The Ark of Gabriel: Unearthing an Ancient Secret Weapon
Pope Francis’s meeting with the Patriarch Kirill? Russian ships found docking at Arabic ports? What could possibly be so important that would bring religious entities who haven’t met in 1,000 years, together? Some believe they know the answer: to move the Ark of Gabriel from the Grand Mosque in Mecca, to a secret base in Antarctica where it could be safely kept.
What is the Ark of Gabriel?
Not to be confused with the Ark of the Covenant, which houses the two stone slabs of the Ten Commandments, the Ark of Gabriel, which is not mentioned in the Christian Bible, is a mysterious device, a secret weapon that many people are only beginning to learn about. Its legend has been perpetuated by the havoc it has wreaked over the centuries, as well as its potential to be unleashed upon the world.
This legend is said to have ties to both the Christian and Islamic faiths in that Archangel Gabriel is sacred to both — he foretold the birth of Jesus and dictated the entirety of the Koran to the Prophet Muhammed.
When the Roman Catholic Crusaders pillaged Constantinople in 1204, the Eastern Orthodox Church was able to squirrel away the contents of a manuscript from the Hagia Sophia Cathedral, titled “Gabriel’s Instructions to Muhammed.” The document details the message that the archangel gave to Muhammed in a cave near the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It tells of a box — an ark — that holds a “tremendous power” and belongs only to God. This ark was forbidden to be used until the “Resurrection Day,” and until then, buried in an altar within “the place of worship of angels before the creation of man.”
Signifying the End of the World
To the followers of Islam,“the place of worship of angels before the creation of man” could be no place other than Mecca — the holy city where all devout Muslims must attempt a hajj, a yearly five-day pilgrimage, at least once in their lifetimes. And it is here that the Ark of Gabriel was said to be buried, beneath the Grand Mosque, quietly waiting for the end of the world.
But due to the ever-growing influx of pilgrims coming to pray at the Grand Mosque, the structure has had to continually expand to keep up. During such construction efforts, a crew of laborers purportedly discovered the Ark of Gabriel that had been secreted away for over a thousand years. The consequences were severe: On Sept. 11, 2015, a crane fell, causing 107 casualties, including the 15-man crew, and injuring as many as 238.
The conspiracy alleges that, as a cover-up, the spokesman for the Presidency of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet Mosque attributed the so-called accident to “a strong sandstorm, winds and torrential rains.” Why? A report that’s claimed to belong to the Russian Ministry of Defense says it was on this day that the construction crew attempted to remove the Ark, and it states that the workers were killed by a plasma emission that spewed up from the ground with such vengeance that it knocked over the massive crane.
Twelve days later disaster struck again, this time three days into the hajj, when millions had gathered from across the world to worship in Mecca, slaughtering at least 2,400 worshippers. The cause? A stampede of people whose origins have yet to be explained. However, many people believe it was another plasma emission, made after a second attempt to unearth the Ark.
What Do the Russians, the Pope, and the Patriarch Kirill Have to Do With The Ark of Gabriel?
In December 2015, Russian naval warships were seen docking in Jeddah, a key Saudi Arabian port city, not far from Mecca.
Shortly after the second grave accident, Grand Mosque emissaries decided they wouldn’t take anymore chances. They reached out to Patriarch Kirill, knowing not only that the Church was in possession of “Gabriel’s Instructions to Muhammed,” but that the instructions likely contained information on how to safely approach the Ark.
Two months later, the heads of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church met for the first time in 962 years, where it’s thought that the Pope gave the Patriarch Kirill the vital information that had been missing from the manuscript stolen at the Hagia Sophia in 1204. Immediately after their meeting, the Patriarch Kirill voyaged to Antarctica himself, to allegedly perform a ritual, using the ancient documents.
Of course, without any hard evidence, the Ark of Gabriel, and the rumors surrounding it, can only be relegated to conjecture. That said, it is comforting to think that some of the world’s most powerful entities would set aside their differences to come together and fend off the end of the world. But if it is true, the hope is that the Ark stays undisturbed in the most desolate region of the world for millennia to come.
Upon being briefed of the cataclysmic potential of the Ark of Gabriel, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin ordered his naval ships to transport the Ark (using the Kirill’s precautions) to Antarctica, where the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church stands as the only religious structure on the continent.
The Reporter Who May Have Learned the Truth Behind JFK's Assassination
Few historical events have sparked as many conspiracy theories as the JFK assassination, but when one looks at the evidence regarding the Kennedys’ history with the country’s organized crime families, it’s hard not to see the mob’s culpability. At least that’s what best-selling author, researcher, and former criminal defense attorney Mark Shaw has detailed over the course of several books, including his most recent titled, “The Reporter Who Knew Too Much.”
The reporter Shaw is referring to is Dorothy Kilgallen, arguably the most famous female journalist of her era, known for a syndicated column in the New York Journal-American, a nationally broadcast CBS radio show listened to by millions, and her role as star panelist of the celebrity game show “What’s My Line?”
Kilgallen met an untimely death in 1965 while investigating a strong suspicion that members of the New Orleans mafia may have been behind JFK’s assassination. Fanning the flames of conspiracy further, Kilgallen’s reported cause of death — acute ethanol and barbiturate intoxication — was uncannily similar to that of Marilyn Monroe, whose alleged suicide has been questioned interminably.
According to Shaw’s research, Kilgallen was one of few people who connected Jack Ruby — the Dallas nightclub owner who murdered Lee Harvey Oswald — to Carlos Marcello, the “Godfather” of the New Orleans mafia. Knowing the Kennedy family’s complicated ties to various mob syndicates, Oswald’s history of living in New Orleans, and Ruby’s affiliations with the mob, Kilgallen followed her instinct. She also happened to be the sole reporter to interview Ruby at his trial, out of hundreds who were present.
In 1965, Kilgallen embarked on an investigative trip to Louisiana to test her hypothesis, bringing only a hairstylist along with her. However, she quickly told him to return to New York and not mention to anyone she was down there. Shaw says he believes she uncovered some damning evidence implicating Marcello’s involvement in the Kennedy assassination, which she quickly realized could cost her her life. Kilgallen returned to New York and planned a return trip to New Orleans to meet a confidential informant, but was found dead just weeks before she was supposed to leave. She described her plans to meet the informant on her second trip as “cloak and daggerish.”
The idea that the mafia was behind Kennedy’s assassination isn’t a new one. It was well known that the family’s patriarch, Joe P. Kennedy Sr. had a convoluted history with a number of well-known figures in organized crime. Kennedy Sr.’s business dealings in Chicago led to his acquaintance with famous mob boss Frank Costello, who claimed the two were involved in bootlegging operations during prohibition. Though Kennedy Sr. denied this connection, he continued to build his vast fortune through exclusive distribution rights for world-renowned brands of scotch and other imported liquors when prohibition ended.
