May you live in interesting times, is an ancient Chinese curse and it seems that for we who are alive today it is materialising. Japan is currently facing the biggest national crisis since WWII when America dropped two Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing tens of thousands of innocent people. Now, as I write, the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit Japan has caused the Atomic reactors at Fukushima massive damage and they are nearing meltdown, set to explode radioactive waste into the atmosphere potentially endangering not only the thirteen million residents of Tokyo but populations as far away as Europe and the USA. The Japanese Emperor Akihito has made an unprecedented television broadcast to his people pleading for calm and assuring them that all will eventually be well. This is a very serious matter indeed for His Imperial Majesty The Emperor of Japan is still considered by many of his people to be a divine being. This belief dates back to pre WWII times when the nation of Japan had what was known as State Shintoism as the only recognised religion. America, during its occupation of post war Japan dismantled the Shinto shrines and removed State Shintoism as the standard religion of Japan. Imagine that! Yet it still survives today as Shinto is the most widely practised religion of Japan along with Buddhism and, to a lesser extent, Christianity. Religious beliefs and prayers are not providing an answer to this terrible crisis and despite his supposed divinity Akihito appears to be powerless to halt the increasingly dangerous situation at Fukushima.
Some few weeks ago in Tunisia there started a series of public demonstrations against the dictatorial regime of President Ben Ali. The riots started when an unemployed graduate was stopped by the police from selling vegetables and fruit from his market stall giving him no means of supporting himself. In a desperate act of defiance this young man set himself on fire in the centre of Tunis. The result was an instant recognition by the people that they too were in a hopeless situation because of the fifty year dictatorship and they set about rioting. The predominant religion of Tunisia is Islam and the majority are of the Sunni belief group. The mosques are/were all controlled by the Tunisian government and the President himself appointed The Grand Mufti or religious head of Tunisia. So when the people began to riot they did so in direct opposition to the instructions of their religious leaders. Within days that dictatorship had fallen and the President, Ben Ali had been ousted.
Just days after the people of Tunisia had overthrown their leader the population of Egypt, no doubt having seen that all was possible, set about rioting, demanding freedoms that had been denied them under the strict dictatorial rule of Hosni Mubarak. The primary complaints of the Egyptian people were of low wages and police brutality, the usual repressive regulations and lack of hope. They set out to overthrow the rule of President Mubarak. Around 400 or so Egyptian rioters were shot dead but despite this they continued until at last Mubarak was forced from power after thirty years as a dictator. I personally watched Hosni Mubarak making his final televised plea to the people to just calm down and go back to work then all would be well again. The audacity of this speech near took my breath away as it was quite clear that Mubarak was completely out of touch with reality. Within just hours of making that broadcast he was gone. The predominant religion in Egypt is Islam and the vast majority of the population are of the Sunni belief group. Since the year 1980, when the Egyptian constitution was amended, the State Religion has been Islam. According to the constitution all legislation must agree with Islamic Law. So when the population of Egypt set out to overthrow the Government they did so almost in direct defiance of Islamic law.
Following the exit of Hosni Mubarak from the presidency of Egypt there came an even greater shock as the people of Libya began to demonstrate and attack the regime of Colonel Gaddafi. I was in Libya during September 1969 when Gaddafi staged a bloodless coup and ousted King Idris. Forty two years later he is still in control of Libya but as I write is facing what is effectively civil war as opposing factions seek to remove him from power. Things are now starting to look bleak for Gaddafi as the U.N. has authorised the imposition of a No Fly zone on Libya and the use of all necessary force to stop Gaddafi from killing all who oppose him. He meanwhile is broadcasting to the people of Libya telling them it will soon be time for them to rejoice and dance in the streets. I fear he may be wrong. As I write the U.S.A. and the U.K. are bombing the airports of Libya. The religion of Libya is 97% Muslim of the Sunni belief group and subject to the law of Islam.
These are indeed interesting times and very worrying too as the UK U.S.A and France are now bombing the Libyan military bases in what will be seen by many as an act of war. But what really is all this about? We are told by the UK Government that Gaddafi is brutalising his people, that the Egyptian President Mubarak was a wicked dictator. We were also told (wrongly) that Iraq’s former leader Sadam Hussain had weapons of mass destruction and was killing his own people, led by General ‘Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf we went to war and killed tens of thousands of Iraqi people. We were told that in Afghanistan the Taliban were training international terrorists, we went to war (the opium production increased) and still we are losing our brave soldiers lives over there. The concern I have is that following on from the overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya, which is a foregone conclusion, there will be yet another Islamic country that we in the Western world will get involved in. The last time Iran was controlled by Western powers was as a result of Operation Ajax that, in 1953, overthrew the democratically elected Government of Mosaddegh. This C.I.A. action was, in part, led by Major-General Schwarzkopf the father of ‘Stormin’ Norman. The reason Mosaddegh had to be replaced was, in simple terms, oil. His government had taken over the British Petroleum (BP) owned oil-fields and nationalised them. The religion of Iran is Muslim with 95% of the population belonging to the Shia Islamic belief group.
As a Spiritualist and practising professional psychic I do see future events through my clairvoyant gifts. What I am now seeing in my visions deeply concerns me and I only hope that I am wrong but I see an endless religious/oil war without frontiers. I am a clairvoyant not a political or revolutionary leader but I know, as you too should know, that we are heading towards hell in a basket unless we stop attacking and invading other countries. Turn on your television and have a look, you too will soon see what I am seeing as the Eton/Public School educated, hereditary Multi-Millionaires that control us cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.
