2023.03.24 07:06 TheTribeofYHWH Isaiah 52:13-53:12: Everyone take a moment to read.

I want to share a passage that as integral in my conversion to Christianity with everyone, as well as my notes on it, out of pure zeal. Enjoy!
\God Speaks:]) See, my servant shall succeed; he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high. Just as there were many who were astonished at you—so marred was his appearance, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of mortals—so he shall sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths because of him; for that which had not been told them they shall see, and that which they had not heard they shall contemplate. \Israel Speaks:]) Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For he grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by others; a man of pains and acquainted with sorrows; and like the hiding of the face for him, he was despised, and we held him of no account. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. We all like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own ways, but the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By a perversion of justice he was taken away. Yet who of his generation even considered that he was cut off from the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people to whom the blow belonged? They made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him with weakness. When you make his life a guilt offering, he shall see offspring, and shall prolong days; and through him the will of the Lord shall prosper. Out of his anguish he shall see light; he shall find satisfaction through his knowledge. \God Speaks:]) The righteous one, my servant, shall make many to be considered righteous, and he shall bear their sins. Therefore I will allot him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the multitudes; because he poured out his life to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of the many, and will intervene for the transgressors.
Notes on Isaiah 52:13-53:13.
There is huge debate and controversy over the identity of the Servant in Isaiah. On the one hand, Isaiah says Israel is the Servant outside of the Servant songs. On the other hand, the Servant reads like an individual in the Servant songs. There is a quite simple resolution to this. While the Servant is identified as Jacob-Israel outside of the songs, the nation of Israel is revealed within the dynamic movement of the four Servant songs as being embodied in a suffering individual figure. So, the Servant never stops being "Israel," but "Jacob-Israel" undergoes a reduction down to one within these songs. This is not my invention but is rather a prominent scholarly opinion. For example, Ricki Watts writes in his 1990 article: "In cognizance of the individual traits . . . it would appear that true Israel has been reduced to one (cf. 53:6 and ch. 48)" - Rikki Watts, 1990: p. 55. Jan L. Koole writes that Deutero-Isaiah's "reproaches to the Israel of his day, esp. in chap. 48, are so sharp and so much aimed at the people as a whole, that this 'true' Israel has undergone an extreme reduction (Simon, Sawyer) and must, it seems, be confined to an individual" - J.L. Koole, Isaiah III, Vol. 2 (Peeters, 1998), pp. 12-13. Brevard S. Childs writes: "what is crucial to observe is that one, bearing all the marks of an individual historical figure, has been named servant, not to replace corporate Israel—the servant in Second Isaiah remains inseparable from Israel—but as a faithful embodiment of the nation Israel who has not performed its chosen role (48:1–2)" - Brevard S. Childs, Isaiah: A Commentary (OTL, 2001), p. 385. Mark S. Gignilliat writes: "a movement has been noted in the drama of Isaiah 40–55, a movement from the Servant as Israel to the Servant as an individual who takes on the role of Israel as restorer of Zion and light to the nations. Thus, neither the emphasis on Israel’s special role in God’s redemptive economy nor the highly individual language attributed to the Servant after Isaiah 48 is lost. The Servant is Israel, the Servant is an individual" - Mark S. Gignilliat 2008: 125-126. Paul R. Raabe writes: "the reader should understand the “Servant of Yahweh” who is to restore collective Israel and atone for collective Israel as Israel-reduced-to-one, God’s Israel-in-one" - Paul Raabe 2018: 331.
The Servant within the Servant Songs can't be Jacob-Israel as a collective, because there are numerous points of contrast between the Servant and Israel as a nation.
  1. For example, in Isa. 49:5-6 the Servant has a mission to the nation as a group. This means that the nation as Servant is understood to shrink in size. But is this shrinking in size down to one person, or a righteous remnant? Isaiah 49:6 qualifies Israel as the remnant, so the reduction of the Servant seems to be down to one person.
  2. One also can't so easily compare the individual language applied to Israel outside of the songs with the Servant in the songs, since Israel as Servant is intentionally shrunk down in size so as to be distinct from Israel as a nation (as indicated by Isa. 49:5-6), along with the heightening of the individualistic language in each successive song. This combination of shrinking and heightening seems to signify an intentional reduction of what the prophet considered true Israel down to one.
  3. Further, the switch from the "Servant" in Isaiah 40-53 to the collective "servants" of the Servant motif in Isaiah 54-66 (see the "servants"/"offspring" section below) through the Servant's offspring implies that the Servant Songs have, in the context of the book as a whole, both a (primary) individual sense, referring to the Servant, and a (secondary) collective sense, referring to the faithful remnant, (cf. Isaiah 50:10-11), the servants of the Servant. If the Servant was the righteous remnant in the first place, it seems strange to refer to the Servant in the singular in the Servant songs at first and then in the plural after the last Servant song, instead of having the word "Servant" be in the plural all the way through or singular all the way though.
  4. Lastly, the people of Israel and its remnant in the context of Isaiah are transgressors (e.g., Isa. 46:1-12; 48:1-11), while the Servant is faithful and righteous (Isa. 53:9, 11).
Many other points could be raised. Isaiah 49:3 does not preclude this, unless one begs the question against the "Israel-reduced-to-one" view. Plus, in Isa. 49:3, the name of Israel is probably a predicate: "you are Israel" (Jaap Dekker 2012: 38-39). As a result of arguments like these, Joseph Blenkinsopp writes in his Yale commentary on Isaiah 40-55:
"Ever since Christopher R. North surveyed the range of opinion on the identity of the Servant in 1948 (2d ed., 1956), no significant new options have emerged. While there was then and still is a strong critical preference for an individual rather than a collective interpretation, none of the fifteen individuals named as candidates by one commentator or another and listed by North has survived scrutiny" (Joseph Blenkinsopp, Isaiah 40-55 [AYBC; Yale University Press, 2002]: 355).
So, is the Servant an individual or Israel? Both!
The human Servant in Isaiah 52:13 is implied to somehow be YHWH Himself, as recognized by many scholars. The phrase ר֧וּם plus וְ plus נִשָּׂ֛א appears only in Isaiah 6:1; 52:13; 57:15 out of the entire Hebrew Bible, and in Isaiah 6:1 and 57:15 they refer to God. In addition, Isaiah 57:15 and 52:13 seem to refer to the earlier text (Isa. 6:1, which unambiguously refers to God). Moreover, the words ר֧וּם and נִשָּׂ֛א almost always apply to YHWH in Isaiah, and Isaiah 2 makes it clear that only YHWH should be ר֧וּם or נִשָּׂ֛א, as do other Isaian texts. In the exceptions where these terms are applied to other entities, those entities are to be humbled (e.g., Isa. 2:13). Thus, the Servant in the narrative shares the glory of YHWH, which however only belongs to YHWH alone (Isa. 2:11, 17; 42:8; 48:11). For example, Isaiah 2:11, 17 says that: "Yahweh alone will be exalted." Isaiah 42:8 and 48:11 says that YHWH shares his glory with no other. For all these points, see: Mark S. Gignilliat 2008, pp. 131-132; Daniel J. Brendsel 2014, p. 143; and Jaap Dekker 2017, pp. 475-491. Additional points can be raised as well, such as the fact that the Servant calls upon the nations to "listen to me" (Isa. 49:1), even though every time the word "listen" is followed by אֵלַ֔י ("to me") as the direct object, "it is always God who draws attention to himself, 46:3, 12; 48:12; 51:1, 7; 55:3, and so 'listen to me' in this v. also suggests a speaker who transcends the merely human" (Jan L. Koole, Isaiah 49-55, p. 7).
This verse alludes to the suffering the Servant goes through later in the very same song (e.g., "stricken," "smitten," "afflicted," "pierced," "crushed," "punishment," "wounds," etc.). It is not saying that the Servant-Messiah was the ugliest man of all time. It is reminiscent of the Psalter in Psalm 22:6 who says that "I am a worm, and not human." It would be a mistake to interpret this physically.
There is much scholarly disagreement as to whether yazzeh denotes a "sprinkling" or a "startling." The arguments for "startle" or "leap up" are mostly speculative and weak, whereas the arguments for the translation "sprinkle" are primarily based off of solid and existing datums/evidence. Most versions support the translation argued here: e.g., Aquila and Theodotion ('sprinkle'), Vulgate asperget ('sprinkle'), the Peshitta mdk' ('purify'). Most Hebrew texts also support a sprinkling, e.g., our earliest witnesses such as 1QIsa, 1QIsb. "Startle" might be supported by the LXX ('will be astonished'), but, as Goldingay points out: "the latter is as likely a loose translation" (Isaiah 40-55, p. 295). Many scholars relate yazzeh to Arab. nazâ (to spring up, leap), and translate it as "startle." Yet this is wrong. As Goulder points out in his 2002 VT article, (a) outside of this verse in question, the use of this root is unattested in all ancient Hebrew, and (b) the "Arabic term from which it derives denotes physical leaping with no necessary connotations of emotional surprise" (Michael Goulder 2002: 179). The typical arguments against the form of yazzeh being an Hiphil imperfect of nazah, meaning ‘to sprinkle’ (which it means everywhere else in the Hebrew Bible) are: (a) the lack of a substance in the accusative, and (b) the lack of 'al or some such preposition, but rather an anomalous usage where the nations are the direct object of the verb. However, the argument based off the lack of these features is at once rendered weak (especially in light of the above) when we realize that we are dealing with poetry (Paba Nidhani De Andrado 2021: 290). Additionally, Leviticus 4:6, 17 are likely examples of cases where the object or person sprinkled is the direct object of the verb instead of being indicated by a prepositional phrase, though the text there is difficult (see Isaksson Bo, “The Textlinguistics of the Suffering Servant: Subordinate Structures in Isaiah 52,13-53,12,” in En Pase Grammatike Kai Sophia: Saggi Di Linguistica Ebraica in Onore Di Alviero Niccacci, Ofm Studium Biblicum Franciscanum: Analecta 78, 2011), pp. 189-190 (esp. fn. 32). "It has been suggested that the Servant’s “sprinkling” of the nations implies the redemptive significance of his work in their behalf" (James P. Ware, Paul and the Mission of the Church, Philippians in Ancient Jewish Context, 2011, p. 588, n. 110). See H.W. Hertzberg, “Die ‘Abtrünnigen’ und die ‘Vielen’: Ein Beitrag zu Jes 53,” Verbannung und Heimkehr (FS W. Rudolph; ed. J. Kuschke; Tübingen: MohSiebeck, 1961), p. 103; Alviero Niccacci, “Quarto carme del Servo del Signore (Is 52,13-53,12). Composizione, dinamiche e prospettive” (Liber Annuus vol. 55, 2005), p. 21.
I think it is the followers or "offspring" of the Servant = the "servants" of the Servant = the new Israel that speaks in the main body of Isaiah 53. A recent scholar who takes this interpretation of the speaker is R.W.L. Moberly: "My own preferred context-of-origin-oriented reading, for what it’s worth, is that the “we” who speak in Isa 53:1–10 are disciples of the servant, who because of him have themselves become “servants” (54:17) and seek to continue his message and work" - Moberly, "Salvation in the Old Testament," Journal of Theological Interpretation, 2021, p. 199. That Israel in some form is speaking is indicated by the following points,
Other points could be added too. However, it is the new Israel which speaks in Isaiah 53 (or at least the nations are included in the benefits of the speaker), as made clear by Isaiah 54-55 and by the fact that Isaiah 53 is a confession of those who believe the Servant and identify with the Servant (hence the name "servants"). In Isaiah 53:10, it says that the Servant will "see" his "offspring" and make many righteous. Ever since the JSOT essay by W.A.M. Beuken published in 1990, scholars have widely realized that, after the reference to the servant "seeing" his offspring in Isaiah 53:10, the figure of the individual servant is replaced by community called the “servants” in the plural (Isa. 54:17; 56:6; 63:17; 65:8, 9, 13-15; 66:14) and “offspring" (Isa. 59:21; 61:8-9; 65:9, 23; 66:22), who identify with the Servant and form a new Israel (see above). In the prophetic message of Isaiah, Israel is not the ethnic nation as a whole, but the faithful remnant of Israel, joined by the coming influx of gentiles. See Isaiah 19:23-25 and 56:1-8, plus many others.
