Anti-Zionism, Anti-Jewishness, Liberalism and 9/11 Truth
Jerry Coyne posted a very good article on how anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiments are engendered among Muslim Arabs, but that somehow this is all too easily shrugged off by liberals (a group with which both Jerry and I identify). Since I'm also a 9/11 Truther, I have an added burden, since all too many 9/11 Truthers are quick to blame the events of 9/11 on the Mossad, the intelligence agency of Israel. There's virtually no evidence that they were involved. For them to be involved would have been a very unwise, risky endeavor. Had they been discovered, it would have spelled disaster for Israel. The only non-risky way to be involved was with the cooperation of the U.S. military and intelligence community. But if the U.S. military and intelligence community wanted to accomplish the events of 9/11, then they certainly didn't need the help of the Mossad to do it. I judge it very unlikely, then, that the Mossad was involved.
