Robert Spencer: How the ‘Palestinians’ were invented…

The Soviet Union with the help of Yasser Arafat created the ‘Palestinians’ out of thin air to be able to delegitimize and propagandize against the state of Israel. Those that we call ‘Palestinians’ were referring to themselves, in 1947, as Jordanians, Egyptians, Syrians, etc. Nobody thought of himself as a ‘Palestinian’. The Soviet Union and the Eastern Block were able to do that by exploiting the remnants of WWII antisemitism and by tapping into the endless reservoir of hatred for the Jews that lies in the Koran and in the religion of Islam and that you can find in any Arab-Muslim country to this day.

Makis « Hammer » Voridis: The return of Thor and the rise of Wotan in Greece?

The picture that you can see here in this post by anti-fascist researcher and radio host Dave Emory is reminiscent, as he points out, of the fascis, « a bun­dle of rods bound together with an axe head joined to it ». The fascis was chosen by Mussolini to describe the Corporate State. As it is rightfully brought to our attention by Mark Ames in this article, the new « Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks », Makis « Hammer » Voridis, was seen and photographed during his youth chasing down leftist students with a hammer on campus in Greece. He was the leader of a group of fascist students called « Student Alternative » at the University of Athens law school. The character of Voridis himself and his use of a hammer/axe is exemplarily relevant in this context and it opens the doors wide open for me.

Fascism, in its essence, is not a Christian phenomenon. Although it has shown signs of affection for crosses and other Christian symbols, we can’t really say it implies any particular relationship with Christianity. On the contrary. Fascism, and we have seen it in full light with Nazism, is derived rather from the Norse/Scandinavian and/or Germanic mythology, expressed notably in the sacred books of the Eddas. This mythology is centered on the need and the desire to wage war, to prepare for battle, to conquer. There is nothing « Christian » about it. The symbols chosen by Nazi Germany, the torches, the swastika, the crosses, the flags, all these things were realigned to satisfy the needs of a religion of war, destruction and bloodshed. The fact that Mussolini chose the fascis to describe his project for Italy is not incidental and the fact that Makis Voridis used such an instrument in the past is literally a sign, even if it is a bad one, from the heavens to give us a clue. As Emory points out, a fascist junta took power in Greece in 1967 and its leaders were drawn form the residua of WWII collaborationists who were running the local government for the Third Reich.

But there is something that speaks volumes even more. One of the main characters of Norse/Scandinavian mythology is Thor, son of Odin. Well, it just happens that Thor always goes to battle with his favorite companion, Mjöllnir, a hammer… Thor was even integrated in the more modern mythology of Marvel Comics in the sixties. A blockbuster film was made last year about it. And when we know the business connections that exist between American and German corporations and their influence in the rise of fascism in Europe, it is not a surprise. More specifically in terms of Germanic mythology, Odin has its equivalent in the god Wotan. Great psychologist Carl Gustav Jung has written a text on the cult of Wotan and its relationship with the rise of Nazism in Germany and his contemporary criticism remains certainly as valid today as it was yesterday. Wotan is the « the god of storm and frenzy, the unleasher of passions and the lust of battle; moreover he is a superlative magician and artist in illusion who is versed in all secrets of an occult nature ». Sounds familiar with a guy named Hitler? Jung analyses several important aspects of German culture and literature, such as Nietzsche and his masterpiece Thus Spake Zarathustra, the inheritage of Meister Eckhart, the relationships between Wotan and Dionysus, among other things.

So, my friends, I would ask you, is Makis « Hammer » Voridis, an incarnation of Thor, descending form the skies…or just another puppet of a fascist takeover of Greece that is to come really soon?

