The report contended that Mossad agents were spying on Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehi, two of leaders of the 9/11 hijack teams.
This makes it clear that there was no suggestion whatsoever from within American intelligence that the Israelis were colluding with the 9/11 hijackers – simply that the possibility remains that they knew the attacks were going to happen, but effectively did nothing to help stop them.
Certainly, it seems, Israel was spying within the borders of the United States and it is equally certain that the targets were Islamic extremists probably linked to September 11. But did Israel know in advance that the Twin Towers would be hit and the world plunged into a war without end; a war which would give Israel the power to strike its enemies almost without limit? That’s a conspiracy theory too far, perhaps.

Why would Israel be involved? The United States supports them?

Make up your own mind.
After the attacks on New York and Washington, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was asked what the terrorist strikes would mean for US-Israeli relations. He said: “It’s very good.” Then he corrected himself, adding: “Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy [for Israel from Americans].”
Maria grabbed a pair of binoculars and, like millions across the world, she watched the horror of the day unfold.
As she gazed at the burning towers, she noticed a group of men kneeling on the roof of a white van in her parking lot. Here’s her recollection: “They seemed to be taking a movie. They were like happy, you know ... they didn’t look shocked to me. I thought it was strange.”
The driver of the van then told the arresting officers: “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”
“They are good boys. They are so innocent. My son was in shock [after his arrest]. He said, ‘Mommy, I can’t believe it. We are Israeli and live with terror every day. How could anybody believe that Israelis could do anything like this?’ ”
Kayea said that on the morning of the World Trade Center attack, each of the men called their parents in Israel to assure them they were well and were working in New Jersey at the time. When the family learned that they were arrested in the “belief they were Arabs, we were shocked,” she said.
“My brothers are tall with blue eyes and brown hair. They look like Europeans,” Kayea said.
She said Sivan, who had the camera, had planned to fly to India on Sept. 14 to meet friends there.

I've said this before and I'll say it again.
Taliban wanted revenged against US for back-stabbing them. With the help of their newly harbored Ben Ladden, they set to hurt the US. They devised the plan, which took years to do. As the story goes, Ladden made a deal with Saudi to free his money, in return al queda would stop terrorizing Saudi. This whole time the Massad knew what was going on. They had infiltrtated and learned of the elaberate plan. So instead of telling the US government (which some think they did and the US let it happen too) they prepared for it. (anyone remember the Silvertein israeli businessman who purchased the lease on the Twin Towers six weeks before the strike? 7 Billion dollar profit! The rest has already been said...
