Muslims for 9/11 Truth advisory board for 2010

Muslims for 9/11 Truth, founded by A.K. "Khalil" Dewdney and Kevin Barrett in January 2009 with their "Warning of a Global War on Islam" letter, is pleased to announce its new advisory board for 2010:

photo Enver Masud is the founder of The Wisdom Fund, which the New York Post has called "the main Muslim 'truther' group in America." His articles on national and world affairs have been published in newspapers and magazines in the U.S. and overseas. He is the author of an award-winning book, The War on Islam, and a contributing author of 9/11 and American Empire and Islam: Opposing Viewpoints. He has lectured widely on 9/11. An engineer by profession, he managed research programs, the National Power Grid Study, and the National Electric Reliability Study for the U.S. Department of Energy, and set up and directed the Operations Review Division at the Iowa Commerce Commission. As an engineering management consultant, he has worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the World Bank, in Albania, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Latvia, Pakistan, Russia, and Tanzania. He resides less than a mile from the Pentagon. Join him on Facebook.

A. K. "Khalil" Dewdney, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario. Well-known for his popular "Mathematical Recreations" column, which ran in Scientific American for more than eight years, he is also the author of several books, including The Armchair Universe and The Planiverse: Computer Contact with a Two-Dimensional World. Founder of Scientific Panel Investigating 9/11 (SPINE) and co-founder of Muslims for 9/11 Truth, he is well known in the 9/11 truth-seeking community for his Project Achilles experiments showing that the reported cell phone calls from the allegedly hijacked airliners on 9/11 cannot have been genuine.

Dr. Faiz Khan is a co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and a contributor to 9/11 and American Empire: Christians, Jews, and Muslims Speak Out. He has spoken at various 9/11 truth events including the seminal 2006 Chicago conference.

Dr. Khan is a medical doctor who practices and holds dual board specialization in two of the broadest fields within modern medicine – Emergency and Internal medicine. He is Vice Chairman / Head of Academic Affairs of Emergency Medicine at Nassau University Medical Center, and holds professorships in both specialties. His areas of expertise include diagnostic reasoning and epistemology, critical care, and medical ethics, and he serves as chairman of the medical ethics committee. He has been the recipient of professional leadership and teaching awards.

Dr. Khan is a khateeb (imam of Friday services) and conducted Friday prayers for 7 years at the Al-Farah Mosque in TriBeca, Manhattan. He continues to conduct prayers at the Islamic Center of Long Island and other NY area mosques.

Saad Ali is an activist with We Are Change Chicago. "We Are Change is a citizens based grassroots peace and social justice movement working to reveal the truth behind the events of September 11th, as well as the lies of the government and corporate elite who remain suspect in this crime. In addition, we are here to aid the sick and dying first responders through fundraising and social outreach programs in order to promote awareness of those who suffer from physical, emotional, and psychological traumas they received in the aftermath of 9-11. We also seek to meet other local citizens who are interested in educating the public while engaging in peaceful demonstration about the pertinent issues that are affecting our lives each and every day. Furthermore, We Are Change is a nonpartisan independent media organization comprised of patriot journalists working to hold accountable those engaging in activities that do not represent the wishes of 'We the People' – by asking the hard questions that the controlled mainstream media refuses to do."

Muhammad Abdullah is a Southern California 9/11 truth activist. He is a Marine Corps veteran whose patriotism was deeply offended by the 9/11 inside job, and who decided to do something about it, as suggested by the hadith:

"When any one of you sees anything that is disapproved (of by Allah), let him change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his heart, though that is the weakest (kind of) faith."

Muhammed Abdullah has been conducting street actions on a weekly basis for more than two years. In spring 2009 he became the target of an attempted restraining order by the Pomona Police Department due to his peaceful demonstrations outside the building, which garnered many "thumbs-up" signs from rank-and-file cops. The Department failed to win a restraining order as Abdullah agreed to remain a certain distance away from police headquarters. Then in September 2009, Abdullah's home was raided by an apparent Department of Homeland Security team, who confiscated his computer and harassed him with questions about his political views.

Dr. Kevin Barrett is the co-founder and acting coordinator of Muslims for 9/11 Truth. He is the author of three books including the brand-new Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters, which deconstructs the "war on terror" through Socratic questioning. A Ph.D. Arabist-Islamologist, he has taught languages, literature, humanities, religious studies, and folklore at colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad.

Blacklisted from teaching at the University of Wisconsin since 2006, Dr. Barrett has recently worked as a talk radio host, author, public speaker, and congressional candidate. One of the best-known critics of the War on Terror, Dr. Barrett has appeared on Fox, CNN, PBS, ABC-TV, and Unavision, and has been the subject of op-eds and feature stories in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, and other publications. (Media archive here.) Dr. Barrett hosts two talk radio shows, one on a liberal and the other on a conservative network, and runs the website

Dr. Anab (Bill) Whitehouse, author, The Essence of September 11th

Dr. Anab (Bill) Whitehouse graduated with honors from Harvard University, and completed a Ph.D. program in Educational Theory at the University of Toronto. He became a Muslim and stepped onto the Sufi path at the same time, back in 1973, at the hands of his shaykh, Dr. M. Qadeer Baig. He is the author of many books including The Essence of September 11th.

"I can't think of a better book on the subject of 9/11 than The Essence of September 11th for staying away from the advancement of conspiracy theories while simultaneously putting forth a rigorous analysis of the data involving 9/11. This analysis suggests that none of the official reports on 9/11 have succeeded in answering the essential questions concerning that date." -Tammy Walter

First Muslim in Congress compares 9/11 to Reichstag Fire - then takes it back

Has Keith Ellison sold out to the Zionist lobby? Has he betrayed his Somali-American Muslim base by refusing to support the Somali people in their struggle against the New World Order's Ethopian puppets, who committed the supreme war crime of aggression by invading and occupying Somalia under Zio-American orders?

Whatever the answers to those questions, let us remember that Keith Ellison did do one brave thing in his life -- which he promptly retracted and apologized for:

From the Daily Telegraph's Bush Like Hitler, Says First Muslim in Congress:

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".

Vice-President Dick Cheney's stance of refusing to answer some questions from Congress was "the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship", he added.

Imam Abdul Alim Musa

From the website of the Defamation League, an extremist group dedicated to defaming anyone who speaks the truth about Zionism:

October 5, 2006:
Alim Musa spoke at a protest organized by the antiwar group World Can't Wait outside the White House in Washington, DC. Claiming September 11 was a conspiracy by the American government, Alim Musa stated:

"We got to get rid of this new Hitler. Just like Hitler burned the Reichstag, to gain full power over the people, George Bush brings down the World Trade Center, blames it on us [Muslims] and then claims himself dictator over the world. So we're here to say it's all over for George."

January 2004: In an interview in the San Francisco Bay View, Alim Musa talked about September 11 and other issues. In the interview, Alim Musa stated:

"When 9/11 happened, the only people who understood it really was Black people. They know that when you have an election-stealing president that has no credibility, he needs something to make him presidential.

"If you remember before 9/11, the big conference they held in Durban, South Africa, Black people was attuned to Zionism is racism, we know that as a people. Amerikkka [original spelling] needed something to take them off of the most-hated list, but it never worked."

Flaming father of Islamophobia: Abu Lahab

9/11 unleashed a firestorm of Islamophobia in the USA. That firestorm is now being re-kindled by false-flag friendly fire at Ft. Hood, massive escalation in Af-Pak, the seizure of Iranian-linked shiite mosques, and an impending kangaroo-court prosecution of the demonstrably innocent torture victim Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. All of this seems to be laying the groundwork for a new 9/11-style false-flag operation in which Muslims will once again be framed as patsies.

Those fanning the flames of the war on Islam are the spiritual descendents of Abu Lahab, "Father of Flame," a red-faced rich man who with his wife was the premier persecutor of the Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him.

"In the campaign waged against Muhammad (sas), however, the Quran specifies his uncle Abu Lahab and his uncle's wife as two of his most relentless opponents. They thrust themselves into the lead role among the Makkan elite in their persecution of the Prophet (sas), and they pursued their ill-treatment of him with unnatural zeal. Abu Lahab focused all his energy on tormenting the Prophet (sas), and he directed his family and considerable influence toward this end. Moreover, he took it upon himself to deny the Prophet (sas) the freedom to convey his message publicly; he even tried to physically obstruct the Prophet (sas) from his personal worship of God. Abu Lahab remained for the rest of his life a central figure in the opposition to the Prophet (sas) among Makkah's chief clan of Quraysh. He died as a principle catalyst of the repression conducted against Islam in Arabia that lasted more than twenty years." - Ahmad Zaki Hammad, Father of the Flame: Commentary & Vocabulary Reference of Surat al-Masad

Here is my English interpretation of the Qur'an's Surah 111, Surat al-Masad:

Perish the hands
of Father Flame
and perish he!

Neither wealth
nor earnings
will ease him.

He'll kindle hellfire,
that flame-father!
And his wife
will haul his firewood

With a noose for a necklace!

* * *

This isn't quite as literal as some English interpretations of Surah 111. Literally Abu Lahab means "Father of Flame," a nickname engendered by a deviation from the Arabic system of naming a father after his firstborn son. And in the last line, a literal translation would have Abu Lahab's wife wearing a rough halter of palm-fiber, not a hangman's noose, while the well-known fancy necklace it replaces is left implicit. But I think these slight changes in literal meaning convey the sense of the original less poorly than more literal interpretations. "Around her neck a rope of palm fiber" is distinctly anticlimactic, conveying as it does very little meaning to the uninitiated modern English speaker, whereas "with a noose for a necklace" offers a sharp and succinct image of her disgrace.

Today, the raging, fire-breathing Islamophobes incarnate the spirit of Abu Lahab--the spirit of hellfire. Perish their hands, and may they perish!

The Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) speaks out for 9/11 truth

Millions of us protest when our prophet is insulted by Salman Rushdie, Danish cartoonists, and the Pope. Yet how many of us follow his example by insisting on speaking the truth even if it brings derision, ostracism, economic hardship, and worse? If he were here today, would he not insist on speaking the truth about the false-flag attacks that have launched a global war against his community?

"Whoever of you sees something wrong, let him change it with his hand. If unable to, then let him change it with his tongue. If unable, then with his heart. And that is the weakest degree of faith."

"The best jihad is speaking the truth to an unjust ruler."

"When you see my Community too intimidated by an oppressor to tell him, 'You are a tyrant,' then you may as well say goodbye to them."

In Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (tr: Noah Ha Mim Keller), The Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law p.715. Aman/Dubai, 1991. This series of ahadith is taken from Ghazali's Ihya' `ulum ad-din as abridged by Ibn Qudama Maqdisi from an earlier abridgement by `Abd ar-Rahman ibn Jawzi.

Blackwater false-flag terror killing Pakistan?

Only 3% of Pakistanis think al-Qaeda did 9/11. So why is Pakistan letting Blackwater and US military false-flag terrorists run amok? Can the Pakistani elite be that corrupt? Saad Ali of We Are Change Chicago, just back from Pakistan, describes the premeditated murder of that nation.

"On September 20, 2008 a dump truck filled with explosives detonated in front of the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, killing 54 and wounding 266. The media fed us the usual ‘terrorist attack’ story, like they did on 9/11. But according to a report by Tariq But of the Saudi Gazette, witnesses said that Marines unloaded a US embassy truckload of steel boxes and shifted them inside the Marriott Hotel on Wednesday, three days before the bombing. It was a high-security operation carried out with both the main gates of the hotel closed. Only the US Marines could approach the truck to unload the steel boxes and shift them inside the hotel. Hotel sources said the boxes were not passed through the scanners installed at the entrance of the lobby and were shifted to the fourth and fifth floors of the Marriott."

NY Post: "the main Muslim 'truther' group in America"

This article in the neocon New York Post offers a huge compliment to The Wisdom Fund:

"Yet what docrines did Hasan absorb at the mosque? While he was a communicant, it hosted at least four talks by Enver Masud, the founder of The Wisdom Fund, the main Muslim 'truther' group in America."

This ludicrous attempt to blame Enver Masud and the 9/11 truth movement for the questionable events at Ft. Hood was authored by Steven Schwartz, the radical Zionist, neoconservative intelligence agent who masqueraded as a leftist while working to destroy the left prior to the fall of the Berlin wall, and has since been masquerading as a Muslim while working to destroy Islam.

Schwartz has been a neocon/Mossadnik operative since 1983, when Lawrence Chickering got him a job at the neocon front operation "Institute for Contemporary Studies":

"Then a new hope appeared on his horizon, when Schwartz met someone gullible enough to offer him a job based on his superficial intellectual merits. That person was a Yale graduate, advocate of up-by-their-bootstraps ideology and trust fund beneficiary named A. Lawrence 'Lawrie' Chickering. Chickering headed a Reagan Administration-connected San Francisco-based think tank called the Institute for Contemporary Studies, and the encounter between Schwartz and Chickering was a true meeting of minds.

"Schwartz read some of his wannabe-Surrealist poetry to Chickering, and Chickering offered Schwartz a job as a senior editor at the Institute. Schwartz offered to tell Chickering everything he knew about the Spanish Civil War, and Chickering offered to introduce Schwartz to the leading personalities of the Israel Lobby. For Schwartz, the world had changed, and he had now seen the light; he became a passionate believer in government-assisted free market economic policies. He stopped trying to sell kids in black leather jackets on the virtues of Leon Trotsky and anarcho-syndicalism, and instead wrote editorials demanding increased congressional funding for the Nicaraguan Contras. Chickering even allowed Schwartz to visit the White House and shake hands with Oliver North." - Kevin Keating

Schwartz's well-funded anti-Islam wrecking operation targets unusually effective, accomplished Muslims like Dalia Mogahed and Enver Masud. What is really tragic about this situation is that many well-meaning American Muslims of a pro-Sufism orientation are taken in by Schwartz's pro-Sufism, anti-"Wahabbism" polemic. What they don't realize is that Schwartz is just reciting lines fed to him by his intelligence agency handlers, who craft those lines for maximum impact in splitting the ummah and sowing fitna in the Muslim community.

Letter to Muslim leaders, re: Palestinian Muslim "lone nut" blamed for Ft. Hood shooting

Dear Muslim Leaders and Media Specialists,
As-Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmat Ullaahi wa Barakaatuh.

There comes a time when a conscientious citizen of the world has to admit the existence of radical evil, even in the ranks of his own government, when all the relevant signs emerge.

Such admissions do not come easy. It requires mature faith. Learned Muslims know that Shayton(Satan) participates in human institutions and tries to interfere with even the best intentions of good people. People of good faith seek refuge in God.

