US Actively Promoting Militarism in Africa!

  • The United States is better off sending funds to Africa rather than troops, to encourage participation and dialogue between the various groups, an analyst tells Press TV. The Pentagon has set up an army brigade consisting of 3,500 combat troops to its Africa Command, to be deployed to as many as 35 African nations to train local forces. Press TV has conducted an interview with Nii Akuetteh, an African policy analyst, from Washington, to further discuss the issue.
  • Daniel 7:23 (New King James Version)
    23 “Thus he said:
    ‘The fourth beast shall be
    A fourth kingdom on earth,
    Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
    And shall devour the whole earth,

    Trample it and break it in pieces.

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules!

  • Embry: Catastrophic Loss Of Confidence To Spike Gold & Silver! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today John Embry told King World News that a coming catastrophic loss of confidence will push gold and silver to price levels that most investors can’t even fathom.  He also spoke about what to expect in 2013. Here is what Embry, who is chief investment strategist at Sprott Asset Management, had to say:  “I have been following the manipulation of the gold and silver markets for over 14 years now, and I can honestly say that I’m not sure I’ve seen a more blatant attempt to drive prices lower for no reason whatsoever.”

    “There is no reason out there which could be used to explain why gold and silver prices would be under pressure.  So I would love to know what the central planners are thinking here.  I believe, and this might have been referred to in the interview you did with Gerald Celente, that this is all about confidence. When you are running a pure fiat currency system, confidence is the only thing you have to keep things together….

Banking on Criminality: Drug Money and the Above-the-Law Global Banking Cartel !

1912-wall-street-banksters-cartoon

  • At the heart of the power of the western Illuminati is their global fiat currency hegemony/cartel expressed mainly through the world reserve currency the USD (and to a lesser extent also the Euro, JPY, UKP… ). Major western global banks are Illuminist owned/controlled.

    Banking on Criminality: Drug Money and the Above-the-Law Global Banking Cartel! 
    by Andrew Gavin Marshall, http://www.blacklistednews.com/ 
    In what the New York Times declared as a “dark day for the rule of law” on December 11, 2012, HSBC, the world’s second largest bank, failed to be indicted for extensive criminal activities in laundering money to and from regimes under sanctions, Mexican drug cartels, and terrorist organizations (including al-Qaeda). While admitting culpability, and with guilt assured, state and federal authorities in the United States decided not to indict the bank “over concerns that criminal charges could jeopardize one of the world’s largest banks and ultimately destabilize the global financial system.” Instead, HSBC agreed to pay a $1.92 billion settlement.

    The fear was that an indictment would be a “death sentence” for HSBC. The U.S. Justice Department, which was prosecuting the case, was told by the U.S. Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve that taking such an “aggressive stance” against HSBC could have negative effects upon the economy. Instead, the bank was to forfeit $1.2 billion and pay $700 million in fines on top of that for violating the Bank Secrecy Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act. In a statement, HSBC’s CEO stated, “We accept responsibility for our past mistakes… We are committed to protecting the integrity of the global financial system. To this end, we will continue to work closely with governments and regulators around the world.” With more than $7 billion in Mexican drug cartel money laundered through HSBC alone, the fine amounts to a slap on the wrist, no more than a cost-benefit analysis of doing business: if the ‘cost’ of laundering billions in drug money is less than the ‘benefit,’ the policy will continue.

    As part of the settlement, not one banker at HSBC was to be charged in the case. The New York Times acknowledged that, “the government has bought into the notion that too big to fail is too big to jail.” HSBC joins a list of some of the world’s other largest banks in paying fines for criminal activities, including Credit Suisse, Lloyds, ABN Amro and ING, among others. The U.S. Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer referred to the settlement as an example of HSBC “being held accountable for stunning failures of oversight.” Lanny Breuer, who heads the Justice Department’s criminal division, which was responsible for prosecuting the case against HSBC, was previously a partner at a law firm (along with the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder) where they represented a number of major banks and other conglomerates in cases dealing with foreclosure fraud. While Breuer and Holder were partners at Covington & Burling, the firm represented notable clients such as Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo, among others. It seems that at the Justice Department, they continue to have the same job: protecting the major banks from being persecuted for criminal behaviour.

