What Remains Must Be the Truth:
September 11 Revisited

Paul J. Balles argues that, revisiting the question of who
benefited from 9/11, "it becomes perfectly clear that Israel alone had
reason to plot and execute” it. But he says that Israel couldn't possibly
have executed such a plan without help from the US authorities and that a
process of elimination "leaves only the Zionist neo-conservative civilian
leaders of the Pentagon” as Israel’s accomplices.
Today, with both
domestic and international problems, we tend to forget about the unresolved
truths of yesterday that got us into the situations we’re involved in now.
Important truths about 9/11 remain hidden. Who really benefited from 9/11?
We forget that Israel was/is the major beneficiary of 9/11. How did
Israel benefit? Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, believed that Iraq
could have weapons of mass destruction; and Israel wanted Iraq neutralized
before it had a chance to use WMDs against Israel.
their occupation of Palestine, Israeli hawks have wanted to rid Palestine of
the Palestinians. However, as long as Palestinians remained in the occupied
territories, an Iraqi missile strike that would kill more Palestinians than
Israelis was kept at bay. So long as Iraq possessed a capacity to develop
WMDs, it would be impossible for Israel to eliminate the Palestinians. Thus,
control of Iraq facilitated Israel's ultimate desire to completely evict the
How did 9/11 fit into the Iraq-Israel scenario? It
provided the clarion call for the so-called war against terrorism. Without
9/11, the US had no excuse for invading Afghanistan. The battle against
Al-Qaeda and bin Laden was the precursor to the invasion of Iraq; and the
trumped up connection between Iraq and Al-Qaeda provided the excuse for
Considering again the question “who benefited from
9/11?” it becomes perfectly clear that Israel alone had reason to plot and
execute the disaster that hit The World Trade Centre, the Pentagon and the
four flights involved in that fateful day in 2001.
couldn't possibly have executed such a plan without help from the US
authorities. Who would provide the means for accomplishing that genocidal
The process of elimination leaves only the Zioncon (i.e.
Zionist neo-cons – a term created by James Petras) civilian leaders of the
Pentagon who were secretive enough to keep their plans under wraps. To
violate the top-secret code of silence would be cause for trial and a death
sentence for treason, if not to an assassination made to look like a
The Pentagon was the only body that could have kept the
North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) from performing its duty to
scramble fighter jets to intercept the hijacked planes on 9/11. They could
have stopped the hijacked jets from performing their mission. They didn’t.
Leading civilians in the Pentagon figured among US leaders serving
Israel. Zioncons Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle and Douglas Feith were more
devoted to Israeli interests than to those of America. At best, they acted
as "dual loyalists".
What remains is not as improbable as it might
have looked at first. What remains are Pentagon Zionists with a motive.
Combine that with the history of deception of both Mossad and the American
Zioncons and with a proven willingness to sacrifice American lives for their
There's no reason to believe that the Arabs involved in the
hijacking, who were not the expert flyers with the skills required to
accomplish the flying feats of 9/11, had a clue about where they would end
up in planes pre-programmed and guided by remote control. All the hijackers
had to do was lose guidance to ground control in the hands of the Pentagon
Since the supposed Arab hijackers couldn't even fly small
planes solo, according to their flight instructors, and since remote control
devices had proven effective, the only conclusion remaining is: 9/11 was
planned and executed by Mossad and the Zioncons to justify military action
in the Middle East for the major beneficiary, Israel.
