review:
The Mangrove Tree: Planting Trees to Feed Families shares the inspiring story of Dr. Gordon Sato and his work in Eritrea in East Africa. He originally traveled to the arid-coast of Eritrea to help fight famine and found that the indigenous mangrove trees could provide food for herding animals and therefore become a secondary food source for people. He worked closely with villagers in Hargigo how to teach them how to cultivate sustainable mangrove forests to the benefit of the entire community.

The Agenda of Dismemberment of Ethiopia by the Oromo and the Tigrayan Thugs is now reactive! will You Compromise for it?
GETACHEW REDA (Editor Ethio Semay)

Emperor Menlik of Ethiopia the African Hero who defeated the Fascist Italians in Adua

Before I start my commentary, I like to briefly address the rape crime of the Tigrayan-government occurred in Waldiba monastery. http://welkait.com/?p=8544

I hope you heard the news from ESAT that the Tigrayan Fascist gangs are said to be raping the Amhara ethnic nuns who are living inside Waldiba monastery (listen to the video above- though, the back ground music unnecessarily added is nuisance to hear the interview clearly). Sad!

Do we have any answer so far, to the question ‘where Ethiopia is heading under these Tigrayan fascist thugs?!!!!!!!!??  

Hearing this, it is been hard to write anything now. It is shocking news for me. Let me take you slowly to my commentary, since it is shocking news ever heard in our history- even during Grang Ahmed or Italian colonialist era.

Forgive me for not using the Amharic language this time to address my commentary. I wrote this commentary in English to make sure the Oromo youths (who do not read Amharic) understand our arguments that their elites are leading them with fake nationalism to create another round of destruction and civil war in Ethiopia. It is been proven time after time as we speak, the elites will not be affected directly by the conflicts. Because they lived in Europe, USA and in the Arab countries with their families and millions of Oromo youth without sharing the Oromo sufferings in “practice”, but strangely, dampening the flames of ethnic conflict among our people from thousands of Miles away from home is what they are engaged.


So we advice the OLF and TPLF followers (educated or not- all walks of life) need to  understand that their organizations are in the business of ethnic cleansing politics by destroying Ethiopia, which they referred it as the land of “Amhara” and “Orthodox Christianity”.

Since 1991, Both OLF and TPLF attacked our flag referring it as “CherQ!” (OLF created its flag---- and TPLF painted a blue color and communist Star in the middle of our flag) intentionally to degrade the flag highly feared by colonialist.

The next was Orthodox Christianity. Amhara labeled as its protectorate. Tefera Waluwa/Sebhat and others speak of it “Orthodox is the cave for the Amhara, so need to be destroyed”.

The next target was the Amhara and all Ethiopian farmers. Nationalizing lands from the hands of the Ethiopian farmers is a well studied plan by TPLF (OLF) to refuse the Amhara from taking over the lands back to their hands again (Meles told the CIA Cohen).

The next step is the final blow, that is “dismantling Ethiopia” (the land of Amahra and Christians) which is now reactive by proclamation.

The recent proclamation of giving away Addis Abeba to the so called Oromo/Oromia/ by the Tigrayans in power is part of what I called it “Agenda 91”. It was a plan agreed to be controlled by OLF, if not by its surrogate OPDO. The OLF elites told us “Slowly, but “surely” we will control Addis”. And Assefa Jaleta and his likes of OLF vowed “once we control Addis (Finfine), we will open an exit corridor for the Amhara”.

Mohammed Hassen hailed as the theoretician of Oromo secession tells us:-

"The Amhara attitude was nourished by the specter of the disintegration of their empire for, without the resources of Oromia, Ethiopia cannot exist as a viable state.”

(Send to me with other historical documents and private chats referred it as “secret email to Getachew Reda: (from a very close friend of mine a hero and my teacher the late grandeur Aleme Eshete from Rome)

So as you see several evidences above; all these nihilist activities are linked targeting the Amhara.

The Tigray Fascits in power told Ethiopians ‘Addis Abab’belongs to the Oromo

When I heard the news from the Ethno-Fascist media three days ago that the capital city of Ethiopia Addis Abeba to be given to the so called ‘Oromo’ ethnic as their legitimate territory; I was in a state of shock, feeling annoyed, really angry even as I was writing this commentary. 

Perhaps you have read my previous commentaries {The Emergence of the Oromo and Tigre hegemony by Getachew Reda (Editor Ethiopian Semay 1/12/16}
And {The Border Lords of Tigre and Oromo Fascist gangs by Getachew Reda (Editor Ethiopian Semay (August 17/2016}

As I heard the news, the next day, I visited the Tigrayan ethno-fascist propaganda websites to see their reaction to the proclamation that their masters promulgated. Boy, was I not right! As usual, all of them accepted with no objection or rational analysis at all. Even they glamorized as a democratic step. Chilling! Horrifying! Isn’t it?

 Ethnic politics is a herd behavior. TPLF and OLF followers are bound together to accept anything that comes down to them from their herders. Large proportions of this ethnic herd are completely glued to their ethnic doctrine as their religion. They are not willing to examine the mind process injected into them. Therefore, this time particularly the Tigrayan Weyane puppets accepted the giving away of Addis Abeba and other large territories to the so called Oromia/Oromo/ as democratic and legitimate  decision; exactly as they accepted the Eritrean independence with no compromised, or hesitation, even when Meles Zenawi’s told them Eritrean question is a ‘colonial question’.

 They have no argument, but to accept with ululation. Now, some of their leaders (even ‘SEBHAT NEGA’) who fooled them are saying “it was mistakenly characterized as Colonial Question” and are demanding at least one sea ports should be given back to us as it is our legitimate land and right (Gebru, Tsadkan, T/Hailmanot and others..).
  
Now, these puppets are accepting the TPLF proclamation as a legitimate action. So we are dealing with human-herds that are completely ignorant and unaware to what is going on in the back ground of their organization.

So, my argument is now with you people that are not the herds of these ethno- groups. I am talking to you all Ethiopians beside these fools who compromise anything that comes to their table. So the question is do you believe there is an ethnic group called ‘Oromo’ who owns the ¾ of the Ethiopian territory, included the capital city of Ethiopia? If yes, let me hear your argument; if you say ‘no’ let me hear it also.

I am not here to please or displease any one. I am here to protect my beloved country, my people from being destroyed by the CIA and its surrogates (OLF/TPLF…) to alert my people to let them know what is coming towards them. I like to argue here with those who can argue with me rationally without any premature motion. So, let me present my argument regarding this issue of Oromo ownership of Addis or other territories if you are going to compromise for it or not.

Therefore, my argument is there is no such ethnic group or name called ‘Oromo’ who owns these vast lands inside Ethiopian territory. To begin with, who are these so called Oromo or Oromia?! I do not care if they want me to call them Oromo, I will call them, but, not taking lands claiming owned by Oromo and naming it Oromia. That is my point.

The territory they claimed and controlled already by the so called Oromo/Oromia belongs to all Ethiopians. Did you hear me? If they claimed they are owners of those territories, then I have a problem with it! Okay?

Let me ask you all my readers; have you ever read or heard such name before 1974 or during the king or kings/Queens, even before or after Axumite kingdom? No, never heard such/name/country/place(Oromo/Oromia). If so, where did it come from? Who created it? We have to ask rationally- Right?!

If these groups want us to believe such ethnic existed with a country/place/ called ‘Oromia’ we need to see it with historical evidence if such name exist in history? But, they can’t. There is none! Because, it is all made up, fabricated name and fabricated territory by the TPLF and OLF Mafiosi group who are all CIA supported elements.

We all know that, CIA and Italian fascists had been doing their dirty jobs behind the curtain- sometimes openly, sometimes covertly for a long time. We knew how CIA involved with Ethio/Eritrea issue and our Orthodox Christian institutions (we will comeback one day how Aba Paulos was called to Ethiopia after TPLF took over, and who was behind,and who is really Aba Paulos?) .

What is CIA? CIA is a secret spy agency in foreign lands to advance the interest of America. To carry its mission, it does secret-political-infiltration, kidnapping, psychological-warfare, through force and secret plots and even murder leaders of  countries and dismembering stable countries.
Ethiopia is now a target of CIA and the Arabs. Both penetrated through the corridors of their puppets “TPLF/OLF”. This is not new target. It is a chronic. We have heard from Tesfamichael Gorgio how the CIA launched a secret operation by Copeland in 1969 as he was first hand eye witness in the activity recruiting Isayas Afewerk as CIA puppet. The operation named “Seed Planting Progect” was a code name given to the CIA operation. That relation continued all the way to MaTsawa and Afabet operation against the Ethiopian Defense Army.

Remember, The Police spy chief during the king who is an Ethiopian by the name General Iyasu or Daniel (correct me if wrong. interview on Tobia or Menlik magazine (2001), the General told us “Paul Henze was our advisor for 27 months (1969-1972) while Isayas who was recruited by us to spy for Ethiopia in the Jungle was plotting with Richard Copeland in Asmara to break Eritrea to dismember Ethiopia”. Said our General Daniel. Those who are not familiar with the name ‘Paul Henze’; he was the TPLF right hand advisor. He is dead; taken by God’s power few years back.

So we know from two credible individuals (The Eritrean ‘Michael Gorgeo’ who got murdered by EPLF&TPLF coordinated plot in Addis Ababa after TPLF got to power) and our own General testifying that CIA is been involved in Ethiopia for a long time as we speak also.

 So, the present proclamation to give Addis Abeba to the Oromo as “legitimate owner” of the city is part of the process to dismember Ethiopia to create fragmented countries like Somalia and USSR. All this is happening under our moment of unawake by the CIA surrogates namely “OLF and TPLF”.

When TPLF allowed OLF to control those vast lands, TPLF already got for itself vast land for its Tigra Tigringi agenda.

{ “Thus aggrandized in the west and south , TPLF's Tigrai has been blown up from the traditional and official size of 65,000 sq. kms to 102,000 sq. kms "restoring" what the TPLF says was land taken away from Tigrai, on the basis of an entirely unfounded ,..”}  Aleme Eshete (as above)

Simultaneously, to progress its agenda of disintegration Ethiopia, TPLF allowed the 350,000 sq. kms or (now even more) of Ethiopian territory practically covering all of southern Ethiopia, carved-out through the force of arms by the TPLF surrogates to constitute CIA’s future "Republic of Oromia".

We can’t compromise or accept or look at it quietly to this national crime as minor step. This is an open-speedy colonial agenda to rape Ethiopia in a day light! At least we need to speak and leave a record inside the brain of the Ethiopian new generation that they need to confront such national crime and conspiracy by inside and outside enemies. There should be no any political compromise under any circumstances with such crime; not now, not tomorrow, not in the future! No compromise to the dismemberment of Ethiopia.

The proclamation asserted that Addis Abeba belongs to Oromo is historically fake. But when you see the steps that the Tigrayans taking one at time in the last 26 years in its power time, it is a well orchestrated agenda by (CIA behind the plan) leading the final blow by which Ethiopia is intended to be dissolved.

Will you Compromise?

Therefore, will you compromise to this conspiracy? Let us talk. To compromise is to decrease your value, your quality. In this sense, if you compromise Ethiopia under any pressure, you are weakening its dignity, its territory, and pride and history of our people. What it means is, if you give up the nation’s quality that is the end of the story! If you do compromise, it is not the Ethiopia that our ancestors left for us which was sealed and stamped with their blood and bone.

