ITG -3-3-p. 110, last paragraph: seven of the next eight verses were lost during the attempted preservation of the scroll now known as 11 QPS. Orchestrated by the RCC and by Muslims, these anti-Semitic religious scholars were more interested in their own self-aggrandizement thanthey were in revealing the truth."

Are you saying they were destroyed purposefully?

AND p. 114, last paragraph, similarly: Since we KNOW that 2/3's or more of these passages have been altered y the Masoretes, and since we don't have a copy of this passage in the Qumran collection...

Then, how do we KNOW the Masoretes altered the text? Why are they presumed guilty?

I am unaware of the first one and can not comment on that.

We know that the Masoretes altered the text because we can compare their text to the DSS and see that it was changed. In addition they altered it through their vowel pointing which limits the meaning of a word to what they choose to point it to mean.
Don't take my word for it, Look it up.
