The final chord of the Apocalypse sounds

"At the end of time a man from my progeny will be born, his name will be my name and his middle name will be my as my middle name. He will fill the earth with justice and harmony, and his name will be the Mahdi

Muhammad Qa'im will be one of us. He will install terror and fear in the hearts of his enemies. With the help of Allah, He will establish justice and order.

Under his leadership, the earth will unveil itself, so that all hidden treasures will be brought into the light. His empire will unite East and West. Allah will place the true religion into the hands of the Mahdi — conquering. One and all.

So tell us the sacred texts of Muslims.

Today we are approaching the arrival of the Mahdi. It is said about him that his coming will take place in the time when Dajjal will reveal himself. Who is Dajjal? He is identified by the highest Muslim authorities with the West in general, with globalization, liberalism, and American hegemony. Its manifestation can be seen as well in the racist State of Israel and NATO forces.

Islamic hadiths affirm that the Mahdi will fight against the Dajjal. He will fight against the West. In this battle he will fight alongside Christ and the Christian peoples of Ar-Rum, These real Christians are the Orthodox Christian faith. Moscow is the Third Rome. This Third Rome is to be the ally of Muslims in the End time. The liberal globalist American Dajjal is the foe.

Syria: last call

Today we are going to discuss the dramatic situation in Syria and the desperate struggle of the government of Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian people. We are going to discuss the symbolic meaning of this decisive battle and its geopolitical implications.

The conflict between pro-Western forces against the legitimate leadership of Syria is a direct continuation of the so-called Arab Spring, a series of bloody coups, uprisings, and civil wars that the West unleashed during the spring of 2010.

Part of its strategy in this is the creation of a condition of “controlled chaos”.

As a result of the Arab Spring all the political regimes that have up until now somehow resisted U.S. imperialism in the region have been overthrown and their independent leaders have been expelled or killed. Bloody chaos, terror, and fanaticism have swept the Middle East under the constructed guise of ‘democratic revolution’.

Here, geopolitics, religion, and ... eschatology are closely linked. The attack on Syria is a strategic move in preparation for the invasion of Iran. But, at the same time it is the onset of the last act of an eschatological drama.


Syria: oil factor

No matter what else is said about the causes of the conflict in Syria, there is no denying that among them is the fundamental fact of how it is connected with petropolitics and the interests of  global capital. Now let's step aside from flood of discussions about the tactics of guerrilla warfare and analysis formed of the situation with the methods of propaganda through Social Networks and hidden religious motives and look at these energy concerns.

The state of affairs of the regional powers, which are the most important players in energy politics present Iraq and Iran on one side of the conflict and Qatar and Saudi Arabia on the other. Syria lies in a strategic position amidst possible regional infrastructure projects, and trunk pipelines that could link the region of the greater Middle East to Western Europe.

Simple geography determines that Syria is in a more advantageous position for this pupose than Turkey through which the Baku–Tbilisi–Ceyhan pipeline lies. The south Caucasus is even further north and the Russian Federation has strategic interests there.

So, Syria is the only fall-back position as an alternative for a transit country. Besides having its own oil fields, Syria's leadership is quite aware of the importance of their country's geographic location.

The multipolar world. An interview with Boris Nad


The collapse of the Soviet Union and the consequent triumph of the United States, and the attempt to impose the American model at the global level open a real Pandora's box: it was a prelude to two decades of permanent instability, social and economic, military intervention and brutal wars with millions of victims, from those in the Persian Gulf to the wars in the Balkans or in the Middle East, whether by direct involvement of the global hegemon or foreign agency, for American interests.


The multipolar world. An interview with Wagnão Correia


Bipolarity has always been present in modern world history, specifically in the mythic conflict between Land and Sea, where it materialized in the antagonist pole Russia-USA, and continues to be alive, although it is not the central point of international relations anymore. This possible return to bipolarity that some analysts show, can be dispute for global power among countries that defend multipolarity and those who are against or indifferent to it. But international bipolarity, as it existed in the Cold War won’t be, in my opinion, revived. This happens because of the appearance of other poles of power and because of the enormous difference of power between Russia and the United States.

The multipolar world. An interview with Alfredo RR de Sousa


There is much talking nowadays about the emergence of the People's Republic of China as the superpower thatwould restore the bipolar model in the context of global geopolitics. Nevertheless, I believe that such a viewpoint expressesan excessively ‘economicist’ approach of the matter.  China lacks the military capability needed to match American hegemony, and we all know that relations of power are defined ultimately by sheer force. Thus, I believe that theprogressive consolidation of the links established by the SCO-Shanghai Cooperation Organization (a mutual security treatysigned in 2001 between the governments of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, involvinghigh level military cooperation between the signatory States ) soon will become one of the axes of gravity of global geopolitics, as opposed to the 'Atlanticist' block championed by the U.S.. We’ll have therefore a bipolar model integrated by multipolar actors. Observers States of the SCO, such as Iran and Pakistan, on one hand; and U.S. satellites at othercontinents besides Europe, such as Israel and Saudi Arabia, will continue to orbit around the power centers mentioned above.

