There are 114 chapters (suras) in the Koran. There are 30 parts as the early Muslims wanted the recitation of the entire Koran to be framed by a lunar month of 30 days.
So reader, turn to Chapter 9. It is called “Taubah” (Repentance…for sins). It is the only chapter out of the 114 which does not begin “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.”
When you get to verses (ayat) 109 and 110 (the same number of floors in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center) stop and read outloud:
(The infidels building’s) foundation rests on an undetermined brink
of a precipice ready to crumble down with those in it, to the fire of hell.
And Allah guides not the people who are polytheists.” (that’s us).
The building which they built will never cease to be a cause of hypocrisy
And doubt in their hearts, unless their hearts are cut to pieces.
And Allah is all-knowing and all-wise. (Verse 110)
Verily, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their
properties; for a price, for theirs shall be paradise. They fight in
Allah’s cause, so they kill and are killed” (Verse 111)
It is through these verses in the Koran that the 9/11 assassins and others communicated. These words in the Koran also served their religious justification to commit mass murder of 3,000 innocent people. These exact words are contained in a copy of a Koran published on the Arabian Peninsula where 15 of the hijackers were raised. This Koran was published in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It is not usually disseminated to western audiences.
The American people might wonder why this issue did not appear in the short nor the long version of the 9/11 official commission report. Was it because of incompetence? Was it because of a lack of human sources and informants? Or was it because they were instructed not to publish this data because of giving offense to Muslims? Whatever the reason, it should be discussed openly before the citizens of the United States.
