Linking 9/11 Truth to the Israel-Palestine Conflict

palestine-911

I appeared on this week’s edition of the Press TV show Remember Palestine. I used the platform that Press TV graciously provided me with to argue that those of us who want to bring an end to the Israel-Palestine conflict ought to capitalize on the evidence of Israeli involvement in 9/11 rather than neglect the subject because it is deemed by some to be “controversial”.

An Open Letter to Dr. Paul Viminitz: 9/11 Evidence vs. Straw Man Arguments

Viminitz presupposes the veracity of the wholly debunked Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) of 9/11. I suspect not until I challenged him, during the period when I was his student, had he even considered that the OCT could be false.

Our Scandalous Media and the Quest for 9/11 Truth

One of the preoccupations of the Murdoch media empire has been to promote Islamophobia by advancing false and Israeliocentric interpretations of 9/11. A good example of this high-level fraud was put on public display with News Corporation's recent publication of Jonathan Kay's Among the Truthers. Does the Murdoch media empire's central role in promoting the 9/11 Wars help explain News Corporations' policing activities as a center of surveillance on the families of the 9/11 victims?

The Toronto Hearings to coincide with 9/11/11 promise to create an important record of what is known, what is not known, and what remains in the realm of speculation about what did or did happen ten years ago.

Kay is the Comments Pages Editor of one of Canada’s most influential national broadsheet newspapers The National Post and is a fellow at the neoconservative think-tank the ‘Foundation For the Defense of Democracies’ which has been characterized by journalist Jeffrey Blankfort as “[o]ne of the most influential and powerful of the Zionist lobbies which changed its name and sprung into action immediately after 9/11.

Anthony J. Hall: Racism, Cover-Up and Corporate Fraud in the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe

The Fukushima nuclear disaster shows every sign of becoming the most serious industrial accident in history. Thus the failure to properly internationalize the response to this catastrophe is mind boggling. One month after 3/11 a corrupt little company in Japan, TEPCO, is still being left in charge of dealing with an emergency that is quite literally poisoning the planet on a scale that we may not have ever seen before.

Israel’s Fingerprints Are All Over 9/11 (And I’m Not Afraid to Say It!)

Thank you both for your responses. Here’s my two-penneth; I agree that attempting to discuss politics based on ethnic or religious [israel-and-the-clash-of-civilisations] distinctions is usually misguided (although the various groups which constitute the ‘Israel Lobby’ are almost totally motivated by ethnic and religious based ideologies and imperatives). But it gets more tricky when it comes to analyzing the interface between states. I think we do need to recognize that the U.S. and Israel are two different, autonomous, sovereign states whose interests often differ markedly in the Middle East. It is commonly held in international relations theory that states act in their own interests.
