High School Student Interviews Me on the WTC-7 Mosque

A high school student recently interviewed me on the WTC-7 Mosque:

Here are my questions:
1. What is the current situation of the mosque? Is it still under construction?

I don't know whether any construction work is going on right now, but as I understand it the space has been used for Friday prayers for several years at least. So it has been a mosque for many years, since long before the controversy arose. According to recent news reports, they are planning construction work, and applying for government funds to help pay for it. So in that sense it is definitely "under construction."

2. Why isn't anyone speaking up about the issues with the name "cordoba" and its history?

That's a good question! Cordoba was the most intellectually and socially advanced city on the planet during much of the time Muslims ruled Spain. It was known as a place where Jews, Christians, and Muslims got along and worked well together. The word "Cordoba" is a reminder that the three big monotheistic faiths can get along - and also that Islam is the most tolerant and inclusive of the three faiths. Perhaps the people who own and run the media - which is dominated by Zionist Jews who support the Jewish nationalist project in Occupied Palestine and all the ethnic cleansing it entails - do not want to remind people about Cordoba. (Here is a thoughtful essay, by a Jewish journalist, about Jewish domination of the media and its consequences: http://www.mondoweiss.net/2008/02/do-jews-dominat.html )
3. How are you handling all the 9/11 victims and their protests?

Only a small minority of 9/11 family members are protesting, but their voices are being wildly over-amplified by the media. In fact, according to Bob McIIivaine, who lost his son Bobby in the Towers, more than half of the family members know that 9/11 was an inside job - i.e. a false-flag event designed to libel Muslims and legitimize their mass murder in wars of aggression. Here is a Fox News segment about a commercial in which pro-9/11-truth family members express themselves about Building 7, the "smoking gun" of the 9/11 inside job: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFPobKeSzKQ

I think the best way to handle the protestors is to try to help educate them about what really happened on 9/11. Once they learn that it wasn't Muslims that did it - in fact, it was the enemies of Muslims - they will support an even bigger mosque at Ground Zero.
4. Do you think that after the mosque is built, the stereotype of islam will change?

I think it will be the gradual acceptance of 9/11 truth, rather than the building of the mosque, that will change the stereotype of Islam.

5. What does the cordoba house include besides the mosque?

It has already been functioning as a mosque for many years. The plans are to expand it to include a community center with exercise facilities, day care, a meeting space, and so on - all of which would serve the entire Lower Manhattan community, not just Muslims.
6. Have there been any attempts in the past to build a mosque in order to clear misunderstandings about muslims?

Here in Madison, Wisconsin, a nonprofit I work with called the Madison Muslim Dawa Circle has established a mosque as part of our dawa (Islamic outreach) work. Though our mosque is currently a "storefront mosque" in a rental space, we are working on building a permanent mosque. Our organization's primary purpose is to help educate our community - including locally, nationwide, and worldwide in that order - about the realities as opposed to the stereotypes about Islam. We began our project almost ten years ago - slightly before the NYC mosque project. I'm sure there have been other efforts like ours, though I don't know of any offhand.

I think that all mosques in non-Muslim-majority countries should include outreach (dawa) centers as well as prayer space. Ideally, every mosque in America would also be a community center! Unfortunately we have a long way to go before we reach this goal. Many American Muslims have caught the fear contagion engineered by the 9/11 inside job, and have reacted by becoming even more insular than they were before. Muslims need to get active and inform their neighbors about Islam and Islam-related issues - and above all, that 9/11 was an inside job. There is a million-Muslim-march being planned right now to do that.
Thank you for your time and cooperation. Signed, TK

You are most welcome! Thank you for your questions, and good luck with your research project. If I can be of any further assistance, feel free to stay in contact.

Dear Barack, thank you for thanking me for everything...and by the way, thanks for nothing

It's Thanksgiving, the time for giving thanks. But I never expected to get an email from Barack Obama thanking me...for everything.

    From:     info@barackobama.com
    Subject:     Thankful
    Date:     November 25, 2010 12:45:20 PM CST
    To:     kbarrett[AT]merr[DOT]com
    Reply-To: info@barackobama.com


Kevin --

When Michelle and I sit down with our family to give thanks today, I want you to know that we'll be especially grateful for folks like you.

Everything we have been able to accomplish in the last two years was possible because you have been willing to work for it and organize for it.

And every time we face a setback, or when progress doesn't happen as quickly as we would like, we know that you'll be right there with us, ready to fight another day.

So I want to thank you -- for everything.

I also hope you'll join me in taking a moment to remember that the freedoms and security we enjoy as Americans are protected by the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces. These patriots are willing to lay down their lives in our defense, and each of us owes them and their families a debt of gratitude.

Have a wonderful day, and God bless.

Barack





My reply:


Dear Barack,

I appreciate your gratitude for my efforts to expose the 9/11 inside job, end Zionism and the Zionist stranglehold on America, end the Fed, cut the military budget by 90%, bring all our troops home and close all of our 900+ foreign bases, shut down DHS and smash the naked body scanners, restore our Constitution, begin treason and war crimes trials for all federal officials who have not actively worked for 9/11 truth and against the 9/11 wars of aggression, and hang every last one of the thousands of them (including you) who have been actively complicit in those treasonous and/or criminal activities...except for cases in which sincere repentance has been clearly shown well in advance of crunch time.

Your letter thanking me for my work suggests that you, like Geraldo Rivera and perhaps even Glenn Beck, may be on the road to sincere repentance for past sins. Please demonstrate your good faith and stop mass-murdering people in Afghanistan and Iraq. Then I might rethink my efforts - for which you have thanked me so effusively - to have you and the other traitors and war criminals charged, tried, convicted, and hanged by the neck until dead.

In other words, thanks for nothing.

So far.

Until then, I remain

Yours truly

Dr. Kevin Barrett

TSA Tips for Travelers: Or, How to Stop Worrying and Love Letting Us Touch Your Junk

[Note: TruthJihad blog always attempts to prevent a fair and balanced view of issues related to the War on Terror. In order to do so, we occasionally invite contributions from those whose views we would ordinarily oppose. Today, due to widespread public rage against TSA groping and naked body scanners, we felt obliged to invite the TSA to respond.]

