The Netherlands vs. Javier Solana?

The Netherlands vs. Javier Solana: It should be very interesting to see how this plays out!

Holland is a complicated country. Its Queen Wilhelmina was a supporter of Theosophical Society sponsored Jiddhu Krishnamurti in his heyday as the supposed new world ‘messiah.’ It was believed that he was the vessel for “Maitreya”. The Theosophists had their world camp Ommen in that country as well as a castle to house the messiah-apparent in appropriate splendor.

In World War II, the Nazis used Camp Ommen as a concentration camp. When Javier Solana had difficulties in Spain, it was reported that Dutch connections were used initially to help him leave that country. Eventually he gained a Fulbright scholarship and studied in the USA, but the bulk of his undergraduate and graduate education was away from Spain.

The Netherlands had a well deserved reputation as the New Age capital of the world. It had staunch Christian opposition to it as well. My own book, THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW: THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT AND OUR COMING AGE OF BARBARISM is translated into the Dutch language and reportedly sold well in the Netherlands and its outlying territories. Corrie Ten Boom, one of my favorite writers hailed from Holland and spent time in a Nazi concentration camp, barely escaping execution there. Later she encountered one of her Nazi jailers and struggled with forgiveness issues before accepting him as a brother in Christ. Her book, THE HIDING PLACE, may be must reading for what may well be facing us as the New World Order with its various snoopervisory mechanisms continues its inexorable advance.

My personal opinion about the Danish anti-Muslim cartoons is that they were insensitive and somewhat akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater. The results were perfectly predictable. Long knowing the New Age slogan, “crisis = opportunity,” I have frankly suspected the motives of those putting the cartoons in the game. Further knowing the Alice Bailey cum Peter LeMesurier strategy of pitting “massed forces of the Old Age”[1] against each other, I am beginning to suspect there have been real rats in this woodpile.[2] Christians were slaughtered by Moslems in anti-cartoon riots in Nigeria this past weekend. Now today, I read that Christians were slaughtering Moslems in anti-Islamic riots there. Hmmm??????? Do I smell mounting justification for a campaign for a New World Religion? Hmmmm? No doubt, I’m reading too much into this. Don’t I wish!

Now it looks like another EU power struggle is in the making. Dutch Foreign Minister Bot has leveled sharp public criticism against Javier Solana for making an EU apology for the cartoons. The Dutch, per Bot, don't approve of the apology. Cristina Gallach, Javier Solana’s spokesperson says he is hoping the UN can find a way to outlaw “insensitive religious criticism.”

I’m certainly not for blasphemy. Neither am I for religious insensitivity. The European Union has in the past construed public criticism of its leadership as "blasphemy." I rather suspect Javier Solana thinks I am guilty of blasphemy -- against him! What about his sensitivities for others? I remember well back in early 2003 when Javier Solana with great ease ridiculed the USA and its residents for being “too religiously driven.” With great scorn he pointed out that we had “In God We Trust” on the dollar. “Can you imagine ‘in God we Trust’ on the Euro”, he said. “In Europe we are more secular.”

Maybe his anticlerical religious training was so deficient that he could not recognize the religious buttons he was pushing by:
a) Using the unfinished tower of babel as EU aspiration sloganry;
b) Naming his power-increasing Western European Union bill “Recommendation 666”;
c) Participating in the marginalization of Italy’s Rocco Buttiglione, so as to exclude him from EU leadership in EU President Barroso’s cabinet;

I don’t pretend to know all that is in the mind of Javier Solana, but I certainly can see that he has taken full advantage of the crisis. It has been an opportunity for him to tour the Middle East and lay out European mea culpas.

Here’s what I see shaping up and where this is going.

The war is now as it was in 1995 for Javier Solana and company on all ‘religious fundamentalism’ – worldwide.

A crisis was needed to shape the battlelines against religious fundamentalism. The cartoon crisis presents a very dandy one!

One is allowed to have a religion in the New World Order.

One is not, however, allowed to believe it is true.

One is not allowed to tell others it is true, unless one is into something New Agey and exotic, i.e., Rev. Moon is the Messiah, Sai Baba is a savior, Osho is a spiritual teacher. If you are into those pursuits and want to talk about it, that is called DIALOGUE. If one believes that Jesus is the Christ and wants to talk about it, that is called PROSELYTIZING. As Gina Cerminara bragged in her 1980s books and correspondence, it is basically a game of general semantics.

Well, it appears that Javier Solana has been challenged by one of his European foreign minister underlings. Whose crisis? Whose opportunity? Meaningful? Meaningless? It will be very interesting to see how it plays out. I’m inclined so far to put my money on Javier Solana, but who knows? As friend Herb Peters says, stay tuned!

[1] See Peter LeMesurier, THE ARMAGEDDON SCRIPT, St. Martin’s Press, New York (1981), page 237. In describing their action plan he writes, “The massed forces of the Old Age, however, will be unable to check their headlong onrush. In large measure they will go on to destroy each other in a massive, mutual venting of long pent-up aggression . . .” LeMesurier’s book was originally published by Thule Press of the very New Age oriented Findhorn Foundation and then by Element Press of Great Britain.
[2] For the Alice Bailey strategy, see for example the following from her book, THE RAYS AND THE INITIATIONS (Lucis Press originally known as Lucifer Press): “There are certain areas of evil in the world today through which these forces of darkness can reach humanity. What they are and where they are I do not intend to say. I would point out, however, that Palestine should no longer be called the Holy Land; its sacred places are only the passing relics of three dead and gone religions. The spirit has gone out of the old faiths and the true spiritual light is transferring itself into a new form which will manifest on earth eventually as the new world religion. To this form all that is true and right and good in the old forms will contribute, for the forces of right will withdraw that good, and incorporate it in the new form. Judaism is old, obsolete and separative and has no true message for the spiritually-minded which cannot be better given by the newer faiths; the Moslem faith has served its purpose and all true Moslems await the coming of the Imam Mahdi who will lead them to light and to spiritual victory; the Christian faith also has served its purpose; its Founder seeks to bring a new Gospel and a new message that will enlighten all men everywhere. Therefore, Jerusalem stands for nothing of importance today, except for that which has passed away and should pass away. The "Holy Land" is no longer holy, but is desecrated by selfish interests, and by a basically separative and conquering nation.
The task ahead of humanity is to close the door upon this worst and yet secondary evil and shut it in its own place. There is enough for humanity to do in transmuting planetary evil without undertaking to battle with that which the Masters Themselves can only keep at bay, but [755] cannot conquer. The handling of this type of evil and its dissipation, and therefore the release of our planet from its danger, is the destined task of Those Who work and live in "the center where the Will of God is known," at Shamballa; it is not the task of the Hierarchy or of humanity. Remember this, but remember also that what man has loosed he can aid to imprison; this he can do by fostering right human relations, by spreading the news of the approach of the spiritual Hierarchy, and by preparing for the reappearance of the Christ."
