Mossad Link Found to One of Key

A NEW ISRAELI CONNECTION to the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001 has recently been unveiled. Buried in a New York Times story on Feb. 19 was the eye-opening revelation that a Lebanese Muslim Arab who has been taken into custody by the Lebanon—which has accused him of being a spy for some 25 years for Israeli intelligence—just happens to be a cousin of one of the Muslims alleged to have been one of the 9-11 hijackers.

Although Ali al-Jarrah was—publicly—an outspoken proponent of the Palestinian cause, it now turns out that he was actually working as a paid asset of the Mossad for more than two decades, betraying his own nation and conducting spying operations against Palestinian groups and the pro-Palestinian party Hezbollah.

The New York Times, reporting on the al-Jarrah affair, revealed this: “It is not the family’s first brush with notoriety. One of Mr. Jarrah’s cousins, Ziad al-Jarrah, was among the 19 hijackers who carried out the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.” The Times added that the men were 20 years apart in age and “do not appear to have known each other well.”

The gratuitous Times suggestion that the two cousins “do not appear to have known each other well” is intriguing, inasmuch as it is an admission that they did, in fact, know one another. And that could be very telling, for there are those who are now suggesting that the older cousin may indeed have recruited his younger cousin as an asset for Israeli intelligence.

The circumspect stance taken by the Times is no surprise, considering the fact that the Times is quite aware of the fact that there have been many sources—including American Free Press—which have alleged that the 9-11 conspiracy was infiltrated, if not controlled outright, by Israeli intelligence from the beginning.

If the younger al-Jarrah was indeed an Israeli asset inside the 9-11 conspiracy, this would not be the first time that a Muslim Arab was involved, acting as a Mossad agent, in an attack on the World Trade Center. As far back as August 3, 1993, investigative reporter Robert I. Friedman revealed in New York’s Village Voice that Ahmad Ajaj, a 27-year-old West Bank Palestinian held in federal custody for conspiracy in the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, may have been a Mossad mole, according to Friedman’s sources.

Ajaj was arrested at Kennedy Airport on Sept. 1, 1992, after he arrived on a Pakistani International flight from Peshawar carrying a forged Swedish passport and bombmaking manuals. He was taken into custody, and subsequently pleaded guilty to entering the country illegally.

Ajaj’s traveling companion was Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, an Iraqi who law enforcement sources say was a “key player” in the first World Trade Center bombing.

And it should be noted that it was Ajaj who was the source of the famed “al Qaeda terrorist manual” that was widely touted by the FBI in the wake of the second World Trade Center attack in 2001. In addition, Ajaj’s colleague—Ramzi Yousef—is the nephew of Khalid Sheikh Mohamad, whom the U.S. government has said was the “mastermind” of the 9-11 attacks.

In this regard, it is also important to point out that, for many years even prior to the first attack on the World Trade Center, there were many figures in Islamic circles who believed that Mohamad and Yousef were actually undercover assets for Israel.

Although the FBI identified Ajaj as a senior intifada terrorist, with links to Hamas (the Palestinian Islamic fundamentalist organization), Kol Ha’ir, a respected Hebrewlanguage weekly published in Jerusalem, said Ajaj was

never involved in intifada activities or with Hamas or even the Palestine Liberation Organization.

Instead, according to Kol Ha’ir, Ajaj was actually a petty crook arrested in 1988 for counterfeiting U.S. dollars out of a base in East Jerusalem. Ajaj was convicted of the counterfeiting charges and then sentenced to two-anda- half years in prison.

According to Friedman, writing in The Village Voice: “It was during his prison stay that Mossad, Israel’s CIA, apparently recruited him, say Israeli intelligence sources. By the time he was released after having served just one year, he had seemingly undergone a radical transformation.”

Friedman reported that Ajaj had suddenly become a devout Muslim and an outspoken hard-line nationalist. Then, Ajaj was arrested for smuggling weapons into the West Bank, supposedly for Fatah al-Islam, a faction of the PLO.

But Friedman says this was actually a sham. Friedman’s sources in Israeli intelligence say that the arrest and Ajaj’s subsequent deportation were “staged by Mossad to establish his credentials as an intifada activist. Mossad allegedly ‘tasked’ Ajaj to infiltrate radical Palestinian groups operating outside Israel and to report back to Tel Aviv.

Israeli intelligence sources say that it is not unusual for Mossad to recruit from the ranks of common criminals.”

After Ajaj’s “deportation” from Israel, he showed up in Pakistan, where he turned up in the company of the anti-Soviet mujahideen rebels in Afghanistan. (Incidentally, Andrew Allen, a wealthy San Francisco character who likes to take on assignments for the CIA to prevent boredom, admitted under oath “running” supplies into Afghanistan. He was also instrumental in destroying Librty Lobby and its newspaper, The Spotlight.)

This could indicate that Ajaj was working for the Mossad, for—according to Covert Action Information Bulletin (September 1987)—the funding and supply lines for the mujahideen were not only the “the second largest covert operation” in the CIA’s history, but they were also, according to former Mossad operative Victor Ostrovsky (writing in The Other Side of Deception), under the direct supervision of the Mossad. Ostrovsky wrote:

It was a complex pipeline, since a large portion of the mujahideen’s weapons were American-made and were supplied to the Muslim Brotherhood directly from Israel, using as carriers the Bedouin nomads who roamed the demilitarized zones in the Sinai. After Ajaj’s ventures with the mujahideen, he popped up in New York and purported to befriend members of a small so-called “radical” clique surrounding the blind Sheikh Abdel-Rahman, who was accused of being the mastermind of the World Trade Center bombing.

On Feb. 26, 1993, the actual day of the World Trade Center bombing, Ajaj was “safe” in federal prison serving a six-month sentence for entering the country on a forged passport. Later, he was indicted for conspiracy in the WTC bombing.

