German Jews Fear Growing Muslim Anti-Semitism

Posted by addisethiopia on April 25, 2017

German parliamentary report finds that German Jews feel ‘growing threat’ of anti-Semitism – especially from Muslims.

Jews in Germany say they feel a “growing threat” of anti-Semitism, especially from Muslims but also from xenophobic far-right groups, a parliamentary report said Monday.

They are “increasingly concerned for their safety due to everyday experiences of anti-Semitism,” said the Independent Experts Group on Anti-Semitism.

In a 2016 survey, Jewish people questioned about verbal and physical attacks against them put “Muslim persons or groups” first as the perpetrators, ahead of “people unknown” or far-right or left groups, said the report, without providing specific data.

In Germany, which has long struggled with the dark memory of Nazi-era World War II and the Holocaust, there was now “a significant discrepancy in perception” about anti-Semitism, said the group set up by the German Bundestag in 2014.

The Reason Why Jewish Voters Decide To Vote For “anti-semites” And “fascists” In Germany


The European “noble family” might have again a scandal. The Jews – believers and non-believers – who live in Germany and in Europe are facing a situation right now that might get worse in the future and it is similar to the situation that was before the World War II, in the first years of fascism.

It is seemed recently that after the horror of the Holocaust, the situation would not repeat, but, unfortunately, everything is possible in our world now. Particularly, what is happening in Germany. As the officious resource “German Wave” (DW) admits, Germany is starting a very interesting process: German Jews have started to vote for “right-populist”, “anti-Semites”, non-systemic party “Alternative for Germany” (AfD) that is disrespected by other political forces. Despite the fact that the head of the Jewish community in Germany considers that it is absolutely unacceptable.

How Is It Possible To Happen In Germany?

There is a simple explanation. Thanks to the ruling class, Germany has become a bright “immigrant country” for the last decade and its trends are formed not by non-confessed in Nazi crimes politically correct Germans but mostly by immigrants from Muslims countries. These people, who came to adjust Germany to themselves and their needs, do not know what “political correctness” is and, for them, the Jews are less associated with the image of enemy rather than for Nazis. For Nazis, it was an ideological and racial hostility but for the new oppressors it is also a civilization, religious and cultural hostility.

Meanwhile, the German government that is used to deal with law-obedient citizens tries to show its diligent “tolerance’’ to new arrived millions of immigrants, however, it is not capable to protect its Burgers and, especially, about two hundreds of Jewish citizens. At the same time, “refugees” and new immigrants from Muslims countries easily get away with everything. That’s why, now, life of Jews in Germany is getting unbearable and it looks like it was in Nazis times. More and more attacks are happening on their cultural and religious centers, despite the fact that, they are guarded by German police and Israel security. Rabbis and people wearing traditional Jewish clothe are being attacked when they come out of home. Muslims children beat their Israel peers and sometimes even their teachers in state schools. The noisy Muslims demonstrations occasionally happen with callings to kill the Jews and send them to gas stoves, especially, when the situation in the Middle East gets critical.

All of these are happening in the country which officially declared the concept Nie Wieder (Never again) and the chancellor of which, Angela Merkel, declares that “anyone who beats a person who wears a kippah, beats all of us. Those who destroy Jewish tombstones offend our culture. Anyone who attacks a synagogue attacks the basis of our free society”.

In reality, the German government does not punish Muslims who participate in it but the government punishes the German if someone foolishly and careless says and does something that can be described as antisemitism. And it can happen not because of disgraceful actions on old Jewish cemetery but only because of a phrase like “damn Jews”. The German will be arrested for this at once and an immigrant will not. But if the Jews are really cared about who poisons their life? Who is going to deprive them of their German future and make them again pack their luggage to send them far away?

Jewish Organizations Raise the Alarm?

However, in reality, we have the following: Jewish organizations of Germany raise the alarm due to the increase of antisemitism actions in the immigrant’s community and antisemitism is becoming again something usual. This idea was announced by the president of Berlin department of American-Jewish committee, Berger Deidre, in his open letter to the members of Bundestag:” We are highly concerned that there is no taboo on open anti-Semitic expressions in protests”. He meant the participants of demonstrations that except “Allah Akbar” shout: “death to the Jews”, “Jews, get out of the country”, “the Jews – coward pigs”.

