Bolnavii mor în spitale, voi furați în continuare! Vă vrem la răcoare!
Acei ce-au judecat mafioții,
S-au pensionat, vai ce minune!
Așa-i când decidenții sunt hoții,
Si guvernanții îs putreziciune.
Distribuie și implică-te pentru că răul triumfă atunci când oamenii buni nu fac nimic!

Everliving Art: Watch “La Pietà: Michelangelo Buonarroti, San Pietro Basilica, Vatican, Roma” on YouTube


From Wikipedia: The Pietà (Italian pronunciation: [pjeˈta]) is a subject in Christian art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus, most often found in sculpture. As such, it is a particular form of the Lamentation of Christ, a scene from the Passion of Christ found in cycles of the Life of Christ. When Christ and the Virgin are surrounded by other figures from the New Testament, the subject is strictly called a Lamentation in English, although Pietà is often used for this as well, and is the normal term in Italian. The Pietà is a work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. Wikipedia

Today’s Birthday: Catharine Beecher (1800)


Today’s Birthday:
Catharine Beecher (1800)

Beecher was an American lecturer, author, and advocate for women’s education. The sister of abolitionist author Harriet Beecher Stowe, she popularized a conservative movement to rescue women from frivolous “feminine” pursuits—by elevating and entrenching women’s role in the domestic sphere. Her ideal woman was one who presided over an intelligent, cultured, well-managed household. In 1823, she founded the Hartford Female Seminary to train women to be teachers. What social change did she oppose? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:
The Dawson’s Field Hijackings (1970)

In 1970, Palestinian terrorists attempted to hijack five airplanes—most New York-bound flights that had originated in Europe or Israel—and rerouted three to Dawson’s Field, a remote desert airstrip in Jordan. The Jordanian king responded quickly, ordering strikes on Palestinian targets. All of the hostages were eventually released. Only one person died in the hijackings—a terrorist who was shot on board one of the planes that did not make it to Jordan. What happened to the rest of the hijackers?

Article of the Day:
Maple Syrup Urine Disease

Branched chain ketoaciduria, or maple syrup urine disease (MSUD), is a metabolic disorder in which an enzyme deficiency allows branched-chain amino acids to build up in the blood and urine. Often diagnosed in infancy, the condition gets its name from the distinctive sweet odor—similar to that of maple syrup or burnt caramel—of the sufferer’s urine. If left untreated, MSUD can cause severe brain damage or death. Why is the disease more prevalent in children of Amish and Mennonite descent?

France 24 :  Mother of jihadist (and son)faces trial in Paris for ‘financing terrorism’


Mother of jihadist faces trial in Paris for ‘financing terrorism’

A French woman whose radicalised son fought in Syria where he allegedly died as a jihadist is standing trial on Tuesday accused of financing terrorism.

http://www.france24.com/en/20170905-france-mother-jihadist-faces-trial-paris-financing-terrorism

Appearing before the Paris Criminal Court on Tuesday, Nathalie Haddadi and her younger son both face charges of aiding and financing terrorism, and if convicted could face up to 10 years in prison. A second man, a friend of Haddadi’s deceased son, is also on trial.

It’s an unusual move for a state prosecutor who is seeking criminal action against the family members of a man with suspected links to terrorism.

In her several interviews with the French press, Haddadi has always insisted that while she sent her 21 year-old son, Abbes Bounaga, money she had no idea how it would be spent and has denied she financed jihadists. In an interview with Le Parisien newspaper yesterday, the 42-year-old mother said that when her son called asking for money, she obliged him, sending €5,500 of which €850 was spent on airline tickets to Algeria and Malaysia.

Speaking from outside the courtroom on Tuesday, France 24’s Chris Moore said that the payment made by Haddadi is believed to relate to a time when her son was in Malaysia and not in Iraq or Syria.

“Apparently [he] suffered from a road accident, was beaten up, found himself in hospital and called home asking for money. Several weeks later he made a phone call where he literally told his mother that he loved God more than he loved her.”

Moore said that during another phone call shortly after that he was presumably referring to the so-called Islamic State group when he told Haddadi, “None of this is what I wanted or expected”.

