Growing Discussion Among 9/11 Truthers of Israeli Involvement in 9/11

In a recent newsletter the Anti Defamation League wrote an article called
"9/11 Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories Still Abound." It listed various
people and groups who have linked Israel with 9/11.

This "anti-semitic" slur is being directed at the 9/11 Truth Movement in general.
Note that the ADL does not have to disprove the notion that Israel or Jews were
involved in executing 9/11. Their members are so brainwashed and the American
public is so brainwashed that all they have to do is recite the accusations against
Israel and their audience assumes they are false and anti-semitic.

I'll speak for myself. I am anti-ANYBODY guilty of participation in the 9/11 plot,
Jew or Gentile. I am not "anti-Jew" in any all encompassing way. Some of my
greatest heroes are Jews. I'll name a few: Benjamin Freedman who blew the
whistle on his erstwhile fellow Zionists and their cold-blooded "plot" to get the
U.S. into WW I----to benefit the upcoming state of Israel; Norman Finkelstein who
wrote "The Holocaust Industry" and writes brilliantly of Israeli abuse of Palestinians;
Finkelstein has suffered for his advocacy, being denied academic tenure. I also
admire Israeli journalists and historians who tell the truth about Israeli abuse of
Palestinians. I have been told that an Israeli writer named Israel Shamir is
delving into evidence of Israeli complicity in 9/11.

9/11 Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories Still Abound
Posted: September 7, 2006

Five years after the devastating September 11 terrorist attacks in the United
States, conspiracy theories about Jews' involvement in the events of that day
continue to be promulgated through the Internet, publications, books and
videos. Soon after the attacks, a number of conspiracy theorists on the far
right and far left, as well as in the Muslim and Arab world, blamed the
Israeli intelligence agency Mossad or the Israeli government for the attacks.
Today, those theories are even more widespread and some have taken their
anti-Semitic allegations even farther by claiming that it was specifically
Jewish members of the Bush Administration who directed the government in
planning the attacks for the benefit of Israel.

When the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) first released its 2003 report
Unraveling Anti-Semitic 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, we said then that these
conspiracy theories were likely to form the basis of a new anti-Semitic
canard that would linger for decades and be used to demonize Jews and Israel.
Three years later, this prediction has proven to be true, as these theories
gain more currency around the world, particularly in Muslim and Arab

Blaming Jews for manipulating world events for their own benefit is not new --
it is at the very root of anti-Semitism. These theories are a continuation
of age-old allegations that there is a secret and powerful group of Jews who
regularly plot deceitful, sinister actions in order to gain power. These
allegations were behind the fabricated anti-Semitic publication, The
Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. More than a century later, Jews are
still fighting against this dangerous scapegoating, which has made them a
constant target for hatred.

Far Right Theorists: War in Iraq a "Zionist" Plot
In 2003, when ADL released its report on anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy
theories, far-right extremists and the Arab and Muslim press claimed that the
Mossad trained or duped the 9/11 hijackers into carrying out the attacks or
that an Israeli spying ring based in the U.S. knew what the attackers were up
to and did nothing to stop them. These theories have continued to hold
currency -- now pointing to the "war on terror" and the invasion of Iraq as
proof of Jewish and Israeli involvement in the attacks.

Christopher Bollyn, a writer for the conspiracy-oriented newspaper American
Free Press, a leading source on the far-right for disseminating anti-Semitic
propaganda, has published numerous articles alleging that Jews and/or Israel
had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks. He also reports that certain Jews in
the government not only tried to cover up Israeli involvement in the attacks
but have ties to Israeli intelligence.

Writing in the January 2006 edition of American Free Press, Bollyn made
allegations about U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff (formerly
with the Department of Justice), claiming that Chertoff's family worked for
the Mossad. Bollyn states, "Zionist agents in key positions in the U.S.
government, like Michael Chertoff at the Dept. of Justice, the son of one of
Israel's first Mossad agents, facilitated the 9-11 cover-up by releasing
scores of arrested Israeli agents and assigning blame to Muslims in order to
stare the War on Terror."

In a 2005 article in the publication, Bollyn wrote:

"From the very morning aircraft smashed into the World Trade Center (WTC) and
the Pentagon, news reports have indicated Israeli intelligence being involved
in the events of 9/11 and the planting of 'false flags' to blame Arab
terrorists and mold public opinion to support the pre-planned 'war on

In addition to numerous articles, the American Free Press publishes book
reviews promoting Jewish or Israeli involvement in the 9/11 attacks. In
recent issues, the paper lauded two such books: Enemies by Design and 9-11
Evil: Israel's Central Role in the September 11, 2001, Terrorist Attacks.

In more recent versions of anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theories, many of the
theorists go beyond Israel's involvement in the 9/11 attacks and claim that
Jewish members of the Bush Administration played a central role in the
attacks. These theorists allege that these Jews orchestrated a plan well
before 9/11 with the goal of invading Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries
and allowing the U.S. and Israel to seize control of resources in that area.

On, a conspiracy-oriented Web site that contains anti-Semitic
material, Douglas Herman, the author of "Connecting the Dots=Zionists and
911," asks, "Was it only a coincidence that so many rich and powerful Jewish
Americans played a pivotal role, or performed a supporting role in the
alleged 'terrorist attack' on September 11, 2001 and the 'War on Terror' that
followed?" Referring to former Bush Administration figures Paul Wolfowitz,
Richard Perle and others, Herman writes that their goal was: "Strengthen
Israel; weaken the tyrannical Islamic states; hasten US hegemony of scarce
resources for key global players and multinationals."

Another anti-Semitic conspiracy publication, Criminal Politics often ties Jews
and "the Zionists" into 9/11 and the Iraq war. In the July 2006 issue,
Lawrence Patterson, the publisher goes farther by alleging that the Iraq war
was part of a plot to help Israel get rid of Arabs. He writes that 9/11
was "the next stage in the Zionist agenda."

He continues:

"The war-free period between Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. ended abruptly on September
11, 01. The genocide of 3,000 Americans…set the stage for the invasion of
Afghanistan. Then using the excuse of destruction of biological and chemical
agents and/or regime change—160,000 troops were sent to Iraq. The 2nd Iraq
war has been extremely successful for Israeli interests. As we have
recently seen, a full blown CIVIL war has ensued between the different
religious groups resulting in—of course—fewer Arabs to attack Jews in

David Duke: A Hatemonger Promotes 9/11 Conspiracy Theories
During the week leading up to the five-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks,
the notorious white supremacist and former Klansman David Duke has repeated
anti-Semitic allegations on his Web site about an Israeli spying ring in the
U.S. that was tracking the 9/11 hijackers' every move but failed to pass
their knowledge on to the U.S. Like Christopher Bollyn of American Free
Press, he also claims that Jewish members of the government are trying to
prevent the public from learning about Israeli involvement in the attacks.

Duke asserts that U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff was behind the
cover-up that prevented the exposure of Israel's involvement in the 9/11
attacks. He writes:

"One of those in the Justice Department cover up was Michael Chertoff who
became head of the Terrorism Task Force in the Attorney General's office. If
the Israeli spy ring was to be prosecuted, Chertoff was the man to do it.
(Chertoff by the way is an extreme Jewish supremacist whose very appropriate
name means "devil" in its original Jewish-Russian)."

On his Web site, Duke claims that "the Zionists," working with "Jewish news
producers and editors," quashed the story of the alleged Israeli spying ring
tracking the 9/11 terrorists. He also alleges that the same
Jewish-controlled government and media instigated the subsequent invasion of
Iraq. Duke writes, "Our press was unanimous in backing the neoJewishcon
[sic] lies and hustled America off to this war for Israel."

Far left: Israel is a 'Terrorist Nation'
Anti-Semites on the far left have similar points of view. Israel Shamir, a
Russian-born Jew who converted to Orthodox Christianity, and is a longtime
supporter of leftist causes, has devoted himself to exposing the racism and
xenophobia that he says festers at the core of Judaism and Zionism. He
believes that the U.S. government and Israel created 9/11 to carry out
anti-Muslim policies.

