The Neo-Nazi Show Trial And The Timing Of The Murders

 GermanyWatch

The German show trial for the National Socialist Underground begins this week, after several false starts due to the Bavarian Court not wanting interested press at the hearings (see here).

There is a strange coincidence to the dates and places;

Murders number 2, 3, 4, and 5;

Murder of Abdurrahim Özüdoğru

On 13 June 2001, Abdurrahim Özüdoğru was killed by two shots in the head with the same silenced CZ 83 already used in the murder of Enver Şimşek. Özüdoğru, who worked as a machinist for a big company in Nuremberg (which company?) had been helping out in a tailor's shop; the murder was discovered by a passer-by who looked through the shop window and saw the body sitting in the back of the shop, covered in blood. 

Murder of Süleyman Taşköprü

On 27 June 2001 between 10:45 and 11:15 a.m, Süleyman Taşköprü, aged 31, died in his greengrocer's shop in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld after being shot in the head three times. This was two weeks after the second murder, and the same guns as in the first case were used, a CZ 83 and a 6.35 mm gun.

Murder of Habil Kılıç

On 29 August 2001 Habil Kılıç became the fourth victim. Kılıç, aged 38, who was married and had a daughter, was shot at point-blank range in his greengrocer's shop in Munich-Ramersdorf. This was the first of two murders in Munich.

The Theory;

Are these linked to the 9/11 Hamburg cell? They all worked shop fronts, which are perfect for low level intelligence messengers, they may have been supplying something along the lines of fake ID/paperwork or weapons, or perhaps they were just messengers/couriers for German intelligence/ the Hamburg Cell Jihadis. The Hamburg Cell also frequented an extremist mosque in Munich.

Once the 9/11 operation was underway, German intelligence cleaned house. The "NSU" vanished for 2 years just a little over a week before 9/11, with no more linked murders in that 2 year period. Repeat - the last murder was just over a week before 9/11, whilst one murder was Hamburg and one was Munich. If the NSU murders were normal far right extremists sending a message to asylum seekers, where's the message? There was none.

So, then two and a half years later in Rostock-Toitenwinkel, 25 February 2004, between 10:10 and 10:20, Mehmet Turgut was shot three times in the head and neck with a silenced CZ 83 and died instantaneously. Turgut, who had been living illegally in Hamburg, was in Rostock on a visit and had been asked by an acquaintance to open up a doner kebab shop that day. He was clearly targeted and enticed to be there that day and time. That is NOT a random far right killing.

Because of Turgut's link to Hamburg, Rostock police made the connection to the third victim, Süleyman Taşköprü, thus establishing the term doner murders. 

On 6 April 2006, just two days after the murder of Mehmet Kubaşık, Halit Yozgat became the last victim of the murder series. Yozgat, who ran an internet café in Kassel, Hesse, was also shot in the head with a silenced gun. On the occasion of this murder an agent of the Hessian Office for the BfV Protection of the Constitution was present. The agent claimed first to have left the premises shortly before the murder, but later changed his statement when presented with evidence of witnesses who had seen him present when the murder happened. His involvement with the case gave rise to suspicions that a German agency might be linked to the murders.

When this BfV officer was investigated, various Nazi paraphernalia was present in his apartment, including some documents from the Third Reich, though it is not publicly known what these docs referred to. Is he really a Nazi, or is that being used to make out he is an extremist infiltrator of German intelligence - that he was linked to the murder through his Nazi affiliates, rather than being present at the murder BECAUSE he was working for German intelligence??

Either way, it looks an awful lot like these murders are German intelligence cleaning house, and the places and dates may suggest it is because the murder victims were involved in the organisation/recruitment/planning of 9/11 with the Hamburg Cell - knowingly or unknowingly (thinking they were doing their duty for German intelligence?).

On 25 April 2007 Police officer Michèle Kiesewetter and her duty-partner were attacked during their lunch break. Kiesewetter was killed and her partner was critically wounded but survived with no memory of the attack (of course). While in the other cases the motive is assumed to be xenophobia and/or racism, it is unclear why Kiesewetter and her partner were attacked; theories include a variety of motives, such as a personal link between Kiesewetter and the alleged perpetrators who all came from Thuringia, or the acquisition of firearms. The duty-pistols of Kiesewetter and her partner were found on 4 November 2011 at the caravan where Böhnhardt and Mundlos were suicided, giving rise to the belief that this attack was linked to the NSU.

Of course, its more likely that as the motive in the Police murder was not xenophobia, the previous murders were not either. In which case, did these cops stumble on something they shouldn't have in a seemingly unrelated investigation?

They had to be silenced. 

The whole way through, this has been covered up, until Beate is the last woman standing, with everyone else dead or suffering amnesia. This is classic house cleaning, and German intelligence have taken such a risk with it, that it can only be covering something massive - like the Hamburg Cell link back to German intelligence.

Could these people have supplied evidence pointing at Germany being the hand behind 9/11?

German Intelligence, The National Socialist Union and 9/11

By Dave Emory - May 9, 2013 @ 6:57 pm in News & Supplemental
[1]
Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash drive that can be obtained here. [2] (The flash drive includes the anti-fascist books avail­able on this site.)
COMMENT: We’ve cov­ered [3] the neo-Nazi [4] group The National Social­ist Union [5] and its links [6] to Ger­man intel­li­gence [6] for months.
One of the most sig­nif­i­cant aspects of the case is the fact that pow­er­ful ele­ments within the Ger­man gov­ern­ment [7] are going to extra­or­di­nary lengths to eclipse the insti­tu­tional con­nec­tions of the group.
Turk­ish media [8] were excluded from being seated at the trial of the group [9], many of whose vic­tims were Turks. In addi­tion, lead­ing Ger­man media [10] were left out of a “raf­fle” to award seat­ing at the trial. 
For more than a decade, we’ve exam­ined the 9/11 attacks, the Nazi and fas­cist [11] con­nec­tions to that attack, in particular.
In our vis­its with Daniel Hop­sicker [12], we have noted that Mohamed Atta was frat­er­niz­ing with Ger­mans [13] and Aus­tri­ans in South Florida [14], hav­ing been brought into the United States [15] (from Ger­many) by the Carl Duis­berg Soci­ety [16].

Now, Ger­many Watch has pub­lished an intrigu­ing hypoth­e­sis con­cern­ing the mur­ders com­mit­ted by the group and the 9/11 attacks.

[17]
Andreas Strass­meier and com­pos­ite sketch of “John Doe #2″ in the Okla­homa City bombing.
Against the back­ground [18] of Ger­man intel­li­gence [19] con­nec­tions to the 9/11 attacks, the story below notes that mur­ders 2, 3 and 4 occurred in the imme­di­ate run-up to 9/11, the fourth less than two weeks before. 

The National Social­ist Union then dis­ap­peared from pub­lic view for two years.

The pres­ence of a Ger­man intel­li­gence offi­cer at the scene of one of the mur­ders (who pos­sessed Third Reich doc­u­ments as well as other Nazi para­pher­na­lia) also is worth not­ing, as is the use­ful “amne­sia” (mind con­trol?) of one of the Ger­man police offi­cers shot by the group. 

Of course there are other pos­si­bil­i­ties for the duplic­ity on the part of the author­i­ties, how­ever the work­ing hypoth­e­sis pre­sented by the Ger­many Watch folks is more than a lit­tle intriguing.

[20]
Pan Am Flight 103 bomb­ing: The “oper­a­tional tem­plate” for the 9/11 attacks?
In this con­text, a num­ber 0f things come to mind: 
  • The sup­pos­edly “mod­ern,” “demo­c­ra­tic” gov­ern­ment of Mr. Erdo­gan in Turkey [21] is nei­ther [22], hav­ing evolved from the Al-Taqwa milieu, inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, the Under­ground Reich and 9/11.
  • The Turk­ish nation­al­ity of many of the vic­tims (includ­ing those killed in the run-up to 9/11) would, there­fore, not exclude the pos­si­bil­ity of links with Atta and company.
  • The Atta milieu was inextricably-linked with “pro­tected” drug-trafficking networks. 
  • In FTR #‘s 498 & 499 [23], we exam­ined the links of SICO to 9/11, which are fundamental.
  • SICO, in turn, over­laps the Shakarchie A.G. case, a pro­tected drug-trafficking oper­a­tion involv­ing the use of Turk­ish oper­a­tives and ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence. (Shakarchie A.G. over­laps the milieu impli­cated in the shoot­ing of the Pope in May of 1981 [24].)
  • In this con­text, we note that as dis­cussed in FTR #‘s 498 & 499 [23], SICO’s avi­a­tion sub­sidiary trained its pilots at the same air­port served by Rudi Dekkers’ crew–the same drug-smuggling nexus through which Mohamed Atta and his Ger­man asso­ciates infil­trated the U.S. 
  • We also note the mur­der of a Ger­man intel­li­gence offi­cer (and expert on Islamic rad­i­cals and ter­ror­ists ) in Libya in 1994. Sil­van Becker [25]had been trans­ferred to research­ing Tamil extrem­ists and had been in Libya, where he and his wife Vera were mur­dered. The war­rant for the arrest of their alleged killer was the first legal war­rant issued for an al-Qaeda oper­a­tive. His alleged killer had the same name as a sus­pect in the first World Trade Cen­ter attack. (The mur­der of Sil­van Becker [26] is dis­cussed in FTR#336 [25] as well as FTR #337 [27].) Was Becker inves­ti­gat­ing and/or had he come across some of the Ger­man intel­li­gence links to the Locker­bie bomb­ing? Had he noted Ger­man intel­li­gence spon­sor­ship of Islamist ter­ror­ists in Ger­many? (We would note in pass­ing, that activ­i­ties such as those engaged in by the 9/11 con­spir­a­tors were LEGAL under Ger­man law at the time, as noted in FTR #336 [25].)
  • Becker’s mur­der also brings to mind a “back story” about the 9/11 attacks and the bomb­ing of Pan Am 102 over Lockerbie. In AFA #35 [28], we ana­lyzed the Pan Am 103 bomb­ing, its links to the Iran-Contra affair and com­plic­ity on the part of ele­ments of the Rea­gan and George H.W. Bush admin­is­tra­tions, as well as their asso­ci­ated intel­li­gence offi­cers. The hypoth­e­sis pre­sented there is a com­plex one and the pro­gram was recorded incre­men­tally before the inter­net age. Lis­ten­ers should be aware that it is a long, detailed analysis.
  • One of the ele­ments of note for our pur­poses is the report that one or more sus­pects in the Pan Am 103 bomb­ing were oper­at­ing on behalf of the Ver­fas­sung­shutz, Germany’s domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice. (Again, this is dis­cussed in AFA #35 [28].)
  • As dis­cussed in FTR #336 [25], 9/11 hijacker Ziad Jar­rah had an uncle who report­edly worked for the Libyan secret ser­vice and was inves­ti­gated for “Stasi” links. (Nat­u­rally, the Wall Street Jour­nal had to bring in the “Com­mie” angle. The Cold War was years over at this point in time.) In this con­text, one should not lose sight of the fact that the Libyan secret ser­vice was put together by the supposedly-dead Hein­rich Mueller, using the same SS and Gestapo vet­er­ans whom the CIA/Gehlen nexus had employed to assem­ble the Egypt­ian intel­li­gence ser­vice under Nasser.) 
  • Return­ing to the sub­ject of Pan Am 103, we noted in our analy­sis that the plan­ners of the bomb­ing uti­lized one of U.S. intelligence’s con­trolled drug net­works, know­ing that such a net­work might be an excel­lent way of bring­ing the bomb safely aboard the aircraft.
  • We have come to believe that the Pan Am 103 bomb­ing may very well have been the “oper­a­tional tem­plate” for the 9/11 attacks. The 9/11 attack­ers were able to uti­lize one of this country’s intelligence-sponsored drug impor­ta­tion net­works to mask their activ­i­ties. Did the plan­ers of the attack ref­er­ence the Pan Am 103 bomb­ing in this context? 
  • In FTR #310 [29], we noted that act­ing FBI direc­tor Robert Mueller had proved “less than vig­or­ous” in his pur­suit of the BCCI scan­dal. Not­ing that proper inves­ti­ga­tion of the BCCI case would have led to the Bush/Bin Laden fam­ily con­nec­tions, we opined that cov­er­ing up that con­nec­tion was of para­mount impor­tance, man­dat­ing the appoint­ment of some­one with a com­pro­mised resume to head the FBI. (We should note that this pro­gram was sev­eral months BEFORE the 9/11 attacks.)
  • In that same con­text, Robert Mueller also proved “less than vig­or­ous” in his pur­suit of the Pan Am 103 inves­ti­ga­tion. Did his per­for­mance in that case also “assist” in his appointment?
  • We note  in clos­ing that there is a Ger­man link to most of this country’s recent ter­ror­ist inci­dents: the first World Trade Cen­ter attack (the financ­ing came from Ger­man accounts); the Okla­homa City bomb­ing (McVeigh/Nichols’ men­tor appears to have been Andreas Strass­meir, son of Hel­mut Kohl’s chief of staff and grand­son of one of the founders of the NSDAP under Hitler. Check out the resem­blance between “John Doe #2″ and Strass­meir); the 9/11 attacks.
  • In turn, these inci­dents have oper­a­tional links [30] with other ter­ror­ist inci­dents, such as the AMIA bombings.
“The Neo-Nazi Show Trial And The Tim­ing Of The Mur­ders”; Ger­many Watch; 5/5/2013. [31]

ENTIRE TEXT: The Ger­man show trial for the National Social­ist Under­ground begins this week, after sev­eral false starts due to the Bavar­ian Court not want­ing inter­ested press at the hear­ings (see here).

There is a strange coin­ci­dence to the dates and places;

Mur­ders num­ber 2, 3, 4, and 5;

Mur­der of Abdur­rahim Özüdoğru
 
On 13 June 2001, Abdur­rahim Özüdoğru was killed by two shots in the head with the same silenced CZ 83 already used in the mur­der of Enver Şimşek. Özüdoğru, who worked as a machin­ist for a big com­pany in Nurem­berg (which com­pany?) had been help­ing out in a tailor’s shop; the mur­der was dis­cov­ered by a passer-by who looked through the shop win­dow and saw the body sit­ting in the back of the shop, cov­ered in blood.


Mur­der of Süley­man Taşköprü
 
On 27 June 2001 between 10:45 and 11:15 a.m, Süley­man Taşköprü, aged 31, died in his greengrocer’s shop in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld after being shot in the head three times. This was two weeks after the sec­ond mur­der, and the same guns as in the first case were used, a CZ 83 and a 6.35 mm gun.


Mur­der of Habil Kılıç
 
On 29 August 2001 Habil Kılıç became the fourth vic­tim. Kılıç, aged 38, who was mar­ried and had a daugh­ter, was shot at point-blank range in his greengrocer’s shop in Munich-Ramersdorf. This was the first of two mur­ders in Munich.


The The­ory

Are these linked to the 9/11 Ham­burg cell? They all worked shop fronts, which are per­fect for low level intel­li­gence mes­sen­gers, they may have been sup­ply­ing some­thing along the lines of fake ID/paperwork or weapons, or per­haps they were just messengers/couriers for Ger­man intelligence/ the Ham­burg Cell Jihadis. The Ham­burg Cell also fre­quented an extrem­ist mosque in Munich.
Once the 9/11 oper­a­tion was under­way, Ger­man intel­li­gence cleaned house. The “NSU” van­ished for 2 years just a lit­tle over a week before 9/11, with no more linked mur­ders in that 2 year period. Repeat — the last mur­der was just over a week before 9/11, whilst one mur­der was Ham­burg and one was Munich. If the NSU mur­ders were nor­mal far right extrem­ists send­ing a mes­sage to asy­lum seek­ers, where’s the mes­sage? There was none.

So, then two and a half years later in Rostock-Toitenwinkel, 25 Feb­ru­ary 2004, between 10:10 and 10:20, Mehmet Turgut was shot three times in the head and neck with a silenced CZ 83 and died instan­ta­neously. Turgut, who had been liv­ing ille­gally in Ham­burg, was in Ros­tock on a visit and had been asked by an acquain­tance to open up a doner kebab shop that day. He was clearly tar­geted and enticed to be there that day and time. That is NOT a ran­dom far right killing.

Because of Turgut’s link to Ham­burg, Ros­tock police made the con­nec­tion to the third vic­tim, Süley­man Taşköprü, thus estab­lish­ing the term doner murders. 
On 6 April 2006, just two days after the mur­der of Mehmet Kubaşık, Halit Yoz­gat became the last vic­tim of the mur­der series. Yoz­gat, who ran an inter­net café in Kas­sel, Hesse, was also shot in the head with a silenced gun. On the occa­sion of this mur­der an agent of the Hes­s­ian Office for the BfV Pro­tec­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion was present. The agent claimed first to have left the premises shortly before the mur­der, but later changed his state­ment when pre­sented with evi­dence of wit­nesses who had seen him present when the mur­der hap­pened. His involve­ment with the case gave rise to sus­pi­cions that a Ger­man agency might be linked to the murders.

When this BfV offi­cer was inves­ti­gated, var­i­ous Nazi para­pher­na­lia was present in his apart­ment, includ­ing some doc­u­ments from the Third Reich, though it is not pub­licly known what these docs referred to. Is he really a Nazi, or is that being used to make out he is an extrem­ist infil­tra­tor of Ger­man intel­li­gence — that he was linked to the mur­der through his Nazi affil­i­ates, rather than being present at the mur­der BECAUSE he was work­ing for Ger­man intelligence??

Either way, it looks an awful lot like these mur­ders are Ger­man intel­li­gence clean­ing house, and the places and dates may sug­gest it is because the mur­der vic­tims were involved in the organisation/recruitment/planning of 9/11 with the Ham­burg Cell — know­ingly or unknow­ingly (think­ing they were doing their duty for Ger­man intelligence?).

On 25 April 2007 Police offi­cer Michèle Kiesewet­ter and her duty-partner were attacked dur­ing their lunch break. Kiesewet­ter was killed and her part­ner was crit­i­cally wounded but sur­vived with no mem­ory of the attack (of course). While in the other cases the motive is assumed to be xeno­pho­bia and/or racism, it is unclear why Kiesewet­ter and her part­ner were attacked; the­o­ries include a vari­ety of motives, such as a per­sonal link between Kiesewet­ter and the alleged per­pe­tra­tors who all came from Thuringia, or the acqui­si­tion of firearms. The duty-pistols of Kiesewet­ter and her part­ner were found on 4 Novem­ber 2011 at the car­a­van where Böhn­hardt and Mund­los were sui­cided, giv­ing rise to the belief that this attack was linked to the NSU.

Of course, its more likely that as the motive in the Police mur­der was not xeno­pho­bia, the pre­vi­ous mur­ders were not either. In which case, did these cops stum­ble on some­thing they shouldn’t have in a seem­ingly unre­lated investigation?

They had to be silenced.

The whole way through, this has been cov­ered up, until Beate is the last woman stand­ing, with every­one else dead or suf­fer­ing amne­sia. This is clas­sic house clean­ing, and Ger­man intel­li­gence have taken such a risk with it, that it can only be cov­er­ing some­thing mas­sive — like the Ham­burg Cell link back to Ger­man intelligence.

Could these peo­ple have sup­plied evi­dence point­ing at Ger­many being the hand behind 9/11?

Discussion

One comment for “German Intelligence, The National Socialist Union and 9/11”

And here is a pro­file of “The last Woman Standing”–
I won­der what her defense team found in “dis­cov­ery”. Con­sid­er­ing the sup­pres­sion of Turks and jour­nal­ists in the lead-up to the trial, it’s unlikely that intel­li­gence con­nec­tions will come out:

‘Nazi Bride’ case high­lights ris­ing influ­ence of women in Germany’s far-right move­ment
By Andy Eckardt, Pro­ducer, NBC News

NBCNews.com
Ger­man Police via Reuters Beate Zschaepe, 38, is accused of com­plic­ity in the mur­der of eight eth­nic Turks, a Greek and a police­woman, two bomb­ings and 15 bank rob­beries. She has been described as “Germany’s most dan­ger­ous neo-Nazi.“MAINZ, Ger­many — Dubbed the “Nazi Bride,” Beate Zschaepe has become the face of right-wing mil­i­tancy in Germany.
The 38-year-old woman is allegedly the sole sur­viv­ing mem­ber of the National Social­ist Under­ground, a neo-Nazi ter­ror cell accused of a seven-year racist killing spree.
On Mon­day, Zschaepe will go on trial accused of com­plic­ity in the mur­der of eight eth­nic Turks, a Greek and a police­woman, two bomb­ings and 15 bank robberies.
But she is alleged to be far more than just the taga­long lover of the far-right gang’s leader.
Ger­man fed­eral pros­e­cu­tor Wolf­gang Range alleges that Zschaepe gave the ter­ror cell “the appear­ance of legal­ity and nor­malcy towards the outside.”
Ger­man Police via Reuters National Social­ist Under­ground mem­ber Uwe Boehn­hardt was found dead after a bun­gled armed rob­bery in Novem­ber 2011.Speaking to Der Spiegel mag­a­zine, Range added: “I am con­vinced that she wasn’t just an acces­sory or merely a com­pan­ion, but was in fact act­ing on the same level as the others.”
Zschaepe and two alleged accom­plices, who took their own lives, have been described by Range as a “uni­fied killing com­mando” respon­si­ble for a series of execution-style murders.
Zschaepe’s case will spot­light the increas­ingly promi­nent role that women are play­ing in the neo-Nazi scene. In par­tic­u­lar, they have been gain­ing influ­ence in Ger­man far-right politics.
Sta­tis­tics sug­gest nearly 20 per­cent of exec­u­tives in Germany’s extrem­ist NPD party are women, which is a higher per­cent­age than in many smaller main­stream parties.
“Women are increas­ingly tak­ing cen­ter stage in the far-right scene,” said Michaela Koet­tig, a pro­fes­sor for social work at the Uni­ver­sity of Applied Sci­ences in Frank­furt. “They are fill­ing impor­tant posi­tions after being fully social­ized by the scene.”
Up to 40 far-right women’s orga­ni­za­tions alone have been estab­lished since 2000, accord­ing to Koettig.
“Like their male com­rades, women from the extreme right are also vio­lent and fully polit­i­cally moti­vated in their actions,” said Koet­tig, who has been con­duct­ing research on far-right extrem­ism for the past 20 years.
Over­all, the Ger­man government’s domes­tic intel­li­gence agency esti­mates that there are more than 22,000 active mem­bers in the country’s right-wing scene, includ­ing 9,800 vio­lent extrem­ists. Sta­tis­tics on the exact num­ber of female sup­port­ers do not exist.
