FTR #674 The Next Generation Takes the Stage (Caution: Neo-Nazis at Work)

Lis­ten:
MP3: 30-Minute Seg­ment [1]
REALAUDIO [2] NB: This RealAu­dio stream con­tains FTRs 673 and 674 in sequence. Each is a 30 minute seg­ment.

This descrip­tion con­tains arti­cles that were not includ­ed in the orig­i­nal broad­cast, in some cas­es because the sto­ries broke after the pro­gram was record­ed. Do not fail to note with whom Holo­caust Muse­um shoot­er James Van Brunn was asso­ci­at­ed!

Doc­u­ment­ing the var­ied and grow­ing activ­i­ties of “neo”-Nazi ele­ments around the world, we note that a mem­ber of the British fas­cist par­ty (BNP) has been invit­ed [3] to an annu­al tea that the Queen of Eng­land has at Buck­ing­ham Palace.

Sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous broad­casts high­light­ing the re-emer­gence of fas­cism in the Ukraine [4], the pro­gram notes the ban­ning of a Holo­caust doc­u­men­tary by the neo-fas­cist/­na­tion­al­ist group mis­named “Free­dom.” The gov­ern­ment of Vik­tor Yuschenko [5] has (to a cer­tain extent) reca­pit­u­lat­ed the polit­i­cal agen­da [6] of the fas­cist OUN/B [7] in the Ukraine.

Next, vis­it­ing a sto­ry that broke after the pro­gram was record­ed, we note that the alleged slay­er [8] of an abor­tion-pro­vid­ing physi­cian in Kansas was asso­ci­at­ed with the “Sov­er­eign” move­ment, a populist/Nazi move­ment that main­tains that its mem­bers are “sov­er­eign” and don’t have to pay tax­es. They also call them­selves the “Law­men” and are a bunch of rav­ing fas­cists. Some of them are stone killers. Sad­ly (pre­dictably?), they have gar­nered con­sid­er­able suc­cess in mar­ket­ing their agen­da to the so-called “pro­gres­sive” polit­i­cal sec­tor.

In FTR #668 [9], we not­ed the killing of three Pitts­burgh cops, alleged­ly by a neo-fas­cist named Richard Poplaws­ki. At rough­ly the same time as the Pitts­burgh cop kil­ings, anoth­er neo-fas­cist named Joshua Cartwright [10] killed two Flori­da cops.

Just before being pub­lished anoth­er of the milieu of the “Freemen”, “Sov­er­eigns”, anti-tax and anti-abor­tion milieu com­mit­ted yet anoth­er mur­der. James Van Brunn [11] killed a secu­ri­ty guard at the Nation­al Holo­caust Muse­um. Van Brunn, too, adhered to the neo-Nazi creed and was an asso­ciate of Rea­gan White House staffer Todd Blod­gett [12].

Among the most promi­nent Amer­i­can neo-fas­cists is for­mer KKK leader David Duke [13], who has relo­cat­ed to Aus­tria, alleged­ly to become a naturalist/bird watch­er! Oth­er “Reichish” per­sons with whom Duke might net­work while in cen­tral Europe include NPD leader Udo Voigt [14] (recent­ly ban­ished from a Ger­man mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tion) and “anar­chist” neo-Nazis [15], who are begin­ning to pop­u­late the increas­ing­ly vio­lent Ger­man neo-Nazi scene. Swedish neo-Nazi leader Patrik Brinkmann [16] has relo­cat­ed to Ger­many and might bump into Duke as well.

