Some Current Perceptions Regarding 11 September 2001
By Russ Granata
(Speech at the Revisionist Conference in Trieste, Italy,
on October 6th and 7th of 2001)
The underlying cause of the
animosity against America is rooted in America's support of
Israel. Oh, of course Islamic militants abhor America's
terrorism against all those unfortunate folks trying to eke
out an existence in such poor places such as Iraq, Libya,
Sudan, Afghanistan, etcetera - but make no mistake about it,
it's the continual and gigantic American backing of
expansionist Israel which is the root cause of the animosity
against my country. If America were not Israel's big backer,
thousands of those innocent victims of the eleventh of
September could still be alive.
Thanks for that introduction and congratulations to the organizers of this conference here in Italy.
Before today, the most recent country outside of my native USA in which I was a scheduled Speaker was Lebanon, but of course we know that the Beirut Conference on Revisionism and Zionism was canceled due to the muzzling influence of the enemies of Free Speech. So it is with this in mind that I acknowledge the organizers of this Italian Revisionist Conference as dauntless comrades persevering in the honorable cause for the search of historical truth, and I for one say BRAVO!
Ladies and gentlemen if you remember just one thing from my presence with you here today, let it be simply this:
If America really wanted to prevent more September the 11th type of attacks upon itself, it would stop doing the things which provoked them!
The most provocative thing which is the main answer to the "why" is the American government's supplying Israel with everything for its aggression against the Palestinians and anyone else who helps them. Remember - the main reason why my country was attacked on the eleventh of September was because of the US support of Israel.
The Moslems have other grievances about America - but none so basic as the Israeli connection. America should stop killing and maiming countless innocent children in the Middle East, such as in Iraq for example, and lift its sanctions with all its terrible consequences. Talk about terrorism - the United States has, and continues to conduct terrorism!
I say that for any country to reduce the probability of receiving terrorism upon itself, it should simply refrain from delivering terrorism upon others!
And just how are people in my country now reacting to the current media blitz? They are showing the colors and running out of American flags to wave!
You know, I clearly remember during the early days of the John Birch Society that the wearing of American flag lapel pins by folks wanting to display their patriotism was stridently ridiculed by a Jewish-led opposition. Now, since September the eleventh, one sees the American flag everywhere folks are attaching them to their cars, buildings, on their persons, and street vendors are running out of flags to sell.
America is in a frenzy. As a matter of fact, it has been reported that an opinion poll of New Yorkers revealed that the people are overwhelmingly in favor of concentration camp type incarceration for those who show support for terrorists! But, only of foreign terrorists, of course!
There certainly has been a lot of perceptions regarding September the eleventh. It has been reported that there was inside trading in insurance and airline shares that points to a previous knowledge of the forthcoming attack and it has also been reported that there were some advance warnings in the Jewish-owned investment banking system. We shall have more on this.
In a different vein, there is a school of thought which perceives the air attacks on New York and Washington as marking the Close of the American Century - the end of global capitalism and mammonism with its devotion above all to the pursuit of wealth. This school of thought includes persons who sympathize for the Manhattan and Washington victims and their families, and who at the same time share with the grief of the Germans concerning the many more victims of the Anglo-American bomb terrorism against all those German civilians in their towns and cities. The pictures of the gray dust of Manhattan and Washington bring remembrance of the holocausts perpetrated by Anglo-Americans against Dresden and Hiroshima.
This school of thought perceives our current situation as a world-wide war on unseen fronts. They see the military defeat of the Germans in 1945 as leaving the peoples of Europe and the rest of the world unprotected from the American military forces and their plundering. The victors have been controlling the vanquished by various means including an incessant "re-education" propaganda as well as infecting them with the usurious interest-slavery virus of credits and unpayable indebtedness which have kept the vanquished peoples in thrall and in vassal status.
The air attacks struck at the heart of the monster and lamed it. The symbolic force of 11 September 2001 struck a blow at the self-satisfied, complacent attitude of the contemporary be-bop based American life-style. At this point, this is as yet a comparatively small war which is a war of liberation and at the same time a world war, because the enemy of the people controls the world.
