Stratfor Thinks Israel Did 9/11?

9/11 Plane

I have a friend who often blames the Jews for pretty much every major incident that takes place. It is a source of strain on our friendship especially when he goes off on how Mao Tse-tung was a Jew, or at least controlled by the Jews. Now I understand that some people might not be happy with me being friends with an anti-Semite. However I feel that since he is my friend that I should try and help change him. I’d like to convince him to stop with the whole Jew blaming thing. Now to anyone who has ever tried to combat a person’s anti-Semitism, you how difficult a task it can be. It’s a very frustrating process that can often seem like it’s going backwards, not forwards. The task grows monumentally more difficult when something like this happens:

Actual evidence that Israel may have been behind the 9/11 attacks.

I know how that sounds. I know it seems very anti-Semitic, but this information comes from WikiLeaks. It comes from information released by the 5 million e-mails stolen from Stratfor. I’m sure we all remember when those got leaked to the public. Stratfor is a “global intelligence” company that fonts as “an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency.” So this somewhat of a semi-legit source, take it or leave it.

According the release, British intelligence reported in 2002 that the Israeli Mossad actually ran the group of terrorists that were accused of carrying out the terrorist attacks of 9/11. It includes both the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. It also shockingly shows that the report was suppressed by the government of Tony Blair.

A Mossad unit consisting of six Egyptian- and Yemeni-born Jews infiltrated “Al Qaeda” cells in Hamburg (the Atta-Mamoun Darkanzali cell), south Florida, and Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates in the months before 9/11. The Mossad not only infiltrated cells but began to run them and give them specific orders that would eventually culminate in their being on board four regularly-scheduled flights originating in Boston, Washington Dulles, and Newark, New Jersey on 9/11.

The Mossad infiltration team comprised six Israelis, comprising two cells of three agents, who all received special training at a Mossad base in the Negev Desert in their future control and handling of the “Al Qaeda” cells. One Mossad cell traveled to Amsterdam where they submitted to the operational control of the Mossad’s Europe Station, which operates from the El Al complexat Schiphol International Airport. The three-man Mossad unit then traveled to Hamburg where it made contact with Mohammed Atta, who believed they were sent by Osama Bin Laden. In fact, they were sent by Ephraim Halevy, the chief of Mossad.

The second three-man Mossad team flew to New York and then to southern Florida where they began to direct the “Al Qaeda” cells operating from Hollywood, Miami, Vero Beach, Delray Beach, and West Palm Beach. Israeli “art students,” already under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for casing the offices and homes of federal law enforcement officers, had been living among and conducting surveillance of the activities, including flight school training, of the future Arab “hijacker” cells, particularly in Hollywood and Vero Beach.

This is all very confusing because it’s quite something to actually seriously accuse Israel of being behind the events. There is no actual proof that Israel is responsible, but the source does lend some credibility to the claim. We do however know that Mossad agents were arrested on 9/11 and were held for some time for suspected involvement. The e-mail contains this fact and claims that they are the same one who coordinated the attacks. These men were seen by a witness celebrating the destruction of the towers. She also saw them with video recording equipment capturing the event. (See the arrest report here. See the witness statement here.)

If this isn’t suspicious enough, the men later appeared on television stating that their whole purpose of being there was to document the event. Their actual words were: “The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event.” This is after the arrest and after the attack. How could they have been there to document the event unless they knew it was going to happen? (See that video here.)

I don’t know what has happened here. I’m not the kind of person to blame 9/11 on Israel or Jews. What I do think however is that there is something here that has not been investigated, or at least not been properly investigated. I see no proof that Israel was behind the 9/11 terrorist attack, but I do see some pretty convincing evidence. You’ll have to be the judge until we have all the facts. That is assuming of course that we ever will.
