The Secret Cold War Partnership between Pope John Paul II and White House Revealed

The Secret Cold War Partnership between Pope John Paul II and White House Revealed DEBKAfile Exclusive Intelligence Report April 2, 2005, 12:18 PM (GMT+02:00) Pope John Paul II broke out of the conventional papal mold in many ways that will engage generations of historians. Above all, he was the most democratic of any of his predecessors, always in close rapport with Catholic communities in every corner of the globe and possessed of an unfailing instinct for the times in which he lived. But the character of his papacy was also influenced critically by a chance episode that occurred more than a year before his investiture. This unreported episode and its epic aftermath are revealed here for the first time by DEBKAfile’s and DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s intelligence experts. In January 1977, Jimmy Carter was sworn in as US President after defeating Gerald Ford at the polls. Cyrus Vance followed Henry Kissinger as secretary of state, the outgoing secretary moving to New York as a pr

Russia will adopt preventive use of force ,Russian Defense Minister

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov answered to the popular Russian weekly newspaper "Argumenty i Fakty" A reader of the popular Russian weekly newspaper, Argumenty i Fakty, asked: "What can Russia do to stop NATO from approaching our borders?" Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov answered: "If NATO military infrastructure is created in the Baltic countries, any military and political actions Russia takes will correspond to the principles of self-defence. We do not have illusions about why the Baltic countries have been admitted into NATO and why it has already started deploying its planes there. This has nothing to do with the fight against terrorism. I believe that if our partners treat our concerns seriously, they will do everything possible to prevent Russia's estrangement and not to inflict damage on it. We would welcome the beginning of negotiations on these problems. So far, however, NATO's actions worry us. The decision made at allian

Apex court rejects Swamy's plea against Sonia

Apex court rejects Swamy's plea against Sonia By J. Venkatesan New Delhi, April 11. The Supreme Court today dismissed at the admission stage a writ petitionfiled by Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy seeking a direction to the Election Commission to register a complaint against Congress president Sonia Gandhi for filing a false affidavit regarding her educational qualification when she contested from the Rae Bareliparliamentary constituency last year. A Bench of Chief Justice R.C. Lahoti and Justice G.P. Mathur declined to entertain the petition despite forceful arguments made by Swamy himself pleading for issuing notice to the Election Commission and Sonia Gandhi. In his petition Swamy contented that in her affidavit Sonia Gandhi had claimed that she had undergone a English course from Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. To a query, the Cambridge University had replied that Sonia Gandhi was never a student and that she had obtained the certificates from one of

I am a proud American Hindu -- never, ever dare call me "South Asian"

-- Narain Kataria Some anti-Hindu and anti-Indian groups in USA have coined a funny phrase "South Asian" for the people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, etc. A large majority of the members of these groups that use the meaningless phrase "South Asian" are Hindus from India. They were born as Hindus. Many of them were educated in missionary schools or in the KGB funded schools in India or elsewhere and consider themselves to be intellectuals. But, somehow they have developed a sense of inferiority for the word Hindu. They are ashamed of their parentage, ancestry, heritage and civilization. Many of these so called intellectuals are endowed with a deep sense of ignorance about the chivalry, gallantry, sacrifices, courage and magnanimity of their great Hindu ancestors. So, they like to identify a massive block of one-billion people as "South Asians" in place of their accurate description as "Hindus." Shorn of antiquity an

Brajesh Mishra , a Congress Mole in NDA government

Mr. Brajesh Mishra's father, the late D.P.Mishra was a staunch and ambitious Congressman, very close to Indira Gandhi, has been promoting the interests of the Sonia Congress from the beginning. Brajesh Mishra tried to see that the NDA would not get victory in the 2004 Parliamentary elections. There is a record of the mischiefs of the Prime Minister's Principal Secretary, Brajesh Mishra, who, IntelliBriefs sources said he had become the PM himself and was taking some decisions which were not in the interests of the nation and the BJP. Source further said that the following decisions were taken by him and they were of the above type: (1)It was on Sonia's direction that her arch rival Maneka Gandhi was removed from the Atalji's cabinet most unceremoniously. (2) Mishra tried his best to see that Advani did not become the Dy, P.M., but failsed , thanks to intervention by some RSS bigwigs. Please refer to Title : Mishra, Not Vajpayee, diminished by

Violence in Northeast India

Violence in Northeast India Hinduism Today January/February/March, 2005 Suffering the effects of poverty, neglect, exploitation and religious conversion Turn on the television any day of the week, anywhere in the world, and you are sure to catch current news detailing terrorist atrocities occurring in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although similar violence is being committed by insurgents in Northeast India, these latter crimes are receiving surprisingly little news coverage. On a single day in early October, 2004, militants set off bombs and opened gunfire all across India's Northeast, killing at least 46 people and wounding nearly 100. Two bombs exploded in a marketplace in Dimapur, the commercial center in the state of Nagaland. At the same time, a third bomb ripped through a nearby railway station. Twenty-six people died in the Nagaland attacks. Later on the same day, heavily armed Bodo tribal guerrillas in the neighboring state of Assam drove into a town square and gunned down

Africa cries for revenge

Posted April 13, 2005 Organiser April 17, 2005 By M.S.N. Menon Revenge and reparation—this is what Africa wants from the West. And it has an account to settle with the Christian church. On the wall of the Elmina Castle in Ghana is a plaque. It proclaims: “In everlasting memory of the anguish of our ancestors. May those who died rest in peace. May those who return find their roots. May humanity never again perpetrate such injustices.” Pious wish, you might say. Slave forts like Elmina are to be found all along the western coast of Africa. At the end of the 18th century, there were 14 English forts, 15 Dutch, four Portuguese, four Dutch, three French and six Spanish, where slaves were interned before they were shipped out to the plantations of the New World. The Christian church was a party to the slave trade. Did it not consider the black man as the son of the devil? Even the Reformation made no impact on the slave trade. Inequality, said Martin Luther, the leader of the Reformatio

Brijesh Mishra a CIA agent?

