WASHINGTON, D.C. / ACCESSWIRE / September 11, 2020 / Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has been monitoring, translating, and documenting content about them from Middle East- and South Asia-based media. For the 10th anniversary of 9/11, in 2011, MEMRI launched its 9/11 Documentation Project, which examines the roots of the ideology that ultimately led to the attacks. The project features primary-source material from Arab and Islamic print, broadcast, and online media, and from other sources; together with the archive of MEMRI research from the past two decades, it comprises the world's most extensive collection of material on this and related subjects.
The MEMRI 9/11 Documentation Project includes MEMRI translations of documents from Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and their affiliates, speeches by and interviews with these organizations' leaders, wills and statements by the 9/11 perpetrators and their colleagues, and jihadi recruitment and indoctrination materials. It also tracks and documents conspiracy theories from across the Arab and Muslim world denying Al-Qaeda's responsibility for the attacks and implicating others in them.
In the past year, MEMRI has added new clips and reports to the project website. These including the following:
- report analyzing Qatar's role in 9/11;
- clip of a Houthi minister claiming the U.S. massacred its own people on 9/11;
- Jordanian article stating that the U.S. planned 9/11 to destabilize the Middle East and benefit Israel;
- video of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri urging mujahideen to target American, Israeli, European, and Russian interests worldwide;
- Jordanian journalist claiming Muslims are the true victims of 9/11;
- Houthi scholar saying Zionist Jews are behind COVID-19, ISIS, and 9/11;
- American Islamic preacher discussing how in the month following 9/11, as many as four people a day converted to Islam at the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia;
- Lebanese nuclear physicist claiming Jews escaped the World Trade Center on 9/11;
- and an Iranian researcher stating that the U.S. does not mind killing its own people, like it did on 9/11.