Uncle Sam and Nazism: The role played by Henry Ford and other industrialists in the rise of the Third Reich

Dave Emory’s For The Record show #511 revisits the broadcast of May 23rd 1980 in which connections between American industrialists and financiers and their German counterparts during WWII were explored. Among many others, the role played by Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford is discussed at considerable length. First, Henry Ford published a very important book that would prove to be instrumental in the rise of both fascism and anti-semitism in Europe, titled The International Jew. Hitler praised Henry Ford for the book, which became the basis of his ideological views on the economy, the nation and on the Jews. It is said that Hitler literally copied several portions of The International Jew and incorporated them into his own book, Mein Kampf, besides being influenced as well by another very important publication of this era, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a fake manifesto describing a worldwide plot by the Jews to take over the world, was written by the Tsarist police to discredit the Bolshevik revolution. Ford financed Hitler considerably and his stature as an industrialist greatly contributed to give Hitler and the Nazis credibility. Hitler eventually awarded him with the Grand Cross of the German Eagle on July 1938. Also, Ford’s son was named on the board of directors of American I.G., the American counterpart of I.G. Farben of Germany, a company that would play a key role for the Reich before and during WWII. Among other things, they are the ones who manufactured the Zyklon-B gas that was used to kill the Jews in concentration camps.

Emory explores the role played by I.G. Farben, German General Electric, United Steel, ITT, the Rockefeller family, the Bush family, Brown Brothers Harriman, Sullivan and Cromwell, and other interests who were ready to work in favor of Germany. A lot of « arrangements » made during WWII between American and German companies and/or subsidiaries. After all, business had to continue despite of the war. For example, the reinsurance sector led to a lot of leakage in intelligence as American insurance companies were reinsuring assets, such as boats about to depart for Europe, in Munich. As the Germans knew in advance what ship would leave on a particular date with a specific cargo, all they had to do was to send submarines along the shores of America and wait for the targetted boats and sink them. Another element that was instrumental in the success of the Third Reich, at least at the beginning of the war, was the technology transfer and licensing being done under the Rockefeller company Standard Oil of New Jersey and General Motors to I.G. Farben, for the fabrication of synthetic oil: the hydrogenation process, iso-octane and tetra-ethyl lead technologies and butyl rubber. It allowed Hitler and the Nazis to go forward with their war plans and proceed with the invasion of Poland and other countries. If that transfer of technology had not happened, WWII would not have occured in the first place.

9/11: Pearl Harbor Meets the Reichstag Fire

This archive show from anti-fascist researcher and radio personality Dave Emory takes a look at 9/11 on a military and symbolic point of view. Like the title of this show suggests, 9/11 appears to have been engineered, orchestrated and executed by elements of the Underground Reich as a way to draw the United States into a new war, or into the continuation of WWII. Elements faithful to the previous Third Reich infrastructure, along with their domestic enablers and accomplices inside the U.S., have concocted this massive terrorist act in order to draw the U.S. into the Middle East, and at the same time to jeopadize democracy in the U.S., that’s why the metaphor of the Reichstag Fire is employed here. In a nutshell, the fire of the Reichstag, the German Parliament, opened the doors wide open for Hitler, who just got into power a few weeks earlier, to consolidate his grip, obtain supplementary powers and more or less abolish democracy. In all probabilities, the fire was set by the Nazis themselves. Since a couple of decades, the Underground Reich has been busy uniting elements of the Islamic world. The Reich has worked to unite various elements and interests among Sunni, Shia and secular groups and tendencies. The ultimate goal is to get the United States and Britain out of the Middle East to secure the oil reserves for the Underground Reich. To understand the complexities of this « Great Game », as Brzezinski would say, one has to realize that many people in America and in the western world, among the intelligence and political apparatus, play both sides of the fence, like they did before and during WWII. So, whatever side wins this Great Game, having invested on both sides, these Underground Reich elements will win and cash in the profits.

More precisely, the Underground Reich has exploited a vulnerability in our foreign policy toward the Middle East, and now the world is safer…for Saudi Arabia. The Umma, the international community of Muslims, has awaken. In order to do so, the Reich has exploited social and cultural weaknesses that were afflicting Arab/Muslim countries: failed societies, the million of dead in the Iran-Irak War, the millions of Arab/Muslim refugees, the fact that oil doesn’t benefit the local populations, the fact that the war with Israel is in a deadlock and the fact that political reform didn’t bring democracy. As a result, religion became politicized. If yesterday America and the West used to mingle in the internal affairs of other countries overseas, now it is the Arab/Muslim countries that are trying to influence American policies. And they succeed.
