The Flotilla, HAMAS, Conspiracism, American Ultranationalism and anti-semitism --- the Nazi Connection

This is a rough outline of my thoughts, and what I hope to flesh-out in the future. It helps make sense of a lot of seemingly disparate things. I recommend reading the articles cited at the end - they make clear the background connections much better than I can......though their focus is not quite the same as mine.

This is from RadicalPress - Arthur Topham's anti-semitic conspiracy site:
Curt Maynard made a stir with his ‘controversial’ article that was picked up by sites like Whatreallyhappened. Let’s look at a salient point in Curt Maynard’s “It’s the Jews, Stupid“:

Topham mentions Henry Makow in his preamble to publishing Maynard's "It's the Jews Stupid!", and Maynard mentions J Edgar Steele.

Notice the ready acceptance of the fact such articles were "picked-up by sites like WhatReallyHappened."

Conspiracy sites. anti-semitic sites. "pro-palestinian" (or at least anti-jew) sites. All the same thing. Rivero publicised the "No More Wars for Israel", remember?

And Al Qaida didn't do 911.........so the conspiracists say. And HAMAS are "freedom fighters" whilst the Jews are "nazis".

See the relationships? I wonder if I am making this clear in the way I need to........

WRH - Topham - Maynard if he was still alive - Makow - Alex Jones - Halfway --- will all be promoting the flotilla fiasco, and how it represents the innate evil of jews, and they'll be suggesting it is just more proof of their control of the world (america)....the media....etc. All whilst portraying the HAMAS as "freedom fighters"....IHH as "a humanitarian group"....the provocation as "self-defence" etc etc etc.

They seem very strange bedfellows........HAMAS and 911 conspiracism, HAMAS and american ultranationalism, etc. But the reasons for the crossover and all the shared positions is obvious no?

Well, it is clearer when one recognises the influence of Nazism, and the debt both groups have to Nazism. Both groups are riddled with nazi influences, both now and in their respective histories.

The reasons for the mutual support between far-right 911 conspiracism and HAMAS are based on real shared views and a genuine confluence of shared goals and analysis - which has its original source in Nazism. (there might be further shared influences or causes even further back)

That's why they look the same today. That's why HAMAS are "freedom fighters".....why AQ is innocent.....why "the jews did 911"....and why "palestine is 'a prison'"

Underlying both is a form of ultranationalism - combined with anti-semitism. even in the American form it can be pretty religious, right? Notice that even the secular conspiracist criticisms of Israel as a supposedly radical religious state fail to address radical Islam in such terms - it's ignored entirely. Likewise the ultranationalism of American conspiracism fails to generate any self-realisation about hypocrisy over jewish nationalism. American nationalism is fine - essential and central - but the same people view Israel's nationalism as a problem (racism! they call it). The same people will again totally endorse Palestinian ultranationalism without recognising their apparent hypocrisy ---- even supporting terrorism and the murder of civilians in the cause of HAMAS' clerical ultranationalism, and commitment to Ummah - some pan-Islamism. All whilst these same people consider the mere existence of Jewish nationalism as "the problem".

We can see this most clearly by recognising what both HAMAS and 911 conspiracism/'Patriot movement' consider their foe - JEWS. That's the core enemy, and the core goal is restoration of true national identity and control by.....annihilation of supposed vast jewish power. The same central goals and motivations as Nazi Germany. By sheer coincidence? Sure.

The mad notion of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy, suppressed in Germany since May 8, 1945, survived and flourished in the political culture of the Arab world. An especially striking example is the charter adopted in 1988 by the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine, better known as Hamas.

In the Charter, the Jews are accused of being behind all the shocks of modernity: “They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. (They are) behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion.” In addition, they are held responsible for every major catastrophic event in modern history: The Jews "were behind the French Revolution [and] the Communist Revolution. . . . They were behind World War I . . . they were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state. . . . There is no war going on anywhere, without having their finger in it. . . . Their plan," states Article 32 of the charter, "is embodied in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."

For example, in the “Letter to the American People” of November 2002, which the report repeatedly cites, bin Laden warns: “The Jews have taken control of your media, and now control all aspects of your life making you their servants and achieving their aims at your expense.” Osama goes on: “Your law is the law of rich and wealthy people. . . . Behind them stand the Jews who control your policies, media and economy.” Yet the report’s authors inexplicably fail to see the significance of these words and the ideology behind them.
Substitute religious for racial purity, the idealized ummah of the rule of the four righteous caliphs of the mid-7th century for the mythical Aryan "Volksgemeinschaft", and most ideological and organizational precepts of Nazism laid out by chief theoretician Alfred Rosenberg in his work The Myth of the 20th Century and by Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf, and later put into practice, are in all essential respects identical to the precepts of the Muslim Brotherhood after its initial phase as a group promoting spiritual and moral reform. This ranges from radical rejection of "decadent" Western political and economic liberalism (instead embracing the "leadership principle" and corporatist organization of the economy) to endorsement of the use of terror and assassinations to seize and hold state power, and all the way to concoction of fantastical anti-Semitic conspiracy theories linking international plutocratic finance to Freemasonry, Zionism and all-encompassing Jewish world control.

Not surprisingly then, as Italian and German fascism sought greater stakes in the Middle East in the 1930s and '40s to counter British and French controlling power, close collaboration between fascist agents and Islamist leaders ensued. During the 1936-39 Arab Revolt, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of German military intelligence, sent agents and money to support the Palestine uprising against the British, as did Muslim Brotherhood founder and "supreme guide" Hassan al-Banna. A key individual in the fascist-Islamist nexus and go-between for the Nazis and al-Banna became the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini - incidentally the later mentor (from 1946 onward) of a young firebrand by the name of Yasser Arafat.

A central role in the propaganda offensive was played by a Nazi wireless station, now almost totally forgotten. Since the 1936 Berlin Olympics a village called Zeesen, located to the south of Berlin, had been home to what was at the time the world’s most powerful short-wave radio transmitter. Between April 1939 and April 1945, Radio Zeesen reached out to the illiterate Muslim masses through daily Arabic programmes, which also went out in Persian and Turkish. At that time listening to the radio in the Arab world took place primarily in public squares or bazaars and coffee houses. No other station was more popular than this Nazi Zeesen service, which skilfully mingled antisemitic propaganda with quotations from the Koran and Arabic music. The Second World War allies were presented as lackeys of the Jews and the picture of the "United Jewish Nations" drummed into the audience. At the same time, the Jews were attacked as the worst enemies of Islam: "The Jew since the time of Muhammad has never been a friend of the Muslim, the Jew is the enemy and it pleases Allah to kill him".

To my surprise Hamas turns out to be a Nazi-influenced, anti-Semitic, conspiratorial group, which sees religion as all, is primarily concerned with its competition against Fatah, and has the ultimate objective of the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate of old, an objective it shares fully with Al Qaeda. Hamas views on Jihad, Martyrdom, Western conspiracies against Islam since it was founded, and the absolute primacy of Islam in the world and in all areas of life are, to my amazement, nearly identical to those of Al Qaeda.

The Hamas Covenant, which is widely available and should be read by anyone interested in this issue, comprehensively reflects the views of Hassan al- Banna, Sayyid Qutb, and Abdullah Azzam, respectively the founder, key ideological influence, and patron of the Muslim Brotherhood.

These three, are (as set out in my book on the subject) also core ideologists of Al Qaeda , bringing their radical views on Jihad, militant Islam, martyrdom, the importance of a tiny vanguard leading the masses in the "right" direction, and a deep--seated belief in worldwide conspiracies, especially against the one true religion, Islam, into this completely religious document. The Oxford dictionary definition of a covenant is "An agreement held to be the basis of a relationship of commitment with God". The Hamas Covenant begins with the words: "In the name of the most merciful Allah", and very much continues in that vein.

The second paragraph of the Covenant contains a key quotation from Hassan al Banna -- "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

Sayyid Qutb, the godfather of Al Qaeda, wrote a paper in 1950, Our struggle with the Jews, which says: "the Jews were the enemies of the Moslem community from the first day... This bitter war which the Jews launched against Islam... Is a war, which has not been extinguished, even for one moment, for close on fourteen centuries, and which continues until this moment, its blaze raging in all corners of the earth... The Jews also utilised Christianity and idolatry in this comprehensive war... They attack every foundation of this religion in a Crusader-Zionist war." This is all Al Qaeda anti-semitic commentary and ideology and is clearly at the core of the Covenant and belief system of Hamas.

Abdullah Azzam , the patron of Hamas, coined the famous aphorism-"Jihad and the rifle alone: no negotiations, no conferences, and no dialogues”. This approach forms a core tenet of Al Qaeda and -as we will see - of Hamas.
These three core influencers on the Muslim brotherhood (the parent of Hamas ) are all highly anti-Semitic. Amplifying that anti-Semitism was the Nazi influence brought to the Muslim brotherhood and Hamas by the first leader of the Brotherhood in Palestine, Amin al -Husseini who held the office of Mufti of Jerusalem from 1921 onwords. The mufti spent most of the Second World War in Berlin with a staff of 60. A rabid supporter of Nazi Germany he broadcast on a Nazi Arabic-language station broadcasting out of the south of Berlin during the Second World War. After that war the Mufti was appointed leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and deputy to Hassan Al-Banna.

Before the war the Muslim Brotherhood, part funded by the Nazi regime in Germany, distributed copies of Hitler's Mein Kampf and the Mufti himself acknowledged that it was only due to the German funds he had received that it had been possible to carry through the Arab Uprising in Palestine between 1936 and 1939. It is notable that during that uprising , more murders and homicides occurred inside the Palestinian camp than were perpetrated against the Jews or British. This trait of internecine Palestinian conflict has, unfortunately been worsened with the arrival of Hamas on the scene.

With this dual heritage from key Al Qaeda ideologists and from Nazi Germany, it is easy to understand why anti-Semitic comments are scattered throughout the Covenant. These refer to supposed Jewish world cconspiracies,The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, supposed Jewish control of the League of Nations, the UN and the UN Security Council, and Jewish responsibility for all wars, the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution etc etc.

Sooo.. if I understand you correctly, the group that sponsored the flotilla deal that's been in the news is linked to these anti semitic Arab organizations?

the_last_name_left said...


and now it makes sense, right?


the_last_name_left said...

of course, not everyone involved is an anti-semitic, HAMAS supporting nut.......but they certainly are dupes for those that are.

the_last_name_left said...

Look into Muslim Brotherhood and IHH?

goes right to HAMAS, AQ and radical, extremist, terrorist Islam.

And a load of efforts at trying to distort, confuse and break the connections.

People have been suckered - and they've given a huge gift to anti-semitism, HAMAS and radical Islam.

From the Weekly Standard (never thought I'd be grateful to them!)

In other words, the IHH is an offshoot of the Union of Good, which is in turn an offshoot of the Brotherhood -- as is Hamas. It is a matter of basic logic, then, that if the IHH was one of the prime movers behind the flotilla then that means the Brotherhood itself was.

It is as simple as that. But there is much more.

Here's an excellent resource for tracing the American development of Mulsim Brotherhood:


It's actually really very dull......but.....necessary. The very first few and last paragraphs are the point - the rest is detail.

But yes : Muslim Brotherhood----> Hamas -->Union of Good -->IHH (the flotilla organisers)

From the link to the pdf:

"The leadership of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood (MB, or Ikhwan) has said that its goal
was and is jihad aimed at destroying the U.S. from within."

Since the early 1960s, the Brotherhood has
constructed an elaborate covert organizational infrastructure on which was built a set of public or
“front” organizations.

where detailed investigations have been made of U.S. Brotherhood organizations, they have revealed an extensive history of support for Islamic fundamentalism, anti-Semitism, and support for terrorism that has included ideological, financial, and legal support, particularly for Hamas and other Palestinian terror organizations.

I'm going to do a proper post hopefully sorting all this out, but in the meantime, there's all the stuff on IHH, MB and HAMAS etc here over at Trausti's:
