This morning I learned the Bardo Museum was once the home of the Beys, the Sultans of the Caliphate. When the Bey of Algiers struck the king’s diplomat with a fly-swatter,  King Charles sent Virginia’s ancestor to take Algiers. My great grandfather sailed the U.S. Enterprise to Tripoli to do battle with the Bey there, who lived in the Bardo Museum.  Throughout this blog you will read my declarations where I say I am the anointed Champion of Art. The Roza Mira prophecy is in play.

It is alleged de Bourmont’s invasion of Algiers was motivated by the Bourbon Restoration. How strange to behold the story of Opal Whiteley. But, what is truly exciting is the discovery of Article Eleven, that is a signed Declaration that claims the United States is a Secular Democracy, and not a Christian nation. Alas, I have the ammunition to defeat the Christian-right and the Crazy End Time leaders that are running for more political offices in the name of Jesus. The American ISIS, is doomed!

If France and the United States wanted to declare was on ISIS, then within this post is secular permission.

If anyone saw the attack on the Bardo coming, it was I. I will spend sometime going into the archives and retrieving the proof.

The conquest of Algeria was initiated in the last days of the Bourbon Restoration by Charles X as an attempt to increase his popularity amongst the French people, particularly in Paris, where many veterans of the Napoleonic Wars lived. He believed he would bolster patriotic sentiment and turn eyes away from his domestic policies.

Symbolic Reopening After Terror Attacks

collapse story

TUNIS — Tunisia’s Bardo museum held a ceremonial reopening on Tuesday a week after gunmen claiming alliance with ISIS killed 20 foreign tourists in an attack aimed at wrecking the country’s vital tourism industry.

Several thousand Tunisians and foreign visitors to an international forum also marched in the capital Tunis to show solidarity with the Bardo victims who included Japanese, Spanish, Italians and Colombians. Tunisia is keen to show it can recover from the attack which threatens to damage tourism and mar the country’s young democracy four years after a 2011 uprising ended the one-party rule of Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali.

Last Wednesday, at least two Tunisian men opened fire on tourists as they got off buses at the Bardo, in one of the worst such incidents in the North African nation for a decade. Security forces later shot dead the two men, who had been recruited at mosques in Tunisia and subsequently trained at a jihadist camp in Libya.

Tunisians carrying national flags and waving “Visit Tunisia” signs gathered behind barriers outside the Bardo, where dignitaries were invited under tight security to a symbolic reopening with an orchestra playing inside the museum hall. The Bardo, which has a famed collection of art and artifacts covering more than 3,000 years of history, is expected to welcome back the public over the weekend.

The attack, however, has underscored how Islamist militants are trying to turn their sights on North Africa as a new front beyond their main battlefield of Iraq and Syria, with ISIS loyalists already gaining a foothold in neighboring Libya.

 باي/Bey, Arabic: بك/ Bek, Persian: بگ/ Beg or Beyg) is a Turkish and Altaic title for chieftain, traditionally applied to the leaders (for men) of small tribal groups. The title for female royal families was Begum. Beg means as great. The regions or provinces where “beys” ruled or which they administered were called beylik, roughly meaning “emirate” or “principality” in the first case, “province” or “governorate” in the second (the equivalent of duchy in other parts of Europe). Today, the word is still used informally as a social title for men (somewhat like the English word “mister”). Unlike “mister” however, it follows the name and is used generally with first names and not with last names.

Article 11[edit]

Article 11 has been a point of contention in popular culture disputes on the doctrine of separation of church and state as it applies to the founding principles of the United States. Some religious spokesmen claim that—despite unanimous ratification by the U.S. Senate in English—the text which appears as Article 11 in the English translation does not appear in the Arabic text of the treaty.[11] Some historians, secular and religious, have argued that the phrase specifically refers to the government and not the culture, that it only speaks of the founding and not what America became or might become,[13] and that many Founding Fathers and newspapers described America as a Christian nation during the early Republic.[14]

Article 11

Article 11 reads:

Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims]; and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

According to Frank Lambert, Professor of History at Purdue University, the assurances in Article 11 were “intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers.” Lambert writes,

“By their actions, the Founding Fathers made clear that their primary concern was religious freedom, not the advancement of a state religion. Individuals, not the government, would define religious faith and practice in the United States. Thus the Founders ensured that in no official sense would America be a Christian Republic. Ten years after the Constitutional Convention ended its work, the country assured the world that the United States was a secular state, and that its negotiations would adhere to the rule of law, not the dictates of the Christian faith. The assurances were contained in the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797 and were intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers.[15]

The treaty was printed in the Philadelphia Gazette and two New York papers, with only scant public dissent, most notably from William Cobbett.[16]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli

The Treaty of Tripoli (Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary) was the first treaty concluded between the United States and Tripolitania, signed at Tripoli on November 4, 1796, and at Algiers (for a third-party witness) on January 3, 1797. It was submitted to the Senate by President John Adams, receiving ratification unanimously from the U.S. Senate on June 7, 1797, and signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the land on June 10, 1797.

The treaty was a routine diplomatic agreement. It has attracted attention in recent decades because of a clause stating that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

“Barbary” was not always a unified political entity. From the 16th century onwards, it was divided into the political entities of the Regency of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripolitania (Tripoli). Major rulers during the times of the Barbary states’ plundering parties included the Pasha or Dey of Algiers, the Bey of Tunis and the Bey of Tripoli, all subjects who were anxious to get rid of the Ottoman sultan, but who were de facto independent rulers.[3]

Before then, the territory was usually divided between Ifriqiya, Morocco, and a west-central Algerian state centered on Tlemcen or Tiaret. Powerful Berber dynasties such as the Almohads (12th century) and briefly thereafter the Hafsids, occasionally unified it for short periods. From a European perspective its “capital” or chief city was often considered to be Tripoli in modern-day Libya, although Marrakesh in Morocco was the largest and most important Berber city at the time. In addition, Algiers in Algeria and Tangiers in Morocco were also sometimes seen[by whom?] as the “capital”.

Purchase of Christian captives in the Barbary States.

The first United States military land action overseas, executed by the U.S. Marines and Navy, was the Battle of Derne, Tripoli, in 1805. It formed part of an effort to destroy all of the Barbary pirates, to free the American slaves in captivity, and to put an end to piracy acts between these warring tribes on the part of the Barbary states, which were themselves member states of the Ottoman Empire. The opening line of the “Marine’s Hymn” refers to this action: “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli…”. This was the first time the U.S. Marine Corps took part in offensive actions outside of the United States.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_pirates

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_Algiers_in_1830

The invasion of Algiers began on 5 July 1830 with a naval bombardment by a fleet under Admiral Duperré, and a landing by troops under Louis Auguste Victor de Ghaisne, comte de Bourmont. The French quickly defeated the troops of Hussein Dey, the Ottoman ruler, but native resistance was widespread.

In 1827, Hussein Dey, Algeria’s Ottoman ruler, demanded that the French pay a 28-year-old debt, contracted in 1799 by purchasing supplies to feed the soldiers of the Napoleonic Campaign in Egypt. The French consul Pierre Deval refused to give answers satisfactory to the dey, and in an outburst of anger, Hussein Dey touched the consul with his fly-whisk. Charles X used this as an excuse to initiate a blockade against the port of Algiers. The blockade lasted for three years, and was primarily to the detriment of French merchants who were unable to do business with Algiers, while Barbary pirates were still able to evade the blockade. When France in 1829 sent an ambassador to the dey with a proposal for negotiations, he responded with cannon fire directed toward one of the blockading ships. The French then determined that more forceful action was required.[2]

King Charles X decided to organise a punitive expedition on the coasts of Algiers to punish the “impudence” of the dey, as well as to root out Barbary corsairs who used Algiers as a safe haven. The naval part of the operation was given to Admiral Duperré, who advised against it, finding it too dangerous. He was nevertheless given command of the fleet. The land part was under the orders of Louis Auguste Victor de Ghaisne, comte de Bourmont.

On 16 May, a fleet comprising 103 warships and 464 transports departed Toulon, carrying a 37,612-man strong army. The ground was well-known, thanks to observations made during the First Empire, and the Presque-isle of Sidi Ferruch was chosen as a landing spot, 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Algiers. The vanguard of the fleet arrived off Algiers on 31 May, but it took until 14 June for the entire fleet to arrive.

In the 1790s, France had contracted to purchase wheat for the French army from two Jewish merchants in Algiers, Messrs. Bacri and Boushnak, and was in arrears paying them. These merchants had themselves debts to the dey and claimed inability to pay those debts until France paid its debts to them. The dey had unsuccessfully negotiated with Pierre Deval, the French consul, to rectify this situation, and he suspected Deval of collaborating with the merchants against him, especially when the French government made no provisions for repaying the merchants in 1820. Deval’s nephew Alexandre, the consul in Bône, further angered the dey by fortifying French storehouses in Bône and La Calle against the terms of prior agreements.[3]

After a contentious meeting in which Deval refused to provide satisfactory answers on 29 April 1827, the dey struck Deval with his fly whisk. Charles X used this slight against his diplomatic representative to first demand an apology from the dey, and then to initiate a blockade against the port of Algiers. When the dey responded to a demand to send an ambassador to France to resolve the incident with cannon fire directed toward one of the blockading ships, the French determined that more forceful action was required.[4]

Opal Whiteley Emerges From Pan’s Labyrinth

opal4 opal5 opal6 opal12 opal13opal15 opal17 opal18 opal19 opal20 opal22 opal23 opal24cor11

Last night I watched a documentary about the author, Opal Whiteley, on PBS. I was amazed, for here is Ofelia from Pan’s Labyrinth that I have connected to my dear friend, Virginia Hambley, who is kin to the House of Bourbon. She has stayed in Castles in France. I asked her to marry me a week after she proposed to me, down on one knee. I glued the cote of arms of the House of Orleans on an old menu. The next day, she had no memory of this event where I presented her the Louisiana Territory.

Princess Françoise asserted that she was the illegitimate daughter of Prince Henri d’Orléans and was taken to Oregon where she was adopted and given the name Opal Whiteley. The truth or otherwise of her claims to royal descent have always been the subject of fierce controversy, but she was consistent in maintaining them throughout her life, and her grave bears her royal designation alongside her adoptive name.”

Virginia looks like Ofelia in Pan’s Labyrinth which is about the restoration of the House of Bourbon. Virginia’s ancestor, Louis-Auguste-Victor, Count de Ghaisnes de Bourmont, was engaged in the restoration Bourbon monarchy, from the day of its fall. Louis kept the rose alive. The fascist dictator, Franco, did not want to restore Juan Borbon to the throne because of connections to Freemasonry. That Victor de Bourmont became a Vichy puppet of the Nazis, and was tried for war crimes, is right out of the Labyrinth script.

Opal Whiteley went to the University of Oregon and gave lessons to children about nature. Virginia was studying to become a Oceanogrpaher  Wintergreen College when she got into a terrible accident when returning from a field trip. She suffers from memory loss. Opal Whiteley had a photographic memory, like Rena Easton, who reconstructed the five page letter she sent me after she tore it up and burned it. She did the same for the long letter she sent me that began.

“Here I am!”

She had read my blog about the author and illustrator, Fanny Corey who is famous for her Fairy Books. Rena has read something in my letter that freaked her out. I believe my muse has suffered from mental illness most of her life. My sister also was mentally ill. Her 272 page autobiography was disappeared, a ghost writer saying she was not well when she told her own story.

The normal folks of Cottage Grove thought their most famous citizens was nuts when she declared she was a Princess. Opal died in a mental ward after being given a labotomy.

I beg Rena Easton to forgive me, my response to her fear. Our correspondence will become a book. But, I don’t have much time. I am having trouble with my prostrate. I am recovering from another operation that was not successful. I went and saw Virginia two days before this operation, and presented her a photo of her late cat. I talked to my muse, Marilyn Reed, about coming to the end of my story, and leaving the planet. Today is her birthday. Happy Birthday!

My mother, Rosemary, would tell her children she had a scholarship to Camarillo State Mental Hospital. I believe all the women I have bonded with in this lifetime have suffered from mental illness. Virginia is very eccentric. She was my girlfriend for ten years. One day she complained about not being married, not so much as a proposal.  Princess Françoise de Bourbon-Orleans is the keeper of ‘The Promise’  that one day, your Prince will come.

This blog is my diary.

The huge question to ask is who were the backers of Lousi de Bourmont in his almost single-handed attempt to restore the House of Borubons to several thrones? Is Louis of Bourbon blood? If so, is Virginia Hambley “of the blood” and in line for a throne? Is She the neglected Rose at the center of Pan’s Labyrinth that a possible descendant of the Rougemont Knights Templar has found? Virginia has around six nieces and nephews.

I’ve considered doing illustrations for most of my books. C’mon Rena. Show yourself. Do it for Montana! You were Rosamond’s Muse. This is your State History. You got some major bragging rights! Put this in your resame. At least send me copies of photos of you that I can work from to illustrate.