What I saw majority of the Ethiopian elites, particularly the opposition political leaders (most of them) have been lowering the value of the nation like a commodity for sale. In the last 26 years of Tigrayan and Oromo hegemony against Ethiopia sovereignty and dignity; compromising was their word of agenda in the mouth of the opposition. The more the opposition inside or the opposition outside Ethiopia compromise with these thugs; the thugs demanded more and more and more concession.

When we confronted the political leaders, and their followers and their media propagandists to stop compromising; they want to bow for it, because “for of that reason, or for this reason, or for unguaranteed compromise of ‘Give and Take’ negotiation”. By doing so, they discredit their pride; they discredit and dishonor the nation by risking a value in a way it reduces it. Many Ethiopian elites, be it they are in politics or by standards, they all bend or give-in to the pressure.

Ethiopia currently needs not some mediocre politicians who compromise with different sorts of enemies, but leaders and citizens who can resist “pressure”. I have been saying all along do not give in to it! Do not give in to the pressure, don’t compromise. Because, the more you compromise, the more you tolerate. That means you will always allow any harm that comes from enemy as accepted norm. You will start to say things that you never say before, so you can tolerate them. This is exactly what we are hearing in the opposition media like ESAT and other commentators and journalists all over using-name-of place/cities/towns/universities created by Ethiopia’s enemies. Adama/ Finfine/ Haromaya/ Biher… on and on…

They claimed “it is okay, no big deal, we are families, we are all Ethiopian, and we can talk or deal about those names when Weyane is gone…”. This how the opposition give-in to the propaganda pressure from the thuggish group and misguided the youngsters to use them for the rest of their life. The reason they tolerate them, is not because of the reason mentioned above; hey tolerate them, because they are afraid to confront them. What you do not realize is every time we tolerate something, we are compromise our value system.

This is how the opposition leaders, journalists, commentators, Internet, TV and radio media tolerate the crime and conspiracy of OLF/TPLF/EPLF/ONLF design in the name of tolerance (MECHACHAL). When the media and such groups use or tolerate the terms/ vocabularies/ names/flags designed by enemies, it demonstrates they are in agreement with it.

Scholars in such field will tell you, that the more you tolerate something, the greater chance of doing it yourself. That is why we see the Ethiopians opposition conferences seen decorated by Ethiopian flag together with the OLF/EPLF/ONLF flags. Strangely also, the audiences do not seem to be bothered by it- because; they are tuned to tolerate such conspiracy by leaders who are willing to give-in to pressure. By doing so, the opposition brought discredit to our flag, to the nation and to the God of Ethiopia who designed our flag.
 
The God of Ethiopia is calling you all for integrity to the flag and to the nation whom he protected her from various enemies!!!!!!!!! The God of Ethiopia in our religion might teach us to love the sinners, but we do not have to tolerate the sin. No compromise!!

These elites of ours are defusing our concentration, our quality by diluting enemies’ agenda into our business“. My mother used to run a popular Tela Bet business (our traditional beer) that was famous for its “concentration” quality (WEFRAM/GUSH). Many people loved it. They do not need to eat any breakfast/even lunch once they had two or three Menlik/ Wancha/ of it. If she saw the servant adding too much water in to the barrel, she stands up and stops her from adding too much water into it. Her objection is , ‘even though we can make money by adding too much water to the process, we should not do it; even if the process required adding water, once it loses its concentration (strength), the quality that people respect will be gone”. That is what she my mother used to say.

Yes, she is right. When you add water, it does what? It looses its concentration. That is what happens when you compromise; you begin to loose your concentration. By losing your focus/ originality, you become a diluted Ethiopian!!!! You become weaken, you loosen your strength. It is hard to go through a storm when your strength is gone!!!!!! It is hard to fight against the enemy when you are weaken and diluted. It is hard to deal with national crisis when you loose your concentration. All this is because you compromised to the enemy!!!!!!

The weakest groups in the political struggle in our opposition organization regardless they preached you they have a fighting army are those who are willing to compromise “principle” or fight enemy with no policy or principle.. They are defeated groups. Because they give-in their Ethiopian principle due to the pressure from those enemies. Respecting enemies’ flags and their agenda is a defeat!!
We can see where OLF/ONLF and others were few years back and where they are now. Now days,, they are touring with those who claimed Ethiopia groups (unity force)and allowed to brainwash, insult and disrespect Amhara or Ethiopia in-front of Ethiopian audiences. The Ethiopia audiences have now accepted the defeat. They are not in a state of judging what is right or wrong.   

This is because; our society is guided by defeated leaders. Our society is lead by chameleons! They adapt and blended to the enemy’s environment with no shame, thinking they are playing politics/tricks. Every time these political Chameleons are around with different groups of nihilists, you will see them transformed into one of them.

They speak the language of the enemy, they speak and exercise the conspiratorial terms framed by the enemies and they too use them. When you heard this with your own ears; to the extent, you will ask to yourself saying “Are these ours? Or theirs?” These are human chameleons. They acted like them, pleased every environment, they please enemies.

Worst of all, our people gather around them in every conference. When you sit too long with enemies eventually, no matter how much you resist, I guaranty you, you too will preach and talk the same thing the enemy talks and do. Dr.Getachew Begashaw (Doctor 0/zero/) is a typical example for this argument. Remember!? He was telling us OLF never demanded or fought for secession.

At the end I like to say this; - When an Ethiopia forms a binding relationship with none Ethiopian believer, it weakens his/her commitment, weakens character and lowers his/her standards. I do not know about you- as far as me, I can’t afford to loose concentration and allow myself to become a diluted Ethiopian. I have been going too much in my life to be weak right now at this point, so I decided, through hell or high water, I WILL NOT COMPROMISE!!!!!! If you call yourself Ethiopian, you are going to have to bring-up yourself where I am. I am not saying, I am better than anybody else, but, I refused to lower myself by compromising my country that my father served, fought and die.

The agenda and the conspiracy of dismemberment of Ethiopia by TPLF & OLF that we patiently observe for the last 26 years are national crime and sin.  We don’t hate these sinners, but, we don’t have to tolerate their sin. No compromise, through hell or high water!

          Oriental Orthodox in US call for end of Eritrean schism   
(SCOOCH) - To All of the Bishops, Priests, and Faithful of the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo Church – Last year around this time (June 7, 2016), we wrote to you to offer our condolences upon the repose of His Eminence Abune Dioskoros, to wish you a blessed feast of Pentecost, and above all, to call upon the hierarchs of the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo Church to lift the excommunication on His Holiness Abune Antonious I and to restore His Holiness to his Patriarchal Throne.

A year has passed, and we are sad to observe that the painful schism which separates the Eritrean Church from her sisters in Oriental Orthodoxy persists unabated. We are writing to you once again to urge you to refrain from any action which might perpetuate division within the Body of Christ, and also to offer our fervent prayers for the life and health of His Holiness and his restoration to his Apostolic Throne in peace.



With Love in Our Savior Jesus Christ,

          Tour de Hongrie: kolumbiai szakaszsiker, Peák Barna két másodpercre az összetett győzelemtől!   
Izgalmas küzdelmet és végül egy kisebb csoport sprintbefutóját hozta a Tour de Hongrie negyedik szakasza: a kolumbiai Jaramillo szerezte meg az etapgyőzelmet, s ezzel együtt átvette az összetettben a vezetést. A napok óta remeklő Peák Barnabás visszahódította a fehér trikót, az összetettben pedig két másodperc hátránnyal a második helyen áll. A Nemzetközi Kerékpáros Szövetség (UCI) Europe Tour sorozatában szereplő, 2.2-es kategóriájú nemzetközi országúti kerékpárverseny 25 országból érkezett 106 fős mezőnye hat nap alatt 750+1 kilométert tesz meg a július 2-i budapesti befutóig. Fazekas Sándor földművelésügyi miniszter és Dobos László, Karcag polgármestere indította útjára a Tour de Hongrie mezőnyét, amelyre a Magyar Körverseny királyetapja várt. A miskolci célig vezető 177 kilométeres út során egy első kategóriás emelkedő megmászása is szerepelt a programban. A rajtot követő, hosszú, sík egyeneseken egymást érték a szökési kísérletek, amelyek közül végül azt engedte el a mezőny, amelyben szerb, szlovén, ausztrál, német és norvég kerekes tekert. A Bükk lábáig a szökevények három percnyi előnyt gyűjtögettek össze, ami aztán a Miskolcról Bükkszentkeresztre vezető emelkedőn pillanatok alatt elolvadt. Itt nagyjából tizenöt bringás együtt ért fel a csúcsig, ahonnan őrült száguldás vette kezdetét. A boly a lejtőn kicsit „meghízott“, s végül sprintbefutó során döntött a szakaszgyőzelemről. Az első helyezést a kolumbiai Jaramillo szerezte meg, aki az időjóváírásnak köszönhetően átvette a sárga trikót is. „A győzelem fantasztikus érzés, bárhol is rendezik a versenyt – nyilatkozta a sárga trikós Jaramillo. – Nagyon nehéz nap volt, már a sík részeken is nagy volt a küzdelem. A hegy nem volt olyan nehéz, de figyelni kellett rá, hogy jó legyen a tempó, és a csapattársak is fel tudjanak zárkózni. Mindig nehéz megvédeni a sárga trikót, az utolsó szakaszon össze kell szedni minden erőnket, nagyon erős csapatunk van, képesek lehetünk rá.“ A mieink közül Lovassy Krisztián szerepelt a legjobban, aki a kilencedik helyen ért célba, de a bolyban tekert Peák Barnabás is, aki remek teljesítményével megszerezte a legjobb 23 évnél fiatalabbnak járó fehér mezt, az összetett versenyben pedig két másodperccel a második helyen áll. Dicséret illeti a Cube-Csömör montisait is, akik közül Valter Attila és Dina Márton is legjobbját mutatta a hegyen, mindketten az élbollyal érkeztek a miskolci célba. „Nem vagyok tipikus hegyimenő, ezért a szakasz elejétől sokat próbálkoztam. Az emelkedőn ráálltam a saját tempómra, két-három kilomtérrel a hegytető előtt szakadtam csak le, de bíztam benne, hogy a hosszú lejtőn vissza tudok érni. A végén talán kicsit elnéztük az utolsó kilométer jelzését, túl későn kezdtem sprintelni, pedig ebben a napban egy dobogós eredmény is benne lehetett volna. Sajnálom, hogy a siófoki körözésben nem mindenki kapott azonos időt, én is elestem az egyik csapattársammal, és az ott kapott harmincnyolc másodperces hátránnyal számomra elúszott az összetett verseny. Így egy kicsit keserű az öröm számomra“ – nyilatkozta Lovassy Krisztián. „Nagyon jól ment ezen a napon, örülök, hogy végre úgy alakult, ahogyan terveztem. Csapatként is jól együtt tudtunk dolgozni, a hegyen pedig meg tudtuk mutatni magunkat. Nem úgy kezdődött ez a verseny számunkra, ahogy terveztük, de fejben nagyon sokat készültünk erre a szakaszra, és ennek meg is lett az eredménye“ – vélekedett Valter Attila, aki a bükkszentkereszti hegyi hajránál a harmadik helyet szerezte meg. Az összetett második helyére lépő Peák Barnabás pénteki bukása miatt kisebb sérülésekkel indult ezen a napon: „A szakasz elején a rosszabb utakon nagyon nem esett jól, de később már nem figyeltem rá. A hegyen felfelé erősebb tempóra számítottam, ez kedvezett nekem, mert nem tartom olyan jó hegyimenőnek magam. A hegy után két ljubljanás bringás felváltva támadott, hogy a fehér trikót levegyék rólam, de ahogy felduzzadt a boly létszáma, már senkit sem engedtek el. A sprinthajrán együtt jöttünk a szlovénokkal, így sikerült visszaszerezni a fehér trikót. Az egyik szemem sír, a másik nevet. Bánt, hogy nem sikerült megszerezni a sárgát, másrészt viszont így nem engem fog mindenki támadni a zárószakaszon. Még az esélyem is megmaradt, ha esetleg dobogóra tudok jönni a végén, a bónusszal meg tudom szerezni az összetett győzelmet is…“ – nyilatkozta Peák Barna. A miskolciak is kitettek magukért, egész napos kerékpáros fesztivállal várták a Tour de Hongrie befutóját, a Magyar Körverseny díjait Kriza Ákos polgármester adta át.

