News canonizzazzione: Francesco dà il via al Sinodo per la Regione Panamazzonica

 Cache   
Il miracolo che porterà la nostra Beata alla canonizzazione è avvenuto nella città di Sinop, un comune del Brasile nello Stato del Mato Grosso, parte della mesoregione del Norte Mato-Grossense e della microregione di Sinop.
Possiamo dire che Madre Vannini è una santa di questa terra dell'Amazzonia! E per Dioincidenza sarà proclamata Santa durante questo importante Sinodo!


"Stamani la processione dalla Basilica Vaticana all’Aula del Sinodo, dove si tengono i lavori. Il Papa si sofferma in San Pietro per un momento di raccoglimento e preghiera con i partecipanti all’assise, salutando in particolare i rappresentanti dei popoli indigeni, che in processione portano, oltre ai loro canti, anche una canoa ricolma di strumenti e oggetti simbolo di storia e tradizione. Lungo il percorso in Piazza San Pietro avvolgono e accompagnano il Pontefice con il loro calore e con i loro cartelli sull’ecologia integrale ma anche in ricordo di chi ha perso la vita in difesa delle terre amazzoniche e non solo. Nel piazzale antistante l’Aula Paolo VI Francesco riserva ancora un saluto ai presenti e insieme si trasferiscono nell’Aula del Sinodo per una preghiera iniziale."

PAPST FRANZISKUS

ANGELUS

Petersplatz
Sonntag, 6. Oktober 2019

[Multimedia]


 

Liebe Brüder und Schwestern, guten Tag!

Der heutige Abschnitt aus dem Evangelium (vgl. Lk 17,5-10) unterbreitet das Thema des Glaubens, das durch die Bitte der Jünger eingeführt wurde: »Stärke unseren Glauben« (V. 5). Ein schönes Gebet, dass wir im Laufe des Tages viel beten sollten: »Herr, stärke meinen Glauben!« Jesus antwortet mit zwei Bildern: dem des Senfkorns und dem des willigen Knechts. »Wenn ihr Glauben hättet wie ein Senfkorn, würdet ihr zu diesem Maulbeerbaum sagen: Entwurzle dich und verpflanz dich ins Meer! und er würde euch gehorchen« (V. 6). Der Maulbeerbaum ist ein robuster Baum, gut in der Erde verwurzelt und widerstandsfähig gegen die Winde. Jesus will dadurch verständlich machen, dass der Glaube, auch wenn er klein ist, die Kraft haben kann, selbst einen Maulbeerbaum zu entwurzeln. Und er könnte ihn sogar ins Meer verpflanzen, was noch unwahrscheinlicher ist: doch für diejenigen, die Glauben haben, ist nichts unmöglich, weil sie sich nicht auf ihre eigene Kraft verlassen, sondern auf Gott, der alles vermag.

Der Glaube, der mit dem Senfkorn vergleichbar ist, ist ein Glaube, der nicht stolz und selbstbewusst daherkommt; er täuscht nicht vor, der Glaube eines großen Gläubigen zu sein und dabei bisweilen auch eine schlechte Figur abgibt! Es ist ein Glaube, der in seiner Demut ein großes Bedürfnis nach Gott verspürt und sich in seiner Kleinheit mit vollem Vertrauen ihm hingibt. Es ist der Glaube, der uns dazu befähigt, hoffnungsvoll auf die verschiedenen Wechselfälle des Lebens zu schauen, der uns hilft, auch die Niederlagen, die Leiden hinzunehmen, im Bewusstsein, dass das Böse niemals das letzte Wort hat und haben wird.

Wie können wir erkennen, ob wir wirklich Glauben haben, das heißt: ob unser Glaube, obwohl er so klein ist, echt, rein, aufrichtig ist? Jesus erklärt es uns, indem er vorgibt, was das Maß des Glaubens ist: der Dienst. Und er tut das mit einem Gleichnis, das auf den ersten Blick etwas beunruhigend ist, weil es die Gestalt eines herrischen und gleichgültigen Herrn präsentiert. Aber gerade diese Art und Weise, wie der Herr sich verhält, lässt den wahren Mittelpunkt des Gleichnisses zum Vorschein kommen, nämlich die willige Haltung des Knechts. Jesus will sagen, dass der gläubige Mensch Gott gegenüber diese Haltung einnimmt: er stellt sich vollkommen dessen Willen anheim, ohne Kalkül oder Ansprüche.

Diese Haltung Gott gegenüber spiegelt sich auch im Verhalten der Gemeinschaft wider: sie spiegelt sich in der Freude wider, einander zu dienen, indem man bereits darin seinen Lohn findet und nicht in der Anerkennung und den Profiten, die sich daraus ergeben können. Das ist es, was Jesus am Ende dieser Geschichte lehrt: »So soll es auch bei euch sein: Wenn ihr alles getan habt, was euch befohlen wurde, sollt ihr sagen: Wir sind unnütze Knechte; wir haben nur unsere Schuldigkeit getan« (V. 10).

Unnütze Knechte, das heißt, ohne den Anspruch zu erheben, Dank zu empfangen, ohne Forderungen zu stellen. »Wir sind unnütze Knechte« ist ein Ausdruck der Demut, der Verfügbarkeit, der der Kirche so gut tut und die richtige Haltung in Erinnerung ruft, um in ihr zu arbeiten: der demütige Dienst, für den Jesus uns das Beispiel gegeben hat, als er die Füße der Jünger wusch (vgl. Joh 13,3-17).

Möge die Jungfrau Maria, Frau des Glaubens, uns helfen, diesen Weg zu beschreiten. Wir wenden uns an sie am Vorabend des Festtages der Muttergottes vom Rosenkranz in Gemeinschaft mit den Gläubigen, die in Pompeji zum traditionellen Bittgebet zusammengekommen sind.


Nach dem Angelusgebet sagte der Papst:

Liebe Brüder und Schwestern!

Die Eucharistiefeier, mit der wir die Sonderversammlung der Bischofssynode für die panamazonische Region eröffnet haben, ist gerade im Petersdom zu Ende gegangen. Drei Wochen lang werden die Synodenväter, die sich um den Nachfolger Petri scharen, über die Mission der Kirche in Amazonien, über die Evangelisierung und über die Förderung einer integralen Ökologie nachdenken. Ich bitte euch, dieses wichtige kirchliche Ereignis mit eurem Gebet zu begleiten, damit es in brüderlicher Gemeinschaft und Fügsamkeit dem Heiligen Geist gegenüber gelebt werde, der immer die Wege für das Zeugnis des Evangeliums aufzeigt.

Ich danke euch allen, den Pilgern, die ihr in großer Zahl aus Italien und vielen Teilen der Welt gekommen seid. Ich grüße die Gläubigen aus Heidelberg und aus Rozlazino, in Polen; die Studenten aus Dillingen, ebenfalls Deutschland, und die des »Istituto Sant’Alfonso« aus Bella Vista, Argentinien.

Mein Gruß geht an die Gruppe aus Fara Vicentino und Zugliano, die Familien aus Alta Val Tidone, die Pilger aus den Castelli Romani, die für den Frieden marschiert sind, und jene aus Camisano Vicentino, die über die Via Francigena zu einer Initiative der Solidarität gekommen sind.

Ich wünsche euch allen einen schönen Sonntag. Und bitte vergesst nicht, für mich zu beten. Gesegnete Mahlzeit und auf Wiedersehen!

Slow-Motion Whiplash Brian October 7th, 2019 at 1:15 PM
[Bryan Fuller]

10/6/2019 – Michigan 10, Iowa 3 – 4-1, 2-1 Big Ten

The story of the last 20 years of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry is Jim Tressel gradually transitioning Ohio State from what was then accurately termed "pro style offense" to a spread option system that's been at or near the bleeding edge for 15 years. He inherited Steve Bellisari and Craig Krenzel, neither of whom will be confused with a gazelle any time soon, and transitioned to Troy Smith in a bumpy 2004 season that saw the Buckeyes reach The Game with a 3-4 Big Ten record.

One-loss, #7 Michigan entered a heavy favorite. Four hours later a nuclear bomb had gone off. Smith threw for 241 yards on 23 attempts. He ran for 145 on 18. Ohio State got 52 yards on 14 carries from fullback Brandon Joe; everything else was Smith gaining 9.4 yards per whatever he did.

OSU did not look back. Since November 20th, 2004, Ohio State has had zero sharp turns with their approach. They've pushed things around based on whether their QB was Braxton Miller or Cardale Jones; they've constantly iterated to keep up with the Joneses. At almost no point have they tried to do something completely different.

When they found themselves forced into something pretty different a year ago when it turned out Dwayne Haskins would rather eat a turtle than run a zone read, things were rickety to the tune of a 49-20 blowout at Purdue where the Buckeyes tried a WR screen on fourth and goal from the two.

Doing different things is hard. Especially all at once.

---------------------------------------

By contrast, Michigan has had no set offensive identity for longer than a few years. The tail end of the Carr era was almost nothing but outside zone from under center because the Broncos made it cool. Michigan imported Rich Rodriguez, then fired him after two years of Denard Robinson. Brady Hoke put Robinson under center a lot, because he is a neanderthal, and then recruited nothing but battleship pocket passers (and air). Michigan imported an Alabama OC who was no better than the guy putting Robinson under center; Hoke got fired.

In comes Jim Harbaugh, who had a fascinating period manballing it up from every formation that had ever been invented, lost Jedd Fisch, hired Pep Hamilton, threw Tim Drevno overboard two years too late, hired Ed Warinner, turned to Warinner after the Notre Dame debacle, developed a nice arc read package, ditched Hamilton, and hired Josh Gattis.

In the opener Gattis showed an arc read with an option attached that looked like the natural evolution of what Michigan had been running last year, and then for whatever reason all of that got stuffed in a garbage disposal. Michigan cited an oblique injury to the quarterback. Since then they've done various things, with nothing that you can actually call a base offense. Giving total control to Josh Gattis appears to have resulted in Michigan tossing some adequate babies out with the bathwater, and now the babies are not very adequate.

The number of whiplash moments here is approaching double digits, all while Ohio State calmly whittles a stick into a cruise missile. Michigan has repeatedly thrown over their offensive approach midseason.

Michigan doesn't need to go to Columbus for a counter-example, either: after getting ripped by Ohio State last year Don Brown has moved to a bunch of zone coverages. This is a pretty radical makeover itself, but since it's run by the same guy the terminology hasn't changed; the playbook is still the playbook, but different things are coming out of it. You can see where the defense is heading as it adapts to its personnel. Since that personnel has a decided lack of NFL defensive tackles it's been bumpy.

There's no comparison between the two units. Even after getting imploded by Wisconsin, Michigan sits 2nd in SP+ defense. In reality they're probably a few notches down from that—SP+ is still including a healthy preseason component. The offense is 66th, down over 40 spots from last year after returning nine starters. And there, too, optimistic preseason projections are propping that number up.

It's time to start moving certain pieces around, if only to experiment. Piece number one is quarterback, where it's time to see if any of the offseason Dylan McCaffrey hype was warranted.

Maybe that'll be enough for Michigan to dig in at some spot that—while vastly disappointing relative to preseason expectations—allows Michigan to entrench and see a way forward. Maybe not. Either way Michigan has another hard choice to make: continue on with an unproven coordinator off to a confusing, awful start, or throw it all away and try to build another sand castle before Ohio State can stomp it flat.

[After THE JUMP: defense though!]

Known Friends And Trusted Agents Of The Week

you're the man now, dog

-2535ac8789d1b4991f1c37dee-a502-44d9#1 Kwity Paye/Aidan Hutchinson. 2.5 TFLs each; Paye's were all sacks; Hutchinson had one sack. Hutchison also added a forced fumble on the first play from scrimmage—nice when that happens to the other guys—and a PBU when he deflected a pass at the LOS. The relative proficiency of both guys on the interior allowed Michigan to put their rush package on the field on anything resembling a passing down and survive.

#2 Khaleke Hudson. 11 tackles, a QB hurry, a TFL, and suffered a hold so blindingly obvious that it drew a flag. Missed one tackle on a crossing route; otherwise excellent.  

#3 Cam McGrone/Jordan Glasgow. McGrone had some off moments but was also instrumental in Michigan's constant Stanley-shattering pressure; he's getting a +3 in UFR for a sack on which he took off from the linebacker level on the snap, dusted the RB, and finished. Glasgow converted a run blitz to a similar sack.

Honorable mention: Nico Collins was most of Michigan's touchdown drive, and he also got targeted two more times. Dax Hill had an impressive fourth-down PBU. Josh Metellus got over the top for an INT; so did Lavert Hill.

