So how do you get the support of the world against an aggressor? You allow an horrific situation to occur, then condemn the ‘enemy’ once it does. This isn’t new. It’s happened before, it’ll happen again.
November 13, 2015
If you want a date in history to make a mark on society, you couldn’t do better (or worse) than Friday the 13th. Triskaidekaphobia is the scientific name of the fear of Friday the 13th. According to Wikipedia: “A suggested origin of the superstition—Friday, 13 October 1307, the date Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar—may not have been put together until the 20th century.” You can check out other suggestions here.
Last Friday, there were simultaneous ‘terrorist’ attacks on the ordinary people of Paris, starting at about 9:10 pm local time and lasting about 30 minutes until the (known) attackers were killed.

Who did this? and why?
When reviewing event charts, I like to see if I can identify the participants. The planet most likely to be involved in terrorist actions is Pluto. The fact that Pluto was in opposition to the Ascendant until just before the attacks happened makes it the most significant in this chart.
Here’s what the Encyclopedia of Astrology has to say about Pluto: “Socialogical Urge. The organized group as the instrument with which to amputate parasitic growths on the body politic, in order to reconstruct society along more altruistic lines… Plutonian doctrines calculated to bear fruit through the succeeding generation; total disregard for constituted authority or vested rights, except as administered for the good of all; and even at its worst, more likely to be activated by a sense of righteous indignation on behalf of society than by personal vindictiveness.”
OK. This seems to turn everything on its head. If the purpose was to create a revolution of sorts, this has been very effective.
ISIS claims responsibility
The Islamic State was set up in theory to create a Caliphate defined by Wikipedia as a “form of Islamic government led by a caliph (Arabic: خَليفة khalīfah)—a person considered a political and religious successor to the Islamic prophet, Muhammad (Muḥammad ibn ʿAbdullāh), and a leader of the entire Muslim community.”
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant declared its governmental structure a ‘caliphate’ on June 29, 2014 after taking control of large swathes of territory in Syria (which for a prolonged period of time comprised over 50% of that country) and Iraq. Nevertheless, it is known by much of the Muslim world and Muslim scholars to be an illegitimate caliphate within the basis of Islam.” (Wikipedia)
The Sultan of Egypt, Saladin, succeeded in removing the Crusader knights from Jerusalem in the 12th century. This is where the reference to Crusaders comes from in the ISIS communications.
“In Islamic eschatology, the Mahdi (Arabic: مهدي,(or Imam Mahdi): mahdī ‘guided one’) is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will rule for seven, nine, or nineteen years (according to differing interpretations) before the Day of Judgment (yawm al-qiyamah / literally, the Day of Resurrection) and will rid the world of evil.” (Wikipedia)
France had been warned by Turkey
Although it had been claimed that the Intelligence services did not know about the impending attacks on Friday, subsequent information states that Turkey had warned the French on at least two occasions.
This is what was posted today on MSN
There have been claims, as well, that the police were in a training exercise while these attacks were happening.That sounds like a familiar scenario, doesn’t it?
The response around the world
Everywhere, people have been outraged by these attacks. Some of the postings on Wikinut have provoked some very rabid comments, mostly directed at liberals for being soft on terrorism. The implication is that Pax Americana is the only thing that will keep us safe. That didn’t seem to help the world under the Republican administration in 2001, did it? Nine-eleven was used as an excuse to go to war against Afghanistan and Iraq, and the people in the Middle East have become ‘cannon fodder‘. Is it any wonder they feel the need to strike back?
No one knows for sure what happened on this past Friday the 13th. But the implication (that word again) is that someone decided to attack the French in their home territory.
Who benefits? My first instinct was to surmise that France wanted to augment their security arrangements in advance of the Climate Change Conference taking place later this month. What better way than to have some terrorists create a security nightmare that needs immediate sorting out? The emergency measures are set to expire after the conference ends: is this a coincidence? I think not.
