Italy Earthquakes A Warning Sign of Divine Judgment For Allowing Muslim Prayers at The Colosseum?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 11, 2016

Powerful earthquakes hit Italy in the past weeks shaking Rome’s ancient Ruins ‘including Colosseum and Pantheon.

There were two historical occurrences that took place without getting enough Mainstream Media attention. And in relation to these events, the violent earthquakes that struck Italy two weeks ago could be seen as a divine punishment:

1. For Italy’s abstention on a controversial UNESCO resolution regarding the status of Jerusalem’s holy sites.

UNESCO adopted a resolution on Oct. 13 that reaffirmed Jerusalem’s status as a World Heritage site important to Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but did not include the Hebrew or Jewish names for the sites known in Judaism as The Temple Mount.

The Temple Mount, as its called in Judaism, is revered as the religion’s holiest site and the site of the first temple.

2. For allowing Muslim prayers in front of the Colosseum

As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering and beheading Christians, Jews and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Europe is promoting the Islamic death cult in the name of religious pluralism.

A blasphemous religious revolt in the heart of Christendom:

Two weeks ago, thousands of Muslim headbangers gathered outside Rome’s Colosseum to protest the closure of small, illegal mosques and other places of worship in the Italian capital. The group gathered outside the iconic ancient Roman building to curse non-Muslims by praising their Allah as they promoted their right of freedom to worship. (Something Christians don’t get in Muslim countries).

Many Roman citizens were visibly disturbed by the protest, noting that in its propaganda videos, the Islamic State has repeatedly employed images of the Colosseum when threatening to conquer Rome and the “Crusaders.”

Two months ago, Italian police set up a high-security perimeter around the Colosseum, after the Islamic State issued a new threat to “conquer” Rome in its latest video.

Islamic protest in the heart of Christendom: Thousands of Muslims demonstrate outside the iconic Colosseum in Rome

Gian Marco, leader of the anti immigration Northern League, said: Muslims today who decided to pray in front of the Colosseum had to be stopped. It was a scene that was unacceptable’.

The Colosseum has great significance in the largely Catholic country. It is generally regarded by Christians as a site of the martyrdom of believers during the Roman Empire’s persecution of the religion.

The Via Crucis devotion (Stations of the Cross or Way of the Cross) has been practiced by Roman Catholics for many centuries. It commemorates the passion and death of Jesus Christ through the reading of prayers along a path of 14 stations.

A Cross now stands outside the Colosseum inscribed with the words: 

The amphitheater, one consecrated to triumphs, entertainments, and the impious worship of pagan gods, is now dedicated to the sufferings of the martyrs purified from impious superstitions’.

Muslims as a desecration to the blood of the martyrs have massive prayer demonstration in front of Rome’s historical Colosseum

It is fitting that Muslims should pray in front of the Colosseum. After all, it was a place where many Christians were martyred out of hatred for Christ, and how more fitting that Muslims, whose religion hates Christ, should make their disrespectful petitions as close as possible to the place where Christians were martyred:

They chose to pray in front of the Colosseum because of its significance to the martyrdom of Christians, and not that they are against it, but that they support it. Be reassured, if these people had the opportunity to do what the pagan Romans did to the Christians, they would as soon as it was advantageous to them.

At a time when radical Islam is rapidly rising, what is possessing Christian Colosseum, Cathedrals and Chapels, even at The Vatican, to allow Muslims – however peaceful in appearance – to hold prayer meetings in their sanctuaries? Why in the world would Christian leaders think it’s OK to open their doors to false-god worship?

This sort of acts, including the recent Islamic inspired terror acts, disturbances, rapes and other assaults are God’s punishment on the people of Europe as they have abandoned their Christian faith, their churches. The churches in Europe are so deserted that they’re closed part of the day, and when they’re open its only to allow tourists to view the art inside. No one prays in those buildings anymore. So now they are being invaded by Muslim barbarians who pray so much that they will actually take to the streets to protest when their Satanic temples are closed.

