The burning of the temple at Jeruasalam 70 A.D.

The Romans Destroy the Temple

 

at Jerusalem, 70 AD

 

In the year 66 AD the Jews of Judea rebelled against their Roman masters. In response, the Emperor Nero dispatched an army under the generalship of Vespasian to restore order. By the year 68, resistance in the northern part of the province had been eradicated and the Romans turned their full attention to the subjugation of Jerusalem. That same year, the Emperor Nero died by his own hand, creating a power vacuum in Rome. In the resultant chaos, Vespasian was declared Emperor and returned to the Imperial City. It fell to his son, Titus, to lead the remaining army in the assault on Jerusalem.

 


Roman Centurian

The Roman legions surrounded the city and began to slowly squeeze the life out of the Jewish stronghold. By the year 70, the attackers had breached Jerusalem’s outer walls and began a systematic ransacking of the city. The assault culminated in the burning and destruction of the Temple that served as the center of Judaism.

In victory, the Romans slaughtered thousands. Of those sparred from death: thousands more were enslaved and sent to toil in the mines of Egypt, others were dispersed to arenas throughout the Empire to be butchered for the amusement of the public. The Temple’s sacred relics were taken to Rome where they were displayed in celebration of the victory.

The rebellion sputtered on for another three years and was finally extinguished in 73 AD with the fall of the various pockets of resistance including the stronghold at Masada.

“…the Jews let out a shout of dismay that matched the tragedy.”

Our only first-hand account of the Roman assault on the Temple comes from the Jewish historian Josephus Flavius. Josephus was a former leader of the Jewish Revolt who had surrendered to the Romans and had won favor from Vespasian. In gratitude, Josephus took on Vespasian’s family name – Flavius – as his own. We join his account as the Romans fight their way into the inner sanctum of the Temple:

“…the rebels shortly after attacked the Romans again, and a clash followed between the guards of the sanctuary and the troops who were putting out the fire inside the inner court; the latter routed the Jews and followed in hot pursuit right up to the Temple itself. Then one of the soldiers, without awaiting any orders and with no dread of so momentous a deed, but urged on by some supernatural force, snatched a blazing piece of wood and, climbing on another soldier’s back, hurled the flaming brand through a low golden window that gave access, on the north side, to the rooms that surrounded the sanctuary. As the flames shot up, the Jews let out a shout of dismay that matched the tragedy; they flocked to the rescue, with no thought of sparing their lives or husbanding their strength; for the sacred structure that they had constantly guarded with such devotion was vanishing before their very eyes.

…No exhortation or threat could now restrain the impetuosity of the legions; for passion was in supreme command. Crowded together around the entrances, many were trampled down by their companions; others, stumbling on the smoldering and smoked-filled ruins of the porticoes, died as miserably as the defeated. As they drew closer to the Temple, they pretended not even to hear Caesar’s orders, but urged the men in front to throw in more firebrands. The rebels were powerless to help; carnage and flight spread throughout.

Most of the slain were peaceful citizens, weak and unarmed, and they were butchered where they were caught. The heap of corpses mounted higher and higher about the altar; a stream of blood flowed down the Temple’s steps, and the bodies of those slain at the top slipped to the bottom.

When Caesar failed to restrain the fury of his frenzied soldiers, and the fire could not be checked, he entered the building with his generals and looked at the holy place of the sanctuary and all its furnishings, which exceeded by far the accounts current in foreign lands and fully justified their splendid repute in our own.

As the flames had not yet penetrated to the inner sanctum, but were consuming the chambers that surrounded the sanctuary, Titus assumed correctly that there was still time to save the structure; he ran out and by personal appeals he endeavored to persuade his men to put out the fire, instructing Liberalius, a centurion of his bodyguard of lancers, to club any of the men who disobeyed his orders. But their respect for Caesar and their fear of the centurion’s staff who was trying to check them were overpowered by their rage, their detestation of the Jews, and an utterly uncontrolled lust for battle.

 


Titus

Most of them were spurred on, moreover, by the expectation of loot, convinced that the interior was full of money and dazzled by observing that everything around them was made of gold. But they were forestalled by one of those who had entered into the building, and who, when Caesar dashed out to restrain the troops, pushed a firebrand, in the darkness, into the hinges of the gate Then, when the flames suddenly shot up from the interior, Caesar and his generals withdrew, and no one was left to prevent those outside from kindling the blaze. Thus, in defiance of Caesar’s wishes, the Temple was set on fire.

While the Temple was ablaze, the attackers plundered it, and countless people who were caught by them were slaughtered. There was no pity for age and no regard was accorded rank; children and old men, laymen and priests, alike were butchered; every class was pursued and crushed in the grip of war, whether they cried out for mercy or offered resistance.

Through the roar of the flames streaming far and wide, the groans of the falling victims were heard; such was the height of the hill and the magnitude of the blazing pile that the entire city seemed to be ablaze; and the noise – nothing more deafening and frightening could be imagined.

There were the war cries of the Roman legions as they swept onwards en masse, the yells of the rebels encircled by fire and sword, the panic of the people who, cut off above, fled into the arms of the enemy, and their shrieks as they met their fate. The cries on the hill blended with those of the multitudes in the city below; and now many people who were exhausted and tongue-tied as a result of hunger, when they beheld the Temple on fire, found strength once more to lament and wail. Peraea and the surrounding hills, added their echoes to the deafening din. But more horrifying than the din were the sufferings.

The Temple Mount, everywhere enveloped in flames, seemed to be boiling over from its base; yet the blood seemed more abundant than the flames and the numbers of the slain greater than those of the slayers. The soldiers climbed over heaps of bodies as they chased the fugitives.”

Window Of Opportunity For Peace In Mali ‘Slowly Narrowing,’ Warns Secretary-General

20 September 2017 – Speaking at a ministerial meeting at United Nations Headquarters, Secretary-General António Guterres today voiced concern over the delayed implementation of the peace agreement in M

“We meet less than a year before the next presidential election,” said Mr. Guterres, stressing that the coming months will be an opportunity for Malians and their institutions to show their dedication to peace and the rule of law.

Noting that municipal elections in November last year were not held in all regions and suffered a low turnout, he encouraged the Malian authorities to ensure the success of the presidential election.

He added that numerous delays and slow implementation of critical provisions of the Agreement on Peace and Reconciliation in Mali are always a cause of concern, including the postponement of the review of the Constitution.

Delays in security sector reform related to the redeployment of the reformed and reconstituted Malian defence and security forces in the centre and north are also to be noted.

Mr. Guterres added that a number of achievements were recorded in recent months encompassing security, development, reductions in community violence, efforts to prevent the recruitment of youth.

“Yet the country’s achievements – that are remarkable – remain fragile, especially in light of the recent confrontations between armed groups and recurring attacks,” he went on. “Trust is being tested but we welcome the signature, earlier today, of a ceasefire agreement between the two signatory movements which also re-emphasizes their commitment to the implementation of the peace agreement.”

New institutions, processes and laws have yet to translate into significant improvements in the daily lives of Malians, the Secretary-General stated, adding that inclusivity, especially of women, youth and other under-represented social groups, remains insufficient, and constraints to humanitarian access persist.

“The window of opportunity for the Government to provide long-awaited peace dividends is slowly narrowing,” said Mr. Guterres.

The UN chief also urged the international community to ensure unity of purpose in financially and logistically supporting regional undertaking, such as the G5 Sahel Joint Force, to combat terrorism and transnational organized crime because, if successful, the Force can not only contribute to an enabling environment for the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali to fully implement its mandate but also advance progress in the Malian peace process.

But the most sustainable solution remains the strengthening of Mali’s own security architecture, Mr. Guterres said, stressing that the absence of a comprehensive strategy for security sector reform needs to be urgently addressed.

