The 'Alliance of Civilizations' report

Because I am a masochist, I have speed read this 39 page document, available in all its 'glory' here.

Anyway, herewith the short form version:

Blah blah inequality, injustice, all our fault for colonialism, Israel, terrorists /Islamofascists are reacting to this, address the causes...

Sort out 'Palestine', address inequality / injustice, no Western 'interference' in the Islamic world beyond hosing it down with money, all the change to be on our side of the fence etc etc.

It is, as I expected, the kind of mushy 'liberal' document one would expect an assemblage of western 'bien pensant' cultural relativists collaborating with the Islamic 'great and good' to cook up. Among the authors from the West were Karen 'Carrie' Armstrong, "I usually describe myself, perhaps flippantly, as a freelance monotheist. I draw sustenance from all three of the faiths of Abraham. I can't see any one of them as having the monopoly of truth, any one of them as superior to any of the others", French Socialist Hubert Védrine, Spanish Socialist José Zapatero, John Esposito, who fronts an organisation that has accepted $20m from Saudi Arabia and a Spanish former head of UNESCO. And Desmond ‘Israel is like Hitler and apartheid’ Tutu.

So many faces to slap, so little time. Karen "Carrie" (don't you just love people who let you know their nickname? As though anyone gave a stuff?)Armstrong doesn't seem to have read much of the Koran. It's a very barbaric, backward, primitive, Stone Age religion. I know it was invented in 800 or so, but the people who invented it were Stone Agers. They hadn't advanced one inch in tens of thousands of years. Stuck in the vast Saharan sands looking dully at the horizon and the sky. That was about it.

A religion that was invented during the Dark Ages and hadn't advanced at all would have been bad enough.

"carrie armstrong"
She was in sex and the city ?
played by that sarah jessica parker?
Never understood why she was held out to be a sex symbol, to me she looks like a well shaved staffordshire bull terrier. I cant even blame it on a jewish conspiracy as there are some decent loking jewish women , one doesnt spring to mind but I know there are some out there.

Can't say I've ever watched SatC, although I could hardly avoid being aware of it.

I think you might enjoy this story at The Register, where they discovered a novel choice for contraception involving Ms Parker at the Boots web site.

Meanwhile, here's a handy list of Jewish actors and actresses at the usual place. Something for all tastes in female pulchritude, ranging from shiksa lookalikes such as Alicia Silverstone, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson to the more conventionally 'Jewish' looking like Rachel Weisz and Julia Louis Dreyfus.

Alicia silverstone is a yid????
I feel unwell

See they are in a conspiracy, they way too over represented in the film industry and all other media.
Im with Mel gibson on this one.

Indeed she is. So was Marilyn Monroe for a bit. Meanwhile, a civilian friend (Hi M) was at school with Rachel Weisz, and she reckons RW is not always strictly honest about her age.....

Can't say I spy a conspiracy meself....

Danny Kay was one that supprised me , with the red hair "Voila un chapeau ..at 40 bucks a throw"

Yes yes this sort of pretense that we can all get along is no help at all it emboldens the lairy bears ( Polar Bears have lost fear and terrorise Edmonton )

YOu are a saint for reading it though

You always call Islam stoneage Verity but is it ? Wouldn`t a stoneage religion be pantheistic and evolve into a deist culture of some harmless sort .It seems to me to be altogether more virulent than a stoneage religion.

Thank you, Croydonian, for this revealing document.

I love Annex 2: Members of the High-Level Group. The majority belongs to Verity's favorite religion.

N - just goes to show, doesn't it? Those polar bears marauding in North London sound a bit worrying. Lucky old me being sarf of the river.

Colin - Yup, talk about the usual suspects. I'm amazed they were able to find a rabbi prepared to go along with it. Given the grandstanding inherent in the title, isn't it odd that the entire focus is on Western / Islamic issues, eh?

Since I didn't read the entire document, do I understand you correctly that entire civilizations (China, India) and continents (Southern America) haven't been dealt with in this PC "bible"?  

Blogger Croydonian said... 10:05 pm

Colin - yup, you got it in one. I wonder why these other peoples aren't squaring up to us, eh?

PHITCH - Polar bears have black skin ? Sigh.......

C Polar bears would be fur mini skirts whithin five minutes of arriving in Croydon.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 10:26 pm

N - I wonder if you could give a polar bear a 'Croydon facelift'?

(Note for non-locals - this is a popular look among the demoiselles de Croydon, whereby the hair is pulled back, with some force, into a pony tail).

Mr Mania
polar bears do indeed have black skin (and translucent hair)

Some incredible convolutions on that list of actors. Only David Beckham's maternal grandfather was Jewish - and I don't think there are any qualifications for him to be considered an actor. Neve Campbell was another on the list that puzzled me. A convent school girl and practising Catholic, she was mainly raised by her gentile Scottish father (although her mother is Jewish).

The final report of the United Nations’ Alliance of Civilizations (AoC) initiative was released earlier this month. In addition to its usual goal of combating exclusivist ideology, the report contains some interesting elements:

1) Exclusivist ideology is defined as “those who feed on exclusion and claim sole ownership of the truth. (Christians, read John 14:6 as you consider this statement.)
2) The core issue identified to be the bridge between the West and Islam is resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
3) The global and problematic players in this conflict have been identified as the adherents to the three monotheistic faiths.
4) Failure to resolve this conflict will result in a failed Alliance of Civilizations.

Also noteworthy is that the AoC has identified the European Union’s Barcelona Process as one of the frameworks in which it intends to use for implementation. For those unfamiliar with the Process, it is the foundation of the EU’s political, economic, and social policy. The Process, also known as the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, is represented as the only platform that can solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The social dimension of the Process, with implementation facilitated by the Anna Lindh Foundation, cooperates with the AoC and shares the common goal to combat religious fundamentalism worldwide.

So what happens to the adherents to the monotheistic faiths if the peace process fails? Lucis Trust, one of the contributors to the AoC initiative gives us an idea. In its publication The Rays and the Initiations , Lucis Trust says that those faiths are but three dead and gone religions with Judaism being old, obsolete, and separative. Christianity, they say, has served it purpose and the new age christ will replace the Gospel with a new truth. As for Muslims, they will accept the new age christ as their Imam Mahdi “who will lead them to light and to spiritual victory”.

The objective of the AoC, therefore, is “to enforce an Alliance of Civilizations against all those who…give prevalence…to a logic of divison and confrontation”. Since the Alliance intends to be fully prepared to enforce its objectives by 2009, I suspect that’s when they will introduce their symbol. Timing is everything. The European Commission has just submitted a document to the author of the Barcelona Process that it is time to deliver.
