Notorious German Anti-semite Asked to Train Egyptian Guerri1xas

Otto Ernst Remer, who was promoted from major to major general for his key role in crushing the 1944 plot against Hitler, and who was the Jew-baiting co-leader of the neo-Nazi Socialist Reich Party until its dissolution last year, is being groomed to train Egyptians In guerrilla warfare against the British, according to Germany’s leading news magazine, “Dr. Spiegel. “

The magazine says that last month Egyptian officials approached the German Embassy in Cairo with a request for German officers who are specialists in guerrilla tactics, but that the Embassy declined. Therefore, the article implies, the Egyptians turned to Remer, who fled to their country a short time ago rather than serve a three-month jail term in Germany.
