I understand immediately what you mean, Albert. You try to slowly inform your wife of the errors of the Evil people of this planet, but the MSM she watches has her in its grip.
I don’t get my news from the pathetic MSM; rather, I get it all from the Internet - the 20th Century version of the Gutenberg Press. Anybody who still believes all the lies of the talking heads, in my opinion, is a brain-dead zombie.
The greatest threats to world peace are Israel, the USSA/UK and NATO (The North Atlantic Terrorist Organization).
Does your wife ever use a computer at home? If so, she should go right to Br. Nat’s website and read the transcript of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD; or, better yet, click on to the video and listen to his talk on this subject.
The good news is, more and more people here are waking up - albeit, late .. but waking up late is better than remaining asleep in their stupor.
There are lots of good articles in Jeff Rense’s website to choose from.
Truly a very powerful Video — sorrowful, evocative, and poignant.
Had me on the verge of tears.
It is quite fitting for Orthodox Holy Week and the Passion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Today is the Great and Holy Thursday.
As the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese writes:
On Thursday of Holy Week four events are commemorated: the washing of the disciples’ feet, the institution of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony in the garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas.
At the Mystical Supper in the Upper Room Jesus gave a radically new meaning to the food and drink of the sacred meal. He identified Himself with the bread and wine: “Take, eat; this is my Body. Drink of it all of you; for this is my Blood of the New Covenant” (Matthew 26:26-28).
We have learned to equate food with life because it sustains our earthly existence. In the Eucharist the distinctively unique human food - bread and wine - becomes our gift of life. Consecrated and sanctified, the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ.
The Synoptic Gospels have preserved for us another significant episode in the series of events leading to the Passion, namely, the agony and prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; Luke 22:39-46).
Although Jesus was Son of God, He was destined as man to accept fully the human condition, to experience suffering and to learn obedience. Divesting Himself of divine prerogatives, the Son of God assumed the role of a servant. He lived a truly human existence.
Though He was Himself sinless, He allied Himself with the whole human race, identified with the human predicament, and experienced the same tests (Philippians 2:6-11; Hebrews 2:9-18).
The moving events in the Garden of Gethsemane dramatically and poignantly disclosed the human nature of Christ. The sacrifice He was to endure for the salvation of the world was imminent.
Death, with all its brutal force and fury, stared directly at Him. Its terrible burden and fear - the calamitous results of the ancestral sin - caused Him intense sorrow and pain (Hebrews 5:7).
Instinctively, as man He sought to escape it. He found Himself in a moment of decision.
In His agony He prayed to His Father, “Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee; remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what thou wilt” (Mark 14:36).
His prayer revealed the depths of His agony and sorrow. It revealed as well His “incomparable spiritual strength (and) immovable desire and decision…to bring about the will of the Father.”
Jesus offered His unconditional love and trust to the Father. He reached the extreme limits of self-denial “not what I will” - in order to accomplish His Father’s will.
His acceptance of death was not some kind of stoic passivity and resignation but an act of absolute love and obedience.
In that moment of decision, when He declared His acceptance of death to be in agreement with the Father’s will, He broke the power of the fear of death with all its attending uncertainties, anxieties and limitations.
He learned obedience and fulfilled the divine plan (Hebrews 5:8-9).
Judas betrayed Christ with a kiss, the sign of friendship and love. The betrayal and crucifixion of Christ carried the ancestral sin to its extreme limits.
In these two acts the rebellion against God reached its maximum capacity. The seduction of man in paradise culminated in the death of God in the flesh. To be victorious evil must quench the light and discredit the good.
In the end, however, it shows itself to be a lie, an absurdity and sheer madness. The death and resurrection of Christ rendered evil powerless.
On Great Thursday light and darkness, joy and sorrow are so strangely mixed. At the Upper Room and in Gethsemane the light of the kingdom and the darkness of hell come through simultaneously.
The way of life and the way of death converge. We meet them both in our journey through life.
In the midst of the snares and temptations that abound in the world around and in us we must be eager to live in communion with everything that is good, noble, natural, and sinless, forming ourselves by God’s grace in the likeness of Christ.
Tonight sometime after midnight, Christ prays in the garden of Gethsemane. Betrayed by Judas Iskariotes for 30 pieces of silver, Jesus is arrested towards the end of the 3rd Watch by the high priestly authorities and a large band of the Temple police, identified by Judas and his treasonous kiss.
Crossing the Kidron Valley, the armed throng escorts Christ to face the kangaroo court of the Great Sanhedrin presided over by the High Priest Caiphas held in the Chamber of Hewn Stones located on the north wall of the Temple proper.
Here, the Great Sanhedrin will rubber stamp what was already decided by them weeks before–that Jesus must die.
Tomorrow at dawn, after being beaten and mocked by the Temple police with the Great Sanhedrin’s tacit approval, Jesus will be escorted to the Praetorium in Fortress Antonia to stand before Pontius Pilate, who found Jesus innocent of any crimes against Rome, particularly that of treason and fomenting rebellion against Rome.
The Roman military police kept a very close watch on any Judaean or Galilean prophet or preacher who drew large followings, because of their decades of experience dealing with zealot false messiahs and their fanatical cults. Pilate, after three years of field intelligence knew that Jesus Christ did not speak against Rome or fomented uprisings and rebellion, which was confirmed by King Herod Antipas.
When Pilate made his pronouncement, the mob of Jews and their Sanhedrin leadership howled for His blood and demand His execution. Then Christ, the most innocent Just One, is crucified like a common criminal and messianic zealot robber on Great Friday.
The GOA writes:
On Great Friday the Church remembers the ineffable mystery of Christ’s death. Death -tormenting, indiscriminate, universal - casts its cruel shadow over all creation.
It is the silent companion of life. It is present in everything, ready to stifle and impose limits upon all things. The fear of death causes anguish and despair. It shackles us to the appearances of life and makes rebellion and sin erupt in us (Heb 2.14-15).
The Scriptures assure us that “God did not make death, and He does not delight in the death of the living, for He created all things that they might exist … But through the devil’s envy death entered the world” (Wisdom 1.13-14; 2.24).
The same divinely inspired author also writes, “God created man for incorruption and made him in the image of His own eternity- . But ungodly men by their words and deeds summoned death” (Wisdom 2.23; 1.16).
Death is an abomination, the final indignity, the ultimate enemy. It is not of God but of men. Death is the natural fruit of the old Adam who alienated himself from the source of life and made death a universal destiny, whose very fear perpetuates the agony of sin.
“It was through one man that sin entered the world and through sin death, and thus death pervaded the whole human race” (Rom 5.12).
The day of Christ’s death is the day of sin. The sin which polluted God’s creation from the breaking dawn of time reached its frightful climax on the hill of Golgotha. There sin and evil, destruction and death came into their own.
Your poetry, dear +BN, struck a melancholy chord in my heart over Jewmerica’s rapidly decomposing society and moral state seen in the strange mixture of light and dark of Gethsemane, very fitting for our Holy Week leading up to the triumphant and glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who became our Pascha — our Passover.
And then I run across news like this which gives me a lift because there are still good, decent, morally indignant Christian men who stand up for truth, right, and justice in the face of evil Jewmerica:
Syria Free Press: Virginia State Senator Richard Black visiting Homs, Damascus:
“What happened in Syria was a planned action by intelligence agencies from Western powers, United States, Saudi Arabia, Turkey” ~ [Reports, Video]
Virginia State Senator Richard Black in a statement following his arrival in Damascus (SANA)
( youtu.be/A-pxDhYmJsw )
Virginia State Senator Richard Black:
…“I’m very proud to be here with the people of Syria, the people of Syria are very heroic. It is incredible. I believe that someday when this war is over, history will record that a country of 23 million courageous people had such strength and unity that they were able to combat the major powers of the entire world” …
…The gunmen who have been supported by the United States, France, Britain, NATO, the European Union, and the Gulf states have utterly destroyed civilization. In their desire to topple the one secular free nation in the Middle East, they have caused utter destruction and devastation throughout the Middle East”…
…“What happened in Syria was not a domestic issue; but it was planned, it was a covert action by a number of intelligence agencies, from Western powers, from Saudi Arabia, from Turkey, all led by the Muslim Brotherhood”…
U.S. Senator Black Richard Black to al-Laham: “I will be the voice of Syria in America”
Speaker of the People’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham discussed during a meeting with U.S. Senator for the State of Virginia Richard Hayden “Dick” Black the latest political developments in the region and the efforts exerted in combating terrorism, in addition to the unfair economic blockade imposed on the Syrian people.
Black said that what is happening in Syria nowadays affects the future of civilizations in the world, noting that although Syria is a small country, it’s a central country in the region, considering that if Syria would lose the war, there would be serious repercussions on civilization and humanity in general.
Black said that Russia’s intervention in the war against terrorism caused great changes, adding that he’s reassured about the result of the war waged by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorists.
The Senator pointed out that as soon as he returns to the United States, he will work towards organizing discussions in the Congress in order to change the prevailing view about what is happening in Syria, and that he will seek to reopen the Syrian Embassy there, adding “I will be Syria’s voice.”
He also stated that the steadfastness of a country like Syria in the face of all American, European, and Arab Gulf powers is “a miracle from God.”
In turn, al-Laham stressed that Syria is combating terrorism and extremism on behalf of the whole world, and that victory over the armed terrorist organizations is a victory for civil values, stressing the for decision-making establishments in the world to realize the reality of who is funding and arming terrorism and put an end to this.
Al-Laham added that many countries participate through deliberate policies or erroneous ones in spreading extremism, chaos, and terrorism, adding “we in Syria believe that the United States is not serious about combating terrorism despite the coalition that it leads against ISIS, a coalition which did not achieve any results on the ground,” lauding the objective positions of Senator Black regarding the terrorist war waged on Syria.
Please publish this same progression of facts in lay-man’s terms in a JEWllywood story like format, a simple story that will catch most who fail to interperet advanced presentations such as this one, a story that the simple GOYim with zero attention span will latch onto and want to see where it goes…
Redacted like a fable but an allegory that rings REAL, and IS REAL, with straight, simple language, that leads one to want to know what happens in the rest of the story, giving examples (real, recent and ancient events) of this reality for each point made.
For example, why is it that Hitler cleaned up Berlin of all the FILTH that you now spell out in this piece, yet Hitler gets ignored!?
This is a beautiful piece, indeed! Another BroN home-run!
Lenni Brenner in his book titled “Zionism in the Age of the Dictators” states that it was mostly the antizionist Jews who suffered from German persecution during World War II, and he states that only a very few Zionist Jews ever suffered German persecution in World War II.
Is it right that this Jewish Holocaust persecution rule is never mentioned or researched in any of the world’s Holocaust Museums, of which all solicit government and private funding and promise objectivity in return for donations ?
Lenni Brenner also states that the majority of the Jews in Poland repudiated Zionism ( the making of a new home land for the Jews in Israel ). Many today don’t realize that there was a great resistance to Zionism before 1933, and this resistance was from the majority of the Jews of the world who were then mostly all antizionist.
Could this same Jewish persecution rule be true also for other countries besides Germany, such as in the past history of Russia ?
Lenni Brenner, I believe is still alive and well today, and probably would supply good documented proof of his stated claims, if there should ever be a Holocaust Museum that would be interested in his information. Possibly someone could go into the business of opening a true Jewish Holocaust Museum.
I wish this Easter greeting was more popular in the West.
Could you imagine every Christian, Christian business owners, Christian Chairmen (do these people still exist in the USA or are they extinct?), and Christian churches regardless of creed or tradition in the West, posting signs, banners, and creating commercials claiming “Christ is Risen!”; or people greeting each other on or around Easter, “Christ is Risen!” with the response, “He is Risen Indeed!”?
The Jewish propaganda organ Yahoo News has yet another “Nazi death camp” story today. They have about one a day and its more than 70 years after WW2.
It shows a pathological yearning to highjack victimhood with decade, after decade, after decade, of Pavlovian self pity. Jewish media repeats, repeats, repeats the same propaganda just like a dog trainer does.
The truth is the Palestinian-murdering Jews, their child bombers and roof top snipers, are as vile as mankind ever gets.
Its amazing how the Jews, who suffered least of all in WW2, perpetually portray themselves as its only victims. Self pity as an industry. So weak, vile and disgusting!
Jewish victim mythology lies at the very heart of the big lie technique, wheras the truth on display in Palestine, also since about 1945, (and earlier) is the story of a murdering culture of hideous evil, perpetually enveloped in the odious stench of death and propaganda.
It feels very uncomfortable as an American, I feel this guilt in me even though myself, I have not committed any war crimes. I mean sure my country has commited crimes in the past…but couldn’t America learn from this?
Most Americans aren’t malicious at heart and I know they never wanted to go into WW2. Still when I browse the Internet I see much hatred towards us, and it makes me feel like America is being used a scapegoat to cover Jewry’s crimes.
I know America isn’t evil, but simply controlled and manipulated by powerful elements. This fantasy of mine of seeing America truly be great, I would really love to see that.
What is your opinion on this matter, Brother Nathanael?
Today, Jewish Yahoo News has a story about Nazi rocket attacks.
At least once a day the Jew boys at Yahoo news vilify Germans and victify Jews. Its a sick, sick news service.
This vilification all began about the time Palestine was invaded by the Jews, so I guess their idea is to keep your eye on Nazi bogey men and keep them off the daily savagery committed by the Jews for the last 75 continuous years in Palestine, a savagery that is still going on.
Khristós Anésti! dear +BN and his Real Jew News Family!
Christ is Risen!
Vladimir Putin congratulated Orthodox Christians and all Russians celebrating Pascha (Easter).
The message reads, in part:
“The great holiday of Easter elicits kindness in the hearts of millions of believers, unites them around enduring Orthodox spiritual values, centuries-old historical and cultural traditions of our people.
On this holiday, I would like to highlight the great constructive role of the Russian Orthodox Church in education and charity, strengthening the community’s moral values and educating the young generation.
The Church does a great deal to address urgent social problems and to preserve interethnic and interreligious peace in the country. Such complicated, demanding work deserves profound and sincere recognition.”
* * *
Vladimir Putin attended the night Easter service at the Christ the Saviour Cathedral.
Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia lead the festive service. According to tradition, the President of Russia and the Patriarch gave each other Easter presents.
Before the divine Easter service, a delegation from the St Andrew the First-Called Foundation delivered the Holy Fire from Jerusalem.
USA Today: Orthodox Easter spreads Holy Fire Around the World
Orthodox Easter was celebrated across the world Sunday with a fire ceremony, roasted lamb, cakes and street processions through the streets of Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
Protestants and Roman Catholics celebrated Easter in March, according to the Gregorian calendar, to commemorate the day followers believe Jesus was resurrected more than 2,000 years ago. But Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate this week, following the older Julian calendar.
In Jerusalem, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre — built where Jesus was crucified and resurrected — priests entered a small chamber marking his tomb and emerged with “holy fire.”
In a ceremony that dates back at least 1,200 years [it’s centuries older than that], they shared the flames with the faithful who used candles to pass it from person to person until the light filled the streets outside.
Worshipers, some carrying crosses, walked the 14 stations of the cross, along streets lined with hundreds of Israeli security forces deployed to regulate the flow of people, according to the Daily Mail.
Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem also handed the flame to delegations who took it to Orthodox churches around the world.
A Greek delegation, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Amanatidis, took it to Athens Saturday, and from there to more than a dozen locations around the country, according to Greek news outlet Kathimerini.
Fireworks are an essential part of the festivities in Greece, despite official disapproval from the Greek Orthodox Church.
On the eastern Greek Aegean island of Chios, two parishes in the village of Vrontados staged a spectacular mock war with a hail of fireworks, drawing visitors from across the country, according to the Associated Press.
In Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attended midnight Mass with thousands of people at Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, head of the world’s largest Orthodox Church, led the three-hour service, RT reported.
In Syria, Russian soldiers and airmen celebrated Mass in a makeshift temple close to the Russian airbase in Hmeimim, Tass reported, citing the Russian Defense Ministry.
“The ringing of the Orthodox bell on the territory of the Russian air base, announcing resurrection of the Lord, was performed on the Syrian land for the first time,” the ministry said.
The Russian military is helping the Syrian government led by President Bashar Assad in that country’s five-year civil war.
In Ukraine, where Russia seized [sic; it is Western media, after all] the province of Crimea in 2014 and continues to back an insurgency that occupies much of two other eastern provinces, the economics ministry said baking Easter cakes at home this year would cost 33.9% more than in 2015.
Still, Ukrainian faithful flocked to Vladimir Cathedral in Kiev to consecrate cakes and intricately painted eggs, while children dressed in colorful national costumes.
In Washington, President Obama issued a statement offering support to members of the Orthodox faith “who have been persecuted for their faith and subjected to unspeakable acts of violence.”
SANA: Press Conference (vid is in English with some sort of Arabic cross talk, which unfortunately obscures Senator Black’s voice at times.
However, you can glean some things, such as Black saying at 1:29 that “the Pentagon has a great deal of sympathy for Syria, the Syria government, and for the Syrian army. The State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency unfortunately are siding with the terrorists who are invading Syria.”
SANA: Christian Denominations Celebrate Easter by Holding Prayers and Masses
Damascus, SANA – Christian denominations in Syria, who follow the Eastern calendar, on Sunday celebrated Easter, the resurrection of Jesus the Christ.
Prayers and masses were performed at churches in celebration of Easter.
His Holiness Mor Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East presided a holy mass at St. George’s Patriarchal Cathedral at Bab Touma in Damascus, during which he stressed that “The Syrians, [both] Muslims and Christians, are members of one family and adherent to the homeland from which Christianity spread throughout the world,” calling upon Syrian expatriates to cooperate with governments of the countries where they live for restoring security and stability to the country.
He stressed that everyone should help reach a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria and rebuild it, reiterating that Syria will achieve victory in its war against terrorism thanks to its people who rally around their army and the wise leadership of President Bashar al-Assad. http://sana.sy/en/?p=76055
SANA: Senator Black: I had the honor to meet President al-Assad [video of news conference was removed from this page]
Damascus, SANA-US senator Richard Black held a press conference on Thursday at Four Seasons in Damascus, talking about his visit to Syria and saying “I had the honor to meet President Bashar al-Assad and his wife,” adding “the impression was excellent.”
“When I started to make a study about Syria, I was very interested in President al-Assad and his wife and I was very delighted when I found them completely as I have seen them in media, both are gentle and love their home sincerely,” Senator Black said.
He added the Syrian people are one of the most courageous peoples, considering that the outcome of the war on Syria will determine the destiny of the human civilizations.
Mr. Black warned that the collapse of Syria would threaten the neighboring countries, then Europe where terrorists will succeed in spreading chaos and destabilizing situation there.
As for the role of the neighboring countries in the terrorist war on Syria, the US senator said “ I was afraid when Jordan participated in the events in Syria, particularly in 2012 when it allowed the UN intelligence to train hundreds of gunmen and send them to attack Damascus, it seems that some neighboring countries imagined that they could inject poison in part of the body without moving into another part of it.”
He hoped the US was more decisive in combating terrorists, saying “We have to wait a little and see the US new President’s stance whose I hope be moving towards peace.”
The US senator hoped his country would re-open the Syrian embassy in Washington, considering that closing it in 2014 was because of the presidential elections in Syria as the US administration feared the Syrians would go with large numbers to vote for President al-Assad. http://sana.sy/en/?p=75921
Senator Black to Speaker of the People’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham: I will be the voice of Syria in America http://sana.sy/en/?p=75654
Senator Black meets Patriarchs Yazigi and Aphram II, visits injured soldiers at Hamish Hospital
Damascus, SANA – US Senator Richard Black said on Thursday he has been following the events in Syria closely since the very beginning of the terrorist war waged against it, noting that what is happening in country is a plot by foreign powers to destroy the country.
Black remarks came during a meeting with the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All East John X Yazigi at the Mariamite Cathedral in Damascus in the presence of Syria’s Permanent envoy to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari.
The US Senator noted that he will convey the reality of what is happening in Syria which refutes the false news and allegations circulated through media outlets about the events in the country.
For his part, Patriarch Yazigi stressed the unity of Syrian people, Muslims and Christians, and their adherence to the home land, steadfastness and support to the Syrian army under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad, expressing hope security and stability would be restored to Syria soon.
Yazigi called upon major powers which claim to defend the human rights, democracy and freedom, including the U.S., to abandon their double-standard policy and help achieve peace in Syria
Mr. Black also met the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All East Mar Ignatius Aphram II in the presence of Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban and al-Jaafari.
He hailed the sacrifices of the Syrian Arab army offered to defeat terrorism which has affected all spectrums of the Syrian people and has posed a threat to the international security and stability.
For his part, Patriarch Aphram II pointed out to the terrorist attacks and crimes perpetrated against the Syrian people, including Muslim and Christian clergymen, as well as mosques and churches, reiterating Syrian people’s unity in the face of this terrorist war targeting their homeland.
In a relevant context, Senator Black visited some injured soldiers at Ahmad Hamish Hospital in Damascus and inspected the services provided to its departments and the artificial limbs factory.
Mr. Black expressed deep concern over the economic blockade imposed by the US on Syria which restrained the latter’s ability to import and manufacture artificial limbs and provide necessary medical care to the injured, describing such act as a crime against humanity.
He questioned the US decision to prevent the delivery of medical equipment to whatever country serving political goals, adding that “We should stop this dirty war and lift the economic siege.” http://sana.sy/en/?p=75930
Greek delegation: Western media inolved in disinformation on Syria (April 23)
Damascus, SANA – Speaker of the People’s Assembly, Mohammad Jihad al-Laham met on Saturday Greek Parliament member Ioannis Sachinidis, who is member of the Golden Dawn Party, and the accompanying delegation.
The Greek delegation’s visit aims at getting to know the real picture of what is happening in Syria to convey it to the Parliament and media back in Greece, said Sachinidis.
He noted that his tour in Old Damascus yesterday, where he saw life unfolds quite normally, gave him proof that the Western media has contributed a lot to distortion of facts and disinformation on Syria.
Sachinidis said it is important that Syria and Greece have a joint plan to face the common threat of terrorism, which has been spreading all the way into Europe.
Al-Laham reminded of Syria’s repeated warning, since the very beginning of the regionally and internationally fuelled terror war waged on it, of the dangerous cross-border movement of terrorism.
Al-Laham used the opportunity of the meeting to call on the European parliaments to exercise pressure on their governments to take a firm stand against the Turkish regime that stands as the main facilitator of this cross-border movement of terrorists into Syria and beyond to Europe.
The European states, he said, also need to change their policies and stop providing cover and support to the armed terrorist organizations that is being done under false pretensions.
Continuing this support constitutes a blatant violation of all the international laws and conventions, he added.
Sachinidis agreed that the parties, individuals and countries involved in supporting terrorism in Syria must be clearly identified and that financing terrorism must be stopped. http://sana.sy/en/?p=75392
Would you do a video explaining that the story about “6 million dead Jews in the Holocaust” is actually based on a RABBINIC “prophecy” derived from gematria/kabbalah on the Torah (please google “6 million tashuvu”)?
