A former MI5 intelligence officer who has said that the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were orchestrated by the U.S. government “as a pretext for war and… to erode our freedom” has been removed from a June 6 United Nations panel discussion in New York.

B’nai B’rith International, a Jewish humanitarian, human rights and advocacy group, had written to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and to the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations to request that the 9/11 conspiracy theorist, Annie Machon, be removed from the panel.

In addition to her views on 9/11, Machon is known for claiming the Israeli Mossad was behind the 1994 bombing of Israel’s embassy in London. “Her outrageous and offensive views do not deserve a prominent platform—let alone in the city most scarred by the horrific events of 9/11,” B’nai B’rith said in a statement after the announcement of Machon’s removal from the program.

  • Utterly disgusting that special interest groups and organised, moneyed lobbyists are able to corruptly silence and censor the views of so many people.
    When are we going to strike back.
    Ban Ki-Moon is such a compliant sycophant!
    Pathetic!!!

    It’s quite obvious that when such a tiny minority can wield such influence as these “kosher” groups do(ie…JDL prevents George Galloway from entering Canada) it speaks volumes as to who really runs things.

  • Since when does holding views that some people find outrageous constitute a reason for taking action against participation in a discussion? This is censorship, failure to recognize freedom of speech.

    Much of the 9/11 story is not based on solid evidence and Ms. Machon has every right to question it, along with millions of other people who share her doubts. Numbers of high-ranking people support the newly emerging evidence, based on FOIA requests and unclassified documents, uncovered by the academic 24-member 9/11 Consensus Panel. See: “Eminent New Honorary Members Join 9/11 Consensus Panel: Italian Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, French Director Mathieu Kassovitz, and Author James W. Douglass,” http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130608-901635.html

  • For further info on the 911 subject on what Annie Machon knows please order Christpher Bollyn’s timely book : 911 Deception at amazon or bollyn.com

  • Of course it’s a conspiracy as we are now seeing what the DOJ has done to AP by spying on them & the USG IRS altering the 2012 presidential election.

    A TIME TO STAND by Oliver is a must read on how the USG tyranny has broadened to ignoring 9/11 & how Americans are being lied too so I recommend the book as a must read for everyone to know what our govt. is secretly doing!

    9/11 will ultimately have a whistleblower surface & the truth will come out, but I fear that it will be years & someone is on their death bed when it happens.

  • Rabbitnexus

    What are they afraid of? The truth obviously.

  • Kenzob Breaze

    The article makes a false statement, by stating…”B’nai B’rith International, a Jewish humanitarian, human rights and advocacy group…”. Nothing could be further from the truth!

  • Jeff Simpson

    So let me get this straight. A Human Rights group had someone removed for exercising their Human Right to Free Speech?

  • barrie singleton

    All comment is suspect so I shall confine myself to saying that I have listen to Annie Manchon as an audience member, and met her personally. I do not doubt her integrity, but then I am a sucker for beauty. . .

  • Roscoe Holskey

    You’re kidding me! You mean Jews are against free speech?

  • We ought to know by now, the Elite can’t have the truth shoved in people’s faces. They might wise up and get pissed at what the Elite are doing to our world. One thing curious though, the “Bible” refers to a major conflict between NWO Satanism and the believers in God and Christ! The Satanist believe that battle will be between Allah and God and they will just sit on the sidelines and watch. Once WW3, is over they take control of whatever is left over. If there is any truth in the Bible, the NWO Satanists better watch their backs, especially the Elite Illuminati!

    • Pretty stupid aren’t you Greg! Allah is the Arabic word for God the same way aloo is the Indian word for potato. Christians in the middle east refer to God as Allah. Fool!

      • I think it’s YOU who is the fool Sabre, and really, it’s not a nice thing to say even if you think it, even if you had cause to think it.
        The word ‘stupid’ usually applies most to the people most fond of using it – by the way.

        The distinction that Greg Olsen was making was quite clear and a reasonable way to express it, not that I agree with what he said; I just thought the ad hominem was pretty ugly.

  • It doesn’t help the case to censor someone. In the United States we are guarantied the freedom of expression, and yet in New York, a foreign power suspended that right. This would seem to indicate that New York is no longer functionally a part of the United States. Whom is New York now occupied by, and what is our government that has sworn to uphold the constitution doing to liberate that occupied territory?

    • RealityCheck

      Someone has to say NO to blood libels. Freedom of Speech, even by pure First Amendment standards, has some limits.

  • paul jackson

    if any one knows this woman knows dont forget that just because she has left the inteligent services she still has friends in mi5 mi6 and i would say that thay are very surpotive of her, come on people the evidence is all there but i would say that you cant blame bushes goverment thier is a lot of blackmail going on so if you know what bush was up to in his younger days then its very easy to control him

  • Machon is probably disinfo/gatekeeping anyhow. Anyone who says that 9/11 was an inside job but fails to mention Mossad and the Jew’s central role in the attacks is highly suspect.

