To our Brothers and Sisters in The Abrahamic Tradition,
Conflict and violence in which lines are drawn along religious parochialisms, pitting adherents of one religion against adherents of another, have no basis within the authentic piety of our traditions. Scores of historical and current analyses demonstrate that the actual etiologies of conflict never stem from the existence of a plurality of religions. This is true, despite the existence of the very real specter of bigotry by followers of one tradition aimed at followers of another (hence the oxymoron “religious bigotry”); moreover, there is the very real “satanic” pattern of psychological manipulation of religious doctrine by strategists to encourage hostility against “the other”. These tendencies must be clearly and firmly condemned by all of us who are trying to draw near to Godliness within our respective “religious vehicles” – all of which uniformly condemn aggression of any sort.
Unfortunately, it appears that hostility-manipulators and psych-war experts not only authored the official narrative that purports to explain the 9/11 attacks, but may even have planned and executed the attacks themselves. The mainstream 9/11 thesis blames the success of the attacks on the combination of two factors: “angry Muslim fanatics” and an “overwhelmed or incompetent domestic security apparatus.” The 9/11 Truth movement categorically rejects this thesis based on overwhelming evidence that 9/11 was ‘an inside job’ as much as it was a foreign attack. The Kean-Zelikow Commission’s official U.S. government account of what occurred within our National Security Apparatus that led to the tragedy is egregiously untrue. No reasonable person who studies it carefully, comparing it to other information from major media sources, government officials, and independent investigators, could possibly believe it. The eminent Christian theologian Dr. David Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor, has just published a devastating critique of the Kean-Zelikow report. Griffin’s book is called The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions. It concludes: “As this book was going to press, I learned that The 9/11 Commission Report had been included among the finalists for the National Book Awards. I would not have been shocked by this news except for the fact that the nomination was in the nonfiction category.”
Griffin’s work, along with Mike Ruppert’s Crossing the Rubicon, Paul Thompson’s The Complete 9/11 Timeline, Nafeez Ahmed's The War on Freedom, and other landmark works of research, document quite convincingly that 9/11 was as much of ‘an inside job’, as one perpetrated by ‘foreign religious fanatics.’ Let us not mince words, by “Inside job” we mean that 9/11 occurred in full cooperation and concert with elements within our own domestic national security apparatus – who continue to liaise on many levels with the so-called ‘militant Islamic networks.’
To those with a sufficient experience and background in the study of history, and a degree of psychological maturity, this deception is not so surprising. We acknowledge the manner in which it was done on 9/11 far outstrips the many similar incidents in history, terribly violent incidents which were framed by strategists of a given nation or enterprise as “assaults upon us”, designed to mobilize specific policies and actions to further a given socio-political or economic agenda. Still, the tragic scale of 9/11 is unprecedented.
Why is 9/11 truth so important? Because the official story of 9/11 is causing senseless killing in the name of religion—killing that is escalating toward apocalyptic proportions. A great many Christians and Jews who still believe the official story— that 19 Muslims led by an end stage kidney disease patient perpetrated the attacks—have fallen into bigotry and hatred of their Muslim brethren, their co-worshippers of God under the prophet Abraham. This hatred reared its head in the torture and rape at Abu Ghaib, Guantanamo, and dozens of other secret US torture bases where innocent Muslims are being subjected to a modern-day Inquisition. More generally, it has led some US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq to murder and abuse innocent people on the basis of their religion. In addition, it has allowed a misguided and tacit public consent to occupy the mainstream American mindset—a consent that accepts violent pursuit of corporate interests (as long as they are euphemized as US interests) despite knowing that millions of lives in nations whose population are predominantly Muslim will be ruined or ended.
Muslims, for their part, are also being led into distrust and hatred for “the West.” Most of the world’s Muslims have serious doubts about the official story of 9/11, and some of them have blamed Jewish/Zionist leaders, or the Israeli-American covert operation tandem, by dismissing 9/11 as yet another “false-flag” operation that was perpetrated and then spun as an excuse to attack “dar-al-Islam.” This thesis spills into distrust and hatred toward all Jews, and all Occidental Christians – the latter being identified with the US. Even worse, a minority of foreign Muslims, most of them young and raised in a milieu that promotes extremism, have uncritically accepted the official story, and because of their socio-economic condition and desperation, have been seduced by some form of “militant Islamist ideology” – an ideology and project not just of fanatics on foreign soil, but one with roots nourished as a covert operations utility by Western corporate imperialist interests, either to be used as proxy offense, or now perhaps as a patsy. These naïve young Muslims may come to admire the apparent success of the “19 suicide hijackers” and could easily be manipulated into trying to imitate them. Fanatics who act in the name of Islam and commit atrocities, whether beheadings or indiscriminate bombings, may find devilish inspiration through the 9/11 mainstream thesis. Exposing the fact that Mohammed Atta, a regular consumer of alcohol and cocaine, enjoyer of lap-dancers, user of call girls and consumer of pork chops, was obviously not a pious Muslim is perhaps the fastest and simplest way to divest hotheaded young Muslims heading toward fanaticism of their dangerous delusion.
