The Whole World Should Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital – Simply Because it is

Posted by addisethiopia on December 7, 2017

There is no greater view in the world than that of Jerusalem from the top of the Mount of Olives. There isn’t a more wonderful picture of world history, of rhythm and harmony, of political breadth and religious magnificence. The Holy City is a labyrinth of streets and alleys surrounded by fortifications and battlements, all bowing toward the Temple at the obstinate heart. It is a rigidity and inflexibility which stood against invaders for a thousand years. Perhaps that same obstinacy was the cause of her destruction and the ejection of Israel from the land of her forefathers. Did Jesus have a premonition?

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it…(Lk 19:41).

And Jews have been weeping over it for two millennia – its destruction, desolation, and days of vengeance. There came the prophesied distress upon the land and wrath upon its hardhearted people. The Jerusalem which condemned and crucified Jesus was extinguished in a hail of stones and inferno in AD70.

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled (21:24).

Until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled?

The United States of America has decided to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city. Or, if you prefer, Donald Trump has decided to honor his campaign pledge to the Zionist Jewish lobby. Whether you agree or not with this decision largely determines which of these reasonings you favour. In a sense, it doesn’t really matter: Israel has always regarded Jerusalem as its capital city, whether or not the rest of the world recognises it. The Muslim world (in so far as it exists) never has and never will, not least because parts of that world do not even recognize the State of Israel. East Jerusalem, as far they are concerned, is the capital of the State of Palestine (in so far as it exists), and so an indivisible Jerusalem is not only a threat to Middle East peace; it is an ontological absurdity.

As the supersessionists now commence exegetical battle with the biblical literalists and the pre-tribulation rapturists over the eschatological significance (or otherwise) of the US decision (/Trump’s Zionist collusion), it is worth reflecting on the fact that the city walls of modern Jerusalem are patently not the same as those which existed in the time of Solomon or Herod, or even Jesus: Old Jerusalem, the City of David (Zion) is just a small corner of today’s sprawling metropolis, which has stretched over the centuries along the Road to Damascus and the Joffa Road, incorporating the hills of Gareb, Goah, the Valley of Dead Bodies and the Kidron brook. The growth of the city has been constant and incremental.

So when the US declares its intention to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, it is not a dogmatic assertion of boundaries and borders: there is (or ought to be) no threat to any Middle East peace plan (in so far as it exists), for the modern enlargement of Jerusalem extends well beyond Zion, and Donald Trump isn’t about to insist that the new US embassy should be built right next to Temple Mount in the hope of basking in the shekinah glory of the Holy City.

And yet…

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner.
And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.
And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever
(Jer 31:38-40).

Until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled?

There are those, of course, who will wonder why on earth fundamentalist obsessions with an ancient religious book should determine contemporary geo-politics. Yet one man’s fundamentalist obsession is another’s divine promise.

Perhaps the best way now would be for the whole world to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and they could construct their embassies in their preferred quarters. Let the Muslim world opt for the horse gate toward the east, as they wish, and the US could occupy somewhere between the Tower of Hananeel and the Road to Damascus. And for those nations which can’t make up their minds, there is always the Valley of Dead Bodies toward the north, well outside the ancient city walls, where neither Israelis nor Palestinians care very much at all about the cursed ash of ancient sacrifice.

Selected Comments:

The Arabs can have half of Jerusalem when the Jews can have half of Mecca. Until then, the earthly Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel, the joy of the whole earth. This is just Donald Trump’s way of saying “Happy Christmas, Israel”, which I think is a sentiment we would all echo, even as we rejoice in a city which cannot be shaken, the Jerusalem that is above.

The Palestinians have had long enough to sort out a peace agreement, but won’t give up on the idea of wiping the Jews out who have been there for 3000+ years. Time to move on and ignore their protests. Well done Mr Trump.

