This is heart-rending topic for me since I lived within 50 miles of NY. Our family-friend died on 90th floor leaving a 8 month old baby. One more relative was injured, he was walking next to the building when the first plane hit. One couple we knew closely missed the attack since they couldn't find parking spot at the train station. Another who works at OTC overslept that day and missed the train to work because his wife forgot to set the alarm previous night. The days that follows were really crazy, all of us foreign looking people had to endure stares from strangers, really nasty racist comments, some people got beaten up and even killed. The scary part was many of those arab terrorists looked like Indians.

Default some facts

1) New York City has 11 letters.

2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.

3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to
destroy the Twin
Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.

4) George W Bush has 11 letters.

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets
more interesting:

1) New York is the 11th state.

2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers
was flight number
11.

3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 =
11

4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was
carrying 65 passengers.
6+5 = 11

5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it
is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11

6) The date is equal to the US emergency services
telephone number
911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your
own mind:

1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-
jacked planes was
254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.

2) September 11 is day number 254 of the
calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4
= 11.

3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3
+ 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.

4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after
the Twin Towers
incident.

Now this is where things get totally eerie:

The most recognised symbol for the US, after the
Stars & Stripes, is
the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the
Quran, the Islamic
holy book:

"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken
a fearsome Eagle.
The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the
lands of Allah and lo,
while some of the people trembled in despair still
more rejoiced: for
the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah
and there was
peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.

Still unconvinced about all of this..?! Try this and
see how you feel
afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:

Open Microsoft Word and do the following:

1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight
number of the first
plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.

2. Highlight the Q33 NY.

3. Change the font size to 48.

4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS

I know this is a very old thread but I just found out about this and I must say it is pretty amusing. While Q33 NY does work, it is NOT the flight number for the first flight to hit WTC. The numbers have just been doctored to make it look like so considering that many people never really check facts from a forward. Not to say that I checked them myself but saw this in another forum.

Prajesh

after watching the videos i seriously felt that there is something fishy in 9/11 attack.

and americans also do have a history of unsolved mysteries so we shouldnt take them for granted.

e.g. Marilyn Monroe mystery is still debatable

You are comparing Marilyn Monroe with the 9/11 attack?

OK I know now this is an old thread!!, but just one correction, the verse that has been posted here is incorrect.

verse number 9:011 is what it is called , is about Al-TAWBA (repentance, dispensation). I am Posting two link below, which gives clear examples what exaclty it means, with what the verse says and the comments!! please dont take me wrong, i am not suporting anything but the truth about Qur'an.

I would also like to chime in and say that I too have watched the "Loose Change" video. It is good that we are at least thinking of what has happenned.

It is also sad that many Americans dont know or dont care about this. They are content with the official explanation and do not question things further. Any theory like this is immediately labelled as as "consipracy theory", and the person is deemed an un-patriotic American.

It is truly scary to know that the rights of people in America is almost NIL. The Supreme Court ruled yesterday in a case the the Fourth Amendment rights of a person does not stand. There goes another Constitutional right. But is anyone bothered by all of this. No one.
