Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Fischer/Tropsch Process


Diagram of the Fischer-Tropsch process

COMMENT: Past programs [2] have dealt with the resurrection of the Fischer-Tropsch process [3], developed by I.G. Farben and the Third Reich to synthesize oil from coal, among other fuels. [4]

The Fischer-Tropsch process is being utilized in Qatar to synthesize fuel from natural gas. One of the many dark clouds on the horizon of the Middle East concerns the growing and pivotal role Qatar is playing in the dynamics evolving from the Arab Spring.

Awash with cash from its vast natural gas and fossil fuel resources, Qatar is financing Muslim Brotherhood-related activities, including the Al-Jazeera network [5]. Allied with the Axis in World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic fascist organization that has stayed true to its roots.

The rights for using Fischer-Tropsch process are under the control of the Bormann capital network (the economic component of a Third Reich gone underground) through the successor companies of I.G. Farben and the Hermann Schmitz trust. (See text excerpts below for detail on the Bormann network, I.G. Farben and the Schmitz trust.)

With Qatar subsidizing Islamic fascism through the Muslim Brotherhood and generating capital through the application of Nazi science, the possibility of that small but powerful nation as an Underground Reich subsidiary should be seriously considered.

Parenthetically, we note that the Sasol firm was founded in South Africa during the Apartheid era. Apartheid South Africa [7] was a direct outgrowth of the Third Reich.

In evaluating the information set forth here, it should be remembered that Qatar is deeply connected to corporate Germany [8], as well as the German foreign ministry. Corporate Germany is dominated by the Bormann capital network. (See excerpt include below.)

Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Manning; pp. 282-3. [9]

EXCERPT:  . . . . Each of these three spin­offs from I.G. Far­ben today does more busi­ness indi­vid­u­ally than did Far­ben at its zenith, when its cor­po­rate struc­ture cov­ered 93 coun­tries. BASF and Bayer indi­vid­u­ally boast world­wide sales of nearly $10 bil­lion annu­ally, while Hoechst, now the world’s largest chem­i­cal com­pany, gen­er­ated $16.01 bil­lion in world­wide sales in 1980. Each does more busi­ness than E.I. du Pont de Nemours, with sales of $9.4 bil­lion. . . . The United States is, of course, the major mar­ket, one into which these Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions con­tinue to pour invest­ment money for both new cap­i­tal con­struc­tion and cor­po­rate takeovers. Together, these three multi­na­tion­als assure per­ma­nent pros­per­ity for the orig­i­nal 450 Far­ben stock­hold­ers, their banks, and the shad­owy share­hold­ers of the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion in South Amer­ica who guard and vote the Her­mann Schmitz trust fund through inter­me­di­aries at the annual meet­ings of BASF, Bayer and Hoechst. . . .

Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Manning; pp. 279-80. [9]

EXCERPT: . . . . If there is any doubt in Europe who in the long run won the peace, there is none what­so­ever among the for­mer Ger­man lead­ers dwelling in South Amer­ica. It is a good bet that if Her­mann Schmitz were alive today, he would bear wit­ness as to who really won. Schmitz died con­tented, hav­ing wit­nessed the resur­gence of I.G. Far­ben, albeit in altered cor­po­rate forms, a money machine that con­tin­ues to gen­er­ate prof­its for all the old I.G. share­hold­ers and enor­mous inter­na­tional power for the Ger­man cadre direct­ing the work­ings of the suc­ces­sor firms. . . . He was the mas­ter manip­u­la­tor, the cor­po­rate and finan­cial wiz­ard, the magi­cian, who could make money appear and dis­ap­pear, and reap­pear again. His whole exis­tence was leg­erde­main, played out on the game­board of I.G. Far­ben and his beloved Ger­many. . . Their [Schmitz and Bor­mann] asso­ci­a­tion was close and trust­ing over the years, and it is the con­sid­ered opin­ion of those in their cir­cle that the wealth pos­sessed by Her­mann Schmitz was shifted to Switzer­land and South Amer­ica, and placed in trust with Bor­mann, the legal heir to Hitler. [Her­mann] Schmitz’s wealth—largely I.G. Far­ben bearer bonds con­verted to the Big Three suc­ces­sor firms, shares in Stan­dard Oil of New Jer­sey (equal to those held by the Rock­e­fellers), as well as shares in the 750 cor­po­ra­tions he helped Bor­mann estab­lish dur­ing the last year of World War II—has increased in all seg­ments of the mod­ern indus­trial world. The Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion in South Amer­ica uti­lizes the vot­ing power of the Schmitz trust along with their own assets to guide the multi­na­tion­als they con­trol, as they keep steady the eco­nomic course of the Father­land. . .

