Mixed Reception for Tony Blair in Middle East













TONY BLAIR GETS LOTS OF CRITICISM IN NEW MIDEAST ENVOY JOB -- WHO IS BEHIND IT?

I wondered what deal had been made to allow Tony Blair's appointment to the Quartet's Middle East envoy position. The Foreign Policy Association had opposed his appointment. Rumor was that Javier Solana had as well; however, cleverly, blame was shifted to the Russians while the appointment was delayed. Meanwhile, as shown on Solana's Council of Ministers of the European Union website, Javier Solana was shown in a global power position consistent with the statements he made to the Brookings Institution forum on Global Governance led by Javier Solana in Washington, D.C. on March 21, 2007. In the picture above, he is posing with the International Criminal Court principals. Click on the pictures to view them in more readable size. To read these accounts yourself, click here, and here, and here. At any rate, it seems Tony Blair is having lots of trouble on new job. It might be telling to see who is helping to stir it up. I have my own guesses. Stay tuned!

Tony Blair is appointed as Quartet envoy to Middle East

News flash: We will be doing two hours of radio time this Saturday on www.theMicroEffect.com.
My guests will be:
1. Barry Chamish 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Time, (11 a.m. Pacific Time) on ISRAEL AND THE EUROPEAN UNION;
2. Attorney Peter Vellenga and I will be discussing from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.: THE MEGIDDO PROJECT.
Please tune in and "stay tuned" for both. Thank you!


TONY BLAIR IS NEW "THE QUARTET" ENVOY TO MIDDLE EAST
Click on picture to left and upper title for complete link to news.
Who knows what sort of back room deals were made, but for the present, Tony Blair, the just departed Prime Minister of Great Britain is the new Middle East envoy for "The Quartet." The Quartet consists of the United Nations (BanKi Moon), the United States (Condoleezza Rice), the European Union (Javier Solana) and Russia (Sergei Lavrov). As I wrote yesterday, it was reporte that Javier Solana was against the appointment because he thought it would detract from his primary role in the Middle East Peace Process. Javier Solana has been the only constant among all the configurations, starting in 1991 (perhaps even earlier). At any rate, it appears that there was eventual compromise and "consensus" on the appointment. It should now be extremely interesting to watch events play out.
Also, I have a brand new article about extremely disturbing new developments on the implantable microchip scene. You may link to it by clicking here:
As usual, I appreciate your comments and suggestions, and as Herb Peters always reminded us, "Stay tuned."

Javier Solana vs. Tony Blair?




Click on pictures to enlarge!


JAVIER SOLANA VS. TONY BLAIR?

Post writing update: The editors of Foreign Policy magzine, by and large the CFR crowd, posted their own blog entitled "Five Reasons why Tony Blair would make a bad Middle East Envoy." This same crowd gave awards in the past five years to both Javier Solana and Tony Blair. This probably tilts the odds somewhere in the direction of Javier Solana's favor, but who knows? Stay tuned!



The developments grow more curious by the day. Tony Blair is no longer Prime Minister for Great Britain. Gordon Brown, Blair's former finance minister has succeeded him as both Chairman of the Labor Party and Prime Minister for England. Tony Blair seeks a new spot as envoy to the Middle East on behalf of The Quartet. People have come and gone with "The Quartet for Peace in the Middle East." The only player who has remained constant among all the various configurations of that and a predecessor effort, "The Mitchell Commission," clearly has been Javier Solana. Now Tony Blair aspires to the job of the Quartet's representative.

According to the Middle East Online News service:

US President George W. Bush has signalled his support for Blair, who has been his closest ally in the so-called "war on terror". But the EU's foreign policy chief Javier Solana is said to be opposed to the move, because it would detract from his own efforts in the Middle East, according to the FT. Schwarzenegger, who lavished warm praise on Blair for his leadership on tackling global warming, for his part said he was "very happy" there was discussion about Blair becoming the quartet's representative. "I think that he is without any doubt a great, great diplomat and is very very knowledgeable about this. And it will make me feel good if someone like that will be there and negotiate," he added. "But for a selfish reason I hope that he becomes an envoy for the environment... Maybe he can take on both of the challenges?" [1]

Watching who is commenting on this is even more fascinating. "Schwarzenegger"? Isn't he supposed to be the governor of California? How did he get in the middle of the Middle East On Line story? Oh, he happened to be visiting Tony Blair on his last day in office!

Only Javier Solana appears to be opposed. It should be most interesting to watch this one play out. For the present, I'm holding my bets! As usual, I welcome your comments and input! As Herb Peters admonished us, "stay tuned." Make sure you keep watching his website as well, linked to the right on my blogspot. Holly and Adam are doing a great job!

"The treaty is also set to include most of the main points of the failed constitution, such as:
a full-time president of the European Council - the regular gatherings of prime ministers and presidents a new foreign affairs chief, with the profile and the budget to give the EU more clout on the world stage fewer national veto powers more powers for the European Parliament a slimmed-down European Commission (from 2014) Britain and the Netherlands also got what they wanted from the summit."

My educated guess is that these new enhanced powers will quickly go to Javier Solana. I more than suspect it is a "done deal." Stay tuned!

CURIOUS TRIANGLE: MAURICE STRONG, PAUL MARTIN & JAVIER SOLANA



To my readers:

This is the article I worked on till 5 a.m. Friday night/Saturday morning. It went up on NewswithViews.com. I have taken the liberty of reprinting it here and have already received favorable comments from Canadian readers on its contents. We continue to mourn Herb Peters' recent death and ask our readers to remember his family in prayer. Holly is maintaining the link I have as "Herb Peters" at http://www.fulfilledprophecy.com/. If you have not already ordered his book from Amazon or another supplier, I urge you do so while they are still available. As usual, I welcome your comments!

By: Attorney Constance CumbeyJune 17, 2007
http://www.newswithviews.com/

In March of 1995, there was a near shooting war at high sea between Spain and Canada. Javier Solana was close to beginning his 6 month dual coinciding presidency terms as president of both the 10 nation Western European Union, a military federation and the EU itself. He had BIG plans that would definitely need Morocco's cooperation. Solana's larger agenda included the Barcelona Process. It would be opened by a "Barcelona Conference" scheduled to take place in Barcelona, Spain on November 27, 1995. It was to be a federation of 27 Mediterranean basin nations. He wanted it to: (1) Battle religious fundamentalism, worldwide; (2) Mutually advantageous trading terms over the area's resources leading to a Mediterranean Free Trade Zone by 2010; (3) Get the USA out of the Mediterranean and/or greatly reduce its presence there.
Morocco was to pose a little problem and Solana was working to solve it. Historically there has been little or no love lost between Spain and Morocco. Solana could not put the Barcelona Process together and sell it to the Arab population countries without Moroccan support or at least lack of opposition. Morocco demanded concessions. Solana who enjoyed extraordinary powers for a mere cabinet official in Spain (he being the official spokesman for the country for many years) negotiated and gave Morocco what they sought. What they sought was (1) the ability to sell their produce in Europe. Although the concession deeply impacted the produce growing economy of the European Mediterranean and southern Atlantic countries of France, Greece, Portugal and Spain, this was granted. Next, Morocco demanded that Spanish fishermen stop fishing off her coastline. This was granted and the Spanish fishermen were ordered home.
It was March of 1995. Six hundred unemployed Spanish fishing trawlers with their owners and crews were sitting angrily unemployed in the Spanish harbors. It was suggested to them that they could and should "go fish Canada." They went to Canada's Newfoundland waters and fished the cod, halibut, and turbot fishing stocks nearly to extinction. Canadian correspondents tell me the stocks have never fully recovered. Canada, of course, was not happy about this. I was told by former American ambassador to Canada, former Michigan governor James Blanchard, that the United States at that time assisted Canada in detecting that the Spaniards were fishing using illegal methods. Blanchard confided in me that electronic devices had been employed in making this determination. Nothing much was done, however, until a Spanish trawler, the Estai, crossed the boundary from international waters into Canadian waters. When this occurred, Canadian authorities boarded the ship and took both ship and crew into custody.

At this point, Javier Solana leaped into action. He promptly dispatched three Spanish warships against Canada. Various scholars have worked in an intellectual vein to understand the event in terms of international law. Solana was most vocal about his differences with Canada, threatening the breaking of all diplomatic relations with her.[1] A political analysis would be much more relevant, but few have analyzed Dr. Solana and his broader motives.

Knowing this background and what it meant to the Canadian economy, I was more than a little puzzled when Canada joined with the USA in supplying the unanimous votes that boosted Solana to global power in early December, 1995 -- his NATO headship. Advantageously, shortly before the Barcelona conference began on November 27, 1995, Javier Solana made fishing peace with Morocco. This meant that Canada would be left alone with the few fish remaining as the Spaniards went happily back to their warmer water fishing grounds. The settlements were not advantageous for Spanish fishermen. The Gonzalez government of which Javier Solana had long been a part went down in disgrace. Javier Solana did not have to worry, however. He had a new job in Brussels -- overseeing NATO. There he would also chair the Transatlantic Alliance. The Spanish economy would suffer:


"Spain had also experienced a fishing conflict with Canada around the same time
of the conflict that banned her ships from Moroccan waters. The resolution of
both conflicts was not extremely favorable for Spain. Their fishing fleet had
been experiencing problems and the resolution of the Moroccan and Canadian
conflicts seriously reduced the fishing possibilities of the Spanish fleet. The
figures reflect Spain's fishing trouble. In 1994 and 1995, Spain's total catch
declined. Tangentially, Spanish consumers were faced with higher costs and less
supply. These aspects have caused Spanish fish consumption per capita to
decrease. The employment ramifications of the resolution of the Moroccan "fish
war" will have to be addressed, especially in Southern Spain. In Southern Spain
and the Canary Islands, over 25,00 people rely on the fishing industry around
Moroccan waters for their livelihood. These results will have to be addressed by
Spain's politicians. However, in 1996 Spain was fully integrated into the EU's
Common Fisheries Policy, which should help to mitigate the loss of catch in
Moroccan waters and its effects on the Spanish fishing industry."[2]

Canadian friends tell me that politicians upset at Solana about the fishing wars were suddenly and viciously marginalized in Canadian politics. Suddenly, very little was said about the economic earthquake. They and I both wondered why. I was curious as to why my own name, "Constance Cumbey" was associated on various search engines such as Ask.com as a related name to that of Javier Solana. I was even more curious when Paul Martin's name appeared on that list. Paul Martin is a former Canadian Prime Minister. The only New Age flag Javier Solana really flew publicly was that of the Club of Rome. Canadian Alexander King was a co-founder of the Club of Rome. Canadian billionaire cum esotericist Maurice Strong was involved and was to become a leading UN figure in setting up a global governance mechanism that saw its fullest expression at a Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992. Maurice Strong has been photographed in group meditations at the New Age "Vatican City" of Findhorn. They were praying to whatever "source" they acknowledge for "the Reappearance of the Christ." By "Christ," they definitely did not mean Jesus. Strong was there as part of an excursion with Lucis Trust/World Goodwill folk under the auspices of something they call the "World Service Intergroup." Using their own words, "


The purpose of the World Service Intergroup is to generate a focused, conscious
and deliberate intergroup effort to specifically assist the Externalization of
the Hierarchy and the Reappearance of the Christ. . . . One of our tasks is to
recognize them ["hierarchy"], and assist them by preparing humanity for the
imminent reappearance of the World Teacher. This World Teacher, or The Coming
One is known by many different names in the various spiritual traditions:
Christ; Maitreya; Messiah; Imam Mahdi etc. This reappearance will be preceded by
a widespread opening of the heart of humanity, and a recognition of the inner
teacher in each one of us, manifesting as a consciousness of love and service to
all.[3]

I have had more than a sneaking suspicion over the years that Javier Solana, too, was involved in this push. Sometimes I have even suspected he might even be a prime candidate as the person for which all this psychological and global governance preparation was about. Maurice Strong is strongly dedicated to the “emergence” of their New Age “messiah.” He was photographed with a World Service Initiative trip to Findhorn.