There’s a missing letter in the Hebrew expression “you shall return” (tashuvu) regarding the return of Jews to Israel and this missing letter (vav, numerological value = 6) means that when Jews return they will be “6 million missing,” just like the letter is missing.
Also could you mention the fact the “6 million Jews” actually appear in newspapers 40 years (1900) before any Jew is killed in the Holocaust?
It seems to me, that Zionist Jews are FORCING the fulfillment of “prophecies” from the Torah. Do they want to hasten the arrival of their False Messiah? Or is there some other goal?
Is the ordinary every-day Jew aware of this ‘conspiracy’ to force the fulfillment of the prophecies, or only the top-echalon Jewry?
An Israeli lawmaker has accused Tel Aviv of committing “ethnic cleansing” against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank amid a rise in the demolition of Palestinian houses and buildings in the area.
Dov Khenin told Sky News on Sunday that Israel’s demolition of Arab structures in the so-called Area C of the West Bank is an attempt to clear the area and prepare it for Israelis to settle there in the future.
Area C, which is under full Israeli control, covers 360,000 hectares (890,000 acres) of land, equal to 60 percent of the West Bank’s area.
The 1993 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinians divides the West Bank into Area A under full Palestinian control, Area B under shared Israeli-Palestinian control and Area C.
Israel is committing an “ethnic cleansing in a very sophisticated way” in the occupied West Bank, Khenin said.
Israeli authorities rejected Khenin’s remarks and claimed that the demolitions are taking place because the structures being destroyed do not have building permits.
UN fieldworker Matthew Ryder has said, though, that getting approvals for buildings is “virtually impossible” for the Palestinians.
“Israel’s own figures show that, between 2010 and 2014, Palestinians in the area that Israel controls only managed to obtain 33 permits for building on their land — that’s something like 1.5% of the permits that are actually granted,” Ryder said.
Recent figures released by the United Nations show the Israeli military has more than tripled the pace of the demolitions of Palestinian structures in the occupied West Bank over the past three months.
The world body said the average demolitions have risen to 165 on the monthly basis since January.
The demolitions have raised alarm among world diplomats and human rights groups over what they regard as the Tel Aviv regime’s continued violation of international law.
Over half a million Israelis live in more than 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, including East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
All Israeli settlements are illegal under the international law. However, Tel Aviv has defied calls to stop the settlement expansions in the occupied territories.
Agape Vespers (also called Vespers of Love) is a Vespers service that continues the celebration of Pascha, typically held in the afternoon on the day of Pascha. It is a beautiful expression of One Heart in Christ world wide in many languages of the Orthodox Church.
The Stichera for the Agape Vespers is:
Having nailed to the Cross the handwriting that was against us, Christ our Saviour hast blotted out and hast destroyed the dominion of death; we worship His arising on the third day.
verse: From the morning watch until night, from the morning watch until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
With the archangel let us praise the Resurrection of Christ, for He is the Redeemer and Savior of our souls, And in awesome glory and mighty power, He cometh again to judge the world which He fashioned.
Verse: For with the Lord there is mercy and with Him is abundant redemption, and He will redeem Israel from all his transgressions.
He wast crucified and buried, did the angel proclaim as Master, and he said unto the women: Come behold where the Lord laid, for as He is almighty, He is risen as He said. Wherefore, we worship Thee, Who alone art immortal. O Life-giving Christ, have mercy on us.
Verse: Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, praise Him, all you peoples.
By Thy Cross Thou didst abolish the curse of the tree, by Thy burial Thou hast slained the might of death. And by Thine arising Thou hast enlightened the race of man.Wherefore, we cry out to Thee: O Benefactor, Christ our God, glory be to Thee.
At this 2014 service at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity, the Gospel reading (John 20:19-25) depicts the first appearance of the risen Lord to his disciples, and is recited in many languages (often as many languages as are known by those present in the congregation), symbolising that the glorious resurrection of Christ is proclaimed to all the nations of the world.
( youtube.com/watch?v=rfXzlXcu9wE )
To this effect, the Gospel pericope is sometimes read from different places within the nave.
In some traditions, red eggs are again distributed to the congregation at the end of the service as a blessing. People who attend this service may also hold lit Paschal candles from the Resurrection service from the night before.
It is also a custom to bring small children who were not able to attend the evening service. After this service, people will often continue the celebration of the Resurrection in their homes.
Agape Vespers - Gospel Reading - 20 April 2014
The Gospel of St. John 20:19-25 read in Greek, English, Latin, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, Arabic, Turkish, and Hawaiian.
John 20:19-25 King James Version (KJV)
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
Christ is in Our Midst!
As the Serbs say: Za krst časni i slobodu zlatnu! (For the Honorable Cross and Golden Freedom!)
I finally discovered why there is such a concerted, concentrated focus on holoco$t business victims — this year is the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Tribunals.
Alan Dershowitz, regular contributing writer to the noxious mega-Neocon Jewish Gatestone Institute (with some Gentiles thrown in) wants the world to pay, and pay, and pay some more to the Jews. Germany wasn’t enough.
The Holocaust: Many Villains, Few Heroes

As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg trials, at which selected Nazi leaders were placed in the dock, we must ask some disturbing questions about those who were never tried for their complicity in the world’s worst genocide.
It would have been impossible to carry out the mass murder of so many people without the complicity of so many governments, groups, and individuals.
Perhaps there were too many guilty parties to put them all on trial, but it is not too late to hold the guilty morally accountable for what they did and failed to do.
To be sure, the guiltiest individuals were the Nazi leaders who directly planned and implemented the final solution.
Their goal was to in gather Jews from all over the world in order to kill them and to destroy what they regarded as the “Jewish race”. They came very close to succeeding, wiping out nearly all of Europe’s Jews in a relatively brief period of time.
These Nazi leaders had the help of many “willing executioners,” both in Germany and in the countries under its control. Among the worst culprits were individual Lithuanians, Latvians, Hungarians, Slovaks, Poles, Ukrainians, and others.
There were some heroes among these groups and they are justly remembered and honored. But the number of villains far exceeded the number of heroes.
Then there were the guilty governments that cooperated and helped facilitate the deportations and round-ups. The French government deported more Jews than the Nazis demanded.
Other governments, including those of Norway, Holland and Hungary, also helped the Nazis achieve their genocidal goal.
Bulgaria and Denmark, on the other hand, declined to cooperate with the Nazi genocide, and their small Jewish populations were saved.
There were also the countries that refused to accept Jews who might have escaped the Nazis had they been permitted to enter. These countries include the United States, Canada, and many other potential places of asylum that shut their doors.
In the United States and Canada too, there were heroes who pressed their leaders to do more, but for the most part they failed.
Many Arab and Muslim leaders also played ignoble roles, siding with the Nazis and conducting their own pogroms against local Jews.
The leading villain in this regard was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who joined Hitler in Berlin and played a hands-on role in sending Jews to their deaths and in keeping the doors of Palestine closed to Jewish refugees.
Could more have been done by Britain and the United States to end the genocide? Could they have bombed the rail lines to Auschwitz and other death camps? These are complex questions that have been asked but not satisfactorily answered since 1945.
There were also the actions of those who pardoned and commuted the sentences of Nazis convicted at Nuremberg, and those who helped Nazis escape prosecution after the war ended. That list too is long and disturbing.
The Nuremberg trials, by focusing narrowly on Nazi leaders and their direct henchmen, implicitly exculpated those who played important, but less direct, roles by their actions and inaction. By their nature, courts are limited in what they can do to bring to justice large numbers of individuals who belong on a wide continuum of legal and moral guilt.
But historians, philosophers, jurists and ordinary citizens are not so limited.
We may point fingers of blame at all who deserve to be blamed, whether or not they were placed on trial at Nuremberg, or at subsequent legal proceedings.
