La Lunga notte della Jihad

Milano – Venerdì, ore 12,30 – Preghiera del mezzogiorno.

Sheikh Mohammad Abdallah Pino Frontolazzo: Allah Akbar!

Fedeli: Allah Akbar!

SMAPF: Bismillahi r-Rahmâni r-Rahim Al hamdu li-Llahi rab-bil ‘alamin. Ar-Rahmani r-Rahim. Maliki yaumi d-din. Iyyâka na’budu wa iyyâka nasta’in. Ihdina s-sirâta al-mustaqîm. Sirâta l-ladhina an’amta ‘alaihim, ghairil maghdubi ‘alaihim wa laddhhallin.

Fedeli: Sì! Quella roba lì! - (Che ha detto?) – (Ma che ne so, lo dice ogni volta, glielo abbiamo detto di farlo in italiano, ma lui niente) – (Io ho fatto due mesi di arabo, ho imparato solo le parolacce. Mi sono tornate utili a Sharm el Sheik, quando volevano vendermi i papiri egizi fatti in Cina).

SMAPF: Nel nome di Allah misericordioso, io voglio ricordarvi ancora una volta che in Siria, in Afghanistan, in Iraq i nostri fratelli di fede stanno soffrendo.

Fedeli: SÌ, è vero! - (pure qui non è che ce la passiamo meglio, però. Ieri mi hanno sequestrato due casse di Becks senza fattura. Eccheccazzo!)

SMAPF: È finito il Ramadan, abbiamo digiunato, pregato, festeggiato. Ora sarebbe il momento di partire.

Tra i fedeli: Io ho prenotato due settimane a Viserba, mia moglie ha tanto insistito.

SMAPF: أنا لا أتحدث الأعياد، وأنا أتكلم من الحرب المقدسة JIHAD!

Fedeli: (Ancora con ‘sto arabo! Che ha detto?) – (Parla di roba Santa) – (Ah, no. Io Santa Margherita non me la posso permettere. Ma che é, un viaggio organizzato dalla moschea?) – (Pare di sì).

SMAPF: Allora, fratello Ahmad Tonelli raccoglie le iscrizioni per le partenze. Sono 300 euro per il viaggio tutto compreso.

Tra i fedeli: (Mi sembra conveniente. Fatima sarà contenta) – Quanti giorni sono?

SMAPF: Quanti volete. Una volta partiti, solo Allah potrà decidere.

Tra i fedeli: Oh, allora io quasi quasi un tre settimane me li faccio. Tanto al lavoro ci hanno messo in aspettativa per tutto agosto. – Anche io! Anche io!

Un mese dopo – Iraq, nei pressi di Mosul.

Fedeli: Viaggio di merda, il mare non lo vedo, sparano botti tutto il giorno. Ok che costava solo 300 euro, ma mi sembra organizzato male. Sei sicuro che fosse davvero Santa Margherita?– Boh, vedo solo deserto, un sacco di gente esaltata, vestita male che ascolta musica di merda. – Ho capito, siamo in Salento! È la Notte della Taranta.

"

Invece di omofobi e razzisti, mi chiedevo, non si potrebbe chiamarli direttamente imbecilli?

È che sono per la sintesi.

