The January 2021 edition of EUROPE AWAKE is out. Recent additions to the book cover the topics of the Hatian Revolution, French Revolution, Illuminati, the Rothschild Banking Family and a long history of Germany leading up to the first world war. The following is an excerpt.
The route of the Baghdad Railway leads over the city of Mosul, around which oil was discovered in abundance at the turn of the century. In 1912 the Ottoman government transfered the concessions to Deutsche Bank for all oil and mineral deposits 20 kilometers on both sides of the railway to Mosul as compensation for the costs involved in building the railway. For Germany, the Baghdad Railway not only opened up new market, but also the prospect of a rich oil field at its own disposal, which was extremely important for its industrial and economic development. With the new railway to Baghdad, Germany was about to open itself to Iraq as an economic area after Anatolian Turkey, through developing the old caravan routes into modern and efficient transport routes that could connect the Middle East to Europe. This devalued Great Britain’s old sea route to the Gulf of Persia and the transport monopoly that the United Kingdom and the Netherlands had so far held with their merchant fleets there. If the railway was completed to Basra and the Shatt al-Arab, Germany would find itself closer to Great Britain and could potentially offer the British transport from continental Europe to India via the middle east. That aroused suspicion in Britain which can be read in a series of lectures published as a book by the English historian Professor Laffan, who in 1917 instructed the officers of the British Advisory Corps in Serbia about the strategic background of their mission in the Balkans during the First World War. Laffan wrote: “Germany was determined to be a world power, to have a say in international politics and to rule distant continents. The basic idea was to set up a system or a chain of allied states under German rule that extends from the North Sea to the Gulf of Persia. This grand plan is best known under the catchphrase Berlin-Baghdad. If the Berlin-Baghdad railway were completed, a huge land mass would have been united under German rule, in which every imaginable economic wealth could be produced, but which would be invulnerable to a sea power. The German and Turkish armies could easily get within range of our interests in Egypt and our Indian Empire would be threatened from the Persian Gulf. […] A look at the map of the world shows the links in the chain of states that lie between Berlin and Baghdad: the German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey. Only a small strip of territory prevented the two ends of the chain from being connected. That little strip is Serbia. Indeed, Serbia was the first line of defense for our possessions in the east.” In order to accelerate the construction of a railroad for a better mobilization of the Imperial Russian troops on the western border, the Russian Empire received a loan of 665 million francs from France on February 9, 1914 in accordance with an agreement of January 30, 1914. On June 2, 1914, the train to Baghdad was ready. The last picture are tattoos that people would have during the period of the Soviet Union. Some believed that if they had a very large tattoo of the Marxist-Leninist figures that they could not be shot or killed by gulag guards and NKVD.
