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 #877 Update on the Ukrainian Crisis

Before we turn to con­tin­u­ing analy­sis of “The Earth Island Boo­gie” in suc­ceed­ing pro­grams, we set the stage by updat­ing events in Ukraine. To the sur­prise of no one, the OUN/B heirs in pow­er in Ukraine have not indict­ed any­one in the burn­ing alive of 42 pro-Russ­ian demon­stra­tors in Odessa in May of 2014. The Ukrain­ian “counter-ter­ror­ist” forces are inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the OUN/B heirs in gov­ern­ment and the per­pe­tra­tors of the act. Fail­ure of gov­er­nance is tak­ing its toll on the Ukrain­ian pop­u­lace, expressed by sup­port for OUN/B‑style fas­cists such as Svo­bo­da in West­ern Ukraine, sup­port for the polit­i­cal forces grouped around the cor­rupt for­mer pres­i­dent Vic­tor Yanukovych in the east­ern and south­ern parts of the coun­try and the elec­tion to the Odessa city coun­cil of a politi­cian who assumed the name of a Star Wars vil­lain. In response to grow­ing crit­i­cism of the Ukrain­ian sit­u­a­tion, the EU is imple­ment­ing an infor­ma­tion war­fare pro­gram direct­ed not only at EU mem­bers in East­ern Europe but in Rus­sia as well. A pri­ma­ry the­o­ret­i­cal influ­ence on the infor­ma­tion war­fare the EU is con­duct­ing appears to be for­mer Wehrma­cht gen­er­al Wolf Ste­fan Trau­gott Graf von Baud­issin, who served on Rom­mel’s staff dur­ing World War II. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the effect of anti-Russ­ian sen­ti­ment expressed by the Maid­an coup­sters on the pop­u­la­tion of the East­ern part of the coun­try; the effect of the war waged by the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment on pub­lic sen­ti­ment in the east; the over­whelm­ing prob­a­bil­i­ty that hard intel­li­gence on the shoot­down of Malaysian Air­lines Flight 17 does not sup­port the “Putin/Separatists did it” line; dis­cus­sion of the long-stand­ing sen­ti­ment on the part of Crimeans for re-uni­fi­ca­tion with Rus­sia; von Baud­iss­in’s role in the re-insti­tu­tion of Nazi forces in the post­war Ger­man mil­i­tary.


FTR #875 Update on Ukraine

Pravy Sek­tor asso­ciate Valen­tyn Naly­vaichenko had been the head of the SBU (the Ukrain­ian intel­li­gence ser­vice) since the Maid­an Coup, up until his ouster in June of 2015. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, he had oper­at­ed the orga­ni­za­tion along the lines of the OUN/B. Pre­vi­ous­ly, he had served in that same capac­i­ty under Vik­tor Yuschenko, see­ing the out­fit as a vehi­cle for rewrit­ing Ukraine’s his­to­ry in accor­dance with the his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism favored by the OUN/B. Very close to Pravy Sek­tor head Dymitro Yarosh, Naly­vaichenko employed Yarosh while serv­ing in the Ukrain­ian par­lia­ment. Yarosh claims that the two col­lab­o­rat­ed on “anti-ter­ror­ist” oper­a­tions con­duct­ed against eth­nic Rus­sians. The bulk of the pro­gram con­sists of the read­ing of a review of a recent book about OUN/B leader Stephan Ban­dera. The encap­su­la­tion of the book sets forth the tan­gled, bloody his­to­ry lead­ing up to the for­ma­tion of the OUN/B and the evo­lu­tion of the orga­ni­za­tion into a Third Reich ally.


New Book about Stephan Bandera Tells It Like It Is

A new book was just pub­lished exam­in­ing the life of Stepan Ban­dera, the Ukrain­ian fas­cist and Third Reich ally whose polit­i­cal heirs ascend­ed to pow­er in Ukraine through the Maid­an coup. We have repeat­ed­ly made the point that the dimen­sions of offi­cial lying in the West were of tru­ly Orwellian proportions–documented World War II his­to­ry was being dis­missed as “Russ­ian pro­pa­gan­da” or “Krem­lin pro­pa­gan­da.” ” . . . But thanks to Grze­gorz Rossolinski-Liebe’s Stepan Ban­dera: The Life and After­life of a Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ist, it now seems clear: those ter­ri­ble Rus­sians were right.” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

FTR #860 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 7 (All’s Well That’s Orwell, Part 3)

