King Mohammed Thanks GCC for Constant Support to Moroccos Territorial Integrity

Riyadh – King Mohammed VI expressed on Wednesday, his pride and appreciation for the constant support GCC countries have been giving to Morocco for the defense of its territorial integrity.“The question of the Moroccan Sahara has always been the cause of Gulf countries as well. And this is hardly surprising,” the Sovereign said in a speech delivered, Wednesday in Riyadh, at the opening ceremony of the Morocco-GCC Summit.The Monarch recalled that in 1975, delegations from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates took part in the Green March for the recovery of our southern provinces, adding that the participants included “my brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, who was 14 years old at the time.” The King added that since then, the Gulf States have spared no effort to uphold Morocco’s just cause and defend the kingdom’s sovereignty over its entire territory, noting that this position was reaffirmed during the recent crisis with the UN Secretary-General.“Only this time, the situation is serious. It is also unprecedented in the history of this artificial dispute over the Moroccan Sahara”, the Sovereign noted, underlining that what “we are witnessing, in fact, is a proxy war, in which the Secretary-General of the United Nations is being used to infringe on Morocco’s legitimate, historical rights in its Sahara, through biased statements and unacceptable behavior regarding the Moroccan Sahara.”“This should not come as a surprise, for there is something that might explain it all! Indeed, what can one expect from the Secretary-General when he himself admits that he is not fully informed on the Moroccan Sahara issue – nor is he on many others? He is unaware of this issue’s intricate developments and its real background,” the Monarch said, wondering: What can the Secretary-General do while he is a hostage in the hands of some of his aides and advisers, to whom he delegates the responsibility of managing a number of important issues and settles for merely implementing the proposals they submit to him.It is a fact that some of these aides have national agendas. They are politically motivated and they serve other parties’ interests without regard for their duty, as staff members of the United Nations Organization, to act impartially and objectively – an obligation that lies at the very heart of UN action, the King pointed out.“The Secretary-General, whom I personally esteem, is only human after all. He cannot be fully cognizant of all issues on the United Nations’ agenda, nor find solutions to all crises and conflicts around the world,” the Monarch added.“I wish to emphasize, in this respect, that Morocco does not have a problem with the United Nations Organization, of which it is an active member; nor does it have a problem with the Security Council, whose members it respects and with whom it is constantly in touch. Morocco has a problem with the Secretary-General, and more particularly with some of his aides, because of their hostile positions towards my country,” the Sovereign said, recalling that as regards this artificial dispute over the territorial integrity, Morocco has always liaised with its traditional friends, which include the United States of America, France and Spain, and with Arab sister nations, especially the Gulf States, as well as African countries, such as Senegal, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire and Gabon.“We have a problem because of frequently changing governments in some of these countries,” the King said, noting that with every change, significant efforts have to be exerted to introduce new officials to all aspects of the Moroccan Sahara issue and to make them aware of its real implications. They have to be reminded that this dispute, which has been going on for more than forty years, has caused many casualties, that its material cost has been considerable and that the Sahara issue is the cause of all Moroccans, and not just the Monarchy’s.The hostile plots which seek to undermine “our stability are continuing; they will not stop. Several countries in the eastern part of the Arab world have been torn apart and destroyed; today, it is the western part which is targeted, and the most recent of these conspiracies has been hatched against the territorial integrity of your second home, Morocco,” the Monarch underlined.There is nothing new in this. Morocco’s opponents are using every means, directly or otherwise, as part of their thinly-veiled maneuvers, the Sovereign stressed, adding that depending on the circumstances, they try to delegitimize Morocco’s presence in its Sahara, promote the independence option and the separatist thesis, or undermine the autonomy initiative, which the international community has described as serious and credible.As the plotting continues, the month of April, which coincides with the Security Council meetings on the Sahara issue, has become a bogeyman used against Morocco and a tool to exert pressure on my country at times, and blackmail it at others, King Mohammed VI noted.With MAP read more

