The Swastika Hidden Behind the Crescent

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, July 24th, 2007

Recently, we were contacted by a reader who wanted to correct what he felt was an error in our article “The Reemerging Swastika.” This reader sent us a document that claimed Youssef Nada was born in 1931 (“Extra Vol. 135, Number 5,” no pagination). If true, this would have made Nada only 14 when he was supposed to have helped the Grand Mufti escape from Germany in 1945. So there is a possibility that Nada does not connect the postwar Nazi International to the radical Islamists. However, we have not entirely abandoned the contention that Nada was a member of Nazi military intelligence just yet. Egyptian intelligence services’ sources have claimed that Nada was working for the Abwehr under Admiral Canaris (Labeviere 140-41). Intelligence sources do not fall into the same category as members of the Tinfoil Hat Club. They deserve a whole lot more credence. So it is still possible that Nada was connected to the Nazi military intelligence.

We certainly do not mind when a reader lends an assist by pointing out an error that slipped through the cracks. However, the whole thrust of the e-mail seemed to be that there is no connection between Nazism and radical Islamists. The evidence of connections between the Nazis and the radical Islamists is voluminous. The marriage between these two beasts came about courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). In 1952, the CIA supported a coup against the ruler of Egypt, King Farouk. Egyptian army General Mohammed Naguib was chosen by the Agency to head the government and Gamal Abdel Nasser became the country’s shadow dictator. The CIA wanted to maintain a U.S. influence in Egypt’s political affairs and turned to three Nazis to accomplish that goal: Reinhard Gehlen, the Nazis’ primary intelligence-gatherer on the Eastern Front, Otto Skorzeny, Hitler’s infamous commando, and Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht, Hitler’s finance minister. Egypt, like other Arab countries, were quick to accept help from the Nazis. According to Gehlen’s memoirs: “We found Arab countries particularly willing to embrace Germans with an ostensibly ‘Nazi’ past.” Skorzeny headed off to Egypt to act as Naguib’s military advisor (Infield 205-06).

Weaponizing the Arts

Featured-Expressionism-CIA

By Paul and Phillip Collins

Popular opinion tends to regard philosophical discourse as the province of academia’s hierophants. There is good reason for this self-imposed intellectual segregation. On the theoretical level, philosophy can be somewhat tedious. Given the field’s justifiable insistence upon the clarity of definitions, philosophy is replete with specialized terminology that typically requires explanation by theoreticians. As a result, few people are eager to engage in discussions concerning the various Weltanschauungs populating the marketplace of ideas. Yet, philosophical outlooks abound and they are held by both neophyte and adept. Thus, the question arises: How are belief systems engendered among pop culture’s novice-level thinkers? According to Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias, most people are not introduced to philosophy through the superstructure of theory. Instead, they are exposed through an infrastructure of the arts, which “has shaped the national mind-set in everything from determining war strategy to electing presidents, to finding one’s identity in cars and deodorants” (Can Man Live Without God? 12).

Such was the case with existentialism, a movement whose logically untenable foundations were camouflaged by cleverly employed artistic mediums. Existentialism presented a dysteleological depiction of the world as the basis for a libertine philosophy of self-definition. A central contention of the outlook was that because the world was supposedly meaningless, man was the ultimate arbiter of meaning and values. Unmoored from a God, purpose and all of its entailments became the province of the subjective conscious. Of this absolute autonomy, Soren Kierkegaard writes:

Two Friendly Queries for Dr John Coleman

Featured-Alleged-Committee-300

By Will Banyan
Copyright © 26 April & 3 May 2008

Author’s note: Two open letters to Dr John Coleman, the allegedly former MI6 agent and originator of the “Committee of 300” conspiracy theory, that were published on the now defunct Martin Frost website in 2008. At issue were two claims made by Dr Coleman to have been the first to have revealed to the public, the existence of the National Reconnaissance Office and the Club of Rome, but in each case the mainstream media had clearly reported on the existence of these bodies first. Nevertheless, Dr Coleman never responded to my queries, nor has he tried to correct his demonstrably false claims.

[26 April 2008]

Dear Dr Coleman

Dr Coleman (incidentally, where did you get your PhD and what was it for?), I write to you as a humble novice in the areas of intelligence, but as you may have noticed I like to get to the bottom of things and don’t believe everything I’m told.

So it is in that spirit that I note that in your speech from 1994, helpfully put on YouTube that you are quick to establish your credentials versus those of others (presumably journalists) who dare to write on matters involving intelligence organizations.  Such people, you state [starting at 7:20], “really have no experience whatsoever” on intelligence matters. As an example of your own experience and reliability on these sensitive issues, you describe your apparent scoop in your book on Mind Control, Metaphysic, Extremely Low Frequency and Weather Modification apparently on July the 8th, 1986:

The Reemerging Swastika

Featured-Grand-Mufti

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, July 16th, 2007

During his January 2003 State of the Union speech, Bush identified “Hitlerism” as a criminal ideology. While his statement was accurate, the President was being insincere. His insincerity was clearly displayed on June 20, 2007 when the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research hosted a meeting with intelligence community representatives to talk about the possibility of forging an official relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood (Lake, no pagination). This was just one of many moves on the part of the Bush administration to open up diplomatic channels with the Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is not just a collection of radical Islamists. They are intimately tied to the post-War Nazi International. This connection can be found through an examination of the Brotherhood’s bank, known as Al Taqwa.

The Al Taqwa bank was formed by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1988 (Hosenball, no pagination). One of the most significant Brotherhood members behind the formation of the Al Taqwa bank is Youssef Nada (no pagination). In his youth, Nada joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “secret apparatus” (Erikson, no pagination). From there, Nada was recruited by German military intelligence (no pagination). In 1945, Nada came to the aid of Grand Mufti el-Husseini (no pagination). El-Husseini’s collaboration with the Nazis went all the way back to 1933, when he sent a telegram to Berlin addressed to the German Consul-General in the British Mandate of Palestine expressing his eagerness to disseminate the Nazi ideology in the Middle East (Dalin, no pagination). With the Nazi defeat imminent, el-Husseini needed help escaping from Germany (Erikson, no pagination). Nada helped arrange el-Husseini’s escape from Germany through Switzerland (no pagination). From there, el-Husseini made it to Egypt and would eventually resurface in Palestine in 1946 (no pagination).

One of the countries where Al Taqwa is based is Switzerland. When the bank required at least one Swiss citizen on its board, Ahmed Huber was brought on board (Komisar, no pagination). Huber is a faithful disciple of deceased Swiss lawyer Francois Genoud (Bushinsky, no pagination). Genoud financed Hitler and served as a Nazi agent during World War II (no pagination). Genoud’s Nazi activities did not end with the close of the war. After the Nazi defeat, Genoud underwrote the clandestine Odessa organization (no pagination). Odessa assisted Nazi fugitives in escaping to the Middle East and South America (no pagination). Klaus Barbie, Alois Brunner, and Adolf Eichmann were all recipients of aid from Odessa (no pagination). Authorities believe that Genoud established Al Tawqa bank (Bushinsky, no pagination).

Compromised at the Top

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, July 9th, 2007

HHow do you conduct an imperialist campaign abroad and erect a police state domestically? You launch a phony war on terrorism to act as the pretext. How do you prevent the phony war on terrorism from becoming a genuine war on terrorism? You make sure you have a thoroughly compromised individual acting as your Commander in chief. On June 20, 2007, the Bush administration made moves demonstrating that the President is just such a compromised individual. The Bureau of Intelligence and Research at the State Department hosted a meeting with other intelligence community representatives to discuss the opening of “more formal channels” to the Muslim Brotherhood (Lake, no pagination). This is just the latest in a series of moves made by the administration to reach out to the Muslim Brotherhood (known in Arabic as Ikhwan) (no pagination). One of the Brotherhood supporters at the June 20 meeting was Robert Leiken (no pagination). Robert Leiken, a scholar at the Nixon Center, was commissioned by the National Intelligence Council to put together a paper on the history of the Muslim Brotherhood earlier in 2007 (no pagination). According to administration officials, Leiken’s paper to the National Intelligence Council drew the attention of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and senior members of the National Security Council (no pagination).

