Churchill Sent 2 Million Russian Refugees to Certain Death at End of WWII

‘They were certain that they would be killed or, at the very least, sentenced to the unspeakable horrors of the labor camps’.

Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 120

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

If it were Not for the Lebanese and Palestinians, Saudi Kingdom would Not be able to show a single evidence that it belonged to the 21st century world community

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 became law to restore balance to nature. This pioneering work began in 1976 with Earthjustice attorney Mike Sherwood and his efforts to protect the endangered Hawaiian palila.

Religion is the worst catastrophe that mankind invented since rulers realized that mankind long for the Absolute and the Eternal.

Religion was invented to efficiently and absolutely control society.

Nothing good ever came out of religion, and the mind of mankind has been dwarfed ever since religion was structured into daily rituals and customs.

1. You have the “normal” and regular faith of people going about their daily rituals in order to fit nicely into a community and blend in and considered normal people who can be trusted to maintain the tradition…

2. You have “The Dog” faith of a person in search of a community, a pack, a gang, and constantly looking around for a leader and a hierarchy to blindly submit to…

3. You have the faith of “The Perpetual Kid” who needs the care and attention of his parents. The older they get, the more bigoted: The substitute parent must be an “All Compassionate God

4. You have the faith of the Artist, a person willing to invest time and energy to beautify religious Temples, Cathedral… with ostentatious and fantastic monuments in order to attract faithful to religious gathering. Artists who sing, compose, and perform for the religious hierarchy. These artists are the preferred Idiots of the clerics.

5. You have the faith of “The Exceptional Penitent” who will never settle but to a compassionate God for forgiveness and absolution. Hidden crimes, real or fictitious, to survive this Valley of Darkness...

6. You have the faith of The Savior who cannot imagine a life without leading, a position in the pack that should lead to establishing a new sect, cult…

7. You have the faith of The Inquisitor who fakes Not to believe in anything, and tacitly doing everything to reach a situation of total belief in a “religion” and feeling in a position of answering any kinds of query and questions

8. You have the faith of The Idiot who long for the supernatural in order to fathom the notion of God and relying on his feeble mind to satisfy his longing

Depuis longtemps, les vivants partent pour mourir ailleurs, et les morts viennent toujours. Mort, vivant, la terre abhor le vide.

La fiction est l’art primordial des humains: l’imagination monsangeuse est la folle du logis.

On se raconte, des vrais et des fausses sentiments et d’occasions. Ecrire c’es prendre des vacances pour nous raffistoller la vie.

Les ecrivains assidus ne meurent jamais prematurement: ce desir urgent pour faire rire les gens de soi-meme et les faire sentir alienes

L’athéisme, ce tabou du monde musulman

Du Maghreb au Pakistan, en passant par l’Arabie saoudite, les athées sont de plus en plus nombreux. Enquête sur cet athéisme qui dérange et effraie le monde musulman.

Le Monde | Par Angeline Montoya (Londres, envoyée spéciale)

Bahous aimerait bien ne plus entendre parler de l’islam. Et même ne plus en parler du tout.

Mais quoi qu’il fasse, quoi qu’il dise, cet homme de 33 ans, vendeur à Voiron (Isère), y est toujours ramené.

Son athéisme intrigue, ou dérange, c’est selon.

Lorsque l’on est issu, comme lui, d’une famille et d’une culture musulmanes, le fait de ne pas croire en Dieu – et, surtout, de le dire – ouvre la voie à une vie d’incompréhensions, de renoncements, de ruptures.

« Je subis un double regard, explique Bahous. Pour les gens, de par mon apparence, mon nom, la couleur de ma peau, je suis de facto musulman. On ne peut pas concevoir que je sois juste Français.

Mais, pour ma famille, je suis le vilain petit canard. Ils me considèrent comme un “francisé” : être athée, c’est trahir ses origines, comme si être musulman était une origine.

Du coup, je me sens obligé de toujours me justifier, sur tous les fronts. »

Bahous avait écrit au Monde en février, en répondant à un appel à témoignages sur les musulmans ayant perdu la foi. Quand nous l’avons à nouveau sollicité, en novembre, rien n’avait changé pour lui : il avait toujours le sentiment de vivre dans cet « étrange entre-deux », où il se sent contraint de préciser sans cesse qu’il n’est « ni islamophobe ni islamophile ».

Le comble pour un athée : « Après les attentats, on m’a demandé de me désolidariser… »

Sa famille, elle, en particulier son frère aîné, n’a jamais accepté son renoncement à l’islam.

Depuis, les deux hommes ne se fréquentent plus. Bahous peut cependant s’estimer chanceux : sa mère, auprès de laquelle il s’est ouvert de ses doutes sur l’existence de Dieu dès l’adolescence, n’approuve pas ce choix mais le tolère.

