Thread: #NATO behind the riots in #Montenegro against Serbian Orthodox Church

#Christianity #ChristianOrthodox #Serbs #MontenegrinSerbs #EU

⬇️ Full Thread ⬇️
Various powers are trying to gain influence over Serbian Orthodox Church in #Serbia, #Montenegro and #RepublikaSrpska.

#NATO has been one of them, next to #Vatican and #UDBA, Yugoslavia’s very secret service that still has a huge power in countries of a former #Yugoslavia. ⬇️
Western media usually refer to #Serbia as a “Russian ally.” While this is true only in a historical and cultural sense, there is no formal military alliance between #Moscow and #Belgrade.

Serbia officially follows the the policy of military neutrality, with its armed forces ⬇️

Now when they had escaped, they then found out that the island was called Malta. And the natives showed us unusual kindness; for they kindled a fire and made us all welcome, because of the rain that was falling and because of the cold. But when Paul had gathered a bundle of
sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, "No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not

1. A little bit of deconstruction is needed on the topic of Greek War of Independence. The events that caused to Greek Independence is the "first armed intervention" on humanitarian grounds in the world history ---> Image
2. The spark ignited the fuse leading to “Greek Revolution” (called in Greece) was the French Revolution and its enlightenment principles. It was then that “the Neo-Hellenic Englightment” was spawned which saw Ottoman rule as unacceptable and the Greeks being “in chains”...
3. ... even though the educated #Romioi were prospering, with #Phanariots ( quasi-Aristocracy in #Constantinople) holding state positions, despite being a subject people, the “Rum millet”. Image

On December 12, 1944, Regina Jonas is murdered in #Auschwitz. To date, the #world's #first #woman who worked as a #rabbi. Regina Jonas was in her early 40s when she was #murdered in #Auschwitz. She belongs to the "#Masorti" movement,
the traditional but not #orthodox current in #Judaism. She was born in August 1902 as the daughter of an #Orthodox #Jewish peddlers in Berlin's barn district. Jonas is deported to #ghetto #Theresienstadt north of #Prague on November 1942.
During the #Shoah, Jonas in #Theresienstadt encourages her fellow prisoners. On December 12, 1944, she is murdered in the #exterminationcamp #Auschwitz. The knowledge of the fate of Regina Jonas is due to a Protestant theologian, the German Katharina von Kellenbach.

#Antisemitic Incident !!!

#Belgium #Aalst

The #Belgian city of #Aalst returns the #award of its #carnival as a #Worldheritage Site.
Background are allegations of #racism and #antisemitism.
Mayor Christoph D'Haese said that one has had enough of the "grotesque #complaints" and let the #carnival be #deleted from the list. He thus came before a decision of @UNESCO before.
he had already considered removing the #Aalst #Carnival from World Heritage at the upcoming mid-month meeting.
The controversy has been going on since #spring. At that time D'Haese defended a float of the procession,

Orthodoxy made #Hindu Samaj non-inclusive and created deep faultlines for others to exploit. For orthodoxy, the 'mlechchh' is as much a non-Hindu as a Scheduled Caste person. #Orthodoxy never strengthens society or faith. Reject orthodoxy like Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar did. 1/n
Laughable that you can't accept food delivered by a non-Hindu because it is #Shravan. Does the food come certified that it has been cooked and packed by Hindus? A true #orthodox would cook his food, wash his utensils, carry his water. You are not even true to orthodoxy. 2/n
History tells us orthodoxy has inflicted incalculable harm to #Hinduism and #Hindu Samaj. Orthodoxy defended sati, child marriage, putrid casteism, purdah. #Orthodoxy opposed Hindu Code, women's education, equal rights, temple entry. Examples abound. 3/n

Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Behaalotcha called "Camp and Congregation". You can read it in full here: bit.ly/2IuewNW and download the accompanying Family Edition here: bit.ly/2WV9jYl. #ShabbatShalom Image
#Judaism in the past two centuries has fissured and fractured into different edot [communities]: #Orthodox and #Reform, #religious and #secular, and the many subdivisions that continue to atomise #Jewish #life into non-communicating sects and subcultures.
Yet in times of #crisis, we are still capable of heeding the call of collective #responsibility, knowing as we do that Jewish fate tends to be indivisible. No Jew, to paraphrase John Donne, is an island, entire of him- or herself.

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)

Following are the 4 largest gatherings against Israel over the last few years, with tens of thousands of Anti-Zionist #Orthodox #Jews.

1) At the Barclays Stadium last year 06.11.2017:
Rabbi Shappiro: "The Jewish People Have No State!"
Listen:
Rabbi: "The State of Israel has as much to do with Judaism or Jewish Identity as China or Korea does...! They should stop calling themselves a Jewish State because that's a lie! They can call themselves, maybe Herzlstan...!"
-Thousands of Jews applauding
2) On June 9, 2013, tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews assembled on the streets of NY to protest against the existence of the State of Israel, and to condemn it's current evil decree to forcibly draft yeshiva students to their Army:

Rabbi Stauber:
