The Reality of September 11th

They came from a cloudless azure sky, nineteen hate bred messengers of a warrior creed, and they brought America a taste of Hell. For it was Hell we saw unfold before us on that day as its gates opened as if to welcome the perpetrators of an act so huge and so awful it has few which rival it in the history of our world.

Some, for the sake of their political cause, have sought to downplay the magnitude of what occurred on that September day nine years ago today. “More have died elsewhere” they say, and it is true that there was greater loss of life in Nagasaki, Hiroshima and in Dresden, there were single days in Rwanda which saw greater carnage and it is also true that many more die in earthquakes and other natural disasters. However, there is a context to these things, and it was the context of 09/11 which sets it apart from acts of God and from the crimes of other men.

09/11 came unprovoked and without warning, its aim was not to end a war, but to start one and the deaths of those who died were its purpose. More than anything it was an act of hate, pure, unadulterated and visceral hatred, frighteningly a hatred which has not abated but one which has grown. It is the hatred which inspired the attacks on America in 2001, and what they tell us about where we are in history which make them stand out from so many of the other horrors our world has seen

The acts could be compared to the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 or the Massacre of St Bartholomew in 1572 in terms of the the unprovoked and unexpected nature of the attacks, yet even those monstrous crimes had a political purpose beyond the glorified indulgence in carnage for its own sake. To find real equivalence we need to go further back, back to the second half of the first millennium following the birth of Christ, and it is there, again, that we find Islam.

We are told that the brutal mass-murderers who hijacked those four planes that day, intent on slaughter few can bring themselves to contemplate, do not represent the real Islam. However, to believe that it is necessary to shield one's eyes from the truth. Even if we ignore the joyful dancing Muslims in the streets we all saw that day, we need only visit Jihadi websites or listen honestly to the words on Imams preaching in Damascus, Iran and Yemen to hear the hatred for us and to see how the murderers of September 2001 are celebrated, to understand how those events were then, and are still now, perceived in those parts of the world from where they sprang.

Less clear however, is how we now perceive it for that has taken many forms, and the event has been moulded by many to fit more comfortably with their prejudices and agendas. It is actually easier than one might imagine to project ones own storyline onto the events of 09/11 in part because the events involved were so spectacular, so surreal they feel unreal. Often when I watch film of the attack I have to pull myself up and remind myself that “this really happened”.

It seems that not everyone is capable of doing that. So the cold blooded murder of so many has become the stuff of a thousand fantasies.

There are, of course the conspiracy theories, we have all heard them “the US government was behind it”, “MOSSAD was behind it”, “the buildings were brought down by controlled explosions”, “all the Jews working in the World Trade Centre were told to stay home that day!” and, of course, “The Pentagon was hit by a missile, not a plane”, on and on they go, the truth hijacked in order to blame a favourite villain or group by those incapable of saying to themselves “hold in, this really happened”.

Worse than the conspiracy theorists are those who have come to resent the victims because of what they stand for. Like a defence lawyer desperate to exonerate his guilty client, it is necessary to present those who suffered at his hand as less worthy, less deserving and less real. The apologists for these killers have done the same to their victims.

In the weeks following 09/11 I recall reading a letter to a newspaper in which those who perished in the twin towers were referred to as “3,000 plump Westerners”. Most likely the line was written by someone who was themselves a plump westerner and it is hard to contemplate the degree of self hatred which it required to write such an ugly line. The purpose, of course, was to suggest that those who lost their lives in the attacks were somehow less deserving or worthy than thin people from the third world, for whose plight we are all, including the victims of 09/11, as Westerners held equally culpable.

This, of course, leads us to the “We brought it on ourselves” accusation. This argument, as we all know is based on the idea that America's support for Israel, America's general foreign policy and our insufficient respect for Islam effectively provoked supporters of Islam into attacking America.

This accusation, of course, ignores the fact that one of America's main acts of foreign policy prior to 09/11 was to bomb European Christians in support of Muslims in Bosnia and Kosovo, and begs the question as to what previous victims of murderous Islam, such as Kenya and Tanzania, had done to piss off the Mullahs.

Those making such allegations, mostly academics, historians and media hacks, might wish to consider their own culpability when they actively reinvented a false history and deliberately provoked resentment against the “Great Satan” for the furtherance of their political ideology.

What happened in New York nine years ago today, should be seen what it was, a clash of cultures and an attack upon the west by a culture which hates us, not for what we have done, but for what we are and for what we have always been. We were attacked by a culture which has been at war with us for fourteen hundred years and which hates us now no more and no less than when Muhammad wrote "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" (Koran 8:12) and "So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them”

Islam has been at war with us since the seventh century and it is only just over three hundred years since we confronted them at the gates of Vienna. Our cultures are entirely incompatible, however, this time we have ignored history and allowed our enemy to come amongst us. They have come amongst us in their millions, and used the trappings of our society against us.

Yes we did bring the attack on our society upon ourselves, but not in the way our critics claim. We have allowed our enemies to live amongst us and plot against us from within. We have allowed those who hate us to come close enough to strike us. Could, for instance planes hijacked in Kabul or Mogadishu have attacked New York and Virginia with the same ease as flights from Newark or Boston?.

It was Islamic Terrorists who attacked America in September 2001, theirs was an act of dreadful brutality, cruelty and mass murder. More than that, it was almost certainly a warning of what is to come. If it was, as I believe it was, then we are now well beyond the point where we can keep preventing the next attack.

A powerful and extremely well-presented argument, Sarah, for which many thanks.

It is almost as if we have been stupefied by those who would seek to appease this sickness that presents itself as a faith, to make allowances where none can reasonably be made.

The unpalatable truth, to the lefties, the intellectuals, and those who desperately hope they might be the last to be consumed by this monstrous and hideous thing called islam, is that islam itself is the enemy. Until we take up that fight, with every means at our disposal, these verminous apologies for humankind will continue their regn of hatred and terror.

This is not the world I want to see my grandchildren inherit - it is time to clean out the corruption.

Thank you again, dear lady.

Perhaps you should look at the site Incog man, which you have linked to, before you make up your mind about 9/11. I don't doubt the malevolence of Islam but the evidence of what happened to the buildings at the World Trade Center make the government's version impossible to accept. I think that it is the implications of this that you don't want to believe. Where did the super thermite in the dust come from?

Macaw said...

There are many versions of what happened that day. Some of the many questions asked makes sense. The one flight that was brought down by passengers - the hole in the ground does not match the size of the aircraft. The debris found also did not match the aircraft.

This is what I have found on the internet. Also the plane that struck the pentagon - having viewed the forum (or something similar as I cannot recall), they all say it was impossible for the plane to hit the building.

I am not disputing the views of the professionals. I have done a hell of a lot of research on this subject - from NORAD to war games to ATC as well as the "dead terrorists" who were seen alive weeks later.

To be brutally honest, I feel that there were powers that be that knew what was going to happen. As to who these people are as well as what the motives were, I shall leave unanswered as the intrigue is so overwhelming it boggles the mind.

I firmly believe that the planes were taken over by terrorists as I also firmly believe that mass murder took place. Who the terrorists were, I leave to speculation (the actual persons). Who the organisation(s) was, I have no idea, but I do believe that Islam was part of it.

Dr.D said...

The official version, as reported by the US government, has far too many inconsistencies in it. Also, the hasty manner in which the debris from the crime scene was removed and permanent destroyed prevented any sort of proper analysis of what really happened. It was apparent that this hast was purposeful.

The web site Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth,, contains a wealth of well done technical evaluations showing many of the contradictions with the official story. It also presents rather conclusive evidence that the towers were brought down by demolition charges.

There is also much interesting discussion of Building 7, the third building to fall much later in the day. Again, this was almost certainly a demolition job. Please read the many fine papers at that site for yourself.

