Import heroic Nigerians to disarm the violent ones.
@Mother It isn't normal for one people to displace another in their own religion.
"An Italian Carabinieri police captain who worked in the neighborhood, Nunzio Carbone, was his godfather, or sponsor, at Saturday’s baptism service.
Carbone and his fellow policemen helped Ogah get his immigration papers. The Nigerian now works as a stockman at a warehouse for a charity organization. "
Bet it's a pro-migration charity.
This is so pozzed.
They find one migrant who actually isn't a criminal and throw open the Vatican to him.
Although being a former illegal immigrant I suppose he was a criminal <:smug:368620082198216704>
I'm sure his children will be law-abiding Italians.
Waiting for miracles at this point.
Modern idea of "Semitism' has nothing in common with the ancient world
Ancient Levant was composed of several distinct cultures such as Hellenic, Semitic, Assyrian-Armenian-Babylonian type, the Canaanite world and all non-Jewish polities existing from Judea to Galilee, as well as pagan herding cultures living in the Arabian peninsula
Then we move towards Berbers, Hellenes and Egyptians living from Egypt to Mauritania, the Nubians, Phoenicians, Carthagians
No, it has a lot in common.
this was obviously a meeting place of distinct strains of races, types, derivations, spiritual outlooks
Semitic peoples shared then, as they do now, a commonality of language and race.
It ain'nt necesarily sooooooo
"Semitic peoples' yes, but ancient Levant wasn't even majority semitic to begin with
This is like saying because Germans are different from Russians, "indo-European" isn't a viable category.
Moderns when they say "Semitic" they apply it to historical period as if all Middle East was some kind of natural semitic breeding ground
That allows not so clever types such as Varg to declare that Semites hate nature and everything because they live in desert
Forgetting that the "desert" was a polytheist place for thousands of years
With cults similar or not similar to European ones
Canaanites for example praised El and the goddess Asherah in a pretty "Roman" fashion
Erecting altars under tree shades and offering sacrifices
i was talking about Semites and then you popped in saying not all middle easterners were semites.
Has nothing to do with what I was saying.
Yes, but I began with "Modern idea of semitism...." not mentioning you specifically at all
So you were talking to yourself at me?
are you an academic?
You should be.
"Ideal-types" that intellectuals tend to harbor tend to distort things, sometimes fatally
You see yourself as more pragmatic?
Hey, what's up?
No, I do not mean to propose pragmatism, but sensibility
