I'm starting a new thread on the naẓar amulet for protection against the Evil Eye. Now, the Evil Eye and the symbolism surrounding it is a widely acknowledged and historically relevant phenomenon across many cultures, so I'm just going to focus on the blue-eyed glass talismans.
Our journey starts in ancient #Mesopotamia, where 100s of votive figures were found in the excavation of the temple of Tell Brak. The most exclusive feature of these idols were their eyes. These amulets go back to 3300 BC and are the oldest eye amulets discovered.
The Evil Eye is a common term to refer to a specific curse being cast, intentional or unintentional, by the jealous looks of others towards the success of the one they envy. The ocular amulet is than in fact the charm meant to ward off the true Evil Eye.

1. A thread on Greece and how the Syriza government is facilitating vicious anarchists, convicted terrorists, indiscriminate violence and overall lawlessness in the country.

If you care about democracy and the rule of law in Europe, please read and share this.
2. Since getting elected in 2015, the Syriza-led government of PM Alexis Tsipras has actively turned Greece into a less safe country, directly attacking the foundations of democracy & rule of law, while diligently paving the way to dangerous phenomena of violence and lawlessness.
3. Shortly after getting in power in 2015, Syriza voted the infamous "Paraskevopoulos law" aimed at reducing overcrowding in Greece’s penitentiaries. Under this law, thousands of inmates were allowed to get out of jail early. ekathimerini.com/228150/article…

Only results of a #Referendum can nullify the results of previous #referendum.
Name of a #Country voted 1991 with 1.080.000 votes, can't be changed in the parliament with a #referendum that FAILED on the census rule.
The decision from 1991 still stands, #Republic of #Macedonia ✔️
When #Бојкотирам coalition comes to power, there will be no need to change the #Constitution, we will only declare #invalid all decisions, all interventions to the #Constitution made by @Zoran_Zaev's government @VladaMK.
This is a warning to #Greece and our "strategic partners"
We have a strong #International case in this.
Inquiries have been made, the day that #Бојкотирам coalition gains power, all involved in ilegal #namechange will be arrested and put to trial.
All their criminal, unconstitutional decisions will be ERASED, like they never were.

THREAD on #Russia/n Orthodox Church (ROC) breaking off “eucharistic communion" w/ #Constantinople Patriarchate.
1.CAVEAT: I don’t claim to be an expert in church relations but being Orthodox Christian & working on #Russia-related politics/policies I feel entitled to share few of my own observations esp in the face of mounting ignorance or propaganda from some of the usual "Russia watchers"
2. Within next days you will hear 3 dominating narratives on what came to be called "the new schism":
A.Patriarch Kirill is KGB (somewhat true).
B. ROC is a tool of #Kremlin (true).
C. Conflict emerged as aftermath of “#Russia trying to make #Ukraine submissive” (yes & no)

I’m carefully reading analyses of all the things that went wrong during the Greek crisis by the exact same group of EU officials, analysts, journalists and opinion-makers that pushed for them in the first place. And not even a hint of self-criticism or “mea culpa.” #Greece
I’ll never forget any of those pseudo-intellectual “objective” analysts / journalists that supported and excused Tsipras, Varoufakis, Konstantopoulou et al. in 2015 - the most vile and damaging political gang to ever rule #Greece - paving the way to the country’s premature death.
#Greece could have been saved in the end of 2014. It would not have been a perfect exit, but it would have worked. We were so close. The economy was rebounding, and it would further benefit from QE. And then came Tsipras. And four lost years that brought the country back to 1989.

Sea arrivals in #Spain are increasing.
But the closure of a #migration route doesn't mean that automatically migrants just move to a different one. There is little evidence of a 'route replacement' trend.
#migrationEU
This is an important reminder that 'immigration policies' can affect migration flows but are hardly the only factor at play. The drivers of #migration are multiple and can't be reduce to the political will 'at destination'.
There is an overall and significant decrease in sea arrivals, which should be a warning for everyone still using the word 'migration crisis', but this is not the case, see newint.org/features/web-e… #Salvini #Italy

50 dead in Greece from the deadly fires. I am absolutely devastated by this.
A Greek official has said that the death toll will most likely double to at least 100. One victim was a 6 month old baby. 25 died at once in the same field as they were fleeing to the closest beach.
As always, the Serbs are first to offer aid when Greece faces devastating fires. b92.net/eng/news/polit…

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

Terrible, terrible, terrible news from Greece. An unbelievable blow to the quality and independence of an exceptional independent watchdog of the Greek economy and state finances.
The Greek Parliamentary Budget Office, since its establishment in 2010, has been a provider of high-quality, independent, in-depth and hard-hitting reports on the Greek economy, government revenues and public sector finances - irrespective of the governing party in place.
With a small team, and largely thanks to the leadership of Prof. Panagiotis Liargovas, the PBO gradually became a trusted, transparent and rich source of information about Greece - for investors, public officials & academics alike. Everyone reads their quarterly/annual reports.
