The Sykes-Picot Agreement: How the Krak des Chevalier caused the modern violence in the Middle East

When you visit a hospital dear reader you likely didn’t know that you were visiting a concept started by the Knights of the First Crusade—particularly in the Middle East to care for the poor and unfortunate during their conquest by Christianity against Muslim forces.  The term is derived from the Hospitallers who built one of the largest castles in the world located in present day Syria exclusively for the purpose of allowing the Crusaders to have a stronghold in the Middle East and force tribute from the surrounding area.  I have explained previously the hostilities in the Middle East which have their origin in establishing a Biblical prophecy around Jerusalem.  To review that previous article about the Middle East and the undercurrent of the present situation CLICK HERE to read it again and watch the videos.  But to understand the crux of the current trouble in that war-torn Biblical area and how Europe and the Middle East would arrive at their current hatred of each other the history I am about to convey must be understood.

Perched on a giant hilltop above an impoverished community of the extreme poor in present day Syria is the Crusader castle Krak des Chevaliers which displays the extreme amount of energy that the Crusaders where willing to expel in defeating Islam with their Christian backed philosophy.  The First Crusade (1096–1099) started as a widespread pilgrimage (France and Germany) and ended as a military expedition by Roman Catholic Europe to regain the Holy Lands taken in the Muslim conquests of the Levant (632–661), ultimately resulting in the recapture of Jerusalem in 1099. It was launched on 27 November 1095 by Pope Urban II with the primary goal of responding to an appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos, who requested that western volunteers come to his aid and help to repel the invading Seljuq Turks from Anatolia. An additional goal soon became the principal objective—the Christian re-conquest of the sacred city of Jerusalem and the Holy Land and the freeing of the Eastern Christians from Muslim rule.

The castle itself was a massive enterprise that would take thousands of laborers more than half a century to build and when concluded it was an impenetrable fortress only vulnerable to political deceit.  The castle was perched to hold off the entire Muslim aggression for centuries in their own homeland so it was built to represent Europe in the Middle East as an unmovable force that would not be eradicated.  Krak des Chevaliers kʁak de ʃəvaˈlje]) (Arabic: قلعة الحصن‎), also Crac des Chevaliers, is a Crusader castle in Syria and one of the most important preserved medieval castles in the world. The site was first inhabited in the 11th century by a settlement of Kurds; as a result it was known as Hisn al Akrad, meaning the “Castle of the Kurds”. In 1142 it was given by Raymond II, Count of Tripoli, to the Knights Hospitaller. It remained in their possession until it fell in 1271. It became known as Crac de l’Ospital; the name Krak des Chevaliers was coined in the 19th century.

The Hospitallers began rebuilding the castle in the 1140s and were finished by 1170 when an earthquake damaged the castle. The order controlled a number of castles along the border of the County of Tripoli, a state founded after the First Crusade. Krak des Chevaliers was amongst the most important and acted as a centre of administration as well as a military base. After a second phase of building was undertaken in the 13th century, Krak des Chevaliers became a concentric castle. This phase created the outer wall and gave the castle its current appearance. The first half of the century has been described as Krak des Chevaliers’ “golden age”. At its peak, Krak des Chevaliers housed a garrison of around 2,000. Such a large garrison allowed the Hospitallers to extract tribute from a wide area. From the 1250s the fortunes of the Knights Hospitaller took a turn for the worse and in 1271 Mamluk Sultan Baibars captured Krak des Chevaliers after a siege lasting 36 days, supposedly by way of a forged letter purportedly from the Hospitallers’ Grand Master that caused the Knights to surrender.