« Dans certaines familles, annoncer son athéisme peut être encore plus compliqué qu’annoncer son homosexualité »« Dans certaines familles, annoncer son athéisme peut être encore plus compliqué..

Note: I wonder why anyone feel obligated to come out on whether he believes or Not in any God. Religious belief is an individual choice, when adult, same as being atheist: It is none the concern of anyone.

Would this article be behind the burning of “The Tourist” Library in Lebanon (Maktabat al sa2e7)?

The article was published by Father Ibrahim Sarrouj, the library’s curator. Sarrouj has lived in Tripoli all his life and is known to being an encompassing person of the city’s diversity.

The article is about how Aicha, the most educated and beloved wife of Prophet Mohammad (one of 8), described the relationship with her husband who was about 48 years her elder.

Aicha tells of the hypocritical practices of Mohammad that didn’t match was he proselytized… I might translate this article in a separate post:

Aren’t you claiming to be the messenger of God?

Srour article

The country is burning, let’s not worry about a library.

Gianluigi Nuzzi, la bête noire du Vatican

édition abonné

Philippe Ridet in LE MONDE | 
Il est celui par qui les VatiLeaks arrivent. Dans un nouvel ouvrage, le journaliste italien lève le voile sur des abus sexuels commis au sein du Saint-Siège.

Enfant, Gianluigi Nuzzi faisait sonner les cloches de la petite église du village du Frioul où il passait ses vacances.

A l’école élémentaire, à Milan, la ville où il réside toujours, il avait pour institutrice une cousine d’Albino Luciani, cardinal de Venise, qui deviendra pape sous le nom de Jean Paul Ier, le 26 août 1978, avant de s’éteindre subitement 33 jours et six heures de règne plus tard. « Elle nous parlait souvent de lui, de son sourire, de sa simplicité. »

S’il tient tant à ces petits détails, c’est qu’il entend souligner – alors qu’est sorti, le 9 novembre, en Italie et en France, Péché originel (Flammarion), son quatrième livre de révélations sur les dessous du Vatican – qu’il n’a rien contre la religion catholique en général ni contre les papes en particulier.

« On peut être baptisé, avoir la foi et enquêter sur les institutions religieuses, je ne vois pas le problème. »

« Le Vatican est un lieu de secrets qui sont autant d’armes pour contrer l’autorité du pape. » Gianluigi NuzziAprès avoir scruté le fonctionnement suspect de l’Institut pour les œuvres de religion (IOR), autrement dit la « banque du pape » par laquelle ont transité l’argent de la Mafia et les pots-de-vin des hommes politiques (Vatican SA, éd. Hugo et Cie, 2011) ;

Après avoir expertisé la gestion désinvolte des finances de l’Etat du Saint-Siège (Sa Sainteté, scandale au Vatican, éd. Privé, 2012) – un scandale qui aurait mené Benoît XVI à se retirer ; mis au jour une vaste affaire de détournement de fonds destinés aux indigents (Chemin de croix, Flammarion, 2015),

le journaliste révèle cette fois rien moins que des abus sexuels qui se seraient déroulés au pré-séminaire Saint-Pie-X, à l’ombre de la coupole de la basilique Saint-Pierre et à seulement quelques mètres de la résidence Sainte-Marthe, où loge François depuis le début de son pontificat.

Dans la cuisine du bel appartement où il…

The Lone Ranger: Massive strong catalyst for upheaval

Note: You may read part one: City of All Evils https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2017/12/07/on-jerusalem-symbolic-center-of-all-evils/

Trump must demand that Israel conduct a referendum with this question: “Do you agree for Jerusalem to become the Official and Formal Capital of Israel? ” I bet Israel government Won’t Dare run this referendum.

Unilaterally and in a single declaration, Trump smashed 4 decades of a strategy to creating an imaginary enemy between the Sunnis-Shias divide.  The people, in a flash, re-adjusted their direction toward their Existential enemy: Zionism/USA establishment

Israel government wants to still believe the Palestinians are stupid: They allowed for the first time Palestinian youths to enter the Grand Mosque. They assume that the Palestinians will believe that no more constraints on movements will be imposed once Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.

The day Trump declared his statement on Jerusalem, unilaterally, Israel declared it will be build 14,000 more units in Jerusalem for the settlers.

In a single day, Israel forces killed 3 and injured 1,100 Palestinian youths with live bullets. Most of them were hospitalized with concentrated and poisonous gas canisters in 10 Palestinian cities and villages.

A great event: Lebanon Parliament met for deputies to express their opinions on the Jerusalem crisis: this is a message for all States to convene their parliaments and let the representatives of their people to share their positions.

