The State of Israel Cannot Survive for Long
By Christopher Bollyn and Kourosh Ziabari
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, June 28, 2010
Christopher Bollyn is an American journalist and researcher. He
is widely known for his extensive researches on the September 11, 2001
attacks which reveal that Israel has been complicit in planning and carrying
out the terrorist attacks that cost the lives of 2,976 victims and left more
than 6,000 injured. The U.S. government under ex-President Bush introduced
the paramilitary group Al-Qaida the main culprit of the attacks and adopted
an aggressive policy towards the Muslim nations thereafter It also enacted
the USA PATRIOT Act that would enable the U.S. government to search and
investigate the telephone and email communications of the U.S. citizens
under the pretext of discovering and mapping out the possible threats to the
U.S. national security. Bollyn has written on the U.S. – Israel relations
comprehensively and believes that a powerful corporate cartel of Zionists
control and mastermind the large-scale U.S. foreign policy.
What follows is the full text of an in-depth interview with Christopher
Bollyn in which we've discussed the post 9-11 "War on Terrorism" project
devised by the Bush administration, the complicity of the state of Israel in
the 9-11 attacks, the fate of Israeli regime in the wake of its growing
isolation, the stance of United States administration towards Iran's nuclear
dossier and the double standards it exercises with regards to the Israel's
military nuclear program.
Kourosh Ziabari: Dear Christopher; you've
written on the 9/11 attacks and the involvement of the Mossad and CIA in the
attacks extensively. The former Italian President Francisco Cossiga has also
testified that Mossad and CIA were involved in the attacks. Would you please
summarize for our readers the evidence which, according to your research,
indicates that Israel created the 9/11 catastrophe?
Bollyn: The earliest evidence of Israeli involvement in 9-11 was actually
revealed in the news on the very day of the terror attacks and shortly
thereafter, but never followed up in the mainstream media.
First, there was the van of 5 Israelis who were arrested in New Jersey on
9-11. This group, which included two Mossad agents known to U.S. law
enforcement, had been observed videotaping the destruction of the Twin
Towers with themselves celebrating in front of the camera, flicking their
lighters and laughing with the burning towers in the background across the
river. These Israelis worked for a fake moving company, Urban Moving
Systems of Weehawken, New Jersey, which actually turned out to be a Mossad
front operation. Dominic Suter, the head of the phony company, was allowed
to escape to Israel shortly after 9-11 although he was a terror suspect
being investigated by the FBI.
The five Israelis, some of whom refused or failed lie detector
tests, were caught in possession of multiple passports, box cutters, and a
large amount of cash stuffed in their socks. Their van tested positive for
explosives when checked by New Jersey police, at least until the FBI took
over the investigation. When the five Mossadniks were returned to Israel in
November 2001, three of them appeared on a popular television show and
openly admitted that their mission had been to document the terror
attacks. Who had given them this mission was not discussed.
Secondly, there were some 4,000 Israelis who were expected to have been
at the World Trade Center, as per the Israeli foreign ministry and the
Jerusalem Post, who did not show up for work on 9-11. There were text
messages sent on Odigo, an Israeli-owned instant messaging system, warning
of the terror attacks several hours before the first plane hit the
towers. These warnings were evidently sent in Hebrew and warned of terror
attacks at the World Trade Center. Alex Diamandis, Odigo's vice president,
said, "The messages said something big was going to happen in a certain
amount of time, and it did – almost to the minute." The Odigo story
was reported in the Washington Post, but not a single New York newspaper
picked it up. The Post reported that the FBI had sent a team to Israel to
investigate the content and origin of these messages, but the story was
dropped and never investigated any further in the U.S. media. How odd!
Both of these stories were reported, but only briefly and then dropped
into the memory hole. I began my 9-11 research by investigating these
stories. With such clear evidence of Israeli prior knowledge of the attacks,
I pursued my investigation to see if Israelis or Zionists were involved in
other key aspects of the crime or the cover-up, and I found that they were.
Indeed, orthodox Jews and Zionists cropped up at every critical point of the
operation, which I discuss in detail in my book, Solving 9-11 – The
Deception that Changed the World.
The key U.S. official behind the 9-11 cover-up was Assistant Attorney
General Michael Chertoff, an Israeli citizen and son of a Mossad agent.
