Switzerland / Bolivia: The return of Ekeko, the goddess of abundance and prosperity in La Paz.

 

Give us back our ancestors and gods!

         Today the claims of the former colonies have entered a deep phase. The former colonized not simply claim the same social and economic justice, but also their cultural property, and finally their religious soul. Unfairly treated wild, their civilizations were stripped of their rich heritage. Their gods of gold, stone, bronze, wood and ivory were exchanged against glass beads because they were only statues and fetishes païens. The museums of ancient cities still harbor other qu'ignorent secrets former colonized.
Curiously Switzerland is not a former colonial country, but it was one of the countries that has accumulated the most cultural wealth of the colonized countries as it currently hosts their archives and their money.

And if the god of abundance was in Switzerland?

"That may be why Switzerland is what it is, it has the energy of abundance," declared one of the "Ekekos" the oldest of Bolivia visiting the Museum of Archaeology of Bern.
        
The Historical Museum of Bern has since 1929 a stone figurine of 16 cm that Bolivia has just recovered after a long political and diplomatic approach. Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca had come to Switzerland on an official visit to underline the importance for his country of stone figurine that represents Ekeko, god of abundance and prosperity. He had first met Jakob Messerli, Director of Berne Museum to begin the long and difficult negotiations. Because he had to find a profitable solution for both parties. It does not separate a deity of abundance and prosperity without party against! The second was to establish expertise to determine if it is indeed the Ekeko divinity.

Was there an agreement on cultural goods between Switzerland and Bolivia?

        
Foreign Minister of Bolivia met the director of the Federal Office of Culture Isabelle Chassot. They discussed the signing of a bilateral agreement on the transfer of cultural property as exists between Switzerland and Colombia or being signed with Peru !. The next step is expertise that must determine whether there is indeed a representation of the god Ekeko. The magistrate also met the director of the Federal Office of Isabelle Chassot culture. They discussed a possible agreement between the two countries on the transfer of cultural goods. Such an agreement exists with Colombia. and in discussions with Peru.

How is the Bolivian god Ekeko arrival in Bern?

        
In 1858, the ambassador and explorer Johann Jakob von Tschudi reaches to Tiahuana (Bolivia) around Lake Titicaca (which is the border between Peru and Bolivia). He was struck by this stone figurine of Puccara culture. He offers to the old owners of a good Cognac. Poor Bolivia, who had never tasted such a good drink, do not hesitate to give him the only property they owned: the sacred deity of the abundance of Pucara: Ekoka. Since then, the Lake Titicaca will not be the foster mother of Pucara and Bolivia will know only misery and dependence. Johann Jakob von Tschudi was pleased to have acquired a real ancient pre-Columbian tiahuanacota (200 years BC.) for so little (he also had a fetus 7 months mummified Peruvian Huancas). His career was brilliant because he ends as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary in Vienna, Austria in 1882. After his death in 1889, his heirs did not know what to make of Pucara, sell it (we still do not know if it's man or woman) for a loaf of bread in the museum of the city of Bern in 1929.

Welcome to La Paz airport with honors by President Evo Morales!

        
"During the colonial period, our natural resources were continuously looted. Countries of the conquerors who have made their arrival in 1492, some 12 October, on the continent now called America. Cultural property of indigenous peoples were stolen in countries where came the so-called powers, companies, personalities, and especially in Europe (...) In all countries in the past looted cultural property of indigenous peoples, we will ask that they be returned to all the indigenous peoples of the world diplomatically".

An appeal should be heard by many peoples of the Third World !!

United States: This is how the F.B.I. tried to tarnish the reputation of Martin Luther King Jr!

 
"The biggest notorious impostor in the country" according to J.Edgar Hoover

        
Confidential documents have been made public. They demonstrate the methods of J. Edgar Hoover in an attempt to destabilize and discredit the leader of the civil rights movement. J. Edgar Hoover, the all-powerful head of the FBI and Martin Luther King Jr. maintained a stormy relationship. The large parton the F.B.I. called the symbol of the struggle of civil rights 50-60 years in the United States "You’re a great impostor, an evil and vicious impostor", while King was accused of inaction on civil rights and repression of the black population.
         In a letter written in 1964, that which is presented as the most powerful man in the United States has threatened Martin Luther King Jr to undermine his reputation by revealing his extramarital affairs document. And in order to discredit the emancipation of the African-American population movement.

 A Single sheet of yellowed paper…

         It was a single sheet of yellowed paper, typed with typos and supposed to have been sent by a disappointed admirer of the civil rights leader. It involves infidelity pastor in very harsh terms, denouncing "sexual orgies" of "adulterous acts" and "immoral conduct." The author seems to have accurate information, namely identifying an alleged mistress and claiming to have evidence on other routes. He concluded by leaving Luther King a period of thirty-four days, "before your filthy and evil nature is revealed in the country." "It only remains for you to do one thing," the last paragraph. "You know that!"
            When Martin Luther King received the letter, he informed some of his friends we wanted to drive him to suicide. It was also clear that the F.B.I .was responsible for the letter.
        