TSA Tips for Travelers: Or, How to Stop Worrying and Love Letting Us Touch Your Junk

Guest blog post by Vora Rephilia, Assistant Pubic Relations Officer, Transportation Security Administration

Greetings, travelers! We at the Transportation Security Administration are dedicated to making your journey as pleasant as possible. That is why we offer you the choice of either allowing us to look at you naked, or allowing us to fondle your genitals.

We know that many of you have been raised to feel ashamed of exposing your naked bodies in public. For people who suffer from this kind of inhibition, we offer the option of merely having your genitals groped.

Some people are worried about how their kids will react to our screening procedures.


It is your responsibility to inform your children that cavity searches are an integral part of informed citizenship in a free society. If they resist, our agents are equipped with a broad spectrum of animal tranquilizers to help them enjoy this important educational experience.

We also understand that there are some health concerns about the massive radiation exposures created by our naked body scanners. Let us just put that whole issue to rest by saying that thus far, there has not been even ONE single documented case of anyone visibly mutating while passing through one of our scanners. If there had been, trust us, we would have noticed.

We know that despite all of our efforts to lubricate our invasive security procedures, we have been getting some bad press lately. Here are some recent headlines:

Rape Survivor Devastated by TSA Enhanced Pat Down

TSA official pats down distraught 3-year-old girl

Coffee, Tea, or Should We Feel Your Pregnant Wife’s Breasts Before Throwing You in a Cell at the Airport and Then Lying About Why We Put You There?

All of these passengers could have had much more pleasant experiences with TSA if they had been better-informed about proper procedures at TSA checkpoints.

Below is a passenger-training video produced by the Department of Homeland Security. In the video, two glamorous Hollywood actors demonstrate the patriotic way to behave at a TSA checkpoint.

A call for We Are Change and all other courageous activists to SUPPORT OPT-OUT DAY...

...by going to your nearest airport on Opt-Out Day, Wednesday November 24th, and engaging in civil information activism...even if you aren't traveling! (Or ESPECIALLY if you aren't traveling - because you, unlike the poor folks getting scanned and groped, won't have a flight to miss!)

How? Just stand near where people line up to go through the checkpoint, being careful not to physically obstruct anyone, and talk to travelers about Opt-Out Day, naked body scanners, and "enhanced pat-downs" that amount to sexual assaults. Ask people to Opt Out of the naked body scanners, and to insist that the TSA sexual assault take place in full view of other passengers. Be sure to inform them that they are 30 times more likely to be struck by lightning than to be killed by a terrorist, as I explain in my book Questioning the War on Terror.

Keep in mind that the Supreme Court has ruled that airports are not exempt from First Amendment protections.

If you want to provoke a confrontation with authorities and film it for YouTube, that shouldn't be too hard.  Speaking loudly, bullhorning, and/or holding up signs such as "TSA = Total Sexual Assault" would be easy ways to get asked to leave. Insist on your First Amendment Rights (at least up to the point that arrest seems imminent) and film the conversation.

I will personally send $50 by check or paypal (your choice) to the person who makes the best Opt-Out Day We Are Change type activist video. You don't have to belong to We Are Change to enter the contest. Just put your video on Youtube and email a link to kbarrett[at]merr[dot]com.  Entries will be accepted through the end of November 2010.

If anyone else wants to pledge some additional prize money, please let me know and I'll keep track of the amount of prize money here.

New POWER OF TRUTH Radio Network picks up steam!

A brand-new network devoted to promoting the best of alternative radio is on the air! Check out Power of Truth Radio, where you can find my shows streaming twice a day, along with several other shows that together represent much of the best that alternative radio has to offer.

Curious about what the world's 1.5 billion Muslims really think - and why the mainstream media won't tell you? Power of Truth Radio  features the best in Muslim-hosted English language radio with Hesham Tillawi, Imam W.D. Mohammed, Syed Saboor, "Live from Gaza with Yusef al-Helan," "Understanding the Qur'an," and of course yours truly. But it isn't an all-Muslim network - it also features the Marxist truth radio pioneers Ralph Shoenman and Mya Shone, and Christian truth-teller Mark Glenn. (More high-quality shows coming soon!)

Power of Truth Radio will be working hard - with significant resources - to promote and expand the audience for this crucial segment of the alternative media. Please listen, donate, and spread the word!

What You Can't Say on Geraldo

Geraldo: Has he rescinded the digitis impudicus he once flashed at the "nutjobs" who support 9/11 truth?

At first glance, Geraldo's 9/11 show with Bob McIlvaine and Tony Szamboti was mind-boggling. Never before has mainstream network TV put such a favorable spin on 9/11 truth.

Even at second glance it's still pretty mind-boggling. Congratulations to everyone involved - Bob and Tony (who performed brilliantly), the NYCcan and BuildingWhat folks, and behind them the whole truth movement. (I will be welcoming Tony Szamboti to Truth Jihad Radio next Saturday, Nov. 20th, 5 to 7 pm Central, live on AmericanFreedomRadio.com.)

After the celebrations and congratulations are over, it's time to ask: Why are Geraldo and Fox doing this now? After all, the destruction of WTC-7 was an obvious controlled demolition from day one. Now, almost ten years later, Geraldo finally gets it. What's up with that?

Gordon Duff of Veterans Today - who will join me on the radio next Tuesday, November 23rd - writes:

"This week,  Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement,  something exploding around the world...Rivera tried,  during the show,  to “sucker” the parent of a Building 7 murder victim into a 2 minute discussion of 9/11 as an “inside job” knowing quite well he would be able to get a quick attack in.  Rivera was outwitted as the video shows,  cut off at the legs.  Why would Rivera do this?"

Duff thinks that Rivera, an Israeli citizen, and Fox, a de facto Israeli network, are "trying to 'spin' the story,  control it,  make murder a joke."

How could Rivera/Fox have been attempting to spin/control 9/11 truth? Duff speculates that Rivera is disguising the 9/11 false-flag mass murders - a crime whose perpetrators and main motive are fairly well-known - as a "mystery."