It is rather ironic that Donald Trump( the man reviled by many) is taking the lead over Jerusalem taking its rightful place in the World (again)

My Note: Two years ago, on December 7, 2015, the Crescent Moon & Star of Islam manifested in the sky. On this very same day, presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump called for ‘total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. 730 days later, today, December 6, 2017, President Donald Trump reveals that the United States of America has decided to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city. Coincidence?

Horror As 1,000-Strong Mob Attacks Church Forcing Christians To Lock Themselves Inside


CHRISTIANS were forced to lock the doors of their church for their own safety as a furious mob launched an attack on the building as tensions continue to soar in Egypt

More than 1,000 people gathered outside a recently-renovated Coptic church in Mina, Egypt, to intimidate and threaten those inside.

Police were called on October 26 and the doors of the Saint George Church, as well as the on-site children’s nursery, was bolted shut for defence.

Despite the aggression of the crowd, it was the Copts who were held responsible for the incident.

The heads of the Coptic congregation in the area were forced into attending a peace meeting, which aimed to stop the conflict between the group and the local Muslim community.

A source close to the church said: “Copts had to agree to the reconciliation that will be held this evening in the village hall. A written agreement was presented that indicated a framework of friendliness, love and brotherhood.

A reconciliation and waiver of all records between the two sides must be signed, including a ‘non-provoke crisis’ clause.”

The “non-provoke clause” is particularly controversial, with critics saying it backs up attempts to close down the Coptic churches by sinister means.

In the week leading up to the church re-opening, flyers were posted across the area with taunting messages apparently written by Coptic leaders.

One said: “We re-opened the church against your will!”

However local Coptic leaders say the messages were written by Muslims in an attempt to stir up anger at their church.

It is just the latest in a long list of incidents in which Copts in Egypt were threatened.

Last month four churches in Mina, including the re-furbished one, were closed after furious locals launched vicious attacks on worshippers, emboldened by a lack of police support.

The Coptic leader in the region said authorities were doing nothing to bring those responsible to justice.

Anba Macarius said: “Churches are closed, the Coptic Christians are being attacked and their property destroyed, and there is no deterrent.

The Copts always pay the price of this coexistence, not the aggressors.

The reactions of officials are disappointing, and when there is any dispute or an attack, the first alternative is to close the church and put pressure only on the Copts with impunity for the aggressors.”

The Coptic Orthodox Church is the largest Christian church in Egypt and the Middle East’s biggest Christian community with a history dating back nearly 2,000 years.

Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s 90 million people, have long complained of discrimination under successive Egyptian leaders.

Egypt has been named one of the most dangerous in the world for churchgoers, with Egypt’s Christian community increasingly insecure since ISIS spread through Iraq and Syria in 2014, ruthlessly targeting religious minorities.

Selected Comments:

Can you imagine the outrage if it were the other way round.

Christians are the most persecuted group in the world. Even in the west, we are persecuted by the liberals. So much for tolerance and equality.

These are the people we should allow to come to the UK not the “others”

And still western Christian countries do nothing. We need to start supporting and protecting Christian minorities who are under threat by ‘others’.

The ‘others are getting support from the globalists who are driving the anti-Christianity uprising because as satanists that ‘other’ religion/cult is the nearest thing to it.

The ‘others’ are moslems, was that too difficult?

If you knew just how quickly Mr. Censor takes down my comments if I step even a cm over the line, you’d understand why I wrote ‘others’.

This Christmas Day should be declared as a national call to prayers for the Coptic church in Egypt by the Church of England and the Church of Scotland and others such as Methodists and Baptists. If ever there was a need or a reason for a joint statement on the Christian faith then this is the time. Comment please Archbishops, Pastors and Elders NOW – TODAY. Such vile attacks are not challenged enough by our churches here and our government has some of that blood on their hands for not speaking out and making this a priority. Christians and churches are being attacked here in Britain too and nothing is said or done. Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world at this time and we need to speak up and speak out.