Some scholars think that the nations/kings speak in Isaiah 53 due to the natural flow between Isaiah 52:15 and 53:1, as well as lexical connections which establishes continuity between the two verses. However, this continuity serves to include the nations/kings in the confession rather than identify the speaker with the nations/kings. In other words, gentiles are grafted into the new Israel = the "servants" (something explicitly expressed in e.g., Isaiah 56:3-8), who speak in the main body of Isaiah 53.
Here, "pierced" is the best translation. If we see how the root chalal is used in biblical Hebrew, we see that it primarily means either "profane" or “pierced.” See Job 26:13; Jer. 14:18; 41:9; Ezek 6:13; 9:7; 28:7, 9; 32:26; 2 Sam. 23:8, 18 and especially Isaiah 22:2; 51:9 for a piercing. Since the context suggests a connotation stronger then "profane," it seems like "pierced" is our best bet. Most importantly, in Isaiah 51:9, "pierced" (applied to a chaos creature) is the best translation due to the parallelism present with how Rahab is said to be "hacked in pieces" (הַמַּחְצֶ֥בֶת). Kristin Joachimsen writes that the word ְמחָֹלל in Isa. 53:15 "is most often taken to be חלל II “pierce”, cf. Isa. 51:9" - Kristin Joachimsen, Identities in Transition: The Pursuit of Isa. 52:13-53:12 (Leiden: Brill, 2011), pp. 113, fn. 95.
Regarding the min, there is nothing wrong with translating the min as "because of," but that is meant vicariously. The preposition in itself denotes cause or reason. The nature of the cause or reason is determined by the context. In Isaiah 53:5 the cause or reason is substitutionary and vicarious: e.g., "The Lord laid on him the iniquity of us all" (verse 6). Also, see the bet pretii in verse 5b ("by his wounds we were healed").
Regarding the word that is sometimes translated as "crushed," מְדֻכָּ֖א, often denotes death or oppression/inner humiliation in the Hebrew Bible, including in Isaiah (3:15; 57:15). And this is not a matter of "literal vs. metaphorical" interpretation. It's taking seriously the semantic range of the word, especially in the genre we are dealing with.
Simon J. Joseph in his book Jesus and the Temple (2016) argues that: "The implication in the NRSV is that it is an individual who is afflicted (“he was stricken”) whereas in the MT, למו may be a synonym for להם meaning “them,” “fofrom them,” or “to them,” suggesting that it is the nation (Israel) that is stricken. Indeed, the word is translated usually as a plural form..." (pp. 224). However, the latter portion of v. 8 is (famously, notoriously) textually uncertain, with different readings in the MT, LXX, and 1QIsaiah from Qumran. Moreover, it is possible to construe the grammar of the sentence in question quite differently, with the people being the reference of lamo, but still able to obtain a meaning that is very much in line with a singular understanding of the servant in this passage: "... of my people to whom the blow belonged" - but now it has been diverted to the Servant. Given the textual uncertainty, it becomes clear that Joseph’s counter-objection has no force.
Simon J. Joseph argues in his book Jesus and the Temple that: "Isa 53:9 uses the plural form for “in his deaths” (במתיו) . . . The Hebrew term for “in his death” would be במותו, not במתיו. If this is the case, then the Servant cannot be an individual, but rather corporate Israel" (pp. 224-225). . However, as Hebrew grammarians know, the word for "death" here can be used in the plural as an intensive (see J.L. Koole, Isaiah 49-55, p. 314), especially in poetry. Plus, the suffix is a singular third person suffix. There is a reason why practically every modern translation and every commentary of which I am aware understand this as the singular, "death."
In Isaiah 53:10, it says that the Servant will "see offspring" and make many righteous. Ever since. the JSOT essay by W.A.M. Beuken published in 1990, many scholars have widely realized that, after the reference to the servant "seeing" offspring in Isaiah 53:10, the figure of the individual servant is replaced by a community called the “servants” in the plural (Isa. 54:17; 56:6; 63:17; 65:8, 9, 13-15; 66:14) and “offspring" (e.g., Isa. 59:21; 61:8-9; 65:9, 23; 66:22), who identify with the Servant and form a new Israel (W.A.M. Beuken 1990: pp. 67-87). Thus, the "offspring" in Isa. 53:10 (and the reference of the Servant making "many" righteous in 53:11) serves as a fulcrum for this entire shift in focus from Servant to this community called the "servants" or "offspring" - the followers of the Servant who identify with him. Regarding the "offspring" and the "servants of the Servant," they fit Jesus and his followers (see above).
James P. Ware writes: "that the Servant is portrayed in the fourth Song as restored from death to life is recognized by the majority of interpreters. The text is explicit that following his demise the Servant “will prolong days” (53:10) and “will see light” (53:11). [The word] אוׁר (“light”), omitted in MT, is attested by IQIsa-a, IQIsa-b, 4QIsa-d, and LXX, and is doubtless the original reading. References to “light” thus recur in all four Servant poems (42:6; 49:6; 50:10-11; 53:11)" - James P. Ware, Paul and the Mission of the Church, Philippians in Ancient Jewish Context, 2011, p. 75. The Servant also "divides spoil" after his death.
The spoil that the Servant divides is his salvation, exaltation and unique role in continuing the plan of YHWH. Thus, the "servants" of the Servant participate in the Servant's redemptive mission and shares his victory (cf. Isa. 55:1-3).
"The many" who have their sins carried by the Servant include gentiles. The "many" recalls the use of "many" with reference to the "many nations" that the Servant sprinkles in Isa. 52:15. The very mention of the Servant sprinkling the nations implies their inclusion to begin with. That gentiles are included is proven by the fact that Gentiles are included in the Servant's Kingdom and mission (Isa. 42:4, 6; 49:6-7), and the fact that Isaiah 54-56 describes the people who are redeemed by the Servant as including those of the nations (54:17; cf. 56:3-8).

