The following article is the quickest translation I ever made, and I still haven’t finished. The first obstacle I’m facing is that I don’t speak Dutch, so I used Google translator and abused one good hearted native Dutch (thanks, R, kisses) . The advantage is that I worked on the issue during my career in a Serbian weekly ten years ago. And I have very good memory.
There we go:
” Mabel Wisse Smit (1968.), Princess Mabel since her marriage to Queen Beatrix’s second son, is ‘extreme in everything’, one of her best friends said long time ago in an interview with this newspaper. Mabel, she added, is extreme in her intelligence, her sense of adventure, her ambition and her charm. Not to forget her choice of partners.”
It was said that at the end of the 1980s Mabel Wisse Smit, then in her early twenties, has had a relationship with a drug dealer Klaas Bruinsma, who was liquidated in 1991 in Amsterdam. And it was said that Mabel Wisse Smit, when screened, as all future members of the Royal House must be, had lied to Prime Minister Balkenende. ‘There is no remedy for falsehood’, he said on 12 December 2003, when the case came to a climax.
The Royal House, crime, a hint of sex, and all that in the Calvinist Netherlands, and then such a high-profile woman – an eruption of cynicism and malicious delight stirred the Netherlands. Mabel Wisse Smit was the ‘gangster girl’ for weeks in the newspapers and on television. Nothing seemed as important as knowing whether she was spending nights with Klaas Bruinsma on his yacht and whether they have had sex. Paul Rosenmöller, former party leader of GroenLinks, asked that directly in a television interview, after she married Prince Johan Friso. Her eyes widened as she said: ‘Except for Friso, you are the first person to ask me that. And the answer is: no.’
Paul Rosenmöller also asked her how she felt about her name so frequently being linked with men and power. Mabel Wisse Smit answered: ‘If women are successful when they are young, people often think it has to do with their relationships with men.’ She thought that was ‘sexist’.
But when she said that on television, in November of 2004, she already had been rehabilitated for some time. Newspapers and weeklies wrote of her marriage, in April of that same year, of her work for the American billionaire and philanthropist, George Soros, of her talent for bringing people together to work cooperatively, a talent that had contributed to making possible the Rose Revolution in Georgia in December of 2003 and January of 2004. Mabel Wisse Smit was one of those who organised the use of Soros’s money to send extra observers to Georgia when President Shevardnadze, favourably disposed to the Russians, held elections, to check whether these were being conducted honestly. When it was established that this was not the case, new elections were announced. Without a civil war, the democratic Michail Saakasjvili, with Western leanings, came to power.
And then, at the end of August 2003, the Netherlands’ most renowned crime journalist, Peter R. de Vries, decided to get to the bottom of the case. He tracked down one of Bruinsma’s former bodyguards, the Chilean, Charlie da Silva. On television he said he was certain that Mabel Wisse Smit had been his boss’s girlfriend. That was when the ‘yes she did – no she didn’t’ slanging match started that lasted until 12 December 2003, the day Prime Minister Balkenende said there was no remedy for falsehood. Prince Johan Friso and Mabel Wisse Smit were later to express their heartfelt indignation about this: they had told no lies; at the most they hadn’t told the whole truth. Why should they?
At the United Nations in New York in 1993, she got to know Mohamed Sacirbey, ten years her senior and married. But that did not stop them from openly beginning a relationship with each other. In 1992, when the war in Bosnia had just broken out, he had been requested by President Alija Izetbegovic to internationally promote the Bosnian cause, as Foreign Minister.
Mabel Wisse Smit became one of Sacirbey’s lobbyists. In the Netherlands she set up the European Council for Peace on the Balkans. She found people like Thatcher and Giscard d’Estaing willing to lend their names to the cause. Sacirbey represented Bosnia at the peace treaties concluded in Dayton, Ohio in 1995. Then he stepped down as Foreign Minister and once more became Ambassador to the United Nations in New York.
The Bosnian government was responsible for his arrest there in 2003. It was said that, under his responsibility, 2.5 million dollars went missing from the UN mission during the war. In January 2005. , Sacirbey was extradited to Bosnia by the United States.