One cen­tral Euro­pean neo-Nazi with whom Duke will not be net­work­ing is Michael Dwyer [17]. Though of Irish descent, Dwyer was asso­ci­at­ed with Hun­gar­i­an and Roman­ian “neo’s”–until he was shot dead dur­ing an attempt on the life of Boli­vian pres­i­dent Evo Morales. A domes­tic KKK leader whom Duke will not meet again is Klan leader (and prob­a­ble U.S. intel­li­gence oper­a­tive) Roy Frankhouser [18], who died at the age of 69.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Inter­nal secu­ri­ty leaks that have imper­iled Ger­man fight­ing forces [19] in Afghanistan; review of links between neo-fas­cists and “Black Bloc” anar­chists; review of neo-fas­cist links with Islamists; dis­cus­sion of the fal­la­cy of assum­ing that neo-Nazis and neo-fas­cists are “une­d­u­cat­ed” and/or “red­necks;” review of Frankhouse­r’s link to the death of Lee Har­vey Oswald asso­ciate and Amer­i­can Nazi Par­ty mem­ber Daniel Bur­ros; review of the key posi­tion with­in the Rea­gan Admin­is­tra­tion held by Nation­al Alliance asso­ciate Bob Whitak­er [20].

1. We begin with an arti­cle not includ­ed in the orig­i­nal broad­cast. A mem­ber of the British fas­cist par­ty (BNP) has been invit­ed to an annu­al tea that the Queen of Eng­land has at Buck­ing­ham Palace.

“BNP leader Nick Grif­fin [21] looked set to be barred from attend­ing a Buck­ing­ham Palace [22] gar­den par­ty as the polit­i­cal back­lash over his con­tro­ver­sial invi­ta­tion grew last night. Pres­sure was grow­ing on Richard Barn­brook [23], the far-right group’s Lon­don Assem­bly mem­ber who has invit­ed Mr Grif­fin to accom­pa­ny him to the event on July 21, to nom­i­nate a ‘more accept­able guest’ or have his invi­ta­tion with­drawn.

Lon­don May­or Boris John­son [24] has writ­ten to Lon­don Assem­bly chair­man Dar­ren John­son demand­ing deci­sive action to pre­vent any ‘poten­tial embar­rass­ment to Her Majesty’. . . . .”

2. Sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous broad­casts high­light­ing the re-emer­gence of fas­cism in the Ukraine, the pro­gram notes the ban­ning of a Holo­caust doc­u­men­tary by the neo-fas­cist/­na­tion­al­ist group mis­named “Free­dom.” The gov­ern­ment of Vik­tor Yuschenko [5] has (to a cer­tain extent) reca­pit­u­lat­ed the polit­i­cal agen­da [6] of the fas­cist OUN/B [7] in the Ukraine.

“A doc­u­men­tary film about the Holo­caust has incit­ed the wrath of the Ukrain­ian nation­al­ist orga­ni­za­tion Free­dom. The film, an ama­teur pro­duc­tion enti­tled Two Tan­gos, was shown once in Lvov to old­er Pol­ish-speak­ing school chil­dren at a state school at the end of last year. The show­ing was spon­sored by the Jew­ish NGO Chesed Aryeh as part of a pro­gram in the local schools to encour­age tol­er­ance.

Local Free­dom leader Ivan Gryn­da sent a com­plaint to the city pros­e­cu­tor, claim­ing the show­ing con­sti­tut­ed anti-Ukrain­ian activ­i­ty. Gryn­da was offend­ed by his­tor­i­cal footage in the film show­ing women in tra­di­tion­al Ukrain­ian dress wel­com­ing Nazi sol­diers with flow­ers. After a mon­th’s inves­ti­ga­tion, the pros­e­cu­tor found that there was no crim­i­nal ele­ment in the show­ing of the film. Local author­i­ties pres­sured schools to avoid the film in any case.

The inter­ven­tion of Pol­ish diplo­mats was nec­es­sary to save the direc­tor of the Pol­ish school from dis­missal. Free­dom then insist­ed that a com­mis­sion, made up of city offi­cials and Gryn­da, be formed and that it send the film to edu­ca­tion­al experts. The experts com­ment­ed that the film was inap­pro­pri­ate for young chil­dren due to its vio­lent con­tent. As a result, Chesed Aryeh was banned from con­duct­ing any activ­i­ties in the Lvov school sys­tem.

