Obama’s New Islamic World Order

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

The swords of Islamic solidarity in the region were the Islamist parties that Obama began empowering as he moved from Turkey to Egypt. Erdogan ordered Egyptian leader Mubarak to step down and dutifully that day Obama followed suit. Erdogan gathered up the Syrian National Council in Istanbul, dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and Obama endorsed the SNC and ordered the CIA to assist its weapons smuggling operation.

When the Islamist Al-Nahda Party took power in Tunisia, replacing a formerly moderate and pro-American government, Obama phoned to congratulate Hamadi Jebali and expressed his support for Tunisia’s “inclusive transition.” A month earlier Jebali had proclaimed at a victory rally, “My brothers, you are at a historic moment in a new cycle of civilization, Allah willing. We are the Sixth Caliphate.”

Hamadi Jebali then declared that the liberation of Jerusalem would begin from Tunisia and claimed to be a righteous Caliph guided by signs from Allah. (If Obama congratulated him on this latter feat there is no mention of it in the White House readout.)

Tunisia, like Turkey and Egypt, had gone from being moderate and pro-Western to a Jihadist state run by Islamists drunk on apocalyptic visions of empire. And all of it had happened with Obama’s support and approval. Where the mobs didn’t do their job, Obama did it for them.

Obama did it for them in Libya, as discussed in my pamphlet, “The Great Betrayal” and his next target is Syria. The unification of Egypt and Syria was an old objective for both countries and had already taken place before on a temporary basis. Now that the Muslim Brotherhood has Egypt, it also must have Syria to recreate an Islamic version of the United Arab Republic. If the Brotherhood succeeds in overthrowing the Jordanian monarchy, there will be a golden Sunni Islamist chain stretching from North Africa down to the Persian Gulf and up to Turkey.

Obama’s backing for the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria will mean the fall of the last major non-Islamist regional power. With Iran and Iraq governed by Shiite Islamists, and Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia ruled by Sunni Islamists—Syria is the last great prize. Its conventional and unconventional weapons and its territory offer great rewards for either the Sunni Islamists, who will be able to push toward Iran, or the Shiite Islamists who will push toward Turkey.

This deadly tug of war is a crucial point in the rise of an Islamic regional order, and it is a tug of war in which Obama intends to play the definitive role. Obama paid tribute to Islamist tyrants in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, he helped orchestrate the fall of Egypt and now as the election approaches, the last missing piece in Jebali’s Sixth Caliphate of the new Islamic world order is almost within his grasp.

“The Great Betrayal” demonstrated the disastrous consequences of Obama’s wars; but his betrayal of American national security, regional minorities and women to Islamists through diplomatic pandering and appeasement is even worse than his wars.

      Bush ouster a dictator and thought that democracy in Iraq would turn it into a more US friendly place. Bush called Islam a religion of peace. Bush family is close to the Saudis and have been for decades. The idea that democracy, voting is a cureall for the ailments in the Middle East is not a right/left or Republican/Democrat since both parties engaged in the same democracy transformation of the Middle East.

    It seriously makes me wonder if Stinky (-bo) isn't planning to not allow the elections to take place in November. You'd have to be seriously sick and flawed to vote for that thing a second time. I think the only way Stinks is in the White House in February is if there's a drastic change to our country.

      I've got to wonder how much he's going to cheat in November. What will America do if he does that again? Will we sit back and allow him to destroy our nation even more?

        I've wondered the same thing because I find it quite odd that he hasn't put much effort into campaigning at all — although I'm sure his war chest is gigantic and full of contributions from islamofascist petrostates.

    BHO is not only lying and use taqiyya (deception in Arabic). He said in 2009 that only police and army are not enough for security. What he meant? Situation in the World and in US remind very much Germany in 1930th but instead Arians supremacists making effort to dominate in the half of world we have Islamists who determine to dominate in the whole World, to conquer and destroy Western civilization based on Judeo-Christians values. BHO and his accomplices first tried to inspire, organize and use movement against Wall street. It turned to be not effective. Now in Chicago Nations of Islam (Farrakhan's anti-whites, anti-Christians, anti-Semite's gang) will keep order in city. Black Panthers is emboldened by WH politic.

    Islam has failed and its head is on the chopping block, there is not one successful Islamic conntrolled state. All Obama has done is to bring out the sword, as dull as it is. It is true, Islam can be a thorn in the side of the West, and the West is is for a long and often bloody struggle; but Islam is doomed in its on corruption and deciet, there never has been nor will there ever be an Umah!

    This seems to be Crazy Central here. I can almost see the heads spinning around.

    "Benedict Arnold," "Judas Iscariot," "the Anti-Christ." … "he never was a Christian or American to begin with." What happened to the rule against "ad hominem attacks"? Doesn't apply to the President of the United States?

    If the premise here is that Islam is purely evil, then everything you've written here is logical. But Obama and his administration recognize that the governments of Egypt and Turkey and Saudi Arabia, as important regional powers, must be dealt with in as constructive a manner as possible, whether we agree with their beliefs or not, unless they threaten the existence of our country. If you people ran things, we would be drenched in the blood of our children whom you would send to war under a Christian banner.

    You would like Obama to declare the United States a "Christian nation," which it is not. A basic premise of the United States Constitution is that no one is a second class citizen because of his or her religion. You are un-American in your prejudice. (And un-Christian too, I should say.)

    • Asher

      America was based on Judeo-Christian values..(From the Founding Fathers.there were no muslims here when this country was founded0…You just invaded us and pushed your religion and agenda off on us. "It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." Daniel Webster. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, George Washington, ….(There are no Mohammeds, or Muslim names in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution!!!!!!

      • jfhickey

        The First Amendment says:

        "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

        This has always been understood to mean that people are free to exercise their religion whether they are Christian or not, and that government may not impose any form of Christianity or any other religion. The courts in this country have always, rightly, been very rigorous about enforcing these constitutional provisions (despite claims to the contrary).

        Your implication that our country should favor Christians over others is unconstitutional and un-American.

        Daniel Webster was talking about people like you.

        • http://www.facebook.com/steve.dallman.1 Steve Dallman

          To endorse, and promote the spread of Islamic Fundamentalism, (now called Islamist Extremism) around the world and in this country, by the current administration is not the "free exercise of religion" but extremely dangerous to this country. Sharia law has no business in the US. Sharia is not freely exercising one's religion, but the imposition of the laws contained in the Koran on the citizens.

          • jfhickey

            This idea that the Obama administration is "endorsing and promoting the spread of Islamic Fundamentalism around the world and in this country" is ludicrous. You have been listening to hysterical misinformation put forward by politicians with no morals who want to manipulate the fears of ordinary people. So many people in circles like "frontpagemag.com" repeat this ridiculous lie to each other that they start to believe it. The Obama administration is obviously fighting Islamic terrorism worldwide. Obama personally directed the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, and our forces under his command have killed several other Al Quida leaders. The President has multiple substantive operations ongoing gathering intelligence on terrorist groups and heading off attacks.

            The fact that President Obama, who is a committed Christian, by the way, has spoken as a friend to mainstream Muslims may be offensive to you if you are a religious bigot, but it is a very good thing that the United States has an educated, intelligent leader who understands the American idea of religious pluralism and is not run by Christian fanatics who want to attack people just because they are Muslim.

            You say, "Sharia is not freely exercising one's religion, but the imposition of the laws contained in the Koran on the citizens." What experience do you have of the way American Muslims follow their religion? "Shariah" means the personal religious laws followed by Muslims. Those practices vary a great deal from person to person. The shariah an American Muslim follows in practices of dress, alcohol use, prayer, etc., will usually make no imposition at all on his neighbors, and it is despicable of you to attack innocent people who are just trying to live their lives in peace. Attacking an American Muslim because some Muslim crazy in Afghanistan freaked you out is very, very wrong. It is as wrong as Muslims in Afghanistan concluding that all Christians mean them harm. Not all of us do.

          • Jay

            Sharia has never been only a private personal matter. It impacts non-Muslims as well. Political Islam is no friend to secularism http://www.politicalislam.com/

            To the others, the US is not a Christian nation, and the founding fathers even said so. Many of the founding fathers were free masons, and deists.

