Hungary rejects plan to ban migrant resettlements

Hungary rejects plan to ban migrant resettlements


Hungary’s parliament on Tuesday narrowly rejected a plan by Prime Minister Viktor Orban to ban the resettlement of migrants in the country, a setback for the maverick leader that could weaken him in his fight against EU migration policies.

The proposed constitutional amendment won 131 votes in the 199-seat parliament, just short of the necessary two-thirds majority of 133. Opposition parties, including the far-right Jobbik, had boycotted the vote.

Orban had said the amendment was needed to honour an October referendum, in which more than 3 million Hungarians, an overwhelming majority of those who voted, rejected EU migrant quotas.

He said that even though the referendum was not legally binding because of low turnout, it gave him a strong political mandate to reject the imposition by Brussels of quotas stipulating how many migrants Hungary must accept.

Orban’s determination to keep out migrants has angered his fellow leaders and complicated their task as the EU struggles to cope with an influx of about 1.4 million people since the start of 2015, many fleeing conflicts like the war in Syria.

Last year Hungary was the key entry point into the EU’s border-free Schengen zone until Orban erected a razor-wire border fence to stop the flow.

“This vote today is a temporary fiasco (for Orban), similarly to the referendum which was invalid,” said Robert Laszlo, a political analyst at thinktank Political Capital.

Laszlo said at home, the failure of the amendment was unlikely to weaken Orban, whose Fidesz party has a strong lead in opinion polls ahead of 2018 elections.

“In Brussels, he will not be able to sell this as a success, there his positions will weaken,” he added.


Fear for the future among New York’s Muslims on eve of election

Fear for the future among New York’s Muslims on eve of election


A day before Americans vote in one of the most divisive presidential elections in decades, there is a palpable sense of tension among the citizens of Ozone Park, a quiet, residential neighbourhood in Queens, New York.

People here have a reason to be more apprehensive than most: the area is home to a sizeable Muslim community, mostly made up of immigrants from Bangladesh who moved here around the turn of the new millennium. Halal supermarkets and South Asian restaurants sit next to McDonalds and Dunkin’ Donuts along the neighbourhood’s main thoroughfare. Seven mosques serve the community’s roughly 30,000 inhabitants.

But many fear what the future may hold for them under a Donald Trump presidency should the Republican candidate emerge victorious at the polls. In the course of the months-long campaign, Trump notoriously called on a ban on Muslims entering the country, suggestedAmerican Muslims are helping to shelter terrorists and said he wants to deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

“I’m scared of him to be honest. The way he talks about people really frightens me. If you ask 10 people in the street they’ll tell you the same thing. People here are scared of Donald Trump,” says 24-year-old grocery store employee Lincoln Alam, who says he’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

“But that’s normal – when someone threatens your freedom, you don’t like it.”

‘People are scared’

Some would argue that whether Trump wins or not, the often ugly rhetoric of his campaign has already left a mark on the country — and in Ozone Park, in particular.

In August, local imam Alauddin Akonjee and his assistant Thara Miah were gunned down on the streets in an execution-style killing.

Though police and prosecutors have given no official motive for the killings, for which a 36-year-old man from Brooklyn is facing charges, some in the community immediately linked the murders to Trump and the perceived increase in Islamophobia they say his comments have propagated.

On his way to prayers at the Al-Furqan Jame Masjid mosque, the same mosque where Akonjee and Miah worked and just two blocks away from where they were murdered, 56-year-old Bazlur Rahman says the election has been “extremely tough” for the neighbourhood’s Muslim population.

“Everyone is very concerned about this election, everyone is talking about it,” he says. “People think Trump is targeting Muslims. They are scared.”

Unsurprisingly, he thinks the vast majority of the area’s Muslims will vote for Clinton on election day.

“They will feel more safe if she wins,” he says, adding: “This country is for everybody. You can’t separate people because they are of a different race or religion.”

Not everyone is as outspoken about their views on the vote. In the uniquely charged climate of this election, there is the sense that, perhaps, some are reluctant to add fuel to the fire.