Libya’s Slave Auctions And African Genocide: What Hillary Knew

Posted by addisethiopia on November 16, 2017

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in “liberated” Libya, but CNN’s crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Though CNN’s footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libya’s black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATO’s war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded the alarm of a genocide against black Libyans in progress committed by the very rebels the US, UK, France, and Gulf allies were arming – a fact so well-known that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was personally briefed and warned on the matter.

The Dangerous Myth of Gaddafi’s “African Mercenaries”

Among the foremost of these early critics at the time, Maximilian Forte, Associate Professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, published a 2012 book which exhaustively documented racially motivated crimes which came early and often during the armed uprising. His book, Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa, contains essential summary context laying out the role that international media played in 2011 and after, including CNN itself, in fueling the xenophobic campaign to scapegoat Libya’s over one million strong black population as “pro-Gaddafi mercenaries”.

According to Professor Forte:

Racial fear and xenophobia were at the very crux of the first public calls for Western military intervention, and were the basis for the first utterance of the need for a “no-fly zone” … The myth of the “African mercenary” was useful for the Libyan opposition, the NTC [National Transitional Council] and the militias, to insist that this was a war between “Gaddafi and the Libyan people,” as if he had no domestic support at all…

As Patrick Cockburn explained, the insurgents’ “explanation for the large pro-Gaddafi forces was that they were all mercenaries, mostly from black Africa, whose only motive was money.”

Gaddafi’s ‘pan-Africanist’ policies such as aggressive support for the creation of the African Union (in 2002), and a relatively open immigration policy allowing for the influx of sub-Saharan African migrants to work on Gaddafi’s massive building projects, stirred resentment and discontent within broader Arab Libyan society in the decade leading up to the 2011 war. This was the historical background which set the stage for the anti-Gaddafi rebels’ extraordinary claim that sub-Saharan “foreign mercenaries” were being used en masse by Gaddafi to target protesters (later proven false).

And these historic ethnic and racial dynamics were well understood by the US government long before official support to Libyan militant groups began – militants which were not only shown to have al-Qaeda links, but which declared “open season” on all black Libyans and migrant workers during the revolution. As the CIA’s own historical analysis of Libya’s internal dynamics spells out:

QADHAFI in 1998 adopted a decade-long pan-African policy that enabled large numbers of sub-Saharan migrants to enter Libya without visas to work in the construction and agricultural industries. Although sub-Saharan Africans provided a cheap labor source, they were poorly treated and were subjected to periodic mass expulsions. By the mid-2000s, domestic animosity toward African migrants

Similar to later developments in Syria, the media would uncritically echo whatever the “freedom fighting” rebels would feed it, thus this black foreign mercenary trope became an unquestioned reality spread from rebel propagandists to the Western public. Libyan opposition members even began claiming to be victims of wild attacks by roving bands of machete-wielding pro-Gaddafi blacks wearing tell-tale yellow hard hats – a symbol which also falsely began to be associated with “Gaddafi’s savage mercenaries” – resulting in subsequent mass arrests and executions of innocent black migrant construction workers.

CNN Spread the “Black Mercenary” Lie

The end result would of course be the widespread targeting and scapegoating of an entire ethnic population within Libya. This is demonstrated, for example, in the most well-known example of Tawergha, an entire town of 30,000 black and “dark-skinned” Libyans which vanished by August 2011 after its takeover by NATO-backed NTC Misratan brigades.

But it is important to remember that CNN itself at the time regularly promoted the false “black mercenary” narrative which helped fuel and excuse such atrocities, even though it is now much belatedly investigating and decrying Libya’s current migrant slave auctions, while leaving out the essential context which enabled such horrors in the first place. For example, the following February 2011 CNN reporting relied on unnamed opposition sources during the earliest days of the conflict to say:

Residents said hundreds of mercenaries from sub-Saharan Africa had been killed or captured while fighting for Gadhafi, but much of the army appears to have gone over to anti-government forces.

