Poll in Germany: 89.5% doubt official version of 9/11

A recent poll in the german magazine "Welt der Wunder" conducted by the well known Emnid Institute results in astonishing 89% of the german respondents not believing the official line 9/11. The magazine in 2010 already published the story of NATOs "secret nuclear war", where the consequences of the widespread use of depleted uranium ammunitions were explained.



here a Bauer Press release:

Poll by magazine "Welt der Wunder" : Who do the germans still believe?

Almots 40% of german citizens believe that there is some sort of secret world government. Even more think, the german government is criminal - an 50% are convinced that they are completely surveilled.

These are the result of a representative poll of 1005 men and women older tha 14 years of the Emnid Istitute - exclusively for the magazine.

The polling institute as well as the editors of the magazine are calling the result "scary and suprising".

Deep mistrust of that what politicians claim to be the truth is not a marginal phenomen. Almost 90 % of germans
are convinced, that the US- government ist not telling us the real truth about the attacks of 9/11, two thirds thinks the german government can be blackmailed.

"Such an widespread opinion is a strong warning for our politicians," says political scientist Nils Diederich, Professor at the Freie Universität Berlin. " I am appealing to the federal government to react."

The complete result of the poll is published in the magazine 1/2001




Berlin Against War  

Berlin-gegen-Krieg.de is an initiative of signatories of the international petition
war-is-illegal.org, in which over 3.000 people, including numerous celebrities, politicians,
peace-, environmental- and civil rights organizations call for an immediate end to the wars.
The 9/11 terrorattacks , as the reason for the "war on terror" in Afghanistan, torture and
surveillance as well as the justifications of war against Iraq are raising questions
that must be the subject of independent investigations, as demanded in many countries.

War is illegal


2) International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.






But remember ALL Germans are Muslim extremists.... LOL! DO NOT QUESTION YOUR GOVERNMENT... UGA BUGA.... WAR!


I suspect

that is what happens when the mainstream media is not as controlled as it is here.

More likely,

... the reason is that they are less ignorant of govt atrocities and don't suffer from exceptionalism like Americans do.

Although all the physics demonstrate an astronomically great chance that the 3 WTC 'collapses' were controlled demolitions, they believe the odds that their govt (whom they continually complain of being incompetent and corrupt) is not THAT incompetent or corrupt, are even greater. Good sense, huh?

Not that they've never suffered from it

' don't suffer from exceptionalism like Americans do.'

Or maybe it's more like, they still remember what happened in their country the last time that they DID suffer from exceptionalism.

This is great - however...

... the question "Glauben Sie, dass die US-Regierung der Weltöffentlichkeit die ganze Wahrheit über die Anscläge sagt?" translates as "Do you believe that the US government has told the world the WHOLE truth about the attacks?"

So it leaves a lot of room for the interpretation of the poll result.

Still a damning indictment...

Agreed. However, when giving evidence, any real court of law requires that witnesses tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth... for obvious reasons. Telling a "half truth", or leaving out a portion of their story implies either a degree or guilt, or a degree of unreliability... or both. 89.5% of the responders to this poll have stated that they believe that the US government did not tell "the whole truth" as regards the attacks. That means that an unknown portion of these 89.5% of responders believe that the US government either either covered up, or concealed part of the story, or they lied about part of their story. Of course, in amongst these responders, there is a portion (unknown) who believe that the US government covered up and/or lied wholly about their role in the attacks. Wherever the reality lies re. the German population, their viewpoint is damning.

Since the majority of Germans

...voted for Angela Merkel and thereby put totalitarians like Wolfgang Schäuble into office, I think they should have a long hard look in the mirror.

I mean, how can you such large segments of the population have these beliefs about a shadowy world government, surveillance, and the 9/11 cover-up, and at the same time vote for people determined to revive WW II fascism as a way of life?

In that respect, my country, the Netherlands, Germany's neighbor, is much worse. Because we don't have any mistrust for authority whatsoever. In fact, I believe we're one of the most totalitarian countries in the world. Dutch citizens get very upset when their privacy is not invaded and when their civil liberties are not violated. We really, really love the police state. Rumors about this country being tolerant is a myth. We love abusing and torturing immigrants, too. We wiretap our citizens more than the US does.

