Will Anyone Dare to Ask Why?
By David Duke, National President
European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO)
Thursday, September 17, 2001
This article will be frequently updated with further information, check for
the latest update.
America has a very big problem.
We have just experienced the shock of the most spectacular and deadly terror
attack in modern history. In an almost surreal scene from a Hollywood movie,
on September 11, 2001 hijacked passenger planes crashed directly into the
New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington. Thousands of
Americans were maimed and killed. The costs might even go over the one
trillion dollar mark, and the event may even trigger worldwide economic
Read David Duke's previous article: A Day of Tragedy for the Wounded Heart
These terrible acts of terrorism must be fought with every ounce of American
resolve. And those who commit such heinous acts must be punished to the
fullest severity of the law. No such acts must ever be permitted on American
That being said, how then do we then protect ourselves from terror in the
Because of increased scientific knowledge around the world, the next terror
could be far more deadly than what happened on September 11. The next
horrific occurrence might not even entail an explosion of any kind, but the
silent mass death of a biological or radiation attack.
The bad news is that no matter how many billions of dollars the government
spends or how many bombs it drops, it is impossible to completely protect
ourselves from these great dangers. In fact, the more bomb-dropping and
devastation we do, the more likely a future terroristic response.
We have moved into an era in which even sheer military might is no
protection. No longer can strong nations attack weak ones with impunity. The
tiniest nation or political entity can easily revenge itself with mass
terror. No nation is invulnerable, not even the strongest nation on earth.
Unless we understand the why of these terroristic acts, the motivation
behind them, we can not prevent a repeat of such terrorism in the future. We
Americans must ask ourselves why we now suffer such terror.
When a clock stops, we ask why.
Is it not plugged in? Is the battery dead? Is it broken? If so, why is it
When you have a problem, if you don't ask why and get some good answers and
act on them, it will persist. It may well even become a lot worse.
The American mass media has provided us in living color the gory details of
this bloody attack on the American people. They have even told us who might
be behind it, but the Zionist-dominated media so far have carefully avoided
giving an understandable reason why the attack took place.
Flyers from the UN Conference on Racism just prior to Tuesday's attack.
Calling the attackers "cowards" is, of course, untrue. The terrorists
committed an indescribably horrible and ruthless act against the American
people, but certainly they are not cowards. Kamikazes may be misguided, but
sacrificing one's own life for a cause is not cowardice. And calling the
perpetrators cowards or madmen doesn't answer the question of why these
horrendous acts occurred, unless one thinks every coward and madman wants to
blow up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Those descriptions prevent people from discovering the reasons why the event
actually occurred. And, if we want to prevent such occurrences from
happening in the future, it is absolutely vital that to understand "why."
Maybe a good first question to ask is why these "crazy," "cowardly," Arabs
never attack Switzerland or Sweden? What could it be that those countries do
or don't do that causes them to be ignored while we are targeted.
Let me be very, very blunt.
The ultimate cause of this terrorism stems directly from our involvement in
and support of the criminal behavior of Israel.
Terror in response to Terror
The Palestinians and many of their Arab allies have been the target of a
half century of unrelenting Israeli terrorism.
In the late 1940s the Zionists took over Palestine and drove out 700,000
people from their homes through widespread acts of terrorism. Among those
events was the sadistic massacre of 254 Palestinian mostly old men, women
and children at Deir Yassin. It was an especially vicious, cold-blooded
massacre characterized by Jews cutting apart the bellies of pregnant women.
1 After the bloodletting, the murderers then purposely publicized the event
so as to make the people flee in panic from their homes and businesses from
which they still haven't been allowed to return.
Former Israel Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, a participant in this
horrendous massacre, boasted of the importance of Deir Yassin in his book
The Revolt: The Story of the Irgun. He wrote that there would not have been
a State of Israel without the "victory" of Deir Yassin. "The Haganah carried
out victorious attacks on other fronts... In a state of terror, the Arabs
fled, crying, 'Deir Yassin. 2"
Nor did the massacres cease after the establishment of the Jewish State;
they continued in times of both peace and war. Following are the names of
some of them: Sharafat Massacre, Kibya Massacre, Kafr Qasem Massacre,
Al-Sammou' Massacre, the Sabra And Shatila Massacre, Oyon Qara Massacre,
Al-Aqsa Mosque Massacre, the Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre, the Jabalia Massacre.
In a policy of ethnic cleansing, Israel continues to keep residents of
Palestine who were born there and whose families lived there for countless
generations, from returning home. At the same time, it gives generous
incentives for genetic Jews who never lived in Palestine to immigrate from
the far corners of the world.
