COMMENT: An element of the investigation undertaken in FTR #857  bears further scrutiny.
” . . . Founded as part of the Nordic white power movement in 1988, they [Sweden Democrats] have been forced to expel several members over allegations of racism and extremism. . . . “
An elected member of the Sweden Democrat party has been implicated in a plot to obtain large amounts of high explosives along with a man found to be in posession of Nazi paraphernalia.
It is against the background of the WikiLeaks/Lundstrom liaison that we may view some of the participants in MAUP. The largest university in Ukraine is controlled by the MAUP organization, an institutional disseminator of anti-Semitic doctrine. David Duke teaches at the institution. Former president Yuschenko  is on the advisory board, as was Leonid Kravchuk, another president of Ukraine.
In addition to David Duke, Joran Jermas, aka “Israel Shamir,”  is part of the MAUP constellation. Jermas/Shamir  is a top aide to Julian Assange and, along with his son Johannes Wahlstrom (a bird of the same political feather) is in charge of WikiLeaks’ operations for the Scandinavian countries, Russia and Belarus.
It was Joran Jermas who offered Julian Assange  the opportunity to host WikiLeaks on the Pirate Bay website, funded by Swedish fascist Carl Lundstrom. Lundstrom arranged a Scandinavian speaking tour for David Duke
An elected member of Sweden’s far-right Sweden Democrat party has been implicatedin a plot to obtain large amounts of high explosives with the potential for use in terror attacks.
The local politician, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was detained along with three other men over the weekend in the Swedish province of Halland.
The four suspects were all arrested as part of an investigation into the discovery of large quantities of dynamite in a house belonging to one of the men.
The politician was arrested by police as he attempted to leave the house in his car, in which detectives then discovered dynamite blasting caps in a plastic bag.
The caps are normally used to trigger larger quantities of dynamite and plastic explosive from a distance.
The man was subsequently released from custody, but is still subject to ongoing investigation by detectives. He claims that he was unaware of the presence of the caps in his car according to reports in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.
At the same time as police discovered the material they also arrested a 30-year-old man, who neighbours claim had been carrying out test explosions on ground behind the property.
It is understood that the second man confessed to use of the explosive in a police statement. Two other men were also detained by authorities as part of their investigations.
The 30-year-old man had previously been convicted for attacking a foreign-born neighbour with an axe and was found to be in possession of pictures of Hitler, German war memorabilia and Nazi SS flags by police who searched his home.
It is unclear whether or not the explosives and associated equipment was intended to be used in an attack, but police have not ruled it out.
“That we can only speculate on. We have nothing that points to such an attack at present, but are open to the possibility” said Tommy Nyman, a spokesperson for the Swedish Police force in the region.
SÄPO, the Swedish security service, have also begun an investigation into events.
“We have found signs that he had Nazi sympathies” added Nyman with regards to the 30-year-old suspect. “There are objects and symbols which you would link to ideological extremism.”
The politician is not himself suspected of possessing such extremist material, but it is understood the two men knew one another.
The Sweden Democrats immediately issued a statement to the press saying that the party member arrested by police has been relieved of office. Founded as part of the Nordic white power movement in 1988, they have been forced to expel several members over allegations of racism and extremism.
The party, who share a European Parliament group with UKIP and strongly oppose immigration, feminism and multiculturalism, are currently the third biggest in Sweden. Until the mid 1990s members would regularly wear military-style uniforms at meetings and two of their senior parliamentary deputies were involved in a drunken attack on the Swedish-Kurdish comedian Soren Ismael with a piece of scaffolding in 2010.
Recent elections have seen significant gains for right-wing populist parties in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark on a strongly anti-immigration and culturally nationalist platform.
Sweden has also seen an increase in attacks on Islamic and Jewish community centres, with some now subject to police protection.
ABSTRACT: In the wake of the Orange Revolution, Ukraine has witnessed a substantial growth in organized anti-Semitism. Central to this development is an organization, known as the Interregional Academy of Human Resources, better known by its Ukrainian acronym MAUP. It operates a well-connected political network that reaches the very top of the Ukrainian society. MAUP is the largest private university in Ukraine, with 57,000 students at 24 regional campuses. MAUP is connected to the KKK; David Duke is teaching courses in history and international relations at the university. Funded by Saudi Arabia, Libya and Iran, MAUP’s printing house publishes about 85% of the anti-Semitic literature in Ukraine. Until very recently, Ukrainian President Yushchenko and Foreign Minister Tarasiuk served on its board; former President Kravchuk still does. This paper is a study of anti-Semitism in Ukraine, of its intellectual roots, influence and strength. It traces the Soviet, Christian, German and racist political traditions and outlines the political ambitions of organized anti-Semitism in post-Orange Revolution Ukraine.
