Peace Coins

Arabic speaker's coin narrative

Introduction

Anyone who has been engaged for years with Off-Earth Civilizations has learned much from that experience.   It appears that while there may be common events in this association, I strongly suspect that in each case there is very specific reason for the contact.  Clearly, the ETs are in control of the situation.  Without specific authorization, no Human speaks for ETs.  However, there appears to be no restrictions on what Humans in contact with ETs may report about that contact. 

There is a complication that needs to be honored about the ET/Human relationships.  The ETs are very capable of mind influence.  This means they can easily “guide” a conversation without leaving any fingerprints of such activity.  This can lead to inflated human egos that sincerely believe that some of the brilliant insights they have are really homegrown.  I do not consider this to be a problem in the relationships I have with the ETs.  Without exception, my business with them has been focused on peace at all levels of Earth’s civilization.  The meeting point within that focus is to save Earth’s troubled civilization from self-destruction. 

The good news is that we are working with an ET organization that shares that goal.  The other news is that Humans will have to do the work and demonstrate that they have the will and energy to do it.

Some detail about that ET organization will be found in the Moon coin narrative at some future time.    The coin narratives link with each other, and in total, reveal details of the strategy and tactics we have jointly developed with the ETs to increase the odds that Earth’s civilization will be saved by dint of work done by Humans on Earth with modest, but critical, assistance from the ET community.   If you think this is important there most certainly is a role for you to play.

(The above ad to save Earth civilizations from self-destruction will be repeated as a lead to each coin narrative.)

No other language coin has a larger claim to contemporary importance than the Arabic language one.  The Moon coin is not in that ranking simply because no Earth language is currently spoken there.

The Arabic language and Islamic religion relationship is very close, but as the following figures establish, most of the followers of Islam do not speak Arabic.

The Wikipedia website Islam by Country uses data from the respected Pew Research Center that we provide below.

Muslims constitute the world’s second largest religious group.  According to a 2010 study released January 2011, Islam has 1.57 billion adherents, making up over 23% of the world’s population.  Most Muslims share of two denominations: Sunni (75-93.5%) or Shia (6.6 – 20%).  Ahmadis represent about 1% of the Muslim population.

Islam is the dominant religion in the Middle East, North Africa, The Horn of Africa, the Sahel, (The Sahel is the ecoclimatic zone of transition in Africa between the Sahara Desert to the north and the Sudanian Savanna to the south that has suffered from extreme drought) and some parts of Asia.  Large communities of Muslims are also found in China, the Balkans, India, and Russia.  Other parts of the world host large Muslim immigrant communities; in Western Europe, for instance, Islam is the second largest religion after Christianity, where it represents 6% of the total population.

According to the Pew Research Center in 2010 there were 50 Muslim-majority countries.  Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents.  The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia, a nation home to 12.7% of the world’s Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), India (10.9%), and Bangladesh (9.2%).  About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries.  In the Middle East, the non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran are the largest Muslim-majority countries; in Africa, Egypt and Nigeria have the most populous Muslim communities.  The study found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon, and more in China than in Syria.

Islam, measured in terms of world regions is:

Americas 5,256,000 0.6 0.3
World Total 1,619,314,000 23.4 100.0

The above Geo-Islam tutorial can support a number of conclusions.  One we hope the reader will recognize is that well over a billion followers of Islam have absolutely nothing to do with the madness going on in the Middle East.  Nor can the ancient Sunni-Shiite divide over who was the rightful successor to the Prophet Muhammad be directly blamed.  The Shiites constitute a majority only in Iran, Iraq, Azerbaijan and Bahrain.  It has been political use of sectarianism that has stoked the internal violence. 

It should never be forgotten that the 2003 US war (for oil) in Iraq was sold to the US public, Congress and the UN Security Council by deceit, lies about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  Other reasons could have been given, such as removing the world’s reigning tyrant.  But that would have presented avoidable problems.  The main one was that we had supported Saddam in his war with Iran, and removing him just because he was a dictator would have worried other dictators we supported because of where their country was, or the resources they had and we had access to, without a war.

Saddam Hussein was born into a Sunni Muslim pheasant family of the Al-Bu Nasir tribe. This tribe has a reputation of being cunning and secretive.  These attributes served Saddam well as he became one of the world’s most bloodthirsty despots.  He recruited extensively from his tribe to fill the upper echelons of his government, particularly to manage his security apparatus.

Iraqis who fled to Jordan have reported that the Fedayeen Saddam, a paramilitary group headed by Saddam’s oldest son Uday, killed scores of women in a “return to faith” campaign.  This included accused prostitutes in public killings by men, masked and clad in black.  Women were made to kneel in busy city squares and beheaded with swords.  This atrocious act has had a reprieve today.

