A former war crimes investigator
explained how the terrorist network al Qaeda spawned from Nazi and
Islamic extremist movements following WWII.
John Loftus, who regularly appears on Fox News and ABC Radio
addressed the theme of,
“the roots of prejudice and hatred in the
world.” He began by explaining that he didn’t set out to become a
Nazi hunter. Early in his law career he took a volunteer attorney
job created by the Carter administration to hunt Nazis “because I
thought it would look good on my resume.”
To his surprise, rather than traveling to Germany to investigate he
was sent to the U.S. Government’s massive underground vaults
protecting classified information. Loftus claims he was given
complete access to the 20 acre-sized vaults, where he says he found
some disturbing information.
“I stumbled across some Nazi files I wasn’t supposed to see. No one
was supposed to see them until the year 2015. The British Secret
Service convinced American intelligence that the Nazis would be
indispensable as “freedom fighters” in preparing for the next major
war, which was anticipated against the Soviet Union.
THE ROOTS OF MODERN TERRORISM
During his time in the government’s underground vaults, Loftus said
he read a file on an organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood.
In the file was information about a man named Hasam al-Banna who
founded the organization in 1920.
“Mr. al-Banna was a devout admirer of a young Austrian writer named
Adolph Hitler. His letters to Hitler were so supportive that when
Hitler came to power in the 1930s he had Nazi intelligence make
contact with al-Banna to see if they could work together,” Loftus
Hitler had al-banna establish a spy network for Nazi Germany
Al-Banna promised Hitler that when Gen. Rommel’s Nazi tank division
arrived in Cairo and Alexandria, the Muslim Brotherhood would ensure
all of the British troops would be killed.
“These men were Nazi agents, they were spies, who adopted the Third
Reich’s policy towards the Jews,” Loftus said.
He spoke about another prominent member of the
Muslim Brotherhood, a
man known as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who was the
organization’s representative in Palestine. The Grand Mufti brought
with him a hatred of the Jews. He was a principal organizer of the
1920 “Bloody Passover” massacre of Jews who were praying at
Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall.
Following a failed attempt to create a Nazi uprising in Iraq, the
Grand Mufti fled to Europe to organize international Arab forces for
the Third Reich disguised as SS divisions.
“In truth these forces were Arab fanatics, Arab Nazis from all
across the Middle East,” Loftus said.
Though a certain war criminal, the Grand Mufti and his troops were
spirited away from prosecution to Egypt by the British Secret
“Kim Philby, the Soviet agent who infiltrated the British Secret
Service, was also recruiting Arab Nazis to poison the West’s efforts
in the Middle East forever,” Loftus said. “By using Arab Nazis,
democracy would be discredited, America would be discredited,
Britain would be discredited.”
Philby “helped” the United States acquire the Arab Nazis who were
expelled from Egypt in the 1950s after the Egyptians recognized them
as a threat
According to Loftus, the Arab Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood were
sent to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“To keep them employed they were given jobs as religious education
instructors,” Loftus said.
While Islam is a very peaceful religion, Saudi Arabia practiced an
extreme form of Islam called Wahhabi.
“Saudi Wahhabism is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity,” Loftus
said. “It’s an extreme and perverted form of religion that was
condemned as a heresy by Islam more than 60 times before the 1900s.”
“Here is this corrupt cult and all of a sudden the school teachers
are Nazis. Here a fusion is born between the two. Schools of hatred
were built all over Saudi Arabia,” Loftus said.
A well known pupil of these schools is
Osama bin Laden, Loftus said.
Bin Laden and other graduates of the schools were inducted into an
underground neo-Nazi Wahhabi army for Saudi Arabia.
Just as Russia was using Communist Arabs during the cold war, we
would use Arab Nazis as a counterweight to oppose them,” Loftus
“When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979 the Arab (neo)
Nazis were let out of the closet.
“Because of the combination of
Wahhabi fanaticism and Nazi ideology,
waves of people came pouring into Afghanistan to kill the
Communists,” Loftus said.
The Soviets were defeated and the United
States left. And, according to Loftus, Osama bin Laden took control
and his entire army of neo-Nazi theological cultists were left there
alive in the field.
Bin Laden drew up a list of those who he knew he could rely on and
called this list ‘the base.’ Loftus said the Arabic translation of
‘the base’ is ‘al qaeda.’
“Al Qaeda is the direct lineal descendant of the Arab Nazis of the
Muslim Brotherhood,” he said. “We let the Muslim Brotherhood, now
known as Al Qaeda, to roam free upon the world. Many, human beings
have paid for that mistake.
THE NUCLEAR PLOT, WMDS AND WHAT’S NEXT
In the summer of 2002,
Loftus said, the British intercepted a
message which revealed a nuclear weapons plot between N. Korea,
Libya and Iraq. Iraqi nuclear scientists were working in Libya using
enriched uranium supplied by North Korea, according to Loftus.
“Saddam new he couldn’t have a nuclear program in his country
because U.N. inspectors were all over,” Loftus said.
When the United States confronted Libya with the evidence,
Khadafi agreed to cooperate.
According to Loftus,
Khadafi said there is a Chinese component as
well. Not the official government of China, but the radical right
wing People’s Liberation Army. This group supplied Libya with
detailed instructions on how to build an atomic warhead.
Loftus said had the plot not been discovered, the project would have
produced an atomic warhead within 18 months.
According to Loftus,
Iran is the only country remaining that is
attempting to develop nuclear weapons. When the International
Association of Atomic Energy meets again, Loftus expects the member
nations, including the European nations who opposed war in Iraq, to
vote to impose sanctions against Iran.
“We think the blockade will go into effect very quickly. Iran is the
last country that is actively financing terrorist groups. It is one
of the few places where sanctions will work because 90 percent of
its economy comes from oil exports,” Loftus said.
In the al Qaeda plot to unleash a cloud of deadly chemicals in
Amman, Jordan’s capital, that was foiled, Loftus said, the chemicals
likely came from the hidden cache of WMDs created by Saddam.
Loftus, evidence gathered by U.S. special forces,
Israeli intelligence, statements by defectors, and satellite imagery
point to three locations in Syria and one location in Lebanon where
the WMDs are expected to be hidden.
“U.S. intelligence believes they know where the WMDS are. The new
Arab government of Iraq is going to ask for their property (the WMDs)
back,” Loftus said. “If Syria and Lebanon don’t give the WMDs back,
the new Iraqi government will ask us for help ...and we will help.”
In an interview with The U.P. Catholic,
Loftus said, “The evidence
looks pretty strong. Is it a 100 percent sure? No. But there is a
high degree of probability” that the weapons are there.
He said this information has not been reported in the American media
because the government will not confirm any of the information.
However, he said, the story has been circulating through the
“We are at the tipping point in the scale. I think we are going to
win. In the next 12 months we may see a number of other nations
surrender without firing a shot. If half of what my intelligence
sources tell me is accurate, we are in for a very good year,” he
In summary, Loftus said he has spent his career trying to help make
a difference. He says the United States is now paying the price for
negligence of leaders who looked the other way for inexpensive Arab
oil over the years.
Loftus’ appearance at St. Peter Cathedral was sponsored by the
Marquette County Interfaith Forum.
Loftus decided to forego a promising future with the U.S. Justice
Department. Instead he blew the whistle.
“I think I still hold the
record for the longest segment ever on 60 Minutes. In 1982 it caused
a minor national uproar,” Loftus said. “Mike Wallace got the Emmy,
and my family got death threats.”