2023.03.24 03:07 lovelyme6969 Naming our first baby

Salam and Ramadan Mubarak! My husband and I are expecting our first baby in a few weeks. It’ll be the 9th grandchild for my parents and the first grandchild and grandson for my husbands. I am Palestinian and was born and raised in the states, my husband is Azerbaijani and moved here for school over 15 years ago. My husbands parents are insisting on naming the baby however, the name they want is extremely harsh and can easily be made fun of (it sounds like a slang word for a woman’s private parts) and my husband doesn’t want our son to be teased in school. I’m trying to come up with names that are easy in Arabic, Azerbaijani and English. My husbands parents want a strictly Azerbaijani name and although I respect them and their traditions I had my heart set on one name, my husband doesn’t feel too strongly about any but I do. His parents want a common name in azerbaijan and I came up with one that my MIL liked but after some time she decided it wasn’t common enough of an Azeri name and wants something more traditional. My husband yesterday got into yelling match with his parents and brother over the name and I don’t want to stress him out further. My mom say to keep quiet and when the baby arrives to just pick the name I’ve wanted since i was a little girl. My dad says appease my in-laws and give my son a nick name. What’s the best way with dealing with this situation?

2023.03.24 03:06 salsazza Studying Islam and Arabic in Saudi

Al Salam alaykum! Insha’Allah you are all doing well. I was wondering whether I could get assistance on where to look regarding studying Islam and Arabic in Saudi.
I am currently living in the West and will be graduating from university this year insha’Allah and am looking to study the deen in Saudi (Insha’Allah) but every time I try to research institutions that teach Arabic and deen there does not seem to be any results. I’ve gone on the umm al qurra website and I can’t seem to find any admissions pages or any application guidance or specific details so I’m stumped. I would prefer that wherever I study that it is in mecca or madina but my main priority is finding somewhere suitable.
Please let me me know of any institutions or universities that are good for me to look into further.
(Just to give background alhamdullilah I can speak, read and understand Arabic as I am Arab but having grown up in the west my Arabic writing is very weak and my reading is very slow so I would like to overall strengthen my Arabic and become fully fluent so I would love a university that has a good Arabic course)
Barak Allah feekum

2023.03.24 01:53 sniperandgarfunkel how were palestinian jews treated by their christian and muslim neighbors in the ottoman empire, particularly before the arrival of the new yishuv and the rise of political zionism?

ive only found anecdotes on the relationship between the old yishuv (pre-existing community of palestinian jews) and non jewish palestinians.
both palestinians and israeli jews have said during interviews by corey gil shuster that relations between jews and non jews were relatively cordial [1, 2, 3]. faisal i of iraq stated that "we arabs have none of the racial or religious animosity which unfortunately prevaul in many other regions of the world. i assure you that with the jews who have been seated for some generations in palestine our relations are excellent"[3]. according to khalil al-sakakini and wasif jawhariyyeh, palestinian jews were often referred to and described as abnaa al-balad (sons of the country), 'compatriots', or yahud awlad arab (jews, sons of arabs) [4].
finally, during the 18th century rabbi abraham gershon of kitov wrote from hebron that "the gentiles here very much love the jews. When there is a brit milah (circumcision ceremony) or any other celebration, their most important men come at night and rejoice with the Jews and clap hands and dance with the jews, just like the jews'." [5].
jewish history in ottoman syria is dotted with riots or even pogroms, but some of these seem to be violence and looting for the sake of it rather than targeted attacks towards the jewish community. along with other minorities, jewish people were dhimmi status and consequently were repressed. are the above quotes a good depiction of the relationship between jews and non jews? what am i missing?

2023.03.24 00:04 Shahid9s Not Excited for Ramadan...

Do you know why some Muslims say they have no energy or excitment for Ramadan or Eid? They don't feel that same joy?
Read below to understand why.
It is impossible for humans to engage in continual holiday celebrations. Such celebrations require time, money, energy, and attention. Humans only have limited amounts of these things. The more time, money, energy, and attention that are devoted to one holiday, the less will be available for others.
This is one reason (but not the only reason) why it is so objectionable for Muslims to celebrate Birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Holi, Diwali, Chinese New Year, Valentines Day, Halloween, Independence Day, Father's Day, Gay Pride Month, Nowruz, etc.
Celebrations of this type inevitably drain away resources from Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr, as well as Hajj Season and Eid al-Adha.
The Muslims who are least excited and energized for Ramadan are those who have spent the past year celebrating Birthdays, dressing up as Halloween ghouls, and throwing around colored Holi powder.
Compassionate Imams and reformers who have made these celebrations permissible with their goofy "fiqh" and the masajid committees who hold these holiday festivals because they are so desperate for approval from non-Muslims, they are the ones to blame.

Decisive and urgent measures of the UNSC are necessary. Artsakh MFA in connection with the targeting of the population

“On 22 March, the Azerbaijani armed forces, once again violating the ceasefire, opened fire on civilians engaged in agricultural work in the administrative area of the town of Chartar of Artsakh’s Martuni region. This is already the third case of targeting civilians by Azerbaijan within a week. We recall that on 15 March, farmers working in the vineyards in the area adjacent to the Amaras Valley of the Martuni region, and on March 19, a civilian doing agricultural work on a tractor in the administrative area of the village of Taghavard were targeted with small arms fire from Azerbaijani combat positions. It is obvious that such attacks, which have become more frequent recently, are part of Azerbaijan's long-standing and consistent policy and are aimed at creating unbearable living conditions in Artsakh, harming the country's economy, and exerting psychological pressure on Artsakh Armenians. It is within this policy that for more than 100 days now, Artsakh has been under a blockade orchestrated by the Azerbaijani authorities, as a result of which the delivery of food, medicine and other vital supplies to the republic has been reduced to a minimum, and the rights of the people of Artsakh to free movement, proper medical care, education and other fundamental rights have been violated. Moreover, the Azerbaijani side regularly cuts the gas supply to Artsakh, obstructs the repair of the damaged high-voltage power line coming from Armenia, depriving the people of Artsakh of basic living conditions. Against the backdrop of the critical humanitarian situation in Artsakh, the demonstrations of the so-called "eco-activists" are accompanied by music, dancing, fireworks, consumption of alcohol and parties, which resemble a coven of hate in celebration of Azerbaijan's illegal and inhuman blockade of Artsakh and the suffering of 120 thousand people. By targeting civilians engaged in agricultural work, Azerbaijan is trying to prevent the citizens of Artsakh from mitigating, to some extent, the serious problems of food shortage caused by the blockade. Azerbaijan strives at all costs to break the will of the people of Artsakh to live freely in their homeland and does not shy away even from terrorist acts, such as the sabotage attack of 5 March, which left three Artsakh police officers killed and one seriously wounded. Clearly nationalist, anti-Armenian and inhumane calls are regularly made both by the country's top leadership and ordinary citizens. The latest such example is a video widely circulated recently in the Azerbaijani media, in which one of the “eco-activists” who blocked the Lachin Corridor, with Azerbaijan's connivance, literally threatens to slaughter an Armenian on the occasion of Nowruz holiday.
Against the background of the genocidal policy pursued by Azerbaijan at the state level, we consider it necessary for the United Nations Security Council to take decisive and urgent measures aimed at ensuring the fundamental rights of the people of Artsakh and preventing the genocidal intentions of Azerbaijan. We are convinced that the best and most effective way to save the people of Artsakh from ethnic cleansing and genocide is to recognise their right to self-determination and establish it as the basis for the conflict settlement”.

