    The Truth Behind World War I: Don't Believe the Centennial Hype and Propaganda!


    Over 35 million soldiers and civilians died in World War I


    U.S. President Woodrow Wilson address to Congress, on April 2, 1917, said: "...The U.S. had no selfish ends to enter WWI," and that the U.S. stood "for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties of small nations," However, the June 24th 1914 Concordat between the Holy See and Serbia (signed at the Vatican) despotically mandated that the Roman Catholic religion and schools for the Catholic education and indoctrination of children would be freely practiced in Serbia—and established the Archbishop of Belgrade and the Bishop of Uskub (modern-day Skopje, Macedonia). Articles 17 and 18 of the Concordat signed between Serbia and the Holy See established the right of the Roman Catholic Church to acquire legally, possess, and administer freely real estate property in Serbia exempt from taxes.


    Four days after the Holy See and the Habsburg Monarchy signed the Concordat for Serbia, on June 28th 1914, Austria-Hungary Archduke Francis Ferdinand of the Habsburg monarchy, was assassinated in Serajevo, Bosnia—in protest to the Concordat of Serbia with the Holy See. The Serbian people resented the Concordat between the Habsburg Monarchy and the Holy See.


    I will prove to you how WWI was a Holy War and the continuation of the bloody Crusades and Anglo-Catholic OXFORD MOVEMENT propaganda to reestablish the power of the Papacy--at the expense of human lives!


    Prior to WWI, Pope Pius IX and the Papacy supported the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War, and tried to divide and conquer America.[1] The United States Union helped Italian revolutionaries Giuseppe Garibaldi and Giuseppe Mazzini against the Papacy.


    The power of the Pope and the Papal States were lost in 1870 with the overthrow of the Vatican and Pope Pius IX. The U.S. relations with the Holy See lapsed after the American Civil War (until 1984 under President Ronald Wilson Reagan).


    The Habsburg Monarchy was a composite state composed of territories within and outside the Holy Roman Empire, that were united only in the person of the monarch. The dynastic capital was Vienna, except from 1583 to 1611, when it was moved to Prague. From 1804 to 1867 the Habsburg Monarchy was formally unified as the Austrian Empire, and from 1867 to 1918 as the Austro-Hungarian Empire.


    CARDINAL HENRY EDWARD MANNING (1808–1892) was ordained as an Anglican clergyman. He then converted to Catholicism and became Archbishop of Westminster in 1865, and became a leader of the Oxford Movement.


    The OXFORD MOVEMENT postulated the Branch Theory, which states that Anglicanism along with Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism form three "branches" of Catholicism. As Archbishop of Westminster England, Cardinal Manning became the de facto spokesman of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.


    Cardinal Manning was born at Totteridge, England, the third son of William Manning, a West India merchant and slave trader, who served as a director and (1812–1813) as a governor of the BANK OF ENGLAND and also sat in Parliament for 30 years, representing in the Tory interest Plympton Earle, Lymington, Evesham and Penryn consecutively.


    Cardinal Henry Edward Manning, in 1874, spoke of the only way to restore the Pope's Temporal Power;


    "There is only one solution of the difficulty---a solution, I fear, impending---and that is the terrible scourge of Continental war, a war which will exceed the horrors of any of the wars of the First Empire. And it is my firm conviction that in spite of all obstacles the Vicar of Jesus Christ will be put again in his own rightful place. But that day will not be until his adversaries shall have crushed each other with mutual destruction."
    --- Tablet, January 24th, 1874.




    July 28th 1914, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia; August 1st, in support of Austria-Hungary and the Holy See, Germany declared war on Russia; August 3rd 1914, Germany then declared war on France; August 4th 1914, Germany declared war on Belgium; August 4th 1914, Britain declared war on Germany; August 6th 1914, Austria declared war on Russia; August 10th 1914, France declared war on Austria; August 13th 1914, Great Britain declared war on Austria.


