ITALY : PRIEST CANCELS NATIVITY SCENE BECAUSE IT COULD OFFEND MUSLIMS

Self-inflicted, preemptive sharia law. Source: Priest CANCELS Nativity because it could offend Muslims | World | News | Daily Express

Fr Sante Braggiè, from the city of Cremona in northern Italy, said there would be no nativity scene at the local cemetery this year as it could offend people from other faiths whose relatives are buried there.Fr Braggiè said: “A small corner of the cemetery is reserved for Muslim graves.“A crib positioned within sight of them could be seen as a lack of respect for followers of other faiths, hurt the sensibilities of Muslims, as well as Indians and even atheists. “In short, it would be a mess.”The priest also said that there were a shortage of council workers to set up the crib. Fr Oreste Mori, Fr Braggiè’s predecessor, said: “Seriously? I can’t believe it.”

According to a report in the Italian newspaper Courier della Serra, he said: “We cannot renounce our culture and traditions.“That would be an unpardonable weakness.”“I am, for the time being at least, in Italy, not Saudi Arabia.” Local councillors have also blasted the priest’s comments, calling on the religious leader to change his mind and run the nativity.Councillor Cristina Cappellini said: “I hope Fr Braggiè changes his mind and apologises to the community. “A parish priest should preserve, honour and promote the symbols of our culture, of our traditions, of our Christian identity.”

RACIAL WAR/THE WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY/YOUR LAST CHRISTMAS


RISE OF XENOPHOBIA IN EUROPE CAUSED BY LOSS OF CULTURAL IDENTITY  - EXPERTS

The coming genocide of our societies under the disguise of racial war, xenophobia and islamophobia


 

© Sputnik/ Eduard Erben Europe 06:18 16.12.2016(updated 08:59 16.12.2016)

A panel of academics in London have detailed the rise of xenophobia and Islamophobia within Western Europe by identifying three areas of concern, including the issue of Muslim identity in the public space, a crisis of white privilege, and the breakdown of neoliberalism. "I would go as far to say, that before the early 1990s, there were no Muslims in Great Britain, or in many parts of Western Europe. And by that I mean that the idea of being a Muslim in the public space just did not exist.

There was a clear racial order where the indigenous population had a dominating white state of mind — and pigmentation — and there were pockets of growing ethnic minority communities who conducted their faiths and practices amongst themselves," Professor Salman Sayyid, from the University of Leeds in UK, told the conference.

Speaking at The Rise of Xenophobia and Islamophobia in Europe conference in London, Professor Sayyid added:


"In 1990 the global protest against author Salman Rushdie's 'Satanic Verses' book was seen as one of the largest mobilizations of people by Muslims. In a wider UK climate of a trade union crisis, economic recession and a disgruntled working class, this was the first sign of the Muslim public presence that society became wary of."



​According to Sayyid, Muslims in Europe and outside of the continent's borders are thought of as a 'problem' beyond the popular trope detailing a fear of ethnic minorities and refugee communities taking over Western values and culture. When these refugees and migrants happen to be Muslims, the problem is magnified. Dr. Alekandra Lewicki, from the Free University of Berlin, provided analysis of parallels from Germany with trends across Western Europe: "Racism in Germany has been prevalent for some time but now it has been diverted into a mainstream political movement by the likes of the right-wing Alternative For Germany populist party. There has been a significant rise in racism and xenophobic attacks on mosques over the last few years in particular, and the public perception — that it has all been triggered by the refugee crisis — is not very accurate. In my opinion, inhibition has been lost and holding right-wing, hateful views has been legitimized by populist politics," Lewicki said.




​ Dr. Farid Hafez, a researcher at Salzburg University in Austria, provided input on the trends emerging in his geographical region.


Austria has a strong far-right movement and what we are also seeing here is the very modern rise of a new style of right-wing populist politics. Similar to countries such as Germany, and also in wider western European countries such as Belgium, Sweden, and France, racism and xenophobia has always existed, but now it has been manipulated to reach extreme levels. We have also seen signs of unusual far-right alliances with some fringe Zionist movements — who also perceive Islam as a threat in Europe to fight against," Hafez told the conference.

Hafez suggested that there has been a significant failure by central parties in Austria who have been unable to provide an alternative worldview to the dissolving identity of their European Union nation-states. The notion of what it means to be British, Dutch, German or French has become blurred, he opined, resulting in a major identity crisis. Populist movements have become the only choice for people seeking real change. ​Sayyid elaborated on the identity crisis of indigenous communities in Western Europe.




In the US we have had a black president. In the UK we have just seen elected an ethnic, Muslim mayor, and these become justifications to claim that society is no longer racist. Farage is not racist if you ask him, he claims to be defending white, British cultural values. The far-right movements also claim they are not racists, but are defending white privilege. So Islamophobia and xenophobia has been conditioned by the crisis of what it means to be white in a society where everyone wishes for equality," he told Sputnik.

When asked what the panel felt is the proper response to the rise of vicious cases of abuse and hateful attacks in public settings, Sayyid responded, "Collective action and mobilization is difficult, especially amongst minority communities who may also see other levels of sectarian or cultural divisions amongst themselves. In Islam itself, there is significant diversity and so any collective consciousness is remarkable, if it exists. We must also remember that the rise in hate crimes associated with those who hold xenophobic views doesn't just affect Muslims and ethnic minorities, it affects all of society."



"The only response is for progressive movements to organize and to resist the divisive right-wing movement. All historical transformations have been a struggle, and we are now very much in the midst of a very new state of struggle," Sayyid told Sputnik.

FRANCE - BEAUCAIRE : LA CRECHE RESTE EN PLACE, LA LIGUE DES DROTS DE L'HOMME CONDAMNEE A VERSER 1 200 EUROS

21 déc. 2016, 15:05



© Nicolas Maeterlinck Source: www.globallookpress.com
L'installation d'une crèche de Noël à Beaucaire par la mairie FN avait déclenché une polémique

La Ligue des droits de l’homme, qui avait demandé au maire Front national de Beaucaire de ne pas mettre en place de crèche de Noël par respect pour la laïcité, a vu sa requête rejetée et devra verser 1 200 euros à la commune.

Le tribunal administratif de Nîmes a rejeté le 21 décembre la demande de la Ligue des droits de l'homme et du citoyen (LDH), de suspendre l’installation d’une crèche de Noël à l’hôtel de ville de Beaucaire. L’association a par ailleurs été condamnée à vers 1 200 euros à la municipalité pour les dépenses.

Le maire Front national de la ville Julien Sanchez s’est réjoui de la décision sur Twitter.



Le 20 décembre, l’avocate de la LDH Sophie Mazas avait demandé en référé au magistrat du tribunal administratif de Nîmes, de suspendre l’installation de la crèche. La Ligue estimait en effet que l'initative était contraire «à la loi de 1905 et au principe de neutralité que doit défendre une mairie». = Mais respect des droits de l'homme et de liberté de culte pour les athéistes, satanistes, islamiques dont plusieurs se cachent derrière la sacro-sainte laïcité...

Intervention de Mgr Auza au Conseil de sécurité

21 décembre 2016 Constance Roques Organismes internationaux, Rome


Mgr Bernardito Auza, capture
 
Le Saint-Siège appelle la communauté internationale à « s’unir dans un engagement commun » contre la guerre, « principal facteur qui facilite la traite des personnes ».

C’est ce qu’a déclaré Mgr Bernardito Auza, nonce apostolique et observateur permanent du Saint-Siège aux Nations Unies, devant le Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU au cours du débat public sur le « Maintien de la paix et de la sécurité internationale: Traite des personnes en situation de conflit », mardi 20 décembre 2016.

Pour que la lutte contre la traite des êtres humains soit efficace, la communauté internationale doit s’unir pour « mettre fin aux combats, à la haine et à la violence », a affirmé Mgr Auza.

Il a souligné que pour le Saint-Siège, la question de la traite des personnes revêtait  « une importance prépondérante » et que l’esclavage moderne devrait être « condamné sans équivoque ».  « Ceux qui commettent de tels crimes doivent être incriminés », a-t-il ajouté.

L’observateur permanent du Saint-Siège a rappelé que toutes les « questions ouvertes » devraient être résolues par la voie de « la diplomatie et du dialogue ».

Voici notre traduction complète de l’allocution de Mgr Auza.

MD

Intervention du Saint-Siège au Conseil de sécurité

Monsieur le Président, Le Saint-Siège est reconnaissant envers la présidence du Royaume d’Espagne d’avoir porté ce sujet très important de la traite des personnes en situation de conflit aux délibérations de ce Conseil et à l’attention de la communauté internationale. Pour le Saint-Siège, cette question de la traite des personnes revêt une importance prépondérante. Les gens de bonne volonté, quelles que soient leurs croyances religieuses, ne peuvent jamais permettre aux femmes, aux enfants et aux hommes d’être traités simplement comme des objets, d’être trompés, violés, souvent vendus et revendus à des fins lucratives, les laissant dévastés dans leur esprit et dans leur corps pour être finalement éliminés ou abandonnés. Ce traitement est honteux et barbare. Il doit être condamné sans équivoque. Ceux qui commettent de tels crimes doivent être incriminés.

Monsieur le Président, Le Saint-Siège note que le rapport du Secrétaire général sur la mise en œuvre des mesures de lutte contre la traite des personnes (5/2016/949) contient une multitude de statistiques et met en lumière les nombreuses questions qui sont liées à cette pratique ignoble. Le rapport montre clairement la complexité de la traite des personnes en tant que phénomène international et illustre le caractère multidimensionnel du problème, dont la résolution nécessitera la collaboration de nombreux organismes des Nations Unies, la coopération des gouvernements régionaux, nationaux et locaux et l’admirable travail sur le terrain des organisations de la société civile, en particulier des organisations et des groupes religieux. Le Pape François, qui a fait de la lutte contre la traite des personnes et d’autres formes d’esclavage moderne une haute priorité, a affirmé avec passion:

« Toute personne et tous les peuples sont égaux et leur liberté et leur dignité doivent être reconnues. Toute relation discriminatoire qui ne respecte pas la conviction fondamentale selon laquelle «l’autre est comme moi» constitue un crime, et très souvent un crime odieux. C’est pourquoi nous déclarons, au nom de tous les peuples et de tous ceux de notre croyance, que l’esclavage moderne, sous forme de trafic humain, de travail forcé, de prostitution ou de trafic d’organes, est un crime «contre l’humanité». Ses victimes sont de tous les horizons, mais la plupart sont parmi les plus pauvres et les plus vulnérables de nos frères et sœurs. Au nom de ceux qui appellent nos communautés à l’action et qui, sans exception, rejettent complètement toute privation systématique de la liberté individuelle pour des raisons d’exploitation personnelle ou commerciale, en leur nom nous faisons cette déclaration. »

Il existe de nombreuses causes et facteurs qui aident et favorisent les formes contemporaines d’esclavage comme la traite des personnes. Parmi ceux-ci figurent la pauvreté, le sous-développement et l’exclusion, surtout lorsqu’ils sont associés à un manque d’accès à l’éducation ou à des possibilités d’emploi rares, voire inexistantes. Le Saint-Siège souhaite que le trafic de stupéfiants figure sur la liste des crimes accompagnant la traite des êtres humains, ainsi que le blanchiment d’argent, le commerce des armes et la prostitution des enfants.

Monsieur le Président, À l’heure actuelle, le principal facteur qui facilite la traite des personnes est la guerre et les conflits armés. La traite des êtres humains est florissante parallèlement à la crise actuelle des réfugiés et des migrants, qui a été principalement provoquée par les guerres et les conflits. Étant donné que les choix humains provoquent des conflits et des guerres, il est tout à fait à notre portée et de notre responsabilité de s’attaquer à cette cause fondamentale qui pousse des millions à devenir des réfugiés, très vulnérables aux trafiquants d’êtres humains. Pour que la lutte contre la traite des êtres humains soit efficace, la communauté internationale doit s’unir dans un engagement commun de mettre fin aux combats, à la haine et à la violence et de poursuivre la paix et la réconciliation.
 
Le Saint-Siège reste fermement convaincu que la voie de la résolution des questions ouvertes doit être celle de la diplomatie et du dialogue. Le Saint-Siège encourage le Conseil de sécurité à continuer de lutter contre le fléau de la traite des personnes, principalement par la prévention et la fin des conflits armés. Le défi que pose la traite des personnes est immense, appelant tous à assumer leurs responsabilités respectives et à collaborer les uns avec les autres. Le Saint-Siège s’engage à jouer son rôle pour relever ce défi.

Merci, Monsieur le Président.

«ILS SONT HAÏS A CAUSE DE JESUS!»: PRIERE DU PAPE FRANCOIS POUR LES MARTYRS D'AUJOURD'HUI 


La bête (Pape Jésuite François) que je vis était semblable à un léopard; ses pieds étaient comme ceux d'un ours, et sa gueule comme une gueule de lion. Le dragon lui donna sa puissance, et son trône, et une grande autorité.

Et il lui fut donné de faire la guerre aux saints, et de les vaincre. Et il lui fut donné autorité sur toute tribu, tout peuple, toute langue, et toute nation.
Et tous les habitants de la terre l'adoreront, ceux dont le nom n'a pas été écrit dès la fondation du monde dans le livre de vie de l'agneau qui a été immolé.
11 Puis je vis monter de la terre une autre bête (Obama) , qui avait deux cornes semblables à celles d'un agneau, et qui parlait comme un dragon.
Apocalypse 13

«Plus nombreux qu’aux premiers siècles»

26 décembre 2016 Marina Droujinina Pape François

 
Angélus du 26 décembre 2016, capture CTV

Le pape François a rendu hommage aux chrétiens martyrs d’aujourd’hui qui sont « plus nombreux que ceux des premiers siècles ».

C’est ce qu’il a affirmé avant l’angélus de la Saint-Étienne ce lundi 26 décembre 2016, place Saint-Pierre.

« Nous voulons aujourd’hui penser à ceux qui souffrent la persécution et être proches d’eux par notre affection, notre prière et nos larmes aussi », a dit le pape François.

« De nombreux frères et sœurs dans la foi subissent des injustices, des violences, et ils sont haïs à cause de Jésus ! », a-t-il confirmé. Aujourd’hui, «  l’Église fait l’expérience de dures persécutions, en différents lieux, jusqu’à l’épreuve suprême du martyre », a témoigné le pape.

Quatre-vingt-dix mille morts

« Lorsque nous lisons l’histoire des premiers siècles, ici, à Rome, nous lisons tant de cruauté contre les chrétiens, a-t-il rappelé. Je vous le dis : cette cruauté existe aujourd’hui, et en plus grand nombre, contre les chrétiens. »

En évoquant la célébration du Noël par les chrétiens persécutés d’Irak, le pape a souligné que c’était « un exemple de fidélité à l’Évangile ». « En dépit des épreuves et des dangers, a-t-il dit, ils témoignent avec courage de leur appartenance au Christ et ils vivent l’Évangile en s’engageant en faveur des plus démunis, des plus négligés, en faisant du bien à tous sans distinction. Ils témoignent ainsi de la charité dans la vérité. »

Environ 90 mille chrétiens ont été tués pour leur foi en 2016 et entre 500 et 600 millions de chrétiens ne peuvent pas professer leur foi librement, tels sont les chiffres cités à l’antenne de Radio Vatican par Massimo Introvigne, directeur du Centre d’études sur les nouvelles religions (Cesnur).

Parmi ceux-ci, 70 pour cent, soit 63.000, ont été tués dans des conflits tribaux en Afrique.  Les autrse 30 pour cent, soit 27.000, sont victimes des attaques terroristes, de la destruction des villages chrétiens, de la persécution gouvernementale, comme dans le cas de la Corée du Nord.

« Sans vouloir oublier ou minimiser les souffrances des membres d’autres religions, dit Massimo Introvigne, les chrétiens sont le groupe religieux le plus persécuté dans le monde. »

De nombreux musulmans aussi = Qui sert à attiser la haine contre les autres nations tout en implantant les lois canoniques de Rome, une fois le pays détruit en plus de s'emparer des richesses du pays.

En évoquant la persécution des chrétiens par Daesh sur les territoires conquis, le professeur Introvigne souligne qu’il y a « des chrétiens qui ont consciemment choisi de rester sur ces terres et de continuer, comme ils le pouvaient, à témoigner de leur foi ». L’Église connaît « plusieurs cas » de ce témoignage, a-t-il précisé, et elle en étudie « certains » pour « une éventuelle béatification ».

En même temps, il a souligné qu’en parlant de Daesh on ne doit pas oublier qu’il « tue aussi beaucoup de musulmans et qu’en 2016, selon nos estimations, le nombre de chrétiens tués pour leur foi et le nombre de musulmans tués pour leur foi, à l’exception de l’Afrique … est un nombre très similaire ».

THE MAIN ANTISEMITIC INCIDENTS OF 2016






The Black Lives Matter (BLM) coalition should be high on the list. Its platform falsely claims that Israel is an “apartheid state” which perpetrates genocide against the Palestinians.

It has become a tradition that at year’s end the Simon Wiesenthal Center publishes a selection of the year’s major antisemitic incidents. When the list was started in 2010 it was two pages long. By last year it had tripled to six pages. Concerning 2016 there are two new aspects. The first is that a widely accepted definition of antisemitism has been in existence since May, namely that of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

Its acceptance required the approval of its 31 democratic member countries. The second aspect is that the perhaps largest antisemitic incident this year did not even mention Jews: in 2016, UNESCO accepted a resolution which refers to the Temple Mount exclusively as Al-Haram Al-Sharif/Al-Aksa Mosque. In so doing, it dissociated Jews (and Christians) from Jerusalem.

This year it will be difficult for the SWC executives to do their work in view of the many major antisemitic incidents to choose from. A few suggestions thus may be helpful. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) coalition should be high on the list. Its platform falsely claims that Israel is an “apartheid state” which perpetrates genocide against the Palestinians.

Another prime candidate for the SWC list is Jeremy Corbyn, the extreme left-wing leader of the British Labour Party. Under his leadership antisemitism in the party has greatly expanded. Corbyn has called Hamas and Hezbollah his “friends” and for so many months refused to distance himself from that statement that when he finally did, it was meaningless.

Corbyn promoted his strategy adviser Seumas Milne, who is a Hamas proponent. He also gave notorious antisemitic slur producer Ken Livingstone an important position in the party. The latter was later suspended because of antisemitic remarks about Hitler supporting Zionism. When the antisemitism in the party became clear, he chose an unqualified investigator who produced a highly unprofessional report on the issue. Corbyn’s acts do not fit the IHRA definition. This shows that the definition in relation to anti-Israel antisemitism is far too concise and should be complemented by a more detailed definition of this type of antisemitism.

There are other candidates from the UK. One is Malia Bouattia, the president of the National Union of Students. The Home Affairs Select Committee of the Commons condemned her for calling Birmingham University a “Zionist outpost.” The committee also said that the National Union of Students (NUS) has failed to take seriously a growing culture of antisemitism on campuses.

The SWC will also have to decide whether it wants to include in the list regular producers of antisemitic smears that have made the list in the past, for example Baroness Jenny Tonge. This year she has said that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is a major cause for the rise of jihadism and Islamic State, and hosted an event at the House of Lords where Jews were blamed for the Holocaust and the British government was called on to apologize for the 1917 Balfour Declaration.

The Muslim world is a prime supplier of antisemitic recidivists. One of these is the Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan. One statement from 2016 which qualifies him is “I don’t approve of what Hitler did, and neither do I approve of what Israel has done,” according to a translation by AFP. “When it’s a question of so many people dying, it’s inappropriate to ask who was the more barbarous.”

In view of Hungarian antisemitism at least one candidate from that country should make the list.

Perhaps it should be the Hungarian government for awarding antisemitic Magyar Hirlap columnist and conservative party Fidesz publicist Zsolt Bayer the “Hungarian Middle Cross,” the third highest decoration of achievement the government bestows.

No annual list of antisemitic slurs can be complete without including candidates from the Scandinavian hotbeds of hypocrisy and antisemitism, Norway and Sweden. The third largest Norwegian town, Trondheim, is now in the running as candidate for Europe’s capital of the anti-Israeli version of antisemitism for deciding to boycott products from the settlements.

SWC circles informed me that Swedish foreign minister Margot Wallström barely escaped the list of major antisemitic incidents last year. This year she should definitely be on the list for her comments calling for an investigation into whether Israel is guilty of extrajudicial killings of Palestinians during the most recent wave of terrorism. The leader of the Yesh Atid Party, Yair Lapid, explicitly called her an antisemite during a rally in Stockholm.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is also an annually returning antisemitic phenomenon. Seventy Jews wrote a letter to The New York Review of Books supporting only a targeted boycott of all goods and services from all Israeli settlements as well as investments there. They would be a representative candidate of the BDS list because of their double standards, which are a core element of antisemitism.

The above selection may be somewhat helpful to the SWC executives. The problem is that it only contains a small part of the many candidates for this year’s list.

CAMPUS ANTISEMITISM : THE YEAR IN REVIEW

December 26, 2016 7:46 am

 

by Kenneth L Marcus

 

An anti-Israel demonstration at Berkeley. Photo: Screenshot.

This has been an extraordinarily eventful year in the campaign against campus antisemitism, especially from our perspective at the Louis D. Brandeis Center. On the one hand, Jewish students face a worsening climate. This year, an AMCHA Initiative study showed a 45% increase in campus antisemitism during the first half of 2016 as compared with the first half of 2015.

On the other hand, we also see increasing awareness of both alt-right and left-wing forms of antisemitism. The fight back has been increasingly successful. Various indicators suggest, for example, that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is reeling in the face of repeated losses. Unfortunately, we have seen anti-Israel protesters focus instead on disrupting pro-Israel events and harassing Jewish pro-Israel students.

As the year draws to a close, we reflect on extraordinary challenges, hard-fought battles, major successes, occasional setbacks and hope for renewed success in the coming year. Here are 10 of the best, worst, memorable, frustrating and gratifying developments of the last 12 months.



December 30, 2016 4:25 pm

1. California Regents Condemn Antisemitic Anti-Zionism

In March, the Board of Regents of the University of California adopted formal “Principles Against Intolerance,” in response to reports of antisemitic incidents on California campuses. The Regents’ “Principles” famously featured this landmark pronouncement: “Antisemitism, antisemitic forms of anti-Zionism and other forms of discrimination have no place at the University of California.” As former UC President Mark Yudof observed, this is the first time that a public university has said this. I was pleased to serve, together with the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Rabbi Marvin Hier, as one of two national antisemitism experts to the Regents’ Task Force. While the “Principles” may not be as specific and detailed as some of us might have liked, they have been a major step forward in public awareness of the forms that antisemitism takes in the 21st century. The AMCHA Initiative also deserves credit for this success.

2.
We Sue the American Studies Association

In April, the Brandeis Center’s legal team filed a landmark federal anti-BDS lawsuit against the American Studies Association (ASA). The complaint, which is still pending, seeks to enjoin the association’s infamous anti-Israel boycott. As Forbes columnist George Leef observed, “[W]hat people should not…be free to do is to dragoon non-profit scholarly associations into their political battles against Israel (or anything else for that matter). But that is just what has occurred with the stance taken by the American Studies Association in favor of boycotting Israeli universities.” One immediate result of the lawsuit: The underhanded tactics of BDS leaders have now come to light, as explained in this article by Harvard Law Professors Jesse Fried and Berkeley Law Professor Steven Davidoff Solomon. The firms of Marcus & Auerbach and Barnes & Thornburg also deserve credit for their central role in this litigation. In addition, we are pleased that members of the American Anthropological Association rejected a BDS resolution shortly thereafter, based in part on a desire to avert litigation. We recently warned the Modern Language Association that their proposed BDS resolution could subject them to liability as well.

3. Congressmen Admonish the Education Department

Also in April, after a member-level briefing with the Bipartisan House of Representatives Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism, eight members of Congress signed a letter to US Department of Education Secretary John King, Jr., urging the Department to address antisemitic bias on college campuses more effectively. Kudos to the Taskforce co-chairs: Reps. Nita Lowey (D-NY), Peter Roskam (R-IL), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Kay Granger (R-TX) and Steve Israel (D-NY). I was joined at the briefing by Hillel International President Eric Fingerhut and Melanie Goldberg, the founding student president of the Brandeis Center’s chapter at Cardozo Law School. The Task Force briefing laid the groundwork for reforms that would ultimately be written into the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act.

4. Anti-Israel Activists Shut Down Irvine Film and Harass Jewish Students

In May, UC Irvine undergraduate (and Brandeis Center client) Eliana Kopley found herself separated from the other Jewish students, physically blocked from joining them and then hunted down as she sought to escape. She had been attending a screening of the film, Beneath the Helmet, with other students. Dozens of anti-Israel protesters banged on the windows and doors of the building in which the film was shown, blocking the exit, and chanting, “Intifada, Intifada,” “IDF, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” “Displacing people since ’48, there’s nothing here to celebrate,” “F*** the police” and “All white people must die.” When Eliana left the building, three people followed after her until she fled to safety. At the Brandeis Center’s urging, UCI found its chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine responsible for violating UCI Code of Conduct § 102.13, which prohibits “disruption or obstruction of…University activities.” This was an important step, as was UCI’s issuance of a formal warning against SJP. In the future, UCI must do much more to address such problems. This will be especially important in light of the trend of anti-Israel activists attempting to disrupt and shut down pro-Israel speakers, films and events.


5. Mayor Nir Barkat Is Silenced at San Francisco State University

That same month, Mayor Nir Barkat of Jerusalem was scheduled to give a lecture at San Francisco State University at the invitation of San Francisco Hillel. Roughly two dozen anti-Israel activists disrupted the mayor’s presentation just a few minutes into the speech, entering the room and loudly chanting, “Intifada, Intifada, Long live the Intifada,” “From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will be Free” and, finally, “Get the hell off our campus!” After at least 40 minutes of loud chanting, the protesters succeeded in shutting down the event, cheering as Mayor Barkat left the room. The Brandeis Center, and other groups, urged Chancellor Lesley Wong to take action. Chancellor Wong promised to revise his university’s policies for addressing such protests, and to be more assertive about enforcement. Chancellor Wong must do more in the future.

6. BDS Activists Harass Milan Chatterjee

In September, UCLA Graduate Student Association (GSA) President Milan Chatterjee, a Hindu student, announced that he was transferring from UCLA Law School to New York University Law School as a result of harassment from anti-Israel student activists. They had harassed and threatened him for enforcing the GSA cabinet’s neutral stance on BDS. When Milan refused to back down, they tried to get him impeached. We joined the American Jewish Committee and others in advising him. Working with the Brandeis Center’s law school chapter, we wrote to the GSA Forum successfully opposing his impeachment. Nevertheless, it is understandable that Milan no longer felt comfortable at the institution in which he had served in a significant student leadership role. UCLA Law School’s loss is New York University’s gain. 

7. Oberlin College Fires Infamous Anti-Israel Professor

In November, Oberlin College announced that they would finally fire a notorious anti-Israel professor. We had strongly criticized Oberlin President Marvin’s Krislov’s initial failure to act in response to Karega’s antisemitic and anti-Israel social medias posts. In the wake of this controversy, Krislov announced his resignation. We visited the campus twice to deal with this situation and have had productive conversations with President Krislov, his staff and many Oberlin students and alumni. We wish Oberlin College, President Krislov and Oberlin’s many bright students and faculty well as they move beyond this debacle.

8. Ohio Passes Anti-BDS Legislation

In December, Ohio Governor and former Republican presidential candidate John Kasich became the 17th governor to sign an anti-BDS bill into law. The Ohio bill prohibits state agencies from contracting with any company that is boycotting or disinvesting from Israel. Brandeis Center Senior Staff Attorney Jennie Gross had testified in front of the Ohio Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee in support of the bill on December 6, and I had testified in support of the bill before the Ohio Assembly earlier in the year, together with Hillel President Eric Fingerhut. The Ohio Jewish Communities’ Howie Beigelman deserves great credit for this success.

