Irving David Irving replies:

Glad to respond. Answer: Five -- three Israelis in the buildings, two on the planes... Source: the main Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz. On this Ha'aretz web page, they post thumbnail bios of the five (count 'em --- five) Israeli victims of 9/11. They include:

  • 2 people on the ill-fated flights (1 woman, 1 man -- the Mossad agent Daniel Levin, shot by a hijacker sitting behind him on AA11)
  • 1 deaf, 51-year-old London-born janitor who was working at the WTC that day
  • 1 29-year-old man who was also at work (at Cantor Fitzgerald)
  • 1 34-year-old man who happened to be at the WTC for a meeting

Perhaps you remember President George W Bush's lying speech to a joint session of the Congress on Sept. 20, 2001 [full text], when he enumerated the people of many nationalities who were killed that day. Right up fron, he made a point of mentioning Israel's dead, "...more than 130 Israelis." If the word went around to skip work that day -- and there is only the most tenuous evidence that it did -- the poor deaf janitor did not hear it.