Well, of course the last remnants of the Roman Emperor operating in Europe were not going to stand for being driven from their former territory.  For the next half of a millennia they plotted amongst themselves for a resurrection of their power in the Middle East and during World War I they would have it.  Once Lawrence of Arabia had united the various tribes of Arabia to the common cause of destroying the Turks of the Ottoman Empire—promising freedom for their assistance—England and France were thinking of revenge for their previous Crusader attempts in the region—to recapture Jerusalem and gain control of Damascus the large capital near Krak des Chavalier.  It was T.E. Lawrence from England who developed the guerrilla tactics of terrorism against the Turks which were so effective in destroying train supply lines.  The psychological impact of the terrorism had defeated the long handed occupation of the Turks backed by Germany allowing the Arabs to drive them from the Middle East.  Riding on the coattails of T.E. Lawrence’s guerilla warfare tactics were the English who during that war reclaimed Jerusalem with great fanfare.

But secretly there was an agreement among the forces of diplomacy which would hearken back to the type of mentality shaped by the Roman Catholic Church centuries before during the time of the Crusades  unknown to T.E. Lawrence until the very end which pained him greatly.  The Sykes–Picot Agreement, officially known as the Asia Minor Agreement, was a secret agreement between the governments of the United Kingdom and France,[1] with the assent of Russia, defining their proposed spheres of influence and control in the Middle East should the Triple Entente succeed in defeating the Ottoman Empire during World War I. The negotiation of the treaty occurred between November 1915 and March 1916.[2] The agreement was concluded on 16 May 1916.[3]

The agreement effectively divided the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire outside the Arabian Peninsula into areas of future British and French control or influence.[4] The terms were negotiated by the French diplomat François Georges-Picot and British Sir Mark Sykes. The Russian Tsarist government was a minor party to the Sykes–Picot agreement, and when, following the Russian Revolution of October 1917, the Bolsheviks exposed the agreement, “the British were embarrassed, the Arabs dismayed and the Turks delighted.”[5]

Britain was allocated control of areas roughly comprising the coastal strip between the sea and River JordanJordan, southern Iraq, and a small area including the ports of Haifa and Acre, to allow access to the Mediterranean.[6] France was allocated control of south-eastern Turkey, northern IraqSyria and LebanonRussia was to get Istanbul, the Turkish Straits and the Ottoman Armenian vilayets.[6] The controlling powers were left free to decide on state boundaries within these areas.[6] Further negotiation was expected to determine international administration pending consultations with Russia and other powers, including the Sharif of Mecca.[6]

The Bolsheviks of course were the communists who intended to conquer the world with their Karl Marx philosophy of soulless collectivism.  The Arabs betrayed turned toward the philosophy of the Bolsheviks because of their exposure of the Sykes-Picot Agreement and to this day in the Middle East behind many of the Muslim radicals are a combination of tactics shown to them by T.E. Lawrence and the communist Bolsheviks.  They intend to reclaim the Middle East from the impact of the Treaty of Versailles conducted after the conclusion of World War I which allowed for the Sykes Picot Agreement to manifest into reality.  Now Germany who suffered greatly after the Treaty of Versailles used communism born of their philosopher Karl Marx to eradicate the rule of the Russian  Tsarist government given control of Turkey—their former partner during World War I and destroy them as a world power.  It is why to this day many hope to resurrect the Ottoman Empire with a Muslim caliphate.

To further exacerbate the Muslim world–after World War II–after Hitler had attempted to eradicate the Jews from the Holy Land now residing in Poland the long-planned Zionist possession of Jerusalem was made possible by the creation of Israel in 1947.  This was only possible because of the Sykes Picot Agreement which still held the Middle East as European occupation forces in a foreign land.  Hitler as a soldier during World War I knew what the Sykes-Picot Agreement did in the Holy Land and wanted his own revenge on behalf of Germany.  The Muslims furious of the Israel creation refused to give possession of the Temple back to the Jews.  It was well-known that the Jews sought to rebuild the Temple of Solomon for a third time.  The Muslims still hold the spot of the temple to this day essentially to prevent rebuilding the temple.  Muslims claim the Dome of the Rock as the sacred site of Abraham’s sacrifice temptation of his son and where the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven accompanied by the Angel Gabriel.  (I’m not a fan of Gabriel.  CLICK HERE to read why)    

So what’s missing from this history?

