17 years after the fact, Ron Unz is increasingly inclined to conclude that Israel was responsible for the deadly 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington DC:
We would normally expect that terrorist attacks resulting in the complete destruction of three gigantic office buildings in New York City and an aerial assault on the Pentagon would be an operation of enormous size and scale, involving very considerable organizational infrastructure and manpower. Yet in the aftermath of the attacks, the US government undertook great efforts to locate and arrest the surviving Islamic conspirators, but scarcely managed to find a single one. Apparently, they had all died in the attacks themselves or otherwise simply vanished into thin air.
But oddly enough, without making much effort at all, the American government did quickly round up and arrest some 200 Israeli Mossad agents, many of whom had been based in exactly the same geographical locations as the purported 19 Arab hijackers. Furthermore, NYC police arrested some of these agents publicly celebrating the 9/11 attacks, while others were caught driving vans in the New York area containing explosives or their residual traces. Most of these Mossad agents refused to answer any questions, and many of those who did failed polygraph tests, but under political pressure all were eventually released and deported back to Israel.
There is also another fascinating tidbit that I have very rarely seen mentioned. One month after the 9/11 attacks, an Israeli intelligence officer and a local Jewish activist were caught attempting to sneak weapons and explosives into the Mexican Parliament building, a story that naturally produced several banner-headlines in leading Mexican newspapers at the time but which was totally ignored by the American media. Eventually, under massive political pressure, all charges were dropped and the Israeli agent deported back home. I remember first encountering this extremely suspicious incident in the early 2000s on an fringe Hispanic-activist website, and the scanned front pages of the Mexican newspapers reporting the dramatic events were once available elsewhere on the Internet, but after all these years I can no longer easily locate them. The details of this incident are obviously rather fragmentary and perhaps garbled, but certainly quite intriguing.
One might speculate that if Islamic terrorists had followed up their 9/11 attacks by also destroying the Mexican parliament building a month later, Latin American support for America’s military invasions in the Middle East would have been enormously greater. Furthermore, any scenes of such massive destruction in the Mexican capital by Arab terrorists would surely have been broadcast non-stop on Univision, America’s dominant Spanish-language network, fully solidifying Hispanic support for President Bush’s military endeavors.
It has to be admitted that this incredible hypothesis would explain more than a few anomalies surrounding the Official Story, which we already know has to be false due to it being the mainstream media narrative. Just to name one, the sudden transformation of the neocons from defeated mercenaries tied to John McCain to the lords of Bush 43’s foreign policy has hitherto been inexplicable. The hypothesis certainly fits the means-motive-opportunity heuristic that has never made any sense when applied to Osama bin Laden, who denied responsibility, to say nothing of Saddam Hussein, and it also fits the historical pattern of Israeli false flag attacks blamed on Arabs, a pattern that, as Unz notes, goes back to the 1946 attack on the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.
The hypothesis may also help explain the strangely intense hostility that the media harbors for Q, as well as why Q rather bizarrely brought up Israel as a problem for the Trump administration that is even bigger than North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Q has repeatedly pointed out that the American public is not ready for the unvarnished truth, and while most of us have assumed he was simply talking about pedophiles and Satanists in high places, the possibility of an official declaration from the White House that 9/11 was an Israeli false flag would tend to fall in the category of truths that the average American would find very hard to accept, especially in light of the inevitable media firestorm that such an announcement would ignite.
As a strong supporter of Israel, I have to admit that if it eventually turns out that Israel was, in fact, responsible for attacking New York City and Washington DC, I don’t know if I will ever be able to forgive them for failing to launch a few missiles at Hollywood as well.
Anyhow, I don’t know who is responsible. At this point, it wouldn’t surprise me if it turned out to be a secret Mormon-Scientologist alliance formed to immanentize the eschaton. But the truth is what it is, and history is what happened, regardless of what we happen to believe today. About the only parties we can be certain were re not responsible are Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, and al Qaeda.
