Were the Paris Attacks Predicted on the January Cover of The Economist?



Were the Paris Attacks Predicted on the January Cover of The Economist?

The Economist released in January a cryptic cover entitled “The World in 2015” which featured several enigmatic images. Did it predict both terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015?

In the wake of the horrifying Paris attacks which cost the lives of (at least) 120 innocent people, a specific cover of The Economist immediately came to mind.

On January 8th 2015, I published an article entitled The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions, which analyzed its many messages. Indeed, the magazine cover dubbed “The World in 2015” contained several strange and sinister images which appeared to announce a violent year. Considering the fact the The Economist is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attends Bilderberg Conferences, one should take heed of warnings issued by those who can make them a reality.

For a detailed analysis of this cover, read this article.

Probably the most enigmatic part of the cover is the bottom right where we see two arrows with mysterious numbers, a pile of dirt and an old painting.

A closeup of the bottom right of the cover.

Looking back at what happened this year, this portion of the cover becomes rather troubling. It is a little too prophetic.

First, the painting next to the arrows is Leonardo Da Vinci’s La Belle Ferronière. That painting is currently located in the Louvre, in Paris.

Second, the numbers on the two arrows are 11.5 and 11.3. The Paris attacks occurred 11/13/15. The digits on the arrows can therefore be rearranged to make up the date.

The attack was claimed by ISIS. The Economist cover features an ISIS member holding a rifle.

Most Parisian casualties were caused by Kalashnikov rifles. The terrorist is surrounded with what looks like blood splatter.

The cover also features French President François Hollande … looking the other way.

As I stated in my article ISIS : A CIA Creation to Justify War Abroad and Repression at Home, I have little doubt that ISIS is used as a tool to further the occult elite’s Agenda including : Invading Syria and justifying police state surveillance in the West.

Let’s look back at the concrete effects of ISIS this year.

  1. Justified the invasion of Syria, finally destroying its status as a regional force;
  2. Accelerated the mass exodus of Syrians towards the West;
  3. Opened the floodgates of Syrian refugees around the Western world (boosted by the picture of a dead boy);
  4. Caused widespread panic in the Western world with Paris terror attack, justifying tighter monitoring and police state tactics.

Media are already reporting that one of the Paris terrorists had a Syrian passport on him and that Hollande is considering the attacks as an act of war.

In short, after guilting Western countries into accepting thousands of Syrian refugees, an Islamist attack causes fear, hatred and distrust towards Muslims in those very countries. Things are about to get complicated.

But, why would “they” purposely create such a horrific situation which involve so many innocent people? Well, for one, their motto is Ordo Ab Chao … Order out of chaos.

Hey folks. Many people who comment here seem scared."NWO is coming and illuminati will do this and thar." Lets just now get the facts right. Yes there is a truly evil and sinister"elite" who work for the antichrist. But their time is limited and they wilk fail in the end.Just read the bible it tells clearly that the beast will only rule for a period of time until the Almighty intervenes and puts an end to their ugly game. And even in this day and age,when things seem to get only darker the light gets brighter as well! From Gods eyes illuminati is like ants pee in Pacific Ocean.Not a biggie! Lets not be afraid – what the elite wants is that we are afraid.Thats why they put so much effort in fear mongering. They want us who are aware of their nasty works,to think they are in control of everything.Thru media it seems so,but God has already SET A DATE for their end.Isnt that a lovely thought? So now,lets just concentrate on prayer.Switch of the iphone and spend a little time with the maker of all things. Jesus will triumph!




Jewel, I really appreciate these kinds of comments on VC and similar sites. God has told us to be vigilant in the presence of evil, and we know that there are demons whose sole job it is to agitate/confuse believers. For me personally, this is one of the attacks I’m most susceptible to as I thirst for knowledge/truth. It’s just as important for us to put all of this into perspective as it is to try to go down the “rabbit hole” in search of knowledge and truth. Keeping our eye on the prize so to speak. Comments like yours help me stay present in the moment and realize that our world is doomed no matter how hard we try. I’ll never stop trying, but I have to remind myself to focus on the only endgame that matters, God’s.






