9/11 Conspiracy Theories Clips

#249 | 06:26

The following are excerpts from varoius clips on 9/11

Lebanese MP Walid 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 opinion.

Moderator: 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 an intelligence budget of $70-80 billion for various agencies, could only put out a warning after an hour and twenty minutes?! A peculiar story.

Former Dean of Humanities in Cairo's 'Ein Shams University Mustafa 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…

Interviewer: Before it happened?

Shak'a: 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.

Interviewer: 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?

Iraqi political commentator Kazem Al-Qurayshi: 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…?

Hazem Saleh Abu Isma'il an Islamic preacher in the US: Sir, there is a difference between presenting the real issue and presenting the issue fabricated by the media.

Inteviewer: All right!

Abu Isma'il: I am one of those who believe these events were fabricated from the outset as part of the global groundwork for the distortion of Islam's image. I mean this is part of a comprehensive global plan that includes a media aspect. Even before these event took place there was preparation for them…Syrian Researcher Tayyeb Tizini: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.

Saudi Sheik Sa'd 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. 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.

Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Nazir Al-Karouri in a Firday sermon broadcast by Sudan TV:

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.

An Iranian documentary on 9/11:

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 9/11to 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.
