Globalized Education and One World Government

Globalized Education and One World Government

By Hwaa Irfan

When we send our children to school, and have nothing more to do with the learning process, we are literally handing over our children. A growing gap occurs between the child and the family, and more so today than in the past, a growing gap that frequently cannot be bridged. We make assumptions about the whole process, but in general we allow ourselves to believe that it is either natural, and/or it is better for the child. There may be problems with the child’s learning process which we accept, but are mere labels slapped onto our children like Attention Deficit Disorder, which is in fact a product o the education system, and not arising naturally from the child. If we are faithful to our children, we might recognize that our children have qualities that need developing, and focus on that.  In general, we do not question the education system because we believe it can teach our children what we cannot, and in some cases it can, but in many cases, if we honest we will learn to regret it!

Most of these recent changes in the interaction between child and school have taken place because of a growing globalization of education, a system of education that has an agenda built into the curriculum. One can observe the effects more noticeably amongst developing countries that take on curriculum packages from the West, but the restlessness, the increased level of hyperactivity, and the increased disassociation from anything of intrinsic value, we put down to the new generation. It never once crosses our mind that the curriculum is the cause of what we have grown to accept, but contributes heavily to the lack of cohesion on a child level, familial, and societal level.

For example, the case of ‘free sex’, that has been sold lock stock and barrel through the sex education program of the U.N. While Muslims have borne the brunt of this challenge, many non-Muslim parents have felt the blow too, but meanwhile a momentum is put into motion once sex becomes a focal point, for once triggered, it controls you, taking your mind away from the concerns of global governance, while members of the global elite exploit sex through children, and make it publicly acceptable via the media. But not too many people want to know about the satanic rituals of global elite paedophiles, or the fact that the National Education Authority view sex education as a useful tool in changing the values of children, so let’s get back to ‘education’.

We have heard about Trans-Formation of America, using children for sex experiments to develop mind control techniques as a part of the U.S. military Mk-ULTRA program, in order to bring about the ‘transformation’ of American society as a cohesive, submissive population that serves the interests of the global elite/governance, enabling them to maintain complete control without challenge.

A few have heard about the transformation of global society through a globalized education system, and more have experienced what that actually means, but without recognizing what it actually means because they have become willing partners in the global game. Many have been active in spreading the truth, many of them awakened teachers, but their silenced voices we will not hear. Some may have understood the game because of the increasing constraints put on homeschooling in the U.S., or the slapping of RFID tags on children to make sure they attend school, or punishment by being banned from school for not taking a vaccine. But given the increasing divestment in public education, and yet we find the P.R. mantra education has the salvation in 2012 becoming louder and louder, especially for developing countries, should we not ask the question why!

When one mentions Rockefeller in relation to global governance, one’s eyebrows will raise with every new avenue one becomes familiar with. The avenue of a global education agenda is one that Rockefeller has played a strong roll in directing. Written by Professor John I. Goodlad, the Schooling for a Global Age, was funded by the Danforth and Rockefeller Foundations, and the U.S. Department of Education. The focus was and is to prepare each person for a “better world” using the same model, and the same psychological strategies. With this, they felt that the battle for global governance could be won!

In 1952, one man who was irked by the whole situation was Senator William Jenners, and goes down in the Congressional records as having said:

“This war against our Constitution … is being fought here… in our schools… colleges… churches… women’s clubs. It is being fought with our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought 24 hours a day…. while we remain asleep…. The UN is at work… every day and night, changing the teachers, changing the teaching materials, changing the very words and tones–changing all the essential ideas which we imagine our schools are teaching to our young folks.”

Enter 12 ‘leading’ educationalists in November 1985, in the Netherlands for an international-curriculum symposium. Education Week reported their call for a ‘world-core curriculum’ based on knowledge that will ensure ‘peaceful and cooperative existence among the human species on this planet’.”

What is wrong with that one might say, but given the fact that most wars, and most conflicts between factions are a part of covert and overt (psy-ops) operations by the same people who call for ‘peaceful and cooperative existence’ are not exactly asking for ‘peaceful and cooperative existence’ but ‘cooperation’ with their global agenda without resistance. One of the funding bodies for that symposium in the Netherlands was the National Education Association, the same NEA that controls the experimental wing of global governance population control agendas, America.

The NEA grew out of the Rockefeller and Carnegie General Education board, which in turn grew out of experimental locations such as Colombia, Stanford and Chicago universities, and these same foundations supplied 20% of the income of colleges and universities in the early 1900s using the theories of John Dewey. Unfortunately, this same Dewey philosophy (Marxist-education) is being introduced by Egypt’s elite in 2012, in the form of a pre-school franchise in New Cairo. But back to early 1900s U.S., traditional teachers against Deweyism were silenced by huge amounts of Rockefeller-Carnegie propaganda.

John Dewey believed individuality was sanity, and the global elite/governors believe socialism is the most efficient way to control the global population in their service. Dewey co-authored the first Human Manifesto in 1933 where he stated:

“…a synthesizing and dynamic force for today must be shaped for the needs of this age. To establish such a religion is a major necessity of the present.”

A global religion is to replace all religions, a religion that puts global governance in control of the people. So any real religion is a threat to their agenda, and the easiest way is to get them pitting against one another.

The same year of Dewey’s Human Manifesto, a NEA-sponsored world conference drafted a Constitution for a World Organization of the Teaching Profession.

It would be “a mighty force in aiding UNESCO,” said William Carr, associate secretary of NEA’s Education Policies Commission.

UNESCO grew out of the International Bureau of Education, founded and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. UNESCO’s International Baccalaureate helps to advance the global education agenda, being taught in 140 countries.

John Dewey was honorary president of the NEA in 1932, and eugenicist, Julian Huxley was the first Director-General of UNESCO; and as far back as 1976 the NEA deseminated to schools across the U.S. A Declaration of Interdependence: Education for a Global community. The recently (1993) formed Education International with Mary Hatwood Futrell as president, and former head of NEA.

From the point of view of the pupil, the first compulsory education law was passed in Massachusetts in 1852, but the first U.S. Department of Education did not come into existence until 1979, by which time, much of American mass schooling had been shaped. Buried in that history are the findings of the Reece Commission of the 1950s which found that:

The power of the individual large foundation is enormous. Its various forms of patronage carry with them elements of thought control. It exerts immense influence on educator, educational processes, and educational institutions. It is capable of invisible coercion. It can materially predetermine the development of social and political concepts, academic opinion, thought leadership, public opinion.

The power to influence national policy is amplified tremendously when foundations act in concert. There is such a concentration of foundation power in the United States, operating in education and the social sciences, with a gigantic aggregate of capital and income. This Interlock has some of the characteristics of an intellectual cartel. It operates in part through certain intermediary organizations supported by the foundations. It has ramifications in almost every phase of education.

It has come to exercise very extensive practical control over social science and education. A system has arisen which gives enormous power to a relatively small group of individuals, having at their virtual command huge sums in public trust funds.

The power of the large foundations and the Interlock has so influenced press, radio, television, and even government that it has become extremely difficult for objective criticism of anything the Interlock approves to get into news channels—without having first been ridiculed, slanted and discredited.

Research in the social sciences plays a key part in the evolution of our society. Such research is now almost wholly in the control of professional employees of the large foundations. Even the great sums allotted by federal government to social science research have come into the virtual control of this professional group.

Foundations have promoted a great excess of empirical research as contrasted with theoretical research, promoting an irresponsible “fact-finding mania” leading all too frequently to “scientism” or fake science.

Associated with the excessive support of empirical method, the concentration of foundation power has tended to promote “moral relativity” to the detriment of our basic moral, religious, and governmental principles. It has tended to promote the concept of “social engineering,” that foundation-approved “social scientists” alone are capable of guiding us into better ways of living, substituting synthetic principles for fundamental principles of action.

These foundations and their intermediaries engage extensively in political activity, not in the form of direct support of candidates or parties, but in the conscious promotion of carefully calculated political concepts.

