Falangist leader exhumed from Madrid war memorial

José Antonio’s tomb at the Valle de los Caídos

On the 120th anniversary of his birth, the remains of Falangist leader José Antonio Primo de Rivera are today being removed from his tomb at the Valley of the Fallen (Valle de los Caídos), a vast memorial to the dead of Spain’s Civil War. H&D‘s Isabel Peralta reported today from the scene of José Antonio’s reburial in Madrid (see video below).

Tributes have already been left at José Antonio’s new tomb at the San Isidro cemetery, adjacent to that of his sister and fellow Falangist Pilar (1907-1991)

José Antonio founded the Falange Española in 1933 in an effort to transcend petty factionalism and offer Spaniards a non-Marxist critique of capitalism:
“The National-Syndicalist State will not stand cruelly aloof from economic conflicts between men, nor will it look on impassively as the strongest class subjugates the weakest. Our regime will make class struggle totally impossible, since all those cooperating in production will constitute an organic whole therein. We deplore and shall prevent at all costs the abuses of partial vested interests, as well as anarchy in the workforce.”

In November 1936, aged 33, José Antonio was murdered by leftist assassins in the prison yard at Alicante. After the nationalist victory in 1939 his Falangist followers carried José Antonio’s remains 300km to the Escorial near Madrid, and in 1959 he was reburied nearby at the newly consecrated Valley of the Fallen, a huge cathedral carved out of a mountain, where Spain’s caudillo Francisco Franco was also buried in 1975.

For decades the Valley of the Fallen was a place of pilgrimage for Falangist veterans and Spanish nationalists from various factions, who were often joined on November 20th each year (the anniversary of both José Antonio’s murder and Franco’s death) by comrades from across Europe. H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton was part of BNP delegations to the Valley on several occasions during the 1990s.

The left-wing government in Madrid have for several years made clear their determination to desecrate José Antonio’s grave as an act of political spite. Last autumn they introduced new laws designed to criminalise aspects of Spanish history. One was designated a “democratic memory law” and the other was a new law against “anti-semitism”, which effectively means a law exempting Jews and Zionism from criticism.

José Antonio’s family surrendered to official pressure, and took the decision to go ahead with his exhumation and reburial of his remains at Madrid’s San Isidro cemetery.

H&D correspondent Isabel Peralta first wrote about the impending exhumation of José Antonio in Issue 110 of our magazine, and also made several videos discussing related issues (see versions below with English subtitles).

Isabel has recently been banned from Twitter but has a new website at www.isabelperalta.net with an English version at www.isabelperalta.net/english

Reports on the Spanish government’s attack on their own history will appear at these sites and here at H&D. Isabel also writes in the forthcoming edition of our magazine, which will be published at the start of May.

Leftists get a taste of their own ‘anti-terrorist’ medicine

Far left activists were outraged this week when a French Marxist publisher was arrested by London police under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act.

Ernest Moret was held for 24 hours after refusing to provide passwords for police to access his phone. He was released on bail yesterday evening.

Racial nationalists have known for many years that Schedule 7 gives UK police and border security officers extraordinary powers that would once have been seen as unconstitutional. Our own citizens as well as visitors can be detained on entering the country, and questioned for up to six hours.

Unlike any other arrest, those detained under Schedule 7 have no right to remain silent and are obliged to surrender their phones, computers and other devices, together with any relevant passwords. The authorities do not require any reason for detaining and questioning anyone under Schedule 7, and their questions can cover any subject.

H&D editor Mark Cotterill at the Saddleworth Hotel in the Australian Outback. This small town was built in the 1840s and named after the Saddleworth area in the Pennine hills of England, near Oldham. On returning from this trip, Mark was detained under Schedule 7 of the ‘Terrorism Act’.

Four of our H&D team have been detained under Schedule 7 in recent years. Editor Mark Cotterill has been stopped twice at Manchester Airport after returning from a non-political holiday to Mexico and a visit to H&D supporters in Australia. Assistant editor Peter Rushton was stopped at London Stansted Airport on returning from a visit to Germany. And last September our Spanish comrade and H&D writer Isabel Peralta was stopped at Manchester Airport, the night before speaking at our 2022 meeting in Preston.

Isabel’s case was especially outrageous because her computer and phone were retained for almost a week, without any justification, as part of a political ‘fishing expedition’ where UK authorities were liaising with political police and intelligence agencies in Germany and Spain.

Everyone at H&D understands that we have very limited rights under Schedule 7, but it seems that the far left is only now waking up to this reality.

In this week’s case, it seems likely that London police were cooperating with their Paris counterparts in an investigation of Ernest Moret’s involvement with protests against President Macron’s changes to French pensions.

Moret and a colleague were visiting fellow Marxists in London, associated with the well-known leftwing publishers Verso.

His fellow leftists at the Guardian and BBC, as well as the National Union of Journalists, were happy to publicise Moret’s case as some sort of outrage. Yet the same wokeists were perfectly happy when Mark, Peter and Isabel (who similarly have no connection to anything that could reasonably be called ‘terrorism’) were detained under the exact same law.

Why do Marxists assume that dictatorial laws will only be used against ‘racists’ and ‘fascists’, and that the far left is immune?

Fascism, Women and Democracy – by Mosleyite veteran Norah Elam

Many British publications and institutions – including the National Archives, British Library, and universities throughout the UK – are celebrating Women’s History Month.

But few are likely to mention the fact that Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists was supported by many of the women who had previously been active ‘suffragette’ campaigners.

Among them was Norah Elam (1878-1961) who was imprisoned in 1914 for her militant campaigning in favour of votes for women, and was interned at the same London prison – Holloway – in 1940 because of her active role in Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists.

Though she lived with fellow Mosleyite Dudley Elam (who was similarly interned without trial under the notorious Regulation 18b) and she took his name, Norah was never actually married to him, as she could not obtain a divorce from the husband she had married in 1909, so legally remained Norah Dacre Fox.

Alongside her prominent role in the women’s section of the BUF, Norah Elam was also a militant campaigner for animal rights and against vivisection.

Norah Elam, a leading activist in the women’s section of the British Union of Fascists

As part of H&D‘s contribution to Women’s History Month – and as a tribute to those women who continue to play important roles in the intellectual and practical leadership of racial nationalism – H&D is republishing online this essay by Norah Elam, first published in The Fascist Quarterly in 1935.

Fascism, Women and Democracy

“Experience shows that in all countries today democracy can develop its nature freely, the most scandalous corruption is displayed without anyone considering it of use to conceal its rascalities… Democracy is the land of plenty dreamt of by unscrupulous financiers.” – Georges Sorel, Reflexions sur la Violence.

To a genuine cynic who lived through the struggle for votes for women from 1906 to 1914, no spectacle is more diverting than the post-war enthusiast whose one obsession seems to be the alleged danger to enfranchised women in a Fascist Britain.

This unsuspected solicitude finds its most insistent champions in unlikely places, and those who were so bitter against the pre-war struggle have today executed a complete volte face. Our new-found patrons are second to none in their determination that women shall be denied nothing in principle, even if in practice they are to be denied most things essential to their existence.

To the woman who took part in that historic fight, and, regarding the vote merely as a symbol, believed that with its help a new and a better world might be possible, this kind of patronage is as distasteful as was that of a generation ago. She thinks, and with some justification, that it is humbug that those who in all those weary years never raised a hand to help her, but on the contrary were wont to describe her as an unsexed virago or a disappointed spinster, should in the hour of success endeavour to exploit her sex in the interests of a reactionary and decadent system. Such effrontery is possible only because those who resort to it entirely misunderstood and still misunderstand the meaning of that struggle, and construed the demand for political liberty as a desire for personal licence.

Two of Norah Elam’s suffragette comrades – Annie Kenney (a working-class woman from Oldham) and Christabel Pankhurst, a middle-class woman from Manchester who achieved a law degree but was barred from the legal profession.

The time has come when the principles which underlay that remarkable and determined manifestation for ordered change, not only in the position of women but in the accepted attitude to them, should be restated.

What was it then, which underlay the passionate stirring that moved the hearts of thousands of women, and guided their heads, in those stormy years? It was not, as so many imagined, the ignoble desire of individual sex-interest, nor a struggle on behalf of women for their own sex alone. On the contrary, from the leaders to the most humble of the rank and file it was the fundamental belief, that in a world peopled by men and women and under a political system controlling the destinies of both sexes, the country which shut out from its councils the influence, viewpoint and talents of more than half its people, would be to that extent handicapped in working out the best system of government. If men were the victims of chaotic economic conditions, women suffered with them. If the social conditions under which men dragged out an almost hopeless existence were intolerable, they were equally so for their womenfolk.

Looking round on the great cities of their land, from north to south and from east to west, they saw housing conditions which man and woman agreed were a disgrace to modern civilization; watching the labour market, they gazed with apprehension on the spectre of insecurity which haunts the wage-earner and which is inherent in the old system. In the political field, they noted that, both in Home and Foreign policy, affairs were being conducted in such a manner as to strike terror into the heart of any person who cared deeply for Britain or realized the decadence that had already begun its erosion upon all parties of the State. They rose to demand that women should be called in on equal terms with men, to lend a hand before it was too late.

This uprising was in short a challenge to the old antagonisms and a call for co-operation in the corporate body of the State.

Norah Dacre Fox in 1915: together with suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, the future Norah Elam was at this point a militant patriotic supporter of Britain’s war effort against the Kaiser’s Germany, though she later became an advocate of Anglo-German cooperation.

In this conception of practical citizenship, the women’s struggle resembles closely the new philosophy of Fascism. Indeed, Fascism is the logical, if much grander, conception of the momentous issues raised by the militant women of a generation ago. Nor do the points of resemblance end here. The Women’s movement, like the Fascist movement, was conducted under strict discipline, and cut across all Party allegiance; its supporters were drawn from every class and Party. It appealed to women to forget self-interest; to relinquish petty personal advantages and the privilege of the sheltered few for the benefit of the many; and to stand together against the wrongs and injustices which were inherent in a system so disastrous to the well-being of the race. Like the Fascist movement, too, it chose its Leader, and once having chosen gave to that Leader absolute authority to direct its policy and destiny, displaying a loyalty and a devotion never surpassed in the history of this country. Moreover, like the Fascist movement again, it faced the brutality of the streets; the jeers of its opponents; the misapprehensions of the well-disposed; and the rancour of the politicians. It endured the hatred of the existing Government, and finally the loneliness of the prison cell and the horror of forcible feeding. Its speakers standing in the open spaces and at the street corners were denied the right of free speech; it champions selling their literature spat upon and reviled; its deputations were manhandled. Suffragettes became the sport of any rowdy who cared to take the law into his own hands. To make the analogy the more exact, no calumny was too vile and no slander too base to set about the moral character of its leaders, or the aims and objects of the women who owed them allegiance.

Thus it came about that women welded together in such association had no illusions about political and party shibboleths, and when the sacred words “Democracy” and “Individual Liberty” were a commonplace on the lips of their detractors, they remembered that these things were done under a Liberal Administration, and by the champions of a Party which had made the democratic system the summit of its political wisdom. That under it, they were classed with criminals, lunatics and children. They argued and with some cogency, that if this were democracy then women had little to hope for from it.

Their experience as outlaws from the democratic system was as nothing compared with that which faced them, when they found themselves honoured citizens under its doubtful protection. They had earned, it is true, the right to individual liberty for a very brief space once every five years, but when they had put that fatal cross upon the ballot paper and closed the door of the polling booth behind them, from that moment they found themselves completely helpless before the democratic machine.

In 1914 militant suffragette Mary Richardson (1883-1961) was arrested for damaging a painting by Velázquez, the ‘Rokeby Venus’, at London’s National Gallery. She is seen here under arrest after this vandalism. Like several other ex-suffragettes, Mary Richardson later joined Mosley’s BUF, where she became head of the women’s section.

Though we shall be told that this was what we had fought for, a moment’s reflexion will show that this was regarded as but the symbol. Women never made the fatal error of imagining that because men voted they were necessarily free. It is the mark of the unintelligent woman today to suppose that a woman is free because she also votes, or that democracy can ever offer anything but the careful and organized exploitation of men and women who suffer it to exist.

Given the vote on a limited basis at the close of the War, women were also granted the right of entering Parliament, and the election in the late autumn of 1918 gave them their first opportunity. The Party system was already beginning to show the first signs of decay, and by the inexorable law of retributive justice, the Party which had given birth to democracy in Britain was in full retreat before its ungrateful offspring. Nevertheless, women in the first flush of their triumph turned to the then existing parties either as voters or prospective candidates.

Countess Markievicz (above), a supporter of IRA terrorism, became the first woman elected to the British Parliament. Despite having campaigned for women to have the vote, Norah Elam despised Markievicz and the IRA, and saw parliamentary democracy as a sham.

