Why Did The September 11 Attacks Happen?
by Wayne Blank
It's not that the political leaders don't know that, it's just that for them to publicly admit it would have serious political consequences in relations with the Arab nations - a political minefield at the best of times.
The same sort of denial produces the paradox that the US proclaims that its two "best allies" in the Arab Middle East are Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, while Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are the two nations that produced all of the September 11 hijackers (Osama bin Laden was himself born in Saudi Arabia; he is almost certainly hiding today, at the time of this writing, in the frontier region of Afghanistan and Pakistan). But Saudi Arabia has Big Oil, and Pakistan has The Bomb, so the politicians and diplomats all proclaim that the September 11 attacks were an "attack on Freedom" - a very appealing patriotic slogan to the folks at home who have to send their sons, daughters, husbands, wives or themselves off to war, and a statement that doesn't cause diplomatic problems in the rest of the world. It keeps many people happy, even though it's not true.
The reason for choosing New York as a target city is also often overlooked. An attack upon Washington was a logical choice, any national capital would be, but why New York? Why not Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles or any of the many other great US cities with prime targets? Answer: New York has the highest Jewish population of any city on earth, approximately 2 million Jews (and the United States owes much of its greatness to the fact that there are so many Jews who call themselves Americans, by birth or naturalization). Again, that is simply a statement of fact.
The US military personnel who bravely gave, or who are yet to give, their lives in battle in Afghanistan and Iraq died, or will die, not in the defense of the United States, but in the defense of the United States' defense of Israel (Saddam Hussein's fatal mistake wasn't attacking his Arab neighbors, as he did in the 1991 Gulf War; it was his continuing to threaten Israel after George W. Bush got command and control of the US military). Very few of the many who know that have the hutzpah to say it (and I just got myself into a mountain of trouble for writing it). That does not lessen their sacrifice; it in fact makes it greater, if you understand who "Israel" actually is today, on a national level in Prophecy (see the Fact Finder question below), apart from what "Israel" means spiritually (see Physical and Spiritual Israel).
The modern State of Israel could have, and perhaps should have, been called the modern State of Judah because it is the people of Judah, not the people of Israel, who founded it in 1948, and it is the people of Judah, Jews, who have fought numerous bloody wars in defense of their nation over the last more than 50 years (against the very same people who committed the September 11 attacks against the US). It was the people of the Kingdom of Judah who returned from the Babylonian captivity in the fifth century BC and it was their descendants who again returned in 1948. This "Jewish State" called "Israel" distinction was plainly stated by David Ben-Gurion on May 14 1948 when independence was declared:
"we hereby declare the establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine, to be called the State of Israel"
The people of the Kingdom of Israel, the so-called "Lost Ten Tribes" never returned from their exile to Assyria (see The Galilee Captivity), not in the fifth century BC and not in 1948. That's why they're called "lost," not because they don't exist, but because the overwhelming majority of them don't realize who they are because for most people, "history" is nothing more than a matter of their own lifetime.
The people of "Israel" today have other names for their nations, and even though their nations have become "melting pots" of many people, that doesn't change who they were founded by, or who they are as political entities. One example: every US President's ancestry, from George Washington right to George W. Bush, can be traced back to the British Isles - every single one; Washington's ancestors and Bush's ancestors are today buried in English cemeteries only miles apart - there is no "melting pot" when it comes to those who founded the US, or who have always filled the office of its President (the same ancestry holds true for John Kerry if he manages to win the upcoming election, or win it more than Albert Gore did the last one). Most, if not all, US Presidents are also of British royal blood e.g. George W. Bush is descended from centuries of British royalty as far back as King Henry I, the son of William the Conquerer. People can deny it, they can refuse to know it, but the truth is inescapable.
If you understand the most basic Biblical truths, such as that "while all Jews are Israelites, but not all Israelites are Jews" (see "When Israel Became Israel and Judah" below) and if you have taken the time to trace the footprints of history, you will arrive at an amazing, and correct, conclusion - the United States, and Britain, don't just support Israel, they are Israel. Want proof? See the Fact Finder questions below.
Fact Finder: (a) How did Israel become two independent kingdoms, two nations? (b) How were the United States and Britain involved in the founding of the modern state of "Israel" i.e. Judah? (c) What historical proof is there that Britain and the United States were founded by the "Lost Ten Tribes" of Israel?