Following Duff, I think Rivera/Fox is trying to impose certain limits of permissible discourse on 9/11 activists: Ask questions, but don't make strong statements about who did it and why. Sign a petition if you're an engineer or an architect, otherwise keep your mouth shut because what do you know. Whatever you do, don't demonstrate noisily in the streets like those "nut jobs" in the clip he showed. Anybody who makes too much noise, or who takes too strong action, will be attacked as a "nut job" by Fox. But if you follow all of Fox's rules, you may get a few minutes of approval from Fox/Rivera! Then you can sit back and feel good about yourself being so calm and professional and responsible! What a wonderful feeling, after all these years of being attacked and vilified by Fox and the sheeple who watch it! It will feel so good that if any other 9/11 activists dare to make 9/11 truth look bad by being loud, rebellious, unruly, overly confident or assertive about who did it and why, or (G-d forbid) "anti-Semitic" (by bringing up the case against Israel and Zionists)...well, we'll just have to silence them and censor them and shout them down and ban them from websites and start flame wars and lynch mobs to keep them in line! (Now THAT is beneficial cognitive diversity.)

The polite approach to 9/11 truth has its place. But carried too far, it serves the interests of the perpetrators. The reason is that "9/11" is a meme, and the default status for that meme is "radical Arab Muslim attack on America."

The thing about memes is that the more you mention a given meme - even if you're questioning or opposing it - the more you unwittingly reinforce it. So every 9/11 activist who helps keep the 9/11 meme alive by talking and writing and posting and demonstrating about 9/11 may be (among other things) unwittingly helping reinforce the "Muslims did it" meme in service to the perpetrators. This is especially true when the emphasis is on victims and family members, first responders, and anything else that taps into the prefabricated patriotic myth constructed for the event ahead of time and wheeled out by the psy ops pros on the morning of the 11th. Note that the Let It Happen On Purpose (LIHOP) paradigm, which imagines top US officials looking the other way while evil Arab Muslim terrorists hijacked and crashed planes, tends to reinforce the "Muslims did it" meme far more than it undermines it.  Keeping all of this in mind, it is easy to see why certain people and/or anonymous cyber-entities at 911blogger have been suspected of "working for the other side."

So Rivero/Fox (and presumably the psy-ops pros behind them) don't really mind if we politely question 9/11, harp on its being a mystery, critique the official reports, invoke family members and first responders, and so on. What they don't want us to do is assertively create and spread alternative memes that could crowd out the original "Arab-Muslim terrorist attack" meme from the public mind. Such memes include but are not limited to: False-flag attack, inside job, controlled demolition, Zionist operation, Mossad operation, remote-control planes, accused hijackers are innocent, war on Islam for Israel, Zionist coup d'etat, big lie, Reichstag fire, Zionist attack on America, trigger for criminal wars of aggression, and so on.

Okay, you say, we get your point about memes - but why all this harping on Israel and Zionists? 

First, because it's true. Nobody else had such an overwhelming, existential motive to pull off something as huge and as risky as 9/11. As Chomsky correctly said, the Bush Administration would have been crazy to do it. But the Israelis, who inhabit an illegitimate state doomed by history, had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The "who gains" question alone argues Israel did 9/11. And this interpretation is supported by extensive evidence - evidence that the overly-polite wing of the truth movement, the thought police who guard and monitor it, and the Israeli Fox hosts who encourage it, don't want us to talk about.

At the end of the day, the (true) "Zionists did it" meme can and will eventually crowd out the (false) "Muslims did it" meme. Simply asking questions and invoking mysteries won't.

Tony Szamboti does Truth Jihad Radio, Geraldo in the same night!

Tony Szamboti had a good excuse for leaving Truth Jihad Radio thirty minutes ahead of schedule last night: He was booked, along with pro-truth family member Bob McIlvaine, on Geraldo's Fox News show! No problem - I brought on Muad'Dib's colleague Rob from Ireland to talk about the recent travesty of justice at the Irish Supreme Court.  In Case you haven't heard, Muad'Dib is incarcerated and awaiting extradition for the "crime" of mailing his 7/7 truth DVD 7/7 Ripple Effect.

My interview last night with Tony Szamboti, featuring Tony's critique of Denis Rancourt's anti-Twin-Towers-demolition case, will soon be archived here. Following Tony, you can listen to Rob discussing Muad'Dib, then former NASA Director Dwain Deets addressing 9/11 truth issues. This show was dedicated to my good friend and 9/11 truth colleague, the late Mark Wolfert, who will be very greatly missed.

Tony Szamboti will return to Truth Jihad Radio next week to offer a more detailed refutation of Rancourt's arguments. Meanwhile, here is Geraldo's amazing interview with Tony Szamboti and Bob McIlvaine.

MUAD'DIB EXTRADITION APPROVED BY IRELAND'S HIGHEST COURT


You can listen to my 2009 interview with Muad'Dib here, and follow his case here.  Also, you can listen to today's conversation between Jim Fetzer and Muad'Dib's friend Rob here.  -KB


MUAD'DIB ARRESTED AND HELD FOR DEPORTATION

Guest blog by Jim Fetzer

In a stunning development, Ireland's highest court ruled in favor of the extradition of Muad'Dib, who produced "7/7 Ripple Effect", to England to stand trial for attempting to corrupt the judicial system.  The charge is in fact quite absurd, since Muad'Dib simply sent copies of his DVD to the court in England in an attempt to preclude the miscarriage of justice that would be involved in sentencing friends of the alleged "bombers" for their complicity in the matter, which is completely unjustified, once one becomes aware of the apparent governmental complicity in staging the 7/7 attacks.

The court addressed only three of some fifty-four points Muad'Dib had made in his own defense while ignoring the remainder.  According to a friend of Muad'Dib, Rob, who was present at the hearing, they used tortured logic and distorted language to justify their otherwise grossly improper verdict. The judges did not even bother to view "7/7 Ripple Effect", which appears on its face to be completely unreasonable, since it was alleged to be the content of that DVD that is responsible for the extradition request.  For all the judges knew, the DVD could have been a Beatles' concert or completely blank.

Rob called me from Ireland and we recorded two 25-30 minute segments about this travesty, which are linked below.  A web site about the proceeding and relevant records such as Muad'Dib's brief is archived at http://mtrial.org. In addition, I have interviewed Muad'Dib twice--once for two hours and once for another--as well as two experts on these attacks, Nicholas Kollerstrom, author of TERROR ON THE TUBE, and Rory Ridley-Duff of Sheffield University. All of these interviews are available at http://radiofetzer.blogspot.com:

Harrit-Rancourt Debate: My Take, then Graeme MacQueen's

[Listen to my debate with Denis Rancourt (2nd hour).   Listen to chemistry professor Niels Harrit debate Denis Rancourt. And tune in tomorrow, Sat. 11/13/10, to hear engineers Tony Szamboti and Dwain Deets join the discussion.]

