Genocide of Christians in Angola, UN and the resistance of UNITA
The civil war in Angola, that started in 1975, continues. Text below based
on a May 2000 report by WorldNetDaily international correspondent
C. LoBaido, on the struggle of UNITA -- the anti-Communist, Christian
rebel movement of Southern Angola, which is fighting for its freedom and
independence from the United Nations and its sanctions programs aimed at
Two remarks about LoBaido's report, a very good compilation of facts
we dropped or replaced "communist" or "left wing" withNew World
he forgets (?) to mention that Angola, or more precisely a
small offshore area from Cabinda, is now supplying 7% of the oil
consumed in the United States.
One remark about the position of Russia, the backbone the resistance to
the NWO, expressed by UN ambassador Lavrov, and why Russia is still supporting
the sanctions. Some reasons might be:
Russia is not actively arming or supporting the MPLA.
since Putin took control the process of cleaning Russia from agents of
the NWO like Beresovsky & Co., has started but not yet been completed
Putin is folllowed an extremely cautious and diplomatic approach towards
Clinton & Co. The only strategic issues where it openly opposes the
NWO are the expansion of NATO to the east, the Kosovo-Serbia issue and
the war in Chechnya. With other words : the issues where the survival of
Russia is directly at stake.
Jonas Savimbi, hero of the final battle
The New Paradigm of the Western Governments (New World Order)
The new paradigm of the West towards Africa
At the dawn of the new millennium, the old flawed Christian colonial model
for Africa has been replaced. The new paradigm is the corporate, New Age
occult model. In this new model, free sex among black Africans equals mass
The new paradigm of the West towards UNITA
Under the Reagan administration, UNITA and its leader Jonas Savimbi was
held up as a standard bearer for democracy, religious toleration and freedom
in Angola. With the Soviet Union and Cuba, fighting in Angola under the
banner of Brezhnev's Doctrine -- to control the strategic mineral wealth
of Southern Africa and deny it to the West -- the Thatcher/Reagan tandem
put the force of their political powers behind UNITA.
But through the 1990's, the allegiance of the Bush-Clinton and Major-Blair
leadership of the U.S. and UK has shifted to the Marxist MPLA and the Western
oil and diamond corporations that traffic with the Angolan government.
Detailing the shift to the left wing vis-a-vis Angola and the MPLA would
take a tome. However, its major elements include the CIA sending UNITA
faulty equipment which lacked the spare parts to keep it operational, the
rise of Executive Outcomes under former ANC leader Nelson Mandela, the
late Princess Diana's "land mine" crusade in Angola and President Clinton's
Order in which the U.N. and DeBeers diamond cartel was given free hand
to deny UNITA the export of diamonds. UNITA uses diamonds to fund its guerrilla
war against the MPLA.
Since 1975, UNITA defeated a mad plethora of invaders of their land
In the past quarter century UNITA, (with some help from the former rugged
and elite South African-Afrikaner Defense Force, rogue U.S. Special Forces
and the Reagan Administration) have defeated a mad plethora of invaders
of their land.
These invaders include the Soviet Union, North Korea, the East Bloc,
50,000 Cuba mercenaries, the U.N. Army, Executive Outcomes (called Apartheid
attack dogs by dissidents in Sierra Leone, a former EO stomping ground),
the betrayal of the Afrikaner government as well as attacks by neighbors
Namibia and Zimbabwe. The forces of the latter were trained by North Korean
Special Forces, who are today digging in Congo for the uranium they'll
need to build an atomic bomb.
United Nations, a Western tool, trying to destroy the UNITA
Sanctions in the past (1993-1998)
Sanctions are nothing new for UNITA. Consider the following.
In September 1993 the UN passed sanctions to limit the flow of arms, military
equipment and fuel to UNITA, after Savimbi rejected the rigged U.N. mandated
elections in Angola. During this election, top UNITA leaders were lured
to Angola's capital by the U.N. under promises of safe passage, only to
be assassinated by the MPLA.
