RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT…ITS CONNECTION TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER
(based on article by Aaron Klein)
Another stunner behind Obama’s Libya doctrine
Alex Jones and many others like him such as Stephen Gilmour of Talk Radio Europe have carried on endless propaganda on The New World Order
But Jones is unable to connect the dots on the connection of NWO to the new doctrine, which is now the main doctrine which is guiding Obama and the political elite of Europe, especially in the latter case of Europe, the British Prime Minister, his Liberal Party Coalition partner, the British Labour Party also which is the main opposition party but is in total agreement on the issue of “responsibility to protect”
INTERFERENCE IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES…AS OLD AS CAPITALISM…Britain in Ireland for example
This in the modern period is not new. It goes back to Woodrow Wilson in the post World War 1 period.
It intensified at the time of the Iranian Revolution when Carter undertook to look leniently on the Khomeini Islamic Revolution, which was all about America dumping the Shah and providing cover for the Islamists. It really came home in the interventions in Yugoslavia by especially Clinton and Blair. Yugoslavia would still exist without that essential doctrine which tore the country apart and caused all of the loss of life and property. It was partially behind the Iraqi invasion but it has reached its highest point in the war on Gadhafi and Libya
This doctrine of the “responsibility to protect” certainly has great power to move…politicians. The votes in the Spanish and British Parliaments were almost unanimous. In Spain the number voting against in their Cortez was 3 individuals who did so only on the pacifist basis of anti war. Thus they did not identify the doctrine of “responsibility to protect”
Research and an important recent article have identified the deep roots of this new doctrine which is guiding the world, and which has taken Gadhafi by surprise.
GADHAFI HAD MADE HIS PEACE WITH THE EMPIRE AND HAD TRUSTED THE EMPIRE…GADHAFI HAD PROVIDED AN IMPORTANT SERVICE TO EMPIRE IN WAR AGAINST JIHAD
Gadhafi made his peace with Imperialism having seen the extreme force used against the retreating Iraqi Columns in the First Bush Snr War over Kuwait
It has become clear that Gadhafi emerged as a key ally and player in the fight to prevent Al Qaida carrying out further atrocities following 9-11. Gadhafi also was facing these enemies of Al Qaida as well as was America. Hence the partnership was real.
It is Obama and Obama who have broken that partnership. Gadhafi did not break it. Gadhafi remained a loyal supporter and in his first speeches there were parts which showed that he was angry and totally mystified as to why it should be changed
Probably what Gadhafi did not understand was the deep roots of this doctrine of “responsibity to protect” and that these deep roots were going back all the time to one of the greatest stains on humanity that we as humans have known
THE ROOTS OF THIS NASCENT FASCIST DOCTRINE DRAW US BACK TO ARAB AND HITLERITE ANTISEMITISM
This would be particularly difficult for Gadhafi to handle. You see the roots go back to the PLO which Gadhafi as an Arab nationalist was in support of, or at least had swallowed the propaganda lies of, and against the Jews
In one of his recent speeches Gadhafi did in fact draw the connection, referring to his struggle against Al Qaida as similar to the Jews (Israel) against Hamas
SO WHAT IS THIS DOCTRINE?
What is the new doctrine of “responsibility to protect”?
IT IS VITAL THAT ALL READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT ANALYSIS BY AARON KLEIN
Another stunner behind Obama’s Libya doctrine

TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.
As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world’s leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine’s main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros.
The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied to Obama aide Samantha Power, who reportedly heavily influenced Obama in consultations leading to the decision to bomb Libya. Power is the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights.
Now it has emerged that Palestinian legislator Hanan Ashrawi served on the advisory board of the 2001 commission that originally founded Responsibility to Protect.
That commission is called the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty. It invented the term “Responsibility to Protect,” while defining its guidelines.
Ashrawi is an infamous defender of Palestinian terrorism. Her father, Daoud Mikhail, was a co-founder of the PLO with Arafat. The PLO was engaged in scores of international terrorist acts and was declared a terrorist group by the U.S. in 1987.
During the First Palestinian Intifada, or war of “resistance” against Israel, in 1988, Ashrawi joined what was known as the Intifada Political Committee, which sought to advance Palestinian goals through both politics and “resistance.” She served there until 1993.
In 1991, Arafat appointed Ashrawi to serve as the PLO’s Minister of Higher Education and Research. The Palestinian school system is notorious for its glorification of “martyrdom,” or suicide bombings, and has long preached against the existence of Israel.
(Story continues below)
Discover the Networks notes Ashrawi has long defended the Hamas terror group as a legitimate component of the Palestinian “political spectrum.”
She has stated she does not “think of Hamas as a terrorist group.”
“We coordinate [with Hamas] politically,” she said in April 1993, “the people we know and talk to are not terrorists.”