Shortly after Dayton, Mabel Wisse Smit and Sacirbey ended their relationship. In 1998, she was approached by the Open Society Institute in New York to set up an office in Europe. The World Economic Forum in Geneva pointed her out as one of the future world leaders.
At the end of 2000, Mabel Wisse Smit was introduced by her friend Laurentien Brinkhorst to Prince Johan Friso. Laurentien Brinkhorst was then the fiancée of Friso’s brother Constantijn. When her son announced his engagement in 2003, queen Beatrix said she was ‘especially pleased’ with Mabel, ‘her very loving and talented, future daughter-in-law’.
Princess Mabel still works in Brussels, at the Open Society Institute of George Soros. Once the screening by the Intelligence Services [AIVD] had not turned up any more damaging facts, she once again became the ambitious, brilliant networker she had been before the Klaas Bruinsma affair. Prince Friso has been Director of the Space Faculty of the INO [the Dutch Organisation for Applied Scientific Research] since March of 2004. The couple is no longer a subject for the serious press. The tabloids were concentrating on their first child.
The work of Mabel Wisse Smit in the Dutch media was described as “charity” but that’s nonsense: her employer, the Open Society Institute, is a political organization par excellence, and has never hidden. The OSI exists to the liberal-conservative ideas of the philosopher Karl Popper to wear – according to the interpretation of mega-speculator George Soros.
The social philosophy of Karl Popper is easy to summarize: ‘open society’ essentially means ‘free market’. For an international currency speculator, his liberalism an attractive philosophy.
In any case, Mabel was politically active since 1994, and especially with a right-wing agenda.
In 1993 she was an intern at the UN: it is not something that you just arrange through the internship coordinator -some mighty protegee or the right people with the right contacts. That’s an entrance to the world of international politics, and Mabel Wisse Smit went further in that direction. She worked at the OSI, in charge of the Western military interventions, and the imposition of a free-market economy, even by war.
George Soros and his foundations propagate an ultra-liberal ideology: it is based on the absolute moral superiority of liberal society, whereas their liberalism is an obligation that has to emerge the entire world, by the conquer and later liberalization.
The OSI seeks an Atlantic-oriented Europe of national states, led by the United States – the model on which NATO is based. When many Eastern Europeans fled their homelands, Soros combined his globalism with anti-communism. The expectation of these exiles was that after the breakup of the multi-ethnic states such as Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union, the new national states would enter the free market, and accept the leadership of the U.S.
In most cases this presumption came true. And it also explains the strategy of the OSI:
to promote liberalism, by ethnic divisions and separations encouraging.
This essay (published in the magazine of the U.S. defense academy) helps the future of the OSI to be understand. It advocates a strategy of the U.S. ‘unnatural’ multi-ethnic states breaking up, and replace by ‘natural’ ethnic states.
“We destroyed or helped destroy 11 empires in our 250-year old epoch, while the remaining few – Portuguese, Dutch, Belgian – died of decay. The fundamental difficulty remaining, apart from mankind’s innate tendencies, is that those empires twisted the world into unnatural shapes. Although the empires are gone, the treacherous boundaries they established remain. Empires drew borders based not upon popular preference or human affinities, but as a result of conflicts, competition, and compromise with other empires…. Instead of using our might in vain attempts to force those who hate one another to live together – our “no-divorce” approach to foreign policy – we should lead the way in developing mechanisms to amend borders peacefully – or as peacefully as possible.”
Mabel Wisse Smit is also an eager supporter of the Soros ideology, – otherwise she could never find herself in a top job at the OSI. That seems to me more important than a relationship with Klaas Bruinsma. She is the director of the Brussels office of the OSI, which is directly under the headquarters in New York . Along with the office in Budapest, OSI-Brussels regulates the flow of funds to the national Soros foundations in several Eastern European countries.
It co-ordinates the co-operation with Western governments and international organizations – and therefore also with the EU. Soros activities are often co-financed by other agencies in Eastern Europe, especially the EU. The Brussels office also supervises the policy of the new members of the EU – and the EU uses the ‘values’ of the OSI to penetrate. This may include, for example, that the new Member States liberalism in nursery schools should teach, or that universities are in English.
