My Letter to Obama: “Build a Mega-Mosque ON Ground Zero to Atone for 9/11 Inside job!”

5  August 2010

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear President Obama,
In your Cairo speech of June 4th, 2009, you greeted the Muslim world with “as-salaaamu alikum,” meaning “peace be with you.” In that speech, you said:
I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
Mr. President, if you genuinely seek a new beginning, you need to revisit the moment when things went massively, wildly wrong: The morning of September 11th, 2001. In your Cairo speech you had this to say about 9/11:
I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: al-Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al-Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. . . . These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.
Mr President: The vast majority of the world’s Muslims, and more than 100 million Americans, take issue with your alleged “facts.” Polls show that upwards of 75% of Muslims globally, 60% of American Muslims, and 36% of all Americans either believe or suspect that 9/11 was an inside job designed to trigger the wars that followed. A growing scholarly literature shows that the 9/11 doubters are right, and that 9/11 was a false-flag operation whose authors framed innocent Muslims, including Bin Laden, as patsies. (Incidentally, Bin Laden has NOT claimed credit for 9/11. On the contrary: Before his death in December 2001, he denied and deplored the 9/11 attacks, calling them un-Islamic, and asserting that they were carried out by “American Jews” as documented in my book Questioning the War on Terror.)
If you want to be re-elected and earn an honoured place in history, Mr. President, you need to end the phony “war on terror” and the 9/11 big lie on which it is based. To do this, you must appoint a 9/11 Truth Commission staffed by such independent 9/11 skeptics as Drs. David Ray Griffin, Peter Dale Scott, Steven Jones, and Richard Gage…along with others, such as Sen. Max Cleland — the one honorable original member of the 9/11 Commission — who can be trusted to act with integrity.
When the findings of the Truth Commission exonerate Muslims and implicate the enemies of Muslims, as those findings undoubtedly will, you will be faced with a truly historic dilemma: How to offer repentance and reparation for the U.S. government’s crimes against Muslims that followed the 9/11 false-flag attacks. The U.S. government is guilty of genocide against the Muslims of Iraq, Palestine, and (arguably) Afghanistan; it has launched unconstitutional wars of aggression against these nations and murdered more than one million Muslims, all based on the 9/11 big lie. How can such monstrous crimes be atoned for?
The best means of repentance and reparation, in my view, would be for the U.S. government to fund and build a new mosque at Ground Zero covering the entire World Trade Center site, with twin minarets looming above in memory of the Twin Towers’ destruction by genocidal Islamophobes. The minarets should be more than 700 feet in height, which would make the new structure the world’s tallest mosque. This mosque should house a 9/11 Truth Museum documenting the evidence that 9/11 was carried out by U.S. and Israeli insiders, not Muslims.  It could include such artifacts as the laughably bogus “last will and testament of Mohammed Atta,” pieces of airplane wreckage from earlier crashes that were planted at the alleged 9/11 crash sites, WTC structural steel samples showing melting and evaporation caused by explosives, videos and other objects seized from the Israeli Mossad team that filmed and celebrated their colleagues’ destruction of the World Trade Center, unflattering wax figures of such 9/11 villains as Dick Cheney, Larry Silverstein, and Benjamin Netanyahu, and samples of nanothermite-laden World Trade Center dust.
Even in the radically different political atmosphere of a post-9/11-truth world, some will undoubtedly argue that the U.S. government should not build a mosque due to the Constitutional separation of church and state. But in fact, the proposed project would not violate the Constitutional prohibition on favoritism to any particular religion, because the U.S. government and the bankers who own it have already spent trillions attacking Islam. Giving back a few billion in the form of a great mosque at Ground Zero would be a minimal symbolic gesture towards setting things right, and would not in itself overcome the preponderance of US government actions unconstitutionally discriminating against Islam. Additionally, it would follow the precedent set by many nations including the U.S., all but one of which were not directly implicated in the Holocaust, which have paid trillions in direct or indirect reparations to the Jewish state of Israel and other Jewish agencies.
Thank you in advance for supporting this worthy project, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Asia Times: Iran gains as Arabs' Obama hopes sink

    By Jim Lobe

    Aug 7, 2010

    WASHINGTON – United States President Barack Obama has suffered a sharp drop in popularity in the Arab world over the past year, and Iran may be reaping the benefits, according to a major new survey of public opinion in five Arab countries…

    Only 20% of respondents in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) now view the US president positively, compared to 45% who did so in the spring of 2009, according to the 2010 Arab Public Opinion Poll conducted by Shibley Telhami of the Brookings Institution and the Zogby International polling firm.

    Moreover, negative views of Obama have skyrocketed – from 23% to 62% – since the last poll was conducted in April-May 2009. The new findings were based on interviews with nearly 4,000 adults in the six countries between June 29 and July 20 this year.

    When respondents were asked to name the world leader they admired most, Obama's standing was less than 1%. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was cited most often (20%), followed by last year's top pick, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (13%), and Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad (12%).

    Erdogan's rapid rise to the top – he was cited by only 4% last year and never mentioned in the 2008 survey – was due to his outspoken denunciation of the 2008-9 Gaza war waged by Israel and the Turkish role in the aid flotilla to Gaza that was intercepted by Israeli commandos at the end of May, Telhami noted.

    Much of the disillusionment with Obama appears related to his failure to make progress in achieving a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, according to Telhami, who has conducted eight previous surveys of Arab opinion since 2000.

    Asked what policies pursued by the Obama administration they were most disappointed with, 61% of respondents in the new poll identified the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. That was more than twice the percentage of the next-most-cited example, Washington's Iraq policy (27%).

    "This is the prism through which Arabs view the Untied States," Telhami said, referring to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

    Iran appears to have benefited, at least indirectly, from Arab disillusionment with Obama, the poll results suggested.

    While a majority of respondents (55%) said they believed Tehran's nuclear program was aimed at developing weapons – a charge denied by Iran – nearly four out of five respondents (77%) said the country had the right to pursue the program – a whopping increase of 24% since last year.

    Support for the program was strongest by far in Egypt and Morocco and weakest in the UAE, where a strong majority said Iran should be pressured to halt it.

    Conversely, only 20% of respondents said they favored applying international pressure on Iran to curb its nuclear program. That was down from the 40% who took that position one year ago.

    "Overall, there is very little support here for the notion that Arabs are secretly yearning for the US to attack Iran," wrote Marc Lynch, a Middle East expert at George Washington University, whose blog on has a wide readership.
