MAFIA KUALA SEPETANG: NIZAR, NGA, NGEH DAH GELABAH, MARAH DAN MAKI HAMUN POLIS.

0

Apabila media mula membongkar kegiatan mafia-mafia Kuala Sepetang dan pasukan petugas khas polis mula menyiasat dan akan mengambil tindakan, maka ada pihak yang selama ini penuh tembolok dan perutnya dengan duit haram mulai gentar.

Dulu mereka menang PRU pun adalah kerana sumbangan wang-wang yang diputihkan oleh mafia-mafia ini. Kini apabila pihak berkuasa akan mengambil tindakan mereka dah kecut telur dan cari pelbagai alasan untuk mengalihkan perhatian.

Mungkinkah adik beradik sepupu sepapat Nga, Ngeh dan Ngok (Nizar) mula gundah gulana. Sempadan Beruas, Taiping dan Kuala Sepetang sememangnya berkongsi bersama...dekat pula dengan Kuala Sepetang.

Sejak zaman penjajah lagi para taikong dan mafia menguasai sektor ekonomi dan politik daerah-daerah ini. 

Apabila berlakunya PRK Parlimen Bukit Gantang, apa yang kerajaan BN tak janji dan beri pada 'penduduk-penduduk' Kuala Sepetang?

Banyak duit ditabur kerana menagih undi 'kaum-kaum tertentu' itu. 

Dana sekolah, dana dewan, makan busat semuanya ada. Tapi si ketua mafia yang ada hubungan dengan pemimpin DAP negeri nampaknya lebih berkuasa.

Para gengster dihantar mengugut pengundi supaya jangan undi calon BN, sabotaj majlis MCA dan Gerakan dan halang pengundi Melayu keluar.

Hasilnya Nizar menang bergaya. Nga dan Ngeh gelak ketawa ternganga.

Semasa PRU 13 lalu ketiga-tiga Ngok ini menang bergaya di Parlimen Taiping, Beruas dan DUN Changkat Jering. Kalau lihat pada kempen tak sangka banyak duit mereka tabur.

Tapi dari mana duit yang mereka perolehi. Apakah ada kaitan dengan kegiatan mafia Kuala Sepetang yang dikenali sebagai Robin Hood?

Mengapa DAP bising-bising nasib nelayan pesisir laut di pantai barat Perak yang majoritinya berbangsa Cina yang didakwanya tertindas dan memohon diberi lebih banyak subsidi diesel. Hasil tangkapan tak banyak tapi bising tuntut hak itu dan ini.  
Demo nelayan di Kuala Sepetang...sengaja dicipta untuk beri imej buruk pada kerajaan BN. Hakikatnya adalah untuk sembunyikan kegiatan haram jual diesel di tengah-tengah lautan.

Demo mintak harga diesel murah kemudian jual di tengah lautan dengan harga mahal. Taktik mudah cari duit dengan kerja haram lepas tu tuduh kerajaan BN zalim.

Ketua Mafia ini juga boleh membeli mana-mana pegawai penguatkuasa kerajaan yang korup dan berkurap  dengan wang, perempuan dan segalanya untuk tidak mengambil tindakan menghalang aktiviti haram mafia Kuala Sepetang.

Bukan setakat seludup arak, rokok kretek, dadah, jual diesel subsidi bahkan melarat pada seludup PATI dan senjata semuanya dibuat oleh mafia Kuala Sepetang. 

Yang kita hanya tahu sekarang hanya mee udang Kuala Sepetang. 

Mana-mana pegawai kerajaan atau penguatkuasa yang jujur akan ditukar serta didiamkan dengan pelbagai cara.    

Sebab itu kita jangan heran melihat mahligai Nga Kor Ming. Tu belum masuk lagi mahligai Ngeh Koo Ham dan  Nizar Jamaluddin.

Mahligai Nga Kor Ming...adakah ia sumbangan seseorang atau sesebuah sindiket?

Dari mana mereka dapat kumpul kekayaan, takkan mereka tak kenal siapa itu Robin Hood?

Kalau sumbernya dari duit haram, mesti kerjanya pun haram dan kesannya jadi haram jadah. Biarpun berkepiah dan berjubah litup, namun duit haram walaupun disamak, disolat hajatkan, diyassinkan dan ditawafkan sekalipun ia tetap haram.

 Sebab tu yang makan duit DAPig di Perak perangai pun macam haram, rosak dan merosakkan.

Patut beria bebenor Nizar sokong PASMA. Ate gitu criternya...

AZMIN TIDAK BENAR RAKYAT DIPERBODOH TURUN KE JALANAN

Pengarah Komunikasi Lensa Anak Muda Malaysia (LENSA), Syukri Razak berkata Timbalan Presiden PKR, Mohamad Azmin Ali pernah meminta Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim agar tidak mengheret rakyat turun ke jalanan semata-mata untuk membela isu peribadinya.

“YB Azmin Ali mungkin dia lupa pada PRU 13 tahun lepas, selepas kekalahan Pakatan Rakyat, dia sendiri pernah mengingatkan kepada rakyat atau memberi satu teguran sinis kepada Datuk Seri Anwar supaya jangan lagi susahkan rakyat, jangan lagi heret rakyat ke jalan raya..”katanya kepada KiniTV.