The former president of Central Jewish committee in Germany, Dieter Graumann, admitted to the American TV channel CBS: “It was not like that before. The crowd shouts out in the streets: the Jews must be poisoned with gas, be cut and burnt!”. But at the same time, this Central committee warns the members of the Jewish community not to vote for the party “Alternative for Germany” that is against a mass immigration to Germany and it does not think, unlike the representatives of the establishment, that “Islam is a part of Germany”. The heads of the Jewish community in Germany require from its members “not to give in the anti-Muslim and provocative rhetoric of “Alternative for Germany”. According to its member, Charlotte Knobloch, “it is hard to overcome the dearness and lies of “Alternative for Germany” that uses in its goals the Jews’ worries about the antisemitism disturbances within Muslims in Germany”. She claims that voting for the party “Alternative for German” is not acceptable for German Jews.

Graumann, who survived terrible riots and huntings for the Jews in Nazi Germany being a little girl, is not alone. The vice president of Central committee, Abraham Lehrer, is also “concerned” about the party “Alternative for Germany”.

At This Time…

Meanwhile, the leader of the party “Alternative for Germany” Frauke Petry in her interview to Die Welt named her party “one of political guarantees for the Jews’ life in the times of illegal antisemitism immigration to Germany”.

The party acts actively within German Jews. It agitates them not only to vote for it at the election but, also, to join it. This party thinks carefully about this category of voters and it even condemned and was ready to fire one of its leaders – the chairman of the parliamentary fraction AfD in Thuringia, Bjorn Hecke, who was not against the Jews but, in November 2017, he announced openly that the German is “the one nation in the world that set the monument of shame in the heart of its capital”. He meant the memorial that was set in the center of Berlin and was dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust. Despite the fact, it is not like it is wrong, because he named the persecutions of the Jews, which were happening not only in Germany in those times, “the shame” for Germany.

How The Sense Of Self-Preservation Works

Here the most interesting part begins. According to Die Zeit, the number of Jews within the members of antisemitism AfD is “disproportionately” great. The member of AfD from Lörrach (in Baden-Württemberg) Wolfgang Ful explained his choice to the radio Deutschlandfunk: “You see how students in schools are changing, how other children are attacking your children and you understand that the word “Jews” became again a swearing in a school”. It is very important for him because AfD is the most essential critic of Angela Merkel’ policy which is the policy of open doors.

One of the colleagues of Ful’s party, Aleksandr Berezovskyi, born in Ukraine, admitted in his interview to Die Zeit that he is really afraid of “Islamization of society”.

And last: What is “The Secret” of Disagreement Between Jewish “Top” and “Bottom”?

The leaders of the Jewish party in Germany condemn sharply the actions of AfD, while the party is getting popular within ordinary Jews, and this situation shows an unfortunate truth. Jewish ”top” is still pretending that it believes in the illusions of “polite correctness”, “tolerance” and “multiculturalism”, defends “the right for immigration” even the rights of those who do not want hear about the rights of others. Jewish “bottom”, who has to deal with costs of this policy, actively join “anti-Semitic” party because they cannot see any best protection. The German authority only imitates their care, while Brussels is planning a new wave of immigrants in Europe (Commissioner Avramopoulos is talking about 6 millions), and the German industrialists announce that the economics cannot develop without immigrants (who actually do not want to work and want only to live on social benefits which are seemed very generous for them). “The secret” of this opposition in Jewish milieu is that “the top” is a part of the top globalist project and must defend quasi democratic and liberal values. And they do not care absolutely about even their Jewish “bottom” that is under more danger than others.

The most essential thing is keep saving their posts and obeying to the globalist sponsors and “charity”. However, the part of “the bottom” still believes the head of their community. There are always enough people who are driven by career and ambition. And some even believe in it because of a principle: if we can move free from one country to another, so the other can do the same. However, they forget who “the others” are.

The Same Mistakes Again?

Well, Jewish history has had this situation several times. It was well known that anti- Semite Hitler would be cruel towards the Jews when he got the power. It was known in 1920 when the American intelligence paid attention to the future Fuhrer. This Austrian corporal would have never been the German leader without the comprehensive help of the US and other countries. A lot of Jews surrounded US president Franklin Roosevelt but it did not stop Washington (that was preparing the World War and its domination over the whole world after war) from sacrificing European Jewish people for the sake of their global ambitions. It looks very similar to what is happening now with European Jews in Germany, France and other European countries which are involved in the global project of a new tower of Babel, the project that cannot succeed without massive immigration. Of course, later, the managers of this quasi liberal project want to create a new tough police order in their new world by eliminating democratic rights and freedom under the pretext of the threat coming from Islamic terrorism. But, firstly, they need victims for this, lots of victims. And who will get this role?

Coming to America: Somalia & Egypt Exporting Islamic Misogyny FGM

Genital Mutilation Imposes Segregation on Immigrants’ American Daughters


The imported practice of genital mutilation can segregate hundreds of thousands of American girls from their peers in mainstream American society, say two New York psychologists.

