The investigation into a recent cyberattack has highlighted an eccentric, brilliant programmer named Sven Olaf Kamphuis, a citizen of the Netherlands. Kamphuis emphatically denies that he was in any way involved in the attacks and no charges have been filed. What interests us are some aspects of Mr. Kamphuis’s outlook that suggest the possibility that he might be what we have termed “Cyber-Wandervogel.”
Co-author of a controversial book on the Israel Lobby, John Mearsheimer has run professional interference for a wild-eyed anti-Semite and Hitler apologist named Gilad Atzmon. Atzmon’s views would make Goebbels blush. In addition to endorsing Mearsheimer’s support for Atzmon, Stephen Walt has contributed to a publication openly affiliated with Hamas and giving access to medieval anti-Semites of Atzmon’s ilk.
An alliance of “Yockeyite” or Third Position character has taken shape in Hungary. A city controlled by the Hungarian Jobbik Party and an Iranian city have announced a cooperative agreement. Recapitulating Hungary’s fascist past to a considerable extent, the Jobbik Party on its surface would seem to have little in common with Iran, other than anti-Semitism.
Italy’s recent elections saw the Five Stars Movement of comedian Beppe Grillo winning a share of the vote that will enable it to play a key role in forming the next coalition government. There are indications of the party’s sympathy for fascism and neo-fascism. Not surprisingly, Grillo appears to be anti-Semitic as well.
Manifesting the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood–an Islamic fascist organization allied with the Axis in World War II, Mohamed Morsi is behaving in a predictable fashion. Morsi’s government is attempting to censor popular media. The reforms desired by the Egyptian people have proved illusory. Torture continues to the routine of the security forces.
We recall the tsunami of praise, Hosannas and Hallelujahs gushing forth from the world’s media and political punditry. Hailing the “Arab Spring” as the dawning of a new enlightenment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–fundamentally. We, on the other hand, were warning that this phenomenon was a Nazi operation, having been initiated by powerful corporate forces in the second administration of George W. Bush, it had its trigger with the WikiLeaks milieu–itself a far-right, Nazi-linked entity, as we demonstrated in FTR’s 732 and #745. (In addition to the documentation in the original WikiLeaks/Arab Spring series, see the article excerpted below.) Before delving into details, an excellent overview of recent events in Egypt was provided in an English-language blog by a citizen of that tortured country. The contradictions and deadly undercurrents of unfolding events were eloquently summed up by Mahmoud Salem in “Imagine.”
Hungarian far-right politico Marton Gyongyosi, urges government to draw up lists of Jews who pose a “national security risk” and should include members of parliament.
German diplomats maintained a cozy relationship with the Black September terrorists responsible for the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. Expressing sympathy for the Palestinians, they never made a serious attempt at extraditing the terrorists behind the attack. A number of contradictions are evident in examining the record of the events, including a discrepancy in the number of terrorists actually involved in the incident, the German security forces’ lack of rifles at the airport (they were planning to snipe the terrorists at the airport), and the Germans’ refusal of cooperation by Israeli intelligence and security forces.
Apple Corporation includes an “app” permitting ITunes users to download The Protocols of the Elders of Zion–the notorious anti-Semitic forgery that was one of the primary ideological influences on Adolf Hitler. “The Protocols” has been making something of a comeback, being published by Bavarian educators, in order to teach to high school students.
German authorities had a warning three weeks before the Olympics massacre of 1972. With security headed by an officer of the BND, the final incarnation of the Gehlen “Org” and with neo-Nazis assisting the Palestinian terrorists, this comes as no surprise. The BND Olympics security chief has also been accused of staging provocations and providing an alibi for a Nazi leader in the 1980 Oktoberfest bombing.
