It’s official. The West has launched Crusades 2000.
If the first nine were not enough to satisfy the bloodthirsty and fanatical, the 10th Crusade will deliver death, mayhem and massacre on a global scale that only ruling presidents, prime ministers, chancellors, fellow politicians, the presstitute media and a sick-minded public could get off on.
Go back to 2001. Just days after 9/11, with the nation in shock and no hard evidence of who was responsible for attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, President George W. Bush declared, “This is a new kind of, a new kind of evil… and the American people are beginning to understand. This crusade, this war on terrorism, is going to take awhile.”
In response to Bush’s labeling his new War on Terror a crusade, Dominique Moisi, a political analyst with the French Institute for International Relations, warned, “This confusion between politics and religion… risks encouraging a clash of civilizations in a religious sense, which is very dangerous.”
“It’s what the terrorists use to recruit people — saying that Christians are on a crusade against Islam,” said Yvonne Haddad, a professor of the history of Islam at Georgetown University in Washington. “It’s as bad to their ears as it is when we hear ‘jihad.’”
In July 2006, commenting on a report of British intelligence breaking up an alleged terror plot on US airliners, Bush tightened the Crusade link with Muslims, saying the plot was “a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation.”
It was not the Iraq and Afghan wars he launched that murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people and destroyed cities, homes, businesses and the future of those that had lost everything. No, those seeking revenge were doing so simply to “destroy those of us who love our freedom” and because they were “Islamic fascists.”
The true cause and effects of war were spelled out in front of Congress by retired Maj. Gen. John R.S. Batiste, who commanded the Army’s 1st Infantry Division in Iraq. He said that if Washington had not invaded Iraq, it would not have “fueled Islamic fundamentalism across the globe, and not created more enemies than there were insurgents.”
What’s an ISIS?
No one knew what an ISIS was until two independent journalists who ventured into Middle Eastern war zones were beheaded in summer 2014. And while George Bush first played the Crusade card on the eve of the 9/11 anniversary in 2014, Nobel Peace Prize winner President Barack Obama officially launched it:
“My fellow Americans, tonight I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL…
“Thanks to our military and counterterrorism professionals, America is safer. Still, we continue to face a terrorist threat. We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm. That was the case before 9/11, and that remains true today. And that’s why we must remain vigilant as threats emerge. At this moment, the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa, where radical groups exploit grievances for their own gain. And one of those groups is ISIL — which calls itself the Islamic State…
“In a region that has known so much bloodshed, these terrorists are unique in their brutality. They execute captured prisoners. They kill children. They enslave, rape and force women into marriage…”
Bingo! ISIS. A dirty four-letter word with easy initials to remember and a religious “Islamic State” to hate.
Proving once again that cheap lines delivered with a straight face are all that’s needed to fool most of the people most of the time, el Presidente hit the right buzzwords to incite hate and rally the public: kill children and rape women.
Between games of golf, basketball, multi-million dollar extended vacations and constantly flying around America at taxpayer expense to raise money for the Democratic Party, Obama promised to “degrade,” “destroy” and “eradicate” the terrorist Islamic State “cancer” that posed a “growing threat… to the United States.”
In contrast to Washington’s murder of several million innocent people since the end of World War II (Korea, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, etc.) in its “vision” to export freedom and democracy, Obama condemned the Islamic State for having “no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”
Suddenly, 73 percent of Americans supported “bombs away” over anywhere as long as they were aimed at ISIS or anything and anybody that looked like an ISIS member.
Editorer’s note: Only Gerald Celente and the Trends Research Institute identified, named and predicted Crusades 2000 and its consequences nearly a decade before George Bush spoke the word: First, in the 1993 fall Trends Journal, and again in Trends 2000 (Warner Books, 1997):
“The seeds of the new Crusades have been sown in areas of Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia. Throughout the Muslim world, devout masses, politically repressed and impoverished, were rising up against their endemically corrupt and inefficient secular governments with their pro-Western alliances. Imperialism, directly or indirectly, took the blame for the poverty, the lack of opportunity, and the social and moral decay.
“Disenfranchised, desperate, politically powerless, Muslims in many countries looked to charismatic clerics to change their destiny.” TJ