The hidden segregation, however, is being ended by President Donald Trump and his deputies, who announced mid-March a new national campaign against “Female Genital Mutilation” that is commonplace in some immigrant communities.

Genital cutting by immigrant parents “sets these [American victims] apart from the mainstream culture and may complicate their efforts to adjust to life in the United States and cause intergenerational conflict in some families,” according to Adeyinka M. Akinsulure-Smith and Evangeline I. Sicalides, the authors of “Female Genital Cutting in the United States: Implications for Mental Health Professionals.”

Immigrant “parents may consider it important for their [American] daughters to be cut, regardless of the girls’ wishes, as a way to maintain their identity with the family and its [foreign] cultural community of origin. Others may want the girls in their family to undergo FGC as a way to protect them from aspects of American culture,” according to their article published in the October 2016 issue of Professional Psychology: Research and Practice.

Female genital cutting (FGC) and female circumcision (FC) are politically correct terms for the practice of “Female Genital Mutilation.” The process removes part or all of the clitoris, or even all of the external genitalia, in female infants, children or adults. The practice is widespread in Islamic northern Africa, where the most radical versions of the process are inflicted in Somalia. In many cases, the damaged woman is made unable to provide genital lubrication, which is deemed sexually distasteful in some communities that practice FGM.

FGM is in the news because Trump’s deputies at the Department of Justice and the FBI have promised to end the practice — and have already arrested a group of Muslim doctors in Detroit for performing FGM on several American girls. “The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law,” said the acting U.S. Attorney in Detroit, Daniel Lemisch.

Trump’s effort to save hundreds of thousands of Americans girls from the peculiar institution replaces the say-nothing, see-nothing policy of the pro-immigration,  pro-multicultural policy imposed by former President Barack Obama.

The two New York psychologists are not political activists seeking to reduce and protect the practice as it spreads by immigration into Western Europe and the United States. Instead, they are therapists who help other experts deal with the after-effects of the imported practice.

[I]t is our professional and ethical responsibility to be informed about this cultural practice, and to possess the awareness, knowledge, and skills to intervene,” the psychologists say.

The psychologists’ primary concern is that females who have been cut may become patients of U.S. healthcare providers who have no awareness or acceptance of the immigrant practice and may bring “unexamined opinions and attitudes” to their treatment of these females.

Many Believe Ethiopia Was The First Country To Accept Christianity – Now For Some It Is Being Outlawed

Posted by addisethiopia on April 24, 2017

Christianity could be outlawed in Ethiopia for smaller congregations and house churches where worshipers meet for less formal prayer or smaller services.

Tigray State, in the north of Ethiopia, is considering changing its laws to ban Christian activities outside official church compounds, reports World Watch Monitor.

Evangelical Christians and other non-Orthodox groups would be the worst hit by the new law, which will set a minimum number of 6,000 members for any church wanted to authorized as official. Proselytism outside the new official compounds will be outlawed.

A similar law has already been enacted in a neighboring state.

Ethiopia, Africa’s oldest independent country, is believed by some to have been the first nation in the world to accept Christianity as its religion. Like many countries in Africa, the religious landscape is being changed by fast-growing Pentecostal churches.

It is currently at number 22 on the World Watch List of Christian persecution.

Christian believers are increasingly threatened by Islamist extremists.

WWM tells the story of Tutu, a widow, and her son who live in a mainly Muslim area and have faced difficulties since her husband died.

‘After his burial, local Muslims dug up his body and dumped it by the side of the road. In January, Biruk was assaulted and told that he and his mother would continue to face trouble until they converted to Islam. On March 4, their house was burned down,’ reports WWM.

My Note: I would be more than glad if those “evangelical Christians” were converting Muslims to Christianity. But, no!– though there may be individual Protestants who really love Our Lord and engage in this sort of conversion activity – the vast majority of them attempts to proselytize among Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo faithful, who are already Christians that practice the oldest of all Christian rites. (Converting these ancient Christians to any other faith/ideology is a HUGE SIN). Imagine these Protestants, who have discovered Jesus 500 years ago, telling Ethiopian Christians who know Their Lord for two Millennia to accept the new Jesus. Is there a new Lord?

In fact, in some Muslim majority regions like Jimma, some Protestant groups had joined Muslims to persecute indigenous Orthodox Christians.

