ስለ ፀጉር ጤንነት እና ተዛማች ጉዳዮች

PlanetEthiopia.com formerly known as DavoxSpace.com was founded in November 2007 for all Ethiopians and Ethiopia friends, regardless their political, religious or social views. We are a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political Ethiopian online multimedia entertainment website based in Germany, Europe. 

PlanetEthiopia.com is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and yet non-profit making Ethiopian popular videos, music, and multimedia entertainment website, founded in February 2008 to reach all Ethiopians and Ethiopia friends worldwide who miss being in Ethiopia.

Our purposely informal, not modern, typical Ethiopian website design has been favored as the best comforting entertainment website design by many Ethiopian visitors worldwide. Every content of design on our website, including the Ethiopian made players, is carefully studied and tested, so it was not a coincidental creation. That's why it got a very positive psychological impact for homesick diaspora Ethiopians looking for a substitute to comfort their yearning. 

Many of our visitors frequently ask regarding our audio music collections:

Why do we not add every song? The answer is simple:

PlanetEthiopia.com does not do mass uploads because we value Ethiopian art, whether it is music or film, of its quality but not of its quantity, so we carefully review and select the medias before we post them.

Why we give away the sophisticatedly created virtual gifts instead of selling them?

The giveaways are just “thank you gifts” for our loyal visitors, criticizers, feedback givers, who help us improve our website. The gifts serve also as promotion and advertising strategy for our website. 

Enjoy your stay!

I did open a position in VEGBX (Vanguard Emerging Market Bond Admiral Shares), Vanguard's active EM bond fund, when it went live last December.



Despite the fact that emerging market equities have tanked over that period, VEGBX has not. It is actually my best-performing bond fund over that period. (That is not saying much.)



(VEGBX is not connected in any way to VWOB/VGAVX, Vanguard's EM bond index funds. VEGBX is an active mutual fund. It has accumulated about $100 MM in assets.)



[Snip...]


VWOB and VEGBX certainly approach Emerging Markets in different ways, and I think cap-weighted indexing may be problematic when it comes to EM bonds. VWOB is of course a "Government" index, but there are govt.-owned corporations issuing bonds which are also included in it. I suppose VWOB would fall under "USD sovereign" in Nisi's graphic above, contrary to VEGBX. Anyhow, here's a look at their holdings as posted in their respective Vanguard profile pages. Of course there's that elephant in the room - maybe call it a panda:

          RAIA WA SYRIA,SUDAN KUSINI WAKAMATWA JNIA WAKISAFIRISHA MAMILIONI YA FEDHA      Cache   Translate Page      








Kamishna Msaidizi na Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa akinyanyua juu moja ya bunda la Dola za Kimarekani zilizokamatwa leo kwenye Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), zikisafirisha isivyo halali na raia wa Sudan Kusini Bi. Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed na Bw. Mohamed Belal, raia wa Syria.
Jumla ya Dola za Kimarekani 70,000 sawa na Tsh. milioni 156 za Kitanzania zikiwa zimekamatwa leo kwenye Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), zikisafirishwa na Raia wawili wa Syria Bw. Mohamed Belal na Bi. Nada Zaelnoo Ahamed raia wa Sudan Kusini kwa kutofuata taratibu.
Bi.Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed (38) Raia wa Sudan Kusini (katikati mwenye ushungi) akiwa mbele ya waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), baada ya kukamatwa na dola 60,000 za Kimarekani na Paundi 3410 za Sudan.

Raia wa Syria, Bw. Mohamed Belal (31) mwenye fulana nyeupe akiwa mbele ya waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), baada ya kukamatwa na dola 10,000 za Kimarekani, ambazo hakuzitolea taarifa kwa Maafisa wa Forodha wa kiwanjani hapo.
Mkurugenzi wa Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), Bw. Paul Rwegasha (kushoto) akimsikiliza Kamishna Msaidizi wa Polisi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa (aliyesimama) alipokuwa akitoa maelezo kwa waandishi wa habari leo ya kukamatwa kwa Raia wawili wa Sudan Kusini na Syria waliokuwa wakisafirikisha fedha taslim milioni 156 bila kufuata sharia.
Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Viwanja vya Ndege Tanzania (TAA), Bw. Richard Mayongela (wa pili kulia) akisisitiza jambo kwenye mkutano na waandishi wa habari (hawapo pichani) uliofanyika kwenye ukumbi wa Mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), wakati walipokamatwa Raia wawili wa Syria na Sudan Kusini wakisafirisha mamilioni ya fedha bila kufuata taratibu.


ABIRIA wawili Raia wa Sudan Kusini na Syria leo wamekamatwa Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA) wakisafirisha fedha taslim dola 70 za Kimarekani sawa na shilingi milioni 156 za Kitanzania na paundi 3410 za Sudan bila kufuata taratibu.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la JNIA, Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi, Kamishna Msaidizi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa alimtaja Raia wa Sudan Kusini Bi. Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed (38) mwenye hati ya kusafiria namba P01563534 amekamatwa saa 10:00 jioni akiwa eneo la ukaguzi wakati akiingia ndani tayari kusafiri kwa ndege ya Shirika la Ndege la Kenya (KQ 485) akielekea Nairobi.

Hatahivyo, Afande Mwakalukwa amesema abiria huyo mbali na fedha hizo za Kimarekani pia amekamatwa na paundi za Sudan 3410, ambazo zote kwa pamoja alishindwa kutoa taarifa ya fedha alizokutwa nazo kwa mujibu wa sheria ya utakatishaji fedha ya mwaka 2006 iliyofanyiwa marekebisho mwaka 2012.

Pia alimtaja Bw. Mohamed Belal (31), Raia wa Syria mwenye hati ya kusafiria namba 003-16L096876 aliyekuwa akisafiri kwa ndege ya Shirika la ndege la Ethiopia (ET 864) kuelekea Syria kupitia Addis Ababa amekamatwa na dola za kimarekani 10,000 sawa na Tsh. milioni 20 za Kitanzania, ambazo naye alishindwa kuzitolea taarifa. “Watuhumiwa wote wawili wamezuiwa na hawawezi kuendelea na safari zao kwa ajili ya uchunguzi zaidi na hatua za kisheria zilizopo,” amesema Afande Mwakalukwa.

Naye Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Viwanja vya Ndege Tanzania (TAA), Bw. Richard Mayongela amewapongeza maafisa usalama wa JNIA kwa kufanya kazi kwa weledi na uadilifu pamoja na kushirikiana na vyombo vingine vya ulinzi na usalama katika kuhakikisha wasafiri, wadau na maeneo yote ya viwanja vya ndege yanabaki salama na vitendo vya kiuhalifu havina nafasi katika viwanja hivyo. Bw. Mayongela amesema pamoja na watumishi hao kufanya kazi katika wakati mgumu kutokana na baadhi ya abiria kuwa watata kila wanapotaka kutekeleza wajibu wao kwa mujibu wa sheria na kanuni.

Ametoa wito kwa wadau, wasafiri na wafanyakazi wote kushirikiana na maafisa usalama, vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama katika kutoa taarifa stahiki ili vitendo vya kiuhalifu kama hivi visipate nafasi kwenye viwanja vya ndege kwani ndio vinatoa taswira ya nchi. “Viwanja vya ndege visitumike kama uchochoro wa kupitisha nyara za serikali, dawa za kulevyia, fedha haramu au matukio yeyote yanayoashiria uvunjifu wa Amani au uvunjaji wa sheria za nchi,”

Pia aliongeza “Niombe wananchi na vyombo vya usalama kufanya kazi kwa weledi kwa sababu wasipofanyakazi kwa weledi matukio kama haya yangeweza kupata nafasi na kuharibu taswira ya nchi, kwa ujumla mwisho wa siku inaharibika, kwani nia yetu na lengo letu ni zuri ni kuhakikisha hatutumiki kwa namna moja au nyingine kufadhili au kuwezesha shughuli za kiuhalifu zifanyike katika maeneo yetu”.

Amesema na hii ni moja ya ushahidi maafisa usalama wanapata mafunzo na kujengewa uwezo wa kuwa na vifaa vya kisasa kwani vitu mbalimbali vimekuwa vikigundulika kupitia mashine za ukaguzi, na pia kushirikiana na vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama, hivyo ametoa wito watu wasidhubutu tena kujaribu kwa namna yeyote ile akidhani viwanja vya ndege wamelala, kwani ulinzi na usalama unaendelea kuimarika.

Kwa upande wake Meneja wa Forodha wa Kituo cha JNIA, Bw. Njaule Mdendu amesema abiria wote wanaosafiri au kuwasili endapo wanakiasi kikubwa cha fedha za kigeni kuanzia dola 10,000 za Kimarekani sawa na Milioni 10 za Kitanzania anapaswa kutoa taarifa Idara ya Forodha kwa kuwa ni matakwa ya sheria ya mwaka 2006 iliyofanyiwa marekebisho mwaka 2012 na kanuni za mwaka 2016, na asipofanya hivyo ni kosa la jinai

Bw. Mdendu amesema abiria wanapaswa kuchukua fomu maalum akieleza utambulisho wake na kiasi cha fedha anachoingia nacho au kutoka nacho, na fomu atazipata kwenye ofisi zote za forodha za mipakani kwenye viwanja vya ndege, mipaka ya ardhi na majini endapo atakuwa akitumia usafiri wa barabara au majini.

“Hizi fomu pia zipo kwenye tovuti ya Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania na akishajaza anawasilisha ofisi za Forodha na kiasi cha fedha anachosafiri au kuwasili nacho na afisa atazihakiki na akiridhika ataruhusu aendelee na safari yake, na napenda kuwatoa hofu watu kuwa fedha zao hawanyang’anyi baada ya kutoa taarifa na ataondoka nayo, lakini endapo usipotoa taarifa ni kosa na inaadhabu yake kulingana na kiasi cha fedha ulichokutwa nacho, hivyo tuwaombe abiria kutimiza matakwa ya kisheria, kwani watu wamekuwa wakifanya makosa bila kujua sheria,” amesema.

          The Bible : Genesis Chapters 1 - 11 ~ Primeval History      Cache   Translate Page      
Initially I was going to use either my New King James or ESV translation for this read-along, but I recently acquired an Orthodox study bible so I thought it might be interesting to read it.  There are extra books included in the Old Testament accepted by the Orthodox church that I've always wanted to read and what better time than this read-along?  So here we go ........

