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).
