The Alliances-2: Major Alliances in The World Today

May 19, 2011

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization  (SCO)
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization brings together almost half the world’s population, several members have nuclear weapons, many are big energy suppliers, and it includes some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. The SCO emerged from the wreckage of the Soviet Union in 1996 and originally sought to provide social and economic cooperation between its members. Today, its members are Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. In addition to Iran, Pakistan, India, and Mongolia are observer nations. A common thread running through the June 16, 2009 Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in the Urals city of Yekaterinbur , and the Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) meeting which followed it, was discussion about a new world order less dependent on the United States. Medvedev told a news conference that existing reserve currencies, including the U.S. dollar, had not performed their function and said it was time for change. “We are likely to witness the creation of a supranational reserve currency…which will be used for international settlements”, Medvedev said. “The existing currency system is not ideal”.

BRIC
The BRIC bloc brings together four of the world’s largest emerging economies, representing 40 per cent of the world’s population and 15 per cent of global GDP. The BRIC nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China have called for reform of international financial institutions, sweeping changes to the United Nations to give a bigger role to Brazil and India, and a “stable and predictable” currency system, according to a draft communiqué. On June 16, 2009, the leaders of the BRIC countries held their first summit in Yekaterinburg, and issued a declaration calling for the establishment of a “multipolar world order”, diplomatic code for a rejection of America’s position as the sole global superpower (timesonline.co.uk online posting June 17, 2009). Their goal: the establishment of a “multipolar world order”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRIC

The Organization of the Islamic Conference
In 2009 The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) launched a year-long media and publicity campaign to celebrate its 40-year anniversary. The campaign highlights the OIC as an entity that serves the aspirations and expectations of the peoples of the 57-member states and Muslim communities across the world as well as OIC achievements during the past 40 years since its establishment in 1969. There are 57 nations in the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). They constitute the most powerful bloc in the United Nations today. And they side with the regime in Khartoum. Russia and China, members of the U.N. Security Council, have made investments in Sudan’s oil fields and sell arms to Sudan’s military. Those interests override any humanitarian concerns. The members are: Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain , Bangladesh, Benin, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Comoros , Côte d’Ivoire, Djibouti , Egypt, Gabon, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana , Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Maldives , Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palestinian Authority, Qatar , Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Suriname , Syria, Tajikistan, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Yemen.

The Group of 20
The Group of Twenty (G-20) Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors was established in 1999 to bring together systemically important industrialized and developing economies to discuss key issues in the global economy. The inaugural meeting of the G-20 took place in Berlin, on December 15-16, 1999, hosted by German and Canadian finance ministers. Its current members are: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico. Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, The United States, and The European Union. The G-20 is the premier forum for international economic development that promotes open and constructive discussion between industrial and emerging-market countries on key issues related to global economic stability. By strengthening the international financial architecture and providing opportunities for dialogue on national policies, international co-operation, and international financial institutions, the G-20 helps to support growth and development across the globe. In June 2009, the G-20 came to historic agreements in London, some of which could have far-reaching implications for the governance of the global economy. In “the Communiqué” they state: “We face the greatest challenge to the world economy in modern times; a crisis which has deepened since we last met, which affects the lives of women, men, and children in every country, and which all countries must join together to resolve. A global crisis requires a global solution” (londonsummit.gov online posting). Gone are the days when the rich countries make the rules and everyone else follows. The official G-20 website can be found at: http://www.g20.org/index.aspx.

The Group of 8
The Group of Eight (G-8) [formerly G6 and G7] was created by France in 1975 for governments of the six richest countries in the world: France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In 1976, Canada joined the group. In becoming the G8, the group added Russia in 1997. The G-8 agenda: respond to the global economic and financial crisis; boost to growth on a more solid and balanced basis, define new shared ground rules for economic activities; help weaker sectors of society in both industrially advanced and poorer countries; eliminate deregulation of world trade; eliminate protectionism; and to resolve crises in food security and safety and the struggle against climate changes. The official G-8 website can be found at: http://www.g8italia2009.it.