Mabel Wisse Smit has been directly involved in three organizations. First there was the European Action Council for Peace in the Balkans – not to be confused with the American Action Council for Peace in the Balkans “. The EACPB was founded in 1994, and the future Dutch princess Mabel had a relationship with the Bosnian representative to the UN, Mohammed Sacirbey, which lasted until 1998 according Sacirbey.
From this period Mabel Wisse Smit and Willemijn Proceedings started the War Child Netherlands organization. This actually was the Dutch branch of the previously established British War Child. Two years later she became the head of the Organization.
War Child Netherlands is formed by a political lobby to serve a political cause – the cause of Bosnian independence and Western intervention. Mabel Wisse Smit remained four years on the Board of War Child sitting, until 1999, while she also worked at the EACPB. The two organizations shared an office for three consecutive addresses: War Child paid the rent of Lauriergracht Singel 126 and 118.
It is unclear what the EACPB has done for many years, there are well-sounding names in a Committee of Recommendation list, but the organization does not even have a website. It is also unclear who paid it, as well as on what Mabel lived in the years between internship and first permanent job.
Since 1997 Mabel was on the payroll of the George Soros Open Society Institute. On the website of the OSI Education Support Unit she’s titled the “Executive Director” of the EACPB, same as in OSI. Mabel Wisse Smit has always had her political work based on the humanitarian fundraising, and that’s the case of the ‘ War Child’ in general, which was the 90s closely connected with the pro-intervention lobby.
Also Wisse Smit positioned the Amsterdam lawyer Phon van den Biesen in the administration of both the EACPB as War Child. Van den Biesen was not an independent figure: he was a lawyer of the state of Bosnia. He along with Mohammed Sacirbey spoke at the International Court, when Bosnia accused Yugoslavia for genocide.
The War Child Netherlands is partly paid by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – € 3.7 million for the years 2003-2006. The British War Child was founded with money from the British Foreign Office, specifically the ODA led by Thatcher’s former chief of staff Andy Bearpark.
Mabel Wisse Smit a was part of Bosnian Muslim lobby: until October 2003 that fact got little attention in the media.
It is hard to imagine what kind of pro-Bosnian and anti-Serb hysteria reigned at that time. The Soviet Union had just gone down, and there was a great revival of nationalism. The war in Bosnia was portrayed as the new Holocaust, and opponents of the intervention were labeled as fascists. Especially the controversial ‘Serbian attack’ on Sarajevo was used to create a myth, and it was achieved through picturing the situation in Bosnia as a battle between good and evil, an attack on the culture, tolerance, on humanity, on the art, the literature, and the city. Even the special terminology a.e. word ‘urbicide’ (city murder) has been coined to describe it.
Public opinion was literally edited with horror stories, such as the Serbian “rape camps” – that were never found.
All this was the case of the Bosnian nationalism (in several variants), and Croatian nationalism, Slovenian nationalism, Macedonian nationalism, and later also the Albanian nationalism in Kosovo. Mabel Wisse Smit has worked to establish closed national states in the Balkans. It is thanks to people like her that Soros and NGO succeeded in enforcing their agenda.
After the war in Bosnia – from 1996 – she focused on Serbia alone, and soon on Serbian Kosovo.
A large part of the former Bosnia-lobbying campaign has simply continued, now with the Kosovo Albanians, who were portrayed as the victims and took over the role BOsnian Muslim separatists previously played.
Western intervention was the aim again, but through the overthrow of Milosevic and the ‘liberalization’ of Serbia.
And after the NATO aggression on Serbia 1999. Milosevic was forced to retreat from Kosovo. He was then replaced by a pro-Western, USA, NATO supported, payed by Sorosh opposition movement, supported by a part of the army.
The Soros foundations supported and controlled the opposition in Serbia. Mabel Wisse Smit was, because of its coordinating role at the office of the OSI, certainly also involved. Zoran Djindjic, assassinated later, was seen in the West as a future leader of Serbia, but he never received widespread support. After the fall of Milosevic, the “normal work” of the OSI began – promoting liberalism and privatization.