The British also suffered greatly from Israeli terror, such as the
horrendous bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.
Israeli terror has not stopped since. Israel has more prisoners per capita
than any other nation of the world, more than Stalinist Russia, or Red China
during its worst periods. It routinely tortures its Palestinian prisoners,
and is in fact the only nation in the modern world that legally sanctions
torture. In fact, a Jewish human rights group in Israel confirmed in a 60
page report that 85% of Palestinian detainees undergo torture while in
custody. 4 Even a major New York Times article by the Jewish Joel Greenburg,
stated matter-of-factly that Israel tortures 500 to 600 Palestinians every
Former Jewish Secretary of State Madeleine Albright called the death of
500,000 Iraqi children from starvation due to UN sanctions, "acceptable."
Israel has targeted and assassinated thousands of Palestinian leaders, and
this includes scholars, clerics, businessmen, philosophers and poets, anyone
who inspires the Palestinian people to patriotism. These assassinations have
occurred all over the world, even in the United States. In the process they
have killed many thousands of women and children. They have even repeatedly
bombed Palestinian refugee camps packed with women and children.
Not only did they establish their Israeli state over Palestinian land, (in
1948 Palestinians personally owned over 90 percent of it) the Jews took
almost all of the Palestinian personal property: the land, farms, homes and
businesses. After they drove out the Palestinian refugees and refused their
return, they then passed an "abandoned property" law that confiscated
Palestinian property and gave to the Jews. The law even has the chutzpah to
forbid ever selling any of their stolen land to Palestinians. 6
In 1982 Israel invaded Lebanon. During their invasion and 18 year occupation
an estimated 40,000 civilians died. Israel relentlessly bombed and attacked
cities and villages and also many hospitals and orphanages (as documented by
the Norwegian Red Cross) and devastated the ancient and once beautiful city
The current Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, doesn't dare even step
foot in Belgium or the Netherlands, fearing an indictment of the World Court
for war crimes. Sharon is responsible for the murder of two thousand of
refugees in the Sabra and Shatila camps in Lebanon.
Israel shot down a Libyan passenger airliner over the Sinai Peninsula
killing 111 people.
And it is has not just been the Palestinians who have suffered from Israeli
Zionist Terror Against the United States
Americans have also suffered from Zionist terror. In fact, Israel has
committed a number of acts of war against the United States.
Israel has a long record of terrorism against the United States going all
the way back to 1954. In that year, the Israel government plotted to blow up
American installations in Cairo and Alexandria and blame it on Egyptian
nationals. By chance the plot failed and was uncovered. It was named the
Lavon Affair after the man who supposedly set up the terrorism, Pinhas
Lavon, the Israeli Defense Chief. He resigned in 1955 over the incident. 7
In 1967, Israel purposefully attacked with unmarked jet fighters and torpedo
boats, the U.S.S. Liberty, an American Navy vessel of the Sinai Peninsula,
even machine gunning the deployed life rafts of the ship. The attack killed
31 American servicemen and wounded over 170. 8 They sought to sink the ship,
kill all the Americans and blame it on the Egyptians so they could have
American support to conquer larger areas of the Arab world.
The attack on the Liberty was nothing short of a vicious act of war against
the United States by Israel. In spite of the fact that U.S. Secretary of
State Dean Rusk and navy chief Admiral Moorer said that the attack on the
USS Liberty by Israel was deliberate, the all-powerful Zionist Lobby
prevented a formal Congressional investigation. If the Lobby can even cover
up horrendous Israeli crimes against America, it's no wonder they can cover
up Israel's endless crimes against the Palestinians. Yet, after the Liberty
attack America didn't even reduce our billions of dollars of aid, in fact
the story quickly vanished from the news after a few short days.
In 1986 Israel actually caused us to wrongly go to war and militarily attack
another nation. The Mossad planted a transmitter in Tripoli, Libya and then
broadcast terrorist messages in Libyan code indicating Libyan responsibility
for killing two Americans in the bombing of the La Belle discothèque in
Germany. 9 (It was later proven that Libya had nothing to do with the
bombing) By use of this fraud, Israel induced the American bombing of Libya.
American bombs wrecked havoc there. One of those killed was the infant
daughter of the Libyan President. It is certainly a dastardly act of war
against a nation to induce it into wrongly attacking another nation. Only a
truly evil enemy of America would do such a thing.