Syukri berkata demikian sebagai menjawab kenyataan ringkas Azmin yang berkata ‘jangan sekat hak rakyat berhimpun’ apabila ditanya wartawan tentang saranan LENSA.
“LENSA mengeluarkan surat atas satu maksud sarkastik (sindiran) supaya rakyat kembali menilai kenapa perlu rakyat turun dalam perhimpunan ‘Rakyat Hakim Negara’..
“Apakah Azmin Ali sewaktu dia mengeluarkan kenyataan pada tahun lepas, apakah dia juga bermaksud sindiran atau dia benar-benar membawa maksud ‘rakyat jangan lagi disusahkan’. Apakah dia benar-benar membawa maksud ‘rakyat sudah benar-benar letih’..”kata Syukri yang menafikan kenyataan LENSA sebelum ini bermaksud menyekat kebebasan rakyat berhimpun.
Menurutnya, rakyat bebas untuk berhimpun tetapi ia mesti ada sebab yang jelas untuk berbuat demikian.
Pada 8 Mei 2013, apabila PKR menganjurkan perhimpunan “Blackout 505″ di Stadium Kelana Jaya, Azmin telah mengeluarkan kenyataan menyindir tindakan Ketua Umum PKR itu agar bermuhasabah serta mengakui kelemahan sendiri atas kegagalan pakatan pembangkang memenangi Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13.
“Gagal ke Putrajaya, salah siapa? Ikuti penjelasan dalam masa terdekat.” antara kenyataan Azmin dalam akaun Twitter miliknya yang dilihat seperti ditujukan kepada Anwar.
Katanya lagi, laungan reformasi harus bermula dengan bisikan dalam hati sendiri dan jangan mengheret rakyat jika diri sendiri gagal.
Kenyataan Azmin itu merupakan tamparan terhadap Anwar yang pada waktu sama malam itu Ketua Umum PKR sedang berucap di hadapan ribuan penyokong pakatan pembangkang di Stadium Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya, bagi membantah keputusan PRU 13.
Dalam tweetnya lagi, Azmin turut meminta keputusan rakyat dalam pilihan raya lalu diterima.
“Terima keputusan rakyat. Maju ke hadapan dengan dasar peduli rakyat bukan membuli rakyat demi kesejahteraan dan kemakmuran negara.
“Rakyat letih dengan asakan politik melampau. Terima hukuman. Muhasabah diri. Akui kelemahan. Maju ke hadapan. Tumpu rakyat bukan kerabat.”

PARLIMEN KANADA KENA SERANG SEKARANG

0
(Reuters) - A gunman attacked Canada's parliament on Wednesday, with gunfire erupting near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was speaking, and a soldier was fatally shot at a nearby war memorial, stunning the Canadian capital.
The gunman in the parliament building was shot dead, and Harper was safely removed in incidents that may have been linked to Islamic militants.
Witness accounts indicated the man who shot dead the soldier guarding the National War Memorial in central Ottawa, went on to attack the parliament building minutes later. Canadian police said however they could not "at this point" confirm it was the same person.
The shootings followed an attack on two soldiers in Quebec on Monday carried out by a convert to Islam. Two U.S. officials said U.S. agencies had been advised the dead gunman in Wednesday's shootings was also a Canadian convert to Islam.
Witnesses said a flurry of shots were fired after a gunman entered the parliament building, pursued by police.
The assault took place very near the room where Harper was meeting with members of his Conservative party, a government minister said.
"PM (Harper) was addressing caucus, then a huge boom, followed by rat-a-tat shots. We all scattered. It was clearly right outside our caucus door," Treasury Board Minister Tony Clement told Reuters.
The incident, shocking in Canada's normally tranquil capital, began shortly before 10 a.m. ET (1400 GMT) and was not over late in the afternoon. Parliament and buildings in downtown remained on emergency lockdown at 6 p.m.
Canadian police were investigating a man named as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau as a possible suspect in the shootings, a source familiar with the matter said. U.S. government sources said the suspect was born Michael Joseph Hall but later changed his legal family name to Zehaf-Bibeau.
Security in Ottawa came under criticism after the gunman was able to run through the unlocked front door of the main parliament building. Police said an operation was under way to make parliament safe.
"It caught us by surprise... If we had known that this was coming, we would have been able to disrupt it," Gilles Michaud, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, (RCMP) told a news conference.
It was unclear whether there was any connection between Wednesday's shootings and an attack on Monday when a convert to Islam ran down two Canadian soldiers with his car, killing one, near Montreal, before being shot dead by police in the first fatal attack on Canadian soil tied to Islamic militants.
No group, Islamic or otherwise, claimed responsibility for either the attack in Ottawa or the one near Montreal. Monday’s attacker, 25-year-old Martin Rouleau, who converted to Islam last year, was among 90 people being tracked by the RCMP on suspicion of taking part in militant activities abroad or planning to do so.
Canada announced this month it was joining the battle against Islamic State fighters who have taken over parts of Iraq and Syria.
GUNS DRAWN IN PARLIAMENT
From witness accounts it appeared the suspect dashed into parliament, ran past the room where Harper was speaking and was gunned down outside the entrance to the library, only about 60 feet (20 metres) away.
Dramatic video footage posted by the Globe and Mail newspaper showed police with guns drawn inside the main parliament building. At least a dozen loud bangs can be heard on the clip, echoing through the hallway.
Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino, a former policeman, told the Toronto Sun that parliament's head of security, Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, shot dead a suspected gunman.
Canadian cabinet minister Jason Kenney said a guard in parliament buildings was also wounded in the incident.
Harper stressed that government and parliament should continue its work, a spokesman said. "While the prime minister stated that facts are still being gathered, he condemned this despicable attack," the spokesman said.
Harper, who was meeting with cabinet ministers on Wednesday evening, was expected to make a statement later in the day.
Canada said on Tuesday it had raised the national terrorism threat level to medium from low because of a rise in "general chatter" from radical groups such as Islamic State and al Qaeda but said there had not been a specific threat.
The RCMP's Michaud said the threat level on Parliament Hill had been on medium for some time.
The soldier who died in the shooting at the War Memorial was identified as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, according to his aunt.
Cirillo was a member of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, a regiment of Reserve Forces based in Hamilton, and was training to join the Canada Border Services Agency, a federal agency responsible for border and immigration enforcement, his aunt told The Globe and Mail.
It was not clear if Cirillo was armed or not when he was shot.
'YOU ARE IN DANGER HERE'
The attack on the heart of the country's government shook Canada's self-image as generally non-violent, particularly compared to the United States, where gun violence is much more common. Canadian cities and towns hiked security around government buildings, schools and mass transit systems.
As the drama in Ottawa unfolded, police in dark bulletproof vests and carrying automatic rifles flooded the streets near parliament, clearing several blocks of downtown Ottawa.
Some took cover behind vehicles and shouted to people to clear the area, saying: "We do not have the suspect in custody. You are in danger here."
When the shooting started, most members of parliament were in the two caucus rooms past which the gunman ran. Members were told to lock or barricade themselves in their rooms or offices, and stay away from the windows.
A tweeted picture sent from the room where the opposition New Democrats were holding a weekly caucus showed a pile of chairs jammed up against the main door to prevent anyone from entering.
U.S. officials said there was no specific indication of a similar attack in the United States, a strong Canadian ally, but reinforced warnings to Americans to be alert.
"As a matter of precaution due to recent events, the FBI has reminded our field offices and government partners to remain vigilant in light of recent calls for attacks against government personnel by terrorist groups and like-minded individuals," U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman Paul Bresson said.
Canadian and U.S. stock markets declined after the shootings in Ottawa. The Toronto Stock Exchange's TSX index dropped 1.6 percent, while the S&P 500 gave back 0.7 percent.
Mass shootings are relatively rare in Canada, which has stricter gun laws than the United States, and the regulations at one point included a national registry of rifles and shotguns. Legislation was passed in 2012 to scrap the registry.
Ottawa also has a low murder rate. There were nine homicides in 2013 and seven in 2012, in a city of 885,000 people. Compared with Capitol Hill in Washington, security on Parliament Hill is also fairly low key. Anybody could walk right up to the front door of parliament's Centre Block with arms and explosives without being challenged before entering the front door, where a few guards check accreditation.
Centre Block is the main building on Parliament Hill, a sprawling complex of buildings and open space in downtown Ottawa. It contains the House of Commons and Senate chambers as well as the offices of some members of parliament, senators, and senior administration for both legislative houses.
A construction worker who was on the scene in Ottawa when the shooting began told Reuters he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man with a scarf over his face running towards parliament.
"He was wearing blue pants and a black jacket and he had a double barrelled shotgun and he ran up the side of this building here and hijacked a car at gunpoint," construction worker Scott Walsh told Reuters.
The driver got out safely, then the man drove the car to the Centre Block, where construction work is under way, Walsh said.
The Canadian military closed its bases across the country to the public following the events in Ottawa, CBC TV said.
The attacks in Ottawa and Quebec took place as the Canadian government prepared to boost the powers of its spy agency, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Public Safety Minister Stephen Blaney said last Thursday the new legislation would let the agency track and investigate potential terrorists when they travel abroad and ultimately prosecute them.
Outside Washington, unspecified extra security was authorized at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, where ceremonial guards mount a constant watch, a U.S. Defense Department official said.

