Anton Long: A Short Chronology of His Life

David Myatt c. 1989

Editorial Note (by Raffy, Nov 16, 08): After considering a polite request to remove the following article, I decided to keep it, pointing out that it is filed in the Categories Disinformation, and Allegations, and that there is already a suitable Disclaimer at the beginning of the article.

Update, Jan 30, 2009: Anton Long Chronology (pdf)

^^^

Introduction and Disclaimer:

This is the latest, updated, version (1.15a, January 120yf) and supersedes all previous versions.

I have pieced this Chronology together from a variety of sources, including some unpublished ones, some Internet items, and some articles published in various printed magazines, newspapers, and books. I have also, on occasion, used information supplied by various contacts of mine who are familiar with the life and works of both David Myatt and Anton Long.

This unofficial Chronology is based on the assumption that Anton Long is a pseudonym of David Myatt.

Thus, it is an amalgam of the assumed life of Anton Long – taken from the above mentioned variety of sources – and information about Myatt obtained from a similar variety of sources.

In the interests of fairness, I must point out that Myatt himself still continues, publicly and privately and consistently, to deny being Anton Long, and publicly and privately denies any invovlement with the ONA, and affirms his continuing commitment to Islam.

All errors, mistakes, omissions, and the unintentional reproduction of disinformation, in this Chronology, are entirely my fault.

Anton Long: A Short Chronology of His Life

Born 1950

1950-c.1967: Africa and Far East

c.1965-66:

^ Begins study of Martial Art, based on Taoism, in Singapore
^ Initiated into pleasures of erotica in Singapore brothel

1967: Arrives in England to complete schooling

Notable events: 1967- 1968

^ Leaves home (his father returns to live and work in Africa) – working during School holidays at a variety of jobs, including fruit picking, a farm, and a local factory. His father gives him a generous monthly allowance
^ Joins small traditional coven in the Fenlands of East Anglia
^ Begins study of National Socialism following reading about Major General Otto Ernst Remer
^ Joins Colin Jordan’s newly formed neo-nazi British Movement
^ Visits London in search of Occult groups and makes contact with small group following G*D* and Crowleyian magick, which he soon rejects as “wishy-washy arty-farty mumbo-jumbo”
^ Regularly attends meetings and rallies and demonstrations by BM, and newly formed NF, and gets involved with many fights
^ Joins small Left Hand Path group in London, and meets lady who runs a well-kept and high-class brothel: Quod duo Concubinatus genera sint, as he was to later, mockingly, write.

All this activity and seeking has a deleterious effect on his school studies, and he seriously considers quitting studying for his “A” levels and moving to live and work in London

1969 – 71

^ Seeking Promethean challenges, he becomes, for around nine months, a cat-burglar, and targets premises in London, expressing delight in the risks and the physical challenges, especially when access is through entries such as upper floor windows and roofs. He tests each “mark” personally – in terms of their individual character – before deciding if their premises, domestic or business (or both, but often just business and commercial premises), merit his attention, and later uses the experience gained to refine the ONA’s guidelines for the testing of opfers.

^ Leaves School to enter University, where he studies Physics

^ 1971: Becomes disenchanted with University, and spends more time traveling around the country attending political meetings, rallies and demonstrations, as well as working with a small Left Hand Path group, based in Yorkshire, called The Temple of the Sun, and visiting and staying with his lady friend, the brothel owner, in London where he occasionally helps out with running the business

On several occasions, he acts as Colin Jordan’s bodyguard at BM meetings and rallies.

He meets, via a contact in a Manchester Left Hand Path group, the Lady Master, of a traditional Sinister group, whose daughter initiates him into their reclusive sinister ways, and he spends many weeks staying with them, studying, and recording, their aural traditions after which his new Lady Master and her daughter emigrate to Australia, leaving him in charge of their very small Left Hand Path group, numbering less than thirteen people, to which group he gives the name Order of Nine Angles. The young lady who initiates him subsequently (and in Australia) gives birth to Myatt’s daughter, whom Myatt only meets decades later. She and her mother have stipulated that Myatt should have no contact with them, nor try to find them, unless they contact him, a stipulation which he, honorably, honors.

1971-1974: Leeds and the NDFM

^ 1971: Finally leaves University after meeting and becoming friends with Eddy Morrison at several neo-nazi rallies and meetings in Leeds, and moves, early in 1972, to live in Leeds, where he is active on behalf of BM and other neo-nazi groups, and where, in the following months – after yet another violent skirmish – he is arrested for his part in a “Paki-bashing” incident involving a gang of skinheads, for which he is subsequently sent to Prison, having been identified as the leader of that gang.
^ 1973: On release from prison he decides to form, with Eddy Morrison, his own neo-nazi group, the NDFM (National Democratic Freedom Movement), with Morrison as leader and himself in charge of propaganda.

Also forms a small criminal gang to “re-distribute some of the wealth stolen by big capitalist firms”, believing that these are “victimless crimes”. He is to be arrested, early in 1974, for his part in these crimes, after an investigation and raids by the Yorkshire Regional Crime Squad (later to become part of the National Crime Squad, which dealt with “serious and organized crime”). Following his arrest, Myatt is charged with several crimes, held on remand in prison, and is subsequently found guilty, and given a suspended Prison sentence.

He is invited to join the underground neo-nazi group Column 88 (a part of NATO’s clandestine Gladio network, with links to MI5 and MI6), which he does, and regularly attends their training sessions, meetings and camps. C88 is led by a former Special Forces Army officer, and its main NATO given task was to conduct sabotage and assassinations in the event of a Soviet invasion.

In early 1974 Myatt gives his first interview to a newspaper journalist, who subsequently reneges on his promise to show Myatt a draft before it is published, and who publishes a sensationalist and untrue story about Myatt and Satanism which appears on the front-page of the local evening newspaper, complete with Myatt’s photograph. The sensationalist claims includes stories of animal sacrifice, and Myatt is interviewed by both the RSPCA, and the Police, about these stories, with both the RSPCA and the Police concluding that they are journalistic invention. The reporter subsequently becomes ill and dies, after a lingering illness, less than a year later. Anton Long was to later write that he never did and never would sacrifice any animals since there was an abundance of human dross suitable as opfers.

Myatt makes several visits to Northern Ireland, traveling on the overnight ferry from Liverpool to Belfast, describing these as “visits of a curious tourist”.

^ 1974: the ultra-violent NDFM year where Myatt regularly speaks at public meetings and rallies, smashes up an anti-Apartheid exhibition (twice), assaults an anti-fascist photographer, and gets arrested at least five times for violent offenses, including wading into a Trades Union march and destroying one of their banners. Speaks at Speakers Corner, Hyde Park, to a crowd of nearly a thousand, and at an outdoor rally on Leeds Town Hall steps, to a crowd of several hundred, which ends in a mass brawl, and with him being arrested again. A few months later he appears in Court, and is sent to Prison, again, for his part in “inciting and leading” the fighting during yet another mass brawl.

1975-1981: ONA Insight Roles

On his release from Prison, he grows a beard, and becomes – for several months – a “Gentleman of the Road” (a drifter or vagabond), then settles down to live alone in a caravan in a field in the Fenlands to begin codifying and extensively developing ONA teachings. He undertakes the physical tasks described in the aural traditions he has inherited, then the grade Ritual of Internal Adept, in the Highlands of Scotland (near Loch Ness), afterwards resuming his regular visits to his lady friend, and her girls, in London, who have moved to new premises.

He decides he must spend many years personally trying out – and the refining, from experience – various ONA techniques, including Insight Roles, and opts to enter the noviciate of a Nazarene monastery where he spends nearly two years, during which he continues his Occult studies.

Not long after he leaves the monastery, he moves to Shropshire, resumes his Occult writings, begins writing about National Socialism, and meets the women whom he marries some months later. He successfully undertakes another Insight Role and completes all the new physical challenges he has developed, for External Adept, and described in Complete Guide To The Seven-Fold Sinister Way – having considered the ones he has inherited, and already undertaken, as “just too easy”.

Begins work as a gardener at a country house in Shropshire, and occasionally travels overseas, while continuing his association with Column 88, attending their clandestine meetings and training sessions.


1982-1988:

Settled, in Shropshire, he begins writing in earnest about National Socialism, and publishes Vindex: The Destiny of The West and other works of his fourteen volume National-Socialist Series. Begins translating Greek literature, and publishes his translations of Sappho and Sophocles. Regularly writes for a variety of NS and nationalist publications (under his own name and using a variety of ‘nyms) including for John Tyndall’s Spearhead magazine. Privately teaches a few individuals Martial Arts, and completes The Deofel Quartet, and his voluminous ONA works, which he begins to distribute via Thormynd Press and other outlets. These ONA works include early editions of Naos, Hostia, and Black Book of Satan, Part 1

In the middle 80’s he is interviewed by the Police about the murder of a local woman (Hilda Murrell) who was an active supporter of nuclear disarmament, and is also interviewed by Jenny Rathbone, of ITV’s World in Action, about the affair (although his comments were never broadcast), suspicions having been raised in some quarters as to whether Myatt was doing some “dirty work” for MI5. Someone – who was also suspected of “dirty tricks” for MI5, knew someone who knew Myatt – committed suicide before he could be questioned about the murder, and the murder was to spawn various “conspiracy theories” although, decades later, the real murderer was found, charged and imprisoned.

A few years after this incident, Myatt divorces his wife (she goes off to live with a younger lady) and he disbands the few, and small, ceremonial ONA groups that exist and which he still leads, having returned to, and further developed, the more traditional way of individual Initiates working alone with perchance some guidance.

With Column 88 disbanded after its existence became public knowledge, he regularly travels the UK to recruit (at neo-nazi and nationalist meetings and events) members for his clandestine neo-nazi group, the Aryan Resistance Movement (later, Aryan Liberation Army) whose candidates he tests by methods deriving from the ONA, but finds only a few suitable individuals.

1989-1993:

Still living in Shropshire, he marries again, and travels many times to Egypt and other parts of Africa (where he again visits his father’s grave which lies somewhere “between the Bangweulu swamp and the Lulua river”). He publishes further NS writings, more ONA material, and a translation of The Agamemnon by Aeschylus, and – following the untimely death of his second wife from cancer – he begins a course in Arabic at a British University only to leave after a short while to cycle through the Sahara Desert (from Cairo to El-Kharga oasis via Farafra), returning to move to live near the Herefordshire-Worcestershire border and work on a farm.

He then becomes involved with Combat 18, a group started not by Myatt himself but by Charlie Sargent, and his brother, Steve.


1994-1999: Combat 18 and The London Nail Bombings

During these years, he returns again to being publicly active on behalf of National Socialism, attending meetings and events organized by C18 and other neo-nazi groups, and again speaking in public. Several articles about him appear in the anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, and in other magazines, and Liberty Bell, in America, publish most of his Thormynd National-Socialist Series of NS essays. A booklet, attributed to Myatt, announcing the formation of a leaderless resistance racist group, “The White Wolves”, is distributed, containing practical advice on making home-made bombs. Myatt issues a bi-monthly NS publication, The National-Socialist, in support of C18. He also marries for the third time, to live (after a honeymoon in The Maldives) in what one Midlands newspaper subsequently reported (complete with photograph) as a “luxury detached four-bedroomed house” in a small village near the town of Malvern.

Not long after settling there, Myatt travels to Australia, having received an unexpected invitation from the lady who initiated him into what was to become the ONA to attend the funeral of her mother, and Myatt there meets his daughter for the first time, who is a married woman with children of her own.

Myatt continues to clandestinely recruit for his covert Aryan Resistance Movement (ARM), his terrorist manual A Practical Guide to Aryan Revolution – described as a “detailed step-by-step guide for terrorist insurrection” – is put on the Internet for the first-time by someone in Canada, and there are rumors of Myatt receiving financial support from a former member of Hitler’s Waffen SS.

He makes further visits to Northern Ireland, flying from Manchester Airport to ‘Derry, describing these visits as “coastal and hill walks; enjoying the solitude and scenery.”

During 1997, C18 splits into two factions, the disloyal faction being led by someone called Browning who was accused by Charlie and others of stealing C18 funds, and Charlie Sargent is arrested for the murder of a Browning supporter. Myatt, remaining loyal to Charlie, forms and leads The National-Socialist Movement, after getting Colin Jordan’s permission to use that name, and all the members of C18 loyal to Charlie join this group, which includes several serving soldiers of the British Army. Myatt appears at Charlie’s trial to give him public support and twice publicly challenges Browning to a duel with deadly weapons but Browning fails to accept these challenges to a private duel. A photograph of Myatt with a woman (a C18 member) – outside the Court at Chelmsford – appears in Searchlight together with a description of the continuing feud between the two C18 factions.

Myatt is interviewed at an Inn in Craven Arms, Shropshire, by Nick Lowles of Searchlight, who – fearful of Myatt’s reputation as man of violence who “always carries a weapon” – brings along a “minder” and declines Myatt’s suggestion to meet elsewhere, fearing an ambush. Unknown to Lowles, several supporters of Myatt are already present in the Inn. Lowles tries to get Myatt to admit to being Anton Long, mentioning a PO Box in Hereford which he claims is “proof”, but Myatt politely replies that he was, for a short while only, merely doing a favor for a long-standing friend whose views he did not share. Lowles eventually gets angry – shouting at Myatt: “Why don’t you just admit it!” – but Myatt remains calm and polite and repeats his denial. Myatt was later to write that he had mentioned this friend several times before, including to Professor Jeffrey Kaplan (see footnote #51 of Kaplan’s book Nation and Race). Myatt was to later publicly challenge Lowles to a duel with deadly weapons for spreading lies and making malicious allegations about him, a challenge which Lowles did not accept, leading Myatt to publicly call him “a dishonourable lying coward”.

In the early months of 1998, a squad of detectives from Scotland Yard’s SO12 unit conduct a Dawn raid on Myatt’s home and arrest him. His house is searched by seven Police officers for over seven hours, and computers, literature and other items are seized, while Myatt is taken away for questioning. (Myatt is formally arrested and cautioned by DC Mark Whalley, of S012, Scotland Yard.) Myatt is later released on bail, while the Police continue what is to be a three year long investigation into charges relating to incitement to murder, conspiracy to murder, and incitement to racial hatred, with this investigation involving Interpol, the FBI, MI6, and the Canadian Police. Myatt is again the subject of an article in Searchlight, who post a photograph of him on their front cover, with the heading The Most Evil Nazi in Britain. It later transpires that Nick Lowles and Gerry Gable, of Searchlight, and Michael Whine, of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, are the people responsible for putting pressure on Scotland Yard to arrest Myatt, having made an official complaint against him and his neo-nazi activities.

Some months after Charlie Sargent is sent to prison for murder, Myatt resigns as leader of the NSM, to concentrate on his own Reichsfolk and ARM organizations. Then, quietly, with no announcement either public or private, in September of 1998 Myatt converts to Islam at a Mosque in the Midlands.

In 1999 David Copeland – a member of Myatt’s NSM – begins his campaign to start a racial war by exploding three nail-bombs in various areas of London. Three people are killed, and over a hundred are injured, many seriously. Copeland is arrested soon after the last bomb explodes, and before he could detonate more bombs.

Prior to Copeland’s trial, Myatt is questioned by Police officers from Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorism branch about Copeland, but denies any connection, and he is also confronted by a reporter from the BBC’s Panorama program who asks him the same question.

Following Copeland’s trial and conviction, a year later, the BBC Panorama program about Copeland is broadcast (with Myatt’s voice altered by BBC special effects at the suggestion of Nick Lowles), accusing Myatt of being Copeland’s mentor, and there are subsequently many other Media reports about Myatt and Copeland, with journalists arriving at Myatt’s home and place of work (a farm) in an effort to interview him. Myatt declines to answer any of their questions, and instead issues a public statement in which he stated: “I personally regret nothing. There is nothing to apologize for; nothing to plead or feel guilty about…”


Every six months or so (and until 2001), the Police continue to formally interrogate Myatt (mostly at Charing Cross Police Station, in London, but on one occasion at Oxford Police Station) regarding Copeland, A Practical Guide to Aryan Revolution, and other matters relating to the charges still pending against him.


2000-2008:

Myatt continues – until the end of 2000 – to issue editions of his The National-Socialist newsletter, as he continues to write about National Socialism, and lead Reichsfolk. At the beginning of 2001, the Police inform Myatt that they have dropped all charges against him, and return his computers and other belongings.

In the Summer of 2000, Myatt, according to one source, travels to Iran, from whence he crosses over to Iraq. He begins to write about Islam and in particular articles about and praising Osama bin Laden and the Taliban. In the Summer of 2001, Myatt leaves his wife, citing “irreconcilable differences” mostly to do with his Islam, sells the house, and goes to briefly stay with CB (and his female partner) on a farm in Shropshire for a few months, before becoming, for some months, a “Gentleman of the Road” in the fells of Cumbria.

He then settles in a town in the north of England, together with a new girlfriend, producing more writings about both Islam and what he calls The Numinous Way. After around six months, he moves again to begin work on a rural farm, visiting Egypt several times, while continuing to produce more polemical Islamist writings and continuing to try and get neo-nazis to cooperate with radical Muslims in order to fight “the tyrannical New World Order, the dishonourable profane Zionist led Crusade alliance…” and, of this cooperation, Professor George Michael was later to write that Myatt has “arguably done more than any other theorist to develop a synthesis of the extreme right and Islam.”

Between 2003 and 2006 Myatt concentrates on writing about, and being involved with, Islam, earning a reputation as a radical Islamist, a supporter of both “suicide attacks”, and of Osama bin Laden. One of his articles justifying suicide attacks is, for several years, on the Izz al-Din al-Qassam (the military wing) section of the Hamas website whose members have killed hundreds of Jews in such attacks. Myatt, in many essays and on Internet forums, in various interviews and discussions, and using his Muslim names including Abdul Aziz, defends both the 9/11 and the London 7/7 attacks.

In 2005, he is mentioned at a NATO conference On Terrorism and Communications, in Slovakia, where it is stated that he has called upon “all enemies of the Zionists to embrace the Jihad, the ‘true martial religion’ which will most effectively fight against the Jews and the Americans.”