“No comment,” says 48-year-old Mohammed Uddin, who moved to the US from Bangladesh in 1991, when asked about his views on Trump.

Though he does divulge that he will be voting for Clinton, he believes that “both candidates are well-qualified” and that there are “good and bad things about both”.

If Trump does win, Uddin says, it is unlikely he’ll go through with his ban on Muslim immigrants, something the candidate himself has waveredon during the run-up to election day. “It’s against the constitution,” he says. “His running mate even said so during the debate.” Then he adds with a nervous laugh: “But if things do get bad I can always go back to Bangladesh.”

‘A nation of immigrants’

A block away, Misba Abdin, the president the local Bangladeshi American Community Development & Youth Services organisation, is helping to host a litter-picking event with children from the neighbourhood. He is even more coy when it comes to his voting intentions.

“I believe in right and in good people, but I want to keep it to myself who I’m going to vote for,” he says. Next to him, a passing friend or colleague interjects. “He’s voting for Trump!” he says. It’s not clear if he is joking and Abdin gives nothing away.

“Voting is something that you do in a dark room by yourself,” he says. “I definitely don’t like Trump, but I don’t really like Hillary either. There are good and bad things about both.”

“It’s all just politics,” he says. “But Trump said specifically that he was talking only about radical Muslims and I’m against that, too.”

He does want to remind Trump, however, that his own ascendants came to the USA from a faraway land to enjoy the freedoms the country offers.

“This is a nation of immigrants,” he says. “Trump is an immigrant too even if he was born here. He says this is the land of the free, but if there is freedom for everyone that has to include immigrants, too.”

our language verse:“Our language is a treasure.” This spiritual treasure, this bill defines mental best a nation, because it is born of deep national being. Hence the value of the verse: “the deep shadows.” At the same time, our being stuck in the historic rooted ancestral land. Hence the theme of the poem is, in fact, profound identity of the poet, people and homeland. The value of poetry is a definition lyrical Romanian language, which is based on the image of a string of gems image suggesting the value of words, beauty, strength, brilliance lights hidden meanings in words: “A string of stone; rare / estates răvărsată” .

Language contains (as a chalice of national consciousness) fire Romanian spirit: “Our language is fire, burning / into one nation, no warning / awaked out of his sleep of death, / Like the brave man of the story”.Language , like poetry, is a synthesis of national spirit: “our language is pure music, / Doina vibrating with passion” because Doina and longing are specific to the Romanian people.Metaphor “swarm of lightning” highly suggestive language function to play national and social ideals, aspiration to heaven, to God: “Roi lightning, striking / dark clouds and blue skies.”

Language is the national existence, in which the poet is part: “Our language is the language pans, / When the winds blow in summer / Uttered / With sweat sanctified ‘have land.” It is the language of facts, which ensures the existence .Permanent sacrifice, the bravery, work, her ancestors, have reached national destiny, sanctified with the blood and sweat of the country the earth, because in the minds of the Romanian people “consecrates the man.”

This profound identity of the poet, the people and the country we find and metaphors in verse: “Our language and leaf green / Sbuciumul the woods forever / Dniester Gentle-ripples / evening stars candlesticks.”The metaphor symbol “green leaf“conveys the spiritual life of the Romanian people and its value is resumed metonymy: ” Sbuciumul the woods forever, “ the symbol bank, because the water suggests knowledge, spiritual life uninterrupted Romanian people, sedimented in language as Nistru waters hiding in the deep light evening stars .

In Romanian gathered, over time, jewels priceless wisdom of our nation: “Our language and ancient chronicles / Stories from the days / And cetindu them shudder – / Te ‘n creeps deep and trembling” . the language is sedimented national history as a chronic, as it suggests the metaphor of “ancient chronicles”,because language is a living book that determines our inner life, national spirit they discover in it the national consciousness: “se-nfioarâ and “tremble”.

