Desperado…

image

At odd wars with every grain of sand,
relentlessly screwing its way
from in between the colourless longitude
underneath my tired eyelid,
through the haunted solitude
of my tormenting visions,
dreams long due…
I’ve lost all my brothers,
and all my sisters to kitchen tongs
and other rusty, surgical contraptions,
courtesy of hellbound asteroids
from the firmament dividing
no man’s land,
and no god’s heaven…

Each year, trees remember;
rings telling tales of despair
and deceit,
hoping to grow older than
the suffocating embrace
of their own,
dying leaves…

Sun columnist Katie Hopkins calls for ‘euthanasia vans’ as Britain has ‘far too many old people’

Wow…
Abject thoughts from a degenerate aberrant subhuman’s damaged brain leftovers…

«Sun columnist Katie Hopkins calls for ‘euthanasia vans’ as Britain has ‘far too many old people’ http://www.rt.com/uk/310944-hopkins-kill-old-people/

Media personality Katie Hopkins claims the UK has “far too many old people” and says she would be “super keen on euthanasia vans” to eradicate the problem.

The controversial Sun columnist, who only recently apologized for the language in her inflammatory piece which referred to immigrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean as “cockroaches,” said it was “ridiculous” that animals could be put to sleep, “but not people.”

In an interview with the Radio Times, she argued although medical science allowed people to live longer, that didn’t necessarily mean it was the right path to choose.

“We just have far too many old people,” she said. “It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.”

“We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

Her solution to the problem? “Easy. Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home.”

“It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans,” she said.

Hopkins also ruminated on the state of education, saying children were unnecessarily pampered and advocating harsher segregation of abilities.

“They split you into A and B streams, which was great because you knew you were with the bright ones and all the thick kids were in the B group,” she said of her own school days.

“It was fine and super-efficient – I still think so. If you’re slow, go sit with the slow kids. None of this endless negotiation, discussion, ‘golden time’ nonsense you get in state schools these days.”

The columnist recently sparked anger when she referred to North African migrants as “cockroaches” and “feral humans” in a column suggesting authorities use “gunships” rather than “rescue boats” to tackle the problem.

“Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care,” she wrote.

Her remarks led to condemnation by UN high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, who compared the column to a piece of pro-genocide propaganda.

In an interview with the Press Association, however, Hopkins said there had been “some things” in her column which “in hindsight you’d probably look to pull out of there.”»

The night before…

Emanuelle, called
her last known dog.
A small, franchise variety of shepherd dogs…
Her toes were frozen outside
ill famed taverns,
where lurking memories of former gentlemen,
mingled with odd smells of quick fortunes, and lads,
pinching unseen butts of unfinished, cheap cigarettes…
“Who are you?”
And it sounded weird
from a dog she thought to know
a bit better than the surprise
of hearing yet another
vain marriage proposal.
“Owls never bark, Serghei;
and knights arrive precisely
at the dawn of every fallen evening…”
The dog quietly packed its feet behind the sofa,
and wept.
Alone,
like every other slab of marble…

Of smaller seagulls…

Another, smaller seagull
paced across the wooden ashes
of yet another sunset…
No waters followed,
feathers scarce,
like unrepentant memories…
Again, alive it seamed,
so selfish,
screaming for a nest-shape…

Au revoir ma chère,
à bientôt, my lover
of way too many mornings
resting on your decks;
I called a helper,
harbouring forever
a life, a sentence, all together,
of unforgiving, hollow wrecks…

“The real Syrian moderates: voices of reason…”

«”While the Western-led, anti-Assad bloc mind-blowingly speaks of arming non-existent “moderates” to fight in Syria, they also continue to demonize and silence the very voices that offer a true means of bringing peace and stability back to the region.

Two of these voices are: Political and Media Adviser to President al-Assad, Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban; and Syria’s highest Muslim official and scholar, Grand Mufti Dr. Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun. Both are highly-educated and convey messages of dialogue, understanding, and peace. And both seemingly terrify the West, which has been quick to sanction and deny them visas, lest the anti-Syria lies and propaganda be challenged before a Western audience.

From February 24-26, 2015, the US delegation I accompanied met a number of important Syrian figures, including Mufti Hassoun and Dr. Shaaban.

Dr. Shaaban is known to her American friends as “the bridge,” she says. “I always wanted to be a bridge between Syria and Western cultures.” She has lived abroad, earning a PhD in English literature from Warwick University, on a Fulbright scholarship at Duke University, and later as professor at Eastern Michigan University.

She speaks affectionately and respectfully of Americans: “I enjoyed American people, their hospitality and kindness.” Affection for the people aside, she is heavily critical of the US government and allies’ prolonged attack on Syria.

Not only has the West backed and trained terrorists in Syria, the so-called “opposition” they hand-picked to represent Syrians can’t even pretend to do so. “They adopted personalities who haven’t lived in Syria for 30 years! Further, they took the wrong step in closing embassies, instead of communicating with us and observing from the ground. In the name of ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’ they are destroying our country.”

As for countries neighboring and near Syria, Dr. Shaaban notes:

“Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar…they are the spearhead of what has happened here.” She points out that beyond President Erdogan’s suits and smiles; he is a staunch supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has long sought to disrupt Syria. Add to the fray Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabi extremism and the result is the “moderate” organ-eating, head-chopping, crucifying mercenaries plaguing Syria, from the so-called FSA to al-Nusra to Da’esh (ISIS). “With external support and financing, and an over 800 kilometer border with Turkey, it’s very difficult to stop the flow of terrorists.”

