This story appeared on Jan 22, but I thought it was important enough to include this week to alert people to some possible high octane speculations. It seems that the Vatican was either alerted by Italian security and intelligence about a potential "Islamic" attack against the city-state, or the Pope himself, or that it learned of such a possibility through its own intelligence, or both:
What is interesting here are these comments:
"'On the horizon we see shadows and dangers which worry humanity,' he said in the wake of an increase in security around the Vatican amid fears Islamic State extremists may be plotting to attack the head of the Roman Catholic Church.
"'As Christians we are called not to lose heart or be discouraged,' Francis said in a new year s message to the police.
"Security was tightened in Saint Peter s Square in September after intelligence services intercepted a possible plan to attack the Vatican.
"Iraq's ambassador to the Holy See, Habib Al Sadr, at the time warned that "what has been declared by the self-declared Islamic State is clear. They want to kill the Pope. The threats against the Pope are credible."
"Some worry Francis has made himself a target by speaking out against the Islamic State group and having the Holy See voice support for US air strikes in Iraq."(Emphases added)
Here comes the high octane speculation. There is present within the alternative research community - and even to a certain extent within the mainstream media now - two memes that appear, in this context, to have been deliberately promoted: one is that the goal of the current psychopaths in charge of "the West" is to foster a "clash of civilizations" that will destroy both the Islamic world, and in some versions, the Orthodox world (i.e., Russia), in some sort of "neo-crusade." A strike against a French newspaper would be one thing, and one can recall the media-driven pseudo-patriotism that was drummed up in the aftermath of 9/11...
... now imagine the media-hsyteria that could be drummed up if there were a terrorist attack on the Pope or the Vatican. Such scenarios recall the assassination attempt on Pope John-Paul II by Mehmet Ali Agca, who, as it turned out, had some very weird connections to Turkish neo-Nazi outfits, which in their turn had their own murky connections to the various NATO "Gladio" units. Why do I bring this up?
Because as most readers of my books will already know, the world of post-war Nazism and radical Islamicism are inextricably connected in a tapestry of relationships that included(or includes) everything from the Muslim Brotherhood to Nazis like Reinhard Gehlen and his BND, and ultimately the CIA. So in other words, the mere mention of ISIS in the context of potential threats against the Vatican and/or the Pope himself raise my suspicion meter about false flags into the red zone. Which brings use to that second meme I mentioned above, and that meme is the apparent connection of ISIS to western intelligence. Yesterday's Syrian rebels and freedom fighters are today's radical Islamicist terrorists.
My fear here is that even if such an attack on either the Pope or the Vatican was a false flag(and again, my suspicion meter is in the red zone for the simple reason that such an attack by Islam would simply be an irrationality... most Muslims are aware that this would be suicidal in the extreme as it would demand a response, not to mention the fact that most Muslims would not even countenance such an act)... even if all this were demonstrably a false flag as I strongly suspect it looks to be, it would be difficult in the extreme to quell demands for some sort of "response." And one can hear the compliant media lap-poodles on Faux News, SeeBS, the BBC, and other outlets, even now, were such an unthinkable thing to occur, calling for an immediate and "appropriate level of response" in return. At this level, what is "the appropriate level", for consider the symbolism of the Vatican, the centrality of the religion it represents in the formation of our culture and institutions that we take largely for granted. What is the "appropriate level" of response here in the Islamic world?
Once you've thought about that, then it's easy to see the level to which the psychopaths have sunk...
See you on the flip side...
