Norway is a peaceful country by anyone's standards, and a beautiful one. It now has joined the list of countries attacked by "terrorists." The question is, whose terrorists. Well, according to the following article from the Los Angeles Times, two groups are being singled out:
Note that the two groups being blamed here are Al Qaeda, and, unbelievably, Neo-Nazis. Well, let's set that record straight: the are no Neo-Nazis, just "plain ole Nazis" in the brown paper wrapper, or, in this case, the brown uniforms of the storm troopers. But what really gives me pause is the ongoing persistence of the major media in thinking these two groups - radical Islam and Nazism - are somehow two discrete entities. Let's do a little history here. In the 1920s, the Anglo-American elite decided that Saudi Arabia - then non-existent - needed to "exist" and sponsored the radical Wahabists into power, who promptly in the form of the House of Saud, banned the Ikhwan Muslimeen, or Muslim brotherhood, who fled to Egypt where, predictably enough, they joined the Egyptian Muslim brotherhood that had been founded by Hassan al Banna in 1928.
Remember him? He's the guy that thought Adolf Hitler and Nazism were the best thing since hookahs. This Muslim brotherhood was fully integrated into German military intelligence during the Second World War, and of course, it was this group that had its post-war connections with the Nazi International during the period of the overthrow of King Farouk, a CIA-sponsored affair, but an affair whose on-the-ground troops were people such as SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny(Hitler's favorite commando), Dr. Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht (Hitler's Reichsbank president), Dr. Wilhelm Voss (remember him? He was the civilian liaison to SS General Hans Kammler's secret weapons "think tank"), SS General Wilhelm Farmbacher, and a former member of the Nazi propaganda ministry of Dr. Josef Goebbels, who soon translated into Arabic the notorious Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, which translation has been the favored translation ever since. All this I detail in The Nazi International.
Eventually, of course, Gamel Abdul Nasser expelled these Nazis from Egypt and replaced them with the Soviets. Out of the Nazi frying pan, and into the Communist fire, except that, even here, there was a Nazi hand, as the man running the Soviet foreign ministry's Arab desk at the time was, you guessed it, a "former" Nazi. The expelled Arab component of this Nazified Muslim brotherhood were allowed to return to Saudi Arabia, where they became school teachers. (This whole story is detailed in John Loftus' excellent book, America's Nazi Secret, pp. 14-15). From there, this brotherhood became the organization behind other groups from Hamas to Islamic Jihad, with connections, of course, to Osama Bin Laden who - like Nazi General Kammler - died several times under different circumstances.
The question no one seems to want to ask is thus this: given all the post-war survival of Nazis, are we really looking at just the activity of radicalized Muslims? or is there another, deeper, player, with deep pockets, international organization, and a murderous agenda? It's time, given the tragic events in Norway, that we at least entertain the idea.