There will never be perfect justice for those who helped carry out the Holocaust. Most of the guilty escaped prosecution, lived happy lives and died in their beds, surrounded by loving family members.
West Germany prospered as a result of the Marshall Plan, and many German industrialists, who had benefited from slave labor, continued to benefit as a result of the perceived needs of the Cold War.
The scales of justice remain out of balance. Perhaps this helps to explain why more than 6 million people have been murdered in preventable genocides — in Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur and other places — since the world pledged “never again.”
There is, of course, the risk that by blaming all, we blame none. It is important to calibrate the responsibility of those who played very different roles in the Holocaust. This is a daunting task, but it must be undertaken if future genocides are to be deterred.
I’m surprised he didn’t suggest holding cadaver trials for those “villains” he criticizes as having gotten away.
Take care, Poland!
Alas! Die Juden sind unser Unglück! (The Jews are our misfortune!)
From Right Wing Watch:
The Gatestone Institute is a New York-based advocacy organization that is tied to neoconservative and other right-wing networks in the United States and Europe.
Chaired by John Bolton, a former Bush administration diplomat and a conservative foreign policy hardliner, Gatestone is a clearinghouse for right-wing commentaries on national security, the Middle East, and Islam, as well as a convener of high-dollar events on security and energy issues.
It is an offshoot of the neoconservative Hudson Institute.
The institute was founded in 2011 by Nina Rosenwald, an heiress of the Sears Roebuck empire who has been a key philanthropic backer of anti-Muslim groups and individuals in the United States.
Describing Gatestone’s origins, journalist Max Blumenthal writes: “Through her affiliation with the Washington-based Hudson Institute, where Norman Podhoretz is an adjunct fellow, Rosenwald established a branch of the think tank in New York City.
“Operating under the Hudson banner, Rosenwald brought [the controversial anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders] to town in 2008 to warn against the Muslim plot to ‘rule the world by the sword.’
Wilders’s tirade during that visit against the prophet Muhammad, whom he described as ‘a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile,’ was strident even by the standards of the hawkish Hudson Institute.
“By 2011 … Rosenwald separated Hudson New York City from Hudson’s national branch, changing her organization’s name to the Gatestone Institute.”
Among its activities, the institute holds what it calls “Briefing Council events,” which have included talks by Walid Phares, Charles Krauthammer, Andrew McCarthy, Elliott Abrams, William Kristol, and a host of other well-known right wingers and Gatestone principals.
Among its past have been a presentation by Zuhdi Jasser on the “battle for the soul of Islam”; a talk by former CIA director James Woolsey titled “War on America”; a presentation in which Geert Wilders called Islam a “violent ideology that wants to impose Islamic Sharia law on the whole world”; and a 2014 event featuring Woolsey, former General David Petraeus, right-wing videographer James O’Keefe, and a host of conservative activists extolling the virtues of “fracking” for natural gas and oil.
A notice on Gatestone’s website, which has since been removed, described the events as “invitation only, exclusively for our members,” with a “minimum donation of $10,000 required for participation.”
Frequent topics include Israeli security, purported Palestinian malfeasance, Iran’s nuclear enrichment program, and the supposed threat of Sharia law in Europe and North America. http://rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/gatestone_institute/
What might help bring us out of the Night of the Living Dead is knowledge. There is an awful lot of ignorance among the American Christians about the Jew menace that is hurting the country.
1. More discussion of the Jewish chem trail poisoning of the Christian middle class neighborhoods that floods the lungs and eyes with metallic dust.
2. More discussion of how the communist Jews are using crime, drugs and welfare to destroy the White Christian neighborhoods and culture of the U.S.
3. Endless wars of conquest for the Jew bankers doesn’t do the average American any good. Being proud to be a hired killer for the communist Jews that masterminded the 911 inside job should earn one a royal place in Hell and not a parade permit or a pat on the back.
When I was a small boy my father had a drinking buddy named Morris Andrews. Morris was a lawyer at the Nuremburg Trials and he either defended a German General named Kurt Myer or refused to do so because he figured the trial was rigged. I just forget the details.
Morris drank himself to death in his car in front of our house. When I went to school in the mornings I would see Morris sleeping in his car at the end of our driveway.
I asked my father why Morris drank so much and he said it was because of the Nuremburg Trials. He didn’t explain and I was too young to understand anyway.
In those days the Germans were the bad guys. They gassed my grandfather with mustard gas in WW1 and killed my father’s brother at the battle of the Rhineland in WW2. Our next door neighbour had a huge crease in his skull from a German bullet. Lots of people lost their sons to Germans.
And the Germans had to be the bad guys because everyone in town had gone to Europe to shoot them and how can you justify that kind of behaviour, because they were not criminals. They had to be the bad guys otherwise what you were doing was murder.
That is the madness of war. You kill people you would otherwise like if you met them socially - and for who? It smells like it’s just for the Jewish bankers?
Even as a small boy I noticed two things. Those who were in the thick of it never talked about the war ever; and my father held no animosity towards Germans, which I found very odd, so I guess he knew secret things about the war, from Morris, that had modified his view.
Later I met a German whose father had been in the Luftwaffe and he pointed out two things to me. No Luftwaffe generals were prosecuted at Nuremburg because to do so would have brought the Allied halocaust bombings of civilians in places like Hamburg and Dresden into view at the trials.
All German aircraft, including the bombers, flew off grass fields meaning they were small and designed only to precisely hit military targets. If you want to do a holocaust bombing of civilians, from a rainy country like Germany, you need cement runways so the large bombers with huge payloads don’t get bogged down in the mud.
The Germans did not have a single cement runway until towards the end of WW2 when the Germans had access to two cement or tarmac airstrips. One was in Norway and one was in NE Germany, perhaps Berlin. Otherwise they flew off grass strips.
The German bombers were designed to precisely hit military targets. The Stuka dive bomber is the best example. The German military appears to have been the best and most honorable military in WW2 probably because of its Prussian roots.
My German friend said the Nuremburg Trials were designed to erase what was called “the Prussian spirit” but I don’t know what he meant by that.
In terms of getting an accurate picture about the holocaust David Irving’s “Revised Revisionism” on YouTube seems pretty accurate.
He thinks about 2.2 million Jews were shot in south eastern Poland at places like Rega in White Russia, but just why they were shot is not explained.
An awful lot of white Russians were exterminated there too but I do not have the numbers or dates. The Jewish deaths may have simply been payback.
He figures fewer than 300,000 people, including Jews died at Auschwitz with some killed there in two small building called the red house and the white house. They were people too old to work.
He doesn’t think Hitler had anything to do with the holocaust, and thinks he even stopped Jews from being killed. He interviewed Hitler’s inner circle and they all admired him.
I must say the YouTube interview with the valet, who was with him for most of the war, presents a picture of Hitler as a really decent man. He willingly gave his life to repair Jewish damaged Germany.
Maybe the time has come to replace the Statue of Liberty with the Hitler monument. It wouldn’t cost much. It just needs a new head with a moustache. The arm is already raised and pointing towards Wall Street which somehow seems appropriate.
Irving implies the vilification of Hitler and enormous exaggeration of Auschwitz fatalities was done by the Jews to make money (what else). Auschwitz, with all its buildings, makes a better Disneyland setting than for a death camp, than execution sites (open fields) in southern Poland which were just clearings in the woods.
He says the word holocaust did not even exist until 1970 and was almost ceratinly written and hyped by a PR firm. Like they say–There is no business like Shoa business.
What is very disturbing about David Irving’s story is that he says Hollywood Jews spent $13.5 million to put him in jail in Austria for 400 days in a 6X6 cell.
Irving mentions Steven Spielberg by name as being linked to this enterprise…
Its important to take a closer look at Spielberg. The popular depiction of ISIS, including the black uniform and robe, seems like a Spielberg depiction of Darth Vader.