          The Wrongful Characterisation of the 2% Eritrean Diaspora Tax by Some Media Outlets in the Netherlands   
Eritrean-Swede protesters holding sign that reads, "I pay 2% with joy and pride"



The Wrongful Characterisation of the 2% Eritrean Diaspora Tax by Some Media Outlets in the Netherlands

The first obligation of good journalism is to the truth based on verifiable facts. Of course the journalist may be biased due to own personal believes. But he/she cannot be allowed to get away with being dishonest with the facts. And to demonstrate this obligation, he/she should lay down the verifiable facts for the interlocking public to make its own informed decision about the truth in terms of the context, interpretation, comment, criticism and debate. I concede, to be interested and take part in good faith for the furtherance of the lives people is legitimate. But in the past few months and bizarrely enough, a number of the Dutch media have shown unprecedented interest in reporting about the 2% diaspora tax with abusive and condescending language like never before and all for the wrong and malicious reasons. In spite of the fact that the 2% diaspora tax is a legally and officially implemented Eritrean Government policy, some Dutch outlets have caricatured and depicted it as the long arm of government to intimidate and control community members of the Eritrean diaspora in the
Netherlands.

Invariably these reports have been vehemently enmeshed in painting the 2% tax as something sinister and as an instrument of abuse. In some instances the reporting has been given primetime tv slots and pasted to fill news paper’s white pages. Yes to expose and report crimes in the interest of the public is right. What is not right is a hyped journalism based on concocted specious information sourced from anonymous and faceless individuals although Eritrea does not have invisible enemies. Certainly a reporter can have his/her opinion about the 2% tax either way. What he/she cannot do is to report without checking the specific facts whether intimidation, threats, extortion and harassment did indeed take place. In a society that markets itself as free and liberal, public journalism is considered to be its watchdog. But being a watchdog requires telling the TRUTH grounded on verifiable facts. Instead systematic bias and pathetically vindictive reporting has been the standard. In this regard, one cannot also forget the defamatory report on the hoax sexual abuse alleged to have taken place at the Eritrean Orthodox Church in Rotterdam and the cruel characterisation of our annual cultural festivals as fund raising events for seditious terrorist activities. Those who produce such reports are not fools. They seem to be part of meticulous scheme designed to damage our collective reputation which we cherish and are proud of. This problem is compounded by the disposition of the targeted audience to merely jump over the wagon without rational debate and willingness to go beyond the hyped unfounded assertions.

It is therefore in the context of this falsified vilification, politicised and deliberate misinformation that it is deemed it essential to put the record straight and enlighten the public and the media agencies involved in the dissemination of the uncorroborated and misleading information. The Dutch public has the right to be told the TRUTH AND ONLY THE TRUTH about this issue. Below is a brief explanation of the essence of the 2% tax and this will be followed by what is thought to the best procedure to find the TRUTH for the public to judge for itself.

The 2% Eritrean Diaspora Tax

The 2% diaspora tax is a volitional contribution geared to the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the Eritrean economy which has been totally devastated due the 30 plus years of war of liberation. Its precursor is the active multifaceted involvement of Diaspora Eritreans in the struggle for Eritrean independence. Regardless of geography, Diaspora Eritreans had been acutely involved in the liberation struggle during those very challenging and difficult 30 years. They invested immensely in the delivery of financial, material, diplomatic and supportive activities to the realisation of Eritrea’s independence. Even today as Eritrea strides forward as an independent sovereign state, their resolve and commitment to discharge this patriotic responsibility continues manifestly.

It was this contextual fact that led to the initiative of 2% tax in early 90’s by diaspora Eritreans as the country was emerging from the ashes of the war. This endeavour was a clear testimony of the desire, good will and laudable foresight of diaspora Eritreans to do their part in helping the country eradicate poverty without succumbing to aid dependence which largely has been a failure story. It was relaunched by act of the National Assembly as a voluntary policy instrument through official government proclamation in 1994. The policy stipulates that every Eritrean diaspora citizen is entitled to all rights and privileges that citizenship bestows and at the same time is required to fulfil what citizenship obliges. This is perfectly congruent with the universally accepted policy principle of enjoyment of inalienable rights and the discharge of concomitant obligations that citizenship entails. Let it be crystal clear though that this provision is anchored on the principle of own volition and is required only when a diaspora citizen wants to avail himself/herself of any legal or otherwise administrative services. This is the absolute TRUTH nothing more and nothing less. The axiom ‘’rights and duties are the two sides of the same coin’’ perfectly summarises the essence of the 2% Eritrean diaspora tax.

Purpose and Objective:

As indicated above, the sole purpose and objective of this levy has been and continues to be to help the people of Eritrea in rebuilding their war shattered lives and revive the ruined economy of the country albeit in a small way. For a clear perspective and in essence, the 2% Eritrean diaspora tax can be compared to the European cohesion fund by which the weak links of EURO ZONE countries’ economies are and continue to be financed and bailed out by the richer economies of the union - a net transfer of enabling funds just as the 2% diaspora tax. Another analogous example is the pledged flow of enabling funds of the 1% of gdp of the rich industrial countries to the poor countries notwithstanding the flagging commitment and paucity of success story. Then what makes the 2% Eritrean diaspora tax expended for expanding social services including schools, clinics and roads undesirable? In point of fact it ought to be applauded and replicated in many countries the likes of Eritrea. It is an aberrant act to untruthfully politicize this far-sighted social policy formulated for a nobler cause.

Payment Procedures.

It has been and continues to be that any payment relating to the 2% tax is not only absolutely legal but is also effected at the request and personal initiative and own accord of the individual person involved. NO harassment or coercion on the part of the responsible consular staff is warranted. All payments are transparent legally effected with valid documentation bearing Eritrean government seals and signatures of executing officials. All payments are recorded and payees are provided with valid official receipt as proof of payment. All payments whether paid in cash or electronically are deposited in the Consular official bank account. Clearly this is as transparent as noontime sun shine. Does this deserve the slur and despicable characterisation it has been subjected to? For heaven’s sake why the lie!

The 2% Diaspora tax and the Media in the Netherlands.

Notwithstanding, the Netherlands government positive stance on the legality of the 2% Eritrean diaspora tax, of late some Dutch media outlets seemed to have folded their sleeves to pour quite miss-informative narration in a defamatory fashion. These media outlets have specifically alleged that the Eritrean Consulate General continues to collect monies from diaspora Eritreans through intimidation, threat and criminal extortion tactics. What should be made abundantly clear here and stated loudly is, the demand for veracity is absolute. We simply say prove this with veracious evidence that any staff member of the office has intimidated, threatened or in any way harassed any person to make him/her coercively pay the 2% tax. If this would transpire to be the case, then and only then will the office shoulder the burden of accountability and face the consequences. By all means such a grotesque allegation is a prosecutable crime punishable by the most appropriate stringent statutory legal provisions. Needless to say, a wrongful action such as this, must be brought before the Dutch Prosecution Service so that the culprit faces the full weight of the Dutch criminal justice system. Short of that, there is no remedy for the alleged ‘’ claims of victimization’’. And short of undertaking a task to get to the bottom of this allegation, the Eritrean Consulate General’s reputation remains wrongfully damaged and the Dutch public effectively misinformed. If this egregious allegation continues to be recycled and persists unresolved once and for all, it must be taken to be unfair and discriminatory hidden malicious agenda against the office. The demand for fact-based reporting on which all could be held accountable cannot be emphasised.

The fundamental question here is given the prolific media portrayal of the alleged criminal acts on the part of the Eritrean Consul General, why is it that no one - not a single individual has been subpoenaed and brought to face justice in any of the Netherlands courts? After all it is claimed that Netherland is a democratically governed country where all civil liberties are judiciously guarded and entitlement to legal remedy of the wronged party is the natural course of action. The purported allegations are serious and criminal in nature. But even more serious is the allegation that the Eritrean Consul General in Den Haag is personally and directly involved in this disgraceful act. Inevitably, the unescapable question for a non-gullible mind is ‘’ IS THIS TRUE?’’ If these outlandish allegations of intimidation, threats and extortion are to be reported as truths, then they must pass the acid test questions: ‘when did this happen’, where did this happen? Who is the victim? Did he/she reported to the police because such behaviours are considered acts of crime in this country? What did the police do? Who is the offending official? Only answers to these simple questions would tell the TRUTH.

People in this country have the right to be told the truthfulness of the allegation in full and they expect justice to be served and the perpetrators to have their day in court. In a society that prides itself to be democratic, open and liberal, the self-styled victims should at the very least demand legal redress for being aggrieved. Yet extraordinarily enough court indictment is conspicuously absent while derision and deliberate misrepresentation continues unabated. Is it because what has been alleged never took place and therefore there is no concrete evidence permissible in the court of law? As the learned American prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi argues there can’t be criminal conviction without ‘’corpus delicti, i.e., the body or elements of crime’’ which is precisely the case here. Or is it because this deceptive allegation has no legal legs to stand on but good enough to vilify Eritrea and its government?

Furthermore the second inevitable question is, given this serious allegation, what are the journalistic reporting standards employed by the media agencies that have been involved in reporting this case? Needless to say there are quite a number of ethical, moral and intellectual standards universally accepted in addition to editorial guidelines that news organisations may employ to augment their reporting standards. For the sake of brevity, it would be deemed adequate that the following simple baseline standards would suffice for common understanding of this case here in lieu of the plethora standards that good journalism espouses. For that reason, the media agencies should at least accept the following as underpinning their reporting on the alleged acts of intimidation, threat and harassment committed by the Eritrean Consul General.

• Transparency, reporting without prejudice (no opinion of volitionally
paying interviewees has been include in the reports - a clear case of
disfranchisement).
• Detachment , objectivity and neutrality
• Rejection of information that lacks veracity and credibility
• Rejection of information that fails to meet the requirements of the rules
of evidence to reach a just verdict
• Sanctity of hearing the defendant’s version of the issue

In closing one can say this: although the Dutch media outlets that have been reporting on the 2% Eritrean with commitment to public interest, they have remarkably failed to get it right. Evidently they have been neither objective nor bias free in their methodology. All has been one-sided story. Yet in pursuit of the truth, objective methodology is a critical tenet to appropriately investigate the issue at hand. Sadly this has been missing in almost all the reports. Remarkably there has been not a single case of intimidation, threat or harassment reported to the police in respect of the 2 % tax in spite of the countless innuendos and denigrating narrations recycled by all sorts of traitors, fake experts and pseudo human rights activists. Then, would it be too much to advise these media outlets either to put up or shut up?

For the first series Zeinab travels to all four corners of Africa, interviewing historians, archaeologists, and citizens who paint a vivid picture of their continent's past and how that history informs their present lives. She begins the journey from the origins of humankind, through to the the next stage of our development, then to the ancient civilisations of Africa ending around the 13th century.

This groundbreaking series airs every Saturday and Sunday in July and August of 2017 on BBC World News.

          UNESCO to court controversy with World Heritage picks   

PARIS — The Old City of Hebron in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and a rare collection of futuristic buildings in Eritrea are among sites hoping to gain protected status from UNESCO when it meets in Poland from Sunday.

The meeting of the World Heritage Committee of the UN’s scientific and cultural body in Krakow will also examine concerns about high-rise buildings that threaten the historic centre of Vienna.

7 natural sites, 26 cultural sites and 1 mixed site could be added to the list of more than 1,000 places which have protected status during the July 2-12 meeting.

Inclusion in the coveted list is often a source of national pride and can increase tourist numbers but it can also trigger rows and diplomatic friction.

Israel has already protested at the inclusion among the hopefuls of the Old City of Hebron deep in the West Bank, home to the imposing Tomb of the Patriarchs, the resting place of the Biblical figures Jacob, Isaac and Abraham and one of the most important religious sites to Muslims and Jews alike.

UNESCO enraged Israel in May when its executive board ratified a resolution that identified Israel as “the occupying power” in Jerusalem and called on it to rescind any move changing the city’s “character and status”.

 The Israeli foreign ministry said that adding the Hebron site to the World Heritage list would “ignore the sensitivity of and Jewish connection to the city of Hebron” and would “further the organisation’s politicisation”.

The top UNESCO official for World Heritage, Mechtild Roessler, said she hoped “there will not be a controversy” over the Hebron site.

“I hope it will be a debate about substance. This committee is not about politics,” she said in a briefing before the meeting.

 

Futurism in Africa 

 

The collection of buildings in the Eritrean capital Asmara includes cinemas, petrol stations, banks and shops that are a legacy of the colonisation of the northeast African nation by Italy, which stretched from the end of the 19th century until World War II.

Eritrea’s entry describes the buildings as bearing “the unique pastel colours and rounded edges that marked the rationalist and futurist styles popular in Fascist Italy”.

 Roessler said she was “proud” that Asmara would be up for consideration when the inclusion of new sites are discussed on July 7-9.

“We are happy that entrants come from other parts of the world,” she said, stressing that UNESCO was keen to change the perception of the Asmara site as purely colonial.

“We have worked hard to find another approach,” Roessler said.

The historic centre of Vienna is a well-established UNESCO site but plans to build a 66-metre (216-foot) tower on the edge of the area could see it added to the World Heritage List in Danger.

The tower, which has already been reduced from its original planned height of 73 metres, is part of a project to build a hotel, conference venue and an indoor skating rink.

UNESCO helped to block a previous construction plan in Vienna in 2000. “I thought they had learned their lesson. I was wrong,” Roessler said.

The experts will also debate whether the Kathmandu Valley, devastated by a massive earthquake in 2015, should be added to the list of endangered sites.

Nepalese authorities are opposed to such a listing, fearing it could discourage tourists.

A UNESCO spokesman confirmed that although it is not officially listed for discussion, the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania would be debated.

 

Tanzania’s President John Magufuli said Tuesday he planned to speed up the building of a hydroelectric dam in Selous, one of Africa’s largest game reserves, which was added to the List of World Heritage in Danger in 2014.

Lakini katika hili tukubali tukatae miongoni mwa wanawake wa Afrika bila kujali wanatizamwa na nani ni wazuri na warembo na wanavutia kuliko wengine.

Ifuatayo ni orodha ya nchi 10 zenye wanawake wenye mvuto barani Afrika, mwaka jana Tanzania ilishika nafasi ya 10 mwaka huu imepanda nafasi moja na inashika nafasi ya tisa.

6: Ivory Coast

Mwaka huu namba sita imeshikiliwa na Ivory Coast ambayo mwaka jana haikuwepo kabisa, hivyo imeingia kwenye 10 bora kwa mara ya kwanza, nafasi hiyo mwaka jana ilishikwa na nchi ya Afrika Kusini.

5: Afrika Kusini

Nchi hii imewapa jina warembo wake “Upinde wa Mvua wa Taifa”. mwaka huu imepanda nafasi moja kutoka nafasi ya sita iliyoshika mwaka jana.

Ni miongoni mwa nchi zenye wasichana warembo wa kuvutia katika Bara la Afrika. Miji ya Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria na Durban ndiyo yenye wanawake wenye mvuto. Wanawake wa Afrika Kusini wanang’aa na kuvutia kutokana na ngozi zao nyororor.

Inaelezwa kuwa ustaarabu kwa wanawake ulianzia katika Ethiopia, hivyo inatajwa kuwa ni nchi yenye wanawake wenye mvuto zaidi barani Afrika.

Wengine wanasema matokeo ya mvuto wao yanatokana na mchanganyiko wa watu wa kale wa Yemen na Ethiopia. Wakati mwingine inakuwa ngumu kuwatofautisha kutokana na baadhi yao kufanana sana, maumbile, sura na uzungumzaji.

Hi Kalihari S, please save us from this fake feeling of humanity towards 'millions of poor Ethiopians'. Doing the right and fair things starts at home and your DIA has first to be humanitarian towards his own people, i.e. if he perceives the Eritrean people as his people. Ethiopia has found ways of surviving and thriving economically without the use of the now outdated Eritrean ports. Djibouti has finalized the building of its brand new and modern container terminal, this would make even more smoother trade in combination with the new rail road to Ethiopia.
          Comment on Qatar: Al Jazeera in the Middle by Abraham H.   
Hi Kalihari S., you said "Should Ethiopia follow the Rule of Law and relinquish Badme to Eritrea, it would largely delegitimize PIA/PFDJ abuse of power and allow for normalizations of relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea to be pursued." I don't know why you keep raising this dead issue of Badme; Isayas and co. have in no uncertain terms told us that it was pfdj yesterday, pfdj today, and pfdj tomorrow. They also told us that Eritreans seeking democracy have to go to the moon or mars, and elections in Eritrea cannot take place in three to four decades. Badme is not what gives Isayas a legitimacy to rule; they feel they have a God given right and the sole responsibility to rule Eritreans; according to them and their foolish supporters, Eritrea is doomed without the pfdj.

Hi K. Snake, Why not Lamu? Why don't you try to imagine how the region will be 10 - 20 yrs from now. Don't disregard the ports of Berbera or Lamu (Kenya). The Chinese are building a road from berbera to the ethiopian border. I think that ethiopia has already constructed the road to the border. The Somaliland government is in need of the money and political recognition as well as an independent country, and it is ready to work with ethiopia. In addition the UAE is improving the port facilities, which means that everybody is ready for a long term business. As much as Lamu (Kenya) is concerned, it can serve southern ethiopia. There is nothing fabulous or outfetched about that. The railway line connecting the port of Mombasa to Nairobi was inaugurated about two weeks ago. The aim is to connect to Addis and juba (ss) in the future. Mogadishu is another candidate, when peace comes to the country, and it will serve the somali region of ethiopia. Why do you ignore the above possibilities, which will open the regional market, and the economies of these countries are going to be interconnected. All these are lost to eritrea, because the eritrean regime is not in the position to understand interstate relations and globalization, and it chose isolation. Remember the famous self-reliance. Well, i see that you are among those who say badme first and all the rest later. Everybody has the right to make his own choice. You were saying in your previous comment that Oromo insurgents would attack/sabotage the addis-djibouti railway. You should know that these are insurgents trained, armed and sent by the eritrean regime, as has been shown so many times in other cases in the past. If the regime is going to operate in the same manner in the future, it will have no future at all, and unfortunately, it will be at the expense of the interest of the eritrean people.

Νέα λίστα της CIA παρουσιάζει τα έθνη που "κουβαλούν" το μεγαλύτερο χρέος στις πλάτες τους
Οι κυβερνήσεις δανείζονται για να χρηματοδοτήσουν δαπάνες, όπως η κατασκευή δρόμων, νοσοκομείων και σχολείων, καθώς και για να εκπληρώσουν «υποσχέσεις», όπως η αποπληρωμών τόκων παλαιότερων δανείων.

Οι δείκτες του χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ σε όλο τον κόσμο έχουν αυξηθεί τα τελευταία χρόνια, καθώς οι κυβερνήσεις εκμεταλλεύονται τα ιστορικά χαμηλά επιτόκια προκειμένου να συσσωρεύσουν φθηνό χρέος. Έτσι τα ποσοστά αυτά αρχίσουν να αυξάνονται αναπόφευκτα.
Ο δανεισμός είναι καλός για μια οικονομία που λειτουργεί, αλλά ο ανεξέλεγκτος δανεισμός μπορεί να οδηγήσει μία χώρα σε μια οικονομική ύφεση.
Το επίπεδο του ακαθάριστου δημόσιου χρέους ως ποσοστό του ΑΕΠ μπορεί να υποδεικνύει πόσο μια χώρα μπορεί να εξοφλήσει τα χρέη της χωρίς να χρειαστεί περαιτέρω χρέος. Και όσο χαμηλότερο το ποσοστό του χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ τόσο το καλύτερο.
Η ετήσια διεθνής έκθεση της CIA, μια τεράστια και αρκετά ολοκληρωμένη συλλογή στοιχείων και στατιστικών παγκοσμίως, περιλαμβάνει στοιχεία για τους δείκτες χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ από χώρες όλου του κόσμου.
Στην περίπτωση της Ελλάδας, η χώρα μας εδώ και επτά χρόνια δεν μπορεί να δανειστεί από τις αγορές. Συσσωρεύει νέο χρέος από τα προγράμματα διάσωσης, κυρίως προς χώρες εταίρους, με το οποίο πληρώνει παλαιότερα χρέη και εσωτερικές ανάγκες όπως μισθούς και συντάξεις.

          Wereld voor reizigers weer iets gevaarlijker geworden   

De wereld is voor reizigers de afgelopen twee jaar weer iets gevaarlijker geworden. Dat blijkt uit een vergelijking die de NOS heeft gemaakt tussen de reisadviezen van het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken die nu op de site staan en die van 2015. Vooral landen in Noord- en Midden-Afrika en West-Azië zijn onveilig.

De ontvoering van Derk Bolt en zijn cameraman Eugenio Follender in Colombia illustreerde vorig week nog hoe riskant het in sommige gebieden kan zijn. Zij bevonden zich in 'rood' gebied, een deel van een land waar Buitenlandse Zaken een bezoek sterk afraadt. Een ander voorbeeld is de recente aanval van moslimstrijders op een hotel in Mali, waar ook zes Nederlanders zaten.

Dertien landen zijn volgens Buitenlandse Zaken gevaarlijker dan twee jaar geleden. Daarvan wordt Turkije het vaakst door Nederlanders bezocht. Voor heel Turkije geldt een verhoogd risico op terroristische aanslagen. Bovendien zijn er sinds de mislukte coup van vorig jaar politieke spanningen en verstoorde relaties met Nederland en andere EU-landen.

Thailand en de Filipijnen

Ook een ander populair land voor Nederlandse vakantiegangers, Thailand, is onveiliger geworden. Politieke demonstraties kunnen er tot geweld leiden en door de rouw voor de overleden koning zijn feestelijke activiteiten beperkt. Ook in de Filipijnen kunnen demonstraties tot geweld leiden.