There will be no new escalation. Pashinyan emphasizes the support of the international community for the peace treaty

"There will be a peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and it will be based on the joint official statements adopted at the highest level. There won’t be а new escalation! The international community must strongly support this narrative," the Prime Minister wrote.

Russia calls for resumption of Armenian-Azerbaijani talks

“We are really concerned by the increasing hostile rhetoric and the growing number of incidents in Nagorno Karabakh, and the unwillingness of the parties to reach an agreement in resolving the situation around Lachin Corridor,” Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a press briefing, adding that there is no alternative to the peace process. “We are resolute in this matter and we reaffirm our stance,” she added.
Zakharova called for a resumption of the Armenian-Azerbaijani negotiations.
“We call on the parties to display restraint in their statements and actions, to resume negotiations in all directions of the Armenian-Azerbaijani settlement, including unblocking of transport connections, border delimitation, preparation of the peace treaty, holding of meetings between public figures and parliamentarians and other [directions],” she said.

Nagorno Karabakh says direct talks with Azerbaijan possible only in international format with guarantees

Nagorno Karabakh Foreign Minister Sergey Ghazaryan said at a press conference that Russia-mediated meetings have taken place between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan pertaining to various humanitarian and technical issues. Ghazaryan underscored that Azerbaijan attempted to distort the agenda of the latest meeting.
The goal of that meeting was to discuss issues relating to the disruptions of the electricity and gas supplies, he said. “The attempts by Azerbaijan to distort the agenda of the meeting are unacceptable. But at the same time, we stand ready to have meetings in the same format, with the mediation of Russian peacekeepers, for the solution of the abovementioned issues,” Ghazaryan said when asked in which case the meetings could become negotiations.
Speaking about a full negotiations process, the FM said: “We’ve numerously said that such meetings can only take place in an international format. The substantiations are rather clear.”
Ghazaryan noted that if Azerbaijan even violated the agreements reached in the OSCE Minsk Group talks, then it would definitely violate bilateral agreements as well.
“Only under an international format, and guarantees of implementation of obligations must be the most important component of such a process,” Ghazaryan added.

The Threat Reduction Agency of the Department of Defense of the United States of America provides technical equipment, all-terrain vehicles, and spare parts to Armenia as a donation within the framework of the "Proliferation Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction" program.

According to the decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, the said property will be attached to the National Security Service of the Republic of Armeniatoo to solve the problems the border guard troops face more effectively.
This project, included among the non-reportable issues, was approved at the government session and will be submitted to the parliament for ratification shortly.

Nagorno Karabakh officials rule out “integration” with Azerbaijan

“The Armenian side’s substantiations are so many that it is very clear, visible and understandable for everyone, including the international partners, that there can’t be a combination of the Armenians of Artsakh and Azerbaijan, this is simply ruled out,” he said.

French Foreign Minister announces upcoming Armenia trip

Colonna told French lawmakers during question time that she will visit Armenia and Azerbaijan towards the end of April.
Senator Philippe Pemezec asked Colonna whether the French government is ready to provide as much diplomatic and military support to Armenia as it did to Ukraine.
In response, the French FM said: “France has condemned the closure of Lachin Corridor by Azerbaijan since the first day. This blockade causes tension. I plan to visit Yerevan and Baku in the end of April to convey this message. France is taking measures.”

Armenia protects, provides representation for minorities, while Azerbaijan persecutes – PM slams monoethnic narrative

“First of all, such wordings are a gross interference into Armenia’s domestic affairs, moreover, national minorities not only do exist in Armenia, but they are also represented, they have mandates in the Parliament of Armenia, and this is guaranteed under the Constitution. At this moment there are four Members of Parliament representing the national minorities. And if such narratives don’t constitute interference into a country’s domestic affairs, then let’s say for the record that the persecutions against not only the press, the opposition, but also the national minorities are of systematic nature in Azerbaijan. The international press is full of articles about the murders and imprisonments of the leading activists protecting the interests of national minorities in Azerbaijan. Furthermore, many of these cases are revealed by eyewitnesses, the activists who survived torture and persecutions, or the families of the killed activists. Perhaps Azerbaijan ought to display goodwill and define seat quotas in its parliament for national minorities and guarantee it under its constitution. Perhaps this would be the first step in correcting the situation,” PM Pashinyan said at the Cabinet meeting.
In conclusion, Pashinyan added that a peace treaty will be achieved on the basis of the written documents that have been reached on the highest levels so far.
He said that Armenia will not deviate even for a moment from the path of developing Armenia and strengthening its democracy.

The international community cannot allow another genocide, Armenian FM tells Egyptian AlQahera news agency

“The position of the international community, including our partners and friends in the Arab world should be clear against any narrative and actions perpetrating another genocide, the international system cannot afford to sustain yet another such failure,” the Foreign Minister said.
“Despite all the risks and the fragility of the situation around my country, Armenia remains determined to make its contribution to creating a stable region where our generations won’t just dream about living in peace,” he added.

PACE Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights calls on Azerbaijan to “implement without delay” World Court ruling

“The Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights of the Parliament Assembly of the Council of Europe is greatly concerned by the humanitarian crisis unfolding due to the ongoing obstruction of the Lachin Corridor. This corridor is the lifeline between those living in Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia, and the Committee fully supports the public statement made by the Parliamentary Assembly co-rapporteurs for the monitoring of Armenia on 24 February 2023, calling for “immediate action” and “the immediate cessation of the unlawful and illegitimate obstruction of the Lachin corridor”. The Committee also calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to implement without delay the measures addressed to it by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) of 22 February 2023 and of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) of 21 December 2022 whose decisions noted the obligation on Azerbaijan under the Trilateral Statement, signed on 9 November 2020, to “guarantee the security of persons, vehicles and cargo moving along the Lachin Corridor in both directions” (Article 6 of the Trilateral Statement).1 The Committee furthermore refers to other international statements addressed to the authorities of Azerbaijan on the same issue, including - the joint statement of the four co-rapporteurs of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe for the monitoring of Azerbaijan and Armenia of December 16, 2022, which states that “Freedom and security of movement of persons and goods must be urgently restored along the corridor. We call on all parties to the Trilateral Statement of 9-10 November 2020 to immediately take the necessary measures”, and - the European Parliament resolution of 19 January 2023 on the humanitarian consequences of the blockade in Nagorno-Karabakh.”