Free­dom gained atten­tion last month after it financed a cam­paign of posters prais­ing the local Waf­fen-SS Gali­cia divi­sion. The large posters depict­ed the emblem of the divi­sion with the words ‘They defend­ed Ukraine’ writ­ten on them in Ukrain­ian. Free­dom also suc­cess­ful­ly pressed for a plaque to be erect­ed to the mem­o­ry of that divi­sion. Lvov (Lviv in Ukrain­ian) is an ancient city in the west of Ukraine with a pop­u­la­tion of almost three-quar­ters of a mil­lion peo­ple. It had large Jew­ish and Pol­ish com­mu­ni­ties before the Sec­ond World War. Those com­mu­ni­ties were near­ly com­plete­ly anni­hi­lat­ed.”

3. Vis­it­ing a sto­ry that broke after the pro­gram was record­ed, we note that the alleged slay­er of an abor­tion-pro­vid­ing physi­cian in Kansas was asso­ci­at­ed with the “Sov­er­eign” move­ment, a populist/Nazi move­ment that main­tains that its mem­bers are “sov­er­eign” and don’t have to pay tax­es. They also call them­selves the “Law­men” and are a bunch of rav­ing fas­cists. Some of them are stone killers. Sad­ly (pre­dictably?), they have gar­nered con­sid­er­able suc­cess in mar­ket­ing their agen­da to the so-called “pro­gres­sive” polit­i­cal sec­tor.

“The sus­pect in cus­tody in con­nec­tion with the slay­ing of abor­tion doc­tor George Tiller was a mem­ber of an anti-gov­ern­ment group in the 1990s and a staunch oppo­nent of abor­tion. . . Roed­er, who in the 1990s was a man­u­fac­tur­ing assem­bly­man, also was involved in the ‘Freemen’ move­ment.

‘Freemen’ was a term adopt­ed by those who claimed sov­er­eign­ty from gov­ern­ment juris­dic­tion and oper­at­ed under their own legal sys­tem, which they called com­mon-law courts. Adher­ents declared them­selves exempt from laws, reg­u­la­tions and tax­es and often filed liens against judges, pros­e­cu­tors and oth­ers, claim­ing that mon­ey was owed to them as com­pen­sa­tion.

In April 1996, Roed­er was arrest­ed in Tope­ka after Shawnee Coun­ty sher­if­f’s deputies stopped him for not hav­ing a prop­er license plate. In his car, offi­cers said they found ammu­ni­tion, a blast­ing cap, a fuse cord, a one-pound can of gun­pow­der and two 9‑volt bat­ter­ies, with one con­nect­ed to a switch that could have been used to trig­ger a bomb. . . .”

4. In FTR #668 [9], we not­ed the killing of three Pitts­burgh cops, alleged­ly by a neo-fas­cist named Richard Poplaws­ki. A crea­ture of the same polit­i­cal stripe as Roed­er, Poplaws­ki was also a fol­low­er of 9/11 “Truther” Alex Jones, him­self a fel­low-trav­eller of the neo-Nazi move­ment. (Note: Jones also fea­tures some anti-fas­cist mate­r­i­al on his broad­cast. He is not nec­es­sar­i­ly an ide­o­logue, rather, it is sad­ly char­ac­ter­is­tic of the con­tem­po­rary polit­i­cal land­scape that com­men­ta­tors present fas­cists as anti-fas­cists and often can’t tell the dif­fer­ence.) At rough­ly the same time as the Pitts­burgh cop kil­ings, anoth­er neo-fas­cist named Joshua Cartwright killed two Flori­da cops.

” . . . Aca­d­e­mics and anti-bias groups agree that peo­ple like Poplaws­ki, Cum­mings, and Joshua Cartwright — a 28-year-old Nation­al Guards­man, nascent white suprema­cist, and mili­tia enthu­si­ast who died in a gun bat­tle after killing two sher­if­f’s deputies in Pen­saco­la, Fla. — are on the fringes of Amer­i­can soci­ety and hold lit­tle polit­i­cal influ­ence. A New York Times-CBS News poll last week found that two-thirds of Amer­i­cans now say race rela­tions are gen­er­al­ly good. . . .”

5a. Just before being pub­lished anoth­er of the milieu of the “Freemen”, “Sov­er­eigns”, anti-tax and anti-abor­tion milieu com­mit­ted yet anoth­er mur­der. James Van Brunn killed a secu­ri­ty guard at the Nation­al Holo­caust Muse­um. Van Brunn, too, adhered to the neo-Nazi creed.

