Freemasonry appeared in Egypt soon after Napoleon's conquest in 1798 when General Kleber, a French Mason and top commander in Napoleon's army established the Lodge of Isis. French Masonry dominated Egypt until British lodges began to appear after the British occupation in 1882. Freemasonry was very popular in the first half of the twentieth century, and many important Egyptians were Masons, along with the British rulers and aristocrats who occupied the country.
In fact the Egyptian monarchs, from Khedive Ismail to King Fouad, were made honorary Grand Masters at the start of their reigns. From 1940 to 1957 there were close to seventy Masonic lodges chartered throughout Egypt. At one time the leaders of the Nationalist and Wafd parties were Freemasons, and many members of the Egyptian parliament were Masons as well, where they mingled with the military commanders and aristocrats of the ruling British occupation.
Two very important Islamic leaders in Egypt, Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and Mohammed Abdou, were also Freemasons. Al-Afghani was a foreigner who had been the prime minister of Afghanistan before becoming an activist in Iran and Russia prior to his appearance in Egypt.
He is considered "the founder of the political pan-Islamic movement," and his movement is known as the Salafiyya movement.
He agitated against British imperialism but at the same time he advocated modernization for the Muslim world. Before being expelled from Egypt he became an important figure at Al-Azhar University in Cairo and his most important disciple was Mohammed Abduh. Throughout his life he was an activist for Muslim self-determination, but several times he visited London where, according to one biographer, "he reestablished ties with his lodge members." When al-Afghani died in 1897 he left behind a large body of political and religious writings that would form part of the basis for the later Islamist movements.

Of course Muslim extremism is a creation of the West, as is Zionism, it's self same created enemy, and conqueror of Christianity. You can throw Communism and Capitalism in there as well. The global situation we see today is long since planned and orchestrated and is soon to come to fruition. All the world's indeed a stage.
Very intresting post and connection you have made here.
I have read of this connection some years ago while reading Nesta Webster's book "Secret Societys and Subservsive Movements."
I also recall reading something connecting Islam and Freemasonry in Edith Star Millers book "Occult Theocrasy" before moving on to Nesta Websters book.
There seems to be a connection often to such as you describe. I recall reading a Playboy article on the Sandinasta movement in Nicaragua interviewing Daniel Ortega. He states that the Communist Sandinasta movement was started by some Freemasons meeting in a bar. I got a great chuckle out of that one.
I have heard the same thing about the Nazi party and that in the defeat of Germany after WW2 the allies moved in very quickly to extinguish any such occult connection with the western lodges...or any lodges at all.
Want to see something very intresting..you see this several times a year on the Hitler Channel...aka..the History Channel.
Watch closely the news reels of the surrender to Douglas McArthur on the battleship Missouri in 1945. Watch the Japanese Civilians and the clothes they are wearing.
THe uniform of the lodge is a tophat tuxedo and gloves. What are the Japanese Civilian represenatives wearing? Now the Generals/Admirals ..lodge members or not wear their uniforms and surrender their swords/sidearms. But watch the civililans.
I believe most observers of this film think they are watching a standard military surrender. It is one lodge surrendering to another lodge.
I should also add that Douglas Mc Arthur was a Shriner . He is buried acros the bay from me in Norfolk, Virginia next to his wife in the Museum bearing his name. Many of his private posessions are on display to the public.
I believe many would be shocked to find out how many of these wars are one lodge fighting another lodge...as was the case in WW1 where so many of the leaders were not only lodge members but also cousins.
I wonder what the lodge is to which the Mexican presidents belong....NAFTA?? Is it really an inside deal ...codified to make it publically acceptable?
THere are stories of the Mexican General Santa Anna when being readied for execution by firing squad...he gave the grand hail sign. Sam Houston being a good lodge member..stopped the execution and on his word ..not to fight again...released Santa Anna.
Lots of stories like this in the American Civil war too.
You know Heronumber0..I had been reading on this concealed history for some years before the light bulb went on in total shock while watching the news on the boob tube one evening. There in living colour were the Protestant Orangemen having a march or parade past some of the Catholic areas in Northern Ireland. There they were with all their heavy chained medallions around their necks their tuxedos and tophats and gloves. I had seen versions of this several times before this one finally clicked the lightbulb into the on brightly mode. The Orangemen are a masonic lodge!! What a dummy I was!! What a revelation!! THen when digging further I found out that the Catholics for centurys had thier lodge versions. Sinn Finn is a Catholic lodge. Now I doubt that most of the catholics and protestants know this ...in Ireland but It becomes obvious to me that most outside Ireland and the UK dont either. Most Englishmen have no reason to know this too.
What do you suppose the House of Orange from the Netherlands really means?? Did they not put a King and Queen on the throne of England...William and Mary of Orange.
We have a very famous college not far from me in Williamsburg, Virginia...William and Mary College. Why do you suppose the Prime ministers and the Queen when she come here always manage to stop at this particular college out of all the universities in this nation??
What is that funny square hat one wears when one graduates from high school or college?? What is its origins??...oh....a mortar board?? LOL LOL LOL!!! Nothing like a little bricklaying mortar board to show one is properly educated in Gnostic Wisdom. LOL LOL LOL!! All coincidental of course.
Amazing what one realizes when one starts thinking outside public education standards. For public education you can substitute television education standards.
I believe much of world history is covered up and re addressed to hide this connection. IN otherwords ..much of the truth about history is missing.
Thanks for a great post,

