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).

The Reemerging Swastika

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).

New primary info and good reviews all around: Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America. Looking through the search, I was happy see Jacobsen give Linda Hunt her due for uncovering much of it in the first place.
