Cé hé John Doe 2?
My 9/11 web page carries a link to an article about the Oklahoma City bombing, Was Tim McVeigh an agent of Iraq? A friend in the Russian Catholic community who recalled this sent me a very interesting piece published in Belfast, in the Irish language, Cé hé John Doe 2?. For those of us who have the Irish, here it is. And for those of us who do not, I am hoping to see a translation soon over at the blog Between the Worlds.
John Berger is the blogger whose site has done most to spark interest in the Oklahoma City-WTC connection. Take a look at it.
In late September and October, working sporadic night shifts on a New Jersey mountaintop, I was able to follow the aftermath of the incident, and reflect on it. I was fascinated by the responses of some Traditionalist followers of Julius Evola in favor of bin Laden, and realized that his movement may be limited to Muslims, but it has warm sympathizers among Americans of what is mistakenly called the extreme right. That's probably why I picked up on McVeigh'a alleged Iraqi connection.
Like most Americans, I was deeply moved by the outpouring of sympathy from every nation on earth. Every nation but one. The response of the government of Israel struck me as brutal and bullying. I was somewhat prepared by Jewish friends who said things like, Well now you people know how it feels to be an Israeli, with almost a sneer of satisfaction.
There was something very wrong there, and I read with interest European reports that the Israeli agents expelled from the United States early this year had had the hijackers under close surveillance in the weeks up to September 11. Their government's response to the attack would make sense as the guilty reaction of those who had some prior knowledge of the plan, which they did not see fit to share with the Americans. If so they must have been as horrified as bin Laden was elated by the unbelievable success of it. Or so I would like to think.