My own distrust of Party politics made me chary of turning in this direction, and I preferred to stand as an Independent, going down with all the other women candidates on this occasion, save one. The exception was the Sinn Fein Countess Markievicz, who though a notorious and avowed enemy of Britain, found it a perfectly simple matter under the democratic system to secure election to the Parliament of the country which she had openly boasted that she would destroy, disintegrate and discredit. She was, if I remember rightly, returned unopposed. The next example was hardly more encouraging, for the first woman to be elected for an English constituency was an American-born citizen who had no credentials to represent British women in their own Parliament, save that she had married a British subject who found himself forced to the Upper House on the death of his father. Detractors of the Women’s Movement pointed with a hardly disguised satisfaction to this denouement, and were at pains to hold up this lady as a sorry specimen of feminine irresponsibility. They need not have been so personal, for she was no better and no worse than any other woman elected to the British House of Commons, as a result of years of effort and struggle of the militant women. It is a sorry fact, though none the less true, that the subsequent election of Party women to Westminster has not made one tittle of difference either to men or to women, and though many able women have joined the ranks of our elected representatives their influence has been wholly negligible on the destinies of Britain or her Empire. They, like their men colleagues, are simply cogs in the Party wheels of the democratic system, marching into the lobbies at the crack of the Party Whip, helpless before the Juggernaut of the official machinery which rolls on, crushing all initiative and independence before it, and reducing every person who owes it allegiance to a mere cipher for the carrying through of its policies and its measures. And if this be true of Parliament – and who can deny it? – it is even more true of the woman voter. She, too, is caught up in this inexorable system, a veritable slave to her Party organization.

To those who challenge this, the question must be put: What power has the woman member or the woman voter, under the present system, to alter any one policy of any government yet elected? Does the most enthusiastic admirer of the present system allege that women, no matter to what party they belong, are satisfied with the existing position of this country?  Are they willing to see economic conditions whereby the employment figures have reached the incredible total of between two and three millions remain unchanged? Do they rest content with the spectacle of those derelict areas which strike despair into the heart of every living person? Are they indifferent to the decay of the agricultural districts and the plight of the farming industry and unconcerned with the appalling housing conditions which all parties alike deplore?

The British Union of Fascists strongly supported farmers driven into poverty during the 1930s by the imposition of tithes, a form of taxation by the church. This was one of many issues where Norah Elam saw women and men having a common interest in challenging a rapacious and unjust system.

Turning to the vast field of Imperial and Foreign politics, is it to be contended that the bulk of British women desire to see the disintegration of the Empire, or the orientation of the present foreign policy of the alleged National Government, whereby pacts and commitments are being made in their names and in secret with the avowed enemies of this country, while at the same time we are being left defenceless, not only for the purposes of our own immediate defence, but if the need should arise to honour those commitments? Do we indeed know to what we are being committed; what this policy of collective security involves, or what is the sinister power which dictates it? “Democracy is the land of plenty dreamt of by unscrupulous financiers,” says Georges Sorel. Have enfranchised women any power to check a Home or a Foreign policy dictated for the purpose of making that dream a living reality? Let it be remembered that when the time comes to foot the bill, we shall be driven as sleep to the slaughter, helpless before the results of these policies. What is the value of so-called freedom if it cannot give us the power to alter these momentous issues?

If it be true that the average woman voter wants none of these things, why, if she be free under the democratic system, does she permit them? If she possesses this freedom, is she not doubly and trebly guilty in suffering them for one hour longer? This is the test of her claim to a responsible part in the government of her country. If she has gained the necessary power and liberty under the existing system, the charge that she is incapable of playing a citizen’s part in the affairs of her country, and is in fact unfitted for responsibility, is proved up to the hilt.

None of these things is true. The truth will be found in the fact that there is no freedom either for men or for women under the present antiquated system. What fetters both men and women is that the Party system is in decay, and this is the more noticeable since the granting of adult suffrage under an unbridled democracy. Throughout the world the same decadence has set in, by the inevitable march of time and circumstance, the change from a world of poverty to a world of boundless plenty makes ordered planning not only requisite but vital to existence. Under these changes the methods of the old world are obsolete and must give place to the new. If women are to be worthy of their place in the councils of the nation, they must face as realists the new world conditions which are gathering round them. Sooner or later they must choose. The decision is momentous, for upon it will depend the status of women for a considerable period of time. It is therefore no light matter that they should weigh well in the balance the history of the world.

The future Lady Mosley, then Diana Guinness (above, second right) with her sister Unity Mitford and the children of her first marriage to Bryan Guinness. Her eldest son Jonathan (above, far right) became chairman of the Conservative Monday Club, and today is his 93rd birthday.

There are two courses open to women. The first is that she should struggle on with the decaying system of the old world, content to be the handmaid of the professional politicians of the various parties to which she attaches herself. Of this it may be said that she has given it a long and faithful trial, and that if under it she could have accomplished any practical change in the direction of social, political or economic freedom, she has lamentably failed. She must now consider whether the fault lies within herself or within the system to which she still clings. In this connexion she will note that the separate parties are themselves gradually disappearing. The Liberal Party has passed into the twilight of the past; the Conservative Party is in rapid disintegration, and we know upon the assurance of its own Leader, that there is no hope of its regaining its independence. The same fate awaits the Socialist Party, since it too must travel along the same road which has sucked the other two parties under the quicksand of Social Democracy.

She must therefore look for some better system; one more in accord with modern conditions. What is to take the place of the tottering edifice of the past?

Every student of politics realizes that the issue now lies between Fascism and Communism. So far as British women are concerned, Communism makes little appeal. To go no further, it is the philosophy of destruction, and is the negation of the natural instincts of womanhood. It is the antithesis of every principle and practice which women value and require.

Members of the BUF Women’s Drum Corps

Fascism seems to be the only solution. It has within it every principle peculiarly suitable and adaptable to the genius of the British character. It offers real freedom and liberty to all men and women of goodwill towards this country. Lest there should be any misunderstanding, we shall define these so often loosely-used terms, in words with which no democrat will quarrel, for they are taken from that apostle of unadulterated democracy, John Stuart Mill.

“The sole end,” he wrote, “for which mankind are warranted individually or collectively in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection. The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community against his will is to prevent harm to others.”

This is precisely the Fascist conception of individual liberty, and it is obviously a conception that so far as women are concerned gives them every opportunity that they can legitimately require in their future status as women citizens. In no other system are these principles embodied. Moreover, in the machinery of the Corporate State, Fascism assures women an equal status with their menfolk, for it holds within it the only means whereby they will be enabled to direct and control the conditions under which they shall live; thus Fascism alone will complete the work begun on their behalf by the militant women from 1906 to 1914. In addition, it will rescue them from the vitiated atmosphere of corruption inherent in the Party system, and for the first time it will give an opportunity, through the machinery of their own special Corporations, tackling with some hope of success those great questions which so closely concern their own and their children’s lives.

In the economic field it will assure security with equal pay for equal work, that eternal bone of contention which has rent the sexes asunder with such dire results to industry.

In the social sphere, it removes all class barriers, while in the political, it gives justice and equality for the first time in the history of the Women’s struggle.

And most important of all, Fascism comes to lay for ever the haunting spectre of war, by removing the fundamental causes, which exist and have their being in Internationalism, an instrument forged for the purpose of enabling “unscrupulous financiers” to take advantage of that “land of plenty” called “democracy” of which they dream.

To enable all this to be accomplished, Fascism will require that women equally with men should offer a disciplined cooperation in the welding together of an ordered State, and Fascism will rightly lay upon all the citizens of the State the responsibility and the duty of working in harmony, not in the interests of any section or class but for the benefit of all its people. It will call upon women as upon men, to subordinate all selfish individual privileges, that the less fortunate may under its protection be safe from exploitation.

This is Fascism. All else is mirage. Is it to be said that British women cannot rise to this great occasion in the history of their country? Those who would bid them reject this opportunity are the enemies not alone of women, but of all progress and of civilization. Those women who endured the ordeal of the great struggle of pre-war days have at least learned the right to challenge the people who once again would enslave them in the subjugation of the past, and fetter them within a system which denies them all opportunity to play an honourable part in the necessary reorganization of their country. British women have never failed or faltered when Britain has had need of them. They too, with the men of their generation, will raise aloft the banner of British Fascism, and bearing it high above the turmoil and sordid quarrels of the Party system, will hasten that day which shall see their nation reborn. In that triumphant hour, they will have truly earned the proud right to pay homage to a regenerated and Great Britain, and to rest at last within the Peace, Security and Prosperity of her Sovereign People.

Europeans mark two contrasting anniversaries

H&D‘s friends and comrades in Europe have marked two contrasting anniversaries in recent days.

In Dresden commemorations were held for the greatest crime of the Second World War – the terror bombing that destroyed this ancient city in February 1945. As discussed in a new article by our assistant editor Peter Rushton at the Real History blog, no one knows the true death toll at Dresden, partly because the city was packed with refugees who had fled from Stalin’s Red Army as it advanced into eastern Germany. Based on his detailed archival research, the British historian David Irving has estimated 135,000 deaths.

Dresden was the culmination of a deliberate policy of terror bombing – a deliberate decision to flout pre-war agreements (and to abandon the policies of the British government at the start of the war, maintained until Churchill took office).

Demonstration by Devenir Europeo, at the Winston Churchill park in Barcelona, draws attention to Churchill’s war crime at Dresden
Posters commemorating the destruction of Dresden were placed this week at universities and museums around Spain, including the Alcazar at Segovia (above).

The most famous British military historian, J.F.C. Fuller wrote in 1948:
“It may seem a little strange, nevertheless it is a fact, that this reversion to wars of primitive savagery was made by Britain and the United States, the two great democracies… With the disappearance of the gentleman as the back-bone of the ruling class in England, political power rapidly passed into the hands of demagogues who, by playing upon the emotions and ignorance of the masses, created a permanent war-psychosis.”

Fuller went on to acknowledge that as a consequence of the seizure of power in Britain by such “demagogues”, notably Churchill, “the obliteration of cities by bombing was probably the most devastating blow ever struck at civilisation”. Fuller wrote of “the moral decline which characterised the war.”

The Spanish nationalist group Devenir Europeo carried out a campaign of leaflets and posters targeting universities and military academies in an effort to raise awareness of the events of the Second World War and how they shaped our world. Our correspondent Isabel Peralta was very much involved in this campaign: she also marked this week’s other important historic anniversary.

This week H&D correspondent Isabel Peralta marked the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Krasny Bor, speaking at the memorial to the División Azul in Madrid.

In February 1943, 4,000 Spanish anti-communist volunteers – the División Azul (‘Blue Division’) – successfully fought off a vastly greater force of Stalin’s Red Army at the Battle of Krasny Bor, near Leningrad, allowing their German allies to regroup and maintain the Leningrad front.

Speaking beside the División Azul memorial at the Almudena cemetery, Madrid, this week, Isabel pointed out that her compatriots won at Krasny Bor not because they had greater numbers or greater weapons, but because they had greater faith in their cause – the noble ideals of the true Europe.

Spain is now at the front line of the struggle to maintain freedom of research and freedom of speech on historical and political questions. Under their new ‘democratic memory law’ some forms of historical revisionism are now illegal, although in other respects Spanish laws on ‘incitement of racial hatred’ are less restrictive than in the UK.

Isabel herself is presently facing trial in Madrid for a speech at an anti-immigration rally outside the Spanish Embassy last year.

El espía expuesto en sus propias palabras

El abogado madrileño Armando Rodríguez Pérez fue expuesto esta semana como un espía que opera dentro del movimiento nacionalista español y busca subvertir las redes antisionistas internacionales.

Ahora ha salido a la luz más información, extraída de la antigua cuenta de Twitter de este infiltrado.

Armando comenzó a infiltrarse en los círculos nacionalistas radicales a fines de 2020 y luego se convirtió en colíder de un grupo militante nacionalsocialista, Bastión Frontal.

Como se explicó en una investigación detallada a principios de esta semana, su historial anterior implicaba trabajar para un instituto académico incondicionalmente prosionista y antinazi. Ocultó este registro pasado de sus nuevos camaradas.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez con el político español sionista de línea dura Santiago Abascal

Ahora, el alcance del compromiso personal de Armando con la causa sionista puede revelarse en sus propias palabras.

Durante mayo-junio de 2017, al retuitear y comentar tuits de una cuenta oficial del gobierno israelí, Armando declaró públicamente su compromiso con la posición sionista de línea dura de “reunificar Jerusalén” como la capital judía.

El 27 de mayo de 2017, después de que una resolución pro-sionista de línea dura del Parlamento checo condenara a la UNESCO por sus críticas a Israel y respaldara a Jerusalén como la capital de Israel, Armando escribió que los checos habían dado un “gran ejemplo” y dijo a la cuenta del gobierno israelí: “Esperemos que otros muchos toman ejemplo de una vez”.

Diez días después, celebrando el 50 aniversario de la notoria agresión israelí conocida como la ‘Guerra de los Seis Días’, que resultó en la toma sionista de vastas extensiones de territorio de sus vecinos árabes, Armando tuiteó: “En mi opinión, el estudio de la La Guerra de los 6 Días y la reunificación de Jerusalén nos pueden ayudar a comprender muchas cosas: ¡brillante!”

Aunque la mayor parte de su antigua cuenta de Twitter está dedicada a su afición por el ciclismo, los tuits/retuits políticos reflejan una postura consistentemente militante pro-sionista y “anti-nazi” –curioso en un hombre que tres años más tarde se reinventaría a sí mismo como líder nacional- socialista y antisionista ‘radical’ que persigue vínculos con Irán.

Armando nunca en ningún momento explicó este curioso recorrido ideológico, y hasta ahora ninguno de sus nuevos compañeros había revisado su historial.

Si bien puede haber muchas razones (incluida la ironía) para retuitear algo con lo que no está de acuerdo, es obvio, visto en el contexto de sus propias palabras anteriores y su propio historial ya descrito en detalle en el artículo anterior, que Armando Rodríguez Pérez estaba retuiteando en celebración del anti-nazismo y el sionismo.

