A number of unknown students at the Santa Barbara campus of the University of California started off the new school year this past weekend with posters proclaiming that Jews were responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“911 was an outside job,” reads the flier that featured a large, blue Star of David. The leaflet asks every student to “educate yourself” by visiting websites claiming that Israel was behind the Al Qaeda terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people., including hundreds of Jews.
It also suggested that people search Google for subjects such as “9/11 Was Mossad.”
Rabbi Evan Goodman, executive director of the Hillel branch on campus, wrote in a blog post that a Muslim student leader alerted him to the fliers, of which approximately 5-10 were distributed.
He added that Hillel and university staff, along with some students, took down the fliers.
On Tuesday, September 11th 2001 America was forever changed. At 8:46 a.m, five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern facade of the World Trade Center’s North Tower (1 WTC) and 17 minutes later at 9:03, another five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern facade of the South Tower (2 WTC). At 9:37 a third plane hijacked by another 5 fanatic Muslim terrorists flew into the Pentagon.
This was the most devastating attack to happen on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor. 2,977 innocent Americans lost their lives to the claws of fanatic Islam.
American men, women, children, Christians, Jews and Muslims were all the same to the terrorists who carried out the hideous 9/11 attack, they were all AMERICAN!
This was not about land or about foreign policy, this was about a grotesque and violent opposition to what America stands for; FREEDOM & EQUALITY!
The initial shock, pain and mourning was terrible and 13 years later many still cannot deal with the loss.
As an Israeli, I have seen and experienced the result of terrorism and have faced terrorists while serving in the IDF. I have lost men in battle as well as friends in random terrorist attacks and am way too familiar with this kind of pain. What these fanatic Muslim terrorists do not understand is, we, the free people of the world, have compassion. We care for each other and when they attempt to murder, destroy and cripple us, we actually become stronger and heroes are born.
The personal loss on 9/11 was something no human should ever experience but when it comes America’s pride, Al Qaeda lost big time! Not only did the great USA pick itself up, it rose more united and stronger than ever.
Then Came September 12th!
There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack and that is allowing those who attacked to do it again!
The United States of America went on an all out offensive against those who were responsible for the 9/11 attack and took out the head of the snake; Bin Laden. The only problem is, what was actually cut off was the tail and it wasn’t a snake, it was a lizard and a lizard’s tail grow back!
Unlike Hitler whose entire ideology came from his own head and could not be replaced, Bin Laden is a result of shared religious belief that needs no justification since it came from Allah.
Fanatic Islam has been the source for the majority of international terrorism over the past 50 years.
Islamic ( fanatic Islam) ideology does not believe in freedom or equality and believes in a social norm that would make most people reading this blog sick to their stomach.
It doesn’t matter how many bullets you killed Bin Laden with or where you dumped his body, when you bow or show respect to cultures or countries that do not believe women are allowed to drive, you are fueling the next 9/11.
I’ll admit it, I don’t like Obama, but this is not a problem that is exclusive to his administration. The United States has made treaties over the years with Muslim countries that laugh at the idea of freedom and equality, even for their own citizens! The burning of American flags can be seen from the same Islamic regimes that America thinks they have a good relationship with! Have you EVER seen an Israeli demonstration with burning American flags?!
Qatar is an official ally of the United States of America. Qatar is also the largest funder of Islamic terror as they ally themselves and fund organizations that seek the destruction of all Western society and culture including that of the USA.
The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani with Hamas head in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh during the emir’s October 2012 visit to Gaza. With that information known one, must ask why the Obama administration just signed an $11 BILLION weapons deal with Qatar! When @Blocknesmonster brought this Business Insider story to my attention, I could not believe my eyes!I understand Muslims have oil, but isn’t American lives more important?
Is Racial Profiling Justified?
While I understand why Muslims would be offended when they walk through airport security and are targeted for security checks only because they are Muslim, if Jews were blowing things up and flying planes into sky scrapers, all my anger would be reserved ONLY for those using my religion to justify murder.
Moderate Muslims should be the first to cooperate with security checks and encourage racial profiling as it eases the ability to catch those who are giving peaceful Muslims a bad name.
