15 Sep 2012

Thousands of Lebanese greeted Pope Benedict XVI as he headed on his Popemobile to the Baabda Presidential Palace where he met with the country's top political and Muslim religious leaders on Saturday, September 15.
Crowds of people were waving both the Vatican and Lebanese flags and cheering as he passed with confetti swirling in the air.
In the Beirut suburb of Baabda where there was a festive atmosphere on the streets, the Pope first met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and his wife.
The Pope also met with Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Najib Miqati.

Pope Benedict calls on Lebanon to be a model of peace and religious freedom in the tumultuous Middle East.
During a speech, the Pope expressed sympathy with youth in Syria. The pope said he admired their courage, adding this is a time for Christians and Muslims to come together "so as to put an end to violence and war."
He also called for interfaith unity in order to end violence in the Middle East.
The visit of the Pope to Lebanon is aimed at bridging the gap between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East.
The pontiff, who arrived on Friday for a three-day visit, praised Lebanon as an example of “coexistence and respectful dialogue between Christians and their brethren of other religions” when he arrived at the airport.
Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah also welcomed the Pontiff's arrival in Lebanon, describing the event as "historic and extraordinary.”

Cairo, Egypt | April 4, 2012

Interim leader of Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church Bishop Bakhomious, who temporarily replaced late Pope Shenouda, met with Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Shiekh Ahmed al-Tayyib on Wednesday, April 4, at Al-Azhar headquarters in Cairo, where they expressed their rejection of the constitution-writing panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution which is dominated by Islamists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood.

They stressed that the current panel doesn’t offer fair representation of all Egyptians, particularly the minorities.

Bakhomious said that the democracy doesn’t mean the dictatorship of the majority.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Bishop Bakhomious, Coptic Orthodox Church interim leader:
"Democracy is not the dictatorship of the majority. The governing of the people, which is democracy, means involving all categories of society including the very small minorities."

For his part, Dr. Mahmoud Azab, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar's adviser on dialogue showed complete agreement with Bishop Bakhomious and warned that if the constitution committee did not represent all Egyptians including minorities, the nation's unity would be "in danger".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Mahmoud Azab, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar's adviser on dialogue:
"The Egyptian people must agree politically to the country's common good. Political agreement, like Bishop Bakhomious said, doesn’t mean the dictatorship of the majority but it means that the majority run the affairs while the minorities have their weight, including all forms of intellectual, religious and sectarian minorities. This is a matter of agreement between us and Egypt's Church and between average civilian Muslims and the Christians. Otherwise, the nation's ship is in danger."

Bishop Bakhomious denied that there was a deal between Al-Azhar and the Church to withdraw from the panel.

The Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt announced its withdrawal from the panel few days after the withdrawal of Al-Azhar, the highest religious authority in the Sunni Muslim world, claiming the panel is illegitimate.

Egyptian Court is scheduled to rule on the validity of the controversial constitution-writing panel on April 10.

Dozens of Egyptian journalists and members of “Journalists for Constitution” movement gathered outside the Journalists Syndicate headquarters in Cairo on Tuesday, April 3, protesting against the constitution-Writing panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution, demanding the Syndicate Council to withdraw from the panel due to its alleged illegitimacy for being formed by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
Protestors raised signs and shouted statements against the panel and the Muslim Brotherhood that dominate it, urging their syndicate to boycott it.
However, some other journalists see that withdrawal from the panel is not a solution and that they should have representatives in the panel to advocate the freedom of journalism.
The protesting journalists demanded the chairman of their syndicate to announce withdrawal from the controversial panel.
Protestors shouted statements, calling for the freedom of expression and the freedom of the press. They said they would not allow the MB to have control over the freedom of the press in Egypt.
It is not only the journalists who rejected the panel but many secularists as well as leftist and liberal parties pulled out from the panel.
Egypt’s Supreme Constitution Court also announced withdrawal of its representative from the panel, raising more doubt over its legitimacy.
The court is expected to rule in the lawsuit over the legitimacy of the panel on April 10.

