Turk­ish demon­stra­tors burn­ing Chi­nese flag

Intro­duc­tion: This pro­gram under­scores key aspects of the high­ly com­plex dynam­ics sur­round­ing the 9/11 attacks and sub­se­quent events.

Once again, we vis­it the sub­ject of the Earth Island [9] or “World Island” as it is some­times called. Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, Chi­na and India, that stretch of land: com­pris­es most of the world’s land mass; con­tains most of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and most of the world’s nat­ur­al resources (includ­ing oil and nat­ur­al gas.) Geopoliti­cians have long seen con­trol­ling that land mass as the key to world dom­i­na­tion.  The pop­u­la­tion that occu­pies the mid­dle of that stretch of geog­ra­phy is large­ly Mus­lim.

Uti­liz­ing that Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion to con­trol the resources of the Earth Island is a strategem [10] that has been in effect [11] in the West for a cen­tu­ry.

After review­ing the pres­ence of Chechen [12] fight­ers in Ukraine [13], we shift East­ward to exam­ine oper­a­tions under­tak­en against Chi­na. (We won­der if the recent Russ­ian build up of air force infra­struc­ture in Syr­ia may have some­thing to do with the for­mer­ly Syr­i­an-based Chechen fight­ers with ISIS decamp­ing to Ukraine?

We are now see­ing the Uighurs [14], a Turko­phone [15]Mus­lim group [16] in the petro­le­um and nat­ur­al-resources-rich Xin­jiang province of Chi­na, receiv­ing sup­port from the Pan-Turk­ist/­fas­cist [17]  Nation­al Action Par­ty [18] and its youth wing [19]the Grey Wolves [20].

As Rus­sia is being boxed in by renascent Ukrain­ian fas­cism in the East [21] and Cau­casian Islamist ter­ror in the Cau­ca­sus [22], we must won­der if the NAP/Grey Wolf  [23]PR offen­sive against Chi­na and on behalf of the Uighurs is part of an ongo­ing [24] NATO/U.S./Underground Reich effort against the core of the Earth Island, Rus­sia and Chi­na.

Next, the pro­gram flesh­es out infor­ma­tion about the sep­a­ratist move­ment in Xin­jiang province [25], Chi­na. Note that both Islamist and non-theo­crat­ic Pan-Turk­ist ele­ments are involved in this move­ment. Ele­ments of the Uighur/Xinjiang sep­a­ratist move­ment have strong con­nec­tions to Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-con­nect­ed ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions like al-Qae­da.

Dalai Lama and his asso­ciate, SS war crim­i­nal Bruno Beger

[27]The broad­cast reviews the fact that the Dalai Lama [28] has col­lab­o­rat­ed with Islamists from among the Uighur pop­u­la­tion of Xin­jiang province of Chi­na. (The Uighurs refer to Xin­jiang as East or East­ern Turkestan.) With Xin­jiang province being rich in petro­le­um, the Uighurs have had lit­tle trou­ble obtain­ing sup­port from for­eign intel­li­gence ser­vices. For addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about Uighur involve­ment with the Mus­lim Brotherhood/Al Qae­da milieu, see FTR#348 [29] as well as FTR#549 [30]It should be not­ed that we are a long way from deal­ing with “Bud­dhists” here!! The Dalai Lama’s milieu is part of a larg­er Under­ground Reich “vir­tu­al state.” It is also impor­tant to bear in mind that the milieu of which the Dalai Lama is a part appears to focus on Cen­tral Asia—that part of the “Earth Island” seen by geopoliti­cians as key to con­trol­ling that land mass and, as a con­se­quence, the world. Note that the Uighurs are count­ed by the Pan-Turk­ists as among the “out­side Turks” to be includ­ed in a “Greater Turkestan”.

We reit­er­ate the role that Islamists asso­ci­at­ed with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood [31] play in the multi­na­tion­al cor­po­rate glob­al­iza­tion move­ment. They are work­ing in a fash­ion that dimin­ish­es nation­al con­trol and reg­u­la­tion and accen­tu­ates lais­sez-faire mar­ket dynam­ics. (This was set forth at some length in FTR #862 [32], among oth­er pro­grams.)

Exam­in­ing the use of two dif­fer­ent types of what Peter Lev­en­da [33] termed “weaponized reli­gion,” we high­light Pan-Turk­ist/Uighur activist Erkin Altep­kin’s links to: the Dalai Lama, ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence, the UNPO of Karl Von Hab­s­burg and Islamist­s/­Pan-Turk­ists asso­ci­at­ed with Mus­lim Broth­er­hood ter­ror­ist off­shoots.

For those who strug­gle with under­stand­ing the Altepkin/Dalai Lama/fascist asso­ci­a­tion, we review [34] some of our dis­cus­sion with Peter Lev­en­da about the Dalai Lama, his asso­ci­a­tion with ele­ments of the SS and the Third Reich AFTER the war and his work on behalf of West­ern intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar.) For more about the Dalai Lama’s sin­is­ter asso­ci­a­tions, see FTR #547 [35].)

[36]

Stephan Ban­dera

Not­ing Altep­kin and the Dalai Lama’s links to the UNPO, we review Karl Von Hab­s­burg’s [37] lead­er­ship role in that orga­ni­za­tion. Active in Ukraine as well, Karl Von Hab­s­burg is car­ry­ing on the dynas­tic tra­di­tion, with the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire hav­ing estab­lished the polit­i­cal tem­plate [38] for the OUN/B fas­cists of Gali­cia (West­ern Ukraine.)

With Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-linked Islamists and Pan-Turk­ists work­ing with the Dalai Lama, ele­ments of CIA and the Hab­s­burg milieu, we are in a posi­tion to see how high­ly diverse, seem­ing­ly con­tra­dic­to­ry polit­i­cal aggre­gates are being deployed in con­cert in what we call “The Earth Island Boo­gie.”

We con­clude by not­ing that Paula Dobri­an­sky [39]–deeply involved with the OUN/B milieu of her father Lev [40]–ran the Tibet desk for George W. Bush’s State Depart­ment (after hav­ing been on Ronald Rea­gan’s Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil.)

Pro­gram High­lights Include:

1. Two dif­fer­ent types of fas­cist cadres are oper­at­ing in tan­dem in Ukraine–in addi­tion to the OUN/B heirs such as the Pravy Sek­tor for­ma­tions, Chechen fight­ers (almost cer­tain­ly allied with some ele­ment of Mus­lim Broth­er­hood) are now fight­ing along­side them and under the Pravy Sek­tor admin­is­tra­tive com­mand.

The Chechen for­ma­tions are described as “broth­ers” of the Islam­ic State.

The Boston Marathon bomb­ing [22] appears to have been blow­back from a covert oper­a­tion [41] back­ing jihadists in the Cau­ca­sus [42].

“Ukraine Merges Nazis and Islamists” by Robert Par­ry; Con­sor­tium News; 7/7/2015. [12]

In a curi­ous­ly upbeat account, The New York Times reports that Islam­ic mil­i­tants have joined with Ukraine’s far-right and neo-Nazi bat­tal­ions to fight eth­nic Russ­ian rebels in east­ern Ukraine. It appears that no com­bi­na­tion of vio­lent extrem­ists is too wretched to cel­e­brate as long as they’re killing Russ-kies.

The arti­cle [43] by Andrew E. Kramer reports that there are now three Islam­ic bat­tal­ions “deployed to the hottest zones,” such as around the port city of Mar­i­upol. One of the bat­tal­ions is head­ed by a for­mer Chechen war­lord who goes by the name “Mus­lim,” Kramer wrote, adding:

“The Chechen com­mands the Sheikh Mansur group, named for an 18th-cen­tu­ry Chechen resis­tance fig­ure. It is sub­or­di­nate to the nation­al­ist Right Sec­tor, a Ukrain­ian mili­tia. … Right Sec­tor … formed dur­ing last year’s street protests in Kiev from a half-dozen fringe Ukrain­ian nation­al­ist groups like White Ham­mer and the Tri­dent of Stepan Ban­dera [44].

“Anoth­er, the Azov  [45]group, is open­ly neo-Nazi, using the ‘Wolf’s Hook’ [46] sym­bol asso­ci­at­ed with the [Nazi] SS. With­out address­ing the issue of the Nazi sym­bol, the Chechen said he got along well with the nation­al­ists because, like him, they loved their home­land and hat­ed the Rus­sians.”

As casu­al­ly as Kramer acknowl­edges the key front-line role of neo-Nazis and white suprema­cists fight­ing for the U.S.-backed Kiev regime, his arti­cle does mark an aber­ra­tion for the Times and the rest of the main­stream U.S. news media, which usu­al­ly dis­miss any men­tion of this Nazi taint as “Russ­ian pro­pa­gan­da.” . . .

. . . . Now, the Kiev regime has added to those “forces of civ­i­liza­tion” — resist­ing the Russ-kie bar­bar­ians — Islam­ic mil­i­tants with ties to ter­ror­ism. Last Sep­tem­ber, Marcin Mamon, a reporter for the Inter­cept, reached [47] a van­guard group of these Islam­ic fight­ers in Ukraine through the help of his “con­tact in Turkey with the Islam­ic State [who] had told me his ‘broth­ers’ were in Ukraine, and I could trust them.”

The new Times arti­cle avoids delv­ing into the ter­ror­ist con­nec­tions of these Islamist fight­ers. . . .

2. We present more about the Chechen/Islamic State fight­ers in Ukraine. Note that, as dis­cussed in FTR #830 [48], the Islam­ic State appears to be anoth­er branch of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. Note, also, that Geor­gia also was har­bor­ing Islamist fight­ers cam­paign­ing against Rus­sia. We high­light­ed [42] this in FTR #710. [49]

The Dai­ly Beast has a new piece on the Chechen Jihadists fight­ing in Ukraine after fight­ing for ISIS and how, with talk of mak­ing Right Sec­tor part of the SBU, there’s grow­ing spec­u­la­tion that a Chechen ‘vol­un­teer bat­tal­ion’ is just a mat­ter of time:

“Chechen Jihadists Join Ukraine’s Fight­ers” by Anna Nemtso­va  ; The Dai­ly Beast [13]; 9/04/2015. [13]

Chechen Jihadis Leave Syr­ia, Join the Fight in Ukraine

A bat­tal­ion of fight­ers from the Cau­ca­sus is deployed on Kiev’s side in the Ukraine war. But their pres­ence may do more harm than good.

Just an hour’s dri­ve from this city under siege, at an old resort on the Azov Sea that’s now a mil­i­tary base, mil­i­tants from Chechnya—veterans of the jihad in their own lands and, more recent­ly, in Syr­ia [50]—now serve in what’s called the Sheikh Mansur Bat­tal­ion. Some of them say they have trained, at least, in the Mid­dle East with fight­ers for the so-called Islam­ic State, or ISIS [51].

Among the irreg­u­lar forces who’ve enlist­ed in the fight against the Russ­ian-backed sep­a­ratists in the Don­bas region of east­ern Ukraine [52], few are more con­tro­ver­sial or more dan­ger­ous to the cred­i­bil­ity of the cause they say they want to serve. Russ­ian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin would love to por­tray the fight­ers he sup­ports as cru­saders against wild-eyed jihadists rather than the gov­ern­ment in Ukraine that wants to inte­grate the coun­try more close­ly with West­ern Europe.

Yet many Ukrain­ian patri­ots, des­per­ate to gain an edge in the fight against the Russ­ian-backed forces, are will­ing to accept the Chechen mil­i­tants on their side.

Over the past year, dozens of Chechen fight­ers have come across Ukraine’s bor­der, some legal­ly, some ille­gally, and con­nected in Don­bas with the Right Sec­tor, a far-right-wing mili­tia. The two groups, with two bat­tal­ions, have lit­tle in com­mon, but they share an ene­my and they share this base.

The Dai­ly Beast spoke with the Chechen mil­i­tants about their pos­si­ble sup­port for the Islam­ic State and its affil­i­ate in the North­ern Cau­ca­sus region of Rus­sia, which is now called the Islam­ic State Cau­ca­sus Emi­rate and is labeled a ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion by both Rus­sia and the Unit­ed States.

The Chechen fight­ers said they were moti­vated by a chance to fight in Ukraine against the Rus­sians, whom they called “occu­piers of our coun­try, Ichk­eriya,” anoth­er term for Chech­nya.

Indeed, they were upset that Ukrain­ian author­i­ties did not allow more Chechen mil­i­tants to move to Ukraine from the Mid­dle East and the moun­tains of the Cau­ca­sus. The Sheikh Mansur Bat­tal­ion, found­ed in Ukraine in Octo­ber 2014, “needs re-enforce­ment,” they said.

The man the Chechens defer to as their “emir,” or leader, is called “Mus­lim,” a com­mon fore­name in the Cau­ca­sus. He talked about how he per­son­ally crossed the Ukrain­ian bor­der last year: “It took me two days to walk across Ukraine’s bor­der, and the Ukrain­ian bor­der con­trol shot at me,” he said. He lives on this mil­i­tary base here open­ly enough but is frus­trated that more of his recruits can’t get through. “Three of our guys came here from Syr­ia, 15 more are wait­ing in Turkey,” he told The Dai­ly Beast. “They want to take my path, join our bat­tal­ion here right now, but the Ukrain­ian bor­der patrol is not let­ting them in.”

Mus­lim pulled out a piece of paper with a name of anoth­er Chechen head­ing to join the bat­tal­ion. The hand­writ­ten note said that Amayev Khavadzhi was detained on Sep­tem­ber 4, 2014, in Greece and now could be deport­ed to Rus­sia. (Khayadzhi’s lawyer in Greece told The Dai­ly Beast on the phone that there was a chance that his defen­dant would be trans­ferred to his fam­ily in France instead.)

