Benevolence International and the far right
« on: February 27, 2017, 12:24:25 pm »
Benevolence International is a charity which is part of Al Qaeda and tied to a wide array of terror attacks in the 1990s. One of those is the Oklahoma City bombing which was ostensibly carried out by a white nationalists/far-right movement, possibly by the Aryan Republican Army, modelled after the IRA and sympathisers with them in their fight against "Jewish run England"

The founder of Benevolence in 1987 in Saudi Arabia was a man named Adel bin Abdul-Jalil Batterjee.

Looking again at Batterjee shows a connection to Ireland and to far right white supremacy causes. A google search reveals no obvious references to these ties before.

His sanitised wikipedia biography proudly boasts that: Dr. Batterjee is recognized as a major contributor to intelligence and giftedness research in the Middle East in general and Saudi Arabia in particular. His research is published in recognized international and regional scientific journals. Dr. Batterjee is also a member of the Advisory Board of Mankind Quarterly along with worldwide-recognized scientists such as Professor Richard Lynn, and Professor Gerhard Meisenberg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adel_Batterjee

A review of Richard Lynn shows he is known for his belief in racial differences in intelligence. Lynn has also argued that the high fertility rate among individuals of low IQ constitutes a major threat to Western civilization. Lynn is listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in their extremist files as a white nationalist. The SPLC has kept a record of Lynn's controversial statements, for example, in a 2011 interview with neo-Nazi Alex Kurtajic, Lynn stated, "I am deeply pessimistic about the future of the European peoples because mass immigration of third world peoples will lead to these becoming majorities in the United States and westernmost Europe during the present century.

In other words his ideas are those you see commonplace on white nationalist websites. The sort of ideas that may have been commonplace at Elohim City for example. Whether true or not they inspire and underpin these movements.

He is also based out of Northern Ireland. A 1994 story about his Ulster Institute for Social Research taking money from white nationalist funds, says the following:
Quote
Professor Lynn also confirmed that he contributes to a magazine called Mankind Quarterly which is published by another recipient of Pioneer funds, the Institute for the Study of Man, and is run by Roger Pearson, who has a history of far-right activity. In one book Pearson advocates the vision of a 'supergeneration' genetically engineered from the sperm of the fittest and most capable whites. A previous editorial adviser was the Nazi scientist Baron Otmar von Verschuer.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ulster-university-took-grant-from-fund-backing-whites-1405688.html

Pearson was World Chairman of the World Anti-Communist League, and in that capacity collaborated closely with the US government during the cold war, and he collaborated with many international anti-communist groups in the organisation, including followers of Reverend Moon.

The existence of the World Anti-Communist League, and the collaboration of "many international anti-communist groups in the organisation," provides an example of how and why white nationalists and al Qaeda may have met.

I cant find out much about the other German scientist mentioned, Professor Gerhard Meisenberg.

Al Qaeda had a branch in Northern Ireland called Mercy International which was behind the Millennium attack plot.

Batterjee's charity, Benevolence, helped organise the financing of Al Qaeda  -  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Chain

Benevolence Philippine head oversaw the development of the Bojinka plotting that became 9/11  -  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammed_Jamal_Khalifa  He was also in the US at the time the OKC bombing plot was coming together

Some websites give a birthday of 1970 for this man but the man on a UN sanctions list is born 1946. There would appear to be some confusion over identity. At least i am not sure. Presumably 1970 is wrong as he cant have created Al Qaeda aged 17.

Background: The World Anti-Communist League was founded in 1966 in Taipei, Taiwan. WACL was conceived as an expansion of the Asian People’s Anti-Communist League, a regional alliance against communism formed at the request of Chiang Kai-shek at the end of the Korean War.

The Asian People’s AntiCommunist League (APACL) had roots in the China Lobby, a group dedicated to stopping official international recognition of the Chinese Communist government. The China Lobby had U.S. government connections, and allegedly Ray Cline of the CIA assisted this group in establishing the Taiwanese Political Warfare Cadres Academy in the late 1950s.

The founders of APACL were agents of the governments of Taiwan and Korea, including Park Chung Hee who later bacame president of Korea; Yoshio Kodama, a member of organized crime in Japan; Ryiochi Sasakawa, a gangster and Japanese billionaire jailed as a war criminal after World War II; and Osami Kuboki and other followers of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, head of the Unification Church. Sasakawa provided major funding for Moon and the Unification Church. When Park became president of South Korea after the 1961 coup, he adopted the Unification Church as his political arm.

One resource states that the Anti-Bolshevic Bloc of Nations (ABN), headed by the notorious Yaroslav Stetsko since the 1950s, entered the group in the early 1960s. The ABN is the largest and most important umbrella for former Nazi collaborators in the world.

During the 1970s WACL spread to all six continents and chapters were opened in Japan, Europe, Britain, Australia, the U.S. , and Latin America. The organization attracted former Nazi supporters in Europe and in Latin America. The Latin American group, Confederacion Anti-Comunista Latinoamericana (CAL), headed by Raimundo Guerrero, sprang from the roots of Los Tecos, a World War II facist group. CAL was overtly fascist and connected to a chain of rightwing military plots in Latin America.

The Unification Church (UC) of Sun Myung Moon has remained a major power within WACL. Moon claimed that he raised $1. 4 million for WACL’s 1970 annual conference. In 1975, Moon denounced WACL as being too facist, and claimed to sever connections between it and the UC. Reports in the New York Times, Searchlight and elsewhere, however, indicate the separation is nominal only. In 1985, WACL’s Japanese branch was still run by Osami Kuboki who also headed the Japanese Unification Church.

From 1978 to 1980 Roger Pearson, well known for his theory of white supremacy and his fascist sympathies, was chairman of WACL. Pearson concentrated his efforts in Europe and attracted more radical fascist elements to WACL. For a time WACL appeared to be more anti-semitic than anticommunist. Pearson and the more radical WACL branches attempted to oust more moderate groups, but his attempted coup failed. In 1980, WACL expelled Pearson and said it had purged its fascist elements. As with the separation from the UC, however, the separation from the fascists was cosmetic only. Most of the individuals involved were reported by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers to be among the attendees at succeeding annual conferences.

After Pearson’s ouster, Major General John K. Singlaub (ret. ) and his newly-formed U.S. chapter of WACL, the United States Council for World Freedom (USWCF), became WACL’s most active branch. USCWF was founded in 1981 by Singlaub with a $16,500 loan from the Taiwanese branch of WACL and generous support from beer baron Joseph Coors. (28,35) From 1984 through 1986, Singlaub was the chairman of WACL.

In 1984, columnist Jack Anderson wrote a series of exposes on WACL connecting the group with death squads operating in Latin America, and once again linking them with fascists, this time in Latin America. He reported that the "godfather" of the death squads in Guatemala, Mario Sandoval Alarcon, a principal of the CAL, had been on the CIA payroll for 30 years–since the National Liberation Movement (MLN) was organized by the CIA to overthrow progressive President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman of Guatemala. Further articles by Anderson reported that CAL, which operated out of Guadalajara, Mexico, was an outgrowth of Los Tecos.

As a result of this expose, Singlaub put pressure on Dr. Ku, the life-chair of WACL from Taiwan, to expel CAL. Ku complied but, as with the fascists in Europe, the disassociation was probably only nominal. A new Latin American wing, the zFederacion de Entidades Democraticas de America Latina (FEDAL), was begun with Dr. Carlos Barbieri Filho of Brazil as head. Barbieri Filho has connections to the Argentine AAA death squad. Moreover, former CAL chieftan Mario Sandoval Alarcon was present at the 1985 WACL convention in Dallas. (30)

WACL maintains offices in a Taipei, Taiwan government building, and runs its daily affairs out of "The Freedom Center," a cluster of buildings in Seoul, South Korea. WACL has an executive structure headed by an honorary chairman, chairman, executive board, and secretariat. It has eight regional organizations: Asian Pacific Anti-Communist League (APACL); North American Regional WACL Organization (NARWACL); European Council for World Freedom (ECWF); African Organization for Freedom and Democracy (AOFD); Federacion de Entidades Democraticas de America Latina (FEDAL); Middle East Solidarity Council (MESC); Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations (ABN); and World Youth Freedom League (WYFL). 

Funding: The U.S. affiliate, USWCF, had tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service from 1982 through 1987. (38) This enabled Singlaub to solicit tax-deductible donations from private parties. Singlaub reported that USWCF was raising $50,000 a month from a group of wealthy Texas conservatives including Nelson Bunker Hunt and Herbert Hunt.

An undetermined amount of WACL’s funding comes in non- monetary form. For example, a large donation of clothing was obtained from a Korean manufacturer at greatly reduced prices. WACL also receives support from other rightwing groups. Singlaub reported that he received commitments for $100,000 from a fundraising campaign with fellow members of the Council for National Policy. (35)

Activities: The purpose of the World Anti-Communist League is spelled out clearly in its name. WACL operates internationally to overcome and eliminate groups or governments considered to pose a "communist" threat. The group revised its charter in 1987 to include among its purposes the development of "political and psychological warfare methods in order to expose and counteract the evil designs and intrigues of Communist imperialism."

Much of the inspiration for WACL activities and the training in psychological and political warfare come from Taiwan. Training courses are offered, with all expenses paid by WACL, at the Political Warfare Cadres Academy in Peitou. Taiwan is no longer recognized by the United Nations and its government is only recognized by two dozen nations, half of which are in Latin America.

WACL activities in Central America expanded greatly in 1984 when Congress shut off all funds to the contra forces. Between 1984 and 1986 WACL became the principal publicly identified source of funding for the contras. Singlaub said that he "quite frankly used the WACL organization… to meet with some people who are capable of contributing" to the contra cause. He identified his three principal WACL sources for funding as Latin America, Taiwan, and South Korea.

Afghanistan: At its 1984 and 1985 conventions WACL voted to support the anticommunist mujahedeen rebels in Afghanistan. WACL was very active in the foundation and support of the Committee for a Free Afghanistan (CFA). CFA was founded in 1981 and was given office space at the Heritage Foundation.
CFA–directed by retired Major General J. Milnor Roberts, a board member of USCWF–raised large sums of money to purchase arms, ammunition and medical supplies for the mujahedeen.  In 1985 WACL, through USCWF, initiated "Project Boots" to bring humanitarian aid to the Afghan resistance. In 1988, General Daniel Graham, vice chair of USCFW, was one of an eight-man delegation that met with President Ronald Reagan in an effort to block the Geneva accords calling for a withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan.

Canada: After the U.S. Congress prohibited the CIA from further assistance to the contras in 1984, the Canadian WACL chapter became active in procuring and shipping goods to the contras. In 1984 and 1985 the Canadian WACL, Canadian Freedom Fdn (CFF), headed by John Gamble, a former conservative member of parliament, arranged a series of fundraising meetings for Singlaub, including some with members of parliament. (38) CFF also supported the WACL campaign on behalf of the mujahedeen in Afghanistan by raising funds and holding anti-Soviet demonstrations. (38) A WACL affiliate, the Freedom Council of Canada, was active in rallying anticommunist sentiment in Canada following the student protests in Tienanmen Square and the violent response by the Chinese government. The group claimed to rally the support of some 4,500 Chinese students studying in Canada. (55) The group is presently trying to act as official representative of the Vietnamese exile groups in North America, but as yet agreement has not been reached. (55)

Costa Rica: In 1986, Bernal Urbina Pinto headed the WACL chapter in Costa Rica and was vice president of FEDAL. FEDAL replaced CAL after it was expelled from WACL because of its fascist connections in 1984. Urbina Pinto was also the leader of the political group, Free Costa Rica Movement, which coordinated the Organization for the National Emergency (OPEN), a paramilitary, anti-terrorist force. OPEN trained thousands of peasants in the basic tactics of counterinsurgency.

In 1982, Argentinians came to Costa Rica to organize contra forces who had slipped across the border from Nicaragua. They worked with Urbina Pinto and the Free Costa Rica Movement.  Cuban exiles who are members of WACL also live in Costa Rica. Most notable among them is Nazario Sargen head of Alpha 66, a Cuban terrorist group and long-standing WACL member.

John Hull–whose ranch in Costa Rica was used as a base by the CIA and private groups to bring supplies and military support to the contras–is a member of WACL. In fact, WACL was considered by some to be the main CIA conduit in the supply network for the contras.

United States: The first WACL chapter in the U.S. was the American Council for World Freedom (ACWF) founded in 1970 by Lee Edwards. Edwards was the former director of Young Americans for Freedom, the youth arm of the John Birch Society. John Fisher of the American Security Council served as ACWF’s first chairman. The American Security Council is a virulently anticommunist group that originally focused on internal security. It currently heads up the rightwing lobby group the Coalition for Peace Through Strength, which includes among its members a number of members of Congress. In 1973, the ACWF, at the urging of board member Stefan Possony, complained to WACL about the fascist members from Latin America. The report was discredited, but in 1975, ACWF left WACL and its members drifted off to other groups in the New Right.

The second U.S. chapter of WACL (1975-1980), the Council on American Affairs, was headed by noted racialist Roger Pearson. During this period Pearson had strong links to the American Security Council.

Lieutenant General Daniel O. Graham, former director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, is on the board of USCWF. Graham is the head of High Frontiers, an organization promoting the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). He is also on the board of the Council for National Policy and has been an important figure in CAUSA, the major political arm of the Unification Church. Graham, Singlaub, Walter Judd, and John LeBoutillier are members of the American Freedom Coalition, an organization which is the result of a merger of a rightwing Christian lobby organization and an offshoot of the Unification Church.

John Carbaugh, chief aide to Jesse Helms, attended WACL conventions in 1980 and 1984. Upon receiving a memo from Carbaugh, Helms assisted in the creation of the Conservative Caucus, headed by Howard Phillips, who was working in Helm’s office at the time.

Lev Dobriansky, a former OSS officer in Germany in World War II, was chairman of the National Captive Nations Committee and on the U.S. WACL board in the 1970s. He was appointed U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas by President Ronald Reagan.

The Washington Post in December of 1984 reported Singlaub saying that,"he and others have sent millions of dollars in uniforms, food, medicine and other aid to contras or their families and to refugees in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala." He went on to say,"the Defense Department has helped to coordinate the private aid." In an Oct 1986 interview on "60 Minutes," Singlaub acknowledged that he and Col. Oliver North worked together to establish the Nicaraguan contra supply network.

The chairman of the Committee for a Free Afghanistan, Major General J. Milnor Roberts has been on the board of USCWF.  Roberts attended WACL conferences in 1980, 1983, and 1984. He has been a professor at Georgetown University when it was associated with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Ray Cline, on the USCWF board, has had a close association with WACL since he was stationed in Taiwan from 1958 to 1962 as CIA station chief. He was a deputy director of the CIA from 1964 to 1967.

Sayid Khybar, author of "The Afghan Contra Lobby," considers WACL a major factor in the preservation and power of the political rightwing. He wrote in 1988 that .".. it (WACL) is a coalition of three principal groups: Asian gangsters backed up by the remnants of the Japanese arm of the Axis and the Korean Central Intelligance Agency, former West German Nazis and their former East European collaborators, and elements from the Western intelligence community who were anxious to reorganize the fanatical refuse salvaged from the Hitler coalition for a new anti-Communist crusade."

Comments: WACL is an international, anticommunist, mercenary group available to rightwing governments around the world to assist in carrying out "extra-legal" activities. Since its inception it has been closely linked to the governments of South Korea and Taiwan. Fred Clarkson contends that "the Moon organization is an integral part of WACL, which in turn has played a pivotal role in the development and activities of the Unification Church." Jonathan Marshall, Peter Dale Scott, and Jane Hunter in their book The Iran-Contra Connection state that WACL has played a role in the drug-funded secret war of the CIA which began in the 1950s in the Far East, was active in Vietnam and now in Latin America."A leading institution in this historic continuity has been the drug-linked WACL, which between 1984 and 1986 was the principal publicly identified source of funding for the contras."

This organisation 'Prometheus' was apparently the progenitor of the WACL

Quote
The Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists was founded in 1929. It was sponsored during the 1930s by both British MI6 and German military intelligence, the Abwehr. British intelligence and political circles, up to and including Winston Churchill, also had designs during that decade for Ukrainian participation in projects such as Intermarium (a projected confederation of nations located between the Baltic, Black, Aegean, and Adriatic seas) and the Promethean League of ethnic minorities from regions within the USSR Several of these organizations were jointly sponsored by British and German operatives, as long as leading British circles remained openly supportive of the Nazis; thus the post- war relationship of MI6 with the Ukrainian nationalist underground involved not only picking up Nazi assets, but also retaking custody of projects in whose creation MI6 had been instrumental in the first place.9

The beliefs and platform of the OUN were pro-moted abroad for 50 years after the war, by successor organizations such as the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations (ABN) and the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA). The UCCA celebrates OUN leader Stepan Bandera as “one of Ukraine’s most devoted heroes and patriots.”


9. Stephen Dorril, MI6 (New York: The Free Press, 2000). Several chapters of this thoroughly annotated book concern British Intelligence and CIA operations involving Ukraine from the 1930s to the 1960s. Churchill worked on Intermarium with Austrian Count Richard Cou- denhove-Kalergi and the latter’s Pan-European Union, which Parvus had aided through his money connections in 1923, the year before his death. The OUN’s “Ukraine for the Ukrainians” dogma made it an unlikely candidate for participation in the pan-European projects, but Dorril documents the interaction of Intermarium’s chief Ukrainian  gure and link into the Vatican, Father Ivan Buchko of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Orthodox (Uniate) Church, with Mykola Lebed of the OUN(b) after the war.

Prometheism or Prometheanism (Polish: Prometeizm) was a political project initiated by Poland's Józef Piłsudski. Its aim was to weaken the Russian Empire and its successor states, including the Soviet Union, by supporting nationalist independence movements among the major non-Russian peoples that lived within the borders of Russia and the Soviet Union.

"The creator and soul of the Promethean concept, wrote Charaszkiewicz, was Marshal Piłsudski, who as early as 1904, in a memorandum to the Japanese government, pointed out the need to employ, in the struggle against Russia, the numerous non-Russian nations that inhabited the basins of the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas, and emphasized that the Polish nation, by virtue of its history, love of freedom, and uncompromising stance toward would, in that struggle, doubtless take a leading place and help work the emancipation of other nations oppressed by Russia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prometheism

I had never heard of this project before. Wasnt taught in schools. It sounds a lot like support for the jihad. Isnt Brzezinski Polish?

John K Singlaub

In the 1980s, Singlaub became involved in extreme right-wing politics. He joined the World Anti-Communist League (WACL). Established in 1966 by the intelligence organizations of Taiwan and South Korea to provide anti-communist propaganda. Fascists played an important role in the WACL and at least three European chapters of the organization were controlled by former SS officers from Nazi Germany.

With a $20,000 loan from Taiwan, Singlaub created the U.S. Council for World Freedom (USCWF) in 1981. Singlaub was an advocate of unconventional warfare, which he defined as "low intensity actions, such as sabotage, terrorism, assassination and guerrilla warfare.

Leesburg Pike has been called the 'Wahhabi Corridor' by some for its ties to 9/11 and Saudi financial support for terror.

The Dar Al-Hijrah mosque, whose leader appears to have helped to run the 911 attacks, sits at the corner of Virginia State Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) and Row Street.

But Leesburg Pike also appears in Prelude to Terror by Joe Trento, as summarised here:

Richard Viguerie is most commonly recognized as a leader of the “Religious Right.” What is not widely known is that Viguerie has deep ties to the Intelligence Community. Viguerie was a member of Korean intelligence agent Tongsun Park’s Georgetown Club (Trento 171). Park was a major player in the Koreagate scandal that shook Congress in the 1970s (171). Viguerie was collaborating with Park and the Korean CIA at the time (171).

Viguerie became deeper entrenched in the covert world in1979 when Thomas Clines, the former CIA covert operations agent, moved the Egyptian American Transport and Services Corporation (EATSCO) to 7777 Leesburg Pike, the home of Viguerie Company (171). The EATSCO offices were Viguerie’s tenants (171). EATSCO was part of a private intelligence network that was created to provide the CIA’s covert activity branch, known as the Directorate of Operations, with a means of evading Congressional oversight. Viguerie’s 7777 Leesburg Pike became the home of the private CIA (171-72). Many of Viguerie’s tenants were operatives of Edwin Wilson, the architect of the private intelligence network (171-72).

Wilson constructed the private CIA with a secretive bureaucrat named Theodore Shackley (xi). Shackley served in the CIA as an Associate Deputy Director of Operations and was known as a master of covert operations. In his book The Third Option: An Expert’s Provocative Report on an American View of Counterinsurgency Operations, Shackley wrote:

Senior intelligence officers like myself, who had experience in paramilitary operations, have always insisted the United States should also consider the third option: the use of guerilla warfare, counterinsurgency techniques and covert action to achieve policy goals… Political warfare is very often the stitch in time that eliminates bloodier and more costly alternatives.

Im surprised to find that Thierry Meyssan has written about this subject.

The World Anti-Communist League, international crime
December 2010.

...To combat the Soviet presence in Afghanistan, the American Security Council funded a thematic section of the WACL: the Committee for a Free Afghanistan (Committee for a Free Afghanistan) based in the Heritage Foundation. The operation begins on the occasion of an official visit by Margaret Thatcher and Lord Nicholas Bethell, department head of MI6, the United States and headed by General J. Milnor Roberts.

The Committee is directly involved in logistical support to “freedom fighters”, awarded by decision of CIA Director William Casey and run by Osama Bin Laden. The link between the WACL and the Saudi businessman Sheikh Ahmed Salah ensure Jamjoon collaborator of public works emporium Saudi Bin Laden Group, and a former Prime Minister of South Yemen.

In the Philippines, President Ferdinand Marcos who represents the WACL. But when it was overthrown in 1986, John K. Singlaub and Ray Cline arrive in the country to choose new partners there. Then create a guerrilla and paramilitary unit deposited in the general preference Fidel Ramos, a friend of Frank Carlucci, George H. Bush and Bin Laden.

In late 1981, McKay took part in a conference in Paris organized by Lord Bethell aimed at patching together an alliance of the more traditionalist groups of the mujahideen, under the banner of the Islamic Federation of Mujahideen. The groups included the National Islamic Front of Afghanistan of Pir Sayed Ahmad Gailani—the group most patronized by Lord Bethell; the Afghan National Liberation Front of Sebghatullah Mojaddidi; and the Islamic Revolutionary Movement of Mohammed Nabi Mohammedi.

CFA was also engaged in raising funds for Radio Free Kabul, International Medical Aid, and Doctors Without Borders.

Some of CFA's key figures included:

Maj. Gen J. Milnor Roberts, chairman of the CFA board of directors, a member of the board of the U.S. branch of World Anti-Communist League (WACL) during the 1980s, and executive director of the Reserve Officers Association. In 1984, Roberts expressed satisfaction over the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, which he stated benefited the Afghan War against the Soviets. He also later told a journalist that the 1991 assassination of Rajiv Gandhi would help western interests in the region.

Charles Moser, professor of Slavic Studies at George Washington University.

David Isby, author of a book for Jane's Defense Weekly of Britain, which analyzed Soviet weaponry. Isby was working for Rep. Bobbi Fiedler (R-Calif.) when he joined the CFA. He later became a contributing editor and Soviet analyst for Soldier of Fortune magazine.

Brig. Gen. Theodore Mataxis, who served as a "military adviser" to the mujahideen, and also paid regular visits to the Salvadoran-based Contras, and the Cambodian rebels in Thailand. From 1986-70, Mataxis was a senior officer with the Army's Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG) in Iran.
The list of CFA's Council of Advisers also included Gen. John Singlaub, the former international president of WACL who was deeply involved in various Iran-Contra operations; former U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency head Gen. Daniel Graham; former Reagan-Bush administration National Security Adviser Richard V. Allen; Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.), Claiborne Pell, Paul Tsongas (D-Mass.), and Paul Simon (D-Ill.); and Representatives Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Gerald Solomon (R-N.Y.), Mickey Edwards (R-Okla.), and Charles Wilson (D-Tex.).

Other members of its advisory council included Washington Times editor Arnaud de Borchgrave, whose cousin Alexander de Marenches was then running French intelligence; and two known CIA operatives, Louis Dupree and Thomas Goutierre. A Peace Corps veteran of Afghanistan, Goutierre is now the director of the Center for Afghan Studies at the University of Nebraska. Dupree, formerly with the U.S. Military Academy, has written a book on Afghanistan and also authored many articles for Soldier of Fortune during the Afghan War.

Fundraisers for the CFA included the Bush-linked televangelist Pat Robertson, former Ambassador Angier Biddle Duke, and former U.S. Attorney General Eliot Richardson.

Allen Dulles, William Buckley and the Nazi International
Over the last two years a global reorganization of the fascist Malmo International has occurred, pulling out of the woodwork the postwar remnants of the secret police and intelligence services of the defeated Axis powers, especially the Nazis who regrouped in networks like Odessa, HIAG, and Die Spinne ("The Spider"). Together with their heirs, these old Nazis are being used to assist in preparation for a wave of regional destabilizations by separatist armies and for political assassinations by both left- and right-wing terrorist groups.

