across much evidence from respected members of the civilian government, former and current military, scholars, professors, scientists and foreign leaders and members of foreign intelligence services that explains and provides evidence to show which characters were involved, however I am seeking an answer from others for clues that I might be missing in gathering more information on who did those attacks and how. “
Commenting on this senior journalist Gordon Duff wrote as follows; “America’s response to 9/11 was oppression at home and a tirade of frenzied phobic reactions around the world”.
With the dozens of conspiracy theories and a weak and implausible cover story, one the 9/11 Commission itself eventually rejected, only one plausible answer was left, an answer very much “not for public consumption.” Few Americans know that a team of Israeli intelligence agents were arrested on 9/11 after being observed using “video” equipment to record the planes crashing into the towers. After the disaster, the Mossad agents, soon to be arrested and released by the FBI, began celebrating as though they had completed a successful operation. This enraged New Yorkers who mistook them for terrorists. In fact, New Yorkers weren’t wrong.
Only top members of America’s military knew the truth, the “dancing Israelis” had remotely guided the two planes into the World Trade Center, not simply videoing, itself proof of guilt. Military pilots, in particular, knew the planes were nearly impossible to maneuver at those speeds without Israeli designed auto-pilot systems, not unlike those used on Tomahawk/Cruise missiles. Behind a flurry of “conspiracy theories,” many totally implausible, some obvious to military leaders as part of an elaborate deception plan requiring widespread control of media assets, more subtext came to light.
Though warned of “career suicide” for speaking up, members of the military and, in particular, the intelligence community began putting the pieces together. 9/11 was an intelligence operation involving theUnited States,Great Britain,Israel andSaudi Arabia. Everything was there, finance, private “black ops” contractors, but mostly, a pre-staged media frenzy on the front end, counterfeit intelligence on Iraq in the middle and a rigged investigation, the “9/11 Commission cover-up” on the backside. It didn’t take FBI and intelligence agency officials long to track 9/11 planning back to 1999, not inAfghanistan but much closer to home,” concluded Gordon Duff
However, within 24 hours then US President George Bush accused Al Qaeda, a loose group of Afghan freedom fighters recruited, trained, armed and financed by America to fight Soviet occupation, of masterminding these attacks. The question is whether these rag tag Al Qaeda group of little more than a hundred Afghans were capable of dispatching a remote controlled plane by passing the impenetrable security, bomb World Trade Centre and that too in New Yorkand Pentagon.
George Bush accused Afghanistan’s Taliban government of sheltering Al Qaeda and demanded that Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, product of America during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, be handed over.Taliban insisted that they would do so only if America provided evidence of Al Qaeda’s involvement in the 9/11.
In the midst George Bush, hand in glove with then British Prime Minister Tony Blair, blackmailed and bribed helpless developing countries to form a coalition to invade Afghanistan within 27 days. In the process American troops slaughtered thousands of innocent men, women, children and the aged during the first week of the invasion, installed a puppet regime and established military bases threatening the entire bordering countries especially cornering Iran.
Subsequently almost all independent inquiries into 9/11 bombing came to the conclusion that no Muslim was involved, but they were deliberately implicated to create a bogey to invade Muslim countries and loot their wealth. America exploited WTC bombing as a launching pad for its global campaign against Islam and Muslims to justify its military agenda which has turned the world into a killing field today.
In the process of accusing Al Qaeda and the Taliban as Islamic extremists and terrorists, Bush and his neo con team, led by Secretary of Defense( War) Donald Rumsfeld and his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, associated terrorism with Islam and branded Muslims all over the world as terror suspects, which also divided the world on religious lines and has caused considerable harm to humanity.
Jewish controlled Western media, integral part of Western war machine, played a crucial role in selling this well planned conspiracy.
This is not something new, as it has always been part of the western design to distort the image of Islam and project Muslims as violent, barbaric, anti-democratic, anti-human and anti-rational. They regard Muslims collectively with contempt and scorn and turn them into “the enemy”.
