Ordubad: a cradle of religious tolerance in the Caucasus

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta 

Written by: Peter Tase (Senior American Journalist – American Congress Library)

Religious architecture in the region of Ordubad, Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan (Azerbaijan), has established new paradigms in the shaping of Azerbaijani Islamic culture, interfaith dialogue, and has reflected a deep sense of conviction within its citizens and a unique enrichment of religious tolerance, cultural dialogue, and multicultural coexistence.  The Region of Ordubad is the symbol of a religious harmony, unique architectural treasures that enshrine the superior values of the architecture school founded by Ajami Ibn Abubakr Nakhchivani.  The city of Ordubad – the former Soviet Union’s capital of apricots (known globally for its famous apricots exported all the way to Moscow during the Cold War) –  displays to the world a great sense of Azerbaijani patriotism and is home of many beautiful mosques that ought to be visited by religious scholars, international

Paraguay and Peru: Political, Social and Environmental Issues

Editors: Karla Santiago
Book Description:
Chapter One examines natural resource management during the settlement and construction of Spanish Peru’s capital city from 1535-1625. Chapter Two discusses how the upstream Pampas basin (Huancavelica) was socially constructed as a water-abundant region to justify building a diversion canal that would conduct water to fulfill the increasing water need for agro exporting Ica. Chapter Three analyzes, from technical and environmental points of view, how the biodiesel and bioethanol production can improve environmental indicators of Peru in comparison with those derived of the use of oil-based products. Chapter Four discusses the reasons and scale of deforestation in both of Paraguay’s very divergent vegetative regions: Eastern Paraguay and the Chaco. Chapter Five analyzes the online practices (through Facebook) of local governments in Paraguay, and to examine the factors that influence these practices. Chapter six covers the current socio-economic reality of Paraguay by sharing valuable information and real life examples that were experienced in the ground by the author over the last year. The final chapter discusses Paraguay’s possible futures, considering authoritarian rule has been the norm throughout Paraguay’s 207 years of independent history. (Imprint: Nova)

Albania: el laboratorio del narcotráfico europeo

Albania: el laboratorio del narcotráfico europeoEl narcotráfico, exportación de armamentos, tráfico de personas, la inseguridad fronteriza y la corrupción en la función pública ha reinado en la Republica de Albania, en los últimos tres años bajo la gestión del primer ministro Edi Rama y sus seguidores neo – comunistas conducidos y auspiciados por George Soros, un empresario norte-americano que hacía cambio de monedas en el mercado negro de Hungría, en la época bajo la ocupación de Adolf Hitler.Las autoridades del Gobierno de Albania, encabezados por el pintor Edi Rama y otros delincuentes funcionarios públicos solo sirven para un irreversible, vertiginoso enriquecimiento ilícito y por enardecer al pueblo que sigue en miseria en un país en donde la democracia esta reemplazada por un régimen autocrático de narcotraficantes.En este contexto el representante de la Organización para la Seguridad y la Cooperación en Europa (OSCE), Embajador Bernd Borchardt indicó que el dinero de la droga está
siendo lavado a través de la economía informal de Albania; el monto alcanza más de 2 billones de euros que se utilizaran por los narco-traficantes a financiar las campañas políticas de varios candidatos del Partido Socialista, en el trascurso de las próximas semanas.

AZADIN FORUM

ABŞ-dan olan ekspert: “Onlar beynəlxalq hüququ qoruyarkən şəhid olub”

Leyla Məhərrəmova/AZADİNFORM. “Qarabağda 5 Azərbaycan hərbçisinin öldürülməsi Ağ Ev və Pentaqon tərəfindən pislənilməlidir”. Bu fikri Azadinform-a açıqlamasında amerikalı siyasi ekspert Piter Teys deyib.

O qeyd edib ki, ATƏT və Avropa İttifaqı üçün sakitliyi qorumaq və  bəyanat vermək adət halını alıb, lakin bunun Azərbaycanın suveren ərazilərində olan erməni silahlı qüvvələrinə əhəmiyyətli təsiri yoxdur.