Daily coor­ dination of this fascist international is carried out through monarchical cults like the Knights of Malta, whose many branches unite the oligarchy; through the British Secret Intelligence Service and its factional allies in other nations; through an interlocking network of banks, corporations, and law firms, many of which helped fund Hitler and Mussolini; and through such affiliates of the Malmo International as the European Center for Documentation (EDCI), Pan-Europa Union, Euro-Droit, and the World Anti-Communist League.

In the Balkans, lord Nicholas Bethell is currently overseeing a Balkan destabilization that includes play­ ing off Serbo-Croatian hostilities in Yugoslavia and pitting Yugoslavia against Albania.

In the Middle East, the lebanese Falange has long served as a vehicle of the British and the warhawk faction of Israel to keep the region unstable. Pierre Gemayel, the founder and current head of the Falange, traveled to Germany in 1936 to attend the infamous Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. The congress was also attended by other Arab fascist groups under the ideological sway of the Grand Mu i of Jerusalem, including the "Green Shirts" and Muslim Brotherhood, who are the Falange's behind-the-scenes allies.

The Malmo network of right-wing fascists and the strange case of Francois Genoud
Today, Genoud's Arab connections are still numer­ous. Of special importance are his relations with Ben Bella, now freed from jail in Algeria, and the aging Dr. Said Ramadhan, the acknowledged leader of the Egyp­ tian Muslim Brotherhood, based for years at the Islamic Center of Geneva. Not by coincidence, Ben Bella and Ramadhan, now based in London, are currently work­ ing together. At the end of last year, they set up a secret international leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood including Alem Azzam, the chairman of the London­ based Islamic Council of Europe. On top of the priori­ ties list was to "get rid of President Mubarak of Egypt." Genoud's involvement in such an operation is most likely. In late March he was seen in Algiers meeting with Ben Bella, and it may be that he was the one who mediated the new relationship between Ben Bella and Ramadhan.

Indeed, tracing Gaston Amaudruz's affiliates in West Ger­many today, one finds a rightwing ecologist newspaper in Bochum, with which Amaudruz's friend Ties Chris­tophersen was formerly affiliated. Christophersen is presently living in exile in the Benelux, with a warrant for his arrest waiting for him should he return to Germany. The warrant was issued after the publication of his book, The Lie of Auschwitz. in which he denied the existence of the Nazi gas chambers. Christopher­ sen's lawyer Rieger is a leader of the Gesellschaft fUr Biologische Anthropologie, a think tank with interna­tional associates. According to Rieger himself, this think tank and its affiliates constitutes what people on the left refer to as "the racist international." It is associated with such institutions as the French New Right of Alain de Benoist and his Ecole Nouvelle, the Mankind Quarterly of the Scottish Sir Robert Garye, a direct affiliate of the Malmo International, Armin Mohler, and numerous others who are knowingly or not, front men for the old Nazi International, and the key shadowy figure of Francois Genoud, who published last year The Political Testament of Hitler and is pub­lishing this spring The Last Political Notes of Martin Bormann.

Fourth Reich plot revealed
Jewish group uncovers secret papers that prove conspiracy by 'Odessa File' Nazis
DANIEL JEFFREYS New York Friday 6 September 1996

Secret United States documents uncovered by a Jewish human rights group have proved the existence of a Nazi support group that sought to smuggle people and gold out of Germany in 1945, and worked for the establishment of a Fourth Reich.

The group is vividly portrayed in Frederick Forsyth's novel The Odessa File. Mr Forsyth confirmed yesterday that his novel was based on reports of a meeting in France in August 1944. This meeting is detailed in US documents seen by The Independent which were collected by a top-secret intelligence operation called Project Safehaven at the end of the war.

Few people believed Frederick Forsyth when he said the villain of The Odessa File, Eduard Roschmann, the Butcher of Riga, was a real character, writes Steve Boggan. Or that a meeting of high-ranking SS officers and industrialists took place at the Maison Rouge hotel in Strasbourg in 1944 to discuss ways of moving Nazi gold out of Germany and France.

Yet Mr Forsyth always insisted that large elements of his book were true, based on information from "friends in low places". The US report talks of a meeting at the Hotel Rotes Haus. "I believe there were a number of meetings there at which the SS and industrialists carved up much of the proceeds of the Third Reich," he said.