Dutch MFA summons Azerbaijani envoy to communicate the need to fully implement the ICJ ruling on Lachin corridor

FAON says it has taken note of the answers by Dutch Foreign Minister Wobke Hoekstra to the written questions of 13 parliamentary factions about the ICJ ruling of 22 February 2022 on blockade of Lachin Corridor (Armenia v. Azerbaijan). Minister Hoekstra agrees with the MP’s, that there is non-compliance by Azerbaijan with the Judgement of the ICJ on the blockade of the Lachin Corridor. According to the Court ruling, Azerbaijan must take all measures at its disposal to ensure unimpeded movement of persons, vehicles and cargo along the Lachin Corridor in both directions, which it keeps blockaded for more than 100 days.
In his letter to the Parliament, the Minister underlines that the International Court rulings are legally binding. Therefore, the Netherlands has publicly called on the Azerbaijani authorities to comply with the ruling.

Blinken believes there is a “moment of opportunity” for Armenia and Azerbaijan to reach a peace agreement

“I do not want to exaggerate it, but I think there is an opportunity to actually bring a peace agreement to fruition. I have had Prime Minister Pashinyan and President Aliyev for a meeting in Munich. I had the Foreign Ministers here in Washington, and I expect them to come back. We worked on a text to see if we can help them reach an agreement. And it’s not something that we are imposing on Armenia or answering a strong desire expressed by Armenia,” Secretary Blinken said.
Commenting on the blockade of the Lachin corridor, the Secretary said “I’m pressing on Azerbaijan, including as recently as this week, to reopen that road.”
“But I do think that there is a moment of opportunity to reach a peace agreement that would profoundly be in the interests of the people of Armenia, as well as Azerbaijan,” he said, commenting on Washington’s efforts to normalize relations between Baku and Yerevan.

No negotiations on Azerbaijani checkpoints in Lachin corridor, Armenian FM says

There are no negotiations on installing an Azerbaijani checkpoint in the Lachin corridor, Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan said during a Q&A session at the National Assembly.
“Armenia considers that the negotiations on Lachin corridor and its regime have long been completed, and the regulations have been enshrined in the trilateral statement on November 9, 2020,” he said.
The Foreign Minister reminded that under the statement, the Lachin corridor remains under the control of the Russian peacekeeping troops and Azerbaijan guarantees safe movement of citizens, vehicles and cargo in both directions along the corridor.
According to the Foreign Minister, it is a recorded agreement, and Armenia should already have doubts about the expediency of further negotiations.
“What’s the sense of reaching agreements, if they are going to be breached at some point?” Ararta Mirzoyan said.

Armenian FM does not rule out trilateral meeting with Russian and Azerbaijani counterparts

“The topic was discussed with Minister Lavrov. Such a meeting was supposed to take place in Moscow on December 22 of last year, but we postponed it because the Lachin Corridor was illegally blocked by Azerbaijan,” FM Mirzoyan said during a Q&A session at the National Assembly.
“Currently, the negotiations are taking place remotely as we are exchanging proposals on the draft peace treaty. But I believe that face-to-face meetings and discussions should begin at some stage. The topic as discussed in Moscow, and there is an opportunity for such a meeting in the future,” he noted.
The Armenian Foreign Minister also called the meeting with Lavrov on March 20 in Moscow “sincere and constructive.”

EU mission a tool to reinforce the peace process – Armenian FM

“There are interpretations claiming that the Armenian side is resorting to provocations hiding behind the back of the mission. First, the Armenian side does not resort to provocations at all. Second, for Armenia the EU mission is solely a tool that should reinforce the peace process, stability in the region, as well as assess the situation on the ground and report it to EU partners,” he said.

The EUMA was formally established by a Council Decision on 23 January 2023.

What is being demolished and repaired on the 80-year-old "Haghtanak" bridge?

The "Victory" bridge, built by German prisoners in the 1940s, is strong and earthquake-resistant, but over the years, the structural elements have deteriorated and worn out, especially the sidewalks and side steps.
The repair of the bridge started in February. After starting the works, the builders found out that in addition to the planned cosmetic repairs, some parts of the bridge need to be thoroughly strengthened.
For several days, the construction works are going on mainly in the direction of the bridge, from Mashtots Avenue to Atenki Street, going to Hrazdan Stadium. The builders promise that they will open the traffic lane as soon as they finish dismantling the curbs and installing new ones. And the traffic lane in the other direction is already open.
Until the construction works are finished, the bridge's passengers are subjected to various tests. the existing traffic lane on the sidewalk serves not only construction equipment, but also pedestrians. The beginnings of Isakov and Mashtots avenues, which are already heavily trafficked, were additionally overloaded.
The specialist also has positive considerations. in recent years, according to him, the city authorities are more consistent, the parts of the streets that are being repaired are furnished more correctly. In the case of the "Haghtanak" bridge, the construction area is equipped with appropriate signs, says the specialist and emphasizes that the problem is in the culture of organizing the works and deadlines.
The company carrying out the repair of "Haghtanak" bridge has good news. the construction will be completed earlier than planned, in the middle of summer instead of the end of autumn. After the repair, the bridge will also have new lighting, the railings will be cleaned and painted. The builders assure that if the people of Yerevan have a little patience, they can forget about the inconveniences caused by the renovation of the 80-year-old historical structure with seven arches, 200 meters long, 25 meters wide, 34 meters high and considered one of the calling cards of the capital for a long time.

RA Minister of Health spoke at the "Healthy Society" international conference

"The role of women in all spheres of life is huge, and the health sector is naturally not an exception," Health Minister Anahit Avanesyan said in his speech, emphasizing that the state should do everything to ease women's worries, as well as create all the opportunities for women's self-development and self-expression.

Other female leaders of the CIS countries also spoke at the international forum highlighting the role of women.