I believe it’s is irresponsible, biased and dangerous that a protestant organization like OpenDoors“ placed Christian Ethiopia at number 22 on the World Watch List of Christian persecution – mind you, higher than notorious Christian persecutor states like Turkey, Palestinian Territories, Algeria, Kuwait, UAE, Indonesia, Bangladesh etc. Either they are ignorant and wicked or they have joined the luciferian forces to wage war against Orthodox Christians. It must be tempting for Satan to challenge the first Christian nation!

How primitive and boaring it has become that OpenDoors always puts North Korea (a Buddhist nation that doesn’t belong to Christians) at number 1 to appease the number one persecutors of Christians: Islamic countries. where Christians are indigenous.

A Global Competition For Influence In Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia on April 24, 2017

Source: La Stampa (Italy), April, 2017

  • Islam making major inroads in the east African nation. China pumping millions into infrastructure and industry. An Italian reporter gauges changes in the former colony.
  • Other Ethiopians claim they have never seen so many imams and people wearing the Islamic veil as they do now.
  • While China focuses on business interests, the Arab states seek to indoctrinate ordinary Ethiopian
  • The fear now is that protesters and farmers will see radical Islam as a source of hope against the Orthodox Christian elite that rules the capital

On the flight from Rome to Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, flight attendants hand out Chinese-language magazines. And in the city’s Bole International Airport, the only cigarettes available are of the made-in-Chinese variety. Marlboros aren’t an option.

Outside the airport, at the first traffic light, my taxi jockeys for position with a economy car driven by a man who appears to be Chinese. “Since they began arriving a few years ago I see them everywhere,” my Ethiopian taxi driver complains. “We used to call white people ferenji, which means foreigner, but now we mainly use it for the Chinese. They built everything here: the African Union (AU) headquarters, the new light rail system, the Modjo-Hawassa highway, even the railway to Djibouti.”

Here in Ethiopia, where the Italian Empire went to ruin in the ashes of World War II, China is building a new empire of its own.

Heading out from the capital of one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, another feature of the landscape catches the eye. A minaret soars over every urban center, community, or village that appears in the distance — many have even more than one. “Those are all financed by oil money,” the driver explains. “For the last 20 years Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait have been building mosques here.

Money And Influence

It doesn’t take long upon arriving in Ethiopia to understand the forces at play. While China builds roads and highways in exchange for access to the country’s lucrative natural resources, the monarchies of the Arabian Gulf establish their influence in rural areas by building mosques and spreading Sunni Islam.

Journalist and Africa expert Howard W. French says that Chinese “neocolonialism” began in Ethiopia about two decades ago, in 1996. That year, in a visit to Addis Ababa, then-Chinese President Jiang Zemin proposed the establishment of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC). Upon his return to China, Zemin urged industrialists to invest in Africa. Since then the Chinese presence on the continent has grown and become ever more visible, with Chinese-built roads, railroads, and industrial hubs popping up across Africa.

Buckling under the pressure of a food crisis and an influx of refugees escaping long-running instability in the Horn of Africa, the Ethiopian government sold the country’s best land to Chinese investors, who used it to produce grain for export.

The new railway linking Addis Ababa to the port of Djibouti, 750 km away, grants the landlocked nation access to the sea and was built by the China Railway Group (CREC) and the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, a subsidiary of the China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC). The three-lane Modjo-Hawassa highway, at a cost of $700 million, is also being built by the Chinese, as was the $500 million light rail system that cuts through Addis Ababa’s traffic. The two-line system is the first to be built in sub-Saharan Africa.

But Beijing isn’t solely interested in business investments on the world’s second-largest continent. China is building its first overseas military base in neighboring Djibouti, which will include an air force base, lodging for thousands of soldiers, and a deep-water port that can host large warships.

Investing In The Future

The expropriation of land for these projects has run into intense opposition from local tribes in Ethiopia. Last summer, protests erupted across Oromia, the country’s largest and most populous region, spurring a brutal crackdown that killed thousands and forced the regime to declare a state of emergency.

The fear now is that protesters and farmers will see radical Islam as a source of hope against the Orthodox Christian elite that rules the capital,” says a youth who asks to remain anonymous.

Other Ethiopians claim they have never seen so many imams and people wearing the Islamic veil as they do now. Ethiopia has ancient ties to Islam and was the site of the first ever hijra — the journey undertaken by the prophet Muhammad’s earliest followers to escape persecution in Mecca. It is also home to Negash, the oldest Muslim settlement in Africa.

Experts claim that despite this long history, the Gulf monarchies embarked upon a targeted “Islamization” of the country after the fall of the Soviet Union and Ethiopia’s communist dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1991. This was done by building mosques in Muslim-majority areas and spreading their version of the Sunni faith in Islamic schools.

