With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Africa Attracting More Investor Attention (The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Reality)

“A significant number of corporate executives have declared their company’s intentions of growing their presence in Africa and the number of global companies looking to establish a foothold on the continent has increased,” Jan Groenewald, valuation and economics leader at PwC corporate finance said.

“A key characteristic of the post-2008 recession has been the increase in prominence of Africa as an investment destination. With an already higher than average growth rate, Africa is becoming an attractive place to do business especially as corporates in developed markets seek to augment slowing growth rates in their home markets.  • Africanglobe

After moving from an accounted sales of 90 million mobile phones in 2005 to an estimated 450 million in 2012, Africa has now become the world’s second largest mobile phone market after China.
VP and COO, Samsung electronics Africa,  George Ferreira, made this known at the Africa Regional launch for the manufacturer’s new GALAXY Note II, held in Cape Town, South Africa.
On Tuesday, the vast majority of African Americans cast their votes for a man whose hands are soaked in the blood of millions of Congolese. Barack Obama, like his predecessors George Bush and Bill Clinton, has pulled the strings, paid the cash, and sent the weapons that Uganda and Rwanda have used to cause the deaths of six million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo since invading that country in 1996. Various organs of the United Nations have repeatedly found America’s two top allies in Black Africa complicit in the Congo genocide, and on every occasion, the U.S. and Great Britain have protected the mass murderers. And why not? The genocide in Congo is the deliberate result of American and British policy. Uganda and Rwanda are merely henchmen, who commit mass murder in return for a cut of Congo’s vast stores of mineral resources. Western businesses are the ultimate beneficiaries.

Why Syria?

You might ask why there is so much focus on Syria right now.
Well, Syria is an integral part of the proposed 1,200km Arab Gas Pipeline:

So yes, regime change was planned against Syria (as well as Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan and Iran) 20 years ago. And yes, attacking Syria weakens its close allies Iran and Russia … and indirectly China.
The U.S. Africa Command bills itself as a force for “humanitarian” intervention in Africa – but the only humans it serves are outside the continent. “The US has recently pushed itself into Libya, Uganda, Somalia, Sudan and elsewhere, and now has its eyes set on Mali.”

Although I do not always mention it in business, I always have something of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in my mind as I view current events. A recent example is a Special Report I authored for Africa PreBrief, “300,000,000 Reasons: What China Really Wants In Africa.”
