Myatt is a living, subversive, prism, transforming the dull monochrome light of ordinary life into a spectrum of vibrant colours that can inspire.

Over the past year, a multitude of rumours have been spread – mostly via the medium of the Internet – about Myatt leaving Islam, and returning to the mystical philosophy of The Numinous Way which he has developed over a period of around ten years.

Furthermore, not only have several new articles – allegedly by Myatt himself – been circulated and appeared on the Internet, with titles such as Introduction to the Ontology of Being – in which the author explains the philosophy of The Numinous Way – but also articles, by both Myatt fans and Myatt detractors, have been published, commenting on this alleged return and this seeming rejection, by Myatt, of Islam.

As for Myatt himself, his most recent authenticated pronouncements have included a post, some weeks ago (September 2010 CE) on his own Islamist weblog, in which he publicly re-affirmed he was a Muslim, and his autobiography, Myngath (published July 2010 CE) indicating there has not been such a renunciation of Islam, but only some doubts stemming from a personal tragedy.

But one has to ask the question – Does all or any of this really matter, to us? If so, why? Just what are such perceptions of Myatt trying to tell us about him, and possibly more importantly, about ourselves as we use such outward things as a measure of our judgement?


Myatt and The Order of Nine Angles

Most importantly, what all commentators on the subject of Myatt’s alleged, assumed, or even real, pronouncements regarding “leaving Islam” have either not noticed or not commented upon, for some reason, is that Myatt’s alter ego, Anton Long [1] has never, ever, in the past forty years made any pronouncements or announcements regarding having rejected The Sinister Way or the Order of Nine Angles (ONA).

That is, Anton Long – for the past forty or more years – has remained steadfastly loyal to The Sinister Way and the ONA, and has continued to write, to circulate and to have published, ONA material and documents.

This fact alone may well point those who seem to be confused by Myatt’s many apparent “changes of direction” in the right direction, and allay both their suspicions and doubts regarding Myatt and what many mundanes and Magians have described as Myatt’s psychological instability, based, as this silly opinion of theirs is, on their own presumption that he has flitted from one ideology to another, and from one religion to another, over a period of several decades.

In my opinion, this one fact, this undeniable truth, certainly seems to points us toward the reality that Anton Long is, or represents, the real Myatt – and that the ONA, with its sinister and long-term goals and aims [2], represents the real goals and aims of Myatt himself.

This would mean that all Myatt’s various, diverse, involvements – political, religious, and otherwise – should be seen in this light, as a means to an end. This end is a new type of (sinister) society, and a new type of human being.

As one commentator about Myatt wrote:

Myatt’s primary aim, throughout his entire adult life, has been to find, develope and use means to bring about his vision of a Galactic Imperium. All his various endeavors and involvements – from National Socialism, to the ONA, to his philosophy of The Numinous Way, to his involvement with radical Islam – are all part of this.

They are all means to explain, to propagate, to try and implement – through, for example, destabilizing the status quo, confronting the Magian, and agitating for revolution – his Vindex mythos and this vision of a Galactic Imperium. He has been almost fanatically single-minded in his pursuit of this vision, and, at times, quite ruthless. He has also been exceptionally pragmatic – using whatever means, whatever ideology, whatever tactics, that might help him undermine and confront what he calls “the tyranny of the Magian manifest in the dishonourable Amerikan empire of Homo Hubris.”

These tactics have included racist violence, racist and Islamic terrorism, Nazi politics, and using the ONA as a means of subversion and radical change. Myatt has also been consistent, for over four decades, in upholding and propagating the principle of personal honor, which he wove into his NS writings, which he made one of the foundations of his philosophy of The Numinous Way, and which he made the basis for both the clans of Vindex and the tribes of the ONA. JR Wright:  The Numinous Dark – Myatt and the Vindex Mythos

My own view is that this Galactic Imperium of Myatt’s is simply the outward and practical form of the ONA’s sinister New Aeon, where what the ONA call the Law of The Sinister-Numen, and new tribes, hold sway, having displaced and destroyed the old ways of nation and of States.

Thus, even Myatt’s mystical, apolitical Numinous Way could well be – and most probably is – a means, a tactic. One more way in which people can reject The System, the ways of The Old Order, the Old Aeon, and create for themselves what amounts to a new and ultimately subversive way of living, detached from The State, and certainly detached from the Magian New World Order and its tyrannical abstractions.


Myatt and National Socialism

Another fact which has seemingly been overlooked in the past ten years of so since Myatt’s conversion to Islam, is that he has never renounced, publicly, his support for and praise of Adolf Hitler and Hitler’s loyal German supporters.

Furthermore, Myatt has, several times, and as a Muslim – and most recently last year (2009 CE) – continued to express his admiration for Hitler and the Third Reich.

Consider, for example, the following quotes (with my emphasis), from Myatt.

” I have never, in my heart and mind, renounced my belief in Adolf Hitler as a good man, an honourable man, who… strove to create a just and noble society, and who was destroyed by the ignoble machinations of those opposed to what is good and who have spread dishonourable lies about him, his followers and his Cause. Thus it is that I find I cannot denounce this noble man and those who fought and died for the cause he upheld, as I cannot and will not denounce those who today honourably (and I stress honourably) continue the struggle in his name and who respect the Way of Life which is Al-Islam and who thus see we who are Muslims as allies in the fight against our common enemy. Thus it is that I continued for several years, after my reversion, with Reichsfolk – an honourable organization striving to presence something of the Numen I believe was manifest in National-Socialist Germany and in and through the life of Adolf Hitler.”    Autobiographical Notes, Part 2, dated 1422 AH

” The currently unpopular and often censored truth of our times is that National-Socialist Germany – what it had evolved to be by the beginning of The First Zionist War – was a modern mostly unconscious expression of the numinous, honourable, warrior ethos, and stood in complete and stark contrast to the materialism, the hubris, of the Magian and their allies and servants in the West, represented by the arrogant, profane, White Hordes of Homo Hubris. Furthermore, had NS Germany not been defeated by The White Hordes of Homo Hubris and by the machinations of the Magian, there is almost no doubt that it would have evolved further to become the genesis of a new numinous resurgence, and restored to the West, and other lands, that connexion to the numinous which centuries of plunder, exploitation, greed, abstractions, and dishonourable war had severed…”  Mythos of Vindex, Chapter 2 (The Ethos of Vindex In Historical Context), undated, but c. 2009 CE

” The simple reality is that the Zionists and the Amerikans and their allies are lying, deceitful, hypocritical, dishonourable bullies, while the Mujahideen – as were the vast majority of the soldiers of the Third Reich – are honourable warriors fighting for a just, anti-Zionist, cause…

There certainly were many who fought and who died for Adolf Hitler, and for their fatherland, who were striving to act in an honourable way, and indeed many – such as Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle, Hans Ulrich Rudel and Major-General Otto Ernst Remer – who not only did act honourably, but who embodied the true, non-racist, spirit of Hitler’s National-Socialism…

I still respect genuine National-Socialists – of whom there are very few, today – as I do understand how genuine National-Socialism can create a somewhat more noble society than exists in any Western land today, with such a society benefiting not only the peoples of the West but also we who are Muslim, for such societies, as mentioned in the above quote of mine, would aid us in our war against world Zionism and our battles against the type of dishonourable arrogant bully so evident in the Amerika of today.”    Islam, National-Socialism, and Honour, dated 1430 AH

These truths – this continuing respect by Myatt for Hitler and genuine (honourable, ethical) National Socialists – may well give us another clue as to Myatt’s real motivates, goals and aims.

This clue is his life-long, at times fanatical, commitment to fighting what he, and the ONA, euphemistically call the Magian, and the Magian ethos [3].

In one of his earliest, published writings – Vindex: The Destiny of the West – published in 1984 CE (and written c. 1976 CE) Myatt analyses what he called the Magian distortion of The West, by which he meant the influence and the power of the Zionists.

It is no coincidence that Myatt – in both his NS days and as a Muslim – called and calls The Second World War the First Zionist War, and that this commitment to fighting the Magian, and the Magian ethos, is also an integral part of the mythos and philosophy of the ONA.

Indeed, this anti-Magian aspect of the ONA led one academic to write that one of distinguishing characteristics of the ONA is that it is a non-Semitic tradition, and purposely avoids any Jewish and Nazarene influence. [4]

Myatt and Islam

It is my view that Myatt has engaged with Islam, and is still engaged with Islam – despite reports to the contrary – for three principle reasons.

The first reason is that he regards Islam – or rather, the radical Islam of the Jihadists – as the only practical and effective means of currently fighting what he calls the dishonour and tyranny of the New World Order, led by America and its Zionist ally.

Consider, for example, the following, taken from a supplication (prayer, or dua) said by Al-Qaeda and their supporters, and also by many of the Taliban:

اللهُمَّ أَحْصِهِمْ عَدَداً، وَاقْتُلْهُمْ بَدَداً، وَلا تُغَادِرْ مِنْهُمْ أَحَداً، وَاجْعَلْهُمْ

عِبْرَةً لأَمْثَالِهِمْ مِنَ اليَهُودِ وَالنَّصَارى وَالمُشْرِكِينَ، أَذِلَّةً صَاغِرِينَ.

Allah! We ask that you kill them together, and alone – so that not a single one remains – humiliating and debasing them, making them thus an example of their kind for all Yahud, Nasara, and Mushriks…

Myatt – with his lifelong commitment to fighting what he calls “the perfidy and dishonour of the Zionists and their lackeys…” – is surely at home here. These people are like him; they have the same aims – a desire to defeat their Zionist enemies, and to establish new societies led by warriors and which train warriors.

Is it therefore surprising that we apparently see Myatt again and again returning to Islam, to his brothers-in-arms? To those who, today, are the only ones fighting his enemies in a practical way?

The second reason – obvious from his Islamic writings – is that he regards what he calls the authentic Islam of Ahlus Sunnah wa Jamaah as a practical manifestation of the numinous, in the modern world, having taken over this mantle, of being a practical manifestation, from a failed German National Socialism [5].

The third reason, and possibly the most important one, at this precise moment in time, is that he is a man of honour. Thus, he admits that his Shahadah – the testimony of faith in Islam given in a Mosque in front of two Muslim witnesses – was an oath of loyalty:

” I took an oath of loyalty, on my honour, to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Messenger, Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and this is a binding, life-long oath… ” Islam, Honour and Duty

He also hints, in several of his writings and letters, that he has given bay’ah – a personal pledge of loyalty – to a living person, a Muslim, and while we may speculate as to who this person is, what seems to matter for Myatt is the binding nature of such an oath.

Hence it is not, or would not be for him, a simple matter of “just leaving Islam” – but instead it would be a matter of betraying such oaths, and thus betraying himself, his honour. Thus, even if, for the sake of argument, we assume that Myatt may have in recent months – or even last year, also – wanted to immerse himself totally in his own Numinous Way, at the expense of Islam, he may well have, ultimately, had no choice in the matter, given this bay’ah, and given someone he respected possibly reminding him of his honourable duty.

Is it therefore surprising that we find – or we seem to find – him placing Islam again [6] at the forefront of his life? Doing his honourable duty? Is it therefore surprising that he might – despite words in such articles as A Return To My Beginning – have decided to do continue supporting a certain war?

A similitude here might be of a man of honour who has sworn to be loyal to the leader of a certain clan, and who for years has done his honourable duty, and helped and protected the clan against its rivals, and which rivals have killed many of his friends. Gradually, he falls in love with a woman who offers him a very different way of life, which life he, personally likes, and enjoys, and inwardly desires to retire to. But the war against his clan and his chief continue. What is he to do? Abandon them, and live as his own heart desires? Would that not be a betrayal of them, especially during their time of need?

Those who have no sense of honour, no sense of duty, no sense of loyalty, will naturally see no problem here.

Another, perhaps more mundane, similitude might be of a man with duties and honourable obligations to his wife and family. He may have ceased to love his wife in the manner he once did, and may even have fallen in love with another woman. He may even no longer even like the daily toil he does by which he provides for his wife and family. Does he just simply do what he in his heart desires to do – go off with his lover and begin a new life? Or is he still bound, by duty, honour and loyalty, to do what is best for his wife – and especially for his still growing, young, family?

The Laughing Trickster

Another view, prevalent among some who have studied the life and times of Myatt, is that all the many and different effusions which Myatt issues or has issued in the past four or so years about “returning to his Numinous Way” are just designed to test and to confuse.

To test our mundaneness and our own honour, and to confuse his enemies and detractors, among whom are, naturally, various government Intelligence agencies and Police forces who take a decidedly humourless view of subversive individuals, such as Myatt, writing, inciting and supporting “terrorism”, and trying to subvert the States and nations of the Western world.

According to this view, Myatt is playing games, and is akin to a Laughing Trickster.

The Complex Man

The fundamental mistake that many or most people make, in respect of assessing or judging Myatt, is that they desire or are determined to or need to assign just one label to him. That is, and for them, Myatt has to be – or can only be – either a nazi, or a Muslim, or a Satanist, or a mystic following a mystic philosophy such as The Numinous Way. Or some kind of trickster, playing some esoteric game of his own, and laughing at us all as we flounder about striving to understand.

It never seems to occur to the majority of these people – these mundanes or Magians – that such a labelling is so Old Aeon, so passée; and an example of pure prejudice, of an inability to transcend beyond the mundanity of labels and causal categories.

As a young, Californian-based, female fan of Myatt recently commented,

” I would say that all three aspects of DM co-exist and are co-real at the same time…. I think that DM – and any living intelligent person for that matter – is too fluid, too dynamic, too complex in mind, to be boxed up inside one single well defined ‘area’. I would say that DM… is therefore not a set of boxes and labels where one cubby box is Islam, the other is ONA and so on; but that he is more like a spectrum. This spectrum consisting of many different ideas and concepts that overlap each other in certain areas…….”

Hence, many ordinary people – mundanes or Magians – really do get quite confused when someone such as Myatt appears to be all these things at once, or seems to move easily, effortlessly, from one to another of them, and then back again.

Are such things, then as the ONA, Islam, The Numinous Way, just roles, for Myatt? Just outward forms assumed for some practical purpose or another? If so, then who, or what, is the real Myatt? Or, indeed, is there – or can there be, or should there be – such a person?

The simplest explanation – which many can readily accept, and have accepted – is that they are roles, played or assumed by the sinister Magus, Anton Long. Thus, Anton Long – the evil genius behind the subversive and sinister ONA – is the real Myatt.

Another, somewhat less simple, explanation, is that Myatt has been on a voyage of both inner and outer discovery – a Faustian, or Promethean, quest, for wisdom. Here is an apt quote, from a young female fan of Myatt’s, based in England:

[Myatt is] a complex man, and one who it’s impossible to understand without considered and prolonged study. Reading wikipedia will only obfuscate, given that the way information is structured and determined appropriate there is mutually exclusive with any expression which provides understanding of his character. The Wikipedia article simply isn’t useful in forming any intelligent opinion of him.

He would say that you are being dishonourable by passing a superficial-causal judgement without taking the time to either meet and discuss matters with him or, at least, seriously attempt to understand things from his perspective before making an empathetic judgement, and not reactively judging in accordance with emotive-abstract labels.

At least read his poetry if you’re going to post about him (not any points he’s made or his Philosophy on their own merits). That’s where you can see the man as he is, and come to some limited appreciation of the kinds of things that motivate his actions; instead of seeing him as he plays at being for the sake of understanding. (Yes, understanding– how dedicated would a person have to be that they would be prepared to immerse themselves in violent subcultures such as radical Islam for the purpose of understanding that which is heretical from the inside? You’d have to want understanding more than anything else. You’d have to be a martyr to wisdom, doing that in the knowledge that you’d forever be instantly rejected upon the basis of some label you’d voluntarily taken on. Bear in mind that he’s alternated between the Numinous Way, radical Islamism and other positions for years now. That’s not the behavior of a self-identified ideologue or true believer. )

My own view, however, is that Myatt is or has been – and can be again and again – the real essence which is hidden, or which has been hidden, behind such terms as mystic, nazi, satanist, Muslim, Trickster, and that such assigned terms, such labels, obscure or hinder us from appreciating, that essence. Furthermore, that this essence is not as different, not as divergent, as such terms and labels suggest or lead us to believe. Instead, they are – in their own very essence – but different emanations of the same thing, a colourful spectrum rather than one single, well-defined, colour. In this sense, Myatt is a living, subversive, prism, transforming the dull monochrome light of ordinary life into a spectrum of vibrant colours that can inspire us, if such vibrant colours resonant with us – if we ourselves are touched by them.

What sometimes confuses us about David Myatt – what confuses, confounds or even irks and angers the Magians and mundanes – is that he does not play by their rules. He does not accept their ethos, their worldview, but has conspired to construct his own – which is not his ethical, revised, Reichsfolk type National Socialism, not his “authentic Islam” of Muslim warriors, not the mysticism of his Numinous Way, and not even the “satanism” of his Order of Nine Angles.

Instead, it is the simple aspiration to change one’s self by direct practical experience; to not be afraid to experience diversity in one’s way of living; to have the capacity to be inspired by – for decades – a numinous, a grand, vision; to possess the ability to perceive, feel, to know, people, Nature, the world, the Cosmos, in their living essence, shorn, divested of labels, terms, categories, assumptions and presumptions; and, finally, it is the ability, the desire, to allow yourself to be changed, transmuted, transformed, by all these things until you finally emerge as a unique individual, a new type of human being, beyond all labels, terms, and categories which others may assign to you or may need to assign to you because you perplex, astound, annoy them and often make them feel quite uncomfortable.


The Myattian Changeling

Thus, such outward changes we might witness, or which we might assume are real, in the person called Myatt – and the few others like him – are not important. They are just signs; waymarkers; bearings taken on the path to Somewhere.

But there is more, and it is this “more” which has tended to make Myatt something of an enigma even to those of us who feel we “know” him and “understand” him and his peregrinations. For despite all the former – or perhaps it is because of all those things – Myatt is still engaged in combat with his life-long enemies. He is still fighting in a real war; he is still a warrior.

It is this, this dedication to fighting such a war, which is the second piece of evidence we need in order to really understand Myatt, and to understand why – even though he is the author of recent poems such as Dark Clouds of Thunder – he has returned to publicly supporting Islam and especially those Muslims who are fighting, in a practical manner, his old and life-long enemies, the Magian, and their Magian ethos.

But it does not – in my view – matter what our own, possibly changing, perception of the perplexing Myatt is, as it most certainly does not matter what the perception the mundanes have of him. What matters are two things.

What he does, on the practical level, to support and to aid his never changed and never changing aims; and what he leaves behind, or creates, which others – such as ourselves – may find useful, in our own, individual, quest, and also perhaps in our own combat against the Magian and their perfidious, anti-evolutionary, ethos, be this combat of ours practical, esoteric, or whatever.

Certainly, Myatt has given us many things, to use – from the sinister, subversive, ONA; to the ethical National Socialism of Reichsfolk; to The Numinous Way; to his Vindex mythos; to the real-life passionate, sensitive, Nature-loving wanderer we find in his poetry and private letters. Some may even find his Islamist writings of some use or of some benefit, as incitement, perhaps, to practical sinister subversion.

Ultimately, though, it is as an example of a changing changeling that we should view him – a traveller, an explorer, whose simple numinous vision may inspire us also.

As Myatt’s friend, the artist and composer Richard Moult wrote, in a review of Myatt’s autobiography, Myngath:

” A man so contradictory and perplexing and enraging to outsiders, whose life has been and is an opportunity to be revelled in and not to be wasted. This work presents aspects of that life (and there is much left unwritten) and is a reminder to all of us who can all too easily lose ourselves in the illusory mundane existence of this present age. Myatt is a traveller in all senses, exploring the uncharted worlds within, around and without us. Perhaps he will one day be understood as the human voyager he is: an example of one nexion of life seeking to understand itself within the infinite cold spaces of the cosmos.”

Footnotes

[1] I am here making the very plausible, and now generally accepted assumption (at least among the Occult cognoscenti) that Anton Long is Myatt’s pseudonym. Myatt himself continues to deny being Anton Long.

[2] From the ONA’s guide to its philosophy:

We see the breakdown, destruction, and the replacement of all existing (and mundane) societies  – by our new progressive societies based on our new warrior tribes – as a necessary prelude to this Galactic aim of ours.Thus, the immediate and intermediate aims of our sinister Way of Life are:

(1) to use our Dark Tradition to create sinister Adepts and, over a long period of causal Time, aid and enhance and create that new, more evolved, human species of which genuine Sinister Adepts may be considered to be the phenotype;

(2) to use the sinister dialectic (and thus Aeonic Magick and genuine Sinister Arts) to aid and enhance and make possible entirely new types of societies for human beings, with these new societies being based on new tribes and a tribal way of living where the only law is that of our Dark Warriors, which is the Law of The Sinister-Numen (see Appendix 1);

(3) to aid, encourage, and bring about – by both practical and esoteric means (such as subversion, revolution, and Dark Sorcery) – the breakdown and the downfall of existing societies, and thus to replace the tyranny of nations and States, and their impersonal governments, by our new tribal societies and our Law of the Sinister-Numen.

[3] Used by Myatt and the ONA, the term Magian refers to the materialism and the abstractions manufactured principally by Yahud, or “the Zionists”, and outwardly manifest in what Myatt, and others, call The New World Order, or the new Amerikan Empire.

According to Myatt, this new Empire is run by, or is under the influence of, Zionists, and four of its distinguishing features – of its Magian ethos – are abstract law (in contradistinction to Myatt’s law of personal honour); democracy (in contradistinction to the leadership principle of clan chiefs); egotistical materialism (in contrast to what Myatt calls the Way of the Warrior); and capitalism, the principle of debt, usury, and mechanistic work in contradistinction to a more numinous, agrarian, artisan, way of life and of working). [Source: Myatt – The Mythos of Vindex, Part Five: Toward the Galactic Imperium.]

However, it seems to me that in recent years the term Magian has acquired a more general meaning among aficionados of the ONA, and now refers to such abstractions as the modern nation-State and, indeed, anything and everything that is of The Old Order, and thus is tied to the causal world-view of the mundanes.

[4] Senholt, Jacob C: Political Esotericism & the Convergence of Radical Islam, Satanism and National Socialism in the Order of the Nine Angles. Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Conference: Satanism in the Modern World, November 2009

[5] This seems obvious when one reads Myatt’s Mythos of Vindex followed by reading some of his recent Islamic works, such as his rather neglected Replies Regarding Islam, and his Islam, National-Socialism, and Honour.

[6] I refer to the re-appearance of Myatt’s Islamist web-sites, as of July 2010 CE – after another apparent hiatus, from whatever cause.

One possible explanation of such a hiatus are the rumours that Myatt – before and during this time and travelling under a false name – visited America in order to set up clandestine ONA cells (or nexions, as the ONA calls them) dedicated to subversive activities. This might conceivably explain why a stridently anti-Muslim opponent of Myatt – describing Myatt as a terrorist – in August 2010 CE offered a USD $10,000 reward for information about Myatt’s whereabouts.

As to the nature of these subversive activities, we can only speculate, but it does seem to me more than just coincidence that recent writings by some ONA people resident in America have been permeated by attacks on the Magian ethos; have approvingly mentioned radical Islam as a modern heresy worthy of being adopted to subvert society; quoted from Myatt’s Islamist writings; and reaffirmed the ONA’s controversial stance that undertaking human culling is a duty incumbent upon every ONA member.

This radical subversive stance is evident, for instance, in the latest (September 2010 CE) edition of the ONA’s in-house journal, Fenrir, published in America – whose articles include a Black Mass of Jihad, the stated heretical intent of which is to “defy the Jewish controlled governments of the world and their interests”.  Interestingly, the text – although probably inspired by Myatt as Muslim – clearly reveals it was not written by Myatt. For instance, the style is most certainly not that of Myatt; Myatt has always, studiously and perhaps pedantically correct from an Islamist point of view, always avoided using the word Israel, preferring instead the ponderous phrase, “the Zionist entity that occupies Filistine,”; and he uses the words Zionists and Yahud and never the word Jews.

Furthermore, one of the main ONA blogs – arguably the most popular – run by two young women resident in California, even announced the publication of this edition of Fenrir with the blurb, ” Happy September 11th! This issue has a current interview with Anton Long. It also features some great articles topical to 9/11…

A Review of Myngath – The Autobiography of David Myatt

David Myatt, Feb 1993, Spain

David Myatt

A Review of

Myngath –  Some Recollections of the Wyrdful Life of David Myatt


Myngath is the title of David Myatt’s recently published autobiography. To those unfamiliar with Myatt, he has been called, at various times, in the last forty years, an evil genius, the most evil nazi in Britain, a ferocious Jihadi, a deeply subversive intellectual, and described as the mentor who drove David Copeland to kill.

In these forty or more years, Myatt has been twice jailed for racist attacks; acted as Colin Jordan’s bodyguard; led the political wing of the violent neo-nazi group Combat 18; translated ancient Greek literature; written several volumes of pagan poetry; been a Catholic monk, and last – but not least – supported Osama bin Laden and the Taliban.

According to the British newspaper, The Observer, Myatt was the “ideological heavyweight” behind the violent neo-nazi group Combat 18. Political scientist Professor George Michael wrote that Myatt has “arguably done more than any other theorist to develop a synthesis of the extreme right and Islam,”; while he was described, at a NATO conference on terrorism, in 2006, as having called on “all enemies of the Zionists to embrace the Jihad against Jews and the United States…” Myatt has also been accused of being the Grand Master of the secretive and sinister Occult group – famed for its support of human sacrifice –  the Order of Nine Angles, an accusation he has always denied.

In 1998, after over thirty years of involvement with neo-nazi politics, Myatt confounded his supporters and critics by converting to Islam. He has since and in the past three years – according to his own account – developed his own philosophy which he calls both The Numinous Way, and The Philosophy of The Numen – based, in his words, on the virtues of empathy, compassion and honor – thus ending his association with Islam, and instead devoting himself to philosophy, mysticism, and writing poetry.

