Subject: WORLD PEACE MEDITATION on the 11th of September 2002
Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002

My Dear Friends

Just a reminder about our WORLD PEACE MEDITATION which we have arranged for September 11th

---

Next Wednesday, as you all know, is the first anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. None of us will ever forget the scenes of utter carnage which were devastatingly shown on our television screens wherever in the world we happened to be on that day!

All of us, who did not have loved ones, or friends, working in the Twin Towers that fateful day, cannot possibly imagine the grief and heartache of those who suffered the personal loss of their husband or wife, one of their children, or even close business colleagues or family friends.

But we shall NEVER forget - and so next Wednesday, September 11th, 2002 at 10pm (your time) wherever you are and whatever you may be doing - I would like to invite you to join my wife, Chooi-Chin, and I in a WORLD PEACE MEDITATION.

In your WORLD PEACE MEDITATION please send out all your healing thoughts, energies and prayers to all the World Leaders, especially including George Bush of the US and Tony Blair of the UK - that they may be guided to act wisely in all their efforts to create a Peaceful World and Environment in which we can all live together in love and harmony - as spiritual brothers and sisters.

With much love and many healing blessings

Subject: A spiritual take on 9-11
Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002

Hello dear Jean,

First I need to honor you for the incredible information you consistently share with us. What an amazing and dedicated lightworker you are! Bless you a million times!

The reason I am writing you is because I have an inspiration which I'd like to run by you. I have just completed my 2nd book, Drops of Magic where my conversations with Gadi continue. It is a follow-up to my first book Shalom my Love. The last chapter and the epilogue speak specifically of 9-11, and I was thinking that you might want to share this information. Perhaps there is a possibility that if anyone is interested in reading the entire book, I can offer it to them as a download. I am in the process of putting into e-book format, but, in the meantime, I could send them what I am sending you, and they could pay a nominal fee into my Paypal account. Anyway, dearheart, YOU are the spiritual cyber guru ((wink)), so I'll wait to hear from you. Thanks ever so much! If you feel there is something here that will assist with planetary healing, please let me know.

Shalom, abundance & joy,

Sunny

Let's stop talking, for just a moment, about terrorism, Iraq, the ABM Treaty, Johannesburg -- the news cycle of the day. Let's think about longer term visions of a world that works for everyone. We maintain that redesigning, democratizing, and empowering the United Nations is THE most promising strategy for ending genocide forever, building enduring world peace, and moving toward a just and sustainable global civilization. And we believe that the Great Story of the 21st Century will be the fading of national loyalties, the dawning of planetary patriotism, and the triumph of allegiance to humanity.

Subject: News of pro-western governments bombing their own people to blame on others is finally getting out
Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002

Slowly but steadily, news reports are surfacing on how pro-western governments, lead by the US, Britain and Israel have been terrorizing their own people and blaming it on an arabic enemy. Also, note that seismic analysis of the 9/11 world trade center collapse indicates two explosions. Witnesses report hearing two explosions as well.

Kudos to MSNBC and the UK Guardian for providing some of the reports CNN wouldn't touch. George W. Bush should be immediately impeached and tried for treason. The Patriot Act should be repealed. The Homeland Security Act should be abandoned. There should be NO invasion of Iraq or Saudi Arabia.

9.11 OVERVIEW, AND CONSEQUENCES

By Boudewijn Wegerif

The lines of induced terror from 9.11 snake on.

One consequence: At Portland, Oregon, on August 22, thousands of peaceful protestors descended upon the Hilton Hotel where Mr Bush was attending a political fundraiser - among the protestors were pregnant women, parents with infants and small children, elderly citizens and citizens in wheelchairs.

A father witnessed:

"We brought our children to a peaceful protest, we stayed in the back and we were walking on the sidewalk. The march stopped at the intersection of 2nd and Alder. We could not see why from our position on the SW corner of the intersection. Police quickly moved up behind us and a moment or two later sprayed pepper spray into the crowd from the NE corner of the intersection. The crowd ran toward us to escape the spray.

"We asked the officer closest to us how we should exit the intersection. He pointed and said to exit to the NE, into the spraying police opposite him. As the crowd pressed toward us I yelled to him to let us through (south on 2nd) because we had three small children.

"He looked at me, and drew out his can from his hip and sprayed directly at me. I was at an angle to him and the spray hit my right eye and our three-year-old who I was holding in my right arm. In the same motion he turned the can on my wife who was holding our 10-month old baby and doused both of their heads entirely from a distance of less than 3 feet. My six-year-old daughter was holding my left hand and was not hit directly.