Major carriers state AGs will work to combat robocalls

NEW YORK — Major phone companies are telling the country’s state attorneys general that they will do more against robocalls.It’s the latest step from government and industry to combat the growing problem . Americans get nearly 5 billion calls from scammers, telemarketers, debt collectors and others every month. The agreement echoes some steps already taken by regulators and Congress, which is working on anti-robocall bills .The state AGs say phone companies will offer call-blocking tools free to all but traditional landline users. They will also block calls for everyone at the network level. The Federal Communications Commission has called on phone companies to block unwanted calls and expects carriers not to charge. It also calls on them to make sure caller ID numbers are real, not faked.The agreement doesn’t have a timeline.Tali Arbel, The Associated Press read more

Without Indwell you dont know where wed be

Chris, Bill and Brent don’t know where they would be if not for Indwell.Chris, who asked that his last name not be used, had lost everything. He was living under a bridge in the middle of November a few years ago before moving into a shelter and other social housing where drug use was rampant.Indwell offered him a second chance.Indwell is a social housing provider that refers to itself as a “Christian charity that creates affordable housing communities that support people seeking health, wellness and belonging.”Chris moved into Indwell’s Rudy Hulst Commons in Hamilton when the building opened in 2016.He said living at Indwell is “like Hawaii, it’s paradise” in comparison to his previous living situations.“I was homeless, in a shelter,” he said. “Things are just going really well since I came in here.“The staff is always there for you if you need them. It’s just good here, it’s very nice.”Chris now lives in a one bedroom apartment with bathroom and kitchen. It’s furnished with a couch, TV and bed. The upgraded space, which is expected to cost $7.6 million to complete, will have 32 bachelor apartments.There is little to no natural light in any of the rooms that were previously bars or clubs. Renovations will include removing a number of the walls and adding in new windows.Indwell keeps pieces of the original buildings to add into the finished product, like the stained glass windows at Hambleton Hall. Plans are to keep the handrails and square decorative glass from the Norfolk Inn to display in the finished space.Indwell is inviting the public to tour the old Norfolk Inn before the major renovation begins.The Last Call event on April 27 will allow the public to take a peek at the former bars as well as at some of the upstairs residential units.“It’s one thing to hear about it, another to see it,” Teresa Howe, community engagement manager, said citing the extension cords running to apartments that did not have electricity, and broken windows that were never repaired.Indwell is still in the process of helping some of the people living in the space find homes.“It’s been difficult to find homes for 40 people in Simcoe,” said Howe.Two thirds of the people living there have moved out, but they are still looking for spaces for the rest.When the project is completed, the housing at the Norfolk Inn will be more involved than others. They plan on providing one free meal a day to the residents. The community kitchen will be installed in an accessible place for all tenants to access.“We are going to have professional support staff on site, nurses, peer support, addictions worker, food security,” said Howe.Indwell staff hold office hours open to any of the tenants in the building. Chris said he takes his mail down during office hours to have the staff help make sure he understands what his letters are saying to avoid scams.Indwell has an interview process, which involves figuring out if someone will use and benefit from the staff support before deciding if the person is a good match. The staff does weekly room checks.Every tenant pays rent based on the Ontario Disability Support Program suggested housing allowance, which currently sits around $500. If a tenant is employed but sitting below the poverty line officials use a formula to calculate an appropriate price for rent.Indwell hopes the downtown Simcoe building, still awaiting its new name, will be open in the fall of next year.The Last Call runs from 1-4 p.m. on April 27. Tours start at the Norfolk Inn and end at Hambleton Hall on John Street.astaylor@postmedia.com Ashley Taylor / Simcoe Reformer Ashley Taylor / Simcoe Reformer The one bedroom apartments at the Commons are built with sliding doors between each room. The doors can be left open to give the apartment a bigger feeling, or closed to create individual rooms.Chris now volunteers at the Good Shepherd Food Bank in Hamilton multiple mornings throughout the week, starting around 5 a.m.