How the Zionist Media Network Interprets 9-11

Why is the mainstream media suppressing essential 9-11 evidence?
The question of who controls the media is central to understanding the criminal network behind the cover-up, and by extension – the attack itself.
The events of 9-11 have become the most blatantly propagandized events of modern American history. Rather than examining the evidence from the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the mainstream media has provided unwavering support for the seriously flawed official version that nineteen Arabs armed with box-cutters are responsible for the devastation in New York City and Washington. Since 9-11, there have been numerous television programs and books produced supporting the official 9-11 story. 2006 marks the release of the first major motion pictures designed to bolster that version. As if coordinated by a hidden hand, three major productions are being released this year, each focusing on a different location.
A recent Zogby poll reveals that less than half of the American public believes the official 9-11 saga. The nationwide poll conducted in mid-May found that 52 percent of the population thinks that the government and its appointed 9-11 Commission ignored evidence that contradicted the official story. The 9-11 Commission, for example, did not mention – much less investigate – the unexplained collapse of Larry Silverstein's 47-story WTC 7. This blatant omission helps explain why nearly half the U.S. population is unaware of the demolition-like collapse that occurred in the late afternoon of 9-11. The collapse of WTC 7, a key event which has baffled structural engineers, is rarely even mentioned by the mainstream media.
The numerous eyewitness accounts of explosions in the WTC before and during the collapses are another crucial aspect of 9-11 that is censored by the mass media. The flow of molten metal spilling from the South Tower before it collapsed and the pressure pulses and puffs of white smoke that preceded each flow are described in great detail in the final report published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in September 2005. But the videos and evidence of this molten metal pouring from the 81st floor have not been shown or discussed by the mainstream media.
The data in the NIST report about the molten metal provides scientific evidence that a form of steel-melting Thermite was used in the destruction of the WTC. The Thermite reaction, which cuts steel like a warm knife through butter, produces molten iron and aluminum oxide, a white smoke, and extreme temperatures of 5400 degrees F. Thermite would explain the persistent hot spots that burned beneath the rubble for weeks after the attack. The hottest spot in the rubble was the eastern corner of the South Tower where the largest flow of molten metal was seen immediately before the collapse. Similar hot spots persisted beneath the rubble of the North Tower and WTC 7.
The censorship by the mass media of such critical evidence indicates that the controlled media is engaged in a deliberate cover-up of the worst terror attack in U.S. history. The Zogby poll reveals that the majority of Americans simply do not believe the government version being trumpeted by the mainstream media. Asked if the media had adequately covered the unanswered questions of 9-11, 55 percent said "no".
So why is the mainstream media suppressing essential evidence about 9-11? Who controls the media, and who is responsible for creating the propaganda supporting the official version?
United 93 – The Movie
The first movie about 9-11, United 93, has already been released. It was produced by Working Title Films of Oxford Street, London, a British-based subsidiary of Universal Pictures. The film, directed by Paul Greengrass, was produced by Liza Chazin, Lloyd Levin, Eric Fellner, Debra Hayward and Tim Bevan. "As 2006 marks the passing of five years since the epochal events of 9-11, the time has come for contemporary cinema's leading filmmakers to dramatically investigate the events of that day, its causes and its consequences," the film's website says. United 93 "partially improvises the events," it says, because, in something of an understatement, "there is no perfect record of the hijacking's exact details."
Yet Greengrass, the writer and director of the film says his improvisation "tells the story of the day through a meticulous re-enactment of events surrounding United 93, the last of the four hijacked aircraft, in the belief that by examining this single event something much larger can be found – the shape of our world today."
"It was the most important event that occurred in our lifetime," Greengrass told Michael Elkin, entertainment editor of the Philadelphia-based Jewish Exponent. "It drives all our politics; it defines the nature of our world and our children's world."
In the 1980s, Greengrass worked for Cecil and Sidney Bernstein's left-leaning Granada Television and co-wrote the exposé SpyCatcher: The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer with Peter Wright, the former assistant director of MI5, the British counter-intelligence and security agency.
"The ultimate question" raised by the film, Greengrass told the Jewish Exponent, is "How do we face up to the jihadist hijacking of Islam?"
Elkin told me that Greengrass came to Philadelphia for the Jewish Exponent interview shortly before the film's release in late April. I asked Jonathan Tobin, editor of Jewish Exponent if Greengrass was Jewish. "I don't know," Tobin said, "but it's certainly a Jewish name."
World Trade Center Movie
The second film to be released, coming out in August, will be the World Trade Center movie produced by Paramount Pictures of Hollywood and directed by Oliver Stone. Paramount Pictures is a subsidiary of Viacom, which is controlled by Sumner Murray Redstone. The film's producers, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher, asked Andrea Berloff to write the screenplay. Berloff, a 32-year old writer, "believes in the Jewish tradition and culture," her sister Stacey said from the family home in Brookline, Mass.
Pentagon 9-11 Documentary
A television documentary, Pentagon 9-11, is being produced by Admiralty Productions, Ltd. of Fairfax Station, Virginia. The Pentagon movie will be Admiralty's first work. Joel M. Ratner, president and founder of InterMedia Development Corp. is responsible for producing and directing the film. The co-producers at Admiralty Productions are Rear Admiral William Thompson (U.S. Navy - ret.), Edward A. Shackleford, a Virginia-based lawyer, and Michael A. Dickerson, a professor of communication specializing in military matters at George Mason University. On his company's website, Ratner says his film will be "the definitive account of the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon as a television documentary and DVD product."
Dickerson told me that Ratner is in charge of the film. Dickerson said he had not seen the Pentagon building performance report or any of the other evidence which disproves the film's storyline that a Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon. Among other things, he was unaware of the presence of intact structural columns and undisturbed cable spools in the path of the alleged Boeing 757, which supposedly struck the Pentagon "at grade level."
Apart from supporting the official saga with emotional stories of suffering and heroism, these productions share one thing in common. Although it is difficult to obtain biographical information about the people behind these films, because of secrecy, name changes, and aliases, it is clear that the key players are British and American Jews, many with strong ties to Israel, a country from which more than 200 suspects were arrested in connection with 9-11.
For example, the person who controls Viacom, which owns Paramount Pictures, the studio producing the WTC film, is Sumner Redstone. Redstone is chairman of both Viacom and CBS Corp. "Viacom is me," Redstone said. "I'm Viacom." Redstone's media empire includes Comedy Central, Showtime, CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, and BET. Sumner is the son of Max Rothstein, who became Michael Redstone. The elder Rothstein got started in show business when he bought the original Latin Quarter, a nightclub started by Lou Walters, father of television personality Barbara Walters. Lou Walters was a business partner with Elias M. Loew, the founder of the Loew empire of theaters and hotels.
Rothstein opened one of the first drive-in theatres in the United States, and built a chain of theatres in the 1940s. Rothstein was also a founder of Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
There is abundant evidence that the Israeli military intelligence agency Mossad had prior knowledge of the WTC attacks on the day of the attacks but did not warn the government of New York City, which could have saved thousands of lives. Ignoring the evidence of Israeli involvement, a network of committed Zionists with undue influence over the media and government is manipulating the historic events of 9-11 to suit their agenda.
