OKLAHOMA CITY Beginning at the end of July, the 2012 Summer Olympics are going to be held in London. We are noticing increasing discussion on certain forums and sites suggesting that something and we emphasize Andrew W. Griffin something may happen at the London Summer Olympics.
We already know there are anti-terror drills being conducted in advance of the games, and a recent report said terrorists are plotting (a) cyanide poison hand cream attack, according to the London Telegraph.
Is this simple fearmongering to justify their tyrannical police state or is something in the works?
And just today we see a report out of Reuters noting that Pool Re, the state-backed British reinsurer that covers terror attack-related commercial property losses, has $7.3 billion of assets to cover the Olympic Games. Just in case.
Of course we hope its simply a time of sportmanship and friendly competition between nations. But Olympic events seem to draw attention to other things, things like occult rituals and hidden symbols. For instance, there is talk that the one-eyed Olympic mascots represent something ancient, dark and sinister.
But London 2012 organizers will laugh it off. After all, they are for children. And the kids? They seem to like the mascotsbecause they remind you of aliens, which is really weird and cool, as one child told a British paper.
But humanity needs ceremony, right? Nothing wrong in that. Of course theres nothing wrong with it as long as the organizers of said event are upfront and honest about the symbolism and rituals that people are taking part in. Why be deceptive?
For instance, the Olympic torch, which is related to the myth of Prometheus stealing fire from the Greek god Zeus. It is lit as a result of the Suns rays focusing on a parabolic mirror and lighting the torch. It is extinguished at the end of the games, during the closing ceremony. The Olympic torch relay will begin on May 18, 2012 and over 70 days have 8,000 torchbearers. The Olympics start on July 27th and it ends on Aug. 12. The Paralympic Games start on Aug. 29th and end on Sept. 9th.
Do people even know this mythology?
As The Vigilant Citizen website notes, In esoteric teachings, the act of carrying the torch is symbolic of mans awareness of his own divine spark and represents his aspiration to become one of the gods.
This is, in a nutshell, the core philosophy of the worlds elite, which is heavily influenced by the hermetic teachings of Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism and Illumnism. For this reason, Prometheus Torch of Illumination is often found in the occult elites symbolism.
But they dont mention that on the London Olympics website. Not that we found, anyway.
Oh, and did you know that the London Eye will be rotating five times faster during the Olympics?
And why is it one eye? Its the eye that watches London and the world.
Perhaps that is why the alien mascots for the Olympics are featured with a single eye. And then there was that bad film from 2008, The Day The Earth Stopped (w/ C. Thomas Howell and Judd Nelson), about intergalactic robots taking over the world, with images of the London Eye and Dome of the Rock (Jerusalem) overlayed.
But lets go back to that hideous logo. Yes, a lot of eyebrows were raised when that odd and ugly London Olympics 2012 logo was unveiled. You know, the pink one where 2012 appears to spell out the word ZION. Of course in ancient times, the word Zion was used to describe the holy city of Jerusalem, now Israels largest city.
This 2012/ZION controversy has already caused an uproar in Iran, and last year the Iranian National Olympic Committee complained about the logo saying the logo was definitely spawned out of some peoples racist spirit.
The International Olympic Committee dismissed the Iranians concern, saying, The logo of London means London Olympic Games 2012, nothing more and nothing less.
As we noted, the logo is ugly. Back in 2007, when the logo was first announced and shown, it was shown flashing and ended up triggering epilepsy in some people, as noted in the UK Sun. Not quite the unifying image the Olympics organizers were probably looking for.
More intriguing is the idea that the William Blake poem And did those feet in ancient time, known as the moving anthem Jerusalem, which is about the apocryphal story that a young Jesus, accompanied by his uncle Joseph of Arimathea, traveled to the area is that is now England and visited Glastonbury.
This would have been during Jesuss lost years a time period between the age of 12 and 30, which is also discussed in Nicolas Notovichs controversial book The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ, which suggests Jesus spent time in India during the lost years.
The poem, set to music in 1916 and titled Jerusalem, has become Englands unofficial national anthem. And that would link the London Olympics ZION logo and the notion of Jerusalem being in England. This couldnt be mere coincidence, could it?
Here is the texts of Blakes poem published in 1808:
And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon Englands mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands pleasant pastures seen!
And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?
Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In Englands green & pleasant Land
Note the reference to chariot of fire. A reference to Elijah and Elisha in the Old Testament (2 Kings and his separation from Elijah by a chariot of fire and horses of fire and how this separated the two of them, and Elijah ascended in a whirlwind into the heavens.