    Count Leopold Berchtold (1863-1942) was an Austro-Hungarian politician, diplomat and statesman who served as Imperial Foreign Minister at the outbreak of WWI. Once the war had started, Count Berchtold focused his efforts on the question of Italy’s participation in the war that would lead to his downfall. The main problem was Italy’s demands for territorial compensation from Austria-Hungary in return for remaining in the Triple Alliance. When Rome presented the Ballhausplatz with demands for control over territories in southern Austria-Hungary, Berchtold demurred and refused to offer any Habsburg concessions, especially not in the Trentino. However, Italian Foreign Minister Baron Sonnino succeeded in obtaining vague promises of compensations in South Tyrol from Germany and by the end of 1914.


    The Kingdom of Italy, like some of the other European powers, wanted to set up colonies and build up an overseas empire. With this aim in mind, Italy joined the German-Austrian Alliance to form the Triple Alliance (as opposed to the Triple Entente, which consisted of an alliance between Britain, France and Russia), partly in anger at the French seizure of Tunisia in 1881. Because of the Tunisian crisis, the newly formed Republic of Italy found no other big potential ally than its historical enemy, Austria–Hungary, a past enemy of Italian unification.


    The Kingdom of Italy initially consisted of the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, sovereignty over both of which was claimed by the Papacy, which granted them as a fief, the "kingdom of Sardinia and Corsica." Victor Emanuel II was king of Sardinia from 1849 until, on 17 March 1861, when he assumed the title "King of Italy" to become the first king of a united Italy since the 6th century, a title he held until his death in 1878---even with the loss of the Papal States, and overthrow of the Vatican and Pope Pius IX in 1870.




    Charles Frederick Gurney Masterman, PC (1873 –1927) was a British Liberal Party politician and journalist. Charles Masterman headed the initial establishment of a British government propaganda agency during WWI. The Bureau began its propaganda campaign on 2 September 1914 when Masterman invited 25 leading British authors to Wellington House to discuss ways of best promoting Britain's interests during the war.[2][3] Wellington House’s main propaganda work focused on drawing the United States into WWI in Europe.


    Charles Masterman was a member of the Privy Council, a formal body of advisers to the Sovereign in the United Kingdom—the Head of the Church of England and its colony churches worldwide. His Great-grandfather was William Brodie Gurney; his brother was Howard Masterman, who became the Anglican Bishop of Plymouth of the CHURCH OF ENGLAND. All world wars have been Holy Wars and the continuation of the bloody Crusades to reestablish the power of the Papacy—and maintain the ACT OF SUPREMACY and Church of England daughter religion of the Papacy—using Jesuit’ Counter-Reformation “Just War Theory” for world dominance and control of the masses!


    At the start of the WWI, Italy was on the side of Germany. On April 26th 1915, Italy flip-flopped and accepted the British invitation to join the Allies in World War I, because the western allies promised territorial compensation. The Allies did reward the Vatican with the Lateran Treaty signed on February 11, 1929 between Italy and the Holy See---establishing Vatican City and Rome as a Sovereignty under international law---and returned certain lands and properties to the Papacy. The Italian state agreed to pay 750,000,000 lire immediately to the Holy See plus consolidated bearer bonds with a nominal value of 1,000,000,000 lire as reparations.


    The U.S. was neutral for 3 years to WWI propaganda and provocations. On April 6, 1917, the U.S. entered WWI.


    ***During WWI, the Ottoman Empire and Turkish Sultan was overthrown, and Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Alexandretta, Transjordan and the Balkans were returned to the control of the Holy See and its British and French allies with the help of the League of Nations (the precursor to the United Nations). The Holy See flipped on the former Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and Ottoman Turkish Sultan alliance. The Ottoman Empire's central bank was turned over to the Allies.


    NOTE: Byzantium remained the capital of the Byzantine Empire until 1453 AD, when it was conquered by the Muslims and became the capital of the Ottoman Empire. It was also agreed that the Muslims could build mosques in Catholic countries without interference as long as Roman Catholicism could flourish in Arab countries.