On his Web site, Shamir writes:

"There is no case to presume existence of Islamic Terror at all. Until we come
to 9/11, when President Bush proclaimed its existence and announced the World
Wide Muslim Conspiracy of al Qaeeda. The perpetrators of the 9/11 are still
unknown to us... On the other hand, there is an accumulating evidence of
Israeli Connection. Israel utilized the 9/11 events to its full capacity:
present massacre in the Palestinian cities is described as 'the war on
terror'. The Muslim neighbours of Israel were terrorised into passivity by
the American rage. Destruction of Afghanistan raised the threshold of the
world sensitivity to horror, and made possible the present invasion of
Palestinian cities."

Muslim and Other Sources: Israel/Jews Behind 9/11
Conspiracy theorists on the far right and far left are not the only ones to
allege that Jews or Israel were behind the September 11 attacks. In February
2004, during a lecture at the University of California, Irvine sponsored by
the Muslim Student Union, Amiri Abdul Malik Ali, the Imam of Masjid Al-Islam
in Oakland, claimed that the Iraqi war was in the process of "Israelization"
and that Zionists had "Congress, the media and the FBI in their back pocket."
He also said that, "the Israelis knew about and were 'in-control' of 9-11"
and that it "was staged to give an excuse to wage war against Muslims around
the world."

In addition, at a July 2003 press conference in Morristown, New Jersey, Malik
Zulu Shabazz, National Chairman of the New Black Panthers, said: "If 3,000
people perished in the World Trade Center attacks and the Jewish population
is 10 percent, you show me records of 300 Jewish people dying in the World
Trade Center…We're daring anyone to dispute its truth. They got their people
out." Shabazz also blamed the September 11 attacks on Jews during a
three-hour meeting in October 2001 with "Muslims for Truth and Justice" (an
apparent ad hoc coalition of several American Muslim organizations) at the
National Press Club, which was broadcast on C-SPAN.

Jewish-Controlled Media and Government

Additionally, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel conspiracy theorists believe that
the "Jewish-controlled media and government" have prevented the "real story"
about Jewish/Israeli involvement in 9/11 from being broadcast. David Duke
and others have often repeated this theme.

James Petras, a radical professor who contributes to the left-wing online
journal Rebelion, also writes about Israeli involvement in the 9/11 attacks
and "Zionist" influence on the government:

"The stories implicating Israel [in the 9/11 attacks] were completely
dismissed by all the media and political leaders across the spectrum. Now
U.S. federal investigators reveals [sic] that the Israeli's [sic] may have
known about the attack before it occurred and not shared it. This raises the
question of the relationships between the Arab terrorists and the Israeli
secret police. Did the Israelis penetrate the group or pick up information
about them? Federal investigators' confidential information could probably
clarify these vital questions. But will the confidential information ever
become public? Most likely not. For the very reason that it would expose
Israeli influence in the U.S. via its secret agents and more importantly via
its powerful overseas lobby and allies in government and finance. The lack of
any public statement concerning Israel's possible knowledge of 9/11 is
indicative of the vast, ubiquitous and aggressive nature of its powerful
diaspora supporters."

The Arab media has made similar statements. In a 2004 report issued by the
Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), numerous sources quoted in the
Arab press reiterated conspiracy theories blaming both the U.S. government,
as well Israel and/or Jews, for the 9/11 attacks.

A typical comment published in April 2004 by the Egyptian government daily
Al-Gumhouriyya indicated that not only were Jews involved in the attack, they
were also behind the government and media cover-up. The article stated:

"We also find a heavy blackout by America regarding the results of the
investigations into the September 11 events. So far it has published no
conclusions, and has not told us who the real perpetrator of these events is,
as revealed by the investigations. Since America knows very well that the
Jews and the Mossad are behind these events, it will never declare the
results of the investigations..."

