Antisemitism has come to mean anti-Jewishness. It is important to note that neither Dr. Sabrosky (who has Jewish ancestors), nor I, nor any of the millions of individuals (many of them Jews) who question or deplore actions of the state of Israel or political Zionism, that led to Israel’s creation, are anti-Jewish… any more than those of us who disapprove of the KKK are anti-Christian. — bw
Whenever Israel’s supporters today speak of a “special relationship” with the US that is supposedly graven in stone, it is useful to remember that something very different existed when Israel came into existence in 1948 on the gutted carcass of Palestine. The US recognized Israel, but that was about it. Hollywood was (and remains) largely a Jewish preserve, but their level of influence elsewhere—in the government, the media and academia—was limited.
Prominent American Jews felt no obligation to endorse Israel or Israeli leaders, no matter what happened. Dozens (including Albert Einstein) signed a letter published in the New York Times in 1948 protesting the arrival of Menachem Begin and condemning his actions. And the general American public was largely indifferent to what happened in the Middle East. Continue reading →
The Death Star in Ashes: Humanity Rises
by Brian Wright (reviewed by the author)
More of a description than a review. I want to hold a place in Book Reviews for my Coffee Coaster Website, and point to the book both with the intent to encourage sales and to promote the cause-oriented, 9/11 Truth movement activities that the book After 9/11 Truth founds. These activities are a ‘new model’ for achieving success for the truth—’truth’ defined simply as debunking the official story (OS) of 9/11 and beginning to empanel fully empowered grand juries to investigate and bring indictments of legitimate suspects in the case.
My aim was break the logjam in the movement of incessant talk with actions that yet produce no real prospect of a tipping point to a sea change of public opinion… that we require to obtain healing justice for the Crime of the Century. From the book jacket: Continue reading →
“The false narrative of what happened on 9/11 can no longer be supported or sustained by any reasonable person.” — Christopher Bollyn, open letter to Pope Francis, March 25, 2014
This chapter is from my column on TheCoffeeCoaster.com boldly entitled, “After 9/11 Truth.” I had been thinking that in terms of the logic and argument and sheer magnitude of evidence, it’s all over but the shouting. So why not seal the deal and do what Frances Kendall and Leon Louw did to South African Apartheid in 1987, write a book assuming its inevitable demise?
Killer contradictions in the Official Conspiracy Theory of the 9/11 Attacks
As I was working on my After 9/11 Truth book and funding project over the past two weeks it occurred to me that the first part of the book—which is a digest of significant scientific, engineering, and forensic works that show that the Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) is an absurd ‘pigs fly out of my butt’ viciously self-serving fairy tale—can be distilled into a rather brief list of contradictions to that story. My first cut comes up with 15. Note that a) many more such refutations of the OCT have been adduced by researchers and b) [this is absolutely crucial to grasp] it only requires one contradiction to demolish the government’s official story of 9/11. That’s right, if only one of the following contradictions is true, the whole Emperor’s New Suit of the OCT flies away in the wind.
Let me tell you that sometimes I wish I had never come on board the 9/11 Truth Team —rather, as millions of supposed patriotic Americans, I accepted the government’s story and not asked questions. For me the truth journey on 9/11 started in 2005, with the viewing of a shoestring-budget DVD entitled Where’s the Plane? It had a simple message: “Nobody has actually produced evidence that a Boeing 757, much less Flight 77, struck the Pentagon on 9/11/2001…” and as much as I balked at that conclusion, I had to agree.
Where’s the Plane led to more questions, then to a site called Center for an Informed America hosted by gadfly question-asker and citizen-researcher Dave McGowan. Dave presented evidence and analysis about the Pentagon, also the World Trade Center and other aspects of the official conspiracy theory of 9/11… that… JUST… DID… NOT… ADD… UP. From there I discovered David Ray Griffin, the site 9/11truth.org, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, etc., and I became a veteran advocate by 2008. Continue reading →
Moment of truth is near, let’s start planning for the aftermath
Yes, one should never assume victory in the middle of a fight, because then you can let your guard down and lose it. But in regard to learning the truth about the 9/11 attacks, we’re at the tail end of the fight and the Big Lie has run to the corner of the ring all bloodied and waiting for the official decision. It’s really all over but the shouting… and the forces of the truth movement stand at the threshold of a major, species-saving victory. There’s just so much evidence now, and the books, studies, and videos keep on truckin’. Let me name only a few—from my own little part of the ring:
