UNITED NATIONS (AP)(1)
- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez denounced the U.S.-led war in Iraq on Thursday and told world leaders they should consider moving the U.N. headquarters out of the United States because of it.
The leftist leader said the fact that the war was fought without U.N. authorization showed that Washington has no respect for the world body.
"There were never weapons of mass destruction but Iraq was bombed, and over U.N. objections, (it was) occupied and continues being occupied," said Chavez, who appeared to step up his frequent criticism of U.S. policies in his speech to the General Assembly at a U.N. summit.
"That's why we propose to this assembly that the United Nations leave this country, which is not respectful of the very resolutions of this assembly," he said.
Chavez said U.N. headquarters should be moved from New York to an international city "outside the sovereignty of any state," and noted that some have suggested Jerusalem.
Hugo Chavez is not the only world leader calling for the UN to move to Jerusalem with Jerusalem becoming a world capital.
Shimon Peres has also made statements(2) to this effect:
Israeli opposition leader Shimon Peres, a former Israeli prime minister, is proposing Jerusalem be declared the capital of the world as a way of getting around competing Israeli and Arab claims to the city.
According to his spokesman, Yoram Dori, the dovish leader of Israel's opposition Labor Party suggested putting the important religious shrines in Jerusalem under United Nations stewardship. He said the holy sites in Jerusalem's walled Old City could be declared a "world capital."
The Maariv daily said Peres raised the idea Monday with visiting Russian officials.
The "world capital" idea appeared to be largely symbolic. According to Maariv, Peres proposed that the U.N. secretary-general be declared mayor, in which capacity he would appoint Jewish and Arab deputy mayors to administer the two sides' intertwined neighborhoods. Kofi Annan is the current secretary-general of the U.N.
The United Nations has in the past taken a position on Jerusalem, one of the most intractable issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: Under a 1947 General Assembly resolution partitioning British mandatory Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, the city was to be internationalized, belonging to neither side.
During the 1948-49 war that followed Israel's creation, Israel seized the western part of the city and Jordan the eastern side, including the walled Old City with its Christian, Jewish and Muslim holy sites. In the 1967 Mideast war, Israel recaptured east Jerusalem along with the West Bank and Gaza.
Peres' 1996 election loss to Benjamin Netanyahu is partly attributed to Netanyahu's politically effective charge that Peres would divide Jerusalem.
The process of "internationalizing" the city by the UN as proposed in 1947 did not go away with the Israeli capture of West Jerusalem in 1948-49, and the Eastern part of the city in 1967.
Indeed in Haaretz(3) we read:
In September 1981,UNESCO's World Heritage Center accepted the Kingdom of Jordan's request to list the Old City and its walls in the list of sites of worldwide cultural heritage, even though Jordan wasn't in control of the city by then. During the debate on Jordan's request, the commission refused to hear the Israeli side. In December 1982, at Jordan's request, Jerusalem was listed as an endangered cultural heritage site, because of growing urbanization in the Old City causing grave damage.
In the 1995 list of world cultural heritage sites, Jerusalem was no longer listed as Jordanian. Instead, Jerusalem was listed as an independent entity, without a state.
This paves the way for the UN dream of internationalizing Jerusalem as originally intended in 1947.
On October 1999, Israel joined the UNESCO treaty for the protection of world cultural heritage, giving it a list of 23 such sites in Israel. The list included Jerusalem, but without any details.
Could this designation by a UN agency(UNESCO) as an "independent entity without a state" without any details being provided and the above statements by world political leaders be one of the steps in preparing the world to accept Jerusalem as the new UN controlled world capital?
What is the purpose and significance of designating Jerusalem as a world cultural heritage site?
From sovereignty.net we learn:(4)
...the World Heritage Operational Guidelines states, "The cultural heritage and the natural heritage are among the priceless and irreplaceable possessions, not only of each nation, but of mankind as a whole. The loss, through deterioration or disappearance, of any of these most prized possessions constitutes an impoverishment of the heritage of all the peoples in the world. Parts of that heritage, because of their exceptional qualities, can be considered to be of outstanding universal value and as such worthy of special protection against the dangers which increasingly threaten them." The Convention is designed to help protect these unique places.
These are lofty and noble goals that most individuals could support. As with all contentious issues, however, the devil is in the details. And there are a lot of mandates in these various documents that have caused alarm in a rapidly growing number of people -- especially when signs are erected at the entrances of various cultural landmarks declaring them to be a World Heritage Site.
