    You guys are doing an excellent job “waking people up”.. Keep up the good work.

    I disagree with Sibel with regards to British MI6 inventing divide and conquer, as the Romans have applied it way before the Brits did, and the Shia’a / Sunni divide and conquer was created and used by the Umayyad Caliphate (661–750) to make sure they turn the basic democracy that Islam had at the time into a hereditary system for the Umayyad family.

    That said, I agree with you Sibel, British Empire (and the still ruling elite) have taken divide and conquer into the the next level.. they are the best at it.. they even applied to their own people (and created the class system).. They don’t see different race or colour, they will rape and pillage everyone equally. Look at what they have done to the Scottish or the Irish, or the Welsh or even to the people north of London.

    So, I agree, the British Ruling Elite are the MOST evil in the world, and they operate below the surface.. they have mastered their trade, so to speak.

    Now… For those people who “are awake”, What is next??? I think, while there are people out there that see race and colour and different “tribes”, we will always be conquered using the divide rule… So, we need to bring down all those walls.

  2. thanks for the discussion
    don’t suppose that Orthodox bishops are any freer from coercion than politicians–an informed Orthodox clergyman tells me that to his knowledge at least 70% of bishops are subject to blackmail and other forms of control, especially in those parts of the world where the Church seems to have real power