The impact of foundation money upon education has been very heavy, tending to promote uniformity in approach and method, tending to induce the educator to become an agent for social change and a propagandist for the development of our society in the direction of some form of collectivism. In the international field, foundations and the Interlock, together with certain intermediary organizations, have exercised a strong effect upon foreign policy and upon public education in things international. This has been accomplished by vast propaganda, by supplying executives and advisors to government, and by controlling research through the power of the purse. The net result has been to promote “internationalism” in a particular sense—a form directed toward “world government” and a derogation of American nationalism.

While the EU was centralizing and standardizing Europe’s educations system, with compulsory sex education at the forefront, former U.S. president G.W. Bush in January 2002 signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Justified reactions to the Act which included:

  • Forcing teachers to conform to federally mandated curricula to inflicting monetary punishments on school districts that do not live up to federal expectation
  • Threatening state control or turning them over to private management companies – the same threats recently (2012) in the U.K. made at schools with low pass GCSE grades after fixing the grades.
  • Standardized testing
  • Schools to give military recruiters the name, home phone number, and address of every enrolled student.
  • Usurps state authority

By 2007 30,000 people signed a petition at educatorroundtable.org calling the law ‘too destructive to salvage.’ ”

“I don’t want a nation of thinkers. I want a nation of workers.” J.D. Rockefeller

From John Dewey to Robert Muller

Executive director of NEA, a main speaker at the symposium in the Netherlands was kind enough to update us in Education Week:

“Cawelti’s world-core curriculum would be based… on proposals put forth by Robert Muller, assistant secretary-general of the United Nations, in his recent book New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality.”

Robert Muller was the Assistant Secretary-General of the UN, and founded and developed the UN University of Peace in Costa Rica, which is sponsored by the UN, as a model for 21st century education. Muller won the 1989 UNESCO Prize for Peace Education, and in his acceptance speech he said:

“I pray that all human beings of this Earth become instruments of peace, thus fulfilling the cosmic function deeply engraved in each of us and for which we were born and allowed to live temporarily on this beautiful planet in the vast universe and eternal stream of time. The peace of the world is the sum-total of the peace of all individuals.”

Sounds wonderful doesn’t it! In fact it is just what we need, but, the Robert Muller School is based on the teachings of Alice A. Bailey, a leading disciple of a leading disciple of the Russian theosophist Madame Helena Blavatsky, formed the Lucifer Trust (now known as Lucis Trust) in 1920. Terry Melanson was able to confirm membership of Lucifer/Lucis Trust through involvement with the Windsor International Bank and Trust Company as follows:

  • International Fund For Development
  • The Hall Family Foundation
  • The Rockefeller Foundation
  • WHO/Habitat For Humanity
  • The Lucis Trust (NGO); United Nations
  • National Resources Defense Council
  • Capital Missions Company
  • Investors Circle
  • The Coca-Cola Foundation
  • Fellowship For International Education
  • International Monetary Agency
  • International Center For Educational Advancement
  • Christian Children’s Fund (Worldwide)
  • BAMPAC (Black America’s Political Action)
  • Fellowship For Reconciliation
  • National Institute For the Advancement Of Science
  • International Association For Environmental Cooperation
  • World Wildlife Federation
  • Council On Foreign Relations (CFR)
  • CARICOM
  • NAFTA
  • MERCOSOR
  • Council Of Emerging Nations
  • Freedom Communications, Inc.
  • The European Institute (Foreign Affairs Magazine)
  • United Nations Association of The USA
  • The NAACP (National Association of Colored People)
  • The Royal Heritage Charitable Relief Fund

 

When we hear/read the word cosmos, light, or bringer of Light, we have a religious/spiritual understanding in mind, but what has to be understood that to a Satanist, ‘Lucifer’ means “the one who brings light/light bearer.” With followers all over the world, the Lucifer/Lucis Trust’s aim is to establish a New World Order. Lucifer/Lucis Trust has headquarters in Britain, Germany, Holland, U.S., and Switzerland.  Lucifer/Lucis Trust maintains the UN meditation room. They have infiltrated the New Age movement, and in some cases hold lead positions in awareness and belief in the Shift of the Ages, and the universal changes that will undermine the global power elite. The UN’s Global Education Project aims to circumvent the Shift of the Ages by building in all the religious/spiritual elements of societies, but to serve a lesser god!

Berit Kjos, shares one of his experiences with the first Robert Muller School alternatively known as “Schools of the Ageless Wisdom” in Brave New Schools.

During a visit to Arlington, Texas, some years ago, a friend took me to see the original Robert Muller school.  While she waited in the car, I walked past a little Buddha, climbed the steps to the front door, and rang the bell. Gloria Crook, the Director opened the door and asked why I had come. I listed my credentials: I was interested in global education, was concerned about the environment, and was an immigrant from Norway — a country well known for its global concerns and admiration for the United Nations,

I must have passed the test, because she invited me in and led me into a massive hallway. Looking to the left, I saw a room full of young mothers and pregnant women in yoga position. On a table next to the doorway, I noticed a stack of papers. The title startled me: “Occult Meditation.”

Berit was then asked if he was familiar with Alice Bailey. Berit then asked:

“Didn’t she write books full of messages she received from the Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul?”

Ms Crook replied in the affirmative.

. “Here, sit down and look at some of them.” She pulled down several of Bailey’s books from a shelf and put them in my lap. I silently thanked God for His spiritual protection as I flipped through the pages of the first one, Education in the New Age.

Then she handed me the Robert Muller World Core Curriculum Manual.   I turned a few pages and read,

“The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teaching set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul ….”

The manual contained a certificate for participating institution in the UNESCO Associated Schools Project in Education for International Co-operation and Peace.”  And the other was accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Finally Ms Crook pulled two large golden frames from the wall and showed them to me. I shivered when I looked at the first. It pictured a beautiful calligraphied rendition of “The Great Invocation,” an occult prayer used around the world to invoke a global outpouring of spiritual light and power.

The other frame displayed a letter from the White House. President Bush had sent his greetings and appreciation for the contributions made by the school.

By the 1990s Muller’s World Core Curriculum Manual began to permeate U.S. school districts, as exampled by the K-5 curriculum of Eugene, Oregon where it stated on page 11:

“The three curriculum strands are adapted from the World Core Curriculum by Robert Muller….”

The three curriculum strands are:

  • “Oneness with the planet,”
  • “Unity with people,”
  • “Harmony with self.”

Sounds great! But remember that the key elements from all religions are being incorporated, and manipulated towards subservience to a lesser god, One global government, and that includes Satanism which is considered as a religion! It s done in a manner to appeal to the people, and therefore make them willing subjects! The end game is to:

  • Trade facts for imagination causing children to not think creatively or for themselves, which as adults makes them unable to form their own solutions and thus dependent on The Government – sounds familiar
  • Teaching occult formulas for empowerment to help students feel good about themselves and school–at least for a while
  • Daily lessons in group conformity to quench individual choices  – group identity has become the predominant factor is social relations at school, hence the increasing bullying, intimidation and violence one can find in U.S. schools, and spreading elsewhere.
  • Using cooperative learning so that all will progress to the same mediocre level.  – this is happening too!

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents … to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” – David Rockefeller

In One Economy, One Government, Your World! the scenarios outlined in the UN document echo the UN’s 56th Annual DPI/NGO Conference of September 2003, the year that Iraq fell under U.S. occupation. The focus was education where Muller’s curricular philosophy was echoed:

“…developed a core curriculum to teach the whole child.”

“…included hygiene, gardening,  vocational training,  marketing, entrepreneurship, as well as values and respect.”

This is the planned global education agenda for those who have been out-priced of education, which means that the masses will be schooled to a certain level of attainment. The core of Muller’s World Core Curriculum is repeated in the UNs Global Education Project, provided and facilitated by the UN’s University of Peace (of which Muller is the Chancellor) is stated in Mullers World Core Curriculum Manual, and repeated in Social Science and Science curricular packages taken on by developing countries including Arab Spring countries as:

  • … promote growth of the group idea, so that group good, group understanding, group interrelations and group goodwill replace all limited, self-centered objectives leading to ‘group consciousness’
  • Providing experiences which give the child new values … (remember NEA views sex education as a tool to change values)
  • To aid the child in developing and maintaining a balance between his spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and academic development, (the question is balance in favour who/what)

Traditional teaching whereby the teacher is the center of information which the child digests is out, GREAT, and instead the teacher will act as facilitator. This insight into child cantered learning has been established by such methods as Waldorf, and Montessori, and are much more effective than traditional teaching, but if the learning environment is distorted what are the children learning?

