In 1829 there were 3315 masonic lodges in the world. In 1986 there were 6 155 000 freemasons in 32 370 lodges. According to official sources in 1998 there were 8660 lodges with 358 214 freemasons in England, and in Scotland 1175 lodges. In total there are roughly 600 000 freemasons in Great Britain. In France there are 120 000 freemasons in 700 lodges (Ghislaine Ottenheimer, Renaud Lecadre, "Les Freres Invisible", Paris, 2001, p. 21).
In Switzerland there are 3450 masons in 52 lodges, in Holland 162 lodges with 6673 freemasons. Spain has only 2000 freemasons in 96 lodges thanks to Franco and the Catholic Church. Finland has 5500 freemasons. In the year 2001 there were seven million freemasons worldwide (Ghislaine Ottenheimer, Renaud Lecadre, "Les Freres Invisible", Paris, 2001, p. 117).
On 8 March 1775, the first masonic lodge for women opened in Paris. Therefore March 8 was later celebrated as International Women's Day. The initiative was taken by the freemason Clara Zetkin. The international feminism is another part of the masonic destructive ideology.
In 1931, there were under the wings of the Grand Lodge 24 lodges in Yugoslavia. The freemason Josip Broz Tito did not ban freemasonry in communist Yugoslavia, as the freemason Castro also failed to do in Cuba.
During the 1980s, the Serbian freemasons began to be very active again and in June 1990 a new Serbian Grand Lodge was established in Belgrade with support from Vereinigte Grosslogen von Deutschland (The United Grand Lodge of Germany). It became known as 'Yugoslavia' and its purpose is to fight the evil of nationalism.
In the United States there were officially 4.5 million freemasons in 16 000 lodges in the 1960s. Today there are only 2.5 million remaining. According to the defector 32-degree freemason Bill Schnoebelen, it becomes increasingly harder to recruit new members, since aversion towards freemasonry is growing. There are also lodges for children and a possible nursery for future freemasons would be the Boy Scout movement.
Of the 41 presidents of the United States 14 were freemasons, or roughly 30 per cent. In 1929, the year of the stock market crash, about 67 per cent of all members of Congress belonged to the freemasonry (Paul. A. Fisher, "Behind the Lodge Door", Rockford, Illinois, 1994, p. 246).

In Taiwan there are only 10 lodges with 754 members active. In Japan only 18 lodges with 3743 freemasons have managed to establish themselves (1980). The first English-speaking lodge opened in 1865, the first Japanese- speaking one not until 1954. In 1867, the Yokohama Masonic Hall was constructed. During the Second World War freemasons were arrested as traitors in Japan (Jasper Ridley, "The Freemasons", London, 2000, p. 239).
In Thailand the lodge St. John No. 1702 was founded as early as 1911. The second Scottish lodge established in Pattaya not until 1993 under the name Lodge Pattaya West Winds No. 1803. The following year a French lodge was founded in Chiangmai and in 1995 an Irish lodge was established in Bangkok, called Morakot Lodge No. 945.
In French Indo-China (present-day Vietnam) there was a very lively masonic activity. The current communist regime has officially banned freemasonry, but as is usual in the communist countries the lodges carry on unofficially.
In Jordan only a few lodges are active. In Palestine an Israeli grand lodge was founded in 1933, prior to the proclamation of the State of Israel. In 1988 there were 60 masonic lodges with 3000 members ("List of Masonic Lodges", 1989, pp. 254-255).
Yitzhak Rabin, who was murdered on 4 November 1995, was masonic grand master in Israel. By 1998, there were 78 lodges in that small nation.
All African political leaders are freemasons connected to the Grand Orient of France (Ghislaine Ottenheimer, Renaud Lecadre, "Les Freres Invisible", Paris, 2001).
The Grande Oriente do Brazil was founded in Rio de Janeiro on 17 June 1822 and is today a powerful order in Latin America.
In Estonia there were 250 freemasons in 2003. The first lodge, called Isis, was founded as early as on 12 October 1773. According to the well-known Estonian freemason Gunnar Aarma, the Estonian President Konstantin Pats and commander-in-chief Johann Laidoner in the 1930s belonged to Swedish lodges ("Kuldne kroon Eesti lipul" / "The Golden Crown on the Estonian Flag", Tallinn, 1992, p. 35). After the fall of the Soviet power, the lodge Fooniks (Phoenix) was founded in Tallinn on 12 June 1993. At present there are six lodges, three in Tallinn, and one each in Tartu, Parnu, and Haapsalu. In addition a grand lodge was founded in Estonia in May 1999.
Toomas Hendrik lives is a member of the Trilateral Commission, which is run by the Illuminati, since that is a masonic organ (Vladimir Krasny, "The Children of the Devil", Moscow, 1999, p. 266).
The first Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Estonia was Arno Koorna in 1999, having become a freemason in Finland on 1 December 1991). On 19 September 1950, he had been named secretary of the Communist Party at the University of Tartu. Documentary evidence shows his career as a persecutor of nationalists and "the enemies of the people". He has never recanted. The Minister of Finance during the 1990s Siim Kallas was suspected of major embezzlement but was allowed to continue as though nothing had happened and was acquitted of all wrongdoing. During his tenure as head of the Bank of Estonia, he made sure that the famous masonic symbol of the all-seeing eye was put on the 50 crown banknotes. The freemasons are very keen on putting their magic symbols everywhere. In his propaganda pamphlet, Grand Master Koorna stresses the fact that the freemasons are law-abiding and loyal citizens. He maintains that freemasonry lacks an international centre, which is not true. Koorna is trying to trivialize the well-documented crimes of the freemasonry by claiming that there have only been occasional "digressions" from the true freemasonry. In an interview for the daily Aripaev (Business Day) on 13 December 1999 he asserts: "We are good men, who wish to be even better."
P2 - the Most Infamous Masonic Sect
The most infamous masonic lodge in Europe is called P2, which has been interpreted as Propaganda 2, but should rather be read Palladism 2 (Albert Pike was the founder of this very secret Palladian freemasonry), whose centres were in Charleston, Rome, and Berlin.
P2 officially was established in 1966 by Giordano Gamberini, grand master of the Grande Oriente d'ltalia, with a membership of 18 000. In actual fact a Palladian masonic Council in Rome formed by Giuseppe Mazzini and Albert Pike, was developed into a secret Masonic lodge in 1877 called Propaganda Massonica. This was introduced for those freemasons that visited the capital from other parts of Italy, and the king himself was a member. Later its 23 councils became centres for terrorism.
Together with the Illuminati, the Grand Orient of France played a leading role in the Jacobine takeover in France in 1789, the event known as the "Great" French Revolution. The Grand Orient was under the total control of the Illuminati, according to several historians, among those Nesta Webster.
After the Second World War, when freemasonry again was legal in Italy, the Italian freemasonry was reorganized by the Americans. The CIA emissary Gilliotti personally began cleansing the Grande Oriente d'ltalia of less important members. Gianni Rossi and Francesco Lombrassa stated in their book "In the Name of the 'Lodge'" ("In nome della 'loggia': Le prove di come la massoneria segreta la tentato di impadronarsi dello stato italiano. Iretroscena della P2"), published in 1981 that "the Americans, especially those representing the Mafia and the CIA within the freemasonry, held... the future of the Grande Oriente in their hands".
