Is a World Government on the Horizon?
By Melissa Charbonneau
CBN News White House Correspondent
December 6, 2007

CBNNews.com - President Bush is urging the Senate to ratify a treaty, supporters say, which will protect America’s access to strategic international waters and the natural resources they contain.
   
The Law of the Sea Treaty

But opponents warn the United Nation's "Law of the Sea Treaty" could be the next step to world government.

Click play to listen to Pat Robertson's comments at the end of CBN News Reporter Melissa Charbonneau's report.

The U.N. treaty governs the law of the seas - not just ocean access by military and commercial vessels - but control of natural resources from fishing rights and oil exploration to deep sea mining.
 
The 25-year-old treaty rejected by President Reagan and signed by President Clinton is being pushed by Bush. He's urging the Senate to ratify the treaty that already has 154 nations on board.

U.S. Navy Captain Pat Neher says The Law of the Sea Treaty is critical to national security and is needed to secure legal rights for U.S. armed forces to pass through key international straits.

“We're not a party. We're on the outside with a very small number of countries like Iran, Syria, North Korea, Libya,” he said.

Why are these so important?  All the worlds’ commerce goes through choke points. And if the U.S. is going to get Iraq to re-supply American troops, it needs to go through the Straight of Hormuz.

The U.S. doesn't want Iran, for example, to follow Australia's lead and use environmental regulatory control to try to assert authority over vessels carrying sustenance to American troops in Iraq.

But Senate Republicans and some conservative groups warn that the treaty surrenders American sovereignty to a U.N.-like organization, called The International Seaboard Authority, or ISA.

“It is comprehensive approach to addressing seven tenths of the world's surface and essentially turning it over to a U.N. on steroids,” former Reagan defense official Frank Gaffney said.

Gaffney says the ISA is run by bureaucrats from countries such as Cuba, China, and Venezuela, who have a record of hostility toward American interests.

“They’re people who are appointed, unaccountable, who operate in non-transparent ways. We don't elect them. They have no responsibility to us, and yet under this treaty they will have considerable ability to interfere with our lives,” Gaffney said.

Americans Could Pay a Price

The Navy says the treaty would not interfere with U.S. military activities. But critics worry Americans would still pay a price.

The treaty would require U.S. companies who want to mine the sea or drill for oil to first seek ISA permission. They must share technology, and pay fees, critics say, that would amount to a redistribution of wealth.

“The danger is once we get into this organization and submit to its dictates; once we start infusing tens of millions of dollars in terms of our annual tithing to pay for its operations, it's going to become a considerably more formidable,” Gaffney said.

And Gaffney says even if the U.S. joins the treaty, there's no guarantee other member nations will play by the rules.

“History is replete with examples in which we honor our treaty obligations and people who have nothing but contempt for treaties and international law will violate them,” he said.

Gaffney says China is already guilty of treaty violations with its aggressive actions in the South China Sea.

“We do have problems with China and reasserting rights contrary to the convention. Now, because we're not a party, we only have use of force - or ‘threat’ of use of force - in our tool kit.  What’s better for us is to have all tools available to us – including dispute resolution,” Neher said.

The Navy says ISA courts would settle disputes between nations. But without joining the treaty, America is denied a seat at the table with no vote or voice in the maritime debates.

“In the old days, Ghadafi would claim water as ‘all mine,’ and we'd have to go out there and through use of force, tell him that he's wrong. Today it's a more complex and subtle world,” Neher said.

Gaffney said, “The problem is, once we have a seat at the table, we're not going to be able to prevent bad things from happening. We will be obliged to live with whatever they come up with and we will be routinely outvoted.”

So then, is the Law of the Sea Treaty a threat to American sovereignty – or the key to U.S. security?

It's a decision that lies in the hands of the Senate as it moves to consider the decades-long debate.

