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 Kalachinkov rifles. The terrorist is surrounded with blood splatter.
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… Read more »


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)… Read more »

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?

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 http://m.disclose.tv/news/were_the_paris_attacks_
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

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

http://www.globalresearch.ca/confirmed-french-gov… 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,… Read more »

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

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!!

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.

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 (?)

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

I didn't find the cover you mention here on the website of the Economist. Where can I find it?

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.

Does anybody noticed a football on the bottom left ? The Superbowl 2016 will be in San Francisco on Feb 7. I would not go to that game!!!

Why was there no scheduled U2 concert on Friday the 13th? They were booked for 4 nights and skipped a Friday night? I thought Friday was a big night out?

Plus we now have Bono at a concert saying "we must be a Europe of peace and accept all refugees" – following the instructions of his globalist masters. That preening, narcissistic little creep is a slave to evil. He always irritated me, but this is beyond the pale.

And he pretends to be a christian. Makes me sick.

Just a quick thanks and if no one noticed, Merkel with her hands and button makes an all seeing eye. Keep up the good work

It is also interesting that none of the band members were killed.

Is it possible that 11.5 11.3 also means 11-5=6 and 11-3=8 08/06/2015 the G7 Summit meeting 2015 ? The summit focused on the global economy and climate change as well as on key foreign, security and development issues.

Alot of amazing comments on the original article posted 44 weeks ago:

Worth a look

Two arrows = two attacks
11.13.15 Paris
11.31.15 (???)

There is no 11.31.15, so my shot is 12.1.15, anagram of 121(11×11) & 15(3×5)
Rearranged: 1.12.15 or 10.12.15 (crescent moon)

References to the number 121 were seen in the movies Back to the future (Jigawatt), Dark Knight Rises (truck) and recently San Andreas (helicopter)

There was also an interesting message in the 11B-X-1371 video:
Strike an arrow through the heart of the Eagle

The real Eagle has not been hit yet, so I think there's possibly more to come

These numbers surely show the exact date of a massacre in Paris, you are fully right. Easy to decipher. If it is 2015 year, 5 goes to year. 11 is a month and 3 adds to 1 before, giving 13. Why is that? The numbers Illuminatis and these spirit guides (demons) are liking are 11, 13 and 33. 33 is a number of mastery in the sect. The higher you go, the higher number you receive. People may see these numbers often also on their clocks and in many other ways as if other numbers were almost not existing. It is a sign they are in danger and should pray and seek a spiritual help by well qualified priests.

"This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin." The attacks happened during a crescent moon, another symbol for islam… from Wikipedia: "In the Middle Ages, the star and crescent combination was not associated with Islam, and does appear in Christian iconography. The use of the crescent symbol (without the star) on Muslim flags is first seen by Europe during the Crusades." Holy war is on!

It's unique how strategically planned this was. "The Economist" can ideally show dates or perhaps the events that happened. 11.5 could symbolize November – 5 events will take place, as they did (Beirut, Japan, France, Mexico, and Baghdad). 11.3 – only 3 of them were bombings (Beirut, France, Baghdad). Or, the numbers could be rearranged to show 11.3, November 13th, chaos in Paris, November 15th, Paris fires back, which goes well with the ISIS terrorist in the background with the faded splatter behind him. I want to know though, if the mushroom cloud near him is representing upcoming wars or if it symbolizes the bombings that have already happened?

The Paris shootings were more of a provocation than a terrorist attack. By shooting people in wheelchairs, the message that came through was, “C’mon and fight us you pussies. What does it take to piss you cowards off?” That’s Netanyahu talking — impersonating the enemy. Ahh…and the piece de resistance – another indestructible passport. Problem–Reaction–Solution In a sane world, even taken at face value this event would be the catalyst for a strong nationalist movement. Police and military would hand a rifle to every white European French man and deport all foreign invaders executing on the spot those who refused to leave. Borders would be enforced by the full force of the military and civilian militia and they would dust off the old guillotines for their quisling “leaders” who allowed these enemies through their gates. Of course what will really happen is they’ll drop a few bombs on Israel’s enemies… Read more »
Russia is in Syria, and has strong ties with both Iran and now Iraq, and they are not leaving anytime soon. To bring about a false flag that would push US and NATO forces into Syria and Iraq, in order to directly confront the Bear is tantamount to starting a full fledged nuclear exchange. As stated numerous times, Israel is a tiny piece of land that is only one (maybe two) nuclear bombs away from being obliterated. Even Netanyahu, the head monster of Israel, must know that every nuclear armed country on Earth has at least one thermonuclear weapon aimed at his country. Even the fallout from nearby Middle Eastern countries will make life quite unpleasant for the Self Chosen Vampires (scv). Since the US and England are so good at killing civilians, such as Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Vietnam, etc., it follows that Russia, China and maybe other nuclear powers… Read more »
Decidedly the timing seems too co-incidental. A Russian plane is downed, ISIS claims responsibility, and Charlie Hebdo brings out an atrocious cartoon. Then on 13th Novewmber, 2015, various world leaders speak of the danger of World War III as a result. The numbers 13, 11 and 15 have importance in the Jewish Kabbala. So, oh me, oh my, Netanyahu offers France anti-terrorism support. It is recalled that the war on terror was initiated after 9/11 which was falsely blamed on Moslem newly trained pilots. America has paid a price in her sons killed and her coffers being gradually emptied. On the other hand, many leaders there, some of dual citizenship, have benefitted from manufacture of armaments and their ongoing drug trade. Iraq virtually has been destroyed. Thus a war on the West was engineered and provoked. Now many Moslems are angry with surely hopes of retaliation. Americans themselves are fed… Read more »

