But above all Enver is Delhi Stephanian of the 1957-1960 era.
May I suggest that all Stephanians take their friends to listen to this very important lecture.

Fatally Flawed: The 9/11 Commission Report
Evidence of the use of pre-positioned explosives to accomplish the collapse of 1, 2, and 7 World Trade Center
by Enver Masud
"Fatally Flawed: The 9/11 Commission Report" -- a talk scheduled for November 1 at the NRECA Conference Center in Arlington, Virginia, including the 90 min film by independent researchers on the destruction of the World Trade Center
If approached with an open mind, this presentation will lead you to the conclusion that we were not told the truth about September 11, 2001 -- the stated casus belli for the war on Afghanistan, and repeatedly linked
to the war on Iraq by President Bush, and Vice President Cheney.
Indeed there is prima facie evidence of the use of pre-positioned explosives to accomplish the collapse of 1, 2, and 7 World Trade Center. The prime example is 7 World Trade Center. Its collapse exhibits all of the characteristics of a controlled demolition.
The Iraq war alone is expected to cost the U.S. between one and two trillion dollars according to Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz. A study directed by Johns Hopkins estimates over 650,000 Iraqis have died as a result, and 1.6 million have fled the country. Add to this the cost in American lives, the destruction of Iraq's society, institutions and infrastructure, and millions more maimed and wounded. In the words of veteran journalist Robert Fisk, "We have turned Iraq into the most hellish place on Earth."
It is now incumbent upon all Americans of conscience, specially leaders of faith-based organizations, to speak out and demand the truth -- begin with 7 World Trade Center which collapsed in about 7 seconds. The 9/11 Commission Report does not even mention this, and the National Institutes of Science and Techonology has yet to produce its report.
Muslim leaders, in particular, have a special duty because most of this death and destruction has been inflicted upon the Muslim world, and Muslims everywhere are the target of a new cold war with Islam -- of which my former colleague at Eastern Times, Mowahid H. Shah, wrote in the Christian Science Monitor, July 30, 1990.
And now that it is clear that the Bush administration manipulated the intelligence on Iraq there is the matter of compensation for the victims of U.S. aggression -- the "Supreme International Crime" in the words of former Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, chief U.S. prosecutor at the first Nuremberg trial. The United Nations Compensation Commission approved $52.5 billion in claims against Iraq for its invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