It might very well be that these terrorists are perverting the way of Islam but that does not change the fact that they believe they are following and preserving Allah’s way.
This is the Islamic terrorist organization that Israel recently fought a war against. Why anyone would want anything else besides total destruction of Hamas is beyond me.
America thought that if they took down Saddam and gave the people of Iraq freedom, they would be doing the Iraqi people a favor. Obama was so sure the war in Iraq was over, he bragged about it time and time again until this happened!
ISIS, Hizbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, PLO and many other terrorist organizations have one thing in common, they all believe that Allah gave them the right to murder.
There is not a single Islamic regime in the world that is peaceful and believes in giving equality even to their own citizens. I am not talking about what they do to homosexuals or other minority groups, I am talking to what they do to their own women!
Whether it’s the ban on women drivers or arresting women who do not cover themselves completely, fanatic Islam has absolutely nothing in common with anyone who believes in all men and women are created equally!
Are We Willing To Die For Truth As Much As They Are Willing To Kill For Lies?
Fanatic Muslims believe their lies more than we believe our truths and they are willing to die and kill you to protect their beliefs. While we are battling it out in the UN, trying to justify our actions and wars, organizations like ISIS are trying to figure out the cruelest way to murder innocent people and broadcast it all over the web.
While we are making rules of engagement and war based on humanity, those who are being protected by these rules reject them based on their religion.
Many claim Al Qaeda and ISIS were created by the United State of America and the truth is, they are not totally wrong. It is not that the US intended in any way to create these hideous Islamic terror organizations, but when you train and arm one fanatic Islamic movement to fight another, the guns will eventually be pointed you!
On September 11th, 2001, Islamic terrorists carried out a horrific attack killing innocent Americans. The Muslims terrorists that murdered almost 3,ooo Americans did not come from Saudi Arabia or Iran, these were American Muslims who were given the luxury of living freely in the land of opportunity! They were and are free to study, work, live and even become President, but they chose their barbaric ideology over freedom.
Are All Muslims Terrorists?
The answer is an absolute NO and anyone who would say yes is a racist. There are many peaceful Muslims who despise what the radical Muslims are doing.
According to all intelligence services around the world, radical Islam makes up between 15% – 25% of all Muslims. The problem is, 15% – 25% of 1.2 BILLION equals 180,000,000 – 300,000,000 MILLION people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization!
When the United States allies themselves with radical Islamic regimes that represent the 25% of Muslims, they are actually starting the timer for the next bomb.
If there is anything Hitler taught us, it is, there comes a time when we must stop talking and start dropping bombs. There is no treaty or amount of money that can convince extreme Islamic terrorists to betray Allah. There is only one way to make sure 9/11 doesn’t happen again and that is to fight and destroy anyone and everyone who believes that such an attack is justified, moral or a ticket to virgin paradise. Any deals, treaties or partnerships with regimes that believe killing innocent people is the way to go is the fuel that will be used in the next flight to hit……
A message to moderate and peaceful Muslims.
There are some who say you do not exist, I know you do!
Whether it’s my neighbor Ashraf from Bethlehem or Aalimah who is studying law at a prestigious American University, YOU are victims of Islamic terror. The 25% radical Muslims claim they represent you and if you do not shout from the rooftops and support America’s offensive against these groups, you are actually supporting them. If you are not using your freedom of speech to vocally oppose and fight radical Islam, you will be considered part of the problem.
Is that fair?
NO! But neither was the death of 2,977 innocent Americans who died in what Muslim terrorists claimed was the way of Jihad.
I cannot imagine the predicament you are in, but if you want people to see you as the peace loving people I know you are, you must be on all online platforms and universities campuses fighting those radicals who are giving you a bad name!
Here is just one example of an Israeli Muslim who has decided he has had enough of radical Muslims giving him a bad name. Mohammad Zoabi is the key to peace in the Middle East and if anyone; Jew, Muslim or Christian, attack him, I will be the first to stand for his protection as a Muslim, an Israeli and a human being!

It’s been 13 years since I slammed my transmission into overdrive, popped the flashing red light onto the roof of my car and went barreling down half-empty streets in Brooklyn towards Manhattan.
