Note: I originally published this independently at instablogg.com, then had the majority of segments published by Dr. Kevin Barrett on Veterans Today, and have decided to bring it here for some additional clarification and updates. Think critically and enjoy.
Introduction/Challenge to ‘Debunkers’:
It’s time for ‘debunkers’ to showcase their years of hard work. I’m looking for a concise and agreed-upon explanation for each of the following items so that we might forever put to rest these ‘nonsense conspiracy theories’ about 9/11.
Ideally, I’m hoping for a 1-4 sentence long, simplified explanation for each of these listed circumstances, explaining how they fit into the widely-accepted narrative. If any of these conditions were not present as alleged, or if you find them to be irrelevant, just explain a more accurate interpretation of the corresponding data.
Choose any number or set of numbers from the following list. For each point, write what you believe to be the official stance relative to the mainstream “Arab terrorist” narrative. Consistency and consensus is what we’re looking for. The goal of this article is to have each of these points adequately addressed in order to demonstrate, for any future “truthers”, that there is a reasonable explanation for these circumstances that was simply overlooked by the 9/11 Truth movement.
Eventually, I would like to be able to construct a full outline of the ‘debunker’ consensus on these most-relevant aspects of 9/11.
Some of the points, below, may seem familiar. Special thanks to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (VIDEO) and all of the honest institutions and individuals who have made this article possible.
1. Rapid onset of collapse
2. Sounds of explosions at ground floor reported immediately before the building’s destruction
3. Symmetrical “structural failure” – through the path of greatest resistance – at free-fall acceleration
4. Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint
5. Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
6. Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional — referring to the evidently bias-free testimony of the late Danny Jowenko (link)
7. Foreknowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY (particularly the numerous media announcements of the WTC7 collapse more than 20 minutes prior to its occurrence)
8. FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples
9. Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses
10. Very few visible fire deformations prior to complete collapse of WTC7
11. No evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
12. High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed (One Meridian Plaza, First Interstate Bank)
Regarding the Twin Towers:
13. Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at nearly free-fall acceleration
14. Improbable symmetry of debris distribution
15. Extremely rapid onset of destruction
16. Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes offset from actual collapse
17. Multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally
18. Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking
19. Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
20. 1200-foot-diameter debris field: no “pancaked” floors found
21. Isolated explosive ejections 20–40 stories below demolition front
22. Total building destruction: dismemberment of steel frame
23. Several tons of molten metal found under both high-rises
24. Evidence of explosives found in steel and dust samples
25. Prominent figures including the head structural engineer for the WTC stated that the Twin Towers were over-engineered and more than capable of withstanding the resulting fires and impact of a large jetliner
Regarding Flight 77:
26. Hundreds of highly-trained pilots have contended that Hani Hanjour’s training as a pilot would have made him essentially incapable of his alleged flight path into the Pentagon.
27. According to the FAA memo of May 21, 2003 and other statements from relevant authorities, the US military had plenty of time and enough resources to have defended an incoming attack on the Pentagon. However, their failure to do so might be explained by the fact that numerous “war games” training exercises were being conducted on 9/11 under the management of Vice President Dick Cheney (who had been appointed this task only four months earlier). This made it nearly impossible for the Air Force to respond and included a “live-fly” simulation drill of a commercial plane hijacking as well as “false blips” on FAA radar screens (Ruppert, M. 2004. “Crossing the Rubicon”). Cheney is a former Halliburton chairman and a recent board member for the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA).
Regarding Flight 93:
28. According to several eyewitnesses, human remains were virtually non-existent at the crash site — private investigators were not permitted and no independent source has identified the remains of any passenger.
29. Cell-phones were purported to have been in-use on Flight 93 with altitudes and conditions that would have made this nearly impossible.
Regarding legitimacy of the 9/11 Truth movement:
30. At least 220 senior military, intelligence, law enforcement, and government officials (link) have been willing to compromise their official reputation to demand a new investigation.
31. Hundreds of retired or active military in the United States have signed a petition for the truth movement; at least thousands more are keeping silent.
32. The expertise of nearly 2,000 qualified architects and engineers (link) have led them to express serious doubts about the official narrative surrounding WTC collapses; they are now demanding a new investigation after reviewing the compelling evidence for controlled-demolition.