Today in Boston the 87th anniversary of the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti was remembered. Sacco and Vanzetti were Italian immigrants and committed anarchists whose trial is regarded as one of the great miscarriages of justice in American history.
Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti - anarchist organisers murdered by the state
On August 23rd 1927, two Italian-born anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were judicially murdered by the State of Massachusetts in the USA, having been framed for two murders they didn’t commit.
Sacco and Vanzetti were committed anarchists who had been active in many workers’ struggles. In 1916, Sacco was arrested for taking part in a demonstration in solidarity with workers on strike in Minnesota. In the same year he took part in a strike in a factory in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It was here that he met Bartolomeo Vanzetti, who was one of the principal organisers of that strike. Like most anarchists, the two were also active in their opposition to the First World War.
Severe poverty in the post-war years meant that many workers were dissatisfied with the status quo. The authorities were terrified that workers might follow the example of the Russian Revolution, and were doing everything in their power to portray communism and anarchism as ‘un-American’, and to frighten workers way from ‘red’ propaganda.
In April 1920, anarchist Andrea Salsedo was arrested and detained for 8 weeks. On the morning of May 3rd, he ‘fell’ to his death from the 14th floor window of a New York Dept. of Justice building. Sacco and Vanzetti, along with other comrades, immediately called a public meeting in Boston to protest. While out building support for this meeting they were arrested on suspicion of “dangerous radical activities”. They soon found themselves charged with a payroll robbery which had taken place the previous April in which 2 security guards had been killed.
The case came to trial in June 1921, and lasted for seven weeks. The state’s case against the two was almost non-existent. Twelve of Vanzetti’s customers (he was working as a fish seller) testified that he was delivering fish to them at the time of the crime. An official of the Italian Consulate in Boston testified that Sacco had been seeing him about a passport at the time. Furthermore, somebody else confessed to the crime and said that neither Sacco nor Vanzetti had anything to do with it.
The judge in the case, Judge Webster Thayer, said of Vanzetti: “This man, although he may not have actually committed the crime attributed to him, is nevertheless morally culpable, because he is the enemy of our existing institutions.” The foreman of the jury, a retired policeman, said in response to a friend of his who ventured the opinion that Sacco and Vanzetti might be innocent “Damn them. They ought to hang anyway.” Having sentenced the two men to death, the judge boasted to a friend “Did you see what I did to those anarchist bastards the other day”
There was no doubt about the fact that Sacco and Vanzetti were on trial for their political beliefs and that the verdict when it came was a class verdict - the state was delivering a clear message to the US working class - steer well clear of anarchist thought or face the consequences.
Sacco and Vanzetti were to spend the next six years in prison as appeal after appeal was turned down. Finally, on August 23rd 1927, they were executed. News of the executions sent hundreds of thousands of protestors into the streets all across the world. The US embassy in Paris had to be surrounded by tanks to protect it from an angry crowd of protestors, a riot in London resulted in 40 injuries, the US Consulate in Geneva was surrounded by a 5,000 strong crowd, huge crowds wearing black armbands marched in Boston and New York.
Shortly before he was executed, Vanzetti said, “The last moment belongs to us - that agony is our triumph!” It is in remembering the moment of their deaths, and in continuing to fight for their vision of a new, fair society that we honour these men.

Todays event in Boston was organised by the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society (SVCS). They write
"For the last nine years, the SVCS has sought to bring public attention to the wrongful execution of the two Italian immigrant workers and radicals in 1927. We invoke their tragedy and our local history not just to remember Sacco and Vanzetti, but also to demonstrate how little has changed in the 87 years following their execution. Nationalist fear mongering and the repression of dissidents are as prevalent today as it was during the Red Scare in the early 20th century. The way in which immigrants workers are rounded up, detained and deported today under the pretext of a War on Terror, a War on Drugs or securing our borders, is eerily similar to the Palmer Raids targeting immigrants in the 1920s. And while the overwhelming majority of developed nations have abolished the death penalty, the retention of capital punishment in the United States puts the U.S. in the disgracefully bad company of countries notorious for their human rights abuses.

"Se l’onorevole Alessandro Di Battista ha la possibilità di entrare in contatto con i terroristi e vuole andare nelle zone sotto il loro controllo per intavolare con loro una discussione, sappia che il suo visto di ingresso in Iraq è pronto: può andare ad Erbil, raggiungere in qualche modo Mosul e convincere i terroristi a fermare il genocidio di cristiani e musulmani come sta avvenendo in questi giorni."