The Palestinians in Lebanon refugee camps are starting to side with Hezbollah strategy: Zionism/USA establishment are the Existential enemies

That’s what is called a strong and major Catalyst: Trump in a single declaration awakened the majority of the “Arabic” people, and in a flash, to their existential enemy: Zionism/USA establishment

Israel mindless traditional apartheid tactics of militarily confronting Palestinian mass civil disobedience is backfiring: After over 1,100 Palestinians injured with live bullets within 24 hours, escalation is quickly transforming into missile launching from Gaza and readiness of Palestinian factions into military confrontation.

Unless Trump retracts on his declaration, events are escalating into an all out war from various sides: Gaza, West bank, Lebanon and most probably Jordan.

This Lone Ranger of Trump will quickly find himself isolated and impotent to weight in in any cease fire or share in any deal in the Middle-East.

Israel is about to pay the heaviest of prices for exiting this clownish Trump and his close family circle.

Although Saudi Kingdom was let into this decision 2 weeks ago, it didn’t measure the enormousness of this blunder. Not only they officially condemned this declaration, they feel totally helpless to mitigate this declaration in the face of the massive uprising in the “Arabic” and Islamic world. Monday, the Arab Summit will meet in Cairo: This time around, Saudi Kingdom will shut up and let the condemnation fuse.

States are coming forth and convoking US ambassadors to lambaste them and decry the outrageous declaration that goes counter to the UN resolutions and world community position.

This Wednesday, the Islamic Summit will meet in Turkey to condemn this infamous declaration. Erdogan has already condemned Israel as a violent terrorist State that occupies other people lands

The head of parliaments will meet on Thursday to send a strong message to Trump of the representatives of the people

The US is warning its citizens Not to exhibit themselves in 12 countries and soon, many of its embassies will be vacated until events cool down.

This Pence, smug Vice-President, is to tour the region to meet Islamic high clerics in Egypt, Palestine… They all declined to meet with him. What the hell is he to tell them anyway.

This Not 1948 or 1967. Events won’t be the blank kinds.

Note: Again, read the previous article City of All Evils https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2017/12/07/on-jerusalem-symbolic-center-of-all-evils/

On Jerusalem: Symbolic Center of All evils

Today, Donald Trump delivered on his “evil promise” to claim Jerusalem as Capital of Israel, regardless of the consistent and historic stance of the UN and all the 195 recognized States. As if the USA is endowed to summarizing the decision of the world community.

Since 1915, US Zionists pressured England to agree on a land for the Jews in Palestine in 1917, as part of entering the war. In 2017, an entire century, US Baptist and Protestant sects pressured Israel to agree on Jerusalem as Capital. (Even Apartheid Israeli settlers hasveenough troubles without this new calamity with no end in sight)

A couple of days ago I stated: Do you believe Trump will actually move US embassy to Jerusalem? What for? Tel Aviv is Not more convenient among all the other world embassies and far more secure?

As of 2013, Israel had been condemned in 45 resolutions by United Nations Human Rights Council since its creation in 2006—the Council had resolved almost more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the world combined.

Historical facts prove that there existed the Province of Judea during the Greek and Roman empires. An Israeli Kingdom never existed but in imaginary stories to match the history of the Land in the Levant. All those accumulated stories were meant to give a semblance of history to the Jewish Bedouins down south in the Naqab

If this Symbol of Jerusalem can appease the soul of all the religious sects swarming in this calamity city, let Trump declare Jerusalem a “neutral zone” to all religious sects, including the Jews, and the religious sites run by the UN as museums.

So the US killed, injured, famished and displaced millions of Syrians, Iraqis and Yemenis for 2 decades in order to make the swallowing of Jerusalem as Capital of Israel as a far lesser Evil? Can Jerusalem from now on be considered the Symbolic Center of All evils?

Threatening with an empty pistol? An Israeli commentator on the reactions of the Palestinians and “Arab” people on the eventual proclamation of Trump on Jerusalem as Capital of Israel. As if the readiness of Hezbollah in Lebanon, the reconquest of Syria and Iraq in this world war to divide their territories were done with empty pistol.

Religious institutions mastered the fact that people need stories (myths) to be attached to abstract concepts for viability and credibility.

When in 1967 Israel entered and occupied East Jerusalem, Golda Meir felt relief when the Palestinians did Not demonstrate much revolt. Actually, East Jerusalem was under the mandate of the treacherous Jordanian Kingdom, and the occupiers carried out another wave of transfer of Palestinians around Jerusalem. Thousands of children and females were forced to vacate their villages and hundreds of young males killed while on the road to unknown destinations.

But dignity of people over-ride all kinds of subjugation and occupation.  This next civil disobedience (intifada) of the Palestinians will Not be crushed easily and will linger longer than the world war on Syria.

Even in 1933, the Palestinian intifada lasted 4 years and England had to dispatch 100,000 soldiers to quell this civil disobedience and exercised the cruelest of torture and violence on the civilian people.

The Symbol of Jerusalem will unite all the Palestinian political factions and the traitors for appeasement and swapping of security intelligence with USA and Israel will be eliminated