In 2006, he takes part in an “on-line” dialog, on a well-known and respected Islamic website, answering questions from Muslims world-wide. He is the subject of a full-page article (complete with color photograph) in The Times, of London, newspaper – under the topic Muslim Extremists in Britain – and is subsequently asked by several other newspapers for interviews, and invited to appear on an Arabic television station to discuss his support for bin Laden, all of which offers he declines.

Also in 2006, Myatt – as Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt – is mentioned at the grandly named NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Hypermedia Seduction for Terrorist Recruiting, held at Eilat, in “Israel”.

Recent Islamist articles of his include essays such as In Reply to Sheikh Salman b. Fahd al-Oadah (where he again defends bin Laden), The Revival of Aql, and The Aims of Al-Qaeda which is translated into many languages, including Italian.

Despite his involvement with Islam, rumors persist concerning Myatt continuing to be involved with the ONA, and continuing to develop his Numinous Way philosophy, and, between 2006 and 2008 dozens of new and revised articles about The Numinous Way are distributed. In early 2009 The Numinous Way Foundation issues a compilation of these revised and new articles. In the late Fall of 2008 – as in some previous years – rumors began circulating that Myatt had abandoned Islam in favor of his The Numinous Way, but Myatt himself denies this, claiming he is still a Muslim, and continues to write and publish Islamist articles, such as The Zionist Attacks on Gaza, dated 8 Muharram 1430 (i.e. January 2009).

Myatt, The ONA, and Mysticism

Introduction

The following item by me is really just cobbled together from some e-mail correspondence I’ve had with several people, recently, about David Myatt, his poetry, and his Numinous Way, and if, and how, this stuff is related to the ONA and “Anton Long’s” sinister aims. I’ve naturally amended my original e-mail text in places, added some bits, and turned some of the quoted e-mail text, of others, into questions.

In the interests of fairness, I must point out that it is my belief that Anton Long is a pseudonym of Myatt’s. Therefore, I have used this belief of mine – this assumption – in order to arrive at certain conclusions regarding Myatt’s life and works.

For his part, Myatt publicly affirms his continuing commitment to Islam; still continues, publicly and privately and consistently, to deny being Anton Long; denies any involvement with the ONA, and denies authorship of the few new, dated and undated, articles, about The Numinous Way, which have appeared on the internet in the past two or three years and which, sometimes, have been attributed to him or have had his name added to them.

———

Myatt, Anton Long, The ONA, and The Mysticism of The Numinous Way

Reading Myatt’s latest material about The Numinous Way, his poetry and “private letters”, it appears he’s left behind both Islam and – if it’s accepted he’s “Anton Long” – the ONA itself.

Perhaps it would be better to say: material attributed to him. But, that said, my personal view – and that of some other people I know, who are mostly associated with the Order of Nine Agles – is that he’s neither publicly left behind his role as a radical Islamist, inciting Jihad, nor left behind the ONA, or maybe I should say, my assumption is that he’s not personally abandoned, nor personally gone beyond, the ONA.

Certainly, there appeared, for a short while and in public, updated versions of Part 3 of his Autobiographical Notes, attributed to him, as well as updated material by Julie Wright, which did appear to confirm that he’s finally abandoned Islam, and returned to his own Numinous Way philosophy. But these were all soon removed, to be replaced with the “older” versions which affirmed his continuing commitment to Islam. This indicates, to me, that he wants to maintain – in public at least – his image as a radical Muslim, and leaves open the question as to whether or not he personally has abandoned belief in Islam, assuming, that is, he ever did have any real, personal, belief in Islam, and wasn’t just using it for some sinister purpose as many people, myself included, believed and believe.

There is also the fact that Myatt has continued to write Islamist articles – at least five dated this year, including The Aims of Al-Qaeda (dated only a few months ago) and Honour is From Allah Alone (dated just last month). He has also contributed, in the past six months, to several topics on the English IslamicAwakening internet forum. All his Islamist websites are still currently on-line as well, containing as they do his “conversion” writings, such as From Neo-Nazi to Muslim.

In addition, the new material, distributed by the ONA in the past three years, and attributed to Anton Long, would certainly seem to indicate that he hasn’t abandoned the ONA either. This new material includes an interview with AL (Toward The Dark Formless Acausal) dated 119 Year of Fayen, several new Occult short stories, and may new ONA MSS, such as The Mythos of the Dark Gods: Beings of Acausal Darkness, and The Five-Dimensional Magick of the Seventh Way. In fact, I think it’s true to say that more new ONA material has been circulated in the past three years than in the previous five years, with a lot of this new material being very recent, dating from this year (this is especially true of the Occult stories, such as Herewith, The Darkness).

All of which leaves us with “the usual questions” – such as what Myatt’s own, personal, goals and beliefs are; and how is it that someone can have so many public personae and produce so many varied, and apparently contradictory, works. For do not his Islamic writings and his public Muslim persona contradict the writings on The Numinous by, or attributed to, him? Does the ONA not contradict both Islam and this Numinous Way which he’s developed?

Or is there just a simple answer, which is easy to find if we accept that his ulterior motives, his aims, have never changed over the past four decades of what has been called his Promethean quest, and that everything he has done and is doing, every persona we associate with him, from fanatical nazi, to radical Islamist, to Nature loving mystic, to satanic Grand Master, is somehow connected – maybe in ways we might not understand nor appreciate – with those motives and aims?

This is the answer that I, and quite a few other people interested in Myatt and all his works, accept. It seems obvious, then, that his ulterior motives, and his aims, are sinister ones, connected with the ONA, and are to disrupt, in any way he can, what he calls “the Magian New World Order”; to produce and provoke and inspire change in people, and in society; with this disruption and this change being preludes to, and the foundation of, his vision of Homo Galactica and of a Dark Imperium whose basis is a new breed of warrior like individuals whose way of life is founded on personal honor.

It’s interesting – and important – that one of newer ONA MSS, written by Anton Long and dated this year, is a short incisive essay entitled, simply, Dark Imperium, which I will quote here, in full, as it kind of “gives the game away”.

<!–begin quote–>
One of the exoteric – practical and outward – aims of The Order of Nine Angles is to aid the creation of a Dark Imperium. This Dark Imperium is and will be a manifestation, a practical implementation, of The Sinister, of The Sinister Dialectic, where Sinister Adepts (and, of course, Sinister Masters and Lady Masters) guide, control and manipulate – on a large scale – ordinary (non-Initiated) mortals, and thus effect sinister changes in a particular society, or in many societies.

It is one of the aims of the person named by sinister esoteric tradition as Vindex to create the foundations for this Dark Imperium, and, in practical terms, the Dark Imperium will be a large, organized – most probably militaristic – society whose ideals are those of excellence and of the noble honourable warrior and warrioress, and whose ethos will be essentially pagan. In addition, this Dark Imperium will function on the basis of the warrior leadership-principle and not upon any form of democracy, just as – and importantly – the basis for the law, for the justice, of the new societies of this Imperium will be personal honour (the law of the warrior), and not the abstract, dis-honourable, law that has come to dominate all Western societies, to the detriment of our evolution as a species.

Given this distinctive practical nature of the Dark Imperium, it will thus be ideologically, violently, and of necessity, opposed to the current materialistic, “politically-correct”, democratic, plebeian, status quo, in the West, and elsewhere, and – once established – one of the first practical aims of this new Imperium will be to extend, if necessary by force of arms and conquest, its Law of the Warrior to other societies, creating in time a new world-wide Empire. It is this new world Empire which will efficiently begin the practical colonization of Space, first in our own Solar System, and then among the stars. It will do this practical exploration and colonization of Space both as duty and as a necessity, since such practical exploration and colonization is an integral part of its fundamental, irrevocable, pagan and warrior ethos.

Furthermore, such a Dark Imperium will, outwardly, not be directly associated with “the Satanic” or with “Satanists”, although, under the guidance, the leadership, of Vindex and his (or her) successors, this warrior society will be aiding the Sinister Dialectic and thus achieving long-term Sinister, Satanic, goals.

Of course, Sinister Adepts – and some sagacious non-Initiates – will understand that such a Dark Imperium is itself only a stage; only one part of an Aeonic process; and that, as such, it does not represent the essence, nor the ultimate aims, of the ONA itself, although it is only to be expected that the majority among the plebeius will fail to appreciate the difference.

In essence, the Dark Imperium is a stage toward the emergence of – a means to create – that new human species which Sinister Adepts have named, variously, as Homo Sol, Homo Galactica and Homo Galacticus: the Promethean species whose homes, whose dwellings, whose life, will be among the star-systems of our Galaxy, and then among the star-systems of other Galaxies in the causal Cosmos.
<– end quote–!>

Of course Myatt – in his Muslim persona and when asked – publicly affirms his continuing commitment to Islam; still continues, publicly and privately and consistently, to deny being Anton Long; denies any involvement with the ONA, and denies authorship of the few new, dated and undated, articles, about The Numinous Way, which have appeared on the internet in the past two or three years and which, sometimes, have been attributed to him or have had his name added to them.

Is Myatt still imbued with the task of [ONA] Master?

