“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”
Translation: Do whatever you want – that’s the Law.

Jimmy Page (founder of Led Zeppelin) owned Aleister Crowley’s former home -dubbed the Boleskine House during the early 1970s to the early 1990s. Page’s obsession with Crowley also led him to purchase some of his clothes, manuscripts and ritual objects. 

 

The Doors “13” album features the band posing with a bust of Aleister Crowley.

 

Russell Brand admires the man nicknamed “The Great Beast.” Brand stated, “… there are aphorisms (sayings) I still deem tight: The carnal self is the true self. … a type of Aleister Crowley ‘Do what thou wilt’ as the sum of the law.”

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith – Below is taken from Vanity Fair Magazine’s feature, “Top 10 Revelations in Steven Tyler’s Memoir, “Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?” :
“If early Aerosmith songs like ‘Mama Kin’ make you all tingly (as they should), it may be thanks to the Great Beast himself, Mr. Aleister Crowley. ‘I’ve practiced Crowley Magick so I know it works,’ Tyler writes of channeling the power of the mutual orgasm to achieve wider goals. ‘I’m not saying that every girl I slept with came at the same time or that I asked her to pray for the same thing I was praying for; namely that Aerosmith would become the greatest American band.’”

World War 3 is Brewing

“Make no mistake: Bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities would mean war.” Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann Leverett

The rivalry between Israel and Iran always makes headlines. Israel claims Iran is on the hunt to create atomic bombs, resisting its claims that its nuclear programme is solely for Iranian civilians. Iran swears its nukes are for peaceful purposes, however, if attacked, they will get vengeance by striking Israeli and American interests in the region.

Western news media speculates that Israel is on the verge of attacking Iranian nuclear sites to protect themselves.

Israeli President Shimon Peres cautioned that attacking Iran is likely. “I don’t think that any decision has already been made, but there is an impression that Iran is getting closer to nuclear weapons,” he declared.

Russia’s foreign minister  Sergei Lavrov stated that it would be a “very serious mistake fraught with unpredictable consequences.”  Russia and Iran advised the West against any military interference, insisting it would bring more deaths and new threats to the world’s security.

American President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy accidentally let their thoughts slip regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Journalists overheard Sarkozy label Netanyahu a “liar.” One of their microphones was unintentionally left on after last week’s G20 meeting.

Sarkozy told Obama, “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar.”

Obama replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

Since there is always conflict surrounding Iran and Israel, many people shun reading and watching any news concerning their ongoing struggles. The possibility of a war with Iran has been gracing the front covers, yet nothing disastrous has happened.

This situation reminds me of Aesop’s fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf.  Not many people care to pay attention anymore, and then out of the blue, we are smack in the middle of World War III.

Many of us live a hustle and bustle life and we want to come home and unwind — not read or watch depressing news.  A few friends of mine do not care to read about the Middle East’s problems.

They tell me, “It’s so old now. All they do is fight.  I’ve read about a possible war with Iran years ago and nothing’s happened. It’s just fear mongering.”

I do not believe they realise the repercussions of a war with Iran. I really wouldn’t want to see a war.  As cliché as this sounds — I hope for peace one day in the Middle East.

Some Consequences:

  • Civilian casualties
  • More countries building nuclear weapons for protection
  • Missile attacks on Western countries
  • Missile attacks on Israel
  • Sharp rise in oil prices by closing the Straits of Hormuz
  • Arab hatred towards the Western world

“If Iran’s national pride drives their policy, then they will bear the costs of that.” —Barack Obama
