An omniscient God would've known the attacks were coming. 

A beneficent God would've wanted to prevent the attacks. 

An omnipotent God could've stopped the attacks with ease. 

If these things are not true of God, then He is not worthy of worship. 

So either God doesn't exist or He simply hates America.

Why did God allow the 9/11 attacks to occur?

Considering the number of brown people that have had to die as a direct consequence of the 9/11 attacks, I think it safer to say that God hates brown people of all nationalities, particularly middle eastern and central asian ones.

The 9/11 attacks were just a means to an end.

I don't know how many people will buy this, but...

The week before the 9/11 attack, President Bush advised Israel to give up the Gaza strip. Israel did because they couldn't ckntrill it without America's help. Since Israel is God's chosen country, he allowed the 9/11 attack as a punishment for abandoning Israel and the Gaza strip.

I don't know how many of you guys will believe me, but it is true. God is Israel's greatest ally.

This arguement ignores the human role in the equation, not just as attackers or victims but as future actors. While God could have forseen and prevented the attacks, there are a variety of reasons one would want another to endeaur hardship, including gaining wisdom and understanding.

While I despise the post 9-11 mindset and think that our hysterics were childish and stupid, I think learning from them are equally important and will serve as an example of what not to do in times of crisis for decades if not centuries to come. Further, it could be that one or more of the people killed in the 911 attacks needed to die to prevent a worse future action, so while 911 may seem horrific, the price paid might ensure a better future.

If Israel is God's Chosen country, why did He choose such a sh*thole?

More than half of it is desert, it has little in the way of fertile land or natural resources and suffers from sandstorms, droughts and flash floods.
