Last week, only days before US President Barack Obama was scheduled to visit Israel and Palestine, a Palestinian newspaper published an op-ed piece praising Hitler, and blaming Freemasons for the 9/11 attacks.
In the shocking op-ed, published by the official PA Daily, by Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher claims that al-Qaeda was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the US, but that they were carried out by Freemasons (members of The Masonic fraternity). The fraternity was founded in London in 1717. It later spread across Europe, and has branches (or “Lodges”) in most countries. It is banned in most Muslim-majority countries, although Freemasonry is permitted in Turkey. Typically, candidates for membership must believe in God, although, transcending religious boundaries (always a slap in the face to extremists), members can be of any religion, including Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist. Freemasonry was the subject of Dan Brown’s novel, The Lost Symbol.

Nevertheless, in the anti-Masonic and anti-”Zionist” rant, Abu Zaher talks of “the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons, which was mentioned in the Illuminati game cards ten years before it took place, and in over 15 Zionist and Freemason Hollywood-produced films in the 1990s.”
