Abstract: We consider harmonic functions with respect to the operator

\begin{displaymath}\mathcal{L} u(x)=\int [u(x+h)-u(x)-1_{(\vert h\vert\leq 1)} h\cdot \nabla u(x)] n(x,h) \, dh. \end{displaymath}

Under suitable conditions on $n(x,h)$ we establish a Harnack inequality for functions that are nonnegative and harmonic in a domain. The operator $\mathcal{L}$ is allowed to be anisotropic and of variable order.