“On Decem­ber 7, 1981, a man named James W. Von Brunn pulled out a sawed-off shot­gun at the Fed­er­al Reserve Board head­quar­ters, claim­ing to have plant­ed a bomb and threat­en­ing to take mem­bers of the Board hostage. That was 40 years to the day after the Japan­ese bombed Pearl Har­bor, though it’s unclear whether that’s a coin­ci­dence or not.

Years lat­er, he’d describe the entire inci­dent some­what dif­fer­ent­ly.

‘In 1981 Von Brunn attempt­ed to place the trea­so­nous Fed­er­al Reserve Board of Gov­er­nors under legal, non-vio­lent, cit­i­zens arrest. He was tried in a Wash­ing­ton, D.C. Supe­ri­or Court; con­vict­ed by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attor­neys, and sen­tenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal.

At the time of his sen­tenc­ing in March, 1983, he was 62 years old. He ulti­mate­ly served six and a half years in prison, which seem­ing­ly did noth­ing to change his extreme views on race. Almost 20 years after he was released, police say, he stormed the secured entrance of the Holo­caust Muse­um in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., with a shot­gun and opened fire, wound­ing one guard. [The guard lat­er died–D.E.] He was ulti­mate­ly shot him­self.

Von Brunn, appar­ent­ly a World War II vet, has a long his­to­ry of white suprema­cist writ­ing. His book, ‘Kill The Best Gen­tiles,’ embraces Adolf Hitler’s view that Jews con­coct­ed World War I as part of a scheme to stab Ger­many in the back — a myth the Nazis used to jus­ti­fy the Holo­caust.

He also wrote an inter­net post­ing com­plain­ing that Oba­ma’s birth cer­tifi­cate and oth­er doc­u­ments have not been made pub­lic.

In 2003, he claimed to have con­duct­ed an inves­ti­ga­tion into the eth­nic and reli­gious back­ground of Tom­my Franks, the CENTCOM com­man­der at the time, after some US troops were placed under British com­mand in Iraq. . . .”

5b. Van Brunn was linked to for­mer Rea­gan White House aide Todd Blod­gett. In this con­text, it is impor­tant to recall that the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion per­son­nel were select­ed by Otto von Bolschwing [25] pro­tege Helene Von Damm [26].

” . . . Todd Blod­gett, a for­mer White House aide to Pres­i­dent Ronald Rea­gan who lat­er became affil­i­at­ed with extrem­ist groups, said he spent a lot of time with Von Brunn in the 1990s and ear­ly 2000s.
Von Brunn is obsessed with Jew­ish peo­ple, Blod­gett told the Post. He had equal con­tempt for both Jews and blacks, but if he had to pick one group to wipe out, he’d always say it would be Jews.
Von Brunn went so far as to say he fought on the wrong side of World War II, accord­ing to Blod­gett.
You’d get the impres­sion that he was intel­li­gent and a bit off, said Blod­gett, who worked as a paid FBI infor­mant on white suprema­cist groups. . . .”

“Holo­caust Muse­um Shoot­ing Sus­pect Had Been Grow­ing More Hate­ful and Des­per­ate”; Fox News; 6/11/2009. [12]

5c. Blod­gett man­aged the Nazi music label Resis­tance Records for the Lib­er­ty Lob­by. The label was then acquired by the Nation­al Alliance [27] and its leader William Pierce.

” . . . the asso­ci­a­tion between the Lib­er­ty Lob­by and Resis­tance Records; the involve­ment of for­mer Rea­gan White House Staffer Todd Blod­gett in the Lib­er­ty Lobby’s financ­ing of Resis­tance Records; William Pierce’s stat­ed inten­tion to use Resis­tance Records to mar­ket black met­al music . . .”

