A Sober Analysis Of Some Very Troubling Thoughts

- “In this short book, I argue that there is strong evidence that the events of 11th September represent a terrorism of a kind not currently being discussed, and include the involvement of agents and agencies not publicly imagined as being associated with such acts. I believe that this suspicion, voiced by many others, must be taken seriously and its public disproof demanded by all concerned citizens and NGOs.” Author Michael Rowbotham writes. See... Michael Rowbotham: Written In Belief [1]

Howard’s End: Winding Up Islamic Financing Has Special Problems

- While government officials in the West scour the records of banks and politicians introduce new laws to halt the flow of money used for terrorist activities, an ancient system of exchange which the West finds impossible to control is still used by hundreds of millions of people. Maree Howard writes. See... Howard's End: An Invisible Money Network [1]