Other acts of bridge building between the administration and the Brotherhood are worth mentioning. On April 7, 2007, Congressional leaders went to a reception where Muslim Brotherhood representatives were present (no pagination). The National Security Council and the State Department had an indirect meeting with the Syrian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2006 through discussions with the National Salvation Front, a new Syrian opposition group (no pagination). Even Iraq’s Vice President, Tariq al-Hashemi, is the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Iraq branch (no pagination). Hashemi was encouraged by George W. Bush to form an alliance that would replace Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government (Slavin, no pagination). This move was supposedly to counter the influence of Muqtada al-Sadr (no pagination).

Business as Usual

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, June 28th, 2007

It is now official: the U.S Justice Department will be looking into BAE Systems to see if the UK defense firm violated any anti-corruption laws (“US to probe BAE over corruption,” no pagination). Of particular interest to the DOJ is BAE’s business relationship with a member of the Saudi Royal family, Prince Bandar bin Sultan (Sullivan, no pagination). Beginning in 1985, Prince Bandar brokered a series of arms deals totaling $80 billion between Britain and Saudi Arabia (no pagination). This series of arms deals came to be known as the Al-Yamamah (which is, ironically, Arabic for dove) (no pagination). Two billion dollars of that money ended up lining Bandar’s own pockets (no pagination). Suspicions surrounding the deal led to an investigation conducted by the Serious Fraud Office that might have turned up evidence of slush funds and bribes (no pagination). However, in December of 2006, the British Government dropped the investigation with Tony Blair claiming it would jeopardize the strategic relationship between Britain and Saudi Arabia (no pagination).

But the fraud investigation may have turned up a whole lot more about Prince Bandar. Is Prince Bandar merely a greedy Royal in search of profit and monetary gain? Evidence suggests an even darker side to the Saudi Prince beyond bribery and fraud. The darker side involves the financing of terrorists. In the case of Prince Bandar, the terrorists in question are none other than the infamous 9/11 hijackers. Of course, the 9/11 attacks are considered to be watershed moments in history not just for America, but for the whole world as well. It was an event that opened the door for US imperialism abroad and police state measures at home, all in the name of fighting terrorism. Therefore, it is hard for some to imagine that Prince Bandar, an individual who presents himself as pro-America to the public, would be involved in such a heinous act. However, before dismissing the claim, please consider Prince Bandar’s ties to the mysterious Saudi named Omar al-Bayoumi.

Foxes Guarding the Henhouse

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, June 25th, 2007

Gaetano SayaDo you still think that the governments of the world are conducting a sincere “war on terror”? If so, please consider the 2005 investigation of 200 Italian police who were running a “parallel anti-terror force” (Philips, no pagination). Using the 2004 Madrid bombing as a pretext, Gaetano Saya and Riccardo Sindoca set up the Department for Anti-terrorist Strategic Studies (DSSA) (“Italy probes ‘parallel police,'” no pagination). According to those involved in the investigation of the DSSA, the group used official police badges and official police equipment while carrying out very unofficial investigations (no pagination). The group was also believed to have been using Interior Ministry’s database in its own operations (no pagination). The worst accusation concerning the DSSA came from phone intercepts obtained by investigators (Philips, no pagination). According to these wiretaps, DSSA members were planning to kidnap Red Brigades activist Cesare Battisti (no pagination). One magistrate commented on this revelation: “We were seeing the genesis of something similar to the death squads in Argentina” (no pagination).

Probably the most disturbing revelation to come out of the investigation of the DSSA was the fact that Gaetano Saya and Riccardo Sindoca were identified as former members of Gladio (“Italy probes ‘parallel police’,” no pagination). What was Gladio? Gladio was a clandestine paramilitary network that came into existence in the 1950s (Vulliamy, no pagination). It was part of a much larger network of guerrilla fighters known as “Stay Behind” (“Gelli arrest is another chapter in sordid Vatican Bank scandal,” no pagination). The network had been proposed by CIA director Allen Dulles and fell under the authority of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) (no pagination). This network included a very sordid cast of characters, many of which were Nazis. Christopher Lee provides an example:

Alien Smokescreen

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, June 17th, 2007

An interesting addition is being made to Area 51. A new hangar that is almost twice the size of Hangar 18 is being constructed at the top secret testing facility for experimental aircraft (“Large New Hangar at Area 51,” no pagination). The construction is located SE of the South Ramp and is an estimated size of 200×500 feet and roughly 100 feet tall (no pagination). Although the sides of the structure are unfinished, a huge hangar door is visible from the side facing the flight line (no pagination). Evidently, Area 51 is expanding its business. But, just what is the base’s business? Of course, theories abound. Even more abundant are myths.

When investigating Area 51, one must wade through a sea of disinformation, rumors, and legends. Perhaps the most popular claim regarding Area 51 is that the installation houses an extraterrestrial biological entity and “reverse engineered” alien technology. The 1997 documentary film Area 51: The Alien Interview helped to invigorate this belief. This film featured footage of an alleged alien inside a glass “bio-containment area” (“Area 51: The Alien Interview,” Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia, no pagination). The video runs for approximately two minutes and 55 seconds with no audio (no pagination). It concludes with the alien convulsing violently and being aided by two heavily outfitted medics (no pagination).

Although the video seemed to satisfy UFO researchers like Michael Hesemann and Robert Dean, it did raise suspicions with Hollywood special effects wizard John Criswell and image analyst Jim Dilettso (no pagination). However, what is most suspicious is the source of the footage, a man identifying himself only as “Victor.” Victor claimed that the ultimate motive was to inform the public about the “truth” regarding UFOs (no pagination). Yet, simultaneously, he insisted on being paid for the rights to air the video, contending that he needed “some small measure of monetary freedom” to counter the potential consequences of his revelations concerning UFO secrecy (no pagination).

Why the Ghost of A.Q. Khan Still Walks the Earth

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, June 13th, 2007

On February 11, 2004, President George W. Bush told the world that it could sleep easy. According to the President, the nuclear black-market network of Abdul Qadeer Khan had been dismantled and the threat of nuclear proliferation had been brought to and end (Isenberg, no pagination). The Bush administration gave itself a pat on the back and Bush apologists gushed with praise. However, new developments have caused the cheerleaders to go silent. A study released by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) shows that the Khan network is anything but dead and gone. Entitled Nuclear Black Markets: Pakistan, A Q Khan and the Rise of Proliferation Networks, the report states the following:

some of Khan’s associates appear to have escaped law-enforcement attention and could, after a period of lying low, resume their black-market business. Decapitating the nodes of non-hierarchical networks does not necessarily eradicate the enterprise. (No pagination)

The Ruling Class-Sponsored Race War Part Three

Diener Consultants, the CNP, and the Implosion of the Minutemen

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins ©, June 10th, 2007

MCDCBack in 2005, these researchers warned that an elite-controlled racist fifth column within the Minutemen was destroying the immigration reform movement. Now, two years later, that prediction has come to pass with frightening accuracy. In the May 23, 2007 Sierra Vista Herald, Jonathan Clark reported two state-level officers in the Minutemen Civil Defense Corp. (MCDC) were dismissed for questioning Minutemen President Chris Simcox (no pagination). Eighteen state MCDC leaders put together a memo on May 8 addressed to Simcox, Vice President Carmen Mercer, and Executive Director Al Garza to attend a meeting in Phoenix to answer questions concerning the MCDC’s donors (no pagination). On May 14, Simcox responded with a memo threatening the 18 state-level leaders with the termination of their MCDC membership if they attended the meeting (no pagination). Twelve to thirteen state leaders went ahead with the meeting and issued a vote of no confidence against Simcox (no pagination). The Sierra Vista Herald reported that two leaders, Oklahoma Chapter leader Greg Thompson and New Mexico state director Bob Wright had their membership terminated (no pagination).
