French President Emmanuel Macron Is Being Hailed As The Only One Who Is Capable Of Resolving The Crisis With Russia And Ukraine, But Why?

Now that war is underway, and with no off-ramp in sight, the world needs bolder action from the French head of state. Following Biden’s assertion that Putin is a “butcher” who “cannot remain in power,” Macron was right to emphasize that Western leaders should avoid hostile rhetoric that intensifies the conflict, but his deference to Washington has so far prevented him from taking the action needed to resolve the crisis. The man best placed to resolve the crisis? French President Emmanuel Macron.

That France currently holds the EU presidency only adds to his mystique. Macron should use his newfound eminence to persuade the rest of Europe that keeping Ukraine out of NATO is humane and pragmatic policy.

He shows up in the middle of every crisis, is always the first world leader to respond, and he has a closer relationship with Pope Francis than any other elected official anywhere in the world. Emmanuel Macron has Jewish ancestry on his mother’s side, and Assyrian and Roman ancestry on his father’s side. As I write this, Emmanuel Macron is the president of the European Union, the president of France, and the Prince of Andorra. One more thing, his birthday falls right in the middle of the Roman feast of Saturnalia. And you wonder why we say he just might be the biblical man of sin?

“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.” Daniel 8:23,24 (KJB)

I don’t know about you, but I sure do love watching Emmanuel Macron working his way to the top of the political jungle, and I fervently hope he is the biblical man of sin. Because if he is, and the falling away has already been fulfilled, the 2 Thessalonians 2:3 revealing of him holding that office is the last thing keeping Flight #777 in taxi mode. It is obvious that Putin is sending in conscripts to preserve his real soldiers, and waging a phony war with Ukraine because his ultimate goal is pulling America and NATO into a nuclear war. Jesus said the first sign of the end times is deception, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now, deception on every level.

France’s President Macron must lead the way to peace in Ukraine

FROM THE WEEK: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has widened the divide between Russia and the West and threatened the security of Europe. With talks between Moscow and Kyiv so far failing to produce a negotiated settlement, and President Biden favoring unhelpful escalatory rhetoric, it is hard to imagine what the endgame of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will look like. Historian Niall Ferguson has even suggested that Washington is trying to prolong the conflict to bleed Moscow of blood and treasure.  Some have hoped that Israel or China might facilitate an agreement to end the war, but neither can guarantee that a resolution to the conflict would protect Russia’s long-term interests.

The man best placed to resolve the crisis? French President Emmanuel Macron.

Before the war, Macron took the lead in engaging Putin diplomatically. The French president should be applauded for trying to prevent war, but he never stood a chance. Macron was working within the suffocating constraints of an intensifying security competition between the United States and Russia. Putin had made it clear that avoiding war would require written guarantees from Washington that Ukraine will never join NATO. During a televised meeting with his national security team, Putin observed that in 2008 reluctant European governments had opened NATO’s door to Kyiv under U.S. pressure. He reasoned that Washington could compel those same nations to one day vote for Ukraine’s accession to the alliance. There was little Macron could do to assuage those concerns.

Now that war is underway, and with no off-ramp in sight, the world needs bolder action from the French head of state. Following Biden’s assertion that Putin is a “butcher” who “cannot remain in power,” Macron was right to emphasize that Western leaders should avoid hostile rhetoric that intensifies the conflict, but his deference to Washington has so far prevented him from taking the action needed to resolve the crisis. Macron should now announce, after doing the necessary diplomacy behind the scenes, that if Putin withdraws military forces from Ukraine, Paris will block Kyiv’s bid to join NATO. To make this assurance credible, Macron should explicitly and publicly, though graciously, reject U.S. leadership in Europe. That would be an uncomfortable step, but Europeans in general — and Ukrainians in particular — will be better off if he takes it.

In recent decades, America has badly undermined Europe’s security. U.S. belligerence in the Middle East has unleashed refugee crises that continue to destabilize European politics. And as John Mearsheimer predicted, America’s insistence on backing Putin into a corner has now created another crisis on the continent. This time, not Syrian migrants but Russian tanks headed toward a European capital.

Theoretically, any NATO state could promise to deny membership to Ukraine, thus relieving Russia’s security concerns and opening a path to peace. But Putin knows any such assurance from, say, Slovakia, might not survive a change of government in Bratislava, especially amid a diplomatic campaign from Washington. As it happens, Macron is uniquely well-positioned to convince Moscow that his country will keep NATO’s door shut to Kyiv.

On both left and right, Macron’s opponents in the upcoming presidential elections are sympathetic to the Kremlin’s perspective on the conflict. Moscow would understand that if Macron loses this month, his successor likely won’t renege on his promise. While the gambit is not guaranteed to succeed, Putin would need to withdraw military forces for the agreement to take effect, and then avoid further aggression to vindicate the policy as a cornerstone of European security. Whatever happens, Macron wouldn’t have to worry about pro-Russia candidates Eric Zemmour and Jean-Luc Melenchon accusing him of being Putin’s puppet.

