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.

Reiterating South Africa’s respected Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s called last week to bring George Bush and Tony Blair for  war crimes trial in Hague .

    Tell us why you muslims are leaving islamic paradise in Yemen ,Somalia ,Bangladesh, Pakistan etc to suck on civilised countries welfare benefits. Did the Americans tell you to stone people to death or force little girls into incestuous marriage producing mentally handicapped offspring that infidel countries tax payers are forced to keep? Did the Americans tell you to throw acid in the face of girls who are are not attracted to you vermin? Did the Americans tell you vermin that honor killing of your own family is acceptable? Did the Americas tell you your horrific slaughter of animals was acceptable? Did the Americans tell you that throwing stones at a wall and wandering around in night shirts and burkas rendering you unemployable once you reach civilised countries was acceptable? You vermin are not wanted in civilised countries

    Shantha, why don’t you target your psychopathic rage at the thousands of Architects, Engineers and other scientists, pilots, lawyers, firemen, medicos and so on who think that the official report is not worth the paper it was published on! Check the websites http://www.ae911truth.org, /www.pilotsfor911truth.org/ http://www.scholarsfor911truth.org/ veteransfor911truth.org/ among a host others. These might educate you and keep your mind within the borders of sanity! What has the US conspiracy got to do with the Muslims whom the Jews and through their proxy the Neocons were trying to make scape goats of? I think shantha has totally missed the bus here. The site is not Mulimbashing.com and the heading is not Muslims go to hell! So shantha please keep your self on track and discuss 911 WTC -and the Pentagon bombings if you can contribute your tuppence worth without displaying your racist, paranoid hatred of Muslims!

      I forgot to mention you [Edited out] cutting off the clitoris of little girls so they cannot enjoy sex. The 9/11 pilots were Saudi plus one Egyptian trained to fly the airplanes in America as Afghanistan was a bit short of flying schools American pilot instructors only became suspicious after 9/11 that the muslim [Edited out] were not interested in taking off or landing.

    I believe America in her expansion policy of controling other countries which are strategically important to them for economic and political agendas to be met, planned the 9/11 and conveniently put it on the paid enemy, Osama Bin Laden. It was similar to arming Saddham Hussain with all the sophisticated arsenal and virtually pushing him to invade Kuwait for the Amrican combine to invade and liberate Kuwait subsequently, followed by invading Iraq to look for Chemical Warfare Factories and in the process to liquidate Saddham Hussain. However no Chemical Warfare Factories were ever found to date. Next they did the same in Lybia to Gaddaffi. Americans have been succesful after the second world war, to ignite the Muslim Issue periodically, which was highly volatile knowing the reaction of the Muslim Brotherhood and their aggressive nature. War Fare has been the ideal tonic for the Amricans to trade in arms and establish contact with the rest of the world Leaders to do their bidding. When I saw the 9/11 attack live on CNN, what struck me was, how come a plane hitting the two towers at the top even the fuel spilling most would have evaporated and burned out side the building, could have melted the thick iron girders inside the Towers at the lower levels for it to collapse in the fashion it did in a few minutes. This was highly unlikely unless there were other detonators fixed inside at the lower levels to explode to generate the required heat for the thick iron girders to melt and for the Towers to collapse as it did. Then recently I received an e-mail originating in Australia where some Engineers have embarked on a study to find the truth about the two Towers collapsing. As the writer states about what Gordon Duff wrote about the American Zionists, after the arrest of Rupert Murdoch a jew himself, how this outfit has been more powerful than the American Congress and the American President, where they have ben responsible for electing governments and leaders in most countries around the world, including the US for the last thirty to forty years. Blackmailing heads of state, Payoffs, Assasinations, Working on Commissions on large Contracts. Drug Trafficking, Lining up large Contracts from all govenments, the full works was indeed revealing. One need not look too far, see how the US is intimidating Sweeden and Great Britain on Julian Assange’s case and how these Sovereign Countries are bending backwards in trying to oblige the US. It is not only Julian Assange the Americans are working on, why, what about our own case where they have cut deals with India, MR and VP, first to elect MR as President and then ruthlessly double deal VP eliminating him with his cadre and a subtle effort to avoid MR being tried for War Crimes although the Human Rights Groups cry foul. The whole world is a stage and it is a massive Drama enacted for the unsuspecting masses in all countries. Way to go and what can our naive society do alone? Just sit and watch.

    This is a biased opinion of someone who is trying to blame the US with bogus theories. The fact is 9/11 and Al Qaeda were real.

      One need not believe ‘merely’ as a bogus theory, appeal to your own intuition, what is stated and then see whether what is stated is bogus. With this kind of mind set as Merril’s, which is conditioned by the Americans in the world body, America is having a field day with their theatrics. Al Qaeda is something which the very Americans have created as a punch bag for the world to punch on, for the sins committed by the Americans. This is similar to the Wall of the Devil where the fanatical Muslims are led to throw stones at in a frenzy. Not only the two towers collapsed that day, but a third in the vicinity too has collapsed with no plane striking at all, identical to demolishing with explosives strapped inside the buildings as normaly done for demolition.

        The Americans are ruthless and have no human feelings whatsoever. They would sacrifice tousands of it’s citizens or their soldiers to achieve a larger objective with no remorse at all. This 9/11 is a classic case where over three thousand innocent civillians perished. Their wars starting with the Vietnam to Kuwait to Iraq to Afganistan, they have sacrificed tens of thousands of GIs to keep their hegemony going and are looking for more with the anticipated invasions of Iran and North Korea in the future. Who said that we need a Satan to destroy this world when the job is meticulously done by the Americans?

It is they who sustain Corruption, Violence and Killings the world over with their tacit support to the Regimes the world over to remain in Power including Sri Lanka retaining MR.

YOU CAN CALL IT ANY THEORY, BUT 9/11 WAS THE WORK OF THE CIA/ MOSSAD TEAM I AM SICK OF REPEATING THESE. PASTOR JONES WANTED TO BURN THE KORAN. LATER GOT COLD FEET. NOW HE IS PROMOTING THE FILM ON THE PROPHET. ALREADY AMERICA HAS PAID THE PRICE IN LIBYA. WELL IF AMERICANS THINK THEY CAN PLAY ABOUT WITH ISLAM AND MUSLIMS, THEY ARE SADLY MISTAKEN. MUSLIMS WILL RE-ACT.YOU CAN CALL THEM ANYTHING. IT MATTERS LITTLE. SOON AMERICANS AND OF COURSE THEIR ALLIES WILL NOT BE SAFE ANYWHERE!!!!!!

        Ayman, when you state that the Americans have paid the price in Lybia, you must be rfering to the killing of the American ambassador. What can he do for some others fault? According to your Logic killing any and every American is o.k. That is wrong. I speak against what the Americans do. But I do not advocate any American to be killed. Ayman, generally I never condone violence. I believe it is about time the Muslims without being fanatical when some one raises issues relating to Islam without spitting venom and trying to kill, should pray instead more fervently to your God. Leave the punishment to your God. It is this killing culture of the Muslims that has earned you the Terrorist tag. It is about time that the Muslims moved away from that Culture.

    WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives: 1.Rapid onset of collapse 2.Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a second before the building’s destruction 3.Symmetrical “structural failure” – through the path of greatest resistance – at free-fall acceleration 4.Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint 5.Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds 6.Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional 7.Foreknowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY In the aftermath of WTC7′s destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered: 1.FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples 2.Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses 3.Chemical signature of the incendiary thermite found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire: 1.Slow onset with large visible deformations 2.Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires) 3.Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel 4.High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed The Twin Towers’ destruction exhibited all of the characteristics of destruction by explosives: Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at nearly 1.free-fall acceleration 2.Improbable symmetry of debris distribution 3.Extremely rapid onset of destruction 4.Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes 5.Multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally 6.Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds 7.1200-foot-diameter debris field: no “pancaked” floors found 8.Isolated explosive ejections 20–40 stories below demolition front 9.Total building destruction: dismemberment of steel frame 10.Several tons of molten metal found under all 3 high-rises 11.Evidence of thermite incendiaries found by FEMA in steel samples 12.Evidence of explosives found in dust samples This information was extracted from the http://www.ae911truth.org website

