During an interview conducted in the late 1930s (published in 1939), Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychiatry, was asked “…had he any views on what was likely to be the next step in religious development?” Jung said:


We do not know whether Hitler is going to found a new Islam. He is already on the way; he is like Muhammad. The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god. That can be the historic future.

  Nice find Tahoe.  This is happening all over the world.

  In fact there is a new religion developing in America----- Chrislam

  Note to the novice---Rick Warren is CFR.

  The God of the Bible and the God of Islam ARE NOT AND NEVER WERE THE SAME.

Rick Warren Partnering With Mosques To Teach That God And Allah Are The Same

Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, home to super-pastor Rick Warren (Obama inauguration, Purpose Driven Life, etc.) has joined forces with Southern California mosques to adopt a three-step plan for ending enmity between evangelical Christians and Muslims.

The plan’s first step calls for Muslims and Christians to recognize they worship the same God. Interfaith reconciliation has been proceeding for years between Muslims and more liberal-leaning mainline Protestant denominations.

This is the first such effort I’ve heard of by an evangelical mega-church. Many evangelicals regard Islam as Christianity’s number one enemy, and they do not at all agree that the two faiths worship the same God. This is likely to make waves.

The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America’s most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California
mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the
same God.

The effort, informally dubbed King’s Way, caps years of outreach between Warren and Muslims. Warren has broken Ramadan fasts at a Mission Viejo mosque, met Muslim leaders abroad and addressed 8,000 Muslims at a national convention in Washington D.C.

Davos 2015: what’s on the agenda?
By Oliver Cann   
Oct 3 2014

The 45th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, which will take place 21-24 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, is to convene under the theme, The New Global Context.

The theme reflects the period of profound political, economic, social and technological change that the world has entered, which has the potential to end the era of economic integration and international partnership that began in 1989.

Participating in the meeting will be 2,500 leaders, including the heads of 1,000 of the world’s largest and most successful businesses, heads of state or government from the G20 group and other nations, the heads of the world’s foremost international organizations alongside leaders from civil society, labour unions, the world’s major religions, media and the arts. The Forum’s New Champions communities; Young Global Leaders, Global Shapers, Global Growth Companies, Technology Pioneers and Social Entrepreneurs, will also contribute.

The Annual Meeting 2015 will provide a platform for over 50 initiatives that are currently being led by the Forum, with the aim of contributing positive change to the global agenda, as well as those of industry, business and the world’s regions. These include a public-private initiative to help achieve zero net tropical deforestation caused by agricultural commodities by 2020; a multistakeholder endeavour to stimulate more cross-industry and cross-ministry strategic dialogue on ways to strengthen multistakeholder Internet governance ‎and cooperation; and the Forum’s Gender Parity Taskforces, which work with governments worldwide to improve economic opportunity for the female half of the population.

Supporting these endeavours, the Meeting’s programme will feature over 250 sessions, each researched and designed using input from the Forum’s Global Agenda Councils, a network of over 1,500 world-class experts that is focused on identifying and delivering solutions to over 80 individual global challenges. This programme will be more open to the public than ever before, with over 20 televised sessions and an expanded multilingual webcast capability covering 60 sessions, all contributing to a conversation to be played out over social media as well as the Forum’s blog.

Davos-Klosters, Switzerland 21-24 January
The New Global Context

Complexity, fragility and uncertainty are potentially ending an era of economic integration and international partnership that began in 1989. What is clear is that we are confronted by profound political, economic, social and, above all, technological transformations. They are altering long-standing assumptions about our prospects, resulting in an entirely “new global context” for decision-making.

Leaders are looking to strengthen their situation awareness and contextual intelligence. The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting convenes global leaders from across business, government, international organizations, academia and civil society in Davos for strategic dialogues which map the key transformations reshaping the world.

Jeb Bush May Be Making Too Much Money to Bother Running for President
By Kia Makarechi



According to the Times, Bush has worked for or with Lehman Brothers, a soap maker whose books were cooked, and an Affordable Care Act-supporting hospital owner. He has raked in at least $3.2 million from board positions, charges $50,000 for speeches, and is said to be paid more than $1 million a year by Barclays, the firm that absorbed much of Lehman after Bush’s bid to have Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helú save the failing bank.

Independent Commission of Experts
Switzerland – Second World War

Switzerland and Gold Transactions in the Second World War

Interim Report
...

Following a general analysis of Switzerland’s war-time gold transactions, the report accords a
preferential place to the gold shipments of the German Reichsbank to the Swiss National Bank
(Chapter II).


]This is due not only to the fact that these shipments were large and therefore
important, but because they give rise to the most delicate questions. What were the motives of
the Swiss National Bank in continuing its purchases until the very end of the war?
What
interests was it taking into consideration in doing so? Did the National Bank act solely to carry
out monetary policy, or out of larger economic, political, or even personal concerns? Did those
involved in the transactions earn a profit? What did they really know about the doubtful origin
of a large part of the gold they purchased, and did they inform the government in time?


At the same time, the Swiss National Bank also bought gold from the Allies, albeit in a
chronological context that renders any comparison misleading (Chapter III). The origin of this
gold causes no problems. However, other questions emerge. In 1941, Swiss gold in the United
States was frozen and thereby rendered almost useless. What concerns or coercion instigated
purchases from the Allies after this point?
What were the respective roles of the Swiss National
Bank, the Confederation, and the private sector in dealing with Allied financial policy-makers?
How did the Allies use Swiss currency obtained through sales of gold?
...


The Bank Council, whose members represented the interests of various sectors of the economy
and areas of the country, was the highest authority of the SNB. President and Vice- President
of the Council were ex-officio members of the Bank Committee, which exercised close
supervision and control over the business and management of the bank. The Bank Committee
roughly corresponded to a corporation’s board of directors but had less authority and at times,
was unable to prevail in decisive questions against the unified opposition of the Governing
Board.

At the time of World War II, the Bank Committee consisted of seven members. The Chairman
was Gottlieb Bachmann
, the previous Chairman of the Governing Board, with Léon Daguet,
President of the Freiburg Cantonal Bank, serving as Vice-Chairman. The Governing Board
consisted of the chairmen of the three Departments: Ernst Weber (at the same time Chairman
of the Governing Board), Paul Rossy, and Fritz Schnorf. When Schnorf left the SNB in 1942,
he was replaced by Alfred Hirs on the managing board of the Bank.

Henri Matisse, French, 1869 - 1954, Woman Seated in an Armchair, 1940, oil on canvas, Given in loving memory of her husband, Taft Schreiber, by Rita Schreiber, 1989.31.1

Purchased from the artist by (Paul Rosenberg, Paris);[1] (Alexandre Rosenberg, New York)by 1948; sold 1950 to William Somerset Maugham [1874-1965], St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France;[2] (his sale, Sotheby's, London, 10 April 1962, no. 24); Colonel C. Michael Paul, New York; sold 15 January 1970 to Taft B. Schreiber, Beverly Hills [1908-1976];[3] his wife, Rita B. Schreiber, Beverly Hills [d. 1989]; gift 1989 to NGA.

[1] This painting was confiscated by the ERR in 1941 with others from the Rosenberg collection in France (ERR inventory card PR34, National Archives RG260/Property Division/Box 19, copy NGA curatorial files). There is confusion in the archival records as to whether picture was taken from the Rosenberg vault at Libourne or the chateau at Floirac. In the Rosenberg claim file (National Archives RG260/Box 742, copies NGA curatorial files) there are lists and correspondence from Edmond Rosenberg, brother of Paul Rosenberg, which provide conflicting information. However, it seems likely the picture was taken from Floirac, as it was this part of the Rosenberg collection assigned the code "PR." Documents from the National Archives in Washington indicate that the painting was traded by the ERR on 16 November 1943, along with a Bonnard painting from the Kann collection, to the dealer Max Stöcklin in exchange for a painting by Rudolf Alt. (Receipt for the exchange, National Archives RG260/ Box 452, copy NGA curatorial files). The picture seems to be confused throughout the archival documentation with another Matisse painting described as of a woman in a yellow chair, which also appears to have been confiscated from the Rosenberg collection. However this second picture dates from 1939, is in a vertical format, and the woman is nude. On some documents the code PR34 seems to be associated with the 1939 picture, but it is clearly the NGA painting which is described on the ERR card for PR34, and on the receipt for the exchange between Stöcklin and the ERR. Moreoever, the photographs taken by the ERR of confiscated objects illustrate the NGA picture with the code PR34. After Stöcklin, the painting was traced to the Swiss dealer André Martin, and seen on view at the Galerie Neupert in Zurich (See item no. 62 on atachment B to Douglas Cooper's "Report on Mission to Switzerland," 10 December 1945, National Archives RG239/Entry 73/Box 82, copy NGA curatorial files).

 
The NGA picture was returned to the Rosenbergs by 1948, according to the records of the gallery, which sold it to Somerset Maugham in 1950.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_plunder
...

In 1940, an organization known as the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg für die Besetzten Gebiete (The Reichsleiter Rosenberg Institute for the Occupied Territories), or ERR, was formed, headed for Alfred Rosenberg by Gerhard Utikal
.

The first operating unit, the western branch for France, Belgium and the Netherlands, called the Dienststelle Westen (Western Agency), was located in Paris. The chief of this Dienststelle was Kurt von Behr. Its original purpose was to collect Jewish and Freemasonic books and documents, either for destruction, or for removal to Germany for further "study". However, late in 1940, Hermann Göring, who in fact controlled the ERR, issued an order that effectively changed the mission of the ERR, mandating it to seize "Jewish" art collections and other objects. The war loot had to be collected in a central place in Paris, the Museum Jeu de Paume. At this collection point worked art historians and other personnel who inventoried the loot before sending it to Germany. Göring also commanded that the loot would first be divided between Hitler and himself. Hitler later ordered that all confiscated works of art were to be made directly available to him. From the end of 1940 to the end of 1942 Göring traveled twenty times to Paris. In the Museum Jeu de Paume, art dealer Bruno Lohse staged 20 expositions of the newly looted art objects, especially for Göring, from which Göring selected at least 594 pieces for his own collection.[3] Göring made Lohse his liaison-officer and installed him in the ERR in March 1941 as the deputy leader of this unit. Items which Hitler and Göring did not want were made available to other Nazi leaders. Under Rosenberg and Göring's leadership, the ERR seized 21,903 art objects from German-occupied countries

My Grandfather's War: Recovering the Art the Nazis Stole
10/05/2014

Before WWII, Paul Rosenberg was one of Paris’s major art collectors. But after the Nazis invaded, his gallery was occupied and his collection stolen and dispersed
...

Paul discovered one of his paintings by Matisse, Woman in a Yellow Armchair, at the Neupert Gallery in Zurich, where he was even told it was from a private collection
. Going higher up the chain, he went to see Emil Bührle, another dealer, “who was surprised to see me, because he had chosen to believe the rumor that I was dead,” as Paul told the story. Paul then accused him of knowingly buying stolen goods. Bührle replied that he would return them to Fischer if he got his money back. The two dealers tried to bargain with Paul: he could take back 80 percent of his paintings, leaving the rest. “But Rosenberg was on a crusade and wanted an official, government-to-government settlement,” believing that the Swiss government would be willing to negotiate at any price, in order to avoid a scandal.

If my grandfather had to wait for the liberation to find out the extent of the dispersal of his art, as early as 1942 he had been concerned about the fate of stolen paintings all across Europe. He saw it as an attack on the artistic legacy of the war-torn continent. Trying to motivate the Allies, he offered his assistance and cooperation to the profession as a whole, pro bono.

France Returns Paintings To Rightful Owners 68 Years later
Posted about 651 days ago | 0 comment
By Marilyn Z. Tomlins.

On Tuesday, March 19, France returned seven paintings, part of the Nazis’ Second World War loot, to its rightful owners.

....

In November 1999 France did, after having become a signatory of the ‘Washington Conference Principles on Nazi-Confiscated Art’, founded the ‘Commission for the Compensation of Victims of Spoliation Resulting from Anti-Semitic Legislation in Force during the Occupation’ (Commission pour l’indemnisation des victims de spoliations intervenues du fait des législation anti-Semites en vigeur pendant l’Occupation). The Commission’s role is to review the claims for compensation submitted by victims of spoliation. In the first two years the commission had reviewed 7,725 such claims and had paid out €26.43 million ($34.21 million) in compensation to victims. This sum included compensation for property requisitioned by the Germans and bank-related spoliation.

France’s Nazi looters

During the Second World War France had her own Gestapo.

At the head of the French Gestapo was a man named Henri Lafont whose real name was Henri Louis Chamberlin. Thirty-eight years old in 1940 when France fell and having done prison for theft on several occasions he was again under lock and key for draft evasion in a jail in Paris.

The French moved him to an internment camp south of the capital and in the camp he befriended two German Abwehr (Intelligence) men and a Swiss national, one Max Stocklin, also with the Abwehr. The three had been interned along with other German nationals living or present in France.

on France’s declaration of war against the German Third Reich.

The four escaped from the camp and, after having laid low in Paris, on France’s fall and occupation they safely resurfaced.

First ‘Monsieur Henri’, as he was to be known, worked at a warehouse for stolen Jewish property which was run by Stocklin, but quickly the Gestapo scooped him up to found a French Gestapo branch. Then, two months after France’s fall, accompanied by Gestapo men he called in at Fresnes Prison south of Paris and chose 27 of France’s most skilled and ruthless criminals, released them and enrolled them in his brand-new French Gestapo which would soon have one hundred men. They were to arrest and torture and also shoot those who opposed Germany – Jew and non-Jew alike – and round up Jews for deportation to concentration and death camps, and – steal their possessions.

At the Liberation of Paris on August 25, 1944, Henri Lafont, confident that his fellow countrymen would never arrest him, retreated to his farm outside Paris and there, on August 30, he was arrested by French Forces of the Interior (FFI) men who were also known as fifis.

Swiss used the Nazi Germany's enigma machines:

http://www.cryptomuseum.com/crypto/enigma/hist.htm
...
Manufacturers   
 
The first Enigma machines were developed in 1923 by Arthur Scherbius' first company Scherbius und Ritter but were built after the company had been renamed first to Gewerkschaft Securitas and a few years later to Chiffriermaschinen AG. After Scherbius' untimely death in 1929, the company changed hands and in 1933, after the German Army had acquired the manufacturing rights to the Enigma machine, the name was changed once more to Heimsoeth und Rinke.

 As many Enigma machines were needed for the German war effort, other companies were contracted to build the machines under licence. This also reduced the risk of supply problems should any of the manufactures be bombed by the Allies. Apart from Heimsoeth & Rinke in Berlin, military Enigma machines were also manufactured by Olympia in Erfurt, Ertel-Werk in München, Atlas-Werke in Bremen and Konski & Krüger in Berlin. → List of manufacturers



http://www.cryptomuseum.com/crypto/enigma/k/swiss.htm
Swiss-K   
 
Enigma K variant for Switzerland

 The most famous and well-known Enigma K variant is probably the version that was built for the Swiss Army. Although it is not an official name, this machine is often called the Swiss-K. The machines were ordered by the Swiss before WWII and the first batch was delivered in 1939


...
The Swiss started to use the Enigma machine in 1938, when they received 14 Enigma D machines. Another 65 machines were ordered in 1939. Finally, in 1940, a large number of machines were supplied in two batches (5 May and 10 July). These were the machines we now known as the Swiss-K [1] .

 In July 1942, a total of 265 machines was in use, 102 by the Swiss Army and 163 by the Air Force [2] . The machines of the Foreign Ministry were on loan from the Army. Initially, they were all supplied with the standard commercial wiring known from the Enigma D. The Swiss, however, rewired their machines frequently.

...
Modifications   

 After delivery of the Enigma K machines from the manufacturer, the following modifications were carried out by the Kriegsmaterialverwaltung (War Material Procurement) [2] :

•Addition of an extra lamp panel to most of the machines (see below).
•A transformer was added in order to save batteries (PSU, see below).
 
...
Wiring   
 
 All Enigma K machines were delivered by the Germans with the standard commercial wheel wiring, also known from the Enigma D (see the table below). Immediately after reception, however, the Swiss changed the wiring of all cipher wheels. 
...

Breaking the Swiss-K   
 
 In 1941, the Swiss found out that the French had broken some of their Enigma traffic. The machines used by the Swiss Army were subsequently modified by altering the stepping mechanism. The rightmost wheel was made stationary and the middle wheel was made to step with every key press. The leftmost wheel and the UKW would follow in the normal fashion (Enigma stepping). This modification was only present on the Swiss Army machines and not on the machines used by the Air Force and the Foreign Ministry.

 Another safety measure was to rewire the cipher wheels regularly. The machines used by the Foreign Ministry were apparently rewired every two years. Despite this, their Enigma traffic remained to be broken by the allied code breakers. At BP, Colonel Tiltman was able to read Swiss diplomatic traffic from September 1939 onwards [1] whilst the Americans took care of the Swiss codes in their part of the world.

The Germans also broke the Swiss diplomatic codes and were able to read their traffic from 1939 onwards, right until the end of the war. As this was known by the Swiss, they started to develop their own machine. They called it NEMA, for Neue Maschine (new machine). Unfortunately for the Swiss, the machine came too late. It was introduced in 1946, just after the war had ended. 

[ Oh and everything Dulles transmitted was taken by the Nazi's ... ]

Allen Dulles and the compromise of OSS codes in WWII

During the war several organizations run agents in occupied Europe for the allied side. Britain had SIS and SOE and the US had OSS.

The Office of Strategic Services was the predecessor of the CIA and it was headed by General William Donovan. An important person in that organization was Allen Dulles.
...

During the war Dulles joined the OSS and in November 1942 he was sent to Berne, Switzerland to head the OSS station on “Hitler’s doorstep”.
Berne was a hotspot of agent activity both Allied and Axis. The goal of the OSS was to recruit informants and gather intelligence on European affairs. Especially important was the need to recruit German agents to report on that country’s internal condition and policies. The Berne station also had contact with members of the German resistance.


Obviously there was a need for absolute secrecy in communications between the Berne station and Washington. Unfortunately for the Americans it seems some of the OSS communications were read by the Germans and their Finnish and Hungarian allies.
Since OSS was in the business of dealing in secrets such a security compromise must have had important consequences.

The British learned through an agent of theirs that OSS codes were compromised and were distrustful of the OSS organization.

Moreover the OSS people were warned by General Schellenberg of the SD that their codes were being read but instead of doing something about it they decided it was a provocation…

...

Höttl was head of SD foreign intelligence  for Southeastern Europe.


From ‘U.S. intelligence and the Nazis’ by Richard Breitman, p25
By the time the COI became the OSS in 1942, high officials had recognized the value of having a well-stocked base in neutral Switzerland, nearly surrounded by the Axis powers, prepared to defend itself if attacked, but otherwise steering a delicately balanced course. Switzerland had so many economic links with both Germany and Italy that there was bound to be leakage of information through corporate channels. Prominent exiles from Nazi Germany in the country still had lines of information into Berlin. The  Swiss government, the International Red Cross, and the Bank of International Settlements might each yield some Nazi secrets if the right people plied their officials. Dulles had just the right qualifications. He almost left for Switzerland too late the journey was strewn with obstacles, and Dulles barely made it across the French border before Germany shut off this route in response to the Allied invasion of French North Africa. Dulles was given the cover of being special assistant to the American minister in Bern, Leland Harrison. Dulles had regular contact with Embassy officials, including Harrison; he even used some State Department codes when his own facilities for communication with Washington were overloaded.
...

From ‘History of MI-6’, p511:

The potential for disaster was demonstrated by Dulles's first contact with the Abwehr representative, Hans Bernd Gisevius, in January 1943, which he reported back to Washington on a cypher which the British ascertained (through their Polish agent Halina Szymariska) had been broken by the Germans. In the middle of April Dulles told Vanden Heuvel that he had seen Gisevius, who had just returned from Berlin and had told him that forty large flying boats had recently been built in Rotterdam to be used for the heavy bombing of London manned by suicide squads. Despite having been alerted to the problem with the cypher, Dulles had reported this to Washington in two telegrams. Dansey thought that Dulles had been 'stuffed' by a deliberate piece of German disinformation. Clearly agitated, he told Vanden Heuvel: 'could you report to the fool [Dulles] who knows his code was compromised if he has used that code to report meetings with anyone, Germans probably identified persons concerned and use them for stuffing. He swallows easily.

Conclusion

What can we conclude from the information presented so far?

First of all the OSS station used diplomatic codes when their own systems were overloaded or simply for reasons of convenience. The Germans could read State Department codes Gray, Brown, A1, C1 and the M-138 strip. OSS messages enciphered with these systems were vulnerable in 1941-44. This is proven not only by the German testimonies but also the decoded message of Allen Dulles and the messages in the Finnish national archives.
The OSS also had available their own codes, which included a set of M-138 strips in 1944. It is not clear if the Germans could read these.

OSS communications were read not only by the Germans but also by the Finns and the Hungarians. It is not clear what systems the Hungarians could decode. However Höttl praised the work of their codebreakers in his book.
The information we have uncovered so far points to considerable security problems for OSS communications from Berne. The full story however is not known.

The 'Holocaust' and the Failure of Allied and  Jewish Responses: The Logic Of Disbelief
K. C. Gleason
...


It appears, then, that in the intelligence sphere the accounts of mass killings lacked credibility. Even if some analysts suspected that Germans randomly shot Jews, Slavs, Poles and others considered racially inferior by the Reich government, a quantum leap of faith was required to accept tales of Europe-wide extermination.

If the reports had at that time been accorded the respect and credibility they have acquired since the war, some attempt to warn Europe's Jews would almost certainly have been inaugurated. Yet those agencies (the OSS, MI-6, and others) privy to the most secret communications throughout the far-flung Reich failed to attempt even rudimentary leaflet campaigns for this purpose.27

Even American officials like Roswell McClelland, who found the term "deportation" pregnant with evil meaning, kept their suspicions mostly to themselves. "One wonders why... It's something I've never entirely explained to myself," McClelland says in answer to the question of why he didn't mobilize others to act on his "gut feelings."28

McClelland was stationed in Switzerland during the war as War Refugee Board (WRB) representative at the American Consulate in Bern.

In addition to his work on behalf of war refugees, including Jews, he often communicated, he says, with the Switzerland-based OSS chief, Allen Dulles.

McClelland is widely acclaimed for having transmitted to Washington from his post in Bern the report of two Slovakian Jewish escapees from Auschwitz. (This report was later to gain notoriety as the main evidentiary feature of the "WRB Report.") His remarks to this writer on his failure to propose the obvious -- a massive warning campaign for the Jews -- are all the more puzzling for it. They underscore that fact that although some people in rumor-choked Switzerland had a "gut" suspicion that extermination was taking place, their actual behavior did not reflect such concerns. Pressed on his inaction, McClelland offers little. "You had intimations," he recalled rather weakly. "But then you were swept on, and there was a lot of [other] work to do. [The extermination allegations] sort of faded to the background."29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra
Ultra was the designation adopted by British military intelligence in June 1941 for wartime signals intelligence obtained by breaking high-level encrypted enemy radio and teleprinter communications at the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park.[1] Ultra eventually became the standard designation among the western Allies for all such intelligence. The name arose because the intelligence thus obtained was considered more important than that designated by the highest British security classification then used (Most Secret) and so was regarded as being Ultra secret.[2] Several other cryptonyms had been used for such intelligence. British intelligence first designated it Boniface—presumably to imply that it was the result of human intelligence.[citation needed] The U.S. used the codename Magic for its decrypts from Japanese sources.

Nazis in the attic
By Randy Davis

...

THE BUGGING OF WALL STREET

Aarons and Loftus' research, which documents the Dulles brothers' pro-Nazi activities, did not go unnoticed. "Before his death, former Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg granted one of the authors an interview. Justice Goldberg had served in U.S. intelligence during World War II. Although he said little in public, he had collected information on the Dulles boys' activities over the years. His verdict was blunt. 'The Dulles brothers were traitors.' They had betrayed their country, by giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war." (2)

Much of what is now known about the activities of the Dulles brothers and other American Nazi collaborators in banking and industry came as a result of a top-secret joint U.S.-British intelligence program known as the Ultra Project. "Prior to the United States' entry into the war," write Loftus and Aarons, "Roosevelt permitted British intelligence to wiretap American targets.

"According to our sources in the intelligence community, the area of coverage included a good bit of the New York financial district, several floors of Rockefeller Plaza, part of the RCA Building, two prominent clubs, and various shipping firms. . . .

"The wiretap unit reported to Sir William Stephenson, a Canadian electronics genius better known by his code name, 'Intrepid.' From his headquarters in the Rockefeller building, Stephenson's job was to identify U.S. companies that were aiding the Nazis." (3)

"Several months before the United States declared war," continue Loftus and Aarons, "Bill Donovan invited Allen Dulles to head up the New York branch of the Office of the Coordinator of Information (COI), President Roosevelt's new intelligence agency and the precursor to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Its primary mission was to collect information against the Nazis and their collaborators. In other words, Dulles was asked to inform on his own clients in New York. . . ."

"Roosevelt had approved his selection as head of the COI Manhattan branch because he wanted Dulles where the British wiretappers could keep an eye on him. . . .

"One floor below Dulles was Stephenson's wiretap shop. Inside Dulles's operation was one of Roosevelt's spies, Arthur Goldberg . . ." who, "confirmed . . . that Dulles's appointment was a setup. . . .

"Roosevelt was giving Dulles enough rope to hang himself. From Stephenson's Manhattan wiretaps, it is known that Dulles was continuing to work with his German business clients, who wanted to remove Hitler and install a puppet of their own who would make peace with the West while forging an alliance against Stalin. It was to be a kinder, gentler Third Reich, favorably disposed to American financial interests. . . . (4)

"The wiretap evidence against Dulles originally was collected by a special section of Operation Safehaven, the U.S. Treasury Department's effort to trace the movement of stolen Nazi booty towards the end of the war. Roosevelt and Treasury Secretary Henry Morganthau had set up Dulles by giving him the one assignment - intelligence chief in Switzerland - where he would be most tempted to aid his German clients with their money laundering."

Roosevelt had one thing in mind: "The sudden release of the Safehaven intercepts would force a public outcry to bring treason charges against those British and American businessmen who aided the enemy in time of war." Among the targets were Allen Dulles, Henry Ford, and other U.S. industrialists. (5)

The plan failed, however, due to Dulles being "tipped off . . . that he was under surveillance" in time to cover his tracks. One possible source of the leak was Vice President Henry Wallace, "who constantly shared information with his brother-in-law, the Swiss minister in Washington during the war."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordelia_Hood
Cordelia Hood (née Dodson) (1913–2011) was an American counter-intelligence agent with the Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S.) during the Second World War and was employed by the Central Intelligence Agency for similar work during the Cold War.

A native of Portland, Oregon, Cordelia Dodson graduated from Reed College in 1936 and then completed a Master's Degree in German at Reed.

She married a fellow CIA officer William J. Hood, who was chief of station in Frankfurt and later West Berlin during the 1950s. Trento in his research found that Mrs. Hood was considered a very competent officer.

She later divorced Hood, but remained in the CIA until she retired in 1970. After that she continued to work on contract with the CIA for another decade.

She died of respiratory failure at her home in Damariscotta, Maine on July 14, 2011.

Sisterhood of Spies: The Women of the OSS
 By Elizabeth P. McIntosh


http://www.reed.edu/reed_magazine/in-memoriam/obituaries/december2011/cordelia-dodson-hood-1936.html
...
Cordelia earned an MA from Reed and went to Washington, D.C., where she got a job in the Military Intelligence Department. “I was so upset about what was happening in Europe that I wanted to help in some way.” She was then recruited into the Office of Strategic Services. Her knowledge of German and French brought her into intelligence and counterintelligence work with future CIA director Allen Dulles in Berne, Switzerland.

Fieldwork for the OSS involved incredible challenges, such as transporting prisoners via secret night flights and using “ultra material,” including the Enigma cryptographic machine in London. “So many things I did at that time, I did without thinking; I just didn’t have time to think about fear.” (Her work was mentioned in the book Sisterhood of Spies: The Women of the OSS.)

In Switzerland, she met her future husband, fellow OSS operative William J. Hood. Following the war, the couple worked in Vienna for the newly formed CIA. Cordelia’s intelligence duties took her to various locations in central and western Europe until 1980, when she retired to a home at Pemaquid Point, on the coast of Maine. Her marriage to William dissolved in 1975. “Reed stayed very much with me, and what training I had in using my brain and  examining what I was being told was very useful in working in the intelligence world. It’s thinking habits that are very important, to be analytical and seeking as much factual material as you can find, which is what you wind up doing if you’re an analyst in the intelligence world. You’re trying to find facts and you’re trying to find information that your opposing country doesn’t want you to find.” Cordelia moved to Damariscotta in 1998 to live with her beloved sister, who survives her.

This WWII Vet Wore A Fur Coat
By Joe Gelarden
Wednesday, November 4, 2009


As the nation pauses to remember and honor the military veterans, especially those of "the Greatest Generation," they might take a moment to offer thanks to women, like the tiny Damariscotta woman who spent World War II in London, France, and Switzerland serving her country.

Cordelia Hood, now 93, sometimes wore a fur coat when she parlayed her talent for languages (French and German), a bit of spunk, and a lot of brains into a job with the OSS.

She was a spy.

As the bombs and buzz bombs rained down on London, she learned to sleep despite the racket and danger. Later she boarded a secret flight into France with Chuck Yeager, and worked for American spymaster Allen Dulles in Switzerland.

Along the way, she had several adventures that would make James Bond sit up and take notice, like her adventure with a college pal, and frequent dancing partner, Italian fashion designer Emilio Pucci (yes, that Pucci).

As the war wound down, Pucci, a member of an old and powerful Italian family, sought American help as he tried to smuggle Mussolini's eldest daughter and her kids out of Italy, after the Germans executed her husband, a former Italian foreign minister.

Dulles, who later headed the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), wanted to get his hands on the former foreign minister's diary, she said. "Mr. Dulles wanted information out of the diary to use at the Nuremberg war trials of German leaders," she said.

When she speaks of Dulles, she always calls him Mister Dulles.

She said she had known Pucci from college where they were both skiers. He later became an Italian Air Force pilot then switched sides toward the end of the war.

"Emilio was a dashing character and a beautiful dancer. We loved to dance. He was very mad when I married my husband (another Office of Strategic Services (OSS) agent)," she said with a twinkle in her eye.

Cordelia Hood was in her 20s and attending a German college when the Nazi's took over.

Her father wanted her to come back to the states. Instead, she took a river cruise and went skiing.

When she finally came back to Washington, D.C., her language skills took her to the Pentagon. When she figured out she could go back to Europe, she signed on with the OSS, the main American intelligence gathering organization. It was the forerunner of the CIA.

In London, she worked on several top-secret projects becoming one of the few people that knew the British had captured a super secret German cipher machine known as "Enigma."

"We were able to break the German Naval codes. This saved thousands of American lives and hundreds of ships. Breaking the Luftwaffe's secret code allowed us to pin point their air attacks," she said.

In London, she said she worked in a big building that had been bombed so many times, the winter wind blew through the cracks in the walls. When she and her friends got off work in the evening, the streetlights were off so they walked with flashlights on the way to the station where they rode the underground (subway) home.
...

"My friend and I gathered all the oranges up. When we went to the underground stations, we placed an orange next to each sleeping child. It was the least we could do," she said.

She still remembers the "doodlebugs," the V-1 flying rocket bombs that targeted London. "You would hear their motors. When they shut off, you dove into a doorway or some other cover. That was when they glided down and exploded. Later, when the V-2 rockets were shot at London for the first time, British officials tried to conceal their existence by telling the public the explosions were gas mains blowing up.

"They were terrible. One landed on an area where American soldiers like to go. Awful," she said shaking her head.

After a while in London, she was ordered to Switzerland, where Dulles was the station chief.

She flew into Lyon on a midnight mission to deliver two former German POWs into Switzerland. The two were on a mission to sneak into Germany to measure the height of the Rhine River as part of the preparations for the Allied invasion.

She flew on the same plane with Chuck Yeager, an American ace fighter pilot who later was the first man to fly faster than the speed of sound.

"The fighting was still going on. The runway was potholed from bombs. Yeager praised the pilot, an injured fighter pilot doing duty flying a transport, for his skill. Yeager said he did it despite having a belly full of shrapnel," she said.

The Americans in Switzerland were supposed to send a car for her and the two Germans, but the Battle of the Bulge broke out and they were afraid they would get stopped so they stayed home. The situation called for a bit of initiative, she explained.

"I thumbed a ride with a GI for myself, and my two German speakers.

"I had to keep them from speaking German. You see, the French hated the Germans and everybody thought there were still a lot of German infiltrators around. You are going to get us shot if you don't quit speaking German," she said she told the two.

Along the way, the GI told her to sit in the front seat. If the border guards stopped us, he told her to pretend she was his French girlfriend.  "I was wearing my grey fur coat and looked the part," she said.

Although Switzerland was a neutral country, the Germans were permitted to do anything they wanted as long as they did not do anything against the Swiss. So could the Americans.

One of her chores was to find clothing for downed US pilots.
"They would land their crippled ships in Switzerland, and the Swiss would confiscate all war materials, including the pilot's flying suits. Sometimes they were left only their skivvies," she laughed.

After the war, she said the OSS became the CIA. She and her husband moved to Europe as they worked as Cold War warriors. "We started working against the Germans, but all along, we were working against the Russians. They were our allies, but were working against us all along," she said.

Along the way, she and her husband, a Portland, Maine native, bought a house at Pemaquid Point. When they divorced, she got the Maine house.

Today, the retired spy lives with her sister on the banks of the Damariscotta River where she recently reflected on her long career in the intelligence community.

"I met such interesting people," she said. "It was fascinating work. That is all I can say."

Evita, Swiss & the Nazis
By Georg Hodel

This story is based, in part, on a Swiss German-language documentary directed by Frank Garbely and entitled "Evitas Geheimnis - Die Schweizer Reise."

On June 6, 1947, Argentina's first lady Eva Peron left for a glittering tour of Europe.

The glamorous ex-actress was feted in Spain, kissed the ring of Pope Pius XII at the Vatican and hobnobbed with the rich-and-famous in the mountains of Switzerland.

Eva Peron, known as "Evita" by her adoring followers, was superficially on a trip to strengthen diplomatic, business and cultural ties between Argentina and important leaders of Europe.

But there was a parallel mission behind the high-profile trip, one that has contributed to a half century of violent extremism in Latin America.

According to records now emerging from Swiss archives and the investigations of Nazi hunters, an unpublicized side of Evita's world tour was coordinating the network for helping Nazis relocate in Argentina.
...
Besides blemishing the Evita legend, the evidence threatens to inflict more damage on Switzerland's image for plucky neutrality. The international banking center is still staggering from disclosures about its wartime collaboration with Adolf Hitler and Swiss profiteering off his Jewish victims.

The archival records indicate that Switzerland's assistance to Hitler's henchmen didn't stop with the collapse of the Third Reich.

And the old Swiss-Argentine-Nazi connection reaches to the present in another way. Spanish "superjudge" Baltasar Garzon is seeking to open other Swiss records on bank accounts controlled by Argentine military officers who led the so-called "Dirty War" that killed and "disappeared" tens of thousands of Argentines between 1976-83.

...


Newly released documents from Argentina’s Central Bank showed that during the war, the Swiss Central Bank and a dozen Swiss private banks maintained suspicious gold accounts in Argentina. Among the account holders was Jacques-Albert Cuttat.

,...

On June 19, 1947, in the midst of Evita's trip, the first of Dodero's ships, the “Santa Fe,” arrived in Buenos Aires and disgorged hundreds of Nazis onto the docks of their new country.

Over the next few years, Dodero's boats would carry thousands of Nazis to South America, including some of Hitler's vilest war criminals, the likes of Mengele and Eichmann, according to Argentine historian Jorge Camarasa.

On August 4, 1947, Evita and her entourage headed north to the stately city of Geneva, a center for international finance. There, she participated in more meetings with key figures from the Nazi escape apparatus.

A Swiss diplomat named Jacques-Albert Cuttat welcomed the onetime torch singer. The meeting was a reunion of sorts, since Evita had known Cuttat when he worked at the Swiss Legation in Argentina from 1938 to 1946.

Newly released documents from Argentina’s Central Bank showed that during the war, the Swiss Central Bank and a dozen Swiss private banks maintained suspicious gold accounts in Argentina. Among the account holders was Jacques-Albert Cuttat.

The Swiss files accused Cuttat of conducting unauthorized private business and maintaining questionable wartime contacts with known Nazis. In spite of those allegations, the Swiss government promoted Cuttat to chief of protocol of the Swiss Foreign Service, after his return from Argentina to Switzerland.

In that capacity, Cuttat escorted Eva Peron to meetings with senior Swiss officials. The pair went to see Foreign Minister Max Petitpierre and Philipp Etter, the Swiss president.

Etter extended a warm welcome to Evita, even accompanying her the next day on a visit to the city of Lucerne, “the doorway to the Swiss Alps.”

After her "official" duties had ended, Evita dropped out of public view. Supposedly, she joined some friends for rest and recreation in the mountains of St. Moritz.

Eva Peron 'had a lobotomy' just before she died
By Ted Thornhill
Updated: 08:25 EST, 4 August 2011

She was the darling of a nation and died at 33 at the height of her popularity, but now it’s been revealed that Eva Peron probably spent her last few months in a much-altered mental state.

Evidence has emerged that she was given a lobotomy to help her cope with the cancer that eventually ended her life in July 1952.

...
We have uncovered evidence that led us to believe she underwent a prefrontal lobotomy to relieve the pain, agitation and anxiety she suffered in the final months of her illness,’ Daniel Nijensohn, an Argentine-born neurosurgeon at Yale University told the Daily Telegraph.

Swiss museum accepts part of Nazi art trove with ‘sorrow’
Kunstmuseum Bern chief emphasises bequest from Cornelius Gurlitt excludes works suspected of having been looted

The president of a Swiss fine art museum has described the anguish surrounding its decision to accept a collection of modernist masterpieces bequeathed by the son of a Nazi-era art dealer.

Christoph Schäublin said it had “triggered no feelings of triumph” that the of the Kunstmuseum Bern was to take on the artworks that were recently discovered in the home of German recluse Cornelius Gurlitt.

The museum chief’s remarks followed an agreement signed in Berlin on Monday between Germany and Switzerland which will see Bern taking on several hundred works from the collection – much of which works amassed during the Nazi era and included paintings and drawings by Marc Chagall, Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso.
...
Gurlitt, who died in May aged 81, had bequeathed his entire collection to the Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland’s oldest art museum.

The collection was discovered in his Munich flat in February 2012. It was confiscated by the Bavarian authorities and was at the centre of legal wranglings because of the works taken illegally by the Nazis.

Gurlitt’s father, Hildebrandt, was an art dealer who was allowed to buy and sell works classified as “degenerate” by the Nazis.
...

“He spent a lot of his youth in Bern,” Frehner said. “As we have since been able to piece together, it was relatively early on that he considered giving his works to us.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hildebrand_Gurlitt
Hildebrand Gurlitt (15 September 1895 – 9 November 1956) was a German art dealer and art historian who traded in "degenerate art" during the Nazi era.[1] His collection of 1,406 works (by Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso, among others) was confiscated in 2012 by Bavarian authorities from the apartment of his son, Cornelius Gurlitt.[2]
...
Gurlitt was arrested by the Allies near Bamberg in 1945, hiding in the castle of Baron von Pollnitz. He turned down an offer from the baron to hide his art collection in a new secret place. Or so he let a writer know. What we now know is that he did successfully hide more than 1,000 paintings—or his teenage son did. It is possible they were cached in France. Gurlitt's chief job on the Confiscation Committee was to work in Paris during the war, where he lived from 1941 to 1945 in the Hotel de Jersey. He had two ways of collecting for Hitler's Fuehrermuseum. One was to visit abandoned Jewish homes and remove their artworks; his licence was a Nazi law declaring that French nationals who had fled had lost French citizenship. The other was to spend Reichsmarks at the Drouot auction house in Paris, where distress sales were big business. Gurlitt was no small buyer. He paid more than one million French francs for the four most expensive paintings in the highest-value Paris sale of the war—the Georges Viau Impressionists auctioned by Etienne Ader between 11 and 14 December 1942, which fetched £922,000 in wartime values (equivalent to approximately £37493.3 million in 2014). The sale's top price of 5m francs was paid by Gurlitt for Cezanne's Vallee de l'Arc et Mont Sainte Victoire. It demonstrated Nazi purchasing power. Unfortunately the tiny painting, for which Gurlitt gave 94 times the then record for a Cezanne, proved to be a fake

,,,
Under interrogation after capture, Gurlitt and his mother told United States Army authorities that in the February 1945 fire bombing of Dresden, his collection and his documentation of art transactions had been largely destroyed at his home in Kaitzer Strasse.
...
Assessed as a victim of Nazi persecution due to his Jewish heritage, he was released and continued trading art works until his death in a car crash in 1956
...


On 22 September 2010, German customs officials at the German–Switzerland border found €9,000 in cash on his son Cornelius Gurlitt, which led to a search warrant in 2011 for his apartment in Schwabing, Munich.[20]

On 28 February 2012 they found 1,406 artworks, with a present estimated worth of one billion Euros (approx. $1.3 billion).

Initial reports by the German magazine Focus and others stated that the discovery happened early 2011, but customs officials corrected that during a press conference. Presently being cataloged in a secure warehouse in Garching, 300 of the works were exhibited in the Degenerate Art Exhibition in 1937 in Munich. Cornelius Gurlitt sold Lion Tamer at an auction in Cologne shortly before the collection was seized. Authorities initially banned reporting on the raid, which only came to light in 2013
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Jeb Bush May Be Making Too Much Money to Bother Running for President
By Kia Makarechi



According to the Times, Bush has worked for or with Lehman Brothers, a soap maker whose books were cooked, and an Affordable Care Act-supporting hospital owner. He has raked in at least $3.2 million from board positions, charges $50,000 for speeches, and is said to be paid more than $1 million a year by Barclays, the firm that absorbed much of Lehman after Bush’s bid to have Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helú save the failing bank.

  Amazing research TahoeBlue.


  Every RIGHT-THINKING American should hate what is being thrown at them right now.

  Jeb for the Republicans.

  Hillary for the Democrats.

  The lame stream media will try to butcher Jeb (who none of us should want) to strengthen FAT HOG HILLARY'S CHANCES FOR PRESIDENT (who no one should want).

  This is so evil---to even throw either of these crooks at the sheep.

Thank you , I am amazed at the connections that go back to before WWII  ...  Americans have not been in control of their destiny. It seems we are on a collision course that will not be corrected . Hillary still seems to be loved by the DMC and Jebby will not be rejected for GOP ... The MSM continues to give them complete cover no matter how bad it is ...  These people are all obviously crooks ...

Switzerland sex slave seeks asylum in Austria
Published: 31 Oct 2014 11:27 GMT+01:00

A 19-year-old woman from Kosovo who was forced into prostitution and kept as a sex slave in a cellar in Switzerland for almost three years has sought asylum in Austria.

The woman, who managed to escape her tormentors a few weeks ago, sought refuge in Innsbruck, Tyrol, according to a report in the Tiroler Tageszeitung newspaper.

Officers at a police station in Innsbruck said they were amazed when the young woman came in on October 22nd and told them that in 2012 she had been given a date rape drug by a stranger, imprisoned in a cellar, and was then regularly forced to work as a prostitute in a bar in Switzerland.

“In addition to this she was often forced to take cocaine before working,” Christoph Hundertpfund from Tyrol police said in a press release that was sent out on Thursday.

According to the 19-year-old three other women were imprisoned with her and suffered a similar fate.

After hearing the woman’s story Austrian Federal Criminal Police immediately informed police in Switzerland, who carried out a search of a house in Switzerland that night, and arrested two men. They reportedly also seized a large amount of drugs.
...
Police could not confirm where in Switzerland she was being held, and said that the investigation is ongoing.

Kosovars are considered to be bosses of human traffic in Switzerland
By Elton Tota  /   29/05/2014  /   No Comments   

By Elton Tota

An annual report of the Swiss federal police published today in Berne, presents Kosovars as the main traffickers of human beings in this country. In 25% of the identified cases relating to this traffic, Kosovar citizens have been the ones that controlled this activity, notes the 2013 annual report of Swiss Federal Police. “It’s been a while that trafficking has assumed more sophisticated forms. It’s no longer made through illegal border crossing, but also through forged documents. These documents do not only serve for a simple entry to Switzerland, but also to secure a legal stay in this country”, reads the report. As far as the origin of the people involved in the traffic of human beings is concerned, according to the report, this offense is a very lucrative business especially in Kosovo. Kosovars consist of 25% of those accused of this activity in Switzerland, increasing their presence by 6% in the last year. The Syrians are ranked second with 5%.

Zurich's drive-in 'sex boxes' off to slow start
Published: 27 Aug 2013 12:20 GMT+02:00



Switzerland's first sex drive-in, aimed at creating a safer space for Zurich's sex workers and taking prostitution off the streets, opened for business on Monday to a big fanfare, but few customers.

...
The drive-in, which as darkness fell was bathed in colourful lights, has a track where the sex workers can show off their assets and negotiate a price, and nine so-called "sex boxes" where they and their clients can park and conclude the transaction.
   
 Machines looking like parking metres had been installed at the last minute.

 The prostitutes who work here will be required to contribute five francs ($5.40) each night in taxes to help Zurich cover the cost of running the place.
   
 The drive-in, which has room to accommodate around 50 prostitutes, will be open every night from 7pm until 5am and is one of three spaces in the city where prostitutes can work legally.

With the opening of the new site however, Sihlquai, Zurich's most notorious red-light street, where barely-dressed street-walkers have long openly plied their trade to the dismay of residents and businesses, has become off-limits to prostitution
...
The drive-in, approved by 52.6 percent of Zurich voters in a March 2012 referendum, is designed to be safer for the sex workers, with security guards on hand to ensure there is only one man in each car that enters as well alarm buttons in each "sex box", on-site doctors and social workers.

...

A 2012 study published in World Development, “Does Legalized Prostitution Increase Human Trafficking?”
[ http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1986065 ]
investigates the effect of legalized prostitution on human trafficking inflows into high-income countries. The researchers — Seo-Yeong Cho of the German Institute for Economic Research, Axel Dreher of the University of Heidelberg and Eric Neumayer of the London School of Economics and Political Science — analyzed cross-sectional data of 116 countries to determine the effect of legalized prostitution on human trafficking inflows. In addition, they reviewed case studies of Denmark, Germany and Switzerland to examine the longitudinal effects of legalizing or criminalizing prostitution.

The study’s findings include:

Countries with legalized prostitution are associated with higher human trafficking inflows than countries where prostitution is prohibited. The scale effect of legalizing prostitution, i.e. expansion of the market, outweighs the substitution effect, where legal sex workers are favored over illegal workers.

On average, countries with legalized prostitution report a greater incidence of human trafficking inflows. The effect of legal prostitution on human trafficking inflows is stronger in high-income countries than middle-income countries. Because trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation requires that clients in a potential destination country have sufficient purchasing power, domestic supply acts as a constraint.

Criminalization of prostitution in Sweden resulted in the shrinking of the prostitution market and the decline of human trafficking inflows.

Cross-country comparisons of Sweden with Denmark (where prostitution is decriminalized) and Germany (expanded legalization of prostitution) are consistent with the quantitative analysis, showing that trafficking inflows decreased with criminalization and increased with legalization.

The type of legalization of prostitution does not matter — it only matters whether prostitution is legal or not. Whether third-party involvement (persons who facilitate the prostitution businesses, i.e, “pimps”) is allowed or not does not have an effect on human trafficking inflows into a country.

Legalization of prostitution itself is more important in explaining human trafficking than the type of legalization. Democracies have a higher probability of increased human-trafficking inflows than non-democratic countries.

There is a 13.4% higher probability of receiving higher inflows in a democratic country than otherwise. While trafficking inflows may be lower where prostitution is criminalized, there may be severe repercussions for those working in the industry. For example, criminalizing prostitution penalizes sex workers rather than the people who earn most of the profits (pimps and traffickers). “The likely negative consequences of legalised prostitution on a country’s inflows of human trafficking might be seen to support those who argue in favour of banning prostitution, thereby reducing the flows of trafficking,” the researchers state. “However, such a line of argumentation overlooks potential benefits that the legalisation of prostitution might have on those employed in the industry. Working conditions could be substantially improved for prostitutes — at least those legally employed — if prostitution is legalised. Prohibiting prostitution also raises tricky ‘freedom of choice’ issues concerning both the potential suppliers and clients of prostitution services.”

Hungarian prostitutes flooding to Zurich

In most cases, the women were pushed onto the street by brothers, uncles, cousins or even husbands

Prostitutes from Hungary are increasingly being sent to work in the red-light district on Sihlquai in the centre of Zurich, but they don’t see themselves as victims of trafficking, according to a Swiss researcher.

55 out of 56 Hungarian

Out of 56 applications recently submitted by sex workers in Zurich to the Office for Economy and Labour (AWA), all but one were from Hungarian women. The other application came from a Romanian, Der Sonntag newspaper reported.

“I met women in Hungary who said to me they will never return to Switzerland as the men there are so brutal.”
Finger said the women were often afraid of the police, their customers, and the challenges posed by living in Switzerland. “They feel illegal even though they are not doing anything illegal.”

Zurich prosecutor Silvia Steiner is also aware of the problems Hungarian prostitutes face in Switzerland.
“The dilemma for me is that the women deny they are victims of human trafficking,” she said.

John McCain Hangs Out with Old Pal George Soros in Switzerland

by John Urban | Top Right News

As Republicans in his home state of Arizona were censuring him for supporting far-left policies like amnesty, John McCain was in Switzerland, reminding them why they were right to do so.

McCain met for a long and friendly conversation with none other than George Soros, the primary funder of the most far-left outfits pushing illegal alien amnesty, ObamaCare, Common Core indoctrination, and suppression of gun rights in America.

McCain’s support for amnesty for tens for millions of illegal aliens was a key motivator for Arizona Republicans to censure him in an unprecedented rebuke. Soros is a principal funder of the Center for American Progress and National Council of La Raza (“The Race”)  — the largest non-profits on the left pushing for amnesty.

John McCain’s Wife Hiding War Profits, Untaxed Off-Shore Accounts?

Federal agents: Cindy McCain’s full tax returns will show war profits, pre-9/11 insider trading, secret off-shore accounts linked to 1241 Class C Nevada corporation payoffs and bribes (Real Corp Realty)

By Tom Flocco Edited and updated since 2008 by Stew Webb Columnist Veterans Today

Washington—According to a high-placed federal agent actively based in Washington, DC who spoke with federal whistleblower Stewart Webb, Republican presidential candidate and Senate Armed Services Ranking Member John McCain’s wife Cindy Hensley McCain’s multiple undisclosed federal income tax returns will reveal millions in Iraq War military procurement contract profits involving Hensley & Co. (Hensley Beer), Mrs. McCain’s large Anheuser-Busch beer distribution firm.


In more shocking allegations which media and Democratic congressional leaders have failed to investigate, a U.S. intelligence authority with scores of federal contacts, said federal agents also know that Mrs. McCain made millions in insider short-sale profits involving Swiss re-insurance put option stock orders placed prior to the September 11 attacks—profits of death which have remained untaxed by the U.S. government and raise questions as to her 9/11 tip-off.

Federal agents alleges Cindy McCain’s complete 2001 tax return would also reveal that she has a secret offshore 1241 corporation set up with “private trust accounts established by Senator McCain’s late ‘Keating Five’ scandal (Stew Webb Exposed) and Bush 41 money launderer Leonard Millman who was also Stewart Webb’s father-in-law—all of which screams for a federal probe of Real Corp Realty.

Agents also alleged that Mrs. McCain has made millions from a joint business enterprise with both Hillary and Bill Clinton and Fox News billionaire Ruppert Murdoch which involves a pornographic website with its 1241 corporate headquarters in the Cayman Islands. Leonard Millman financed Ruppert Murdoch  Media Empire with from ongoing Iran-Contra Narcotics Money Laundering.

UBS Settlement Puts Spotlight On Tax Evasion

It's been an eventful week for Swiss banking giant UBS. It posted a $1.3 billion loss on Tuesday — its third straight quarterly loss.

But that news was tempered by last week's announcement that UBS has reached a settlement with the U.S. government in a lawsuit involving thousands of American UBS customers. The government said many of those U.S. citizens and residents with secret UBS accounts may be tax evaders.

Going into the lawsuit, the U.S. had a strong case. UBS is Switzerland's largest bank, one that in recent years greatly expanded its U.S. presence. Two years ago, the Justice Department began an investigation that found the company conspired to help wealthy Americans set up secret bank accounts that would help them evade taxes.

More on the Marc Rich connection to the NSA and spying ... and Switzerland:


http://ciphermachines.com/hagelin
Hagelin Ciphers

...
In 1952 Hagelin's new company, Crypto AG, introduced the wildly popular C-52 and the CX-52, with a stronger encipherment than the previous models. The handheld CD-57 was added in 1957 for clandestine operations and was compatible with the CX-52. These machines would go on to be the most successful cipher machines ever produced, selling to 120 countries around the world.

These were used for the most sensitive military, diplomatic and financial messages with complete confidence of the users based on the trust of a Swiss bank and the precision engineering of a Swiss watch.
...

What the users of these Hagelin machines did not know was the single greatest coup in the history of military intelligence. In 1957, William Friedman was called out of retirement by the US NSA to make a secret deal with Boris Hagelin, giving the US access into all the secret communications using the Hagelin machines. The US shared this information with England. Later, as the cipher technology advanced from mechanical devices to electronics, the new Hagelin machines installed a back door written by the NSA.

Dictators and madmen, such as the Iranian Islamic regime, Saddam Hussein, Moammar Gadhafi, Ferdinand Marcos, Idi Amin, as well as friendly nations and the Vatican all had their most secret communications read instantly by Washington and London [AND SWITZERLAND!!! ] . This unfettered access would continue for decades.

 This open book into the world's secrets would start to unravel in 1983. A US Naval Intelligence officer, Jonathan Pollard, acting as an Israeli spy sold this highly classified information (well above top secret) to Israel. This sensitive information was then traded to the Soviet Union in return for them allowing more Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel. The rest of the world remained oblivious to the espionage battles over the Hagelin cipher machines and continued to use them. It turns out the Russians probably already knew this secret from two other US spies, Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen.

...

The lid was blown off this greatest of secrets in a very public way in March 1992. Hans Buehler, the top salesman for Crypto AG was arrested in Iran and charged with spying for the US and Germany, by selling cipher machines with the hidden back door. Buehler was not aware of the secret deal between Hagelin and the NSA, so he maintained his innocence and Crypto AG's integrity for 9 months. He was finally released after Crypto AG and, curiously, Siemens agreed to pay a million dollar ransom. Siemen's role in the ransom furthered speculation that Crypto AG was secretly partnered with that German company, with close ties to German intelligence.

Within weeks of his return to Switzerland, Buehler was fired by Crypto AG and was billed for his million dollar ransom. He went on to discover the truth of the secret NSA deal from previously tight-lipped employees and wrote a book about his ordeal and discoveries. Crypto AG went on to sue Buehler but settled out of court before the Crypto AG engineers could testify about their knowledge of the NSA deal. Buehler was released in January 1993 and despite claims of innocence from Crypto AG, sales plummeted. The three and a half decades of NSA access to the world's secrets came to a grinding halt as more countries understood the scope of the deception.

...


In the high stakes spy vs. spy world, this is not the end of the incredible Hagelin story. With Crypto AG sales and stock price in free-fall, the Swiss fugitive billionaire and Mossad agent, Marc Rich came into the picture as an angel investor. So the back door lost by the NSA was soon to be reprogrammed for Marc Rich and his Israeli contacts. This was an important deal for Rich, this billionaire jet set investor happened to live in or near Zug for the previous 20 years, a town of about 25,000 in central Switzerland and the headquarters of Crypto AG.

After the disclosure of the Hagelin/NSA deal and the Crypto AG bailout from the likes of Marc Rich, it is truly astonishing that many countries continue to this day to use Crypto AG products.

Rich and Israeli intelligence have used the secrets gained from the Crypto AG back door for financial and political gain. For instance, Israel purportedly made hundreds of millions of dollars in trading United and American Airlines put options just prior to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack.

 In the hours before Clinton left office on January 20, 2001, a deal was struck granting a pardon for Rich. This pardon was controversial for several reasons. Marc's then wife, Denise Rich, spent the night in the White House during Clinton's last night in office. She contributed a total of $1.3 million to the Democratic Party and the Clinton Library.
...

With headquarters in Steinhausen, the company is a long-established manufacturer of encryption machines and a wide variety of cipher devices. The company has about 230 employees, has offices in Abidjan, Abu Dhabi, Buenos Aires, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat, Selsdon and Steinhausen, and does business throughout the world.[1]

The owner(s) of Crypto AG are unknown, supposedly even to the managers of firm, and they hold their ownership through bearer shares.[2]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Hagelin

Boris Caesar Wilhelm Hagelin (July 2, 1892 – September 7, 1983) was a Swedish businessman and inventor of encryption machines.

Born of Swedish parents in Adshikent, in Azerbaijan, Hagelin attended Lundsberg boarding school and later studied mechanical engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, graduating in 1914. He gained experience in engineering through work in Sweden and the United States.

His father Karl Wilhelm Hagelin worked for Nobel in Baku,[1] but the family returned to Sweden after the Russian revolution. Karl Wilhelm was an investor in Arvid Gerhard Damm's company Aktiebolaget Cryptograph, established to sell rotor machines built using Damm's 1919 patent. Boris Hagelin was placed in the firm to represent the family investment. In 1925, Hagelin took over the firm, later reorganising it as Aktiebolaget Cryptoteknik in 1932. His machines competed with Scherbius' Enigma machines, but sold rather better.

At the beginning of World War II, Hagelin moved from Sweden to Switzerland, all the way across Germany and through Berlin to Genoa, carrying the design documents for the company's latest machine, and re-established his company there (it still operates as Crypto AG in Zug). That design was small, cheap and moderately secure, and he convinced the US military to adopt it. Many tens of thousands of them were made, and Hagelin became quite wealthy as a result. Historian David Kahn has suggested that Hagelin was the only cypher-machine maker who ever became a millionaire.

FOR AT LEAST HALF A CENTURY, THE US HAS BEEN
 INTERCEPTING AND DECRYPTING THE TOP SECRET
 DOCUMENTS OF MOST OF THE WORLD'S GOVERNMENTS


It may be the greatest intelligence scam of the century: For decades, the US has routinely intercepted and deciphered top secret encrypted messages of 120 countries. These nations had bought the world's most sophisticated and supposedly secure commercial encryption technology from Crypto AG, a Swiss company that staked its reputation and the security concerns of its clients on its neutrality. The purchasing nations, confident that their communications were protected, sent messages from their capitals to embassies, military missions, trade offices, and espionage dens around the world, via telex, radio, teletype, and facsimile. They not only conducted sensitive albeit legal business and diplomacy, but sometimes strayed into criminal matters, issuing orders to assassinate political leaders, bomb commercial buildings, and engage in drug and arms smuggling. All the while, because of a secret agreement between the National Security Agency

ISIS Operating From Switzerland Yet Legal Snags Prevent Ban
A West Point report says it is 'debatable whether Switzerland possesses an adequate legal framework to mitigate this [jihadist] threat.'
By Soeren Kern
Mon, September 29, 2014


...
response to new revelations that the IS has established a network of cells inside Switzerland to raise money and recruit fighters for the jihad  in Syria and Iraq.

...
About 40 Swiss jihadists have left Switzerland to participate in holy wars around the world, including 15 who have traveled to Syria, according to the 2014 annual report of the Swiss intelligence agency, Nachrichtendienst des Bundes (Federal Intelligence Service, NDB).

This number is far higher than previous estimates, and especially worrisome considering the relative size of the Muslim community in Switzerland. The Muslim population of Switzerland is estimated to number between 350,000 and 400,000, or around 5% of the total Swiss population of 8 million.

Swiss ISIS returnee gets community service
AFP, Geneva
 Thursday, 11 December 2014

Switzerland has ordered a returned recruit of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group to do 600 hours of community service and will not send him to prison, in the country’s first sentencing of a foreign jihadist fighter.

 Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber’s ruling went into effect this week, he told public broadcaster RTS late Wednesday.

 The 30-year-old recent convert to Islam, from the western Swiss canton of Vaud, had travelled to Syria late last year to join an ISIS training camp.

 The man, whose name was not given, told the broadcaster he had been indoctrinated over the Internet.

“I was new to Islam... The videos I saw and the discussions I had online made me feel like I had to go there,” he said.

 After two weeks in the training camp however, he asked to leave, only to be jailed by the militant group, which held him for 54 days, RTS reported.

 The man, who has been cooperating with authorities and claims to have cut all ties with the jihadist group, was sentenced under a Swiss law against taking part in criminal organizations and under a military law against fighting for a foreign army, according to the report.

Switzerland imposes Islamic State ban
Published: 09 Oct 2014 11:34 GMT+02:00

The new ordinance, agreed by the federal government on Wednesday, comes into effect on Thursday for an initial period of six months.

A government statement said: “The Islamic State Group commits grave violations of human rights. Due to the escalation in its atrocities in the past few weeks, the Federal Council today decided to ban the group.”

The ordinance prohibits any activities by Islamic State within Switzerland and abroad, plus any activities that support or promote Isis.

That could include propaganda and fundraising campaigns, or the recruitment of new members.

Offenders could receive a prison sentence of up to three years or a fine.
Where applicable offending organizations will have their assets seized. 

The move comes after recent reports on the presence of jihadists in Switzerland, as well as escalating atrocities in Syria and Iraq, which have included several beheadings of British, French and American civilians.

At the end of September Swiss media reported that three Iraqis arrested in Switzerland in March were suspected of planning pro-Isis attacks and helping 40 Swiss residents travel to the Middle East to join Isis.

Interesting history is ... Although the Templars Order of Knights  lost Acre in 1291 and were later disbanded in 1308 the ,,, Teutonic order of Knights continued on (northern crusades etc ) till the modern day ...... and they were in Switzerland ...



This is where the "Iron Cross" comes from Black rather then Red ...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumiswald

Sumiswald is first mentioned in 1225 as Smoldeswalt.[3] The name either comes from the Germanic settler "Suomolt", the Latin term summa vallis ("bank over the valley") or the designation "Zum Oswald" ("to Oswald"), because in the Middle Ages there was a chapel in Sumiswald dedicated to Oswald of Northumbria.

The area was probably settled during the Middle Ages, when several castles were built.

From 1225, Sumiswald was a commandery of the Teutonic Knights of the "Ballei" Swabia-Alsace-Burgundy.

In 1525, the town bought its way out of serfdom, but stayed a part of the Teutonic Knights even after the Protestant Reformation was introduced in 1528; Sumiswald was sold to the city of Bern for 36,000 Reichs thaler in 1698.


http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Spittel

http://www.imperialteutonicorder.com/id4.html
(12) Burkhard von Scwanden - 1282-1290.
Burchard von Schwanden (also Burkhard; died 1310) was the 12th Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights, serving from 1282 or 1283-1290. Burchard hailed from a patrician part of Berne in Switzerland.

He was a monk in Hitzkirch before becoming the Komtur of Konitz (Chojnice) and advancing in 1277 to the rank of a regional Komtur of Thuringia and Saxony. He became grand master in 1282 or 1283.

It was during his term that the political situation of the Kingdom of Jerusalem worsened. This situation was strongly felt by the Order as its headquarters were still in Acre, but despite this, Burchard was in no hurry to help the crusaders in the Middle East, as his mind was preoccupied with matters in Prussia, Livonia, and the Holy Roman Empire.

In 1287, a Lithuanian invasion devastated much of Livonia. Burchard left for Rome in 1289 where, in the presence of the Pope, the new borders of the Monastic State of the Teutonic Knights by the Baltic Sea were drawn. Burchard also sought Pope Nicholas IV's permission for the coronation of Rudolf von Habsburg.

In early 1290, Burchard was forced by the Order to help the crusaders in Acre which was under siege. An army gathered by the grand master in a hurry left for the Holy Land. Shortly after arriving, Burchard surprisingly handed over his authority to Heinrich von Bonlant, Komtur of Sicily, resigned as the grand master, and left the Order for reasons unknown.

After leaving Acre,

Burchard left for his native Switzerland where he decided to join the Knights Hospitaller and became the Komtur of Buchsee. He died in 1310, but the exact date of his death is not certain.

It is close to the village and was founded in 1225 by Lüthold of Sumiswald with the condition that in a hospital was set up - hence the name almshouse . From 1698 to 1798 the castle was the seat of a Bernese bailiwick and 1812 went over to the community Sumiswald. The built after the fire of 1730 new building currently houses a retirement home , which will be closed shortly.



The almshouse is a former castle of the Teutonic Order in Sumiswald , Canton Bern , Switzerland .

The Order of The Teutonic Knights of St. Mary's Hospital in Jerusalem - 1190-2012
The German Order of The Teutonic Knights of Christ in Jerusalem


Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus St. Mariens in Jerusalem

Welcome to The Website of The Teutonic Order
File:Crux Ordis Teutonicorum.svg  of the Hospital of the Virgin Mary in Jerusalem   File:Crux Ordis Teutonicorum.svg


The Teutonic Order or in its full name the Order of the Teutonic Knights of St. Mary's  Hospital in Jerusalem - looks back on a long and eventful history of more than 800 years.
 Formally established as hospital brotherhood near the seaport Acre in the Holy Land in  the year 1190, during the third crusade. In the prologue of the Order's Book it reads:
"Real knighthood does not only know the time-bound form of swordplay, which has passed;
 the actual composure of chivalrous men is rather expressed in their commitment for the
Lord's kingdom, for protecting the defenceless, for helping the maltreated, those beset,
the condemned and those in need." It is the pronounced goal of the Knights, Brothers and
 Sisters of the German Order to jointly implement this composure, abiding by the Order's
 motto "Helping and Healing" With this Website we would like to provide you with some
insight in the History of the Order, our work, in our roots and spirituality, in our past,
but also the presence of the Order today.

http://www.imperialteutonicorder.com/id16.html

The Teutonic Order, as a new institution was confirmed by the German Crusader leader, Duke Frederick of Swabia, on November 19th, in the year 1190 and with the capture of Acre, the founders of the hospital were given a permanent site in the city.

Pope Clement III confirmed this body as the "fratrum Theutonicorum ecclesiae S. Mariae Hiersolymitanae" by the Bull Quotiens postulatur of February 6, 1191 and, within a few years, the Order had developed as a Religious Military institution comparable to the Hospitallers and Templars, although initially subordinate to the Master of the Hospital. This subordination was confirmed in the Bull Dilecti filii of Pope Gregory IX of January 12, 1240 addressed to the "fratres hospitalis S. Mariae Theutonicorum in Accon". The distinct German character of this new Hospitaller Order and the protection given to it by the Emperor and German rulers, enabled it to gradually assert a de facto independence from the Order of Saint John. The first Imperial grant came from Otto IV who gave the Order his protection on May 10, 1213 and this was followed almost immediately by a further confirmation by Frederick II on September 5, 1214.

 These Imperial confirmations each treated the Teutonic knights as independent from the Hospitallers. By the middle of the fourteenth century this independence was acknowledged by the Holy See.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Gianfranco Becchina – Naughty, naughty

The feds have announced plans to seize an ancient Roman sculpture from a Queens storage facility on behalf of Italian officials. The sculpture, said to represent the mythological figure Ariadne, was a lid on the 1,800 year old sarcophogas of a Roman noblewoman. The statue was supposedly looted in the early 1970’s or 80’s but no one knows how it got here or where exactly it came from. The man behind the mystery seems to be Gianfranco Becchina, convicted in 2011 for plundering (surprise) Roman artifacts. Authorities began working on the case when it turned up on exhibit for sale at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC by Phoenix Ancient Art


http://archaeology.org/news/2915-150122-rome-artifacts-recovered
Police Raids Recover More Than 5,000 Artifacts

ROME, ITALY—A Switzerland-based art dealer and his wife have been accused of being part of an antiquities trafficking network involving tomb raiders in southern Italy; dealers; and buyers from Germany, Britain, the United States, Japan, and Australia.

The looted works are thought to have been sent to Switzerland where they were restored and sold with counterfeit provenance papers.

Italian police have seized more than 5,000 artifacts, including vases, jewelry, frescoes, and bronze statues dating from the eighth century B.C. to the third century A.D. The items are estimated to have been worth $64 million on the black market. “This is by a long shot the biggest recovery in history in terms of the quantity and quality of the archaeological treasures,” Carabineri General Mariano Mossa said at a news conference reported in The Columbian.

Documents associated with the case could lead Italian authorities to artifacts now housed in top museums around the world. To read the dramatic story of an earlier effort to fight the illegal looting of Italy's ancient tombs, go to "Raiding the Tomb Raiders."

 By Adam LeBor|August 30, 2013 12:00 AM|Comments: 8

McKittrick’s involve­ment with the BIS began in 1931, when he joined the Ger­man Cred­its Arbi­tra­tion Com­mit­tee, which adju­di­cated dis­putes involv­ing Ger­man com­mer­cial banks. One of the other two mem­bers was Mar­cus Wal­len­berg, of Sweden’s Enskilda Bank, who taught McKit­trick about the intri­ca­cies of inter­na­tional finance. Mar­cus and his brother Jacob were two of the most pow­er­ful bankers in the world. Dur­ing the war, the Wal­len­berg broth­ers used Enskilda Bank to play both sides and har­vest enor­mous prof­its.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholms_Enskilda_Bank
Stockholms Enskilda Bank, sometimes called Enskilda banken or SEB, was a Swedish bank, founded in 1856 by André Oscar Wallenberg as Stockholm's first private bank. In 1857, Stockholms Enskilda Bank began to employ women, claiming to be the first bank in the world doing so.[1]

Stockholms Enskilda Bank was managed by the Wallenberg family who, thanks to the bank, built a unique position in Swedish business. During World War II, the Wallenberg bank was accused of collaborating with Nazi Germany, putting the bank on blockade by the U.S. Government.[citation needed] In 1972, the bank merged with Skandinaviska Banken to become Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken.[2]
...

Second World War

Before and during the Second World War the Swedish government called upon the bank's management for trade negotiations with Germany, United Kingdom, the United States and Finland.

During the war, in 1939–1941, Stockholms Enskilda Bank acquired a number of subsidiaries within the German Bosch group. The acquisitions were made under the condition of Bosch being able to buy the property back after the war. A similar acquisition was made regarding the American Bosch Corporation. The U.S. Government considered the acquisitions illegal and the American Bosch Corporation as enemy property, and subsequently confiscated it in 1943. In August 1945, the bank and the Wallenberg brothers were further accused for collaborating with the Nazis, making the U.S. Government impose a blockade on Stockholms Enskilda Bank. The blockade was lifted in 1947.

Another NWO one bites the dust ---- so who's the replacement ?  Wallenberg Bilderberg regulars ...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/11368245/Peter-Wallenberg-Swedish-industrialist-obituary.html

Peter Wallenberg, who has died aged 88, was the fourth-generation patriarch of Sweden’s most powerful business dynasty
.

The Wallenbergs descend from André Oscar Wallenberg, a bishop’s son and former naval officer who founded the Stockholms (later Skandinaviska) Enskilda Bank in 1856; in the next generation, Knut Agathon Wallenberg was Sweden’s foreign minister as well as a banker and industrialist. The diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, saviour of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis, was a cousin. But the family has always sought to stay out of the limelight: its motto is Esse no videri (To be, not to be seen).


Their wider interests – known as “the Wallenberg sphere” and including stakes in companies such as Ericsson in telecommunications, Astra Zeneca in pharmaceuticals, ABB in engineering, ball-bearing maker SKF and appliance maker Electrolux – are grouped into a holding company, Investor, of which Peter Wallenberg was chairman from 1982 to 1997.

Born in Stockholm on May 29 1926, he was the second son of Marcus Wallenberg Jr, a nephew of Knut who sailed for Sweden in the 1936 Olympics and played international tennis as well as driving the bank and expanding the family’s industrial interests. Peter’s mother, Marcus’s first wife, was a Scot, Dorothy Mackay.

...

In the post-war era, the Wallenbergs (despite allegations by some historians that they had allowed their businesses to supply industrial materials to Nazi Germany) maintained close links with successive US governments.

A link with the United States

In the 1980s Peter Wallenberg provided a discreet link between Stockholm’s defence chiefs and Washington; he also served on the Fowler-McCracken Commission, an American effort to set new agendas for global development and security. As a result he earned the admiration of President George Bush Sr, who said of him: “He could have chosen to rest on the extraordinary laurels of his family, but he chose to build and create. He is a man of enormous competence and dimension.”

Peter Wallenberg was three times married; his oldest son, Jacob, is now chairman of Investor, and his younger son Peter is chairman of the family trust, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, which holds a controlling stake in Investor and has made donations of more than £4 billion in the past five years to fund research in technology and medicine at Swedish universities.

Peter Wallenberg, born May 29 1926, died January 19 2015

Did Wallenberg’s family aid Nazis while he saved Jews?
by HEATHER CAMLOT, Jewish Telegraphic Agency

NEW YORK -- While Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg was saving the lives of Jews in Hungary during World War II, some of his relatives were collaborating with the Nazis, according to the World Jewish Congress.

 "While Raoul was a saint, he was performing superhero feats to save the Jews in Budapest, the U.S. government knew that the Wallenberg bank, controlled by his uncles, was cooperating wholly with the Nazis," said Elan Steinberg, WJC executive director.

 The WJC reported recently that it discovered the activities of the Wallenberg-owned bank while searching declassified U.S. intelligence files for information concerning the whereabouts of assets of Holocaust victims that are believed to be in Swiss bank accounts.

 The Wallenberg documents shed light on "Sweden's involvement with and collaboration with the Nazis during the war," Steinberg said.

"Sweden is clearly emerging as one of the places where the Nazis moved assets."

 According to the documents, The Enskilda Bank, owned by Jacob and Marcus Wallenberg, Raoul's uncles, dealt in large black-market operations, money laundering and concealing German investments in the United States. [/size]

The documents also contain evidence disproving the belief in some circles that Marcus Wallenberg was on the side of the Allies. He traveled to the United States in 1940 on behalf of German interests to buy back a block of German securities being held by America, according to the documents.

 The disclosed information about the collaboration between the Nazi regime and Marcus and Jacob Wallenberg suggests a reason for the feeble attempt to find their nephew.
...
U.S. News & World Report reported earlier this month that newly unearthed documents showed that Raoul Wallenberg spied for an agency that was a predecessor of the CIA [ the OSS] .

Europe: Documents Reveal Sweden's Ties To Nazi Gold
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By Anthony Georgieff
January 09, 1997

Copenhagen, 27 January 1997 (RFE/RL) - Sweden has joined Switzerland in a process of demystifying financial dealings with Nazi Germany by releasing documents casting doubt on positions of neutrality during the Second World War.

 Midway through World War II, both countries, with the full knowledge of their governments and central bank directors, ignored warnings from the Allies about the nature of the gold and other assets they were buying from Germany and continued the trade until the end of the war. As late as 1944, the Swedish National Bank ordered its Swiss financial partners to melt gold bars so they could be stamped with a Swedish insignia to conceal their origin.

These gold bars did not originate only in precious metal expropriated from Jews. In many instances, they had a much more macabre history: they were melted gold teeth, wedding rings and golden glass frames taken from Jews at Auschwitz and other death camps.

 Swiss historian Christoph Graf says Switzerland and Sweden were "very much in the same boat" when it came to financial dealings with Nazi Germany, only "the proportions were different."


In fact, documents released recently show that immediately after the war, Switzerland and Sweden had confidential talks to "compare notes" so as not to contradict each other in the face of war-crimes tribunals and possible banking investigations by the Allies.

 According to historians, the "dirty trade" encompassed three areas:

• The freezing of pre-war accounts held by Jews. By 1940, Sweden outlawed the opening of accounts for non-residents and many Jews mainly from neighbouring countries, including the three Baltic Republic, found they didn't have access to their money.
• The purchase of gold that was clearly stolen.
• Functioning as a fiscal safe haven for Nazis.

 It has been no secret that the wartime Social Democratic government in Sweden -- Sweden has been ruled by the Social Democrats since the 1930s but for the short-lived conservative government of Carl Bildt in the early 1990s -- traded with Hitler's Germany and that Swedish steel manufacturers provided metal for Germany's war industry. Nominally, the country was neutral, and unlike neighbors Norway and Denmark, it was not occupied by Germany. Throughout the war, Stockholm did not turn away Jewish refugees. For example, almost all of Denmark's Jews were transported by Danish fishermen and resistance activists to safety across the sound to Malmoe.

 According to documents recently cited in Swedish reports, the family of Raoul Wallenberg, the wartime Swedish diplomat in Budapest who saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of Jews and later died in Russia, is revealed to have participated in the trade of Nazi Germany's wartime gold. The documents suggest the Wallenberg family was sympathetic to the Germans and thought they would win the war.

 In 1944, after Raoul Wallenberg had already helped many Jewish families in Hungary, another senior member of the clan, Jacob Wallenberg, attempted to sell state bonds for Nazi gold. However, the Wallenberg family never succeeded in buying the gold. Sweden's National Bank denied the family's request, because, by then it suspected the gold had been stolen.

 It is unclear precisely how much gold Sweden had obtained during the war. Estimates vary from "at least" 20,000 kilos to about 34,000 kilos. In the early 1950s, some gold was sent back to its rightful owners. But declassified archives now show that "many tons" of gold are still unaccounted for.

“While Raoul was a saint, he was performing superhero feats to save the Jews in Budapest, the U.S. government knew that the Wallenberg bank, controlled by his uncles, was cooperating wholly with the Nazis,” said Elan Steinberg, WJC executive director.

[ Not just Jews - everyone that went against the Nazi's - lost everything along with their lives ]

Swiss Accused of Keeping Holocaust Funds
By Marian England
 Cold Spring Harbor High School
 New York, USA
1997

With the fifty year celebration of the liberation of European Jews from Nazi concentration camps a year ago, comes allegations with growing evidence of Swiss banks profiting from the Holocaust. The Swiss government is outraged about allegations that their government, banks, and the Swiss insurance industry collaborated with the Nazis and profited from gold looted from victims of the Holocaust.

During World War II, European Jews were victimized twice. Not only were they victims of the Holocaust, but they were also victims of Nazi officials who stole from them. Homes were invaded and stores were plundered. The trains came into Auschwitz, a concentration camp in Poland, and as the people stepped off of the train, not only were they separated from their families, but they were ordered to place their belongings into baskets; clothes in one, jewelry in another, gold in another. Everything was separated. From weddings rings to gold fillings from teeth, the Jews' possessions were then melted into gold and sent to Switzerland from which Germany acquired hard currency to carry on their war efforts. As one survivor said, "Once you hit the camp, you were nobody."

As the Nazis swept across Europe, they confiscated gold from each country they invaded. In 1940, 800 million dollars in gold was taken from central banks in Europe. By far, the largest amount of money was taken from Belgium, 223 million dollars.
...

The money contained in the Swiss bank accounts from both the central banks of Europe and Holocaust victims is said to be millions, possibly billions of dollars. As the Nazis shipped valuables to Switzerland, they made extensive use of the safe deposit boxes there. American documents have related that there are hundreds of millions of dollars in the bank vaults, composed of jewelry, securities, artwork assets, and valuables. Some of it was returned; most was not.

In the Washington Agreement of 1946, the Swiss paid 250 million dollars as a contribution to help rebuild Europe after World War II. Senator Alfonse D'Amato of New York believes that the Swiss got off too easily in the Washington Agreement because there was no United States money involved and therefore would be easy to cover up. Carlo Jagmetti, the Swiss Ambassador, to the United States, believes that an international agreement was concluded, implemented and that it can not be reopened. On the other hand, D'Amato believes that a negotiated treaty that is fraud has a right to be reopened. Being the Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, D'Amato remarked that he has an "obligation to see that there is proper accounting."

D'Amato stated that he was "determined to break down the wall of silence erected fifty years ago." He does not believe the Swiss claim that account records which were dormant for ten years were destroyed. After the war, children of Jews sought their parents' money in Swiss bank accounts, but were denied because they did not know the account numbers.

...

As of March 1996, D'Amato began an inquiry into the status of the assets of European Jews and others held in the Swiss bank accounts. According to the Swiss Bankers Association, a total of 893 accounts, holding $32 million was found. These numbers have been found to be extremely small.

The question of Swiss profiting from the Holocaust no longer remains. However, there is the question of how much of the money was central bank gold and how much of the money was from individual victims of the Holocaust. After almost sixty years, the money can still be locked up in safe deposit boxes in Switzerland. It, of course, is possible, but most likely improbable. The reality of the situation still remains that the lost loot from European Jews from the Holocaust may remain a mystery forever.
...
On January 27, 1997, Carlo Jagmetti, the Swiss Ambassador to the United States resigned after the publication of a diplomatic cable. He advised his government on how to deal with the Holocaust inquiries on Jewish possessions stolen during World War II. The cable contained advice that Switzerland should realize that the inquiries into their banks were going to be a long affair. Jagmetti believes that these inquiries have turned to war, both foreign and domestic, and one that the Swiss must win. Jagmetti concluded in his resignation that the Holocaust victims who are seeking recompense from the Swiss banks are "opponents" who "cannot be trusted."
...

But as of March 5, 1997, the Swiss government proposed to set up a $4.7 billion fund  --  a "Swiss Foundation for Solidarity"  --  to help the victims. The Swiss government would increase the stated value of it gold reserve to work with current world market prices and then use the difference for the fund. The previous fund set up by private Swiss banks and the national Bank would only provide short term help to those now dying of old age. This new fund is for "the prospect of long-term commitments." The important question that still remains is when will the payment finally begin? So far, not one Swiss franc has been repaid to a Holocaust survivor. The Swiss Government, as of May 2, has appointed Elie Wiesel, Nobel-Laureate and Holocaust spokesman, to chair the seven-member panel that will administer the funds for Holocaust victims and their families.

A Righteous Person

Christophe Meili, a Swiss business student moonlighting as a nightwatchman at a large Swiss bank, recently won applause from Holocaust groups and the U.S. Senate for rescuing Nazi-era documents detailing bank holdings which were to be destroyed. Fired from his job as a result, Meili knew he had to act after watching Schindler's List. "A few months before, I had seen the movie, . . . and that is how, when I saw these documents, I realized I must take responsibility -- I must do something." Meili, who now receives death threats in his native Switzerland, has been hailed as a hero in many circles


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christoph_Meili

Michel Christopher "Christoph" Meili (born 21 April 1968)[1] is a Swiss-American whistleblower and security professional.

In early 1997, Meili had been working as a night guard at the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS, precursor of UBS AG) in Zürich, Switzerland. He discovered that officials at UBS were destroying documents about orphaned assets, believed to be credit balances of deceased Jewish clients whose heirs' whereabouts were unknown, as well as books from the German Reichsbank.[2]

They listed stock accounts for companies in business during the Holocaust, including BASF, Degussa, and Degesch.[3] They listed real-estate records for Berlin property that had been seized by the Nazis, placed in Swiss accounts, and then claimed to be owned by UBS.[4]

Destruction of such documents is against Swiss laws.[5][6] The documents Meili saved reportedly predate the Nazi period, dating from 1897 to 1927.[7]
...
After Meili and his family reported receiving death threats they fled to the United States and were granted political asylum via private bill

According to news reports, Meili and his family are believed to be the only Swiss nationals ever to receive political asylum in the United States

On 13 January 1998, Ed Fagan filed suit against UBS on behalf of the Jewish victims, in the amount of US$2,560,000,000. On 13 August 1998, a settlement was reached between the Swiss banks and the Jewish plaintiffs totalizing US $1.25 billion.[17][18][19]

Fagan was disbarred in New York[20] and New Jersey for failing to pay court fines and fees, and for stealing client money and escrow trust funds from Holocaust survivors

...
Later in 1998 the investigations of the justice of Zürich against Meili for allegedly breaking the laws on bank secrecy were cancelled,[7] but Meili did not return to his homeland until 2003. His marriage ended in divorce in February 2002.[22] In September 2003 he visited his family in Switzerland. In Die Weltwoche, a Swiss newspaper, Meili criticized Fagan for having purportedly "instrumentalized" him and letting him down. He claimed to have never received the US $1 million that he was due[22] according to their agreement after settling with the Swiss banks in 1998.[23] However, according to a report by the Swiss magazine Facts (17 March 2005), Meili did receive USD $750,000.[
...
In an interview with the Swiss newspaper Sonntagsblick on 21 October 2006, however, Meili re-iterated his criticism of Fagan and the Jewish organizations who had once championed him, stating again they had let him

Swiss LeaksThe leaked HSBC files offer a rare glimpse inside one of the world’s most private banking systems.

More than $100 billion from 106,000 clients of 203 countries.

HSBC 'tax dodge' revelations are just tip of iceberg, says leaker
AFP
By Nina Larson with Roland Jackson in London
10 hours ago
...

The files created global shockwaves on Monday, spotlighting the financial dealings of the world's ultra-rich and prompting British lawmakers to launch an inquiry into the London-based bank.
...
Published at the weekend, the files claim HSBC's Swiss division helped clients in more than 200 countries evade taxes on accounts containing $119 billion (104 billion euros).

Herve Falciani, an IT worker turned whistleblower, stole the files in 2007 and passed them to French authorities, but they had not been previously made public.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) obtained the files via French newspaper Le Monde and shared them with more than 45 other media organisations worldwide.

But Falciani said the media reports on the documents' contents were based on just a fraction of the files he gave to the French state.
...
Dubbed the "Snowden of tax evasion" and "the man who terrifies the rich", Falciani remains wanted on data theft charges, but France and Spain have offered him protection by refusing to extradite him to Switzerland.

- 'Secretive industry serving the elite' -

Margaret Hodge, chairwoman of the British parliament's Public Accounts Committee, told the BBC that lawmakers were launching an "urgent inquiry" and would order HSBC to give evidence if necessary.

"Today's shocking revelations about HSBC further expose a secretive global industry serving a wealthy elite," she told the broadcaster on Monday.

The documents show that HSBC opened Swiss accounts for international criminals, businessmen, politicians and celebrities, according to the ICIJ.

The revelations renewed calls for a crackdown on sophisticated tax avoidance by the wealthy and multinational companies. Tax avoidance is legal, but tax evasion is not.

"HSBC profited from doing business with arms dealers who channelled mortar bombs to child soldiers in Africa, bag men for Third World dictators, traffickers in blood diamonds and other international outlaws," the ICIJ said.
...

A range of current and former politicians from Russia, India and various African countries, as well as Saudi, Bahraini, Jordanian and Moroccan royalty, and the late Australian press magnate Kerry Packer were named in the files.

There were calls for a Swiss probe against the bank, which is already facing prosecution in France and Belgium.

Switzerland has so far only launched an investigation against Falciani.

Global fallout on Monday included a Belgian judge said to be considering international arrest warrants for directors of HSBC's Swiss division.

A long-lost painting attributed to Leonardo da Vinci was confiscated from a bank vault in Switzerland after Italian police said it had been exported illegally and was in danger of being sold for up to £90 million.

Swiss police, acting on a request by their Italian counterparts, seized the portrait of Isabella d’Este, a Renaissance noblewoman, from a private bank vault in Lugano on Tuesday.

After being lost for centuries, the painting was rediscovered in 2013 in a collection of 400 artworks kept in a Swiss vault. The authorities then were alerted to the existence of the painting, but it went missing again.
...

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Este

The elder branch of the House of Este included the dukes of Brunswick and Lüneburg (1208–1918) and produced Britain's Hanoverian monarchs and one Emperor of Russia (Ivan VI).

I'm sure there are a lot of 'lost' treasure collecting dust in vaults in Switzerland.

It's not a question of 'if', just a question of 'how many'.

Those Nazi's love art and living in Switzerland .... I think this story had something to do with this guy ... Baron Thyssen

Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza, Industrialist Who Built Fabled Art Collection, Dies at 81
By JONATHAN KANDELL 

Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Swiss industrial magnate who used his fabulous art collection to court fame and controversy, died yesterday in Spain. He was 81.
...
In both business and art, Baron Thyssen built upon his enormous inheritance. He diversified his father's war-shattered company, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Group (pronounced TEESS-an Bor-nuh-MEES-uh), into glass, plastics, automobile parts, trading and container leasing. From its profits, the baron also expanded his father's collection into a private art holding rivaled only by the collection of the queen of England.

The paintings -- more than 1,000 old and modern masters -- as well as sculptures and tapestries were stashed away in the galleries and vaults of the baron's villa on Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Then, after years of public haggling with several countries, Baron Thyssen sold the bulk of his treasures to Spain, the native land of his fifth wife, Carmen (Tita) Cervera. The artworks are on permanent display in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and also in a restored medieval monastery on the outskirts of Barcelona.

...
The fortune was only three generations old and the title even more recent. His grandfather, August Thyssen, of Rhineland peasant stock, built a chicken-wire business into a steel and armaments empire. Of his seven children, the most formidable were the oldest, Fritz, who inherited leadership of the family industries, and the third son, Heinrich, who was Heini's father.

Fritz Thyssen was one of Hitler's earliest and most ardent supporters, helping finance the Nazis' Beer-Hall Putsch in Munich in 1923. Though he broke with the Nazis during World War II and was interned in a concentration camp, his earlier notoriety led the Allies to jail him for several more years after the war
...
With the death of the patriarch August Thyssen in 1924, the family fortune was divided among his children.

Heinrich used his mighty inheritance to become a banker and shipping magnate in the Netherlands, and he invested much of his earnings in art, mainly old masters. With the outbreak of World War II, Heinrich Thyssen settled permanently in Lugano, Switzerland, where he already had made a private museum for his art collection in an 18th-century mansion, called Villa Favorita. Young Heini grew up surrounded by these treasures.
...
Besides his widow, the baron is survived by three sons and a daughter from his first four marriages: Georg Heinrich, Lorne and Wilfred Alexander, and Francesca, who is married to Karl von Habsburg, scion of the ruling house of Austria. He adopted Tita's son, Borja, whose father she never disclosed, after his last marriage.

Spain refuses to return painting looted by Nazis
Published: 25 Sep 2014 14:15 GMT+02:00

The Cassirer family from Munich have been embroiled in a legal battle with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum since 2006, when Claude Cassirer first discovered Camille Pissarro's 'Rue Saint Honoré in the Afternoon - Effect of Rain' was in the Spanish capital.

The painting, currently valued at €13 million ($16.5 million), was allegedly taken from Claude’s grandmother by Nazis who forced her to sell it to them for a nominal price in 1939.

It eventually came to be owned by Baron Thyssen, who first put it on display in his museum in 1992.

The Times They Are A Changin (The Sale of Villa Favorita, Lugano – Part 1),
by Caroline D Schmitz
February 1st, 2015  :   

The lack of a fair distribution of assets in the world has reached a stage where the wealthiest 1% own more than the remaining 99% of the population, according to Credit Suisse. The Thyssens are a prime example of how a fortune, created through the dilligence of a few founding fathers and generations of their plants’ workforce, has multiplied exponentially through the use of financial instruments, multiple citizenships, political lobbying, press manipulation and, most of all, tax avoidance.

It was the last great Thyssen himself, Hans Heinrich („Heini“) Thyssen-Bornemisza, who told us: „I am a tax evader by profession. If you wanted to be correct, I should be in jail“. Villa Favorita in Lugano, Ticino, Switzerland, the closest the Thyssen-Bornemiszas ever got to a family seat, has been the symbol of their often rapacious attitude – hidden behind the veneer of their famous art collection – which has until recently gone unquestioned, accepted and even admired by the wider public.

Even before the First World War, Heini`s grandfather August, whose power base were the German steel mills and coal fields of the Ruhr, created a family bank in Rotterdam, the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart (BVHS), as an offshore bank for the Thyssen industrial empire. Heini’s father Heinrich, who had gained Hungarian nationality and a contrived aristocratic status through marriage, settled in Holland, took charge of the bank and fended off the post-war allied reparation claims, as well as the spiralling early 1920s hyperinflation. His Dutch lawyers created further financial instruments such as Rotterdamsch Trustees Kantoor and Holland American Investment (respectively Trading) Corporations. This situation later allowed Heini to consequently deny the family`s German connections while they continued well into the 1980s to draw their profits from the country.

The Thyssens were very well connected on the highest political level. They hosted Adolf Hitler several times at their residences in Holland and Germany during the Weimar Republic and, amongst other contributions, made a loan of 350,000 Reichsmark through BVHS to finance the Brown House in Munich
.

After August’s death in 1926, and on the advice of Heinrich`s social and financial mentor Eduard von der Heydt, the Thyssens began to orientate themselves towards Switzerland. Heinrich started buying works of art to reinforce his „gentlemanly“ image but mainly, according to Heini, „as an investment and a way of moving money“. The 530 paintings he acquired between 1928 and 1938, though of questionable quality and provenance in many cases, and earning negative reviews when the first 428 were exhibited as „Schloss Rohoncz Collection“ in Munich in 1930, laid the foundation of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection now housed in Spain.

In 1926 and 1931, in the Swiss canton of Schwyz, Heinrich`s advisors created the Kaszony and Rohoncz Collection Family Foundations to hold and protect his inherited corporate assets and his art purchases respectively.

Then, in 1932, he purchased 50,000 m² of Lake Lugano shoreline, comprising sub-tropical gardens and 12 buildings, a plot which had once been a whole quarter of noble villas, the most important being Villa Favorita. As Heinrich had bought the main residence complete with all furnishings in order to immerse himself in the style of the former princely owner, Leopold of Prussia, from 1936 to 1940 he had another building erected to house his art. But the exact logistics of the transfer of the paintings from their various points of purchase into Switzerland has remained shrouded in secrecy (its move out of Switzerland to Madrid half a century later was almost celebratory by comparison!).
 
In 1937, Heinrich’s Lugano lawyer Roberto van Aken, achieved a most favourable tax deal for his client with the Ticino authorities, as well as a Swiss foreigner’s passport, on the understanding that the collection be opened to the public. But while that same year his curator Rudolf Heinemann produced the first Lugano-based catalogue, the collection remained closed. Presumably neither side thought it wise to draw attention to the fact that this German tycoon was sheltering in Switzerland as his businesses supported Hitler’s genocidal war of aggression and exploited industrial slave labour – even though Helvetia profited from coal imports out of Heinrich’s Walsum mine through the Swiss Bank Corporation in Zurich. His German managers regularly visited him there,
including the director of the August Thyssen Bank in Berlin, which organised funds for the world-wide German counter-espionage through Switzerland.

