Javier Solana, the High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy, has stated that the cultural East-West divide has grown significantly since the Pope's remarks about the prophet Mohammed last fortnight. The comments came as Javier Solana, along with many other leaders and influential people attended former President Bill Clinton's conference on world issues. President Bill Clinton, who has New World Order ambitions, was originally set on becoming the next head of the United Nations. Regarding the growing divide between Islam and the rest of the world, Javier Solana has stated it may be necessary for ties to be established between civilizations in order to prevent the gap becoming a gulf.
Quote: "Solana further said: “The divide that persists in the world is more profound than we think, and we better be aware of that. It’s not getting smaller, but growing.” He also warned listeners that Muslims should not be provoked, even for the sake of free speech and open thought. Noting that governments could take action to prevent the divide from growing further, Solana stressed that this might not be enough, and civil society elements should assume a role to establish ties between the civilizations.
And it's not the first time Javier Solana has become involved in trying to bridge this East-West divide. During the Mohammed cartoon crisis, Javier Solana personally toured Middle East countries appealing for calm and apologizing for any offence caused. He was blasted by the Netherlands government for doing so on behalf of those who were not responsible for the publication of the cartoons. And the latest escapade for our friend Solana has taken the form of the Iranian nuclear crisis, in which he presented Iran with the incentive package, personally representing the Six Nations that agreed the offer. Once again, Solana was blasted by those he supposedly represents, this time for an air of secrecy about the whole event. But it seems everyone is willing to trust Javier Solana, the man who is all things to all people...
Quote: "For his part, Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing stressed peaceful and political solution of Iran's nuclear issue and underlined his country's decisiveness to find a diplomatic solution to the issue. He stressed the point that Beijing has full trust in Solana himself and whatever he does.
I wonder how long it will be before ultimate trust will be put in a man like Javier Solana. The Bible states that one day a man will take the reigns of power who will be a flatterer (Daniel 11:21), a political genius (understanding dark sentences - Daniel 8:23) and a military mastermind (Daniel 8:24-25). Of him it shall be boasted, "Who can make war with the beast?", Revelation 13:4. He will deceive the people and be destroyed by the Lord at His Second Coming. Are you saved? If the Lord came tonight to take those who are saved to heaven, would you be ready to go?