Honorable mention: Nordin gets iced at the end of the first half. Patterson throws a pick trying to get over a dropping defender on hi/low read. Patterson… well, just read the next section.

OFFENSE

McCaffrey time. Shea Patterson had one 51-yard bomb to Nico Collins and 25 other attempts on which Michigan advanced 96 yards, 3.8 yards an attempt. He threw a very bad interception and tried to throw another one. Both of his sacks were on him; he sat in the pocket forever on the first and then ran himself into pressure on the second.

I like Joel Klatt but when going over the game I about passed out when he lamented how no one was open on the first sack.

image

Literally everyone is open! This coverage is a giant Iowa bust on which a corner playing outside leverage expects safety help and that safety help is moving up on a crossing route, which is also open. It really seems like this is the whole point of the play, as Bell takes his route vertical for a few steps to draw the safety's attention before breaking to the crossing route.

I should note that after attempting to match this up with the rush, the point at which Patterson needs to decide to throw is this:

image

Since both LBs are moving left and the safety has committed these guys are in fact all open but I didn't want to be accused of cherry picking a moment too late. We saw McCaffrey make a nice anticipation throw to McKeon against Wisconsin, it's not unreasonable to expect Patterson to decide any of these guys are open. Also the wide open post needs no anticipation.

Various other incidents where Patterson sat in the pocket and couldn't find anyone didn't get the downfield cam treatment but I imagine many of them were like this, because this has been a consistent issue any time Patterson goes up against a zone defense.

There is no reason to expect this to improve, so I'm on Team McCaffrey as soon as he returns from injury.

48847871973_58b5610cc2_k

rarely does it come easy [Fuller]

A brief bit of sun. Michigan's other drive—the one that ended in the missed field goal—was frustrating even when things were working: it interspersed one two-yard run with completions to Collins, DPJ, and Black on two hitches that wobbled their way out there but were still easily completed and an out on which Tru Wilson picked up a CB blitz and Patterson threw it where that came from.

It's impossible to see that bit and not think about why it couldn't be this easy all the time. After the deep shot to Collins Iowa cornerbacks were playing in the parking lot or showing more aggressive coverage and bailing just before the snap. Michigan threw one hitch at that until the fourth quarter, that the Sainristil third down conversion.

To be fair to Gattis, Michigan did try to high-low Iowa on a couple of different instances only for Patterson to throw an interception on one. And the wobble on those hitches may have been oblique-induced. They were not confidence inspiring.

48848411483_02b14f7a18_k

no sale [Fuller]

Legitimate complaint. One complaint about the WR corps that I do think was legitimate was a distinct lack of Grant Perry route artisanship on red-zone corner routes, which were continually well-covered because Michigan's double moves on them were weak or nonexistent. Perry liked the weak first move followed by a more convincing second one inside, and then he'd break out. Iowa's a lot better than Hawaii and Geno Stone in particular was amazing in this game; still would like to see some guys bite on your moves.

Wildcat. I'm of two minds about the wildcat snap: yes, it was sort of a six-v-six situation on which the OL didn't win. (I say sort of because the overhang linebacker flew into the box on the snap.) On the other, Michigan took a passing down and waved a giant flag that they were going to run. Pass protection gets worse once the opposition doesn't have to worry about the run—Michigan had 15 pass protection positives before their first negative against Wisconsin, and from there things went to hell—and no doubt that dynamic exists for obvious runs.

Meanwhile, Michigan's other trick play was supposed to be an end-around pass from DPJ to Erick All. All fell over, Iowa didn't bite anyway, and DPJ seemingly had not been coached to get rid of the ball if his passing option was not there.

Ground woes continue. More whiplash: after a week where Michigan ran power, outside zone, and inside zone with meh success and seemingly quite a bit of confusion Michigan flipped to approximately one run play: inside zone. There was some split zone in there and a couple of arc plays, but after some early success Iowa got locked in on the one thing Michigan was doing and turned it into a struggle.

It is depressing that Michigan's gone from a team that can throw a lot of stuff at your face and run it all pretty well to one that does literally nothing well enough to be a base play. That goes double given the returning starters Michigan has. A lot of this has to do with the suddenly non-functional QB run game—that one arc read outside of four-minute-drill time was so open it was painful—but I don't know what to do with a team-wide regression so comprehensive. Players are supposed to get better as they get older.

I don't even know man. Michigan threw one bubble in this game, when they put Eubanks outside of DPJ. Iowa rolled their CB up to the LOS and slid their LB corps heavily to the field, with an OLB, who is a real OLB since it's Iowa, head up on Eubanks. The presnap look was a giant blinking DO NOT THROW A BUBBLE.

image

Bubble. I'm going to walk into the ocean now.

Michigan can't throw a screen of any variety. No TE screens, no WR screens, no RB screens. No tunnels, no bubbles, no flash screens. Speed in space is nonexistent.

DEFENSE

Dax Hill: a man. Hill got another chunk of playing time and flashed eye-popping ability. His fourth and two PBU was a drag route on which he lined up with outside leverage, got a step behind, and then made up the distance in a flash. Almost casually. I look forward to fully actualized Dax Hill.

48848787516_8ceaf8e586_k

at least there's someone missing a tackle [Fuller]

Mesh: a plan. Michigan got hit with a few different crossing routes in this game, but in almost all cases this was because someone messed up. McGrone had one; Hudson missed a tackle; I think Thomas was late recognizing his responsibility on the one to Iowa's little scatback. Like last week's not-quite switch-em-up that seemed like Dax Hill busting a trap coverage. Michigan is still getting used to a much more diverse defensive approach but it's working pretty well; see the column section above.

Drop-out blitzes: a canal. Michigan's TFL issues were always a product of who they played. Army is Army. MTSU and Rutgers have offenses designed around the fact they can't block anyone. Wisconsin is Wisconsin, and they only had to throw 15 passes. It wasn't likely that a Don Brown defense was going to be bad at getting to the QB.

But even the most optimistic view wouldn't have projected eight sacks and an intentional grounding that was functionally a ninth. Michigan obliterated Iowa's pass protection. They were extremely eager to throw their rush package on the field—second and seven+ was good enough—and in the second half they threw in a ton of threatened rushes and late drops that sent a ton of guys through untouched. McGrone zipped through the interior of the line when Uche dropped out multiple times; Hudson got a free run off the edge; etc.

Panama. I like Panama because on a continent where way too many countries have national anthems titled "The National Anthem," the Panamanian national anthem is "The Hymn Of The Isthmus."

48848952792_6b941ff583_k

how Stanley didn't fumble in this game is unknown [Fuller]

McGrone, up and down. As mentioned above, Cam McGrone had some negative blips here. He was set to jam a crossing route from Smith-Marsette and airballed on him; there was a chunk iso run where he got thwacked by the fullback and didn't funnel to help.

But the dude has the Devin Bush thing where he can come from the linebacker level with no warning and get in on the quarterback in a flash. Iowa was constantly turning him free on blitzes up the middle in part because of that—there are guys who seem dangerous and guys who don't based on their positioning. McGrone was also excellent at not tipping when he was coming.

Handsy. A pretty frustrating game for both offenses in the PI department. Michigan had an open-drive TD that didn't quite come off because a DB who was beaten clean by Black yanked him from behind without a call. For Michigan's part it seemed like they dodged a couple of penalties: an official made the uncatchable signal after Ambry Thomas mugged Oliver Martin on a fade, and a Lavert Hill PBU saw some serious jersey tugging both ways.

On the latter play an official had tossed his hat to indicate the WR had stepped out of bounds. If you step out of bounds and are ineligible to touch the ball first, can you be interfered with? It seems like the answer should be no. But I don't know.

Michigan did get hit with an inevitable flag on a badly underthrown go route.

48848423387_7cb851d69f_k

[Fuller]

All right-thinking persons believe these flags are an affront to momentum and should not be called. Michigan was the beneficiary of one against Army, which felt dirty but was badly needed at the time. It is unfair to penalize someone when they are running in a straight line and the WR decides he needs to go through your body.

SPECIAL TEAMS

What are you doi—ok. DPJ fielded a punt at the four, which was bad. Then he DPJed his way out to the 40, which was good, and then he fumbled, which was bad, and then Michigan jumped on it, so that was okay again. Michigan got some fluck in this game to offset earlier bad luck.

Golden godhood: nah. Aussie drifter Michael Sleep-Dalton only averaged 38 yards a kick and didn't pin Michigan inside the 10. (Punting stats should record inside the 10, not inside the 20.) He did have a very frustrating line drive he hammered to the left after rolling right; DPJ had no shot at fielding it and it ended up being 56 yards with no return. Sleep-Dalton put a couple in the sideline as compensation.

By contrast Will Hart was his usual self: boom everything, live with the consequences. Iowa picked up 54 yards on four punt returns with a long of 17—ie, everything that got fielded came back a long way, and six of the eight punts either got returned or went into the endzone. So despite a 46 yard average, Michigan only netted 34 yards a punt once touchbacks and returns are accounted for.

These are the costs of Michigan's punting approach.

What was with the pop-ups? Michigan popped up their first two kickoffs. Smith-Marsette caught the first one on the dead run but had fair-caught it. The second one he took out to the 50. The opening kickoff of the second half went into the endzone, and you have to wonder why Michigan wasn't doing that from the beginning.

Nordin: very large leg. Consecutive 58-yarders were easily long enough; the second one got pushed wide after a bad snap.

MISCELLANEOUS

End of half, again. The end of half bugaboo struck again. Michigan was rightfully turtling until Kirk Ferentz called a somewhat unusual timeout on third and one; Haskins ripped off Michigan's longest run of the day—18 yards—and Michigan decided to try to get something with 20 seconds left and one timeout. Out of the timeout they threw a hitch, and DPJ got tackled in bounds. Michigan let the clock roll, threw another short pass, and then called timeout with one second left.

After the hitch the announcers clucked about how DPJ had to get out of bounds, something that would have been much easier if he'd been running an out. Why was he getting a throw at the numbers, five yards from the sideline?

homecoming without lots of homecoming [Bryan Fuller]

No halftime show. Homecoming didn't have the alumni band performance. No Temptation, no War Chant. I don't even know what we're doing here if we're not preserving even extremely easy-to-preserve traditions. Let's become the mauve and taupe.

Best and Worst:

Meh: The Offense

I'm going to be a contrarian here and say the offense legitimately looked like it was making solid strides against what is a very good (if unspectacular) defense. Yes, Jim Harbaugh is probably trolling a bit when he says he thinks the offense is hitting its stride, as 10 points in any game is rarely a sign your team is firing on all cylinders. But I re-watched this game and there were a number of times where a play here, a play there turns what was a nail-biter into a blowout and we aren't having as many existential conversations about the state of the program. I know Iowa players said they didn't make adjustments to the pass defense, and I guess if your philosophy is "zone them hard and grab anyone who tries to get away", then in broad strokes that's probably correct. But Michigan still ground down the field at a decent clip (4.1 ypc after you excise sacks, kneel-downs, and whatever happened during that DPJ play), and perhaps most importantly stayed ahead of the sticks consistently (Iowa only picked up 4 TFLs, and two of those came on sacks and a third was the aforementioned DPJ play). Iowa's one of the worst teams in the country in generating tackles behind the line, but as we've seen past performance does not remotely portend future results. And heck, Patterson actually kept the ball on a couple of plays and picked up a couple of first downs in the process.

Also podcast, Ace's recap:

This was ¡El Assico! 2: This Time in Blue. Neither team cracked 270 yards of total offense. Of the game's 26 real drives, there were:

  • 15 punts
  • four interceptions
  • a lost fumble
  • two made field goals
  • two missed field goals
  • a single, solitary touchdown
  • Iowa's eight-play, 12-yard drive to end the game.

The defense, obviously, emerged as the game's heroes.

ELSEWHERE

Go Iowa Awesome:

THE BAD: ROAD NATE STANLEY

This is Nate Stanley’s worst performance on the road against a ranked conference opponent since…well…the last time Nate Stanley was on the road against a ranked conference opponent. In 2018 it was against Penn State, when he completed a pathetic 37% of his passes for 205 yards, threw for two interceptions and was sacked three times. In 2017 it was at Wisconsin where he completed eight (8!) passes for 41 yards, one interception and was sacked four times. His QBR against Wisconsin was 6.0. Six, point, zero.

Comically, this was statistically his best performance of those three games, as he threw for 260 yards and completed a more impressive 54.8% of his passes. Unfortunately, there were also the three interceptions and, oh yeah, the EIGHT sacks. Some of those weren’t his fault (which we’ll talk about), others, like the one where he had about 5 seconds to throw the ball away as he was running towards the sideline and decided instead to take the sack, were. Stanley turtles on the road in tough conference games and his decision-making is about a full two seconds slower. That was the case when he first started and unfortunately, that’s the case in his final year.

