Alien Account

I haven’t visited my blog’s email account for a few weeks because the current regime of working makes me dread the concept of email. Now I’ve finally checked and I’m horrified. The email address was discovered by a bunch of really intense anti-Semites who have been sending me bigoted garbage several times a day. I thought I had accidentally broke into some weirdo’s account when I saw a bunch of subject lines informing me of “rabbis taking ritualistic baths in infant blood.”

  1. Have you heard of this book? Sounds like something you would love:

    “The Reconstruction of Nations: Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, 1569–1999” by Timothy Snyder

    // Modern nationalism in northeastern Europe has often led to violence and then reconciliation between nations with bloody pasts. In this fascinating book, Timothy Snyder traces the emergence of Polish, Ukrainian, Lithuanian, and Belarusian nationhood over four centuries, discusses various atrocities (including the first account of the massive Ukrainian-Polish ethnic cleansings of the 1940s), and examines Poland’s recent successful negotiations with its newly independent Eastern neighbors, as it has channeled national interest toward peace.


  2. I cannot believe such has become possible, so happy. Hope Trump or somebody help us with more deals:

    // Arab League Rejects Palestinian Resolution Condemning Israel-UAE Peace Deal

    The organization representing 22 Arab countries spread across the Middle East and North Africa voted down the resolution sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA)

    The latest Arab League’s decision exposes the isolation that Palestinian leadership faces in the neighborhood.

    “After a three-hour debate, some Arab countries refused to include [a] statement condemning [the UAE] for abandoning Arab decisions. Additionally, they struck out a clause which discussed the trilateral agreement” between the UAE, the US, and Israel, the PA representative to the Arab League, Muhannad al-Aklouk, was quoted as having told the Ma’an news agency.


  3. Regarding trolls, you can ban them from emailing you, I think.

    To define that all mail from those accounts goes to spam or is deleted.

    Haven’t done it myself yet, so don’t know exactly.


  4. What Turkey looks like today and looked like in the past:

    // In Turkey, Even Dead Christians Aren’t Safe
    Hatred of non-Muslims is so intense that cemeteries are being attacked—and the government is fanning the flames.

    In February, 20 of the 72 gravestones at the Ortaköy Christian Cemetery in Ankara were destroyed, according to news reports.

    [Many more examples which I won’t quote.]

    Violence and discrimination against non-Muslims did not end with the establishment of modern Turkey in 1923.

    In 1923, non-Muslims were expelled from trading jobs and insurance companies. In 1924, minorities were barred from service jobs, bars, restaurants, coffeehouses, as well as trades such as boat captain, fisherman, and streetcar driver, jobs previously dominated by non-Muslims. In 1934, a law identified further minority-dominated professions to be prohibited to foreigners.

    Also, in 1934, Jews in eastern Thrace were exposed to a pogrom. From 1941 to 1942, Turkey enlisted all Christian and Jewish males in the military, including the elderly and mentally ill. They were forced to work under horrendous conditions in labor battalions. In 1942, a wealth tax was imposed to eliminate Christians and Jews from the economy. In 1955, Greeks, Armenians, and Jews were targeted by a pogrom in Istanbul. And in 1964, the remaining Greeks were forcefully expelled from Turkey. All of the above contributed to the ethnic cleansing of Christians and Jews in Turkey.
