Carlos [ aka Carlos the Jackal, the terrorist sitting in a French prison, who married his lawyer, who now runs around the world defending other terrorists ] also testified that the weapons used for the OPEC operation had been kept in an apartment in Frankfurt/Main, where Klein was then living with two other "red revolutionaries" of those days, Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Joschka Fischer.
After Carlos was arrested by the DST, German journalist Bettina Roehl (daughter of the late Ulrike Meinhof, co-leader of the terrorist Baader-Meinhof organization) revealed that Fischer did indeed belong to a Frankfurt/Main terrorist group during the 1970s. She also provided pictures showing a helmeted Fischer beating a German police officer during an April 7, 1973 [ he was about 25 years old at the time ], violent demonstration in Frankfurt/Main. The pictures show Fischer fighting side by side with Klein, Carlos's deputy in the 1975 attack on the OPEC headquarters in Vienna. In 2002, after these photographs had been authenticated by the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Fischer publicly apologized to the beaten police officer. Bettina Roehl also disclosed that Fischer had been the main advocate of using petrol bombs in a 1976 demonstration in which a policeman almost died of terrible burns. This information was also vehemently denied by the German foreign minister.
He was 54 years old when he apologized for beating a police officer after he had been found out.
A 1997 semi-official biography of Joschka Fischer, by Sibylle Krause-Burger, indirectly confirms that Fischer was also involved in hurling stones at West German authorities. These were not spontaneous demonstrations — they were all financed by the Soviet bloc foreign-intelligence community, including my own DIE when I was at its helm. Krause-Burger's book describes how, in a public debate held in 1974 with the Young Socialist functionary Kartsen Voight, Fischer defended throwing stones at the "representatives of the system" as being a legitimate defense against the tyranny of the (West German) government. It is significant that Voight is now responsible for relations with the U.S. in Fischer's ministry of foreign affairs.My point here is not to draw attention to what a horrible person Joschka Fisher was at 25, and in all likelihood still an evil human being at 55, but to illustrate two points. First, that his presence at the top of power in Germany is more evidence of their drift to socialism. Second, there were members of left-wing peace-groups, unions, what-have-you, who were directly controlled by Soviet intelligence (spies) and there were even more who through their membership and sympathy (so-called "useful idiots") aided and abetted the foreign policy goals of the Soviet Union (a country that deserves far more scorn than Germany). Enjoy the peace protests tomorrow.