Transitional Justice In Tunisia – A Painful but Necessary Step Forward

Published

on

Recent public hearings of  saw a painful period of collective introspection for the country’s people.

Tales of humiliations, torture, and rape committed over a near-60 year period—starting at around the time of Tunisia’s independence from France—were broadcast in eight live public hearing sessions from November 2016 to March 2017.

According to Refic Hodzic of the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), transitional justice processes generally take place in polarized contexts, in which there is resistance to change.

This has proven true in Tunisia, where the TDC and its chair have been the target of attacks by political and media leaders, mainly those linked to the old regime, over their operating costs and financial management.

Some have also criticized the choice of victims in the public hearings, arguing that the majority are Islamist activists, though, given that Islamists were the main oppressed group under the old secular regime, their over-representation here makes sense.

The hearings are the only publicly visible component of the commission, which has received 62,641 cases to date. It was established following the Tunisian revolution, which led to the removal of long-standing president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and initiated the wider Arab Spring.

Tunisia was unique among Arab nations in seeing a peaceful transition to a democratic system.

Six years into this process, Tunisia has successfully written a new constitution, held two rounds of free and fair legislative elections, and democratically elected a president. It is now following the lead of other countries who have gone through major political upheavals.

Based on investigations, testimony-gathering, and archival research, truth commissions were instrumental in the successful transitional periods of countries such as Argentina, Peru, and South Africa.

The TDC will produce a final report covering the period from 1955-2013, during which the successive oppressive administrations of Habib Bourguiba and Zine El Abidine Ben Ali turned Tunisia into a police state under one-party-rule.

The regimes imposed routine restrictions on freedom of speech, the press, and association, and relied heavily on intimidation, arbitrary arrests, beatings, torture, residential restrictions, and travel controls, alongside systemic corruption and economic marginalization.

Among the many women who spoke at the recent hearings was Latifa Matmati. Although her husband Kamal Matmati was killed in 1991, she only learned of his fate in 2011. For 20 years, she brought clothes to the police station where she believed he was held captive; for 20 years, the police did nothing to stop her.

Sami Brahim, meanwhile, told of his experience of abuse and torture while in jail: “All the prisoners were stripped, the young and the elderly. For an entire week, everyone was kept naked.”

He said that he was ready to forgive his torturers, but that forgiveness must be accompanied by an explanation of why he was subjected to these activities.

After giving the floor to the victims, the TDC does indeed plan to have torturers testify, to explain the mechanisms that fueled the repression.

The hearings were an eye-opening experience for many Tunisians who didn’t know such abuses were taking place. Under the old regimes, information was tightly controlled and only those affected or linked to the victims were aware of what was going on.

According to Salwa El Gantri, ICTJ’s Head of Office in Tunisia, it is “difficult to make those who were never victims, who never had any links to victims, understand victims’ suffering and victims’ rights.”

The public hearings’ main purpose is thus to ensure those detached to hear the truth directly from the victims.
Despite millions tuning in via television, radio, and social media, it is still too early to assess the real impact on Tunisian society.

Beyond a widely shared sense of high emotion, the reactions have been diverse. While most Tunisians appreciated learning about the abuses directly from their victims, some have argued that it was the wrong time for the hearings to occur, as Tunisia faces more pressing issues, such as a stagnating economy, high corruption, and continuous terrorist attacks and other security threats.

While no one can deny the urgency of the various challenges Tunisia is facing and will continue to face for the next few years, compromise on the full implementation of the transitional justice is only likely to diminish efforts to prevent human rights abuses from repeating.

Successful democratic transitions require deep change to occur on multiple fronts and concurrently.
As its work continues it will be of paramount importance for the TDC to assess the effectiveness of its operations and make any necessary improvements.

It should also keep up and even increase its communication efforts. This will help restore and maintain its credibility and relevance among the public, and challenge negative perceptions on the transitional justice process, as well as reform and democratization more broadly.