9. The US Senate Passes the Antsemitism Awareness Act

Also in December, the US Senate displayed extraordinary bipartisanship in passing, by unanimous consent, the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2016. Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Bob Casey (D-PA) had introduced this landmark bill to combat increasing incidents of antisemitism on college campuses. The bill would direct the Department of Education to consider the State Department’s definition of antisemitism – which includes manifestations of antisemitic anti-Israelism – in determining the “intent” involved in alleged antisemitic incidents. The proposed legislation would adopt the primary public policy recommendation in my new book, The Definition of Anti-Semitism (Oxford University Press: 2015) and the briefing that we provided to the Congressional Task Force several months before. Unfortunately, time ran out before the House of Representatives was able to act on this bill this term, but we expect that it will be reintroduced next year.

10.  Law Students Stand Up to Campus Antisemitism

Throughout 2016, law students have fought-back more effectively against campus antisemitism than ever before. In March, Harvard Law Students formed the eighteenth (“Chai”) chapter of the Louis D. Brandeis Center.  They quickly established themselves with a number of speaker and panel events educating the Harvard community about the legal tools necessary to fight global antisemitism and anti-Israelism. The Brandeis Center remains the only national organization that establishes law school chapters to defeat antisemitism and anti-Israelism. However, these eighteen student chapters are now providing an increasingly effective counterweight to such anti-Israel organizations as Students for Justice in Palestine, Palestine Legal and the National Lawyers’ Guild. These students reflect our hope for the future.

AUTRICHE : UNE FEMME LISANT LA BIBLE POIGNARDEE PAR UN DEMANDEUR D'ASILE AFGHAN

31 déc. 2016, 16:02


© Stan Honda Source: AFP

Un migrant afghan a poignardé une chrétienne d’environ 50 ans qui lisait la Bible dans un logement pour demandeurs d’asile en Autriche. L’assaillant a clamé à la police qu’il l’avait attaquée en raison de «problèmes personnels».

Dans la commune de Timelkam, en Autriche, une femme et son mari ont été invités à lire la Bible dans un centre pour migrants par un de ses résidents chrétiens, ce qui a évidemment mis en colère le demandeur d’asile afghan. Quand il a entendu la femme commencer à lire la Bible, il est entré dans la cuisine où elle se trouvait et l’a poignardée avec un couteau à beurre. Heureusement pour la femme, elle portait un manteau d’hiver épais qui l'a protégée de blessures trop graves, mais elle s'est blessée à l'oreille en tombant en arrière.

L’auteur de l’attaque a été arrêté par la police. Il a justifié ses actes par des «problèmes personnels». Il a aussi avancé qu’il n’avait jamais vu sa victime auparavant.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY - THE RELIGIOUS BEAST SYSTEM AGENDA - THE FALSE CHURCH UNITED TO DESTROY THE TRUE CHRISTIANITY

UPF-USA HOSTS INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE


Written by Jeanne Castillo
Thursday, December 1, 2016

Washington, D.C., United States—More than 200 leaders from 54 nations attended an International Leadership Conference (ILC) which featured the launch of a parliamentarians’ peacebuilding association known as the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP).

The international and interreligious assembly, held from November 28 to December 1, 2016, was the culmination of other ILCs that were held worldwide this year, in South Korea, Nepal, Burkina Faso, the United Kingdom, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Zambia, and Japan.

With the theme “Addressing the Critical Challenges of Our Time: The Role of Government, Civil Society and Faith-Based Organizations,” the ILC was organized jointly by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and The Washington Times Foundation (TWTF), an affiliated organization.

The participants of the assembly, which was held in the J.W. Marriott hotel, included parliamentarians from around the world, members of the U.S. Congress, elected officials and civic, religious, policy and NGO leaders. During the four days of the conference these leaders would discuss the most pressing and challenging issues of our time, including global conflict, the breakdown of the family, and protection of the environment.

In line with the ILC’s goal of building a growing leadership network that can contribute to world peace, the participants reached across political and national lines in the search for solutions.

Richard de Sena, president of UPF-USA, acted as master of ceremonies at the opening banquet, during which leaders of UPF and TWTF expressed the goals and hopes for the conference: to forge a new era of principled leadership.

Tom McDevitt, chair of The Washington Times and of UPF-USA, encouraged networking and the exchange of “ideas that can shape nations, communities, families, characters and people.”

Dr. Ki Hoon Kim, regional chair of UPF of North America, gave a preview of the three remaining days of the conference, which would explore the critical challenges facing the world. “Our nations are at a turning point in history,” he said, “and the ideals and accumulated experience that you each bring to this gathering could very well set the course for many years ahead.”

Dr. Michael Jenkins, president of TWTF, listed the organization’s founding values of freedom, faith, family, service and citizenship, noting particularly the significance of family as the cornerstone of society, the common ground we all share, and the place where love is generated. He added that peace is born when the lines of race, culture, and religion are transcended. “How can we turn this corner and make sure this world becomes better and better?” he asked. “It takes every nation to build a better world,” he said, noting that “resentment will never be destroyed by force, but liberated by forgiveness.”

Dr. Thomas Walsh, president of UPF International, drew the connection between this conference, those that came before it, and the culminating launch of the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP) that would take place on November 30, “drawing together parliamentarians from all political parties and nationalities to form a global network that represents the people and every faith background.” He also invoked the guiding principle of unselfishness as the golden rule of peacebuilding.

 
Session I: Principles and Best Practices in Leadership and Governance

The first of nine panel sessions covered three key techniques of leadership that are critical in this time of history and generation of leaders. Each of the three panel members offered a perspective on best practices in leadership and governance.

MK Dr. Nachman Shai, a senior member of Israel’s Knesset, outlined the challenges currently faced by Israel, stressing the importance of leading with vision, courage, and accountability. He described the daily reality of conflict and the rise of terror in the Middle East, and the need for “strong, determined, and tough leadership.” The only democracy in the Middle East, Israel is revered as a major, stable power in the region and strives to “speak the language of values, democracy, human rights, and freedom,” he said.

Hon. Michael G. Aguinaldo, chair of the Commission on Audit of the Philippines, described successful initiatives under way in the Philippines that engage citizens to become part of the nation’s progress and improvement. Put in place by the previous administration in pursuit of institutionalizing open, transparent, accountable, and participatory governance, the Citizen Participatory Audit of the Philippines promotes partnership between citizens and government by forming an auditing team that assesses whether public services are delivered properly. This initiative “brings the process closer to the public so it’s something they can understand and take stock of” and increases community involvement and ownership, he said.

Sen. John Barrasso, the junior U.S. senator from Wyoming and a former orthopedic surgeon, spoke on the importance of democracy and freedom for the health of a nation and its people. If a nation has the principles of democracy, human rights, and freedom of speech in its leadership and governance, he said, “that’s helping you care for yourself.” He also   noted, “If you look at the system we have in the United States, the rules are known by everyone, but the outcome is uncertain. In some countries, the rules are unknown and the outcome is certain.”

Hon. Donzella James, a member of the Georgia State Senate, spoke on leading with courage and integrity, and balancing one’s personal values and identity with being open to new perspectives.

“It can be a slippery slope when you go against your values, even just once,” she said. “You don’t become successful in government without a strict sense of personal values. It is the lens with which we view the world, and influences every personal and professional decision we make.” She quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who said, “A genuine leader is not a searcher of consensus but a molder of consensus.” She continued, “However, as an elected official, your job is to serve everyone, not just those who agree with you. Ultimately, we cannot get anything done unless we work together and find the common denominator with people who believe differently than we do.”
 
Tuesday, November 29, 2016

In its first full day, the ILC discussed freedom of conscience, marriage and family, protecting the environment, and freedom and responsibility of the press.
Participants also took part in a much-anticipated highlight of the conference: the announcement of the recipients of the 2017 Sunhak Peace Prize, awarded to the person or persons who best contribute to human development in the spheres of stewardship of the environment and sustainable peace.

A theme resonating throughout the conference was the importance of engaging respectful dialogue across political and religious lines. “An overarching theme I’m hearing today is that it’s time we come together, and I think it’s particularly meaningful in the aftermath of the American election” said Hon. Bill Delahunt, a former U.S. congressman from Massachusetts, who was the moderator of Session IV. “We are at a moment when the country is divided. That’s not healthy for democracy, and if America is divided, it’s not healthy for the world. What we all realized during the course of the [recent U.S. election] campaign is that there are multiple Americas and large segments of the American population that have profound anger. We need to meet that challenge as well,” Mr. Delahunt said.

Another theme, highlighted by Ambassador R. James Woolsey Jr., a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was the need for action and the courage to face difficult issues, despite how uncomfortable or insurmountable they may seem. During lunch he gave a talk in which he invited participants to educate themselves on the threat of nuclear war. He delineated the severe consequences of such an event and expressed his hope for people to “wake up” to this issue. “We can’t duck hard problems” and “think it’s so unpleasant to work on because the consequences are so bad,” he said. According to Ambassador Woolsey, addressing this issue in a fruitful way “requires a certain spirit of rejection of the way this has been dealt with for decades.”
 
Session II: Securing Freedom of Conscience—A Universal Concern

Hon. Charles “Woody” Burton, a member of the Indiana House of Representatives and the driving force behind the “In God We Trust” state license plate, opened the second session by describing his experience of standing with resolve to protect freedom of speech and religion, specifically the right to practice prayer in government.

Professor Viktor Yelenskyi, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, presented historical facts and statistics demonstrating the gradual exile of religion from government and society, juxtaposed with a rising consensus that religion must be free to manifest itself in all social spheres. He summarized the state of religious freedom and peace among religions: “Historians estimate that 200 million people in the last two millennia have been killed because of religious affiliation,” he said. “Religious affiliation plays a role in 65 percent of all armed conflict today, and in only 20 percent of countries are all religious groups treated the same.”
Dr. Sam Zakhem, a former U.S. ambassador to Bahrain, expressed both positive experiences with and continued hopes for religious freedom and peace among religions. “I served as ambassador for the United States under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and served in the Colorado State Senate and House, but I’m most proud to be a UPF Ambassador for Peace,” he said.

Hon. Jose de Venecia Jr., a former speaker of the House of Representatives of the Philippines and chair emeritus of UPF, addressed the theme of interfaith reconciliation. He described his campaign to create an interfaith council in the United Nations that can generate ideas for ending violence in the Muslim world, as well as uniting civilizations that encompass multiple religions. “Territorial, geopolitical, and religious problems intertwine and remain a constant problem in many parts of the world,” he said, adding, “All too often, atrocities are committed in the name of religion. However, violence in the name of religion is contrary to reason and God’s nature, for there can be no religious motivation for violence.”

The session closed with a question-and-answer session. Conference participants presented thought-provoking questions to the panel, such as “What will it take to solve these problems peacefully?” “How do we talk about religion in America and highlight its role as a key source of love?” and “How do we bring religion back?” Among solutions discussed were bringing people together and encouraging a focus on similarities as well as dialogues toward reaching understanding and unity.
 
Session III: Why Marriage and Family Are Important for a Healthy and Stable Society

Hon. John Doolittle, a former U.S. congressman from California, moderated the third session, stating in his introduction that “we tend to idealize families, but they’re often less than ideal. However, the resilience of the family is important, even if the family is not ideal.”

Hon. Danny K. Davis, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Illinois, gave an insightful and anecdotal talk about the value of family, speaking of his own family with great reverence. Married for 47 years, Hon. Davis said he sometimes imagines “how different life would have been” if he had not had his wife by his side. “I wouldn’t have the peace of mind, companionship, or a shoulder to lean on,” he said. He supplemented his address with thought-provoking quotes from astute thinkers, including English poet William Blake. (“I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see. I sought my God, but my God eluded me. I sought my brother, and I found all three.”) He concluded that “the concept of family begins to grow as you have greater experiences, and, rather than thinking of just the immediate group in the household or even extended relatives, family becomes part of what you believe, dream about, and hope for.” In his call to action he stated, “I’m hoping to convince people to spend more time together as opposed to being apart.”

Hon. Victoria Kalima, a member of the Zambian Parliament who is also her nation’s newly appointed minister of gender, talked about Zambian society, laws, issues, and programs, drawing a parallel between signs of cultural instability and resulting national instability. She insisted that “relationships between husband and wife, parents and children, and brothers and sisters should be characterized by a profound and enduring love.” She also spoke about the recent ILC in Lusaka, Zambia, and its focus on alleviating social ills currently faced by the nation, including gender-based violence, child marriage, teen pregnancy, single parenthood, and divorce. She stressed the importance of programs that empower women, so that “society can look at a girl child as someone who can receive an education, not just get married young” for the family’s financial gain. “My appeal,” she said, “is that we work together to have a healthy and stable society. I invite you to partner with us through UPF to end gender-based violence and child marriage.”

Hon. Ek Nath Dhakal, former minister for peace and reconstruction in Nepal, boldly stated that “family education determines the future destiny of the entire nation.” Hon. Dhakal presented news of the marriage rededication and Marriage Blessing movements in Nepal, which are becoming national festivals of marriage and families attended by tens of thousands of people. The former prime minister of Nepal H.E. Madhav Kumar Nepal officiated a recent marriage rededication ceremony that was attended by 70,000 people; at the time he stated that “if the family is strong, our nation is strong.”

Mr. Kenneth Muhammed El, the commissioner of the Housing Authority in Rowan County, North Carolina, like Hon. Davis, spoke about his marriage and family, and then asked forward-thinking questions such as “How do we raise expectations of marriage?” and “How do we address the issue that ruin begins in the home?” He noted that our challenge as a nation is to elevate women and acknowledge women as the “key to life.” He said that “marriage needs to be dissociated from trends and fashions, and reinstated as a sacred extension of the Creator.”

Mrs. Cheryl Wetzstein, the manager of special sections for The Washington Times, closed the session with statistics and facts about family issues faced by the United States, including falling marriage rates, the “tsunami of pornography causing problems between men and women in their romantic relationships,” and alternative family forms. She provided evidence for why traditional marriage is the best family structure for children, adults, and society.
 
Session IV: Protecting Our Environment—Public and Private Sector Solutions

Hon. Rob Wittman, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia, opened the fourth session with a talk on the responsibility of both the public and private sectors to protect the environment for future generations. He expressed his interest in seeking opportunities for these two sectors to join in partnership in this joint mission.

Hon. Kessai Note, a former president of the Marshall Islands, described the fragile environment of his Pacific island nation and its susceptibility to sea level rises caused by climate change. Environmental negligence is “already creating insurmountable challenges to our environment, economy, and way of life,” he said. “The entire Marshall Islands could become submerged in water in less than 100 years, and neighboring countries in the Pacific have similar conditions.”

Dr. Richard Lindzen, a professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, took a different approach to the issue of climate change. He presented thorough scientific evidence that favors avoiding extremism in today’s campaigns on the greenhouse effect and global warming, and he relayed the perspective that the issue of global warming is “almost an entirely political one.”

“The most important and useful measure for both the public and private sphere will be the ending of anti-carbon-dioxide climate alarmism,” he said. “The fact that the alarm shifted from global cooling to global warming in the 1980s provides ample evidence that the issue was not with climate per se, but market control of the energy sector.”

Hon. Richard T. Schulze, a former U.S. congressman from Pennsylvania, told anecdotes about his lifetime of “pride, enjoyment, and love of the outdoors” and how he came to be involved in wildlife conservation. “In America, the conservation attitude is that the user pays and the public profits,” he said. “The amount of money that the hunter, fisher, and outdoorsman pay into the funds for outdoor conservation is enormous.” On a more emotional level, he told the story of a friend who came closer to his daughter in three hours of hunting together than he had in his entire life. “It’s not about the hunting,” he said. “It’s about the personal relationship that such things build, the kind of relationship that overarches politics and religious differences.” He closed by saying that the “most effective and sensible approach to good stewardship of the earth and its inhabitants is to continue the work we’ve done in conservation, not only for sports and the outdoors but for all people of the earth.”
 
Session V: The Role of Media—Freedom and Responsibility of the Press


Mr. Guy Taylor, a senior writer on national security issues at The Washington Times, moderated the final session of the day, about the media as the “absolute intersection of technological change and the human ability to speak truth to power.” He challenged participants to deliberate whether the media are having “a positive or a corrosive effect on our collective ability to provide honest journalism.”

Hon. Tim Huelskamp, a U.S. congressman from Kansas, gave his perspective on the U.S. media and the evolution of the Internet. He invited participants to practice an active awareness of the biases that exist in the mainstream media and to be mindful of the nature of the media in terms of their geographic concentration and motivations, and how those factors affect the distribution of information.

Hon. Biman Prasad, a member of Parliament in Fiji, enlightened participants on the reality of freedom of the press around the world. In many regions, he said, the media serve primarily to “amplify the voices of elected representatives in government.” He stressed that “democracy cannot flourish in an environment where media freedom is restricted.”

Mr. Humphrey Hawksley, a foreign correspondent with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) as well as an author, spoke about the role of the media in Europe, particularly the effects of uninformed popular sentiment promulgated through social media. He also spoke of “the post-truth era,” in which “political campaigns are based on facts that are untrue and policies that are unachievable, yet they garner votes in the millions.” He brought up the concept of an echo chamber, defined as “a newspaper or TV [station] that agrees with or bolsters your point of view.” He explained that “voters prefer the certainty of the echo chamber to the muddle of both extremities,” and he challenged the audience to “find a Tweet or somebody on Facebook whose views you totally abhor. Find out where they’re coming from and what their weakness is” in order to move beyond the safety of your own standpoint.

Mr. Charles Hurt, a political columnist for The Washington Times, closed the session by speaking to the role of the media, mainstream and non-mainstream, including everyone who is participating in this age of social media. He brought up thought-provoking ideas, such as the fact that the U.S. president-elect is very active on social media. “I have faith that people have a voice and greater access to shaping the media than ever before,” he said.
 
Sunhak Peace Prize Recipients Are Announced



During the dinner break, the names of the two individuals who have been chosen to receive the 2017 Sunhak Peace Prize were announced.

These two individuals, who have devoted their lives to helping the world’s refugees, Italian doctor Dr. Gino Strada and Afghan educator Dr. Sakena Yacoobi.

The awards program was presented by Dr. Thomas Walsh, chair of the Sunhak Peace Prize Foundation, who explained the background of the prize and its vision to inspire “living with a sense of responsibility that envisions making this world better for future generations.”

An informational video introduced the founders, the vision, and this year’s theme of the Sunhak Peace Prize: the global refugee crisis. The video presented alarming statistics, notably that one in 113 people in the world today is a refugee and that over half of refugees are children.

Dr. Il-Sik Hong, chair of the Sunhak Peace Prize Committee, announced the names of the 2017 laureates, who were chosen from a pool of 225 nominees from 76 nations.

Dr. Gino Strada has provided medical and surgical care to the victims of war and poverty and to refugees around the world. His achievements in advancing medical and surgical aid over the past 28 years are widely known. His work and compassion for humanity have taken him beyond national borders, even into the epicenter of conflict in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and Africa. His work has brought healing and relief to 8 million people around the world. Dr. Strada maintains that “the right to be cured” is a basic and inalienable human right, and, on that basis, in 1994 he established the international humanitarian organization known as Emergency, which has been operating more than 60 emergency medical facilities in 17 nations.

Dr. Sakena Yacoobi developed an innovative solution to the refugee settlement problem through education. She has been widely recognized for developing educational programs linked to refugee resettlement, working especially in Afghan refugee camps that are put under additional stress by years of war. Dr. Yacoobi is a committed educator who has devoted herself to women’s education. She has developed an innovative vision for education in the Islamic world, based on her belief that “educating girls is educating future generations.” In 1985 she founded the Afghan Institute of Learning, which provides education and health services for more than 13 million refugees. She also operates more than 80 underground schools in hopes of improving the rights and social status of women in Islamic society, working even at the risk of her own life. Presently she is actively assisting the international community, including the United Nations, as an expert in countering refugee crises. Her achievements led to her being nominated for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.

Dr. Hong said, “Today, facing the largest refugee crisis since World War II, the citizens of the world must remember the value of each human being, which binds us together. Through solidarity and cooperation we need to solve this problem together.”

Hon. Dan Burton, a former U.S. congressman from Indiana, led the audience in applause for the founders and the selection committee of the Sunhak Peace Prize, and spoke on the impact of this year’s award. “This world is in real turmoil right now,” he said. “We’ve got millions of people that have left their homes in fear for their lives.” He continued, “These two people who have been nominated tonight have gone way above and beyond to care for those who have become refugees. … It’s our responsibility to help these refugees around the world. It’s a tragedy, and we’re all involved.”

The prize includes a cash award totaling 1 million U.S. dollars. According to Dr. Walsh, “Both recipients have indicated that they will roll their prize money directly into their organizations and their work.” The awards ceremony will be held on February 3, 2017, in Seoul, South Korea.

The Sunhak Peace Prize Foundation was established in 2015 to promote and develop the Sunhak Peace Prize, an annual award given to individuals or organizations that have contributed substantially to peace and human development for the sake of future generations. The Sunhak Peace Prize was founded by UPF Co-Founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon to recognize key movers and shakers for peace who are leaving a lasting legacy and to honor selfless individuals who recognize family values as the cornerstone of society.

In 2016, the inaugural Sunhak Peace Prize was awarded to President Anote Tong of Kiribati for raising awareness about the global impact of climate change, and to Dr. Modadugu V. Gupta of India for being a leader in the development of aquaculture in developing nations.

In the evening of November 29, the conference participants attended a performance at the National Theatre by the world-renowned Little Angels Children’s Folk Ballet of Korea. This performance conveyed the peace-loving spirit of the Korean people and the beautiful culture and arts produced throughout Korea’s 5,000-year history. Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, co-founder of the Little Angels troupe, was present at the performance, as well as Dr. Sun Jin Moon, the chair of UPF International.

The Little Angels’ performance was held to benefit the Children’s National Hospital, located in Washington, D.C. At the end of the performance Dr. Ki Hoon Kim, the regional chair of UPF for North America, presented to the hospital a check for $25,000 on behalf of the founders of the Little Angels.

The panel discussions during the third day of the conference, November 30, focused on national and global security, foreign policy, solutions to terrorism, and global collaboration.
 
Session VI: Northeast Asia Issues and Solutions

A diverse range of views were expressed at this session, in which speakers addressed the issue of extremism and offered their expertise on the political landscape of Northeast Asia.
Mr. Hitoshi Tanaka, a senior fellow at the Japan Center for International Exchange and chair of the Institute for International Strategy at the Japan Research Institute, spoke of endeavors to discourage “North Korea’s nuclear ambition” and China’s activities to “revise the status quo” through a union between Japan, the United States, and South Korea. He observed that the “importance of the Japan-U.S. alliance has been increasing” and said he hopes the new U.S. administration “will solidify our partnership.”

Ambassador Joseph Robert De Trani, former special envoy to the Six Party Talks and president of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, spoke about his work in negotiations with North Korea and described that nation’s “extensive nuclear program,” an issue that “has to and can be resolved peacefully.” Ambassador De Trani encouraged perseverance in addressing this growing threat as well as the human rights issue in North Korea.

Hon. Matt Salmon, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona, described his experience living in and visiting Northeast Asia, and his recent involvement in hearings regarding the North Korean regime. He emphasized the importance of developing a “foreign policy consistent with our values and interests” in this new administration, particularly regarding the U.S. policy for Asia. He called for a “focus on strong leadership” and “strategic clarity” as the “basis for our goals abroad,” and also prescribed a “proactive approach” when it comes to addressing aggressors and building strong allies. Not only do we need to support like-minded allies, he said, but also we need to “encourage them to overcome historical obstacles to strengthen relationships with each other.”

Hon. Jong-seong Lim, a member of the National Assembly of South Korea, addressed the implications of the new Trump administration on the U.S.-Korean alliance, stating his hope that “we can have clear ideas of [incoming U.S. President Donald] Trump’s policies regarding the Northeast Asia region.” Over the past six years, South Korea and the United States have “forged an unbreakable bond,” he said, but there is a certain concern that “American interests will be placed ahead of other nations.” Hon. Lim urged that the U.S.-Korean alliance be strengthened and implored the ILC participants to partner with UPF to encourage this trend.
 
Session VII: Global and Local Responses to Terrorism

Mr. Bill Gertz, senior editor of the conservative Web site The Washington Free Beacon, moderated this panel. Speakers offered visions and practical steps toward unity on this issue.

Hon. Robert Pittenger, a U.S. congressman from North Carolina, spoke on the importance of courage and clarity when facing terrorism. “It’s easy to be complacent,” he said, “because we don’t know where we’ll be tomorrow.” He named practical components of an anti-terror strategy, including “stopping the flow of money,” developing “good intelligence on the ground,” and hosting forums around the world for “information sharing.” He concluded that “what we must do is collaborate together.”

Hon. Madhav Kumar Nepal, a former prime minister of Nepal, described the reality of the “disruption and damage of war” and stated that, fortunately, Nepal has “ended its state of insurgence by peaceful means” through a “comprehensive peace process.”

Hon. Dana Rohrabacher, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from California, recalled his experience fighting communism, the “threat to civilization” of his generation. Because the United States is made up of every race, religion and ethnic group and is united by a love of liberty, he said, “America understands that God gave us the job of leading the way in destroying enemies of civilization.” He noted that today’s primary threat to the peace and security of civilization is terrorism, and that again America is central to defending the safety of the world. “It’s up to the people of the United States, the government, to lead the way, because we represent humankind.”

MK Issawi Frej, an Israeli Arab member of Israel’s Knesset from the Meretz party, admitted that, as a Muslim, it’s “not easy” and “not comfortable” to hear people connecting terrorism to Islam. “Terrorism is the enemy of all of us,” he said. “In order to be a terrorist, you can be Muslim, Christian, Jewish, any religion.” He called on everyone to imagine if each Muslim had to “prove that he is not a terrorist,” and he encouraged everyone to “join each other to fight terrorism” and not to “fight hate with hate.”

Mr. Pinhas Inbari, a journalist and senior Middle East analyst for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, spoke about the nature of the conflict in Syria, and Hon. Shri Bhubaneswar Kalita, a member of Parliament in India, spoke of different forms of terrorism around the globe. Hon. Kalita stated that “the only answer to terrorism is dialogue for lasting peace” and that a “stronghold is not a long-term solution.” Because parliamentarians represent and connect people, they can help resolve and prevent conflict, he said.

The session activated several members of the audience to line up at the subsequent question-and-answer session and give their perspectives on terrorism.
 
Session VIII: Foreign Policy Priorities for the U.S. and Global Community

Hon. Jose de Venecia Jr., a former speaker of the House of Representatives in the Philippines and chair emeritus of UPF, opened the session by naming top issues in today’s world and proposing models of global synergy to address them. “We meet at the decisive juncture of American and world history,” a time of transformation that “will chart history’s course,” he said. Hon. Venecia described the Asian Parliamentary Assembly consisting of 40 members of Parliament, and his hopes for the organization to be “the frontrunner of an eventual Asian Parliament like the European Parliament.”

Hon. Jean M. Augustine, a former commissioner of fairness in the Canadian province of Ontario, described the nature of foreign policy in Canada. “The basis of what we do connects nicely with the work of UPF,” she said of her nation’s determination to work together with other nations, embrace the global community, and, currently, provide shelter and education to Syrian refugees. “Canadian participants at the ILC are happy to have this opportunity to dialogue and hear perspectives on issues,” she concluded.