            Thomas Jefferson "Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.

            -Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom

            To both Jhickey and the others were both Christians and Muslims to be like Jefferson "But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

            -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782

            Jhickey the US does treat people of all faiths equal but under Islam in an Islamic state, non-Muslims are not treated as equals but inferiors, if they are tolerated at all. Non-Muslims who are allowed to be dhimmis are tolerated (Jews and Christians). All others are not tolerated under an Islamic state. After confronting Zoroastrians of Persia and Hindus of South Asia initially they were not tolerated and for them it was conversion or death which could be commuted to enslavement. Later Zoroastrians and Hindus were allowed to be dhimmis like Jews and Christians.

          • jfhickey

            For a lot of Muslims, shariah is a private personal matter. Political Islam, whatever that means exactly, is no doubt the source of trouble. Violence in the name of Islam is certainly extremely hurtful to many people in many places in the world. These facts do not justify this insidious post or the bigoted comments that support it. The fact that some people commit violence in the name of Islam is not a good reason to attack the vast majority of Muslims who are living peacefully.

            And it is not a good reason to attack President Obama when he tries to constructively engage the Muslim world. Mr. Greenfield, the author of the post, would apparently like President Obama to declare that the United States, as a "Christian nation," will have nothing to do with any Muslim rulers, no matter how many people they govern.

            By the way, your description of "what is tolerated in a Muslim state" makes the incredible assumption that today's states must follow the behavior of Muslims in the 8th century. Would you advise Muslims to assume that "Christian states" still burn people at the stake for witchcraft if they don't denounce Satan and his works?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            And for a lot it's not. Until you can show how to tell the two apart, it's not a personal matter.

          • jfhickey

            I think for anyone for whom Sharia law is important, it would have to be personally important. And I think for most Muslims, whatever their personal religious discipline is would be called Sharia.

            Many countries in the Moslem world have enshrined "Shariah" in their constitutions, but it seems usually to be a vague, politically useful sop to be thrown to the militantly religious in those countries, and not a real, rigorous program of deriving secular law from Shariah. In Iran, they seem to be close to actually thinking of themselves as ruling by religious law, though certainly many thousands of Iranians who consider themselves Muslim do not follow the strict Shariah envisioned by the Mullahs.

            Government-enforced Shariah seems to me a disaster, whether it is Islamic Shariah or the kind of Christian Shariah that many "Christians" want here. And in many places violence in the name of Islam is much worse than just oppressive. It is murderous. But that is not a good reason to hate all Muslims, as this post seems to advocate.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I'm sure Daniel Pearl would find your rhetoric comforting.

            However that's not the real issue here. You're seem to think it's not dangerous to be near most muslims, can you show a fail safe way to tell the difference between the ft hood shooter and the harmless muslim like the girls in Afghanistan just wanting to go to school and get an education?

          • jfhickey

            I don't think I can always tell who might be a threat, but I think I can feel sure about a lot of people I meet. And this is true about many people I am vulnerable to of various ethnically and backgrounds. I have lived for several years in West Virginia, and for several years in Philadelphia before that, and I have hung around people that some people are afraid of. Usually you can tell within a few minutes whether somebody is potentially violent, and most of the time you can tell without even speaking to them. But there are definitely people where I can't tell, and I would feel very vulnerable if I was a soldier in Afghanistan, because there seems to be a significant if statistically small percentage of people who are willing to hurt American and even Afghan soldiers. So no, I can't show a fail-safe way to tell always.

            But is that the issue the post raises? The post seems to criticize President Obama for trying to constructively engage mainstream Islam, on the grounds, apparently, that all Islam is evil. And while I may not be able to always pick out a suicide bomber, I do know that the vast majority of Muslims are not suicide bombers, like the schoolgirls you mention and their families who mostly want them to get an eduication and lead a happy life.

            For a lot more Muslims- the Shariah is a rule of law they are willing to die for. To implement it, maintain it, spread it. and perpetuate it throughout time. If you wish to live your life under fear of being admonished physically by one more pious than thee.. then have at it and convert. Get in the front of the line and let us slackers be.

