Dear Gordon Duff, I would be most grateful if you would be so kind as to publicize the following Declaration and urge readers to endorse it.

Those who wish to endorse it, send their names, titles/occupation and city of residence to me, at [email protected].

With my kindest regards and wishes for your work.
Elias Davidsson, Bonn, Germany


A. On the basis of the study “No evidence that Muslims hijacked planes on 9/11” by Elias Davidsson (2008), that we have carefully examined, and other similar studies, we undersigned are now convinced that the U.S. authorities did not prove [beyond reasonable doubt*] their account on the mass murder of September 11, 2001, in particular their claim that Muslims/Arabs committed this crime.

B. The presumption of innocence, as a civilised principle, is enshrined in Article 11 (1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, according to which, every person “charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law (…)” While the presumption of innocence was particularly drafted to protect the rights of persons already charged of a penal offence, it evidently applies to persons who have not even been formally accused of any offence.

C. On the basis of the above findings, we consider the publication and dissemination of the allegation that Muslim/Arabs committed the mass murder of 9/11, as a grievous and unconscionable form of character assassination. Such an allegation violates the principle of the presumption of innocence. It also violates Articles 1, 3, 5 and 8 of the Declaration of Principles on the Conduct of Journalists of the International Federation of Journalists, the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists, the Statement of Principles of the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE), and Resolution 1003 on the ethics of journalism, adopted by the Council of Europe in 1993.

D. We, therefore, call upon journalists to refrain henceforth from attributing, either directly or indirectly, the commission of the mass murder of 9/11 to Muslims or Arabs or to any Muslim or Islamic organisation; to publicise the unreported fact that the U.S. authorities did not produce any evidence of Muslim/Arab participation in the actual mass murder of 9/11; and to publish an apology to the families of those maligned, without foundation, for the mass murder of 9/11.

    Deegan, I suggest you read the section Who Did 911 before you close your mind simply because of a tag. The evidence in my opinion, is conclusive. Do not make a decisin based on a knee jerk reaction! Don’t be so thinned skin, I’m Jewish and I think Israel did it!

  2. YOU ARE A SHILL FOR ISRAEL, AND THAT'S SAD  October 27, 2010 at 7:52 am

    ever hear of GTR-5, Mr. Deegan? how about Rachel Corrie? or the use of White Phosphorous in the Gaza Strip, by Israel? How about the murder of innocent people on the Mavi Marmara? Nope…none of these??

    you are an apologist for MURDERERS, because Israel, and I do mean ISRAEL, did 9/11.

    Ever hear of Dominic Suter and Urban Moving Systems? How they got paid half a million bucks by the U.S. Treasury, for planting the charges in the ‘3’ buildings?

    nope, didn’t think you had.

    Why did you lie about how you found this place, Mr. Deegan? Why?

  3. netwit  October 27, 2010 at 2:36 am

    While we’re at it, guys, hows about a companion declaration: No truthers involved in actual rational thinking. All truthers exonerated of ever resorting to reason, logic or scientific analysis. They’re totally INNOCENT – of all intelligent thought!

    • what?  October 27, 2010 at 10:29 pm

      I’d have to say you guys are losing the truth war, my friend.

      Five years ago, 40 percent knew this was done by the U.S. Government and Mossad.

      Today, those numbers are 75 percent now know that it was an Israeli operation, with NORAD helping out., and the F.B.I. covering it up.

      I hate to be the one bringing you the really bad news, but each day that goes by, more people wipe the shit out of their eyes and see the TREASON.

      next week, the numbers on this side grow even more ominious.

      Someday, pal, old budd, friend…there will be trials, and there will be capitol punishment meted out after sentencings take place.

      you can count on it! I do. and so does the rest of the world, who knows that this was a SELF INFLICTED WOUND carried out by MOSSAD/ISRAEL and the U.S. GOVERNMENT.

      you cannot stop the tsunami. the evidence is overwhelming. Truth will win out over lies, obfuscations, and tragic bullshit stories told by liars and mass murderers.





      and if you get the chance, watch this very good documentary, which shines the bright shining disinfecting light of TRUTH on the TREASON;

    • Gordon Duff  October 24, 2010 at 2:29 pm

      Tell your story at a reunion of USS Liberty survivors. I do so love the Israeli talking points. You are simply and totally uninformed. I hope it is out of some sort of learning disability and not simple evil.
      I will stop short of calling you a liar. It is my hope that a majority of Israelis don’t think like you…and that a majority of American Jews find your words repulsive and sickening.
      We can only hope.

