Dear President Obama,
In your Cairo speech of June 4th, 2009, you greeted the Muslim world with "as-salaaamu alikum," meaning "peace be with you." In that speech, you said:
I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
Mr. President, if you genuinely seek a new beginning, you need to revisit the moment when things went massively, wildly wrong: The morning of September 11th, 2001. In your Cairo speech you had this to say about 9/11:
I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: al-Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al-Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. . . . These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.
Mr President: The vast majority of the world's Muslims, and more than 100 million Americans, take issue with your alleged "facts." Polls show that upwards of 75% of Muslims globally, 60% of American Muslims, and 36% of all Americans either believe or suspect that 9/11 was an inside job designed to trigger the wars that followed. A growing scholarly literature shows that the 9/11 doubters are right, and that 9/11 was a false-flag operation whose authors framed innocent Muslims, including Bin Laden, as patsies. (Incidentally, Bin Laden has NOT claimed credit for 9/11. On the contrary: Before his death in December 2001, he denied and deplored the 9/11 attacks, calling them un-Islamic, and asserting that they were carried out by "American Jews" as documented in my book Questioning the War on Terror.)
If you want to be re-elected and earn an honoured place in history, Mr. President, you need to end the phony "war on terror" and the 9/11 big lie on which it is based. To do this, you must appoint a 9/11 Truth Commission staffed by such independent 9/11 skeptics as Drs. David Ray Griffin, Peter Dale Scott, Steven Jones, and Richard Gage...along with others, such as Sen. Max Cleland -- the one honorable original member of the 9/11 Commission -- who can be trusted to act with integrity.
When the findings of the Truth Commission exonerate Muslims and implicate the enemies of Muslims, as those findings undoubtedly will, you will be faced with a truly historic dilemma: How to offer repentance and reparation for the U.S. government's crimes against Muslims that followed the 9/11 false-flag attacks. The U.S. government is guilty of genocide against the Muslims of Iraq, Palestine, and (arguably) Afghanistan; it has launched unconstitutional wars of aggression against these nations and murdered more than one million Muslims, all based on the 9/11 big lie. How can such monstrous crimes be atoned for?
The best means of repentance and reparation, in my view, would be for the U.S. government to fund and build a new mosque at Ground Zero covering the entire World Trade Center site, with twin minarets looming above in memory of the Twin Towers' destruction by genocidal Islamophobes. The minarets should be more than 700 feet in height, which would make the new structure the world's tallest mosque. This mosque should house a 9/11 Truth Museum documenting the evidence that 9/11 was carried out by U.S. and Israeli insiders, not Muslims. It could include such artifacts as the laughably bogus "last will and testament of Mohammed Atta," pieces of airplane wreckage from earlier crashes that were planted at the alleged 9/11 crash sites, WTC structural steel samples showing melting and evaporation caused by explosives, videos and other objects seized from the Israeli Mossad team that filmed and celebrated their colleagues' destruction of the World Trade Center, unflattering wax figures of such 9/11 villains as Dick Cheney, Larry Silverstein, and Benjamin Netanyahu, and samples of nanothermite-laden World Trade Center dust.
Even in the radically different political atmosphere of a post-9/11-truth world, some will undoubtedly argue that the U.S. government should not build a mosque due to the Constitutional separation of church and state. But in fact, the proposed project would not violate the Constitutional prohibition on favoritism to any particular religion, because the U.S. government and the bankers who own it have already spent trillions attacking Islam. Giving back a few billion in the form of a great mosque at Ground Zero would be a minimal symbolic gesture towards setting things right, and would not in itself overcome the preponderance of US government actions unconstitutionally discriminating against Islam. Additionally, it would follow the precedent set by many nations including the U.S., all but one of which were not directly implicated in the Holocaust, which have paid trillions in direct or indirect reparations to the Jewish state of Israel and other Jewish agencies.
Thank you in advance for supporting this worthy project, and I look forward to hearing from you.