“In 1991 Riyadh took 2,000 young Ethiopians to study the Koran in Saudi Arabia, sending them back as imams two years later,” says an anonymous source. “That’s when burqas and minarets began to appear everywhere, and the Gulf monarchies want to build two mosques for every community.”

While China focuses on business interests, the Arab states seek to indoctrinate ordinary Ethiopians. Ethiopia has one of the highest population growth rates in Africa and is projected to reach 210 million people in 2060, up from the current 99 million. Their goals and tactics vary. But Beijing and the Arabian Gulf both see Ethiopia, whose global importance will only continue to grow, as an area full of promise.

Christian Genocide | Turks Tore The Pregnant Woman’s Womb, Took Off The Baby And Put It On Her Breast“

Posted by addisethiopia on April 24, 2017

I was a 6-year-old child when my mother entrusted me to the American orphanage and promised to take me back. There was an Armenian church outside the orphanage fence where Turks often appeared and tormented Armenian women and children. When those people looked inside our windows, we tremulously ran away. One of the orphans, Sako, once called us to watch what was going on beyond the fence. It was awful…

Turks tore the pregnant woman’s womb, took off the baby and put it on her breast. I fainted…When I opened my eyes, the orphans had surrounded me telling terrible stories with frightened looks. I closed my ears and screamed.” Her mother found her after the massacres, and they moved together to the village of Basargechar where she married Yeghishe Markosian and gave birth to 11 children. She died in 1990.

Denial is The Final Stage of Genocide

Within in a 2-year period 1.5 million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were massacred by the Turkish. To this day it is illegal to talk about the Armenian Genocide in Turkey.

On April 25, 1915 through a series of brutal events, the Turkish government began their execution of the Armenians. The Turks burned, drowned, starved, crucified and slaughtered in the pursuit to eliminate christian Armenians.

There had always been trouble between the Christian Armenians and the Turks in the Ottoman Empire. The Armenians were taxed more for being Christian, and often not treated fairly. They turned to Russia for freedom and independence. It was during World War I, that the Armenians sided with Russia against Turkey, in response came the Genocide.

Today, April 24th marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Still a century later people refuse to acknowledge the massacres as a genocide including the Turks. Many spoke out, showing their support as the anniversary approached including Germany, the European Parliament, Pope Francis, François Hollande the French president and Vladimir Putin.

Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan spoke the following statement: “Recognition of the genocide is a triumph of human conscience and justice over intolerance and hatred.”

What happened to the Armenians during World War I inspired Hitler during World War II in his genocide of the Jewish people. Hitler spoke to the commanding generals at Obersalzberg on August 22, 1939 and declared:

I have issued the command – and I’ll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad – that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formations in readiness – for the present only in the East – with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”

Russia Bans Jehovah’s Witnesses As An “Extremist Organization”

Posted by addisethiopia on April 21, 2017

Russians Will No Longer Have To Dread The Doorbell

On Thursday, Russia’s Supreme Court ruled that Jehovah’s Witnesses was an “extremist” organization after the justice ministry applied for an order to shut down the group’s national headquarters near St Petersburg, Russian TASS news agency reported. Russian authorities had put several of the group’s publications on a list of banned extremist literature, and prosecutors have long cast it as an organization that destroys families, fosters hatred and threatens lives, a description the organization says is false.

In its lawsuit the Justice Ministry mentioned various violations, exposed by a snap check of the organization’s activities, including those of the federal law on resistance to extremist activities. The Justice Ministry wanted the organization and its 395 local chapters to be declared as extremist and outlawed and its properties to be confiscated.

The Administrative Center of Jehovah’s Witnesses told TASS it found this affair very worrisome, because a future decision would concern 175,000 practicing believers. ACJW spokesman Ivan Bilenko said the organization was prepared to seek protection of its rights in courts of any instance.

A court in Moscow on October 12, 2016 warned Jehovah’s Witnesses over what it ruled was extremist activities. Under Russian legislation the religious organization in question is to be closed down if it fails to eliminate the exposed violations within the required deadline or if new evidence of its extremist activities come to light. The Moscow City Court on January 16, 2017 upheld the warning over extremism handed to Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Selected Comments:

Excellent move. JW are both extremist and anti-Christian. They are a subversive group, controlled by Freemasons, designed to control people and destroy true Christianity. Now for Islam…..

But sadly the the worst (((parasites))) remain.. Islam

Good Russia being a Christian nation has every right to boot out blasphemers of Christ

I wish Russia could do the same to islam, but i don’t think Russia would. There are too many muslims in Russia. The real extremist are the ones that bless your neck with a sword in your own blood. Most likely muslims will soon be converted to Orthodox Christians after War in Syria is over.

