Three major thesis are in competition concerning the culprit of the 9/11 attacks:

 

1. Islam Job: the official conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, blaming Muslim terrorists in general, and Osama bin Laden in particular;
2. Inside Job: the dominant thesis within the so-called 9/11 Truth movement, which accuses the American government, or a faction within the American Deep State;
3. Mossad Job: the rising alternative thesis within the community of truth seekers, which claim that the masterminds were a Zionist network close to the Israeli Likud.

There are variations on each thesis and middle grounds between them, but three camps can clearly be distinguished: the first ridicule the second as “conspiracy theorists”, while the second loath the third as anti-Semites. Each thus justifies its refusal to weigh the evidence produced by the other. Acknowledging this reality, by renouncing the bipolar vision of an information warfare between official liars and 9/11 truthers, and paying attention to the debate (or absence of the debate) between Inside-jobbers and Mossad-jobbers, is the first step toward a paradigm shift in “9/11ology”.

JFK 911This article takes the view of the third thesis. The author belongs to those who, after thousands of hours of research, came to the conclusion that the 9/11 false flag operation was planned by a Zionist network, with the aim of dragging the United States into a “war on terror” of their invention, of which the only ultimate beneficiary will be Israel, as Netanyahu well understood from the very day: “It’s very good […], it will generate immediate sympathy […], strengthen the bond between our two peoples.”[1]

I have already listed the evidence against Israel in a previous article and in my book JFK-9/11 (Progressive Press, 2014). The subject of this article is not the truth on 9/11—who did what and how—, but the media war on 9/11: who says what and why. Nevertheless, such an approach requires that we are able to weigh the credibility of each claim, and we will do that on a few key points.

We can notice from the outset that theses 1 and 3 each accuse a foreign power, unlike thesis 2. Before even looking at the evidence, it is obvious that an Outside Job thesis is more credible than the Inside Job thesis. There is something monstrous in the idea that a government can deceive and terrorize its own citizens by killing thousands of them, just for starting a series of wars which are not even in the nation’s interest. By comparison, a foreign power attacking the US under the false flag of a third power almost seems like fair play. This is an important remark, because it makes us wonder how and why the 9/11 Truth movement has been led to endorse massively the outrageous thesis 2 without even considering the more likely thesis 3. This is one of the questions I will tackle here.

The thesis that the masterminds of 9/11 worked for Israel does not mean that the Bush administration is innocent. Thesis 3 admits that thesis 2, unlike thesis 1, is not completely false and rests on hard evidence pointing to US complicity. But it claims that thesis 2 overrates that evidence while ignoring the evidence pointing to Israel. The question is to what extent it does so intentionally, that is, to what extent thesis 2 is a “controlled opposition” intended to cover up the truth of thesis 3.

Asking this type of question does not mean suspecting anyone who defends an erroneous or incomplete theory of being a hypocrite. Most people defending one theory or the other do so sincerely, based on the information they have access to. I have myself been a believer in thesis 1 for 7 years, and in thesis 2 for 2 years, before progressively moving on to thesis 3 from 2010. On the other hand, we can assume that those who lead masses into error on a long term, are not just mistaken but lying —they may also be lying to themselves, i.e., engaged in self-deception. In any case, it is legitimate to investigate the background and the means of opinion makers, and when they are caught lying or distorting the truth, we can ponder about their motivation.

This is what we will do in the first part, so as to demonstrate that liers are not confined to the official storytellers’ camp. It is not enough that someone challenges the official Big Lie for us to believe him blindly; his arguments and allegations should be judged by the same standard. The purpose of the two following examples is, firstly, to show the need for a critical mind when listening to dissenting theses, and, secondly, to show the need for a new paradigm taking into account the several layers of lies stacked on top of the truth. We will outline this new paradigm in a second part, in the form of a working hypothesis. Then, in a third part, we will see if this new paradigm is consistent with certain technical issues currently dividing 9/11 truthers.