Brijesh Mishra a CIA agent? On September 27, 2001 Rahul Gandhi MP and his Columbian live in girl friend of Kerala backwater tourist centre fame, Juanita alias Veronique, was arrested in United States of America's Logan airport in Boston, by the FBI. Rahul was having an Italian passport and was carrying suitcase full of dollars. Some say it was about $2 billion or was it $2 million. This huge dollar amount generated suspicion with the US authorities. Rahul and his girl friend was thus detained by FBI. FBI suspected that Rahul was carrying terrorist funds or drug money for laundering in US. Rahul called his mother Sonia Gandhi in India. In turn Sonia called Brijesh Mishra, the former National Security Advisor and a key aide to former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee at the Prime Ministers Office. Brijesh Mishra intervened on behalf of our PM Vajpayee with the US Administration for the release Rahul from FBI custody. Rahul Gandhi was released only when the In

Subranian Swamy questions Brajesh Mishra

Subranian Swamy questions Brajesh Mishra STATEMENT OF DR.SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY, PRESIDENT OF JANATA PARTY MADE IN CHENNAI ON APRIL 13, 2005 1. India is facing a severe threat to its national integrity. Indians will soon have to decide on whose side they stand on the side of the ancient Indian civilization or in the corner of fraudulent money throwing foreign fraudulent Christian missionary forces who are out to disrupt India. The recent visits of Benny Hinn and K.A.Paul are indicative of the likely `invasion' of India by these forces and its money power. Their patron, as indicted by Benny Hinn publicly, is Ms.Sonia Gandhi. Most of Congress Party has already capitulated to these forces. 2. Some Indian leaders, professing to be devout Hindus, who have capitulated, on blackmail, and have become the tools of these forces. Ms.Jayalalitha, the present CM of Tamil Nadu is one such Hindu renegade. She has pathetically surrendered to Ms.Sonia Gandhi and agreed to do Ms

RSS / BJP : Old Leaders must go

-- Care Our India Starting 2000, I started criticizing Vajpayee whenever I got the occasion, either in forums or group discussions. Whoever read my postings blasted me for being a traitor of Hindus and for targeting the one and only one Hindu statesman Vajpayee. Well, I had a genuine grouse against him. The logic goes like this: Before 1999, when BJP came to power, it promised these basic measures. 1) Scrapping article 370 of the constitution and complete integration of J&K with rest of India 2) Building temple at Ayodhya 3) Ban conversions 4) Apply uniform civil code 5) De-detoxification of school textbooks 6) Corrupt free administration 7) STRONG NATIONAL SECURITY & TAKING WAR INTO PAKISTAN IN RESPONSE TO CROSS BORDER TERRORISM 8) Giving Hindus their rightful place in the country and stop appeasing minorities I agree some of them are highly controversial & some of them are least controversial. How difficult is to clean the administration, clean the political and elect

Christians Spend U.S. $165 Million Every Year to Convert India's Hindus

"One hundred thousand children die every month in India! We must rescue them. There are thousands sleeping in the streets in total destitution," exhorts Spiros Zodhiates to the American donors of his Christian missionary organization. Advancing the Ministries of the Gospel. And rescue them he does, taking in thousands of Hindu orphans and placing them with Christian foster parents or in Christian orphanages, Hindu faith, nearly all will become Christians. It's an example of what Dr. S.M. Ponniah, Advisor to the Malaysia Hindu Sangam, meant when he acidly noted, "Christian missionaries pray on their knees on Sunday and prey on Hindus the rest of the week." One billion US dollars, that's how much American Protestant Christian organizations spent last year trying to gain converts from other religions, and the Catholics spent an equal amount. According to official Indian government reports US $165 million is sent to Christian missions in India each year. The be

Beijing's Alarm Over New "US Encirclement Conspiracy"

By Willy Lam One of Beijing's worst nightmares seems to be coming true. Having apparently steadied the course in the Middle East, the Bush administration is turning to Asia to tame its long-standing "strategic competitor." While this particular term has been shelved since 9/11 – and Sino-U.S. relations have improved thanks to China's cooperation with Washington's global anti-terrorist campaign – there are signs at least from Beijing's perspective that Washington is spearheading multi-pronged tactics to contain the fast-rising Asian giant. In the eyes of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership, the new doctrine of encirclement and containment was spelled out during a visit by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Tokyo, part of a recent tour through Asia. Echoing President Bush's State of the Union address, which pushed a foreign policy predicated upon "spreading democracy," Rice noted in a speech at Sophia University that "even Chin
