WORLD - Why the West Is Losing Support

Arno Froese

On 7 April 2022, the alarm bells went off in most European and North American capitals. The reason was not some Russian military movement in Ukraine but a vote in the human rights council of the United Nations.

On that day the 195 member states of the council voted on the suspension of the Russian Federation as a member of that council. A majority of 93, against 82, was in favor of the suspension (as 24 were against, and 58 abstained).

However, 20 countries were strategically absent. 

In other words, only a minority of the world’s countries supported the resolution of the West against Russia, even though it had invaded Ukraine. 

If we look into the details of the vote, the picture is even more worrying. From the 58 African countries, only eight voted with the West. Only five of the 45 Asian, and only two of the 18 countries of the Middle East and North-Africa supported Russia’s suspension. 

[At the Doha Forum] the American and European speakers emphasized the fact that Russia had crossed the red lines of international law and that it should therefore being sanctioned.

The former foreign minister of Pakistan, Hina Rabbani Khar, had a different perspective.

She reminded the public that in 2003 the US and a coalition of the willing had invaded Iraq illegally. The reasons for the invasion appeared to be lies. Nevertheless, the world was asked to support the United States, not to sanction it.

So, Rabbani Khar wondered, why should the world first support an American illegal war and now sanction a Russian one? The room, mostly filled with Arab, Asian and African people, seemed to agree with her., 1 November 2022

Arno's Commentary

The above excerpts from the article we publish show the clear tendency of the world of nations: an ever-larger bloc is being formed in the East, including Africa, insisting that the previous dominance of the European-American one can no longer remain in full force.

Welcome to the new world! This is the preparation for the fulfillment of Revelation 16:13-14: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