The ISIS addition to this has been to boastfully use the internet to share it with the world.  ISIS has also learned the potential power of pushing the “religion button.”  The group of Republican aspirants to be the party’s choice for the 2016 presidential election appears to be hot-wired to that button.  They immediately jump when it is pushed and come up with a series of actions to take that presumes Islam is the basis of the threat.  That assumption is completely false.  A threat comes from a number of radical groups that have successfully hijacked the name of Islam.  This con will end when established Islamic countries of the region realize the danger of using ISIS and other pirate groups to advance their goal as the regional kingpin.  It might be helpful for someone to post and keep posting online that the crusades are over.  That was decided by Saladin, the 12th century Kurdish Muslim military commander who expelled the crusaders from Jerusalem.

There was no mercy for any person that Saddam deemed to be opposed to him.  There is no accurate record of how many were killed by him during his twenty-four year reign.  One estimate is a quarter to half a million.  This includes 50,000 to 182,000 Kurds and 25,000 to 280,000 during the repression of the 1991 rebellion. 

Even in death the Saddam drama continues.  Following his execution he was interred in a family plot near his birth place.  His tribe took responsibility for these arrangements, and more.  In August 2014, it was revealed that Shiite militiamen broke into the grave pavilion, tore down photographs and set fire to the area.  Also announced was that the attack had been anticipated and his tribal protectors had moved the body eight months earlier to a safer place.  Tribal loyalties are forever.  

The image chosen for the Arabic language coin is so recognizable that it probably is correctly identified by school children in every country of the world as the Gizah pyramids in Egypt.

These magnificent structures are the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that remains largely intact.  Egyptologists believe that the Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) was built as a tomb over a 10-20 year period, ending around 2560BC.

There are a number of theories about the construction techniques used to build these massive structures.  Not surprising, one of them claims that the task was simply beyond what which could be done at that time by Humans alone, and that Off-Earth Civilizations were involved.  That is a minority view and believable evidence of this is lacking.  However, there are a number of mysteries still surrounding this complex that includes the Great Sphinx, and the most modern tools of archeology are being used in continuing research.

On the issue of whether Off-Earth Civilizations were involved in assisting the Egyptians in building the Pyramid of Khufu, the answer turns upon the definition of “involved.”  More specifically it depends upon the type of involvement.  I believe that many Humans have received guidance that inspired their creativity in a number areas.  Some of the ideas and inventions of Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) make him a candidate as someone receiving assistance with advanced knowledge.  The fact that Tesla stated that he had been in contact with Off-Earth Civilizations puts his case in a special category.  A Google search on this issue results in a number of web sites that cover Tesla’s lost journals, his ET contact, secret technologies and even Men in Black.

For us, contact with Off-Earth Civilizations, specifically the Spiritual Hierarchy, is the enabling reality that supports our global peace work.

In the narrative associated with the Hindi speaker’s coin, Ashoka and his famous edicts were identified.   The life of this warrior King was transformed following the conquest of a neighboring country.  After the battle, Ashoka walked among the battlefield littered with the fallen and heard the cries of the families over the bodies of lost husbands and fathers.  This had a profound impact on Ashoka that can be called “victor’s remorse.”  His life was forever changed.

In the present era the US is the most powerful military country in the world.  It should be as it spends more for “defense” than the next seven top countries combined, and has been in combat around the world almost continually for a dozen years.   During this period, no US president who by the US Constitution is the Commander-in-Chief of all the military forces has shown any degree of victor’s remorse because there have been no great victories.  What we have experienced are a series of claimed successes that rise like a bloody Phoenix commanding additional attention.

There is no mystery about this.  Cycles of perpetual war are very profitable for a powerful few.

In a provocative assessment with the title: America Has Been at War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776, the website www.washingtonsblog.com details in nineteen pages “Year-by-year Timeline of America’s Major Wars (1776-2011)”.  That is not good news, and it certainly is not the rest of bad news.  What would a similar assessment show for other imperial powers?  Additionally, the author failed to account for another class of US wars:  the War on Drugs and the War on Cancer for two examples.  Both of these “wars” were either cynically designed for objectives other than what their names suggested or have resulted in “unintentional consequences” typical of all wars.

The War on Drugs has had zero effect on the availability of drugs.  The new draconian laws passed to implement this war resulted in a prison population in the US greater than any other nation, and marked with racial injustice.  African-American and Latinos together make up 29 percent of the total US population, but more than 75 percent of drug violators in state and federal prisons.   This has destroyed families.  It has also caused bloodbaths in Mexico and some Latin American countries.  In wars with drug cartels competing to provide drugs for users in the United States, more than 60,000 people have been killed since 2006 in Mexico alone.  It is encouraging that some states are now reducing their prison populations by offering alternatives to jail for low-level drug offenses, and some states have decriminalized the use of marijuana and more have recognized its medical use.  The over forty-year war on drugs is slowly winding down.

This is not so for the War on Cancer because of an unforgiveable element of fraud in it.  In its forty-four year run the US government has spent over $100 billion on cancer research.  This has resulted in a better understanding of the complex cancer family and there is no shortage of new drugs for treatment.  Improvements in diagnostic procedures are important. 

