Freemasonry, Traditionalism and the Neo-Caliphate

The Oxford Movement

A speaker increasingly popular among Muslim audiences, known as Sheikh Imran Hosein, was featured recently at the University of Moscow, hosted by Russian fascist ideologue Alexandre Dugin. Disturbingly, Hosein’s speech seems to be in support of Dugin’s vision of Russian backing for the aspirations of Muslims, which is closely connected with a long-standing British and CIA plot to create a “neo-Caliphate” as a puppet Islamic state to exercise control over the Islamic world.

As outlined in A Peace to End All Peace, during World War II, the British, in a characteristic act of bald-faced duplicity, incited the Sharif of Mecca to fight the Ottoman Empire, in return for the title of King of the Arabs if victory should result. It was a plan devised by London’s Middle East team, who were joined by Winston Churchill and Arnold Toynbee of the infamous Round Tablers. Outlining the policy was T. E. Lawrence “of Arabia”:


If the Sultan of Turkey were to disappear, then the Caliphate by common consent of Islam would fall to the family of the prophet, the present representative of which is Hussein, the Sharif of Mecca. Hussein’s activities seem beneficial to us, because it marches with our immediate aims, the breakup of the Islamic bloc and the disruption of the Ottoman Empire, and because the states the would set up would be as harmless to ourselves as Turkey was. If properly handled the Arab States would remain in a state of political mosaic, a tissue of jealous principalities incapable of cohesion, and yet always ready to combine against an outside force.[1]

Up to that point, the British had been working to undermine the Ottoman Empire from within, by supporting the nationalistic causes of various ethnic communities and rival sects like, certain Sufi orders, and Freemasonry.[2] These actions were mainly the work of the Oxford Movement, whose sponsors were the British Royal family, and many leading prime ministers and aides, such as Benjamin Disraeli, Lord Palmerston and the highly influential Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Bulwer-Lytton, the English politician and novelist who was immensely popular during his time, was also the “Great Patron” of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (SRIA), and one of the leading occultists of his day. Overseeing the movement was Scottish Rite Freemasonry, whereby missionaries were assigned to build branches of the rite throughout the Empire.[3]

Under the guidance Palmerston, who served as Prime Minister of England, Giuseppe Mazzini, who had apparently succeeded Weihaupt as head of the Illuminati, had organized all his revolutionary sects: Young Italy, Young Poland, and Young Europe.[4] In 1870, Mazzini along with Palmerston, Otto von Bismarck and Albert Pike, all thirty third degree Scottish Rite Masons, completed an agreement to create a supreme universal rite of Masonry that would arch over all the other rites. Known as the Palladium Rite, it was to be the pinnacle of Masonic power.

Pike had been assisted in the founding of the KKK by Judah P. Benjamin, the individual who gave the order for Lincoln’s assassination.[5] Benjamin was a British subject and leader of the B’nai B’rith and the Order of Zion, whose funding came from the London and Paris banking houses of Rothschild, Montefiore, and de Hirsch. According to Jeffrey Steinberg et al., in Dope Inc, the Order of Zion formed part of an underground network of subversion headed by Lord Palmerston, as Patriarch of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.[6] The Order of Zion was the elite secret arm of the masonic-style order Alliance Israëlite Universelle, whose American arm was the B’nai B’rith. The Alliance was founded in 1860, by Benjamin Disraeli, as well as Moses Montefiore and Adolph Cremieux (1796 – 1880), Supreme Council of the Order of Misraïm, as well as Grand Master of Scottish Rite Freemasonry.

Benjamin Disraeli

Abdul Qadir al Jazairi

One of the chief agents of the Oxford Movement was Jamal ud Din al Afghani, who despite being the Grand Master of the Egyptian Freemasons, came to be regarded as the founder of the fundamentalist reform movement of Islam known as Salafism, from which emerged the Muslim Brotherhood, the primary agents of Western policy in the Middle East.

Afghani was part of a wider circle of British espionage that was centered around the person of Abdul Qadir al Jazairi, (1808 – 1883), an Algerian national hero who led a struggle against the French invasion of their country in the mid-nineteenth century. Abdul Qadir was ultimately forced to surrender, and eventually settled in Damacus, Syria, under a generous pension from the French.

In 1860, he attained international fame when he and his personal guard saved large numbers of Christians who had come under attack by the local Druze population. As reward, the French government bestowed on him the Grand Cross of the Légion d’honneur and he was also honored by Abraham Lincoln. As well, the town of Elkaker of Iowa was named after him.

Abdul Qadir was also friends with Jane Digby and Sir Richard Burton, the famous British explorer, spy and fellow Freemason, who had been made consul in Damascus in 1869. Digby, or Lady Ellenborough (1807-1881), was an English aristocrat who lived a scandalous life of romantic adventures, having had four husbands and many lovers. She died in Damascus, Syria as the wife of Arab Sheikh Medjuel al Mezrab, who was twenty years her younger. Burton (1821-1890) is best-known for traveling in disguise to Mecca, his search for the source of the Nile, as well as a translation of One Thousand and One Nights and bringing the Kama Sutra to publication in English. Ouida reported in 1906 that “Men at the FO [Foreign Office] …used to hint dark horrors about Burton, and certainly justly or unjustly he was disliked, feared and suspected… not for what he had done, but for what he was believed capable of doing.”[7]

Jamal ud Din al Afghani

Burton and Digby were also close friends of Afghani’s handler, Wilfred Scawen Blunt and his wife Lady Anne, a grand-daughter of poet Lord Byron. Blunt had supposedly become a convert to Islam under the influence of Afghani, and shared his hopes of establishing a British-sponsored Arab Caliphate based in Mecca to replace the Ottoman Sultan in Istanbul. When Blunt visited Abdul Qadir in 1881, he decided that he was the most promising candidate for Caliphate, an opinion shared by Afghani and his disciple, Mohammed Abduh.[8]

Burton was also an avid occultist, and like Abdul Qadir, a member of the Qadiriyya Sufi order, because

“Sufism,” he claimed, is “the Eastern parent of Freemasonry.”[9] Burton was also a member of the Theosophical Society, started by Helena P. Blavatsky, who visited him in Damascus. Blavatsky was the great oracle of the Occult Revival of the late eighteenth century, whose channeled books are considered “scriptures” of Freemasonry, and who is regarded as the godmother of the New Age movement. According to historian K. Paul Johnson, Afghani was one of Blavatsky’s “Ascended Masters,” from whom she learned her central doctrines. Afghani was the reputed head of a mysterious order known as the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, which exercised a profound influence over the occult societies of the period, culminating in the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) of the scandalous Aleister Crowley.



Gérard Encausse (aka Papus)

Gérard Encausse (aka Papus)

Jamal Aghani was in Russia in 1886, where according to Scawen Blunt, he "threw himself into the opposite camp, that of the advocates of a Russo-Turkish alliance against England."[10] Afghani joined up with Blavatsky’s publisher, Mikhail Katkoff, who was interested in organizing anti-British agitation in Central Asia and India. These activities were in alignment with the new political directions of the Great Game, that would feature actors connected to the Theosophical Society and the Martinist Order, headed by Gérard Encausse, also known as Papus. As a young man, Encausse studied Kabbalah and later joined the French Theosophical Society, and was also a member of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor and the Golden Dawn.

In establishing the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Croix (OKR+C), which came to be regarded as the “inner circle” of the Martinist Order, Papus dreamed of uniting occultists into a revived Rosicrucian brotherhood, as an international occult order, in which he hoped the Russian Empire would play a leading role as the bridge between East and West.[11]

Papus believed that the vast Russian Empire was the only power capable of thwarting the conspiracy of the “Shadow Brothers,” and to prepare for the coming war with Germany. Papus served Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra both as physician and occult consultant. Through Papus the Imperial family became acquainted with his friend and spiritual mentor, the mystic Maître Philippe who exercised an important influence on the royal family before Rasputin. He was believed to possess remarkable healing powers, as well as the ability to control lightning, to travel invisibly. The purported forgers of the Protocols of Zion were also said to have made use of an earlier version of the work discovered by Papus.[12]

Papus had founded the OKR+C along with Saint-Yves d’Alveydre, who proposed the political philosophy of synarchism, which became the bedrock of much twentieth century fascism. Saint-Yves was Grand Master of the Martinist Order, and close to Victor Hugo and to Bulwer-Lytton’s son, the Earl of Lytton, a former Ambassador to France and Viceroy of India. Neville Bulwer-Lytton, the son of the Earl of Lytton, married Judith Blunt-Lytton, the daughter of Wilfred Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne.

Saint-Yves d'Alveydre

Saint-Yves d'Alveydre

It was after 1885 that Saint-Yves began to refer to an Asian origin of synarchism, after he met the mysterious Haji Sharif. Although Haji Sharif presented himself as “a high official in the Hindu church,” he had a Muslim name, and was familiar with Hebrew and Arabic. This Haji Sharif would most certainly refer to Jamal ud Din al Afghani. In 1885, Afghani was in France, and with his disciple Muhammad Abduh, he began publishing an Arabic newspaper in Paris entitled “The Indissoluble Blond,” also the name of a secret organization he founded two years earlier. Among the members of Afghani’s circle in Paris were Christian and Jewish Middle Easterners with connections to Wilfred Blunt, as well as the Egyptian-Jewish actor and James Sanua, who was a travelling companion of Blavatsky.[13]

Synarchy came to mean “rule by secret societies,” serving as priestly class in direct communication with the “gods,” meaning the Ascended Masters of Agartha, a legendary city that is said to reside in the hollow earth. Agartha was connected to the myth of Shambhala, popularized by Blavatsky as the legendary home of the Aryan race, and derived its influence from Bulwer-Lytton’s occult novel, The Coming Race or Vril: The Power of the Coming Race.

Like Shambhala, Agartha was situated in Central Asia, which connected it to the myth of the Lost Tribes of Israel, who were expected by Jews to come forth at the advent of the messiah to assist him in his conquest of the world. In Medieval times, the so-called Lost Tribes of Israel were known to the Jews as "Red Jews," and believed to reside in Central Asia, where they had been absorbed among the Turkic peoples, themselves believed to be descended from Gog and Magog.

Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great

According to Colin Gow, the legend of the Red Jews was a conflation of three separate traditions: the prophetic references to Gog and Magog, the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and an episode from the Alexander Romance. In the Alexander Romance, the earliest version of which was produced in the third century AD, with the aid of God, Alexander and his men closed the narrow pass in the Caucasus by constructing a huge wall of steel, keeping the barbarous Gog and Magog from pillaging the peaceful southern lands. The wall has been frequently identified with the Caspian Gates of Derbent, Russia, and with the Pass of Darial, on the border between Russia and Georgia. An alternative theory links it to the Great Wall of Gorgan, also known as "Alexander's Wall,” on the south-eastern shore of the Caspian Sea, 180 km of which is still preserved to this day.

The accounts are reflected in the enigmatic figure mentioned in the Quran, named Dhul-Qarnayn, literally "He of the Two Horns.” Similarly, on Macedonian coinage of the third century BC, Alexander was typically portrayed with ram’s horns. According to Hadith, unable to pass the wall, Gog and Magog have been digging below ground ever since, but will emerge at the time of the return of the Messiah Jesus, to afflict the earth, but Jesus will pray to God to eradicate them.[14]

According to Jewish legends, the Lost Tribes of Israel were said to have been carried in the eighth century BC to a place called “Arzareth,” referring to the Araxes, a river that borders Armenia, Iran and Azerbaijan. Azraeth is also connected to Asgaard, the legendary homeland of Odin, the forefather of the Scandinavians. In the 1870s, Ernest Renan was inspired to place Asgaard in Central Asia. Another French writer, Louis Jacolliot (1837 – 1890), in Les Fils de Dieu (“The Sons of God”) wrote at the same time about a city of “Asgartha.”



Rene Guenon

Réne Guénon

Papus, the most high-profile follower of Saint-Yves, worked to put the synarchist ideals into practice by fusing the various secret societies of his day. He organized an “International Masonic Conference” in Paris in 1908 at which he first met Theodor Reuss the founder of the OTO of Aleister Crowley. Reciprocally, Papus assisted Reuss in the formation of the OTO’s Gnostic Catholic Church, based on Crowley’s Book of the Law. In 1913, Papus was elected to the office of Grand Hierophant of the Rites of Memphis and Misraïm.

Papus had a particular influence on one of the most influential occultists of the twentieth century, René Guénon (1886 – 1951), who would continue to offer intellectual inspiration to much of the political right.[15] Guénon was initiated into Martinism and the Rite of Memphis-Mizraim in 1907, and the OKR+C. Guénon founded the occult school of Traditionalism, which suggests that all exoteric religions share a single underlying occult tradition. Therefore, according to Guénon, one could choose any religion as one’s outward belief, and so he chose Islam.

Guénon was initiated in 1912 in the Shadhili Sufi order, which had been involved in a scandal that included Richard Burton. The inner circle of the Shadhili met at Abdul Qadir’s residence in Damascus to meditate and pray “for enlightenment before the throne of God.”[16] Finally, as related by Burton’s wife Isabel, they become conscious of a presence among them and used to hear and see things they did not understand. Finally, they received a vision that assured them it was the religion of Christianity which they were seeking. Richard and Isabel threw their support behind the Shadhili, and attempted to secure support for their conversion. But the British government, fearing the political consequences, removed Burton from his post in Damascus.[17]

Guénon’s initiation was effected by Swedish convert to Islam Ivan Aguéli, who was also interested in Kabbalah, and performed under the authority of the friend of Abdul Qadir al Jazairi, Sheikh Abder Rahman Illaysh al Kabir, a Freemason and head of the Maliki Madhhab at Al Azhar University. As a Freemason, al Kabir also aimed to demonstrate the relationship between the symbols of Freemasonry and Islam.[18] Al Kabir was responsible for the Fatwa that launched the Urabi revolt, that ultimately provided a pretext for the British to move in and “protect” the Suez Canal. The agent-provocateur revolt was followed by a formal invasion and occupation that made Egypt a colony.

The two principle organizations behind the revolt were created by Jamal Afghani: a nationalist organization called Nationalist Liberal Party, which was assisted by Scawen Blunt, and the Mazzini-inspired Young Egypt. Both were united in their membership in Afghani’s French Masonic lodges.

Arminius Vambery

Arminius Vambery

When Afghani founded Young Egypt, it was mainly composed of members of the Young Turks, a Masonic political party, also known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), who were the primary agents for the overthrow of the Ottoman caliphate, and inspired by the ambitions of Pan-Turksim. Pan-Turkism was first called for in the 1860s by a Hungarian Zionist named Arminius Vambery (1832-1913), an agent for Lord Palmerston, who had become an adviser to the Ottoman Sultan.[19] Vambery was inspired by Alexander Csoma de Körös, who was an important source for Blavatsky, and the first in the West to mention Shambhala, which he regarded as the origin of the Turkish people, and which he situated in the Altai mountains and Xinjiang.

Vambery’s reputation in England as an expert on Muslims began with his publication of Arminius Vambery: His Life and Adventures, about his travels throughout the Middle East and Central Asia disguised as a dervish between 1862-64. Vambery also chronicled the strange vampire and other legends of the Balkans, and knew author and Golden Dawn member Bram Stoker, to whom he acted as his consultant on Transylvanian culture. The character of Professor Van Helsing in Stoker’s novel, Dracula, is said to be based on Vambery.