According to Robert Friedman, “If Ajaj was recruited by Mossad, it is not known whether he continued to work for the Israeli spy agency after he was deported. One possibility, of course, is that upon leaving Israel and meeting radical Muslims close to the blind Egyptian sheikh, his loyalties shifted.”

However, Friedman also reported another frightening possibility: “Another scenario is that he had advance knowledge of the World Trade Center bombing, which he shared with Mossad, and that Mossad, for whatever reason, kept the secret to itself. If true, U.S. intelligence sources speculate that Mossad might have decided to keep the information closely guarded so as not to compromise its undercover agent.”

Q24

The above will not come as a surprise to anyone who has thoroughly researched 9/11…

… to the rest it will just be ‘one of those things’.

Thanks for the info, expandmymind.

I agree. Still, 8 years on and many questions have been left unanswered. Unanswered questions spawn new questions.

Without any investigative answers to these questions there will never be any evidence to present in a court room.

But we know nothing about the 9/11 hijackers really, according to the Times (UK) 5 of them are still alive anyway, so forgive me if im not prepared to believe this talk of a huge 'zionist conspiracy' based on the fact that one of the alleged hijackers cousins is an Israeli spy, I just dont see the significance....

This whacks of CT'ers finding links where there are none, and recycling the same old anti-jewish diatribes,

There do appear to be an awful lot of links between Israeli and U.S. companies, some of which it is difficult to tell whether they are beneficial or not. I do think it dangerous to tie Israel to every major event that happens without good evidence, ie the financial crisis, otherwise it can give the impression of the big ‘Zionist conspiracy’/all Jews behind the world’s woes which I do not buy into.

Of course no one is going to accept Israeli intelligence was behind 9/11 based solely on an operative being related to one of the hijackers – that would be a crazy jump to make. Would you be interested to know the Israeli links that really do make you wonder about 9/11?

The only 'Israeli link' that I am really interested in is the fact that Mossad alongside a wealth of Western nations such as the UK sent warnings to the US re a possible terror strike in the months leading up to 9/11. Whether or not that constitutes a 'link' i dont know but it seems strange from hindsight that these links were ignored.

Are you not interested in the Israeli intelligence operatives who the FBI detained in New York on 9/11 for celebrating the Tower collapses?

Not really, like I said, I think the Israelis knew and tried to warn the Americans (as is documented) as did many other countries. I am aware of the incident you refer to and again, i think it is something that barely qualifies as a 'link.' Every country has spies everywhere.

Every country may have spies, though curious that it was only Israeli intelligence arrested at the scene of the crime, only Israeli intelligence on at least one of the flights (look up Daniel Lewin), only Israeli intellignce related to one of the hijackers. Perhaps they are just not very good at their job and get caught out more often than intelligence agents of other countries. :hmm:

Then we could go onto the Bush Administration and the disproportionate number of highly placed Jewish members - Elliot Abrams, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dov Zakheim - all PNAC members to boot and the last three in Department of Defense positions. I’m sure I don’t need to go over another Jewish link - Larry Silverstein.

Anyhow, we know Israeli intelligence would never conduct a false flag attack on another country, especially not American targets…

*cough* Lavon Affair *cough*

Hm...help me out Q24. Why would the Israelis help plan this type of operation (meaning 9/11, not the one you quoted above. That I can see them doing) or even have spies in the U.S.? We're among their biggest supporters and we constantly back them up.

I just think a false flag operation by America's own government is more likely than by a country that as MrRandomGuy stated, recieves pretty much unwavering support from the US. The stakes would be way too high, and the potential gains much too low for Israel to risk such an action

you ask why would israelis do this? i'm not sold on all parts of this conspiracy myself, but as a direct result of 9/11 america and co have been on a mission in the middle east targeting israel's enemies. wars that are no doubt welcomed by the israeli government. say or think what you will but you asked for motive and that most definately could be considered so.

It just doesn't seem likely. If the Israelis did help plan 9/11, then the Palestinians would share some of the blame. I mean, after all the Palestinians and Israelis have been fighting for many years. Why would the Israelis go through all that trouble so that Osama could be blamed? Osama and the Taliban are not their main concern. Their main concern is Palestinian terrorists who are p***ed off at Israel.

If they were really going after Israels enemies specifically, then why Afghanistan and Iraq, why not Syria and Iran... two much bigger threats to Israel..

no one would have accepted a war with iran or syria back then. now its looking more acceptable.

it may be that the 2 wars so far have been a prelude to iran and syria, who knows.

9/11 isn't the cause of going to war with Iran or Syria. And if it was, then we would have gone to war with them soon after instead of 8 years later.

i didnt say it was. i just meant that it makes going to war with they 2 countries more widely accepted now than it would have been back then.

hell i didnt even say that i believed my statement a couple of posts back. i was just saying to anyone that thinks there would be a lack of motive with that particular conspiracy, that there could be motive.

i just found this quote

"All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe ... now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned by the CIA and the Mossad in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan," the Italian ex-premier was quoted by Corriere della Sera as saying.

when theres people who were privy to the kind of info we could only dream about saying things like that ^, is it really any wonder why people believe it?

But nobody accepted the war with Iraq or Afghanistan, we had million people marching in London against it... I'm sure if they'd wanted to the target could have easily been somewhere else, it would have made no difference in terms of social dissent.

yeah fair enough but it was other countries they really had to sell it to. if anything our governments have shown us that they really couldnt care less about what we think and there was no way that we, as citizens, could block the war. but if a large number of important enough countries were against it, things may have been a lot more complicated internationally.

Yeah, maybe if there had been a lot of international pressure... definitely agree with your second sentence tho - its way out of our hands now.