This week I finally got to host a real debate - three whole hours' worth - on the physical evidence for the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers.

Ever since I was chased out of academia by a gaggle of know-nothing state legislators, I have, like Diogenes with his lamp, been trying to find someone willing to defend the government's version of what happened to the World Trade Center.  (For details, click here and scroll down to #5.)

So I am grateful to physics professor Denis Rancourt for stepping forward to oppose the controlled demolition hypothesis for the Twin Towers. Until Denis arrived, the only independent scientist who has been willing to publicly make this argument, to the best of my knowledge, is Dr. Frank Greening. (Interestingly, both Rancourt and Greening admit that the government's version of what happened to World Trade Center 7 is nonsense, with Rancourt going so far as to call WTC-7 an obvious controlled demolition.)

Because Denis Rancourt agrees with most of the 9/11 truth movement's contentions, I had hoped that he would debate Niels Harrit in an amicable, collegial way. Instead, he surprised me by using the aggressive ad-hominem tactics associated with Fox News style "debunkers." Taking advantage of non-native-speaker Harrit's slower, more deliberate style of speaking - and the one-second time lag on Harrit's line - Rancourt tried to dominate the debate by interrupting regularly and heaping scorn on his interlocutor.

For me, the most telling moment was when Rancourt attacked Harrit's professional credentials, claiming that a Google Scholar search for Harrit only turned up a couple of hits and demanding that Harrit explain. Harrit, who has plenty of professional credentials, had no idea why Rancourt couldn't find his work through Google Scholar. The problem, it later turned out, was that Rancourt had misspelled Harrit's name.

Rancourt's sloppy, superficial, ad-hominem use of Google Scholar may have reflected his approach to the whole debate. Rather than carefully studying and weighing the case for demolition, evenhandedly attempting to discern its strengths and potential weaknesses, and offering a carefully-thought-out critique, he maintained a gratingly aggressive attitude while alternately lobbing colorful soundbites of questionable relevance, and occasionally retreating into scientific jargon that non-technical listeners wouldn't understand.

Rancourt bases his argument on the large amount of gravitational potential energy in any tall building - energy which is released when the building comes down. So much energy, he claims, could pulverize almost all of the Towers' concrete into rapidly expanding pyroclastic-type clouds, fling gigantic multi-ton steel beams upward and outward at high speed, melt steel, cause the sounds of explosions, make the building disappear symmetrically, with rapid onset, in ten to fifteen seconds...and otherwise create all of the effects commonly cited as evidence for demolition with explosives. (He still hasn't explained how gravity alone managed to scatter tiny shards of human bones all over the roof of the neighboring Deutche Bank building.)

I don't buy Rancourt's "potential energy" argument for one nanosecond.  As Tony Szamboti points out, there is far more (chemical ) potential energy in a chocolate chip cookie than in a stick of dynamite of the same mass. But chocolate chip cookies don't blow things up, because there is no mechanism for the energy to be released with tremendous rapidity in such a way as to cause shock waves. Likewise, any discussion of what caused a building to collapse must focus on the precise mechanisms of energy release, not just the total amount of energy involved, which is in itself irrelevant.

Because a tall building, like a tall mountain (or anything tall with a lot of mass) harbors lots of gravitational potential energy, Rancourt stated that tall buildings are like huge bombs waiting to go off. If this is true, why has no tall building in more than a century of architectural experience ever "gone off" for any reason other than controlled demolition - except, we have been preposterously led to believe, three times on the same day in the same city?!  Tall buildings have become blazing infernos (unlike the Towers on 9/11, which experienced very modest fires); they have been rocked by gale-force winds; they have been battered by earthquakes. But never in history has a tall building come down for any reason except controlled demolition. Based on the history of tall buildings, they are no more likely to naturally suffer complete collapse than are mountains; for neither tall buildings nor mountains have ever done so.

Rancourt compares the destruction of the Twin Towers to the bombing of Hiroshima, claiming that the two events are alike - that Hiroshima is a sort of precedent and model for the Towers' destruction - simply because the Towers' destruction unleashed gravitational energy equivalent to 1% of the energy of the Hiroshima bomb! Like the whole "building = bomb" equation, this is a classic example of a misleading comparison. Rather than illuminating these two (physically) radically different events, the Hiroshima-Twin Towers comparison propagandizes for the "massively destructive attack" mental image embedded in the WTC site's "Ground Zero" label.  Good propaganda, bad science.

Yet another misleading comparison came when Rancourt claimed that the gigantic multi-ton steel beams that accelerated upward and outward from the exploding Towers were sort of like bouncing rubber balls. That is, if a ball can "fall upward" when it bounces, so can heavy pieces of structural steel and aluminum cladding "fall upwards and outwards" in parabolic arcs from collapsing buildings, presumably by bouncing off of the portion of the building that has not yet collapsed. Hey scientists and engineers: Is this argument as self-evidently preposterous as it sounds? Is there any evidence that anything remotely like this has ever happened in the real world? Maybe somebody accidentally built a skyscraper with Disney-style Flubber instead of steel?

Rancourt attacked Harrit's nanothermite paper by claiming that (a) the samples of WTC dust could have been contaminated in various ways so as to produce the findings of shockingly high amounts of unexploded nanothermite chips, and (b) even if the nanothermite chips were really there, they could have been somehow manufactured by the complex interactions of falling rusted steel and aluminum during the collapse of the Twin Towers. Harrit countered that this was about as likely as taking paper, phosphorous, gelatin, etc., throwing them into a burning/collapsing building, and finding that they had miraculously assembled themselves into books of matches littering the rubble.

In my evaluation, Rancourt "won" this debate in the same way that Hannity and O'Reilly "win" most of their "debates" - by being aggressively insulting, talking over their opponents, and offering lots of misleading soundbite images in place of arguments. Harrit, like Bob Bowman under fire from Hannity, kept calm, spoke far fewer words than his opponent, yet emerged with his dignity and the core of his arguments intact. 

Why is this debate important? Rancourt claims that arguments for Twin Towers demolition, like those for "no planes just holograms" and "Directed Energy Weapons," are baseless and make the 9/11 truth movement look bad. I think this is yet another misleading comparison. So far there are SIX peer-reviewed pro-9/11-truth papers published in mainstream scientific journals, and every single one of them has the destruction of the Twin Towers as its primary focus. No comparable scholarly scientific support exists for any other aspect of the case for 9/11 as inside job.

Additionally, the horrific destruction of the Towers was obviously the core image and core operation of the 9/11 psy-op. Without the demolition of the Towers, 9/11 would have been just another forgettable incident on the scale of OKC, Khobar Towers, Marines in Beirut, Pan Am Flight 103, and so on. By blowing the Twin Towers to kingdom come, the neocons got their New Pearl Harbor.

Since the Towers demolition case is so important to the 9/11 truth movement, and so well-supported by scientific evidence, some of my listeners think Rancourt is an agent tasked with fostering "beneficial cognitive diversity" - meaning paralyzing doubt, time-wasting, and infighting - in the 9/11 truth movement. Me, I think he's just a too-smart-by-half smart aleck and free-spirited natural hell-raiser who's playing a very useful devil's advocate role. By throwing everything he's got at Harrit, and missing so badly on most of his throws, Rancourt appears to be strengthening the case for controlled demolition of the Towers. So if he's working undercover for anybody, it would be us.

Graeme MacQueen writes to Denis Rancourt (posted with Professor MacQueen's permission):

Dear Denis:

Thanks for forwarding this piece. These issues have been discussed in detail for years and I think we should avoid repeating what others have said. However, despite my reluctance to get involved in another debate I can’t help replying to a couple of your comments.

(1) “And the Movement needs to stop spinning its wheels with extreme theories such as: directed energy weapons, all the video is fake and there were no planes, and the two towers necessarily came down in controlled explosives-assisted demolitions with or without the help of tonnes of nanothermite.”

Comment: I agree that we need to concentrate on theories that are solid, but I disagree that controlled demolition is in the same category as no-planes, directed energy weapons and so on. The CD hypothesis is based on a good deal of evidence, and such evidence continues to accumulate. Adnan has pointed to the fact that the CD in WTC 7 cannot easily be separated from the issue of the Towers’ collapses. The Towers were certainly brought down in a different way that WTC 7 but the evidence that they were deliberately demolished with the help of explosives is plentiful.


(2) “A standing building is a bomb waiting to be ignited (by an earthquake or anything capable of taking out structural elements). The gravitational potential energy that is released when a tall structure collapses is enormous. The higher and more massive the structure, the greater the energy release.

Indeed, this is the basis of controlled demolition in which gravitational energy not explosives does virtually all the destructive work. The explosives are only used to take out key structural elements and gravity does the rest.”

Comment: Well, I have to disagree with your opening statement. A standing building, if it is built well, is not much like a bomb at all. I don’t think the metaphor helps us. A well designed steel-framed skyscraper will not come down easily, and I’m sure we agree that this is one of the reasons controlled demolition is necessary. Yes, the explosives in a standard CD take out structural elements so that gravity can do most of the work, but taking out the structural elements is not a piece of cake: it is planned carefully, especially when it’s important to have a symmetrical collapse. The task of those who think CD was not used on the Towers is to explain how the key structural elements were taken out given that they were attacked neither by the planes nor the fires. By this I mean that even if the planes and fires were successful in critically weakening the structure--and I have seen no convincing evidence of this in thousands of pages of the NIST reports—they weakened this structure only in the area where damage was observed. In the North Tower this was roughly floors 92-98. There is no evidence they caused major damage outside this region; NIST certainly does not claim this. So, even if we accept that this part of the NT was so badly damaged that it began to catastrophically collapse (NIST has not convinced me that this happened), then we still have to explain how we get from this sort of local collapse to the collapse of the whole building. You’ve tried to give us a scenario in which this might happen, but I don’t find it convincing and I don’t find that it meshes with the evidence we’ve got. For example:

(a) We have a building where the top quite suddenly begins to come down on the rest of the building but where this top section accelerates smoothly right through the period when it’s supposedly destroying the powerful, intact structure beneath it. Not possible. Something else has clearly already destroyed the structural resistance of the lower part of the Tower. No explanation of the collapse will work if it doesn’t explain this smooth acceleration.

(b) We have a scenario where eyewitnesses report explosions before and at the beginning of the collapses. Many eyewitnesses clearly say that the explosions were destroying the building; several compare the process they observed to CD. There are over 150 eyewitnesses to explosions. They are, as far as we can tell, normal people in full possession of their senses. Many (most) were firefighters with extensive experience in burning buildings and in burning high-rises. The explosions typically found in fires do not fit the profile: they could not have played a significant role in destroying these buildings nor would firefighters have in this case said that what they observed seemed to be bombs or secondary devices.

We recently got, through a FOIA request, yet another set of eyewitnesses to these explosions:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8DRVqSSyb8&feature=related

I lay great stress on eyewitnesses because I believe it is a crucial strategy of authoritarian institutions to dismiss and attempt to de-legitimize normal human beings and their physical senses. (“You did not see what you thought you saw. We are the ones who will tell you what you saw.”)

The eyewitness evidence is corroborated by other kinds of evidence: still photos and videos, which show patterns of rapid and forceful ejections down the length of the Towers; and physical evidence. In the last category, quite apart from the nanothermite (I will let Niels deal with that one if he chooses to), there is the evidence of extreme heat. [See "Evidence of Very High Temperatures..." in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, v.19]. This evidence does not depend on people in the 9/11 truth movement—it has been documented by other researchers—and I have seen no convincing innocent explanation of it to date. It suggests pre-planted agents (incendiaries or explosives) used to bring down the buildings. These different forms of evidence converge in the CD hypothesis.