In recent history, this problem has reached a boiling point with the emergence of unprecedented FALSE FLAG attacks, implicating Musilms individually and collectively. (For those who don't know, a FALSE FLAG ATTACK is when a government shoots itself in the foot in order to sound an alarm about phony "foreign invaders and infiltrators." Hitler did it with the Reichstag fire, and moved on to establish martial law and dictatorship.)

The Muslim community collectively has failed to mature to the point where this phenomenon is understand in precise terms. The more alert among us create conspiracy theories without hard facts, while being propelled by good intentions. The diplomatic among us seek to distance our community from individual deviants.

This week is a turning point for Muslims in this regard. The Fort Hood attacks could NOT have happened the way that public officials are describing. Something is missing, in fact, many vital points are missing from a would-be realistic portrait. We need to wake up or suffer the backlash. We must come clean and play our role as informed citizens.

Start with motive. The attacks are a public relations, propaganda bonanza for America's military machine: "We have more enemies than we can count in more places than we can account for. Stand tall and march with greater determination." Then, vague "Muslim" figures are increasingly painted in the deepening shadows of doubt and public peril, if not simply via guilt by association.

Next, look at feasibility. Can someone standing on top of a desk firing at random on troops trained-for-street-battles-in-Iraq, can such a person in the span of a minute fire 13 lethal shots with deadly accuracy. Will the would-be victims stand tall like target-dummies and puff up their chests and let their faces shine for the bullets? That's what the media and official sources would lead us to believe.

Let Muslims of every age understand one or two nuances here: The zone of a lethal bullet-shot is very limited in size and can only be successfully targeted in close range bullet-discharges. Someone firing into a crowd will not score well as a marksman, at least not in the span of a minute or two, which is the time-frame here. [The lethal zone in question is basically head, neck and heart.]

Next, note the lack of transparency. There is a near total shutdown of substantive, objective coverage of the actual event. Instead, we are treated to innuendos vis-a-vis the suspects idiosyncratic behavior. "Objective reporting" consists of contradictory leaks, sometimes involving several shooters.

As with the Nine Eleven attacks, the overwhelming majority of relevant evidence may be in the process of being destroyed as we speak. Eye-witness testimonies contradicting the official version of events are being sequestered. One or two "witnesses"(perhaps participants) in the massacre could confirm the offical version. Contrary testimonies may take years to emerge, when it is too late to make a difference. The alleged perpetrator may not be brought to trial because of a managed comatose state if not death itself. Thus the government will not be required to publish details of the event. In the meantime, Muslims locally and globally take the brunt of blame for not controlling, containing, healing or expelling the violent radicals in our midst.

ISNA is right in treating the event as a CRIME. If this had been done with the Nine Eleven Attacks, the real perpetrators would have seen justice long ago. The question is: Will we exhibit straightforward character here, as Muslims should?

Intelligent Muslims leaders must remain calm and collected and demand due process. If the government claims that it cannot publish its sources, or if a reasonable period of time passes without transparency, our leaders should speak out in condemnation of this manipulated propaganda event. Justice postponed is justice denied.

Standing firm in this way, Muslims can be a catalyst for social reform and a dynamic factor in purging government of extremism.

Fort Hood Shooting "Oddities"

ABC News reports: "U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News." Was Hasan set up as the patsy for a false-flag operation designed to shore up flagging public support for the war on Islam?

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad references controlled demolition of World Trade Center

Speaking at the two day "International Conference to Criminalise War: Failure of International Law" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad referenced the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center:

"Dr Mahathir said that the odd thing about 9/11 was that all 3 buildings collapsed rapidly straight down, as if they had explosives already inserted in certain places, and not from the effect of the aircraft hitting them, but due to a demolition method. He wondered why the 3rd building collapsed in the same way (WTC7) although it was not hit by any aircraft. The collapse of this building had been admitted by its jewish owner, as a controlled demolition when he said 'we pulled it.'

"Michel Chussodovsky confirmed this, and that in a bitter irony both the CNN and the BBC had announced the collapse of WTC7 20 minutes before they actually collapsed. While the BBC reporter was saying this being filmed in front of WTC7, showed the building still up, and he wondered how any one could have known this without foreknowledge.

"Dr Mahathir said that obviously there have been a lot of lies behind these wars..."

-Mathaba (Malaysian newspaper) 10/29/2009

Osama Bin Laden (before he died in 12/2001): I didn't do it!

Osama Bin Laden "repeatedly - on September 12, 16, 17, and 28 (2001) - stated that he had had nothing to do with the attacks. In the September 28 statement, he had even declared:

"I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle. . . . [W]e are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed."

Dr. al-Alwani's brave and prescient statement shortly after 9/11

"...Ten days after the 9/11 attacks...Dr. Alwani blamed the tragedy on a joint American-Israeli intelligence operation, calling it 'the merger between two security theories, the Israeli and the American.'" (Islamophobic source: )

Taha Jabir Alalwani, Ph.D., President of Cordoba University, occupies the Imam Al-Shafi'i Chair in Islamic Legal Theory at The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences, as an internationally-known scholar in his field. Dr. Alalwani shares his mastery of the field of Islamic Legal Theory and considerations related to Muslims in the modern world with his students.
He was the Chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America, and the President of the International Institute of Islamic Thought in Herndon, Virginia. He taught Islamic legal theory for more than ten years at various universities in the Muslim world before emigrating to the United States. Particularly interested in the social implications of Islamic law, he is a major participant in the activities of Muslim social scientists, publishing works such as his Ethics of Disagreement and The Rights of the Accused in Islam and a participant in The Association of Muslim Social Scientist conferences and seminars.
Since coming to the United States in 1984, Dr. Alalwani has been a regular contributor to the American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences and a keen observer of intellectual trends throughout the Muslim world.

Moeen Yaseen Speaks out for Peace and Truth

"This warfare economy is a parasite which manipulates fears and paranoia; it trashes economies by diverting resources from domestic investment into productive uses such as green technologies and subverts university research massively. It reduces economic growth and employment. Indeed the 9/11 attacks on the US homeland were used as a Cassus Belli and for the establishment of a National Security State. The Global War on Terror manipulates fears; keeps us afraid and stops dissent. As far as 9/11 is concerned our thinktank rejects the official narrative as Alice in Wonderland mythology and supports the notion of the existence of the phenomenon of State sponsored false flag terrorism."

Moeen Yaseen: "UN International Day Of Peace: Disarm Now"

"Moeen Yaseen, the convenor and Managing Director of Global Vision 2000 is a leading independent Muslim visionary and catalyst with a track record of 20 years experience in Islamic thought and action in the UK."

Enver Masud reviews 9/11 Commission counsel's confession of "a false version of events"

BOOK REVIEW: 'The Ground Truth: The Untold Story of America Under Attack on 9/11'
reviewed by Enver Masud, author of 9/11 Unveiled and The War on Islam, contributor to 9/11 and American Empire v.2: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out.

The Ground Truth: The Untold Story of America Under Attack on 9/11, by John Farmer — senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission, claims that the government presented a “fundamentally false version of events”.

If this leads some to believe that Mr. Farmer will present the true version of events, they will be disappointed.

What the book does is expose the shortcomings of the government’s response to the hijackings on 9/11. Mr. Farmer does not question the identity of the hijackers although several were later reported by British newspapers as being alive.

He accepts the official version that 9/11 was directed by Osama Bin Laden although Bin Laden himself denied that to a Pakistani newspaper.

The FBI says they have no hard evidence against Bin Laden. They do not even mention 9/11 in their "Most Wanted Terrorists" poster of Bin Laden!

Mr. Farmer’s book basically describes how the hijackers were able to penetrate multiple layers of U.S. security: National Security Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, FBI, the State Department’s visa offices, and airline screening.

His book may be useful to those wishing to “reinvent government.” Until that is done, says Farmer, the passage of new statutes, or the creation of new procedures, or the creation of the Department of Homeland Security leaves the U.S. vulnerable to “terrorist” attacks.

Mr. Farmer does not address the mounting evidence that the twin towers and Building 7 of the World Trade Center were demolished with explosives. He does seem to admit that United Airlines Flight 93 may have been shot down, but he makes no reference to the lack of hard evidence that American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon.

Indeed his failure to address the evidence is particularly striking where he refers to the phone calls made by the passengers and crew of Flight 93 and Flight 77.

The claim that Flight 77 passenger Barbara Olson called her husband, Justice Department's Solicitor General Ted Olson, twice, was contradicted at the Zacarias Moussaoui trial in 2006.

The FBI reported that only two cell phone calls were made from all four planes — both from United Flight 93.

Mr. Farmer has done the 9/11 truth movement a favor. By revealing the government's conspiracy to lie about its response to 9/11, Mr. Farmer casts serious doubt on ALL the findings of the 9/11 Commission.

Muslim Marine Vet Truther Targeted in Massive DHS Raid

by Kevin Barrett,

Muhammed Abdullah, a Pomona, California Marine corps veteran and 9/11 truth activist, was raided on September 24th by a team of apparent Department of Homeland Security-coordinated agents.

Abdullah described the DHS assault: "At 7 o'clock on the 24th I was in my living room when I noticed a bunch of people outside in black uniforms shuffle by. Then I heard a loud bang at the door: 'Police, open up!' I opened the door and saw all these guys in black uniforms with a battering ram. 'Are you Muhammed Abdullah?' I said yes. 'Is anyone else in the house?' 'Yes, my wife and children.' 'Come outside, please."

The ten to fifteen black-uniformed individuals handcuffed Abdullah and took him outdoors without giving him a chance to get dressed (he was in his underwear). They showed him a search warrant that included allegations of welfare fraud against someone with a completely different Social Security number than Abdullah's.

The black-uniformed individuals then forced Abdullah's wife to exit the house. They told Abdullah's wife that her husband was a felon with a New York armed robbery conviction. In fact, Abdullah has no criminal record and has never been to New York.

The government agents began questioning Abdullah and his wife about their difficult economic situation. Since Abdullah was fired from his security job with Union Pacific due to his 9/11 activism, his wife has been working to make ends meet, but they recently fell behind on the rent. The agents asked Abdullah's wife "what do you think about his (Abdullah's) youtube video? What do the kids think about it?"

The agents asked Abdullah whether he had heard of Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki. Abdullah said that he had, since Shaykh al-Awlaki used to be an imam in San Diego until he was banned from the USA for political reasons. They asked what he thought of the Shaykh. Abdullah said that as best he could tell, Shaykh al-Awlaki "comes from Qur'an and Sunnah."

The agents asked Abdullah his opinion about jihad, and about Shaykh al-Awlaki's article "44 ways of supporting jihad." Abdullah said that he thought everybody had the right to self-defense. He quoted a saying of the Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him: "Whoever amongst you sees anything objectionable, let him change it with his hand, if he is not able, then with his tongue, and if he is not even able to do so, then with his heart, and the latter is the weakest form of faith."

According to Abdullah, "They (the agents) were trying to entrap and entice me. They asked things like, 'how far would you be willing to go? If you knew your wife and children would be taken care of, would you do this and this" (i.e. commit a terrorist attack).

Abdullah turned the conversation to 9/11. He explained to the agents what false-flag attacks are, how they are set up to involve patsies and useful idiots, and how many terrorist attacks blamed on Muslims are not what they seem.

Before the team of officers left, they took Abdullah's computers, CDs, cassettes, and bank statements.

The raid, which involved between ten and fifteen officers including an apparent FBI agent and someone from the Pomona DA's office, appears to be another unconsitutional effort to infringe on Muhammed Abdullah's First Amendment rights. The Pomona Police Department had filed for a restraining order last spring to force Abdullah to stop distributing 9/11 truth literature on the sidewalk in front of the police station, where he was getting many thumbs-ups from cops. The judge refused to issue a restraining order after Abdullah agreed to keep a certain distance away from the Police Department. Abdullah speculates that someone in the Pomona Police Department or DA's office may be unhappy about their failure to win a restraining order, and that this might have something to do with the raid on his house.

Abdullah, who was fired from his job due to his off-the-job 9/11 activism, is pursuing a case against his former employer, Union Pacific.

Yahoo News: "Ahmadinejad 1, Couric 0"

[Editor's note: Why do mainstream interviewers, in their attempts to discredit Ahmadinejad, always fail to ask him about his support for 9/11 truth?]

Ahmadinejad 1, Couric 0

Last week, Katie Couric had the tables turned on her. During an interview with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Couric asked about Neda Soltan, the Iranian female who was shot and killed by Iranian security back in June.

After expressing his regret for the loss of life, Mr. Ahmadinejad pulled out a photo of another woman. He showed it to Ms. Couric and asked if she knew who the woman was. Couric said she didn't, and that's when Ahmadinejad pounced.

Ahmadinejad explained that the woman in the photo is Marwa Ali El-Sherbini. She was stabbed to death in a German court by a neo-Nazi. The Iranian president then asked why the death of Ms. El-Sherbini wasn't being publicized by the media in the same way as Neda's. Ahmadinejad "suggested that the western media — who turned Neda into a martyr — ignored Marwa's story."

The interview between Couric and Ahmadinejad took place last week, but the searches really started to pop this morning. Web lookups on "marwa ali el sherbini" and "who is marwa ali el sherbini" both spiked into the thousands... (Complete story here.)

Qaddafi, Ahmedinejad Electrify U.N.

Qaddafi says Israeli Mossad was behind JFK assassination

Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, in his extemporaneous remarks before the General Assembly on September 23 said that Lee Harvey Oswald assassin Jack Ruby (aka Jacob Rubinstein) was an Israeli intelligence agent who was involved on the behalf of Israel to assassinate President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Qaddafi claimed that Kennedy was prepared to expose Israel's nuclear weapons development facility at Dimona in the Negev Desert and Israel ordered Kennedy's assassination.

Qaddafi's remarks in a one and a half hour-long speech are the talk of the hallways, cafeterias, and smoking areas at UN headquarters. Qaddafi's speech has outweighed President Obama's maiden speech on the delegates' interest meters.

Those who were hoping for [9/11 truth supporter] Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to engage in polemics over "Holocaust denial" were sorely disappointed. In his remarks, punctuated with Islamic religious references, Ahmadinejad had a message for the United States and its allies vis a vis the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan: "It is no longer possible to bring a country under military occupation in the name of fight against terrorism and drug trafficking while the production of illicit drugs has multiplied, terrorism has widened its dimensions and has tightened its grips, thousands of innocent people have been killed, injured or displaced, infrastructures have been destroyed and regional security has been seriously jeopardized; and those who have created the current disastrous situation continue to blame others. How you can talk about friendship and solidarity with other nations while you expand your military bases in different parts of the world including in Latin America. This situation cannot continue. It is all the more impossible to advance expansionistic and inhuman policies on the basis of militaristic logic."

Ahmadinejad added, "By the grace of God, Marxism is gone. It is now history. The expansionist Capitalism will certainly have the same fate." Ahmadinejad's remarks came just before the G20 industrial countries' leaders meet in Pittsburgh.

To repeat from UN headquarters, while Obama's speech was received well by most of the delegates and media, it is Qaddafi who is the star of this show. As one Iraqi reporter told this editor, "it's the first time the UN heard a speech from a leader who didn't feed them bullshit but the unvarnished truth."

Arabic Edition of 9/11 Truth Interfaith Dialogue Book Published; Five Muslim Voices Speak Out

The Arabic edition of 9/11 and American Empire: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out has been published in hardcover by Nahdet Misr, an Egyptian publisher. The editors of the original English volume, published by Interlink, included Islamic Studies scholar and 9/11 truth activist-author Kevin Barrett, the eminent Christian theologian John Cobb, and Jewish Studies professor Sandra Lubarsky. Contributors included such distinguished religious studies scholars and intellectuals as David Ray Griffin (the book's inspiration), Marc Ellis, Rosemary Reuther, and Rabbi Michael Lerner. The Muslim contributors include Kevin Barrett, Nafeez Ahmed, Faiz Khan, Enver Masud, and Yasmin Ahmed.

Book description from the publisher:

Inspired by David Ray Griffin's internationally acclaimed book The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11, this anthology presents a variety of perspectives on 9/11 and empire from authors who identify with one of the major Abrahamic traditions. Co-edited by a major Christian theologian (John Cobb), a Jewish scholar (Sandra Lubarsky), and a Muslim scholar (Kevin Barrett), the book features essays by 9/11 revisionists and activists alongside those of noted writers and scholars, including several of the leading religious intellectuals of our time. The writers offer reflections on 9/11 and empire informed by the moral principles of their religious traditions as well as by the obligation to engage in thoughtful dialogue with those of other traditions. While the question of of the Bush administration's and Us military and intelligence leaders' possible complicity in 9/11- and the moral implications of facing that possibility-is at the forefront of the book's agenda, it also addresses the way 9/11 has been used to expand the US empire's "global domination project"-raising profound moral questions that confront all of us, whatever our views on 9/11 complicity and whatever our faith, worldview, or national/ethnic identification.

Poll: 60% of American Muslims Reject Official "19 Arabs" Conspiracy Theory

A Pew scientific poll has found that Muslims in the U.S. are moderate, educated, middle-class, mainstream people...who overwhelmingly reject the Bush Administration's official conspiracy theory of 9/11:

"Relatively few Muslim Americans believe the U.S.-led war on terror is a sincere effort to reduce terrorism, and many doubt that Arabs were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Just 40% of Muslim Americans say groups of Arabs carried out those attacks."

Dr. Naseem's Call for Truth Featured in London Daily Mail

Conspiracy fever: As rumours swell that the government staged 7/7, victims' relatives call for a proper inquiry

London Daily Mail, 03rd July 2009 (full article here)

"As Dr Mohammad Naseem, the chairman of Birmingham's Central Mosque, says in the BBC2 documentary: 'We do not accept the government version of July 7, 2005. The Ripple Effect video is more convincing than the official statements.' Mr Naseem, a well-educated man, had made 2,000 copies of Ripple Effect for members of his mosque. Research has revealed that even before the contentious video came out, one in four British Muslims thought the Government or the Secret Services were responsible for the 7/7 atrocities. Now the number of doubters is growing. At Friday prayers recently, Dr Naseem asked the congregation to raise their hands if they did not accept the government version of events. Nearly the entire gathering of 150 men and boys did so. He then urged his audience to collect free copies of Ripple Effect at the back of the mosque."

Compromise Reached In Restraining Order Case Against USMV Vet 9/11 Truther

By Martin Hill

Compromise Reached In Restraining Order Case Against USMV Vet 9/11 Truther
By Martin Hill

"Do you believe that Muslims were responsible for the attacks on September 11th, 2001?" Mohammed Abdullah asked the Pomona Police Department employee as she sat on the witness stand.

"Irrelevent- completely irrelevant to this case", the judge admonished Abdullah, who for the second time had tried to ask a witness their beliefs about 9/11 during cross-examination. The women had filed a request for a restraining order against Abdullah, which was their reason for being in court. Unable to continue with that line of questioning, the witnesses' beliefs about Muslims, 9/11 and the Iraq war were never discovered.

Their views and beliefs about these things, which undoubtedly played a part in their perceptions and alleged fear of Abdullah, seemed indeed very relevent to the U.S. Marine veteran, who was dressed in Muslim attire.

Muhammed Abdullah had his hearing June 26, 2009 in Pomonr Superior Court. The Pomona City Attorney had filed a restraining order barring Abdullah from coming in contact with any one of hundreds of Pomona Police and City employees. This was done at the request of some employees of the Pomona Police Dept. who alleged that Abdullah's comments about 9/11 and war crimes against Iraqi women by U.S. soldiers 'scared them'. If the restraining order had been granted, Abdullah, a USMV Vet and convert to islam, would have been barred from owning guns. Abdullah had been standing outside the Pomona Police Dept. for several months with a sign and dvds alleging that 9/11 was an "inside job" orchestrated by criminal elements within the U.S. government. When he started talking about war crimes and the torture rape of Iraqi Muslim women and children, apparently, according to the temporary restraining order, he had gone too far.

David King, Deputy City Attorney for Pomona, attended the hearing on behalf of the city. King acknowledged to the presiding judge Steven D. Blades that "the defendant has not expressed threats", but referencing regarding Abdullah's behavior, insisted "does that constitute harassment? yes your honor". King also referenced CA Penal Code 527.6 , which outlines outlines harassment involving 'credible threats of violence'.
Seemingly addressing the broader issue of free speech, Judge Blades at the start of the hearing asked King "what if someone held a sign, F--- the police. does that constitute harassment?"

"Probably not", King replied.
King went on to argue that Abdullah was standing "where he was seen by people driving by" .. "The Police dept. asked him to move".. "they felt that the defendant had crossed the line" (referenced 527.6) .."they don't know what he's going to do", he was "directing his comments directly to employees", adding "we respect his beliefs, opinions, and views".. we are "asking for a buffer zone".

Abdullah responded "I never forced or impeded anyone. they were within earshot".
The judge had previously tried to get the two sides to come to a compromise, but one could not be reached because Abdullah insisted he did nothing wrong and did not want any sort of restraining order on his record, which might impede his ability to work as an armed guard. The initial restraining order had also prohibited Abdullah from coming in contact with City Hall and any city employees, despite the fact there were no complaints filed from city employees. Judge Blades once again tried to get the two parties to come to an agreement. The parties discussed limiting Abdullah's proximity to the Police employee parking lot.

King conceded "we believe he has the right to an audience at the police dept.", but "he might yell out the window" (when driving by). "I'm just thinking this out as an act of retaliation he might go to city hall." Judge Blades responded, "the inclusion of city hall (in the restraining order) is a prophylactic - seeks to regulate his speech."

Three of the seven witnesses who had filed declarations seeking the restraining order were then called. Witness one was a senior 9/11 dispatcher and trainer, who claimed she understood the "potential for violence in people, how can you tell when people are getting ready to 'do something' 'irrational'". When cross examined by Abdullah, who represented himself, the witness answered his questions about the boxcutter he had held in his street presentation.
"I try to tune you out to be honest with you, but I remember specifically you had a boxcutter". She went on to relay how she had seen Muhammed for "4-5 months", "then he starts talking about "sex crimes. It made me fearful, if he's gonna try to make me understand what the Iraqi women suffered; talking about sex crimes is not Ok to me. and it made me fearful".

Witness 2 was a young woman who had been a dispatcher for 6 months, and was trained at the department by witness number one. "Well your voice is very projective", she relayed to Abdullah on cross examination. Referring to the first day she had heard him refer to Iraqi war crimes and the rape of Iraq civilian women and children, the witness exclaimed, "Your voice actually followed me that day" I remember specifically how I felt that day. I was wearing a skirt. I wanted to cover up this much of my leg that I was showing I wanted to curl up and run inside the police department."

This writer could not help but notice that those emotions seem to be a damning reaction to U.S. foreign policy and criminal elements within the armed services, rather than an admonishion to Abdullah himself.

The third witness was a woman who had been a "community services officer" for 6 years. "Oh, you've never said that before", she replied on cross examination regarding Abdullah's mention of sexual war crimes committed by U.S. Soldiers. Questioned about the unopened boxcutter, which Abdullah had held inside it's packaging to illustrate a point about 9/11, the witness said "I was concerned because I'd never heard you mention a weapon.. until I heard from the other dispatcher did it heighten my fears" Asked if she remembered the words he had said, she replied "could you believe that a boxcutter caused that damage?"
Your voice is very loud and booming. You were directing them (comments) toward me."
'How does that make you feel?', Abdullah asked.

"I know it takes 2 seconds to hurt someone with a boxcutter", she replied.
In a shocking reference to what represents the general public's shocking lack of knowledge about the OKC bombings, the witness then referred to "my knowledge of incidents at Oklahoma City" and how "no one was able to do anything about it because of first ammendment rights". [Note: See numerous links and evidence of government involvement in OKC below.]

Towards the conclusion of the hearing, Judge Blades commented "Whether you or I agree" (that Muhammed was a threat,) "they (the women who testified) seem genuinely concerned.. I'm dealing with their reaction". "I'm balancing everyone's rights"

The judge once again suggested the two parties come to an agreement which would not be a 'restraining order', but rather an agreement prohibiting Abdullah from standing on the specific south corners of Park Ave. and Mission Blvd, near the Police Employee parking lot. He is allowed to stand on the NorthEast and Northwest corners of park and Mission, which are across the street from the Police Dept. If they could not reach that agreemnent, "based on what I've heard I'd grant that Restraining order". Responding to City Attorney King's objections that the agreement should prohibit Abdullah from even seeing Police Employees, Judge Blades responded "he can see them walking, but so what. it's a couple hundred feet away." Referring to the city attorney's attempt to include all city employees and city hall in the agreement, the judge also removed them from the agreement entirely, stating "I think it's overbroad to extend this". Judge Blades also stated that he believed Abdullah exhibited a "course of conduct that constitutes harrassment".

King then told the judge he was concerned that this would be "just an agreement" with "no enforcement mechanism". "That's true at least for the first time" Blades replied, specifying that if Abdullah broke the conditional agreement, the city attorney could file another restraining order, which he would be more likely to issue.

Regarding political expression in this case, Blades continued "waving a boxcutter does cause some people to be concerned. You don't have a restraining order on your record. it's a one free shot so to speak. You can still make your message, just temper it a bit. "Call it a stipulation. TRO still in effect till I get the stipulation. (next week)".

Toward the end of the hearing, Abdullah asked judge Blades if he had watched the two 9/11 dvd documentaries that he had presented as evidence. The judge replied that he had not watched them because, as he put it, they were irrelevent, and that a person's views on that topic were not important to the case itself. Abdullah then asked for the dvd's back, so that he could "give them to someone else to watch."

Concluding the hearing with a statement that seemed ironic given the outcome, Blades assured Abdullah, "you have a right to say things that are offensive to people".

To the supporters, who came from as far as Los Angeles, Orange County and San Bernardino, Abdullah said, "I thank everybody for taking their time, for their support and for witnessing the proceeedings- it's greatly appreciated. I believe your presence had an impact; and hopefully everybody benfitted in their own way from observing."

Regarding the case in general, Abdullah said, "I'm very passionate about these issues- sometimes people mistake passion for anger or aggression". Using the example of a fundraiser car wash in comparison, Abdullah explained "If someone standing on the corner is having a car wash and wants customers, he's not gonna say it with a meloncholy or monotone voice, he's gonna put some passion into it. People are so brain dead nowdays, it's all about work, pay bills, work, pay bills. People dont have a passion unless it's football or basketball. But things that really screw up our world? It's like 'yeah I heard about that'. That's what I was trying to convey to the court. I was not trying to intimidate, harrass or scare anyone."

In closing, Abdullah opines, "We wouldn't even be in court if it wasn't for the fact that the government engineered and orchestrated 9/11. The truth is the best defense".

Some of the attendees who witnessed the hearing had the following comments to add.
Laura said:

Here are a few thoughts.
The women were clearly coached; their testimonies were all very consistent - no opinions whatsoever about the political content of MA' words (not likely) - their concerns about his behavior were not a long endured annoyance but rather a noted escalation exhibited on one particular day The judge skipped over the issue of perjured statements in the complaint - those portions of the complaint that were not testified to today (i.e. stalking, following to their cars, ...) Other than that, I think the judge has been very fair; I was impressed that he would not give the city attorney any more territory than was specifically related to the complaint.
Linda said:
"This was my first attendance for any event related to WACLA. I think it is important to show support, even to complete strangers. When we lose that dedication to and for humanity, WE ALL SUFFER! Self preservation mean that I must care as much for you as I do for myself. That will always involve sacrifice, speaking out on someone's behalf, showing up for support when someone is being hurt by the 'establishment' or society's ignorance in general. I just think of the moral obligation to HUMANITY. One thing that did strike me as being needed is a full and complete understanding of the 'rule of law', the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and all of it's Amendments. I have a real simple rule that I think is reasonable...My freedoms possibly end when and if you feel you are being violated ACCORDING TO THE LAWS IN PLACE. In our passion to get our message out to others...let us always approach that FREEDOM with the utmost respect for others and their right not to listen. Thanks!!"

Muslim Marine Vet Truther in Court Tomorrow

Pomona Police Vs U.S. Marine Vet 9/11 Truther, ... Friday June 26th 2009 9AM (scroll down here at m911t for more information about this case)

Mohammed Abdullah's Court Date is This Friday June 26th at 9AM.
Pomona Superior Court
400 Civic Center Plaza
Pomona, CA 91766

"Third Floor - Department G (Check the Docket)"

Mohammed Abdullah had a court hearing on 6-12-09 to respond to allegations levied by the Pomona City Attorney in their attempt to file a restraining order on behalf of the Pomona Police dept. The complaint claims that some employees of the Police Dept. and city became afraid of Abdullah, who had been standing outside the department with signs and dvds contending that 9/11 was an "inside job", as well as protesting the rape and tortue of Iraqi Muslims by U.S. soldiers. The city had failed to provide copies of the complaints despite numerous requests, so on 6-12-09 Abdullah had asked for a continuance. During the hearing the judge stated that "there are constitutional issues here", referring to Abdullah's right to free speech, and encouraged the city attorney and Abdullah to come to some sort of compromise.