    With a great deal of focus on the $1.9 billion in fines being paid out by HSBC, little mention was made of the fact that HSBC had roughly $2.5 trillion in assets, and earned  $22 billion in profits in 2011. But not to worry, HSBC’s  executive said that they “accept responsibility for our past mistakes,” and added: “We have said we are profoundly sorry for them, and we do so again.” So not only did the executives of the world’s second largest bank apologize for laundering billions in drug money (along with other crimes), but they apologized… again. Thus, they pay a comparably small fine and face no criminal charges. I wonder if a crack dealer from a ghetto in the United States could avoid criminal prosecution if he were to apologize not once, but twice. Actually, we don’t have to wonder. In May of 2012, as HSBC executives were testifying before the U.S. Senate in Washington D.C., admitting their role in drug money laundering, a poor black man was convicted of peddling 5.5 grams of crack cocaine just across the river from the U.S. Capitol building, and he was given 10 years in prison.

    Back in August the bank stated that they had put aside $700 million to pay fines for illegal activities, which conveniently was the exact amount they were fined by the U.S. Justice Department (not including the forfeiture of profits). Lanny Breuer declared the settlement to be “a very just, very real and very powerful result.” Indeed, one could agree that the results are “powerful” and “very real,” in that they provide a legal state-sanctioned decision that big banks will not be persecuted for their vast criminal activities, precisely because they are big banks. The “very real” result of this is that we can guarantee that such criminal behaviour will continue, since the banks will continue to be protected by the state. With news of the settlement, HSBC’s market share price rose by 2.8%, a clear sign that “financial markets” also reward criminal behaviour and the “pervasively polluted” culture at HSBC (in the words of the U.S. Senate report).

    Jack Blum, a Washington attorney and former special counsel for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who specializes in money laundering and financial crimes stated that, “If these people aren’t prosecuted, who will be?” He further asked: “What do you have to do to be prosecuted? They have crossed every bright line in bank compliance. When is there an offense that’s bad enough for a big bank to be prosecuted?” But the Justice Department’s Lanny Breuer explained that his department had to consider “the collateral consequences” of prosecutions: “If you prosecute one of the largest banks in the world, do you risk that people will lose their jobs, other financial institutions and other parties will leave the bank, and there will be some kind of event in the world economy?”

    In other words, the U.S. Justice Department decided that big banks are above the law, because if they weren’t, there would be severe consequences for the financial system. And this is not just good news for HSBC, the “favourite” bank of Mexican drug cartels (according to Bloomberg), but it’s good news for all banks. After all, HSBC is not the only bank engaged in laundering drug money and other illegal activities. Back in 2010, Wachovia (now part of Wells Fargo) paid roughly $160 million in fines for laundering some $378.4 billion in drug money. Drug money has also been found to be laundered through other major financial institutions, including Bank of America, Banco Santander, Citigroup, and the banking branch of American Express. Nearly all of the world’s largest banks have been or are currently being investigated for other crimes, including rigging interest rates (in what’s known as the Libor scandal), and other forms of fraud. Among the banks being investigated for criminal activity by U.S. prosecutors are Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS, Bank of America, Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi, Credit Suisse, Lloyds, Rabobank, Royal Bank of Canada, and Société Générale, among others. Regulators and investigators of the Libor scandal – “the biggest financial scandal ever” – report that the world’s largest banks engage in “organized fraud” and function like a “cartel” or “mafia.”

Ad in South African Paper Boasts of ‘Growing Number of Jews’ Who Unconditionally Oppose Israeli Policies!

MailGuardian-Newspaper-14-December-2012_BDSAfrica_Advertisement

  • The idea that all Jews support the genocidal and apartheid policies of Zionist ‘666’ Israel is false! The idea that Jews are responsible for all the world’s ills is also false. It is not a Jewish conspiracy. It is a Satanic conspiracy against all humanity including Jews! Jews are simply deep cover for the Illuminati, Zionist Synagogue of Satan.
  • Ad in South African paper boasts of ‘growing number of Jews’ who unconditionally oppose Israeli policies! 
    by BDS SOUTH AFRICA, http://mondoweiss.net/ 
    BDS South Africa has sent out a press release about a powerful ad in South Africa’s Mail  & Guardian, a weekly newspaper. The ad read as follows:

    AS JEWS, WITH OUR OWN PAINFUL HISTORY OF OPPRESSION… 
    “The temptation is to speak in muffled tones about an issue such as the right of the people of Palestine … yet we would be less than human if we did so.”