“Two more of our friends have been detained, and are threat­ened with depor­ta­tion to Rus­sia, where they get locked up for life or Kady­rov kills them,” Mus­lim told The Dai­ly Beast, refer­ring to the pro-Putin strong­man of Chech­nya, Ramzan Kady­rov.

The com­man­der point­ed at a young beard­ed mil­i­tant next to him: “Mansur came here from Syr­ia,” Mus­lim said. “He used ISIS as a train­ing base to improve his fight­ing skills.” Mansur stretched out his right hand, which was dis­fig­ured, he said, by a bul­let wound. Two more bul­lets were still stuck in his back, he said.

“No pho­tographs,” Mansur shook his head when a jour­nal­ist tried to take his pic­ture. Not even of his hand, not even from the back: “My reli­gion does not allow that.”

...

Mansur said he did not have to run across the bor­der under a hail of of bul­lets like Mus­lim. “We man­aged to reach an agree­ment with the Ukraini­ans,” he said.

The arrival of pro-Ukrain­ian Chechen fight­ers from abroad helped relieve some of the immi­gra­tion prob­lems of Chechens already liv­ing in Ukraine, the mil­i­tants explained.

Kady­rov had sent some of his Chechens to fight on the Russ­ian side of the con­flict last year, said Mus­lim, and as a result “there was a tem­po­rary dan­ger that Chechen fam­i­lies might be deport­ed from Ukraine… But as soon as we start­ed com­ing here last August, no Chechen in Ukraine had rea­sons to com­plain.”

Were for­mer fight­ers com­ing to Ukraine from Syr­ia because they were dis­ap­pointed (or appalled) by the ide­ol­ogy of ISIS?

“We have been fight­ing against Rus­sia for over 400 years; today they [the Rus­sians] blow up and burn our broth­ers alive, togeth­er with chil­dren, so here in Ukraine we con­tinue to fight our war,” the com­man­der said. Many in Ukraine remem­bered the Chechen war of the mid-1990s as a war for inde­pen­dence, which briefly was giv­en, then tak­en away.

Since then the war in the Cau­ca­sus has mor­phed into ter­ror­ism, killing about 1,000 civil­ians, many of them chil­dren, in a series of ter­ror attacks. And what­ever the com­mon ene­my, that pos­es a seri­ous prob­lem for Kiev if it embraces such fight­ers.

“The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment should be aware that Islam­ic rad­i­cals fight against democ­racy,” says Var­vara Pakhomenko, an expert at the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group. “Today they unite with Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists against Rus­sians, tomor­row they will be fight­ing against lib­er­als.”

Pakhomenko says some­thing sim­i­lar hap­pened in Geor­gia in 2012 when the gov­ern­ment there found itself accused of coop­er­a­tion with Islam­ic rad­i­cals from Europe, Chech­nya, and the Pankisi Gorge, an eth­nic Chechen region of Geor­gia.

For inter­na­tional observers cov­er­ing ter­ror­ism in Rus­sia and Cau­ca­sus in the past 15 years, the pres­ence of Islam­ic rad­i­cals in Ukraine sounds “dis­as­trous,” mon­i­tors from the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group told The Dai­ly Beast.

But many ordi­nary Ukraini­ans and offi­cials in Mar­i­upol sup­port the idea of retain­ing more Chechen mili­tia fight­ers. “They are fear­less fight­ers, ready to die for us, we love them, any­body who would pro­tect us from death,” said Gali­na Odnorog, a vol­un­teer sup­ply­ing equip­ment, water, food, and oth­er items to bat­tal­ions told The Dai­ly Beast. The pre­vi­ous night Ukrain­ian forces report­ed six dead Ukrain­ian sol­diers and over a dozen wound­ed.

“ISIS, terrorists—anybody is bet­ter than our lame lead­ers,” says local leg­isla­tive coun­cil deputy Alexan­der Yaroshenko. “I feel more com­fort­able around Mus­lim and his guys than with our may­or or gov­er­nor.”

The Right Sec­tor bat­tal­ion that coop­er­ates with the Chechen mil­i­tants is a law unto itself, often out of con­trol, and tend­ing to incor­po­rate any­one it wants into its ranks. In July two peo­ple were killed and eight wound­ed in a gun and grenade bat­tle between police and Right Sec­tor mili­tia in west­ern Ukraine. On Mon­day, Right Sec­tor mil­i­tants trig­gered street bat­tles in the cen­ter of Kiev that left three police­men dead and over 130 wound­ed.

Yet the gov­ern­ment in Kiev has been con­sid­er­ing the trans­fer of the Right Sec­tor into a spe­cial unit of the SBU, Ukraine’s secu­rity ser­vice, which has made many peo­ple won­der whether the Chechen mili­tia will be join­ing the gov­ern­ment units as well. So far, nei­ther the Right Sec­tor bat­tal­ion nor the Chechen bat­tal­ion have been reg­is­tered with offi­cial forces.

In Ukraine, which is los­ing dozens of sol­diers and civil­ians every week, many things could spin out of con­trol but “it would be unimag­in­able to allow for­mer or cur­rent ISIS fight­ers to join any gov­ern­ment-con­trolled or –spon­sored mil­i­tary unit,” says Paul Quinn-Judge, senior advis­er for Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group in Rus­sia and Ukraine. “It would be polit­i­cally dis­as­trous for the Poroshenko admin­is­tra­tion: No West­ern gov­ern­ment in its right mind would accept this, and it would be an enor­mous pro­pa­ganda gift for the Krem­lin. The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment would be bet­ter served by pub­li­ciz­ing their deci­sions to turn ISIS vets back at the bor­der.”

The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment should be aware that Islam­ic rad­i­cals fight against democ­racy,” says Var­vara Pakhomenko, an expert at the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group. “Today they unite with Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists against Rus­sians, tomor­row they will be fight­ing against lib­er­als.”

3. Once again, we vis­it the sub­ject of the Earth Island [9] or “World Island” as it is some­times called. Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, Chi­na and India, that stretch of land: com­pris­es most of the world’s land mass; con­tains most of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and most of the world’s nat­ur­al resources (includ­ing oil and nat­ur­al gas.) Geopoliti­cians have long seen con­trol­ling that land mass as the key to world dom­i­na­tion.  The pop­u­la­tion that occu­pies the mid­dle of that stretch of geog­ra­phy is large­ly Mus­lim.

Uti­liz­ing that Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion to con­trol the resources of the Earth Island is a strategem [10] that has been in effect [11] in the West for a cen­tu­ry.

Now, we are see­ing the Uighurs [14], a Turko­phone [15]Mus­lim group [16] in the petro­le­um and nat­ur­al-resources-rich Xin­jiang province of Chi­na, receiv­ing sup­port from the Pan-Turk­ist/­fas­cist [17]  Nation­al Action Par­ty [18] and its youth wing [19]the Grey Wolves [20].

