What did Bibi know?

Did former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu know about the London blasts before they occurred? Anti-war's Justin Raimondo investigates the claims and discovers the allegations, subsequent denials and unanswered questions. Netanyahu was in London on the day of the attacks and scheduled to appear at an economics conference.

Raimondo explains:

"Netanyahu was no doubt a target of the bomb plot – why else would the terrorists bomb an underground station directly below the hotel where the investment conference was going to take place?

"My short book, The Terror Enigma: 9/11 and the Israeli Connection, shows that Israel wasn't behind the 9/11 attacks, as many in the Arab world allege, but that they did have some knowledge that a terrorist attack was about to take place on American soil and somehow neglected to tell us about it."

No, Ant, you're not self-hating. You just happily publish the conspirazoid ravings of an anti-Semitic loon like Dennis "Justin" Raimondo.

How low can you go? Sheesh...

If the Islamic world really cared so much about their Palestinian brethren, why would they go about trying to take out the Israeli Minister of Finance, rather than providing concrete assistance to Palestinians in Palestine of a more constructive order than just reward money for blowing themselves up? Seems kinda bass-ackward and reductionist to me.

The Palestinians' loss of land/homes may well be an injustice, but hardly the greatest of the 20th Century to be sure, and other populations have gotten over various injuries and resettled elsewhere. Of course, considering that other Arabs actually can't stand Palestinians - they're to Gulf Staters what Puerto Ricans are to New Yorkers - and don't want them in their own countries (witness how Assad dealt with them in Syria), one sees that it's much easier for Islamics to keep them in misery as leverage against the Jews and as a political release for the masses.

And Simon said: '...and other populations have gotten over various injuries and resettled elsewhere.'

I suppose if the Japanese had invaded and occupied Australia and forced our population into Timor, I suppose Simon would have said, 'That's just the way the cookie crumbles! Get over it!' And pigs might fly!

How easy it is to be dismissive when someone else is doing the suffering.

Fair enough Dennis, but the fact is, history has happened -- you can't go around unmaking it, or engage in wishful thinking while ignoring the very real internecine facts on the ground in the Middle East.

while the palestinians where loosing their property so where an equal number of jews in arab countries. Meanwhile in the indian subcontinent tens of millions of muslims and hindus where abandoning everything in a desperate attemt to get to their own countries amidst violence that makes the palestinian issue merely trivial. 2 years earlier three million or more germans where deported, violently at times from eastern europe, czekoslovakia, romania and hungary.

'amidst violence that makes the palestinian issue merely trivial'

It is a trivial mind that can make such a statement. Not racist exactly, just stupid. If size impresses you, we could, by extension, imagine your family brutally murdered and say that, compared to Palestinian sufferings, yours was 'merely trivial'.

You aren't capable of making such a calculation so your contribution to debates such as these will never amount to more than barracking. Still, it's a free country, so do your worst.

Young Lib aside, I'd love to engage this topic of why the Islamists think the Palestinian cause would be best served by blowing up the Israeli Finance Minister. It seems like a pretty long bow for Antony to draw (though if it's true, would it also mean that all the complaints that the attack was the result of the Iraq war are specious).

glen -> yes i agree with you. To the palestinians their conflict is anything but trivial. But in the great scheme of things what was happening to the palestinians was happening to millions of others at the exact same time. These days we dont hear of german refugees from east prussia, or Hindus from Hyderabad simply because they where given the opportunity to rebuild their lives. The new state of India did not put the refugees from the new state of Pakistan into refugee camps on a faulty preface that they where a different ethnic group and demand a new state for them.

But this is exactly what has been done to the palestinians. In lebanon they are prevented by law from leaving the refugee camps or even joining the ranks of the middle class by becoming doctors or engineers. This is done because thats the only way of making sure the palestinian issue exists, the only reason the refugee camps exist is because the arab countries make it impossible for most to leave. This pattern is repeated in every arab country.

Simon -> When things like this happen certain members of the political spectrum both left and far right immidiately look for the israely connection. Ie; israely spies involved in 911.

With Netanyahu being coincidentally in the same country they found their link. At least thier not claiming that he personally placed the bombs.

The sentiments expressed here by Simon and young-lib brigade are breathtaking in their insousiance, their amorality.
This is what has become of centuries of Jewish morality, converted into an ersatz Nazi aryanism.
Simon says that 'history has happened'. Well actually, it's happening this minute as the Wall keeps slicing through more Palestinian livelihoods, while Simon and the young-lib brigade applaud from the sidelines.
This I take it is the Western values that are under threat from the barbarians.
Excuse me while I puke.

Yes, the term 'barbarians' is rather loosely thrown about. Like beauty, who is a barbarian is in the eye of the beholder!

What a shame we couldn't view everyone on the planet as human beings rather than trying to divide groups into those who are 'good'; and those who are 'bad'.

If we got rid of religion and nationalism, it would be a good start.

Anon,
Either post something even vaguely intelligent, or don't post that filth again here.
