On this, the 15th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, 3000 plus
military and intelligence personnel, pilots, engineers, architects, and other
professionals have spoken out against
the official account of 9/11.
The evidence against the official account of 9/11 is
America's wars, justified by 9/11, have killed more than one million Muslims; thousands
of Americans. Many more have been maimed, wounded, and made homeless. About 20 veterans
commit suicides daily. Civil liberties have
eroded. The wars have contributed significantly to our $19 trillion debt.
Polls show America, along with Israel, is considered the
biggest threat to world peace.
While Muslims are the biggest victims of 9/11, American Muslim leaders have not only
failed to speak out against the official account of 9/11, they have prevented Muslims
who do from being heard. They have failed to examine the evidence, and/or enter into
dialogue with those who have and are speaking out.
The internationally recognized Muslim scholar, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, has written that "putting a
curb on dissent or criticism, or upbraiding dissenters, is not the Islamic way. The
method of Islam is to listen to opposite viewpoints and then attempt, by well reasoned
argument, to remove the grounds for dissent."
The vice-president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA -- largest Muslim
organization in North America) has, without examination, accepted the official account of 9/11.
ISNA's position is supported by officials of the Council on American Islamic Relations
(CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), All Dulles Area Muslim Society
(ADAMS) -- organizations often cited by
mainstream news media.
"Dissent," a quote attributed to historian Howard Zinn, "is the highest form of
By failing to examine dissenting views, and "by well reasoned argument ... remove the
grounds for dissent", Muslim leaders are violating tenets of Islam. They are
collaborating in America's unjust wars.
One of the foremost authorities on Islam, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, has
written: "According to Sufism, the supreme goal of human life is to attain Truth,
which is also Reality, the source of all reality, and whose attainment, as also stated
by Christ, makes us free, delivering us from the bondage of ignorance."
"He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His
reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally
unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what
they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion... Nor is it enough that he
should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state
them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them
from persons who actually believe them . . . he must know them in their most plausible and
persuasive form."--John Stuart
