Islamic militant “jihadists are looking for fertile soil in Europe…” “Is there enough hope for them given by the West?”
Alexander Blok, The Scythians
I’m bringing to your attention the most famous poem of A. Block not just because akin to the ancient Scythes I like to occasionally ride on horseback across flowering meadows, but because Blok’s poetry is considered in Russia to be prophetic. Although no single translation is good enough to reflect this cataclysmic text, you can compare several to get a clue. [Source] [Source]
Geopolitically interesting is the end of this poem that says if you reject us, the old Europe, we will not mourn. We will simply refuse to shield you from barbaric forces. We will step aside and watch passionless how the barbaric hordes burn your pretty towns. There are some other gory details of the European future in this poem you can check yourself.
Since 1918, everybody knew that if you ask Blok a question and open randomly a book of his poems, the answer shall be found right there. So, it has been a question of mine since middle school regarding Blok writing this retrospective and not another prophetic poem.
The Scythians failed to deliver, it seems. Where, in the 21st century, would “barbaric hordes” appear from to invade Europe? So Russia, pissed off for being snubbed by Europeans, could stand aside and let them to destroy and desolate Europe?

Islamic militant “jihadists are looking for fertile soil in Europe,” Kodheli said, recruiting fighters among the Muslim communities prominent in Bosnia, Albania, and Kosovo. “The number of people participating from [the] western Balkans is increasingly worrying. They have families, friends and neighbors left behind. Is there enough hope for them given by the West?”
For Europe’s security, “the weakest point is right in our [Albania’s] back yard,” amid five non-NATO and non-EU states—Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Defense Minister Mimi Kodheli said. Those countries contain a knot of historic conflicts in the middle of a NATO-ordered Europe…”
A gleaming “NATO-ordered Europe” is spared of any knots, obviously.
It started to look like and ISIS conquered Balkans region is becoming a reality.
Once, a talented mathematician solved something related to the problem of knots. When his friends came to congratulate, his mother-in-law took an offence to this. “Knots, she exclaimed. We don’t have any problems with knots. We don’t even have knots. We use suitcases!” In Russian, the word ‘knot’ has double meaning, one of them “a beggar’s knot.” An old, easily frightened woman thought that her son-in-law’s colleagues sought to belittle her in some way.
This old lady’s anxiety reminds me of the fragile minds of the European politicians. “More dynamic and aggressive powers—Russia, Iran and China—are unlikely to leave a weak and divided Europe alone. . . .” Johns Hopkins University’s spawn reads NATO’s fairy tales to frightened Europeans. [Source]
The scariest thing for Europeans is that Russia and China are not just likely to leave Europe alone to solve its own problems, but that they definitely will.
The reality is that destroying Europe is the next best thing for the US to keep its stock market at a record high and stay on top a bit longer. The US prospered enormously from the both wars in Europe last century. Since the US failed so far to coerce Russia into the hot war with NATO in Europe, the US is funneling military hardware and personnel to the Balkans from the Middle East via Ukraine. They’re going there not just for delicious Balkan cuisine. [Source]
Of course, if Greece leaves the EU and/or NATO, it will also become a playground for the new European Caliphate. Fortunately, all the authentic ancient Greece’s artifacts are long stolen by the Brits and safely tucked away at their summer residences in some -shire.
NATO is not going to protect Europe since ISIS is a backdoor operation for NATO and the Saudis. Neither Russia, no China will interfere to help.