This does not say that the Arabs had no part in the project, but it pretty well indicates that they did not do it alone. There are no allegations made as to who else may have been involved.

Please see Operation Northwoods to further open your eyes.

Operation Northwoods, or Northwoods, was a false-flag operation plan that originated within the United States government in 1962. The plan called for Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other operatives to commit genuine acts of terrorism in U.S. cities and elsewhere. These acts of terrorism were to be blamed on Cuba in order to create public support for a war against that nation, which the US had recently labeled as communist under Fidel Castro. One part of the Operation Northwoods plan was to "develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington."

Operation Northwoods included proposals for hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. The plan stated:

"The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere."

Several other proposals were included within the Operation Northwoods plan, including real or simulated actions against various U.S. military and civilian targets. The plan was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the U.S. government's Cuban Project anti-communist initiative, Operation Northwoods was never officially accepted and the proposals included in the plan were never executed.

Controlled demolition proved by experts.

You cannot after watching this video still claim that the towers came down because of the planes.

The footage of WTC building no. 7 is especially damning.

Thank you for this balanced and illuminating article, Sarah.

Like Dr D and others who've commented, I have doubts about the official version of events and concerns about questions that remain (I think) unanswered 9 years on and maybe never will be answered e.g. like the incomplete passenger lists that contained no Arab names (and insufficient names where an Arab could have passed himself off as a Hispanic).

That said, I draw attention to the following, which to me underlines Islam's guilt as much as if the official version of 9/11 was correct.

Note that the writer's warning was vindicated by the events of July 7th 2005, where we are in no doubt about the identity of the culprits or their religion.

Writing to The Telegraph, September 14th 2001, C. Wilstead of Slough Berks., stated:

“Sir, sitting in a classroom during a registration period, I saw a class of some 27 students, aged 15, cheering and punching the air in glee at news of the new York tragedy while making fun of the American national anthem. I was filled with horror. These were mostly British-born children whose families watch satellite television from Pakistan, not English television to which they turn solely for Eastenders. I realised that they do not consider themselves to be part of Western culture or society although they are benefiting from British schooling. Who has taught these young people to hate in this way – and why? Never mind worrying about enemies from overseas; we seem to have them growing in our own backyards.”

I'm about to send you something else about 9/11 by email, which may also be of interest.

Macaw said...

I read about that somewhere. I also read about the Nazis in 1939 that burn down the Reichstad (I think) and blamed it on the Poles. I could be wrong about the Poles, as I am writing from memory.

I doubt if we shall ever get to the bottom of 9/11 with regards to who knew what etc. All I know is that everyone has to answer to G-D one day.

Curt said...

Of course Sarah, 911 was a terrible event and one must take into account the vast rumor-mill that the internet is. Still, considering the intrigue that our (the US) government has been involved in in the past, one cannot discount the very large possiblity of its involvement here either.
Now, 68 years after the fact, there is evidence that our government knew about the immanent attack on Pearl Harbor. We have actually sent our troops as advisors on BOTH SIDES (without public knowledge, of course) of some wars. Saddam Hussein was originally installed and supported with the aide of the CIA. Air America was a CIA front company. There is no end to the intrigue and mischief that our government has been involved with. The FBI murdered 80 children at Waco, Texas. Randy Weaver's wife was shot in the head while holding her baby by a BATF (that is "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms") agent because her husband had been involved with some white supremacist group, though ostensibly they were arresting him for having purchased a shotgun (from a BATF agent, unawares) that had been cut 1/4" too short-by the agent. So, are the "powers that be" here in the USA capable of such a monstrous crime? Who can say for sure; but as usual, the government's story does not square up with the evidence and it has been involved with some heinous acts in the past.

I suppose you beleived the BBC CNN et al when their ventriloquist dummies blurted out on 11/11/01 that the NY fire department found the passport of one of the pilots on top of the rubble?

Muslims probably were involved but a more sinister devious element was surely behind it or colluded with them at best. How did the 3rd tower drop in what appears to be a timed and controlled demolition plan.

Who are/were the devious bastards who made billions out of it. Such easy short shrift work pretty much like this George Soros who creamed millions out of black Wednesday in 1992 and went to erm "play tennis" afterwards.

Congratulations Sarah you are now a fully paid up member of the Conditioned Neo-Con Club.

If 19 Muslim jihadists caused the devastation of 9/11 then the moon is made of cheese.

Ive followed your blog for a while now but I cant take any more of your ignorant, anti-Islam, pro-Zionist, NWO b/s. Your heart is in the right place but you have nt a clue about where the real power lies and who is directing it.

Well, lets hope for America’s self esteem, there was a conspiracy. If not, that means a ragtag band of terrorists successfully drew the most powerful military in the world into a totally unnecessary war with Iraq and having seen off the Taliban, using only special forces in 2001, turned that war into a never ending conflict by introducing regular ground troops. The cost of those wars alone helped bring the American economy to its knees, but also, those 19 hijackers scared a nation of 300 million people into supporting not only those endless and fruitless wars, but security measures and government expansion without precedent in their size, expense, and absurdity. Have so ‘few’ in history ever caused such absolute havoc?

Anonymous said...

The comment by Againstthewall was a bit vicious but I suppose he softened it a bit. However after viewing the collapse of the 3rd tower at Incog man recommended by brian boru ,I was truly "gobsmacked". I never knew about this. It was a controlled demolition, nothing else but. So I would be interested in your thoughts on a possible conspiracy.

Ronbo said...

Excellent article, Sarah!

The real conspiracy on 9/11 were the 19 Muslims who true to the degenerate KORAN murdered 3,000 innocent Americans for the greater glory of the evil Arabian Moon God Allah.

In the nine years since this dastardly and cowardly attack, the USA and her allies have invaded and conquered two Islamic countries, and yet many Muslims still think the West is not serious about winning this war.

In the words of Churchill in 1942 after two important Allied victories in WW II, "This is not the beginning of the end, but it is the end of the beginning."

Don't worry Johnny Jihad - The West is coming for your worthless body and soul. Prepare to die.

There's no doubt whatsoever that the Israelis knew it was going to happen. The arrested Israelis seen celebrating the event on the bridge admitted, after their rapid release, admitted on Israeli TV that they were there to quote "witness the event".

How can anyone, in the light of this, deny that, at a minimum, The Israelis knew in advance?

Of course there's a huge leap from this to saying that they actually planned the whole thing, still less that the incompetent Bush administration was involved.

As already stated here by other commentators the 9/11 story doesn't hold water when held up to the light of day and there was almost no way that this could have been done without the help and knowledge of the American government. Also America was not attacked, the world trade centre was recognized as an international center which represented almost every country in the world.

Anonymous said...

Sarah, I love your blog and you write beautifully, but don't be fooled by the 9/11 truthers who would have you believe even the wildest conspiracies about that fateful day. Popular Mechanics Magazine debunked the 9/11 wingnuts a few years ago. Just google Popular Mechanics debunks 9/11 myths to read the original article.
Popular mechanics assembled a team of engineers,scientists, demolition and military experts to do the debunking. The editors at Popular Mechanics even expanded their research into a book "Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts." The folks who blame 9/11 on the USA tend to hate America just as much as the hate filled Muslims.

Anyone with any knowledge at all of rudimentary physics, physics 101 - would know that such a story as we are asked to believe - the official 9/11 story is impossible. It simply could not hav occurred. d=g/t is a simple enough explanation. It would have fallen slowly, large parts breaking and hitting those below and takin well over 10 seconds. It would NEVER have caused a building, any building to almost evaporate into such fine dust particles that incidentally are full of military grade thermitic materials. See the research written in the journal of chemistry and physics by the University of Copenhagen's Chemistry Department which proves the towers were brought down by controlled demolition. Just google "journal of chemistry and physics, use of nanothermite in WTC, univ of copenhagen" and read it. I forgot the leader's name but it's Dr. Nils something or other. Good luck
