FTR #795 Fascism, Hindu Nationalism and Narendra Modi

Prime Min­is­ter-elect Naren­dra Modi, with a polit­i­cal back­ground in a Hin­du nation­al­ist par­ty with strong fas­cist roots, is now in charge of the world’s sec­ond largest coun­try and the world’s largest democ­ra­cy. Naren­dra Modi belonged to the RSS, an orga­ni­za­tion with an his­tor­i­cal affin­i­ty for Nazism and fas­cism. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on anti-Mus­lim fer­vor in India, RSS has gen­er­at­ed much grav­i­tas. Modi has been impli­cat­ed in com­plic­i­ty in lethal anti-Mus­lim riot­ing in India. In addi­tion to anti-colo­nial sen­ti­ment that pit­ted Indi­an nation­al­ists against the British Raj pri­or to World War II, Nazism and Hin­du phi­los­o­phy also found com­mon ground in ele­ments of “Aryan” mys­ti­cism. Many ele­ments of the Brah­min caste also found affin­i­ty with the elit­ist and anti-demo­c­ra­t­ic phi­los­o­phy of Mus­solin­i’s fas­cism as well.


FTR #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­ar­ly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-loot­ed art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.


The Great Mail Train Robbery, Ronald Biggs and the Underground Reich

The recent deaths of two of the rob­bers from Britain’s Great Mail Train Rob­bery call to mind an impor­tant part of that crime that has been obscured. In FTR #83, we not­ed the alleged role of SS com­man­do-chief and ODESSA oper­a­tive Otto Sko­rzeny in the Great Mail Train Rob­bery, as it has been known. (Recent­ly deceased rob­ber Ronald Big­gs is seen above, at right.)


Luxembourg Prime Minister Resigns: Luxembourg Gladio Veteran Involved in Bugging Scandal

For decades, we’ve spo­ken of “The Strat­e­gy of Ten­sion,” over­lap­ping the NATO Oper­a­tion Stay Behind (known as Glad­io in Italy.) The Prime Min­is­ter of Lux­em­bourg was forced to resign because of a scan­dal in which the coun­try’s intel­li­gence chief–now head of secu­ri­ty for Siemens–participated in Gladio/Stay Behind. Lux­em­bourg’s bank­ing sec­tor is very large, to the dis­may of Ger­many, which has been called “hege­mon­ic” by Lux­em­bourg cab­i­net min­is­ters.


Ratzinger’s Vatican Benefactor

Before becom­ing Pope, Josef Ratzinger had a Vat­i­can pedi­gree reveal­ing him to be close­ly linked to the Vatican/Nazi escape and assis­tance orga­ni­za­tions. One of Ratzinger’s bene­fac­tors dur­ing his rise through the Vat­i­can ranks was Car­di­nal Josef Frings of Cologne, who worked close­ly with the post­war SS infra­struc­ture to deflect pun­ish­ment for con­vict­ed war crim­i­nals. The course of Ratzinger’s papa­cy, par­tic­u­lar­ly his actions short­ly after announc­ing his res­ig­na­tion, is con­sis­tent with the career vec­tor he estab­lished with Frings.

Were the descen­dants of World War II Nazis liv­ing in Argenti­na involved with the AMIA bomb­ing?


Is Germany’s Domestic Intelligence Agency Protecting neo-Nazis?

Sup­pos­ed­ly mon­i­tor­ing neo-Nazis, Ger­many’s domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice appears to be pro­tect­ing their killers instead.


Heinrich Himmler’s Daughter STILL Actively Aiding Nazi War Criminals

Com­ment: Among the orga­ni­za­tions aid­ing the escape and sup­port of Nazi war crim­i­nals is Stille Hil­fe (“Silent Help”). Head­ed by Hein­rich Himm­ler’s Daughter–Gudrun Burwitz–the orga­ni­za­tion con­tin­ues to func­tion. Among the sup­port­ers of the orga­ni­za­tion were Car­di­nal Frings, a Catholic prelate who had much to do with the rise of Joseph Ratzinger to be Pope. The […]


Germany Keeping Eichmann Files Secret for 50 (More) Years

Com­ment: Why would this be nec­es­sary? Among the pos­si­bil­i­ties is the polit­i­cal sen­si­tiv­i­ty deriv­ing from past employ­ment of Eich­mann and many of his subordinates–and supe­ri­ors–by ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence, includ­ing U.S. and Ger­man intel­li­gence ser­vices. The open­ing of these files would also shed light on the Under­ground Reich and its deriv­a­tive, pro­found eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal […]
