I am writing to raise awareness about Islamophobia, the unjustified, unfounded fear and hostility toward Islam and Muslims that results in discrimination, bias, marginalization, and, at times, violence.

I was triggered to investigate Islamophobia after the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the U.S.: the Tree of Life synagogue shooting. When Rabbi Meyers was asked about the outpouring of help received, he did not mention any of the Muslim organizations that donated $238,634 dollars for the victims. [1]

9/11/2001 is a day that is impossible to forget. In many ways, 9/11 fueled 20 years of war and profoundly transformed U.S. public opinion of anyone even appearing to be of Arab or Muslim descent.

Disclaimer: 9/11 was not a False Flag. Just because it is impossible that 110 stories of steel and concrete could ever collapse, and for sure could ever collapse at free fall speed, from being hit by an airplane, does not prove that 9/11 was a MIHOP (Made it Happen on Purpose). Bush, Cheney, and the Neocons did not kill 3,000 Americans so they could pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq.

The architects, engineers, pilots and scholars, whose mission was to "expose the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events 9/11, were only successful at exonerating the 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al Qaeda who were falsely accused of hijacking four airplanes to carry out a suicide attack on the United States.

The 9/11 Truth conspiracies that a rogue element of the US government used controlled demolition to bring down the twin towers is, I repeat are FALSE.

Islamophobia certainly existed in the US long before 9/11 but in the aftermath, the fight against terrorism sparked anti-immigrant sentiment, primarily directed at the Muslim population. [2]

Dr. Maha Hilal, author of, Innocent Until Proven Muslim: Islamophobia, the War on Terror and the Muslim Experience Since 9/11 writes the story of two decades of the War on Terror, but one of the riddles wrapped in a mystery is that Hilal does not question the official narrative:

Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, who the night before was in the Rawalpindi military hospital, getting kidney dialysis treatment, crash airplanes into steel skyscrapers because they "hate our freedom to consume." Inexplicably the jet fuel, which is basically kerosene that burns at about 400c, took on the qualities of an explosive demolition agent, vaporizing 70 tons of aircraft into a puff of smoke and causing 110- story buildings to collapse into a pile of rubble.

Another riddle wrapped in a mystery is that The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America's largest Muslim civil liberties organization working to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America accepts the official narrative.

I contacted Robert S. McCaw, CAIR Director of Government Affairs Department and the CAIR National Deputy Director, Edward Ahmed Mitchell requesting CAIR's stance on the events of September 11. On Saturday, November 6, 2021, 05:03:27 PM PDT, Robert McCaw wrote: In response to your phone, text, and email inquiries, I refer you to the following two press releases:

For further information I would refer you to the 9/11 Commission Report: click here

Sincerely, Robert S. McCaw, CAIR Director of Government Affairs Department

CAIR Welcomes Elimination of Osama Bin Laden? What is the evidence that Bin Laden, the former CIA "intelligence asset" and leader of al-Qaeda, was the mastermind of 9/11?

Well according to CBS and the FBI " the evidence doesn't exist.

[From FBI says, it has "No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11" By Ed Haas]

06/18/06 "Muckraker Report" - June 6, 2006 - This past weekend, a thought-provoking e-mail circulated through Internet news groups, and was sent to the Muckraker Report by Mr. Paul V. Sheridan (Winner of the 2005 Civil Justice Foundation Award), bringing attention to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorist web page for Usama Bin Laden.

In the e-mail, the question is asked, "Why doesn't Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted poster make any direct connection with the events of September 11, 2001?" The FBI says on its Bin Laden web page that Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya.

On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden's Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden's Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."

You would expect that CAIR would know that Flights AA 11 and AA 77 Did Not Exist on September 11, 2001, the article by Peter Meyer, presents evidence obtained from US-government-supplied records that Flights AA 11 and AA 77 did not even exist on September 11, 2001. Pilots for 9/11 Truth, along with John Lear, the son of Learjet inventor, and a former CIA and civilian pilot has sworn an affidavit, stating that no planes flew into the Twin Towers as it would have been physically impossible. [3]

And finally, McCaw suggested I read the 9/11 Commission Report.

9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth where a panel of experts from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, and jurisprudence, highlighted the problems with all major claims of the official account of the 9/11 attacks.

America's foreign policy since 2001, which has resulted in millions of deaths, is been based on a complex deception. 9/11 Unmasked is the result of a six-year investigation by an international review panel, which has provided 51 points illustrating the problematic status of all the major claims in the official account of the 9/11 attacks, some of which are obviously false. The book reports only points about which the panel reached consensus by using the "best-evidence" consensus model employed in medical research.

Most dramatically, the official account of the destruction of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7 could not possibly be true, unless the laws of physics were suspended that day. But other claims made by the official account-including the claims that the 9/11 planes were taken over by al-Qaeda hijackers, that one of those hijackers flew his plane into the Pentagon, and that passengers on the planes telephoned people on the ground-are also demonstrably false. The book reports only points about which the panel reached consensus by using the "best-evidence" consensus model employed in medical research. The panel is composed of experts about 9/11 from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, and jurisprudence.

All right CAIR isn't telling the world the truth there must be someone from the Muslim Community speaking and writing about the innocence of Muslims on 9/11. A poll taken by found that majorities in only 9 of the 17 countries believe al-Qaeda carried out the attacks and 65 percent of those surveyed said al-Qaeda was NOT responsible,

I couldn't find anything other than more Innocent Until Proven Muslim articles.

So, I went to the web and googled:

why don't Muslims (Arabs) tell the world that Muslims did not do 9/11

why don't Muslims speak out about 9/11

There are results but nothing relevant or related to the question.

I tried Parseek Jr (Iranian Website), and when you search for

why don't Muslims (Arabs) tell the world that Muslims did not do 9/11

why don't Muslims speak out about 9/11

You get 403 Forbidden: The 403 Forbidden error is an HTTP status code which means that accessing the page or resource you were trying to reach is absolutely forbidden for some reason.

I was interested in finding out more about 403 and was told to do the search with the Tor Browser. I finally found an article explaining why no one is speaking about the truth that no Muslims were involved in 9/11.

The article Can American Muslims Talk About 9/11? is long but worth reading, excerpt below:

"American Muslims hesitate to publicly discuss their views regarding what really happened on 9/11, because they fear being further isolated and marginalized; after all, mainstream media and political leaders tend to mock anyone who questions the official 9/11 story. American Muslims also fear the government will investigate them if they speak out. (Pew found most Muslims in America say life has become more difficult for their community since 9/11, and most believe the government singles out Muslims for scrutiny.)

In private discussions in mosques and Muslim homes, American Muslims often argue that no "real Muslim" would have carried out such attacks against civilians. Furthermore, they say, the 19 young Muslims accused of being the hijackers could not have pulled it off. They could not have snuck knives onto four planes, successfully hijacked four planes using just those knives, and then flown three of the planes - unchallenged by US air defenses - into three buildings including the military headquarters of the US.

And like many people who question the events of 9/11 they come to the incorrect conclusion that it was some sort of false flag and "someone else, someone better connected, hijacked the planes, or that the planes were crashed into buildings by remote control, and the World Trade Center was ultimately brought down by explosives."

The 403 Forbidden is still a mystery.

You will need the link to read the entire article, Can American Muslims Talk About 9/11?

Even if you have the title and the website Muslims for 911 Truth, you can't find the article.


During my investigation as to why the Muslim community stays silent about their innocence, I came across the conspiracy theory that the hijackers were conned and mind controlled, which is false but interesting.

The Muslim community was enjoying acceptance before 9/11 and a very powerful forces wanted that to end. I was told that the Saudi terrorists were groomed ahead of time and conned into believing they would be heroes for carrying out a variation of a suicide bombing on 9/11 that would be seen as them doing something good.

They believe the conning required mind control as well and was executed by a deep state that will never be exposed because it is in "an alternate reality," that wants to demonize Muslims around the World.

The conspiracy includes Israel because the perception was that Israel's acceptance was declining as Muslim's was increasing before 9/11. The Saudi's were selected because of the US and Saudi relationships which explains why Bush allowed them to leave the country right after the WTC collapse.

They claim the plan was in place over a year before 9/11 and all the military, special forces and the authorities had foreknowledge and was directly related to Afghanistan.

Please contact me if you have any information related to the false conspiracy that Muslims were conned into believing they would be heroes for a 9/11suicide bombing.


[1] I was prompted to look into the Islamophobia after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting when Robert Bowers, a white supremacist entered the Tree of Life Synagogue and yelled "All Jews must die," then opened fire upon the congregants, the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the U.S.

Two Muslim organizations captured the attention of millions of people worldwide in October and November 2018, when they raised more than $200,000 for the victims of a mass shooting at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue on 27 October that claimed 11 lives.

There was so much attention to the act of kindness a false rumor surfaced that the Muslim Groups Kept the Money Intended for the Victims of the Shooting.

What was even more surprising was that Rabbi Meyers when asked about the outpouring of help received, did not mentioned any of the Muslim organizations that raised money for the victims? Click Here

He appeared again and again in public in the ensuing days, willingly giving live interviews to morning news programs, physically being pulled into other network TV interviews and hosting the controversial visit of President Donald Trump and the first family to the violated synagogue.

"America's rabbi," was how Tree of Life's Rabbi Emeritus Alvin Berkun described his successor's gracious response. "He handled himself very, very well."

Rabbi Myers said he has been willing to step forward partly in gratitude to Pittsburgh in general for its support, and to its police officers in particular who rescued him and others at risk to their lives. Six officers were injured, four by gunfire. Rabbi Myers did not step forward to thank the Muslim community.

[2] And we know that institutionalized Islamophobia was at the very core of the war on terror from the onset, from the signing of the AUMF (the Authorization for Use of Military Force), to the war in Afghanistan, to the memorandum that gave the CIA the authority to detain suspects and those policies targeting, either exclusively or disproportionately Muslims.

[3] Furthermore, the alleged pilot of Flight 77, Hani Hanjour, was so incompetent he couldn't fly a Cessna therefore he would not be capable of flying a 767 at excessive speed into a spiraling, 270-degree descent and a level impact of the first floor of the Pentagon.
