Нарушения прав человека в Узбекистане

В г. Ургенче богослужения проходят в доме Станислава Тимофеевича Кима. 15.04.2018 без разрешения в дом вошли старший лейтенант милиции и 5 человек в гражданской одежде. Несмотря на требования хозяина дома представить документы, оправдывающие их действия и удостоверяющие их полномочия, пришедшие начали снимать все на видеокамеру, задавать вопросы и  изымать литературу.

Всех присутствующих (9 человек) доставили в отделение милиции, где каждого отдельно допросили. Брата С. Т. Кима допрашивал начальник отдела по борьбе с терроризмом. С. Т. Ким отказался отвечать на вопросы и писать объяснительную, считая действия представителей власти незаконными. Он просил вернуть ему Библию, но получил ответ, что это будет решать суд.

Христиане в г. Ургенче постоянно подвергаются преследованиям. Начиная с 2015 года С. Т. Ким неоднократно привлекался к административному суду (а в 2016 г. – и к уголовному) за хранение и распространение христианской литературы и миссионерскую деятельность.

Возникает вопрос: где гарантируемая свобода совести, закрепленная конституционно?

Portman’s Decision Is Not A ‘Warning Light’… It’s A Reminder…

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied

Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman, who was born Neta-Lee Hershlag in Jerusalem, Israel, has announced that she will not accept the Genesis Prize, sometimes called the Jewish Nobel prize in an award ceremony due to take place in Israel, citing her “distress” at recent events in the country.

The announcement that Portman had been selected for the honor was published on 7 November 2017 so it’s odd that the actress would wait five months to announce that she won’t attend the ceremony. Go figure.

Portman’s representative said: “[R]ecent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony”.

In 2012 Portman married Benjamin Millepied, a French dancer and choreographer, after the couple had a child in 2010. It has been reported that they married in a Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, California on August 4, 2012, but in 2014 it was reported that Millepied was studying to convert to Judaism. Usually, one converts before they marry in a Jewish ceremony. It seems Portman has issues with the natural order of things.

Portman’s latest virtue signalling decision, which has been described by some as a “Warning Light” for Israel, based upon the comments of Rachel Azaria, a member of the centrist Kulanu Party, is really a reminder of what Rabbi Meir Kahane Z”L said about Jews like Portman: “The Jew is upset because the nations of the world – the United Nations – lash him, brand him as racist and evil, hate him and openly demonstrate their desire to destroy him.”.

Kahane also wrote: “Let us not suffer from a national amnesia that causes us to forget who and what we are.”

Portman feels guilt and self-hate and sadly she’s forgotten her history and our traditions. The actress changed her name, moved to the United States and married outside her own faith, despite her public statement that she recognized the importance of raising her children as Jews.

Companies House Late Filing Penalties: Legalised Extortion

Companies House

Companies House

According to Katy Wilkinson, a Paralegal dealing with ‘Complex Litigation’ and representing The Registrar for Companies for England and Wales, says that the “Late Filing Penalty”, levied upon companies when an Annual Accounts, Annual Report and other filings are either not filed or filed late, is a mechanism used by The Registrar to “ensure all companies are treated the same”.

Wilkinson, who works for Optima Legal, a division of Capita plc, wrote that her client was unable to consider any mitigating circumstances and denied that The Registrar for Companies was practicing what amounted to an abuse of process.

But dormant companies, of which there are many tens of thousands incorporated in England and Wales, oftentimes inadvertently fail to file their annual accounts or other reports. Dormant companies pay no tax and there is no fee payable for filing the relevant form, but some directors are either not notified by their registered agent or reminders are sent to an old email address, leaving the company open to a Late Penalty of £150.

Despite this, Wilkinson’s claimed that the Penalty process is designed to treat all companies the same, but that isn’t true.

Each year, The Registrar for Companies uses its discretion to grant a wavier to the Penalty and many thousands of companies are not compelled to pay… In other words, the decision whether or not a company pays the Penalty is an arbitrary decision and will depend on a number of factors, including who makes the decision, how many waivers have been granted during the relevant period and the company’s historical filing pattern.

The Penalty, when levied against companies that owe no tax and would otherwise owe nothing had the online form been filed in time; reporting no business, no sales, no activity of any time, represents an extortionate ‘back-door’ tax on companies that is punitive in nature. The Registrar and its agents’ attempts to collect such a Penalty is nothing short of an abuse of power.

Five Flaws Of Muslim Faith For Ignoring Prophets That Mohammad Said To Honor

Western Powers

Western Powers

#1. Mohammad said, “The Prophet (Mohammad) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers.  Each one believes in God, His Angels, His Books, and His prophets.  (They say,) ‘We make no distinction between one or another of His prophets…’” (Quran 2:285)

Muslims believe in those prophets mentioned by name in Islamic sources, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, and Mohammad–may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, to name a few.  A general belief is held in those not mentioned by name, as God says: “And, indeed We have sent prophets before you (O Mohammad)” (Quran 40:78)

#2. Though mentioning prophets like Moses who said God gave him the law, Islam does not look at what Moses said is “righteous as all this law,” Deut 4:8. But that law offered equality and justice…

Why drive a car over a small boy’s arm for stealing a loaf of bread in a Muslim country? The Bible teaches to repay four sheep for a stolen sheep, and it is the father’s responsibility for not teaching his son until the son is 12 years old.