    • netwit  October 27, 2010 at 2:49 am

      Man, with all those capital letters, you gotta be right! (Is the Talmud all caps, too, Rabbi; you know, where it talks about sucking the wealth out of the gentiles?) Also, you argue: “THEY HAVE GIVEN AND GIVEN…” Who they? The Israelis or their squeeze, the Yankee taxpayers?

    DHS memo: Assassins headed to Arizona with orders to kill

    PHOENIX – A recently leaked memo from the Department of Homeland Security alerts law enforcement agencies that assassins are being hired by drug cartels in an effort to improve drug trafficking through Arizona.

    • Lawrence A Dickerson  October 23, 2010 at 7:19 pm

      These assassin’s are nothing but a localized gang the Zetas who became the drug cartel’s hit squads on both sides of the US/Mexican border.Nothing new and this is part of what Arizona is facing thus the efforts of the Governor and Sheriff Arpaio in openly attacking these types.The do gooders who use this as an excuse to demonstrate are naive and or on the cartel dole.

  7. Rehmat  October 22, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    “Gordon Duff, by publishing Elias Davidsson’s claim that no Muslim was involved in 9/11 – you have proved once again that yu’re an anti-Semite and Jew hater,” Abraham Foxman, national director ADL.

    • Penumbra  October 22, 2010 at 3:18 pm

      There are no greater anti-Semites in the US (perhaps in the world) than Abe Foxman and those who follow/support him. Let us be reminded yet again, Ashkenazi descendants of Khazari political converts to Judaism (and note most of those in fact atheists, adherents to false Talmudic doctrines of man, or outright Luciferian Sabbatteans) ARE NOT REMOTELY SEMITIC. The Same holds true for Sephardic descendants of North African Berbers. Only the tiny Mizrahi (Arab Jewish) minority has any valid claim to semitic descent.

      Arabs were, are and always will be true Semites and as they are the target of perpetual hatred, false witness and outright crimes against humanity by these lying, conniving false “Jew” ideologues, the charge of anti-Semitism falls rightly and exclusively upon the latter and any who aid or abet them in their lies and crimes.

  8. Nelson_2008  October 22, 2010 at 11:45 am

    If I was accused of a crime I did not commit, I’d be demanding a thorough investigation to clear my name.

    Why isn’t Silverstein offering to take a polygraph test? Why isn’t Israel demanding an investigation?

    Why aren’t all of Israel’s fanatical defenders supporting an investigation?

    • Penumbra  October 22, 2010 at 3:06 pm

      Simple, Nelson

      They don’t demand a real (public, transparent) investigation because they already control the mainstream perception management aparati and the “official conspiracy theory” still holds sway over the bulk of the populace (as shown clearly by soul train above).

      If the public were to awaken from stupor, turn off the indoctrination box and actually examine the mountain of factual, logical consistent, and scientifically confirmed evidence, THEN perhaps the outcry against the clearly obvious actual perpetrators would be sufficient to prompt a demand from the real beneficiaries of 911 (and all events since) for an investigation (one they again would attempt to control of course).

      Until then, they consider us an easily marginalized annoyance at best.

  9. Nicole  October 22, 2010 at 10:09 am

    I approved the declaration, and gave my blog address. Then I received a mail from Elias (my blog expresses clearly my conviction that Israël did 9/11) who told me the responsibles were Cheney and Rumsfeld and I could not tell Israël did it. I sent two answers, giving links and the reasons why I think so, and have no doubt.

    By the way, I think it has to be said. My experience in France is that the truth movement is clearly and deeply infiltrated. You can’t say Israël did 9/11.

    Therefore, I find difficult to understand clearly the games between persons like Bollyn, Hufschmid…who accuse each other to be disinformation agents.

  10. Soul Train  October 22, 2010 at 6:34 am

    Here’s some more New Yorkers Duffy:

    Does it matter what religion people were who died on 9/11. Don’t know how many were killed in the London bombings or the Madrid one for that matter so or the conspiracy nutcases going to tell us the Mossad did not tell the Jews in London and Madrid of the attacks since of course they will make out that Mossad knew of them attacks too.

    The point is surely that every persons life on that day and everyday is just as important as the next person.

    too many

    and no i do not believe the rubbish that the crime was commited by jews… was muslim terrorists, just like the madrid, bali, mumbai and london bombings….and just like those the muslim deniers sre busy rewriting history and blaming jews and anyone but themselves….even when the sickos made videos of themselves boasting about what they were going to do …..their supporters and the foolish deny the facts too many innocents worldwide are victims of islamic terrorists

    About 260 is the number I’ve heard of Jews who died at the WTC.

