darius I the great, king of persia (52 Ancestors #2)

April 2, 2016

the mix that makes up me

Theme, Week 2 (Jan. 8-14):  “King”
———————————————————–

The furthest-back ancestors I’m aware of having are, Persian kings.  This per a genealogist in Norway with a humongous database who does research for the Flekkefjord Historical Society.[1]

Thus, the graphic at top my blog here (and the image below):  the Rock of Behistun, famed monument of Darius I the Great (522-486 BC), king of the Persian Empire at the greatest height of its wealth and power, among my 63rd great-grandfathers.

Who woulda thunk?! Certainly not me, let alone anyone else in my family except, my maternal Norwegian Grandma Rosalie, she who endured merry laughter at her assertions that her line connected to, “all the kings & queens of Europe.”

Well, Go Gramma!😉  Because, according to Norsk genealogy records you were 100% right and, then some:  kings & queens worldwide was more like it.

Genealogy discoveries often make history come…

Not for Feminists says SWP.

Last weekend this was a panel held during the Feminism in London Conference.

Unlikely Allies: Religious Fundamentalism and the British State.

This session will overturn many long held perceptions about the British state. In its fight against extremism too many institutions have got into bed with fundamentalists and actively promote their narratives. A growing coalition of  secular, left and minority women’s organisations has successfully challenged them Two cases to be discussed are successful campaigns against Universities UK policies permitting gender segregation and the Law Society’s attempt to promote ‘sharia -compliant wills’. These campaigns are part of a global solidarity movement to defend free speech against fundamentalists of all stripes and are seldom reported in the left and liberal press. This session is your chance to hear the left, feminist case for a solidarity movement against fundamentalism and for secularism.  Organised by One Law…

The Last Thing on Earth Israel Wants Is a Peace Agreement

March 23, 2016

Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay

The Israelis will do anything they can to avoid a peace agreement. That’s the last thing in the world that they want and they will fight forever against having to compromise one inch.

“Israelis” were thinking this way before there was even an Israel. Read The Iron Wall. Sure it was written 100 years ago, but the majority of Israelis are now Jabotinskyists, and Jabotinsky is the intellectual author of the modern Israeli Right and even the fake left Labor Party which looks increasingly Revisionist Zionist itself.

Problem is you cannot really defeat these Muslims. Remember Shamil? Sure, Russia beat him. It only took them 40 years to do so! But the ghost of Shamil kept rising again and again to attack the Bear. You can only defeat these people temporarily. Sure, they will surrender but decades later, they will rise again.

Hubert Humphrey, didn’t lose the 1968 presidential election because he was a bad candidate or ran a bad campaign or wasn’t qualified to be President of the United States. The opposites are true and even though as it turns out 1968 was his best shot at being elected President of the United States, something he had been thinking about at least since 1957 after Dwight Eisenhower was reelected President in a landslide, Vice President Humphrey was caught in a perfect political storm for both the Democratic Party because of how much damaged it did to…

Gentlemen (and Gentlewomen), THIS Is a Study Bible

February 24, 2016

Words on the Word

On the top of my bookshelf at home sits an old, falling-apart, heavily marked-up edition of The New Oxford Annotated Bible. So it has been with anticipation and appreciation that I’ve been able to use the The New Oxford Annotated Bible in its most current, 4th edition.

What the Annotated Bible Is

The Bible text in The New Oxford Annotated Bible is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). I’ve always appreciated this translation’s blend of readability and fidelity to the original languages.

Each biblical book receives a short introduction, covering topics like authorship, date of composition, literary structure, and interpretive helps for reading. (The “guide to reading” that precedes most books is especially helpful when doing a book study or reading through a whole book of the Bible.) The biblical text itself appears in a clear, uncluttered font, with the study notes appearing at the bottom of the page. The brief but…