“Curriculum will focus on essential questions that have the power to incite students’ and teachers’ imaginations and that flow from universal questions, such as ‘Where did I come from?’ or ‘Why does the world look and behave as it does?'”

If the source of their investigation is manipulated, once again what are they learning? Rather than integrate religious/spiritual practices, it is throwing the veil of doubt – i.e. anti-creationism. If the answer to the question ‘Where did I come from?’ is based upon what information they have access to, like the Tooth Fairy, the answer can quite easily stop at mum and dad! In the context of instilling believe in man as divine, then implies that divinity begins and ends with man! This limitation set on our understanding is reinforced by Muller’s belief that the Hindu’s got it right, Earth is God, which is appealing to the environmentalist, and will keep them happy!

Exploiting the Whole Child

The concept of teaching the whole child, arose out of alternative education practices that recognize that education as we have known it only addresses a part of the child, hence leading to imbalanced development. As the U.N’s Global Education Project is engineered by Muller essentially, although there are others involved, we must look to Muller’s source, Alice Bailey. This can be found in her book Education in the New Age:

“The time is coming when all children will be studied in the following directions: (1) Astrologically;  (2) Psychologically, supplementing the best of modern psychology with a knowledge of the Seven Ray types, which colours Eastern psychology;  (3) Medically;  (4) Vocationally;  (5) Spiritually. By this I mean that the apparent age of the soul [i.e. reincarnation] under consideration will be studied, and the place on the ladder of evolution will be approximately noted; mystical … tendencies will be considered and their apparent lack noted. … ONE OF THE MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF THOSE WHO TRAIN THE INFANT MINDS of the race will be to determine, as early as possible in life, which of the seven determining energies are controlling in each case … A child’s note and quality will be early determined, and his whole planned training will grow out of this basic recognition” .

This actually puts asunder the gift of choice that religiously and spiritually speaking, all of us have been bequeathed with, but most of us do not use. At anytime along one’s journey in life, one can have a life changing experience, that raises one’s potential from the ground one stands on. We are talking about being judged by a group of people who scientifically speaking only recognize 6% of DNA, and regard the other 94% as junk because they do not know what that 94% does! In essence, they will determine each person’s present and future place on this earth through mind control!

Peace and cooperation is the goal, so we are informed, but the reality seems quite different! Globalist, and member of the Committee of 300, Bill Clinton’s charm only serves well when it comes to P.R. As Governor of Arkansas, Clinton implemented the ‘global education in a summer school for gifted high-schoolers.  For 6 whole weeks, without contact with the outside world and parents, 17 year olds were introduced to a technique called ‘divorcing yourself from your body’ or in Mk-Ultra terms inflicting Dissociative (Personality Disorder) through multiple trauma (sex) on children, to trigger connection to the realms of the Unseen.  In case the connection is lost, the aim of ‘divorcing yourself from your body’ at the summer school is to make contact with a ‘higher guide’.  To say the least there was a negative response by the participants, including a suicide and one student who said the course taught them to love death! The other aim, hence the purpose of a standardized sex education curriculum is to feel no allegiance at all to one’s family, and hence others. This lack of allegiance leaves one prone and participant to all kinds of influences, as witnessed by wealthy parents who have little involvement in the lives of their children. This is exampled again by the student led massacres of the Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, a school which is a part of the program known as Outcome Based Education.  To make sure home-schoolers do not escape, the Department of Education demands that home-schoolers are tested for OBE-based exams, and the NEA wants home-schoolers to be taught the curriculum provided by the Department of Education. Those who fail will be regarded as truants, and liable to state intervention in the form of welfare. Yet, OBE is fast gaining a reputation for high illiteracy rates, and poor scholastic skills!

All of this through the teachings of a questionable ascended master not of this world, Djwhal Khul, who passed on his teachings through theosophists, Blavatsky and her disciple, Bailey, and her disciple Muller – for the global education agenda that we are all minus the global elite and their protégés a part of!

For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light,” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of automaton (Adam) created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was first to whisper, “In the day yea eat there of, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” — can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour. An “adversary” to Jehovah … he still remains in esoteric truth the ever loving “Messenger”… who conferred on us spiritual instead of physical immortality …

Satan, or Lucifer, represents the active … “Centrifugal Energy of the Universe” in a cosmic sense … Fitly is he … and his adherents … consigned to the “sea of fire,” because it is the Sun … the fount of life in our system, where they are petrified … and churned up to re-arrange them for another life; that Sun which, as the origin of the active principle of our Earth, is at once the Home and the Source of the Mundane Satan …  Helena Blavatsky – The Secret Doctrine, Volume I

They have permeated the New Age with beliefs through offsprings of the Lucifer/Lucis Trust like the World Goodwill a UN accredited NGO that is a member of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) which formulated the Earth Charter. WG are moon worshipers as indicated by their PR material:

“During both the full moon and new moon periods there is there is a similar emphasis on the work of energy distribution in meditation …. we consciously align with the rhythmic pattern of energy flow each month, we become a part of a planetary meditative process carried forward at all levels of consciousness and with great creative potential for anchoring the seeds of the coming the coming civilization and the germ of the new culture.”

They have abused the knowledge that has been denied the masses that we are in fact One entity and exploit our different expressions (socially, culturally, spiritually, and ethnically) to date because it served their purpose to pit one group against the other. Now that it no longer serves their purpose, and while we remain entrenched in our bigotries and biases, they have been calling on us to live in peace and cooperation, not for our own benefit or conscious choice (which is God’s Will), but because as long as they can exploit and manipulate the incoming universal current from Above by means of the concept of the “herd” (e.g. vaccinations,  adulterate foods and water, education) they can call the herd to serve their New World Order, but the same old game, but nastier!

Europe’s Population ‘Management’ Agenda in Yemen.

Phtoto by Catalina Martin-Chico

In The Spermicide in Your Food!? I toyed with the notion that recent developments: amassing military control via Libya, and other African countries forming a belt from east to west in the name of Al-Qaeda, a S.A.R.S. like virus in Saudi Arabia (that might be bioengineered for Arabs) and geoengineering that some scientists believe would affect Middle East, and North Africa were pincer movements towards population reduction – sounds far fetched doesn’t it, but add to it, Germany’s contribution to population control for Yemen, and what does one  have!

If one was wondering which of the many places one’s nations budget was being employed not to one’s benefit, then look to the global agenda’s population control of developing nations – the countries that use the least of the world’s resources, but supply the world with the most natural resources, which can be encapsulated by the former advisor to Jimmy Carter, and advisor to President Obama, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

“In earlier times it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today it is infinitely easier to kill a million people then to control a million people.

A member of the global governing Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission, and Council for Foreign Relations, the organization that directs global goverment policies like Brzezinski’s notion of genocide has been practiced in many forms since WWII.  What has become lifestyle norms for, many global birth control programs are administered through global institutions like the World Health Organization and the World Bank to reduce targeted populations to help maintain control of a country or region.

A new fund has been undertaken by the UN’s Population Fund (UNFPA) and the German Development Bank (KfW) to make sure population control is applied in U.S-controled Yemen whwere the Arab Spring has had little mainstream media attention.

To this end, €8 million has been given from the director of the German Bank Bernd Schönewald.  In 2010, the German Development Bank put €4.5 million Euros to sell population reduction through TV adds and other dissemination outlets.

Since 2005 KfW Entwicklungsbank has been cooperating closely with the Yemen Ministry of Public Health, hwoever the focus is not health, but says KfW health expert Bettina Zoch:

“We are focusing on the topic of health and the risks that too many births pose for mothers and children, and on the topic that having too many children brings poverty.”

A curious preoccupation to have in the midst of debt crisis that still threatens to prevent a one government Europe, but not so curious when one considers that it is a part of the One Government, One Planet plan to erode the barriers of sovereignties, and reduce targeted populations in certain developing countries.  Even more curious since the dust has not settled yet in Yemen from the time their Arab Spring began in January 2011, one month before Egypt! Yemeni women have been very active since, in the protests as organizers and leaders.

“Women are no longer victims, they have become leaders, they are at the forefront of the demonstrations… The participation of young people, men and women, without any ideological or political background, has made this movement explode”. Tawakkul Karman (Yemeni), activist, journalist, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

But since the inauguration of a national transitional unity government in December 2011, fighting continues as it did before the Arab Spring, with a massive upshot in attacks on U.S. installations, with U.S. presence in Yemen. There have been 27 US military and CIA strikes involving cruise missiles, aircraft, drones or naval bombardments which have led to the attacks in US installations,  and American presence seems to have ignored that there is a national transitional unity government with the Pentagon’s elite Joint Special Operations Command, JSOC very present and active as on December 17, 2009 when they launched at least one cruise missile loaded with cluster bombs In South Yemen killing 14 alleged militants and 44 civilians. Those civilians included massacre of 8 families, five pregnant women and 22 children, the youngest just a year old.

What Yemen is in global elite terms is the 32nd biggest oil exporter and 16th largest seller of natural gas, a money spinning natural resource that has been undermined by the ongoing fighting. When Yemen first agreed to population controling its nation, it was under pro-U.S. now deposed President Saleh, but the U.S. has little credibility in the current Yemen, at least so it seems.

The mistake that many Muslim liberalists make in their bid for freedom from dictatorship, is that liberty equals the right to choose when the choice given as in the West is actually a global governance deal to reduce population because they see growing populations in developing countries as:

a)      Strategic threat politically

b)      Less able to control

c)      Using resources that they want for their continued wealth and power

These reasons are not present in the marketing campaign by Koch, to cn.onvinceYemeni’s to have less children – a campaign that has used and will use popular actors to get the message across.

“… developed a contraceptive product line of its own under the brand name Protec. The Protec products are being sold by pharmacies and other private sales outlets and are very affordable, putting family planning within reach of many poor people for the first time. The success is reflected by very high sales figures. From 2007 up to early 2010, 5.5 million Protec condoms, one million monthly cycles of oral contraceptives and 348,000 units of three-month injectables were sold, and 85,000 IUDs were inserted in Yemen.” From the 2010 press release:

“These very good figures are an achievement of the broad education campaigns. The spots are broadcast not only on television and in cinemas. Rural villages hold public assemblies where the educational and health films are shown to hundreds and thousands of women. Theater shows are now being performed in schools to reach adolescents, many of whom have not had any sex education. Hairdressers are being advised on how to approach the topic of contraception and HIV in casual conversation with their customers. In mass weddings with up to 200 couples, the Foundation distributes surprise bags with educational material. Village fairs now include quiz shows with educational questions that are particularly popular because of the attractive prizes.”

The German campaign was successful then, and now they have a chance to do it all over again, with the real intent  expressed by German Development Bank Deputy Head of Mission at the German Embassy Philip Holzapfel

“since resources are limited and if no curve in population growth is registered, it will be difficult for Yemen to extricate itself from a state of humanitarian crisis.”

Come on… are we supposed to believe a country that does not like Arabs (the experience of visiting Egyptians) are that concerned about how Yemen manages its resources for its population!

“As Chancellor Angela Merkel said when president Hadi visited Berlin,

‘One only needs to have a look at the map to understand how important Yemen is.’”

Birth Controling a Nation

Oh Bashir, the Sudanese Stand Up to Be Counted*

Oh Bashir, the Sudanese Stand Up to Be Counted*

 

By Sokari Ekine

The renewed Sudan uprising whose genesis can be traced back to December 2010 is now nearly two weeks old. The latest protests began when a small group of women students from the University of Khartoum held a demonstration in response to increases in transport and food prices.

Women of Sudan have been involved in previous protests such as those which took place in September 2010 and March 2011. In both cases women were protesting against violence against women.

The protests have now moved to include other universities and the general public calling for regime change in Sudan. The protests come at a time of economic crisis for Sudan. Years of fighting wars in western and southern regions- Darfur, Southern Kordofan and the Blue Nile. In the east, a 2006 peace deal signed with the Eastern Front remains precarious and the dispute with South Sudan over oil, pipelines and land remain. The picture is a beleaguered Khartoum government which in addition to wars and insurgency on it’s borders is now having to fight an internal uprising with it’s own people.

The government has predictably responded with tear gas, beatings and arrests and has particularly targeted bloggers and foreign journalists. Usamah Mohammed, Karima Fath Al-Rahman, and a prominent activist Magdi Akasha of the youth movement, have all been arrested.

Egyptian correspondent for the Bloomberg News, Salma Elwardany was detained for five hours and later deported. Maha El-Sanosi was taken from her house in the middle of the night together with her phone and laptop. She was later released but has to report to the NISS. Mohamed Hassan Alim was also taken from his house and remains in custody.

As to why the protests are taking place at this time, Sudanese Thinker and blogger, Amir Ahmad Nasr writes:

“As the fear barrier crumbles, Sudanese have a chance to topple Bashir and his National Congress Party (NCP) cronies — and to build a better future for their country. It is important to understand why Sudanese would risk their lives to oppose Bashir. The narratives peddled by some commentators about the country’s recent conflicts — that they are between “Arabs versus Africans,” or “Muslims versus Christians” — are not only unhelpful, they are wrong. These characterizations have neither benefited the international community nor the diverse citizens of Sudan — including the Arabs and Afro-Arabs of the North who felt alienated by it, and who have also been violently oppressed for decades.”

Nasar, like other many other Sudanese bloggers and tweeters, insists the present protests are different from those in the past as they include the wider population and are taking place beyond the capital, Khartoum. Moze Ali points out that the protests are different because now people are calling for regime change rather than just opposition to the government’s austerity measures.
“The common misconception is that the protests are against the austerity plan, they’re not. The protesters are calling for the fall of the regime. They might have been sparked by the austerity plan, but they have been ongoing for 10 days now and it doesn’t seem that they will stop any time soon. The students, and citizens who eventually joined, want regime change for very simple and understandable reasons. The education and health systems in Sudan are virtually nonexistent. There’s no infrastructure, no legal system, no economic plan of any sort, and last but not least, no freedom of expression. For all intents and purposes, Sudan is a failed state; statistically, socially, economically, financially, and any everything else.”

Yousif Elmahdi is defiant as the protests slow down:

“So things have calmed down recently, so what? This only ends when we say it does, and that’s with the regime gone. Nothing less…”

Referring to the planned mass protests on 30 June he writes that this needs to be huge and there is no turning back now. In an earlier piece he addresses the question: “Sudan, Are We a Failed Nation?” The short answer is yes…

“Sudan is a failed state. Its social, political, and economic shortcomings render it third on Foreign Policy’s index. Basic freedoms are minimal; women are oppressed and activists, journalists and politicians arrested under a complicit rule of law. Poverty, estimated at 46.5% overall and 57.6% in rural areas, grows more acute. Sudan’s Human Development Index is lowest of all MENA countries – 169 of 187 overall. With conflicts in every corner of the country, the South may not be the last to secede. Corruption is so pervasive (sixth worst Corruption Perception Index) that Sudan would be a middle-income country had it implemented an amnesty similar to that announced in South Sudan. Instead, we remain stratified in the event horizon of an economic meltdown.”

He comments on the failures of previous uprisings which he attributes to a “helplessness” and a “fear induced passiveness often confused with apathy”.

In this situation, the Sudanese like people in other parts of the continent for example Nigeria, achieving change is too daunting and so we settle for less. Stumbling and mumbling along with the status quo until a time comes when this is no longer possible. Every time there is an uprising whether it’s Sudan, Nigeria or Cameroon people become less fearful and more determined and are able to sustain opposition for longer periods of time. This may not be THE uprising that will remove Omar Bashir but it is one on a continuum, a defining moment in the struggle that will eventually see him go the way of his neighbours to the north.