“I had nothing, so I like to give back,” he said about volunteering.“Without Indwell you don’t know where we’d be, on the street, or in jail, or anything like that,” said Chris. “They do good for everybody.”Another Hamilton Indwell tenant, asking to go by Bill, has seen improvements in his health, and personal skills since moving into Perkins Centre in 2011.Bill lives in a bachelor unit, which includes a bed, kitchenette, and bathroom.“My health has been so much better,” Bill said. He has had more consistent access to food and is using the provided community kitchen.“I have so much respect for Indwell, I love them so much,” he said.Both of the buildings in Hamilton are clean and bright.One of their main focuses is making sure the shared spaces and apartments have lots of natural light to help with mental health. Shared spaces, such as community kitchens and laundry rooms, are strategically placed on higher floors rather than basement areas for the comfort of the tenants.Brent, who has been living in a one-bedroom apartment at Hambleton Hall in Simcoe for two and a half years, says the transition to Indwell has changed his life.Before he came to Indwell, Brent was living with his mother to care for her before she passed away. After she died, he and his brother sold the house, leaving Brent needing to find a place to live.“My brother got me in here and that’s the best thing that’s happened to me. I needed the space to have to myself, this gives me a lot of that,” said Brent.A common theme between the three tenants is that they are not sure where they would be without Indwell.“In a way I’m very fortunate to be here, because I don’t know where I’d be if my brother didn’t get me in here,” Brent said. “We renovated the house and it sold fast, so I’m lucky to be where I am.” Hambleton Hall also has a short-term housing unit on the lower floor, with five apartments, to provide emergency temporary housing. The short-term unit was requested by Norfolk County, because there is no other homeless shelter currently in the county. The unit has its own entrance for the guests to separate it from the long-term housing, with alarmed doors to separate the programs.Short-term guests are able to stay for a maximum of 30 days while they work closely with Indwell staff to find housing within the community.The building in Simcoe is also equipped with eight barrier free units for tenants with mobility issues. These apartments feature things such as lower counters and accessible plugs.The kitchen at Hambleton Hall is big and bright, with multiple ovens, fridges, and sinks. While each of the units has its own small kitchenette, this larger space is meant to bring people together for gatherings, like the kitchen in any home.Church Out Serving runs the community gardens outside of Hambleton Hall. Two of the garden beds can be used by tenants, and the others are for the church to grow and harvest produce for food banks. The tenants help with the gardening and it gives them a chance to give back to the community.Two of Indwell’s buildings in Hamilton, Perkins Centre and Parkdale Landing, are very similar to the project they are working on at the old Norfolk Inn on Norfolk Street South in Simcoe. All three of these buildings started as bars, clubs, or taverns before Indwell took over.The completed buildings include space for housing, community space, classrooms, storage, and commercial rental space and can barely be recognized from the photos of the establishments before the renovations began.Leah Logan, program manager at Hambleton Hall, spoke about Indwell creating a community for every resident.“We know that everyone needs a village, everyone needs supports around them. We become part of that support system for our tenants,” said Logan.“If we can build a community where when there’s a crisis people are going to have your back, then we’re creating a space that’s not only safe, but open to you thriving in your health and wellness with no judgement,” she added.The Norfolk Inn is in need of a major facelift if it hopes to house that thriving community.The building, which currently holds a musky scent, used to house multiple establishments including bars and an exotic dancer club.

