Honestly, sometimes one just has to throw back his/her head and have a hearty laugh at some of the “news” propaganda being disseminated! After Iran’s President Ahmedinejad made another statement recently implicating the USA and Israel in planning and carrying out the 9/11 terrorist attacks, “Al Qaeda” purportedly issued an indignant statement repudiating Ahmedinejad’s ‘conspiracy theories’.
Basically what “Al Qaeda” said was this (my summarization, not an actual quotation): “We have been in competition for the hearts of Muslims worldwide, and we won. Iran is jealous of our victory and wants to steal our thunder, depriving us of our glory. They spread these conspiracy theories in order to deprive us of our glorious victory.”
As the Yahoo News article linked above pointed out, this “statement” from “Al Qaeda” bears a striking resemblance to a satirical skit produced by the Onion News Network in 2008. It sounds suspiciously like a US or Israeli Intelligence Agency production to discredit Ahmedinejad and so called “conspiracy theories” by having “Al Qaeda” insist that it did indeed do the terrible deed. Those Intelligence Agencies knew very well that most people, being unfamiliar with the Onion “News report”, and hearing the story from ‘official Al Qaeda’ sources, would immediately accept it without question. Perhaps unfortunately for those ‘Intelligence Agencies’, the Yahoo News report did link to the Onion ‘report’.
I realize that I would be considered a “conspiracy theory nut” by most people, so anything I say is automatically discredited. Nevertheless, perhaps just for the fun of it you will bear with me in presenting two or three possible scenarios with regard to this indignant statement from “Al Qaeda”.
(1) Let’s suppose first that this was an actual Al Qaeda statement. But Al Qaeda knows very well that they didn’t perpetrate this terrorist event; so why would they want to indignantly claim that they did do it?
The answer is fairly easy to see. Although they didn’t carry out the attacks, they’re quite willing to accept responsibility because of the “prestige” it gives them with certain people with a very perverted bent of mind. The USA is giving Al Qaeda credit with being able to penetrate the defense systems of the world’s only “superpower”! That certainly makes them a very powerful group of people; especially since they could accomplish this feat while having to hide out in caves in Afghanistan. In fact, according to this story, Al Qaeda was able to make a fool of the “superpower” USA! What better recruiting propaganda could an organization have? To have this story challenged by Iran’s President (as well as a great number of people all over the world, including the USA) could undermine their efforts to recruit new members.
(2) On the other hand, though, one could object that “Al Qaeda” would be equally able to use as propaganda the idea promoted by “conspiracy theorists”. If those “conspiracy theories” are true, and the USA and Israel did deliberately conceive, plan, and carry out those vicious attacks with the intent of planting false evidence to blame them on “Muslim terrorists”, this would be very useful for stirring up indignation against the USA and Israel. Al Qaeda could say, very accurately: “You see how morally and spiritually bankrupt the USA and Israel are? They’re willing to carry out murderous acts against innocents – even their own citizens – in order to provide a ‘motive’ for attacking Muslim countries! Join us in seeking to overthrow those followers of Satan!”
So why would “Al Qaeda” want to repudiate those “conspiracy theories”? Obviously, they wouldn’t; because whichever ‘theory’ one adheres to as regards 9/11, Al Qaeda would be able to ‘spin’ it in their favor for recruitment.
(3) So I go with a third scenario. I have made clear in previous posts (here and here for instance) that I am convinced that the ‘official story’ of ‘Muslim terrorists’ carrying out 9/11 is completely untenable; and that there is strong evidence to support the idea that the USA and Israel conspired to commit these atrocities as a ‘false flag’ operation – updating and carrying out a very similar plan from the 1960s (called “Northwoods”) which had targeted Cuba, but was never implemented. So what if “Al Qaeda” does not exist as we think of it (a worldwide terrorist organization of ‘Muslim extremists’); but is rather a CIA/Mossad construct which they can activate whenever they wish to perpetrate false ‘Muslim terrorist’ attacks, and then have ‘Al Qaeda’ claim responsibility in order to keep up the antipathy toward those evil Muslims and their awful Islamic religion?
Yeah, I know: I’m a real nutcase! 😆 But please bear with me for a bit, and then laugh all you want. Consider that the name “Al Qaeda” in common Arabic usage means “the toilet” or “the toilet seat”. (See for instance this article beginning with the 7th paragraph. They’re short paragraphs.) It’s true that the literal meaning of the words is “the base” or “the seat”. But this is similar to English phrases like “the John” or “the head”. While John is a very common English name for a male, if you say “the John” without qualifying it by a phrase like “the John I knew would never do such a thing”, virtually any English speaker (at least in the USA) would recognize it as a reference to “the toilet”. The same is true of the phrase “the head”. If you just say the two words “the head” without qualification (like “the head of our organization”, or “the head of the Catholic Church is the Pope”), most English speakers (or at least most Americans) would immediately think of “the toilet”. With that in mind, what American group would deliberately refer to themselves as “the John” or “the Head”? Can you imagine an Arabic organization deliberately naming itself “Al Qaeda” (“the Seat”)?