1. Ukraine has officially deviated from its obligations to respect human rights in Donbass [Source]
May 21, 2015: – The Parliament of Ukraine has adopted a Statement in regard to Kiev’s right to derogate from a series of international obligations in the sphere of human rights protections in separate regions of Donbass. The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine will inform the UN General Secretary and the General Secretary of the Council of Europe about the Statement adopted.
249 of Ukrainian MPs voted in favour of this act with the necessary minimum of 226 votes.
As the explanatory note to the document claims, carrying out of military operation in Donbass was accompanied by the adoption of legal acts, which are incompatible with the obligations of Ukraine in accordance with the Human Rights Convention, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and European Social Charter.
“Thus, Ukraine makes use of its right to deviate from its obligations determined by paragraph 3 of article 2, articles 9, 12, 14 and 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and articles 5, 6, 8 and 13 of the Human Rights Convention in separate regions of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine”, — the act says.
2. Ivan Protsenko: Ukrainian authorities and MPs, who voted in favor of that law should be declared a threat to humanity [Source]
May 21, 2015: Ivan Protsenko, one of the leaders of the antifascist movement in Kiev, who had to leave for Russia after the coup d’etat in Ukraine, wrote today on his page in Facebook:
“Today Ukrainian Parliament adopted a law allowing Kiev not to adhere to human rights in the ATO zone. Many people interpret it as the right not to respect some of the freedoms in Donbass. Guys, you are a bit delusional. The area of application of this horrendous anti-human law is much bigger. As far as I remember, the ATO regime had been introduced in the Odessa, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk regions, etc., and not only in Donbass. The mere fact that such laws are being introduced and, moreover, adopted, is not consistent with the humane norms, leave alone the Minsk Agreement.
The current Kiev authorities and MPs, who had voted in favor of this law should be recognized as a threat to humanity for what they have already done in the course of the last year, and they should be tried at the international tribunal, if the population does not tear them apart before they are brought to the Hague. If the UN and the OSCE turn a blind eye to such outright crimes, they become the facilitators of these crimes, as their prerogative is to regulate law systems and norms on the international level. We have to shout about it for the entire world to hear … in order for it to hear … to start shouting at once… we should have started shouting about it yesterday … dead people are not able to fight, they will only be the material evidence of the crimes … You have to choose: either you fight and demand the reaction of the global community, either you try to prevent the catastrophe, or you will prevent the continuation of the catastrophe by having become the evidence of the crimes … the dead evidence of the crimes… make your choice right now …”
3. Pro-Junta Ukrainian fascists VS Anti-Junta Ukrainian nationalists [Source]
20th May 2015, city Lviv, fascist state Ukraine
Your media will never show You: Pro-Junta Ukrainian fascists VS Anti-Junta Ukrainian nationalists. Fascist organization “Right sector” didn’t allow for nationalistic organization “Autonomous resistance” to make social marsh at 1st May.
19 days ago, Lviv branch of created by Jews fascist organization “Right sector” blocked street there were members of “Autonomous resistance”. “Autonomic resistance” announced a Social March at 1st May, leaflets calling for participation were posted in the city Lviv. Few of these leaflets, You will see the first minute of the video. But “Autonomic resistance” took part in this fascist coup known as “Euromaidan” and it is nationalistic organization. Both organizations screamed same fascist slogans: “Glory to Ukraine – Glory to Heroes”, “Glory to Nation – Death to enemies”, etc. “Right sector” and “Autonomic resistance” both pretend to be the sole spokesman for the interests of the working class.
Heads of “Right sector” claimed that “Autonomic resistance” couldn’t be spokesman for the interests of the working class, because members of that organization are from another social class.
Heads of “Autonomic resistance” shouted social leftist slogans, like: “Death to fascism, Death to capitalism, but in end of video they added “Death to bolshevism [soviet communism]. They also shouted slogans against rising prices, taxes and tariffs for the poor. “Autonomic resistance” demanded higher wages and pensions, accused the current regime of Poroshenko in criminal acts against Ukraine. “Autonomic resistance” opposed the IMF, they are against the dictatorship of the US and EU in Ukraine. At the same time, they supported the war against the residents of the former East of Ukraine and called Russia an aggressor.
The fascists the “Right sector” blocked the street and police surrounded the members of the “Autonomous resistance” to prevent a collision. So, the members of the “Autonomous resistance” shouted all their ideas and slogans to residents of Lviv who had gathered in the street.
So, Kiev junta fear even former supporters who were trying to oppose and criticize them. Kiev junta send fascist gangs even against radical nationalist organization like “Autonomic resistance” then these organizations going to protest against current anti-social politic of Kiev junta.
Watch video from city Lviv. Video was recorded by resident of city Lviv and supporter of “Autonomic resistance”, due to his words about situation in the city Lviv. Because video was used by few officials channels, You see their logos in this video. By Konstantin

