Putin=Gog, Crimea=Magog, the apocalypse is here and the Messiah is coming - Chemi Shalev - Not only Christian fans of Armageddon are buzzing: According to one rabbi, the Vilna Gaon himself predicted that when the Russians take Crimea, the steps of the Messiah will be heard. The Allard Pierson archeological museum in Amsterdam is in a bind. Since February 7, it has exhibited "The Crimea, Gold and secrets from the Black Sea," which it originally billed as "Spectacular archeological finds from the Ukraine." Now it doesn't know whether to return the precious gold artifacts to Russia or to Ukraine or to just stay out of it and hold on to the exhibition for the time being. The reason this report caught my eye is that most of the "Gold and secrets" of Crimea come from the Scythians. Originally from what is today southern Iran, the Scythians were a horse riding tribe that inhabited much of today's Georgia, Armenia and the southern parts of Ukraine and Russia for close to 1300 years, from the 7th century BC to the ...
to in looks to over by saying is ' Share 292 Email Ian Traynor, Europe editor The Guardian, Tuesday 3 June 2014 17.22 BST Link to Barack Obama reaffirms US commitment to eastern Europe Barack Obama has pledged a billion-dollar military programme of reinforcements in Europe to assuage east European alarm at the Kremlin's expansionist ambitions following the Ukraine crisis. Arriving in Warsaw to mark 25 years since the first semi-free elections in the communist bloc produced eastern Europe's first non-communist prime minister, the US president pronounced the security of Poland and the three Baltic States, all Nato and EU members, sacrosanct. Kicking off a week of intensive diplomacy in Europe focused on western responses to Vladimir Putin and Ukraine, Obama announced that he was seeking congressional backing for a billion-dollar fund to rotate more US troops in and out of Poland, to strengthen air patrols over the Baltic, and to beef up naval operations in the Black Sea off the Russian and Ukrainian coast . ...
Russia questions NATO military buildup near border: “Our concern is caused by an increase of US Air Force and the American military personnel in the Baltic, Poland, and also the Alliance's ships in the Black Sea,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement, quoting General Valery Gerasimov. NATO wargames in Eastern Europe are also “not helping” to normalize the situation, Russia's defense minister Sergey Shoigu said earlier. The first waves of US soldiers have already arrived in Poland and Latvia, after Tuesday announcement that the Pentagon is sending about 600 soldiers to Poland and the three Baltic States for infantry exercises. “If there's a message to Moscow, it is the same exact message that we take our obligations very, very seriously on the continent of Europe,” Defense Department spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said at the time. Also this week, the US frigate USS Taylor entered the Black Sea, with this NATO vessel – the French frigate Dupleix – reportedly scheduled to enter the Bl ...
Marie and I just got home from a wonderful trip to Eastern Europe. We visited Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Hungary! It was a cruise along the Danube River from the Black Sea to Budapest. We me a lot of great people, saw a lot of interesting places and I saw a lot of birds, a few lizards and snakes.
We have decided to spend one last summer cruising on Dora Mac and what a cruise we have planned. We will depart the UK for Vlissingen, Netherlands on May 3rd. We will then remove our mast and fabricate a cradle for it and our paravane poles. This will allow us to transit the rivers and canals through Eastern Europe to the Black Sea. With the mast and paravane poles lowered, our air draft is just 4.6 meters or about 15 feet. The lowest bridge on the trip will be 6.8 meters or about 22 feet at Novi Sad, Serbia. Our passage will include the Rhine River, Main River, canals over the mountains, Danube, River, to the Black Sea. We will transit more than 60 locks. Dora Mac will reach an altitude of over 1,300 feet. From there we will go through the Bosphorus Strait to the Sea of Marmara, the Dardanelles Strait to the Aegean Sea, and onto the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. We will arrive back in Turkey by September where we will have the boat hauled for a bottom job and other maintenance. The passage from the North Se ...
Ukraine crisis: NATO suspends cooperation with Moscow By Laura Smith-Spark and Susannah Palk, CNN April 1, 2014 -- Updated 2357 GMT (0757 HKT) Brussels, Belgium (CNN) -- NATO will suspend "all practical civilian and military cooperation" with Russia because of its annexation of Crimea, saying it has seen no sign that Moscow was withdrawing troops from the Ukrainian border. Foreign ministers from the 28 members of the Western military alliance met in Brussels on Tuesday for the first time since Russia grabbed the Black Sea peninsula from Ukraine last month, triggering the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War. They were discussing ways to boost NATO's military presence in formerly communist central and Eastern Europe to reassure allies worried by Russia's moves. After the session, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Russia has challenged truths that only a few weeks ago seemed self-evident: that European borders in the 21st century would not be redrawn by force. "It is important for everybody in th ...
U.S.A. no longer Bleeds for Freedom Obama bringing world to brink of World War III “Obama overthrew the Ukrainian government in order to be able to stuff the country into NATO, throw Russia out of its Black Sea naval base, and put US missile bases in Ukraine on Russia’s border,” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts wrote in a column for Press TV on Saturday. “Obama is angry that his plan didn’t pan out as intended, and he is taking his anger and frustration out on Russia,” he added. The analyst pointed that Obama’s demand for more NATO troops to be stationed in Eastern Europe and the buildup of military forces on Russia’s borders to allegedly protect Poland and the Baltic States is yet another provocation by Washington that could trigger a war with Moscow. “Obama doesn’t say what effect the US/NATO military buildup and numerous war games on Russia’s border will have on Russia. Will the Russian government conclude that Russia is about to be attacked and strike first? The reckless carelessness of Ob ...