With the United Kingdom out of the European Union, and Angela Merkel off the international stage, Macron is the face of Europe. That France currently holds the EU presidency only adds to his mystique. Macron should use his newfound eminence to persuade the rest of Europe that keeping Ukraine out of NATO is humane and pragmatic policy. Even Zelensky has cooled on the idea of joining NATO, though he cannot ensure that future Ukrainian presidents will feel the same. The pre-invasion NATO approach of publicly asserting that Ukraine could join the alliance, while privately telling Ukraine they won’t be admitted, was clearly flawed and should now be rectified.

Such a solution should not be dismissed as “appeasement.” Ukrainians would benefit from their country becoming a buffer state rather than the pawn of great powers. Europeans would benefit from seizing control of their own destiny. And the world would benefit from the removal of an explosive geopolitical dispute between the two biggest nuclear powers in the world.

France may worry that a rebuke of Washington would backfire, but the consequences would be much less severe than many realize. A declining superpower, the U.S. found it difficult to convince even close allies like Israel to stand against Russia. At the U.N. Security Council, the world’s most populous nations — China and India — abstained from condemning the Russian invasion, as did the United Arab Emirates, a U.S. ally. Other Middle Eastern partners — Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Egypt — are pursuing their own strategic objectives rather than siding with America. Washington has had trouble getting Latin America on board with the sanctions regime, and members of Mexico’s ruling party even formed a “Mexico-Russia Friendship Committee” to show sympathy for Moscow. None of these countries seem worried about how the U.S. will respond to their refusal to toe the line. READ MORE

MAN OF DESTINY: A Defiant Emmanuel Macron Says He Will Not Resign ‘Whatever The Result’ Of The New Upcoming French Parliamentary Elections He’s Called

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said he would not resign ‘whatever the result’ of the upcoming French parliamentary elections.

That Emmanuel Macron is a ‘man of destiny’ is readily apparent, even if his political career would end today. He has defied expectations from the moment he came on the scene in 2017, adamantly declaring he would one day rule as the god Jupiter. At the rate he is going, he just might do that, and maybe a whole lot more than that. Emmanuel Macron is ready for a fight.

“And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.” Daniel 11:22 (KJB)

Adolf Hitler was another ruler who enjoyed defying expectations, repeatedly doing things that no one saw coming, and astounding people with the results. It was his constantly going for broke at every turn, and holding the winning hand at the end that led to the German people viewing him as a messianic figure worthy of their worship. Hitler did not deceive with words alone, it was his actions that ‘sealed the deal’. Is Emmanuel Macron cut from that same cloth? That is the question we’ve been asking for the past 7 years, one that he continues to answer in the affirmative. Whatever the result of the election, Macron will be the winner one way or the other. He’s not going anywhere, he’s a man of destiny.

Macron rules out resigning, ‘whatever the result’ of French snap election will be

FROM POLITICO: Emmanuel Macron called the election on Sunday night, in response to a big win by the far-right National Rally in the European election, which has piled pressure on his administration.

“It’s not the National Rally that writes the Constitution nor the spirit of it,” he said in an interview with Le Figaro Magazine. “The institutions are clear, and so is the place of the president, whatever the result.”

Macron was answering a question on whether he would be ready to resign if the National Rally wins the parliamentary election and urges him to leave. It also intersected with swirling rumors which began circulating on Tuesday that he was considering resigning, triggering a denial from the Elysée.

Instead, Macron said that he would take part directly in the electoral campaign and warned against assuming that the National Rally’s result at the European election would be replicated in the parliamentary election, which has a different voting system.

France will go to the polls for the parliamentary election first round on June 30, with a second round to follow on July 7.

“Politics is dynamic. I’ve never believed in polls. The decision I have taken opens a new era. A new campaign begins, and we should look at the scores for each constituency in the light of those for the European elections,” Macron added.

Macron will start campaigning with a press conference in a Parisian hotel on Wednesday, an event initially planned for Tuesday. But not everyone is happy to see the French president campaigning directly. In private, several MPs from Macron’s camp see his direct involvement in the campaign as a bad news, rather than a boost, POLITICO’S Playbook Paris reported Tuesday.

France’s simmering political crisis, the rise of the far right and the decision to call the snap vote have also sparked fears on the markets, with credit agencies and experts warning that political instability and a possible National Rally victory will undermine French efforts to cut public debt, which is at a worrying level.

Emmanuel Macron Says He’s ‘Outraged’ By Yesterday’s Strike On Rafah By Israel, Demands An ‘Immediate Ceasefire’ To IDF Offensive Against Hamas

French president Emmanuel Macron ‘outraged’ by Israeli strikes on Rafah, calls for ‘immediate’ ceasefire in battle against Hamas

It is highly likely that when Israel struck Hamas terrorists in Rafah, that the targeted hit found hidden caches of Hamas weapons that exploded, killing dozens of Palestinian civilians. The Jerusalem reports “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the IDF strike that killed 45 Palestinian civilians in Gaza a “tragic mistake” as he vowed never to wave the white flag of defeat as he rejected domestic and international calls to end the war.”