As long as the Colosseum stands, Rome will stand.When the Colosseum collapses, Rome will collapse. When Rome collapses, the world will collapse.

Prophecy by the Venerable Bede, 700 AD ca.

Muslim Crowds Shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ And Declare To Italians- ‘Build Us Mosques Or We Will Take Over The Vatican!’

The Muslim invasion of Europe is destroying her cities and turning them into Muslim ghettos. Rome is having a huge problem with this, as there are so many Muslims they are literally taking over the streets of the city and turning them into a mosque.

The Italian government has been fighting back, closing mosques and restricting their activity, but they are undeterred. In fact, they are so emboldened that they have declared that the Italian government give them what they wish or else they will take over the Vatican and pray in it:

Next Friday, November 11, we will pray in Prati,” announces Bachcu area, which explains how the young Italian Muslim second generation had also planned a protest flash mob: “They wanted to go and pray Allahu Akbar throughout the city, to the Vatican, in the squares or in front of the churches, to provoke. In the end we managed to stop them, but if they start these initiatives, what do we do? “.

We live here, we work here, we can not go to pray mica in Parioli – says Anwar, president of a prayer hall of the neighborhood -. In Italy there is a law for the mosques, then we find the premises and settle them in our own way. ”

Here they pray up to 300 people, where we go if we close?”, We said Hussein who works in a hardware store in Torpignattara, a few meters from the Islamic center where every day is to pray. This district of the eastern suburbs, where half of the inhabitants are Muslims, is the heart of the Islamic protest against the closure of places of worship.(source)

Again, the face of true Islam shows itself. When it thinks it can take over it acts with incredible brutality and disrespect, but when it thinks it is in a losing position it immediately seeks “peace” and “tolerance.” The Catholic Church’s presence in the Vatican has always been a target for Islam, but now they have made it a priority with the Muslim invasion of  Europe.

Let this be a reminder for many Americans. It has been an exciting few days with the political and bloodless (for now) revolution through the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency and a sweeping loss of the Democrat Party at the state and federal levels. A long overdue celebration has been in order. But now it is time to return to the gravity of what we face as a nation, for Donald Trump’s election did not stop time or the trials coming in the near future, but has given us a brief respite to prepare for what inevitably lies ahead.

Never forget the larger picture. The USA and Europe are still under attack from Islamic terrorists. It will take many years of work- much of it with pain- to rebuild what has been broken. Germany is still facilitating the religious, cultural, and ethnic destruction of Western Europe in the name of selling her soul to the Muslims for a chance at the dream of empire and a final confrontation with the Russians. The Chinese threat looms in the east. The Middle East is still burning as Muslim terrorists prowl the streets slaughtering Christians with joy amidst shouts of “Allahu Akbar.”

As we see here in Europe, the Muslims are still drooling like a starved animal over the prospects of destroying Christendom, and they have set their sights on the last major temporal presence of Christendom in the West and throughout the world- the Catholic Church’s presence in Rome. In their minds, if the Vatican is destroyed, the Church will also be destroyed. This beyond a mere war- this is a prophetic sign of our times that we are living through.

This is a great battle between good and evil. NO politician can save us, but only God can because ultimately He is in control. The world stands on the threshhold of a great quaking, and now is the time to work even more diligently in preparation for what is to come.

Don’t accept the “olive branch” the Muslims will try to extend here in the USA- it is really poison ivy. Their real intentions have always been the same, convert or die.

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 30, 2012

Ethiopian Jazz by Wudasse Band — EteMete (Darling)

Gregory Porter – On My Way To Harlem

According to UNESCO, the international community proclaimed 30 April as “International Jazz Day”. The Day is intended to raise awareness in the international community of the virtues of jazz as an educational tool, and a force for peace, unity, dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people. Many governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions, and private citizens currently engaged in the promotion of jazz music will embrace the opportunity to foster greater appreciation not only for the music but also for the contribution it can make to building more inclusive societies.