Syria and the New American Century

 

By Hwaa Irfan

As pressure builds within many of our lives for survival, especially those who live in the West, and countries that have subjected themselves to the Washington Consensus, what goes on elsewhere fades into the background. We may even allow ourselves to believe the stream of lies, and deception of governments who are set on the path of power regardless of how many of lives of citizens  are devastated in the process. Caught up in the wild tornadoes that purport a global economic collapse, when billions seem to come to the surface to facilitate the agendas of the global elite.

The Geopolitics that Includes You and I

Yet it the world’s response to Syria matters to us all mo matter what we think, becuase if we close our eyes it will not just go away. It matters for one simple reason, and that reason was recently best expressed by Iraq’s Prime Minister, Nuri al-Maliki.  After all it is inevitable that some level of wisdom should emanate from a country that has been heavily destroyed in the process of occupation by the U.S.

Quite simply:

“We are against the interference of some countries in Syria’s internal affairs, and those countries that are interfering in Syria’s internal affairs will interfere in the internal affairs of any country,” the al-Maliki said.

And that is the bottom line that Arab countries seem to be seriously remiss of.

The more we allow for the imperialist powers to get what they want the more they will want, until that demand comes from you no matter where you live, and how.

That demand has already been made, by withdrawing all resources that facilitate amenities, services, education, and health for as domestic budgets drop, more money seems to be pumped into monopolizing the world’s resources for the benefit of the global elite.

“They should be more concerned about their own political issues and human rights issues and demands of their own population for democratic reforms than to judge others,” Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani

But instead ‘Arab Spring’ countries  (and I use that term gingerly) feel that they can maintain there spheres of power and soveriegnty by submitting to the Washington Concensus at the cost of the needs of their population.

What kind of thinking lies behind the Persian Gulf countries who have recently decided to pay a monthly stipend of millions of dollars to support the rebels of Syria? Have they forgotten Libya? Do they believe that this stipend will make them favorable in the eyes of a power that functions only in it’s own interest, an interest that does not include its own people?  As America surpasses its 41 million living in poverty, it makes a U.S$12.2mn for humanitarian aid to Syria, bringing the U.S. total th civil unrest to U.S$25mn. March 2012 statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau states that the rate of poverty is approaching 50% since the global economic crisis with statistics from the National Poverty Center demonstrating that an increasing number of households are living on just only U.S$2 a day before benefits i.e. from 636,000 (1996) to 1.46 million (2011). A country that looks on its people as affordable waste, can easily exploit relations with another country and not in the service of the 1.46 million living in extreme poverty within its own borders.

Like attracts like, and maybe this more than anything else is the how and why an Arab state can support the suppression/intervention of its neighbor as the U.S. outsources its wars as in the case of the Horn of Africa, but as the genuine uprisings in the region have warned these powers, enough is enough. This if any is the only reason why those few Arab countries have voted into power governance by Islamists, a term that reflects less their religion and more the type of politics that supports the Washington Consensus. They were misguidely voted in to protect the soveriegnty, but as voting citizens are beginning to witness, no regime change has really taken place. What these Arab countries are effectively doing is paying for the wars of the imperialists by support rebels not revolutionaries, who do not have mass support in their own countries.

So intent on invading Syria that Hilary Clinton has been pushing the Syrian National Congress, SNC to come up with a plan for the transitionary period, in an attempt to void the mass resistance taking place against the Libyan transitionary government, the rebels. SNC consists of Syrian exiles and Westerners and has no support inside Syria. One of the members of SNC is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Executive Council, and the Muslims Brotherhood across Arab countries is becoming a reliable factor in the implementation of Washington strategy.

The push to take control in the interest of Western imperialism continues despite the fact that President Bashar Al-Assad has suspended Emergency Laws, which are still in place in Egypt, and has brought forward the elections, but these developments do not hit the headlines just as the human rights abuses by Syrian rebels as revealed by Human Rights Watch do not hit the headlines in the New American Century’s battle for the New Middle East in obeyance to Western imperialism along with its natural resources or oil.

They care little for the liberty of the people of the Middle East, and care much that the spirit of the Arab Spring will spread like wildfire with the help of Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the U.A.E. The more we accept, the worse it will get regardless of where we live in the world or migrate to. As the West steps up policing everything about everybody the slightest piece of misinformation can end us up on the wrong side of the law let alone to question it.

”What is going on in the street has three components the first one people who have needs and they want the state to fulfill them, the second component is represented through the outlaws and the wanted due to different criminal cases and they found that state institutions are a target for them because these institutions stand in the face of their interests and because they were dismissed from them so chaos for them a golden chance that they should seize to remain free and boost their illegal acts,” – Bashar Al-Assad at the Damascus University Speech, 2011.

From the Jasmine to the Lotus: Getting the Constitution Right

From the Jasmine to the Lotus:  Getting the Constitution Right

 

By Hwaa Irfan

Having faith in the wealth of what one has is something that many of us have to awaken to whether it be on a personal or social level. When Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution seemed to pass through its period of unrest to vote in a new government on December 23 2011, a number of the Egyptian youth revolutionaries looked on with envy – they had made it, so it was believed. However, just as protests erupt on the streets of Cairo again amidst the air of “I told you so” as a growing number of people realize that they were too ready to handover governance of their country through a questionable though peaceful electoral process to SCAF and the National Justice and Freedom Party (Muslim Brotherhood). Simply, in the struggle for a people’s democracy the people have been left out of the picture. All the signs were evident throughout, but far too many were far too willing to settle for less.

One of the arguments proffered by the Egyptian middle classes for the polarization in the voting in of the People’s Assembly, was the high level of illiteracy amongst Egyptians. Equated with the idea of being illiterate thus ignorant, nothing could be far from the case when it comes to the natural intelligence of the Egyptian common man, woman and child. In fact, one would even dare to say that the electoral procedure was “designed” to reduce full participation by the diversity of people that represents Egypt. Thus a number of the influential Egyptian middle classes rested on the argument that the Tunisian population is more educated, which in worldly terms they are.

Yet, we find that the Jasmine Revolution and the Lotus Revolution as triggers of the Arab Spring are now on par.

Without a doubt, the Constitution should come first not the president, because it is the basis of any governing body. It is what defines the policies that will arise, and the best suited officials to carry them out. But as Egypt approaches the June presidential elections, when SCAF have been made to commit to handing over governance of the country with the new president, an interesting series of scenarios are on the horizon, as to whether the arguments around who should draw up the constitution remains quite clearly unsettled.

Even though the Tunisian youth had been far more proactive, more engaged with their people, and thus had greater consensus among their people as of 2012, the obstacles are the same when it comes to the Constitution. Ignoring how the U.S. government has managed to invalidate their constitution, now activists, political entities, and human rights groups in Tunisia find themselves battling for the Tunisia’s National Constituent Assembly to hear, and act on their demands. After 23 years of suffering under the thumbs of former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who suppressed all things Tunisian, and supported all things in the Western interest, the overseers of the revolution continue to demand for human rights to be enshrined in the Constitution, and to avoid vague terms like “must exercise the rights as required by law” – clearly open to abuse.

Echoing the Tunisian concern that the Constitution must represent all for generations to come, conscientious Egyptians must realize that they along with the Tunisians are unique in modern day terms in the fight for a real people’s democracy, and that they pave the way to success or failure on that journey. Their faiths will stand tested and to honor those faiths or just the right to live with respect and dignity means honouring the rights of all. If SCAF and the Muslim Brotherhood want to be remembered with that honor and respect, they must play their role in that liberating experience, not suppress it, block it or be overcome by their desire for power, the kind of power that has not only led to the Arab Spring, but the kind of power that has led to the global economic crisis sacrificing the many for the few. To be despised and feared is the only legacy to their memory if power hungry leaders continue as they are continuously looking over their shoulders, and living a life whereby no one can be trusted!

