Daniel Libeskind and Michael Arad Score FU Punch with Ground Zero Rebuilding



Call me a chauvinist, but I am ridiculously proud that Daniel Libeskind and Michael Arad are delivering a two-Jew FU punch to the haters by being central to the rebuilding of Ground Zero. Here are a couple of good articles about each of them, in case you haven't already acquainted yourself with their stories:

How the 9/11 Memorial Changed its Architect, Michael Arad

9/11 Memorial design by Israeli architect, Michael Arad

All you have to do is read this summary of the 9/11 Jewish conspiracy theories that persist ten years later and you can understand my chauvinism:

"The conspiracy theories began almost as soon as the towers fell. Four days after the attack, the Syrian newspaper Al-Thawra reported that 4,000 Jews failed to show up for work at the World Trade Center on 9/11 after being warned by Israeli intelligence, according to a 2007 U.S. State Department document debunking the myth. Another held that five Israeli students were secret Mossad agents who knew about the attacks and allowed them to happen. That myth eventually morphed into the conspiracy theory that the Israelis remotely directed the attacks.
"Other myths have followed, spreading around the world and taking root even in the United States. Of 36,000 conspiracy videos recently found on the Internet, 16,000 implicated Jews or Israelis, according to a new report by the Anti-Defamation League titled “Decade of Deceit: Anti-Semitic 9/11 Conspiracy Theories 10 Years Later.”" 

A great example is this little nugget I got off of one of the many Truther sites trolling the internet:

“So the memorialsteins should get the job? for why? Is this to be made into a jewish tragedy when it was jewish paydirt? Really they are not "getting" the jobs. That would entail some type of request. They had the jobs from before the event. Must be so.”

  1. Libeskind was fired from the Freedom Tower project. He is not designing any of the new buildi ngsat Ground Zero. He has never got a commission in New york. he had to pay another architect to design his own apartment. He is not only an embarrassment to the design profession, but an embarrassment to all Jewish people. but feel free to feel proud of this nincompoop as you wish.

  2. libeskind design the master plan, but not the building, its not easy to build all the building, but its too great to be an architect that won the project master plan. once he design the master plan. the building will follow the master plan as he designed. Libeskind is one of the great architects.