    – NELSON R. MANDELA

    As Jews, with our own painful history of oppression, we are compelled to speak out against human rights violations being committed by the State of Israel – in our name – against the Palestinian people.

    We note that the South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD) together with the South African Zionist Federation (SAZF), recently met with the South African Presidency and other politicians. We also note, with great concern, the SAJBD and SAZF’s assertion that they represent and speak on behalf of all Jewish South Africans, particularly when it comes to Palestine-Israel.

    Let us be clear, the SAJBD and SAZF’s position of supporting Israel at all costs does not represent us. We also appeal to the SAJBD and SAZF to respect one of the hallmarks of Judaism: respectful debate amongst those who hold divergent viewpoints. The SAJBD and SAZF’s position on Israel, and attempts to stifle opposing voices that speak out against Israel, is morally untenable.

    The Jewish community is neither homogeneous nor monolithic.  There is a growing number of Jews, in South Africa and around the world, who are organising to form alternative spaces and who unconditionally oppose Israeli policies and practices that shamefully privilege Jews over the indigenous Palestinian people.  In this vein, we support the non-violent campaign of applying Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it abides by international law and respects basic human rights [see www.bdsmovement.net].

    We are encouraged that our South African government is joining those countries that are taking a clear stance against Israel’s violations of international law and its acts of violence against the Palestinian people [ see this City Press newspaper article]. We also welcome and support our Department of Trade and Industry’s initiative to prevent the false labelling of Israeli settlement products [see this Israeli Ha’aretz newspaper article]. We hope that the ANC and the SA Government goes further and completely bans Israeli settlement products. Israeli settlements are in clear violation of international law and seriously undermine any chance of negotiations and a just peace.

    Such positions as those recently taken by our government against Israeli violence and violations of international law, in fact, serve to affirm a proud Jewish tradition of respect for justice and human rights; regardless of race, religion or creed. Such positions connect us to our fellow humanity.

    We humbly – and sadly – acknowledge that our voices may not be the dominant ones in our community, but neither were Dietrich Bonnhoefer’s in Nazi Germany nor Beyers Naude’s, Antjie Krog’s, Braam Fischer’s and Joe Slovo’s in Apartheid South Africa.

    Our individual consciences, our Jewish tradition and our painful history compel us to declare to the SAJBD, SAZF and to the Israeli government that we will continue to speak out and take a stand for justice and human rights.  Taking such a stand is in the very interests of being Jewish. For when we proclaim “Never Again”, we should mean “Never Again”, unconditionally, and to any human being – including the Palestinians.

    Issued by Alan Horwitz for StopTheJNF, a campaign initiated by a group of Jewish South Africans committed to justice and rights for the Palestinian people and Jewish Israelis. Find the original statement and more information here: BDS South Africa: Stop the JNF South Africa

    BDS South Africa adds:
    Mentioned in the above statement is Joe Slovo: the well-known South African Treason Trialist, founding member of the South African Congress of Democrats, the former South African Communist Party General-Secretary, the Chief of Staff  during the 1980s of the African National Congress’ armed wing (Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK)) and a leading NEC member of South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC). Slovo, who was born Jewish, was an outspoken critic of Apartheid South Africa as well as a consistent critic of the Israeli regime – which he also considered an Apartheid state.

    In fact, Slovo publicly exposed and highlighted the shameful military collaborations during the 1970s and 1980s between Israel and apartheid-era South Africa (see this UK Guardian newspaper article). In an unfinished autobiography, Joe Slovo wrote: “Ironically enough, the horrors of the Holocaust became the rationalization [by Israeli supporters] for … acts of genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine. Those of us who, in the years that were to follow, raised our voices publicly against the violent apartheid of the Israeli state were vilified…”.