The problem with these programs isn't in their lofty and noble goals. The problem is in their mandates and implementation and how they link to other treaties and agreements, which if accepted by the Congress [Knesset], could lead to direct loss of sovereignty. When an international treaty or agreement is signed, the host country agrees to the terms and conditions of the agreements, and by default has given up a portion of its' national sovereignty in order to meet those terms and conditions. And while the agreements do not specifically state that the United Nations has sovereignty, they do permit "partnerships" and other forms of cooperation between the U.S [Israel] and the UN.
In short these partnerships are designed as an end-run to circumvent the host countries' laws to achieve UN goals with regard to Jerusalem's status.
What are these goals?
One must look to the House of Theosophy and the Masonic Lodge for the answers.
From Cutting Edge Ministries we learn that the House of Theosophy "has always been such a major player in the New World Order Planning" regarding Jerusalem.
Bill lambert, director of the New England House of Theosophy spent three years in Israel as a member of the planning project known as the New Jerusalem Covenant Project.
This project involves planning the international control over Jerusalem's three main religious areas including the holy places of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
Sometime between 1985 and 2010,.....Moslem and Jewish areas in Jerusalem will be combined with Christian to create the New Jerusalem Covenant.(5)
At the proper moment in history, the Pope will visit the combined Jewish/Christian/Moslem sector of Jerusalem to announce that all religions should be combined into one. This action will then finally break the Middle East logjam.
How will this be possible?
One only needs to realize Israels'(Sharons') about-face on moving Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip to realize how this is possible. Israeli control over Jerusalem will be presented as a national pride issue that can be surrendered as was the Gaza strip if it will bring peace.
Once Israel relinquishes complete control of Jerusalem to the UN "then, and only then, will it be possible to build a combination Temple/church/Mosque (Shrine of the Prophets) in Jerusalem."
Then the Masonic dream of building The Temple in Jerusalem will be realized and David Ben-Gurion's vision will have come to fruition.
This was the vision of David Ben-Gurion, former Prime Minister of Israel as he expressed to the world on January 16, 1962 in Look magazine:(6)
"The image of the world ..........as traced in my imagination: The cold war will be a thing of the past. Internal pressure of the constantly growing intelligentsia in Russia for more freedom and the pressure of the masses for raising their living standards may lead to a gradual democratization of the Soviet Union. On the other hand, the increasing influence of the workers and the farmers, and the raising political importance of men of science, may transform the United States into a welfare state with a planned economy. Western and Eastern Europe will become a federation of autonomous states having a Socialist and democratic regime. With the exception of the USSR as a federated Eurasian state, all other continents will become united in a world alliance at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished, and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, a United Nations(a truly United Nations) will build a Shrine of the Prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah.(Italics and emphasis mine except for the word united).
The 1947 United Nations plan to return Jerusalem to international control is alive and well and working toward completion.
"In the last days the mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as chief among the mountains, it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, 'Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.' The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war any more. Isaiah 2:2,3,4.
The vision of David Ben-Gurion is not the vision of Jesus Christ given through the prophet Isaiah as quoted above, but the vision of man; the vision of a human plan, created in cooperation with supernatural 'Guiding Spirits'[Alice Bailey's Hierarchy] to establish an earthly counterfeit to God's millenial reign at the end of the age.
"The Spirit of Peace is hovering close to humanity, seeking opportunity to make His Presence felt. The Spirit of Peace is not an abstract concept but a potent Indivdual, wielding forces hitherto unfamiliar to our planet. Great Forces are awaiting the hour when They can function as the Liberators and the Deliverers of mankind. But the door to Their entrance must be opened by humanity itself and it will be opened by a united act of the will, expressed through some formula of words and expressed in sound."["The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", p. 173; Emphasis added](7)
As paraphrased by Bill Lambert:
"Energies want to flow from the Hierarchy to earth to produce the physical Manifestation of the Christ; but such flow can only occur when humanity raises its collective consciousness to be properly awakened receptors."(Page 617-618, Externalisation of the Hierarchy, paraphrased by Mr. Lambert.(Emphasis and italics in original)
In other words when occult power through human 'adepts'(properly awakened receptors) has grown to a critical threshold throughout the world the 'Guiding Spirits' (demonic host) will indwell a man posing as the Christ(Lord Maitreya, the antichrist) returning to start Christ's millenial reign.
He will be a man of peace but will rule through intrigue and from all outward appearances will portray a devout Jew or Christian until he presents himself to the world as the "Christ" when he is indwelt by Satan himself.
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was with you, I told you these things?" 2 Thessalonians 2:3-5 KJV.
"And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 KJV.