Chertoff was the head of the criminal division of the Department of Justice
at the time and the top boss of the FBI. From this position Chertoff
managed the FBI's "non-investigation" of 9-11, and supervised the
confiscation and destruction of the critical evidence from the crime scenes,
such as videotapes, aircraft debris, and more than 99 percent of the steel
from the World Trade Center. The destruction of this crucial evidence is a
crime in and of itself.
KZ: You've come to the
conclusion that Israel was the main culprit of the 9/11 attacks; however,
your opponents categorize you as a conspiracy theorist. Is this a fair
CB: A conspiracy is a secret plan by a group of people to do
something harmful or illegal. There is certainly no question that the terror
attacks of 9-11 were planned and carried out by a group of people acting in
secret. A conspiracy theorist in this context would be a person who believes
that a conspiracy is behind the terrorism attacks that started the so-called
"War on Terror." Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have both
stated that an Islamic conspiracy, headed by Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida,
is behind 9-11. Based on this specious and unproven assertion the Bush
administration invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 and began a war of
occupation which the Obama administration has adopted as its own and
continues to fight to this day. President Obama says the U.S. is fighting
the war in Afghanistan because of 9-11.
I, on the other hand, consider 9-11 to be an unsolved crime and have
pursued my investigation based on the available evidence. Since the evidence
indicates that Israeli intelligence had prior knowledge of the attacks and
because prior knowledge of something like 9-11 is indicative of involvement
in the crime, I have worked on the hypothesis that the state of Israel was
involved in 9-11 and have pursued my investigation along that line. That
does not make me a conspiracy theorist.
One of the main reasons I rejected the government claim that Al Qaida was
behind 9-11 is because all the evidence indicates that the Twin Towers and
WTC 7 were demolished with explosives. The plane crashes did not bring down
the Twin Towers and Larry Silverstein's 47-story building, which collapsed a
block away without even being hit.
When I learned in the summer of
2002 that molten iron had been found at the base of all three towers, I knew
I had evidence that the Bush administration's explanation of what had
happened to the World Trade Center was false. This important discovery
revealed that the public had been lied to by the government about what
really happened on 9-11.
The publication of the peer-reviewed paper about the discovery of large
amounts of active super-thermite in the dust of the demolished World Trade
Center by Dr. Steven E. Jones and others in March 2009 provides scientific
proof that an extremely energetic form of thermite, made with
nanotechnology, was responsible for the pulverization of the 220 concrete
floors of the Twin Towers, and everything on them. This is what created the
immense clouds of hot dust that everyone saw on 9-11. Survivors have said
that the dust was burning hot. This is because it contained tiny droplets of
molten iron, which were described and shown in the U.S. Geological Survey
study of the dust. The hot spots that burned beneath the rubble for three
months were hotter than the boiling point of iron and created nanosize
particles that were found in large quantities in the smoke rising from the
pile. These were all clear indications that thermite had been used to
demolish the towers.
Logically, the discovery of chips of super-thermite
in the dust marked the end of the official version as an acceptable
explanation for what happened to the Twin Towers. Neither Osama Bin
Laden nor Al Qaida had anything to do with the creation or application of
the super-thermite that pulverized the World Trade Center. These facts
are becoming clear to a growing number of people. The game is over for
the 9-11 cover-up crowd.
KZ: You introduced Michael Chertoff as the
key person responsible for the destruction of 9/11 evidence. Isn't the U.S.
administration really aware of the fact that, as you believe, Israel was
behind the 9/11 attacks? Have the U.S. statesmen ever referred to the
research carried out by you and other scholars who put forward evidence that
Israel carried out the 9/11 attacks?
CB: In March 2010, Dr. Alan
Sabrosky, the former Director of Strategic Studies at the U.S. Army War
College, said in a radio interview: "It is one hundred percent certain that
9-11 was a Mossad operation, period." Dr. Sabrosky also stated that
high-level U.S. military officers know that Israel did it.
Dr. Sabrosky is, to my knowledge, the first person from the U.S. military
establishment to have publicly supported the hypothesis that Israeli
intelligence was behind 9-11. I have not heard of any U.S. statesman
refer to my research although I am sure there are many politicians who are
aware of it.