And a separate CNN article from the same month – though acknowledging that no CNN journalists were even inside the country – still uncritically reported:

Clashes broke out between a large crowd of demonstrators and people who appeared to be African mercenaries in the center of the city, according to an activist.

Yet another broadcast segment from February 2011 – the clip of which appears to have since been deleted from CNN’s site (but which is available on YouTube), asks the question: in Libya “just who is doing the dirty work?” – while answering that Gaddafi imported Chadian and Sudanese mercenaries to crack down on civilian protesters.

And those few examples are but a tiny sampling of CNN’s consistent spreading the dangerous myth throughout the early stages of the conflict – to say nothing of how ubiquitous the false rebel claims became among mainstream media generally.

US-backed Rebels and Ethnic Genocide

One of the few international correspondents to actually report the truth in real time while writing from inside Libya was The Independent’s (UK) Patrick Cockburn. In an August 2011 story he wrote as if attempting to warn the world about the future war crimes to come at the hands of the US-backed rebels:

The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya’s future. The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labelled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.

Subsequent stories of widespread torture and executions of black Libyans included a 2012 report in UK media which involved anti-Gaddafi “revolutionaries” filming themselves torturing black prisoners, making them eat the former Libyan national flag.

If reporters like Cockburn and even prominent human rights organizations (see Human Rights Watch, September 2011, Libya: Stop Arbitrary Arrests of Black Africans) understood what was happening months prior to height of NATO’s military campaign in support of the rebels, which ended in the brutal torture and field execution of Gaddafi, then what did one of the prime US architects of the war, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton know and when did she know it?

What Hillary Knew

The answer lies in a March 27, 2011, intelligence brief on Libya published by WikiLeaks. The brief, which was made public in 2015 as part of a large batch of Hillary emails released by the State Department, was sent by long time close adviser to the Clinton family and Hillary’s personal intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, and contains clear reference to rebels summarily executing “all foreign mercenaries” – which had already become the common euphemism for black Libyans then being targeted by the US-supported rebels.

Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary:

Under attack from allied Air and Naval forces, the Libyan Army troops have begun to desert to the rebel side in increasing numbers. The rebels are making an effort to greet these troops as fellow Libyans, in an effort to encourage additional defections.

Source Comment: Speaking in strict confidence, one rebel commander stated that his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting…

Hillary Emails show UK, French, Egyptian special forces were secretly in Libya providing arms to “protestors” https://t.co/SyRhaYeLGI

WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 25, 2016

And further interesting is that the line immediately following the acknowledgement of war crimes against “foreign mercenaries” indicates that a long time CIA supported Libyan exile was then taking command of the very militants committing those summary executions.

The email continues:

At the same time Colonel Khalifa Haftar has reportedly joined the rebel command structure, in an effort to help organization the rebel forces.

Khalifa Haftar has since 2011 become a mainstay in Libya’s post-Gaddafi chaos, heading up one of the three to four governments (at any given time) claiming authority in the war-torn country. Haftar has been widely acknowledged as the “CIA’s man” during his two decade long exile in the US, as a BBC profile explained: “His proximity to the CIA’s headquarters in Langley hinted at a close relationship with US intelligence services, who gave their backing to several attempts to assassinate Gaddafi.”

CIA’s Khalifa Haftar and Mass Executions

Meanwhile, Haftar is currently being eyed by international prosecutors for continuing to commit war crimes in Libya. One month ago The Guardian reported, “Ex-CIA asset Khalifa Haftar, due to meet Italian officials in Rome, ordered soldiers to kill prisoners, according to legal experts.” The Guardian cites video evidence which proves he continues to be “complicit in calling for extrajudicial killings.”

And yesterday Al Jazeera reported that a formal suit has been filed against Haftar at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for “carrying out mass executions and torture.” Another recent Guardian report which details torture and rape being carried out against prisoners held under Haftar’s militia alliance, includes the following eyewitness account of the torture of African migrant detainees:

There was a black man, a migrant. In the evening, they threw him into one of our cells: ‘You rape this guy, otherwise, you’re dead!’”