Charlie Hebdo issued a frontpage cartoon after the "attacks". It showed a man with bulletholes where champagne pours out. If you hold the picture upside down you'll see it represents a chanoeka chandelier. Also the magazine was called Harakiri before zionists bought it and called it ichrael hebdo.

There is sand underneath the painting which point to where the attackers will come from.

And the ball of football with green grass spot, near the feet of Alice, to represent explosions during the match France – Allemagne at the Stade de France…

there is open hand above Putin’s head and drop of blood on his sunglasses…
some might say : Mr Putin be aware ,be very aware …

I knew it , just after the attack i directly came here
and did u see the Rock thing???? with US flag, that doesnt means about the concert no?

Numbers on the front page of The Economist 2015: 11.5 – 11.3 (can be read 22 – 53)
Luke 22 verse 53: When I was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me.
But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

not too sure that the 11.3 ….11.5 are dates it works but if you look those up as bible quotes its pretty scary…11.3…
The integrity of the upright (good people)will guide them,But the falseness of the treacherous will destroy them.(our governments)

11.5 was just as scary ..I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion. . . . Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession and a 1000 year reine of saints shall begin..WTF thats some fkd up s**t and same passage but in another version it says the world will have a common union a fellowship (NWO)

11 5 11 3 may refer to November 18.

11 (november) 18 (5+11+3)

Some event of unprecedented significance may roll out that day. November 18 is the 322th day if a year. We saw lot of 322, March 22 and Easter in lots of hollywood movies these years.

November 13 (317th) marks the week the would shakes. 317 may refer to St Patrick day. Ppl drink plenty on that day. Movies these years carrying plenty of scenes of drinking. The movie Unstoppable mentioned explicitly November 13.

I am a chinese. I know the Anglo Saxon missing rolls out soon. Chinese will fall predicted in the last scene of Surrogates.

its like an anagram for 11 13 15

Did anyone notice the poster in front of the Asian kid eating noodles says 'panic.'?

yes that probably means "food poisoning"

Nothing in this world is coincidental. Since the existence of the Illuminati and the world we live in s**t. I know that when a country "suffering" of some attack is because they are behind every tragedy. It's a damn ball hypocrisy. In Syria every day thousands of people die and nobody says or does anything. The government, social media, singers, etc… not a more thing that washing brain… they dont care about us! Just JESUS SAVE US!

VC, how can u forget to mention in this timely & accurate article, the fact that it was this Black Friday the 13th, (Oct, 1307) that all these Knights of Templar (The masked Freemasons) were ordered to be arrested by King Philip 4 of France to be killed for building Satanic Temples.
Today, the same masked terrorists (ISIS) might have taken revenge as they want their satanic temple rebuilt in Aqsa Mosque of Jerusalem (Palestine). Two arrows (Economist cover image) to Muslims and Christians show they have to sacrifice for this NWO episode. Dirty barbaric game altogether.

angle between arows only points to hollande

So now we know about that dates…

But WTF is Spiderman doing there????

maybe they meant Batman or should I say Bataclan?

maybe that means like the Illuminati, like spiders, they made their spider web ,all over the world

Maybe it's a reference to Paris and France famous free climber Alain Robert a.k.a. Spider Man. He is hanging above the Louvre painting and the date of the "attack". It could be this + plus another meaning, they like dualism. That why the egg shaped earth could represent the reptilian theory + superbowl 50 false flag. Also the two faced earth looks like the nimkenpoop that is Aleister Crowley.

The peace sign looks like the sinai peninsula, left finger the gulf of suez, right finger gulf of aquaba. At the juncture of the two is Sharm el Sheikh where the russian passenger plane was going when bombed. That's a lot of coincidences.

Too sad to be true. Our biggest condolence to innocent lives! VC is simply too much! thank you ! This morning news about some guy driving 400 miles from Germany with some ominous antique looking piano, just to play John Lennon's 'imagine' kinda explains a lot further,considering the meaning of the lyrics I read in an article previously… 'I hope some day you join '''us''' and the world will live as one….??'