33. Professional pilots with a combined flight experience of more than 200,000 hours, as well as thousands of medical professionals, scientists, firefighters, lawyers, political leaders, scholars, and family members of victims are among those demanding another investigation.
34. Approximately 30% of Americans, overall, have expressed doubts of the official Arab-terrorist conspiracy theory after being introduced to evidence presented by advocates of the 9/11 Truth movement.
35. Support for 9/11 Truth has been increasing steadily over the years which suggests that propagated media themes and confirmation bias are being gradually overcome by grassroots campaigns for an honest approach.
36. Trends in the recent rise of genuine skepticism and secular thought throughout Western society are similar to 9/11 Truth in that both are oppressed by authoritarian entities and social dogma.
Regarding potential motives, methods, and suspects:
37. Two months prior to 9/11, the WTC complex changed ownership for the first time in 33 years. It was acquired by Jewish Zionist and private property developer Larry Silverstein along with his long-time friend and real estate tycoon, Frank Lowy. Silverstein was a former chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, the largest Zionist organization dedicated to raising money and support for Israel. Lowy is a Jewish Zionist and former member of the Israeli terrorist organization “Haganah”.
38. Silverstein acquired the WTC property from the New York Port Authority. A press release from the Port Authority on 24 July 2001 tells of the privatization shift that ultimately enabled Silverstein’s acquisition of the complex. The chief lobbyist and principal force behind this privatization was Ronald S. Lauder, chairman of the New York State Research Council on Privatization. Lauder is an active member of numerous prominent Zionist organizations and has previously funded a school for the Mossad (Israeli spy agency), developing the Lauder School of Government Diplomacy and Strategy in Herzliya, Israel.
39. The company in charge of security at the WTC, Securacom (later became Stratesec), had George Bush’s brother, Marvin Bush, as a leading director. Bush’s distant cousin and lifetime family affiliate, Wirt Walker III, was its CEO. Securacom also provided security for Dulles International Airport and United Airlines. During the “World Trade Center Project”, Securacom spent several years prior to 9/11 having unrestricted access to highly-sensitive areas of the building. Another major security provider was Kroll Associates, led by co-owners Jules Kroll and Jeremy Kroll, and managing director Jerome Hauer — all of these men are Jewish and staunch Zionists.
40. Chairman of the NY Port Authority, Lewis Eisenberg, an avid Zionist and former leading member of the United Jewish Appeal, oversaw the negotiations that won Silverstein and Lowy the 99-year lease despite being outbid by a competitor, Vornado Realty Trust. According to a New York Times article from March 2001, entitled “World Trade Center Deal Remains in Doubt”, Eisenberg had “imposed a news blackout” surrounding these negotiations.
41. The WTC buildings Silverstein had purchased required a combined total of at least a billion dollars in maintenance ranging from asbestos to electric problems that Silverstein ‘lucked out’ of when they collapsed.
42. Silverstein was recorded as having said, when referring to WTC7, “…they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘we’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull, and we watched the building collapse”. The fire department commander with whom Silverstein claims he spoke, Chief Daniel Nigro, confirmed that he hadn’t spoken to Silverstein on 9/11, nor has any other member of FDNY corroborated Mr. Silverstein’s story that “pull” did not imply an order to demolish the building.
43. The insurance policy for the WTC complex was initially raised to 3.6 billion dollars just two months prior to the attacks but Silverstein advocated an obscure clause which enabled him to claim twice — once for each attack — totaling 7.2 billion dollars (there has been a final settlement for approximately 4.55 billion).
44. According to a Sep 9, 2002 article entitled “Up In Smoke” from the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Larry Silverstein were such great friends, even for years prior to the attacks, that “every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call”.
45. Larry Silverstein and his children were both supposed to work in the North tower that day but, luckily, Larry had a dermatologist appointment that he couldn’t miss and both of his children were “running late for work”.
46. High-rise buildings not belonging to Silverstein Properties on 9/11, despite being much closer to the Twin Towers, did not manage to collapse.