Beside me were a sheaf of papers bearing photos of a girl I didn’t know, who was working in an office on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center. “Maybe someone has seen her,” her terrified parents said. A colleague handed half of the stack to me before getting into his own car to head down the same road.
We both knew it was a long shot but neither of us realized just how long a shot it was. In fact, it was no shot at all. No one ever came out of that pile of busted concrete and twisted metal alive. I know, because I was there.
Too old already to be a firefighter (which I was in younger days), back then I was a volunteer fire chaplain. But I was on my way to work at a local mental health clinic that morning, since I am also a trauma therapist and ADHD specialist in my “other life.” I was listening to the radio in my car when the DJ interrupted the music to make “a special announcement.” Annoying, I thought idly.
A plane had slammed into the World Trade Center, he said. Details to follow. Weird, I thought. “Radar screwed up? Pilot lost control of the plane?” I started to run through the list in my mind. Meanwhile the DJ was doing the same thing on the air with a second person who had joined him on commentary.
That’s ominous, I reflected. Having lived five years in Israel in my younger years, all my red flags went up the more I thought about it.
And then a plane hit the second tower. That’s when I knew this was no accident.
By the time I reached the clinic, patients were calling in to cancel and the secretary had a small television on, with live coverage showing what had happened. “That’s a terror attack,” I muttered, and disappeared into my office. The next call was to the volunteer fire and rescue team coordinator. I saw two patients and the clinic closed early. A sigh of relief and I raced to pick up the flyers: “Have you seen this girl?”
I flashed an ID in order to get into the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, which was blocked off to everyone. Cops were everywhere. “A bit late, no?” I grumbled, whizzing into the tunnel. It opened up into a smoke-filled nightmare.
I couldn’t park anywhere near the site. In fact, I couldn’t FIND the site. The World Trade Center had disappeared. The entire area was wrapped in a thick grey haze for dozens of blocks in each direction. It was impossible to see beyond a foot or two. The Liberty One building was not stable — it was swaying in the breeze.
I finally found a spot about half a mile away. It was still smoky in that area, but at least I could see the address, which I’ve since blocked from my mind. There’s a lot I’ve blocked, in fact, but what I have never been able to block out is the stink that hit as soon as I got closer to Ground Zero.
There is no mistaking that smell.
When I was a child, my Sunday School held a special assembly to educate the students in Grades 4 and up about the Holocaust. On that day we were shown the film, “Let My People Go,” a documentary of the atrocities committed by the Nazis against the Jews. It included a full description by concentration camp survivors of the crematoria and accompanying photos.
Jerusalem district firefighters and rescue volunteers, alongside U.S. Marines and families of 9/11 victims, marked the 13th anniversary to the September 11 terrorist attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead in a special ceremony held in the Jerusalem Hills.
“It’s a very sad day – as firefighters, we can fully empathize with the families of the 343 New York City firemen who were killed on September 11,” Kobi Erez, the spokesman for the Jerusalem Fire and Rescue Services told Tazpit News Agency. “We are here to show solidarity with the firemen and everyone else impacted by this terrible event – those who entered into danger and fire to save lives and were killed doing so.”
Organized by the Keren Kayemeth L’Yisrael-Jewish National Fund, the memorial ceremony was held at the 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza in the Arazim Valley of the Ramot neighborhood in Jerusalem. The memorial plaza, which was inaugurated back in 2009 by the JNF, features the only monument outside of the United States that lists the names of the 2,977 victims of the 9/11 attacks including five Israelis who were killed.
Israeli firefighters and U.S. Marines commemorate 9/11 in Jerusalem’s 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza.
U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro, who attended the ceremony, stated of the JNF 9/11 memorial that it was a “moving” monument, “where we gathered with friends today to remember those taken from us 13 years ago.” He also noted that, “Every year we come together to honor those who fell and those who served, the members of our larger American family whose destinies were touched by these acts of evil.”
Among the firefighters who laid wreaths on the memorial monument, was a new immigrant from the United States, Jacob, who made aliyah during the recent war and joined the Israel Fire and Rescue Services. “It was a very respectable ceremony,” noted Erez. “It was coming full circle to have Jacob with us as an Israeli firefighter laying down a wreath for the American firemen,” he told Tazpit.
