As we approach the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11, let’s not forget one of its hardest-hit, innocent victims – the American Muslim community. (1)
I see that CNN is re-broadcasting its documentary, Unwelcome: Muslims Next Door (below), which sums up how many Americans view Muslims. But is there any justification for their attitude?
If we consider what I believe are the real facts of 9/11, I would suggest there’s no justification for it. It’s time to vindicate the American Muslim community and end its suffering.
In our look at the events of that day, where shall we start? At the top, with “mastermind” Osama bin Laden?
If you believe that Osama bin Laden orchestrated 9/11 from a cave in Afghanistan, if you think he followed the events that day and gleefully commented on them, consider where CBS News says bin Laden was on Sept. 10, 2001.
According to Dan Rather, CBS, Bin Laden was hospitalized in Rawalpindi. Pakistan, one day before the 9/11 attacks.
DAN RATHER, CBS ANCHOR: As the United states and its allies in the war on terrorism press the hunt for Osama bin Laden, CBS News has exclusive information tonight about where bin Laden was and what he was doing in the last hours before his followers struck the United States September 11. …
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) BARRY PETERSEN, CBS CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Everyone remembers what happened on September 11. Here`s the story of what may have happened the night before. It is a tale as twisted as the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
CBS News has been told that the night before the September 11 terrorist attack, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan. He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan.
Pakistan intelligence sources tell CBS News that bin Laden was spirited into this military hospital in Rawalpindi for kidney dialysis treatment. On that night, says this medical worker who wanted her identity protected, they moved out all the regular staff in the urology department and sent in a secret team to replace them. She says it was treatment for a very special person. The special team was obviously up to no good. …

Bin Laden has been killed many times for an attack with which he was unassociated. His most recent “death” was staged in Abbotabad this year. The SEALs who allegedly killed him were themselves later killed.
But the real Osama appears to have died back in the last days of 2001.
Think about it for a moment. If bin Laden was on dialysis then, how could he have outrun those looking for him for ten years? Did he drag his dialysis machine about after himself? Very unlikely. Few people on dialysis have been known to survive ten years, as far as I’m aware. If you know differently, please tell me.
Revealing that Osama was probably killed in 2001 may have been the cause of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto (see video below). Undoubtedly the same people who ordered the assassination of Bhutto could tell us much about what really happened on 9/11.
Well, if Osama was not in an Afhani cave directing matters, what about the nineteen “Arab” hijackers who allegedly did all the damage? After 9/11, the UK Telegraph tracked down at least six of the supposedly-dead hijackers. They were living in Saudi Arabia and Morocco. Ooops!
Dead or alive? I realize that these same nineteen hijackers outfoxed NORAD, the FBI, the CIA and airport security, but could they outfox death?
Take the case of Waleed al-Shehri, one of the hijackers for whom the FBI produced a photograph and the 9/11 Commission named as a hijacker, who allegedly stabbed one of the flight attendants on Flight 11 before it slammed into the North Tower.
But Al-Shehri, who lives in Morocco, where he works as a pilot, saw his photo and reported to the authorities. The BBC interviewed him. How could he be both dead and alive?
Saudia Arabia presented the facts on its citizens who were still alive to George Bush, who accepted them. But this account was not reported in the mainstream media. Why?
The discovery of the hijackers alive contradicts the official version and renders it not credible.
The authorities – the same ones who remained” oblivious” to 9/11 happening – say they identified precisely who the hijackers were (and that within a day of 9/11). Quite improbably, they say they even recovered one of the hijacker’s passports from the World Trade Center debris, not even singed with fire. It bears the hijacker’s name.
Yet none of the names of the hijackers appears on the flight manifests.
It is highly unlikely that Arab passengers could get on a flight bearing passports with names like Smith or Jorgenson. Yet no Arab names appear on the manifest of any plane associated with 9/11.
How could these Arab hijackers have gotten through security and onboard the flights? No one suggests that they came in from, say, the baggage compartment. They are described as being among the passengers. So how did they board?
These are examples of how I cannot know what the true story is, but I can know where the official story falls down.
Evidence is surfacing that Mohammed Atta and several other “hijackers” were murdered in Hamburg by Mossad some time before 9/11 and their identities stolen and used by Mossad agents to pose as them in the weeks and months before the attack.
Remember that Mossad agents were discovered celebrating the crash of the airplanes into the buildings. They were arrested but never charged, and quietly deported. Why not charged?
And so it goes with the “official version” of 9/11. Contradictions, inconsistencies, and other failures to explain crop up at us at every turn. And yet on the basis of this inadequate and contradicted evidence, we’ve condemned a whole community.
We ask for justice for the families of 9/11 because they are innocent victims of this catastrophe. I agree. But I also see the Muslim community at large as an innocent victim. Some day we’ll need to address the fact that the real perpetrators of 9/11 selected Muslims as their scapegoat and we’ve willingly gone along with that manipulation.
The American Muslim community is innocent of the black events of Sept. 11, 2001 and some day we’ll be obliged to acknowledge that fact. Why make that community more miserable for events with which it had no connection? The time to exonerate the American Muslim community is now.