‘Capturing Beauty’. I want your side of the story! I will got to the Governor and have you declared Montana’s State Treasure who brought the history of Royal Rosamond and Fanny Cory, together!

One of the more extraordinary members of the San Luigi Orders was Princess Françoise de Bourbon-Orléans (1897-1992). She was admitted to the Order of the Crown of Thorns in 1963.

Princess Françoise asserted that she was the illegitimate daughter of Prince Henri d’Orléans and was taken to Oregon where she was adopted and given the name Opal Whiteley. The truth or otherwise of her claims to royal descent have always been the subject of fierce controversy, but she was consistent in maintaining them throughout her life, and her grave bears her royal designation alongside her adoptive name.

She was noted early on as being a child prodigy of extraordinary intelligence, with particular abilities in nature study and the ability to memorize and classify vast amounts of information on animals and plants. Soon, The Oregonian began a series of laudatory articles about her. She published what she presented as her childhood diaries in The Story of Opal, which gained wide attention and lasting acclaim.

After leaving university, she became a public lecturer. In 1923, the financial support of Lord Grey of Falloden enabled her to come to England. Travelling to France, she met and was accepted by Prince Henri’s mother, also Princess Françoise, and she provided her with the necessary funds to travel to Udaipur in India, where Prince Henri had died, so as to discover more of his life there. In India, she was the guest of the Maharaja of Udaipur  and made detailed photographic and written accounts of her experiences.

In 1925 she returned to England, leaving for Rome in 1926 and then on to Austria where she lived in a convent. She returned to England in 1927 and divided her time between London and Oxford, writing about her experiences and collecting books, including many on her Catholic faith. During the 1930s she appears to have suffered some form of mental crisis. This situation was exacerbated when she suffered a head injury during the bombing of London in the Second World War.

In 1948 she was found to be unable to look after herself, and was committed to Napsbury psychiatric hospital for the remainder of her life as a result. It was here that she received the accolade of the Order of the Crown of Thorns. Several letters from her survive in our archives and they are tragic in tone, with Princess Françoise making it clear that she was being held in Napsbury against her will, and denied access to her books and archives.

BBC Radio 4 broadcast a programme about her in 2010 and in the same year a film was made of her life. Several biographies of her have been published.

Prince Robert Philippe Louis Eugène Ferdinand of Orléans, Duke of Chartres (November 9, 1840, Paris – December 5, 1910, Saint Firmin) was the son of Prince Ferdinand Philippe, Duke of Orléans and thus grandson of King Louis-Philippe of France. He fought for the Union in the American Civil War, and then for France in the 1870 Franco-Prussian War. In 1863 he married his cousin Princess Françoise of Orléans in Kingston upon Thames – she was the daughter of François, Prince of Joinville. In 1886 he was exiled from France.

Born in 1840, the duke was very soon orphaned – his father died in a cabriolet accident in 1842, and his mother died in 1858. Thus, during their childhood and adolescence, he and his elder brother were mainly looked after by their grandparents, King Louis-Philippe and Queen Marie-Amélie of the Bourbon-Siciles

Whiteley attempted[when?] to self-publish a textbook, The Fairyland Around Us, which was developed from her popular talks on the natural world. Unfortunately, she ran out of money for Fairyland and was only able to send a limited number of copies to subscribers. She then went in search of a commercial publisher, without success. However, in a meeting with Ellery Sedgwick, publisher of the Atlantic Monthly, she arranged to publish her childhood diary instead, which, if authentic, would have been written c. 1903-4.[1]

According to Sedgwick in the foreword to the published diary, Whiteley brought in Fairyland, and when asked about her background, her detailed memory led Sedgwick to ask if she had kept a diary. When she replied that she had, but it was torn to pieces, Sedgwick requested that she reassemble it. However, one of Whiteley’s biographers uncovered a letter from Whiteley to Sedgwick in which she requests an appointment with him and describes having kept accounts of her observations of the natural world from a very early age.[2] If true, Sedgwick may have partially invented the tale of how Whiteley’s diary came to his attention. Sedgwick claimed that Everett Baker, an attorney and head of the Christian Endeavour organization in Oregon, wrote a letter to him that said that on two occasions Whiteley’s mother admitted to him and his wife that Whiteley was adopted.[5]

 

 

 

 