I think it’s obvious (to perceptive individuals outside the ONA) that he’s still leading this “Dark Order” – given his recent works as “Anton Long”; the new stories, for instance; the newer esoteric MSS in the past two years (of which there are dozens) – and it’s naturally well known among those individuals who are “of the ONA”. In fact, I think he’s probably done more stuff (including written material) for the ONA these past two years than he has in his role as Islamist Jihadist, and in his self created role of “Nature mystic”, evident in his recent letters, poems and Numinous Way stuff.

Which I suppose leads us on to the value, and purpose, in esoteric terms, of this “mystical” stuff – his Jihadist stuff obviously being useful in achieving some sinister goals.

My assumption, my personal view, and that of several other people I know, is that he crafted his Numinous Way for a specific very long term purpose, which is of providing a complete pagan “way” to enable some people to live beyond and independent of the current “System” (the New World Order and the like with its Magian values). That is, to create new communities and from them, over causal time, new dynamic and warrior tribes, for the ethic of personal honor, and the law of honor, are the ethical foundations of this new “way” of his. His development of this Way was – somewhat fortuitously – helped by his own recent personal experiences, of bereavement and the like, and this enabled him to create another persona for himself, or perhaps more accurately to more fully develop another aspect of himself (which was already there and evident in his poetry), which persona – that of a Nature loving mystic – some individuals can identify with and which then changes, inspires, them and leads them to do stuff and maybe develop this pagan way further and into new directions.

Thus, it seems obvious that he’s never – despite outward appearances – changed his inner goals or his “loyalty” to his own sinister path. He’s just somehow managed to synthesize the array of his amazingly diverse experiences in an alchemical way (that is, in a magickal way) to aid those goals and that path, although naturally most people don’t see this, and certainly wouldn’t understand it even if they did see it.

So, I think this new mystical stuff is part of the “overall package” – of setting certain things in motion, if you like, which are or which will become useful to “us” (even though it “appears” to be of “light” and not of “the dark”) and which will certainly aid the creation of a New Aeon as well as aid the fight against the Old, Magian, Order.

Anton Long: A Short Chronology of His Life


Chi sono i nuovi fascisti?

A Promethean Quest

Il 7 febbraio del 1967 viene fondato il “Fronte Nazionale”, partito dell’estrema destra britannica. Nello stesso anno, il diciassettenne David Myatt sbarca a Londra, dopo aver vissuto la sua giovinezza prima in Tanzania e poi in Estremo Oriente, seguendo il padre che lavorava nell’amministrazione coloniale inglese. Il giovane Myatt è uno sfegatato ammiratore di Hitler e nei vent’anni successivi la sua fede neonazista crescerà insieme al consenso che il Fronte Nazionale acquista in Inghilterra. Nel 1974, il Fronte poteva contare su almeno ventimila aderenti. Il salto di qualità Myatt lo compie quando crea il gruppo Combat 18 (C18), braccio armato dell’organizzazione Blood & Honour. Il numero ‘18’ si riferisce alla prima e all’ottava lettera dell’alfabeto, le iniziali di Adolf Hitler.

Nei primi anni Novanta, C18 diventa il servizio d’ordine del Fronte. Nel 1997, Myatt scrive un pamphleet intitolato “Guida pratica alla rivoluzione ariana”, in cui descrive, passo dopo passo, come far scoppiare una guerra etnica per liberare il suolo patrio dalla malefica presenza di africani, asiatici e giudei. Le sue idee fanatiche sono esattamente quello di cui vanno in cerca personaggi schizofrenici e paranoici come David Copeland, un ventenne che aveva scelto di militare nel Movimento nazional-socialista inglese (un’altra delle creature di Myatt). Nell’aprile del ’99, per due settimane, Copeland semina il panico nelle strade di Londra. Prima una bomba in un supermarket di Brixton, una zona popolata in gran parte di neri. Poi un secondo ordigno a Brick Lane, nell’east end, quartiere a prevalenza asiatico con una forte presenza di immigrati bengalesi. Infine il botto all’Admiral Duncan Pub di Soho’s, il cuore della comunità omosessuale londinese. Le bombe sono infarcite di chiodi, fanno tre morti e un centinaio di feriti.

David Myatt non ha l’aspetto di un neonazista classico, niente testa rasata, Doc Marten’s e bomber ultimo modello. Sembra piuttosto un eccentrico gentleman di campagna, con la lunga barba rossiccia e il completo di tweed. Ha un quoziente intellettivo di tutto rispetto e una passione altrettanto sconfinata per le religioni, che lo spinge a studiare il taoismo e a frequentare monasteri buddisti e cristiani. Traduce Omero, Sofocle e i lirici greci, scrive poesie e racconti di fantascienza. La sua ricerca faustiana lo conduce ai limiti dell’occultismo e sconfina nel satanismo. Parla di una “Via luminosa della cultura folk”, una forma di paganesimo basata sul ritorno al mondo rurale, sul rispetto dell’ordine naturale, la lealtà ai valori familiari, il volk e la libertà individuale. Sembra una riedizione dell’herderismo più reazionario, in cui la parola ‘comunità’ acquista esclusivamente un valore razziale e ostile a ogni forma di mescolanza.

Nel 1998, la svolta. Myatt si converte all’Islam e prende il nome di Abdul Aziz. Dopo l’11 Settembre, i suoi eroi diventano Osama Bin Laden e i Taliban, il suo indirizzo di posta elettronica sheikh@al-quaeda.com. In fondo cosa c’è di meglio dell’islamismo per uno che definisce l’Olocausto “una menzogna”?

Ma perché un neonazista che in strada pestava negri e pakistani è finito in moschea? Facile, si è reso conto che una rinascita dell’estrema destra in Europa è inverosimile mentre la creazione di un superstato musulmano sarebbe una buona carta da giocare contro il sionismo e l’Occidente: “Non ci sarà né rivolta, né rivoluzione, in nessun paese occidentale, da parte di nazionalisti o nazionalsocialisti, perché difettano del desiderio, della motivazione e dell’ethos per farlo, perché capiscono di non avere il sostegno della maggioranza della propria gente”. L’esortazione per i camerati è una soltanto, convertirsi, “accettare la superiorità dell’Islam su tutte le strade indicate dall’Occidente”. Il Jihad è un dovere, un’alternativa al “disonore, l’arroganza e il materialismo” del Vecchio continente. “Per l’Occidente nulla è sacro, salvo, forse, il sionismo, le chiacchiere sull’Olocausto e l’idolatria per la democrazia”.

Myatt si convince che la guerra dichiarata dall’Islam sarà lunga decenni e che la Gran Bretagna potrebbe ritrovare nel Corano i valori della sua antica casta guerriera. Sostiene che “tutte le bombe sono terribili o barbare” comprese quelle ideologiche che aveva messo a disposizione di Copeland, evidentemente. Nei siti internet dell’estremismo islamico, Aziz viene considerato un “esperto”, un “discepolo”, un “sant’uomo”. In un’intervista del 2003, lo sceicco Omar Bakri dichiara: “Sono convinto che Myatt può aiutare la causa islamica”.

Lo scrittore e giornalista canadese Mark Steyn è convinto che la saldatura tra fascismo e jihad è destinata ad avere grande successo in futuro. Abbracciando l’Islam, i fautori della ‘supremazia della razza bianca’ saranno attratti dalla parola “supremazia” più che dalla difesa del white power. “Il fondamentalismo islamico attirerà i violenti, gli squilibrati, gli antisemiti, in una infinita Notte di Valpurga dell’irrazionalità”. Nel saggio “America Alone”, Steyn avverte che i neoconvertiti alla Myatt non sono l’equivalente di Richard Gere con il buddismo e di Tom Cruise con Scientology: “Quando le città dell’Inghilterra, del Belgio e della Scandinavia saranno islamizzate, i loro abitati dovranno scegliere tra vivere come una minoranza ed entrare a far parte della maggioranza della popolazione. La maggior parte potrebbero optare per la seconda scelta”.

George Michael è un professore di scienze politiche all’Università della Virginia. Nel 2006 ha pubblicato un saggio, The Enemy of My Enemy: The Alarming Convergence of Militant Islam and the Estreme Right, in cui prova a fare un quadro della Nuova Alleanza che si sta scagliando contro l’Occidente. Dobbiamo risalire agli anni Settanta e Ottanta, quando si formò quel contraddittorio nucleo di organizzazioni che – dalla sinistra rivoluzionaria all’estrema destra – attaccavano gli Stati Uniti e le nazioni occidentali per aver invaso il Vietnam e aiutato Israele nella ‘repressione’ della causa palestinese. Chi è cresciuto in Italia nel ventennio in questione ricorderà la propaganda antisionista (leggi: antisemita) fatta da compagni e camerati nelle università; le manifestazioni, i volantini, le conferenze e i seminari, uguali a quelli che le quinte colonne dell’Occidente hanno promosso contro la liberazione dell’Afghanistan e dell’Iraq dopo l’11 Settembre.