Curiously, this World Service Intergroup was organized in Washington, D.C. in 1995 by Gordon Davidson, husband of Corrine McLaughlin. They were also organizers of the Sirius Community. Gordon Davidson claimed credit for developing "the Valdez Principles" which basically committed corporate America to sharing in the financial and organizational life by incorporating environmentalists on their boards and in their finances.

Is this "New Age"? Most definitely, yes! Are they consciously working both politically and as they put it as advancing their eerie Luciferic rituals, "spiritually"? Yes! Organizer Gordon Davidson, never afraid to witness his convictions writes on their website:


New York 2000 . . . In April, 2000 we met during the Aries Full Moon in New York focusing on the descent of the Shamballa Force in the year 2000, with the keynote, “The Shamballa force is in reality Life itself; and Life is a loving synthesis in action.” We also used the Six Laws and Principles of the New Age to lead us towards creating a vision of how these principles might create patterns for the New Civilization humanity will be constructing over the next 2500 years. A few of the multitude of ideas regarding the Shamballa force that impressed the group were: it signifies humanity leaving adolescence to mediate between the higher and lower kingdoms; it is a power taking humanity to a neutral zone where you see a different world which gives a new vision; the forces of destruction and synthesis are working at the same time, and if the motive is wrong we will have synthesis that brings destruction; every individual and group will have to ask what is my/our purpose? We also worked with the energy of synthesis during that conclave to create a shared intergroup keynote that all the groups would use as they chose in the coming year. The keynote was “Creating world unity, peace and plenty through universal thinking, unifying love and synthesizing will.” Pasted from www.synthesis.tc/history.htm

Now, how does all of this tie together with the ubiquitous Dr. Javier Solana? In 2003, Paul Edgar Philippe Martin Martin became the Prime Minister of Canada. It was under his watch that Canadian soldiers would be impressed into Javier Solana's European army. In fact, now relations between Canada and Solana's EU are so cozy, one would think Solana helped them raise fish rather than exterminate them. What might the common thread be then and now but “global governance” of which Dr. Solana with the active assistance of the Brookings Institution are now so very much in play? Canada’s former Prime Minister Paul Martin was mentored by Maurice Strong. Paul Martin and Maurice Strong remain close. Both are obviously "initiate" in the occult mysteries.

Maurice Strong has put his money where his mouth is on this. Maurice Strong is deeply involved with those running the World Service Intergroup. Paul Martin remains active in Canadian circles. Canada has deeply involved itself in "global governance" as well as "the Law of the Sea" with which George W. Bush has also announced intentions to bind the USA. Amusingly, the Law of the Sea "global governance" people are now telling Canada that its waters contain two species of sharks which must be preserved.

Maybe the Canadians need to know that they face land sharks as well as those in the water!

Memorial Tribute Internet Broadcast for Herb Peters

Herb Peters' (Herbert Loren Peters) funeral will take place tomorrow in Lake Isabel, California. Needless to say, my preplanned radio program involving Holly Peters Pevic (Herb's daughter and internet website successor) and Herb himself will not be able to happen. Dear mutual friends of Herb Peters and myself, successful patent attorneys from the firm of Rohm & Monsanto will join me http://www.themicroeffect.com/ at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time; 1 p.m. Central Time; Noon, Mountain Time, 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Our discussion will be:

1. Our memories of working with Herb Peters.

2. The extensive research Benita Rohm and Raphael Monsanto (a husband and wife patent and intellectual property lawyer team) have done on the globalization and global reach of patent laws and how this is helping to shape the New World Order (oops! "global governance").

We ask that Herb's friends who are not fortunate enough to join his family tomorrow in Lake Isabel, California, join us on line and in the chatroom of the MicroEffect.com at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, June 16, 2007. We will be honoring his work and I will read your tributes of him that are in the chatroom on the air. This will help us all, in Herb's words, "stay tuned!" We will have Holly join us in the weeks to come.

If you are able to get to Herb's funeral and join his family there in honoring his memory, these are the directions as posted by Holly on http://www.fulfilledprophecy.com/:

Herb's funeral has been scheduled for this Saturday, June 16, at 11 a.m., at the First Baptist Church of Lake Isabella (3701 Suhre, Lake Isabella, CA 93240). The church phone number is: (760) 379-5615.
To get there, take Highway 178 East from Bakersfield to Lake Isabella until it hits Highway 155. The church is just to your right. Just to warn you, the drive from Bakersfield to Lake Isabella includes an approximately 30-mile, very winding canyon road.

IN MEMORIAM TO HERB PETERS



IN MEMORIAM TO HERB PETERS

To my readers:

As most of you probably know, Herb Peters and I have shared information, research, insights, and many, many long distant hours of discussion since 1999. He was to have been my guest on my first internet radio program only three weeks ago. We postponed it when Herb was told that he would need emergency gall bladder surgery. Herb then told me he was still awaiting the needed surgery and they were straightening out insurance details. Confident that the surgery was over and giving him sufficient time to feel a little better, I called and spoke with Linda Peters last Wednesday and then I spoke for several minutes with Herb Peters himself. He told me the doctors had given him two months only to live. This would be the last time I would ever speak with him. I am weeping as I write this but remembering with comfort the words from Revelation: "Blessed are those who die in the Lord." That is clearly where Herb was! Needless to say, Holly will be busy Saturday as they prepare to mourn Herb's loss and celebrate the blessings of God having given us Herb's life. Pray for his family. Support his family. Pray for me too as the work Herb and I were doing as a team must continue. I will reschedule Holly as soon as possible. I will post details here after I get to my office for those of you who wish to mail condolences to Herb's family. Forgive me for the brevity. I am in shock. I have taken the liberty of reprinting Holly's words from FulfilledProphecy.com below.