ISU MELAYU PENDATANG

1
The Malays Are Not Pendatang
Raja Petra Kamarudin

So Let Us Be Clear About The Definition Of Pendatang. All Those Malays Who Moved From One Island To Another But Within The Malay Archipelago Are Not Pendatang. It Is Just Like Malays From Penang Moving To Selangor. The Cut-Off Date Would Be After The Different Sovereign States Were Created In The 20th Century.
No Holds Barred

All The Three Key Races That Form Malaysia’s Majority — The Malays, Chinese And Indians — Are Immigrants Or Pendatangs, Even Though The Malays, As The Country’s Dominant Ethnic Group, Are Given Bumiputera Status, A Gerakan Delegate, Tan Lai Soon, Said Today.

Tan Said That Supporters Of Umno, Who Have In The Past Referred To The Chinese As Immigrants, Did Not Realise That Even The Malays Do Not Originate From Malaysia.

“I Want To Explain Malaysians’ Position. The Malays, Chinese, Indians, Are All Pendatangs (Immigrants) Other Than The Indigenous People, Sabahans, Sarawakians — The Original Bumiputera. So When Umno’s People Say The Chinese Are Pendatang, They Didn’t Think That They Are Also Pendatang From Indonesia,” Said Tan.

Actually, Tan Is Not Quite Correct Because He Is Looking At Malaysia As A Sovereign Nation Separate From Indonesia, Philippines And Southern Thailand. Those Are Boundaries Created By The European Colonialists Since The 16th Century. Prior To That, Indonesia, Philippines, Southern Thailand (Up To The Isthmus Of Kra), Singapore, East Timor And Brunei Did Not Exist. What Existed Was Just The Malay Archipelago.

The Malay Archipelago Has Been Defined As An Island Group Of Southeast Asia Between Australia And The Asian Mainland And Separating The Indian And Pacific Oceans. It Includes What We Now Call Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Southern Thailand (Up To The Isthmus Of Kra), Singapore, East Timor And Brunei.

About 1,400 Years Ago, At The Time Of Prophet Muhammad, The Malay Archipelago, The Name The Europeans Gave This Region, Was Part Of The Srivijaya Empire. In The 13th Century, This Was Replaced By The Majapahit Empire Until The 16th Century And Still Included Those Countries Mentioned.

