Bin Laden backer blasted

THE refusal by Australia's new Mufti to accept Osama bin Laden was responsible for the September 11 attacks has sparked a mass brawl online.

In his first day in the job, the cleric Sheik Fehmi Naji el-Imam stuck by his long-standing view questioning whether bin Laden was behind the 2001 attacks.

"What evidence?" he said when asked if he now accepted bin Laden's role in the atrocity.

Two years ago, when asked the same question, he said: "How would I know? He's unable to be found."

More than one hundred outraged readers have written to this website to protest - while others are backing his call.

Some have even suggested that, far from the al-Qaeda leader organising the 2001 attacks on the US, it was the American Government itself.

"To all you people who do not beleive there were more people involved in 911 should have a look at loose change 911 it does open your eyes and there is many questions that need to be answered," posted Adam of Sydney.

On the other hand, Mark of Cremorne writes: "Anyone who states that Osama Bin Laden is not guilty of the cowardly September 11 attack 'after he admitted to it' is not worth listening too. Of course it is fine to have an opinion, but not when it insults a whole society's viewpoint."

What do you think? Join the debate below.

The Mufti's stance flies in the face of bin Laden's own confession, aired in a December 2001 video.

Despite his remarks regarding the September 11 attacks, Sheik Fehmi is widely respected as a moderate Islamic leader who has often spoken out against terrorism.

He is secretary of the Victorian Board of Imams, leads the Preston mosque – one of Victoria's largest – and was a member of the Prime Minister's Muslim Community Reference Group.

Sheik Fehmi replaced controversial Sheik Taj el-Dene Elhilaly as Australia's most senior Islamic leader at the weekend following a series of meetings which led to Sheik Hilaly agreeing to step down.

Yesterday, Sheik Fehmi, 79, said his predecessor had been misunderstood.

He said Sheik Hilaly's comments comparing scantily-clad women to "uncovered meat" who invited rape was meant only for a Muslim audience.

Sheik Hilaly yesterday spoke candidly to The Daily Telegraph, less than 24 hours after he brought to a dramatic end his often controversial 19-year reign as mufti.

"It's business as usual," Sheik Hilaly said through an interpreter. "Now I have more freedom. I will continue to be a pivotal member of the Australian community and fight for the freedom and independence of the Australian public and against racism."

The 66-year-old Egyptian-born cleric still holds his position as senior imam at the Lakemba mosque.

I read a bunch of the articles comments...

and found them horribly repulsive. "Big Brother" has been busy informing morons everywhere.

Who would dare to wear a tee shirt with such a message

It's actually quite simple:

It's actually quite simple:

When a state power becomes the only super power, it is interested in making everyone believe that whoever fights it, their case is invalid. It is logical, that you would only be able to fight such a power in an assymetrical way .At the same time the assymetrical warfare is what this super power fears the most, because the weapons it's got is build for other great state powers, and dropping bombs on smaller primitive armed groups or civilians, (like an Internet-blogger), will look really bad in short run and is bound to backfire.


what if you called all opposition terrorism and you fought it by discrediting it? Yes, simply stage a huge false flag terror attack, that would make almost everyone see any opposition as invalid, because it would be grouped with whoever is deemed responsible for this attack, by the media that is under your control or has the same interests.
"Freedom fighting" becomes only the job of the super state, all other freedom fighting is deemed invalid..

Anyone who studies history will see that this propaganda is used over and over again by super powers. For example, in Denmark during the German occupation, 1940 - 1945, the Nazi regime wasted no opportunity calling all resistance groups "sabotagers" and "disturbers of the peace", that time's term for "terrorists" . Mind you, Germany ( you know, with the Nazis who that staged the Reichstag fire) was a super power in Europe at that time, up until 1943 , and maybe in the whole world ,except for Japan.
It is interesting to notice, that today's Danish government, that is allied with the US and has soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, do not consider the methods used by the Danish resistance against the Germans as terrorism, yet the exact same methods used in Iraq and Afghanistan by the socalled insurgence is called terrorism. These methods are; blowing up railways, killing anyone who works with the occupation force, killing anyone who gives important information to the occupation force, also if these people were forced to give this information. Only difference is probably that car bombs were not known back then and that the Danish resistance was actually hated by the general Danish population, just up until Germany looked like they were loosing.
Alot of the people from the Danish resistance groups are still alive today ,as they were just young men during the war. Some of these people are guilty of killing civilians,Germans as well as Danes, who were forced to work with the nazis. The same people also helped jews escape to Sweden, which makes it a very complicated issue, but ultimately they are considered heroes and have/ will never go on trial for their actions during the war.
I would guess the same goes for Poland, which also has troops in Iraq, and Italy , which has troops in Afghanistan.
I am not supporting or encouraging violence, I just want to point out that there is no end to the hypocrisy...

oh, and maybe you would like to know, that our prime minister Anders F. Rasmussen received an award a few years ago on behalf of the Danish state for sending the jews to Sweden, so the Nazis couldn't get them, but it was all arrange by the resistance groups, the Danish state had actually sent jews back to Germany all through out the 30's all the way to the occupation in April 1940. (When the jews were sent to Sweden, Fall of 1943, the Danish government had resigned and the Germans had total control, therefore the Danish state had no part in the "exodus")

And the latest Albania stunt is totally ridicolous. Do you have any idea what kind of a tyrani they are living under? The Albanians are fleeing that country in such huge numbers that there are towns full of them in Italy. If you want to know about state controlled media, Albania is just the place. A country that was so hardcore communistic, the only other country they had relations to during the Cold War was China. The most empoverished nation in Europe... makes me think of North Korea. Stolen watch or not, if only Americans knew more about European history, they would have seen right through the propaganda.

As for the Mufti's opinion; There's alot of questionable and outright wrong and illegal methods used by Islamic militant groups compared to the teachings of Mohammed, peace be upon him. but the terror attacks of 9/11 are so extremely far out, that there would be almost no support of it and that it would discredit whoever claimed to be behind it. This also explains why muslims are and were the first to question it, maybe not publicly, but certainly amongst themselves. I remember even Hizbollah ,on TV, said it was wrong. If that doesn't ring a bell, I don't know what will. That, and besides all evidence points to the contrary...

Commented.... not holding my breath :-))

I was under the impression that OBL fully denied any involvement in 9/11attacks on the 16-Sep-2001 (5 days after the attack).

Where he had always previously accepted responsibility when involved...

In a statement issued to the Arabic satellite channel Al Jazeera, based in Qatar, bin Laden said, "The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it.

"I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons" bin Laden's statement said.

"I have been living in the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan and following its leaders' rules. The current leader does not allow me to exercise such operations" bin Laden said.

Full Article :

The events of 9/11 require a full and independent inquiry, where all the unanswered questions and omissions are properly addressed, the truth will set US free.

Many thanks for your time.

Best wishes

It's interesting how

they censor us but we don't censor them.

I posted a comment in the comments section defending Alex Jones' documentary TerrorStorm by providing good examples of why people should be suspicious of the 7/7 bombings in London and the NORAD drills that occurred on 9/11.

Obviously, the moderators of the website thought my points were a little TOO convincing when compared to the ridiculous nonsense being posted, and decided not to publish my contribution to the debate.
