Did Al Franken Get Jew Call Warning Of 9/11 Attacks?!

Did US Senator Al Franken get a Jew call, warning of the 9/11 attacks before they happened?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : A Jew Call Warned Al Franken About 9/11 Attacks!

Conspiracy theorists keep claiming that former US Senator Al Franken received advance warning of the 9/11 attacks through “Jew call”.

Apparently, Al Franken himself claimed that a “Jew call” helped him escape getting killed when the Twin Towers collapsed, or was “demolished” by the Zionists.

The evidence, they claimed, was clearly stated in his 2003 book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them:

One of the widely disseminated stories was that no Jews died in the collapse of the Trade Towers because they had received calls telling them not to go to work that day.

To tell you the truth, I got the Jew call. I had an office in the Trade Center where I used to do most of my writing. The call came from former New York mayor Ed Koch.

“Al,” he told me, “don’t go to work on the twenty-third day of Elul [September 11, 2001].

Truth : A Jew Call Did Not Warn Al Franken About 9/11 Attacks!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS surrounding the September 11 attacks, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : His Book Was Political Satire

What people may not know is that the book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, was political satire.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them was a satirical piece on American politics, targeting Republicans and conservative personalities and media. Its subtitle “A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right” was actually a parody of the Fox News tagline – “Fair and Balanced“.

Fact #2 : Al Franken Writes A Lot Of Satire

Al Franken was not just a US Senator, he is also an American comedian, actor and writer. In fact, he was a regular writer and performer on Saturday Night Live in the 70s and 80s!

Before Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, he wrote a number of satirical books, like:

After Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, he wrote The Truth (With Jokes) and Al Franken, Giant of the Senate – more political satire books. As you can probably tell by now, Al Franken likes to write political satire…

Fact #3 : Al Franken Was Satirising Jew Call Claims

Conspiracy theorists keep insisting that it was not clear that what Al Franken wrote was just satire. They keep telling everyone to “read between the lines“.

The truth is – anyone who even reads the book can clearly see that Al Franken never actually said he got a Jew call that gave him advance warning of the 9/11 attacks.

The conspiracy theorists merely cherry picked the part they wanted, and “conveniently” removed the rest. Take a look:

One of the widely disseminated stories was that no Jews died in the collapse of the Trade Towers because they had received calls telling them not to go to work that day.

To tell you the truth, I got the Jew call. I had an office in the Trade Center where I used to do most of my writing. The call came from former New York mayor Ed Koch.

“Al,” he told me, “don’t go to work on the twenty-third day of Elul [September 11, 2001].

Actually, I watched the events of that awful day from Minneapolis, where I was visiting my mom. Mom’s in a nursing home, so I was staying at a hotel.

That morning, as I grabbed some coffee, I noticed people huddled around the TV. A plane had hit the World Trade Center. Must have been a commuter plane. Maybe the pilot had a heart attack or something.

Then the second plane hit. It was sickening. Then came the Pentagon. We were under attack.

Somehow, I got through to my wife in Manhattan. She was fine at home on the Upper West Side about 5 miles north of the (World) Trade Center. My son was at school on the Upper East Side, my daughter away at college.

As I watched the first Tower collapse, I was stunned. But I still couldn’t register the magnitude of what was happening, even as the second one went down.

I spent the rest of the day at the nursing home watching TV with my mom.

As you can see, Al Franken was not even in New York at that time. He certainly did not receive any “Jew call”.

In fact, he was satirising the conspiracy theory that Jews did not die in the 9/11 attacks because they received a “Jew call” – an alert not to go to the Twin Towers.

Did these conspiracy theorists and bloggers lie about what Al Franken said in his book? Or were they blind to what he wrote?

Fact #4 : Many Jews Died In 9/11 Attacks

Conspiracy theorists claim that no Jew died in the 9/11 attacks because they received the “Jew call” to avoid the Twin Towers on the 23rd of Elul (September 11, 2001).

However, at least 400 victims of the 9/11 attacks were either “confirmed or strongly believed to be Jewish“, according to The New York Times.

On the other hand, only 28 Muslims died in the Twin Towers, and another 3 Muslims were passengers on the two planes. If there was a conspiracy, you would expect the Zionists to do a much better job of protecting their kind, no?

Fact #5 : Al Franken Did Not Have Any WTC Office

Finally, I should point out that Al Franken did NOT have an office in any of the World Trade Center buildings.

So even if there was a Zionist conspiracy to demolish the Twin Towers and blame it on “the innocent Muslims”, there was no need for anyone to give him a “Jew call”.

He wouldn’t have gone to the World Trade Center on that September 11, 2001, or any other day for the matter, because he never had an office there!
