Maybe they failed to get the warnings that were distributed by the Odigo Hebrew language messaging service, via text messages that were allegedly sent out, or from the pulpit of NY synagogues the Friday before!
So if we take the official toll of around 3,000 dead and divide by the four hundred dead Jews, we arrive at a figure of around one in twelve, while the Jew population of New York is usually stated to be twelve and a half percent or around one in eight.
Add the unknown number of Jews with non Jewish names who perished to the list, to bring the number to parity .. However the official death toll of some under 3,000 dead is a gross underestimation!
Ok now we re compute the figures using the upper estimate above, which is by no means the highest figure since Peter Jennings, in consultation with NY Port Authority persons on late afternoon of the same day, made an estimate of around eighty thousand dead!
So divide the four hundred into fifty thousand, and we find that only one in 125 were Jews, whereas using the same total Jewish population of NY as twelve and a half percent, there should have been around four thousand dead Jews!
Using Peter Jennings upper estimate of eighty thousand dead, and using the official number of four hundred dead Jews, only one in two hundred was a Jew, and there should have been an incredible 6400 dead Jews .. So quite obviously the official death toll of some under 3,000, was tailored to fit the number of Jew dead!