Given this varied and somewhat strange and extreme life, one might expect his autobiography to provide interesting, if not fascinating, personal accounts of street brawls; meetings with Muslim extremists; life as a neo-nazi fanatic, as a convert to Islam, and then as a Muslim apostate.

What one gets, however, is something of an apologia – often rather cursory accounts of some events in his life, followed by an explanation of his feelings and motives. Occasionally, Myatt adds one of his own poems in order to express these feelings. The section on Islam – on his life as a Muslim – is particularly sparse, and while it seems somewhat glossed over, it is certainly interesting, with Myatt writing, for instance, that, “being part of the Ummah dissolved every last vestige of my former political beliefs…..I travelled in the Muslim world, met some very interesting and committed Muslims…..In a literal way, Islam taught me humility, something I aspired to during my time as a monk but which my then prideful nature rebelled against…..”

In fact, the work neatly falls into two categories, almost exactly mirrored by Myatt’s division of Myngath into two parts. The first category centers around his early life and his often violent and always extreme political involvements; the second, around his personal life, and in particular his liaisons with women. It is these liaisons that are, for me – and I suspect for many other readers – the most interesting, as well as being, in my opinion, the most informative about Myatt’s personal character.

These liaisons include two tragic events, and Myatt is remarkably honest about his feelings and his failings; and one is left with the impression of reading an almost religious story of redemption, only without God; the story of someone very slowly, and quite painfully, learning from their mistakes.

The story, that is, of a violent, driven, often fanatical and selfish man, obsessed with making his own inner and extremist political vision real, who gradually rediscovers his humanity after suffering two personal tragedies, and who ends up writing, in probably the most poignant passage of the book, that the tragedies had, “at last – after so much arrogance and stupidity and weakness on my part – revealed to me the most important truth concerning human life. Which is that a shared, a loyal, love between two people is the most beautiful, the most numinous, the most valuable thing of all.”

Of his departure from Islam, Myatt writes that it resulted “from one singular, important, event…” To wit, his love for a woman, and the subsequent tragic death of that woman.

Overall, this apologia – I do not feel it deserves to be called an autobiography – might therefore be more correctly described as a modern allegory, a tale of redemption, and it is this which, in my opinion, makes it a worthwhile and ultimately a valuable book to read. For its interest lies not in the person or character of Myatt himself – not in his various peregrinations, nor even in his own motivations for his deeds and involvements – but rather in the allegory: a modern Faust without the cloying appearance of God at the end.

David Myatt and National Socialism – A Reappraisal

Editorial Note: While I personally disagree with the views and conclusions of the author of the following article about Myatt, I publish it here in line with the policy of this blog – aboutmyatt – which is to present both pro and contra views about Myatt.

David Myatt and National Socialism – A Reappraisal

Many people have assumed that David Myatt – the author of numerous National Socialist writings, and founder and leader of the British neo-nazi group, The National-Socialist Movement – renounced his neo-nazi views when he converted to Islam in 1998. This opinion about him is one held today by many of those those associated with extreme Right-Wing political organizations.

However, I believe this assumption is wrong, and that Myatt, far from renouncing National Socialism (or, as he writes it – National-Socialism), has in fact spent the twelve years since his conversion to Islam creating and propagating a revised, more modern, version of National Socialism, which he calls ethical National-Socialism, and that he has continued what he has described, many times, as his life-long struggle against the perfidy of the Magian (Footnote 1).

Myatt certainly has never, even as a Muslim, publicly renounced his belief that Hitler was a good man, and in fact wrote several essays, as a Muslim, praising the warrior spirit of the SS. According to Professor George Michael (Footnote 2), Myatt has “arguably done more than any other theorist to develop a synthesis of the extreme right and Islam.” Myatt, also, has never publicly, even as a Muslim, condemned National Socialism.

This is Myatt, writing as a Muslim, years after his conversion –

” I have never, in my heart and mind, renounced my belief in Adolf Hitler as a good man, an honourable man, who… strove to create a just and noble society, and who was destroyed by the ignoble machinations of those opposed to what is good and who have spread dishonourable lies about him, his followers and his Cause. Thus it is that I find I cannot denounce this noble man and those who fought and died for the cause he upheld, as I cannot and will not denounce those who today honourably (and I stress honourably) continue the struggle in his name and who respect the Way of Life which is Al-Islam and who thus see we who are Muslims as allies in the fight against our common enemy. Thus it is that I continued for several years, after my reversion, with Reichsfolk – an honourable organization striving to presence something of the Numen I believe was manifest in National-Socialist Germany and in and through the life of Adolf Hitler.”    Autobiographical Notes, Part 2, dated 1422 AH

” The currently unpopular and often censored truth of our times is that National-Socialist Germany – what it had evolved to be by the beginning of The First Zionist War – was a modern mostly unconscious expression of the numinous, honourable, warrior ethos, and stood in complete and stark contrast to the materialism, the hubris, of the Magian and their allies and servants in the West, represented by the arrogant, profane, White Hordes of Homo Hubris. Furthermore, had NS Germany not been defeated by The White Hordes of Homo Hubris and by the machinations of the Magian, there is almost no doubt that it would have evolved further to become the genesis of a new numinous resurgence, and restored to the West, and other lands, that connexion to the numinous which centuries of plunder, exploitation, greed, abstractions, and dishonourable war had severed…”  Mythos of Vindex, Chapter 2 (The Ethos of Vindex In Historical Context), undated, but c. 2009 CE

” The simple reality is that the Zionists and the Amerikans and their allies are lying, deceitful, hypocritical, dishonourable bullies, while the Mujahideen – as were the vast majority of the soldiers of the Third Reich – are honourable warriors fighting for a just, anti-Zionist, cause…

There certainly were many who fought and who died for Adolf Hitler, and for their fatherland, who were striving to act in an honourable way, and indeed many – such as Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle, Hans Ulrich Rudel and Major-General Otto Ernst Remer – who not only did act honourably, but who embodied the true, non-racist, spirit of Hitler’s National-Socialism…

I still respect genuine National-Socialists – of whom there are very few, today – as I do understand how genuine National-Socialism can create a somewhat more noble society than exists in any Western land today…”    Islam, National-Socialism, and Honour, dated 1430 AH

Conversion to Islam

In July 2000, Searchlight, the anti-fascist magazine, described Myatt as “the most ideologically-driven Nazi in Britain, preaching race war and terrorism”, and although Myatt converted to Islam in 1998, he continued, until at least 2002, openly writing about National Socialism. These writings included his now well-known article, since translated into many languages, Why National-Socialism Is Not Racist, and his holocaust-denial essay, The Holocaust: Truth and Reason verses Zionist Propaganda.