Yes islam should be banned all over the globe. But we all know jehovas witness is an american sect, and therefore possibly spies.

They should label Islam as an “Extremist Organization”. Islam and Muslims are 1000000X more extreme and violent than the Jahovas Witnsses crackpots.

Both are cults. They do not believe in the divinity of Christ.

Russia is an orthodox nation, the JW refuse to bow before Russia and exist in their own enclaves. The expulsion of the JW cult is a stepping stone to flush all foreign religions out of Russia

This is what happens when religious groups open their doors to freemasonry ,and hence ,intelligence agency manipulation. Its such a shame for the vast majority of these faithful honest believers.

What was that other US-origin religious organisation that was pressured by the Russian government? Office raids and stuff? And also had links with the CIA? Oh yea, Church Of Scientology!

The Armenian Genocide Finally Gets Its Due With the Film ‘The Promise’ – ክርስቲያን ኢትዮጵያ ይህን ታሪክ ማወቅ፣ ፊልሙንም ማየት አለባት

Posted by addisethiopia on April 19, 2017

An epic motion picture, it will introduce general audiences to a tragic chapter of history that has been shamefully denied for far too long.

Every year, on April 24, a solemn procession of men, women, and children commences in Yerevan, the capital of the former Soviet republic of Armenia. A sea of sad Armenian faces makes its way up to the hill of Tsitsernakaberd to the Armenian Genocide Memorial. It is here that every year the victims of one of the 20th century’s greatest crimes are quietly honored.

An ancient Christian country located just south of Russia and east of Turkey, Armenia has seen much suffering in its long history. However, of all the tragedies experienced by this small yet resilient nation, none compares to the enormity of the Armenian genocide of 1915. The genocide was committed by the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Possessed by a fanatical nationalism, the ruling Young Turk government accused its Christian Armenian subjects of sympathizing with the hated Russian enemy. What followed was the planned, systematic, and ruthless mass murder of as many as 1.5 million Armenian civilians.

Of all the sufferers of the war,” wrote American diplomat Lewis Einstein in The Nation in 1920, “none have endured more than the Armenians, victims less of its horrors than of the Turkish Government’s diabolical policy of murder.” To this day, Turkey continues to deny the historical reality of the genocide, despite overwhelming scholarly evidence. After over 100 years, the denial of this horrific crime has left the Armenian people in state of incomplete mourning.

Terry George’s forthcoming film The Promise captures the magnitude of this history in a way that no prior film on the genocide has done before. With its sweeping cinematography, powerful acting, and all-encompassing story, it is a truly epic work that effectively and humanely conveys the story of the tragedy.

Bringing The Tragedy To The Screen

Given Turkey’s continued stance of denial, making a film about the genocide has never been an easy task. Efforts to produce such a film in Hollywood were consistently blocked by the Turkish government. The most infamous instance of this was in the 1930s, when Ankara pressured MGM into abandoning plans for producing an adaptation of the novel The Forty Days of Musa Dagh, by Austrian-Jewish writer Franz Werfel. The novel was based on real events in which a small community of Armenians living in the mountains of Turkey’s present-day Hatay Province (on the Syrian border) defended themselves against deportation by Ottoman authorities.

Due to Werfel’s Jewish background, the novel was banned in Hitler’s Third Reich and subject to mass book burnings. The book eventually came to the attention of MGM’s Irving Thalberg, who bought the rights and decided to have it produced as a film. Pre-production began in 1934. Clark Gable was to be the star. However, due to pressure from the Turkish government (including anti-Semitic threats by Ankara against MGM as a “Jewish studio”), Louis B. Mayer canceled the project.

There are numerous reasons why a film like that has not been made by Hollywood over the past century,” said Eric Esrailian, a UCLA doctor who played a major role in the production of The Promise. “It is not as though people have avoided spending money producing other films for all these years. All elements—from studios to producers to actors to crew—have felt pressure or intimidation in one form or another.”

There were indeed films produced about the genocide. The earliest of these, Ravished Armenia (1919), starred a survivor of the genocide, Aurora Mardiganian, and was produced by MGM at a time when Turkey did not have the clout to stop such productions. The box office proceeds went to the aid of Armenian orphans through the Near East Relief. Unfortunately, the film was eventually lost and only recently turned up as a fragmentary copy in post-Soviet Armenia.

The films that followed, such as Henrik Malyan’s Nahapet (1977), Atom Egoyan’s Ararat (2002), Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s Lark Farm (2007), and Fatih Akin’s The Cut (2014), were unable to reach a mass American audience. Distributed by Warner Bros., Elia Kazan’s America America (1963) vividly depicted the persecution of Armenians and Greeks under Ottoman rule. However, its main focus was the protagonist’s quest to emigrate to the United States.

