Following are excerpts from an interview with the president of the Middle East Center for Studies and Public Relations, Dr. Hisham Jaber, which aired on Al-Manar TV on 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. What happened in Britain, and why Britain of all places?
The perpetrator believes that he carried out an operation in retaliation for the oppression afflicted upon the world's wretched people by Western policies, and especially by the US and Britain. This is what he believes. In addition, I say that the actual perpetrator - the person who actually commits a suicide operation - is not a mercenary, but he may have been tricked into it. So who is the planner? The planner who is behind him is the one who benefits from what happens. We all know that after 9/11 the persecution of Muslims began in the US and Europe, but later subsided to a certain extent. For three or four years, we have been concerned - in the wake of these painful events - about the possibility of some sort of annihilation, or perhaps an unbalanced civil war in Europe and the US between Muslims and non-Muslims, or let's say, the Westerners. It is global Zionism that stands to gain the most from this.
Regardless of the logic of conspiracy, I would like to say something. We read history, and we know that since the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Zionism has forged the New Testament - and by now, 60 million in the US alone have left Christianity to become believers in the Torah. Global Zionism has tried to forge the Holy Koran, and has printed many copies of this forgery. It was discovered that many extremist movements were backed by (global Zionism).