Every Palestinian and Arab is aware that Israel's half century of terror
could never have occurred without the active financial, military, and
diplomatic support of the United States. They know that the Jewish Lobby has
control of American Mideast Policy and the Zionists can get whatever they
want from Congress on issues important to them.
It was American support of Israel's brutal invasion and occupation of
Lebanon in the 1980s that led directly to the bombing of the U.S.
Marine contingent, killing 300 American young men.
The Involvement of America in Israeli Crimes
Arabs know that almost every bomb that kills their people comes from
America, Every bullet, every tank, every fighter plane, is manufactured or
paid for by American dollars. It is America's billions of dollars of support
that have enabled the Jewish state to terrorize the Arab people for half a
Even though Israel invaded Lebanon and killed thousands of civilians,
America never threatened to bomb Tel Aviv (as it did Iraq) if Israel refused
to obey UN resolutions to withdraw. A comparison of America's reaction to
Iraq's invasion of Kuwait to that of Israel's invasion of Lebanon is
America's one-sided policy foreign policy can be illustrated by the
different treatment afforded Israel and Iraq.
Iraq invaded Kuwait. Israel invaded Lebanon.
Perhaps 3000 Kuwait civilians died in the initial war with Iraq. 40,000
Lebanese died from the time of the invasion through the occupation.
Iraq disobeyed UN resolutions to leave Kuwait. Israel disobeyed UN
resolutions to leave Lebanon. (for 18 years)
Iraq broke international conventions on chemical, biological and nuclear
weapons. Yet Israel is a far greater offender, having one of the greatest
stores of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons in the world
Iraq refused UN inspections. Israel has always refused UN inspection.
For these violations we bombed Iraq. In response to Israel's crimes, America
just continued to send more billions of dollars.
American foreign policy was and continues to be Israeli policy. Israel was
not threatened with even a cutoff of U.S. aid as thousands of Lebanese
civilians died from the Israeli actions. Iraq was once a friend of America
with whom we bought oil and did much business. America actually supported
Saddam Hussein and Iraq's war with Iran. Iraq did nothing against the United
States, but it made the mistake of becoming a strong enemy of Israel. So the
Jewish and the Jewish-controlled gentile bureaucrats, and Jewish-dominated
media quickly made our former friend, Saddam Hussein, into our archenemy.
What is left of the USS Liberty after the Israeli military attacked it on
June 8, 1967. Thirty four US soldiers lost their lives.
We dropped more explosives on Iraq in a few weeks than we had in the whole
of the Second World War. We killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis including
tens of thousands of civilians. Then we engaged in a blockade and embargo of
Iraq that even the anti-Iraq United Nations says led to the deaths of at
least 1,200,000 children and hundreds of thousands of elderly. Let those
Americans who don't understand the why of this terrorism concentrate on this
shocking fact. One million, two hundred thousand children have died as a
direct result of our policy toward Iraq.
Some Americans reading my words will refuse to believe it, they will refuse
to believe that America has purposely caused the deaths of hundreds of
thousands of children. Here is the transcript of the interview of America's
Jewish Secretary of State with Leslie Stahl of CBS on May 11, 1996:
Lesley Stahl, speaking of US sanctions against Iraq: "We have heard that a
half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in
Hiroshima. And -- and you know, is the price worth it?"
Madeline Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we
think the price is worth it."
And some Americans wonder why we are so hated.
The Jewish Lobby and the Jewish-dominated media are very careful not to let
the American people fully understand the real reason for the Iraqi war or
the true issues in the Palestinian question. They really don't want
Americans to know why so many millions in the Arab world hate us and why the
number grows larger every day.
They don't want us to know the real reasons why Americans are so hated --
because it is the Jewish bosses of American foreign policy who are the one's
responsible for this growing hatred of America. Imagine the anger and
feelings of despair that would drive men to sacrifice their own lives to get
The Zionist bosses know that by America's supporting the criminal policies
of Israel spawns hatred against America. They are certainly aware that
bombing and going to war against nations solely for Israel's benefit creates
dedicated and fanatical enemies against America, enemies who will seek
revenge in American blood.
Of course, it is not in America's interest to go and kill people for Israel;
but Jewish interests are always paramount. In actuality, they are fully
aware that the brutal and stupid acts of terror that recently happened in
New York and Washington only help the Zionist cause by engendering enormous
American anger at Israeli enemies, and make Americans more easily
manipulated to do the bidding of Israel.
