Mos Def on 9/11: "I'm a New Yorker and it just doesn't feel right."

A frequent firecracker on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, Mos Def doesn't duck soapboxes. He carps with wit and invective about pet issues from post-Katrina New Orleans ("It's unconscionable for that reality to persist") to conspiracy theories labeling 9/11 an inside job ("I'm a New Yorker and it just doesn't feel right").

I am not a New Yorker

and it NEVER felt right.

What feels right is 911 Truth.

Thank You Mos Def and Everyone Else...

for continued effort to fight the DISEASE.

Mos Def - 9/11 Inside Job

There is widespread contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions in Afghanistan and Iraq causing dramatically rising birth deformities.

Here a new videoreport from Iraq

and a BBC radio report from Afghanistan

Conscience rap artists should

come to gather & directly ask the public & more importantly our Nation's leader, Obama, the tough 9.11 questions. It's about that time.

Otherwise, we are going to continue to kill a lot of innocent dark skinned folks in the ME.



Ed Asner is the main voice in "Up",

a movie that is getting much well-deserved attention.

His audience should hear what else he has to say.

And Ed Asner has

Jewish roots.

So that gives us more credibility against any "Anti-Semite" Tin-Foil hats charge.

Actor and activist Ed Asner has signed the AE911Truth online petition and sent a letter of support.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to thank Richard Gage, AIA and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth for presenting the scientific facts behind the unprecedented destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7. AE911Truth presents solid research that contradicts the official story of the building's destruction with the overwhelming evidence of explosive controlled demolition.

An accurate understanding of history is required to make good decisions in the future. Over and over again, history has shown that the first public perceptions of historical events are not always correct. I, along with millions of others, have serious questions about our country's recent history about 9/11.

I have signed the petition calling for an unbiased investigation of the "collapses" of these three high-rise buildings. I encourage everyone to do the same, and also become a Sustaining Member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Mos Def on Bill Maher's show

Classic appearance.

Maybe I am just overly suspicious by nature.

But if you read the article without knowing Mos Def was on record as openly questioning the 9/11 OCT, you could take the sentence as meaning that what "didn't feel right" to him as a New Yorker were the conspiracy theories that called into question the 9/11 OCT, not the OCT itself. Just an observation.

Nice to see him on the Youtube video get in the avowed OCT apologist Bill Maher's face with his remark about the scientists and other credible people questioning the OCT - in other words, this time it's not just another bunch of paranoid loony-tuners and wackos as Gatekeeper Bill would desperately like his audience to believe.

Mos Def smarter and funnier than Bill Maher

Bill Maher says "I am so on you side" like it is a bit of a threat.

Jews for 9/11 Truth

Ed Asner, or someone else with Jewish roots, should indeed start a 9/11 truth group with that name. Just as dealt a death blow to the anti-truther talking point that no experts with appropriate credentials agree with the truth movement, a group "Jews for 9/11 Truth" would be a very good organization to wag in peoples' faces when they start accusing truthers of being anti-Semitic.

(edit: this was supposed to be a reply to constitutional911's 10:31 a.m. post.)

I have a friend who is an architect

and is also Jewish. He and his wife are down with 9/11 truth. I have to make sure he is a member of ae911truth and then maybe ask him if he would be interested in a "Jews for 9/11 truth" group.

I'm guessing that, based on their knowledge and apprehension of the Israeli lobby and Mossad, they will choose to keep a low profile, but it is worth a try.

I cite the Jewish members of Religious leaders for 9/11 truth when trying to directly counter the baseless charges of anti-Semitism. It might be worthwhile approaching them about starting a Jewish specific group. I would think that the best person to approach them would be someone who is of the Jewish faith.

OTOH, there is no "Christians for 9/11 truth" or even "Muslims for 9/11 truth" , so singling Jews out might appear to be somewhat calculated and artificial. I should note that I have recently struck up conversations with a few Muslims regarding the events of 9/11, found a positive response and am hoping to build a bridge between their communities and the 9/11 truth movement with the intention of further empowering both as no group is harmed more by the fraudulent "war on terror" than the Muslim community, both here and abroad.

Finally, I think the barriers to 9/11 truth for many American Jews are quite substantial, as many who are even slightly aware of the evidence linking Israel to 9/11 are terrified by the implications and many others are so defensive and in such deep denial regarding anything negative about Israel, that they will be some of the last to acknowledge the truth about 9/11.

Just as I think we need to always keep from mixing partisan politics with 9/11 truth, I think we are better served by not directly mixing religion with it. This is the best way to prevent the introduction of wedge divide and conquer issues that could fragment the movement and set it on a course for internal destruction.

9/11 truth is a basic law and order issue for all humanity.

The more simple we keep it, the more power it will have and the sooner we will succeed.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

You said:

"OTOH, there is no "Christians for 9/11 truth" or even "Muslims for 9/11 truth" , so singling Jews out might appear to be somewhat calculated and artificial."

Point well taken. I was just pondering this, and upon reflection, this could (possibly?) be remedied by a very specific statement or clause in the group's mission statement. Something to the effect of: "We, as Jewish people who reject the official 9/11 narrative, have seen how the anti-truth media has tried to equate 9/11 truth with anti-Semitism and holocaust denial, and we are fed up. Hence our decision to unite and fight back."

That would essentially be the point of the group. "Jews" can not as a blanket rule lend credibility to the movement in the sense that architects and engineers can, but the proposed group would be an effective means of combating the propaganda.

The MSM doesn't accuse truthers of being "Christian haters" or "Muslim haters." But they sure have pulled out the "jew hater" card on many occasions.
