Some commenters are continuing to beat the dead horse of “Jews got warned on 9-11”. Well, 450 Jews obviously never got warned, and they got killed in the attack. And the 1 or 2 Israelis killed in the attack never got warned either.
One piece of evidence is that supposedly Odigo Headquarters in Israel sent out warnings to its NY subsidiary 2 hours before the attack warning of an upcoming attack.
I think this has been misrepresented. Odigo is just an instant messenger. It’s like Yahoo Messenger. That’s all it is. Tons of messages go out over it all over the globe all the time. I’m not sure of the details of this warning, but I believe that there were just some instant messages sent out over the Odigo network a couple of hours before the attack.
There were like 2 or 3 instant messages sent out on Odigo. I’m not sure who sent them out, or to whom they were directed. I am not sure that Odigo actually did evacuate its NY office as a result of some forewarnings.
I have done a lot of research into 9-11 myself. Keep in mind that tons of Arabs and Muslims also seem to have had some news of this impending attack before it happened, including knowledge of the attack even months before it went down.
Some notable cases were a case in Texas where an Arab elementary schooler was brought to the principal’s office several weeks before the attack crying and saying that they were going to blow up the WTC. The Principal’s office took the kid in, shrugged their shoulders, and sent him home.
In an English class for ESL students in NY a week or two before the attacks, a student went to the window and pointed to the WTC during class. He said, “See that building? In two weeks, it’s not going to be there.” Some of the students nodded their heads. I think the teacher reported it, but nothing happened.
It was later said that many Arabs and Muslims sympathetic to Islamist terrorists around New York had heard that the WTC was going to be attacked. It’s not known if they told anyone.
I also found that there were many Muslims, especially in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states and Pakistan, who seemed to have some foreknowledge of this plot in some way or another.
It’s a monument to anti-Semitism that the “9-11 truth” anti-Semites focus solely on Israeli foreknowledge, and don’t say one peep about the tremendous evidence for Muslim foreknowledge.
There are continuous rumors of upcoming terror attacks all over the globe. Most of them are complete bullshit. So most people just dismiss them.
Most people I talk to about this don’t recall this, but I recall that in the few years before 9-11, I kept hearing reports on cable news that “bin Laden is trying to attack the US.” They would show his picture and say his organization is trying to attack us. This according to US intelligence reports. After a while, I got so sick and tired of hearing, “bin Laden is trying to attack us,” that I figured it was like the boy who cried wolf. Then 9-11 happened. So a lot of folks knew something was up, but they just didn’t know what.
It is true that Israelis were warned before the UK 7-7 and Jordan Amman hotel terror attacks. All they were told is that a suspected terror plot was about to go down in the country. They didn’t have specifics about where, when or whom.
Keep in mind that there are near-constant warnings of upcoming terror attacks on one type or another all over the globe. These reports are called “raw intel”, most of them are either fake or never happen, and most are just dismissed by intel agencies. Sorting through “raw intel” and separating the wheat truth from the chaff BS is the job of intelligence agencies, and it is not so easy.
It’s interesting that Israeli Zim Shipping moved out of their WTC offices in the months before the attack.
Both US and Israeli sources say that Israel caught wind of some kind of a big plot a few weeks before the attack and tried to warn the US, but the US pretty much blew them off, since there were continuous warnings of such attacks at the time.
The behavior of Israelis, in particular the art students and the moving companies, in the events surrounding 9-11 is suspicious indeed. In particular the Israelis who were dancing on top of a building cheering while photographing the burning towers.
After the attacks, a number of Israelis were rounded up as possible suspects in the attacks. Also rounded up were many Muslims. After a while, all of these Israelis were released. I think some of them went on TV to vociferously state their innocence. Almost all, or all, of these Israelis seem to be connected to Israeli intelligence in some way or another.
It’s clear that Israel has attacked the US sometimes. They did in the US Liberty attack in which 36 sailors died. They did in Egypt in some bombings of US offices in the 1950’s.
In addition, they had knowledge of the Hezbollah attack on the Marine barracks in Lebanon but failed to warn and just let it go down. I assume they realized at the time that some US Jews may have been possible victims on the Liberty and in the barracks. On the other hand, Jews are dramatically underrepresented in the US armed forces.
One of the things I find so difficult to believe about the Israel knew about 9-11 thing is the idea that Israel would let the attack go down, knowing full well that huge numbers of US Jews were going to get killed. Jews are 2% of the US population and were 15% of the US victims. They warned Israelis but not US Jews? Huh?
Fox News did some excellent coverage on this issue and said that US intelligence agencies suspected Israel of foreknowledge of the attacks and failure to warn. That coverage was quickly pulled off Fox, and all transcripts of it vanished. Fortunately, I think you can find it in Youtube.
All US officials talking about their suspicions about Israel would only do so anonymously, as they said pushing such a theory was career suicide. Many had been ordered by superiors to stop pursuing the investigation of Israel and 9-11.
Further, the US Army War College issued a report on Mossad calling them a total wild card, perfectly capable of pulling off a terrorist attack and then blaming it in Arabs or Muslims. Mossad has done this at least once in the past, in the Lavon Affair in Egypt in 1950’s.
Let’s be clear though that I think that Al Qaeda did 9-11. The question with the Israelis and others is one of foreknowledge and failure to warn. I don’t suspect Israel of doing 9-11. That’s just absurd, and anyway, the evidence for Al Qaeda doing it is overwhelming.
