FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Continuing our analysis of an overlapping series of massive covert operations in the Earth Island utilizing Muslim Brotherhood-based Sunni jihadists and intersecting Pan-Turkist elements, we analyze the genesis of ISIS. Stemming from a covert operation in which elements of CIA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood are operating in Southern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syria, ISIS appears to be something of a Frankenstein’s monster. Envisioned as a Salafist principality in Eastern Syria to destabilize the Assad regime, the Islamic State used AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) infrastructure to spread into Iraq, threatening the “gains” of the misguided U.S. invasion of that country. Now, this Islamist Frankenstein’s monster is attacking the West, driving the political spectrum in Europe and the United States rightward. That reaction, in turn, is fueling Muslim alienation to the delight and benefit of ISIS. Program Highlights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “former” membership in the Muslim Brotherhood; the decisive role of Chechen fighters in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSO fighters (Pravy Sektor) in Chechnya and Georgia; ISIS’s use of Bitcoin to stash their financial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypted Berlin-based messaging service for its communiques; an oblique endorsement of ISIS by the chief of Turkish intelligence; review of the re-direction of the anti-Soviet jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russian combat in Chechnya; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of using jihadists against Russia in the Caucasus and China in central Asia.


FTR #879 Further Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

As the title indicates, this broadcast continues analysis of the growing confluence of Muslim-Brotherhood dominated Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements, this against the background of the mounting hostilities overtaking the region. After repeating a quote from Zbigniew Brzezinski read by Elizabeth Gould in FTR #872 proposing to use Islamists to destabilize post-Cold War Russia and China, we highlight an article detailing Turkish military support for Turkmen militia and overlapping Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) and ISIS combatants in Syria. Turkey’s recent shootdown of a Russian combat jet appears to have resulted from Turkish air cover for the so-called “moderates” in Syria. Much of the first half of the program consists of analysis of an article examining how U.S. military interventions of recent decades have helped install Islamist regimes in place of secular ones–this in areas that had once been part of the Ottoman Empire. As noted by the author, Germany is a quiet, principal benefactor of the U.S. action. In our series about the so-called “Arab Spring.” (we call it “The Muslim Brotherhood Spring”), we noted that Erdogan’s Turkey was not a “moderate” Islamic democracy at all, but a Muslim Brotherhood autocracy evolved from the al-Taqwa milieu. Even many Turkish citizens are now openly charging Erdogan with being a fascist. As we see Grey Wolf elements working in Syria, Asia and (in all probability) in Ukraine, we should not forget that Turkey is also a NATO country. The program concludes with a re-broadcast of FTR #59, highlighting the Grey Wolves’ role as the Turkish “Stay Behind” forces. Operation Stay Behind was a NATO program to use fascist formations as reserve guerilla forces, to be used either in the event of World War III or against a democratically-elected leftist government in Europe. Not surprisingly, the Stay Behind forces often precipitated terror attacks and assassinations in their host countries.


FTR #878 Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

In recent years, we have noted growing confluence between Muslim Brotherhood-based Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements. In addition to their utility as proxy warriors against the former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, Russia and contemporary China, the Muslim Brotherhood is viewed with favor in the West because of its corporatist economics. As events in Ukraine, the Middle East and Asia continue to heat up, the Islamist/Pan-Turkist connection appears to be solidifying. The “cement” that is bringing them together appears to be elements of Western intelligence, the Underground Reich/transnational corporate faction of the CIA in particular. We are now seeing Islamist/Pan-Turkist combatants active all around the Earth Island: Grey Wolf-linked combatants working with elements of CIA in Syria, backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and having executed a Russian pilot who bailed out of his jet shot down by a Turkish F-16; Chechen/ISIS-linked fighters in Ukraine fighting under Pravy Sektor command; Crimean Tatars backed by Turkey and collaborating with Pravy Sektor sabotaging the Crimean power grid, water supply and road traffic and Grey Wolves working with the al-Qaeda-linked Uighurs in China (apparently authoring a terrorist bombing in Thailand directed against Chinese tourists). With Pan-Turkist Islamists fighting against Russia in Ukraine and against China in fossil-fuel-rich Xinjiang Province and Thailand, it is difficult not to see the hand of the Underground Reich faction of CIA at work. Much of the program consists of a re-broadcast of part of AFA #14 talking about the former World Anti-Communist League and the powerful Pan-Turkist element within the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. Program Highlights Include: Pan-Turkist collaboration with the Third Reich and the pre-war Promethean League; National Action Party founder Alparsan Turkes’ agitation on behalf of Turkish entry into World War II on the side of the Axis; Turkes’ role as a key Turkish representative to NATO; the Turkish government of Tayyip Erdogan’s overt support for the Crimean Tatars as well as the Turkmen militia in Syria; Pan-Turkist SS veteran Ruzy Nazar’s work for elements of CIA and his presence at the WACL conference in Dallas in 1984 as a representative of the ABN.


