t Posted by Hello The Cyprus experience ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello to All

Well I suppose that all good things must start somewhere and for me that somewhere is HERE. In the next few pages I will set out to try and link you with all the good things on the internet. Please excuse me however if on occasions I wonder off into my "Angry Young Man" mode (Did I say Young)? Well if so then it is just a touch of hope or desperation that you will have to excuse me for. I have been collecting interesting sites now for some time and with the help of BLOGGER I have crated a number of Web sites to hold them. Please click on ANY of the links to the right to be taken to that particular subject.

A Prayer chain for our military... Don't break it!

The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.
'Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you ?
Have you always turned the other cheek ?
To My Church have you been true?'
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
'Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell.'

Don't Break This - Without Apology

Thinking of all the British Soldiers
I'm not breaking this one. If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times! Let us pray

A Prayer chain for our military... Don't break it!
Send this on after a short prayer for our soldiers - Please Don't break it! 


It's the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It's the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It's the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom

Iconic ‘napalm girl’ photo from Vietnam War turns 40


The woman behind the haunting image tells her story

Kim Phuc, center, with her clothes torn off, flees with other South Vietnamese children after a misdirected American aerial napalm attack on June 8, 1972.
Read more: Many of my generation remember her in this photo. Now find out her story, it makes up for her suffering I am sure.

the oldest boat in the world still regularly sailed.



Built three years after Nelson died at Trafalgar and seven years before Napoleon met his Waterloo.


Boadicea is probably the oldest sailing vessel in Europe that is still in regular use. She was built in 1808 as an oyster smack and was worked commercially until 1938 when she passed into the hands of my grandfather Michael Frost, who worked the boat for pleasure until his death. Boadicea has passed through the family and is now in my care and still today she is worked under sail pulling a Trawl or oyster dredges in order to keep the old skills alive and it makes a great day out for the family seeing what kinds of fish and creatures are caught up in the nets. The pleasure of working a boat under sail at your own pace is second to none. During the spring and summer Boadicea can be found regularly racing against other Smacks and classic yachts and if there is a stiff breeze we can hold our own. During the autumn we still drift net for herring.

The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian
Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008.
It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of
Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.
Date: Tue. 15 January 2008 14:30
I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible
truth - Europe died in Auschwitz . We killed six million Jews and replaced
them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we bu rned a culture, thought,
creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because
they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art,
international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These
are the people we burned.
And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to
ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates
to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious
extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness
to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into
the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan
the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred,
creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their
talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to
life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed
by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe ..

The Jews are NOT promoting brain-washing children in military training
camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause the maximum number
of deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims. The Jews don't hijack planes, nor
kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.
There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a
single Jew who protests by killing people.
The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death
to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard
education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that
humankind respects them.
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the
Palestinians and Arab neighbours, even if you believe there is more
culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it
'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel .."
Benjamin Netanyahu
When the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower,
found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to
be taken and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered
through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because
somewhere down the road of history some bastard wil l get up and say that
this never happened.'
Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school
curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population, which claims it never
occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent
of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving
in to it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.
This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 6 million
Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests
who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and
humiliated' while the German people looked the other way.
Now more than ever, with Iran among others, claiming the Holocaust is 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people . Be a link in the
memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.
How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER
HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States ?
Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along.

Thanks to Daran for reminding us.

Save the Gurkha Campaign

Peter Carroll, the man behind Joanna Lumley’s successful high profile campaign for Gurkha rights has slammed rumoured cuts in the number of serving Gurkhas.

Reacting to rumours that several hundred Gurkhas may face compulsory redundancy, Peter Carroll (pictured here with Joanna Lumley), who lives in Folkestone, home town of the Gurkhas said, ‘These cuts are wrong for the individual Gurkhas, wrong for the Brigade of Gurkhas, wrong for the Army, wrong for the UK as a whole and wrong for the long standing bond between Britain and Nepal.  We are at war in Afghanistan, Argentina is sabre rattling over the Falklands and Iran is a hugely destabilising influence in one of the most important regions of the world. 

This is not a time to be cutting some of our finest soldiers’.

