When Theodor Herzl first muted the idea of a Jewish State in 1897 at the World Zionist Congress in Switzerland, even the most passionate Zionists of that time thought he was mad.
He didn’t immediately get support of the world ZIONISTS and, very significantly, the Orthodox Jews who had been for centuries at that time properly settled in Palestine and well assimilated into Arab life NEVER supported the move even till the state of Israel was finally borne in 1948 and remained so till this day!
All the time the Jews were in their violent hide-and-seek confrontations with the Palestinians, the Orthodox Jews stayed neutral, never believing what was playing under their noses!
Even in Germany, up till the time Hitler’s powerful network rounded up millions of German Jews, there were many who could easily have left the country long before the catastrophe but because they lived in denial, because they just couldn’t believe such a thing will ever be, having being well assimilated into Germany for several centuries, they got caught. Very important men like Albert Einstein got caught and could have been killed if he hadn’t been rescued by the Allied Forces!
Why am I saying all these?
We live in a country which has reached a level of ROT where all common sense have almost totally broken down. As we inch towards anarchy there are many people who are unable to see it!
Nigerians live in very laughable self-denials. When you speak of the things which are the realites some people will quickly jump in to tell you that you are a “tribalists”.
Unless you are blind, live in self-deception, utterly ignorant or naive or all of the above you will see the clear hand writings on the wall.
Right under our noses, some forces using the Zionists formats are rallying the Igbos and from the other end, some Jihadists forces are rallying the Hausa/Fulanis and these people are POSITIONING like the nodes of nuclear bombs waiting for detonation.
Lagos particularly, and the SW in general, will be the battle fields of these forces.
Right now, every other sections and ethnic groups of this country are just spectators and will ALL be forced as unwilling allies in a madness they know absolutely nothing about.
All the spate of insecurity around the country must be part of the larger plans and it is the reason it seems insurmountable.
It is just a matter of time and I think that time is very close.
This is my Pelican Brief, take it as it is.
