Our Precious Elites
Where is leadership?
Istanbul: Our Prime Minister and the chief of the Military together visited a border military station between Iraq and Turkey where a few soldiers got killed by the PKK the previous week.
Both of them were kneeling down in the photos which emerged. Well, that’s something that they should have never done. A leader should stand up and show courage to the soldiers who stay and fight there everyday.
The Turkish public found the photo appalling. A few days later both the PM and the military chief were forced to make press announcements that it is normal to kneel down in such situations. Of course nobody bought the explanation.
Is it dangerous there? Yes. Snipers around? Maybe. Could you get killed or injured? Remote chance but possibly yes. But all of the risk doesn’t mean that you kneel down. They should have been brave enough to stand up as a leader would.
Another example, take a look at a picture of Gordon Brown during a visit to Afghanistan. He looks very silly. Look at his stressed face. Note that the general next to him doesn’t wear any protective gear. There are countles examples like this.
They surround themselves with hundreds of body guards, Kevlar vests, bulletproof cars, houses like fortresses. When they travel from one place to another, the whole area is cordoned off, streets are closed to traffic. There are policemen every few meters etc… Most of these measures are unnecessary.
Why do they behave like that?
To give an answer we must look at the democratic system we live in today. We go to the polling stations every few years and choose the party (candidate) we think best suited to our beliefs. But the real question is who brought those political parties/leaders before us.
Are they there because the people want them? No, they were carefully handpicked and groomed by the IMF, World Bank, Bilderbergers, CFR etc. Then the controlled media tell us how good they are day and night continuously. After a short time you have a new leader!
We only chose from the candidates that were presented to us. They are all same. Only their names and appearances are different. They are one party with two (or more) heads.
To give you an idea, our present prime minister was presented with a “Courage to Care Award” by Abraham Foxman of ADL in 2004.
After the Mavi Marmara incident why didn’t he send the award back to the ADL?
Also two of our ministers were graduated from Exeter University in England which is a well known place for recruiting and training foreign agents for MI5 & MI6. One of these guys is a deputy PM.
What a coincidence!
Look at the meetings of Bilderbergers, G-20, G-8. Every year they step up the security measures. In the last G-20 meeting in Canada the security costs were reported to be nearly 1 billion dollars. They have shut down the whole city. If our elites are so thoroughly secured from the public, and are never exposed to risks from the decisions they take, there will be endless expansion of corruption, poverty and wars.

When David Ben Gurion, from the southern Kibbutz of Sde Boker, declared: “It is in the Negev that the creativity and pioneer vigor of Israel shall be tested,” the first settlers rose to the challenge and a transfigured desert became a post-war reality.
Today, driving through southern Israel on the wide motorway that cuts through the barren landscape, what stands out is not the camels. It is the forests.
Out of nowhere, hundreds of trees planted thick—within straight, geometrical borders—come into view, only to be replaced by the dry and mono-color scenery moments later.
A forest in the desert is an awe-inspiring sight, but here it serves the same purpose–and has the same consequence–as an eight-meter high wall erected in the West Bank.
More and more, the Negev and other Palestinian sections of Israel seem to share a fate disturbingly similar to that of Area C in the West Bank. … continue