Romanian language is sacred, because in it is held for centuries religious worship: “Our language / Raise glory ‘heaven, / Let spue’ n patron et-home / eternal truth.” In it I learned the truth about God , so her words are words of celebration holy soul, as when a patron, because through it we learn the way to heaven the soul. in our language are spoken the words of God in the holy books, which elevates and ennobles the soul, shaping its sensitivity and beauty: “Our language language of holy / Language of ancient struggles / What a cry and a sing / In their ancestral peasants “.

Romanian language have grown continuously. Language is like a fountain of our national consciousness. Therefore, as a fountain to be cleaned, so it is cultivated and enriched language:“Wipe greasy, mold / Al oblivion ‘n groaning.”

Language is the wealth of the Romanian soul, which can overflow“a new torrent of words.” Language is a divine gift whose streams never runs dry.

Poetry Our language can be interpreted as a programmatic poetry (ars poetical), in which the poet expresses his conception of the poet and poetry. Reading it carefully, we can draw the following meanings of the concepts of poet and poetry:

The poet is a national conscience, and poetry is an emanation of this consciousness as we find suggested in the lyrics: “Our language and leaf green / Sbuciumul the woods forever / Dniester Gentle-ripples / evening stars candlesticks”.the role of the poet and poetry is to give brilliance, beauty, vitality language nation, to awaken the powers of creative giving new value words, to grind out like diamonds:“Gather the shining stone, / What light from the sun – / and -I have răvărsare / a new torrent of words “.

Limba noastră-i o comoară
În adâncuri înfundată
Un şirag de piatră rară
Pe moşie revărsată.

Limba noastră-i foc ce arde
Într-un neam, ce fără veste
S-a trezit din somn de moarte
Ca viteazul din poveste.

Limba noastră-i numai cântec,
Doina dorurilor noastre,
Roi de fulgere, ce spintec
Nouri negri, zări albastre.

Limba noastră-i graiul pâinii,
Când de vânt se mişcă vara;
In rostirea ei bătrânii
Cu sudori sfinţit-au ţara.

Limba noastră-i frunză verde,
Zbuciumul din codrii veşnici,
Nistrul lin, ce-n valuri pierde
Ai luceferilor sfeşnici.

Nu veţi plânge-atunci amarnic,
Că vi-i limba prea săracă,
Şi-ţi vedea, cât îi de darnic
Graiul ţării noastre dragă.

Limba noastră-i vechi izvoade.
Povestiri din alte vremuri;
Şi citindu-le ‘nşirate, –
Te-nfiori adânc şi tremuri.

Limba noastră îi aleasă
Să ridice slava-n ceruri,
Să ne spiue-n hram şi-acasă
Veşnicele adevăruri.

Limba noastra-i limbă sfânta,
Limba vechilor cazanii,
Care o plâng şi care o cântă
Pe la vatra lor ţăranii.

Înviaţi-vă dar graiul,
Ruginit de multă vreme,
Stergeţi slinul, mucegaiul
Al uitării ‘n care geme.

Strângeţi piatra lucitoare
Ce din soare se aprinde –
Şi-ţi avea în revărsare
Un potop nou de cuvinte.

Răsări-vă o comoară
În adâncuri înfundată,
Un şirag de piatră rară
Pe moşie revărsată.

TRUMP, NOUL PRESEDINTE AMERICAN:  1) În toată istoria de 250 de ani a SUA, cu excepția celui de al doilea război mondial (pe timp de război nu se fac alegeri și Roosevelt a făcut trei mandate și puțin din al patrulea), nici un partid nu a făcut mai mult de două mandate consecutive. 