As Rus­sia is being boxed in by renascent Ukrain­ian fas­cism in the East [21] and Cau­casian Islamist ter­ror in the Cau­ca­sus [22], we must won­der if the NAP/Grey Wolf  [23]PR offen­sive against Chi­na and on behalf of the Uighurs is part of an ongo­ing [24] NATO/U.S./Underground Reich effort against the core of the Earth Island, Rus­sia and Chi­na.

Are we see­ing an effort at break­ing [53] those coun­tries apart?  Are the Islamist and Pan-Turk­ist move­ments align­ing in fur­ther­ing this goal?

“Anti-Chi­na Sen­ti­ment Is Sud­den­ly Sweep­ing Over Turkey” by Bar­bara Tasch [Busi­ness Insid­er]; Yahoo News; 7/21/2015. [54]

Protests. Burnt flags. Attacks on tourists and restau­rants. Ram­pant racism on social media.

Anti-Chi­na sen­ti­ment has been reach­ing new heights in Turkey over the last few weeks, as Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Recep Tayyip Erdo­gan is set to make an offi­cial state vis­it to Chi­na lat­er this month.

It start­ed at the begin­ning of July, when a Chi­nese restau­rant in Istan­bul was attacked by five men with sticks and stones.

“We do not want a Chi­nese restau­rant here, get out of our town!” the men were heard say­ing, accord­ing to Al-Mon­i­tor [55].

A few days lat­er, a Kore­an tourist mis­tak­en to be Chi­nese was attacked by a group of ultra-nation­al­ists in the cap­i­tal. On the same day in Balike­sir, pro­test­ers hung an effi­gy of Mao Zedong. And a few days lat­er, the protests spread again to Istan­bul, where Chi­nese tourists were attacked and harassed, accord­ing to CNN [56].

The protests gath­ered momen­tum a few weeks ago, when reports emerged that Uighurs — who share eth­nic­i­ty and have close cul­tur­al ties with Turk­ish Mus­lims — who were liv­ing in west­ern regions of Chi­na had alleged­ly not been allowed to fast dur­ing the holy month of Ramadan [57]. Those alle­ga­tions have been denied by the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment. Uighurs make up around 45% of the Xin­jiang autonomous region of Chi­na.

On July 9, a group of about 200 men who are believed to be part of the East Turkestan Sol­i­dar­i­ty Group attacked the Thai embassy [58] in Istan­bul with rocks and wood­en planks. The attack fol­lowed the repa­tri­a­tion of over 100 Uighurs [59] back to Chi­na by the Thai gov­ern­ment.

In a recent inter­view, Devle­ty Bahceli, chair­man of the far-right Nation­al­ist Action Par­ty (MHP) in Turkey, whose mem­bers have been accused of assault­ing tourists, said they are “sen­si­tive to injus­tices in Chi­na.”

“Our nation­al­ist youth is sen­si­tive to injus­tices in Chi­na. They should have the free­dom to exer­cise their demo­c­ra­t­ic rights. These are young kids. They may have been pro­voked. Plus, how are you going to dif­fer­en­ti­ate between Kore­an and Chi­nese? They both have slant­ed eyes. Does it real­ly mat­ter?” he said, accord­ing to Al-Mon­i­tor [55]

Those racist com­ments caused uproar in nation­al and inter­na­tion­al media. And fol­low­ing grow­ing social pres­sure, Nation­al­ist Action Par­ty mem­bers told Al-Mon­i­tor [55] that they view all tourists as their guests. The head of the Grey Wolves, the youth wing of the MHP in Istan­bul, told the BBC [57] that the attacks took place between pro­test­ers and the police — and that no tourists were harmed.

 “The safe­ty of every tourist com­ing to our coun­try is our respon­si­bil­i­ty. We can’t tol­er­ate any sort of vio­lence,” he said.

Amid the mul­ti­ply­ing attacks, the Chi­nese embassy issued a trav­el warn­ing to its cit­i­zens and told them to avoid going out alone, get­ting close to protests, or tak­ing pic­tures of them. The Chi­nese Phil­har­mon­ic Orches­tra also can­celed its August con­cert in Istan­bul, and local police announced it would pro­vide extra secu­ri­ty for an exhi­bi­tion by a Chi­nese artist. . . . .

4. Next, the pro­gram flesh­es out infor­ma­tion about the sep­a­ratist move­ment in Xin­jiang province, Chi­na. Note that both Islamist and non-theo­crat­ic Pan-Turk­ist ele­ments are involved in this move­ment.

Dol­lars for Ter­ror: The Unit­ed States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; Copy­right 2000; Algo­ra Press [SC]; ISBN 1–822941-06–6; p. 10. [25]

“Chi­na has not been spared. Xin­jiang (south­ern Chi­na), has a pop­u­la­tion that is 55% Uighur (a Turko­phone Sun­ni eth­nic group); it has been con­front­ed with Islamist vio­lence since the begin­ning of the 1990’s. Cre­at­ed in 1955, Xin­jiang (which means ‘new ter­ri­to­ry’) is one of the five autonomous areas of Chi­na and is the largest admin­is­tra­tive unit of the coun­try. The area is high­ly strate­gic at the geopo­lit­i­cal lev­el — Chi­nese nuclear tests and rock­et launch­es take place on the Lop Nor test grounds — as well as from an eco­nom­ic stand­point, since it abounds in nat­ur­al wealth (oil, gas, ura­ni­um, gold, etc.). Against this back­drop, attacks have pro­lif­er­at­ed by inde­pen­dence-seek­ing cliques, all preach­ing ‘Holy War.’ ”

5. “Some are act­ing in the name of Turk­ish iden­ti­ty, while oth­ers are fight­ing in the name of Allah (espe­cial­ly in the south­ern part of the region). As in the rest of Cen­tral Asia, in Xin­jiang we are wit­ness­ing the ris­ing influ­ence of Wah­habi groups and the increas­ing pros­e­lytism of preach­ers from Sau­di Ara­bia, Afghanistan and Pak­istan. Tra­di­tion­al­ly allied with pop­u­lar Chi­na, Pak­istan is nev­er­the­less try­ing to extend its influ­ence to this part of Chi­na, using the Islamists as it did in Afghanistan. For this rea­son Bei­jing closed the road from Karako­rum, con­nect­ing Xin­jiang to Pak­istan, between 1992 and 1995. Since 1996, the fre­quen­cy of the inci­dents has sky­rock­et­ed. In Feb­ru­ary 1997, riots explod­ed in Yin­ing (a town of 300,000 inhab­i­tants locat­ed to the west of Urumqi, near the Kaza­kh bor­der). This vio­lence caused ten deaths, accord­ing to Chi­nese author­i­ties, and the Uighurs have count­ed more than a hun­dred vic­tims.”

(Idem.)