The decorative square glass that is hoping to be saved for the finished Indwell building can be seen on the right. Indwell will be holding a Last Call event at the Norfolk Inn in downtown Simcoe on April 27 from 1 – 4 p.m. Members of the public will be able to tour the former hotel. Tenants at Hambleton Hall have started growing plants to be transferred to the community garden later this spring. read more

General Assembly President announces meeting dates for UN SecretaryGeneral candidates

Each candidate will be offered a two-hour meeting slot to present his or her candidature, and UN Member States will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with each person, Assembly President Mogens Lykketoft said at a press briefing this afternoon at Headquarters in New York on the selection and appointment process. “I think this is quite historic and potentially game-changing for the way the Secretary-General is appointed,” said Mr. Lykketoft. The General Assembly President noted that he sent a letter yesterday to all UN Member States informing them of his intention to begin the meetings with all candidates who had been formally presented by that time. “The informal dialogues or meetings will be as open and transparent as possible, with the considerable interest from the global public and civil society being duly kept in mind,” the letter states. Thus far, six candidates have been officially presented: Srgian Kerim of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia; Vesna Pusic of Croatia; Igor Luksic of Montenegro; Danilo Turk of Slovenia; Irina Bokova of Bulgaria; and Natalia Gherman of the Republic of Moldova. According to the UN Charter, the Secretary-General is appointed by the General Assembly following the recommendation of the Security Council. The General Assembly President, along with Security Council President Samantha Power, issued a letter to Member States on 15 December 2015 to begin soliciting candidates and to set in motion the selection and appointment process. In the briefing today, Mr. Lykketoft noted that each candidate will be asked to provide a short vision statement of up to 2,000 words in advance, which his office will circulate to Member States and the public. Asked whether there were any regulations about regional rotations for the Secretary-General post, Mr. Lykketoft said there was no “hard and fast rule.” Of course, a group could argue in favour of regional rotations, he said, noting that of the five regional groups, the Central European group was the only one that had not yet been able to select a Secretary-General. Another group might argue that this was an opportune occasion for selecting the first female Secretary-General, he added. Answering a question about the vetting process in the Security Council, Mr. Lykketoft said he was unaware of what the final procedures would be in the Council, but he expected that each and every candidate would be presented in the General Assembly as part of the process he had outlined. He encouraged all Member States to bring candidates forward. “There is an opportunity for the membership to have much more influence than before,” he said, adding that it would be “difficult” to see the Security Council “coming up later with a different name.” In response to a question on whether he had met with any of the candidates, Mr. Lykketoft said that he had already met with all of the current candidates on different occasions, and that as late as this week, he had met with three of the six. In addition, answering a question on whether candidates would disclose the amount of money spent to support their candidacy in their campaigns, the General Assembly President stressed that it was not “within his competence” to write rules and regulations about such matters. However, he encouraged reporters to raise such questions with the candidates themselves, and also expressed hope that the General Assembly and the Security Council would “find a balance” to get the best candidate elected. The next Secretary-General will assume the role in January 2017. Traditionally, the UN chief has severed a five-year term, which can be renewed by Member States. read more

Hate speech xenophobia and resentment are unrelentingly on the rise across Europe

first_imgHate speech, xenophobia, and resentment are ‘unrelentingly’ on the rise across Europe The annual report of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance paints a bleak picture of the levels of tolerance currently being seen across the EU. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Jun 22nd 2018, 3:34 PM 148 Comments https://jrnl.ie/4086313 Friday 22 Jun 2018, 3:34 PM 15,896 Views Share43 Tweet Email Screaming protesters manifest their displeasure with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a campaign event in August 2017. The text on the band reads Voting for the CDU is voting for unlimited immigration by bogus asylum seekers. Source: DPA/PA ImagesHATE SPEECH AND xenophobic populism is still very much on the rise across Europe, according to a new report.The annual report of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) suggests that populist rhetoric is still fostering resentment to an ‘unrelenting’ extent across the EU.It suggests that the continuing migration seen into EU countries from troublespots around the globe, together with the consequent challenges of integration, which has led to that rhetoric, has now ‘blended into a hatred of non-nationals or minorities’.It also suggests that the pervasiveness of social media has ‘encouraged self-segregation and deepened social divides’.“While acknowledging the difficulties European states encounter, we still have to encourage them to change their narrative to a more balanced and fact-based discourse that emphasises the positive contribution of well-governed migration, in particular by underlining the opportunities and resources migrants can bring,” said chairperson of the ECRI Jean-Paul Lehners.‘Gradually becoming acceptable’The report states that Islamophobia is ‘gradually becoming acceptable’ in the discourse and media of many European countries.Antisemitic hatred is still widespread across the continent, it states, as is discrimination against Roma, Travellers, and people of African descent.Regarding homo- and transphobia, the 2017 report presents a bit more of a mixed bag, with “progress in some countries offering greater protection for LGBT persons and problems in others where they still experience unacceptably high levels of stigma, intolerance, hatred and discrimination”.The ECRI’s previous recommendations, aimed at improving legislation in Council of Europe member states with a view to combating racism and discrimination, have not yet been fully implemented by many EU states, including Ireland.Just 20 of the 47 members of the Council have ratified Protocol 12 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which has as its aim a general prohibition on discrimination.