  • 2012: Calm Before The Storm! 
    by Gordon T. Long of GordonTLong.com , via http://www.zerohedge.com/
    We have a new era dawning in Global Monetary policy. It is a new day with the monetary skies already red. Within 90 days the captains of monetary policy have steered the world into uncharted waters and on a course that history warns us against. Federal Reserve: QE3 “Unlimited” and QE4 within 90 days, ECB: OMT “Uncapped”, BoJ: QE 10 and the newly elected Prime Minister Abe’s mandate for “Inflation at any cost” BoE: UK’s newly appointed BoE Governor, Mark Carney’s Monetary Evan Rule targeting. These untested and newly commissioned captains all have PhD’s from the finest Economic schools in the world, but they clearly have not studied nor grasped the key lessons of history. To any sane person, who has a grasp of what is presently occurring, it is obvious that the current state of affairs is unsustainable. The question is how long can the Monetary Captains’ misguided policies keep us off the shoals of our economic destruction. How long can policies of “Extend and Pretend”, Kick the Can Down the Road” or “Fake it Until You Make It” continue? The answer is likely unknowable, the certainty of it ending badly is not.

1000x Systemic Leverage: $600 Trillion In Gross Derivatives “Backed” By $600 Billion In Collateral !

These derivatives are largely worthless when Marked to Market!

These derivatives are largely worthless when Marked to Market!

  • The financial derivatives figure is probably closer to US$1.5 Quadrillion ie. US$1,500 Trillion than US$600 Trillion!

    1000x Systemic Leverage: $600 Trillion In Gross Derivatives “Backed” By $600 Billion In Collateral ! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/ 
    There is much debate whether when it comes to the total notional size of outstanding derivatives, it is the gross notional that matters (roughly $600 trillion), or the amount which takes out biletaral netting and other offsetting positions (much lower). We explained previously how gross is irrelevant… until it is, i.e. until there is a breach in the counterparty chain and suddenly all net becomes gross (as in the case of the Lehman bankruptcy), such as during a financial crisis, i.e., the only time when gross derivative exposure becomes material (er, by definition).

    But a bigger question is what is the actual collateral backing this gargantuan market which is about 10 times greater than the world’s combined GDP, because as the “derivative” name implies all this exposure is backed on some dedicated, real assets, somewhere. Luckily, the IMF recently released a discussion note titled “Shadow Banking: Economics and Policy” where quietly hidden in one of the appendices it answers precisely this critical question. The bottom line: $600 trillion in gross notional derivatives backed by a tiny $600 billion in real assets: a whopping 0.1% margin requirement! Surely nothing can possibly go wrong with this amount of unprecedented 1000x systemic leverage.

    From the IMF:

    Over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives markets straddle regulated systemically important financial institutions and the shadow banking world. Recent regulatory efforts focus on moving OTC derivatives contracts to central counterparties (CCPs). A CCP will be collecting collateral and netting bilateral positions. While CCPs do not have explicit taxpayer backing, they may be supported in times of stress. For example, the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act allows the Federal Reserve to lend to key financial market infrastructures during times of crises. Incentives to move OTC contracts could come from increasing bank capital charges on OTC positions that are not moved to CCP (BCBS, 2012).

    The notional value of OTC contracts is about $600 trillion, but while much cited, that number overstates the still very sizable risks. A better estimate may be based on adding “in-the-money” (or gross positive value) and “out-of-the money” (or gross negative value) derivative positions (to obtain total exposures), further reduced by the “netting” of related positions. Once these are taken into account, the resulting exposures are currently about $3 trillion, down from $5 trillion (see table below; see also BIS, 2012, and Singh, 2010).

Hyperinflation: QEV Looms!

FedRes_ATM_Dollars_being_printed

  • Hyperinflation: QEV Looms! 
    by http://larouchepac.com/ 
    The probable lack of a broad White House/Congressional austerity agreement in 2012, will likely mean an intensification of Federal Reserve hyperinflation policy in 2013.