Where is the humanity or compassion when the Egyptian military courts like the British courts investigate and try children like the case of 13-year-old Ahmed Hamdy Abdel Aziz, leaving them without legal and parental access? If a child is involved in a riot (in this case the Port Said football riot) that is only a reflection on the society that has raised him if indeed Ahmed carried out a crime.  If anything, Ahmed could be made to join one of the many helpful, but under-resourced Egyptian NGO programs that work with families, and the money spent on the trial could by directed to them. Once working with a number of these children, the NGO concerned could then present the type of comprehensive report that should be made to affect policy of social issues.

When a 25 year old Egyptian artist creates a painting that depicts that they as a people are being played with, that is a sad indictment on Egyptian governance. That artist is not politically inclined whatsoever, but she has been made so by what she sees from those who deem themselves as her betters. Maybe if it was not for their actions, this young female artist would have continued with the typical self interested life of the stereotypical adolescent, hence the nations “leaders” may have done her a favour, and woke her up to a greater reality. Multiply this by how many, then one has a force to be reckoned with! Maybe that is the function they serve, but they also have the God-given gift of choice.

Militarization of the Middle East: Arms Shipments Continue Despite Abuses*

By Pratap Chatterjee

Combined Systems tear gas canisters were retrieved by protestors from Tahrir Square.

A mysterious ship laden with weapons is expected to dock in Port Said, Egypt, this week [March 21st].

The MV Schippersgracht left Southport in North Carolina, the Pentagon’s largest ammunition port, on March 3, 2012. The ship is on contract to the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command, which refuses to explain what weapons are on board or what the ultimate destination of the weapons are, claiming security concerns.

Data on the MV Schippersgracht shipment came from an investigative collaboration between Amnesty International, Transarms and the International Peace and Information Service (IPIS).

Brian Wood, Amnesty International’s head of arms control, raised the alarm: “This ship of shame should not be allowed to unload its dangerous cargo in Egypt, and there is a substantial risk that this is what it plans to do,” he said in an Amnesty press release.

There is good reason to worry – the U.S. is one of the major sources of weapons that both the current and the previous regimes in Cairo have used against their citizens.

For example, a shipment for the Egyptian Ministry of Interior arrived from the US on November 26, 2011, carrying at least seven tons of “ammunition smoke” – which includes chemical irritants and riot control agents such as tear gas – from Combined Systems, Inc. of Jamestown, Pennsylvania. A U.S. State department spokesperson later confirmed that they had approved licenses for the export of such devices to Egypt.

That very month, more than two dozen people were killed and hundreds injured during protests against the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). Protestors picked up spent cartridges in Tahrir Square marked with the logo of Combined Systems Inc.

Nor was that the first time that Combined Systems Inc. weaponry has been used against protestors. In late January 2011, during the first protests of the Arab Spring, protestors collected similar tear gas canisters stamped with the logo of Combined Systems Inc.

“These licences were authorized during a period where the Egyptian government responded to protests by using excessive and often lethal force. It is inconceivable that the US authorities did not know of evidence of widely documented abuses by the Egyptian security forces. These licences should not have been granted,” says Wood.

The U.S. accounts for 30 percent of global arms sales, according to a new report out from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). Russia is close behind at 24 percent, according to the annual publication. (The report does not track China, which is believed to be a close contender for first or second place.)

Among the details in SIPRI’s new report – Syria, which has embarked on a major crackdown on democracy activists and dissidents in the last 12 months – has increased its arms purchases by 580 percent since 2002, mostly from Russia.

European countries are just as deeply involved in militarizing the Middle East. Der Spiegel has obtained a report from the European Commission that shows that combined exports from European Union member states a delivered at least €3.3 billion ($4.34 billion) worth of military equipment and licenses to Saudi Arabia in 2010. While Saudi has not seen the mass crackdowns that Syria is experiencing, it has supplied weapons to neighboring Bahrain which has violently suppressed protests. http://www.bahrainrights.org/en

This coming July, government negotiators from around the world are expected to convene in New York, to discuss how to address this burgeoning traffic in small arms with a new global treaty. Not surprisingly, countries like the U.S. and Russia are reluctant to commit to any binding agreements. We’ll keep you posted on the arms companies and governments that attempt to water down this important new legislation.

What Next World Bank!

By Hwaa Irfan

Breaking headlines Robert Zoellick’s announcement that he would be stepping down as 11th president of the World Bank is more to do with the Establishment fears over the world economy, fears that probably lie behind Zoellick’s decision to leave with a ‘good track record.’  As a neoconservative, a globalist,  and a former high level official of the Bush Administration Zoellick commented:

“The bank is now strong, healthy and well positioned for new challenges, and so it is a natural time for me to move on and support new leadership.”

Nominated for the position by former U.S. president G. W Bush, and supported by Germany, Zoellick whose family is of German origin took up his position in 2007. Not an enviable position to head the World Bank, though Hilary Clinton has had an eye on the position for some time, Zoellick was from The Establishment, acted on behalf of The Establishment,  and got full support from The Establishment, which makes the job much more navigatable. One could leave Zoellick to apply and maintain their Agenda as a key member of the Trilateral Commission (which controls everything else), a signatoree of the January 26, 1998 Project for the New American Century, Deputy Chief of Staff at the White House, former vice-chair of International of the Goldman Sachs Group, Managing Director, and Chair of Goldman Sachs’ Board of International Advisors, and Executive Vice President of Fannie Mae. Zoellick also recieved the the Knight Commanders Cross from Germany.

Zoellick’s decision to stand down comes at time of increasing uncertainty, as he aknowledged in his speech in September 2011 at the George Washington University. Zoellick has observed:

“The ground is shifting under our feet.”

That the rich world can no longer pretend that it has all the answers, and as economic and political power moves towards ‘developing’ countries it is time for those countries to be seen as partners and not as wards of rich nations.

But as the coporate media looks at Zoellick’s acheivements, there is no reason to even consider that the common man, woman, and child will fare any better than they did under Zoellick’s presidency when the imperialistic mentality of the main contributors to The Bank.

The World Bank

The presidency of the World Bank or more correctly the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) has always been held by a U.S. national, as the IMF has always been a European thus ensuring imperial domination of the global economy. Based in Washington, the World Bank was initially established to rebuild Europe after WWII.

The main contributors are France, Germany, Japan, the U.K., and the U.S., and decide where the money goes each with a representative on the board of executive directors. The 187 member countries (182 only have 19 votes for representation amongst them) are shareholders with an admin budget of U.S$.2bn, 10,000 staff, the World Bank gave loans and grants in 2011 to the tune of U.S$.57bn. According to the World Bank, it raises money by selling AAA-rated bonds on the worlds financial markets. Their bonds are bought by both private and institutional investors. Then there are the net earnings from The Bank’s assets.

Who has the Bank Helped

The Bank has helped formerly classified 3rd World countries to remain poor, and just as there is no responsible accounting for the money it lends, on the part of The Bank itself, and the recipient countries, The Bank continues to lend in questionable situations, which points to another agenda. Examples include Guyana, Liberia, Peru, Nicaragua, and Syria that have all defaulted on loans received in the past. So who/what is The Bank really helping?

It is usually the borrower, not the lender that makes an application. It is with much intrigue that one observes the reverse has The Bank presented itself on more than one occassion as the solution to Egypt’s Arab Spring. Let us be reminded that WWI and WWII was fought for control of the world’s naturals resources, and continue to be reminded:

The Third World remains poor because the powerful strive to dominate every choke-point of commerce. One key choke-point is political control through the “co-respective” support of local elites. Where loyalty is lacking, money will be spent to purchase it. If a government cannot be bought or otherwise controlled, corrupt groups will be financed and armed to overthrow that government and, in extreme cases, another country will be financed to attack and defeat it.… The pattern has been well established repeatedly throughout history and throughout the world, as noted by the well-known philosopher Bertrand Russell,

An enormous proportion of the income of nations and individuals, nowadays, is blood money: payment exacted by the threat of death. Therefore the most prudent nation is the nation which is in the best position to levy blackmail.…Modern nations are highwaymen, saying to each other “your money or your life,” and generally taking both.” – J.W. Smith, The World’s Wasted Wealth 2, (Institute for Economic Democracy)

The World Bank and Land Grab

As much as The Bank warned the world about the ethics of land grab, The Bank has played a major role in perpetuating this form of neo-colonialism that has uprooted and has disposed thousands of people in Africa, Asia and The Americas. In order to sustain the wealth of vulture investors, not only have thousands of people been deprived of a place to live, and a sustainable life, but the very land grabbed only benefits the investor. In the process land fertility is reduced to povide cash crops and biofuels for rich countries.