6. “Every week in 1998 saw a bomb­ing or an attack with auto­mat­ic weapons. The region’s hotels, air­ports and rail­way sta­tions are in a con­stant state of alert. In April, Chi­nese author­i­ties in the vicin­i­ty of Yin­ing seized 700 cas­es of ammu­ni­tion from Kaza­khstan. In Sep­tem­ber, the Sec­re­tary of the Xin­jiang Com­mu­nist Par­ty declared that ’19 train­ing camps, in which spe­cial­ists return­ing from Afghanistan edu­cate young recruits in the tech­niques of ter­ror­ism, with the assis­tance of the Tale­ban,’ were neu­tral­ized. In Jan­u­ary 1999, 29 activists impli­cat­ed in the Feb­ru­ary 1997 riots were arrest­ed. On Feb­ru­ary 12, vio­lent clash­es between the police and groups of Uighur mil­i­tants wound­ed sev­er­al dozen peo­ple in Urumqi. Two hun­dred peo­ple were arrest­ed. In ear­ly March, 10,000 addi­tion­al sol­diers arrived at Yin­ing to beef up secu­ri­ty, while in Bei­jing, the Uighur Islamist orga­ni­za­tions took cred­it for sev­er­al bomb attacks.”

(Ibid.; pp. 10–11.)

7. “This Asian test-bed is sup­port­ing the emer­gence of a new type of rad­i­cal­ism. Sun­ni-ite and ide­o­log­i­cal­ly con­ser­v­a­tive, it is supra­na­tion­al in its recruit­ment and in its ide­ol­o­gy. It does not emanate out of scis­sions in the great Islamists orga­ni­za­tions, but from a rad­i­cal­iza­tion of the Afghan Tale­bans, from their sanc­tu­ar­ies and their ties with small ter­ror­ist and mafia groups, mar­gin­al­ized and rad­i­cal­ized by repres­sion (as in Egypt and Alge­ria), in a con­text of eco­nom­ic and finan­cial glob­al­iza­tion, as well as from the cir­cu­la­tion of mil­i­tants who have lost their ter­ri­to­ries. The prin­ci­pal char­ac­ter­is­tic of these net­works (except in Cen­tral Asia and Egypt) is that they recruit, estab­lish their bases, and act at the mar­gins of the Arab-Mus­lim world. In addi­tion to the Egyp­tians, Pak­ista­nis, Sudanese, Yemenites, and Fil­ipinos, recent­ly there has been a wave of immi­gra­tion to Great Britain and the Unit­ed States. Oper­a­tions take place in Egypt, cer­tain­ly, in Alge­ria and Cen­tral Asia, but also in the east and the south of Africa, in Yemen, Bangladesh, New York, etc. The favorite ‘holy wars’ are Kash­mir, Afghanistan, Chech­nya, the Cau­ca­sus and, now, Chi­na.”

(Ibid.; p. 11.)

8. Note the role that Islamists play in the multi­na­tion­al cor­po­rate glob­al­iza­tion move­ment. They are work­ing in a fash­ion that dimin­ish­es nation­al con­trol and reg­u­la­tion and accen­tu­ates lais­sez-faire mar­ket dynam­ics. (“Lib­er­al­ism” in the con­text pre­sent­ed here means “free-mar­ket” rather than tra­di­tion­al Amer­i­can polit­i­cal lib­er­al­ism.)

“Tak­ing advan­tage of eco­nom­ic lib­er­al­iza­tion, many for­mer chiefs of the ‘holy war’ have now trans­mut­ed into busi­ness­men. They make up an ‘Islamo-busi­ness’ world that has colonies in var­i­ous sec­tors: Islam­ic finan­cial insti­tu­tions, Islam­ic gar­ment indus­tries, human­i­tar­i­an and benev­o­lent orga­ni­za­tions, pri­vate schools, and so on. As polit­i­cal sci­en­tist Olivi­er Roy says, ‘Today’s Islam­ic actors are work­ing for lib­er­al­ism and against state con­trol.’ They rep­re­sent a glob­al­iza­tion of Islam, deter­ri­to­ri­al­ized, in an approach that has been uncou­pled from the Mid­dle East. A strik­ing West­ern­iza­tion of Islamism is tak­ing place or, more pre­cise­ly, of the tra­di­tion­al­ly infra-state net­works; tribes, Koran schools, etc. are link­ing up with world­wide net­works that func­tion in an extreme­ly mod­ern way and out­side the con­trol of any State author­i­ty. This evo­lu­tion results from a his­to­ry that began long ago...”

(Idem.)

9. The broad­cast reviews the fact that the Dalai Lama has col­lab­o­rat­ed with Islamists from among the Uighur pop­u­la­tion of Xin­jiang province of Chi­na. (The Uighurs refer to Xin­jiang as East or East­ern Turkestan.) With Xin­jiang province being rich in petro­le­um, the Uighurs have had lit­tle trou­ble obtain­ing sup­port from for­eign intel­li­gence ser­vices. For addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about Uighur involve­ment with the Mus­lim Brotherhood/Al Qae­da milieu, see FTR#348 [29] as well as FTR#549 [30]It should be not­ed that we are a long way from deal­ing with “Bud­dhists” here!! The Dalai Lama’s milieu is part of a larg­er Under­ground Reich “vir­tu­al state.” It is also impor­tant to bear in mind that the milieu of which the Dalai Lama is a part appears to focus on Cen­tral Asia—that part of the “Earth Island” seen by geopoliti­cians as key to con­trol­ling that land mass and, as a con­se­quence, the world. Note that the Uighurs are count­ed by the Pan-Turk­ists as among the “out­side Turks” to be includ­ed in a “Greater Turkestan”.

“US & Ter­ror­ism in Xin­jiang” by B. Raman; From the web­site of the South Asia Analy­sis Group [an Indi­an intelligence/national secu­ri­ty think tank]; 7/2002. [28]

“India should have rea­sons to be con­cerned over the Dalai Lama’s hob­nob­bing with the pan- Islam­ic ele­ments in Xin­jiang. One can­not avoid sus­pect­ing that the influ­ence of these ele­ments must have been behind his par­tic­i­pa­tion in a con­fer­ence orga­nized in Chen­nai last year by some ele­ments, which have been act­ing as apol­o­gists for Gen. Per­vez Mushar­raf, the Pak­istani mil­i­tary dic­ta­tor, which was attend­ed by a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Huryi­at of J&K and a large num­ber of Pak­ista­nis, some of them retired Pak­istani mil­i­tary offi­cers. The Dalai Lama’s set-up sub­se­quent­ly denied or played down some of the con­tro­ver­sial remarks attrib­uted to him at the con­fer­ence. The Gov­ern­ment of India should con­sid­er con­vey­ing to the Dalai Lama its unhap­pi­ness and con­cern over his asso­ci­a­tion with pan-Islam­ic ele­ments in Xin­jiang.”

