Breaking News: A miracle in Brussels

jesus.miracles.Paralyzed Man.O1.jpg

In the village of Sint-Gillis which is part of Brussels (Belgium), a miracle happened.

A man crippled since more than almost 1 year, is healed in a miraculous way.

The case is similar to the miraculous way in which Jesus healed a cripple man in the city of Capernaum some 2000 years ago.

The healed man of Sint-Gillis now uses the Brussels public transport to explore Brussels. Yesterday he was seen in a Brussels forest.

Scientists wonder where Jesus is.

A Paralyzed Man in Capernaum

In the city of Capernaum there lived a paralyzed man who could not walk.

The paralyzed man's friends wanted to take him to see Jesus.

The men took up the paralyzed man on his mat to take him to the house were Jesus was preaching.

They made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on.

When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you."

jesus.miracles.Paralyzed Man.7.jpg

And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, "This Man blasphemes!" But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins".

jesus.miracles.Paralyzed Man.8.jpg

Then he said to the paralytic, "Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." And he arose and departed to his house. Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men."

Little bourgeoisie: lack of brains

the-bourgeois-brain.jpg

Petit bourgeoisie (literally “little bourgeoisie”):

This class includes people who may own some form of capital on a small or individual level—not enough to generate more capital (and thus be a capitalist), but enough to keep themselves going. This can be physical capital, such as a store, or intellectual capital, such as a degree in engineering. These forms of personal capital require an investment and enhance their earning ability. The upper strata of this class aspire to belong to the bourgeoisie, and they identify ideologically with that class.

The petit bourgeoisie also includes “non-productive” working people (this is not a judgment about the utility of the service or work they perform—it means that their labor power assists in the circulation of capital rather than creating surplus value). Many non-productive working people have no personal capital and are heavily dominated in the exchange of their services for wages. This tends to bring them closer, ideologically, to the working class.

The petit bourgeoisie is not an autonomous class. Because the principal conflict in capitalism is between the bourgeoisie and working class, the various strata of the petit bourgeoisie exist in the camp of either of these two fundamental classes. Their interests, along with their loyalties, will tend to waver between the two.

This wide-ranging class includes:

Small entrepreneurs and business owners
Skilled professionals such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, programmers, baseball players
Intellectuals such as artists, writers and academics
Teachers, journalists, firefighters, police, social workers, bus drivers
Family farmers
Small-time drug dealers
White collar (clerical) workers such as office assistants, telemarketers, cube farm data jockeys
Service workers including sales clerks, sex workers, health care, and hotel workers

Bradley Manning faces 136-year jail

Bradley Manning verdict: cleared of 'aiding the enemy' but guilty of other charges

31 July 2013

Bradley Manning, the source of the massive WikiLeaks trove of secret disclosures, faces a possible maximum sentence of 136 years in military jail after he was convicted on Tuesday of most charges on which he stood trial.

Colonel Denise Lind, the military judge presiding over the court martial of the US soldier, delivered her verdict in curt and pointed language. "Guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty," she repeated over and over, as the reality of a prolonged prison sentence for Manning – on top of the three years he has already spent in detention – dawned.

The one ray of light in an otherwise bleak outcome for Manning was that he was found not guilty of the single most serious charge against him – that he knowingly "aided the enemy", in practice al-Qaida, by disclosing information to the WikiLeaks website that in turn made it accessible to all users including enemy groups.

Lind's decision to avoid setting a precedent by applying the swingeing "aiding the enemy" charge to an official leaker will invoke a sigh of relief from news organisations and civil liberties groups who had feared a guilty verdict would send a chill across public interest journalism.

The judge also found Manning not guilty of having leaked an encrypted copy of a video of a US air strike in the Farah province of Aghanistan in which many civilians died. Manning's defence team had argued vociferously that he was not the source of this video, though the soldier did admit to the later disclosure of an unencrypted version of the video and related documents.

Lind also accepted Manning's version of several of the key dates in the WikiLeaks disclosures, and took some of the edge from other less serious charges. But the overriding toughness of the verdict remains: the soldier was found guilty in their entirety of 17 out of the 22 counts against him, and of an amended version of four others.

The guilty verdicts included seven out of the eight counts brought under the Espionage Act. On these counts, Manning was accused of leaking the Afghan and Iraq war logs, embassy cables and Guantánamo files "with reason to believe such information could be used to the injury of the US or the advantage of any foreign nation". The 1917 act has previously been reserved largely for those who engage in spying as opposed to leaking; the seven convictions under the act are likely to be seen as a major stepping up of the US government's harsh crackdown on whistleblowing.