  • This is how the authorities treated Galileo: refusing to look at the evidence but nevertheless silencing the one presenting it.

  • Excellent – It says more about B’nai B’rith than about the 9/11 Truth Movement. Something for the Algemeiner to investigate.

    From your ‘About’ page: “This bold approach includes investigative reporting, thought-provoking features and long-felt opinions, presenting unconventional and unique voices on politics and the social and cultural life of the American and international Jewish community.”

    Why indeed are there so many contradictions in the official version of events concerning 9/11, and why do people believe them?

  • Well, as a former MI5 officer, you are not supposed to be a whistleblower, that much is clear.

    Also it’s clear that the gap between what people know and what UN and politicians claim happened and is happening is growing.

    It will not be long untill this will turn against them and these times will be remembered as the very dark times of universal deceit.

  • Welcome to the Jeu World Order

    • Judaism is NOT Zionism!
      The NWO is not a Jewish phenomenon.
      Pause long enough to know who kicked you before you bite – always a good practice.
      The People Who Own Western Capitalism are demonstrably psychopathic, Zionism is an allay and tool just as is the US Military and Government. Jews are victims by their association with Zionism no less than the American people are victims by their association with the US government and military.
      Follow the money.

  • Jim Liberty

    The one voice idea of this anti information and anti freedom organization is an insult to the intelligence of the people of NYC and all Americans. B’nai B’rithers are modern day book and witch burners.

  • An American Jew

    Jakob Heidi Madsen

    It actually comes at a GREAT and MONUMENTAL surprise given the immoral nature of the UN and its associated bodies that the UN actually did listen to the “Zionists” and removed this retard from the panel.

    Usually the UN not only leaves mental and moral midgets on the UN associated committees and NGOs, but they typically put them in charge.

  • UNATCO will be ruling us soon. remember the password: smashthestate

  • Harv Oswald

    Funny, Hillary told us that Bill and Monica were just a Right wing Conspiracy. Obviously her Conspiracy Theory didn’t hold up and yet she’s Secretary of State. huh, wonder why no one complained about that one?????

  • Vhen vill de sufferink shtop.

  • Offensive? After recent findings that the US government was behind the assassination of MLK, this should be deemed anything but offensive. Denying discussion on this topic is offensive to the peoples’ freedom.

  • Brian Schoenrock

    Powerful entities may be able to censure those who believe in science ahead of “government experts” when it comes to how steel framed, concrete buildings collapsed at near free fall speed.

    It only serves to further undermine the credibility of information offered by government sources and corporate media.

    How ironic….the US public is told that we need to train our young people to be well versed in science and math. Yet when one applies this knowledge to the 911 atrocity, the entire accepted narrative of the event is exposed as a convenient lie.

    Talk about schizoid. Sheesh. There is no trust in government left, accept for fools and tools.

  • Another example of the perpetrators still controlling the dialogue. This person is a former insider, an MI5 INTELLIGENCE officer. Not your average moron. Doesn’t the UN membership know how to google Talmudic Judaism? The internet is just like a gun, you have to pull the trigger to get something to happen. Get moving!

  • Why would a zionist organization, protecting the views of a micro minorit,y take exception to a person that does not buy into the official fairy tale?
    Occam’s Razor suggests the zionists have something to hide and are guilty as hell.

  • It should come as no surprise that troofers like Jakob Hede Madaen and Dan Hopkins one way or another end up projecting all their loathing of their own personal shortcomings on a conspiracy scapegoating Jews and Israel by subscribing uncritically to the promotion of canards, lies and propaganda. Unfortunately for them, despite the encouragement they receive from locating a cyber community of the like minded, away from the Internet they remain miserable and obnoxious clowns who achieve nothing in life and become repulsive bores to all who get to know them. Of course, they then pin the blame for their day in day out miserable lives and failures on Jews and Israel. Sometimes like minded clowns get political power for example in Nazi Germany, present day Iran and North Korea to name a few and that always turns out to be hunky dory and peachy keen, doesn’t it?

  • We’ll learn upon th December.

  • So when will the UN follow suit with Special Raporeur Falk?

  • Jakob Hede Madsen

    It should come as no surprise that the zionists wield a lot of power in the UN.

    • which is why so many resolutions get passed against it in the GA and why such human rights paradises as Iran and Libya chair the Human Rights subcommittee?

      Tin foil hat-wearing F-wit.

    • The UN is their creation…

    • It was not the UNO which ended Apartheid in South Africa but instead an international sports boycott. Then 50,000 Jews promptly left South Africa and came to Britain. Coincidence?

  • Dan Hopkins

    Illegal US gov cashed a KITE check on 911

    cut the strings and dont pay bills! not with blood money

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]

    JNS.org – Alan Gross used to be nothing more to me than a tragic headline. When I started my position at this news service in July 2011, Gross had been imprisoned in Cuba since December 2009 for what that country called “crimes against the state.” Gross, a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development, went to Cuba to help the Jewish community there access the Internet. After his arrest, he received a trial he describes as a “B movie,” […]
