Soros Back in the News

Yet again. It seems that almost every day Soros is in the news, and its always something that a Bible loving Christian would be opposed to - or for that matter, anyone who embraces freedom would also be opposed to the actions of Mr Soros. Today is no exception:

Libya bombing an attempt to create "New World Order"?

The author of a military doctrine used by the Obama administration to justify the recent airstrikes targeting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya recently advocated for a "global rebalancing" and "international redistribution" to create a "New World Order."

The author, Ramesh Thakur, is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, which is in partnership with an economic institute founded by philanthropist billionaire George Soros. Thakur is also closely tied with other Soros-funded initiatives.

WND was first to report last week that Soros is also a primary funder and key proponent of the global organization that promotes the military doctrine "Responsibility to Protect," cited by the White House as allowing the use of force to attack Gadhafi's forces.

Mr Soros' tentacles reach very wide and deep - in fact it seems that everywhere you turn, you find a radical organization that is funded by Soros. Additionally, this new doctrine "Responsibility to Protect" is being cited as the cornerstone of our policy right now.

One HAS to wonder, with Mr Soros hatred of Israel, how long before this "doctrine" is used as an excuse to send in military troops against Israel in the efforts to "save" the "Palestinians"? Would this idea really seem like a stretch?

The joint U.S. and international air strikes targeting Libya are widely regarded as a test of Responsibility to Protect – a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of "war crimes," "genocide," "crimes against humanity" or "ethnic cleansing."

If you look at the terms in quotations above, you can quickly realize that all of these terms have been used against Israel.

The term "war crimes" has at times been indiscriminately used by various U.N.-backed international bodies, including the International Criminal Court, or ICC, which applied it to Israeli anti-terror operations in the Gaza Strip. There has been fear the ICC could be used to prosecute U.S. troops.

Now WND has learned that Thakur, one of the principal authors of and original commissioners of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine," argued recently for a global realignment.

In a piece last March in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, "Toward a new world order," Thakur wrote, "Westerners must change lifestyles and support international redistribution."

Thakur's International Governance Innovation Centre is in partnership with the Institute for New Economic Thinking, or INET, for which Soros is a founding sponsor.

The philanthropist agreed to provides $25 million over five years to support INET activities.

Remember INET from last week's headlines? This reveals the efforts by Soros to create "A global economic restructuring" according to his views. That's a very scary idea.

The rabbit hole gets even deeper:

Soros' Open Society Institute is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. Government sponsors include Australia, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Rwanda and the U.K.

Board members of the group include former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, former Ireland President Mary Robinson and South African activist Desmond Tutu. Robinson and Tutu have recently made solidarity visits to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip as members of a group called The Elders, which includes former President Jimmy Carter.

Annan once famously stated, "State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined – not least by the forces of globalization and international co-operation. States are ... instruments at the service of their peoples and not vice versa."

And doesn't everything (these days) always come back to the epicenter?

Soros is on the executive board of the International Crisis Group, a "crisis management organization" for which Evans serves as president-emeritus.

WND previously reported how the group has been petitioning for the U.S. to normalize ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, the main opposition in Egypt, where longtime U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was recently toppled.

...the crisis group has also petitioned for the Algerian government to cease "excessive" military activities against al-Qaida-linked groups and to allow organizations seeking to create an Islamic state to participate in the Algerian government.

Soros' own Open Society Institute has funded opposition groups across the Middle East and North Africa, including organizations involved in the current chaos.

Soros is someone to watch closely. It could be, in a prophetic sense, that Soros ultimate game is to use these new policies as a method to go after Israel - any such action would be completely consistent with everything he has said and done to this point. As stated before, it seems obvious that Mr Soros will have a big role to play in end times prophecy. We shall see.

And in a somewhat related article, we see this:

Purging God From America 'by design'?

A leading Christian historian told WND he believes President Obama is engaged in a pattern of "willfully, deliberately" repudiating America's Christian heritage.

As WND reported, Obama has been caught numerous times – seven, by WND columnist Chuck Norris' count – omitting the phrase "endowed by their Creator" when quoting the Declaration of Independence and misquoting the national motto "In God We Trust" in official White House communication.

"The first time or two I thought, 'Well, he's flustered, he wasn't thinking.' But seven times? There's no way. Especially when he was called on it," Barton said. "Congressmen sent him a letter challenging him on it. There's no way it's matter of ignorance or slip or excuse at that point. I believe it's by design and by intent.