Vancouver investigator uncovers outofstate child porn cases

first_imgA Vancouver investigator uncovered child pornography cases that led to the arrest of two men living in Tennessee and New York.Maggie Holbrook, one of four computer forensic investigators with the Vancouver Police Department’s Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit, was investigating local child pornography cases when she made the long-distance discoveries. On Dec. 18, police served a search warrant at a Battle Ground man’s house in the 900 block of Northeast Second Avenue, seizing digital evidence of child pornography. Among the evidence was an image of a girl that Holbrook believed had been recently created. Sgt. John Chapman, who supervised the Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit for three years, explained that tens of thousands of the same images are widely circulated. When a new one pops up, it points to a new case of abuse. Using a digital fingerprint of the image, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children determined that the image was, indeed, new. Holbrook linked the image to an IP address belonging to Damion Faulkner in Hermitage, Tenn. She packaged up the evidence and sent it to the Nashville Police Department, which launched an investigation of Faulkner. They served a search warrant at his house, finding evidence of child pornography, and arrested him Jan. 3. He is accused of circulating images of a 5-year-old girl — a daughter of one of his relatives — around the Internet. He is in jail with a $300,000 bond. Holbrook “saved kids’ lives in the sense that they were being victimized at the hands of this sex offender,” Chapman said. “We’ve certainly stopped the abuse right now. That’s a credit to her.”last_img read more

Rolling Stones Latest Cover Terrorist Vs Rockstar

first_imgOur hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens. –THE EDITORSIn the meantime, here’s a range of outlets that have weighed in on the cover:Boston.comThe Boston Marathon bomber is a rock star, says ‘Rolling Stone’The New YorkerThe Inconvenient Image of Dzhokhar TsarnaevChristian Science MonitorRolling Stone cover: Are stores going too far in pulling the magazine?USA TodayDon’t stone ‘Rolling Stone’ over Boston bomber coverSlateRolling Stone’s Boston Bomber Cover Is BrilliantHuffington PostRolling Stone Boston Bomber Cover Story: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Image Stirs Controversy, Boycotts One of the more striking elements of Rolling Stone’s latest cover story image is how Dzhokhar Tsarnaev looks like the kid next door. In a sense it has achieved a goal magazine publishers either embrace or run away from, attracting loud and impassioned criticism which leads to an enormous amount of coverage in mainstream and social media. Some of the discussion focuses on giving an accused murderer the celebrity treatment—an aspect that’s not to be downplayed. Rolling Stone does have a dual cover story approach that alternates between its celebrity coverage and more serious investigative pieces, but it appears many only remember its celeb covers. At least that’s what CVS, Walgreens and other retailers have decided when they banned the issue from their newsstands. The rest of the debate reminds us that the cover is an alarming, journalistic, but honest, depiction of a face of terrorism we’re not used to seeing. A microcosm of this conversation is happening now at FOLIO:’s Facebook page. Here’s Rolling Stone’s statement in reply to all the coverage:last_img read more