Eye for eye, stripe for stripe, life for life. For Muslims to ignore that law to take a life that God gave, is an act of judgment that God condemns and will punish.

#3. God also set the boundaries for the descendants of Ishmael when He gave the Middle East to Abraham for his seed, Genesis 15. Going past those boundaries is wrong as seen by the prophet Daniel who was endorsed by Jesus who was endorsed by Mohammad.

#4. Daniel saw a militant Muslim ram pushing north (into Russia), south (into Africa) and west to Europe and US in Daniel 8. But its pushiness (militancy) angers a goat that flies from the west to smash the ram and break its (militant) horns that are said to be the kings of Media and Persia. They were defeated, historians say, in 331 BC at the Battle of Arbela by Alexander the Great. But Gabriel said the vision is “at the time of the end.” Daniel 8:17. The Medes are now Iraq–this vision of 2500 years ago is half fulfilled. We will see the goat with a great horn (Trump[ets] were made from horns) defeat Iran (Persia).

Islam has no holy book that sees the future as the God of the Bible. They believe that Ishmael was spared by a ram caught in a Bush, and they celebrate it yearly in a feast called Al-Adha.

But the Bible says Isaac was spared. Which is the true holy book? The vision in Daniel 8 (above) shows God is sacrificing the militant Muslim ram (Iraq and Iran) to spare Isaac (Israel) because Iraq and Iran have wanted to drive in the sea. The Quran can’t compare with the Bible for its prophecies of the future, nor for the greatness of its laws.

#5. The life of Mohammad does not compare to the life of Jesus who divided BC from AD and who died pay for our sins to reconcile us to God. When Isaac asked Abraham where the sacrifice was, Abraham replied, “God will provide Himself a sacrifice.” Genesis 22:8. It was an amazing gift of His Son whom He resurrected three days later from a tomb with a Roman guard. Disciples who had fled for fear were later willing to die for Christ after seeing Him alive. Do we expect they died for a lie?

Muslims believe a lie if they live or die to kill others. Christ said, “Inasmuch as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to Me.” Matthew 25:40. He knew the value of human life and died to give it to us.

A militant Muslim ram will have its other horn (Iran) broken and then may all Muslims understand the Bible as the true holy book and that Christ loves each person individually and will give us eternal life if we repent of our ways and to understand the His way of life.

Who Invented Springs Of Seas And Direction Of Lighting?

God’s Wisdom Excels As Light Excels Darkness

‘By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. Proverbs 3:20’

What does the water cycle mean to you? It should increase your desire for wisdom. The great God meticulously created and governs all oceans, springs, and the water cycle, and His infinite wisdom, understanding, and knowledge are clearly displayed in them.

By this illustration of how the LORD God created and rules water, Solomon exalted the importance of three things – wisdom, understanding, and knowledge (Pr 3:19-20). The value of these things from God’s creation and providence should promote them to you. Observing the water cycle exalts the glory of God and the importance of true knowledge.

God sent a mist from the ground to water Eden (Gen 2:6). He broke up the fountains of the deep and opened the windows of heaven to flood the earth (Gen 7:11-12). A year later, He ordained the refraction of light in water to cause rainbows, to remind Noah and other saints there will not be another worldwide flood (Gen 9:12-17).

The water cycle is His (Eccl 1:7). Solomon, living around 900 B.C., knew about it in detail from the LORD. Elihu knew much about water. He wrote about clouds holding water vapor and distilling it in rain upon the earth (Job 36:26-33). He wrote about thunder, lightning, snow, tornadoes, ice, and many other aspects of water and weather (Job 37:1-24). Only God fully knows the springs of the seas, the direction of lightning, and other mysteries (Job 38:1-41).

Consider that a one-inch rainfall, which occurs often, brings 10-15 billion gallons of water on a typical U.S. county. How do puffy clouds, through which airplanes pass easily, hold billions of tons of water? The Lord balances them by His knowledge (Job 37:16). He numbers the clouds and holds the water in their bottles (Job 38:27).

Human discoveries involving water are only that – discoveries. They are men finally finding things God created and put in place long ago. The wisdom of the one merely finding the invention is infinitely inferior to the wisdom of the Inventor. Human inventions are no greater. They are men finally using the matter God created or properties God ordained long before. God’s wisdom excels man’s wisdom as light excels darkness.

Man is so ignorant that God must help him discover or invent (Pr 8:12; Is 28:23-29). Praise God for sharing His wisdom.

The blessed Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth, upholds all forms of water and all other things by the word of His power (Heb 1:3). The molecules of the universe consist – are held together – by His great power (Col 1:17), for in Him are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col 2:3). God made Him wisdom for the benefit of His people (I Cor 1:30). Men shall soon face Him as the Judge of the universe (Acts 17:30-31).

Reader, humble yourself before your Creator and pursue the wisdom and knowledge of His Word with all your heart. There is no other source of light or understanding anywhere else (Ps 119:128; Is 8:20; I Tim 6:3-5; II Tim 3:16-17). The thoughts of man are vain. God is willing to share His wisdom with those who will humble themselves before Him.
