Egyptian Researcher Zaynab Abd Al-‘Aziz, Iqra TV, May 26, 2005
Abd Al-Aziz: When in January 2001, the World Council of Churches delegated this mission to the US - what did the US do? It fabricated the show of… is it September 9 or 11?
Host: Eleven. Please explain this to me.
Abd Al-Aziz: Yes, of course…
Host: You mean to say that the World Council of Churches delegated the mission of Christianizing of the world to the US.
Abd Al-Aziz: Yes. And how could the US win legitimacy for this without anyone saying that they are perpetrating massacres and waging a Crusader war? It fabricated the 9/11 show. I call it a fabrication because much has been written on this. We are also to blame. Why do we accept a single perspective? Countless books were written, some of which were even translated into Arabic, like Thierry Meyssan's 9/11 – The Big Lie and Pentagate. "Pentagate" like Watergate… He brings documents to prove that the method used in destroying the three (sic) towers was "controlled demolition." This is an architectural engineering theory, which was invented by the Americans. They teach it in their Universities. They make movies and documentaries about it. They incorporated it in movie scenarios and then carried it out in real life. Why do we accept this?
Host: My God, Doctor. This is unbelievable! You're saying that this destruction…
Abd Al-Aziz: ...was a controlled demolition. The building collapsed in its place, without hitting a single building to its left or right. The three towers fell in place.
Host: In the same method they use in movies and plays?
Abd Al-Aziz: Yes, Exactly like that. That is how the US won international legitimacy. You could sense the (9/11) operation was pre-planned because many things were revealed in the days that followed. For example 4,000 Jews caught influenza on that exact day. They set a timer, and all 4,000…
Host: By God, you crack me up! "They all set a timer and got influenza on the same day." So the building was completely empty of Jews.
Abd Al-Aziz: Much has been written about this. 150 Congressmen demanded an inquiry.
Egyptian General (Ret.), Dr. Mahmoud Khalaf, Egyptian Channel 1, May 5, 2005
Khalaf: When a terrorist hijacks a plane or any other vehicle… The terrorist is no general. When this terrorist hijacks a plane, he can crash into any target, and accomplish his goal.
But (on 9/11), there is a precise timeline: The hijacking of the planes and the circling in the air, even though the hijacker had a chance to attack, he didn't.
He waited so that the attacks would be according to the planned order: First the World Trade Center with two airplanes, then a delay, then the Pentagon, and then the fourth target which should have been – according to (the Americans) themselves…
He was waiting for the US president's airplane which was on it's way. That why the American President had to land in the Barksdale air force base in the south of the US. They switched his airplanes.
It was announced that (Vice) President Dick Cheney– this was published in the Washington Post – Cheney had called the secret phone on the American president's, and told him it's an "inside job", that there were traitors within the White House. The president slammed the phone and told his aides: "Air Force 1 is next," and he gave the order to land.
They published these things, not us, and in the Washington Post no less! On September 12th and 13th the press reported this, and the questions were asked.
But all the questions stopped, and nothing was said about this once the American President accused (bin Laden).
Another thing disappeared at the same time. We all know that there were Anthrax letters. At the same time they accomplished the rest of the goals.
The airplanes… The operation that took place on September 11th, had a civilian targets which was the World Trade Center, and a military target, as well as a planned political target. Then came the Anthrax, whose target was the media, the journalists, as well as the Congress.
All these operations were planned Is this a coincidence? On top of everything, it took the White House two months to declare the Anthrax operation an "inside job".
In this case too, we've heard nothing since. It took him two months to say it was an inside job, but the 9/11 operation and all the attacks we've seen – it took him only an hour…. At 19:30 he got to the White House, and at 20:30 he announced it was bin Laden. Does this make any sense? On the basis of what evidence does he declare this after only one hour?
The Pentagon has its own warning system. When the third plane flew to Cleveland, returned and took an angle towards the Pentagon…
The first airplane hit the WTC at 08:45 and the Pentagon was his at 09:35. After fifty minutes... The reason for the delay, as we understand from the generals' planning… They, of course, delayed the plane that was about to hit the Pentagon until the commanders left, because of the plane hitting the tower at 08:45. It was only natural for the Pentagon's emergency command to start operating. This was the reason for the delay.