Por ejemplo, en los últimos meses ha sido un anglófobo declarado y enemigo de todo lo estadounidense, pero en el aniversario de 2017 del desembarco angloamericano del Día D en Normandía (6 de junio de 1944), Armando tuiteó para celebrar este golpe decisivo contra el Tercer Reich.

También retuiteó resoluciones anti-nazis y pro-sionistas como la siguiente del Parlamento Europeo.

Y en respuesta a los ataques terroristas en Egipto y Barcelona, las personas que Armando se dispuso a retuitear eran, por alguna razón, el Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Israel y el primer ministro extremista de Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Tomado de forma aislada, cualquiera de estos podría verse como algo único, provocado por el terrorismo islamista. Pero en conjunto (y teniendo en cuenta sus propios sentimientos sionistas extremos expresados anteriormente) podemos percibir a Armando Rodríguez Pérez como un antinazi comprometido y partidario de Israel que se dispuso a infiltrarse en grupos nacionalsocialistas y antisionistas.

Al hacerlo, ocultó sus verdaderas lealtades y antecedentes de su propia clienta, Isabel Peralta, y la traicionó cuando estaba de visita en Alemania durante 2022.

El espía ahora ha sido expuesto, y nuestro movimiento saldrá fortalecido de esta desafortunada experiencia.

The spy exposed in his own words

Madrid lawyer Armando Rodríguez Pérez was exposed this week as a spy operating inside the Spanish nationalist movement and seeking to subvert international anti-Zionist networks.

Now further information has come to light, drawn from this infiltrator’s own former Twitter account.

Armando first began to infiltrate radical nationalist circles at the end of 2020 and later became co-leader of a militant national-socialist group, Bastión Frontal.

As explained in a detailed investigation earlier this week, his past record involved working for a staunchly pro-Zionist and anti-Nazi academic institute. He disguised this past record from his new comrades.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez with the hardline Zionist Spanish politician Santiago Abascal

Now the extent of Armando’s personal commitment to the Zionist cause can be revealed in his own words.

During May-June 2017 – when retweeting and commenting on tweets from an official Israeli government account, Armando publicly declared his commitment to the hardline Zionist position of “reuniting Jerusalem” as the Jewish capital.

On 27th May 2017 after a hardline pro-Zionist resolution by the Czech Parliament had condemned UNESCO for its criticism of Israel and endorsed Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Armando wrote that the Czechs had set a “great example” and said to the Israeli government account: “Let’s hope that many others follow this example at once.”

Ten days later, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the notorious Israeli aggression known as the ‘Six Day War’, which resulted in the Zionist seizure of vast swathes of territory from its Arab neighbours, Armando tweeted: “In my opinion, the study of the Six-Day War and the reunification of Jerusalem can help us understand many things: brilliant!”

Though most of his old Twitter account is devoted to his cycling hobby, the political tweets/retweets reflect a consistently militant pro-Zionist and “anti-Nazi” stance – curious in man who three years later was to reinvent himself as a leading national-socialist and ‘radical’ anti-Zionist pursuing links with Iran.

Armando never at any stage explained this curious ideological journey, and until now none of his new comrades had checked up on his record.

While there can be many reasons (including irony) for retweeting something you disagree with, it is obvious when seen in the context of his own words above, and his own record already described in detail in the earlier article, that Armando Rodríguez Pérez was retweeting in celebration of anti-nazism and Zionism.

For example, in recent months he has been an outspoken Anglophobe and enemy of all things American, yet on the 2017 anniversary of the Anglo-American D-Day landings in Normandy (6th June 1944) Armando tweeted in celebration of this decisive blow against the Third Reich.

He also retweeted anti-Nazi and pro-Zionist resolutions such as the one below from the European Parliament.

And in response to terrorist attacks in Egypt and Barcelona, the people Armando set out to retweet were for some reason the Israeli Foreign Ministry and Israel’s extremist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Taken in isolation any one of these might be seen as a one-off, provoked by Islamist terrorism. But taken together (and bearing in mind his own extreme Zionist sentiments expressed above) we can perceive Armando Rodríguez Pérez as a committed anti-nazi and supporter of Israel who set out to infiltrate national socialist and anti-Zionist groups.

In doing so he disguised his true allegiances and past record from his own client, Isabel Peralta, and betrayed her when she was visiting Germany during 2022.

The spy has now been exposed, and our movement will emerge stronger from this unfortunate experience.

Anti-Fascist Spy Exposed

Madrid lawyer Armando Rodríguez Pérez, exposed today as an anti-fascist spy inside the nationalist movement.

A leading figure in several radical nationalist, national socialist and anti-Zionist groups in Spain can today be revealed as an undercover ‘anti-fascist’ agent. This exposé is also published at the Real History Blog and in German, in Spanish, in French, and in Italian.

Beginning in late 2020 and with increasing prominence since late 2021, Armando Rodríguez Pérez has led a double life.

One face of Armando Rodríguez Pérez is as a lawyer with an academic specialism in human rights, organising conferences with a strongly ‘anti-fascist’ theme, and sharing the Madrid office of a legal firm offering advice to German and English speaking clients in Spain.

The other face of Armando Rodríguez Pérez is as a radical leader of the ‘far right’, not only representing some of Spain’s most noted national socialists, but also taking an active role in leading their organisations, raising troubling questions about the extent to which he and his controllers may have crossed the line between infiltrator and agent provocateur.

During November-December 2022 Armando Rodríguez Pérez (recently using the online identity ‘Armando Renacer’ and previously ‘Armando Bastión’):
(1) became “political action secretary” for a new movement that represents the ‘National Bolshevik’ faction of Spain’s ‘far right’;
(2) infiltrated the circle of a British political activist and travelled to her home in Germany, where he met with several leading German national socialist activists;
(3) volunteered to act as liaison between a fugitive political dissident and the Iranian Government.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez on 26th November 2022 addressing a meeting of the new ‘Movimiento Pueblo’, his latest target for infiltration.

For more than a year until the group’s dissolution in the autumn of 2022, Armando Rodríguez Pérez was co-leader of a national socialist youth group, Bastión Frontal, and organised international connections with similar groups in France, Italy, Serbia, Poland and elsewhere.

And until today he was still acting as lawyer for the activist who attracted international media attention to Bastión Frontal, the 20-year-old student Isabel Peralta.

Yet Armando Rodríguez Pérez is not what he seems.


During the summer of 2020 – in the early months of the pandemic – Spain’s secret police (the CGI, roughly equivalent to the old British Special Branch, or what is now SO15) began to monitor the activities of a new national socialist youth group, Bastión Frontal, whose activities involved both opposing illegal immigration (especially immigrant street gangs) and drawing attention to the economic plight of many working-class Spaniards suffering under pandemic restrictions.

An 18-year-old history student at Complutense University of Madrid, Isabel Peralta, was first observed by the secret police at a Bastión Frontal activity in September 2020. She had previously been active in other Falangist groups but had become disillusioned by some of their reactionary and corrupt leaders. Isabel attracted international attention on 13th February 2021 when she gave a speech in tribute to the heroic anti-communist volunteers of the Blue Division (División Azul), who fought on the Eastern Front after 1941 against Stalin’s Red Army.

Isabel Peralta became one of Spain’s best known nationalists in February 2021: Armando Rodríguez Pérez had the task of infiltrating and undermining her national socialist youth group Bastión Frontal.

At the end of 2020, a 30-year-old lawyer named Armando Rodríguez Pérez suddenly appeared in ‘far right’ circles. He first turned up among football ultras in the tough Madrid district of San Blas-Canillejas, then gave a speech about the Blue Division’s war record at a meeting of national socialists with an interest in military history. He had no known past political activity, or indeed even the remotest connection to any form of nationalist movement. No one knew anything about him and no one checked up on him. For reasons that now seem mystifying, Armando was accepted as a comrade by various radical factions, each perhaps assuming that someone else had vouched for him.

Armando enhanced his credibility in such circles by latching onto Bastión Frontal after it had become the most visible face of Spanish radical nationalism, largely thanks to its co-leader Isabel Peralta.

Within a very short time he had emerged as one of the leaders of this national socialist youth group, partly because he was a few years older, and partly because he offered them free legal advice and even represented them in court without charge.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez introducing the historian José Luis Jerez Riesco at a meeting in November 2021 in Bastión Frontal’s Madrid headquarters. By this point Armando was effectively leader of Bastión Frontal because Isabel was temporarily resident in Germany.

Soon he was calling himself ‘Armando Bastión’ and making regular speeches at the group’s meetings, also acting as moderator for their online Telegram forum. After Isabel Peralta moved to Germany for a few months during late 2021 and early 2022, Armando Rodríguez Pérez established himself as effectively the leader of Bastión Frontal, especially after co-leader Rodrigo Miguélez was imprisoned. Armando represented both Rodrigo and Isabel in several criminal and civil cases.

During the autumn of 2022 Bastión Frontal collapsed, but Armando Rodríguez Pérez is continuing to represent Isabel in a long-running criminal case, where prosecutors are trying to jail her for a speech made at an anti-immigration rally outside the Moroccan Embassy in May 2021. He is also representing her in a continuing civil action that she has brought against the US-based Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Jerusalem Post.

Yet in both of these cases (and earlier legal problems relating to Bastión Frontal activists) Armando Rodríguez Pérez had a conflict of interest that made it grossly improper for him to act on behalf of such clients. While they are militant nationalists, national socialists and anti-Zionists, Armando Rodríguez Pérez has a long background (which he disguised from his new clients and ‘comrades’) working for an explicitly anti-fascist and anti-nazi academic foundation with close connections to Israel and international Jewish organisations.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez as a young lawyer working with the Berg Institute


Armando Rodríguez Pérez arrived suddenly in nationalist / national-socialist circles after a background of several years working with an important academic organisation that specialises in ‘Holocaust’ studies and other ‘anti-fascist’ themes, the Madrid-based Berg Institute (Instituto Berg).

He studied for a year at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His biography on the Spanish version of his former law firm’s website was later edited to remove reference to his time in Jerusalem, but an earlier English-language draft of the same page still includes this reference.

Armando’s master’s degree in “International Relations, International Law and Conflict Resolution” was undertaken jointly with Alfonso X el Sabio University, Madrid; the UN’s ‘University for Peace’; and the Berg Institute.

He went on to work as part of the Berg Institute’s ‘academic coordination team’ and took part in the Institute’s joint training programmes with the Colombian Army and security forces.

In other words Armando Rodríguez Pérez was not simply studying in Israel, or casually associated with the Berg Institute: he was actually an organiser and coordinator for several of their projects. This is especially disturbing when one looks in more detail at the content of the conferences that he organised.

Similar connections with the Berg Institute were shared with both of the close friends with whom in 2015 Armando Rodríguez Pérez set up a law firm in Madrid called GABEIRO – José Feliciano Beceiro Armada and Jesús Gavilán Hormigo. Gavilán studied in Jerusalem during 2014 alongside Armando, and worked for the Fundación Internacional Baltasar Garzón, named in honour of Spain’s most infamously left-wing, ‘anti-fascist’ judge. While Beceiro preceded Armando as organiser of the Berg Institute’s international conference.

A fourth lawyer who was part of this short-lived GABEIRO firm (Álvaro Domec López) was brought into Isabel Peralta’s criminal case by Armando in January 2022 – a fact that was completely unknown to Isabel herself until it was revealed in court documents.

Armando giving a television interview in his other role as a respectable young lawyer

It is necessary to look more closely at this Berg Institute, for which Armando Rodríguez Pérez acted as a coordinator / organiser before his sudden ‘conversion’ to the radical nationalist / national socialist cause.

There are many Jews in the world, and of course it would be ridiculous to assume that a lawyer is a Jewish agent if he simply had a passing connection with a Jewish client.

Armando’s connection is far more serious, especially when viewed alongside work with the police and military, and international work undertaken with the backing of this particular anti-fascist organisation.

Readers should bear in mind that Armando has never at any stage confided in his new comrades, in order to explain his political conversion. His past as the organiser of anti-fascist conferences was completely secret until revealed during this investigation.

A flyer for one of the Berg Institute Conferences organised by Armando Rodríguez Pérez


In 2014 and 2015, Armando Rodríguez Pérez was the organiser of two international conferences for the Berg Institute. These were very high-level events lasting in each case for a fortnight, starting in Madrid and moving on to several other European cities. The academic directors of the conference were the two co-directors of the Berg Institute, one of whom was Armando’s academic supervisor, Prof. Joaquin González Ibáñez.

These conferences were imbued with the ‘anti-nazi’ and anti-fascist ethos of the Berg Institute. On 23rd June 2014, the second day of the conference included a homage to an exhibition at the Museo Reina Sofía dedicated to the Picasso painting Guernica, the Spanish town bombed by the Condor Legion (a German force supporting General Franco’s Nationalists) in April 1937 during the Spanish Civil War, which has attained mythic, iconic status for anti-fascists.