Hon. Mark Meadows, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from North Carolina, closed the session with a talk on the change of the U.S. administration and provided insight into “what we could look forward to in terms of foreign policy changes.” He explained that there is a sense that the nation is becoming “isolationist in rhetoric,” but there is importance in “strong alliances and daily involvement in matters of mutual interest.” He added that he “[doesn’t] see that changing” and said that there is a “real commitment in a long-term, bipartisan way” to clarify foreign policy.
 
Launch of the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace

A bipartisan group of former U.S. congressmen—Dan Burton, R-Indiana; Bill Delahunt, D-Massachusetts; Todd Tiahrt, R-Kansas; and John Doolittle, R-California—invited colleagues from Capitol Hill to a reception in the Russell Senate Office Building on the evening of November 30, 2016. The event was held in honor of 56 legislators from nearly as many countries who had come to Washington to form a global organization of parliamentarians who want to work beyond the boundaries of partisanship to address pivotal issues involving terrorism, the environment, freedom of conscience and other pivotal issues common to all nations.

At the event, held in the Kennedy Caucus Room, Dr. Thomas Walsh, the president of Universal Peace Federation, introduced the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace and its co-chairs, Hon. Dan Burton and Hon. Jose De Venecia Jr., former speaker of the House of the Philippines. The two co-chairs lauded the organization’s purpose, calling for those who guide policy in their nations to look beyond their borders to their neighbors worldwide who have the same concerns as they do. “The world is a global community, and together we can make positive differences,” Hon. De Venecia said.

The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, who founded the parliamentarians association. She was introduced by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the president pro tempore of the U.S. Senate.

“Dr. Moon is truly an amazing woman, and one that I deeply respect,” Sen. Hatch said. “She is a champion of peace and someone who I hope will have a lasting impact for years to come.”

Dr. Moon spoke of the responsibility of global leaders to work together to create peace and called for a new and international commitment to unselfish good governance. She spoke of the challenges that have stood in the way of world peace throughout human history to this day, and introduced the proposal for an International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP). “We look at this world and see unspeakable, inarticulate misery happening all around the globe,” she said. “This is impossible to solve with mere human power.”

She concluded: “All of you esteemed leaders, members of parliament, beloved leaders who have gathered here, members of parliament from all over the world, your responsibility is great and important. You are extremely important, especially in this era when a new providence is unfolding. More than just one person, you who represent the people, you are the mediator. God needs each one of you.”

Following Dr. Moon’s remarks, Hon. Burton, Hon. Doolittle and Hon. Delahunt presented the ILC 2016 Exemplary Leadership Awards to Hon. Matt Salmon, a U.S. congressman from Arizona, for his efforts for peace and prosperity in the Asia Pacific region, and to Hon. Danny K. Davis, a U.S. congressman from Illinois, for his work for religious freedom and securing opportunity for all people.
 
Thursday, December 1, 2016

The fourth day of the conference had just one panel discussion before a final lunch and the departure of the participants.
 
Session IX: New Leadership and New Scenarios for Global Collaboration

Dr. Alexandre Mansourov, a professor of Asian Studies at Johns Hopkins University, began the last session by speaking of the United States’ transition into a new administration. He expressed his worry about the government’s blind spots—occurrences of low probability yet high impact. “These disruptive events shake and shift the international system and create a new world way,” he said, adding that, though it would be nice for people to remain in their comfort zones, it’s important to think about the future.

Hon. Matt Salmon, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona, commended UPF for its unparalleled “ability to be able to really achieve meaningful peace in this world” and to “bring disparate organizations, countries, parties and religions” together along the way. He also focused on the upcoming administration shift and foreign policy, stating his belief that “solidarity with our friends and allies … is incredibly important.” He closed by calling on politicians to not ignore the threat of terrorism.

Following Hon. Salmon’s talk, Mr. Tom McDevitt, chair of The Washington Times, read and presented a plaque to Hon. Salmon which honored him with the Excellence in Leadership Award for working to bridge the gap between Asia and the United States.

Dr. Thomas Walsh, president of UPF International, then remarked on his observation of “a strong tendency in a growing interfaith movement, a movement of receptivity, and a desire to learn without feeling threatened from other faith traditions.” On the one hand, he said, “Some people are becoming almost hybrid in their spirituality, of being a Christian who has felt enriched by Buddhism”; on the other hand, “we also feel that in many traditions there is some erosion, dilution, or threat through secularization, as well as other forms of evangelism that are threatening our identities.” He stated UPF’s goal in easing these conflicts—specifically that the ILC is moving in a direction “where we’re learning from one another.” He encouraged participants to engage in ongoing conversations between people of varying political standpoints, different faiths and backgrounds, and to find common ground to create harmony.

Professor Akiko Yamanaka, vice minister of foreign affairs in Japan, spoke on the “trilateral alliance between the U.S., Japan, and Korea” and the key role of “preventative diplomacy” in combating “human-induced disaster.” She concluded her message by quoting Aristotle, who said, “It is more important to organize peace than to win a war, but the fruit of victory will be lost soon if the peace is not well organized.”

“Let’s walk and work together for the better world community together,” she said.

Hon. Joe Wilson, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from South Carolina, spoke on the importance of facing international terrorism. He described his military background and the collaboration of one of his units with Afghan troops to fight terrorism. “That’s the kind of service that we need—where it’s not telling people what to do, but it’s working with our allies around the world to make a difference,” he said.

Hon. Richard T. Schulze, a former U.S. congressman from Pennsylvania, gave brief remarks, speaking of his first visit to Congress for a class trip during the Ford administration. Hon. Jose de Venecia Jr., co-chair of the ILC, then closed the session with recommendations for future collaboration, calling for “a session to see how we can advance causes of freedom and democracy, human rights, and our common battle against poverty and ISIS, and the forces of bio-level destruction.”

HEZBOLLAH  : L’ARCHEVÊQUE CAPUCCI A CONSACRE SA VIE POUR LA PALESTINE, L'OCCUPATION INTERDIT SON INHUMATION AL ALQUDS

Israël considéré comme étant l'occupant. Que cet archevêque aille se faire enterrer sur le côté palestinien! Il devrait être avec ceux qu'il dit avoir servi ou être auprès des membres de sa famille décédée.

Depuis 22 heures 3 janvier 2017


  L’archevêque Hilarion Capucci

Liban - Moyent-Orient - Spécial notre site

Le Hezbollah a rendu un fervent hommage à Mgr Hilarion Capucci (94 ans),  l’archevêque grec-catholique émérite de Jérusalem Al-Quds, décédé le 1er janvier 2017 à Rome.

« la Palestine et la Nation arabe ont perdu un fervent militant du peuple palestinien et qui a lutté pour le recouvrement de ses droits. L’archevêque Capucci a consacré sa vie pour la liberté de la Palestine et de son peuple », a-t-il indiqué dans un communiqué publié lundi, le Hezbollah.

« M.Capucci a coopéré avec les libres et les militants de notre nation dans le but de libérer les lieux saints de l’occupation sioniste », a poursuivi le texte.

Et d’ajouter : « l’archevêque Capucci a oeuvré dans le but d’unifier les efforts de notre nation afin de parvenir à la libération de la Palestine. Il n’a raté aucune occasion pour soutenir la voie de la résistance au Liban, en Palestine et dans d’autres endroits de notre monde ». = un bon militan islamique...

Le Hezbollah a conclu son communiqué en présentant ses condoléances les plus sincères à la famille du militant Capucci, au peuple palestinien résistant et à toute notre nation qui a perdu un fervent défenseur de ses droits et de ses constantes.

L’occupation interdit l’inhumation de Capucci à Jérusalem

Par ailleurs, les forces d’occupation israélienne ont interdit l’inhumation de Mgr Capucci à Jérusalem AlQuds occupée, comme il l’avait recommandé.

Le correspondant d’AlManar en Italie a rapporté que son corps arrivera  jeudi à Beyrouth. Il sera inhumé près de sa mère dans la localité libanaise de Sarba. = N'est-ce pas là qu'est sa place, auprès de sa famille?

IS A SCARY PROPHECY WRITTEN IN 1907 ABOUT OBAMA COMING TRUE 5 DAYS BEFORE TRUMP INAUGURATION?



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHWacCYJUhU&feature=share


Ajoutée le 4 janv. 2017


In 1907, a book was published called "Lord of the World." This book is about the a U.S. Senator named Julian Felsenburgh, who quickly ascends to become "President of the World." Felsenburgh has unusual parallels with Obama including that they are both U.S. Senators, both charismatic speakers, and both have visited Paris for major conventions. Felsenburgh visited Paris and presided over a peace treaty as Europe spiraled into chaos. There was rioting in the streets, people dying, and protests, yet Felsenburgh quells all of it with his promise of peace. Last year, a major convention was organized surrounding the hoax known as climate change. This was nothing more than a reorganization of the world toward a new order. It was not about the climate.

Now, Obama appears to be pulling the strings behind a push for peace among Israel and Palestine. Firstly, he instructed Samantha Power at the U.N. to abstain from a vote condemning Israel for building settlements. Secondly, he orchestrates a Paris convention involving 70 countries gathering together to discuss peace in the Holy Land and a two-state solution. The catch is that neither Israel nor Palestine will be at the meeting. They will be completely removed from direct conversation with the 70 countries. Perhaps a two-state solution will be accomplished without Israel of Palestine present.

The move to have a major convention about solving one of the world's greatest land conflicts just five days before a president leaves office is unprecedented. Why Obama would decide to do such a thing is not known. Nonetheless, he will send Kerry, likely Samantha Power, and an entire American delegation to Paris. Julian Felsenburgh also did the same thing when he signed a peace treaty.

In the novel, Lord of the World, we also meet another character named Father Francis, a Roman Catholic who leaves the church and joins Felsenburgh's new world religion. This religion is a combination of mother goddess worship and Freemasonry. Felsenburgh is, himself, a 33 year old Freemason who hates organized religion, especially Christianity. After he takes power, he orders Christians to be killed if they do not renounce their faith.

We should be questioning if a 1907 prophecy is coming to life right now. Several people, including a former pontiff, have suggested that "Lord of the World" is a prophecy in the form of a narrative. Pope Benedict 16 called the novel prophetic, while Pope Francis encouraged people two read it. He stated that the book portrayed the transition of the world toward the "globalization of hegemonic uniformity." He neglects to tell the audience that this uniformity is achieved through great violence, death, and destruction carried out by the Antichrist, Julian Felsenburgh.

PALESTINIANS THANK UN FOR GIVING THEM PERMISSION TO MURDER JEWS

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was more than just a carefully-orchestrated slap in Israel’s face by outgoing-US President Barack Obama.
It was a trigger, intentional or not, for renewed bloodshed.

The resolution essentially supports the Palestinian interpretation of Security Council Resolution 242, namely, that Jews have no right to live in any part of the so-called “West Bank,” including the eastern half of Jerusalem.

Several of those who authored Resolution 242 back in 1967 have stated that they intentionally did not demand that Israel surrender all the territory it captured in the Six Day War.

But the Palestinians and Israel’s other detractors don’t see it that way. And Resolution 2334 has just given them a major boost.

Most worrying is that Palestinian groups see it as approval for their violent struggle (read: campaign of terror) against those Jews who dare defy the international community by settling in their biblical heartland.

This was demonstrated by none other than Fatah, the political movement of “moderate” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Fatah boasts many violent logos and political cartoons. One depicts the entire Land of Israel colored as a Palestinian flag and being used to stab the word “settlement.” Following the passing of Resolution 2334, Fatah reissued that picture, adding the words “Thank You” above a list of the 14 nations that voted in favor (the US, which abstained in the vote, was left out).

“Fatah is saying more Israelis will pay with their lives as a result of the UN resolution,” explained Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli NGO that monitors and analyzes local Arab media.

Perhaps that was Obama’s intention. Perhaps it wasn’t. But either way, it once again demonstrates that the “wisdom of this world” (1 Cor. 3:19) cannot undo God’s plans. It can only lead to more suffering.

SA TOUTE-SAINTETE BARTHOLOMEE Ier, PATRIARCHE OECUMENIQUE : LE PATRIARCHE DE LA SOLIDARITE

Message qui va exactement dans le même sens que celui prononcé par l'UFP, le Ier décembre 2016

http://www.upf.org/conferences-2/187-international-leadership-conferences/7…
 
Bartholomée Ier (en grec: Βαρθολομαίος Α') - Dimítrios Arkhontónis à l'état civil - est le primat actuel de l'Église orthodoxe de Constantinople depuis le 2 novembre 1991. Il porte le titre d'« archevêque de Constantinople, nouvelle Rome et patriarche œcuménique », il est le successeur de l'apôtre André :roll: , « premier parmi ses égaux » (primus inter pares) par rapport aux dirigeants des Églises orthodoxes. De nationalité turque, il appartient à la petite minorité grecque de ce pays.

Le patriarche considère la cause de la défense de l'environnement comme faisant partie de sa mission religieuse. Cet engagement lui vaut le surnom de « Patriarche vert ». Il a reçu le prix Sophie en 2002. Il a également reçu, le 3 mars 2010, à Monaco, le prix de la Fondation Cardinal-Paul-Poupard, des mains du président émérite du Conseil pontifical de la Culture et du Dialogue inter-religieux, en présence du prince Albert II (un haut degré dans la Franc-Maçonnerie) . Ce prix couronne l'action du patriarche en faveur de l'environnement et de la protection de la nature.

Version française publiée le: 29 décembre 2016
Par Marianne Ejdersten*

Il a été surnommé le «patriarche vert», car cela fait au moins 20 ans qu’il aborde les questions environnementales préoccupantes depuis au moins vingt ans dans son rôle de responsable religieux. En 2008, le magazine Time a classé Sa Toute-Sainteté Bartholomée Ier, patriarche œcuménique, parmi les 100 personnes les plus influentes du monde pour «avoir défini l’écologie comme une responsabilité spirituelle». = Un autre sataniste influent déguisé en bon berger et qui va de l'avant avec l'agenda de Laudato Si' du Pape François et des Jésuites mais dont on a nullement entendu parler durant toutes les rencontres internationales sur l'environnement qui ont eu lieu, ces dernières années.