First of all, this plane approached the Pentagon from the same angle used by military helicopters. This is a secret approaching angle known to pilots and navigators alone. The plane used the same secret angle! In addition, the Pentagon was informed that an airplane is heading its way, 12 minutes in advance, but nobody was warned.
We must recall that the Pentagon operation claimed the lives of 187 American soldiers. The building was not even evacuated, and Rumsfeld was told nothing. He heard the explosion himself and came out asking: "What was that explosion?"
Saudi Women's Rights Activist Suheila Zein Al-'Abedin Hammad, Al-Arabiya TV, April 12, 2005
Interviewer: You believe that global Zionism is behind 9/11?
Suheila Hammad: Yes, I have evidence for this and if you wish, I could present it. In the two books I provided endless evidence of this.
Interviewer: OK, but How do Osama bin Laden and Al-Qa'eda fit into this equation?
Suheila Hammad: Osama bin Laden? How could Osama bin Laden possibly carry out such a huge plot in the world's leading superpower, with its (renowned) intelligence agencies and defense department?
Interviewer: Just to set things straight, do you believe that Osama bin Laden was used by global Zionism or that he had nothing to do with it and his name got mixed up in this by chance?
Suheila Hammad: They got him involved from the beginning. He serves their goals.
Interviewer: You mean he works for them?
Suheila Hammad: Of course, who created Osama bin Laden? wasn't it the US?
Interviewer: (What's your evidence) that Zionism - and not only Al-Qa'eda - were behind 9/11?
Suheila Hammad: It is well known that it was premeditated. If not for the events of 9/11 – would the US have been able to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq and to interfere so bluntly in the affairs of the Arab and Islamic nation? Not only that, but now sanctions may be imposed on Sudan and Darfour.
Interviewer: Do you have tangible evidence, or is this just deductive reasoning?
Suheila Hammad: No, there is endless evidence…
Interviewer: Like what? What evidence do you have that global Zionism, and not bin Laden or Al-Qa'eda, was responsible for 9,11?
Suheila Hammad: Many things. First of all, the event was broadcast live. How was this possible unless they knew about it in advance? How come the first tower was attacked just as George Bush was entering elementary school to lecture? When his country was being attacked, he said: "Oh, what a brilliant pilot." Then he went to lecture.
Interviewer: Bush said, "Oh what a brilliant pilot"?!
Suheila Hammad: Yes.
Interviewer: Where did he say this?
Suheila Hammad: He said so himself. I've heard of the goat story he was reading, but not about "Oh, what a brilliant pilot."
Suheila Hammad: He said so. Read my book, The Events of September, you'll find it.
Interviewer: But where did you get this from?
Suheila Hammad: He said this on a TV interview, brother! Thierry Meyssan has mentioned all these terryifing facts.
Interviewer: Suheila, a moment ago you just said that the filming of 9/11 is one piece of evidence that it was planned by the US…
Suheila Hammad: It was broadcast live to the school in Florida, where George Bush was. It was broadcast live and he saw it with his own eyes.
Interviewer: The first plane was not broadcast live. the footage came later.
Suheila Hammad: He even said in a televised interview: "When I saw the plane I said, oh, what a brilliant pilot." Then he went in to lecture, and then Dick Cheney came in and told him the second tower had been hit – "We are under attack."
Interviewer: Dick Cheney was in another city.
Suheila Hammad: His aide came in and told him that the second tower had been hit. Then (Bush) said, "If so, we are facing a conspiracy." He didn't give an order to monitor these planes are take any measures to follow them. There were talks among the officials at the defense department, and they all said, "We don't know," as if they lived in the jungles of Africa, not in an advanced country.
Interviewer: Another question: Who do you think is behind the terrorism against Saudi Arabia?
Suheila Hammad: Zionism, of course.
Egyptian Professor Abd Al-Sabour Shahin, Saudi Channel 1, August 8, 2005
Shahin: One day, we awoke to the crime of 9/11, which hit the tallest buildings in New York, the Empire State Building (sic). There is no doubt that not a single Arab or Muslim had anything to do with these events. The incident was fabricated as a pretext to attack Islam and Muslims. The plan was to take over the world's energy sources, and to achieve this control by force and not by agreement or negotiations, by interests, free trade, or anything like that. This is what they wanted.
So this incident was fabricated - and Allah knows that the Arabs and Muslims are innocent of it - in order to serve as a pretext to attack Islam and the Muslims.
All of a sudden, after we were used to consider America to be a rational and balanced country... All of a sudden, it violates international conventions, cancels treaties, ignores the U.N., acts on its own accord, attacks nations, kills innocent people, and claims it has the right to do so - and all this is based on lies. These were lies from beginning to end, and we were not used to lying - not in policy, not in our discourse, and not in the media. Imagine what crisis the Arab and Islam nation finds itself in, in the midst of these peculiar events, which we cannot explain or believe. All of a sudden, we were framed for an international crime, on the basis of lies.
I believe a dirty Zionist hand carried out this act. Zionism has taken the opportunity to escalate the war in Palestine, killing hundreds of thousands so far, while we watch from the sidelines in astonishment and ask: What's going on?
Egyptian Author Hassan Al-Bana, Sahar 1 TV, September 11, 2004
Dr. Hasan Al-Bana:
Al-Bana: This is a book written by Benjamin Netanyahu on the uprooting of terrorism. He talks about attacking the Twin Towers, He talks about attacking the US National Security Council, and about attacking the UN. Take, for example, the Twin Towers operation. Such an operation doesn't require placing a car bomb under the two towers but placing small nuclear bombs and detonating them. The scenarios were ready. This scenario was prepared by the Jews at the Jonathan Institute.
Interviewer: What scenario are you talking about?
Dr. Hasan Al-Bana: The scenario of bombing (the WTC). I'm talking now about the bombing scenario and how it was a planned operation, and not an act of revenge. He had to find an excuse; a reason for intervention.
Interviewer: Dr. Hasan, you talk of the perpetrator. Are you saying there was an Israeli plan ready for operation?
Dr/ Hasan Al-Bana: The scenario was prepared by Israel and the US.
Henry Ford and George Bush attended the Jonathan Conference in 1984. They agreed with Netanyahu on the scenario for the bombing of the Twin Towers. When Netanyahu was asked how a force can be mobilized… He said: "In America you have religious factions who oppose abortions in hospitals. This religious sentiment can be exploited and channeled into these kinds of operations." This all exists (in writing). Anybody who read Uprooting Terrorism (sic.) and many other American books (would understand).
Moreover, there is no such thing as a conspiracy. What conspiracy? George Bush Sr. and George Bush Jr. are the only American presidents to control the CIA. George Bush Jr. declared that the Twin Towers operation would remain completely secret.
Ahmad Yousuf, editor-in-chief of the Washington-based Middle East Magazine, Al-Manar TV, December 30, 2004
Yousuf:These events [9/11] were preceded by very detailed planning, conducted by strategists who wove the strands of this plot. Some people were probably recruited, and, as has been pointed out by a certain Western intellectual, Israel excels at espionage within the U.S., and is capable of disguising many operations as Islamic. In other words, Israel is capable of penetrating certain Islamic circles, of directing and running them behind the scenes, so that they will conduct operations from which Israel benefits. Anyone who considers the events of 9/11 cannot say that the Muslims gained anything. There's another dimension, which some people may have noticed. No one could have captured the pictures [of the attacks] so perfectly except for the cameras in the hands of several Mossad agents, who were near the scene of events and succeeded in filming the scene so that it will always serve Zionism to remind the world of the Arabs' and Muslims' crimes against America. These pictures were filmed very expertly so that they would be a constant reminder to America and the Western world that Islamic terrorism is a threat to their culture, their ideals, and their values.
Host: Regardless of who the perpetrators were…
Yousuf: Today, there is much evidence casting doubt on the ability of these Muslims, with their meager means, to carry out such an operation, and there are others… Who profited from this operation more than the Zionist movement? Since the end of the Cold War, Israel has been trying to attain a position that would allow it to direct American policy, because Israel found it impossible to confront the Islamic enterprise and the Islamic resistance. Therefore, it had to drag America into the region. This was the grand scheme – and American right-wing forces may have participated in it, and Evangelical Christians agreed to it. All of them agreed that this scheme should be carried out in this way in order to push America into war.
We are told by many Americans that even Pearl Harbor… In order to bring America into the war… There is much talk about a plot that was hatched to bring about the attack on Pearl Harbor, so that the U.S. could justify entering this war and so that it would be easy to convince the American people to pay the billions of dollars and sacrifice hundreds of thousands of lives – to wage this war, so that some U.S. corporations and individuals will protect their interests, in this war with Japan and Germany.
Anwar ‘Ishqi, director of the Middle East Center for Strategic Studies in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Al-Jazeera TV, February 16, 2005
’Ishqi: The CFR group is the secret government in America. They are the ones who came up with [globalization], and they are headed by David Rockefeller. They control and have hegemony over the world economy. Today's globalization is an outcome of this. Therefore, the agreement or coalition between them and Bin Laden's group developed the planning of Bin Laden's group. The Bin Laden group… it's improbable that someone who strolls in the mountains with a walking stick could plan things like this and upset the entire world and become the rival of the American president.
Muhammad Ali Al-Jozo, the Mufti of Mt. Lebanon, ANB TV, July 24, 2005
Al-Jozo: I cannot give bin Laden credit for the operation in America (9/11). He does not have the capabilities, and his personality in no way suggests that he may carry out an operation like those that occurred in America London, or Madrid. There are Zionist hands...
Host: You are trying to exonerate Al-Qaeda completely, even though it issues communiques and...
Al-Jozo: It issues communiques, but it cannot... I've said... I visited the US several times before this happened (9/11), and even clerics were thoroughly searched. Once I was at the Canadian-American border, going into America. They stopped my car and searched it for two hours. I laughed. They asked me if I had weapons, and I said yes. They asked what weapons, and I said a cannon and a few missiles. I was making fun of them. They searched the car like madmen. With such a meticulous search, and the security checks at the airports are the best, how did this happen?
Mufti Ali Al-Amin: You are exonerating them although they claimed responsibility.
Al-Jozo: That is nonsense. Nonsense. When bin Laden said "some of the good faithful men did this" – It's nonsense. He denied it at first and said he didn't carry out the operation.
Lebanese Researcher Hisham Jaber, Al-Manar TV, July 11, 2005
Jaber: I have some doubts about the September (2001) events - and some articles and books share my opinion. I believe the events of 9/11 were not planned, prepared, or perpetrated by Al-Qaeda alone. Absolutely not. A force greater than Al-Qaeda was behind these events. Whenever an ordinary crime takes place, the question is: "who benefits?" - let alone when the crime is of such huge proportions.
”The New Fascism” – an Iranian TV series
Iranian strategic expert 'Ali 'Askari: We have seen that 9/11 was a domestic need of the American administration as well as an external need. So, the following suspicions grow stronger: Either the Americans were involved in this matter or they let the events of 9/11 develop as they developed.
Iranian political expert Manouchehr Mohammadi: There are many events like these in American history. It has been proven that the Japanese military attack on Pearl Harbor and on the American war ships was planned in advance and implemented with the authorization, support, and encouragement of US President Roosevelt. They needed a pretext such as this to enter WW II and in order to affect public opinion so it would give its consent to enter the war. The exact same thing happened on 9/11. This (tactic) is not used only by Hitler and George Bush. All the influential people and all the arrogant politicians need this pretext in order to carry out their aggression.
[…] Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada, Bahrain's Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Al-Arabiya TV, September 1, 2004
Interviewer:Sheik 'Adel, you met Bin Laden once, later you described him as a good man. Do you still think so? You Met him in '89.
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: Yes.
InterviewerPlease explain the circumstances of the meeting and what is your position on bin Laden now?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada:Yes, I've met him and had wanted to meet him very much.
Interviewer Was he a symbol for you?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada:He was a symbol of the Jihad, at the time.
Interviewer: Is he still a symbol for you?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: There is no doubt that there is a lot of good in him, but I disagree with him on a few issues.
Interviewer A few issues.
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: Yes.
Interviewer: On what issues do you disagree?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: I disagree with him if he… First, I don't accuse him of what the West accuses him of and with no evidence. The truth is that I heard with my own ears what he said. He commended the bombings of 9/11, which I didn't and still don't. I believe these bombings were a mistake. But I didn't hear him confess that he was responsible. I don't accuse him without proof.
Interviewer:So you still believe Al-Qa'ida was not responsible for 9/11?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: Me?
Sheik 'Adel Al-Mu'ada: I have no proof of this. There Is no proof of this. The evidence that exists is like Powell's evidence for the existence of WMD in Iraq.
Lebanese MP Walid Jumblatt, Al-Arabiya TV, March 21, 2004
Jumblatt: I am of the opinion that somewhere, someplace, there is an intelligence agency profiting from Al-Qa'eda and Osama bin Laden. Osama bin Laden is like a ghost, popping up when needed. This is my conviction.
Interviewer: Even 9/11?
Jumblatt: Even 9/11. Since there are many circumstances…Why didn't the sirens go off when the four hijacked planes took off? This happened only after an hour and a half or an hour and twenty minutes. That is peculiar. The largest country in the world, with the largest intelligence budget of $70-80 billion for various agencies, could only put out a warning after an hour and twenty minutes?! A peculiar story.
Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri, Sudan TV, August 27, 2004
Al-Karouri: When September the ninth comes [i.e. 9/11] we will again review the material we handed out about the Jewish thumbprint. Let's say in brief, that whether the 9/9 events and the destruction of the two famous buildings in the US were carried out by Israel's enemies, as the US claims, or by Israeli agents, as we claim, the outcome is the same: the Jews are the cause.
Iraqi Analyst Kazem Al-Qureishi, Sahar 1 TV, July 18, 2004
Al-Qureishi:Al-Zaraqawi, bin-Laden, and Mulla 'Omar, and all the leaders of the Salafi movement are tools created by the British Freemason movement 200 years ago. With these tools they wanted to create a new religion for us, to confront Islam. They filled this new religion with Jewish poison, the Masonic poison. Their religion is manifested by a long beard, a short garment, and killing Muslims.
Host: Do you think that the CIA participated in the events of 9/11, that they attacked the US, killed Americans and humiliated the US in front of the whole world?
Al-Qureishi The explosions of September… It has been three decades since plans to bomb these buildings, the Twins, were made. But they wanted to do it so it would not be in vain. I noticed that the planes hit the upper part of the buildings, but the buildings exploded from the bottom, which proves that they were booby-trapped. Neighboring building also collapsed without being hit by planes. In order to carry out this plan they dragged fools from the Salafi movement and trained them to fly planes, a few years ago. Does bin-Laden have airfields where he can train them, or what…?
Lebanese Cleric Muhammad Kan’an, Al-‘Alam TV, September 9, 2004
Kan’an: I think there is some exaggeration in the American response to the events of 9/11. At the end of last year, I was...
Interviewer: Exaggeration on the part of the regime?
Kan'an: On the part of the media and mostly the American media. I visited New York and asked many people, and even Muslims who live there, what the situation was like after 9/11. They replied: 24 hours of burying the dead, and that was it.
Syrian researcher Al-Tayyeb Tizini, Al-‘Alam TV, August 18, 2004
Tizini: The American order of globalization began to think how to penetrate the world in new ways…
Interviewer: Including the use of force…
Tizini: The answer came on 9/11. I would like to emphasize here…
Tizini: Exactly, according to American and European documents, including the investigation of President Bush and his aides about 9/11, I'd like to say that 9/11 was an American action.
These Americans began to understand that the new order must be marketed by a great event that would create new dangers for the world. 9/11 was for this purpose, in order to emphasize the need of dividing the world in two. This is what this order strives for: The so-called terrorists on one side and the so-called democrats on the other.
Mustafa Shak’a, former dean of humanities, Cairo’s ‘Ein Shams University, Iqra TV, June 16, 2004
Shak'a: To this day, we don't know who attacked the US on September 11. Why is the attack attributed to Bin Laden although it has not been proven that he was involved in the operation? It is way above his capabilities. Those who created him have made him a legend.