In her later years Opal worked as a writer for several magazines. She even traveled to India as a Maharajah’s guest! However, in 1948 she was found nearly starving in her London apartment. She was surrounded by thousands of books on every subject – especially European history. Since childhood Opal had always spent her money on books rather than food. Then, something tragic happened …Opal was committed to Napsbury Mental Hospital in England. She died there in 1992 at the age of 95. The gifted child genius from Oregon’s wilderness spent nearly fifty years buried in a tiny cell on a crowded asylum ward. In the 1950’s she was given a lobotomy. Opal never wrote another book. Her brilliant mind rotted away like the tree stumps her logger father had cut down so long ago. Only 10 people attended Opal’s funeral. No memorial was held in Oregon.Opal Whiteley’s fate is one of the saddest – but also heroic in literature. She was a victim of abuse, mental illness, and society’s attempts to “cure” her. For half a century the asylum tried to make her give up her ideas and use the name of Whiteley. She did not. In fact, after about 25 years the hospital gave up and began to call her the “Princess”. Opal finally became what she believed she was – a Princess – even if imprisoned. Her life could be so much better today! Science has learned much about the brain in the past 50 years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Orl%C3%A9ans

Orléans is the name used by several branches of the Royal House of France, all descended in the legitimate male line from the dynasty‘s founder, Hugh Capet. It became a tradition during France’s ancien régime for the duchy of Orléans to be granted as an appanage to a younger (usually the second surviving) son of the king. While each of the Orléans branches thus descended from a junior prince, they were always among the king’s nearest relations in the male line, sometimes aspiring and sometimes succeeding to the throne itself.

The last cadet branch to hold the ducal title descended from Henri de Bourbon, duc de Vendôme (Henry IV of France), who became king (nominally) in 1589, and is sometimes known as the “House of Bourbon-Orléans” (Maison de Bourbon-Orléans). From 1709 until the French Revolution the Orléans dukes were next in the order of succession to the French throne after members of the seniormost branch of the House of Bourbon, descended from Louis XIV. Louis XIII‘s younger brother and younger son were granted the dukedom successively in 1626 and 1660, and since they had contemporaneous living descendants, there were actually two Bourbon-Orléans branches at court during the reign of Louis XIV.

“The Captain” is commanding an outpost responsible for squashing the few remaining Anarchist rebels living in the mountains who are under the impression that the Spanish Civil War is still being fought. As far as lost causes go, few were as lost as the Anarchist cause during the Spanish Civil War: the war was largely over by 1939 and Franco would rule over a Fascist Spain until his death in 1975, upon which the Bourbon monarchy was restored.

In one scene between mother and daughter, at Carmen’s request, Ofelia tells her brother-to-be a fairy tale – setting out for him the new ideal of Spain. The brother is the coming Monarchy of Juan Carlos, made by Franco with the agreement of the Church. In her story, Ofelia tells her brother to enter the world of occult and look for a mysterious rose at the top of a dark mountain covered with thorns.

Ofelia must bring him the newborn Monarchy to be sacrificed on the altar of the occult so that Spain can fully return to Paganism and the kingdom of darkness. But Spain protects her half-brother, the new regime, and is forced to return the infant to the hands of a wounded and drugged Francoism, who has pursued Ofelia into the labyrinth.

“Rosamond recalls that Jack Cory and his sister Fanny Y. Cory, cartoonist, started him on his writing career.”

In looking for traces of my Muse, Rena Easton, in Montana, I found what can be described as the Rosamond Holy Grail in Helena Montana. My grandfather lived in Helena and says he was inspired to write by Jack Cory, a political cartoonist and equestrian artist, and his sister Fanny Y. Cory, a famous illustrator who lived in a secluded ranch in Montana.

There was an art show of four generations of this family. This is the vision I had for my family when I became a Pre-Raphaelite. Christine Rosamond Benton did several Fairy paintings, as did Drew, who is employed rendering avatars for fantasy games.

Alas we have a true genealogy that traces the Rosamond Family Muse from the Cory family, to my grandfather, to me, to my sister, and to her daughter Drew Benton whose father was the famous muralist, Garth Benton, the cousin of the artist, Thomas Hart Benton. This is the convergence of three creative families – that is unheard of! The Great Muses are at work here. Consider our DNA!

If I had not been following my Muse wherever she leads me, then I would not have made this profound discovery that cast out the outsider from Rosamond Creative Legacy, those parasites who dare title themselves “caretakers” of Rosamond’s art and life story. If my grandfather came back from the dead, he would take a bullwhip to these usurpers – of his history! Fanny was a very famous woman artist – before Christine was born!