“Firefighters share a common language and we are all like extended family,” concluded Erez of the U.S firemen who lost their lives.
The USA has many allies in the world. Many are natural due to common language or culture between the countries (such as United Kingdom and Canada). These allies have deep relationships that extend beyond military ties between the governments. The connections extend to the populations where there are natural flows of business and tourism. The relationships extend to the founding of the countries.
Other American allies developed over time for a number of reasons. A country may have discovered valuable natural resources (such as oil) or the geographical location of the country may have grown in significance because of evolving military dynamics. Other than such practical (sometimes temporary) reasons, the countries may share little in common. Saudi Arabia is such an example.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has one of the most repressive governments in the world. Minorities have virtually no rights and women have few freedoms. Still, the US government chooses to ignore Saudi policies and distrust between the populations, and focuses narrowly on Saudi oil and military cooperation between the countries. US President Obama underscored the point again on September 10, 2014, with an announcement of strategic military cooperation.
On the 13th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/01, it is worth remembering that 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. Countries with few common values will always remain tenuous friends.
More than anything else, the attack on the Twin Towers that we commemorate today symbolizes the end of 2000 years of Western civilization. This date, as it turns out, is also the Hebrew date on which the Oslo Accords were signed.
On the day that the Twin Towers fell, I was in New York and watched the dramatic events unfolding from up close. That week, I wrote an article called, “America Already Lost”:
America has been trapped by the same weakness that has overcome Israel in recent years. It is trapped in a false notion of power, making it incapable of identifying the enemy and fighting it. Consequently, America will lose the battle in the same way Israel now loses.
In the coming months, we will see a lot of military planes take off and land. We will see destroyers and missiles, and millions of tons of TNT exploding in the Iraqi desert and in Afghanistani caves. They will kill thousands of innocent people, but in the end America will lose – because it failed to identify the true enemy.
I wrote the above words 13 years ago. Obama’s current mobilization against ISIS is even more ludicrous and does not stand a chance. At this point, we are much closer to the essential defeat of the West that began on 9/11.
The phenomenon of Islamic suicide bombers made its premier appearance after the signing of the Oslo Accords. From the terror attacks in Jerusalem, this ‘novelty’ spread throughout the world, climaxing on 9/11.
To understand the world-wide process that is taking place, Israel’s central role and the tools we need to win, read the following analysis, written when nobody had ever heard of ISIS.

It is amazing how the Israeli media ignored the tenth anniversary of the Oslo Accords. One would think that the media, always looking for hot topics, would not be able to get out of summarizing and analyzing the significance of the horrifying decade that Israel has suffered since the Accords were signed. But, no. The people pulling the strings of Israel’s media marionettes have no intention of building themselves a defendant’s bench, a place where they clearly have reserved seats.
The 13th of September passed like any other day. Nobody in Israel stopped to draw conclusions, and the fateful Accords continue to claim their daily pint of blood with ever growing lust.
But the 11th of September, the day that the Twin Towers collapsed, merited serious attention. September 11th threatens no one, so Israel’s citizens were treated to a number of media summaries and learned analyses on the massacre in New York.
Both the Israelis and the Americans have a blind spot: Without September 13th, September 11th would not have happened. The Oslo Accords brought about the destruction of the Twin Towers. Without the abominable handshake between Rabin, Arafat and Clinton on September 13, 1993, the Twin Towers would not have collapsed on September 11th, 2001.
The Oslo Accords are usually defined as peace accords that were established to bridge a physical disagreement as to the ownership of a particular parcel of land. That definition is a smoke screen that the “enlightened” public cannot seem to do without. Even the mystery of the attack on the Twin Towers, bereft of any territorial dispute or military or national conflict was defined within the parameters of the blind Western dogmas of tangible discord. The secular perspective can deal with territorial conflicts that can be solved within the narrow confines of the Western worldview. The Americans needed a state and army against whom to fight and Sadaam supplied the merchandise. The Israelis needed a state and army with whom to make peace, so they brought Arafat and provided him with a nation, army and state.