In no part of it is the United States even remotely involved—not in the Sykes-Picot Agreement, not in the Crusades or the building of the Krak des Chavalier.  Yet due to the failures of the English and French to maintain their military strength due to their adoption of socialism originally advocated by the old Bolsheviks they have called on their friends in American government to support them militarily—whether it is out of obligation through some Masonic order derived from European history, or Illuminati participation—again a secret society from Europe created during all this mess—America has been coaxed with the same manipulation from Europe that created the Sykes-Picot Agreement.  Now after Iraq and countless other follies in the Middle East conducted by America—pushed by Europe like a little brother being shoved into a fight by a weaker older brother so to defend the family name—America finds itself trying to restore the Middle East on behalf of Europe not for oil, occupation, or religion, but to maintain the intentions of the First Crusade and has failed.  The deceit at Krak des Chevalier that caused them to lose their stronghold—and the tributes gained through the Knights of Hospitallers.

Now the enemy in the Middle East are Islamic radicals driven by a communist philosophy and they are very dangerous.  Even the communists are a creation of Europe who trained Lenin to overtake Russia to soften them up for conquest by a vengeful Germany.  Lenin launched his campaign of communism from Munich and London heading to St Petersburg with the knowledge that Germany was at his back.  Communism was created by European tampering with passive aggressive rule from distant lands and the Middle East was created by the same intentions.  A quick look at the link below will show how deeply rooted communism now is in the Middle East hidden carefully behind the face of Islamic religion.   All these failures are due to Europe, that big brother and its Roman Catholic tampering through religious justification and secret society handshakes.

The global media knows that behind the Muslim radicals using the terrorist tactics of L.E. Lawrence that Islam represents the hope that through a caliphate economic communism will spread to the entire world.  So the media conducts soft reporting on the terrorist behavior.  The loyalty between communists and Islamic faith points back to the Sykes-Picot Agreement, they were fused together in 1917 forever in the wake of betrayal following the Treaty of Versailles.

The United States and its capitalism are being used as pawns by Europe to fulfill the Last Crusade against the Holy Land and allow for the construction of a third temple in Jerusalem.  The Seven Pillers of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence which is read by United States officers stationed in the Middle East will not help because Muslim radicals there are reading the same book and were actually taught by the English how to drive out foreign invaders for good—just as the Turks were years before.  The unseen force at work is communism sponsored by Germany behind the mask of Islam and it is for that reason that it goes unnamed because the intentions for those provocateurs is not to regain the Holy Land, but to spread communism to every corner of the globe depleting the United States of resources in defense of its big brothers in European partnership.  This will leave no resistance to the kind of radicalism that the Bolsheviks long hoped for.  The game being played is not the game being shown—like he Sykes-Picot Agreement in betraying T.E. Lawrence and his Arabian army driving the Turks out of the Holy Land to fulfill long-held Crusader objectives.  The real game is to spread communism adopted out of Arab loyalty to their defenders—the Bolsheviks who replaced Lawrence as their new master by revealing the truth which is so important to the Arab world.  The aims of global communism benefit.

Think about all of that the next time you visit a hospital dear reader.  At that point look at the duel serpents of the medial logo and think of Krak des Chevalier and the Knights of the First Crusade and realize that we are just as primitive now as we were then and just as naive.  (As usual, the videos above are there to provide supporting evidence.  Watch them, even though it will take much of a whole day, and you will learn a great deal which supports the text provided.)  Communism is the modern letter sent behind the walls of America to encourage surrender in the Middle East–metaphorically of course.  Behind ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood are the old revolutionary communists of Europe, and eventually Stalin driven by the same Crusader forces from the First Crusade broadcast from the castle of Krak des Chevalier.