Come dimenticare i nipotini delle Brigate Rosse – il Partito Comunista Combattente e i Nuclei Territoriali Anti-imperialisti, che salutarono il crollo delle Torri Gemelle come “un atto eroico di Al Quaeda contro l’imperialismo americano”? E Nadia Desdemona Lioce che invitava “le masse arabe e islamiche oppresse, espropriate ed umiliate” ad allearsi con il proletariato metropolitano, armandosi in un unico grande fronte intenazionale antimperialista in grado di scatenare una nuova offensiva contro i governi borghesi?

Un dittatore come Saddam Hussein veniva difeso non soltanto dai rottami più aggressivi dell’ideologia comunista, ma anche da spezzoni del movimento antiglobalizzazione, dai gruppi radicali impegnati nelle battaglie sul welfare, sull’ecologismo e i diritti umani (sic). Da un’estrema all’altra, i toni non cambiano di una virgola. Per Myatt, il Jihad è “la vera religione marziale”, meglio del Bushido e dell’antica Sparta. Secondo David Duke, il fondatore del Ku Klux Klan, gli evangelici che in America si sono schierati dalla parte di Israele hanno dimenticato gli “osceni” attacchi rivolti dal Talmud a Gesù Cristo: “Il Sacro Corano dell’Islam oggi difende Cristo e sua madre Maria dalle odiose calunnie del giudaismo”. Duke, naturalmente, è stato uno degli ospiti d’onore della Conferenza negazionista patrocinata dal governo iraniano nel 2006.

“Il nemico del mio nemico è mio amico”, un perfetto adagio delle mafie fasciste. Gloria ad Al Quaeda, all’Hezbollah, ad Hamas, ai Fratelli Musulmani, e a tutti quelli che possono colpire per davvero il nemico che ormai ‘noi’ siamo soltanto in grado di graffiare a parole. Myatt non è uno stupido e ha capito che inchinarsi verso la Mecca, almeno per lui, non significa rinnegare la svastica. In teoria, così come i razzisti di estrema destra e i segmenti del cristianismo più delinquente tendono a deridere e a escludere chi non è bianco e cristiano, allo stesso identico modo i fondamentalisti islamici se la prendono con i non-musulmani, gli ebrei e gli americani. Internet e la globalizzazione hanno favorito questa interazione che ha nell’antisemitismo il suo minimo comune denominatore.

Durante il Terzo Reich e la Seconda Guerra mondiale, i Fratelli Musulmani simpatizzarono per le Forze dell’Asse. Hitler in persona era in buoni rapporti con il gran muftì di Gerusalemme. Quest’ultimo diede il suo benestare all’inquadramento delle divisioni musulmano-bosniache nelle Waffen SS. Dopo Norimberga, un numero imprecisato di nazisti disoccupati cercarono rifugio in Medio Oriente, lavorando come consulenti militari ed esperti d’intelligence. Li troviamo all’ombra del governo egiziano di Nasser, per esempio i commandos di Otto Skorzeny, che insanguinarono la Striscia di Gaza a metà degli anni Cinquanta.

Uno dei discepoli di Goebbels, Johann von Leers, dopo aver preso il nome di Oman Amin von Leers, aiutò Nasser nella sua propaganda antioccidentale. Questa collaborazione sarebbe continuata fino alla fine degli anni Sessanta: l’ex SS belga Robert Courdroy e il neonazista Karl von Kyna vennero uccisi mentre combattevano a fianco delle milizie palestinesi.

Negli anni Novanta, la fine dell’Unione Sovietica ha favorito i nostalgici del nazismo che cercavano una ricollocazione storica e strategica, avendo perso il loro principale nemico, i comunisti. Ora c’era un altro avversario, il Moloch in cui convergevano la grande finanza globale, il cinema ‘giudeo’ e l’hard power americano. Myatt e i suoi sognano di costruire degli stati fondati sulla esclusività razziale e religiosa, un incubo che ritengono a portata di mano dopo l’11 Settembre.

Negli Stati Uniti, la National Alliance e la Nazione Ariana hanno solidarizzato con Bin Laden, sperando che la popolazione islamica americana si risvegli contro l’oppressore. Virtualmente tutti i terroristi vengono fuori dai ranghi dell’estremismo, anche se non tutti gli estremisti sono dei terroristi, ma l’estremismo politico serve spesso da incubatore per il futuro terrorismo. Sono i rischi della politica seguita dall’amministrazione Bush, che ha creduto di poter affrontare il terrorismo enfatizzando “l’eccezionalità delle istituzioni americane e la fede messianica nello loro applicabilità universale”.

In uno studio intitolato “Militant Islam Reaches to America”, pubblicato dal professor Daniel Pipes nel 2002, c’è scritto chiaramente che ad unire l’estremismo americano, occidentale e islamista, c’è lo stessa carica utopica radicale, il rifiuto della coesistenza, l’odio verso l’Occidente, la democrazia e il moderatismo. Per tutti questi motivi la storia di David Myatt non deve sorprenderci ma neppure lasciarci indifferenti.

Stalking Myatt

Stalking Myatt:
Tales of a Nazi Hacker (And More)

by Pointyhat

In addition to the recent spate of anonymous posts on Internet forums pretending to ask for information about “David Myatt and Islam“, there has been, for several years, other anonymous posts about Myatt, to Internet forums, with titles like “A Nazi Hacker”.

These other posts make the absurd claim that some neo-nazi (or some neo-nazi Satanist) is hacking into the computers of “vulnerable” and/or “disabled” people, and stealing personal information about them. Sometimes Myatt is directly named in these posts; sometimes not, although if he is not directly named then links are given to biased articles about or concerning Myatt, which articles usually make the usual unproven allegations about “involvement with Satanism” and so on. Occasionally, these anonymous posts claim that the writer “has contacted the Police” about the hacking, and that the Police don’t take him/her/it seriously. The posts have appeared on forums as diverse as those about Billy Brag, those to do with “Black politics”, and those to do with education such as the “Association of Jewish Sixth Formers”.

Occasionally, there have been responses to these anonymous posts, with some respondents taking the ludicrous – and always unsubstantiated – claims seriously, and with some realizing they are the posts of a troll, a stalker, or someone with an obsession, with personality problems or some kind of personality disorder.

The total lack of evidence given for the allegations made, directly or indirectly, against Myatt is one of the most obvious features of not only these anonymous posts, but also of the many journalistic articles about Myatt which have regularly appeared and which do regularly appear in newspapers, in periodicals, and on the Internet. More often than not, the allegations revolve around alleged involvement with Satanism, although quite why anyone these days would find such now rather common-place activities startling, heretical, outlandish, or mildly salacious or even interesting, is never explained. Which is why, I suppose, the new anonymous stalker is trying a new angle – of “a nazi hacking the computers of disabled people”. Shock; horror; gasp! Hold the front-page! Let’s make a new BBC Panorama special!

It seems likely that all these anonymous posts about “David Myatt and Islam”, and about a “Nazi hacker”, are by one and the same person, given the content, the style, the attempts at being clever, and their placement on varying, and world wide, forums. The content almost always includes links to the above mentioned biased Internet articles about Myatt.

It also seems likely that we can expect more such posts by the anonymous person, for this person obviously has a serious obsession with Myatt, and obviously has either some personality disorder or some psychological problem, or – like Myatt’s infamous Zionist stalker – is intent, because of his own religious and/or political views, on trying to somehow discredit Myatt by such anonymous posts.

Perhaps there is only one Myatt stalker out-there in cyber-land: the “original Myatt stalker” (®Trademark) – a.k.a the obsessive Zionist – who has now branched out, and is trying some new anti-Myatt angle. Perhaps there are now two stalkers, the original one, and this “new Myatt stalker” (®Trademark) who is addicted to posting stories about Myatt and who, obviously deluded, sees himself/herself/itself as rather clever by inventing stories about a Nazi hacker and by pretending to ask for information while repeating unproven allegations about Myatt.

Personally, my view is that there are now two Myatt stalkers. But perhaps some more will join this select and always anonymous group, and they will get together to widen the scope of their allegations. How’s about: “David Myatt is an alien from Outer Space”? Or: “Myatt is a vampire and regularly sucks the blood of his victims?” Too outré? OK, how’s about: “Myatt the secret MI5 agent”? Oh, sorry, that’s already been done. Well, then, how’s about: “Myatt the secret cat-burglar”? Or: “Myatt the drug-dealer”. Or even: “I was Myatt’s sex slave and the freaky fiend had a passion for three women in a bed…”

But what does seem clear from these regular anonymous posts which have been regularly occurring for at least seven years is that there are disturbed maladjusted people “out there” who take cowardly advantage of the Internet to anonymously spread their delusions, their fantasies, their prejudices, their unproven allegations – and the lies of others – about Myatt. Part of the human condition, I suppose. Potential opfer, anyone?


Myatt: 5GW Operative, MI5 Agent, Trickster Mage – Or Simply Muslim?

David Myatt: 5GW Operative, MI5 Agent, Trickster Mage – Or Simply Muslim?

For those that don’t know, 5GW is “fifth generation war” which is a modern development of guerrilla warfare in which socalled “superempowered individuals” – often using modern technology – go around creating chaos and doing “terrible terrorist deeds”. The prediction of some conspiracy theorists is that “we’ve seen nothing yet” and that some of these “superempowered individuals” will cause carnage on an unprecedented scale. Such individuals are prefigured in people like Timothy McVeigh.