            With islam, it's not like that. Christians around the world are treated like scum and less than human. And the media ignores it, as if that makes it any easier on those being blown up and slaughtered. I wonder if hickey could go to Nigeria and help with the churches that were attacked, and then say the same thing with a straight face.

          • Jay

            You should be aware there are leftists, atheists, ex-Muslims who are secular who are aware of the dangers of political Islam and are speaking up. The counter jihad movement may right now have more conservatives but it is not only them. Here is a brave ex-Muslim who is fighting against political Islam and is pro all the liberal values https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSaOgH8PYe4&f

    • Kufar Dawg

      Islam has already drenched the world in more blood than the US has ever spilled. The 250 million some odd Christians, Jews, Druze, Bahais, Sikhs, Hindus and Buddhists slaughtered in the name of islam make any other ideology practically peaceful by comparison. The fact is, more people are being slaughtered in the name of islam in the 21st century than all other religious ideologies put together.

      • jfhickey

        Historically, I think you may be wrong if you are saying that "more people are being slaughtered in the name of islam in the 21st century" than all other religious ideologies put together in the history of the world.

        Christianity existed for 700 years before people got around to slaughtering people in the name of Islam, and I think it's pretty well established that huge chunks of the world's population were slaughtered in the name of Christianity in those 700 years and since then too. A lot of the slaughtering in religion's name was done in the Crusades, when Christians and Muslims slaughtered each other in the name of religion. Not nearly as many people slaughter in the name of Christianity these days, though some still do.

        I think all this proves is that people of both religions have been capable of bloodthirsty warfare. So let's knock it off, instead of whipping up more hostility, especially where the hostility is manufactured for domestic political purposes.

        • Kufar Dawg

          Get stuffed mullah boy. All I have to do is look at what the muslo-nazi apes did, and more importantly are doing, in the Indian sub-continent to refute you stupid Al Taqiyya lies. Some 80 million Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists were slaughtered and/or enslaved by muslo-nazi apes in their invasions there. Tamerlane,
          the great muslime ape, bragged about how many Hindus he had slaughtered and had hills made of the skulls of those he had beheaded.

          • jfhickey

          • jfhickey

            He doesn't have a point. But I have said several times that I am horrified by the violence in the name of Islam that is going on right now, in Nigeria and Mali and many other places. The point of the post was not that there is violence being perpetrated in the name of Islam. Everybody agrees this is the case. The question is what to do about it. The point of the post was to criticize President Obama for his attempts to engage mainstream Islam, partly to get support from Islamic countries to combat violence in the name of Islam.

            You don't think he had a point? Did you even read his comment?

            " Some 80 million Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists were slaughtered and/or enslaved by muslo-nazi apes in their invasions there. Tamerlane,
            the great muslime ape, bragged about how many Hindus he had slaughtered and had hills made of the skulls of those he had beheaded."

            That is a point, islam isn't just barbaric but brags about it.

          • jfhickey

            So a reported brag from Timur in the fifteenth century is evidence to you of what current Islam is like? You wouldn't want to characterize modern Judeo-Christian cultures by saying they burn people at the stake as witches or persecute Jews.

            There is no need to go to the fifteenth century to find atrocities committed in the name of Islam. There is plenty of that happening today. The point I'm trying to make is that this doesn't characterize all Muslims, any more than violence by Christians characterizes all Christians. If you look around you and see that thousands of American Muslims are living in relative peace with their neighbors, doesn't that jar you loose a little bit from your robotic approach to this question?

            A reported comment from the 8th century would still be amazingly accurate, they don't have a reformation to drag them forward in time like Christianity had.

            And when I look around, I see the same barbaric practices being brought here as fast as it suits them. Honor killings, stonings, demands for foot baths at airports, underswear bombing attempts over our cities.

            That's what I see.

      Well,I think both sides are right,Mr. hickey. The Muslim world has never been friendly to America and doesn't really see us as human beings. They see us as insects to be exterminated whenever they feel like it. President Obama blithely thinks that groups like the Muslim Brotherhood are groups we can deal with. They're not. They hate everyone and everything that isn't Muslim. He lives in a fantasy world where places like Iran can be dealt with through dialogue. Unfortunately,the Mullahs who rule Iran are impervious to dialogue. They only respect strength. President Obama has shown them weakness.
      The problem is that Obama doesn't seem to realize this,Mr. hickey. He just doesn't seem to think that people like the Muslim Brotherhood mean us ill. He sees America as the problem,not the fact that Muslims terrorists want to kill us not for what we've done,but who we are. We need leaders who live in the real world as it is,not as it exists in someone's private fantasies.