KZ: The war on terrorism project was initially set off
following the 9/11 attacks. In other words, the 9/11 attacks played into the
hands of the U.S. administration to launch military strikes against Iraq and
Afghanistan, as alleged state sponsors of terrorism. Is there any third
country which is liable to be targeted next? Is this third country going to
Bollyn: My hypothesis is that 9-11 was an
Israeli-designed "false-flag" operation that was meant to be blamed on Al
Qaida in order to kick-start the Zionist-designed "War on Terror." Actually,
Iran is probably the main target, at least in the minds of the Zionist war
planners. This is because the CIA and the Mossad got kicked out of Iran when
Shah Pahlavi was overthrown in 1979. The foreign oil corporations, big
capital, and their intelligence agencies want to get Iran back under their
I always thought that the name "Central Command" or CENTCOM was a strange
name for the military command that oversees U.S. operations in the Middle
East - central to whom? Iran now finds itself surrounded by U.S.
military interventions on three sides and CENTCOM is based in Qatar, right
in the middle.
Furthermore, Iran has long been the target of a concerted effort led by
the Zionists and the controlled press to impose sanctions in an effort to
weaken the largest independent nation in the Middle East. This is why they
use the issue of Iran's nuclear development, most unfairly, as a club to
attack the Iranian government. The Zionist Axis of New York, London, and Tel
Aviv refuses to accept that Iran is not under their control.
You've published pictures on your website which depict the Jews
demonstrating against Tel Aviv, holding placards that read: "The state of
Israel does not represent world Jewry". Is the controversial regime of
Israel, which is even hated by a large number of its own citizens, going to
survive with the trajectory it has adopted?
CB: No. I don't
see how a small, artificial state run by terrorists and despised by its
neighbors and most of the world can possibly survive in the long term. It
simply is not sustainable. This is, after all, why 9-11 was carried out - to
bring the U.S. military into the Middle East to protect the Zionist hegemony
in the region. Public opinion, however, has turned strongly against Israel
as a result of a long string of Zionist crimes and atrocities. A state
that is so despised simply cannot survive for long.
KZ: The United
States officials regularly reaffirm their commitment to the security of
Israel and disallow the international community to hold her accountable for
the war crimes it commits. Is it possible for the international bodies,
including the United Nations Security Council, to investigate Israel's
criminal conduct independently and put on trial the Tel Aviv officials while
the United States continually supports the Jewish state?
This is the real problem. Zionist influence and control over the U.S.
government prevents the international community from reining in the behavior
of the nuclear-tipped outlaw state of Israel. The U.S. veto in the
U.N. Security Council has effectively protected Israel from sanctions for
decades. But the failure to enforce international law and apply corrective
measures on the state of Israel has resulted in the creation of a
monster-state that is now out of control. Had the system of international
law worked as it should Israel would have been forced to adjust its behavior
and find a way to live in peace with the Palestinians and its neighbors.
KZ: What do you think about the recent massacre of peace activists
aboard the Freedom Flotilla who were heading towards the Gaza strip to break
the siege of the beleaguered enclave? Why did the U.S. and European leaders
keep silent in respect of the vicious assault of the Israel Defense Forces
on the peace activists? Would the international reactions have been the same
if Iran had carried out the attack?
CB: Of course not. If Iran had
committed such a massacre on the high seas it would have been punished
severely and immediately by the United Nations and international community.
Furthermore, if any other state besides Israel were to impose a blockade on
1.5 million civilians causing extreme hardship and suffering, it would be
condemned by every nation in the world. To understand the mild response of
the Obama administration to the blockade and the massacre of the nine
Turkish peace activists we should recall that Rahm Emanuel, the chief of
staff of the Obama White House, was in Israel the week before the attack and
met with Benjamin Netanyahu only four days before the Israeli assault on the
Freedom Flotilla. It should be noted that Emanuel, an Israeli citizen and
the son of an Irgun terrorist, runs the Obama administration.
When it comes to the European response, we now have a weak centralized
European Union that discourages unilateral actions taken by the member
states. Furthermore, European foreign ministers remember very well what
happened to Anna Lindh of Sweden who had called for a European boycott of
Israel. She was murdered in broad daylight in Stockholm.
KZ: In one of your recent articles, you've reviewed the bankruptcy of three
Icelandic banks and related it to the Israeli regime's plundering of
Iceland's economy. Would you please elaborate on this for us and our
CB: The bankrupting of Iceland's three biggest banks in the
fall of 2008 was caused by a foreign-run operation which involved people
connected to the Mossad and the most extreme right-wing politicians from the
Likud, including Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Olmert. The First Lady of
Iceland also happens to be an Israeli. The operation basically gained
control of the privatized and deregulated banks and puffed them up as it
sucked money out of them in the form of billions of dollars in unsecured
loans. The privatized banks were simply loaded up with debt and pushed
off a cliff. The Icelandic banks were lending huge amounts of money to
dodgy Jewish financial tycoons left and right - without any collateral of
real value. The largest Icelandic bank to fail, Kaupthing, for example, lent
more than $2.5 billion to the Tchenguiz operation, which is run by Victor
Tchenguiz in Israel. Robert Tchenguiz, who received billions from
Kaupthing, was also one of the largest stockholders in the bank.
