"Responsibility To Protect" In Focus

We've been following this relatively new doctrine "Responsibility to Protect", as pushed by George Soros and his various organizations, and considered the possibility that this could be used to send troops into Israel much like it was used to force the changes we saw in Libya. It seems an obvious possibility, particularly when considering its origins. It now appears that we may be seeing that possibility become a reality:

As they say, "the devil is in the details":

Among his announcements, the president highlighted his new Atrocities Prevention Board, an initiative aimed at preventing genocide and related social ills. What’s most interesting about the bold proposal, though, is the individual who will chair the board — Samantha Power.
Why is she noteworthy, you ask? To begin, Power has a complicated history with the Obama camp and has been accused, in the past, of making disparaging remarks about Israel. The Chicago Sun-Times has more about Power and her involvement in the new-found genocide prevention board:

Samantha Power — who won a Pulitizer Prize for her book on genocide and now advises the Obama administration on the subject–will chair President Barack Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board, which gets down to work Monday

You may also remember Power from her role in Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign (she resigned after calling Hillary Clinton a “monster”). She’s also the wife of Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs’ Administrator Cass Sunstein (of “Nudge” fame).
“Now from her perch on the national Security Council, she is in a position to make the case for the commander in chief and to watch him translate her ideas into action. She’s clearly the foremost voice for human rights with in the White House, says Kenneth Ross. She has Obama’s ear. The Irish‑born Miss Power…functions as kind of an institutional memory bank on genocide,” 
“So we have Cass Sunstein’s wife advising on the Responsibility to Protect,” Glenn said “If you’re in the circle of George Soros, she was a queen. George Soros immediately funded a group to push the Responsibility to Protect.”
“[UN official Richard Falk] has been pushing for the right to protect or the Responsibility to Protect to be used against Israel and they’ve been trying this now for the last couple of years, and that’s what this is really all about, period. This is about going after Israel,” Glenn said. [Emphasis added]

Wait - it gets worse (note the bolded comments):

Considering this information and her past comments about Israel, The Lid blog wonders if Powerwill use her position on the Atrocities Prevention Board “as a tool to de-legitimize Israel.” The blog notes that, in 2002, Power sat down with Harry Kreisler, the director of the Institute for International Studies at Berkeley. Kreisler asked her the following:

“Let me give you a thought experiment here, and it is the following: without addressing the Palestine – Israel problem, let’s say you were an advisor to the President of the United States, how would you respond to current events there? Would you advise him to put a structure in place to monitor that situation, at least if one party or another [starts] looking like they might be moving toward genocide?”

Power’s response, in the eyes of those who support Israel, was problematic, as she claimed support for “external intervention” in the Israeli-Palestinian dilemma and said that it’s important to consider the “lesser evils” associated with getting involved in alleviating the issue. She also, at one point in her commentary, claimed that Middle Eastern leaders — including Israel, it seems — are “destroying the lives of their own people.” Here is a portion of her response, word-for-word:

“What we need is a willingness to actually put something on the line…and putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import. It may more crucially mean…investing literally billions of dollars not in servicing Israeli military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine.

In investing billions of dollars it would probably take also to support, I think, what would to be, I think, a mammoth protection force…a meaningful military presence because it seems to me at this stage — and this is true of actual genocides as well and not just major human rights abuses which we’re seeing there — but is that you have to go in as if you’re serious. You have to put something on the line and unfortunately the position of a solution on unwilling parties is dreadful, it’s a terrible thing to do its fundamentally undemocratic.”

I have always felt that the "confirming the covenant" of Daniel 9:27 would have to (by necessity) involve sending in ground "peace-keeping" forces to Israel. The basis for this belief is the fact that all previous attempts at peace covenants in Israel and the surrounding enemies were met with significant violence which subsequently disrupted any possibility to confirm such a covenant. 1993 and the Oslo Accords immediately comes to mind. 

With the "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine, the rationale would be in place to send in such peace-keeping forces, which would effectively "confirm the covenant". 

This is very big news and worth watching very closely in the coming months. The fact that we now have a formal organization to implements such action - coupled with the fact that the main players are devoutly opposed to Israel gives even more credibility to such speculation.

Well, well, well....and it sees that while we watch the big pieces of the jigsaw puzzle slide into place...the itty bitty ones are finding their niche also.

Just amazing....and she doesn't even have to be confirmed by the elected officials....another Czar, how pretty.

Scott said...

Yep - and it is looking more and more like RTP will be used against Israel - after all, its the 'perfect tool' for those who hate Israel and want to see the country destroyed. This is a huge development IMO

Caver said...

Yup, from day one of that new RTP, months ago we both predicted that somehow that would be used to turn on Israel.

I did not, at the time, connect that with the confirming of a covenant....the covenant. It seems such a neon light now.

Scott said...

Fits like a glove doesn't it. Man - talk about 'low hanging fruit".....Its almost too easy.

Cary said...

A few years back a Rabbi told me that the Oslo Accords mentioned a seven year time period...is this true?


Scott said...


Yes. Its slightly complicated - as there was to be a 5 year period, which was like a probationary period and a 2 year period required before 'full statehood'....It was complicated but it did add up to 7 years.

I do not have a clue who the AC is but he has to be in the wings somewhere.

Sometimes when watching the news I scan the people standing behind all the heads of state and wonder..

Just now I had the worse feeling about some of my close friends. Eternity is a very, very long time.


besides my family (my dad is a retired pastor) this site fills something in my life .. I really do appreciate you guys..

Scott said...


I completely agree - the AC is waiting in the wings.

I too feel a certain urgency to witness to my friends and whoever else will listen :)

Ally said...

Whoa! I dont know who the a.c. Is either. (isnt that funny, we are so close, lol, he has to be right in front of our faces! And yet he remains hidden!)
But I can pretty much guess who his financier is! Ya think? Thats about 100% obvious! Weird though, read an article about an interview he did once wear he said he has had messianic aspirations since childhood and he loves raw power more than anything. Nah, couldnt be..........could it?
Creepy dude for sure.

And yet, it could be a LONG TIME before the rapture. Why ?? Cos stocks continue to rally, even tonite. I see we have moderation again. Well, I hope this gets published.

It does not matter, really, since
AS LONG AS bulls are dominant, the
END will not come.

These are some pretty serious and heavy headlines going on lately Scott. Thanks for your hard work. I've been wondering why RTP has not worked in Syria? It's like they are dragging this out for their own timing and agenda for some reason.

Scott said...

I believe its because of the problems it would create with Russia - since Russia is allied with Iran and Syria...No one wants to mess with Russia right now.
