More Than 100,000 People Signed Online Petition Demanding the Release of Archimandrite Ephrem

THIS is why Abba Ephrem’s in prison… he brought the Belt of the Most Holy Mother of God to Russia, and millions of believers bowed before it, including leaders of the state… and the American special services wanted to punish him for that. You have a choice… you can support the godliness embodied in Holy Rus, or, you can support the demonic Evangelicalism (a religious apologia for the radical rightwing) regnant in the USA, which is Satan’s simulacrum of Christianity. Reflect on this… Paffhausen’s chosen the latter, not the former, course… interesting, no?

According to a website favourable to the release of Igumen Ephrem, the Abbot of Vatopedi Monastery on Mount Athos, more than 100,000 people signed a petition calling for his release from custody in a Greek prison for dangerous criminals. The website “Free Elder Ephraim” has a petition that you can sign to appeal to the President and Prime Minister of Greece, as well as the Supreme Court (Areopagus) for the release of Igumen Ephrem. A portion of the protest posted on the site reads, “We’re convinced that the decision to remand a respected spiritual elder to preliminary custody is a political provocation, with the aim of undermining the authority of Holy Mount Athos and the Church in general”. A counter of signatures on the site shows that the number overtopped 100,000 on Thursday, reaching 103,155 on Thursday evening. This document is available in Russian, Greek, Serbian, Georgian, Bulgarian, English, Romanian, French, and German.

Britain Admits It Used “Spy Rocks” in Moscow

______________________________

For the first time, Britain admitted it was spying when the FSB, the Russian state security service, accused British diplomats of using a transceiver hidden inside a rock on a Moscow street. Footage showing the alleged spies using the device aired on Russian TV in January 2006. The FSB described it as “absolutely new spy technology”. Then, the UK Foreign Office denied the claims. However, in a BBC documentary due to be broadcast later today, Jonathan Powell, then-Prime Minister Tony Blair’s chief of staff, admitted that the footage was genuine, saying, “The spy rock was embarrassing, they had us bang to rights. Clearly, they’d known about it for some time and they’d been saving it up for a political purpose”. The documentary alleges that the purpose of the film was to justify the adoption of a controversial new law giving the authorities increased powers to monitor the activities and finances of non-governmental organisations. At that time, then-President Vladimir Putin said that foreign spies used NGOs as a cover and argued that the measure was necessary for state security, but critics said it cracked down on human rights and democracy.

The first rumours that Greece may leave the Euro zone arose in 2010, when the country asked the EU and IMF for a bailout in a bid to avoid default. Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos on Monday said abandoning the Euro and returning to the Drachma was “really not an option” for the country. In an interview with CNBC, Papademos also said he was confident the country would avoid a default in March.
