[8]Intro­duc­tion: Con­tro­ver­sy in both Israel and the Unit­ed States has sur­round­ed the impend­ing appear­ance by Ben­jamin Netanyahu before the U.S. Con­gress. The appear­ance stems from an invi­ta­tion by House Speak­er John Boehn­er, who was obvi­ous­ly mov­ing to under­cut and embarass Barack Oba­ma.

Like the GOP [9], which has incor­prat­ed fas­cists and Nazis [10] into its ranks, the Likud Par­ty of Ben­jamin Netanyahu is no stranger to fas­cism.

This broad­cast reviews and updates past and present links between the Israeli right-wing and fas­cist ele­ments of var­i­ous stripes.

Ben­jamin Netanyahu’s polit­i­cal views have evolved from those of his father [11], who was per­son­al sec­re­tary to Vladimir Jabotin­sky [12], head of the Betar, a fas­cist ele­ment with­in the Zion­ist move­ment.

Excerpt­ing Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M30 [13], the pro­gram sets forth the fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy of “Ze’ev” (nee “Vladimir” Jabotin­sky). (The pro­gram was record­ed in the fall of 1983.) The text is excerpt­ed from Alexan­der Cock­burn’s arti­cle “His­to­ry as the Pro­pa­gan­da of the Vic­tors” [14] in The Vil­lage Voice of 10/12/1982.

The pro­gram notes that Jabotin­sky’s Betar: took mil­i­tary train­ing under the aus­pices of Mus­soli­ni; had its cadre reviewed by Il Duce; saw their alliance with Mus­soli­ni as one of ide­ol­o­gy not mere con­ve­nience; sup­port­ed Mus­solin­i’s inva­sion of Ethiopia; felt that Zion­ism should man­i­fest itself as a form of fas­cism (under­scor­ing the supe­ri­or­i­ty of Euro­pean peo­ples over the dark­er-skinned races).

Links between the Likud and Ital­ian fas­cism have con­tin­ued to this day. Next, we review the dis­cus­sion of a 1998 con­gress of the AN, the Ital­ian Fas­cist Par­ty that is the direct lin­eal descen­dant of and heir to Mussolini’s black­shirts. Present at that meet­ing were GOP Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bob Young, rep­re­sent­ing the Repub­li­can Par­ty, and Udi Cohen, rep­re­sent­ing the Likud Par­ty of Ben­jamin Netanyahu. (This excerpt is tak­en from FTR #94 [15], record­ed on 5/5/1998.)

The recent meet­ing [16] of an Israeli cab­i­net min­is­ter with a promi­nent Swedish fas­cist is the lat­est exam­ple of a long-stand­ing fea­ture of the behav­ior of that country’s polit­i­cal right wing. Israelis and Zion­ists from the right side of the polit­i­cal spec­trum have main­tained con­tact and inter­ac­tion with ele­ments of the fas­cist inter­na­tion­al. In par­tic­u­lar, mem­bers of the Likud and oth­er Israeli far-right par­ties have con­ducted polit­i­cal inter­face [15] with Euro­pean Nazis and fas­cists.

Anoth­er right-wing Israeli polit­i­cal con­tin­gent has reached out to Euro­pean fas­cists. Com­muning with Russ­ian fas­cists, the “Nation­al Uni­ty” bloc has impressed the leader of the Nation­al Demo­c­ra­tic Alliance, who feels the two groups have much in com­mon.

Fol­low­ing on the heels of an Iraeli deputy minister’s schmooz­ing [17] with a promi­nent Swedish neo-fas­cist financier [16], Aryeh Eldad’s hob­nob­bing with Ilya Lazarenko per­pet­u­ates [15] the dis­turb­ing pat­tern of Zionist/fascist inter­face [18] dat­ing back to the pre-World War II peri­od.

Recap­ping more mate­r­i­al from Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M30 [13], the pro­gram details the abortive rela­tion­ship between the Haganah and the SS. Pri­or to the Wannsee Con­fer­ence and the com­mence­ment of the “Final Solu­tion,” the SS and the Haganah actu­al­ly formed an alliance to coop­er­ate in pro­mot­ing Jew­ish emi­gra­tion to Pales­tine. This abort­ed coop­er­a­tion was adopt­ed to make Ger­many “Juden­rein” (“Jew-Free”) and to dri­ve a wedge into the British hold­ings in the Mid­dle East.

We con­clude by look­ing at the influ­ence of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work [19] in Israel. Con­tribut­ing both direct­ly from Latin Amer­i­ca and through dona­tions made through Jew­ish busi­ness­men incor­po­rat­ed into the Bor­mann machine, the net­work is among the clan­des­tine play­ers in Israeli pol­i­tics.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Pre-war net­work­ing between Adolph Eich­mann [20] and ele­ments of the Haganah; review of the GOP’s Nazi ele­ment; review of the role of Otto von Bolschwing [21] in form­ing the GOP’s Nazi ele­ment; a syn­op­tic overview on the absur­di­ty of call­ing Israel and/or the Zion­ist move­ment as a whole “fas­cist.”

1a. Ben­jamin Netanyahu’s polit­i­cal views have evolved from those of his father, who was per­son­al sec­re­tary to Vladi­mi Jabotin­sky, head of the Betar, a fas­cist ele­ment with­in the Zion­ist move­ment.

“Ben-Zion Netanyahu Dies at 102: Father of Israeli Prime Min­is­ter” by Bat­she­va Sobel­man; Los Ange­les Times; 5/01/2012. [11]

His­to­ri­an Ben-Zion Netanyahu, the father of Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Netanyahu and the man said to have had the most pro­found influ­ence on the con­ser­v­a­tive Israeli leader, died ear­ly Mon­day in his Jerusalem home. He was 102.

The elder Netanyahu served as the per­son­al sec­re­tary of Zion­is­m’s promi­nent Revi­sion­ist leader, Zeev Jabotin­sky, in the Unit­ed States dur­ing World War II, lob­by­ing for the cre­ation of a Jew­ish state. He also pur­sued his aca­d­e­m­ic work, spe­cial­iz­ing in medieval Span­ish Jew­ry and the roots of the Span­ish Inqui­si­tion.

Many attribute the prime min­is­ter’s deep con­vic­tions and inter­est in his­to­ry to his father’s unwa­ver­ing hawk­ish beliefs; the Revi­sion­ist move­ment dif­fered sharply from the social­ist Zion­ists of the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry and did not believe in par­ti­tion­ing what was Pales­tine dur­ing the British man­date into sep­a­rate Jew­ish and Arab states. . . .

1b. More about the influ­ence of the elder Netanyahu on his son:

“Received Wis­dom? How the Ide­ol­o­gy of Netanyahu’s Late Father Influ­enced the Son” by Karl Vick; Time; 5/02/2012. [12]

. . . .But in recent decades Israeli pol­i­tics came to be dom­i­nat­ed by the Likud, the par­ty found­ed on the phi­los­o­phy of Ze’ev Jabotinksy, the man Ben­zion Netanyahu went to Amer­i­ca to serve as sec­re­tary, and whose vision he car­ried on after Jabotinsky’s death. The ide­ol­o­gy called for a “Greater Israel [22]” that stretched across not only the West Bank but even across what is today Jor­dan,  land regard­ed as promised to the Jews in the view of Revi­sion­ist Zion­ism, as the move­ment was known. It was a robust, even mil­i­taris­tic move­ment that called for an “iron wall” between the new­ly found­ed state and the Arabs sur­round­ing it. . . .

Note that Ayoob Kara also met with the head of the Aus­trian Free­dom Par­ty [23], the neo-fas­cist par­ty for­merly head­ed up by Jurg Haider.

“Deputy Min­is­ter Meets neo-Nazi Mil­lion­aire” by Eldad Beck; ynet­news.com; 7/4/2011. [16]

 Deputy Min­is­ter Ayoob Kara met with Swedish-Ger­man mil­lion­aire Patrik Brinkmann who has ties with Ger­man neo-Nazi groups in Berlin over the week­end, Yedio­th Ahronoth report­ed.

Brinkmann, who is try­ing to estab­lish a far-right anti-Islam­ic par­ty in Ger­many claims he is not an anti-Semi­te, how­ever his pre­vi­ous close con­tacts with the Ger­man neo-Nazi par­ty (NPD) and his past mem­ber­ship in anoth­er neo-Nazi par­ty raise ques­tions regard­ing his ide­ol­o­gy.

Brinkmann, 44, made his for­tune in the Swedish real estate busi­ness in the 1980s before becom­ing mixed in tax prob­lems in his home coun­try. As legal bat­tles were going on he used the major­ity of his finances for the estab­lish­ment of two research foun­da­tions which became close­ly affil­i­ated with far-right and neo-Nazi ele­ments in Ger­many. . . .

. . . Sev­eral months ago, Kara met with Aus­trian Free­dom Par­ty leader Heinz-Chris­t­ian Stra­che who was once active in neo-Nazi groups.  . . .

“The Unholy Alliance: How Israeli Wingnuts Befriend­ed Russ­ian Hitlerophiles” by Sergey Romanov; Lit­tle Green Foot­balls; 7/14/2011. [24]

Russ­ian nation­al­ists met in Israel with right-wing Zion­ists.

One of the lead­ers of Russia’s Nation­al Demo­c­ra­tic Alliance, who vis­ited Israel togeth­er with his col­leagues at the invi­ta­tion of reli­gious-right-wing Zion­ists, came to the con­clu­sion that the two polit­i­cal forces have a lot in com­mon ...

Since last week, in Israel there is a group of mod­er­ate [eth­nic] Russ­ian nation­al­ists from Rus­sia, arrived here at the invi­ta­tion of the reli­gious-right bloc “Ihud ha-Leu­mi” (“Nation­al Uni­ty”). The lead­ers of an inter­re­gional pub­lic asso­ci­a­tion of the Nation­al Demo­c­ra­tic Alliance (estab­lished in March 2010) made sev­eral trips to the Holy Land, vis­ited the Knes­set, and the memo­r­ial com­plex “Yad Vashem”. Fol­low­ing the vis­it, co-chair­man of the move­ment Ilya Lazarenko came to the con­clu­sion that the Russ­ian nation­al­ists and right-wing Zion­ists have much in com­mon. “We are very much in com­mon, and first of all — rejec­tion of vio­lent Islamism, which is a threat to civ­i­liza­tion — he said to the por­tal IzRus. — We also have some ide­o­log­i­cal over­lap asso­ci­ated with the objec­tives of nation-build­ing and its oper­a­tion.” . . . .

5. Recap­ping more mate­r­i­al from Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M30 [13], the pro­gram details the abortive rela­tion­ship between the Haganah and the SS. Pri­or to the Wannsee Con­fer­ence and the com­mence­ment of the “Final Solu­tion,” the SS and the Haganah actu­al­ly formed an alliance to coop­er­ate in pro­mot­ing Jew­ish emi­gra­tion to Pales­tine. This abort­ed coop­er­a­tion was adopt­ed to make Ger­many “Juden­rein” (“Jew-Free”) and to dri­ve a wedge into the British hold­ings in the Mid­dle East.

Two of the key SS offi­cers involved in coor­di­nat­ing this alliance were Adolph Eich­mann [20] and Otto von Bolschwing. [25]

6a. Bor­man­n’s busi­ness oper­a­tions have includ­ed Jew­ish par­tic­i­pants as a mat­ter of strate­gic intent. In turn, this has giv­en the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion con­sid­er­able influ­ence in Israel. The excerpts are read from FTR #305 [26].

Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile; Paul Man­ning; Copy­right 1981 [HC]; Lyle Stu­art Inc.; ISBN 0–8184–0309–8; pp. 226–227. [27]

. . . .Since the found­ing of Israel, the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many had paid out 85.3 bil­lion marks, by the end of 1977, to sur­vivors of the Holo­caust. East Ger­many ignores any such lia­bil­i­ty. From South Amer­i­ca, where pay­ment must be made with sub­tle­ty, the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion has made a sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion. It has drawn many of the bright­est Jew­ish busi­ness­men into a par­tic­i­pa­to­ry role in the devel­op­ment of many of its cor­po­ra­tions, and many of these Jews share their pros­per­i­ty most gen­er­ous­ly with Israel. If their pro­pos­als are sound, they are even pro­vid­ed with a spe­cial­ly dis­pensed ven­ture cap­i­tal fund. I spoke with one Jew­ish busi­ness­man in Hart­ford, Con­necti­cut. He had arrived there quite unknown sev­er­al years before our con­ver­sa­tion, but with Bor­mann mon­ey as his lever­age. Today he is more than a mil­lion­aire, a qui­et leader in the com­mu­ni­ty with a cer­tain share of his prof­its ear­marked, as always, for his ven­ture cap­i­tal bene­fac­tors. This has tak­en place in many oth­er instances across Amer­i­ca and demon­strates how Bor­man­n’s peo­ple oper­ate in the con­tem­po­rary com­mer­cial world, in con­trast to the fan­ci­ful non­sense with which Nazis are described in so much ‘lit­er­a­ture.’ So much empha­sis is placed on select Jew­ish par­tic­i­pa­tion in Bor­mann com­pa­nies that when Adolf Eich­mann was seized and tak­en to Tel Aviv to stand tri­al, it pro­duced a shock wave in the Jew­ish and Ger­man com­mu­ni­ties of Buenos Aires. Jew­ish lead­ers informed the Israeli author­i­ties in no uncer­tain terms that this must nev­er hap­pen again because a rep­e­ti­tion would per­ma­nent­ly rup­ture rela­tions with the Ger­mans of Latin Amer­i­ca, as well as with the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, and cut off the flow of Jew­ish mon­ey to Israel. It nev­er hap­pened again, and the pur­suit of Bor­mann qui­et­ed down at the request of these Jew­ish lead­ers. He is resid­ing in an Argen­tine safe haven, pro­tect­ed by the most effi­cient Ger­man infra­struc­ture in his­to­ry as well as by all those whose pros­per­i­ty depends on his well-being. Per­son­al invi­ta­tion is the only way to reach him. . . .

6b. The pro­gram relates an inci­dent in which orga­nized crime king­pin Mey­er Lan­sky tried to black­mail the Bor­mann group, which result­ed in his removal from Israel.

Ibid.; pp.227–228. [27]

. . . . .A reveal­ing insight into this inter­na­tion­al finan­cial and indus­tri­al net­work was giv­en me by a mem­ber of the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion resid­ing in West Ger­many. Mey­er Lan­sky, he said, the finan­cial advi­sor to the Las Vegas—Miami under­world sent a mes­sage to Bor­mann through my West Ger­man SS con­tact. Lan­sky promised that if he received a piece of Bor­man­n’s action he would keep the Israeli agents off Bor­man­n’s back. ‘I have a very good rela­tion with the Israeli secret police’ was his claim, although he was to be kicked out of Israel when his pres­ence became too noted—and also at the urg­ing of Bor­man­n’s secu­ri­ty chief in South Amer­i­ca. At the time Lan­sky was in the pent­house suite of Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, in which he owned stock. He had fled to Israel to evade a U.S. fed­er­al war­rant for his arrest. He sent his mes­sage to Bor­mann through his bag man in Switzer­land, John Pull­man, also want­ed in the Unit­ed States on a fed­er­al war­rant. Lan­sky told Pull­man to make this offer ‘which he can’t refuse.’ The offer was for­ward­ed to Buenos Aires, where it was greet­ed with laugh­ter. When the laugh­ter died down, it was replaced with action. Mey­er was evict­ed from Israel and was told by Swiss author­i­ties to stay out of their coun­try, so he flew to South Amer­i­ca. There he offered any pres­i­dent who would give him asy­lum a cool $1 mil­lion in cash. He was turned down every­where and had to con­tin­ue his flight to Mia­mi, where U.S. mar­shals, alert­ed, were wait­ing to take him into cus­tody. . . .
