In 2002, Mr Davidsson started research into the events of September 11, 2001 and founded the Icelandic chapter of the 9/11 truth movement. In October 2007, Mr Davidsson came to the UK and gave several talks regarding the basic lack of evidence which is available to support the official story of the 9/11 tragedy.
Mr Davidsson cited a number of examples, such as the lack of verified passenger lists for any of the planes, the lack of any CCTV footage of any of the accused hijackers in the airport terminal or boarding the flights. He additionally pointed out the lack of testimony from any airport personnel that they saw either passengers or hijackers boarding the planes. He also discussed how no boarding passes from the hijackers have been presented as evidence. Mr Davidsson discussed the issue of World Trade Centre Building 7, fell to the ground in 6.6 seconds even though there was no prior impact on the building. This was ignored by the 9/11 Commission and omitted from its 500-page report. Another issue he raised was the lack of any parts of planes being brought forward as evidence, apart from those shown in the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui in 2006 (However, Moussaoui was in prison on 9/11)
Following Mr Davidsson's lecture, Dr Mohammed Naseem, chairman of the Birmingham Central Mosque, was invited to comment on the subject of the 9/11 Story. He responded, "The whole saga and story of 7th July and 9/11 is totally astonishing – it doesn't make any sense. I do not question it because I am against America or England; I question it because it was an insult to my intelligence. I could not digest the information I was given – it did not make any sense."
Dr Naseem then referred to a think tank report that had stated "Researchers found radical or hate-filled books and pamphlets at a quarter of the 100 Islamic religious institutions they visited." Dr Naseem then posed the question "Who is the author of this literature?" and he pointed out that Mosques are public places, where anyone can walk in and leave material. He referred to a previous incident at his own Mosque where a woman had left some CDs on the table and that these were found to contain inflammatory material. When the material was viewed, it was found that an organisation was mentioned and so this information was promptly passed to the Police, but no action was taken.
He went on to express his concern that the media was allowing these sorts of stories to be promulgated and that there were "4 organisations running the world" – the Bilderberg group, the Trilateral Commission, McKenzie and Co Public Relations, and Common Purpose.
He stated that the Bilderberg group was a secret organisation, which holds secret "invitation only" meetings. He stated that the job of Trilateral Commission was to identify those people in power in a given country who would be willing to accept the Bilderberg's agenda for their own country. He stated that the job of the McKenzie organisation was to facilitate the policies of a leader such as Tony Blair.
Dr Naseem stated the fourth organisation – Common Purpose was "seeping through society like branches of cancer" and that to attend one of their seminars would cost £3000. He also stated that taxpayers' money was going "into the wrong pockets". He added that one of the activities which took place in the Common Purpose seminars is "brain-washing," and that Common Purpose was seeking to identify "the leaders of the future" so that they would eventually "sing from the same hymn book" - which was prepared by Bilderberg, The Trilateral Commission, McKenzie and Co. and Common Purpose". Dr Naseem said to the audience that he was mentioning these matters to "awaken" them rather than frighten them, so that "the network" of these organisations "can be broken". He said, "We have to challenge at every step of the way. We have to be vocal. We have to be articulate." He appealed to people to pass this message on to non-Muslim friends.
He also stated how he felt that Muslims, though they were affected, weren't the real target of curtailments of Civil Liberties – as they number only about 1.5 million in the UK. He pointed out some examples of non-Muslim people who had been arrested under anti-terrorism laws, such as labour party member Walter Wolfgang who was 82 years old.
In a 2nd shorter address to audience, following a question, he called again for an independent Public Enquiry into the 7th of July (2005) London Bombings, stating that if the authorities were confident of their facts, then having such an enquiry could "restore harmony to the community".
