A Solomon Islands sellout? Martin

Pin It

In a move that shocked many in the region, the prime minister of the Solomon Islands confirmed Wednesday his nation has entered into a security agreement with China. It’s the first of its kind for the communist nation in the region. The easternmost island of the Solomon Islands chain is a little over 1,300 miles from the U.S. territory of American Samoa,” according to a 2022 online article in The Western Journal. 

Solomon Islands, home to 700,000 people, is a sovereign country consisting of six major islands and over 900 smaller islands in Oceania, to the east of Papua New Guinea and northwest of Vanuatu. More than 300 islands are inhabited.  

Did Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare accept the 30 pieces of silver from a despot? Remember how Judas sold out Jesus in the Bible. Is the next step a China military base on the islands? Why would any leader trust the ruler of communist China? The recent large-scale COVID outbreak lockdown hoax in Shanghai, China’s largest city, is but one more example of a ruthless regime. Is China punishing world trade by misusing and harming their own people?  

“So, you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?” –Ayn Rand 

“The Solomon Islands’ diplomatic U-turn to China away from Taiwan — and accusations of associated bribes — angered many in the archipelago and, combined with long-standing local grievances, led to widespread rioting in November that left four people dead and much of the capital of Honiara burned to the ground,” the Washington Post recently reported. 

Lookout. When diplomatic recognition switched from Taiwan to Beijing in 2019 – it signaled the beginning of the end. Making a deal with the devil never fares well. Riots erupted with protests by citizens but to no avail. 

“A nation will be strong when it has a fair and just king. A nation will be weak when it has a king who is selfish and demands gifts.” – Proverbs 29:4 Bible ERV