"We ended up on the sidewalk a few feet down Alder with fellow protesters holding my screaming children and pouring water on our eyes. . . "

A teacher from Boston testified:

"The streets of Portland were filled on August 22nd by average American citizens seeking to inform the President of their disfavor regarding the manner in which he is governing their country. They were rewarded with the business end of a billy club, a face-full of pepper spray, and the jarring impact of a rubber bullet.

"If America needed one more example of the cancer that has been chewing through the guts of our most basic freedoms since Mr. Bush assumed office, they can look to Portland. The right to freely assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances has been rescinded at the point of a gun."

I have the above from http://www.gulufuture.com/portland

Another consequence of 9.11: Get Saddam Hussein - Bomb Iraq.

There are daily bombing sorties by U.S. and British planes. The Pentagon denied an attack by 100 planes on Friday with the statement that fewer than 24 planes had been involved in fly-overs. So when does the bombardment (I do not wish to call it a 'war') begin?

On board his plane, heading for talks with US President George W. Bush on plans for an offensive against Iraq, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said on Saturday: "We haven't the faintest idea of what has been going on for the last four years other than what we know is an attempt to carry on rebuilding these weapons but the details of it is something that the Iraqi regime should be forced to disclose."

I read that as a clear example of what list member Dick Eastman calls 'dysfunctional deleterious plutocracy'. Another word for deleterious: Noxious.

"Why would the world's richest and most powerful nation consider attacking one of the world's poorest?" asks David Orchard, an organic farmer and author of The Fight for Canada, in an E-letter forwarded by David Weston.

"There is no evidence that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction or that it has the intention or capacity to use them," Orchard writes. "(In 1998, International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors declared Iraq did not possess nuclear weapons technology.) No evidence, in fact, that Iraq is anything other than it appears - a war-devastated, essentially disarmed nation under a harsh regime of sanctions and long and constant air bombardment.

"Iraq does however possess some of the world's largest reserves of oil , which it nationalized (with compensation), in the 1970s. Iraq has since refused U.S. demands to privatize the industry."

Orchard describes Iraq as a small, virtually landlocked country. "Iraq's population of 20 million has an average income of under $1 per day. (Doctors receive $5 per month; unemployment exceeds 50%.) The majority of the population, according to the World Health Organization, is reduced to semi-starvation. Publicly stripped of most of its military capacity, inspected for weapons 9000 times since 1991, Iraq has also been subjected to bombardment by U.S. and British war planes almost weekly ever since the Gulf war ended in 1991. The bombings over the north and south of the country have targeted everything from sheep to the shepherds guarding them.

"Impoverished, weak and vulnerable, Iraq is incapable of defending or even flying over these so-called no-fly zones covering approximately 2/3 of its territory. The once prosperous Iraqi economy has been bled white by war and a decade of sanctions - the most punitive in modern history. During this decade, over a million Iraqis, mostly children, have died a painful death and millions more are suffering severe damage and face drastically shortened lives."

To be informed and active, from your computer even, in trying to stop the dysfunctional plutocrats from doing their noxious thing, particularly in the immediate future against Iraq, visit http://www.internationalanswer.org and http://www.Truthout.org.

There are regular updates on the mounting tension in the Middle East, and an interview with Noam Chomsky on Iraq at http://www.middleeast.org.

"The Coup of September 11, 2001 is a success," poetises Jeff Moebus in a posting at http://www.gulufuture.com/portland

"All near-term tactical and strategic objectives have been achieved.

"The search for the truth about The Event that day --- what actually happened... how it happened... who made it happen... who let it happen... --- was diverted within hours of the collapse of the North Tower, quietly aborted, and ultimately abandoned.

"The People have been rendered 'comfortably numb' as they embrace, resource, and surrender to the architects, engineers, craftsmen, and cheerleaders of this so-called War Against so-called Terrorism abroad and at home."

---

It is easy to go along with the idea that 'the People' have been rendered 'comfortably numb'. However, there is little to no comfort in denial. Apart from there being many loving truth-seekers, willing to take the pepper spray and rubber bullet, it is more likely that the majority of people in the U.S., and elsewhere, are in a state of denial about what happened on 9.11. They know but still wave the flag rather than consciously accept that Bush and Cheyney and many of their plutocrat cronies were, if not directly responsible for, certainly complicit with the rogue elements in the CIA and Mossad who mounted or helped the bin Laden-led terrorist network mount the 9.11. attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

List member David Eastman - eastman@bentonrea.com - is a truth-seeker. In an E-letter of September 3 to his growing list, he writes: "The pentagon security cam video sequence is 'smoking-gun' evidence, establishing the September 11 mass-murder as an 'inside-job' frame-up conspiracy to involve the U.S. in a for-profit war."