“But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:” Amos 1:7 (KJB)

In Paris, tens of thousands of demonstrators have gathered in Paris to protest against Israel’s military offensive in Gaza, with Emmanuel Macron leading the way with inflammatory tweets on X. At the same time, Slovenia’s Prime Minister Robert Golob says his government will decide on the recognition of a Palestinian state on Thursday and forward its decision to parliament for final approval. Israel is rapidly being painted into a corner, a corner that has it edges perched firmly in the writings of the prophets.

Emmanuel Macron demands Israel begin ceasefire immediately

FROM THE MIDDLE EAST MONITOR: The French president Monday expressed his “outrage” over Israeli strikes on Rafah, Anadolu news agency reported.

“Outraged by the Israeli strikes that have killed many displaced persons in Rafah,” Emmanuel Macron wrote on X. “These operations must stop. There are no safe areas in Rafah for Palestinian civilians. I call for full respect for international law and an immediate ceasefire,” the president added.

At least 35 people were killed and dozens injured as Israel targeted a camp for displaced people and houses in the southern Gaza city of Rafah on Sunday, said medical sources and officials.

The attack occurred near the logistics base of the UN Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) in Tal al-Sultan, said the Gaza Media Office.

Israel has been waging a brutal offensive against Gaza since October, despite a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire. The offensive has killed at least 36,000 Palestinians, mainly children and women, and wounded almost 80,000 others.

More than seven months into the Israeli war, vast swathes of Gaza lie in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.

Israel is accused of “genocide” at the ICJ, which has ordered Tel Aviv to ensure its forces do not commit acts of genocide and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza. According to South Africa, which took the occupation state to the ICJ, Israel is ignoring the court’s orders. READ MORE

Emmanuel Macron Says He Is Now Ready To Send French Troops Into Ukraine If Russia Is Able To Break Through The Front Lines Which Is Quite Likely

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Emmanuel Macron has said he would be prepared to send troops to Ukraine if Vladimir Putin’s forces break through the front lines, raising the risk of NATO forces clashing with Russia’s armies.

Emmanuel Macron has been talking tough lately, and if he is not careful he just may get the chance to see how tough France really is. The French military is pretty good as far as Europe goes, constantly ranked in the ‘Big Three’ along with the UK and Germany, but Russia is an anomaly as many leaders like Napoleon and Hitler found out the hard way. Fighting Russia through Ukraine as a proxy is one thing, fighting them head on will be quite another.

“How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!” 2 Samuel 1:27 (KJB)

Russia right now is getting missiles from North Korea, drones from Iran, and a massive amount of technical assistance from China, forming an Axis-type alliance with these shadowy end times nations. Did you know that Vietnam was a proxy war? It sure was. Russia and China backed North Vietnam while the United States backed South Vietnam. Guess who won? It was not the United States who suffered more than 58,000 dead and then was forced to flee as Saigon fell. Proxy wars can have very substantial consequences as Emmanuel Macron may soon be finding out.

Macron vows to send TROOPS to Ukraine if Putin’s forces break through front lines and Zelensky asks for reinforcements

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: In an interview published today, the French president said the issue of sending troops would ‘legitimately’ arise if Kyiv and president Volodymyr Zelensky made such a request. The Economist said Macron gave the interview after delivering a keynote speech last week where he declared that Europe is ‘mortal’ and could ‘die’ partly due to the threat posed by Russian aggression after its February 2022 invasion of Ukraine.

It also came as Russia claimed its forces had taken another town in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, with Moscow’s armies continuing to push against Kyiv’s defences. Russia is rushing to advance against struggling Ukrainian forces ahead of the long-awaited arrival of the bulk of US weapons to the front for Kyiv’s outgunned troops.

‘I’m not ruling anything out, because we are facing someone who is not ruling anything out,’ Macron said when asked if he stood by comments earlier this year not excluding the sending of Western troops that sent shockwaves around Europe.

Such a move would see NATO troops go head-to-head with those in the Russian army, dramatically increasing the risk of an escalation. What’s more, some analysts believe that Russia could be on the verge of launching a major new offensive in Ukraine.

Macron said ‘if Russia decided to go further, we will in any case all have to ask ourselves this question’ of sending troops, describing his refusal to rule out such a move as a ‘strategic wake-up call for my counterparts’.

He described Russia as ‘a power of regional destabilisation’ and ‘a threat to Europeans’ security’.

‘I have a clear strategic objective: Russia cannot win in Ukraine,’ Macron said. ‘If Russia wins in Ukraine, there will be no security in Europe,’ he warned.

‘Who can pretend that Russia will stop there? What security will there be for the other neighbouring countries, Moldova, Romania, Poland, Lithuania and the others?’

Under NATO’s Article 5, all members are obliged to defend others in the case of an armed attack. Should Russia directly attack a NATO member, then the US, the UK, France and Germany are among those who would be expected to respond. Any such conflict risks growing into a global war, the like of which has not been seen since the end of the Second World War. READ MORE
