I have now received a translation of the portion of the Greek newspaper that I have
scanned and published below from Evi Martyn, an internationally celebrated pianist, who
was born in Greece and who provided me with the copy that I have scanned. If any
questions remain, let me know, because she has offered to address any remaining issues.
I believe this settles the matter--the challenges issued by Michael Morrissey, who has
not only deleted his posts here by resigning as a member but has also banned me as
a member of 911aletheia.ning.com--quite decisively! I will indicate each part of the page
to which the translation pertains, starting with the running head at the very top left:
"Euripides: 'Accept the time' [roughly, we must accept what happens]"
At the top right of the running head, it states:
"Weekend 22-23 September 2001 Alpha One" [the name of the newspaper]"
The heading of the article cross most of the page:
"ISRAELI PRESS: We Saved 4,000 of Our Own and ARIEL SHARON"
The subheading in smaller type to the right/center of the page:
"Confirmation of the Information and Updating [by] All European Governments Asked of the
Foreign Minister George Papandreou [and] the President of L.A.O.S., G. Karatrzaferis"
[where "L.A.O.S." stands for Secular Christian Alert, a Greek political party]
First paragraph (summary paragraph) at the top of the first column:
"The confirmation of Israeli Press [reports] in regard to the absence of 4,000 Jewish
people who worked in the Twin Towers the day of the attack is asked of the Greek Foreign
Minister [and] the President of L.A.O.S., Mr. Karatzaferis, in a petition to the Greek
The story begins with the second paragraph of the first column and continues as follows:
"The complete text of the question is as follows:
"Because our country, like the rest of the countries of the planet, under the new dogma
[policies] of the Americans, as we all heard President George W. Bush announce to the
Congress: 'Nations must choose--they are either with us or with the terrorists.'
"Because since September 11, the day of the tragic events in [shift to next column] New
York and Washington, new conditions have arisen that affect our country as well,
particularly because of the 2004 Olympiad in Athens, and due to the fact we are neighbors
with Arab countries, I bring to your attention the following:
[Here begins the paragraph whose first part is outlined by pen]
"Two Israeli newspapers, the 'HA'APETZ' on Tuesday, September 18, and 'YADIOT AHRANDT' on
Wednesday, September 19, refer [discuss/assert/describe], among other things, to the
"4,000 Jews who work [shifting to the next column] in the Twin Towers did not show up for
work the day of the attack. Also the visit of Ariel Sharon to New York, who was going to
attend a Zionist celebration that day, was cancelled. In addition to that, 5 Jews were
arrested four hours after the event, when they were caught recording the disaster.
"According to these newspapers, the 4,000 [shifting to the next column] Jews and Ariel
Sharon were prevented by the Secret Service of Israel [presumably the Mossad], which had
advanced knowledge, and consequently they were saved.
Final heading in the fourth column: "Questions for the Foreign Minister"
"1. Are you aware of these publications?
"2. Have you confirmed their reports?
"3. Have you notified accordingly the rest of the 14 European governments?
"4. How are you going to handle this matter in view of the threat of an endless war?"
I shall now copy what I have published here and sent it to Evi Martyn to verify that I
have accurately conveyed her translation. She also observed that the photograph at the
top center of this article is of Mr. Karatzareris, the president of L.A.O.S.
