 ‘Israel’ Submits to Deal with Palestinian Prisoners on Hunger Strike

Zionist authorities finally submitted to a deal with the Palestinian prisoners who have been on hunger strike in ‘Israeli’ occupation prisons over the past 40 days.

 

‘Israel' Submits to Deal with Palestinian Prisoners on Hunger Strike


Issa Qaraqe, the head of the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs, confirmed the deal on Saturday.

Other informed sources also said that the hunger strikers had halted their protest action following the agreement.

Since April 17, more than 1,600 Palestinian prisoners had been refusing food in a protest action, dubbed the Freedom and Dignity Strike. The strike was led by Marwan Barghouti, a jailed leader of the Palestinian Fatah movement.

The hunger strikers were demanding appropriate medical care and treatment in Zionist occupation prisons, as well as an end to solitary confinement and the so-called administrative detention, which is a form of imprisonment without trial or charge.

There had lately been rising concerns about the health conditions of the Palestinian inmates; some of them had been taken to hospital with deteriorating health.

Not all of the details of the Saturday deal were immediately clear. Zionist media said that, under the agreement, Palestinian prisoners would be allowed two monthly family visits instead of one.

On Friday, Palestinian demonstrators turned out on the streets in the occupied West Bank and blockaded Gaza Strip to express their solidarity with the hunger strikers.

Some 6,500 Palestinians are currently being held in the enemy’s jails, 536 of them arbitrarily, according to figures provided by the Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer in January.

Palestinian inmates complain that they have been subjected to assault and torture at ‘Israeli’ prisons.

أولى نتائج زيارة ترامب: خلاف تميم بن حمد ومحمد بن سلمان

 

روزانا رمّال

بالنظر للزيارات الخارجية الرسمية التي غالباً ما يتطلع اليها كل رؤساء الدول حديثي العهد أو «الولاية»، فإن التعاطي مع أهدافها يبقى مغايراً عما هو عليه بحالة رؤساء مضى على تجربتهم وقت يسير في السلطة تكفل بصقل مراحل قيادة الدولة، حيث تبدو الزيارات هذه على شكل تبادل للعلاقات المشتركة مع مساعٍ لتعزيزها وتعميقها بقواعد متينة، فكيف بالحال مع الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب الحديث العهد، القادم من خلفية عملاقة من المال والأعمال وعالم الشهرة الأقرب للاستعراض والإبهار منه الى حياة الاتزان والعمق، من دون ان يحظى بما يؤهله إثبات قدرته على إدارة الولايات المتحدة سياسياً بالنسبة للخصوم؟

وعلى أن هدف كل رئيس دولة حصد «الإنجاز» من زياراته الخارجية لتجييرها محلياً، فإن أحوج ما يكون اليها في هذه الأثناء هو الرئيس ترامب بالذات الذي يواجه مخاطر العزل في البيت الابيض على ما اعلنت شبكة «سي أن أن» الأميركية، ولا يزال يقع تحت رحمة التهديدات والملفات التي فتحت نيرانها على تاريخ علاقته بروسيا في مرحلة الانتخابات ودعمه كمرشح كما بات معروفاً، وجرت سلسلة الإقالات من إداراته على هذا الأساس.

نظر العرب لمسألة زيارة ترامب للمملكة العربية السعودية واختياره إياها على أنه تكريم واعتراف بدورها الكبير في المنطقة. وهي بدورها تعاطت معه على هذا الأساس بين ترحيب وحشد رئاسي كبير لاستقباله، لكن الأهم كان ما تم تسريبه عبر صحف أميركية كـ»الواشنطن بوست» قبل الزيارة وتناول شروع واشنطن بالتنسيق مع السعودية لتشكيل حلف عربي عسكري على غرار حلف «الناتو»، ضمن جدول اعمال زيارة ترامب والذي عزز من هذه الفرضية الحشود المجتمعة على الحدود السورية الأردنية «بريطانية وأردنية وسعودية» تراوح حراكها بين التدريب والمناورات وبين حديث عن انتظار ساعة صفر للانطلاق أميركياً.

