FTR #333 Forward Into the Past

MP3 Side 1 | Side 2

1. As stat­ed in the descrip­tions for FTRs 325 and 326, Mr. Emory believes ter­ror­ist ele­ments asso­ci­at­ed with the Under­ground Reich that were recruit­ed to help the Unit­ed States actu­al­ly have “dou­bled on Amer­i­ca”.  This pro­gram opens with dis­cus­sion of the rela­tion­ship between Ali Has­san Salameh and the CIA.  (“Good Spies Need Help from the Bad Guys” by David Ignatius [Wash­ing­ton Post]; San Jose Mer­cury News; 9/18/2001; p. 9B.)

2. Salameh was a prin­ci­pal oper­a­tive of the Black Sep­tem­ber orga­ni­za­tion, the reput­ed mas­ter­mind of the 1972 Olympics mas­sacre and (since 1970) an impor­tant asset of the CIA.  (Idem.)

3. A prin­ci­pal top­ic of dis­cus­sion in RFA#22, Salameh was the son of Has­san Salameh, a key aide to Haj Amin al-Hus­sei­ni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.  The Grand Mufti was a key Nazi oper­a­tive before, dur­ing and after World War II.  (“PLO Oper­a­tive Slain, Pur­port­ed­ly by Israelis, Had Been Help­ing U.S.” by David Ignatius; Wall Street Jour­nal; 2/10/83, p.1.)

4. The remain­der of the first half of the pro­gram con­sists of an excerpt from RFA#22.  The broad­cast sets forth the back­ground of father & son Salameh, their rela­tion­ship to the Grand Mufti and the elder Salame­h’s work on behalf of the Third Reich.  (The Quest for the Red Prince; by Michael Bar-Zohar and Eitan Haber; Copy­right 1983 [HC]; William Mor­row & Co.)

5. Has­san Salameh was a prin­ci­pal oper­a­tive in an abortive Third Reich plan to poi­son the wells of Tel Aviv and pre­cip­i­tate an Arab upris­ing against the British, in order to divert Allied troops away from the planned offen­sive in the Ardennes.  (Idem.)   It should be not­ed in that regard that, in that capac­i­ty, Salameh must have come under the oper­a­tional con­trol of SS colonel and ODESSA head Otto Sko­rzeny

6. Con­tin­u­ing to do the Grand Mufti’s bid­ding, Salameh fought against Israel dur­ing that coun­try’s war of inde­pen­dence.  (Idem.)

7. Ali Has­san Salameh was edu­cat­ed in Ger­many, spent con­sid­er­able time there, and ulti­mate­ly mar­ried a rel­a­tive of the Grand Mufti’s.  (Idem.)

8. The sec­ond side of the pro­gram turns to the sub­ject of Hans Lange­mann, the BND “secu­ri­ty” direc­tor of the 1972 Olympics-which turned out to be any­thing but secure.  (“Bonn Secu­ri­ty Aide is Seized After Dis­clo­sures on Secrets” [AP]; New York Times; 3/19/82.)   It should be not­ed that the BND (for which Lange­mann worked) was descend­ed from the Rein­hard Gehlen spy out­fit, the rein­car­na­tion of Adolf Hitler’s East­ern Front intel­li­gence orga­ni­za­tion from World War II.

9. Next, the pro­gram deals with Lange­man­n’s involve­ment in anoth­er affair con­cern­ing ter­ror­ism. Work­ing for the Bavar­i­an Ver­gas­sun­schutz (a domes­tic intel­li­gence agency) pro­vid­ed an ali­bi for Karl Heinz Hoff­man, a noto­ri­ous neo-Nazi impli­cat­ed in the Munich Octo­ber­fest bomb­ing of 1980.  (The New Reich: Vio­lent Extrem­ism in Uni­fied Ger­many and Beyond; by Michael Schmidt; Copy­right 1993 [HC]; Pan­theon Books; ISBN 0–679-42578–0; pp. 97–98.)

10. Horst Mahler, a key mem­ber of the NPD, arguably Ger­many’s top neo-Nazi group, applaud­ed the attacks of 9/11. (“Ger­man Right-Winger Applauds Ter­ror­ists” by Toby Helm; Dai­ly Tele­graph; 9/25/2001; accessed at www.news.telegraph.co.uk.)

11. Inter­est­ing­ly Mahler had been a mem­ber of the Red Army Fac­tion/Baad­er-Mein­hoff Gang dur­ing the 1970’s.  (“Mahler: From Left to Right” by Wolf­gang Schmidt; Search­light; 10/2001 [#316]; p. 25.)

12. While work­ing for the RAF/Baad­er-Mein­hoff, Mahler issued an ide­o­log­i­cal endorse­ment of the Olympics mas­sacre by Black Sep­tem­ber.  (Idem.)