Sur la couverture, il y a un drone qui ressemble à un jouet (transporte un colis Amazon avec dedans, les livres) = Période de Noël ? ; ce drone est à côté du champignon atomique. Entre les deux, il y a une fusée (Ariane ; Centre aérospatial) = Toulouse ; Golfech (centrale nucléaire de) est à moins de 100 kms de Toulouse.
Depuis le début de l’année 2015, il y a eu un grand nombre de survols de drones au-dessus de centrales nucléaires en France.
Ces deux faits mis côte à côte sont bien étranges. J’espère que non, parce que s’il y a un attentat sur une centrale nucléaire, ça sera épouvantable. Dramatique.

Corrélation entre le joueur de flûte et les deux poissons clowns =
La légende du joueur de flûte de Hamelin (Merkel, qui appelle les immigrés à venir en Allemagne, et cause ainsi la perte de son pays)
Amphiprion bicinctus est le seul poisson clown présent en mer Rouge.
Pays côtiers : Égypte ; Érythrée ; Yémen ; Soudan ; Djibouti, Arabie Saoudite.

A mon avis, cette couverture n’a pas fini de « parler »


When I translated your comments, I found them to be quite interesting. Especially the last one whereby you say that the cover has not finished speaking.


PS: Sachant que, ça vient de me faire tilt, le drone juste à côté pourrait faire penser à un satellite de télécommmunication ; et la Corée affirme officiellement que c’est ce qu’elle a envoyé. En tous les cas, qq soit la raison 1ere, cela (re)crée effectivement un débat international sur la bombe nucléaire.


sooo..anyone worried about that nuclear cloud from the back?

watching like you

well, it’s 2016, so we can’t use that one anymore


Thanks VC. Great article. And also Did you know; the Jewish owner of Bataclan who bought it in 1976 sold it 2 months before the attacks and flew to Israel? – Coincidence or am I being paranoid?


VC, great article, I just thought I'd let you know that I saw the exact same article on another site here's the link
Honestly, the more 'information' that comes out, the more I see this as a false flag. Also, funny how the western media has caused such a frenzy when just as many, if not more- people die every day. Ive read about how the elite feed off this low vibrational energy produced by the masses in these situations.
But there ship is sinking, kinda like cockroaches scuttling around just before they die, its their last push so let's be prepared!
Love & Light to All


Terrorist check list
Bombbelt : CHECK
Bullets : CHECK
Passport : phew almost forgot about that, always carry one when going on suicide mission. CHECK


Given what just happened with the Russian fighter jet being shot down by Turkey on 11/24, I'm looking at that plane that's ON. THE. GROUND. by the little girls feet and I'm thinking, could it be? …but then I look left to the helicopter with what appears to have s red cross on it, and I'm like I think it is!!!

For a helicopter looking for the pilots of the fighter jet was also shot down!

Smh, hidden in plain sight VC!! You're grest at what you do, and I thank you for teaching us as well 🙂


ISIS– Israeli State Intelligence Service

keilan… ISIS is Behind the Paris Attacks, But Who is Behind ISIS? While the West has attempted to maintain the terrorist organization possesses almost mythological abilities, capable of sustaining combat operations against Syria, Iraq, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, support from Iran, and now the Russian military – all while carrying out large-scale, high-profile terrorist attacks across the globe – it is clear that ISIS is the recipient of immense multinational state-sponsorship. By simply looking at any number of maps detailing territory held by various factions amid the Syrian conflict, it is clear that ISIS is not a “state” of any kind, but an ongoing invasion emanating from NATO-member Turkey’s territory, with its primary supply corridor crossing the Turkish-Syrian border between the Syrian town of Ad Dana and the western bank of the Euphrates River, a supply corridor now increasingly shrinking. Last week, Syrian forces re-established firm control over the Kweyris military airport, which was under siege for years. The airport is just 20 miles from the Euphrates, and, as Syrian forces backed by Russian air-power work their way up toward the Turkish border along the Syrian coast, constitutes a unified front that will essentially cut off ISIS deeper inside Syria for good.… Read more »


Don't forget what Netanyahu said last year:

“Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake,"


the mushroom cloud has not happened yet…but we are seeing missiles being tested..