The Iranian media offered a similar view in the MEMRI report. In June 2004,
Jaam-E-Jam, the Iranian government TV channel, aired a series about the 9/11
attacks. The program stated, "The claim that Israel was involved in the
blasts of September 11 and used it as a basis of America's new strategy for
fighting the world of Islam disappeared in the media coverage, but world
public opinion still believes this possibility."

If I am anti-Semitic for

If I am anti-Semitic for thinking elements of the MOSSAD were involved, then I am also un-American for believing Dick Cheney was the ultimate mastermind.

Whatever, ADL. Your divisive, Zionist rhetoric is getting more transparent by the day.

Agreed, Kameelyun

as a christian/protestant american, i must then be anti-christian and anti-american to believe that my government's christian/protestant/American leaders are corrupt and complicit, along with elements of the mossad~
people wake up and follow truth and justice, not your antiquated alignments and identities.

thanks for the post. k

"I am sure you may find others who share your thoughts elsewhere. Attempts to mingle 9/11 Activism with Antisemitism / Holocaust Denial will not be tolerated at"

Not supporting that, I'm not. Fact, may just add it to the last bit of me end of the year "tidy up"...

The truth is immutable.

To me, it matters least of all whether the perpetrators of the terror attacks were Muslim, gentile, Jewish, or atheist-- It is clear that the acts were carried out by a sophisticated criminal cabal at the very highest levels of government, not an angry group of fringe fanatics. No one is going to scapegoat "the Jews" -- and certainly not in the way that "the Muslims" already have been (think about that one for a moment).

Hundreds of thousands of human beings have already been slaughtered with the help of America, with our dollars, based on another BIg Lie. The majority of the citizens of this country have been living in a cocoon of ignorance, imposed by disinformation and propaganda--and that is gradually changing.

The truth is immutable. One can either accept it in its entirety, willingly obfuscate and deny its existence completely, or cherry pick aspects one finds to be convenient. I am not afraid of the truth, or where it leads.




Follow the truth wherever it leads and whomever it implicates.

WTC 9-11-2001 was a Neocon-Zionist conspiracy-

Wonder what they are afraid of?

the semantics of anti-semitic guilt trips. Readers, please do your own research about the holocaust, and see what you find out. The holocaust is Israel's justification for existence.

The ADL has long been accused of having ties to organized crime

It has long been asserted that the ADL has had ties to the likes of Meyer Lansky and "Murder Incorporated". Is this just business as usual for them?

Binary thinking, roadblock to Truth.

Those who are seeking to hide their agenda and deeds skillfully make use of a simple ploy:

Impose Binary Thinking onto the subject, and presto; Anyone who opposes the pillaging of our economy by illegal aliens is a racist Mexican-hater. Make that the issue, to discredit rational opposition based on economic and just merit. Then you are shielded from having to address the facts of the core issue.

It's nothing more that a "Straw-man" diversion from the actual issue at hand.

The way to overcome it is to point it out as clearly being what it is, noting its absurdity and irrelavence, and addressing the facts at hand.

The facts clearly point to an Israli component in the interlocking circles of motive, means, and opportunity which link smoothly into the neocon and general "military industrial complex" set.

Religion is only a factor for those who choose to make it one, to divert attention from actual investigation of core issues by defaming the investigator.

Let's not play into this nonsense and get on with exposing the guilty parties and their agendas without regard for any particular story-book affiliation.

Treading the Psychological Minefield

One way to look at this is to compare institutions such as the ADL to the CIA. The American people were told that the CIA was created in the interest of US "national security". The National Security Act of 1947 was allegedly intended to protect the US Constitution. Nonetheless, it is clear that the CIA was a creation of the Wall Street establishment, and that it has been used as a covert for large-scale criminal activities since its inception. Similarly, the ADL was created with ostensibly honorable intentions, but has likely been involved in manipulating public opinion in order to protect malicious criminals from prosecution and scrutiny.

Recall the OJ trial and what Shapiro said about Cochran's closing arguments.