In October 1997, UNITA's refusal to abide by the provisions of the Lusaka
Protocol led to more U.N. sanctions. Again, Savimbi had declined to surrender
control of Southern Angola to the MPLA. These sanctions put restrictions
on the ability of UNITA leaders to travel around the world, or even to
Further sanctions were imposed by the U.N. in July 1998 aimed at controlling
UNITA's diamond trade and mining industry. President
Clinton's anti-UNITA Executive Order and the wishes of the DeBeer's
Diamond Cartel (who funded Executive Outcomes and covet UNITA's diamond
mines) were the real powers behind this particular U.N. sanctions resolution.
UN Resolution 1295 - A new kind of anti-UNITA sanctions
The U.N. is working overtime to destroy Africa's top Christian, anti-NWO
rebel group -- UNITA. Recently, the United Nations Security Council voted
unanimously to push for additional sanctions on UNITA.The reason for the
latest sanctions against UNITA -- known as Security Council resolution
1295-- is obvious. The U.N. is frustrated that the Christian patriots in
Southern Angola have been fighting for their freedom since 1975.
The recent anti-UNITA sanctions were drawn up by a so-called "Panel
of Experts" anointed by the U.N. Security Council. The nine researchers
on the panel launched a painstaking six-month investigation into UNITA's
banking, petroleum, diamonds, and arms activities in funding and conducting
their war for freedom against the Cuban-Russian installed Marxist MPLA
regime of Angola.
The Security Council had requested the Secretary-General to establish
a monitoring mechanism composed of up to five experts to collect relevant
information and investigate relevant leads relating to any allegations
of violations of measures in Council resolutions in regard to UNITA.
These include any relevant leads initiated by the panel of experts.
The Secretary-General reported that the requirements of the monitoring
mechanism for UNITA's activities comprising five experts for six months
was estimated at $710,600. It was recommended that the General Assembly
approve that charge against the provision of $90.39 million for special
political missions in the 2000-2001 programmed budget.
Recently, Britain's Foreign Office Minister, Peter Hain said, "The time
has come for the international community to face up to its obligations.
It is no good putting our hands up in the UN for sanctions against UNITA
and then taking no action while citizens in our countries make money out
of misery. That is simply hypocrisy. We must all rigorously implement and
enforce sanctions. The time has come to stamp on the sanctions busters.
That is why the report of the Expert Panel is so vital. The full force
of law must be brought to bear on those responsible ... we have to cut
off Savimbi's means to wage war."
Of course Mr. Hain did not quote from the April 29, 1998 Amnesty
International report on the MPLA which stated, "Government [MPLA] soldiers
tortured and killed unarmed civilians suspected of
supporting armed separatists in the Angolan enclave of Cabinda while the
government looks the other way."
The latest U.N. sanctions against UNITA are, according to a U.N. spokesman
interviewed by WorldNetDaily, "A new kind of sanctions. You've heard of
'Smart Bombs'? These Smart sanctions are not like the blanket sanctions
on Iraq and Libya. They are precise and strategic. They are aimed at stopping
UNITA's ability to make war, and to punish countries that arm and or trade
The nations accused of helping UNITA in her war with the Marxist MPLA
government of Angola -- namely Bulgaria, Ukraine, Ivory Coast, Morocco,
Gabon, Burkina Faso, Uganda and Rwanda -- have openly questioned if Robert
Folwer, the point man on the U.N.'s anti-UNITA diamond sanctions committee
is compromised by his close ties to Canadian diamond mining interests.
Before delving into the specifics of the sanctions, it would be wise
to look over the scorecard of the nations fighting out the Cold War in
Africa to a bloody finish.
The anti-Communist countries and elements include
UNITA, South Sudan, Rwanda (led by the Tutsis, victims of the Hutu genocide)
and Uganda. Allies currently assisting UNITA in various forms include Bulgaria,
Togo, Ivory Coast, and Afrikaners from South Africa, Belgium, Morocco,
the Ukraine and Burkina Faso.
the other side are Namibia, ANC-led South Africa, Zimbabwe, Angola's MPLA,
Mozambique, Congo (formerly pro-West Zaire), the Islamic government of
Khartoum, Sudan, the United Nations, North Korea, the U.S. State Department,
Western banks, the DeBeer's diamond cartel, Chevron, Texaco, Shell, the
CIA, British government, MI-6 and Executive Outcomes.
