Internationalism Thread

Politics typically boils down to a choice between two tough options - perhaps two awful options. We all sort of know this, but at some point this concept becomes a hot reality. In 2021, I supported #NoMore &
viewed sanctions as borderline betrayal to the homeland. I viewed the west as being permanently fixated on installing TPLF, specifically, in order to destabilize the HOA region for one reason or another. I viewed changing the narrative in the west to be virtually impossible.
But since then, I've seen the deterioration of the nation under @AbiyAhmedAli 's growing dictatorship. I've seen the mounting evidence that his government, in concert with Gov. @ShimelisAbdisa's & Mayr @AdanechAbiebie's respective administrations, is highly likely behind the

#Ukrainian Orthodox Church (#moscow Patriarchate) - #Disinformation #Overview Image

‘According to #Archbishop #Evstratiy, a spokesman of the #Ukrainian #Orthodox #Church, the statements of #Patriarch #Kirill are #untrue.

Meskel Square & Arat Kilo for vehicles & pedestrians for Sunday Feb 12, the day of cancelled rally. Specifically about Arat Kilo where Abiy Ahmed’s palace is, the statement read “It is forbidden to go to Arat Kilo from any direction.”
The government said the reason for 2/4
the streets closure including parking is the life size military drills to be held by its joint security
forces ahead of the upcoming #AfricanUnion General Assembly the capital is hosting soon.The duration of closure overlaps with the time of the Sunday Holy Mass of the #EOTC 3/4

I am not a #Christian; my friend Chara (who writes at @KrisAtLarge) is Catholic—albeit a heretical one—but I am no "believer". as I've said, I tend to leave religion to others.

all the same, it's tough *not* to have opinions about #Christianity—we're inundated with it.

in the United States especially, right-wing politics—which infallibly promotes an extremist and hyperpoliticized form of #Christianity—pours enormous effort and money into publicizing #Christian political demands.

@GOP politics and Bible-bashing are practically the same.

in fact, it seems like *all* public spokespersons for Christianity in the U.S. are political figures. #Christian @GOP politicians and activists and corporate executives proudly proclaim their purpose in public office to be the promotion of "Jesus" and "faith" and "values".

1. The apostle Paul said: "If God is for us, who is against us?"

On this day, exactly 4 years ago, a great historical event took place, in which God was with us, and we were with God! The Orthodox #Church of Ukraine received Tomos from the Ecumenical Patriarch.⬇️
2.The creation of the autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine is a guarantee of our independence.This is the foundation of our spiritual freedom. We broke the ties that tied us to Moscow with its fantasies about Ukraine as the canonical territory of the russian Orthodox Church⬇️
3. And today we have to finish what we started once and for all.
I will not stop thanking the Ecumenical #Patriarch as the spiritual leader of the #Orthodox people, as a global figure who heard our voice and our requests. I am grateful to all Ukrainians who sincerely believed⬇️

Megalopolis x #Russia: Total War by Pepe Escobar…

After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

Operation Z is the first salvo of a titanic struggle: three decades after the fall of the USSR, and 77 years after the end of WWII, after careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

Real reasons for #conflict are buried in history & intermittently ooze out like hot lava from fissures. #Europe's been an active conflict zone for long born out of a stiff #RomanHangover ever since the #Empire collapsed.#Theopolitics is 1 ingredient in its conflict cocktail
Conflict in #Europe has to be understood in that context before jumping in & taking sides. Colonial times afforded no option & the world got involved twice converting #EuropeanConflict's into #WorldWar's. Many unconcerned died. India lost many braves from #Gallipoli to #Siam
#Ukraine is the latest in a tiring list & has many players beyond just army & politicians. Eastern Orthodox Church, Greek Catholic Church, Patriarchies of Moscow, Constantinople & Kyiv & that west & east of #Dnieper think differently.. all making up the hidden factors

What leaves behind the 🇷🇺 world.
They are destroying even #Orthodox churches, despite the fact that Orthodoxy is part of their powerful propaganda.

But before destroying this architectural monument in the #Chernihiv region, they first turned it into an ammunition depot and fired on civilians.

Russia 🇷🇺 is a beautiful country. I have many dear Russian friends.

What Russian invasion army under Putin’s orders is doing in Ukraine is condemned by all of the International community.
@MFA @RT… Image
Russia 🇷🇺 could be a prosperous nation if only the country was not run by Putin’s Silovik kleptocrats.

The only way for Russian youth to succeed in the future is to over-throw criminal Putin and choose #peace in Ukraine 🇺🇦. Stand up to Putin insanity!
#StandWithUkraine Image
Putin’s unjustified, criminal invasion is turning Russia 🇷🇺 into a pariah state.

The phase of invasion war can be over in days or weeks, but the World will not forget in a generation. Ukrainian 🇺🇦 people will never forget Putin’s Holodomor.

توفّي، أمس الأحد، الأرشمندريت #بندلايمون_فرح، وسيُدفَن في جبل آثوس في #اليونان حيث نُفي لمدّة خمس سنوات بعد الحكم عليه بقضايا #تحرش بقاصرين والاعتداء الجنسيّ عليهم.
#لبنان Image
وكان قرار النفي قد صدر العام 2017 في دير سيّدة #البلمند، بعد أربع سنوات على إصدار مطران #جبل_لبنان للروم الأرثوذكس جورج خضر قراراً بانعزال الأرشمندريت داخل دير سيّدة حماطورة الذي كان يرأسه في كوسبا- #الكورة، ومنعه من أداء الخدمة الكهنوتيّة أو استقبال الزوّار.
مع وفاة #بندلايمون_فرح، تطوى صفحة «راهب» #متحرش، لكنّ صفحة ضحاياه ومعاناتهم لا تزال ربّما مفتوحةً، هم الذين تجاهلتهم المحاكم المدنيّة، ولم تمنحهم المحاكم الكنسيّة إلا حدّاً أدنى من العدالة.

THREAD #Serbian #Orthodox #Church bishops start Conclave (#Sabor-Holy Assembly in #SPC parlance) to elect new #Patriarch, 3 months after previous died of #Covid. Election much more about politics than religion, mainly #Serbia #Kosovo relations but also #Russia Orthodox Church /2
2/ vs. #Ecumenical Patriarch of #Constantinople. Most of numerous traditional cleavages within SPC (Young Lions vs. Old Guards); Serbians vs. TransDrinians; ecumenicals vs. hardline Orthodox etc. will be irrelevant with only the split between Russian vs. Greek students, roughly/3
3/corresponding with main division: support for whatever "solution" President Vucic might propose to satisfy int'l demand to at least de facto recognize Kosovo vs. stubborn refusal to accept anything not in line with current Serbian constitution that says #KosovoJeSrbija. /4

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.

Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭

Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage
