Raelian Movement spokesperson says Philippe Remond ‘was probably killed by order of the French army for saying publicly that the French military has no business remaining in Ivory Coast.’
LAS VEGAS, May 15 – According to a statement released this morning by the International Raelian Movement, Philippe Remond, a professor at the Institut National Polytechnique Felix Houphouet Boigny in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast, and a member of the Raelian Movement, was found murdered in his hotel room in Yamoussoukro the day after Alassane Ouattara’s forces took control of the country.
“Philippe Remond was one of those French nationals who regularly denounced French interference in Ivory Coast issues,” said Brigitte Boisselier, spokesperson for the IRM, adding that an example of Remond’s eloquent protests may be viewed below.
“When he became a Raelian, he also actively conveyed Rael’s ideas concerning the African continent,” Boisselier added. “On an Ivory Coast TV channel as well as in his preceding press releases, he openly condemned the French intervention of siding with Ouatarra [now the country’s new president].”
She said members of the Raelian Movement in Ivory Coast have no doubt that Remond was assassinated on orders from Paris.“He was a fervent advocate of Rael’s peaceful solution to the crisis in Ivory Coast, a solution without military intervention,” Boisselier explained, adding that another leader of the Raelian Movement in Ivory Coast, Zadou Azael, who is also its doyen, “was manhandled by Ouatarra supporters.”
“Guide Zadou Azael was molested, assaulted, humiliated and threatened with death, then robbed of his money and his car, which were stolen by the armed, republican forces of President Ouatarra,” she said. “And it should be noted that Zadou Azael belongs to the Bete ethnic group, the same ethnic group that former President Gbagbo belonged to. Was he threatened because of his ethnicity or because of his political and religious beliefs?”
“For decades”, Boisselier said, “African Raelians have been advocating a peaceful solution for conflicts on the continent.”
“We’re calling for the abolition of colonial borders and restoration of the borders used by ancient kingdoms, which was land division based on ethnic groups,” she explained. “The return to those pre-colonial divisions will help restore the harmonious, interethnic relations that prevailed in Africa before Western countries imposed their new, arbitrary borders. This restoration [of original boundaries] could be achieved through the establishment of the United Kingdoms of Kama [Kama was the indigenous, precolonial term for Africa.]
“Philippe Remond has paid dearly for daringly proposing and defending these generous and conscious solutions that displease the settlers,” Boisselier concluded. “In view of his assassination and the aggression suffered by the doyen of Ivory Coast Raelians, and considering the way French Raelians are mistreated in France, we are genuinely concerned for the lives of Raelians in Ivory Coast. We therefore call for an end to military and paramilitary French Army operations in that country!”
Years ago, everybody knew that the earth was flat, everybody knew that the sun revolved around the earth, and today everybody knows that life on earth is either the result of random evolution or the work of a supernatural God. Or is it? In “Message from the Designers”, Rael presents us with the vast amount of information that he received during his UFO encounters in 1973 - a third option: all life on earth having been created by advanced scientists from another world.
Yes to Human Cloning
Today’s new cloning technology is the first step in the quest for immortality or eternal life. What past religions used to promise only after death in a mythical paradise will soon be a scientific reality here on Earth – this is Rael’s challenging conclusion in an incisive and wide-ranging review of how science is about to revolutionize all our lives. With rare vision, Rael sketches details of an amazing future in which our nascent technology will revolutionize and transform the world. Nanotechnology will make agriculture and heavy industry redundant; super-artificial intelligence will quickly outstrip human intelligence – and eternal life will be possible in a computer without the need for any biological body! These developments are not 22nd-century science fiction. All this will happen in the next 20 years – and this book’s purpose is to prepare us for an unimaginably beautiful world turned into a paradise, where nobody will ever need to work again!
Rael, the predicted “Maitreya from the West”, shares his teachings and insights in this wonderful book of extracts taken from the many Raelian seminars at which he has taught over the past 30 years. A multitude of topics are covered in this book, including love, happiness, serenity, spirituality, contemplation, the myth of perfection, non-violence, science, loving relationships and much more. This is essential reading for anyone interested in developing his or her potential and wishing to live a more fulfilling and joyful life.
“Geniocracy,” the 1st English edition of Rael's classic work, allows a new generation to consider an ingenious worldwide solution to man’s biggest problems: war, hunger, poverty and the exploitation of genius under “mediocracies” backed by military might.The solution, says the author, is geniocracy: collegial government by geniuses elected under a selective democracy. Such a system – revolutionary but truly just – would work for the good of all rather than just a privileged few, Rael explains.After illustrating how geniocracy would work on various levels, he asks us to consider how scientific advances under collegial government by geniuses – geniocracy – would create a better world: one in which every person would be entitled not only to basic necessities of life but to an existence in which “the right to work would be replaced by the right to self-fulfillment.” Can geniocracy work? Rael asks only that you read this book and decide for yourself!