Then Secretary of State Clinton understood in early 2011 what was happening concerning the rebel genocidal targeting of black Libyans and African migrants, yet pushed to arm the rebels and overthrow Gaddafi anyway. She was given the intelligence brief which gave evidence this was happening on March 27, 2011. But even without such a classified intelligence report personally delivered to her, such war crimes were so well known that a full month prior on February 28, 2011, Al Jazeera could publish the following story entitled, African Migrants Targetted in Libya:

As nations evacuate their citizens from the violence gripping Libya, many African migrant workers are targeted because they are suspected of being mercenaries hired by Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader.

Dozens of workers from sub-Saharan Africa are feared killed, and hundreds are in hiding, as angry mobs of anti-government protesters hunt down “black African mercenaries,” according to witnesses.

“No Regrets”

But even years later, as such race-based war crimes have now been exhaustively documented, Hillary has consistently indicated that she has no regrets. Though her beloved Libyan rebels, legitimized and empowered through broad support from the West, were literally killing people based on the color of their skin, not a single one has ever been convicted in a court of law or punished for their crimes.

Moreover, Hillary has never so much as hinted at the problem, though her public stature would allow her a world-wide platform to speak against atrocities at any time, possibly preventing further crimes. Instead, she has simply chosen to conclude her role in the tragic story of Libya with her crazed and gleeful declaration of “we came, we saw, he died.”

My Note: Another perfect example of the Esau & Ishmael alliance for the endless African and Christian genocide. They will all burn in hell! Shame on those Africans who, in any manner, collaborate with these demonic evils!

Saudi Princes: “Orphaned Children from Countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria Sold as Sex Slaves”

Posted by addisethiopia on November 15, 2017

Kingdom Has Turned Jeddah into Sex Slave Market, Saudi Princess Reveals

Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef, the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal (who was recently arrested in scope of the anti-corruption purges in the country) said that those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering, are in fact highly corrupted themselves.

The have turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are being exploited for noisy sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse, Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef told the French newspaper Le Monde recently.

She said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on is that the members of the so-called Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.

The newspaper quoted the princess as saying that a Hallowen event was recently held in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of the consulates. The scene was like a typical nightclub anywhere outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy costumes, and a DJ.

Bint Aidan said the price of smuggled liquor in the country is very high. For instance, the price of the Smirnoff vodka is 1500 Riyals ($ 400), sometimes forcing party organizers to refill the original bottles with a local wine called Siddiqui.

She said that slavery in Saudi Arabia has different forms, but it is done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud.

But then she mentioned one of the most repulsive things: Buying and renting the children, especially the orphans, from countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria.

The children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.

Even the Asian maids who come to work often find themselves in a kind of slave-like position.

Young girls are divided into smaller groups and exploited for immoral acts.

Trafficking of white women and exploiting them for sexual practices is also relatively common.

Members of the royal family, government ministers and business tycoons were caught up in the sudden wave of arrests orchestrated by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, under the banner of an anti-corruption drive.

Fashion Mogul Karl Lagerfeld Slams Merkel for Inviting ‘Worst Enemies’ of Jews to Germany

Posted by addisethiopia on November 15, 2017

Noted German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld slammed German Chancellor Angela Merkel on French television saying she had invited the “worst enemies” of the Jewish people to Germany during the migrant crisis.

Mr. Lagerfeld, who serves as head creative director of the fashion house Chanel and of Italian designer Fendi, made the remarks on television which led to hundreds of viewers making complaints.

Evoking guilt of the Holocaust as the impetus for Merkel to invite unlimited numbers of asylum seekers into Germany during the migrant crisis, Lagerfeld said:

One cannot – even if there are decades between them – kill millions of Jews and then bring millions of their worst enemies in their place,Kronen Zeitung reports.

Lagerfeld then relayed a story he had been told by a friend: “I know someone in Germany who took a young Syrian and after four days he said, ‘The greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust’.”