A co-director of the Berg Institute gave a lecture to the conference titled ‘Colonialism, World Wars and the Holocaust’, then on 1st July (after the conference participants had visited the European Court of Human Rights), Armando organised a visit to the concentration camp at Natzweiler-Struthof in Alsace. This was the only such camp established by the German authorities on French soil, and is often described as a ‘death camp’. Controversially, there is claimed to have been a homicidal gas chamber at the camp, but only a primitive one supposedly used for occasional experimental killings, not the mass killings alleged at Auschwitz and other camps in Eastern Europe.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez organised two visits to the Natzweiler – Struthof concentration camp for the Berg Institute’s international conferences

The late revisionist scholar Prof. Robert Faurisson analysed this Natzweiler-Struthof ‘gas chamber’ story in detail. Faurisson discovered that even the scientific expert sent by French prosecutors to examine Struthof (Prof. René Fabre, Dean of the Pharmacology Faculty in Paris) concluded in December 1945 that there was no trace of hydrocyanic acid (i.e. the active ingredient in the alleged mass murder weapon ‘Zyklon B’, actually an insecticide) in Struthof’s alleged ‘gas chamber’. Neither did the corpses of allegedly ‘gassed’ victims that Fabre inspected in a Strasbourg morgue show any trace of this poison. Natzweiler-Struthof is thus unique among the alleged ‘death camps’ in having been inspected – not by a ‘revisionist’ but by an expert witness working for the new French government – and found not to have been used in the manner now described by the ‘Holocaust’ industry.

But none of this is mentioned by the Berg Institute, for whom the visit organised by Armando was simply a genuflection at a ‘Holocaust’ site. As with the trip to the Guernica exhibition in Madrid, this was an act of quasi-religious homage to the ‘victims of nazism’. As we shall see, the entire outlook of the Berg Institute is based on Holocaustian foundations.

The day after this act of homage at the ‘death camp’, the conference discussed the Nuremberg trials, which again are fundamental to the version of ‘international human rights law’ promoted by the Berg Institute.

A year later, in June-July 2015, Armando organised a second Berg Institute conference along very similar lines, again incorporating a visit to the Natzweiler-Struthof ‘death camp’. This time there was also a lecture by the academic lawyer Javier Chinchón from Madrid’s Complutense University, on the theme of historical memory and the state’s responsibility to ‘victims’. Chinchón argued that Spain had failed sufficiently to condemn the crimes of the Franco era: he has been one of the main academic lobbyists pushing for a strict ‘democratic memory law’ of the type recently adopted.

Armando’s present client Isabel Peralta has campaigned on the other side of this argument – but at no point has Armando admitted to her that he had himself been the organiser of academic conferences that actively promoted such a law; conferences that were thoroughly imbued with an ‘anti-fascist’ ethos seeking to ground the entire approach to ‘human rights’ in a politically-slanted approach to the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War.

In 2013 an earlier Berg Institute conference – run along similar lines to the two organised by Armando himself during 2014-2015 – was organised by Armando’s partner in the GABEIRO firm, José Feliciano Beceiro Armada. This included a reception hosted by the Colombian Ambassador. (Beceiro and Armando were both involved in the Berg Institute’s training sessions for the Colombian Army and Security Forces.)

Yet again, this conference concluded with a solemn pilgrimage to the ‘death camp’ at Natzweiler-Struthof.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez, young lawyer and Berg Institute conference organiser

Armando’s colleagues at the Berg Institute have continued to organise these conferences every year, when not disrupted by the pandemic. In 2019 the conference was held in Israel, in coordination with the Berg Institute’s longstanding academic partner, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It included visits to the ancient historic icon of Masada, where, allegedly, Jewish soldiers killed themselves in 74 AD rather than surrender to Roman forces that had besieged the fortress; to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset; and of course a pilgrimage to the Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem.

In January 2022 a similar international conference organised by the Berg Institute included a pilgrimage to Auschwitz.


The Berg Institute – for which Armando Rodríguez Pérez has worked and which was the co-organiser of his academic training – specialises in publishing the work of leading Jews in relation to the ‘Holocaust’, war crimes trials, and anti-Nazi activities.

Formally incorporated in 2009 as the Fundación Berg Oceana Aufklarung, its founder and co-director is Joaquín Gonzáles Ibáñez, a professor of international law and international relations at both the long-established Complutense University, Madrid, and at the much newer private university Alfonso X.

Interviewed in January 2019, Prof. Gonzáles explained that the Institute was partly inspired by his political hero Nelson Mandela, and stressed that its entire outlook on “human rights” was rooted in anti-fascism and anti-nazism:
“We always refer to the historic perspective, that probably the three worst legacies in the last centuries, the darkest hours, the darkest chapters, the most infamous moments in the last two centuries in world history were precisely created by Europeans. What I mean are the legacy of colonialism and fascism, all of them are European creations. So, Franco, Mussolini and Hitler and other historical characters are as European as van Gogh, Goya or Picasso. And in this program, we start with Auschwitz and we go to the Modern Art Reina Sofía Museum to encounter the Guernica from Picasso. And we have this tool, which is a legal approach, but also historical, political…”

Prof. Gonzáles went on to describe how his Berg Institute had created “the most important human rights library in the Spanish language.” This began in 2010 with Primo Levi’s Auschwitz Trilogy, which was “the cradle of the project, the first book of the collection, number zero, we were lucky to have the best departure point. …Going to Auschwitz hand in hand with Primo Levi, it shows you not just the past, but what are your main responsibilities towards planet earth.”

The Berg Institute and the Centro Sefarad Israel jointly organised this event promoting the memoirs of Raphael Lemkin, a Jewish lawyer who was a senior adviser at the Nuremberg trial and coined the term ‘genocide’.

At the time of this interview in 2019, the Institute had just published Totalmente Extraoficial, the memoirs of Raphael Lemkin, first published in English in 2013 as Totally Unofficial. Most famous as the man who coined the term ‘genocide’, Lemkin was a Polish Jewish lawyer who moved to the USA and became a special adviser to the US War Department. His 1944 book Axis Rule in Occupied Europe is regarded as a “foundational text in Holocaust studies”, and Lemkin went on to be the senior adviser to Robert H. Jackson, chief counsel to the Nuremberg trials.

The Spanish edition had 70 extra pages drawn from Lemkin’s archive and a prologue by the Spanish writer Antonio Muñoz Molina, a winner of the Jerusalem Prize who now resides in New York. Muñoz also wrote an introduction to the Berg Institute’s 2019 Spanish edition of the memoirs of Europe’s most famous militant “nazi-hunters”, Serge and Beate Klarsfeld (first published in French in 2015 and in English in 2018 as Hunting the Truth: Memoirs of Beate and Serge Klarsfeld). The video below shows an event jointly organised by the Berg Institute and a Jewish cultural centre in Madrid – Centro Sefarad Israel – paying tribute to the Klarsfelds.

It’s now known that the Klarsfelds worked on a regular basis with the communist East German secret police – the Stasi – to demonise Western politicians as “nazis” and stage “anti-nazi” propaganda stunts. They organised many secret operations against national socialist veterans and “neo-nazis” and in 1974 were convicted and given two-month jail sentences (later suspended) for the attempted kidnapping of former SS intelligence officer Kurt Lischka.

The Klarsfelds’ most famous achievements include tracking down former Gestapo officer Klaus Barbie and having him deported from Bolivia to France for trial, and campaigning for the prosecution of retired French police chief Maurice Papon. They also tracked down René Bousquet, a former civil servant in the French government of Philippe Pétain in Vichy. Bousquet was murdered before he could stand trial.

On several occasions the Klarsfelds tried to track down Alois Brunner, a former Third Reich official who lived in Damascus after the war: Beate Klarsfeld even undertook an undercover mission to Syria, where she was briefly jailed.

Since the late 1970s one of the Klarsfelds’ main targets was the French revisionist scholar Prof. Robert Faurisson. They campaigned for his prosecution, testified at his trials, and organised anti-revisionist propaganda in many countries. They have also been active in campaigns against many different varieties of modern-day nationalist politicians, even those such as Marine Le Pen who painstakingly distance themselves from racialism, historical revisionism and ‘anti-semitism’.

The Klarsfelds are highlighted by Berg Institute founder Gonzáles as among his main inspirations, as is Fritz Bauer, the German Jewish judge who was responsible for alerting Israel’s intelligence service Mossad to the whereabouts of Adolf Eichmann, allowing them to begin the operation that ended in his kidnapping from Buenos Aires and subsequent trial and execution. Bauer also led the prosecution at the Frankfurt Auschwitz trial that began in 1963, and was the most important ‘Holocaust’-related trial after that of Nuremberg. The Berg Institute worked with the Fritz Bauer Institute to create a “Human Rights Film Award” in joint honour of Fritz Bauer and Raphael Lemkin.

German-Jewish judge Fritz Bauer is another hero of ‘Holocaust’ history venerated by the Berg Institute

Prof. Gonzáles has said that, while building the Institute, he “personally dreamt of my heroes, Lemkin, Primo Levi, of course, Klarsfeld and finally, Fritz Bauer. …Also, we are working in something special about the Civil War in Spain and the post-civil war and the trauma and the punitive and infamous legacy of Franco´s dictatorship and the luck of a democratic response during the last 40 years of Spanish democracy. We didn’t have in Spain any agenda designed when the Spanish transition unfolded on how to address the human rights violations and crimes of Franco’s dictatorship from 1939 to 1975. Probably few people thought about this necessary scenario.”

In other words, Prof. Gonzáles addresses the failure to institutionalise “anti-fascism” in post-Franco Spain. This deficiency was remedied in 2022 with the “democratic memory law” which demonises Spanish nationalism and enshrines communists and anti-fascists as heroes, and by an accompanying “anti-semitism” law that effectively criminalises criticism of Judaism and many forms of Holocaust revisionism.

Other books published by the Berg Institute include:
– The Spanish edition of Deborah Lipstadt’s El juicio de Eichmann (2019): first published in English in 2011 as The Eichmann Trial.
– The Spanish edition of the memoirs of Richard Sonnenfeldt, a German-Jewish intelligence officer who was personal interpreter to Gen. William Donovan, head of the OSS (precursor to the CIA), and chief interpreter to the US prosecution team at the Nuremberg trials; these memoirs were published in Spanish by the Instituto Berg in 2018 as Testigo en Núremberg; first published in English in 2006 as Witness to Nuremberg.
– A book about American neo-nazis by Aryeh Neier, a German-Jewish lawyer who served for twenty years as president of George Soros’s ‘philanthropic’ network, the Open Society Institute; in the Instituto Berg’s Spanish edition (2020) this book is called Defendiendo a mi enemigo; first published in English in 1979 as Defending My Enemy: American Nazis in Skokie, Illinois, and the Risks of Freedom.
– The memoirs of Sari Nusseibeh, a highly controversial Palestinian seen by many of his countrymen as a traitor because he advocates giving up the Palestinians’ right of return in exchange for unspecified ‘peace’ deals with Israel; Nusseibeh co-founded a joint initiative in 2002 with Ami Ayalon, former head of the Israeli security service Shin Bet; the memoir was published by Instituto Berg in 2020 as Érase una vez un país: una vida palestina (first published in English in 2007 as Once Upon a Country: A Palestinian Life).
El juicio del Káiser, by the Canadian Jewish academic William Schabas, a history of the attempt to put German Kaiser Wilhelm II on trial for ‘war crimes’ after the First World War; this Spanish edition was published in 2020; the first English edition in 2018 was titled The Trial of the Kaiser; much of Schabas’s work focuses on the development of human rights law in the context of the ‘Holocaust’ and the Nuremberg trial, though he has sometimes been controversial for his association with the Israeli left-wing and his criticisms of the Netanyahu governments.
The memoirs of Telford Taylor, an American lawyer and intelligence officer most famous for his role as chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg trial. This was published by Instituto Berg in 2022 as Anatomía de los juicios de Núremberg, and first published in English in 1992 as The Anatomy of the Nuremberg Trials: A Personal Memoir.
Justicia Imperfecta by Stuart Eizenstat, published by Instituto Berg in 2019, first published in 2009 as Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II. This is an account of Eizenstat’s role during the 1990s in attempts to obtain financial compensation for Jewish families whose properties, belongings or bank accounts had allegedly been confiscated or otherwise lost during the ‘Holocaust’. Since 2013 he has been the US State Department’s “Special Adviser for Holocaust Issues”, appointed to that role by Hillary Clinton.

One of numerous books on ‘Holocaust’ history published by the Berg Institute is a Spanish translation of the memoirs of Nuremberg chief prosecutor Telford Taylor.

It really could not be clearer that the Berg Institute is one of Spain’s leading academic promoters of ‘Holocaust’ studies and is imbued with an anti-fascist and ‘anti-nazi’ ethos. Meanwhile the Berg Institute alumnus Armando Rodríguez Pérez has portrayed himself for the past two years as a militant fascist, national socialist, or national bolshevik: sometimes a Carlist, sometimes a Falangist, sometimes a pro-Franco advocate of an integral Spanish nation, sometimes promoting separatist schemes. While switching switching between factions, Armando has closely associated himself with militant wings of the Spanish ‘far right’. Not only did he act as a lawyer for the leading figures in the now defunct national socialist youth group Bastion Frontal, but he inserted himself into its leadership.


In recent months the mission of the anti-fascist infiltrator Armando Rodríguez Pérez has been extended. He has sought to become ever closer to Juan Antonio Llopart, a veteran radical nationalist and publisher. Armando portrays himself as a militant anti-Zionist seeking to liaise with the Iranian government and its allies.

