Arab Media Run Out of Incitement, Rehash ‘Israel-9/11’ Libel

Two Arabic language websites in Britain and Egypt, banking on the theory that people will believe a lie if you tell it often enough, have dug out the “Blame Israel for 9/11” libel again.

The “PalPress.com” website in Britain and the “Moheet” site, whose editorial offices are in Egypt, apparently are running out of anti-Zionist incitement. They headlined for their readers this week the old libel that Israel engineered the 9/11 disaster.

The latest rehash of the oft-repeated slanders could be dismissed as ridiculous, but the constant repetition of lies has a cumulative effect of turning the young Arab generation into firm believers that the “Zionists” really were the culprits of the worst-ever terrorist attack in the West, if not the entire world.

If enlightened pro-Arab thinkers in the West need any more evidence of the lack of veracity of anti-Israel propaganda, both websites published the same “study” that provides the proof: “Netanyahu – who was prime minister of Israel – is the architect of the September 11, 2001, through his managing the Mossad and Shin Bet.”

For good measure, they added that the “Prime Minister” has “a long history involvement in criminal acts and the Likud Party to which he belongs is the successor of a terrorist organization, which published a book in the 1980s “Terrorism: How the West Can Win.”

In case anyone has forgotten, Ariel Sharon was Prime Minister in 2001, but the Arab websites could easily dismiss this fact by claiming that Sharon was Netanyahu’s puppet.

The Moheet site’s editorial offices are in Cairo. The site was founded in 1997 and is based in Dubai with editorial offices in Cairo.

The Lebanese newspaper Al-Diyar was cited by PalPress for an “expose” based on “new evidence that has not been published before,” although the allegations are not new.

The Elders of Zion blog, which reported the latest Arab media incitement, notes, “So what does it say about the Arab media that they prioritize yet another anti-semitic theory on their front pages?”

In case anyone does not know the details of the conspiracy theory, Iran’s government-controlled Press TV provided the details last August, telling its readers that Czech-born Jew “Frank Lowy and his co-partner Larry Silverstein had rented the whole World Trade Center (WTC) for 99 years just a few weeks before the 9/11 attacks.

“Silverstein and the Westfield company pocketed about $5.4 billion from the attacks.”

Two other Jews supposedly behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks are New York Port Authority Louis Eisenberg, “a personal Jewish criminal,” according to PalPress and Moheet, and cosmetics tycoon Ron Lauder.

The libel also invents a “documentary study” that the Mossad blew up the Twin Towers. The theories draw a line, impossible to follow,  which connect Jews with being former clients of the Shin Bet, or former IDF soldiers, or Likud party officials. They, obviously, are linked with the corruption charges against former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Arab readers also again are told that Israeli citizens received advance warnings of the attacks and that only five Israelis were killed in the two aerial attacks on the Twin Towers.

The libel, repeated for years, rambles on and on but is based on a “study,” which is all it takes to convince insulated and less-than-brilliant Arabs that it must be true.

    Can we get an actual bio on writer. I suspect he didn't cover the eviction from Gan Eden so " forever " must be an exaggeration. I'd like to build credibility in this area; this makes it hard to take JEwish Press seriously… Thanks.

  2. Colin Bryant says:

    It is true about Silverstein.

  3. Matt Williams says:

    Lets talk about the 5 'dancing Israelis' arrested on 911.