    The Holy See flip-flopped on the former Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation (Germany) and Ottoman Turkish Sultan alliance. The Ottoman Empire's central bank was turned over to the Allies. Istanbul, Turkey, formerly known as Constantinople under Byzantine rule, became the Ottoman's fourth and final capital up until its collapse in 1923, which was replaced by the Allies and League of Nations with the Republic of Turkey with Ankara as the current capital.


    The name "Constantinople" is still used by members of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the title of one of their most important religious leaders, the Orthodox patriarch, referred to as "His Most Divine All-Holiness the Archbishop of Constantinople New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch."


    NOTE: The Archbishop of CONSTANTINOPLE and NEW ROME and Ecumenical Patriarch is now "first among equals" in the Eastern Orthodox Communion, since 2 November 1991.


    This Orthodox title is consistent with the original agenda of Cardinal Henry Edward Manning and the OXFORD MOVEMENT'S three "Branch Theology" of; Roman Catholic, Anglican (Church of England), and Orthodox Catholicism.


    The members of the Triple Entente were the French Republic, the British Empire and the Russian Empire (Italy and the Holy See ended its alliance with the Central Powers and entered the war on the side of the Entente in 1915).


    The peace treaties of 1919-1920 established an Allied Power and Holy See supported Roman Catholic Yugoslav state with the name "The Kingdom of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs." The goal of the original Concordat signed between the Holy See and the Habsburg Monarchy that sparked WWI, established a Roman Catholic control of the Yugoslav state.


    Following WWI the British held control of most Ottoman Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and the southern part of the Ottoman Syria (Palestine and Transjordan), while the French controlled the rest of Ottoman Syria (modern Syria, Lebanon, Alexandretta) and other portions of southeastern Turkey. Control of these territories became formalized by the League of Nations, (the precursor to the United Nations) and became known as the British Mandate for Palestine and French Mandate respectively.


    The Lausanne Treaty stipulated a population exchange between Greece and Turkey, whereby 1.1 million Greeks left Turkey for Greece in exchange for 380,000 Muslims transferred from Greece to Turkey. In the treaty, Turkey gave up all claims to the remainder of the Ottoman Empire, and in return the Allies recognized The New Turkish Sovereignty.


    The three main adverse effects of WWI were the rise of Bolshevism in Russia, rise of Fascism in Italy and the rise of Nazism in Germany.


    Today, the properties of the Holy See (Vatican) are regulated by the 1929 Lateran Treaty that was signed with the Kingdom of Italy. In 1984, a revised Concordat was signed defining the relations between the U.S. government and the Vatican within Italy.[4]


    The February 15, 200, bilateral agreement signed between the Vatican and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), WWI and WWII proves that the Holy See will flip-flop on God's Holy people whenever it is politically and economically convenient.


    The United Nations and Vatican sponsored Tony Blair Faith Foundation and UN Faith and Globalization Initiative—was launched at the Time Warner building in NYC in 2008.

    TONY BLAIR CONVERTED TO CATHOLICISM FOUR DAYS AFTER RESIGNING AS PRIME MINISTER OF THE UK: Former UK PM Tony Blair lives in Jerusalem as the UN SPECIAL AMBASSADOR to the Quartet on the Middle East (Russia, U.S., European Union and United Nations). Tony Blair was invited to the Vatican, with a red carpet welcome by Pope Benedict XVI after converting to Roman Catholicism.


    Herman Van Rompuy was selected as the first full-time President of the European Union in 2009. Van Rompuy was educated at JESUIT institutions.


    Do Not believe the Hype that many propagandists are brewing that; World War I had nothing to do with first the Habsburg Monarchy, and then later, France, Great Britain and the Church of England restoring the Temporal power of its mother religion—the Roman Catholic Church and Papacy, as the New Holy Roman Empire and Fourth Reich.