47. Ordained Rabbi, Zionist and citizen of Israel, Dov Zakheim was appointed as comptroller and chief financial officer for the Pentagon during the Bush administration, from May 2001 to March 2004. Zakheim had been one of Bush’s closest advisers while he was Governor of Texas, then became his senior foreign policy adviser during the 2000 presidential campaign.
48. Rabbi Zakheim had earlier held the position of Chief Executive Officer at Systems Planning Corporation (SPC). One of the products offered by SPC is a “Flight Termination System” for remote control and flight termination of airborne test vehicles.
49. A subsidiary of Zakheim’s SPC firm, known as Tridata Corporation, oversaw the investigation of the first World Trade Center terrorist attack in 1993, which would have provided vital first-hand knowledge of the security systems and structural blueprints of the World Trade Center.
50. Zakheim holds dual Israeli-American citizenship, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a founding member of the neoconservative movement, and co-authored a publication released by Project for a New American Century (PNAC) a year prior to 9/11 which called for “some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor” to foster American support for war in the Middle East.
51a. One of the airline security companies responsible for the shocking security lapses on 9/11 is a wholly-owned subsidiary of an Israeli company, International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), headed by men with clear ties to Israel’s military intelligence agency, Mossad. The owners of ICTS Huntleigh USA, Menachem Atzmon and Ezra Harel, are both Israeli Jews. Atzmon has very close and controversial ties to former Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert. Another company responsible for passenger screening for three of the four planes (UA175, UA93, AA77) was Argenbright Security. Regarding former Passenger Screening Operations Manager, Dan Boelsche, “90 percent of his [Argenbright] employees at Dulles airport were not even born in the United States; some were foreign nationals with work visas who had come to this country less than a year ago from places like Russia, Africa and the Middle East [Israel?]“. Also, in 2000, “federal prosecutors indicted Argenbright Security for supplying applicants at Philadelphia International Airport with phony high school diplomas, falsifying test scores, and lying about background checks that were never conducted” (CBS News, 2009 Feb 11). According to FBI interviews with Katherine Goudreau, a Director Project Manager with FMC Airport Systems, Argenbright Security, Inc., maintained that “a high number of the employees with security responsibilities appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent”.
51b. The only plane without screening by either Israeli-owned ICTS or Argenbright Security was Flight AA11. Flight AA11 [plane that hit the North Tower] was visually confirmed by eyewitnesses and was unlikely to have been a substitution, while the alleged Flight UA175 [South Tower], according to numerous eyewitnesses and video evidence, appears to have been a military KC-767 with a flight-control device attached (link), and both Flights AA77 [Pentagon] and UA93 [Pennsylvania] are said to have dissolved on impact. Indeed, the only plane to have been sighted and visually confirmed by anyone on 9/11, Flight AA11, had the only Israeli who died on 9/11 on-board: Daniel Lewin — a potential hijacker and Zionist martyr, and former Israeli military captain for Unit 269 of “Sayeret Matkal”, a top-secret counter-terrorism unit specializing in operations outside of Israel.
52. A four-part investigative series by Fox News reporter Carl Cameron was aired in December 2001, which outlined how the Israeli-controlled company Amdocs had installed a communications system for the White House during the mid-1990s. The evidence presented in this series demonstrated, clearly, that Amdocs was spying on the White House (link).
53. An Israeli spy ring of more than 120 agents was discovered between March 2001 and September 11, 2001. Media coverage on the matter became stifled rapidly following the attacks, although this was almost certainly the largest spy ring ever discovered within the United States.
54. As the towers came down on 9/11, five Israelis were witnessed dancing near the scene. Police arrested them and found that their van tested positive for explosives, contained $4,700 cash as well as photographs of them smiling in front of the wreckage, maps with places highlighted, and other suspicious contraband. US authorities were later reported by Fox News to have detained 60 such Israeli “movers” in various locations.
55. Several leading Jewish institutions aggressively backlashed against Fox News and other media outlets that reported suspicions of Israeli involvement in the 9/11 attacks, and petitioned high-level officials at the White House to close down investigations of Israeli spies.
56. The motto of Israel’s foreign intelligence service was, until recently, “by way of deception thou shalt wage war”. This is confirmed by former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky.