By joining together to seek 9/11 truth and discredit as loudly as possible the mainstream 9/11 thesis, Muslims, Jews and Christians can help demolish the dangerous falsehoods that each group holds about the others. Jews and Christians will learn that most Muslims do not admire al-Qaeda, but instead suspect it of being a fraud (as well as a killer of innocents). Muslims will learn that Jews, far from trying to smear and defame Muslims, have the courage and integrity to pursue the truth – one of us (FK) has personally witnessed wondrous changes of heart when it is explained to foreign Muslims that Jews and Christians are throwing themselves headlong into the struggle to show authentic Islam to America, and their eyes widen even more when they learn that 9/11 truth is largely spearheaded by white Americans, many of whom choose to affiliate themselves with Judaism or Christianity. And many will learn that eminent Christians such as Dr. David Griffin, who have put their reputations and perhaps even their lives on the line for 9/11 Truth, are their allies in the fight for peace and justice.
Ultimately, those who are truly conscious of The Divine have always been allies of one another, no matter what how crass the modernist secular humanistic interpretations and misdiagnoses with regard to people of religion – misdiagnoses and interpretations that disguise themselves in a sophisticated or academic veneer, a most fanciful way of completely missing the truth of authentic religion.
No matter how much you know about 9/11—and no matter what you currently believe—please consider joining us in the fight for a real investigation that would establish the truth. And the whole, unvarnished truth is our only objective. We at MUJCA-NET do not know precisely what happened on 9/11. What we do know is that the Kean-Zelikow report is preposterously inadequate. Please join with us in the struggle for truth—a truth that could quite literally save the world.
What motivates us must be clear. This is not about partisanship or religious parochialism. It is about trying as best we can to walk the path of the Prophets and Saints within our traditions. It is about defending authentic religion from those who try to counterfeit it. It is about defending American ideals against those who try to counterfeit them. It is about trying to reflect the qualities of Truth, Justice, and Peace. It is about struggling against legions of currents and interests that oppose 9/11truth, which are the same currents and interests that sustain themselves by promoting fear, hatred, and mutual hostility against “the other.” These legions come in a variety of forms and rhetorical disguises. Sometimes we encounter them as the white skinned clean shaven faces with American names, in suits and ties, who may quote Old or New Testament scripture or the American Constitutional slogans of “national security”, “democracy”, or “enduring freedom.” At other times we may encounter the legions as darker skinned folks wearing regal turbans, flowing robes, and long beards and Middle-Eastern names, who quote Qur’anic verses, and the Islamic phrases such as “Allah-hu Akbar,” or “Jihaad.”
It is about time for those who wish to live in authentic piety to rise and take a stand. Please join us in this effort. If you are at all serious about this venture, there is some required reading. The works mentioned above: The New Pearl Harbor (David Ray Griffin), The Terror Timeline (Paul Thompson), Crossing the Rubicon (Mike Ruppert), plus Le Pentegate by French author Thierry Meyssan should be owned by any who wishes to play an effective role. If you cannot get these for some reason, please let us know and we will try to arrange something. Once you have educated yourself on this issue—the most vital one of our lifetimes—please raise it with others in your local religious community. Also, please join us, wherever you may find yourself on Friday afternoons, in our Day of Prayer for 9/11 Truth.

An al-Jazeera poll taken in October, 2003 showed that 89% of respondents believed the U.S. government committed the 9/11 attacks, while only 11% believed al-Qaeda was responsible. Many Arabs and Muslims have asked the key question cui bono, who gains, and concluded that the answer is Israel. They then (incorrectly) shift the blame to Israelis in general, and Jews in general. If the truth of 9/11 were established with certainty by a genuine no-holds-barred investigation, this whole line of thinking would be undercut, since it would certainly be shown that a limited number of individuals, rather than a whole religious or national group, was responsible.
Atta’s non-Muslim lifestyle has been reported in the Wall Street Journal’s “Terrorist Stag Parties” (10/10/01) and elsewhere in the mainstream media. Daniel Hopsicker’s Welcome to Terrorland shows that several other hijackers were also “Muslim impersonators” who partied at an US Air Force Officer’s Club, spent the night before their mission next door to the National Security Agency headquarters, and were apparently trained to fly at schools run by a CIA-linked drug cartel.
