Kissinger haunted by past
In the year 2001, we took our tour through the Middle East
countries including Israel, Jordan and Egypt.
It was in the middle of the Sinai dessert that we stopped
along Mt Sinai at a set of motels and slept there overnight.
Never can I forget the size of the mosquitoes that crept
under the door that night, as I left the light on, reading the book entitled, The
Trial of Henry Kissinger.
The book fascinated me as this well-known man on the
international political stage has been a headline in many world newspapers for
years, and yet there were things revealed in this book about his past, which no
doubt have made things rather difficult for him, in the light of the setting up
of an international court at The Hague.
With the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, there is little doubt
that not only Kissinger, but many other world leaders are very worried about
their part in the murder of millions of people worldwide, in countries far from
their own shores. Could this be the reason why America is not keen to ratify the
existence of an international court, to which they also would be responsible?
We quote from The Australian newspaper, 12 September
2001. The headline is: "Kissinger deserves to be haunted by his past -– If
Milosevic can be put on trial, why not a former US secretary of state?...
Kissinger earlier this year hit the celebrity-author circuit
with a treatise on the challenges to US foreign policy in a changing world. His
attempt to shape the future is an understandable foil, a strategic distraction,
because it's Kissinger's past (including the bombing of neutral Cambodia at
the cost of untold Indochinese lives, the sanctioning of Indonesia's invasion
of East Timor, and assassinations during his watch at the apex of the US
security machine) that's the problem. In fact, it may be about to ensnare
This week, in an unprecedented move, the family of a former
Chilean army chief murdered in a CIA-sponsored operation in 1970 announced plans
to launch a civil action against Kissinger in the US Federal Court. This follows
the publication of Christopher Hitchens's fiercely prosecutorial book The
Trial of Henry Kissinger, which details the case under war crimes protocols
against the man he brands an emanation of 'official evil.'....
He had catalogued a case in moral law. But would it have
any bearing on international law?....
The civil suit launched in the US Federal Court this week
turns on these events. The suit is expected to claim, with the aid of recently
reclassified government documents, that the CIA supported the kidnapping plot as
part of its larger plans to instigate a coup in Chile. Its actions eventually
bore fruit in the form of a bloody coup d'etat in 1973, which installed
strongman General Augusto Pinochet. Whether the civil suit succeeds or not, it
should cast a revealing light on the events of October 1970 and on Kissinger's
culpability in the murder of an innocent....
With Slobodan Milosevic in the dock at The Hague under
charges of crimes against humanity, territorial protection of Kissinger by the
US has become increasingly untenable...." (emphases added).
This man Henry Kissinger, sometimes labeled the Public
Relations Man for the New World Order, has been touring the world for many, many
years. Dubbed the Public Relations Man for the New World Order, he has been
involved in setting up electronic funds transfer at the point of sale in
Australia, in the years 1982-1984, the introduction of Goods and Services Tax to
New Zealand and also the reuniting of Mainland China with Hong Kong, at the time
when Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in Tel Aviv.
Never can I forget this evening when CNN showed a weeping
Henry Kissinger, telling us that he was in Mainland China and could not attend
the funeral of his friend Yitzhak Rabin, who was also involved in peace
negotiations with him.
In spite of the good things in this man's life, as with all
of us, there are things, which are not good, and there are many who would like
to judge this man for the millions who have died through the policies that he
has continued with. However, the Scripture is clear in the book of Romans 12:19:
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather
give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will
repay, saith the Lord." (emphasis added).
As one becomes older, it must be frightening for anybody who
does not know the blessing of salvation through the precious blood of Jesus, and
therefore it is clear to each man and woman born in the image of God, that there
must be a day of reckoning, and this day is coming to all of us.
There are some who have suggested that this man, although he
has had by-passes to his heart to keep him going, is still a very powerful man
on the world stage and some even consider that he may take the place as world
leader, running the Common Market, bringing peace in the Middle East for seven
years, and also, along with another man called the False Prophet, introducing
the Mark of the beast, the new world money system.
Only time will tell as to his role in the New World Order,
but we do know that God loves him as much as He loves everybody else and
therefore we should pray for him, that he will receive Christ as his Saviour,
while yet there is time.
John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