Regarding the 9/11 connection to Zionism and the Iraq war:
57. As Adbusters editor Kalle Lasn has pointed out, 26 of the 50 most influential neoconservatives who induced America to wage war in Iraq are Jewish (52%). In appraising how the US was deceived to wage this war, he noted: “The point is simply that the neocons seem to have a special affinity for Israel that influences their political thinking and consequently American foreign policy in the Middle East.” Lasn was promptly attacked as “anti-Semitic” when he titled his article, “Why Won’t Anyone Say They’re Jewish?”.
58. A leading source of fabricated ‘evidence’ for Iraqi WMDs was Ahmed Chalabi, a long-time friend of the “godfather of neoconservatism” and adamant Zionist, Albert Wohlstetter, who later introduced Chalabi to Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle. Perle and Wolfowitz became two of the foremost advocates of the Iraq War, citing Chalabi’s falsified WMD ‘evidence’ as justification for an invasion. Perle, Wohlstetter, and Wolfowitz are all secular Jews and prominent Zionists.
59. In 1982, a Zionist publication entitled “A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s” made the following statement: “Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel’s targets… Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel.”
60. In 1996, a report was presented by Zionist and Iraq war advocate Richard Perle for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu entitled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”. It recommended “removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq – an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right”.
61. In November 1997, the Zionist-founded publication Weekly Standard ran an article entitled “Saddam Must Go” that stated: “We know it seems unthinkable to propose another ground attack to take Baghdad. But it’s time to start thinking the unthinkable”.
62. In 1998, the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), an influential neoconservative group consisting of members such as Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and other prominent Zionists, published a letter to President Clinton urging war against Iraq and the removal of Saddam Hussein on the pretext that he was a “hazard” to “a significant portion of the world’s supply of oil.”. PNAC co-founders William Kristol and Robert Kagan, both adamant Zionists of Jewish descent, also co-authored the 1997 Weekly Standard article “Saddam Must Go”, above.
63. In 1999, David Wurmser, another Zionist member of PNAC who is also of a Jewish background, published his book “Tyranny’s Ally: America’s Failure to Defeat Saddam Hussein” which argued that America was failing to contain Iraq and that the US Military should be used in order to redraw the map of the Middle East. Wurmser would go on to serve as Mideast advisor to VP Dick Cheney from 2003-2007.
64. On September 15, 2001 at Camp David, four days after 9/11, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz suggested a US attack on Iraq rather than Afghanistan because it was “doable.” In the lead-up to the war, he assured Americans that it was “wildly off the mark” to think hundreds of thousands of troops would be needed to pacify a postwar Iraq; that the Iraqis “are going to welcome us as liberators”; and that “it is just wrong” to assume that the United States would have to fund the Iraq war.
65. In the year following 9/11, numerous statements and press releases aimed at distorting the public’s view of Iraq were made by prominent Zionist-Jewish figures including Senator Joe Lieberman, Defense Policy Board member Kenneth Adelman, columnist William Safire, Eliot Cohen, David Frum, Norman Podhoretz, and Charles Krauthammer, among many others. Their statements appeared nationwide in well-known publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and The New York Times.
66. In a September 20, 2002 Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled “The Case for Toppling Saddam,” current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Saddam Hussein could be hiding nuclear material “in centrifuges the size of washing machines” throughout the country.
67. A Zionist of a predominantly Jewish background, Philip Zelikow, made the following candid admission to a foreign policy conference on September 10, 2002: “Why would Iraq attack America or use nuclear weapons against us? I’ll tell you what I think the real threat (is) and actually has been since 1990 — it’s the threat against Israel.”. Despite this revealing admission, Zelikow, as a member of President Bush’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, authored the National Security Strategy of September 2002 that provided the justification for a preemptive war against Iraq.
68. Other prominent Zionists playing key roles in the progression toward war in Iraq include, but are not limited to, Vice President Cheney’s chief of staff Lewis Libby, National Security Council member Elliot Abrams, and Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith.
Regarding exposure to propaganda:
69. According to a July 2006 World Public Opinion Poll, 50% of Americans believed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the US invaded.
70. A May 2012 poll conducted by YouGov has shown that these widely-propagated, false notions continue resonate in the minds of the public for more than a decade after they were originally expressed. It found that 63% of Republicans, 27% of independents, and 15% of Democrats still believe Iraq had WMDs when the US invaded.
