1/4 An extreme rare and widely unknown event of #humanity during the #SmyrnaHolocaust. In #Smyrna, now #Izmir the #Greek and #Armenian #Christian residents were forced to the docks to escape, many though met their deaths, the #Japanese ship Tokei Maru was one of the first to help
2/4 At the time, some Allied warships were in the harbor, along with many merchant ships. But most of them refused to pick up refugees. Amidst all the chaos, a #Japanese freighter was reported to have unloaded all its precious cargo to take on as many refugees as it could
3/4Tokei Maru rescued many #Greeks and #Armenians in the face of Chaos, loss of cargo and reported threats. The bravery of the Tokei Maru and her crew is to be admired, an act of #humanityoverhatred. Smyrna was almost completely burned and it's #Christians exiled and exterminated

Thread. What is the link between #red & worms? Why is there an insect whose Latin name is '#worm little worm'? Let's start with a Sanskrit term: "krimija", "worm-made". (I know no Sanskrit, so please feel free to offer better translations). This was borrowed into Persian as قرمز.
2... qermez (contemporary Tehran pronunciation: ghermez), meaning 'red'. Above, popular Iranian children's TV character kolah ghermezi, 'red hat'. This appears to have happened in early Islamic times; in Middle Persian 'red' is 'sukhr' (New Persian sorkh). What about the worms?
3. Well, before the advent of synthetic #chemistry in the 2nd half of the 19th century, #dyes & pigments were mostly obtained from plant roots, or in certain cases, animals. The most famous is the 'imperial purple' obtained from the glands of Mediterranean sea snails.

As I recover from #COVID19 I remember the strength of my ancestors, esp my grandfather #DavidOhannessian, who mastered ceramic art in Ottoman Kutahya in the years before WW1, survived exile during the #ArmenianGenocide & founded the art of #Armenianceramics in Jerusalem in 1919
I tell his story in a book #FeastofAshes & share here a sample of his art, which changed the face of Jerusalem, where he carried over the Ottoman Kutahya ceramics tradition. This art continues to flourish today in the studios of several Armenian families. a.co/d/5sJrGkp
One of #DavidOhannessian’s most characteristic works in Jerusalem, the tiled triptych made for St John’s Ophthalmic Hospital in the 1920s, when it was renovated by #architect Austen St Barbe Harrison #Armenianceramics

1. @POTUS Trump and @RTErdogan have something in common. They will both be charged with #genocide. Trump will be tried in the US under 18 USC 1091. Unless #Erdogan is dumb enough to come here, it will likely require a #Nuremberg style war crimes tribunal.
2. Turkey, like the US, does not subscribe to the International Criminal Court. But we have a criminal statute that makes it a capital crime. I don't think Turkey has a genocide statute. Turkey is a genocide repeat offender. #Armenian #Christians were among their major victims.
3. The crime of genocide requires "specific intent" to effect the result of destroying in substantial part "a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group." For Erdogan that's easy. Many times he has professed his intent to exterminate Kurds. This is his "kill Kurds" hand sign

🇦🇲 El exónimo Armenia, del griego Ἀρμενία, y este del persa 𐎠𐎼𐎷𐎡𐎴 (Armina), puede encontrarse por primera vez en la Inscripción de Behistún, ordenada por el emperador Darío I de Persia, de la dinastía de los aqueménidas, entre los años 522 a. C. y 486 a. C.

#armenian
👫 Las palabras հայեր (hayer) y Հայաստան (Hayastan), ambas derivadas de հայ (hay), son los endónimos para el pueblo y el país, respectivamente. Se desconoce la etimología exacta del nombre, aunque existen varias hipótesis que lo conectan con topónimos y etnónimos más antiguos.
👥 Sus 3,843,000 hablantes, de los cuales 2,960,000 en Armenia, pueden encontrarse también en Azerbaiyán, Irán y Rusia.

⚖️ Se reconce su estatuto de lengua oficial de Armenia en el artículo 12 de la Constitución de 1995.

“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

Video published by Strana.ua corroborates my #Maidan massacre studies findings & shows that #Belarusian far right protester was killed in false flag shooting from Maidan-controlled area & not by police during Maidan in #Ukraine 5 years ago. strana.ua/articles/analy…
The video indicates that he was shot behind a barricade from burned buses that covered him from police. It shows him behind the bus barricade in a red helmet & with a stick at 54 sec and then his red helmet falling behind the bus at 1:13 after a gunshot.
Forensic medical examination found that he was killed from close distance of no more than 3 to 5 meters, while this video and other videos show the Berkut police much further. It determined that he was shot in chest from top to bottom & left to right directions.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
