Why Muslims in the West won’t Speak out on 9/11 and False Flag Terror

Nick Kollerstrom wrote a book proving the London 7/7 bombings were an inside job. Now 7/7 is the stick they use to bash Muslims with in the UK the way they use 9/11 in the US. So the British Muslim media are lining up to report on his research, right? Not yet. In fact, they won’t touch it.

Kevin Barrett is an American Muslim personality in the 9/11 Truth movement. Kevin noted how few Muslims in the US were supporting 9/11 Truth, and wondered why. I said they felt other Americans would just peg them as paranoid Arabs who think the CIA is behind everything. Muslims in the West are busy just trying to assimilate and be accepted.

Dave Aossey is a third-generation Lebanese writer. When we asked his take on it, he said most people in the Middle East still believe in the American dream. If you ask them where they’d go if they could live anywhere they liked, they will say the United States. It’s not true that Arabs hate the US at all -- on the contrary!

International Poll: No Consensus On Who Was Behind 9/11

For Release: 21:01 GMT September 10th, 2008
Contact: Steven Kull (202) 232-7500

College Park, MD—A new poll of 17 nations finds that majorities in only nine of them believe that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

In no country does a majority agree on another possible perpetrator, but in most countries significant minorities cite the US government itself and, in a few countries, Israel. These responses were given spontaneously to an open-ended question that did not offer response options.

On average, 46 percent say that al Qaeda was behind the attacks while 15 percent say the US government, seven percent Israel, and seven percent some other perpetrator. One in four say they do not know.

9/11 Truth Needs to Reach Out to Hispanic World, Minorities

A wistful recollection remains with me from the Los Angeles Grand Jury for 9/11 Truth two years ago.

A Mexican wedding was in progress in another part of the hall. We activists brushed shoulders with the Hispanic guests in the common areas, without exchanging words or scarcely even glances, as if moving in separate dimensions. Surely our issue could be vital to them, too? I racked my brains to think of what might bridge the gap, only to come up against a feeling that to them, we must seem hopelessly white middle-class, and our issue an arcane matter of concern only to an infighting gringo faction.

Yet any nation is naturally more apt than the Anglo-American to recognize 9/11 for what it is: an instrument for projecting the empire. Hispanics have a historical consciousness of deception and war provocation from the Norteamericano wars on Mexico in 1846 and Spain in 1898. So each time I had a 9/11 book that was selling well – first The War on Freedom and later 9/11 Synthetic Terror – I had high hopes of finding a Spanish publisher, but it hasn't been easy.

Listen in on GCN today for great political insights on election, 9/11 Truth activism
Amazingly perceptive analysis of the primaries by Tarpley, who convinces Jeff Rense that Hitlery Clinton is the lesser of three evil options -
the other two being Obama with Dr. Zbig Strangelove's war on Russia program in foreign policy and hyper-reactionary social agenda
and the GOP ticket of psychotic McCain with foreign agent Lieberman
The clou is where he shows that Obama is unelectable because he appeals only to a tiny group of wealthy liberal Democrats
That's the worst thing about Obama - he will give the White House back to the fascist Republican party
This all fits in with Tarpley's paradigm of the 36 or 40 year party realignment cycle which is now upon us
With Hitlery, this will realign away from the horrible southern strategy that has ruined the US since Nixon
It will be a new alignment of a "bi-coastal, urban southwestern coalition" which will be a much more positive force for the next cycle.
With McCain we go into another fascist cycle.
The US has alternated between positive and negative 40 year cycles. We've never had two bad ones in a row.

Webster Tarpley on Speaking Tour to England, Scotland, Italy, France

Webster Tarpley is touring the European countries where we have an edition of 9/11 Synthetic Terror in print - six cities in the UK, from Guy Fawkes Day Nov 5th through 10th, eight cities in Italy, from Nov. 12th to 19th, and Paris on the 20th.

See for schedule.

9/11 Synthetic Terror was translated and published as La Terreur Fabriquée by SuperTruther Arno Mansouri of Editions Demilune of Paris last year,

The Italian edition, La Fabbrica del Terrore, was recently released by Macro Edizioni, a major Italian publisher, under their high-brow Arianna imprint.

The book has also been translated into Spanish and we are seeking a Spanish publisher, or we may publish it in the US. See my draft cover design for the Spanish edition here: . The title we have settled on is 11-S Falso Terrorismo.

Trick or Truth: World Peace Week, War on War Week seek to link False Flag Awareness to Guy Fawkes, Veterans, Halloween holidays.

Nov. 5th through 11th has been declared World Peace Week ( and War on War Week ( by Progressive Press in California (me) and in Ohio (Sherry Clark).

The Nov. 5-11 initiative has especially enjoyed the moral support of No. California 911 Truth activist Carol Brouillet. This year the publicity vehicle chosen was a postcard for Halloween and anti-war events. For the design, Kevin Barrett suggested a motif using a smiling and a frowning “V” mask, representing the two websites. A design and text were prepared by Camille, winner of the No. Calif. 911 Truth art contest.

You can order the War on War postcards now at Kevin Barrett’s website, . For Peace Week, I decided to expand the design with a more explicit truth message on a half-page flyer, which will be ready to ship by Nov. 2.

Can det cord and blasting caps self-destruct?

Anybody know about blasting caps or detonators that self-destruct?

The triumphant statement by a " demolition expert" on the History Channel that he saw no detonation cord, wiring or remnants of blasting caps at Ground Zero has given courage to OCT supporters.

This has come up in a long-running debate I'm running on an industry forum. The latest rejoinder I got was this

"you have not produced one blasting cap, nor one piece of wiring"

What I could find on the Web on the subject was all about detection of

A. detonators before they explode, or
B. explosives by means of chemical taggants after the blast

but nothing about detecting remnants of detonators post-blast (except that "stealth explosives" has been used as a term of ridicule for the controlled demolition argument.)

Re A, I found this: "Plastic weapons, plastic detonators, explosives enclosed into plastic cases and plastic mines are very difficult to detect."

I am beginning to suspect that the problem of detectability might actually be the other way around.

Tarpley's Rx for US 9/11 Truth Movement: Diversity and Civility in Discussion, Unity in Action

Tarpley: Since we have the 5th anniversary I’d like to make a few comments of my own about the state of the movement in the US.
We’ve got a round table here going of the leading experts in Central Europe.
You might think to yourself it might not be possible to assemble the leading experts in the United States around the same table because of the unfortunate atmosphere that has broken out in our movement….
I wanted to propose from my point of view the following formula for how we can cooperate, because I think this is obviously what we need to do. Don’t be scandalized by the word cooperation.
We have to recognize that on the one side there is a sphere of theoretical discussion. In this any serious scientific hypothesis, historical, philosophical hypothesis can be discussed, should not be banned, should not be censored.

1.Conspiracy Theory: The speed of the collapse was too fast

1A. [Prof. Steven Jones]
You would expect the tower to absorb the shock but not just fail completely, and certainly not in less than 15 seconds as we observe.

1B. [Sofia Shafquat] That's basically free-fall speed. I have a hypothetical demonstration. A collapse is clunkety clunk, clunkety clunk, clunkety clunk, floor by floor.
Say that 110 times, and a major Republican tried this, he took his watch with the second hand and he said clunkety clunk 110 times, it took him over 3 minutes.

"Expert" Response
2A. Controlled demolitions always begin from the bottom of the building. You cut the bottom columns and then the building falls. If you look at the World Trade Center, both of them began at the impact wounds of the planes.

Are You Ready for the Next 9/11? Here's How to Take Action Now

This just crossed my screen: IS 21st AUGUST 2007 THE DATE OF THE NEXT 9/11 ???"

Talk about last-minute notice. I'm dropping everything to put up some Next 9/11 Action Labels on my site so activists can sticker them around now -- whether or not there is a false flag terror attack tomorrow.

The centerpiece is a bit of artwork with icons saying
CIA + 9/11 = DIY.
See it at

Quickest will be to print out your own labels using this art and stick them in phone booths, public bathrooms, on bulletin boards etc. Insert this image into a document and print out labels using your own text. If you don't have adhesive label paper, use plain paper and clear tape.

For instance, with one line of text, "9/11 Was an Inside Job. Like 3/11, 7/7 & the Next One........"
You can write in the date when it happens on the dotted line.
Or 3 lines: "Remember 9/11 Was an Inside Job. Like 3/11, 7/7 -- and the Next One......... Don't Let Terrorists Take Away Your Freedom." (See )

Can thermite explain underground molten pools of metal? Maybe - It contains its own oxygen.

Proponents of the micro-nuke theory of controlled demolition have argued that the molten metal found weeks after 9/11 cannot be explained by thermite, since fire requires oxygen. They say the red-hot metal underground proves that nuclear devices were used on 9/11.

It was pretty easy to find the error in the above argument. Thermite does not require atmospheric oxygen in order to burn, so a thermite fire could continue burning underground.

Thermite is a mixture of iron oxide and aluminum.

Here is the equation:

FE2 O3 + 2AL ---> AL2 O3 + 2 FE
Thermite = Iron Oxide + Aluminium ---> Aluminium Oxide + Iron + Heat

The same amount of oxygen goes into and comes out of the reaction; it just changes over from iron oxide to aluminium oxide.

This makes sense - if the reaction depended on oxygen from the air, it wouldn't burn so hot.
Air is only about 20% oxygen and is also very diluted being a gas, compared to a solid like iron oxide - that's why some rockets use solid fuel.

International Terrorism Expert Webster G. Tarpley Wows San Diego Crowd

San Diego, California – On Sunday, July 8, 2007, San Diegans for 9/11 Truth sponsored a special guest appearance by international terrorism expert and peace activist Webster Griffin Tarpley. He is a leading spokesperson in the 9/11 truth movement, and author of 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA.

Tarpley attracted a standing-room-only crowd of approximately 250 at the Joyce Beers Community Center. They were treated to his spellbinding presentation of the political context surrounding the events of 9/11, which went on until late in the evening.

Webster G. Tarpley is also co-author of the underground classic political biography of George H. W. Bush, George Bush: the Unauthorized Biography, first published in 1992. His 9/11 Synthetic Terror, published by Progressive Press, has received many accolades, including from Amazon’s top-rated non-fiction reviewer. It has since been translated into numerous languages, and has been called “The Bible of the 9/11 Truth Movement.”

Webster Tarpley can be heard live on the Genesis World Report on GCN, every Thursday evening from 5pm to 7pm PST, at


Terror time is here again, La dee da, Tra la la, let's roll in the dough!

The West needs more terror attacks on the scale of 9/11 and 7/7 in order to save a failing foreign policy, according to Lt.-Col. Doug Delaney, chair of the war studies program at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario.

"The key to bolstering Western resolve is another terrorist attack like 9/11 or the London transit bombings of two years ago. If nothing happens, it will be harder still to say this [the occupation of Iraq] is necessary" Delaney told the Toronto Star. asks, "By this logic, if terrorist attacks only boost the geopolitical agenda of Western governments then how is it in their interest to prevent them?"

Similarly, former Republican Senator Rick Santorum predicted this past weekend that "unfortunate events" would occur that will change Americans' views of the war.

And, "Last month, the new chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party Dennis Milligan said that there needed to be more attacks on American soil for President Bush to regain popular approval."

Thanks, guys, but can this wait?

Rush Limbaugh on supporting 911 Families vs supporting the troops

Rush Limbaugh on the air, 3/11/02:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty, and those who die serving our country in Uniform, are profound. No one is really talking about it either; because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11.

[go, Rush! Maybe there's hope for you yet.]

Well, I can't let the numbers just pass by; because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country .

If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.......




However; if you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a big $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

How to Beat the Odds: 9/11 Truth Squads

Webster Tarpley on Rense: Truth Squads can overpower MSM - tonight 11pm-1am ET

How to Beat the Odds: 9/11 Truth Squads

Webster Tarpley is a creative political strategist with inspired ideas how to get to a 9/11 Truth breakthrough. It's an urgent matter with him, not so much about research into history, as the making of history - saving the world from the "neocon fascist madmen."

As an activist, Tarpley always looks for the most effective tactics - the "most bang for the buck," as he likes to say.

When I first met Webster in 2004 he was promoting an Independent International Truth Commission on 9/11. It would be modeled on the Bertrand Russell War Crimes Tribunal, which played such a role in mobilizing the world's intellectuals against the Vietnam war. The IITC is still an excellent idea with great potential and well worth pursuing.

Last year, Webster's innovation was to mobilize 9/11 truth troops to call in to talk radio shows and beat the drum for C-Span's broadcast of the Los Angeles Neo-Con 9/11 agenda panel. It was a roaring success. So many people tuned in that C-Span aired the panel four times, making it the most popular program in their history.