عملياً، لم يتمّ الإعلان عن أي حلف عسكري في بيان قمة الرياض كبند رسمي، كما كان مفترضاً ولم يتغير شيء من المواقف الأميركية باتجاه تزخيم او تبريد العلاقة بين كل من السعودية وإيران. فبقي النموذج الأميركي المعهود من المواجهة مع إيران سيد الموقف مع فارق تصنيفها داعمة للإرهاب وتبرئة السعودية منه .

كإنجاز محلي أميركياً يسعى اليه ترامب لتحقيق صفقة تاريخية بين الرياض وواشنطن. وهو لم يعد فارغ اليدين بل عاد وجيبه مليئة بما يمكنه ان يقدمه لشعبه كرئيس «ثقة» ومؤتمن على مصير الأميركيين قادر على رسم مخططات اقتصادية وفتح أسواق وفرص عمل كبرى بين البلدين. لكن الإنجاز الأبرز له كما بدت الصورة خلاف خليجي خليجي واضح المعالم وقع بين السعودية وقطر.

الحديث عن خلاف مردّه خرق لموقع رسمي قطري لا يمكن اعتباره ذا قيمة سياسية في أوقات دقيقة من عمر المنطقة. واذا كان هذا الخرق وارداً، فإن مسألة تداركه او لملمته أفيد لصورة مجلس التعاون الخليجي وأوفى للحرص على هذه الصورة ما يستدعي استفساراً سعودياً مباشراً حول ما جرى مع امير قطر الذي نفى مراراً ما قيل حول نقضه ما صدر عن القمة ولا يستدعي فتح حرب إعلامية مباشرة ضمن البيت الواحد.

فتحت قناتا الجزيرة – المملوكة من الأمير تميم – والعربية – المملوكة من الأمير محمد بن سلمان – منابرهما للتصويب على قيادتي الدولتين مع حرب صحف سعودية مؤازرة بهجوم غير مسبوق على أمير قطر واعتبارها مصدر زعزعة أمن الخليج.

القرار السعودي الواضح المعالم يقع ضمن دائرة القلق من الدور القطري. فالدوحة تشكل للرياض مساحة غير آمنة ضمن دول مجلس التعاون الخليجي. فهي في وقت تحتضن حركة حماس الفلسطينية، تفتح قنوات اتصال مع حزب الله في ما يخصّ تبادل الأسرى لدى مجموعات مسلّحة تدعمها من جهة، ولدى الجهة اللبنانية من جهة أخرى ومع النظام السوري ايضاً، حيث أسست لسلسلة صفقات تبادل ومصالحات ناجحة تُضاف اليها العلاقة الجيدة والمنتجة بإيران.

الدور المقلق لقطر استدعى موقفاً سعودياً واضحاً بإعلان الخلاف وحرب المواقف على الإمارة التي يرأسها الامير الشاب تميم بن حمد آل خليفة، وعلى ما يبدو فإن الامير السعودي الشاب أيضاً محمد بن سلمان على خلاف واضح مع أمير قطر، وعلى استعداد كامل لقيادة الخلاف مع قطر بكل أشكاله والرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب الذي حصد الجوائز المالية من السعوديين أعطاهم الضوء الأخضر لقيادة مخطط محمد بن سلمان المباشر ضد قطر، ومن خلفه تركيا التي تشتبك مع واشنطن في مسألة الأكراد وترتبط ارتباطاً وثيقاً بالنظام القطري في سورية. قطر وتركيا تعتبران الأكثر قرباً لقبول مشروع مفاوضات سياسية ناجحة بقيادة روسيا، كان آخرها مؤتمر استانة الذي يحظى بموافقة ودعم تركيين.

الخلاف السعودي – القطري الحالي ليس سوى ترجمة للنزاعات نفسها على الأرض، ضمن جبهات قتال المجموعات المسلحة «داعش والنصرة والكتائب المختلفة» وتمظهر خلاف الدول الداعمة مع فارق ظهورها للمرة الأولى بشكل علني ومريب على مستوى قيادتي الدولتين رسمياً.

ترامب يشعل الجبهة السعودية – القطرية كأولى نتائج زيارته المنطقة ويغادرها مزهواً بالمغانم بدلاً من توحيد الصف واستكمال حروبه بزخم بوجه روسيا «الخصم التاريخي» وحلفها كما كان مفترضاً.

Syrian War Update – Aleppo, Homs and Rif Dimashq (May 27, 2017): Nationwide blitz

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 P.M.) – Following the astonishing capture of 11 villages in the morning hours, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) proceeded to overrun new sites with ISIS unable to establish a new defensive line due to the sheer pace of government advances.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the SAA also managed to impose full control over the Sukariyah cattle farm, Al-Qari and Al-Bandouqa, bringing them within 1500 meters of Maskanah city’s western gates. Maskanah represents ISIS’ last bastion in Aleppo governorate and the main obstacle preventing Suheil Al-Hassan’s troops from entering neighboring Raqqa province.

After expelling ISIS from its last stretch of territory along the Jabbul Lake for the first time since 2014, the Tiger Forces were able to link up with SAA forces on the Aleppo supply line across a narrow part of the salt lake in a major symbolic victory.

Sunni fighters of the Al-Baqir tribe assisted the advance alongside elements of the 5th Legion, recently redeployed from counter-insurgency operations in eastern Homs.

The Russian Air Force conducted dozens of sorties against ISIS fighters in the Maskanah Plains, providing ISIS insurgents little respite and clearing the way for the blitz offensive.

Jewish Survival Strategies: An Interview with Gilad Atzmon

May 26, 2017  /  Gilad Atzmon

Introduction by GA:  In this interview, Aedon Cassiel (Counter-Currents) focuses on the most problematic and controversial aspects in my work. We spoke about Jewish power in the context of race, biology, genes and eugenics. We delved into Jewish survival strategies, controlled opposition, the identitarian dystopia and nationalist nostalgia. We also looked at The Bell Curve and cognitive partitioning. Cassiel didn’t cut me slack. He criticised my work form right wing vintage. I must admit that I had a lot of fun with his questions. 

By Aedon Cassiel

https://www.counter-currents.com

In your work, who do you consider yourself to be speaking to? If you don’t have a specific audience in mind, then my question is: if only one group of people could hear your message, who would you choose, and what would you have them do about it?

This is important to me. I do not intend to speak to people of any specific persuasion. I am not an activist and have zero interest in political involvement. I am engaged in an intellectual search. Jews fascinate me – their troubled history, their survival strategies, their overrepresentation in media, politics, banking, the Manhattan Project, the list of the one hundred worst landlords in New York City, academia, and their dominance in political lobbying. I am trying to identify the cultural roots at the core of all that. In short, I am interested in the metaphysics that forms the Jew rather than the Jew himself. I am after culture and ideology.

The final third of Being in Time focuses on the idea of “controlled opposition” – specifically, on the idea that Jews tend to both lead and manage criticism of Jews, even of criticism promulgated by other Jews, which has the effect of pushing non-Jews out of the sphere of the debate. Are your efforts another form of attempting to create a controlled opposition? Why or why not?

Thanks for raising this crucial point. If Jewish survival strategy is as sophisticated as I try to suggest, then you and others must take extra caution with Jewish ideologists and ideologies. And yes, I suppose this applies to me, too. My work must be subject to criticism, including the criticism the book itself applies, and hopefully it will stand the test of reflexivity.

What do you mean when you say that Jews “are certainly not a race, nor even an ethnicity”? What do you understand these two terms to mean? Is it that Jews consist of too many different unrelated groups to be fairly considered as a single collective, or do you mean to suggest that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general?

Despite the fact that many Jews insist that they belong to one race and share one father, it is more likely that Jews have not formed a single continuum as far as ancestry, genetics, or biology are concerned. However, it is clear to me that despite the fact that Jews do not form a racial continuum, their politics are always, and I really mean always, racially oriented.

You ask whether I believe that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general? Not at all. However, I am not an evolutionary scientist or an anthropologist, and the study of race or ethnicity isn’t my domain. I dig into some philosophical questions having to do with Jewish identification.

You discuss at length the sociological implications of extensive cognitive partitioning in Jewish society over time, and as a historical cause of this phenomena you talk about the practice of selective breeding in Jewish rabbinical culture. In fact, this is one of the key points to which your work repeatedly comes back. Yet, you seem to want to shy away from claiming that genetic influences are part of the explanation behind why these patterns persist. How could the cognitive partitioning in Jewish society involve genealogy without involving genes? It seems odd to specifically identify breeding patterns as being responsible for this development, and yet – as you seem to – deny that heredity is the method of transmission. What, then, do you think is the mechanism behind this phenomena’s historical persistence?

I have no doubt, as I state in Being in Time, that the European Jewish rabbinical meritocratic system can be understood as a eugenic project. I would be delighted to find out that an evolutionary scientist has decided to look into my theoretical model and produce a scientific study that would verify or refute my theoretical assumptions. Kevin MacDonald has produced the most important work on this topic to date, and the gross animosity he is subject to suggests that he is an Athenian truth-teller – a critical philosophical mind.

You prefer to talk about “ability” as a general term rather than using IQ as a specific instance or measurement of ability. What theories do you have about what is at the core of the superior average “ability” of Jews?

In my work I do not provide facts or statistics. I am raising issues and you, the reader, my listener, are the facts. I produce an interpretation or analysis of a given situation, a set of problems in our current reality, and it is down to you to examine it, play with the ideas, and eventually make a judgment.

I am troubled by IQ measurement without regard to scientific debate over how to measure IQ. “Ability” can be judged by a person’s achievements or merits. John Coltrane achieved more than any other saxophonist. I do not need to see his IQ results. Would Donald Trump score a higher result than Hillary Clinton on an IQ test? I doubt it somehow. Yet he was certainly more “able” to win the election. The reason I refer to ability is because for me, the crucial insight made by Richard Herrnstein and The Bell Curve was that they discerned that America was heading towards a cognitive partitioning. Herrnstein was an academic genius with significant ability. The Bell Curve could have saved the American people, but the book was effectually burned by the favorite “Left” icons: people like Noam Chomsky, academic fraudster Stephen J. Gould, and others. I allow myself to argue that Gould, Chomsky, and those others who trashed The Bell Curve bear direct responsibility for the dystopia in which we live. For me, the issues of the validity of IQ measurement and comparisons between races were side matters. The Bell Curve’s prophetic warnings about cognitive partitioning addressed a topic that has become the core of the oppressive reality in which we live.

Would you say that it’s rational for Jews of higher “ability” to want to keep their society focused towards increased cognitive partitioning?

I find it hard to verify whether it is the result of any conscious decision. What I argue in Being in Time is slightly different. I contend that since America and the West have evolved into cognitively divided environments, and since (Ashkenazi) Jews are accustomed to these conditions, it is hardly surprising that the Jewish Ashkenazi elite is prominent.

In the book, you frequently express a wish to see a return to manufacturing. I agree that this has to be a part of the picture, but presumably you wouldn’t advocate sending academics out to work in factories and fields, for example. So in your view, what precisely would the full dissolution of cognitive partitioning entail, in practical terms? What would we have to do, and how long would it take, and what would the main difficulties be?