He is now listed as ‘political action secretary’ to Llopart’s new organisation Movimiento Pueblo, which is seeking to register as a political party in time for the 2023 local elections. At a recent Madrid conference that he helped Llopart to organise, Armando met for the first time the British activist Lady Michèle Renouf, who naturally enough assumed that he was a bona fide nationalist and anti-Zionist. During the weekend of 2nd-4th December 2022, Armando attended a small gathering at Lady Renouf’s second home in the German countryside, where fellow guests included some well known figures on the German national socialist scene. Good news for the anti-fascist infiltrator Armando, who will have picked up intelligence and made what he hopes will be useful contacts. Those involved are now being warned as to Armando’s true allegiances, and we hope that the damage will be minimised.

During 2021 Armando Rodríguez Pérez infiltrated reactionary as well as radical ‘right-wing’ groups: here he is seen promoting the ultra-conservative group Resiste España, but simultaneously he worked with radical groups and even separatists who are the diametric opposite of Resiste España’s politics.

These British and German connections have already allowed Armando Rodríguez Pérez to insinuate himself into a scheme to obtain Iranian assistance for a political fugitive wanted by the German authorities. We are fully informed about this plan, but for obvious reasons are not yet reporting the full details. Steps are being taken to minimise the damage that the anti-fascist infiltrator Armando Rodríguez Pérez can cause – though of course it’s not yet known whether his intention is to sabotage the rescue of this dissident, or to use the entire affair in order to ingratiate himself with Iranian networks and perhaps infiltrate them on behalf of Israeli interests.

What is certain is that Armando Rodríguez Pérez is bad news for nationalists, national socialists, revisionists and anti-Zionists. Several of his inconsistent ideological positions seem to have been adopted with the primary intention of weakening and dividing the radical nationalist movement, both within Spain and internationally.

In January this year when Madrid police were attempting to track down Isabel Peralta (who was at the time temporarily resident in Germany) they were telephoned by a lawyer called Alvaro Domec who claimed to be Isabel’s legal representative. In fact she had never met him, never corresponded with him, and never heard of him, but court papers in her ongoing trial for the May 2021 speech outside the Moroccan Embassy continue to present Domec as having been her lawyer.

For unknown reasons, none of the police and prosecution files relating to the investigation of Isabel Peralta and Bastión Frontal mention Armando Rodríguez Pérez. Moreover, despite the anti-fascist and mainstream media’s intense interest in Bastión Frontal, which was portrayed for much of 2021-2022 as a particularly dangerous and violent ‘neo-nazi’ organisation, no journalist and no ‘anti-fascist’ ever exposed its co-leader ‘Armando Bastión’ as being the outwardly respectable Madrid lawyer Armando Rodríguez Pérez. It is worth mentioning that the legal action brought by Isabel against the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Jerusalem Post, in which Armando is acting as her legal representative, has twice been extended since no response had been received by the plaintiffs within the required deadline.

Equally mysterious was Armando’s own reticence during March 2022, when his client Isabel Peralta was detained at Frankfurt Airport and questioned, before being expelled from Germany in what appears to be a potentially illegal deportation; and in October 2022 when she was again detained by German police in Hessen and served with an exclusion order. On both occasions she was badly in need of a reliable German lawyer, but Armando gave every impression that he had no German contacts who could help.

Isabel Peralta addressing an anti-immigration rally organised by Bastión Frontal outside the Moroccan Embassy in May 2021: Armando Rodríguez Pérez was a co-leader of the group and was Isabel’s defence lawyer in a criminal trial resulting from this speech – yet he is also an anti-fascist spy – an obvious conflict of interest that should see the prosecution scrapped.

At the time of Isabel’s March arrest in Frankfurt, it was the assistant editor of Heritage & Destiny, Peter Rushton – not her Madrid lawyer Armando Rodríguez Pérez – who made contact with an experienced German lawyer from Berlin, Wolfram Nahrath, and asked him to represent Isabel, which he did.

This was then used six or seven months later by the German authorities as ‘evidence’ that Isabel herself had ‘high-level connections’ with ‘German political extremists’.

Completely unknown to Isabel, her Spanish lawyer Armando actually has particularly close associations with German lawyers, a fact that he had studiously avoided mentioning to her. In fact his legal office in Madrid (C. de Serrano, 79, 7d), which was at one time the office of his defunct firm GABEIRO, now operates as the Madrid branch of a legal firm called Strafverteidiger Spanien. This firm has a German name, even though it is based in Barcelona and also has a branch in the tourist resort town of Palma de Mallorca.

The firm is headed by Armando’s friend and colleague María Barbancho Saborit, and specialises in representing German-speaking clients in need of legal representation in Spain, including people accused of financial crimes and/or facing European arrest warrants.

Ms Barbancho Saborit seems to be of part-German ancestry, and was educated at the Deutsche Schule in Barcelona, before spending part of her university course at Heidelberg. There is no suggestion that Ms Barbancho Saborit is necessarily party to or even aware of Armando’s double life inside European national socialist movements. She is qualified in both Spanish and German law.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez leaving court in Madrid with his client Isabel Peralta in March 2022, after a hearing of her case against the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Jerusalem Post. Again, the anti-fascist spy Armando’s conflict of interest was not disclosed to his client.


The infiltration mission of Armando Rodríguez Pérez as a spy within radical nationalist and national socialist circles raises serious questions about the Spanish justice system.

How can it be right for an infiltrator to act as the legal representative for someone accused of political crimes, when unbeknown to his client, the lawyer concerned has a long record of association with completely opposed political ideas?

Naturally it is possible for a lawyer to represent someone whose views he does not share. But in this case Armando Rodríguez Pérez pretended to share those views – in fact acted as a leader of the political groups concerned as well as lawyer for their activists – while actually having a longstanding allegiance to opposing forces.

It is urgently necessary for the present prosecution of Isabel Peralta to be abandoned, and for the Spanish secret police and prosecutors to explain just how much they know about the real agenda of Armando Rodríguez Pérez.

Meanwhile we shall continue to work with those in nationalist, national socialist, revisionist and anti-Zionist movements in various countries in an effort to minimise and repair the damage inflicted by Armando Rodríguez Pérez.

As Friedrich Nietzsche wrote more than a century ago: Aus der Kriegsschule des Lebens – Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich stärker. “From the military school of life – What fails to kill me, makes me stronger.”


El abogado madrileño Armando Rodríguez Pérez, expuesto hoy como espía antifascista dentro del movimiento nacionalista.

Una figura destacada de varios grupos nacionalistas radicales, nacionalsocialistas y antisionistas en España se revela hoy como un agente “antinazi” encubierto.

Desde finales de 2020 y con creciente protagonismo desde finales de 2021, Armando Rodríguez Pérez lleva una doble vida.

Una cara de Armando Rodríguez Pérez es la de abogado con especialización académica en derechos humanos, organizando congresos con una temática fuertemente ‘antifascista’ y dirigiendo la oficina de Madrid de un despacho de abogados que ofrece asesoramiento a clientes de habla alemana e inglesa en España.

La otra cara de Armando Rodríguez Pérez es la de un líder radical de la ‘extrema derecha’, que no solo representa a algunos de los nacionalsocialistas más notorios de España, sino que asume un papel activo en la dirección de sus organizaciones, lo que genera preguntas inquietantes sobre hasta qué punto él y sus controladores han cruzado la línea de infiltrado a agente provocador.

Durante noviembre y diciembre de 2022 Armando Rodríguez Pérez ha realizado las siguientes acciones:
(1) ha asumido un papel de liderazgo en un nuevo movimiento que represente a la facción ‘Bolchevique Nacional’ de la ‘extrema derecha’ de España;
(2) se infiltró en el círculo de una activista política británica y viajó a su casa en Alemania, donde se reunió con varios destacados activistas nacionalsocialistas alemanes días antes de la desarticulación del supuesto golpe anti democrático;
(3) se ofreció como voluntario para actuar como enlace entre un disidente político fugitivo y el gobierno iraní.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez el 26 de noviembre de 2022 dirigiéndose a una reunión del nuevo ‘Movimiento Pueblo’, su último objetivo de infiltración.

Durante más de un año, hasta la disolución del grupo hace dos meses, Armando Rodríguez Pérez fue colíder de un grupo juvenil nacionalsocialista, Bastión Frontal, y organizó conexiones internacionales con grupos similares en Francia, Italia, Serbia, Polonia y otros lugares.

Y hasta hoy seguía actuando como abogado de la activista que llamó la atención de los medios internacionales sobre Bastión Frontal, la estudiante de 20 años Isabel Peralta.

Sin embargo, Armando Rodríguez Pérez no es lo que parece.


Durante el verano de 2020, en los primeros meses de la pandemia, la policía secreta de España (la CGI, más o menos equivalente a la antigua Brigada Especial Británica, o lo que ahora es SO15) comenzó a monitorear las actividades de un nuevo grupo de jóvenes nacionalsocialistas, Bastión Frontal, cuyas actividades consistieron tanto en oponerse a la inmigración ilegal (especialmente a las pandillas callejeras de inmigrantes) como en llamar la atención sobre la difícil situación económica de muchos españoles de clase trabajadora que sufren las restricciones de la pandemia.

Una estudiante de historia de 18 años de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Isabel Peralta, fue observada por primera vez por la policía secreta en una actividad de Bastión Frontal en septiembre de 2020. Anteriormente había estado activa en otras actividades falangistas, pero se habían desilusionado con algunos de sus líderes y su desviación política con respecto a los puntos del ideario original. Isabel atrajo la atención internacional el 13 de febrero de 2021 cuando pronunció un discurso en homenaje a los heroicos voluntarios anticomunistas de la División Azul, que lucharon en el Frente Oriental después de 1941 contra el Ejército Rojo de Stalin.

Isabel Peralta se convirtió en una de las nacionalistas más conocidas de España en febrero de 2021: Armando Rodríguez Pérez tenía la tarea de infiltrar y socavar su grupo juvenil nacionalsocialista Bastión Frontal.

A fines de 2020, Armando Rodríguez Pérez, un abogado de 30 años, apareció repentinamente en los círculos de la “ultraderecha”. Primero apareció entre los ultras del fútbol en el duro barrio madrileño de San Blas-Canillejas como mano derecha de uno de los principales líderes Hooligan del país, A. Ayala, luego pronunció un discurso sobre el historial militar de la División Azul en una reunión de nacionalsocialistas interesados en la historia militar. No tenía antecedentes de actividad política radical, ni siquiera la más remota conexión con cualquier forma de movimiento nacionalista más allá de una asociación vecinal cuus involucra como coincide con las mismas fechas que sus primeros pasos junto a la sección de Canillejas. Nadie sabía nada de él y nadie comprobaba su buena fe. Por razones que ahora parecen desconcertantes, Armando fue aceptado como camarada por varias facciones radicales, cada una de las cuales quizás asumió que alguien más había respondido por él.

Armando mejoró su credibilidad en esos círculos al aferrarse a Bastión Frontal después de que se había convertido en la cara más visible del nacionalismo radical español, en gran parte gracias a su co-líder, Isabel Peralta.

En muy poco tiempo se había convertido en uno de los líderes de este grupo de jóvenes nacionalsocialistas, en parte porque era unos años mayor y en parte porque les ofrecía asesoramiento legal gratuito e incluso los representaba en los tribunales sin cargo.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez presentando al historiador José Luis Jerez Riesco en una reunión en noviembre de 2021 en la sede de Bastión Frontal en Madrid. En este punto, Armando era efectivamente líder de Bastión Frontal porque Isabel residía temporalmente en Alemania.

Pronto comenzó a llamarse a sí mismo ‘Armando Bastión’ y hacía discursos regulares en las reuniones del grupo, y también actuaba como moderador de su foro en línea de Telegram. Después de que Isabel Peralta se mudara a Alemania por unos meses a fines de 2021 y principios de 2022, Armando Rodríguez Pérez se estableció como líder efectivo de Bastión Frontal, especialmente después de que el colíder Rodrigo Miguélez fuera encarcelado. Armando representó a Rodrigo e Isabel en varios casos penales y civiles.

Durante el otoño de 2022, Bastión Frontal colapsó en gran medida por el interés manifiesto del mismo en su disolución, pero Armando Rodríguez Pérez continúa representando a Isabel en un caso penal de larga duración, donde los fiscales intentan encarcelarla por un discurso pronunciado en un mitin contra la inmigración frente a la Embajada de Marruecos en mayo de 2021. Él también la representa en una acción civil continua que ella ha iniciado contra el Centro Simon Wiesenthal con sede en los Estados Unidos y el Jerusalem Post. A Rodrigo Miguélez le representa en un delito de supuestas lesiones el cual hace semanas fue archivado por, supuestamente, falta de pruebas. También representa a varios jóvenes de la organización entre los que destaca uno de los jóvenes más activos y respetados, por unos altercados acontecidos en una acción frente a la embajada marroquí.

Sin embargo, en ambos casos (y en problemas legales anteriores relacionados con los activistas de Bastión Frontal), Armando Rodríguez Pérez tenía un conflicto de intereses que hacía que actuara en nombre de tales clientes fuera sumamente inapropiado. Si bien eran militantes nacionalistas, nacionalsocialistas y antisionistas, Armando Rodríguez Pérez tiene una larga trayectoria (que ocultó a sus nuevos clientes y ‘camaradas’) trabajando para una fundación académica explícitamente antifascista y antinazi con estrechos vínculos con Israel y organizaciones judías internacionales.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez como un joven abogado que trabaja con el Instituto Berg


Armando Rodríguez Pérez llegó repentinamente a los círculos nacionalistas / nacionalsocialistas después de varios años trabajando con una importante organización académica que se especializa en estudios del ‘Holocausto’ y otros temas ‘antifascistas’, el Instituto Berg con sede en Madrid.

Estudió durante un año en la Universidad Hebrea de Jerusalén. Su biografía en la versión en español del sitio web de su antiguo bufete de abogados se editó más tarde para eliminar la referencia a su tiempo en Jerusalén, pero un borrador anterior en inglés de la misma página todavía incluye esta referencia.

El máster de Armando en “Relaciones Internacionales, Derecho Internacional y Resolución de Conflictos” se realizó conjuntamente con la Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio, Madrid; la ‘Universidad para la Paz’ de la ONU; y el Instituto Berg.

Luego pasó a trabajar como parte del ‘equipo de coordinación académica’ asumiendo él mismo dicho papel de liderazgo del Instituto Berg y participó en los programas de capacitación conjunta del Instituto con el Ejército y las fuerzas de seguridad de Colombia.

En otras palabras, Armando Rodríguez Pérez no estaba simplemente estudiando en Israel, o asociado casualmente con el Instituto Berg, en realidad era un organizador y coordinador de varios de sus proyectos. Esto es especialmente inquietante cuando uno mira con más detalle el contenido de las conferencias que organizó.

Similares lazos con el Instituto Berg compartieron los dos íntimos con los que en 2015 Armando Rodríguez Pérez montó un despacho de abogados en Madrid llamado GABEIRO – José Feliciano Beceiro Armada y Jesús Gavilán Hormigo. Gavilán estudió en Jerusalén durante 2014 junto con Armando, y trabajó para la Fundación Internacional Baltasar Garzón, nombrada en honor al juez ‘antifascista’ de izquierda más infame de España. Mientras que Beceiro precedió a Armando como organizador de la conferencia internacional del Instituto Berg.

Un cuarto abogado que formó parte de esta efímera firma GABEIRO en Madrid (Álvaro Domec López) fue incluido en el caso penal de Isabel Peralta por Armando en enero de 2022, un hecho que la propia Isabel desconocía por completo hasta que se reveló en los documentos judiciales.

Armando dando una entrevista televisiva en su otro papel como un respetable joven abogado

Hay que mirar más de cerca a este Instituto Berg, del que Armando Rodríguez Pérez actuó como coordinador/organizador antes de su súbita ‘conversión’ a la causa nacionalista radical/nacionalsocialista.

Hay muchos judíos en el mundo y, por supuesto, sería ridículo suponer que un abogado es un agente judío si simplemente tuviera una conexión pasajera con un cliente judío.

La conexión de Armando es mucho más seria, especialmente cuando se ve junto con el trabajo con la policía y el ejército, y el trabajo internacional realizado con el respaldo de esta organización antifascista en particular.

Los lectores deben tener en cuenta que Armando nunca en ningún momento ha confiado en sus nuevos camaradas, explicando su conversión política. Tan sólo ha dado a determinados hombres concretos una pequeña pincelada para, según el dicho popular en españa “curarse en salud”. Su pasado como organizador de conferencias antifascistas fue completamente secreto hasta que se reveló durante esta investigación.

Una de las Jornadas del Instituto Berg organizadas por Armando Rodríguez Pérez


En 2014 y 2015, Armando Rodríguez Pérez fue el organizador de dos conferencias internacionales para el Instituto Berg. Se trataba de eventos de muy alto nivel, con una duración en cada caso de quince días, comenzando en Madrid y continuando por varias ciudades europeas. Los directores académicos de la conferencia fueron los dos codirectores del Instituto Berg, incluido el supervisor académico de Armando, el Prof. Joaquín González Ibáñez.

Estas conferencias estaban imbuidas del espíritu “antinazi” y antifascista del Instituto Berg. En 2014, el segundo día de la conferencia incluyó un homenaje a una exposición en el Museo Reino Sofía dedicada a la pintura de Picasso Guernica, la ciudad española bombardeada por la Legión Cóndor (una fuerza alemana que apoyaba a los nacionalistas del general Franco) en abril de 1937 durante la Guerra Civil Española, que ha alcanzado un estatus mítico e icónico para los antifascistas.

El codirector del Instituto Berg dio una conferencia a la conferencia titulada ‘Colonialismo, Guerras Mundiales y el Holocausto’, luego el 1 de julio (después de que la conferencia visitó el Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos), Armando organizó una visita al campo de concentración en Natzweiler-Struthof en Alsacia. Este fue el único campo de este tipo establecido por las autoridades alemanas en suelo francés y, a menudo, se lo describe como un “campo de la muerte”. De manera controvertida, se afirma que hubo una cámara de gas homicida en el campo, pero solo una primitiva utilizada para asesinatos experimentales ocasionales, no los asesinatos en masa alegados en Auschwitz y otros campos en Europa del Este.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez organizó dos visitas al campo de concentración de Natzweiler – Struthof para las conferencias internacionales del Instituto Berg

El erudito revisionista Prof. Robert Faurisson ha analizado en detalle esta historia de la ‘cámara de gas’ de Natzweiler-Struthof. Faurisson descubrió que incluso el experto científico enviado por los fiscales franceses para examinar a Struthof (Prof. René Fabre, Decano de la Facultad de Farmacología de París) concluyó en diciembre de 1945 que no había rastro de ácido cianhídrico (es decir, la supuesta arma homicida ‘Zyklon B’, en realidad un insecticida) en la supuesta ‘cámara de gas’ de Struthof. Tampoco los cadáveres de presuntas víctimas ‘gaseadas’ que Fabre inspeccionó en una morgue de Estrasburgo mostraban rastro alguno de este veneno. Natzweiler-Struthof es, por lo tanto, único entre los supuestos ‘campos de exterminio’ por haber sido inspeccionado, no por un ‘revisionista’, sino por un testigo experto que trabaja para el nuevo gobierno francés, y se descubrió que no había sido utilizado de la manera ahora descrita por el ‘Holocausto’ industria.

Pero nada de eso lo menciona el Instituto Berg, para quien la visita organizada por Armando fue simplemente una genuflexión en un sitio del ‘Holocausto’. Al igual que el viaje a la exposición de Guernica en Madrid, este fue un acto de homenaje cuasi religioso a las ‘víctimas del nazismo’. Como veremos, toda la perspectiva del Instituto Berg se basa en los fundamentos del Holocausto.

Al día siguiente de este acto de homenaje en el “campo de exterminio”, la conferencia discutió los juicios de Nuremberg, que nuevamente son fundamentales para la versión de “derecho internacional de los derechos humanos” promovida por el Instituto Berg.

Un año más tarde, en junio-julio de 2015, Armando organizó una segunda conferencia del Instituto Berg en líneas muy similares, incorporando nuevamente una visita al “campo de exterminio” de Natzweiler-Struthof. En esta oportunidad también hubo una conferencia del académico abogado Javier Chinchón de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, sobre el tema de la memoria histórica y la responsabilidad del Estado con las ‘víctimas’. Chinchón argumentó que España había fallado lo suficiente en condenar los crímenes de la era franquista: ha sido uno de los principales cabilderos académicos que presionan por una estricta “ley de memoria democrática” del tipo de la adoptada recientemente.

La actual clienta de Armando, Isabel Peralta, ha hecho campaña del otro lado de este argumento, pero Armando a la hora de ofrecer sus servicios prefirió ocultar este dato “insignificante” a un cliente considerado uno de los principales antisemitas a nivel internacional. Olvido el detalle de que él mismo había sido el organizador de conferencias académicas que promovieron activamente dicha ley; conferencias que estaban completamente imbuidas de un espíritu “antifascista” que buscaba fundamentar todo el enfoque de los “derechos humanos” en un enfoque políticamente sesgado de la Guerra Civil Española y la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

En 2013, una conferencia anterior del Instituto Berg, similar a las dos organizadas por el propio Armando durante 2014-2015, fue organizada por el socio de Armando en la firma GABEIRO, José Feliciano Beceiro Armada. Esto incluyó una recepción ofrecida por el Embajador de Colombia. (Beceiro y Armando participaron en las sesiones de capacitación del Instituto Berg para el Ejército y las Fuerzas de Seguridad de Colombia).

Una vez más, esta conferencia concluyó con una peregrinación solemne al “campo de exterminio” en Natzweiler-Struthof.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez, joven abogado y organizador de conferencias del Instituto Berg

Los colegas de Armando en el Instituto Berg han seguido organizando estas conferencias todos los años, cuando la pandemia no los ha interrumpido. En 2019, la conferencia se llevó a cabo en Israel, en coordinación con los socios académicos de larga data del Instituto Berg, la Universidad Hebrea de Jerusalén. Incluyó visitas al antiguo ícono histórico de Masada, donde supuestamente los terroristas judíos se suicidaron en el año 74 dC en lugar de rendirse a las fuerzas romanas que habían asediado la fortaleza; al parlamento de Israel, la Knesset; y por supuesto una peregrinación al Museo del Holocausto, Yad Vashem.

En enero de 2022, una conferencia internacional similar organizada por el Instituto Berg incluyó una peregrinación a Auschwitz.


El Instituto Berg –para el que trabajó Armando Rodríguez Pérez y que fue coorganizador de su formación académica– se especializa en publicar la obra de destacados judíos en relación con el Holocausto, los juicios por crímenes de guerra y las actividades antinazis.

Incorporada formalmente en 2009 como la Fundación Berg Oceana Aufklarung, su fundador y codirector es el Prof. Joaquín Gonzáles Ibáñez, profesor de derecho internacional y relaciones internacionales tanto en la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, establecida desde hace mucho tiempo, como en la universidad privada Alfonso X.

Entrevistado en enero de 2019, el profesor Gonzáles explicó que el Instituto se inspiró en parte en su héroe político Nelson Mandela, y enfatizó que toda su perspectiva sobre los “derechos humanos” estaba arraigada en el antifascismo y el antinazismo:
“Siempre nos referimos a la perspectiva histórica, que probablemente los tres peores legados de los últimos siglos, las horas más oscuras, los capítulos más oscuros, los momentos más infames de los dos últimos siglos de la historia mundial fueron precisamente creados por europeos. Lo que quiero decir es el legado del colonialismo y el fascismo, todos ellos son creaciones europeas. Así, Franco, Mussolini y Hitler y otros personajes históricos son tan europeos como van Gogh, Goya o Picasso. Y en este programa, partimos de Auschwitz y nos vamos al Museo de Arte Moderno Reina Sofía para encontrarnos con el Guernica de Picasso. Y tenemos esta herramienta, que es un enfoque jurídico, pero también histórico, político…”

El Prof. Gonzáles continuó describiendo cómo su Instituto Berg había creado “la biblioteca de derechos humanos más importante en el idioma español”. Esto comenzó en 2010 con la Trilogía de Auschwitz de Primo Levi que fue “la cuna del proyecto, el primer libro de la colección, el número cero, tuvimos la suerte de tener el mejor punto de partida. …Ir a Auschwitz de la mano de Primo Levi, te muestra no solo el pasado, sino cuáles son tus principales responsabilidades hacia el planeta tierra”.

El Instituto Berg y el Centro Sefarad Israel organizaron conjuntamente este evento para promocionar las memorias de Raphael Lemkin, un abogado judío que fue asesor principal en los juicios de Nuremberg y acuñó el término ‘genocidio’.

En el momento de esta entrevista en 2019, el Instituto acababa de publicar Totalmente Extraoficial, las memorias de Raphael Lemkin, publicadas por primera vez en inglés en 2013 como Totally Unofficial. Más famoso como el hombre que acuñó el término “genocidio”, Lemkin era un abogado judío polaco que se mudó a los EE. UU. y se convirtió en asesor especial del Departamento de Guerra de los EE. UU. Su libro de 1944 Axis Rule in Occupied Europe se considera un “texto fundamental en los estudios del Holocausto”, y Lemkin pasó a ser el asesor principal de Robert H. Jackson, abogado principal de los juicios de Nuremberg.

La edición en español tenía 70 páginas adicionales extraídas del archivo de Lemkin y un prólogo del escritor español Antonio Muñoz Molina, ganador del Premio Jerusalén y ahora residente en Nueva York. Muñoz también escribió una introducción a la edición en español de 2019 del Instituto Berg de las Memorias de los “cazadores de nazis” militantes más famosos de Europa, Serge y Beate Klarsfeld (publicadas por primera vez en francés en 2015 y en inglés en 2018 como Hunting the Truth: Memoirs of Beate and Serge Klarsfeld). El video a continuación muestra un evento organizado conjuntamente por el Instituto Berg y un centro cultural judío en Madrid, el Centro Sefarad Israel, en homenaje a los Klarsfeld.

Ahora se sabe que los Klarsfeld trabajaron regularmente con la policía secreta comunista de Alemania Oriental, la Stasi, para demonizar a los políticos occidentales como “nazis” y realizar trucos de propaganda “anti-nazi”. Organizaron muchas operaciones secretas contra veteranos nacionalsocialistas y “neonazis” y en 1974 fueron declarados culpables y sentenciados a dos meses de prisión (más tarde suspendidas) por el intento de secuestro del ex oficial de inteligencia de las SS Kurt Lischka.