HSR:

A win is a win. Which is something you say when your team wins ugly.  But Michigan really needed this win, which, of course, will be immediately devalued by the national press because of how bad Iowa looked, and Iowa was overrated because who had Iowa played really?  It's going to happen because it's what always happens.  But things need to get fixed this week on the offensive side.  Figure something out, because you can't keep telling the defense it's all on them week in, week out.

Sap's Decals:

DEFENSIVE CHAMPION – I’m just going to come right out and say it, the ENTIRE DEFENSE played lights-out for Michigan. I mean, this was a total TEAM EFFORT. From Don Brown mixing up his schemes and his calls, to the d-line sacking the Iowa QB eight times, to the defensive secondary getting 3 interceptions, to the linebackers limiting the Hawkeyes to just one yard rushing. It wasn’t perfect, but in a one-possession game where the offense was having problems getting into the end zone, you just knew the defense was going to have to make the last stop – and they did.

Poor sam webb – probably going to throw out his back carrying all the water for this offense.  I usually appreciate his level-headed takes, but listening today makes me think we’re in two different worlds (cue Brian’s Sinbad/genie reference).

We *should* be 3-2, and a coin toss away from 2-3.  Think about that.  Objectively, this team as presently constructed cannot beat PSU (at night) or ND, they’re a 50/50 against MSU, and don’t even get me started about OSU…

You have to make a change – Shea looks utterly loss out there and the Offense has no confidence whatsoever.  I’m not one to usually call for the backup, but at this point what do you have to lose?  This isn’t even a hot take.  Pre-season everyone was raving about Dcaff – “we have two starting QBs” – and it wasn’t just smoke because they played both Shea and Dcaff together. 

So you liked Dcaff earlier, why not trot him out now?

All signs say "yes, play McCaffery now!" but something tells me Shea is gonna be the guy for the rest of the season.. barring injury. I hope I'm wrong and they go back to him once he's cleared but I'm cynical and jaded after years and years of Michigan not doing what they should to help right the ship. 

I've resigned myself to a 7-5 regular season and a (hopefully) McCaffery-led bowl win over some cupcake to get us to 8-wins and once again re-ignite the offseason hype train.

I don't know where all these "signs" that McCaffrey is any better are coming from?  One drive against Wisconsin?  Assorted spots from last year where he ran the ball reasonably well?  The only sign I see is people angry about Patterson (and the entire offense) looking bad and thinking any change is worth it.  Which is a fine decision if you accept that, no, Michigan probably loses 6 games then and the fat part of the bell curve ends with McCaffrey on the sideline injured and a combination of Milton and Patterson finishing off the year.  That's fine, but he isn't going to come in and suddenly turn this team into a monster.

well, mccaffery isn't afraid to run the ball, which would help open up this offense.  he just needs to be coached-up to protect himself better.  add in that shae is terrible in the pocket.  i believe mccaffery will move the chains much better than shae on a consistent basis due to his legs alone.  shae is likely the better passer now, but i will leave with a mccaffery learning curve and some of the freshman mistakes..  if healthy, he has a full week to prepare against illinois than the real fun starts.

Yeah, he also isn't afraid to run like this is the first time he's played football.  I don't know that I've ever seen a QB who is so willing to run and also unwilling to protect himself.  I mentioned in another thread that even his "slides" are just him kneeling down with his upper-body perpendicular to the ground, waiting for an inevitable crushing hit.  If he doesn't fix that, he'll never make it through a game.

to some degree, I’m happy he got savagely destroyed.  Maybe he will change how he plays so he can actually, you know, provide another option for the team instead of just being an idiot while running.  McCaffrey, if you are reading this, you Dumb fuck, I can’t believe I have to remind you that you broke your collarbone and got concussed in 15 plays over the past 2 seasons.  It’s not hard to see that you are not capable of taking hits like you think you are.  Manage risk and And take the job from Shea.  It’s literally being handed to you. 

All I see is stupidity on this team.  In every facet save for defense but even then, they end up playing man against osU

October 7th, 2019 at 5:27 PM ^

Does anyone legitimately think McCaffery can survive an entire game, let alone the remainder of the season?  In the two extended play situations he has 1) broken his collarbone, and 2) received a concussion after two blows to the head.  
I'm not ready to put the chinadoll label on him yet, but based on evidence....

María Rivas - Muaré

 Cache   


María Rivas Castro (Caracas, 26 de enero de 1960-Miami, Florida; 19 de septiembre de 2019)1​ fue una cantautora venezolana de jazz latino.
María Rivas se crió en La Florida, una urbanización al este de Caracas. Realizó su primaria en el colegio
Sus padres fueron José Manuel Rivas Núñez y María Asunción Castro Durán, esta última natural de Galicia, España. Tenia un hermano, José Manuel Rivas. Su infancia transcurrió rodeada por grandes maestros de la plástica venezolana como Pascual Navarro.
En 1983 comenzó a cantar profesionalmente en clubes nocturnos locales. Sería descubierta por el productor musical Gerry Weil quien la bautizaría como La Rubia con voz de negra —en alusión a su fuerte rango vocal—. Pronto se trasladó a Aruba, donde se presentó durante dos años y medio en un show nocturno de jazz llamado Sentimental Journey Through Jazz —viaje sentimental a través del jazz—, donde asombró al público con su dominio de las variaciones de jazz y el scat al estilo de Ella Fitzgerald y de otras divas notables. Regresó a Caracas y comenzó a actuar en sus escenarios más importantes, convirtiéndose rápidamente en una de las artistas más queridas de Venezuela.

Cantó canciones en inglés, español, portugués e italiano.
Se convirtió en una voz líder en el movimiento medioambiental de su país, lo que le ganó amplio reconocimiento. Su mensaje musical como compositor a menudo tuvo connotaciones ecológicas.
En 2005 Rivas regresó a Aruba para ser parte del show Good Save The Queen, un tributo a la banda británica de rock Queen. Desde 2006 Rivas había estado cuatro meses cada año en Tokio (Japón), donde había encontrado reconocimiento por sus actuaciones de jazz estadounidense clásico, latino y brasileño, compartiendo escenarios del verano con el trío Índigo, un ensamble local de jazz en Roppongi (Japón).
Rivas grabó once álbumes como solista y también tocó en vivo en Alemania, Austria, Brasil, Colombia, Estados Unidos, Francia, Italia, los Países Bajos, Panamá, Portugal, Puerto Rico, República Dominicana y Suiza.
En 2008 Rivas celebró el 25.º aniversario desde el inicio de su larga carrera, con conciertos homenajes especiales dedicados al maestro Aldemaro Romero (1928-2007), con música y arreglos del propio Romero. En 2013 Rivas celebró su 30.º aniversario como cantautora, con conciertos especiales realizados a lo largo de Venezuela y Estados Unidos.

En 2010 María Rivas se mudó de su Venezuela natal a Estados Unidos instalándose en Fort Lauderdale y allí comenzó a penetrar en el mundo jazzístico de Florida participando con el cuarteto Araya- Orta, el clarinetista de jazz y música hebrea Paul Green en varias presentaciones importantes como las del Centro Cultural teatro Aventura, en 2010 reprodujo un programa en vivo de Ed Bell para WLRN radio, convirtiéndose en un maravilloso disco de jazz latino, María Rivas paralelamente a su capacidad y talento musical, fue artista plástica y estando vinculada con el mundo de la música fue escogida por los Grammy Latinos en su 14.ª edición del 2013 a ser la pintora del emblemático Gramófono que caracteriza el premio más importante de la música, por razones personales decidió luego de esta experiencia retirarse por motivos de salud un tiempo, regresando en 2015 para presentaciones en Festival de Boquete Panamá, PineCrest en Miami a la vez que produjo su undécimo disco llamado Motivos. En sus últimos años preparó varios conceptos musicales y teatrales para ser presentados en Venezuela, en la Ciudad de Londres donde en 2018 realizó un videoclip de su versión «Nature Boy»

From Ian:

Seth Frantzman: Israel appears strong, but there are risks ahead
BUT ISRAEL has some issues on the horizon that, if they would come together at the wrong time, would be a perfect storm. Among these is the increasing hostility of Turkey. Ankara has become more nationalist and religious-nationalist, a toxic mix. It is flexing its muscles, taking over swaths of northern Syria and seeking to keep on track to totally remove the Americans from the region. That would be a setback for the US – and setbacks for the US also impact Israel. Turkey is buying the S-400, not in itself a problem for Israel. Ostensibly, both Ankara and Jerusalem have an interesting relationship with Moscow today, borne of Russia’s increased role in the region, particularly in Syria.

Russia’s role in Turkey is strategic and also related to energy and Syria. This can impact Israel in a complex way. Turkey’s current government is seeking to take up the mantle of being the main opposition to Israel in the region. It bashes Israel over Jerusalem, and its media run hyperbolic stories about Israeli abuses. Turkey is close to the Muslim Brotherhood today and wants to see Hamas have a more prominent role in Ramallah. Yet Israel can deal with Turkey’s anger. The question is whether it can deal with the emerging Turkey-Iran relationship.

Iran has been a challenge for Israel due to a variety of reasons, but lately it is capitalizing on the weakness of its adversaries. That means it is increasingly playing a role in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. That means it is transferring precision missile technology to Hezbollah.

Iran’s IRGC says that it can destroy Israel. It launched an attack on Saudi Arabia on September 14 that has ramifications for Israel. That Riyadh did not respond shows that Israel’s supposed common interests with the Gulf are more problematic than in reality. Saudi Arabia won’t confront Iran. So who will confront Iran? The US? No. The US has signaled it will not. And the next US administration may be more pro-Iran than this one. That could give Tehran what it wants in Syria, which means a kind of “land bridge” that ends near the Golan and threatens Israel.

What Israel faces today is potentially two strong adversaries in Turkey and Iran, although they are quite different in how they confront Israel. Turkey uses soft power; Iran uses hard power. But Israel, appearing strong, now faces these challenges in some ways alone. It is not like the 1950s, when Israel was truly alone. Israel has made major inroads in India, China and elsewhere. But the immediate challenges are still there. It is dangerous to be too confident and arrogant today, and it is essential that Jerusalem seek to analyze and deal with these challenges in the long-term because short term planning won’t work. Iran thinks in the long term – and its role in the region is a long-term role.
Jpost Editorial: No Third Election
Against that backdrop, the 22nd Knesset was sworn in on Thursday in Jerusalem. Many are wondering if, like the 21st Knesset, it will also last for less than two months and perhaps become the shortest-lived legislature in Israel’s history.

As the Post’s Lahav Harkov pointed out on Wednesday, there are only eight new members of this Knesset, as well as another nine who are returning from past stints as legislators, which means that 103 members of the 22nd Knesset will be sworn in for the second time this year.

A proud institution, the Knesset is in danger of becoming a laughing stock. But it’s no joke. Israel needs a stable government and a stable Knesset. Every attempt must be made to prevent the newly sworn-in Knesset from becoming the shortest Knesset in Israeli history.

All parties should take the responsibility upon themselves as if they alone are charged with insuring that a third election is not called for. The country has survived some nine months of paralysis, but it’s only a matter of time before the string starts to unravel out of control and the situation begins to do irreparable damage to Israel and its population.

At Thursday’s ceremony, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein led the MKs with “I pledge allegiance to the State of Israel and to faithfully fulfill my mission in the Knesset.” And the newly sworn-in lawmakers responded: “I pledge.”

Let’s hope they take that allegiance and mission seriously and prevent a third election.

Amb. Alan Baker: The EU Demonstrates a Distinct Political Bias Against Israel
European Union Special Representative for the Middle East Peace Process Susanna Terstal, writing in the Jerusalem Post on Sep. 21, evidently believes that incessant repetition of the phrase "two-state solution" adds some element of legitimacy and feasibility to the idea. But the two-state solution has never been agreed-upon between Israel and the Palestinians, and does not figure in any of the agreements between them. It is nothing more than an expression of wishful thinking within the UN and the EU.

To the contrary, the Oslo Accords, to which the EU itself is a signatory, clearly leaves the issue of the permanent status of the territories to be decided in negotiations. Thus, whether the outcome will be one, two or three states, or a federation or confederation, remains on the negotiating table. By incessantly plying a two-state solution, the EU is in fact prejudging an agreed negotiating issue.

Suggestions by Israeli leaders to "apply sovereignty" led EU representatives to complain that unilateral modification of the Oslo Accords "undermines the entire agreement" and "dismantles Oslo." One wonders why the EU did not view the recent declarations by the Palestinian leadership canceling the territorial division between areas A, B and C in a similar light. Did this not undermine the accords?