Training sessions: participation will be short, payment based on salary

"The draft proposes that, when engaging an employee for a period of up to 30 days, the employer should pay at least the positive difference between the employee's basic salary and the monetary security calculated as a serviceman for each working day. For example, if an employee's salary is 200,000 drams, the latter participates in training sessions, and in return, as compensation, receives 80,000 drams from the Ministry of Defense, then the employer is obliged to pay the remaining part, at least 120,000 drams.
The minister clarifies that the employer does not have the obligation to pay wages to the employee who participates in the training sessions. It is only established that the workplace and the position are preserved. At this moment, the official rate for the assigned military position is calculated for the citizen.
The proposed regulation will make it possible to maintain the salary of the training camp participants. The Prime Minister reminds that the three-month period has been reduced to 25 days.
"At the same time, we have a regulation that when implementing the plan for training sessions, we should not invite more than a certain percentage of employees from the same institution to a training session, so that there is no burden on the institutions."
According to the decision of the government, from April 15 to June 15 of this year, training camps of reservists will be held. The reservists of the first and second ranks of the first group of reservists will be involved in them. Up to 953 citizens will participate in training sessions. 476 of them will be junior non-commissioned officers and privates, 25 will be senior non-commissioned officers, and 452 will be officer reservists. Reservists with motor rifle, rocket artillery, air defense, communications, reconnaissance, engineering, and technical specialties will participate in this 25-day gathering.
The 25-day gatherings in Armenia started this spring. In the first stage, according to the decision of the government, more than 3 thousand citizens were involved in the gatherings. The 25-day muster will be mandatory for all reservists between the ages of 20 and 55. Moreover, the citizen himself will choose what time of the year he can devote to it. This was announced by the Minister of Defense in October last year.
"We refuse the three-month gatherings. In fact, 21 days are the main service, 25 are for providing the organizational one. A citizen spends 7 days in training, 14 days in combat duty. The upcoming gatherings will be 25 days long. We refuse the three-month meetings. But it is mandatory for all RA citizens."
The Executive Committee believes that this is one of the important steps to have a professional army.

2023.03.23 23:13 latosve11 Lite frågor till er som ska fasta i en månad! (seriös)

Ramadan Mubarak!
Hej alla muslimer!
Jag är själv svensk ateist och skriver det här helt utan fördomar och nedsättande ton utan allt som följer är genuina frågor och funderingar.
  1. Jag jobbar på ett stort industriföretag och ihop med flera praktiserande (de ber under arbetstid) muslimer men inga av dem fastar pga "vårat jobb är fysiskt och då behövekan man inte fasta" Är det verkligen okej? Jag själv har kört mycket keto periodisk fasta och har verkligen inga problem med att lösa samma jobb som de skulle utföra.
  2. Finns det generellt påtryckningar från Imamer eller andra inflytelserika inom tro eller samhälle att man ska fasta? (eller är det alltid enbart av eget val?)
  3. Jag har också märkt att det blir färre folk ute vid "rökrutan" under fastemånaden. Får man inte röka heller? (gäller det även snus?)
  4. Om det fanns en sak som du ville att alla svenskar skulle veta/ha hänsyn till/tänka på/etc under den här månaden vad skulle det vara då?
Slutligen skulle jag vilja önska alla lycka till och att jag gärna hänger med på en fet eid al-fitr när ni är klara om, en månad!