In our meeting, Shaaban paints a picture of the Syria that existed prior to this multi-regime attack on its sovereignty.

“Syria was formerly one of the fastest developing countries in the world, and one of the safest. We have free education and health care. We did not know poverty; we grew our food and produced our own clothing. At universities, 55 percent of the students were women.” Already, these are points the West would prefer remain unheard, points which dispute the lies that Syrians were living in miserable oppression prior to the faux-revolution, and also which could not be said about NATO’s Gulf state allies.

“The souk of Aleppo was the most beautiful. It’s now rubble, they destroyed it. In whose interest is it to destroy this heritage? Who is the beneficiary of this? I’m sure if the American public knew the truth about what is happening in Syria they wouldn’t accept Syrian people being slaughtered.”…»

‘No to anti-Semitism’: Norwegian Muslims form human chain around Oslo synagogue

The day I am proud to be a human being!
I hope this to be the day when mankind have decided to raise above the pragmatic interests of money empires…
Thank you, true Muslims of Norway!
I have dreamed for long of the day when Muslims and Jews will finally come together, showing the world that there are more things to unite us, than those to divide us!

Please feel free to reblog this article, spreading the hope!

Muslims in Oslo formed a human chain around the city’s main synagogue, chanting “No to anti-Semitism, no to Islamophobia.” Over 1,000 people took part in the rally to show solidarity with Jews just a week after a fatal shooting in a Denmark synagogue.

Muslims in Norway, many young women, formed what they called a ring of peace, as the small Jewish congregation filed out of the synagogue after Shabbat prayers on Saturday.

The Muslim message to the Jews in Norway was simple – they mourn and stand in solidarity with the victims of increasingly instances of violence against Jews in Europe, including the terror attacks in France in January and in neighboring Denmark last week.

“This shows that there are many more peacemakers than war-makers,” Zeeshan Abdullah, one of the organizers told the crowd. “There is still hope for humanity, for peace and love across religious differences and background.”

The spirit of solidarity filled the air, with Norway’s chief rabbi performing a traditional Shabbat ceremony outside.

“It is unique that Muslims stand to this degree against anti-Semitism and that fills us with hope…particularly as it’s a grassroots movement of young Muslims,” said Norway’s Jewish community leader Ervin Kohn.

Just to be on the safe side, authorities, apart from ramping up the police presence, also dispatched sharp shooters around the building.

“It has been calm as we expected. We had no reason to expect any trouble but we were prepared,” said police superintendent Steiner Hausvik, adding that about 1,300 people attended the vigil.

The disturbing spate of attacks against the Jewish minority in Europe prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to urge European Jews to immigrate to Israel if they felt unsafe. Europe’s Jewish population has been steadily declining over the past seven decades after the WWII. While in 1960 it was about 3.2 million, by 2010 only 1.4 million were living there – or roughly 0.2 percent of Europe’s population, according to the PEW Research Center.»

​‘It’s a slippery slope from yoga to Satan’ – Irish priest

You have been warned…!?
Beware, ye yogies and Potter readers…!?

Any thoughts…?

http://rt.com/uk/234443-priest-yoga-satan-danger/

«A Catholic priest in Northern Ireland cautioned against practicing yoga and receiving Indian head massages, saying that those who take such risks with their “spiritual health” are opening themselves up to “Satan and the Fallen Angels.”

Father Roland Colhoun warned that those partaking in the ancient practice may be led into the “Kingdom of Darkness.”

“Pope Francis said ‘do not seek spiritual answers in yoga classes’. Yoga is certainly a risk. There’s the spiritual health risk,” he told the Derry Journal.

“When you take up those practices from other cultures, which are outside our Christian domain, you don’t know what you are opening yourself up to,” he added.

“The bad spirit can be communicated in a variety of ways. I’m not saying everyone gets it, or that it happens every time, and people may well be doing yoga harmlessly. But there‘s always a risk and that’s why the Pope mentioned it and that’s why we talk about that in terms of the danger of the new age movement and the danger of the occult today. That’s the fear.”

Prominent officials in the Catholic Church have expressed wariness about yoga in the past.

In 2011, the Vatican’s chief exorcist, Gabriele Amorth, said that yoga leads to a belief in Hinduism, and that “all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation”.

“Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter,” he told the Telegraph.

Father Gabriel Amorth … and yoga fan

Even the late former Pope Benedict XVI cautioned Christians in 1989 against partaking in yoga, Zen and other forms of meditation, suggesting that they could “degenerate into a cult of the body.”

One Derry yoga instructor, however, defended the practice, telling the Belfast Telegraph that teaching yoga for 15 years has not stopped her from being a “good, practicing Catholic.” Evelyn Donnelly said that her yoga students come to classes to “learn good posture and breathing to help them with tension in their bodies and to help calm a busy mind.”

“In all the time I have been teaching, not one person has ever expressed an interest going deeper into the spiritual elements of yoga,” she added.»

So much for pope Francis’ open mindedness; it sounds more like open madness, but why am I surprised…?