No agreement has been reached, so Abdullah is fighting these charges as originally planned. The original restraining order demanded that Abdullah surrender any firearms he owns. Abdullah, who works as a security officer, says that relinquishing his right to bear arms as a result of his political activism is not only unfair and completely unjustified, but will impede his ability to work as an armed guard and possibly prevent him from finding employment. He continues to maintain, as he always has, that he never did anything wrong, and that he never "stalked' "followed" or "harassed" anyone. Abdullah says that although his speech and presentation may be passionate and theatrical, it is his God given right to do so, and he considers it his moral obligation to expose the government lies and corruption. He will fight these charges to the end and deserves your support. Court is Friday 6-26-09 at 9AM.

Top Pakistani General on 9/26/01: 9/11 Was an Inside Job

United Press International September 26, 2001

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan -- The retired Pakistani general who is closest to the Taliban and Osama bin Laden contends the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington were the work of renegade U.S. Air Force elements working with the Israelis. Gen. Hameed Gul led Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence during the war against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Gul serves as an adviser to Pakistan's extremist religious political parties, which oppose their government's decision to support the United States in any action against Afghanistan's Taliban regime.

Gul contends bin Laden had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, saying instead that they were the work of the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service -- a version of events that has been endorsed by Islamic fundamentalist clerics and is widely accepted by Muslims throughout the Arab world.

Here is the transcript of the exclusive interview Gul gave to Arnaud de Borchgrave, United Press International editor at large:

De Borchgrave: So who did Black Sept. 11?

Gul: Mossad and its accomplices. The U.S. spends $40 billion a year on its 11 intelligence agencies. That's $400 billion in 10 years. Yet the Bush Administration says it was taken by surprise. I don't believe it. Within 10 minutes of the second twin tower being hit in the World Trade Center CNN said Osama bin Laden had done it.

That was a planned piece of disinformation by the real perpetrators. It created an instant mindset and put public opinion into a trance, which prevented even intelligent people from thinking for themselves.

Q: So you're already convinced bin Laden didn't do it?

A: I know bin Laden and his associates. I've been with them here, in Europe and the Middle East. They are graduates of the best universities and are highly intelligent with impressive degrees and speak impeccable English. These are people who have rediscovered fundamental Islamic values. Many come from the Gulf countries where ruling royal families have generated hatred by the way they flout divine law, wasting billions on gratifying their whims, jetting around in large private jets by themselves, and sailing the Mediterranean in big private boats for weeks on end. Osama's best recruits come from feudal areas that are U.S. protectorates and where millions of poor people are seeking human dignity.

I have even visited a Christian convent school in Murree, 60 miles from here, where my 13-year-old daughter is studying. The young girls there have told me Osama is their hero. Osama's followers identify with Mujahideen freedom fighters wherever they are defending Islam and its values.

Q: So what makes you think Osama wasn't behind Sept. 11?

A: From a cave inside a mountain or a peasant's hovel? Let's be serious. Osama inspires countless millions by standing up for Islam against American and Israeli imperialism. He doesn't have the means for such a sophisticated operation.

Q: Why Mossad?

A: Mossad and its American associates are the obvious culprits. Who benefits from the crime? The attacks against the twin towers started at 8:45 a.m. and four flights are diverted from their assigned air space and no air traffic controller sounds the alarm. And no Air Force jets scramble until 10 a.m. That also smacks of a small scale Air Force rebellion, a coup against the Pentagon perhaps?

Radars are jammed, transponders fail. No IFF -- friend or foe identification -- challenge. In Pakistan, if there is no response to IFF, jets are instantly scrambled and the aircraft is shot down with no further questions asked. This was clearly an inside job. Bush was afraid and rushed to the shelter of a nuclear bunker. He clearly feared a nuclear situation. Who could that have been? Will that also be hushed up in the investigation, like the Warren report after the Kennedy assassination?

Q: At this point, someone might be asking what you've been smoking. What is Israel's interest in such a monstrous plot, which, of course, no one believes except Islamist extremists who concocted this piece of disinformation in the first place, presumably to detract from the real culprits?

A: Jews never agreed to Bush 41 (George H.W. Bush, the 41st
president) or 43 (his son George W. Bush, the 43rd president). They made sure Bush senior didn't get a second term. His land-for-peace pressure in Palestine didn't suit Israel. They were also against the young Bush because he was considered too close to oil interests and the Gulf countries.

Bush senior and Jim Baker had raised $150 million for Bush junior, much of it from Mideast sources or their American go-betweens. Bush 41 and Baker, as private citizens, had also facilitated the new strategic relationship between Saudi Arabia and Iran. I have this from sources in both countries. So clearly the prospect of a Bush 43 was a potential danger to Israel.

Jews were stunned by the way Bush stole the election in Florida. They had put big money on Al Gore. Israel has given its imperialist guardian parent opportunities to turn disaster into a pretext for imposing an all-encompassing military, political and economic agenda to further the cause of global capitalism. While Colin Powell is cautious and others are reckless and want to make up for their failure to defeat Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War 10 years ago, the global agenda is the same.

Israel knows it has a short shelf-life before it is overwhelmed by demographics. It is a state that was born in terrorism that terrorized Palestinians into the exile of refugee camps, where they have now subsisted in squalid refugee camps, and is now very much afraid of Pakistan's nuclear capability.

Israel has now handed the Bush family the opportunity it has been waiting for to consolidate America's imperial grip on the Gulf and acquire control of the Caspian basin by extending its military presence in Central Asia. Bush conveniently overlooks -- or is not told -- the fact that Islamic fundamentalists got their big boost in the modern age as CIA assets in the covert campaign I was also involved with to force the Soviets out of Afghanistan.

Bush senior was vice president during that entire campaign. And no sooner did he become president on Jan. 20, 1989, than he summoned an inter-agency intelligence meeting and issued an order, among several others, to clip the wings of ISI (Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence) that had been coordinating the entire operation in Afghanistan. I know this firsthand as I was DGISI at the time (director general, ISI).

Q: So how do you read U.S. strategy in Pakistan?

A: The destabilization of Pakistan is part of the U.S. plan because it is a Muslim nuclear state. The U.S. wants to isolate Pakistan from China as part of its containment policy. President Nixon's book "The Real War" said China would be the superpower of the 21st Century. The U.S. is also creating hostility between Pakistan and Afghanistan, two
Muslim states to reverse the perception that the Islamic world now has its own nuclear weapons. Bush 43 doesn't realize he is being manipulated by people who understand geopolitics. He is not leading but being led. All he can do is think in terms of the wanted-dead-or-alive culture, which is how Hollywood conditions the masses to think and act.

All summer long we heard about America's shrinking surplus and that the Pentagon would not have sufficient funds to modernize for the 21st century. And now, all of a sudden, the Pentagon can get what it wants without any Democratic Party opposition. How very convenient!

Even your cherished civil liberties can now be abridged with impunity to protect the expansion of the hegemony of transnational capitalism. There is now a new excuse to crush anti-globalization protests.

Bush 43 follows Bush 41. Iraq was baited into the Kuwaiti trap when the U.S. told Saddam it was not interested in his inter-Arab squabbles. Two days later, he moved into Kuwait, which was an Iraqi province anyway before the British Empire decreed otherwise.
Roosevelt baited the Pearl Harbor trap for the Japanese empire, which provided the pretext for entering World War II. And now the Israelis have given the U.S. the pretext for further expansion into an area that will be critical in the next 25 years - the Caspian basin.