20th of May, 2015. Donetsk People’s Republic, Novorossiya.
Kiev government uses the ceasefire as a cover for their preparations for a summer offensive in Donbass, the DPR Defense Ministry spokesperson Eduard Basurin told a briefing today.
“Poroshenko is trying to save his government, but it’s hardly possible given the complete failure of its social and economic policy. Kiev can only hope for another major inflow of Western cash, to extend its stay in power in the short-term. In the near future, we don’t expect frontal attacks our positions by Ukrainian infantry and armor.
Our intel indicates that the Ukrainian side changed its operational doctrine dramatically due to influence from NATO, especially American, military advisors. The primary focus of the summer campaign will be to degrade our economic potential, to damage our transportation, energy, and social infrastructure through regular shelling from artillery systems of all sorts. Their main goal would be to weaken our forces through diminishing our economic base, and, coincidentally, erode our societal support. We in the DPR stand 100 percent behind the ceasefire, and we’ll definitely fulfill our obligations under it. However, we’d meet any attempt by the Ukrainian side to seize the Donbass through the use of new tactics by its forces, despite the formal stipulation of the Minsk Agreement regarding withdrawal of heavy artillery, with an appropriate response,” – Eduard Basurin said.

May 20, 2015 – The DPR People’s Council’s Committee on Security and Defense has decided to send a letter to the OSCE with a request to explain the principles of work of the OSCE observers, the press service of the DPR Parliament told the Donetsk News Agency today.
“The Ukrainian armed forces continue to fire artillery on Donetsk at nights. Many residents of the districts appeal to the DPR deputies asking to find out why the OSCE representatives don’t react to the ceasefire violations by the Ukrainian army,” – the press service said.
As a shell hit a two-storey residential house on Listoprokatchikov street (Kievsky district of Donetsk), floor and three flats on the second floor were destroyed yesterday. One person was killed. Ukrainian army continued to shell the district last night.
“Residents who keep an appointment with us, and whose houses are attacked on a regular basis, suggest accommodating the OSCE mission in their houses. They believe that it would be better for the OSCE to see the conditions the Donbass residents are in now,” – the press service added.
The Committee on Security and Defense added that they share citizens’ opinion, as many deputies fight in the DPR militia and are well aware of the situation along the demarcation line.

Vanya received a remote-controlled helicopter, which Vanya absolutely loved. He was immensely pleased! Graham also handed in the money collected for Vanya. On the occasion of meeting with such a wonderful guest, a tea party with cake was whipped up on the spot. Vanya and Graham became friends and talked like old buddies. Our hero was invited to visit London! This is simply great: London, Big Ben, it’s a dream! While Graham was here, all were having fun and laughing, he exudes such a positive energy and feelings – beyond words, and all that is because our guest is a person with a real big heart and a broad mind. Many thanks to Graham, for all that you do for the residents of Donbass! For taking the time to come and visit our Vanya and other children affected by this terrible war!

May 17, 2015 – A report from the Washington Post offers an in-depth look into a shadowy relationship between the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) and powerful members of the United States government.
Secret cables from American diplomats based in Baku, which were published in 2010, reveal an economy “similar to the feudalism found in Europe during the Middle Ages: a handful of well-connected families control certain geographic areas, as well as certain sectors of the economy.”
The Obama administration sent special State Department envoy Amos Hochstein to Greece in early May to convince the Greek government to back a proposed pipeline to connect Azerbaijani natural gas to Western Europe. The American supported pipeline is in a race against Russia’s Turkish Stream pipeline, which would connect Russian gas to Western Europe by running beneath the Black Sea and through Turkey and Greece.

“Why have so many Russian citizens seemingly been so cavalier about the dismemberment of Ukraine, a sovereign state that majorities of Russia’s population had long viewed quite favorably?
New survey evidence indicates that this is not so much a product of a surge in Russian nationalism, which has actually remained rather stable since the pre-crisis period. Instead, it has much more to do with a stunningly widespread Russian view that Ukraine as it has existed since 1991 is simply not legitimate as a state within its present borders and with its present government.”

Scott: The UN sees its main “sustained development goals,” no matter how deeply obscured, in reduction the population.
However, Since the 18th century, the world population has seen a rapid increase; between 1900 and 2000 the increase in world population was three times as great as the increase during the entire previous history of humankind – in just 100 years the world population increased from 1.5 to 6.1 billion. But, this development is now coming to an end, and we will not experience a similarly rapid increase in population growth over the course of this century… [Source]
The UN forecast misrepresents underlying demographic dynamics. The future we face is not one of too much population growth, but too little.
