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.


Elements of Western Intel Using Jihadists: Genesis of ISIS?

A wor­thy post from “Ger­man For­eign Pol­i­cy,” which feeds along the bot­tom of the front page of this web­site, flesh­es out our under­stand­ing of the use of jihadists as proxy war­riors. With Sau­di and West­ern intel back­ing, Sun­ni extrem­ist com­bat­ants are being used against Iran, Syr­ia and Rus­sia. Is ISIS “blow­back” from this dynam­ic?

Strange Bedfellows

One of the stranger sto­ries we have seen recent­ly con­cerns the open­ing of a “halal sex shop” in Sau­di Ara­bia. What real­ly piqued our inter­est was the founder of the firm, “for­mer Nazi pilot Beate Use-Roter­mund.” We won­der if, like the oth­er big Ger­man firms, this com­pa­ny– the largest sex com­pa­ny in the world–is tied at a fun­da­men­tal lev­el to the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work?

Shifting Sands of the Alwaleed Desert

A wide­ly report­ed sto­ry con­cerns the “20th [9/11] hijack­er” Zac­cha­rias Mous­saoui’s accu­sa­tions that a num­ber of promi­nent Sau­di princes helped finance al-Qae­da, includ­ing Prince Alwaleed, the fab­u­lous­ly wealthy investor who was the sec­ond largest stock­hold­er in Rup­pert Mur­doch’s News­corp. The day after the report sur­faced, we learn that Alwaleed sold almost all of his stock in the firm. We won­der if the two events might be con­nect­ed?

FTR #830 Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­ed­ly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qae­da and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-com­mu­nist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­ful­ly scape­goat­ed by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the Nation­al Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­al­ly ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­at­ed among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­o­gy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tin­ue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na’s Xin­jiang Province.


FTR #796 Sterling Example: Another Visit with Daniel Hopsicker

Recent­ly, soon-to-be-for­mer Los Ange­les Clip­pers own­er Don­ald Ster­ling has gar­nered much media atten­tion for his “off the rails” com­ments about African-Amer­i­cans and for­mer NBA great Mag­ic John­son, in par­tic­u­lar. What has NOT gar­nered much atten­tion at all is his back­ground. An asso­ciate of mob straw man Allen Glick and his bud­dy, the late Al Davis of Oak­land Raiders fame, Sterling’s rise in the real estate busi­ness sug­gests that there is more to the sto­ry than meets the eye.One of the aspects of Sterling’s career that has received lit­tle scruti­ny is his curi­ous behav­ior with regard to a non-exis­tent project for the home­less and the appar­ent­ly non-exis­tent “assis­tance” to that project pro­vid­ed by Ramy El-Batrawi. Batrawi was a long-time asso­ciate of arms deal­er and mon­ey-man Adnan Khashog­gi, a major play­er in the shad­owy world of intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty covert oper­a­tions, gun-run­ning and dope traf­fick­ing. Khashog­gi has been a major financier of the “con­trolled demo­li­tion of the World Trade Cen­ter” dis­in­for­ma­tion oper­a­tion, craft­ed by some of the 9/11 con­spir­a­tors to cov­er-up their attacks.


The Ministry of Truth and Malaysian Air 370

Nev­er have we seen the news media–The Min­istry of Truth in the most lit­er­al, Orwellian sense–behave more shame­ful­ly. The same Islamist/Muslim Broth­er­hood ele­ments fig­ure into this inves­ti­ga­tion as into 9/11 and–most recently–the Boston Marathon bomb­ing. The pilot was a devo­tee of Malaysian Mus­lim Broth­er Anwar Ibrahim, who was con­vict­ed on sodomy charges hours before the plane’s dis­ap­pear­ance.


FTR #773 The Boston Marathon Bombing, the Third Position and the Leaderless Resistance Strategy

Many of the same ele­ments that fig­ured in the failed inves­ti­ga­tion into the 9/11 attacks crop up in con­nec­tion with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, as well. In addi­tion to intel­li­gence ele­ments linked to the GOP/Petroleum/Underground Reich ele­ment of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, there are indi­ca­tions that the accused bombers may have been indoc­tri­nat­ed with domes­tic fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy. An appar­ent ter­ror­ist attack on a PG & E pow­er sub­sa­tion at the same time may indi­cate that the “lead­er­less resis­tance” strat­e­gy is being man­i­fest­ed here.