Given this history, Armenian-American philanthropist Kirk Kerkorian believed that the time had come .for a Hollywood film on the genocide. Kerkorian, who passed away in 2015, first conceived of the idea in 2010, but it acquired momentum in 2012 when Kerkorian set up Survival Pictures. He entrusted his close friend Eric Esrailian to the task of bringing the story of the genocide to a general American audience, and enlisted veteran producers Mike Medavoy and William Horberg.

We wanted to carefully find the right people—committed people with sincere intentions in their hearts—to come together,” said Esrailian. “Thankfully, we were successful, and the result has been everything we hoped for. In addition, we also grew together as a family of people, both in front of and behind the camera. The entire project is thanks to the courage and dedication of Kirk Kerkorian, and people around the world will be thanking him for generations to come.”

An All-Encompassing Epic

The Promise is an all-encompassing epic that captures every aspect of the Armenian genocide and of the historical time and place in which the tragedy was situated. Early proposals for films on the genocide tended to focus on specific subjects and stories, such as the heroic defense of Musa Dagh or the suffering of the Armenian composer Komitas. The Promise does not limit itself in this regard. Instead, it presents an entire composite picture of the history. All elements of the genocide are brought together into one concise narrative. Ara Sarafian, the director of the Gomidas Institute in London and the leading authority on the history of the genocide in the English language, noted that The Promise “encompasses specific events, as well as generic ones, that defined the destruction of the Armenians.” “The geography of the film, the locations, the movement of people, were all in good order,” he noted. “The cinematography is amazing, and the actors are really good. They hold the narrative together. However, most importantly, the key themes were historically accurate. The producers did not take license to go beyond the historical material at hand yet they managed to capture much of the enormity of the Armenian genocide.”

The film’s story centers on the aspiring doctor Mikael Pogosian (well-portrayed by Oscar Issac) who leaves his native village in southern Turkey to study medicine in Constantinople. Betrothed to a young woman in his village, Mikael falls in love with the beautiful Ana Khesarian (Charlotte Le Bon), a French-Armenian woman, in Constantinople. However, she is also involved with Associated Press reporter Chris Myers (Christian Bale). In the midst of this love story, all three of the characters personally experience the genocide unfolding before them in different ways. Overall, though, it is clearly Isaac’s character, Mikael, who emerges as the main protagonist of the film. He is almost like a hero in a work by one of the great Armenian national writers like Raffi or Khachatur Abovian, yet his experiences are based entirely on actual historical events.

The film’s main characters are fictional, but they are an amalgam of profiles,” said Esrailian. “We wanted to involve the viewer in the film’s story and to open the door to interest in historical events that have been denied and suppressed for decades. We also wanted to highlight the patterns of man’s inhumanity to man that are sadly being replicated in the world today.”

Director Terry George succeeds masterfully in concisely capturing the entire scope of the history of the genocide. The fictional village of Siroun (meaning “beautiful” in the Armenian language) in Southern Turkey, in an area that Armenians know by the name “Cilicia,” perfectly represents the pre-genocide Ottoman Armenian village life. It captures an idyllic time, highlighting the continuity of local Armenian life and customs before they were destroyed. The aspiring doctor Mikael represents the hope of the Armenian community for a better future in the Ottoman Empire.

Mikael’s journey to Constantinople (Istanbul) reveals yet aspect of Ottoman Armenian life before the genocide: the prosperous intellectual, political, and financial class of Armenians in the Ottoman capital. The film shows their prosperous homes, churches, and trading communities. Sporting the latest European fashions, yet part of the fabric of Ottoman cultural and social life, these Armenians lived between Europe and Asia in a city straddling both continents.

The film also alludes to the prosperous life of the historically significant Armenian diaspora community in France, as personified by Charlotte Le Bon’s character, Ana. However, Ana’s character is representative of even more. Just as Mikael represents the aspirations for Ottoman Armenians, so does Ana represent the affinities of the prosperous Armenian urban class for Europe. Although played by a French actress, Ana’s distinctive “Armenian” appearance also adds to the sense of idyllic, almost melancholy nostalgia of pre-war Ottoman Armenian life.

Another character, Mikael’s friend, the Turkish playboy Emre (Marwan Kenzari), represents the friendships that existed between Armenians and Muslims before the genocide and those Muslims who, later, went out of their way to save their Armenian friends and neighbors. “The inclusion of righteous Muslims as represented by Emre who saves his Armenian friend and is shot or the sub-governor (kaymakam) who helps Armenians escape was a historically important aspect of the film,” noted Sarafian.