P.Teys bildirib ki, Ermənistan hakimiyyətinin Azərbaycan ərazilərində işğalı davam etdirməsinin bir neçə səbəbi var: “Birinci səbəb BMT, ATƏT, ABŞ Dövlət Departamenti də daxil olmaqla beynəlxalq aktorların məsuliyyətsizliyidir. İkinci səbəb  Ermənistanın daxilindəki qarışıqlıq xalqın daha çox ziyan çəkməsinə səbəb olur, lakin hakimiyyət təmas xəttindən xalqın diqqətini yayındırmaq üçün istifadə edir”.

O əlavə edib ki, 5 əsgər beynəlxalq hüququ, öz torpaqlarını və Ermənistan tərəfindən hər gün pozulan  insan haqlarını qəhrəmancasına müdafiə edərkən şəhid olub: “Hesab edirəm ki, beynəxalq birlik Cənubi Qafqaz regionunda qanunun aliliyini müdafiə etməlidir və Ermənistan tərəfindən BMT TŞ-nin qətnamələrinə riayət edilməsini təmin etməlidir”.

Dear Old Nakhchivan BY PETER TASE MAR 30, 2017

Dear Old Nakhchivan
Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan, Azerbaijan’s westernmost province, welcomes everyone – including a novelist with no guidebook; it is heralded as a museum without walls. This region of Azerbaijan stretches on over 5,500 square kilometers and borders Armenia, Iran and Turkey.

Despite of the economic blockade imposed by Armenia government against Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan (for over two decades), the birthplace of Architect Ajami ibn Abubakr Nakhchivani – and home of Prophet Noah – has dedicated most of its territory solely to illuminating research into: ancient civilizations, global archeology, human history, Azerbaijani historiography and sociology and is testimony of ancient life and inventions that have enabled men to live in harmony with nature. Some of these culturally peculiar monuments are: Alibay Kehriz, Alinja Mint, Arafsa site and its Sacred Place.

Strolling in the Tabriz Street of Ordubad City, tourists will be fascinated by the historical monument of Alibay Kehriz (a kehriz constructed by Alibay):   it was built in the floating deposits of Ordubad river and is a simple shape kehriz monument that continues to preserve its characteristic nature up to this day. The stairs of this monument proceed down perpendicularly to the kehriz stream. The base, bottom half of kehriz has been enlarged in size, overtime: its length is 1.8 meters, it has a width of 1.5 meters and a height of 2.3 meters. The walls of Alibay Kehriz have been carved neatly, however at the top section there is a big rock piece that has remained untouched. Based on the early plans and its current structure: the length of the monument is 4.93 meters; its width is 1.5 meters; and has a depth from the ground surface of up to 4.56 meters. The height of the entrance from the ground surface is 1.9 meters. The fresh water resources of Alibay Kehriz is used by locals for daily consumption……………

by PETER TASE

As the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic (Azerbaijan) is preparing to be the world’s principal hub of Islamic culture (in 2018), a number of archeological monuments have facilitated a growth of various sectors such as cultural tourism, archeological expeditions, sustainable economic growth, it has concurrently expanded the knowledge about ancient history to many international experts.

All of these remarkable accomplishments are taking place in a vulnerable region where peace and security have a corroded resilience while Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic has been faced with an economic blockade imposed by Armenia, over the last twenty years. Despite these challenges the Government of Azerbaijan and the Autonomous Government of Nakhchivan under the leadership of Chairman Vasif Talibov (chairman of the Supreme Assembly of Nakhchivan) has pursued a vibrant diplomacy with other neighboring nations, admirable urban development, public works and a meticulous attention to education infrastructure and curriculum development evident on all education levels. All of these achievements have made Nakhchivan a region of Azerbaijan that has set a perfect example that could be emulated by other countries in Europe and Central Asia.