The operation was 100% American, and this is not the place to elaborate, but what proves the operation was a Jewish one is that five Jews climbed up a high building and filmed the first attack of the first plane…
Moderator: Before it happened?
Shaka: Yes, before anything was known. They caused a commotion, then the police were called and arrested them and it turned out they were Jews. They were interrogated for a week. This was reported in Records, one of the reliable newspapers in the US. Ha'aretz also reported they were arrested. They were released a week later without their investigation being completed, which angered the US Justice Ministry and the FBI. Their investigation was not completed. Therefore, the attack was an internal American one, but was attributed to Islam from the very first moment.
Iranian TV series about 9/11, Jaam-e Jam 1 TV, June 1, 2004
Narrator: A short while before the blasts of September 11, Mercury, a local Pennsylvanian newspaper, reported that two Jews were arrested while filming the Twin Towers. At that time, Ha'aretz reported the arrest of five Israelis who had photographed the World Trade Center, a few hours before the blasts. Also, an editor in chief of an American newspaper who brought up Israel's involvement in the Twin Towers' affair was fired. Some hours after the Twin Towers were blasted, the FBI had arrested five Israelis who had planned to blow up the New York Bridge in the Manhattan and New Jersey area. Also, the absence of 4,000 Jews (working) in the Twin Towers strengthened the claim that they took a vacation on that day.
A while afterwards, a source in American military intelligence, raised details pertaining to an intelligence memo regarding Israel's espionage organization, the Mossad, and its role in the events of September 11. In fact, the claim that Israel was involved in the blasts of September 11 and used it as a basis of America's new strategy for fighting the world of Islam, disappeared in the media coverage, but world public opinion still believes this possibility.
'Abd Al-Halim 'Uweiss, history professor at Al-Azhar University, Iqra TV, July 26, 2004
'Uweis: Regarding 9/11… The truth is that as a historian, I cannot agree at all with the American view. Many Americans… I read that even one of the candidates for the nomination of the American Democratic Party doubted the events of 9/11.
The conspiracy, with all its briliance, and the manner it was carried out, is beyond what Osama bin Laden or others are capable of planning.
Former Lebanese culture minister Ghazi Al-‘Aridhi, Abu Dhabi TV, July 4, 2004
Al-‘Aridhi There have been doubts about those behind the events of 9/11. With due respect to what Mr. Mahmoud said, but these are not merely ghosts, because the Americans have defined their enemies. They said it was bin Laden, then they said Saddam, later they published lists of organizations they consider to be terrorist.
We must ask once again, who is bin Laden? Who created bin Laden? Who is responsible for bin Laden? When was bin Laden used? For what purpose and against whom? American intelligence and the successive American administrations fabricated bin Laden and used him to confront Soviet influence in Afghanistan.
Iranian TV series about 9/11, Jaam-e Jam 3 TV, June 15, 2004
Narrator: What group or organization was responsible for the events of 9/11? The intellectuals, who support globalization and oppose America's policy, believe that it was the US that created the events of 9/11 in order to expand its hegemony in the world.
The FBI and CIA experts attributed the Events of 9/11 to the Muslims and Al-Qa'ida. Moreover, two months after the events, part of Bin Laden's speech was broadcast by Al-Jazeera, in which he said, "We calculated the number of enemy victims ahead of time, and predicted the number of people to be killed in the towers." Some experts expressed doubts about tape's authenticity and considered it to be the work of the CIA. In light of the wide scope of the operation, which required coordinating four airplanes by at least 20 people, who would engage in combat and carry out a suicide operation, the likelihood that this was an Al-Qa'ida operation is low.
Saudi Cleric S’ad Al-Breik, Saudi Channel 1, August 16, 2004
Al-Breik: We must not inflate (the importance) of Al-Qa'eda, to the point of claiming that it is the main and only perpetrator of this large operation (9/11). I'm not here to defend (Al-Qa'eda), but we must not overstate this matter. And it does not justify It is a mistake to ignore the possibility that the Zionist hands used some people who were planted into one of the stages of this plan, from this issue.
I have read some books that were translated from English into Arabic in which the Americans themselves call 9/11 "The Great Deception" or the "The Great Game," so why do