As regards the picture. It is a picture I never really (grin) forgave Herb for publishing. The "they made it happen" refers to Mike and LaMelva Eubanks, who coordinated THE WATCHMAN SPEAKS conference in Michigan where Herb and I after many years of talking first shared a speaker's platform. I was in bad photogenic form -- my sister Linda Butler Kanyuh Ragatz had just died and I was just leaving for her funeral in Fort Wayne, Indiana, having to cut my attendance short at the Eubanks' wonderful conference. The photograph of Herb and I was shot by Linda Peters, Herb's wife, just before I left. It was a bad hair day, but now I am grateful to have this remembrance of one of my most valued associates.

May he rest in peace.


CONSTANCE E. CUMBEY

From Holly Peters Pevic:

Herb Has Passed
Early this morning, my father, Herb Peters, went to be with Jesus. He is and will be missed. We will give an update as soon as we can with the funeral time and location. He died much more quickly than we anticipated since we were told he had two to three months left. But during the past week, he declined very quickly and, in the last couple days, all of us realized it might take place much sooner than we had thought. We're thankful for the quality time we got to spend with my dad in his last days on earth. It was an incredible time with much loved shared. Thank you for your prayers. Our family has felt them.

Kosovo and Jerusalem: The Role of the "International Community" in Dismantling Yugoslavia and Its Parallels in Ongoing Efforts to Destroy Israel
by Mr. Chaim Pekovic

Sunday, June 10, 2007

HO! HO! THE FIRST TO GO IS KOSOVO!

HO! HO! KOSOVO IS THE FIRST TO GO! JERUSALEM, VATICAN CITY, SALT LAKE CITY, MECCA NEXT?

Update: A reader asked for more clarity. They are right. I fortunately don't have to reinvent the wheel. I found an article by a Jewish writer on a site that has sometimes contacted me called "Root and Branch." The author has laid an ominous scenario, one that I too have thought much about since 1999. I have had countless conversations with Herb Peters and Dorothy Margraf about my thoughts on this. I am grateful that somebody in Israel saw the obvious as well. My introductory comments on the original article follow and Dorothy Margraf's contribution below. Forgive the length, but this is VITAL MATERIAL to understanding our time and what I fear may well be coming:


Kosovo and Jerusalem:
The Role of the "International Community" in Dismantling Yugoslavia
and Its Parallels in Ongoing Efforts to Destroy Israel

by Mr. Chaim Pekovic

The former nation of Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) was seem by the world as a successful model of socialism. Its status as a regional power in the Balkans, strategically located between Europe and the Middle East, has always attracted Great Power attention. This attention, as seen in World Wars One and Two, continued after the Second World War.

Yugoslavia rose from its World War Two Nazi German occupation to defeat post-occupation ustashe (Croatian Nazis), balists (Albanian fascists) and chetniks (Serbian royalists).

Defeated Croatian Nazis, Albanian fascists and Serbian royalist forces fled Yugoslavia and found refugee in various Western countries. Host governments welcomed these Nazis, fascists and royalists as "political refugees" who had struggled for "freedom" and "democracy" against Communism.

Behind these slogans were other Western interests, primarily the global economical interests of a growing European Union which viewed Yugoslavia, 284,000 square kilometers in size, as rich in natural and human resources and as a potential rival.

Weakened Yugoslavia, with its developed infrastructure, would be a perfect source of cheap labor for Western economies. Also, the Western world has great interest in the Muslim and Arab worlds. Former Yugoslavia, with large Muslim populations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Kosovo, presented an opportunity for improving Western-Islamic and Arab relations by favoring Muslims in local Yugoslavian conflicts.

Israel, a regional military and economical power in conflict with Arab Muslim neighbors, finds itself in a position very similar to that of now defunct Yugoslavia.

Historical background

Most media consumers today are taught that Albanians in Kosovo and Muslims in Bosnia and Herzegovina are indigenous peoples who were always there, while Serbs were colonizers and aliens.

The historical facts are the exact opposite.

The first Serbian state was formed on territories of today’s Kosovo and Metohia, Sand'ak and Northern Montenegro. After the Turkish conquest of Serbia, Turks settled a Muslim Albanian population in Kosovo to enforce Turkish power in the region. By the end of the Seventeenth Century, Serbians backed Austria in it’s wars against the Turkish Empire as a Christian Power about to liberate the Balkans from Turkish rule. Turkish authorities responded harshly and allowed Muslim Albanians to terrorize the Serbian population in Kosovo, which caused the flight of many Serbian refugees.

The Austrian Emperor invited Serbians to settle abandoned lands in Vojvodina and Eastern Croatia now known as Kraina to protect the Austrian Empire from Turkish invasion. The Serbs expelled from Kosovo moved to parts of Croatia that had been desolated in Turkish invasion and remained there until the 1995 expulsion.

Turkish sponsored Albanian attacks on Serbs in Kosovo caused many more Serbs to continue to flee. Attacks on Serbs continued throughout the Second World War and after Kosovo was granted autonomy by the Yugoslav constitution in 1974. This means that Albanians achieved a majority in Kosovo through terror and persecution.

Before the Turkish occupation, Bosnia and Herzegovina were settled by Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats. Turkish authorities encouraged conversion to Islam by giving Muslims tax exemptions. Many local Serbs and Croats converted to Islam. Their descendants represent the Muslim population of Bosnia and Herzegovina today.

In 1941 Nazi Germany and Italy, together with their allies, occupied Yugoslavia and established the puppet "Independent State of Croatia" on the territories of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Srem. Kosovo become part of Italy's "Greater Albania". In both puppet states ustashi and balists began to exterminate the Serbian population. In the "Independent State of Croatia" the pro-Nazi regime murdered about million Serbs, almost the entire Jewish population and left alive only 500 Gipsies.

After the War, New Yugoslavia was founded on federative principles. The Croatian state was formed as a state of Croats and Serbians, while Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed as a state of Muslims, Serbs and Croats.

The Jewish People returned to reestablish ancient Israelite sovereignty in the Land of Israel. There was never Arab sovereignty in any part of the Land of Israel. Today's "Palestinians" are descendants of Arabs who immigrated to Turkish and then British Mandate Palestine, attracted by the developing Jewish economy. The Jewish State was formed as part of the U.N. partition plan after the terrible Holocaust that Jews suffered during the World War Two.