UN Resolution 1295 - summary
After analyzing the 18 page U.N. brief on the anti-UNITA sanctions, this
writer had learned that the sanctions themselves would basically do the
Force Western and African countries to deny and cancel the passports issued
to UNITA members. While UNITA no longer operates formal "embassies," Burkina
Faso, Togo, Côte d'Ivoire, Zambia and Rwanda provided actual support
and protection for UNITA representatives and easy access for senior UNITA
officials wishing to travel there. In the United States, France, Belgium,
Portugal, Switzerland and South Africa, among others, UNITA is able to
maintain an "unofficial" representative presence with the knowledge, but
without the direct support, of the host government.
Expose the control of the functions of UNITA offices overseas. The UNITA
office in Belgium is connected with its diamond interests; the office in
Portugal acts as a link with various Angolan and Portuguese interests in
the country; the office in New York lobbies on behalf of UNITA and monitors
developments at the United Nations; the office in France sustains important
commercial links for UNITA; and the office in Switzerland has in the past
been an important source of medical supplies for UNITA.
Confiscate all UNITA assets possible to the four corners of the Earth.
UNITA-controlled assets whose provenance cannot be traced to a lawful source
should be forfeited, and used to benefit the people of Angola. A substantial
bounty or "finders' fee percentage" could be given to those who trace,
track down and identify UNITA assets that are subject to sanction.
Call for the deployment of another United Nations Peacekeeping Mission
Pressure Belgium to stop selling UNITA-mined diamonds.
Call for sanctions on nations that arm UNITA. Support should be given to
the Ukrainian idea of bringing together Eastern European arms suppliers
to formulate proposals on how to stem the illicit flow of arms into Angola.
Call for sanctions on nations that trade in oil and diamonds with UNITA
Prevent Bulgaria from joining NATO and the European Union.
Prevent Togo leader Gnassingbe Eyadema from taking up the Chairmanship
of the Organization of African Unity in June of this year.
Call for INTERPOL to track and arrest UNITA leaders and various arms and
diamond dealers who trade with UNITA. These include Marcelo Moises Dachala
and Ambassador Karriça. "This action should be accompanied by the
maximum possible publicity, and Karriça's apprehension should be
a top international law enforcement priority," according to the U.N. report.
An hoc committee should be established consisting of oil industry and government
representatives to create a database with details of fuel sales to UNITA.
A DNA-type analysis should be conducted of fuel samples obtained from petroleum
industry suppliers in the SADC region and a database created to help evaluate
fuel obtained or captured from UNITA to find its origin.
As for those nations who traffic in UNITA-mined diamonds, the report states:
In cases where the legal origin of rough diamonds cannot be established,
the diamonds should be forfeited. Forfeiture penalties should include any
collateral assets associated with the suspect diamonds.
Traders and other individuals or companies found to be breaking the sanctions
should lose their registration, be placed on an industry blacklist and
barred from any involvement in the diamond industry worldwide, and be made
subject to criminal sanctions in Member States.
Dealing in undeclared rough diamonds should be declared a criminal offence
in countries hosting important diamond marketing centers.
Spot checks should also be made in India, Israel, Britain and the United
Russia and the UN Resolution 1295
Summing up the sheer gall articulated by the words of recent and present
Communist states like Russia and China vis-a-vis U.N. Resolution 1295 is
no easy task. However, Russian Federation ambassador Sergey Lavrov has
said, "The protracted armed conflict in Angola was of most serious concern.
As a member of the three observer States for implementation of the peace
process, Russia has confirmed its position that the entire responsibility
of the continued conflict lay with UNITA, headed by Jonas Savimbi."
