A Satanist whose work is said to have influenced double killer Danyal Hussein has been removed from Facebook and Instagram following an investigation by the PA news agency.
Hussein, 19, stabbed sisters Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, to death in a Wembley park after making a blood pact with a demon.
Since his Old Bailey trial, it has emerged that he was an active member of the online Becoming A Living God forum, created by black magician EA Koetting.
Parts of Hussein’s commitment to “sacrifice” women for power and wealth appear to stem from the work of the American author.
Yet Koetting continued to promote his books to over 200,000 subscribers on Facebook and YouTube.
Following PA’s investigation with the Radical Right Analysis Center (C4ARR), Facebook said it deleted Koetting’s page and Instagram account for violating its policies on dangerous individuals and organizations.
YouTube was contacted on Monday but has yet to comment.
Professor Matthew Feldman, director of C4ARR, said some of Koetting’s work could constitute incitement to murder.
He said: “This is the best example I have come across of someone who says this is what you have to do to become strong, powerful, rich.
“He has 87,000 YouTube subscribers and 128,000 on Facebook.”
“If 0.1% of people take this seriously, as Danyal Hussein clearly did, and think this is what I need to do to become famous, that makes 200 potential murderers.”
In his blood pact with King Lucifuge Rofocale, Hussein pledged to “sacrifice” six women every six months to win a jackpot in the lottery.
Professor Feldman said Koetting wrote about sacrificing blood to become rich, attractive and powerful – and even named the same demon, Lucifuge Rofocale.
His texts also highlighted murder without cause and the making of a blood pact.
Professor Feldman continued, “Koetting’s written works include texts that openly discuss and encourage murder.
“A book, Works Of Darkness, describes how to murder another person with a knife during a ritual sacrifice.
“Another book, Apex Of Eternity, advises people to study the Terrorist Handbook, provides practical advice on how to kill another person.”
He quotes child murderer Ian Brady as saying, “Always remember the first rule of murder: never kill someone you have a reason to kill.
One passage says, “What we are looking for are the knowledge and skills to kill with any weapon, unarmed and from a distance (such as with explosives or traps).
Professor Feldman said: “The text, especially the paragraphs and taken as a whole, may constitute incitement to murder. “
Apex Of Eternity was written for a Nazi Satanist organization called Tempel ov Blood (sic), which was cited as a major influence in seven recent UK terrorism prosecutions, six of which involved teenagers.
Tempel ov Blood is believed to be the American branch of the UK-based Nazi satanist group Order of Nine Angles (O9A).
In an apparent reference to Tempel ov Blood, Koetting wrote in one of his books that he had joined “an American cell of the famous British Order of the Nine Angles”.
In a YouTube video, which has been viewed over 17,000 times, Koetting talks about human sacrifice.
He says, “When you destroy the victim, there is a release, a massive explosion of power and energy.
“If you can harness that and push it toward a goal, it’s powerful beyond most other forms of magic.” It is without a doubt the darkest magic.
He later adds a caveat that he is not advocating harming anyone “to legally cover me”.
Koetting follows a malignant form of Satanism called the left hand path, which originated from the nonviolent right hand path, which generally promotes white magic like ouija boards.
This summer also saw another double murder in Russia allegedly linked to a Satanist sect.
Professor Feldman suggested that more could be done to support moderators of online content, and that social media companies should “dive deep” into the background of figures like Koetting when they reach 10,000 subscribers.
Hope Not Hate, who fights right-wing extremism, has already called for O9A to be banned by the government.
In April, Nick Lowles, CEO of Hope Not Hate, said: “Since we began warning of the growing influence of O9A, a serving US soldier has been charged with planning a terrorist attack with members of O9A, and the Canadian government has also taken action against the group. . “
Patrik Hermansson, researcher for Hope Not Hate, told PA: “I don’t think O9A propaganda should be available on mainstream media platforms. We would ask for bans on this.
But he added: “It will not be enough to limit access to equipment.
“We think these things fundamentally encourage terrorism, so we have to go after the organizations themselves. “
Ludo Orlando, co-founder of Reclaim These Streets, said there was an “undeniable link between far-right ideology and misogyny”.
She said: “We live in a society where sexual assault is seen as an ‘important topic’ by far-right channels and we are surrounded by a culture that not only accepts violence against women but supports it.
“These dangerous ideas and women’s feelings of rights and ownership are dangerous and need to be stopped instead of being advertised and disseminated on sites like Facebook or YouTube.
“We need all the tools we can to protect the lives of women, including making misogyny a hate crime to allow prosecution.”
The PA news agency has contacted EA Koetting for comment.