Merkel had already millions and millions (of immigrants) who are well integrated and who work and all is well … she had no need to take another million to construct an image of herself as a stepmother after the Greek crisis,” he added.

Since the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, there have been a number of high profile anti-Semitic incidents in Germany, particularly in Berlin.

Earlier this year, a 14-year-old Jewish student was forced to leave his school after Muslim children bullied him both verbally and physically. Josef Schuster, president of Central Council of Jews in Germany called the incident, “a shattering event”.

In an interview with German magazine Bild, Schuster said: “In some districts in major cities, I’d advise people not to identify themselves as Jews.”

Experience has shown that openly wearing a kippa or a necklace with the Star of David is enough to attract verbal or physical threats,” he added.

In July, a report conducted by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) of 21 Berlin schools showed that not only was anti-Semitism on the rise but the phrase “you Jew!” had become a common insult on school playgrounds across the capital.

Selected Comments:

Good for him!

Whilst it’s true that European Jews will suffer from this latest wave of mostly Muslim immigrants, the rest of us are hardly any better off.

In most of the “random” attacks by mentally ill lone wolves called Mohammed in the UK and Europe, the vast majority of those maimed and killed weren’t Jews.

Lee Rigby wasn’t slaughtered in the street for being Jewish. The victims of 7/7 weren’t murdered on buses and on the tube for being Jewish. The concert goers in Manchester and Paris weren’t targeted because they were Jewish. The Christmas Markets, the promenade in Nice, the bridges and bars in London, the beheaded French priest weren’t targeted because they are Jewish.

We are all targets, because we aren’t Muslims.

You can be arrested for displaying the Nazi flag in Germany, but it’s OK for the German Government to import the new Nazis.

It is what I always said: European hatred for Jews drives them to import Jewish enemies, Muslims. The more they hate Jews, the more Muslims they import. And this shall destroy Europe. This is how God’s curse works.

How Can We Pay A Somali Criminal Almost £80,000?

Posted by addisethiopia on November 11, 2017

This is a man who has 30 criminal convictions and has been jailed many times for assaults, robberies and possession of a knife.

Yet this “prolific and violent offender” (the judge’s words) has been awarded (by the same judge) £78,500 in compensation.

This is because the judge ruled that the Home Secretary had unlawfully kept Mohammed in prison for 445 days while there were attempts to deport him.

So £78,500 is his payment for about 15 months spent in prison.

To put this in perspective: £78,500 is slightly more than an MP’s annual salary so it’s a very generous reward by any measure.

This sickening case raises many questions. Why were we not able to deport this Somalian who has clearly nothing to contribute to society?

The answer lies with the European Court of Justice which ruled that he must stay in Britain.

Apparently he was tortured and saw sights of “unimaginable barbarity” when he was a teenager in Mogadishu.

He then spent two years in a refugee camp before arriving in this country in 1996 at the age of 17.

But Britain cannot care for all the damaged people in the world and what about the individuals who have suffered as a result of Abdulrahman Mohammed’s criminal activity since he has been in Britain?

Do they not have human rights too?

Egyptian Lawyer Says It Is a ‘National Duty’ for Men to Rape Girls Who Wear Ripped Jeans

Posted by addisethiopia on November 1, 2017

An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage after telling a national television audience it is his “patriotic and national duty” to harass and rape young girls who wear revealing clothes including ripped jeans.

Nabih al-Wahsh said women wearing clothing should be punished. He warned:

Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing? I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”

The shock remarks came in a panel show broadcast on Al-Assema during a debate over a draft law on prostitution and sparked outrage across the country. Egypt’s National Council for Women now plans to file a complaint against the lawyer and the TV channel.

The council also urged media outlets not to host controversial figures who make remarks that incite violence against women.

The furore follows last month’s revelation that Cairo is the world’s most dangerous megacity for women, and has become more perilous since the 2011 uprisings.