In an interview with television broadcaster France 3, Haddadi said that she only wanted to help her son “as any mother would have done”, so he would have enough money to eat and take care of himself.

In August 2016, months after Abbes’s last phone call from Syria, Haddadi received an anonymous phone call from a man telling her that her son had died a martyr.

“I’m not worried but angry,” Haddadi told Le Parisien. “I lost my son. That day, it was as if my heart had been torn out. Now I find myself facing court. I’m already down on the ground and they’re still kicking me.”

“Unfair” and “unfounded”

Haddadi has persistently maintained that the charges against her are “unfair” and “unfounded”, and has denied having any connection with “these criminals”.

“She was aware that her son had developed radicalised views after serving prison time in France in 2014,” says Moore. “She claims to have alerted authorities but said that they failed to follow up her complaint.”

The French prosecutor’s office is likely to apply the full extent of the law in the trial against Haddadi and her fellow accused to dissuade other families from helping relatives close to extremist organisations.

Moore says that the case throws a spotlight on the plight of parents and family of jihadists from France and other European countries.

In France, voices similar to Haddadi’s are starting to speak out. And they’re wanting to be heard at a time when increasing numbers of people, former jihadist fighters and others linked to terrorism, are returning to Europe as the IS group loses more territory in Iraq and Syria.

“The authorities are scratching their heads as to how the justice system, how the prison system, can deal with this and as to what we can learn from these people about what led them down the path to extremism,” says Moore.

FRANCE 24: [DACA (AKA…TAKING FROM ALL AND GIVING TO THE UNWORTHY FEW)]: Obama: Ending ‘Dreamers’ programme ‘cruel and self-defeating’


Obama: Ending ‘Dreamers’ programme ‘cruel and self-defeating’

Barack Obama on Tuesday called the Trump administration’s decision to repeal a program protecting young immigrants from deportation “cruel” and “self-defeating.” He urged Congress to pass a bill fixing the situation “with a sense of moral urgency.”

http://www.france24.com/en/20170906-obama-ending-dreamers-programme-cruel-self-defeating-trump-daca

In a Facebook message, Obama said repealing the program casts a shadow over some of the nation’s best and brightest young people.
“To target these young people is wrong – because they have done nothing wrong,” he wrote.
The former president’s statement came as President Donald Trump announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program will end in six months.
During his campaign, Trump slammed the program, saying shielding immigrants brought to the United States illegally when they were children from deportation was illegal “amnesty.” Trump and his supporters, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, have called it unconstitutional.

DACA has provided nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the U.S. in the form of two-year, renewable work permits.
The Obama administration created the DACA program in 2012 as a stopgap as they pushed unsuccessfully for a broader immigration overhaul in Congress.

Many Republicans say they opposed the program on the grounds that it was executive overreach.
Legislation to legalize the so-called Dreamers has been lingering in Congress for years. Obama called anew on Congress to pass an immigration bill “with a sense of moral urgency that matches the urgency these young people feel.”
The former president added that deporting DACA recipients does not make sense, since “kicking them out won’t lower the unemployment rate, or lighten anyone’s taxes, or raise anybody’s wages.”
“It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love,” Obama said. “And it is cruel. What if our kid’s science teacher or our friendly neighbor turns out to be a Dreamer? Where are we supposed to send her? To a country she doesn’t know or remember, with a language she may not even speak?”

The most beautiful interpretation of “Like The Bird On The Wire”, ever. Perla flies like a dove above all, off a wire up in the skies, and dive on the winds of the accordeon, so divinely played. Perla Batalla is the priestess of freedom and joy of life everlasting in this magnificent scene: Sweet like nectar, and the salt of the Earth. If Leonard is the man, Perla is the woman, the lover, enchanter, charmer, the voice. Do you see that too, or is it only me?

Bird on The Wire Lyrics ( added 7/14/2015)

from Live In London
Lyric Video

“Bird on The Wire” is track #4 on the album Live In London. It was written by Cohen, Leonard.

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Oh, like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “You must not ask for so much”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?”

Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Songwriters
COHEN, LEONARD