The Language Of This Region Was Old Malay, Old Javanese And Sanskrit With Buddhism And Hinduism As Its Main Religions.

It Was In The 16th Century That The Spanish, Dutch And Portuguese Started Coming To The Malay Archipelago And Began Dividing Up The Territory, Just Like What The Europeans Did To The Ottoman Empire After The First World War (And The Cause Of All Those Problems In The Middle East Today).

Hence It Would Be Incorrect To Say That The Malays Are Pendatang Or Immigrants, At Least Not The Original Malays Of The 600s To 1800s. There Was Certainly Movement Of People Between The Different Islands As Well As The Malay Peninsula Plus Thailand. But These People Were Not Immigrants Because This Movement Was Still Within The Same Empire Or Territory.

When Tan Says That The Malays, Too, Are Immigrants To Malaysia, He Has To Clarify What Period He Was Referring To. The Straits Settlements, The Federated Malay States, The Unfederated Malay States And British Borneo Did Not Come Into Existence Until The 19th Century. From Then On British Malaya Came Into Being.

For Purposes Of History, All Those People Who Came To British Malaya Since 1850 Could Be Correctly Referred To As Pendatang Or Immigrants (The Date When The British Immigration Policy Was Launched To Bring In Chinese And Indians From China And India). Prior To 1850, We Cannot Call The Malays From Java, Sumatra, Etc., As Pendatang.

So Let Us Be Clear About The Definition Of Pendatang. All Those Malays Who Moved From One Island To Another But Within The Malay Archipelago Are Not Pendatang. It Is Just Like Malays From Penang Moving To Selangor. The Cut-Off Date Would Be After The Different Sovereign States Were Created In The 20th Century.

For Example, When My Family Moved To Selangor In The 18th Century, Selangor Was Not Yet Part Of British Malaya But Was An Independent Territory Under Perak Control. At That Time, The Bugis Johor-Riau Empire Controlled That Region. It Was Not Until The 19th Century When The British And Dutch Signed A Treaty In London That The Empire Was Carved Up And Eventually Ended.

Today, Any Bugis From Indonesia Who Comes To Selangor Can Be Called A Pendatang. But In The 18th Century We Were Not Pendatang. That Is A Historical Fact.

The Malay Archipelago Is The Largest Group Of Islands In The World, Consisting Of The More Than 17,000 Islands Of Indonesia And The Approximately 7,000 Islands Of The Philippines. The Principal Islands And Groups Of The Republic Of Indonesia Include The Greater Sundas (Sumatra, Java, Borneo, And Celebes), The Lesser Sundas, The Moluccas, And Western New Guinea.

For Reasons Which Depend Mainly On The Distribution Of Animal Life, I Consider The Malay Archipelago To Include The Malay Peninsula As Far As Tenasserim And The Nicobar Islands On The West, The Philippines On The North, And The Solomon Islands, Beyond New Guinea, On The East. All The Great Islands Included Within These Limits Are Connected Together By Innumerable Smaller Ones, So That No One Of Them Seems To Be Distinctly Separated From The Rest.

Anwar mahu kerajaan bertindak isu pendatang

Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengutuk mereka yang melabel rakyat Malaysia lain sebagai "pendatang" dan berkata kenyataan sebegitu dihukum berat di negara lain.

Anwar menceritakan kisah seorang senator di Amerika Syarikat yang dipaksa untuk meletakkan jawatan kerana mempersoalkan kedudukan rakyat Amerika keturunan Afrika.

"Ini masa untuk kita memandang ke hadapan dan memberi ruang kepada anak-anak kita untuk merasa mereka benar-benar merasa sebagai sebahagian negara ini, untuk dihormati, dan tidak dipersoalkan kerana ia melukakan perasaan orang lain.

"Ini masalahnya, mengapa bawa isu pendatang? Apa isunya?" kata Anwar ketika ditemui wartawan di majlis rumah terbuka Timbalan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang P Ramasamy hari ini.





Anwar turut mendesak Putrajaya untuk lebih tegas dan tidak hanya bercakap mengenai kepelbagaian kaum dan menolak ekstrimisme tetapi tidak bertindak ke atas mereka yang berbuat demikian.

Beliau berkata para ektrimis itu, sebenarnya menyokong kerajaan.

Sabtu lalu, seorang perwakilan Gerakan dalam mesyuarat agung tahunannya mengingatkan pemimpin Umno untuk tidak menggunakan kenyataan “pendatang” kepada bangsa lain.

Ini kerana, kata perwakilan Johor Tan Lai Soon (atas), orang Melayu juga sebenarnya pendatang di negara ini.(mkini)

