Is George Soros a Modern Rumpelstiltskin?

This statement was released by the LaRouche Political Action Committee on March 4, immediately following the issue of an arrest warrant by the International Criminal Court for Sudan's Head of State, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir. PDF version of this article includes graphics.

Today's legally dubious, and probably fraudulent indictment of Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, by the International Criminal Court (ICC), on the warrant co-uttered by a private tribunal funded heavily by megaspeculator George Soros, once again recommends scrutiny of Soros. This has led Lyndon LaRouche to ask: "Is George Soros a Modern Rumpelstiltskin?"

Look back to the terribly shocking admissions which came out of Soros's own mouth during a CBS 60 Minutes interview of Soros, by Steve Kroft, on Dec. 20, 1998.

Britain's own Hungarian Jewish emigré Soros is known, by his own admission, to have had his character shaped, still today, by his experience during the Nazi occupation of his native land. Then, by his own admission, during those awful months, teenager Soros had been employed as a supposed gentile, in assisting the implementation the Nazi program of looting, and then exterminating, Soros's own fellow Jews.

What came out of Soros's mouth in that interview was a set of cold-blooded admissions which should have shocked any reader of celebrated U.S. journalist Ben Hecht's account given in a former best-seller documentary, Perfidy!, on the Eichmann case.

When Soros was questioned by Kroft, as to how he reacted to this experience as a teen-age runner for the Eichmann apparatus, Soros displayed not only his total lack of conscience at the time, but insisted, still in 1998, on justifying, still today, what he had done for the Eichmann apparatus back then.

That CBS interview elicited from Soros's autobiographical accounts, presented an image of Soros's mind which, still today, makes the blood run cold. LaRouche said of that interview: "I compare my own knowledge from eyewitness reports of former inmates, including a close professional associate who had been in the camps even during the earlier, 1933-1940 interval, or the account of a leading psychoanalyst, Bruno Bettelheim, who had been a victim of the Nazi camps himself."

CBS's Kroft asked Soros:

And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

Soros replied:

Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that's when my character was made.

Soros had gone on in that broadcast, to reply to Kroft, that he felt no guilt whatsoever. In fact, according to the introduction to his father's book, which Soros himself wrote, "these were the happiest days of his life." Soros had added: "It is a sacreligious thing to say, but these ten months [of the Nazi occupation] were the happiest times of my life.... We led an adventurous life and we had fun together."

Lyndon LaRouche's evaluation of that CBS interview was: "Even as late as 1998 George Soros could react to the line of questioning by CBS's Kroft, by portraying himself, in that interview, as a man who has been broken by a brutal interrogation into identifying himself emotionally with his oppressors. In Soros's case, he, in that 1998 CBS interview, still identified himself as having had, still, the same craven submission to the fearful Nazi operation, as he had experienced it fifty-four years earlier!"

LaRouche's assessment of Soros's behavior in that broadcast is, that:

I wouldn't suggest that this attitude on Soros's part makes him inclined to go out and kill Jews. Rather, as the Nazi experience might suggest, the truth remains, to this day, that Soros does go out to kill, or ruin people, in one fashion or another, who are chosen to be his current choice of what he treats as lawful prey, acting as if without conscience, and does this in a way which is similar to the way he, in his own words spoken on CBS in 1998, reacted to his conditioning, as a terrified boy, at that time, an adolescent terrified into a mental state of virtual complicity by his experience with Adolf Hitler's Eichmann apparatus.

All of the despicable, present British asset Soros's obvious defects—his reversion to pre-Peace of Westphalia types of attacks on national states, his destruction of national currencies, and his drug-pushing, for starters, reflect, according to his own admissions to CBS, his training by the Nazis,

LaRouche said: "Psychoanalyst Bruno Bettlelheim wrote the book on cases like Soros's," and noted that:

According to associates of mine who had been victims in those Nazi camps, when anyone comparable to that Soros of 1998 makes the kinds of admissions which he made in that CBS interview, I shudder in the realization that I am witnessing in Soros the mind of the monster which the Nazis transformed him into becoming, a monster, still today, as in his experience, a terrified adolescent boy, back in those terrible times. That boy, as presented to CBS by Soros himself, is, according to his own reply to Kroft's questioning, now still that monster his propitiation of Nazi killers had transformed him into becoming back then. Soros's confession, heard from his own mouth on that CBS interviw, is that he is that kind of monster, still, even to the present day.

We see the echo of the young Soros running errands for the Nazi Eichmann apparatus, in the Mutt and Jeff role of Britain's Lord Malloch Brown and his sidekick Soros in their present role against Sudan.

LaRouche continued:

The creation of a private court, which seizes a citizen of some nation, to take that citizen out of the domain of what had been the realm of European international law since 1648, is itself a crime against humanity, and those who engage in such practice must, and probably will be treated, in some future time, in a manner no different than the Nazis who were processed through Nuremberg trials.

The totally unlawful action against Sudan by the ICC warrant, is being taken in full knowledge that it will lead to massive bloodshed and destruction—i.e., genocide. When monsters such as Britain's Lord Malloch Brown, his sidekick George Soros, and their crowd, such as those in the International Crisis Group, cynically chatter on about 'transforming political institutions and policies' and creating a 'peaceful settlement' in the region, Soros's own admissions in the 1998 CBS interview remind us, that Hitler had the same euphemisms for his aggression. Soros's language is his Orwellian double-speak excuse for his own role, albeit a lesser one, in the intention to perpetrate present-day equivalents of the Nazi murders directed by Eichmann.

LaRouche concluded:

In the true account of the story, the monster of a dwarf, Rumpelstiltskin, when denied his pleasure from his intended victim, tore himself apart by his own hands out of rage and frustration. One wonders what the author of that famous children's story would have said, in his time, of the manner in which the lawful end will have come, ultimately, to the Mutt-and-Jeff image of Malloch Brown side-by-side with his monstrously evil little side-kick, the murderous international drug-pusher Soros. After all, Soros's international drug pushing has already killed far more victims from around the world than Eichmann did.