After 1945, this mutually beneficial Swiss safehaven arrangement guaranteed that Heinrich, who was initially named on the list of war criminals to be judged at the Nuremberg war crimes trials, entirely escaped allied retribution. He died at Villa Favorita in 1947, untouched by public controversy, though ravaged by his long-standing, advanced alcoholism. The public myth of the Thyssen-Bornemiszas’ untainted background could now fully develop.

4Star ADM-- Muslim B-hood Has Penetrated ALL Nat. Sec. Agencies under Obama

The Muslim Brotherhood "Project"
By: Patrick Poole
 FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, May 11, 2006

One might be led to think that if international law enforcement authorities and Western intelligence agencies had discovered a twenty-year old document revealing a top-secret plan developed by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world to launch a program of “cultural invasion” and eventual conquest of the West that virtually mirrors the tactics used by Islamists for more than two decades, that such news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times, Washington Post, London Times, Le Monde, Bild, and La Repubblica. 

If that’s what you might think, you would be wrong.

In fact, such a document was recovered in a raid by Swiss authorities in November 2001, two months after the horror of 9/11. Since that time information about this document, known in counterterrorism circles as “The Project”, and discussion regarding its content has been limited to the top-secret world of Western intelligence communities. Only through the work of an intrepid Swiss journalist, Sylvain Besson of Le Temps, and his book published in October 2005 in France, La conquête de l'Occident: Le projet secret des Islamistes (The Conquest of the West: The Islamists' Secret Project), has information regarding The Project finally been made public. One Western official cited by Besson has described The Project as “a totalitarian ideology of infiltration which represents, in the end, the greatest danger for European societies.”

Now FrontPage readers will be the first to be able to read the complete English translation of The Project.

What Western intelligence authorities know about The Project begins with the raid of a luxurious villa in Campione, Switzerland on November 7, 2001. The target of the raid was Youssef Nada, director of the Al-Taqwa Bank of Lugano, who has had active association with the Muslim Brotherhood for more than 50 years and who admitted to being one of the organization’s international leaders. The Muslim Brotherhood, regarded as the oldest and one of the most important Islamist movements in the world, was founded by Hasan al-Banna in 1928 and dedicated to the credo, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The raid was conducted by Swiss law enforcement at the request of the White House in the initial crackdown on terrorist finances in the immediate aftermath of 9/11
. US and Swiss investigators had been looking at Al-Taqwa’s involvement in money laundering and funding a wide range of Islamic terrorist groups, including Al-Qaeda, HAMAS (the Palestinian affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood), the Algerian GIA, and the Tunisian Ennahdah.

Included in the documents seized during the raid of Nada’s Swiss villa was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982, which outlines a 12-point strategy to “establish an Islamic government on earth” – identified as The Project. According to testimony given to Swiss authorities by Nada, the unsigned document was prepared by “Islamic researchers” associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
...

 The following tactics and techniques are among the many recommendations made in The Project:

 
•Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations; 
•Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”; 
•Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals; 
•Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law; 
•Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims; 
•Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers; 
•Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities; 
•Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”; 
•Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements; 
•Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world; 
•Balancing international objectives with local flexibility; 
•Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant; 
•Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions; 
•Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam; 
•Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation; 
•Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution; 
•Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals; 
•Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West; 
•Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”; 
•Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support; 
•Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims; 
•Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination; 
•Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them; 
•Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine; 
•Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement; 
•Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;

In reading The Project, it should be kept in mind that it was drafted in 1982 when current tensions and terrorist activities in the Middle East were still very nascent. In many respects, The Project is extremely prescient for outlining the bulk of Islamist action, whether by “moderate” Islamist organizations or outright terror groups, over the past two decades.

The Al Taqwa Bank (occasionally Bank al Taqwa or simply Al Taqwa[1]) is a financial institution incorporated in 1988. It is based out of The Bahamas, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. Al Taqwa Bank was accused by the United States of having links to Islamist terror organizations, and that it was a major source of funds for the operations of Osama bin Laden and his associates.[2] On August 2, 2010, the bank was removed from a list of entities and individuals associated with Al Qaeda that is maintained by the UN Security Council.[3][4]
...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youssef_Nada
Youssef Moustafa Nada (born 17 May 1931, in Egypt) is a noted businessman and Muslim Brotherhood financial strategist. Nada is most famous for raising successful European human rights legal cases to defend himself against accusations of terrorism by the United States. The U.S. accusations, made directly after the 9/11 attacks, resulted in his placement on the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1267 terror blacklist.

In 2001, Nada, former chairman of al Taqwa Bank, was placed on the UN terror list by the US Treasury Department. Nada was alleged to have financed activities of al Qaeda, charges Nada vehemently denied.[1] The U.S. accusation was made applicable under the UN terror-listing program and affected his life in Switzerland, notably his assets, reputation, honor, and ability to move freely. In 2006, he sued the Swiss government for restitution of financial losses due to the Swiss investigation.[2]

By 2009, both the Swiss and Italian investigations of Nada were dropped as no evidence was found to support the U.S. accusations. Both Switzerland and Italy petitioned the UN Terrorism Committee to remove Nada's name from the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1267 blacklist, at the objection of the United States. The U.S. finally acquiesced to his removal on 24 September 2009, but retained Nada on the domestic U.S. Treasury list under Executive Order 13224.

The United States refuses to disclose evidence of Nada's guilt, claiming that the evidence is classified.[4]

Between 2007–2009, Nada's ordeal was the focal point of a Council of Europe Parliamentary human rights investigation of the UN terror-blacklisting procedures, and the UN Terrorism Committee in general.[5]

In 2008, Nada raised a case against Switzerland at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

On 12 September 2012, the European Court of Human Rights ruled in favor of Nada,[4] citing that Nada's human rights had been violated,[6][7] in the context of the European Convention on Human Rights. In this ruling the government of Switzerland was ordered to pay Nada 30,000 Euros in damages, for their treatment of him as a person placed — with no evidence of guilt — on the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1267 terror blacklist by the United States.

In November 2001, Swiss investigators will search the home of Youssef Nada, the leader of Al Taqwa Bank, a Swiss bank that had just been shut down by the US and the UN for alleged ties to al-Qaeda, Hamas, and other radical militant groups (see November 7, 2001). Nada and other Al Taqwa directors are prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Newsweek will say, “The Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928 as a religious and quasi-political counterweight to the corrupt and increasingly decadent royalist and colonial governments dominating the Islamic world, always has had two faces: one a peaceful public, proselytizing and social-welfare oriented wing; the other a clandestine, paramilitary wing.… Intelligence and law-enforcement officials say that while some branches and elements of the Brotherhood, such as the offshoots now operating in Egypt and Syria, have pledged to work for their goal of a worldwide Islamic caliphate using peaceful means and electoral politics, the Brotherhood has also spun off many—if not most—of the more violent local and international groups devoted to the cause of Islamic holy war.” Such offshoots will include al-Qaeda and Hamas. [Newsweek, 12/24/2004] Swiss investigators discover a 14-page document from December 1982 entitled “The Project.” Nada claims not to know who wrote the document or how he came to have it, and he says he disagrees with most of the contents. The document details a strategic plan whose ultimate goal is “the establishment of the reign of God over the entire world.” The document begins, “This report presents a global vision of an international strategy of Islamic policy.” It recommends to “study of the centers of power locally and worldwide, and the possibilities of placing them under influence,” to contact and support new holy war movements anywhere in the world, to support holy war in Palestine, and “nurtur[e] the sentiment of rancor with regard to Jews.” Swiss investigators who analyze the document will later write that the strategy aims to achieve “a growing influence over the Muslim world. It is pointed out that the [Muslim Brotherhood] doesn’t have to act in the name of the Brotherhood, but can infiltrate existing entities. They can thus avoid being located and neutralized.” The document also advocates creating a network of religious, educational, and charitable institutions in Europe and the US to increase influence there.

Swiss raid HSBC in money laundering probe

AFP
By Nina Larson
19 hours ago

Swiss authorities on Wednesday raided British banking giant HSBC's Swiss unit as part of a money laundering probe into the bank that has been accused of helping clients to dodge millions of dollars in taxes.

The investigation comes just days after HSBC Switzerland became the centre of a global scandal following the publication of secret documents claiming it assisted many of its wealthy clients in thwarting the taxman

...

The search and money laundering investigation was launched "following the recent revelations related to HSBC Private Bank (Switzerland)," they added.

The cache of files, made public in the so-called SwissLeaks case, claimed HSBC's Swiss private banking arm helped clients in more than 200 countries evade taxes on accounts containing $119 billion (104 billion euros).

The files provided details on over 100,000 HSBC clients, including people targeted by US sanctions, suspected arms dealers and drug traffickers.

...

In London, chief political commentator Peter Oborne announced his resignation from the Daily Telegraph as he accused the broadsheet of suppressing negative stories about HSBC to keep the valuable advertiser happy. The Telegraph denied the accusations.

Said Ramadan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Said_Ramadan

Said Ramadan (Arabic: سعيد رمضان‎; born April 12, 1926 in Shibin Al Kawm, Al Minufiyah, died August 4, 1995 in Geneva) was an Egyptian religious scholar and activist, and a major figure in the Muslim Brotherhood. He was the son-in-law of Hassan al-Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood's founder. After being expelled from Egypt by Gamal Abdul Nasser for his activities, Said Ramadan moved to Saudi Arabia where he was one of the original members of the constituent council of the Muslim World League, a charity and missionary group.[1]

He then moved to Geneva, Switzerland, before finishing a dissertation at the University of Cologne in 1959.

In 1961 he founded the Islamic Center in Geneva, a combination mosque, think tank, and community center. His son Hani Ramadan now runs that center.

Another son, Tariq Ramadan is prominent in international Islamic affairs and academics.

Said Ramadan's US connections included Muslim leader Malcolm X.

The Centre Islamique de Genève (Islamic Center of Geneva) is also known as "the Little Mosque" of Geneva.

It is the oldest Islamic center in Europe, founded by the Egyptian Said Ramadan in 1965.

The Center occupies a small whitewashed house with green shutters, close to Lake Geneva in the Les Eaux-Vives neighborhood. The largest room on the lower level of the house has been converted into a mosque.

Snowden says he'd like to return to Geneva
By Stephanie Nebehay
GENEVA  Fri Mar 6, 2015 10:00am EST


(Reuters) - Edward Snowden has made a public appeal for Switzerland to grant him asylum, saying he would like to return to live in Geneva, where he once worked undercover for the Central Intelligence Agency.

The fugitive former U.S. spy agency contractor, wanted by Washington for leaking details of U.S. mass surveillance programs, spoke from Moscow by video link to a Geneva audience after a viewing of "Citizenfour", an Oscar-winning documentary about his case.

"I would love to return to Switzerland, some of my favorite memories are from Geneva. It's a wonderful place," he told the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights on Thursday night
, where he was asked about seeking asylum.

"I do think Switzerland would be a sort of great political option because it has a history of neutrality," he said, praising its multicultural diversity and human rights record.

Snowden said he had appealed to 21 countries, "the majority in central and Western Europe", for asylum after the United States canceled his passport and he was stopped from going to Ecuador.

"Unfortunately no country said yes," he said, blaming "political interference" by the Obama administration.

'Shocking' Holocaust Study Claims Nazis Killed Up To 20 Million People
The Telegraph 
Matthew Day, The Telegraph
Mar. 4, 2013, 6:23 AM

The Nazi Holocaust may have claimed up to 20 million lives, a figure far greater than previous estimates, new research has revealed.

The millions disappeared into a Nazi imprisonment and killing machine that covered a bloody swathe of Europe and appears to have been far more deadly than has been thought.

Up until now, the Holocaust is thought to have consumed between five and six million Jews, with an estimated further six million other people also murdered by the Nazi regime.

The new figures of 15 to 20 million, which have astonished some Holocaust historians, come after thirteen years of painstaking study at Washington's Holocaust Memorial Museum . Historians at the museum brought together and studied the huge amount, and often disparate, files and research on the Holocaust.

"The results of our research are shocking," Geoffrey Megargee, the director of the study, told The Independent newspaper. "We are putting together numbers that no one ever compiled before, even for camp systems that have been fairly well researched - and many of them have not been."

The research covered some 42,400 camps and ghettos across Europe, and also included forced-labour camps and Nazi "care" centres where pregnant women were forced to have an abortion or had their child killed right after giving birth. It also drew in camps, prisons and killing grounds used by Nazi puppet regimes in countries such as France and Romania.

The number of locations is almost double previous estimates made by the same institution and, all told, they may have imprisoned and killed between 15 to 20 million people.

"The numbers are so much higher than what we originally thought," Hartmut Berghoff, director of the German Historical Institute in America, said in an interview after learning of the new data. "We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was but the numbers are unbelievable.

Overlooked Millions: Non-Jewish Victims of the Holocaust
Karen Silverstrim, MA Candidate

...

Victims of the Holocaust are those groups of people targeted for immediate death by the Nazis and their accomplices, or treated in such a way so as to knowingly lead to their eventual deaths. Victims come from many countries throughout Europe and are not limited to strictly victims in Germany during World War II.

The Holocaust was more than a Jewish event. Records kept by the Germans prove they exterminated millions of Communists, Czechs, Greeks, Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, mentally and physically handicapped, Poles, resistance fighters, Russians, Serbs, Socialists, Spanish Republicans, trade unionists, Ukrainians, Yugoslavians, prisoners of war of many nations, and still others whose identity may never be recognized.(1)

Their victims, according to one survivor of four different concentration camps, "were of some thirty nationalities, from Nepalese to Andorrans, and of a variety of racial and linguistic stocks ranging from Basques to Buriats and from Ladinos to Lapps".(2) When people were not immediately exterminated, they were sent to work and/or concentration camps. There the prisoners were divided into six penal categories and given patches on their clothing for identification purposes. Ordinary criminals were assigned green; political prisoners wore red; black was worn by asocials (slackers, prostitutes, procurers, etc.); homosexuals wore pink; conscientious objectors wore purple, and the Jewish people wore yellow

...

Swiss probe thousands of unclaimed accounts opened before 1955

BERLIN/ZURICH


May 3 Swiss banks have discovered thousands of accounts opened before 1955 and dormant for at least 50 years, a German newspaper reported on Sunday, saying the move could help reveal where wartime Nazi loot was stashed.

Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper said the accounts were being examined under a new Swiss law that requires banks to publish information this year on accounts that were opened at least 60 years ago and have been unclaimed for 50 years.

A spokeswoman for the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA)confirmed the report, saying the accounts in question were from both Swiss and foreign customers, adding that there was no specific Nazi link and the banks were not looking for particular groups.
 
"This publication is important for the banks as it allows them to search very widely for beneficiaries of the unclaimed wealth before the money has to be handed over to the government," the spokeswoman said.

Unclaimed accounts are a sensitive topic in Switzerland after the World Jewish Congress led a campaign in the 1990s for Swiss banks to return assets of Holocaust victims.
 
Strict secrecy laws mean that Swiss banks fiercely guard the identity of their clients, a tradition that has come under fire for helping hide tax evaders and which encouraged Nazis to open accounts in the neutral state during World War Two.
 
The Welt am Sonntag report, published as Berlin marked 70 years since the end of the war, said at least one suspicious account had turned up, opened by a German in 1940 and containing more than 1,000 Swiss francs.

Tax Data Sale Suspect Thought to Have Killed Himself
by Carolyn Bandel
October 1, 2010 — 8:55 AM PDT

Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- An Austrian man held in connection with the theft of Swiss bank-account details and their sale to Germany is believed to have killed himself in prison.

Guards at a regional jail in the Swiss capital of Bern discovered the 42-year-old man dead in his cell on Sept. 29 as they came to bring him breakfast, the Swiss federal prosecutor’s office said in an e-mailed statement. He had been detained since mid-September on suspicion of economic espionage, it said.

The suspect, who wasn’t identified, was held in an investigation into the alleged theft of client data from Swiss banks, which were subsequently sold to German tax investigators, prosecution spokeswoman Jeanette Balmer said today by e-mail. Officials in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said in August they were using information from an informant to identify possible tax dodgers who stashed funds in Switzerland.

