Last night, after attending a critics’ screening of yet another new Hollywood offering of crap, I watched the great 1974 movie, “The Odessa File,” starring John Voight as a German reporter who infiltrates a group of Nazi SS officers in 1963 Munich. (I highly recommend this Four-Reagan-worthy film.)
It was fortuitous, given yesterday’s allegations that Nazi “Dr. Death,” Aribert Ferdinand Heim, became the pious Muslim, Tarek Hussein Farid, and allegedly died in Egypt (though Simon Wiesenthal Center Nazi Hunter Efraim Zuroff doubts he’s dead).
Nazi/Muslim Aribert Heim Echoes Themes of “Odessa File”
You see, there are many, many connections and collaborations between Islam and the Nazis. It’s not just Farid. It is many other things you probably don’t know about, some of which were elements of “The Odessa File,” a terrific thriller which is partially based on fact.
You probably know about the special Islamic unit of the Nazi SS. And you probably know about the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin Al-Husseini (Yasser Arafat’s relative), and his cordial meeting and plea to Hitler to finish the Final Solution of the Jews more quickly and expand it to the Middle East. And you know about American Muslims’ constant shouts of, “Go back to the oven,” on the streets of Ft. Lauderdale.
But did you know that the yellow star that Nazis forced Jews to wear originated in the Islamic world, where Muslims forced Jews to wear it? And did you know that Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner–the most senior aide to Holocaust architect Adolf Eichmann–lives the good life, sheltered from justice in Islamic terror-host state Syria?
One and The Same
And did you know that organized former SS officers, known as “ODESSA” (Organisation der ehemaligen SS-Angehorigen, or “Organization of Former SS Members”)–which helped these former SS officers elude justice–was working with Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, to help him achieve a new Final Solution of Jews in Israel?

Nazi scientists and former SS officers worked with Nasser to develop rocket missiles loaded with deadly diseases, designed to kill as many Jews as possible. It was the ODESSA Nazis’ job to create the guidance technology for the deadly missiles. Fortunately, they were not successful.
In part because of Hajj Amin Al-Husseini (who lived in Egypt), ODESSA–and its former Nazis–were welcome in Egypt and helped lead to the expulsion of Egypt’s Jews. Nasser was very proud of his association with the Nazis and the Muslim Brotherhood was very close with this secret society of Nazi SS men.
That’s probably why Aribert Heim a/k/a Tarik Farid ended up in Egypt. And since most major Sunni Muslim terrorist groups–Al-Qaeda, HAMAS, the P.L.O./Fatah, etc.–came out of the Muslim Brotherhood (the most influential organization in Sunni Islam), the tight Nazi/Islamic alliance continues.
Instead of going to the movies, this weekend, I recommend renting “The Odessa File.” This exciting, suspense-filled movie stands the test of time. And given the Heim story in the news, it’s relevant to date.
Another close Nazi-Islamic connection is that of Youssef Nada and the Third Reich. Mark Erikson of Asia Times does a good summary:
Another valued World War II Nazi collaborator was Youssef Nada, current board chairman of al-Taqwa (Nada Management), the Lugano, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Bahamas-based financial services outfit accused by the US Treasury Department of money laundering for and financing of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda. As a young man, he had joined the armed branch of the “secret apparatus” (al-jihaz al-sirri) of the Muslim Brotherhood and then was recruited by German military intelligence. When Grand Mufti el-Husseini had to flee Germany in 1945 as the Nazi defeat loomed, Nada reportedly was instrumental in arranging the escape via Switzerland back to Egypt and eventually Palestine, where el-Husseini resurfaced in 1946.