10. Note that the U.S. has main­tained a dou­ble stan­dard on Islamist and sep­a­ratist ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions. Those per­ceived as “pure­ly indige­nous” are not clas­si­fied as ter­ror­ist, and may be receiv­ing assis­tance from ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty that are at least nom­i­nal­ly Amer­i­can. It is Mr. Emory’s view that this ele­ment of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty is asso­ci­at­ed with the petro­le­um indus­try and, at a more pro­found lev­el, the Under­ground Reich. It appears that this same ele­ment (or relat­ed ele­ments) is at the epi­cen­ter of the drug-traf­fick­ing milieu with­in U.S. intel­li­gence. For lis­ten­ers who might find this dif­fi­cult to under­stand, con­sid­er the sit­u­a­tion vis a vis drug-traf­fick­ing. Some ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence are com­plic­it in the drug traf­fick­ing, while oth­er ele­ments (in con­junc­tion with law enforce­ment) are sin­cere­ly active in oppos­ing it. Not only are the ter­ror­ist and drug-traf­fick­ing sit­u­a­tions anal­o­gous, but, again, the drug-traf­fick­ing ele­ments are asso­ci­at­ed with the ter­ror­ist ele­ments. As researcher Peter Dale Scott has illus­trat­ed in his work [Drugs, Oil and War [60]], the terror/drug ele­ment is close­ly asso­ci­at­ed with the petro­le­um indus­try. This ele­ment of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty may well be part of the “Safari Club” milieu.

More on the Uighur involve­ment with Al Qae­da:

“10. The Islam­ic Move­ment of Uzbek­istan and the Abu Sayyaf of the south­ern Philip­pines have been des­ig­nat­ed as For­eign Ter­ror­ist Orga­ni­za­tions under the US law of 1996, but not the East­ern Turkestan Islam­ic Par­ty, though all the three are mem­bers of Osama bin Laden’s Inter­na­tion­al Islam­ic Front For Jehad Against the USA and Israel. In ini­ti­at­ing action, either for des­ig­na­tion as a For­eign Ter­ror­ist Orga­ni­za­tion or for action under the UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tion No, 1373 in respect of bank accounts, the US and the Euro­pean Union have focused essen­tial­ly on ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions, which are per­ceived by them as inter­na­tion­al in nature or which are seen as pos­ing a threat to their nation­als and inter­ests. Ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions viewed by them as pure­ly indige­nous have been exclud­ed. These mul­ti­ple yard­sticks have been used vis- a‑vis Chi­na as well as India.”

(Idem.)

11. Note that both the Islamist ele­ment of the Uighur inde­pen­dence move­ment and its more sec­u­lar Pan-Turk­ist allies have col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Dalai Lama.

“7. Uighurs were found fight­ing with al-Qae­da in Afghanistan. We are aware of cred­i­ble reports that some Uighurs who were trained by al-Qae­da have returned to Chi­na. . . .24. The sec­ond sim­i­lar­i­ty relates to the exter­nal caus­es of aggra­va­tion of the ter­ror­ist vio­lence in Xin­jiang. Just as in J & K, in Xin­jiang too, there are two dis­tinct terrorist/extremist move­ments- ‑one resort­ing to vio­lence on eth­nic grounds to assert the Uighur eth­nic iden­ti­ty against the per­ceived Han Chi­nese dom­i­na­tion and the oth­er using reli­gious and pan-Islam­ic argu­ments to jus­ti­fy vio­lence for the estab­lish­ment of an inde­pen­dent Islam­ic State. While the eth­nic sep­a­ratist ele­ments have been the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of sym­pa­thy and sup­port from the Dalai Lama’s set-up and the Tibetan dias­po­ra abroad, and the US, Tai­wanese and Turk­ish intel­li­gence agen­cies, the reli­gious fun­da­men­tal­ist ele­ments have been in receipt of sup­port from the Inter-Ser­vices Intel­li­gence (ISI)-backed jeha­di orga­ni­za­tions in Pak­istan, the Tal­iban and bin Laden’s Inter­na­tion­al Islam­ic Front For Jehad Against the USA and Israel.”

(Idem.)

12. Accord­ing to the Raman paper, the CIA had close con­nec­tions to Erkin Alptekin, a mem­ber of the board of the Dalai Lama foun­da­tion and a func­tionary of the move­ment to estab­lish Xin­jiang province of Chi­na as an inde­pen­dent (Mus­lim) Uighur state—East Turkestan. It should be not­ed that Alptekin is an oper­a­tive of the Pan-Turk­ist move­ment, which is dis­tinct from the Islamist ele­ment in the Uighur inde­pen­dence move­ment. The Pan-Turk­ist move­ment is dis­cussed at length in AFA#‘s 14 [18] and 21 [61], avail­able from Spit­fire.

“25. In the 1970s and the 1980s, the Cen­tral Intel­li­gence Agency (CIA) of the USA had built up a net­work of con­tacts with the Uighur sep­a­ratist ele­ments and some of those, who had in the past worked for the Munich-based Radio Lib­er­ty of the CIA such as Erkin Alptekin, chair­man of the Europe-based East­ern Turkestani Union and a close Uighur asso­ciate of the Dalai Lama, are now in the fore­front of the eth­nic sep­a­ratist move­ment. . . .”

(Idem.)

13. In addi­tion to his back­ground with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty—both close­ly con­nect­ed to U.S. intelligence—Erkin Alptekin is a founder and key mem­ber of the UNPO, about which we will have more to say below. Alptekin is also on the board of the Dalai Lama Foun­da­tion.

Excerpt from the list of the board of the Dalai Lama Foun­da­tion. [62]

“ERKIN ALPTEKIN is one of the fore­most human rights advo­cates for the Uighur peo­ple of East­ern Turkestan, also known as the Xin­jiang Autonomous Region of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Chi­na. Mr. Alptekin was employed by Radio Free Europe/Radio Lib­er­ty from 1971 to 1994. He is one of the founders of the Unrep­re­sent­ed Nations and Peo­ple’s Orga­ni­za­tion (UNPO), and cur­rent­ly serves as its gen­er­al sec­re­tary.”

14. Anoth­er board mem­ber of the Dalai Lama Foun­da­tion is a mem­ber of the UNPO.

“MICHAEL VAN WALT cur­rent­ly serves as Exec­u­tive Pres­i­dent of the Peace Action Coun­cil, and Legal Advi­sor to the Office of H.H. The Dalai Lama. From 1991 to 1998 Dr. Van Walt was Gen­er­al Sec­re­tary of UNPO, the Unrep­re­sent­ed Nations and Peo­ples Orga­ni­za­tion. Dr. Van Walt holds law degrees from Europe and Amer­i­ca, and is cur­rent­ly Adjunct Pro­fes­sor of Inter­na­tion­al Law, Gold­en Gate Uni­ver­si­ty School of Law, San Fran­cis­co.”

(Idem.)

15a. With the Dalai Lama and his milieu, we appear to be look­ing at man­i­fes­ta­tions of the Under­ground Reich as a “vir­tu­al state”—a state with­out for­mal geo­graph­i­cal bor­ders. We should also note that Cen­tral Asia—the area that is the focal point of the Dalai Lama’s and UNPO’s sup­port for Uighur sep­a­ratist ele­ments was viewed by geopoliti­cians as crit­i­cal for main­tain­ing con­trol of the Earth Island [63].

