Freedom For Egypt Rally Held In New York City On January 31, 2011

I travelled to Manhattan, New York to show my support to the brave and steadfast Protesters in Egypt. It was a two-hour commute one way, but it was well worth the trek as this was an important event. You may have seen my blog entry from January 28 which featured the Freedom For Egypt Rally in Jersey City. The reasons why I am involved with this activism are discussed in depth at http://michaeltheresearcher.blogspot.com/2011/01/freedom-for-egypt-rally-held-in-jersey.html

As for the Rally on January 31, I arrived when it was just getting dark so the photographs are dark, but I still feel they turned out well. Some are of the Protesters, some feature myself near the crowd and others are with some Egyptian-Arabs who braved the cold to support the Freedom Fighters in Egypt.

Here I am next to a very nice young woman who actually lives in Egypt. As you can see, her sign features the symbols of Islam and Christianity with the phrase "The Revolution of all EGYPTIANS". She and I spoke for a little while during and after the Rally.

This video features my brief introduction, two scenes from the Rally, my parting words and finally the signs, Hieroglyphs tie and Aset/Isis necklace I brought with me. As you can see, I am giving a toast to all of the world's Freedom Fighters and Supporters!

This matter has the attention of the entire world, but we need to do more. All acknowledgement should lead to some activism and this is why I was present ... I wanted the Egyptian people to know someone across the globe is standing in solidarity with them. Solidarity With The People Of Egypt!

The Islamic Republic Of Iran Spins The Recent Protests In The Arab World

Of course the Islamic Republic Of Iran is going to spin the protests in Tunisia, Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab World. Check out the nonsense spewed in Kayhan (a daily newspaper in Iran) and Iranian state television. You will laugh or be appalled or be nauseated.

Here is the article - http://www.rferl.org/content/egypt_unrest_view_from_iran/2290385.html

The regime claims the recent uprisings were inspired by Ruhollah Khomeini's Islamic Revolution of 1979 which is, if nothing else, odd since most of the Protesters were born AFTER 1979 (some more than a decade after 1979). These young people know of Khomeini's lies, deceptions and hijacking of a movement and the subsequent monstrosity of a society his revolution created. Furthermore, besides grievances pertaining to poverty and unemployment, the Protesters in North Africa are marching for greater personal freedom and human rights. The demand for personal freedom and human rights is completely in line with and exactly parallels the demonstrations and protests that followed Iran's disputed election of 2009 ... the same demonstrations and protests the Islamic regime was so determined to smash.

Are the protests "taking place in the name of Islam" as the Iranian regime claims? The answer is no. The protests in Tunisia and Egypt have been non-sectarian. As testament to the fact of the Egyptian movement's non-sectarian nature, when a few members of Egypt's banned political party known as the Muslim Brotherhood entered a demonstration chanting "Allah Akbar", the rest of the crowd drowned them out with their own chants of "Muslim, Christian, we're all Egyptian." (Source: http://twitter.com/sharifkouddous/status/31369429967183872).

The spin-doctors within the Islamic Republic Of Iran are completely ignoring the realities on the ground. It is no surprise the regime would issue some sort of statement on this matter and use the uprisings to spew their typical nonsensical rhetoric. The regime is delusional as always and their spin machine reflects this.

Freedom For Egypt Rally Held In Jersey City On January 28, 2011

Some of you may have seen my blog entries pertaining to rallies dedicated to the Iranian Protesters. I have continued that sort activism in 2011 and despite it still being a very young year, the events of this year have been extraordinary and Earth-shattering. A full-scale Revolution took place in Tunisia and Southern Sudan held a historic vote on the issue of secession from the North. This week the entire world has been following the shocking turn of events in Egypt. Egypt was the first or second country that came to mind once Tunisia's president had fled the country. People posited if the Tunisians can do it, Egyptians can do it as well. Pundits dismissed the idea claiming the nation of Egypt is not similar to Tunisia in terms of population and circumstance so a widespread phenomenon mirroring that of Tunisia was not likely or even possible. Egypt was not going to be the second domino to fall, but on Tuesday, January 25, that conjecture, and dream to some, did in fact come to pass as motivated Egyptians entered the streets. They brought with them a list of demands pertaining to income, justice, personal liberty, individual rights and term limits. Each subsequent day's protests appeared to get larger and larger leading up to the all-important "Friday Of Anger" scheduled for January 28. This movement is massive in volume and significance and it merits everybody's attention and reflection. I had to be a part of this momentous event and show my solidarity to the brave and determined Freedom Fighters on the streets. My commute to Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey was over 90 miles one way and I had barely slept all week due to my desire to keep abreast of the happenings in Egypt (activists did an excellent job disseminating information as it was revealled). Despite the fatigue, I just had to attend.

My photographs and video footage are literally behind the action ...

