Shimon Peres and the Mediterranean dream

The news about the death of Shimon Peres involve not just the memory of an eminent personality, but something more, which is intimately related with the Mediteranean destiny.

Thinking of Shimon Peres, the mind goes to the memory of an important season, at the end of XX century, when it was legitimate to hope for a general pacification of the Mediterranean.

Very young but yet very present, politically active since the early time of the founding of the modern state of Israel, Peres has been the custodian of the continuity of governments which leaded the Israeli policy. When it seemed to start a season lesser marked by security problems, when it really seemed that the Mediterranean could become  a “free trade area” (as it was said by the documents of that time, implying, if not institutional union like Europe, at least a trade integration area), at that time Peres had the lucidity to accommodate and support the choices of his colleague (and rival) Yitzhak Rabin.

The “Oslo Accords” of 1993 between Israel and the Palestinians, with the mediation of the United States, had enabled him to imagine a new dimension of balance and integration of the Mediterranean countries. Rabin had been the herald of this policy, with the indefatigable Peres support.

The death of Shimon Peres marks today the moment within the collective consciousness closes the eyes to a waking dream that has not become true, and yet it remains the polar star to follow for those who, secularly and rationalist, believes in a fairer world. Even more than so, for the few spiritualists who see the transcendental reason of Israel and understand its spiritual role.

For these reasons, with the memory of Peres, we deem it is important to recall the Rabin’s last speech Nov. 4, 1995 in Tel-Aviv. These are the words: “Permit me to say that I am deeply moved. I wish to thank each and every one of you, who have come here today to take a stand against violence and for peace. This government, which I am privileged to head , together with my friend Shimon Peres, decided to give peace a chance. That will solve most of Israel’s problems. I was a military man for 27 years. I fought so long as there was no chance for peace. I believe that there is now a chance for peace, a great chance. We must take advantage of it for the sake of those standing here, and for those who are not here-and they are many. I have always believed that the majority of the people want peace and are ready to take risks for peace. In coming here today, you demonstrate, together with many others who did not come, that the people truly desire peace and oppose violence. Violence erodes the basis of Israeli democracy. It must be condemned and isolated. This is not the way of the State of Israel. “

It is hard to say, but Yitzhak Rabin was not murdered by a Palestinian terrorist, or by some terrorist Islamic organizations: Yitzhak Rabin was killed with three shots fired gun by Yigal Amir, an Israeli extremist of  extreme right, with the shadow of the complicity of the secret services that, of course, it has never been ascertained.

Shimon Peres continued his brilliant career, coming to be elected President of Israel, June 13, 2007, holding the office until  July 24, 2014.

Today, on the day of his departure, friends and opponents greet him with equal respect. Opponents, not enemies. Shimon Peres was a man too intelligent to have enemies. We hope that our greeting may reach our Readers with the meaning of the hope that in these dark days for the Middle East, the North Star may shine with the light of the everlasting idea of Israel as “Light to the Nations”, bringing the torch of the civilization lighthouse to extend rights for the whole world.


14 Keys to the Holy Quran


Poetry can change our understanding. And sometime you have to recognize that something or someone that the whole world indicated as bad, wicked, and more, instead is a wise, a teacher. Like Nasreddin in the Tasawwuf’s Tradition. He seems to be a fool, but in fact is the only wise in a world of fools. Take for instance everything we listen about Islam in Western world: not a single word is true, everything is melted with prejudice, as each Muslim was a terrorist. Islam is a Faith of Love. Is the continuity with Moses and Jesus doctrine, as Mohammed (PBUH) is the Sigil of the Prophets. And for personal experience I can confirm that Muslim are good people that wants nothing else than living in peace and freedom. The same kind of prejudice is spread upon the doctrine of Thelema, that is presented as something intimately evil. But if you read inside, you will find that is beyond good and evil, because is a doctrine of deep Unity, a mystic vision of something that is beyond the cosmic dimension, going towards the the universal and infinite pure Light. This prejudice has been cultivated because this doctrine talks about our inner freedom and divinity, which are things the establishment’s power doesn’t tolerate. So this poet (a man with many mistakes, that can be considered as a poet and not as a prophet), he has been condemned to the oblivion. But the words he wrote are strong, and they survived. At last, this poet was also a Suphi initiated, being part of the Tariqa Aissawa, in Algeri.

The 14 Keys to the Holy Quran is a poem that aims to inquire the Holy Writings with the Suphi indication about the 14 Suras that begin with some enigmatic letters. What you will find inside… will meet your intelligence and your heart.

Intimate Music & Poetry – Eric Andersen

TH1TheCologneConcertQuando incontri la musica di Eric Andersen, la prima sensazione è… che la conosci già. È così carica di atmosfera che non puoi non lasciarti prendere dall’incantesimo. Chi l’ha ascoltata sa a cosa mi riferisco, a quel non poter non riconoscerne il carattere intimo e magico della sua poesia. “Non sono un uomo di potere, né ricco” dice l’Autore in uno dei brani del “The Cologne Concert“, e c’è tutta la tensione di una concezione della vita che resta indifferente agli schemi convenzionali del successo e dello star system. Forse, da qui si può capire perché Andersen, nonostante un eccellente repertorio, sia ancora abbastanza ignoto alla stampa musicale italiana, anche se non è certo un giovanissimo, come testimoniano le foto di repertorio che lo ritraggono con Patti Smith, con Lou Reed, con Andy Warhol. La sua voce, calda, profonda e screziata dal tempo, cavalca su solchi battuti da grandi anime del lato più intimo e sincero del rock, la ballata folk. Somiglia per certi versi a Tom Waits e per altri a Leonard Cohen, ma è meno artefatto dell’uno e dell’altro. E poi, quando il suo fuoco sembra ritrarsi, una nuova vampa, calda e avvolgente, viene a sostenerlo: è la voce di Inge. Su tutto, il violino di Michele Gazich, magia nella magia, che genera sussulti di profondità, cambiamenti di temperatura e di stato, mutamenti alchemici e distillazioni.