The EU representative also expressed support for a "Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines." Yet the issue of borders is an agreed-upon permanent-status negotiating issue, and her presumption of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines clearly contradicts and prejudges both the Oslo Accords and UN Security Council Resolution 242 of 1967.

The EU cannot in good faith claim that it does not take sides in the conflict. The EU has not only taken sides, but clearly demonstrates a distinct political bias against Israel in virtually all its positions, policies, statements and dealings regarding the Israeli-Palestinian negotiation process.



Iran displays ancient clay tablets, returned by US, from empire that freed Jews
The National Museum of Iran opened on Wednesday an exhibition of around 300 cuneiform clay tablets returned from the United States after a drawn-out legal saga.

The tablets were found at the ruins of Persepolis, capital of the Persian Achaemenid Empire (6th – 4th c. BC) in the south of Iran. Cyrus the Great, who ruled during the Achaemenid Empire, is said to have liberated the Jews from Babylonian captivity in 539 BCE, allowing them to return home and build the Second Temple.

The works on display belonged to a group of 1,783 clay tablets or tablet fragments returned to Iran by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago.

In the 1930s, the university had received on loan around 30,000 tablets or tablet fragments found at Persepolis for research purposes, Iranian media reported.

A large portion of the tablets were returned in three batches between 1948 and 2004 before their restitution was blocked by legal action initiated by American survivors of an attack in Israel in 1997 carried out by the Palestinian Hamas terror group.

Blaming Tehran for supporting the armed group, the plaintiffs demanded the seizure of the tablets and their sale put toward the $71.5 million that Iran was ordered to pay in the case.

The proceedings only ended in February 2018 when a US Supreme Court decision banned the seizure of the works.
Yossi Cohen: The Mossad Spy Chief Who Stole Iran's Secret Nuclear Archives
In March 2018, Mossad Director Yossi Cohen, 58, updated then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo on what the Mossad had found inside Iran's secret nuclear archives that it had stolen from the heart of Tehran in January 2018. Sources close to Cohen told the Jerusalem Post that the information the Mossad seized is "still being used right now" to glean high-quality and valuable intelligence. A map of nuclear sites captured in the operation has yet to be made public. These revelations "even go beyond Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's revelation of the Abadeh nuclear site" earlier this month. Cohen says Pompeo praised the Mossad for redefining "daring and boldness."

Dozens of agents were involved in surveillance missions and the heist itself. Neutralizing any electronic surveillance that could expose them, they spent six hours and 29 minutes nabbing Iran's secret nuclear files, which were kept in 32 safes. They used special torches to slice into these safes. They loaded the vast files onto trucks and used Iranian smugglers to get across the border.

Cohen's view is that relations with Sunni countries in the Gulf are "not as much about personal trust, but about overlapping national interests" - especially when it comes to Iran. For example, while Cohen would be against sharing sensitive Israeli technologies with the Saudis to combat the drone threat from Iran, he would seek to help states in the Gulf combat Iran together in other ways.

Regarding the Palestinians, sources close to Cohen indicate that he does not believe anything will move on the peace process until PA President Mahmoud Abbas leaves office.
FDD: The Israeli–Palestinian Struggle, Continued.
There is no chance of a “peace party” returning to Jerusalem unless Israelis see that Palestinians have unequivocally denounced the past, that the celebrations of those who’ve died killing Israelis are rejected. That is impossible to envision in the near-term: neither Fatah, nor Hamas, nor the Israelis, nor Washington want the Palestinian people voting. All fear the worst—the wrong side winning. Perhaps most perversely, the Israelis are invested in a security status quo with Fatah that likely negates the chance of any Palestinian change, and surely makes Hamas more popular on the West Bank than its tyranny in Gaza has earned. But it’s possible that if there were a free vote among Palestinians the hostility towards Israelis—the fundamental rejection of the legitimacy of a Jewish state—could be the common denominator among Palestinians who otherwise loathe Fatah’s and Hamas’ dictatorships. Palestinians again voting could lead to intense violence, among Palestinians and against Israelis. Nonetheless, Palestinian popular sovereignty is likely the only way out of this cul-de-sac. We have two peoples wanting the same land with national and especially religious narratives that negate the other’s. For even non-practicing Muslims, Moses is a great prophet, trying to lead his people toward the one, true calling—Islam. A Jewish homeland wasn’t in Allah’s message. Yet the unrelenting secularism of Westerners reduces the most compelling stories we have to differences about water rights, East Jerusalem, and security checkpoints.

The basic character of a people and faith can change, but that usually happens after a truly devastating military defeat or a long evolution. The Palestinians haven’t actually seen a society-crushing catastrophe; they have endured foreign, non-Muslim overlords, with all of the indignities, and incompetent, avaricious, ambitious, insouciant, deluded and sometimes brutal native rulers (they, however, get a middling score in hideousness in the modern Middle East).

Since 2002, the Israelis appear to have a consensus: Palestinians cannot be trusted. On the other side, Palestinians seem more conflicted about the Jews, more divided religiously and culturally, more prone to internecine violence today than they were when the Israelis directly ruled all of the West Bank and Gaza.

The continuing decline of America in the Middle East will unavoidably remove certain delusions about what might be possible between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The torpor of the peace process under Obama and Trump is likely the new American standard. If they haven’t already, Palestinians will give up on the idea of Washington’s intercession, of American democracy coercing Israeli democracy into making concessions to unelected Palestinian officials. For the Palestinian people that will, at least, change the rhetoric and excuses of the ruling elite.

America’s retreat may tempt the Israelis to act more hubristically towards the Palestinians, to take land in the West Bank that has no plausible security value. But the most effective check on ugly Israeli actions has always been the internal debate, the tension between the executive, legislative, and judicial authorities in Israel’s messy democracy.

For decades out, it’s hard to see anything better than an unpleasant modus vivendi between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Given that it is the Middle East, however, that isn’t an awful state. Americans always want to believe that honesty is the best policy, that without honesty solutions aren’t possible. We are certainly tardy in applying that principle to the Israeli–Palestinian clash.
The Missile War in Southern Arabia: Lessons for Israel
UAV Warfare
Another hint of the effectiveness of Patriot defense are Houthi/Iranian alliance efforts both to suppress it and evade it. To elucidate this point, we need to refer to another aspect of the Houthi/Iranian war machine in Yemen: UAV warfare. UAVs are one of the main pillars of Iranian military doctrine. Together with other weapon shipments, Iran has been providing the Houthis with numerous types of UAVs, both of the larger types used for armed reconnaissance such as the Shahad 129 (roughly equivalent to Israel’s Hermes 450) and smaller “suicide” UAVs (such as the Ababil, used by Hezbollah in 2006 for attacks deep within Israel, which for the sake of Iranian deniability has been renamed Kasef 2). The Houthi arsenal is augmented by the acquisition of mail order UAVs such as the Chinese “Skywalker” available online from Ali Baba. More remarkable, the Iranians have provided the Houthis with knowhow, production machinery and expertise to set up a UAV industry of their own in their stronghold of Sad’ha in northern Yemen. The Houthi UAV industry is now producing unique designs of long-range machines, some equipped with jet engines, obviously designed in Iran. Beyond the classic UAV roles of reconnaissance and light bombardment, the Houthi/Iranian alliance is using them for direct “suicide” attacks on Patriot batteries. Three incidents of direct attacks on Patriot batteries have been claimed: Two attacks were within Yemen, probably targeting UAE batteries in Mocha and Marib, and one attack on a Patriot battery defending the Saudi border city of Najran, with unknown results.

Even more significantly, the Houthi/Iranian alliance exploits the Patriot’s system limitations in engaging low and slow threats in order to penetrate beneath the Saudi air/missile defense shield. In fact, UAVs are now being used by the Houthi’s as ersatz land attack cruise missiles. With immunity against air and missile defense, and with much better accuracy than ordinary ballistic missiles, UAVs now seem to be the preferred weapons for imaginative and audacious strikes deep within Saudi territory. For example, the civilian airport of the Saudi town of Abha, about 120 km. from the Yemeni border, was attacked by Houthi suicide UAVs no less than three times during the month of June 2019, wounding 28 passengers and airport workers. In August 2019, the Houthis managed to strike the Shaybah oilfield deep within Saudi Arabia, almost 1200 Km from the Houthi stronghold in Sad’ha. The attack was carried out by no less than 10 UAVs and sparked a fire in gas storage tanks. Such a complex attack needs precise coordination and excellent navigation, which demonstrates the proficiency achieved by Iran’s UAV operators. While those strikes did not cause excessive damage – perhaps intentionally so – they were propaganda coups for the Houthis, providing them with solid achievements in the cognitive battlefield.

The fourth lesson for Israel is the growing military role of UAVs both for missile defense suppression and for evasion. UAVs were first used by Hezbollah for reconnaissance over Israel even prior to the 2006 Lebanon war. At the closing stage of that war, four suicide UAVs were launched by Hezbollah against Israeli targets (One suffered a failure and fell near the border, two were intercepted by Israeli jet fighters, and the fourth vanished). In the 2014 Gaza war Hamas tried to attack Tel Aviv with its own UAVs (Two, perhaps three UAVs were shot down by Patriot air defense batteries). This experience is not indicative of the future. The Yemen war demonstrates how UAVs will be employed in future wars in significant numbers to erode Israel’s missile defense capabilities by attacking the Iron Dome, David Sling and Arrow batteries. Hostile UAVs, in conjunction with precision rockets, may well be tasked to damage Israel’s critical infrastructures such as desalination plants. Consequently, Israel needs to integrate air defense capabilities into its missile defense systems, and to provide its critical infrastructures with their own point defenses.

The current civil wars in the Middle East – especially in Syria and in Yemen – resemble the Spanish civil war of the 1930s inasmuch as they are exploited by outside powers to test new doctrines, weapons and tactics in realistic battle conditions. What the Axis powers (and to a lesser extent the USSR) did in Spain during the 1930s is being done today by Iran in Yemen.

It would be advisable for Israel’s Ministry of Defense and the IDF to closely study the civil war in Yemen, particularly its rocket and drone warfare aspects. The weapons and tactics in use in Yemen today will be employed against Israel tomorrow.
Israeli President Tells Papal Diplomat Israel Wants to Share Land with Palestinians
Israel wants to “share the land and find a way to live together” with the Palestinians, President Reuven Rivlin told Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, one of the highest-ranking Vatican diplomats, when they met at the President’s Residence on Thursday night.

Sandri, who is the Prefect of the Congregations for the Oriental Catholic Churches, came with a delegation that included several Franciscan priests, as well as the Papal Nuncio and the Custos of the Holy Land.

He is in the region to mark the 800th anniversary of the Pilgrimage of Peace to the Middle East by St. Francis of Assisi and his dialogue with the Sultan of Egypt.

Rivlin, who has met with Pope Francis and is aware of the efforts being made by the Vatican to bring about a cessation of hostilities in the Middle East in general and between Israel and the Palestinians in particular, told Sandri that he knows how hard the Vatican is working to find a solution to this century-old tragedy.

Knowing that Sandri is also going to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Rivlin asked him to convey his regards, and noted that Abbas had sent New Year greetings to the people of Israel.

Emphasizing the need to build understanding between Israelis and Palestinians, Rivlin was of the opinion that a valuable asset in this regard was the restoration of the baptismal site at Qasr el-Yahud on the Jordan River near Jericho, where Jesus first met John the Baptist.

The restoration project was approved by Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian leadership, said Rivlin, who was personally involved in the process.
Dr. Martin Sherman: Alternative Jordans?
Although the details of the “Deal” are as yet obscure, it would appear the Jordan is slated to play a major role in it—grudgingly or otherwise. Accordingly, the feasibility of the “Deal”—indeed its acceptability—will be dramatically impacted by the nature of the regime east of the Jordan River and its prospective stability (or lack thereof).

After all, although some may hope otherwise, there seems little prospect that any successor regime in Amman will be more favorably disposed toward Israel than the current one.

This takes us back to the crucial strategic importance for Israel of the highlands of Judea-Samaria and the Jordan Valley. As I have been at pains to point out on numerous occasions, not only are these highlands the only topographical barrier between Jordan and the heavily populated coast plain, but any forces—regular or renegade—deployed on them will have complete topographical command and control of virtually all Israel’s airfields (military and civilian, including Ben Gurion, the only international airport), its major ports and naval bases, is principal traffic axes (rail and road), vital infrastructure installations/systems (electrical power, desalination plants and water conveyance), centers of civilian government and military command and 80% of the civilian population and commercial activity.