The throat cutting of the innocent seems to be not only a characteristic of ISIS but also of the Jewish religion when it produces “Kosher” meat. The throat cutting lies at the very heart of the Jewish and Muslim religions. The Muslims call it Halal.
Throat cutting, which ISIS has popularized, lies at the very heart of the Jewish religion.
Then too Spielberg uses Texas $billionaire Jew Tommy Friedkin as an actor (and perhaps a financier). Friedkin has the largest Toyota dealer in the middle of east, and the ISIS vehicle of choice is the Toyota Land Cruiser.
According to Veterans Today the ISIS vehicles, the tanker trucks, that take the oil to Turkey, to finance ISIS, come from Texas. Friedkin likely knows who is behind this. The neocon, dual Israeli-American state department, knows for sure and could stop ISIS in Texas.
If Spielberg were involved in developing the ISIS terrorist persona, I would assume he could be charged with assisting a terrorist organization and perhaps even with treason, and depending on the state - face the death penalty.
Hollywood, at the best of times, never smells too good.
Yahoo news has a “Hitler’s Bunker” story today. Keeping the Hitler as bad guy narrative alive 75 years after the war on a daily basis.
Yahoo “News” seems to nothing more than a really sick mind control operative.
“These Nazi leaders had the help of many “willing executioners,” both in Germany and in the countries under its control. Among the worst culprits were individual Lithuanians, Latvians, Hungarians, Slovaks, Poles, Ukrainians, and others. “–Dershowitz
Interestingly, Alan Dershowitz omitted the Jewish capos in gettos or camps. Capo was a Jewish Ghetto policeman in Poland who helped round up other Jews and put them on trains to the camps. The Nazis specifically targeted less observant Jews to be Capos, on the theory that they would take out their rage on their more observant brethren.
Calel Perechodnik, a Jew is an author of a book called “Am I a Murderer?”, in which he elaborates on capos blaming the more visible Jews for attracting the attention of the Nazis and bringing persecution down on the less observant Jews as well.
The supervision arrangements across the various concentration camps varied slightly, but in general each barrack or block would have its own a male or female guard or commander, usually a German or Ukrainian.
A German commander would appoint prisoners to supervise the other inmates. They were known as ‘Kapos’. Most Kapos were Jewish and they were worse than the Nazis. But Ukrainians guards were extremely ruthless and cruel.
It saddens me to read your apologetic & whitewashing comment on German bombardments during WW2.
Without acknowledging the truth about war there can never be PEACE.
“….The German bombers were designed to precisely hit military targets. The Stuka dive bomber is the best example. The German military appears to have been the best and most honorable military in WW2….”
Before WWII, author Father Malak was stationed in Inowroclaw, in the area that would later be directly annexed to the Third Reich, complete with an eventual systematic closing of churches and exile of Polish priests.
In common with many other eyewitnesses, Fr. Malak recounted the 1939 Luftwaffe bombing of churches with parishioners inside and the wanton Luftwaffe strafing of columns of fleeing, defenceless civilians.
He testified of these aerial German military atrocities, notably those that occurred on the road between Bydgoszcz and Inowroclaw.
I think you have to look at intent and technology to get a handle on the truth. When your entire airforce is designed to fly off dirt fields in rainy Germany it means you are not planning to carry bomb loads designed to destroy civilian populations.
I would not be suprised to find the Germans blew up some churches. The Americans just blew up a hospital but I am doubt that there was any intent to do so.
There is a pastor at Rommersheim in southern Germany who was there when Patton crossed into Germany, and I am told he has written a book in which he says Ernest Hemingway was there at the time as a war correspondent, and that he murdered 120 captive German prisoners of war. Hard to believe but that’s allegedy his testimonial.
I like to try to unravel history by looking at things other than testimonials. I once had to testify at a court in Africa.
At the courthouse I was approached by some “professional witnesses.” They said they would say anything you asked them to say for money. The country had been a British colony and so in court you swore on the Bible but these guys were Muslims who did not believe in the Bible, and so they were willing to swear on the Bible to anything in exchange for money. It was a cottage industry.
Elie Wesiel has also written and given testimony about his time in a Nazi “death camp,” but other Jewish prisoners who really were there say he wasn’t even there. He got a Nobel Prize for his book. Barack Obama got a Nobel peace prize too but has done nothing but conduct wars.
The story that always stuck in my craw was the tale about Dunkirk. As a small boy in school in Canada I was taught how the clever British were backed up on the beach and selfless Englishmen in row boats and bath tubs crossed the channel and saved the day.
The so-called British expeditionary force was in fact the whole British army including General Montgomery and Lord Allenbrook, head of all British armed forces. It was the entire British army.
Irwin Rommel had them ringed with steel and awaited a thumbs down from Hitler. That would have spelled the end of Britain in WW2. Hitler told Rommel to let them go. He did not want war with Britain or its colonies and did not bomb Britain until Churchill bombed German civilians. Hitler never even thought of invading Britian. He liked the British.
The Germans had no boats suitable for crossing the channel and making an invasion, and their fighter plans did not carry enough gas to go over, hang around and return. Most German fighters that were lost over England ran out of gas.
The Germans were magnificent fighter pilots, by far the best ever. They had more than 100 aces with more than 100 kills. The Allies, 44 nations in all, had none.
The reason there are so many names of the dead on cenotaphs around the British commonwealth, such as member of my own family, is not because of Adolph Hitler. They died because of war monger Winston Churchill.
More technology as opposed to testimonial addenda. A good friend of mine, a Middle Eastern correspondent, told me the first war in Iraq in ‘91 was coming six months before it happened.
His reasoning was this. He said the Abrams tank was twice as heavy as bridges in Europe could support. He said that meant it was designed for wars in the Middle East.
It was made for the desert. He said the American military took six months transporting hundreds of Abrams tanks into Kuwait and that the decision to go to war against Saddam Hussein must have been made at least six months before the war was ever declared, because logistically, that is how long it took to get the tanks in place.
Speaking of the living dead, Kerry’s getting bellicose again, demanding that “Assad Must Go!”
Exclusive: Aleppo Doctor Attacks Western Media for Bias, Censorship and Lies
Arret sur Info
When the US and NATO war of aggression was launched against Syria, Dr Nabil Antaki could have abandoned Aleppo to ensure his own safety. Instead he decided to remain and to serve the besieged people of his City, working with various local charities.
Above all, he wanted to bear witness to the destruction caused by Western support for the foreign armed groups who have been systematically destroying Syria and terrorising its people for the last 5 years.
On the 30th April, Silvia Cattori recorded this report from Dr Antaki on the recent amplification of propaganda surrounding events in Aleppo. It has been translated from the French by Vanessa Beeley.
“With regards to recent events in Aleppo, I state very clearly that the mainstream media are lying by omission. Since the beginning of the war in Aleppo that began 4 years ago, they have consistently failed to report all the facts.
All of us here in Aleppo are disgusted by their lack of impartiality and objectivity. They only ever talk about the loss of life in the east of Aleppo which is entirely controlled by Al Nusra, a terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda.
These are their “moderate rebels” a title that affords them an unmerited degree of respectability.
This same media remains silent on the daily losses and suffering endured in the Western areas of Aleppo living under the rain of mortar fire from these terrorist factions.
This media never mentions the terrorist blockade upon our people or the electricity cuts and water shortages inflicted upon us by their “moderate rebels”.
This media never mention the continuous bombardment and the carnage we have witnessed in western Aleppo where every single sector has been targeted.
On a daily basis we see dozens of people murdered.
What makes these omissions even more despicable is that these areas represent 75% of Aleppo and there are 1.5 million people living in them. Compare this to the 300,000 living in the eastern zone which is occupied by terrorist groups.
This twisted narrative engenders the belief that these terrorist groups that are attacking us are actually the victims. Even more abhorrent, these media have distorted our “Save Aleppo” appeal, to make it look as if we are calling for Assad and the Syrian Army to cease hostilities!