Think about who really gained from this terror. Have the Palestinians
benefited? This terrorist act destroyed all the progress the Palestinians
have recently made with world opinion. It has blinded the world to Israeli
terrorism. Israel is the only winner in this tragedy. They will now have a
green light to do anything they want against the Palestinians. They can kill
any of their foes whether they are violent or non-violent. They will get all
the money they want from the American people, and no one will be thinking
about their on-going suppression, murder and human rights violations against
the Palestinian people.
No, the Zionists are the only benefactors of the horrendous day of terror on
September 11, 2001. Ironic isn't it, that although Zionist criminal actions
led to this terror, only the Zionists will benefit from it. Of course, the
reason they benefit because the American mass media is completely in their
hands 10 and it will never ask the proper questions of why these horrendous
events are happening. Unfortunately, too few people will ever hear voices
such as mine who dare to challenge the Zionist lies.
That's why we are in this mess, because a foreign power has become the most
powerful lobby in the American government and controls the direction of the
mass communication media in America.
Let me repeat that one more time. The primary reason we are suffering from
terrorism in the United States today is because our government policy is
completely subordinated to a foreign power: Israel and the efforts of
worldwide Jewish Supremacism.
American Flags are flying everywhere in America in the aftermath of the
attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. That is good, for we need
to be more patriotic. If we were more patriotic for the real interests of
America rather than for Israel, we would not now suffer from terrorism.
And truly, what could be more patriotic than wanting our own country to be
led by our own people in the service of America; not a foreign power or a
Yes, we must fight tooth and nail against any terrorists who attack our
country. But, we must understand why this terror is occurring, and how it
has been spawned. It has occurred because of long-standing treason against
the United States and her people.
What has Zionism cost the American People?
The Jewish Lobby and media power has cost the United States about 6 billion
dollars a year in foreign aid and weapons, almost one third of America's
entire foreign aid budget during the last half century and as much money
spent in America's drug war.
It has poisoned our relations with the oil-rich Mideast nations. In response
to our policies, the Arabs came together and developed their "oil weapon"
which has cost Americans at least ten at least ten trillion dollars in
higher oil costs.
It has alienated the entire Arab world, leading to destruction or
confiscation of billions of dollars of American property in those countries,
kidnapping of American citizens, and generated enormous hatred for the
How has Israel has paid us back for our support? They have continually spied
on us on us (the Jonathan Pollard Case), sold our highest secrets (such as
to the biggest nuclear threat to us currently in the world: the Communist
Chinese) 11 and stolen our enriched uranium for their illegal nuclear
A Palestinian family sits on the rubble of their home after it was attacked

September 15, 2001
They have launched terrorist attacks against the United States such as the
Lavon Affair and the Attack on the USS Liberty. Both these acts were nothing
short of vicious acts of war against the United States. Providing false
information for America to wrongly go to war against another country is also
nothing less than an Israeli act of war against the United States. Yet, in
response to these despicable actions against America, our Zionist controlled
leaders did not even reduce our billions of dollars of financial and
military aid to Israel. We give Israel about 6 billion dollars in aid each
year, that is more than all the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean
and South America.
What is the latest cost of our subservience to the criminal actions of
Zionism? The latest price we have paid is the horrendous acts of terrorism
on September 11, 2001.
The powerful agents of Israel in American media and government are
ultimately responsible for this terror against the United States just as
surely as if they themselves had piloted those planes into the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon.
And now they cynically plan to use the terror that they themselves created
inspired the cycle of violence against Israel's enemies. You can be sure
that the Zionist powers plan to do far more than simply punish the
perpetrators of these events. America will once again be used to strike
against whoever Israel wants.
An indiscriminate or intemperate response from America would ultimately
produce even more hatred against America, and bring more terroristic acts
upon the heads of American people. The increasing cycle of hatred is exactly
want the Zionists want, for their aim is that we will fight Israel's enemies
for them, spilling our blood instead of theirs. They are only ones who truly
benefit from America's pain. Rather than Israel, we will pay the ultimate
Fighting Terrorism with Terrorism
Many in the American media and government are screaming for mass destruction
against America's newly perceived enemies. Recent opinion polls (CBS and
CNN) show that 60 to 75 percent of the American people endorse warfare
against suspected terrorists. They support these actions (and I quote the
poll question precisely) "even if it causes the deaths of thousands of
innocent people." It hurts my heart to think that a vast majority of the
American people take exactly the same view toward innocent human life as did
the terrorists of September 11.
So far, I have heard no one, not one of the great moral media pontificators,
the President of the United States, our church leaders, or anyone else of
prominence who is brave enough to point out this blatant moral hypocrisy.