Descrip­tion for FTR #211. [28]

5d. Again not­ing the lega­cy of the Helene Von Damm/Otto von Bolschwing [29] axis with­in the GOP, the pro­gram high­lights the fact that Amer­i­can neo-Nazi Bob Whitak­er [20] held a sen­si­tive posi­tion with­in the Rea­gan White House. Avail­able evi­dence sug­gests very strong­ly that Van Damm served as a func­tionary of the Under­ground Reich. Notice the posi­tion of Nation­al Alliance asso­ciate Bob Whitak­er with­in the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion: ” . . . Spe­cial Assis­tant to the Direc­tor of the Office of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment, in charge of secu­ri­ty clear­ances, staffing, and that sort of thing. . . .”

” . . . KAS: When we intro­duced you for the first time to our read­ers in Nation­al Van­guard, we gave a cap­sule biog­ra­phy of you as fol­lows:

‘Mr. Whitak­er was born and raised in South Car­oli­na, and attend­ed the Uni­ver­si­ty of South Car­oli­na and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Vir­ginia Grad­u­ate School. He has been a col­lege pro­fes­sor, an inter­na­tion­al avi­a­tion nego­tia­tor, a Capi­tol Hill senior staffer, a Rea­gan Admin­is­tra­tion appointee, and a writer for the Voice of Amer­i­ca.”

So you’re a Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion appointee — what’s the sto­ry behind that?

BW: I was Spe­cial Assis­tant to the Direc­tor of the Office of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment, in charge of secu­ri­ty clear­ances, staffing, and that sort of thing.

KAS: Why is some­one with such excel­lent estab­lish­ment cre­den­tials defend­ing the White race, as you do in your work, with­out apol­o­gy or regret? Isn’t that some­thing that sim­ply ‘isn’t done’ these days by any­one who wants to retain his posi­tion in pri­vate or pub­lic life?

BW: Well, I did it. And they cleared me at the high­est pos­si­ble lev­els, so if you do it right, you can do it. And I’m good at it. . . .”

6. For­mer KKK leader David Duke [31] has relo­cat­ed to Aus­tria, alleged­ly to pur­sue a career as a naturalist–specifically a bird-watch­er.

“David E Duke, who was once a KKK Grand Wiz­ard, runs a busi­ness sell­ing pho­tographs of rare birds and oth­er wildlife in a vil­lage near Salzburg. The dis­cov­ery has out­raged his neigh­bours in Aus­tria which has strug­gled to shake off the scourge of a new wave of far right politi­cians. Mr Duke, who has pre­vi­ous­ly denied Adolf Hitler used gas cham­bers in the holo­caust, has rent­ed a house by the Zeller lake near the city.

Local Green Par­ty politi­cian Karl Oellinger said Mr Duke roamed the Aus­tri­an Alps tak­ing snaps of birds and wildlife and sell­ing them on the inter­net. ‘He’s reg­is­tered as liv­ing in Salzburg and although I can’t check offi­cial files I have it on good infor­ma­tion he has lived there for four or five years,’ he said. ‘The Aus­tri­an police have known he’s been here all along. Appar­ent­ly he can live here unchal­lenged as he trav­els to oth­er coun­tries to help the far-right move­ment.’

Mr Duke was recent­ly deport­ed from the neigh­bour­ing Czech Repub­lic after pro­mot­ing one of his books in Prague. But Gov­ern­ment offi­cials have said he is free to stay in Aus­tria as long as he does not break any local laws. Alexan­der Marakovits, Inte­ri­or Min­is­ter spokesman, said: ‘As a US cit­i­zen he can, as a tourist, stay three months at a time with­out a visa. And cur­rent­ly there is no evi­dence of crim­i­nal acts.’

Mr Duke said he lived a qui­et life in Aus­tria: ‘I’m not in Aus­tria for any polit­i­cal activ­i­ties. I just come to Aus­tria to relax — the moun­tains are beau­ti­ful. The Aus­tri­an Alps are just beau­ti­ful. There’s beau­ty all over the world.’ . . .”

“For­mer KKK Grand Wiz­ard Liv­ing in Aus­tria”; Telegraph.co.uk; 5/13/2009. [32]

7. Per­haps Duke will even­tu­al­ly net­work with Patrik Brinkmann, a Swedish neo-Nazi who recent­ly relo­cat­ed to Berlin.

