The Egyptian minister of antiquities announces that a team of German archaeologists has discovered missing pieces belonging to the famed Colossi of Memnon. The statues, dating to roughly 1350 BC, were damaged in an earthquake during the Roman era.

The colossi are some of Egypt's oldest touristic attractions, drawing tourists since ancient times. The twin statues, over 18 meters (60 feet) tall each, are of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who was worshipped as a deity. The statues are the only remains of a large temple that was built in memorial of the pharaoh.

Minister of Antiquities Mohammed Ibrahim says Sunday the team made the discovery in cooperation with archaeologists from Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities. He said the pieces belong to the belt of one statue, and the base of the other.

After droughts and flood, project aims to preserve Sinai mountain gardens

After droughts and flood, project aims to preserve Sinai mountain gardens | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

By Louise Sarant (Egypt independent) 

Around St. Catherine’s Monastery, encircled by the high South Sinai mountains, lie hundreds of Bedouin gardens nested in the nearby wadis, or valleys. These gardens, which were initially built during the Byzantine period by monks, hermits and settlers from around the Mediterranean, have been the responsibility of the Jabaleya Bedouins for more than a century.

A severe drought that lasted for years in the peninsula, coupled with an unprecedented amount of precipitation and snow that fell over the mountains early this year, has badly damaged some of these precious shrines to biodiversity.

Because the houses are built of stone and rooftops from a mix of rocks and sand, the continuous rainfall pushed against the roofs, which finally collapsed under the strain.

With many Bedouin families relying on these mountain orchards for their livelihood, the collapse of the buildings and fences, and the destruction of the trees was a disaster. To finance the rebuilding of these enclaves, members of the Jabaleya tribe have now launched an alternative tourism project inviting volunteers to participate in restoration efforts.

Entitled “Help Rebuild the Bedouin Gardens and Discover the Sinai High Mountains,” the project is still in its early stages but tribe members plan to bring visitors to the gardens to stay with local families and help with reconstruction work. They will also be asked to provide a donation directly to gardeners to hire workers, buy building materials and cover transportation costs.

“These gardens provide livelihoods for us, as there are no job opportunities in the city,” says Sayed Musa, the Bedouin man from the area in charge of the project, who has 10 years experience as a safari and trekking guide. “The situation for many families is now extremely tense. They have lost all their income and are no longer self-sufficient for food.”

Besprechung zu - Olaf Sundermeyer: Rechter Terror in Deutschland. Täter, Opfer und der hilflose Staat. Verlag C. H. Beck, München, 2012.

Rezension von H.-Georg Lützenkirchen (28.02.2013)

(unter: http://www.literaturkritik.de/public/rezension.php?rez_id=17614 )

 

 

 

 

Der Skandal des Umgangs mit rechter Gewalt in Deutschland liegt darin, dass diese Gewalt lange Zeit überhaupt nicht angemessen wahrgenommen wurde. Gerne wurde sie kleingeredet, es war dann von wahlweise bedauernswerten oder erschreckenden Einzelfällen die Rede, oft wurde ein rechtsextremer Hintergrund nicht wahrgenommen und die Tat ging als ‚normale‘ Gewalttat in die Statistik ein. Eine verfehlte Extremismustheorie, die rechte und linke Gewalt gerne gleichsetzte, verhinderte zudem den Blick auf die spezifischen Bedingungen rechter Gewalt in Deutschland. Nicht auf dem rechten Auge blind war der Staat, er war schlicht nicht informiert.

 

Entsprechend groß war der Schock, als 2011 die rechte Terrorgruppe „Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund“ (NSU) eher zufällig aufgedeckt wurde. 

 

[...]

 

Rechtsextremisten fühlen sich in einer „permanenten Notwehrsituation“. In ihrer Logik sind ‚Ausländer‘ Beweis für eine bedrohende Überfremdung; Linke und andere „Gutmenschen“ leisten dieser Überfremdung Vorschub und bedrohen damit zudem die „weiße Rasse“. Überall Bedrohung, gegen die man sich mit Taten statt Worten wehren muss. „Und Taten“, so schreibt Sundermeyer, „sind Gewalttaten“. Sie gehören zum Rechtsextremismus – den Sundermeyer als eine Ideologie beschreibt, „die von der Ungleichwertigkeit der Menschen ausgeht und Gewalt als Mittel der Politik sieht“.

 

[...]

 

Sundermeyers „Geschichte der Gewalt“ beginnt in den 1980er-Jahren. Als markantes Datum steht das „Oktoberfestattentat“ in München, bei dem am 26.September 1980 13 Menschen ums Leben kamen – unter ihnen auch der mutmaßliche Attentäter. Bis heute ist der Hintergrund dieses Anschlages nicht vollständig aufgeklärt. Spuren führen aber zur „Wehrsportgruppe Hoffmann“. Deren ehemaliger „Chef“ Karl Heinz Hoffmann ist nach wie vor in der rechten Szene aktiv. Sundermeyer berichtet von einem bizarren Besuch bei Hoffmann, der ihm die „wahren Hintergründe“ des Attentats in München zu erläutern versucht. In Hoffmanns Wehrsportgruppe waren jedenfalls viele, die mit Gewalttaten auffielen. Der Autor nennt sie alle.

Egypt’s Mubarak feared Iran’s regional ambitions: former official

Egypt’s Mubarak feared Iran’s regional ambitions: former official | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Egypt’s former President, Hosni Mubarak, feared the spread of Shiite influence in his country and the region even though he did want strong ties with Iran, according to the former Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Aboul-Gheit.

Aboul-Gheit told Al Arabiya that Egypt was watching Iran’s influence in the country closely along with Shiite Islamic institutions being founded in African countries bordering Egypt such as Chad and Sudan.

“We are watching, through our embassies in African countries, how Iran keeps expanding and branching out through their Shiite institutions as well as supporting them with a lot of money,” the former foreign minister said. In his interview, Aboul-Gheit says that such institutions and financial support is dangerous to the security of the region due to possible demonstrations and protests that Iran could instigate.

During the Islamic summit in Jeddah in 2005, "Mubarak didn't like confrontations, when I told him that Ahmadinejad wanted to meet him, he didn't welcome the idea," the former minister said.

"Mubarak came in the middle of the summit session and left immediately just to avoid any meeting with the Iranian president," he added.

Biancamaria Fontana, Montaigne en politique Traduit de l’anglais par Françoise Stonborough Marseille: Agone 2013, 352 pages ISBN: 978-2-7489-0174-0 ()

 

Présentation de l'éditeur

 

On sait généralement que Montaigne a été maire de Bordeaux pendant 4 ans et que, à la fois proche du futur HenriIV et bien introduit à la cour à Paris, il a joué entre eux à diverses reprises un rôle de négociateur. Cependant, on continue de voir en lui avant tout un moraliste et un explorateur du moi, réfugié dans sa «librairie» à distance de la politique, quand on ne fait pas de lui un sceptique conservateur, défenseur de la monarchie absolue. Montaigne en politique brise cette image. Dans cette synthèse, l’auteur montre à quel point les Essais tout entier sont habités par le souci politique de leur auteur: par son expérience personnelle très riche dans ce domaine, par les inquiétudes permanentes que suscitent chez lui les événements de son temps (les guerres de religion), par ses lectures des auteurs politiques de l’Antiquité ou contemporains, etc. Les activités et les idées politiques n’ont pas été secondaires ou momentanées dans la réflexion de Montaigne: elles sont au cœur de sa pensée, au même titre que les réflexions morales, auxquelles elles sont d’ailleurs étroitement liées. Montaigne est bel et bien un penseur politique. Pas au sens où il aurait développé une théorie ou une doctrine ou une philosophie politique, mais au sens où la réflexion sur les événements, les actions, les passions ou les vertus politiques est omniprésente dans les Essais . Enseignante et chercheur en histoire des idées politiques à Cambridge (1978–1991), Biancamaria Fontana est actuellement professeur à l’université de Lausanne. Membre du King’s College (Cambridge, UK), elle est spécialiste de la période post-révolutionnaire et des penseurs politiques libéraux (Benjamin Constant et Mme de Staël). Auteure notamment de The Invention of the Modern Republic (Cambridge UP, 1994), elle a codirigé récemment Les Usages de la séparation des pouvoirs (2008), et écrit régulièrement pour le Times Litterary Supplement . Du même auteur: Du boudoir à la Révolution. Laclos et Les Liaisons dangereuses dans leur siècle , rééd. Agone, 2013

Collection of Graeco-Roman tombs uncovered in Alexandria

Collection of Graeco-Roman tombs uncovered in Alexandria | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

During routine archaeological survey at an area known as the "27 Bridge" in Al-Qabari district, one of Alexandria’s most densely populated slum areas, archaeologists stumbled upon a collection of Graeco-Roman tombs.

 

Each tomb is a two-storey building with a burial chamber on its first floor. The tombs are semi-immersed in subterranean water but are well preserved and still bear engravings.

Mohamed Abdel Meguid, head of Alexandria's Antiquities Department, explained that the tombs are part of a larger cemetery known as the “Necropolis” (or City of the Dead) as described by Greek historian Strabo when he visited Egypt in 30BC. According to Strabo, the cemetery included a network of tombs containing more than 80 inscriptions, while each tomb yielded information about burial rituals of the Hellenic period.

The newly discovered collection of tombs, Abdel Meguid pointed out, is a part of the western side of the cemetery that was dedicated to the public and not to royals or nobles. The tombs are empty of funerary collections or mummies, corpses, skeletons or even pottery.

“This is a very important discovery that adds more to the archaeological map of Alexandria,” Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said, adding that the discovery would allow scientists to decipher more about the history of ancient Alexandria and would also add another tourist destination to the city. (Nevine El-Aref/Aheam Online)

Die „Banalität des Bösen“ - Margarethe von Trottas Film über Hannah Arendt - 2013-02-13 | offene Ablage: nothing to hide

 

Quell-URL.: http://www.literaturkritik.de/public/rezension.php?rez_id=17503     

 

Von Alexandra Pontzen (13.02.2013).

Margarethe von Trotta hat ihrer filmbiografischen Galerie von ‚starken Frauen‘, nach Gudrun Ensslin, Rosa Luxemburg und Hildegard von Bingen, ein weiteres Porträt hinzugefügt, das der vor den Nazis 1941 nach New York geflohenen  und ebendort 1975 verstorbenen deutsch-jüdischen Philosophin Hannah Arendt.

Unter dem verkürzten Titel „Hannah Arendt“ – auf den Zusatz des Originaltitels „Ihr Denken veränderte die Welt“ wurde in der deutschen Präsentation eher verzichtet (er hätte auch zu sehr an den in der DDR gängigen, auf Lenin gemünzten Spruch „Er rührte an den Schlaf der Welt“ erinnert) – erlebte der Film im Beisein der nordrhein-westfälischen Ministerpräsidentin und dreier ihrer Ministerinnen am 8. Januar in Essen seine deutsche Erstaufführung und gelangte ab dem übernächsten Tag in die deutschen Kinos. Kaum ein deutsches Feuilleton lässt sich finden, das dem Werk nicht seine Aufmerksamkeit und Reverenz erwiesen hätte – und beides, soviel vorweg, dürfte sich mindestens ebenso doppelter politischer Korrektheit, feministisch wie historisch grundierter, wie seinem filmkünstlerischen Rang verdanken.

Le 22 février 1943, trois étudiants allemands d'une vingtaine d'années sont guillotinés dans la prison de Stadelheim, près de Munich. Leur crime est d'avoir dénoncé le nazisme dans le cadre d'un mouvement clandestin, «La Rose blanche» (Die Weiße Rose en allemand). Comment, de juin 1942 à février 1943 une poignée de jeunes étudiants chrétiens ont-ils pu défendre les valeurs démocratiques au prix de leur vie ? Comment ont-ils pu diffuser six tracts incendiaires tout en écrivant le soir des slogans pacifistes et antinazis sur les murs de Munich ?

Voici 60 ans, en février 1953, à Londres était signé un accord historique sur la dette allemande. Les termes de l’accord signé tranchent radicalement avec la manière dont est aujourd’hui traitée la Grèce. Après la seconde guerre mondiale, de multiples conditions ont été réunies pour permettre à l’Allemagne de l’Ouest de se développer rapidement en permettant la reconstruction de son appareil industriel. Non seulement la dette contractée par l’Allemagne en-dehors des deux guerres mondiales a été réduite de plus de 60%, mais le règlement des dettes de guerre et le paiement des réparations aux victimes civiles et aux Etats ont été reportés à une date indéterminée : de fait, à la réunification allemande qui est intervenue en 1990 et au traité de paix qui a été signé à Moscou la même année entre les autorités des deux Allemagnes en cours d’unification, les Etats-Unis, l’URSS, le Royaume-Uni et la France. Le poids des réparations sur l’économie allemande a donc été longtemps différé. Et dans le cas des réparations dues à la Grèce, celles-ci n’ont pas représenté le moindre effort de la part de l’Allemagne puisque les autorités allemandes refusent de donner suite aux demandes grecques...

Baden-Baden holds a special place in the long story of Berlioz’s relations with Germany: no other German city was visited by him with such frequency. In the decade from 1853 to 1863 he went to Baden-Baden no less than nine times, returning there every year from 1856 onwards. Yet the start of his association with Baden-Baden also came relatively late in his travels: it was a decade after he had launched the first of a series of major musical trips which took him eventually to many parts of Germany, then to Austria, Hungary, Bohemia, Russia, and England.

"A Crisis Of The State? The End Of The Post-Westphalian Model" by Carlo Bordoni - Social Europe 2013-02-13 | offene Ablage: nothing to hide

[...]

 

Based on the principle of limited sovereignty, the post-Westphalian model recognises in the modern state absolute and indivisible sovereignty over its territory and ownership in international relations, of which it is the sole subject.

If for a long time the state and nation have been able to live together, united on a historical and legal level by the insolubility of the fundamental principles that modernity assured, it was thanks to the agreements made in the Treaties of Westphalia, at the end of the long religious war, that had shattered Europe for thirty years. Since then, modern states, in the form that we have known for centuries, have standardised the so-called “post-Westphalian model”, which sets down the rules of universal stability and recognises the full sovereignty of a state within its own borders.

 

In the third millennium, it is the very post-Westphalian model that enters into crisis, dragging with it the crisis of the modern state, which is determined not only by the opening of borders, but by the inability demonstrated in maintaining its commitments to its citizens. In this phase, it is the “internal” boundaries that create problems.