      Jamal, these Americans are capable of staging Elections in any country including their own to elect the selected, are also capable in having staged this Twin Tower episodes. They also stage wars including our’s as they did to help MR their bief carrier. The Pentagon crash is to give credence to the Tower Crashes. They have no qualms in sacrificing human life to achieve their political ends. What the whole world has been made to believe is that all flights were passenger liners. To establish this a head count of all the passengers in the planes with boarding lists should be counter checked with the families in the respective countries whether infact they have been in these planes to establish they were not ‘bogus passengers’. This passenger list should be released to the media for Independent bodies to establish the Truth of 9/11, whether infact they were passenger liners and had passengers. With the same breath it must be stated that even if they were passenger liners and lives were lost, it is no real concern, as the US have succeeded in establishing there is a public enemy the Muslim Al Qaeda and that is what matters now. I fail to understand why the list of passengers were not checked with their families so far, by Independent bodies?

        This ability of the Americans staging events where the public is made to believe, is not something new. Even John F. Kennedy’s death was shrouded in mystery where there was an unseen hand of their own CIA quite obvious, trying to misdirect and hush up. They easily put these on to Conspiracy Theories and escape.

    Many Americans are content with the 9/11 Commission Report, but the two chairmen of the commission, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton are not. Neither was commission member Max Cleland, a US Senator who resigned from the 9/11 Commission, telling the Boston Globe (November 13, 2003): “This investigation is now compromised.” Even former FBI director Louis Freeh wrote in the Wall Street Journal (November 17, 2005) that there are inaccuracies in the commission’s report and “questions that need answers.” Both Kean and Hamilton have twice stated publicly, once in their 2006 book, ‘Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission,’ and again in (January 2, 2008), the New York Times, that there are inaccuracies in their report and unanswered — or mis-answered — questions. On the second day of this new year, Kean and Hamilton accused the CIA of obstructing their investigation: “What we do know is that government officials decided not to inform a lawfully constituted body, created by Congress and the President, to investigate one of the greatest tragedies to confront this country. We call that obstruction.” In their book, Kean and Hamilton wrote that they were unable to obtain “access to star witnesses in custody who were the only possible source for inside information about the 9/11 plot.” The only information the commission was permitted to have about what was learned from interrogations of alleged plot ringleaders, such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, came from “thirdhand” sources. The commission was not permitted to question the alleged plotters in custody or even to meet with those who interrogated the alleged plotters. Consequently, write Kean and Hamilton, “We had no way of evaluating the credibility of detainee information” that was fed to them by third party hands. “How could we tell if someone such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was telling us the truth?” The fact that video tapes of the interrogations existed was kept secret from the 9/11 Commission. The video tapes have since been destroyed. The destruction of the videos has become an issue because of White House involvement in the decision to destroy the tapes and because the videos are believed to have been destroyed because they reveal methods of torture that the Bush administration denies using. According to President Bush, the US does not practice torture even though he and his Department of Justice (sic) assert the right to torture. Is the torture issue a red herring? The 9/11 Commission was not tasked with investigating interrogation methods or detainee treatment. The commission was tasked with investigating al Qaeda’s participation in the 9/11 attack and determining the perpetrators of the terrorist event. There was no reason to withhold from the commission video evidence of confessions implicating al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. Was the video evidence withheld from the 9/11 Commission because the alleged participants in the plot did not confess, did not implicate al Qaeda, and did not implicate bin Laden? Does anyone seriously believe that evidence of confession would not have been revealed — evidence that could have foreclosed what has become a massive industry of 9/11 truth seekers involving large numbers of highly credible persons? There is no reason for the Bush administration to fear the torture issue. The Justice Department’s memos have legalized the practice, and Congress has passed legislation, signed by President Bush, giving