MAUP: A University of Hate
- MAUP is the main source of anti-Semitic agitation and propaganda in Ukraine. It organizes anti-Semitic meetings and conferences, regularly issues anti-Semitic statements and publishes two widely-distributed periodicals, Personnel and Personnel Plus, which frequently contain anti-Semitic articles.
- At the same time, MAUP is a bona fide university (its English name is the Interregional Academy for Personnel Management), with more than 50,000 students enrolled at campuses in various locations. Business, political science and agriculture are among the subjects taught.
- The anti-Semitic activities are directed by MAUP’s President, Georgy Tschokin, and a number of his colleagues. Tschokin is also the leader of the far-right Ukrainian Conservative Party.
- MAUP has revived the notorious blood libel. In March 2006, MAUP leaders led by Tschokin paid their respects at the grave of Andrei Yuschinsky, a Christian boy whose death in 1911 led to the false conviction of Mendel Beilis, a Jew, who was eventually acquitted. The charges were based upon the notorious accusation of Jewish ritual murder.
A MAUP publication alleged that Yuschinsky was “murdered by Jews with ritual purpose”. Tschokin is also campaigning for the Orthodox Church to canonise Yuschinsky.
- White supremacist David Duke has close links with MAUP: he “teaches” a course on history and international relations, has been awarded a doctorate for a thesis on Zionism and was a key participant in MAUP’s June 2005 conference on “Zionism: Threat to World Peace”. In October 2006, Duke addressed a MAUP audience on the subject of “Zionist” influence in the US media and signed copies of his book, “The Jewish Question Through the Eyes of an American.” Duke opened his speech by declaring: “The powers of globalism and Zionism are reaching out and they are trying to control the lives, the values, the culture and the foreign policy of every nation on earth”.
- MAUP runs a number of kiosks in Kiev which specialize in anti-Semitic literature, including one located across the street from the “Hillel” club for Jewish students. Titles on sale include: “The Zionist protocols: sources and results”, “Jewish syndrome” “Jews and economic life” and a book describing the infamous 1941 massacre of Jews at Babi Yar as “the third influential legend of the zhidovskoy catastrophe”.
- On November 22, 2005, Tschokin issued a statement of solidarity with Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s threat to wipe out Israel. The statement blended traditional Christian anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism: “We’d like to remind that the Living God Jesus Christ said to Jews two thousand years ago: ‘Your father is a devil!’…Israel, as known, means ‘Theologian’, and Zionism in 1975 was acknowledged by General Assembly of UNO as the form of racism and race discrimination, that, in the opinion of the absolute majority of modern Europeans, makes the most threat to modern civilization. Israel is the artificially created state (classic totalitarian type) which appeared on the political Earth map only in 1948, thanks to good will of UNO…Their end is known, and only the God’s true will rescue all of us. We are not afraid, as God always together with his children!”
- MAUP continues to boast of its ties with Iran. In March 2006, Tschokin received the Iranian Ambassador, Saed Ahmed Musavi Maleki, and negotiated a student exchange scheme between MAUP and Iranian universities. According to the MAUP website, the two men also discussed the building of a Ukrainian cultural center in Iran. MAUP representatives participated in an April 2006 conference held in Tehran under government sponsorship, entitled “Al Quds and the Protection of the Rights of the Palestinians”. There are widespread allegations that MAUP receives funding from the Iranian regime.
- MAUP continues to maintain close ties with individuals in the Ukrainian political establishment. Of special concern is the relationship between MAUP and Levko Lukyanenko, a former dissident and former Ukranian Ambassador to Canada, who is a prominent member of the political bloc led by former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. Lukyanenko has blamed the terrible Ukrainian famine of the 1930s on a “Satanic” government controlled by Jews and has falsely claimed, in attacking the former Soviet regime, that both Lenin and Stalin were Jewish.
- MAUP’s June 2005 anti-Zionist conference was attended by anti-Semites from all over the region, as well as Duke, French Holocaust denier Serge Thion and Israel Shamir, a Russian Jew who converted to Christianity and is notorious for publishing anti-Semitic essays on the internet. The Palestinian Authority representative in Ukraine, Walid Zakut, was also reported to have attended.
- MAUP’s anti-Semitic activities can be traced back to at least 2002. MAUP’s leading figures have been at the root of attempts to bar Jewish organizations in Ukraine and, more recently, a call to ban “The Tanya”, a classic work of Hassidic Jewish literature, on the grounds that it promotes racism against non-Jews.