The Young Turks were created in the 1890s by a prominent Sephardic Jewish family in Ottoman Salonika (modern Thessaloniki, Greece) and an official of the Italian B’nai B’rith, named Emmanuel Carasso. Carasso was also the grand master of an Italian masonic lodge there called “Macedonia Resurrected.” The lodge was the headquarters of the Young Turks, and all the top Young Turk leadership were members. The Italian masonic lodges in the Ottoman Empire had been set up by a follower of Mazzini named Emmanuel Veneziano, who was also a leader of the European affiliate of the B’nai B’rith, as well as the Alliance Israëlite Universelle.[20]

Young Turks

Young Turk revolt in 1908

Abdul Hamid II, the Ottoman Sultan, was overthrown in 1908 in a military coup carried out by the Young Turks, who seized power over the Empire. While in power, the Young Turks ran several newspapers including The Young Turk, of which Zeev Jabotinsky was the editor. Jabotinsky was the founder of Revisionist Zionism, on which the policy of the Zionist terrorist faction the Irgun was based, and helped form the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I. He was educated as a young man in Italy, and later described Mazzini’s ideas as the basis for the Zionist movement. Jabotinsky arrived in Turkey shortly after the Young Turks seized power, to take over the paper. The paper was owned by a member of the Turkish cabinet, but it was funded by the Russian Zionist federation, and managed by the B’nai B’rith.[21]

Turkish nationalism based on the pseudoscientific race theories of Europe had become the guiding ideology of the Young Turks.[22] From the middle of the nineteenth century, the British had worked to develop an alliance between several leading Sufi orders in Turkey, such as the Bektashi who had strong associations with the crypto-Jewish community of the Dönmeh, as well as the Naqshabandi, and the Scottish Rite Freemasons of Afghani and his followers.[23]

Like the Nazis, the Pan-Turkists aspired to return to the true pagan heritage of their nation. Through the influence of the beliefs of the Bektashi Sufis, Pan-Turkism aspired at reviving shamanism as the true religion of the Turkish heritage. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the Young Turks expanded on the ambitions of Pan-Turkism and tried to replace the lost legacy with a new Turkish commonwealth. The legend of Agartha was therefore promulgated by Ataturk, who sought to create a sense of nationalism to replace the religion of Islam as the primary identity of the new Turkish secular regime.[24]


The Muslim Brotherhood

Saint-Yves d'Alveydre

Hasan al Banna

Afghani’s chief pupil, Mohammed Abduh, also Masonic Grand Master of the United Lodge of Egypt, was made the Grand Mufti of Egypt, the chief legal authority in Islam, by Lord Cromer, where he instituted reforms that benefitted British imperial objectives. Abduh’s pupil, Rashid Rida, also a Freemason and a known reformer, was the mentor of Hasan al Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Banna’s Brotherhood was established with a grant from England’s Suez Canal Company in 1928, and over the following quarter century would be at the disposal of British diplomats and MI6 as a tool of British policy.[25]

Abdel Halim Mahmoud

Abdel Halim Mahmoud

More disturbingly, John Loftus, a former US government prosecutor and former Army intelligence officer, discovered that Hitler commissioned al Banna to found the Muslim Brotherhood, to serve as an arm of German intelligence in the Middle East.[26] Effectively, the Nazi Party was the result of a merging of the German branch of Crowley’s OTO and the Thule Gesellschaft of Germany, whose notions of Aryan superiority were derived from the ideas of Blavatsky and Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Thus the Brotherhood and the Nazis represented two branches of the influence of Jamal Afghani.

From early on, al Banna was a member of a sub-branch of the Shadhili Sufi order.[27] Many of the head lecturers of al Azhar University in Cairo have also been followers of the Shadhili. Prominent among them was a friend to René Guénon, Abdel Halim Mahmoud, who eventually served as Grand Imam of Al Azhar and became an important source of inspiration for members of the Muslim Brotherhood, and his articles were published in their magazines.

Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier note in their classic work, The Morning of the Magicians, that Nazism was “’Guénonism’ plus tanks.”[28] Guénon later dedicated his book The Symbolism of the Cross to al Kabir. By “cross,” Guénon meant the occult symbol of the swastika, employed by the Nazis as a symbol of their “Aryan” heritage. Guénon regarded the swastika as “a truly universal symbol.”

Idries Shah

In addition to Guénon, two important mystics who contributed to the myth of the Sufi origin of Freemasonry were George Gurdjieff and Idries Shah who, as reported by Robert Dreyfuss in Hostage to Khomeini, worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in London. Shah’s chief associate was Gurdjieff disciple, J. G. Bennett, head of British intelligence in Istanbul. As the secretary to Gerald Gardner, one of the key representatives of Wicca, whose rituals he developed with Aleister Crowley, Shah was responsible for popularizing that European witchcraft, as well as the occult tradition in general, was derived from Sufism. Specifically, in The Sufis, Shah mentions as a source of this occult tradition the Aniza tribe, to which belonged not only Jane Digby’s husband Sheikh Medjuel al Mezrab, but most importantly, the royal families of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Shah’s claim may reveal the hidden basis for the collaboration between the West and Saudi Arabia, which has been the primary source of funding for the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities, conducted on behalf of the CIA.

Shah was also a member of the Club of Rome, a project initiated by the Rockefeller family at their estate at Bellagio, Italy.[29] The founders of the Club of Rome were all senior officials of NATO. These included Aurelio Peccei, the chairman of Fiat who was also chairman of the Economic Committee of the Atlantic Institute, and Alexander King, the co-founder, who was Director General of Scientific Affairs of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Seyyed Hossein Nasr

Seyyed Hossein Nasr

In 1965, Shah founded SUFI (Society for Understanding Fundamental Ideas), and dubbed himself Great-Sheikh, not only of the Naqshbandi, but of all Sufi orders. Several presentations were given by scientists like Alexander King to the Institute for Cultural Research (ICR), which evolved from SUFI.[30] Other visitors, pupils, and would-be pupils included the poet Ted Hughes, novelists Alan Sillitoe and Doris Lessing, zoologist Desmond Morris, and psychologist Robert Ornstein. Over the following years, Shah established Octagon Press as a means of distributing reprints of translations of Sufi classics. Several of Shah's books were discussed the Rand Corporation.[31]

At a November 1977 Lisbon conference sponsored by the Interreligious Peace Colloquium—an organization set up by Cyrus Vance and Sol Linowitz—Peccei conspired with several leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly with the well-known Iranian “court philosopher” who was highly active during the Iranian revolution of 1979, Seyyed Hossein Nasr of Teheran University, a personal friend of the Shah of Iran.[32]

Nasr is a Perennialist in the school of Guénon’s Traditionalism. Nasr was initiated into the Shadhili by Ahmad al-Alawi (1869-1934), who had been recommended to him by Guénon. Al-Alawi had founded the Alawiyya branch of Shadhili after supposedly being instructed to adopt the name for the order and himself in a personal vision of Ali, the Prophet Muhammed’s son-in-law.

idries Shah

Frithjof Schuon

Nasr was a student of Guénon’s leading disciple Frithjof Schuon who established the Maryamiyya branch of the Shadhili in Europe and North America. Some of Schuon’s most eminent students include supposed converts to Islam, Titus Burckhardt and Martin Lings, best known as the author of a very popular and positively reviewed biography of Muhammad, first published in 1983. But according to Andrew Rawlinson, in Book of Enlightened Masters, Schuon was not as a pious Sufi but as a charlatan.

Shuon was also interested in Native American sacred traditions, and was adopted by a Sioux family and Crow medicine man and Sun Dance chief. The author of Against the Modern World, Mark Sedgwick discovered photos sent to him by Rawlinson, showing Shuon dressed up as a Native American chief, surrounded by young women in bikinis. Another showed Schuon naked, except for what looked like a Viking helmet. Another showed a painting by Schuon of a nude Virgin Mary, who is known as Myriam in the Quran, after which his order is named. Burckhardt expressed concerns about Schuon and episodes “involving women,” but reminded other Maryiamis that the followers of a Sheikh [Sufi master] should judge him by his teachings, not his actions![33]

In 1976, the Traditionalist views of the Maryamiyya featured prominently in the World of Islam Festival in London. It involved Queen Elizabeth II, who opened the festival, as well as the archbishop of Canterbury who received Abdel Halim Mahmoud. Exhibitions were managed by Seyyed Hossein Nasr and Martin Lings, and though books by Traditionalists and Maryamiyya featured throughout, the festival generated much favourable publicity for “traditional” Islam.

Burckhardt is read by Prince Charles, and according to Sedgwick, “Traditionalist influences are increasingly visible in some of his speeches,” which explains rumors of his supposed conversion to Islam.[34] Prince Charles has also written a foreword to Lings' book on the esoteric meanings in Shakespeare's plays. Prince Charles' close friend and spiritual mentor, Sir Laurens van der Post, a friend and follower of Carl Jung, introduced him to Temenos, a publication of Schuon's followers. One of these was English poet and literary critic Katherine Raine, who studied spiritual magic with a group she identified as descended from the Golden Dawn. Prince Charles then encouraged Raine to establish the Temenos Academy, within his own Prince's Foundation.


The New Great Game

After World War II, the pretext of a Cold War with the Soviet Union was used by the US to carry out covert action in all countries of the world. CIA chief Allen Dulles devised a plan whereby on the explicit request of the Pentagon, secret armies of fascist terrorists, including many former leading Nazis, were set up across Western Europe with the coordination of NATO, known “Stay Behind” units. The most infamous “stay-behind” unit was Operation Gladio of Italy, which was responsible for the Strategy of Tension, which carried out false-flag terror operations to discredit the popular communist party, culminating in the assassination of Aldo Moro by the Red Brigades and the Bologna train station massacre of 1980.

Julius Evola

The chief inspiration for the fascist Gladio networks was Julius Evola (1898-1974), who is recognized as the primary heir of Réne Guénon’s Traditionalism.[35] Evola reflected the synarchist belief in the authority of adepts of secret societies. According to Evola, the superior priestly class of the world of Tradition was not merely a professional priesthood, but royalty itself because, in Evola’s view, temporal power proceeded from spiritual authority.

Mussolini, being impressed by these ideas, backed Evola’s launch of the journal Blood and Spirit. Evola traveled to Germany in 1942 and obtained support for German collaboration on the publication from leading Nazi race theorists. In the post-war years, Evola's writings were held in high esteem by members of the neo-fascist movement in Italy. According to one scholar, “Evola’s thought can be considered one of the most radically and consistently antiegalitarian, antiliberal, antidemocratic, and antipopular systems in the twentieth century."[36]

Julius Evola has been the primary inspiration to Alexandr Dugin, who is part of a plot involving the Turkish branch of Gladio, to dupe the Muslim peoples of Central Asia into creating a Neo-Caliphate with the support of Russia.

Although the Americans managed to defeat the Soviet Union, conflict with the two remaining powers of Russia and China for control of Central Asia is not yet over, and the New Great Game continues. And just as the occult legend of Shambhala was employed by the competing sides in the earlier episodes of the Great Game, now that the American’s have secured their hold in much of the region, so the same legend continues to be featured in the US’s actions, but now more precisely in the region said to be the location of the legendary city, Xinxiang, China.

To this purpose, the same pan-Turkism that first gave rise to the popularization of the story of Shambhala is being used by the Americans, in a covert strategy that is deceptively exploiting the notion of uniting Turkic peoples of Central Asia and under a neo-Caliphate to be ruled from Turkey.

The Turkish Gladio, known as Counter-Guerrilla, have exerted great influence over the country’s Cold War history, and were responsible for numerous unsolved acts of violence. Counter-Guerrilla were responsible for the development of the Ergenekon, the name given to an alleged clandestine, Kemalist ultra-nationalist organization in Turkey, with ties to members of the country’s military and security forces. “Ergenekon” is a name deriving from a supposed Turkish legend describing it as a mythical place located in Eurasia, in the inaccessible valleys of the Altai Mountains, serving as a model for the synarchist idea of the mythical underground realm of Agartha.[37]

The Ergenekon connection to Agartha is related to the Pan-Turkism movement, which the US sought to exploit after World War II in their continuing fight against communism. The Paris-based Intelligence Newsletter reported in 1990 that they had obtained declassified strategy documents with specific reference in how the Pan-Turkism movement could be exploited strategically by the United States.[38]

Colonel Alparsan Turks

US support of Pan-Turkism in bolstering Turkey’s role in NATO came in the person of a right-wing extremist named Colonel Alparsan Turks, who during World War II had been the contact person of the Nazis in Turkey. After the war, Turks made contacts with the CIA in 1948 and set up a secret anti-Communist stay-behind army in Turkey, eventually renamed the Special Forces Command, which operated Counter-Guerrilla.[39] To staff the Counter-Guerrilla, Turks had recruited heavily among the Grey Wolves, a right-wing terrorist group which he also ran.

Based explicitly on the Pan-Turkism movement, the Grey Wolves derived their name and flag from the mythological legend of the grey wolves that led the Turk peoples out of Asia to their homeland in Anatolia. The Grey Wolves’ dream is to create the “Turan,” the “Great Turkish Empire,” to include all Turkic peoples of the Central Asian countries of the former Soviet Union, as well as the Caucasus and the Uighurs' homeland of East Turkestan in the Xinjiang, China.

According to Turkish authorities, the Grey Wolves carried out 694 murders between 1974 and 1980.[40] As related by investigative reporter Lucy Komisar, the 1981 attempt on John Paul II's life by Grey Wolves member Mehmet Ali Agca may have been related to Gladio.[41]



Alexandr Dugin

Alexandr Dugin

Alexandr Dugin is the suspected leader of Ergenekon.[42] But Dugin is not a Turk. He is a Russian, and the most popular ideologist of Russian expansionism, nationalism, and fascism. He was born in Moscow into a family of a high-ranking Soviet military intelligence officer, and continues to have close ties to the Kremlin and Russian military. There were many reports that Dugin’s Eurasia Movement was heavily funded by associations of retired officers of the SVR and the FSB, the foreign intelligence and domestic security services into which the Soveit KBG had been divided in 1991.[43]

Dugin likes to see himself as the inheritor of the “ancient Eurasian order,” elements of which were already present in the Sicherheitsdienst (SD), the secret service of the SS.[44] Like Zbigniew Brzezinski, Dugin is also a follower of Sir Halford Mackinder, seeing Central Asia as a key aspect of geopolitics, but taking the reverse view, where he sees Russia as needing to create a Eurasian block to impede American imperialism.

Dugin’s platform is the basis of the Eurasia Party which he founded in 2001. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Dugin posited that Russian civilization does not belong in the “European” category, and that the October Revolution of the Bolsheviks was a necessary reaction to the modernization of Russian society. It suggested that the Soviet regime was capable of evolving into a new national, non-European Orthodox Christian government, shedding off the initial mask of proletarian internationalism and militant atheism.

Sometimes called Greater Russia, the movement closely aligned to Pan-Turkism, and is described as a political aspiration of pan-Russian nationalists to retake some or all of the territories of the other republics of the former Soviet Union, and territory of the former Russian Empire, and amalgamate them into a single Russian state.

Dugin’s call for an alliance with Islam is reflected in his associate Gaydar Jamal, a Muscovite of Azerbaijani origin, who exemplified the relationship between Traditionalism and Islamic extremism. Once a member of Naqshbandi Sufism, Jamal was the founder of the Party of the Islamic Renaissance (PIR) in 1990. In 1992, Jamal led a splinter group towards alliances with Islamist extremists in the Middle East and with the domestic opposition to Yeltsin, in the form of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF).