retroactive protection to US interrogators who tortured detainees. The Military Commissions Act, passed in September 2006 and signed by Bush in October 2006, strips detainees of protections provided by the Geneva Conventions: “No alien unlawful enemy combatant subject to trial by military commission under this chapter may invoke the Geneva Conventions as a source of rights.” Other provisions of the act strip detainees of speedy trials and of protection against torture and self-incrimination. The law has a provision that retroactively protects torturers against prosecution for war crimes. Did the Bush administration cleverly take advantage of the torture claims in order to spin the destruction of the CIA video tapes as a “torture story.” It is much more likely that the tapes were destroyed because they reveal the absence of confession to the plot. As Kean and Hamilton ask, without evidence how do we know the truth? All we have is the word of the administration that told us Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and that, while sitting on a NIE report [National Intelligence Estimate on Iran] that concluded that Iran had terminated its weapons program in 2003, told us that Iran had an ongoing nuclear weapons program and was close to having a nuclear weapon. What about the bin Laden video tape in which he takes credit for the 9/11 attack? Every indication is that the tape is a fake. The bin Laden in the November 9, 2001, “confession video” looks nothing like the bin Laden in the last confirmed video of December, 2001. Recently, the Italian newspaper, Corriere Della Sera, reported that the former president of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, said that Italian intelligence had concluded that the bin Laden confession video was a fake. William Arkin in the online Washington Post, February 1, 1999, described a voice-morphing technology developed at the government’s Los Alamos laboratory. Arkin reported that digital morphing, including appearance, “has come of age, available for use in psychological operations.” Investigative reporter Kristina Borjesson reminds us that “six days after 9/11, CNN reported that bin Laden had sent a statement to Al Jazeera denying that he had been involved.” She also reminds us that the FBI says it has no hard evidence that bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. The FBI wants Osama for the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, not for 9/11. Borjesson also reports that in the “confession video” bin Laden is revealed writing with his right hand, but is known to be left-handed. If the bin Laden “confession video” is indeed a fake, as it appears to be, why run the risk of creating such a video if the CIA has on video tape the confessions of the alleged al Qaeda participants in the 9/11 plot? Why destroy such evidence, especially when torture has been given a green light by the DOJ and US Congress? _ PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS (Dr. Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration.

    These comments are mostly based on theories and biased opinions of a group that hate Americans and Jews. It would be better if these people have put their effort and energy to build their own countries instead of bashing Americans, after all without American help it is hard for us to survive.

    Merrill one can understand your loyalties to the US but let not this cloud your thinking. The world survived before the pioneers discovered America, Whilst their subsequent contribution to build must be applauded, History teaches us that all these pioneers were not saints. Crime of unimagineable proportions were committed and these must be condemned by Americans of the present era too. What happened during 911 is more than a conspiracy. The evidence is overwhelming and America will go into turmoil when they accept the facts. Till then I will recommend you to Dr Alan Sabrosky whose credentials I append herewith. Alan Sabrosky (Ph.D., [[University of Michigan], 1976])[citation needed], is a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a 1986 graduate of the U. S. Army War College. He is also a writer and consultant specializing in national and international security affairs. In December 1988, he received the Superior Civilian Service Award after more than five years of service at the U.S. Army War College as Director of Studies, Strategic Studies Institute, and holder of the General of the Army Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research. Dr. Sabrosky’s teaching and research appointments have included the United States Military Academy, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Middlebury College and Catholic University; while in government service, he held concurrent adjunct professorships at Georgetown University and the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Dr. Sabrosky has lectured widely on defense and foreign affairs in the United States and abroad. His interviews are available on the web. Incidentally he is 1st an American and also a Jew. He has quite a large following amongst the Intelligentsia.