ANWAR IMPIKAN CIA BANTU

How the CIA Helped The Muslim Brotherhood












The Muslim Brotherhood Mosque in Munich
In an interview in the New English Review, Sam Solomon had this comment about the functions of a Mosque:
A mosque is a seat of government. A mosque is a school. A mosque is a court. A mosque is a training center. A mosque is a gathering place, or social center. It is not a place of “worship” per se as understood and as practiced in Western societies.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ian Johnson illustrates that conclusively in his investigative book, “A Mosque in Munich: Nazis, CIA and the Rise of The Muslim Brotherhood in the West”. Johnson earned his Pulitzer for a Wall Street Journal series about the Chinese religious group, Fulan Gong. He has been a long time resident in Germany and until early in 2010, was the Berlin Bureau Chief for the Wall Street Journal. His book is about how an accidental discovery of a map in a “Londonistan” extremist Muslim bookstore, where he had been a regular customer, triggered five years of research into the MB mosque in Germany that led to his book. Johnson notes the accidental discovery:
Wandering the aisles, I noticed a peculiar map of the world. [. . .]Famous mosques decorated the edge of the map- the Grand mosque in Mecca, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, the wondrous Blue Mosque of Istanbul and the Islamic Center of Munich.
Johnson goes on to note:
Almost all of the Brotherhood’s activities in the West originated among the small groups of people who ran the Mosque. Munich was the beach-head from which the brotherhood spread into Western society.
But he notes the cautionary aspect of this tale:
The parallel between the 1950’s and today are striking. [. . .]. Now like a half century ago in Munich, western societies are seeking Muslim allies . . . Munich shows the danger of doing so without careful reflection and scrutiny.
To which we would add the dangers of an intelligence community thoroughly mis-informed about basic Islamic Jihad doctrine. A doctrine that most post WWII administrations in Washington have evaded acknowledging as the primary threat facing this county and the West in the 21st century.
Watch this You Tube Video by author Ian Johnson at the New American Foundation discussing his book, A Mosque in Munich.
Gerhard von Mende, ex-Nazi Turkologist
The mosque in the Munich saga begins with the seminal role played by ex- Nazi Turkologist and antisemite Gerhard von Mende, an ethnic German, born in Riga, Latvia. He held a PhD in Soviet Studies and Economics from Berlin University and ultimately became a full professor there. Von Mende was a talented linguist, spoke Turkish and several Central Asian variants, Arabic, Russian, French, English and even Norwegian, his wife’s native language. Von Mende also wrote blatant antisemitic tracts. Johnson notes this from a von Mende book, “The Peoples of the Soviet Union”:
Bolshevism has given a push to the expansion of those Jewish circles, which reject all alliances except for a blood-defined cliquish confederacy . . . It seems that the main danger of Judaism for other peoples lies in the fact that it is a unit not comparable to a nation, but in its unity it surpasses the unity of some nations.”
Johnson notes that von Mende engaged in such screed because:
“. . . his reason for hating Jews was exactly his reason for embracing Soviet Muslims. He rejected Jews because of their extra-national links, yet he advocated the use of Soviet Muslims precisely because of their lack of allegiance to the Soviet state.
Von Mende, while at Berlin University, wrote extensively about Muslim irredentism in the Soviet Caucasus, Crimea and Central Asian republics, the latter referred to as Turkistan. Pre-war books by von Mende predicted the rise of independent Muslim states if a “severe shock” to the Soviet Union occurred either by invasion, akin to the failed German attack during WWII, or what occurred in the wake of the fall of the Soviet empire and its break up in 1991.
When Nazi Germany launched Operation Babarossa, the invasion of Soviet Russia in June, 1941, von Mende joined the Hitler-era Ostministerium – the bureaucracy for administering the occupied territories in the East – to build an initiative aimed at cultivating irredentist Muslim movements in overrun Soviet territory.
Von Mende was one of the mid-level bureaucrats who participated in the Wannsee conference in January 1942. The Ostministerium oversaw the implementation of the Final Solution of the Nazi Holocaust of European Jews. Despite SS engineered overhauls in 1943 of the Ostministerium, von Mende survived to become overall head of the Foreign Peoples Division, with overall responsibility for dealing with irredentist Muslim communities in Soviet areas overrun by the German army.
In the initial Nazi invasion of Russia hundreds of thousands of Soviet Muslim soldiers were captured. These Muslim Soviet POWs were initially maltreated. A German officer and Uzbek ex-pat living in Germany, Veli Kayum, entered the camps and enlisted their aid in forming fighting military units to combat their former Soviet masters. Kayum ultimately becomes head of a Turkestan National Liberation Council.
Another Uzbek and von Mende protégé, Baymirza Hayit, became liaison to the German High Command. Several hundred thousand former Soviet Muslim POWs joined this effort and formed Waffen SS units akin to those in the Balkans, like the Bosnian Handshar or Dagger Division. One such Caucasian unit had regular German uniforms with a distinctive patch (Biz Alla Bilen – “God With Us”).
These Soviet Muslim cadres in German units were used in the unsuccessful relief of Stalingrad and as special ops units in Operation Zeppelin. That operation involved the parachuting of Soviet Muslims into Russian territory equipped with maps and radios as pathfinders and possible saboteurs of petroleum complexes in Grozny and Azerbaijan in the Caucasus. Other former Soviet Muslim POWs become functionaries at the Ostministerium in Berlin and were organized into national liberation desks engaged in propaganda broadcasts –a model for post WWII CIA-funded efforts at Radio Liberty.
One of those who figures in post-WWII activities with the CIA funded Radio Liberty is Tatar, Garip Sultan, who held the Tatar liberation desk at the Nazi Ostministerium. Sultan was promoted to military governor of the Tartar provisional government by the Nazis. One of von Mende’s initiatives bore significant results when over 20,000 Tatars joined Waffen SS auxiliaries after the Nazis took the Crimea. Von Mende reached out to Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini and asked him to consider taking the post of Mufti for the conquered Crimea. Von Mende wrote Husseini:
The Islamic world is a whole . . . German action towards Moslems in the east must be such as not to prejudice Germany’s standing among all Islamic Peoples.”
Hitler, when queried about the Waffen SS formation of these Soviet POW Muslims, considered them as “safe.” As we know from the biography of his munitions chief Albert Speer, Hitler was an admirer of Islam and Jihadism. However the rollback by Soviet forces in 1944 put a stop to that effort.
With the collapse of the Nazi eastern front, von Mende arranged for Muslim units to be transferred to the Western front so as to fall into British and US hands. These units were fighting for the national liberation of their Muslim homelands and attempting to practice their faith. He thought might appeal to the Americans in particular.
His thinking may have been the result of an encounter with fabled OSS agent “Ruppert” during the late stages of WWII in Germany when he interviewed von Mende about the anti-Soviet Muslim national liberation activities and contacts at the office he headed in the Ostministerium. Von Mende sought possible refuge by crossing into Switzerland, only to be returned to Germany as the War in Europe came to a close.
In October, 1945 Von Mende made contact with the British who appeared to be interested in his Ostministerium network because of the Promethean League members who were anti-Soviet émigrés. Some Muslim units interviewed by US Army CIC evaded return to ultimate imprisonment and death in a Soviet Gulag under the terms of Yalta agreement.
As Johnson notes, perhaps upwards of a few thousand of these ex-Nazi Muslim soldiers end up in Displaced Persons Camps near Munich, the largest city in the American sector of post-war Germany. Von Mende, despite his Nazi background, was interviewed by the CIA, given the code name Capriform and received a position at the University of Munich, as cover. The CIA was very interested in inserting agents into Soviet territory. Ultimately, however, the CIA rejected his suggested approach to information gathering and covert propaganda warfare. Nevertheless, von Mende ultimately thrived by running an independent consultancy in Dusseldorf until his death in 1963.
That consultancy was supported initially by British Intelligence and later, with the formation of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1949, by BND Intelligence, Refugee Programs and the Foreign Ministry to monitor Muslim émigrés. Those new émigrés included wartime Caucasian and Central Asian Muslim Waffen SS alumni. Among them were Garip Sultan, Ibrahim Gacoglu, and Nurredin Namangani, an Uzbek Imam of an SS division who survived a term in a Soviet gulag. Some became involved in CIA covert anti–Soviet activities during pilgrimages to Mecca.
Namagani figures prominently in the failed attempt by these ex-Nazi Muslim soldiers to take control of the Munich Mosque as sought by von Mende. His legacy lived on in the CIA-backed Radio Liberty in Munich with its national liberation desk organization based on his Ostministerium experience, replete with members from the ex-Muslim soldiers’ network. Several of these former Nazi Muslim soldiers were employed by CIA operatives at the American Committee of Liberation’s (Amcomlib) Munich–based Radio Liberty.