There has been much media comment saying that the Gurkhas vulnerability to cuts could be attributable to Joanna Lumley’s campaign.  Peter Carroll angrily rejects these claims.  Peter said, ‘Joanna and I fought a campaign to get Gurkha ‘old timers’ the right to live in the country that they were prepared to fight for and possibly die for.  We stand by that campaign absolutely.  That issue has no bearing on these current rumoured cuts.  The Army is claiming that because Gurkhas can now serve for longer, that there are too many.  The change of length of service was not due to our campaign.  However, whatever the reason that they now serve longer, it seems ridiculous to force highly skilled soldiers out of the Army. Gurkhas are incredibly loyal and more of them tend to serve their whole term than other parts of the Army.  What reward does our country give them for that loyalty and commitment? – it looks like they’re going to be thrown on the scrap heap!’

Peter Carroll is asking supporters to ask their friends, family and colleagues who care about the Gurkhas to sign the petition at Peter added, ‘If the cuts are as deep as rumoured, it could push the Brigade of Gurkhas past the point of being sustainable at all’.

Thank you for your support.

Open Letter From An American Airlines Pilot

This pilot hit the nail right on the head in his open letter. 
We do need to see positive actions from all Muslims living in our free countries


The paper stated that some Muslim doctor is saying we are profiling him because he has been checked three times while getting on an airplane. The following is a letter from a pilot.This well spoken man, who is a pilot with American Airlines, says what is in his heart, beautifully.... 

                          YOU WORRY ME!  
                        By Captain John Maniscalco, American Airlines Pilot
I've been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me.  I wish you didn't.  I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country.  But you don't blend in anymore.  I notice you, and it worries me.  

I notice you because I can't help it anymore. People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now.  I don't fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.  

On September 11, ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country.  They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings, killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children's mothers.  

The Palestinians celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world.  So, I notice you now. I don't want to be worried.  I don't want to be consumed by the same rage, hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists  But I need your help.  As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist. 

How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter these same good neighbors and children? 

The events of September 11th changed the answer.  It is not my responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults.  It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me. 

I want to know, I demand to know and I have a right to know, whether or not you love
America .  Do you pledge allegiance to its flag?  Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car?  Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation; that He will protect it and let it prosper?  Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your Jihads? Are you thankful for the freedom that this nation affords?  A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country?  Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice?  Do you love America ?  If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it. 

Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the
United States of America .  Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent, because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks, because I worry about what is unprovoked to you.  I am not interested in any more sympathy;  I am interested only in action.  What will you do for America - our great country - at this time of crisis, at this time of war? 

I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets.  I want to hear you chanting 'Allah Bless
America '.  I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.  

The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities.  You know them. 

You know where they are.  Hand them over to us, now!  But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action.  Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter.  You have disappeared from the streets.  You have posted armed security guards at your facilities.  You have threatened lawsuits.  You have screamed for protection from reprisals. 

The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating.  They seemed more concerned with making sure that the
United States proves who was responsible before taking action.  They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing 'leaders' like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.   

If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up.  What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good, pure, and true, when your 'leaders' are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance?  It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if huge numbers of the world's Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion.  A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again.  A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide.  A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world.  A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air.  A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth.  A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam. 

We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us -our rights under the greatest constitution in the world.  I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it.  A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family.  

I am pleading with you to let me know.  I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American. But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance, and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand. Until then,  “YOU WORRY  ME!”  

                               CANADIAN COMMENTS:
I totally agree with this sentiment.  I hope you will forget all about the 'political correctness' mandate we've had rammed down our throats, and see if this doesn't ring true in your heart and mind.  For Canada , with all the multiculturalism we've been told is so important....why should we not, as Canadians, expect that the millions of new people immigrating to our country will show their love for our country, their allegiance to our country, their willingness to obey the laws of our country, and acceptance that we are a Christian country?  Just because they are able to enjoy exercising their own religion, they should not expect us to be ashamed of ours. They knew Canada was a Christian country when they came here. Why are we erasing Christianity because immigrants who are unwilling to adopt our way of life expect us to?  There is just too much insanity in the world, and we have to start taking a stand. 

I hope you will forward this, so that others will feel they are not alone if they are starting to feel the same. 

                               BRITAIN’S COMMENTS:
At last a clear non racist example of the concerns that the vast majority of our Nation’s population probably share. The pilot’s letter encapsulates all that is fair and just about national pride and protection of one’s national culture. I fear it may be too late here in UK but we too want our country back in the form that attracted all these different cultures to come here in the first place!! In all our conversations with a wide range of friends and acquaintances we have not met one that disagrees with our own views. If only we all had the courage of our convictions to pass this on – it is a statement that should be accepted as the heart-felt feelings of someone with honest commendable national pride.