However, what not has happen is vastly more important than any of the above.  Medical schools in the US still teach future oncologists skills involved in “cut, burn and poison.”  They are not taught what doctors in Germany and other countries have learned about successfully treating cancer.  A physician in the US that uses any procedure not approved by the Federal Drug Administration can lose his license to practice medicine.  The revolving door between senior FDA officials and the powerful pharmaceutics community assures that the War on Cancer in the US has little chance of being won from a patient’s perspective.   The victory goes to very profitable pharmaceutics community.

One of the last great US warriors was General Dwight Eisenhower.  During World War II he led the combined allied forces in Europe against Nazi Germany.  After the war he wrote books and lectured about war.  When he later became the President of the US, he sharpened his focus on war because the Soviet Union became the new global threat.

The following are some of Eisenhower’s comments about war that are powerfully important and still timely.    

Perhaps his most famous quote comes from his Farewell Radio and Television Address to the American People, January 17, 1961:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.  The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exist and will persist.”

That was a bold statement from the retiring Commander-in-Chief, but the world would have been better served if it had been even bolder, and the last sentence was:  “I see the rise of misplaced power and the next president and Congress must work together to stop it.”

Instead of that happening the Congress was easily pulled into the complex by industries locating manufacturing facilities throughout the country. This made Pentagon budget items a local affair and of direct interest to members of Congress.  The complex now is the Congress-military-industry complex.  With millions of military contract dollars going to nationwide universities, that community may also be co-opted.

There are some Eisenhower quotes that come close to an expression of Victor’s Remorse:
“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity,”
Address before the Canadian Club, Ottawa, Canada, October 1, 1946
“Possibly my hatred of war blinds me so that I cannot comprehend the arguments they adduce. But, in my opinion, there is no such thing as a preventive war. Although this suggestion is repeatedly made, none has yet explained how war prevents war. Worse than this, no one has been able to explain away the fact that war creates the conditions that begat war.”
Remarks at Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania October 19, 1950
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. . .”
Address: “The Chance for Peace” Delivered before the American Society of Newspaper Editors, April 16, 1953
“The only way to win the next world war is to prevent it.”
Address at a Rally in the Civic Auditorium, Seattle, Washington. October 17, 1956

Experience based wisdom usually speaks to the heart of the listener. We believe that Eisenhower’s last quote above applies to one of our most important Pilot Programs: the Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space. The text of this Treaty is on this website. The Russia Federation and China have drafted a treaty to accomplish the same objective. We believe ours is superior. What is absolutely inferior are non-binding statements that keeping space free of weapons is a good idea. Such non-binding statements have garnered a number of signatures. That idea was sponsored by the US and other nations that claim a Treaty could not be verified. That assumption is incorrect. We believe that the US has technology capable of verifying compliance. In addition, when we were drafting the Treaty we were contacted by Off-Earth cultures asking if we would consider making them parties to the Treaty. Our first draft did that. This caused considerable confusion in countries that have not followed the extensive information about the Off-Earth’s Community’s interest and concern about our nuclear weapons. The facts are that in both the US and Russia, “UFOs” have appeared over ICBM installations and temporally shut down dozens of ICBMs. This was done without physical damage to these systems. Current editions of the Treaty do not identify Off-Earth Civilizations’ concern about the introduction of space-based weapons. That does not reduce their interest and concern one whit.

I do not think that President Eisenhower would agree that it is a wise idea to introduce weapons into space.  We have treaties that pledge we will reduce the number of nuclear warheads. That has resulted in important reductions, but we still maintain and spend billions to update thousands of warheads in excess of our strategic needs. The early reductions were relatively easy because the inventories of warheads in the Soviet Union and the US were grossly in excess of need. When improvements were made in delivery accuracy, fewer missiles, aircraft and warheads were needed to accomplish the mission.

This narrative cannot end without mention of a rare US military leader. What he learned about war and how he felt about it is certainly not without agreement from other former military leaders. The quotes above from Eisenhower carry a companion theme.

This military leader was Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC (1887-1940)

In 1935, he wrote the exposé War Is a Racket, a trenchant condemnation of the profit motive behind warfare. His views on the subject are summarized in the following passage from the November 1935 issue of the socialist magazine Common Sense:

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

Major General Butler was at one time the most decorated US Marine Corps officer. His decorations included two Congressional Medals of Honor. He was not shy about speaking his truth.

Our truth is that for civilization’s survival the most important Pilot Program we have jointly developed with the ET Spiritual Hierarchy is the treaty that bans all space-based weapons. The first country to try to sneak weapons into space will start a new arms race with unpredictable outcomes. The Treaty approach is needed. We are ready to present it to Heads of States.

When this Treaty is signed by major powers with space operations capabilities and agendas, the fact that space is legally designated as a weapon free zone establishes the necessary environment for cooperative commercial ventures. Perhaps more importantly it will also facilitate the anticipated need for cooperative military space use in service of a needful world as it responds to the consequences of climate change.
