According to a report in the news magazine FOCUS, a former Arab informant for the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) spied on the President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster, 68, apparently for Iran’s secret service. The Cologne security authorities came to this conclusion through an extensive investigation into the suspect Aladin Mohamed H., 49, who lives in Stuttgart.
The intensive technical monitoring of the telecommunications of the former BfV spy showed that the Iraqi was connected to the notorious Iranian secret service MOIS, according to FOCUS with reference to Berlin security circles. Tehran’s agent headquarters are held responsible for numerous deadly attacks on opponents of the mullahs’ regime worldwide.
With the help of local agents such as Aladin Mohamed H., the “Quds Force” killer squad used for this purpose collects sensitive data for planning attacks. This includes information about the life and everyday life of the people spied on, as well as details about family relationships, place of residence, routes, voluntary work and social networks.
According to FOCUS information, the suspected terror helper H., who was born in Damascus, worked for the BfV for almost six years. He provided specialist department 6, responsible for monitoring dangerous Islamists, with information about radical circles. Department 4, which was active in defending against foreign spies, used the informer H. several times. The stocky agent mostly acted as a cameraman and under this legend visited his contacts in the greater Frankfurt area as well as in Nuremberg and Stuttgart.
The BfV did not want to confirm or deny that Schuster was endangered with regard to “any operational measures”. Central Council Chairman Schuster, who was re-elected this week, also declined to comment. He told FOCUS through a spokesman that he was very often threatened in his office.
The endangerment of potential targets like Josef Schuster has increased significantly in the past two years. On Wednesday this week, the secret services of Great Britain, Canada and the USA issued urgent warnings of attacks on Jewish representatives, Iranian dissidents and journalists. According to intelligence services, Tehran’s local agents hire Muslim fanatics or common criminals to prepare and carry out individual attacks.