This is in fact not much of a departure from the pre-Zoellich era when in the 1970s The Bank financed barbaric policies that led to the deaths of tens of thousands of boat people in the Sotuh China Sea. The mechanism was a U.S$60mn loan to the Vietnamese government when they had organized massive concentration camps. The loan was to finance an irrigation project, much like the loan to be given to Egypt’s irrigation project in 2012. The reality was the creation of agricultural settlements where 4- 5 million people were to be resettled, and led to farmer rebellion. Those farmers who resisted were sent packing quite literally in leaky boats of whom thousands drowned. The Bank continued to give loans until the U.S. Congress said otherwise.

The same again happened with Ethiopia, and is happening again now under land grab. Back then, it was in the middle of a famine in the mid 1980s. Heavily financed by The Bank, the forced resettlement program killed more people than the famine.

The World Bank and the Environment

The Bank has been behind the financing of roads in Brazil that has led to the deforestation of the Amazon at a rate of 137 species from the plant, animal and insect kingdom a day is being lost to humankind. Twenty-five percent of Western pharmaceuticals is derived from these rainforests, and 74% of plant-derived compounds in current use globally comes from research based on the ethnobotanical knowledge of indigenous peoples. The Bank financed controversial building of hydroelectric projects including U.S$450mn in a country that has no respect for the indigenous peoples it disposes. From deforestation in Brazil the size of the U.K., to desertifcation the size of Texas in Botswana, Africa causing death of thousands of animals, and unsustainable living conditions for the people.

There’s a ‘whiff of hypocrisy’ to rich countries’ advice, he said. ‘When [advanced] countries with large fiscal deficits preach fiscal discipline to poor countries—what are they really saying?’” Zoellick told the Washington Post in September 2011.

That ‘whiff of hypocrisy” underlies all loans made to developing countries but beyond a whiif, it is a crime against humanity. As the International Criminal Court of Justice preoccupies itself with the task of criminalizing African leaders who lean in favour of a people’s democracy, we end with a Class Action suit in the case of Chad:

The year 2000 witnessed the beginning of the construction of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline, an important pipeline for the then 5th poorest country globally, and land-locked Cameroon. The Bank’s contribution was just 4%, and backing to multinational oil companies to raise money on the market.

By June 2003, oil was flowing.

By 2005 it was quite evident that World Bank backing consisted of agreements that was as usual leading to human rights abuses by the Chad and Cameroon governments, and allowing the multinational oil companies to remain unaccountable for their actions, e.g the fishermen, and farmers were denied access to water and land, and anyone who questioned this was arrested and incarcerated.

By 2008 the World Bank closed the Chad account, and took 10% of the oil revenue apparently for the future generations ignoring the government’s call to fight against poverty at the time from what they had a right to; when the regional development plan ensured 5% for those who have been affected by the project. The World Bank could do so becuase the Chad government agreed to a “revenue management plan” which meant that revenue from the oil was put into an offshore account, audited by an Independent Revenue Oversight Committee.

At what point do the future generations begin is none too clear 1 years later when the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) at the World Bank carried out a performance report that only stated what everyone else new at the time as:

“ Jointly, civil society organizations from both Chad and Cameroon demand without delay an independent audit of the environmental and social COSTS Of THE PROJECT IMPOSED ON THE COMMUNITIES IN THE OIL PRODUCING REGION AND ALONG THE PIPELINE ROUTE and ask for reparation.” – Group Tchad

According to the Center of Energy Economics:

“ Ten percent of royalties and dividends (representing about 85 percent of expected revenues over the first ten years of production) are to be invested with an external financial institution in long-term investment instruments, representing the “Future Generations Fund.”

The question remains, what happened to the 10% of oil revenues that The Bank took following The Bank’s 2008 statement that:

“Chad has now fully prepaid both the IBRD and IDA components of the loan, as of September 5, 2008.”

Banking on the Colonial Past

Quite literally this is how rich countries maintain their imperial position as their colonial debts were transferred to become the responsibility of the former colony at very high interest rates. Haiti is a modern day example of this transaction.

“Freedom was acknowledged at the price of a huge ransom. On July 11th 1825, under threat of an expedition equipped aboard 14 vessels armed with 500 cannons, Haitian leaders were forced to sign a treaty with the king of France, Charles X. The King proclaimed by royal decree that the current inhabitants of the French part of Saint Domingue would pay the French Federal Deposit & Consignment Treasury in five equal terms for each subsequent year the amount of one hundred fifty millions francs. The first payment was due on December 31st, 1825 to compensate former colonizers who claimed loss and suffering. “We concede, under the stated conditions, as per the decree, that the current inhabitants of the French part of Saint Domingue to have full  and complete independence of their government.”

Haiti had to pay France 150 millions gold francs as ranson, which later became 90 million or U.S$21bn. Haiti was the richest of the Caribbean islands, and kept paying until 1888 its exploiters for being exploited until it can hardly stand on its own two feet.

So naturally for globalist, Zoellick current president of the World Bank, globalization, or neoimperialism represents the only way, there is no alternative as stated in his 2001 speech at the Heritage Foundation. Zoellick warned developing countries recently about the impending recession:

Among other things, developing countries “could help by avoiding entering into trade disputes and by allowing market prices to move freely.”

As critics call for the U.S. to not monopolize the impending vacancy for the presidency of the World Bank, the issue is not the World Bank, but the 187 countries that supply the means for the World Banl to continue exploiting and impoverishing the natural and human resources of other countries for the benefit of the major imperial powers.

By Hwaa Irfan

Islam does not support the practice of fortune telling, and neither do I. With time, one learns that whatever is going to happen depends on two factors, that one is in control, and what is not under one’s control. What is within one’s control is one’s  heartfelt intentions, and even then it is influenced heavily by what level of being one is at, at the time to be able to manifest that intention. What is not under one’s control are external factors including the actions of others, and that one will see a new day. If we are honest with ourselves, we can say who are now, but we can not say what we will be tomorrow – how much we would have learnt from today, and how willing we are prepared to apply those lessons least to the greater good.  

However, what I do here, is look for His signs in everything, wherever they may be, even in the person we do not like very much. Sometimes who and what we do not like is represented by something or someone we have misunderstood because of our egos, and at this time in our human development, I look to a symbolic representation of the unification of self which is reflected strongly in what is happening in Egypt currently. For those of you who are tired of this news, please bear with me.

As we approach 11 February 2012, tensions mount for it commemorates this day in 2011 when the youth revoluntionary forces succeeded in forcing their now former president to step down. Tensions have mounted between different factions since then, represented by the ego/ the ‘Lion’, in this case the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, and the conscience or the “Waterbearer” the Egyptian youth. The Egyptian revolutionary youth as if from above have been driven to defend this revolution. This revolution has erupted at a time when man in danger of falling completely under the ‘Veil of Forgetfulness’ without ever accessing our souls, and hence our true selves. Latter Day Saint, David Peck refers to Islamic scholar…

Sayyed Husayn Nasr, a prominent Islamic intellectual, informs us that: “The purpose of reciting the Qur’an and other spiritual exercises is to ‘awaken the soul from the dream of forgetfulness’ and enable it to ‘gainthe supreme principal knowledge for the sake of which it was created.’” This is an invitation to pierce the “veil of forgetfulness,” which Islam likens to a dream state. Also referred to in the gnostic “The Apocryphon of John” and in certain traditions around the world, we are being warned on many levels so that we may wake up!

The Ego vs. the Conscience

To New Agers, the “Dawning of Aquarius” represents a new era of peace and harmony for the world.  Aquarius is the sign of the “Waterbearer.”