All the best,

Calling the Cops on Dialogue


Martin, a pro-9/11-truth libertarian from Southern California, recently sent me the following story:


Rice University Jewish Studies Professor calls police over youtube 9/11 video

A Houston man who sent a Rice University professor a youtube link via e-mail in October was contacted by police investigators shortly thereafter. The video, entitled 'History They Don't Teach You in School', was e-mailed to Rice University Jewish Studies professor Rabbi Shira Lander, Ph.D, after the man had seen fliers advertising her Jewish studies anti-semitism class.  [full article here ]



Always seeking a "teachable moment" and a good radio show, I emailed the Rabbi:


Dear Rabbi Lander,

I am writing you regarding the recent news story Rice University Jewish Studies Professor calls police over youtube 9/11 video.

I am mentioned in the article as lead editor, alongside noted theologian John Cobb and Jewish Studies professor Sandra Lubarsky, of 9/11 and American Empire v.2: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out.  Co-editor Sandra Lubarsky, in her essay "Terrible Fears, Terrible Desires: A Jewish Response to 9/11" bravely admits to being "fearful of what might happen, were Jewish or Israeli involvement in 9/11 established."

Perhaps it was this kind of fear that led you to call the police over an emailer whose purpose appeared to be informative, not threatening.

I would like to send you a copy of
9/11 and American Empire v.2: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out. After you have read it, and examined some of the evidence that 9/11 was a false-flag operation designed to demonize Muslims, you might consider apologizing to the emailer, and joining me for some interfaith dialogue on one of my radio shows. 

After all, "never again" applies equally to everyone, does it not?

Sincerely,

Kevin



* * *


And "never again" did I hear from the good rabbi. Maybe the moment wasn't as teachable as I thought! Oh well, at least she didn't call the cops on me.

She did, however, apparently contact fellow Jewish Studies professor Sandra Lubarsky, who felt compelled to email me a disclaimer stating that she has seen no evidence of Israeli or Mossad involvement in 9/11 and in fact does not believe that either Israel or the Mossad was involved. I answered:


Dear Sandra,

Always good to hear from you!

In my email to Shira Lander I did not mean to imply that you thought the Mossad was involved in 9/11. My point was that you ably expressed the fear you felt when contemplating that possibility - the same kind of fear that may have led Rabbi Lander to call the police inappropriately.  I admire you for bringing that fear out into the open and facing it publicly, and I meant to suggest that Rabbi Lander consider doing the same thing (by joining me on the radio).

By the way, I know this is a long shot, but would you like to take over as Coordinator of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth (MUJCA)?  Lou Stolzenberg, a Methodist, stepped down almost a year ago. Since we've already had a Muslim (me) and a Christian (Lou) it would be great to have a Jewish coordinator.  You'd have complete control for a one- or two-year term (your choice).   If you can't, could you recommend anyone?

Best,

Kevin




I'm pretty sure that Sandra won't apply for the job of MUJCA coordinator - she's a full-time professor after all.  So if anybody out there knows the right Jewish 9/11 truth-seeker for the job, please contact me. The MUJCA Coordinator is appointed by the MUJCA board, acting on behalf of a nonprofit corporation; he or she edits the website and proposes, organizes, and/or endorses projects and events. Agreement with the (very different) perspectives of previous coordinators, or board members, is not a requirement!

Given that Israel, which defines itself as a Jewish state, is involved in a low-intensity war with virtually the entire Muslim world, it seems to me that interfaith dialogue on 9/11 (which most Muslims see as an American/Zionist false-flag op) is absolutely essential if that war is not to gradually or not-so-gradually heighten in intensity. So please, Jewish friends, let's talk this out!  We need dialogue on this issue, not cop-enforced silence.

Leaked Airline Memo: TSA Declares War on Toner Cartridges

TSA: Exploding toner cartridges have become the preferred weapon of jihadis who hate our freedom

The pen may be mightier than the sword...but is the toner cartridge mightier than the kalashnikov? The Transportation Security Administration apparently thinks so.  An airline employee, who says his job would be endangered if I revealed his name, has leaked the following secret TSA memo:

The TSA recently issued new Security Directives the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is implementing new security measures including a prohibition of the transportation on board domestic or international flights to or from the U.S. of printer or toner cartridges weighing 16 ounces or more. Accordingly, effective Monday, November 8, 2010, passengers are prohibited from transporting these items in either carry-on or checked baggage.

US, Arab World Both Need Revolutions

Virtually the entire Arab world - the historic heartland of Islam - is under US-Zionist occupation...while the US itself is under Zionist-financier occupation.

The people of the US and the Arab world ought to rise up, together, and overthrow the regimes occupying their countries and targeting them for destruction.

Unfortunately, many Arabs, and most Americans, are in denial. I spend most of my time trying to wake up Americans; but as a Ph.D. Arabist-Islamologist, I am also interested in the Arab world.

When I watch al-Jazeera, I see bought-and-paid-for Arab talking heads bemoaning the Iranian influence in Iraq and espousing the "national interests" of Arab countries. In fact, "national interests" are worse than irrelevant; they are part of the enemy's divide-and-conquer strategy aimed at containing and then destroying the rebirth of Islamic civilization.

I am not of the Shia persuasion. But it is obvious to me that the Islamic Republic of Iran is struggling to help establish a renascent Islamic civilization...and that the whole Arab world desperately needs Iranian-style Islamic revolutions to overthrow the Zio-American puppets and collaborators who run the region.

The Islamic world needs an Islamic revolution, and Iran provides the best model. This fact has been obscured by Zionist-manufactured anti-Iran and anti-Shia hysteria, a poison spread by the flunkies of the Arab dictators as well as a few nutty Sunni extremists.

Again, I am not a Shia. But let's admit that the Shia were right about one thing: In an Islamic society, the (morally and spiritually) best people should rule...and after the death of the Prophet SAAS, Ali and his sons were the best.

Just a generation of the death of the Prophet Muhammad, the same corrupt Quraish forces the Prophet and companions overthrew were back in power, and the incorruptible, spiritually-advanced son-in-law and grandsons of the Prophet had been murdered. This was an immense tragedy for Islam and for humanity. The Shia are absolutely right about this.

Where the Shia are wrong, in my opinion (and God knows best) is in their claim that descendants of the Prophet SAAS are the only proper rulers. In fact, it just so happened that the best people WERE the Ahl al-Bayt, at least for a few generations. But goodness is not entirely an inherited trait. Moral and spiritual integrity are not a matter of genetic pedigree.

Today, Iran is run by people with the moral and spiritual integrity to speak 9/11 truth to power, and to speak the truth about the horrors of Zionism and the benefits of the coming post-Zionist world.

