Nearly a century ago, amidst the horror and bloodshed of World War One, British and German soldiers came out from their trenches to play an impromptu game of football in 'No Man's Land', France. The event took place on Christmas Day in 1914, and became known as the ‘Christmas Truce’. The unauthorised Christmas truce spread across much of the 500-mile Western Front where more than a million men were encamped.
The two opposing sides shared a common trait: They were all ‘Brothers in Christ’ from one and the same race, yet both sides feared their sinister military masters, who had issued strict orders that there was to be no fraternising on Christmas Day. What then dispelled the fear in the minds of men, to ignore the orders of their military commanders?
According to the testimony of the last remaining survivor, Alfred Anderson, who was only 18 at the time, the words, 'Stille Nacht. Heilige Nacht. Alles Schlaft, einsam wacht', drifted across the battlefield. To the ears of the British troops peering over their trench, the lyrics may have been unfamiliar but the haunting tune was unmistakable. After the last note a lone German infantryman appeared holding a small tree glowing with light. 'Merry Christmas. We not shoot, you not shoot.'
'I remember the silence, the eerie sound of silence,' he said. 'Only the guards were on duty. We all went outside the farm buildings and just stood listening. And, of course, thinking of people back home. All I'd heard for two months in the trenches was the hissing, cracking and whining of bullets in flight, machinegun fire and distant German voices.
'But there was a dead silence that morning, right across the land as far as you could see. We shouted "Merry Christmas", even though nobody felt merry. The silence ended early in the afternoon and the killing started again. It was a short peace in a terrible war.' Source: Last survivor of 'Christmas truce' tells of his sorrow.

The horror and conflict of WWI left 31 million people dead, wounded or missing. The war ended in late 1918 in western Europe and by 1922 in eastern Europe. The League of Nations, an inter-governmental organization founded as a result of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919–1920 (the forerunner to the current peacekeepers of the world, the United Nations), whose primarily goal was to prevent war, were unable to stop another global horror (WW2) involving more than 100 million military personnel and an unknown number of civilians. It was the deadliest conflict in history, with an estimated 60 million people killed, -- which includes 20 million soldiers and 40 million civilians. Most civilians died because of disease, starvation, massacres, bombing and deliberate genocide, -- atrocities the League of Nations promised to avoid!
One cannot help but wonder why the madness continued for so long (1939 to 1945), and what evil force was behind it all. Surely the answer must be lurking somewhere in the depraved minds of the peacekeepers? Since the United Nations officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, and adopted The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 as a common ‘standard of achievement’ for all member nations, this world has not known peace, and we are already in the year 2010!
It should be obvious by now that the efforts of the United Nations have clearly NOT been focusing on achieving world peace, but rather on the creation of unity among all nations. Now let’s stop there for a moment, --- because when people hear the words ‘unity’ and ‘peace’ it conjures up all sorts of delightful images of love, devotion, kindness, and admiration for fellow humans sharing your space, which are highly estimable traits in any civilized society, -- but unfortunately, in this current age we live in, it is all a load of hypothetical nonsense!
The real reason why the concept of unity among all nations is being propagated and why South Africa is currently hosting the 2010 Soccer World Cup, will shock most people to such an extent that their numbed-down minds will refuse to accept or understand it, no matter how persuasive the evidence may be! The UN’s many blunders in Africa over the past few years should be sufficient proof to drive the point home that peace is last on their list of priorities, -- but guess what? The majority of the population do not read news related to the economics or politics of Africa, unless it is somehow associated with the sport and pleasures that rule their brains.
In October 2009, the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, strongly urged South Africa’s 2010 FIFA World Cup organisers to grab the powerful opportunity to use the tournament to change Africa’s image. In a meeting at Mr Ban’s UN offices in New York, he told South Africa’s 2010 chief executive, Dr Danny Jordaan: “There is great power in this. It is a time to present a different story of the African continent, a story of peace, democracy and investment.” – Source: www.sa2010.gov.za
Now tell me, how can football and all the other rigmaroles of this sport (or any other sport for that matter) with its flag-waving ceremonies, noisy vuvuzelas, hysterical crowds - and all, change Africa’s image? I’m not going to answer this question, because I honestly don’t have a ‘politically correct’ answer.
What did Mr Ban Ki-moon mean when he said, “There is great power in this”? He was surely not implying that Africa as a whole, or the country South Africa and all its citizens were going to benefit from the tournament, because you don’t have to be a genius to figure out that one-and-only obvious beneficiary will be the world football governing body, Fifa, who will be raking in an expected €1.2 billion (about R12 billion) in media rights alone.
The second, notorious victors are the top-brass at the United Nations, who must surely feel very proud that their string-puppet-government (ANC), whom they have so shrewdly placed in power, are still firmly under their control, and that they are doing a brilliant job of dominating and influencing the minds of its citizens.
Where there are victors then it stands to reason that there must also be losers, -- a side that was defeated, but yet the psychology of warfare has developed exceptional techniques that make losers feel like winners, no matter how bad they have been crushed.
It can only be a highly-talented and esoteric force that can move a government to host a costly international event at the expense of its own people. Besides the fact that an estimated R800 billion allocated to infrastructure development for stadiums, roads and airports was several times greater than expenditure at the past two World Cup events, and that this enormous expenditure has displaced investment in priority projects such as health, education, and housing investment, the ANC government will undoubtedly come up with some magic formula to convince the masses that the 2010 World Cup was an absolute necessity, because unity and peace is far more important than houses, education and health. Of course the MSM will be utilized to its full potential to assist with the project of mass indoctrination, and in the end 99 percent of the population will actually believe that the sacrifices made were all worthwhile.
An extra bonus of the World Cup is that it has provided the government with necessary law enforcement tools and international ‘intelligence’ expertise, - trimmings it did not possess before the tournament. This extra bonus will of course be used to stamp out crime by brutal force using the military if needed (which is good) BUT it will also be used to manipulate, monitor, and control citizens who show no fear for authority. ‘FEAR’ is the means by which unity wil be enforced on those who have difficulty accepting it, and it has long ago become the main role of government!
Events such as the Christmas truce of 1914 will never be permitted ever again, and the human race will play football on a grand scale only when told to do so. Beautiful soothing hymns that disperse fear and encourage true unity among men will be droned out by other annoying frequencies until we learn to accept it as the norm.
As I said before somewhere on the pages of this blog, we are in for a frightening peace, an eerie sound of silence before the next round of sports begin --- It is here, I can feel it!
Some of the stats and facts related to World Cup expenditure in this posting, were obtained from an article written by guest columnist Liepollo Lebohang Pheko at www.citypress.co.za. The rest of the facts come from the hyperactive mind of Tia Mysoa.
The esoteric roots of the United Nations and their true objectives, has been published on the sister blog tia4christ.blogspot.com. The article attempts to explain why the so-called ‘Liberation of Humanity’ is in fact an evil deception. Although it’s a sad fact that millions of people have already fallen for this trickery, it is not too late to rectify the state of affairs in your heart and in your soul.