Did The Knights Templars Form Switzerland?

1. The founding of the embryonic Switzerland conforms exactly to the period when the Templars were being persecuted in France.

2. Switzerland is just to the east of France and would have been particularly easy for fleeing Templar brothers from the whole region of France to get to.

3. In the history of the first Swiss Cantons there are tales of white coated knights mysteriously appearing and helping the locals to gain their independence against foreign domination.

4. The Templars were big in banking, farming and engineering (of an early type). These same aspects can be seen as inimical to the commencement and gradual evolution of the separate states that would eventually be Switzerland.

5. Even the Swiss don’t really know the ins and outs of their earliest history (or suggest that they don’t.) They are famous for being secretive and we don’t have to tell interested readers that this is something they share absolutely with the Templars.

6. The famous Templar Cross is incorporated into the flags of many of the Swiss Cantons. As are other emblems, such as keys and lambs, that were particularly important to the Knights Templar.

7. The Swiss were and are famous for their religious tolerance – and so were the Templars.

Does Israeli Spy Jonathan Pollard Have $1 Million Waiting in a Swiss Bank Account?
By Jeff Stein  7/28/15 at 7:16 PM

If past reports are true, convicted spy Jonathan Pollard could have about $1 million waiting for him in a Swiss bank account when he is released from federal prison on parole in November. Pollard, whose release was announced on Tuesday, has served nearly 30 years for supplying the Israeli government with classified U.S. intelligence documents.

Pollard's new problem: how to get to the cash, and when. According to multiple past reports based on the statements of United States investigators, Israeli intelligence paid Pollard $50,000 by the time he was arrested in 1985, on top of lavish gifts, and promised to deposit $30,000 a year for him in a secret Swiss bank account. The original 10-year deal could have amounted to as much as $540,000, officials said when he went to jail. But if the Israelis continued the payments to their captured spy—a common practice of major espionage agencies the world over—then Pollard could be in line for a $1 million payday, or more.

News of Pollard claiming such a reward, however, could touch off a firestorm in the already rocky relations between the U.S. and Israel.

...

As for the conditions of Pollard’s parole, Bowman said, "they don't have to give him his [U.S.] passport back, but I suspect they would.” He added, “Israel deposited money for him in a Swiss bank account.”

...

But according to Ron Olive, the NCIS investigator in the case, hard copies of the documents that Pollard stole over 18 months could “fill a room that is six feet by six feet by ten.”

"No other spy in the history of the United States stole so many secrets, so highly classified, in such a short period of time," he said in a 2010 interview. He and other U.S. intelligence officials maintain that Pollard sold documents to “Pakistan, South Africa and two other countries they declined to identify,” Bowman said.

Charles S. Leeper, the assistant United States attorney who prosecuted Pollard, said money was a big motivation for the spy, who claimed he was only trying to help Israel, a U.S. ally, not not to betray his country, according to a 1999 account by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker. In his sentencing memorandum, Leeper pointed to Pollard’s annual cash contract with the Israelis, saying he “stood to receive an additional five hundred and forty thousand dollars ($540,000) over the expected life of the conspiracy,” Hersh reported.


...

Pollard's first wife, Anne Henderson Pollard, who was arrested with her husband in 1985 and served 40 months of a five-year prison term for being an accessory to possessing classified documents, moved to Israel in 2010. In a 2014 Israeli TV interview, she said she had been “abandoned and betrayed” by the Jewish state.

Suffering from poor health, she said: “The government owes me at least… they owe me for my medical issues. I’ve never asked anybody to feel pity. I’m not being a victim. What I’m trying to do is have an ounce of justice.”

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Friedrich Tinner, the Iranian nuclear program and the CIA

Friedrich Tinner is a Swiss engineer, connected with the Khan network trafficking in the proliferation of nuclear materials and know-how to Pakistan, Iran, Libya, and North Korea. He has been connected in particular with gas centrifuges used for isotopic enrichment of uranium.[8] In May 2008, the President of the Swiss Confederation, Pascal Couchepin announced that the Tinner files, believed to number around 30,000 documents, had been shredded.[9] It is alleged that this was a cover-up, to hide the involvement of Urs Tinner with the CIA.[10][11]

Swiss nuke smugglers who aided CIA avoid more jail

Prosecution documents shed light on successful US operation to destroy smuggling network of Abdul Qadeer Khan, architect of Pakistan’s nuclear program
By Frank Jordans September 19, 2012, 10:23 am

BERLIN (AP) — Three Swiss engineers accused of participating in a global nuclear smuggling ring are set to avoid further prison time, in part because they helped the CIA bust the network that was supplying Libya’s atomic weapons program.

Prosecution documents released Tuesday outline a plea bargain agreement under which Urs Tinner, 46, his brother Marco, 43, and their 74-year-old father, Friedrich, would accept the charges against them in return for prison terms that are shorter than the time they have already spent in investigative custody.
...
The documents also shed light on the US intelligence agency’s successful operation to destroy the nuclear smuggling network of Abdul Qadeer Khan, the architect of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program.

Friedrich Tinner had longstanding contacts to Khan dating back to 1975, according to Swiss prosecutors. The two continued to do business – with Tinner supplying equipment and expertise for uranium enrichment to Khan – even after Pakistan detonated its first nuclear bomb in 1998.
...
Khan built up an international network selling equipment to countries with nuclear weapons ambitions, including Libya and Iran. Prosecutors said all three of the accused were involved in the smuggling ring and supplied key equipment and blueprints for the production of gas centrifuges that are needed to enrich uranium to weapons grade levels.

Urs Tinner claimed in a 2009 interview with Swiss television that he had tipped off the CIA about a delivery of centrifuge parts destined for Libya’s nuclear weapons program. The shipment was seized at the Italian port of Taranto in October 2003, forcing Libya to admit and eventually renounce its efforts to acquire nuclear weapons technology
...
The CIA declined comment on the Tinner case. But the agency has said in the past that “the disruption of the A.Q. Khan network was a genuine intelligence success, one in which the CIA played a key role.”

Federal prosecutors in Switzerland said the Tinners’ cooperation with U.S. authorities and the UN nuclear agency should count as a mitigating factor in their sentencing. They added that the Swiss government’s 2007 decision to destroy evidence in the case should also weigh in the men’s favor, as the shredding of key documents made many of the allegations hard to prove. Prosecutors managed to recover some – but not all – of the files from Germany, where another Khan associate was sentenced in 2008.

The Tinners will appear before Switzerland’s Federal Criminal Tribunal in Bellinzona for sentencing on Monday.

Destroyed files

Despite the length of time the case has taken, many of the details concerning the Tinners’ involvement will never be known.

In March 2013, the justice ministry implemented a cabinet decision and destroyed copies of documents that the Federal Prosecutor’s Office had found in its archives at the end of 2008.

The files comprised 58 pages of information on the manufacture of nuclear weapons, together with other documents with information on uranium enrichment. The originals were destroyed with other documents back in 2007 on instructions from the cabinet

NESTLÉ LEADERS: Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, left, Nestlé Chairman and Paul Bulcke, Nestlé Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

The Privatization of Water: Nestlé CEO Denies that Water is a Fundamental Human Right

Originally published in December 2013

The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the wonderful company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media.

This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:


Large multinational beverage companies are usually given water-well privileges (and even tax breaks) over citizens because they create jobs, which is apparently more important to the local governments than water rights to other taxpaying citizens. These companies such as Coca Cola and Nestlé (which bottles suburban Michigan well-water and calls it Poland Spring) suck up millions of gallons of water, leaving the public to suffer with any shortages. (source)

But Chairman, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, believes that “access to water is not a public right.” Nor is it a human right. So if privatization is the answer, is this the company in which the public should place its trust?
...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Brabeck-Letmathe
Peter Brabeck-Letmathe (born 13 November 1944) is an Austrian businessman. He is the chairman and former CEO of the Nestlé Group,[1] and chairman of Formula One.[2]
...

On 5 June 1997, he was elected to the board of directors, and appointed chief executive officer of Nestlé S.A. On 6 April 2001, the board of directors elected him as vice-chairman, and in April 2005, chairman of the board.

In 2008, Brabeck-Letmathe stepped down as CEO

...

Brabeck-Letmathe is on the board of directors of Credit Suisse Group, L'Oréal, and ExxonMobil. He is also a member of ERT (European Round Table of Industrialists) and a member of the foundation board of the World Economic Forum. His earnings in 2006 were approximately 14 million Swiss francs (9 million Euro).

F1 Teams To Be Consulted Over New Chairman

Formula One’s teams have been given the right to be consulted over the replacement for the chairman of the series according to the contracts which commit them to race.

The news was revealed in Britain’s Independent newspaper today and it is particularly relevant as F1’s current chairman, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, is stepping down.

The Independent also disclosed that the new chairman will be lead a team of people who decides on the replacement for F1’s 84 year-old chief executive Bernie Ecclestone when he eventually gives up the wheel.

Despite Mr Ecclestone’s age, there is no sign that he is slowing down and the chairman is not being replaced as part of a plot to sideline him as some have suggested. In fact, the reason for the replacement is that Mr Brabeck-Letmathe is resigning from the board to battle a long-running illness.

In addition to his role at F1, Mr Brabeck-Letmathe has high-profile positions at cosmetics company L’Oréal and food giant Nestlé. In April Nestlé confirmed that he would undergo treatment for a curable illness but did not say what it was.

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe: Nestle Head sceptical about health benefits of the gluten-free revolution

...

We meet at the Salzburg Festival, which Nestlé has sponsored since 1991 and where it has given an award for the best young conductor since 2010. Brabeck-Letmathe, 70, looks healthier than when I saw him just over a year ago. His grey hair is starting to grow back after treatment for a “curable illness” that Nestlé assured investors would not stop him working.

“Let me put it this way: you never know with this stuff but for the time being no treatment is foreseen, so I am free.” His doctor had banned him from flying long distances, an odd sort of purgatory for a jet-set executive, but he put the spare time to good use, qualifying as a helicopter pilot in January
,...

He has amassed a string of other influential roles, sitting on the board of beauty group L’Oréal, oil giant ExxonMobil and also chairs Formula One. His profile means that Brabeck-Letmathe is often the first line of defence when things go wrong. Still associated with that baby-milk scandal, Nestlé’s latest row has blown up in India, where health authorities say the lead and monosodium glutamate levels in its Maggi noodles are too high. Nestlé disagrees, but has had to take 30,000 tons of noodles off supermarket shelves.

It is potentially hugely damaging but a short-term worry compared to the food industry’s biggest challenge: how to increase production by 70 per cent by 2050 to feed the extra two billion people on the planet and greater demand for richer diets.

Brabeck-Letmathe thinks it can happen as long as a single resource is better managed: water. As chairman of the 2030 Water Resources Group, a public-private group pushing for water reform, he regularly gets quoted as saying that access to water is not a human right, a controversial stance from the seller of millions of bottles of Nestlé Pure Life and Buxton.

That is only half the story. He insists that water is a human right for the 25 to 50 litres needed per day for hydration and minimum hygiene – making up 1.5 per cent of the water that is being withdrawn from the system. The rest, less so.

Rockefellers

Lots of other Rockefellers ...
Oh Rockefellers are Swiss - Palatines:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Palatines
... had come to Germany from Switzerland (Thirty Years War) ,

Notable Palatines
Johann Peter Rockefeller (1681–1763), progenitor of the Rockefeller family

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/h/o/y/Janet-G-Hoyt/WEBSITE-0001/UHP-0059.html

Johann Peter Rockefeller (Rockenfeller), son of Johannes, was born in the Rhineland, Germany, in September 1682, the youngest of eight children. (Rockefeller Genealogy, op.cit. pp4, 355. Both Wied and Segendorf in the Rhineland are mention as his birthplace.) He married twice; his first wife was Anna Maria Remagen of Segendorf, born 1684. Anna died in 1719 and Johann married on October 19, 1720 Elizabeth Christina Runkel. In 1723, Johann Rockefeller emigrated with his family to America.

http://www.familytree.com/surnames/Rockefeller


A German surname, Rockefeller, the original name was Rokkenfelder which referred to those from the Rockenfeller or Rockenfeld region of Rhineland, Germany. The name means an open field of rye. A French branch of Rockefeller comes from Roquefeuille, France. Variations in spelling for Rockefeller include Rockenfeller, Rockenfeld and Rockafeller.

Originally from the Rhineland region of Germany the Rockefeller family moved into Switzerland and to North America ( I don't think so - Switzerland to Rhineland).

Within the United States the Rockefeller families first settled in Pennsylvania and others moved into Canada. Individuals with the name also now live in New York, Ohio, Texas, California, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado and Connecticut. Famous: John D. Rockefeller (founder of Standard Oil Co.), Nelson Rockefeller (41st Vice-President of the United States), Jim Rockefeller (inventor of the Rockefeller Yankee - a fiberglass sports car) and James S. Rockefeller (1924 summer Olympics gold medal winner in rowing).

Jesuit History in Switzerland ....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Switzerland
...

The Swiss constitution of 1848, written by the victorious pro-union Protestant cantons after the Catholic-Separatist Civil War of 1847, consciously defines a consociational state, allowing the peaceful co-existence of Catholics and Protestants

However, the Catholic Jesuits (Societas Jesu) were banned from all activities in either clerical or pedagogical functions by Article 51 of the Swiss constitution in 1848. The reason was the perceived threat resulting from Jesuit advocacy of traditionalist Catholicism to the stability of the state.

In May 1973, 54.9% of Swiss voters approved removing the ban on the Jesuits (as well as Article 52 which banned monasteries and convents from Switzerland);[8] the vote reflected sharp divisions between the cantons, with 92% of Valais supporting, but 71% of Neuchâtel opposing removing the ban.[citation needed]

The settlement restrictions placed on Swiss Jews in various instances between the 14th and 18th centuries were lifted with the revised Swiss Constitution of 1874.

A popular vote in March 1980 on the complete separation of church and state was clearly opposed to such a change, with only 21.1% voting in support, to the effect of the retention of the Landeskirchen system.[9]

In November 2009, 57.5% of Swiss voters approved of a popular initiative to ban the construction of minarets in Switzerland. The four existing Swiss minarets, at mosques in Zurich, Geneva, Winterthur and Wangen bei Olten are not affected by the ban

...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landeskirche
In Germany and Switzerland, a Landeskirche (plural – Landeskirchen) is the church of a region. They originated as the national churches of the independent states, States of Germany (Länder) or Cantons of Switzerland (Kantone, Cantons), that later unified to form modern Germany (in 1871) or modern Switzerland (in 1848), respectively.

...

Martin Luther demanded that, as a stop-gap, each secular Landesherr (territorial lord, monarch or a body, like the governments of republican Imperial estates, such as Free Imperial Cities or Swiss cantons) should exercise episcopal functions in the respective territories

JESUIT INSTITUTIONS  IN   SWITZERLAND
The Jesuit College and Church in Lucerne


 Lucerne, Switzerland
 features the Jesuit Church of St. Francis Xavier

When Cardinal Charles Borromeo was in Lucerne in 1570 he urged the authorities to invite the Jesuits to found a school there and introduce the spirit and reforms of the Council of Trent to the region. On August 7, 1574 three Jesuits from Germany arrived in Lucerne
...

When Clement XIV suppressed Jesuits in 1773 Lucerne authorities asked the Jesuits to remain at their posts and continue their pastoral and educational activities as secular priests. When the order was restored in 1814, the Jesuits were invited to return to Lucerne by the canton authorities. They were reluctant at first because of strong opposition from radical anti-Catholicism, and when they finally did return in 1844, they encountered a serious political situation in the country that led to civil war, the Sonderbund War. That war was lost by the Catholic cantons, and in December of 1847 the Jesuits were expelled from the country, and Switzerland introduced an article into its constitution prohibiting forever the presence of Jesuits in Switzerland.

This prohibition contradicting freedom of religion prevented Switzerland from entering the European Union and so in 1973 a slim majority of 54.9% voted to let them back in.