State indicates whether the program is listed under “programs and features” in the Control Panel and the Apps listing on Windows 10 devices.Right-click on any program and select “Hide from Programs and Features List” to hide it in those interfaces.Mark multiple entries at once to run the state changing operation on all of them at once.Note: While the program is no longer listed in the Control Panel or Apps listing in Settings, it is still listed in other locations such as on the hard drive or in the Start Menu.The main idea behind Hide from Uninstall List is to prevent the removal of the program on the system using default system tools.The only other option provided is to hide programs and features. This removes Apps & Features from the Settings app on Windows 10 and empties the entire Programs and Features listing of the Control Panel.Changes that you make are applied instantly. A click on the Programs and Features link in the program interface opens the Control Panel applet for verification.What is the purpose of the program?Experienced users may wonder why someone would want to use a program like Hide from Uninstall List. It is clear that it is not used to fully protect a program from being uninstalled as there are multiple ways to remove programs other than using the Apps listing or the Programs and Features listing.I think it is designed for users who share the PC with others or are supervised. It provides some level of protection from detection and removal. While that is not perfect, it may do for some users.Closing WordsHide from Uninstall List is a program that some users may like. The majority of Windows users may not see much of a use for a program of its kind though probably.Now You: What is your take on the program?Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 2 votes Software Name Hide from Uninstall ListOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://www.sordum.org/11081/hide-from-uninstall-list-v1-0/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Chromiumbased Edge Linux support and IE integration

first_imgChromium-based Edge: Linux support and IE integration by Martin Brinkmann on March 29, 2019 in Internet Explorer – 54 commentsMicrosoft’s upcoming Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge has not been unveiled officially but leaks give us a good idea of what to expect from the new browser.Some features were overlooked in the initial reviews. When Microsoft launched the Edge browser, it made it a Windows 10 exclusive. While you could gain access to Microsoft Edge using a Virtual Machine, exclusivity meant that Edge did not get off to a good start.Windows 10 users could not sync data between Edge on Windows 10 and their mobile applications. This changed with the release of Microsoft Edge for mobile devices. The decision to release the browser for non-Microsoft operating systems but not the still-supported Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 did not sit well with customers who were still using these operating systems.The new Chromium-based Edge will be available for other platforms according to Microsoft. The company mentioned Mac OS X specifically but it is very likely that it will also be available for Linux.Probably the best indicator that Microsoft Edge will be available for Linux is found in Microsoft Edge itself. Load edge://flags and look at the compatibility information that is displayed next to each experiment.You find Linux listed there for many of the experiments and not only Windows or Mac. Microsoft did edit these, as you don’t find Chrome OS listed there or mobile operating systems.The listing is an indicator but no verification; there is none at the time. It is still up to Microsoft to release the new Edge for Linux. Chance is good that this is going to happen.Internet Explorer Tab inside EdgeThe second feature that slipped by initially is integration of Internet Explorer in Microsoft Edge. Windows Latest discovered the flag “Enable IE Integration” under Experiments which “enables hosting Internet Explorer in a tab”.The feature does not work currently as it appears to be in development at this time. The most likely explanation is that it may be used to load individual sites in Internet Explorer’s rendering engine in the Microsoft Edge browser.The current Microsoft Edge browser comes with an option to open a web page in Internet Explorer. You need to select Menu > More Tools > Open in Internet Explorer to do so. The new option, provided that it will load the web page in a tab in Microsoft Edge, would be more comfortable as you would not have to juggle between two browser windows as everything would happen in the Edge window.Now You: What do you expect from the new Microsoft Edge browser?SummaryArticle NameChromium-based Edge: Linux support and IE integrationDescriptionThe upcoming Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge may support Linux and integration of Internet Explorer.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Police auction lost and stolen items