However, it is against this backdrop of the pre-war Ottoman Empire that storm clouds begin to form. At a party overlooking the Bosphorous, a drunken Chris takes aim at Ottoman officials and their German guests for the entrance of German ships in Turkish waters leading up to the Ottoman entry in the war. When the Ottoman Empire does enter the war, the angry demonstrations in the streets against the Entente foreshadow pogroms against Armenians in Constantinople later in the film. Soon, arrests against Armenian elites begin in Constantinople, including the arrest of Komitas, which is also highlighted in the film. In a village in the interior of Turkey, Chris finds traces of a massacre against Armenians and photographs the carnage, recalling the work of Armin T. Wegner, a German medic who documented the genocide in photographs. Off in the distance, he sees a caravan of Armenians being marched to their death into the desert.

As the film progresses, the grim reality of the full scale of the genocide becomes even more apparent. Basic humanity is openly disregarded. Mikael is eventually arrested and, with other Armenians, forced into slave labor to build a railroad in the Amanus Mountains. In these scenes, Armenians are wantonly shot and beaten. A former Armenian clown from a Constantinople circus has become reduced to a sad shadow of his former self. Mikael escapes, but encounters cattle cars transporting Armenians to the so-called “resettlement zone” in the Syrian Desert. From these cattle cars spring forth hands of thousands of Armenians, men and women, young and old, who desperately relish the mere touch of rain water. It is a powerful, yet chilling image.

One of the film’s saddest and most difficult scenes depicts the massacre of the Armenian villagers from Siroun, causing Mikael to break down and sob. Such scenes are sensitively and tastefully done, but in the words of Sarafian, are “not ‘toned down’ to accommodate Western sensibilities.”

If nostalgia and suffering are major themes of the film, then so is courage. The film depicts the experience of American and European Christian missionaries in saving Armenian orphans and of righteous Muslims and Turks who protect Armenians. Ambassador Henry Morgenthau Sr. also appears in the film and engages in a tense discussion with Talaat Pasha, the architect of the genocide. The film also depicts perhaps the greatest act of bravery of all: the defense of Musa Dagh by a hundreds of Armenian men, women, and children. The final scenes illustrate the French rescue efforts to save these Armenians. The frantic escape of these refugees to the Mediterranean coast and onto the French ships is a story familiar to most Armenians who fled the genocide. Although a more hardened and mature Mikael contemplates revenge for everything he has experienced, Ana insists that “our survival will be our revenge.”

Although The Promise is a masterfully done film, it will undoubtedly face challenges. Even prior to its US release, Turkish nationalists have already taken to IMDb, Twitter, and Facebook to block and downgrade the film as much as possible.

Whether or not the filmmakers managed their blend to appeal to today’s easily distracted audiences is something that the box offices will show,” said Sarafian. “Undoubtedly, the final result will also depend on the success (or failure) of misinformation campaigns that the denialist lobby will organize. After all, the denial of the Armenian genocide, unlike the denial of the Holocaust, is unfortunately still fair game.”

Still, for many Armenians who have long awaited a Hollywood film on the genocide, this is it. The Promise is an epic motion picture that will introduce general audiences to a tragic chapter of history that has been shamefully denied for far too long. It is an accomplishment to which many Armenians will respond with a rousing “apres” (“well-done”).

Ancient Sinai Monastery Targeted By Islamic Militants In Egypt A Week After Coptic Church Bombings

Posted by addisethiopia on April 19, 2017

Islamist gunmen attacked security forces near St Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt’s south Sinai yesterday, killing at least one police officer and injuring four others outside one of the world’s most important and oldest Christian sites.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on a police checkpoint about 800 metres from the entrance to the monastery, which comes just 10 days before Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Egypt.

The incident follows two deadly suicide bombings on Coptic Christian churches last week, which were also claimed by Islamic State and which plunged the country into mourning and marked one of the bloodiest days for the country’s Christian minority in decades.

St Catherine’s, founded in the 6th century and located at the foot of Mount Sinai, is one of the oldest Christian monasteries in the world and a UNESCO world heritage site. It is part of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Egypt’s Christian minority, which makes up about 10 per cent of the country’s 92 million people, has increasingly been targeted by Islamist militants, with three deadly church attacks in the span of four months.

In February, scores of Christian families and students fled North Sinai province after a spate of targeted killings.

A successful assault on St Catherine’s would be the latest challenge to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who has pledged to protect the religious minority as part of his campaign against extremism.
