Mysterious No. 11 continues to hound the world, mankind
By BEN CAL
By sheer coincidence, the deadly terrorist train bombings in Madrid,
Spain last March 11 occurred exactly 911 days after Muslim extremists
attacked New York City and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001 known the
world over as the 9-11 tragedy.
Number 11 has indeed been hounding humanity since the infamous 9-11
attacks nearly three years ago.
Consider this: The date of the attack was September 11 or 9 + 1 + 1 =
11, and to think that September 11 has 9 letters and 2 numbers:
9+2=11, and the number 911 is the telephone number for emergencies in
the United States!
Likewise, September 11 is the 254th day of the year and to add the
numbers 2, 5, 4 the total sum is 11. And after September 11 there are
111 days left until the end of the year.
Terrorists used an unconventional method in attacking New York and
Washington by hijacking commercial jetliners and slamming them on
Apple City's twin towers which looked like No. 11.
There's more to it on the bizarre No. 11. The terrorists hijacked the
first plane with Flight AA11 and the targets were the double 11, twin
Four of the hijackers on board flight AA11 have the initials A. A.
which when translated to number is 11.
The Website Yahoo also confirmed that the fifth AA11 hijacker was the
pilot named Mohamed Atta whose name has 11 letters. The plane was
carrying 92 persons. When added, 9 plus 2 equals 11. The ill-fated
plane had 11 crew members - 2 pilots and 9 flight attendants.
New York was the 11th State added to the Union and the name Trade
Center has 11 letters. The word "skyscrapers" also has 11 letters.
The first tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m. that fateful day of September
11, 2001. When added 1+0+2+8=11. The first fire truck to arrive at the
scene was firetruck, No. 11. The firetruck lost 11 firemen combating
the blaze and the World Trade Center collapsed to a height of 11
It is on record that the twin towers continued burning for 99 days
before it was extinguished and multiplying 9 by 11 equals 99.
Topping it all, New York officials announced that the death toll from
the World Trade Center attacks was 2,801 which when added together,
the total is 11.
On the other hand, the plane that hit the Pentagon was United Airlines
Flight 77 with 65 people on board. Again, 6 + 5 is 11.
The prime suspect in the 9-11 attacks was Osama bin Laden whose
birthplace is Saudi Arabia, again with 11 letters.
The first man who orchestrated the attack on WTC in 1993 was Ramzi
Yousef whose also has 11 letters.
Number 11 is indeed significant. Consider these significant historical
events: World War I ended on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the
11th month. The first man to land on the moon was aboard Apollo 11.
Ancient superstitious beliefs say Number 11 has been associated with
mystery and power for thousands of years.
It has remained a puzzle to mankind. (PNA)
