An American Holocaust
by Christopher Bollyn
The thousands of lives lost in the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center
were innocent victims of a holocaust. The word "Holocaust" derives from the Greek words "holos" (completely) and "kaustos" (burned sacrificial offering) meaning complete destruction by fire. The correct usage and meaning of this word, however, have been distorted by Zionist propagandists, who have sought to trademark the word as a proper noun to signify the loss of Jewish lives in World War II.
"Totality of destruction has been central to the meaning of holocaust since it first appeared in Middle English in the 14th century, used in reference to the biblical sacrifice in which a male animal was wholly burnt on the altar in worship of God," The American Heritage Dictionary says about the word's history.
Holocaust means complete destruction by fire with extensive loss of life as it comes from the Greek holokauston, which means "that which is completely burnt."
"Holocaust has a secure place in the language when it refers to the massive destruction of humans by other humans," according to the American Heritage Dictionary's note on usage.
I personally know of several actual holocausts in modern times in which there were "massive destruction of humans" by fire caused by other humans: the fire-bombing of German and Japanese cities, most notably Dresden on February 13-14, 1945; the massacre of the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas on April 19, 1993; and the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
The entire center of Dresden, the beautiful Saxon capital, was completely consumed by fire on Ash Wednesday 1945 after the Anglo-American fire bombing raids of February 13 and 14, 1945. According to August Kuklane, an eyewitness, some 600,000 people, including many thousands of refugees, had been living in the city center that was incinerated as they slept.
The U.S. mass media does not use the term "holocaust" to refer to the destruction of thousands of lives by fire in the World Trade Center because the word has been usurped by Zionist propagandists. The controlled media in the United States also completely avoids discussing the evidence of Israeli prior knowledge of the 9-11 holocaust.
Although it is extremely unpleasant to contemplate, it must be remembered that hundreds of innocent Americans and other people were literally roasted alive in the upper floors of the twin towers before they collapsed. Besides the fires that were caused by the airplane fuel, there is evidence that there were large amounts of Thermite involved in the destruction of the three collapsed towers. Many people chose to jump from the 110-story towers rather than die from the extreme heat they were subjected to.
The Sunday Herald of Glasgow, Scotland, and Neil Mackay, Scotland's News Journalist of the Year for 2002, could teach American newspapermen something about journalism and what a "free press" really looks like. Mackay wrote an excellent article about the abundance of evidence of Israeli prior knowledge of 9-11. Mackay's piece was published in the Sunday Herald on November 2, 2003:
There was ruin and terror in Manhattan, but, over the Hudson River in New Jersey, a handful of men were dancing. As the World Trade Centre burned and crumpled, the five men celebrated and filmed the worst atrocity ever committed on American soil as it played out before their eyes.
Who do you think they were? Palestinians? Saudis? Iraqis, even? Al-Qaeda, surely? Wrong on all counts. They were Israelis – and at least two of them were Israeli intelligence agents, working for Mossad, the equivalent of MI6 or the CIA.
Their discovery and arrest that morning is a matter of indisputable fact. To those who have investigated just what the Israelis were up to that day, the case raises one dreadful possibility: that Israeli intelligence had been shadowing the al-Qaeda hijackers as they moved from the Middle East through Europe and into America where they trained as pilots and prepared to suicide-bomb the symbolic heart of the United States. And the motive? To bind America in blood and mutual suffering to the Israeli cause.
After being detained for two months, the five Israeli intelligence agents were returned to Israel on "visa violations." In Israel, three of the men discussed what they had been through on an Israeli television talk show, where Oded Ellner (center in photo below) made this revealing comment: "The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event.”
Mackay asks the question U.S. journalists are afraid to even think: But how can you document an event unless you know it is going to happen? "Put together," Mackay concluded, "the facts do appear to indicate that Israel knew that 9-11, or at least a large-scale terror attack, was about to take place on American soil, but did nothing to warn the USA."
The controlled media in the United States avoids the facts of Israeli prior knowledge because it is evidence of Israeli involvement in the terror attacks of 9-11. This is obviously a taboo subject in the Zionist-controlled media. The facts, however, indicate that many Israelis knew that 9-11 would take place. Warnings conveyed on the Israeli-owned Odigo instant messaging system two hours before the attacks were precise to the minute.
Odigo, a company partly-owned and financed by the Israeli criminal Kobi Alexander, had its U.S. headquarters only two blocks from the World Trade Center, yet Odigo failed to pass the warning it had received on to the authorities in New York, a move that would have saved thousands of lives. Two weeks after 9-11, Alex Diamandis, Odigo's vice president, said, "The messages said something big was going to happen in a certain amount of time, and it did – almost to the minute."