Do you remember how President Trump visited Saudi Arabia back in May of 2017? Do you remember how warmly he was greeted by King Salman? I do. It was a spectacle. Why was he greeted so welcomingly? After all, President Obama's reception was... shall we say, less than grand. Do you remember how after Trump's visit, Saudi Arabia started becoming more open in their policies? Women can drive there now. Did you notice how the Syrian rebellion became quiet? Did you notice how quickly ISIS was crushed after the visit? Why did Saudi Arabia suddenly want to get their oil companies listed on the NYSE? What could have caused this? To answer this, we have to look a little further back. Back to around 2010. It all goes back to fracking. You see, the Kindom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has always relied heavily on its vast petrol reserves for wealth and prosperity. And they were ruthless. OPEC. The cartel of gasoline. You can't count the number of times throughout history that OPEC used its power to crush governments, manipulate prices, control supplies, and fund activities. If there ever was a international group of bullies, OPEC was it. And at the head of this organization was the mighty KSA. Then came the fracking boom. Suddenly, the world was no longer at the mercy of OPEC. This made them nervous. So, they did what they always do. They pumped out more petroleum, driving the price of gas to lowest in decades. What was their objective? To bankrupt these fracking businesses. KSA is rich. Very rich. They figured, we'll just drive gas prices unbelievably low and take the loss until all these fracking business startups crumble. Do you remember how cheap gas got between 2013-2016? It was ridiculous, wasn't it? But what they didn't count on was just how cheap fracking had become. So many of these business didn't go bankrupt. So they took another step. To convince the world that fracking was bad for the environment. So they lobbied and supplied funds to the Democratic party. Why? Because the leftist are usually the ones who support ANY and ALL environmental regulations. Do you remember all the legal battles that fracking had to go through? Hell, it's still illegal in most blue states. Do you now understand why the Saudis donated so much money to the Clinton campaign? She was HEAVILY favored to win and if she did, you can bet your ass that illegalizing fracking would have been on the top of her list, returning us to dependence on arab oil. But... this didn't work either. Fracking continued. And then, a shitstorm of reality hit them hard. You see, KSA had vastly underestimated the amount of total shale reserves in North America. They had no idea that so much of this stuff exists. They thought maybe they could ride it out if the reserves would dry up in a decade or so. But nope. We have enough shale to supply us for at least 50 years. Hmmm... big problem. So, if you're King Salman, what do you do? Well, there's only one thing you can do. Give up the reliance on oil production and try to use existing wealth to stay wealthy. To modernize its trade to include more than just exports of oil. They would need to build an entire industrial country from scratch. To do that, he needed the help of the USA. And that's where President Trump comes in. You see, the May 2017 meeting between Trump and King Salman (and his son Mohammad), was not just another meeting. It was a business meeting. King Salman asked Trump for help. Trump was more than willing to give it (like listing the oil companies on the NYSE) but his help would come with a price. Liberalization and the stop of illegal funding. No more contributions to American politics. No more supplying funds to terrorists or splinter groups. King Salman took the deal. All of a sudden, women were allowed to drive. ISIS was retreating. Syrian rebels suddenly ran out of ammunition. Yay. All good up to this point. Now comes the bad Not all the royalties in KSA are into this. They don't like losing the power they once had. What's worse, they don't want to become liberal. They now start resenting King Salmon. They start plotting against him. At the forefront of this movement is none other than the previous Deputy Crown Prince, Muqrin, and his son, Mansour (the man killed in the helicopter crash of 11/5/17). October 1, 2017. The top floors of Mandalay Bay isn't Mandalay Bay, but is Four Seasons, owned by billionaire Talal. Who was occupying that whole floor that night? I can't remember where, but I heard that the whole floor was reserved for that week. Now, no one would do that unless they were Saudi royalty. We don't know for sure, but my guess is Crown Prince Mohammad. We know it wasn't King Salman, because he was in Russia at the time. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/05/saudi-russia-visit-putin-oil-middle-east The plan is to take out the crown prince. Then kill King Salman. With the King and the Crown Prince dead, who is next in line? Yup. The former deputy crown prince, Muqrin. So, posing as terrorists who wanted to buy the guns for some terrorist attack, they dupe the CIA or FBI to supply the guns to the death squad. Their real plan is to climb the stairs right after the deal and kill the VIP in the floors above them. This is why the weapons cashe was located on the 32nd floor. They would only have to climb a few stairs or take the elevator up a little to start the killing. Now, here's what happened that night: With the post from kneejerk55, I have modified the events of the night. I think it fits much better Paddock is the contact man to supply the guns. He meets a couple of assassins ahead of time (remember, the shooting starts at 10:05). At this point, Paddock is thinking this is a gun deal. Only a few magazines are loaded. He merely wants to show the customers how to load the chamber etc... What he doesn't know is that the advance team was sent to secure the floor. That all but one entry point to the floor would be barricaded (crucial since the reason Campos becomes suspicious of the blocked doors is what ultimately leads him to investigate) The reason for the barricade is that once the assault starts, the assassins want to make sure to impede the authorities as much as possible from reaching the top floors. CIA/FBI (or Trump's own intelligence) got wind of the assassination that was about to take place. Immediate action is taken to round up the assassins. Remember, we're talking about an army of assassins here. You can't kill a Crown Prince who's protected by 30 armed bodyguards by pulling a Jack Ruby. I estimate at least 20 assassins in total. What the assassins didn't know was that the prince had disguised himself as a regular dude to enjoy the nightlife in Vegas. (Saudi princes have been known to do this) He had slipped away from the Mandalay and was at the Tropicana playing some cards. As soon as the FBI (or some other agency) learned of the assassination plot, they stormed the Tropicana and extracted the prince. The video can be seen here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVHmshtmDqo They lead him out of the casino and escort him to the nearest helipad to be picked up. BUT, on the way, they encounter some resistance from a few assassins. Hence the firefight at the airport. Eventually, he makes it to the chopper and is whisked away. This explains the flight radar reports you see all over the net. Meanwhile, the FBI has gathered up as many of the assassins as they can. A few are armed with sidearms. They don't have rifles yet because the rendezvous with Paddock hasn't occurred yet. Hence the random firefights at various casinos that night. A few are killed. Hence the Laura Loomer videos of covered up dead people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oxAZIpSUuM The assassins already in Paddock's room gets a call. They are told that the Prince is not in his suite above. That he's being escorted out of the Tropicana. They start panicking. If they get caught in this plot to assassinate the crown prince, not only are they dead, but their employer is dead as well. They come up with a plan. They will kill Paddock and start firing on the crowd below. They're gonna make him a crazy lone gunman. So they kill Paddock. They break a window. They pick up a rifle and start firing at the crowd below. After a couple of mags, they realize that the other mags aren't loaded! Holy fuck. They start reloading as fast as possible. This is why the average time between bursts of fire is over 40 seconds. One of them gets an idea. Let me go to the other room and break that window and shoot at the fuel tanks at a nearby airport. This will draw the police away from the Mandalay and they can escape. So he goes and attempts just that. Unfortunately, the tanks do not blow up. By this time, Jesus Campos is knocking on the door. So they just unload on him. This is why there are (supposedly) 200 shots through the door. Campos escapes a lethal shot and calls in security. Now the assassins are getting nervous. They realize that someone in the hotel knows that someone is firing. They fire as much as they can. They are thinking as soon as this barrage is done, we run. But the swat team starts knocking on the door. Fuck. The assassins realize they're screwed. So the first one shoots himself. (This is the first of the single shots you hear at the end). The second assassin isn't so sure. He doesn't want to die. So after 10 seconds of courage gathering, he shoots himself as well. The SWAT team bursts in and finds 3 bodies. They start asking questions. But because the FBI is already there (remember, they extracted the prince) they take over. They quickly assess the situation. They realize the implications. They remove the 2 assassins bodies, take a picture of Paddock lying there, and release it to 4chan to solidify their narrative. Paddock is made the patsy. Why? Because if a failed Saudi assassination attempt was responsible for the deaths, if the FBI/CIA had supplied the guns that killed 58 innocent people (not counting Paddock since he's an asset), then two things would happen. One, we would demand that we go to war with Saudi Arabia. And two, which ever organization that Paddock worked for would be utterly dismantled. Wew lads, I know. Quite a story. Now, let's fast forward to one month later. We know a missile was intercepted by the Saudi military on November 3 or 4th. This was probably the final effort by the anti King Salman group. This was their last ditch effort to kill him. OR, it was staged to give King Salman the excuse to round everyone up in retaliation of the assassination attempt. We know that MASSIVE raids and the rounding of Saudi princes took place on the 5th. I will guarantee you that all these people are anti Salman/Mohammad. And who was just killed? Yes. The son of Muqrin, Mansour. Mansour's death was retaliation. I have no doubt of it. He was executed. Ok, now that this has happened, what's next? Well, my guess will be that we will learn all of the funding that has been coming out of Saudi Arabia for the past decade. It will expose their connections to the DNC. We will learn that they have been at the root of all the turmoil in the Middle East. Then, they'll all be executed.

2023.03.23 19:41 tears-of-aphrodite Looking for an Iranian movie! Please read description.

Ok so I watched this movie a few years ago on Al-Manar, Hezbollah's TV channel in Lebanon. I don't remember a ton of details but basically there was a group of men who were wearing all white (maybe?l biking around on these large heavy motorcycles. I don't remember the plot exactly but I believe they were a group of men who had died and drove around picking up other dead people or their "souls". Lmao. Does anyone know it??