This is FALSE. Added to which, they are not “Assad’s forces“, they are the national forces of the regular Syrian army that is defending the Syrian State.
The western and gulf media could at least have had the decency to mention the terrorist massacres of our people. For example, on Friday 30th April, when one of their mortars targeted a mosque at prayer time.
The attacks and losses we suffer are reported in a way that leaves the public in the dark about the true perpetrators of these crimes. For three days now, these media outlets have been accusing the “Assad regime” of bombing an MSF hospital [Medecins sans Frontieres] to the east of Aleppo and of killing the last paediatrician in the city.
This demonstrates that, for these media, the only priority is this pocket of the city where terrorists are embedded.The three quarters of Aleppo under Syrian Government control where numerous paediatricians are practicing is of no consequence for this media.
We witnessed the same bias when Al Kindi, the biggest hospital in Aleppo, was targeted by terrorist mortars and then intentionally burnt down about 2 or 3 years ago.
The media ignored this criminal act.
We are disheartened and disgusted by this continuous disinformation.”
I wish you could speak also to some Polish survivors of the last war.
Not Jewish, but ethnic Poles.
The “Stuka” dive bomber got its name for a reason, for apart from the bombs it was also equipped in automatic firearms, that were used to shoot indiscriminately at the escaping civilians as well.
The airplanes dived coming close to the innocent victims and went stuk..stuk…stuk…stuk!!!
The roads were literally covered with dead bodies, dead horses and blood.
The first bombarded city was Wielun and afterwards many others.
Surprisingly, even Holland was attacked; the Dutch seaport of Rotterdam was bombed by the Luftwaffe (May 14, 1940). The city centre was destroyed. Nearly 1,000 people were killed, although initial press reports were higher.
I didn’t get the chance to enjoy the company of any of my grandfathers, both killed during the war, but my grandmothers and my parents didn’t lie. They didn’t have to. The scars were still there….
Both my parents were very lucky to survive a bombardment, from which they managed to escape and then moved to countryside, where they stayed with a family.
But even there, the farms were taken over by the German administration and my mum had enough stories to tell of the treatment she received from the farm new administrator’s wife. The previous owners of the farm were working there as slaves.
Then the Soviets confiscated it anyway.
How much more can one take?
By the way Ted: have you seen the flamethrowers used on the buildings in Warsaw?
I like to talk to anyone who was in the thick of it on either side. I just want to know what the truth is.
I am very tired of people like CBC News or Christianne Anampour telling me what I should think instead of giving me hard news.
I did not know the Germans used flame throwers. My only knowledge of flame throwers comes from watching videos of American troops using them on the Japanese.
I believe the Americans have used jellied gasoline on other people, either in flame throwers or in Napalm in Viet Nam, more than anyone else ever has.
I am suprised that registered flame throwers are not sold to law abiding citizens for self defence because Americans can own registered machine guns and even jet fighters.
In East Africa there is a rapidly growing problem with swarming robberies by big mobs of maybe 20 or 30 people.
I guess the idea behind the swarming is to intimidate even those who own a handgun and might have planned to use it.
A flame thrower would stop a very big mob breaking into your house, in its tracks right at the front door, and the technology is simple and the components - gasoline, compressed air and a few pipes are readily available at any hardware or scuba diving store.
Ted Gorsline’s statement about the Abrams tank being too heavy for bridges in Europe and perfect for the sands of the M.E. is incorrect.
You want a light, maneuverable tank such as Patton brought to Africa in 1942. The American ‘Sherman’ with its Kettering V8 worked perfectly against the heavy Panzers. Although the Shermans were outgunned, they could move fast, and as in the last battle at Al Alamein.
Patton was able to outmaneuver Rommel, and he capitulated, but Hitler did not allow him to, and rescued the Wehrmacht Africa Corp.
So I’m afraid the story doesn’t hold water, Ted.
And also, the Gulf War in Iraq was declared on 2 August, 1990; its operational first phase codenamed Operation Desert Shield for operation leading to the buildup of troops and sending troops to Saudi Arabia for defense purposes.
Operation Desert Sabre (early name Operation Desert Sword) was the US name for the air-land offensive against the Iraqi Army in the Kuwaiti Theater of Operations (the “100-hour war”) from 24–28 February 1991, in itself, part of Operation Desert Storm–the US. name of the air-land conflict from 17 January 1991, through 11 April 1991.
It took several months to logistically get men and equipment in place. Remember, CNN live coverage on a Monday night.
Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

All the horrors in the world cannot take away the ineffable joy of the Holy Resurrection.
The world understands fasting as we do during Lent; people fast for a lot of reasons. To some extent the world understands alms giving, even repentance, but what it does not understand is Christ’s victory over death itself.
The counterfeit Christianity of the West, long corrupted by Jews, and schismatic for at least a thousand years, is so bankrupt and empty that young people regard all of it no differently than Scientology, Mormonism, or other mind control cults.
I even read a blogger from “northern” Canada, who claims he is interested in truth, say that all religions are the same and are all merely brainwashing. No wonder he cannot see the forest for the trees and is puzzled by world events.
How fortunate we are to have Brother Nathanael to speak the truth.
We, who are Orthodox Christians, see what is happening in the world, but we do not despair. We know what the cause of the suffering of humanity is, and we know what the outcome ultimately will be.
The great sermon of St. John Chrysostom read every Pascha tells of Christ’s victory and is very clear to say that evil is “vexed” (not a strong enough word for it in English).
We see that evil is vexed.
We see the arson of St. Sava’s Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in NYC (the church that Tesla supported). It was certainly not from candles as some will perhaps say.
That church sets their candles in sand and quenches them in water. It is very old and made of stone. The only combustible materials are the pews, the iconastasis, and some wood of the roof.
There is no way combustion of such materials could produce 50-100 flames shooting out of the rose window with black smoke more characteristic of oil or gas fires, than wood. No way.
The loss is irreparable. The iconastasis (icon screen in front of the altar) dates from the year 906, not to mention other priceless icons and relics. It happened well after the service was over, so thank God no one was hurt, and unlike 9/11, the building did not collapse from the “Jewish lightning”.
Let us recall that on 9/11 they managed to destroy one the oldest churches in the US–St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in the shadow of the South Tower. Some relics had been miraculously preserved.
The Jews confiscated the church-owned land and would not permit re-building on it’s site, forcing the GOC into a protracted and expensive lawsuit which after years, they finally won permission to build a shrine (not a parish church), and to build it in a different location nearby.
We know what really happened to St. Sava’s Church. Witnesses report half hardhearted attempts to quell the fire after a late arrival by firemen. These same firemen admitted the fire was not ordinary to say the least, but the commissioner announced there would be no investigation while the fire was yet burning and he wasn’t even there!
For years, a Jewish developer had been trying to get hold of that property to no avail. Extreme financial pressure had been applied. That particular neighborhood has been undergoing gentrification since the late 70’s. The church and it’s parking lot were unique to say the least.
Please pray for the hundreds of parishioners.
In Australia, an Orthodox Church in Sidney and one in Melbourne were also burned down by arson.
The Palestinians have seen this regularly in the “price tag” attacks. A Greek woman was crushed to death by a bulldozer while standing in front of the Holy Altar of the Church of the Ascension (her body was shipped to to Greece and when the coffin was opened for the funeral she was found to be restored and incorruptible.)
How many hundreds of churches did the Bolshevik Jews burn? How many priests did they crucify? (not one synagogue was touched)
WWIII is already underway. It’s full manifestation will be when the Jews destroy to Dome of the Rock to build their temple.
Great Imagery in one of your finest poetical pieces to date brother Nate. But it seemed to only offer despair without the glimmer of hope.
I hope it isn’t the same conclusion that Bob Dylan came to in one of his songs where he said “I used to care but things have changed” where he becomes preoccupied only with his salvation giving up on helping others.