Barton, head of Wallbuilders, an organization dedicated to presenting America's moral, religious and constitutional foundations, said unlike previous presidents – notably Founders like Washington and Adams – who publicly proclaimed God's hand in America, Obama has been going out of his way to not acknowledge the Almighty.

Any examples of this? Absolutely:

"You remember when he spoke at Georgetown, he had them cover the Christian symbols [behind him on the stage]?" Barton asked. "There's a pattern. When he misstates the national motto, it's not just the Declaration omission of 'their Creator.' When he became president, one of the first things that happened on the White House website was they took off the faith-based office

The Declaration of Independence states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

But when Obama omits "by their Creator," Barton explained, it reflects a fundamental shift in political thought, away from the Founders' vision of a government protecting God-given rights toward a nation creating government-given rights.

"These omissions and inaccuracies are a part of a larger pattern we are seeing with the president where he is inaccurately reflecting America and undercutting important parts of our nation's history," said Forbes. "Trust in God is embedded in the fabric of society and history in the United States.

"If we allow these threads to be pulled, we will begin to unravel the very freedoms that birthed America," he said.

Scott, I heard this quote from a
local pastor, Jim Custor, who has a passion for Biblical prophecy. "God laid down a timeline through His Word, and put His personal integrity on it" Everything in this world, is continuing to fall into place and is it's so amazingly
exciting to see God's Word validate
it. We all thought we would be Home
with the Lord before this, but
to see the events even more precisely line up with Scripture,
makes us just want to praise Him even more! Things are lining up even MORE exact!I just stand in awe of Him. What a blessing to know we can trust Him and His Word 100%!

i can handle the natural disasters, the wars, the upcoming dollar crash but this removal of God from our government breaks my heart. woe to our country...God is not mocked! i can see prayer, fasting and repentence in this nation are needed now! unfortunately, i dont see that coming...well maybe when some of these idols are removed, people might come around. what do you think Scott? is their any hope for us short of his glorious return?

My skin went cold over a week ago as I heard Samantha Power's roots with Soros, her background, and the "Obligation to Protect" doctrine.

The use of Libya for a precedent seemed obvious. The ultimate target is, as you said, Israel. Mrs. Powers admitted that the ultimate use of this doctrine would require a lot of backbone because it would ultimately involve sacrifice of a huge voting block with immense resources.

Now, who could that be.

Are Muslims a huge voting block? Do they contribute huge amounts to political candidates?

Nope, this was referring to the Jew and the Jew only. We are turning into Israel's worst Judas imaginable.

anon...I in no way speak for Scott, he may have a completly different take than me but I personally think the answer is no.
Scott, you seem convinced (and you may be right) that soros may put anti-christ into power

Linda - good comments. I really like what your pastor said, and I agree. Also, don't forget, Jesus staked His claim to Messiah based on His fulfillment of prophecy as well. And yes, its SUCH a blessing that we have His word - and the comfort it gives us. Can you imagine facing these days without the word?

Caver - agree completely.

Anon - no hope whatsoever. None. Nada. Zip. Not until the Redeemer comes.

And the thing is, one thing that has always impressed me - is that very declaration in Daniel 2. What does the statue really reprsesent (in addition to the empires who ruled over Jerusalem) ? It stands as a reprsentation of "Human Government" IMO - and we see what God felt about that - the remains of the crumbled statue is gone completely - as worthless to God as any other worthless item. Human Government has been an abject failure since the beginning of man.

Plus, one reason New Jerusalem needs a "New Heaven and a New Earth" in which to reside, is because this current earth (EVEN in the 1,000 year reign) contains sin and thats incompatable with New Jerusalem.

We're nothing but corrupt and incapable of improving for now

As far as Soros...I could EASILY see him as having a role in the rise of the AC....I think he was largely behind Obama's rise to power (and there are a lot of good reasons to feel that way) --- With his money and influence AND the fact that he WANTS to create a world governance/financial/econ order - well, that blend seems too "low hanging" to pass up. We'll have to see, but he is the exact profile of someone who would bolster and support the AC (in the earth days anyway)....I also assume whoever (person or group) supports the AC's rise to power, it will be unwittingly. IOW - I don't think anyone (outside of prophecy circles) would believe that a single individual could gain so much power so soon...I am guessing it will come as a surprise even to those who prop him up initially