Physicians and human rights activists say evidence shows Israel used internationally banned weapons against civilians during its recent military offensive against the Gaza Strip, Press TV reports.

According to international experts and physicians present during the most recent Israeli onslaught on Gaza, Tel Aviv once again used Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME), which are usually carried by US-made Hellfire rockets, against Gaza’s heavily-populated residential areas.

Injuries caused by DIME bombs, also used during Israel’s 2009 offensive, are distinguishable from injuries caused by other weapons.

“Most of the weapons that were used to kill hundreds of civilians in Gaza contained depleted uranium. They also used new weapons that even international experts were unable to figure out their types,” Gaza Bomb Disposal Squad’s Ahmad Abudayyah said.

Reports indicate that Israel also used armor piercing (AP) bombs, causing massive explosions resulting in large numbers of civilian casualties, including many women and children.

Thermobaric weapons were also used to burn down entire residential buildings in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said millions of kilograms of explosives were indiscriminately dumped on civilians in Gaza.

Experts also say that Israeli forces used internationally banned munitions like Flechette shells, which contain depleted uranium and other chemical agents.

During a recent summit on Gaza, internationally renowned Gaza-based Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert said Israeli soldiers intentionally targeted and killed Palestinians children.

Israel started pounding targeting the enclave on July 7, inflicting heavy losses on the Palestinian land. Almost 2,140 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women, children and the elderly, were killed in the 50 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Around 11,000 others were injured.

89 Palestine families wiped out by Israel’s Gaza campaign

25 Aug 2014 At least 89 entire families have been killed in Gaza since Israel started its military campaign, Palestinian health officials said. The Judeh family, a woman and her four children, died after an airstrike hit their house reportedly without warning. The incident happened in Tel Azatar, in the northern part of the Gaza strip and the family of five was killed instantly, after the Israeli Defense Forces launched their attack, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports. Locals said no warnings were given that airstrikes were imminent.

“The role of the President of the United States is to support the decisions that are made by the people of Israel.”          Ann Lewis, sister of former Congressman Barney Frank

The idea that the best America could achieve in Iraq would be to divide the country into Kurdish, Sunni and Shi’ite sectors is not really new. It was an old idea in 1982 when Ze’ev Schiff, the military correspondent of Ha’aretz, first suggested it. (Ha’aretz 6/2/1982). It was also mentioned by Oded Yinon in that same year in A Strategy For Israel in the Nineteen Eighties.

Prior to that on June 7, 1981 Israel bombed an Iraqi nuclear project at Osirak. Iraq had purchased an Osiris class nuclear reactor from France in 1976. The Israelis waited until the Iraqis had spent a lot of money and resources before destroying it with a preemptive strike. This coincided with the Israeli election cycle. Three weeks after Osirak, Menachem Begin trounced Shimon Peres at the polls because the latter did not understand the Israeli voters’ desire to bomb Arabs. That is provided no Israelis die.

Harvard physicist Richard Wilson after the attack concluded that the facility was not suited for production of weapons-grade plutonium.

On June 8, 1967 The Israelis killed 34 Americans on the USS Liberty. A BBC press release for the documentary Dead in the Water said that President Johnson, who had been told by the Israelis that Egypt had done it, sent jets from a carrier to attack Egypt with nuclear weapons. The American embassy in Cairo did receive a message saying that the US was going to bomb Cairo. The US avoided nuclear war because the Liberty survivors were able to radio that they had been attacked by Israel. The planes were recalled.

The Israelis have always been willing to fight to the last American.

Israel and ISIL are allies: Syrian envoy

16 Aug 2014 Syria’s ambassador to the UN says Israel allows the free flow of weapons and ISIL militants into the occupied Golan Heights and then into the rest of Syria. Bashar Ja’afari told Press TV on Friday that the ISIL Takfiri terrorists have an undeclared alliance with Israel and are engaged in a secret agreement with the [government]. The Israelis help the Takfiris infiltrate into the separation line on the Golan Heights from Jordan, where their training camps are located, the Syrian diplomat said.