Manning was also found guilty of "wrongfully and wantonly" causing to be published on the internet intelligence belonging to the US, "having knowledge that intelligence published on the internet is accesible to the enemy". That guilty ruling could still have widest ramifications for news organisations working on investigations relating to US national security.

The verdict was condemned by human rights campaigners. Amnesty International's senior director of international law and policy, Widney Brown, said: "The government's priorities are upside down. The US government has refused to investigate credible allegations of torture and other crimes under international law despite overwhelming evidence.

"Yet they decided to prosecute Manning who it seems was trying to do the right thing – reveal credible evidence of unlawful behaviour by the government. You investigate and prosecute those who destroy the credibility of the government by engaging in acts such as torture which are prohibited under the US Constitution and in international law."

Ben Wizner, of the American Civil LIberties Union, said: "While we're relieved that Mr Manning was acquitted of the most dangerous charge, the ACLU has long held the view that leaks to the press in the public interest should not be prosecuted under the Espionage Act.

"Since he already pleaded guilty to charges of leaking information – which carry significant punishment – it seems clear that the government was seeking to intimidate anyone who might consider revealing valuable information in the future."

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, said in a statement from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he is sheltering from extradition to Sweden on suspicion of sex crimes, that the verdict set a "dangerous precedent" and was an "example of national security extremism".

Etienne Davignon and the assassination of Patrice Lumumba

Image

The French-language magazine Marianne recently published the names of 10 men implicated in the 1961 assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the first Congolese prime minister after its independence.  The list — compiled by Lumumba’s family for a legal investigation opened in Brussels two years ago — include Etienne Davignon, a former member of the European Commission and chairman of that “gentlemen’s club” for global capitalism, the Bilderberg Group.  Davignon worked for the Belgian foreign ministry at the time of Lumumba’s murder and reportedly drew up a telegram recommending the prime minister’s “removal”.

Fallen Frozen German Soldiers at Stalingrad.jpg

Stalingrad


Russia, 19.01.1943

To my loved ones at home,


Best wishes to you all...I don't know if my other letters will reach you so I'm trying to write as often as possible, just in case something gets through. I suppose you all the know what's happened here. The Stalingrad pocket is indescribable. I am alive, uninjured and thank God for every day! Only He knows how this will end, and He is our only hope. Can help reach us from the outside? We don't know, but we know we can't save ourselves. I reckon the decision will come in about two weeks' time, either way.

I know you're all praying for us.
The thought of seeing home again is everpresent and keeps us going. Every other need, suffering, effort is secondary - it's all or nothing now. I've put myself in His hands and am ready to say my last prayer at all times. I hope He gives me the strength to say His name in my final moment. Evenso, in the last weeks He has saved me so often that I'm sure I'll make it home again.

Should a time come when you don't hear from me anymore, pray and trust in God. I pray to Him every day for my poor old parents in case I don't return. And if it should come to pass that God's will is that I don't make it out of here, that Stalingrad is lost, then, my dear family, my last message to you from the Russian earth is one of deepest gratitude, gratitude that will live forever. I cannot stand it much longer, which you probably realise by now, but it has to be said.


Dearest mother and father, I am filled with regret and wish to atone for the times I have hurt you. I beg your forgiveness with childish humility...I can't express my gratitude in words. I just can't stand it all anymore. For my own sake, I am ready [to die]. For the sake of my parents and siblings I cry out to God, "Help us, we're perishing!" My Saviour is with me and won't leave me - to whom could He be closer than to one of His own priests?...and so I hope that I do not flinch when the time comes and that my last moment on this earth is not my weakest.


Live well, my dear family back home. I shall return!

Your Gustav.

World War III: U.S. - NATO - The Caucasus – Syria

As a reminder:

November 8, 2012

'The Caucasus Emirate Goes Global'

For a decade almost all observers ignored, downplayed, and obfuscated an ugly truth about 'separatists' in Chechnya and the North Caucasus: they have long been a jihadist organization allied with Al Qa`ida (AQ), its affiliates, and the larger global jihadi revolutionary alliance AQ inspired. The ‘jihadization’ of the Chechen and Caucasus mujahedin began in the mid-1990s and culminated in October 2007 with the formation of the 'Caucasus Emirate' (CE) in place of the radically nationalist 'Chechen Republic of Ichkeriya' and the CE's declaration of jihad against not just Russia but the U.S., Britain, Israel and "any country fighting Muslims anywhere around the world," as CE amir Dokku Umarov warned.

The CE follows and propagandizes the same radical Salafi jihadist theo-ideology professed by AQ and its affiliates without becoming one of them. CE websites began to contain the very same propaganda and training materials found on AQ and its affiliates’ websites. This year Umarov included the U.S. among the “unclean ones” who need to be swept from the earth.

'Russia Must React to Hostile U.S., NATO Actions in the Caucasus'

Republic News Agency (South Ossetia)

The attempts of the West to create the anti-Russian sentiments in the Caucasus require more active and effective reaction of Russia

Western countries, which maintain the leading positions in the aggressive military-political bloc of NATO, actively continue to intervene in the internal affairs of Russia.

Their goal, in particular, is the expulsion of Russia from South Ossetia, the destruction of the South Ossetian State (and also, as in 1991-2008, the holocaust of the people of South Ossetia) as well as destabilization of the situation in the North Caucasus in order to separate it from Russia and make it their protectorate and a springboard for further military actions against the rest of the Russian state.

In this case, the myth of the imposition of some sort of “Russian occupation” of South Ossetia and Abkhazia ranks first. Amazingly, not only Russian propaganda, but in some cases even Russian officials in international organizations completely ignore the danger that lurks in this. This is evidenced by the fact that one of them “abstained” from voting for a resolution containing calumnious inventions about “occupation” [of South Ossetia asnd Abkhazia].

Meanwhile, the political activities of the Western officials that are the component parts of advocacy for representing Russia as the aggressor are increasing, which pose a threat to peace and stability in Georgia and in the Caucasus region as a whole.

Thus, the OSCE Secretary General has proposed to discuss “the risk of recurrence of Russia’s military aggression against Georgia” within the framework of the “Forum on Cooperation and Security.”

“If the Georgian side is concerned about it, we will consider this issue at the conference, which will be held soon in France,” said Lamberto Zannier in Tbilisi. For some reason, he has mentioned some concerns of Georgia, though only Georgia is the aggressor and the source of destabilization in the Caucasus.

And the well-grounded apprehension of South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Russia, whose soldiers and civilians were killed by the NATO arms of the Georgian army, is hypocritically ignored by the Western politicians. It’s safe to say that the representatives of South Ossetia will not be invited to this event and the neocolonialists will be speaking whatever they want behind our back.

A powerful U.S. senator, John McCain, is “concerned” about the Russian threat to Georgia. He spoke about it in his interview to Georgian journalists within the framework of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Monaco: “I am very concerned about the overt threat of Russia to Georgia and military exercises at the border with Georgia scheduled for autumn; we in Congress are doing everything to supply Georgia with defensive weapons.”

This statement sounds in unison with the first, where he has said that these politicians are not voicing their own opinion; directives on what to say and what phrases to use are sent them centrally.

Moreover, with his statement McCain has recognized unwittingly that till now the West was sending to Georgia not defensive but offensive weapons, so it considered it a country which had to attack and attack, but not to defend itself. The reaction of Russia in 2008 was rejected by the West, so Georgia had not been supplied with defensive arms – just with offensive ones.

All these military-raising activities are aimed at supporting the American stooge, Mikhail Saakashvili, on whom the West is placing high expectations in its fight against Russia. With some hidden design, expressing the true reason of his “concern”, the U.S. Senator emphasized that he was “confident in the Georgian people, and they will make the right choice at the fall elections to the parliament of Georgia.”

These actions require the creation of favorable conditions for the public and non-governmental organizations in Russia and South Ossetia for more active participation in international forums and more effective protection of the interests of Russia and South Ossetia at the international level and in the international media space.

'17 Mujahideen of Caucasus Emirate martyred in Jihad in Syria'

According to media outlets, 280 foreign Mujahideen, including 17 from the Caucasus Emirate and Russia martyred in 11 months of Syrian Jihad. This is said in in a joint report by the Washington-based Zionist "Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and consulting center Flashpoint Global Partners published in US on Tuesday.

Teaching then is the initial and decisive factor in the future of mankind, and the first duty of everyone who has the ability and opportunity, is to teach, or to subserve the teaching of, the true history of mankind…Men and women can help the spread of the saving doctrine in a thousand various ways; for it is not only in homes and schools that minds are shaped. They can print and publish books, endow schools and teaching, organize the distribution of literature, insist upon the proper instruction of children in world wide charity and fellowship, fight against every sort of suppression or restrictive control of right education, bring pressure through political and social channels upon every teaching organization to teach history aright, sustain missions and a new sort of missionary, the missionaries to all mankind of knowledge and the idea of one world civilization and one world community; they can promote and help the progress of historical and ethnological and political science, they can set their faces against every campaign of hate, racial suspicion, and patriotic falsehood, they can refuse, they are bound to refuse, obedience to any public authority which oppresses and embitters class against class, race against race, and people against people. A belligerent government as such, they can refuse to obey; and they can refuse to help or suffer any military preparations that are not directed wholly and plainly to preserving the peace of the world.