President Eisenhower with the Princeton Islam Seminar Delegation at the White House, July 1953.
Said Ramadan is the second on the right.
Enter Said Ramadan the son-in-law of Muslim Brotherhood Founder, Hassan al-Banna
Johnson notes that at one point AMCOMLIB CIA officers Eric Kuniholm and Robert Dreher, the latter based in Munich, provided funding for Dr. Said Ramadan. Ramadan with the connivance of Haj Amin Al Husseini spread the political Islamic doctrine of the MB via the World Muslim League. The League was co-founded by the Grand Mufti, al Husseini, and Ramadan.
The core of the MB doctrine was the restoration of the Caliphate which had ended with establishment of modern Turkey in 1924. The Caliph would enforce strict Islamic Law in the ummah – the community of believers. Ramadan married one of daughters of Egyptian MB founder Hassan al-Banna, who was assassinated in 1949 by Egyptian authorities under King Farouk.
Gamal al-Banna, brother of the MB founder, thought Ramadan could “have been the foreign Minister of the MB. He was an eloquent orator and spoke English. He had many contacts overseas.” Ramadan and the Grand Mufti held a meeting in Karachi during the World Muslim Congress in 1951.

Dr. Said Ramadan, Circa 1960
Ramadan was then elected as a secretary of the Congress. Ramadan was also with the Grand Mufti in the Jerusalem-based Islamic General Congress. Among his colleagues in the MB was Sayyid Qutb, the MB’s principal modern theorist and author of the tract Milestones. Qutb propounded the view that those who disagreed with these Islamic principals were apostates and therefore subject to a death.
Despite viewing the West as degenerate, Said Ramadan viewed Soviet Communism as the foremost enemy of Islam. In this he was following the line laid done by the Grand Mufti. As early as 1946, the US War Department observed that the Mufti had informed his followers that Communism violated Koranic doctrine. That made him an influential Muslim anti-Communist.
However, the Mufti was viewed as tainted goods by the CIA given his Nazi-past and sojourn in Berlin as Hitler’s house guest during WWII. Ramadan, on the other hand, had so such baggage. The stage was set for an encounter with President Eisenhower at a 1953 Princeton University Islamic Colloquium. Johnson noted:
Abbott Washburn deputy director of the US Information Agency . . . recalled the high priority that Eisenhower gave to religion in his personal life and in geopolitical strategy.
Washburn sent a note to Eisenhower’s psychological warfare whiz, C.D. Jackson. That [the Princeton Islamic Colloquium] might achieve a hoped for result that the Muslims will be impressed with the moral and spiritual strength of America. These individuals can exert a profound and far-reaching impact upon Muslim thinking. Their long-term influence may well outweigh that of the political leaders of their countries.
As articulated in a confidential memo by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, the hope was “this psychological approach might make some important contributions to both short and long term US political objectives in the Moslem area.” The objectives were to “guide and promote the Islamic Renaissance,” meaning the MB. (However, the MB had a political rather than a cultural objective.) That led the US government to reach out to US-Saudi oil conglomerate ARAMCO to underwrite the travel grants for this Princeton program. In July 1953, the US Embassy in Cairo invited Ramadan to the 10-day Princeton program.
Ramadan and other participants then traveled to Washington for a photo-op with President Eisenhower in the White House. The CIA subsequently did an analysis of Ramadan at the Princeton conference and concluded that “Ramadan seems to be a fascist, interested in . . . power. He did not display many ideas except for those of the [MB].”
The CIA Encourages Support of the MB in Eisenhower’s Second Administration
The encounters with Ramadan at Princeton in 1953, despite skepticism, nonetheless encouraged the Eisenhower Administration during his second term to provide support for the MB. This was viewed largely as a response to Soviet influence in Egypt under Nasser. In a letter to Presbyterian Church leader Edward Elson, Eisenhower wrote:
I assure you that I never fail in any communication with Arab leaders, oral or written, to stress the importance of the spiritual factor in our relationships. I have argued that belief in God should create between them and us the common purpose of opposing atheistic communism.”
The real motivating factor was th possibility of jihad against Communism. Eisenhower spoke about this in a memo summarizing discussions with the CIA covert ops chief, Frank Wisner who figures in Obama’s Arab Spring scenario in 2011, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The memo notes:
The President said . . . we should do everything possible to stress the ‘holy war’ aspect. Mr. Dulles commented that if Arabs have a ‘holy war’ they would want it to be against Israel. The President recalled, however, that [King Ibn] Saud . . . had called on all Arabs to oppose Communism.
The ad hoc Working Group on Islam, including officials from the US Information Agency, State Department and the CIA created an “Outline of Operations.” The major push was to back the “reformists,” meaning the MB, versus so-called “reactionary groups.”