The Israeli regime’s prolonged blockade of the war-torn Gaza Strip is taking its toll on many wounded Palestinians who are in urgent need of treatment outside the Palestinian enclave.

 

A nine-year-old Palestinian girl was admitted to Gaza’s Shifa Hospital more than three weeks ago after being paralyzed from the neck down in an Israeli airstrike.

 

Maha Sheikh Khalil urgently needs to be treated abroad in order to regain some of her nerve function, but she and her family are still waiting for permission from Israel to move her out of Gaza.

 

“I feel like I can’t do anything with my body. And when I move like this, I can’t feel my body moving,” Maha, who has lost her mother and sister in the Israeli attack, said from her hospital bed on Sunday.

 

Her doctor, Basil Baker, also noted that if Maha gets an infection in the hospital, it would be difficult to treat her, adding, “This means that she will be worse, and will not have any chance for any nerve recovery.”

 

The death toll from Israel’s deadly aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip has hit 1,942, including nearly 470 children. More than 230 of the victims are women.

 

Nearly 10,000 Palestinians have been injured in the Israeli offensive which began on July 8.

 

The Israeli army says around 65 Israelis have been killed in the conflict, but the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas puts the number at more than 150.

Two leading Hollywood actors are facing a serious backlash from the US film industry’s top executives for openly criticizing Israel’s atrocities in the besieged Gaza Strip.

 

Pledges to shun the two pro-Palestinian Spanish actors are believed to have been made privately by a handful of top Hollywood executives. The actors reportedly could face losing work over the criticism.

 

The Spanish actress Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem wrote an open letter in which they called the killing of Palestinians by the Israeli military a “genocide.”

 

Any criticism of Israel in the US is considered anti-Semitism and is not tolerated, highlighting the depth of Israeli lobby’s influence on American media and the government.

 

An increasing number of artists and celebrities, however, are criticizing Israel for the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza strip.

 

The Spanish couple was among 100 film professionals to sign the open Spanish letter in July calling on the European Union to end Israel’s military operation in Gaza. The letter urged Western leaders to “condemn the bombing by land, sea and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.”

 

In addition to the open letter, Bardem wrote an op-ed in Spain’s El Diario newspaper.

 

“In the horror happening in Gaza right now there is NO place for distance or neutrality. It’s a war of extermination waged against occupation and to people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances, and children are targets and presumed to be terrorist. It’s hard to understand and impossible to justify. And it’s disgraceful that western countries are permitting such genocide,” he wrote.

 

Israeli military aggression against Gaza, which began on July 8, has claimed the lives of more than 1,918 Palestinians, including more than 400 children, and wounded about 10,000 others. The United Nations says over 80 percent of the fatalities in Gaza have been civilians.

 

A Press TV correspondent said in a report on Wednesday that the scope of devastation and misery across Gaza is massive. Many of the injured are left in need of treatment and residents have no homes to return to.

 

In addition to homes, UN shelters, schools and hospitals have also been frequently targeted in the Israeli military offensive.

‘Former Sydney Morning Herald columnist Mike Carlton says he resigned from the paper because he was “sick of being stuffed around” over his angry response to critics of one of his articles.

Carlton’s column, which was published more than a week ago, was critical of Israel‘s actions in the conflict with Gaza.

He resigned last night after being told by Fairfax’s director of news and business media, Sean Aylmer, that he would be suspended because of inappropriate comments he made to critics of the column.’

‘With the recent slaughter of Palestinians taking place on television screens across the world, only the grossly misinformed would believe that Israel’s Palestinian extermination program is actually “self-defense.”