But I know in my heart that you are awaiting an eleventh hour & the coming of our lord Jesus in the twinkle of an eye, as he comes as a thief in the night to rescue the faithful in rapturous glory!
Dylan’s paternal grandparents Zigman and Anna Zimmerman emigrated from Odessa in the Russian Empire (now Ukraine) to the United States following the anti-Semitic pogroms of 1905
His maternal grandparents Ben and Florence Stone were Lithuanian Jews who arrived in the U.S. in 1902.
In his autobiography Chronicles: Volume One, Dylan writes that his paternal grandmother’s maiden name was Kirghiz and her family originated from Kağızman district of Kars Province in north-eastern Turkey.
Dylan’s parents Abram Zimmerman and Beatrice “Beatty” Stone were part of the area’s small but close-knit Jewish community.
The fact that during WWII the Germans viewed bombers mainly as an extended (tactical) artillery supporting ground forces is well known, Ted Gorsline is right.
The British and later the Americans, on the other hand, developed “strategic bombers”, which at the time could only succeed by carpet-firebombing entire cities (”area bombing directive”). A few examples:
-1943 Kassel: 10.000 dead
-1943 Hamburg: 45.000 dead
-1945 Pforzheim: 18.000 dead
-1945 Dresden: more than 300.000 dead
-1945 Tokio: 100.000 dead
All in all, THREE MILLION Germans died, including 500.000 children.
By the way: STUKA: STurzKAmpfflugzeug (”Dive Bomber”), do not spread false information!
But the “coincidences don’t end there.” The cross-town “conservative” New York Post, among others, carried a story about the fire, and three other fires that took place at Orthodox sites (2 churches, 1 monastery) that same day!
Headline: ‘Coordinated Attack Feared After Massive Cathedral Blaze’
I think your information is dead wrong. For example, I don’t think Patton was ever at El Alamein.
I think it was the British General Bernard Montgomery. If Patton ever met Rommel it must have been at Kasserine Pass where Rommel obliterated the American army, and although the time and place were roughly right for Patton to have been there, I have not seen mention of Patton being there.
Maybe he was written out of the official version of the story to avoid embarassment?
In fact I don’t think I have seen mention of Patton having ever confronted Irwin Rommel anywhere.
The most humiliating defeat in the history of warfare was the conquest of 60,000 American soldiers from Texas by 15 German machine gunners in Italy.
The whole army gave up although if you read American text books they say “killed and surrendered” as if there had been a fight. I can’t remember the name of the army but it would be easy to find because Eisenhauer was so disgusted that he disbanded it so there will be a record.
I kind of suspect that is why Audie Murphy was showered with so many medals, so as to give Texans a role model to look up to , to help them save face.
In regards to German skill with tanks, I hear there is an old guy in Bavaria named “Panzer Willy” who is still alive. I would love to meet him. I am told he alone destroyed more than 100 American tanks at the Battle of the Bulge, including a great many after he ran out of ammunition, by ramming them.
I personally believe that Hitler lost the war for Germany by firing von Manstein, and that if he had let von Manstein take the bit in his teeth we would all be speaking German today. Von Manstein was the architect of the Blitzkreig and regulary defeated Russian armies 3 to 10 times the size of the German army, and the Russians had more tanks and better tanks.
You have to be very careful believing anything including war stories that originate from Hollywood movies. For example, Robert Redford turned Woodward and Bernstein into “investigative” reporting icons but they didn’t figure anything out on their own.
They were just good stenographers, sitting at their desks, who had the ablity to answer the telephone and take notes when a guy named “Deep Throat” called to tell them what was going on. They wrote it up ran it past the legal department, and had it printed. Bingo! Hollywood icons.
Redford’s greatest contribution to the art of film making is introducing junk jargon into the English language by coining words like “horse whisperer” and “Grizz.”
I am interested in grizzly bears because I raised many of them for the movies when I was young and know for sure that in pioneer days they called them names like “Moccasin Joe” and “Old Ephraim” but never “grizz”. Grizz is a Redfordism.
Thanks for the link. My father was a member of the Perth Regiment and so was Morris. The armoury where they would start the evening was in Stratford, Ontario, Justin Bieber’s home town, population 30,000.
They would end up at our house, and then I am sure as the evening went on, my mother would ask my father to ask Morris to leave, but since he was too drunk to drive he would sleep in his car at the end of the driveway and that is where I would see him in the morning.
I know his drinking problem related to the Nuremburg Trials because my father told me that.
As I say I could not understand why my father held no animosity towards Germans because I considered them to be the bad guys back then.
My friends and I would go to the Saturday movies (they cost 25 cents) and watch John Wayne, who it turns out was never in a war, shooting either Indians, the Japanese or Germans.
They were the Hollywood (And Pinecrest Studios in England) bad guys. More than 70 years after the war Steven Spileberg keeps winding up anti-German sentiment with bad guy characters like Darth Vader who wears a flared German helmet.
I understand the US Marine Corps uses John Wayne movies as role models to this very day.
The Germans don’t need Hollywood movie stars for their military role models. They have hundreds and hundreds of real ones.
There is an interview on YouTube with Eric Hartman the fighter pilot with more than 350 kills.
The interviewer asks him how he managed to run up such a huge score. He says quite matter of factly that at war’s end there were only 4 German fighter pilots left. He says when they went up they faced 5,000 Allied fighter planes - hurricanes, spitfires, mustangs etc. He said there were alot of targets.
That is exactly the same attitude as the Spartans of whom it was said,”they never ask how many of the enemy there are. They only ask where they are!”
RA Fiebel say the Abrams tank is too heavy for the desert and my friend who was a war correspondent in the Middle East for three years says it was made for the desert. Not sure who is right on this point.
However, if the Abrams tank was designed for the Middle East you could date the time a decision was made to go to war in Iraq by the date the decision was made to design and produce large numbers of Abrams tanks.
It would mean the plans to go to war were made long before either 9/11 or the weapons of mass destruction B.S.
It would be nice to know 1) Is the Abrams tank designed for the desert? 2) Who ordered it made in such large numbers? and 3) when did the design and manufacturing begin?
That will date when the decision was made to go to war which may have some bearing on 9/11. America doesn’t need a desert tank to defend itself from Mexico. If the Abrams is designed for the Middle East it was designed for conquest in a predetermined war, that had yet to be wound up, and not for the defence of Europe during the Cold War.
Diane Feinstein and her husbands have been heavily involved in major military contracts for a very long time.
If she took a little time off from trying to disarm Americans to look into it, she might know where to dig up the contracts.
Sorry, by “false” I didn’t mean what you wrote about your grandfathers, only your explanation of the word “Stuka”.
I am very sorry for your loss, everybody loses in a war except the Jewish banksters behind the scenes. Polish soldiers fought bravely against the better equipped Wehrmacht.
Unfortunately the Jews got what they wanted during WWII, and that was -first and foremost- to destroy the German Reich. Hitler gave a “bad example” with his sovereign money policy and also by teaching the people who the real enemy is.
Poland was used as a casus belli against Germany, but oh surprise!, left alone when the Soviets invaded Poland from the East two weeks later. The Allies didn’t declare war on the good old Stalin, because it was their friend! Poland also had to endure decades-long Communist rule after the war.
In other words: Great Britain and France couldn’t care less about Poland, it was just their way to pick up a fight against Germany.
This very sad story should teach us: OUR ENEMY IS THE JEW! Don’t let the Jew sow hatred and enmity between Christian brother nations! For the sake of our future let’s fight together against the Jews and their minions.
“This very sad story should teach us: OUR ENEMY IS THE JEW! Don’t let the Jew sow hatred and enmity between Christian brother nations! For the sake of our future let’s fight together against the Jews and their minions.
Last but not least: JESUS CHRIST IS OUR LORD!”
Wholeheartedly agree with you on that Caveman and thank you for your kind words.
