COMMENT: In a disturbing echo of the 1930’s, the severe economic distress in Greece is feeding far-right violence and sentiment. People pushed over the brink by the Great Depression turned in their desperation to fascism. We should expect similar phenomena with the world again plunging into economic ruin.
As discussed in FTR #746 , the Greek crisis has benefited Germany enormously. The German core corporations are controlled by the Bormann capital network , the economic component of a Third Reich gone underground .
Was economic collapse and social dislocation a deliberate goal, in order to precipitate the sort of violence we have seen in Norway and now Greece?
The Underground Reich has masterfully manipulated the world’s political landscape, with its Islamofascist ally the Muslim Brotherhood garnering publicity as victims, even as their presence promotes and provokes overt fascist violence. A textbook example of this was the “9/11 Mosque” controversy , in which the apparent Muslim Brotherhood operative Faisal Abdul Rauf was able to reap wonderful publicity, as the opponents of the mosque  made the mistake of associating themselves with fascist elements like the English Defense League  and the Sweden Democrats.
Unfortunately, it seems that most of the opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood are too Goddamned stupid and/or venal to figure this out!
EXCERPT: They descended by the hundreds — black-shirted, bat-wielding youths chasing down dark-skinned immigrants through the streets of Athens and beating them senseless in an unprecedented show of force by Greece’s far-right extremists.
In Greece, alarm is rising that the twin crises of financial meltdown and soaring illegal immigration are creating the conditions for a right-wing rise — and the Norway massacre on Monday drove authorities to beef up security.
The move comes amid spiraling social unrest that has unleashed waves of rioting and vigilante thuggery on the streets of Athens. The U.N.‘s refugee agency warns that some Athens neighborhoods have become zones where “fascist groups have established an odd lawless regime.”
Greek police on Monday said they have increased security checks at Muslim prayer houses and other immigrant sites in response to the Norway shooting rampage that claimed 77 lives.
“There has been an increase in monitoring at these sites since the events occurred in Norway,” said police spokesman Thanassis Kokkalakis.
Greece’s fears are shared across Europe. Last week, EU counterterror officials held an emergency meeting in Brussels on ways to combat right-wing violence and rising Islamophobia, warning of a “major risk” of Norway copycats.
The massacre by Anders Behring Breivik prompted continent-wide soul-searching about whether authorities have neglected the threat of right-wing extremists as they focus on jihadist terror.
Greece, however, may be particularly worrisome because of the intersection of extreme economic distress and rampant illegal immigration, which can create fertile ground for the rise of rightist movements. Immigrant scapegoating has been rife here as unemployment balloons amid economic catastrophe. . . .