"Perché i cattolici sono contrari alla legge sull’omofobia e gridano alla censura? Avete visto le sentinelle in piedi? Eppure in Italia abbiamo leggi che vietano le bestemmie e il vilipendio alla religione. Vietare le espressioni di odio su base religiosa non è forse altrettanto liberticida che vietarle su base sessuale? No, loro vogliono essere liberi di dare del finocchio ad un omosessuale ma io non posso maledire un personaggio di fantasia. A proposito della parola “finocchio”, inteso come pianta, nella storia è sempre stata una spezia casereccia che costava pochissimo, al contrario di quelle orientali. In Toscana -per esempio- il finocchio si usa per aromatizzare il salame: la famosa finocchiona. Da questo nasce l’idea di usare questa parola per indicare un uomo che si pensa non valga niente: l’omosessuale, la negazione della mascolinità in una società maschilista.
I cattolici poi (sempre loro) nel medioevo, quando mettevano al rogo gli omosessuali, considerati come indemoniati, per attenuare il puzzo di carne bruciata che esalava dai roghi, pare buttassero nel fuoco delle piante di finocchio.
Ecco dunque quanto c’è da ridere della parola “finocchio”, e quanto c’è da difenderne l’utilizzo in un periodo storico in cui ragazzini in età scolare si suicidano perché discriminati. Non sono le battute e le prese in giro sui gay il problema? E allora qual è, di grazia, il problema se non quello culturale? Qual è il problema se non che nel 2014 ancora escono libri di barzellette sui gay? E non mi si parli di barzellette sui carabinieri e sui preti, perché omosessuali si nasce, preti o carabinieri no. Gli omosessuali sono discriminati, i preti e i carabinieri casomai discriminano gli altri. Sapete cosa vi dico? Che allora, se si pùo deridere un gay in nome della libera espressione, allora io bestemmio. Anzi, ora esco, mi piazzo davanti alla chiesa e faccio la sentinella del diocane."

"- “Comunque, mi sono informata. Ci sono ottimi sostituti della carne, del latte e delle uova. Tipo la soia, il latte di soia, il tofu, che è fatto di soia e il tempeh, di soia fermentata”.
- “C’è anche un ottimo sostituto della figa, si chiama culo, ma non ho mai pensato all’omosessualità come rimedio allo stress psicologico che mi provochi ogni volta che dici soia”."
Dieci frasi da non dire per abbordare in spiaggia

E fidatevi, io sono proprio incapace. Quindi, se volete avere una minima chance di riuscita, non fate come me, che negli anni ho costruito un infallibile decalogo del fallimento.

1) Ammazza che tette! Se ti mettessi a pecora sarei indeciso tra lo scoparti e il mungerti.

2) Hey, hai mai pensato di affittare le chiappe a spazi pubblicitari?

3) Il tuo culo è un’opera d’arte, come la Grande Muraglia. Per me si vede pure dalla Luna.

4) Stasera ti va di aiutarmi a combattere gli sprechi? Domani mi scadono i preservativi.

5) Anvedi che fisico. Mi giocherei le tue misure al lotto. Peccato i numeri arrivino solo fino a 90.

6) Sei mai uscita con uno con l’American Express Gold? Se per te fa lo stesso io ho la Fidaty Oro dell’Esselunga.

7) Ah, sei vegetariana? Ma la carne la puoi sempre succhiare, no?

8) Con tette come le tue eviterei di passare vicino al tipo dei meloni, potrebbe accusarti di furto.

9) Sento che mi sto già affezionando a te. Posso chiamarti Anna, come mia mamma?

10) Vorrei essere un pittore, un astronauta e un pescatore per poter dipingere il tuo volto tra le stelle. E poi darti tanto tanto pesce.

Didn’t Makhno have his own secret police though?

The Kontrrazvedka were basically spies and saboteurs against the white army, they would infiltrate white strongholds and bourgeois institutions and commit acts of terrorism against the rich.  They had no official authority over anyone.