Brussels plays home to conference on religious coexistence
8 December 2007 - Issue : 759

Bringing representatives from different faiths together on one platform, an “International Conference on Interfaith Dialogue towards Global Peace” unanimously passed a resolution last week “Brussels Peace Declaration on Religious Coexistence” at Peace Embassy Brussels, Belgium. Announcing the formation of a Permanent Committee for Inter-faith cooperation, comprising religious scholar’s representatives of different Faiths and Communities, NGOs and media, the conference discussed inter-faith harmony, conflict resolution combating extremism, intolerance, hatred and violence in the name of religion. Reiterating their desire to promote and protect peace, justice, human rights, equality, genuine brotherhood, tolerance and friendly interaction among cultures and religions need to cultivated, promoted and nurtured to help create an environment conducive to building peace and harmony within communities and peoples, two organisations Universal Peace Federation (UPF) Belgium and European think tank Institute of Peace and Development (INSPAD) Belgium jointly affirmed that they will work together to these goals.

Muhammad Tahir Director Welfare Education Fauji Foundation based in Pakistan told audience in his keynote address that all religions “gave us one message of peace, harmony, love and compassion.” He explained Islamic history and tolerance in other religions, and said that there are a number of basic principles and moral values that govern our dealings with other nations.

Philippe Jacques Chairman UPF said in his welcoming remarks, “We are one family under God, we have to promote understanding and tolerance between all faith and religions.” UPF will continue these efforts in future with INSPAD, he added. Amin ul Haq President INSPAD appreciated the valuable efforts and role of United Nations, UNESCO and UPF for the promotion of Inter-faith, Inter-cultural Dialogue and religious coexistence. He said, “We reaffirmed our commitment to oppose, prevent and combat terrorism and extremism in all its forms and manifestations and we also condemned the instrumental use symbols and religious, cultural or ethnical values to generate conflicts, feed wars or to justify terrorism.” Willy Fautre Director HRWF appreciated the efforts aiming at promoting tolerance and respect between various faiths around the world while Bashy Quraishy Chairman ENAR Denmark said that this is a right time for reflection for Jewish and Muslim communities. He said that EU already established a Jewish- Muslim Dialogue Forum in Europe.

Farhat Jabeen, a Muslim scholar said, Globalisation brings us the beauty of dialogue and interaction between various religions and cultures but because of misunderstanding and misinterpretationHuh  it will also become the source of conflicts, tensions, struggles and polarisation.

Nasir Zaidi Professor Bonn University Germany said, “Dialogue is need of the time, misunderstanding between religions and cultures are developing rapidly. We must accept and respect all religions and cultures.” Ingmar Jurgen Metthezing (Buddhist Monk) Holland said, “We saw war culture many places, mediation techniques can change into positive and peaceful thoughts.”

Joginder Singh, Sikh Gurdwara Vilvord, Brussels said, “Sikhism stands for human liberty, gender equality, fraternity, universalism, freedom of conscience, social justice and dynamic power.” Tahir Tabassum, Executive Director INSPAD said that prophets and messengers of all faiths and religions give us the teachings of peace, stability and integrity.

 European Parliament president calls for bigger parliamentary role in EU-Africa strategy
2007-12-08 21:27:44

Major topics set for 2nd EU-Africa summit   

    LISBON, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- European Parliament President Hans-Gert Poettering on Saturday called for a bigger role of parliaments from Africa and Europe in the partnership between the two continents.

    "I must express our disappointment at the fact that the drafting committees of the European Commission and the Commission of the African Union did not incorporate our demands into the texts which are currently before you for adoption," Poettering said at the EU-Africa summit.

    The summit, which opened here on Saturday, is being attended by leaders from 53 African countries and 27 European nations. A joint strategy mapping out the future of the EU-African relations is expected to be adopted at the summit.

    "This strategy should have a strong parliamentary dimension," Poettering said, "If we want to strengthen democratic institutions we must first of all enable parliaments to play their proper role."

    According to the joint strategy draft, African and European leaders will institutionalize their partnership.

    Poettering complained that involvement of the parliaments is "still missing" from the draft.