Une des ruses de tout ce programme sur l'environnement est d'étendre le pouvoir de l'Empire romain sur toutes les nations et de raviver toutes les traditions païennes et tous les rituels qui y sont associés. Cette reconnaissance passe par l'UNESCO, via la liste des biens immatériels et culturels, alors que le christianisme est banni de plus en plus car considéré comme une religion haineuse et donc dangereuse pour la Paix dans le monde.

Et malheur à celui ou celle qui ose s'opposer à tout ce qui se met en place de par le nouvel ordre établi. Selon le Pape, nous péchons lorsque nous refusons de croire à ce qui se met en place. Nous sommes des conspirateurs et un danger pour le système.  Les grands problèmes de la planète, les guerres, et tout leur baratin, on le connaît par coeur.

De là pourtant se met en place les lois de l'inquisition qui ne sont plus qu'histoire du passé. Nous y sommes encore une fois et bien vivant.
Toutes les églises (les filles de Rome) sont appelées à s'unir pour lutter contre le terrorisme et l'hérésie et à travailler à l'unisson afin de sauver la planète de ses méchants habitants.

Ne voyez-vous pas tout le danger pour le peuple de Dieu qui va de l'avant dans tous les pays? Dans un article en anglais, même les palestiniens remercient l'ONU pour lui avoir donné l'autorisation de tuer les juifs, du fait de la reconnaissance de Jérusalem comme étant un état palestinien. Ne voyez-vous pas ce qui se met en place pour le peuple juif, non seulement en Israël mais dans le monde entier?

Il est bien évident, de par la lecture de ce document, qu'il travaille main dans la main avec Rome et le Conseil mondial des Eglises et que leur agenda est le même. Rappelons-nous, également, sa visite en Antartique, il y a quelques mois à peine, là où se trouve bien des secrets et des rituels reliés aux monde spirituel occulte et nazi. Ils ont un même esprit, l'esprit de Caïn, un même langage et une même espérance : le retour de leur dieu Lucifer.


Le patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier, chef spirituel suprême du monde chrétien orthodoxe et personnalité transnationale d’importance mondiale, joue un rôle de plus en plus essentiel. Il a déployé des efforts considérables pour organiser le Saint et Grand Concile de l’Église orthodoxe en Crète cette année. De plus, il continue à promouvoir la liberté religieuse et les droits humains, à œuvrer pour la tolérance entre les différentes religions du monde, et à travailler en faveur de la paix internationale et de la protection de l’environnement :roll: . Il est cité, à juste titre, parmi les plus grands visionnaires, artisans de la paix et tisseur de liens au monde, et comme apôtre de l’amour, de la paix et de la réconciliation. :roll:

Archevêque de Constantinople et patriarche œcuménique depuis 25 ans

Le patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier, archevêque de Constantinople, a accordé un entretien spécial au centre de presse du Conseil œcuménique des Églises (COE). La discussion s’est déroulée en partie au Patriarcat œcuménique d’Istanbul, début décembre, lorsque le pasteur Olav Fykse Tveit, secrétaire général du COE, s’est entretenu avec le patriarche Bartholomée. La rencontre coïncidait avec la célébration de ses 25 ans en tant qu’archevêque de Constantinople et patriarche œcuménique.

Nous nous retrouvons chez lui, dans son bureau, une pièce accueillante aux couleurs vives, remplie de livres et d’icônes. Cette pièce raconte la vie de Sa Toute-Sainteté. Il nous accueille chaleureusement, nous propose du café et des gâteaux, nous mettant tout de suite à l’aise.

Le patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier est né en 1940 sous le nom de Dimítrios Arkhontónis, sur l’île d’Imbros (aujourd’hui Gökçeada, en Turquie). En octobre 1991, il a été élu 270e archevêque de l’Église fondée il y a 2000 ans par Saint André, et a reçu le titre d’archevêque de Constantinople, nouvelle Rome et patriarche œcuménique.


Q: Votre Toute-Sainteté participe aux activités du Conseil œcuménique des Églises depuis de nombreuses années, en tant que membre de la Commission de Foi et constitution, mais aussi en tant qu’ancien élève de l’Institut de Bossey. Quels sont les événements du mouvement œcuménique qui vous ont le plus marqué, personnellement?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Il est vrai que je participe aux activités du Conseil œcuménique des Églises depuis le tout début de mon ministère. J’ai ensuite été membre de son Comité central et de son Comité exécutif, membre de la Commission de Foi et constitution pendant 15 ans, et vice-président de cette même Commission pendant huit ans (1975-1983). J’occupais d’ailleurs ce dernier poste au moment de l’élaboration du document Baptême, Eucharistie, Ministère sur lequel l’influence orthodoxe a été importante. En tant que représentant ou chef de la délégation du Patriarcat œcuménique, j’ai également participé à trois assemblées générales du COE: à Uppsala (1968), à Vancouver (1983) et à Canberra (1991).»

«Lors de mes études de premier cycle, j’avais déjà rencontré l’Église catholique romaine à Rome et à Munich, mais également les Églises protestantes et plus généralement, le mouvement œcuménique à Bossey, avec de très grands théologiens comme Nikos Nissiotis. Je dois d’ailleurs cette formation à mon vénérable prédécesseur, le patriarche œcuménique Athénagoras Ier qui a ouvert les esprits et les cœurs des jeunes séminaristes et ecclésiastiques du Phanar aux relations et au dialogue inter-chrétiens.»

«Transformer les ténèbres en lumière»


Q: Notre monde évolue rapidement. Nous traversons des moments difficiles, mais le croyant sait que le Seigneur est présent et actif dans le monde. Aujourd’hui, quel est le plus grand défi pour une vie de foi et pour la proclamation de l’Évangile?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Nous traversons en effet une période difficile, et même sombre, où il est complexe de déceler la présence du Christ au milieu des troubles qui agitent notre monde. Nous sommes témoins de douleurs et de souffrance, mais aussi souvent d’incertitude et d’hostilité, tout autour de nous. Pour un chrétien, il est tentant de juger et de condamner le mal évident qui règne dans la société et dans le monde. Pourtant, ce serait une réaction simpliste et contre-productive. Pour nous, chrétiens, le défi consiste à ne pas perdre de vue le Christ afin de transformer les ténèbres en lumière, le désespoir en espoir, et la souffrance en réconciliation.»

«Je me souviens de la prédication de feu le métropolite Méliton de Chalcédoine, le jour de mon ordination au diaconat, il y a 55 ans: "ne quittez jamais des yeux le Seigneur transfiguré, a-t-il dit, transmettez toujours cette lumière qui ne faiblit jamais pour personne." Voilà ce que nous devons faire lorsque nous proclamons l’Évangile aujourd’hui. Sommes-nous si perturbés par les troubles et l’agitation qui nous entourent que nous prenons peur et perdons de vue notre approche spirituelle? Discernons-nous le visage du Christ chez nos frères et sœurs, lorsque nous voyons des centaines de milliers de personnes persécutées et poussées à chercher refuge parmi nous? Ou choisissons-nous de construire des murs de défense, des murs qui excluent, des murs qui font de l’autre une menace?»

«Les étrangers accueillis à notre table?»

Q: La crise des migrants semble préoccuper l’Europe et durera de nombreuses années. Mais elle a également créé un clivage au sein des Églises entre celles qui s’inquiètent des menaces pour leur identité, et celles qui sont plus accueillantes. À une époque qui met l’accent sur la diversité, comment Votre Toute-Sainteté voit-elle évoluer le projet d’unité? Quel espoir percevez-vous?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Dans l’Église orthodoxe, la conception théologique de Dieu est une image de Dieu comme rencontre et communion, comme hospitalité et inclusion. C’est pourquoi l’icône traditionnelle du Dieu-Trinité est une représentation de trois étrangers sous la forme d’anges accueillis par Abraham sous le chêne de Mamré, comme le décrit le chapitre 18 de la Genèse. Il ne les a pas vus comme un danger ou une menace pour ses habitudes ou ses biens. Au contraire, il a spontanément et ouvertement partagé avec eux son amitié et sa nourriture.»

«C’est en récompense de cette hospitalité désintéressée qu’Abraham se vit promettre ce qui semblait impossible, à savoir la multiplication de cette semence d’amour pendant des générations, malgré la stérilité (littéralement) de sa femme. Avons-nous tort d’espérer que notre volonté de dialogue et de coopération entre peuples aux convictions religieuses différentes et variées permette également la coexistence, apparemment impossible, de l’humanité entière dans un monde en paix? Combien d’étrangers seront accueillis à notre table?»

«Dans un document officiel intitulé "La mission de l’Église orthodoxe dans le monde contemporain", le Saint et Grand Concile de l’Église orthodoxe qui s’est déroulé en Crète, en juin 2016, a écrit: "l’Église orthodoxe pense qu’il est de son devoir d’encourager tout ce qui est mis réellement au service de la paix et qui ouvre la voie vers la justice, la fraternité, la véritable liberté et l’amour mutuel entre tous les enfants de l’unique Père céleste, ainsi qu’entre tous les peuples qui constituent une seule famille humaine. Elle compatit à tous ceux qui, dans différentes parties du monde, sont privés des biens de la paix et de la justice."»
«Ouvrir l’horizon sur un monde diversifié»

Q: Votre Toute-Sainteté a organisé le Saint et Grand Concile en juin. Quel a été le plus important résultat de cet événement pour l’Église orthodoxe et pour l'ensemble du mouvement œcuménique?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «En effet, ce fut une grande bénédiction d’avoir l’honneur d’organiser le Saint et Grand Concile de l’Église orthodoxe en Crète (juin 2016), avec l’accord de Leurs Béatitudes les primats des Églises orthodoxes autocéphales. Ce grand événement historique a démontré l’identité conciliaire de l’Église orthodoxe et a souligné l’âpre lutte menée pour préserver cette identité au-delà des intérêts nationalistes.»

«À ce sujet, j’exprime ma profonde satisfaction devant le fait que le Saint et Grand Concile ait décidé de maintenir l’ouverture œcuménique et les dialogues bilatéraux de l’Église orthodoxe, car l’inverse aurait représenté un retour en arrière et un repli sur soi en ces temps difficiles et troubles. Ce n’est pas le dialogue qui menace notre identité, mais au contraire le rejet du dialogue et l’auto-enfermement stérile. C’est précisément la raison pour laquelle nous avons toujours encouragé le dialogue interreligieux avec le judaïsme et l’islam qui permet d’obtenir des résultats tangibles pour la réconciliation mondiale et pour cette cause sacrée qu’est la paix.»
«Ce rassemblement sans précédent de nombreuses Églises en Crète "a ouvert notre horizon sur le monde contemporain diversifié et multiforme [et] a souligné que notre responsabilité dans l’espace et le temps est toujours dans la perspective de l’éternité." (Message final.) Comme le précise l’encyclique officielle du Saint et Grand Conseil, l’Église "témoigne dans le dialogue".»

«Acquérir un cœur compatissant»


Q: Votre Toute-Sainteté pense-t-elle que la peur soit l’outil le plus dissuasif contre la pollution de l’environnement?

Le patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier a écrit: «nous ne devrions pas être obligés de modifier nos comportements envers l’environnement à cause de la peur de catastrophes imminentes dues aux changements climatiques. Nous devrions plutôt le faire car nous reconnaissons l’harmonie du cosmos et la beauté originelle qui existe dans le monde. Nous devons apprendre à sensibiliser nos communautés et à adopter des comportements plus respectueux envers la nature. Nous devons acquérir un cœur compatissant, ce que Saint Isaac le Syrien, un mystique du VIIe siècle, appelait «un cœur qui brûle d’amour pour l’ensemble de la création: pour les humains, les oiseaux et les bêtes, pour toutes les créatures de Dieu".»

Bartholomée Ier a organisé huit symposiums internationaux et interreligieux, ainsi que de nombreux séminaires et sommets pour résoudre les problèmes écologiques des rivières et mers du monde. Ses initiatives lui ont valu le titre de «patriarche vert» ainsi que plusieurs prix environnementaux importants. À présent, l’Accord de Paris a été signé, et les Églises se sont engagées à œuvrer pour la justice climatique.

Q: Comment envisagez-vous l’avenir du travail œcuménique pour l’environnement? Quelle est la vision de Votre Toute-Sainteté concernant la voix du christianisme dans la transition nécessaire vers un avenir durable?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Je suis ravi que l’Accord de Paris ait été signé par un très grand nombre de pays. En effet, j’ai participé aux premières étapes des préparations de la COP 21, à l’invitation du gouvernement français. Dans ce cadre, j’ai accompagné le président Hollande aux Philippines et j’ai participé à un sommet interdisciplinaire à Paris avant la Conférence des Parties en décembre 2015. D’un côté, la 22e Conférence des Parties à la Convention-cadre des Nations Unies sur les changements climatiques de Marrakech mérite d’être célébrée. Mais d’un autre côté, elle nous rappelle malheureusement que 197 pays viennent seulement de ratifier une convention adoptée lors du Sommet de la Terre de Rio, en 1992

«Vingt-deux ans, c’est une période beaucoup trop longue pour répondre à la crise environnementale, notamment lorsque l’on sait qu’elle entretient des liens étroits avec la pauvreté, les migrations et les troubles à l’échelle mondiale. Quel prix sommes-nous prêts à payer pour le profit? Combien de vies sommes-nous prêts à sacrifier pour un gain matériel ou financier? Et à quel prix renoncerions-nous à la survie de la création de Dieu? Vingt-deux ans plus tard, il est plus que temps pour nous tous de voir les visages des êtres humains qui subissent les conséquences de nos péchés écologiques.»
«De plus, comme je l’ai souvent rappelé, "nous sommes tous dans le même bateau". Les changements climatiques ne concernent pas une nation, une race ou une religion en particulier. Nous ne pouvons répondre aux exigences et à l’ampleur des changements climatiques que lorsque nous assumons ensemble nos responsabilités de croyants et de citoyens.»