first_imgStolen and lost laptops, sunglasses and mobile phones were among dozens of items auctioned off by police in Famagusta this week, it was reported on Friday.According to CNA, Famagusta police spokesman Andreas Constantinou said the loot also included men’s watches, items of jewellery, bicycles, mopeds and diving equipment.“The items auctioned were property found by members of the public from various police stations in the district which have remained unclaimed by their owners,” he said.“Property was also auctioned off from criminal cases, such as burglaries and thefts or cases of illegal possession of items whose owners have not been identified. ”According to Constantinou most of the items were sold and there had been quite a lot of interest.He did not reveal how much money was made.Constantinou said before anything is auctioned, the items are posted at police stations in a last attempt to find the owners following normal investigations into each separate case. “There is a double and a triple check to try and find the owners first” he added.The only thing he would reveal about the proceeds was that according to regulations, 50 per cent of the cash would go to the treasury, 25 per cent to a police fund, and the remaining amount would be shared as a reward between the people who turned in the lost property provided that one quarter of the value of the item sold exceeds €34.Auctions are held regularly when unclaimed lost and stolen property stacks up.You May LikeTheDayTradingRoomThis Main Coon Cat Is Setting Records And Only Coon Cat Owners Know WhyTheDayTradingRoomUndoRealtor.comI Bought a House With a Pool, and Wow, Was I in Over My Head!Realtor.comUndoZipHearingSwiss-Engineered Bluetooth® Hearing Aids Hailed as “Game-Changing” | ZipHearingZipHearingUndo Limassol police investigating attempted murderUndoFilms and food at RialtoUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Technical Committee to examine icons stored in Kyrenia castle Updated adds Mufti

first_imgThe Bicommunal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage decided on Thursday to visit Kyrenia castle in the north to examine the storage conditions of a large number of Greek Orthodox icons and other religious artefacts, kept there since 1974.Speaking to CNA, Takis Hadjidemetriou, the Greek Cypriot Head of the Technical Committee, said the Committee could get involved in the restoration of damaged icons, if deemed necessary.The issue was discussed on Thursday during the regular meeting of the Technical Committee and according to Hadjidemetriou, it was decided to pay a visit to the castle to form an opinion regarding the problem after concerns were raised about their storage. He added consultations were ongoing to set the date.Asked about the possibility of involving the Technical Committee in the restoration, in case it was deemed necessary, he said “this is within our areas of competence.”He added that the Committee had restored many icons so far, in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme “but first we have to see their condition and what the real problem is.”Hadjidemetriou also said that the Technical Committee paid a visit to the castle’s storage areas many years ago and found the icons to be in good condition. On their next visit, they would be able to compare.Asked about the possible return of icons to the Church of Cyprus, Hadjidemetriou said this was not part of the Technical Committee’s mandate but was connected to political developments in the Cyprus problem.He said finally that the members of the Technical Committee had no difficulty in reaching a common understanding and approach over the matter.Meanwhile Turkish Cypriot Mufti Talip Atalay said he supports the return of icons and religious artifacts to their rightful owners, the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus.According to an announcement issued by the Religious Track of the Cyprus Peace Process, “the icons in  Kyrenia castle belong to the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus and we will support their return to them.”Bishop Porfyrios of Neapolis, head of the Synodical Committee on Monuments and Religious Artifacts of the Church welcomed the investigation into the icons that was published by Turkish Cypriot Havadis newspaper.He also welcomed the Mufti’s statements but expressed sadness and concern about the status of the icons as was reported.“We deeply regret to learn from the results of the investigation published by the Turkish Cypriot paper Havadis that our priceless religious heirlooms have been kept under improper and insecure conditions in the warehouses of the Castle,” said Bishop Porfyrios, according to the announcement.Atalay reiterated his belief that their “proper storage, maintenance and protection are not only a must but a duty. Religious beliefs and religious places of everyone should be protected irrespective of where they are.”“Just like we expect the assets that belong to the Muftiate/Evqaf to be properly maintained, protected and preserved by the Greek Cypriot authorities, Turkish Cypriot authorities should do the same to the assets of the Christians of Cyprus,” he said.“We should all preserve our religious and cultural heritage in the most proper way without ignoring the needs and sensitivities of the rightful owners,” he said.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