Hasan al Turabi

Hasan al Turabi

Jamal’s relations with the Middle East included Hasan al Turabi, leader of the Sudanese Islamic Front. In 1991, after he left Saudi Arabia for his opposition to Ibn Baz’s Gulf War Fatwa, bin Laden first went to Pakistan and back to Afghanistan, before finally settling in Sudan. General Omar Hassan al-Bashir had taken power in a military coup in 1989. Just a few months later, at a Muslim Brotherhood meeting in London, it was decided that Sudan would be a new base for the Islamist movement, and a Muslim Brotherhood leadership council of nineteen members was subsequently established in Khartoum under Turabi, who would emerge as the real power in the Sudanese regime.[45] According to bin Laden biographer Roland Jacquard, Turabi visited London in 1992 and was a guest at the Round Table’s Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA).[46] In addition, Turabi seems to have Masonic connections. When their relationship had broken down, and after Turabi had foiled an attempted coup by him and his party, Bashir denounced Turabi as being sponsored by “Zionists and freemasons.”[47]

Jamal’s PIR was replaced by the Islamic Committee of Russia (ICR), which became part of a network of radical Islamic movements under Turabi’s leadership, which included Hamas in Palestine and Hezbollah in Lebanon.[48] According to Jamal’s own admission, in 1999 the ICR formed a united front with the Movement in Support of the Army, Defence Industry and Military Science, an independent opposition group aligned with the CPRF and run by the chairman of the Duma State Security Committee.

Claudio Mutti

Claudio Mutti

Another example of the meeting of Traditionalism and radical Islam is Claudio Mutti, whose works have been promoted by Dugin. Mutti was also apparently a friend of Luc Jouret, the founder of the notorious Solar Temple mass suicide cult with links to Gladio.[49] Mutti, a one-time follower of Franco Freda, converted to Islam through the influence of Guénon, which he discovered through his study of Evola. From 1971 onwards, Freda had been put on trial several times, notably for involvement in the Strategy of Tension. Although eventually acquitted he spent several years in jail for the crime of “subversive association.”

Mutti had taught Romanian and Hungarian at the University of Bologna, before losing that job when he also had to serve a prison term for his terrorist activities. Mutti founded the publishing house Edizioni all’Insegna del Veltro, which published the works of Evola, Nazi ideologue Johann von Leers, Nazi occultist Savitri Devi and Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson. When he converted to Islam, Mutti took the name of Omar Amin, in honor of Johann von Leers, Goebbels’s former anti-Semitic propaganda expert, who had taken the same name before him on his own conversion, when heading Gamal Nasser’s anti-Jewish broadcasting service in Egypt.[50]

Ian Dallas (aka Abdul Qadir al Murabit)

Ian Dallas, a.k.a. Abdalqadir al-Murabit

Mutti was also appointed Emir in the notorious Murabitun Movement, founded by a Scottish convert to Islam named Ian Dallas, a.k.a. Sheikh Abdalqadir al-Murabit. Dallas is also a member of a branch of the Shadhili Sufi order, also descended from Ahmad Al-Alawi, Guénon’s friend who initiated Schuon into the order. Dallas celebrates Hitler as a “great genius and great vision,” praises Wagner as the “most spiritual of men among men in a age of darkness,” and regards the black stone of the Kabbah in Mecca as the Holy Grail. In 1990, he held a symposium in honor of the occultist Ernst Junger, one of the fathers of Nazi ideology, and which ended with a Masonic ceremonial. Also in attendance was Albert Hofmann, the scientist who discovered LSD, associated with the CIA’s MK-Ultra program.[51]

Dugin’s ideas, particularly those on “a Turkic-Slavic alliance in the Eurasian sphere” have recently become popular among certain nationalistic circles in Turkey, most notably among alleged members of Ergenekon. The most prominent figure is Dogu Perinçek, the leader of the Workers Party, and an associate of Dugin, who in 2008 was arrested on suspicion of being a member of Ergenekon. Perinçek combines Kemalism with Marxism but is also a neo-Eurasianist, meaning that he strives towards an alliance between Turkey, Russia, Iran and the Central Asian republics against the Western hemisphere.[52]

Fethullah Gülen

Fethullah Gülen

Despite its claims of presenting an obstacle to American imperialism, Neo-Eurasianism is aligned with recent American designs in Central Asia, through the assistance of the network of Fethullah Gülen and his links to Counter-Guerrilla, who have been fronting for the CIA in the radicalization of Central Asia, involving drug trafficking, money laundering, the nuclear black market, and false-flag terrorism. The Pan-Turkism ideals espoused by Gülen, as an ostensible project of creating a pan-Islamic Caliphate to be ruled from Turkey, is merely part of America’s post Cold War strategy to control Central Asia with the aim of containing Russia and China.

Coordination with the Gülen movement is tied to recent plans to confront China through the support of an independence movement of the Uighurs, a Turkic and predominantly Muslim minority of Xinjiang, in northwestern China. In other words, the supposed location of Agartha. The CIA plotting came to a head in July 2009, with a series of violent clashes that erupted between Uighurs and the Chinese state police and Han Chinese residents in Xinjiang. As was also stated in 2004, with regards to the separatist moves over Xinjiang, according to TurkPulse: “One of the main tools Washington is using in this affair in order to get Turkey involved in the Xinjiang affair is some Turkish Americans, primarily the Fetullah Gülen.”[53]

The majority of the information pertaining to these covert activities has been revealed by FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has claimed, on Iranian state-owned Press TV, that the US was on intimate terms with the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, using them to further certain goals in Central Asia, right up until 9/11.[54] Her highly astute observation is as follows, in full:


    You’ve got to look at the big picture. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the super powers began to fight over control of Central Asia, particularly the oil and gas wealth, as well as the strategic value of the region.

    Given the history, and the distrust of the West, the US realized that it couldn’t get direct control, and therefore would need to use a proxy to gain control quickly and effectively. Turkey was the perfect proxy; a NATO ally and a puppet regime. Turkey shares the same heritage/race as the entire population of Central Asia, the same language (Turkic), the same religion (Sunni Islam), and of course, the strategic location and proximity.

    This started more than a decade-long illegal, covert operation in Central Asia by a small group in the US intent on furthering the oil industry and the Military Industrial Complex, using Turkish operatives, Saudi partners and Pakistani allies, furthering this objective in the name of Islam.

    This is why I have been saying repeatedly that these illegal covert operations by the Turks and certain US persons dates back to 1996, and involves terrorist activities, narcotics, weapons smuggling and money laundering, converging around the same operations and involving the same actors.

    And I want to emphasize that this is “illegal” because most, if not all, of the funding for these operations is not congressionally approved funding, but it comes from illegal activities.

    And one last thing, take a look at the people in the State Secrets Privilege Gallery on my website and you will see how these individuals can be traced to the following; Turkey, Central Asia, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia—and the activities involving these countries.

Also important to note that Nuh Ha Mim Keller features in this story. Today, the most vocal and articulate critics of the Wahhabi/Salafis are the Sufis. And they respond to them by correctly identifying their deviation from traditional Islam. But they do so by providing their own deviations.

Essentially, Keller just belongs to a different camp of Traditionalism. He belongs to the same Shadhili tradition, having been initiated by Al Shaghouri, a student of Ahmed al-Alawi, who was a friend of René Guénon (that links him indirectly to Schuon, Seyyed Hosein Nasr and Ian Dallas aka “Abdul Qadir al Murabit”, a friend of Claudio Mutti).

This entire tradition is traceable to Abdul Qadir al Jazairi, who is regularly praised by Keller. Al Jazairi was responsible for the introduction of Ibn Arabi in Traditionalism. And Keller has repeatedly attempted to justify Sufism as a legitimate science of Islam by referring to Ibn Khaldun, who apparently condoned it, but he fails to mention that Ibn Khaldun heavily chastised much of Sufi tradition as “Biddah” and names Ibn Arabi among the chief innovators. Ibn Khaldun also wrote a Fatwa declaring that Ibn Arabi’s books should be burned.

Thanks to a poster on my Facebook page, I was provided this link which reveals some interesting background on Sheikh Imran.

