Conspiracy Theories

The best conspiracy theories always have some truth in them, no matter how implausible the rest is, it is the small amount of truth that makes them believable. When we do not like to hear something then anything said to the contrary is grasped without hesitation in an effort to refute the facts. When America does something evil to a Muslim, its flags are burnt along with effigies of its leaders. When Muslims do something evil there is at first silence and then denial; no Muslim could or would do such an act and it must be a conspiracy against us! The attitude of “we are not capable of barbarity” is easily refuted by looking at our history and the atrocities perpetrated by the likes of Amir Timur (Tamerlane) who copied his ancestors by piling up the skulls of his victims outside the walls of the cities he conquered (mostly Muslim cities).
9/11 is just such a situation of denial. Grab anything some retired general or engineer has to say about it and we have our excuse to blame someone else. Facts are replaced by conjecture, and we do not hesitate to ignore the Quran when it suits us:-

10:36 The majority of the people follow nothing but conjecture. Surely, conjecture can never at all be a substitute for the Truth. Allah is Knower of how they act (and forge).

51:9 Wanders in thought aimlessly he who deceives himself.
51:10 Belittle themselves those who live by guesswork.
51:11 Careless in an abyss, they know not that they know not.

47:14 Is, then, he who lives by self-evident Truth from his Lord like the one to whom his disruptive behaviour seems pleasing, while such people are only following their own desires?

The one conspiracy theory I see in this is that the American authorities knew that a terrorist plot was going to happen and did nothing to stop it. Similarly, when the American people were against the USA joining the Second World War, the CIA (they are not called “intelligence” for nothing) moved some ships down to Pearl Harbour to entice a war hungry Japan to attack them. This succeeded, the American people changed their position and the rest is history.

Let someone else do your dirty work and you can wash your hands of any guilt, but you get what you wanted! A New World Order, run by America, or is it another conspiracy (Zionism)?