13. The pro­gram then details con­nec­tions between a num­ber of key World War II and post­war fas­cist activists.  Swiss fas­cist Fran­cois Genoud devel­oped a num­ber of impor­tant rela­tion­ships.  (Dream­er of the Day: Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey and the Post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al; by Kevin Coogan; Copy­right 1999 [SC]; ISBN 1–57027-039–2; pp. 584–588.)

14. The heir to the lit­er­ary wills of Adolf Hitler and Mar­tin Bor­mann, Genoud was also close to SD intell­gence offi­cer Paul Dick­opf.  (The SD is the SS intel­li­gence ser­vice.  Dick­opf lat­er became head of the BKA, the West Ger­man Fed­er­al Police.  (Ibid.; p. 584.)

15. Dick­opf was also worked with Allen Dulles, who (as we saw in FTR#332) was close to the Bush fam­i­ly, von Bolschwing asso­ciate king Ibn Saud, who was a friend of Mohammed Bin Laden.  (Ibid.; pp. 584–5.)

16. Genoud was also on excel­lent terms with Nazi oper­a­tive Eugen Doll­mann and both were, in turn close to the Grand Mufti.  (Ibid.; p. 585.)

17. Genoud had strong rela­tion­ships with many Nazis oper­at­ing in Mid­dle East­ern coun­tries.  (Idem.)

18. Genoud worked with a num­ber of Mid­dle East­ern Nation­al­ist groups fight­ing against Israel, includ­ing the Pop­u­lar Front for the Lib­er­a­tion of Pales­tine.  (Ibid.; p. 586.)

19. In addi­tion to the noto­ri­ous Car­los the Jack­al, (alleged­ly trained by Frank Ter­pil), Genoud devel­oped a liai­son with the Red Army Faction/Baader Mein­hoff gang, with which Mahler was asso­ci­at­ed.  Genoud was also on excel­lent pro­fes­sion­al terms with Ali Has­san Salameh.  (Ibid.; p. 587.)

20. Final­ly, Genoud suc­cess­ful­ly lob­bied Mid­dle East­ern gov­ern­ments to approve Paul Dick­opf as head of Inter­pol.  (Ibid.; p. 588.)

21. Under Dick­opf (who head­ed Inter­pol at the time of the Olympics mas­sacre) was less than vig­or­ous in pur­su­ing ter­ror­ists such as Salameh.  (Idem.)  (For more about Inter­pol, see RFA#2.)

22. Final­ly, the pro­gram con­cludes with analy­sis of the PFLP’s role in the assas­si­na­tion of the Israeli tourism min­is­ter, an act that fur­ther inflamed the already volatile Israeli-Pales­tin­ian ques­tion.  (“Israel Wants Arafat to Hand Over Assas­sins” by Michael Matza; San Jose Mer­cury News; 10/18/2001; p. 6A.)  Not­ing the PFLP’s fascist/Nazi links, their action at this point in time is note­wor­thy.

  2. Ger­many: 1980 Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing a ‘far-right attack’
    https://p.dw.com/p/3ew1m Deutsche Welle (DW). 08.07.2020

    The most impor­tant points stat­ed in the arti­cle were

    - “The attack­er who car­ried out the dead­ly 1980 Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing in Munich was moti­vat­ed by far-right ide­ol­o­gy, fed­er­al pros­e­cu­tors said. The attack­er, Gun­dolf Köh­ler who was one of the 13 killed, in the bomb­ing want­ed to influ­ence the 1980 par­lia­men­tary elec­tion. He strived for a dic­ta­to­r­i­al state in the image of nation­al social­ism,” report­ed the Süd­deutsche Zeitung, quot­ing a senior inves­ti­ga­tor. “

    - “Fed­er­al pros­e­cu­tors found that Köh­ler trained with the banned neo-Nazi mili­tia group “Wehrsport­gruppe Hoff­mann,” whose mem­bers had fre­quent­ly been accused of far-right vio­lence. He also had a pic­ture of for­mer Nazi leader Hitler hang­ing above his bed.”

    - “Ger­man author­i­ties have been accused of down­play­ing the dan­ger posed by far-right extrem­ism”

    - “The Ger­man mil­i­tary has also faced accu­sa­tions that it tol­er­ates right-wing extrem­ism.”

    - “Inte­ri­or Min­is­ter Horst See­hofer has since declared far-right extrem­ism the “biggest secu­ri­ty threat fac­ing Ger­many.”

    What the arti­cle does not say is that this has been a con­tin­u­ous pat­tern of pos­si­ble sup­port for these Nazi Ter­ror­ists and a clear pat­tern of cov­er-up going back to the Mur­der of Israeli Ter­ror­ists in the 1972 Munich Olympics to this day, the 1980 Octo­ber­fest bomb­ings, through 9/11 with the Ham­burg Cell to this day.