71. Public misconceptions about WMDs and other false assumptions show that most Americans are not examining their evidence critically but, rather, are acquiring their opinions from mainstream media outlets.
72. A set of comparitive analyses for 2004, conducted by the organization “If Americans Knew”, led by freelance journalist Alison Weir and supported by various authoritative figures in government; reviews media coverage from major media outlets including Associated Press, The New York Times, ABC, CBS, and NBC. These studies have demonstrated, quite clearly, the extreme bias in media coverage of issues pertaining to Israel. Despite the fact that since 1987, there have been more than five times as many Palestinian deaths as Israelis (7,978 vs. 1,503) and ten times as many Palestinian children killed as Israeli children (1,503 vs. 142), these media outlets in 2004, on average, reported Israeli vs. Palestinian deaths [Israeli : Palestinian] at a ratio of [3.3 : 1] for all ages and [8.2 : 1] for children.
73. A 2006 Zogby poll has shown that, nearly five years after the attacks on 9/11, only 57% of Americans were aware that a third skyscraper (WTC7) had collapsed.
74. In 1999, in an article featured in the Los Angeles Jewish Times, entitled “Yes, Virginia, Jews Do Control the Media”, the following revelation is made: “Four of the largest five entertainment giants are now run or owned by Jews. Murdoch’s News Corp (at number four) is the only gentile holdout — however Rupert is as pro-Israel as any Jew, probably more so.”
75. In July 2012, from The Times of Israel, Jewish journalist Elad Nehorai reveals: “Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media. We’ve got so many dudes up in the executive offices in all the big movie production companies it’s almost obscene. […] Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews?”
76. Jews represent only 1.8% of the US population and 0.5% globally. Zionist Jews comprise only a fraction of these figures. This suggests that, by any reasonable measure, Western institutions are vastly, disproportionately dominated by ethnocentric Zionists.
77. Comcast/NBCUniversal is currently the largest media conglomerate in the world, led by Jewish/Zionist CEO and president Brian L. Roberts. The corporation’s executive vice president, David L. Cohen, is another unwaveringly Zionist Jew and former vice chair of the Jewish Federations in Philadelphia.
78. The Walt Disney Company is the second-largest media conglomerate in the world and is led by Jewish Zionist Robert Iger. His predecessor was Michael Eisner, another well-known Zionist Jew.
79. Google, Inc. is currently the third-largest media conglomerate and is led by Jewish Zionists including but not limited to Larry Page, CEO, and Eric Schmidt, executive chairman and former CEO.
80. Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, which includes more than 800 media companies in 50 different countries, is the fourth-largest media conglomerate on the globe. Murdoch is a renowned Zionist and notorious for imposing his views within subordinate media networks. According to the Los Angeles Jewish Times, “Rupert is as pro-Israel as any Jew, probably more so”. Murdoch is considered “legally Jewish” according to Jewish law as his mother, Elisabeth Joy nee Greene was born of a (wealthy) Jewish family.
81. Viacom is the fifth-largest global media conglomerate and is run by executive chairman and former CEO Sumner Redstone, and by president and CEO Philippe Dauman. Both are Zionists and both are Jewish.
82. Time Warner is the sixth-largest media conglomerate in the world and is led by adamant Zionist Jeffrey Bewkes, who was given a Human Relations Award in 2001 from the American Jewish Committee. Bewkes’ most substantial and recent individual political campaign contributions have gone to Senator Chris Dodd and Rahm Emanuel. Dodd boasts that he has “supported substantial foreign aid for Israel” since he was first elected to the Senate in 1980. Rahm Emanuel is a former member of the Israeli military and son of an Irgun terrorist, Benjamin Emanuel.
83. Most other Western institutions including but not limited to education, law, finance, government, and other corporate entities also exhibit similar disproportionate Zionist and Jewish dominance (link).
Regarding the moral justification to conspire among ethnocentric Zionists:
84. Theistic religion has consistently allowed people to justify their immoral acts with references to perceived notions of ‘divinity’. In the case of Zionism, we have an extremist sect of Judaism combined with tightly-woven networks of political and financial power. With inherently shared motives and overwhelming means, conspiracy becomes inevitable.
