The Israeli connection
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you must, I think I’m just being practical. How much of a coincidence can accept as reasonable? “Al-Qaida” has just been said to have blown up a hotel in Jordan which is said to have been popular with Israelis. Scores of people got killed, but no Israelis, because they were warned beforehand as reported in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
Those with a good memory might recall that Bibi Netanyahu also escaped the damaging effects of the July 7 bombings in London because Israeli intelligence asked him to leave his hotel just in time. And when the towers in New York got struck on 9/11 employees of the Israeli firm Odigo had been receiving advance warnings to stay at home. There were also share dealing irregularities which might give a clue about who had prior knowledge and I bet it was Osama – but then those trails were never properly followed.
In my mind there are two possible scenarios. Either the Israelis consider non-Israeli lives of so little importance that they don’t bother sharing their warnings with them, or they had a hand in the bombings from the start. Now you will cry anti-semitic in addition to conspiracy theorist, but before you get carried away by the notion that those poor persecuted Israelis can do no wrong, have a look at their history. From the blowing up of the King David hotel during the days of the Irgun and Stern terrorist gangs under the British mandate, to the first hijack in modern history, to the bombing of the US diplomatic centre in Egypt (Lavon Affair) and the attack on American navy personnel on the USS Liberty, they’ve not been too squeamish with sacrificing the lives of others, even their closest allies.
They will do anything that furthers their cause. And what could better further their cause than having the whole world in fear and awe of Arab and Islamic terrorism?