      • jfhickey

        I agree that there is increasing hostility between the ordinary uneducated Muslim man-in-the-street and the ordinary uneducated Christian man-in-the-street. And I think that unsophisticated hostility is very dangerous, because it does not really respond to rational argument. That is why I think it's important to head off, as best we can, the wave of anti-Muslim hysteria exemplified by this post and the comments to it (and recently by the incredibly ignorant attack by five members of the United States congress on Huma Abedin, a hard-working young Muslim women who works for the State Department). These kind of vicious, racist attacks are what create the atmosphere in which wars happen even where they could be better avoided. And un-necessary wars are tragically wasteful of young lives.

        I can't even begin to personally engage the ordinary Muslim man-in-the-street in Pakistan or Afghanistan, but President Obama was trying to do that when he spoke in Cairo, for which this post attacks him.

        Your conclusion that President Obama "blithely" thinks that "groups like the Muslim Brotherhood are groups we can deal with" seems to imply that you are privy to his personal state of mind. I doubt very much that you know him to think this "blithely." But in fact the Muslim Brotherhood must be dealt with, because they are the majority party that was elected to rule Egypt, which is critically important to the global political situation. Would you rather he declare war on them?

        You have no basis at all for your silly remark that President Obama "sees America as the problem." He clearly sees America as a potential force for good in the world.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          Obama has not been very subtle about his thinking.

          He has a clear basis for his comments.

          You seem to be pushing a very propaganda friendly version of islam. Too bad all the facts don't' support you.

          • jfhickey

            You're claiming President Obama has explicitly proclaimed that he "sees America as the problem"?

            I don't know what "propaganda-friendly" means. I oppose all state-enforced religion, including state-enforced Islam and state-enforced Christianity. I oppose even more the horrific violence even now being committed in the name of Islam in many places in the world. I am not trying to present some overall picture of a nice Islam. I would rather we lived in a world without organized religion at all. But we have 2.1 billion Muslims in the world, and the vast majority of them obviously do not have the evil agenda this post attributes to them.

            This post is advocating that we make all Muslims our enemies. This is such a stupid idea that it ought not have to be rebutted. But instead of agreeing that it is a stupid idea, you apparently want me to agree with it.

          • jfhickey

            I've responded to this, but I would like you to follow up on your statement that "Obama has not been very subtle about his thinking." What are you referring to?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I've responded to this already. But I would like to follow uup on your statement "I've responded to this…"

            You didn't have an answer. There is no reliable way to tell what muslims are pretending to be moderate and those that are. If you want to be the next Daniel Pearl that's your call. But many would rather just keep the poisoned contained where it is and to keep it from spreading.

            If it did spread, we could expect things like Christians being stoned in our own Dearborn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnJBW49afzg

          • jfhickey

            Whether I have answered to your satisfaction or not, we dealt with that question in another thread. Are you able to say what you mean by your statement that "Obama has not been very subtle about his thinking." This would be perhaps more to the point of the original post.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Yes, and his policies and speeches back that up.

          • Kufar Dawg

            If the "vast majority of them obviously do not have the evil agenda" then why do ALL muslime states persecute people of other faiths mullah boy? Don't most muslimes live in islamo-fascist states mullah boy? Why do muslimes tolerate the total religious apartheid that is Soddy Barbaria (where an infidel/kufar may be put to death for merely being in the city of Mecca)?

          • jfhickey

            I wouldn't discriminate against you for being illiterate, but you can't expect a respectful response if you address someone with disrespect.

    The Muslim president residing in the White Mosque is aided and abetted by Clinton. A devout Muslim has NO allegiance to the country he resides in. A devout Muslim's allegiance is NOT to the country he resides in. His allegiance is to ISLAM, and to global Islamic conquest of ALL nations. America and other countries are being destroyed by our own government.

