Interestingly, alarm over Islamic fundamentalism actually occurred at about the same time that Reagan called for the dismantlement of the Berlin Wall, formally concluded on October 3, 1990, followed by the official collapse of the Soviet Union on December 25, 1991. With Soviet Communism gone and the Berlin Wall dismantled, the State Department would either be forced to create another enemy or decrease their defense budget to about half of what it had been which would really cut into the elite’s profits. Shortly thereafter, the first Gulf War was devised to purportedly protect the oil resources of the Middle East against so-called “rogue states and nuclear outlaws.”  Islamic fundamentalism, our latest enemy, replaced Communism.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf (CFR), the man behind the proposed Muslim community center two blocks from ground zero, came to the U.S. with his family in 1965. In 1997 he founded the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMS), a tax-exempt foundation. Its mission statement states, “We collaborate with other faith-based organizations to build relationships of trust through dialogue and education, honoring the diversity of faiths, sharing commonalities, and celebrating differences.”  Interestingly, ASMS is funded by the Rockefeller Brothers; the Carnegie Corporation of New York; Rockefeller Philanthropy; Rockefeller Brothers Fund; Global Fund for Women; The Russell Family Foundation; Danny Kaye & Sylvia Fine Foundation; Graham Charitable Foundation; Henry Luce Foundation; Hunt Alternatives; The Ms. Foundation and other elite tax-exempt foundations.  The people who sign the check determine the policy. Are all of these people on the same team, playing the public and causing controlled conflict?
In 1972, Gloria Steinem (CIA agent extraordinaire), Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marlo Thomas founded The Ms. Foundation.  Steinem’s social engineering activities led to Roe v. Wade. Pogrebin authored In Defense of the Law of Return for The Nation on December 22, 2003, a law passed in Israel on July 5, 1950 which grants any Jew automatic citizenship.  Pogrebin, a financial contributor to Obama since 2004,  is a member of Americans for Peace Now (APN) the most prominent American Jewish Zionist organization working to achieve a comprehensive political settlement to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Former Harvard professor, William “Bill” Kristol, the son of Irving Kristol, was Chief of Staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, under the first Bush regime. Bill Kristol founded the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), a tax-exempt foundation, in the spring of 1997, the same year that Rauf founded the ASMS. PNAC, with close ties to the American Enterprise Institute, was funded by the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation and the Bradley Foundation. Its objectives are U.S. Global supremacy and a “Greater Israel.” Twenty-five people signed their mission statement, seventeen of whom belong to the CFR, whose objective is a one-world government. Founding members include Elliott Abrams (CFR), Gary Bauer, William J. Bennett (Irving Kristol’s protégé), Jeb Bush, Richard B. Cheney (CFR), Eliot A. Cohen (CFR), Midge Decter (CFR), Paula Dobriansky (CFR), Steve Forbes, Aaron Friedberg (CFR), Francis Fukuyama (CFR), Frank Gaffney, Fred C. Ikle (CFR), Donald Kagan (CFR), Zalmay Khalilzad (CFR), I. Lewis Libby (CFR), Norman B. Podhoretz (CFR), Dan Quayle, Peter W. Rodman (CFR), Stephen P. Rosen (CFR), Henry S. Rowen (CFR), Donald Rumsfeld, Vin Weber (CFR), George Weigel (CFR), and Paul Wolfowitz (CFR). In 1992 Libby and Wolfowitz wrote Defense Planning Guidance for Defense Secretary Dick Cheney.
Bill Kristol advocates neo-conservatism, the American version of Trotsky’s Bolshevism. Kristol, a Bilderberger, a Manhattan Institute trustee, is also the editor and co-founder, along with John Podhoretz, of the Weekly Standard Magazine, established September 17, 1995 and funded, at a loss, by Rupert Murdoch (CFR), a Zionist. This so-called conservative magazine, co-edited by Fred Barnes, promotes the war hawk mentality, the same message heard on numerous “conservative” talk shows and on Murdoch’s Fox Network. Weekly Standard contributors include Joseph Epstein, Charles Krauthammer (CFR), Brit Hume, a Fulbright scholar,  Tucker Carlson, Robert W. Kagan (CFR) foreign policy analyst and son of Donald Kagan (CFR), Yale Professor John Podhoretz (son of Norman Podhoretz) and others. In 1995 Kristol confessed to the New Yorker: “The liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.”  See a video on PNAC here (warning: language).
Norman B. Podhoretz (CFR), a Trotskyite, in his books has admitted that the reason for the Cold War was to weaponize Israel to fight the Arab nations. He belongs to the influential New York chapter of the American Jewish Committee, one of the leading Zionist organizations operating within the U.S. It publishes the “liberal-turned-conservative” Commentary magazine.  Kagan is a columnist for the Washington Post, which was associated with the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird. He is a senior associate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and wrote Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order.