Years ago, the Road to Mecca film fame Mohamed Asad said, “The damage caused was the poisoning of the Western mind against the Muslim world through deliberate misrepresentation of the teachings and ideals of Islam”.
The ‘Islamophobia’ unleashed spread like wildfire through the US and Canada to Europe and even to distant Australia.The situation was so frightening that Wolfram Richter, the Economic Professor of the University of Dortmund, has expressed his fears that “they would do to Muslims what they did to Jews and the next holocaust would be against Muslims”. And now this is happening.
Zafar Bangash ,The Editor of Toronto based Crescent International wrote ;what is beginning to come into focus is that 9/11 was cooked up by certain intelligence agencies to become a justification for making Muslims all over the world feel guilty of a crime against humanity. In these 11 years Muslims all over the world, particularly in Europe and North America, have been hounded like yokels. You can throw a Muslim into prison on suspicion of being a “terrorist”. You can rip a Muslim of his civil rights on suspicion of helping a “terrorist”. You can introduce secret evidence into a court of law with the excuse that you are fighting “terrorism”. You can profile Muslims at ports of entry from many “civilized” countries because some intelligence service has some unexplainable information pertaining to him.
Police states have sprung up in the first world when it comes to Muslims who are law-abiding, tax-paying, ballot-voting citizens of their adopted or native countries (the USA, Britain, France, etc.). Post 9/11 we got Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram, Terre Haute (USA), and other black holes in who-knows-where areas of the world. Words unknown before 9/11 sprang into existence: “secret rendition”, “jihadis”, “Islamophobia”, etc.
Fear and paranoia have become the new parameters for every policy. While the attacks occurred in the US, other western countries also immediately passed repressive laws that were essentially aimed at targeting Muslims. Every Muslim in the US, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Holland, Denmark and a host of other countries immediately became a suspect and was potentially accusable of having links with the alleged hijackers. Muslims in the west were constantly required to condemn the attacks and the attackers. While it is easy — and appropriate — to condemn the attacks because targeting innocent civilians regardless of their nationality or religion is never sanctioned by Islam, it is a major leap from there to accept the official US version and assert that the attackers were Muslims or “motivated” by Islam.
True, the US and other western officials have periodically said they are not targeting all Muslims, but their policies have belied this so clearly that it leaves little doubt all Muslims have been declared the enemy.
Guantanamo Bay was another “gift” of 9/11 where more than 700 mostly innocent Muslims have been brutally tortured. There have been other measures as well that clearly point to a deliberate policy of singling out Muslims who are asked to prove their innocence. These have included the no-fly lists, hauling away of “Muslim-looking” passengers from airplanes because other passengers did not like their “looks” and the now even more intrusive scanning devices at airports in the US and Europe. Muslim women in hijab have been attacked and it as well as the niqab, has been banned in several countries. How will a ban on the niqab or hijab prevent terrorism?
It would be reasonable to assume that most normal people would overcome their anger after a decade. Not so the Americans, and now the Europeans as well. Since the attacks of 9/11, the world has been turned upside down. Far from growing up, the level of vitriol and hatred against Muslims has increased alarmingly.
Washington unleashed wars on several Muslim countries and continues to threaten to extend the mayhem to others. It is only constrained by its military defeat in Afghanistan and Iraq and the financial ruin it faces because of such policies. But that has not acted as a bar to branding Muslims as the “enemy within”. Masjids are routinely attacked and vandalized in the US; Muslims are profiled and subjected to intrusive checks at airports. And on the air, racist venom is spouted by rightwing fascists, many of them rabid Zionists that would never be tolerated against any other group— racial or religious.
Fear and paranoia have become the new parameters for every policy. The attacks of 9/11 have been declared the most catastrophic event ever to occur in US history and every Muslim wherever he/she may be, is held responsible for them. How many Muslims must be killed — one million, ten million — before the US’s lust for revenge is satiated? Thus concluded Crescent International.