Egypte is onveiliger geworden door geweld, terroristische aanslagen en politieke spanningen. Vakantiegangers zorgen dat ze alert zijn en bereikbaar in crisissituaties. In Egypte, de Filipijnen en Turkije zijn bovendien 'rode gebieden', waar alle reizen sterk afgeraden worden.

Zuid-Amerika en Afrika

Honduras, Colombia en Venezuela zijn onveiliger geworden door gewelddadige criminaliteit, zoals berovingen, overvallen en ontvoeringen. In Venezuela is bovendien de politieke situatie gespannen.

Mozambique en Gabon hebben door politieke onrust een negatiever reisadvies gekregen. Dat geldt ook voor Macedonië, het enige Europese land waar het onveiliger is geworden. Door de politieke crisis zijn er in de hoofdstad Skopje en andere delen van het land dagelijks protesten.

Voor meer landen wordt nu aangeraden om er alleen in noodzakelijke gevallen naartoe te reizen. Dat aantal steeg van 22 in 2015 naar 26 nu. Dit geldt bijvoorbeeld voor het grootste deel van Eritrea, Venezuela, Mali en Pakistan.

Het goede nieuws is dat minder landen zo onveilig zijn dat Buitenlandse Zaken adviseert om er helemaal niet naartoe te gaan. In 2015 gold dit advies nog voor 13 landen; nu nog voor tien landen, waaronder Jemen, Syrië en Afghanistan.

De daling heeft vooral te maken met de ebola-uitbraak in West-Afrika die nu onder controle is. Daardoor vervallen de negatieve reisadviezen voor Sierra Leone, Liberia en Guinee. Nepal werd in 2015 ontraden in verband met de zware aardbeving. Het land is nu weer een stuk veiliger.

De site van het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken wordt gemiddeld 210.000 keer per maand geraadpleegd. Het callcenter van het ministerie krijgt daarnaast zo'n 3000 telefoontjes per dag van Nederlanders met vragen. Steeds vaker zijn het telefoontjes over familieleden die vermist lijken. In het overgrote deel van de gevallen blijkt al snel dat van vermissing geen sprake is, maar is iemand door slechte internetverbindingen een tijdje onbereikbaar.

In ongeveer zeventig gevallen per jaar blijkt er echt iemand verdwenen. Maar ook dat komt bijna altijd weer goed. In totaal moet de consulaire dienst zo'n 1000 keer per jaar echt in actie komen. Het gaat dan om Nederlanders die bijvoorbeeld zijn overvallen, overleden, vermoord, gearresteerd, vermist of in een ziekenhuis zijn opgenomen.


             

Terrorist murder of Hadas Malka (Z'L)

On Friday evening, I noticed a helicopter hovering over the Old City.  This surprised me, seeing as there didn't seem to be much violence with the nearly 200,000 Muslims (including hundreds allowed in from the Gaza Strip, even!) who defiled the Temple Mount earlier in the day.  (This is the Islamic month of Ramadan, in which major roads in Jerusalem are reserved for Muslim-only traffic into the Old City.  It takes me about an hour to go visit my mother via another route, in a trip which normally takes me 20 minutes in the usual, direct route.  I bet you don't hear about this in the media.)

It was only Saturday evening, Motza'ei Shabbat, that I could check the news reports and heard that Hadas Malka had been murdered by three Palestinian terrorists.  She was 23 years old at the time of her death; the Pali murderers were 18.  They used knives and a gun in their attack and were shot to death by other officers on the street.  This happened near Sha'ar Shchem, aka Damascus Gate, on the north wall of the Old City.  Police officers and Border Patrol troops have been attacked (and killed) there before.  In fact, 19-year old Hadar Cohen was murdered in the very same spot just a year ago.  Both Hadar and Hadas were young women serving in the Border Patrol, which is actually an arm of the Israel Police force.

My immediate thoughts were on the futility of it all.  Hadas was buried Saturday night.  She will be pretty much forgotten very quickly, as Hadar was last year.  Young lives snuffed out for nothing at all.  This won't "liberate" any imaginary "Palestine".  Ever.  It's just killing for the sake of killing.  The three young Pali terrorists - taught to hate by the mosque across the street from their homes, by their parents, by Palestinian Authority propaganda, by the UNRWA school system that funds the spreading of hate with Dollars and Euros - have ended their lives for no good purpose, either.  (The mother of one of the murderers proclaimed that she wished that they had killed 50 or 60 times as many Yahud [Jews].  The PA will now grant a lavish stipend to the families of the murderers forever, unless someone puts a stop to that madness, too.)

But then it got worse.  When I looked for international media coverage of this attack in Jerusalem by Palestinian terrorists, I found references mostly in places like the Jewish News, and Israeli media.  The rest of the world didn't seem to notice.  The BBC did have something to say: they tweeted: "Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem". Not an Israeli policewoman murdered, but three Palis killed.  This was as misleading a headline for Fake News as the BBC can contrive.

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/231163
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/20650

After some severe condemnation, including from Donald Trump Jr., the BBC changed its headline.

http://www.timesofisrael.com/donald-trump-jr-calls-out-bbc-over-jerusalem-attack-headline/
https://bbcwatch.org/2017/06/18/bbc-news-changes-headline-deletes-tweet-after-anger-at-portrayal-of-terror-attack-in-jerusalem/

Last night, someone drove a van through a crowd of people in the vicinity of a mosque in London.  Within a short time, there were over 1,000 news reports on this at Google News.  Must be a "Man Bites Dog" story, Muslims hurt by a Jihadi-style ramming attack.  Just now, something else happened in Paris, apparently a car ramming attack.  Nearly 100 news items about this appeared at Google News almost immediately.  When a police officer is attacked in London or a sentry on guard is murdered in Ottowa or a police van is hit in Paris, it's global news immediately.  But when an Israeli officer is murdered in Jerusalem by cowardly Palestinian Jihadis, the media doesn't take notice.  Repeatedly.

With years and years of fawning headlines and stories about Palestinian terrorists and their unfounded claims and propagandistic grievances, it is not surprising that so many uninformed people in so many places - including Lefty but ignorant Jews who should know better - are babbling about Israel "stealing land" and the "brutal occupation" in the safest and most free country in the Middle East (for Arabs!) and "illegal settlements" being an "obstacle to peace in the Middle East" and describing Muslim immigrants and foreign invaders as "indigenous Palestinians" and so much other hogwash.  Perhaps that was the intent of the "journalists" in the first place.  No one seems interested in the truth anymore.  History will never be the same.

In memory of Hadas Malka, HY"D.

Iran’s Ayatollah: ‘All Muslims Are Duty-Bound to Campaign and Carry Out Jihad’ Against Israel

Speaking Monday on the occasion of Eid al Fitr, the Muslim feast marking the end of the month of Ramadan, the Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, Iran’s so-called “Leader of the Islamic Revolution,” declared that all Muslims “are duty bound” to carry out Jihad against Israel—which he referred to as “the Zionist regime.”

“Unity and avoiding division benefits all Muslim countries and through harmony over the issue of Palestine as the foremost problem of the Muslim world, it must be prevented from being diminished or forgotten,” the ayatollah said, according to a statement about the speech posted on the ayatollah's English-language website.   

“Palestine is the foremost issue of the Muslim world, but some Muslim countries act in such a way that is meant to make the issue of Palestine ignored and forgotten,” he said.

“According to Islamic jurisprudence,” said the ayatollah, “once faced with the domination of the enemy over Islamic territory, all Muslims are duty-bound to campaign and carry out jihad in whatever possible form and, therefore, fighting against the Zionist regime is incumbent upon and mandatory for the entire Islamic world.”

The rise of inflexible progressivism

by HERB LONDON

As a young man coming from a left-wing pedigree, I embraced a liberal agenda which included most notably, a belief in Israel as a bastion of socialism and democracy. In the 1950s, a good progressive was a good Zionist. Oh, how the world has changed. Now a progressive has moved 180 degrees to an anti-Zionist position. As one wag put it, the left is now the congenial home of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.

Linda Sarsour, the leader of the Woman's March in Washington and a commencement speaker at the City University of New York, clearly embodies the new spirit on the left. She has praised Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, once anathema to liberals. She has honored Embrased Rasmesh Odeh, a terrorist murderer. She has spoken in favor of Shariah finance. One of the supporters of Ms. Sarsour said, "Nothing is creepier than Zionism."

What is truly remarkable, and to some degree ideologically shattering, is that The New York Times wrote a fawning profile about this woman who challenges all liberal principles. She had the audacity to say that "the vagina of Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be taken away," the same Ayaan who has worked so hard to promote women's rights throughout the Muslim world. Yet the Anti-Defamation League defends Ms. Sarsour. Why do liberals not recognize that the Muslim countries do not give women and people in the LGBT community the same civil rights that Israel does?

For the left, Zionism has promoted Islamophobia - a false critique from the standpoint of Islamists. As a consequence, anti-Semitism is rendered a virtue, as a way to discourage negative sentiment about Islam. Yet even when the evidence of anti-Semitism is incontrovertible, the left contends anti-Semitism is a figment of a hysterical, oversensitive imagination. For the most part, Jews are being systematically written out of the progressive agenda, even though they were responsible for that agenda in the first place. But why quibble?

This new age, already upon us, has sheltered many Jews from the harsh reality of contemporary progressivism. Jews still gravitate to a Democratic Party led by two men (Tom Perez and Keith Ellison) avowedly anti-Zionist. In casual conversation, Jews will say Democrats represent grass-roots movements and people. However, it is important to note the party of the hard left is the government party relying on rules and mandates imposed by Washington D.C. bureaucrats. It no longer represents the blue-collar worker who built the party during the New Deal.

At the Chicago "Dyke March" held recently, Jewish pride flags were banned because Jews "made people feel unsafe" and, after all, the march was pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist. The irony is that the Dyke March preaches inclusion and is billed as "anti-racist, anti-violent, volunteer-led grass-roots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, bisexual and transgender resilience." Yes, the march includes every permutation of homosexuality, but it does not include Jews, presumably these are the people found to be "offensive."

In January 2016, a Shabbat service and reception for Jewish participants at a gay conference in Chicago was disrupted by hundreds of protesters who chanted, "Hey hey, ho ho, pinkwashing has got to go." Pinkwashing is a term to describe efforts by Israel to cover up its treatment of Palestinians by touting its strong record on gay rights. What the incident shows is that even on gay rights Israel will not be given the benefit of the doubt because anti-Zionism trumps homosexual acceptance.

That progressives would find common quarter with Islamists is the shocking part of this ideological evolution. Obviously, secularism has played a role for many Jews. But the Anti-Defamation League's support for the Council on American - Islamic Relations is nothing short of jarring, despite the extent of Jewish secularization.

To have been a progressive and to see how the word and movement have gone through the caldron of ideological change demonstrates the influence of Orwellian logic. Orthodoxy is liberalism, dogma is openness; Shariah is expansive. Who would have thought that the modern Jew would imbibe this logic? But as Norman Podhoretz noted in his splendid book, "Why Are Jews Liberals?" Jews are liberal because liberalism is the new religion of Jews

Angela Merkel’s welcome mat: Refugees roil the German public with an election approaching

Only the hard-hearted would slam the door against a refugee. Their stories are heart-breaking and their courage in seeking a better life in a new home is remarkable. Nevertheless, refugees in uncontrolled number are a headache for everyone. Germany, held up as a nation with a big heart, is learning the cost of Angela Merkel’s big heart. More than a million refugees have arrived since 2015.