In 1998 Ashrawi founded MIFTAH, a nonprofit that seeks to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and refers to that Jewish state’s 1948 creation as “Al Nakba,” or “The Catastrophe.”
Ashrawi has long been a Holocaust denier. In the July 2, 1998, edition of the official Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda, she published an article calling the Holocaust “a deceitful myth, which the Jews have … exploited to get sympathy.”
In 2001 Ashrawi became a spokeswoman for the Arab League.
Notably, Amre Moussa, Secretary General of the Arab League, served as an adviser to the same 2001 commission that invented the “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine.
Ashrawi, meanwhile, was a protégé and later colleague and close friend of late Columbia University Professor Edward Said, another notorious apologist for Palestinian terrorism.
Said was replaced by Rashid Khalidi, a close personal friend to Obama.
Soros funded doctrine
With Ashrawi on the advisory board, the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty first defined the “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine.
In his address to the nation on Monday, Obama specifically cited the military doctrine as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.
Indeed, the Libya bombings have been widely regarded as a test of “Responsibility to Protect.”
“Responsibility to Protect,” or “Responsibility to Act” as cited by Obama is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of “war crimes,” “genocide,” “crimes against humanity” or “ethnic cleansing.”
The term “war crimes” has at times been indiscriminately used by various U.N.-backed international bodies, including the International Criminal Court, or ICC, which applied it to Israeli anti-terror operations in the Gaza Strip. There has also been fear the ICC could be used to prosecute U.S. troops.
The Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect is the world’s leading champion of the military doctrine.
Two of global group’s advisory board members, Ramesh Thakur and Gareth Evans, are the original founders of the “Responsibility” doctrine, with the duo even coining the term “Responsibility to Protect.”
Soros’ Open Society is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. Government sponsors include Australia, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Rwanda and the U.K.
Board members of the group include former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, former Ireland President Mary Robinson and South African activist Desmond Tutu. Robinson and Tutu have recently made solidarity visits to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip as members of a group called The Elders, which includes former President Jimmy Carter.
Annan once famously stated, “State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined – not least by the forces of globalization and international co-operation. States are … instruments at the service of their peoples and not vice versa.”
Obama cited doctrine multiple times
Aside from his direct citation of the “Responsibility” doctrine in his address explaining why the U.S. is acting against Libya, Obama alluded to the doctrine four more times in his speech.
(speaking on Libya March 28 2011)
The following are relevant excerpts from his address, with references to U.S. “responsibility” in bold:
- In this effort, the United States has not acted alone. Instead, we have been joined by a strong and growing coalition. This includes our closest allies – nations like the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey – all of whom have fought by our side for decades. And it includes Arab partners like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, who have chosen to meet their responsibility to defend the Libyan people.
- Last night, NATO decided to take on the additional responsibility of protecting Libyan civilians.
- To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader and – more profoundly – our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are.
- The task that I assigned our forces – to protect the Libyan people from immediate danger and to establish a No Fly Zone – carries with it a U.N. mandate and international support. So would the costs and our share of the responsibility for what comes next.
Soros: Right to ‘penetrate nation-states’ borders’
Soros himself outlined the fundamentals of Responsibility to Protect in a 2004 Foreign Policy magazine article entitled “The People’s Sovereignty: How a New Twist on an Old Idea Can Protect the World’s Most Vulnerable Populations.”
In the article, Soros said “true sovereignty belongs to the people, who in turn delegate it to their governments.”
“If governments abuse the authority entrusted to them and citizens have no opportunity to correct such abuses, outside interference is justified,” Soros wrote. “By specifying that sovereignty is based on the people, the international community can penetrate nation-states’ borders to protect the rights of citizens.
“In particular, the principle of the people’s sovereignty can help solve two modern challenges: the obstacles to delivering aid effectively to sovereign states and the obstacles to global collective action dealing with states experiencing internal conflict,” he concluded.
More Soros ties
Responsibility founders Evans and Thakur served as co-chair, with Gregorian on the advisory board of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, which invented the term “Responsibility to Protect.”
In his capacity as co-chair, Evans also played a pivotal role in initiating the fundamental shift from sovereignty as a right to “sovereignty as responsibility.”
Evans presented “Responsibility to Protect” at the July 23, 2009, United Nations General Assembly, which was convened to consider the principle.
Evans sits on multiple boards with Soros, including the Clinton Global Initiative.
Thakur is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, which is in partnership with an economic institute founded by Soros.
Soros is on the executive board of the International Crisis Group, a “crisis management organization” for which Evans serves as president-emeritus.
WND previously reported how the group has been petitioning for the U.S. to normalize ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, the main opposition in Egypt, where longtime U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was recently toppled.
Aside from Evans and Soros, the group includes on its board Egyptian opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei, as well as other personalities who champion dialogue with Hamas, a violent offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
WND also reported the crisis group has also petitioned for the Algerian government to cease “excessive” military activities against al-Qaida-linked groups and to allow organizations seeking to create an Islamic state to participate in the Algerian government.
