[6]COMMENT: The latest jihadi attack in Brussels reminds us of a poem by Robinson Jeffers–“Be Angry at the Sun.”

That public men publish falsehoods
Is nothing new. That America must accept
Like the historical republics corruption and empire
Has been known for years.

Be angry at the sun for setting
If these things anger you. Watch the wheel slope and turn,
They are all bound on the wheel, these people, those warriors.
This republic, Europe, Asia.

Observe them gesticulating,
Observe them going down. The gang serves lies, the passionate
Man plays his part; the cold passion for truth
Hunts in no pack.

You are not Catullus, you know,
To lampoon these crude sketches of Caesar. You are far
From Dante’s feet, but even farther from his dirty
Political hatreds.

Let boys want pleasure, and men
Struggle for power, and women perhaps for fame,
And the servile to serve a Leader and the dupes to be duped.
Yours is not theirs.


Muslim Brotherhood Coat of (ahem) Arms

In many recent programs, we have highlighted the use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamic fascists as proxy warriors and soldiers for corporatist economics in various parts of The Earth Island. (Among those are: FTR #’s 862 [8], 863 [9], 878 [10], 879 [11], 880 [12], 884 [13], 885 [14], 886 [15].) We are also presenting [16] a series of programs [17] detailing Fara Mansoor’s landmark research about the George H.W. Bush faction’s installation of the Shiite Islamic fundamentalist government in Iran.)

Once again, the world is “shocked, shocked” at the Brussels attacks, when–once again–the ongoing strategic use of Islamic fascists blows back on the West.  The frustration [18] of Operation Green Quest [18], which revealed the profound links [19] between the Bush/Grover Norquist/Karl Rove [20] milieu and the funding [21] of Muslim Brotherhood-linked terrorists [22] involved in the 9/11 attacks set the stage for other lethal blowback incidents from the use of Brotherhood proxies.  The downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 [23] and the Boston Marathon Bombing [24] appear to be among those blowback incidents.

The Syrian bloodbath stems from the use [25] of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda-linked combatants backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar by elements of CIA to remove the Assad regime in Syria. ISIS [12] is a direct outgrowth of the so-called Arab Spring and the Syrian covert “op.”

An examination of the Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium highlights the profound presence of that organization there, its infilatration of government and civil society and links between its leadership and the milieu [26] of the Bank al-Taqwa [27] and Youssef Nada [28]. Al-Taqwa cements the Nazi/Islamist [29] relationship that is at the heart of the power group we have analyzed.

Do not fail to note that the milieu of the Brussels bombers [30] may have been targeting nuclear power plants in that country and that ISIS may be looking to go nuclear.

1. “The Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium” by Steve Merley; Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch; 4/14/2008. [31]

… A 2002 report by the Intelligence Committee of the Belgian Parliament explained how the Brotherhood operates in Belgium:

“The State Security Service has been following the activities of the International Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium since 1982. The International Muslim Brotherhood has had a clandestine structure for nearly 20 years. The identity of the members is secret; they operate in the greatest discretion. They seek to spread their ideology within the Islamic community of Belgium and they aim in particular at the young people of the second and third generation of immigrants. In Belgium as in other European countries, they try to take control of the religious, social, and sports associations and establish themselves as privileged interlocutors of the national authorities in order to manage Islamic affairs. The Muslim Brotherhood assumes that the national authorities will be pressed more and more to select Muslim leaders for such management and, in this context, they try to insert within the representative bodies, individuals influenced by their ideology. With this purpose, they were very actively involved in the electoral process to carry out the election of the members of the chief body for the management of Islam in Belgium. Another aspect of this strategy is to cause or maintain tensions by positing that a Muslim or Islamic association is a victim of Western values, hence the affair over the Muslim headscarf in public schools. . . . .”

…. A January 2007 article posted on the Internet describes a Bassem Hatahet as a member of the FIOE [a Brotherhood affiliate in Belgium]. He is 43-years old and was born in Damascus, Syria, where he likely still has relatives. Various sources list a residential address for Mr. Hatahet in northwest central Brussels.

Security sources in Belgium describe Mr. Hatahet as the most important Muslim Brotherhood figure in Belgium, and a Bassem Hatahet was listed in a 1999 phonebook belonging to Youssef Nada, a self-described leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who was designated by the U.S. in 2002 as a terrorism financier. . . .

. . . . Far more successful have been the Belgian-based components of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), particularly the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations (FEMYSO), which have managed to achieve official status at the UN, as well as with the Council of Europe and the European Commission. In addition, the location of the FIOE national office in Brussels has resulted in elevating the status of the Belgian branch that recently reported becoming “very active.” Leading the FIOE office in Brussels is Bassem Hatahet, whose name appears on virtually all of the paperwork associated with the Muslim Brotherhood organizations in Belgium.

This would appear to confirm Mr. Hatahet’s role as the most important figure in the Belgian Brotherhood as reported by the Belgian security services. . . .

. . . . 4. The Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations (FEMYSO)

Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Brussels, FEMYSO is the youth and student division of FIOE and will be discussed later in this report. . . . .

  • Hadia Himmat is the former FEMYSO Vice President and likely the daughter of Ali Ghaleb Himmat, long-time head of the IGD and Mr. El- Zayat’s predecessor and close associate of Youssef Nada, the “foreign minister” for the International Muslim Brotherhood and also a former member of the IGD. . . .

[32]2. “Muslim Brotherhood Affiliation of Belgian Brotherhood Leader Confirmed;” Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch; 9/18/2012.  [33]

…The website of the Syrian National Council, the umbrella group representing the opposition to the regime of Syrian President Assad, confirms the Muslim Brotherhood affiliation of one of its members as first reported [34] by the GMBDW in 2008. The SNC website  identifies [35] Bassem Hatahet as a member if its “Muslim Brotherhood Alliance.” Mr. Hatahet was identified as a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium by a 2008 NEFA Foundation report [36] . . . .