    All the parliaments of European and African nations must "be fully integrated into the institutional framework," he stressed.

    Poettering also called for "the right financial preconditions" to be created for the Pan-African Parliament. "It is essential to overcome the shortage of staff and funding from which the African parliament suffers."

    "Any support for the building of democratic institutions, if it is to be taken seriously, must not disregard the parliaments," he added.

World powers gather in Paris to bankroll Palestinian state

Posted Sun Dec 16, 2007 4:00pm AEDT

Major powers and key donors meet in Paris on Monday (local time) for a conference aimed at raising billions of dollars to help the emergence of a viable Palestinian state and give political impetus to the newly-relaunched peace process with Israel.

Ninety international delegations are expected at the one-day Conference of Donors for a Palestinian State, the biggest of its kind since 1996, which aims to shore up the process jump-started in the US city of Annapolis last month.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is seeking $A6.42 billion spread over 2008 to 2010 for an ambitious development plan to underwrite a promised state and tackle economic hardship in the Palestinian territories.

High-profile delegates gathering for the occasion include UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will represent Israel, which is under pressure to lift restrictions on freedom of movement in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip to allow the Palestinian Authority's plan to take shape.

Former British prime minister Tony Blair, peace envoy for the Middle East quartet - the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and the United States - is co-chair of the event along with host country France, peace-broker Norway and the European Commission.

Close to 70 countries will be represented, most at ministerial level, from the EU's 27 members to the major players of the Middle East, the Group of Eight industrialised nations, and emerging powers Brazil, China and India.

International organisations present will include the Arab League, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and European and Arab financial funds.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy will open the proceedings, at Abbas' side, with a speech at 9:30 am (7:30pm AEDT) on Monday, before handing over to French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner for the rest of the day.

At the US-sponsored meeting in Annapolis, Maryland last month, Israel and the Palestinians pledged to seek a peace deal by the end of next year, relaunching negotiations frozen for seven years.

Mr Abbas has said he is confident Paris will clinch the necessary aid - 70 per cent in budget support and 30 per cent for development projects - sending a powerful signal of backing for the peace process.

All these countries continue to show that they have money to thrown into the bottomless pit called the PA. Hamas will probably actually get most of it.

This is moving quicker than I anticipated. The world is coming together for Palestine, thus against Israel. Just as the Bible tells us.

So now Iran, and Venezuela have stopped accepting U.S. currency for oil.
Can this be the beginning of a single world currency, which will eventually lead to micro-chip currency?
If we believe God, then yes.
Here's an article on the Iranian move...

World bodies to talks on globalisation

By Hugh Williamson in Berlin
December 19 2007 02:00

Germany will today urge the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and World Trade Organisation to work better together in managing the social and environmental impacts of globalisation.

Angela Merkel, current chair of the G8 group of rich economies, has invited the heads of the three multilateral institutions, and those of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the International Labour Organisation, for talks in Berlin on creating "fair conditions for a social and open world economy".

The rare meeting aims to promote better co-ordination of initiatives to fight climate change, upgrade international social and environmental standards, and protect intellectual property rights, according to people familiar with the agenda.

They added that Ms Merkel had called the meeting because Germany had found during its G8 presidency that co-ordination was sometimes lacking, especially in areas of overlapping responsibility. The aim was not to dictate to the institutions but to promote information exchange, they noted.

As part of the initiative, the German chancellor is likely to ask the institutions to participate in a steering committee set up this year, bringing together the G8 countries with five emerging economies - China, India, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa.

The committee was launched at the Heiligendamm G8 summit in June, as part of efforts to integrate the emerging nations into the G8 discussions on managing the global economy.

Robert Zoellick, who took over as World Bank president in July, has identified the promotion of "inclusive and sustainable globalisation" as one of his priorities, while both the OECD and the ILO have welcomed the German drive for greater co-ordination, officials said.

The role of the multilateral institutions in managing globalisation is also set to be a theme of a summit next month called by Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, involving Ms Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy, German officials said.

Mr Brown said last week that "Europe must play a leading role in reshaping the international institutions" in order to create a "more inclusive globalisation".

Improving protection of intellectual property rights has been a focus of Ms Merkel's G8 presidency, amid fears that Germany will lose out economically unless China and other emerging economies crack down harder on such abuses.

Mexico to use biochip to control illegal immigration
Posted : Fri, 28 Dec 2007 08:50:05 GMT
Author : IANS

Mexico City, Dec 28 - Mexico's National Migration Institute (INM) has said it will introduce electronic registration for foreigners entering the country through the southern border to curb illegal immigration.

In a communique, the INM Thursday said Biochip implants would be used to control the entry of workers and visitors from Belize and Guatemala from March 2008, Spanish news agency EFE reported Friday.

The implant will replace the currently used local pass, which can be easily modified.

The biochip ID will allow total electronic registration of entries and departures, officials said.

The INM said a migration form for local visitors will be issued to residents of regions near the border with Guatemala, while the migration form for border workers will benefit workers in the area bordering Belize and Guatemala.

In 2006, Mexico nabbed 200,000 people trying to enter illegally through the southern border, according to INM figures.

Muslim religious leaders accept Pope Benedict's talks offer

Dec 28, 2007, 13:44 GMT

Rome - A group of 138 prominent Islamic religious leaders who are championing improved relations between Muslims and Christians have accepted an invitation by Pope Benedict XIV for a meeting and have suggested dates to prepare for such talks.

'In a letter to (Vatican Secretary of State) Cardinal Tarciso Bertone, we suggested a meeting could be held in February or March, to organize an audience with the Pope,' Yahya Sergio Yahe Pallavicini an Italian imam and who co-signed the letter, told Deutsche Presse- Agentur dpa on Friday.

The letter by the group of Muslim leaders which is headed by Jordan's Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal was handed over to the Vatican's Nuncio or ambassador in Jordan's capital Amman on December 12, Pallavicini said.

Vatican Radio announced Thursday the letter had been received, but did not mention any dates for the proposed meeting between representatives of the Muslim leaders and Holy See officials.

In their letter the Muslim leaders also noted they were 'encouraged' to make their proposal following the historic meeting in November between the pontiff and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah.

The meeting at the Vatican marked the first between a pontiff and a Saudi monarch who traditionally also holds the Islamic title of Custodian of the Holy Mosques of Mecca and Medina.

The group of 138 Muslims, under the auspices of an Amman-based non-governmental organization headed by Prince Ghazi, the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought, first reached out to Christian leaders with a letter in October.

The letter addressed to Benedict but also to the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, the heads of the Lutheran, Methodist and Baptist churches, the Orthodox Church's patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I and other Orthodox patriarchs, was widely viewed as a breakthrough in Muslim-Christian relations.

Stressing that Muslims and Christians made up more than half the world's population, it identified their relations as 'the most important factor in contributing to meaningful peace around the world.'

In a November 19 letter signed by Bertone, Benedict thanked the Muslim leaders for their initiative and invited the group to engage in further dialogue with the church.

The pontiff who leads the worlds 1.1 billion Roman Catholics also said he wished to invite Prince Ghazi and 'a restricted group of the signatories of the open letter' to the Vatican to meet him for talks.

Benedict hurt the feelings of many Muslims when in a September 2006 speech in Regensburg, Germany, he appeared to associate Islam with violence. But the pontiff has since worked to heal relations.

Benedict said his Regensburg remarks had been misinterpreted and apologized for the response they provoked, including violence in several countries.

The pontiff's subsequent visit to Turkey where he prayed in Istanbul's Blue Mosque and his meeting with King Abdullah have since improved his standing with Muslims.

A number of articles are beginning to appear on the Internet suggesting that the current Islamic-Pope Benedict controversy may soon be resolved by a coming peace plan that will be initiated by the Roman Catholic Mary, the Queen of Peace. This plan would be mutually agreeable to Rome and Islam.
