22 February 1991. Thought for the Week: "A Trades Union is simply a labour monopoly, and is subject to the same over riding criticism as any other monopoly, the object of which is to obtain absolute power over the thing monopolised. 'All power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.' It is arguable... that the early craft unions were beneficial... .The whole of the activities of the Trades Unions are now a dead loss to the community "

A LONGER VIEW OF THE MIDDLE EAST DRAMA
by Eric D. Butler
With the collapse of Czarist Russia, undermined by the same forces which prepared the way for the establishment of Bolshevism, Imperial Germany was free to concentrate its total forces on the Western front, resulting in a desperate military situation which, in the absence of American intervention in the conflict, must have led to some type of peace agreement. The situation was exploited by International Zionism with its strong backing by the Rothschilds and other German-Jewish international bankers.
The infamous Balfour Declaration was
a promise to International Zionism that America could be manipulated
into the conflict if a promise was made to establish a "National
Home" - note, not a nation - for the Jews. Lord Balfour, who
signed the declaration on behalf of the British Government,
was one of those many Christians seduced by the myth, later
developed in more concrete form, that the mass immigration
of Zionist Jews into Palestine was some type of fulfillment
of Biblical prophecy.
As little real history is taught today, relatively few people in the West have ever heard about the declaration, which set in motion the revolutionary forces, which have led to the present. But the Arab world has never forgotten. Anyone who fails to address himself to how the Zionist State of Israel was eventually established, and how the British were driven by a design of cold blooded terror to prematurely hand over their League of Nations mandate over Palestine, and what has taken place since, has no realistic contribution to make to the Middle East drama.
Soviet leader Gorbachev's attempt to play a decisive role in the current crisis, is in keeping with the Soviet's long term strategy in the Middle East, starting with the Soviet being the first to recognise the new State of Israel and ensuring it had sufficient military equipment. A personal experience highlights the nature of the problem of promoting any realistic assessment of what is taking place in the Middle East:
"Up until a visit to South Africa
in 1967, I had been regularly used by the South African Broadcasting
Commission as a commentator on international affairs, with
particular reference to Soviet strategy. It was shortly after
the 1967 Israeli-Arab conflict, the six-day war, that I was
met by a friend from the South African Broadcasting Commission
when I arrived in Johannesburg from London. My friends opening
words were, "Well, what a tremendous defeat the Soviet has
experienced. You must feel relieved?" When I explained that
I did not subscribe to this popular view that in fact I believed
that the Soviet had scored a major strategic victory, it had
to be made clear to me that in the present climate in South
Africa it would not be appropriate to interview me. My views
were based primarily on the assessment of a real authority
on the Middle East, Sir John Glubb ("Glubb Pasha"), the famous
British military leader who had trained Arab troops. Glubb
had pointed out that so far from the quick Israeli victory
being a miracle, the Soviet had led the Arabs into a trap,
knowing, as Glubb knew, that the Arabs would be badly defeated.
Glubb said he was surprised the conflict lasted six days.
Soviet propaganda then exploited the situation, adopting a
pro-Arab stance, while leaving the West, in the eyes of the
Arabs, the backers of an aggressive Zionist Israel.
(A small supply of Sir John Glubb's historic and most prophetic little book, The Middle East Crisis, long out of print, has been located and will be available shortly. $6 posted from all League Bookshops.)
It's an ill wind that blows no good. British involvement in the Gulf War has boosted the electoral stocks of John Major and the British Conservative Government to the point where it appears that the Major Government could be elected, even with a reduced majority, at an early election. From the long-term point of view, it would be preferable for the Major Government to be elected rather than a Labor Party totally committed to sinking the British in the emerging "New Europe". Having accepted the Presidency of the Bruges anti-Common Market group, Margaret Thatcher has made her intentions clear: she is going to continue working against any further surrender of British sovereignty. As events unfold, mounting problems and growing friction inside the European Economic Community are going to confirm the stand Margaret Thatcher attempted to take. Enoch Powell is reported as saying that the Poll Tax - now hardly receiving a mention - was not the factor in Margaret Thatcher's downfall. It was the inspired media campaign reflecting the internationalists determined to trap the British into the first major step towards the creation of "The New World Order".