    Helicopter Ben Bernanke has already announced the “QEIV” policy to escalate on Jan. 1, purchasing a 2013 level of $1.1 trillion in securities from the big banks, winding up owning a third of the entire U.S. Treasury market and a quarter of the GDP, and buying 70-80% of all fixed-income securities issued in the United States in 2013.

    But two weeks ago Bernanke also warned he would escalate the money-printing further in 2013 if 2012 ended with no solution to the “problem” he invented, the so-called fiscal cliff. Bloomberg TV asked, “If the policymakers were not to agree to some sort of deficit deal by the end of this year and we were to go over the fiscal cliff, … the size of these asset purchases could indeed grow in response to that?” Bernanke’s response: “Yes. If the economy actually went off the fiscal cliff, our assessment, the CBOs assessment, outside forecasters, all think that that would have very significant adverse effects on the economy and on the unemployment rate. And so, … we would try to do what we could. We would perhaps increase a bit.” “A bit” is reported likely to be $110-120 billion/month in money-printing.

Pope’s Child Porn ‘Normal’ Claim Sparks Outrage Among Victims!

http://www.henrymakow.com/malachi_martin_--.html

Lucifer/Satan enthroned in the Vatican in 1963? Malachi Martin testified of it ! Click on image to goto article!

  • To all those who insist that the Vatican has not been taken over by Satanists: You are an IDIOT! Pedophilia is a favorite pastime of Satanists. It goes all the way from child molestation, sexual abuse … to the human sacrifice of a young child to Lucifer/Satan (on the summer and winter solstice (21 Dec 2012))!
  • Pope’s child porn ‘normal’ claim sparks outrage among victims! 
    by http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/ 
    Victims of clerical sex abuse have reacted furiously to Pope Benedict’s claim   yesterday that paedophilia wasn’t considered an “absolute evil” as recently    as the 1970s.

    In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials    working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was    increasingly considered “normal” by society.

    “In the 1970s, paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity  with   man and even with children,” the Pope said. “It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there   is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a   ‘better  than’ and a ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

    The Pope said abuse revelations in 2010 reached “an unimaginable dimension”   which brought “humiliation” on the Church. Asking how abuse exploded within the Church, the Pontiff called on senior  clerics “to repair as much as possible the injustices that occurred” and to  help victims heal through a better presentation of the Christian message.

    “We cannot remain silent about the context of these times in which these    events have come to light,” he said, citing the growth of child pornography “that seems in some way to be considered more and more normal by society” he  said.

    But outraged Dublin victim Andrew Madden last night insisted that child abuse   was not considered normal in the company he kept. Mr Madden accused the Pope of not knowing that child pornography was the viewing of images of children being sexually abused, and should be named as such.

    He said: “That is not normal. I don’t know what company the Pope has been  keeping for the past 50 years.” Pope Benedict also said sex tourism in the Third World was “threatening an entire generation”.

    Angry abuse victims in America last night said that while some Church    officials have blamed the liberalism of the 1960s for the Church’s sex abuse    scandals and cover-up catastrophes, Pope Benedict had come up with a new    theory of blaming the 1970s.

    “Catholics should be embarrassed to hear their Pope talk again and again  about   abuse while doing little or nothing to stop it and to mischaracterise  this   heinous crisis,” said Barbara Blaine, the head of SNAP, the Survivors    Network of those Abused by Priests,

    “It is fundamentally disturbing to watch a brilliant man so conveniently misdiagnose a horrific scandal,” she added. “The Pope insists on talking about a vague ‘broader context’ he can’t  control,   while ignoring the clear ‘broader context’ he can influence — the  long-standing and unhealthy culture of a rigid, secretive, all-male Church  hierarchy fixated on self-preservation at all costs. This is the ‘context’   that matters.”

    The latest controversy comes as the German magazine Der Spiegel continues to   investigate the Pope’s role in allowing a known paedophile priest to work with children in the early 1980s.

US Drastically Expanding Military Presence in the Philippines!

http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html

“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” ~ Henry Kissinger (Committee of 300).

