The Last Wake Up Call

Featured-Litvinenko-FSB

by Paul Collins & Phillip Collins ©, Dec. 9th, 2006

B.F. Skinner, Time Magazine Sep. 20, 1971When former FSB lieutenant Alexander Litvinenko died from deliberate radiation poisoning on November 23, 2006, it came as little surprise that many accusatory fingers were pointing at the Kremlin. Litvinenko’s revelations concerning the FSB and Putin had earned him many enemies amongst the Russian elites. Deputy Chairman of the Russian parliament’s security committee, Viktor Ilyukhin, probably hit the nail on the head when he stated:

“That former KGB officer [Litvinenko] had been irritating the Russian authorities for a long time and possibly knew some state secrets. So when our special services got the chance to operate not only inside but outside the country, they decided to get rid of him.” (No pagination)

It comes as little surprise that Litvinenko’s allegations would create so much “irritation” for the Russian authorities. They suggest that the “fall of communism” was one of the greatest deceptions of the last century. All of the Russian “liberalization” initiatives seem to have been mere cosmetic alterations with no sincerity behind them at all. This move has been quite effective. It has caused the Western elite (which are just as criminal and conspiratorial as the Russian elite) to believe that Russia had ceased to be a major competitor in the crusade to establish a New World Order. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Russian elite continued building a dictatorial system. That system has eschewed the hammer and sickle, but has embodied all of the principles of those symbols. Litvinenko’s friend, Alex Goldfarb, seemed to be implying just such a contention while on Anderson Cooper 360 Degrees. Goldfarb stated:

And it is very important that the west recognizes before it is too late. This country is drifting into a kind of a police state which will become a threat to the world. And if we fail to recognize it now, it will be to our own peril. And this is probably one of the last wake-up calls. (No pagination)

If Litvinenko’s words are, as Goldfarb suggested, the last wake-up call, then the words of KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn can be considered one of the first.

The Scam Predicted

Golitsyn was a high level KGB agent who defected to the United States in 1961. He brought with him several startling prognostications concerning a counterfeit liberalization campaign in the Soviet Union, which he contended would lead to a hoaxed “fall of communism.” This feigned decline in Soviet power was designed to lure the Western elite into a trap. Believing the liberalization campaigns to be genuine, the Establishment would pledge logistical and financial support to the emergent republics of the former Soviet Union. Meanwhile, the communist elite would use this Western assistance to restore their waning power.

In Bed With the Enemy

by Paul David Collins ©, Sept. 28th, 2006

Huey Long once asserted that fascism would first appear in America as anti-fascism. Whether you consider the man to have been a hero or a tyrant, Long hit the nail on the head with this assertion. President George W. Bush recently characterized Arab terrorists as fascists. During a press conference held at his Texas ranch, Bush stated that the terrorists “try to spread their jihadist message – a message I call … Islamic radicalism, Islamic fascism” (Greene, no pagination). The President’s contention concerning Arab terrorists is, for the most part, correct. There is little difference between a radical Islamic fundamentalist and a goose-stepping Nazi. However, when one examines the American political landscape more closely, the tremendous hypocrisy of Bush’s statement becomes apparent. While denouncing Islamofascism in the public spotlight, criminal factions in the government are actually connected to the terrorists behind the scenes. Islamofascism is not merely the refuge of fanatics; it is a well-oiled, highly intricate, government-sponsored enterprise.

A key character connecting the government to the terrorist network is Grover Norquist. Norquist is a GOP/Bush operative who helped the President gain the support of Islamic people and organizations here in the United States. The Nation magazine referred to Norquist as “‘Field Marshal of the Bush Plan” (Gitell, no pagination). However, Norquist can be characterized as much more than just a Bush supporter. Grover Norquist is best described as the tie between the Administration and Islamists. Seth Gitell elaborates:

The Protestant Norquist is a founding director of the Islamic Institute, a socially conservative Muslim think tank that eschews international issues in favor of domestic issues such as tax cuts and faith-based initiatives. In addition, Norquist’s lobbying firm, Janus-Merritt Strategies LLC, was officially registered as a lobbyist for the Islamic Institute as well as for Abdurahman Alamoudi, the founder and former executive director of the American Muslim Council. Public records show that Alamoudi has done more than $20,000 worth of business with Norquist’s firm, on issues relating to Malaysia. (No pagination)

The Hidden Face of Terrorism

Featured-Hidden-Face-Terrorism

by Paul David Collins ©, 2002

The following is an edited extract from The Hidden Face of Terrorism: The Dark Side of Social Engineering, From Antiquity to September 11, by Paul David Collins.

In our modern world, discomforting truths are usually discarded in favour of fictions. One such fiction is the idea that terrorists are disenfranchised dissidents who independently generate the wealth and resources necessary for their heinous acts. Such is the contention of Professor Mark Juergensmeyer. In his article, “Understanding the New Terrorism”, he says that modern terrorism “appears pointless since it does not lead directly to any strategic goal” (p. 158).

Juergensmeyer arrives at this conclusion because he restricts his examination to the visible perpetrators, whose motives may be, in fact, irrational. However, he does not examine the patrons of terrorism. Given the exceptional subtlety and discretion of terrorism’s shadowy sponsors, Professor Juergensmeyer may just be oblivious to their existence. On the other hand, he could simply be parroting his fellow academicians in order to maintain the status quo.

Whatever the case may be, this contention seems to be the overall view held by the orthodoxy of academia. With such a view vigorously promulgated by the arbiters of the dominant national paradigm, few can recognise those shady individuals who stand to profit from terrorist acts.

To understand terrorism, one must discard the view that arbitrarily characterises it as “a resort to violence or a threat of violence on the part of a group seeking to accomplish a purpose against the opposition of constituted authority” (Adler, Mueller & Laufer, p. 309). Such an impotent notion is predicated upon the hopelessly flawed accidentalist perspective of history. It relegates terrorism, which is the product of conscious effort and design, to the realm of circumstantial spontaneity. In other words, a contrived act suddenly becomes an inexplicable social phenomenon.