If “Al Qaeda” was the construct of an Intelligence organization such as the CIA, though, it’s quite conceivable that they would be unaware of the colloquial use of that term, and think “the base” was an appropriate name for the organization. Or on the other hand they might be quite aware of the colloquial meaning of “Al Qaeda”, and consider it very funny to name their fake ‘Muslim terrorist’ organization “the toilet”! 😀 It was no doubt easy to come up with an ‘official’ reason for the name for the benefit of those unfamiliar with Arabic, while secretly chuckling at what they knew to be the actual significance.
Although we are frequently warned about “Al Qaeda” recruiting, training, and using radical Muslims for terrorist attacks, more and more the FBI in the USA is openly and proudly acknowledging that their “sting operations” are actually responsible for finding and responding to those radicalized Muslims in order to use them in ‘fake’ terrorist attacks. I have written a couple of articles previously about such FBI incited “terrorist attacks”: “FBI Incites Muslim Terrorism” and “Are ‘Muslim Extremists’ Bombing Churches and Mosques?”.
Another such incident was reported yesterday. Rezwan Ferdaus, a Massachusetts resident who has a Bachelor’s degree in physics, had contacted a Federal Agent who was ‘pretending’ to be an Al Qaeda operative. This ‘pretend’ Al Qaeda operative (and others) then ‘assisted’ Ferdaus in plotting an attack on the US Capitol and the Pentagon. The FBI operatives were convincing enough that Ferdaus never suspected they weren’t ‘real’ Muslims and ‘real’ Al Qaeda operatives. If the FBI is able to fool genuine Muslims, how much easier is it for them to fool the general populace who are very ignorant about Islam? It’s no doubt enough for most people if someone just says a couple of catch phrases like “Death to America!” and “Allahu Akbar!” Throw in a few more references to Allah and Shariah, and most people would be easily fooled. It would take a good bit more to fool a genuine adherent of Islam, I’m sure. But the FBI is able to carry off the deception.
They’re good enough at it to fool ‘radicalized Muslims’ time after time; and they have even been known to be good enough at their deception to cause Muslims attending Mosque services (including Imams) to report them to the FBI! How’s that for irony? 😀 FBI agents get turned in to the FBI, by Muslims, for instigating terrorist activities.
It would seem that whenever these ‘radicalized Muslims’ in the USA seek to contact ‘Al Qaeda’, they wind up contacting ‘fake’ Al Qaeda representatives. One wonders: where is the ‘genuine’ Al Qaeda which is supposedly so desirous of obtaining new recruits? Or are those ‘fake’ representatives actually the genuine article, because the ‘Muslim terrorist’ Al Qaeda doesn’t exist?
I, of course, can’t say for sure that there’s no genuinely “Muslim” Al Qaeda; or that there couldn’t be actual ‘radicalized Muslims’ unknowingly working for the ‘fake’ Al Qaeda (FBI/CIA/Mossad) performing real terrorist acts (not just the fake acts which we see so often these days in the news) The FBI would of course not identify its collaboration with any actual terrorist acts; those acts are ‘false flag’ acts actually attributed to “Muslim terrorists” – in keeping with those old “Northwoods” plans and the 9/11 atrocities – although there might not be any genuine Muslims involved at all. Those FBI and Mossad agents are quite able to pull off the events themselves, as they have in the past (the King David Hotel bombing in Jerusalem in 1947, and the Lavon Affair in Egypt in 1954 – both carried out by Israeli agents disguised as Arabs – for instance).
So the FBI/CIA/Mossad can set up fake terrorist acts using genuine ‘radicalized Muslims’; or they can set up actual terrorist acts using actual radicalized Muslims; or they can set up actual terrorist acts using non-Muslim agents disguised as Muslims. They are also quite capable of disseminating radicalized interpretations of the Qur’an and hadith in order to provide angry Muslims with a seemingly legitimate rationale for terrorist acts. I put nothing past the US and Israeli governments and their Intelligence and Military agencies.
Therefore, when I see articles like the one saying ‘Al Qaeda’ repudiated President Ahmedinejad’s “conspiracy theories”, I have to laugh because the deception is so obvious for anyone who has eyes to see. It’s just funny that they would take an Onion production and pass it off (in a modified form) as genuine.
I am also disgusted and deeply angry with the current moral and ethical bankruptcy of my government and its agencies (generally speaking – I’m sure there are good representatives who are not a part of the corruption, but it at least appears that they are few and far between). But I will not let their ungodliness and unrighteousness cause me to resort to ungodly and unjust actions. If I can cast my vote for someone I believe is genuinely decent, I will do so. Otherwise, I will refrain from voting and pray for the coming of the Mahdi and/or Jesus Christ (or the Maitreya Buddha). Meanwhile, I will do my part to at least attempt to expose the corruption that exists in my government.
May the knowledge and glory of God soon cover the earth.