France 24 reports that Cairo came in last of 19 megacities for its ability to protect women from harassment and rape on its streets.

A study conducted by the Egyptian Centre for Women’s Rights in 2008 found that 83 percent of women said they’d been sexually harassed, many of them daily, and 62 percent of men admitted to harassing women; advocates believe the percentage of women harassed is significantly higher.

Human Sacrifice in New York | You Celebrate Halloween which is Devoted to Death and Satan, You’re Gonna Reap Death and Satan

Posted by addisethiopia on November 1, 2017

It’s known in the past that human sacrifices were performed during pagan Druid/Celtic celebrations of Halloween.

Merle Severy, “The Celts,” National Geographic (May 1977), pages 625-626, describes “the eve of Samhain… the start of the Celtic new year:

According to the Dinshenchas, a medieval collection of “the lore of prominent places,” firstborn children were sacrificed before a great idol to ensure fertility of cattle and crops. Samhain eve was a night of dread and danger. At this juncture of the old year and the new, our world and the otherworld opened up to each other. The dead returned, ghosts and demons were abroad, and the future could be seen.. . . Behind such Halloween games as bobbing for apples lie Celtic divination arts to discern who would marry, thrive, or die in the coming year. Behind the masks and mischief, the jack-o’lanterns and food offerings, lurk the fear of malevolent spirits and the rites to propitiate them.”

Julius Caesar on Celtic Sacrifices

The whole nation of the Gauls is greatly devoted to ritual observances, and for that reason those who are smitten with the more grievous maladies and who are engaged in the perils of battle either sacrifice human victims or vow so to do, employing the druids as ministers for such sacrifices. They believe, in effect, that, unless for a man’s life a man’s life be paid, the majesty of the immortal gods may not be appeased; and in public, as in private life they observe an ordinance of sacrifices of the same kind. Others use figures of immense size whose limbs, woven out of twigs, they fill with living men and set on fire, and the men perish in a sheet of flame. They believe that the execution of those who have been caught in the act of theft or robbery or some crime is more pleasing to the immortal gods; but when the supply of such fails they resort to the execution even of the innocent.

The Bible tells us:

The LORD your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods. See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it. [Deuteronomy 12:29-32]

This is exactly what’s happening again in today’s “civilized” world. Westerners are now conditioned to celebrate death through festivities like “Halloween”, “Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead  in Mexico — they too are killing each other)”, through horror and scary movies, theaters and games. Folks are sacrificing their children again!

Halloween is America’s second favorite „religious holiday“, in the amount of money spent to Christmas. Think about that! You celebrate a holiday devoted to death and Satan, you’re gonna reap death and Satan!

Demonic rituals, costume parties, trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and haunted houses. The ghosts and ghouls are a reminder of the day’s dark origins in ancient Celtic history, when Oct. 31 was believed to be the night when ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

By the way, yesterday Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation turned 500 – and it’s celebrated parallel to Halloween. What does Halloween have to do with the Reformation? Plenty. Halloween played a pivotal role in religious history as Reformation Day. It wasn’t coincidence that Martin Luther chose that particular date to release “The 95 Theses” in Wittenberg, Germany, setting in motion the biggest religious upheaval in history.

The reason Martin Luther (above image: celebrating Halloween) chose that date was because the next day was All Saints’ Day,” Martinson said. The Catholic All Saints’ Day, celebrated on Nov. 1, is dedicated to honoring saints (those who have attained heaven)

Yesterday, just hours before 8 New Yorkers were brutally sacrificed, major terrorist attack’ was thwarted with Syrian’s arrest in Germany. By coincidence?

Lucifer – who is now a common god of Westerners and Muslims (sEdomites & Ishmaelites) – uses his children to murder innocent people as a sacrifice to him. Look how Muslims are celebrating death – yesterday in New York – and earlier all over the world — they always celebrate victory in death. In fact, there is a conviction upheld of Muslims, We love death more than you love life!