Zschaepe, who has been branded “Germany’s most dan­ger­ous neo-Nazi,” has so far kept silent. Pros­e­cu­tors hope that she will tes­tify dur­ing her trial, which could run for more than a year in Munich.
If found guilty, Zschaepe faces life in prison.
Zschaepe’s alleged accom­plices, Uwe Mund­los and Uwe Boen­hardt, were found dead fol­low­ing a bun­gled armed rob­bery in Novem­ber 2011. Zschaepe turned her­self in to police three days later.
The Ger­man intel­li­gence com­mu­nity came under fire for fail­ing to detect the group and was accused of being blind on the “right eye,” sug­gest­ing that the agen­cies had ded­i­cated too much of their atten­tion to left-wing extrem­ism and Islamists instead.
Ger­man Police via Reuters Uwe Mund­los was the third mem­ber of the National Social­ist Under­ground, accord­ing to Ger­man authorities.Investigators had focused on the vic­tims’ poten­tial links to the local crime scene and to for­eign crim­i­nal orga­ni­za­tions, while neglect­ing a pos­si­ble far-right motive in the killings, which occurred between 2000 and 2007.
Chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel has pub­licly apol­o­gized to the fam­i­lies of the mur­der victims.
Ger­man offi­cials now warn that right-wing extrem­ists are try­ing to con­ceal their true iden­ti­ties in order to gain a foothold in Ger­man society.
In its annual report, the Bavar­ian Office for the Pro­tec­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion, an intel­li­gence agency in this south­ern Ger­man state, high­lighted that neo-Nazi groups are dis­guis­ing their orga­ni­za­tions to recruit new mem­bers and spread right-wing ideology.
“We do not see a wide­spread infil­tra­tion into civil soci­ety yet, but right-wing groups and the far-right NPD party are invest­ing a lot of time and money to mask their ide­ol­ogy, to set up a facade,” said Markus Schae­fert, spokesman for the Bavar­ian intel­li­gence service.
In the city of Fuerth, neo-Nazis this year launched a so-called “cit­i­zens’ ini­tia­tive” called “Soziales Fuerth” — or “social Fuerth” — which is aimed at cre­at­ing the image of an orga­ni­za­tion that cares for the needs and con­cerns of local residents.
The web­site promi­nently dis­plays the face of a young blond-haired child with blue eyes. Its logo fea­tures the slo­gan “out of love for the peo­ple and the homeland.”
Accord­ing to the lat­est intel­li­gence report, these new so-called “social ini­tia­tives” are fol­low­ing “the strat­egy to draw atten­tion to issues on the level of local pol­i­tics and to present them­selves as an elec­table alternative.”
Such groups are turn­ing to social media and sites such as Face­book to mask their ideologies.
But even more wor­ry­ing are the groups’ strate­gies to influ­ence young peo­ple as early as pos­si­ble, experts say.
“As there is mount­ing polit­i­cal and social pres­sure towards the neo-Nazi scene and the right-wing NPD party, the extrem­ists, who them­selves are often par­ents with young chil­dren, are try­ing to ingrain [them­selves] in soci­ety,” said Win­friede Scheiber, head of the intel­li­gence ser­vice in the east­ern Ger­man state of Brandenburg.
Experts say that neo-Nazis are using com­mu­nity facil­i­ties to reach ado­les­cents and young chil­dren, seek­ing to influ­ence their think­ing at an early stage in life, or to even recruit them.
“We are wor­ried about the devel­op­ment that moms and dads with right-wing ide­olo­gies are increas­ingly tak­ing up duties in kinder­gartens, nurs­ing homes or sports clubs,” Schreiber added.
Koet­tig, the social work pro­fes­sor, said such extrem­ists “stay incon­spic­u­ous at first and then, once they play a lead­ing role in sports clubs or have become mem­bers of their school’s par­ents’ asso­ci­a­tion, grad­u­ally intro­duce their ideology.”