Salaam aleykum respected & loved brother David.
Many thanks for your astute observations & research, currently reading transhumanism, as it is an area of intersecting commissions transiting
To insidious promised 'Shamhala', no doubt. You may be interested in exploring the two major funders of ObamaDARPA brain initiative, both based on logorithyms (logos & logis): the simons trust of the secretive RENASSAINCE fund manager, Allens fund the hermetized side of microsoft. The work of just one of the funded labs is intriguing, The GENIE PROJECT OF neuroscientist, Svoboda.
Whilst I agree with your cautious assessment of some of the so called sufi tariqats, which are full of occult deviation, as per ibn khaldun & qushayri, there is an authentic stream of Ihsan, & we should be as diligent in pointing this out. As pertains to Sheikh Imran unfortunately the CIS site, which is itself another self appointed aggrandized deviated sufi tariq, is extremely biased & inaccurate. For a researcher of your calibre to use such a site as authoritative evidence is somewhat imbalanced, agenda driven pragmatism, & akin to using Gurdjieff as an authentic referenced authority on Islam. It is my view that if we are to discuss someone's character without their presence then this falls into two disastrous categories of which we have been warned:
back biting of which Shaytan has fooled us into believing is fine on the Internet, which has far greater reach & potential than at any other time in history, and
Suspicions which are the WORST OF LIES!!!
Each of us takes different paths in life which often lead us into unknown territory & associations, needless to say this is not the totality of our belief, nor is it static. A fuller analysis of the work of Sheikh Imran including right of reply, & respectful discourse, would be Islamically just, & avoid us contributing to an already dismissive & unjust oppression. We must first reference the body of Sheikh Imrans work directly and analyse it substantively, rather than be circumspect in drawing a exlusive finality of character & ideology by loose association alone. A bruef read if Sheikh Imran's view of the caliphate makes it clear that infact the opposite of your assertion is true; Sheikh Imran pointedly refutes any attempts at a restoration of a caliphate in the current polity!
Would we, publish a scathing article on our friend JAYSANALYSIS for this: & associate him/her as a shill etc, no, hypocracy, munafiq, would come to mind.
Dearest brother I mean no personal disrespect by my comments, & read your insightful analyses with care before forming my opinion. This in the spirit of Islam & intent. It would certainly not befit us to cast damning dispertions on your whole character as apportioned by writ.
Fi Aman illah

I appreciate your concerns. But as I've noted, Imran Hosein impresses, because he has the rare quality for a Muslim of being fairly knowledgable of world politics. But the fact that is rare for a Muslim doesn't mean he's necessarily very well qualified on the subjects he discusses. Rather, he is emblematic of the problem with Muslims. Muslims today have celebreties, not scholars. And Imran, despite his knowledge, is not a scholar. So his methods of investigation, of formulating opinions and so on, does not follow traditioanl Muslm practice.

We don't use Hadith of the End Times to understand our current situation. We use Shariah to make sense of it. If at any time, after the events come to pass, and they appear to confirm what was predicted, then we can surmise that those prophecies have passed. But not the other way around.

HIs claims are mostly speculative, and not supported by qualified opinion. That's my claim against him. His theoires are of very little value. And he mainly manipulates his evidence to fit his far-fetched theories.

So, given Imran's theories, it is curious that he is associated with Dugin, becuase Dugin's occult theories also involve Gog and Magog.

It's not guilt by association. Dugin is an increasingly imporrtant figure in both occult and fascist circles. We should be very cautious of anyone who associates with him, including Jay Dyer.


"We don't use Hadith of the End Times to understand our current situation".

These hadith are meant to be a warning to the beleivers of the prophet Muhammad. That is very clear. So studying it and using it to make sense of the current world affairs should not be considered incorrect. While i do agree that Imran Hosein's claims are sometimes speculative and incorrect (the Mahdi), and that he's making a big mistake with his interpretation of the Rum propheicies and giving his full support to Russia. I dont know anything about Dugin but i think the whole meeting was just a desperate attempt by Imran to make his interpretation of the Hadith a reality, and not anything to do with him being part of the conspiracy.

"We don't use"We don't use Hadith of the End Times to understand our current situation". to understand our current situation".

These hadith are meant to be a warning to the believers of the prophet Muhammad. That is very clear. So studying it and using it to make sense of the current world affairs should not be considered incorrect. However i do agree that Imran Hosein's claims are sometimes speculative and incorrect (the Mahdi), and that he's making a big mistake with his interpretation of the Rum propheicies and giving his full support to Russia. I dont know anything about Dugin but i think the whole meeting was just a desperate attempt by Imran to make his interpretation of the Hadith a reality, and not anything to do with him being part of the conspiracy.

Yes, of course we can use the Hadith of the End Times to try to interpret what might be happening. But it would be foolish to make plans based on those interpretations, as if we could somehow be able to demonstrate their truth. This is what I mean about interpretations. We don't use End Times Hadith to interpret how we are giong to respond to current situations. Any decision to align with Russia should't be based on an assumption that it fulfills a prophecy, but rather, like in all things, that is conforms to Shariah.

Every response to what is going on should be based on sharia. But what do you think we should do about the hadith that are more than just predictions and prophecies, those that require us to take action? Do we try to interpret it, and then make plans that are within the boundires of sharia or just ignore it?


Also. check this out if you want to know more about Chinas role in all of this, a very well made video in my opinion

Of course. It's the Clash of Civilizaitons being orchestrated. Or what is also called the New Great Game. Where do you think China's new found wealth has come from? Building consumer projects for American corporations.

And this is the point. Dugin is an exponent of synarchism, who are conspirators who maniupate dialectics for political purposes. Also read my article on the Dalai Lama. They were all involved in elevating the prestige of Tibet, but as a pawn in the Great Game that pitted Russia against Britain.

Dugin openly acknowledges his heritage from these same comspiators, and founds his new political ideology on it, called Eurasianism, which he pits against Atlanticism. His plan is to unite the peoples of Eurasia, both Orthodox Christians and Muslims, in a united front.

Imran Hosein is the Pied Piper to lead Muslims into this plot, already calling for an alignment with Russia (based not on Shariah but on his personal interpretations of Hadith about the End Times) and also claiming that the Quran only supports Orthodox Christians and not Catholics.



Wa aleykum salaam, agreed Dugin, & for mine Putin in addition to the masonic orthodox patriarch are a clever renascent ruse, and fall decidedly under the faux dichotomy paradigm; relighting the new age torches, pun intended. Whether Shariah alone is the scholarly vehicle becomes debateable, particularly in light of the fluidity of time. My issue is one of mutual consultation & respectful interface, & return of salaam certainly falls into this category of graciousness implied!
I found it a little rich, that after such a needed vigorous exorcism of crypto muslim sufi, you would reference an equally profundent circus act celebrity as CIS, to offer an obfuscated authentication of a tenous claim of deviation on the part of sheikh Imran. A more qualified scholarly critique as previously suggested, & you have elaborated in initio, in your response, is appreciated. I am unaware of Sheikh Imran having any ongoing or enduring relationship with Dugin, who had invited Sheikh Imran to Moscow, before which they had not met. Of course this offers no proofs of prior & ongoing communication, however, it is merely conjectural to summise an occult affinity.
We must repeat that the response offered was in light of your comments of Sheikh Imran's expression of the creation of a pan russo-turkic alliance for the restitution of the caliphate, which is clearly not evidenced by the body of Sheikh Imran's view, which holds that this is both impractical & not possible nor strategically desired. Certainly Dugin would not be on my list of candidates for an alliance.
Better for us to say Allahu alim.
May Allah swt grant us all the wisdom & strength of discernment.
Ps check the Genie project, interestingly Ramon Cajal, the neuroscientist who fathered platonic contiguity of the neuronal dendritic tree was also a freemason. It was he who inspired the Delgado stimoceiver, as we arrive at todays DARPA cybernetic thought controlled leg.
Again many thanks for your timely & considered reply
Fi Aman Illah

Salamu Alaiykom,

Imran Hosein has indeed had ongoing relations with the Eurasian movement and he can be found in various publications.  Here I will provide one such publication for you to review and ponder:

He is the author of one of the sections of this publication, which is entitled "Ten Major Signs of the Last Day - Has One Just Occured?"

There are others, which simply require a Google, or better still, a Yandex search on the internet.  I am affraid that Shaykh Imran Hosein, indeed, appears to be in bed with the Eurasianist movement.  

