The proposal has quickly inflamed a part of New York's population who see it as an insult to the 3,000 New Yorkers who died on 9/11 in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
I can well understand the feelings of those New Yorkers whose loved ones died in the WTC attacks. And I have nothing to say on whether a cultural center containing a mosque should or should not be built.
I honor the dead of 9/11 and the suffering of their surviving relatives and friends.
But the truth of 9/11 will show that both they and the Muslim population, blamed for these events, are innocent victims.
The families of 9/11 victims, themselves being innocent victims, I'm sure would not like to see harm come to others who are also innocent.
It is so different that we may in time come to understand that Muslims deserve, and some day will receive, an apology from the American government for all that has been intentionally done to them from 9/11 onwards. And is still being done today.
I've discussed the subject in the article "To Muslims of America, I Apologize." (1)
In summary the point is this.
Nothing to do with 9/11 traces back to world Islam, whether it be to a terrorist movement that can be associated with a Muslim cause or to nineteen individuals of Muslim faith who allegedly caused the destruction and death on Sept. 11, 2001.
9/11 was truly, as has been said, an "inside job." It was an engineered false-flag operation in which some Muslims played a role, but in the employ of primarily American agencies like the CIA and FBI. It featured not only some Muslims, but also some Israelis as well as nationals from many other countries.
It was led and directed by elements in the American government, which included the leading figures of the Bush Administration (President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and many others), (2) banking and financial houses, (3) alphabet agencies, (4) the North American Air Defense Command, (4) the owners of the World Trade Center, assorted private companies, and many other John and Jane Does who conspired to bring the buildings down.
Not all members of the Bush government supported it, nor did all members of NORAD, nor all bankers, financiers, etc. It was the work of a cabal (albeit a large one) within these institutions. In the footnotes, I cite my sources for making these allegations.
Given that there were no Muslim hijackers with (or without) boxcutters on the airplanes that crashed on that day, and no Arab names listed in the manifestos, given that six of the alleged hijackers were located alive following that day and that a seventh, Mohammed Atta who was indeed a part of the plot, remains in hiding, no Arab hijackers were aboard the planes. One of the alleged hijackers contacted by the U.K. Telegraph, who should have died in Pennsylvania, said he had no idea where Pennsylvania was. (5)
The Saudi Arabian government presented these facts to President Bush who accepted them. But nothing was said about them in the mainstream media.
9/11"²s true originators remain largely free today and have more or less succeeded in fooling the vast majority of the American people.