Dismantling of Yugoslavia

During 1991 and 1992 Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina unilaterally seceded from the Yugoslav Federation, triggering war in Croatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In both Croatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the decision to secede was made by first removing references to Serbs from the constitutions, so that the decision to separate was carried out against the will of one of the constitutionally recognized peoples in the respective states. Such decisions recall bad memories from the Second World War which helped trigger the outbreak of that conflict.

Serbian national spirit always resisted foreign diktats (this spirit cost Serbs countless dead in both World Wars). Serbs fought for justice, even if it did not concern Serbs, and rejected the use of force to settle disputes. Those two national characteristics led to confrontations with Western powers. Serbs were not favored by Western media, which expects persecuted peoples to act and cry in front of their cameras.

On the other side, Croats, and especially Muslims taught by Arabs, were experts in media manipulation. Western mass media demonized the Serbs, declaring them responsible for the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s.

Reality was different. All three sides, Croats, Muslims and Serbs, engaged in atrocities against civilian populations. Only those committed by Serbs were reported world wide. Outside the Balkans no one learned of ethnic cleansing in Eastern Bosnia (Bratunac district) where 22 Serbian villages were razed by Bosnian government troops. In Western Herzegovina Croats exterminated the Muslim and Serbian populations and even blew up the old bridge in Mostar.

Despite the fact that most of those convicted for war crimes by the International Court at the Hague were Muslims, only Serbs were only blamed for war crimes. Media bias against Serbs reached such extremes that Muslims succeeded to manipulate world media coverage to change the military situation through two staged incidents.

In the summer of 1992, a few months after the outbreak of war, a bomb blew up on Vasa Mickin Street in Sarajevo, killing people waiting in a bread line. Media cameras had been pre-positioned on the spot to record the incident. Serbs were immediately blamed for the crime despite the fact that no one could prove the shell was launched from Serbian positions around Sarajevo. This incident was used as an excuse to impose harsh economic sanctions on Yugoslavia in order to stop the Yugoslav government from helping the Bosnian Serbs.

In the summer of 1995, a similar incident took place in Sarajevo’s main market, called the Markale. A bomb exploded and killed people in a crowded market in front of numerous cameras that, again, were pre-positioned to record the incident. The Serbs were again immediately blamed for the crime despite the fact that, again, no one could prove the shell was launched from Serbian positions around Sarajevo. This incident was used as a pretext by N.A.T.O. forces to attack Serbs, paralize their communications and force them to create, against their will, a state shared with Muslims and Croats (who also preferred not be part of a united Bosnian state).

Anyone familiar with Middle East affairs immediately senses the same pattern of media manipulation that we witnessed in the Balkans reappearing in Gaza, and Kefar Kana in southern Lebanon, for example.

International community adopts double standard policy in former Yugoslavia

With the outbreak of war, Serbs in Croatia established independent regions in parts of Croatia where they were the overwhelming majority. Serbian national opinion was clear. Serbs did not want to live in an independent Croatian state. They claimed they were afraid of possible new genocides that could be carried out by Croatian ultra-nationalists.

During 1995, the Croatian government began negotiations with Serbs about their integration into Croatia. During negotiations in the summer of 1995, the Croatian army backed by N.A.T.O. warplanes invaded Serbian territory, destroying Serbian missile units. The Croatian army advanced quickly, using Serbian prisoners of war as human shields.

This Croatian Army operation, called "Storm", succeeded in expelling almost the entire Serbian population. Long lines of refugees fled their homes while the "international community" remained silent. There were no sanctions against Croatia, no threats to Croatia to bring those refuges back. The "international community" silently supported Croatia's ethnic cleansing of Serbs.

After Bosnia and Herzegovina left the Yugoslav Federation in 1992, Bosnian Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina wanted to express their right to self-determination and to form an independent entity. They formed the Serbian Republic primarily on territories where they were the overwhelming majority (Eastern Bosnia, Western Bosnia called Bosanska, Krajina and Eastern Herzegovina).

Western powers wanted a united Bosnian state. In 1995 they forced Bosnian Serbs to sign a "peace agreement" in Dayton, Ohio, in which three entities were created, Muslims and Croats established a Federation and a Serbian Rebublic was established in confederation with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

After the signing of this agreement, of which the United States was a guarantor, the "international community" began to change the structure of Bosnia and Herzegovina step by step, removing it from the jurisdiction of the Serbian Republic.

These changes have now reached a critical point where Serbs cannot accept anymore a Federal Government, backed by the "international community", which urges "reform" of the police by placing them under the authority of a Federal Government, diminishing further the power of the Serbian Republic.

In both Croatia and Serbia Serbs continued to be denied rights of self-determination granted other people in the former Yugoslavia: Slovenes, Croats (except to Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina), Muslims, Albanians and Macedonians.

Over the past three centuries due to unrelenting pressure on the Serbian population, Albanians succeeded in becoming the majority in Kosovo.

In Kosovo itself there was never Albanian sovereignty, so creating an independent Albanian state in Kosovo has no legal or moral justification.

In the late 1990s, Albanians formed a military terrorist group called the K.L.A. (Kosovo Liberation Army). Its aim was separation from Yugoslavia. The K.L.A. began an uprising against Yugoslav authority on sovereign Yugoslav territory. No government in the world would tolerate the formation of independent military units on its territory, nor would it tolerate a separatist revolt. The Yugoslav army was sent to suppress this uprising, a perfectly legitimate move for a sovereign state.

N.A.T.O. used this as an excuse to attack Yugoslavia, even against the will of the United Nations. The N.A.T.O. attack was presented as a humanitarian intervention to protect the Albanian population against so-called Serbian genocide despite the fact that no Albanian was expelled and no Albanian village was destroyed before the N.A.T.O. attack.

Never before had N.A.T.O. attacked another state to protect an allegedly endangered minority, despite numerous opportunities to do so, for example to prevent Arab Muslim genocide against Christian and native religion Africans in southern Sudan; or to stop terrible atrocities in Ruanda.

The real reason for the N.A.T.O. attack was not "humanitarian". U.S. President Clinton was having political problems arising from his relations with Monica Levinski and he needed something to divert public attention from that.