Soros’ own Open Society Institute has funded opposition groups across the Middle East and North Africa, including organizations involved in the current chaos.
‘One World Order’
WND also reported that doctrine founder Thakur recently advocated for a “global rebalancing” and “international redistribution” to create a “New World Order.”
“Toward a new world order,” Thakur wrote in a piece last March in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, “Westerners must change lifestyles and support international redistribution.”
He was referring there to a United Nations-brokered international climate treaty in which he argued, “Developing countries must reorient growth in cleaner and greener directions.”
In the opinion piece, Thakur then discussed recent military engagements and how the financial crisis has impacted the U.S.
“The West’s bullying approach to developing nations won’t work anymore – global power is shifting to Asia,” he wrote.
“A much-needed global moral rebalancing is in train,” he added.
Thakur continued: “Westerners have lost their previous capacity to set standards and rules of behavior for the world. Unless they recognize this reality, there is little prospect of making significant progress in deadlocked international negotiations.”
Thakur contended “the demonstration of the limits to U.S. and NATO power in Iraq and Afghanistan has left many less fearful of ‘superior’ western power.”
Power pushes doctrine
Doctrine founder Evans, meanwhile, is closely tied to Obama aide Samantha Power.
Evans and Power have been joint keynote speakers at events in which they have championed the “Responsibility to Protect” principle together, such as the 2008 Global Philanthropy Forum, also attended by Tutu.
Then last November, at the International Symposium on Preventing Genocide and Mass Atrocities, Power, attending as a representative of the White House, argued for the use of “Responsibility to Protect” alongside Evans.

THE ROLE OF ALEX JONES IS TO SEPARATE THE NEW WORLD ORDER FROM ITS ROOTS IN THE PLO, IN ISLAM AND ULTIMATELY IN THE CAPITALIST CRISIS
That is particularly clearly explained by Aaron Klein
Thus the role of this whole layer which is so hostile to Israel and the Jewish homeland is explained. This needs further work, especially the role of Tutu and Robinson as well as Soros. The issue is complex and can only be tackled by dealing with all its aspects
Jones is unable to do this because he is a supporter of Iranian and PLO antisemitism
THE ARTICLE ABOVE BY KLEIN IS MISLEADING IN ONE SENSE. IT SEPARATES THE NEW WORLD ORDER (Responsibility to Protect) FROM ITS ROOTS IN THE HOME ECONOMIES. AND IN SPECIFICALLY THE WORLD ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL CRISIS OF THE WHOLE, WORLD WIDE CAPITALIST SYSTEM, NOW NOT JUST WORDS BUT A FACTUAL REALITY!
IN OTHER WORDS OBAMA AND CAMERON GO TO WAR BECAUSE THEY ARE IN CRISIS AT HOME
Hence as Aaron Klein separates this new deadly doctrine “responsibility to protect” from its roots in the economic crisis of capitalism, hence also it separates the from the moves towards dictatorship at home and the emerging fascism of the state
These moves towards dictatorship are seen in unusual ways. Without a mandate the PSOE Government ban smoking in bars and restaurants, and also comically lower the speed limit from 120 to 110 k per h. This measure saved hardly any fuel at all.
In Britain sports enthusiasts buying tickets for the 2012 Olympics in London run quite a risk of death at the hands of Islamists. Hence we can expect the news to be managed such as the Government has done with the murder of the young British girl Charlene Downes, LLEGEDLY BY Muslims in Blackpool, Britain.
In the face of deep crisis at home Cameron and Clegg need their heroes abroad. They have chosen Al Qaida against Gadhafi in Libya. It is likely they hoped for a quick victory. Due to the bravery of Gadhafi they have miscalculated on that
The responsibility to protect (RtoP or R2P) is a norm or set of principles based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege, but a responsibility. RtoP focuses on preventing and halting four crimes: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing. The responsibility to protect can be thought of as having three parts.
- A State has a responsibility to protect its population from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing (mass atrocities).
- If the State is unable to protect its population on its own, the international community has a responsibility to assist the state by building its capacity. This can mean building early-warning capabilities, mediating conflicts between political parties, strengthening the security sector, mobilizing standby forces, and many other actions.
- If a State is manifestly failing to protect its citizens from mass atrocities and peaceful measures are not working, the international community has the responsibility to intervene at first diplomatically, then more coercively, and as a last resort, with military force.
In the international community RtoP is a norm, not a law. RtoP provides a framework for using tools that already exist (like mediation, early warning mechanisms, economic sanctioning, and chapter VI powers) to prevent mass atrocities. Civil society organizations, States, regional organizations, and international institutions all have a role to play in the operationalization of RtoP. The authority to employ the last resort and intervene militarily rests solely with United Nations Security Council and the General Assembly)