The name Pentateuch is used to refer to the first five books of the old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  A Greek word meaning “five scrolls”, it was popularized during the first century, however the Hebrew speaking Jewish people called these five books the Torah or “instruction”.  It is best read as a five-book volume.
Genesis begins with the breaking of the relationship between God and man and continues with the restoration of it through his convenant with Abraham.
The author of Genesis is unknown.  There is no evidence to connect anyone to it, however as the other books of the Torah are connected to Moses and most of biblical literature treats the Torah as a unit, a sensible guess would label Moses as the author, although at least some of the material would have existed before his time.

Genesis 1-11 (Primeval History)
Chapter 1
……. In the beginning God made heaven and earth.
Chapter 1 takes us from the beginning of creation to the end of the sixth day.
In the beginning, the earth was “invisible and unfinished”. …
  • Day 1:  God made light and divided it from the darkness.
  • Day 2:  God divided the waters from the “firmament” and made Heaven
  • Day 3:  God gathered the waters together and called the waters, “Sea” and the land, “Earth”  The Earth bore grasses and (fruit) trees each according to their seed.
  • Day 4:  God made the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night, dividing light from darkness, as well as signs for seasons, days and years.
  • Day 5:  God made creatures of the sea and birds of the air.
  • Day 6:  God had the Earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind. He made man in His image, giving him dominion over living things, then he created woman.  Everything the plants and trees produce are food for man and the animals.

The Garden of Eden (copy of Jan Brueghel 1661)

Chapter 2
  • Day 7:  God rested, and blessed this day, sanctifying it.

There had been no rain and when God made Man; a huge fountain came out of the Earth, watering it and God made man from the dust.
God made a garden (The Garden of Eden) where every beautiful tree grew including the tree of “learning the knowledge of good and evil”.  A river with four heads flowed through the garden, Pishon circling the land of Havilah, Gihon which circles Ethiopia, the Tigris near the Assyrians and the Euphrates.  
God placed man in the garden, commanding him not to eat of the tree of good and evil, then decided,
“It is not good for man to be alone.  I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
Although God brought all the animals and birds, as none were comparable to Adam, God put him to sleep, removed a rib and turned it into “woman”.  She was “flesh of his flesh, bone of his bone” and they were one.  
They were naked and unashamed.

Adam and Eve chased out of theTerrestrial Paradise (1841)
Jean-Achille Benouville

Chapter 3
The serpent tempted the woman, promising she’d be like God if she ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  She complied and convinced Adam to eat as well, but when they heard God, they hid.  Their sin was revealed whereupon Adam blamed the woman and the woman blamed the serpent. As punishment, God declared the serpent would crawl on its belly and would have enmity with man and vice versa, women would have pains at childbirth and be subject to their husbands, and men would toil the earth for survival.  And finally the woman was named: “So Adam called his wife’s name Life, because she was the mother of all living.”  
Because God was concerned that the pair would also eat of the tree of life and live forever, he clothed them and cast them out of the garden, stationing a cherubim with a fiery sword at the door.
Rather than literally die, Adam and Eve’s (Life’s) old paradisical life died to them and they entered a new harsher one.

Cain and Abel (1542-44)

Chapter 4
Eve gives birth to a son called Cain and next, a brother, Abel is born.  Abel was a shepherd and Cain a tiller (farmer); both brothers bring sacrifices to God but while God “respected” Abel’s offering, he did not “respect” Cain’s.
“… Did you not sin, even though you brought it rightly, but did not divide it rightly?”
Cain in his anger and jealousy rose up and killed his brother.  When God asked where Abel was, Cain gives the famous response:
“I do not know.  Am I my brother’s keeper?”
However, God knows his sin and curses him from the earth which will no longer give him sustenance but He also forbids anyone to kill Cain who goes to dwell in the land of Nod, opposite Eden.
Cain has a son, Enoch, whom he names the city he builds after, then proceeds a genealogical list of Cain’s family.
Adam and Eve have another son, Seth.

Chapter 5
We have a list of the descendents of Adam, beginning with Seth.  Some live 700 or even 900 years, others in the hundreds.  The list ends with Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth.


Noah's Ark (1846)

Chapter 6
Men began to exist in great numbers on the Earth and the sons of God began to marry the daughters of men (I’m puzzled by the distinction between the two).  God was grieved at men’s wickedness on earth as “every intent of the thoughts within his heart was only evil continually.”  He planned to destroy all he had created but Noah “found grace in the presence of Lord God.”  He commanded Noah to build an ark.
“And behold, I am bringing a flood of water on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life. Whatever is on the earth shall die.  But I will establish My covenant with you: and you shall go into the ark --- you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.  From every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you …”

Chapter 7
Noah was six hundred years old when the flood came. It rained forty days and nights. Water covered the highest mountains and all mankind was blotted out.  The waters stayed for 150 days.


The Deluge (1834)
John Martin

Chapter 8
The rains ceased and God sent a wind to help the water subside.  On the seventh month and the seventeenth day the ark came to rest on Mount Ararat.  On the first day of the tenth month, the tops of the mountains could be seen.  Noah sent out a raven and a dove but neither could find a resting place. Seven days later, after being sent out, the dove returned with an olive leaf.  The waters had receeded!  Seven days later the dove returned not and Noah left the ark, building an altar to sacrifice to the Lord.  The Lord promised never again to send a flood to destroy man even though man's inclination was to do evil.

Chapter 9
God now appears to give Noah a new authority over the animals and says that “every moving thing that lives shall be food for you.” (assuming because of the flood there will not be enough vegetation and man will now have to eat meat to survive?) God makes a covenant with Noah never to destroy the earth again and sets a rainbow in the sky as a sign.  Noah becomes a husbandman and plants a vineyard but becomes drunk and naked.  Ham tells his brothers of his father’s indiscretion but Shem and Japheth cover their father without looking at him.  Noah later curses Ham and blesses his other two sons.  Noah died at 950 years of age.

The Tower of Babel (1563)
Peter Brueghel the Elder

Chapter 11
Mankind has one language and speech and decides to build a city and temple to hold themselves in unity and power, but God descends and confuses their language so they were unintelligible to each other.  He then scattered the people over the earth and the city and tower were called Babel because of it.

Now follows a geneology of Shem to Terah (most people are only living 100-300 years now), the father of Abram.  Terah also had sons named Nahor and Haran, who begot Lot.  Terah led his family out of Ur of the Chaldeans to Canaan and when they reached Haran, they dwelt there.

          Watch A-Trak Make Beats From Randomly Selected Records On Rhythm Roulette      Cache   Translate Page      

It’s now A-Trak’s turn to take a stab at Mass Appeal’s acclaimed web series, Rhythm Roulette. The series challenges producers to walk into a record store, blindfolded, and randomly pick out three albums to sample in the studio.

For this episode, the Fool’s Gold Records bossman ended up with three of the more difficult samples we’ve seen on the show. A-Trak picked out some Ethiopian funk, some blues, and another obscure record from the 70’s. The turntablist maestro gets to work immediately in the studio, expertly navigating the instrumentation on the records to pick out what he wants to work with.

Being the versatile producer that he is, A-Trak comes out with three, impressively distinct beats in the end. Check out the video for yourself below and enjoy!

          From Listener To Entrepreneur      Cache   Translate Page      
Today’s guest, joining us today on the Join Up Dots entrepreneur podcast interview is a man who last appeared on the show back in 2017  when he connected with us after being a listener for awhile. Back then he was trying to find his way to becoming the master of his own future, creating his own business, and finding clients. He wanted his own business more than anything and had several ideas as to businesses he potentially had the skills for. Well since that conversation he has started his business Cassus Media back in August 2017, and officially left his last employer in January 2018 to strike out on his own as an entrepreneur. Cassus Media is a digital marketing solutions agency, originally launched with the idea of creating marketing videos which has now expanded into full-service organic social media and pay per click management services for small to mid-size businesses. He has worked with clients from around the United States and even the world in just the short time he's been in business, most notably from Norway, Sicily, and Ethiopia. Now the entrepreneurial journey is not easy for sure, and he has gone through some very difficult challenges with his career, not least being discharged from the military abruptly after making some mistakes caused by traumatic events in his teenage years, of which he's now overcome and is thriving, and becoming recently single. He also has ploughed into the life of not knowing if his efforts will come to anything, but being excited by where he is heading, in his words "The sky is the limit in the coming years" So what was the hardest part of taking the leap and becoming his own boss? And is the true battle one with the outside world of actually within his own head? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Paul Cassarly Show Highlights During the entrepreneur podcast show we had deep hitting conversations with Paul Cassarly around subjects such as: Paul shares how he created his first business without clearly defining the needs of his customer and how to service them. We discuss why it is a bad thing to put all your eggs into one basket, and the reasons why you have to diversify your offerings. Why the coaching business is such an amazing way to create a quick business, due to the personal interaction that you can get. And lastly........ Why niche, niche, niche until you become the category of one is the easiest way for business success.
          IOC: Refugee Team to Take Part at Tokyo 2020 Olympics      Cache   Translate Page      
Refugees will take part in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday said it would form a refugee team for the second consecutive Summer Games. IOC President Thomas Bach asked members of the Olympic body at its session in Buenos Aires to support the creation of a refugee team, along the lines of the one that competed at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. The members responded with applause. "So you have created the refugee Olympic team, Tokyo 2020," Bach said. The German said the IOC had already identified a pool of more than 50 refugee athletes and it was necessary to keep the world aware of the plight of the tens of millions of refugees around the world. "There is one unfortunate reason for the creation of this team," Bach told a news conference. "This is the fact that the reasons we created the first ever team still persist. We have altogether 68.5 million refugees in this world." "Through sport we want to make a contribution to keep the world aware of this problem and this challenge and that it does not disappear from the conscience of the world, and send another signal of hope to these refugees." There were no details yet on the final size or makeup of the team but Bach said the pool of potential athletes for the team could grow more. "Last time (for Rio) we were under very high time pressure. Now we have two years. We have already taken precaution... and we have a pool of athletes in place. Already now we're supporting 51 or 52 refugee athletes who we have identified," Bach said. "This pool can still grow in the run-up to Tokyo 2020. It is too early to say how many will finally make it." The IOC unveiled its first team of refugees in an effort to raise awareness of the issue and it was one of the feel-good stories of the Rio Olympics. The 10-member team from Syria, Congo, Ethiopia and South Sudan hogged the spotlight after marching as the penultimate team before host nation Brazil in the Opening Ceremony at the Olympic stadium. The athletes took part in athletics, swimming and judo. The IOC has continued supporting these athletes, some of whom attended the IOC session in the Argentine capital. The IOC had said last year it was considering forming such a team again for the Tokyo Games and has continued to support the athletes who took part in Rio. "I am delighted that this tradition is to continue in Tokyo," said United Nations High Commissioner for refugees Filippo Grandi in a statement. "Giving these exceptional young people the opportunity to compete at the very highest levels is admirable."