The Bible tells us:

“Coming To America 2” | an Ethiopian Prince Found His American Woman | Now She’s Married Into The Royal Family Of Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia on October 16, 2017

American woman, 33, marries Ethiopian prince, 35, in a lavish wedding 12 years after they met in a Washington, DC nightclub

Ariana Austin, 33, married 35-year-old Joel Makonnen, a great-grandson of the last emperor of Ethiopia, on September 9 in Maryland

  • The couple married 12 years after they met on the dance floor of Washington, DC nightclub Pearl
  • Makonnen picked Austin up by saying she looked like a model in a Bombay Sapphire advertisement
  • Makonnen, now a lawyer for Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, is related to Emperor Haile Selassie I though his second son, Prince Makonnen
  • He was born in Rome, where his family lived in exile after a 1974 military coup
  • The Ethiopian royal family claims descent to the Biblical King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba

An American woman became an African princess last month when she married into the royal family of Ethiopia – after meeting her future husband at a modern day ‘ball’.

Ariana Austin, 33, married 35-year-old Joel Makonnen, a great-grandson of the last emperor of Ethiopia, on September 9 in Maryland.

The couple married 12 years after they first met on the dance floor of Washington, DC nightclub Pearl.

Makonnen told the New York Times that he hit on his future bride and her friend using a cheesy pick-up line.


‘I said, “You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire,” or whatever the gin was,’ Mr. Makonnen recalled.

Makonnen says he immediately knew he wanted to date Austin.

Not even five minutes later I said, “You’re going to be my girlfriend,”‘ he said.

While Makonnen didn’t immediately tell Austin about his family, the truth about his heritage came out as they started to seriously date and it’s something that fascinates Austin.

She appears excited to be apart of a family that traces their roots back to the Biblical King Solomon and Queen of Sheba.

‘It’s unbeatable heritage and history,’ Austin said. ‘It combines sheer black power and ancient Christian tradition.’

The two married last month in an elaborate Ethiopian Orthodox Christian wedding involving 13 priests in Temple Hills, Maryland.

The bride and groom both wore crowns and capes in the ceremony, making them look like the true royals they are. While Austin may not have royal blood in her background, she does come from an African American/Guyanese family with rich histories abroad. Her maternal grandfather was lord mayor of Georgetown, the capital of Guyana.

Hours before the ceremony, they hosted a formal reception at Foxchase Manor in Manassas, Virginia where their 307 guests dined on platters of Ethiopian food and pre-boxed slices of Guyanese black cake.

Makonnen, or Prince Yoel as he is officially known, is related to the last emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie I, through his second son, Prince Makonnen.

Haile Salassie ruled Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974, when he was overthrown by a Marxist Derg military coup.

Makonnen’s father, Prince David, was studying abroad at the time, and was thus able to escape imprisonment.

Makonnen was born in Rome, where his parents were living in exile, and was raised in Switzerland.

When he met Austin, he was perusing an undergraduate degree at American University.

The couple quickly stood the test of a long distance relationship when, after graduating from American in 2006, Makonnen took a six-month internship in France.

Austin went to Paris the next year, where Makonnen returned in 2008 before going back to Ethiopia to start a organization with his uncle to help Ethiopian youth.

In 2012, Austin returned to the U.S. to get a master’s degree in arts education at Harvard and the two decided to take a break that year.

But they were back together again by Valentine’s Day 2014, when Makonnen popped the question with an aptly shaped princess-cut diamond ring.

Their engagement is a funny story. Makonnen went over to his girlfriend’s house to propose, but he knocked on the door so forcefully that Austin thought someone was trying to break in and called her parents for help.

‘He was aggressively knocking so I didn’t answer. He came back, and then I opened the door,’ she said.

The two moved in together after the wedding, and are living in the Washington, DC area.

Makonnen works in the legal department at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical.

His new wife works in philanthropy at the Executives Alliance for Boys and Men of Color.
