Continuing discussion of the 9/11/2001 attacks, this program continues discussion of events in, and around, the event. This broadcast highlights maneuvering of a cynical, Machiavellian nature by the Underground Reich.

1. This program begins with discussion of American policy toward “Islamofascism” as being “Incoherent” and, at times, Machiavellian. “Although a major shakeup ensued within the U.S. secret service [intelligence agencies], that did not change a thing in terms of the international tribulations of the world’s primary power, which continuously oscillates between improvisation with no thought for tomorrow, and a carefully-constructed Machiavellism.” (Dollars for Terror: The United States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; Copyright 2000 [SC]; Algora Publishing; ISBN 1-892941-06-6; p. 161.)

2. Exemplifying the exploitation of Al Qaeda, the September 11 attacks and the Afghan war for economic gain, the broadcast highlights the projected pipeline carrying oil from the Caspian Sea, realized as a result of the Afghan conflict. (“A New Oil Game With New Winners” by Richard Butler; New York Times; 1/18/2002; p. A25.) (For more about this project, and the elder George Bush’s investment in Unocal, one of the backers of the project, see FTRs 328 [4], 334 [5].)

3. A major focal point of Islamic fundamentalist activity has been the Chinese province of Xinjiang. (Dollars for Terror: The United States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; pp. 10-11.) Vitally important because of its economic resources and military strategic significance, Xinjiang has experienced a wave of Wahhabi terror. (Idem.)

4. The Chinese government alleges that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda have been deeply involved with promoting terrorism among the Uighur population of Xinjiang. (“Beijing Says Chinese Muslims Were Trained as Terrorists With Money From bin Laden” by Elisabeth Rosenthal; New York Times; 1/22/2002; p. A11.) It is speculated that elements of U.S. intelligence associated with major corporate interests may have been involved with exploiting Al Qaeda in order to either promote separatism of Xinjiang and subsequent economic exploitation, or to oblige the Chinese government to accede to U.S. corporate policy in the region. As discussed, the manipulation of Islamic fundamentalism has been used to effect a similar state of affairs in the former Soviet Union. It is believable that the Underground Reich has utilized this “global corporatism” to “double” on U.S. intelligence and the United States.

5. The recent revelation that Uighur combatants were involved in a firefight with U.S. forces lends credence to the Chinese statements. (“U.S. Forces Clash With al Qaeda Gunmen” by Ellen Knickmeyer [AP]; San Francisco Chronicle; 1/28/2002; p. A9.)

6. Next, the program highlights the Islamic extremist attack on the Indian parliament and the possibility that the flare-up of Indian/Pakistani tensions may, in effect, open up a “Southern Front” allowing the exodus of Al Qaeda fighters. (“Kashmir Could Trigger al-Qaeda Escape” by Farhan Bokhari; Financial Times; 12/21/2001; p. 2.) The possibility that the Underground Reich and the Islamofascists is not one to be readily dismissed.

7. Interestingly (and perhaps significantly), the Austrian border with Slovakia has become a focal point of reconsolidation by Al Qaeda. (“Austrian Border Offers al Qaeda a New Gateway to Europe” by Eric Geiger; San Francisco Chronicle; 1/22/2002; p. A11.)

8. The broadcast highlights [6] the role of Iraqi weapons dealer Abdul Jebara as a conduit between European fascists and Saddam Hussein. (“Convicted Arms Dealer Funnels Aid from Europe’s Far Right to Iraq” by Eric Geiger; San Francisco Chronicle; 5/3/2001; pp. B1-B4.) Jebara’s operations are centered in the Austrian province of Carinthia, the domain of Austrian fascist Joerg Haider. (Ibid.; p. B1.) There are strong and long-standing Nazi and fascist connections to nationalist elements in the Arab and Muslim worlds.

9. As the U.S. has targeted Saddam Hussein (diplomatically), Haider has visited and lent support to the Iraqi dictator. (“America Turns on Haider for ‘Encouraging Saddam'” by Rupert Cornwell; London Independent; 2/14/2002.) [7]

10. The Iraqi press has trumpeted Haider’s visit as indicating European solidarity against the “U.S. and Zionist conspiracy.” (“Haider Stays in the Headlines with ‘Private’ Visit to Saddam” by Della Meth-Cohn in Vienna and William Hall in Zurich; Financial Times; 2/14/2002; p. 2.)

11. Interestingly (and perhaps significantly) Haider is supporting Iraq against the U.S. while, at the same time, manipulating anti-immigrant (and anti-Arab) sentiment in Austria for his own political benefit. (“Austrian Rightist Is Working on His Comeback” by Steven Erlanger; New York Times; 2/7/2002; p. A3.)

12. Anti-immigrant, anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment is propelling European politics to the right. (“A Jumpy, Anti-Immigrant Europe Is Creeping Rightward” by Steven Erlanger; New York Times; 1/30/2002; p. A3.)

13. The tactical alliance with, and ideological/racist opposition to, Muslims and Arabs has historical antecedents. This same duality is reflected in the policy and statements of American fascist groups in the wake of the September 11 attacks. (“After the Attacks: American White Nationalism since 11 September 2001” by Devin Burghart; Searchlight; January, 2002 [#319]; p. 34.) It is worth noting that the National Alliance (publisher of the Turner Diaries) Serpent’s Walk is among those groups. and

14. Next, the program highlights a very disturbing death. (“Crash Adds Mystery to an Inquiry” [AP]; New York Times; 1/30/2002; 2/14/2002; p. A17.) The fiery death of Katherine Smith may obscure connections between September 11 and an attempt to obtain false identification by Middle Eastern associates of Ms. Smith.

15. One of the things to ponder in connection with Bush’s preposterous “Axis of Evil” speech is the possibility that it could lead to the diplomatic, political and (perhaps) economic isolation of the United States. Iran has responded to Bush’s address by returning Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives who have fled Afghanistan to Saudi Arabia, among other places. (“Iran Poised to Send Home Terrorism Suspects” by Guy Dinmore; Financial Times; 2/13/2002; p. 6.) The Saudis have been less than vigorous in pursuing Bin Laden’s operatives.

16. The Bush speech has led to increased resentment against the United States in Iran, increased solidarity between the Iranians and the Iraqis (mortal enemies in the past) and the possibility that Iraq will attack Israel with missiles in the event of a U.S. attack on Saddam. (“Who Hijacked Our War” by Chris Matthews; San Francisco Chronicle; 2/17/2002; p. D6.) In that context, one should not dismiss prognostication made in AFA 37 [8] to the effect the Underground Reich and Germany may precipitate a Middle Eastern war with weapons of mass destruction that would annihilate Israel, kill most of the Arabs, neutralize the utility of the Middle Eastern oil fields, and make Russia the most important oil producer in the world. In addition, it may result in terrorist annihilation against the United States.

17. Considering the “Axis of Evil,” it is worth noting that the elder George Bush was the principal player in arming both Iran and Iraq in the 1980’s. This was accomplished through Bush’s own private spy agency, set up as a device to “fight terrorism.” (The Secret War Against the Jews: How Western Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People; John Loftus and Mark Aarons; Copyright 1994 [HC]; St. Martin’s Press; ISBN 0-312-11057-X; pp. 407-409.)

18. In addition to arming Iran (one element of Bush the Younger’s “Axis of Evil”), the elder Bush armed Saddam Hussein. (Ibid.; p.429.)