Once again I must make haste off to work so I must do this quickly.
On this topic. If you ever read books on this subject..real books not the stuff of Barnes and Noble or Books a Million...what you learn and sense is that this is a seperate group with a mandate....dwelling in many nations.
A seperate group with a doctrine/dogma...that they have the right to go where ever they are and to rule. Even the degrees are feudal titles. Royalty.
This is feudalism. Royalty. A class not seen or known by most of the people it affects. When you infiltrate this system into the supposedly blind justice system thinking people can easily see what it bodes.
a justice for the feudal ruling class and a justice for the serfs.
Most are educated to think that justice is blind. They are never educated in this seperate, occult, concealed, esoteric system. They dont even know of its existance...most of them. This in my mind is one of the purposes of public education.
Now mind you ..most even in this group don't know of this trend....but they have managed to pull it off...kept even many within ignorant and on the patriotic treadmill. But when they are called on to carry out the oath they have taken they must do so and tell no one. Not even their wives.
This is Feudalism ...indentured servitude...for all..
Think about this in lieu of our earlier posts on racism. THen think about how ignorant most of us are on that topic as well as others.

I was not aware that you were in the Education field. Great!!
Yes ..many of us are followers. I include myself in this at times. THe knowlege to teach us to think outside these control straight jackets is limited in public education. Independent thought. INdependent action.
Yes I am somewhat familiar with P2 and the events surrounding Roberto Calvi under the bridge in England. There was a book on this topic and Roberto Calvi and others associated with the Vatican Bank and P2.
Also another book detailing informations on the death of the Pope before John Paul II. This Pope if I remember lasted only about a month in the office.
I had not thought of these people being like babies as you describe...more like robots when required to carry out thier oath. I will have to consider this. But then again in consideration of your point about being like babies, if one understands anything about Luceriferianism...babylike robotism is what is required. Especially when you read about the method of control and how it is instituted.
Racism is to me another form of feudalism....control ..no matter who is practicing it.
You have done alot of reading and research on this area. May I ask what lead you to this area of thought?? Not many people are even aware of this fingerprint all around us. How is it that you came into contact with this fingerprint and taught yourself so much about it. Most people havent a clue and wouldnt believe you if you told them. Most would think you are nuts. I dont speak of this to many people.
Most folks I know are more intrested in the LA Lakers or American Idol type drivel.
How is it that you have escaped this virus so prevalent in our social structure?? Curious here??
