Ed Toner: Of the 130 Israelis President Bush claimed had died in the World Trade Center, it turned out that 129 of them were still alive, and that only one Israeli had actually died in the catastrophe, while there were an estimated 199 dead from Columbia and 428 from the Philippines.
It is a statistical impossibility, even if the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the Jerusalem Post had grossly overestimated the number of Israelis there by 3,00 or 400 percent, there still should have still been one thousand Israelis there at the time of the attacks.
Newsbytes, a news service of the Washington Post, titled "Instant Messages To Israel Warned Of WTC Attack." The Israeli daily, Ha'aretz, also confirmed the prior warnings to Israel, and confirmed that the FBI is investigating the warnings.
The articles detailed that an Israeli messaging firm, Odigo, with offices in both the World Trade Center and in Israel, received a number of warnings just two hours before the attack.. who would have warned Israelis of the impending attack, if not Mossad?
.. Scrutiny of the WTC victims lists, does indeed expose a dearth of Jewish names!
Maybe they failed to get the warnings that were distributed via Odigo Hebrew language messaging, via text messages, and from the pulpit of NY synagogues the Friday before!
So if we take the official toll of around 3,000 dead and divide by the four hundred dead Jews, we arrive at a figure of around one in twelve, while the Jew population of New York is usually stated to be twelve and a half percent or around one in eight.
Add the unknown number of Jews with non Jewish names who perished to the list, to bring the number to parity .. However the official death toll of some under 3,000 dead is a gross underestimation!
Ok now we re compute the figures using the upper estimate above, which is by no means the highest figure since Peter Jennings, in consultation with NY Port Authority persons on late afternoon of the same day, made an estimate of around eighty thousand dead!
So divide the four hundred into fifty thousand, and we find that only one in 125 were Jews, whereas using the same total Jewish population of NY as twelve and a half percent, there should have been around four thousand dead Jews!
Using Peter Jennings upper estimate of eighty thousand dead, and using the official number of four hundred dead Jews, only one in two hundred was a Jew, and there should have been around 6400 dead Jews .. So quite obviously the official death toll of some under 3,000, was tailored to fit the number of Jew dead!
I am gonna advance the notion that the four hundred Jews who died at the WTC on 911 were warned, they realized that the scope of the disaster and the magnitude of the treachery, would stain the Jewish nation and people forever, and that they chose to die with their work comrades rather than be part of it all.
The other notion that I entertain is that they were suicide Zionists who stayed in the building, and it was they who went about throwing ppl out of the windows at Cantor Fitzgerald for instance.
