Carlos the Jackal - Abu Nidal

Ο Κάρλος το Τσακάλι και ο Abu Nidal ήταν δύο από τους ικανότερους και αγριότερους τρομοκράτες των δεκαετιών 70 και 80. Για την αποφυγή διπλωματικών επεισοδίων η KGB απέφευγε τις σχέσεις μαζί τους, και αντ’αυτού ενθάρρυνε τις μυστικές υπηρεσίες των συμμάχων της Σοβιετικής Ένωσης να τους υποστηρίζουν.



Τον Κάρλος υποστήριζαν οι μυστικές υπηρεσίες της Συρίας, της Λιβύης, και της Ανατολικής Γερμανίας. Η Ανατολική Γερμανία ήταν το El Dorado της τρομοκρατίας. Η Ανατολική Γερμανία δεν ήταν καν χώρα, και ήταν το ορμητήριο της τρομοκρατίας προκειμένου να μην τρώνε την λάσπη οι Σοβιετικοί.

Ο τρομοκράτης από την Βενεζουέλα είχε δολοφονήσει πολλούς αξιωματικούς δυτικών χωρών, και πιστεύεται ότι είχε συμμετοχή στην δολοφονία των Ισραηλινών αθλητών στους Ολυμπιακούς του Μονάχου το 1972, και στην απαγωγή των 11 υπουργών ενέργειας χωρών μελών του ΟΠΕΚ το 1975, καθώς και σε πλήθος άλλων τρομοκρατικών ενεργειών.

Όπως θα διαβάσετε στην Guardian, όταν τον έπιασαν είπε ότι οι Ανατολικές χώρες σταμάτησαν να στηρίζουν την τρομοκρατία την δεκαετία του 80 επειδή τους έδωσαν οι Δυτικοί το καρότο της οικονομικής βοήθειας, με αποτέλεσμα να σταματήσουν να τον στηρίζουν ο Άσαντ, ο Καντάφι και η ΣΤΑΖΙ.

Μετά την κατάρρευση της Σοβιετικής Ένωσης τον Κάρλος παρέδωσε στους Γάλλους το Σουδάν. Ο Κάρλος έκανε μία εγχείρηση στο Σουδάν, και μετά την εγχείρηση οι Σουδανοί τον νάρκωσαν και τον παρέδωσαν στους Γάλλους, αφού μεταξύ άλλων είχε σκοτώσει δύο άνδρες των Γαλλικών μυστικών υπήρεσιών.

“Carlos the Jackal: 'It's not over'”, Οκτώβριος 2000
1st, 2nd, 3rd
For nearly two decades, he was the world's most notorious and feared terrorist, a defiant killer who claimed responsibility for the deaths of 83 people and was linked to the most audacious hijackings of the Cold War era. Since being imprisoned in Paris's La Santé prison in 1994, however, little has been heard from Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, better known as Carlos the Jackal.
But, replying in writing to questions from a French magazine, the 51-year-old spoke freely about his reign of terror. He relished describing his years of cocaine, women and bombings - and recalled his betrayal by the socialist and Arab states who protected and sponsored him in the Seventies and Eighties.
Ramírez appeared laconic and unrepentant. By turns light-hearted and then spouting the anti-imperialist rhetoric that marks him out as a Cold War throwback, the former international revolutionary described himself as 'an old lag'. But he still complained about the conditions of his imprisonment: 'Total isolation, visits forbidden, thus all activity. I'm even forbidden French lessons!'
5η Παράγραφος
The Venezuelan-born terrorist is serving a life sentence for the murders of two French Secret Service agents and a Lebanese national during a gun battle at his Left Bank apartmentin 1975. He is widely believed to be responsible for the seizure of 11 Opec Oil Ministers in Vienna in 1975 and the 1976 Palestinian hijacking of an Air France jet to Uganda. He has also been linked to the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972 and is still under investigation for four terrorist bombings in France.
7th, 8th, 9th , 10th, 11th Paragraphs
Ramírez had a private army of terrorists for hire that operated out of Eastern Europe. 'We could go freely to all the socialist countries, 10 sub-Saharan countries, the majority of Arab countries, and four Asian countries. That's to say, their security services would not threaten us.'
Asked if he had become an irrelevance, the terrorist replied: 'My actions and those that continue to be led by my comrades play a role, minor but not negligible, in the anti-imperialist struggle.'
But Ramírez conceded that the days during which he was protected by Libya's Colonel Gadaffi, Syria's President al-Assad, the Stasi secret police in East Germany, among others, were over thanks to the accommodations that Arab and former socialist states had made with the West in recent years.
From the arrival in the Kremlin of Yuri Andropov (pupil of Beria), the Warsaw Pact countries became hostile to revolutionaries. The Arab countries, submitting to the Yankee swinging of the stick "anti-terrorism" and the carrot of "financial aid", were pushed to betray the militants on their territory. Syria is the best example of it.'
The CIA and French Secret Services gave themselves licence to kill Ramírez, who sought sanctuary in Sudan. But he was betrayed by the very leaders of the country's Islamic revolution who had offered him protection. His drinking and womanising upset those leaders, who concluded he could not be trusted. 'Henceforth, I intend to turn away from women and cocaine, to put myself in conformity with the new republican morality,' he said sardonically. He claimed he was betrayed by the Sudanese 'for money'. In 1994 French agents, eager to seek revenge for the killings of colleagues nearly 20 years earlier in Paris, abducted him from his villa near Khartoum with the assistance of the Sudanese, drugged him and hauled him back to Paris in a sack to stand trial. Ramírez maintains the abduction was illegal.
