Roots Of Modern Islamic Terrorism And Jewish Animus
In the 1920s, Hassan al-Banna formed a nationalist group called the Muslim Brotherhood. He was a devout follower of Adolph Hitler and wrote to him frequently. He was so persistent a follower of the Nazi Party in the 1930s that he and his Muslim Brotherhood became a secret arm of Nazi intelligence. The Arabs and German Nazis shared a common doctrine—hatred of Jews, democracy, and Western culture. It became the official policy of the Third Reich to develop the Muslim Brotherhood as a fifth column—an army inside Egypt. When World War II (WWII) broke out, the Muslim Brotherhood promised to rise up and help German General Rommel to make sure no English or American soldiers would enter Cairo or Alexandria, Egypt.
Palestinian Assistance To Hitler
The Muslim Brotherhood has a Palestinian section headed by Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseni. He went to Germany during WWII and helped recruit an international Schutzstaffel (SS) division of Arabs, based in Croatia, called the “Handjar” Muslim Division. They were to conquer the Arab peninsula for Hitler and then Egypt. Hitler called it, “Grand Dreams.”
Post-War Muslim Brotherhood
When the war ended, the British chose not to arrest Muslim Brotherhood members. British Secret Service wanted to use the fascist Muslim Brotherhood to strike down the infant state of Israel in 1948. The French assisted the British by releasing Grand Mufti and smuggling him to Egypt. The British protected them from 1945-1948. The British sold the other Arabs to the OSS Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
The U.S. wanted to use the Arab Nazis as a counterweight to Arab communists, who were funded by the Soviet Union. Around this time, Egypt President Gamal Nasser became nervous with the Muslim Brotherhood and ordered them to leave Egypt. The U.S. evacuated them and sent them to Saudi Arabia. Some of their leaders became teachers in madrassas—schools of Islamic learning. Muslim Brotherhood teaching fit well with Saudi Arabian Islamic Wahhabism ideology. Abdullah Azzam was one of the Muslim Brotherhood teachers, and one of his students was Osama bin Laden.
Al Qaeda Formed
The CIA created Operation Cyclone with secret funding supplied by Jimmy Carter. This was revealed on July 3, 1979, by Zbigniew Brezinski, an advisor to President Jimmy Carter. The CIA funded billions of dollars into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means “student”). The Wall Street Journal later declared, “The Taliban are players most capable of achieving peace. Moreover, they were crucial to secure the country as a prime trans-shipment route for the export of Central Asia’s vast oil, gas, and other natural resources.” The U.S. would rename the Muslim Brotherhood participants Mktab al-Khidamat al-Mujahideen—The Mak. Recruitment centers were established in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. The goal was for the U.S. to bring thousands of warriors to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan.
The Mak Attack
In 1993, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, part of The Mak, was linked to the bombing of the World Trade Center through an office in Brooklyn, New York, known as Al-Kifah Refugee Center.
Previously, Azzam and his student, bin Laden, rose in stature for their efforts to stop the Russian invasion of Afghanistan from 1979-1989. After the war, the Saudis did not want them back. The Mak split in half, and Azzam was assassinated. bin Laden became the recognized leader of Al Qaeda. As you can see, Muslim Brotherhood ideology and Al Qaeda are the same. The Hamas are an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The roots of modern Islamic terrorism will not be easy to destroy. It has religious fervor and zeal to take the world for Islam by any means and by any method. “The war on terror” is a facetious metonymy for radical Islam. Our best defense is prayer and the proclamation of the truth—Jesus Christ is Lord!