“Ger­man intel­li­gence agents view Patrik Brinkmann as a lead­ing fig­ure among right-wing extrem­ists around the world. He found­ed the Con­ti­nent Europe Foun­da­tion in 2004 in Swe­den. The aim of the Con­ti­nent Europe Foun­da­tion leader Patrik Brinkmann is to move to Berlin by 2010 at the lat­est and cre­ate a Europe-wide Inter­na­tionale of nation­al­ists in coop­er­a­tion with nation­al organ­i­sa­tions from all Euro­pean peo­ple,” the group said in a state­ment.

Andreas Gram, a Chris­t­ian Demo­c­ra­t­ic mem­ber of the Berlin state leg­is­la­ture, on Thurs­day called the lat­est devel­op­ments in the far-right scene “wor­ry­ing” and demand­ed more infor­ma­tion from the domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice on the mat­ter. Fed­er­al and state author­i­ties keep­ing tabs on the neo-Nazi scene con­sid­er Brinkmann and his organ­i­sa­tion to be part of a “new right” that oper­ates inter­na­tion­al­ly. . . .”

8. Inves­ti­gat­ing oth­er aspects of the Euro­pean neo-Nazi and neo-fas­cist scene, we high­light the dis­missal of NPD [33] leader Udo Voigt from a Ger­man mil­i­tary asso­ci­a­tion. The NPD is the lead­ing Ger­man neo-Nazi par­ty.

“Leader of the neo-Nazi NPD par­ty Udo Voigt [34] has been kicked off the DBwV Ger­man Mil­i­tary Asso­ci­a­tion after being sen­tenced to incite­ment of hatred and slan­der in a racial dis­crim­i­na­tion tri­al last month, broad­cast­er RBB report­ed on Wednes­day. The DBwV’s lead­er­ship decid­ed unan­i­mous­ly to exclude Voigt from the organ­i­sa­tion due to the April 24 ver­dict, Lieu­tenant Colonel Ulrich Kirsch told RBB.

Voigt, a cap­tain in the Bun­deswehr reserves, belonged to the asso­ci­a­tion for some 30 years, but now faces dis­ci­pli­nary action in a mil­i­tary court. If he los­es his mil­i­tary sta­tus in these pro­ceed­ings, he also faces being barred from the mil­i­tary reserve asso­ci­a­tion too, Kirsch said.

Voigt and two oth­er NPD lead­ers were found guilty of offend­ing Ger­man nation­al foot­baller Patrick Owom­oyela — who was born in Ger­many to a Niger­ian father and a Ger­man moth­er — in a World Cup pam­phlet print­ed in 2006. The cov­er of the plan­ner showed a Ger­man foot­ball uni­form with the cap­tion, ‘White. Not just a jer­sey-colour! For a tru­ly nation­al team!’ ”

9. Ger­many has been beset by a new brand of neo-fas­cist. Dubbed “anar­chist” neo-Nazis by the estimable Der Spiegel, this brand of neo-fas­cist imi­tates the behav­ior of, and appar­ent­ly works with, the “Black Bloc.” This type of alliance has been cov­ered before, specif­i­cal­ly in FTR #397 [36]. Note that, as is the case with “populist/fascists” in the U.S., such as some of the fas­cist tax pro­test­ers, there is a grow­ing trend of fas­cist ele­ments suc­cess­ful­ly net­work­ing with left­ists. (Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Shows 19 and 21 [37] doc­u­ment this trend, as well as grow­ing liaisons between fas­cist ele­ments and Third World move­ments, includ­ing Islamists.)

“New fig­ures from Ger­many’s domes­tic intel­li­gence agency show that the num­ber of far-right crimes in Ger­many increased by 16 per­cent in 2008. Offi­cials warn of the rise of Black Bloc-style ‘anar­chist’ neo-Nazis who active­ly seek vio­lence at demon­stra­tions. Author­i­ties in Ger­many have warned of a wor­ry­ing new ten­den­cy with­in the far-right scene — the rise of vio­lent ‘anar­chist’ neo-Nazis.