In a recent appear­ance before a Jew­ish audi­ence (while drum­ming up sup­port for the Iran nuclear deal), Pres­i­dent Oba­ma not­ed that Iran was a coun­try that denied the Holo­caust. Oba­ma’s remarks were deeply iron­ic in light of the fact that the OUN/B redux gov­ern­ment in pow­er in Ukraine (with Amer­i­can mil­i­tary, polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic sup­port) con­tin­ues to man­i­fest a pro­found Holo­caust revi­sion­ism. Polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary allies of the Third Reich, the OUN/B under Stephan Ban­dera and Jaroslav Stet­sko imple­ment­ed eth­nic cleans­ing mas­sacres against Jews, Poles, Rus­sians Roma and oth­er “polit­i­cal unde­sir­ables” dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. Nur­tured with­in ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence and incor­po­rat­ed into the Repub­li­can Par­ty after World War II, the OUN/B were pro­ject­ed back into Ukraine fol­low­ing the breakup of the U.S.S.R. Imple­ment­ing a law crim­i­nal­iz­ing crit­i­cism of the OUN/B and its mil­i­tary wing the UPA, the Ukrain­ian regime is insti­tu­tion­al­iz­ing a fun­da­men­tal per­ver­sion of that region’s his­to­ry dur­ing World War II. The Ukrain­ian per­spec­tive is being echoed in West­ern media and polit­i­cal pro­nounce­ments. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the Nazi Azov Bat­tal­ion’s devel­op­ment of a youth wing; the white­wash­ing of the mur­der­ous career of Symon Petliu­ra, a Ukrain­ian pogromist and antecedent of the OUN/B; the role of OUN/B oper­a­tive Volodomyr Via­tro­vych in imple­ment­ing Ukraine’s his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism; con­tin­ued cov­er-up of the facts con­cern­ing the shoot­down of Malaysian Air­lines flight MH-17; review of “Yuschenkoism”–Viktor Yuschenko’s revi­sion­ist poli­cies that set the stage for Poroshenko’s per­pet­u­a­tion of those poli­cies; review of Ukrain­ian pres­i­dents Yuschenko and Poroshenko hon­or­ing the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers at Babi Yar; Symon Pet­lyu­ra’s abortive alliance with Vladimir Jabotin­sky, which has been used to deny Petli­u­ra’s anti-Semi­tism.


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 #853 Walkin’ the Snake at Babi Yar: Update on the Ukraine Crisis

Once again, we revis­it the sce­nario pre­sent­ed in the Nazi tract “Ser­pen­t’s Walk.” Sup­pos­ed­ly a nov­el, the book deals with a Nazi takeover of the U.S. in the mid-21st cen­tu­ry by the SS, who have gained eco­nom­ic influ­ence in the opin­ion-form­ing media and stood the polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal record of World War Ii on its head. We are see­ing this in Ukraine, where both pres­i­dents Yuschenko and Poroshenko vis­it­ed the site of the Babi Yar mas­sacres, in order to hon­or the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers who helped per­pe­trate the atroc­i­ty. Con­tem­po­rary Ukraine is also see­ing the atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted by OUN/B and the UPA being offi­cial­ly denied and pro­tect­ed from crit­i­cism by new crim­i­nal laws. Sup­port­ers of OUN and UPA are deny­ing their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Lvov pogrom of 1941, despite clear his­tor­i­cal evi­dence of their role. Con­tem­po­rary anti-Semi­tism in Ukraine is being dis­sem­i­nat­ed by the MAUP orga­ni­za­tion, which runs the largest pri­vate uni­ver­si­ty in Ukraine. Pro­gram High­lights Include: David Duke’s teach­ing role at the MAUP-fund­ed uni­ver­si­ty; Julian Assange aide Joran Jer­mas aka “Israel Shamir,” who is part of the MAUP orbit; a march by OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tion Pravy Sek­tor call­ing for a resump­tion of hos­til­i­ties in the East; review of the role of the Nachti­gall (“Nightin­gale”) group in the Lvov pogrom; review of the mas­sive and well-con­nect­ed Ukrain­ian fas­cist pres­ence in the U.S. pri­or to World War II; the draft­ing of the new Ukrain­ian law crim­i­nal­iz­ing crit­i­cism of OUN and UPA by Yuri Shukhevych, the son of Roman Shukhevych, the head of UPA.


Ukrainian Presidents Honored the Executioners of Babi Yar: Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Continued

“. . . For­mer Pres­i­dent Vik­tor Yushchenko, in fact, hon­ored Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists at a memo­r­i­al in Babi Yar, where the most hor­rif­ic mas­sacre of Jews took place through­out the Holo­caust [per­formed by units large­ly com­posed of OUN/B members–D.E.]. . . . In fact, the Pres­i­dent [Poroshenko] has gone out of his way to fol­low in the foot­steps of his reac­tionary pre­de­ces­sor Yushchenko by once again lay­ing a wreath in hon­or of the OUN at Babi Yar. . . .” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.