“A Big, and Risky, Energy Bet” by John M. Broder and Clifford Krauss; The New York Times; 12/18/2012. [10]

EXCERPT: The compact assembly of towers, tubes and tanks that make up the Oryx natural gas processing plant is almost lost in a vast petrochemical complex that rises here like a hazy mirage from a vast ocean of sand. But what is occurring at Oryx is a particular kind of alchemy that has tantalized scientists for nearly a century with prospects of transforming the energy landscape. Sasol, a chemical and synthetic fuels company based in South Africa, is converting natural gas to diesel fuel using a variation of a technology developed by German scientists in the 1920s. Performing such chemical wizardry is exceedingly costly. But executives at Sasol and a partner, Qatar’s state-owned oil company, are betting that natural gas, which is abundant here, will become the dominant global fuel source over the next 50 years, oil will become scarcer and more expensive and global demand for transport fuels will grow. Sasol executives say the company believes so strongly in the promise of this technology that this month, it announced plans to spend up to $14 billion to build the first gas-to-liquids plant in the United States, in Louisiana, supported by more than $2 billion in state incentives. A shale drilling boom in that region in the last five years has produced a glut of cheap gas, and the executives say Sasol can tap that supply to make diesel and other refined products at competitive prices. Marjo Louw, president of Sasol Qatar, says that his company can produce diesel fuel that burns cleaner, costs less and creates less greenhouse gas pollution than fuel derived from crude oil. . . . . . . . Until recently, the method used to convert natural gas or coal to liquid fuel — known as the Fischer-Tropsch process after the Germans who invented it — had been used only by pariah nations desperate for transportation fuels when they had little or no oil available. For decades, South Africa defended its system of apartheid from international oil embargoes by producing synthetic oil from its rich coal resources. Nazi Germany did the same to fuel its military machine in World War II. But with North Africa and the Middle East chronically unstable and natural gas cheap and plentiful in the United States, some say the technology is now an enticing option to produce various fuels without importing a drop of oil. . . .

“Rising Power Qatar Stirs Unease Among Some Mideast Neighbors”; Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report. [11]

EXCERPT: In the center of Cairo, young men hold up a burning flag for the cameras to show their fury at a nation they believe is meddling in their country and the wider Middle East. It’s a familiar image. But it’s not the U.S. flag they are waving, it is that of Qatar, the Gulf state that has used its billions to spread its influence in the wake of the Arab Spring. For most Western governments and officials, the influence of Qatar emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani’s government is seen as broadly positive. In Egypt, Libya and Syria, where Qatar tried to play a role post-Arab Spring, it finds itself blamed for much that has gone wrong on a local level. Close ties to Egypt’s new leaders, the Muslim Brotherhood, have alarmed countries like the United Arab Emirates, where the Islamist group is still banned and which in January said it had foiled a Brotherhood-linked coup plot. Senior officials in the UAE have long believed Qatar has long-term strategy to use the Brotherhood to redraw the region. ”There is both greater apprehension and appreciation for Qatar two years after the Arab awakening in the region,” said Taufiq Rahim, Executive Director of Dubai-based geopolitics consultancy Globesight. ”While prior to the revolutions, Qatar was seen more as a mediator, its foreign policy recently has been much more proactive and in some cases partisan.” Some Western analysts and diplomats believe Qatar’s leaders have been effectively improvising their way through the new landscape, experimenting to see what they can achieve with the massive wealth generated by its natural gas reserves over the past 15 years. An estimated $17 trillion in monetisable natural gas riches still remain in the ground. Others, however, see a much more deliberate strategy. ”What we are seeing here is a high-stakes poker game for the future of the Middle East,” said one Gulf-based Western diplomat on condition of anonymity. Even supporters are concerned the country may be overstepping its boundaries and getting a reputation for playing favorites. A post from last October reported on the visit to Gaza by the Emir of Qatar described as the “biggest diplomatic victory” for Hamas since taking power five years ago. A post from earlier that week reported on the announcement of the biggest contribution of reconstruction aid for Hamas-ruled Gaza since the destruction accompanying the Israeli-Gaza conflict four years ago. A post from August reported on the plans for an Egypt-Qatar summit where the Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was to receive the Emir of Qatar. AP had reported earlier that Qatar was granting Egypt a $2 billion loan to help the country’s troubled economy. A post from March reported that the Deputy Chairman of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was visiting Qatar for meetings with Qatari official. An earlier post discussed the relocation of Hamas political leader Khaled Mashaal from Syria to Qatar in yet another sign of the country growing importance as a center of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. A series of recent and important Global Muslim Brotherhood events have been held in Qatar illustrating the increasing importance of the country to the Global Brotherhood. . . .

“In an Alliance with the Dictatorship”; german-foreign-policy.com; 2013/04/15. [8]

EXCERPT: The Prime Minister of Qatar, who is also the country’s Foreign Minster, is arriving in Berlin today for talks on the war in Syria and on strengthening economic cooperation. Since some time, this Persian Gulf dictatorship has been one of Germany’s closest allies in the Arab world. As in the 2011 war on Libya, it is supporting Islamist rebels today in Syria, who are seeking to topple a government combated by the West. Berlin’s cooperation with Qatar on matters of foreign policy is being consolidated by economic cooperation. German companies benefit from lucrative Middle East contracts, while the Qatari ruling clan buys a significant amount of shares in major German companies, such as Volkswagen and Siemens. Qatar has been linking its financial support in France, to a large-scale public relations campaign in the suburban slums. German involvement in the war in Syria, will most likely also be a topic in these talks with Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabir al Thani in Berlin. A German Navy “reconnaissance” vessel is, currently, cruising again off the Syrian coast. Experts believe that Syrian insurgents are also profiting from information retrieved by this espionage. . . .
