RACE, RELIGION AND WORLD PEACE 

 

Moeen Yaseen   Managing Director  Global Vision 2000

 

Uniting for Peace conference London  December 3 2013 

 

Mr.Chairman, Friends and Ladies and Gentlemen thank you for the invitation and before I speak let us all ponder and put ourselves in the shoes of all the victims globally as we are lucky to be spared their fate in a city like London.  At the centre of my speech today are the following 2 quotations; one in Latin and one in Arabic and their juxtaposition.

 

Arabic   Aoozu Billahi Min ash-Shaytan Nir Rajim  :I seek refuge from Satan( and Satanic forces) 

 

Latin     Novus Ordo Secolorum  :                              New World Order(Secular)

 

The theme today is topical as we are living at a time of a global financial crisis and a buildup to WW3 which is ironic as 2014 will be a celebration of WW1.  We are facing no less than a civilizational collapse since 2007-8  caused by the bankers and a world bankers government who have declared war on humanity. It is worth paying attention to the significance of the times we are living in. The Islamic philosophy of history is of a creator creating us to know and worship him and all creation is designed as Unity in diversity in this Multiverse to know each other as opposed to despise each other and be disunited in strife and war. In 2000 at the UN Khatami announced the Dialogue as opposed to the Clash of civilisations but this was followed by 9/11 and the Global War OF terror(GWOT)  which erupted at the start of the millennium and under whose shadow we are all living. To understand these times Orwells maxim is relevant,  “ At a time of universal deceit speaking the truth becomes a revolutionary act”.

 

We have also been warned that we are living in Akhir az Zaman which are End times eschatologically speaking in which the Dajjal will arise which is the age of liars and the Great Liar.  I believe we are living in this era. So we need to contextualise world history not just from an Eurocentric perspective and from a historiographical narrative which takes white is right and might is right for granted. The following time line sheds an alternative scenario:-

 

Phase 1  Parirouz   Unity of subject and object( as in the Garden of Eden)

Phase 2  Dirpuz      State of Westoxication from the Greeks to the Middle Ages

Phase 3  Emroz      Taghoot Post Rennaisance and Enlightenment Man

Phase 4  Farda       Time of Entezar(Waiting)

Phase 5  Pasfarda  Revolution of the Saints

 

Therefore what I am arguing is that there are 2 wrong assumptions underpinning  the rise and fall of civilisations. Post WW2 the eras of decolonisation and post colonisation has seen national self determination and sovereignty of nation states. However, this has been partial especially in the MENA region. As these states have been hamstrung in  a prisonplanet with boundaries set by the Sykes-Picot and Durand lines as well as structures established such as the UN, World Bank, IMF, the Imperial Dollar and NATO.  This shackles elites and nations to debt slavery , subservience to the New World Order by the Masters of the Universe. Prisonplanet is thus locked into place with 1694, 1913, 1944 and 1971. So we have the unfinished business of the liberation of humanity upon us.

The Global financial usurious system continues it’s rampage with globalisation in which various  Multi National Corporations(MNCs) trample sovereignty. The unipolar New World Order set in 1990-91 to fill in the vacuum of the cold war collapse in 1989. The official narrative since 9/11 and 2001 can not be accepted as gospel truth as Seymour Hersh advocates scepticism of it. The Global financial crisis of 2007-8 with the crash, bailouts, QE and austerity has broken down social cohesion and led to the rise of nationalisms.

 

The Green Threat has replaced the Red Threat and the Global War OF Terror( GWOT) has meshed with the transmutation of the Arab Spring which has led to the demonization of as well as a witch hunt of Islam and Muslims in North America and Europe. The rise of previously suppressed Islamic parties has been given the green light and as they are perceived to be Islam orientated and pro-Palestinian. The Zionism will portray certain Muslim States as a terror to the world and Israel positioned as a World Saviour against this global menace. What we are seeing is the deliberate destabilisation of the region and rise of sectarian wars. The outlook is grim given this impasse.

 

RESOLUTION

 

  1. The root of this problem is the global private banking cartel practising fractional reserve banking based on fiat currencies and compound usury.

  2. At the World Islamic Economic Forum  held in 2013 in London Prince Charles, Prime Minister  David Cameron and the Mayor of London Boris Johnson were unanimous that Islamic finance and it’s moral political economy was the lynchpin to alternative finance and confirms the work of Global Vision 2000 that this is the basis of the Universal Paradigm shift.  If London wants to be a global centre of Islamic finance  the UK can not have it both ways and it must cease it’s droning, bombing, invading of the Muslim world. There is a need for a new deal and settlement

  3.  The Anglo-American Zionist alliance needs to be neutralised as it will lead to WW3.

  4. Jerusalem and it’s internalisation is the key to world peace.