Why International Jazz Day?

  • Jazz breaks down barriers and creates opportunities for mutual understanding and tolerance;
  • Jazz is a vector of freedom of expression;
  • Jazz is a symbol of unity and peace;
  • Jazz reduces tensions between individuals, groups, and communities;
  • Jazz fosters gender equality;
  • Jazz reinforces the role youth play for social change;
  • Jazz encourages artistic innovation, improvisation, new forms of expression, and inclusion of traditional music forms into new ones;
  • Jazz stimulates intercultural dialogue and empowers young people from marginalized societies.

Konso Cultural Landscape of Ethiopia inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 28, 2011

Konso Cultural Landscape (Ethiopia), is a 55km2 arid property of stone walled terraces and fortified settlements in the Konso highlands of Ethiopia. It constitutes a spectacular example of a living cultural tradition stretching back 21 generations (more than 400 years) adapted to its dry hostile environment. The landscape demonstrates the shared values, social cohesion and engineering knowledge of its communities. The site also features anthropomorphic wooden statues – grouped to represent respected members of their communities and particularly heroic events – which are an exceptional living testimony to funerary traditions that are on the verge of disappearing. Stone steles in the towns express a complex system of marking the passing of generations of leaders.

There are now 9 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ethiopia

The following Konso Myth talks about Waga, the creator:

The first man was born with all limbs and organs that we have, but even though he could see, he was in other ways completely paralyzed, unable even to breathe. Waga’s wife asked him if he could give the man some medicine to make him speak. The God replied that he had none, but he would bring the man some breath, which he did. Now the man began to move, speak, and till the soil. When he died Wage took his breath back again.

UNESCO Exhibition On Reconstruction of Aksum Obelisk

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 21, 2009


unescoaxum

UNESCO, Monday, April 20, 2009

____________________________________________________________________________________________

An exhibition – photographs and a video installation – at UNESCO will celebrate the reinstallation of the Aksum obelisk. The show will give visitors a chance to learn about the history of the Ethiopian site and to view the key stages of reinstalling the monument, 24 metres high and weighing 150 tons.

Open to the public from 4 to 15 May (9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.), the exhibition will be inaugurated on 23 April by Koïchiro Matsuura, the Director-General of UNESCO, in the presence of the Ethiopian and Italian ambassadors to UNESCO, Adelech Haile Mikael and Giuseppe Moscato.

The artists in the show, who are from Ethiopia, Belgium, France and Italy, were invited by UNESCO to visit Aksum and to express their vision of the restoration of the obelisk, a symbol of Ethiopian culture.

Their works highlight the uniqueness and magnitude of the project. The monument’s history has been eventful: erected in the 4th century then vandalized in the 7th, the obelisk was hauled off to Rome at Mussolini’s orders and set up near the Circus Maximus, finally returning to Aksum in 2005.

The artists – Tito Dupret, Theo Eshetu, Hiwot Gebre Geziabeher, Michael Tsegaye and Paola Viesi – give their personal interpretations of these events. The gigantic, 15-screen video installation by Theo Eshetu benefits from the dual perspective of the artist, born in Ethiopia and living in Rome. Hiwot Gebre Geziabeher, a schoolgirl from Aksum who learned photography from Michael Tsegaye, takes the local inhabitants’ point of view. Included in the show are films and photos depicting the extraordinary reinstallation work and Aksum’s lifestyle and culture. For an even better sense of the project’s scope, a 360°* projection offers visitors a simulated tour of the Aksum archaeological site and works.

With this exhibition, UNESCO is celebrating the successful reinstallation and showing how a cultural project can help bring about reconciliation between two countries with conflict in their past.

This project and this exhibition were made possible thanks to the generous contribution of the Italian Government.

From 4 to 15 May, individuals and school groups may reserve guided visits organized by UNESCO, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