85. According to Israeli professor Ehud Sprinzak: “In a thirty page study that examined all Halakhic [Jewish religious law] authorities on the subject, [Israeli rabbi David] Ben-Haim proves that according to the vast majority, the Torah, when speaking about Adam (a human being), never includes Gentiles [non-Jews] in this category. He points out that ten recognized Halakhic authorities repeatedly proposed that Gentiles are more beast than human and that they should be treated accordingly; only two authorities recognize non-Jews as full human beings created in the image of God.”
86. From renowned historian Norman Cantor: “The Talmudic [based on a certain Jewish scripture] mind is hostile to ethnic equality and to universalism. It is very anxious to enforce an ideal of communal purity. All possible contacts with Gentiles are to be avoided.”
87. ‘Baba Kamma 37b’ of the Jewish Talmud states: The gentiles are outside the protection of law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”
88. ‘Yebamoth 98a’ states that all gentile [non-Jewish] children are animals.
89. ‘Baba Kamma 113a.’: Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.
90. ‘Sanhedrin 57a’ states: When a Jew murders a gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.
91. ‘Moed Kattan 17a’: If a Jew is tempted to do evil he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there.
92. Beyond those addressed above, there are dozens of explicit references in Talmudic scripture that clarify an interpretation of “gentiles” or “goyim” as being second-class human beings compared to any Jew, and that gentiles may be used, however necessary, to empower Jews or fulfill a given prophecy.
93. Numerous authoritative Zionist figures have advocated in favor of killing or enslaving non-Jews. According to an interview with Rabbi Manis Friedman in Moment Magazine’s June 2009 “Ask the Rabbis” feature: “The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women, and children”.
94. According to the Jewish Press, June 9, 1989, p. 56b, Israelis annually take part in a national pilgrimage to honor the grave of Simon ben Yohai, a rabbi who advocated the extermination of non-Jews. Rabbi ben Yohai has said: “Tob shebe goyyim harog” which translates to “even the best of the gentiles should all be killed”.
95. Rabbi Yaacov Perrin said, according to NY Daily News, Feb 28, 1994, “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail”.
96. Moses Maimonides is considered the greatest codifier and philosopher in Jewish history. He has this to say about non-Jews: “Accordingly, if we see an idolater (gentile) being swept away or drowning in the river, we should not help him. If we see that his life is in danger, we should not save him.”
97. Jewish author Douglas Rushkoff outlines the threat of organized Judaism and summarizes the world-view many Jewish extremists and Zionists possess: “The thing that makes Judaism dangerous to everybody — to every race, to every nation, to every idea — is that we smash things that aren’t true. We don’t believe in the boundaries of nation-state, we don’t believe in the ideas of these individual gods that protect individual groups of people. […] In a sense, our detractors have us right in that we are a corrosive force. We’re breaking down the false gods of all nations and all people because they’re not real. And that’s very upsetting to people.”
Regarding the assumption that any criticism of this type is “antisemitic”:
98. When asked about why people are called “antisemitic” in the United States for criticizing Israel, former Israeli minister Shulamit Aloni explains: “Well, it’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country people are criticizing Israel, then they are ‘antisemitic’. And the [Jewish] organization is strong, and has a lot of money, and the ties between Israel and the American Jewish establishment are very strong. […] Their attitude is ‘is Israel, my country right or wrong’, identification. They are not ready to hear criticism and it’s very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli government as ‘antisemitic’ and to bring up the Holocaust and the suffering of the Jewish people, and that is to justify everything we do to the Palestinians.”
Regarding the notion that everything is fine in America and 9/11 ‘truthers’ are crazy:
99. In a 2008 poll by the New York Times, 81% of Americans agreed that the U.S. is on the wrong track, up from 35% in early 2002. This figure is likely much higher, today.
100. According to Dr. Robert Hopper, a clinical psychologist: “9/11 truth challenges the beliefs that our country protects us and keeps us safe, and that America is the ‘good guy’. When your beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to that, our psychological defenses kick in and they protect us from these emotions. Denial, which is probably the most primitive psychological defense, is the one most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged.”