FTR #872 Interview with Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald about Zbigniew Brzezinski, Afghanistan’s Untold Story and the Ukraine Crisis

Revisiting Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald, co-authors of “Invisible History: Afghanistan’s Untold Story,” we examine Zbigniew Brzezinski’s role in luring the Soviet Union into the first Afghan war, and his prominent role as a geopolitical theoretician behind the Ukrainian crisis. Seeking to give the USSR “their Vietnam,” Brzezinski deliberately set the stage for the war that ultimately led to the creation of al-Qaeda. Seeing Ukraine as a key to control of Eurasia and the World Island or Earth Island, Citizen Brzezinski has been a leading advocate for Western involvement in Ukraine. His son Ian has advocated for loosening the chain of command governing the use of nuclear weapons. Program Highlights Include: review of the corporatist economic philosophy of the Muslim Brotherhood; CIA officer Graham Fuller’s role in the precipitation of the first Afghan war; discussion of the Rockefeller milieu and its role in spawning Brzezinski, as well as Henry Kissinger; review of the role of ISIS-linked Chechen fighters in the fighting in Ukraine; review of the American violation of a promise made to Gorbachev not to expand NATO up to the Russian border; review of the Boston Marathon Bombing, which appears to have been “blowback” from an apparent covert operation in the Caucasus.


FTR #863 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 2

Stretching from the Straits of Gibraltar, all across Europe, most of the Middle East, Eurasia, Russia, China and India, that stretch of land known as the “Earth Island”: 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. In this broadcast, we examine what might be termed political strange bedfellows grouped together against Russia and China and advancing an apparent Underground Reich and corporatist agenda in parts of Russia and China. In addition to the Tibetan Buddhist milieu of the Dalai Lama, Uighur Muslims associated with Al Qaeda and the Pan-Turkist movement are ranked together under the banner of the UNPO and the House of Habsburg. Active in Ukraine, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for centuries, the Habsburgs appear to be a coordinating executive element mobilizing the diverse ethnic groups working against Russia and China. Program Highlights Include: OUN/B operative Paula Dobriansky’s control of the Tibet Desk at the State Department; Uighur links to Al Qaeda and other Muslim Brotherhood offshoots; review of the Dalai Lama’s historical relationships with the SS and the CIA; review of Peter Levenda’s concept of “weaponized religion;” support for the Uighurs by the Pan-Turkist and fascist National Action Party; Erkin Altepkin’s alliances with the Habsburg milieu, the Dalai Lama and elements of Western intelligence; the growing presence of ISIS-affiliated fighters from Chechnya in the Ukrainian conflict.


FTR #857 Update on Ukraine, the Earth Island Boogie and “Team Snowden”

