I am in Bollyn's camp but for reasons beyond his bigoted research.
(ST AUGUSTINE, FL) - I became acquainted with author Christopher Bollyn over a decade ago when he misused my research on the Ginossar scandal. If you recall, Yasir Arafat stole over $300m from his people and put it into Swiss bank accounts with the help of Israel's PLO liaison, Yossi Ginossar. By the time Bollyn had abused my research, Israel made Arafat steal the dough. When, livid, I confronted him about the exploitation, he replied to me, "How could Arafat use that kind of money from his hovel in Gaza?" Those are the kind of ethics that are in the back of my mind as I review his new book, Solving 9-11. (www.bollyn.com)
Bollyn is a writer for deeply anti-semitic journals like Spotlight and The American Free Press. The opinions of his book, that Zionists were the force behind the 9-11 disaster, are becoming near gospel in the extreme Right community. You'd better not ignore them or risk facing a horrible future for Jews, because he is not completely wrong.
Yes, you heard me.
But he does the classic deadly spin, blaming all Zionists for the questionable behavior of one group, Labor Zionism. What he forgets is that their opposition, the Irgun, were expelled from the Zionist movement in the thirties and fought a civil war with the Labor Zionists until the late forties. Or that barely 10% of today's Israelis support Labor Zionism or their values. Or that Labor Zionism has declared a new war against the different Zionism of the religious Jews and has brutally expelled thousands from their homes. Nope, to Bollyn all Zionists are cut from the same cloth, are lumped together in one murderous pile, and 9-11 was thus, a Jewish crime. And so, despite some serious research within, Solving 9-11, is classic hateful anti-semitism and should be rewritten or seriously re-edited, lest it never be taken seriously.
And parts of it should be. Bollyn accuses all Zionists of fomenting a false flag event on 9-11 in order to get Arab terrorists to take the rap. That led immediately to American troops in Afghanistan, followed by a little delay, with an attack on Iraq. That, according to the author, was the Zionists' plan, to get America and its allies to fight its foes for Israel. To prove this is old Zionist tactics, Bollyn begins with the attack on the Liberty:
"I had also studied the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty and had seen how the US government had covered up the truth of the Israeli military attack on the unarmed Navy vessel off the coast of Egypt in 1967." I had also studied the Liberty attack and reached a different conclusion:
