    • Issam Nassar - Photographing the First World War in the Middle East: The Suez Campaign in Palestine


      from Georgetown CCAS Added 76 1 0

      The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies & the Georgetown Institute for Global History are proud to present the 2013-2014 Middle East and North Africa Public Lecture Series and Workshops: "The New Middle East: The First World War 100 Years Later" Photographing the First World War in the Middle East: The Suez Campaign in Palestine, 1915 Issam Nassar Associate Professor, Illinois State University Thursday, March 6, 2014 6:00 p.m. CCAS Boardroom, ICC 241 The Fourth Ottoman Army, lead by Jamal Pasha, launched a failed campaign to conquer the Suez Canal in 1915. The war effort was photographed by local Jerusalem photographers Khalil Raad and John Whiting. Their photographs depicted the celebrations in Palestine surrounding the start of the war and the arrival of the troops as well as commanders, military installations and trenches. They illustrate Ottoman preparation for the war as well as the mindset of the leadership at the time. Using the photographs as historical documents, Dr. Nassar will examine the role photography played in the war and propaganda efforts and question the assumed objectivity of the pictures in reflecting the realities of the Syrian region at the time. Furthermore, his talk will raise questions regarding Jamal Pasha’s vision of himself, his troops, and the general populace. The intention is to challenge the presumed historicism by photography by using not only the images themselves, but also memoirs and dairies from the period. Issam Nassar is Associate Professor of Middle East history at Illinois State University, and co-editor of Jerusalem Quarterly. He is the author and editor of a number of books, the latest being: The Storyteller of Jerusalem: the Life and Times of Wasif Jawharriyeh, 1904-1948, co-edited with Salim Tamari. Nassar writes on the history of photography of the Middle East and his current work is on photography of the Great War in Ottoman Lands.

      • Sage of Quay Radio - Deanna Spingola - The Holocaust and The Forbidden Perspective (April 2015)


        from JJT76 Added 8 0 0

        Thank you, Mike Williams and Deanna Spingola - very controversial and informative interview! Published on 25 Apr 2015 Tonight Deanna Spingola returns to the show. Deanna is an author, researcher and radio host. She investigates government and corporate corruption as it relates to the faltering liberties of American citizens and the war-targeted populations of other countries. And as you will hear in this interview – she does not shy away from controversial issues. Deanna’s recent books include her Ruling Elite trilogy along with her newest book Screening Sandy Hook: Causes and Consequences. The topic of this show will deal with the Deanna’s extensive research into the Holocaust and specifically whether the number of 6 million Jews is real and if it’s not real then where did it come from. For many, much of what you will hear in this show will be controversial and for some very controversial because this is a version of history you have never been taught or been made aware of. It is, for all intents and purposes, forbidden knowledge. I encourage everyone to listen with an open mind as we recall the words of Winston Churchill; “History is written by the victors.” Deanna's website: http://spingola.com/ Deanna's books (Amazon): http://tinyurl.com/mbbqez8 Nick Kollerstrom's book - Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust: Myth & Reality: http://tinyurl.com/ml5fxlq Holocaust 6 Million References: http://thecrowhouse.com/holohoax.html The Late Benjamin Freedman: The Jewish / Khazarian Connection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4brU...

The question is what happened to Yap, and Palau, and Pohnpei, and the Marshalls, and the Marianas during the years prior to World War I. How did the local people fare in general? Drawing on his deep knowledge of Micronesia and recent research, Father Hezel offers some broad conclusions on the German period in Micronesia, and on the wider colonial experience. He reminds us that “Things are not always what they seem.”