Placing the Ukraine crisis in a larger framework, this program analyzes the event in the context of both the “Earth Island” (or “World Island” as it is sometimes called) and the psy-op fronted for by Edward Snowden. 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 stratagem that has been in effect in the West for a century. That stratagem is apparently behind the inclusion of Muslim Chechen fighters associated with the Islamic State in the Ukraine war, fighting under the administrative command of the Nazi Pravy Sektor group. After reviewing Zbigniew Brzezinski’s use of Muslim proxy warriors to draw the Soviets into the first Afghan war and his view of Ukraine as essential to bottling-up Russia, the program notes that the U.S. is continuing to train Nazi combatants in Ukraine despite a prohibition against doing so, because the Ukraine Ministry of Interior is vetting the trainees–THAT is the ministry that formed and administers the Nazi formations. Much of the program notes the continuity between Euro-fascists such as the Carl Lundstrom-financed Sweden Democrats and the WikiLeaks/Snowden “op.” (Lundstrom also bankrolled the Pirate Bay website that hosted WikiLeaks.) Program Highlights Include: statements by Ukrainian “volunteer” battalions that they want to attack Russia; Glenn Greenwald financial angel Pierre Omidyar’s new partnership with the National Endowment for Democracy (a U.S. intelligence proxy element); the push by the punisher battalions for Poroshenko to declare war (something he can’t do if the country is to receive badly-needed aid from the IMF); the links between Julian Assange assistant Joran Jermas (aka “Israel Shamir”) and the Nazi-inspired anti-Semitic MAUP group in Ukraine (at which David Duke teaches); the arrest of a member of parliament from the Sweden Democrats for apparent involvement in a bomb plot; review of the Sweden Democrats’ financing by Carl Lundstrom.


More about “The Earth Island Boogie”: Grey Wolves, National Action Party Supporting Uighurs

The Pan-Turkist and fascist National Action Party and its youth wing, the Grey Wolves (also “Gray Wolves”) are back in the news. Terrorizing Chinese and other Asian interests in Turkey, they are overtly supporting the Uighurs, the Muslim separatist group that appears to be a primary element in a destabilization effort against China and efforts to win “independence” for energy-rich Xinjiang province.

Islamic State “Brothers” Now Fighting in Ukraine Under Pravy Sektor Administrative Command

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.

FTR #842 Interview (#5) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This next installment of our discussions with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy” begins with discussion of individuals and organizations that comprised the postwar Nazi underground. Focused largely on the SS, these organizations were vehicles for the perpetuation of the Nazi struggle against the Allies (including the U.S. and Britain) at the same time as they interfaced with powerful elements of Western intelligence, who used them as Cold Warriors. Part of the Cold War strategy pursued by the U.S. was to resucitate (for a third time) the “global jihadist” strategy devised by Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Seeking the “believing” Muslims as proxy warriors against the atheistic communists, powerful elements of CIA and the State Department enlisted the Muslim Brotherhood in this struggle. “Weaponized religion” was also used in Asia, where the Third Reich had already established a working relationship with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhists, with SS officers of primary significance in the Nazis’ dealings with “His Holiness.” Key points of discussion include: the career of Otto Ernst Remer; the remarkable career of Francois Genoud; the Dalai Lama’s SS associate Bruno Beger’s atrocities war crimes; the Dalai Lama’s SS tutor–Heinrich Harrer–and his work for elements of U.S. and Western intelligence after the war.


FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of several interviews with Peter Levenda about his important new book “The Hitler Legacy,” this program highlights the evolution of elements which figure into the development of the post-war Nazi underground. At the end of the First World War, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and abortive Marxist uprisings in Germany and elsewhere in Europe infused the power elite in the U.S. with a paranoid ideological terror of a global “Jewish-Marxist” conspiracy. Combined with fear of Catholic and Jewish immigrants and their effect on American society, this ideological paranoia fused with a social Darwinism that found its expression in eugenics–a pseudo-intellectual doctrine that sought the promotion of “desirable” social and ethnic types and the suppression and/or elimination of “inferior” racial types. Seeing Germany as the point element in the struggle against world Marxism, individuals and political parties sought to ally with German fascists to bring fascism to the U.S. This fascist Fifth Column included political groups ranging from the Ku Klux Klan to the Silver Shirts of William Dudley Pelley, as well as the prototypical right-wing talk show host Father Charles Coughlin, “the Radio Priest.” Coughlin’s efforts were subsidized by Third Reich intelligence. Financed by financiers and industrialists who supported fascism, this Fifth Column attempted to kill and/or overthrow FDR on several occasions. In the Middle East, the concept of global jihad was developed by German archaelogist Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Envisioning the world’s Muslims as proxy warriors against the Entente Powers of Britain, France and Russia, von Oppenheim created the template for contemporary Islamic fascism and jihadism. Following the division of the former Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began manifesting belief in an international global conspiracy involving Jews and the European colonial powers that resonated with the American power elite’s idological anxieties.
