Rabbi Michael Lerner once wrote of the ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith):
“The ADL, like the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, has built its financial appeal to Jews on its ability to portray the Jewish people as surrounded by enemies who are on the verge of launching threatening anti-Semitic campaigns. It has a professional stake in exaggerating the dangers, and sometimes allows existing racial or political prejudices in the Jewish world to influence how it will portray the potential dangers.”
Well, it must be fundraising time again because the ADL’s anti-Farrakhan brigade has emerged once again to renew the stitching on the thread to the scarlet letter “A” that they long ago affixed to the public mentioning of the name of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. That “A” of course stands for “anti-Semite,” even though as a Black man and a Muslim the Minister fits the definition of a Semitic person and would be rather insane to be anti his own kind.
This time they have done so because of the Minister’s strong words spoken recently in part 2 of his magnificent Saviours’ Day address. In part 2 the Minister forcefully spoke to questions about the roots of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers in New York. This article questions the role of Muslims and questions Israel’s role in the WTC bombings.
In reaction to the ADL’s recent write-up, Minister Farrakhan sat for an interview with Final Call editor in chief Richard Muhammad to discuss the issues at hand. In that interview the Minister reiterated his narrative from part 2 of his Saviours’ Day address by stating:
“Paul Wolfowitz [was] talking to General Wesley Clark 10 years before 9/11, telling him they were going to clean out the Middle East. And then 10 days after 9/11, a general in the Pentagon pointed out to Mr. Clark a memo that contained plans to take down seven Muslim nations in five years. … The ADL understands that once the American people know that this country or the government and some members of it are, in fact, a party to the conspiracy to take down the Twin Towers in a false flag operation that was designed to create a situation that would so frighten, alarm, and anger the American people that they could direct that anger against the Muslim World and bring the war effort to take down seven Muslim nations in five years. Facts are now coming to light that show Muslims were not responsible for 9/11.”
What the Minister has stated about General Clark is true
Gen. Clark sat down for an interview with Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman in 2007. The following is an excerpt of that interview:
I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper, And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”
Before It’s News author Walt Gelles discusses how some international government officials have also pointed to the Israeli Mossad as being behind the 9/11 attacks. According to the Gelles article “U.S., Italy, Germany All Agree–9/11 Was An Inside Job,” several reputable government insiders questioned who was responsible for 9/11 and some blamed American government insiders and Mossad, the Israeli spy agency. In 2003, Andreas von Bulow—former German defense minister, cabinet technology minister in Helmut Schmidt’s administration, and member of the German parliament for 25 years—told the U.K. Daily Telegraph why he believes the U.S. government carried out the September 11 attacks in its quest to achieve global domination: “If what I say is right, the whole U.S. government should end up behind bars, They have hidden behind a veil of secrecy and destroyed the evidence—that they invented the story of 19 Muslims working within Osama bin Laden’s al-Qa’eda—in order to hide the truth of their own covert operation.”
Von Bulow asserted that the World Trade Center collapsed due to explosives, not the impact of airplanes. He said that no planes flew into the Pentagon or crashed in Pennsylvania, and that mobile phone calls made by those on the latter flight were simulated by the CIA. Von Bulow also claimed that the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, was involved in the attacks and that it warned Israelis to avoid the Twin Towers in the days before 9/11, the Daily Telegraph reported.
According to the Gelles piece, Francesco Cossiga, former President of Italy (1985-1992) and former Prime Minister, told Italy’s most respected newspaper, Corriere della Sera, that the 9/11 attacks were run by the CIA and by Israel’s spy agency Mossad and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies. In November 2007, Cossiga declared: “… All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe … now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized by the American CIA and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to falsely incriminate Arabic countries and to persuade the Western Powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
The writer also cites Alan Sabrosky, former Director of Studies at the U.S. Army War College–Strategic Studies Institute. “I am also absolutely certain as a strategic analyst that 9/11 itself, from which all else flows, was a classic Mossad-orchestrated operation. But Mossad did not do it alone. They needed local help within America (and perhaps elsewhere) and they had it, principally from some alumni of PNAC (the misnamed Project for a New American Century) and their affiliates within and outside of the U.S. Government (USG), who in the 9/11 attacks got the ‘catalytic event’ they needed and craved to take the U.S. to war on Israel’s behalf, only eight months after coming into office,” Sabrosky is quoted as saying.
Alan Hart, former Middle East Chief Correspondent for Independent Television News and former BBC Panorama presenter specializing in the Middle East, has authored the three-part series Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews. Hart has speculated that the destruction of the World Trade Center could have been facilitated by planes fitted with transponders and guided into the Twin Towers by Israeli Mossad agents. Oberlin Professor Joy Karega has recently discussed Israeli involvement in 9/11 in her extramural commentaries.
These are just a sample of the experts and officials whose on-the-record admissions raise the very same issues Minister Farrakhan has raised—issues the ADL objects to. Minister Farrakhan’s exposure of hidden truths finds him in the company of global truth-tellers, who are courageously awakening the masses of the people. By contrast, the ADL is continuing its long, ugly—yet profitable—history of character assassinations against the critics of Israel and the Jewish people.
Thank God for Minister Farrakhan! For as the sun of truth continues to rise and shine, the ADL’s carnal efforts to hide and destroy the truth become more and more transparent; for theirs is a losing battle against the encroachment of truth, whose time has finally come.