I think Imran, like all Eurasianists, including Dugin himself, provide some reasonable criticism of the post-modern Liberal West and its metaphysical shortcomings, in a general sense; however, like all good pedlers of false dialectics, he sugar coats the other side of the dialectic.  This is one thing I see that is consistent with Eurasianists, and that is that they are completely biased in their geopolitical polemics and essentially reduce themselves to demagogery.  With all due respect, Imran Hosein perfectly fits in this category; specifically with his soft position on countries like Iran (the so-called "Islamic Revolution" being a product of US/British/French intelligence operations) and Russia.

You can try and convince yourself that perhaps Imran has not read the books of Dugin and is unaware of his Gnostic and Satanic purviews - very dangerous in my opinion - or you can accept that he has and perhaps views this metaphysical foundation of Eurasianism as a lesser of two evils in the New Great Game.  To me, this is foolish.  Do you think Allah will help the Muslims that join themselves to such people?  These people - the Eurasianists - especially in the upper echellons, are hypocrites of the worst order.  They are occultists and satanists mascarading under a perennialist religious garb. 

JazakAllah Khair.

Salaam aleykum brother Justin
Jazak Allah Khair for your advise. I agree on your stance regarding any alliance with Russia, the Eurasianists or any other quasi nationalist movement. I have made this clear in my previous reply. Softness on Russia, Iran & for mine the warlord 'mujahadeen' of Afghanistan more importantly is my point of departure from Sheikh Imran, as clearly the 1979 US support as posited by Brezezinski to Taliban shows CIA complicity. Yes I have major concerns, particularly as this region of a wider Khorasan is vital to prophetic tradition, & speculation that Khorasan is majorly Afghanistan by implication is perturbing. Personally I hold no allegiances to any group, and so am pleased with additional clarification which may assist us in arriving at truth. Many thanks for the article, which appears principally as a standalone on Sheikh Imran's site, & may have had Sheikh Imran's approval into the geopilitica pdf you provided, but i cannot be sure. Alhumdullillah you extracated yourself from the Moscow group. Brother how did you come to be involved in the first place? & were you involved with Sheikh Imran? It appears that your initial assessment of not knowing for sure about Shekh Imrans complicity has shifted substantially, in so far as you now feel he is a satanist in religious garb, or atleast knowingly complicit with those who are; a dangerous leap of suspicion, hence the prophetic warning, SUSPICION IS THE WORST OF LIES! Yes healthy critique & vigilance are our weapons of discourse, the masonic Russian orthodox patriarch is not my pick of the crop, nor any other body politic, as I feel the Christians who will annunciate support for our oppression, as many past & current have done, will be a more spontaneously inspired amalgam of the righteous people of the book, nor is an ipso facto geopolitical alliance in a tradionally constructed sense an essential component, as the dangers of duplicity, corruption vis vis any satanic co-op, are clear, whether Eastern western or in between. So clearly i have substantive differences which I cannot fundamentally reconcile with those of Sheikh Imran. MashaAllah your strenghth of discernment & use of parlance has grown since your days of vigilantly watching Sheikh Imran, & I sense that you feel betrayed & duped, a position i have often shared! It is alas the Machiavellian plague of all reverts. Have you been able to express your sentiments to Sheikh Imran directly, & are there others who share your experience. He appears to be open to emails & discussion but since I am not associated I cannot vouch thus 100%. For mine I derive truth as best I can from an examination of the body of works available, & mashura, & ijtihad, however I am not qualified to make the leap of faith into affirming by implication or otherwise, of satanic affiliation complicity & belief on the oart of Sheikh Imran. Please do not infer complete support on my part, nor conversely a belittling of your position or David's, however, producing one paragraph concerning Sheikh Imran, to bolster an overarching illumist histioligy of inference & continuity is itself poor scholarship. Claiming in his comments then that the article shows that Sheikh Imran is a sideshow scholar, is incorrect since the paragraph offered is reductionist and bears a tenous thread to the major Zionist philalephes masonic satanic junctures of the article premise in toto. With respect to your previous comments re democracy, Sheikh Imran is clear in discussing the secular sovereignty & modernist devaluation & downright condemnation of religious sovereignty. Surely you do not support the false paradigm of democratic choice! Of course I cannot condemn your right to vote, or call your intent disbelief, nor qualify Sheikh Imran's view as purely Khwaraji. Personally any use of Hegelian oratory magic is something I avoid, as falling into this trap of using dialectic reasoning to denunciate has its own inherent flaws.
I would like to conclude though in affirming my love & brotherhood for both you David & all muslims of pure intent, the quality by which we will all be measùred.
Fi Amanillah brother Justin.
Ps are you French Canadian revert!

Salamu Alaiykom brother Muhammad,

While not claiming to be able to provide a qualified opinion of Sheikh Imran Hosein, I will make a few comments, as I was a staunch follower of his work and lectures for about 4 years or so, and up until a couple of years ago, had seen every lecture he had produced, including his associations with Aleksander Dugin.  To offer criticism without insult and injury is not backbiting.  I belive backbiting would be akin to ad hominem attacks, which are personal insults and chracter attacks.  I do not plan on insulting Imran Hosein or attacking his character, as only Allah knows his motivation, but I think I have some interesting observation to share.

I would first like to say that in every generation of Muslims, since the life of the Pophet, peace and blessing be upon him, there have been large groups of people that have seen the signs of the end times in the world in which they live. Not only in the Islamic communities, but also in the Christian and Jewish communities.  Even long before Prophet Muhammad, in the stories of the Prophets that have been passed down to us through the Qur'an and hadith, there have been many socieities and cultures that had the character of many of the prophetic ahadith relating the minor signs.  My point is that while we may be able to make some associations with our observations of the modern world as they related to the prophetic traditions in Islam, by no means is this the only period in time that this has been done and the knowledge of the coming of the major signs and the day of judgement is with Allah, and Allah alone.  To put even put a rough time frame on this as Sheikh Imran has done on many occasions, one time giving a timeframe of in the next 50 years and of more recent giving a time frame of in the next 20 years, is to claim knowledge that only resides with Allah.  

Also, another observation I have made regarding Sheikh Imran is his methodology in determining that to have a democracy is shirk and to vote in a democratic election is to take part in shirk.  These statements my Sheikh Imran are not in line by any means with classical Islamic Orthodoxy and ineed represent the views of Khawarij.  Are you familiar with the history of the Ikhwan, and of the scholars, who were part of the revival, that manipulated the classical understanding of the Qur'an when it stated that "those that do not rule by what Allah has revealed have disbelieved"?  The classical interpretation of this verse was that this nature of disbelief was "minor disbelief" - as opposed to major disbelief - but, in the 19th century when the Islamic world was being weakened and infiltrated by the British and Germans, Sheikh Maududi and Sayed Qutb manipulated the meaning of this verse in their school of thought to mean "major disbelief", i.e. shirk (associating partners with Allah).  Why is Sheikh Imran Hosein using this interpretation to claim that to take part in an election is shirk?  Again, I am no expert and do not claim to be able to offer a qualified opinion on Imran Husein's overall methodology; however, this connection to the methodology of Maududi and Qutb is very suspect to me.  And she be suspect to all Muslims.

Also, I was following Imran Hosein when he met with Aleksander Dugin at Moscow State Univeristy, and this is how I was first introduced to Eurasinism and Fourth Political Theory, for which I have read a lot of literature and even got involved with some of the organizers in the movement that are close to Dugin.  I would ask you to simply look at the symbol for Dugin's Eurasianist movement to get an idea of the root of this geopolitical philosophy; it is the symbol for chaos magic.  Dugin's last chapter of his book on Fourth Political Theory is entitled "the Metaphysics of Chaos" and if you read that chapter with a dicerning heart, you will see the satanic influences on Dugin's philosophical outlook.  He is an avaowed occultist and left hand path satanist.  While Dugin offers various interesting dialogue and criticism of American-style liberalism, he goes to extremes, in the same way Imran Hosein goes to extremes.