          Comment on An Apology for Adolf Hitler by martsiva      Cache   Translate Page      
Why do people talk about 'Jewish blood'? There is NO such thing!! Calling Jews a race is like calling Christians a race! Jew refers to a religion - not a race. All these Jews who keep referring to themselves as a race don`t like it when it is pointed out the Ethiopians are also Jews - are they related? It has been proven that there were no gas chambers through forensics by Fred Leuchter - an expert on gas chambers. I have read that Hitler worked with Zionists who funded the German army in return for making life for Jews in Germany in order to get them to emigrate to a Jewish homeland, which they decided would be Palestine. Where else did Hitler get the money to form an army?
          10/09 Links Pt2: UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up; Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription; Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ian:

'UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up'
In Jerusalem, Mayor Nir Barkat presented a plan to remove all UNRWA operations from the capital and begin providing full municipal services to the residents of Shuafat, where UNRWA operates schools and clinics without Israeli permission.

The Jerusalem move follows a decision by the US to cut aid to UNRWA because it is an organization that perpetuates the refugee problem instead of acting to solve the issue.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Bassam Eid, a human rights activist who has been studying UNRWA's schools and institutions for years, bringing the paralyzed Palestinian Arab voices that have been struggling for years under UNRWA, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

"I have been saying for years that UNRWA has become part of the problem and not part of the solution," said Eid, "For 70 years, UNRWA has been managing the affairs of the Palestinian refugees and has not managed to reduce the problem or resolve the refugee problem within seventy years. "I am interested in continuing to manage the issue of the Palestinian refugees."

"I support Trump's decision to stop UNRWA funds," Bassem Eid said, adding that "65 percent of UNRWA funds go to salaries and the renting of buildings and offices, salaries of $25,000 a month and luxury vehicles. I want to close this organization so that its employees will be unemployed and become refugees themselves."

Eid also criticized the education provided in UNRWA schools. "I worked in several UNRWA schools in the territories and in Jordan, and children aged 9-10 want to be killed and kill Jews and to release their people. "Who taught you that?" I asked. They said that was what they were learning in schools, and I asked teachers at UNRWA schools in Jordan if children were taught to blow themselves up and be killed. They said "of course. How else will they liberate the land from the Israeli occupation? " UNRWA is aware of this, and the international community knows that all UNRWA studies are full of hate and incitement. The international community continues to inject funds because it is against Israel."

Top UNRWA official says he champions both Israel and Palestinian refugees
Just a few years ago, Peter Mulrean was defending Israel in what is arguably one of the most hostile diplomatic environments for the Jewish state.

In 2013, as the US deputy ambassador to the United Nations Humans Rights Council in Geneva, he hailed Jerusalem for its “strong commitment and track record in upholding human rights, political freedoms and civil liberties.”

Today, Mulrean is a senior official at UNRWA, the UN agency dealing with Palestinian refugees, arguably the most hated organization in Israel and one the US government recently called “irredeemably flawed.”

From his office just across from UN headquarters in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay, Mulrean promotes the agency on the world’s largest international stage.

The director of UNRWA’s Representative Office in New York decries the recent budget cuts by the US administration and passionately rejects the often-made argument that the agency perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem and stands in the way of a realistic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Human Rights Council Elections Set to Deliver Another Record-High Number of Rights-Abusing Members
The U.N. holds annual “elections” for its Human Rights Council this week and, once again, none of the five regional groups are offering any competition for the vacant seats. Instead all five are putting up “closed slates” of candidates – a practice seen as one of the main reasons rights-abusing regimes are able to secure seats.

Indeed, the absence of competitive slates makes it possible to predict, three days before the U.N. General Assembly holds the exercise in New York, that next year the 47-member HRC will have 14 members – 29.7 percent – that are graded “not free” by the veteran democracy advocacy group, Freedom House.

That’s a record high for “not free” countries on the 13-year-old council, tied only with the 2018 membership.

Failing unexpected last minute developments, the 2019 HRC membership will comprise 23 “free” countries, 10 “partly free,” and 14 “not free.”

The presence on the U.N.’s top human rights body of regimes with poor human rights records was one of the main reasons cited by the Trump administration for its decision to withdraw over the summer, following what it said were unsuccessful attempts to reform it.



Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream
Before Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer lent their academic credentials to a widely discredited 2007 book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, alleging an “Israel Lobby” that controls American foreign policy to the detriment of the U.S., conspiracy theories of this sort dwelt mostly within the fringe domain of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites, and their ilk.

These type of conspiracy theories evoked the notorious 1903 fraud, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, purporting to document a nefarious Jewish plot for global domination, manipulating economies, and fomenting war. Despite its exposure as an anti-Semitic fabrication some 20 years later, the Protocol’s bogus charges continued to serve as a staple of anti-Semitic, Nazi and ZOG (“Zionist Occupied Government”) propaganda, inciting hatred, pogroms and massacres against Jews. Hitler referred to the Protocols in his early speeches and in his autobiography, Mein Kampf. It became an integral part of his anti-Jewish ideology and Nazi propaganda. Protocols is also embraced by Holocaust deniers, by Hamas, and is a bestseller among enemies of Israel.

Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, professors of international affairs at Harvard University and University of Chicago respectively, attempted to bring new acceptance to ‘Zionist-Control-of-Government’ charges by presenting them as a scholarly study far removed from the anti-Semitic claims of the Protocols. Positioning themselves as righteous truth-tellers, Walt and Mearsheimer hastened to assure readers that the Israel lobby is “certainly not a cabal or conspiracy that ‘controls’ U.S. foreign policy” but rather “a powerful interest group, made up of both Jews and gentiles, whose acknowledged purpose is to press Israel’s case within the United States.”

Undermining this disclaimer, however, was the authors’ disturbingly vague definition of the so-called “Israel lobby” as “a loose coalition of individuals and organizations” with “unmatched” power and “the ability to manipulate the American political system” against the interests and well-being of U.S. citizens. Beyond evoking the old claims of disproportionate and undue Jewish influence, the book’s supporting “evidence” was widely dismissed by academicians, reviewers and politicians across the spectrum, who exposed its shoddy scholarship, use of falsified quotations, distortion of facts, and untrue conclusions.
Miko Peled, playing to the antisemitic crowd that adores him
I recently returned from a short vacation in Israel. Visiting Israel should be a requirement for anyone actively engaged in the fight against antisemitism. It works like receiving an antidote. Nothing places the IHRA definition of antisemitism into perspective better than witnessing first-hand the enormous gulf between the democratic reality on Israel’s streets and the non-existent demon-state that is described in anti-Israel Facebook groups. It leaves with you a lasting clarity over the absurdity of the anti-Israel arguments.

Last week Israeli state TV ran a documentary on BDS (in Hebrew). I had given them access to my archives and was interviewed by them for the show. The team who made the documentary had met with Miko Peled in Israel. It is worth viewing this short segment to see how nasty Peled is in real life:


Most people know Peled’s backstory and I have no interest in repeating what others have written before. I was in the room when he spoke about giving Holocaust denial a platform. What always interests me is the support network. Miko Peled is an angry outcast, that nobody should have heard of. Instead he is given top billing at BDS events internationally. We know anti-Zionist Jews are a fringe group, so the question can be asked – just who is in the audience?

As my research into the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign showed, when Jewish people stand up to claim there is no problem with antisemitism, half of the people in the room applauding are hard-core antisemites themselves (see case study on Jackie Walker event p91-110).

I argue that without this support network of antisemites, these fringe anti-Zionist Jews would not have an audience. By placing greater import on the antisemites than the few useful puppets they hide behind I also suggest that this is a more accurate way of looking at the problem. So when Miko Peled responded to my tweet of the video above, my natural instinct was to look at those people who were applauding him.

*It has to be said, that nobody is responsible for those that like, comment or share things they have written*. But that isn’t the point. I am not interested in individuals. Miko Peled is not responsible if one, two or five antisemites are in the audience, but when that level reaches 50% doesn’t it demand that we ask questions? Given the high levels of antisemitic thought present in his audience why is Miko Peled denying their existence?
Cary Nelson: Jasbir Puar Launches Women’s Studies on a Death Spiral
The National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) has now crossed a further line in self-discreditation by honoring Jasbir Puar’s December 2017 book The Right to Maim: Debility, Capacity, Disability, a publication that discards evidentiary standards and instead bases its accusations against the Jewish state on its author’s personal fantasies. In September 2018 the NWSA awarded The Right to Maimits Alison Piepmeier Book Prize, describing the book as a “major milestone.” It has now officially endorsed an irresponsible and discriminatory research agenda for feminist faculty and students.

My book in manuscript—Israel Denial: Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism, & the Faculty Campaign Against the Jewish State—devotes its longest chapter (30,000 words) to an analysis of Jasbir Puar’s publications. Most anti-Israel faculty publications focus on debatable propositions. Not Puar. You can debate the claim that Israel discriminates against its Arab citizens, but so long as there is evidence of racism among some Israelis you cannot wholly discredit the accusation. Puar, however, makes arguments that can actually be proven factually right or wrong. They are consistently false.

