Refugiados, el drama no es a dónde van, es de dónde vienen

El episodio del Aquarius con seis centenares de desesperados rechazados por Italia simboliza el crecimiento de la xenofobia y la ausencia de una visión sobre el origen y las culpas occidentales por este drama.

Europa esta partida bajo el aluvión persistente del drama de los refugiados y un emergente xenófobo creciente, alimentada por la crisis económica iniciada a fines de la década pasada que fulminó las expectativas de las clases medias. Los países del norte critican a los del Mediterráneo por su supuesta debilidad para detener a los desesperados. Y los de la costa, por la baja solidaridad de sus socios. De modo que no se cumplen los controles y se multiplican las denuncias de que se deja pasar a la muchedumbre de migrantes hacia el norte o se los deja a su suerte porque son ese otro que no merece estar entre ellos.

 

Bruselas había planteado hace un par de años que se aumente, al menos, a 160.000 el número de refugiados que el Continente esté dispuesto a aceptar. Pero son pocos, es demasiado tarde y los gobiernos cada vez se cierran más. El caso del Aquarius, con seis centenares de personas que debió aceptar España tras el rechazo de Italia y los mohines iniciales de Francia, es un ejemplo modélico de este brete sin salida. El nuevo gobierno xenófobo italiano, que regula el neofascista vicepremier Matteo Salvini, cerró sus puertos y visibilizó este caso como un antecedente de dureza que fue celebrada al otro lado del Atlántico por Donald Trump, otro líder de la ignominia moderna contra el extranjero diferente y necesitado.

La propuesta de cuotas fijas para contener este aluvión es resistida por Alemania que ha venido planteando la opción de una asignación voluntaria, por cierto sin éxito y quizá sin esperarlo. El desconcierto europeo se monta sobre una ceguera nada ingenua respecto al origen y responsabilidades propias por lo que ocurre en los sitios que hace que estos desdichados deban huir.

Los refugiados son, en su mayoría, sirios que escapan de un país atrapado en una sangrienta guerra que ya lleva siete años y que ha dejado cientos de miles de muertos. Ese conflicto está armado por los intereses que disputan sobre el país árabe aliados de Occidente contra Irán y su socio ruso. También huyen de Libia, donde Europa y EE.UU. se felicitaron tras la caída en 2011 del dictador Muammar Khadafi pero desaparecieron a la hora de ayudar a ese pueblo a construir su futuro. La crisis económica explica que en el amontonamiento también haya oriundos de Balcanes, Kosovo y multitudes de africanos de fronteras aun más lejanas.

 

Como en Libia, la mayoría de las dictaduras derrocadas en el norte africano, desde Túnez hasta Egipto, travestida hoy con dudosos ropajes democráticos, fueron históricos aliados de Occidente. El canje era impunidad a cambio de custodiar en esas fronteras los intereses estratégicos de este lado del mundo. Cuando estallaron las rebeliones contra las tiranías por el alza brutal del costo de los alimentos a raíz de la crisis global de 2008, europeos y norteamericanos se involucraron pero solo para arrebatar las victorias inevitables a las milicias populares rebeladas contra el despotismo.

En ese escenario brutal se sumó el terrorismo del ISIS, un ejército mercenario a la carta, creado,y fondeado por los grandes capitales de la región para disputar a Irán el control de Siria y reducir su influencia. El daño colateral de esa lucha de intereses es esta gente que si se queda muere y si se va y sobrevive es convertida en una masa tóxica en aquellos sitios donde estira la mano buscando ayuda.

La única solución a este drama es un programa de ayuda que revierta los océanos sociales que alimentan fundamentalismos, terror y exilios en sus lugares de origen. Eso implica un compromiso de tamaño histórico.

Lo que la ceguera europea, y no solo la del Continente, quiere eludir es el hecho de que no es posible dar vuelta la cara a este fenómeno. De un modo o de otro, como la realidad demuestra, acaba perforando las fronteras

    • One issue with historian Flavius Josephus is that he suggests that the Royal Captain of the (Guard) can also be regarded as General Nebuzaradan. A confusion arises from Josephus' account of the captives mentioned in Jeremiah, as he claims that they were taken from Egypt instead of Babylon. Since Nebuchadnezzar was occupied in Rilah, he directed his generals to lay siege to Jerusalem. This could potentially account for the numerous dispatches that Nebuchadnezzar would have sent to the west, but the considerable distance to Borsippa still poses a challenge. As a result, the Babylonians managed to gain control of regions such as Aram (Syria), Ammon, and Moab. The only territories that remained were the coastal cities, where the Egyptians held sway. King Josiah decided to form an alliance with Babylon instead of being under Egyptian rule. So, that part of the territory was covered until King Josiah was defeated.  It's interesting how they started back then in 4129, but still end up with the same conclusion with Zedekiah's Defeat 3522 607 B.C. 3419 607 B.C. even though their AM is different.  
    • In the era of the Bible Students within the Watchtower, there were numerous beginnings. It is essential to bear in mind that each congregation functioned autonomously, granting the Elders the freedom to assert their own assertions and interpretations. Most people embraced the principles that Pastor Russell was trying to convey. You could argue that what you are experiencing now, they also experienced back then. The key difference is that unity was interpreted differently. Back then it had value where today there is none. To address your inquiry, while I cannot recall the exact details, it is believed to have been either 4129 or 4126. Some groups, however, adopted Ussher's 4004. It is worth mentioning that they have now discarded it and revised it to either 3954 or 3958, although I personally find little interest in this matter. I believe I encountered this information in the book titled "The Time is at Hand," though it may also be referenced in their convention report. Regardless, this is part of their compelling study series 3. Please take a moment to review and confirm the date. I am currently focused on Riblah. The Bible Students who firmly believe that Israel is the prophetic sign of Armageddon have made noteworthy adjustments to their chronology. They have included significant dates such as 1947/8 and 1967/8, as well as more recent dates. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that, according to their calculations, 2024 holds immense importance. The ongoing tension of Iran targeting Israel directly from its own territory amplifies the gravity of the situation. If their trajectory continues, the subsequent captivating event will occur in 2029, rather than as previously speculated, in 2034 by some.
    • Would it be too much to ask what was the bible students starting point of creation?
    • @JW Insider Your summary is irrelevant, as I do not make any assertions regarding BC/AD other than their usage by scholars and in history, as you yourself have also acknowledged on numerous occasions, thus rendering your point invalid and evasive. The Watchtower leverages external viewpoints, including secular evidence, to substantiate the accuracy of their chronological interpretations. There are numerous approaches to dating events. Personally, I explore various alternative methods that lead to the same conclusion as the Watchtower. However, the most captivating approach is to utilize secular chronology to arrive at the same outcome. By relying solely on secular chronology, the pattern still aligns, albeit with a distinct interpretation of the available data. Nevertheless, the ultimate result remains unchanged. This is why when you get upset, when you are proven wrong, you, Tom, and those with the authority to ban take action, because you like others cannot handle the truth. In this case, your infamous tablet VAT 4956 has become useless in this situation. I do agree with you on one thing: you are not an expert, just like COJ. However, I must admit that this foolish individual was not the first to debate the chronology with the Watchtower and abandon it based on personal beliefs. He simply happened to be the most recent one that's on record.