«Promouvoir l’unité chrétienne»

Q: Nous lisons également le texte d’une «lettre encyclique du patriarche œcuménique aux Églises orthodoxes autocéphales sœurs du Conseil œcuménique des Églises» de 1952. Que signifie cette lettre aujourd’hui pour l’Église orthodoxe?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Cette lettre encyclique aux Églises orthodoxes autocéphales sœurs a été écrite en 1952, c’est-à-dire lors des premières étapes, les plus fondamentales, de la création du Conseil œcuménique des Églises, avec le souhait d’encourager les Églises orthodoxes à participer aux activités du COE alors que la méfiance et l’hésitation régnaient, ce qu’elle a réussi à faire lors de la Troisième Assemblée du COE à New Delhi (1961). Elle est rédigée dans le même esprit que les récentes décisions du Saint et Grand Concile de l’Église orthodoxe. L’Église orthodoxe ne met pas en avant un aspect de sa foi aux dépens d’un autre. Elle cherche toujours à maintenir l’équilibre sacré, mais fragile, entre la foi et la constitution, la doctrine et la discipline, la croyance et les actions.»

«C’est pourquoi, dans son document concernant "les relations de l’Église orthodoxe avec l’ensemble du monde chrétien", le Saint et Grand Concile affirme sa conviction que l’Église orthodoxe "croit fermement, dans sa conscience ecclésiale profonde, qu’elle occupe une place prépondérante pour la promotion de l’unité chrétienne dans le monde d’aujourd’hui." De plus, les Églises et évêques assemblés reconnaissent que cet engagement "émane du sentiment de responsabilité et de la conviction que la compréhension mutuelle et la collaboration sont essentielles pour ne pas créer d’obstacle à l’Évangile du Christ".»

«Contribution de l’Église orthodoxe au Pèlerinage de justice et de paix»

Q: D’après Votre Toute-Sainteté, quel défi majeur le Conseil œcuménique des Églises doit-il relever? Comment le COE peut-il continuer à être utile pour les Églises membres et l’ensemble du mouvement œcuménique? Et que peut nous enseigner votre Église dans le cadre du Pèlerinage de justice et de paix?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Le Conseil œcuménique des Églises a été fondé sur la proclamation de l’unité des confessions chrétiennes dans leur foi trinitaire tout en affirmant les différences de ses Églises membres. Il est donc important de maintenir et d’équilibrer ces deux pôles: reconnaître les principes essentiels de la foi chrétienne, tout en respectant les enseignements fondamentaux et les traditions particulières de chaque Église. Il est toujours tentant, mais aussi dangereux, de conserver un aspect de ces pôles tout en reprochant aux défenseurs de l’autre d’entraver le processus de réconciliation.»

«Au cours du Saint et Grand Concile, les Églises et les hiérarques ont échangé, parfois avec fougue, mais toujours de manière constructive, sur le travail important du Conseil œcuménique des Églises, et en particulier de la Commission de Foi et constitution. Le document sur "les relations de l’Église orthodoxe avec l’ensemble du monde chrétien" souligne l’engagement des Églises orthodoxes pour promouvoir l’unité chrétienne tout en contribuant "par tous les moyens dont elles disposent à la promotion de la coexistence pacifique et de la coopération portant sur les principaux enjeux socio­politiques".»

«Le mouvement œcuménique n’est pas un "rajustement interconfessionnel" mais nous permet de respecter notre obligation d’unité chrétienne sans nous éloigner "de la vraie foi de l’Église une, sainte, catholique et apostolique". C’est pourquoi, ce même document du Concile conclut: "Dans cet esprit, l’Église orthodoxe considère qu’il est important que nous les chrétiens, inspirés par les principes fondamentaux communs de l’Évangile, essayions de donner une réponse empressée et solidaire, basée sur le modèle idéal par excellence du nouvel homme en Christ, aux problèmes épineux que nous pose le monde d’aujourd’hui." Cela pourrait être la contribution unique et précieuse de l’Église orthodoxe au Pèlerinage de justice et de paix.»

«Insuffler l’Esprit de Dieu»

Q: Pouvez-vous décrire le mouvement œcuménique en utilisant des termes qui parlent à la jeune génération?

Patriarche œcuménique Bartholomée Ier: «Votre question contient les prémisses et la promesse de ma réponse. Le mouvement œcuménique n’est pas une allégeance idéologique ou un engagement social. Ce n’est pas une conviction politique ou du militantisme international. C’est un mouvement, et ça doit le rester. Cela signifie qu’il doit toujours être animé et dynamisé par le souffle de l’Esprit de Dieu qui doit brûler dans nos cœurs et dans nos vies. C’est cet Esprit qui réunit tous les aspects de la vie des Églises et leur donne un sens. Ainsi, c’est ce même Esprit qui explique notre engagement envers les principes et traditions de notre religion, et qui illumine notre capacité à "discerner les esprits de notre époque" et notre responsabilité de porter le témoignage de l’Évangile de manière prophétique.»
«Paradoxalement, nous ne voulons pas conseiller la jeune génération ou lui faire la morale. Sur de nombreux aspects, les jeunes ont plus à apprendre à l’ancienne génération sur l’ouverture, la douceur, le pardon et la générosité. Je recommanderais peut-être à la jeune génération de rester fidèle à elle-même malgré les forces et les efforts importants déployés pour discriminer et diviser.»

«Le mouvement œcuménique conserve une utilité dans notre monde si nous revenons aux principes fondamentaux de l’Évangile: aimer son prochain, nourrir ceux qui ont faim et accueillir l’étranger.»

FRANCE : UNE CRECHE INCENDIEE DANS UNE EGLISE : C’EST FORCEMENT LA BÊTISE…

C'est ça, la bêtise! :roll: Et si on parlait de la guerre contre le christianisme, même si cette fête est loin d'être une fête chrétienne, mais les goyens, eux n'y comprennent rien, mais cela sert ceux qui travaillent à la destruction du christianisme. Bientôt, ce ne sera pas seulement le petit "Jésus" de la crèche qui se fera brûlé, mais des milliers de personnes qui ont mis leur confiance en tous ces prêtres de BAAL et qui ont fait entrer l'ennemi dans leur temple, sous le dialogue interreligieux.

 Hier


La crèche de la cathédrale de Saint-Étienne (Loire) a été détruite vendredi 6 janvier, jour de l’Épiphanie, par un incendie volontaire.

Georges Michel
Colonel à la retraite 

La crèche de la cathédrale de Saint-Étienne (Loire) a été détruite vendredi 6 janvier, jour de l’Épiphanie, par un incendie volontaire. Le feu aurait été mis à la paille par une ou plusieurs personnes. Jusqu’à présent, l’on comptabilisait les voitures brûlées le soir de la Saint-Sylvestre – tradition désormais bien établie en France.

Devrons-nous, désormais, ajouter l’incendie des crèches des églises à la liste de ces coutumes festives de fin et de début d’année dans notre pays ? En effet, le 8 décembre 2016, jour de l’Immaculée Conception, c’était la crèche de l’église Notre-Dame de Metz qui était incendiée, rappelons-le.

Pour l’instant, on ne sait rien sur les auteurs de ce délit puisqu’il n’a été procédé à aucune interpellation. On ne sait rien mais le maire LR de la ville sait déjà beaucoup de choses : « Nous devons nous interroger collectivement sur le sens de ce type de méfait où la bêtise le dispute à l’ignorance de ces auteurs. » Donc, M. le maire sait que, derrière cet acte, il y a la bêtise et l’ignorance. Forcément.

À titre de comparaison, lorsque le 26 décembre dernier des tags antisémites avaient été découverts sur les murs de l’école Anne-Frank de Montreuil, pas à un seul instant l’hypothèse n’avait été émise que ces graffitis pussent être l’œuvre de la bêtise et de l’ignorance. Forcément.

À Saint-Étienne, acte antichrétien ? On n’en sait rien, mais cela semble d’ores et déjà impensable. Tout au plus le maire parle d’une profanation, mais en prenant toutes les précautions oratoires qui s’imposent : « Comme toute profanation de tout lieu de culte et quel qu’il soit, cet acte est inadmissible. » Et, évidemment, en atténuant immédiatement son propos par l’évocation de la bêtise et l’ignorance.

Les grandes orgues de l’indignation ne déploient par leur faste comme cela, aujourd’hui, en France. Autrefois, il y avait les enterrements de 1e, 2e et jusqu’à la 6e classe. Aujourd’hui, c’est un peu pareil pour l’indignation. Une église catholique profanée, pour avoir droit à la première classe, c’est-à-dire aux tweets, communiqués d’un ou plusieurs ministres, voire du premier d’entre eux, il faut y mettre le paquet, le flagrant délit est requis. Je ne vous parle même pas du supplément, le nec plus ultra, je veux parler du déplacement in situ, toutes affaires cessantes, d’un ou plusieurs ministres. Le gros bourdon des valeurs de la République ne se met pas en branle comme ça non plus – qu’est-ce que vous croyez ! – pour faire entendre ces mots qui, à force, c’est vrai, sonnent tout de même un peu creux : « inqualifiable », « abject », « odieux », « intolérable », « acte qui ne restera pas impuni »… Tous ces fastes sont réservés aux œuvres et pompes de la bête immonde, pas de la bêtise.

Du reste, ne perdez pas votre temps à aller voir ce que le ministre de l’Intérieur, chargé des Cultes, aurait pu tweeter pour cette malheureuse affaire de crèche. Je l’ai fait pour vous. Rien. Si – ironie d’un soir et du sort : un tweet posté vendredi à 17 h 00, à peu près à l’heure où a été commis l’incendie, pour évoquer les vœux de François Hollande aux autorités religieuses.

Le communiqué de l’évêque du lieu, Dieu merci, « ouvre le champ des possibles », comme on dit parfois dans le jargon jargonnant : « Laissons la police faire son enquête afin qu’elle définisse s’il s’agit d’une bêtise d’adolescent ou d’un acte de malveillance. » La malveillance d’un adolescent est possible aussi, tout comme la bêtise d’un vieux. Mais bon, mettons…

En tout cas, un mot semble exclu à Saint-Étienne : christianophobie.

ABBAS’ ADVISOR ON RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS: IF THE US MOVES ITS EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM IT IS  “A DECLARATION OF WAR ON ALL MUSLIMS ”

"Behold, a day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward. And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. ..."
Zechariah 14/1-21

Friday sermon in presence of PA Chairman Abbas

Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "The new American administration intends to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem. In a simple, calm, and rational manner, in clear words that need no explanation and which are unambiguous: Such a step, for every Muslim, is a declaration of war on all Muslims. It's a declaration of war on all Muslims. We are no one’s enemies, and we do not want to be. We are not enemies of the US and we do not want to be. However, when something harms our faith and our existence, we cannot stand by and do nothing. We will not agree to this under any circumstances. This will not pass in silence... The entire Muslim world will not accept it, and the entire Christian world will not accept it. Occupied Jerusalem is our eternal capital, the capital of our existence and the capital of our state. In politics there can be compromises here and there... In politics there can be negotiation. However, in matters of religion, faith, values, ethics, and history, there can be no compromises. Therefore, it isn't possible to compromise on or negotiate over Jerusalem. This of course does not mean that we will prevent anyone from considering Jerusalem their direction of prayer. Our Jerusalem will remain open to all believers as it has been. Open to all of the monotheists."

POLEMIQUE SUR LES PROPOS DE VINCENT PEILLON, COMPARANT LE SORT DES MUSULMANS DE FRANCE A CELUI DES JUIFS SOUS L'OCCUPATION

Moi, je veux bien croire que les musulmans sont persécutés, mais pas par ceux qu'on tente d'accuser, qui eux, voient le jeu qui se joue. La persécution vient de tout de trafic humain des migrants, qui sont abusés et qui sont obligés de venir détruire nos pays. Ils sont, tout comme leur famille des pions de ce grand cheval de Troie, qui seront détruits sous la croisade qui suivra par ceux-là même qui les ont fait entrer, car la situation se sera grandement détériorée. C'est le paysage qui se met en place dans tous les pays avec les lois de la Sharia qui seront devenues obligatoires pour tous sous le joug religieux de Rome et de ses hybrides églises qui appellent tous au retour des dieux de l'Antiquité.  



Jan 04, 2017 

Le candidat à la primaire de la gauche Vincent Peillon s’est expliqué, mercredi 4 janvier, sur les réseaux sociaux pour mettre à la polémique.

La veille, il avait comparé la situation actuelle des musulmans avec celle des juifs sous l’Occupation.

« Ce qu’ont vécu les Juifs sous Vichy ne saurait être banalisé d’aucune façon », a réagi Vincent Peillon après la polémique sur ses propos prononcés au cours de L’Entretien politique de France 2, mardi 3 janvier, où il a comparé le sort des Juifs sous l’Occupation et la situation actuelle des musulmans de France.
twitter-tweet a écrit:


J'ai voulu dénoncer la stratégie de l'extreme-droite qui utilise les mots de la République pour les détourner contre la population
— Vincent Peillon (@Vincent_Peillon) January 4, 2017




Le candidat à la primaire de la gauche avait déclaré lors de l’émission politique : « Certains veulent utiliser la laïcité – ça a déjà été fait dans le passé – contre certaines catégories de population, c’était il y a 40 ans (en réalité dans les années 40) les Juifs à qui on mettait des étoiles jaunes » a indiqué Vincent Peillon sur France 2.

Vincent Peillon a ajouté que « c’est aujourd’hui un certain nombre de nos compatriotes musulmans qu’on amalgame souvent avec les islamistes radicaux ». « C’est intolérable », a-t-il conclu.

« De telles déclarations ne servent que ceux qui cherchent à réécrire l’Histoire », selon le Crif.

Le Conseil représentatif des institutions juives de France (Crif) a demandé mercredi 4 janvier « une clarification et un correctif immédiat » au candidat à la primaire de la gauche.