Yet for all of Israel’s whining about how it is being targeted by “Islamic extremists” and “terrorists,”(which should be translated to mean Palestinians, Iran, or any other secular or nationalist Arab government in the region) there is a curious and deafening silence when it is confronted with actual terrorists and Muslim fanatics such as ISIS, al-Nusra, and the myriad of other fundamentalist groups waging jihad in Syria and Iraq.

This bizarre silence has yet to raise the eyebrows of the somnambulant general public.’

Help Israel avoid war crimes charges,’ Netanyahu urges US lawmakers

7 Aug 2014 Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu appealed to American legislators to help Israel stave off what is likely to be a concerted global push to haul the country’s military and political leaders to international courts for alleged [acutal] war crimes committed in Gaza, The New York Post is reporting on Thursday.

Only 2 of over 40 Congressional Black Caucus members voted against legitimizing the 2009 Israeli massacre of 1400 mostly civilians in Gaza, with seven CBC members abstaining. Last week, with the Gaza death toll climbing toward 1,000 not a single CBC member could be bothered to lift a voice against Israel’s genocidal assault of the moment or its ongoing apartheid state in general. Black America should hang our collective heads in shame.

Back in the 1970s, when the Congressional Black Caucus began calling itself “the conscience of the Congress,” that was almost literally true. CBC members could be relied upon not just to reliably vote for raising wages and expenditures on housing, health care and education, but to keep the issues of full employment and opposition to unjust war near the front of their public agendas.

By the late 1980s, a gaggle of former CBC staffers had moved through the revolving doors of elite affirmative action to become corporate lobbyists, with the same ethics and table manners as their white colleagues, but with black faces. Thanks in large part to their efforts, by 2000 a tsunami of corporate cash began filling up the coffers of incumbent CBC members, their black replacements, or in the cases of Alabama’s Earl Hilliard and Georgia’s Cynthia McKinney, their black opponents.

Only a single member of the CBC, Rep. Barabra Lee opposed President Bush’s blank check for invading anywhere he pleased in Septermber of 2001, and by the 2003 invasion of Iraq, four CBC members, some of them swimming in donations from military contractors, raced down to the White House to have their pictures taken with Bush as the bombs were about to explode over Baghdad.

By the 109th Congress of 2005-2006 the CBC’s political compass had been decisively reset. 2005 was the year of Katrina. For decades there had been predictions that whenever “the big one” hit New Orleans, a city where a majority of residents didn’t even own cars, thousands or tens of thousands would perish. I lived in Chicago and read those predictions in the papers there several times during the 80s and 90s. Katrina ultimately proved to be the excuse for authorities to permanently expel more than a hundred thousand African Americans, mostly renters but also entire neighborhoods of black homeowners and black owned local businesses as well. As the highest ranking black politicians in the nation, the Congressional Black Caucus could have demanded and held federal hearings on every aspect of the Katrina disaster and its aftermath, ensuring a real public debate on how the region would be rebuilt and for whom.

But House Democrats were focused narrowly on winning the 2006 election, and in their political calculus, having Democrats identified as the party of black people was not a winning strategy. Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi forbade the Congressional Black Caucus from demanding or holding hearings. Only Georgia’s Cynthia McKinney defied her, and was forced to partner with House Republicans for the hearings to take place at all. The only CBC member Pelosi allowed to take part in the Katrina hearings was the lazy and corrupt “Dollar Bill” Jefferson who nominally represented black New Orleans. The rest of the supposedly powerful and influential CBC, from its deans Conyers and Rangel on down stayed away.

If they were still the conscience of the Congress the CBC would have called together some of the nation’s black civil engineers, architects, urban planners and others to articulate a vision of a rebuilt Gulf Coast for the people who lived there before. Instead the vision of the Heritage Foundation prevailed. A hundred thousand black New Orleans residents were deported to the four corners of the continental US, their public school system privatized, their rental apartments razed, their health care systems shut down, and the water, electric and gas grids not reactivated for the entire sections of town where they once lived. Thanks to the hands-off attitude of the CBC, President Bush was even able to exclude all journalists from the teams which recovered bodies or the places where remains were assembled, so there is no independent verification of the government’s suspiciously small count of fatalities.

