2,733. 9/19/2001

According to an article in The New York Times on September 19, 2001: “All of bin Laden’s statements [following 9/11] received wide dissemination around the world, yet in the Middle East a commonly held view remains that the Trade Center attacks were not the work of Arab terrorists, but the work of–you guessed it–the Jews. This was deduced from the supposed fact that 4,000 Jews did not show up for work on the day of the attacks. [Lead hijacker] Mohammed Atta’s father, a lawyer in Cairo, told reporters that the attacks were probably the work of Israeli intelligence.”
