|Not part of this story, but thought JD, Suzanne|
and Dorothy might want to check this one out! Transhumanism,
What follows is a brief outline of the thesis put forward by writer Bat Ye'or in her book Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. My information is based on her book (which should be read in full). In addition I have drawn from some of her articles and interviews. I republish the information with her blessing, but this summary is completely my own. (Page 289, of the "2083" Manuscript)
"Under and within the world concept of the United Nations Organization, one must create the Family of the Middle East in a regional structure called, it may be, the United States of Abraham, and the first practical step would be to form a Council of Abraham. If at first all the Peoples, Nations and States of the Middle East are not willing or able to join the Union, one must nevertheless proceed to assemble and combine those who will and those who can. The salvation of all the peoples in the Middle East from war or servitude must be established on solid foundations. In all this urgent work, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians must take the lead together."
"For untold aeons, the Hierarchy has stood like a shield, guarding humanity. But with the coming of a greatly increased mental development, with the repudiation of the Hierarchy by the bulk of humanity, and by the prostitution of religion to material ends and narrow theological and mental tenets, the Hierarchy has been forced . . . to withdraw some measure its protecting power . . . The way to the door where evil dwells was unimpeded and humanity opened wide the door [this refers to what the New Agers term 'peoples of the book turning to the one true God!] The entrance for what might be regarded as cosmic evil was first opened in the decadent days of the Roman Empire [a typical New Age blaming of Emperor Constantine who first made persecution of Christians illegal].
"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 . . 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 . . . the Christian faith also has served its purposes; 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. THE 'HOLY LAND' IS NO LONGER HOLY, BUT IS DESECRATED BY SELFISH INTERESTS AND BY A BASICALLY SEPARATIVE AND CONQUERING NATION. [referring to Israel].
"The task ahead of humanity is to close the door upon this worst and yet secondary evil and shut it in its own place." (from Page 574 of THE RAYS AND THE INITIATIONS, Alice A. Bailey, Lucis Press)
“I wish to speak today about the tragedy of the Middle East. This noble ancient region is the fountain of the three Abrahamic faiths. It is the spiritual origin of more than half of humanity. If the Middle East were united in the sharing of its common inheritance, there would be no limit to the happiness, to the prosperity and the glory which its tens of millions of people would enjoy. Yet it is within the Middle East that have sprung frightful nationalist and religious quarrels, which have wrecked the peace and marred the prospects of that vast area of the world. “Yet all the while there is a remedy, which if it were generally and spontaneously adopted by the great majority of people in these lands, would as if by a miracle transform the whole scene, and would in a few years make all of the Middle East, or the greater part of it, free and happy as Switzerland is today. What is this sovereign remedy? It is to create the “Family of Abraham” – or “Family of Ibrahim,” dependent on one’s pronunciation of that hallowed personage – and to provide it with a structure under which it can dwell in peace, in safety and in freedom. We must build a kind of “United States of Abraham.
"The Aquarian Conspiracy is using its widespread outposts of influence to focus on the dangerous myths and mystiques of the old paradigm [us!], to attack obsolete ideas and practices." (Aquarian Conspiracy, page 34)
"Cultural transformation announces itself in sputtering fits and starts, sparked here and there by minor incidents, warmed by new ideas that may smoulder for decades. In many different places, at different times, THE KINDLING IS LAID FOR THE REAL CONFLAGRATION -- the one that will consume the old landmarks and alter the landscape forever." (page 37)