The Gulf War is tending to direct attention away from another war, an economic conflict that, in the absence of constructive alternative policies, could see large numbers of Australian primary producers economically destroyed. A fierce trade war between the U.S.A and the European Economic Community, with both sides using massive subsidies, is having a devastating effect on the price of wheat and other Australian agricultural exports. The situation highlights the urgent necessity for Australia to adopt a programme of National Survival, this requiring a basic change in financial policy. One of the first steps must be the re-regulation of the banking system, bringing it firmly under the control of the elected representatives of the Australian people.
THE APOSTACY OF THE W.C.C."Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the father except through me' " John 14:6. The current deliberations of the World Council of Churches took ecumenism to new heights last week, demonstrating that the charges leveled at it by Christians that it is drastically weakening the faith have much validity. Meeting in Canberra since February 7th, the 4,000 delegates and bureaucratic staff of the modern day Tower of Babel were asked to elevate other religions to the same spiritual status as Christianity. The Council's Director of Interfaith Dialogue, Dr. Wesley Ariarajah, of Sri Lanka, suggested that Muslims, Hindus and others achieve salvation in the same way as do Christians and warned the Christians against 'narrow thinking' on the issue. "If you are a Christian you must be open and broad, not narrow and exclusive," he is reported to have said, ignoring the basic tenets of Christianity, which from the lips of Christ, appear exclusive.
The W.C.C., which has invited Hindu, Islamic and Buddhist observers to the conference, has become so "open and broad" that its own constituent bodies seem to embrace anything from near paganism to High Church. It has an agenda so dominated by revolutionary politics (opening the conference with a ceremony asking Aborigines permission to step onto their land) that the fundamentals of the Christian faith are fast disappearing. What respect would other religions accord a version of Christianity that has conveniently circumvented Christ?
REMARKABLE LETTER FROM MR. BRUCE LLOYDMr. Bruce Lloyd, Deputy National Party leader and Shadow Minister for Primary Industries, has written a remarkable letter concerning a proposed $400 million to be extended to the Soviet Union to obtain Australian wool. In a letter dated February 4th, Mr. Lloyd says, "The U.S.S.R. is not being given a loan and therefore it will not be paying interest to the Australian Government. The Australian Government is simply offering to guarantee that Russia will not welsh on its agreements with private companies to a total amount of $400 million. "The way it works is that the Australian wool trader reaches agreement to sell wool to the U.S.S.R. buyer on credit terms which are financed through normal trading banks at commercial rates of interest, ... the Government has agreed that it will guarantee any failure to pay up to the total amount of $400 million..." We will be analysing this amazing proposal in detail later.
from The Mail-Times (Wimmera,
Horsham, Vic.), February 6th
"Our country remains undefended, and our young people are condemned to the unemployment scrap heap. "Yet the deliberate financially restrictive policies of the Hawke Government are applauded by Opposition leader Hewson, who says that he would pull the financial noose even tighter! "But that is not all. Our country continues to self-destruct by importing a host of products, which can be produced here, and apparently last year the bill for imported food topped two billion. "Some of the items were fruit and vegetables, either fresh, dried, or canned, fruit juices and concentrates, wine, mineral water, cheese, rice, beef, and even wool. This, mark you, at a time when our farmers are shooting their sheep.
"Clearly, the alternatives are to stop self destructing, but Australia is locked into international agreements which make further destruction inevitable. "The International Monetary Fund and World Bank give us our financial orders, and the New International Economic Order, which our Government supports, seeks to centralise world production on a global scale, with the whole world becoming interdependent, the final objective being the tyranny of world government.
"When confronted with the reality that our development can be financed within Australia, Mr. Fisher's best answer is that no economist or government adviser supports this. "Of course they don't! It becomes a question of philosophy, and local independence will always be anathema to those who think that they know what is best for everyone. "Likewise, Mr. Hawke is silent on the signing of international agreements, yet the two questions are vitally concerned with not only our well being, but our survival. "Will our political leaders then face the real issue? Will they search for a political system, which is in fact a partnership of goodwill between those who govern and those who are governed? Will they seek to implement new policies and discard those that have been time tested and failed? "Will They?
*Face the reality that production is
for the purpose of consumption, and not get money from foreign
