A New Jersey teacher was removed from the classroom Wednesday afternoon after officials found 9/11 conspiracy links on his section of the school website.
WPIX found a handful of dead links alongside quotes from George Washington posted on teacher Jason Ali’s section of the Woodbridge High School website under “supplemental materials.”
The links, when cut and pasted into a browser, would take users to a page for “The Middle East Research Institute.”
The website contains anti-Semitic headlines and articles such as the main headline on the website from the Saudi Daily that says, “U.S. Planned, Carried Out 9/11 Attacks.”
“It’s upsetting … that somebody would do this. It’s upsetting that somebody would, especially a teacher, would distribute this message,” Dr. Robert Zega, superintendent of Woodbridge, New Jersey, Public Schools, said to WPIX. “It is is absolutely not something that the district agrees with in any way.”
Ali also had a link to an article entitled “U.S Planning 9/11-Style Attack Using ISIS in Early 2015 — Like It Did Using Al-Queda [sic] in 2001.”
“We took swift action and the links are coming down as we speak and if … if … the investigation proves out then the teacher will be disciplined severely,” Dr. Zega said.
Dr. Zega told WPIX that Ali would not be teaching on Thursday.
