All eyes are on Greece and SYRIZA Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who is treading on a thin line between Greece’s bankruptcy or recovery. A Shock referendum call, persuasive speeches (for supporters) followed by dizzying capitulations (claimed by his opponents) have led to soaring international interest.
Author Stephen Lendmen is just the latest voice to point to the huge possibility, as he alleges, of an accident/assassination threatening Greece’s candid PM.
“Washington’s geopolitical strategy when bullying fails is either assassinating independent leaders, color revolutions, military coups or naked aggression,” writes Lendmen, in an unusual, for 2015, torrent of blind anti-Americanism reminiscent of the 1970s and 1980s.
Moscow-based investigative journalist John Helmer also claims that SYRIZA is on thin ice pointing to the cracks. Helmer points to the appearance of Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland as a “bad omen”. Helmer says she’s “in charge of warmaking in Europe” and points to her notorious involvement in Ukraine’s February 2014 coup.
Being a charismatic 40-year-old makes Alexis Tsipras an ideal candidate, in many … fringe political and religious quarters, as being the anti-Christ. Some Book of Revelations-based conspiracy-theory aficionados claim his agenda is to deplete Greece’s and then the world’s money value, doing away with the money system before we begin to buy and sell goods and services with the “mark of the beast”.
Another “red flag” is that he is a self-professed atheist and popular with Russia. Let’s not forget his visits to the Vatican for a proposed peace plan between Israel and Palestine. Is Alexis Tsipras the Anti-Christ and Pope Francis the …false prophet?
Still not convinced. Anti-Christ enthusiasts, strangely, point to the following statement (although most reasonable people don’t know why):
“We discussed the need for peace to return on earth, for the immediate cessation of war interventions…(I) asked him to take an international initiative for the termination of conflicts in the Middle East. Finally, we agreed that the dialogue between the Left and the Christian Church must go on. We may have different ideological starting points, however, we converge on common values, like solidarity, love for the fellow human being, social justice, and our concern regarding world peace.”