I believe that the structure of society will change radically. I do not think that society needs millions of unemployed Gender Studies graduates. For society to be functional, production and agriculture must be reinstated. Higher education must be free for those who are qualified. A functional society must decide what are its primary needs, e.g., how many new doctors are needed, how many engineers, philosophers, feminist scholars, or saxophonists? Academia should be set to provide this education for free and at the highest possible level. This would mean planning. This also suggests that academia wouldn’t continue to operate as a self-serving industry. And yes, if industry, manufacturing, and production are starting to roll, we may find some very intelligent people involved. I do not see this as a negative development. Quite the opposite; society will once again be diverse for real. Isn’t that what the progressives have been promising us for decades?

How extensive do you think the historical influence of identity politics would have been in an American society that never invited Jews in?

Good question, but unfortunately I have no answer. However, I would mention that identity politics operates as a cosmopolitan, revolutionary ideology. In other words, you do not need to be present in a place to spread the ideology.

Would American society have freed the slaves, or given women the vote as quickly, without the influence of Jews? Would feminism have become as radical and divisive?

We have to be careful here. We have to differentiate between political acts that unite us as humans and those which break us up into tribes. The abolition of slavery was an American political project that was partially motivated by ethical reasoning. The same applies to women’s rights. However, radical feminism and lesbian separatism are as separatist as Jewish identity politics (Zionism as well as “anti”). They are biologically-oriented identitarian thoughts that are set to maintain a fragmented, sectarian social environment.

Without identity politics, would black-white relations hold as much tension as they do today? And if Jews both helped press the legitimate form of early identity politics to achieve their aims faster, and held on by the skin of their teeth as identity politics outlived its purpose and became toxic, how can we even begin to analyze the net impact of these two diverging phenomena?

I guess that this is exactly what I attempt to do in Being in Time: I try to dissect the corrosive factors that broke us into sectors.

Your analysis seems to be that Jews have been a leading force in promoting identity politics as a conscious or subconscious means to divide and fracture society in order to normalize the sense of homelessness throughout society that they feel, to ensure that no one else is allowed to have any stronger sense of “belonging” than they do. If the root behind the effort to promote this kind of division is the Jewish sense of homelessness, then why isn’t giving Jews a home – to take away that underlying feeling of homelessness – not a viable answer to the situation?

I actually believe that allocating a national homeland for the Jews was a great idea. I argue that early Zionism was a consistent and coherent movement that was highly effective in its ability to diagnose the Jewish problem and cultural symptoms. Yet, the failure of Zionism suggests that planet Earth may not be a suitable place for such a homeland. Zionism has proven that, despite its initial promise to turn the Jews into “people like all other people,” the Israelis didn’t manage to develop an empathic notion of otherness. Their treatment of the Palestinians proves this point beyond doubt. Israel also fails to love its neighbors. In fact, along with its dedicated Jewish lobbies (AIPAC, CRIFF, CFI, etc.), it relentlessly pushes for global conflicts (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, etc.). Let me make it as clear as I can, though I am accused by some Zionists of reopening the “Jewish question”: I fully acknowledge that I do not have a solution for the problems above, nor am I going to try to solve these problems.

Let’s talk about how intentional you think these Jewish tendencies towards fomenting division are. For instance, Tim Wise is an anti-racist activist who travels around lecturing about giving up white privilege, and challenging everyone else to give up their privileges as he has given up his own. Wise never openly identifies as a Jew, and he speaks about himself as if he were of white European origins. Is it meaningful to talk about someone like Tim Wise, who is of Jewish descent but identifies himself neither religiously nor politically as a Jew or as Jewish?

In The Wandering Who?, I restricted my analysis to those who identify themselves primarily as Jews. This was a relatively easy task, and it helped to clarify that the Zionist and the so-called “anti” are one. In Being in Time, I extended my scope. I am, once again, talking about the Athens/Jerusalem dichotomy. Jerusalemites always know what is kosher and who is treif (basket of deplorables). Progressives behave as a bunch of Jerusalemites who subscribe to secular chosenism. They attribute to themselves a special sense of superiority and at the same time look down on the so-called “reactionary.” Tim Wise and other prog-preachers should self-reflect. He should ask himself why he thinks in racial categories. He should wonder why he subscribes to binary thinking that resembles the Jew/Goy, Kosher/Treif. Can he love his “white” neighbor? While Jerusalem is a form of obedience, Athens is a task, it is a hard job. It involves constant dynamic conceptual shifting intellectually, mentally, spiritually, and ethically.

