Herdenking Kristallnacht


Zondag 9 november 2008
19.30 – 20.30 uur
Stadhuis Amsterdam (hoek Amstel, Zwanenburgwal)
Sprekers: Ed van Thijn (oud-burgemeester van Amsterdam) e.a.

Sinds 1992 organiseert de stichting Nederland Bekent Kleur de Kristallnacht-herdenking in Amsterdam.
De Kristallnacht was een gewelddadige aanval tegen Duitse joden in de nacht van 9 november 1938, nu 70 jaar geleden.

Centraal bij de herdenking dit jaar op 9 november staat de link tussen verleden en heden.
Met als belangrijke les om niet weg te kijken, maar stelling te nemen.
De Raad van Europa waarschuwt dat Nederland aan de top staat in Europa wat betreft de groeiende islamofobie.
En ook is er nog steeds sprake van antisemitisme in ons land.
Nederland is de laatste tijd gedegradeerd van ambassadeur van tolerantie, tot land van intolerantie

Joe the Plumber


The real Joe the Plumber has nothing to do with Joe Wurzelbacher who debated with Obama.

According to Tony Herrera, of the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 50 in
Toledo, Ohio, Mr Wurzelbacher cannot practise in Toledo without a licence –
although he can work for someone with a master’s licence or in outlying areas
that do not require a licence.
According to local court records, Mr Wurzelbacher also owes the state of Ohio $1,182.98 in personal income tax.

McCain, what’s the next trick?

We make ‘em tougher here in China…


Jacobesis proposes to use militairy training at college to instill a sense of discipline in students.

I say:
seen this, done that…during my teenage time at school we had some marching drills and bajonet-fighting with bamboo-sticks, a perfect way to create war-childs.
I would say yes to teaching self-defense at a young age, but militairy drill is going much too far, it is a way to create fighting robots.

Arie & Dragons


Arie says:

Somehow I felt that the international healing magick should be done with
the aid of Dragons.

Wikipedia says:

The origin of Chinese dragon is not certain, but many scholars agree that
it originated from totems of different tribes in China .

Chinese dragons are strongly associated with water in popular belief.
They are believed to be the rulers of moving bodies of water, such as
waterfalls, rivers, or seas.

At the end of his reign, the first legendary Emperor Huang Di was
said to have been immortalized into a dragon that resembled his emblem, and
ascended to Heaven. Since the Chinese consider Huang Di as their ancestor, they
sometimes refer to themselves as “the descendants of the dragon”. This legend
also contributed towards the use of the Chinese dragon as a symbol of imperial power.

The four Dragon Kings (龍王; pinyin: Lóng Wáng) are, in Chinese mythology, the divine rulers of the four seas (each sea corresponds to one of the cardinal directions)

Comment:
Connecting with the Dragon Kings means connecting with elementary powers.
Proceed with caution!