Nearly 3 of 4 refugees admitted will struggle to take care of themselves, the German Institute for Employment Research finds. A new survey suggests they’ll probably stay for years on the public dole. The institute finds that fewer than half arriving from Syria, the largest source of refugees, arrive with the equivalent of a high school diploma, and barely 1 in 5 have a college degree. Nearly half a million of them stand in the unemployment line, up by more than a hundred thousand from last year.

The good news is that the number of asylum seekers in Germany dropped by 600,000 in 2016. Aydan Ozoguz, commissioner for immigration, refugees and integration, tells London’s Financial Times that only a quarter to a third of the newcomers will enter the labor market over the next five years, “and for many others we will need up to 10 years [to get them settled].”

Syrians, fleeing an interminable civil war, are followed in number by Afghans, Iraqis, Iranians, Eritreans and Albanians. Together they’re a political headache for Chancellor Merkel, whose poll numbers have declined over the past year leading up to the federal elections in late September. She has had a generous hand in welcoming refugees and immigrants, and most of them are Muslims who find it difficult to adapt and adjust to the religious and political freedom and responsibilities in the West. Pollsters say absorbing the million or more migrants is the top concern of German voters.

The unprecedented number of refugees in 2015 created an enormous backlog of applications for residence — more than 430,000 currently are waiting for clearance now. The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees has cleared more cases than ever before, says Thomas de Maiziere, the German interior minister, considerably more than twice as many in the year before. The number of government clerks has been quadrupled to clear the backlog.

“The [refugee office] is now out of the woods,” he says, “and with wind in its sails. Every month more decisions are made than applications received, so the backlog is being cleared.” More than 50,000 migrants voluntarily returned to their home countries last year, and another 25,000 were deported.

Mrs. Merkel, mindful of Germany’s record in the 20th century, wanted to play Lady Bountiful with her wide-open door, and during the height of the refugee wave, with hundreds drowning in the perilous passage in flimsy boats across the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea, she was widely acclaimed. But the size of the refugee wave surpassed expectations, and public opinion shifted dramatically.

Her open-door policy was blamed for enabling terrorism arriving with the migrants, and when an Islamic migrant from Tunisia drove a truck into a popular Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 and wounding 56 holiday shoppers, the incident galvanized public opinion. It forced a review of national security.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

          Tour de Hongrie: a kolumbiai Jaramillo az összetett győztes, Peák Barna ezüstérmes!   
Az ausztrálok világbajnoka, Scott Sunderland keretbe foglalta a Tour de Hongrie versenyét: a szombathelyi prológ után a budapesti befutót is megnyerte, az összetettben élen álló kolumbiai Jaramillo meg tudta őrizni sárga trikóját, ő lett a Magyar Körverseny történetének első tengerentúli győztese! A magyarok közül Lovassy Krisztián ezúttal is remekül teljesített, a budapesti befutónál ötödik lett, míg Peák Barna megőrizte második helyét az összetett versenyben, s övé lett a legjobb fiatalnak járó fehér trikó is. A Nemzetközi Kerékpáros Szövetség (UCI) Europe Tour sorozatában szereplő, 2.2-es kategóriájú nemzetközi országúti kerékpárverseny 25 országból érkezett 106 fős mezőnye hat nap alatt 750+1 kilométert tett meg. Már csak 86 kerékpáros állt rajthoz vasárnap Jászberényben, ahol fesztivál hangulatban indult útjára a karaván. Az addig eltelt öt nap alatt húsz versenyző adta fel vagy esett ki a küzdelemből. Szombaton a német Timo Schafer, a szlovén Ziga Jerman és Hartmann József adta fel a versenyt, az orosz Leonyid Krasznov, a szlovákiai Zimány Krisztián és Foltán Adrián pedig időlimit túllépése miatt nem folytathatta. Az elmúlt napokhoz hasonlóan ezúttal is rengeteg szökési kísérlettel indult a nap, ám a sárga trikós Jaramillót védő amerikai csapat egyiket sem engedte messzire. A nap egyetlen hegyi hajráját a szlovák Tybor „vitte el“, így az eritreai Ghebreigzabhier megőrizte a piros trikót. A mezőny kilencven kilométernyi száguldás után egyben érkezett meg Budapestre, ahol Lovassy Krisztián megnyert egy gyorsasági részhajrát is. A Hősök terét érintő városligeti körpályán öt kört teljesített a mezőny, és sprintbefutóval ért véget a viadal. A legjobban az ausztrál IsoWhey együttese vezette fel a hajrát a világbajnok Scott Sunderlandnek, aki a szombathelyi prológ után megnyerte a nemzetközi viadal utolsó szakaszát is, sikerével a gyorsasági pontverseny legjobbjának járó zöld mezt is megszerezte. „A legjobbamat adtam tegnap is, hogy megtartsam a sárga trikót, sajnos ez nem sikerült, pedig a csapattársaim minden segítséget megadtak, hogy jól szerepeljek. De ma bebizonyosodott, hogy nagyon erős csapatunk van, nagyon büszke vagyok erre a győzelemre is“ – vélekedett a budapesti szakaszgyőztes, Scott Sunderland. A sprintben a magyar bajnoki trikót viselő Lovassy Krisztián helyezkedett a legjobban, az ötödik helyet szerezte meg, de mint utóbb elmondta, sokat kivett belőle, hogy a szakasz során a részhajráknál kellett védenie csapattársát, így nem a legjobb erőben ért a városligeti sprintre. Szerepléséért nagy tapsot kapott a körpályát ellepő szurkolóseregtől. A sprintbefutó érdemben nem befolyásolta az összetett élmezőnyének állását, az amerikai UHC kolumbiai menője, Daniel Jaramillo – aki egyébként hatodik lett a budapesti sprinten is – megőrizte a sárga trikót. „Nagyon nehéz feladat volt a mai, főleg a csapatom számára, de a társaim az egész nap folyamán meg tudtak védeni. Kicsit más volt a Tour de Hongrie, mint amihez Amerikában hozzászoktunk, nagyon gyors volt, a nagy szél is szokatlan volt, de nagyon jó kis verseny volt. A győzelem nemcsak az én győzelmem, hanem az egész csapaté“ – mondta a Magyar Körverseny első tengerentúli győztese, a kolumbiai Jaramillo. A sprintbefutón a legjobbak között volt (14. lett) a Kontent-DKSI 22 esztendős versenyzője, Peák Barnabás is, aki megtartotta második helyét az összetett versenyben, és az erős mezőnyben a legjobb 23 évnél fiatalabbnak járó fehér mez is az övé lett. „A mai szakaszon a nagycsapatok elvégezték helyettünk a munka javát. Nem gondoltam volna, hogy két másodpercnyire leszek a sárga trikótól, de ezt azért ezen a szakaszon nehéz lett volna megszerezni. Másodiknak lenni egy ilyen nagy versenyen nagy dolog, jó érzés volt felállni a hét minden napján valamiért a dobogóért, mindenképpen elégedett vagyok!“ – így Peák Barnabás, a Tour de Hongrie összetett versenyének második helyezettje, a viadal fehér trikósa. A csapatversenyben a dél-afrikai Dimension Data for Qhubeka bizonyult a legjobbnak, a hazai együttesek közül a Bátorfi-Trek Team zárt a legjobb pozícióban. A 38. Tour de Hongrie emlékezetes befutóval ért véget, a több mint 400 fős karaván hat nap alatt körbejárta az országot, Szombathelyről indulva, Keszthelyt (ezen a napon a szélsőséges időjárás miatt nem jutott el Zalaegerszegre), Velencét, Siófokot, Paksot, Ceglédet, Karcagot, Miskolcot és Jászberényt is útba ejtve jutott el Budapestig. „Fantasztikusan sűrű hét volt, kaptunk szó szerint hideget-meleget, volt vihar miatt félbeszakított szakasz, volt sporttörténeti befutó Miskolcon szép magyar sikerekkel, óriási hét volt, fantasztikus hangulattal, sok nehézséggel, de szerencsére a szervező csapat nagyszerűen működött, minden nehézségel megbirkóztunk. Ennyi embert kerékpárversenyen ritkán lehet látni, és ezt láttuk végig, amerre mentünk az országban, az emberek kint álltak az út mentén. Nehéz hét volt, de örülünk, hogy megcsináltuk!“ – nyilatkozta Eisenkrammer Károly, a Tour de Hongrie főszervezője. EREDMÉNYEK 5. szakasz, Jászberény–Budapest (112 km): 1.

review:
Absolutely incredible story - I was stunned to find out at the end that it was fictional! I honestly thought this was a true story. Man.

I read an 'uncorrected proof' because that just happened to be the copy I found (in a secondhand bookstore). So I don't know if things were changed or what, but I LOVED the start - how in the first chapter they are in Ethiopia, and Alem's father is being called a traitor because his wife is Eritrean... then the second chapter is almost word for word exactly the same - the only difference being now they are in Eritrea, and his mother is being called a traitor because her husband is Ethiopian. It's a really strong start that paints so vividly the conflict between the two places. And I am gonna admit now that before this book... I knew jack-all about that!

After that, Alem and his father go on a "holiday" to England... where Alem's father leaves him in hopes that his boy will be able to gain refugee status, and safety. The fact that he only spent one night in the detention centre before finding a foster home seemed a tad farfetched, but apart from that... amazing story. So sad too :( But oh, Alem was a wonderful character to read about! I really loved him :)

So với Trung Quốc, thế giới ít quan tâm đến VN và do đó tình hình chính trị, xã hội, “thành tích” nhân quyền ở VN ra sao cũng chả mấy người biết, nếu họ không vì một lý do gì đó chú ý đến VN. Tôi đã từng nói chuyện với nhiều người Na Uy, người châu Âu cho tới những khu vực khác trên thế giới, không có mấy người hiểu rõ về hệ thống chính trị, tình hình chính trị xã hội ở VN.

Có một vài người bạn từng nghe tôi nói nhiều về VN nhưng vẫn không hình dung hết, đến khi tôi gửi một loạt bài về tình hình VN trên trang Human Rights Watch, RFS (Reporters Without Borders), cả cái video của đài truyền hình quốc tế Aljazeera về sự hà khắc, bóp nghẹt mọi quyền tự do ngôn luận của người dân và cách hành xử đối với những blogger dám lên tiếng của nhà cầm quyền…họ mới thực sự sửng sốt.

Lâu thật lâu, như hôm nay, truyền thông quốc tế đồng loạt đưa tin về phiên tòa ô nhục kết án blogger Mẹ Nấm, tức Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh 10 năm tù, chỉ vì cái tội dám lên tiếng đấu tranh ôn hòa trước những sự bất công, phi lý, những vấn đề nhức nhối của xã hội như nạn công an lạm dụng quyền lực, bạo hành người dân đến chết khi đang trong lúc bị tạm giam để điều tra, hay thảm họa môi trường Formosa…

Trước đó mấy ngày, báo chí các nước cũng đưa tin rất nhiều về trường hợp một nhà bất đồng chính kiến, cựu tù nhân lương tâm, Giáo sư Phạm Minh Hoàng đã bị nhà nước cộng sản tước quốc tịch VN và trục xuất sang Pháp sống đời lưu vong…Vào những dịp như vậy, ai quan tâm đến VN thì có thể hiểu được cái chế độ do đảng cộng sản đang nắm quyền ở VN là một chế độ tàn bạo, rằng ở VN không có đất sống cho những người dám lên tiếng, những nhà hoạt động dân sự.