There is a perception of an anti-Arab hysteria concerning the events of the eleventh of September which is being whipped up into a frenzy by the controlled mass media. There is the perception that we are in the midst of another cover-up being orchestrated by the media masters. There's a lot of questions, beginning with how was it possible for those actions to have occurred - how come nobody reported any of these highjackings to any of the various security sectors? The NSA, the National Security Agency, spies on the whole world via satellites - how could the NSA Echelon electronic net have not known anything at all about such a multi-faceted operation? It's no secret that the NSA is specialized to security in the skies - so just what was this space-based intelligence doing since it has not merely one, but several spy satellites engaged in real-time monitoring. How could Echelon have failed to notice several airliners going off course - and how could the FBI which is engaged in apprehending terrorists in the United States, and how could the CIA, whose duty it is to keep track of enemies of the US beyond its borders - how could all of them fail to notice anything about such an attack about to happen? Is it simply enough to try to blame it all on airport security - and what about the strange inaction of US military helicopters based near New York - for example, during the 18 minutes when the second terrorist aircraft was on course for its target - those 18 minutes would have been enough to hit it with air-to-air missiles - and all the more so because it approached the city from the side of the Hudson River and would have fallen in the water instead of on the city if it had been shot down.
And then there is the amazing ability of the terrorists - not only were they able to calculate fight times and make preparations without being noticed by any intelligence gathering procedures - so we are told - it turns out that they were able to fly modern airliners. Taken altogether, it is simply incredible that all of these things among others were beyond the knowledge or even the suspicion of the American intelligence network.
Query: What did the Mossad know?
Will not the method of Revisionism in the hands of researchers eventually shed more light on all this - absolutely!
There are as yet unconfirmed reports of a US military intelligence source having revealed details of an internal intelligence memo that points to the Israeli Mossad having links to the September 11th attacks. These attacks required a high level of military precision and the resources of an advanced intelligence agency. In addition, the attackers would have needed to be extremely familiar with both Air Force One flight operations, civilian airline flight paths and aerial assault tactics on sensitive US cities such as Washington and New York.
The attacks have certainly turned US public opinion firmly back in Israel's favor after a year of Palestinian uprisings and the heavy criticism of Israel for war crimes and racism by the United Nations conference in Durban. The timing of these attacks came in the midst of international condemnation of the Israelis because of Israel's death squad assassination of Palestinian politicians and police. The September 11 attacks did not serve the interest of any Arab group - it served the Israeli agenda, and if documented, the revelation of an Israel involvement in those September attacks will not come as a surprise to intelligence experts, because the state of Israel has a long history of covert operations against Western targets from at least as far back as its attacks on the King David Hotel, the USS Liberty, the murder of a Scandinavian UN envoy, as well as espionage against the USA during the Jonathan Pollard case, to list just a few.
It has been reported that the US Defense Department issued a warning to its officials to halt the leak of information on this investigation which it says is happening every day since the attacks.
There is the perception that there was a Mossad connection and that it was perhaps the most covert operation since the existence of modern Israel.
Are reports of Mossad connections sufficiently mentioned by our official mass media? Isn't Israel maneuvering for a full scale war - most probably beginning against the Palestinians, with all that may entail?
There is the report about CNN showing Palestinians allegedly cheering the death and destruction of the 11th of September. Reportedly those scenes were repeatedly shown around the world manufacturing hatred against the "callous" Palestinians - but it's said that in this case, CNN used old footage from back in 1991 showing Palestinians celebrating the invasion of Kuwait! Naw - our mass media wouldn't do anything like that - would they? Just think for a moment about the impact of such images: People are hurt; emotionally fragile, and then this deceptive broadcasting takes place with its high probability of causing waves of anger and rage against Palestinians. It is grossly immoral to telecast deceptive images such as those.
And then there is the school of thought which recalls seeing a series of fast flashes and hearing several explosions at the time of the collapse - this in reaction to observations to the televised images of the September attacks which suggest that explosive devices were used in the collapse of both towers. It's reported that Van Romero, Vice President for research at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology contends that the televised images of the attacks on the World Trade Center suggest that explosive devices caused the collapse of both towers - that the collapse of the buildings appears too methodical to be a chance result of airplanes colliding with the structures. It is his opinion based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center, there were some explosive devices inside the buildings that caused the towers to collapse. Romero said the collapse resembled those of controlled implosions used to demolish old structures. He was quoted as saying that it would be difficult for something from the plane to trigger an event like that. If explosions caused the towers to collapse, the detonations could have been caused by a small amount of explosive placed in strategic points, Romero said. The explosives likely would have been put in more than two points in each of the two towers. Attackers detonate an initial, diversionary explosion that attracts emergency personnel to the scene, then detonate a second explosion.
If that scenario is correct, the diversionary attack was the collision of the planes into the towers. It was also reported that the President of New Mexico Tech had said that Tech had not been asked to take part in the investigation into the attacks although Tech often assists in forensic investigations.
Well, of course the questions also arise as to who had the knowledge, the opportunity and the ability to effectively plant such explosives, and who could have secretly accessed specific parts of those structures - and I say to you that the principal beneficiary of these attacks is the government of Israel.
Another point of view is that we are heading toward a Jihad versus McWorld [as in McDonald's].