Take one example: she claims that Israel has been stunting the growth of Palestinian children. Stunting (below normal height) means children are at greater risk for illness, reduced cognitive capacity, and premature death. The WHO, UNICEF, and other groups publish statistical reports on this and other health concerns. So does the Palestinian Authority. There are scores of published academic papers on the subject. All come to the same conclusion: comparing stunting rates across the world proves it is not a major health problem in Gaza or the West Bank. The WHO standard for classifying stunting as a major health concern is 20%. Stunting in the West Bank Gaza runs at 7-10% of children aged 1-5 years. By comparison, Egypt’s rate is 19.8%. Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia include countries with dramatically higher stunting rates: India (38.4%), Ethiopia (38.4%), Zambia (40%), Pakistan (45%), Madagascar (49.2%), Eritrea (50.2%), and Burundi (57.5%). Puar cites none of this research. If Israel is stunting the growth of Palestinian children it is doing a very poor job indeed.

To publish an anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic book without factual proof Puar did not have to find the long lost publisher of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. She simply gave the manuscript to Duke University Press. There it would be judged by people within the echo-chamber of anti-Zionists who don’t care about facts. Their standard for original scholarship is “Tell us something bad about Israel we don’t already know.” Duke obviously did not do any independent fact-checking. It then added the Duke University imprimatur to a book that dishonors the University and should be withdrawn from publication. Instead, The Right to Maimwill probably earn Puar a full professorship at Rutgers. After all, distinguished scholars like Judith Butler have endorsed the book on its jacket. Credulous audiences in universities across the country applaud its arguments when Puar lectures. And now the book has a national award.
In Its Current Form, the Labor Party Threatens the Freedom and Safety of the UK’s Jews
Since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the British Labor party in 2015, his indifference to anti-Semitism within his party’s ranks, friendliness with terrorists, and hostility toward Israel and Zionists have caused mounting public concern. Daniel Johnson assesses the state of affairs:

Corbyn’s long record of support for nations and organizations that are implacably opposed to the West is unprecedented. Rightly, the public is anxious about what this might portend, were he ever to occupy Downing Street. . . . Corbyn takes cognizance only of those Jews (a vanishingly small minority) who share his loathing of Israel—not unlike the [turn-of-the-century] anti-Semitic mayor of Vienna, Karl Lueger, who notoriously quipped: “I’ll decide who is a Jew.” . . .

Jeremy Corbyn is a guilty man who protests his innocence while presiding over a purge of any Labor MP who tells the truth. . . . And for what purpose? The Corbyn case is also about politics—electoral politics. In the words of Mehdi Hasan, now the political editor of the Huffington Post and a presenter for Al Jazeera, “anti-Semitism isn’t just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it’s routine and commonplace. . . . It’s our dirty little secret.” In the five years since Hasan made his confession, anti-Semitism has become the “dirty little secret” of another community: the left wing of the Labor party. And there is a connection: the left is targeting Muslim votes. No wonder Corbyn has greeted all accusations of anti-Semitism . . . with indifference or silence.

Instead of challenging this vile prejudice and demanding that Muslim community leaders address the canker in their midst, the Labor party has quietly acquiesced. It tolerates the Corbyn camp’s toadying to anti-Semitic preachers and demagogues. How different the outcome of the Corbyn case might have been if more Muslims had denounced the Labor leader to demonstrate their revulsion at anti-Semitism. . . .
'Corbyn anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to dark times'
Britain’s Parliament hosted Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon Tuesday.

In his address, the ambassador referred to statements made by opposition leader and Labour Party chairman Jeremy Corbyn, calling him “an anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to darker periods in its history.”

The ambassador added that “in his actions and statements, Corbyn gives oxygen to incidents of racism by embracing his terrorist friends and encouraging the activities of BDS. Israel stands by the Jewish community in England.”

Corbyn and the Labour Party have faced a string of scandals involving anti-Semitism and accusations of bigotry in recent months.

The Daily Mail has published photos of the Labour leader at a cemetery in Tunisia holding a wreath near the graves of some of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists who were responsible for the massacre of the 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Days later, a picture emerged of Corbyn apparently making a salute linked to the Muslim Brotherhood organization.

That week, the Times of London published a picture of Corbyn meeting with the leader-in-exile of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization, only weeks before its members carried out an attack on a Jerusalem synagogue in which six people were murdered.
Non-Jews fight UK Labour anti-Semitism from the inside
Steeped in anti-Semitism accusations involving him and his supporters, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has made many Jewish enemies — including inside his own party.

But one of his most effective critics is not Jewish. He is a meteorology student at the University of Reading who describes himself as “just a kid with a laptop.”

Denny Taylor, 20, has used that laptop to keep a running tally of party members who have flouted Labour’s own guidelines against hate speech and report them to the party’s ethics review panel.

Horrified at the revelations about Corbyn’s ties to anti-Semites, Taylor set up Labour Against Anti-Semitism, or LAAS, in 2016 with a few dozen non-Jewish and Jewish volunteers. He was 18 and had voted the previous year for Corbyn.

It was LAAS that last month reported to Labour’s ethics panel on an old recording in which Corbyn declared that Zionists “don’t understand English irony.” The group has flagged 1,200 alleged members who it said have breached the party’s guidelines against hate speech and has a backlog of about 2,000 additional cases of people engaging in what LAAS considers anti-Semitic rhetoric. LAAS has not reported the latter yet, according to its spokesman, Euan Philipps, who also is not Jewish.
Fliers on 4 college campuses blame Jews for Kavanaugh ruckus
Fliers blaming Jews for the sexual assault allegations against newly sworn-in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were posted on two University of California campuses, Berkeley and Davis, as well as at Vassar and Marist colleges, both located in the same city in New York state.

“Every time some Anti-White, Anti-American, Anti-freedom event takes place, you look at it, and it’s Jews behind it,” the fliers discovered Monday read.

The flier shows an image of Kavanaugh surrounded by caricatures of Jewish members of the US Senate with Stars of David drawn on their foreheads, as well as the Jewish billionaire George Soros, who has been accused of funding opposition to Kavanaugh. One of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, and the attorney for two others, Michael Avenatti, also are depicted with the words “Good Goy” written on their foreheads.

The fliers say they are “Brought to you by your local Stormer book club.”

According to the ADL, the Daily Stormer Book Club chapters, or SBCs, are “small crews of young white men who follow and support Andrew Anglin and his neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer.”

Petition Denouncing Upcoming Anti-Zionist Conference at UCLA Passes 2,000 Signatures
A petition urging the University of California, Los Angeles to reconsider hosting an upcoming anti-Zionist conference surpassed 2,000 signatories on Friday, amid a continuing outcry against the event.

The online petition — launched by the campus branch of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) — says the eighth annual National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP), which was first announced in August, “is designed to instill hatred towards and intolerance while proliferating lies about Israel.”

The event marks the largest annual gathering of NSJP activists, who help promote the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel on North American university campuses — a campaign denounced by major Jewish organizations, and opposed by both UCLA and UC regents.

The conference will seek to remind students “that Zionism … can be destroyed,” according to its organizers, who define Zionism — the movement that supports the Jewish people’s right to national self-determination — as “ethnic cleansing, destruction, mass expulsion, apartheid, and death.”

These objectives have drawn criticism from the UCLA branch of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), as well as the groups Alums for Campus Fairness at UCLA and StandWithUs, all of which oppose the BDS campaign.
New York City's Islamist Grant
On August 21, the New York City Council announced $250,000 in grants made to 14 Muslim community organizations, in collaboration with the New York Immigration Coalition. Alarmingly, three of the grant recipients are linked to Islamic extremism -- the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Worse, it seems that ICNA, in particular, plans to use the money not for civic improvement but for religious proselytizing.

The grant announcement was made at ICNA's headquarters in Jamaica, Queens, after the jumu'ah prayer service. Present were the young speaker of the city council, Corey Johnson, and Councilman Daneek Miller, the sole Muslim member of the council.

Councilman Miller is no stranger to ICNA; his campaign website prominently features a photo of him speaking at the ICNA mosque.

ICNA was established in 1971, ostensibly as a "non-ethnic, non-sectarian" grassroots organization, with the aim of seeking the "establishment of the Islamic system of life as spelled out in the Qur'an."

In fact, it functions as the American arm of the Pakistani Islamist group Jamaat e-Islami (JI). Indeed, ICNA's international charity, Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD), works closely with JI in Pakistan. Worse, in 2017 HHRD openly worked with the "political" wing of the murderous terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Amazon Funnelled Cash to Salafist Org Founded by ‘Extremist’ UK-Based Saudi Scholar
Amazon has been funnelling cash to a Salafist ‘charity’ led by an Islamic scholar described as “one of the most dangerous men in Britain” by counter-extremists, a British newspaper has claimed.

The Jeff Bezos-led retail giant allowed the Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) founded by Saudi-born Haitham al-Haddad into its Amazon Smile programme, which allows customers to donate a percentage of their purchases to charity, according to a Times investigation.

Al-Haddad has been branded “dangerous” by the Quilliam counter-extremism think tank, and as “misogynistic, racist, and homophobic” by UK Government counter-extremism commissioner Sara Khan.

A series of controversial statements by the Salafist scholar — a graduate in Islamic law from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) — have been compiled by The Times, advancing a range of hardline views.

These include claims that adulterous women should be stoned to death, and that he has, in fact, received “many requests from Western women… begging me to help them to find their way to a Muslim country to be stoned to death” so they could “avoid punishment in the afterlife” — although it is not revealed whether he actually did facilitate any voluntary executions of this kind.

“It is the Islamic punishment. What does the UK government want? Do they want Muslims to change their beliefs?” he demanded.
Bennett protests to University of Michigan over Netanyahu-Hitler comparison
Education Minister Naftali Bennett sent a letter to the University of Michigan’s President Mark Schlissel, urging him to oppose anti-Israel hatred on campus after a lecturer compared Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler, claiming both are guilty of genocide.

Bennett also raised a previous case of a University of Michigan professor who would not write a letter of recommendation for a student who wanted to study abroad in Israel, a spokesperson for the minister said in a statement Tuesday.

“The time has come for you as head of the university to make a strong stand against what has clearly become a trend of vitriolic hatred against the Jewish state on your campus,” Bennett wrote to the university president.

During a compulsory lecturer, speaker Emory Douglas, part of the “Penny Stamps Speakers Series Presentation” of the Stamps School of Art & Design, displayed a slide that showed a picture of Netanyahu and Hitler with the words “Guilty Of Genocide” written across their faces.

