Wait, I thought it was da Joooos?
Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian cleric Hisham Al-‘Ashri, which aired on Al-Tahrir TV on January 10, 2013. Al-‘Ashri, who recently returned to Egypt from the U.S., has established a committee for the promotion of virtue and prevention of vice.
Interviewer: Does the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11 constitute Jihad?
Hisham Al-‘Ashri: Well, it depends who did it. Jihad is only for Muslims. They even say “Jihad” in English because they have no equivalent.
I call on everybody to type in Google “911”, and then click. You will get an incredible amount of videos, documents, and documentaries made by Americans – not Muslims, Arabs, or people of Arab origin – proving that the Islamists had nothing to do with 9/11, unless they were targeted.
The two planes that hit the World Trade Center were military planes, not civilian ones.
Interviewer: So, those who led this…
They were controlled by…
Hisham Al-‘Ashri: By the US airforce.
