As the US and British military assault on Fallujah escalates, a former top foreign policy adviser to PM Tony Blair has voiced serious concerns about the continuing Iraq conflict. He has also declared that environmental disaster is a greater global threat than terrorism. Sir Stephen Wall, who is now principal adviser to Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, said yesterday that ‘it should not have been impossible to reach a common European view on Iraq before Britain became committed to an unstoppable course of action on the part of the United States.’ Speaking at the prestigious Royal Institute for International Affairs in Chatham House, London, Sir Stephen went on: ‘I believe that, in Britain, we allowed our judgement of the dire consequences of inaction to override our judgement of the even more dire consequences of parting from the rule of law. He added: ‘We have to be firm in our adherence to that rule of law, even if it sometimes means parting company with the United States and adhering to the United Nations as the only defence against the rule of might that we have.’

 

What about the Law of God? He says:

 

1Cr 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  

1Cr 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Nightmare stories kept coming out of Iraq for decades. It was no secret.

Mat 25:42 I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

Mat 25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Mat 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Mat 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Mat 25:41 Then shall he say unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.

Hbr 13:21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

2Th 1:12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Mat 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Tts 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. [with the Scriptures] Let no man despise thee.

Didn't those bishops take on the responsibility of defending the Son of God when they perched themselves upon His Holy Reputation?

Psa 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy Word.



The BBC’s chief political correspondent, Andrew Marr, last night described Sir Stephen’s intervention as ‘very significant indeed’.
 

Before taking up his post with the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales Sir Stephen Wall was UK Permanent Representative to the European Union. He was also head of European Secretariat in the Cabinet Office.

His address, ‘The UK, the EU and the United States: Bridge, or just Troubled Water’, signals further fall-out among senior advisers with the Blair government’s Iraq policy. Last April the current head of legal studies at Chatham House, Elizabeth Wilmshurst, resigned her position as Deputy Legal Adviser at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office because she disputed the legality of the war.

 

Why not go after the cause of what is provoking the war? [which has been brewing for centuries]

004.094 O ye who believe! When ye go abroad in the cause of Allah, investigate carefully

 

009.029  Fight those who believe not in Allah [the allah who calls the Son of God an abomination} 019.089 ]

 

008.067 It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war [slay them] until he hath thoroughly subdued the land.  

 

002.191 Slay them wherever ye catch them


047.004 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks. [Behead them - which includes all who believe in the Son of God]

 

And what about international - 'rule of law' - ??? [This is the business of those 'bishops' - because they made it their business - and they have shoved it aside]


In his lecture Sir Stephen highlighted the serious rift between Europe and the US on social as well as political matters. ‘[The] distaste for George Bush’s America … is about a sense that we have less in common in our view of society and social justice now, than in the past. And it is also about differing views on the rule of law.

Widening his critique, he declared: ‘The fact that the United States is a great democracy to whom we owe our continued survival as free nations is not, I believe, sufficient reason to give them the benefit of the doubt when they unilaterally withdraw from the Test Ban Treaty, or deny the jurisdiction of the international terrorism court, [who ever said that 'Rome Mandates' [written by catholic lawyers] should have jurisdiction over the world? God did. That is why He says:
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Jam 4:4 ] or want nothing to do with the Kyoto treaty which is a first tentative step towards tackling a threat to life on our planet much greater than that posed by terrorism.’

 

1Jo 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

 

Mar 13:14 When ye shall see the abomination of desolation {without life - "He that hath the Son hath life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" - Palestine denies the Son] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, [The name Israel is His heritage} Joe 3:2 ] (let him that readeth [The Word] understand)  

 

Mat 24:21 Then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

 

Isa 28:19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

 

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

 

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 

Isa 14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

 

Tts 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. [with the Scriptures] Let no man despise thee.

 

Exd 15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.  Song of Moses.  The saints 'sing' this song}  Rev 15:3 

Isa 41:26 Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous?

Isa 45:21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD?

Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret [first] unto his servants the prophets. [To prove how marvelous His Word really is]

Eze 12:25  I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass.

2Pe 1:19  We have a more sure Word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed. [Eternal Life is at stake]

2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour.

Those who profess to be the leaders of the Christians [who have been given a voice in this world] are not speaking that which the Lord commands ALL to speak: He condemned Palestine - for end times.

Mic 1:2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. [which temple ye are} 1Cr 3:17

 

Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword [Word of God] in their hand; To execute upon them the judgment [already] written : this honor have all his saints. Psa 149:9

 

Mat 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

 

1Cr 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
