Assad Protects Adolf Eichman’s Right Hand Man from Israeli ‘Nazi Hunting’ Barbarity Until his Dying Day – Alois Brunner
This is a particularly interesting story, as although Alois Brunner may have been dead for as long as 4 years, the Syrian government has only now chosen to release the information surrounding of his death.
The Israelis have spent a veritable fortune-typically using your money, pursuing ‘Nazi war criminals’.
Then there are the countless Hollywood films, documentaries, television programs like Nazi Hunters, brainwashing us into supporting this mind-bogglingly barbaric practice of hunting elderly, often infirmed men down and executing them on sight.
That’s what makes Israel’s failure to capture and kill Adolf Eichman’s right hand man, Alois Brunner, so intriguing.
For more than half a century and across three continents, the Jews pursued Brunner to no avail.
There were dozens of attempts on his life, even incidents where Israel tried poisoning and blowing him up, yet Brunner constantly evaded capture.
Brunner, who lived until 2010 and the ripe old age of 98, did so under the protection of Syrian president, Bashar-Al Assad.
“President Assad has dedicated his life for Syria and protected me along the way.” Brunner told a German newspaper a few years back.
Living as long as he did, Brunner is one of only a few Reich reps to have witnessed first hand Israel’s crimes against humanity, contempt for Syria and human rights violations.
And just how close was Brunner to the Assad government?
Brunner, was a frequent guest of Assad’s, and received what amounted to a state funeral in Damascus after his death but 4 years ago.
The hilariously pro Jewish Atalntatic writes that,
“Brunner ended up in Syria, a regime in a place with less than friendly relations towards Jews, with a human rights record that is pretty despicable, and he participated,” Lipstadt told me. “He didn’t just go fishing for the next 30 years. He participated and apparently advised [former Syrian dictator Hafez] Assad.”
In a separate interview, Zuroff noted that while living in Syria under the pseudonym Dr. Georg Fischer, Brunner had taught the elder Assad how to torture. (In the ongoing Syrian Civil War, Hafez Assad’s son Bashar has carried on this legacy of terror and torture on an industrial and unfathomable scale.)
Despite the singular-seeming nature of Brunner’s story, Lipstadt warns against viewing Brunner as an anomaly. Adding that Brunner was not “an exception to the rule,” she noted that serious Nazis war criminals had escaped with the help of the Vatican and United States government and went on to live relatively ordinary lives. (The Mossad did target Brunner twice with letter bombs, causing him to lose an eye and three fingers.)”
Taught the Arabs how to torture? I’m certain the Syrians didn’t protect Brunner due to his ‘knowledge’ of torture techniques.

Notes – So who was Alois Brunner?
The DM reported that Brunner was “frequently described as the ‘right hand man’ of Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Holocaust, and was responsible for the deportation of 128,500 Jews to death camps.”
something that contradicts Brunners’s own recollection as well as numerous academic papers on the man put out by the Institute of Historical Review (IHR).
“I first heard about gas chambers after the end of the war,”Alois Brunner told the IHR’s Mark Weber.
Research by Mark Weber.
Following the Anschluss with Austria in 1938, SS Captain Brunner directed the Central Office for Jewish Emigration in Vienna, through which large numbers of Jews migrated to foreign countries.
The man known as “Eichmann’s right hand” later organized deportations of Jews from Berlin, France, Slovakia and Greece to ghettos and camps in eastern Europe.
Since the 1950s he has been living in exile in Damascus, Syria, under the name of “Georg Fischer.” Letter bomb attacks in 1961 and 1980 cost him one eye and the fingers of his left hand. Bodyguards constantly protect Brunner, who is now 76 or 77 years old; West Germany, Austria and France have asked for his extradition.
In 1985, the West German magazine Bunte published an interview in Damascus with Brunner, accompanied with color photographs. He told the Munich weekly that he had “no bad conscience” about his wartime work. Two years later, a rather widely reported Chicago Tribune interview gave the impression that an unrepentant Brunner admitted involvement in exterminating Jews.
What are the facts? Was Brunner really a mass murderer?
To pin down the truth, Austrian journalist Gerd Honsik flew to Damascus to interview Brunner. Honsik publishes the Austrian periodical Halt, which first made public the important 1948 Müller/Lachout document. (See the Journal of Historical Review, Spring 1988.)
Honsik met and talked at some length with Brunner in August 1987 in his apartment in the Syrian capital. Honsik reported in some detail on the meeting in his book, Freispruch fur Hitler?, which was published last year in Vienna. The illustrated work, which has been banned in Austria, is a collection of statements by 36 “witnesses,” including six former concentration camp inmates and several historians.
Brunner is a bitter and temperamental old man, reports Honsik, and it took some time to win his confidence.
“When did you learn about the gassing of Jews?” Honsik asked. Brunner’s reply: “After the war, from the newspapers!”
Honsik asked about widely reported remarks by Brunner in recent years, such as apparently incriminating comments like “I would do it again.” Actually, this is a reference not to extermination but to deportation work, Honsik relates.
Brunner described his rather cordial relations with Dr. Josef Löwenherz, the wartime head of the Jewish community in Vienna.
With official German authorization, Löwenherz visited Lisbon in neutral Portugal (apparently in 1940 or 1941) to meet with representatives of the World Jewish Congress, including Dr. Parlas, secretary to Chaim Weizmann, and WJC financial affairs director Tropper. Löwenherz wanted to negotiate an agreement for mass emigration of Jews from German-controlled Europe.
After he returned from the Lisbon meeting, Löwenherz “wept when he entered my office,” Brunner told Honsik. The World Jewish Congress officials had told him that the Allies wanted to keep the Jews under German control to increase Germany’s logistic problems. (This is also confirmed in David Wyman’s detailed study, The Abandonment of the Jews, pages 99, 114-115.)
An offer by Löwenherz to exchange Jews in German internment for the 200,000 German nationals who were being held by the British was met with silence.
In reply to a question about Löwenherz’s personality and character, Brunner said that the Jewish leader was “a distinguished character.” To test him. Honsik then asked: “Even though he was a Jew?” Brunner shot back: “There are exceptions! Spare me your sophistry.”
Brunner made sure that the Jewish leader and his family were not interned, and after the war Löwenherz publicly expressed his appreciation for Brunner’s support for a Jewish state by publicly intervening on his behalf. Honsik is not able to be “more specific about this,” he writes, but he adds that this is confirmed in an Austrian court case.
“In addition,” Honsik goes on, “there are five persons living in Austria with whom I am on friendly terms who have confirmed this information in similar conversations with Alois Brunner.”
Brunner is “an innocent man,” and those who believe that he is a mass murderer or criminal are “victims of a great Allied propaganda lie,” Honsik insists.