Today, Shia and Sunni should work together to ensure that the best people are in power, and the worst barred from power. And  Shia and Sunni should work together to expel the Zionists and imperialists from Dar al-Islaam, and establish Islamic societies in the Muslim-majority lands. The Islamic Republic of Iran, despite its flaws and shortcomings and compromises, is in the forefront of that effort. Every Muslim on earth needs to stand up and say "Want to attack Iran? You'll have to go through me."

Arabian rulers align themselves with Zionism and imperialism against Islamic Iran


Abu Dharr, The Street Minbar newsgroup

Muslim public opinion in general and Arabian public opinion in particular is at a loss to properly understand the Islamic Republic of Iran. Many people have an intuitive feeling that the Islamic orientation in Iran is for the long-term benefit of Muslims worldwide. The moneyed classes, the political elites, and the sectarian protagonists don't see things that way — their instincts tell them that the Islamic Republic of Iran is expansionist and, therefore, a threat!

   Some of them have come out of their diplomatic silence and stated in public that Iran is more dangerous than Israel. They, at politically sensitive times, remind us that Iran occupies three United Arab Emirates islands, that Iran oppresses the Ahwazi population of Arab descent, that Iran is coordinating its moves inside Iraq with the American occupation forces, and that the Shi`i populations of Iraq and the (Arabian) Gulf owe their allegiance to Shi`i Iran and not to their own people. (Remember the Jordanian King and the Egyptian Pharaoh-cum-president who talked about a Shi`i crescent a couple of years ago). And finally they say that Iran is using the Palestinian issue as a diplomatic Trojan Horse to salvage its nuclear program.

   Anyone who has the time and the patience to go through the official Arabian press gets the unmistakable impression that the Islamic Republic of Iran is "Zionist danger" on the verge of going nuclear while a forty year-old nuclear Zionist Israel is the Arabians' comrade in arms. Don't be surprised if the media networks belonging to Arabian petro-interests imply that President Mahmud Ahmadinejad is the new Holy Persian Emperor. When it comes to Islamic Iran there is a common denominator that is shared by Arabian nationalists, Islamic sectarians, and westoxicated liberals. The glue that keeps these otherwise contradictory elements together is the Saudi riyal, the American dollar, and the euro.

   This motley assortment of religious and ideological types cannot see several hundred nuclear bombs and weapons in Israel; rather they have their eyes fixed on an Iran that is rumored primarily by Tel Aviv and Washington to be in a matter of a few years in possession of nuclear weapons. The Arabian media have a topsy-turvy view of facts. The political neanderthals in Riyadh, Cairo, and `Amman who are leading the Afro-Asian Arabian flock are preparing public opinion for an alignment of imperialism, Zionism, and Arabian munafiqs against the Islamic political order in Iran. There is a new tripartite force in the womb of the Holy Land precincts from Makkah to Jerusalem. The anti-intellectual and artless politicians in Arabian countries want to survive by any means necessary on their thrones and in the palaces; and if that means they shall politically cohabit with the evil governments of Israel and its American bedfellow then that is exactly what they will do. For the bloodline rulers of Arabia, the Lord of Makkah no longer counts; it is the lord of Washington to whom they should submit.

    Some oily but squeaky Muslims from the Gulf and the Peninsula say with all the political ingenuousness that goes with it, "Why doesn't the Islamic Republic of Iran relinquish control of the three islands of Abu Musa, the major Tunb and the minor Tunb (al-Tunb al-Kubra and al-Tunb al-Sughra) to its rightful owner — the United Arab Emirates? As if the Islamic Republic of Iran sent in its armed forces and occupied these three islands. Their short and shallow memory does not tell them that the Islamic Republic of Iran assumed responsibility of its geographical areas — including these three islands — from the late and never lamented Shah, who was the darling of the Saudi regime and the political ally of the (Arabian) Gulfers when Arabian nationalism under the tutelage of the late Jamal `Abd al-Nasir was at its peak. It was not the Islamic Republic of Iran that grabbed the southern territories of al-Ahwaz, otherwise referred to in official Ba`thi political literature as `Arabistan, from al-ummah al-`arabiyah (the Arabian Nation).

   Let us refresh these Islamist history losers that the Islamic State in Iran assumed political responsibility for a vast area of land that includes many nationalities such as the Persians, Arabians, Kurds, Baluchis, Uzbeks, Lurs, and Turks. The only thing all these people have in common is their Islamic character and civilization. The majority of these peoples happen to have Shi`i persuasion as their denominational preference. It may not be off the mark to say that there are some non-Shi`i and non-Persian Muslims in Iran who feel they are not full political and civic participants of the Islamic State. And it is on the mark to acknowledge that the leadership in the Islamic State understands this very well and is doing whatever it can — given the war conditions imposed on it — to ameliorate this situation.

   The Arabian political mind, void of its Islamic content, has a problem. It wants to pick a fight with non-Arabians because of slivers of territories parceled out by British and French colonialists to Iranians and Turks at a time when all of these Arabians combined do not have the will-power to forge one united and coordinated political order, that is, government. The same problem exists between Arabian nationalists and Turks in what the Turks call the region of Hatay and the Arabians call Iskandarun between Turkey and Syria. Let us face the facts: the Arabian countries suffer from backdoor occupation — the non-representative Arabian regimes — and from in-your-face occupations — Palestine, Iraq, Ceuta and Melilla (Moroccan areas). Somalia has become a failed nation-state; Sudan is threatened with the same destiny as Somalia, and lurking not far behind is Morocco. The United Arab Emirates, that is so sensitive about the Arab identity of its three "Iranian" occupied Islands, has lost its own Arabian identity. Arabians in their United Arab Emirates are the overwhelming minority — while foreigners and slave-laborers constitute 80% of its population.

   To be blunt: at a time when Islamic Iran broke out of the global Zionist-imperialist network 31 years ago, the Arabian political elites have prostituted themselves to the same network of political rape and economic plunder. The social world — as the physical world — does not tolerate a vacuum. So when Iraq presented a void, Islamic Iran moved in. Why should anyone in his Islamic mind be bothered by an Islamic neighbor moving into Iraq to dislodge an imperialist intruder — the USA? The Arabian political and elitist crybabies have their own selves to blame; and if they could see through the emotional knots they are in they can easily identify the Saudi family kingdom for the socio-economic and politico-military mess that they are all in.

   If these same Arabian myopics could put on their corrective Islamic lenses they would realize that the leadership in Islamic Iran has gone out on a political limb in its support of the Palestinians who are neither Iranian nor Shi`is; inside of Islamic Iran there are sectarian and nationalist pressure groups who are not convinced that their government is looking out for them. These, too, in a very roundabout way, are allies of the Arabian nationalists and Islamic sectarians.

   Islamic Iran, hence Arab Iran, is the powerhouse of the whole region. It is the only principled and reliable supporter of the Islamic Resistance against Zionist occupation and expansionism. In view of this, it is Islamic Iran that is working on liberating what everyone says is Arab land, not Iranian land. Over the past two decades, it was the Arabian regimes that helped militarist American imperialism to occupy Iraq. Take Islamic Iran out of the equation and the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon and Palestine become sitting ducks for the Israeli Zionist bombers and shooters. If the Arabians cannot do a thing to support their Palestinian brothers they should stop blaming Islamic Iran for helping them. The same Arabian regimes that backed the American occupation of Iraq are also the ones that give backbone to anti-Islamic and anti-Iranian propaganda.

   While the officials and their media mouthpieces are in knots over Islamic Iran, the imperialist regime in Washington and its Zionist client in Tel Aviv are not confused by nationalism or sectarianism as they take a hard look at Islamic Iran. In the latest development the US regime has stationed a second aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln in the waters separating Arabia and Persia. It is anchored in the Arabian and what many naive Muslims would say "Sunni" ruled Bahrain. This is the first time in the past two years that the US political-military elite has stationed two of its aircraft carriers in the Gulf between Arabia and Persia. While the Arabians are in a confused mess about "what is Iran" the USS Harry S. Truman with its four squadrons of Hornet and Super Hornet fighter-bombers, surveillance and command craft, electronic warfare craft, squadrons of helicopters and transports are marking time for the Zionists in Washington to give them their strike-commands.

   To prove their loyalties, the Saudi and Egyptian armed forces secretly coordinated their first-ever joint military exercises in October. It was called Exercise Tabuk-2 and it was a mock exercise to repulse not Israeli but Iranian armed forces. This was reported to have taken place between Oct 17 and Oct 21, under the command of the acting Saudi Aviation and Defense Minister his highness Prince Khalid ibn Sultan, son of Prince Sultan and half brother of Bandar ibn Sultan (both Bandar and Sultan are said to be recuperating from serious medical problems in Morocco, the first undergoing five medical procedures and the second fighting his last days against terminal illness. Saudi press reports said Bandar returned to the kingdom in mid-October).

    And there you have it: the perfect alliance between kafirs and munafiqs in contravention of the ayah that instructs committed Muslims not to confederate their political and military secrets with Zionists and imperialists, "O You, who are firmly committed [to Allah's power and authority]! Do not predicate al-Yahud and al-Nasara (politico-military Jews and Christians) as your superior allies…" (5:82).

Chomsky: No Evidence al-Qaeda Did 9/11



Chomsky: US-led Afghan war,  criminal 
11/3/2010
Renowned Jewish-American scholar Noam Chomsky says US invasion of Afghanistan was illegal since to date there is no evidence that al-Qaeda has carried out the 9/11 attacks.

"The explicit and declared motive of the [Afghanistan] war was to compel the Taliban to turn over to the United States, the people who they accused of having been involved in World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist acts. The Taliban…they requested evidence…and the Bush administration refused to provide any," the 81-year-old senior academic made the remarks on Press TV's program a Simple Question.

"We later discovered one of the reasons why they did not bring evidence: they did not have any."


* * *


Has Noam Chomsky gone sane?

Chomsky spent the first nine years after 9/11 alternately ignoring and attacking the 9/11 truth movement. Had he instead chosen to champion 9/11 truth, and had the rest of the left joined him as it surely would have, more than one million murdered people would be alive today, and tens of millions would not have had their lives ruined.

Now Chomsky is stating the obvious: There is no evidence whatsoever supporting the official version of 9/11. None.


Is this the same Chomsky who wrote two years ago:

Let's suppose it turns out that the WTC was destroyed by a controlled demolition.  Then who would the finger point to?  Osama bin Laden, obviously. (source)

Did Chomsky really think Osama Bin Laden could have engineered not only the most sophisticated controlled demolitions of the tallest buildings ever taken down, but would have disguised and covered up those demolitions (through his control of such federal agencies as NIST, FEMA, and the FBI)?   Statements like these led me to believe that Chomsky is either insane or not acting in good faith.

Is he returning to sanity? Finally deciding to act in good faith? Or just making a belated attempt to cover his ass for the history books?

False-Flag Film Alert: Mel Gibson's "Edge of Darkness"

Guest blog by Rolf Lindgren, 2008 Barrett for Congress campaign advisor. Note: I have been told by people who know Mel Gibson and his father Hunt Gibson that they are 9/11 truth supporters. This film shows it.  -KB

False Flag: Mel Gibson's Edge of Darkness

Move over V For Vendetta Fans, it's time for Mel Gibson's Edge of Darkness!

Ever wonder why the NWO hates Mel Gibson?  Well, watch his latest film that went the theaters in January and is now out on DVD!  The film was based on a 1985 BBC TV series.

Edge of Darkness
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=edgeofdarkness.htm

I am not going to spoil the plot, but instead get you a few teasers:

1) The film involves a corrupt big government/big corporation fascist partnership.  Nuclear weapons are being manufactured to foreign specifications, so that if the weapons are ever found or used they can be traced back to a false nation of origin.  This is a blatant false-flag element to the plot I've never seen before in a high budget Hollywood movie.

2) The use of "national security" and related terms in the film is either extremely funny or extremely accurate & disturbing, depending on your tastes.

3) Remember the Clinton body count or the JFK witnesses?  You'll think of them during this film.

Mel Gibson's latest film deserves more attention from 9/11 Truth Activists.  It would have done better in the theaters had it not been matched up against Avatar.  But it still reached an audience of several million, and that will expand with DVD sales.

I watched it, so should you.

yours in truth,

Rolf
