US Sublets Horn of Africa to Germany

Prophecy being fulfilled as Germany places itself in a position to take control of Africa through Ethiopia.  While the United States is busy in Afghanistan, fomenting strife in Syria and preparing a revolution in Iran as well as facing problems in Korea and Latin America; they have an Ally in Germany who is helping out their overextended friend and quietly taking control of Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa.

Ethiopia under German tutelage is becoming the major power in East Africa and Ethiopian forces are slowly taking control of Somalia.  This is a fulfillment of scripture which states that in the end time Babylon [the coming New Europe will control Ethiopia and Libya as well as Egypt and occupying the Jewish State of Israel.

Dan 11:40   And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [mainly Israel and Egypt] push at [provoke]  him: and the king of the north [the New Europe; king of the North: spiritually Babylon] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

41 He shall enter also into the glorious [Palestine, the present Jewish State] land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.  [They shall be allied with the new Europe, Psalm 83]

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

When a falling out between the United States and the New Europe takes place over the Israeli Settlement Movements sabotage of the coming peace deal;  the United States will collapse due to cyber and military attack and massive monetary collapse. the New Europe will then begin to dominate the western world in place of the American’s for the next couple of years.

Then in the third year, the New Europe will confront the Asian nations of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in another major conflict which will result in the coming of Messiah around a year or two  later.

Dan 11:44   But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end [by Christ Dan 2], and none shall help him.

It is important to understand that through Ethiopia and the African Union, the New Europe will control the continent of Africa, and one of the fruits of the collapsing United States, will be a requirement that the American forces in Africa, Africom work under the command of the New Europe.

In short the New Europe now rising, will inherit and gain control of all of Africa and its vast resources, from the collapsing United States.

Power Policy Priorities (II)   2013/03/18

BERLIN/ADDIS ABABA

In Ethiopia

Yesterday, 17 March, German President Joachim Gauck left for a visit of several days to Ethiopia. From yesterday evening, talks were scheduled with Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, today, a meeting with President Girma Wolde-Giorgis is on the agenda. Subsequent meetings with the African Union, whose headquarters are located in Addis Ababa, as well as talks with representatives of non-governmental organizations and religious communities are also on his schedule. Gauck will spend several days in Ethiopia. He is expected back in Berlin on Wednesday evening.

The Inner Ruling Circle

The timing of this visit is not of insignificance. Long-term Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, who had been the main architect of Ethiopian government policy, died last summer. Hailemariam Desalegn was able to come to power, in the subsequent restructuring of the power apparatus in Addis Ababa.

Back in the fall of 2012, Berlin insisted on receiving more precise information on the development of the choice of Mele’s successor. In October, Sebhat Nega, a member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the predominating party in Addis, came to Berlin for talks.

Sebhat is a member of the inner ruling circle in Addis. He is accused of complicity in human rights violations, for example, he is said to have been one of those responsible for repressive measures, that smashed the opposition, in the aftermath of the 2005 elections.[1]

Therefore, Ethiopian human rights activists and members of the opposition protested, when Sebhat addressed the German parliament last October. Officially, he holds the position of Chair of the Ethiopian International Institute for Peace and Development (EIIPD), designated by the SPD-affiliated Friedrich Ebert Foundation as one of its cooperation partners in Addis Ababa.

German president Gauck’s current consultations are a continuation of the Berlin talks on the restructuring of the Ethiopian regime.  He is restructuring and setting up the new regime in Addis Ababa, in accordance with German specifications

Leading Power at the Horn of Africa

Developments in Addis Ababa are of great importance to Berlin, because Ethiopia, due to its geostrategic situation, is among Germany’s most important allies in Africa.

Ethiopia can be considered a leading power in the far east of Africa. It has the largest population and the strongest military.

For years, the Ethiopian military has been repeatedly intervening in Somalia, where it is seeking to put pro-European forces into power.

Under Meles, Addis had also sent troops into Sudan, to help impose western concepts of order. (german-foreign-policy.com reported.[2]) Not least of all, in Europe and the USA, this majority Coptic Christian country is seen as a bulwark against Islamist Extremism.

From the German perspective, this country is of such great significance, because it would be disastrous, if anti-western Islamists extremists could wrest control over the Horn of Africa and thereby, over the maritime routes between Europe and the Middle East and eastern Asia.

This is why, for years, the German government has been working so closely with Addis Ababa, which includes extensive finances in development aid, as well as Bundeswehr support for the Ethiopian armed forces.[3]

No Fig Leaf

Following Meles’ death last summer, human rights organizations briefly nourished hopes that, the restructuring of the power in Addis could bring improvements in the human rights situation and relief for the opposition. However, these hopes were dashed rather soon.

Therefore, last November, the German Green Party-affiliated Heinrich Böll Foundation announced it was closing its Addis branch office. They did not want to serve as a fig leaf for the regime and its repression.

Currently the Ethiopian Human Rights Committee points out that Ethiopia, the country “with the highest number of journalists, who have fled,” is not losing its media representatives for no reason. Many journalists are currently in Ethiopian jails.

At the beginning of the year, Human Rights Watch drew attention to the case of incarcerated journalist Eskinder Nega. Eskinder had been arrested in the aftermath of the 2005 elections and the ensuing repression of mass protests. He was released two years later, placed under constant surveillance and forbidden to publish. He was again arrested in 2011, and sentenced – under Ethiopia’s anti-terrorism laws – to 18 years, a sentence, human rights organizations find simply absurd.[4]

Spying On

According to the most recent reports, German technology is also instrumental in the repression of the opposition. It is reported that security experts in an analysis for the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab discovered a Trojan by the name “FinSpy,” which had been introduced into Ethiopia. It had been developed by the German company, Gamma International.