The successful creation of the pillars of the democratic transition was a remarkable achievement in a region crippled by an acute lack of individual freedoms, unemployment, corruption, war, and terrorism. To stay on track, ambitious reforms will be necessary.

Continued progress on transitional justice can help in this process, by improving the institutions that were once complicit in the abuses, primarily the police and judiciary.

If nothing else, the public hearings have successfully initiated a constructive national debate on these issues. They have also made some degree of contribution to repairing the population’s trust in justice and the ongoing transition.

Following his public testimony, Sami Brahim reported receiving thousands of letters and messages of support, while one of the TDC commissioners, Ibtihel Abdellatif, described the hearings in terms of a seismic event—“not an earthquake that destroys, but an earthquake that builds.”

Ozubulu Church Massacre: Kingsley Ekeoma ‘Escobar’ Not Connected To Incident, Demands Apology From Sun
The Ozubulu church massacre has opened a new discourse about poor journalism in Nigeria. And the rush to publish unfounded and unsubstantiated stories in the media by big and small media houses and even in blogs by bloggers, who most of the time copy from websites of big media outlets, hoping that they have verified their stories thoroughly before publishing.

When the incident happened at St Philip church in Ozubulu in Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra state, every media and the social media users jumped on it like every other news. But sooner than expected the truer picture is beginning to emerge that the two businessmen the media rushed to involve in the incident are not part of it.

In one of them, another man whose name and the video was wrongly and defame-ably connected to the incident has threatened to sue The Sun Newspaper unless he gets a unreserved apology from the said newspaper firm or else he would proceed to the law court.


The issue is that The Sun newspaper published a video of Mr Kingsley Ekeoma as the man who was sought after by the killers, who carried out the unspeakable massacre in the house of God on Sunday in Ozubulu.

The problem here is that these stories were never verified before these media outlets went to the air to publish barrages of unsubstantiated information. The stories in so many cases were incoherent and names were badly mangled and got even unsuspecting readers confused as who is the real person and where he is actually from.

Escobar has threatened to institute a lawsuit against The Sun newspaper and the police for defamation of character.
According to him, he is neither from Ozubulu nor has he ever visited South Africa in his lifetime.

IPOB Call For Referendum Is NOT War – Nigeria Never Stopped The War Against Biafra

Published

on

While Biafrans have been conducting their activities for restoration of Biafra peacefully; both locally and internationally, asking for a referendum, many one Nigerianists have been scaring the gullible with wars and rumors of war.
 
I want to make it categorically clear to everyone that referendum is not war and that the Biafra war never really ended as Nigerian government has systematically continued to eliminate Biafrans in every way possible and at any given opportunity. The reality is that, while the Biafrans stopped fighting, the Nigerian government have been killing Biafrans in different ways. The following are some of the ways, Nigeria government have been killing
 
1. AN ESTIMATED 90% OF THOSE WHO DIE IN NIGERIAN ROADS DAILY ARE BIAFRANS
 
They made sure that the industries in Biafraland does not function and as a result, Biafrans must travel out of their homeland to make living. They made sure that goods are not imported through Biafran shores so that Biafrans must travel to Lagos to bail their goods at a rate 3 times higher than what the Yorubas and Hausas pay at the same ports. Everyday hundreds of people die on Nigerian roads in different ways. Have you ever asked yourself who are those dying on the roads every day, since there is in existent or accurate statistical data in Nigeria? An estimated 90% of those who die in Nigerian roads daily are Biafrans. The average number of Biafrans who lose their lives in Nigerian highways while trans-versing the length and breadth of the country to make ends meet, far exceeds the number that will die in a well defined war. So stop scaring us with war because we are at war already.
 
2. LACK OR INADEQUATE HEALTH FACILITIES, PERSONNEL AND DRUGS.
 
About 95% of deaths related to illness in hospitals or at home in Biafraland was caused by the lack of modern drugs, no modern diagnostic equipments and because our best doctors and nurses has traveled to Abuja, Lagos and abroad to take care of the sick while our sick ones have no one attend to them. Do you know that many of your dead ones would have been saved, had it been we have a real hospital like the ones your politicians run to in Europe and America?. The worst part is that, this is a well planned strategy by Nigerian government to exterminate Biafrans, but the gullible will never understand this no matter how educated they claim to be.
 