Jennyfer Ayat : SLAVE IN KIREKA'S STO...
Kampala, Uganda
By Mais Istanbuli
20 Feb 2012

Kireka-Kampala township-Uganda-East Africa-February 26th-2013
Following on the footsteps of great many people before her, Jennyfer Ayat made a daring and courageous decision to escape the controls of sexual enslavement or perhaps even death, from the followers of warlord Joseph Kony by braving the long march of Gulu Walk. It seems ironic when in essence Jennyfer Ayat is escaping one form of brutal slavery for another.
Over the past twenty years the echoes of pain injected by the Kony terror, have caused women like Jennyfer Ayat, of Uganda to make hard and testing choices to either live in constant fear of death for themselves, their children and loved ones, or harvest bravery from the fountain sitting deep within to escape and live in another form of fear. One where the desperation of making an exodus of living in poverty and in slavery has become invisible to corporations, employing workers at the lowest, most discriminatory wages, robbing them of their human rights and the fundamental freedom to choose, let alone their voiceless whisper vindicating their right of a just deserved human dignity.
It is shocking to observe that children born in this state of bondage; continue to live a life journey of captivity and slave labor, long after their parents’ escape from the Kony violations against humanity. A young 36 year old Jennyfer Ayat carrying a hammer on her shoulder, as if this chunk of iron embellished with a long, heavy pole made of rough wood has become Jennyfer’s best play mate and soul companion. The unimaginable strength of Jennyfer Ayat’s body bears resemblance to a rare piece of priceless sculpture: but this is not the romanticism of African life, this is an image evoking a story of human survival and absolute determination; the cruel reality of working for virtually naught, for each jerry-can loaded with crushed stones and carried airborne by the strong in the quarry, is worth a mere 100 Ugandan shillings. Considering there are some 2250 Ugandan shillings to a dollar in conversion, and many hours of hardship labor to a filled jerry-can, how many more veins must bleed dry for every dignified being to continue living under a dollar a day, while corporations rip offensive benefits through such human abuse and exploitation?
Jennyfer Ayat is seen on many occasions with hammer in hand pounding the rock, her frame is small but her strength is heroic. There are no traces of hatred in her expression, but a breed of devotion that is disturbing to the more fortunate audience, exuding an acceptance of life as it is, and as it will always be. But, it is in Jennyfer’s strength of spirit and will to survive that has kept her and her family breathing their harsh journey. Each frame illustrates the Inferno of an ongoing documentary project called “BUKEDDE”, a word in Luganda, the main local language of Uganda, which means “ONE MORE DAY” to identify that “it is morning again”. It captures the core of Jennyfer’s character and high moral fiber, her moments of tenderness with her little adopted baby, Ivonne whose aura radiates a Madonna like semblance. She cradles the child gently inside their humble home, illuminated by soft candle light in the cold African nightfall. The compositions also encapsulate the private moments of prayer with her son, both clutching their only rosary, recorded through the faint light radiating from a set of azure candles. These are intimate moments she shared; giving every one of us the only thing she has left to give, her self existence.
This moving photographic journey introduces us to Jennyfer, a strong African woman; showing glimpses of her daily life, her hopes and dreams, the reverence and aspirations for her precious children. The moments captured, display the altruism of unconditional love, the importance of small details in life, the sharing of work scented with nobility, and the intimate exchange of profound glances in prayer. The daily trivia of Jennyfer’s life in Kireka are but a brief preview into the depths of her soul captured through the eyes and the lenses, amidst a rollercoaster of emotions as witness of such narrative. They speak of hardship, fear and faith and highlight the coldhearted blindness of governments, institutions and corporations.
This is “BUKEDDE”, it is morning again…
The pictures shows Erik, the stone quarry "master boss", where Jennyfer Ayat and hundreds of slaves live in an inhuman conditions.