A mouse click on a photo activates this Trojan, which then makes a protocol of all activities of the computer’s user. Skype communications can be recorded, microphones, transformed into listening devices. The transcript is then sent to an the Ethiopian state telecommunications provider.

The decoy photos, used to activate the virus depict “Ginbot 7” opposition activists. “This is an indication that the infection is a politically motivated targeting,” says a security expert.[5] Members of the opposition in Bahrain have also been spied on in this way – thanks also to German technology.[6]

The EU interferes in Countries Internal Politics

Emerging Leaders   2013/03/06

BRUSSELS   (Own report) – The EU has created a new foundation to promote subversive forces in countries neighboring the EU. This institution, known as the “European Endowment for Democracy” (EED), disposes of a budget of millions of Euros and is destined to support oppositional circles in countries bordering the EU to the east and south.

Officially, its purpose is to “promote democracy,” however [like the American National Endowment for Democracy] German government advisors are demanding that, if a rapid overthrow is the objective, the foundation should even risk promoting forces “that will later turn out to be non-democrats.”

The EED’s model is the US foundation “National Endowment for Democracy” (NED), through which, according to voices in Washington, the former subversive activities of the CIA have been continued publicly, by using the NED to finance dissent in other nations, including the war against Assad in Syria.

Two German European parliamentarians hold central posts in the EED. The executive director, a Polish diplomat, announced that the EED would be active in its targeted regions, if necessary, against the law.

Pro-Western, Dissident

The EED was created on the 2010 initiative of the Polish Foreign Minister, Radoslaw Sikorski.

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko, who had stubbornly refused to subordinate his country to the concept of German-European policy, had won the elections in December 2010.

Though German diplomats, for example, were saying off the record, that, in fact, Lukashenko had a clear majority of the population in his favor, Berlin and the West continued their campaign for his overthrow. For years, Poland has played a prominent role, therefore Sikorski sought to lead efforts to overthrow the Belarus government.

To support the pro-western Belarus opposition and other pro-western forces in that EU-neighboring country, he proposed the creation of an organization that can flexibly operate. In February 2011, the Polish Presidency of the EU Council made the official proposal in Brussels. EU nations – also under the impact of upheavals in the Arab world – approved the creation of the EED in December 2011.[1] January 9, 2013, its creation was officially consummated.

Party Promotion

According to its statutes, the EED aims at supporting “pro-democratic tendencies and other pro-democratic actors,” social movements and non-government organizations, independent media and above all “emerging leaders.”[2]

Finances are among its primary means. The initial EED budget has been set at 14 million Euros. The foundation also aims at developing its own on-site activities, not more explicitly described.

Like America’s NED, the EED’s concrete support for political parties is not precluded – a flagrant interference in the democratic electoral process of foreign nations.

Two German European parliamentarians hold decisive positions in the organization’s complicated organigram. Elmar Brok (CDU) directs the Board of Governors, which embeds the EU member countries and European Parliament and Alexander Graf Lambsdorff (FDP) has been delegated to the seven-member Executive Committee. Jerzy Pomianowski, former State Secretary in Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is founding director of operations.

Overt, rather than Covert Action

As Pomianowski declared, the EED was conceived along the lines of the “National Endowment for Democracy” (NED). NED’s activity in Eastern Europe “before and after the fall of communism” serves as model.[3]

At the beginning of the 1990s, the US mainstream press had already clearly assessed the situation, reporting that in the late 1980s, National Endowment for Democracy was doing “openly, what had once been unspeakably covert” and the job of the CIA – “dispensing money to anti-communist forces behind the Iron Curtain.”[4]

NED financed civic forums, journals and video centers, and the means flowed openly to partisans of the cause in the name of civil society and democracy. “The CIA’s old concept of covert action,” which has gotten the agency “into such trouble during the past 40 years,” may be “obsolete.” Nowadays, “sensible activities to support America’s friends abroad are probably best done openly.” That includes “political-support operations for pro-democracy [read NED pro American, or EED pro German; NOT necessarily pro democracy]  activists,” which may “be best left to the new network of overt operators.”

The Party-Affiliated Foundations

The fact that Germany has been active in this field for a long time – with its party-affiliated foundations and their foreign operations – had initially led to friction in the EED. German foundations sensed competition developing. They complained of wasteful parallel structures.

Now, word is out that things can be coordinated, which can be facilitated by the presence of the two German European parliamentarians in EED leadership bodies. The German controlled EU foundation is turning its attention, toward the eastern and southern EU bordering countries and Ethiopia, and is concerned mainly with  Belarus, Ethiopia, Syria and Ukraine.[5]

The example of the German party-affiliated foundations is, however, an indication that support for opposition forces in neighboring countries, does not have to be limited to democratic forces.

Some German foundations, which consider their own dedication to democracy as unquestionable, have, time and again, promoted putschists – for example, in Thailand [6], in Honduras [7], or in Paraguay [8].

Even Against the Law

Statements of the founding director, as well as those by German government advisors, indicate that the EED’s will to overthrow governments, like that of the American NED, could supersede that of applying rules of law and democracy.

Support for opposition groups, can be furnished, in principle, also where it is perceived as an inimical act, declared Jerzy Pomianowski recently in a radio interview. The foundation “perhaps may not have the formal right to be active everywhere,” he announced to the press, “but we can do it.”[9]

Non-Democrats

Last year, the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) shed light on the types of groups the EED will seek to promote. According to the SWP, experience shows that often it is only possible over time to discern, if “behind the veil of democratic rhetoric,” the opposition groups “also harbor the corresponding values and orientation.” If a rapid overthrow is the objective, one will, “inevitably promote forces, that will later turn out to be non-democrats.” This risk must be taken, according to SWP. The EED should “consciously and pro-actively” also promote those groups, “whose development is unpredictable.”[10]