  • I am neither pro Philippines/America nor pro China. I am pro humanity and anti Satanists, anti Illuminati. Whether it is the western Illuminati or Russian Illuminati or the Chinese Illuminati … I am anti ALL of them.
  • The sheeple are being screwed. This is about the encirclement of Russia/China and setting the stage for a world war against China/Russia using proxies ie: Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, South Korea … etc. This has nothing to do with protecting/defending the Philippines sheeple or Chinese sheeple. These are just convenient excuses to lead the sheeple to war against one another for the benefit of the Luciferian New World Order! Never get involve militarily in any of these Illuminist generated wars!
  • US drastically expanding military presence in the Philippines! 
    by http://rt.com/ 
    The US will significantly increase its military presence in the Philippines – an announcement that has angered China, whose Communist Party chief urged his military to prepare for a struggle and whose state-run media have criticized the agreement.

    The US announced in 2011 that it would increase joint training exercises and ship visits to the Philippines in order to counter China’s growing influence in the region. These visits have been welcomed by Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III.

    This month, the US announced that it would increase the number of troops, aircraft and ships that rotate through the Philippines. The announcement was made during the 3rd Phillipines-United States Bilateral Strategic Dialogue in Manila, which was held Dec. 11-12. The two countries are expected to sign a five-year joint US-Philippine military exercise plan in their upcoming meetings, The Diplomat reported.

    “There has been no discussion yet on specifics [of in-country military equipment] … (these are) policy consultations and the specifics would be determined by the technical working groups,” Lorenzo Batino, the Philippines deputy defense minister said at the annual dialogue.

    The US presence would likely guard against Chinese influence and try to contain the Communist country’s rising military and economic power. China has territorial claims across the South China Sea and dominates relations with members of the Associations of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), including the Philippines, with which it has overlapping claims of the Spratly islands. For years, the US has helped build the Philippine’s military and security forces and offered financial assistance in exchange for greater American presence in the country.

    The US came under scrutiny in July after Human Rights Watch found that President Aquino’s regime was using torture methods, conducting extra-judicial killings and making “leftist activists, journalists and clergy” disappear. The US has given almost $700 million to this regime since President Barack Obama took office.

    But the US presence in the Philippines is so important to the Obama administration that the Philippines will likely receive even more financial assistance, alongside the increase in military assistance, according to AntiWar reporter John Glaser. The US will not, however, admit that its main intention is to maintain its hegemony in the region.

    The US announced that its military support would be of assistance to the Philippines after natural disasters, which occur often in the western Pacific country. Trying to address Chinese concerns, the US emphasized the humanitarian nature of its military presence, citing the recent Typhoon Bopha, which killed more than 900 Philippines last week.

    But the Chinese response has not been positive. After the announcement was made, Chinese media described the Philippines as troublemakers seeking conflict. Using offensive language, the state-run media sources denounced the US-Philippines agreement and referred to the Phillipines Foreign Minister Albert del Rosario as ‘pathetic’.

UN: Syria’s Rebels Come From 29 Countries!

  • UN: Syria’s Rebels Come From 29 Countries!
    by Jason Ditz, http://antiwar.com/ 
    Influx of Sunni Fighters Adds to Sectarian Tone of Civil War 
    Despite a narrative of Syria’s rebellion being an extension of pro-democracy protests in 2011, UN human rights investigators say that the rebel forces are increasingly made up of foreign fighters with a sectarian agenda.

    A report by the UN says that rebel fighters have come from 29 countries, and are overwhelmingly Sunnis flocking to the nation to fight against the Alawite President Bashar Assad.

    As the fighting gets more sectarian in nature, it has encouraged more religious fighters from abroad, and as those fighters arrive, they fuel the sectarian tensions all the more, a dangerous cycle that seems likely to just keep getting worse.

    The shift has been readily apparent to those watching, as the rebel leadership has gone from overwhelmingly military defectors to a collection of Islamist clerics and Muslim Brotherhood activists calling the shots in a matter of months, and groups with open endorsements from al-Qaeda like the al-Nusra Front taking center stage in major offensives.
  • The Masonic Origins of the Muslim Brotherhood (emphasis mine)
    The Masonic origins of the Islamists movements, and their true goal to undermine Islam and fight for Western Zionist Powers such as Britain and the United States of America. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs for the Illuminati. The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups, through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same Illuminati cause.