Los logros más famosos de los Klarsfeld incluyeron rastrear al ex oficial de la Gestapo Klaus Barbie y haciéndolo deportar de Bolivia a Francia para ser juzgado, y hacer campaña para el enjuiciamiento del jefe de la policía de Paris retirado Maurice Papon. También rastrearon a René Bousquet, un ex funcionario del gobierno de Philippe Pétain en Vichy. Bousquet fue asesinado antes de que pudiera ser juzgado.

En varias ocasiones, los Klarsfeld intentaron localizar a Alois Brunner, un exfuncionario del Tercer Reich que vivía en Damasco: Beate Klarsfeld incluso emprendió una misión encubierta en Siria, donde estuvo brevemente encarcelada.

Desde finales de la década de 1970, uno de los principales objetivos de los Klarsfeld fue el erudito revisionista francés Prof. Robert Faurisson. Hicieron campaña a favor de su enjuiciamiento, testificaron en sus juicios y organizaron propaganda antirrevisionista en muchos países. También han estado activos en campañas contra muchas variedades diferentes de políticos nacionalistas modernos, incluso aquellos como Marine Le Pen que se distancian laboriosamente del racialismo, el revisionismo histórico, el nacionalsocialismo y el “antisemitismo”.

Los Klarsfeld son destacados por el fundador del Instituto Berg, Gonzáles, como una de sus principales inspiraciones, al igual que Fritz Bauer, el juez judío alemán que fue el responsable de alertar al servicio de inteligencia israelí Mossad sobre el paradero de Adolf Eichmann, permitiéndoles comenzar la operación que terminó en su secuestro en Buenos Aires, juicio y ejecución. Bauer también dirigió la acusación en los juicios de Frankfurt Auschwitz que comenzaron en 1963 y fueron los juicios más importantes relacionados con el “Holocausto” después de Nuremberg. El Instituto Berg trabajó con el Instituto Fritz Bauer para crear un “Premio cinematográfico de derechos humanos” en honor conjunto de Fritz Bauer y Raphael Lemkin.

El juez judío-alemán Fritz Bauer es otro héroe de la historia del ‘Holocausto’ venerado por el Instituto Berg

Al construir el Instituto, el Prof. Gonzáles ha dicho: “Soñé personalmente con mis héroes, Lemkin, Primo Levi, por supuesto, Klarsfeld y, finalmente, Fritz Bauer. …Además, estamos trabajando en algo especial sobre la Guerra Civil en España y la posguerra civil y el trauma y el legado punitivo e infame de la dictadura franquista y la suerte de una respuesta democrática durante los últimos 40 años de democracia española . No teníamos en España ninguna agenda diseñada cuando se desarrolló la transición española sobre cómo abordar las violaciones de derechos humanos y los crímenes de la dictadura franquista de 1939 a 1975. Probablemente poca gente pensó en este necesario escenario”.

En otras palabras, el Prof. Gonzáles hablaba de la falta de institucionalización del “antifascismo” en la España posfranquista. Esta deficiencia ha sido subsanada en 2022 con la “ley de la memoria democrática” que demoniza el nacionalismo español y consagra a los comunistas y antifascistas como héroes, y con una ley de “antisemitismo” que la acompaña y que criminaliza efectivamente las críticas al judaísmo y muchas formas de revisionismo del Holocausto.

Otros libros publicados por el Instituto Berg incluyen:
– La edición en español de El juicio de Eichmann de Deborah Lipstadt (2019: publicado por primera vez en inglés en 2011 como The Eichmann Trial).
– La edición en español de las memorias de Richard Sonnenfeldt, un oficial de inteligencia judío-alemán que fue intérprete personal del general William Donovan, jefe de la OSS (precursora de la CIA) e intérprete principal del equipo de la fiscalía estadounidense en los juicios de Nuremberg ; estas memorias fueron publicadas en español por el Instituto Berg en 2018 como Testigo en Núremberg; publicado por primera vez en inglés en 2006 como Witness to Nuremberg.
– Un libro sobre los neonazis estadounidenses de Aryeh Neier, un abogado judío alemán que se desempeñó durante veinte años como presidente de la red “filantrópica” de George Soros, el Open Society Institute; en la edición en español del Instituto Berg (2020) este libro se llama Defendiendo a mi enemigo; publicado por primera vez en inglés en 1979 como Defending My Enemy: American Nazis in Skokie, Illinois, and the Risks of Freedom.
– Las memorias de Sari Nusseibeh, un palestino muy controvertido visto por muchos de sus compatriotas como un traidor porque aboga por renunciar al derecho de retorno de los palestinos a cambio de acuerdos de “paz” no especificados con Israel; Nusseibeh cofundó una iniciativa conjunta en 2002 con Ami Ayalon, ex jefe del servicio de seguridad israelí Shin Bet; las memorias fueron publicadas por el Instituto Berg en 2020 como Érase una vez un país: una vida palestina (publicadas por primera vez en inglés en 2007 como Once Upon a Country: A Palestine Life).
El juicio del Káiser, del académico judío canadiense William Schabas, una historia del intento de llevar a juicio al káiser alemán Wilhelm II por “crímenes de guerra” después de la Primera Guerra Mundial; esta edición en español se publicó en 2020; la primera edición en inglés en 2018 se tituló The Trial of the Kaiser; gran parte del trabajo de Schabas se centra en el desarrollo de la ley de derechos humanos en el contexto del Holocausto y los juicios de Nuremberg, aunque a veces ha sido controvertido por su asociación con la izquierda israelí y sus críticas a los gobiernos de Netanyahu.
– Las memorias de Telford Taylor, un abogado estadounidense y oficial de inteligencia más famoso por su papel como fiscal jefe en los juicios de Nuremberg. Este fue publicado por Instituto Berg en 2022 como Anatomía de los juicios de Núremberg, y publicado por primera vez en inglés en 1992 como The Anatomy of the Nuremberg Trials: A Personal Memoir.
Justicia Imperfecta de Stuart Eizenstat, publicado por Instituto Berg en 2019, publicado por primera vez en 2009 como Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II. Este es un relato del papel de Eizenstat durante la década de 1990 tratando de obtener una compensación financiera para las familias judías cuyas propiedades, pertenencias o cuentas bancarias supuestamente habían sido confiscadas o perdidas durante el Holocausto. Desde 2013 ha sido el “Asesor Especial para Asuntos del Holocausto” del Departamento de Estado de EE. UU., designado para ese cargo por Hillary Clinton.

Uno de los numerosos libros sobre la historia del ‘Holocausto’ publicados por el Instituto Berg es una traducción al español de las memorias del fiscal jefe de Nuremberg, Telford Taylor.

Realmente no podría estar más claro que el Instituto Berg es uno de los principales promotores académicos de los estudios sobre el Holocausto en España y está imbuido de un espíritu antifascista y “antinazista”. Mientras tanto, el ex alumno del Instituto Berg, Armando Rodríguez Pérez, se ha presentado durante los últimos dos años como un militante fascista, nacionalsocialista o nacionalbolchevique: a veces carlista, a veces falangista, a veces franquista, defensor de una nación española integral, a veces promoviendo esquemas separatistas. Mientras cambiaba de facciones, Armando se ha asociado estrechamente con las alas militantes de la “extrema derecha” española. No solo actuó como abogado de las principales figuras del ahora desaparecido grupo juvenil nacionalsocialista Bastión Frontal, sino que se insertó en su liderazgo.


En los últimos meses se ha ampliado la misión del infiltrado antifascista Armando Rodríguez Pérez. Ha buscado acercarse cada vez más a Juan Antonio Llopart, veterano nacionalista radical y editor. Armando se presenta a sí mismo como un militante antisionista que busca vincularse con el gobierno iraní y sus aliados.

Ahora figura como ‘secretario de acción política’ de la nueva organización Movimiento Pueblo de Llopart, que busca registrarse como partido político a tiempo para las elecciones locales del 2023. En una reciente conferencia en Madrid que ayudó a organizar a Llopart, Armando conoció por primera vez a la activista británica Lady Michèle Renouf, quien naturalmente asumió que era un nacionalista y antisionista de buena fe. Durante el fin de semana del 2 al 4 de diciembre de 2022, Armando asistió a una pequeña reunión en la segunda casa de Lady Renouf en el campo alemán, donde entre los invitados se encontraban algunas figuras conocidas de la escena nacionalsocialista alemana. Buenas noticias para el infiltrado antifascista Armando, quien habrá recogido inteligencia y hecho lo que esperaba que fueran contactos útiles. Los involucrados ahora están siendo advertidos sobre las verdaderas lealtades de Armando, y esperamos que se minimice el daño.

Durante 2021 Armando Rodríguez Pérez se infiltró en grupos reaccionarios y radicales de ‘derecha’: aquí se le ve promoviendo al grupo ultraconservador Resiste España, pero simultáneamente trabajó con grupos radicales e incluso separatistas que son diametralmente opuestos a la política de Resiste España.

Estas conexiones británicas y alemanas ya han llevado a Armando Rodríguez Pérez a infiltrarse en un plan para obtener ayuda iraní para un prófugo político buscado por las autoridades alemanas. Estamos completamente informados sobre este plan, pero por razones obvias aún no informamos los detalles completos. Se están tomando medidas para minimizar los daños que pueda causar el infiltrado antifascista Armando Rodríguez Pérez, aunque claro aún no se sabe si su intención es sabotear el rescate de este disidente o utilizar todo el asunto para congraciarse con las redes iraníes e infiltrarlas en nombre de los intereses israelíes.

Lo cierto es que Armando Rodríguez Pérez es una mala noticia para los nacionalistas, nacionalsocialistas, revisionistas y antisionistas. Varias de sus posiciones ideológicas inconsistentes parecen haber sido adoptadas con la intención principal de debilitar y dividir el movimiento nacionalista radical, tanto dentro de España como internacionalmente.

En enero de este año, cuando la policía de Madrid intentaba localizar a Isabel Peralta (que en ese momento residía temporalmente en Alemania), les llamó por teléfono un abogado llamado Álvaro Domec, que afirmó ser el representante legal de Isabel. De hecho, la señorita Isabel no le reconoce como su representante hasta la primera declaración en la que la juez asignada menciona el nombre de Álvaro en vez de Armando, corroborando que así es al adquirir los documentos judiciales en su juicio en curso por el discurso de mayo de 2021 frente a la Embajada de Marruecos que continúan presentando a Domec como su abogado.

Por misteriosas razones, ninguno de los expedientes policiales y de la fiscalía relacionados con la investigación de Isabel Peralta y Bastión Frontal menciona a Armando Rodríguez Pérez. Además, a pesar del intenso interés de los medios antifascistas y de los principales medios de comunicación en Bastión Frontal, que durante gran parte de 2021-2022 fue retratado como una organización ‘neonazi’ particularmente peligrosa y violenta, ningún periodista y ningún ‘antifascista’ expuso jamás su co-líder ‘Armando Bastión’ como el exteriormente respetable abogado madrileño Armando Rodríguez Pérez. Cabe mencionar que la demanda impuesta por Isabel al centro Simón Wiesenthal y Jerusalem Post en la que Armando ejerce como representante legal, ha sido prorroga en dos ocasiones pues no ha llegado la demanda a sus demandantes en el plazo lógico de tramitación.

Igualmente misteriosa fue la reticencia del propio Armando durante marzo de 2022, cuando su cliente Isabel Peralta fue detenida en el aeropuerto de Frankfurt e interrogada, antes de ser expulsada del país en lo que parece ser una deportación potencialmente ilegal; y en octubre de 2022 cuando fue detenida nuevamente por la policía alemana en Hesse y cumplió con una orden de exclusión permanente. En ambas ocasiones ella necesitaba urgentemente un abogado alemán confiable, pero Armando dio la impresión de que no tenía contactos alemanes que pudieran ayudar.

Isabel Peralta dirigiéndose a una manifestación contra la inmigración organizada por Bastión Frontal frente a la Embajada de Marruecos en mayo de 2021: Armando Rodríguez Pérez era co-líder del grupo y es el abogado defensor de Isabel en un juicio penal derivado de este discurso, pero también es un espía antifascista: un evidente conflicto de intereses que debería hacer que se desestimara la acusación.

En el momento del arresto de Isabel en marzo en Frankfurt, fue el editor adjunto de Heritage & Destiny, Peter Rushton, y no su abogado madrileño Armando Rodríguez Pérez, quien se puso en contacto con un experimentado abogado alemán de Berlín, Wolfram Nahrath, y le pidió que lo representara Isabel, lo cual hizo.

Esto fue utilizado seis o siete meses después por las autoridades alemanas como “prueba” de que la propia Isabel tenía “conexiones de alto nivel” con “extremistas políticos alemanes”.

Completamente desconocido para Isabel, su abogado español Armando en realidad tiene relaciones particularmente estrechas con abogados alemanes, que él había evitado cuidadosamente mencionarle. De hecho, su despacho de abogados en Madrid (C. de Serrano, 79, 7d) que en su día fue la oficina de su extinto despacho GABEIRO, ahora funciona como sucursal en Madrid de un despacho de abogados llamado Strafverteidiger Spanien. Esta firma tiene nombre alemán, aunque tiene su sede en Barcelona y también tiene una sucursal en la localidad turística de Palma de Mallorca.

La firma está dirigida por la amiga y colega de Armando, Maria Barbancho Saborit, y se especializa en representar a clientes de habla alemana que necesitan representación legal en España, incluidas personas acusadas de delitos financieros y/o que enfrentan órdenes de arresto europeas.