    Jamal, First I have no reason to be loyal to the US, but it is common sense, little inteligence and not being biased can give all the reasons and freedom what to beleive or not. If one can express his or her opinion or feelings without having any fear of getting killed or interfearence by any power (it could be a government, religion or a group of extremist) give you that freedom. I know the world had servived before, but bashing Americans everytime when there is a problem is not fair. When there is a problem any where in the world people look for the American leadership because of their economical power and genorosity. Thank you for your recommendations but once again these are theories by very few individuals, they have the freedom to express their views because they are Americans. Take care!

    They lied about Iraq and Afghanistan and just about everything else. Why are we willing to accept their version of 9/11 that made it all possible? Initially, most of us fell for their version of the events. But then came the slip-ups. The leaseholder of the World Trade Center admitted on PBS in ‘Rebuilding America’ that WTC-7 was ‘pulled’ on 9/11 (See video here in Windows Media Format), which is the standard slang for controlled demolition. Look at the tapes from that day when TV anchors, Aaron Brown and Dan Rather first said the very same words about the collapses. Firefighters and rescue workers talked about explosives and bombs going off, all over in the buildings. Recall the horrific images of the over 100-story towers coming down at free-fall speed, defying the laws of physics. Recall the engineers who first stated that the planes and fires alone could not have caused the deadly collapse. Now the evidence is gone, witnesses silenced, and an independent, real investigation never happened. Sure, it is hard to accept that we have all been fooled so long, but only discovering and facing the truth will set the U.S. free. - 9-11 Truth Activist of Northern California

    “And He it is Who has created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, each in an orbit floating.” (21:33) “Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people.” 13:87 (Quran says earth is fixed and flat and the Sun has a ‘setting place’. rising place is mentioned in 13:90) Koranic teaching still insists that Sun moves around the earth. How can we advance, when they teach like this?? ;) :) ;)

      THE DEVIL QUOTING THE SCRIPTURES AS THEY SAY. HEMA, DO NOT GET INVOLVED IN INTERPRETING QURANIC VERSES. AMONG MUSLIMS IT IS UP TO THE SCHOLARS. WHAT EVER YOU SAY, 2.2. BILLION ACCEPT THE QURAN, AND EVERYDAY THEY ARE FINDING INFORMATION WHICH DOES NOT CONTRADICT SCIENCE. WHAT THE QURAN SAYS IS THAT IT IS SPHERICAL BUT FLATTENED OUT FOR US. HEMA ARE YOU STANDING ON A “BALL” OR ON A FLAT SURFACE. JUST GO TO THE BEACH AND OBSERVE AS FAR AS YOU CAN SEE. 1. YOU WILL SEE THE SUN SETTING AND AT THAT TIME IT IS RISING ELSEWHERE.WHAT IS THE EXPLANATION? 2. LOOK OUT AGAIN AS SHIPS SAIL AND SUDDENLY DISAPPEAR OVER THE HORIZON.IT IS BECAUSE THE EARTH IS ROUND.NOT THAT WAS SUNK WHEN YOU LOOK OUT IS THE HORIZON A STRAIGHT LINE.

    My my my! Enter Hema the ignoramus! What a wonderful discovery !!! After more than fourteen centuries of its existence, Hema discovers that the Quran says the Earth is flat! How come all those Orientalists and critics like George Sale, Montgomery Watt missed this one. Hema what is wrong with 21:33? As for 13:87 and 13:90 Surah 13 has only 43 verses. This indicates that Hema has no idea of what 13:87 or 13:90 refers to. Probably copied his stuff from the dharmadveepaye blogspot! If the Quran says the Earth is flat how come the Japanese Astronomer Dr. Yoshikade Kozai, Professor Emeritus at Tokyo University. Hongo, Tokyo and Director National Observatory, Mikita said, “I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in the Qur’an..”