The multipolar world. An interview with João Franco


I think it is very likely that a multi-polar system emerges in the next years. The weaknesses of the American society are showing day by day, and it can no longer be hidden that the liberal-capitalist system is not the panacea its propagators claimed for so many years. There are two powers that can pose a strategic challenge to America’s hegemony at the moment, and these are Russia and China. Unfortunately Europe, due to the illness of political correctness and masochism of its leadership is a dwarf in the international scene, and will never succeed whilst it maintains a subservient position regarding the United States, its major competitor for raw materials and fuels worldwide, items that Europe needs desperately for the survival of its economy.


The Last War, Gogs and Magogs of the World Government, the Russian Conquest of the Constantinople

The regime in Iran demonstrates greater integrity – religious integrity than most of the other regimes in the world of Islam. For example, Prophet Muhammad saw - Allah’s Blessings be upon him prophesized – this is his prophesy - that Muslims are going to form an alliance with Rum. It’s spelt it is pronounced R.O.O.M. – room - but the Arabic word Rum it describes Eastern Christian - Christianity when they broke away from Constantinople and they formed the Church in Rome – the Roman Catholic Church. Then you had two Christianities – one of the East - the Byzantine and one of the West which is now Rome. So the one in the East was called Rum - and in the Qur’an Allahswt refers to it as Rum. And when Muslims conquered Constantinople in a conquest which was largely shameful, uhh? and embarrassing for Islam - when they conquered Constantinople then Rum was transferred to Moscow. And so today Rum is Moscow and the allies of Moscow. So the Prophet saw prophesized that we Muslims would make an alliance with Rum. Today who is making an alliance that alliance with Rum? Who is showing religious integrity? It’s not Saudi Arabia which is allied with the Anglo- American Zionist Alliance. Rather it is Iran. And now Pakistan finally - since the sword is at its throat now – because India is lusting to attack from the East and NATO is preparing to attack from Afghanistan to destroy Pakistan’s nuclear plants and nuclear weapons and to break up Pakistan into bits and pieces – that’s their plan. Now that the Pakistani regime has realized that the moment of truth has arrived after all these years of foolishness – now they’re trying to build closer ties with Russia. Personally I think it’s too late now for them to do that.


The multipolar world. Interview with Sergio Gouvea (Brasil)


Natella Speranskaya: The collapse of the Soviet Union meant the cancellation of the Yalta system of international relations and the triumph of the single hegemon - the United States, and as a consequence, transformation of the bipolar world order to the unipolar model. Nevertheless, some analysts are still talking about a possible return to the bipolar model. How do you feel about this hypothesis? Is there a likelihood of emergence of a power capable of challenging the global hegemon?


Sergio Gouvea: I do not see the possibility of a return to the bipolar model as something likely to happen. No nation can match, or even challenge, America’s military or economic power and sphere of influence. Russia and China, which seem potentially dangerous to US’s hegemony, could not, in any way, overthrow its power. There is no global ideological basis to sustain an overturn of the situation. Globalized world has been shaped according to the United States ideal of Liberalism, since no other country has developed its own Liberal Way of Life to the extent of America, there is no serious danger of a change of actors (which would be totally meaningless, to replace a Liberal Hyperpower with another). It is already too late to try and indoctrinate the global community on a world-view other than liberalism. The very collapse of the Soviet Union shows us that such an attempt is completely out of time. 

The multipolar world. Interview with Raphael Machado (Brasil)

Nevertheless, some analysts are still talking about a possible return to the bipolar model. How do you feel about this hypothesis? Is there a likelihood of emergence of a power capable of challenging the global hegemon?


Raphael Machado: Whenever the possibility of a return to the bipolar model is mentioned the major contender for the place previously occupied by the USSR is usually considered to be China, specially because of its rising economic and military capabilities. This is a possible scenario, but it isn’t really as desirable as we could initially think, because since Deng Xiaoping’s capitalist reforms China’s economic partnership with the United States has grown stronger, as have the diplomatic contacts between both countries. Hence, a bipolar world where the poles are represented by the U.S. and China possibly doesn’t offer a real anti-globalist alternative for the oppressed peoples of the world.