A 5GW Operative is someone who does “spooky action at a distance” – who is acting on behalf of those “powers-behind-the-scenes” that like to use chaos, and especially socalled “terrorist attacks”, as a pretext for increased government control, increased surveillance, and government tyranny. That is, such an operative is a new version of the traditional “spook” – someone who works alone and is ruthless.

According to some conspiracy theorists, David Myatt is at the very least an MI5 agent, and possibly a 5GW Operative, who has spent decades supporting ultra-violent causes, and inciting hatred and conflict and terrorism. Here is a quote from a recent article about some 5GW Operatives:

“David Myatt wears many masks: he’s a leading neo-nazi philosopher, he’s a Satanic occultist, and he’s also a radical Islamic cleric. Sounds crazy and gets far stranger than that…” (The Language of Power – article mentioning Myatt on Skilluminati Research blog, dated April 23, 2008)

Thus, Myatt’s role – according to such theories – has been to create “terrorist scares” (so as to give the government the excuse to “crack down on extremism and terrorism”) and to recruit individuals to do dastardly things. Individuals like David Copeland, or – more recently perhaps – some of the many, many British Muslims who in the past four years have plotted to massacre hundreds, if not thousands, of people in Britain, and elsewhere, and all but a few of which have been caught before they could explode their bombs.

According to such theories, the ONA – for example – was part of a spooky clandestine plan to recruit and train ruthless individuals who would be directed to cause chaos, and undertake the odd murder, or assassination or two, or let off the occasional bomb, and to generally create “terrorist scares”.

According to such theories, Myatt’s role in Combat 18 – for example – was very simple:

There’s much suspicion, on the both the left and right, that Combat 18 “was created by Britain’s internal security service MI5 to discredit the BNP while acting as a honey trap, or sting operation, designed to attract the most violent neo-Nazis in Britain into a single organization, where they could be monitored more easily.” (Nine Angles of Separation – an article about Myatt on the Rigorous Intuition blog, dated August 18, 2005)

According to such theories, Myatt has been a government spook for most of his adult life, having been recruited while at University, and having been trained by Column 88, which was part of the UK arm of NATO’s secret Gladio Cold War organization, whose task was to conduct sabotage in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe. Even Myatt’s two terms of imprisonment for violence are easily explained away by the parameters of this spook theory: designed to give him credibility in the violent milieu of the racist Right.

There is a rather neat symmetry to this theory about Myatt. To quote from the Rigorous Intuition article again:

“Is Myatt an agent provocateur, a shit-disturber who can’t settle upon a radical philosophy, something more, or something less? It’s difficult to assess motive, but consider that he has been arrested numerous times for such things as writing and disseminating “practical terrorist guides” on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. These cases have always been dropped due to “lack of evidence.” Does he enjoy protection? The record is suggestive that he does. And if it appears so, then we should ask the next question: Why?

Myatt may seem to have flitted from one politico-religious philosophy to another, but there is a terrible thread of continuity and rigour through his life and writings that suggests he is much more than a disingenuous provocateur. Naziism and Islamicism have served, in turn, as modalities of disruption for what remains at core an occult working to sow general chaos and division – the necessary passage of “Helter Skelter” to break down the Old Order, before the founding of the New.

So again: whose interests are served by there being a David Myatt? Is he is own man – or men – or does he belong to someone else? Or is it something else – an intelligence service perhaps…”

But it’s surely all too easy to interpret past actions, and writings, according to a certain theory. A certain theory which is – Simple? Absolutely. Satisfying? – certainly; giving symmetry? – indeed. But it doesn’t seem convincing, to me, once one starts to question it; there are, perhaps, too many inconsistencies. Such as – Myatt’s time as a Christian monk. Such as – Myatt’s Nature-loving, often mystical, often sad poetry, which is certainly at odds with the image of a ruthless (if not sociopathic) agent. Such as – Myatt’s personal letters and wrings (especially in the last three years) which seem to reveal a somewhat sensitive man, and is certainly at odds with the hate-filled, psychotic, rabid Jew-hating individual he is often portrayed to be.

Yet the supporters of such a theory about Myatt might well point out (and some of them have) that such “inconsistencies” are deliberate creations (by a master Trickster – a Master Shrencher in ONA-speak), designed to throw us off the scent, as it were. Convenient? You bet – like most conspiracy theories, which can always explain away those most inconvenient facts which seem to contradict the cherished theory.

For myself, I think there are two more reasonable, more plausible, explanations for the strange peregrinations evident in Myatt’s strange life.

The first – accepted by people like Julie Wright, who has extensively studied Myatt’s life and who knows him personally – is that:

“Myatt has been steadfastly and loyally following the sinister, Occult, path he chose nearly four decades ago, and that his exploits, experiences and involvements, have been and are linked to this path in two ways. Firstly, and to use the terminology of the ONA, part of his own inner quest, that is, internal magick – a magick which creates a new individual, two stages of which are Adeptship and Master. Secondly, part of the sinister strategy of the ONA, that is, aeonic magick which aims to change, disrupt, society itself – “to presence the dark” – and create some kind of warrior society, Dark Imperium or Galactic Empire. To achieve his aims he has ruthlessly – that is, Satanically – used such things as National Socialism, paganism, terrorism and even Islam.” (David Myatt: A Sinister Life?)

In this scenario, even Myatt’s Islam is a role. That is, he assumed the role of radical Muslim to further his own Occultic sinister, Satanic, agenda.

The second explanation is that Myatt’s life-long quest has been a profoundly individual one, which has indeed taken him from one (apparent) extreme to another (apparent) extreme, and that’s it ‘s been for him a voyage of personal (and Promethean) discovery.

Thus, it’s all a question of Myatt’s intent – of whether he’s been deliberately, and for decades, pursuing some sort of “sinister (or even neo-nazi) strategy”, or whether he’s just been an individual traveler, going his own way in his own time, learning from the experiences, and possibly taking a few of us to “where no one has gone before”.

There is, however, a third explanation – which I personally tend to favor – and this explanation is rather a blend of the previous two explanations. In this third scenario, Myatt started out with perhaps a sinister (and/or a neo-nazi) intent, but has in recent years – due to, as he says in many personal writings, pathei mathos – moved far away from this, as seems evident, for example, in his many (now unacknowledged) recent writings about The Numinous Way, which writings extol the virtue of compassion, personal love, and empathy. Thus, in the process, he has gone beyond National Socialism, beyond the Occult as manifest in the ONA, and beyond Islam, to create his own unique philosophy, which is evident in his recent poems, his recent personal letters and his most recent writings about The Numinous Way, which recent writings seems to have taken him beyond even “the abstraction of the folk” (refer to Note 1 below) to something seemingly entirely new, rather mystical and certainly ethical.

At this point, some comment should certainly be made about the many personal writings, and letters, and articles (about The Numinous Way) which have been circulating these past three years and which have been attributed to – but are publicly unacknowledged by – Myatt. My own, personal, view of this matter is that these items represent where Myatt is now, in his personal exploration; that is, they reflect his own thinking, his personal philosophy, his own beliefs, if you will, resulting from his decades-long and varied quest. However, he – at least for the moment – continues to project, to have, a rather different public image, which is that of still being Muslim. Why? In my view for two reasons. The first reason is because he still feels honorably bound by “the oath of loyalty” he gave on becoming Muslim, and the second is that he still regards radical Islam as the most effective practical way to fight “the dishonor of the New World Order” and so does not wish to publicly criticize it in any way.

Of course, I’m making assumptions here, and it’s only fair to give Myatt’s public comments on such matters, which are that he’s still a committed Muslim, and that (1) he did continue to develop The Numinous Way, for a while as a Muslim, but “as a Muslim, I regard my earlier philosophy, which I first called “Folk Culture” and then The Numinous Way, as kufr – a concealment of the reality, the truth, of Tawheed, and thus as a manifestation of Jahiliyyah” and (2) that some dates on some articles of his have been altered or added by “various people”; and there are some forgeries in circulation.

But – despite all this, despite all my ramblings, above – I’m sure most people will prefer the simplicity of either the conspiracy theory about Myatt, or the “sinister intent”/satanist theory about him, propounded by the likes of Julie Wright, and Searchlight. For, let’s face it, such theories – however fanciful or simplistic – are just so much more interesting and entertaining.

David Myatt and Islam

David Myatt and Islam: A Plethora of Posts From a Stalker

Introduction

The following item about Myatt – under various titles including David Myatt and Islam – has been appearing on many, mainly political, forums, world-wide, within the last month, and is posted under various user names.

So far, there have been about fifteen forums infested with this message, all of which messages are identical, which certainly does indicate a concerted campaign of disinformation by (probably) just one individual who has a rather unhealthy obsession with Myatt.

I say “disinformation” because the person makes a rather silly pretense of doing some “research” and asking for information about Myatt, stating that “the only information from independent sources that I can find is…” and then gives links to two sites which are far from being “independent sources”. One is a conspiracy site by a conspiracy nut; the other is a political organization which has been posting various unsubstantiated allegations about Myatt for over twenty years, and which is itself rumored to be linked to Britain’s MI5 (see the Wikipedia article about this “Searchlight” group for more info).