J.Edgar
Hoover, the homosexual trying to make Martin Luther King Jr. for a sexual pervert!

        
The New York Times Magazine recently published a letter which proves the occult practices of Hoover. In this anonymous letter, the author invites King to pay the greatest attention. "Incline your ear sexual pervert what is to follow”.
         The case will never be revealed. As the Times, in the end, it is the image of the F.B.I. and J. Edgar Hoover that will forever chipped. "The media were fortunately more cautious in 1964. Hoover is never finally managed to discredit the public image of King. Fifty years later, King is considered a model of moral courage and human dignity. Ironically, Hoover is almost universally vilified. in this context, the thing probably the most surprising of this story is not that the FBI tried (to do), but it did not ".

The dreamer assassinated in Memphis, but not his dream!

        
Assassinated in Memphis April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. A few days after his death, the United States will observe a national day of mourning, a first for a black man skin. Moreover, since 1986 the country commemorates the birth (January 15, 1929) activist by a holiday on the third Monday of January.

Israel: If you hate the Muslim Burka, what would you say to the Jewish Frumka?

 
 
Funny Similarity!

        
If religious ultra-Orthodox of the World often hate, they have many more similarities than they think. Jews and Arabs are cousins ​​by descent hate, but what they look like yet?
        
Seeking their differences, I always come across some amazing similarities. Besides that Jews eat "Cacher" and Muslims eat "Halal", there is another incongruity that come to resurrect the Jewish Ultra-Orthodox: wearing full veils called "Frumka" worse than the Burka and Niqab the Chador together!

The hidden face of Eve!

        
In her daily practice of medicine, Egyptian writer, Nawal el Saadawi shot this excellent title essay published in 1982: "The Hidden Face of Eve" which summarizes all the suffering that man inflicts on women in name of a certain religious morality.
        
Ultra-Orthodox Jews who gather at least 10,000 members in Israel nothing, require their women from the age of three years, the port of Frumka.

The Frumka: a full veil that transforms the woman like walking mummy!

        
Today, it is common to find in recent years, particularly in the areas of Beth Shearim Mea and Chemmech, where lived most of the Jews Haredim, many women and girls in Frumka: full black veil!
        
The frumka is also called "Sal" usually in black or gray, whereas before it could be white. Worse than the Arab niqab under the Frumka, Jewish woman carries seven veils, ten skirts and gloves!
        
Non-religious Jews nicknamed them "Talibanim". Women Rabbis, Orthodox Rabbaniots refer to the Torah to impose Frumka. And as if to emphasize the difference with Muslim women, Jewish Frumka there in addition to the front, the yellow star of David, a painful memory for former prisoners of Nazi camps!

Fashion resurrected by Rabbaniot "haredim" Bruria Keren, not so chaste that!

        
In 2007, the foundation of this movement, the Rabbaniot Keren Bruria was imprisoned for having abused her twelve children, with the help of her husband. Keren was poursuided for twenty-five counts, including child abuse. Members of the ultra-Orthodox sect are regularly pinned to cases of pedophilia, incest or forced marriage.
        
Instead of being shocked, the haredi community has chosen another rabbaniot name Bracha Benizri, who leds the "Keter Malchut (Royal Crown)" movement whose mission is supposed to fight against the "decadence" of the Jewish Orthodox world. "Slowly but surely, more and more women adhere to my principles", she says. She has recruited new followers and fashion was adopted by the Lev Tahor community, moved to Canada and headed by Shlomo Elbames. The Hardims or "God-fearing", wish to apply strictly the rules of modesty ("Tzniut" in Hebrew) of the Talmud and "hasten the coming of the Messiah": an old Sephardic tradition four hundred years old based in Jerusalem. the sectarian movement Keter Malchut however has approximately 10,000 members throughout Israel. A considerably higher than the hundred followers identified by religious authorities, who strongly reject this practice number.

What does the rabbinical council?
 
        
Not only rabbinical authorities condemn the wearing of Frumka, they condemn and prohibit them altogether. In 2010, the Rabbinical Council issued a decree banning the first port of frumka. "We have the Torah and we have a tradition, and these things have not been authorized or required, said Rabbi Shmuel Pappenheim, a representative of conservative Orthodox stream. We see a real danger and an exaggeration that leads to a just result opposite to that desired: serious transgressions".
        
At a time when the world is struggling against the Muslim backwardness, this kind of sectarian practices does not hardly honor Judaism, Zionism or even a fundamental principle of the Tanakh and the moral values ​​of the Jewish society, the bed of antisemitism?
