New Book Reveals How KGB Laid Groundwork For Islamist Terrorism Against The United States And Israel

David Martosko at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a piece on a new book that points a finger at the Soviet KGB for formenting Islamist terrorism.

The Highest-ranking Soviet-bloc intelligence officer ever to defect to the West claims in a new book that anti-American Islamic terrorism had its roots in a secret 1970s-era KGB plot to harm the United States and Israel by seeding Muslim Countires with carefully targeted propaganda.

Yuri Andropov, the KGB chief for 15 years before he became the Soviet premier, sent hundreds of agents and thousands of copies of propaganda literature to Muslim countries. 'By 1972,' according to the book, 'Andropov's disinformation machinery was working around the clock to persuade the Islamic world that Israel and the United States intended to transform the rst of the world into a Zionist fiefdom.'

'Acording to Andropov, the Islamic world was a petri dish in which the KGb community could nuture a virulent strian of America-hatred, grown from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought.'

Those claims come from former Romanian Lt. Gen Ion Mihail Pacepa and university of Mississippi law professor ronald Rychlak.

In their book "Disinformation," Pacepa spills the secrets he kept for decades as head of Romania's spy apparatus and secret police, the DIE, before he secured political asylum in the U.S. in 1978.
