Al Qaeda were CIA? This has been the spin-off for conspiracy theorists for years, but this is only partly true. Due to the Soviet invasion of Afganistan, the CIA did fund and support a group who became known as 'The List' who were anti-communist, but they did not form them. They were formed much earlier by Amin Al Husseini, and they were anti-communist because they were essentially Nazis, formed from the Muslim Brotherhood by Al Husseini from the Muslim Hanzar Division of the Nazi SS. Bin Laden was Al Husseini's prodigy, along with two other well known names - Saddam Hussein….and Yasser Arafat.

Many Nazis lived under false names and worked in anti-Zionist propaganda centres post-war, such as the Institute for the Study of Zionism, which was founded in Cairo, in 1955. Its director, Alfred Zingler (alias Mahmoud Saleh), worked together with Dr. Johannes von Leers, who had been a specialist on the “Jewish Question” in Josef Goebbels’ propaganda department.
Zingler’s main assistants were Dr. Werner Witschale and Hans Appler (Saleh Shafar), who had also served on the staff of Goebbels’ ministry, as well as Louis Heiden. Heiden was the editor of one of the many Arabic versions of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and of a translation of Hitler’s Mein Kampf into Arabic.
In 1955, the Egyptian special services for anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist propaganda hired Appler.
Other Nazis settled in Egypt as well. Most of them worked with the Egyptian government as advisers on anti-Zionist propaganda or assisted with the organization of police forces or as military trainers in Palestinian terrorist camps. In 1957, according to Frankfurter Illustrierte [August 25, 1957], the number of Nazis in Egypt was two thousand. Erich Altern (Ali Bella), the chief of the Jewish section of the Gestapo in occupied Galicia [Eastern Central Europe, between Poland and Ukraine] during the war, escaped to Egypt in the early 1950s, where he served as a military instructor in the Palestinian camps. Standartenfuhrer (an SS regiment leader) Baumann (Ali Ben Khader), who had collaborated in the extermination of Jews in the Warsaw ghetto and went into hiding, became a military specialist in Egypt for the army of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Many of these Nazis came up against the British again in Suez, post-war.
It should be pointed out that National Socialism had a profound impact on the political philosophies of many radical Islamic political organisations, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood (founded in Egypt in 1928), Nasser`s Young Egypt movement, the Social Nationalist Party of Syria founded by Anton Sa`ada, and the Ba`ath Party of Iraq. One of the main leaders of the 1941 pro-Nazi coup in Iraq was Khairallah Tulfah, the uncle and guardian of Saddam Hussein. When Saddam failed in his attempt to assassinate the Iraqi leader Abdel Karim Qassim in 1959, he fled to Egypt where he was given protection by Grand Mufti-protégé Nasser and the former Nazi mercenaries.
Modern Islamic terrorists are a twisted mix of extreme Islam, and Nazi ideology and propaganda. Bearing in mind how many senior Nazis ended up in the middle east post-war, training Muslim Brotherhood terror groups in propaganda, guerilla warfare, intel & counter intel techniques, etc, a post war plan of German leadership is worth noting.
The plan was to cause chaos for the UK and US, by funding and training terrorist groups. In return for helping these terrorists rid the middle east of UK and US influence, Germany would get special favours and privileges. A large number of terrorists have frequented a Mosque in Munich over the years. Even some of the 9/11 bombers had been spending time in Germany. But I am sure that is a coincidence...