Nhưng cho dù có đọc được những tin đó, người nước ngoài, nhất là công dân của các nước tự do, dân chủ, văn minh, tiến bộ cũng không sao tưởng tượng được rằng có những quốc gia kết án những người đấu tranh ôn hòa, chỉ với ngòi bút hay bàn phím, đến những 10, 12, 16 năm tù. Có những quốc gia dùng công dân của mình, nhất là những tù nhân lương tâm, tù nhân chính trị như những con bài để mặc cả, thương lượng với thế giới và khi đạt được thỏa thuận thì trục xuất công dân sang nước khác, chỉ với bộ quần áo trên người, như những tội phạm nguy hiểm, trong khi họ hoàn toàn không gây nguy hại gì đến an ninh xã hội!

Người dân của các nước tự do, dân chủ, văn minh, tiến bộ có thể lờ mờ hình dung rằng điều kiện giam giữ tù nhân chính trị, tù nhân lương tâm ở VN nó tồi tệ như các quốc gia độc tài, kém văn minh khác, nhưng chắc không thể tưởng tượng được những trò hèn hạ, bẩn tưởi mà nhà cầm quyền sử dụng để mong làm nhục chí khí, lung lạc tinh thần tù nhân, hay đơn giản chỉ để thỏa mãn cái tâm lý muốn trả thù.

Hèn hạ, bẩn tưởi đến mức tù nhân chính trị ung thư sắp chết vẫn không được trả về để chết bên người thân hay chết mà gia đình vẫn không được mang xác về vì “tù chính trị không phải là người” (như tù nhân chính trị Nguyễn Văn Trại, trại giam Xuân Lộc, Đồng Nai). Thực tế là các trại giam luôn luôn giữ thi hài các tù nhân chính trị lại và an táng trong phạm vi trại giam, không khác nào “chết mà vẫn còn bị giam”.

Người tù có cha chết, mẹ chết vẫn không được phép về chịu tang, bị giam trong những điều kiện cố ý tệ hại để hủy hoại sức khỏe, ví dụ như “người tù thế kỷ” Nguyễn Hữu Cầu, cựu đại úy Chủ Lực Quân VNCH, bị giam cả thảy 37 năm đến khi tim yếu, tai gần như điếc, một mắt bị mù lòa không còn thị lực, sức khỏe cạn kiệt mới được thả ra. Hoặc bị giam trong phòng giam hoàn toàn tối để làm hỏng thị lực dần dần như trường hợp kỹ sư-tù nhân lương tâm Trần Huỳnh Duy Thức, không cho mặc đồ lót hoặc sử dụng băng vệ sinh khi có kinh như trường hợp blogger Mẹ Nấm v.v…

Những chi tiết đó thế giới văn minh không thể hiểu được. Chỉ có người dân ở những nước cùng chế độ độc tài, man rợ là hiểu nhau. Tôi nói chuyện với một nhà văn, nhà xuất bản sách, blogger người Bangladesh đang tỵ nạn chính trị ở Na Uy hơn một năm nay. Bangladesh qua lời kể của anh hiện lên trước mắt tôi không khác gì xã hội VN dù Bangladesh có khá hơn ở một vài khía cạnh, ví dụ có đa đảng, chế độ Thủ tướng Nghị viện, báo chí, TV, nhà xuất bản hoàn toàn là của tư nhân… Nhưng “thành tích” vi phạm nhân quyền của chính phủ Bangladesh cũng rất tồi tệ, và cũng như VN, các blogger, nhà báo, nhà văn ở Bangladesh cũng luôn luôn chịu đủ thứ sự rủi ro, nguy hiểm, từ việc bị chính quyền bắt giam dài hạn nếu dám công khai chỉ trích các chính sách của nhà nước, cho tới việc bị hành hung, giết chết bởi những nhóm Hồi giáo cực đoan nếu dám có những tư tưởng tự do, không phù hợp với đạo Hồi.

Trong những năm gần đây, thế giới đã bàng hoàng khi đọc/nghe thấy hàng loạt vụ tấn công bạo lực chống lại các blogger, nhà nghiên cứu, các nhà hoạt động vì quyền lợi người đồng tính, người nước ngoài và các thành viên của các nhóm tôn giáo thiểu số ở Bangladesh. Họ đã bị tấn công đến chết bằng dao, rựa...ngay ở chỗ đông người. Ví dụ như vụ giết blogger, nhà văn và nhà hoạt động Avijit Roy ở Bangladesh vào ngày 27 tháng 2 năm 2015 hoặc vụ tấn công vào blogger Ananta Bijoy Das vào tháng 5 năm 2015 và nhiều vụ khác nữa. Khi những blogger, nhà báo bị những nhóm Hồi giáo cực đoan đe dọa, họ từng tìm đến cảnh sát nhưng cảnh sát không hề làm gì để ngăn chặn, ngoài việc khuyên họ nên…trốn sang nước khác! Sau nhiều lần bị đe dọa và cuối cùng bị tấn công suýt chết, vị blogger mà tôi nói chuyện đành phải chọn con đường ra đi, sống đời lưu vong.

Còn ở VN? Kể từ khi đảng cộng sản lên nắm quyền ở miền Bắc năm 1945 và độc quyền lãnh đạo trên cả từ năm 1975, có bao nhiêu thế hệ tù nhân chính trị, tù nhân lương tâm phải trải qua những bản án phi nhân, những năm tháng tù đày như địa ngục trần gian? Từ vụ án Nhân văn-Giai phẩm, vụ án “xét lại chống đảng” trước năm 1975, hàng loạt dân quân cán chính VNCH phải chịu tù đày sau 30.4.1975 cho tới những lớp tù nhân lương tâm sau này-dân oan, người bất đồng chính kiến, các nhà hoạt động dân sự, hoạt động tôn giáo, blogger, nhà báo, luật sư, kỹ sư…

Không chỉ giam cầm. Nếu như các blogger, nhà báo ở Bangladesh bị những nhóm Hồi giáo cực đoan tấn công giết chết ngay trước mắt thiên hạ, thì ở VN, công an đội lốt côn đồ cũng ngang nhiên tấn công tàn bạo những người dám lên tiếng, kể cả đạp cho ngã xe, rất nguy hiểm cho tính mạng.

Trong nhiều năm qua cái tên VN luôn luôn đứng vào hàng ngũ những quốc gia độc tài, nơi mọi quyền tự do dân chủ tối thiểu của con người đều bị bóp nghẹt, nơi có “thành tích” tồi tệ về nhân quyền, tham nhũng, và vô số sự tệ hại khác. Trong những bảng xếp hạng về “democracy index”, “human rights violations by country ranking”, “countries with worst human rights records”, “Countries Top the List of 'Enemies of the Internet” or “List of "Enemies of the Internet" v.v… VN luôn luôn nằm cạnh những cái tên như Bắc Hàn, Cu Ba, Syria, Egypt, Gambia, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Venezuela, China…Rộng ra thêm nữa, có Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nga, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan…

Dưới chế độ cộng sản, có bao giờ chúng ta thấy được những thông tin tốt đẹp hay VN lọt vào những danh sách đáng tự hào?

Nhưng, có vẻ như đa số người Việt không quan tâm đến những danh sách xếp hạng hay cái nhìn của thế giới đối với VN. Những cái đó xa xôi quá. Ngay những chuyện bất công, phi lý, tồi tệ xảy ra hàng ngày, nhiều người còn không hay biết. Chẳng hạn, có bao nhiêu người biết đến blogger Mẹ Nấm, những việc chị đã làm, phiên tòa xử chị vô lý, tàn bạo và phi nhân ra sao. Có bao nhiêu người đọc và quan tâm đến cái tin về phiên tòa xét xử blogger Mẹ Nấm vốn chỉ được đưa tin ít ỏi và không trung thực, dựa theo cái nhìn của nhà cầm quyền? Trong khi đó, cùng một thời điểm, vụ án tình-tiền, hoa hậu-đại gia Phương Nga-Cao Toàn Mỹ thì được báo chí đua nhau cập nhật tin tức liên tục, khai thác đủ kiểu, và người dân thì náo nức theo dõi.

Đặt bên cạnh sự lẻ loi của vụ án xét xử một người yêu nước, một người mẹ đơn thân đang nuôi hai con nhỏ với bản án từ 8-10 năm. vì đòi những quyền lợi chung cho tất cả mọi người, chứ không phải quyền lợi của riêng mình, mới thấy gì?

Thứ nhất, một chế độ độc tài tàn bạo có khả năng biến báo chí thành bạc nhược, biến người dân thành thờ ơ, vô cảm, không quan tâm gì đến những chuyện gì đang xảy ra trên đất nước mình, cũng không quan tâm dân mình đang sống như thế nào so với các nước khác, khoảng cách về sự tiến bộ, văn minh giữa nước mình với các nước nó xa vời vợi như thế nào.

Thứ hai, toàn bộ quá trình xét xử, kết án blogger Mẹ Nấm bộc lộ tính chất phi lý, tàn ác, man rợ như hầu hết những bản án dành cho những ai dám lên tiếng ở nước này từ trước đến nay.Và không có hy vọng gì vào sự tự thay đổi, vào lương tri của nhà nước cộng sản, cộng sản chỉ có thể thay thế, xóa sổ chứ không có khả năng thay đổi và càng không thể cùng “hợp tác”, “sống chung”.

Nhưng trước khi có thể đi đến sự sụp đổ thì chế độ này cũng đã kịp giam cầm, tiêu diệt bao nhiêu con người dũng cảm và tạo nên một xã hội với tâm lý thờ ơ như “ở trọ” trên quê hương. Và đó mới là điều đáng phải lo nghĩ.

          Οι χώρες με το μεγαλύτερο χρέος του κόσμου. Σε ποια θέση είναι η Ελλάδα   

Νέα λίστα της CIA παρουσιάζει τα έθνη που "κουβαλούν" το μεγαλύτερο χρέος στις πλάτες τους.


Οι κυβερνήσεις δανείζονται για να χρηματοδοτήσουν δαπάνες, όπως η κατασκευή δρόμων, νοσοκομείων και σχολείων, καθώς και για να εκπληρώσουν «υποσχέσεις», όπως η αποπληρωμών τόκων παλαιότερων δανείων.

Οι δείκτες του χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ σε όλο τον κόσμο έχουν αυξηθεί τα τελευταία χρόνια, καθώς οι κυβερνήσεις εκμεταλλεύονται τα ιστορικά χαμηλά επιτόκια προκειμένου να συσσωρεύσουν φθηνό χρέος. Έτσι τα ποσοστά αυτά αρχίσουν να αυξάνονται αναπόφευκτα.
Ο δανεισμός είναι καλός για μια οικονομία που λειτουργεί, αλλά ο ανεξέλεγκτος δανεισμός μπορεί να οδηγήσει μία χώρα σε μια οικονομική ύφεση.
Το επίπεδο του ακαθάριστου δημόσιου χρέους ως ποσοστό του ΑΕΠ μπορεί να υποδεικνύει πόσο μια χώρα μπορεί να εξοφλήσει τα χρέη της χωρίς να χρειαστεί περαιτέρω χρέος. Και όσο χαμηλότερο το ποσοστό του χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ τόσο το καλύτερο.
Η ετήσια διεθνής έκθεση της CIA, μια τεράστια και αρκετά ολοκληρωμένη συλλογή στοιχείων και στατιστικών παγκοσμίως, περιλαμβάνει στοιχεία για τους δείκτες χρέους προς το ΑΕΠ από χώρες όλου του κόσμου.
Στην περίπτωση της Ελλάδας, η χώρα μας εδώ και επτά χρόνια δεν μπορεί να δανειστεί από τις αγορές. Συσσωρεύει νέο χρέος από τα προγράμματα διάσωσης, κυρίως προς χώρες εταίρους, με το οποίο πληρώνει παλαιότερα χρέη και εσωτερικές ανάγκες όπως μισθούς και συντάξεις.

