A people that miraculously survived in the mountains after the Tatar-Mongolian invasions of the Middle Ages, today the Ossetians are renowned for being the creative intelligentsia of the Caucasus and the custodians of an unusual form of Christianity.

For Alik Pagayev, an Ossetian who manages a troupe at the Narty Theater in Vladikavkaz, creativity is in the blood of his people.
”I was born in a mountain village and we had this joke: 'Throw a balalaika out of your window, anyone who catches it can play it,” he says.
Vladikavkaz, the capital of North Ossetia, a small republic on Russia’s southern edge bordering Georgia, is called the “Caucasian St. Petersburg.” No other city in the North Caucasus has so many creative people: artists, photographers, designers and performers.
Creative abilities, however, are not the only national trait of the Ossetians. Pagayev says that every Ossetian has military skills and talents for working with horses in their blood.

Open-mindedness to new cultures

The Ossetians are descended from Iranian-speaking nomads – the Scythians and the Sarmatians. In historical writings from the 2nd century A.D. these tribes were known for their serious military and political might.
By the 11th century A.D. the medieval kingdom of Alania had been established in the region. Its inhabitants were famous for their military skills: The main army consisted of the cavalry. Despite their glorious reputation, the Alans could not fight off the Tatar-Mongolian invasion and in the 14th century they were practically destroyed as a people. Only few hundred Alans remained in the mountains. However, the nation managed to survive and later it successfully assimilated in Russia.

According to a 2010 census, today there are almost 700,000 Ossetians in the world, most of whom live in Russia. Most Ossetians live in North Ossetia (459,600 people), while in Moscow there are 7,900 Ossetians and in St. Petersburg slightly over 3,000.While 45,900 Ossetians live in the disputed territory of South Ossetia (recognized by just three nations, with the rest of the world continuing to see it as part of Georgia), they also live in Russia’s other Caucasian republics. In Kabardino-Balkaria there are more than 9,000 Ossetians, in the Stavropol Territory there are almost 8,000 and there is even a separate Ossetian village in Karachay-Cherkessia with 3,100 inhabitants. There are also Ossetian diasporas in other countries. In Turkey the fraternity counts 37,000 members and in Georgia – 14,300 outside South Ossetia.

”The Caucasus started to become a part of Russia in the 18th century. Our republic was one of the first,” explains Anna Kabisova, a photographer and photojournalist.

”The Ossetians perceived these changes as a salvation since it is difficult to survive in the mountains and the intelligentsia understood that it was important to develop. A step towards Russia implied opportunity. Back then many Ossetians went to study in St. Petersburg. That is how this place acquired many artists, sculptors and then its own influential art school, its own distinguishing style,” she said.
In her view, such open-mindedness to new cultures is also a national trait. ”The reason lies in religion. The Ossetians are Christians. So it is easier for them, in comparison to the Muslim republics, to find common ground with the Russian population.”

Pies, beer and offerings to the gods

Actually, the Christianity found in the republic is not entirely traditional. Pagan beliefs are also strong here. The Ossetians have dozens of popular religious celebrations with various rituals. There are symbolic peace sacrifices, for example, slaughtering a chicken or a sheep for guests at a feast.
The famous Ossetian national pies are sacred food. These round, thin pies with meat, cheese and potatoes in the Ossetian worldview represent the sun. During a holiday each family places three pies on the table. They also have local breweries.
”The Caucasus started to become a part of Russia in the 18th century. Our republic was one of the first,” explains Anna Kabisova, a photographer and photojournalist. Anna Kabisova

For many occasions women brew beer according to the national recipe. The Ossetians have their own Oktoberfest. Each October Vladikavkaz holds an Ossetian beer festival/competition, to which Ossetians come from Russia and other countries. The drink, in its aspect and taste, is similar to kvas, the Russian malt drink, and is around 1.5-2 percent alcohol.
The beer is brewed in a large cauldron over a fire. Its main ingredients are the typical ones: hops, malt. But there are also special ones such as lamb ribs and sugar – there are many different recipes.

Not merchants

”Ask me what I hate doing most and I'll respond: trading,” says Alik Pagayev, describing the national character. "The Ossetians don't have an entrepreneurial spirit. We have many talented artists, good athletes, especially in freestyle wrestling, horse breeders, but commerce is really not our thing.”
”Ask me what I hate doing most and I'll respond: trading,” says Alik Pagayev, describing the national character. Source: Archive photo, 19th century

Pagayev also says that tolerance and tact are two other national traits.
”I worked in [the neighboring republic of] Kabardino-Balkaria for three years and could not get used to the fact that they speak their national language. I would go to someone's house and they would speak their own language. I wouldn't understand anything and someone would have to translate the general meaning of the conversation.
”In Ossetia it's not like that. If there’s even one guest among us, we speak Russian. A friend of mine from Chechnya would often visit us and once he heard people speaking Ossetian on a street in Vladikavkaz. He was surprised because he had thought that we always speak Russian.”

In fact, Pagayev explains, there are some young people who do not even know their national language, which he says is sad.
”Our language must be preserved. At home my children speak only Ossetian. If I hear them speak Russian, I tell them, 'You'll speak Russian where you have to, but at home speak your native language,'” he says.
Another important national trait is learning, he explains: ”People always wonder: A young guy from a remote mountain village goes to study in St. Petersburg or Moscow and in two years he fully integrates, speaks Russian without an accent and produces good results in his studies. This is an important trait. I think this is what helped our people survive the difficult times.”

Jordan Peterson: The Key to Life That Orthodox Christians Salvaged, Western Christians Lost

Jordan Peterson: The Key to Life That Orthodox Christians Salvaged, Western Christians Lost

"the West has viewed Christianity more as a set of beliefs that are analogous in some sense to a cognitive theory of the world. So you have to state that you believe a set of propositions about Christ...
The Orthodox would say, as near as I can tell, that you should pick up your damn cross and stumble up the hill—that’s your job"

Jordan Peterson, a psychologist, professor, author, and guru, is adored by conservatives for how unapologetically and intelligently he exposes the demagoguery of social liberalism and prevailing Western 'values.'
His ability to look into the core of things and identify the fallacies that orient modern Western society towards degradation is always shocking, witty, and refreshing. Here, Mr. Peterson, who freely speaks about the importance of spirituality for the human being, regularly cites Biblical narratives and interviews Christians, suggests that Western Christians have lost sight of a crucial angle of their faith--one that Orthodox Christianity posits as central (transcript provided below).

Transcript:
The Orthodox look at Christianity from a slightly different angle than the Protestants and Catholics. And I’m not putting down the Protestants and Catholics, they have a perspective, a reason for their viewpoint.
But what’s happened in the West, I think, (and this is a dreadful over-simplification, so please forgive me) is that the West has viewed Christianity more as a set of beliefs that are analogous in some sense to a cognitive theory of the world.
So to be a Christian in the West, you have to accept that Christ died for your sins and that you’re redeemed. So you have to accept Christ as your Redeemer, and that really means to state that you believe a set of propositions about Christ. That He was the Son of God, that His death and resurrection, His Sacrifice, redeemed mankind and then you partake in that redemption by laying out that accordance with a set of facts, let’s say.
I understand why that’s how its worked out but I think there's a big risk in that and I don’t think the Orthodox fell into that to the same degree.
Their idea—and this is there in Protestantism and Catholicism too, it’s there, but its more secondary, more implicit emphasis and I think that’s a problem, especially in the modern world—the Orthodox would say, as near as I can tell, that you should pick up your damn cross and stumble up the hill—that’s your job.  
And the Cross is the x, where everyone is located. You’re right at the center of reality; you’re suffering and dying and being reborn all the time at the center of reality as  you transform. And you have to accept that and embrace it.
And that’s a very very hard thing to do because it means to embrace all your flaws and the flaws of reality and the tragedy of existence and your death and the sum total of human evil; all of that.Unbelievably demanding requirement, but you do what you can to do that.
And not only do you pick up your cross, so to speak, but you stumble uphill towards the city of God, you stumble up towards what’s good. And that’s your destiny, and that’s where meaning is to be had.
And the Orthodox lay that out quite well: that’s your goal, is the imitation of Christ and Christ is the Logos is the Christian story. Christ is the Logos that God uses at the beginning of time to transform pre-cosmogonic chaos into habitable order. Truthful speech.
So that’s the thing: that fact that you are capable of uttering truthful speech is an indication that you’ve shouldered your cross and are stumbling uphill.
A very coherent theory and the Orthodox, I think, have done a very good job of keeping that idea at the forefront of their belief. And so that’s what I think about Orthodox Christianity.

Florida governor suspends terror-tied Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for disastrous lack of response in Parkland shooting

MIRROR:

Florida governor suspends terror-tied Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for disastrous lack of response in Parkland shooting

By Pamela Geller - on January 8, 2019

CAIR: TERROR IN THE USA 2018

Terror-tied CAIR Sheriff Scott Israel, whose deputies did nothing during the Parkland school shootout, yet he provided weapons training to a notorious radical mosque, has finally been suspended.

The Blue Pill is Doomed! Forget About Ed, Do This Instead!

…several deputies stayed outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., during the response to the mass shooting instead of immediately going inside. Already, Sheriff Scott Israel has said the first deputy there, the school’s resource officer, did not go inside even though the gunman was actively shooting.
The investigation became public after several media reports, citing unnamed officials in the nearby Coral Springs Police Department, said officers who responded to the Feb. 14 shooting were concerned because Broward deputies did not immediately enter the building to help those who had been injured inside.


Longtime Geller Report readers were warned about Sheriff Israel and his terror-tied department for years.
Back in 2015, I reported on the terror-tied CAIR Leader Nezar Hamze being appointed deputy sheriff by Sheriff Scott Israel. The same Sheriff Israel whose department stood down and hid while children were being shot up in school by a psychopath. Instead, Israel sanctioned CAIR sheriff Hamze teaching a radical mosque how to use guns.

FLORIDA GOVERNOR SUSPENDS BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF SCOTT ISRAEL, SOURCES SAY

By Elizabeth Zwirz, Matt Finn | Fox News
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who faced criticism over his department’s response to the deadly Parkland, Florida school shooting last year, was officially suspended by newly sworn-in Gov. Ron DeSantis, multiple sources told Fox News on Tuesday.
The news followed an earlier report from the Miami Herald that the official had informed his top commanders that he’d be removed from the post as a result of his response.
17 people were killed during the February 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The suspect was identified as Nikolas Cruz.
Calls for Israel to resign came shortly after the fatal incident occurred and in April, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association voted “no confidence” in him. The association cited the national criticism surrounding Israel and his office following the shooting.
Anthony Borges, a student who was shot five times while shielding classmates during the massacre but survived, criticized Israel, along with Superintendent Robert Runcie, in April for the attack, saying they “failed us students, teachers and parents alike on so many levels.”
A police report from the Coral Springs Police Department alleged that one Broward County deputy was “taking cover behind a tree” during the shooting, while others took up “exterior positions behind their vehicles” parked outside the school.
Surveillence footage taken at Stoneman Douglas the day of the incident shows Deputy Scot Peterson, the school’s resource officer, never going into the building during the shooting and was heard on radio telling other officers to “stay at least 500 feet away” from the building.
Israel condemned Peterson’s actions and requested an internal affairs investigation.

Facebook and Twitter consult with Hamas-linked CAIR over who gets banned from their platforms

Facebook and Twitter consult with Hamas-linked CAIR over who gets banned from their platforms

JAN 8, 2019 4:19 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER19 COMMENTS

This doesn’t come as any surprise given the eagerness of both Facebook and Twitter to be Sharia-compliant. Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan in July 2017 to assure the Pakistani government that it would remove “anti-Islam” material. And Facebook has done so assiduously, banning numerous foes of jihad terror and twice now blocking the Jihad Watch Facebook page on spurious technical grounds. And Twitter has recently been notifying people that they’re in violation of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, which violation carries a death sentence.
But this shows how sick and degenerate the social media giants really are. CAIR has ties to Hamas, and “Billoo has expressed her support for an Islamic caliphate and Sharia law. She also claims, in multiple tweets, that ISIS is on the same moral plane as American and Israeli soldiers, addingthat ‘our troops are engaged in terrorism.'” This pro-Sharia Islamic supremacist is deciding what is acceptable discourse and what isn’t. It’s no wonder that the result would be platforms that are increasingly hostile to foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others.

“Report: Facebook and Twitter consult with terror-tied CAIR over who gets banned from platforms,” by Jordan Schachtel, Conservative Review, January 8, 2019:

The Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is best known as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history, appears to have access to high-ranking Facebook and Twitter executives and has communicated with these individuals about who should be allowed to stay on their platforms, according to a Wall Street Journal report published Tuesday.
The Wall Street Journal reports that CAIR officials “complained to Twitter” about activist Laura Loomer, citing a tweet in which she called the anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., an anti-Semite and an apologist for Sharia law. Loomer was later permanently banned from Twitter.
Zahra Billoo, the executive director of CAIR’s San Francisco chapter, was quoted in the Journal piece as an individual who appears to have special access to both Twitter and Facebook.
“The council doesn’t often step in to advocate against other users, says Executive Director Zahra Billoo, but did so in the case of Ms. Loomer based on her previous comments about Muslims,” the piece explains.
Yet the Wall Street Journal fails to note that Billoo herself is a proven radical extremist. In tweets that remain publicly available, Billoo has expressed her support for an Islamic caliphate and Sharia law. She also claims, in multiple tweets, that ISIS is on the same moral plane as American and Israeli soldiers, adding that “our troops are engaged in terrorism.
Billoo is not an anomaly at CAIR. Her views reflect the mainstream consensus within the organization, which over the years has attempted to transform itself from a clandestine Hamas-funding operation to a mainstream Muslim “civil rights organization.” CAIR directors have cheeredterrorist attacks, publicly declared support for terrorist groups, and engage in regular bigotry against various religions, ethnicities, women, homosexuals, and others….

If these devout Muslims considered themselves to be Americans, there’d be no need for a Council on American-Islamic Relations.
That’s your first clue, Facebook, Twitter, et al…it’s right in the name: CAIR.
American laws protecting freedom vs. Islamic law of theocratic tyranny that will pull a “Charlie Hebdo” if denied.
There can be no “relations” between Islam and true freedom. It’s just a way of keeping the termites working.

CAIR IS a TERRORIST LINKED Organization. Even the Saudi’s acknowledge that..
Dear Zahra Billoo:
It’s always someone else’s fault isn’t it?
So, ISIS and all the rest of the barbaric animals are simply victims of “Zionist” & Christian Plots?
They are all just reacting to the terrible Americans and coalition forces FIGHTING YOUR BROTHER AND SISTER TERRORISTS ALL OVER THE WORLD?
WE are the problem – and all of the bombings, gang rapes, stabbings, arson, vehicle assaults, grooming and rape gangs, theft, rioting, destruction and mayhem, IS OUR DOING, and YOU are the victim here…
What a damned disgrace YOU are..
WE started it? No kidding! You obviously have an IQ problem as well.
1,400 years of Islamic brutal and (ISIS style) barbaric history proves otherwise..
But, your deception goes on.. Taqiyya anyone? …The “Big Con” in perpetual motion..
You are also a not-so-masterful “Grifter”.. I’m not buying any of it..
If you want to find the answer to who, or whom, is responsible for all of this, please go look in the mirror Zahra..
..It’s all about YOU, and, of course, Islam..
If, and until, you publicly renounce sharia, jihad, khilafah, and Islam, it is YOU, and all those just like you, who ARE the problem..

But this is the kind of convergence that I’m saying is happening. Soon it will be Saudi Arabia and facebook… oh wait, that’s already there…. and so on it goes…
On a related note, over on Rather Expose Them he had some posts up about the Southern Baptist Convention’s slide into apostasy, it’s like watching dominoes fall! It was lgbt and islam, both today and yesterday. Holding hands with bedfellows in strange places by Evangelical organizations, etc. (BTW, I don’t agree with everything on every blog I cite obviously, like I disagree with him on the Charismatic thing, but so many are in the dark on that one too so what can one do. I know it’s for today because I’ve got it, but if they don’t it’s like trying to convince a brick wall.) Anyway, this post set is worth a peek.

I don’t book my face and I leave twittering to the birds. These two companies have way too much control over people.
How many other companies are people willing to give so much control over their lives? And in the end, give control to moslim creeps such as the bilhoo one, to decide whether or not one can have an “account.” Whether or not one can make a comment, post a report, post a photo?
All of those accounts make money for these companies, and they allow moslims to dictate just who can say what. Despicable.

Billoo is the same person who used that old poster urging Muslims to slam the door on FBI agents if they come asking for info. When she spoke at UC Irvine during wear a hijab day, I got her to admit that sharia indeed has a death penalty by stoning for adultery. (“For both men and women” she hastened to add.

Like I have posted on here before and as the majority here have said , Facebook (Farcebook) and Twitter (Twitshits) are nothing more than promoters of the leftist commie propaganda agendas platform that is intent is to destroy this country. I dumped them both as not to support their commercial agenda. If speaking the truth is a crime or is so called “Hate Speech” and you are living in this country then I would suggest you leave it. I did take an oath to defend it and the constitution both times I served it and it never expires!
