THIS DAY March 30

Posted by Shiva on March 31, 2009


March 30, 2006: Jenin, Judia Samaria (Palestine). Palestinian authorities have disbanded a youth orchestra from a West Bank refugee camp and barred the conductor from her studio after she directed a concert for a group of Holocaust survivors in Israel, a local official said on Sunday.Adnan Hindi of the Jenin camp called the Holocaust a “political issue” and accused the orchestra’s conductor of unfairly dragging the children into a politics.
The dispute underscores Palestinian sensitivities over acknowledging Jewish suffering, which many fear could weaken their own historical grievances against Israel. Ignorance and even denial of the Holocaust is widespread in Palestinian society.
At last Wednesday’s concert in Holon, most of the Holocaust survivors did not know the youths were Palestinians from the West Bank, a rare sight in Israel these days. And the youths, who range in age from 11 to 18, had no idea they were performing for people who lived through Nazi genocide — or even what the Holocaust was.
Hindi said that conductor Wafa Younis, an Israeli Arab living in Israel, has been banned from the camp, and the apartment where she taught the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra has been boarded up.
“She exploited the children,” said Hindi, the head of the camp’s “popular committee,” which takes on municipal duties. “She will be forbidden from doing any activities … We have to protect our children and our community.”
The Holocaust happened, but we are facing a similar massacre by the Jews themselves,” Hindi said. “We lost our land, and we were forced to flee and we’ve lived in refugee camps for the past 50 years.”
Younis, the conductor, denied the issue was political, saying camp officials wanted to take over the orchestra to get its funding.
“They want to destroy this group. It’s a shame, it’s a tragedy. What did these poor, elderly people do wrong? What did these children do wrong?” she said.
March 30, 2006: Doha, Qatar. Sudan’s president, who is sought by an international court on charges of war crimes in Darfur, received a warm welcome Sunday in Qatar, where he will attend this week’s Arab League summit.
A smiling President Omar al-Bashir, wearing a traditional Sudanese robe and white turban, was greeted with an embrace and a kiss by Qatar‘s emir in a red-carpet welcome at Doha‘s airport on Sunday. He later had coffee with the emir and the head of the Arab League. The two-day summit begins Monday.
The 22-nation Arab League has already said it would not enforce the International Criminal Court’s arrest order for al-Bashir issued on March 4, and the Sudanese leader visited Eritrea, Egypt and Libya over the past week in a show of defiance.
Arab countries have been critical of the international tribunal’s decision to issue an arrest warrant, arguing it would further destabilize Sudan as the Darfur conflict enters its seventh year. The Arab-dominated Sudanese government’s battle against ethnic African rebels in the western region has killed up to 300,000 people and driven 2.5 million from their homes since 2003, according to the U.N.

March 30, 2009. Baghdad, Iraq. U.S. and Iraqi troops exchanged gunfire Sunday with Sunni militants in central Baghdad in a second day of clashes following the arrest of a local leader of Sunni security volunteers who had broken with al-Qaida.
Iraqi soldiers aim their rifles during a search operations after a gunfight sparked Saturday at the dominantly Sunni neighborhood of Fadhil in BaghdadMarch 30, 2009. Baghdad, Iraq. The bomb went off near a busy market in the capital’s Shaab district, a mainly Shia area, officials say. Iraqi police believe it was a deliberate attempt to kill the maximum number of civilians possible
The car with the bomb was parked near a bus terminal between a hospital and a busy market.
Iraqi officials say four children and four women were among those killed in the blast, which happened on Thursday afternoon.
No-one has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.“I tried to escape and the fire was everywhere,” Umm Hatam, 45, who had been heading home from the market with her shopping when the bomb went off, told the AFP news agency. “I saw the dead bodies of women and children, and about 10 small buses were burnt.”
Police think it was a deliberate attempt to slaughter civilians at random, probably by al-Qaeda in Iraq, as a way of sending a message that “we are still here”
March 30, 2009. Kenilworth, Britain. An Afghan man who came to this country illegally, attacked and raped a Kenilworth teenager in an alleyway just hours after arriving in the town.

Rapist Jawid Armani was caught soon after the attack on the 16-year-old girl as she was walking home at 1.30am in the morning on March 14.
Armani, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty through an interpreter to two charges of raping the Kenilworth girl.
Prosecutor Iain Willis said the attack took place in a dark alleyway in Kenilworth as the girl was walking home at 1.30am after a night out with friends.
She was attacked from behind by Armani who forced her to perform an act of oral sex on him, which is also classed as rape, before he proceeded to rape her.
Afterwards the girl fled from the alleyway and raised the alarm with someone who lived nearby.
The traumatised girl described her attacker and Armani was found and arrested a short time later.
Armani said he had travelled to the UK in a lorry and had only been in the country for 48 hours when he got out in Kenilworth.
He claimed he could not remember what had happened because he was very drunk at the time.

On this day Main Events

March 30 1135. Birth of Maimonides [Moses Ben Maimon] Còrodoba Spain, philosopher/physician
Maimonides’ full name was Moshe ben Maimon (Hebrew: משה בן מימון) and his Arabic name was أبو عمران موسى بن ميمون بن عبد الله القرطبي الإسرائيلي (Abu Imran Mussa bin Maimun ibn Abdallah al-Qurtubi al-Israili). However, he is most commonly known by his Greek name, Moses Maimonides (Μωυσής Μαϊμονίδης), which literally means, “Moses, son of Maimon”, like his name in Hebrew and Arabic.
Maimonides was a Jewish rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Spain, Morocco and Egypt during the Middle Ages. He was one of the various medieval Jewish philosophers who also influenced the non-Jewish world. Although his copious works on Jewish law and ethics were initially met with opposition during his lifetime, he was posthumously acknowledged to be one of the foremost rabbinical arbiters and philosophers in Jewish history. Today, his works and his views are considered a cornerstone of Orthodox Jewish thought and study.
March 30 1451 Birth of Mehmed II [Fâtih] Sultan of Turkey (1451-81)

Mehmed II (Ottoman Turkish: محمد ثانى Meḥmed-i sānī, Turkish: II. Mehmet), (also known as el-Fatih (الفاتح), “the Conqueror”, in Ottoman Turkish, or, in modern Turkish, Fatih Sultan Mehmet) (March 30, 1432 – May 3, 1481) was Sultan of the Ottoman Empire for a short time from 1444 to 1446, and later from 1451 to 1481. At the age of 21, he conquered Constantinople, bringing an end to the medieval Byzantine Empire. From this point onward, he claimed the title of Caesar in addition to his other titles.

Today’s Islamic Trivia Special

Let’s be Frank in Europe – On illegal immigration from Libya

Illegal immigration is the greatest challenge facing Malta at present – even residents of our core villages such as Balzan are extremely concerned about the influx of illegal immigrants – let alone coastal areas such as Birzebbuga and St Paul’s Bay – and of course the special problems being faced by areas with detention centres such as Marsa and Safi.
Illegal immigration will not go away by talking about it – we need to tackle illegal immigration with increased vigour.
Italy’s Interior Minister Roberto Maroni speaking recently on RAI Radio warned that two million Africans are ready to travel from Libya to Europe.

“Rivers of illegal immigrants” are ready to cross from Libya to Europe, Maroni saidThe root of the problem

Why is this happening?

Most of these illegal immigrants arrive by sea from Libya. Illegal immigration on this scale is happening because Gaddafi is not stopping it. He has actually been urging Africans to emigrate to Europe illegally.
To understand why this illegal immigration has reached Biblical proportions you need to understand Gaddafi’s reasoning.
Gaddafi’s mindset is that Europe is in debt with Africa because of Europe’s colonial past.

Gaddafi has said “Our natural resources were robbed. Either you give us back our resources or you invite us in your countries.”
Gaddafi is on record, on different occasions, to have stated:

1. “We are protesting so we must go to Europe in search of work.”

2. “We must force them (the Europeans) to pay compensation.”

3. “We have the right to go to Europe because we go after our wealth; we refer to gold, diamonds, iron and copper. They left us empty. We go after our stolen wealth.”

Demetra Stylianopoulou, her daughter Maria Stylian Klug, and her infant granddaughter Demetra, were among those who were murdered by these good Muslims – falling to their death.The Islamic group, Ezzedine Kassam, claimed responsibility. So did the Arab Revolutionary Cells – an Abu Nidal subsidiary.
In their release they said the bombing was in retaliation for the previous week’s U.S. military confrontation with Libya in the Gulf of Sidra. The timing and admission serve to confirm that Abu Nidal did the dastardly deed on behalf of Libya, his primary benefactor.
The U.S. State Department promoted the idea that the bombing had been the work of May Elias Mansur, a Palestinian woman who was a member of the Abu Nidal’s Syrian National Social Party, and PLO Colonel Hawari, both with close ties to Yasser Arafat.
Muhammad Rashid was arrested in Greece but only served four years in prison for murdering a child and multiple others.