That was when Democrats were still the minority in Congress. We’re always told how important it is for Democrats to gain or maintain control of the House. They got that in the 2006 elections, and Democrats have had the White House since the 2008 election as well, though they handed the House back at the end of 2010. Has all that extra power made them bolder in the pursuit of justice? Sadly, no.

Israel’s vicious apartheid regime celebrated Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration with the massacre of 1400 people in Gaza, mostly civilians, and the destruction of a great part of the enclave’s infrastructure, down to chicken farms and water systems. The new Congress called it righteous self-defense, with 390 yeas, 5 nays and 22 “present”The CBC was 2 of those nays, Gwen Moore (WI) and Maxine Waters (CA), and 7 of the “presents”, Edwards (MD), Ellison (MN), Johnson (GA), Lee (TX), Payne (NJ), Kilpatrick (MI), and Watson (CA).

This month, as the civilian death toll in the latest Israeli criminal orgy of collective punishment mounted toward 1,000, the US House passed a nearly identical resolution, calling this massacre legitimate “self-defense” as well. This time the House vote, including that of the Congressional Black Caucus wasunanimousNot a single member of the CBC, despite their much heralded brand of standing for civil rights and against apartheid here and around the world, bothered to publicly question the racist ethnocracy that is the Israeli state. After signing the blank check with the rest of their colleagues, CBC members Conyers (MI), Lee (CA), Johnson (GA) and Ellison (MN) tried to cover their shame with a letter to Secretary of State Kerry urging a cease-fire, something which Kerry claims to have been doing anyway.

All CBC members absolutely know that Israel is an apartheid society, with one set of laws applying to Jews, a second to Israeli Arabs and a third to Palestinians. Congressional Black Caucus members know that Israel requires different colored license plates for non-Jews so their vehicles can be profiled at a distance, and Jewish-only roads between settlements carved from the villages of Palestinians and watched voer by military garrisons. They know that Israel refuses to recognize mixed marriages, or even marriages between Palestinians in Gaza and those on the West Bank. Black members of Congress know what an ethnocracy is, and even though they claim to have opposed it in South Africa and here at home, they choose to endorse it in Israel, out of greed and subservience.

As we wrote in BAR back in 2012…

Whatever its root cause, the current support of the black political class for Israel’s maintenance of a colonial settler state constitutes a massive, hypocritical hole in their collective souls. Most of the world backed our own struggle against Jim Crow, and we congratulated ourselves for contributing to the downfall of the old regime in South Africa. And now, when our turn comes round again, when the United States is the only government capable of restraining the vicious Israeli onslaught, just by the threat of its disapproval, its non-renewal of loan guarantees or weapons giveways or military contracts —- we are silent.

For African Americans, our hypocrisy goes deeper and further than our leaders. It filters all the way down to ordinary people whose attachment to their First Black President is so uncritical that they decouple their FBP from any responsibility for his policies. Many Obama supporters say they oppose Israeli aggression and wring their hands wishing the president they voted for and hustled others into voting for would do something different. In the eyes of the rest of the world, as Margaret Kimberley points out, they are as guilty of abetting Israeli atrocities as the rabid partisans of AIPAC…”

What would one of our glittering and supposedly powerful members of the Congressional Black Caucus tell a child in Gaza today? What would they tell a parent whose children have been maimed or murdered, with weaponry probably designed and/or manufactured in the US?

Our nation is the armorer, financier and protector of Israel’s savage ethnocracy.  We are all compromised, we are all implicated in its crimes.  It’s time to call our black political class, and each other to account. In the coming week, Black Agenda Report will reach out to our friends and colleagues and try to find some new ways to do exactly that.