Heinz Fromm, the pres­i­dent of Ger­many’s domes­tic intel­li­gence agency, the Office for the Pro­tec­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion, warned Tues­day of a ‘new phe­nom­e­non’ with­in the far-right scene. Pre­sent­ing the agen­cy’s 2008 report in Berlin, he said that over the last two years a scene had emerged of ‘anar­chist’ neo-Nazis who dress sim­i­lar­ly to the so-called Black Bloc [38] of far-left anar­chists and who delib­er­ate­ly seek vio­lence at demon­stra­tions. He put the num­ber of so-called ‘right-wing anar­chists’ at between 400 and 500 peo­ple. . . Schäu­ble and Fromm also warned of the threat of Islamist ter­ror­ism in Ger­many. Although there has not been a suc­cess­ful Islamist ter­ror attack in Ger­many to date, that was no rea­son for com­pla­cen­cy, they said.

‘We are still in the cross-hairs of vio­lent Islamists,’ Schäu­ble warned, say­ing that the Ger­man mil­i­tary’s mis­sion in Afghanistan is ‘a thorn in the side’ of Islamists. There are ‘sig­nif­i­cant’ num­bers of poten­tial Islamist extrem­ists in Ger­many, Schäu­ble said, includ­ing con­verts to Islam. Many Islamists have trav­eled from Ger­many to Pak­istan to attend al-Qai­da train­ing camps and there have been mes­sages from ter­ror­ist groups clear­ly tar­get­ing Ger­many in recent months. Cer­tain Mus­lim groups in Ger­many, such as the Islamist Mil­li Görüs move­ment, want to intro­duce Sharia law in Ger­many, the agency warned in its report. . . . ”

10. Tal­iban forces in Afghanistan have demon­strat­ed oper­a­tional capa­bil­i­ties indi­cat­ing sur­pris­ing­ly good intel­li­gence about Bun­deswehr activ­i­ties in that coun­try. With the grow­ing Islamist con­tin­gent in Ger­many deploy­ing fight­ers to Afghanistan, as well as a doc­u­ment­ed link between Islamists and neo-Nazis [39], one won­ders about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of an inter­nal intel­li­gence leak in the Ger­man nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment. As not­ed above in the arti­cle about Udo Voigt, there is a neo-Nazi pres­ence in the Ger­man mil­i­tary milieu. It is also dis­tinct­ly pos­si­ble that the leaks are with­in the deeply alien­at­ed Afghan pop­u­la­tion, who are increas­ing­ly hos­tile to the NATO and allied pres­ence.

“Dead­ly attacks on the Ger­man mil­i­tary by the Tal­iban in Afghanistan this week have led intel­li­gence experts to sus­pect the Islamist group may have access to Ger­man gov­ern­ment infor­ma­tion. Sup­pos­ed­ly the Tal­iban had spe­cif­ic details of what was sup­posed to be a secret vis­it by For­eign Min­is­ter Frank-Wal­ter Stein­meier to the coun­try this week. Accord­ing to a west­ern intel­li­gence offi­cer in Kab­ul, there are ‘clear signs’ that the Tal­iban has access to secret infor­ma­tion from the Ger­man gov­ern­ment. . . .”

11. A recent attempt on the life of Boli­vian pres­i­dent Evo Morales fea­tured par­tic­i­pa­tion by an Irish neo-Nazi who asso­ci­at­ed with cen­tral Euro­pean neo-fas­cist groups that, in turn, may well have evolved from orga­ni­za­tions that were allies of the Third Reich. Note that both the Roman­ian Iron Guard [40] and the Hun­gar­i­an Arrow-Cross orga­ni­za­tions were allied with the Nazis, in addi­tion to jump­ing to the Gehlen spy orga­ni­za­tion, CIA and GOP eth­nic her­itage orga­ni­za­tion.

“The Boli­vian author­i­ties have claimed that Michael Dwyer, the Tip­per­ary man shot dead by police two weeks ago, was heav­i­ly involved in neo-Nazi ter­ror group Szek­ler Legion. Last week the Boli­vian gov­ern­ment released pic­tures of Mr Dwyer and oth­er mem­bers of the group pos­ing for pho­tographs sur­round­ed by guns. The group is also sus­pect­ed of plant­i­ng a bomb at the home of a Catholic car­di­nal in Bolivia the day before he and two Hun­gar­i­an ter­ror­ists were shot dead.

