Folks, the editor of Israel Resource Agency, David Bedein, wrote the following article I Was There about his personal eye-witness account of the towers falling on 9-11. David writes:
While taking the pictures, I called the news line of The Voice of Israel radio station and reported a 10 minute live report, in real time, of the collapse of the twin towers as I witnessed it. Throughout the next 12 hours, this reporter contacted security sources in Israel to hear their perspective of what had transpired.
Their feedback: Look beyond Bin Laden to determine who was responsible for this horrendous crime. One source at the Israeli prime minister’s office noted that Israel was warning the U.S. to examine the cooperation of several governments, NOT individuals, in the perpetration of the act: Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, coordinated with Syria and the PLO.
Meanwhile, veteran Jerusalem investigative reporter Dennis Eisenberg interviewed former advisor on terrorism to Israeli Prime Minister’s Office, Mr. Rafi Eitan, who said that that all signs pointed to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein as the leading perpetrator of the act. Yet another Israeli intelligence expert remarked that the Israeli government had warned that U.S. airlines may have been infiltrated by Muslim personnel who could have been activated to carry out such attacks. On the Palestinian side, conversations with Palestinian reporters made it quite clear that the demonstrations of joy that occurred immediately following the attacks in the cities under the Arafat’s control could not have been organized without the direct approval of Yassir Arafat [may his name be erased].
The Middle East Newsline reported that Arafat’s personnel were in the forefront of the Palestinian street demonstrations that lauded the Twin Tower attacks. It was the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Information that alerted and invited AP, Reuters, BBC, CNN and NBC to film the Palestinian demos of support for the terror attacks in the U.S.
The Palestinian Authority conveyed a strong undercurrent of vitriolic anti-American rhetoric before, during and after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Only two weeks before, the U.S. government had ordered its delegation to walk out on the U.N. international forum on human rights in Durban, South Africa after the Palestinian delegation had engineered a series of tendentious anti-Israel events.
The Mufti of the Palestinian Authority, Sheikh Ikrem al-Sabry, had been explicitly threatening the U.S. and Britain in his Friday mosque sermons broadcast on V.O.P. and telecast on PBC. On August 24th, 2001, at about 12:30 p.m. he preached:
“O Allah, destroy America and its agents and its abettors. O Allah destroy Britain and its agents and its abettors.”
Elsewhere in the Khutba (Mosque sermon) , Sheikh al-Sabry called on all Muslims to unite to follow the path of Sallah al-Din (Salladin, who repelled the Crusaders):
“O Allah, prepare and unite them (the Muslims) and guide them in the path of Salah al-Din.”
Throughout the speech, the sheikh called on Muslims to follow the path of Jihad, holy war.
“If American does not restrict Israel, then there will be a regional, even a global calamity. If the United States does not stop Israel’s aggression, then it, too (the U.S.) will suffer a great disaster.”
We all know what happened. David reminds us:
Less than one month after the 9/11 attacks, during the week of Oct.5th-October 11), the Voice of Palestine has relayed daily reports which claimed Israeli Mossad involvement in the World Trade Center attacks, with the complicity of American citizens, with no mention of any Arab involvement.
