Conspiracy paranoia inspired by the Qur'an's demonization of the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82). It is not a far jump from this lunacy to Alex Kane and Nathan Lean. "Grand Mufti of Lebanon Mohammed Rashid Qabbani: The Jews Orchestrated 9/11 and Were Behind Anti-Islam Film," from MEMRI, September 22 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Following are excerpts from a TV program with the Grand Mufti of Lebanon, Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, which aired on Al-Manar TV on September 22, 2012.
Mohammed Rashid Qabbani: Even though we call the Jews "People of the Book," they still deny the religion of Islam – even in the modern era. Why did secularism emerge in Europe in the days of Napoleon Bonaparte? History shows us that the Jews were behind secularism, because they opposed the authority of the church, against Christianity.
The Jews are behind all of this. What is scandalous is that this film was funded by 100 Jews, who paid five million dollars.
It is said that the Jews orchestrated the bombing of the Twin Towers, because they wanted to justify the persecution of Muslims worldwide.