It is a silly pretense about asking for information about Myatt, because:

Anyone who’s seriously interested in the relationship that may exist between some Muslims and the far Right would have found and read Professor Michael’s book about the subject – The Enemy of My Enemy: The Alarming Convergence of Militant Islam and the Extreme Right – which provides some good info.

Anyone who’s seriously interested in David Myatt would have found the Wikipedia article about him

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Myatt

which provides a fairly balanced overview of the man, and gives references for further research.

The person also makes at least three factual errors in his two short paragraphs. The errors are:

(1) “he announced to the world”. Wrong – Myatt kept quiet about it for nearly two years.
(2) “It made quite an impact in the UK press at the time”. Wrong. It went unnoticed until two years later, after Myatt featured on BBC Panorama program about Copeland. Even then, there were only a few articles about Myatt.
(3) “since then I have heard nothing”. Wrong. Like I said, he missed the full page article in The Times newspaper, and Myatt’s Q&A session on Sheikh Qaradawi’s website, and Myatt’s interesting article “From Neo-Nazi to Muslim” which has appeared on many Islamic websites, including recently one in the UK, and one in Thailand.

The sources given by this obvious cyber-stalker are clearly hostile ones despite the stalker writing “I don’t think either of them is a hostile source…” [regarding Searchlight, see the upcoming article “David Myatt and Searchlight” which will appear on this blog soon].

It is possible that the offending author of the offending post is the young Canadian-based Zionist who has a Myatt obsession and who has been stalking Myatt for over seven years.

I reproduce the item in question as it has appeared on such forums, complete with links.

The Offending Post

I am interested in the relationship between Muslim extremism and the far Right.

A few years ago a guy called David Myatt announced to the world that he was converting to the muslim faith. Up to that point he had a strong involvement with various neo-nazi political groups. It made quite an impact in the UK press at the time, but since then I have heard nothing. The only information from independent sources that I can find is this:

http://rigorousintuition.yuku.com/topic/821/t/David-Myatt-Searchlight-article.html

and this:

http://www.declarepeace.org.uk/captain/murder_inc/site/nazi.html

Please help out if you can find anything else on this.

I haven’t put any gaps in my links because I don’t think either of them is a hostile source. If there are any problems, will the Moderator please get in touch and I will change them.


Update and Addendum:

More on the New Myatt Stalker:

As reported above, an anonymous person has been posting dozens of messages to forums, world-wide, pretending to be doing some “research” into either David Myatt or into cooperation between Muslims and neo-nazis.

I write “pretending”, for the reasons given above, but to summarize: the obvious intent of this new stalker is to try to discredit Myatt by posting links to biased articles containing unproven allegations against Myatt while claiming that he/she “can only find” the posted “independent” links which are far from being “independent”.

In a new twist, the stalker posted an even more obsequious message that usual on an Islamic forum, giving the “usual two biased links”, as before, but added a quote from a forged item – questioning Myatt commitment to Islam – the like of which quote the zionist stalker (famous for his failed attempts to discredit Myatt on the Islamic Awakening forum) has posted several times before.

This post – like some of the other posts by the new stalker – drew the attention of a certain Myatt fan: someone who finds Myatt’s life interesting and respects his conversion to Islam. So, the fan replied to the stalker’s message on the Islamic forum, pointing out that the new stalker was possibly the zionist who had insulted the Prophet, Muhammad (which insult, many Muslims believe, carries the death penalty for Muslims and non-Muslims alike) and who had been stalking Myatt for around seven years.

This reply elicited an excited response from the new stalker: “I am so cross…Why is he stalking me?” he wrote, trying to deflect attention from his own stalking of Myatt by accusing the Myatt fan of stalking him, a familiar, and rather cry-baby, tactic which the “old” zionist stalker had also tried to use on numerous occasions, on Usenet and elsewhere. Obviously the new stalker forgets that he is the one who posted dozens of messages about Myatt, under various, different, user-names, pretending to ask to “information”, perhaps believing that he/she is being very clever by posting what they believe is a “cleverly crafted” message.

The stalker also accused the Myatt fan of being Myatt, another common ruse employed by obsessives in cyberspace obsessed with getting their obsession across.

Here is one of the replies by the Myatt fan (who for some conspiratorial reason often uses the user-name raffy) to the reply by the person who does seem to be rather obsessed with Myatt in a somewhat negative sort of way.

Anyone of any sagacity can see right through your “polite request” for info – as I pointed out in my first reply to your initial post.

Instead of answering the points I made about your post being just a trick to spread malicious rumors and allegations about Myatt, you now just use the tired old Usenet-type tactic of making accusations against me, of trying to shift the focus away from your factual errors, of which there are many.

So, what about the many factual errors contained in your original short post?

Thus, I repeat my points:

1) If you really are doing some serious research, then you would have found far more than the two spurious so-called “independent” items you linked to. Items such as books by Professor Kaplan, and Professor Michael.

2) If you had done even some preliminary, elementary research you would have found that Myatt did not “announce his conversion” to the world, as you claimed.

3) What about your error that “It made quite an impact in the UK press at the time…”? It went unnoticed for almost two years.

4) What about your error that “since then I have heard nothing…” ? Like I wrote, you missed the full page story in The Times newspaper; you missed Myatt’s question and answer session on Sheikh Qaradawi’s website. You missed an awful lot more.

5) What about your erroneous claim that the two sources you could find (obviously your Google or Yahoo searches are very different from mine) are “independent”? They are not independent in any shape or form. One makes the claim – without providing any evidence – that Myatt was/is an MI5 agent, and one is a political organization which even many on the Left in Britain find somewhat dubious because of its (alleged) links with MI5 and its past divisive actions within the Left. The people at Searchlight are just part of The Fourth estate: they do not deal in facts, but in innuendo, smear, allegations and assumptions.

As for the allegation that Myatt is MI5, this has now been taken further, with claims that he’s a 5GW operative (wow!) – but again, proof is lacking. It’s just assumption.

and

http://aboutmyatt.wordpress.com/2008/04/25/myatt-5gw-operative-mi5-agent-trickster-mage-or-simply-muslim/

So, the conclusion is – due to all these errors and mistakes – that your post is just a ruse to spread unsubstantiated allegations about Myatt. If it was not, you would at the very least have given some other links which balanced the biased view of Searchlight – which, BTW, never presented any evidence for their allegations, ever.

Identity of the New Stalker Revealed?

Update, May 9, 2008 CE

Someone drew my attention, the other day, to a remarkable similarity between the many messages about Myatt, mentioned above, and messages posted some months ago, on forums like Stormfront, asking questions about a certain Richard Moult (ex-ONA).

The identity of the Moult stalker/troublemaker is well-known among esoteric-minded folk of the sinister kind (a few of whom have “put a hex on him”). This particular individual hails from Shropshire, and he has something of an unsavory reputation as a wife-beater, has a personal grudge against Moult, and has tried to sell stories of Moult’s involvement with the ONA, and with Myatt’s Reichsfolk, to various British tabloid newspapers, who just weren’t interested.

So, it’s possible that this person has now turned his attentions – for whatever warped reasons – to Myatt (a former personal friend of Moult’s).

But it’s also possible, of course, that it’s just the old zionist Myatt stalker (of Islamic Awakening forum fame) trying out new tactics, which have failed miserably.


David Myatt: Muslim, Nazi, or Satanist?

There has been much discussion, on the Internet, in published articles and books, about whether or not David Myatt is or is not Anton Long; whether or not he is, or was, involved with (or founded) The Order of Nine Angles; and whether he is a Nazi, a Satanist or – as he himself now claims – a Muslim.

The salient facts are, briefly, as follows:

1) Despite many claims, no one has ever produced any evidence in support of the allegation, assumption and rumor that Myatt is Anton Long.

2) Myatt has always consistently denied being Anton Long.

3) Myatt has always denied being a Satanist, and has asserted that:

(a) He once – and decades ago, in the 1970’s and before he entered the novitiate of a Nazarene monastery – had a purely academic interest in the Occult as part of his Faustian desire to “seek wisdom and understanding”;

(b) He once – in the early 1970’s while active as a Nazi and again before he entered the novitiate of a Nazarene monastery – “conceived a plan to use or if necessary create secret Occult-type groups” with the subversive aim of using them to further his plan to “create a revolutionary situation which a National-Socialist group might take advantage of”. However, he soon abandoned this plan because “the meagre achievements were far outweighed by the problems these groups caused.”

(c) That no one has ever produced any evidence in support of the allegation, assumption and rumor that Myatt is a Satanist, despite Myatt’s repeated challenge for them to do so.

4) Since his conversion to Islam in 1998, Myatt has consistently renounced his Nazi, racist, views, and has been described by his former Nazi associates as a “race-traitor”.

5) Myatt gave a clue as to the real identity of Anton Long in an 1997 interview with Nick Lowles when he admitted to doing a favor for a “long standing friend”. This friend was, at that time, an Oxford academic.

6) According to the current exoteric head of the ONA, Myatt is not now, and never has been, a member of the ONA.

7) Since his conversion to Islam – and particularly in the years since 9/11 – Myatt has written a vast amount of articles, which confirm his commitment to Islam, which glorify Islamism, Jihad, and are in support of the Taliban and bin Laden.