In the bottom left of the cover is a small broken drum kit and a guitar. These are decorated with the British and US flags. This could be a reference to "British invasion" (the musical moment of the 60's, or an upcoming event?).

The union jack guitar has also been smashed through the drum kit – an act traditionally associated with the band The Who (WHO = World Health Organisation?).

I don't know if any of that means something or is nonsense! but it's interesting.


i was curious of the same


I think the 50 on the drums is in reference to the next Superbowl 50 and an attack at the halftime performance. Right beside the smashed american drum set is a world watching in the shape of a football about to be kicked.


I noticed that as well!!

watching like you

the first Beatle’s first stadium concert was in Shea Stadium in NY, so it could be a reference to that. It was the first rock-n roll stadium concert, so it was something no american band had yet done.


Another Ritual blood sacrifice carried out by CIA/Mossad Black ops agents. Don't believe everything you see on the Tel- a -vision.

The clerk

One more detail, IF you follow the projected line of the first arrow, you will see IT crosses Hollandes head.
The second arrow crosses the head of the Italien prime minister.


Just under the 2 faced "Aleister Crowley" earth. If you zoom in on the right of the mushroom cloud it's like half a "planets of the apes" face that covers half a reptilian/alien/grey? face. It makes me think of those devil faces in the smoke/dust on 9/11 (were they pyrotechnics or real evil?). You can find sideviews/profile of such alien/hybrid faces when you zoom in on a dollar bill, they come out of those "curly tentacles".

Question, most elite bobo's have black and white faces together with their ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh friend in the background but Napoleon hasn't? Was he a "good guy" and was France hijacked during the French "revolution"?


i dont know why, but since i was read this post and the first post about the cover, the picture of china panda, the battery and the sumo player, it keep bothering me, and still until now.
i think the battery is describing about the color of indonesian flag (you can search in google) and now indonesia, japan and china are collaborate in economic and even work together to build up the railway in indonesia.
based on the news in the television an newspaper, china has a plan to build a silk roadway in asia, and now they are start it from build the railway in indonesia, even the worker is coming from china, indonesia doesn't get involved.
i thought, it related to the picture in the cover, but why and what the agenda, it is still a mistery,


Regarding the Alice in Wonderland elements on The Economist cover, the high speed car belogns to the Bloodhound Project (the fastest wheel car in the world), but the bloodhound is a character too of ''Alice through the looking glass'', he's a servant of the Red Queen (and a Queen Elisabeth driving a jeep compares nearby), and may the turtle be the mock turtle of Alice? Is Queen Elisabeth somehow related to the Red Queen. Can there be any hidden meaning?


E Lizard beth- per David Icke


Some observations:
1) Illustration of a Music band with US stars and stripes (lower left) could refer to the Eagles of Death Metal Band
2) beside the band is a football shaped world – could refer to the soccer match in Paris attacks
3) Merkel forms the All Seeing Eye symbol with her hands. The Pied Piper from Hamlin could refer to the refugee situation in Germany as he is from Hamlin
4) VC mentions that 11.3 and 11.5 arrows if pertaining to coordinates point to Nigeria. Last Jan 3 2015 (1.3.15), there were bombings in Boko Haram, Nigeria
5) Behind Merkel is a lady (Julie Gayet – girlfriend of Hollande?) with the ISIS goddess headdress which was the subject of ISIS attack (?)

Kev Allah

What about the little sumo wrestler holding up the battery? Might that have something to do with the Fukushima reactor meltdown?


Okay, for many of the VC community we're all too aware of what's unfolding. Question now is what are we going to do about it? Sharing this article on social media will only do so much.
