Skip to comments.Arabic-Speaking Jews Behind 9/11 Attacks?
Posted on 01/03/2002 4:14:29 AM PST by IcommGen
An author named Michael Collins Piper wrote an article that appeared in Londons Arabic newspaper, Asharq al-Awsat, in which he suggests that Kahanist Jews in the Mossad could be behind the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. He poses two questions: Were those hijackers really Arabs? Would Israeli agents carry out a suicide mission that could cost American Jewish lives?
By way of an answer, Piper refers to a JDL leader quoted by Robert I. Friedman in the Village Voice as saying, in 1986, If you think the Shias in Lebanon are capable of fantastic acts of suicidal terrorism, the Jewish underground will strike targets that will make Americans gasp: How could Jews do such things? Therefore, the Asharq al-Awsat article continues, it is entirely conceivable the Middle Eastern men described by passengers on the airliners were not Arabs at all instead, these hijackers could well have been Israeli-sponsored fundamentalist Jewish fanatics (posing as Bin Laden Arabs) hoping to instigate an all-out US war against the Arab world.
The author tries to identify a suicide tradition in Jewish history, going back to the famous mass suicide at Masada by Jewish zealots. The article contains no other examples of this tradition, but does mention the Israeli willingness, as reported by reputed ex-Mossad man Victor Ostrovsky, to undertake missions from which there would be no escape if they are caught.
The Arabic language heard on the black box of one airplane becomes more evidence of Mossad involvement, according to Piper, for it is a long-standing policy for Israeli intelligence to disguise Jews as Arabs: One of the established goals of the intelligence and security services is that each officer be fluent in Arabic Many Israelis have come from Arab countries where they were born and educated and appear more Arab than Israeli The author even quotes a 1998 article from Haaretz that reportedly alleges that Shin Bet agents operating among Israeli Arabs in the 1950s even married Moslem women and had children with them in order to maintain their cover. Piper goes on to suggest that the evidence found linking the September attacks was far too conveniently placed and led to one conclusion that Arabs were involved. This leads him to ask, Why Arabs would plant evidence implicating their own is a point mainstream [pro-Israel] media chooses not to address.
Should one doubt that Israel would carry out an attack that could be calculated to kill so many American Jews, Piper declares, Hard-line Israelis are willing to kill Jews if it means assuring Israels survival. According to the Asharq al-Awsat article, Rabbi Meir Kahane called for killing Hellenist [i.e. Western-oriented] spiritually sick [Jews] who threaten the existence of Judaism. That would include those working in slick offices in the World Trade Center, living on Long Island, rather than kibbutzing in Israel. According to Pipers understanding, or lack thereof, when Kahane called for all Jews to go home to Israel, that meant that [t]hose who refused to go home were expendable.
Yet, a few Jews writing essays is not enough to carry out the terrorist attacks of September, so the Asharq al-Awsat article claims that this Jewish attitude toward the West (exactly what the media says is the Islamic attitude) has support at the Mossads top levels. Furthermore, again depending on works by Robert I. Friedman, the articles author states that Ariel Sharon is one of the most potent supporters of such extremism. The article goes on to describe in depth what the author suggests is a possible motive for the attacks: To get Jews to see Israel as the last safe refuge. In order cause that to happen, Jewish lives, according to Pipers understanding of Zionism, are expendable. Quoting another Israeli, Ehud Sprinzak, the article claims that these views are a major school of modern Israeli thought. They also, according to Piper represent widespread opinion in Israels military and intelligence services.
The Asharq al-Awsat article concludes with, Did Ariel Sharon help orchestrate the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to instigate all-out US war against Israels enemies? Dont discount it.
What is more amazing to me then this article is that there are millions and millions of people in the West that will simply not accept what the Islamic world is really about. I hope the world never gets to the situation where we get to point our fingers in their faces and say 'I told you so', because by then, it will be too late.
It is kind of them to constantly remind us how stupid and venal the "Islam is the religion of peace" crowd is.
Careful, without realizing it, I fear you may be a victim of the same threat you warn about. (I.e. you're thinking like somebody from a Judeo-Christian culture,..not a Muslim)
Many of the same people who fail to accept what the Islam world is all about, are also so arrogant that even when displayed to them, in their face,..i.e. WTC attack, they will still refuse to deduce any conclusions.
They will simply remain blank faced, arrogant, angry, and seek power by any method while ignoring the threat. (Funny, if somebody didn't follow the thread, they might think I was describing a Senator from NY.)
If it was the Mossad, it didn't really do much to help Israel. Instead, it increased the probability of a violent war elsewhere in the Middle East which would could spread to Israel, and endanger Israel even more.
That is why I truly find the theory hilarious.
Yet, i think there are people (millions) who will not wake up until lets say 2 nukes go off, maybe one in tel-aviv and one in new york, london, paris (would that be so bad?, j/k)take your pick...