For the Western World here was another opportunity to appease the Islamic world.

For N.A.T.O. this was an opportunity to test equipment and tactics (as Nazi Germany did in the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War) in a big military exercise in preparation for future conflicts (such as an attack on Israel).

The N.A.T.O. attack ended with the withdrawal of the Yugoslav army from Kosovo and deployment of the U.N. K.F.O.R. which failed to protect the Serbian minority from Albanians.

N.A.T.O.'s so called "humanitarian mission"'' resulted in the further expulsion of Serbs from Kosovo and in the destruction of monasteries built in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, monasteries that were supposedly under U.N.E.S.C.O. protection.

Last year Montenegro conducted a vote on independence in a referendum in which a third of Montenegrin citizens were denied the right to vote. If those citizens, who live mostly in Serbia (which was still part of the same confederation when the "referendum" was held), were permitted to vote the results would be totally different.

The Montenegrin ruling party brought Albanians from abroad who had left Montenegro years ago. Their votes were crucial in wining the 55% majority needed to declare independence. The majority of Montenegrins were for a state union on a federal-confederate basis with Serbia. Such a crucial decision, on independence, was made without getting 50% of the votes of registered voters. The "international community" welcomed this referendum, the same one which would be overruled in any Western democracy as unconstitutional.

Those double standards were justified firstly by the claim that the aim is to overthrow Slobodan Milosevic and his tyranny. It is impossible to accept such a claim after N.A.T.O. bombing of Belgrade [Belgrade was bombed by Nazi Germany in the spring of 1941], the city which lead the anti-Milosevic struggle, the city in which demonstrations against Milosevic were daily.

The bombing of Belgrade could only help Milosevic consolidate his power. After Milosevic's fall, double standards were justified on the grounds of poor cooperation by Serbian authorities with the International Tribunal at the Hague, despite the fact that Serbian authorities allowed the extradition of Milosevic and gave up the opportunity to try Milosevic for crimes he had committed inside Serbia against Serbs during his oppressive rule. By this policy the entire Serbian people was collectively punished for what individuals did.

Double standards are not exclusive to former Yugoslavia. They are the rule of the game in the Israeli-Arab conflict. The "Palestinian Authority" was never condemned for its terrorist activities, its refusal to recognize Israel and to reach a peace agreement.

On the other hand, Israel is condemned when it defends itself, is threatened with war crime charges while the "Palestinian" side is never charged for war crimes with its use of human populations as human shields or for numerous terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians.

Epiloque

In these very days Kosovo is going to get independence while the "international community" simultaneously continues its efforts to destroy the Serbian entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Serbs there may again attempt to proclaim independence from Bosnia and Herzegovina, which may trigger another war.

Again, the Western mass media will demonize the Serbs and prepare the ground for another international intervention on behalf of oppressed Muslims, again resulting in another ethnic cleansing of Serbs, this time from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Creating economically dependant states in the Balkans will destabilize the region. It will encourage other separatist movements throughout the world (for example in Quebec, the Basque region, Catalonia, Flanders, the lands of the former Soviet Union, etc.) and lead to potential crises which could be unleashed by a coming global economic crisis.

TO MY READERS: President Bush received thunderous applause and a hero’s welcome today in Albania over his pronouncement that Kosovo should be an independent nation. This potentially means that the Serbian Orthodox holy city equivalent of Jerusalem might soon be turned over to Moslem interests. Jews, Christians, and Moslems alike should take heed of this dangerous precedent of ripping somebody's holy city from them -- it means that Jerusalem, Vatican City, Salt Lake City, Mecca etc. are fair game to take and give to a majority that moves in and occupies. Watch for the same pressures to be put on Israel vis a vis Jerusalem! This is TRULY FASCINATING as only two people I know of have received this heroes' welcome: JAVIER SOLANA in 1999 and GEORGE W. BUSH in 2007. JAVIER SOLANA has long called for Kosovo independence. My educated guess is that he is the source of some of GWB's ideas on this.

I published this earlier in the day on my comments section and called researcher friend Dorothy Margraf for a reaction. Great minds (ahem, broad grin!) sometimes think alike. She told me I had better go read earlier incoming email from my alternative email address. She had today sent me writings on her Kosovo concerns from a Jewish perspective. She thought it was too long to clutter the comments section of my blogspot – personally, I thought it so important, it should be a story, so it follows below my comments here.

By further way of introduction, some of you may recall the PowerPoint Show Presentation,"Javier Solana: Mystery Man of the New World Order," I circulated that as a form of educational “Solana Share Ware,” I included a slide that said that “A dangerous precedent was set by Solana over Kosovo – it’s ok to take somebody’s religious capital!” Dorothy Margraf has pointed me to some fascinating history on the region, even more intriguing in light of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of World War II: that Adolfus Hitler failed to reduce the Balkans before taking on the USA and Russia. It is my opinion that Javier Solana may well have induced us to do it for him and the interests he represents.

One more thing before I hand this over to Dorothy Margraf: There was a fascinating story on line today: France’s Sarkozy pulled a humiliating surprise on Javier Solana at the G-8 by proposing that the G-8 wait before making a decision on Kosovo independence. It looks like George Bush has gone to Solana’s public image rescue on this. I wonder what his position will be vis a vis Jerusalem as the EU’s Solana obviously is putting very similar pressures on Orthodox Jewish Jerusalem as he did Serbian Orthodox Kosovo!

I will look forward to your comments and feedback. Continue to pray and support Herb Peters and as he so often reminds us, “stay tuned!”





REFLECTIONS ON KOSOVO AND JAVIER SOLANA/USA’S BALKAN POLICY

By Dorothy Margraf

I posted much of this over at Israel Forum, but thought I'd share it here [Cumbey.blogspot.com] also.

Start at the beginning. The New Age movement began to flourish in the early 1900's. The New Age movement now frighteningly similar to the Nazism which grew out of the early years of the New Age movement. You may watch the hyperlinked video for yourself and decide.
As Nazism had, the New Age movement now has a formidable political following. The push for one world government has a long history.

Look at some of the pieces of the puzzle before us. The Kosovar Albanian country is over 90% Muslim.

Kosovo’s Nazi Past: The Untold Story
By Carl Savich
1. Introduction: Genocide in Kosovo

“During World War II and the Holocaust, Kosovar Albanians killed 10,000 Kosovo Serbs and expelled 100,000. Kosovo-Metohija was made a part of a Greater Albania by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Hitler and Mussolini realized the Greater Albania ideology established by the 1878 League of Prizren. Albanian-settled areas of the Balkans - Kosovo-Metohija, western Macedonia, southern Montenegro - were incorporated in a Greater Albania. The Greater Albania Kosovar Albanian nationalist movement murdered Kosovo Serb civilians and took over their lands and houses. Kosovo Serb women were raped. Kosovo Serb Orthodox priests were arrested, tortured, and murdered. Serbian Orthodox churches and monasteries were attacked and destroyed. Serbian monuments, cemeteries, and gravestones were desecrated and demolished. The Greater Albania nationalist movement formed the Balli Kombetar, the Albanian Kosovo Committee, and the Skanderbeg Nazi SS Division, two-thirds of whose members were Kosovar Albanian Muslims. Kosovar Albanian Muslims played a major role in the Holocaust, the murder of European Jews. Kosovar Albanian Nazi SS troops participated in the roundup of Kosovo Jews who were later killed at Bergen-Belsen. What occurred in Kosovo during World War II was genocide. The mainstream accounts of World War II have censored and covered up the Kosovar Albanian role in the genocide against Kosovo Serbs and the role of Kosovar Albanians in the Holocaust. The Nazi past of Kosovo remains an untold story. (

Now who ran the NATO forces that favored Kosovo and worked to destroy the Serbian community...
well none other than the New Age movement connected Javier Solana before he became head of the EU.

I am digressing this evening to research I did on Javier Solana starting on March 21, 1999.

Should Jews support an independent Kosovo?

"A few days ago (2 February 2007) an article was published in the Forward (‘The Jewish Daily’) with the following headline: “
Kosovo Seeks Jewish Backing for Independence.” In my opinion, this would not be a wise move by the Jewish community. It might even be a terrible mistake!

"I set below the main facts of what really happened in Yugoslavia, which are contrary to what most people have been led believe. This way, interested Jews can learn what it is they are being asked to endorse.

"Bosnia Jewish support for Kosovo independence is being sought today just as Jewish support was also sought for Alija Izetbegovic and his Muslim followers in the former Yugoslav province of Bosnia in the 1990s.

"Why were the Jews asked to support Izetbegovic's Bosnian Muslims?

FOUR OUT OF SIX ISLAMIST TERROR PLOTTERS IN US KOSOVO ALBANIANS
WASHINGTON POST (USA)

“Plot illustrates Balkans' role as Islamist foothold”

Prosecutors described the men as "radical Islamists," with four coming from the province of Kosovo in the former Yugoslavia, where the ethnic Albanian population of Muslims fought one of the several wars that grew out of the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Suspect Agron Abdullahu, who faces only weapons violations in the case, was described in court papers as a "sniper in Kosovo." U.S. officials said the Islamists were motivated by al Qaeda sympathies.

In my opinion, the Muslim community is a particularly vulnerable tool for New Age planners!

Would the majority of the Jewish community even recognize a resurgence of Nazism? Probably not. According to the book Blood and Banquets, written about Germany in WWII by a Jewish woman in high society, the Jewish women didn't have a concern about Hitler because he was kissing their hands at banquets. How could they know that several hundred miles away his people were tearing up Jewish businesses? What is our excuse now as we have the internet to tell us what is happening miles away?

Update: Holly's statement on www.Fulfilledprophecy.com:

Note: Herb and Linda Peters gave me the personally uprooting news on Wednesday that Herb had undiscovered cancer that is now in terminal stages. He is expected to have only two months to live. Since Herb and I have interacted so very deeply on the European Union and Javier Solana issues since November 1999, I feel I will be losing one of the few people that completely understands this very complex subject. We shared information completely since our mutual discoveries. Up until 1999, I had only the very brilliant Dorothy Margraf to discuss these discoveries with. When I discovered Herb via the internet, that gave me another kindred spirit with whom I could talk. Holly, however, is right. We must "stay tuned"! The following is written by Herb's brilliant and capable daughter, Holly, a Biola graduate, who has pledged to keep her father's necessary website alive! My blogspot and any website I am enabled to start will be open to you as well!


Fulfilled Prophecy -- Staying
Tuned

by Holly (Herb Peters'
daughter)


It's with deep sadness and tears that I, Holly, am writing this update for my father, Herb. This is the last thing in the world I want to be writing, and I'm not even sure how to say it. We got news on Tuesday that he has very advanced colon cancer that is terminal. The doctors have estimated that he has two to three months to live. I know this news will be a complete shock to many people, as it has been to my dad and our family. He was told previously that his condition was his gallbladder and that he simply needed surgery. But when he went into the emergency room hoping to speed up the process for the surgery, he learned his true condition. This explains the pain he has been experiencing now for many months that he had thought was related to his back condition. The cancer was symptomless, other than the increasing pain he recently began to have.