In fact, the whole of Europe is caught in this trend. Italy is outright fascist, with a philandering, whore hopping 'president' who loves to be called 'Duce' and whose party actually merged with Mussolini's fascist party. Berlusconi owns all the media and has immunized himself and his mafia clique from the law.

Do we see military intervention in Italy to oust this dictator? No we don't. Tunisia is more democratic than Italy is.

Why is Italy less bad than Germany and the Netherlands? Because Italy doesn't administer its quirky and eccentric oppression with the chilling efficiency, the unparalleled technological virtuosity and the merciless bureaucratic rigor we administer with.

Germany and the Netherlands are clean and sterile societies compared to Italy. Cold and calculated. And therefore scarier, no matter the whims of a crazy, vain Italian blackshirt nut job who dares call himself president.

The point is: if you want to look for reasons, look to the people next to you, because there are much more people who enthusiastically embrace this brave new world than we'd all care to admit. Remember, 911blogger is a venue for relatively like-minded people. We may be tempted to think defending liberty is the norm. I'm telling you, it's not. Invest more time looking to the left and right of you, instead of looking for the ever elusive 'NWO'.

People rarely truly understand world history, the enlightenment, emancipation, worker's rights, voter's rights, the evolution of human rights, civil liberties and democracy. In fact, Americans often think they invented it all. Wrong. We inherited the fundamental tenets of our system from the Greeks and the Romans. This includes our language. (English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese are called the 'Romance languages', i.e. languages from Rome).... I hasten to add... we inherited our numeral system + algebra from the Arabians. Algebra is an Arabic word. (If you want to have some fun, look up the origins of the word 'assassin'.)

A sobering perspective

Thanks for this perspective. By and large, it does conflict with the basic image I've had of the Netherlands. When I've heard comments similar to yours expressed over here--about not only the Dutch, but other Europeans--I often suspect that it might just be 'exceptionalist' prejudices at work, influenced in part by corporate media and U.S. elite interests. I basically find the U.S. to be so out of whack in such fundamental ways--the concentration of wealth, absence of universal health care, massive military budgets, etc.--that I tend to suspect such criticisms of Europe as coming from people who are A-OK with all of that. So I think it's good that I've gotten the perspective of someone who has lived there.

One correction--English is a Germanic language (like Dutch, German, the Scandinavian languages) and is NOT one of the Romance languages. A large portion of English vocabulary, however, can be traced to Latin roots (much of that a result of Britain's having been conquered by the French-speaking Normans in the 11th century).

'Assassin' = 'hashish eater'. I guess in 11th century Persia (or wherever it was) hashish was the preferred drug when someone was looking for a Manchurian candidate who could be lulled into carrying out a hit job.

Thanks for the correction

Indeed, you're right, English isn't one of the Romance languages, however, like you said, current English is deeply rooted in Latin. That was my main point...

Yes, I'm harsh about my country, but the prejudices expressed by Americans, I suspect, will be about the usual stereotypes, e.g. euthanasia, weed, or gay marriage. You know, stuff that gets the Fox pundits upset... That's not the problem, it really isn't. We share the same slippery slope with the Americans, we're just at different stages and different phases. We don't have a civil liberties union, we don't have any 'awareness' of civil rights. It's a long story. The UK is particularly bad as well, in my opinion.

What Wikileaks revealed is that some parliamentarians in my country and in Germany, will visit the American embassy before or after the elections and simply declare their loyalty to the American government. How sick is that? Some of these people help decide where we send our troops. Which military operations we collaborate in. Not only do they declare their loyalty to the United States via diplomatic channels in the embassy, they offer to spy for the United States on cabinet formation talks.

I don't believe we have sovereignty. Which is why it's so important who's in charge on your end.

And one more thing

When you talk about defense of liberty not actually being the norm, it makes me think of something related that also looks to me to be in peril: A basic understanding of what the rule of law means. I once thought that a majority of people understood the basic premise that the rights you want for yourself, you have to also want for your bitterest, most despicable foe, if those rights are going to be worth anything to anyone. Now I'm finding such understanding to be increasingly rare--or maybe it always was rare and I was mistaken before.

Good point but

it is very doubtful the ruling few gave the citizens a decent choice and if they did they may have simply fixed the election. They would never allow the masses to decide their rulers of their own accord. Like Regifting Robin ... its fixed.

Although RM stated the obvious in response to my above post, he/she does make it clear why they aren't so ignorant. You wont find those percentages in a major US publication.