March 28 marks the 160th anniversary of the outbreak of the Crimean War - one of the most important conflicts in the XIX century, defined for decades geopolitical relations on the continent. During the last month the international attention is focused on the Crimean peninsula in the northern Black Sea. Its annexation by Russia in Ukraine after the riots that led to the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych, was read by most politicians and analysts as a gross violation of international law. While the conflict is usually seen as a colossal clash between East and West, the role and importance of the peninsula itself often overlooked. Crimea is one of the key strategic points in Eastern Europe and is often passed from one hand to other . foundations of the conflict are still made in Vienna system of international relations to be established in Europe after the Napoleonic wars. The reason for this is that the Vienna system is based on a delicate balance of forces that includes powerful Ottoman Empire that ...
US to *** military option in Ukraine The US has raised the possibility of military intervention in the Ukraine crisis even as diplomatic efforts to resolve the standoff between Russia and the West showed some shaky signs of progress. General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Russia’s interference in Ukraine “exposes Eastern Europe to some significant risk” and the US “wound respond” if its allies are threatened. In an interview with PBS, Gen. Dempsey did not rule out the possibility of US military intervening in the Ukraine crisis. “That's a question that I think deserves to be assessed and reassessed and refreshed as this thing evolves.” The Pentagon has sent a missile warship to the Black Sea and additional fighter jets to Poland and Lithuania to “reassure” its allies in Europe. “Remember, we do have treaty obligations with our NATO allies. And I have assured them that if that treaty obligation is triggered, we would respond,” the US military chief sa ...
Here is what I posted and face book is not letting you see , I am cutting and pasted this , its from a US citizen friend of mine living in Russia. I've traveled extensively in Crimea and Ukraine, so here are some facts which might not be publicized too much in the US- 1. Crimea was officially part of Russia until 1954, when the USSR changed it's administrative center to Ukraine for logistical reasons. Russians fought many epic battles in Crimea in history, and got it the hard way. It's theirs. It was an accident of history that when the USSR collapsed, Crimea ended up part of Ukraine. 2. The people who live in Crimea are mostly Russians. They speak Russian, and don't think of themselves as Ukrainian. The other major population there are Tatars. Hardly any "Ukrainians" live there. 3. Russia has major naval bases in Crimea, its entire Black Sea fleet is there. It is how they protect their southern border. They cannot afford to "wait and see" what the new Ukrainian government thinks about it. and here are a ...
Lots of talk by Russian apologists about the Russian 'historical' links in the Crimea (Ukraine): So what is the history of the Crimea, has it always been, Russian, or did the Russians attack, pillage and murder the indigenous people off the land, having a history that they and their apologists should be ashamed of mentioning. THE CRIMEA: The Crimean Tatars emerged as a nation at the time of the Crimean Khanate. The Crimean Khanate was a Turkic-speaking Muslim state which was among the strongest powers in Eastern Europe until the beginning of the 18th century. The nobles and rulers of the Crimean Tatars were the progeny of Hacı I Girai a Jochid descendant of Genghis Khan, and thus of Batu Khan of the Golden Horde. The Crimean Tatars mostly adopted Islam in the 14th century and thereafter Crimea became one of the centers of Islamic civilization. This was signified by Ozbeg Khan erecting the first mosque and medrese in Eski Qırım in 1314.[20] According to Baron Iosif Igelström, in 1783 there were close t ...
An area of South-Eastern Europe (North of Greece and west of Black Sea) is called?. a. Scandinavia. b. Balkans. c. Middle East. d. Baltic
Ukrayina, [ukrɑˈjinɑ]) is a country in Eastern Europe. Ukraine borders the Russian Federation to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, Romania and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively. It has an area of 603,628 km2 (233,062 sq mi), making it the largest country entirely within Europe. The territory of Ukraine was first inhabited at least forty-four thousand years ago. It is a candidate site for both the domestication of the horse and for the origins of the Indo-European language family. In the Middle Ages, the area was a key center of East Slavic culture, before being divided between a variety of powers. A Cossack republic flowered for a century in the early modern period, but Ukraine remained otherwise divided until its consolidation into a Soviet republic in the twentieth century, becoming independent in 1991. Ukraine has long been a world breadbasket due to its fertile conditions. T ...
“On this day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Premier Joseph Stalin meet at Yalta, in the Crimea, to discuss and plan the postwar world—namely, to address the redistribution of power and influence. It is at Yalta that many place the birth of the Cold War. It had already been determined that a defeated Germany would be sliced up into zones occupied by the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union, the principal Allied powers. Once in Germany, the Allies would see to the deconstruction of the German military and the prosecution of war criminals. A special commission would also determine war reparations. But the most significant issue, the one that marked the conference in history, was Joseph Stalin's designs on Eastern Europe. (Stalin's demands had started early with his desire that the location of the conference be at a Black Sea resort close to the USSR. He claimed he was too ill to travel far.) Roosevelt and Churchill attempted to create a unite ...

