The Strange World of Diana Ralph
We have mentioned Diana Ralph on a couple of occasions, she was a member of the editorial board of Steven Jones' Journal of 9/11 Studies, and has written a bit on conspiracy theories. Mostly I was just wondering what exactly it is that a PhD in Social Work does anyway. Now Jonathan Kay, the Canadian journalist who is actively researching a book on the truthers, does some more investigating into her strange views.
But it gets worse when we find out more about Diana Ralph. She is the IJV co-founder, co-chairwoman and "coordinator" who boasts of having personally solicited the "generous donation" from the United Church.
Did the UCC do their due diligence on Ms. Ralph and her group before they forked over the cash?
Let's take a look.In an essay that this IJV honcho contributed to the 2006 book The Hidden History of 9-11, Ms. Ralph argues that the Sept. 11 attacks were not perpetrated by al-Qaeda, but rather by American and Israeli conservatives seeking to implement "a secret, strategic plan to position the U.S. as a permanent unilateral super-power poised to seize control of Eurasia, and thereby the entire world."
And who created the master plan for all this? Zionists plotting on Israeli soil. "The concept of a 'war on terror' pre-dates 9-11 by 22 years," Ms. Ralph writes in her exposé. "Its seeds were first planted in 1979 at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism (JCIT) organized by Bejamin Netanyahu (future Israeli Prime Minister). [Subsequent Israeli actions] hauntingly foreshadowed the 9-11 'attacks' and the Bush 'war on terror.' "
