Haratoka, who is of Circassian origin, said that migration and exile are issues about which she thinks often due to the terrible conditions her ancestors lived through in the Circassian Exile of 1864. "While similar events are still taking place in different geographies around the world today and Anatolian lands are still home to people who are separated from their homelands, I think not only artists but our whole country should think about the concepts of migration and exile," she added.
The expulsion of Circassians occurred during an ambitious campaign by the Russian Empire to extend its borders despite tough resistance by locals in the region, including Circassians, Abkhazians, Chechens and others. The period was also toward the end of the decline of the Ottoman Empire, whose clout had long since spread to the Caucasus. The resistance of the locals was brutally quashed through massacres of their populations and their subsequent exile. Most Circassians were herded onto ships to be transferred from the northeastern shores of the Black Sea to Anatolia. Thousands perished due to hunger and thirst, and many others died when their ships sank in the waves of the Black Sea.
PARIS (Reuters) - Street protests are not a good strategy for opposing Iran's government, an Iranian female boxer in exile said after climber Elnaz Rekabi - who caused controversy by competing in an international contest without a headscarf - returned home to cheering supporters.
In this lesson, the teacher has students compare the positive and negative aspects of exile by examining the claims of several different authors, including Bradbury, Said, and Lev. They begin with a whole group discussion about the positive and negative connotations of their new vocabulary, using pictorial cues, and then connect this analysis to the texts they are studying. Students then work in small groups where they specifically use academic vocabulary and direct text citations to support their synthesis of the texts, using a graphic organizer. The text in this lesson can often be found in libraries or at online bookstores.
In fact, history offers many examples where governments have continued to operate when displaced to other locations, within its country or in exile, or where a state continues its legal existence with the government gone or with parts or all of the country occupied. During World War II, London hosted seven governments in exile from occupied countries in continental Europe, with other governments taking refuge in countries such as Canada and Australia. After the war some of these governments were able to return to their home countries and resume operations there. The fact that most were already in place prior to the occupation enhanced their legitimacy and helped preserve their national interests as well as the preexisting governance approach and structure. Throughout the war, these governments served as a nucleus for external engagement and advocacy, just as Ukraine's legitimate political leadership could continue to facilitate political and diplomatic support from the West, even under an occupation scenario.
A clear line of succession and an operational government in exile may also be important for the period after the war, and help maintain the pre-war governance structures and legal mechanisms. Given long-standing Russian efforts to destabilize (PDF) the Ukrainian political system, a smooth and functional post-war transition and reconstruction could also defy this element of Russian strategy and serve to advance Ukrainian post-conflict resilience and independence. A continued politically legitimate (PDF) government could also help ensure the legitimacy and support for a potential future peace process.
Here is a summary of the history (in the first part): The Prophet Daniel (Chapters 2, 7 and 8) foretold of four world powers: Babylonia, Medo-Persia, Greece(including the Ptolemies and the Seleucids, Maccabees and Hasmoneans), and Rome. Last week we concluded with the Jewish return to Jerusalem under Cyrus the Persian. When the Old Testament draws to a close (apx. 400 B.C.), Judea had been province of Persia for 138 years. Although the exiles were allowed to return to Canaan in order to rebuild the Temple, only a small number of Jews actually returned. The exiled Jews had set down roots and were scattered over 128 provinces.
The purging of thousands of alleged plotters of a failed coup raised tensions Monday between Turkey and the West, with U.S. and European officials urging restraint, while Ankara insisted that Washington extradite an exile accused of orchestrating the plot.
The swift move against so many reflected the prior investigation, the government said. It alleged the coup conspirators were loyal to moderate cleric Fethullah Gulen, a former Erdogan ally who lives in exile in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, and espouses a philosophy that blends a mystical form of Islam with democracy.