Now, remembering that the CIA probably controls much of what we hear from the elite-owned media, according to Pew, 30% of all Americans obtain their news from talk radio and cable television – many never read a book. A large percentage get their “news” from the Fox Network whose employees receive the morning memo, a directive on how to spin the “news” of the day. Roger Ailes, former Republican campaign wizard, is president of Fox News Channel and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group which has a throng of “journalists” and guests who push right-wing propaganda disguised as news.  According to a decision by the Florida Appeals Court on February 14, 2003 in the Jane Akre whistleblower lawsuit, the court agreed with Fox News that it is not against the law to distort or falsify the news in the U.S. 
In 1997, Israël Shahak wrote, “Since the spring of 1992, public opinion in Israel is being prepared for the prospect of a war with Iran, to be fought to bring about Iran’s total military and political defeat. In one version, Israel would attack Iran alone; in another it would ‘persuade’ the West to do the job.”  On January 26, 1998, the PNAC war hawks, in a letter to President Clinton, urged him to invade Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein.
In October 1998, the Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group completed a nine-month long study of the “technologies and defenses” against terrorists. The study group was a collaboration of the faculty of Harvard, MIT, Stanford and the University of Virginia. It was funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the Herbert S. Winokur Public Policy Fund at Harvard University. The group produced a report entitled: Catastrophic Terrorism: Elements of a National Policy.  An article based on the academic Study Group report appeared in the CFR journal Foreign Affairs in the November-December 1998 issue, the same year that PNAC wrote to President Clinton suggesting the removal of Hussein.
The project director was Philip D. Zelikow, later the gatekeeper executive director of the 9/11 Commission. He earlier co-authored a book with Condoleezza Rice (both members of Bush 41’s National Security Council) entitled Germany Unified and Europe Transformed: A Study in Statecraft. Zelikow also authored The National Security Strategy of the United States which became the new preemptive war doctrine of the Bush administration written for then National Security Council Director, Condoleezza Rice who had worked on the Bush transition team. He had a hidden agenda – connect al Qaeda and Iraq. 
PNAC compiled their policy statements in Rebuilding America’s Defenses, Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century, published in September 2000. We read, “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”  It appears that 9/11 was that new Pearl Harbor. As Shahak indicated, Israel was going to persuade the West to wage war. Just how would Israeli political leaders “persuade” the U.S. to invade their enemy, a country that has not militarily assaulted the U.S.? The elite, for over 100 years, has used false flag assaults and very pervasive media propaganda to win public support for their warfare. The CIA and their foreign intelligence counterpart, the Mossad, have lengthy experience in false flag tactics, the actual reason for their existence. At least two previous incidents, probably more, involved Israel.
On June 8, 1967, there was a failed attempt to use the “live bait” device, with government foreknowledge, with the USS Liberty. The Zionist owned U.S. media kept quiet about the Israeli attack on the ship. Then on October 12, 2000, the “live bait” tactic was used in the USS Cole where seventeen U.S. sailors were killed, and thirty-nine were injured. A small boat moved to the port side of the destroyer when all the sailors were gathering in the galley for lunch. An explosion occurred which created a 40-by-40-foot hole in the ship. Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden, a CIA asset, took credit for the attack. Yet, samples of the explosives retrieved from the ship’s hull showed that materials used were only available in the U.S. and Israel. Then the “live bait” tactic was used on 9/11 to get the U.S. to remove Hussein and bomb Iraq back to the Stone Age.
Within twenty-four hours of 9/11 the media miraculously, as if all the information were prepared beforehand, revealed histories, photos, and details about the Muslim terrorists who allegedly perpetrated the attack. Bin Laden, who died in December 2001, even came back from the dead to claim responsibility.  Fox News announced his death on December 26, 2001.  Despite the terrorist’s amazing ability to subvert the military response apparatus of the world’s most powerful nation, they failed to cover their trail and left a substantial amount of easy-to-find fireproof evidence. Their unhindered assault on a specific section of the Defense Department halted an audit that would have exposed billions of dollars of stolen money that had been funneled to special friends. The Port Authority, after it lost a 10-year asbestos lawsuit on May 1, 2001, were stuck with a money-losing albatross that they couldn’t get a license to demolish. On July 24, 2001 Eisenberg of the Port Authority leased the towers to his friend Larry Silverstein. Almost prophetically, Silverstein quickly insured the towers against a terrorist attack. 
On September 20, 2001, PNAC members sent a letter to President Bush in which they urged him to wage the nation’s “first war of the 21st century” including the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden, and the capture and prosecution of any and all perpetrators of 9/11. They encouraged Bush to go after any other group that means us harm. They advocated the end of Hussein’s government and the financial and military support of any Iraqi opposition. They also encouraged him to go after Hezbollah and the countries that support them, Iran and Syria. If Iran and Syria fail to comply and cooperate then the U.S. should take action against those countries. They further recommended that the U.S. withhold support from the Palestinians in favor of support to Israel. 
The letter said, “…But even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq.”  Richard Perle said, “This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq, then we take a look around and see how things stand. This is entirely the wrong way to go about it… If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war … our children will sing great songs about us years from now.”  Paul Wolfowitz said the anti-terrorism campaign has to be broad and sustained. “It’s not going to stop if a few criminals are taken care of.” Iran, another industrial competitor, is the next war target which brings us back to the subject of Feisal Abdul Rauf, the individual behind the Manhattan mosque project.
