The Denmark Cartoons

February 7, 2006
The derogatory cartoons
that have the Islamic world in throes of violent protests were first
published in September 2005 by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. They
were later republished in Austria in January, and then at the beginning
of February in a number of European newspapers in France, Germany, the
Netherlands, Italy and Spain.
There have since been angry and
sometimes violent protests across the Islamic world, Britain and
France. At least six deaths have been reported thus far. A hornets’
nest has been stirred with the end of the rapidly escalating crisis
nowhere in sight.
Has it all happened innocuously and accidentally or is it a deliberate attempt towards an ulterior motive?
To answer this question let us go back in time to May 2005.
four months before the crisis, between May 5 to May 8, 2005, a group of
powerful men from today’s finance, industry and politics huddled
together in the warm and cozy rooms of the 5-star Dorint Sofitel
Seehotel Überfahrt in Rottach-Egern, Germany. Outside the hotel,
private and state guards patrolled with automatic weapons and sniffer
dogs. The gray Bavarian skies rained on.
This secretive cabal of
powerful men otherwise goes by the name of Bilderberg Group (a simple
Google query will throw up thousands of results). The Bilderberg Group
is the only private international organization that Time magazine rated
10 for secrecy on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being most secret).
what do the defamatory cartoons have to do with the Bilderbergs? Let us
first have a look at the names of just some of the attendees of the May
2005 conference. These were;

of course there were the usual prime ministers and U.S. government
officials. Also present were the movers and shakers of the Western
media including media heads from almost all the countries whose press
chose to publish the insulting cartoons. The names of Messers Michael
Ledeen, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, however, must ring some
bells. (Click here for the complete list)
on the list of attendees was one Anders Eldrep from Denmark. Anders
Eldrep (sometimes spelled as Eldrup) happens to be married to one
Merete Eldrep. This lady is the managing
director of company JP/Politikens Hus (JP for Jyllands-Posten) that
published the slanderous anti-Islamic cartoons in Denmark.
Anders Eldrep is an ordinary Tom, Dick or Harry nor his wife exactly a
babe in woods not to have understood the repercussions of their actions.
Eldrep, the wife, is a former Head of Secretariat at the Ministry of
Economic and Business Affairs and Deputy Director of the Danish Energy
And Anders Elderp, her illustrious husband, is the
current Chairman of Denmark’s Oil and Natural Gas Company DONG and has
been Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Danish Finance up to the year
2001. He also has attended the last FIVE Bilderberg meetings thus far.
Interestingly, a previous editor-in-chief of 'Politiken', another of
JP/Politikens Hus's newspapers, namely Toger Seidenfaden, too was a
Now a little more about the Bilderberg Group.
In a rare interview
given to BBC, Etienne Davignon, 73, the chairman of the Bilderberg
Group and a former Belgian diplomat and European Commissioner,
dismissed claims that the Bilderberg Group is part of a global
conspiracy to rule the world by a self-selected elite of movers and
shakers. His dismissal is as natural as publicly admitting the cabal’s
sinister agenda would have been unnatural. Please read the interview to
form up your own opinion. In my judgment the sole aim of the group is
implementing a Euro-American, some say Anglo-American, blueprint of a
New World Order for the express benefit of these elites.
Bilderberg discussions are structured on the principle of reaching
accord rather than through ceremonial resolutions and voting. Such is
the power and status of the active members that if an agreement for
action is arrived at, the resulting decision is expected to be
implemented in the West as a whole.
In the post 9/11
geo-political milieu particularly, the group’s aim has been to buttress
the foreign policies of the governments of the United States and Great
Britain or, more simply, to help execute the precise formula sold
internationally by the Bush/Blair combo. This new world order, with the
group’s unflinching support, is being shoved down the collective throat
of the world citizenry under the guise of "global war on terrorism",
and of establishing "democracy", "peace", and "freedom" in the world.
Just three quotes from the lamb talk of these Anglo-American leaders make clear enough readings of their intentions;
of these troubled times [Iraq/Kuwait conflict], our fifth objective --
a new world order can emerge: a new era...We're now in sight of a
United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders." September
11, 1990 - Iraq Speech by President George H. W. Bush
"Our mission is clear: to rid the world of evil" - Pres. George W. Bush, post-Sept. 11, 2001
of the shadow of this evil [9/11], should emerge lasting good... This
is a moment to seize...let us re-order this world around us." - British
Prime Minister Tony Blair, Oct. 2, 2001 (BBC)
My questions then;
this whole anti-Islamic cartoon exercise actually nothing more than an
innocent attempt at promoting the much cherished cause of freedom of
expression on sensitive topics---anti-Semitism being disallowed, by
word or action, by law in most of the western world?
the ominous times we are in, the Muslims are deliberately being
provoked, exploiting their emotionality, into presenting one seething,
throbbing mass of foaming-at-the-mouths herd of rabid cavemen image for
their eventual annihilation? No one, after all, cries over the mushroom
clouds blotting the horizons over beastlands.
Or is the scribe being overly alarmist?