La Sra. Barbancho Saborit parece tener ascendencia alemana en parte, y se educó en la Deutsche Schule de Barcelona, antes de pasar parte de su carrera universitaria en Heidelberg. No hay ninguna sugerencia de que la Sra. Barbancho Saborit sea necesariamente parte o incluso consciente de la doble vida de Armando dentro de los movimientos nacionalsocialistas europeos. Está cualificada en derecho español y alemán.

Armando Rodríguez Pérez saliendo de la corte en Madrid con su cliente Isabel Peralta en marzo de 2022, luego de una audiencia de su caso contra el Centro Simon Wiesenthal y Jerusalem Post. Nuevamente, el conflicto de intereses del espía antifascista Armando no fue revelado a su cliente.


La misión de infiltración de Armando Rodríguez Pérez como espía en círculos nacionalistas radicales y nacionalsocialistas plantea serios interrogantes sobre la justicia española.

¿Cómo puede ser correcto que un infiltrado actúe como representante legal de alguien acusado de delitos políticos, cuando sin el conocimiento de su cliente, el abogado en cuestión tiene un largo historial de asociación con ideas políticas completamente opuestas?

Naturalmente, es posible que un abogado represente a alguien cuyas opiniones no comparte. Pero en este caso, Armando Rodríguez Pérez fingió compartir esos puntos de vista (de hecho, actuó como líder de los grupos políticos involucrados y como abogado de sus activistas), mientras que en realidad tenía una lealtad de larga data con las fuerzas opositoras.

Es urgente que se abandone el actual procesamiento de Isabel Peralta y que la policía secreta y la fiscalía española expliquen cuánto sabían sobre la verdadera agenda de Armando Rodríguez Pérez.

Mientras tanto seguiremos trabajando con los movimientos nacionalistas, nacionalsocialistas, revisionistas y antisionistas de varios países en un esfuerzo por minimizar y reparar el daño infligido por Armando Rodríguez Pérez.

H&D writer Isabel Peralta banned from Germany for life

Isabel Peralta has been banned from Germany as a “threat to national security”.

UPDATE: Isabel is now back on Twitter, even though banned from visiting Germany. The German government cannot suppress the truth forever, whether online or in person.

Germany is already known for its laws banning free political debate and historical research – most notoriously for the recent decision to imprison 94-year-old Ursula Haverbeck. It has become almost routine for Germany to deny basic human rights to its own citizens, while welcoming alien immigrants from every corner of the world.

Now the German authorities have again breached their basic obligations under the Schengen treaty, by which fellow Europeans are supposed to be allowed freedom to travel across its borders.

They are attempting to impose a life ban on Spanish nationalist activist and H&D writer Isabel Peralta – despite the fact she has never even been charged with, let alone convicted of, any criminal offence in Germany.

As we reported in Issue 111 of H&D (but has only yesterday been picked up by the mainstream press in Spain), German police detained Isabel on 6th October while she was minding her own business in the central German university town of Marburg. She was served with official papers ordering her to leave the country.

This followed earlier harassment at Manchester Airport, when Isabel was detained for more than six hours on 24th September, the night before her speech at the H&D meeting in Preston, which can be viewed online here.

It’s now apparent that UK authorities abused Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act, so as to do a favour for their German colleagues. The UK authorities knew perfectly well that they had no valid reason to detain Isabel, but they used Schedule 7 as a ‘fishing expedition’ to collect political intelligence from her phone and computer, and pass it to the German authorities.

This has nothing to do with terrorism and nothing to do with UK law: British police and border security have become accomplices in the German authorities’ campaign of political persecution against nationalists.

Unlike post-Brexit UK citizens, Isabel is of course (as a Spanish citizen) entitled under European law (in fact under the European constitution) to enter Germany free of harassment, and for that matter to work or study in Germany.

Such rights can only be withdrawn in very exceptional circumstances: even convicted criminals are normally entitled to these rights.

In order to expel Isabel, and now to argue that she should be excluded from Germany for life, the authorities have had to argue not that she is a criminal (because they know that she has broken no German laws) but that she is a serious threat to “national security”, because she supposedly has such high-level connections with dangerous subversives in leadership positions among the “far right”, including people who aim to overthrow the German government!

This extraordinary paranoia reflects the fact that despite the evident short-term weakness of German nationalist movements, those who govern the occupied Federal Republic are aware of their lack of legitimacy. They know that their rule since the end of blatant Allied military occupation in the early 1950s has been based on lies, and they fear (correctly) that Isabel Peralta, as a brave and intelligent advocate of truth, is capable of inspiring a movement among new generations of Europeans that will eventually win.

That’s why they had to invent a quite ludicrous case against her, which now aims to exclude her from Germany for life. This legal and constitutional outrage will of course be appealed, if necessary as far as the European courts.

H&D and our colleagues in several European countries have been working for the last two months on a major investigation of the extreme measures that have been adopted by the enemies of nationalism to subvert our movement and deny legal and constitutional rights. Next week we shall publish the results of this investigation.

Our brave comrade Isabel is still facing legal proceedings in Spain under their version of the race laws (though this case is unrelated to her exclusion from Germany and does not provide any valid reason for the German authorities’ behaviour). She is also bringing a civil action against the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Jerusalem Post, a case which has already begun in the Madrid courts.

Madrid authorities seek to jail H&D writer in blatant political prosecution

Madrid prosecutors aim to jail Isabel Peralta, H&D’s European correspondent, for her comments at a demonstration last year.

Isabel Peralta – European correspondent of H&D who recently addressed our meeting in Preston – is in court this week in Madrid, where the authorities aim to jail her for three years.

The case has been brought under Spain’s equivalent of the UK’s racial incitement laws, but as our assistant editor Peter Rushton explains in this article, Isabel is being targeted in blatant political machinations: not only by the Spanish government, but also by lobbyists working in the interests of the Moroccan government.

For this and other reasons which we shall disclose in a later article, the prosecution of Isabel Peralta is a disgrace to Spanish justice. If she is convicted, the matter will be appealed if necessary as far as the European Court. Spanish politicians and Moroccan lobbyists are the true criminals, working against the interests of Spain and against the interests of Europeans.

Isabel Peralta addressing H&D’s event in Preston a few weeks ago

The case dates back to 18th May 2021, when a demonstration was held outside the Moroccan Embassy in Madrid by a Spanish nationalist youth group. Isabel was at the time a leading activist in this group.

In an interview and speech, both of which were later broadcast on YouTube, Isabel explained the purpose of this demonstration: to draw attention to the attempted blackmail being exerted by the Moroccan Government, who were threatening to flood Spain with immigrants unless Spain accepted Moroccan control over Western Sahara.

This is a diplomatic dispute that has been going on for more than half a century, ever since Spain gave up its colonial control over the province once known as Spanish Sahara. Morocco seeks to grab the entire area for itself, but is opposed by an independence movement called Polisario Front, which is backed by Algeria.

It is in Spaniards’ economic interest to back the Polisario, partly in order to remain on good terms with Algeria, which supplies Spain with natural gas. But for the past two years the Moroccan government has exerted blackmail on Spain.

Morocco’s main weapon is control over illegal immigration into Spanish territory. They have indicated that they are prepared to turn the immigration tap on or off. And Spain’s socialist government is naturally unable or unwilling to take firm action against the consequent flood, just as it fails to resist mass immigration from elsewhere.

Essentially this was the background to the demonstration addressed by Isabel Peralta in Madrid in May last year. The demonstration targeted both the Moroccan government’s blackmail, and the Spanish authorities’ weakness.

Isabel’s interview and speech was making a serious and well-informed case. She explained that the demonstrators had come to the Embassy “to stand up to the indecency of our politicians who look the other way, while we suffer unprecedented racial replacement”.

She emphasised that “the problem here is not Morocco. The problem is what purports to be our own government, which with impunity sets off this explosion: the arrival of immigrants on a massive scale.”

Since politicians were not prepared to stand up to the Moroccan government’s blackmail, Spanish nationalist youth had to come forward. Isabel concluded her interview with words that require some explanation to British readers: “We shall not allow another Green March.”

Moroccan invaders on the ‘Green March’ in November 1975

The Green March – on 6th November 1975 – was the deliberate incursion by 350,000 Moroccans (organised by their government) into what was still Spanish colonial territory, in what is now Western Sahara. Because Spain was beginning its decolonisation, its soldiers were ordered not to open fire and to accept what was essentially an invasion.

So the Green March was a Spanish surrender, abandoning their responsibility to their former colonial subjects. Spain signed the so-called Madrid Accords, which effectively rewarded Morocco for their illegal invasion. (Part of the problem was that this was happening during the last weeks of General Franco’s life: he was dying and incapable of exercising any political authority.)

During her speech to the rally outside the Moroccan Embassy, Isabel picked up the theme that had concluded her interview: “Now as in 1975, they are trying again and they are coming with force, and 5,000 now seems like a lot to us, but in ten years they will seem like few, because if we do not stop them this will be our future: immigration in Europe will supplant our race, our diversity, our religion and our culture, and we are the only ones who are going to fight for it.”

The context is very clear: Isabel is correctly comparing the surrender in 1975, when the Spanish government gave in to Moroccan invaders and betrayed the indigenous people of Western Sahara, to the potential surrender in 2021-2022, when today’s Spanish government is similarly weak in the face of Moroccan threats.

Isabel addressing the Embassy rally in May 2021. Her accurate analysis of Spain’s surrender to Moroccan blackmail has resulted in Isabel herself – not treacherous politicians and lobbyists – facing trial!

It turned out that Isabel was absolutely correct. Not only has the Madrid government continued to allow floods of immigrants, it has also surrendered to Morocco’s blackmail. In March 2022, almost a year after Isabel’s comments, Spain’s socialist government carried out a U-turn and adopted a pro-Moroccan position, abandoning the decades-long Spanish policy that Western Sahara’s future should be settled by a referendum of its inhabitants.

The U-turn threatens vital trade deals including the supply of natural gas from Algeria.

The entire situation is a shambles, rooted in the inability of Spain’s socialist government to stand up for Spanish interests.

As so often across the West, when the arguments of nationalists are vindicated, the authorities’ response is to persecute us. And as so often, weakness in the face of an invader or a blackmailer merely invites further invasion and further blackmail.

This time it is our correspondent Isabel Peralta who is on the frontline. As they prepared their surrender to Morocco, the Spanish authorities launched a prosecution of Isabel, which has come to court in Madrid this week. Prosecutors are asking for her to be jailed for up to three years.

In presenting her interview and speech as inciting racial violence, prosecutors have deliberately ignored its political context. They have not only deliberately distorted her speech, they have even omitted crucial words from the transcript. Isabel clearly said that the demonstration was anti-immigration, but not motivated by hatred of any race. Such hatred, she emphasised, would be absurd since our entire political outlook is based on recognition of racial differences. We are motivated, she pointed out, “by admiration and devotion to our own race in the face of a threat to its very existence”.

The political manipulation at the heart of this case is obvious from official papers that I have examined.

Mohammed Chaib (above, third left) at an official Moroccan event with his good friend Karima Benyaïch, the Moroccan Ambassador to Madrid, plus socialist MP Ricardo Garcia and Spain’s honorary consul in Morocco, Khadija El Gabsi. Chaib has extensive Moroccan business interests – an employee of his foundation brought the only criminal complaint against Isabel’s speech.

Ten days after the demonstration, Madrid’s political police were visited by Sofia Bencrimo, an employee of a charity that promotes the integration of immigrants. Later the same day these police officers sent a report to the prosecutors: this was the first step in the process leading to Isabel’s criminal trial.

The political police (duly followed by prosecutors) presented Ms Bencrimo’s complaint against Isabel as though it reflected a charity standing up for ordinary immigrants who felt threatened by Isabel’s words. In the entire prosecution dossier of more than 90 pages, which I have studied in detail, Ms Bencrimo’s is the only complaint from anyone outside Spanish officialdom.

Yet the organisation this complainant represented – the Ibn Battuta Foundation – is not as simple as police and prosecutors pretend.

Its president is Mohammed Chaib Akhdim, a veteran politician and businessman with close personal and financial ties to the Moroccan government – the very people whose actions were being exposed and criticised in Isabel’s speech.

Chaib is a former MP in both the Catalan and Madrid parliaments for the left-wing party PSC (Socialists Party of Catalonia). But he is also a wealthy businessman with financial interests in his native Morocco, and in particular stands to benefit from Morocco taking control of Western Sahara. Since 1992 he was been director of business development in Morocco for COMSA Industrial, a company with vast interests in engineering and construction projects in Morocco, including the disputed territory of Western Sahara.

Mohammed Chaib (second left) with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez. Chaib’s business will profit greatly from Sánchez’s surrender to Morocco over Western Sahara; meanwhile the politicised Spanish police prosecute Isabel Peralta for drawing attention to the treachery of Sánchez’s government. An employee of Chaib’s foundation brought the complaint that facilitated this prosecution.

It is a remarkable coincidence that the “charity worker” who brought the complaint against Isabel Peralta was an employee of Chaib’s foundation.

H&D fully supports our brave and brilliant comrade Isabel. We look forward to her victory over this politically motivated prosecution – however long that victory takes.

We shall be reporting further on the development of this case, and on the related political persecution of Isabel in Germany, which was assisted by border security in our own country who disgracefully detained her for more than six hours a few weeks ago during her visit to England. Check this website and our January edition of H&D for more extraordinary revelations about the state of European justice.