Despre alegerile din SUA, un punct de vedere interesant primit pe e-mail de la un prieten competent, de profesie istoric:
„Eu cred că va fi Trump președinte din următoarele motive:

1) În toată istoria de 250 de ani a SUA, cu excepția celui de al doilea război mondial (pe timp de război nu se fac alegeri și Roosevelt a făcut trei mandate și puțin din al patrulea), nici un partid nu a făcut mai mult de două mandate consecutive. Asta nu este întâmplător. Economia SUA este împărțită în două părți aproximativ egale. O jumătate este sub influență republicană și cealaltă, sub influență democrată. Fiecare partid aflat la putere (ca și la noi) acordă toate comenzile și lucrările de toate felurile economiei din zona proprie de influență, iar ceilalți „fac foame” în acest timp, iar în ultima parte a celui de al doilea mandat, multe societăți fac credite ca să supraviețuiască austerității. Dacă acuma ar rămâne democrații la putere, mulți analiști economici prognozează că o mare parte din jumătatea republicană a economiei ar colapsa și SUA ar intra în criză.

2) În SUA, în servicii și la Pentagon, s-a ridicat o puternică grupare care dorește să scoată țara de sub controlul evreiesc. Deviza lor ”America first!” semnifică nevoia de a se promova întâi interesele americane și după aceea pe cele ale Israel și ale Comunității Mondiale Evreiești. Trump a folosit și el în campanie lozinca lor și a precizat explicit că el este împotriva globalizării (încă din luna iulie, când a rostit discursul de acceptare a investiturii republicane). Or, globalizarea este modalitatea de răspândire a influenței evreiești în SUA și în zona lor de influență, care s-a redus drastic. Apoi, Trump a declarat că războaiele SUA în Orientul Mijlociu au fost „mari greșeli”, ori ele au fost opera intereselor evreiești…

3) Există o mare nemulțumire în țară față de faptul că imaginea SUA în lume s-a degradat datorită promovării intereselor agresive evreiești și se dorește o schimbare. Regimurile evreiești au încurajat emigrația hispanică și a altora în SUA, ceea ce a bulversat societatea americană. State importante din zona SUA de influență au întors spatele și s-au orientat către Asia. Între acestea și state importante (Brazilia și Republica Sud-Africană sunt în BRICS, Turcia întoarce și ea spatele Occidentului etc.).

Este foarte important și pentru noi, din multe puncte de vedere, pe care nu le mai înșir acuma, dar observ ceva. În ultimul an, pe site-ul DNA au fost și mai sunt afișate multe dosare ai căror învinuiți au nume evreiești, ceea ce până anul trecut nu s-a întâmplat!? Or, poliția politică este condusă în primul rând de consilierii FBI de la SRI și de la DNA, într-o măsură mult mai mică de către șefii români ai binomului. Dosarele acelea nu se puteau deschide și promova fără aprobarea consilierilor americani, care conduc cu maximă autoritate.

Dacă vine Trump și-și respectă programul electoral (care poate fi, de fapt, o altă linie politică emanată de forțele sistemului, iar Trump doar purtătorul de cuvânt), va fi o reformă cu caracter revoluționar pentru SUA. Din păcate, nu văd nimic bun pentru noi, dacă rămânem sub nemți și francezi și dispare statul național unitar. Decât așa, mult mai bine sub ruși!”

Secretele celor 30 de triburi din Dacia: ce ascundeau războaiele dintre buri şi romani, cine au fost dacii liberi şi ce nume ciudate aveau strămoşii noştri


Carpii (carpodacii) au fost unul din cele mai mari şi importante triburi dacice. Carpii au locuit teritoriul de la la est de Carpaţi până la Nistru. „Organizaţi într-o puternică uniune tribală, carpii au dominat, din punct de vedere economic, politic şi militar, atât unele triburi de origine dacică (dacii liberi din Muntenia), cât şi populaţiile “barbare” pătrunse în zona extracarpatică a României, din rândul cărora amintim pe sarmaţi. După înfrângerea costobocilor de către romani şi asdingi (anii 170-172) carpii au fost nu numai cei mai puternici dintre dacii liberi, ci şi cei mai periculoşi duşmani ai Imperiului roman la Dunărea de Jos. Ei au atacat în repetate rânduri imperiul fie singuri, fie în alianţă cu sarmaţii, goţii şi alte seminţii”, informează