Below the photo was a definition of genocide as “The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.”
Pamela Geller: Brown University Celebrates 'Palestinians' on 'Indigenous Peoples’ Day'
Last week, Brown University’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs sent out greeting for “Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend,” which has replaced Fall Weekend — Columbus Day weekend — in the uber-politically correct academic environment. Brown’s action is part of the larger effort by the academic left to cast Columbus as a villain and focus on Native Americans as sainted martyrs.

But as if this celebration weren’t politicized enough, Brown made it poisonously so by including the “Palestinians” among the “indigenous people” whose plight was being observed. But what makes this story extra insidious is the fact that the school took this anti-American movement and attempted to turn it into an anti-Israel day as well. The left is so desperate to attack Israel that they twisted their own attack on the U.S. to do so.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day (IPD),” explained the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, “celebrates the resilience and accomplishments of Indigenous people and acknowledges the contemporary struggles indigenous communities face today. Further, IPD is an intervention against erasure, a principle barrier to the improvement of indigenous sovereignty and health status.”

The struggling indigenous people in question, according to the Diversity Office, included “567 Federally Recognized tribes, 61 State Recognized tribes,” as well as “Hawaiians and the people indigenous to its territories in the Caribbean and Pacific Oceans.” Many of these groups, the announcement went on, “experience profound disparities in health care access and health status compared to the general population, resulting in elevated rates of diabetes, liver disease, and other chronic diseases,” which are “exacerbated by a significant shortage of primary care physicians in Indigenous communities and a long-standing mistrust of the American health care system rooted in a history of genocide and forced assimilation.”
Boycott's new target: Bulldozer companies
Anti-Israel boycott (BDS) organizations recently identified a new target. Following the planned evacuation of Khan al-Ahmar, BDS is looking to boycott the bulldozers used to demolish the illegal structures.

Strategic application of measured violence and international sympathy have protected the Bedouins of Khan al-Ahmar from expulsion, and "stopped bulldozers, produced by international corporations to demolish homes and schools," a BDS statement said.

"The strategic BDS campaign is critical, as the Supreme Court approved demolition of Khan al-Ahmar to make way for illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land, including corporations that manufacture and sell the bulldozers involved in the this destruction by Israel: JCB (UK), Caterpillar (USA), Volvo (Sweden), Hyundai (South Korea), Hitachi (Japan) and Liogong (China)."

Another organization involved in the planned boycott is "Who Profits", which tracks companies that are "commercially involved in Israeli and international companies in the continued Israeli control over Palestinian and Syrian land." The same organization sent boycott warning letters to bulldozer manufacturers. The organization's website also stated that the bulldozers of these companies are used for constructing Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria as another reason for the boycott.

Lev HaOlam organization founder Attorney Nati Rom, who fights the global boycott and BDS organizations, said: "The BDS organization appears to be boycotting itself, and their steps become more and more ridiculous, as they spread their frustration to giant corporations." Lev HaOlam sends thousands of product packages from Judea and Samaria to Israeli supporters all over the world and is in contact with thousands of foreign citizens.
Minister: If US student held at airport renounces BDS views, we might let her in
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Tuesday said a US student of Palestinian descent, who has been held at Ben Gurion Airport for a week and faces deportation for allegedly supporting an Israel boycott, can leave Israel whenever she wants.

Erdan, whose ministry is responsible for countering the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement against Israel, known as BDS, also said that if Lara Alqasem were to renounce her past activities and publicly declare that boycott efforts are not legitimate, he would reconsider her case.

Alqasem, 22, who has Palestinian grandparents, was prevented from entering the country after arriving at Ben Gurion Airport last Tuesday, despite having received a student visa from the Israeli Consulate in Miami to study in a masters program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has been held in a airport detention facility ever since.

The Population Immigration and Border Authority has said the decision to stop Alqasem at the airport was due to her “boycott activity,” while Strategic Affairs Ministry officials said she was a member of the National Students for Justice in Palestine, a campus group that calls for boycotting Israel over its policies toward the Palestinians.

“They make a show as if Israel is imprisoning a student,” Erdan, who is also public security minister, told Army Radio on Tuesday morning. “She can go home to her country whenever she wants. This student stood at the head of a branch of an extreme organization, and it is not reasonable that she can come here and enjoy Israel’s academic benefits while she is trying to harm Israeli citizens.”
Government said to use Canary Mission blacklist to bar visitors
Reports by a secretive right-wing website that collects and publishes information about anti-Israel activity of university students and others are being used by Israeli authorities to question or ban people attempting to enter the country, according to a report Thursday.

Documents submitted by the Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry on Thursday show that an American student was barred from entering Israel because of “suspicion of boycott activity” based on four Facebook posts and information on the Canary Mission website, the Haaretz daily reported.

Canary Mission is an anonymous website that aims to name and shame anti-Israel activists on campus.

The site “documents individuals and organizations that promote hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on North American college campuses,” according to its “About us” page.

Critics have accused it of seeking to intimidate pro-Palestinian college students and stifle their activism with the threat of a blacklist.

In August, the Forward newspaper reported that a number of activists believed their Canary Mission profiles were being used by border authorities when they were questioned while trying to enter Israel.
HRC Counterpoint In Chronicle Herald: Ben-Gurion Bashed Unfairly
Leech attacked Ben-Gurion as a Zionist terrorist and a promoter of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Israel territory. He cited Ilan Pappe’s writings to support his own position. It would have been advisable for the Herald to have enlarged on Leech’s background: he’s a left-wing, vehement opponent of Israel and strong advocate of the BDS movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanction of Israeli goods and of Israel) — as is Pappe.

Leech is the editor of the on-line publication Palestine Journal which includes verbal attacks on Israel, and on Canada for supporting the latter. Among his articles, Leech has written, “Why Israel Should Not Exist” (2015), “Fighting Colonialism in Palestine and Canada” (2015) and “Canada’s support for Israel is a ‘hate crime’” (2015).

Palestine Journal, under Leech’s editorship, has links listed to several groups that are defined as terrorist groups by the Canadian government, as well as links to armed groups.

One questions why the Herald did not offer disclosure about Leech, why CBU proudly employs him to teach young college students, or why Leech’s use of settler colonialism (a deeply flawed historiographic and sociological paradigm) goes unanswered by Nova Scotia academics.

One is better served on the topic of Ben-Gurion and Israel by such books as Walter Laqueur’s A History of Zionism. Settler colonialism advocates among Canadian historians need to reappraise their stance, for this interpretative approach too readily lends itself to anti-Israeli treatises.


EU Civil Servant Convicted of Antisemitic Assault by Belgian Court Says He Will Appeal
The European Union civil servant found guilty last week of a vicious antisemitic assault in 2015 has said he will appeal the sentence handed down by a Belgian court.

Stefan Grech, a 49-year-old Maltese citizen, was convicted of incitement to hate or violence toward people of Jewish faith, violation of anti-racism laws, and assault aggravated by racial hatred following a violent altercation in a Brussels cafe in July 2015 — during which he violently attacked an Italian colleague, called her a “dirty Jewess,” and shouted that “the Jews are doing to the Palestinians what Hitler did to the Jews.”

On Oct. 2, Grech was given a three-year suspended sentence and ordered to pay his victim 500 euros in compensation by a court in Brussels. But over the weekend, the Times of Malta reported that Grech would appeal the sentence, accusing the Brussels-based Belgian League Against Antisemitism (LBCA) of launching a “witch-hunt” against him.

Prior to sentencing Grech — who holds a previous conviction for possession of child pornography — the court heard that on July 16, 2015, he had been celebrating his 10th anniversary as an employee of the European Commission with friends at L’Italiano cafe in the Belgian capital. After drinking heavily throughout the evening, Grech, who had been clutching a metal plaque commemorating the fascist leader Benito Mussolini, embarked on a tirade in praise of the late Italian dictator.

Confronted by a 50-year-old Italian woman who also works in a senior position at the European Commission, Grech attacked her when she pointed out to him that Mussolini had murdered thousands of Jews. Witnesses said that when she told Grech that she “could be Jewish,” he then struck her across the head with the metal plaque and attempted to strangle her. Throughout the assault, he yelled antisemitic epithets including, “dirty Jewess,” and, “You should have all been killed.”
Time's up - but no sign that the archive is moving
The deadline for the return of the Iraqi-Jewish archive - September 2018 - has come and gone, but there is still no sign of any movement on this issue.

Eylon Aslan-Levy has filed this report for i24 News: he interviews Harold Rhode, the man who found the archive in the flooded basement of the secret police headquarters in Baghdad in 2003.

The US shipped the random collection of documents, books and Torah scrolls - stolen by Saddam's regime - to the US to be restored, but promised to send it back to Iraq.

Rhode believes that to return the archive would be like returning stolen Jewish property to the Nazis. Iraqi-Jewish groups have been campaigning for the archive - which represents their community's history and heritage - to remain in the US. Four US senators have introduced a bill to this effect.


Inside Iron Dome's secret manufacturing plant
"Globes" visits the complex of bunkers where Rafael produces Israel's short range missile interceptors.

The complex of bunkers in which Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is producing the Iron Dome missile interceptors looks just like you would imagine: it is well protected and guarded, the safety procedures in it are rigorous, and access to it is strictly limited to people with authorization. Those entering are received at a locked iron gate opened only by arrangement after being properly identified, even if the person involved is the head of the project himself. There are illuminated signs on the high fences enclosing the secret bunkers reading, "Work with explosives is taking place in this compound."

The condition for entering the bunker in which final assembly of the missile takes place is leaving behind any device capable of broadcasting or creating static electricity. Cameras, telephones, and recording devices are out of bounds. A heavy door opens, showing long white corridor leading to workspace whose purpose is unmistakable: Tamir Iron Dome interceptor missiles that Rafael employees have been manufacturing for the past seven years are piled on a cart in the center of the room.

Only a few people working at Rafael and the Ministry of Defense know just how many of these missiles have been produced to date. They are keeping this number secret; they merely give a wink to the curious, as if to say, "Don't worry; we've got enough."

The well-built Tamir is colored in glittering silver and gold, weighing 90 kilograms with a three-meter length. It has earned great praise with 1,800 interceptions of rockets fired against vulnerable human and property targets in populous areas in southern and northern Israel.

