September 11 is a notable date in these years:

  • In 1921 NAHALAL (Eretz Israel); the first moshav was established in the Jezreel Valley. [1]
  • In 1922 The British mandate of Palestine begins. British guns killed tens of thousands of Palestinian Arabs, displacing them from their homes and settlements that were then given to Jewish settlers. More than 1,200 villages were totally destroyed by the British in collaboration with Jewish militants. Since that time, more than 3 mm Palestinians have been made homeless, and more than 100,000 have been killed by British, American and Israeli soldiers, to make room for Jewish settlers in contravention of international law, and in violation of no less than 30 directives of the Fourth Geneva Convention. [2]
  • In 1941, on that date, ground was broken on the Pentagon site, laying the ground for sixty years of world domination and Empire.
  • In 1973 Augusto Pinochet, a Chilean general, invaded the Chilean parliament and overthrew the goverment of Salvador Allende. This was a direct initiative of Henry Kissinger, whom Allende had said "didn't have the balls" to perform this coup. In the next four years, 4000 people were killed.
  • In 1974 the government of Ethiopia was overthrown in a bloody coup
  • In 2001 hijacked planes were flown into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center; another hijacked plane was diverted into a field in Pennsylvania. The collapse of the Trade Center's twin towers killed about 3000 people that day, and released asbestos and other toxic waste into the air.