The one thing that has made all this news easier is my dad's incredibly positive attitude. He said that when he was first given the diagnosis he had no fear or panic. Instead, he felt a peace knowing that, if this is the Lord's will, then He knows what He's doing and He will walk with him the whole way -- as He's done through my dad's entire life. My dad said he's excited to meet Jesus. His strong faith during this difficult
trial has been so amazing to me, our family and friends. He's been such a strong witness for Christ to the healthcare workers and hospice people who've been helping us out. He wants me to tell you that, for some months before his diagnosis, he had been telling many people (including myself, my mother and brother, Constance and others) that he had a sense that the work God had called him to -- reporting on a series of events that appear to be the fulfillment of end-time Bible prophecies -- was done. He felt the entire end-time scenario is now in place. So, when he received the diagnosis, he felt like it was a confirmation of what God had already put in his heart. He feels a peace and excitement about the next stage -- though he isn't looking forward to the process between now and then. He knows many people have been praying for him, and he is grateful. His prayer request is that God will give him what he's calling "dying grace" -- the ability to face death with courage. He also really wants the information on FP to be preserved online so it will be available for people searching for the record of events this Web site has reported on since 2002 (events my dad has been following since 1992 and that are documented in his book and on this site). My dad has charged me with the task of preserving the information on the site -- a task I embrace humbly and with a deep sense of responsibility. I share his conviction that FP must be kept online, and I will be doing so with the continued support of all you who've followed FP. I will provide updates as time goes on, but ask for your continued support during this transition. My dad especially asks for continued financial support to keep FP going and also to help my mother, Linda, with all the unexpected costs the family will have during this time. Please keep him and our family in your prayers. Prayers for healing, of course, are also welcomed by my dad -- though he wants everyone to know that he has peace during this time and knows that, at the end of this difficult process, he will be with the Lord and in a much better place. As the apostle Paul says, to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord, and it is far better to be with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8).
My dad wanted me to be sure and tell you what deep feelings of affection he has for all of those who've followed FP all these years, contacted him and supported him. Thank you from him, Linda and our entire family. He's also excited to know FP will go on and said that if he can see things on earth from where he's going, he'll enjoy watching how FP continues to be used by God. As events continue to unfold that appear to be fulfillments of ancient Bible prophecies, I know he wants everyone to "Stay Tuned!"

PRESIDENT BUSH'S NEW WORLD ORDER LEGACY
By Cliff Kincaid

June 2, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

With his record of defending American borders and national sovereignty in ruins, President Bush has decided to conclude his second term in office by making common cause with those who think America’s future lies in appeasing the “international community.” He apparently wants his “legacy” to be that he cared for the rest of the world. Watch your wallets—and your freedom.

The latest phase of this “legacy building” campaign began with a plea on Wednesday for more money to fight AIDS. This provided a photo opportunity for the President to pose with a black child. So far, about $200 billion has been spent by the federal government on AIDS, without any cure or vaccine being developed. But it looks “compassionate” to throw money at the problem. Tens of billions are now being spent, some of it provided by agreements brokered through Bill Clinton’s foundation, to fight AIDS with potentially toxic and lethal drugs.

On the eve of the G-8 meeting of major industrialized nations in Germany, Bush gave a global warming speech on Thursday at an event hosted by the U.S. Global Leadership Campaign. This is a coalition of business and non-government organizations that includes the pro-world government Citizens for Global Solutions, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Ted Turner’s U.N. Foundation, Planned Parenthood, the American Friends Service Committee, the Alliance for a Global Community, and the United Nations Association.

It looks like Bush is abandoning what’s left of his conservative base before they abandon him.

Bush told the group, “This is a fine organization and it’s an important organization. It’s rallying businesses and non-governmental organizations and faith-based and community and civic organizations across our country to advance a noble cause, ensuring that the United States leads the world in spreading hope and opportunity.”

Another part of this “legacy building” is his decision to seek ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), a dangerous document that transfers control of the oceans and much of the land area of the world as well to a U.N. bureaucracy. It finances its activities with a global tax. The pact is endorsed by some of the same groups and individuals involved in the Global Leadership Campaign.

UNCLOS charges American corporations a “fee” for exploiting ocean resources for the benefit of America and threatens these same corporations with global climate change litigation before an international court if they “pollute” the oceans from anywhere on the face of the earth.

U.S. Navy support for UNCLOS masks the sharp decline in U.S. Naval forces. The number of U.S. ships has declined under Bush to 276, from a high of 594 under President Reagan, who rejected UNCLOS. The Bush budget projects their further decline to 210. The American Shipbuilding Association says that, if present trends continue, the U.S. Naval Fleet will decline to 180 ships by 2024.

Those who haven’t been paying attention think that Bush’s policy for the last six years has been “unilateralist” and anti-U.N. He did keep us out of the global warming and International Criminal Court treaties. He also withdrew the U.S. from the ABM treaty so the nation could pursue national missile defense. But generally speaking, he has been pouring huge amounts of money into the U.N. and associated institutions. Office of Management and Budget figures show that U.S. financial contributions to the U.N. System under Bush have gone from $3.1 billion in fiscal year 2001 to $5.3 billion in fiscal year 2005.

The office of Senator Tom Coburn, who requested and released the information, commented in a press release that “According to the report, in 2005, the United States gave $5.3 billion to the U.N—a 30% increase from 2004 funding level of $4.1 billion. Almost every Department of the U.S. government plus several independent agencies fund the U.N. Although the U.N. does not track this information or at least does not make such information public, most experts say the total U.N. budget is between $15-20 billion. The U.S. funded portion is between 25% and 30%.”

But that’s not good enough for the Global Leadership Campaign. It thinks too little has been spent on international affairs.

In his speech to the group, Bush seemed to be proposing another and much-tougher global warming treaty. “By the end of next year, America and other nations will set a long-term global goal for reducing greenhouse gases,” he said. “To help develop this goal, the United States will convene a series of meetings of nations that produce most greenhouse gas emissions, including nations with rapidly growing economies like India and China.” He said each nation would develop a “national target” of reducing greenhouse gases.

With this speech, Bush has capitulated to the alarmists who blame man-made greenhouse gases for perceived changes in climate.

In the past, at the G-8 meetings, the Bush Administration has been opposed to measures by France and Britain to endorse global taxation schemes. One of them, an international tax on airline travel, was sold as a “solidarity contribution” to fight AIDS. A new bureaucracy, UNITAID, has been created to receive and spend the global tax revenue.



The U.N. has been pushing a global tax to fight global warming that amounts to a 35-cents-per-gallon gasoline tax hike.

This time, it can be anticipated that Bush Administration opposition to global taxes will completely collapse. After all, the White House has already endorsed a global tax scheme through the Law of the Sea Treaty.



All of this opens the door for Congress to promote and pass a carbon tax of some kind, perhaps as part of the new global warming treaty that Bush apparently envisions. It will be difficult for Bush to resist such a tax, in light of his recent rhetoric on the subject.

Bush is putting in place the New World Order his father talked about.