Therefore, it seems reasonable to conclude on the basis of such evidence that Myatt is not Anton Long; is not a Satanist; is neither the leader nor the founder of the ONA; and is, and has been, for nine years, not only a Muslim but also committed to propagating an extremist Islamist ideology.

A Short Commentary On David Myatt: Muslim, Nazi, or Satanist?

by Pointyhat (as Devil’s Advocate)

2) Myatt has always consistently denied being Anton Long. 3) Myatt has always denied being a Satanist

Well, we would comment that “he would say/write that…” – would he not? If he were involved – or had been involved – in such things, and wanted to continue causing disruption/Chaos (or whatever term we might use) to further his sinister goals, by, for instance, supporting such things as Jihad.

6) According to the current exoteric head of the ONA, Myatt is not now, and never has been, a member of the ONA.

Again, he/she/they would most certainly say/write that, especially if Myatt did indeed found (or take over the leadership of) the ONA, was the current Grand Master of it, and did not want his part in it to be made public.

7) Since his conversion to Islam – and particularly in the years since 9/11 – Myatt has written a vast amount of articles, which confirm his commitment to Islam, which glorify Islamism, Jihad, and are in support of the Taliban and bin Laden.

If it is assumed that this conversion and these articles was, and were, done from some hidden sinister motive, in pursuit of sinister aims (as quite a few people believe vis-a-vis Myatt) then such things are not strictly evidence in favour of the author’s claim that Myatt is a Muslim “committed to propagating an extremist Islamist ideology.”

Therefore, if one wants to assume, presume, or claim that Myatt was/is involved with the ONA, and that his aims were (and still are) sinister, then it is easy enough to interpret his life – and his various denials of involvement, and his various writings and activities – in this particular manner.

Thus, those who, like Myatt, propound or who (like the above author seem to) accept an alternative explanation (of Myatt’s non-involvement) only have, in their favour, the cited lack of evidence (of involvement). But even when, or if, some such direct evidence of such an involvement was forthcoming, that too could, most probably, be “explained away” in some manner by Myatt or those who accept (for whatever reason) the denial of involvement.

In addition, one might ask just what would constitute valid evidence of such involvement? A “kiss and tell” story of the kind beloved by dishonourable tabloid journalists? Compromising photographs of Myatt in black robe, with embroidered ONA sigil, at some “Satanic Black Mass”? A handwritten letter by Myatt admitting his involvement, or admitting to being Anton Long?

Perhaps some of Myatt’s vitriolic opponents (such as the person – one of the two notorious Myatt stalkers – who has in the past two years flooded forums, world-wide, with, for example, messages about “doing some research” into Myatt’s life) will now seek to concoct some forged evidence in favour of such involvement.

Until then, or even after then, we can continue – as usual – to either make, and accept, our own assumptions and theories about Myatt, or we can choose, for whatever reason, to believe Myatt himself.

For myself, I must admit to finding the “conspiracy theories” (of the MI5 agent or 5GW operative kind) much more intriguing, and much more interesting, than the dull denials. I also, personally, tend to favour the now, it seems, generally accepted theory – among esoteric-kind – of Myatt being Anton Long, the “shapeshifting” creator genius of the modern ONA mythos; of him pursuing, for many decades, dark and sinister aims, and of using both National Socialism and Islam as tactics in pursuit of such aims.


Is
David Myatt A Muslim?

This question has been asked with surprising frequency –
mostly by Myatt’s former political opponents, such as the anti-fascist Searchlight
organization
– since Myatt’s conversion to Islam became publicly known, in the year
2000 CE. Myatt himself has steadfastly maintained that he is a Muslim,
and has issued several public denunciations of his former racist,
nationalist and neo-nazi views and – since around 2000 CE – has
written, using his Muslim name of Abdul-Aziz, literally hundreds of
essays and articles about, and praising, Islam.

Several of Myatt’s former political enemies – and some
Zionists,
opposed to the radical Islamist views he has propounded for nearly ten
years – have stated many times that they believe that his conversion
was just a ploy, a subterfuge, to further what they claim are still his
neo-nazi aims. However, considering that Myatt is now regarded, by the
majority of his former nazi and racist “comrades” – and by most “White
nationalists” – as a race traitor, and considering Myatt’s praise of
Islam, his many articles critical of “the kuffar”, and especially his
public denunciation of racialism racism, nationalism and National
Socialism, this claim is highly unlikely if not erroneous. How can
praising Islam, stridently denouncing and rejecting his former
political views – and being regarded by neo-nazis as a race-traitor –
be considered as “aiding neo-nazism”? In my opinion, it cannot, and
this particular argument advanced by some individuals is therefore
untenable.

It also does appear as if the zealous opponents of Myatt have
sometimes gone to great lengths to discredit him, as a Muslim, for
instance by posting fake articles which they claim he has written, or
by adding or altering the dates on some of his already Internet
published items, or even – in one instance – setting up a complete fake
site replete with articles with Myatt’s name on them.

Other opponents of Myatt – for whatever reason and from
whatever
motive we can only speculate – claim that Myatt, in fact, never
converted to Islam at all, but only claimed that he did, although this
claim is easily disproved since Myatt, around 2003 CE, released a
digitally scanned image of his Testimony of Faith
in Islam, signed by two witnesses to his Shahadah, and by the Director
of the Islamic Foundation,
Dr. M.M. Ahsan. This certificate is dated 15 Sept 1998/24 Jumada Al-Ula
1419 and Myatt’s Shahadah was at Jamia Masjid Ghousia, Worcester, on
the 6 September 1998 and his witnesses were Hafiz Mohammad Tufail and
Qadi Abdur Sa’ouf. Myatt regularly attended prayers at Mosques in that
area for many years after his conversion.

Still other opponents of Myatt – again, for whatever reason
and from
whatever motive we can only speculate – have claimed that, even if he
did convert at a Mosque, it was just a sham, and part of some sinister
plan of his to disrupt society and further what they also claim are his
“satanic aims”. For the individuals making this claim – for which they
have no evidence whatsoever – also claim, again without evidence, that
Myatt is “Anton Long”, the assumed founder and leader of the notorious
sinister organization, the Order of Nine Angles. However, even if we
assume – for the sake of argument – that Myatt was Anton Long, and was
the founder of the this ONA, then Myatt’s conversion to Islam could and
would signify a complete rejection of such things, something which
seems quite evident from the fact that Myatt himself has, since his
conversion, produced voluminous writings about and in praise of Islam.

However, some former supporters of Myatt – and, indeed, some
Occultists – have put forward various conspiracy-like theories in which
they also claim, again without a shred of evidence, that Myatt is only
“using” Islam for some devious political, and/or, some devious Occult
purpose, perhaps – in the case of the neo-nazis – choosing not to
believe that their former “neo-nazi hero” has indeed converted to
Islam, and choosing – in the case of the Occultists – not to believe
that the person they assume is the “sinister genius, Anton Long” could
and did convert to Islam and has remained a Muslim for over ten years.

Perhaps the most important fact to be remembered about all
these
claims, is that they are only unsubstantiated claims, for no evidence
in support of them has ever been presented, although, for over five
years, a certain Zionist, renowned for his obsession with and hatred of
Myatt – for whatever reason and from whatever motive we can only
speculate – trolled Internet newsgroups and some Islamic forums with
such claims, claiming to have “evidence” which, when presented, was
shown to be fallacious, as happened, for instance, on the Muslim
Islamic Awakening
forum, where several Muslims came to
Myatt’s defence.

Which leads us on to the fact that Myatt is accepted, as a
Muslim,
by Muslims, and has even taken part – on well known and “moderate”
Islamic website – in a live dialogue where he replied to questions
submitted to him by Muslims, world-wide. While some Muslims have been
critical of Myatt’s radical Jihadi stance, others have praised his
Islamic writings, and many of his radical Islamist tracts have been
published, under his name, on various Islamist websites and blogs.
Indeed, a recent translation of Myatt’s article The Aims of
Al-Qaeda
– on a website run by an Imam deported from a
European country for being associated with Al-Qaeda
has the word hafizahullah
(apparently, a term of respect, meaning “may Allah protect him”) after
Myatt’s Muslim name, and a fellow Muslim has, at the time of writing
(November 21, 2008 CE) collected Myatt’s Islamist writings together and
placed them on a website under the title The Writings of
Sheikh Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt.

Given the complete lack of evidence to support the various
claims
made about Myatt’s conversion to Islam, and about him being “Anton
Long”; given Myatt’s many public statements affirming his Islam and his
renunciation of his former political views; given Myatt’s voluminous
articles praising Islam and denouncing the kuffar, and kufr, of the
West; and especially given Myatt’s acceptance by other Muslims, the
sensible, rational, conclusion is that, yes, Myatt did convert to Islam
and, yes, David Myatt is, and remains, a Muslim.

However, I am sure that this conclusion – and the facts
supporting
it – will not deter Myatt’s detractors from continuing to make their
unsupported claims, and from continuing to make allegations about
Myatt. I am also sure that this conclusion will come as a
disappointment to those “neo-nazis” and Occultists who have spun
various conspiracy-like theories around Myatt’s conversion.