          World Half Record On The Line In Copenhagen?   

action from Copenhagen Half

Organisers of IAAF gold label race Copenhagen Half Marathon are targeting a new world record at their event on 17 September. They have already confirmed last year's winner James Mwangi Wangari who claimed the course record in 2016 with a time of 59:07 and 2015 winner Bedan Karoki Muchiri, who recently improved his personal best to 59.10. The pair will be chasing Eritrean Zersenay Tadese's world record of 58:23, which has stood for seven years.

          Europa steuert jetzt auf neue Flüchtlingskrise zu   
Mangelnde Unterstützung in der Flüchtlingskrise hat Italiens Innenminister Marco Minniti der EU am Sonntag vorgeworfen. Ursache für die scharfe Kritik an der Brüsseler Hochbürokratie ist zunehmende Nervosität in Italien wegen der steigenden Zahl illegaler Migranten auf Sizilien, wo allein in der vergangenen Woche mehr als 13.000 Menschen gelandet waren. Sie kommen aus Nigeria, Eritrea, Pakistan, dem Irak und Mali - und sie ziehen jetzt nordwärts.
          Drowning mothers   

As refugees try to cross the Mediterranean Sea - women are more likely to drown.

Women protest against the living conditions at a camp in Athens, Greece, in February 2017. Panayotis Tzamaros/ABACAPRESS.COM/PA Images. All rights reserved.

Few images of the current refugee crisis were more horrific than that of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, the Syrian boy who lay dead on a Turkish beach in September 2015, a victim of drowning trying to reach Europe. But Aylan had a mother, and she drowned too. We have no photo of her, no story. We heard of Aylan and his distraught father. But the drowned mother was hardly newsworthy.

As late as June of 2015, men comprised nearly three-quarters of the world’s migration flow, according to UNICEF. This has been replaced by a major spike in the numbers of women and children across the Mediterranean and up through Europe.

More migration, unfortunately, has meant more deaths from people trying to cross borders. Although far more men than women undertake the perilous journey through the North African desert or across the Mediterranean in rubber rafts, it is the women who have a greater risk of dying along the way – most of them at sea.

For every five men who drown in the rubber rafts trying to cross the Mediterranean, six women also die.

Women’s increased risk of death is not only true for the Mediterranean journey. The same lethal pattern can be seen along other borders. A major quantitative study of “border-crossing deaths” by Sharon Pickering and Brandy Cochrane focuses on precisely “where, how and why women die crossing borders”. Using data from 2012, well before the current crisis, Pickering and Cochrane surveyed deaths among female migrants in three areas of the world: in the Mediterranean on the way to the EU, in the Mexican desert on the way to the United States, and in the South Pacific for migrants sailing from Indonesia toward Australia.

The most obvious risk for refugees crossing the seas to the EU or Australia is, of course, drowning. The International Organisation for Migration estimates that 75% of all refugees and migrants who die trying to cross borders drown in the Mediterranean Sea. This route is now the deadliest in the world, and is even more deadly for women than for men. For every five men who drown in the rubber rafts trying to cross the Mediterranean, six women also die. And for the voyage between Indonesia and Australia the ratio is eight women for every five men. Women crossing the Pacific are 26% more likely to drown than men.

On the ships, women and children are often placed below deck by their male family members in order to protect them during the crossing. But this location can quickly become a trap, often with tragic consequences. Rescue teams coming to the aid of capsized ships often find women and children who have suffocated from toxic exhaust fumes or drowned by incoming waters. Women often have poorer swimming skills compared to men, and their attempts to save their children often also lead to their higher risk of drowning. When rescuers discover drowned women, they often find them with heavier clothing that pulled them under the water.

With increasing numbers of women fleeing violence, instability, and poverty in the Middle East and elsewhere, Pickering and Cochrane conclude that the number of women who die trying to cross legal borders will probably increase. Most in danger are those women (and men) who come from countries with limited or no possibility to obtain entry visas, who will be compelled to take the more dangerous sea or desert routes. More men, women and children will die.

The anonymous bodies

Why take a female perspective on the tragic deaths in the Mediterranean? Of course, the drowning of a small child like Aylan Kurdi is as tragic as the death of any woman or young man. But a gender perspective provides a window for showing the relationship between migrants’ deaths and restrictive border controls. Unlike those migrants who die in the desert on their way through Mexico and who can often be identified, the identities of the drowned refugees often remain unknown.

Yet drowning at sea leaves traces, and researchers focusing on “border-crossing deaths” go to great lengths to count the dead and collect information about the drowned persons’ lives and backgrounds. These efforts are important in order to tell a full story of how and why particular persons risked their lives. Research on border deaths, especially border deaths of women, is a way of avoiding the mere counting of drowned bodies. Instead of allowing the dead to slip anonymously out to sea, a more detailed picture of who dies and why helps confirm for us that many of these deaths could have been avoided.

Researching border-crossing deaths is hardly routine. It is research into tragedies that are predictable and unnecessary. These deaths are predictable because restrictive border controls do not stop refugees and migrants. Borders themselves do not eliminate the refugees’ need to migrate; they only force them to take routes that are riskier, deadlier. Denied entry at the border point, they will take the rubber raft across the sea, and capsize.

These deaths are predictable because restrictive border controls do not stop refugees and migrants.

We now have a wealth of information about border-crossing deaths from a variety of sources, including narratives from survivors, rescue crews and from migrant aid organisations. Pickering and Cochrane's study shows that while women refugees and migrants have an increased risk of dying at sea, in the desert, or at the geographical border-crossings, male refugees and migrants have an increased risk of dying after arrival – in detention, under arrest, or in connection with deportation.

The mothers and their children

When women die, it is often in an attempt to save the children whom they have brought with them. The more children, the more risk of death. Evidence shows that refugee families often travel with more than one child on the boats, and that these children are placed together with the women.

The women who take the perilous refugee journey across the Mediterranean or the Pacific, or through the North African or Mexican desert, are not only mothers, they may be pregnant as well. Among a group of Nigerian women whom I studied, most had trudged hundreds of miles through the North African desert to arrive at a port. Several of them had been pregnant during their journey, and many had assisted other women with birth. Most had seen both women and babies die during birth.

Recently, a woman who had just been rescued by the Italian coastguard gave birth on the deck of a rescue ship. Among women from Eritrea and Somalia who ended up in Malta, we have several reports showing a high incidence of pregnancy. At one Red Cross reception centre in Spain, Maja Lund Rasmussen, a researcher, found that 27 out of the 34 female residents were either pregnant or mothers with their own children. 'Monique' from Conakry in Guinea, was pregnant when she sailed from the Moroccan coast to the Spanish border town of Melilla. As she explained, "I travelled to Melilla by boat. It was not a big boat – just a little one (she shows that it is inflated with air, ed.). We were 19 on board. I didn’t want to go. I cried. I was afraid of the sea. You don’t want to go when you see the sea. So I prayed, ‘God, let me survive’. But many people died. Many. It’s very dangerous. It's very, very dangerous at sea. I had never crossed the sea before – it was the first time".

There is little doubt that restrictive border controls have caused women to make life-threatening decisions about when and how to give birth.

Critics of immigration often comment on pregnant migrants when calling for measures against “anchor babies”. These critics view women as using their pregnancy, arriving with babies in their arms in order to obtain legal residence or avoid deportation.

We need more systematic knowledge about the relationship between pregnancy and migration. However, there is little doubt that restrictive border controls have caused women to make life-threatening decisions about when and how to give birth. This is partly because the women may be spending months in a transit area in Libya, Morocco, or other embarkation points before undertaking their journey. This shows the degree of desperation when women must take the chance, setting out on a life-threatening journey at sea in the final weeks of their pregnancy.

Survivors from ships that have capsized when sailing between Indonesia and Australia tell of newborn babies they have seen floating in the water, right next to their drowned mothers. Medical experts say that a woman can go into labour as a response to a stressful event, such as a boat capsizing or trying to swim to shore. The Nigerian women whom I interviewed tell of women who give birth prematurely on the way through the Sahara. The babies tell their own story of the conditions for women who set out to see or through the desert, fleeing violence and poverty, in desperate search of a better life. This is why we need the full story of Aylan Kurdi’s mother.

          Tendopoli a fuoco, pompieri picchiati dai migranti   
Hanno impegnato l'intera giornata di ieri le operazioni di sbarco e accoglienza per l'arrivo nel porto di Reggio Calabria della nave «Diciotti» con a bordo 413 migranti.Il gruppo è composto da varie nazionalità: Africa centrale, Senegal, Costa d'Avorio, Guinea Conaky, Bangladesh, Mali, Gambia, Camerun, Nigeria, Biafra, Sudan, Congo, Burkina Faso, Benin, Niger, Sierra Leone, Togo, Liberia, Eritrea, Ghana, Guinea Bisseaou e Libia. Le attività di primo soccorso e assistenza, coordinate dalla prefettura, sono state prestate dal personale delle forze dell'ordine, della sanità, dell'associazionismo e del volontariato. Al momento dello sbarco i migranti vengono sottoposti alle prime cure sanitarie da parte del personale medico presente sul posto e assistiti dalle Associazioni presenti.Per l'occasione è stata allestita, a cura della Regione Calabria, la tenda per il trattamento igienico sanitario dei migranti con patologie cutanee. I migranti saranno trasferiti secondo il «Piano di riparto» predisposto dal Ministero dell'Interno: un piano - quello del ministro dell'Interno - che prevede un'accoglienza mirata, ma la situazione è ormai fuori controllo.E sempre a Reggio Calabria, nella notte, un incendio ha devastato latendopoli di San Feridinando, dove nel periodo estivo vivono alcune centinaia di migranti. Secondo la ricostruzione una persona sarebbe rimasta lievemente ferita. Il rogo ha distrutto baracche e tende della protezione civile. Sul posto sono intervenuti i vigili del fuoco e i carabinieri, che hanno aperto un'indagine per ricostruire l'origine dell' incendio.Davvero inquietante un particolare della vicenda: i vigili del fuoco sono stati infatti aggrediti dai migranti . E anche su questo fronte i carabinieri hanno aperto un'inchiesta. Dopo qualche minuto di attività di spegnimento dal bordo della strada, i vigili del fuoco hanno fatto ingresso all'interno dell'accampamento dove però sono stati circondati e aggrediti da decine di immigrati, infuriati perché, a loro dire, i vigili del fuoco sarebbero intervenuti in ritardo. I pompieri sono riusciti appena in tempo a risalire a bordo del mezzo, che è stato fatto oggetti di lancio di sassi, che hanno sfondato i finestrini laterali e danneggiato il parabrezza. Solo ieri mattina, sotto la scorta della polizia e dei carabinieri, i vigili del fuoco hanno potuto spegnere gli ultimi focolai.

You’ve gone through the break-up, and you realize that there’s noting left to do but to move on. But, your heart has been broken and you don’t know how or where to start ”moving on”. This spell will help you to focus on moving in a more positive direction, one step at a time. It will begin to open up opportunities to build yourself up and strengthen your inner being in such a way that you actually begin to feel empowered by what you’ve been through!

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .
