28 October 2014. THIS is the “Weak Russia” that the Anglo Americans and their Uniate “Amen Corner” Rant About… I Think NOT!

00 Park Pobedy. Poklonnaya Gora. Moscow. 28.10.14

______________________________

This is Park Pobedy (Victory Park) on Poklonnaya Gora (Reverence Hill) commemorating the Great Victory over Fascist Germany in the VOV. It sure doesn’t look cheap or second-rate to me! I guess that the Anglo Americans (and their Uniate and lickspittle Russian Orthodox amen corners) aren’t looking at the same country that I am! By the way, they set up the Ramadan Tent at the Park every year… HH and V A Chaplin (amongst a host of others) were honoured guests there of the Russian Muslim people. Our leaders do NOT espouse hate of Islam and Muslims the way the neocons do. NO SIR! We even stand behind the Iranians (Mom! Get the smelling salts… Whiteford and Dreher just fainted).

As you can see from this image, Russia isn’t a minor country. Why would you trust the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Jen Psaki, Bill O’Reilly, and Marie Harf anyway? What DO they know about the Rodina? Less than you do, dear reader! Keep it focused and keep it strong. We spring from a mighty and ancient civilisation… one that had been Christian for 788 years BEFORE the American Declaration of Independence. Fancy that…

America is “a City on a Hill?”. I think NOT…

1 December 2012. Here are Those Muslims That the Rightwingers are so Hot n’ Bothered About… Friday Prayers at the Mosque at the VOV Memorial on Poklonnaya Gora

00 Mosque Poklonnaya Gora Moscow. 01.12.12

______________________________

This is Friday Prayers at the mosque at the VOV Memorial on Poklonnaya Gora. The imam preaching used a loudspeaker system to reach all the congregants. He spoke about the commandments, “If you ask a Christian about the Decalogue, how many will be able to list them, and how one complies with them? It’s important to remember them all the time”. The imam went on to say that God commands us not to murder, rob, or commit adultery. That doesn’t sound very terroristic or subversive to me.

In case you forgot, the Decalogue is:

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee
  6. Thou shalt not murder
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery
  8. Thou shalt not steal
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Islam holds to the Decalogue as much as Christians and Jews do. To judge all Muslims by Islamists is wrong. It’d be like condemning Christianity for the excesses of wackos like Franklin Graham or Sarah Palin… real Christians don’t act like unhinged Evangelical sectarian fruitcakes. In like manner, mainstream Muslims don’t act like fire-breathing Islamist nut jobs. A little bit of good sense, alert observation, and common decency allow one to tell the plug-uglies without a scorecard… I think that most would agree with me on that one.

4 September 2012. VOR Presents… Cossacks on the Way to Paris

On 12 August, in honour of the 200th anniversary of the victory in the First Great Patriotic War of 1812, mounted Cossacks departed Moscow to ride to Paris. Their route shall follow the route of the Russian Army’s march in the years 1812-14 through six countries… Russia, Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, and France. The march is dedicated to the memory of all the Russian soldiers who fell in battle during the Patriotic War.

******

The mounted Cossack march from Moscow to Paris is a cultural/historical re-enactment event, lacking ulterior political or commercial motives, funded by private donations.

******

The group riding to Paris consists of 23 Don Cossacks… descendants of the soldiers who made a similar march some 200 years ago.

******

To complete the whole route from Moscow to Paris, the Cossacks shall ride horses of a special Don variety bred specifically for long journeys.

******

In the cities that are on the route to Paris, the Cossacks will present historical and cultural workshops, do re-enactments, and give concerts. Besides the mounted Cossack group, members of the Russian Army Aleksandrov Song and Dance Ensemble and the trick riding team of the Kremlin riding school are also coming along. Here, the Cossacks are paying their respects at the Poklonnaya Gora 2nd Great Patriotic War memorial before leaving Moscow.

******

The mounted Cossack march shall finish in Fontainebleau, where they’ll hold a special event to mark the 200th year anniversary.

******

A special charity auction will take place after the finish of the mounted march in Fontainebleau, at which the Don horses that passed the entire route from Moscow to Paris will be sold. All funds raised will go for the preservation of this unique Don horse breed.

Patriarch Kirill Urged People Not To Follow Populist Demagogues

_____________________________

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias urged Russians not to believe those who promise to build a new world on the ruins of the old one. After the end of a parade with more than a thousand participants at Poklonnaya Gora after a Liturgy served at St George the all-Victorious Church on the eve of Victory Day and on the feast of St George, he said, “We, Orthodox people, as defenders of the Motherland mustn’t succumb to the temptation of alluring, empty, loud, and useless words, whose only purpose is to divide us, destroy our heritage, and build something new… but what… nobody knows. They tell us that the new world will be beautiful, but why do they seduce our people, encouraging everybody to rip things down to the foundations to build a happy new world? Yet, we know from historical experience that such calls turn into terrible conflicts, attacking the verities of our ancestors, parents, and people”.

Before this speech, His Holiness preached a homily after liturgy in the church, pointing up that feast day of St George, 6 May, was at the end of the Great Patriotic War, emphasising, “The power of the Orthodox Faith has always underpinned the heroism of the Russian people. When a terrible enemy attacked our motherland, there wasn’t any talk of compromise. It would seem that our country’s position was irrational in terms of objective reality… the enemy was at the gates of the capital, the foe exceeded the capabilities of our army and the entire country by a wide margin; they were better armed, the military leaders who led their terrible hordes had much experience of modern warfare, and they had iron discipline. However, nothing could stop the people, who didn’t compromise with evil, even at the most terrible times. Doubtlessly, God’s dispensation aided the heroism of our people; it was incomparable, for they repulsed the enemy from the gates of Moscow”. In his view, the people “prayed to St George fervently, it was no coincidence”, and it wasn’t chance that the Soviet Army Guards ribbons had the ribbon of the Order of St George the all-Victorious, because people understood that “St George was the foremost victor over evil in human history”.