Q: Were you a fundamentalist in the days of the war against the Soviets in Afghanistan when you worked closely with the CIA?

A: Not as much as I am today.

Q: What turned you against America?

A: Betrayals and broken promises and what was done to my army career.

Q: And what was that?

A: President Ishaq Khan, who succeeded Zia ul-Haq after his plane was blown out of the sky, wanted to appoint me chief of staff, the highest position in the Pakistani army. The U.S., which by then had clipped ISI's wings, also blocked my promotion by informing the president I was unacceptable. So I was moved to a corps commander position. As ISI director, I held the whole Mujahideen movement in the palm of my hands. We were all pro-American. But then America left us in the lurch and everything went to pieces, including Afghanistan.

The U.S. pushed for a broad-based Afghan government of seven factions and then waved goodbye. Even in the best of democracies, a broad-based coalition does not work. So we quickly had seven jokers in Kabul interested in only one thing - jockeying for power. The gunplay quickly followed, which led to the creation of Taliban, the students of the original Mujahideen, who decided to put an end to it.

Q: What happened to the 1,000 shoulder-fired Stinger anti-aircraft missiles that were supplied by president Reagan in 1986 and 87 to the Mujahideen, and that literally grounded the Soviet air force?

A: After the Soviets pulled out, the CIA allocated $60 million to try to buy them back. This just drove the black market price up for one Stinger from $100,000 to $300,000. The Taliban still have about 250 of them for the kind of situation they face today against U.S. aircraft.

Q: Is the U.S. now your enemy?

A: Is the U.S. national interest in contradiction with the Muslim
world? The U.S. needs oil, as do its European allies. You have
between 6 and 8 million American Muslims and their ranks are growing.
About the same number in Europe. Israel aside, we are America's natural allies. Prof. Sam Huntington in his "Clash of Civilizations" puts Confucius and Judeo-Christians in one corner, and us in the other. His prescription is wrong but is being adopted by Bush 43 who has now put 60 countries on his hit list. This is the diabolical school that wants to launch an anti-Muslim "crusade." Muslims understood what Bush meant when he used that word.

We need a meeting, not a clash, of civilizations. We are on the brink of disaster. It is time to pull back from the brink and reassess before we blow ourselves up. The purpose of Islam is service to humanity. The time for like-minded people to have a meeting of the minds is now.

Q: But you are against democracy, so how can there be a meeting of the minds?

A: Democracy does not work. Politicians are constantly thinking of their next election, not the public good, which means, at best, constantly shading the truth to hide it from their constituents. Their pronouncements are laced with lies and the voters are lulled or gulled into believing utter nonsense. The Koran says call a spade a spade. It is the supreme law and tells right from wrong. There is no notion of "my country right or wrong" under divine law. The creator's will predominates. All if subservient to Allah's will and adherence to a set of basic, fundamental values.

Q: So what kind of a system are you advocating?

A: The world needs a post-modern state system. Right now, the nation-state and round the clock satellite TV lead people to imitate America's way of life. Which is mathematically impossible. You have 4 percent of the world's population consuming 32 percent of the world's resources. The creator through Prophet Mohammed said equal distribution. Capitalism is the negation of the creator's will. It leads to imperialism and unilateralism.

Q: So what does this post-modern state system look like?

A: A global village under divine order, or we will have global
bloodshed until good triumphs over evil. Islam encapsulates all the principal religions and what was handed down 1,400 years ago was the normal evolutionary sequel to Judaism and Christianity. The prophet's last sermon was a universal document of human rights for everyone that surpasses everything that came since, including America's declaration of independence and the U.N. Charter of universal rights. If you superimpose true secular values on true Islamic values, there is no difference. So surely divine law should supersede man-made law.
Islam is egalitarian, tolerant and progressive. It is the wave of the future.

Q: Marxism also believed that the nation-state would eventually wither away.

A: Socialism jumped the rails when it was co-opted by the imperialist Soviet state. Islam believes in dynamism, Christianity stands for static statism. The pope in all his pronouncements has expressed a dogmatic attachment to the status quo. Why are so many black Americans converting to Islam? Because they are looking for true equality which they cannot find under capitalism. Allah has no gender, neither male nor female. Islam has no indirect taxation in an interest-free economy. Usury was a Jewish concept.

Q: Is Iran your model?

A: There isn't a single true Islamic state in the world today. Iran has moved forward from its 1979 revolution, but I am not sure whether it's the right direction.

Q: And Taliban?

A: They represent Islam in its purest form so far. It's a clean sheet. And they were also moving in the right direction when this crisis was cooked up by the U.S. Until Sept. 11, they had perfect law and order with no formal police force, only traffic cops without sidearms. Now, in less than two weeks, they have mobilized some 300,000 volunteers to fight American and British invaders if they come.

Q: And your reaction to U.S. demands on Pakistan?

A: If Pakistan gives the U.S. base rights we will have a national upheaval. And if the U.S. attacks Afghanistan, there will be a call -- a fatwa -- for a general jihad. All borders will then disappear and it will be a no-holds-barred Islamic uprising against Israel and American imperialism. Pakistan will be engulfed in the firestorm. So I can only hope that cooler heads will prevail in Washington.

Q: What about the other U.S. demands?

A: Overflight rights are meaningless since the U.S. violates air space daily all over the world. As for intelligence sharing with ISI, you can't even catch your own terrorists. And what ISI gives you will be of marginal value anyway.

Q: President (Pervez) Musharraf has made strong statements supporting the U.S.

A: He was my student in the army. He is a good man, but he doesn't understand Islam. The army will never fight the masses. If push comes to shove, Musharraf will say no to the Americans rather than turn against the people. He is not just facing a handful of angry people. By his own admission, it's 10 percent to 15 percent of the population, or at least 10 million people willing to fight. For openers, they would close the port of Karachi. A country cannot
breathe without lungs.

Q: Back to Osama's terrorist network. Who was behind the bombing of the U.S. Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya?

A: Mossad is strong in both countries. Remember the Israeli operation to free hostages in Entebbe (Uganda)? Both Kenya and Tanzania were part of the logistical tail. A so-called associate of Osama was framed at Karachi airport. The incidents took place on Aug. 8, 1999,
and on the 10th a short, clean-shaven man disembarks at Karachi airport and presents the passport of a bearded man. Not your passport, he was told. He then tries to bribe the clerk with 200 rupees. A ludicrously small sum given the circumstances. The clerk says no and turns him in and he starts singing right away. Not plausible. Osama has sworn to me on the Koran it was not him and he is truthful to a fault. Pious Muslims do not kill innocent civilians who included many Muslim victims. The passport must have been switched while the man was asleep on the plane in what has all the earmarks of a Mossad operation. For 10 years, the Mujahideen fought the Soviets in Afghanistan and not a single Soviet embassy was touched anywhere in the world. So this could not have been Osama's followers.

Q: What if bin Laden has been lying to you and is guilty. Is that inconceivable?

A: If Taliban are given irrefutable evidence of his guilt, I am in favor of a fair trial. In America, one is entitled to a jury of peers. But he has no American peers. The Taliban would not object, in the event of a prima face case, to an international Islamic court meeting in The Hague. They would in turn extradite Osama to the Netherlands.