The CIA’s Office of Policy Coordination was the paymaster for this plan. They relied on Dreher the CIA agent at AMCOMLIB in Munch to set up the flow of funds to Muslim émigré groups. The focus in the mid-1950’s was on the series on non-aligned Nation Conferences at Bandung in Indonesia. The CIA used Said Shamil, a wealthy Dagestan Muslim, to badger delegates with petitions against Soviet suppression of Islam. Another émigré accomplice was Rusi Nasar, an Uzbek who had previously gone on pilgrimages to Mecca for AMCOMLIB and who directly attacked the Soviet delegation at the Second Bandung conference.
But the emphasis was on supporting Ramadan, a major figure in the Muslim ummah.
In the late 1950’s, a West German intelligence report surfaced that accused the US of being involved in securing Ramadan’s Jordanian passport, while Swiss intelligence said he was a US agent.
Ramadan’s base had clearly shifted to Europe. In 1959 he left the Sudan, and made Geneva his permanent home.
Ramadan, with covert CIA help, reached the pinnacle of his influence with the assumption of leadership of the World Muslim League in the 1960’s. In 1963, he gave King Saud the official proposal to found the League and was granted a diplomatic passport as Ambassador-at-large for the League. Ramadan, however, rejected Saudi funds and ended up traveling the world on a Pakistani passport.
Ramadan was always contemptuous of US intelligence. As one report noted:
Ramadan held no hatred for the American people, only amazement at the incompetence of the American intelligence community and its seemingly endless reliance on corruption to get what it wanted.
Ramadan’s Role in Taking Over the Munich Islamic Center for the MB
Ramadan, while continuing to be a person of interest to the US, had problems given his virulently anti-Israel views. He told US diplomats in Rabat, Morocco in 1956 that “Jews must be expelled from Palestine,” a precursor of the MB affiliate Hamas Charter of 1988.
With an attempted 1954 assassination plot by the MB on the life of Egyptian strongman Gamal Abdel Nasser, Ramadan fled Egypt for Saudi Arabia. He and other MB conspirators were charged with treason and stripped of their Egyptian citizenship. Jordan gave him a diplomatic passport and even “sent him to West Germany as Ambassador-at-large.” Ramadan eventually received asylum status in Switzerland. Given his new home in Geneva, Ramadan completed his doctorate in Islamic Law (Shariah) at a German University while traveling around the Muslim ummah on behalf of the World Muslim Congress.
On Christmas Day in 1958 he met with the ex-Nazi Muslim soldiers and several Muslim students seeking to establish an Islamic Center in Munich. According to Muhammad Abdel Karim Grimm, a German convert and Muslim activist, “the students were all well-educated, they had all learned the lessons of Hasan al-Banna.”
While first welcomed as a respected figure in the Muslim ummah, Ramadan fomented infighting over who would lead the Islamic Center in Munich. That resulted in the seizure of control from von Mende’s ex-Nazi Muslim soldiers by Ramadan and a group of Muslim students.
The students in turn were replaced by a succession of MB figures including Ghaleb Himmat, a Syrian businessman, who headed the Islamic Center for over 30 years from his base in Lugano, Switzerland. He was assisted by Egyptian businessman Youssef Nada who secured funds mainly from Libya (both pre and post Gaddafi takeover) to complete the construction of the Munich Islamic Center which opened in 1973. Mahdi Akef, current supreme leader of the Egyptian MB. headed the Munich Islamic center for four years from 1984 to 1987.
Ramadan’s Assassination Plots in Egypt and Washington
Ramadan wasn’t finished by any means.
In 1965, Ramadan was once again involved with MB underground teams in Egypt from his base in Geneva plotting to assassinate Gamal Abdel Nasser. This time the plot was foiled by a tip from King Hussein’s Jordanian intelligence service. An MB operative in President Nasser’s personal Honor Guard was poised to assassinate him. News of the plot resulted in Egyptian security detaining more than more than 6,000 conspirators. Perhaps in revenge for this attempt by the MB, Nasser had MB theoretician Sayyid Qtub executed in 1966.
Although Ramadan was a neo-Salafist Sunni, that did not, dissuade him from reaching out to Shia Mahdists like Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, as they shared many of the same objectives, including the destruction of Israel. Because of his trips to Washington, DC. Ramadan made the acquaintance of disaffected African American ex-military who had converted to Islam. These Muslim converts engaged in a series of actions against Iranian ex-pat supporters of the late Shah who were planning a counter-coup against the new Islamic regime in Tehran.
Ramadan thought this information might of use to Khomenei who was preparing a revolution in Iran from his base in Paris. The Ayatollah convened his Islamic Council in Paris, whereupon upwards of $5.0 million was provided to recruit African-American converts to his cause. An Iranian naturalized American citizen, Bahram Nahidian, who was a rug merchant and supporter of the Ayatollah in Washington, DC became Ramadan’s recruiter of these converts for operations against supporters of the late Shah. An Afro American Islamic convert, David Belfield, a.k.a. Dawud Salahuddin was recruited for the assassination of Ali Akbar Tabatabai’e, a counter-coup plotter and coup organizer.
Tabatabai’e was shot at point blank range by Salahuddin disguised as a US postal worker at Tabatabai’e’s residence in Bethesda, Maryland on July 22, 1980. Salahuddin fled the US to Geneva, where Ramadan gave him temporary refuge. Despite initial objections by the Iranian Embassy in Switzerland, Salahuddin was cleared and fled to Tehran where he obtained sanctuary under Ayatollah Khomenei.