Dans son communiqué, l’organisation dénonce l’instrumentalisation de « l’histoire de la déportation de plus de 75.000 Juifs, de la spoliation des biens juifs ou des lois discriminatoires comme le port de l’étoile jaune », qui ne saurait être « dévoyée et instrumentalisée au nom d’un soi-disant équilibre des souffrances ».

Réactions en chaîne sur Twitter

Les propos de Vincent Peillon ont provoqué de vives réactions sur les réseaux sociaux, notamment de la classe politique. Dans un tweet, le Front National a conseillé au candidat socialiste de « réviser son histoire ». Par ailleurs, des politiques ou militants de droite, comme de gauche, y sont aussi allés de leur commentaires. « La laïcité n’a jamais mené au port de l’étoile jaune », pouvait-on lire ainsi sur le compte Twitter des Jeunes avec Valls. Le sénateur Les Républicains des Hauts-de-Seine, Roger Karoutchi, a quant à lui dénoncé une faute « grave ». = Et surtout, la France n'a jamais été laïque, mais catholique-maçonnique. La terre d'ISIS...

BIOGRAPHY OF JESUIT MISSIONARY TO CHINA PROVIDES EXEMPLARY MODEL OF EVANGELIZATION


-----

Xavier and Ricci

3The 16th century ministries of Francis Xavier in Japan and Matteo Ricci in China are well known. Large numbers of people were Christianized. We do not know how much of the gospel they really understood, but it is certainly true that many were ready to be killed for their loyalty to Christ.3

‘In this classic, Matteo Ricci and the other Christian missionaries to China truly come alive, reminding all of us that the heart of the New Evangelization still resides in going out of ourselves and boldly proclaiming the loving mercy of Christ, no matter the cost

January 6, 2017ZENIT Staff Books and Book Reviews


WIKIMEDIA COMMONS - Kircher

A new edition of the book, The Wise Man from the West by Vincent Cronin, is the amazing story of the famous Jesuit missionary priest to China, Fr. Matteo Ricci.  He arrived in China in 1582 and died there twenty-eight years later, having developed a deep knowledge of and love for the country, the culture and the people. For this, Fr. Ricci was revered as a “Wise Man” by the Chinese

Before Ricci’s heroic mission, China was an unexplored land bordering on the vague, mysterious Cathay, and the West was no more than a rumor to the learned Mandarins, a distant unknown region lying beyond the bounds of geography. In the person of Father Ricci these two worlds met, and Vincent Cronin dramatically recreates the romance, the crossed purposes, and the potential tragedy of that meeting. He shows us ancient China, the timeless state, with a civilization older than that wherein Christianity first found expression. Because Ricci loved this civilization and honored it, he was able to teach his strange new Christian doctrine with tact and sympathy. He carried much of the technological and philosophical wisdom of the late Renaissance Europe, and thus found favor among the Mandarins, the men of learning who enjoyed high status at the Imperial Court. He learned Chinese to discuss with them the problems in science and technology, and also questions of religion and the hereafter. He lived as a great scholar among great scholars and left behind him a memory worthy of the Christian faith he served.

   

Well researched and written with an enchanting style, Cronin relied almost entirely on contemporary material only recently assembled, including Father Ricci’s own letters and reports, and his account of China written in Peking before his death. The seed of Faith was sown and the crop, even after a century of atheistic communism, continues to grow in present-day China.

Fr. James V. Schall, S.J., the author of the Foreword of this book, writes, “Matteo Ricci was, by any standards, an extraordinary man. One concludes from reading this riveting book just how pertinent Ricci remains to both modern China and to the Church, ever ancient and ever new.”

The Wise Man from the West is “a delightfully told story of a truly remarkable man,” says Rodney Gilbert of the New York Herald Tribune.

Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., the host of EWTN Live, says, “The binoculars of history have brought his life into focus so that Chinese and Western Christians can appreciate both his wisdom and his sanctity and see that both are worthy of emulation. This book focuses us today on someone who may be canonized at last and teach us his brilliant ways to evangelize.”

“In this classic, Matteo Ricci and the other Christian missionaries to China truly come alive, reminding all of us that the heart of the New Evangelization still resides in going out of ourselves and boldly proclaiming the loving mercy of Christ, no matter the cost,” says Fr. David Meconi, S.J. of St. Louis University.

About the Author:
Vincent Cronin (1924-2011), was a British historical, cultural, and biographical writer, well-known for his many historical biographies and for his two-volume history of the Renaissance. Acclaimed for his scholarly and elegantly written works, he was as one of the finest popular historians of his generation, best known for his biographies of Louis XIV, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, Catherine the Great, and Napoleon.

"The Japanese and Vietnamese Catholics whose martyred bones are to be seen in St. Paul’s Church, Macau are anonymous, but their devotion to Christ under severe persecution should be remembered. Wherever Portuguese and Spanish conquerors went, priests went with them. Under the Spanish the Philippines became a Catholic nation."

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS HAS RISEN FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR

January 12, 2017 by CNA Daily News



Washington D.C., Jan 12, 2017 / 03:18 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Global persecution of Christians has risen for the fourth year in a row and is on a “rapid rise” in Asia, the advocacy group Open Doors UK warned on Wednesday in its annual report on Christian persecution.

“Religious nationalism is sweeping the globe according to figures released today as part of the Open Doors 2017 World Watch List,” said Lisa Pearce, CEO of Open Doors UK & Ireland.

“Persecution levels have been rising rapidly across Asia and the Indian subcontinent, driven by extreme religious nationalism which is often tacitly condoned, and sometimes actively encouraged, by local and national governments.”

On Wednesday, the group Open Doors released its annual World Watch List on the state of global persecution of Christians. The list ranks the countries where the worst persecutions of Christians are taking place based on information gathered from field workers and “independent experts.”

Open Doors was founded in 1955 by a Dutchman named Brother Andrew who smuggled Bibles into Communist Eastern Europe. Since then, the organization has grown to aid Christians in 50 countries by sending them Bibles and other needed materials, and speaking out for their well-being.

Overall persecution of Christians has risen from last year, Open Doors UK noted, stating that “Christians are being killed for their faith in more countries than before.”
“Christians living in these countries need the support of their family, the body of Christ, to help them stand firm in their faith,” they stated.

Pakistan had the most fatal attacks against Christians, “even more than Northern Nigeria,” the report noted. Mexico also saw a violent spike in the killings of 23 Christian leaders in 2016, including the abductions of several priests. The country has seen 15 priests killed since the election of current President Enrique Pena Nieto in 2012.

For the 16th consecutive year, Communist dictatorship North Korea was determined to be the “worst place on earth for Christians,” Open Doors UK said. There are 300,000 Christians amidst the population of 25.4 million.

Christians there suffer from a totalitarian police state that closely monitors their actions and requires them to worship the ruling family, the report said. They must pray privately. Those discovered by the state to be Christian may end up in harsh labor camps where an estimated 50-75,000 Christians currently suffer.

“Every day was as if God was pouring out all ten plagues on us simultaneously,” revealed one Christian women who was held captive in the camps but escaped.

“That’s how hard it was. But God also comforted me and brought a secret fellowship into existence. Every Sunday we would gather in the toilets and pray.”

All top 10 countries with the worst persecution of Christians are in Asia and Africa. Somalia ranks second on the list, followed by Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, and Eritrea.

Somalia, ranked the second-worst country for persecution of Christians, “has persecution levels nearly as high as in North Korea,” Open Doors UK noted.

“Islam is Somalia's state religion and all Christians come from a Muslim background,” they explained, meaning that for converts to Christianity, if their conversion is discovered, it can mean persecution and even a “rushed beheading.”

“If a Christian is discovered in Somalia, they are unlikely to live to see another day,” Lisa Pearce stated. There are only hundreds of Christians in the country with a population of over 11 million.

At least 12 Christian converts were killed in Somalia in 2016, the report said. The country is ruled by a “tribal system” and is “basically lawless,” which means that entities like the militant group al-Shabaab can “persecute Christians with impunity.”

Afghanistan is number three on the list, another tribal country where being a Christian is illegal. The Islamic republic of Pakistan is fourth, where more Christians were recorded as killed for their faith in 2016 than any other country. There are almost 4 million Christians there amidst the population of over 196 million.

An estimated 700 Christian women and girls were abducted in 2016, many of them raped and forced to marry Muslim men. The country’s strict blasphemy laws – which carry a death sentence – enable mob violence against Christians and accusations of blasphemy committed with impunity.

Persecution of Christians has had a disturbing increase in Asia, Open Doors noted, including in the world’s second-most populated country of India where there are 15 attacks against Christians every week, and probably more than that number since some attacks are not reported by fearful victims.

There were “at least ten” abductions of Christians there in 2016, ten rapes of Christian women, and over 800 physical attacks on Christians, the report said. Laos, Bangladesh, and Vietnam have also seen greater persecution of Christians by religious nationalists.

In the Middle East, Christians have been “caught in the crossfire” of wars in Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. “The Saudi-backed civil war in Yemen has reduced the country to a waste land, with many Christians caught in the crossfire, such as the 16 people killed in an attack on a Christian care home for the elderly and disabled,” the report said.

Other problems of persecution include Islamic extremism in sub-Saharan Africa, and attempts to destroy the homes of Christians who have been driven away by violence, in the hopes that they permanently resettle elsewhere.

DONALD TRUMP EXPOSES CHRISTIAN GENOCIDE AND DEFENDS CHRISTIANS  - PLEASE SHARE

Do you really believe that Trump will do something for the christians when he said that he will stand to defend the catholic church of Rome and we all know that the catholic church is the one who murder christians all around the world? We all know who create ISIS but his only words is to fight this terrorist group. Trump is not a true believer. Do your own investigation.

RISE OF XENOPHOBIA IN EUROPE CAUSED BY LOSS OF CULTURAL IDENTITY - EXPERTS

© Sputnik/ Eduard Erben Europe 06:18 16.12.2016(updated 08:59 16.12.2016)

A panel of academics in London have detailed the rise of xenophobia and Islamophobia within Western Europe by identifying three areas of concern, including the issue of Muslim identity in the public space, a crisis of white privilege, and the breakdown of neoliberalism.

"I would go as far to say, that before the early 1990s, there were no Muslims in Great Britain, or in many parts of Western Europe. And by that I mean that the idea of being a Muslim in the public space just did not exist. There was a clear racial order where the indigenous population had a dominating white state of mind — and pigmentation — and there were pockets of growing ethnic minority communities who conducted their faiths and practices amongst themselves," Professor Salman Sayyid, from the University of Leeds in UK, told the conference.

Speaking at The Rise of Xenophobia and Islamophobia in Europe conference in London, Professor Sayyid added: "In 1990 the global protest against author Salman Rushdie's 'Satanic Verses' book was seen as one of the largest mobilizations of people by Muslims. In a wider UK climate of a trade union crisis, economic recession and a disgruntled working class, this was the first sign of the Muslim public presence that society became wary of."

According to Sayyid, Muslims in Europe and outside of the continent's borders are thought of as a 'problem' beyond the popular trope detailing a fear of ethnic minorities and refugee communities taking over Western values and culture. When these refugees and migrants happen to be Muslims, the problem is magnified.

Dr. Alekandra Lewicki, from the Free University of Berlin, provided analysis of parallels from Germany with trends across Western Europe: "Racism in Germany has been prevalent for some time but now it has been diverted into a mainstream political movement by the likes of the right-wing Alternative For Germany populist party. There has been a significant rise in racism and xenophobic attacks on mosques over the last few years in particular, and the public perception — that it has all been triggered by the refugee crisis — is not very accurate. In my opinion, inhibition has been lost and holding right-wing, hateful views has been legitimized by populist politics," Lewicki said.

Dr. Farid Hafez, a researcher at Salzburg University in Austria, provided input on the trends emerging in his geographical region.

"Austria has a strong far-right movement and what we are also seeing here is the very modern rise of a new style of right-wing populist politics. Similar to countries such as Germany, and also in wider western European countries such as Belgium, Sweden, and France, racism and xenophobia has always existed, but now it has been manipulated to reach extreme levels. We have also seen signs of unusual far-right alliances with some fringe Zionist movements — who also perceive Islam as a threat in Europe to fight against," Hafez told the conference. Hafez suggested that there has been a significant failure by central parties in Austria who have been unable to provide an alternative worldview to the dissolving identity of their European Union nation-states. The notion of what it means to be British, Dutch, German or French has become blurred, he opined, resulting in a major identity crisis. Populist movements have become the only choice for people seeking real change.

Sayyid elaborated on the identity crisis of indigenous communities in Western Europe.

"In the US we have had a black president. In the UK we have just seen elected an ethnic, Muslim mayor, and these become justifications to claim that society is no longer racist. Farage is not racist if you ask him, he claims to be defending white, British cultural values. The far-right movements also claim they are not racists, but are defending white privilege. So Islamophobia and xenophobia has been conditioned by the crisis of what it means to be white in a society where everyone wishes for equality," he told Sputnik. When asked what the panel felt is the proper response to the rise of vicious cases of abuse and hateful attacks in public settings, Sayyid responded, "Collective action and mobilization is difficult, especially amongst minority communities who may also see other levels of sectarian or cultural divisions amongst themselves. In Islam itself, there is significant diversity and so any collective consciousness is remarkable, if it exists. We must also remember that the rise in hate crimes associated with those who hold xenophobic views doesn't just affect Muslims and ethnic minorities, it affects all of society."

" The only response is for progressive movements to organize and to resist the divisive right-wing movement . All historical transformations have been a struggle, and we are now very much in the midst of a very new state of struggle," Sayyid told Sputnik.

KNOW YOUR ENEMIES

1"Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer."
1 Peter

Both parties are under control but these groups (satan's army) will be use by the devil and his mignons to bring the great persecution against the ones who share God's values and real Peace, Justice under the unity of Jesus-Christ. On the other side, you have Donald Trump who says that he wants to fight against ISIS when we all know who create them and to make America great again. Be prepare, we are going to move in a new direction that many have never expect to see in their life time.
