FTR #886 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 3: Geopolitical Quicksand

Analyzing the possibility that American use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamists as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist free-market economic values might backfire on the United States, we look at the development of ISIS, the curious Turkish about-face on the Fetullah Gulen organization and fallout from the so-called “Arab Spring.” Beginning with discussion of a “doomsday” contingency plan concocted by al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein to back each other up militarily in the event either or both were overthrown by the U.S., we examine the prominent role of former members of Saddam’s officer corps in administering ISIS. ISIS and al-Qaeda are holding forth in Libya, which is serving as a base for spreading their operations into Africa. Like the bloody Syrian civil war, the overthrow of Khadafy (which set the stage for the Islamist presence in Libya) is an outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring”–one of the “conga-line ops” we highlighted in FTR #885. Much of the program highlights the operations of the Fetullah Gulen organization in Turkey. Alleged to be a CIA front organization and Islamic extremist in nature, the Gulen organization was formerly an ally of Tayyip Erdogan. Now, it is among his most bitter opponents. Program Highlights Include: review of Hitler’s view that Islamists were a crucial Third Reich ally; review of a critical meeting in Switzerland at which prominent Euro-fascists and al-Taqwa director Ahmed Huber met; speculation that the Swiss “Euro-fascist” summit may have helped generate the intelligence disinformation that helped lure the Bush administration into the ill-advised Iraq war; “ex” CIA officer Graham Fuller’s ridicule of the allegation that the Gulen organization is a CIA front organization; the close connections between Erdogan’s AKP Party, Germany and the EU.


FTR #834 Compendium of Fascist Connections to the Zionist Movement

With Benjamin Netanyahu circumventing accepted procedure and preparing to address Congress–apparently in order to circumvent Obama’s policy toward Iran–we take time to review the history of the Netanyahu family and the Likud Party. Likud is the heir to the fascist element in the Zionist movement, especially the Betar that was headed by Vladimir Jabotinsky. Netanyahu’s father was the personal secretary to Jabotinsky, whose forces took military training at Mussolini’s naval cadet school and were reviewed by Il Duce himself. A top aide to Jabotinsky wrote that this was not an alliance of convenience but one of ideological affinity. Continuing the relationship between fascism and reactionary Zionism, the Likud sent a representative to the national convention of Gianfranco Fini’s Alleanza Nationale, the successor to Mussolini’s blackshirts. The GOP sent a seated Congressman (Bob Young) to the convention as well. Right-wing Israeli politicians continue to network with European fascists. After discussion of the Stern Gang, an even more extreme fascist element of the Zionist movement, the broadcast concludes with a look at the relationship between Israel, some Jewish businessmen and the Bormann capital network. This should not be interpreted as echoing the cheesy rhetoric that is popular at the moment characterizing Israel and/or the Zionist movement as fascist.


FTR #776 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 15: Updates and Further Analysis

This broadcast continues and updates analysis of “L’Affaire Snowden”–a “psy-op” assembled for propaganda purposes and resultant political effect. The “op” is intended to: destabilize the Obama administration and U.S. diplomacy and foreign policy; degrade U.S. high-tech and internet business and (consequently) the U.S. economy; justify Germany’s inclusion in the “Five Eyes” agreement and justify expansion of German electronic surveillance; destabilize and weaken the National Security Agency and the GCHQ; eclipse German economic warfare against other European countries and highlight the United States as the “International Public Enemy #1.”


Imagine, “Morsi Is a Textbook Islamic Fascist”: I Told You So, Part 3 (Democracy, Muslim Brotherhood Style, Part 3)

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.”


P-2, Take II?

Comment: A recent fissure between Italian neo-fascist (he calls himself a “post-fascist”) Gianfranco Fini and Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi turned up indications of a cabal of powerful figures, who have clandestinely coalesced into a secretive, pivotal influence group. (Berlusconi is pictured at right.) This is reminiscent of the sinister P-2 Lodge of Licio Gelli, a […]