As an example of Israeli terrorism supported by the USA, Robert Fisk, the long time Middle East correspondent, reported in August just how Israeli police carry out their routine, organized cruelty. He pointed out that while the Arabs called it a "day of rage", it was the Israelis who were the ones demonstrating their rage outside Orient House, and the Palestinian youth who dared to hold up a Palestinian flag made out of paper, was seized by six border guards and plain-clothes police - the boy was kicked, beaten, punched in his face and back and then kneed in the groin in front of everyone. They don't care. Fisk informs us about a tall, thin young man with shaggy brown hair who tried to escape a policeman's grasp at the iron security barriers who was dragged back into the police lines and then attacked by eight men. There must have been 20 television cameras and a score of photographers running along with the Shin Bet intelligence police as they dragged that boy screaming up the road toward Orient House, kicking him in the chest and forcing back his head until he choked. Then the moment the youth was in the back seat of a white police van, an Israeli plain-clothesman in a red shirt attacked him - and while he was being held down from the other side of the vehicle, the Israeli kicked him again and again between the legs until the young man screamed out in a high-pitched cry. It was, as one of the foreign protesters muttered, enough to turn a Palestinian into a suicide-bomber. Indeed!
And it was also very weird: here we were, reports Fisk - around a hundred journalists watching a hundred so-called "peace" demonstrators Europeans, Americans, Christians, Jews, and Palestinians - and every few minutes, on a signal from a fat policeman in a blue shirt, his colleagues would run amok - after all the talk of Israel being a peace-loving state among the nations, founded upon the rule of law, the Israeli police would suddenly prove that those constant Palestinian complaints of beatings and brutality were absolutely true - right there in front of us, Fisk says. There was a border guard who became so fascinated by the beating of one man that he couldn't take his eyes off the fists that were hammering into the man's stomach and ribs. A lot of the border guards were grinning when the Palestinians screamed - after a while it was obscene to watch. Up the street, closer to Orient House, here's how the Israeli police were taking care of their prisoners: In front of the horrified eyes of a group of humanitarian workers, one of whom was an American, the Israeli police beat the captured Palestinians all over again. Police horses were run into the crowd. A couple of stun grenades were fired into the crowd. After more than an hour of this, one officer realized that this Israeli state terror was a public relations disaster, and he shouted "Stop carrying them!" as two Palestinians were being dragged in front of the cameras as they were being beaten. "Let them walk!" But of course they couldn't walk. They couldn't even stand up.
One of them had his shirt pulled up over his head, and it revealed his back completely red. A thought kept recurring in our minds: If this is what the Israeli police do to Palestinians right there in front of us, asks Fisk, then what do they do to them behind our backs.
As far as the Palestinians and their many supporters are concerned, they see no difference between Israel and America since the US has always been and continues to be Israel's gigantic backer - all the way.
The Jewish controlled mass media tells us that Osama bin Laden and his followers attacked the US because as President Bush put it "America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world" and because "they hate our values" and they "hate what America stands for", and "they have attacked America because we are freedom's home and defender" - well, ladies and gentlemen, that is not merely wrong - it is dead wrong because death must result from that lie.
Mark my words, I predict that if my countrymen believe the President and make all-out war against Islamic fundamentalism, they will only succeed in adding millions more to the millions who already hate America - and some of them will put forth more attacks even worse than those of the eleventh of September.
The underlying cause of the animosity against America is rooted in America's support of Israel. Oh, of course Islamic militants abhor America's terrorism against all those unfortunate folks trying to eke out an existence in such poor places such as Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Afghanistan, etcetera - but make no mistake about it, it's the continual and gigantic American backing of expansionist Israel which is the root cause of the animosity against my country. If America were not Israel's big backer, thousands of those innocent victims of the eleventh of September could still be alive.
Whatever Israel has wanted, Israel has gotten - with the backing of my country.
The way I see it, Israel wants a full-scale war - with the backing of my country, of course.
In closing, ladies and gentlemen, I want you to know that it gives me no pleasure to tell you that I have absolutely no reason to doubt that international Jewry will continue to act as it has throughout its entire history.
Israel gets what it wants.
Israel wants war.
Israel will get war. All the way!
What makes me especially convinced that Israel will get its big war, is because my country supports Israel - all the way.
Is there any hope?
There is always hope - and it is my fervent hope that my countrymen will recognize the error of their ways and change their interventionist behavior to a foreign policy of neutrality in the spirit of my country's founding father and first President, George Washington, who warned and wisely advised my country to adopt a policy of staying out of foreign entanglements.
That is my hope.
I also have a wish.
I wish that our current President George Bush would pay heed to our former President George Washington.
Ladies and gentlemen, I thank you for your kind attention and wish you well.
