A few days ago, on the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack, fabricated news emerged from Pakistan-based media outlet, paknews.com, against the Jewish community. The fake news was further circulated by Pak-based OSINTs like @occult_agenda. This news aimed to defend the terrorists responsible for the 2001 attacks by promoting a conspiracy theory. The false claim indicated that nearly 4,000 Israelis working at the World Trade Center were mysteriously absent on that tragic day, implying prior knowledge of the attacks. This claim is not only fake but also baseless.
(Pakistan – 19 September 2001, Paknews news site) Nearly 4000 Israeli employed in World Trade Center in New York were absent on the day the incident of air attacks took place in US on September 11. Mainstream media announced that it was fake newshttps://t.co/uGwrSGTozd pic.twitter.com/YTGZxftuk4— Occult Agenda (@occult_agenda) September 11, 2023
Debunking the Fabricated 9/11 News against the Jewish Community
According to a report by BBC, published as part of their coverage on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, this theory falsely asserts that no Jewish individuals were among the victims of the attacks because 4,000 Jewish employees at the World Trade Center had allegedly received advance notice not to come to work. The proponents of this theory go on to suggest that either the Israeli government orchestrated the attacks to provoke the U.S. into attacking its regional enemies or that powerful Jewish elites, working from the shadows, were responsible. However, the facts tell a different story.
Out of the 2,071 victims who worked at the World Trade Center and lost their lives that tragic day, 119 were confirmed to be Jewish, with at least an additional 72 believed to be Jewish. This data corresponds to approximately 9.2% of the victims, which is consistent with the estimated 9.7% of New York’s commuting population believed to be Jewish at the time. It is essential to note that this information comes from research conducted by BBC’s documentary series, “Conspiracy Files.” Read the BBC article, by clicking here [archive].
Contrary to the false claims perpetuated by the fabricated news, there is no evidence to support the notion that Jewish individuals were complicit in the 9/11 attacks or that they had any prior knowledge. These unfounded allegations not only distort historical facts but also have the potential to incite hatred and division among communities.
In conclusion, the recent revival of this fabricated news report by Pakistan-based media outlets is an attempt to defend terrorists by falsely accusing a specific community. It is crucial to rely on accurate and verified information, especially when discussing sensitive topics like the 9/11 attacks. False narratives can only hinder the pursuit of truth and justice.