    When we explore the political and financial connections of the terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics, operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the British and American governments, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.

    William Engdahl on Egypt’s uprising:
    They are being organized in a Ukrainian-style high-tech electronic fashion with large internet-linked networks of youth tied to Mohammed ElBaradei and the banned and murky secret Muslim Brotherhood, whose links to British and American intelligence and freemasonry are widely reported.

    Muslim Brotherhood created by British Intelligence
    Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent…states in his report on Iran’s Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence”…and that their mission was to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted…”

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance. Without the British, “radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous.”

    The real Muslim Brothers are…the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy.

    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.

  • Pentagon Announces Troop Deployment in 35 African Nations

    Following a decision last week by the United Nations Security Council to send thousands of soldiers into Mali to combat “Islamist” and “Qaeda” extremists, the Pentagon has announced it will dispatch “small teams” to more than 35 African nations next year.

    “The teams will be limited to training and equipping efforts, and will not be permitted to conduct military operations without specific, additional approvals from the secretary of defense,” reports the Associated Press.

    The U.S. military presence in Vietnam began when the United States Military Assistance Advisory Group established a presence in Saigon to assist French legionnaires battling Viet Minh forces. Over the next decade, the Pentagon turned this modest advisory role into a full-blown war that claimed the lives of nearly 60,000 Americans and more than 3 million Southeast Asians.

    According to the political establishment in Washington and its military counterpart at the Pentagon, North Africa is threatened by al-Qaeda affiliated groups, particularly with the rise of Boko Haram in Nigeria. The West African nation is vitally important due to its vast oil reserves.

    The Pentagon insists the Salafist group Boko Haram is associated with Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). Boko Haram is widely condemned by numerous Muslim groups that say its campaign of terror and murder of Christians is contrary to the teaching of Islam.

    In addition to countries such as Libya, Sudan, Algeria and Niger where the U.S. says there is an al-Qaeda presence, the brigade assignment will assist Kenya and Uganda in fighting against al-Shabab militants. The group was formed in war-torn Somalia by Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, described as an ex-U.S. soldier who fought in Bosnia in the early 1990s. The CIA’s role in perpetuating war in the Balkans and funding the Bosnian Muslim mujahideen is well documented.

    Gen. David Rodriguez, the head of U.S. Army Forces Command, told the Associated Press that if the African nations involved in the operation want the Pentagon to participate in military operations against al-Qaeda, they will have to petition Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. “If they want them for (military) operations, the brigade is our first sourcing solution because they’re prepared,” Rodriguez said.

    The Pentagon currently has plans for over 100 military and training exercises across Africa as part of its touted Africom effort. The “carefully calibrated” plan to move into Africa was announced in 2007 despite “misgivings across the continent that it could spawn American bases or create the perception of an undue U.S. military influence there,” according to the AP.

    “AFRICOM’s goal is to eliminate China and other countries influence in the region,” writes Timothy Alexander Guzman. “Africa’s natural resources is another important element to consider because it includes oil, diamonds, copper, gold, iron, cobalt, uranium, bauxite, silver, petroleum, certain woods and tropical fruits.”

    The Tuareg Rebellion in Mali and the participation of Ansar Dine have provided the latest pretext for the United States and the United Nations to intervene in Africa. The Islamists group Ansar Dine aligned with AQIM and eventually displaced the Tuareg and imposed Sharia law in the northern part of Mali.

    Last week’s United Nations resolution states that “military intervention will not happen until Mali’s own dysfunctional army is adequately trained and a framework for political stability and elections is restored in the country,” according to the New York Times.

    Military intervention in Mali is being pushed by France, the former colonial occupier of the country, and the United Nations resolution calls for a 3,300-soldier force to be sent next year.

    For now, the United States and France will work on getting the Malian military, described as “vital to ensure Mali’s long-term security and stability,” adequately trained to fight al-Qaeda, the vexatious militant force that appears like clockwork in strategically important areas of the world prior to the involvement of the United States, its European partners, and the United Nations.
