Who is this exactly: U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corp?edit on 30-6-2013 by signalfire because: addendum
In partnership with a government fund initiated by Barack Obama, philanthropist and billionaire activist George Soros is investing in a private equity company that just launched in the Palestinian territories.
The company, Siraj Fund Management Company, says it was created "for the sole purpose of managing investment funds in Palestine."
The new company's website repeatedly refers to what it calls the "country" of "Palestine." There is, however, no such country as Palestine. Siraj is apparently referring to territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority.
...This week, Siraj Fund Management Company, the first private equity fund in the Palestinian territories, officially launched in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Soros' Economic Development Fund invested in the new group alongside the U.S. government-owned Overseas Private Investment Corporation, or OPIC.
OPIC is an independent agency of the US government that mobilizes private sector investment in new and emerging markets overseas.
In 2009, OPIC created its Global Technology and Innovation Fund, which invested in Siraj, in response to an initiative by Obama to launch an investment group to support technological development in Muslim-majority countries.
The initiative followed Obama's historic address to the Muslim world from Cairo, Egypt in June 2009.

The first meeting with OPIC occurred right after they won the SME challenge and OPIC’s willingness to take this on helped bring on a lot of other support. They were able to get commitments from the Dutch Ministry, USAID, Soros (the Soros Economic Development Fund), Calvert Foundation, and then Deutsche Bank and Gates Foundation.
Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly-paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign "aid" organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet's natural resources. Their tools included fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.
I thought the Chinese were in the process of that starting with the ghost series.I can truly see that happening.A showdown over resources: in Africa.

IMO, this is only in preparation for the future invading forces that will tear the Continent apart in search of all of those resources the West needs.
Can't go to war without taking over the power stations right?
Set up the grid and then invade.
Well, let me stick my neck out here, but please read before all you anti-Obama fruitcakes

7 billion for Africa could be 7 billion to feed starving American children. Could be 7 billion to develop new non oil based energy resources. 7 billion could do a LOT for US where it's needed.
Hey Obama, Go to HELL you scumbag.