In addition, he began codifying the weltanschaaung of his Reichsfolk organization, culminating in the collection, first issued in 2002, entitled Ethical National-Socialism: A Collection of Essays. He also issued, in 2003, a collection entitled, National-Socialism and Islam – The Case for Cooperation. Interestingly, both of these collections were updated, and subsequently re-issued, the latest edition of both appearing, under the Reichsfolk imprint, in 2009.

Did Myatt sincerely convert to Islam, or did come to regard Islam – or at least radical Islam – as just a better way of fighting his main enemy, the Magian?

There are very good reasons to believe the latter. For instance, The Times newspaper article about him, in 2006, stated that –

Myatt said recently that he had given up hope of a breakthrough by the far Right and believed that Muslims were the best hope for combating Zionism and the West.

“There will not be an uprising, a revolution, in any Western nation, by nationalists, racial nationalists, or National Socialists — because these people lack the desire, the motivation, the ethos, to do this and because they do not have the support of even a large minority of their own folk…
The pure authentic Islam of the revival, which recognises practical jihad as a duty, is the only force that is capable of fighting and destroying the dishonour, the arrogance, the materialism of the West.”

In a article titled A Covert Life, written in 2001 (dated 112 yf), and circulated privately among Reichsfolk members, Myatt wrote that:

“…with Islam I had an ulterior motive, at least initially. In addition to seeking some aid or support for the overthrow of ZOG, I wondered if it might be possible to create some kind of Aryan Islam – some kind of group to express Aryan culture and identity within the confines of Islam. In the end I concluded it was not possible, just as once again I found only National-Socialism to fully and rationally answer all the questions about life, existence, and our identity, as human beings.

Q: What about some of the articles you wrote – or allegedly wrote – while a Muslim?

A: Some of these were a ploy; others, a deception, to confuse and if possible divert the attention of the enemy. It does say in the National-Socialist Code of Honour that a man of honour may use guile and cunning to deceive a sworn enemy!

Q: Which was and is still ZOG?

A: Yes. I was still fighting the same war; still trying to achieve the aims I had set myself over twenty-five years earlier.

Q: Of using covert means – and what has become known as “leaderless resistance” – to bring about a revolution?

A: Indeed. We are at war. Years ago, I issued a public declaration of war against ZOG. Until we National-Socialists have won this war and created our own Aryan nation where we can live in freedom according to our own Aryan customs, this war continues, by whatever means are necessary and practical. “

Perhaps unluckily for Myatt, someone in America (probably Harold Covington) took it upon themselves to publish this article in the neo-nazi Invictus magazine, and it was then posted on the neo-pagan Skadi internet forum, where it remained, in relative obscurity, for many years. The publication of this essay was unluckily for Myatt in that it really did give the game away about his conversion to Islam, and Myatt had to hastily pen and issue some personal statements – one of which was rather grandiosely titled A Statement for Journalists – in which he proclaimed that, yes, he was a Muslim, and, no, he now had no political views because he was just a simple Muslim.

Just as telling about Myatt’s motivation was the fact that a comprehensive selection of Myatt’s National Socialist writings occupied, for over ten years, a prominent – if not a pre-eminent place – on the website of the American neo-nazi organization, Aryan Nations, until this year (2010) when the website was shut-down by its ISP for breaching their Terms and Conditions. Myatt the Muslim was known to have cooperated with the leader of Aryan Nations, August Kries, in his attempt to forge an alliance between neo-Nazis and radical Muslims.

As Myatt told Professor Michael in an interview in 2003 – parts of which interview were included in Michael’s book, The Enemy of My Enemy published in 2006,

” We should be aiming to create a world where there is a National-Socialist – or Aryan – society in a country such as America, and where there is a Khilafah in the Muslim world, with these two societies co-operating together for their own mutual advantage…

As for myself, I am committed to Folk Culture, which I understand to be the esoteric aspect of National-Socialism: what National-Socialism is evolving to become. “

Thus, in private, and to selected individuals, Myatt seemed happy to confirm that he was still at heart a Nazi; while, in public, from 2003 until at least 2009, he portrayed himself as a Muslim who had no political views, who had left his neo-nazi past behind, and who supported both bin Laden and the Taliban, and their campaign against the West, where by the term West, Myatt as Muslim meant the Magian controlled System, aka ZOG.

Meanwhile, Myatt had, throughout all his years as a Muslim, continued to write and issue National Socialist tracts, under the imprint of Reichsfolk, and although he often used the term Folk Culture in preference to National Socialism, one had only to substitute one term for other for his intent and real views to become clear.

His intent – clearly evident from all his writings for Reichsfolk, about Folk Culture, and more recently about what he calls The Numinous Way (Footnote 3) – is to create new societies, in Western Europe, America, and elsewhere.

It seems clear, therefore, that – despite Myatt’s many pubic denials – he regarded Islam as merely a useful and effective means in the world-wide struggle to overthrow ZOG (aka The Magian aka Jewish influence) and that his real interest lay in creating new societies based on ethnic tribes and clans.

Leaving Islam

By late 2009 it was becoming obvious that Myatt had become disillusioned with the cause of radical Islam. In an Addendum to the yearly Reichsfolk Situation Report (Footnote 4) dated 121 yf (that is, 2009), an anonymous author (clearly Myatt) wrote that,

” The situation in the Muslim world continues to deteriorate, with Magian forces, led by Amerika, intent on pursuing their campaign against freedom fighters in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

The pattern revealed in Iraq is set to be repeated – that is, the collaboration of many Muslims with the occupying forces, and the indifference of many others for whom the material benefits of the West seem to mean more than the reward of Jannah.

In addition, one has the corrupt regimes in Muslim lands – from Saudi Arabia, to Egypt, to Yemen, to Jordan, to Algeria to Pakistan – supporting Amerika and its allies, and many Muslims, in the West, collaborating with Western Police forces and intelligence services, and informing on fellow Muslims plotting against the West…..

With all this help, assistance, and collaboration, by Muslims – with the whole Muslim world divided – and with wrong tactics pursued by groups such as Al-Qaida, the prospects of Western forces being defeated in the near future by Jihadi Muslims seems slim…..”

There follows an analysis of the tactics of Muslim groups such as Al-Qaida, with the author concluding that attacks on “what the West terms civilians and civilian targets – however justified such attacks might be according to Quran and Sunnah – are and have been counter-productive, and reveal a basic misunderstanding of the psyche of the kuffar of the West.” The author goes on to state that attempts, by some Muslims, to change the tactics by concentrating on military, industrial and commercial, targets instead, seem to have failed, and that even if the tactics were changed, “the underlying and perhaps more serious problem of massive Muslim collaboration with Western forces and Western governments remain.”

It seems abundantly clear from this analysis that Myatt’s decision to leave Islam may well have been practical and pragmatic. That is, he no longer considered radical Islam – the Islam of the awakening, of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jammah as he calls it – an effective means of undermining and overthrowing what he calls The System, that is, the current governments of the West with their “Magian ethos”.

Just as, over a decade previously, Myatt seemed to have abandoned, for practical, pragmatic reasons, his tactics of trying to provoke a racial war through terror, in England, he now abandoned his support for the tactics of radical Muslims.

Instead, Myatt has turned toward building the foundations of the new societies required, having, in his own words,

“…concluded that we ourselves – native Europeans – were an integral part of the problem; that it was necessary for us to fundamentally change ourselves, and that this change had to arise from within each one of us, directly, numinously, and could not be achieved by the imposition of or the striving for some political, some social, ideology or by adherence to some pre-existing religious world-view.” (5)

His solution? A new living – numinous – tradition for “native Europeans” (i.e. Aryans) based on ethnic tribes and the principle of personal honour. For although Myatt no longer, it seems, directly uses the term race (the biological concept of race), it is quite clear that these tribes are or should be ethnic ones, given that he writes that a new and numinous culture can only arise from a community of “those whom one is ancestrally related to…”

Thus, instead of talking about, writing about, supporting and advocating – as he has done for nigh on thirty years – an outer political or revolutionary or even religious change, Myatt is now talking about, writing about, supporting and advocating, an inner, personal, and individual change. Changing people from within, by a numinous way, a living tradition and culture.

Hence, while his tactics may have changed over the decades and as a result of his own experiences and involvements, his overall aims have remained the same – the disruption and the replacement of what he terms the Magian status quo, and the emergence of a new type of human being, with these new human beings having forsaken the old way of nation States for his new way of tribal living.

Conclusion

It is my view that the evidence shows that Myatt remains a committed National Socialist and a fanatical anti-Semite, and that he has continued to support and propagate anti-Semitic views. (6)

He has simply moved from supporting and propagating what he calls “old style National-Socialism of the Third Reich”, to supporting and propagating the ethical National-Socialism of his own Reichsfolk organization, although this, allegedly non-racist, National-Socialism does seem quite removed, if not radically different, from the National Socialism of Hitler and the Third Reich, being no longer bound to the idea of a State, and no longer even nationalist. Which is why, presumably, Myatt now calls it the Numinous Way, the way of tribes, personal honour, and of a living, numinous, tradition.

Footnotes

(1) By Magian, Myatt and his followers – including those in the Occult group, the Order of Nine Angles – basically means Jews and Jewish influence. See, for instance, Myatt’s early work Vindex – The Destiny of The West (1984), and also his fairly recent essay The United Nations – The Sly Magian At Work, distributed by the ONA, where he, unsurprisingly, uses the Arabic term for Jews, Yahoud.

Interestingly, excerpts from Myatt’s Vindex are included in a video recently posted (May 2010) on youtube by neo-nazi supporters.

(3) The core of Myatt’s vast corpus of writings about this Numinous Way – a successor to his earlier Folk Culture philosophy, and nearly all of which writings were written while he was a Muslim, between 2003 and 2009 – are what he calls the virtue of personal honour, and the establishment of new communities, new societies, based on tribes and clans.

(4) Some of these “Not For Publication” Reichsfolk Situation Reports have been leaked and appeared in print, with several posted on the now deleted Usenet groups such as alt.politics.nationalism.white and one, dated 116-117yf, on the VNN neo-nazi internet forum, in 2005.

Дэвид Мьятт: Ислам и теория расовой борьбы

Дэвид Вулстон Мьятт (родился в 1950 г.) – британский общественный деятель, переводчик, писатель. С 1967 г. участвовал в британском неонацистском движении. Основатель и лидер влиятельнейшей британской ультранацистской фирмы “Combat 18”, известной своей тактикой городской террористической герильи, крёстный отец мирового хулиганс-движения, ветеран “Арийских Наций”. С момента основания возглавлял Британское Национал-Социалистическое Движение (NSM), был теоретиком арийской расовой войны (RaHoWa).

В конце 1960-х создал оккультный “Орден Девяти Углов” (“The Order of Nine Angles”, ONA), тайное ультраправое герметическое общество т.н. “традиционного сатанизма”, пора расцвета которого пришлась на 1980-1990-е гг. Мьятт прошёл тернистый путь духовных поисков, погружаясь в разное время в даосизм, буддизм, паганизм и христианство (принял монашеское послушание). В те годы Мьятт также изучал и переводил работы древнегреческих поэтов и драматургов Софокла, Эсхила, Гомера, Сапфо.

В 1998 г. Дэвид принял Ислам, взяв духовное имя Абдульазиз ибн Мьятт. А за год до того выпустил три книги: “Практическое руководство к Арийской Революции”, “Крестоносная война против Ислама” и “Сионистское стремление к мировому господству”. С момента обращения он не переставая работает на поприще сближения Новой Правой и протестных мусульманских сил: британских неонацистов и новообращённых радикальных мусульман. Сегодня он является деятелем международного антисионистского движения, развивает и пропагандирует теорию Джихада и террористической практики асассинов, “асассинации”.

Comment: Ислам, национализм, расизм – лишь средства для достижения Цели.

Myatt – German Wikipedia Article

Editorial Note: Given below is the main text of the article about David Myatt from the German edition of Wikipedia (inlcuding the references). Since it varies quite a lot from the article in the English edition of Wikipedia, it should be of interest to Myatt fans, Myatt critics, opponents of Myatt, and of course to MOACS everywhere.

Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt (* 1950[1] oder 1952[1]), vormals bekannt als David Wulstan Myatt[2][1] beziehungsweise David William Myatt,[3] ist ein britischer Islamist und früherer Neonazi. Vor seiner Konversion zum Islam im Jahre 1998 war Myatt Anführer des britischen National Socialist Movement (NSM) und ideologischer Kopf hinter Combat 18 (C18).[4] Er gilt als „Beispiel für die Achse zwischen Rechtsextremisten und Islamisten“[4] und eine der wichtigsten Figuren der englischen Neonazi-Szene seit den 1970er Jahren.[2] Er wird meist mit dem okkultistischen Flügel der Neonazi-Bewegung assoziiert.[2]

[Bearbeiten] Biographie

Vor Myatts Hinwendung zum Nationalsozialismus war seine Biographie eher unkonventionell:[2] Myatt wuchs als Kind in Ostafrika und dem Fernen Osten auf, nach eigenen Angaben stammen seine ersten Erinnerungen aus der Zeit in Tanganjika.[2]

Auf der Suche nach dem Modell hinter dem scheinbar zufälligen Weltgeschehen verbrachte er längere Zeit im Mittleren Osten und Ostasien und befasste sich mit westlichen Religionen wie Christentum und Islam und östlichen wie Taoismus und Buddhismus; dabei probierte er das Klosterleben in der christlichen wie auch der buddhistischen Form aus.[2] Im Alter von stieß er auf den Nationalsozialismus, speziell die Vorlagen solcher Mystiker wie Savitri Devi.[2] Myatts Geschichte gilt als typisch für Neonazis der 1960er-Generation.[2]

In den 1970er Jahren war Myatt fester Bestandteil der britischen nationalsozialischen Szene.[2] Er rechtfertigte den Nationalsozialismus mit dem Bezug auf die Natur, da „der arische Nationalsozialismus im Kern in Harmonie mit der Natur wirkt, um weiteren evolutionären Wandel hervorzubringen“.[5] Er war langjähriges Mitglied der Gruppierungen National Socialist Movement (NSM) und Combat 18 (C18); die britische Zeitung The Observer bezeichnet ihn als „ideologisches Schwergewicht“ letzterer.[4][6] Sein Pamphlet A Practical Guide to Aryan Revolution (1997) soll den britischen Neonazi David Copeland inspiriert haben, der 1999 für mehrere Bombenanschläge in London verurteilt wurde,[7] unter anderem einen Nagelbombenanschlag in der Schwulenkneipe Admiral Duncan in der Old Compton Street verübte, bei dem zwei Personen starben und dutzende von Menschen verletzt wurden.[8]

Zu seiner nationalsozialistischer Karriere zählen außerdem Haftstrafen wegen seiner politischen Aktivitäten und Konflikte mit dem britischen antifaschistischen Searchlight Magazine. Wegen seiner angeblichen okkulten Aktivitäten bezeichnete dieses ihn in der Einleitung jedes Berichts als „cat strangler“;[9] er selbst bestritt derartige Behauptungen und forderte jeden, der diese verbreitete, zum Duell heraus; er selbst liebe und respektiere Tiere.[9]

Myatt war der Anführer der Organisation Reichsfolk und publizierte die Magazine The National Socialist, Das Reich und Future Reich. Seine Essays wurden wiederveröffentlicht und auch über das Internet verbreitet. Er soll eng mit dem Order of Nine Angles (ONA), einem neonazistisch orientierten satanistischen Orden, kooperiert haben, und soll mit dessen Gründer oder zeitweiligem Anführer Anton Long[10][11][12][13][14] sowie Stephen Brown,[15] Algar Langton[15] und Christos Beest[9] personell identisch sein, was er jedoch bestreitet[9] und Jeffrey Kaplan für unwahrscheinlich hält.[9]

1998 konvertierte David Myatt zum Islam und nahm den Namen Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt an,[16] schrieb aber weiterhin neonazistische Texte, die auf den Seiten von Aryan Nations und White Revolution zu finden sind.[16] Nach einem Exposé des Searchlight Magazine über Reichsfolk und den ONA im Jahre 1999, in dem er als der gefährlichste Nazi in Großbritannien bezeichnet wurde, kündigten er und Beest an, in den Untergrund zu gehen.[9] Als Islamist lobt, verteidigte und rechtfertigte Myatt Osama bin Laden und Selbstmordattentate, die er als „Märtyreroperationen“ bezeichnet, so auch die Terroranschläge am 11. September 2001.[16] Unter dem Titel Are Martyrdom Operations Lawful According to Quran and Sunnah? schrieb er „eine der ausführlichsten Verteidigungen von Märtyreroperationen in englischer Sprache“;[16][17] die Hamas soll diesen auch zur Rechtfertigung eigener Aktivitäten herangezogen haben.[16][17] Myatt sieht eine Verbindung zwischen Nationalsozialismus und Islam,[16][5] speziell in der Judenfeindlichkeit rechtsextremer und islamistischer Gruppen,[5] und versucht diese zu verstärken.[16] Allerdings ist „die Ernsthaftigkeit von Myatts Übertritt zum Islam in Frage gestellt und bezweifelt worden, ob er immer noch Moslem ist“.[16]

Während Myatts Einfluss „ursprünglich weitgehend auf ein britisches Publikum begrenzt“ war, erfuhr er nach seiner Konvertierung größere Aufmerksamkeit in arabischen Ländern, und seine Schriften, die „einst als zu esoterisch und intellektuell betrachtet wurden“, finden sich inzwischen auf populären neonazistischen Internetseiten wie Stormfront, Aryan Nations und White Revolution.[5] Daran zeigt sich auch ein wachsendes Interesse an einem Bündnis mit Islamisten seitens der neonazistischen Szene.[5]

Дэвид Мьятт: Ислам и теория расовой борьбы

Дэвид Вулстон Мьятт (родился в 1950 г.) – британский общественный деятель, переводчик, писатель. С 1967 г. участвовал в британском неонацистском движении. Основатель и лидер влиятельнейшей британской ультранацистской фирмы “Combat 18”, известной своей тактикой городской террористической герильи, крёстный отец мирового хулиганс-движения, ветеран “Арийских Наций”. С момента основания возглавлял Британское Национал-Социалистическое Движение (NSM), был теоретиком арийской расовой войны (RaHoWa).

В конце 1960-х создал оккультный “Орден Девяти Углов” (“The Order of Nine Angles”, ONA), тайное ультраправое герметическое общество т.н. “традиционного сатанизма”, пора расцвета которого пришлась на 1980-1990-е гг. Мьятт прошёл тернистый путь духовных поисков, погружаясь в разное время в даосизм, буддизм, паганизм и христианство (принял монашеское послушание). В те годы Мьятт также изучал и переводил работы древнегреческих поэтов и драматургов Софокла, Эсхила, Гомера, Сапфо.

В 1998 г. Дэвид принял Ислам, взяв духовное имя Абдульазиз ибн Мьятт. А за год до того выпустил три книги: “Практическое руководство к Арийской Революции”, “Крестоносная война против Ислама” и “Сионистское стремление к мировому господству”. С момента обращения он не переставая работает на поприще сближения Новой Правой и протестных мусульманских сил: британских неонацистов и новообращённых радикальных мусульман. Сегодня он является деятелем международного антисионистского движения, развивает и пропагандирует теорию Джихада и террористической практики асассинов, “асассинации”.

National-Socialism and Islam: The Case for Co-Operation

blacksun23

Given below is a link to a pdf file issued by Reichsfolk, which outlines the case for co-operation between ethical National-Socialists and those Muslims opposed to the Zionist-Crusader alliance.

It appears that David Myatt wrote most – but not all – the documents in this file between 1998 and 2004 CE.