I don't know if Imran Hosein is part of an agenda and is knowingly manipulating Muslims.  I don't know for sure; however, if one is to be a good manipulator and really lead people astray, he must mix much truth with lies for his manipulation to take hold.  However I will not say the same thing about Dugin.  I have researched him thoroughly and read his books.  He is a very dnagerous man and is an open facsist and theosophical race theory hustler.

I invite you to read an article on Dugin by a Croatian Philosopher by the name of Branko Malic.  Search on Google: "Kali Tribune, Against the Gnostics".

JazakAllah khair

Wa aleykum salaam dearest brother Justin,
I agree wholeheartedly tha Dugin is a dangerous occultist, & also re the misleading ikwan. If you reference my response you will find that I support neither Dugin Russia or Putin, of whom Dugin raucosly advises.
Furthermore I do not support all the views of Sheikh Imran, however, in fairness if grave implications of occult alliances on the part of Sheikh Imran are strongly implied without clear evidence then this is circumspect SUSPICION, clearly warned by our beloved nabi saw & also Quran. As to backbiting, offering one paragraph that actually clearly misrepresents Sheikh Imran's position on both the caliphate & pan turkish designs, & then align it with the main premise of the article replete with occultic geneology is a clear enough statement. Better to do as you say, & research Dugin, alert our brother Imran as to Dugin's satanic agenda, & for David to offer such a brotherly forum for constructive debate, I'm sure Sheikh Imran would be obliging. I am definitely not discounting what David has researched, & am gladdened and agree with your summation, though I think I can distinguish between constructive criticism & outright implied allegations. Our major concern is unity of the umma, & in thus I retain love for both you David & Sheikh Imran. So in some way it is our resposibility to warn one another of dangers & pitfalls, including maududi et al. Again we cannot raise the spectre of 'sufism' & then refer to suspect Sufi sites such as CIS as authoritative justification or proofs.
Jazak Allah Khair for those you have shared
Fi Aman Illah may Allah swt grant us strength of dicernment & the maturity to continue respectful mashura.

I had a look at that web link to Cifa. Never heard of it before nor the "Sahih Imam". It seems that it is a movement created by Harun Yahya aka Adnan Okhtar.

Also the statement "We preach peaceful coexistence of people belong to all faiths and sects" is kinda odd with the rhetoric and stance of that website. Also that kind of line, is reminiscent of one world order new world order irreligion.

A very odd website it is...

but is the most strangest thing their is the following:
"Watch the following video clip, even Salafis have refuted Shaikh Imran's above claims. "

The website claims to regard salafis as deviant, but wants the reader to refer to salafis?

I find it strange when you have two sides who destroy the other creating a divide in a community together attack a single person.

Also I must make a note at what was said in the video titled "scandal". It seems that the contention was on what was mentioned about Ali may God be pleased with him, that at one point before the prohibition of alcohol, verse 2:219 gave some recommendation against alcohol. Though on one occasion according to ahadith that Ali may God be pleased with him had drunk alcohol and afterwards led the salat and made a mistake in the recitation and there after that the verse of prohibition of intoxication before prayer was mentioned.

In your article you mentioned The British desire to remove Ottoman Caliphate, but when they fell none amongst the Saudis took up offers of Caliph. Also I came accross the possible link of the Ottoman Turks linked to Khazar families. Their later behaviour in administration, marriage, war, conscription was very odd that wasn't seen amongst other muslim regions.

You also mentioned "Lost Tribes of Israel", according to at least one Israeli scholar, they are here:

Also on the point of Dhul Qarnayn, the Gates of Alexander according to some was not built by him:
Of course one might say that Alexander was described as two horned but his character is nothing like what was mentioned in the Quran. His mention in Jewish talmud in my opinion forces a engineered view of history.

In the video, Imran Hosein mentioned two competing sides each side presenting a formal allegiance of muslims, christans, and jews. But one side is the fake occult one.

Imran Hosein has been telling his listeners that the Hadith of allegiance with 'Rum' is today Russia and the Eastern orthodox church.

Will the cia and brit elements have control over Dugin and Hosein?

Or is the world just of Elois and Morlocks?

More needs to be said about Dugins links and Hoseins UN activity

Good work David keep it up thanks for exposing those illuminati shills. I knew that Imran Hosein was a shill, just knew it. Now I am more certain.

your link is claiming that imran hosein is actually a salafi. this is laughable. he might be off sometimes but i think this is too far fetched. he is anything but a salafi. i dont think he cares about russia either. he is trying to come in contact with eastern christians. he has enough reasons to do so. this was foretold in the prophecy. i am talking about the "alliance with the rum" hadith. furthermore, he is the only islamic scholar besides the scottish (racist) convert and his spanish disciple who talks about gold as money and the evils of paper/electronic money. at least the only one in the english speaking world. he is also right about gog and magog. he is also right about the interpretation of sura 5/51 and 52. and he is also right about the occult infested world without eschatology and dajjal.

another associate of his, dr. omar zaid is also the man who introduced me to your work through his webpage. he is very well versed in occult history and most of his conclusions are the same with yours. but his books are unreadable because of his non academic type of writing. trinity: the metamorphosis of myth, for example, was almost impossible to read without a dictionary, at least for a non native speaker. i dont think that he is a salafi or a part of conspiracy either. maybe he is working for the international dictionary conspiracy.

the un connection is sketchy, and also bugged me for a long time, but imran hosein is openly against the un, and he considers its signatory countries accepting it as the supreme authority committing shirk. he says that saudi arabia is the greatest backstabber maybe in the world history. he is nevermind, i think you might want to reconsider your position on imran hosein.

i mean no disrespect to dr. omar zaid. what i meant was that his language is heavy. it may be my deficiency. they are both great scholars.

anyone who watches this lecture can see this:

Sheikh Imran The Occult as explained by Islamic Eschatology (with Omar Zaid)

Isn't there something interesting in the behaviour of Moscowites and the recent incident of the gathering of 2000 migrants, when Aleksander would rather have a pan Asia Russia?

Lots of information.....would be great if we could make some kind of relationship diagram.

Thank you Hamad. I try to keep my articles as simple as possible, but these subjects are just not simple. What I've included here was what I thought was the bare minimum to get an idea of the subject, because it actually takes a lot more detail to truly understand the full picture.

This is a part of history that has been completely omited from mainstream interpretations. It would be as if WWII would have been removed from history books. It wouldn't be something we would be able to explain in a page or two to audiences who had never heard of the subject before.

The same goes with these subjects. Muslims in particular have become deplorably ignorant. It's not going to be possible for them to retrive their vast lost knowledge overnight.

But yours is a good idea to at least help readers more easily follow this tangle of information. I'll see if I can get some time to put some kind of diagram together. Thank you.


your footnotes sometimes confuse me. In this article, footnotes 18-21 refer to the Wikipedia article in French on Abder Rahman Illaysh al Kabir, I get that. But it is only relevant to footnote 18. Footnotes 19-21 which you write "ibid." referring back to 18 is not contained in the short biographical stub to which you refer them. What is the source for footnotes 19-21... because it isn't the link in footnote 18!

Sorry about that. I corrected the link. Footnote 19 should be Joseph Brewda, "Palmerston launches Young Turks to permanently control Middle East,Schiller Institute/ICLC Conference, February 1994.

It's a fascinating article. I recommend it. And great to see someone reading the finer details. Thanks!

Reading all this, it seems to me the events of history have been shaped by a bunch of superstitious charlatans, because that's how I generally look at most of this 'occultism'. Just read about the fraudulent bogus manifestations Helena Blavatsky produced during her lifetime and she is supposed to be one of the most influental occultists of the modern times. These people are nothing more than power-hungry liars living a life of deception and polluting the minds of other people with this nonsense. Unfortunately the ruling class and the occult mumbo jumbo always seem to go hand in hand. What we need is more people with a healthy skeptical mindset in positions of power.

Hi David, have you a source that Otto von Bismarck was a freemason?
I can´t find anything to that issue.