Conclusion:
The world is changing and changes are happening so fast that one can’t keep up. Daily newspapers and online websites that track world news give hour by hour and even minute by minute updates. Although each group tackles world wide conditions in a different manner, one common thread can be seen in the goals and purposes of each of these groups: the institution of a new world order and a one world governing body. Each group, in its own way, helps to turn the heart of man away from God and towards a human solution.

Once the final world government is formed, the question must be asked: How much longer do we have before Christ returns?

  1. Hi Dilpreet,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Indeed, if I were to write this blog today, I would not use the word “God”, but would instead use the words “Yahweh / Yeshua”.
    By the same token, I now ask how much longer before the imminent return of “Yeshua Ha’Mashiach” rather than “Christ”.

    I find that using the original Hebrew names leaves no doubt about which God or which Christ is being mentioned.
    Perhaps some day I will go back and edit last year’s posts and correct this deficiency.

    May Yeshua Be a Blessing To You,
    Prof J

    I must admit that I found this article extremely uplifting, unbiased, well written as well as interesting, and I am looking forward to reading more from your website. My only concern lies here: The last 2 sentences in your article: ” Each group, in its own way, helps to turn the heart of man away from God and towards a human solution.

    Once the final world government is formed, the question must be asked: How much longer do we have before Christ returns?”

    It makes me wonder if what you are doing is challenging God, or just working on a world where humans can stand on their own two feet without the constant need for spiritual aid? Our hearts don’t need to be turned away, but our minds do. When one constantly begs for spiritual advice in their mind during a test, an interview, a meeting, a date, etc. God is blamed when they fail to focus on the task at hand. If God is kept in our hearts and not our minds and we put in 100% effort everyday then we can truly focus on the tasks at hand as well as be able to rest our heads peacefully at the end of each night.

    There is no doubt that I find this article very pleasing on various levels, and I too am working towards the same goals as it seems that the rest[most] of the world is, but I don’t believe that there is a need to cut out God and spiritual aid from our lives completely. I believe, and hope; one day the entire world including the poorest of countries will be able to stand on our on two feet without the need of spiritual aid.

    Of course poverty, wars, crime and violence are major issues in our society today, but there are more than just these we face and yet still ignore. Food is one of the major concerns that needs to be looked at. There are already McDonalds and other processed foods in countries that are not yet fully developed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:McDonaldsWorldLocations.svg). Processed food in general needs to be put to an end as hard as life may seem without it. Without going too far in-depth I have been on a diet for the last few months, my mind has become sharp and focused, I wake up and sleep smiling, and most importantly I feel humbly human. Of course once in awhile a treat is needed, but I plan on this lifestyle until my soul leaves my body. I also try to preach this lifestyle onto others and so far have done so successfully, with positive results, if i may add. Recently I have noticed a commercial on television that mentions “if people start eating like humans, then maybe they’ll start feeling more like humans”. We are humans, we need to start eating what God intended us to: lean meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, berries, some dairy and so on. Believe me when I say that one major step towards all of our goals is in our diets. You will look and feel (mentally and physically) like a brand new human being.

    To conclude, and at the risk of sounding naive, I believe that we will truly start to see how proud God becomes if we can, as a whole, behave more humbly and more like humans were intended to live. Furthermore, we need support each other, and forget about blaming our ancestors or other people and let go of the hatred so we can work. There is no use hoping, it is up the people of today to push ourselves 100% and a little extra each day so the children of tomorrow will receive the love they deserve from Humans and God alike. We have to stand on our own two feet and perhaps then, and only then will we see how much God truly loves us.

    I am Sihk, and I strongly believe in God, religion and family after a self-induced difficult childhood which changed me into a strong believer and made me realize how powerful God and a family can be, and perhaps more importantly how lucky I am to have been included in both a religion and a family. Life truly is a gift; but something we all heartily need to work on for a better tomorrow. Perhaps many would argue it is yet an imperfect one, but nonetheless it is blatantly a beautiful life that should sincerely be cherished until we meet our maker.

    I wish you all the best,
    DD.