Entry for Karl von Hab­s­burg [37]

“The eldest son and heir of the dynasty is Karl (Kar­l’s web­site), who lives in Aus­tria and has served in the Aus­tri­an army and was a mem­ber of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment, like his father, from 1996–1999. [Empha­sis added.] He has worked hard to keep the fam­i­ly in the pub­lic lime­light, even host­ing a pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion game show. He works qui­et­ly to change the Aus­tri­an laws of 1919 that for­bid the Hab­s­burgs from hold­ing any polit­i­cal office and has often been men­tioned as a pos­si­ble Chan­cel­lor of the Aus­tri­an Repub­lic. At this time he is the Gen­eraldirek­tor of the UNPO (Unrep­re­sent­ed Nations and Peo­ples Orga­ni­za­tion). In 1993 Karl mar­ried Francesca Thyssen-Borne­misza who is well known in Euro­pean high soci­ety.”

15b. Note that, as dis­cussed in FTR #‘s 833 [64], 824 [65], Karl Von Hab­s­burg is active [66] in Ukraine today and his father, Otto Von Hab­s­burg, was very close [38] to Jaroslav Stet­sko, hav­ing served in a promi­nent posi­tion with Stet­sko’s Euro­pean Free­dom Coun­cil. The gen­e­sis of the mil­i­tant fas­cism of Gali­cia (West­ern Ukraine) lies with the 1848 Spring of Nations imple­ment­ed by the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire.

16. Recap­ping a point of dis­cus­sion from FTR #842 [34], we fur­ther devel­op the nature of Tibetan Bud­dhism, cer­tain sim­i­lar­i­ties with Nazi phi­los­o­phy and occult beliefs, and how this played into the devel­op­ment of the Dalai Lama’s [35] oper­a­tional links to some tru­ly “inter­est­ing” [67] ele­ments.

The Hitler Lega­cy by Peter Lev­en­da; IBIS Press [HC]; Copy­right 2014 by Peter Lev­en­da; ISBN 978–0‑89254–210‑9; pp. 244–245. [33]

. . . . Both Hitler and the Dalai Lama were sec­u­lar rulers of their respec­tive coun­tries. Both had been the spir­i­tu­al rulers of their respec­tive coun­tries. Both had been the spir­i­tu­al rulers of their peo­ples, as well. Both revered the swasti­ka as a sym­bol of their iden­ti­ty. And both were fight­ing Com­mu­nism: Hitler against Rus­sia, and the Dalai Lama against Chi­na. And just as Nazi offi­cers were incor­po­rat­ed into the US and British intel­li­gence oper­a­tions against Rus­sia, so were Tibetan polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary lead­ers incor­po­rat­ed into Amer­i­can intel­li­gence and para­mil­i­tary oper­a­tions against Chi­na. The fol­low­ers of both Hitler and the Dalai Lama were (and are) moved by ecsta­t­ic wor­ship of their lead­ers and dreams of a par­a­disi­a­cal future. . . .

. . . . This might have been con­so­nant with an eso­teric tra­di­tion in Tibet, enshrined in the sem­i­nal work of Tibetan Bud­dhism, the Kalachakra Tantra. In this work, men­tion is made of the Kal­ki: a kind of God-King that will storm out of Shamb­ha­la (the secret, hid­den king­dom in the Himalayas made famous in the film Shangri-La) and put to waste all non-Bud­dhists, in a jihad wor­thy the most insane fan­tasies of frus­trat­ed ter­ror­ists every­where. The Dalai Lama is known to be fas­ci­nat­ed with the machin­ery of war, as he him­self men­tioned dur­ing the New York Times inter­view above-ref­er­enced.

It would be a stretch to accuse the Tibetans of the same type of war crimes of which the Nazis have been charged. There is no indi­ca­tion of geno­cide or “eth­nic cleans­ing” as a result of Tibetan poli­cies, for instance. How­ev­er, if we sub­tract geno­cide from the polit­i­cal incli­na­tions of both the Nazis and Tibetans as rep­re­sent­ed by the Dalai Lama, we are left with the uneasy feel­ing that there was much they had in common.Both the Nazis and the Tibetan Bud­dhists rep­re­sent reli­gions that are non-Abra­ham­ic in nature. The Nazis embraced a kind of neo-pagan­ism as their spir­i­tu­al resource, and with it a rejec­tion of the eth­i­cal and moral ideals of Judaism, Chris­tian­i­ty and Islam.

It should be not­ed, how­ev­er, that the Kalachakra Tantra–which forms the back­bone of the type of Bud­dhism pro­mul­gat­ed by the Dalai Lama–includes sim­i­lar ideas. there is a patent rejec­tion of non-Bud­dhist reli­gions and the promise of the appear­ance of the Kal­ki: an avatar of Vish­nu and the last ruler of the Kali Yuga (the dark age in which we present­ly live). Kal­ki was asso­ci­at­ed with Hitler by Miguel Ser­ra­no, and by the Indi­an nation­al­ist leader Sub­has Chan­dra Bose, among oth­ers. The Kal­ki would come out of his myth­i­cal king­dom of Shamb­ha­la at some point in the future and cleanse the world of non-Bud­dhists in a major, apoc­a­lyp­tic-style con­fla­gra­tion. This seems a tri­fle incon­sis­tent with the con­cept of “mer­cy.” The Dalai Lama is con­sid­ered to be an incar­na­tion of Akalovites­vara, the Indi­an God of Mer­cy and Com­pas­sion; per­haps some­thing is lost in the trans­la­tion.

We do not see the Dalai Lama sit­ting down and smil­ing benign­ly with Com­mu­nists. We do see him embrac­ing Nazis. One can imag­ine that the Sea of Com­pas­sion that is the Dalai Lama has man­aged to bestow mer­cy on even these unre­pen­tant war crim­i­nals and fear-mon­gers, and per­haps that is the les­son he wish­es to teach us; but that is not a les­son he has the moral right to teach. . . .

17. Shift­ing focus from the Mid­dle East to Asia, the Cold war saw the Amer­i­can adap­ta­tion of yet anoth­er Third Reich man­i­fes­ta­tion of “weaponized reli­gion.” Hav­ing sent an SS expe­di­tion to Tibet in 1938, the Third Reich may well have been explor­ing a poten­tial out­post to be used for their con­quest of the “Earth Island,” in addi­tion to indulging their anthro­po­log­i­cal fan­tasies about Tibet being the fount of the “Aryan Race.”

The Hitler Lega­cy by Peter Lev­en­da; IBIS Press [HC]; Copy­right 2014 by Peter Lev­en­da; ISBN 978–0‑89254–210‑9; pp. 239–240. [33]

One expe­di­tion mount­ed by the SS-Ahnenerbe, and with the spe­cif­ic bless­ing of Hein­rich Himm­ler, ws the 1938 SS-Tibet Expe­di­tion led by Ernst Schafer and includ­ing the anthro­pol­o­gist Bruno Beger among the expe­di­tion mem­bers. While the Dalai Lama was only three years old at the time of this expe­di­tion, the Panchen Lama was avail­able to greet the Nazis to the Himalayan king­dom and to pro­vide them with texts (includ­ing the 108-vol­ume Tibetan scrip­ture, the Kangjur), ani­mal and plant spec­i­mens, and pho­to­graph­ic footage to take back with them. In addi­tion, Beger con­duct­ed ethno­graph­ic and anthro­po­met­ric research among the Tibetans, mea­sur­ing their skulls with calipers, for instance. Pho­tographs of this expe­di­tion are still extent and exam­ples of it are found in the pho­to­graph­ic sec­tion of this book, includ­ing a famous pho­to of Beger mea­sur­ing the skull of a smil­ing Tibetan maid­en. . . .

. . . . by the time the SS-Tibet Expe­di­tion arrived back in Ger­many, the Sec­ond World War was just begin­ning. Bruno Beger–the anthro­pol­o­gist with the calipers–found him­self gain­ful­ly employed in build­ing an ethno­graph­ic muse­um of the human race, more­over one which would demon­strate the supe­ri­or­i­ty of the Aryan over the Semit­ic peo­ples. In order to do this, he need­ed a rep­re­sen­ta­tive sam­pling of human skulls for his col­lec­tion.

Eighty per­sons were mur­dered at Natzweil­er-Struthof con­cen­tra­tion camp to sat­is­fy this require­ment.

After the war, Beger was denaz­i­fied. While he was con­vict­ed of the mur­der of more than eighty indi­vid­u­als for the express pur­pose of build­ing his skull col­lec­tion, he nev­er served a day in prison. In fact, he remained a close friend of the Dalai Lama all his life, just as his old SS col­league Hein­rich Har­rer. . . .

18. After Chi­na occu­pied Tibet, that coun­try’s leader–the Dalai Lama [35]–became yet anoth­er ally in the Cold War. The CIA pur­sued alliance [67] with the Dalai Lama’s forces, appar­ent­ly employ­ing SS offi­cer Hein­rich Har­rer as an agent. (Har­rer was the Dalai Lama’s tutor and close per­son­al friend.)

The Hitler Lega­cy by Peter Lev­en­da; IBIS Press [HC]; Copy­right 2014 by Peter Lev­en­da; ISBN 978–0‑89254–210‑9; pp. 236–237. [33]

Thus we have the strange tableau of an SS man and com­mit­ted Nazi in Lhasa, at the same time that his friend, the Dalai Lama, is offi­cial­ly in con­tact with the US gov­ern­ment con­cern­ing the Chi­nese sit­u­a­tion. What did Hein­rich Har­rer know of these nego­ti­a­tions? How much did the Dalai Lama him­self know at this time? Even more to the point, was Amer­i­can intelligence–in the form of the CIA and the State Department–aware of Har­rer’s pres­ence in Lhasa and the influ­ence he had over the king?

Har­rer would remain a close friend and ally of the Dalai Lama for the rest of his life. As a Nazi and a mem­ber of the SS as well as of the SA (the Sturm Abteilung or Storm Troop­ers), Har­rer would have been a devot­ed anti-com­mu­nist, and would have seen in the strug­gles of the Tibetan peo­ple against Chi­nese Com­mu­nism an echo of his ow coun­try’s fight against the Sovi­et Union. Har­rer, as some­one with a demon­strat­ed and inti­mate knowl­edge of the land­scape, cul­ture, lan­guages, and envi­ron­ment of north­ern India and Tibet would have been an excel­lent choice for Amer­i­can intel­li­gence as an asset to run oper­a­tions against the Chi­nese. After all, the CIA had hired the Gehlen Orga­ni­za­tion at the end of World War Two to run ops against the Rus­sians from east­ern Europe. Rein­hard Gehlen was a Nazi intel­li­gence offi­cer who bartered his way to free­dom from pros­e­cu­tion by offer­ing his ser­vices (and those of hun­dreds of his close per­son­al friends in the SS, Gestapo, and SD) as an anti-com­mu­nist fight­er against the Sovi­ets. It would have made per­fect sense to hire Nazis who had expe­ri­ence of Asia in the fight against Chi­nese-style Com­mu­nism.

In fact, as Thomas Laird reveals: “Only dur­ing the past ten years, State Depart­ment doc­u­ments have been declas­si­fied that show Har­rer may have been involved with sev­er­al covert oper­a­tions for the Amer­i­cans after he left Tibet. . . .”

The Office of the Under Sec­re­tary for Democ­ra­cy and Glob­al Affairs, head­ed by Dr. Paula J. Dobri­an­sky [68], coor­di­nates U.S. for­eign rela­tions on a vari­ety of glob­al issues, includ­ing democ­ra­cy, human rights, and labor; envi­ron­ment, oceans, health and sci­ence; pop­u­la­tion, refugees, and migra­tion; wom­en’s issues; and traf­fick­ing in per­sons and avian and pan­dem­ic influen­za.

Since her appoint­ment in 2001, Under Sec­re­tary Dobri­an­sky has also served con­cur­rent­ly as the Spe­cial Coor­di­na­tor for Tibetan Issues. In this capac­i­ty, she is the U.S. gov­ern­men­t’s point per­son on Tibet pol­i­cy mat­ters, includ­ing: sup­port for dia­logue between the Chi­nese and the Dalai Lama or his rep­re­sen­ta­tives; pro­mo­tion of human rights in Tibet; and efforts to pre­serve Tibet’s unique cul­tur­al, reli­gious and lin­guis­tic iden­ti­ty.

19b. Paula Dobri­an­sky is part of the OUN/B milieu. (Her father Lev Dobri­an­sky was chair­man of the U.C.C.A., the top OUN/B umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion in the Unit­ed States.)

. . . . Many sur­viv­ing OUN‑B mem­bers fled to West­ern Europe and the Unit­ed States – occa­sion­al­ly with CIA help – where they qui­et­ly forged polit­i­cal alliances with right-wing ele­ments. “You have to under­stand, we are an under­ground orga­ni­za­tion. We have spent years qui­et­ly pen­e­trat­ing posi­tions of influ­ence,” one mem­ber told jour­nal­ist Russ Bel­lant, who doc­u­ment­ed the group’s resur­gence in the Unit­ed States in his 1988 book, “Old Nazis, New Right, and the Repub­li­can Par­ty.”In Wash­ing­ton, the OUN‑B recon­sti­tut­ed under the ban­ner of the Ukrain­ian Con­gress Com­mit­tee of Amer­i­ca (UCCA), an umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion com­prised of “com­plete OUN‑B fronts,” accord­ing to Bel­lant. By the mid-1980’s, the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion was hon­ey­combed with UCCA mem­bers, with the group’s chair­man Lev Dobri­an­sky [69], serv­ing as ambas­sador to the Bahamas, and his daugh­ter, Paula, sit­ting on the Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil. Rea­gan per­son­al­ly wel­comed Stet­sko, the Ban­derist leader who over­saw the mas­sacre of 7000 Jews in Lviv, into the White House in 1983.

“Your strug­gle is our strug­gle,” Rea­gan told the for­mer Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tor. “Your dream is our dream.” . . .