Specifically it reads (2 Kings 2:11) As they were walking and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. Elisha saw this and cried out, My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel! And Elisha saw him no more.
Where did Elijah go? And what took him there? What was that chariot?
And what of the Old Testaments Ezekiel and his vision of a wheel within a wheel, like a UFO sighting, as he notes an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal.
Of course that line we noted in 2 Kings was also used as the title for the Academy Award-winning 1981 film Chariots of Fire. The film is about two athletes, both runners a devout Scottish Christian named Eric Liddell and an English Jew named Harold Abrahams fighting anti-Semitism who both go on to win gold medals at the 1924.
Note the connection England and Israel. Is that what that logo is linking? And what is the overall message?
But back to Chariots of Fire. The dreamy and hypnotic theme song, composed by synthesizer master Vangelis, was used during the films iconic beach-running scene remains popular 30 years later and is being linked to this summers Olympics. Appropriately, Vangelis (full name Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou) is Greek, culturally linking him to the origins of the Olympics.
His work can be heard accompanying a choir singing Jerusalem at the end of the film.
Interestingly, Wikipedia also notes that Chariots of Fire is a recurring theme in promotions for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The films theme tune was featured at the 2012 London New Years fireworks celebrating the Olympics.
And starting on May 9, a play based on Chariots of Fire will run for five weeks at Londons Hampstead Theatre and the Gielgud Theatre in Londons West End.
And that reference to chariots of fire and so forth? Could it be that a UFO sighting will take place at the home of Greenwich Mean Time? Something else, perhaps related to the Royal Family?
Other recent references in popular culture include U2s Bono incorporating lines from the poem/song Jerusalem in their sweeping song Bad when they performed last June at the UKs Glastonbury festival on the pyramid stage. Bono said it was a tribute to Glastonburys historical significance. Bono is familiar with Glastonburys mystical past and its current popularity as a destination for neo-pagans and New Agers.
Glastonbury is linked to the legends of King Arthur and is believed to be the site of the legendary island of Avalon. It is also where Joseph of Arimathea stuck his staff into the ground and the Glastonbury Thorn flowered miraculously at the site.
As UK Guardian reporter Dorian Lynskey noted in his review of U2s Glastonbury performance: Aside from an acapella verse of Jerusalem, Bono wisely keeps the Avalon blarney to a minimum. Could be the ley lines, he begins. Could be the jetlag. But its a very special feeling here. He has an instinct for the right gesture.
Or perhaps an insider like Bono, who regularly rubs shoulders with some of the most powerful figures in the world, knows more than he is letting on, only giving little hints when he can. As The Washington Post suggested two years ago, Bono is the leader we need.

"Stratford in London, is to become host to the Olympic village, which is undergoing massive regeneration due to the project. The site was claimed to be the last area of suitable waste land in London. Pretty lucky eh?..."
The Location - Ley Lines
The Olympics 2012 site is situated between Leyton and Leytonestone. The "Ley" found in their names originates from the term 'Ley lines'.
For those who are in the dark:
Ley lines, or Leys, are alignments of ancient sites stretching across the landscape. Ancient sites or holy places may be situated in a straight line ranging from one or two to several miles in length. A ley may be identified simply by an aligned placing of marker sites, or it might be visible on the ground for all or part of its length by the remnants of an old straight track.
Our ancestors knew that ley lines, earth grids and vortexes were energy sources and centers that were to be considered holy.
A "Ley Line" is one a number of lines which form part of an energy grid which cross the Earth. The energy - metaphysical in nature.
So is there any documentary proof that 'Ley lines' cross near Leyton and Leytonestone? You bet there is...
The bender site, and the old yew tree in it, were the short-lived heart of Leytonstonia, decorated with a kerb-henge, a replica of Stonehenge made with kerbstones. (Some talked of the significance of the names Leyton and Leytonstone, of their relation to ley lines more generally, as though this might explain the energy of the protest sites. A brickhenge was made at Clarement Road, halfway between Leyton and Leytonstone.)
The Olympics site lies in an area synonymous with mystical - metaphysical - earth energy. Is this yet another coincidence or part of a plan for the 2012 Olympics which was put into motion way before the event was officially finalised?
What do I think of all this?
Well, if anybody else mentions the Olympics to me then I shall scream, and scream and SCREAM!
'Its HIGH TIME to STOP being (f**c*ng) OBLIVIOUS!!' (MY bad word added - almost.
'LIGHT UP, LIGHT UP, AS IF YOU HAD THE CHOICE
AND EVEN IF YOU CAN'T HEAR MY VOICE