The plundering of the banks of Iceland is very similar to the Bernard
Madoff scam, the bank failures, and the huge bail-out that occurred at the
same time in the United States. Madoff was the chairman of the Sy Syms
business school at Yeshiva University. His partner, the late Sy Syms,
was also a long-standing director of the privatized Israel Discount Bank of
New York, which has a branch in Switzerland that operates under Swiss bank
secrecy laws. Kaupthing also had a bank in Luxembourg that had a Swiss
branch in Geneva. When Kaupthing collapsed, their Luxembourg subsidiary with
the Swiss branch were taken over by David Rowland, an offshore financier who
works closely with Israeli intelligence. When the Icelandic banks collapsed
under a mountain of debt, the national government and international lenders
were called in to absorb the losses while the bank robbers escaped with the
money they stashed in secret bank accounts in Switzerland.
KZ: The United States frequently attacks Iran over its human rights record
and what is claimed to be the undemocratic nature of the Iranian regime.
Should we take the Washington's accusations for granted, we come across to
the identical situations in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt in
which the human right records are far more disappointing and deplorable than
Iran; however, the United States maintains close ties with them and never
states a single word in protest to their repression of the public freedoms
and violations of human rights. How is it possible to justify this double
CB: This is the typical double standard seen in U.S.
foreign policy. Any behavior is acceptable from a regime that is
willing to play ball with big capital, big oil, and Israel. On the
other hand, any regime that refuses to go along will find itself ostracized
and penalized. The Hamas government of Palestine is a good example. Hamas
won the democratic election fair and square, but because it refuses to be
accept Israeli demands and conditions it has been ostracized. Meanwhile,
Mahmoud Abbas is treated as the president of Palestine by the United States
although he has not been elected and simply extends his term like a tyrant.
Iran is treated in the same way. It is ostracized because it pursues its
own national interests and challenges the Anglo-American and Zionist
hegemony in the Middle East. This is why the U.S. uses its influence
to sanction Iran for its nuclear development program, which is legal and
monitored, while completely ignoring Israel's secret nuclear arsenal. We
should remember that BP, the oil company that has mucked up the Gulf of
Mexico, originally started as the Anglo-Iranian Oil company, with the rights
to virtually all the oil of Iran. A BP tanker was the first ship to load up
with Iraqi oil after the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq. These are
the people who wage war to steal the assets of sovereign nations.
KZ: What's your anticipation for the prospect of the Israeli
regime? It is being isolated in the eyes of nations around the world while
being supported by the U.S. and European governments. Will the sponsorship
of the U.S. and its EU allies for the state of Israel come to cease one day?
Will the Washington – Tel Aviv ties eventually end in altercation and
CB: The state of Israel is an artificial state that is
protected and supported by the United States. This support is due to Zionist
influence and corruption of the American political system. Were this to
change and were Israel to lose the support of the U.S. government it would
be unable to survive. The current government in Israel is composed of
the most extreme elements of Israeli society, which is increasingly becoming
more orthodox and Russian. Zionist moderates have been pushed aside by the
most aggressive and unscrupulous extremists. Those who could have made peace
have been killed and replaced by terrorists who know only war.
The people of the United States are fed up with these costly and
disastrous wars in the Middle East. A growing number are becoming
aware that we have been conned into these wars. The growing divide between
the people who know they have been lied to and the government who covers up
the truth about 9-11 is simply not sustainable. The United States is sitting
on a political fault line that may slide at any time. When the truth of 9-11
reaches a critical mass there will be a political earthquake that will sweep
the criminals from power. This is why the discovery of super-thermite in the
dust of the World Trade Center is so important, because it marked the end of
the government version of 9-11 as an acceptable explanation.
When the deception and lies about 9-11 are exposed and the Zionist and
Israeli culprits revealed, Israel will be left without a friend in the
world. The racist and militant Zionist regime of Israel is bound to pass
from the stage of history just like the communist dictatorships of the
Soviet Union and the apartheid regime of South Africa. Such deeply unpopular
regimes often fall without a shot being fired. They simply collapse because
they are rotten to the core and unable to stand any longer.