Do you think someone like Tim Wise is either consciously aware of, or consciously intending, to create the divisive outcomes caused by his style of identity politics? To what extent is any of this conscious?

I really do not know. My role as a philosopher is to refine the questions rather than dictating answers. I certainly believe that these are the kind of questions that Wise should ask himself and that others are entitled to ask of him. In fact, these are the kind of questions each of us ought to ponder.

This question isn’t as focused inside your main line of argument as my others are, but it crossed my mind as I was reading. Is there any reason why Jewish influence over divisive forms of feminism, for example, would be as significant as it was, and yet Jews have not – or to my knowledge, they haven’t yet – co-opted the so-called men’s rights movement, or men’s rights activism? Why would involvement in feminism serve Jewish interests, but not involvement in MRA ideologies?

Great question. Otto Weininger insisted that the Jewish man was actually a woman. Maybe this is the answer to your question. Maybe the reason I decided to stop being a Jew was because I didn’t want to be a woman. I probably have to look into that for a while.

 

Fierce Clashes between ISIL, Nusra Front in Arsal Barrens +18 Graphic Content: Gruesome jihadi infighting kills scores along Syria-Lebanon borders

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2: 40 P.M.) – Scores of jihadi rebels have been killed and injured as the self-proclaimed Islamic State blitzed positions for the rival jihadi group Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham in Juroud Arsal along the Syrian-Lebanese borders.

The assault, which began last night and lasted till early morning, was eventually repelled but proved costly for both terror organizations. At least 30 ISIS jihadists were killed in the process including 5 field commanders who led the offensive from three axes.

As for the al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria, 5 HTS militants have been killed along with 6 jihadi rebels from its allied Saraya Ahl al-Sham; an ultraconservative pro-Qaeda faction mainly active in the Qalamoun region.

Following the clashes, the HTS asked the Lebanese Army to transfer 8 of its wounded fighters through the Red Cross to receive medical treatment in government hospitals.

This comes as the notorious jihadi group was involved in negotiation talks with the Lebanese Hezbollah to be evacuated to the northwestern province of Idlib; now entirely under jihadists’ control.

– يتزامن النزف الدموي المتواصل للأقباط المصريين كصندوق بريد مجاني بلا كلفة تلجأ إليه الجماعات الإرهابية المدعومة من تركيا وقطر والمحسوبة على جناحين إخواني وداعشي، مع حملة إعلامية قاسية ونابية شنّتها صحف سعودية على الرئيس اللبناني ميشال عون ووزير الخارجية جبران باسيل لجأت خلالها إحدى هذه الصحف، «عكاظ»، إلى كلام مسيء وغير لائق وأوصاف معيبة وجّهتها لكلّ من الرئيس عون والوزير باسيل، على خلفية كلام مهذب ولائق وتصرّف تسووي اعتمده الرئيس والوزير لمنع التصادم مع السعودية. فارتضى الرئيس التغاضي عن خرق سعودي لأصول التخاطب بين الدول وتوجيه الدعوة لرئيس الحكومة لحضور قمة الرياض، وارتضى هو والوزير سقفاً للاعتراض على بيان القمة لا يزعج السعودية ولا يجرح مهابتها.