The Washington Post briefly reported about the evidence of Israeli prior knowledge on October 4, 2001 on page A-24:
Another possible hint of the plot came two hours before planes crashed into the World Trade Center, when two employees of Odigo Inc. in Herzliya, Israel, received electronic instant messages declaring that some sort of attack was about to take place. The notes ended with an anti-Semitic slur.
"The messages said something big was going to happen in a certain amount of time, and it did -- almost to the minute," said Alex Diamandis, vice president of sales for the high-tech company, which also has offices in Lower Manhattan. He said the employees did not know the person who sent the message, but they traced it to a computer address and have given that information to the FBI.
What is most striking about the media censorship of the Odigo (Comverse) story of prior knowledge of 9-11 is that it was never reported in any of the New York newspapers. The New York Times only published two articles in which it discussed the five dancing Israelis.
The first, "5 Young Israelis, Caught in Net of Suspicion" was published on October 8, 2001 on page F-3. The article suggests that the five Israeli agents were completely innocent:
By some accounts, they seemed to be making light of the tragic situation.
Besides the cash [$4,700 in the socks] and the [multiple] passports, one man had fresh pictures of the smoldering wreckage of the trade center in his camera, images he had captured by standing rather conspicuously on the room of the van.
The Times article names the five Israelis: Oded Ellner, Omer Gavriel Marmari, Yaron Shmuel, and the brothers Paul and Sivan Kurzberg. The article contains an interesting choice of words used by Yigal Tzarfati, an Israeli consul in New York, who referred to the World Trade Center attacks as "bombings": "This is a huge misunderstanding," Tzarfati told the Times. The five Israeli agents "have nothing to do with the bombings."
On November 21, 2001, the New York Times published its second article about the five Israelis in a piece titled "Dozens of Israeli Jews Are Being Kept in Federal Detention." The article by Tamar Lewin and Alison Cowan was published on the day the last two Israeli Mossad agents were returned to Israel and appeared on page B-7:
In New York, immigration officials began deporting five young Israeli moving men who have been in federal custody since Sept. 11. Two of the deportees, Oded Ellner and Omer Gavriel Marmari, landed in Tel Aviv yesterday. The others, Paul Kurzberg and his brother Sivan, and Yaron Shmuel, were expected to fly to Israel today.
The five aroused attention in New Jersey after people noticed them going to unusual lengths to photograph the World Trade Center ruins and making light of the situation. One photograph developed by the F.B.I. showed Sivan Kurzberg holding a lighted lighter in the foreground, with the smoldering wreckage in the background, said Steven Noah Gordon, a lawyer for the five.
As objectionable as their behavior may be, Mr. Gordon said of their long incarceration, ''It's not a crime and they were being treated as if it was.''
The five were asked to take polygraph tests before being allowed to leave. But Paul Kurzberg refused on principle to divulge much about his role in the Israeli army or subsequently working for people who may have had ties to Israeli intelligence, Mr. Gordon said. His client had trouble with one seven-hour polygraph test administered last week, but did better on a second try.
The Forward, New York City's leading Jewish newsapaper, reported on March 15, 2002 that the five Israelis had been on "a Mossad surveillance mission" and their fake moving company was just a "front":
According to one former high-ranking American intelligence official, who asked not to be named, the FBI came to the conclusion at the end of its investigation that the five Israelis arrested in New Jersey last September were conducting a Mossad surveillance mission and that their employer, Urban Moving Systems of Weehawken, N.J., served as a front.
After their arrest, the men were held in detention for two-and-a-half months and were deported at the end of November, officially for visa violations.
However, a counterintelligence investigation by the FBI concluded that at least two of them were in fact Mossad operatives, according to the former American official, who said he was regularly briefed on the investigation by two separate law enforcement officials.
"The assessment was that Urban Moving Systems was a front for the Mossad and operatives employed by it," he said. "The conclusion of the FBI was that they were spying on local Arabs but that they could leave because they did not know anything about 9-11."
However, he added, the bureau was "very irritated because it was a case of so-called unilateral espionage, meaning they didn't know about it."
Spokesmen for the FBI, the Justice Department and the Immigration and Naturalization Service refused to discuss the case. Israeli officials flatly dismissed the allegations as untrue.
However, the former American official said that after American authorities confronted Jerusalem on the issue at the end of last year, the Israeli government acknowledged the operation and apologized for not coordinating it with Washington.
In the days after the attack, an employee who worked at the Mossad-front company, Urban Moving Systems, told the Record (Bergen, New Jersey) that the Israelis "were joking" about the holocaust that had just occurred within eyesight of their office across the river from the World Trade Center:
An employee of Urban Moving Systems, who would not give his name, said the majority of his co-workers are Israelis and were joking on the day of the attacks.
"I was in tears," the man said. "These guys were joking and that bothered me. These guys were like, 'Now America knows what we go through.'"