All of these will be in range of cheap, readily available weapons that have already been used against Israel from areas evacuated by it and transferred to Arab control.

Thus, the rationale of any plan that entails Israeli evacuation of this vital territory will hinge critically on the nature of the regime-type in Jordan, which abuts it from the East.

For whatever other grave detriments their might be in such a plan, it will matter greatly if Jordan is ruled by a government that strives to reign in forces hostile to Israel, or one that is indifferent to their aggressive intent—or worse, is complicit with it.

After all, should the Trump plan entail significant territorial concessions, Israel may well find itself in a situation in which it will have to contend with a huge expanse of hostile territory, stretching from the fringes of Greater Tel Aviv to the border of Iraq—and perhaps beyond.

Accordingly, Israel’s security establishment should indeed draw up plans to deal with prospective alternatives in Jordan—not only how to cope with them once they arise, but to prevent them from arising at all.
Why Israelis should support the Iraqi protesters
Another Arab Spring-like protest movement now seems to be arising, seeking to topple the present Iraqi government. As Israelis, we should support the Iraqi people in their quest for true freedom and democracy.

Mendi Safadi, heads of the Safadi Center for International Diplomacy, Research, Public Relations and Human Rights, has noted that if we want to prevent the creation of another Syria, we should call upon the community of nations to intervene as soon as possible to uphold the rights of the protesters, prevent additional bloodshed, and stop the radical Islamists, Iran, and the former Baathists from overtaking the protest movement.

“Today, this Arab Spring has begun to take over Iraq against a government that is corrupt and loyal to Iran,” Safadi said. “These protesters are against the Iranians taking over Iraq. Talks with activists on the ground and the leaders of the protest movement reveal that the people are repulsed by the government, who betrayed their nation by becoming a proxy of Iran. The Iranian takeover of Iraq has gotten the people to revolt, to take to the streets and to demand that Iraq be returned to its rightful owners. They seek freedom and basic human rights that every citizen of this world deserves.”

According to a report from the Internal Commission of Iraq, “The Iraqi government takes instructions from Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Qassem Soleimani. Over 700 members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard shot live fire at Iraqi demonstrators. There were demonstrators who were killed including men, women and children. The Iranians even went as far as burning a 2-year-old child in a car with her father. The Iraqi people are calling upon the international community to intervene urgently in order to save the Iraqi people, who have suffered under Iran and political Islam. We demand that all pro-Iranian parties be banished from Iraq and to take away all of Iran’s influence in the country. We seek to hold the regime accountable and to change from a parliamentary system to a republican form of government. We seek that the rights of women be respected, as the number of women in the country is very high. The Iraqi people will stop protesting only once our demands are met.”
Iraq crisis: Protests say anger could boil over Friday after 44 deaths
Protesters in Iraq prepared Friday for bloody clashes with security forces in Iraq after three days of protests that saw the government order live fire against the demonstrators. The protesters are angry. They have tried to block roads to the airport in Baghdad and break into the “Green Zone” where foreign embassies are located. They are shocked that officials have ordered live fire used against them.

The protests began on October 1 in the wake of Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi sidelining a popular Counter-Terrorism service commander named Abdul Wahab Al-Saadi. But the real reason for the protests are much larger. They are angry over corruption and wage stagnation and lack of opportunities.

The Prime Minister has closed down internet and sought to isolate cities in Iraq. He gave a speech on Thursday evening and has indicated he could meet the protesters. But there are no clear leaders of the protests. The demonstrators gained some solace when the Shi’ite religious leader Ayatollah Ali Sistani appeared to express sympathy on Friday. Many believed that after prayers on Friday there would be bloody clashes unless the government retrains its tactics. It is not entirely clear which police have been ordered to fire on the protesters, because protesters say they cannot identify them by uniform. Some said it was not the Federal Police but other interior ministry forces. Others claims it was members of Shi’ite militias loyal to Iran, including the Saraya Khorosani unit. But much of this is rumors and has not been confirmed. What is clear is that security forces can be heard in dozens of videos using gunfire. Up to fifty demonstrators may have been killed and thousands injured, including members of the police.

The UN has called on Iraq to have a transparent investigation about the shooting of the demonstrators. “We call on the Iraqi government to allow people to freely exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.”
Iran tries to blame Israel and US for Iraqi protests
Iranian media and local sources in Iraq have reported on the protests sweeping the country with increasing concern that the protesters oppose Iranian influence. This concern has now reached the highest levels of Iran’s regime where the narrative that has been concocted is to blame “foreign” hands for the unrest. Under this logic tens of thousands of young men, leaderless and braving the gunfire of security forces, have been sacrificing themselves by the dozens all because of some complex conspiracy.

Iraq’s government of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has shut down internet, social media and even made phone calls difficult in areas across Iraq, all to stop the protests. Yet the protests continue. To discredit them an Iranian cleric on Friday claimed the US and Israel are behind the protests. Supposedly it was to “disrupt a major annual Shi’ite Muslim pilgrimage planned to be held in Iraq later this month,” Reuters reported. “The enemy is now determined against the Islamic nation, America and Zionism are targeting the Arabaeen pilgrimage in Iraq, causing trouble,” claimed Ayatollah Mohammad Emami-Kashani.

His full Friday sermon, published at Tasnim News in Farsi claims that “America and Zionism are the enemies of God.” He mentions the Houthi rebels in Yemen who “have shown themselves against the miserable Saudi rulers,” and notes that Saudi Arabia’s reputation has been weakened. This is a reference to the September 14 drone and missile attack on Saudi Arabia. He also mentions the US “maximum pressure” sanctions on Iran and says that it has not been successful. “Endurance is the way of the martyrs.” It is in this context he says that the “enemies” are targeting the religious pilgrimages to the holy sites in Karbala, where Shi’ites make pilgrimage. He calls on people to take refuge in the shrine of Imam Hussein.

In Iraq the senior Shi’ite religious leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, lamented the deaths of dozens of protesters and called for an end to the deaths, casualties and destruction. He called on the government to listen to the people’s demands about corruption and other issues.
Russian journalist arrested in Tehran on suspicion of spying for Israel
A Russian journalist has been arrested in Iran on suspicion of spying on the Islamic Republic on behalf of Israel, according to family members and Russian media reports.

Yulia Yuzik was first declared missing earlier this week by family members who said she was arrested in Tehran days ago. Her ex-husband Boris Voytsekhovskiy posted on Facebook that Yuzik was facing charges of cooperating with Israeli intelligence services, and that her trial is scheduled for Saturday.

According to Voytsekhovskiy, Yuzik’s charges carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

It wasn’t clear when Yuzik was arrested; her last post on social media was a series of Instagram pictures taken in Kashan, a city in northern part of Isfahan province.

Voytsekhovskiy told Russian media outlets that Yuzik used to work as a correspondent in Tehran several years ago, and she returned to the Iranian capital last week at the invitation of an unknown party.
Engel bows to Arab lobbyists, pro-Israel friends are silent
An anti-Hamas bill has been severely watered down by Congressman Eliot Engel. It’s a turn of events that should trouble every supporter of Israel.

The New York Post revealed this week that Engel (D-NY), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, agreed to change the bill after heavy pressure from Qatar and the Palestinian Authority (PA)

The Post quoted “a personal acquaintance of Engel’s” as saying, “Eliot told me directly that he was getting a lot of pressure from the Qataris” about the bill. At the same time, Engel or his representatives held seven meetings this past spring with lobbyists for the PA, apparently to discuss the bill.

The Qataris didn’t like the fact that the bill mentioned Qatar’s massive financial support for Hamas. The PA didn’t like the fact that it would have penalized regimes—like the PA—that assist Hamas in various ways.

So the bill, which was authored by Rep. Brian Mast (R-Florida), was changed. The language about Qatar was removed, and loopholes were added so that aid to Hamas which is considered “humanitarian” would not be blocked.

We put “humanitarian” in quotation marks because we all remember how “humanitarian” concrete, which supposedly would be used to build homes, instead was used to build tunnels to kidnap and murder Israelis.

At this point in the story, you would imagine that those Jewish leaders who claim to be Engel’s buddies would have intervened to restore the original language of the Mast bill.
Behind the Lines: Pakistan and Israel: Much ado about nothing?
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan last week dismissed speculation that his country was moving toward the establishing of open diplomatic relations with Israel. Speaking at the Asian Society in New York City last Thursday, as reported by the Middle East Eye website, Khan reiterated Pakistan’s traditional stance on the issue:

“Pakistan has a very straightforward position,” the Pakistani prime minister and former cricket star said. “It was our founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah who was very clear that there has to be just settlement, a homeland for Palestinians, before Pakistan can recognize Israel.”

His remarks, according to Middle East Eye, were met with enthusiastic applause. They came amid widespread recent speculation at a possible diplomatic breakthrough between Jerusalem and Islamabad. Prominent Pakistani journalist Kamran Khan launched the rumors with a tweet on August 25, asking “Why can’t we openly debate pros cons of opening direct and overt channels of communication with the State of Israel?”

What is the background to the recent speculation, and is there a realistic chance of a breakthrough, or do Imran Khan’s remarks settle the matter in the negative?

THERE IS a school of thought in Pakistan that favors the abandonment, or at least the questioning, of Islamabad’s long rejection of formal ties with the Jewish state. Why now?
'Recent convert' to Islam stabs 4 to death at Paris police headquarters
A 45-year-old technology administrator at the police headquarters in central Paris went on a knife rampage inside the building on Thursday, killing three police officers and an administrative worker before he was shot dead by an officer, French officials said.

French broadcaster BFM TV said the attacker had converted to Islam 18 months ago.

Officials did not say anything about the motive for the attack and said they were still trying to discover if there was a terrorism link.

The man launched the attack in his office then moved to other parts of the large 19th-century building across the street from the Notre Dame Cathedral.

An officer stopped the attack when he shot the assailant in the compound's courtyard, said a police official. The official was not authorized to talk publicly about the case and requested anonymity.
IDF thwarts weapons smuggling attempt from Lebanon to Israel
The IDF and Israel Police thwarted an attempt to smuggle weapons from Lebanon into Israel in September, according to an IDF spokesperson.

An IDF field observer from the 869th battalion spotted two suspects acting suspiciously on the Lebanese side of the border with Israel near the border fence. IDF soldiers went to the scene to check the issue.

Bags found in the area contained about 40 pistols and magazines which were meant to be smuggled from Lebanon into Israel. The background of the incident is being looked into.

One suspect was arrested on the Israeli side of the border and was transferred for questioning by security forces.

"I saw a suspect approaching the fence and immediately realized that this was an unusual incident," said Pvt. Adi ben Naim, the field observer who identified the suspects. "I alerted the troops and directed them to the location. It was only after the incident that I realized that a very large weapon-smuggling attempt was thwarted. My job as a field observer is to identify what takes place in the field and alert my commanders; which is exactly what I did in this incident.




Israeli military marks ‘Mean Girls Day’ by trolling Iran on Twitter
The Israel Defense Forces marked “Mean Girls Day” this week by tweeting a meme of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Lebanese Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah.

The meme, posted on Thursday, October 3, was an altered version of a “never before seen” photo published by the Iranian government showing the supreme leader, Nasrallah and Qassem Soleimani — the commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force.

The IDF photoshopped the Iranians into a “Mean Girls” scene alongside Lindsay Lohan, with the caption: “There’s no one meaner than the mean girls of the Middle East…”

The IDF added #DontSitWithThem and #MeanGirlsDay to their post.

October 3 was a date that was mentioned in passing by Lohan’s character to her crush in Mean Girls, and has since become a pop cultural phenomenon marked annually by movie fans.

The “Don’t sit with them” refers to a line in the movie when Rachel McAdams’s character Regina George is turned away from popular clique’s table at lunch because she’s wearing sweatpants.


Arab citizens of Israel undergo quiet revolution
The Arab citizens of Israel need rapid development of their areas. They dream of having high-tech zones and industrial centers; they seek enhanced police work to battle the crime that is raging in the streets of Arab cities; and they resent the vicious incitement against them that was led for years by the prime minister and the ruling party. Will the future government, which for now is still nowhere to be seen, be able to fulfill all of these demands and build bridges between the establishment and one-fifth of Israel’s population?

During the recent political campaign, the Likud party accused Gantz numerous times of “planning to create a government with [Joint List MKs] Ahmad Tibi and Ayman Odeh,” but the leaders of the bloc had ruled it out many times. When Blue and White MK Ram Ben-Barak, ex-deputy director of the Mossad, turned to the Arabs this summer, he said that Blue and White needed them “to change the government.” But what will happen the day after such a change is accomplished?

Amjad Iraqi, a contributing editor at +972 magazine, said to The Media Line that what is missing from the tactical decision of the Joint List is thought about the day after. “This decision is quite some gamble that could also backfire, especially if a unity government will be formed eventually between Likud and the Blue and White bloc. I do understand the logic —Ayman Odeh decided to prioritize getting rid of Netanyahu, and most of the public endorsed him because they want to change at least some part of the equation. But how do we know that the Blue and White bloc, whose leaders had their share of critical and negative remarks about Arabs, will be able to live up to its promises?” said Iraqi.

El-Sana believes that if the Joint List is unable to maximize its gains this time around, the alternative for the next time will be voting for existing Jewish parties or for a joint Arab-Jewish party, a project that el-Sana tried to run this time together with the former Knesset speaker, Avrum Burg. There are also many question marks about the participation of the Balad party, which is increasingly seen by many in the Arab public as a destabilizing element that fails to serve its people. “If they were to participate in the elections today by themselves, they would go down. They have three seats in the Joint List, but they are worth only 1.5 seats, or even less” says Darawshe. On the opposite side, Iraqi believes that Balad gives legitimacy to the Joint List, serving as a link between them and the wider Palestinian cause. “Balad still represents a significant portion of voters. They need the Joint List, and the Joint List needs them,” he concludes.

For now, Arab voters seem to be quite satisfied with the result. They proved to be resilient against incitement and intimidation, increased their representation at the Knesset, and now will wait just like everyone else to see how the current political reality TV unfolds.

The leaders of the Joint List will now have to prove to their voters that they can make some real gains with the increased power that they received this time. Considering the shaky structure of the bloc, which includes four different parties with contradicting ideologies, this will not be easy. If no government is formed and Israel goes to a third round of elections, the bloc will have to campaign extremely hard to maintain its success. For now, it is unlikely that the Joint List will top its current result—13 seats. The quiet revolution in the Arab sector, however, will continue, sweeping Arab Israeli citizens away from segregation and isolation, toward integration and equality.
Thousands of Arab Israelis march, block roads to protest deadly crime wave
Thousands of Arab Israelis held protests Friday at the conclusion of prayers, a day after a general strike over a wave of deadly violence within the minority community.

Protesters blocked roads, including sections of the major highways in the north of the country. Demonstrators carried signs with slogans such as “our children’s blood is not cheap” and chanted slogans about what they say is police inaction on the issue.

Ayman Odeh, the head of the Knesset’s predominantly Arab Joint List faction, called on the Jewish community to join the protests, saying that a society without weapons should be the ideal for everyone.

“I also urge the Jewish public to join the protests. A society without firearms is a civil and social aim for us all,” Odeh tweeted.
Some Israelis to Celebrate Sukkot with 4 Species Holders Made in Gaza
Some Israelis — many, in fact — will celebrate the holiday of Sukkot this year holding their four species bound with holders produced in the Gaza Strip.

Ahead of the Jewish holiday, the IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) has approved the import of tens of thousands of four species holders, used for the traditional customs of the holiday.

The four species – the etrog, a citron fruit; the lulav, a frond of a date palm; the hadas, a myrtle bough; and the aravah, a willow branch – are the species the Jewish people are commanded to bind together during the holiday.

The holders are made out of dried palm leaves, woven into a shape that allows the four species to be held together comfortably during the holiday prayers. The abundance of palm trees in Gaza, as well as cheap labor, makes the enclave a prime location for the production of the holders.

Despite the growing tension between Hamas, the terror group that controls Gaza and Israel, COGAT was able to facilitate the import successfully, passing it through the Kerem Shalom Crossing under heavy security inspection.
Ha'aretz: Meet the Palestinian Villagers Living Out the American Dream
Halfway between the West Bank cities of Ramallah and Nablus, the road gives way to an exit unlike any other along Israel’s Highway 60. At first glance, this route — lined with palm trees and polished sidewalks that lead up to lavish stone villas — looks like a well-funded Jewish settlement. But a closer look reveals that unlike other typical settlements, there is no security gate at the entrance to the community and its houses are not lined up in rows along the hilltops.

The expensive homes scattered on slopes among olive trees, reminiscent of the famous Hollywood Boulevard, are actually a window into the Palestinian diaspora. The majority of their dwellers are dual American-Palestinian nationals who live in the United States for most of the year and treat the village of Turmus Ayya as their summer home.

Turmus Ayyans are not only based in the United States. These Palestinian villagers are spread throughout the world, with members of the community living in Spain, Panama, Cuba and Brazil. According to the village’s municipal office, there are some 11,000 Turmus Ayyans in total; 4,000 are permanent residents, while 7,000 made their home abroad.

Unlike the majority of Palestinians living in the diaspora, Turmus Ayyans are not refugees of the 1948 war. Rather, they are economic immigrants who chose to leave this West Bank village in pursuit of better financial opportunities. Residents told Haaretz that the first villager to immigrate was Odeh Abdel Qader, who left for the United States in 1909 and worked in Manhattan's Little Syria (where the Financial District is situated today). Local Wadi Abu Awad recalls Qader’s return to the village: "He was the guy who came from America," he says. Throughout the 20th century, Qader’s legacy became an inspiration for other Turmus Ayyans who wished to chase the American Dream.

Hamas Facing Growing Criticism in Gaza
A picture making the rounds on social media shows the leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, with his six sons, standing healthy in tailored suits, and beneath it, a picture of Gaza youths who have had a leg amputated after rioting at the Gaza fence.

Another example is a recording by a Gazan father whose son was wounded at the border confrontations.

"I was told I needed to provide his medicine out of my own pocket. If he were the son of one of the Hamas higher-ups, the whole world would have given aid."

"Where am I supposed to get money for medicine? They told my boy to get on the bus and protest, and then they threw him out to die."


Iran not 'drawing back' militarily after Saudi attack-US admiral
Iran has not drawn back to a less threatening military posture in the region following the Sept. 14 attack on Saudi Arabia, the top U.S. admiral in the Middle East told Reuters, suggesting persistent concern despite a lull in violence.

"I don't believe that they're drawing back at all," Vice Admiral Jim Malloy, commander of the U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet, said in an interview.

The United States, Saudi Arabia, Britain, France and Germany have publicly blamed the attack on Iran, which denies involvement in the strike on the world's biggest crude oil-processing facility. The Iran-aligned Houthi militant group in Yemen has claimed responsibility.

Malloy did not comment on any U.S. intelligence guiding his assessment. But he acknowledged that he monitored Iranian activities closely, when asked if he had seen any concerning movements of Iranian missiles in recent weeks.

Malloy said he regularly tracks Iranian cruise and ballistic missile movements -- "whether they're moving to storage, away from storage." He also monitors whether Iran's minelaying capabilities head to distribution sites or away from them.

"I get a briefing of movements on a daily basis and then assessments as to what that could mean," he said.

Relations between the United States and Iran have deteriorated sharply since President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear accord last year and reimposed sanctions on its oil exports.

For months, Iranian officials issued veiled threats, saying that if Tehran were blocked from exporting oil, other countries would not be able to do so either.

However, Iran has denied any role in a series of attacks that have followed, including against tankers in the Gulf using limpet mines earlier this year.
UN nuclear watchdog says Iran taking ‘step in right direction’
The UN’s nuclear watchdog said Friday Iran had taken “a step in the right direction” towards dealing with questions on its nuclear program but cautioned that the issues have not been “completely addressed.”

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) did not detail what the questions related to but said it was “discussing substance” with the Iranians.

There has been “engagement” from Tehran in recent weeks on questions relating to its nuclear safeguards declarations to the agency, IAEA acting head Cornel Feruta told journalists in Vienna.

“[That] engagement doesn’t mean that the issues are completely addressed but it’s a step in the right direction,” he added.

Feruta said the queries did not touch directly on the faltering 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers but rather on Iran’s separate safeguards agreement with the agency.

Diplomatic sources in Vienna say the agency has been waiting for information from the Iranians relating to samples taken earlier this year from a warehouse near the capital Tehran.
France: Iran, US have one month to come to negotiating table
Iran and the United States have one month to get to the negotiating table, France's foreign minister warned, suggesting Tehran's plan to increase its nuclear activities in November would spark renewed tension in the region.

French President Emmanuel Macron attempted but failed to broker talks between US President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York last week.

"We consider that these initiatives, which didn't succeed, are still on the table and it is up to Iran and the United States to seize [them] in a relatively short amount of time because Iran has announced new measures to reduce its commitments to the Vienna accord in November," Jean-Yves Le Drian told parliament's foreign affairs committee.

Iran is breaching the restrictions of its 2015 nuclear deal with major powers in response to US sanctions imposed since Washington pulled out of the agreement in May of last year.

It has said its next roll-back would be at the start of November, and diplomats fear that this next breach could force European powers, which are trying to salvage the accord, to respond.
Iran rejects French call for release of dual national scholar
Iran said on Friday that France's call for it to release a detained French-Iranian scholar was an interference in its internal affairs and would not help resolve the issue, the official news agency IRNA reported.

France's Foreign Ministry on Thursday demanded Iran release dual national Fariba Adelkhah, a senior research fellow at Sciences Po university in Paris, who was detained on unspecified charges earlier this year.

"(Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas) Mousavi said the French Foreign Ministry's interference in the case of an Iranian citizen was irrelevant..., and added: 'This will not only fail to help resolve the issue, but rather make the legal process more complicated'," IRNA reported.

Rights activists have accused Iran of arresting a number of dual nationals to try to win concessions from other countries - a charge that the Islamic republic has regularly dismissed.

Adelkhah's arrest came at a time when France and other European powers were caught up in an international standoff over Tehran's 2015 nuclear deal, which the United States abandoned last year.
U.S. Sanctions Paralyze Imports via Iranian Ports
More than 20 ships carrying around one million tonnes of grain are stuck outside Iranian ports as US sanctions create payment problems and hamper the country’s efforts to import vital commodities, sources directly involved in the trade said.

Trading companies such as Bunge (BG.N) and China’s COFCO International have been hit by payment delays and additional costs of up to $15,000 a day as the renewed US restrictions stifle the processing of transactions, trade sources said.

According to Reuters, food, medicine and other humanitarian supplies are exempt from sanctions Washington re-imposed after US President Donald Trump said he was walking away from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program.

But the US measures targeting everything from oil sales to shipping and financial activities have deterred several foreign banks from doing any Iranian business, including humanitarian deals such as food shipments.

The few remaining lenders still processing Iranian business face multiple hurdles to facilitate payments as financing channels freeze up.
U.S. Sanctions Squeezing Iran-Backed Hizbullah in Lebanon
The conflict between Iran and the U.S. that has created tensions throughout much of the Middle East is now also being felt in Lebanon, where Washington has slapped sanctions on the Iran-backed Hezbollah and warned they could soon expand to its allies, further deepening the tiny Arab country’s economic crisis.

The Trump administration has intensified sanctions on the Lebanese militant group and institutions linked to it to unprecedented levels, targeting lawmakers for the first time as well as a local bank that Washington claims has ties to the group.

Two U.S. officials visited Beirut in September and warned the sanctions will increase to deprive Hezbollah of its sources of income. The push is further adding to Lebanon’s severe financial and economic crisis, with Lebanese officials warning the country’s economy and banking sector can’t take the pressure.

“We have taken more actions recently against Hezbollah than in the history of our counterterrorism program,” Sigal P. Mandelker, undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence at the U.S. Treasury, said in the United Arab Emirates last month.

Mandelker said Washington is confident the Lebanese government and the central bank will “do the right thing here in making sure that Hezbollah can no longer have access to funds at the bank.”
Iran’s regime lashes out at German antisemitism commissioner in response to 'Post' article
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s foreign ministry blasted a prominent German official on Wednesday after the commissioner tasked with combating antisemitism told The Jerusalem Post that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s administration should withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions on Tehran for its nefarious conduct.

The Iranian regime-controlled PressTV wrote that "in an online statement on Wednesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi condemned the remarks by Uwe Becker, commissioner of the Hessian federal state government for Jewish life and the fight against anti-Semitism.”

PressTV added that “Becker on Monday called on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to put Israel's security above ‘possible economic interests’ that comes with the deal – known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”

Becker, the commissioner of the Hessian federal state government for Jewish life and the fight against antisemitism, told the Post on Monday that “the current escalation with Israel should be reason enough for Germany to advocate the.... Iran nuclear agreement, which has been undermined by Iran... [as] dead, and for the necessary sanctions against Tehran to become effective again in their entirety.”



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Sorelle e fratelli, buongiorno!

Benvenuti a tutti e grazie per il vostro lavoro di preparazione: tutti hanno lavorato tanto, da quel momento di Puerto Maldonado fino ad oggi. Grazie tante.

Il Sinodo... parlerò in castigliano, è meglio...

Il Sinodo per l’Amazzonia, possiamo dire che ha quattro dimensioni: la dimensione pastorale, la dimensione culturale, la dimensione sociale e la dimensione ecologica. La prima, la dimensione pastorale, è quella essenziale, quella che comprende tutto. Noi la affrontiamo con cuore cristiano e guardiamo alla realtà dell’Amazzonia con occhi di discepolo per comprenderla e interpretarla con occhi di discepolo, perché non esistono ermeneutiche neutre, ermeneutiche asettiche, sono sempre condizionate da un’opzione previa, la nostra opzione previa è quella di discepoli. E anche con occhi di missionari, perché l’amore che lo Spirito Santo ha posto in noi ci spinge all’annuncio di Gesù Cristo; un annuncio — lo sappiamo tutti — che non va confuso con il proselitismo. Noi cerchiamo di affrontare la realtà dell’Amazzonia con questo cuore pastorale, con occhi di discepoli e di missionari, perché quello che ci preme è l’annuncio del Signore. E inoltre ci avviciniamo ai popoli amazzonici in punta di piedi, rispettando la loro storia, le loro culture, il loro stile del buon vivere nel senso etimologico della parola, non nel senso sociale che spesso attribuiamo loro, perché i popoli hanno una propria identità, tutti i popoli hanno una loro saggezza, una consapevolezza di sé, i popoli hanno un modo di sentire, un modo di vedere la realtà, una storia, un’ermeneutica e tendono a essere protagonisti della loro storia con queste cose, con queste qualità. E noi ci avviciniamo estranei a colonizzazioni ideologiche che distruggono o riducono le specificità dei popoli. Le colonizzazioni ideologiche oggi sono molto diffuse. E ci avviciniamo senza ansia imprenditoriale di proporre loro programmi preconfezionati, di “disciplinare” i popoli amazzonici, di disciplinare la loro storia, la loro cultura; ossia quest’ansia di “addomesticare” i popoli originari. Quando la Chiesa si è dimenticata di questo, cioè di come deve avvicinarsi a un popolo, non si è inculturata; è arrivata addirittura a disprezzare certi popoli. E quanti fallimenti di cui oggi ci rammarichiamo. Pensiamo a De Nobile in India, a Ricci in Cina e tanti altri. Il centralismo “omogeneizzante” e “omogeneizzatore” non ha lasciato emergere l’autenticità della cultura dei popoli.

Le ideologie sono un’arma pericolosa, abbiamo sempre la tendenza ad aggrapparci a un’ideologia per interpretare un popolo. Le ideologie sono riduttive e ci portano all’esagerazione nella nostra pretesa di comprendere intellettualmente, ma senza accettare, comprendere senza ammirare, comprendere senza assimilare. E allora si coglie la realtà in categorie, e le più comuni sono le categorie degli “-ismi”. Allora, quando dobbiamo avvicinarci alla realtà di qualche popolo originario, parliamo di indigenismi, e quando vogliamo dare loro qualche via di uscita per una vita migliore, non glielo chiediamo, parliamo di sviluppismo. Questi "ismi" riformulano la vita a partire dal laboratorio illuminato e illuminista.

Sono slogan che si stanno radicando e programmano l’avvicinamento ai popoli originari. Nel nostro paese, uno slogan: “civiltà e barbarie” è servito a dividere, ad annientare, e ha raggiunto il suo apice verso la fine degli anni Ottanta, ad annientare la maggior parte dei popoli originari, perché erano “barbarie” e la “civiltà” proveniva da un’altra parte. È il disprezzo dei popoli, — e prendo l’esperienza della mia terra, questo “civiltà e barbarie” che è servito ad annientare popoli, continua ancora oggi nella mia patria, con parole offensive, e allora si parla di civiltà di secondo livello, quelli che vengono dalla barbarie; e oggi sono i “bolitas, los paraguayanos, los paraguas, los cabecitas negras”, sempre questo allontanarci dalla realtà di un popolo qualificandolo e mettendo distanza. Questa è l’esperienza del mio paese.

E poi il disprezzo. Ieri mi è dispiaciuto molto sentire qui dentro un commento beffardo su quell’uomo pio che portava le offerte con le piume in testa. Ditemi: che differenza c’è tra il portare piume in testa e il “tricorno” che usano alcuni ufficiali dei nostri dicasteri? Allora corriamo il rischio di proporre misure semplicemente pragmatiche, quando al contrario ci viene richiesta una contemplazione dei popoli, una capacità di ammirazione, che facciano pensare in modo paradigmatico. Se qualcuno viene con intenzioni pragmatiche, che reciti l’“io peccatore”, che si converta e apra il cuore verso una prospettiva paradigmatica che nasce dalla realtà dei popoli.

Non siamo venuti qui per inventare programmi di sviluppo sociale o di custodia di culture, di tipo museale, o di azioni pastorali con lo stesso stile non contemplativo con cui si stanno portando avanti le azioni di segno opposto: deforestazione, uniformazione, sfruttamento. Fanno anche programmi che non rispettano la poesia — mi permetto di dirlo — , la realtà dei popoli che è sovrana. Dobbiamo anche guardarci dalla mondanità nel modo di esigere punti di vista, cambiamenti nell’organizzazione. La mondanità si infiltra sempre e ci fa allontanare dalla poesia dei popoli.

Siamo venuti per contemplare, per comprendere, per servire i popoli. E lo facciamo percorrendo un cammino sinodale, lo facciamo in sinodo, non in tavole rotonde, non in conferenze e ulteriori discussioni: lo facciamo in sinodo, perché un sinodo non è un parlamento, non è un parlatorio, non è dimostrare chi ha più potere sui media e chi ha più potere nella rete, per imporre qualsiasi idea o qualsiasi piano. Questo configurerebbe una Chiesa congregazionalista, se intendiamo cercare per mezzo di sondaggi chi ha la maggioranza. O una Chiesa sensazionalista così lontana, così distante dalla nostra Santa Madre la Chiesa cattolica, o come amava dire Sant’Ignazio: «la nostra Santa Madre la Chiesa gerarchica». Sinodo è camminare insieme sotto l’ispirazione e la guida dello Spirito Santo. Lo Spirito Santo è l’attore principale del sinodo. Per favore non lo scacciamo dalla sala. Sono state fatte consultazioni, si è discusso nelle Conferenze episcopali, nel Consiglio pre-sinodale, è stato elaborato l’Instrumentum Laboris che, come sapete, è un testo-martire, destinato ad essere distrutto, perché è punto di partenza per quello che lo Spirito farà in noi. E ora camminiamo sotto la guida dello Spirito Santo. Ora dobbiamo consentire allo Spirito Santo di esprimersi in questa assemblea, di esprimersi tra noi, di esprimersi con noi, attraverso di noi, di esprimersi “nonostante” noi, nonostante le nostre resistenze, che è normale che ci siano, perché la vita del cristiano è così.

Quindi, quale sarà il nostro lavoro, qui, per assicurare che questa presenza dello Spirito Santo sia feconda? Prima di tutto, pregare. Fratelli e sorelle, vi chiedo di pregare, molto. Riflettere, dialogare, ascoltare con umiltà, sapendo che io non so tutto. E parlare con coraggio, con parresìa, anche se mi vergognerò a farlo, dire quello che sento, discernere, e tutto questo qui dentro, custodendo la fraternità che deve esistere qui dentro, per favorire questo atteggiamento di riflessione, preghiera, discernimento, di ascoltare con umiltà e parlare con coraggio. Dopo quattro interventi avremo quattro minuti di silenzio. Qualcuno ha detto: «è pericoloso, Padre, perché si addormenteranno». Nell’esperienza del Sinodo sui giovani, dove abbiamo fatto la stessa cosa, è accaduto invece il contrario: tendevano ad addormentarsi durante gli interventi — almeno, durante alcuni — e si risvegliavano durante il silenzio.

Infine, stare nel sinodo significa incoraggiarsi ad entrare in un processo. Non è occupare uno spazio all’interno della sala. Entrare in un processo. E i processi ecclesiali hanno una necessità: devono essere protetti, curati come un bambino, accompagnati all’inizio, curati con delicatezza. Hanno bisogno del calore della comunità; hanno bisogno del calore della Madre Chiesa. È così che un processo ecclesiale cresce. Per questo l’atteggiamento di rispetto, di curare il clima fraterno, l’aria di intimità è importante. Si tratta di non riferire tutto, così come viene, fuori. Ma non si tratta rispetto a coloro che dobbiamo informare di un segreto più proprio delle logge che della comunità ecclesiale; ma di delicatezza e di prudenza nella comunicazione che faremo con l’esterno. E questa necessità di comunicare fuori a tanta gente che vuole sapere, a tanti nostri fratelli, giornalisti, che hanno la vocazione di servire perché si sappia, e per aiutarli in questo sono previsti servizi stampa, briefing etc.

Ma un processo come quello di un sinodo si può rovinare un po’ se io, quando esco dalla sala, dico quello che penso, dico la mia. E allora ci sarà quella caratteristica che si è vista in alcuni sinodi: del “sinodo di dentro” e del “sinodo di fuori”. Il sinodo di dentro che segue un cammino di Madre Chiesa, di attenzione ai processi, e il sinodo di fuori che, per una informazione data con leggerezza, data con imprudenza, porta chi ha il dovere di informare a equivoci. Quindi, grazie per quello che state facendo, grazie perché pregate gli uni per gli altri e coraggio. E, per favore, non perdiamo il senso dell’umorismo. Grazie.

PAPA FRANCESCO

ANGELUS

Piazza San Pietro
Domenica, 6 ottobre 2019

[Multimedia]


 

Cari fratelli e sorelle, buongiorno!

L’odierna pagina evangelica (cfr Lc 17,5-10) presenta il tema della fede, introdotto dalla domanda dei discepoli: «Accresci in noi la fede!» (v. 6). Una bella preghiera, che noi dovremmo pregare tanto durante la giornata: “Signore, accresci in me la fede!”. Gesù risponde con due immagini: il granellino di senape e il servo disponibile. «Se aveste fede quanto un granello di senape, potreste dire a questo gelso: “Sradicati e vai a piantarti nel mare”, ed esso vi obbedirebbe» (v. 6). Il gelso è un albero robusto, ben radicato nella terra e resistente ai venti. Gesù, dunque, vuole far capire che la fede, anche se piccola, può avere la forza di sradicare persino un gelso. E poi di trapiantarlo nel mare, che è una cosa ancora più improbabile: ma nulla è impossibile a chi ha fede, perché non si affida alle proprie forze, ma a Dio, che può tutto.

La fede paragonabile al granello di senape è una fede che non è superba e sicura di sé; non fa finta di essere quella di un grande credente facendo a volte delle figuracce! È una fede che nella sua umiltà sente un grande bisogno di Dio e nella piccolezza si abbandona con piena fiducia a Lui. È la fede che ci dà la capacità di guardare con speranza le vicende alterne della vita, che ci aiuta ad accettare anche le sconfitte, le sofferenze, nella consapevolezza che il male non ha mai, non avrà mai, l’ultima parola.

Come possiamo capire se abbiamo veramente fede, cioè se la nostra fede, pur minuscola, è genuina, pura, schietta? Ce lo spiega Gesù indicando qual è la misura della fede: il servizio. E lo fa con una parabola che al primo impatto risulta un po’ sconcertante, perché presenta la figura di un padrone prepotente e indifferente. Ma proprio questo modo di fare del padrone fa risaltare quello che è il vero centro della parabola, cioè l’atteggiamento di disponibilità del servo. Gesù vuole dire che così è l’uomo di fede nei confronti di Dio: si rimette completamente alla sua volontà, senza calcoli o pretese.

Questo atteggiamento verso Dio si riflette anche nel modo di comportarsi in comunità: si riflette nella gioia di essere al servizio gli uni degli altri, trovando già in questo la propria ricompensa e non nei riconoscimenti e nei guadagni che ne possono derivare. È ciò che insegna Gesù alla fine di questo racconto: «Quando avrete fatto tutto quello che vi è stato ordinato, dite: “Siamo servi inutili. Abbiamo fatto quanto dovevamo fare”» (v. 10).

Servi inutili, cioè senza pretese di essere ringraziati, senza rivendicazioni. “Siamo servi inutili” è un’espressione di umiltà, disponibilità che tanto fa bene alla Chiesa e richiama l’atteggiamento giusto per operare in essa: il servizio umile, di cui ci ha dato l’esempio Gesù, lavando i piedi ai discepoli (cfr Gv 13,3-17).

La Vergine Maria, donna di fede, ci aiuti ad andare su questa strada. Ci rivolgiamo a lei alla vigilia della festa della Madonna del Rosario, in comunione con i fedeli radunati a Pompei per la tradizionale Supplica.


Dopo l'Angelus

Cari fratelli e sorelle!

Si è da poco conclusa, nella Basilica di San Pietro, la celebrazione eucaristica con la quale abbiamo dato inizio alla Assemblea Speciale del Sinodo dei Vescovi per la Regione Panamazzonica. Per tre settimane i Padri sinodali, riuniti intorno al Successore di Pietro, rifletteranno sulla missione della Chiesa in Amazzonia, sull’evangelizzazione e sulla promozione di una ecologia integrale. Vi chiedo di accompagnare con la preghiera questo evento ecclesiale, affinché sia vissuto nella comunione fraterna e nella docilità allo Spirito Santo, che sempre mostra le vie per la testimonianza del Vangelo.

Ringrazio tutti voi pellegrini che siete venuti numerosi dall’Italia e da tante parti del mondo. Saluto i fedeli di Heidelberg, Germania, e di Rozlazino, Polonia; gli studenti di Dillingen, in Germania pure, e quelli dell’Istituto Sant’Alfonso di Bella Vista, Argentina.

Saluto il gruppo di Fara Vicentino e Zugliano, le famiglie dell’Alta Val Tidone, i pellegrini dei Castelli Romani che hanno fatto una marcia per la pace e quelli di Camisano Vicentino giunti lungo la Via Francigena per una iniziativa di solidarietà.

A tutti auguro una buona domenica. E, per favore, non dimenticatevi di pregare per me. Buon pranzo e arrivederci!


          

Il S. Padre apre il Sinodo a S. Pietro con una processione sacrilega?

 Cache   



Angensir afferma che era  "una canoa con tutti i simboli e i prodotti tipici della regione panamazzonica".
Noi ignoranti pelagiani abbiamo visto una processione (guardare soprattutto  i primi 15\20 minuti del video e la foto sopra) con il Papa con una donna seminuda su una piroga: dea pagana? Madre Terra? Gaia?  (Che è lo stesso idolo che era stato posto al centro dei riti tribali nei giardini vaticani) 
La donna nuda è un prodotto tipico dell'Amazzonia?
Non lo sappiamo e speriamo di sbagliare, ma se fosse una dea pagana  sarebbe un atto sacrilego che forse necessiterebbe - come dicono alcuni amici - di un rito di riconsacrazione della basilica di S. Pietro.
In dubio pro pontifice, ma c'è un limite.
In ogni caso una grottesca parodia, salva reverentia.
Ci mancava però Greta come chierichetta.
Siamo sull'orlo dell'abisso?
Luigi

Brasileiros que cruzam Américas de moto enfrentam ameaças para entrar no Equador

 Cache   

Rodolfo de Medeiros e Claudinei Batista saíram dos EUA em 10 de setembro e pretendem cruzar 14 países até chegar ao Brasil. Eles foram abordados quando tentavam cruzar fronteira entre Colômbia e Equador, e só conseguiram atravessar à noite, por atalho no meio do mato. Rodolfo de Medeiros e Claudinei Batista, durante trecho da viagem pelas Américas Rodolfo de Medeiros/Arquivo pessoal Dois brasileiros que saíram dos EUA em uma aventura de moto rumo ao Brasil, passando por 14 países, enfrentaram ameaças para conseguir entrar no Equador nesta segunda-feira (7). Ao tentar atravessar a fronteira com a Colômbia, foram abordados por um grupo que participava de protestos contra o governo e tiveram que fugir, se abrigando em um posto do exército. Eles só conseguiram chegar ao país à noite e cruzando um caminho no meio do mato, guiados por um morador da região. “Fizemos o processo de migração no Equador, mas nem conseguimos entrar. Logo em seguida apareceu uma caminhonete cheia de uns caras armados com uns ferros, tentando bater nas motos. Conseguimos escapar por pouco, entramos em uma guarita do exército e demos um tempo ali até abaixar os ânimos. Ficamos na aduana, a Colômbia fechou a fronteira e ficamos horas esperando para seguir viagem”, explica Claudinei Batista, de 42 anos, sobre a primeira tentativa. A moto de Claudinei Batista, no posto do exército na fronteira entre Colômbia e Equador, na segunda-feira (7) Rodolfo de Medeiros/Arquivo pessoal Ao lado do amigo Rodolfo de Medeiros, ele saiu de Miami, nos Estados Unidos, no dia 10 de setembro, com a previsão de chegar a Imbituba, em Santa Catarina, onde moram, cerca de 50 dias depois. Ele conta que os dois já passaram por México, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicarágua, Costa Rica, Panamá e Colômbia, e só agora, ao tentar ingressar no Equador, enfrentaram dificuldades. “Antes de chegar na fronteira já estávamos com pouca gasolina e os postos já não tinham mais combustível. A gente conseguiu porque um cara arranjou com alguém um galão, alguém que tinha estocado em casa. Pagamos caríssimo (cerca de R$ 70) e mesmo assim foram só três litros”, diz. Claudinei e Rodolfo conseguiram comprar apenas um galão de gasolina na Colômbia, antes de cruzar a fronteira com o Equador Rodolfo de Medeiros/Arquivo pessoal Voltar para a Colômbia, segundo ele, não parecia uma boa opção. “A intenção é ir para a frente, a gente não pode voltar. Não é que não pode, mas o interessante é seguir viagem”, afirma. Ele lembra ainda que a cidade colombiana mais próxima também não oferecia muita estrutura para permanecerem. Seguindo indicações dos militares, a dupla decidiu esperar anoitecer para tentar um caminho alternativo para cruzar a fronteira, mais “escondido”. Ainda assim, enfrentaram novas ameaças. Claudinei Batista, durante trecho da viagem pelas Américas Rodolfo de Medeiros/Arquivo pessoal “Derrubaram árvores para bloquear o caminho, interditaram tudo. Quando tentamos passar, ameaçaram bater nas rodas das motos com vergalhões e eu gritei ‘Brasil, Brasil’, expliquei nossa viagem, mas eles responderam ‘regressa, regressa’, não teve conversa, tivemos que voltar”, conta Batista. O problema é que, desta vez, o posto da fronteira estava fechado e, já do lado equatoriano, eles não tinham mais onde ficar. A salvação veio na forma de um morador da região que conhece todos os atalhos. A moto de Rodolfo de Medeiros, durante trecho da viagem pelas Américas Rodolfo de Medeiros/Arquivo pessoal “Um cara que mora ali perto tem uma motinho, pagamos 35 mil pesos (uns R$ 50) e ele nos guiou pelo meio do mato, foi um caminho de mais ou menos uma hora, e conseguimos finalmente chegar a uma cidade, Nueva Loja. Achamos um hotel para passar a noite e vamos ver se amanhã cedinho conseguimos achar mais gasolina e partir para chegar ao Peru”, conclui, agora mais tranquilo.

Drodzy Bracia i Siostry, dzień dobry!

Dzisiejsza Ewangelia (Łk 17, 5-10) przedstawia kwestię wiary, wprowadzoną przez prośbę uczniów: „Dodaj nam wiary” (w. 6). Jezus odpowiada, posługując się dwoma obrazami – ziarnka gorczycy i dyspozycyjnego sługi. „Gdybyście mieli wiarę jak ziarnko gorczycy, powiedzielibyście tej morwie: 'Wyrwij się z korzeniem i przesadź się w morze', a byłaby wam posłuszna” (w. 6). Morwa jest mocnym drzewem, dobrze zakorzenionym w ziemi i odpornym na wiatry. Jezus zatem chce dać do zrozumienia, że wiara, choćby była mała, może mieć moc zdolną wykorzenić nawet morwę; a także przesadzić ją do morza, co jest rzeczą jeszcze bardziej nieprawdopodobną; jednak dla człowieka mającego wiarę nie ma nic niemożliwego, ponieważ nie polega on na własnych siłach, ale na Bogu, który wszystko może.

Wiara porównywalna do ziarnka gorczycy to wiara, która nie jest wyniosła i pewna siebie, ale która w swojej pokorze odczuwa wielką potrzebę Boga i w swej małości zawierza się Jemu z pełną ufnością. Jest to wiara, która nas uzdalnia do patrzenia z nadzieją na zmienne koleje życia, która nam pomaga zaakceptować także porażki i cierpienia, ze świadomością, że zło nigdy nie ma ostatniego słowa.

W jaki sposób możemy zrozumieć, czy rzeczywiście mamy wiarę, to znaczy – czy nasza wiara, choć bardzo nikła, jest autentyczna, czysta i szczera? Wyjaśnia nam to Jezus, wskazując, co jest miarą wiary – służba. Czyni to za pomocą  przypowieści, która w pierwszej chwili wydaje się trochę bulwersująca, ponieważ przedstawia postać pana władczego i obojętnego, nie mającego litości dla swojego sługi, który wraca zmęczony z pola; nakazuje mu od razu przygotować dla niego posiłek, a dopiero potem on także będzie mógł odpocząć i zjeść. Jednak właśnie ten sposób postępowania pana uwydatnia prawdziwą istotę przypowieści, a mianowicie postawę dyspozycyjności sługi. Jezus chce powiedzieć, że taki jest człowiek wiary w stosunku do Boga – całkowicie zdaje się na Jego wolę, bez rachub czy roszczeń.

Taka postawa względem Boga odzwierciedla się także w sposobie zachowania się we wspólnocie – odzwierciedla się w radości ze służenia jedni drugim, znajdując już w tym swoją rekompensatę, a nie w uznaniach i zyskach, jakie mogą z tego wynikać. O tym właśnie poucza Jezus na końcu tego opowiadania: „Gdy uczynicie wszystko, co wam polecono, mówcie: 'Słudzy nieużyteczni jesteśmy, wykonaliśmy to, co powinniśmy wykonać'” (w. 10).

Słudzy nieużyteczni, czyli nie domagający się, by nam dziękowano, nie wysuwający roszczeń. „Słudzy nieużytecznie jesteśmy” – to wyraz pokory i dyspozycyjności, który tak dobrze robi Kościołowi i przypomina o właściwej postawie, z jaką należy w nim działać – to pokorna służba, której przykład dał nam Jezus, obmywając nogi uczniom (por. J 13, 3-17).

Oby Maryja Dziewica, która wielbiła Pana za to, że „wejrzał na uniżenie Służebnicy swojej” (Łk 1, 48), pomagała nam żyć wiarą w naszych wspólnotach w stylu pokornej i troskliwej służby.


Po modlitwie Papież powiedział:             

Drodzy bracia i siostry, przed chwilą zakończyła się Bazylice św. Piotra Liturgia Eucharystyczna, którą zapoczątkowaliśmy Specjalne Zgromadzenie Synodu Biskupów poświęcone Regionowi Panamazońskiemu. Przez trzy tygodnie ojcowie synodalni, zgromadzeni wokół Następcy Piotra, będą debatować nad misją Kościoła w Amazonii, nad ewangelizacją i nad propagowaniem ekologii integralnej. Proszę was, abyście towarzyszyli modlitwą temu ważnemu wydarzeniu kościelnemu, aby było przeżywane w braterskiej jedności i w posłuszeństwie Duchowi Świętemu, który zawsze pokazuje drogi dawania świadectwa Ewangelii.

Dziękuję wam wszystkim, pielgrzymom, którzy przybyliście licznie z Włoch i z różnych części świata.

Prénom Jacob/ Dan ou Gabriel

Prénom Jacob/ Dan ou Gabriel panama24 jeu 03/10/2019 - 16:10

Bonjour, 

 

Nous hésitons beaucoup entre les prénoms Jacob, Dan et Gabriel.

Nous préférons le prénom Dan, mais il parait que ce serait un prénom à éviter car il fait référence au jugement et à la rigueur.

Pouvez vous me conseiller par rapport à ces 3 prénoms par rapport aux midots qu'ils peuvent apporter à notre futur enfant sdv .

 

Cordialement 

 

ils sont tous des très nom bibliques et tous des bon noms.

Casser le jeune de kippour panama24 jeu 03/10/2019 - 16:12

Bonjour, 

 

Je suis enceinte de 5 mois et je peux jeuner à Kippour, le médecin m'a tout de même dit de ne pas faire d'héroïsme et que si je me sentais mal il fallait que je mange. Si cela doit arriver comment dois je procéder ? 

Merci pour votre réponse

Cordialement, 

votre médecin à raison.

Si vous vous sentez mal il faut manger

il faut manger par petites quantités,

30 gramme de nourriture toutes les 6 à è minutes 

et une gorgée toutes les 3-4 secondes

Bonne santé