3. EVER ASKED YOURSELF THE OWNERS OF THE VEHICLES BEING ADVERTISED BY CUSTOMS ALL THE TIME?
 
Unfortunately these abandoned properties belong to very hardworking Biafrans abroad. Some of them have committed suicide as a result of the seizure of their hard earned goods. Some have died of high Blood Pressure. Some have gone mad because some of these good equates to decades of savings. Yes, years of hardwork by Biafrans, that is what you see being advertised by devilish Nigerian customs. Sometimes they kill the owners of this vehicles, just because he or she is a Biafran, after all nobody will say anything. Now which other war is greater than this?
 
4. FULANI HERDSMEN ARE GOING FROM COMMUNITY TO COMMUNITY KILLING PEOPLE.
 
Didn’t you hear of Agatu genocide, Uzo-Uwani and other communities in Enugu state that were wiped out by these state sponsored terrorist group? Yet not even a single Fulani Herdsmen has been arrested.What other war are you looking for?
 
5. EVERY NOW AND THEN BIAFRANS WILL BE ROUNDED UP AND MASSACRED IN THE STREETS OF NORTHERN NIGERIA
 
Biafrans are killed daily in northern Nigeria. Women and girls are raped and adopted daily and nothing will come out of it. Yet you think you live in peace times in Nigeria. You think there is a greater war. How about Ezu River, National High School Aba, Nkpor 30th may 2016, Portharcourt 20th January 2017? Go and find out how many lost their lives and how many are still in hospital. Now, define war?
 
6. BIAFRAN PROPERTIES, MERCHANDISE, ARE BURNT AND DESTROYED EVERY NOW AND THEN IN ABUJA, LAGOS AND JOS.
 
Have you forgotten the estate with more than 500 Duplexes at airport road abuja that was leveled by Federal capital authorities in 2013? What about the hauses destroyed by El Rufai During Obasanjo Regime? Who owned those houses? Hausa Fulani or Yoruba? No! answer for yourself. Yet you think there is a greater war than this. How many markets has been looted and burnt in lagos since Ambode came in? Were they allowed to take their goods. Why did they destroy the markets in the middle of the Night? How many times has jos main market been set ablaze? Whow are the merchants in Jos main market? What exacltly is the meaning of war to you?
 
7. ZAKI BIAM AND ODI GENOCIDE BY OLUSEGUN OBASANJO AND BOMBING OF CALABAR WITH NAPALM BOMB BY MOHAMADU BUHARI
 
Ehee! You are waiting for fighters, bombers and missiles before you accept that war has not ended. Now explain to your friends what the meaning of bombing the entire town of Odi in Bayelsa state mean, if not war. Men, women and little children were wiped off the surface of the the earth by the war criminal, Olusegun Obasanjo. Men in Zaki Biam were completely wiped out by same Obasanjo. Napalm is a flammable liquid used in warfare. It is a mixture of a gelling agent and either gasoline (petrol) or a similar fuel. It was initially used as an incendiary device against buildings and later primarily as an anti-personnel weapon, as it sticks to skin and causes severe burns when on fire. First thing Buhari did, immediately he became the president of  Nigeria in 2015, was to bomb some parts of Cross River Biafraland with Napalm bomb. A bomb that is banned by the international community. Now, what other war are you talking about?
 
 
meanwhile, how may people have died in syria war? How many died in afghanistan? How many died in Sudan? Then find out how many Biafrans have died in Nigerian roads this year alone as a result of Nigerian police trying to extort money from them, not including accidents.
 
In conclusion, Biafrans are at war already and need not to be scared with wars and rumours of war. People die daily in war times and many more are dying daily in present day Biafraland occupied by Nigerian forces.
