    Bobby Fischer is a great comedian. Unlike the Jews, I do not think he is crazy. But since he is half-Jewish, he is certainly very eccentric as an individual who rants against Jews so much. Perhaps he enjoys the attention... who knows. There is megalomania in his personality. He is, however, an iconic figure for some anti-Semites and chess fans, and his extreme political views add to his mystique.

    I would not say he is an "over-all genius," as he claims: he is an example of a person whose genius is limited to one area.
    "The great African, the great ancient African! Here you have an expression, ancient African, which can be opposed to modern European, and which is at least of equal value. St. Augustine was African and he was of the ancient world; so was Tertullian. And why should we not say: 'We must Africanize ourselves ancientwise,' or 'We must ancientize ourselves Africanwise?'"

    The Fischer king

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/...444253,00.html

    Chess genius, cold warrior turned al-Qaida enthusiast ... and now citizen of Iceland. Stephen Moss salutes a living legend

    Wednesday March 23, 2005


    Bobby Fischer in 1971: 'All I want to do, ever, is play chess.' Photograph: AP


    Bobby Fischer may just have played his most brilliant move. Holed up in a Japanese detention centre, with his native US wanting him deported on charges of tax evasion and sanctions-busting - not to mention going on Filipino radio to congratulate al-Qaida over the September 11 attacks - he has successfully applied for Icelandic citizenship and news reports suggest he will board a plane for Iceland tomorrow. What a denouement: on the brink of being checkmated, he has produced a brilliancy to win the game.

    Why, though, is Fischer still news? In chess terms he has been defunct since 1972, when he won the world title by beating the Soviet player Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, the Icelandic capital. He could not agree terms for a defence of his crown with Fide, the world governing body of chess, and was stripped of his title in 1975. In effect, he has not played competitively since the age of 29. He did return to play Spassky again in war-torn Yugoslavia (the source of the sanctions-busting allegations) in 1992, but that was a match played for money by two ageing superstars. The chess was OK, but not sensational. All the pundits agreed that they were past their best.


    So why the obsession with this reclusive, dysfunctional, tempestuous 62-year-old American chess genius? Those adjectives, in part, answer the question: in the kingdom of the bland, the mesmerisingly manic man is king. Fischer is larger than life: he meets the world's idea of what a chess player should be - crazed, obsessed by the game, able to express himself solely through chess combinations.

    In reality, many players are not like that - they have the souls of accountants. The current world champion, Vladimir Kramnik, is a polite, anonymous figure in a suit. But Fischer walks the walk. There was a wonderful story that while in detention in Tokyo, he biffed a guard because his boiled egg wasn't soft enough and was given five days in solitary. Who knows if the story is true, but it should have been. The former British champion Bill Hartston said that "chess doesn't drive people mad, it keeps mad people sane". Discuss with reference to the career of Robert James Fischer.

    Fischer was born in Chicago in 1943 but grew up in Brooklyn, where his mother moved after she divorced Bobby's father. The parental split and Fischer's apparent inability to come to terms with his mother's Jewishness may have led to his later dysfunctionality. As a teenager, the board was his world - those perfectly regulated 64 squares, an easy-to-understand set of laws, the excitement of battle, the thrill of victory. Life in black and white. "All I want to do, ever, is play chess," he said. And that's what he did, becoming US national champion at the absurd age of 14, a grandmaster at 15 - then the youngest ever.

    The basis of the Fischer legend as a chess player (as opposed to a crackpot celebrity) are his results in the series of games that propelled him to the world championship match with Spassky. He won 20 consecutive games against the world's leading grandmasters. Grandmaster chess is draw-heavy; the player with black, who has second turn, is at a serious disadvantage. Most GMs are happy with a draw as black. Fischer wasn't.

    In the period from 1970-72, he annihilated all-comers. Add a dash of Tiger Woods during his amazing winning streak to a soupēon of Roger Federer, multiply by 10, and you get some idea of what Fischer achieved in that period. He was extraordinary, unbeatable, bursting with fresh ideas. His famous book, My 60 Memorable Games, is full of brilliancies - and full, too, of putdowns of his opponents. He enjoyed a period of dominance unique in chess. Even the great Garry Kasparov, at his peak in the late 1980s, had occasionally to concede a draw.

    In Iceland, Fischer went on to beat Spassky - and the mighty Soviet chess machine that had dominated chess since the war. Fischer then was the darling of America - the perfect cold warrior, virulently anti-communist, one wacky individual taking on a chess dynasty and triumphing. How times have changed! His victory in Iceland - followed avidly by the media, endless written about since - singlehandedly created a chess boom in the west. England's great generation of players in the 1980s can be traced directly to the inspiration of that match. He changed the history of chess, made it a global phenomenon.

    And then, after winning the world title, he quit. At the absolute top of his game, he quit. In that sense, he is the James Dean of chess. We never saw him struggling at the chess board, losing to players who in the early 1970s would have quailed at the prospect of playing him. Choosing not to play, saying he was bored by orthodox chess and developing a system called Fischer randomchess (in which the pieces are randomly distributed at the beginning of each game), only added lustre to the legend.

    For the past 30 years he has roamed the world like the Flying Dutchman, looking for who knows what. He has groups of friends and supporters all over the world - Hungary, the Philippines, Japan, Iceland, where he is revered for what he achieved in 1972. Though how must those friends feel when he suddenly pitches up - and do they know how he likes his boiled eggs done?

    In chess circles a frequently asked question is: "Is Fischer mad?" His behaviour became increasingly erratic after he quit competitive chess in 1975. In 1981, while staying in the US, he was arrested and held for 48 hours on suspicion of bank robbery. Fischer, who had refused to give his real name to the police, was furious and produced a pamphlet called I Was Tortured in the Pasadena Jailhouse!"

    His condemnation of the US following the September 11 attacks was an act of lunacy too far. "This is all wonderful news," he announced live on Filipino radio. "I applaud the act. The US and Israel have been slaughtering the Palestinians, just slaughtering them, for years. Robbing them and slaughtering them. Nobody gave a shit. Now it's coming back to the US. **** the US. I want to see the US wiped out. Death to the US." The US authorities had hardly pursued the charge of sanctions busting before that onslaught; now Fischer became public enemy number one.

    Fischer loathes authority and doesn't believe normal rules apply to him. "I'm Bobby Fischer and I'm a genius," he once told a young Hungarian in an attempt to persuade her to dump the "ordinary guy" to whom she was engaged and marry him instead. It didn't work. He has never really moved on from 1972: he still believes he is world champion and has never come to terms with the end of the cold war. He is reported to have had all the fillings from his teeth removed because he feared the Russians were transmitting radio signals to his brain.

    Spassky reported him to be normal and businesslike at their two-month encounter in 1992, though the list of requirements Fischer filed to the Serbian organisers was characteristically batty: he wanted 15 armed bodyguards, demanded a particular type of chess table, even specified the height of the toilets. "We spent a day with his lawyer discussing the knight," said one official. "Fischer said the horse's nose was too long." Many believe Fischer to be the greatest player of all time. Kasparov, who himself retired recently at the age of 41, had a higher official rating, but that may be misleading - there is an element of inflation in ratings over time. One thing is certain: a match between the two would be a media sensation. Even if they played now, it would be a multimillion-dollar event. How galling it must be for active grandmasters that the world is focused entirely on these two retired rogue bulls of the board. Fischer v Kasparov in Reykjavik some time next year? Why not? See you there!

    Fischer leaves Japan for Iceland

    After his release Fischer went straight to Tokyo airport

    Former world chess champion Bobby Fischer has left Japan for Iceland following his release from an eight-month detention.

    The 62-year-old took an aeroplane to Copenhagen, from where he plans to fly to Iceland. The country has granted him a passport and citizenship.

    The American is wanted in the US for breaking international sanctions by playing a match in Yugoslavia in 1992.

    He was detained in July trying to leave Japan using a revoked US passport.

    "I won't be free until I get out of Japan," Mr Fischer told reporters as he arrived at Tokyo's Narita airport.




    Why Iceland's fond of Fischer



    "This was not an arrest. It was a kidnapping cooked up by Bush and Koizumi," he said, referring to US President George W Bush and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi.

    Mr Fischer's lawyer, Masako Suzuki, said the chess icon had "smiled from the bottom of his heart when he boarded the plane".

    Mr Fischer was granted Icelandic citizenship after a vote in the country's parliament on Monday.

    The former champion has many supporters in Iceland, after playing a world championship match there in 1972 at the height of the Cold War, beating the Soviet Union's Boris Spassky.

    Japan's justice ministry decided to let Mr Fischer travel to Iceland after being shown documents proving Mr Fischer had been granted Icelandic citizenship, Japanese reports said.

    The US said it was disappointed at the move. "Mr Fischer is a fugitive from justice," said a US state department spokesman.

    Scuffle with guards

    The reclusive Mr Fischer had lived undetected in Japan for a number of years with fiancee Miyoko Watai, a former Japanese chess champion.

    He was arrested and threatened with deportation when he tried to leave Japan for the Philippines last July using a US passport that had allegedly been revoked.

    Since then he has mounted a string of protests, including claims for political asylum, in attempts to avoid being repatriated.

    His supporters say he has been under heavy stress in jail. He was held for four days in solitary confinement earlier this month after scuffling with guards in an argument over a boiled egg. Mr Fischer's supporters say the US deportation order is politically motivated. The American exile angered many of his fellow countrymen when he went on Philippine radio on 11 September 2001, applauding the attacks on the US on that day and launching into an anti-Semitic diatribe.

    What right does he have to claim Icelandic citizenship? Because he once played chess there? Perhaps I'll take a trip to Iceland, eat at a restaurant and then claim "a little bit of Iceland will always be in me" so gimme citizenship!
    It's got to be that easy surely.

    Looks like Mr. Fischer has had more luck than say, Ernst Zundel. Good for him, and I wish him a peaceful life in Iceland. :food-smil

    Edit:

    Could it be that Fischer has had more luck standing up to the Jews because he's partly Jewish himself?

    Haven't you read anything yet? Do you even know who is Bobby Fischer? Don't make such idiotic postings on this forum, please.

    By far the majority of Icelanders love Bobby Fischer - and that makes me respect Icelanders greatly. They are a tough little nation who stand up to American folly. You can bet your ass that Bobby Fischer will campaign against things like multiculturalism and EU-entry in Iceland. He will be a good influence for the country.
