«Dutchman's Golden Age» exhibition in Abu Dhabi


“The sketch is part of a group in which ­Rembrandt was looking for the right profile for depicting Jesus in a humanistic way,” says Rose-Marie Mousseaux, the chief curator of the museum. “You can see the intensity throughout the ­composition, and you can really feel it when you stand in front of the painting.”

Dutch Golden Age painting ­describes roughly a century of ­phenomenal artistic production, when Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and others, took to capturing the domestic surroundings and the social life of a country transformed by global trade. The painters worked to a high standard of naturalism, ­executing both history paintings and, influenced by Italian painting, ­Biblical and mythological scenes.

He, along with Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, discussed with the Pope "enhancing cooperation, consolidating dialogue, tolerance, human coexistence & important initiatives to achieve peace, stability and development for peoples and societies," according to this tweet...

American Evangelical Delegation met with #MBS


This wasn’t his first such trip: He and his fellow evangelical delegates had just visited the United Arab Emirates, and last year they traveled to Egypt to meet with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi. Moore told me they aim to build bridges between Islamic and Christian communities across the Middle East as a means of “making sure our community is thought of and represented.”

Good. Now, what is their real intention behind this meeting. I would like to know what they are up to when they meet with those who are either responsible for terrorist attacks or/and the war on Yemen. This is clearly not the way it goes, there is something bigger behind it. Probably arms sales? The religion is possibly not worth mentioning at all but only a mentionable reason to veil the actual one.

US cease to refuel Saudi jets midair henceforth


While the U.S. is still aligned with the Saudis and Emiratis and providing support in other ways, the end of midair refueling removes a controversial and tangible measure of support for the coalition, especially in light of international criticism of its targeting civilians.

Do the US now have grown a heart, or a brain? Maybe both simultaneously? We don't know, but I approve of this step towards peace, or at least a halting of war crimes committed in Yemen. Correct me if I behave naive again.

The battles in Hodeidah, Yemen


Aid agencies have long warned that fighting in Hodeidah risks escalating the dire humanitarian crisis in Yemen, where about half the population - some 14 million people - could soon be on the verge of famine.

I've got no words to describe this tremendously horrible inhuman catastrophe...

The hellpit of Yemen


Strikingly, they added, the relief shipment was financed by the United Arab Emirates — the same power that was sending warplanes screaming over the city as its officers commanded the assault on Hudaydah from the south.

Peace sells, but who's buying? Literally no-one. War sells so much more, and you can earn money on both sides of this land. In German, we call it Zuckerbrot und Peitsche, carrot and stick. Although it was never meant this way, it disgustingly fits this way.

Iran & Huthis nur Vorwand: Handelsmonopol als Grund für VAE-Offensive auf Jemens Haupthafen Hodeida


von Ali Özkök

Die Huthi-Miliz und ihre Verbündeten halten seit Jahren den Hafen am Roten Meer, der für die Nahrungsmittelversorgung einer Nation am Rande der Hungersnot nach Jahren des Krieges entscheidend ist. Sollten die Huthis nicht kampflos abziehen, könnte die Schlacht um Hodeida zum bisher größten urbanen Kampf zwischen Pro-Saudi-Truppen und der Schiiten-Miliz ausarten, die als pro-iranisch gilt. Die Folgen für Zivilisten in der Stadt, die rund 600.000 Einwohner zählt, könnten für die kriegsgeschüttelte Bevölkerung verheerend sein.

Am frühen Mittwochmorgen setzten die Koalitionstruppen Konvois von gepanzerten Fahrzeugen in Richtung Hodeida in Bewegung. In den sozialen Medien wurden vereinzelt Videos veröffentlicht, wie Saudi-Arabien und die Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate Hunderte von Kämpfern süd... Show more...
 

"Civilians Trapped": Major Assault On Yemen Port Begins; Saudi Ship Attacked


The biggest and potentially most catastrophic battle in terms of
civilian casualties
has begun in the three-year war between the Saudi
coalition and Iranian-aligned Houthi rebels. The assault began early
Wednesday after days of the United Nations warning against the
operation
which also involves the UAE and United States as leading the
campaign on the Houthi held port city of Al Hudaydah.

When discussing viable options for private and secure messengers here we often complained that Moxie Marlinspike is vehemently opposed to open up Signal's server source code in order to enable an alternative infrastructure, let alone a federated network.

And now, guess what happened.

Amazon threatens to suspend Signal's AWS account over censorship circumvention


Image/photo
Direct access to Signal has been censored in Egypt, Oman, Qatar, and UAE for the past 1.5 years. These countries attempt to block Signal by blocking connections to Signal servers from all ISPs. [...]
With Google Cloud and AWS out of the picture, it seems that domain fronting as a censorship circumvention technique is now largely non-viable in the countries where Signal had enabled this feature. [...]
In the meantime, the censors in these countries will have (at least temporarily) achieved their goals. Sadly, they didn’t have to do anything but wait.
