What happens to humans who disagree with freedom?

There exist yet leaders whom are hell bent on ignoring their people’s needs.

Must be horrible to experience the consequence of failing to acknowledge others as humans.

 

Archbishop of Punjab, Pakistan agrees with Archbishop of Canterbury

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

His Excellency continues, “And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realizing that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.” (Look at the date of this article. It appears on the surface to be almost a prophecy of what the Syrians are experiencing now. Various human societies obviously are not as interested in preserving the Original Christian History as they pretend.)

Photojournalist Giulio Paletta, who specialises in small Christian groups, has been to Tur Abdin in south-east Turkey to record the life of the Syrian Christians.

The little ancient Christian community in the mountains has been immune from Roman influence but suffered in recent upheavals which saw death or exile from beginning of the 19th century to the 1990s. The Syrian Orthodox minority now finds itself struggling with little support from the Turkish authorities.

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realising that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.”

Speaking of the community’s present struggle with poverty and harassment, Dr Williams said that he wanted to express solidarity with them and pray for them.

“Turkey has an honourable tradition of tolerating and protecting religious minorities and it would be a tragedy if the next generation were to see that tradition becoming any weaker.”

The Bishop of Woolwich read out a message from the Bishop of Tur Abdin who said that it was a great comfort to have support from the British ecumenical Tur Abdin Focus Group which is staging the exhibition.

A second message was received from the Patriarch of Antioch who visited Lambeth Palace last year. The Patriarch’s representative Bishop Polycarpos also spoke.

Canon Bruce Saunders, welcoming the Archbishop, said: “Southwark Cathedral is a parish church rooted in this local community, we are the mother church of the diocese but from time to time we also behave like an English cathedral should with a national profile doing something which takes our interest beyond our own boundaries.”

Among guests at the opening were the Syrian Ambassador, diplomatic representatives from the Netherlands and Turkey, Metropolitan Seraphim of Glastonbury, the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, Fr Stephen Griffith who is both Anglican Chaplain in Syria and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Apocrisiarius to the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch and the Archdeacon of Southwark.

For the Archbishop it was his second visit to Southwark in 6 days; last week he opened a new nurture room at Cathedral School in Redcross Way.

The Tur Abdin exhibition is at Southwark Cathedral until Monday 18 October.

The Face of War 2016

We can see the thousands of movies, films, documentaries, newsletters, all saying what they are showing you are the faces of war.

We see and look into the face of war by two pictures.
One is this one.

Secondly, picture of war is this one.

Warning!!!! Do NOT look at these pictures unless you are an adult. Children under 13+15 NOT ALLOWED.

250,000 humans trapped in Aleppo since July. Conditions are appalling, destruction on a massive scale.

Aleppo had an estimated pre-war population of about two million. About one million people are now living in the west, in comparative safety, according to BBC reporters.

Those trapped in the east are living in appalling conditions. The UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien recently described the area as “the apex of horror”.

Food and fuel are running out and basic infrastructure and health care have been obliterated.

The rebels have retaliated by shelling the west – resulting in the deaths of civilians there – but this is on a smaller scale.

Why haven’t people fled east Aleppo?

The main reason why people have not left is that they have become trapped, they told us.

“Some people left before the siege. Now no-one can leave,” says Mohammed, a 31-year-old phonetics teacher at the university in Aleppo.

People have to be careful not to use up their phone batteries because there are only a few hours of electricity each day. However, they are still able to get messages to the outside world.

Dr Ossama, 32, is one of only 30 doctors left treating the 250,000 population of east Aleppo. He describes the dire situation:

“The city is under siege completely.

“No food, no electricity, no pure water, no roads out of Aleppo. The general situation is very dangerous. Every second you can be targeted by shelling or by snipers.”

Fatemah, 26, who is a teacher, says she never expected the siege to happen.

“All my family got out three years ago and went to Egypt and Turkey. I stayed here because I wanted to complete my studies in law at the University of Aleppo.

“We couldn’t imagine we’d be under siege. We didn’t think that the regime would do that. Before the siege, there was food and medicine and we had got used to the bombing. The bombing is more dangerous now.”

The Syrian government and its Russian allies have periodically opened “humanitarian corridors” for civilians to leave through. There is a lot of scepticism from residents of east Aleppo over how safe these routes actually are.

“The regime lied about making humanitarian corridors,” says Abdulkafi, who teaches English at the university.

“If you were with your family, and a robber came and killed your son and daughter and then, after 10 days, he says, ‘Come and be a guest in my house’, would you trust him?

“[President] Assad and the Russians kill civilians and now they say, ‘Come on in’. How can we do that? We prefer to eat the leaves from the trees than go back.”

Abdulkafi has lived in Aleppo for three years. Before the uprising, he was a lecturer in a different town. He attended the demonstrations against President Assad.

“I was accused and ran away to Aleppo. Assad’s regime considers us all terrorists. We are going to die defending ourselves. I am not a fighter but I will fight to the death.”

Some in east Aleppo point out that fleeing their homes and becoming refugees would be a massive undertaking, even if they weren’t trapped.

“A very important reason people are staying here is that they are very poor,” says Fatemah.

“They have no money to rent a house somewhere else or to buy food, or even have the money to leave Syria for Turkey or another country.”

‘This is my land’

Everyone we spoke to also told us that they would continue to refuse to leave Aleppo because it was their home.

“Aleppo is my life and my country. How could I leave it?” asks Fatemah.

“The people here are civilians. They are not fighters – they just want freedom from the regime.”

Mohammed adds: “This is our land and it belongs to us. Assad wants us to be kicked out of our house and is trying to displace us. People want to keep their homes. It is as clear as glass.

“She is really scared and she worries that every day is the last of our lives. Her only wish is to live to see our newborn baby.”

Ismail is a volunteer for the White Helmets, who rescue people from sites which have been bombed. He tells us he will never leave. “I am staying because it is my land and my city. It’s my home.

We have nothing to eat. We will run out of bread and fuel in a month. Our best hope is that the siege is broken. But we are not asking for bread or food we want freedom and social justice.”

“Many people would prefer to die in Aleppo than to leave it,” says Dr Ossama.

“If we go out of Aleppo we will lose our home and our home is our life… and the regime and the Russians would win.”

We interviewed Abdulkafi while he was teaching English to children. He asked Hamad, a boy in his class if he would leave.

“No, of course I will not leave,” Hamad replied. “I have lived here and I will stay. This is my land.”

Like the other people we spoke to, Abdulkafi, who has an eight-month-old daughter, will stay in Aleppo, whatever happens.

“Danger is everywhere – but freedom is not everywhere.

“People stayed here because we first asked for freedom. We can’t leave.

“The blood of the children who died would not forgive us. The people suffering now would not forgive us. To be free is more precious than anything on earth.”