"Every missile leaving here gets a pat and a kiss"
Sonia Orbuch, Who Fought the Nazis as a Teenager, Has Died at 93
As a teenager, Sonia Orbuch joined a group of partisans fighting the Nazis in Eastern Europe. She survived the war and settled in America. At 93, Orbuch died last Sunday at her home in Corte Madera, California.

In 1941 Orbuch was 16 years old and still known by her given name as Sarah Shainwald, when the Nazis occupied her hometown in eastern Poland and began killing Jews in Luboml’s ghetto. Shainwald and her family fled for the forests and after surviving the frozen winter, joined a band of Soviet partisans to fight back against the Nazis. Her fellow resistance fighters changed her name to Sonia because it sounded less Jewish.

The profile of Orbuch on The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF—a group Orbuch helped to found) website describes her actions as a Partisan and her family’s eventual decision to break with the resistance.

Sonia began her new life in the forest encampment that served as a base for missions of sabotage and resistance. Early on, Sonia was assigned to guard duty and providing first-aid on missions to mine enemy train tracks. With little training, Sonia learned the skills of a field-hospital aide, treating the wounds of injured partisans, using whatever makeshift supplies were available. To avoid possible torture and interrogation in the event of capture, Sonia carried two hand grenades: “One for the enemy, and one for myself.”

… In 1944, Sonia and her parents faced the decision of either leaving the partisans or joining the Red Army. They decided to leave the partisans and took refuge in an abandoned house infected with typhus, a condition they were unaware of at the time. The typhus soon claimed Sonia’s mother, leaving only Sonia and her father.


Towards the end of the war, as German forces retreated, Orbuch and her family returned to Luboml and found that of the 8,000 Jews who had lived there before the war, 50 remained.
Childhood friends separated by Holocaust reunite 75 years later
"Estike," Chaya Levy called out as her childhood friend Esther Sheinberg walked in through the door to her apartment and the two met in person for the first time in 75 years.

After greeting one another with warm embraces and kisses, the two sat down to reminisce about what it was like growing up in the Transylvanian village of Beclean, in what is now Romania.

Up until Sunday, neither of the childhood friends could ever have imagined the other had survived the Holocaust.

Both Levy, 91, and Sheinberg, 88, were deported to the Auschwitz death camp in Poland. At the end of the war, they both made the decision to move to Israel, where they unknowingly lived adjacent to one another in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak for a short time.

The reunion between the two friends came about by accident when their daughters were introduced through a mutual friend and ended up spending the Sukkot holiday together in Safed. While there, they were surprised to discover that both their mothers had grown up in the same village in what was then Hungary. When the daughters later told their mothers about the other girl who had grown up in Beclean, Levy and Sheinberg immediately recognized the other's name and remembered their childhood friend.
France Awards Top Honours to Nazi Hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld
France’s most famous Nazi hunters, Serge Klarsfeld and his German wife Beate, received top honours in a ceremony led by French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday.

Serge Klarsfeld, 83, received the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest award, while the 79-year-old Beate Klarsfeld received the National Order of Merit, having already been decorated with the Legion of Honour in 2014, with the rank of Grand Officer.

The Chief Rabbi of France Haim Korsia was among those who attended the ceremony at the Elysee Palace limited to family and close friends and associates.

Born September 17, 1935, in the Romanian capital Bucharest, Serge Klarsfeld escaped the Holocaust after his family moved to France but saw his father taken away to die in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.

He was naturalised in 1950, and 10 years later, while studying at the prestigious Science-Po university in Paris, Klarsfled met Beate Kuenzel, the daughter of a former German soldier, on a metro platform.

The two, who married three years later, decided to bring fugitive Nazis to justice, a mission they pursued for more than half a century.
During visit to Israel, actor Gerard Butler says 'may decide to stay'
Gerard Butler's irresistible smile and hypnotizing blue eyes can almost convince anyone that he really is capable of saving the world, the way the Scottish actor often does in the movies ("Olympus Has Fallen"; "London Has Fallen") and that's precisely what he does in his latest film, "Hunter Killer," which will hit theaters on October 25.

On the occasion of the Israeli premiere of the film, Butler, 48, has arrived in Israel to attend the glamorous event. This is quite unusual, as Hollywood actors seldom attend premieres in Israel, but the film's Israeli producer, Avi Lerner, may have had a hand in convincing the Hollywood star to come this time.

"It is very challenging to bring an artist of this caliber to Israel," Lerner said. "He only came because I'm Israeli. I asked him to come. This is our sixth movie together, and I'm very pleased that he came."

In the film, which Butler also co-produced, Joe Glass, played by Butler, is the captain of an American submarine on a rescue mission. On the way to rescue a submarine in distress, Glass and his crew come across a Russian coup and must rescue the kidnapped Russian president from rebels who are threatening the world order. The film takes place almost entirely in the submarine.

When asked about the political undertones of the film, which are particularly relevant in the current climate, he says, "I am interested in politics, but I didn't come to Israel to talk about politics."
Jewish Actor William Shatner Talks About Facing a ‘Great Deal’ of Antisemitism as a Child
Jewish Canadian actor William Shatner opened up in a recent interview about being the target of antisemites during his childhood.

The 87-year-old, who is best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, told The Sydney Morning Herald that he experienced “a great deal” of antisemitism growing up in Montreal, a city that was mostly Catholic. Shatner said the discrimination that he faced for being Jewish was “very difficult” for him to deal with.

“I’m shaped by a lot of battles from six years old up until now,” he explained before revealing the kind of antisemitism he regularly faced. “Fights, every day, with one or more kids my size or bigger. Somebody recently showed me a high school graduation book. There I was — a nice-looking boy — and my nickname was ‘Toughie’ because I was always fighting and being attacked. Kids would all crowd around, yelling, ‘Fight! Fight! Fight!’”

During his time at McGill University in Montreal the antisemitism continued, he told The Sydney Morning Herald. He said, “The university I went to had a quota. How I made it through the quota, I don’t know. There was a limit to the number of Jewish kids who could go to that university, no matter how qualified they were.”


Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription
The earliest written inscription of the word Jerusalem written in Hebrew on a 2,000 year old column drum was unveiled on Tuesday at a press conference at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

The limestone column drum that dates back to the Second Temple period, was discovered 10 months ago on an excavation site near the International Convention Center in Jerusalem.

The words: “Hanania son of Dudolos from Jerusalem” was etched on the column which was part of a building that stood in a Jewish potters village near the entrance of the Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago.

Prior to this discovery, the city's name was written as Yerushalem or Shalem in Hebrew, this inscription was the first time the city was written as Yerushalayim in Hebrew characters.

The word Jerusalem was found on silver coins dating before the time of this column, but they were written in Aramaic.

          World's Most Powerful Passport Revealed As Countries' Global Rankings Shift      Cache   Translate Page      
Japan passport holders will find it easier than ever to travel the world, as their travel documents have just moved up in the global Henley Passport Index to take the top spot.

The Henley Passport Index is a ranking of all of the passports in the world based on the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free.

Until now Japan had been sharing joint first place with Singapore, which gained visa-free access to Uzbekistan earlier this year bringing its total to 189 countries.

However, earlier this month Japan gained visa-free access to Myanmar bringing its total to 190 - once again taking it to the top spot.


It's still a milestone for both Japan and Singapore, as 2018 is the first year in the index's 13-year history that either of them has had the most powerful passport in the world.
Both are way ahead of the UK and US which share fifth place with Portugal, the Netherlands, Austria and Luxembourg - but it's worth noting that the top four spots are shared by 10 countries.

Experts had previously revealed that the UK ranking is unlikely to increase until there is certainty regarding Brexit.

[UPDATE: And streiff from Red State.] Lots of vets, lots of national security experts. Two Democrats [UPDATE: three], otherwise Republicans, but all are celebrating the day’s news. Great Ethiopian food thanks to one of the guests, an immigrant and friend. A quite respectable outlay of beer and wine [UPDATE: plus very fine bourbon and Laphroaig]. One professional comedian, one author of adventure fiction. One of Ted Cruz’s people, but otherwise no politicos that I’m aware of myself.

Colonel Kurt is a wild and crazy guy. Ace of Spades came dressed in a sailor suit.

UPDATE: A very pleasant evening. I spent most of it on one corner of Jim's patio that was staked out by myself and an old Iraq comrade, where we were joined by a rotating assortment of the veterans from the party. Jim traveled more widely, and probably has better stories -- or anyway stories he's more likely to repeat. Good times.

TPDM rebels returning to Ethiopia


Tigray Peoples Democratic Movement (TPDM) rebel groups end their armed struggle and returned to Ethiopia today. At least four killed as the lorry that carried them run into an accident.

By Borkena

Eritrea has been serving as a base for various rebel groups with the objective to challenge the government of Ethiopia and all of them used to claim that they resorted to armed struggle for the then TPLF led government was intolerant, as per opposition groups claims, to allow operating in the country peacefully.

Three armed opposition groups have returned to Ethiopia in the recent past following the call by prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s government.

Today, one more armed rebel group returned to Ethiopia. Tigray People’s Democratic Movement (TPDM), an ethnic Tigray rebel group which was said to much larger than the rest of armed groups that returned to Ethiopia has returned home today. In fact, there are rebel groups (like Ogaden National Liberation Front and Afar rebels – ARDUF) have not yet returned to the country although the leaders of these organizations have responded positively to the call by Ethiopian government to end armed struggle and return to Ethiopia for a peaceful struggle.

A report by Fana Broadcasting (FBC) puts the number of TPDM rebels that returned to the country to 2,309. Apparently, there are still TPDM soldiers in Eritrea and are expected to arrive soon.

Residents of the town of Zalambessa reportedly offered a warm welcome as the rebels enter the town, as per a report by FBC.

With regard to the next step for TPDM rebel fighters, Tigray regional state has a plan to reintegrate them the society after orientations. Another condition for their return is that they will disarm themselves before going for training to reintegrate with the society in Tigray.

A report by BBC Amharic service says that four TPMF fighters were killed today after the lorry that carried the rebels run into an accident in Segeneti, within Eritrea.

More than 20 fighters were wounded and hospitalized in Dekemehari hospital in Eritrea.

It is to be recalled that in July 2016 a contingent of TPDM force under Molla Asgedom defected to return to Ethiopia after a reported fall out among the leadership.

PlanetEthiopia.com is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and yet non-profit making Ethiopian popular videos, music, and multimedia entertainment website, founded in February 2008 to reach all Ethiopians and Ethiopia friends worldwide who miss being in Ethiopia.

Our purposely informal, not modern, typical Ethiopian website design has been favored as the best comforting entertainment website design by many Ethiopian visitors worldwide. Every content of design on our website, including the Ethiopian made players, is carefully studied and tested, so it was not a coincidental creation. That's why it got a very positive psychological impact for homesick diaspora Ethiopians looking for a substitute to comfort their yearning. 

Many of our visitors frequently ask regarding our audio music collections:

Why do we not add every song? The answer is simple:

PlanetEthiopia.com does not do mass uploads because we value Ethiopian art, whether it is music or film, of its quality but not of its quantity, so we carefully review and select the medias before we post them.

Why we give away the sophisticatedly created virtual gifts instead of selling them?

The giveaways are just “thank you gifts” for our loyal visitors, criticizers, feedback givers, who help us improve our website. The gifts serve also as promotion and advertising strategy for our website.

          NEWS ALERT: RAIA WA SYRIA,SUDAN KUSINI WAKAMATWA JNIA WAKISAFIRISHA MAMILIONI YA FEDHA      Cache   Translate Page      
ABIRIA wawili Raia wa Sudan Kusini na Syria leo wamekamatwa Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA) wakisafirisha fedha taslim dola elfu 70 za Kimarekani sawa na shilingi milioni 156 za Kitanzania na paundi 3410 za Sudan bila kufuata taratibu.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la JNIA, Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi, Kamishna Msaidizi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa alimtaja Raia wa Sudan Kusini Bi. Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed (38) mwenye hati ya kusafiria namba P01563534 amekamatwa saa 10:00 jioni akiwa eneo la ukaguzi wakati akiingia ndani tayari kusafiri kwa ndege ya Shirika la Ndege la Kenya (KQ 485) akielekea Nairobi.

Hata hivyo, Afande Mwakalukwa amesema abiria huyo mbali na fedha hizo za Kimarekani pia amekamatwa na paundi za Sudan 3410, ambazo zote kwa pamoja alishindwa kutoa taarifa ya fedha alizokutwa nazo kwa mujibu wa sheria ya utakatishaji fedha ya mwaka 2006 iliyofanyiwa marekebisho mwaka 2012.

Pia alimtaja Bw. Mohamed Belal (31), Raia wa Syria mwenye hati ya kusafiria namba 003-16L096876 aliyekuwa akisafiri kwa ndege ya Shirika la ndege la Ethiopia (ET 864) kuelekea Syria kupitia Addis Ababa amekamatwa na dola za kimarekani 10,000 sawa na Tsh. milioni 20 za Kitanzania, ambazo naye alishindwa kuzitolea taarifa. “Watuhumiwa wote wawili wamezuiwa na hawawezi kuendelea na safari zao kwa ajili ya uchunguzi zaidi na hatua za kisheria zilizopo,” amesema Afande Mwakalukwa.

Naye Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Viwanja vya Ndege Tanzania (TAA), Bw. Richard Mayongela amewapongeza maafisa usalama wa JNIA kwa kufanya kazi kwa weledi na uadilifu pamoja na kushirikiana na vyombo vingine vya ulinzi na usalama katika kuhakikisha wasafiri, wadau na maeneo yote ya viwanja vya ndege yanabaki salama na vitendo vya kiuhalifu havina nafasi katika viwanja hivyo. Bw. Mayongela amesema pamoja na watumishi hao kufanya kazi katika wakati mgumu kutokana na baadhi ya abiria kuwa watata kila wanapotaka kutekeleza wajibu wao kwa mujibu wa sheria na kanuni.


Kamishna Msaidizi na Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa akinyanyua juu moja ya bunda la Dola za Kimarekani zilizokamatwa leo kwenye Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), zikisafirisha isivyo halali na raia wa Sudan Kusini Bi. Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed na Bw. Mohamed Belal, raia wa Syria. 
Jumla ya Dola za Kimarekani 70,000 sawa na Tsh. milioni 156 za Kitanzania zikiwa zimekamatwa leo kwenye Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), zikisafirishwa na Raia wawili wa Syria Bw. Mohamed Belal na Bi. Nada Zaelnoo Ahamed raia wa Sudan Kusini kwa kutofuata taratibu. 
Bi.Nada Zaelnoon Ahamed (38) Raia wa Sudan Kusini (katikati mwenye ushungi) akiwa mbele ya waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), baada ya kukamatwa na dola 60,000 za Kimarekani na Paundi 3410 za Sudan. 

Raia wa Syria, Bw. Mohamed Belal (31) mwenye fulana nyeupe akiwa mbele ya waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), baada ya kukamatwa na dola 10,000 za Kimarekani, ambazo hakuzitolea taarifa kwa Maafisa wa Forodha wa kiwanjani hapo. 
Mkurugenzi wa Kiwanja cha Ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), Bw. Paul Rwegasha (kushoto) akimsikiliza Kamishna Msaidizi wa Polisi, Barnabas Mwakalukwa (aliyesimama) alipokuwa akitoa maelezo kwa waandishi wa habari leo ya kukamatwa kwa Raia wawili wa Sudan Kusini na Syria waliokuwa wakisafirikisha fedha taslim milioni 156 bila kufuata sharia. 
Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Viwanja vya Ndege Tanzania (TAA), Bw. Richard Mayongela (wa pili kulia) akisisitiza jambo kwenye mkutano na waandishi wa habari (hawapo pichani) uliofanyika kwenye ukumbi wa Mikutano wa Jengo la Pili la abiria la Kiwanja cha ndege cha Kimataifa cha Julius Nyerere (JNIA), wakati walipokamatwa Raia wawili wa Syria na Sudan Kusini wakisafirisha mamilioni ya fedha bila kufuata taratibu.

Some time ago, author Michael O. Varhola acquired a comprehensive edition of H.P. Lovecraft’s works of fiction and set out to re-read everything he had previously, see what had slipped through the cracks for him, and gain a different perspective on the stories by reading them in the order in which they had been written. As part of this pursuit, he began selecting one element from each of his stories and putting them into game terms. "Identifying something fresh or interesting from each story to put into game terms was more of a challenge than one might have thought, especially as I wanted to capture the feel of the author’s stories, not just create more things that players could roll initiative against and then have their characters either hack ...

Advanced computer and magic users share many traits, including their eccentric natures, propensity to recluse themselves, and shared taste for comfortable clothing.

One phenomenon that makes for a fascinating study, but lacks a magical counterpart in any games we are familiar with, is computer malware. This publication explores the various types of malware and, with a little creativity, attempts to describe what the magical varieties might look like, and, finally, provides a “Spell Hacker” prestige class as an example of how to make use of these concepts. ...

Mohamed Belal (31), Raia wa Syria mwenye hati ya kusafiria namba 003-16L096876 aliyekuwa akisafiri kwa ndege ya Shirika la ndege la Ethiopia (ET 864) kuelekea Syria kupitia Addis Ababa amekamatwa na dola za kimarekani 10,000 sawa na Tsh. milioni 20 za Kitanzania, ambazo naye alishindwa kuzitolea taarifa.
 
“Watuhumiwa wote wawili wamezuiwa na hawawezi kuendelea na safari zao kwa ajili ya uchunguzi zaidi na hatua za kisheria zilizopo,” amesema Afande Mwakalukwa.
 
Naye Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Viwanja vya Ndege Tanzania (TAA), Bw. Richard Mayongela amewapongeza maafisa usalama wa JNIA kwa kufanya kazi kwa weledi na uadilifu pamoja na kushirikiana na vyombo vingine vya ulinzi na usalama katika kuhakikisha wasafiri, wadau na maeneo yote ya viwanja vya ndege yanabaki salama na vitendo vya kiuhalifu havina nafasi katika viwanja hivyo.
 
Bw. Mayongela amesema pamoja na watumishi hao kufanya kazi katika wakati mgumu kutokana na baadhi ya abiria kuwa watata kila wanapotaka kutekeleza wajibu wao kwa mujibu wa sheria na kanuni.
 
Ametoa wito kwa wadau, wasafiri na wafanyakazi wote kushirikiana na maafisa usalama, vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama katika kutoa taarifa stahiki ili vitendo vya kiuhalifu kama hivi visipate nafasi kwenye viwanja vya ndege kwani ndio vinatoa taswira ya nchi.

When God Does Not Draw Near

When you are desperate for God to intervene in the midst of your trials, where in the Bible do you turn most often for hope?

Over the last decade, 2 Chronicles 16:9 has been a favorite for me: “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.” God is not slow to see our needs. He is not distracted or preoccupied. His eyes run to give strong support to those who are his. He is an attentive Father and a tenacious comforter.

The fierceness and tenderness of God’s love in this verse makes the next six words all the more chilling:

“You have done foolishly in this.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

When the prophet Hanani reminded King Asa that God’s eyes run to and fro throughout the earth, he was warning the king, even condemning him, not reassuring and comforting him. What was his message to Asa? If you seek God’s help in your desperation, no one and nothing will be able to harm you. But if you run elsewhere for help, and do not turn to God, no one and nothing will be able to save you.

How to Rely on God

Asa knew the sweetness of seeing God suddenly send strong support. Just two chapters earlier, when a million Ethiopians descended on his army, and he was outnumbered two to one,

Asa cried to the Lord his God, “O Lord, there is none like you to help, between the mighty and the weak. Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this multitude. O Lord, you are our God; let not man prevail against you.” (2 Chronicles 14:11)

What kind of heart does God run to support? First, one that recognizes that no one and nothing can help like him — “O Lord, there is none like you to help.” God does not promise to help those who treat him like a last resort, and not as a first defense. Asa looked immediately to God when the Ethiopians invaded, not to his own resources and not to his allies, knowing that God alone was greater than all his enemies.

Second, the one whose heart is blameless toward God acknowledges his own weakness and God’s strength: “O Lord, there is none like you to help, between the mighty and the weak.” The Ethiopians were mightier, in power and number. Judah, the nation under Asa, was weak. But the king knew that his God confounds the wisdom of even the wisest men and overturns the power of the strongest armies — making the mighty weak and the weak mighty to reveal more of his own magnificence.

Third, Asa took the courageous next step in reliance on God. He prayed, “Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this multitude.” Because they trusted their sovereign God to act, they did not run and hide, but advanced. They went into a battle they could not win on their own.

What happens when Asa runs to God for help? God runs to fight for Asa: “So the Lord defeated the Ethiopians before Asa and before Judah, and the Ethiopians fled” (2 Chronicles 14:12). Asa relied on the Lord, and God defeated a million soldiers.

Your Wars Won’t End

But Asa’s heart did not remain wholly God’s. When Baasha king of Israel attacked Judah, even though Asa had already seen the Lord defeat a million Ethiopians because he prayed, the king turned to Syria for help — and not to God.

Then Asa took silver and gold from the treasures of the house of the Lord and the king’s house and sent them to Ben-hadad king of Syria. . . . Ben-hadad listened to King Asa and sent the commanders of his armies against the cities of Israel, and they conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel-maim, and all the store cities of Naphtali. (2 Chronicles 16:2, 4)

With Syria’s help, Asa won the battle, but he had lost the Lord’s support. The blazing eyes that had once run to and fro to help him, now hid from him. “You have done foolishly in this,” the prophet says, “for from now on you will have wars” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

God Will Not Help You

When we run to someone or something to the exclusion of God, we reveal that, at bottom, we rely on ourselves instead of on him. We trust that we know better than God what would be better for us. Instead of stopping, praying, and looking to God for support and direction, we unlock our phones and thumb through our contacts for someone like Syria.

When conflict flares up in our marriages and friendships, and we neglect to actually stop and ask God for his help, should we be surprised when conflicts become more frequent and volatile? When our ministries are mired in swamps of relational or organizational problems, and we keep putting off concerted prayer about the issues, do we expect the waters not to rise even higher while our feet sink deeper and deeper? When major decisions hover like a storm cloud, and we do everything else we can possibly think to do, except the most important thing, will we not feel like a million enemies have lined up against us?

Asa teaches us, through stubborn failure: if we rely on ourselves and look elsewhere for help, not only will God leave us to fend for ourselves, but the wars may never end.

The Worst Way to Die

What if Asa would have seen just how much he lost when he won the battle without God? What if he would have seen how shallow and temporary his victory was? What if he would have listened? Instead, Asa hated the prophet’s message: “Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in the stocks in prison, for he was in a rage with him because of this” (2 Chronicles 16:10). That’s how stubborn self-reliance responds when confronted with the truth — in Asa and in us.

Three awful years pass until Asa’s death: “In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was diseased in his feet, and his disease became severe. Yet even in his disease he did not seek the Lord, but sought help from physicians” (2 Chronicles 16:12). Is there a more pitiful demise? He preferred to die in a physician’s hands rather than entrust himself to God’s. Jesus would say, “Those who are well have no need of a physician” (Mark 2:17) — even as the disease climbs from their feet to their heart.

When You Need Him

When God reminds us, through his word, how much we need him, either pride will rise up in rage to defend itself or humility will send us to our knees with brokenhearted joy. When we feel our need for God, and yet resist running to him, we should not expect him to run to us. He will not prop up our self-reliance, because it says so little about him. Another king, a humbled King David, would have warned Asa (and anyone like him), “Though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar” (Psalms 138:6).

However, if we run to God and rely on him, casting our burdens on him because he cares for us (1 Peter 5:7), trusting that the one who did not spare his Son for us will gladly give us all we need for everlasting joy (Romans 8:32), God himself will help us — whenever we need him, however weak we feel, whoever or whatever stands against us, whatever it takes.

If his eyes ran to and fro throughout the whole earth to rescue an ancient and wandering king, how much more will he race to rescue those for whom his Son died to save.

Ethiopia's Tsgabu Grmay has signed a two-year contract to join Mitchelton-Scott, the Australian WorldTour team announced on Tuesday.

Grmay has ridden the 2018 season with Trek-Segafredo, with whom he was selected to ride his third Tour de France in July, but had to quit during stage 2, suffering from abdominal pains.

Prior to that, the climber rode for Bahrain-Merida and Lampre, having turned pro with MTN-Qhubeka in 2013.

Grmay is the reigning Ethiopian time trial champion, taking his fifth national title in the discipline in June, while he is also a three-time national road race champion, having won the title in 2013, 2104 and 2015.

His only other pro wins have come at the African Continental Championships individual time trial in 2014, and a stage at the Tour de Taiwan in 2013.

However, Grmay's goal is to one day win a stage at the Tour de France.

An authority on wolves, Veterinarian, Dr. Madeline Styles is hired to stop a disease killing the wolf pups at the Shadow of the Moon Wolf Sanctuary in Montana. Wyatt Weylan who runs the sanctuary is drop dead gorgeous, mysterious, and domineering. A man one does not deny.

The minute Wyatt sees Madeline, he is smitten—no—obsessed. Unfortunately, he is forbidden to mate a human. Could she be a rare wolf maiden? A woman with the mark of the wolf. Not possible.

Madeline discovers the pack’s true nature and unexpected dangers that come with living in a secret society. Wyatt does his best to ease her into the truth, yet, an immediate threat from an enemy werewolf shadows their tentative relationship.


Wyatt glanced at his watch. “I’m running a few minutes late. Where’s Dr. Styles speaking?”
She pointed her pen. “Down past the reception area, to the right. You can’t miss it. There’s a photograph of her in front of the lecture hall. Don’t forget to turn off your cell phone. She’s already started her presentation.”
“Thank you.” He moved fast. In front of a closed room was a huge poster with her name, Dr. Madeline B. Styles, and her topic, ‘Distemper in Wild Populations of Afroalpine Ethiopian Wolves’. Her photograph was bigger than life. She sat on a boulder holding a young red wolf pup. Her lusciously curly hair was a deep brown auburn with red highlights that accentuated her stunning face and big brown eyes. She wore a white, button-down, sleeveless shirt and khaki safari shorts that displayed well-toned, tanned legs. His heart hammered with lust. Damn. She is strikingly beautiful. Wyatt took a deep breath and, in his excitement to enter, he accidentally slammed the door open. All eyes turned to him at the momentary disturbance. He mouthed, “Sorry.”
Dr. Styles cast him a brief glance before showing the next slide. “As you can see, this female had five healthy pups.”
His intention had been to sit in the back and try to stay awake. After many years of attending such conferences with his parents, Wyatt had lost interest in wolf biology. However, he’d have no problem staying awake for this one. He stood there, staring like a lovesick idiot. Her hair was up, with a few loose curls around the nape of her pale neck. He could almost taste her flesh. She wore a classy, red silk shirt and a straight, tapered black skirt that flaunted subtle curves on a svelte body and a deliciously beckoning bottom. Her e-mail about a hot lap dance played in his mind like a musical tune stuck in his head.
Wyatt scanned the small auditorium for closer seats. There was an empty one in the front row. The better to smell her. He walked, no, stalked to the empty chair close to the aisle. He sat and watched her, ignoring the power point, except for the occasional slide that had her in it. He focused all of his senses on her. The scent of her shampoo, the look of her body, and the small sound of her tongue nervously licking her lips were all enough to drive him mad with desire.
He noticed that her pulse had quickened and she smelled nervous as his eyes bore into her. He eased her tension by turning his attention back to the slide show. Her voice was deep for a woman. It reminded him of sultry, old-generation Hollywood actresses with lower, richer tones that advertised sensuality.
A wolf’s howl ringtone sounded from his pocket. Shit, he’d forgotten to turn off his phone. He pulled it out. It was Tilda. Fumbling, he turned it off after the fourth ringtone howl. The audience laughed. He looked around sheepishly. “Sorry, I forgot to turn it off.”
Her big, brown eyes sparkled in amusement, as if relaxed that she now had the power. “Next time, tell your wolf to call you after my talk.”
More laughter.
She lectured for another twenty minutes while displaying photographs of distemper-damaged cells and the endangered small wolves. Anyone else would’ve sounded boring, but not Madeline. Especially not with that sultry voice that made him want to howl, as if she was a moon goddess. She entertained rather than lectured, using humor and sharing interesting experiences with local customs and politics. The way she described the geography and history of Ethiopia and its wolf population, he felt like he’d been there with her. All thoughts of calling up women from a recommended escort service vanished from his mind. He would pursue her. Boyfriend or not.
The projector was turned off and the lights turned back on. “Any questions?”
A few hands shot up and a page walked around with a mike. Most of the questions were about wolf diseases and, in particular, distemper and her work in Ethiopia. The questions he wanted to ask were not meant for the public. Did she like going out to Italian or French restaurants? Would she disrobe so that he could inspect for the mark of the wolf?
After she answered all the questions, a man came up to the podium, complimented her work and asked for a round of applause. “After a thirty-minute break for drinks and refreshments, please join us for a banquet in the dining area,” he announced.
Wyatt stood. He wanted to talk to her, but it looked like she was too busy, packing up her equipment and still talking to a few people, their notebooks out. Patience. Now would be a good time to call back Tilda. He turned his cell phone on, then raised it and clicked a picture of Madeline as the last of her admirers left. His reaction was so strong. Was it because she was a wolf maiden? Tilda may be able to do a search on their lycan bank of possible wolf maidens.
Wyatt stepped out of the lecture theatre and overheard her name mentioned by a man down the hall. He tuned in.
A man with light brown hair in his twenties was talking to a tall blonde guy. “I know Maddie is upset about her break up with Mark, but just call her in a few weeks. Ask her out for coffee or something. Anything.”
The blond guy, a subordinate lacking confidence, looked hesitant. “I don’t know. I’ve only been out of vet school for a year. What makes you think she’ll want to go out with me?” He asked the male matchmaker.

Wyatt grinned. If he had to ask someone else that question, then he doesn’t have a chance, not with such a woman. He stared at her display photo again. So, she’s free. This trip was turning out better than he planned.

Will Bledig reject his true destiny as the prophesied lycan leader of Britain and remain a knight of the Round Table? Can he deny his desire for the lovely wolf maiden, Annora, who has already captured his inner wolf’s heart?