Photobucket

Here I am at the Rally. I look pretty worn-out here. I only got four hours of sleep on Monday, four hours on Tuesday, four hours on Wednesday and ZERO hours on Thursday! I was alert though and my success in battling the fatigue was predicated to my drive to inform the Egyptians watching from back home and the Egyptian diaspora that someone in the USA cares about their plight and their cause. A mere twelve hours of sleep in four days makes a guy look very rough (and to top it off, almost an entire additional day has passed with no sleep due to my putting this blog entry together) ...

Here I am with a group of very appreciative Egyptians. They were touched to see a non-Egyptian take such an interest, and personal commitment by driving so far, in this current situation. This would have been a great pic if I did not blink!

Photobucket

Another one ... I am wearing an Egypt-themed tie!!

Photobucket

I made some signs for the Rally ...

Slogans in English and German:

Photobucket

I do have a personal connection to the country. This photo was taken on the Giza Plateau in February 2006:

Photobucket

This next poster is a collage featuring some key (what I consider key) individuals in this struggle. These are screen shots I made from recently-filmed videos that have been circulating on the internet:

Photobucket

The men and their words and actions truly capture the intent and essence of this movement.

One video showcased the steadfastness of the man who said "I will die today". He is standing up for a cause that is so important, he would give his life. A true person of conviction. This really puts the matter into perspective for all of us.

The other man believes in the solidarity and shared mission of the Christian, the Muslim and the Atheist ... rights for all of us and the inevitable fight for those rights. His passion is genuine and this is a rallying call for everybody. I was wide-eyed and in awe when I heard him say all of that.

The other man who stood in front of the truck - that was Egypt's Tiananmen Square moment. It was so similar to that. My eyes focused on that scene and I got chills watching it. He stood there and took the blast from the large hose.

This is not some phony rhetoric - this is a genuine effort and these protesters epitomize the struggle for all humans. This is extraordinary and incredibly emotional. This is true change.

The final poster was difficult to photograph so I provided two versions. You can see the proverbial domino effect ... the Tunisian domino falling on the Mubarak domino:

I filmed parts of the Rally in Journal Square with an introduction and my final words at the end:


The url for the above video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tImJPA8hchA

The Egyptian Association For Change hosted the Rally. Their website is: http://eacusa.org

Photobucket

The Rally was a fine example of human beings coming together to speak out against atrocities and brutality and the various examples of injustices that take place every day. I told several people that for years it has been "Us" versus "Us" while "They" watch ... it should be a unified "Us" versus "Them" ... the ones who seek to keep "Us" divided.

I will continue to monitor this topic with great interest. To the Freedom Fighters in Egypt - my thoughts are with you. I wish you all the best during these extremely important times in your personal lives and in the history of your country. May Victory be achieved soon.

Yes, may Victory be achieved soon and may I get to sleep soon. As I mentioned, I did not sleep Thursday night and due to my putting this blog entry together, almost another day has passed where I have been completely awake. Now I am getting to sleep ... finally.

Mozart Kugeln Aka Mozart BALLS!

Today is January 27, 2011. On this day back in 1756, composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. I am spending the day celebrating Wolfgang's Birth Anniversary with some music, a tie and a popular candy made in Germany called Mozart Kugeln or Mozart BALLS! Enjoy!

Here are some pictures of the product ...

Photobucket

One of them is opened so you can see how it looks:

Here is a tie that makes reference to Mozart in a couple of places:

Here I am having some fun wearing the tie, listening to Mozart's Symphony 40 In G Minor KV 550 and showing the Balls to everybody:

A Greek Old Testament From The Year 1653

I felt compelled to go into the archives and find a fine item to spotlight. This is what I decided to showcase. Here is an incomplete copy of a Greek Old Testament (Vetus Testamentum Græcum), also known as The Septuagint (LXX). As you can see it is fragmentary. Only 58 leaves (aka pages) are present along with the Title Page and the covers/boards.

The Books contained within the leaves comprise ...

KINGS III / ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΩΝ Γ / ספר מלכים
KINGS IV / ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΩΝ Δ / ספר מלכים
CHRONICLES I / ΠΑΡΑΛΕΙΠΟΜΕΝΩΝ Α / דברי הימים
CHRONICLES II / ΠΑΡΑΛΕΙΠΟΜΕΝΩΝ Β / דברי הימים
ESDRAS Ι / ΕΣΔΡΑΣ Α / עֶזְרָא
NEHEMIAH / ΝΕΕΜΙΑΣ / נְחֶמְיָה
JOB / ΙΩΒ / אִיוֹב‎ ʾ
JEREMIAS / ΙΕΡΕΜΙΑΣ / יִרְמְיָהוּ
JEZEKIEL / ΙΕΖΕΚΙΗΛ / יְחֶזְקֵאל‎‎

Here are some photographs ...

You will note a lot of writing on the Title Page:
