I am reading a book right now entitled A Mosque in Munich by Ian Johnson, and have to say, I was stunned - and yet, not surprised at all - when I read the following passage:

"In 1956, Gerhard Von Mende received a memo from Theodor Oberlaender, head of the West German refugee ministry, outlining an important national goal, one that required help from an unlikely source: Munich's Muslims. West Germany was home to thousands of emigres, Oberlaender wrote, but many had been recruited by foreign intelligence groups such as Amcomlib. This could not be allowed  to continue, he said, because West Germany needed these same Muslims. One day soon Communism would fall, and they would return home to be future leaders of their home lands. There, they would help achieve West Germany's supreme foreign policy goal: reunification with East Germany and the recovery of vast stretches of German land lost to Poland and the Soviet Union after the war." (Ian Johnson, A Mosque in Munich, p. 91, emphasis added).

This literally leaped off the page at me to such a degree that I literally trembled when I read it, and had to close the book and set it down. Amcomlib was the CIA front organization that ran Radio Free Europe, and Radio Liberty, beaming radio broadcasts into Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union respectively. Both were primary propaganda tools during the Cold War. So note carefully the first point: West Germany was concerned to wrest control over the emigre Muslims away from Amcomlib, for whom many of them worked, and return them to German control.

I say "return them to German control" because many of these people had fought with the Wehrmacht in specially organized Muslim units. The units were deployed on the Eastern Front, and were part of a German effort to employ the sizaeble Muslim minorities in Stalin's Russia in an attempt to weaken and eventually crack the Soviet Union apart. Leading this effort was the Nazi Muslim scholar, Gerhardt von Mende, a principal player in the Nazi "Ostministerium," the branch of government running these efforts.

What interests me, and it should interest you, is the fact I detailed in The Nazi International, namely, that the Nazi contact with radical Islam began before the war and continued through it, and that there was a considerable hand of Nazi influence in the organization of the "international terrorists' summit" in Nationalist Spain that occurred three decades after the war, a summit "chaired" by Hitler's "favorite commando," SS colonel Otto Skorzeny, whom, you'll recall, was married to the daughter of Hitler's Reichsbank president, Hjalmar Schacht, who in turn ended up working for Aristotle Onassis (another player in this sordid story, but, alas, that's an altogether different story). Skorzeny, and other SS officers and former Wehrmacht officers were in turn part of the West German contingent sent to Egypt in the aftermath of Nasser's coup against King Farouk, ostensibly under the auspices of the CIA. There, ties between Nazism and radical elements of Islam, represented by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Al Husseini and his cousin, Yassir Arafat, were cemented.

And what do we have at the end of this process? Why, we have a reunified Germany (which, it will be recalled, had considerable "help" from "extreme right wing elements" in the former East Germany that were clearly being coordinated from Chancellor Kohl's government in Bonn), and we have of course the crackup of the former Soviet Union and the establishment of several Muslim states in central Asia, and ongoing problems between Russian and Muslim elements in Chechnya.

It does make one wonder... what dots need to be connected between 1956 and A Mosque in Munich, and modern events. Whatever dots there may be hidden away in the classified files of the CIA and, for that matter, the German Federal Archives, my bet is, they're not good....

    Thank you.
    Are you familiar with Nassim Haramein’s work? The link is here

    I am sure you are – his work is ground-breaking, like your own. While watching his DVD series “the Event Horizon”, I was struck by his reference to the Giza Pyramid and how the stated dimensions of The Ark of the Covenant were such that they fitted exactly into the “sarcophagus” – I wonder if you have any comment and whether you are familiar with Nassim”s work.
    I saw him recently and his new material suggests that the weak and strong force are invalid and unnecessary.
    Many thanks,

      Yes I am familiar with his work but only vaguely. I was aware of the dimensions of the ark and the sarcophogus.

    My bet is that this is setting the stage for the events that REALLY took place on September 11, 2001. When will somebody write that book?

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 8, 2011 at 4:00 am

      I have been tempted to write a 9/11 book but there is lots of background that needs to be laid first

      • Wolf on May 2, 2011 at 2:02 am

        Dr. Farrell,
        I think it is will be a great idea to offer a new book on 9/11, especially after the midnight news of BaracK Obama. So, Osama Bin Laden is dead, long live Osama! It is not funny, taking into account how long all the military machine of the US has been working on it – the killing of terrorist N1. Or may be not? I suspect that all this play has been long prepared news for usage in a sublime moment like today’s events – a new war with Libya, and so-called democratic revolution of the Arabic countries. But if so what we could expect? What they have prepared to us? It was so obvious that the “great” terrorist’s enemies from Arabic world become an old news. Especially with the “diligent” silence of Al Qaida during the riots in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and the others. And take into account, the all of the so-called “dictators” of this country were clear enemies of the terrorist’s network, especially Moammar Gadhafi and his family. Well, the big question now is what they have prepared to us next? Something big is going on, but what? Is it a big possibility, this new event to be the long expecting work between Israel and Iran? Because so for, the things with Syria do not work well for the Obama’s administration , but more importantly, Iran is showing nuclear muscles, bordering the most sensitive aria of Caspian see. So, what do you think – what is next?

        Joseph, as I listened to the Pres. say the words “they killed Osama” etc. I was listening to your 4th Session with GeorgeAnn on The Philosopher’s Stone (at that very moment) and it hit me exactly – the magic, the blood sacrifice, the sorcerer, the objective to “control”. It made so MUCH MORE SENSE to me. I realized you have given us the “sorcerer’s own formula” debased (?) or in English, or words fail… to understand the attempt to create the something out of nothing. This is especially true after hearing that session. Witness what the MSM said were the “flash crowds” gathered at the WH to cheer (over the sacrifice). Because I already have enough information to believe the man died in 2003 of disease, this was so ludicrous that I watched from my cat bird seat for the very first time, 3D Blinders ON!!! I could see the dimensions of the deceit. Forgive me for posting this long message here, I just wanted to also point out the words of someone I deeply admire, Glenn Greenwald, who I have followed for many years – a true voice. I’m going to quote it, and he has the idea down, check out his choice of words!

        The killing of Osama bin Laden is one of those events which, especially in the immediate aftermath, is not susceptible to reasoned discussion. It’s already a Litmus Test event: all Decent People — by definition — express unadulterated ecstacy at his death, and all Good Americans chant “USA! USA!” in a celebration of this proof of our national greatness and Goodness (and that of our President). Nothing that deviates from that emotional script will be heard, other than by those on the lookout for heretics to hold up and punish. Prematurely interrupting a national emotional consensus with unwanted rational truths accomplishes nothing but harming the heretic (ask Bill Maher about how that works).”

    Sounds like a good topic for another interesting book 🙂