Thank you my dear grandfather, whom I never met, for laying down the true stepping stones of our

family history.

Royal wrote a short story about a bullfight in Montana where his sister lived. It appears their father adopted these sibling out to W.S. Spaulding after his wife died.

The top two images were done by Drew Benton. The boy with dragon was done by Drew’s mother, Christine Rosamond Benton. The connections I just made – with no ones help – increase the value of all my families creative efforts. This is what real Art Books look like!

I’ve considered doing illustrations for most of my books. C’mon Rena. Show yourself. Do it for Montana! You were Rosamond’s Muse. This is your State History. You got some major bragging rights! Put this in your resame. At least send me copies of photos of you that I can work from to illustrate
‘Capturing Beauty’. I want your side of the story! I will got to the Governor and have you declared Montana’s State Treasure who brought the history of Royal Rosamond and Fanny Cory, together!

The Guardian Knights of Art Pilgrims

ISIS is destroying the art of the world, along with religious relics and manuscripts. They have blown up mosques and murdered cartoonists. They murdered museum goers in Tunisia. They need to be stopped!

For  a week now I have been debating whether or not to found a new order of the Knights Templar to protect the Art of the World, that is the Rose of  World. If I do this, then ISIS might target these Guardian Knights of Art and turn museums into battlefields. In the word museum is found the word Muse. ISIS makes war on women. They began this war on the internet where I suggested a new Reformed Judaism make a home. Instead, our resources are being wasted on promoting the destructive heresy of the End Time Crazies who have formed a un-healthy bond with the Insane Jewish Zionist  to wage  holy war against the Democratic Party, and poor people.  Why poor people?

Pope Francis declared a Jubilee on March 20th. This is the true empowerment of the Poor People of the World as established by the real Jesus.

The cost of protecting the Art of the World with established police forces, and more hired security police, is going to be enormous. I am going to create a World Fund for the Protection of the Arts and Art Patrons, many whom are on a Pilgrimage to see much of the world’s art in their life time. The Templars were founded to protect pilgrims in the Holy Land. Alongside secular art, is religious art. The Muse of Democracy is our Guardian, our Guiding Light. Never allow her Torch of Inspiration to be put out. May her Knights vanquish the darkness that is spreading all over the world. Preserve our Creative Sanctuaries.

Tunisia’s national museum was forced to delay its planned reopening on Tuesday over lingering security concerns after last week’s jihadist attack on foreign tourists that left 21 dead.

Hundreds gathered outside the National Bardo Museum in central Tunis to condemn the attack, many carrying placards encouraging foreigners to visit Tunisia, which is heavily reliant on tourism income.

“We have been surprised at the last minute, but the interior ministry says that for security reasons we cannot receive a large number of visitors,” the museum’s head of communications Hanene Srarfi told AFP.

An officer in charge of security at the Bardo was arrested and jailed, although no official explanation was given.

Several events were planned Tuesday to protest last week’s attack, with hundreds attending a demonstration outside the museum.

Some protesters held signs in English reading “Visit Tunisia”, while others carried banners that said “I will receive you with jasmine”.

A handful of tourists arrived at the Bardo unaware that its reopening had been put back.

“We were not told. We came here to visit the museum,” French tourist Eliane Cotton told AFP.

With feeble growth and a graduate unemployment rate of 30 percent, there are fears last week’s attack could impact Tunisia’s shaky economy by discouraging visitors.

An AFP reporter outside the museum said police had begun erecting additional barriers around its entrance.

Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni was due to attend the afternoon ceremony, paying his respects to the four Italian tourists who died in the massacre.

President Beji Caid Essebsi said over the weekend that Tunisia was hunting a third suspect in the shooting, after two gunmen shot dead at the scene were revealed to have received training at militant camps in neighbouring Libya.

Authorities say as many as 3,000 Tunisians have gone to Iraq, Syria and Libya to join jihadist ranks, raising fears of returning battle-hardened militants plotting attacks.

“They return hardened, better-trained and capable of operations such as this,” Essid said. “This is a serious problem.”

After the First Crusade recaptured Jerusalem in 1099, many Christians made pilgrimages to various Holy Places in the Holy Land. However, though the city of Jerusalem was under relatively secure control, the rest of Outremer was not. Bandits and marauding highwaymen preyed upon pilgrims who were routinely slaughtered, sometimes by the hundreds, as they attempted to make the journey from the coastline at Jaffa into the interior of the Holy Land.[10]

In 1119, the French knight Hugues de Payens approached King Baldwin II of Jerusalem and Warmund, Patriarch of Jerusalem and proposed creating a monastic order for the protection of these pilgrims. King Baldwin and Patriarch Warmund agreed to the request, probably at the Council of Nablus in January 1120, and the king granted the Templars a headquarters in a wing of the royal palace on the Temple Mount in the captured Al-Aqsa Mosque.[11] The Temple Mount had a mystique because it was above what was believed to be the ruins of the Temple of Solomon.[5][12] The Crusaders therefore referred to the Al Aqsa Mosque as Solomon’s Temple, and it was from this location that the new Order took the name of Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or “Templar” knights. The Order, with about nine knights including Godfrey de Saint-Omer and André de Montbard, had few financial resources and relied on donations to survive. Their emblem was of two knights riding on a single horse, emphasising the Order’s poverty

The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Salomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of Solomon’s Temple

Jews Land and House of Orange

Originally posted on rosamondpress:

Yesterday I noticed that the Mendes da Costa family are kin to the de Rover (Roover) family who married into the Rosemont family, and were members of the Swan Brethren of which William of Orange belonged. William was made a loan by the famous banking family of Suossa in order to launch his invasion of England in what is called ‘The Glorious Revolution’ that evangelicals claim has come to America, and one day will establish a theocratic state vs. a democracy.

For months I have been asking folks; “Did Jesus establish a democracy?” I got no answer! It looks like Jesus’ kindred helped found – THIS DEMOCRACY – along with my kinfolk! Evangelicals want it both ways! They want to rule a earthly and heavenly kingdom, but, can’t produce Divine Permission – or a Deed of Trust – like I can! One need only look at County Records to see…

The red state whites have lost the moral high ground, again, and are employing men of wealth to create a have, and have not Mason Dixon line. However, with the popular vote being swayed by minorities, the plan to destroy the Federal Government and Social Safety Net, has hit a reef.

Offshore banking must end. Consider Romney’s yacht being registered in a British territory.

Upon his return, Bulloch discovered that the Florida was on the river, and ready to sail. She was a 700-ton steamer, bark rigged with three masts, four gun ports and two smokestacks. Her rigging was increased to improve her sailing qualities, and, her hull extended to carry extra coal and supplies (n his correspondence with Mallory, Bulloch referred to her as “O”). The Union spies in Liverpool were giving regular updates to Thomas…

Grave Of Rebecca de Mendes

Jon Presco

Row 8, plot 85. With the coordinates in hand, it should be simple to find the grave of Rebecca de Mendes Benjamin. But the sun has set over the Dispersed of Judah cemetery, the moon is reduced to a crescent, and an ominous chill has settled in over otherwise warm-blooded New Orleans.

Ethan points a meager flashlight borrowed from the bed and breakfast to the ground and miraculously finds a marker for row 9. We move to the right, closer to cemetery wall, shining a small halo on the path, hoping to find row 8. No such luck. But wait! There’s row 10: The rows are numbered north to south, not east to west. We scramble off in the likely direction of row 8.

I had come here earlier in the…

The New Promised Land

Royal Rosamond Press:

You may never recieve a more inporant e-mail, or letter, then this one. This is
historic and Biblical. Two hours a gentleman called me from South Carilona. He
was looking at the genealogy of his ancient family on my Rougeknight blog. He
told me I am a real scholar, that appears to know more about his family then he
does. His name is Samuel de Mattos. He descends from Sephardic Jews who are kin
to King David. His ancestor, Francis Salvadore found in the Revolutionary War,
and founded Reform Judaism where the return to Zion is abandoned. Francis
declared South Carolina the “land of milk and honey” that God has led His Chosen
People to. His kin taught Vincent Van Gough.

Rosemary was furious, and called me by my middle name, Gregory, that got shortened to Greg. I told my new brothers and sister in sobriety;

“My two alcoholic parents fought all the time – over everything – including my name. My father would call me John just to irk my mother.”

A year later I read all of Luke one night, and was in the light. I merged from my trailer parked by the McKenzie River to behold stars and a crescent moon gathered in a pine tree. A year later, my landlady did my astrology. Her five hour recording begins, thus;