Five days before the commemoration of the January 25th Revolution, the Lotus Revolution (lotus represents the jihad an nafs – the struggle from the lower self to the higher self) the soul/Sun entered the astrological sign of Aquarius. The influence on our Earth has been well documented and evidenced. As we see the conscience of the Egyptian people struggle for something so fundamental yet not appreciated by counter revolutionaries, and those who struggle for less, the key influence of  Aquarius is humanity. As a global influence we will either be open to it or not before the Sun leaves Aqaurius on 18 February, even though the influence will linger for some time afterwards.

As a global influence, more people will respond to this global call from above, and as such may we synchronize for the benefit of all. For Aquarius represents group awareness, an awareness that may conflict with sectarian views, the kind of awareness that currently is incomprehensible to those deep in self interest. It is like two worlds in one, where the aware seem like a threat to the sectarian, when all the aware are only struggling for the greater good. As that idealism bursts forth from youth, youth who in the West are a separate entity going through a phase, those idealistic youth will feel like athreat to many of the older generation who have compromised much of themselves to live and perpetuate what has led to the sacrifice of their own souls.

These revolutionary youth,  are only but the nations conscience daring to dream, and inviting all to dream with them in order to create a better world for all. They invite us to break with old patterns, and habits that serve no beneficial purpose in the long run, and if we dare to listen, learn we can all learn to live a more wholesome way. They act from a deep unexplained knowing that they are not only thinking of their nation. They are not to be confused with the youth who have taken hook, line and sinker, the concept of youth we have been brainwashed with since the 1950s.

When we are resistant to change, change finds ways to disrupt the straight jackets that we have put on ourselves.

Four days (January 21st) before the commemoration of the move towards the Lotus Revolution,  at 16.00 UT, Sunspot 1401 catapulted a blast of radiation towards our Earth. Depending on what state of existence we are in the affect can vary, but affecting human activity depending on its strength. From cessation of power, to acts of aggression, from hyperactivity to justice being done. Then of course impact on information technology. By January 21st 2012, the credibility of the ego-lion, SCAF, was waning, after a period of silencing the conscience-bearing waterbearers whose outcry revived what seemed  like a waning Lotus Revolution. They reclaimed the revolution as the anniversary drew near, and the Sun began to shine through what was an unusual European winter.

By January 24 solar flares erupted from Sunpost 1402 rushing towards Earth at 2200 kilometres a second, sending charged particles that entered Earths atmosphere on the 24 2012 14:18 UT. With calls to step down SCAF had scheduled the Ashura Council elections the week following the anniversary they though they had claimed, to face failure with a 15% turn out – this was a sign that the people and not just the youth were none too happy with the fact there had been no real change from what was deemed obsolete. Since then, protests, met with resistance, thus violence erupted from peaceful demonstrations mobilizing the nation around 74 deaths that arose out of a football match.

Despite the fact that Mercury entered Aquarius on January 27, the opportunity for creative thinking the lion and its supporters did not act in a manner that could resolve the situation, and lead to reconciliation, but instead has led to separation. That opportunity fell only on the shoulders of the conscience, in this case the newly elected People’s Assembly that remembered that they are their to serve the people and not the other way around and in doing so, the call grew louder from different sections of the population, but not all, for the lion/SCAF to stand down. The lion refused, and then compromised by bringing forward the presidential elections by a month.

The ‘Veiled’ lion/SCAF had missed out on 7th February, when the full moon (Aaaymul Baydh in the Islamic lunar calendar) was the opportunity to bring out the best in us, with the full moon under the influence of Aquarius – the noble, and true, the soul of our Sun, and the constellation of Leo also noble, but self aware, and creative –  the Waterbearer, the free spirit, the humane, the group conscience who innately does what is right, and the proud lion both together could have offered a way forward for all, for all us have taken sides, preferences that we have mistaken for choices, but the God given gift bequeathed to man above all of His creations, involves personal will, a will that we mistake for our choices which have been coerced, mainpulated, and subdued to the lowest common denominator – and with that, comes the divided self.

The struggle between the waterbearers of Egypt, and the factions that keep trying to extinguish the January 25 youth Revolution, is the struggle of the divided world, and hence the divided self, all of which in the year of personal and collective power, 2012, cannot subdue the revolution of the self, the Lotus Revolution, which will evolve a more wholesome global society, alongside, those who have become totally addicted to the anti-life.

Other Divine Forces at Play

11-01-12 is under the strong influence of higher teachings, which if we submit to staying on the lowest vibration, is aggressive, and reactionary to anything that does not reinforce that position of self interest. It is a window of opportunity that calls on the individual to become part of the whole in order to waken from that sleep in which our hearts can never find contentment. From the 3rd February to aid that process, the planet of spirituality, Neptune is in constellation that it guides, Pisces after 165 years, i.e. 1899.

Like a message in the bottle, after 165 years, it was last month (January 2012) that the media informed us of the findings of Charles Darwin’s fossil collection has been found 165 years later – talk about timing. In February 1899, the U.S. experienced the great blizzard with freezing temperatures that reached sun city Florida. It was also the year that Cuba became independent from colonial Spain.February 4, 1899, was the revolt against U.S. occupation of the Philippines, Feb 6th, the Spanish-American war ended. It was not until July 1899 that the Hague’s Humanitarian Law was signed in.

As the planet of spirituality, Neptune returns to Pisces after 165 years, the U.S. and Europe have been experiencing phenomenally bad weather conditions, but their is no peace on the horizon – does this mean we have learnt less than we did then?

Neptune will be in Pisces until 2025 offering us a chance to rise from the ‘Veil of Forgetfulness.’ On it’s brief visit to Pisces April-August 2011, was not long after that the Occupy Movement came to life. This time round, we find many of us are confused, but rather than label it, or be controled by it by reacting negatively, we should allow the invisible doors in our lives to appear from Pisces, which represents the collective conscious. If we want to be healed from the pain of our miscreations, rather than struggle back into that straight jacket, we should allow time and to reveal without conditions. But just to add spice to the journey, the desire for action, and sex is complicated by Mars goign retrograde, and we may even find ourselves putting a lot of effort into something that does not deliver the goods, and hopefully we will learn from that too!

Evolution or Involution?

As SCAF send out forces for 11 February to ‘control’ the Day of Civil Disobedience, the ego must be mindful of the tricks it plays on us, but hopefully learn from past mistakes, like the big mistake SCAF made on the football violence that led to 74 deaths in Port Sa’id, Egypt. This means greater flexibility, and a willingness to divine the truth for if we keep repeating old patterns, we will get the same results unless we are ready to open to what comes from our consciousness represented by the waterbearers. This will also mean greater sensitivity, but if we remain centered within, then we will be guided by our higher selves, the greater good that is struggling to increase its vibration. Our egos/SCAF have no choice in the matter – did we think we could get away scotch free from our actions without suffering the consequences?

Once we see the truth about ourselves, we are then more able to recognize our true strengths, make the necessary reforms so we can expand upon basic principles from which to sustain us, and those around us no matter how far for this is the Lotus Revolution, and the rising from the “Veil of Forgetfulness.”

It all depends if we choose evolution or involution –  will we drink from the waters of life poured out of the pitcher of the waterbearers (our conscience), that ushers forth through Leo’s the lion/SCAF upon society? Or will we only listen to. Act from the ego, Leo’s head?

The challenge has been set by the full moon in Aquarius-Leo when the call for greater freedom around the world may look as if it has been silenced by the establishment, but watchout for old patterns that serve no greater purpose to the benefit of all will be challenged, for full moon in Aqaurius-Leo stabilizes the seeds of idealism, and the new moon in Aqaurius will help to find a way! If the will is active, the choice is ours between:

–        Dreams or nightmares!

–        Compassion or betrayal!

–        Forgiveness or hypocrisy!

We might feel imbalanced by a rush of experiences, never experienced before, but this is just a part of our unfolding to a greater dream, and one which we can navigate if we learn to have faith in the aprt of ourselves that dares to escape the ‘Veil of Forgetfulness’ that separates the ego from the subconscious, and the conscience.