Professor Tariq Ramadan Son of Said Ramadan and Grandson of MB Founder Hasan al-Banna
One of Ramadan’s two sons is controversial professor Tariq Ramadan of Oxford University in the UK. The younger Ramadan was denied entry to the US by the Bush State Department because of his charitable contributions to Hamas, an MB affiliate. Federal court decisions in 2008 led to Tariq Ramadan being granted a visa.
Said Ramadan died in Switzerland in 1995.
The Munich Islamic Center Spawns MB Affiliates in the US
The Munich Islamic Center has spawned a number of MB affiliates in America. After a Lugano, Switzerland conference in 1977 at which exiled MB preacher and spiritual figure Egyptian Yusuf Qaradawi attended, they created the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) to nurture and spread the neo-Salafist doctrine of Qutb and others. After a 1978 meeting in Saudi Arabia, the MB leaders decided strategically to locate the IIIT in the US. Initially the Institute was opened in Philadelphia, lead by Dr. Ismail Faruqi, who was on the faculty at Temple University. Later the IIIT would move to its present site in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Two attendees at the Lugano meeting were Dr. Jamal Barzinji and Ahmed Tontonji. Barzinji signed the incorporation papers for the opening of the IIIT in the US in 1980. Another MB functionary was Dr. Hisham Altallib. He became a voting member of the Munich Islamic Center in 1978. The trio of Tontonji, Barzinji and Altallib, after study in Britain, left for the US in the 1960’s. In 1962, Tontonji formed the oldest MB front in the US, the Muslim Student Association. The first MSA National chapter was formed in 1963 at the campus of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, which launched ISNA.
The National MSA has grown to more than several hundred chapters on high school, college and university campuses throughout the US and Canada. Perhaps the most notorious of which is the Muslim Student Union at U.C. Irvine in Orange County, California whose members were indicted for disrupting the speech of Israeli Ambassador to the US, Hon. Michael Oren in February, 2010.
The Lugano trio of three Iraqis, Totonji, Barzinji and Altallib, settled in Indianapolis. They were joined by benefactor Nada who lived there between 1978 and 1982. They used Saudi money to build a national headquarters on a 42 acre site in the community of Plainfield, Indiana. There they created several MB fronts: the North American Islamic Trust, used to provide Shariah compliant mortgages for mosque construction and expansion, the Muslim Student Association and the largest Muslim advocacy group in the US, the Islamic Society of North America.
As noted in the Militant Islam Monitor the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) in Northern Virginia chairman Ahmed Tontonji is:
… an Iraqi-born citizen of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a key target of Operation Green Quest. Totonji was also named as a defendant in a $1 trillion lawsuit filed by more than 600 relatives of people who died in the 9/11 attacks.
He acted as a co-founder and officer of the Saudi-founded/Saudi-funded (and now defunct) SAAR Trust. Additionally, he served as Vice President of the Safa Group and the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT). Officials have linked the non-profit IIIT to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda...”
In Conclusion
What we have learned in this cautionary tale of early US involvement with the MB during the Cold War era, is how myopic this country’s leaders have been about the international political agenda of the Ikhwan. Hopes to use the MB in a “holy war” against Soviet Communism backfired. Consider too the feckless nature of the CIA during the secret war in Afghanistan with Saudi partners against Soviet forces, the so-called Charlie Wilson’s War of the 1980’s.
That effort was spawned by National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski under President Carter in 1979 and was another anti-Soviet attempt to use a “holy war,” along with billions from the US, the Saudis and the corrupt Pakistani Inter-Service Intelligence service, to weaken the USSR. After the Soviet 40th Army retreated from Afghanistan in 1989, al Qaeda, followers of the MB Islamic doctrine of Qutb, arose to afflict us with global Islamic terror. The Bush Administration while feigning refusal to meet with the MB in Egypt, nevertheless cultivated the successor to the World Muslim League founded by Said Ramadan, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a virtual Caliphate composed of 57 Muslim nations.
In 2007, President Bush appointed the first special envoy to the OIC, giving it embassy status in Washington, DC. In the wake of the Arab spring in Egypt, the Obama Administration has reached out to the Egyptian MB that might become the ruling party if, as expected, their new Freedom and Justice Party receives a plurality in the coming elections this fall.


What is that careworn French expression? Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, “the more things change the more they stay the same.” Said Ramadan must indeed be smiling at these developments. However remote, the enticement of a worldwide Caliphate, long sought by the Muslim Brotherhood, now looms large, threatening the West and the Muslim world, as fanatics regain a concrete goal upon which to fasten their grandiose schemes.