– للحظة بدا أنّ مسيحيّي الشرق تحوّلوا مكسر عصا لدول ترعى الأجنحة التي تحترف القتل والموت على مساحة المنطقة والعالم، ويكفي لمعرفة سجلها الإجرامي سماع ما تقوله بحق بعضها بعضاً على صدر صفحات صحفها الكبرى وفي قنواتها الفضائية العملاقة، المكرّسة هذه الأيام لنشر الغسيل الإرهابي المتبادل. كذلك تكفي استعادة ما قاله بحقها أثناء حملته الانتخابية الرئيس الأميركي الذي تحلّقوا من حوله يحتفون بقدومه، وما كانت هذه الدول لتجرؤ على التمادي بحق مَن كانت تعتبرهم تحت الحماية الغربية، لولا ضوء أخضر من الغرب أو شعور بزوال الخط الأحمر الذي كان مرسوماً لحماية هذا الوجود. فهذه الدول الراعية للإرهاب تعيش تحت عباءة الحماية الغربية وتعمل وفقاً لجدول طلبات وأوامر أميركية.

– العبث بدماء مسيحيّي مصر لإيصال رسالة لرئيسها، والتطاول على مقام رئاسة الجمهورية في لبنان، لإبلاغه الامتعاض، ظاهرتان جديدتان. ففي ذروة التصادم مع الرئيس إميل لحود تحفظت الصحافة السعودية عن قول كلام مشابه للذي قالته بحق الرئيس ميشال عون. وفي ذروة الصدام مع الرئيس المصري حسني مبارك كان القطريون والسعوديون والأتراك يتهيّبون تبني وحماية جماعات مسلحة تلعب بدماء المصريين. والحسابات التي كان يقيمها الجميع تجاه الرئاسة في لبنان والأقباط في مصر في بعض منها تحسّب لمكانة كان يحتلها في الحساب الغربي، مسيحيو الشرق الذين يرمز لكثافتهم السكانية أقباط مصر ولمكانتهم السياسية الرئيس اللبناني.

– ثمّة تحوّل نوعي يتخطّى تبني معادلات مذهبية ضيقة، يطال استسهال اللجوء إلى كيس ملاكمة يمثله مسيحيّو الشرق. ولا يمكن ردّ الاعتبار بالحكمة وحسابات المصالح الانتخابية الضيقة، ولا الإدارة الناعمة للسياسة، فثمّة صراخ يجب أن يرتفع بكلمة كفى، ويد تضرب على الطاولة في مكان ما تقول لأحدهم: أبلغ جماعتك، إنّ هذا اللعب لا ينفع معنا، وهذا التطاول لا يمرّ من دون حساب، وليس مسيحيّو الشرق مَن يبيع كرامته ووجوده المعنوي بوعود بموسم سياحي لمصر أو لبنان. كلام ربما من المفيد أن يقوله الرئيس اللبناني من منبر الكنيسة القبطية في تعزية عاجلة شخصية وتاريخية بضحايا المجازر تصل أصداؤها لمن أمر بالقتل في المنيا بالطريق الصحراوي، ومَن أمر بكتابة المقالات الرخيصة بأقلام أشدّ رخصاً، ولمن يأمر وينهى وراء المحيطات، العنصري الذي باع صمته بكيس المال والذهب.

First guided tour of Aleppo’s historic sites since city’s liberation (VIDEO)

(RUPTLY) A guided walking-tour of Aleppo’s major historic attractions took place on Friday, for the first time since the war-torn city was liberated from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS). The tour marked the opening of the tourist season.

Around 300 students from across the country alongside local citizens were spotted taking pictures at the compound of the Umayyad Mosque and in front of Aleppo’s ancient citadel which is heavily damaged after five years of war. A special concert with music and dancing was later organised for Aleppo citizens at the amphitheater.

Aleppo citizen and tour guide, Anushka Arakelyan, said that people hoped that the city “will be the same as it was before the war.”

“There are no nationalities here. All people love each other; all live together, rejoice together, cry together and wait together,” she added.

“Aleppo will be the same as it was before the war. We hope and wait,” Arakelyan said.

“As one Russian song says, we hope and wait, and we will wait and hope,” she added.

“We love Aleppo very much. Aleppo is a very good city, very hospitable city. I’m very happy to live here. Here, there are no nationalities. All people love each other; all live together, rejoice together, cry together and wait together,” she concluded.