For the evidence, Dock Eastman points readers to http://www.msnbc.com/news/720851.asp?cp1=1

Ted Gunderson, a retired FBI Senior Special Agent, has revealed that a female attorney working on proposed anti-terrorism legislation during the George Bush Sr. administration publicly stated that people would have to be killed before Congress would pass it. The story is at http://disc.server.com/discussion.cgi?id=149495;article=32703

You do not have to search far to find enough eye and ear witness evidence about what happened on 9.11 to know that there has been a huge, monumental cover-up of administrative treachery.

"I can now give 25 compelling reasons to indict Daddy Bush, Cheney, the Pentagon and the Carlyle Group for the real terror behind 911," writes Brian Downing Quig - quig@dcia.com - to the American Patriot Friends Network - apfn@apfn.org - on September 6.

"Daddy Bush and Cheney were in the Situation Room at the White House during the terror attacks (during the 84 minutes between the second WTC hit and the Pentagon hit while a stand down order was issued to the Air Force to supersede established intercept procedures for planes that stray off course).

"Junior Bush was reading stories to grade school children during the attacks. He knew one plane had crashed into the WTC when the reading started. When his top aid Andrew Card whispered in his ear about the second plane hitting the WTC this was caught on videotape and is widely available on the Internet. Junior Bush only looks up and nods and then goes back to reading stories to the kids for 25 more minutes!! It clearly looks more like Card is informing Bush of an expected event.

"There was for example no time for Card to add and there are several other hijacked planes in the air.

"With Junior Bush at the grade school is the Director of the White House Situation Room where all military crises are managed. At the end of the 25 minutes of reading Bush goes immediately to the library of the school where a press conference was set. He says, "I called my Vice President and my FBI Director and the Governor of New York."

"This was a lie!! There was not enough time for that."

On 9.11 itself, the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, interviewed one of its New York-based reporters, Steve Evans, who was in the second tower when it was hit.

Evans reported: "I was at the base of the 2nd tower, the second tower that was hit. There was an explosion - I didn't think it was an explosion - but the base of the building shook. I felt it shake - then when we were outside, the second explosion happened and then there was a series of explosions. We can only wonder at the kind of damage - the kind of human damage - which was caused by those explosions - those series of explosions."

Hundreds of questions remain unanswered about what happened - literally hundreds. They have been listed by Paul Thompson in The Complete 9/11 Timeline, and are posted at many of the web sites that remain open to seeking out the truth about what happened. The original posting is at http://www.unansweredquestions.net/timeline

The Wire Editor at the Unanswered Questions web sites writes about Thompson' s effort: "As an authoritative reference work this timeline dispels the notion that theorists on 9/11 are working on the basis of supposition and prejudice, but rather shows clearly that unanswered questions relating to September 11th are probably the most vital issue currently facing the people of this planet. Online readers and email recipients of this posting are therefore encouraged to post links to this page, and to forward the email version of this as widely as possible."

Paul Thompson himself writes of his effort:

"To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened on 9/11. I have my theories and hunches, but it's an extremely complicated plot, and there are a number of plausible explanations for part or all of the story's aspects. - - - Not everything makes sense or fits neatly together. It's a story full of espionage, deceit, and brazen lies. But if there are forces out there tricking us, they can only succeed if we, the general public, remain ignorant and passive."

The Complete 9/11 Timeline started when Thompson saw the excellent timeline at the From the Wilderness website and began adding to it. He found that timeline to be a great resource, but it wasn't as comprehensive as he wanted. His version has since grown into something of a monster, probably 20 times the size of the original, but the inspiration still lies with From the Wilderness.

From the Wilderness is owned and edited by Michael Ruppert. Ruppert has produced an outstanding video on 9.11 and his public talks, with showings of the video, are usually to a full house with overflow. See http://www.fromthewilderness.com

Over the past several months, the original FTW website - http://www.copvcia.com - has been hacked continually, so they have moved to a new server. There are eight mirror sites, at http://www.copvcia.com/mirror_sites.html

"Beware of the words 'internal security', for they are the eternal cry of the oppressor." - Francois Voltaire, who sought to influence the leaders of the French Revolution. The quotation is in a recent E-letter to his 9.11 list by Larry Morningstar - mana7@opendoor.com

---

Included in an E-letter to list members by radical current affairs commentator Angie Carlson - angie1@planetsos.com - is this quotation from Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II:

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."