    America and other Free World countries have never been in such great danger of losing both their freedom and safety.

    Brilliant article as usual from Mr. Greenfield – if only the mainly lying mainstream media will print such articles. Saudi/Qatar/Islam-bowing Jihadist/War Criminal/Dictator Barack Hussein Obama can be defeated one day – in the International Criminal Court for War Crimes & Crimes against Humanity; Amen to that. Obama now is trying to ensure Muslim Brotherhood (MB)-controlled Jihadist Turkey into the EU – through Germany. Unfortunately, due to the treacherous Islam-loving Left in Germany, especially in the highly jihadist-infiltrated Green, SPD & Socialist parties, it’s becoming a reality –silently. The German population are increasingly forced to accept Turkish-Islamic culture. language and nationalism (especially their flag) while other minority diverse culture, especially non-Islamic/non-Turkish are discriminated. This include in the labour force where there seems to be a hidden quota to prefer hiring labour with Turkish or Islamic background, in businesses, media and civil service, everywhere.. Islam is also being promoted even in Kindergartens and schools, whilst Judaism/Jews remain invisible except in Berlin, despite of the savage history of the Jewish Holocaust. So, Obama is not only ensuring his MB brothers are dominating and Arabicizing-Islamicizing, Saudi-style, the whole Mid-East and non-Arabic Islamic ruled countries/regions but also to open the road towards such conquest of Europe through Turkey – already happening in la-la land hard-Socialist Scandinavian countries especially Sweden & Norway!

  • Jay

    Obama is no different from the neocons who thought ousting dictators and bringing democracy would solve the problems in the Middle East. Bush overthrew Saddam and thought democracy there would make it a more US friendly country. All Obama is doing is the same neocon idea of overthrowing dictators and having elections would diffuse the tensions built up in the Middle East

    Personally I think that regardless of the outcome of the presidential election an independent, third party should be brought in to verify the election results and authenticate the ballots cast. If the US once was able to put a man on the moon, why can't it have transparency and accountability in its presidential election?

    I think I will abandon the attempt to have any constructive conversation on this thread. The one person I thought might be capable of it was "Roger," who describes himself as "A serious mind looking for serious minds to exchange and consider new ideas with."

    Good luck, all.

    I believe Obama will cite Marshal Laws prior to the election and put off the election by his order. I feel that the crash of the American economy just prior to the election will allow him to try it. This was organized by Soros. See what happens. I just can't believe people are that stupid! But they are.

    I see this too. Only thing is that he needs to keep doors of communication open and not become one of them. He is brave to stand up. But, he has weakened it seems and I hope isn't overtaken. He is surrounded by those that want to control for Human Blood. Not Oil. That just keeps the machines going. Human blood and slaves is what they want and need. All over the world. Yes…it goes to the very top. Where it all started a long time ago. When wars were created/instigated to control people with paralyzing fear and keep them that way so that more blood could be EASILY shed. Without question by the leaders and those they occupy/employ to maintain this order. This goes back to biblical times (especially before Jesus) when those that LOVE to shed blood figured out they could maintain people/innocents as cattle through fear, MANIPULATION and torture. Kingdoms all over the world continued to flourish and as time went on some were over taken by more aggressive force/kingdoms. That's why you would see the people as poor or impoverished. And, the rulers enthroned in luxury with their spoils. But, for the most part the descendants/ancestors live today.

  • Donna M.

    Trickled in different areas of the world now…especially the US. The US is a very special place. A place everyone wants to control. Everyone that is an "Elite" of course. Pretty soon there wont be any reason for plants and trees. Only Humans need those. Not them. If it doesn't have blood or can't be controlled then it's not needed. These Kingdoms and their recruitments are all over the world. And, the thirst for human blood. That is what's going on. Wake up. The good news is (I can say with confidence) that there are more of us right now than there are of them. :)
    The remaining 99% (more like 30% them-70% us, now). 70% to 99% OF US THAT WANT TO MAINTAIN PEACE, HARMONY AND BALANCE IN THIS WORLD WITH EACH OTHER than there are those that don't
    or that do not benefit from that arrangement. Like Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
