Text from a plaque in Israel, the German Colony:
'Following the Russo-Turkish War, the Haifa community continued to thrive as the leading German Colony in Eretz Yisrael. Durging the First Aliya (immigration), the Templars were employed in construction, building new Jewish settlements such as Zichron Ya'acow and Bat Shlomo the winery belonging to Baron Rothchild in Rishon Lezion, and industrial facilities in Haifa, including an olive oil and soup plant whose products were successfully exported.
During the 1880s Consul Fritz Keler was instrumental in establishing the first residential quarter on the Carmel. The Templars settlers cleared a road up the hillside - today's Tzionut and Hanasi Boulevards - and built summer residences and guest houses.'
The next plaque:
'During the mid-19th century a new reform movement sprang up in Wirtemburg, in the south-western part of Germany. Its staunches proponents left the Protestant Church and established the Association of Templars (not to be confused with the Knights Templar). They declared as their mission the settlement of the holyland and the establishment of an exemplary Christian community.
In the autumn of 1868 the two leaders Christoff Hoffman and Georg David Hardeg, left for the holyland and settled next to the port cities of Haifa and Jaffa, establishing the first German Colonies.
Later, additional settlements such as Sarona, Wilhelma, Waldheim etc. were founded.'
From another plaque:
'With the visit to the holyland of Kaiser Wilhelm, the German Colony was at the peak of its influence. The Haifa community had a population of about 750 and some 200 buildings, including the new neighbourhood on the Carmel and their agricultural holding-Neuhardthoff (opposite Tirat Hacarmel).
The Templars played a prominent role in the economy of the city, working in construction, trade, industry and crafts, tourism and transportation. They built and operated a steam-based power station, a large automated carpentry plant and a factory for building products. They also ran an on-going carriage service between Haifa and Akko, Nazareth and Tiberias.'
And from another:
'On the 25th of October, 1898, Kaiser Wilhelm disembarked at the special pier that the Turkish Sultan ordered built in his honor at the edge of the German Colony. The Consul, Fritz escorted the Kaiser to the Carmel that same day. On the spot were the Kaiser and his entourage stopped to look out over the Bay of Akko the German colonists later built the Kaiser Wilhelm Monument and honoring his wife, planted a grove around it known today as the Augusta Victoria Grove.
On the second day of his visit, after a festive reception in the garden of the consulate and a tour of the Colony, the Kaiser travelled to Jaffa and Jerusalem in order to inaugurate the Church of the Redemption.
The Kaiser's visit to Haifa won unprecedented media coverage, adding greatly to the prestige of the German Colony.'
A few things to note; colony, as opposed to quarter; established prior to Israel being formed; Rothschild; the pyramids over certain signs; the pyramids with the eye built into several structures; key points not translated into English, but translated by the narrator of the film; funding to this day continues to pour in from German; the spelling of Templar -- these people laid not only the economic foundation of the state of Israel, but its industry, transport, education and tourism. They are noted as being the 'protectorate of the Jews in the holy land.' I would imagine their power has only grown to whatever its extent is today.
Israel, through the Israel lobby / it's political contributions bend America, Europe and it's commonwealths to its will -- and, from what I understand of this wonderful little film, Israel is bent under the will of the German elite.
Oh, and here is a little coincidence for you. The tune to the German National Anthem is the same music to the song, Glorious things of thee are spoken, which goes:
I can't help but wonder to myself if these are the lyrics sung by those truly in power here.Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God!
He, Whose Word cannot be broken,
Formed thee for His own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation’s walls surrounded,
Thou may’st smile at all thy foes.
If anyone has any further information on this, I would be very appreciative and interested in seeing and having the pleasure of discussing the same.Savior, if of Zion’s city,
I through grace a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in Thy Name.
Fading is the worldling’s pleasure,
All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure
None but Zion’s children know.