So we are now going to fight terrorism. So what happens when America goes
out and bombs the hell out of countries and indiscriminately kills
"thousands of innocent people." Will we really end the threat of terrorism?
America has done the same thing before. Let's take a look at how it has
worked out for us.
As pointed out earlier, in 1986 the Israelis gave America false evidence
against Libya and induced us to bomb the hell out of the country. We bombed
a nation to "fight terrorism" for a crime it did not even commit. A year
after our bombing, a few members of a radical group in Libya sought revenge
and bombed Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, causing one of the
worst air disasters of all time, killing 270. We exact our revenge with B-1
bombers; they do it through suicide bombers.
There is no way to completely protect ourselves from those kinds of acts.
Even one fanatic person, if he are willing to commit suicide, they can
easily cause a plane to crash with a minimal amount of (non-detectible)
explosives. We live in an era in which deadly biological agents of mass
destruction can be made in anyone's basement. America must take heed; the
next terroristic act can be committed by just one person and kill hundreds
of thousands of people. The exercise of brute military force can no longer
protect any nation.
Does anyone remember America's last "attack on terrorism?" Clinton promised
to wage a "war on terrorism" by bombing Afghanistan and by bombing a
pharmaceutical complex in the Sudan. These attacks were cynically launched
by Clinton during critical days of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. They failed
to kill Bin Laden, but they caused the Taliban to vow bloody revenge against
America for the death and destruction in his country. The events of
September 11 may be a direct result of that "war on terrorism." Let me
repeat, we send our B1 bombers and they send their suicide bombers. And now,
unless cooler head prevail, we are ready to embark on another war on
terrorism that may kill thousands of innocent people and escalate the cycle
Heal the Wounds and Put the well-being of America First
Unless we heal the wounds and give America a better course, every new
missile and bomb we send will come back to us again. Every drop of blood we
spill in foreign lands will result in more American blood lost here and
abroad. America will sink more and more into uncertainty and fear.
After the events of September 11, a father who lost his daughter in the
Lockerbie plane crash, John Mosey, wrote to British Prime Minister Tony
Blair. He pointed out that the 270 who died in the 1988 bombing were killed
in reprisal for "aggressive" US policies in the Arab world. He went on to
caution, "The utmost care must be taken that whatever path is eventually
pursued is successful and does not harm innocent people, thus producing
another batch of terrorists." 13
We must have cool heads now and break this cycle of violence.
Let us pray for the American victims of these events and for their suffering
families. Let us go after the perpetrators of these dastardly acts with
But, even more importantly, let us understand why these events occurred and
how we can heal the hatred against our nation.
Many traitors in our government have supported Zionism's criminal activities
rather than the true interests of the American people. They have spawned the
hatred that drove these terrible acts. Unless their power is broken
Americans will be haunted by an increasing specter of terrorism.
Once we understand the reason why, then we will all agree on the sure way to
prevent such terroristic acts in the future.
The solution to this huge problem is extremely obvious and it is very
America must heed the farewell address of the Father of our Country and
"avoid foreign entanglements."
Finally, we must always put America and the American People first.

One could go one for pages about what the arabs have done to israel, but the truth is both Israel and the Arab nations surrounding it are at fault for their present conflict.

Well, there are truths, such as the whole talk about sheer military might not being the answer... but blaming everything on the jewish leadership...
I once had an extended intermittent flamewar with some idiot on a newsgroup. He was very racist. Among the things I heard:
"Oh, the white people are more intelligent, but the blacks are more emotional." --- To which I would append an unspoken: "So this mean's I'm not realling insulting anyone!" Yeah right.
The truth is that statistically and biologically speaking, human genetic differences are almost evenly (bell curve-ish) strewn across the population of the world. Skin color is controlled by an astonishingly miniscule percentage of the genes within the human chromosomes... I'm pretty sure it amounts to maybe eight genes out of a total (guesses to our total vary) of maybe 40,000 to 70,000... about 1/5000 to 1/8750.
And these guys are going to stand up on a podium, and say such things as:
"Well, you see, we're good, and white, and follow Christ."
"Wasn't Christ a Jew?"
"Well, the Jews today... they're not the real people who are descended from Jesus' culture. They stole our heritage."
"Black people are X. White people are X."
"And this is on the basis of skin color?"
"Well, we can't go overboard! It's just a generalization! Skin color has very little to do with the rest of the human genome, and there are plenty of exceptions to every rule..."
(Unspoken "But we should discriminate against all of them anyway, just in case. We can't let our holier-than-thou-culture or genome be tainted!"