    I knew nine of them, if that helps. And I know one Israeli who survived.
    1 year ago

    Let’s see, I personally knew three.

    I remember when this bit of dis-information got injected into the discussion: some nonsense about how jews were called and told not to go to work that day.

    I’ve never seen a single bit of evidence to support it. But meanwhile I have three dead jewish friends, for whatever that’s worth.

    Photo by: AP Ahmadinejad questions 9/11 deaths
    “No Zionists killed because they were told not to go to workplace.”
    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad questioned Saturday the death toll in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, saying there was no evidence that 3,000 people were killed, according to Reuters.

    Ahmadinejad also accused the United States of trumping up the Sept. 11 attacks to “create and prepare public opinion” for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and said that no “Zionists” were killed in the attacks because “one day earlier they were told not go to their workplace.”

    • Nelson_2008  October 22, 2010 at 9:19 am

      If Jews didn’t do it, then why did they do this?

      Please provide an explanation.

    • Gordon Duff  October 22, 2010 at 9:58 am

      The first Israeli passport holder to die on 9/11 was identified July 17, 2010…a janitor.
      There were 4000 ISRAELI PASSPORT holders working in the WTC.
      don’t get hoodwinked on this one
      …the denials
      there really was a warning
      it really did happen

    • Eddie  October 22, 2010 at 10:17 pm

      Hey Gordon,

      Sould Train is one of those paid-trolls/disinfo agents. There was one of them here the other day, but he was really crap at it. So it looks like his manager, Soul Train, has taken over…

      Btw, he mentions the London bombings.. for which the inquest into the deaths is currently underway in the UK… and guess what? the authorities are having a real hard time producing the CCtv evidence that they said they had so much of…. nothing to show the accused getting onto any of the trains that blew up..

    • it wuz a COINCIDENCE :)  October 27, 2010 at 10:13 pm

      Yeah, imagine that ODIGO thing just being a huge, huge coincidence, where 4,000 jews at Cantor-Fitzgerald all took a hike when the buildings came down. Y’know, I think they were all at the synagogue around the corner, praying for WORLD PEACE that morning, or better yet, out collecting money for Gaza Strip Palestinians who they were butchering to take the organs out of. Who knew????

      the most compelling part of this is Larry Silverstein’s profiting off the deaths of a bunch of people that day, getting out from underneath the leases of his white elephant, asbestos laden towers.

      It was also a ‘coincidence’ that all the gold that was being ferreted out of there in trucks didn’t get out in time, and can you imagine, not a single dead truck driver caught in that when that happened, either?

      I got to hand it to these humanitarian zionist jews, they sure do make the word ‘CHUTZPAH’ somehow very very disgustingly INADEQUATE with their lies and their guilt with this mossad operation.

      How many people know that these guys detonated their van full of explosives that day?? It’s on police scanner audio to listen to.

      and also, how many know that Dominic Suter is back in New Jersey right now, presumably doing another sequel to 9/11 as I type this??

      oh, I forgot, he’s back from Israel where he fled to pray, to help out the victims with the 475k dollars the U.S. Treasury paid his Urban Moving Systems for their shitty, half assed timing of Bldg 7’s demolition charge initiation. 🙂

      who’d have known???

  11. Soul Train  October 22, 2010 at 6:23 am

    Hey Duff, my Egyptian friends sensed that 9/11 would happen beforehand, most people knew something was up after the Embassies were blown up in Africa-my Arab friends today, even when I show them your article, disagree with you about what happened. They know it was Muslims behind the dispicable act, and mostly Saudis-friends of the Rightwinger, big OIL, Bush-loving crowd–It was the Hamburg cell,and 19 hijackers, 15 from Saudi Arabia.

    In “Protocols of Zion”, the film released 2005-ish, they interview a coroner who handled most of the dead from 9/11 and he points out that a substantial number of Jews died in the attacks. He may even say a specific number, I can’t remember, but if you haven’t seen this film, it’s very worth your time as a modern analysis of anti-semitic bigotry.

    About 500 Jewish people died from the 9/11 attacks, which is 15-17% of the total victims. It would have been higher but every September extra prayers, called Selichot, are added before Yom Kippur. As a result, many Orthodox Jews left for work about an hour late.

    However, I assume you are asking this question with the implication that Jews knew beforehand that the attacks would happen. If so, that is a very offensive assumption. To even think that the Mossad has any kind of direct line to American Jews as to organize such a feat is ridiculous. You should also know that Hazalah ambulances (the Jewish ambulance service) were the first on the scene in an attempt to help the injured.
    1 year ago

    • Eddie  October 22, 2010 at 9:55 pm

      re Soul Train
      Another paid troll by the sound of his comments…. I suppose they would specifically turn up for an article like this.