The same ter­ror group, which the Boli­vians say Mr Dwyer (24) joined last Octo­ber, was sus­pect­ed of car­ry­ing out a series of attacks on the homes of Boli­vian cab­i­net min­is­ters, civ­il ser­vants and politi­cians since 2006 when its leader Eduar­do Rozsa-Flo­res sneaked into the coun­try.

One of Rozsa-Flo­res’ clos­est asso­ciates, also a 32-year-old Hun­gar­i­an, is liv­ing in Ire­land and met Michael Dwyer when they worked togeth­er for the secu­ri­ty firm I‑RMS dur­ing its con­tract with Shell. I‑RMS was mak­ing no com­ment on the affair but sources in the secu­ri­ty indus­try said the Hun­gar­i­an they employed had prop­er cre­den­tials and has no known crim­i­nal record in Hun­gary or else­where. On Fri­day the Boli­vian gov­ern­ment released pic­tures tak­en from cam­eras found in the rooms in the four-star hotel where five mem­ber of the gang were stay­ing. The pic­tures include sev­er­al of Dwyer hold­ing guns and rifles.

The 32-year-old Hun­gar­i­an ex-sol­dier trav­elled to Bolivia with Dwyer on Octo­ber 20 along with two oth­er Hun­gar­i­ans. While Dwyer stayed on the three Hun­gar­i­ans returned, two to Hun­gary and the 32-year-old ex-sol­dier to Cavan. It is believed he and a num­ber of oth­er men of east Euro­pean nation­al­i­ty attend­ed Dwyer’s funer­al in Tip­per­ary on Thurs­day but did not speak to any mourn­ers.

Despite repeat­ed claims that Mr Dwyer was an inno­cent par­ty and had been asso­ci­at­ed with “adven­tur­ers”, pho­tographs released by the Boli­vian author­i­ties last week show he was heav­i­ly armed and close with the ter­ror­ist ring-leader Rozsa-Flo­res, a man who has been impli­cat­ed in eth­nic cleans­ing in for­mer Yugoslavia and who, at his own admis­sion, was active­ly seek­ing the over­throw of left-wing Boli­vian pres­i­dent Evo Morales.

He is also believed to have been an active mem­ber of Szek­ler Legion, led by Rozsa-Flo­res, until he was shot dead in San­ta Cruz. In one of the pic­tures appar­ent­ly tak­en on New Year’s Day, Dwyer and Rosza-Flo­res are sit­ting at a table cov­ered with firearms and ammu­ni­tion smil­ing to the cam­era.

Dwyer also he had a Nazi SS insignia tat­tooed on his arm. The tat­too was dis­guised in an elab­o­rate, larg­er design but is clear­ly vis­i­ble on his arm. He joked about it with asso­ciates on his Face­book page. Gar­dai are now inves­ti­gat­ing the activ­i­ties of the neo-fas­cist Hun­gar­i­ans and Roma­ni­ans who have come to the Repub­lic in recent years. . . .”

12. Anoth­er mem­ber of the inter­na­tion­al fas­cist scene who will not be seen any­more is the late Roy Frankhouser, Jr. A Penn­syl­va­nia Klan leader, Frankhouser was alleged­ly a U.S. intel­li­gence con­tract agent, either CIA or Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil. As dis­cussed in AFA #13 [41], it was at the home of Frankhouser that Amer­i­can Nazi Par­ty mem­ber and Lee Har­vey Oswald asso­ciate Daniel Bur­ros com­mit­ted his three-bul­let “sui­cide.”

“The self-pro­claimed head of the Ku Klux Klan in Penn­syl­va­nia died Fri­day in Spruce Manor Nurs­ing Home, West Read­ing, with no known sur­vivors. Roy E. Frankhouser Jr., 69, who had oper­at­ed the Moun­tain Church of Jesus Christ in the 100 block of South Fourth Street, which dou­bled as the local KKK head­quar­ters, had resided in Spruce Manor since Novem­ber 2006. . . .”