Iranian people (Aryan, Iranic) he Sarmatians emerged in the 7th century BC in a region of the steppe to the east of the Don River and south of the Ural Mountains in Eastern Europe. For centuries they lived in relatively peaceful co-existence with their western neighbors the Scythians. Then, in the 3rd century BC, they spilled over the Don to attack the Scythians on the Pontic steppe to the north of the Black Sea. The Sarmatians were to dominate these territories over the next five centuries. They ranged from the Vistula River in Poland to the Danube.
Romania lies between the Balkans and Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Ukraine and Moldova in the north, Hungary and Serbia to the west, Bulgaria to the south, and in the east, with the Black Sea. In 2002, the oldest remains of modern humans *** sapiens) in Europe were found in the "Cave With Bones" (Peştera cu Oase), near Anina, in present Romania. One of the finds, (a lower jaw), is about 42,000 years old, and has been called "John of Anina". As Europe's oldest remains of *** sapiens, they may represent the first humans who inhabited the continent. The remains are especially interesting, since they exhibit a mixture of archaic, early modern human, and Neanderthal traits. Romania joined the EU on the 1st of January 2007.

Georgia is a sovereign state in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. The capital of Georgia is Tbilisi. Georgia covers a territory of 69,700 km², and its population is almost 4.7 million.

A unified Georgia reached the peak of its political and economic strength during the reign of King David IV and Queen Tamar in the 11th–12th centuries. At the beginning of the 19th century, Georgia was annexed by the Russian Empire.After a brief period of independence following the Russian Revolution of 1917, Georgia was occupied by Soviet Russ ...
The Israeli Jews consists of two groups (Ashkenazi and Sephardim), ten to twenty percent are known as Sephardim or Eastern Jew, the remaining eighty to ninety percent are known as Ashkenazi or European Jew. The Ashkenazi Jew comes from Eastern European countries, the Sephardim comes from "Mideast countries". Let history show us who the KHAZARS and Sephardim were and are: In the year 450 A.D. one of Europe's barbaric tribes was beginning to show signs of restlessness. This tribe was called the KHAZARS (Chazars). Within the next two hundred years, the KHAZARS would form Eastern Europe's largest and most powerful kingdom. They would rule supreme for about 200 years, ranking in power with the Muslim Caliphate and the Byzantine Empire. Their kingdom, of approximately one million square miles, bordered the Aral sea on the east; Kiev and the Ukrainian Steppes on the west: the Caucasus mountain and the Black Sea on the south: and the Ural mountain on the north. Khazaria represented a very important period in Euro ...

Marine rotation finishes tour in Eastern Europe, resets for next year Story by Staff Sgt. Nate Hauser NEW ORLEANS – “How many Marines do you know that have been to Transylvania?” asked Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Lassandrello, an instructor with noncommissioned officer development detachment, Black Sea Rotational Force 12. This rhetorical question may very well summarize the unique deployment the Gunnery Sgt. and the members of his unit embarked on through 19 countries and 17 exercises. The 350 Marines and sailors of BSRF 12 returned home Aug. 22, following a deployment that took them from the snow-capped mountains of Georgia to the picturesque Black Sea port of Constanta, Romania. “Our Marines are living the ‘any clime, any place mantra’ of the Marine Corps,” said Lt. Col. Richard Coates, Commanding Officer, BSRF 12. The Marines and sailors of BSRF 12 were an amalgamation of assets pulled from over 30 different units from California to New York with the command and ground combat elements originatin ...
See also: Geography of Asia Western Asia is located directly south of Eastern Europe. The region is surrounded by seven major seas; the Aegean Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea. To the north, the region is delimited from Europe by the Caucasus Mountains, to the southwest, it is delimited from Africa by the Isthmus of Suez, while to the east, the region adjoins Central Asia and South Asia. The Dasht-e Kavir and Dasht-e Lut deserts in eastern Iran somewhat naturally delimit the region from Asia itself.

I earmarked a little money from my savings and bought the first new coin for my collection in at least a year. Nice little silver drachm from about 400 BC, struck by the city fathers of a Greek colony known as Apollonia Pontica, on the easter shores of the Black Sea. Now it's Bulgaria... Few people appreciate how the Greek world was virtually wiped from the planet. Although the culture was so influential at one time that its effect is still felt, in the 19th. century a civilization that had spanned from the gateway to India to the pillers of Hercules had been overrun everywhere by later invaders (such as Bulgarian Slaves), most recently the Turks. All that was left was the homeland of southern Greece itself, and half of Cyprus, both of which were firmly in the grip of the Turkish empire. Had the Ottomans been a little more aggressive or simply luckier, and overrun more of eastern Europe than they were able, perhaps Greece and the Balkans would just be another part of the Islamic Middle East. This is what ...
