Neither Jewish morality nor Jewish tradition can be used to disallow terror as a means of war. We are very far from any moral hesitations when concerned with the national struggle. First and foremost, terror is for us a part of the political war appropriate for the circumstances of today, and its task is a major one: it demonstrates in the clearest language, heard throughout the world including by our unfortunate brethren outside the gates of this country, our war against the occupier.~ Yitzhak Shamir

What's up with the Simon Wiesenthal Center at the Harman hearings? That has to be the ultimate "Jews did 9/11" meme. Unfortunately, all of this generalization about "the Jews" or "the Zionists" appears to protect the suspected perpetrators because some of the leading suspects happen to be Jewish, and can therefore play the antisemitism card to thwart a serious investigation. Silverstein is not a suspect because he's Jewish. He's a suspect because his actions are suspicious. Lewis Paul Bremer III is Catholic, as far as we know, and he pretty much indicted himself when he showed up on TV at noon on 09/11/01 talking with objective detachment about terrorism in the abstract, 3 hours after two buildings housing the offices of 1700 of his employees were turned to dust. We're not anti-semitic, we're anti-billionaires who think it's OK to murder, en masse, the people who trust them the most, and use it as a pretext to wage a faux holy-war against one of the poorest countries in the world.
Yes, we believe some of these billionaires used their connections within the world Jewish community to perpetrate the attacks. But that doesn't mean we believe the attacks are representative of the Jewish people or of Israel. Richard Bruce Cheney isn't Jewish, and we believe he was integral to the 9/11 false flag operation. Lots of Jews died on 9/11, so we don't see how anybody can possibly blame it on "the Jews".
Most people don't realize that the Israeli far right has roots deep in fascist ideology. It's one of the dirty little secrets of history, but not only were the right-wing Zionists of the pre-state era very much birds of a feather with other fascists, they were also not averse to cutting deals with the likes of Hitler, at the expense of "their own" people.
This is a letter to the editor of the New York Times signed by a long list of prominent Jewish intellectuals condemning the fascist faction of the Zionist movement.
New York Times, December 4, 1948
TO THE EDITORS OF THE NEW YORK TIMES:
Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.
The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States.
Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin’s political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.
Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin’s behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement.
The public avowals of Begin’s party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.
Attack on Arab Village
A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base. On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants—240 men, women, and children—and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem. Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin.
The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of the Freedom Party.
Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority. Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model.
During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community. Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.
The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They have reclaimed no land, built no settlements, and only detracted from the Jewish defense activity. Their much-publicized immigration endeavors were minute, and devoted mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots.
The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a "Leader State" is the goal.
In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin’s efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin.
The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.

And here is a revealing exposé on the fascist heritage of
the f___ing stupidest guy on the face of the earth.
In October 1997, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) honored [Douglas J.] Feith(pictured left) and his father, Dalck Feith, at its annual dinner. The organization praised the Feiths as "noted Jewish philanthropists and pro-Israel activists" and awarded Dalck a Centennial Award "for his lifetime of service to Israel and the Jewish people," while Douglas received the "prestigious Louis D. Brandeis Award." Before he immigrated to the United States during World War II, Dalck Feith was a militant member of Betar, a Zionist youth movement founded by Ze'ev Jabotinsky, an admirer of Mussolini. Betar, whose members wore dark brown uniforms and spouted militaristic slogans modeled after other fascistic movements, was associated with the Revisionist Movement, which evolved in Poland to become the Herut (Tnuat Haherut) Party, which later became the Likud Party.

Quite to the contrary of what was artfully insinuated by Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the 9/11 Truth movement is not fascistic antisemitism. We are anti-fascist. Something which the Simon Wiesenthal Center professes to be.
The connections between Benjamin Netanyahu, Larry Silverstein, Ronald S. Lauder and Uzi Arad are worthy of our attention. In this context.