      Anyway re.. “You should also know that Hazalah ambulances (the Jewish ambulance service) were the first on the scene in an attempt to help the injured”.
      Well, I suppose when ‘the Jewish ambulance service’ gets news of ‘organs to be had’, they’re sure to turn up.

      By the way, what your Egyptian friends say, is neither an argument nor evidence for anything… I’m pretty sure theres are millions of Egyptians who would dissagree with your friends (and I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt that you’ve actually got Egyptian friends). And before you go deluding yourself even more, it’s common knowledge in Muslim countries that US & Israel were behind the attacks.

    • odigo messages say something different  October 28, 2010 at 5:07 am

      where did the 4,000 jews at Cantor Fitzgerald go to that day? they didn’t die in the towers? did they all call in ‘sick’ or did they just vaporize and re-spawn back in Tel Aviv?

      you can’t have it both ways.

      bigotry is one thing, hard facts that prove jews had foreknowledge is another, and it’s there.

      only the unfortunate ones who didn’t get their odigo message perished.

      that’s a fact.

  12. mason  October 22, 2010 at 1:33 am

    The U.S. should be held to account for Reparations for the war crimes of invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan which were based on lies. Especially for such incidence as Fallujah.

    No nation should be subjected to the terrorism that the U.S. has inflicted on Iraq, Afghanistan, and now even Pakistan (not to mention the 6 decades of documented crimes around the planet).

    The majority of Americans approved of the “shock and awe” which fulfilled their acquired thrill to watch and feel “proud to be American”.

    Should change our motto from “Apple pie and Baseball” to “popcorn, couch, and shock and awe”.

    Most Americans don’t want to speak of the actual slaughter or look at the pictures of mutilated children which they are all responsible for. It really doesn’t bother too many Americans as far as I have discovered over these last 9 years.

  13. william f mcdonagh 3  October 21, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    we need to have a new trial regarding 9-11 ,if the government,will not act .then, we should.including the anthrax attacks,with all the new facts that have been revealed in the years following the attacks it is demanded of us,we cant afford to wait any longer,too many lives are at stake,are we heading for the final phase and the disaster that will unfold in the coming middle east theater? sure looks that way,until we reveal the real perpatraitors of these attacks on our republic and the world has much to lose god save the usa pray for the victims that suffered a horrible crime on that day,i ask anyone to come forward to help me establish a legal proceeding to determine the facts and open a military trial,if the defendants dont show up for court or swear an outh on the bible,they will be tried in absentee,and notified by the common or military court to give testimony and notice of appearance,issued warrants will be distributed if foung guilty of the horible crimes they are accused of under rico organized crime statutes and the constitution grants the power to convien a trial if the need arises in very limited circumstances,if elected or voted on representatives of our republic refuse to carry out their duties to defend the nation against enemies foriegn and domestic .these attacks fit that definition i personally swear any defendant accused will be represented by competant legal counsel and be treated fairly,putting aside any prenotions i might have of what i believe has occured,separate fact from fiction in a manner that will represent the ideals this nation was founded on,with the sensitivities and apologies to the indian nations dulley aside

    I agree, Arabs were not smart enough to pull off that complex operation. I think they were martians, as most Saudi’s are Martian, at least 18 by last count.

  15. Nelson_2008  October 21, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    LOL! Well it’s not like there’s a large pool of potential suspects with the means, motive, opportunity (and past history of false-flag terrorism) to choose from, is there?

    And there’s a hell of a lot of circumstantial evidence implicating Israel and its fanatical partisans, isn’t there?

    So either “Arabs” did it (which they obviously didn’t) or Jews did it (with help from traitors in high places in the U.S. government).

    It’s not a matter of “political correctness”, it’s a matter of drawing a simple conclusion from a set of self-evident facts.

      This is Amerika dammit. We don’t need no naffing Habeas Corpus. Irsael did 9/11. Just look at the video of WTC7 going down like a cheap hooker. If it was wired for controlled demo (which it definitely was) then ALL 3 BUILDINGS WERE AS WELL.

      Now watch a video of Larry Silverstein saying “we decided to ‘pull it’ and start connecting the dots from there. They all lead to ISRAEL.

    the study “No evidence that Muslims hijacked planes on 9/11″ by Elias Davidsson is an excellent article.

    Hey, Elias are you aware of the evidence that strongly indicates 911 was a Mossad operation? It’s about time Muslim organizations talk about the Mossad 911 connection.
