Anti-Semitic 9/11 Conspiracy Theories 10 Years Later
Mainstreaming Anti-Semitic Theories
Posted: August 26, 2011
The anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theories have even made inroads among non-anti-Semites in the larger 9/11 conspiracy movement. Loose Change, a popular 9/11 conspiracy video, does not focus on anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, yet the video nevertheless uses the American Free Press, a wellspring of anti-Semitic 9/11 propaganda, as well as the work of anti-Semitic writer Christopher Bollyn to bolster its claims about the alleged government cover-up of the 9/11 attacks.
Some have gone further. In May 2010, for example, Alan Hart, a former mainstream reporter for the BBC and the Independent Television Network, alleged in an interview on the Internet radio show Truth Jihad that Israel and the Mossad were behind 9/11.
A decade after the devastating 9/11 attacks, the Jewish community continues to fight against the dangerous scapegoating that has madeit a target for hatred and vilification.
