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

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).