"It is Savimbi who is refusing to comply with the terms of the Lusaka
Agreement and the demands of Security Council resolutions. Thus, there
is a need to further strengthen the pressure on UNITA's political leadership,
primarily to halt the fighting and get back on track towards a political
Lavrov sympathized with the position of the Angolan leadership, and
today welcomed that country's Foreign Minister to the Council Chamber.
He said that given Mr. Savimbi's record of broken promises, he could have
no political future. Mr. Savimbi and his entourage had shown their indifference
to the fate of their people in their drive to satisfy their uncontrollable
thirst for power. The victims of that quest had often been helping the
country under the United Nations flag. Citizens had been held prisoner,
including a citizen of the Russian Federation who had died. The UNITA had
shown outright contempt for the will of the international community, through
its carefully premeditated policy of evading the Council's sanctions, designed
to deprive UNITA's military machinery. It was therefore of paramount importance
to strengthen effective control over the current sanctions regime.
How UNITA got its groove back
In the wake of the entire world ganging up on UNITA, one may wonder just
how the movement survives and even advances against the aforementioned
plethora of foes.
First, UNITA buys arms and pays for them in rough diamonds. Brokers
of the diamond deals arrange for arms transfers, training, maintenance
and spare parts.
Anti-communist DeBeers moles like sight holder Joe De Decker have also
assisted UNITA in its diamond deals. Between 1994 and October of 1999,
Zairean arms dealer Imad Kabir was another top diamonds-for-weapons dealer.
A man named Jacques "Kiki" Lemaire, working together with Manuel Roque,
flew arms and diamonds in and out of UNITA held territory during this time
The anti-communists in Rwanda and Zambia have also played a role is
arming UNITA and providing a conduit for Savimbi to smuggle diamonds out
of Angola. South Africa, Johannes Parfirio Parreira's air cargo company
Northern Namibian Distributors and his air charter group Interstate airways
supplied military and mining equipment.
Then there are air freight companies like Air Cess and Air Pass, operating
under the watchful eye of the courageous Victor Bout, based in the United
East-West Metals Ltd, a Ukrainian company has sold IGLA (SA-16) surface-to-
air missiles to help UNITA shoot down U.N. aircraft.
An American company called Milteks also sent UNITA ammunition via Bulgaria.
Training on the SA-6 anti-aircraft battery was provided for UNITA soldiers
Artillery, mines, APC's, AK-47's, M-16's, anit-tank weapons, stinger
missiles and other weapons of war were also procured by UNITA. These and
other weapons have also been shared by UNITA with freedom fighters in Burma,
(the Karen) and in Laos, (the Hmong) as well as with Kurds in Turkey and
Petroleum reserves have been made available to UNITA from and inside
of nations like Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Togo, Burkina Faso and Gabon.
UNITA gains diamonds through the taxing of diamond diggers, mining its
own diamonds and through granting licenses to diamond buyers to operate
within its areas of control. South African Piet Hand has helped, according
to the U.N, UNITA to move its diamonds out of Africa and into Belgium,
which is a transit point for some 80 percent of the world's rough diamonds.
Other facilitators of the UNITA diamond trade are "Johnny" Seber, David
Zollman, Imad Kabir (Emad Bakir) and Jacobus Witteveen -- the owner of
the Antwerp, Belgium diamond company "Afridiam."
UNITA avoids commercial banking channels like the plague. Savimbi recently
gave US$ 5 million in cash to President Eyadema of Togo to look after.
The President of Cote d'lvoire, Henry Konan Bedié also received
a bundle of cash from UNITA.
This is what the U.S. taxpayer is funding: the U.N., DeBeers and Clinton-sponsored
destruction of UNITA, a long-time U.S. ally, Christian and pro-West rebel
group and the last anti-Communist movement in the Southern Hemisphere.
UNITA of course is resisting surrendering its diamond and gold mines to
U.S. and UK transnational corporations.
What can freedom-loving Americans do to help American allies like UNITA,
the South Sudanese, Karen, Hmong, Zulus and Afrikaners to survive the ongoing
genocide being waged against them in their respective countries?