Is that so? It seems that it is going to have to be proven again, as it was against Hitler, Goering and company, that the dysfunctional, noxious behaviour of new world order plutocrats does not last forever. There was a weeding out of the German Nazis, and there will be a weeding out of like nasties in the U.S. and elsewhere.

In his articles on 9.11, U.K. investigative journalist Phil Donahue - donahueideas@msnbc.com, donahue@msnbc.com - encourages readers to flood the news media with emails asking them to investigate 9.11.

Subject: URGENT: Overview of Changes to Legal Rights (in the United §tates)
Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002

Alright, all you folks out there who think this concern about our losing our rights is just the whining of extremists. It is hard to believe that there are any such folks given what we see happening every day but sad to say there are.

So here is an article on this very subject from the ASSOCIATED PRESS! It is not from some obscure independent source. It is from the mainstream media!

There is no room to doubt that we have lost essential rights. The Constitution is being openly violated. Our Bill of Rights has been decimated.

We are in the exact same position as the "good Germans" were during the 30's. It was clear that Hitler was destroying their rights but they did nothing. Had they resisted earlier, they could have stopped Hitler's coup. The good Germans far outnumbered the NAZIS just as the good Americans far out number these sick folks who are trying to take over our country!

Ahh, you are against terrorism and support the government in its war against terrorists? Great. But you must know that YOU can be considered a terrorist and if you are you don't have a prayer of getting out of it. They will just pack you away without anyone knowing what happened to you and that will be it. Cmon. This is not a war against anyone but us. It is all about getting control over the American people. It should be clear as a bell to everyone at this point.

If we wait much longer it will be too late to resist. So what do you think? Change the channel to another game or get up and do something?

Your choice. And your children and grand children's lives will be immensely affected one way or the other.

Don Stacey

It will help if you send this message on to as many people as you can. Americans have to wake up before it is too late.

Overview of Changes to Legal Rights
By The Associated Press

September 5, 2002

Some of the fundamental changes to Americans' legal rights by the Bush administration and the USA Patriot Act following the terror attacks:

* FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigation.

* FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records requests.

* FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.

* RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.

* FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.

* RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.

* RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.

COULD THIS BE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT WILL SOON HAPPEN IN AMERICA... THESE IGNOMINOUS CRIMES AGAINST INNOCENT CIVILIANS MUST BE VIGOROUSLY DENOUNCED AND STOPPED

Israel Accused of Whitewash Over Palestinian Deaths

by Phil Reeves in Jerusalem

An internal inquiry by the Israeli army into the killing of 12 Palestinian civilians by its forces last week, including four fruit-pickers blown up by a tank shell packed with thousands of darts, has cleared the soldiers involved.

Investigations by the Israeli army into the killing or maiming of Arab civilians in the 23-month conflict have almost invariably resulted in whitewashes, but this did not diminish the condemnation with which yesterday's findings were greeted by Western sources, Israeli peace activists and Palestinian officials.

The inquiry said the "open-fire" orders that led the Israeli army to fire a 120mm air- burst shell packed with 3,000 flechettes (inch-long darts), at a Palestinian family in their camp in a fig orchard in the Gaza Strip, were "appropriate". So, too, were the orders given to the snipers who picked off four laborers in a West Bank quarry on Sunday, allegedly because they saw them cutting a fence. And so was the command issued to an Israeli death squad in a helicopter that killed two teenagers and two children aged six and 10 in a botched assassination.

The inquiry found that in the first two of these cases, both on Palestinian-controlled land inside the occupied territories invaded by the Israeli army, soldiers had acted because they identified Palestinians who were behaving "suspiciously", including being in an "unauthorized area" late at night, crawling towards an illegal Israeli settlement and infiltrating Israeli agricultural land.

An Israeli army statement did not confirm or deny using a tank flechette round. But The Independent has examined an X-ray of one victim. Darts were embedded in his chest and stomach. The deaths of the children caused by the helicopter missile strike, in the West Bank village of Tubas, were dismissed by the Israeli army as "collateral damage" that was "probably caused by a technical malfunction".

The inquiry was ordered by the Defense Minister, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, who complimented the Israeli army yesterday on its "thorough" work, a military statement said.

But Uri Avnery, an activist with the Israel pressure group Gush Shalom, said the three incidents were "manifestly illegal actions". He added: "If the army says its soldiers followed their standing orders, this shows their standing orders are manifestly wrong, and responsibility for all these actions rests on the army's high command."
