A blog dedicated to exposing some of the more ludicrous theories concerning 9/11, and discussing the people responsible for such nonsense. With occasional forays into 7/7 'truth' and similar curious beasts.
At the London 9/11 truth meeting at the Indian YMCA on Monday 18th February, an interesting leaflet was distributed.
Entitled "9/11 Truth To Stop War and Terrorism" it invites people to join the 'Truth Revolution'. Under the heading "Who is challenging the official account of 9/11" some 20 politicians and celebrities are listed.
But how many of these people actually support the 9/11 'truth' movement? One person listed is George Galloway MP. Galloway is not a supporter of 9/11 truth, has criticised the truth movement and as this thread on the UK 9/11 truth forum shows, he has made it perfectly clear to 'truth' activists that he regards their theories as bunkum.
Why then does his name appear on a 9/11 truth leaflet?
Given how notoriously litigant Galloway is, we do hope the truth movement removes his name from future leaflets.
It was interesting to see two 9/11 Truth activists invade the pitch at this weeks match between Queens Park Rangers and Burnley.
A report of their action, and discussion about it, can be viewed here.
Alistair Campbell, the Burnley supporting target of their ire, deserves to be hounded for the rest of his life for the role he played in the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq. Unfortunately pissing off football supporters by holding up a match, is probably not the best way to go about it. Especially when those same supporters, if they do look into the full cause being espoused, will be hostile.
Start invading football pitches waving banners about 9/11 truth, and you will soon be calling for the police to protect you, not moaning when they arrest you.
The quote below comes from an article on a UK Arab website called AlArab Online.
"As regards the 9/11 events, it is now believed that the plot to destroy the WTC Towers and Pentagon was actually prepared by the Jews who wanted to use this card so as to exploit the situation which afterwards resulted in invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq."
The writer, Zaheer-ul-Hassan, offers no evidence for his assertion, we are simply expected to believe him. Welcome to the world of 9/11 Truth Zaheer, we are sure people will take to you very quickly!
An interesting insight into the 9/11 Truth Movement comes courtesy of the UK and Ireland groups forum.
9/11 Cultwatch writer Paul Stott has had the words "9/11 Truth Critic" added to his profile on the site by moderator Tony Gosling. It seems visitors to the site cannot be allowed to make up their own minds on the veracity of debate, but instead have to be reminded as to whether someone is onside or not.
All very sad. Can anyone imagine the fuss Gosling et al would make if a website marked them in a similar way? The screams would be rattling windows from here to Amsterdam.
